Sara Carter’s exclusive report with the National Black Farmer’s Association President reveals one critical message for President Biden: “If you want this country to survive, take care of the American farmer.”
Fox News contributor Sara Carter spoke to the President of the National Black Farmer’s Association, John Boyd Jr., from Boydton, Virginia to discuss the inflation crisis. Inflation is hurting farmers and consumers around the country and “the American people” are going to pay the price. “Because this is a crisis” said Boyd.
“The three things that the American farmer can still do better than anywhere else in the world is produce corn, wheat and soybeans. And when you don’t support them, you are taking away the base and the freedom to farm in this country.”
Carter pointedly asked “who is not supporting them?”
“Well right now it’s the Biden administration” he responded.
“If you could speak to President Biden directly, what would you say to him?” Carter followed up.
“I would say ‘you gotta take care of the American farmer in this country. That’s rural America. You can’t turn your back on rural America. If you want this country to survive, take care of the American farmer.”
Pointing to the ground, Boyd gave a heartfelt plea: “this is called land. Land knows no color, land knows no party. Land produces food. And when you take away that ability for the American farmer to produce food, it’s about as low as you can go.”

Biden spends $1.65 trillion taxpayer dollars while vacationing in St. Croix
While vacationing in the island of St. Croix for the holidays, President Joe Biden on Thursday signed into law the massive $1.65 omnibus spending package.
The whopping 4,155 pages was supported by only nine House Republicans and 13 Senate Republicans. Majority of criticism from the GOP includes concerns that the bill was rushed and crammed with wasteful spending by a lame-duck Democratic-dominated Congress. The recourse will punish American families by adding to the national debt and exacerbate inflation.
“Today, I signed the bipartisan omnibus bill, ending a year of historic progress. It’ll invest in medical research, safety, veteran health care, disaster recovery, VAWA funding — and gets crucial assistance to Ukraine,” Biden tweeted. “Looking forward to more in 2023.”
Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell “praised the bill on the grounds that it represents a real decrease in discretionary spending. He presented it as a positive that nondefense spending jumped by only 5.5 percent, from $730 billion to $772.5 billion, amid an inflation rate of 7.1 percent” writes National Review.
“The bipartisan government-funding bill that Senators Shelby and Leahy have finished negotiating does exactly the opposite of what the Biden administration first proposed,” he said. “This bill provides a substantial real-dollar increase to the defense baseline . . . and a substantial real-dollar cut to the non-defense, non-veterans baseline,” McConnell insisted as negotiations were wrapping up.
House minority leader Kevin McCarthy, however, stated his strong disapproval of the bill before it even advanced. Affirming a letter from 13 House Republicans, McCarthy demanded the bill is reckless, irresponsible, and a “purposeful refusal to secure and defend our borders.”
For example, it failed to incorporate protections for Title 42, the pandemic policy that allows illegal immigrants to be expelled on a public-health basis, which currently hangs in the balance at the Supreme Court.
National Review adds, “The funding in the bill, which averted a federal government shutdown before the new year, includes an allocation of $45 billion in defense assistance to Ukraine. Some Republican priorities, such as Electoral Count Act reform and a bigger military budget, were nested in with Democratic appropriations, such as increased funding for Medicaid and food stamps.”
