    Global approval of the United States has rebounded under Biden, survey finds


    America is BACK
    I live in America. I dont really care what our global approval is. To me global approval of biden just means they know there is a president in office they can run over and get what they want from us. Even half of our allies dont really like us but they suck up for our money and protection.

    The FACT CHECKING WEBSITES are garbage and shouldn't be trusted. They're owned by liberals and used by liberals to spread lies.




    Collapsed Lafayette Square narrative is yet another 'fact-checked' story gone bad
    Fact-checkers having to walk back 'supposedly all-knowing rulings' damaging media's credibility


    Another left-leaning media narrative with fact-checker cover went belly-up this week, as an Inspector General report found former President Donald Trump did not have Lafayette Square forcefully cleared of protesters so he could pose in front of a church last year.


    "Fact-checked" mainstream media stories unhelpful to Republicans or conservatives – like ones related to Russia or vaccine development or police shootings or the origins of the Coronavirus – have later fallen apart or been amended, updated, corrected, or retracted over the past few years. And observers are taking note it doesn't seem to go the other way.


    "I have been through a lot of fact checks, and I cannot recall a check favoring the right half of politics that's been reversed," the conservative Media Research Center's Tim Graham told Fox News. "This pattern of fact checkers having to walk back their supposedly all-knowing rulings underlines how eager they are to solidify Democrat narratives and undermine conservative journalism."


    GLENN GREENWALD TEARS INTO CNN, JIM ACOSTA FOR QUESTIONING IG CREDIBILITY: PEDDLING ‘OUTRIGHT FABRICATIONS'


    The latest example involves one of the more controversial episodes of Trump's presidency. When the former president walked from the White House through Lafayette Square to visit a riot-torched St. John's Church, protestors had already been cleared from the area. Many journalists concluded Trump had been the one to order the protestors out.


    But an investigation released this week by Interior Department IG Mark Lee Greenblatt says U.S. Park Police and the U.S. Secret Service deemed it necessary to remove protestors from the park on June 1, 2020, in order to install anti-scale fencing. The decision was reached after at least 49 U.S. Park Police (USPP) were injured while policing protests days earlier.


    At the time, there were numerous examples of media figures pushing the story that Trump demanded protesters to be cleared. CNN correspondent Jim Acosta asserted at a briefing that the White House had "gassed and pummeled protesters" so Trump could have a photo-op. MSNBC anchor Joy Reid said it happened so Trump could have his picture taken with a Bible. And CNN's Anderson Cooper said it "obviously" happened for Trump's photo-op.


    The New York Times reported, "Protesters Dispersed With Tear Gas So Trump Could Pose At Church." ABC News, MSNBC, NPR, the Washington Post, and other outlets also reported the story at the time. The Post produced a 12-minute video about how police "cleared the way for the president to cross Lafayette Square."

    Biden administration will return $2 billion to military projects that had been set aside for border wall construction


    The Biden administration is returning more than $2 billion to military projects that had previously been set aside for the construction of former President Donald Trump's border wall, the White House Office of Management and Budget said Friday.

    In one of his first actions in office, President Joe Biden ordered a pause on wall construction and called for a review of projects and funds. Friday's announcement builds on the Biden administration's decision to cancel all contracts for wall construction on the US-Mexico border that used funds originally intended for military missions and functions.

    The administration is now taking steps to send back billions' worth of funds to the Pentagon, so that they can be used for their initial purpose. That includes returning military construction funds to 66 previously deferred projects in 11 states, 3 territories, and 16 countries.

    The move, according to the OMB, will restore funds for on-base schools, hangars, housing, and facilities, including more than $10 million for the missile field expansion at Fort Greely in Alaska and $79 million for an elementary school for US military children in Germany.

    The US Army Corps of Engineers is in the process of canceling 20 contracts for construction of the southern border wall, their commanding general testified to Congress this week.

    The Department of Homeland Security, meanwhile, is using appropriated funds to address environmental issues stemming from the Trump administration's wall construction, as well as for construction clean up. The department is also reviewing the status of land seizure cases for wall construction, as well as land acquired in previous years, to assess whether those properties are still necessary. "If DHS determines it no longer requires the use of such land, it will work to return the land to its prior owners," according to OMB.

    Biden's fiscal year 2022 budget included over $1 billion for border infrastructure, like technology, but no additional funding for border wall construction.

    We have a urgent crisis at our southern border and liberals have lied to our face about the reality of it and they're against the wall because Trump was for it. Democrats are destructive and soon we all will feel the results.

    Despite what our Canadian friends would lead you to believe, the USA is heading for a world of hurt. They'll find some way to blame Trump or anyone other than themselves and the media will cover for them but make no mistake....INFLATION will devastate the working class.





    Failed Bidenomics Threatens to Return Us to Jimmy Carter’s 1970s

    Writing in the New York Post, Charles Gasparino warns, “The Biden administration keeps insisting inflation is ‘transient,’ but there are now real signs that inflation is here and possibly for the long haul.”


    “Thursday’s consumer price index increase of 5 percent year-on-year — its highest level in 13 years — is the latest and most visible piece of evidence that this scourge is making a comeback,” he adds.


    The most important point he makes is this: “Inflation is a regressive tax that hits hardest at working-class and poor Americans.”


    Inflation brutalizes the working class and poor, as do spiking energy prices, which are included in inflation measures, but also cause much of it. It’s not only the cost of electricity and topping your gas tank; it’s the cost of manufacturing and, most especially, transporting all the goods and services we purchase.


    So it’s vital to focus on energy costs, not only for the reasons above, but also because His Fraudulency Joe Biden is waging war on oil, specifically America’s status as an energy-independent exporter.


    The reasons for this crippling inflation are not difficult to discern. Because the federal government is paying millions of Americans not to work (even though the country’s reopening), an artificial labor shortage is artificially inflating wages, which increases the cost of everything else. On top of that, the federal government is pouring trillions and trillions of dollars into the economy, which is now totally unnecessary, as Gasparino points out. With the country finally reopening, the economy will grow just fine on its own without all this cheap money, which creates inflation.


    Now, at this point, you might be thinking, Yeah, but wages are increasing. How is that a bad thing?


    Well, what good are higher wages if inflation eats it all up. Earnings are actually down in this country and have been for five months.


    What’s so fascinating about all of this is that as Biden barrels America’s economic train towards its inevitable wreck, none of the above is debatable. It not like we have experts who will argue massive government spending, artificially high wages, and zero percent interest rates won’t produce inflation. Of course, they will. And yet, out of one side of his racist mouth, Biden insists this inflation we’ve not seen since the 2008 crash (which was also caused by the government meddling in the economy by way of Fannie and Freddie) is “transient,” while out of the other side of his racist mouth, he continues to call for a trillion — with a “T” — government spending plans.


    Inflation is sure not going to be “transient” if you keep the tidal waves of cheap money rolling in.


    Inflation might actually be “transient” if the administration ceases the policies causing it, but it won’t. Even with our massive labor shortage, the boosted federal unemployment benefits will march on into September. This makes zero sense.


    As someone who grew up in the 1970s, who turned 14 a few months after the decade ended, there were many fabulous things about that decade. Americans had finally had enough of the pompous, self-important 1960s and had themselves a blast. Of course, the civil rights movement (which I, of course, excluded from the category of “pompous, self-important”) brought a country closer together that was, at long last, ready just to have a good time. Goodbye Joan Baez, hello Led Zeppelin. Goodbye protest songs, hello rock n’ roll, and disco. Goodbye Woodstock, hello Studio 54.


    It was one of the freest decades in American history, maybe the freest. I’d gladly pay six bucks for a gallon of gas and four bucks for a loaf of bread if it brought back All in the Family, Blazing Saddles, Saturday Night Fever, Blondie, Warhol, a proudly sexist James Bond, R-rated T&A, John Belushi, roller derby, George Carlin, and the great American ability to collectively laugh at ourselves and, most especially, our sacred cows. But that’s me… The cost of inflation on struggling Americans, those who live on the margins, is brutal and oftentimes crippling. It’s just not worth it, and it doesn’t have to happen — unless His Fraudulency wants it to.

    congress appropriated that money for the wall... THEY must hold another vote to undo it and reassign those monies.

    So, Canadians are responsible for inflation? That's a new one. Can you provide proof of this?

    Of course you're not responsible. Didn't say you were. But your Canadian friend will be responsible when his denials prove to be totally false.
