Facing A U.S. Anti-Corruption Push In Ukraine, Burisma Demanded Hunter Biden Call Dad
Post Date: 2023-09-30 01:16:07 by Charles_Byrd
Two days before Burisma bigwigs pulled Hunter Biden aside to call his father, the Ukrainian energy executives received a memorandum detailing the U.S.s plan to push Ukraine to implement recently passed anti- corruption reforms during then-Vice President Joe Bidens trip to Kyiv the following week. This Dec. 2, 2015, memorandum, which the House Ways and Means Committee released earlier this week, renews questions about Hunter Bidens phone call to his father just days before the vice president demanded Ukraine fire its top prosecutor. It also raises new concerns about whether the Obama-Biden administration provided special access to Hunter Biden- connected companies. Click ...

House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer followed through on his pledge to continue to follow the money on Thursday when he issued three subpoenas for the bank records of President Joe Bidens son, Hunter Biden, and brother, James Jim Biden. The latest round of subpoenas is part of House Republicans impeachment inquiry into the president and, according to Comer, will help the Committees determine whether Joe Biden abused his office by selling access and/or by receiving payments or other benefits in exchange for official acts.

US Refuses to Acknowledge Systemic Use of Torture by Its Armed Forces in Iraq
Post Date: 2023-09-30 00:52:21 by Charles_Byrd
Hundreds of Iraqi prisoners kept in US detention centers in Iraq, including the largest facility Abu Ghraib, endured various forms of torture and abuse by the US armed forces between 2003 and 2009. However, even after two decades, none of these Iraqis have been given any kind of redressal or compensation. The first major evidence was the leak of photographs from Abu Ghraib in April 2004, within a year of the occupation in March 2003 and the establishment of this detention facility in Baghdad. The photos as well as victims testimonies confirmed that various techniques of torture were used by US soldiers, including forcing detainees to remain naked, using dogs to attack them, as well ...
At the Brink?
Post Date: 2023-09-30 00:50:32 by Charles_Byrd
Despite Russian hints about the use of nuclear weapons in the war in Ukraine, consider it strange amid other world-endangering possibilities how little attention nuclear destruction gets anymore. And thats despite the fact that there are now nine (yes, nine!) nuclear powers on this planet, ranging from the United States, Russia, and China to Israel and North Korea. Still, at some point in your life, youve probably heard about the theory of nuclear deterrence embraced by so many in our military and those of other major powers globally. The idea is that nuclear weapons actually keep us all safe by their mere presence in the hands of those ...

British intelligence in the dock for CIA torture
Post Date: 2023-09-30 00:44:13 by Charles_Byrd
Recent developments raise the prospect that British intelligence agents could finally face justice for their little-known role in the CIAs global torture program. Britains foreign and domestic intelligence apparatus is facing scrutiny by a tribunal tasked with intelligence oversight. On May 26, Londons infamously opaque Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT) unanimously issued a landmark ruling which means the complaints of two Saudis brutally tortured at CIA black sites and jailed for years in Guantanamo Bay can finally be heard, at least behind closed doors.

The End of the Road for the Dollar
Post Date: 2023-09-30 00:39:48 by Charles_Byrd
With the Asian hegemons undoubtedly able to introduce gold standards, where does that leave the dollar? This article describes just how precarious the fiat dollars position has become. For now, the dollar appears to be buoyed up by rising bond yields. However, as they rise further portfolio losses for foreign investors are likely to increase, leading to dollar liquidation. It is not generally realised how many dollars and dollar securities are owned by foreigners, the bulk of them being held outside the US banking system. And the quantity of foreign currency owned by Americans to absorb this selling is very small in comparison. Click for Full Text!
Time to end the Fed and its mismanagement of our economy
Post Date: 2023-09-30 00:34:39 by Charles_Byrd
Every major economic downturn of the last 110 years bears the mark of the Federal Reserve. In fact, as long as the Fed has been around, it has swung the economy between inflation and recession. Yet Americans, surprisingly, have tolerated it. But we shouldnt expect that to go on forever. We had three central banks before the Fed and confined each to the ash heap of history. The problems inherent to central banking are cause to scrap the Fed as well. Click for Full Text!

FTC’s Amazon Complaint: Perhaps the Greatest Affront to Consumer and Producer Welfare in Antitrust History

The FTCjoined (unfortunately) by 17 state attorneys generalon Sept. 26 filed its much-anticipated antitrust complaint against Amazon in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington. Lacking all sense of irony, Deputy Director Newman, quoted above, bragged about the cases potential to do greater good than almost all previous antitrust lawsuits. A quick perusal of the FTCs press release announcing the suit reveals the basic claims the FTC will be making in court. While full details are set forth in the commissions formal complaint, the press release provides one sufficient reason to believe that this high-profile antitrust complaint is ...
Julian Simon: Expressing the Imago Dei in Economic Terms

Julian Simons name does not mean much to many Christians today, but it should. Since his death 25 years ago, those who follow the dismal science of economics continue to study him, but most of the rest of us

It’s the Beginning of the End of This Whole Phony Economy
Post Date: 2023-09-29 21:50:49 by Charles_Byrd
Interest rates continue to push relentlessly higher. As Peter Schiff explained in his podcast, thats a big problem when the entire economy is built on a foundation of cheap money. But most people in the mainstream dont seem to grasp the gravity of the situation. They dont realize that we are at the beginning of the end of this whole phony economy. In a nutshell, the economy is buried under trillions in debt. The cost of the debt is rising. The economy simply isnt built to handle an even moderately high interest rate environment.

With seemingly no end in sight to the self-inflicted migrant crisis, government authorities are now desperately searching high and low to find room for the more than one hundred thousand-strong migrant population that has New York ready to burst at the seams. In one move that has lawmakers from both major parties up in arms, the Biden administration is deliberately stepping over environmental regulations in order to set up a migrant camp of 7,500 adult men at a national park site in the Big Apple.

Review: Shiny Happy People Charts the Downfall of the Duggar Family
Post Date: 2023-09-29 21:43:57 by Charles_Byrd
The Amazon Prime Video documentary miniseries Shiny Happy People examines the Institute in Basic Life Principles (IBLP), a Christian fundamentalist group that became famous in the popular TLC show 19 Kids and Counting and its spinoffs. This miniseries is anchored to the 19-children-strong Duggar family and its multiple sex abuse scandals. But it also provides a comprehensive account of the rise and fall of the IBLP, the extreme patriarchy it prescribes, and its influence within evangelical Christian circles at the turn of the 21st century.
