Fed Chair Jerome Powell is slated to dent the Democrats' and media's constant lie that inflation is short-term and "transitory" only-- he says it will persist longer than many are claiming.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, in remarks to be delivered Tuesday, cautioned Washington legislators that the causes of the recent rise in inflation may last longer than anticipated.

...

"Inflation is elevated and will likely remain so in coming months before moderating," Powell said. "As the economy continues to reopen and spending rebounds, we are seeing upward pressure on prices, particularly due to supply bottlenecks in some sectors. These effects have been larger and longer lasting than anticipated, but they will abate, and as they do, inflation is expected to drop back toward our longer-run 2 percent goal."

Jen Psaki deflects a question about companies raising prices in reaction to the Biden Puppetry raising taxes on them, by saying... that would be "unfair."


Kathy Hochul's daughter-in-law is, get this, a lobbyist at a pharmaceutical company with business in New York.

Weird how the sons and daughters of the Ruling Class consistently go into occupations where they are paid to persuade their own family members, huh?

For some reason, the Marvel Comics series where they made half of the Guardians of the Galaxy gay has been cancelled.

Marvel has abruptly canceled its “Guardians of the Galaxy” comic book, a rebooted series in which several members of the troupe of galaxy-hopping superheroes came out as bisexual or gay.

Although Marvel offered no explanation for making the Sept. 22 issue the last of the series, Mark Lynch of FanSided noted that the 18-issue relaunch had embraced LGBT storylines under its writer Al Ewing.

"Peter Quill came out as bisexual (Guardians of the Galaxy No. 9), Richard Rider (Nova) admitted his love for Quill, Moondragon and Genis-Vell were married, and Hercules and Marvel Boy started a relationship," Mr. Lynch wrote in a Sept. 24 article. "It was clear that Ewing cares about these characters and it spilled out in his writing and it's unfortunate that the series is ending after so much thoughtful storytelling."

Thoughtful. "Let's turn all the characters with 40 year histories gay for Twitter Validation Points." Very thoughtful.

Obviously, this is So Stunning and So Brave, but apparently Marvel Comics isn't quite as Stunning and Brave as they would like you to think: Apparently they made this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy an alternate-reality version of them.

However, the rebooted comic book was spun off into an alternate reality, since actor Chris Pratt continues to play the lead role of Quill on screen as heterosexual, while the rebooted comic depicted his character’s attractions to men.
