  1. The Deep State isn't real. The Democrats are cheering it on in real time. This, what you see happening to Musk is exactly what is meant by Deep State.
  2. Shocking to no one......this absolutely confirms Roberts worked to actively find a way to make the ACA "work:" Clarence Thomas calls out John Roberts as Supreme Court edges closer to overturning Roe v. Wade Last week at a Dallas conference, Thomas took a surprising, public jab at Roberts. Thomas has long touted the good relations inside the court and avoided public criticism of colleagues. He might not always have embraced his colleagues, but he avoided letting any enmity slip. Thomas last week recalled the court atmosphere before 2005, when Roberts joined, and said, "We actually trusted each other. We may have been a dysfunctional family, but we were a family, and we loved it....." Thomas' remarks pulled back the curtain on the tensions inside. Perhaps they revealed long simmering sentiment for a chief who has wrenched relations over the years. Or perhaps they reflected the internal recriminations over who might be responsible for disclosing the draft opinion. Or perhaps they indicate that the apparent five-justice majority to overturn Roe is not so secure. It is not unusual to hear Thomas deride the court's traditional adherence to precedent, what's known by the Latin phrase of stare decisis. "We use stare decisis as a mantra when we don't want to think," he insisted in an Atlanta speech in early May. But Thomas' sudden aim at Roberts' leadership is new. In the Dallas appearance, his message to the chief justice came down to: The court was better before you arrived. As Thomas responded to a question about relations between justices, such as the celebrated friendship of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia, Thomas said, "This is not the court of that era." https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/20/politics/clarence-thomas-john-roberts-supreme-court-roe-wade/index.html I'm rooting for this to be reversed. Will likely lead to seccession ... because we're done here.
  3. Chicken wings for $34? Pent-up inflation driving food costs higher Consumer prices for food rose 9.4% in April compared with a year earlier, the biggest gain since 1981. With a gallon of milk up about 25% since before the pandemic, and retail bacon 35% higher, it’s hard to imagine how US food inflation could get any worse. But evidence suggests that even higher prices are on the horizon. Consumers have actually been shielded so far from the full brunt of soaring expenses that are facing producers, distributors and small businesses like restaurants. But they can only hold back for so much longer. Take the case of Jeff Good, who co-founded three restaurants in Jackson, Mississippi. Around 18 months ago, a 40-pound box of chicken wings cost him about $85. Now, it can go as high as roughly $150. Expenses for cooking oil and flour have nearly doubled in the past five months, he said. But it’s not just ingredient prices going up. He’s paying more for labor and services, too. Even the company that maintains his air conditioners has tacked on a $40 fuel charge per visit. To cope, he’s raised menu prices. https://www.ocregister.com/2022/05/18/chicken-wings-for-34-pent-up-inflation-driving-food-costs-higher/ Gas stations throughout Washington are reprogramming their gas pumps to allow for double-digit prices as some in the area are running out of gas, according to a recent report. One 76 Gas Station in Auburn, Washington, reprogrammed its gas pumps to “make room” for gas upwards of $10 a gallon, according to The Post Millennial. The move comes as gas prices continue to set record highs. On Thursday, national gas prices hit a record high for the tenth day in a row at $4.58 per gallon, according to AAA. This is more than $1.50 higher than the average price one year ago today, which was $3.04 per gallon. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2022/05/19/gas-stations-in-washington-brace-for-10-a-gallon-amid-gas-shortages/ He does. Annnnnd they don't care.
  4. Who knew? How could this be possible? More U.S. subprime borrowers are missing loan payments Consumers with low credit scores are falling behind on payments for car loans, personal loans and credit cards, a sign that the healthiest consumer lending environment on record in the U.S. is coming to an end. The share of subprime credit cards and personal loans that are at least 60 days late is rising faster than normal, according to credit-reporting firm Equifax _. In March, those delinquencies rose month over month for the eighth time in a row, nearing their prepandemic levels. Delinquencies on subprime car loans and leases hit an all-time high in February, based on Equifax’s tracking that goes back to 2007. Many people, including those with less-than-perfect credit, paid off debts and built up savings during the pandemic, a surprising outcome considering that lenders at first thought borrowers would default en masse when Covid-19 hit. The government’s response, including stimulus payments and child tax credits, boosted many families’ financial health. https://on.mktw.net/3sMwRwp All SELF INFLICTED BY BRANCH COVIDIOTS Existing home sales fell in April to the lowest level since the start of the pandemic Sales of previously owned homes in April fell to the lowest pace since the Covid pandemic started, according to the National Association of Realtors. “We are moving back to pre-pandemic sales activity, but I expect further declines,” said Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the group. Tight supply kept home prices higher, despite rising interest rates. The median price of an existing home sold in April was $391,200, the highest on record and an increase of 14.8% from a year ago. https://www.cnbc.com/2022/05/19/existing-home-sales-fell-in-april-to-lowest-level-since-start-of-pandemic.html But it's different this time! You vote for these people, you're officially mentally ill.
  5. Study Finds ‘Positive Correlation’ Between Higher Mask Usage And COVID-19 Deaths. The peer-reviewed study – “Correlation Between Mask Compliance and COVID-19 Outcomes in Europe” – was authored by Beny Spira, an Associate Professor at the University of São Paulo whose research focuses on the molecular genetics of microorganisms. Published in the Cureus Journal of Medical Science on April 19th, 2022, the paper describes its purpose as “analyz[ing] the correlation between mask usage against morbidity and mortality rates in the 2020-2021 winter in Europe. “Data from 35 European countries on morbidity, mortality, and mask usage during a six-month period were analyzed and crossed,” continued the study, which encompassed a total of 602 million people. “The findings presented in this short communication suggest that countries with high levels of mask compliance did not perform better than those with low mask usage in the six-month period that encompassed the second European wave of COVID-19,” Spira summarized. https://thenationalpulse.com/2022/05/16/study-finds-correlation-between-mask-compliance-and-covid-deaths/ They NEVER WORKED
  6. This was all done on purpose They all knew the consequences The Dems knew their boot licking branch covidians would believe everything they told them. What's that called..... mass formation psychosis? Someone get cancelled for suggesting that?
  7. No mention here about these efforts and maneuvers as a threat to the Republic. The media cheered these efforts on for 2 months and gave it all cover Russia Russia Russia!: "One by one, the Democratic lawmakers stepped to the microphone on Friday, holding on to their letters and an impossible dream: denying the presidency to Donald J. Trump, two weeks before his inauguration. And one by one, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. — presiding over a joint session of Congress to validate the Electoral College results in Mr. Trump’s victory — turned back their challenges with a stoic message, pounding his gavel without hesitation. “It is over,” Mr. Biden said at one point, as Republicans rose to their feet to cheer. After weeks of fitful grumblings about the long-shot maneuvers that might obstruct Mr. Trump’s path to the White House, the proceedings on Friday appeared to close the book. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/06/us/politics/democrats-attempts-to-deny-trump-are-rejected-in-joint-session.html The protesters on January 6th - not all many just saw it as a Trump rally - but im sure many were hopeful (they must have watched Ds in 2016) that it wouldn't be certified. Not sure how that's the downfall of the Republic all those Congressman have to answer to the voters - the voters have the final check. The Ozarks said they could be a problem.
  8. That wasn't my question. Aside from the 50 wackos that were allowed to walk in to the Capitol.......why were 99% of those protesters there?
  9. How inflation could help us save money — and the planet https://on.mktw.net/3lnEAge Send all these people to the ash heap of history. Inflation is actually good! I guess the "Putins price hike" mantra isn’t getting thru.
  10. So you object to trying to apply pressure on Congress in hopes of a last minute attempt to invalidate what they felt was a very rigged election?
