    Degrading the DollarAmerica’s inflation has more staying power and deeper roots than Washington admits.After months of describing inflation as a “transitory,” Washington has at last admitted what every American has known for some time: inflation is severe and shows no sign of abating. Administration officials refuse to admit error—not unusual in Washington—but they have at least acknowledged the inflationary reality and have walked back earlier comments. Because inflation has more fundamental roots than Washington has yet admitted, it is comforting that monetary policy has at last begun—though only just begun—to deal with the threat.Overwhelming evidence has forced the change in...

    More Than 400 Studies on the Failure of Compulsory Covid InterventionsThe great body of evidence (comparative research studies and high-quality pieces of evidence and reporting judged to be relevant to this analysis) shows that COVID-19 lockdowns, shelter-in-place policies, masks, school closures, and mask mandates have failed in their purpose of curbing transmission or reducing deaths. These restrictive policies were ineffective and devastating failures, causing immense harm especially to the poorer and vulnerable within societies. Nearly all governments have attempted compulsory measures to control the virus, but no government can claim success. The research indicates that mask mandates, lockdowns, and school...

    A main instigator for the attack has been named as Farhan Adrees a worker at the factory who it is said played the central role in instigating and gathering the mob. Rather alarmingly, the gathered mob can be heard chanting slogans such as ‘Labaik Ya Rasool Allah’ (Here I am at your service, O Messenger of Allah), they can be seen revelling while beating the alleged blasphemer.

    Super duo combine It was the 89th and 90th TDs between star duo Brady and Gronkowski – moving them second on the all-time list, topped by Hall of Famers Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison (112). "I hope we do. I look for him down there, he is a really big target most of the game," the 44-year-old Brady said when asked if he and Gronkowski would play long enough to eclipse Manning and Harrison.

    Human Events ^ | 12-2-21 | Henry I. Miller and Tom Hafer
    We graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology 50 years ago. Though it was a tough place academically, MIT taught us our crafts and the essence of problem-solving and enabled us to thrive in our chosen careers. We owe much to ”the ‘tute,” as it is fondly known, and have demonstrated that financially over the years. But no more. Today, the 160 year-old-institution, once a bedrock of science and innovation, has caved to the demands of “wokeness.” In autumn of 2020, MIT sent an email to students, including those already registered and attending, informing them that if they failed to...
  • Fauci: 'We Really Want to Flood the System With Testing'; 200-500 Million Tests Per Month

    The Biden administration's strategy for dealing with COVID this winter includes widespread testing, as announced by President Biden on Thursday -- a message later amplified by Dr. Anthony Fauci on Thursday evening: "I mean, the president made that announcement in his five-part plan to address what we're going to be facing this winter," Fauci told MSNBC's Chris Hayes. "And one of them that we've spoken about and will happen is to really flood the system with tests, including free tests. "And, in fact, what people are not aware of is that there's an investment of billions of dollars to make...
  • Nikki Fried: DeSantis Is a ‘Dictator’ Who Wants to Employ Unvaccinated People

    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” Florida Agriculture Commissioner and gubernatorial candidate Nikki Fried (D) reacted to Gov. Ron DeSantis proposing the creation of the Florida State Guard, which previously existed in Florida and would make Florida the 23rd state in America to have an active state guard by stating that DeSantis is “an authoritarian dictator here in our state,” and that DeSantis is asking for unvaccinated people from New York to come to Florida, “and now he’s going to employ them here in the state of Florida.” Fried said, “This is horrifying…when you were going through all of...
  • Bank of America execs warn junior staffers to 'dress down' as NYC crime surges

    Amid a surge in some New York City violent crime, Wall Street bigwigs continue to encourage younger staffers to come into the office — but to do so with caution. At Bank of America, senior executives have quietly encouraged younger employees to “dress down” to attract less attention as they make their way to B of A’s tower at 1 Bryant Park. These execs have told their staffers that dressing up, or wearing anything with a Bank of America logo, could make them a target. One bank employee told On The Money he is on high alert after he spotted...
  • A Frenchman did the science Fauci didn't: Omicron is no delta Exclusive: Joel S. Hirschhorn spotlights the low transmissibility of new COVID variant

    So much talk about omicron; so much fear mongering; so much talk about science. Most is nonsense. The best research has received little attention. It comes from esteemed senior French scientist Dr. Jacques Fantini, professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Aix-Marseille. You are about to learn what senior people in the public health establishment need to use, especially Anthony Fauci, who claims he speaks for and represents "science." If he knows the French research, he is not sharing it with the public, nor are the mainstream media. The key scientific achievement by Fantini is the calculation...
  • Alec Baldwin: I Don't Feel Guilty Over Fatal Shooting Because It's Not My Fault

    Actor Alec Baldwin told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos while he is sad over accidentally killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on a movie set with a prop gun, he does not have any guilt over the incident because he is not responsible. "No. No. I feel that someone is responsible for what happened and I can’t say who that is, but I know it’s not me," Baldwin said. "What do we come out of this learning? What changes can be made? This is a one-in-a-billion that someone puts a real bullet in a gun and that never happens," Baldwin added. He wants...
  • Vaccine inventor: 'Fundamentally evil' COVID policies harming children Dr. Robert Malone tells WND the damage is 'deep and profound and will last for decades'(repeat?)

    In a wide-ranging video interview with WND, the vaccine researcher who invented the messenger RNA technology behind the Pfizer and Moderna shots explained why he opposes universal vaccination for the COVID-19 virus and why he's been willing to risk the reputation he's cultivated over three decades and weather the scorn of the government and health-care establishment. Dr. Robert Malone cited the evidence for his concerns about the vaccines, the mandates and policies he believes are causing serious harm, particularly to children, but he also offered insight on his personal journey during the pandemic that has rocked the world. Unknown to...
  • Gallup reveals Bidenflation causing hardship for nearly half of Americans

    Joe Biden's policies since he took office have allowed inflation to surge in the United States, with gasoline prices up by more than a dollar a gallon across wide regions, food more costly and even consumer items demanding higher prices because of those increases in transportation costs. Now a new poll from Gallup confirms what consumers already know all too well: it's causing hardship for them. The poll revealed that Biden's inflation is causing "hardship" for nearly half of the nation's population – 45% to be exact. And it hits hardest at those who can least afford it, the poll...
  • Psychology Today Misses Mark On Guns, Gun Rights, And Fears

    Psychology is the study of the human mind. It’s a fascinating subject, one I spend a decent amount of time delving into. I’m interested in why people think and act the way they do. Unfortunately, the study of psychology has some issues. A lot of studies simply can’t be replicated, which calls their findings into question, for one thing. Luckily, one of the largest publications covering the field is on top of the problem. OK, not really. Instead, they’re going to tell us about how fear is driving our support for gun rights and offer suggestions on just how to...

    Hunter, Gilliar, and Walker in February of 2017 met Ye in Miami to continue negotiating the deal. The meeting yielded a successful outcome for Hunter. Hunter reportedly scored a lucrative deal with Ye in which he would receive $10 million for at least three years. In return, Hunter would simply make introductions for Ye. “Ye sealed the new alliance with a rich gift — a 3.16-carat diamond worth $80,000. Photographs of the stunning stone appear on Hunter’s laptop along with a grading report that lists it as a ’round brilliant’ of Grade F with prime ‘VS2’ clarity and ‘excellent’ cut,”...
  • Amazing: Smollett Took His 'Attackers' on Dry Run the Day Before Faked Hate Crime

    The Jussie Smollett trial in Chicago is underway, and it's been quite a show thus far. Fox News correspondent Matt Finn, who's been on this case since it first broke almost three years ago, has been following every twist and turn. One of the key arguments from Smollett's defense team -- which amusingly continues to frame their client as 'a real victim' -- is that the police rushed to judgment and failed to do due diligence before wrongly concluding that the alleged crime was a hoax. That contention blew up in their faces, as Chicago officials testified in great detail...

    From Kids to ComradesNeo-Marxists are Communizing your children.To make sense of the current war on the family—and make no mistake, there is one—we must travel back to early 20th-century revolutionary Russia and then pass by Hungary on our way home. Because, odd as it may seem, recent snapshots from across our nation are all related. The Department of Justice targets parents for challenging the school’s racialist curriculum. Police officers arrest a dad after he exposes that his daughter was raped in her school’s bathroom by a boy in a skirt. A politician declares, “I don’t think parents should be telling...

    In pushing white guilt, the Salvation Army is starting to resemble the NEA with CRT. Soon, its supporters will be forced to choose between their favorite charity and their country. The Army and I go way back – to before I was born. My mother grew up in a poor, immigrant neighborhood in Troy, New York. Every year during Christmas, the Salvation Army would come around with warm mittens, knit caps and oranges for the children. My father, who served in the Second World War, knew he could always get a cup of coffee and a donut at one of...
