Legions of European companies are succumbing to the final straw of Europe’s largely self-inflicted energy crisis. 

Bankruptcy proceedings in the Canary Islands, Spain’s heavily tourism-dependent island chain, soared a whopping 276% year over year in 2022, according to the latest data published by the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) in its report, “The Effects of the Economic Crisis on Judicial Bodies.” The archipelago also saw the highest rate of dismissal claims in Spain, with around 400 of every 100,000 inhabitants losing their jobs.

But this trend is not unique to the Canary Islands, nor indeed Spain. It is happening across large swathes of Europe’s economies, as legions of businesses succumb to the final straw of Europe’s largely self-inflicted energy crisis.

In the EU as a whole the number of bankruptcy declarations initiated by businesses increased substantially (26.8%) quarter-on-quarter in the fourth quarter of 2022, reaching the highest levels on record since Eurostat began collecting EU-wide bankruptcy data in 2015. The number of bankruptcy declarations increased during all four quarters of 2022. As the Eurostat graph below shows, at the current rate of business destruction it won’t be long before businesses are closing at a faster rate than they are opening.

Democratic representatives are scrambling in the wake of the potentially contagious Silicon Valley Bank implosion, looking for a way to divert attention away from them should the crisis expand.  

One avenue for scapegoating the event that has been suggested among Dems and the media is to blame a 2018 law that eased Dodd-Frank capital requirements for midsize and small banks.  Republicans led the effort to pass the law, which President Donald Trump signed, but 33 House Democrats and 17 Senate Democrats also voted for it. 

No mention, of course, of the cancerous exposure SVB had to numerous woke investments through venture capital, including money losing ESG related projects, climate change-based companies and World Economic Forum stakeholder capitalism projects.

The Dems have found their narrative, which is an old narrative:  “The conservatives did it.”

Joe Biden’s political utility and near senility serve as exemptions for his often sexist, racist, and creepy riffs...

Another couple of weeks, another bout of madness from Joe Biden and his team.

Of recent Biden delusions, consider:

Biden went off in one of his impromptu Corn Pop, or “beat-up-Trump-behind-the-bleachers” fables. These often slurred and nearly unintelligible tales characteristically virtue signal Biden’s own victimhood and “courage.” 

They are interspersed with his bizarre propensity for eerie female contact. So we see or hear of his long record of blowing into the ears and hair, or squeezing the necks of young girls. He hugs, for far too long, mature women. He can call out among a crowd an anonymous attractive teen stranger. Or, recently he relates an incoherent but quasi-sexual vignette. 

So Joe recalled his patient days in his usual off-topic “no lie/not kidding/no joke” manner (i.e., tip offs that he’s lying). He told us that a noble nurse once would “come in and do things that I don’t think you learn in medical school—in nursing school.” The president got a nervous laugh from the apparent quasi-pornographic reference (but then again Joe is excused because he is a “feminist”), before he detailed her technique:  

She’d whisper in my ear.  I didn’t—couldn’t understand her, but she’d whisper, and she’d lean down. She’d actually breathe on me to make sure that I was—there was a connection, a human connection.

The Fed/TSY/FDIC stepped in and saved the world again last night... but nobody told regional banks, whose shares are down dramatically today...

Admittedly off the lows of the day, but all with multiple trading halts today. FRC, WAL, and MYFW are the highest default risk banks in the Russell 3000 Banks Subsector, according to Bloomberg...

President Trump gave a speech from Iowa tonight on Education but he addressed other topics as well. 

Earlier today the President arrived and visited a local restaurant and then went to the arena where he spoke and where people lined up for hours to see him on this cold Iowa day.

President Trump promised to totally obliterate the DEEP STATE.  These crooks in the DOJ will be gone when Trump is elected.  He’s the only guy currently even talking about this very important issue.

The banking system appears to be melting down in the United States as Inter-Bank Liquidity has fallen to almost zero.

The chart below shows it:


What this means is that banks are NOT lending to each other; not even for overnight, or over a weekend!

When Bankers stop lending to EACH OTHER, there are gigantic trust issues.  The Banking system seems to be coming apart in real time, today.

The members of the heretical German Synodal Way have voted overwhelmingly in favor of a document replete with gender ideology that seeks to allow changing one’s listed sex on a baptismal certificate and paves the way for “transgender” priests. 

The text entitled “Dealing with gender diversity” was approved by more than 95% of all votes on March 11 during the fifth Synodal Assembly in Frankfurt am Main. Of the 58 German bishops, only seven voted against the text, while 13 abstained. As journalist Martin Bürger noted in a CNA Deutsch article, if the bishops who abstained had voted “no” instead, the document’s approval could have been blocked due to the required two-thirds majority for bishops. 

READ: No room for ‘inclusion’: Homosexuality and transgenderism are sins against nature itself 

The document stated that for intersex and “transsexual” Catholics, “it is made possible to omit the gender entry in the baptismal register or, as now provided for in German law, to enter ‘diverse,’” and that “[i]f the desire to change the gender entry arises at a later date, this is granted in an uncomplicated manner.”

A Sunday bank failure is an extremely rare occurrence.

Signature Bank failed on Sunday, marking only the sixth time a Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) bank failed on a Sunday, according to Bankrate’s analysis of FDIC data. It was also the first Sunday bank failure since 1991.

Chinese President Xi Jinping on Monday pledged to build his military “into a great wall of steel” as rivalry with the U.S. heats up amid fears of a new cold war.

The remark came Monday in Xi’s first speech since being sworn in for an unprecedented third term in office during the annual Chinese Communist Party meeting, the Washington Post reported.

Xi said he would “build the military into a great wall of steel that effectively safeguards national sovereignty, security and our development interests,” and added that “safety is the foundation of development, and stability is the prerequisite for prosperity.”

He said that the “Chinese nation’s great revival is on an irreversible path.”

President Joe Biden’s benefactors have lost the world, whether Russia wins or loses in Ukraine. This was a poignant message delivered by Fox News’s Tucker Carlson the other day. Forcing the Russians to act, and pushing them into unbreakable alliances with China, India, and Iran, Biden and Co. have almost overnight turned the United States into one great big meaningless banana republic.

I know, these are strong words, a dramatic revelation. But I and Tucker Carlson are not the only people on Earth who recognize what’s happening. The New Yorker just featured a piece entitled. “Russia and China Unveil a Pact Against America and the West.” February 7th, Moscow and Beijing declare their opposition to the further enlargement of NATO and the formation of other regional security alliances.

It’s America’s worst nightmare. Biden’s blundering, blustery policy toward Putin and Russia is a disaster for the dinosaurs clinging to their Cold War ideologies, and for the average US citizen who will end up devastated when our country has nowhere left to grow or go. Carlson quotes former President Donald Trump saying that “We will never be Russia’s close ally, but if Russia and China ally, we America will be in deep trouble.” And, so we are. The Fox commentator went on to point out that preventing such an alliance against the west, was former President Richard Nixon’s reason for going to China in 1972.

Thousands of Dutch farmers protested on Saturday against the government’s policies to reduce nitrogen emissions, warning they will put farms out of business and affect food production.

Hundreds of tractors from across the Netherlands could be seen driving to the event in The Hague ahead of regional elections this week, and more than 10,000 farmers were in attendance, according to the Reuters news agency.

Protesters accused the Dutch government of forcing farmers off of privately owned land in order to appease Brussels, and carried banners reading “No farmers, no food” and “There is no nitrogen ‘problem.'”

In a letter, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk asked the first lady "not to allow the use of real chicken eggs for the White House Easter Egg Roll but to choose instead reusable plastic or wooden eggs—or even lovely painted rocks or egg-shaped balls—all of which would last for years to come."

Devout Catholic Joe Biden, whose daughter wrote in her diary about him taking inappropriate showers with her, said in an interview with Comedy Central’s The Daily Show released Monday that state measures like the one in Florida protecting children from abusive transgender medical treatment are “cruel” and “close to sinful” and called for a federal law to be enacted to block those state laws.

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) Chair Rep. Richard Hudson pledges to go "on offense" in next year’s elections to expand the GOP’s razor-thin majority in the House of Representatives.

"We’re on offense. We’re not going to protect our majority. We’re going to grow our majority. I think this list is very realistic and I think we’ve got some real opportunities to pick up seats," Hudson told Fox News in an exclusive interview on Monday.

The list the six-term Republican from North Carolina referred to includes 37 target Democratic held seats that the House GOP re-election committee’s going to aim to flip from blue to red in 2024, in hopes of expanding their current extremely fragile four-seat majority. The list includes two open Democratic seats currently held by Reps. Katie Porter of California and Elissa Slotkin of Michigan, who are running for the Senate rather than re-election in the House next year.

A much-watched trial involving Jan. 6 defendants who are members of the Proud Boys organization came to a screeching halt late last week after an attorney for one of the accused leveled the accusation that the FBI had altered evidence in the case.

Dominic Pezzola, one of the defendants in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol breach trial, had the proceedings paused on Thursday after defense attorneys presented classified FBI messages in court. The defense attorneys claimed that the messages showed FBI agents discussing the alteration of evidence, The Epoch Times reported.

Pezzola is currently on trial for obstruction and conspiracy charges related to his involvement in the Jan. 6 Capitol breach. He was arrested on Jan. 15, 2021, and indicted the same month. The trial began in January of this year.

“There are a couple of emails between FBI agents casually discussing altering a document and destroying hundreds of pieces of evidence. It’s very disturbing and right now we have more questions than answers,” Roger Roots, an attorney at John Pierce Law who represents Pezzola, told the outlet in an email.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg was warned about his platforms' harmful effects on children and teens and decided to 'turn a blind eye,' new court filings show.

The statements, part of a lawsuit filed in February 2023, were redacted and recently unsealed, showing employees and engineers were aware of issues, Bloomberg reports.

The filing states Zuckerberg was personally warned: 'We are not on track to succeed for our core well-being topics (problematic use, bullying & harassment, connections, and SSI), and are at increased regulatory risk and external criticism.

Women and older people are being failed by our crash test dummies, according to the US Government Accountability Office. The GAO has just published a new report on the topic and is concerned that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not done enough to fill knowledge or research gaps that would make our vehicles safer for those more-vulnerable classes of occupants. Consequently, the GAO is recommending that NHTSA create a comprehensive plan to improve that crash test dummy data.

There's no question that cars today are safer than they were even two decades ago. In addition to the crash testing required by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FVMSS), programs like NHTSA's New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Top Safety Picks publicize their test scores, which has forced manufacturers to improve occupant protection to get those all-important safety scores, and now cars have to be designed to deal with offset collisions, side impacts, and rollovers, as well as head-on crashes.

Webmaster addition: Washington DC is full of dummies you could make use of!

House Republicans next week will pass legislation that gives parents the right to know what their kids are learning at school and the right to discuss education standards at school board meetings.

The Parents Bill of Rights Act is a response to growing anger across the country about access to information on everything from school curricula to safety and mask policies to the prevalence of gender ideology and critical race theory in the classroom.

In 2021, after a series of school board meetings in which angry parents were seen protesting various school policies, the National School Boards Association (NSBA) wrote a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland that suggested angry threats against school officials might be seen as "a form of domestic terrorism." That prompted Garland to release a memo in late 2021 that said the FBI would meet with law enforcement leaders to address the "disturbing trend" of violent threats against school officials.

While Susan Duclos had warned on Sunday that 'Black Monday' could be a wipeout for countless people across the planet as the Silicon Valley Bank collapse worked its way into being the 2nd biggest banking collapse in US history, we've got to take another look at that still breaking story from different angles, with both that story over at Coin Telegraph which reporting on how the Silicon Valley Bank failure is urging regulators to step in due to claims that nearly 40,000 of all depositors at Silicon Valley Bank are small businesses and how these bank runs are being used to lead to the 'new world order' and 'great reset.' 

With that Coin Telegraph story warning that Federal Reserve and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) decisions concerning the future of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) may affect regional banks across the United States, putting trillions of dollars at risk of a bank run, keep in mind that YOUR MONEY and the 'American taxpayer dollar' will be used by the govt when they 'move' to 'stop' this financial crisis, proving the overall point of Susan's March 12th story, once you deposit that money in the bank, it's no longer yours.

As the former Bridgewater executive and the CEO of investment firm Unlimited Bob Elliot expressed in a twitter thread on March 11th as was reported in this Coin Unlimited storynearly a third of deposits in the United States are held in small banks, and a whopping 50% are uninsured

“The FDIC insures small deposits in all the banks in the US, but that only covers about 9tln of the nearly 17tln of outstanding deposit base. [...] Under the hood the coverage rate is roughly 50% across most institutions while credit unions are higher (not above).“
