How Twitter fact-checked President Biden’s tweet

With Elon Musk’s purchase of the social media giant, Twitter, people are hoping for a return to free speech and facts on the platform. It may be too soon to tell, but people were pleasantly surprised when Twitter fact-checked one of President Biden’s tweets when his office gloated: “Seniors are getting the biggest increase in their social security checks in 10 years through President Biden’s leadership.” In response to the now-deleted Tweet, Twitter pointed out in a statement below the tweet, that the increase was simply an automatic cost of living adjustment due to inflation caused by the Biden administration. The fact check stated: “Seniors will receive a large Social Security benefit increase due to the annual cost of living adjustment, which is based on the inflation rate. President Nixon in 1972 signed into law automatic benefit adjustments tied to the Consumer Price Index. Pub. L. 92-336 (1972).” READ: Twitter praised for fact-check on White House account: ‘Fact checks are getting factual now!’

Ex-Keystone pipeline employee blames Biden for energy crisis

A former welder who worked on the Keystone Pipeline, says President Joe Biden is to blame for America’s energy crisis in an interview with Fox Business. The pipeline that was intended to ship oil from Canada to refineries in Texas was shut down by President Biden as part of his move to green energy. Breitbart provides the details: “I don’t know how he gets away with keep saying that he doesn’t have anything to do with [high gas prices] when they’ve got everything to do with it,” Neal Crabtree said during an interview this week with Fox Business. Crabtree previously worked on the Keystone XL project and was among hundreds of others laid off after the president took office. Biden canceled the federal permit for the pipeline that would have brought vast amounts of oil on a daily basis from Canada down to the state of Texas. The move was meant to prioritize clean energy over fossil fuels.

American inflation hits 40-year high in September

A month after US President Joe Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act into law on Aug 16, 2022, America’s inflation rate hit another 40-year high in September. It was a higher-than-expected increase. The New York Post reports: US inflation surged 8.2% in September — a steeper-than-expected increase as stubbornly high rent and food costs look poised to ensure another sharp Federal Reserve interest rate hike next month. The September reading of the Labor Department’s Consumer Price Index, a closely watched measure of the costs of goods and services, showed a 0.4% increase compared to August — more than economists expected. Core inflation, which excludes volatile food and gas prices, spiked 6.6% in September, up from 6.3% in August. The annual core increase was the largest of its kind since August 1982. On a monthly basis, core prices increased 0.6%.

Report: Biden’s extremist policies have cut oil production in the US by 3 million barrels a day

According to a report by the Committee to Unleash Prosperity, President Joe Biden’s oil and gas policies are as much the reason for the recent escalation in gas prices as OPEC+’s decision to cut oil production, Breitbart reports. There was a dramatic rise in gas prices across North America recently, after OPEC+, which includes Russia, announced it would be reducing oil production by two million barrels a day. However, the committee countered that if Biden’s policies had maintained the direction of the previous administration, the increased oil production in the US would have more than countered this OPEC+ cut. The group estimated that Biden’s extreme environmental policies done in the name of climate change have reduced US oil production by upwards of three million barrels a day. Breitbart provides more details: According to the study, Biden’s war on American energy will cost the United States nearly $100 billion in output every year, which translates to between two and three million barrels of oil a day, the same amount of production OPEC+ cut Wednesday. Yet Biden …

The New World order?

There has been a lot of talk about how left-wing politicians are trying to use the COVID pandemic as the basis for a great reset. The mainstream media is, of course, calling it a conspiracy theory, but for a second opinion watch this comment by Biden advisor Brian Deese: RELATED: High gas prices worth it for ‘future of liberal world order,’ White House economics adviser tells CNN Here is Brian Deese’s bio: Senior Advisor Brian Deese I wonder if they will soon be giving Deese a note telling him to enter the room, when to sit down, how long he can speak, when to leave the meeting, and a reminder to thank participants.

Has the Taliban seized billions of dollars in US military equipment?

According to an article in the New York Post, President Joe Biden’s botched handling of America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan has resulted in the Taliban seizing billions of dollars of American weapons that had been previously given to the Afghanistan army. According to the report, the American government has giving the Afghan army over $28 billion in weapons since 2002, including several helicopters gifted over the past couple of months. Provided they have not been damaged or destroyed, the Taliban now potentially has access to upwards of 600,000 assault rifles, nearly 20,000 night-vision goggles, 200 aircraft including Black Hawk helicopters, 2,000 armoured vehicles and as well several military drones. Some have suggested the night vision goggles are the biggest concern as it allows the Taliban to operate at night. According to the report, over the past four years, the American army gave the Afghan army, “7,035 machine guns, 4,702 Humvees, 20,040 hand grenades, 2,520 bombs and 1,394 grenade launchers.” Of course, the Taliban is expected to use this treasure trove of American weaponry to suppress the …

OPEC says NO, after Biden begs for more oil

After effectively shutting down America’s oil industry by cancelling oil and gas leases and, as well, the Keystone pipeline, last week US President Joe Biden was begging OPEC to increase oil production as American citizens are being pummelled with 40%+ increase in gas prices since January this year. Well, according to Reuters, OPEC has decided. The answer is ‘No’. They will not be increasing oil production. READ: OPEC+ Rejects Biden’s Call to Pump More Oil This is what happens when you make yourself dependent on the charity of others in your attempt to appease the environmental radicals in the Democrat Party. Apparently, Russia is now an unofficial member of OPEC, an international oil cartel that includes some of America’s dearest friends such as Iran, that limits production to keep oil prices high.
