In a stunning example of how the entertainment-media complex colludes to disseminate the totalitarian left’s blatantly false messaging, Democrat mega-donor and former entertainer Barbra Streisand took to Twitter on New Year’s Eve to insist that puppet President “Joe Biden’s economic record in his first year is the best in 40 years.”
She added ludicrously, “The media largely ignores this.” Barb’s suggestion that the almost uniformly leftist, sycophantic news media would somehow cover up such an accomplishment, if it were remotely true, is laughable.
The blame isn’t entirely Streisand’s. She was simply echoing one of Biden’s own tweets. On Dec. 29, he or his handlers wrote, “We’re ending 2021 with what one analyst described as the strongest first-year economic track record of any president in the last 50 years. Let’s keep the progress going.”
Biden didn’t identify that “one analyst,” because he or she doesn’t exist. The demonstrable truth is that Biden’s first year has left Americans with skyrocketing inflation, energy prices explicitly aimed at bankrupting the fossil fuel industry, economic “growth” that even the state media functionaries at CNN have labeled “disappointing,” and fears that 2022 will bring even more financial misery for the middle class.
To paraphrase Chico Marx: Who ya gonna believe – Hollywood and the media, or your lyin’ eyes?
