Joe Biden’s America: People Turning Off Their Heat as Prices Skyrocket, ‘Like Living in an Igloo’

Joe Biden’s America.

People in the Northeast are turning off their heat because they cannot afford the skyrocketing energy prices.

One resident is trying to stretch her oil ration by keeping the heat down in her home.

“It’s miserable,” the woman told CNN. “It’s like living in an igloo.”

Other residents in the Northeast say they have to choose between food and heating their homes.

One elder, retired Philly resident said he will keep his house at 50 to 55 and won’t turn the heat on until his “teeth chatter” in an effort to ration his oil because filling his tank costs $1,500.

Don’t Feel Alone – 7 Out of 10 Americans Are Unhappy with the State of the Union – We Are the Tide

(Above map from CNN at 9 am Wednesday morning on the day after the 2022 Election.  At this time, CNN shows House at 199 GOP and 178 Dem seats awarded.) 

As the morning sun rises across the nation, Americans are waking up to the storyline that the Democrats did much better than expected last night.   

This is shocking and disheartening to many Americans.

Don’t feel alone.  Most Americans agree that the country is going in the wrong direction. CNN reported that yesterday in the results of their exit polling.  (And this is from far-left CNN.) 

Looking at the US House map this morning you can see that the country is a sea of red.  Americans won big in many races.

We also know that there were results that never could have occurred in free and fair elections.  In Michigan, the corrupt Governor, SOS, and AG all won.  They were seriously disliked for their actions in the 2020 Election and with COVID.  It’s difficult to believe they won without massive cheating going on.

The DARK WINTER has only just begun: Prepare for YEARS of economic collapse, rigged elections, censorship and government tyranny

(Natural News) In the aftermath of yesterday’s mid-term elections, the only good news is that we have essentially paused some elements of the Democrats’ agenda of total destruction by taking control of the House (as is currently projected but not yet called). This alone will pause the Democrats’ legislative and executive monopoly over America, and it gives the American people a bit of breathing room to try to adjust to the disturbing reality of what’s coming next.

That’s where the bad news kicks in, because what’s coming next for America (under Democrat rule) is going to be a multi-year “Dark Winter” of economic collapse, food inflation, censorship, tyranny, global war and more rigged elections.

Essentially, after last night’s mid-term election fiasco, the doom and gloomers have been proven right, while those claiming the “white hats” would come to rescue everybody are left floating in the wind.

BIDEN ECONOMY: With Inflation at 40-Year Highs, 4.5 Million Americans Turn to Second Job

The number one issue in today’s midterms may be the economy.  This is not because it is good, it’s because the Biden economy is terrible. 

Last week the jobs report came out with bizarre numbers.  The report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) showed an increase in jobs.  But these numbers looked tainted as the measurements overall made no sense. 

A further review of these numbers today shows that more and more Americans are turning to second jobs to get by in the Biden economy.

Pound sinks as UK economic uncertainty rises

By Noor Nanji
Business reporter, BBC News

The pound fell against the dollar on Friday as new figures showed a gloomy picture for the UK economy.

Sterling slipped to $1.11, after rallying on Thursday as Prime Minister Liz Truss resigned.

However, it clawed back losses on Friday evening and was back up to around $1.12 against the dollar.

The volatility in the pound came after official figures showed government borrowing rose to its second highest September on record.

Meanwhile, people are shopping less than they did before the coronavirus pandemic, according to figures from the Office For National Statistics (ONS).

Retail sales fell by more than expected last month, dropping 1.4% and continuing their slide from August, the official figures showed.

Hobby Lobby Owner Cites Christian Faith in Decision to Give Company Away: God Is the ‘True Owner’

The billionaire owner of Hobby Lobby says he is giving away his ownership of the company and cites his Christian faith for the decision.

“I chose God,” wrote David Green, 80, in an op-ed for Fox News on Friday.

Green founded the arts and crafts retail chain in Oklahoma in 1970 on a $600 loan, according to Forbes. Since then, Hobby Lobby has blossomed into a multibillionaire company with 970 stores across the country. Green is currently worth an estimated $13.7 billion.

However, as Green amassed a great amount of wealth, he became fixated on the question if he was an owner of the company and his wealth or a steward — which he defines as: “a manager of what you’ve been entrusted with.”

Energy cost inflation a major challenge for more than half of Germany’s economy

What was once the economic powerhouse of Europe is rapidly unraveling as business leaders, associations and consumers are finally coming to the realization that Germany is in serious trouble.

In the coming months, energy supplies will dwindle to the point that rationing will more than likely ensue. The resulting energy shortages will further skew prices above and beyond current inflationary levels, eventually leading to a collapse.

The Federation of German Industries (BDI) conducted an analysis recently which found that energy cost inflation is a major challenge for 58 percent of German companies, while 34 percent say what happens next will determine their survival.

If prices continue to soar, that 34 percent will be out of business in no time. The domino effect of that loss will probably also yank an even higher percentage down with it.

Some companies are in talks about moving production overseas in order to survive. If that happens on a large enough scale, then Germany will ultimately lose a big chunk of its manufacturing base.

One in 10 German companies has already reduced or even halted all production due to the energy crisis. One in four German companies is now in the process of relocating company shares or parts of production and jobs abroad to countries where energy is more affordable.

Idiocracy: Germany finally admits that “without energy, no economy can run”

Peter Adrian, head of the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK), is reportedly coming to grips with the fact that Germany will collapse without Russian energy.

It was all fun and games poking the Russian bear for political points. But now that the Nord Stream 1 (NS1) pipeline has been turned off and hyperinflation looms, the only thing Germany has to look forward to is racing straight to the bottom.

“More and more companies are telling us that they no longer have a supply contract for electricity or gas at all,” Adrian told RND newsroom. “The tap is turned off in the truest sense of the word. But without energy, no economy can run.”

One such company is Hakle, a toilet paper company that recently filed for bankruptcy citing unsustainable energy and material costs. The steel and non-ferrous metals industries are also on the verge of a collapse, requiring cheap and abundant natural gas in order to maintain production.

“Other sectors, such as chemical production, agriculture, and automating are all facing unprecedented hurdles as the energy crisis continues to grip Europe,” reports REMIX.
