  • Goodbye Middle Class: 50 Percent of All U.S. Workers Made $34,612.04 or Less Last Year

    10/19/2021 5:27:41 PM PDT · by RomanSoldier19 · 31 replies ^ | October 18, 2021 | by Michael Snyder
    If we keep going down this path, soon we won’t have much of a “middle class” at all. When I first started writing about the economy many years ago, I often wrote about the tens of millions of “working poor” Americans that were enduring so many hardships. But at this point most of the nation now falls into the “working poor” category. That isn’t because wages haven’t been going up. Little by little, wages have been incrementally rising year after year, but meanwhile the cost of living has been absolutely soaring. Paychecks have not even come close to keeping up...

    A Volusia County restaurant owner angry about the deaths of 13 U.S. service members killed in last week’s suicide bombing at the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, blames President Biden and says she no longer welcomes his supporters at her business. Angie Ugarte, owner of the DeBary Diner, posted a sign on the front door reading: “If you voted for and continue to support and stand behind the worthless, inept and corrupt administration currently inhabiting the White House that is complicit in the death of our servicemen and women in Afghanistan, please take your business elsewhere.”

    President Biden on Friday toured damage from Hurricane Ida in Louisiana as the state struggles to restore power and rebuild after the Category 4 storm. Biden was greeted by local officials after stepping off Air Force One in New Orleans. The tarmac welcome party included Democratic Gov. John Edwards and Republican Sens. Bill Cassidy and John Kennedy. House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell, a Democrat, also welcomed Biden. Biden walked to the Marine One helicopter with a cheat-sheet of officials’ names and photos, along with what appeared to be a script of remarks, sticking...

    This past June, the Biden Administration canceled the Contingency and Crisis Response (CCR) plan that the Trump Administration established for a controlled withdrawal of US troops stationed in Afghanistan. The plan laid out conditions that both the Afghan government and the Taliban would have to adhere to before US troops were removed. These conditions included a truce, shared, and protections for foreigners inside the country while their home nations arranged for their exit from Afghanistan. Secretary of State Tony Blinken explained that "this plan was unnecessary since the Taliban had given us their word that no one would be hurt...

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki interrupted her vacation this week to address President Joe Biden’s Afghanistan disaster. Psaki will brief reporters on Tuesday afternoon, according to the White House schedule. Psaki was previously expected to take a week off for vacation, according to an auto-reply notice from her email account informing reporters she would be on vacation between August 15th through the 22nd. She was reportedly back at the White House on Monday, as Biden addressed reporters about the humanitarian disaster unfolding in Afghanistan.

    The Federalist ^ | 08/16/2021 | Margot Cleveland
    While the Biden administration has already attempted to shift blame to Donald Trump for the scenes coming out of Afghanistan, Biden owns both the decision to leave and the catastrophic withdrawal he oversaw as commander-in-chief.“When I came to office, I inherited a deal cut by my predecessor—which he invited the Taliban to discuss at Camp David on the eve of 9/11 of 2019—that left the Taliban in the strongest position militarily since 2001 and imposed a May 1, 2021 deadline on U.S. forces,” Biden said in a statement released Saturday.“Therefore, when I became President, I faced a choice — follow...

    Did anyone expect Joe Biden to screw things up so badly so quickly? I admit that I thought it would take longer for things to get as bad as now.I take no pleasure in this. Our country is hurting and paying a huge price for the Biden presidency, and it’s hard to imagine how such a dumpster fire was achieved in record time. But it seems like we traded mean tweets for gross incompetence, and believe me, given a choice, I think most of us would rather have the mean tweets back.Seriously, it feels like everything that Joe Biden touches...

    Former President Donald Trump sent a statement to his followers calling on President Joe Biden to 'resign in disgrace' on Sunday amid the Taliban's takeover of Afghanistan after the withdrawal of US troops. 'It is time for Joe Biden to resign in disgrace for what he has allowed to happen to Afghanistan, along with the tremendous surge in COVID, the Border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy,' Trump said in an email. He continued perpetuating his claim that Biden won the presidency via election fraud, concluding the email: 'It shouldn't be a big deal, because he...

  • Ring the alarm: it's time for US schools to have climate disaster drills

    With the Atlantic hurricane season upon us, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is forecasting that 2021 will be an above-normal hurricane season. It seems each year climatic hazards — most acutely hurricanes here in the United States — are becoming more intense and more destructive. Yet, our systemic responses to such hazards have evolved little. The federal government traditionally funds programs pre-disaster to mitigate the effects of hazards and post-disaster to assist communities to recover and rebuild. While funding vehicles may operate under different names and emphasize resilience more today than a decade ago, little attention is paid beyond...

    The Olympic Games are proving to be an easy punching bag for Americans. Many have been long fed up by the politicization of sports overall and by big-box media outlets’ reliance on touchy-feely personal accounts to bolster ideology at the expense of athletic performance. As a result, it appears the personally empowered PC Olympics have turned out to be a ratings flop.“NBC’s primetime coverage of the Tokyo Olympics continued to spiral downward on Monday [July 26], averaging 14.7 million viewers for a 49% drop compared to the equivalent night from the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games,” Fox News reports. “Monday’s...
  • Catastrophic floods claim lives of more than 150 people, leave more than 1,000 missing, Europe

    More than 150 people across Europe have been killed and more than 600 injured after record-breaking rains caused catastrophic flooding on July 14 and 15, 2021. German authorities said more than 1 000 people are still unaccounted for. The worst affected were Germany and Belgium, followed by France, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. In western Germany alone, the worst-affected region, more than 130 people have been killed after extremely heavy rains caused rivers to burst their banks, destroying roads, bridges, and homes. Numerous mudslides have contributed to the disaster which happened at an astonishing speed. According to DW, more than...
  • 'Every officer is up to speed on diversity training. Not so much ship handling': Scathing official report finds US Navy is not fit for war because of risk averse, politically correct, control-freak top brass

    A scathing new report commissioned by members of Congress has claimed that the Navy's surface warfare forces have systemic training and leadership issues, including a focus on diversity that overshadows basic readiness skills. The report prepared by Marine Lt. Gen. Robert Schmidle and Rear Adm. Mark Montgomery, both retired, came in response to recent Naval disasters, including the burning of the USS Bonhomme Richard in San Diego, two collisions involving Navy ships in the Pacific and the surrender of two small craft to Iran. The authors conducted hour-long interviews with 77 current and retired Navy officers, offering them anonymity to...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top disease expert in the U.S., drew ire on social media Wednesday when critics said he seemed to write off vaccine hesitancy as a purely political statement. Fauci gave an interview to MSNBC and talked about how important it is for Americans to get vaccinated. He said vaccines help protect the person receiving the jab, as well as family members and the community. He expressed frustration with those who continue to refuse the shots that he called highly effective and safe. "You’ve gotta ask: What is the problem?" he said. "Get over it. Get over this...

    Yet another leak — from another news outlet — suggests trouble brewing in Vice President Kamala Harris' office. Axios' report on internal turmoil and other woes in the vice president's office was immediately brushed off by Biden officials, including White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain. "The President's trust and confidence in her is obvious when you see them in the Oval Office together," he told the outlet in a statement. But it's the third report just this week — following CNBC and Politico's lead — to express concerns of tension in the White House. Multiple people allegedly threw around...

    A Chinese nuclear power station is leaking radioactive gas and could become a major disaster, according to secret US intelligence reports. Taishan Nuclear Power Plant, located in southern Guangdong province, is thought to have been leaking for at least two weeks after a French firm that co-owns the facility flagged the issue to Washington. Cover up! American agents have spent the last week monitoring the situation and have concluded it has the potential turn into a major disaster but that facility is not currently at ‘crisis level’. That is in stark contrast to the message being put out by the...

    Drought has dried up what was Mexico’s second-biggest lake, destroying a once thriving fishing economy in Michoacán. The scale of the problem? Lake Cuitzeo should have 800 million cubic meters of water, but today it doesn’t even have 200. Now, the more than 300-square-kilometer reservoir has become a cemetery for fishing boats and a shortcut for motorists to reach Morelia, the state capital of Michoacán. The water disappearance also creates frequent and prolonged dust clouds that sometimes reach nearby communities, affecting health of residents, as well as causing allergies, respiratory illnesses and gastrointestinal complications from the bacteria they transport. Everything...

    The calm of a sunny May afternoon in Taiwan was broken by what the Nikkei describes as a crescendo of smartphones buzzing due to a national emergency alert: electricity blackouts were coming due to a malfunction at a power plant in the south of the island. People had no time to prepare. There were more than 30 reports of people being trapped in elevators half an hour after the warning in the capital city. “I was talking to my clients… but our building suddenly blacked out. The air conditioning as well as WiFi crashed completely, so I went home early,”...
