Rickards is Right: Biden’s Out

It’s always a treat to see politicians and their minions repeating meaningless phrases and slogans to get the populace to believe something.

In the run-up to former UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s failed snap election, she kept repeating “strong and stable” with respect to her government. That’s because her government was weak and chaotic, but she tried her damnedest to get across a different message.

So it is with Bidenomics, whatever the hell that is.

You see it all the time on X.com (formerly Twitter): BIDENOMICS WORKS.

They even dug up Paul Krugman to claim on CNN’s Amanpour that U.S. economic data were “surreally good.” I guess “really good” wasn’t good enough for Biden’s handlers.

The thing is, people see what’s in their wallets and don’t give a damn about data. And it looks like Joke Biden is about to find this out in real-time.

Paradigm Publisher Matt Insley recently interviewed macro guru Jim Rickards on why Biden won’t be the Democrat Nominee for President, let alone win the Presidency again.

If you haven’t watched the video on our brand-new Paradigm Press YouTube channel, get over there and watch it after your morning cuppa. Over 104,000 people already have.

But if you thought, “Come on, who else are the Dems going to run?” I’ve got news for you. Even The Wall Street Journal looks like it agrees with Jim.

Before I explain why, I want to let you in on a conversation I overheard recently:

This is the most critical chart in America today...

It’s not inflation, interest rates, bond prices, or anything like that...

It shows the number 17...

Yeah, I see it... 

I want to be very clear: if this number hits ZERO, mark my words — I believe all hell could break loose here in America.

I'm talking… $250 oil... $15 gas...

Shortages of all types of critical items... Everything from food to water...

I'll tell you more about this chart in a moment…

But I believe the coming weeks will be make or break for millions of Americans.... And if you wait to prepare, it could very well be too late.

Listen in on this secret conversation at 17DaysTilChaos.com.

Now, why is Joke Biden finally - finally - in trouble?

Battleground States

The Wall Street Journal reluctantly ran a story on how Trump is killing Biden in the battleground states.

The latest Siena College-New York Times poll of six battleground states, released on the weekend, is a five-alarm fire for Democrats a year before the election. It shows Mr. Biden losing to Donald Trump in five of six states on which the 2024 election is likely to hang.

Mr. Biden trails Mr. Trump by 10 points in Nevada, six in Georgia, five in Arizona and Michigan, and four in Pennsylvania. He leads only in Wisconsin in the survey, and there by two points. Those are awful numbers for an incumbent and would add up to more than 300 votes in the Electoral College. Numbers like that could help the GOP pick up Senate seats in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Arizona.

It’s music to my ears.

After The Journal’s new, but usual, lefty hand-wringing, it writes:

His Bidenomics pitch hasn’t worked as voters remain sore about rising prices and a fall in real wages during his Presidency. His age and carriage are huge weaknesses even against the 77-year-old Mr. Trump.

“It’s the economy, stupid,” James Carville once said.

Lower Inflation Isn’t Deflation

Feast your eyes on this tweet:

On July 13, 2023, this passage appeared in the Rude:

Year-on-year CPI was expected to come in at 3.1% but was actually 3.0%. Last month, it was 4.0%.

Year-on-year core CPI came in at 4.8% versus an expected 5.0%. Last month, it was a hefty 5.3%. 

So, the inflation numbers have come down. That’s indeed good news.

However, prices are still rising. Just slower than they once were.

In that edition of the Rude, I describe the differences between inflation, disinflation, and deflation. Feel free to reread at your leisure.

I’m glad it only took The Times only four months to catch up… or it could’ve been bad!

The Censorship Industrial Complex

If things weren’t bad enough for Creepy Joe, here’s Jim Jordan’s tweet bombshell from yesterday:

I know this is no shock to you or me. But it’s finally gotten out. “They” were spying on us and censoring us the entire time.

In case you were wondering, CISA is the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.

CISA’s responsibilities include:

  • Preparing for, responding to, and mitigating the impact of cyberattacks.
  • Providing tools and resources to help organizations reduce their cyber risk.
  • Responding to active, widespread exploitation of vulnerabilities.
  • Supporting efforts to maintain safe and secure houses of worship and related facilities.
  • Hosting and participating in events throughout the year to engage stakeholders, seek research partners, and communicate with the public.

Censorship and spying on US citizens don’t seem to be included, as far as I can see.

Jordan continued:

Here’s how it worked:

-EIP “stakeholders” (including the federal gov’t) would submit misinformation reports

-EIP would “analyze” the report and find similar content across platforms

-EIP would submit the report to Big Tech, often with a recommendation on how to censor

Who the heck is the EIP, you ask?

EIP stands for Election Integrity Partnership. The EIP is a “non-partisan” (AHEM!) collaboration with a tightly defined mission (HA!) to find and investigate false rumors and disinformation about election processes and procedures.

The EIP partnered with CISA in 2020 to help them understand rumors and disinformation around the 2020 election so CISA could provide corrective and clarifying information from election officials.

This is about as Orwellian as it gets.

And who did the EIP monitor?

That’s about every conservative who matters… except for the conspicuously absent Ben Shapiro. Interesting.

All this is about to blow up in Biden’s face.

Wrap Up

Between the failing “Bidenomics,” his lack of marbles, and now the outing of the Censorship-Industrial Complex, Trump is crushing Biden in the places Biden needs to win.

Jim Rickards will be proven correct once again.

The Dems will have run Gruesome Newsom or another such undesirable against The Donald.

Have a great day!
