    MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle argued Americans have to put the high inflation rate and rising costs of food and other every day items "in perspective" on Sunday. The consumer price index rose 6.2% year over year in October, according to the Department of Labor, the largest annual gain since November 1990. And prices rose 0.9% month over month. But the soaring costs, Ruhle said on NBC, were expected after the worldwide pandemic, before telling anchor Willie Geist that Americans "on average" can actually afford the higher prices. "The dirty little secret here, Willie, while nobody likes to pay more, on average,...

    NBC News senior business correspondent and MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle said Sunday on “Today” that the “dirty little secret” about soaring inflation was, on average, people have the money to pay more for goods. Ruhle said, “Nobody knows exactly when they’re going down, but you have to put all this in perspective. This inflation is not in isolation, and the government predicted it was going to be a challenging recovery, recovery all tied to Covid. So it’s why you see things like that expanded child tax credit. You’ve got the families of over 60 million kids, on average, getting $430...

    The move comes a day after leader Kim Jong Un warned North Koreans that they must expect to eat less food until the country re-opens its borders with China in 2025. 'Black swan meat is delicious and has medicinal value,' while the bird's industrial breeding will 'improve the people's living standard', the state-run Korean Central News Agency reported. A researcher from the country's agriculture ministry told KCNA in 2020 that the black swan meat has more protein than other meats and is easier to digest, adding that it also has 'anticancer' properties. Despite the current hardships the North Korean people...

  • America’s Upside Down Economy Just Took Another Bizarre Turn: Is this a good economy or a bad economy? Well, that all depends on who you are talking to.

    Is this a good economy or a bad economy? Well, that all depends on who you are talking to. For most Americans, economic conditions have been absolutely horrible ever since the COVID pandemic first arrived. More than 100,000 businesses have permanently shut down, approximately 10 million Americans are in danger of being evicted from their homes, and weekly unemployment claims have been above the old record set in the early 1980s every single week for nearly an entire year. Meanwhile, the absolutely insane polices that the Federal Reserve and our politicians in Washington have been pursuing have made the wealthy...

    Power-hungry Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York is singlehandedly starving New York City’s restaurants. By executive edict, Cuomo ordered the city’s restaurants, which were barely getting along as it was, to once again shut down their indoor dining services completely. Cuomo the grinch did so just in time for the holidays, when restaurants were hoping to make up for at least some of the revenue they have lost this year. By decimating the restaurant industry, Cuomo is also destroying the livelihoods of low and middle-income New Yorkers. For many restaurants, Cuomo’s draconian order is their death sentence. Restaurants are closing...

We were dining outdoors in the middle of our meal,” he said in a Tuesday appearance on CBS This Morning.

    Rep. Dan Crenshaw questioned Monday whether the trip to Puerto Rico by congressional Democrats was a good decision amid the deadlock on border security. About 30 lawmakers traveled to Puerto Rico -- with their families and lobbyists -- for a winter retreat over the weekend despite the partial government shutdown. "It sounds like they had a lot of fun. They've also been talking a lot about the plight that federal workers see themselves in," Crenshaw said on The Story. "They're not wrong about that, but if we're gonna talk about that then I don't know if these excursions to Puerto...

    FRENCH President Emmanuel Macron has been branded “irresponsible” for suggesting the introduction of “annual quotas” on migration as a topic for part of the three-month national debate aimed at mollifying yellow vest protesters.In a sweeping letter to the French pubic, Mr Macron said he had heard the public’s anger and shared its impatience for a “more prosperous country and a fairer society”. He then mentioned the possibility of introducing annual immigration quotas, saying it would not apply to asylum status. He said: “As regards immigration, once our asylum obligations have been met, would you like us to be able to...

    President Trump is working around the clock during the government shutdown trying to negotiate with Pelosi and Schumer to secure border wall funding. The Democrats however, are partying at a beach resort in Puerto Rico on day 22 of the government shutdown. The Democrats don’t care about the 800,000 federal workers who are currently not receiving a paycheck. Democrat Senator Bob Menendez was spotted hanging out with a bikini-clad “colleague” on the beach in Puerto Rico three weeks into the shutdown without a care in the world. The Hispanic Caucus of liberal Democrats is holding their retreat at a posh...

    On Christmas Eve, the Obama White House posted on social media a photograph of a huge ginger bread house on display in the executive mansion, which had some Americans thinking more Marie Antoinette than Merry Christmas. "Let them eat gingerbread," one social media user said in response. The 500-pound gingerbread house is an exact replica of the White House and was designed by Executive Pastry Chef Susan Morrison. "A lot of love goes into this 500 pound gingerbread house!" Morrison is quoted in the White House post. Interestingly, The Associated Press noted that this year's gingerbread house differs from past...

    As working dinners go, President Obama's meal Monday night in Paris with French President Francois Hollande, Secretary of State John Kerry and others wasn't too shabby. No cartons of takeout -- instead, the gang fueled up after a long day of climate talks at L'Ambroisie, the three-Michelin-starred temple of gastronomie in the Marais neighborhood. Per the Michelin Guide, the ornately be-chandelier-ed dining room is known for "incomparable classicism and an immortal feast for the senses." Perhaps worried that Obama would create an international faux pas by ordering a burger or a margarita (two of his faves), a reporter asked what...
