Electricity, gasoline, food … Practically all the components that make up the general CPI (the shopping basket) are rising sharply. Thus, the CPI rose 0.5% in August, which has brought the year-on-year inflation rate to 3.3%. However, the worst could be yet to come. Funcas experts believe that inflation will exceed 4% in the coming months, reaching thirteen-year highs.
Due to the behavior of the price of electricity , Funcas has proposed a new scenario. As Raymond Torres, director of the Funcas Coyuntura, explains, “electricity has become the most volatile and determining component of CPI fluctuations – compared to oil , relatively stable and, therefore, with less incidence in price fluctuations. -. ”
Thus, in the central forecast scenario, it is assumed that the price of oil will remain stable and that the price of electricity will fall by 15% in the next two months after the measures announced by the Government (reduction of VAT and other taxes that tax the invoice).
Review on the wing of inflation
In this case, inflation will exceed 4% in the coming months , hitting thirteen-year highs. However, during the last month of 2021 it would begin to lose steam, always if everything else remains constant, to drop to 3.9% in December -five tenths more than in the last forecast-.
Inflation in Spain could exceed 4%
The average annual rate, in that case, will be 2.7% – compared to the 2.5% previously expected. In 2022, the latter would be at 2.2% and the year-on-year for December at 1.4%.
However, there is another even more ‘dangerous’ scenario for inflation. If the price of electricity did not fall and remained stable – like oil – the interannual rate for December would be 4.5%, with an annual average of 2.8%. This 4.5% rate would be the highest since September 2008, when the CPI stood at 4.6% in Spain.
Florida Congressman Supports ‘Natural Immunity Is Real Act’ – Latest Push Opposing Vaccine Mandates
Florida Congressman Daniel Webster has co-sponsored a bill — called Natural Immunity is Real Act — introduced by Tennessee Congresswoman Diana Harshbarger. The bill is the latest push against vaccine mandates by federal health officials as it requires federal agencies to take into account naturally acquired immunity from previous COVID-19 infections when issuing any rules or regulations aimed at protecting from the deadly virus.
What is Natural Immunity Is Real Act?
A group of House Republicans launched the Natural Immunity is Real Act on Monday, Click Orlando reported.
According to Webster, he is supporting the bill because peer-reviewed studies and federal health experts acknowledged that those who have recovered from COVID-19 have natural immunity protection.
Webster also said that the bill is just a way of saying that there are other options for protecting the people against the virus than just the vaccine.
The Florida Congressman also said that though he endorses and supports the COVID-19 vaccines, he is openly against vaccine mandates and federal regulators must accept other protections from the virus.
“This is not anti-vaccine, [it’s] just a realization that there are other things going on out there and we have to accept there are other immunities from having the disease,” he was cited as saying by the outlet.
Members Of Medical Community Oppose The Bill
Pediatric pulmonologist Dr. Akinyemi Ajayi expressed his disagreement over the bill.
“Here is the problem with the whole natural immunity argument, and it’s the fact that quite frankly today none of us can look you in the eye if you have not been infected with COVID at all and say if you get COVID it will be a mild infection you don’t have to worry about it,” Ajayi said.
Ajayi added that even though some natural immunity protections are developed from a repeat infection, it is unclear how long the protection lasts. He believes that there is provable way to identify natural immunity.
The bill introduced, however, does not include details of how the natural immunity will be identified.
The Natural Immunity Is Real Act has already been introduced in the senate, the same week that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced a request for a special session over vaccine mandates.
Florida Man Faces $50 Daily Fine Over Hanging ‘Trump Won’ Banner Outside His Home
A Florida man faces a $50 daily fine for displaying a banner outside his home that reads “Trump has won,” a reference to the former Republican President Donald Trump.
Plans to Place ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ Banner
Part-time resident Marvin Peavy will be charged by the Walton County, Florida, a $50 daily fine beginning on Oct. 25 if he doesn’t take down the banner from outside of his home, Newsweek reported.
Peavy said he also plans to install a banner that says “Let’s Go Brandon,” which is a phrase the conservatives have mixed with “F*ck you, Joe Biden,” — a clear insult to President Joe Biden.
According to the county, the part-time resident’s banner violates signage regulation in Peavy’s home at the 30A scenic corridor. The corridor is also a part of a beachside route, famous for its natural beauty.
As per the county’s legal code, political signages must be removed 15 days after political campaigns conclude.
Further, Peavy’s banner, according to county officials, also violates a section of the code prohibiting homes from putting up “(s)treamers, feather flags, pennants, ribbons, spinners and other similar devices” that might undermine the corridor’s natural beauty.
According to Northwest Florida Daily News, Peavy has no plans of taking the banner down, saying that he can easily pay the fine and others offered to pay it on his behalf.
But his attorney told Charles Cronin, Walton County Code Enforcement Officer, that Peavy knows of the violation and would take the banner down soon, the report said.
Peavy Defends Himself: ‘How Many Trumps Do You Know?’
The display of the banner is to annoy “seaside liberals” and “the 1 percent leftists,” Peavy was quoted as saying by Newsweek. Peavy has also claimed that the banner may indicate Trump’s self-proclaimed golfing championships and not the recent election.
He also stated that the banner may refer to others, not the former president, asking, “How many Trumps do you know?” The banner is also “just a statement” for Peavy, and “not political,” the report said.
He is set to sue the county for breaching his First Amendment Right.
Peavy’s Financial Support To Trump During 2020 Election
Back in the 2020 campaign season, Peavy had donated more than $9,000 to different Trump and Republican-related groups, according to the records from the Federal Election Commission.

DeSantis Vs Biden
