Nearly three years after the U.S President, Donald Trump, who gave the American people full-time yearly increase in earnings of 2.1 % and 3.0 %, for men and women respectively, real household incomes increased at a historic rate for every economic group, and made the nation energy independent for the first time since Nixon, was run out on rails by the political elite of both parties, with willing aid of the Corporate Media Complex, many of us the American populace are having WTF enteral discussions when looking at the horrific state of the nation today under the reign of Joseph Biden. Though a recent NBC poll told us that 59% of registered voters disapprove of Biden’s handling of the economy. The question of the most passive observer is what are the other 41% looking at? Props to the National News Media Complex for blinding the American people to how we, particularly in the middle-class, are being slowly cooked like the proverbial frog in the pot of boiling water by this Administration and it’s policies – socially, economically, and politically. Biden told us exactly the plans that he had in store for the American people.
We should have all known that we as a nation were going to be hurled into an exact reverse direction of the Trump Administration economically and it was not going to be done kindly when the very first thing Biden did once elected was to unleash unholy hell upon the nation’s gas and energy sector and America’s energy sovereignty by putting a stop to new oil and gas leases on federal lands and waters and stalling decisions on these leases. He canceled the Keystone XL pipeline and suspended oil and gas leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and New Mexico. This move alone immediately hit the middle-class and lower-class Americans directly in the wallets and would dramatically decrease their standard and quality of living.
Oil is in everything
The number of products that we use and depend on in our lives that come from oil and gas is astounding, and unfortunately, most of us are completely ignorant of. For starters, the U.S Energy Department reports that the manufacturing of over 6,000 everyday products and high-tech devices are derivatives of oil and natural gas. Remember when Trump was pushed out we could get gas at the pump for an average of $2.4 per gallon. As of August 30, the average price of regular gas was approx. $3.83, according to www.newsweek.com. The International Association of Oil and Gas Producers’ website www.iogp.org, illustrates how the impact of reducing domestic gas and oil production impacts every corner of our lives economically:
- Vehicles – car seats, tires, and bumpers.
- Construction – paint, caulking, roofing shingles, asphalt, pipes, hard hats, safety goggles, and other equipment.
- Clothing-manufactured fibers are petroleum-based, such as nylon, polyester, acrylic, and spandex.
- Petroleum-porting equipment: surfboards, basketballs, and skate wheels, to name but a few.
- Medical – are heart valves and artificial limbs made from petroleum, but also much of the cleaning and safety products medical personnel use. Aspirins and other pharmaceuticals also contain petroleum.
- Agriculture – fertilizers, herbicides, and insecticides to protect the products from invasive plants or insects.
- Just to name a few..
Biden’s attack on the Middle-Class
So, no one with any slither of economic sense would say that hammering our energy foundation and making domestic energy resources, such as coal, oil, natural gas, hydro, and the exploration thereof less accessible, would not severely hurt us economically and reduce our standard of living for every American from the bottom to the top of the economic level, the middle class in particular. The Administration knew it would.
In the July article in the National Review they even illustrate how the Democrats and Progressives have made the decline of the middle class a focal point:
Biden has been the worst U.S. president for the American people in the past 40 + years. But, if the Media Complex isn’t blasting his negatives, showing how feeble his, or reporting how detrimental his policies are to the nation, and make the most important quality of who should be leader is personality and if he offends anyone and not his effectiveness and production and benefit his policies have on the nation, than Biden’s great and all is good. Right?
Voters remorse, maybe
Gone are the days of just 3 years ago when U.S. companies were aflush with cash, giving huge raises to the rank and file, expanding and growing their businesses. Today according to a report in the Investors Business Daily, 13 non-financial companies account for nearly 40% of the $2.6 trillion held by all of the companies in the S&P 500 sit on a massive cash pile. S&P 500 companies now have enough cash to give $7,926 to every man, woman and child in the U.S. According to a recent article in theBlaze.com, the crippling side effect of the Biden Administration’s runaway spending, gross reduction of wealth creation, coupled with massive tax increaes on U.S taxpayers, “a family purchasing $200 worth of groceries in 2020 would spend more than $238 today for the same products, based on the federal government’s consumer price index calculations, which likely undercount inflation.” This article went on to point out how these policies are devastating the Americans on the lower end of the income ladder,” in September 2023, real cash savings for the bottom 40% of earners was 92.4% of what it had been in March 2020… Only the top 20% of earners have maintained the savings they gained in 2020 and 2021, but their cash has been rapidly depleting and is now on track to dip below March 2020 savings early in 2024.”
Is there one economic policy that has been enacted by this Administration that does not benefit our nation’s enemies, particularly Communist China?… I’ll wait….
What is crazy, with all of this disastrous political news of this Administration, the National News Media Complex would have the low-information citizens believe that he is the greatest President EVER and is unbeatable as we approach another election period. And the very groups that staunchly support the Democrat Party and this Administration [Americans and women] are the very ones most negatively impacted by it’s economic policies. This all goes to show, that if you can control the public debate and narrative, control the definition of words, and make the lie truth, one can have you believe that pigs can indeed fly.
