Tour de Farce – “Molière would never be short of material today. The great mystery continues at the Tour de France. The fittest men on the planet are dropping like flies.” – Good Citizen

Failing to learn from history – ” And letting the same charlatans force you to repeat it” – El Gato Malo

The United States Does Not Have an Economy – “The US financial sector has long looted other countries. A number of participants have described the process. First a country is enticed with bribes to the leaders to take out loans that cannot be serviced or repaid. Then in comes the IMF. Austerity is imposed on the population. Public services and employment are cut to free resources for debt service, and public assets are sold to repay the loan. Living standards fall, and US corporations take over the country’s economy. American finance is now applying this technique to Americans. Contrary to the narrative in the financial press, the Federal Reserve is not raising interest rates in order to fight inflation. The Federal Reserve’s rise in interest rates is just a continuation of its policy of concentrating income and wealth in the hands of the One Percent. Quantitative Easing was the cloak for the Federal Reserve to print $8.2 trillion in new money which was directed or found its way into the prices of stocks and bonds, thus enriching the small number who own most of these financial instruments.” – Paul Craig Roberts – AND THAT IS THE BIG PICTURE OF WHAT THE FED REALLY DOES!!!!!!!!

How Pfizer Profited From the Pandemic – “The COVID-19 pandemic has been a real boon to Pfizer. Not only has it doubled Pfizer’s annual revenue, it has also given the drugmaker unique weight in determining U.S. health policy — something that concerns even staunch vaccine-pushers like Dr. Paul Offit Pfizer’s revenue in 2021 was $81.3 billion — approximately double that of 2020 — and the COVID shot accounted for $36.78 billion of that” – Dr. Joseph Mercola

As Mask Mandate Looms, LA Hospital Officials Mock COVID “Media Hype” – “Spellberg kicked off the duo’s ridicule of Covid fearmongering with an exasperated description of the Covid situation: “It’s just the same. It’s not changed. It’s been the same. It’s like…two months of the same.” He backed up his characterization with charts depicting county cases and the hospital’s own Covid admission data. We’re just seeing nobody with severe Covid disease…NOBODY.”” – Tyler Durden

The Last Days of “Joe Biden” – “It’s like our country is trapped on one of those swirling carnival rides beloved of the county fairs… only, the felonious mutt who runs the ride has nodded off in a fentanyl delirium with the motor running at maximum speed…  Some terrible midsummer accident-of-state has befallen the USA Carnival, and most are too dazed to know it. Whose idea was it to send the wind-up doll president called “Joe Biden” to Saudi Arabia? I can just imagine what went on in the chamber in private with “JB” and MBS (Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman), virtual autocrat of the oil-soaked desert land. The American visitor muttered something about wanting an ice-cream cone before dropping into a catatonic thousand-yard stare. I think we have witnessed “Joe Biden’s” final appearance at any world-stage event. He can do no more for the Party of Chaos. It has done what it can to wreck the joint with him as the pretend head-of-state” – James Howard Kunstler  – ANOTHER GREAT READ FROM MR. KUNSTLER!!!!!

All the President’s Phlegm – “The coughing, sputtering occupant of the White House tells us a lot about what the parasitic “ruling class” has in store for us. The installed occupant of the White House, Slow-Joe Biden, coughed and sputtered (but did not stutter) his way through a Middle East trip that had foreign audiences laughing (at America) wherever Manchurian Joe’s one-man senility show took a wrecking ball to what’s left of America’s credibility.” – J.B. Shurk

What is Adam Schiff Hiding? – “Schiff tucked an amendment into the National Defense Authorization Act that would prohibit any evidence collected in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act from being used in investigations. Why? The amendment’s timing, like everything else related to the infamous Russian collusion huckster, evidence forger, and nude photo seeker (to name a few of Schiff’s special talents), is highly suspect. Why would Schiff need to outlaw evidence collected unlawfully? Why is Schiff relying on this relatively arcane statute passed during Reconstruction that is rarely, if ever, enforced?” – Julie Kelly

Biden and The Destruction of Wisdom – “The Biden regime is decoupled from both the past and reality, and quite capable of destroying Americans’ lives as they have known them.” – Victor Davis Hanson

Inflation Has Now Devoured All Biden’s COVID ‘Rescue’ Checks- “When he signed the “American Rescue Plan” into law in March 2021, President Joe Biden bragged about how it would put “$1,400 checks into the pockets of millions of Americans; help to keep folks in their homes; help to put food on the table.” What he didn’t tell the public was that the rampant inflation his “rescue” plan would unleash would cost Americans more than the $1,400 Biden was handing out. Much more.” – I & I Editorial Board

A good guy with a gun stopped an armed bad guy on a murderous rampage – “This is the counternarrative to the Democrats’ insistence that law-abiding Americans should be disarmed. Even with the best will, training, and resources in the world, unless police are already on the scene when a shooting starts, there will be a lag time between the shooter’s control over the scene and the police’s arrival. The only thing that can change the dynamic during that interval before the police arrive is a legal gun owner willing to act. That’s what happened in Indianapolis, when a man started shooting in a shopping mall, killing three people and injuring two others, only to be stopped dead by an armed citizen.” – Andrea Widburg

Anti-Gun Activist Rages After Good Guy With a Gun Drops Mass Shooter in Indiana – “Logically, there is simply no downside to having a real “good guy with a gun” present at the scene of a mass shooting. Will that person always take the shooter out? Of course not. But having the possibility, even if it’s only a coin flip, is a lot better than having zero chance to take the shooter out before they cause maximum damage.” – Bonchie

Who Will They Get to Do the Tyrants’ Dirty Work? – “We have seen the systematic weaponization of law enforcement against normal people under the Biden dorktatorship. The FBI has become the personal Stasi of the Democrats, seizing elderly men with SWAT teams, while the DOJ has been selectively prosecuting conservatives, or those believed to be conservative-aligned, but giving a pass to those terrorists, rioters, and scumbags aligned with the trash donkey political party. Even local law enforcement is getting into the act in some places – a heroic bodega worker stabbed a multi-felon convict to death before the criminal could beat him to death in New York. Now he’s facing a murder charge, though the stiff should have still been in jail. But normal people are slowly coming around to see that. The FBI is not Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., chasing bank robbers, mob bosses, and commies but, rather, that satanic-looking Peter Strzok weirdo trying to frame the enemies of Hillary. ” – Kurt Schlichter

There’s only one New Yorker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fights for: herself – “Since she’s been a powerful national voice for almost four years, you would think she could make herself useful to her constituents. Instead, all she does is make a spectacle of herself. Her Instagram account, with more than 8 million followers, consists almost entirely of close-up images of her pretty face and rants about perceived slights to her good self, along with the occasional makeup lesson.” – Miranda Devine

Greg Abbott’s ‘publicity stunt’ busing illegals from Texas to Washington, D.C. … is working – “Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser appeared on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday to discuss the persistent homelessness problem plaguing her city. Host Margaret Brennen brought up a Washington Post report that suggested homeless shelters are now being filled with illegal immigrants being bused in from Texas and Arizona. It’s all fine when it happens to someone else. But being a member of the swamp elites, she just doesn’t want it in her backyard.” – Monica Showalter

Hunter Biden and the corruption of the liberal media – “The MSM’s continued downplaying of the Biden scandals is now the biggest scandal of all. Fake news about Trump carries more weight than real news about the Bidens in today’s messed-up media.” – Brendan O’Neill

War With Iran – “The United States, Saudi Arabia and Israel, responsible for military fiascos, hundreds of thousands of deaths and innumerable war crimes in the Middle East, are now plotting to attack Iran.” – Chris Hedges

Ukraine in the time of Covid – “Can we trust “horizontal conflict” in the post-pandemic age? The biggest mistake the elites made with the scamdemic was to let us see what good buddies they really are, because this instantly and inadvertently presented the 99.9% with a shocking and previously quite carefully hidden reality about the true nature of power and geopolitics. And a great deal of the legacy media’s energy has long been devoted to helping to conceal the reality of the “big (supranational) club” that we ain’t in. Until, that is, the recent huge error of judgement by the world’s leaders when they chose to abandon the carefully maintained “horizontal divisions” narrative in favor of some New Age, New Normal narrative of “international solidarity and co-operation to beat the virus”. They were clearly going for some “Independence Day” type hug-fest psychic effect. Humanity falling into each other’s arms and deciding to work together in WHO-created mutual New Normal benevolence to defeat an invisible enemy that will, of course, never be defeated. It did not go over as planned. ” – Catte Black – GOOD ONE FROM CATTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NYT Continues To Report ‘Strikes On Civilians’ That Somehow Happen To Hit Military Targets – Moon of Alabama

US Implies Ukraine Can Use HIMARS Against Russian Targets in Crimea – “The State Department on Sunday implied that Ukrainian forces are allowed to use US-provided High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) against Russian targets in Crimea, which Russia has controlled since 2014. When the US first announced it was sending HIMARS to Ukraine, Biden administration officials said they received “assurances” from Ukrainian officials that the rockets won’t be used to target Russian territory. When asked if the ban on Ukraine using the HIMARS to target Russian territory applies to Crimea, a State Department spokesperson told Antiwar.com, “Crimea is Ukraine.”” – Dave DeCamp

Cosmic Information Transducers – “What the heck is life for? I don’t mean that in the existential meaning-of-life sort of way, although maybe this will end up going there. I mean it in the much more specific sense of, what is the actual function of biological life? Some would say that’s a meaningless question, like asking ‘what is a rock for’? Life doesn’t have a purpose, it just is, it’s just there, doing its thing. At one level that’s very true, more or less tautologically and universally true. It’s also boring so I’ll just leave that line of thought there so I can play with more amusing toys.” – John Carter

5 Big Lies About Precious Metals Investing Exposed – “Unfortunately, investors must often navigate through a barrage of fake news, myths, misinformation, and fraudulent pitches surrounding precious metals before arriving at the simple truth. You don’t buy bullion to get rich quick. You buy it to preserve wealth over time against the threats of currency depreciation and financial crisis. Opting for common, low-premium bullion products that sell close to spot prices is the most efficient way to invest. That’s precious metals investing in a nutshell. But if you listen to financial and monetary establishment mouthpieces, you’ll likely be misled.” – Stefan Gleason
