The inflation rate climbed to nine percent on Wednesday for the first-time since 1981, signaling another rise in consumer prices. The real wage fell to -3.6%, as Americans have continued financial squeezed.
There’s no end in sight, either. Despite consumer prices rising, Democrats in Washington continue to push for an additional few trillion dollars. As for any empathy concerning the plight of those in the poor and middle-class, don’t go to the White House for any. They made this statement.

I will translate this for you.
That’s the message the White House is conveying by putting out that insulting, nonsensical statement, in response to an inflation report that came in at nearly 15 percent higher than when Biden took office. Keep in mind that the last-month 9.1% number is being compared with June 2021. But inflation had already spiked over four percent by that point in Biden’s tenure.
Besides, the excuses being given don’t make any sense. Consider the fact that almost 50% of the increase in monthly income shown in this report is energy. So, what? That would still mean inflation is at about 8.9 percent, higher than May’s 8.6 percent, and a record-high under the current president. That’s the positive spin the White House wants to roll with? Really?
They think that you are stupid. They truly believe they can wave their hand, call numbers that were just released “out-of-date,” and complete some kind of Jedi mind-trick on the American people. 33% more eggs than they cost a year ago. Coffee prices are up 15% The double-digit increase in meat products is a sign of things to come. And Biden’s message is “those numbers are out of date.” You’ve got to be kidding me.
Even the mention of gas prices being down 30 cents–but supposedly not being reflected in the June report–is false. At the moment, there are only 13 days left in July. This means that most of July’s days were cited as having been shortened by gas price drops. Are This is reflected by the June report.
This game of pretending Americans are idiots isn’t a new thing either. It has been a tradition in the Biden administration for quite some time.

How many times were we told inflation wasn’t going to be an issue? It would only be temporary? It had stalled? It was supposed to fall (that happened just last month). Biden and his crew have repeatedly made proclamations based on no evidence whatsoever. It’s gaslighting of the highest order, and they keep doing it because they think they can get away with treating Americans like they are idiots. Heck, they are doing the same thing regarding the recession that has already arrived, pointing at the sky and insisting it’s not blue.
Voters need to show this president and his party in November that they aren’t going to be treated like children. That’s the only way to push back on the arrogance and disinformation constantly coming from the White House.
