Indiana GOP Congressman Jim Banks reacted to the news of two L.A. Sheriff’s deputies fighting for their lives after being ambushed and shot at a train station.
Earlier the L.A. County Sheriff issued a statement on twitter, calling for left wing protesters to ” Not to block emergency entries and exits to the hospital. People’s lives are at stake when ambulances can’t get through.”
To the protesters blocking the entrance & exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling "We hope they die" referring to 2 LA Sheriff's ambushed today in #Compton: DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ENTRIES & EXITS TO THE HOSPITAL.

“Obviously, a tragic story. And from Indiana, our thoughts and prayers go out to these police officers,” said Rep. Banks on Fox and Friends on Sunday morning. “But we’ve seen this coming. We’ve seen the radical left move from chanting defund the police to death to police. And what every Democrat should answer on every Sunday morning show this morning that they appear on, is whether or not they will support the police and call on this left-wing mob around the country to stand-ups and to support the police instead.”
Rep. Banks called on Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Nancy Pelosi to “call on their supporters to stop the madness, support our law enforcement officers, and quit engaging in violent activities like these.”

Americans should brace for ‘real pain’ at the gas pump
A spike in gas prices will likely begin in March, according to Patrick De Haan, the head of petroleum at GasBuddy. De Haan says all Americans may soon be facing California-esque gas prices.
Biden’s rising inflation could push gas prices for regular unleaded fuel to above $4 a gallon. “We’ll start to see gasoline demand surge, along with refiners doing maintenance ahead of the summer driving season, creating a squeeze” De Haan told Fox Business.
Earlier this month, GasBuddy projected the national average price for a gallon of gasoline could climb to a high of $4.13 in June. California cities could have average costs of over $5. Currently the nationwide average is $3.314 per gallon according to the American Automobile Association.
The highest-priced gas averages are $4.650 in California, and Texas sits at the lowest average of $2.942. Nonetheless, U.S. drivers are being warned to expect “real pain” at the pump when the spring travel surge begins.
Inflation is currently at the highest level in almost 40 years. Last week the Labor Department said the consumer price index has risen 7 percent over the last year. President Biden has called inflation “a global challenge” and attempted to claim the latest numbers are good news, point to a monthly rate of price increases around December.
After the report came out, Biden said, “Today’s report—which shows a meaningful reduction in headline inflation over last month, with gas prices and food prices falling—demonstrates that we are making progress in slowing the rate of price increases.”
“At the same time, this report underscores that we still have more work to do, with price increases still too high and squeezing family budgets” Biden did admit.
Daily Mail reports “nationwide, gas prices did drop 2.2 percent in December from the prior month, but remained 50 percent higher than a year ago. Food prices were up 0.5 percent on the month and 6.3 percent higher than a year ago, making it unclear what falling food prices Biden was referring to.”
