Last week John gave a history as to how we arrived at our current state in the economy and with the dollar. Today, John continues that historical account, reviewing what President Trump did to repair our economy and how President Biden has undone all of that, causing us to be dependent on autocracies for oil and giving Russia economic advantages that the world would rather it not have. John points out the world runs on oil, but there are forces – namely the climate alarmists – that have always advocated for getting us off of oil by taxing it, thereby eroding our economy, hurting the poor and middle class, and lining their own pockets. They've slowly enacted their plan over the years, leading us to where we are today.
Given the policies that the current administration has put in place, it's not a shock that inflation is picking up. But some in government and the media are telling us it's not a problem. First up this week is Bruce Yandle (mercatus.org), Distinguished Adjunct Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. He draws on his previous experience at the top of the Federal Trade Commission to predict when our economic tipping point will be if we don't fix things now. He also shows us what a Bruce Yandle-led Federal Reserve would do to solve the problem.
The Democrat Party is the party in charge right now, causing this inflation. But prior to our last election, several political forecasters were betting the party would soon come to an end. Is that prediction still valid after the election? Bob Adelmann (thenewamerican.com), retired entrepreneur and conservative columnist, is here to answer that. He describes why the party would disappear in a few years and gives an early prediction as to how the 2022 midterm elections will turn out for both houses of Congress.
Finally this week, we take a look at why the catchphrase ‘Build Back Better' is an empty slogan that's actually accomplishing nothing. Joining us is Seton Motley (lessgovernment.org), Founder and President of the group Less Government. He looks at how everything fits together from our supply chain issues to China's rise after the fall of the Soviet Union to Chinese influence in our college education system. He finishes up weighing in on the future of pandemic-related issues in this country.
The catchphrase of the year so far is 'Build Back Better,' a slogan our current administration keeps insisting we're following. To most people, though, nothing is better. Back with us today after a long hiatus is Seton Motley (lessgovernment.org), Founder and President of the group Less Government. Why is the plan seemingly to destroy the country and our economy rather than build back better? He looks at how everything fits together from our supply chain issues to China's rise after the fall of the Soviet Union to Chinese influence in our college education system. He even weighs in on the pandemic and where we're headed in this country.
