Thought for the day

"I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness. The dumbing down of America is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30 second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance." -- Carl Sagan, 1995, apparently having invented a time machine

As a right-wing faction threatens to tank his speakership ambitions, House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy delivered a promise: “I’ll never leave,” making clear he has no plans to drop out of the race even if the fight goes to many ballots on the floor.

“I’ll get 218,” McCarthy told CNN, referring to the votes he’d need to become House speaker.

But Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona, a conservative hardliner who is challenging McCarthy to be the most powerful member of Congress, doubled down on his commitment to stop the California Republican’s ascension.

Blackrock is saying to get ready for a recession like no other. 

We’ve been warned for some time.  The world is facing recession, the IMF declared.

The famous investor who made real money from the 2008 market disaster is warning about a recession in the US as well.  Michael Burry saw the 2008 disaster coming and he is saying it again.

Joe Biden told us we aren’t in a recession.  He says that it so it must be true, right?

So what really is going on?

According to one of the largest investment firms in the world, the economic outlook for the US and the world is not good for 2023.

Blackrock says a global recession is coming.

A worldwide recession is just around the corner as central banks boost borrowing costs aggressively to tame inflation — and this time, it will ignite more market turbulence than ever before, according to BlackRock.

The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis released its final report on Friday before Republicans take control of the House in the next upcoming Congress, providing new findings on how the Trump administration’s actions negatively impacted the U.S. response.

The report from the Democratic-led subcommittee, chaired by Rep. Jim Clyburn (S.C.), highlighted the Trump White House’s “failed stewardship over the pandemic
response and persistent pattern of political interference.”

Internal Twitter documents and communications published by the journalist Matt Taibbi have provided devastating detail on a sweeping censorship operation conducted by the social network. They expose the central role played by a senior FBI agent in potentially influencing the outcome of the 2020 US election. 

Immediate reaction to the Twitter Files was mixed, but overwhelmingly the mainstream American media has rushed to pour cold water on Taibbi’s bombshell disclosures, with, for example, The Washington Post branding them a “dud” and CNN claiming they “largely corroborated what was already known.”

Such responses are quite extraordinary given that the Twitter Files offers incontrovertible evidence of one of the largest, most influential global social networks taking extraordinary measures – usually reserved to prevent the dissemination of child pornography – to block information on its platform.

In particular, Twitter banned, both publicly and privately, the sharing of a New York Post article, based on the contents of a laptop owned by Hunter Biden, pointing to possible corruption on the part of his father, then-presidential candidate Joe Biden. The report reinforced existing concerns about Hunter’s role with Burisma, for which he received up to $50,000 per month from the Ukrainian energy giant over a five-year period for attending a handful of corporate events.

The material exposed by Taibbi shows that a decision was made by individuals at the highest levels of Twitter – with direct connections to Biden’s Presidential campaign – due to apparent fears the laptop contents had been hacked and/or had been released as part of a Russian information operation. This was despite there being zero evidence or even a vague suggestion that either was the case, and significant internal concerns.

The Twitter Files show how, among the top brass involved in the suppression of this hugely significant story was the social network’s legal vice president Jim Baker, a former FBI general counsel. He was coincidentally also fundamental to the Bureau’s multiple attempts to fraudulently concoct a link between Trump’s campaign and Russia, one way or another.

Former United States President Donald Trump sued former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and a number of her political allies on Thursday regarding charges of collusion with Russia made in 2016.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Florida, accuses Clinton, former FBI Director James Comey, White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, the Democratic National Committee and others of racketeering and fabricating alleged links between Trump’s presidential campaign and the Kremlin.

The lawsuit alleges Clinton and her cronies attempted to ‘hurdle Trump’s campaign for presidency’.

It specifically charges Clinton and her aides with attempting “to undermine Trump’s presidential bid through fabricating a scandal” through launching an “unfounded” federal investigation, and a “media frenzy.”

Under the guise of ‘opposition research,’ ‘data analytics,’ and other political stratagems, the Defendants sought to sway the public’s trust, the lawsuit claims.

For nearly 10 months the mainstream propaganda machine has been trying to convince the world that Russia is running out of advanced weapons, particularly precision-guided munitions (PGMs) which are essential in long-range strikes against strategically important targets controlled by Kiev. The Russian military is supposedly so desperate that it is expropriating washing machines, smartphones, laptops or any other devices with microchips in them so it could maintain its arms production. Such nonsensical claims would never be accepted by anyone remotely familiar with how military technologies work. However, they are an important segment of the information war aimed to present Russia as supposedly “backward” or “technologically challenged”.

In the end, the proponents of such claims only embarrass themselves as Russia has not just been quite consistent with using advanced long-range PGMs, but has actually started using even more of them, especially in recent months. This was also recently confirmed by none other than the New York Times, one of the flagships of the political West’s massive mainstream propaganda machine. On December 5, the NYT published a report titled “Russian cruise missiles were made just months ago despite sanctions”, revealing that the so-called “severe PGM shortages” in the Russian military are nothing more than a myth. According to the report, weapons investigators hired by the Kiev regime determined that “at least one Russian Kh-101 cruise missile used in widespread attacks there on November 23 had been made no earlier than October.”

The remnants of Kh-101 cruise missiles found in Kiev had components made months after the supposedly “crippling” Western sanctions were imposed against Russia. The political West promised its favorite puppet regime that the restrictions would halt Moscow’s ability to produce advanced weapons, particularly long-range cruise missiles such as the air-launched Kh-101 or the seaborne “Kalibr”. Yet, since then, hundreds of these missiles have been made and used by the Russian military, resulting in disastrous consequences for the Neo-Nazi junta’s strategically important infrastructure. The damage to the power grid under the Kiev regime’s control has severely degraded the logistics of its forces, further resulting in the erosion of their ability to fight.

I’m all about bringing home wrongfully detained Americans in foreign lands, particularly those countries that are clear enemies to the United States and our way of life. As readers may recall, just days before Russia decided to invade Ukraine, WNBA player Brittney Griner was arrested in Russia for allegedly bringing drugs into the country.

No doubt Ms. Griner’s demographics played a part in her being a target; as a black gay female American athletic star, she checks all the boxes regarding minority demographics elevated in America and generally treated terribly in Russia. Since her arrest and sentencing, the Biden administration has faced pressure to get this high-profile athlete home.

Finally, about ten months later, Ms. Griner is heading home to her wife and family thanks to a prisoner swap.

An excellent day for Brittney and her family, and arguably a fantastic day for Russia and the prisoner we traded her for. However, not such a great day for another American still languishing in the Russian prison system.

Dr. Anthony Fauci’s testimony in a federal lawsuit that accuses U.S. government officials of colluding with Big Tech to censor speech, “confirmed” that “social media companies want to control not only what you think, but especially what you say,” Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said on Tuesday.

Landry, along with Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, have sued numerous federal government officials for working with Big Tech to suppress speech online, including criticism of the official government position on masks, vaccines, and other COVID policies.

The attorneys general released Tuesday the results of Fauci’s deposition, which him saying “I don’t recall” 174 times, according to Landry’s and Schmitt’s news release. The press statement also revealed that Fauci’s daughter worked at Twitter as a software engineer until last year.

Fauci testified that he had never personally contacted a social media company to ask for content to be taken down. However, Fauci and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had 13 different conversations during 2020, according to information obtained during the lawsuit process.

He also testified that he was aware of the “concept of freedom of speech.”

Beyond celebration, however, their comments called for more, bigger attacks targeting critical infrastructure on U.S. soil. Experts told Newsweek that the attack in Moore County, North Carolina, as well as in similar previous attacks across the country, may only be the start of a more destructive campaign.

Prior to Saturday's attacks and in the leadup to the midterm election, Newsweek obtained documents demonstrating dozens of instances of radical groups and individuals sharing threats online against critical infrastructure sites across the nation, along with materials designed to advance such plots. Now, two new reports show how far-right communities, including neo-Nazis, reacted to the most recent sabotage.

The Moore County Sheriff's Office has yet to establish a perpetrator or motive in the December 3 attack, but initial suspicion has centered on right-wing backlash toward a drag show set to be held that same day at the Sunrise Theater in the town of Southern Pines.

It apparently took a slew of criticism for the owners of Blond Amsterdam, artists Femque van Geffen and Janneke Dröge, to recognize that they had made a faux pas. However, perhaps the word ‘recognize’ is not appropriate here because I am not sure they understand the problem.

They realized it was a problem, a business problem if not an ethical one (for them) when Twitter lit up complaining about their cynical misuse of the image of Anne Frank on their new line of crockery. There she was, smiling out from a cereal bowl, with her famous red diary in hand and matching rosy red cheeks. In case the diary was not enough to identify the girl, her name was written in large letters above her.

And there Anne Frank sat, among windmills, clogs, skates, tulips, the chocolate sprinkles the Dutch put on their toast, pancakes, and cheese. Anne Frank -- sold as a symbol of Holland. Ironic, noted Maartje Jansma in a Tweet, given that the Franks applied for Dutch citizenship in 1939 and were rejected.

Jewish overlord Jonathan Greenblatt of the Israeli lobbying group “Anti-Defamation League” sat for a very uncomfortable interview with black radio show The Breakfast Club on Wednesday, and made some astonishing statements.

The interview’s money shot was when Charlemagne tha God asked him if taking all of Ye’s wealth doesn’t prove the exact thing Ye was saying, and Greenblatt answered:

The insidious nature of anti-Semitism, and these trope about power, is that Kanye can say these things – “Jews have all the power, they’re controlling everything” – and if we don’t get him, if we don’t deal with that, the myth spreads.

One is truly left without words here.

Greenblatt is admitting that the Jews absolutely have the power to take everything away from the richest black man in history when he says “we” have to “get him.” But the reason Jews need to “get him” is that he is spreading a “myth” about the Jewish ability to get him.

What these statements prove is that Greenblatt is totally unwilling to begin the conversation that we are demanding. We are no longer asking for a conversation about Jewish control of everything. Everyone sees that, and it simply is not deniable at this point. What we need to talk about is the way the Jews use this incredible power they hold over American, Christian society.

It was a controversial headline that made the news, and now we’re finally hearing from Alex Jones. Read on to learn more about what he said during the epic interview with Steven Crowder.

The podcast starts by talking about several things, including transgender issues. Crowder details what testosterone does to benefit people, such as helping with healing from bone injuries. He goes on to point out the behavioral benefits, too.

The podcast discusses controversial topics, such as Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Hunter Biden laptop. They hilariously reference testosterone levels throughout the podcast. Then, they finally brought on Alex Jones. You can fast forward to the fifty-minute mark to see this podcast portion.

It starts with Ye’s controversial statements saying he loves Jewish people and Nazis, and Hitler. He further states that the facts of the Holocaust are inaccurate. This interview appeared on InfoWars on December 1.

 No contaminated food, beverage, medicine, or vaccination has ever been more deadly or caused more fatalities than the Wuhan virus jabs. Instead of reducing the surge of sudden deaths, the Fauci Flu injections have increased the surge of sudden deaths, and a government report PROVES the spike-protein-prion injections are to blame. As many Americans have died by lethal injection (Coronavirus vaccines) — that’s 6 million, in just the past two years — as Jews who died in the Holocaust. Are the Covid vaccines the new gas chambers?

It’s time to take an in-depth look at the secretive CDC report that reveals the statistics of the gene-mutation, vascular-clogging Covid death stabs. Pfizer-Gate is no conspiracy theory. Americans are dying at warp speed and hardly a vaccinated soul has any idea what’s really going on.

Attorneys representing the Missouri and Louisiana AGs in their case against the government have uncovered that the State Department was funding fact checkers possibly in the US.

TGP reported over the weekend that the FBI and DOJ were working with Big Tech to target conservatives.  This was recently confirmed, although we have suspected this of taking place for years.

The Gateway Pundit readers know that The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft is a co-Plaintiff, along with several doctors and a Louisiana news outlet, in Missouri and Louisiana lawsuit against the Biden Administration.  The AGs of Missouri and Louisiana are suing the Biden Administration (Missouri, et al, v. Biden, et al), the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, the DOJ, Jen Psaki, Anthony Fauci, Health and Human Services, Xavier Becerra, and other federal agents and agencies for colluding with Big Tech to censor Americans all across the nation.

That lawsuit, the most important First Amendment lawsuit in America in the past 60 years, has turned into a barn burner – but the good guys are actually winning this time.

In October, a Federal Judge ruled that even before the court decides the government’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit, Anthony Fauci and a number of other clowns, including former State Department Daniel Kimmage must sit for depositions and spill their guts.
