    Joe Biden and other Democrats promise to curtail U.S. domestic oil production, the northeastern United States could face a historic energy crisis as temperatures fall this winter, burdening an energy economy already beset by record-high prices and oil shortages. Signs of vulnerability in the Northeast have been apparent in recent months, Bloomberg reported, with retailers already rationing oil as stockpiles of diesel and heating oil are at a third of their normal levels. Those unfavorable conditions could bring about challenges to the Northeast's energy infrastructure that would be unprecedented in most Americans' lifetimes, according to Bloomberg: Add some cold to...

    Fertilizer Giant Yara Slashes European Output As Energy Crisis Worsens.. Europe’s fertilizer supply crunch continues to tighten after Yara International ASA announced Thursday that third-quarter ammonia output was slashed due to skyrocketing natural gas prices, putting more upward pressure on food inflation as the cost-of-living crisis worsens. The Norwegian producer said ammonia output in the quarter dropped to 57% of capacity in Europe, plunging from 81% in the previous quarter. It warned output could collapse to just 35% if NatGas prices stay elevated through the cold season, according to Bloomberg. Russia’s squeeze on NatGas, Western sanctions on Moscow inhibiting energy...

    One of the world’s leading cardiologists is raising the alarm after discovering “significant” links between soaring “unexpected” deaths and COVID-19 vaccines. Top London cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra was among the first people to get their Covid shot and made regular appearances on British television to promote the vaccinations. However, he has now made a complete U-turn after unearthing evidence to suggest that the shots are causing a global spike in sudden cardiac deaths in otherwise healthy people. As Slay News previously reported, Malhotra first spoke out last month and called for vaccinations to be stopped “immediately.” He argued in a...

    ROME — Pope Francis told a group of Spanish businesspeople Monday that today’s world is characterized by “war,” “environmental crisis,” and “economic imbalance.” “We are living in a period of notorious economic and social imbalances,” the pontiff declared, where “extravagance and wretchedness exist side by side.” In the current context, “characterized by war and the environmental crisis,” the pope asserted, “it is urgent to propose an economy suited to helping solve the great problems that we live worldwide.”

    Democrats are napping peacefully through the US-Mexico “border” crisis they engineered. Perhaps these data will snap them from their slumber: The US Department of Homeland Security reports that the Mexican cartels’ income from smuggling illegal migrants into America has soared from $500 million in 2018 to $13 billion this year — up 2,500%. ... Border Patrol agents apprehended 951,568 illegal immigrants during President Donald Trump’s final 19 months in office.

    As the dark years are approaching, the world is now approaching survival mode. Admittedly, if you go to a high class restaurant in New York, London or Zurich, there are no signs of misery but instead of incredible affluence. What is happening to middle America or England has not yet reached Wall Street or the City of London where exquisite food is plenty and excellent wines are flowing. This is of course no different to the end of eras with major excesses and decadence. It was the same at the peak of the Roman Empire 2000 years ago or in...

    Legendary investor Stanley Druckenmiller sees the Federal Reserve triggering a recession with its inflation fighting policy and warns that financial markets could stagnate for a decade as a result. "I will be stunned if we don’t have recession in ’23," Druckenmiller said Wednesday at CNBC’s Delivering Alpha Investor Summit in New York. "I don’t know the timing but certainly by the end of ’23. I don’t rule out something really bad." Druckenmiller, who runs Duquense Family Office, a wealth manager with more than $1.3 billion of assets under management, pointed to the extraordinary quantitative easing and zero interest rates over...

    A top White House official warned in a memo issued Thursday that Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) proposal for a national abortion ban would lead to a “nationwide health care crisis” and transform reproductive medicine. Jennifer Klein, director of the Gender Policy Council at the White House, wrote in a memo obtained by The Hill that Graham’s legislation would endanger pregnant people and have catastrophic consequences for the health care system.

    The number of people killed on U.S. roadways fell slightly from April through June, the first decline in two years as pandemic-era reckless driving appeared to ease. But the government says the number of deaths remains at a crisis level. Estimates from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that 20,175 people died in crashes from January through June, a 0.5% increase over the same period last year. Yet the second-quarter decline ended a string of seven straight quarterly increases that began in the summer of 2020 with the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. The agency estimated that 10,590 people...

    The White House came close this week to facing yet another crisis, this time over a railroad dispute that could have taken a crowbar to the U.S. economy ahead of crucial midterm elections. But in the end, a tentative deal was struck, with both sides crediting the Biden administration with stepping in to help avert a strike that was set to begin on Friday — one that could have further disrupted the nation’s fragile supply chain. Administration officials became involved in the talks weeks ago, lobbying both sides around the clock to argue the stakes were too high for a...

    Professor Damien Ernst of the University of Liege in Belgium is making startling predictions about the economic future of Europe, if something is not done to lower energy prices. In an interview with French news site Atlantico on Monday, Ernst predicted that if energy prices are not contained, Europe is going to see mass impoverishment, and he noted there is no indication the energy situation is going to improve anytime soon. In the interview he predicted that, “the perfect storm” that has formed in energy markets will have a massive impact on household and businesses, and that as time goes...

    The Pentagon’s rosters are tens of thousands of troops short, as the department battles the worst recruiting crisis since the draft ended in 1973. Criminal records, drug use, and poor health bar three out of four Americans from serving without a waiver, while a booming civilian jobs market entices many of the rest. In response, the Pentagon ought to tap the largest pool of available talent: foreigners.No self-respecting country should rely entirely on foreign troops. But enlisting some quickly fills the ranks with quality personnel. The British Army has long turned to Gurkhas, Fijians, and others from the Commonwealth, in...

    The New York Times said Donald Trump must face prosecution over his "unprecedented assault" on American democracy to show that no one is "above the law." In an editorial published on Friday, the Times suggested that it is vital that the former president be criminally investigated over his attempts to overturn the 2020 election results, including a plot to install fake electoral officials in a number of key states, before he "roused an armed mob" to storm the Capitol on January 6. The paper's editorial board said that while "no one should revel" in the prospect of a former president...

    A majority of Americans believe the ongoing crisis at the border represents some level of “invasion,” according to a new NPR/Ipsos poll. Researchers surveyed 1,116 adults from across the United States on July 28-29 regarding their views on the ongoing immigration crisis at the border and how it relates to the presence of illegal drugs in the U.S. The poll has a confidence interval of 5.1 percentage points. In response to the statement that the situation at the southern border represented an “invasion,” a majority of respondents responded affirmatively, with 28% answering that the statement is “completely true” and 25%...

    Replenishing the military ranks with qualified personnel is a perennial challenge. It’s no secret, though, that this year our armed forces are fighting uphill to recruit and retain talent. Most of the services are well behind their quotas.But the Army, our largest service, is having the hardest time enticing young Americans. That service will fall short, nearly 20,000 troops from its original target end strength of 485,000 for FY ’22, and next year could be worse.To manage, Army officials have slashed end strength and enlistment goals, while recruiters are offering fat stacks of cash and generous service terms as inducements....
