Even with the planned 8.7% “cost of living adjustment” on Social Security come January 2023, Americans will continue to hurt as it’s not near enough to keep up with the Democrats’ inflation figures.
White House Resident Joe Biden, his administration and corporate mainstream media try to keep the political focus on green energy, abortion, student loans and the anti-MAGA causes, while most Americans are concerned about more pressing issues.
Citizen’s primary attention is currently on illegal immigration, inflation, crime and lawful elections. During fiscal year 2022, over 2.4 million unlawful alien encounters have been documented on the southern border.
In 2016, Donald Trump won the nomination against the GOP lineup because he focused on what the majority of America was concerned about. Among his first trips as a candidate was to McAllen, Texas to expose what the media and others were attempting to bury–illegal immigration and high crime.
Even though Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Convention and Deep State (including FBI) attempted everything they could (illegally) do to win that election, they underestimated the amount of fake and harvested ballots they needed to beat Trump.
With New World Order, World Economic Forum, Chinese and George Soros-type funding, they overcompensated with an extreme excess of illegal ballots and activities in 2020.
Here is what the leftist communists (including Democrats, RINOS and Big Media) do not want to report or draw attention to:
ILLEGAL IMIGRATION & DRUG SMUGGLING
In 2022, America has experienced a dangerous 245% increase in illegal aliens from just three countries alone: Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Cuba.
As of today, 94 illegal immigrants on the Terrorist Screening Database were apprehended at ports of entry this fiscal year so far.
Biden’s disapproval rating on immigration is now over 60% with only 36% approving and this is from the RealClearPolitics average. A NewsNation poll indicates Americans believe Republicans will improve the immigration crisis by a 7-point margin.
A Telemundo poll of Florida Hispanic voters shows 50% approve Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R) decision to fly immigrants from San Antonio to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.
Even more alarming (not to mention buried in most Big Media reports) are the latest Department of Homeland Security figures that reveal border crossings were up 27% over 2021, which was the previous all-time record, and 419% over Donald Trump’s last year in office.
Although likely underreported, right at 4.7 million illegal immigrants have crossed the border since Biden took office. This amount is over the population of Louisiana, or Kentucky, or Oregon, or Connecticut, or Utah or 20 other states.
In August, there were 203,597 illegal crossings of our southern border, which is an OVER 300% increase from August 2020.
Also, since Biden entered the White House, drug and human trafficking cartels made an estimated $13 billion smuggling illegal aliens across the border, and more than 850 immigrants died in fiscal 2022 while trying to cross – another record.
In September 2022′ alone, another record high was broken as more than 10,000 pounds of methamphetamine was seized at the border that month.
Fentanyl seizures from October 2020 through September 2021 were at a record breaking 11,201 pounds. One kilogram of fentanyl is equivalent to 500,000 lethal doses, making last year’s seizure equal to 2.5 billion fatal doses blocked from making their way into the country. In the past 12 months, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) doubled the record-high level confiscated a year earlier.
The surge in U.S. Customs and Border Protection seizures at the nation’s border is closely connected to the wave of drug overdose deaths occurring deep inside the U.S., which also hit a new high this year as a result of the prevalence of opioids.
The last figures from the Biden Administration came out in February 2022 and showed that more than 96,000 people died as a result of a drug overdose, up 30% from the previous year. We will likely get the next round of information after the November 2022 elections and probably by March.
Although Democrats and Big Media tend to say consumer confidence is “dim,” the reality is Americans are very concerned about inflation. The Biden Administration continues to punish the nation as Food, Gas and Energy costs continue to rise.
Last Thursday, despite the newly released data, revealed that consumer prices jumped by 8.2% year-over-year last month, Biden actually had the audacity to say he has made “progress” and that inflation really is on a 2% trajectory.
Meanwhile, as of October 26, 2022, American’s 401(k)s are now down 25.3% on average. In total, Biden’s shrinking economy has stolen a combined $2.1 TRILLION from these retirement savings,
Tax dollar paid economists are about as bad at predicting and reporting as the government and Deep State scientists are at declaring the benefits of Big Pharma drugs and vaccines, not to mention their faux climate change narratives.
The reality today:
Over 66% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck.
Over 70% have cut their spending considerably.
55% have limited spending capacity.
50% have shifted their shopping preferences.
Rather than focus on the crime crisis facing Americans, House Democrats continue their illegitimate January 6th committee’s sham hearings.
In the meantime, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Chicago, Illinois; Austin, Texas; Rochester, New York; St. Paul, Minnesota; Portland, Oregon; Tucson, Arizona; Toledo, Ohio; Baton Rouge, Louisiana; and Albuquerque, New Mexico, are breaking homicide records by leaps and bounds. (How many of these are Democrat controlled cities?)
As of this date, 259 police officers have been shot in 2022, including 50 fatally, according to the Fraternal Order of Police, an organization representing US law enforcement officers. Since Biden took office the number of officers shot increased 6%. Last year, 73 officers were intentionally killed in the line of duty, the most since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
“Biden administration policies have been an unmitigated disaster,” Jackson County, Texas Sheriff Kelly Janica said this week. “It’s out of control.”
For decades, multiple law enforcement agencies have combated traffickers of people, weapons, drugs and money using stolen vehicles along highways 281, 77 and 59. But the border invasion is “unprecedented the amount of stolen vehicles we’re catching,” Janica said. Since December, his team has found over 100 stolen vehicles, “and that includes four to five that got away from us.”
“All of the stolen vehicles being used are coming out of Harris County (Houston),” he said. “Cartels are paying fugitives to drive them to the border to pick up illegal aliens and bring them back north to Houston.”
Last Thursday Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) said the Biden administration’s decision to “deplete the (Strategic Petroleum Reserve) SPR emboldens our enemies abroad and does little” to help Americans at the fuel pump.
“Manipulating energy reserves to bring gas prices down from historic highs as the midterm elections approach is not an accomplishment, it is a national security risk,” Daines said.
The maximum capacity the SPR has ever reached was in 2010 at just over 726 million barrels. In mid-October, the SPR was more than 40 percent lower, sitting at just over 405 million barrels, SPR hasn’t dipped below 405 million barrels since 1984.
The Pew Research Center reported that their latest poll indicated 79 percent of respondents said the economy is “very important,” more than any other topic including crime, foreign policy and immigration.
Benchmark U.S. oil on Friday hovered around $85 per barrel. Oil futures prices for 2024 are already below $70 a barrel, said Andy Lipow, president of Lipow Oil Associates LLC. “That’s not enough to encourage future investments,”
Meanwhile gas and oil producers in the U.S. struggle with Biden’s ongoing supply chain problems and the effects of inflation.
Currently heating American homes is over 46% higher than it was when President Trump left office and 40% more than last year. Lower inventories and heightened government controls and mandates mean it will be even higher as we face November through March.
