DAILY BIBLE VERSE

Why, my soul, are you downcast?

Why so disturbed within me?

Put your hope in God,

for I will yet praise him,

my Savior and my God.

Psalm 42:11

Joe Biden's Economy


While Democrats in Congress focus like a laser beam on the only known GOP riot in history, the Labor Department just announced that inflation in May hit 8.6% from one year before. Economists had predicted 8.3%. Prices rose a full 1% in May alone. That’s the fastest rate of inflation in 41 years, since December of 1981.

There has been a strong rise in hourly wages, but it’s more than offset by rising prices. On an annual basis, real wages dropped 3% in May due to inflation eating up earnings.

Here’s where some of it is going: Redfin reports that for the first time in history, the median monthly rent in the US has surpassed $2,000. That’s 15% higher than one year ago.

In a related story, a new Quinnipiac University poll found that Americans ranked inflation as their most urgent issue, outranking gun violence by 2-1 (surprisingly, nobody named blaming Trump for the January 6th riot as the most urgent issue.) While a large majority support raising the legal age to buy a gun to 21, only half support a ban on so-called “assault weapons,” which is the lowest number since 2013. And Biden’s approval rating sank to 33% among Americans and 35% among registered voters, tying the lowest rating he’s ever received in this poll.

I’ll tie this all up with my favorite meme so far to be inspired by the January 6 Committee Show: “When someone suggests that I ‘Remember January 6,” I remember that gas was $2.19 a gallon.”


Speaking of gas prices


Thursday, the company behind the popular gas price tracking app Gasbuddy announced that for the first time ever, the average price of gas in America topped $5.00 a gallon. For drivers in some states, that must sound like a bargain. The most expensive is (surprise!) California, where as of this morning, the average price of a gallon of regular is $6.42, and the most expensive in the state is $7.799.

But never fear, President Biden has a plan: force everyone to buy electric cars when we’re already facing electricity shortages that have experts warning of widespread blackouts this summer. Okay, it’s not a good plan, but at least it’s better than what Congress is working on: trying to blame a three-hour riot that happened 17 months ago on a President who’s been out of office for 16 months. At least Biden will save Californians a little gas: thanks to his trip to the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles, the southbound lane of the Pacific Coast Highway was shut down. You’re welcome, Californians!


No video


The D.A. of Napa County, California, announced that no video of the arrest of Nancy Pelosi’s wealthy husband Paul Pelosi for DUI will be released at this time because it’s an “ongoing investigation.” No decision has yet been made on whether he’ll face criminal charges, although I suspect the odds are a lot lower than if he were a working class Republican.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/paul-pelosi-dui-arrest-body-cam-footage-refuse-release

By the way, the major reason I’m running this story is because a fake story swept the Internet that the charges had been dropped. A lot of people understandably found that easy to believe, but it wasn’t true. Not yet, at least.


Biden to reverse another Trump policy


The Biden Administration has found another Trump policy to reverse, this time in Israel. And for them, it serves double duty by not only reversing Trump, but also signaling weakness and rewarding Palestinian leaders for a wave of deadly terrorism.

Interesting suggestion from Mike Pompeo


Here’s an interesting suggestion from former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for preventing school shootings that might actually make a difference: giving jobs to US military veterans as school mentors, character coaches and after school instructors.

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/veterans-schools-shootings-safety-uvalde-texas

Pompeo says these vets can not only help model standards of behavior that are sorely lacking in schools these days – “leadership, compassion, courage, love of freedom, and the importance of health and fitness” – but also increase school security because they are trained to spot and evaluate potential threats and counter them before they occur.

Might I also add that they're trained in the safe and effective use of firearms. Oh, but having armed security officers in school won’t help stop shooters, or so the left claims. Tell that to the elementary school students in Gadsden City, Alabama, who may not have been alive today if it weren’t for their school having locked doors and an on-site security officer.

https://thenationaldesk.com/news/americas-news-now/police-shoot-man-aggressively-trying-to-get-into-alabama-elementary-school-official-say-walnut-park-gasden-city-schools-superintendent-tony-reddick-gadsdenetowah-county-emergency-management-agency-lockdown-students-teachers-staff-education-safety

A man trying to “aggressively enter” the school tried several doors but couldn’t get in. The principal saw him and altered the school security officer who called police for backup. The would-be school invader engaged the police and was shot dead. No children or teachers were harmed.


Here’s a warning for parents


Just because you send your kids to a self-proclaimed “Christian university,” that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re being taught in a way that’s consistent with Biblical teachings. In some cases, they might be openly hostile to it. Like this story involving Emory University, which I also warn that you will likely find quite offensive.

New Kind of Gas Tax


There are three reasons that you should read this story by Alex Parker at Redstate.com on a move by New Zealand’s government to tax farmers on the gas their livestock pass. (1.) It illustrates so well the insane zealotry of today’s radical green movement; (2.) It shows just how oppressive and intrusive governments can become if you don’t have a Bill of Rights to rein them in; and (3.) It’s hilarious if you’re immature enough to appreciate how many flatulence jokes Parker works into it.

    I admire Mike Pompeo and think he is right on target with his suggestion to employ retired military veterans as school safety officers. The schools in my city, population of 200,000, lock the schools. I picked up my grandchildren from their elementary school on numerous occasions. To enter the front door, you had to buzz the office, know a code, the school office would then allow me to enter, go straight to the office, located just inside the front doors, tell them my name, show my ID, sign in and my purpose for being there. My name and ID was given to the school by my son in advance as a person who was given permission to pick up his children. All outside doors were locked. When the children left school, teachers stood at the door to allow the children out and watched where they went to me at my car. These grandchildren are now in high school which has a safety officer on site and video cameras looking at the parking lots and the streets around the school.

    I would never identify Emory University as a Christian institution.

    I wonder how much money the government meter readers are going to make for the new agency being created in new zeland? (DOEF) Department of environmental flatulence. Masking required daily! The next step will be to monitor it’s subjects or the commoners, us!
    If governments would stop spending our money they would have to come up with stupid ways to tax us!

    About Emory being a Christian campus ... where did you hear that?

    I've lived in Atlanta area over 30 years and never ever thought of Emory as Christian. I've sold to them, had a conservative friend who worked in IT and I've know it as a hot bed of leftism all the time. Emory is where Osoff's wife is a doctor and the area was/id a hippie strong hold. It is just an expensive leftism training ground for the students and a resort, yes resort, for the commie adult. Ugh!

    Regarding New Zealand's fight to save the world from farm animal flatulence, I think there's been talk of a similar measure here. But, I've had one concern; what about wildlife gas? Does a bear flatulate in the woods? What about deer, moose, elk, antelope, squirrels, mice, chipmunks, wolves and wabbits, birds, bats, rats, wolverines, beavers, and what about fish? Do fish fart? And what's to be done about domestic pet gas? How many degree's Celsius will dogs and cats raise the global temperature over the next 10 years?! The scientific genius AOC says we don't have much time. I say, it's us or them! Declare open season on any living thing that walks on 4 legs. Put those assault weapons to good use saving the planet!

    Liz Cheney showed the world how much Donald J Trump is loved and there is no doubt this was a stolen election.People are more sure of it than ever. Thank You Liz!!!! My GOD I have never seen such love for one man!!!

    Due to nausea, I was not able to watch much the Jan. 6 trial. I am so glad it is Huckabee and team doing the watching. Beware, however, it could drive you to drink.

    One thing I know for sure is that if Donald Trump really wanted to foment an insurrection and remain in office, it would not have been attempted with a few hundred unarmed people. As the lady stated, what universe am I now living in? Do those Committee people have any idea how ridiculous they look and sound? These are our lawmakers! The Democrats like Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, even Johnson and Carter would be incredulous. Can you imagine what Tip O'Neil would say?

    May God forgive Emory. We must pray for these people as they know not what they do.

    My evangelical Presbyterian Church now has a number of Methodists attending and one retired Baptist minister to boot.

    RE: " Here’s a warning for parents ". Just to ad to your commentary Mike. When I was a Baby Christian in the 80's our Pastor showed a video series " A Distant Thunder ". In it was one scene where the forces of the ' Anti-Christ " arrested a Christian family who was turned in by one of their own children. Her sister a Christian said to the Child who turned them all in " How could you turn us in?! You're a Christian! ". The reply was chilling to me then and now. " Just because you say you are a Christian doesn't mean you are one!!". Wow! I've learned you will know a Christian by their love. And a caution " Indeed they ( false Christians ) honor us with their lips but their heart is far from us). 2 Corinthians 13) For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14) And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light KJV.
    But have faith! - Look to Jesus and to him alone, Jesus has overcome the world! And he is Alive and well! We know not the hour, but I'm looking forward to that day when the eastern sky splits, the Trump of the Almighty God sounds and the Lord Jesus returns for his own The Bride of Christ! And we are with him forever and ever!
    Dear God how I Love Jesus! ( I've got Holy Goose Bumps writing this!)
