Ladies and gentlemen we are not only in a recession but we are at the threshold of socialism. If patriotic lawmen will not be the majority in the Congress in 2022. We can now say goodbye to our freedom. The whole world will be under an evil totalitarian globalist govt.

Who watches Fox News ? And who cares about a top economist ? They sure as hell don’t care about us. 🙌

joe schmoe August 1, 2022 - 8:00 PM

Can't wait for them to change the meaning of a depression or starvation

Big Mama Sammy August 1, 2022 - 8:00 PM

Obviously they are not fact checkers but violent goons of the dnc. Vote Trump Republicans.

christina trinh August 1, 2022 - 8:00 PM

Facebook did the same to me. How can you complain to them? They don't answer

Jose Mendoza August 1, 2022 - 8:00 PM

We are at 9.1% rate inflation + Recession (2 conscutive negative GDP growth)
Make no mistake, inflation is a monetary phenomenon. It occurs when the increase in the quantity of money more rapidly exceeds that of goods and services (Dr Milton Friedman)
To combat it requires more production and less public spending…

Brian Eaves August 1, 2022 - 8:00 PM

They kept saying inflation when it was supposed to be recession

kerpital August 1, 2022 - 8:00 PM

Keep checking Webster's definition. What are the chances they delete the part that says "identified by a fall in GDP in two successive quarters" ???

Gary Petty August 1, 2022 - 8:00 PM

Close to Election Day therefore they change the rules!! FJB!!

Facebook is about to censor those who mention free speech.

Ken Carney August 1, 2022 - 8:00 PM

Becoming Partisan Actors, they've been Partisan Actors since at least 2016 FB is just another propaganda arm of left.

Newhouse Bruce August 1, 2022 - 8:00 PM

Most of the Facebook fact checkers that are utilized directly or indirectly are undergrad liberal art students who are judging science, law, mathematics, medicine, economics, pharmacology, history, etc.

Kevin Ward August 1, 2022 - 8:00 PM

Facebook "Fact-checkers" should be called "Truth suppressors".

CRIMSON HAWK August 1, 2022 - 8:01 PM

Facebook is Anti American.
Bet the 🐑 don’t care.

Jimmy Bright August 1, 2022 - 8:01 PM

Did to bust Facebook up..they can't be more powerful then the government

Lorenzo Cabrini August 1, 2022 - 8:01 PM

Don't use Facebook, don't use Twitter. That's the best solution, just refuse to use platforms that are partisan.

Elie A. August 1, 2022 - 8:01 PM

They censored them because they know better than the economists. 😂😂😂😂

WYTROSE August 1, 2022 - 8:01 PM

Same thing happened last puppet admin look at the stock market that is not how they calculate the health of a economy jobs are decreasing not one job created a week ago it was minus because they were dumping people out of corporation. They are shutting down manufacturing. EV are killing people and don't last run on fuel see Scotty kilmer. Solar panels are made from coal and quartz and windmill from steel run by fuel fires don't work. Globalist 7 trancers of wealth put them in control of the government executive order 1467 ends petrol dollar for digital dog tags social scoring. Don't agree say goodbye to homes funds jobs food. Scoring at your bank.

polemeros August 1, 2022 - 8:01 PM

We can't have a definition of a WOMAN, so why do you think they'd respect the definition of a recession? And believe me, they ain't finished.

bellofthedesert August 1, 2022 - 8:01 PM

Politico is very far left – can't trust anything they say due to their obvious agenda. FB is a joke with their "fact checkers". We aren't stupid, and FB is mostly irrelevant anyhow.

Michael Gautreaux August 1, 2022 - 8:01 PM

Typical "Face Sewer Book".
Beats "Twitter". Yeah, yeah, not by much but hey.

Allen Pullman August 1, 2022 - 8:02 PM

I quit fb and suggest all do the same.
