The Biden administration cannot explain their policy on how they are going to stop inflation. The people are seeing the truth, the plan is collapse the economy not help it. Fuel prices are moving up again. [JB] is helping subsidize foreign workers while Americans don’t have jobs. Bitcoin expands. Durham is on the hunt and he is slowly squeezing the truth out of the [DS]. The people are seeing this and soon the first conviction will occur which will send a signal to the rest of the [DS]. The patriots are winning the information war. Nazi surrender in Ukraine, Russia is in control. When does a bird sing, as pressure builds those who are in the cross hairs will most likely try to make a deal. When does the your enemy expend ammunition, when they are winning or when they are weak and losing.
- Karine Jean-Pierre held her first briefing as America’s new press secretary on Monday and melted down into a word blob over two fairly straightforward questions.
- Last week, His Fraudulency Joe Biden fired off a ridiculous tweet that claimed (falsely) that raising corporate taxes reduces inflation. It was such a laughable non-sequitur, such a blatant piece of disinformation, that former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos pointed and laughed at it.
- Jean-Pierre’s response was so painful to watch, you might want to break it into a few parts…
JEAN-PIERRE: Look, you know, we have talked about, uhm, we have talked this about this past year. Ah, about, uhm, making sure that the wealthiest among us are paying their fair share. Uhm, and that is important to do and, ah, that is something that, ah, you know, the president has been, you know, working on every day — when we talk about inflation and lowering costs. And so, it’s very important, ah, that, ah, you know, as we’re seeing costs rise, ah, and we’re talking about how to, you know, ah, you know, build an America that’s safe that’s equal for everyone and doesn’t leave anyone behind; that is an important part of that, as well.
DOOCY: But how does raising taxes on corporations lower the cost of gas, the cost of a used car, the cost of food for everyday Americans?
JEAN-PIERRE: Well, look, I think [reads briefing book] we encourage those who have done very well, especially those who care about climate change [which is a hoax] to support a fairer tax code that doesn’t change — that doesn’t charge manufacturers, workers, cops, builders a higher percentage of their earnings, that the most fortunate people in our nation, and not let that stand in the way of reducing energy costs and fighting this existential problem. If you think about that as an example. And to support basic collective bargaining rights, as well, right? That’s also important. But look, it is — by not — without having a fairer tax code, which is what I’m talking about, then, all, everything, manufacturing workers, cops, you know, it’s not fair for them to have to pay higher taxes then the folks who are, who are not paying taxes at all.
DOOCY: But what does that have to do with inflation? The president said ‘you want to bring down inflation, let’s make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share.’ Jeff Bezos came out and tweeted that the President’s newly created Disinformation Board should review this tweet. Would you be okay with that?

Democrats just blocked my bill to lower gas prices by unleashing U.S. energy independence for a SIXTH time.
Why are they insistent on forcing Americans to choose between groceries and filling their gas tanks?

- President Joe Biden is subsidizing businesses with 35,000 more foreign H-2B visa workers to hire for non-agricultural jobs in the United States, even as nearly 12 million Americans remain jobless.
- Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced that the administration would begin allowing businesses to hire up to 35,000 additional foreign H-2B visa workers for nonagricultural jobs in construction, hospitality, and landscaping.
- “This preemptive move by Mayorkas lets seasonal employers off the hook from recruiting Americans by offering better wages and working conditions,” Robert Law with the Center for Immigration Studies wrote. “Instead, the federal government will subsidize bad business models or simply further enrich employers by giving them access to more cheap foreign workers than otherwise would be allowed.”
- After destroying the baby formula market, Biden’s FDA Head says the firm that he shut down for three months can now open.
- Abbot Laboratories said it reached a deal with the FDA to reopen its Michigan plant – but it could take two months before product hits the shelves.
- In 25 states, 40-50% of baby formula is out of stock.
- In 5 states over 50% of baby formula is out of stock.
- In the meantime, the Biden Regime is happily supplying baby formula to illegal aliens and telling Americans to ‘call their doctors’ if they can’t find baby formula.
- The country is probably in a recession that could last up to 18 months, he said
- Russia’s war on Ukraine is leading to an “apocalyptic” food shortage, Governor of the Bank of England Andrew Bailey told a committee of Parliament on Monday. Bailey said the main issue is that major global grain supplier Ukraine’s crops cannot be exported due to the war. The head of the United Nations World Food Program warned “millions of people around the world will die” if Ukraine’s Black Sea ports continue to be blockaded by Russia. Last week, Italian League party leader Matteo Salvini warned the looming food shortages due to the war could cause as many as 20 million people from Africa to migrate to Europe.
The Evening Standard reported on the “apocalyptic” warnings by the Bank of England and the U.N. (exceprt):
The Bank of England governor sounded an “apocalyptic” warning on Monday over looming food shortages caused by Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

- A Democratic consulting firm linked to Hunter Biden registered with the Department of Justice as a foreign agent of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings.
- The founders of Blue Star Strategies said in filings under the Foreign Agents Registration Act that they arranged two meetings in 2016 between State Department officials and an attorney of Burisma owner Nikolai Zlochevsky. The founders of the firm, Sally Painter and Karen Tramontano, sought to assess the government’s position towards Zlochevsky, who was under an international bribery investigation. They began working for Burisma in late 2015 after an introduction from Hunter Biden. Biden’s work for the scandal-plagued Burisma drew scrutiny at the time because his father served as the United States’ government’s chief liaison to Ukraine.
- The filing could mark a significant development in a federal investigation into Biden and his ‘ foreign business dealings. Federal prosecutors are reportedly probing Hunter Biden’s work in Ukraine and China. Prosecutors have also reportedly investigated whether Painter and Tramontano, who served in the Clinton administration, violated foreign agent laws by failing to disclose their work for Burisma.

First big news that I have seen.
We knew Joffe was an FBI source. FBI's cyber chief did not know that until recently.
The big news is that Joffe was "closed for cause" by the FBI, likely for some form of misconduct.
Wonder if we can learn the date Joffe was shutdown by FBI? pic.twitter.com/HSGoHaPyF8

If Durham lands a conviction then big names and institutions will start to fall.
But given the current coverage blackout the general population will have little idea as to why.
When the moment comes, they’ll be banking on that widespread lack of knowledge to create chaos and escape justice.
Just revealed in the Sussmann trial that the judge is married to the lawyer of one of the two “lovers,” Lisa Page, and Attorney General Merrick Garland presided over their wedding. Rigged!
- Project Veritas revealed another undercover video that shows Senior Engineer Siru Murugesan revealing the ‘commie as f**k’ censorship and suppression campaign that is to blame for silencing conservatives and rigging elections. Watch:
- President Biden is rushing off to Buffalo,
- there was another mass shooting in America on Sunday. It happened at a church in Laguna Woods in Orange County, California. It claimed the life of one person and wounded five others.
- “The suspect in the Laguna Woods church shooting has been identified as David Chou, 68 years old, of Las Vegas, NV,” the sheriff’s department added. “He has been booked on one felony count of murder and five felony counts of attempted murder. More info to follow at todays press conference.”The U.S. media have written vague headlines about the church shooting while noting that the incident was a “hate crime,” but that does not do the atrocity justice.
- The victims were Taiwanese and the incident sadly occurred during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage month. It thus seems like the news media would be intensely driven to publicize the story.
- Except there is a problem with the narrative: The suspect isn’t a ‘white supremacist.’ Nor is he one of the many African-American assailants who have been charged and convicted for attacking Asian-Americans.
- The suspect is a Chinese-born man named David Wenwei Chou, a 68-year-old resident of Las Vegas. His motivation for the mass shooting was described in a hand-written note in Chinese left on a car dashboard, as was reported by the L.A. Times.
- “David Wenwei Chou, 68, of Las Vegas, left notes in Chinese in his car stating he did not believe Taiwan should be independent from China, said Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes,” the Times reported.

- The US Senate passed legislation to send another $40 billion to Ukraine on Monday night.
- Eleven Republican Senators broke with Mitch McConnell and voted “no” against the latest funding of Europe’s most corrupt regime.
- Here are the 11 Republican senators who voted against the latest aid to Ukraine.
The Daily Mail reported:
- At least seven buses carrying surrendered Ukrainian fighters left the Azovstal steel works escorted by pro-Russian armed forces on Tuesday, a Reuters witness said.
- Some of the Ukrainian fighters being transported did not appear to be wounded, the witness said.
- The New York Times is coming under heavy criticism for announcing the end of the lengthy Russian siege of the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol with the below tweet and headline saying Ukraine ended its “combat mission” in Mariupol on Monday. Objectively… they were “evacuated” to Russian-controlled territory, in a Russian-controlled hospital, by Russian forces.
- The “paper of record” managed to completely avoid the reality that some 300 Azov militants surrendered – instead opting to suggest that somehow Ukraine’s forces decided to wind down their “combat mission”. The headline also emphasized they were “being evacuated”.
- Soaring bread prices have triggered protests in Iran in which some shops were set on fire, prompting police to arrest scores of “provocateurs”, the official IRNA news agency said on Friday.
- The protests were triggered by a cut in government subsidies for imported wheat that caused price hikes as high as 300 percent for a variety of flour-based staples.
- Iran’s official inflation rate is around 40%, and some estimate it is over 50%. Almost half Iran’s 82 million population are now below the poverty line.
- The government plans to offer digital coupons in the next couple of months for limited amounts of bread at subsidised prices. The rest will be offered at market rates. Other food items will be added later.
- Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday visited the headquarters of Iran’s largest and most prominent opposition group to show his support for the Iranian people in their growing public opposition to the Islamist regime.
Travelled to Albania today to speak with the Iranian community there. They are right to resist the mullahs and work to deliver what the Iranian people are demanding and protesting for: freeing Iran’s citizens from the regime's tyrannical yoke. #FreeIran2022

- In yet another blow to the Biden administration, the Supreme Court has ruled that a Federal Election Commission (FEC) campaign finance policy favored by Democrats violates the law.
- The 6-3 Supreme Court vote was a win for Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who challenged the practice of “regulating the repayment of loans by a candidate to his own campaign,”
- The ruling marks at least the eighth time in as many months that the highest Courts in the land have ruled that Biden’s policies, “guidelines,” or “mandates” are unconstitutional.
- The Biden administration argues that disallowing the FEC rule will “open the door to bribery in elections.” However, the Supreme Court found the FEC policy conflicted with First Amendment speech protections.
