When Boris Yeltsin visited America in 1989, he was amazed by what he saw on the shelves in a grocery store. Frozen pudding pops. Cans of soup. Loaves of bread. Steaks and chops and seafood. He thought it was staged at first. He had never seen such well stocked and abundance at stores in the USSR.
Later in that trip, the populist Soviet Yeltsin wept for the Russian people because the store shelves were bare. They were always bare. Yeltsin thought there would be a revolution if the Russian people ever realized how much food we had in America, compared to their empty shelves. And then along comes Joe Biden in 2022.
The corrupt regime in charge of the country right now does not care about the American people at all. Their only two goals are looting the Treasury while there’s still something to loot and securing more power for themselves. They literally could care less that they have caused a baby formula shortage in America, and now babies are going hungry as a result.

This problem had been bubbling beneath the surface for a while before the media caught onto it. Moms were having trouble finding formula on store shelves. Last week, the problem went supernova.
In five US states, there was no baby formula to be found in more than half of all stores. In another 25 states, 40 to 50% of all stores were completely out of formula. One House Republican noted that she had been sent photographs of pallets of baby formula at the southern border, where Joe Biden has been shipping formula to illegal aliens. Another Republican held a press conference to announce a truthful and damning statement: It’s now easier to get a crack pipe in America with Joe Biden in charge, than it is to get baby formula.
We’re now officially the laughingstock of the whole world. Congress has managed to send $54 billion to Ukraine in recent weeks, but we can’t feed our own babies here in America.
The problem got so bad last week, and the public outcry got so loud, that the Biden regime actually acknowledged the problem. In an announcement that Boris Yeltsin would have found very familiar, Joe Biden’s White House flack said American mothers were to blame for the shortage. Moms were hoarding baby formula. That was the official position of the White House as mothers who need specific medical formulas for their babies that have allergies, could not find those formulas ANYWHERE.
They must have realized that they stepped in it at that point, because the Biden regime sprang into action over the weekend. The Department of Health and Human Services cobbled together a website to help moms locate baby formula. Stop us if this sounds familiar from the last time the federal government tried to put together a big website for Obamacare.
CNN tried to test the new website out to see how successful they’d be in tracking some baby formula down. They failed. The website is a big puddle of failure. Strike two! And even if the website had worked, what then?
“Congratulations, mommy, there’s a can of baby formula 700 miles away from you. Good luck getting there before someone else snatches it off the shelf!”
With back-to-back failures to actually address the problem, the Biden regime trotted out the FDA chief on Monday to make another announcement: There is no baby formula shortage! Well, hallelujah! That’ll be great news for all the moms that still can’t find baby formula. Dr. Robert Califf, Joe Biden’s FDA Director, actually said this out loud on CNN:
“There is formula out there, but we have a distribution problem and we’re going to need to examine that.”
See? Plenty of formula, comrades! And in the unfortunate event that you are unable to find baby formula for your child, just understand that it’s all somebody else’s fault.
Two years after Boris Yeltsin wept at the sight of an American grocery store, the flag flying over the Kremlin was taken down and Yeltsin took charge of the whole joint. The Soviet Union ceased to exist. Populist leaders have a tendency to tip the whole apple cart over when there are food shortages. Good thing we don’t have any populist leaders out there in America, right?
