Rather than having up to $20,000 forgiven as Biden vowed in August, the fed-up debtors remain among the more than 45 million borrowers who owe a total of $1.6 trillion in federal student loans. The average undergraduate borrower leaves college with nearly $25,000 in debt, according to a Department of Education review, and payments often start six months out of school when cash can be especially tight. As a result, roughly 16% of all borrowers are currently in default, federal data shows.
Google and other giants of internet technology played a major role in preventing a “red wave” in last week’s 2022 midterm elections, according to research spearheaded by American Institute for Behavioral Research psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein.
For months, many on both sides predicted that Republicans would sweep into strong majorities in both chambers of Congress in response to President Joe Biden’s unpopular handling of numerous issues; instead, the GOP barely won a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives and failed to wrest the Senate from Democrat control.
Epstein, a prominent tech researcher, wrote Tuesday in TheEpoch Times that “almost no one is looking in the right place” for the correct explanation, and that Big Tech is in fact expanding the reach of “rumors and conspiracy theories” about it to divert attention from itself.
At a time when Musk is cutting hundreds if not thousands of workers on a weekly basis, early on Friday Europe delivered some unexpected news to the world's richest man: according to Thierry Breton, the EU’s internal market commissioner, Musk will have to increase the number of moderators in Europe, a continent which long ago gave up all pretense of having free speech.
“He is in the process of reducing a certain number of moderators, but he will have to increase them in Europe,” Breton told Franceinfo in an interview, Bloomberg reported.
Breton added that Musk “will have to open his algorithms. We will have control, we will have access, people will no longer be able to say rubbish.”
Germany may face a meat shortage and a subsequent surge in prices within the next four to six months, Die Welt reported this week, citing the German Meat Industry Association (VDF).
“In four, five, six months we will have gaps on the shelves,” Hubert Kelliger, the head of group sales at meat marketer Westfleisch and a VDF board member, told the news outlet.
According to Kelliger, the worst shortages are expected in the supply of pork. He says Berlin insists on reducing the number of livestock by half in order to protect the climate. However, experts say this would lead to mass shutdowns of meat-producing companies, which in turn would result in a 40% increase in the price of meat.
Remember the scene in the movie Top Gun: Maverick, Captain Pete "Maverick" Mitchell is piloting the SR-72 "Darkstar" hypersonic plane and slams the thrust lever for the engines all the way forward. The engines ignite in a fiery blast that propels Maverick to Mach 10.
The propulsion system centered around the SR-72 Darkstar (a plane that is only a concept) is a turbine-based combined cycle, which merges a turbine engine with a ramjet.
While there is no aircraft in the production stage with this insane propulsion system, ground-testing testing is underway.
Hypersonic airplane developer Hermeus Corporation tweeted a video on Thursday of one of these engines transitioning from "turbojet" mode to "ramjet" insane mode.
Clinical trials that found therapeutic medications ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine were ineffective Covid treatments were funded by defunct crypto exchange FTX.
Amid the Covid pandemic, the FTX Foundation, helmed by now-infamous FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, bankrolled a clinical trial study group known as Together.
TogetherTrial.com homepage proudly displays FTX Foundation Group as its primary funder.
Together ran trials that purportedly aimed “to identify effective repurposed therapies to prevent the disease progression of COVID-19.”
“Can we use existing medications to treat people with early diagnosed COVID-19?” the Together group was supposedly tasked with figuring out.
Together investigated several medications which were being touted as possible low-cost Covid remedies, among them anti-parasitic drug ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine.
One such large-scale multi-author study published by Together in the New England Journal of Medicine looked at whether ivermectin could be effective at preventing Covid-19 hospitalization.
The study’s conclusion claimed: “Treatment with ivermectin did not result in a lower incidence of medical admission to a hospital due to progression of Covid-19 or of prolonged emergency department observation among outpatients with an early diagnosis of Covid-19.”
People across Buffalo, New York, and the surrounding metro areas are waking up Saturday morning to snowmageddon that dumped between 5-6 feet of snow over the last few days.
The latest from the Weather Prediction Center warned extreme snowfall "will produce near zero visibility, very difficult to impossible travel, damage to infrastructure, and may paralyze the hardest-hit communities."
An insane amount of snow was dumped on Highmark Stadium, where the Buffalo Bills play, situated in Orchard Park, New York, in the Southtowns of the Buffalo metro area. The newest reports recorded 77 inches or about 6.5 feet.
"Can you imagine 60-70 inches of snow in 24 hours!? That 66" in Orchard Park (where the Buffalo Bills play) could be verified as a 24-hour record for New York State. (The U.S. record is 75.6 inches in Silver Lake, Colorado on April 15, 1921.)," meteorologist Matthew Cappucci tweeted.
Here's what people in Western New York state woke up to this morning:
US megadonors have jumped ship leaving former president Donald Trump high and dry following his official announcement of candidacy for the 2024 presidential election.
The Hillreported on Saturday that billionaire Republican donors were abandoning Trump's side after the far below expectations of last week’s midterm elections, dealing a serious blow to his fundraising prospects.
Trump could face a surprising problem as he mounts his 2024 campaign: a cash crunch as wealthy megadonors gravitate toward Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and other potential contenders, The Hill pointed out.
Webmaster addition: It's a chance for ordinary American people to reclaim their control over the political process!
Democratic operatives are reviving a partisan watchdog group to “investigate the investigators” and hound House Republicans who are preparing congressional investigations into the Biden administration.
As flagged by Barstool Sports, Qatar just pulled one of the greatest “bait-and-switches” of all times by pulling the plug on beer being sold at the stadium roughly 48 hours before the World Cup is set to kick off in the Islamic nation.
Donald Trump announced a new plan during his Presidential campaign announcement on Tuesday in Mar-a-Lago. Should he win, Trump plans to enforce the death penalty on those who push deadly drugs like fentanyl into our communities. Trump is tough on crime, and there is nothing tougher than the death penalty.
“‘Every drug dealer during his or her life, on average, will kill 500 people with the drugs they sell, not to mention the destruction of families. But we’re going to be asking everyone who sells drugs, gets caught selling drugs, to receive the death penalty for their heinous acts.” Trump said.
Some politicians once considered among former President Donald Trump’s top allies have either turned on him or are holding back their support as the 45th commander in chief gears up for a third White House bid in 2024.
Why is Big Pharma investigating their own covid vaccines for myocarditis side effects if the vaccines were already supposedly tested and proven safe and effective?
Both Pfizer and Moderna have announced that they will be undertaking studies to determine the longer term risks of Myocarditis (an inflammatory condition of the heart which can lead to death) for people who have been injected with the mRNA based covid vaccines. The decision comes after the release of multiple medical studies which show a correlation and causation between the vaccines and an exponential increase in heart problems, specifically among men 40 years old and younger. Only a year ago the link between covid vaccinations and myocarditis was widely denied.
Studies also show that myocarditis risk increases with the number of boosters a person has taken.
Judicial Watch announced today it received 345 pages of records from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), a component of the U.S. Department of Defense, revealing that the United States funded anthrax laboratory activities in a Ukrainian biolab in 2018. Dozens of pages are completely redacted, and many others are heavily redacted. The records show over $11 million in funding for the Ukraine biolabs program in 2019.
The records were obtained in response to a February 28, 2022, Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Defense Threat Reduction Agency for records regarding the funding of Black & Veatch involving work of any manner with biosafety laboratories in the country of Ukraine.
A damning report from a government watchdog finds the U.S. squandered $145 billion in Afghanistan over 20 years in a futile effort to impose Western democracy and values on a population it didn’t understand.
North Korea fired an intercontinental ballistic missile that landed near Japanese waters Friday in its second major weapons test this month, South Korea and Japan said. The missile had the potential to reach all of the U.S. mainland, according to Japan's defense minister.
The United States quickly condemned the launch and vowed to take "all necessary measures" to guarantee the safety of its own mainland and of allies South Korea and Japan.
At the regional APEC summit in Bangkok, Thailand, Vice President Kamala Harris called Friday's launch a "brazen violation of multiple U.N. Security resolutions" that "destabilizes security in the region, and unnecessarily raises tensions. We strongly condemn these actions and we again call for North Korea to stop further unlawful, destabilizing acts. On behalf of the United States, I reaffirm our ironclad commitment to our Indo-Pacific alliances.
The story of the scam that was FTX is going to be epic when discovery takes place for all of the upcoming trials.
In the meantime, here are some of the latest facts about this crypto Ponzi exchange:
There is a lot more to this story, and it intersects with all of the usual Cult players, from BlackRock to the CIA to the WEF and various “nonprofit” slush funds, et al.
I have been warning for a long time now to stay the hell away from all centralized exchanges, and never ever leave your wealth parked with them. If your blockchain assets are not decentralized and not held by you, then you are missing the entire point and purpose of crypto.
How allegedly sophisticated hedge funds and investors at this stage of the game keep falling for these centralized crypto scams is truly baffling.
However, what is not surprising in the least is that the Democrat party is one giant grifting operation along with their totally illegitimate Federal government waging a full spectrum soft war on We the People.
One day it’s the DEATHVAX™, another day it’s a gargantuan crypto scam.
