Warren: 39-Year High Inflation Is Partly Due to Companies Using Talk about Inflation as Chance to Price Gouge

On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) reacted to the 39-year high increase in the consumer price inflation index by arguing that part of the problem is “giant corporations who say, wow, a lot of talk about high prices and inflation, this is a chance to get in there and not only pass along costs, but to inflate prices beyond that and just engage in a little straightforward price gouging.”

Warren said, “Now are high prices a problem? You bet they are. But there are a lot of different pieces that are going into this. Some of this is companies that are passing along high prices that come from the manufacturing sector that come in their ability to sell goods. But some of this is coming from kinks in the supply chain. And there’s evidence that these are starting to untwist. But you have to remember, there’s another part to what’s going on, too, and that is these giant corporations who say, wow, a lot of talk about high prices and inflation, this is a chance to get in there and not only pass along costs, but to inflate prices beyond that and just engage in a little straightforward price gouging. We now live in a time when profit margins are higher than they have been in 70 years. Two-thirds of the publicly traded companies in this country are seeing higher profit margins than they did before the pandemic. Now, your profit margins don’t go up just because your costs went up. They go up because you saw an opportunity and you said, as the chair of the Federal Reserve said to me yesterday in testimony, why are they raising prices? ‘[B]ecause they can.’ Long term, we want to get those prices more under control. We need competitive markets, and that means enforcing our antitrust laws, enforcing the laws that promote competition in this country that help small businesses compete. That’s going to help us, not just in the short run, but that’s what’s going to help us in the long run too.”

Fireworks! Kamala Harris Snaps at Savannah Guthrie When Asked About Biden’s Disastrous Press Conference (VIDEO)

Kamala Harris on Thursday snapped at “Today” host Savannah Guthrie when asked about Joe Biden’s disastrous press conference.

Joe Biden jumbled his words and refused to take responsibility for his failures during Wednesday’s presser.

What really stood out was Dementia Joe’s comments on Russia and Ukraine.

Joe Biden essentially gave a green light to Putin to enter Ukraine.

“My guess is he will move in,” Biden said of Putin invading Ukraine. “He has to do something.”

Biden’s comments were so dangerous that White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki released a statement after the presser to ‘clarify’ the president’s statements.

“President Biden has been clear with the Russian President: If any Russian military forces move across the Ukrainian border, that’s a renewed invasion, and it will be met with a swift, severe, and united response from the United States and our Allies,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement. “President Biden also knows from long experience that the Russians have an extensive playbook of aggression short of military action, including cyberattacks and paramilitary tactics. And he affirmed today that those acts of Russian aggression will be met with a decisive, reciprocal, and united response.”

“Today” host Savannah Guthrie asked Kamala Harris about Biden’s presser and his comments on Russia-Ukraine and his statements questioning the legitimacy of the 2022 elections.

Harris snapped after Guthrie pointed out the Democrats’ election bills were debated and didn’t pass through the senate.

“Well, to the point, because those bills were debated, the bills were debated and they didn’t pass,” Guthrie said.

“If I may finish! if I may finish!” Harris said interrupting Guthrie.

Harris also lost her cool when Guthrie pointed out how Joe Biden gave the green light for Putin to invade Ukraine.

EPIC: Joe Manchin Shames Democrats in Their Attempt to Nuke Filibuster in Order to Pass Freedom to Cheat Bill (VIDEO)

Last night Democrats were unable to change the rules of the US Senate in order to pass their Freedom to Cheat bill. Their proposed legislation would have eliminated voter ID, prevented states from cleaning voter rolls, would have allowed for ballots to be turned in days after the election, and would have allowed for illegal ballot harvesting. It would have destroyed elections in the country and they knew this. That’s why they wanted it and the fake news media promoted it.

The vote failed 52-48 with Democrats Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema joining Republicans in the vote.

Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) gave an epic speech before the final vote. He helped defeat the communist onslaught for another day.

“I cannot support such a perilous course for this nation when elected leaders are sent to Washington to unite our country, not to divide our country,” he argued.

“Let this change happen in this way, and the Senate will be a body without rules,” Manchin warned.

“We’ve changed the rules,” in the past, Manchin said. “But we changed them with the rules. We didn’t break the rules to change the rules. But all of a sudden now we just can’t do it anymore. Just got to blow it up.”

“The rule book means that the rules changes are done on the basis of broad, bipartisan consensus, not imposed on the minority by raw majority power,” he went on. “No matter who is in power.”

BREAKING: Voter GA Confirms Over 100,000 Ballots in Georgia 2020 Election Missing Valid Chain of Custody Documentation, Additionally Drop Box Videos Have Been Destroyed

Voter GA held a press conference today at 10 am Eastern.  During the conference, the VoterGA team released two bombshells that prove the 2020 Election in the state should never have been certified.  

The first item involves the chain of custody documentation gathered and maintained during the 2020 Election.  All ballots are to be accounted for with proper custody activities performed and documented.  Documentation should be available for all ballots that come in the door.  (Remember, Biden was given the state by only a 12,000 vote margin.)

We have noted this for months in Georgia and now VoterGA provided proof that this is the case.  We first reported a year ago that over 400,000 ballots in Georgia don’t have the proper evidence (chain of custody documentation) to show that the ballots entered the election process legitimately.

In June of 2021, a Fulton County election official confirmed that one in four absentee ballots in the county did not have proper chain of custody documentation.

In September we reported that the results in Georgia were illegitimate because there is no evidence that proper chain of custody documentation was recorded and maintained for tens of thousands of ballots.

IT’S ALL ABOUT CHAIN OF CUSTODY DOCUMENTATION – Georgia’s 2020 Election Comes Down to This

Today Voter GA provided evidence that 100,000 ballots lack the proper chain of custody documentation in Georgia which is required by law.  Voter GA also reported that the video coverage of the ballot drop boxes inserted into the 2020 Election has either been deleted or is of such poor quality that they would never be able to be used to determine the content of nighttime drop-offs.

If anyone can insert any ballot into any election, then we have no legitimate elections.  Georgia’s election never should have been certified.
