"Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one's self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all." -- Michael Rivero

Humanity’s best bet for success is liberty with responsibility, free markets and meritocracy. All things we are trying to preserve, and all things that leftists want to blow up.

After (unexpectedly) tumbling in March, existing home sales were expected to rise modestly (+0.8% MoM) in April. Analysts were wrong as March’s data was revised marginally up from -4.3% MoM to -3.7% MoM and April printed -1.9% MoM (a big miss). That left existing home sales down 1.9% YoY…

Stone artefacts and animal bones found in a deep cave in northern East Timor offer new insights into where ancient humans lived more than 35,000 years before Egyptians built the first pyramids.

Archaeologists from Australian and United Kingdom universities say thousands of stone artefacts and animal bones found in a cave, known as the Laili rock shelter, in the northern parts of East Timor, indicate ancient humans lived there some 44,000 years ago.

Many historians believe, as do I, that the happiest period of history in the Christian West was during the High Middle Ages within the towns that had grown up most notably within Germany, Italy, France, and England.

Probably the most accessible chronicle of what life was like then may be found in Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales.”

At the centers of these towns were the Gothic cathedrals which were both spiritual and technological hubs. Characteristic of the economic life of the era was the fact that the Church had outlawed usury. This was the key to personal freedom.

The dividing line between that era and our own came into being around 1500, when the German Fugger family persuaded the Pope to begin to allow usury, a practice which quickly spread.

This practice assured that, gradually, all the wealth of society would inevitably accrue to the bankers, especially when they gained the privilege of creating paper money or book-entry credits “out of thin air” and then lending it at interest.

This was the greatest crime of the ages.

It seems the tide is turning against Joe Biden. The liberal establishment was all-in for Biden’s campaign just a year ago. Democrats refused to legitimize RJK’s campaign, forcing him to run as an independent.

But a series of polls reveal that Biden is losing to Trump in must-win states. Biden continues to show that he is suffering from some kind of age-related decline.

With just months before the election, it is unlikely Biden will score major legislative wins to give him a boost (that is especially true with the Supreme Court and Republican-controlled House blocking his agenda). Biden’s own supporters may be losing hope. Just as this is happening, Trump makes a big announcement.

From The Post Millennial:
Former President Donald Trump and the Republican party out-fundraised President Joe Biden and the Democratic National Committee by almost $25 million in April. On Monday, Team Biden said they raised over $51 million for the month, far below the $76 million that Trump and Republicans hauled in…

“The only people left in America who support Crooked Joe Biden are out-of-touch billionaires in Hollywood, and it turns out even they are done giving to a failing campaign.”

For years Republicans have called on the Biden administration to take action and stop the migrant invasion at the U.S. southern border. The president could easily stop the overflow of illegal immigrants by forcing federal agencies under his authority to follow the law.

Biden and his Democrat allies don’t have the character to admit what they’ve done wrong and correct the problem. Instead, Democrats have tried to pin the problem on Republicans.

The latest liberal spin on the issue has the Democrat-controlled Senate trying to push through a bill that won’t solve the border crisis. Democrats hold a slim majority in the upper house and were hit with a dose of political reality when leadership tried to revive a dead border security bill. Republicans said the bill is dead before it reaches a vote.

Webmaster addition: The problem is the bill also includes more billions for Ukraine and the government has already wasted too much tax money on that failed adventure.
