The media’s narrative versus the truth


The narrative: main stream media has done overtime pushing the “transitory” inflation myth in various forms

The GOP members of the Ways and Means Committee points out the gap between the Democrat media narrative and the truth.

Democrats have tried dismissing inflation as “transitory” and blaming corporate greed for high prices, but Americans aren’t buying it. Now, commentators like New York Times columnist Paul Krugman are saying inflation is being blown out of proportion and it’s not as bad as reported in the media.

But with prices soaring and workers losing three years of wage gains, Americans across the political spectrum believe inflation is a real problem, according to a new poll from the Winston Group.

Earlier this month, the Winston Group found that 75 percent of Americans across the board believed inflation was a serious problem.

In thinking about the current state of inflation, which comes closer to your view? Overall Rep Indep Dem $50K-$100K 100K+
Inflation is a very serious problem. 72 85 75 59 76 76
Stories about inflation are receiving too much focus by the news media to undermine confidence in the Biden administration. 20 10 15 33 19 21

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • By more than 3:1, Americans across the board believe inflation is a real problem (72-20).
  • This was consistent among a majority of Democrats (59-33).

BACKGROUND:

Bidenflation is crushing America’s middle class and Main Street.

  • President Biden claims that inflation has peaked, dismissing it as “transitory” and a “high class problem,” but it’s clear that inflation is only continuing to rise and hits lower- and middle-income Americans the hardest.
  • The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and the Penn-Wharton Budget Model have also estimated that President Biden’s inflation tax costs the typical family $5,000 a year, and, in particular, hits the middle class and those just starting their career or families.
  • With more than 60 percent of Main Street businesses reporting they were forced to raise their prices to keep up with inflation – which has reached the highest rate since 1982 – economists are warning the U.S. is at risk of a wage-price spiral.
  • For working Americans, in just one year, Democrats wiped out three years of wage gains through inflation.

Anything to save Joe

Either this amounts to “anything to save Joe” or “anything to save the liberal-left agenda.”

The truth: the silent price you’ll pay for Joe Biden’s mounting national debt

The Wall Street Journal outlines the dire circumstances we will find ourselves in over some time to come.

After an unexpectedly hawkish Federal Reserve raised interest rates by 75 basis points for the third consecutive time last week, all eyes were on markets and the economy. Few, however, paid attention to the effect persistent inflation and higher interest rates will have on Uncle Sam.

That’s surprising. The gross interest expense on the national debt hit $88 billion in August, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement. That’s $1.06 trillion a year. Interest on the national debt is exploding and heading toward what economists refer to as a “doom loop”—the vicious circle in which the government’s borrowing to pay interest generates yet more interest and yet more borrowing.

Even if Joe gets tossed out, the effects of Joe’s policies will linger

It may be years or decades, but we will be dealing with Joe’s habit of overspending for quite some time.

The narrative: UN rep mentions using Google to censor climate-change searches because “we own the science”

The Independent Sentinel reports on the bravado of one UN official as she thinks bureaucrats (not scientists) determine science.

The U.N. Secretary for Global Communications Melissa Fleming, a World Economic Forum member, proudly admitted that the elites work with Google and other platforms to censor political information.

Fleming says they “own the science” on “climate change.” Opposing viewpoints have now been pushed down in search results through their partnership with Google.

“You know, we partnered with Google, for example. If you Google climate change, you will, at the top of your search, you will get all kinds of U.N. resources,” Fleming revealed. “We started this partnership when we were shocked to see that when we’d googled climate change, we were getting incredibly distorted information right at the top.”

“So, we are becoming much more proactive,” she went on. “You know, we own the science and we think that the world, you know, should know it, and the platforms themselves also do. But again… it’s a huge, huge challenge that I think all sectors of society need to be very active.”

This is deeply troubling. Powerful elitists can manipulate us with their connections to all communication. The fact that she can boast that they “own the science” should send a chill through every American.

Liberals own our lack of education, but not the facts

Liberals own the shout-down culture and the concept of block-the-president-from-twitter-because-he-tweets-mean.

Liberals own the concept of math and good grammar being racist.

Likewise, when it comes to facts, liberals like to invent their own.

The truth: Scientists point toward cycles in hurricane appearances

The Wall Street Journal also reports in a recent article how true scientists have come to deal with the current narrative of ever-intensifying storms fed by global warming.

Authors Chris Landsea, head of the tropical analysis and forecast branch at the federal National Hurricane Center in Miami, and Tom Knutson, senior scientist at the government’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton, N.J., concluded:

Atlantic hurricanes display distinct busy and quiet periods: Busy hurricane decades occurred in the late 19th century, mid-20th century, and from the mid-1990s onward, but quieter decades in the early 20th century and in the 1970s to early-1990s.

These multi-decadal variations in Atlantic tropical storms and hurricanes have been linked to a phenomenon called the Atlantic Multidecadal Variability, which may be primarily natural internal variability or aerosol-driven.

This may be repeated many times, but it will not penetrate the liberal mind

Although scientists may repeat facts like these numerous times, those facts will not change the liberal argument since it seems to base itself in emotion rather than facts.
