    Podhoretz and company just cannot give Trump the credit he deserves for the Abraham accords. It is absolutely sickening the depth of their inability to see the reality of his foreign policy triumphs.

    on inflation, does it make sense that the price of oil will not continue to rise?  It is not like demand for oil is rising. Or that the cost of production is going up. 

    What I think Biden and democrats should really worry about is the rising price of rental housing.  The US is still bringing in more immigrants. Those people all need housing. Which increases the demand and price.

    He said “We were just talking about the remarkable achievements of the Trump Administration in the Middle East with the Abraham Accords” and “Trump did remarkable work as President, particularly there”. Sounds like giving credit to me. However, there is a “but” as there so often was with Trump. Trump’s actions after the election. Just think if Trump had accepted the election results and immediately moved on to talking about his accomplishments compared to the horrible mess we are in because of Biden. He’d be able to waltz into the Presidency in 2024. But then, he wouldn’t be Trump.

    I would like to see reporting on the extent that low income Americans are being squeezed by the cost of living.  Zero hedge had a graph last week that showed that auto repos are rising. https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/car-repos-loans-originated-2020-and-2021-are-skyrocketing
    The concern being that the stimulus checks in 2020 and 2021 really helped people make ends meet.  That and the suspension of rental evictions.  How soon before the democrat minority voters start to demand money – money that the party cannot deliver?

    Just imagine what the economy will be when the next interest rate hikes come. It will kill the housing market stone dead and so many other sectors are connected to housing. We aren’t getting out of this without a lot of pain and Democrats still think the answer is more government spending.

    If you go back to the actual discussion on the Middle East, they never mentioned Trump’s name. They talked about Netanyahu and his speech to the Congress and gave proper credit for the impact that had. They discussed a few others but not Trump. Then in the very last minute of the podcast they only mention his name so they could contrast with the January 6 hearing.
