During a White House press briefing on Friday, President Biden’s Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked if the administration would cite the recent job numbers as evidence that the country is not in a recession .
“I’ll say this, the strong labor market is what we’re looking at, right?” Karine rhetorically asked. “That tells us, because of the strong labor market, and that being one of the many economic indicators, shows us that we are not in a recession , that we are in a transition, and that is very important to note,” she finished. According to CNN , the August 5 jobs report showed that the US economy added 528,000 jobs in July which means the country has “regained all jobs lost during the pandemic.”
The unemployment rate during Donald Trump’s presidency was at a historic low of 3.5 percent according to CNBC . In 2019, the county entered the Covid pandemic with both low unemployment and a booming economy. The constriction on the country’s industry and commerce along with various lockdowns and mandates caused the shedding of jobs that were predicted to return as soon as the country reopened.
In May 2021, Biden was faced with a slower return to employment as expected, set against the backdrop of the country having paid most citizens to stay home through acts such as the American Rescue Plan and various Covid stimulus payments.
The slow job growth continued through the fall of 2021 and started to rebound in 2022, where reports still often fell short of forecasts.
Jean-Pierre’s denial of the country being in a recession relies on the administration’s recent redefinition of the term in late July.
Biden changed the standard definition of the word recession, from a decline evidenced by the fall in GDP over two consecutive quarters to a more malleable one […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
