    WATCH: Vladimir Putin Compares Joe Biden Against President Trump, "Extraordinary, Talented, Colorful Individual

    Prior to the first meeting between Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia sat down with a hack job reporter with NBC News for an interview, and man was it embarrassing.
    The interview was about what you would expect from a liberal news outlet in America. The interviewer was rude and nasty and showed no respect.
    These jerks are so used to treating President Trump and conservatives like crap that he did the same thing in not showing any regard or respect for the leader of another country.

    The interviewer asked Putin what he thought about President Trump vs. Joe Biden. Here's what he said:
    "Well even now, I believe that former US president Mr. Trump is an extraordinary individual talented individual, otherwise he would not have become US President. He is a colorful individual. You may like him or not. And, but he didn’t come from the U.S. establishment.
    He had not been part of big time politics before, and some like it some don’t like it but that is a fact. President Biden, of course, is radically different from Trump because President Biden is a career man. He has spent virtually his entire adulthood in politics.
    He has been doing it for a great deal of years and I have already said that and that is an obvious fact. Just think of the number of years he spent in the Senate, and how many years he was involved in the matters of international politics and disarmament, virtually at the expert level.
    That’s a different kind of person, and it is my great hope that yes, there are some advantages, some disadvantages, but there will not be any knee-jerk reactions on behalf of the sitting US president that we will be able to comply with certain rules of engagement, certain rules of communications and will be able to find points of contact and common points."

    On the other side of the coin, here is what Joe Biden had to say...or not say about Putin: https://twitter.com/i/status/1404527472910163983

    The guy completely spaced out, lost his train of thought, and to be quite honest, probably was just thinking about Corn Pop.

    ... who gets 181 paid days off?

    ... it would be great if the Republican Senators and Congressmen who gets paid $174,000 per year actually did something other than try to block the President Biden's every move!

    Report: Pope Francis Just Rejected a Major Request from Biden

    The Vatican reportedly rejected a request for President Joe Biden to attend an early morning Mass with Pope Francis.
    A Vatican source told Catholic News Agency there is no meeting scheduled between Pope Francis and Biden.
    The White House reportedly asked if Biden could attend Mass with the pope on Tuesday.

    “The proposal was nixed by the Vatican after considering the impact that Biden receiving Holy Communion from the pope would have on the discussions the [United States Conference of Catholic Bishops] is planning to have during their meeting starting Wednesday, June 16,” CNA reported.
    The U.S. bishops are scheduled to vote this week on creating a committee to draft a document about Eucharistic coherence.

    Adhering to Eucharistic coherence means bishops should be aware public officials cannot receive Holy Communion and “act with deeds or words against the commandments, particularly when abortion, euthanasia, and other grave crimes against life and family are encouraged,” according to CNA.
    The bishops’ vote will decide if Catholic politicians who support abortion should be barred from receiving Communion.

    The bishops discussed during a 2019 USCCB meeting if they should make abortion their top concern, The Washington Post reported.
    “We are at a unique moment with the upcoming election cycle to make a real challenge to Roe v. Wade, given the possible changes to the Supreme Court. We should not dilute our efforts to protect the unborn,” Archbishop Alexander Sample of Portland, Oregon, said, according to the National Catholic Reporter.

    The president has run into trouble over receiving Communion because of his support of abortion.
    In 2019, he was denied Communion by a South Carolina priest who said any leader “who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching,” The Post reported.
    John Kelly was part of the Democratic National Committee team in 2008 that would find Catholic parishes that would welcome Biden during the Obama-McCain presidential race.

    Kelly told The Post that Biden’s team got mad at him when he suggested one of Biden’s priest friends travel with him to avoid any confrontation.
    “They felt, and they were right, that he wants to go to church and should have the right to. He wants to worship with his community,” Kelly said.

    “His understanding of the Eucharist was it shouldn’t be done hidden in private. I very much felt the Eucharist was being weaponized.”
    Pope Francis and Biden previously met in 2015 while Biden was vice president, according to CNA.
    Biden also visited the Vatican on April 29, 2016, and praised Pope Francis, who he said comforted him after the loss of his eldest son Beau a year prior.

    I'm sure SSG will come behind me and say that this is a rightwing conspiracy.





    Inflation Hits Highest Level Since 1979 in Philly Fed Survey


    Super-charged inflationary pressures continued to gain steam in June, the Philadelphia Fed’s manufacturing survey showed Thursday.


    Eighty-two percent of manufacturing companies in the Philly Fed’s survey reported paying higher prices for the inputs of their products, while just one percent said costs of input had fallen. As a result, the diffusion index moved up four points to 80.7, the highest reading since June 1979.




    Many of those companies are succeeding in passing on at least some of those higher costs to customers. Over 51 percent of the firms reported increases in prices received this month (up from 43 percent last month), while only 2 percent reported decreases (the same as last month). The current prices received index rose for the fourth consecutive month, moving up 9 points to 49.7, its highest reading since October 1980.
    Seventy-six percent said they think prices paid for input will continue to go higher, 5.4 percent said they thought they would pay less for inputs six months from now. A very large share of firms, 76.4 percent, said they expect to be able to charge more for their products six months from now, while just 8.5 pecrent foresee declines.
    Sixty-nine percent of manufacturing businesses said labor supply was constraining current output. Eighty percent said supply chain issues were holding them back
    The survey indicates that manufacturing continued to grow in June, although the indexes for new orders, unfilled orders, and inventories fell. This suggests that high inflation is weighing on output.

    Inflation Hits Highest Level Since 1979 in Philly Fed Survey


    Canada’s inflation rate climbs 3.6% in May, largest yearly increase since 2011

    ... the USA is not the only country in the world facing rising inflation rates as the global economy reacts to the COVID pandemic.

    Thanks, but Canada did the same stupid shit as the liberals in the USA. You have anything else that will make me feel better about this runaway inflation?

    No. This global problem will likely last certainly until Sept and likely 2022.

    Logistical and supply chain problems around the world will not likely resolve this year.

    90% of China's electronic's pass through one port in southern China. That port is struggling with COVID-D causing major disruptions. 160,000 40' containers are waiting to be loaded onto ships. Ship turnarounds have increased from 3 days to 15 days. Ocean freight prices are skyrocketing.
