While Joe Biden is making empty promises about dealing with inflation (and not being honest at all about it’s sources), the private sector once again proves why it’s always going to be a better option than the public sector. Germany’s mega grocery chain Aldi, which operates more than 2,000 stores in the United States, announced a throwback to 2019 pricing to help alleviate the substantial rise in consumer goods prices.
According to some estimates, the price of a traditional Thanksgiving meal will be almost 14% higher than 2021. The year-over-year cost of Turkey alone has risen an eye-opening 23%.
In response to the rapid increase in food prices, which along with the federal printer working overtime have also been particularly affected by foreign policy decisions and domestic policies directed at curbing fossil fuel use, Aldi’s president Dave Rinaldo released a statement that read in part:
Providing amazing products at the absolute lowest prices is what we’ve always done, and we know right now that’s more important than ever…
We expect to welcome tens of millions of customers in our stores this Thanksgiving season, and we want them to know they can count on us. So why not attempt that additional side dish this year, or invite over a few more friends or family members? You can rest easy knowing ALDI has your back this Thanksgiving, and beyond.
As Aldi seeks to attract customers through an attractive exchange in the free market, Joe Biden has taken the opposite approach, simply gaslighting the public that food costs are not what they seem and that consumers can simply exercise a different choice at the store. For an administration that once claimed inflation was a minor disruption – transient, as they said – it makes sense they;’d continue to lie to the American people that their incomes are shrinking right before their eyes.
“By the way,” Biden said last month, “the food prices — the main driver of food prices — is not the price of beef and eggs, etc., although they’re up. It’s packaged goods, packaged goods.”
Ignoring the root cause of the inflationary spikes and how his administration would deal with it, Biden punted and casually remarked Americans could buy off-brand products.
“You’re going to see people not buying Kellogg’s Raisin Bran,” he said. “You’re going to see them buying other raisin bran, which is going to be a dollar cheaper.
This is the same group of people who, last July 4th, boasted that the cost of a traditional cookout was cheaper by a whopping six cents compared to the previous year. While everyone was starting to notice ominous signs and trends, the Biden administration blatantly gaslit the public to think otherwise. Here’s that infamous tweet, which has now been fact-checked under Elon Musk’s new ownership:
Planning a cookout this year? Ketchup on the news. According to the Farm Bureau, the cost of a 4th of July BBQ is down from last year. It’s a fact you must-hear(d). Hot dog, the Biden economic plan is working. And that’s something we can all relish. pic.twitter.com/7h9qLauIbC

God for Aldi on this one. As the Daily Wire concludes:
Whatever the case, just remember that this is apparently the price we all have to pay to save democracy in Ukraine, despite the fact that prices were rising before Russian boots were ever on the ground.
As covered Thursday, Biden’s presidency feels a bit like we’re stuck repeating the same day over and over again, and we’re all forced to hear the same bogus stories ad nauseam.
But now, thanks to Aldi, we can momentarily travel back in time to a better era under Trump. The sale will last from November 2 – November 29.
