In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Fox News’ Steve Hilton exposes the socialism of Democrats like Psaki

White House press secretary Jen Psaki last week made a statement that shows Democrats either have no understanding of how the economy works, or they do, and they favor socialism.

More likely both, with an emphasis on the latter.

Psaki was commenting on the notion that companies have reacted to increased taxes by passing costs onto consumers.

“There are some — and I’m not sure if this is the case in this report — who argue that, in the past, companies have passed on these costs to consumers,” she said. “We feel that that’s unfair and absurd, and the American people would not stand for that.”

Note the psychology here. Businesses are supposed to behave as the government wants them to — absorb tax increases — not as economic need demands. Of course they’re going to raise prices in response to higher costs in the form of taxes.


Is her thinking that they also should not raise prices if another cost — say, that of raw materials — rises? Or just when the government makes them pay more?

The next step, of course, is for the government to start telling businesses what to charge for goods and services. Then, are deeply into socialism.

  1. Thanks for sharing, Rebekah. Steve Hilton is good. He tells it like it is. I need to start watching him on my laptop or at least the short clips they show on the website. I don’t have cable TV, never have in my 72 yrs of existence, never had a desire to have it; I still don’t

    I agree 100% with you Rebekah when you wrote that these people have no idea of how the economy works or they favor socialism, probably both.

    Steve Hilton, in the clip, points out how these demoncrats (biden, psaki, etc) have never had a real job. They’ve only had political positions and/or demoncratic party machine positions which are not real jobs but ideological generation entities, ideology that’s harmful to our country. They are at polar opposites of President Trump and his administration who had real business experience; our country prospered for that. God bless President Trump

    1. My husband and I love Steve Hilton and never miss his hour show on Sunday night. Hilton frequently has the smart, insightful Tammy Bruce on the show, so it’s double the pleasure!!

      Hilton has been ahead of the ball on almost all the issues we’re discussing now. For instance, he was one of the first to address Gain of Function and Fauci’s role in it.

  2. This is all by design. Overwhelm the border, collapse private health insurance, enable labor & supply shortages, collapse our economy…our most despicable enemies couldn’t do any better than the Biden administration is doing to destroy our country.

    1. Couldn’t agree more with you, OK lady. Putin, Chinese dictator Xi and others are happy and very proud of biden, his administration, the demoncrats and other forces who are helping these vicious dictators accomplish their goal which is to destroy America.

  3. I used to work at a family saloon. Nice crowd, pool table, juke box, no troubles.
    One of the bartenders was giving out ‘free’ drinks claiming the owner only paid $6 for the whole bottle.
    We know the most expensive drink in any bar/saloon/restaurant is that glass of water. No charge to the customer, but the owner has to pay the rent/mortgage, the utilities, the machine that makes the ice, the employee who serves the water, and the one who washes the glass. oops, he had to buy the glass.
    That’s what our idiot politicians don’t understand about business profits.
    They think because some CEOs take home millions a year that all business is awash with cash, can spare some more for the ‘good’ of everyone. The reality is most businesses run on minimal margins with every cent counted and used as wisely as possible.

    1. ” … a family saloon”.

      Yes, I would say the family built that business. What comes to my mind is what then president obama said. He said “If you think you built it, you didn’t”. I consider that an insult to hard working Americans who worked hard to “build” their own business. But then again obama was a member of the elite, a politician who never had a real job just like Steve Hilton described.
