For July 4th, White House Pushed Fiction that Food Prices are Down Since Biden’s Election

The Biden White House attempted to pass the fiction that Uncle Joe had helped lower the cost of food.

The Biden White House attempted to fool America with the fiction that Uncle Joe had helped lower the cost of food as Americans prepared to celebrate the Independence Day holiday.

Americans cherish the July Fourth celebrations, usually with cookouts and barbeques. But this year, the costs for everything Americans need for such a celebration has gone up since the Trump years. But Joe Biden’s propagandists want you to disbelieve your experience and accept his lies.

He says prices have gone down since he came to office:

This claim, of course, is mostly false. While some of the prices may be slightly less since 2020, this has zero to do with Biden’s policies and more to do with the end of the many and sundry coronavirus policies that hampered the U.S. economy in 2020.

Indeed, even the very Farm Bureau report that the White House tried to use to “prove” its lies, actually defeats the White House narrative. Per Breitbart News, That report reads:

Farm Bureau analysis reveals the average cost of a summer cookout for 10 people remains affordable at $59.50, or less than $6 per person. The cost for the cookout is down just 16 cents (less than 1%) from last year, but 8 percent higher compared to 2019.

The White House went on to claim that beef prices are lower under Biden. But this is also not true.

The Farm Bureau notes:

“Beef and pork processing plant disruptions that occurred in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic have been resolved, leading to lower retail ground beef and pork chop prices in 2021 compared to 2020,” Nigh said. “However, consumers looking a bit farther back to compare prices are seeing higher prices for ground beef, pork chops and chicken breasts compared to pre-pandemic (2019) prices. That’s due to continued strong demand for American-grown beef and pork from both U.S. and international consumers.”

In other words, Biden is citing only the partial information that suits his propaganda.

And… isn’t it funny that Biden didn’t mention gasoline prices?

As of July 4, the national gas price average had risen to $3.13, nearly one full dollar more than July 4, 2020 when the average nationwide price was just $2.17, the AAA reported.

Gunman Bricked to Death After Opening Fire on Forth Worth Party

You don’t mess with Texas.

Published

You know what they say:  Don’t mess with Texas. This is the sort of placed where the locals have no problem reminding you, and swiftly, that you’re not from around here.  They are fiercely independent Americans, and they enjoy their freedom in their own unique way. Texans always seem to get their way, and they certainly have been known to find a unique solution to their problems. This is as true as ever this week. A gunman who opened fire at a party early Monday in Texas, fatally shooting one person, died after attendees struck him with bricks, authorities said. The incident began around 1 a.m. in the backyard of a Fort Worth home when an attendee became angry and left, the police department said in a statement. The person, identified by a Fort Worth police spokesperson only as a man, returned with a second person and got into an argument with other partygoers. The man opened fire, striking one person and causing a non-life-threatening injury, the statement said. But then… When people at the party began chasing him, he opened fire and they threw landscaping bricks at him, the statement said. Two people were struck by gunfire, one of them fatally, police said. The second person was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The gunman was pronounced dead at the scene, and has yet to be publicly identified.

Swastika Found Engraved at State Department Draws Condemnation

The Secretary of State was LIVID.

There’s nothing funny about the Nazi regime, and everyone knows it, except for a certain breed of adolescent dolt who’s simply looking to appear edgy and dangerous as some hormonal ploy to attract a mate. These are the kids that would draw toothbrush mustaches on the faces in the magazines, or throw up a sig heil behind the teacher’s back for a laugh. But this phase almost always fades as the years climb on, and most of these young idiots looks back at themselves in a perpetual state of cringe. This leaves us to assume that anyone continuing to exude such Hitleresque nonsense into adulthood is doing so very purposefully, and not with the naïveté of their younger years. At the State Department, this reality is causing a bit of concern. A swastika carved into an elevator car has been discovered at the State Department in Washington—in a location within the building’s security perimeter. The elevator is close to the office of the special envoy charged with monitoring and opposing anti-semitism, Axios reports. Secretary of State Antony Blinken emailed all employees Tuesday about the discovery. Blinken was livid. “The hateful graffiti has been removed and this incident will be investigated,” he wrote. Blinken is the stepson of a Holocaust survivor, per the Washington Post, and has emphasized the threat of anti-semitism, which he wrote “isn’t a relic of the past.” Officials have said President Biden will nominate an ambassador-at-large to deal with the problem; the Jerusalem Post called for such a position in an editorial this month. Hate has been on the rise in America in recent years, as white supremacist groups continue to recruit and spread their message online, and then, often violently, in real life.
