Predictably, Janet Yellen says since FTX collapsed, we MUST regulate crypto; thoughts about Hegelian dialectics; the unlikely billionaire; Bezos thinks recession likely; election news; and more.
Yet in Michigan, no gains were made in the Supreme Court and of course the governor, AG and SoS. Plus, our legislature shifted to Democrat led. So for the first time in 40 YEARS, in the middle of record inflation, after effects of shutdowns and Covid mandates, Afghanistan, illegal immigration, etc. the Dems control the government. How is that even remotely possible?
Buy local and/or buy small too whenever and as often as you can ..... even just doing it a few more times than you do now .... it all adds up and helps move money from the big guys and gals to the smaller operations. I really think even a small shift of money to local and/or smaller operations may bring surprising power back to the people and to the big guys and gals so that they can tell the federal government and the World Economic Forum to bug off because it is hurting their bottom line. *** Update added .... I forgot about the cash issue ... love the comment on using cash more often ... doesn't have to be a big change .... little changes by even a small percentage of people really add up (just ask any PTA/PTO leader :) ) ..... every time I use cash, I love that it is more money that stayed with the local and/or small business and less money for the big credit card processers who seem to have such a big influence on our federal government. Definitely worth the extra effort to go to the bank to get cash I think. Thanks everyone for the encouragement!
Cocaine Mitch took money from FTX. 2.5 million per disclosures uncovered so far. I’m sure he is not the only UniParty member on the take. Just sayin.
Thank you for your support of Kari Lake. I’ve been volunteering on her campaign since day one. This is an unfair and consequently devastating and unacceptable loss for we the people of Arizona and this country.
There is so much more to this FTX thing than we can even imagine. This company was formed in 2018. In 2019, they were at $89M. In 2020, they were more than $500M. In 2021, they were more than $1.2B. And then reach over $10B in 2022?? That seems like Clinton math to me. Remember when Hillary invested $10,000 and it ‘became’ $100,000? 😳
I don’t know anyone on this planet who could grow a company that fast and that large without lots and lots and lots of help, nefarious ways and over the top deceit.
I listened to a podcast describing all this and how deep this runs. It’s worth a listen if you have the stomach for it.
AS DISTASTEFUL THE GAB GUY CAN BE, HE IS RIGHT ABOUT THIS:
The Path Forward: Build and Balkanize
"Voting harder isn’t going to cut it. We have to build. The existing system will collapse. It’s not a matter of if, but when. When that happens we need to have Christian infrastructure in place to fill the power vacuum. The Amish have had it right this entire time. Their communities are growing and thriving. They will continue to do well. We must become a form of neoamish, building sovereign communities and families away from Babylon. Technology is okay and a good tool. It’s something we can use to our advantage to communicate, build, and engage in commerce with one another.
We are the new pilgrims. We must move to deep red states, push them further right, build, and secure a future for our families. Forget politics at the national level. That rigged game is over. Focus on state and local elections, not what is going on in DC.
Conservatism has failed. It has been trying to conserve a country and a culture that is never coming back and has long been gone. The future of the West depends on those of us who are going to build. Build our own infrastructure, our own families, our own communities, our own parallel economy, and our own strongholds of deep red states. We’ll build a wall around the borders of those states if that’s what it comes to. We need to accept exile from Babylon and get to work."
The anger and disappointment with what’s going on in AZ (and in our own government) is only tempered by my trust and faith in Almighty God. So much corruption and deceit. Katie do-nothing Hobbs has been smug throughout the election cycle while anyone could see that Kari Lake is the far better candidate. I see our country as a nation in decline. But God has a plan and I’m keeping my eyes fixed on Him. Meanwhile I pray for truth, righteousness and justice and that we will all join in the fight between goodness and morality vs. evil and depravity.
I still have a hard time understanding why Trump potentially running gets people excited. He's part of the problem. Anyone that pushes the clot shots is wholly unqualified and should be in prison.
As I remember from 2020 doing a recount is useless. You will only be recounting the same fraudulent ballots. A forensic audit needs to be done.
It's not enough to call out what they are doing with FTX. I realized, watching a football game the other night, that *every single ad*, whether it's from an NGO, a PAC, a PSA, or supposedly "private" businesses desperate for ESG approval, is an ad for D talking points. Every one. Conservatives and thoughtful people will say, "look at this bs, Alinsky couldn't do it better," but they aren't loud enough with the counter-narrative. Unless people understand WHY it is bad to let the government regulate crypto, they just won't care. What are the best talking points that might resonate outside of the echo chamber, and how might they be conveyed?
'They' (who ever 'they' are) are going to take over the country by running incompetent politicians who don't have to campaign but magically win; set up a gigantic investment company run by people who admit they suck at math, play online games all the time, and are drug addicts, so they can regulate a market segment the way they want.
It sounds like a crazy plot, and yet, here we are, living it.
Sad state of affairs all around....pray, people, pray!
I think we need a defacto secession. Move to deep red states, force separation from the federal gov't using 10th amendment, Constitutional federalism, and refusing all federal money. Create a separate morality-based society. Create a coalition of federalist states to work as a defacto federal gov't.
Add to that money and banking separate from the U.S. gov't. North Dakota has an independent, state-owned bank. A handful of states allow use of gold and silver as money. We need this in every deep red state.
If we can see 100% of the key swing contests in blue counties all take 5-7+ days to count "votes" until finally 100% of the liberals have just enough votes to win, and the courts refuse to correct the policies that do not meet state legislated requirements, we need to remove our obligations to the federal gov't. Good riddance!
Sam Bankbreaker-FriedBrains is more like a computer guy from South Park, not Jurassic Park. There, FIFY.
This whole deal looks like a laundromat: Dummy investor cash in, wash thru crypto, rinse in Ukraine, speed-dry in the DNC's coffers.
Thank you Jeff, I really appreciate your take and ability to make sense of the current circus that is Earth politics in today's age. Thank you for all you do!
I'm glad Kari Lake is going to fight this, but 2020 proved that recount's of the same fraudulant ballots are useless & a waste of time. Especially if they usethe same machines to do the recount. They need a forensic investigation. A human hand done recount inspecting each ballot with human eyes. No machines !!!!
