I ran across a quote from President Donald J. Trump today from 2020 and thought it was worth sharing with you, in light of the economic catastrophe that is just barely starting to get revved up under that F. Joe Biden guy. This was something that a lot of people thought was campaign hyperbole at the time. Even I thought that Mr. Trump was exaggerating a bit; I thought at the time, “Joe Biden surely won’t be the worst person in American history to occupy the Oval Office – will he?” But Trump was right.
Here is what the greatest president in American history said on July 19, 2020, just months before his reelection would be stolen from him:
“If Biden gets in you’re going to end up with a depression the likes of which you’ve never seen. You’ll be lucky if you end up with a country at all.”
Our team of dedicated fact checkers have examined that statement and determined that it is 100% TRUE.
Almost no one alive today can remember the Great Depression of 1929 to 1933. My grandmother is the oldest living person I know currently, and she’s 95. She was three years old when the Great Depression began and seven when it ended. You’d probably have to be at least 100 years old today, at least, to have even vague memories of the struggles during the Great Depression.
The difference between today – and the next great depression that we’re starting to enter – is that back in the early 20th century, American families were much more self-sufficient. They grew a lot more of their own food, knew how to fix any of their machinery that broke down, and knew how to live and survive without cash. As my grandfather, who passed away in 1997, once told me, it wasn’t unusual for a rural family to have as little as $5 in terms of cash assets in those days.
Today, few Americans could grow a radish if you gave them seeds, soil, a pot and some water. Perhaps 1% of our population knows how to do an oil change on their car. Most people in our “information economy” don’t know how to do anything, make anything, grow anything or fix anything. We have rough times coming – and this was done to us on purpose. The depression that F. Joe Biden’s team is causing will likely be far worse than the Great Depression.
Michael Snyder, who runs the excellent Economic Collapse blog, announced this week that more than 50% of Americans earned an income of $34,612 in the last year. That’s based on the census numbers of household incomes. I ran the same numbers and came up with $33,625. For what it’s worth, I trust Mike’s math skills better than my own, but still… those numbers are catastrophic. With more than half the country earning so little money, it means the middle class in America is all but gone following our political leaders’ incredibly stupid response to the fake pandemic.
I’ve been tracking prices of household necessities since last January 20th, when America’s greatest president ever left office to be replaced by a man that has been called “Dementia Joe” and “Creepy Joe”. This past week, we saw the largest week-to-week grocery increase in my 50 years on this earth. Prices may obviously vary based on where you live, but this is the sticker shock that I experienced:
Canned beans: Up 15 cents per can, week to week. Canned spinach: Up 40 cents. Frozen fruits: Up 75 cents per pound. (Fresh fruit in the grocery store that doesn’t taste like a road-killed skunk is suddenly impossible to find; we’ve had better luck with frozen fruits.) Steak went up another $1 per pound, to a mind-boggling $25 per pound. And the cheapest bottle of olive oil jumped $5 higher in a single week.
For my family of six, we’re suddenly spending more on weekly groceries than we are on shelter. And the best and brightest economists in the country are now warning that runaway inflation like this will last through the end of 2022, or even longer. People are pointing to a lot of causes for this, but I think it boils down to one main thing: F. Joe Biden strangled America’s oil and gas production on his very first day in his stolen office.
When it costs more to transport items from point A to point B, it causes the price of everything to go up. Does anyone believe for a second that any of this would be happening if we had the correct, duly elected president in office? After all, Trump predicted that this was going to happen if F. Joe Biden ended up in the White House. The question for many of us now is, will our families survive until 2024?
