Ingraham: Has the price spike ever caught your attention?

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Fox News host Laura Ingraham told viewers Thursday on “The Ingraham Angle” that it’s time to ask whether the economic chaos unfolding before our eyes is the result of incompetence or careful planning.

LAURA INGRAHAM: Has skyrocketing prices ever caught your eye?… Meanwhile, to make a bad situation worse, we may actually soon be facing a shortage of truckers. Owner-operators are facing what is being called an existential crisis due to the skyrocketing cost of diesel fuel – and food prices? Forget that. Bloomberg’s headline today caught my eye. Chicken wings for $34? Pent-up inflation is pushing food prices even higher. Consumer food prices rose 9.4% in April compared to last April. It’s the biggest gain since 1981. Holy smokes.

Of course, Biden is very ignorant. We know that. And his cabinet is woefully incompetent. We know that. But the headwinds that Americans currently face in nearly every aspect of our lives can’t be an accident. None of this was predestined. Now the Biden team has chosen to cancel the oil leases, shut down Keystone, step up all those regulations. They gave the green light to a proxy war against Russia… launched tens of billions in military aid to Ukraine? Oh, yes, we can afford it. They paid people not to work, even after the vaccines were available. Of course, they also bailed out blue states that refused to open up with Biden’s so-called Recovery Act. They allowed millions of migrants, we pay for it, to cross the southern border. They hand over American authority to international bureaucracies. And to this day, they refuse to stop scaring Americans about COVID. Oh, for good measure, they even threaten free speech. Hate speech, of course, is all they disagree with. Now, I could go on and on, but these policies are all designed to make you poorer and more dependent on the government.
