Hordes of small and mid-size banks are now in trouble, and that is really bad news because those institutions issue most of the mortgages, auto loans and credit cards that our economy runs on. The other day, I asked my viewers to “imagine what our country will look like if the banking system implodes and the economy plunges into a depression”, because if our banks continue to collapse that is precisely where we are headed.
JPMorgan Chase & Co analysts estimate that the “most vulnerable” U.S. banks are likely to have lost a total of about $1 trillion in deposits since last year, with half of the outflows occurring in March following the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank.
There are more than 4,000 banks in the United States right now, and the vast majority of them are rapidly losing deposits.

As we reported earlier, a staffer for Rand Paul was brutally attacked in broad daylight in Washington, D.C. on Saturday and the news just broke on Monday, after Sen. Rand Paul announced it in a statement.
The staffer was walking down the street with a companion less than a mile and a half from the U.S. Capitol, when the suspect, Glynn Neal, 42, who was hiding in a corner allegedly “popped out of the corner and proceeded to stab (the victim) multiple times,” according to the police statement on the matter.
The staffer and the companion were able to take the attacker to the ground. The police arrived and found the staffer collapsed and bleeding, and suffering from stab wounds. He was taken to the hospital with “life-threatening” injuries, according to Fox 5 DC.
On Tuesday, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) introduced a War Powers Resolution that would direct President Biden to remove armed forces from Somalia that is cosponsored by Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) and Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL).
The resolution would mandate the removal of all US armed forces from Somalia, with the exception of embassy security, within 365 days of the bill being adopted. The resolution is privileged, meaning the House will have to vote on the measure within 18 days.
The introduction comes after Gaetz grilled Gen. Michael Langley, the head of US Africa Command (AFRICOM), about the pattern of the US military training African coup leaders.
The mom of the transgender school shooter who murdered six people including three nine-year-olds at a Nashville private school said 'I think I just lost my daughter' - as her own calls for increased gun control emerged.
Norma Hale spoke to ABC News shortly after her daughter Audrey Hale, 28, was named as the shooter.
She said: 'It's very, very difficult right now. I think I lost my daughter today.' Norma then requested privacy as her family struggles to cope with the magnitude of her late daughter's actions.
An anomalous magnetic region in the South Atlantic Ocean is growing, according to data that appeared in a government report published earlier this year.
The South Atlantic Anomaly is a location in the southern Atlantic where the innermost portions of the natural zone of energetic charged particles encircling Earth, known as the Van Allen radiation belt, makes its closest approach to the planet. The resulting outflow of energized particles produces a higher yield of ionizing radiation detectable by satellites orbiting Earth.
The anomaly is one of the components monitored by several international government agencies that comprise the World Magnetic Model (WMM), a “spherical harmonic model of the Earth’s main magnetic field and its slow temporal change.”The model is produced by the U.S. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the U.K. Defence Geographic Centre (DGC), based on information developed by the British Geological Survey (BGS) and the U.S. National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), which is responsible for monitoring the largest set of archives containing information on atmospheric, oceanic, coastal, and geophysical data from the surface of the Earth, as well as from below its crust extending down to the planetary core.
The problems that currently plague banks and the financial system at large will continue for at least another year to a year and a half, warned Moody’s Analytics Chief Economic Mark Zandi, adding that “things are going to start to wobble and break” in the coming days.
Banks are so overleveraged and in the red for their derivatives shenanigans that each subsequent rate hike by the private Federal Reserve banking cartel adds that much more pressure on their books. Meanwhile, inflation is still soaring because in order to really get a hold on it, interest rates would need to be hiked a whole lot more.
But doing that will sink the system, so the Fed is stuck between a rock and a hard place. One thing is for sure: they are going to try to do whatever it takes to prevent the big boys from losing and the little guys from winning, which typically means more financial pain for everyone at the grocery store and the gas pump.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is blasting Democrats who deliberately "tarred" a Republican congressman with claims he led a "surveillance" mission through the Capitol before the Jan. 6 events, even though the evidence at the time confirmed their claims were wrong.
In an interview with Just the News, No Noise, McCarthy said the fact the Democrats' special partisan committee regarding Jan. 6 made the false claim against Rep. Barry Loudermilk, of Georgia, makes him doubt many of the committee's statements.

Although ChatGPT is better at refusing to comply with input requests that are potentially harmful, users have found ways around OpenAI's content filter system. Some have made it spit out instructions on how to create a pipe bomb or crack cocaine, for example. Netizens can ask ChatGPT to learn about how to commit crimes and ask it for step-by-step guidance.
