  • Remembering Douglas MacArthur: Was He A Trump-like Flawed Genius?

    Its is Douglas MacArthurs 143rd birthday. Was he the 1950's equivalent of Donald Trump? The times when he showed great leadership were many. He modernised Wrest Point, asking when he had recently begun the task post World War One, "Why are we still preparing for the War Of 1812?" He resisted Australians who wanted to betray their own country in WW2 and surrender half the continent to Japan above the Brisbane line because he knew the all conquering Japanese were over extended and could be beaten. He did that aged in his 60s with island hopping strategic brilliance. In his...

    Flashback: Biden: WW3 starts with the shipment of offensive equipment like tanks to Ukraine ... US to send Ukraine 31 tanks in abrupt Biden White House reversal WASHINGTON – The US will send Ukraine 31 M1 Abrams tanks, President Biden announced Wednesday in a neck-snapping reversal from the Pentagon’s stated opposition late last week — though Kyiv won’t be able to make full use of the vehicles for months “The Abrams tanks are the most capable tanks in the world,” Biden said in remarks from the White House. “These tanks are further evidence of our enduring and unflagging commitment to...
  • Good News, Bad News! US New Home Sales Rise 2.3% In December, But DOWN -23% YoY (Median Price UP 7.8% YoY While M2 Money Growth Goes Negative)

    The December new home sales report is good news and bad news. The good news? US new home sales rose by 2.3% in December from November to 616k units sold SAAR. That is the good news. The bad news? Since December of 2021, new home sales fell -23% year-over-year (YoY). The median price of new home sales rose 7.8% YoY, but the trend as The Fed withdraws monetary stimulus (orange line) is not good. Perhaps there is a communications breakdown between the Biden Administration and The Federal Reserve.

    Joe Biden was a lousy Congressman. He was a lousy Senator. He's a lousy President. He is a liar. He is a grifter. He is plagiarist. The self-described poorest man in Congress is a multi-millionaire, owning several mansions. Biden Inc has made $31 million through deals with people having direct contact with the highest levels of Chinese intelligence. Hunter Biden scored millions from those Chinese deals, even enjoying free rides on Air Force 2 to cash in on Pop's office of VP which Joe made available. Joe has repeatedly denied knowing anything about his son's business dealings but a voicemail...
  • Is That All There Is? US GDP Expands At Only 2.9% Pace While Slowdown Signs Mount (Like M2 Money Slowing To -1.31% YoY And PCE Growth Less Than Forecast)

    Confounded Interest ^ | 01/26/2023 | Anthony B. Sanders
    Today’s GDP report from the BEA reminds me of the Peggy Lee song “Is That All There Is?” Between the massive Fed monetary stimulus since late 2008 (and particularly since Covid in 2020) and all the Federal spending (Covid relief, Inflation reduction, Omnipork spending bill, etc.), US real GDP rose by only 2.9% in Q4 from Q3. But signs of slowing underlying demand mounted as the steepest interest-rate hikes in decades threaten growth this year. Gross domestic product increased at a 2.9% annualized rate in final three months of 2022 after a 3.2% gain in the third quarter, the Commerce...

    Microsoft founder and billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates said China’s rise has been “a huge win for the world” in a Monday interview about global challenges. Gates was speaking at the Lowy Institute, an Australia-based non-partisan international policy think tank, according to its website. “I tend to see China’s rise as a huge win for the world. I mean, that’s 20 percent of humanity,” Gates said. “China is a very innovative country, very important, you know, arguably the number two innovator, but the distance [from the US] is unbelievable.” Gates believes the world system is designed around “U.S. leadership” and a...

    I was going to post this under Catholic Caucus but I decided instead to open it up. To summarize: Pope Francis, aka Papa Pacha, gave an interview with AP on Tuesday, he said that certain bishops need to go through a process of conversion (whatever that means), that laws criminalizing homosexuality are "unjust", that it's all part of the "human condition", but nonetheless still a sin. Francis could have said all of the above about suicide, but didn't, as these traditional bishops he went after are against it as well, it is a crime to commit suicide, a sin people...
  • WHAT? NYT Editorial Board Member Claims ‘Real Debt Crisis’ Is ‘Low Taxes'

    A New York Times editorial board member actually claimed that Americans should be concerned about their taxes being too low when thinking about the $31 trillion-plus national debt crisis. Yes, you read that correctly. Binyamin Appelbaum, The Times editorial board’s so-called “lead writer on economics and business” argued that the government is actually a victim in the debt crisis that it created. “The Real Debt Crisis Is Low Taxes,” read the headline of his nonsensical Jan. 25 op-ed. It seems he realized just how stupid his headline sounded as The Times later changed the headline entirely, making it appear more...

    There appears to be a trend going on at liberal video programming distributor DirecTV. The company dropped Newsmax from its channel lineup just months after it nixed One America News from the platform. Newsmax reported Jan. 25 that DirecTV “cut” the outlet’s “signal, immediately shutting the network off from more than 13 million customers of the satellite service, DirecTV Stream, and U-Verse." Newsmax said it was “seeking a fee with a 75% discount to its market value, and compared to fees currently paid by DirecTV, almost all 50 channels below Newsmax in ratings get higher fees.” Newsmax Media CEO Christopher...
  • Just Like The Fed! M2 Broad Money Supply Growth Falls To -1.8% YoY, M1 Money Growth Falls To -3.6% YoY As US Job Layoffs Accelerate

    Its just like The Federal Reserve to be cutting US money growth as US jobs cuts accelerate. The latest US money growth numbers are out and they are daunting. M2 Money growth YoY is now negative at -1.8%. M1 money, a narrower defition of money, is now down -3.6% YoY. This is happening as the labor market is seeing a wave of layoffs. We are just the stepping stone for The Fed. As The Fed ponders inflation versus job growth, its a case of “Him or Me, What’s it going to be?”

    Matt Gaetz joined Steve Bannon on the War Room to discuss the Deep State’s reaction to the unfolding Biden classified document scandal. Gaetz recalled how Americans, who saw the Russian Collusion sham for what it was, were branded conspiracy theorists. “Meanwhile, Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell were saying that Donald Trump was a Russian agent and that they had more than circumstantial evidence that he was a Russian agent,” Gaetz said. “Well, guess who the Russian agent was? The FBI counterintelligence chief in New York who was involved in investigating Trump taking money from Oleg Deripaska,” he pointed out. Gaetz...

    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif) rejected President Biden's demand for a "clean" debt ceiling hike, saying "cramming a bloated federal spending package through during the 'lame duck' session showed total disrespect for the American people's concerns about government overspending. The Republican majority in the House intends to give these concerns a fair hearing. Fending off bankruptcy should be a bipartisan effort." Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen called the Republicans' focus on the national debt "naive. The federal government isn't your random seeker of borrowed money. It is the most powerful organization on the planet. It can crush any opposition--foreign...

If you had known that perhaps you wouldn't have shot your mouth off on that subject on your January 25, 2023 Morning Joe show.

    Free Beacon ^ | January 25, 2023 | Joseph Simonson and Andrew Kerr
    Amid the brouhaha over President Joe Biden’s improper retention of classified documents and concerns that his son, Hunter Biden, had access to them, a 2018 form on which Hunter Biden claims to have spent nearly $50,000 a month on rent surfaced from the presidential son’s abandoned laptop. On it, Hunter Biden lists his father’s Wilmington house as his address, raising questions about whether he was using rent payments to pass money to his father. The money, $49,910, was actually a reference to rental payment for a Washington, D.C., office space used by Hunter Biden. But the story of the document...

During the court hearing, Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney heard arguments in relation to potentially releasing the special grand jury’s investigative report, to which Willis said that the report’s release could impact her cases, therefore it shouldn’t be released, according to WSB-TV. The brief notes that the investigation "has been one of enormous public...

  • Gas Prices Set To Soar As Crack Spread Jumps On Tightening Fuel Supplies (Gasoline Prices UP 45% Under Biden, Diesel Prices UP 77%, Strategic Petroleum Reserve DOWN -47%)

    U.S. oil refining margins, also known as the 3-2-1 crack spread, jumped to a three-month high on Tuesday — and that’s an indication the country faces an ongoing product shortage that might lead to higher gasoline and diesel prices at the pump. The 3-2-1 crack spread is a great indicator to gauge fuel product tightness. High spreads indicate gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, and other petroleum products are in short supply, while low spreads mean an abundance of supply. Spread direction is also important — if rising, it would mean fuel inventories are declining. The simple calculation of refining margins is...

    The sky seems to be perpetually falling if you ask Democrats, journalists, and even some Republicans, and the current fiscal fight in the House seems to be no exception.Joe Biden and the Democrats are adamant that a clean debt ceiling increase has to happen or else the consequences will be dire. Mitch McConnell, the GOP leader in the Senate, is only telling reporters “We will not default.” But in the House, Republicans are poised to force a lengthy battle over the debt ceiling and potential cuts to the federal budget.That puts House Speaker Kevin McCarthy somewhere he may not be...

    Have legitimate concerns about the national debt? Well, you may just be one of those GOP “economic terrorists,” according to New York Times bloviator-in-chief Paul Krugman. Krugman’s Jan. 19 column spewed bile at GOP congressional members seeking spending concessions from President Joe Biden on the debt ceiling issue. “Don’t Try to Appease Economic Terrorists,” the headline read. Yes, Krugman actually used the word “terrorists.” [Emphasis added.] He sugar-coated the issue falsely claiming that raising the debt ceiling “simply allows the government to honor its promises, which include everything from paying interest on its debt to sending checks to Social Security...
