Fox News contributor Joe Concha stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night to discuss the disastrous presidency of Joe Biden; saying his administration is causing direct “pain” for millions of American families.
“This is the pain presidency… Americans, Republicans, Independent, Democrats, all feel the pain on inflation, the pain of gas prices up more than 40%, food… That’s why Thanksgiving is going to be so expensive,” said Concha.
“The pain of feeling less safe with violent crime engulfing cities across the country. The pain of addiction,” he added. “No Psaki Bomb is going to fix this. They won’t visit the border. They won’t visit port cities.”
Economists are now warning American families that this Thanksgiving Holiday will be the “most expensive meal in the history of the holiday.”
Supply chain shortages, lack of workers, and inflation are causing prices for every-day items like pumpkin pie, sweet potatoes, turkey, and corn to skyrocket.
“Thanksgiving 2021 could be the most expensive meal in the history of the holiday. Caroline Hoffman is already stashing canned pumpkin in the kitchen of her Chicago apartment when she finds some for under a dollar. She recently spent almost $2 more for the vanilla she’ll need to bake pumpkin bread and other desserts for the various Friendsgiving celebrations she’s been invited to,” reports the New York Times.
“Matthew McClure paid 20 percent more this month than he did last year for the 25 pasture-raised turkeys he plans to roast at the Hive,the Bentonville, Ark., restaurant where he is the executive chef. And Norman Brown, director of sweet-potato sales for Wada Farms in Raleigh, N.C., is paying truckers nearly twice as much as usual to haul the crop to other parts of the country,” adds the newspaper.
Thanksgiving 2021 is shaping up to be the most expensive meal in the history of the holiday. Nearly every ingredient, from the turkey to the after-dinner coffee, is expected to cost more than ever. https://t.co/JIVaUiucuC

“I never seen anything like it, and I’ve been running sweet potatoes for 38 or 39 years,” Mr. Brown said. “I don’t know what the answer is, but in the end it’s all going to get passed on to the consumer.”

CARTER 2.0: Southeast Gas Stations Ration Fuel, Cars Line-Up, Drivers Wait for Hours
Americans in the southeastern section of the country had flashbacks of the 1979 Oil Crisis this week when gas stations began rationing fuel in the aftermath of a major cyberattack against a pivotal pipeline.
“The closure of the 5,500-mile Colonial Pipeline, which carries more than 100 million gallons of fuel from Texas to New Jersey each day, has stretched into its fifth day,” reports the New York Post.
“It sparked wild scenes of panic buying across Georgia, Florida, Virginia and South Carolina — with North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp even declaring states of emergency in their areas. Kemp also issued an executive order suspending Georgia’s gas tax through Saturday to help offset the costs of higher fuel prices,” adds the newspaper.
“I DON’T HAVE ANY GAS AND THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA DOESN’T HAVE GAS!! WHAT IN THE 2021 IS GOING ON !!” one panicked driver tweeted.
“I’ve seen all these cars waiting and I was like, ‘OMG. I have to fill my tank up!’” said another.

“It was unbelievable. When I was driving today, I thought it was a catastrophe coming! I’ve seen all these cars waiting and I was like, ‘OMG. I have to fill my tank up!’” said one local in South Carolina.
Gas prices jumped six cents within 24 hours, raising the national average to nearly $3 per gallon.
“If this outrage goes past the end of the week … prices could spike pretty dramatically,” said Kevin Book of Clearview Energy Partners.
