Biden administration Donald Trump Intelwars Media Bias New York Times Russia Russia bounty Troop bounty

US intelligence backs away from report of Russia putting bounties on American troops

U.S. intelligence officials said on Thursday they have “low to moderate confidence” in last year’s damning reports of Russia putting bounties on American troops stationed in Afghanistan.

The
New York Times first reported last June that the GRU, Russia’s military intelligence agency, was secretly offering financial compensation to Taliban militants in Afghanistan for attacks on coalition forces. Other major news outlets confirmed the report.

At the time of the report being published, then-President Donald Trump dismissed the story as a ”
made up fake news media hoax.”

Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany reacted to the report by saying, “The Russia Bounty story is just another made up by fake news tale that is told only to damage me and the Republican Party. The secret source probably does not even exist, just like the story itself.”

The report was referred to during a 2020 presidential debate by then-candidate Joe Biden, who like many Democrats, used the story to paint Trump as being soft on Russian President Vladimir Putin and not caring about American service members.

“I don’t understand why this President is unwilling to take on Putin when he’s actually paying bounties to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan,” Biden said in October.

Tim Kaine (D-Va.) also weaponized the story to slam Trump.

“Trump was cozying up to Putin and inviting him to the G7 all while his administration reportedly knew Russia was trying to kill US troops in Afghanistan and derail peace talks with the Taliban,” the former Democratic vice presidential candidate wrote on
Twitter.

Former President Barack Obama used the Russia bounty story to attack Trump only days before the election.

“When Russia puts bounties on the heads of our soldiers in Afghanistan, the commander-in-chief can’t be MIA,” Obama said, taking a shot at Trump.

On Thursday, the U.S. intelligence community backed away from the report that Russia put bounties on the heads of American troops to destabilize the U.S. military in Afghanistan.

“The United States intelligence community assesses with low to moderate confidence that Russian intelligence officers sought to encourage Taliban attacks against U.S. coalition personnel in Afghanistan in 2019, including through financial incentives and compensation,” a senior administration official
told reporters. “But because of the low to moderate confidence element of this, our focus is on sending a clear message to Russia about the steps the United States would take in response to such behavior if it were to continue.”

“It’s challenging to gather this intelligence and this data,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said during the daily briefing. “While there is low-to-moderate assessment in these reports, we felt it was important for our intelligence community to look into it.”

“I’m not going to speak to the previous administration, but I will say we had enough concern about these reports and about the targeting of our men and women serving, the men and women who are proudly serving around the world, that we wanted our intelligence community to look into it,” Psaki added. “This information really puts the burden on Russian and the Russian government to explain their engagement here. We still feel there are questions to be answered by the Russian government.”

“The safety and well-being of U.S. military personnel and that of our allies and partners is a matter of the absolute highest U.S. national security interests,” a senior Biden administration official
said on Thursday. “Our men and women in uniform have defended our country … promoted our interests and values around the world, and we cannot and will not accept the targeting of our personnel like this.”

Russian officials have denied the accusations.

The assessment was delivered on the same day that the Biden administration introduced
sanctions against Russia for the SolarWinds cyberattack and alleged interference in the 2020 election. The White House said the sanctions will attempt to deter “Russia’s harmful foreign activities.”

Ana Cabrera Charlie Chester CNN court battle Defamation Donald Trump Headline News Intelwars James O'Keefe Joe Biden Lawsuit LIES Mainstream media malice pays cnn political bias Project Veritas propaganda ruling class The Matrix the system United States wake up won't see on CNN

James O’Keefe Of Project Veritas Sues CNN Over Defamation

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe has announced that he intends to take CNN to court for making false statements about his conservative media organization. He says more sensational revelations about the network are to come as well.

O’Keefe said “we believe we can win” hours after releasing bombshell videos of a director saying the network uses “propaganda,” according to a report by Sky News.  “Ana Cabrera is the host that lied about us and said that we were taken down for – she mentioned misinformation,” O’Keefe told Fox News. “That’s just simply not so. “Actual malice is the standard in the US, we believe we can win against CNN, so I’m announcing on your show I’m going to sue CNN for defamation.”

O’Keefe has an uphill battle, considering he’s using the United States government’s system, which pays the mainstream media to lie and propagate stories, to try to beat their lapdog. Maybe it’ll work, but it likely won’t have a lasting effect, unlike the propaganda already solidly stuck in the heads of the American masses. Using the system to try to beat the system is a guaranteed way to fail. As long as CNN is backed by the government and being paid to do their bidding, no court (which is the government) will go against them.  It’s probably past time to realize this and just exit the system entirely.

On the other hand, O’Keefe is doing what he feels is right, and hopefully, his lawsuit will have some effect on the muddles minds of the sheep. He is going to continue to release videos of CNN employees saying that what they are doing is literally “propaganda” and in one, a CNN employee can be heard saying “if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out.”

That doesn’t exactly sound unbiased. According to a report by RT, O’Keefe also teased the release of a second part of the video, saying that Project Veritas plans to continue to release more footage. He predicted that CNN would eventually have to explain itself, or fire technical director Charlie Chester, considering he actually says the media outlet is pushing outright fraud when it comes to the massive COVID-19 hoax.

We think [the second part] is even worse. It talks about Covid and some of the fraud and misrepresentation that the network does as it relates to Covid.

Donald Trump Explosion Intelwars Iran nuclear facility ISRAEL Joe Biden nuclear deal Nuclear weapons uranium enrichment

Report: Israel suspected in large explosion at Iranian nuclear site, a ‘severe blow’ that may prevent uranium enrichment there for rest of 2021

Israel is suspected of being behind a large explosion at Iran’s Natanz uranium enrichment site Sunday, which resulted in a blackout and the complete destruction of its power system. It could prevent the facility from enriching uranium for the rest of year, the New York Times reported, citing anonymous intelligence officials.

What are the details?

The Times cited two officials who described a classified Israeli operation that dealt a “severe blow” to Iran’s ability to enrich uranium — and that it could take at least nine months to restore Natanz’s production.

Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, called it an act of “nuclear terrorism” and said the international community must confront the threat, the paper reported.

“The action this morning against the Natanz enrichment site shows the defeat of those who oppose our country’s nuclear and political development and the significant gains of our nuclear industry,” Salehi said, according to Times, which cited Iranian news media. “The incident shows the failure of those who oppose Iran negotiating for sanctions relief.”

The act also “injected new uncertainty into diplomatic efforts that began last week to salvage the 2015 nuclear deal repudiated by the Trump administration,” the paper noted.

More from the Times:

Iran did not say precisely what had caused the blackout at the heavily fortified site, which has been a target of previous sabotage, and Israel publicly declined to confirm or deny any responsibility. But American and Israeli intelligence officials said there had been an Israeli role. […]

It was not immediately clear how much advance word — if any — the Biden administration received about the Natanz operation, which happened on the same morning that the American defense secretary, Lloyd J. Austin III, was visiting Israel. But Israeli officials have made no secret of their unhappiness over Mr. Biden’s desire to revive the nuclear agreement that his predecessor renounced in 2018.

The talks to salvage the nuclear agreement — i.e., Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action — are set to resume this week, the paper added.

‘Sabotage and infiltration’

Malek Shariati Niasar, an Iranian lawmaker and spokesman for the Parliament’s energy committee, said on Twitter that the outage was “very suspicious” and raised the possibility of “sabotage and infiltration,” the Times reported.

More from the paper:

Some Iranian experts dismissed initial speculation that a cyberattack could have caused the power loss. The Natanz complex has its own power grid, multiple backup systems and layers of security protection intended to stop such an attack from abruptly shutting down its system.

“It’s hard to imagine that it was a cyberattack,” said Ali Vaez, the Iran project director at the International Crisis Group. “The likely scenario is that it either targeted the facility indirectly or through physical infiltration.” The intelligence officials said it was indeed a detonation of explosives.

What else has gone down?

Iranian military leaders threatened Israel following mysterious explosions at Iranian nuclear and military sites last year, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

“We warn the Zionist liars and their puppeteers that if they continue their prattle, they will see the upper hand of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the resistance front in action,” Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi was quoted as saying in the country’s state-controlled press, the Free Beacon said.

In November Iran claimed one of its top nuclear scientists was assassinated with Israeli involvement. The Israeli government believed Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was the mastermind directing Iran’s nuclear weapons program in the early 2000s.

Immediately following Fakhrizadeh’s death, the New York Times was blasted for calling Iran’s nuclear program “peaceful.”

In December Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said he had “no doubt” that then-President-elect Joe Biden will “bow” to Iran and rejoin the nuclear deal.

Indeed, the Biden administration in February said it was ready to begin talks with Iran to rejoin the deal.

Campaign 2022 Campaign 2024 Donald Trump GOP Intelwars Mitch McConnell republican party

Trump blasts McConnell in new speech over his refusal to defend Trump after election: ‘Dumb son of a b***h’

Former President Donald Trump lashed out at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in a speech on Saturday, denouncing the Kentucky Republican as a “dumb son of a b***h” for not defending his election challenges.

What are the details?

Speaking with major Republican National Committee donors at his Mar-a-Lago resort, Trump said that now-Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) would have fought for Trump if they were members of the same party.

“If that were Schumer instead of this dumb son of a b***h Mitch McConnell they would never allow it to happen. They would have fought it,” Trump said, the Washington Post reported.

“I hired his wife. Did he ever say thank you?” Trump later added, referring to Elaine Chao, who served as Trump’s transportation secretary.

Later in the speech, Trump promised that Republicans would retake Congress and the White House in 2022 and 2024, but did not say whether he would seek a second presidential term.

“I stand before you this evening filled with confidence that in 2022, we are going to take back the House and we are going to reclaim the Senate. And then in 2024, a Republican candidate is going to win the White House,” Trump said, according to prepared remarks seen by Reuters. Trump later tossed the prepared speech, the Post reported.

What is the background?

Despite their positive working relationship when Trump was president, McConnell and the former president have traded barbs since Trump’s election loss, particularly after the deadly U.S. Capitol riots.

In fact, McConnell directly blamed Trump for the violence following Trump’s second impeachment trial, which resulted in Trump’s second acquittal. McConnell voted “not guilty” on grounds the proceedings were not constitutional.

“There’s no question — none — that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of [Jan. 6],” McConnell said on the Senate floor.

In that speech, McConnell also emphasized that Trump has not been criminally absolved for his actions in office.

“President Trump is still liable for everything he did while he’s in office, as an ordinary citizen, unless the statute of limitations has run,” McConnell said.

“He didn’t get away with anything — yet, yet,” McConnell added. “We have a criminal justice system in this country. We have civil litigation, and former presidents are not immune from being held accountable by either one.”

However, McConnell later admitted that he would support Trump if the former president wins the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

Border crisis Border wall Donald Trump Ilhan omar immigration Immigration crisis Intelwars Migrant Crisis President Biden

Ilhan Omar attacks Biden administration for ‘shameful’ plans to resume construction on ‘racist’ border wall

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) blasted President Joe Biden for his administration’s reported plans to resume construction of the southern border wall.

“It’s shameful and unacceptable for @POTUS to continue the construction of Trump’s xenophobic and racist wall,” Omar tweeted on Wednesday.

Omar lashed out at President Biden after a report this week by the Washington Times that said the Department of Homeland Security is considering continuing construction on the border wall to fill in “gaps.”

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas reportedly told Immigration and Customs Enforcement staffers that due to the recent surge in illegal immigrants, the Biden administration is open to resuming some construction on the border wall.

“The president has communicated quite clearly his decision that the emergency that triggered the devotion of DOD funds to the construction of the border wall is ended,” the DHS secretary allegedly said. “But that leaves room to make decisions as the administration, as part of the administration, in particular areas of the wall that need renovation, particular projects that need to be finished.”

On Wednesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked about the report that the border wall construction is resuming.

“Wall construction remains paused, to the extent permitted by law,” Psaki said during Tuesday’s press conference. “So some has already been funded through a congressional authorization and funding allocation. But as agencies develop for a plan — it’s paused while agencies are developing a plan for the president on the management of the federal funds.”

“Federal agencies are continuing to review wall contracts and develop a plan to submit to the president soon,” Psaki added. “It is paused. There is some limited construction that has been funded and allocated for, but it is otherwise paused.”

“Wall construction remains paused, there is a review under way taking a look at funds that have been allocated,” Psaki said. “We have never believed the wall is an answer to addressing immigration challenges.”

On the campaign trail, Biden ran on rolling back the immigration policies of former President Donald Trump. On Biden’s first day in office, he signed an executive order that halted the construction of the border wall.

“Building a massive wall that spans the entire southern border is not a serious policy solution,” Biden said on his first day as president on Jan. 20. “It is a waste of money that diverts attention from genuine threats to our homeland security. My administration is committed to ensuring that the United States has a comprehensive and humane immigration system that operates consistently with our nation’s values.”

“Approximately 450 miles of wall was constructed under the Trump administration, with officials saying about an additional 350 was funded,” Fox News reported.

Former President Donald Trump hammered the Biden administration over its handling of the current border crisis.

“The wall is just a few weeks away from being completed. [Biden] didn’t want to complete it,” Trump told Fox News. “They should finish the wall, number one. And they should have the [Remain in Mexico] policy reinserted, because if you don’t have that, this is going to be a disaster. …The wall should be completed by now if he let — he stopped it almost at his first day. He stopped construction of the wall.”

“I don’t know what they’re doing. And they don’t know what they’re doing,” Trump said of the Biden administration. “It’s a very, very dangerous situation. I’d love not to be involved. Somebody else is supposed to be doing it.”

Trump went on to say that he was planning on visiting the southern border in the near future.

San Antonio museum pulls Trump wax figure — because they can’t stop people from punching it

Donald Trump has been forced to go into hiding — in Texas of all places.

No, not that Donald Trump.

This Trump is made of wax and was on display at a San Antonio museum.

But then people decided to get violent, so higher ups at Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks on Alamo Plaza decided to move the former commander in chief to storage to protect and repair him, the San Antonio Express-News first reported Wednesday.

What happened?

The Trump figure has been at the museum run by Ripley Entertainment for at least a couple years. A June 17, 2019, Instagram post from the venue showed the fake Trump standing with figures of Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

But as the 2020 campaign became more heated, attacks on the Trump wax figure picked up.

That’s right, people were so upset about Donald Trump that they took to punching, scratching, and gouging a wax statute of him — in a family entertainment venue.

According to the paper, the violence against the inanimate Trump was so rampant, museum operators had to move it to the lobby where attendants could keep an eye on it and try to act as a buffer to keep would-be attackers away.

But that failed to keep visitors from pummeling the statue.

So the museum quietly boxed up the figure and moved him into storage, the Express-News said.

Apparently this kind of violent political behavior is a thing, at least according to Clay Stewart, a regional manager for Ripley Entertainment.

“When it’s a highly political figure, attacks can be a problem,” Stewart told the Express-News.

“We’ve always had trouble with the presidential section because no matter what president it was — Bush, Obama or Trump — they’ve all had people beat them,” Stewart said. “The ears were torn off Obama six times. And then Bush’s nose was punched in.”

“People are just aggressive about their political party,” he added.

brainwashed COVID-19 Donald Trump gene therapies get vaccinated government is slavery Headline News Hoax Intelwars larger agenda liars Mainstream media Masters official narrative plandemic Politicians propaganda safe and effective scamdemic slaves toe the line Trump is in on it urging Americans wake up

Trump Does Fauci’s Bidding & Urges Americans To Get Vaccinated: “I Would Recommend It”

Donald Trump is urging his fellow Americans to take the experimental COVID-19 mRNA gene therapies intentionally mislabeled as vaccines. Trump was quoted as saying: “I would recommend it,” of the COVID-19 “vaccines.”

On Tuesday, Trump urged Americans to get vaccinated to help curb the Covid-19 scamdemic, calling the experimental gene therapies “safe” and “something that works.” He added: “I would recommend it and I would recommend it to a lot of people that don’t want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly,” Trump told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo.

It looks like Trump has done Dr. Antohony Fauci’s bidding and encouraged his supporters to get the vaccine:

Biden Calls On Preachers, Fauci Calls On Trump To Get Skeptics Of Vaccines On Board

“But again,” he continued, “we have our freedoms and we have to live by that and I agree with that also. But it is a great vaccine. It is a safe vaccine and it is something that works.”

Contrary to What the Media is Telling You, Freedom Does Not Come from a Vaccine

Earlier this week, the Trump administration’s coronavirus testing czar, Adm. Brett Giroir, called on Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence to encourage vaccinations in light of the data indicating many Republicans do not intend to get inoculated. “I think it’s very important for former President Trump — as well as the vice president — to actively encourage all their followers to get the vaccine,” Giroir told CNN‘s Jake Tapper on “The Lead.”

This is even more evidence that Trump was a part of this larger agenda. “But I think the point now is, and I think this is where we are, that we all have to get together and urge every American [to get vaccinated],” said Giroir. And that’s exactly what Trump is doing. He’s toeing the line.

The sad part is that many of his supporters will suspend their critical thinking and without a second thought, line up for the vaccine just because Trump told them to.  There’s a reason the mainstream media rolled him out and had him tell everyone to get vaccinated.  It’s time to wake up. They are all in it together and none of it is good for us.

Biden Calls On Preachers, Fauci Calls On Trump To Get Skeptics Of Vaccines On Board

Joe Biden is calling on preachers and priests to propagate the gene therapies that the ruling class is labeling “vaccines” in order to get it into the systems of more people. At the same time, Dr. Anthony Fauci is calling on Donald Trump to promote the vaccine to his supporters who are skeptics.

The propagation campaign has only just begun. Fauci has begged Trump to promote the vaccine in order to get his supporters to line up for these gene therapies.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the media-adored government expert on all things coronavirus, said former president Trump could have a huge impact by encouraging his supporters to get vaccinated. “I think it would make all the difference in the world,” Fauci told Fox News anchor Chris Wallace according to a report by RT.He’s a very widely popular person among Republicans.”

One day later, Biden said that doctors and preachers need to be the ones to talk the public into getting the gene therapy for a disease they don’t have that in all likelihood won’t kill them if they do get it.  “The thing that has more impact than anything Trump would say to the MAGA folks is what the local doctor, what the local preacher, what the local people in the community say,” Biden said on Monday of the advice he’s getting from staffers“So I urge all local docs and ministers and priests to talk about why, why it’s important to get that vaccine, and even after that until everyone is, in fact, vaccinated, to wear this mask.”

See how that works? Biden wants the public to shame those who don’t get the gene therapy because no one goes back to “normal” until everyone is vaccinated.  This shot has a big role in the agenda. It has become obvious that they need as many as possible to willingly take this thing.

Does anyone else get the feeling that there is some kind of a timeline here? The ruling class is really pushing this gene therapy and they seem to be overly concerned with something that has a similar death rate as the common cold.

Study Results: CDC Inflated COVID Numbers By 1600%

This push seems insane, considering they have told us the scamdemic will be with us forever.

When Will COVID-19 End? A Year Into The Pandemic, Public Health Experts Say Never

They are flat out telling us this is never going away and yet still trying to get people on board with the mislabeled vaccine.

Donald Trump Fraud Georgia Intelwars statement Washington Post

Trump issues response to Washington Post correcting story that falsely quoted him

Former President Donald Trump issued a statement Monday in reaction to The Washington Post’s correction to a story where the outlet admitted to misquoting him months ago, when they claimed he told a Georgia elections investigator to “find the fraud” in the state during a post-election phone call.

What are the details?

The Post was torched on social media after issuing a correction to a story from January where the newspaper admitted “Trump did not tell investigators to ‘find the fraud’ or say she would be ‘a national hero’ if she did so,” as they — and several outlet subsequently — had originally reported.

“While I appreciate the Washington Post’s correction, which immediately makes the Georgia Witch Hunt a non-story,” the former president wrote, “the original story was a Hoax, right from the very beginning.”

“I would further appreciate a strong investigation into Fulton County, Georgia, and the Stacey Abrams political machine which, I believe, would totally change the courts of the presidential elections in Georgia,” he continued.

“Fulton County has not been properly audited for vote or signature verification,” Trump asserted. “They only looked at areas of the State where there most likely would be few problems, and even there they found large numbers of mistakes.”

He continued, “We are seeking to find and reveal the large-scale election fraud which took place in Georgia,” adding, “many residents agree, and their anger caused them not to turn out and vote for two Republican Senators in the January election.”

The former president then went after the mainstream media, writing:

“You will notice that establishment media errors, omissions, mistakes, and outright lies always slant one -way—against me and against Republicans. Meanwhile, stories that hurt Democrats or undermine their narratives are buried, ignored, or delayed until they can do the least harm—for example, after an election is over. Look no further than the negative coverage of the vaccine that preceded the election and the overdue celebration of the vaccine once the election had concluded. A strong democracy requires a fair and honest press. This latest media travesty underscores that legacy media outlets should be regarded as political entities—not journalistic enterprises.”

Trump concluded his message be writing, “In any event, I thank the Washington Post for the correction.”

Anything else?

The Washington Examiner‘s Becket Adams wrote in a commentary piece Monday, “If you can believe it, the Washington Post’s dud of a ‘bombshell’ isn’t even the most scandalous thing about this episode in media malfeasance. No, the most scandalous thing is: Several newsrooms claimed they independently ‘confirmed’ the original ‘scoop’ with anonymous sources of their own.”

Adams went on to cite NBC News, USA Today, ABC News, CNN, and PBS NewsHour as claiming to “confirm” the now-corrected Post story “through their own anonymous sources.”

correction Donald Trump Find the fraud Georgia elections Intelwars Media Bias phone call Source Washington Post

Washington Post blasted after admitting Trump never said ‘find the fraud’ to Georgia elections investigator as it reported in bombshell story

The Washington Post is getting hammered on social media over its recent correction admitting that former President Donald Trump never urged a Georgia elections investigator to “find the fraud” in a phone call over general election ballot impropriety allegations in the state.

What are the details?

The Post placed the following correction above its story, originally published in early January:

Correction: Two months after publication of this story, the Georgia secretary of state released an audio recording of President Donald Trump’s December phone call with the state’s top elections investigator. The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call, based on information provided by a source. Trump did not tell the investigator to “find the fraud” or say she would be “a national hero” if she did so. Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, Ga., asserting she would find “dishonesty” there. He also told her that she had “the most important job in the country right now.” A story about the recording can be found here. The headline and text of this story have been corrected to remove quotes misattributed to Trump.

The Wall Street Journal reported last week on audio of the Dec. 23 call between Trump and investigator Frances Watson, noting that the Post reported on the call in January but that this was the first time the recording had been released.

The Post, in its story about the recording, said Georgia officials indicated they didn’t believe a recording existed. But the Post said officials found the recording on a trash folder on Watson’s device while responding to a public records request — and that tidbit came courtesy of “a person familiar with the situation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the internal process.”

The whip comes down

Alex Thompson, Politico’s White House reporter, characterized the Post’s errors as “real bad” and noted that “this quote was and still is everywhere”:

Thompson added that CNN issued “a sorta vague ‘editor’s note.’ The Wapo correction was much more comprehensive”:

The Daily Beast acknowledged that the Post “quietly” corrected its story, while a number of other media watchers were taken aback — to put it mildly — by the Post getting such crucial details wrong:

Significantly, Democrats used the two false quotes attributed to Trump in their impeachment proceedings:

David Shafer, chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, called out the Post’s “false reporting”:

american resuce plan democrat distrust Washington divison Donald Trump experts Federal Reserve government is slavery Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden party lines political atheist puppets repulican ruing class stimulus is a scam system wake up Wealth

BIDEN FULLY DELETES TRUMP!

This article was originally published by The Wealth Research Group.

Source: USNews

I just heard Joe Biden speak twice over this past week, but have not seen any commentary on the significance of his words in both the mainstream and the alternative media, so it is imperative that we study it ourselves. In my opinion, the gravity and weight his message will have on Americans and probably the world are grossly misunderstood and underappreciated.

I’m not an American, but most of my material interests (businesses, income, investments, and assets) are concentrated in the United States, where the world’s most appreciated classic value investor, Mr. Warren Buffett, says the mother of all opportunity exists.

We keep hearing, day in and day out, week after week, every single year, for decades on end, that America is where anyone can live the dream.

That’s false, and it’s a dangerous mantra to repeat. America’s system isn’t built to create rags-to-riches stories anymore, as it was in the Industrial Revolution of the 1890s (Edison, Ford, Carnegie, Rockefeller, Bridgestone, and others) or in the 1950s, after the generation of the Great Depression came back from Europe and began America’s baby boom. Today, it’s a complicated place to escape physical poverty.

Since the global economy is re-opening, after the worst shock to it in modern history, Biden’s speeches have caused us to think long and hard about which America the world is waking up to.

Here are some of the questions I’m thinking deeply about:

  1. How is Biden’s administration going to pivot away from previous presidencies and policies?
  2. What were the damages that the 2020 healthcare crisis inflicted upon the general population and how will the government address it?
  3. How should I personally change my action planhttps://www.wealthresearchgroup.com/me, my strategies, and my execution?

Each of these holds within it many (probably dozens) small questions, which my partners and mastermind allies are talking through.

Courtesy: U.S. Global Investors

 

The largest item on this massive American Rescue Plan is you, the individual. In 2008, you got nothing. In 2020 and in 2021, you got direct payments.

Biden’s speech deleted the legacy of many former presidents, perhaps going back fifty or sixty years. He canceled the notion of the trickle-down effect, which maintains that by lowering taxes and freeing up capital, entrepreneurs and wealthy institutions will automatically elect to deploy those disposable funds in the domestic real economy, helping the backbone of the country, its middle class, and lower echelons to come up in the world.

He basically said that the trickle-down effect theory has failed and that, and this is a direct quote, “This time, it’s time that we build an economy that grows from the bottom up and the middle out — (applause) — the middle out. And this bill shows that when you do that, everybody does better. The wealthy do better. Everybody does better across the board.”

One of my core principles in life is to try to understand people and where they’re coming from. I think of what makes people do what they do and when I think about Biden’s administration, I contend that they have picked up on the fact that Americans want two things more than anything else, and you’ll hear Biden’s team repeat these two things over and over again:

  1. Americans want the truth/accountability.
  2. Americans want inclusiveness in the bounties of the system.

Biden is capitalizing upon the deep distrust in Washington, in order to prove that the government can function.

You may be a die-hard Trump supporter, simply a Republican, a Democrat, or a political atheist; it doesn’t matter to me. My value is in showing you what you can learn from what’s going on.

In his speech, Biden canceled several sacred cows and I will be publishing specific information on how this impacts us. These will focus upon (1) the ability to go from rags-to-riches now, (2) states that are worth considering moving to, (3) professions that are worth looking into, (4) books that you should {must} read, (5) investment opportunities and (6) additional insights.

Biden administration Border crisis Climate Change Donald Trump illegal aliens Illegal Immigration immigration Intelwars Nancy Pelosi

Pelosi blames border crisis on Trump and climate change

Democrats are scrambling following the massive surge of illegal immigrants and unaccompanied minors at the United States southern border. In the past week, there have been eye-opening reports about President Joe Biden’s migrant facilities, including children purportedly going days without showers or sunlight, populations at the detainment centers “akin to jail” at 729%, minors being denied access to communication to family members, and immigration lawyers being denied access to facilities.

The border crisis became so overwhelming that on Saturday, the Biden administration announced it was sending the Federal Emergency Management Agency to the border to assist with the record number of unaccompanied minors attempting to enter the U.S.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) acknowledged on Sunday that there is a “humanitarian challenge” at the border, but blamed former President Donald Trump and climate change for the overflow of illegal immigration.

“The facts of these, there are more children, about 600, 700 more children, unaccompanied children coming over the border,” Pelosi said on ABC News’ “This Week.” “This is a humanitarian challenge to all of us.”

Pelosi then pivoted to blaming Trump for the surge in illegal immigrants.

“What the administration has inherited is a broken system at the border, and they are working to correct that in the children’s interest,” Pelosi told host George Stephanopoulos. “I’m so pleased that the president, as a temporary measure, has sent FEMA to the border in order to help facilitate the children going from one — the 72-hour issue into where they are cared for as they are transferred into family homes or homes that are safe for them to be.”

Pelosi again passed the blame to the Trump administration by saying, “So this, again, is a transition for what was wrong before to what is right.”

“Of course, we have to also look to Central America, Mexico and the rest. The corruption, the violence, all of that’s so bad,” Pelosi briefly admitted, but then elaborated on what she considered a real culprit for the border crisis — climate change.

“My most recent trip to the Northern Triangle, that would be Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, you saw the impact of the climate change, mind you,” she claimed. “These people were leaving because of the drought. They couldn’t farm and they were seeking other ways to survive.”

There are others who believe that Biden’s lax immigration policies are causing a crisis at the border.

On Sunday morning, Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), blamed Biden completely for the situation at the border.

“Empirically it is entirely. You can’t help but notice that the administration changes and there is a surge,” Cassidy told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace. “When they think they can get in they begin sending their unaccompanied child on a train ride across Mexico where she may be kidnapped and trafficked, on the hope that they’re going to be waved through at the border.”

Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) told Axios earlier this month, “You just can’t say, ‘Yeah, yeah, let everybody in’ — because then we’re affected down there at the border. The bad guys know how to market this.”

Last week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) proclaimed that he was deploying the National Guard to the U.S.-Mexico border to address the border crisis.

“The crisis at our southern border continues to escalate because of Biden Administration policies that refuse to secure the border and invite illegal immigration,” Abbott said.

Last March on the campaign trail, Biden announced to the world that he would end deportations if he was elected, “In the first 100 days of my administration — no one — no one will be deported at all. From that point on, the only deportations that will take place are commissions of felonies in the United States of America.”

In January, a migrant rights group issued a statement on behalf of the people participating in a caravan to the United States that demanded the Biden administration “honor its commitments.”

“We recognize the importance of the incoming Government of the United States having shown a strong commitment to migrants and asylum seekers, which presents an opportunity for the governments of Mexico and Central America to develop policies and a migration management that respect and promote the human rights of the population in mobility,” the statement from Pueblo Sin Fronteras read. “We will advocate that the Biden government honors its commitments.”

Don hilton Donald Trump hatch act Intelwars MAGA Maga flag New York

Federal authorities investigate New York sheriff who flew pro-Trump flag while on patrol

Federal investigators issued an official warning to a New York sheriff after a complaint was lodged against him for flying a pro-Trump flag on his patrol boat last summer.

What happened?

While patrolling Oneida Lake during a “Flotilla for Trump” rally last August, Oswego County Sheriff Don Hilton said he proceeded to fly a “Making America Great Again” flag that a rally participant gave him, Syracuse.com reported.

Hilton later admitted he permitted the flag, which had Donald Trump’s image emblazoned on it, to be flown from the government-owned patrol boat because Trump “has supported law enforcement at a time when many groups are unjustly vilifying our profession.”

The incident polarized Oswego County, and many residents publicly spoke out against Hilton.

What did the federal investigator say?

The complaint alleged Hilton had violated the Hatch Act by flying the pro-Trump flag.

More from the Palladium-Times:

The Hatch Act is a federal law passed in 1939 that limits certain political activities of federal employees, in addition to some state and local government employees who work in connection with federally funded programs, according to [the U.S. Office of Special Counsel]. The Hatch Act is aimed at protecting the public workforce from partisan political influence and ensuring the nonpartisan administration of laws.

The OSC said Hilton and the Oswego County Sheriff’s Office are subject to the Hatch Act because the department receives federal funding for certain activities and is therefore covered by the law.

In a letter, the U.S. Office of Special Counsel said that Hilton would face disciplinary action if he engages in overt political action again that violates the Hatch Act.

“Please be advised that if you engage in any future prohibited political activity while employed in a Hatch Act-covered position, OSC would consider such activity to be a willful and knowing violation of the law that could result in disciplinary action,” Erica Hamrick, the deputy chief of the Hatch Act Unit, said.

How did Hilton respond?

Hilton told his local government leaders that he would not violate the Hatch Act again.

“I have reassured the chairman and other members of the Legislature that it will not occur again,” he said, the Palladium-Times reported.

Still, Hilton said last year the incident has inspired him to “be even more vocal about the unjust and hypocritical criticism of police by anti-democracy groups and certain politicians who pander to them.”

“I will do so on my own time, on my own dime… and as loudly as I can!” Hilton promised.

“I respect the right of people to have a critical opinion of what I did — this is America after all, and freedom of speech is part of what the flag stands for. But let’s keep a clear-headed perspective here: I flew a political flag on taxpayers’ property, yet many of the people criticizing me for that also defend rioters who destroy taxpayers’ property!” Hilton went on to say.

“Is it a sign of people thinking reasonably when they support policies that excuse and set free those who commit criminal acts of violence and assault, while at the same time call for the termination of me and my Deputies simply for flying a flag? It is not,” Hilton added.

Berea college Bible Christian college Donald Trump Intelwars Left-wing college Make America Great Again White citizenship as terrorism White People

College founded to ‘promote the cause of Christ’ defends hosting ‘White Citizenship as Terrorism’ event

Berea College — a private liberal arts college in Kentucky that says it’s “still firmly rooted in its historic purpose,” which is “to promote the cause of Christ” — is hosting an event next Wednesday titled, “White Citizenship as Terrorism: Make America Great Again, Again.”

What are the details?

The event — sponsored by the Women’s and Gender Non-Conforming Center at Berea — will feature a Zoom presentation from Amy Brandzel.

The latter notice regarding the event reads:

“Despite the calls for multiculturalism, the presentation and color-blindness, segments of white America mourn their so-called loss of privilege, consistently begging to return to the nostalgic past in which their esteemed value as white citizens went unquestioned. Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ appears to follow suit by offering a seemingly benign promise to return America to a previously ‘great’ past. But the offer to ‘Make America Great Again, Again,’ requires we refocus on how the last four years of daily tweets and administrative actions redefine whiteness. If terrorism is defined as the use of violence and threats to create a state of fear towards [sic] particular communities and identities, then this is what ‘Trumpism’ is at its core. The talk offers to resuscitate Trumpism and white citizenship as forms of white terrorism enacted against the majority of people living within the borders of the U.S. and beyond.”

It wasn’t immediately apparent that Berea College or the campus organization sponsoring the event described who Brandzel is, but the Federalist noted she’s an assistant professor of women studies at the University of New Mexico and author of “Against Citizenship: The Violence of the Normative.”

The outlet added that Brandzel’s book proposes that “citizenship is a violent dehumanizing mechanism that makes the comparative devaluing of human lives see,” and that “citizenship requires anti-intersectionality, that is, strategies that deny the mutuality and contingency of race, class, gender, sexuality and nation…”

Pushback and a defense

After word got out regarding the “White Citizenship as Terrorism” event and some pushback was felt, Berea College posted a statement defending the event. The school also quoted its motto — “God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth” — which is based on Acts 17:26:

“A planned event by the Women’s and Gender Non-Conforming Center at Berea College has attracted a great deal of attention on social media, and resulted in several emails from concerned persons. To some, the provocative title of the event implies that Berea is not a welcoming place for individuals with differing political views. That is not true. At Berea, we strive to live out our motto: God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth. Berea accepts students of all faiths (or none at all), religious beliefs, ethnicities and political leanings, creating a diverse environment that encourages acceptance, respect and even appreciation across our differences.

“We encourage open dialog on difficult topics. Racism and white nationalism have been topics of great debate over the past five years. The event planned for next week seeks to confront aspects of the political spectrum that relate to the difficult topic of race in America. While that may cause discomfort, it is a valid and important conversation in this time of political and racial division. It is our hope that these types of conversations will occur across the country. Open, honest dialogue is essential to understanding racism and moving toward an anti-racist society.”

The Women’s and Gender Non-Conforming Center issued a statement, as well:

“We are grateful to President Lyle Roelofs, Interim Provosts Scott Steele and Steve Gowler, Dean Matthew Saderholm, Associate Vice President for Marketing and Communications Kim Brown, and Director of Publications and Media Relations Abbie Darst for this statement in support of our Gender Talk next week about the white terrorism that claims to make America great again (again). Be sure to tune in!”

Anything else?

Berea College notes on its website that it was “founded by ardent abolitionists and radical reformers” and wants staff and students to “work toward both personal goals and a vision of a world shaped by Christian values, such as the power of love over hate, human dignity and equality, and peace with justice.”

The school’s website also stated that it “stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and those peacefully demonstrating against police brutality across the country and around the world. As the first interracial and coeducational college in the slaveholding South in 1855, this moment calls for our support. Our history and our commitments demand it.”

2022 midterms Alaska Donald Trump Intelwars Lisa Murkowski Midterms Mitch McConnell Trump kingmaker

Trump vows to campaign against ‘disloyal’ Sen. Lisa Murkowski in Alaska

Former President Donald Trump pledged to travel to Alaska next year to campaign against Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R) when she will be running for re-election. Trump issued the statement about his potential role in the 2022 mid-terms to Politico on Saturday.

“I will not be endorsing, under any circumstances, the failed candidate from the great State of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski,” Trump said. “She represents her state badly and her country even worse. I do not know where other people will be next year, but I know where I will be — in Alaska campaigning against a disloyal and very bad Senator.”

Trump’s statement arrives only days after Murkowski voted to confirm Deb Haaland, President Joe Biden’s nominee for Interior Secretary.

“Her vote to advance radical left democrat Deb Haaland for Secretary of the Interior is yet another example of Murkowski not standing up for Alaska,” Trump added.

Murkowski, who has been a vocal critic of Trump and his policies, was one of seven Republican senators who voted to convict Trump in his second impeachment trial last month. She is also the only one up for re-election in 2022.

During his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference last Sunday, Trump credited Democrats for their commitment to “always stick together.” He said that Republicans who opposed him were “grandstanders” and “Republicans in name only,” or “RINOs.”

“The Democrats don’t have grandstanders like Mitt Romney, little Ben Sasse, Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Pat Toomey, and in the house, Tom Rice, South Carolina, Adam Kinzinger, Dan Newhouse, Anthony Gonzalez,” Trump said during his CPAC speech. “Fred Upton, Jaime Herrera Beutler, Peter Meyer, John Katko, David Valadao. And of course the warmonger, a person that loves seeing our troops fighting, Liz Cheney.”

Of the list of fellow Republicans that Trump may try to oust, he said, “Get rid of them all.”

Murkowski, who first became a senator representing Alaska in 2002, has been challenged by fellow Republicans in the past. In 2010, she lost the Republican nomination and the GOP’s support, but went on to win the election as a write-in candidate.

Despite Trump vowing to campaign against Murkowski, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is committed to supporting the Alaskan senator. When asked by CNN if he’ll support Murkowski in her re-election bid in the midterms, he said, “Absolutely.” McConnell said he wasn’t worried about Trump’s influence to try to unseat Murkowski.

Antifa BLM Donald Trump Intelwars Protests Trump 2024 Trump new york Trump parade

Parade of Trump supporters and counter-protesters clash in NYC; weapons seized, police officer hospitalized

Supporters of former President Donald Trump held a parade in New York City on Friday, but were met by counter-protesters. The event featured the unfurling of a 50-foot “Trump 2024” flag, and a march from Trump Tower to Times Square, but tensions flared after a counter-protest was staged.

A large crowd of Trump supporters marched down Fifth Avenue and carried Gadsden and thin blue line flags as well as large banners, including one showing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi depicted as being evil while ripping up a copy of Trump’s 2020 State of the Union speech.

As the Trump supporters made their way to Times Square, NYPD officers attempted to keep counter-protesters at bay. However, there were several tense exchanges and multiple arrests.

Video journalist Ford Fischer from News 2 Share shared footage from the event, including the moment where a counter-protester confronted a group with “Asians for Trump” signs. The counter-protester gets in the face of one Trump supporter and screams, “Fight me, Fight me then!”

(Content Warning: Explicit language):

“As the rally rounded into the pedestrian plaza on Broadway and 42nd street, the group stopped and several counter-protesters began yelling that someone had a knife,” Freedom News TV reported.

Video journalist Oliya Scootercaster of Freedom News TV shared footage of the Trump parade, including the arrests of several counter-protesters. As NYPD arrests one counter-protester, police officers find a hammer hidden in his jacket. The man said the hammer was for “protection.”

NYPD confiscated multiple weapons during the event, including brass knuckles and a knife. NYPD said one police officer was taken to the hospital after a liquid, which was believed to be bleach, was thrown into his eyes.

“Four arrests were made for various crimes, including assaults on police officers and weapons possession,” NYPD announced on Twitter. “Violent actions will not be tolerated from those who claim to be ‘peaceful protestors.'”

The parade was to show support for Trump running for president in the 2024 election. Last Sunday, Trump made his first public appearance since Inauguration Day at the Conservative Political Action Conference. Trump hinted that he may run for president in 2024.

“But who knows, I may even decide to beat them for a third time,” Trump said, which made the CPAC crowd cheer loudly.

Capitol riot lawsuit Capitol riots Donald Trump Donald Trump Jr. Eric Swalwell Intelwars Mo Brooks Rudy guiliani Swalwell lawsuit Trump lawsuit

Eric Swalwell sues Trump and allies over Capitol riot, says he’s suffering from ‘severe emotional distress’

Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell of California is suing former President Donald Trump and his allies over the Capitol riot. Swalwell claims that the unrest in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6 caused him to suffer from “severe emotional distress.”

The civil lawsuit, filed Thursday in federal court in Washington, alleges that Trump and his allies are “responsible for the injury and destruction” from the riot at the U.S. Capitol. The suit targets Trump, his personal attorney Rudy Guiliani, Donald Trump Jr., and Republican Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama for their alleged roles in January’s violence at the Capitol.

“Donald Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr., his advisor Rudy Giuliani, and Congressman Mo Brooks, together with many others, defiled that sacrament through a campaign of lies and incendiary rhetoric, which led to the sacking of the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021,” the lawsuit reads.

The 65-page complaint claims that the defendants engaged in “conspiracy to violate civil rights,” “neglect to prevent interference with civil rights,” “incitement to riot,” “inciting assault,” “disorderly conduct,” and “terrorism.”

“In claiming for weeks that President Biden’s victory was in fact the largest act of fraud in American history; in seeing that some of Trump’s supporters were willing to engage in violence in response to such claims; and in using highly inflammatory language in repeating the false claims of fraud at the rally before sending the crowd to the Capitol, the Defendants at a minimum acted negligently,” the complaint alleges.

The suit alleges that the defendants “by force, intimidation, or threat, agreed and conspired among themselves and with others to prevent members of Congress, including the Plaintiff, and Vice President Mike Pence from counting the Electoral College Votes and certifying President Biden and Vice President Harris as the winners of the 2020 presidential election.”

The lawsuit also sues all four defendants for “infliction of emotional distress” over the Capitol riot.

“Defendants intentionally, or at a minimum recklessly, caused the severe emotional distress suffered by the Plaintiff in connection with the January 6 attack,” the complaint states. “Defendants are furthermore vicariously liable for, and aided and abetted, the rioters’ negligent infliction of emotional distress upon the Plaintiff.”

The lawsuit claims that Swalwell “took off his jacket and tie” to prepare to engage in a physical altercation against the crowd who had infiltrated the Capitol building.

“The Plaintiff prepared himself for possible hand-to-hand combat as he took off his jacket and tie and searched for makeshift instruments of self-defense,” the lawsuit claims. “He listened in shock as the House Chaplain — a veteran of war herself — began praying for the members from the Rostrum. As the Plaintiff watched this horror unfold, he texted with his wife in what he felt could be his last moments, telling her ‘I love you very much. And our babies.'”

The lawsuit seeks monetary damages against the defendants, including punitive damages.

Trump spokesman Jason Miller told Reuters that Swalwell “is a low-life with no credibility.”

Swalwell served as one of the impeachment managers prosecuting Trump, who argued that the former president incited violence at the Capitol on Jan. 6. The Senate voted to acquit Trump on Feb. 13.

Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, filed a lawsuit last month against Trump, Giuliani, the Proud Boys, and Oath Keepers over for allegedly conspiring to incite the Capitol riots.

Cpac trump speech Donald Trump Intelwars Karl rove vs trump Trump and republican party Trump vs karl rove Trump vs republicans

Trump drops a blistering response to Karl Rove’s scathing criticism of his CPAC speech

Former President Donald Trump released a fiery statement excoriating Republican strategist Karl Rove after Rove penned a scathing criticism of Trump’s speech at CPAC.

Trump called on Fox News to fire Rove and exhorted the Republican party to drop him.

“Karl Rove has been losing for years, except for himself. He’s a RINO of the highest order, who came to the Oval Office lobbying for 5G for him and a group. After a lengthy discussion with Rove and Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, I said no, they’re not qualified. Our Nation can do much better!” said the former president.

“Karl Rove’s voice on Fox is always negative for those who know how to win. He certainly hasn’t helped Fox in the ratings department, has he?” Trump added.

“He’s a pompous fool with bad advice and always has an agenda. He ran the campaign for two Senators in Georgia, and did a rotten job with bad ads and concepts. Should have been an easy win, but he and his friend Mitch blew it with their $600 vs. $2,000 proposal,” he continued.

Trump went on to claim that the election was fraudulent and that Republicans would have lost seats in the House of Representatives and fared even worse in the Senate if it weren’t for him.

The statement was meant to refute the arguments Rove made in an op-ed at the Wall Street Journal. Rove noted that the former president got explosive applause at the conference, but that only 68% of the attendees wanted him to run for president again.

Supporters want him to offer a forward-looking vision, but he won’t. Some view his declarations of civil war on Republicans as counterproductive and claims of political power hollow. And his repeated cries of stolen elections are causing some supporters to abandon politics altogether and others to doubt his claims.

Elements of Mr. Trump’s speech were fine. But true to form, the former president did it his way. The speech’s divisive, controversial and embittered parts dominated the coverage. He might be pleased by that, but shouldn’t be. Republicans shouldn’t be either.

The former president has been much more vocal about politics since his speech at CPAC. Earlier on Thursday he released a separate statement excoriating the Wall Street Journal editorial board for calling on Republicans to drop him over the failures of the congressional elections.

Here’s more about Trump’s CPAC speech:

Cancel culture Donald Trump Dr. Seuss Intelwars jimmy kimmel Racism accusation reelection watch

‘This is how Trump gets re-elected’: Jimmy Kimmel roasts leftist cancel culture that led to takedown of Dr. Seuss books

Late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel skewered left-wing cancel culture that led to six Dr. Seuss books going out of print — on the birthday of the iconic children’s book author, no less — following accusations that a handful of his imaginary characters are based on racist stereotypes.

What did Kimmel say?

Kimmel hit back on Tuesday’s program with a number of jabs, primarily by riffing that “not only are they pulling some of the books out of print, they’re also tweaking some of the books that are in print to make them more inclusive.”

With that, updated book covers and titles flashed upon the screen as he narrated:

  • “For instance, we now have, ‘The Cat in the Problematic Headdress'”
  • “How the Grinch Appropriated Native American Culture!”
  • “Hop on Pop (With His Consent)”
  • “Horton Hears a They”
  • “Horton Hears a Misogynist Joke (and Reports it to HR)”
  • “There’s a Wocket in My Ethically-Sourced, Sustainable Pocket”
  • “No Eggs or Ham,” after which Kimmel quipped, “that’s a vegan thing, I guess”
  • “And, “Yertle the Gender Fluid Turtle and Other Stories”

“This is how [former President Donald] Trump gets re-elected, by the way,” he concluded. “Cancel Dr. Seuss, cancel Abe Lincoln, melt down Mr. Potato Head’s private parts, and throw them at the Muppets. This is his path to victory the next time around.”


Cuomo Controversy, Dr. Seuss Cancelled & Antifa Capitol Riot Lies

youtu.be

Anything else?

The Dr. Seuss titles that were discontinued are “If I Ran the Zoo,” “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” “McElligot’s Pool,” “On Beyond Zebra!,” “Scrambled Eggs Super!” and “The Cat’s Quizzer.”

Dr. Seuss Enterprises’ statement on the matter said “these books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong” and that “ceasing sales of these books is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr. Seuss Enterprises’s [sic] catalog represents and supports all communities and families.”

Still, Dr. Seuss’s stepdaughter Lark Grey Dimond-Cates told Fox Business she hopes the publishing house will eventually start reprinting the books “because his body of work is unique.”

The groundswell against some of Dr. Seuss’ characters has been growing for a while. A study published in 2019 that examined “orientalism, anti-blackness, and white supremacy” in his books purportedly found that 43 out of the 45 characters of color are either stereotypical or otherwise offensive.

Yet as soon as the news hit that the aforementioned books were going out of print, their resale prices skyrocketed on eBay and Amazon.

Budget Deficit Donald Trump federal funding Federal Reserve government spending Intelwars National Debt

National Debt Blows Past $28 Trillion

On March 1, the U.S. national debt eclipsed $28 trillion with no end to the borrowing and spending in sight.

It was just last fall that the debt surged above $27 trillion for the first time. In less than five months, Uncle Sam added another $1 trillion to its debt load. And there’s barely been a peep from the mainstream media.

Before you start blaming Joe Biden – and his time will come – understand that this is Donald Trump’s legacy.

When Trump took office in January 2017, the national debt stood at $19.95 trillion.  It topped $22 trillion in February 2019. That represented a $2.06 trillion increase in the debt in just over two years. By November 2019, the debt had eclipsed $23 trillion. That was before the coronavirus pandemic put borrowing and spending on hyperdrive. Less than 18 months later, the U.S. government has blown the debt up by another $5 trillion.

In just one four-year term, the Trump administration swelled the national debt by nearly $8 trillion. It took the Obama administration eight years to do the same.

Granted, it’s not fair to pin government spending solely on the back of a president. Congress ultimately passes the spending bills. But the president plays a significant role in setting budget priorities and he always has veto power. Trump never even played lip-service to reining in spending. And you should remember that on the campaign trail,  Trump promised to deal with the skyrocketing national debt. In fact, he said he could take care of it “fairly quickly.”

This isn’t to let Biden off the hook. He will undoubtedly continue the spending binge and likely increase it. Congress already appears set to pass another $1.9 trillion stimulus bill and there is talk of an infrastructure bill after that.

Even without stimulus, the spending appears to be accelerating. The U.S. government ran a $735.73 billion budget deficit in just the first four months of fiscal 2021. To put that into perspective, that is slightly higher than the 2014 deficit and would rank in the top-10 highest deficits ever run. This doesn’t reflect the likelihood of news stimulus and government spending coming down the pike with Biden at the helm.

To add a little perspective to the massive U.S. debt, if the Treasury Department billed every U.S. citizen for their share, your bill would be $84,827. And every taxpayer would have to fork out $223,000 to settle the national debt.

Despite the lack of concern in the mainstream, debt has consequences. Studies have shown that a debt to GDP ratio of over 90 percent retards economic growth by about 30 percent. The debt-to-GDP ratio currently stands at 129.72 percent, according to the National Debt Clock. This throws cold water on the conventional “spend now, worry about the debt later” mantra, along with the frequent claim that “we can grow ourselves out of the debt” now popular on both sides of the aisle in DC.

According to a CBO report last fall, on the current trajectory, the size of the national debt will be nearly double the size of the U.S. economy by 2050.

There is another player in this saga that doesn’t get enough attention – the Federal Reserve. It is the engine that powers the biggest government in the history of the world.

The Federal Reserve makes all of this borrowing and spending possible by backstopping the bond market and monetizing the debt. The central bank buys U.S. Treasuries on the open market with money created out of thin air (debt monetization). This creates artificial demand for bonds and keeps interest rates low. All of this new money gets injected into the economy, driving inflation higher. The Fed expanded the money supply by record amounts in 2020.

The Federal Reserve now holds $4.7 trillion in U.S. government bonds, a record 17.5 percent of all U.S. debt. The Fed’s share of the U.S. debt load exploded from 9.3 percent in Q1 2020 to its current level.

Currently, the average American doesn’t really feel the impact of federal spending. Taxes remain low (relatively speaking). The Treasury simply borrows the money and the central bank monetizes the debt. But borrowed money has to be paid back. You will pay the bill – whether through higher taxes down the road or the inflation tax inherent in the Fed’s debt-monetization scheme. And in reality – both.

The post National Debt Blows Past $28 Trillion first appeared on Tenth Amendment Center.

‘How do you fix it?’ – Steven Crowder speaks to Clark County Elections Office about voter rolls

Recently, TheBlaze.com reported, “Conservative comedian and BlazeTV host Steven Crowder claimed that an unknown person or group attempted to engage in a cover-up by altering public records to hide the fact that a former Hillary Clinton staffer — who has allegedly been missing for two years — voted illegally in Nevada during the 2020 election.”

Crowder made a phone call Wednesday to the Clark County Elections Office and spoke to Dan Cullen about known voter roll errors.

Crowder asked if Clark County had required voters to verify their identification before their voter information is updated. Crowder simply wanted to know if there is a process in place that ensures voter information is updated accurately.

“How do you fix it? This is a person who voted from an address that does not exist,” Crowder asked.

Cullen eventually admitted that there is no law in place that can guarantee voter information is accurate.

Barack Obama bombing killing de-escalation Donald Trump escalation Headline News impeachable offense Intelwars IRAQ Joe Biden liars LIES MIDDLE EAST military strike obey orders order followers of the state Politicians Soldiers SYRIA United States War war hawks war mogering war mongers Washington D.C.

Biden’s Syria Attack: An Actual Impeachable Offense

This article was originally published by Ron Paul at The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. 

Last Thursday President Biden continued what has sadly become a Washington tradition: bombing Syria. The President ordered a military strike near the Iraqi-Syrian border that killed at least 22 people. The Administration claims it struck an “Iranian-backed” militia in retaliation for recent rocket attacks on US installations in Iraq.

As with Presidents Obama and Trump before him, however, Biden’s justification for the US strike and its targets is not credible. And his claim that the US attack would result in a “de-escalation” in the region is laughable. You cannot bomb your way toward de-escalation.

Biden thus joins a shameful club of US leaders whose interventions in the Middle East, and Syria specifically, have achieved nothing in the US interest but have contributed to the deaths of many thousands of civilians.

President Trump attacked Syria in 2018 in what he claimed was retaliation for the Assad government’s use of chemical weapons against its own citizens. The Trump Administration never proved its claim. Logic itself suggests how ridiculous it would have been for the Syrian president to have used chemical weapons in that situation, where they achieved no military purpose and would almost certainly guarantee further outside attacks against his government.

Trump’s 2018 attack only added to the misery of the Syrian people, who suffered under US sanctions and then suffered President Obama’s “Assad must go” intervention that trained and armed al-Qaeda affiliated groups to overthrow the government.

Trump’s airstrike on Syria did nothing to further real American interests in the region. But sending in 100 Tomahawk missiles to blow up a few empty buildings did a great deal to further the bottom line of missile-maker Raytheon.

Interestingly, Biden’s Secretary of Defense came to the Administration straight from his previous position on the board of, you guessed it, Raytheon. Libertarian educator Tom Woods once quipped that no matter who you vote for you get John McCain. Perhaps it’s also fair to say that no matter who you vote for you get to enrich Raytheon.

The Democrats wasted four years trying to remove Trump from office under the bogus “Russiagate” lie and then the equally ridiculous and discredited claim that Trump led an insurrection against the government on January 6th. Yet when Trump started raining bombs down on Syria with no Congressional declaration of war or even authorization, most Democrats stood up and cheered. Left-wing CNN talking head Fareed Zakaria swooned, “I think Donald Trump became president of the United States last night.”

In fact, initiating a war against a country that did not attack and does not threaten the United States without Congressional authority is an impeachable offense. But both parties – with a few exceptions – are war parties.

President Biden should be impeached for his attack on Syria, as should have Trump and Obama before him. But no one in Washington is going to pursue impeachment charges against a president who recklessly takes the United States to war. War greases Washington’s wheels.

Isn’t it strange how we’ve heard nothing about ISIS for the past couple of years, but suddenly the mainstream media tells us the ISIS is back and on the march? When President Biden says “America is back,” what he really means is “the war party is back.” As if they ever left.

BOYCOTT CPAC Donald Trump Goya Intelwars Robert unanue

Goya CEO tells CPAC Trump is ‘the real, the legitimate, and still the actual president.’ Now his company faces renewed calls for boycott.

Goya Foods’ pro-Trump CEO, Robert Unanue, is no stranger to controversy over his political views.

In January, the board of the Hispanic foods company voted to censure Unanue, a longtime, vocal advocate for former President Donald Trump, over controversial remarks he made following the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, including questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election.

Last summer, Goya faced calls for a boycott after Unanue praised Trump during a Rose Garden roundtable discussion among Hispanic leaders.

So it likely came as no surprise that, as the Washington Post reported, anti-Trump forces are again calling for a Goya boycott following Unanue’s speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference over the weekend.

What did Unanue say now?

The businessman took the CPAC stage Sunday to again align himself with President Trump’s and his supporters’ ongoing allegations that the 2020 election was stolen through massive voter fraud.

Shortly after being introduced, Unanue thanked the crowd and told the audience it was an honor just to be on the same stage the former president would be using later that day for a massive keynote speech, calling the Trump the “real” and “legitimate” president.

“It’s just an honor to be here. But my biggest honor today is gonna be that ? I think we’re gonna be on the same stage ? as, in my opinion, the real, the legitimate, and the still-actual president of the United States, Donald J. Trump,” Unanue said to the CPAC crowd that responded with a roar of applause.

Knowing the blowback he would receive for such a statement, Unanue immediately followed that with a dig at the Twitterverse, which was bound to attack him for his statement, considering what critics on social media did in January when they pressured Goya’s board to punish him for his political views.

“Sorry, Twitter. I’ve already been canceled,” he said. “You can’t do it again.”

Unanue went on to say that conservatives “still have faith that the majority of the people of the United States voted for” Trump and followed that with accusations that the Senate runoff elections in Georgia were “not legitimate.”

The CEO’s statements, of course, riled up the left, reigniting their zeal to boycott Goya over his allegations.

For example, the Post noted, “The View” cohost Joy Behar tweeted, “No more chick peas from Goya for me,” in response to a story on Unanue’s speech.

Former CNN host Soledad O’Brien said, “Folks at Goya should be embarrassed by their CEO.”

Both Newsweek and the Huffington Post reported that they pressed Goya for a response on Unanue’s remarks and whether he had been given permission to speak. Goya Foods did not respond.

CPAC Donald Trump GOP Intelwars Liz Cheney Mitt Romney republican party RINO

Trump unloads on Republicans who supported his impeachment, reveals he will campaign to unseat them

Former President Donald Trump revealed Sunday how he plans to target those Republicans who supported his second impeachment.

When the House formally impeached Trump in January, charging him with “incitement of insurrection,” 10 House Republicans joined their Democratic colleagues in supporting the effort, including Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.), the No. 3 House Republican.

The trend continued at Trump’s Senate trial. Trump was acquitted because Senate ultimately fell short of the 67-vote threshold, but seven Republicans voted “guilty.”

What did Trump say?

Speaking at the Conservation Political Action Conference in Florida, Trump blasted his intraparty opponents and said he would actively campaign against them.

“I’m announcing that I will be actively working to elect strong, tough, and smart Republican leaders,” Trump said, to which the crowd responded with chants of “USA! USA! USA!”

In fact, Trump claimed that RINOs — an acronym meaning “Republicans In Name Only” — will “destroy the Republican Party and the American worker and will destroy our country itself.”

“Now more than ever is the time for tough, strong, and energetic Republican leaders who have spines of steel. We need strong leadership. We cannot have leaders who show more passion for condemning their fellow Americans than they have ever shown for standing up to Democrats, the media, and the radicals who want to turn America into a socialist country,” Trump said.

“Instead of attacking me and more importantly the voters of our movement, top establishment Republicans in Washington should be spending their energy in opposing Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, and the Democrats,” Trump declared.

Whom will Trump target?

The former president went on to name specifically which Republican politicians he will campaign against.

The Democrats don’t have grandstanders like Mitt Romney, little Ben Sasse, Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Pat Toomey, and in the House, Tom Rice [of] South Carolina, Adam Kinzinger, Dan Newhouse, Anthony Gonzalez. That’s another beauty. Fred Upton, Jaime Herrera Beutler, Peter Meyer, John Katko, David Valadao.

And of course the warmonger, a person that loves seeing our troops fighting, Liz Cheney. How about that? The good news is in her state, she’s been censured, and in her state, her poll numbers have dropped faster than any human being I’ve ever seen. So hopefully they’ll get rid of her with the next election.

“Get rid of them all,” Trump declared.

Anything else?

Despite Trump claiming the Republican Party is unified, the GOP currently could not be more divided between those who believe Trump should continue leading the party and those who want Trump gone.

The divide was illustrated during a press conference with GOP leadership last week.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) was asked whether Trump should be CPAC’s keynote speaker — in a speech that Trump planned to solidify his power hold over the GOP — to which McCarthy responded with resounding affirmation. “Yes, he should,” McCarthy said.

Then it was Cheney’s turn to answer.

“I don’t believe that he should be playing a role in the future of the party or the country,” Cheney said of Trump.

McCarthy responded by abruptly ending the press conference. “On that high note, thank you very much,” he said.
