🚨 Inflation hit its highest rate in OVER 30 YEARS in October 🚨

-Overall prices up 6.2%
-Food prices up 5.3%
-Gas prices up 49.6% (!)
-Electricity prices up 6.5%


Thanksgiving is right around the corner and folks can’t even find turkeys, let alone afford them.

-Turkeys were over 60% out of stock at the end of October

-Poultry, meat, fish, and egg prices are up 11.9%

No matter how @WHCOS tries to spin it, inflation is bad for workers.

Real hourly wages decreased .5% in October due to these price spikes… Image
Out of control spending is contributing to this problem.

But that didn’t stop 32 Republicans from helping Democrats pass a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill that will add a quarter trillion to the deficit.

Next week – House Democrats want to ram through another massive spending bill that will pour gasoline on this inflation inferno.

“Moderate” Democrats should pay attention to the data and kill this bill before it’s too late.

The American people have been subjected to absolutely INSANE levels of lying, misinformation, and dishonesty from the Biden administration over the past 10 months

Since the corporate media has no real interest in pointing it out, here’s a list:

Let's start with the lie that Biden wouldn't call for a federal vaxx mandate

Then President Elect Biden said in December of 2020 "No - I don't think it should be mandatory. I wouldn't demand it to be mandatory"

We all saw how that turned out

Going back to COVID response, we're also being sold a load of garbage over Biden's vaccine mandate:

To begin, while this mandate makes no consideration for natural immunity, a recent CDC admission points how effective it actually is vs a vaccine:

NEW: A 24-year-old Honduran charged with murder crossed the US border illegally while posing as a minor amid the #BidenBorderCrisis

INEXCUSABLE. This is the exact sort of thing Rep. Roy has been fighting against since Biden took office

(THREAD) 🧵🧵🧵

The victim was "a father of four who had taken in the immigrant who told authorities he was 17."

“This horrific crime is the latest example of how unfettered illegal migration costs Floridians’ lives,” @GovRonDeSantis office told @nypost

FACT CHECK: TRUE, more below 🔽🔽🔽
"In keeping with President Biden’s border policy on unaccompanied minors crossing the US border, Ulloa wasn’t turned away"

"It is not clear how Ulloa ended up in Florida after being detained in Texas"

Because BIDEN ENDED Trump's Title 42 protocols for unaccompanied minors

The House of Representatives just voted to pass the #NDAA, 316 - 113

134 Republicans voted for it.

While many of them are going to focus on the uncontroversial parts of this “bipartisan” defense bill, there’s plenty in there that isn’t getting enough attention:

THREAD: (1/9)

First, this bill forces young women to register for the draft, which Rep. Roy has been against from the start.

"A vote for this #NDAA is a vote to draft your daughter, your sister, your mother & your wife" Image

Next up on the list, this #NDAA actually targets the Second Amendment rights of America’s military personnel with unconstitutional, gun-grabbing “red flag” laws.

Yes, that means violating the Constitutional rights of those defending the Constitution. Image

“Today, I voted against the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for FY22.

“I support the fundamental purpose of the NDAA to ensure we have well trained service members with all the tools necessary to carry out their mission — but unfortunately it has been hijacked by the radical left.
“Under no circumstances will I support a NDAA that requires my daughter — and thousands of other young women — to register for the draft. I will not stand for it.

19 Republican senators just voted for a $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” package that’s filled with leftist garbage.

There’s been a lot of smoke and mirror efforts to hide what’s in this bill, so let’s take a look at what they actually voted for.

🧵THREAD 🧵(1/14)
First, the bill isn’t focused on hard infrastructure and instead provides billions to Green New Deal programs.

For example, it funnels $16.2 billion to renewable and energy efficiency projects and $7.5 billion to electric vehicle chargers. (2/14)
Even when it funds "hard" infrastructure, it also wastes your money on programs that have no business being in an “infrastructure” bill.

Of the $65 billion for broadband, over $14 billion goes to a permanent federal welfare program to pay individuals’ internet bills. (3/14)

Today, I objected to the seating of my colleagues from six states: AZ, GA, MI, NV, PA, and WI.

It would confound reason if the presidential results of these states were to face objection while the congressional results of the same process escaped public scrutiny.
I believe our body should vote on the certification of those members to ensure the integrity of the House of Representatives is guarded from all suspicion of illegitimacy.
While the Constitution and the 12th Amendment do not make Congress the judge of the states’ presidential electors, it does require us to be the arbiters of the elections to this body.
