    (NEXSTAR) – Temperatures around the country aren’t the only numbers reaching new heights. Gas prices are also heating up, reaching a nationwide average of $3.76 per gallon on Monday, according to AAA. The situation is way worse out West. In California, the average is $5. Washington isn’t far behind at $4.95. Gas prices typically rise in the summer, but the heat is making it even worse this year, industry experts say.
  • Clyburn: Biden’s Economic Poll Numbers Are Bad Because People ‘Are Sour’ Due to COVID

    On Thursday’s broadcast of “CNN This Morning,” Biden 2024 Campaign Co-Chair Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) responded to President Joe Biden’s poor economic poll numbers by stating that the numbers are bad because “people really got in a pretty sour mood during that pandemic,” people will see the impact of President Joe Biden’s economic policies, and “We have not spent enough time accentuating the positives that exist today.”

    It’s the economy, stupid. Those famous words from Democratic strategist James Carville must be haunting President Biden’s White House as the economy begins to slow — and just as the 2024 election moves into view. Most recently, the job market appears to be faltering, with March gains pegged at 236,000, way down from February’s 311,000 and the 334,000 recorded on average over the past six months. This is challenging for Biden, who hopes to run for reelection and has relied on solid employment gains to prove that his “economic plan is working.” It’s been a tough sell, seeing that inflation...
  • Ohio train disaster: the blame game takes a VERY strange twist

    03/01/2023 10:55:04 AM PST · by Red Badger · 24 replies
    “Hey, it wasn’t our fault! It was you!” “That’s what you guys always say. You just want us to pay the damages.” And around and around it goes. Even assuming the Ohio train disaster was a terrorist attack, lurking in the background is the day-in day-out transport of highly dangerous chemicals by rail crisscrossing the country. Who is responsible for THAT? Here’s an excerpt of a vital article from Doomberg: For its part, the freight rail companies are forced by the federal government to transport dangerous materials regardless of the peril such cargoes represent. In particular, they [the railroads] lament...

    Former and current Biden administration officials have reportedly blamed the National Archives for mishandling President Joe Biden’s classified documents stashed in three separate locations. According to a Friday CNN report that cited “former and current administration officials and others familiar with the process,” the National Archives refused to treat then-Vice President Biden’s records with the “same high regard” as it did former President Obama’s records. “While the National Archives sends staff members to the White House to gather files and papers of the President, they do not treat all vice presidential papers with the same high regard, officials said,” CNN...
  • Colorado mass shooting: Liberal media blame Republicans for tragedy over LGBTQ rhetoric

    Fox News ^ | 11/23/2022 | Nikolas Lanum
    Numerous liberal journalists and pundits appeared to blame Republicans, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Rep. Lauren Boebert, Colo., for Saturday’s tragic mass shooting in Colorado. Just after midnight, a gunman entered Club Q, an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado Springs, and immediately opened fire on the crowd. At least five people were killed, and another 25 injured. Several patrons inside the club confronted the gunmen and were able to subdue him before he continued his rampage. The suspect faces five counts of first-degree murder and five counts of a bias-motivated crime. Investigators as of Tuesday are still seeking a motive,...

    But this predictable attempt to make Donald Trump the scapegoat for closer-than-expected midterm election results is highly misleading, and an oversimplification in the extreme.The results of Tuesday night’s elections do not tell an easy story for those looking to pin the blame on Trump. Many Trump candidates—including J. D. Vance, Ted Budd, almost certainly Kari Lake and Adam Laxalt, potentially Blake Masters, and possibly (after the runoff) Herschel Walker—will have won their races in highly competitive swing states despite most being outspent by tens of millions of dollars.Where Republican candidates faltered, it was not just those who were chosen by...

    The Republicans had a pretty good midterm election despite what pundits are claiming. The GOP must win three of the remaining four Senate races to win control of the upper chamber — a goal well within reach as Republicans lead in Nevada and Wisconsin. And the party is within spitting distance of a House majority. But no red wave. A combination of better-than-expected Democratic enthusiasm and underperforming Republican candidates squandered several opportunities to flip House seats and give the GOP a sizable House majority in January. How did this happen? If you ask most of the media, the fault for...

    The Democrats’ blame game has already started one week from the midterm elections, as the party’s leadership begins to point fingers while analysts are predicting the election could be terrible for the one-party hold over Washington, DC. As analysts predict the Republicans will end the Democrats’ one-party rule in the nation’s capitol by regaining the majority in the United States House of Representatives and potentially the Senate, the left is already starting to point fingers at who will take the fall, multiple establishment outlets reported.

    Liberal media outlets and figures blamed a long-running water crisis in Jackson, Mississippi, on racism in the wake of Republican Gov. Tate Reeves declaring a state of emergency. --- Reeves warned residents of Jackson, the state’s capital, not to drink the tap water due to the failure of water pumps at the city’s main water treatment plant Monday after the Pearl River flooded. National Guard troops began assisting efforts to deliver bottled water to the city’s 180,000 residents. Many liberal media figures, including reporters from NBC and MSNBC hosts, claimed racism was the cause of the crisis.

    A majority of Americans believe that oil companies, in addition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, should be blamed for the recent spike in oil and gas prices, according to an ABC News poll. The poll found that 71 percent of those surveyed blame Putin for the spike in gas prices amid his country’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine while 68 percent said they blame oil and gas companies for the recent high gas prices.

    President Joe Biden plans to blame businesses for raising prices and higher inflation this week, as his poll numbers continue to plunge. The president has scheduled a speech on the economy and “lowering prices for the American people” at the White House on Tuesday, before he leaves for his Thanksgiving vacation in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
  • The outdated machine hampering the fight against Covid-19

    09/07/2021 12:01:54 PM PDT · by algore · 22 replies
    Major backlogs in processing patient data during the pandemic are forcing the healthcare sector to reassess its relationship with fax machines. As coronavirus cases surged in the city of Austin, Texas, last June, beleaguered public health officials instructed anyone with symptoms to act as though they had Covid-19. The reporting and tracing of new cases had slowed to a crawl, officials explained, partly due to an unexpected culprit: the fax machine. The machines had kicked into overdrive as the pandemic tightened its grip on the city, spitting out printout after printout of results from Covid-19 tests. "We were probably getting...

    The American-nurtured Afghan military of the last 20 years that had suffered thousands of prior casualties evaporated in a few hours in the encirclement of Kabul. Enlistees apparently calculated that their own meager chances with the premodern Taliban were still better than fighting as a dependency of the postmodern United States — despite its powerful diversity training programs. Forces more powerful than the Taliban, in places far more strategic, will now leverage an ideologically driven but predictably incompetent administration, a woke Pentagon and politically weaponized intelligence communities. Why not, when President Joe Biden trashes both American frackers and the Saudis...

    President Joe Biden issued a statement Saturday blaming former President Donald Trump after the Taliban rapidly took control of the majority of Afghanistan’s major cities. “When I came to office, I inherited a deal cut by my predecessor,” Biden wrote, complaining that Trump negotiated a deal “that left the Taliban in the strongest position militarily since 2001.”

    On April 5, 1933, under the pretext of a national emergency, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 6102, making it illegal for U.S. citizens to own gold. The decree forced Americans to sell their gold at an artificially low “official price.” If they refused, the government could hit them with stiff penalties: a $10,000 fine (equivalent to $205,000 today) and/or up to 10 years in prison. The government blatantly stole wealth from the American people. Many worry the U.S. government might confiscate gold again if it becomes desperate enough. I don’t think those fears are unfounded. The U.S. government’s...

    Some of the individuals facing charges for the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol building are employing a bizarre but predictable defense in the hopes of drumming up sympathy for their plight. At least three defendants claim they participated in the assault on the Capitol building because they were misled by misinformation spread by – you guessed it – former President Donald Trump.The Associated Press reported:Lawyers for at least three defendants charged in connection with the violent siege tell The Associated Press that they will blame election misinformation and conspiracy theories, much of it pushed by then-President Donald Trump,...

    Democrat, VP, Kamala Harris totally ignores the assignment she received from Faux Democrat POTUS, Joe Biden to take over controlling the "Border Crisis". Harris has not yet traveled south to the border states to assess the Biden massive failure. Harris has thumbed POTUS Biden and will not be the "Fall Guy" for the Biden failures!!! Shucks, one wonders whether Biden is the POTUS or simply a puppet of Democrat nutcases!!!

    It is no exaggeration to compare the COVID vaccine rollout to a Keystone Cops movie. When people spend hours frantically trying to find a website to register for vaccination while unused vials of it are discarded by day’s end, it doesn’t take a Sherlock Holmes to detect that something is wrong with the system. Part of the problem rests with efforts to prioritize vaccinations based upon individuals’ health status. Although it may intuitively — and perhaps ethically — make medical sense to inoculate people who are most likely to become seriously ill if infected, the nearly impossible logistics of doing...
