    On Tuesday’s “PBS NewsHour,” Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) stated that communities are worried about the clawback of COVID money in the debt ceiling bill because “they thought they had until 2024 to spend that money.” And that she has been telling communities, “if you need that money, you should be spending it now.” Dingell said, “First of all, I still feel like we’re being held hostage. The fact of the matter is, the country cannot default, period. And the consequences are scary and intimidating. We would be harming our economy for years to come, hurting seniors, veterans, children. I could...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Despite consumer opposition, companies believe backing transgenderism will win them more long-term cash because it has the approval of global regulatory power players, according to women’s rights activist Kay Yang. The push is part of a philosophical movement aimed at allowing for customization of the human body with sex-change surgery, technological advances, and more, she said. And companies seek to be part of this fast-growing lucrative industry. Yang speaks with authority on the push to build acceptance for transgenderism. She’s seen that cabal from the inside. Until she left in disgust, Yang worked passionately as an LGBT activist, she...

    International Man: In practically every country, the allowable limit for cash withdrawals and transactions continues to be lowered. Further, rampant currency debasement is lowering the real value of these ridiculous limits. Why are governments so intent on phasing out cash? What is really behind this coordinated effort? Doug Casey: Let me draw your attention to three truths that my friend Nick Giambruno has pointed out about money in bank accounts. #1. The money isn’t really yours. You’re just another unsecured creditor if the bank goes bust. #2. The money isn’t actually there. It’s been lent out to borrowers who are...

    Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Friday notified lawmakers the nation will run out of money to pay its bills by June 5 if they do not raise the debt ceiling. “Based on the most recent available data, we now estimate that Treasury will have insufficient resources to satisfy the government’s obligations if Congress has not raised or suspended the debt limit by June 5,” Yellen told leaders. The update may offer negotiators who were working with an estimated June 1 “X-date” more breathing room to clinch a deal to raise the debt ceiling, but it also sets a hard deadline.
  • Jeffrey Epstein moved more than $250,000 between accounts for Noam Chomsky, who said the money was for a 'pure technicality'

    Renowned academic and political activist Noam Chomsky sought sex offender Jeffrey Epstein's help with managing financial transactions totaling over a quarter million dollars, The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday. In late April, the Journal revealed that Chomsky and Epstein met multiple times, even after Epstein pled guilty in 2008 to soliciting and procuring a minor for prostitution. New reporting from the outlet highlighted that beyond a group dinner with Woody Allen, Epstein helped Chomsky move large sums of money, which the academic said was for a "technicality" related to distributing funds from a previous marriage. Chomsky confirmed to the...
  • Flatiron Building Back Up for Auction After $190M Bidding Bungle

    It's not everyday one of New York's most iconic landmarks is up for public auction. And yet, two months after an eye-popping $190 million offer won Jacob Garlick the Flatiron Building in a bidding war outside a Manhattan courthouse, the 121-year-old building is back up for sale. Crain's New York reports the building recognizable by its triangle shape is going up for auction once again on May 23. Garlick shocked the real estate world when he made the winning bid at the March auction, even beating out the current owners who reportedly sought to retain the building. But when it...

    President Joe Biden and the media are excited about something new: a Central Bank Digital Currency, or CBDC. It's a currency like Bitcoin, except controlled by the federal government. Not everyone is a fan. "Sometimes government does things that may appear to be benevolent but really are kind of like a wolf in sheep's clothing," says Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in my new video. "This is a wolf coming as a wolf."For months, I've tried to get DeSantis to sit down for an interview. What finally got him to agree was government's plan for digital money."If you don't trust central...

    The U.S. will provide $1.2 billion more in long-term military aid to Ukraine to further bolster its air defenses as Russia continues to pound Ukraine with drones, rockets and surface-to-air missiles, U.S. officials said Monday.The aid package is expected to be announced on Tuesday and the money will be provided under the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative. Unlike the U.S. equipment, weapons and ammunition that are more frequently sent to Ukraine from Pentagon stocks — so they can be delivered quickly — this money is to be spent over the coming months or even years to ensure Ukraine's future security needs.

    Former President Trump will try to move his Manhattan criminal hush money case from state to federal court, his lawyer said. Trump attorney Todd Blanche made the announcement during a court hearing Thursday, according to The Associated Press. Moving the case to federal court would increase the potential jury pool, which is currently limited to the heavily-Democratic population of Manhattan. Blanche said Trump’s legal team will file a motion later Thursday to transfer the case, according to the AP. Trump faces 34 felony counts of falsifying business records over his alleged role in a hush money scheme ahead of the...

    Under Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi (now Hakeem Jeffries), the US economy is addicted to gov … spending and debt. Some are marvelling that M2 Money VELOCITY (GDP/M2) is rising as if this is a miracle. It isn’t. Under Biden, public debt has increased by $3.7 trillion. But as The Fed pulls back and M2 Money growth slows, M2 Money Velocity is rising. But still below historic levels. Doctor, doctor (Yellen). We have a bad case of excessive and wasteful Federal spending and debt. China doesn’t have to invade the US. Biden, Schumer and Jeffries are destroying the...

    Woke ideology is the train. Total monitoring and control over money and energy is the destination. Few on the American Right are unaware of Anheuser-Busch’s recent foray into woke politics. Taking their regular customers for granted, the once-great American company “partnered” with a transsexual person to become a new product spokesperson for Bud Light. The imbroglio that followed is just one of the latest installments of the culture war over woke ideology, now working through its “trans” iteration, which is keeping the lights on in political consultancies across the nation and consuming huge percentages of conservative mind-share. The encroachment of...

    Forty-Seven percent of Democrats want someone other than Joe Biden running for president. He’s boring. He’s old. He lacks passion. Who would bet on this guy? Better check with Las Vegas. Biden is the favorite to win the 2024 presidential election, according to nonpartisan gamblers taking bets on the big political race. The reason people are betting on Biden is that his likely opponent is Donald Trump. Sixty-five percent of Americans recently told AP polling they cannot vote for Trump in 2024.

    An ABC News host admitted the network edited statements Robert F. Kennedy Jr. made about the COVID-19 vaccine out of an exclusive interview it conducted with the longshot Democratic presidential candidate. “We should note that during our conversation, Kennedy made false claims about the COVID-19 vaccines,” anchor Linsey Davis said in a disclaimer when the interview aired Thursday. “We’ve used our editorial judgment in not including extended portions of that exchange in our interview.” “Data shows that the COVID-19 vaccine has prevented millions of hospitalizations and deaths from the disease,” Davis added. “He also made misleading claims about the relationship...

    By the summer of 1563, all of Britain had plunged into chaos over religion and the Reformation. King Henry VIII broke away from the Catholic church back in the 1530s, sparking a near civil war within the kingdom. Protestants killed Catholics, Catholics killed protestants, and extreme social tensions lasted for decades. Universities were at the heart of this conflict; rather than focus on real subjects like science and mathematics, students and professors became radical social activists and turned their schools into ideological echo chambers. Sound familiar? One of the few students who actually wanted to learn was a Scottish teenager...

Governor Gavin Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, was paid $1.5 million over the decade to run a non-profit film and school curriculum organization, Adam Andrzejewski told the Drill Down. The group licenses its films to 5,000 schools across the country, which pay licensing fees to the non-profit. The non-profit doesn’t create the films. That’s done by a for-profit film production company she also owns, which...

    Under the leadership of President Joe Biden, the White House and the Federal Reserve have started to lay the groundwork for a programmable, trackable, easily manipulated digital currency. It might sound like something from a dystopian science-fiction novel, but it’s all too real, and it could soon change life in America forever. In March 2022, the Biden administration released a sweeping executive order that directed numerous federal agencies to crack down on digital assets, including on popular cryptocurrencies, as well as to study the potential development of a central bank digital currency (CBDC).

Maher said, “I also read this week in the paper, one in three children in America cannot read at a basic level of comprehension. 85% of black students lack proficiency in reading skills. We already spend a lot of money on schools, so you’re going to keep telling me more money will fix this? … And it seems like a lot of times the solutions that come from...
