The flurry of major media stories announcing that the Biden Administration has, at last, conquered inflation gives the sense of a rearguard action asking the American people to believe anything but their own lying eyes.
Food prices have skyrocketed globally because of Biden’s policies and demoRAT spending rising energy prices, increases that are imposing a heavy burden on poorer people around the world and threatening to stoke social unrest Food prices rose 9.6% since September 2020 Meat, poultry, fish, and eggs rose 14.5%, the most drastic increase among food items.

We aren’t supposed to notice that the disastrous economics of the Biden years are about to be visited upon American homes and communities. We aren’t supposed to notice that the most egregious hoarder of unsecured classified documents isn’t Donald Trump, but Joe Biden. We aren’t supposed to notice that the people who have spent the past half-decade fulminating about democrat norms and free speech are the same ones who implored Big Tech to shut down both. We aren’t supposed to notice that the original sinner of biographic fabulism in Congress was not a Republican Congressman from Long Island but a Democrat Senator from Massachusetts. Also, a Democrat Senator from Connecticut. Also, a former Democrat Senator from Delaware.
This brings us to the value of in-group signaling to them. For us, the great mass of ordinary Americans, the incessant birdshot-peppering of increasingly preposterous talking points of the day — “drag queen story hour is good for kids,” perhaps, or most recently, “your gas stove is killing you” — can seem a bewildering snowstorm of weirdly tactical pinpricks. For the regime and its defenders, however, they are marching orders to a swarm. That swarm, activated and directed, has the virtue of moving on command, turning on a dime, and given the proper objective, overwhelming its victims.
We can do better. The future of the Right, and therefore the future of America, is in coalitions**. It is putting America first.**
