In the calculation of the Consumer Price Index (CPI), housing plays a significant role. However, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) does not directly include house prices in the CPI market basket. Instead, they focus on measuring changes in the cost of shelter for renters and homeowners. Here’s how it works: Rental Properties: For rental properties, the BLS considers cash rent paid to landlords (including utilities) and any government subsidies paid on behalf of tenants. They collect rent data for approximately 40,000 residences through personal visits or telephone calls.

One of the greatest fears of the communist leaders in Washington DC right now is that they will be convicted of their crimes and put in a DC gulag, the same place they've imprisoned innocent conservatives for peacefully protesting the corrupt election that put the Left in command. In fact, Hillary Clinton herself has claimed that Trump wants to "imprison" his political opponents, as the Left is currently doing everything they possibly can to imprison him, with ginned up charges and "crimes" they are committing themselves right now.

Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) said on this week’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Saturday Show” that if former President Donald Trump wins in November, there will be violence and “more killings.”

Host Jonathan Capehart asked, “How concerned are you about your safety if Donald Trump is re-elected?”

Waters said, “I’m very concerned, not only about my safety and not only about the safety of members of Congress. I’m concerned about the safety of so many people in this country, particularly people of color. Donald Trump has said that if he does not win, it is going to be fraud, and because it is going to be fraud, there will be blood in the streets. He threatens about a civil war, and he threatens there’s going to be violence. I would say all of this talk is motivational with many of those who are racist, who are sitting at home listening to him, and they are taking him up on his threats even before the elections take place. It is about thousands, maybe millions of people being threatened and being at risk because of Donald Trump and his desire to seek revenge on anything and everybody.”

She added, “I do believe having listened to Donald Trump so many times and having the attack, the insurrection that took place on the House of Representatives in Congress, on the Capitol, the Capitol grounds, we could be in for more killings like that. I think Donald Trump has to take responsibility for what he is saying about blood in the streets and violence if he is not elected to be the president of the United States of America.”

Claire's Observations:  Representative Waters, a word, please;  it is apparent that you have chosen NOT to view the entire video, because your characterization of it is entirely, completely, and fraudulently wrong.

And please remember, your BFF in Congress, Nancy Pelosi, cancelled the presence of the National Guard, for which President Trump had pleaded. https://cha.house.gov/2024/6/nancy-pelosi-contradicts-her-own-narrative-of-january-6-hbo-footage-shows  Apparently, you.... "didn't get the memo".. again, or you are lying through your teeth.  There is no middle ground here, Congresswoman Waters.

Let me explain to you, why I support Trump over Biden, even if I have to hold my nose here.

Under Biden, the country has expanded a 34 trillion dollar debt (a least as far as we know)

Under Biden, the Southern border to this country no longer exists; people are coming in with diseases the US medical community thought wiped out decades ago.

Under Biden, Homeless Vets are being thrown out of their housing to make way for these illegal immigrants.

Under Biden, cartel gangs and illegal drugs are flourishing in our inner cities, making life far more difficult for legal immigrants, and other families which live there.

Under Biden, we had the catastrophe which was the leaving of Afghanistan to the Taliban; and BTW, Congresswoman Waters, women are still being denied an education; as a great advocate for women's rights and education; why are you so damned silent on this issue?!?

And lastly, under Biden, we are enmeshed in two regional wars which could explode into world wars at any second.  We have the insanity of the Ukraine war against Russia, and Israel's insane  genocide against Gaza, which has already spilled into Lebanon, and threatens the entire Middle East.  

The city of Sidon, Lebanon, is getting the heck bombed out of it, courtesy of the IDF.  IF you remember your Bible Studies as a kid in school, you will know that this city is mentioned both in the Old and New Testaments, in fact 38 times to be exact.  

Whatever was left, in terms of its history and heritage, is getting bombed out of existence right now.

Where do you stand on this, Representative Waters?!?!?  I would really like to know your thoughts today on this!!

Vice President Kamala Harris has agreed to participate in a single debate against whoever former President Donald Trump selects as his running mate.

The agreement was reached after Fox News anchors Martha MacCallum and Bret Baier announced on Friday that their network had offered to host a VP debate.

“This is the Wild West of debate proposals. We put out a debate proposal for a presidential debate. It was accepted by former President Trump. Not accepted yet by the Biden camp in early October and now there’s a pitch specifically for the vice presidential debate that went out about half an hour ago to both campaigns, suggesting that in addition, the Fox News media has reached out to Virginia State University (VSU) as a possible location since it was selected by the Commission of Presidential Debates to be the first a historically black college or university to host a presidential debate,” Baier reported.

A previously censored paper from The Lancet has now undergone peer review and is available online.

The study, titled “A Systematic Review of Autopsy Findings in Deaths After COVID-19 Vaccination,” analyzed 325 autopsy cases and found that a staggering 73.9% of deaths were either directly due to or significantly contributed to by the COVID-19 vaccination.

The paper’s lead author, Dr. Nicolas Hulscher, faced significant opposition in bringing these findings to light. After initially being downloaded over 100,000 times, The Lancet removed the paper within 24 hours, according to Dr. William Makis. 

According to The Daily Sceptic, the reason given at the time was, “This preprint has been removed by Preprints with the Lancet because the study’s conclusions are not supported by the study methodology.”

A reclusive tribe in the Amazon finally got hooked up to the internet, thanks to Elon Musk — only to be torn apart by social media and pornography addiction, elders complain.

Brazil’s 2,000-member Marubo tribe has been left bitterly divided by the arrival of the Tesla founder’s Starlink service nine months ago, which connected the remote rainforest community along the Ituí River to the web for the first time.

“When it arrived, everyone was happy,” Tsainama Marubo, 73, told The New York Times.

“But now, things have gotten worse. Young people have gotten lazy because of the internet, they’re learning the ways of the white people.”

A Mossad surveillance team made quite a public spectacle of themselves on 9-11.

The New York Times reported Thursday that a group of five men had set up video cameras aimed at the Twin Towers prior to the attack on Tuesday, and were seen congratulating one another afterwards. (1)

Police received several calls from angry New Jersey residents claiming "middle-eastern" men with a white van were videotaping the disaster with shouts of joy and mockery. (2)

"They were like happy, you know … They didn't look shocked to me" said a witness. (3)

[T]hey were seen by New Jersey residents on Sept. 11 making fun of the World Trade Center ruins and going to extreme lengths to photograph themselves in front of the wreckage. (4)

Witnesses saw them jumping for joy in Liberty State Park after the initial impact (5). Later on, other witnesses saw them celebrating on a roof in Weehawken, and still more witnesses later saw them celebrating with high fives in a Jersey City parking lot. (6)

"It looked like they're hooked in with this. It looked like they knew what was going to happen when they were at Liberty State Park." (7)
