Biden’s lying lips:
Empty supermarket shelves resemble poor and totalitarian countries, not America
How do you know when a politician is lying? Answer: when his lips are moving. It’s an old joke, but it fits the Biden administration.
The president went to Atlanta last week, where he made claims that would have sent a lie detector off the chart. With a tableau of mostly Black people behind him, President Biden again asserted without credible evidence that Republicans are trying to stop minorities from voting.
That this is probably false on many levels does not deter Mr. Biden, other Democrats or fundraisers from making the claim. In addition to lying, they are also confirming their belief that too many voters accept whatever they are told from political leaders, especially Democrats. One reason is that the major media rarely questions their assertions, while Republicans and their policies are under constant media examination and assault.
The Atlanta speech apparently was viewed by the administration as a good way to change the subject from the economy and the worst inflation in 40 years, but polls show the public isn’t buying it. In major cities, they see supermarket shelves nearly empty of food and other staples. These are scenes more recognizable in poor and totalitarian countries, not America. Who should they believe, their “lying eyes,” or politicians? The verdict is in. --->READ MORE HERE
Grocery stores grapple with bare shelves:
Amid a monthslong supply chain exertion, shoppers across the United States have recently noticed plenty of empty shelves at grocery stores.
Early on during the pandemic, shelves that usually contained toilet paper were bare. After nearly two years, some people are having trouble finding basic food staples such as meat and bread in stock when they go to the local grocery store.
Experts say there are several reasons some grocery stores are having trouble with food shortages and that those causes have converged into a perfect storm that is wiping shelves clean.
One factor is the labor shortage, brought on by the omicron variant of COVID-19, which began taking hold across the U.S., and the world, in December and has since been peaking. Some days the case count reached close to 1 million per day. The previous highest daily average of new coronavirus cases was about 250,000 per day in January last year.
While cases exploded, hospitalizations and deaths didn’t balloon at the same magnitude, mainly because the omicron strain is less deadly. In addition, nearly 3 in 4 people ages 12 and older have received at least two doses of the coronavirus vaccine.
Because of the flood of new infections, workers across the supply chain have been testing positive or feeling ill — and thus have been unable to go to work. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said that even infected people with mild cases should stay home from work and isolate for five days, down from 10, to avoid adding to the spread.--->READ MORE HERE
