Already, Biden's policies and Democratic spending have created some of the worst inflationary conditions the U.S. has seen in nearly 50 years. Food prices continue to skyrocket, while food production is expected to be much less this year due to a huge shortfall of fertilizer -- due in large part to the fact that Vladimir Putin does not fear the feeble dementia patient in the Oval Office nor his team of foreign policy lightweights. With lower food production, we will get increasingly higher food prices.
And that's if we can even find enough food: There is a massive government-induced baby formula shortage in our country, perhaps for the first time in our history, and industry experts have said it won't be solved anytime soon, despite Biden invoking the Defense Production Act to ramp up production (good luck finding the workers in the current labor market).
But perhaps the leading driver of inflation is Biden's war on fossil fuels. No sooner than he took office than he began signing a series of executive orders aimed at destroying all President Donald Trump had done to make America energy independent for the first time since the 1960s: He killed the Keystone XL pipeline project while ending the sale of oil and gas leases on federal lands. He also signed an order barring drilling off the coast of Alaska, which contains enough oil and gas to help power our economy well into the next century. And most recently, his government canceled several more leases on federal lands and in the Gulf of Mexico -- all of which have led to massive spikes in gasoline and diesel fuel prices.
And since oil and gas literally power the transportation system needed to produce food and products and get them to market, higher gas and diesel prices literally lead to higher prices on everything.
Worse, there are gas and diesel shortages already happening, which will lead to gas prices so high they could literally trigger a rebellion.
Gas stations across the US are running out of fuel and in anticipation of an increase in gas prices, gas stations in the state of Washington are reportedly reprogramming pumps to include double-digit numbers in "price per gallon" as the current trend could put prices over $10.00.
At the 76 Gas Station in Auburn, Washington located at 1725 Auburn Way North, gas pumps have been reprogrammed to make room for double-digit pricing. In March, they still had single-digit programming.
The report noted that throughout the eastern part of the state, gas stations are running out of gasoline altogether. In the Tri-Cities region of Kennewick, Pasco, and West Richland, customers pulling up to the pumps find notes that say the station is out of gasoline and only has diesel in stock -- "which wasn't an issue in the past."
"Joe Biden just canceled a 1-million-plus acre oil lease in Alaska. It’s like they’re intentionally trying to have high gas prices," Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), tweeted May 13.

Communist revolutionary Vladimir Lenin's strategy to bring about an uprising against the czar in 1919 was comprised of four words: "The worse, the better" -- meaning, the worse conditions were, the more people would be radicalized for change.
Only, Biden and the Democrats are currently in power, not Republicans, though with the help of the media and social media, the far-left will likely succeed in convincing tens of millions of Americans that all of the chaos they have created is really Trump's fault.
