Inflation at 8.65 percent, gas at $5.26 a gallon, diesel at $5.75, interest rates up, a $467 reduction in purchasing power per month on every American family. However, that is not important; we must concentrate our anger on the January 6th riot in the District of Columbia.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the Jan. 6 “terror attack” resulted in “almost 10 dead.” To say the American left has cooked the books in this equation is an understatement. The fact checkers at FactCheck.org do not say it is false; they stated, “we take no position in the debate over whom to include in the deaths from the riots.”
The mainstream media use a figure from one to 10, so let’s look at the numbers. Included are a drug overdose, four to five D.C. police officers’ suicides weeks and even months afterward (suicides that were not line of duty deaths), two heart attacks and one shooting death an unarmed five-foot-tall woman killed by a Capital Police officer who is referred to as a hero, and a stroke two days after Jan. 6.
How many times can the media lie to us, and the 32% hardcore left blindly believe them? “Officer David Brian Sicknick was beaten to death with a fire extinguisher and died on Jan. 6, and the crowd was an armed mob on Jan. 6,” all printed as facts, and many fact checkers in the media still do not say it was wrong or not a fact.
“Come on Man!” Officer Sicknick died of a stroke days later and his autopsy showed no blunt force trauma. The District of Columbia Police officers that sadly committed suicide weeks and months after Jan. 6 were included in the count. What ever happened to the reports of two bombs planted in the capital area? Placed by the protesters? Related to the protesters?
No firearms were seen or seized on Jan. 6. Hundreds of hours of video were viewed dozens of times, frame by frame, by experts at the Federal Bureau of Investigation found no, zero, firearms or illegal weapons; however, for weeks afterward the media reported it as an armed insurrection, terrorist attack and murderous act.
The American economy is bad and getting worse; leftists deny it or try to shift the blame, but just go shopping or fill up your car if you can afford it, and tell yourself it is all the fault of Covid-19, Vladimir Putin, evil energy companies, shipping companies or the Tooth Fairy, but not President Biden’s truly ill-advised energy policies.
The Jan. 6 hearings are covered wall to wall by the media to divert our attention from the war in Ukraine; our President was fine with it as long as it was a small, not massive, invasion of a sovereign nation by the Russian Federation?
Many on the left have said gas should be $15 per gallon to help the transition to solar and wind, most recently Steven Colbert, but it has long been a goal of the radical left. Are we ready for $15 a gallon gas? Can the economy survive without going into a full-blown depression? No, but who cares? We must save the planet before the 2030, which irrefutable scientific fact says will be the end of the world, as were the three past “end of all life on Earth” guarantees before it. We must believe climate change or be called a damned science deniers and if you denied the science, treatment for cancer should be withheld; socialism in action.
The Jan. 6 hearings are meant to divert our attention from the pain the economy is bringing to every American family, with the annual income reduction of more than $5,000 per household. As Rush Limbaugh called them, the liberals’ willing accomplices in the media are working hard to divert our attention from the pain President Biden’s policies have, are and will cause you and I to look to the Jan. 6 riots.
The media show is also designed to destroy President Donald Trump. They tried the paid Russian agent hoax, and the two impeachments with the false charge that he was behind the attempt to overthrow the government, both false. The Democrats and media even used the death of officer Sicknick as part of the impeachment, knowing full well that he was not beaten to death.
Do they have no shame? All is fair in the march to socialism.
At the gas station yesterday, someone had posted a sticker on the pump a picture of President Biden pointing to the cost per gallon with a caption “I did that.”
The truth hurts Mr. President; unleash the American energy industry and begin the end this ongoing economic tragedy. My opinion.
