Editor’s Note:

EDITOR'S NOTE: When you have progressive liberals like Rep. Pramilia Jayapal tweeting that “Inflation is giving corporations cover to raise prices and pad their wallets,” any American with even the slightest knowledge of basic economics (and regardless of partisan bias) can smell the BS. The far-left Dems don’t want to fess up to their own fiscal irresponsibilities and they want to keep their spending agenda on the table while placing blame on someone else for the costs they’re running up. Meanwhile, food banks are once again on the rise as new entrants to the food insecurity category are increasing thanks to Biden’s and the Fed’s inflationary push. Remember, the Biden administration said this was going to be a transitory phenomenon. Later, he said that inflation was somehow good as it correlated to economic growth. Now, he’s blaming Russia. Jayapal took a different stance. Early on, she said on several occasions that the solution to inflation was backing their new energy bill, which fell flat on its face. It’s always something else, it seems. And when a government either can’t recognize the source of the problem or try to gaslight you into believing that the source of their self-created problems lies elsewhere, then you can almost guarantee things are going to get much worse for much longer.

Food Bank For New York City sees long lines as inflation sits at fresh 40-year high.

A New York City food bank executive noted that there have been new "entrants to the food insecurity space" as soaring inflation impacts millions of Americans.

Zanita Tisdale, the senior director of member engagement at the Food Bank For New York City, said during an interview that aired on "Varney & Co." Tuesday that those new "entrants" are "really having to navigate" inflationary pressures because "a dollar does not stretch as far any longer." 

Tisdale provided the insight after it was revealed that inflation accelerated more than expected to a new four-decade high in June as the price of everyday necessities remains painfully high, exacerbating a financial strain on millions of Americans. 

The Labor Department said Wednesday that the consumer price index, a broad measure of the price for everyday goods, including gasoline, groceries and rents, rose 9.1% in June from a year ago. Prices jumped 1.3% in the one-month period from May. Those figures were both far higher than the 8.8% headline figure and 1% monthly gain forecast by Refinitiv economists. 

SEVERE RECESSION NEEDED TO COOL INFLATION, BANK OF AMERICA ANALYSTS SAY

The data marked the fastest pace of inflation since December 1981.
