President Joe Biden was hammered for December’s 40-year-high inflation report by members of the establishment media; Washington, DC, insiders; and lawmakers.

As Biden promised to restore the economy from the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, the economy has instead been inflicted with inflation not seen since 1982.

“That was the fastest 12-month pace since 1982 and the seventh straight month of inflation above 5 percent. In November, CPI was up 6.9 percent,” Breitbart News’ John Carney detailed.

Others gave their reactions, slamming the president for the inflation hike, which amounts to a hidden tax increase on American workers.

Inflation is a tax on every American.

It has gone up every month of Joe Biden’s presidency.https://t.co/qZFbf8fWun

— Rep. Elise Stefanik (@RepStefanik) January 12, 2022

Inflation is up 7%, and @POTUS is talking about a federal takeover of elections, and breaking a filibuster he defended for decades. This guy needs to get serious!

Inflation just hit 7%, the highest rate since 1982.

But don’t worry, Biden’s hard at work calling Americans racist for wanting voter ID. #BringBackMeanTweets

This is what Biden has to offer. A horrible performance by a terrible president. https://t.co/EfE1SWpMcO

President Biden spent 2021 urging Washington Democrats to dismiss rising prices as ‘transitory’ and focus on their reckless tax & spending agenda that has only fueled inflation.

Inflation is now the highest it’s been in 40 years.

Despite what Joe Biden and the Democrats say, this is not happening “TO” them…

…this is happening “BECAUSE” of them.

Their destructive policies are making you pay higher prices for goods and services.

— J. Hogan Gidley (@JHoganGidley) January 12, 2022

Biden’s “bump in the road”: US inflation in 2021 was the highest in 4 decades. In December alone consumer prices were up 7% from a year earlier https://t.co/0QpWqh45S3 via @WSJ

Just bec investors expected 7% inflation doesn’t mean it’s ok! Every move by @JoeBiden WH has made price hikes worse – on energy, relief payments, mandates etc

— Liz Peek (@lizpeek) January 12, 2022

Once again, durable goods (cars, TVs, computers, appliances) in the lead for inflation, at 16.8% YoY not seas adjusted

Nondurables (food, clothing) in 2nd, 10.2%

Services (travel, healthcare, education) w/ least price growth @ 4%, in part because so many services remain high risk pic.twitter.com/udjbcfdEZs

New York Governor Blames ‘Illegal Gun’ in Fatal Shooting of NYPD Officer

Published

new-york-governor-blames-‘illegal-gun’-in-fatal-shooting-of-nypd-officer

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) blamed an “illegal gun” in the fatal shooting of NYPD officer Jason Rivera on Friday night.

Rivera, 22, was shot and killed and a second officer, Wilbert More, 27, was shot and wounded, Breitbart News reported.

The shooting suspect, Lashawn McNeil, 47, opened fire on Rivera and More as they approached him in a long hallway, CBS New York noted. McNeill was then shot twice by a third officer.

On Saturday, Hochul tweeted, “Last night, a shot from an illegal gun took the life of a NYPD officer.” 

Last night, a shot from an illegal gun took the life of a @NYPDnews officer.

When I say we’re going to do everything we can to stop the scourge of illegal guns in our state, it’s not just talk. We are tripling funding for efforts to get these guns off the streets. pic.twitter.com/zXv0xbL4Em

— Kathy Hochul (@GovKathyHochul) January 22, 2022

“When I say we’re going to do everything we can to stop the scourge of illegal guns in our state, it’s not just talk. We are tripling funding for efforts to get these guns off the streets,” Hochul added.

New York Mayor Eric Adams (D) responded to the shooting death of Rivera by calling for more gun control, Breitbart News reported

New York has some of the most stringent gun controls in the country. Mike Bloomberg-affiliated Everytown for Gun Safety ranks New York No. 3 in the nation “for gun law strength.”

Those laws include everything the Democrats are pushing at the federal level under the guise of safety, including universal background checks, a “high capacity” magazine ban, an “assault weapons” ban, a permit requirement to buy a handgun, a red flag law, gun storage requirements, “ghost gun” regulations, and a prohibition against gun possession by felons, among other controls.

McNeil, the man who allegedly shot the NYPD officers Friday night, is a convicted felon.

Gingrich: January 6 Committee, AG Garland ‘Lynch Mob’ ‘Face a Real Risk of Jail for the Kind of Laws They Are Breaking’

gingrich:-january-6-committee,-ag-garland-‘lynch-mob’-‘face-a-real-risk-of-jail-for-the-kind-of-laws-they-are-breaking’

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich sees alleged abuses by the House Select Committee and the Department of Justice investigating the January 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol as having consequences.

During an appearance on FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Gingrich suggested those who he said were misusing and abusing the process could “face a real risk of jail” for the laws they had broken during the so-called investigation.

“Well, you have, both with Attorney General Garland and with this select committee on January 6, people who have run amok,” he said. “They are breaking the rules. They are going after people in a way which is reminiscent of the British monarchy using closed-door systems that we outlawed deliberately because we’d seen it. We knew what it was like. And they’re running over people’s civil liberties. And what they need to understand is, on January 4 next year, you’re going to have a Republican majority in the House and a Republican majority in the Senate.”

“And all these people who’ve been so tough and so mean and so nasty are going to be delivered subpoenas for every document, every conversation, every tweet, every email, because I think it’s clear that this — these are people who are literally just running over the law, pursuing innocent people, causing them to spend thousands and thousands of dollars in legal fees, for no justification,” Gingrich continued. “And it’s basically a lynch mob.”

“Unfortunately, the attorney general of the United States has joined that lynch mob and is totally misusing the FBI,” he added. “And I think, when you have a Republican Congress, this is all going to come crashing down, and the wolves are going to find out that they’re now sheep. And they’re the ones who are, in fact, going to, I think, face a real risk of jail for the kind of laws they are breaking.”

After Joe Biden’s first year in office, NOT ONE participant in Face the Nation’s focus group believes America is in a better place.

CBS host Margaret Brennan was stunned when the entire panel of six participants, including Biden voters, said America is on the wrong path.

“During the course of the pandemic, “Face the Nation” has been listening to Americans, through Zoom, to get their thoughts on COVID, the economy and how the government is handling it all. On Friday, we checked back in with six of them,” host Margaret Brennan said.

“Who feels like we are in a better place now than we were a year ago?” Brennan asked the panel of six participants.

Every participant said no.

Margaret Brennan was stunned: “No one believes we are in a better spot?”

“I just don’t understand. I thought this is going to be a president for the people of the people,” said Beth, an Independent voter.

Even the Biden voters on the panel blasted Joe Biden.
