The United States this week will impose further costs on Iranian officials responsible for violence against demonstrators who protested against Iran’s government after the death of Mahsa Amini, President Joe Biden said on Monday.
Amini, a 22-year-old from Iranian Kurdistan, was arrested on Sept. 13 in Tehran for “unsuitable attire” by the morality police. She died three days later in hospital after falling into a coma.
(Natural News) The Obama sycophants running Dementia Joe Biden’s regime, as well as fellow Democrats in Congress, are continuing to destroy the magnificent economy Donald Trump and Republicans built through a series of America First policies and tax cuts.
On Tuesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average tanked more than 1,200 points following yet another disastrous inflation report — inflation, by the way, that Biden and Democrats say isn’t happening.
“The Dow Jones Industrial Average slid 1,244 points, or 3.8%. The S&P 500 dropped about 4.2%, and the Nasdaq Composite sank 5%. It was the worst day of the year for all three averages. More than 490 stocks in the S&P 500 fell, with Facebook-parent Meta dropping 8% and Caesars Entertainment losing 7.3%,” CNBC reported around the time the markets closed for the day. “The drop erased nearly all of the recent rally for stocks, pulling the S&P 500 back toward its Sept. 6 close of 3,908 and causing some traders to glance back at mid-June, when the index fell below 3,700.”
UBS director of floor operations Art Cashin said of the day’s activities during an appearance on CNBC‘s “Squawk on the Street” in the afternoon: “I think we may even go back and retest the June lows. Certainly the 3900 is just so tempting, and you’re pulling back below the 50-day moving average here. It’s very much about the technicals. It’s not so much that the one number made the economy go topsy-turvy. It meant a lot of guys who were making preliminary favorable bets got caught off base.”
As the prospect of possibly imminent hostilities with the Chinese Communist Party grows by the day, the imperative of having a formidable, ready, motivated and well-led U.S. military force has arguably never been greater in our nation’s history.
Yet, President Biden is effecting a devastating “fundamental transformation” of the United States’ armed forces – to the benefit of the Chinese Communist Party and our other enemies.
In the Committee on the Present Danger: China’s “USA Betrayed” series, we are next examining what the CCP’s “Old Friends” here are doing to advance its agenda. This is the practical effect of weakening of the U.S. military being manifested through: Marxist Critical Race Theory indoctrination in lieu of required training for war; ideologically driven purges; unjustifiable vaccine mandates and forced separations from the armed services; program-impacting budget cuts exacerbated by the ravages of inflation; officially sanctioned drag queen spectacles and other assaults on the military’s culture, virtues and Uniformed Code of Justice; and the resulting inability to retain and recruit proficient warriors.
President Joe Biden faced backlash Tuesday afternoon for celebrating the passage of his so-called “Inflation Reduction Act,” which experts say will have little to no impact on reducing inflation, while the latest Consumer Price Index (CPI) showed today that inflation rose in August compared to last year and while the stock market tanked.
Biden claimed that the bill was the “single most important legislation passed in the Congress to combat inflation and one of the most significant laws in our nation’s history.”
“We’re going to fight for environmental justice and create clean energy jobs and apprentices and front-line fence communities that have been smothered by the legacy of pollution,” Biden added.
The Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose 8.3% between August 2021 and August 2022, according to a Tuesday report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Month-over-month prices for food, shelter, and medical services continued to tick upward, producing a 0.1% overall price increase from July. Economists had expected headline inflation to fall 0.1%. Prices for food at home — a category that includes grocery store or supermarket food purchases — increased 0.7% from the previous month. Meanwhile, prices for natural gas and electricity rose 3.5% and 1.5%, respectively.
“Today’s CPI report confirms that the US has a serious inflation problem,” economist Larry Summers, a Democrat, tweeted. “Median inflation used to be a favorite indicator for team transitory. This month it was at its highest ever reading.”
Nearly two-thirds of Americans, including a surprisingly large majority of Democrats, believe the Biden administration’s attacks on so-called “MAGA Republicans” are dividing the country.
According to a survey of 1,277 U.S. adults, conducted by I&I/TIPP between September 7-9, nearly two-thirds of Americans, 62% agreed that the White House’s attacks on so-called “MAGA Republicans” increase division in the country, while just 29% disagreed. Majorities of Americans also agreed that Biden’s attacks on “MAGA Republicans” endangers Americans’ First Amendment Rights, and was a politically biased use of the office.
The Joe Biden administration requested another massive infusion of cash for its war against Russia. The latest short-term spending proposal seeks nearly $14 billion for weapons and economic assistance for Ukraine. Since Russia invaded Ukraine six months ago, the US has sent Kiev tens of billions in weapons and direct economic assistance.
On Friday, the White House asked Congress to approve $13.7 billion in funds to confront Russia in Ukraine as part of a short-term spending package. The Biden administration’s total request is $47.1 billion for a wide array of issues, including Covid, Monkeypox, disaster relief, and the war in Ukraine.
The White House largely supported Kiev’s war effort by transferring arms owned by the Department of Defense to Ukraine’s military. Within the $14 billion for Ukraine, over half will go to buy weapons. $4.5 billion will go towards the Department of Defense replenishing American stockpiles.
Biden’s Covid Czar Dr. Ashish Jha on Friday said he doesn’t want life in the US to go back to normal.
Dr. Jha wants to build a ‘new normal’ that has “equity” at the heart of it.
The Biden Regime just says the quiet part out loud now.
“I’ve heard Secretary Cardona say this over and over again. You know, people do talk about going back to normal… and I’ve heard the secretary say, ‘well, you know, normal wasn’t working out so well every-for some people,” Jha said.
“So the goal in my mind is not to go back to normal, the goal is to build a very different new normal that has equity much more at the heart of it,” Dr. Jha said.
You gotta crack a few eggs…
Joe Biden’s covid response coordinator Ashish Jha:
“The goal in my mind is not to go back to normal, the goal is to build a very different new normal that has equity much more at the heart of it."
