THIS IS THE BEST ARTICLE ON HOW THE FEDERAL RESERVE MESSED UP OUR ECONOMY I'VE EVER SEEN If you only have a basic knowledge of how the Federal Reserve works, you need to read this article NOW. If you want a way more in depth knowledge of the Federal Reserve and how it came to be, this monster book will tell you everything you want to know. Just so you know, we are about to have to spend more on INTEREST payments than we spend on Medicare or the Department of Defense. I'm going deep on this tomorrow's show.
DARK BRANDON'S SPEECH GOT SOMEONE KILLED And it's hard to not think so when a 40 something year old man kills an 18 year old man by running him over in his SUV. Why did this happen? Because the 18 year old was a Republican and the killer decided he was a "right wing extremist". Just like our President said! Oddly no media outlets have rushed Biden to ask if he feels "responsible" for this act, like the left does to conservatives when anyone gets shot. This is the logical conclusion of the dehumanizing sort of rhetoric on display by our Commander in Chief in the most fascistic looking speech given by an American President. The killer is out on $50,000 bond after saying to the judge, "“I have a job, a life and a house and things I don’t exactly want to see, you know, go by the wayside—family that are very important to me,” he said, expressing no remorse for his victim’s family, but hey, according to Biden, “MAGA Republicans” are almost subhuman. The young man will never get to have a house, or a job or a family.
WE'VE GOT TWO FINALISTS FOR THE AURORA TOP COP JOB One from New Jersey and one from Albuquerque (I have never successfully spelled that city correctly right on the first try in my entire life). Read more about the gentlemen here, and there will be time for public input.
LOTS OF UNDECIDEDS UP FOR GRABS IN THE SENATE RACE A new poll done by Fox 31 shows Bennet with a ten point lead over Joe O'Dea in the Senate race, but the big news is that 15% of voters are undecided. That's a big deal and hopefully O'Dea can pull more of those voters to his camp. Heidi has an uphill battle for sure. Read the results of all the questions here.
HERE'S AN INTERESTING TAKE ON OIL AND GAS From Jamie Dimon from JPMorganChase on oil and gas.
THIS BRETT FAVRE STORY IS WILD And it definitely APPEARS as if Favre engaged in some shady business based on this reporting, but he has not been charged with anything so far. It involves a misuse of public funds taken from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program and funneled to a new volleyball gym at Southern Mississippi for Favre's daughter and her fellow volleyball players. But it gets worse. He could be in some trouble, we'll have to see what happens next.
HEY LOOK, MORE RED LIGHT CAMERAS MAY BE COMING As the entirely Democrat controlled Legislature tries to figure out how to take more of our money while lying to say it's going to make us safer. Expect more tickets in the mail soon unless Republicans make some serious gains in either body of the Legislature.
EVEN FAMOUS PEOPLE GET NERVOUS MEETING ROYALTY
THINGS ARE NOT GOING WELL IN SWEDEN and the reason you aren't hearing about the 500 BOMBINGS since 2019 is that they are overwhelmingly being committed by immigrants from the Middle East. Sweden has the highest gun murder rate in Europe and 85% of those crimes are committed by first generation or immigrants. Sweden took in more immigrants from the middle east in 2015 than any other European country and then refused to be honest about the crime and mass unemployment happening in those populations. Now they just put a right wing government into power because Swedes are sick of being held hostage by immigrants. Read the depressing story here, it is paywalled but it's worth it.
PAYPAL AND VENMO ARE SHUTTING DOWN ACCOUNTS OF CONSERVATIVES And I have to say I find this really, really annoying because I use both of these services. I should say USED to use because they will get none of my business from now on. They have shut down accounts of a parent group in the UK who fought to keep kids in schools, and now they shut down the account of Gays Against Groomers, which is an organization fighting against the sexualization and mutilation of children in the name of gay and transgender people. Watch this from Tucker for more.
THIS AS DILBERT IS GETTING DUMPED By one large media organization that dropped the comic from 77 papers. Why? Maybe because Dilbert has been openly mocking woke culture in the workplace lately?
FAUCI ADMITS LOCKDOWNS WERE HIS FAULT AFTER DENYING HE SHUT ANYTHING DOWN This story made me SUPER mad today. In it, we see Dr. Fauci at a Fauci Worship Conference put on by The Atlantic, so he knows he's among friends. I guess he felt free to admit that the lockdowns were not only his idea, he KNEW the damage they would do to children, but he did them anyway. From the NYPost.com article:
He then justified his harsh COVID guidance, including pushing the federal government to mandate lockdowns, masking, and later, vaccination, because hospitals were being “overrun.”
He continued, “And sometimes when you do draconian things, it has collateral negative consequences, just like when you shut things down, even temporarily, it does have deleterious consequences on the economy, on the schoolchildren. You know that.”
Fauci confirmed he risked these harms, adding, “But you have to make a balance when you’re dealing with — we know the only way to stop something cold in its track is to try and shut things down.”
Remember he said this?
What's super funny is that he also complained in the article that social media was the problem during covid. Read this quote:
“When you have a divisiveness in society where every time you say something, you have X number of people with social media looking to attack it, that adds to the understandable confusion when you’re dealing with an evolving outbreak,”
It couldn't be because he changes his tune so much he's forgotten what the truth every was. I'm going with that.
RUSSIANS ARE TAKING TO THE STREETS TO PROTEST FORCED FIGHTING As Putin is calling up 300,000 reserves and recalling veterans to make up the losses they've suffered in Ukraine, the Russian people are NOT happy and have taken to the streets to protest. Chanting "Send Putin to the trenches" just a mile from the Kremlin is a pretty bold move in Russia but it happened. Pray for the Russian people to have the strength to depose Putin and end this war. Here is the video from last night.
THIS IN DEPTH STORY ABOUT HOMELESSNESS IN CALIFORNIA IS WHAT WE'RE HEADED FOR IN COLORADO They are just years ahead of us letting this kind of behavior continue in our formerly beautiful cities. This story is harsh.
IT'S AMAZING WHAT ONE SIMPLE FLIGHT TO MARTHA'S VINEYARD CAN ACCOMPLISH And even as the Dems are still shouting about "human trafficking" by Ron DeSantis more Americans are now searching for details about ACTUAL human trafficking at the border. This is not good news, as google searches about the border have soared in the last week. After the Dobbs decision, we saw searches on abortion soar, but now the border and immigration have taken over. This is bad news for the Democrats to be sure because they lose on the border and lose badly.
