The Biden presidency has been beleaguered by exploding inflation for Americans.

Hit by rates as high as 9.1% just a few months back, Americans are paying thousands of dollars a month more for the same lifestyle that had under President Trump – if they have those extra thousands of dollars.

Low- and middle-income families have been hit hardest, because the inflation has caught up their food and energy costs – elements that no family can simply eliminate from a budget.

Then the Federal Reserve under Biden has repeatedly pushed interest rates higher, costing those same families, at least any with credit card, car or other debt, more there, too.

Now Fox News is report that even Democrats are fed up.

Fifty-nine House Democrats have joined with GOP colleagues to insist the White House assess the inflationary effect of Biden’s executive orders before they are issued.

Fox explained, “The bill is the latest effort by Republicans to pump the brakes on Biden administration policies that they say are causing the highest inflation levels seen in decades. But the bill was also supported by 59 Democrats, and easily passed in a 272-148 vote.”

It would require that any executive order that has an annual budgetary effect of $1 billion or more would have to first be studied by the administration for its possible inflationary effects on the economy, which Republicans say would make Biden think twice about imposing costly new rules on the public.

Biden’s orders already have had catastrophic effects on families, with his orders against fossil fuel projects pushing fuel prices into the stratosphere and his climate change ideologies also hitting Americans’ pocketbooks.

Some Democrats still opposed the precautionary move, with Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., blaming the higher costs faced by millions of Americans on COVID and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

She claimed that, “There is no evidence that government spending or executive orders by President Biden have increased inflation.”

Other Democrats even claimed that Biden’s $1.9 trillion “Rescue Plan” and $700 billion “Inflation” spending plans helped “tame” inflation.

Economists have been more realistic, confirming those acts “drove inflation higher.”

Fox provided the background: “Republicans have vowed to control congressional spending now that they run the House and argued that Biden also needs to be put in check because he is too casually issuing orders that lead to higher prices for Americans. The GOP has cited two examples of Biden executive orders that have had inflationary effects — one that revoked the Keystone XL pipeline permit, and another in late 2021 that requires the government to move toward buying only electric-only vehicles over the next decade.”

House Oversight and Accountability chairman James Comer, R-Ky., said the facts are that, “Pushing one big-spending policy after another, President Biden has continued to throw fuel on the inflationary fire. That fire is rapidly consuming the wages of our constituents. They have had to pay higher and higher prices for everything from eggs to electricity, all while inflation pushes their real wages further and further behind.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: Long the world’s most Christian nation, America today is being taken over by a new “official” national religion, one being imposed on the entire populace by every major societal institution, from government, media and big tech, to academia, entertainment and business.

This new state religion is Wokeism. “Going woke” conjures up visions of someone claiming to be acutely sensitive (“awake”) to “systemic social and political injustice.” And not just alleged bigotry against blacks, but toward every other “minority” as well, from LGBT folk – especially everything transgender and “nonbinary” – to “undocumented immigrants.” All of them, being VICTIMS, intrinsically more virtuous than the shameful oppressor class: primarily heterosexual white males.

This new “woke” consciousness has turned America upside-down – from the nationwide Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots in 2020, to tearing down of historic monuments, to demanding multi-million-dollar reparation payments for blacks, to appointing transgenders as top government officials, to rampant reverse discrimination in every area of life, to the U.S. military imposing mandatory “diversity training” and transgender pronoun use on all personnel, causing recruitment to disastrously plummet.

Yet there is hope. Being “saved” – which in Wokeism is called being “woke” – is largely a matter of worshipping victimhood by becoming an “ally” and “defender” of all the many victim classes, and a determined enemy of the straight white male oppressor class. Thus, “joining the righteous” as an ally – even if one is cursed to be a straight white male – opens the door mercifully for salvation, even to the most wretched.

That is the power of the religion of Wokeism. And it’s explored as never before in the February 2023 issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine. If you’ve ever wondered, for example, exactly how the most radical elements in American society are successfully pressuring the biggest corporations into adopting the most outrageous and immoral policies imaginable, even when doing so permanently damages and devalues the company, the stunning answers are in this issue of Whistleblower, titled “WOKEISM: AMERICA’S OFFICIAL STATE RELIGION.”
