Like many of the virus’s hardest hit victims, the United States went into the COVID-19 pandemic wracked by preexisting conditions. A fraying public health infrastructure, inadequate medical supplies, an employer-based health insurance system perversely unsuited to the moment—these and other afflictions are surely contributing to the death toll. But in addressing the causes and consequences of this pandemic—and its cruelly uneven impact—the elephant in the room is extreme income inequality.

How big is this elephant? A staggering $50 trillion. That is how much the upward redistribution of income has cost American workers over the past several decades.

This is not some back-of-the-napkin approximation. According to a groundbreaking new working paper by Carter C. Price and Kathryn Edwards of the RAND Corporation, had the more equitable income distributions of the three decades following World War II (1945 through 1974) merely held steady, the aggregate annual income of Americans earning below the 90th percentile would have been $2.5 trillion higher in the year 2018 alone. That is an amount equal to nearly 12 percent of GDP—enough to more than double median income—enough to pay every single working American in the bottom nine deciles an additional $1,144 a month. Every month. Every single year.

Rachel Maddow spouts off HERE! Although she has nothing but vitriol for the “far right” and for Republicans, somehow she can find no “far left” with which to contend. MSNBC and Maddow do not conceal their bias, and you have to wonder how many people listen to this drivel and give it a shred of credibility? Probably all the people who’ve been thoroughly indoctrinated with government education and government controlled media! What percentage of America’s population today has been educated by the government? Maybe about 95%? Remember, the government will not teach you anything they don’t want you to know. Therefore, they teach reliance upon the government which is known as socialism or communism.

California Governor Gavin Newsom’s $20 minimum wage law, which took effect on April 1, has resulted in the loss of nearly 10,000 jobs in the state’s restaurant industry. Struggling franchises have been forced to cut labor and increase prices to survive the costly wage hike, leading to mass layoffs and a decrease in consumer spending.

Tom Manzo, president and founder of the California Business and Industrial Alliance, criticized state lawmakers for living in a “fantasy land” when they believed that minimum wage increases would benefit workers and businesses. He revealed that since the law took effect, nearly 10,000 people in the restaurant industry have lost their jobs, stating, “California businesses have been under total attack and total assault for years. It’s just another law that puts businesses in further jeopardy.”

Well-known fast food chains, such as McDonald’s, Burger King, and In-N-Out Burger, have had to raise prices to compensate for the increased labor costs. Many were forced to reduce employee hours, and some even transitioned to automation. Manzo pointed out that fast food is meant to be a “starter industry” for young workers to learn good work ethic, not a long-term, high-paying job.

A recent CNN segment has drawn criticism for suggesting that MAGA Republicans are spreading conspiracies by stating that the United States is a “republic.” CNN’s Donie O’Sullivan interviewed author Anne Applebaum, who claimed that America was founded as a democracy. This statement contradicts the historical fact that the U.S. was established as a Constitutional Republic, as evidenced by Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution.

The Founders intentionally rejected a pure democracy to protect individual liberties and avoid mob rule, preferring a system with checks and balances. Critics argue that CNN’s portrayal of this terminology as a conspiracy undermines the fundamental principles of American governance.

CNN Special Correspondent Jamie Gangel faced backlash and deleted her post after public scolding. Despite this, the clip continued to circulate, causing widespread concern among viewers. Applebaum’s assertion that there is little difference between a republic and a democracy further fueled the controversy.

Webmaster addition: 

Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution states:

"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."

This clause ensures that each state within the Union operates under a republican form of government, meaning that power is derived from the consent of the governed, exercised through elected representatives.

You would think the folks at CNN had never recited the Pledge of Allegiance!

An upstate New York midwife pleaded guilty on Monday to federal fraud charges for her role in giving out thousands of COVID-19 immunization cards to people who never received the vaccine, prosecutors said.

Kathleen Breault, 66, of Cambridge, admitted in Brooklyn federal court that she destroyed more than 2,600 coronavirus vaccines and issued a corresponding number of fraudulent vaccination record cards while working at Sage-Femme Midwifery from 2021 to 2022.

The Albany facility was an authorized site for COVID-19 vaccine administration at a time when many government agencies and private companies were requiring their workers to be immunized against the virus.

Nationwide will cancel coverage for about 100,000 animals across the country, with the nation's biggest provider of pet insurance citing the escalating cost of veterinary care in axing the product in some states. 

The canceling of thousands of coverage plans starts now and will continue through next summer as part of the company's efforts to "maintain long-term viability and profitability," Nationwide said Friday in a statement.

"Inflation in the cost of veterinary care and other factors have led to recent underwriting changes and the withdrawal of some products in some states — difficult actions that are necessary to ensure a financially sustainable future for our pet insurance line of business," it stated.

I have included a few articles below that exemplify the copious lies in the media but this is a tough topic. It’s depressing to read the blatant examples of crass disinformation.

It is sad to see what lowbrows write and enforce the laws that control us. It’s like being in a prison with knuckle-dragging sadists as your keepers.

But the good news is that lies are all they have left. Their coming come-uppance will have to be colossal – something to look forward to.

On March 1st, 2024, Elon Musk tweeted on his social media platform ‘X’ referring to an ABC TV news report,

“People, who get their news from legacy TV, live in a fake alternate reality.” (‘legacy’ = the long-lasting impact of particular events, actions, etc. that took place in the past) 

For much of the past week, Western TV News has featured a Second World War anniversary ‘Glorious D-day’ celebration hailing the U.S., British Commonwealth and Canadian amphibious invasion of France on June 6, 1944 as leading to the defeat of Nazi Germany.Political leaders praised the veterans still alive as having successfully fought for ‘freedom!’ Estimated Allied Forces D-day casualties were about 10,000, with 4,000 confirmed dead. [1]

It is agonisingly sad to imagine those, who got killed on D-day following orders to wade forward into the firing line of German gun emplacements, but living in true reality would mean knowing that the Russians, (who were not invited to the D-day celebrations), had, at great human cost, already defeated Germany the year before D-day, during the cataclysmic battles of Stalingrad [2] and Kursk [3] in February and August of 1943, and were by D-day 1944 pushing toward Berlin liberating Nazi concentration camps on the way.

The BRICS countries, as well as several other states that attended the Swiss-hosted summit on Ukraine did not sign a joint declaration on the results of the talks on Sunday, according to the signatory list.

Earlier in the day, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said that the text of the declaration had been finalized and that Kiev’s positions had been taken into account.

The list of countries that signed the final declaration was displayed by the organizers on the screens of the press center at the Buergenstock resort where the summit was held. The document was signed by 80 countries out of 92 present, but Armenia, Bahrain, Brazil, the Holy See, India, Indonesia, Libya, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, South Africa, Switzerland, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates did not sign it.

The new law will automatically register all males between the ages of 18 and 26.  Selective Service will notify in writing every young American male that they have been registered and will prescribe regulations which can require the registrant to provide “date of birth, address, social security account number, phone number and email address….”

There are members of Congress who advocate that young women also be included in any draft, which could bring to 32 million the number of Americans of draft-eligible age.

Given the conversation on cable news over the weekend, it behooves us at the Breitbart Business Digest to again explain that Donald Trump's proposed tariffs are not necessarily inflationary, and the people telling you that they are are partisan hacks with no credibility on the matter.

It all (re-)started over the weekend when ABC's Jonathan Karl, an anti-Trump activist who has accused the former president of waging “an assault on truth," spoke with Biden's Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen about the former president's prosed tariff scheme – for all of about five seconds.

'Right now, we need a leader who exudes power and strength... We need to bring back excellence, merit, and love for America. We need to reign in all this craziness.'

Breaking news: Conservatives believe in marriage and babies more than liberals do.

This is not exactly a groundbreaking observation. But a recent Pew survey made news last week when it revealed that the political divide over having a family is not just real — it’s spectacular. It’s enormous. There is a full 40-point difference between the two sides on this issue!

“The percent of Trump supporters who say society is “better off if people make marriage and having children a priority is 59%, compared to 19% of Biden voters.” Just 19 percent!

With the end of the criminal trial in Manhattan, the lawfare against former President Donald Trump has now come to a halt. 

The criminal cases against Trump in Georgia, Florida, and Washington D.C. are delayed while motions and appeals are pending. It is highly unlikely any of these cases reach trial before the November election. 

Following his conviction in New York last month, President Trump is still awaiting his sentencing hearing on July 11. 

Here’s the latest information you need to know about each case.

'They are cheap fakes video. They are done in bad faith,' she said.

Jean-Pierre was further pressed over a video last week showing Biden freezing during a Juneteenth concert on the White House lawn.

'The president stood there listening to the music and he didn't dance.'

'Excuse me, I did not know that not dancing was a mental..was a health issue,' she fired back. 'That is a weird thing to actually flag.'

Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach announced Monday he is suing pharmaceutical giant Pfizer for misleading Kansas residents about the safety and efficacy of its COVID-19 vaccine.

During a press conference in Topeka, alongside Deputy Attorney General Fran Oleen and Assistant Attorneys General Kaley Schrader and Melanie Jack, Kobach detailed the allegations lodged against Pfizer.

“Pfizer made multiple misleading statements to deceive the public about its vaccine at a time when Americans needed the truth,” said Kobach.

The complaint, lodged today in Thomas County District Court, accuses Pfizer of misleading Kansans about the vaccines’ risks, including potential harm to pregnant women and the risk of myocarditis. The suit further alleges that Pfizer falsely claimed its vaccine was effective against COVID variants, despite evidence to the contrary.

In late September the Zionists will once again advance their cartoon version of history by means of Hollywood, their “court” of first resort. Tinseltown is the ideal venue for projecting fantasies disguised as historical truth and trying and convicting heretics and dissidents. The target in question is English historian David Irving, author of more than 20 best-selling history books and the leading military historian of National Socialist Germany.

In the year 2000 he brought to trial a libel suit in London against Deborah Lipstadt, a dreary thought cop from Emory University in Georgia who has made it her life’s work to dream up a new category of heretic (“Holocaust denier”), reflective of the hysteria and megalomania of the religion of Holocaustianity, of which she is high priestess. The hobby horse of one obscure professor soon became a marching order for the media of the entire western world. The story behind that chilling Orwellian perversity is itself deserving of a book-length study.

Thanks to Deborah, many writers and historians now bear the career-withering “ holocaust denier” stigmata, branded both by new media (Google search engine, Wikipedia) and the senile print media. Imagine if every atheist who was a chemist, astronomer, geographer, novelist or sculptor, who did not believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead, would have to endure going through life perpetually branded by the media as a “Resurrection-denier”?

Multiple North Korean soldiers have been killed or injured in a landmine explosion inside the Demilitarized Zone as South Korea fired warning shots early Tuesday morning.

The South Korean military said it fired the shots to repel North Korean soldiers  who temporarily crossed the rivals' land border for the second time this month.

They said an estimated 20 to 30 North Korean soldiers, while engaging in unspecified construction work on the northern side of the border, crossed the military demarcation line that bisects the countries at around 8.30am local time.

The North Korean soldiers then retreated after the South broadcasted warnings and fired shots, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said, adding that they did not see any suspicious activity after.

Titanic director James Cameron has slammed OceanGate for its lax approach to building the ill-fated Titan submersible that imploded last year. 

The world held its breath for 96 hours last June as the US Navy, the US Coast Guard and the Canadian Coast Guard launched a complex mission to find the doomed vessel before the five inhabitants ran out of oxygen. 

The Titan sub was built by OceanGate, a startup founded by CEO Stockton Rush, who tragically perished along with the four other people onboard when it imploded hours after it set off on June 18 2023. 

But Cameron, best known for directing the hit film Titanic, claims OceanGate knowingly cut too many corners, and unnecessarily risked the lives of the people who paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to travel to the wreck of the Titanic.
