From early in 2020 until well into 2022, government officials in most countries imposed an array of draconian policies that were said to be necessary to protect the populace against COVID-19.

They also imposed numerous prohibitions, such as gatherings for religious, sporting, or cultural events, and even enjoying a day at the beach. Enforcement of all their dictates was vigorous, ...

Kids Are Stealing Hyundais and Kias. Government Officials Blame Hyundai and Kia—and TikTok.
Post Date: 2023-03-22 23:40:17 by Charles_Byrd
All across the country, young people are stealing cars and taking them for joyrides, including teenagers who don't have driver's licenses.

After four 75-basis-point increases in 2022, the committee approved a 50-point increase in December, followed by a 25-point increase in February, and another on Wednesday. Click for Full Text!

The US Has the World Setup for a Worse Financial Crisis Than in 2008
Post Date: 2023-03-21 19:03:06 by Charles_Byrd
There are two main avenues to a potential US financial crisis. Such a crisis, because of US financial dominance and because of the interconnections of globalism, which was a huge mistake for humanity, would be international. One avenue to crisis is the Federal Reserves current policy of raising interest rates. This policy follows many years of nearly zero interest rates in nominal terms, and negative interest rates in real terms. During these many years the financial assets banks accumulated on their balance sheets, such as bonds, pay a low rate of interest. When the central bank (Federal Reserve) raises interest rates, the values of the lower interest rate financial instruments ...

Post Date: 2023-03-21 19:00:14 by Charles_Byrd
Much has been said about the Iraq war and its failures over the last 20 years, including the roles of key decision makers like President Bush and Vice President Cheney. But what is perhaps not as well known is just how many people were involved in making it a reality. From White House staffers and senior officials, to allied think tank experts and prominent media figures, the Iraq war had many, many authors. We asked nearly two dozen experts, journalists, former government officials, and others, which individual outside of Bush or Cheney was the underrated architect and promoter of the war in Iraq, and why. Its important that we understand just how this ...
