1) Gas prices are getting worse – they could TRIPLE. Thanks Biden.
One year ago, President-elect Joe Biden warned that Americans would have a “very dark winter” because of COVID. Now that he is president, Biden may give Americans a Valley Forge winter — a season that could be both brutally cold and bitterly expensive. That could produce a political disaster that surpasses all of Biden’s previous bungling.
Natural gas prices have jumped more than 180 percent since September 2020, and that will spur increases in electricity costs. Home heating oil prices have jumped 115 percent over the past year. Fuel oil is up almost 60 percent from a year ago. The federal government forecast last month that home heating costs could rise 54 percent this winter — but heating costs could actually triple, according to some private forecasts.
2) Terrorists storm the US Embassy:
Houthi rebels have stormed the American embassy in Yemen and taken hostages, the Washington Free Beacon reported Thursday.
Within a month of taking office, President Joe Biden removed the foreign-terrorist organization designation placed on the the Houthis by the Trump administration. The designation had cut the Houthis “off from financial support and other material resources that are routed through U.S. banks or other American institutions.” Secretary of State Antony Blinken called the decision “a recognition of the dire humanitarian situation in Yemen.”
3) These numbers send chills down Nancy Pelosi’s spine.
While Republicans were pleased by the success of state-level candidates in Virginia and New Jersey in last week’s elections, a more in depth look at where the GOP won should not just worry but terrify Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats, who are trying to avoid a wipe out in the 2022 mid-term elections for the the House of Representatives.
Democrats currently hold 17 of the 23 total U.S. House of Representatives seats from both states, and in 2018/2020, Democratic candidates either won or came close to winning three more. Yet on Tuesday, November 2nd, Glenn Youngkin and Jack Ciattarelli carried 12 of them, six in each state, and came close in two more. That means six Democratic Congressmen sit in seats in which the voters chose Republicans last week, several by lopsided margins.
