Joe Biden is running for re-election to the White House on his Bidenomics.

That’s what he calls his economic policies. His critics prefer to call it Bidenflation.

The actual numbers behind that agenda shows they are anything but positive for Americans.

In fact, rent has exploded by more than 20% under Biden’s practices, monthly mortgage payments are up by a shopping $696 and food and other basics are up by equal percentages.

In short, it’s costing American families thousands of dollars a year more, just to keep the same food on the table, drive the same type of car and live in the same type of home as when Biden was elected.

“I wouldn’t count on prices broadly declining,” explained Moody’s chief economist, Mark Zandi, in a report in the New York Post.

Some of the facts that Americans see in their monthly expenditures, even if Biden, living in the White House while maintaining a presidential residence in Wilmington, Delaware, and a nearby luxurious beach home, doesn’t. is reporting that the media monthly asking rent last month was $2,011. Just three years earlier, before Biden, it was $1,667.

The American Community Survey reveals that the average monthly mortgage in 2020 was $1,621. Now it’s $2,317, for a nearly $43% hike.

In 2020 a new car averaged $41,152, now it’s $48,008.

Gasoline? Was $2.14 as Biden was preparing to move into the White House, now it’s $3.35.

The Post reported, “President Joe Biden this week spun the latest inflation numbers as good news for Bidenomics — cheering that October’s Consumer Price Index climbed a slightly less-than-expected 3.2% from last year.”

But the reality for consumers isn’t the 3.2% rate announced in October, it’s the “blistering” 18.2% hike since Biden took office.

The report noted eggs are up 47%, coffee up from $4.52 to $6.18, staples overall were up 33% with white bread up from 50 cents to $2, and increases of 22% for chuck, bacon, sirloin and chicken.

The Post said, “Meanwhile, President Joe Biden has been pushing his Bidenomics agenda that has consistently claimed to ‘reduce the [government’s] deficit’ despite recently-released Treasury data showing the red ink has doubled over the past year, from about $1 trillion to $2 trillion (yes, with a ‘T’).”

The results are inevitable. CNBC reports as of October, 60% of adults said they are living “paycheck-to-paycheck.”

“Overall, 4 in 10 consumers consider themselves worse off relative to 2022,” the report said. “Even as credit card debt tops $1 trillion, almost all — or 96% — of shoppers said they expect to overspend this season, according to a separate TD Bank survey.”

Three in four Americans say they are stressed about finances, and households have been tapping into their savings just to pay monthly bills.

““While consumers have found a way to manage through inflation, it’s concerning that many plan to tap into savings, and even exceed their budgets, to finance their holiday purchases, which may leave them vulnerable to an unexpected emergency,” said Alia Dudum, LendingClub’s money expert.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Shortly after Hamas terrorists fired over 5,000 rockets from Gaza into Israel on Oct. 7 and then proceeded to attack the Jewish state by land, sea and air – torturing, burning, beheading and murdering well over a thousand people, including women, children and infants, and wounding and abducting hundreds more – world reaction was, in its own way, almost equally shocking.

For after the biggest one-day mass slaughter of Jews since the Nazi Holocaust, what followed was an outpouring of celebratory demonstrations, unbridled Jew-hatred, deliriously gleeful support for Hamas and bitter condemnation of the nation of Israel. Not just in the Arab-Muslim world, but throughout the Western world as well, including all across America.

Why? What is behind the explosion of anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, pro-terror sentiment in the United States, where Israel has long been one of America’s closest friends and allies? Why are hordes of young “woke” LGBT demonstrators marching in support of Hamas – when Hamas wouldn’t think twice about binding and blindfolding them and throwing them off the roof of a tall building – as they routinely do in the Muslim world?

It turns out there’s one area of agreement that is so powerful, deep-seated and all-consuming that the vast differences between the deranged left and the murderous jihadists melt away into Kumbaya harmony.

All of this and much more is completely exposed in November’s issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled ISRAEL VS. GLOBAL JIHAD: How Jew-hatred, radical Islam and Leftism are pushing us toward World War III. Beyond a deeply insightful dive into why leftists are surging toward radical Islam – which hates and dreams of raping and butchering them – this Whistleblower issue includes fantastic articles by everyone from top Israeli analyst (and former Israel Defense Forces officer) Caroline Glick to Harvest Christian Fellowship’s Pastor Greg Laurie on the current war in Israel and biblical prophecies regarding the End Times … which he says are now upon us.

WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
