According to recent polls, Trump is beating Biden in several key swing states. These are states Biden won in 2020 and had been leading in the election polls leading up to the election.

Now, the script has been flipped. Trump is leading in states Biden has to win if he wants another four years in the White House.

But a bigger problem is brewing for Biden. As he loses many Mid-West states, another state is breaking away. According to polls from this year, Biden could face extermination in this normally “blue” state. And all the ad money in the world might not save him.

From Washington Examiner:
While the Keystone State remains very much in the toss-up column, it is slowly trending toward former President Donald Trump, who leads President Joe Biden by 2.3 points in the RealClearPolitics average of polls in the state. Trump’s lead was bolstered last week by a poll from Cook Political Report that showed him up by 3 points.

The Biden campaign is in a panic over the results in Pennsylvania — and with good reason. The state could decide the presidential race. If Trump holds all the states he won in 2020, wins the swing states where he is now decisively ahead, including Arizona (+4.1 in the RealClearPolitics average), Georgia (+4.0), and Nevada (+5.3), and captures Pennsylvania, he will return to the White House.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has suggested the United States is contemplating allowing Ukraine to use American-supplied weapons to directly strike Russian territory, given the changing dynamics on the battlefield in Ukraine. 

It's the first time a senior Biden administration official has indicated there could be a potential shift in policy. 

Until now, the U.S. had prohibited Ukraine from using U.S. weapons, like ATACMS missiles, to target Russian territory. 

But Blinken's comments align with recent statements from European officials who support Ukraine using Western weapons against Russian sites used for the invasion.

A Democratic lawmaker has delivered an impassioned plea to push through a bill to send pedophiles who buy sex with children to prison.

California State Senator Susan Eggman declared 'we have a moral responsibility to say, enough, enough' as she rallied the chamber to unanimous approval.

Antiquated state laws mean people who solicit underage prostitutes can only be charged with misdemeanors and only get two days in jail.

The bill SB 1414 would make it a felony punishable by two to four years in prison, a $25,000, and registration as a sex offender.

However, a group of rogue Democrats led by State Senator Scott Wiener watered down the bill in the Senate Public Safety Committee.

You're about to meet a group of New York University graduates with fresh degrees, likely burdened with a few hundred thousand dollars in debt unless their elite liberal parents footed the bill. Many companies are increasingly viewing woke degrees as liabilities rather than assets.

If these graduates are lucky—and don't end up as Starbucks baristas—they will have a bright and colorful future at some woke mega-corporation. There, they will be placed in non-productive managerial roles to advance destructive ESG and DEI movements.

It all starts at NYU classrooms indoctrination camps, where the kids are being uploaded the woke mind virus by activist professors. These kids are being brainwashed into not improving society but, in fact, being managers to spread wokesim to dismantle Western society.

In return, these corporations can out woke each other - and they have. Remember the Bud Light incident more than a year ago?

The brewer's pro-trans marketing executive nuked the brand by featuring transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney in a TikTok promotional ad in April of 2023, an attempt to score high brownie points with DEI & ESG indexes. Again, these woke degrees are not productive and are only a means to spread wokeism, which is at risk to the company's brand. 

The problem with these useless degrees is that they're based on a woke system. With an anti-woke tide sweeping the nation and wokeism falling apart, some degrees are worthless

In recent times, there has been growing concern over the valuation of the US stock market, with many experts warning that it is currently overvalued. This post delves into the reasons behind this assessment and explores the various factors contributing to the perceived overvaluation. By understanding the basics of what 'overvalued' means, analyzing key indicators, and examining historical instances of overvalued markets, we aim to shed light on the potential risks and consequences of an inflated stock market in the United States. Join us as we unravel the complexities of this pressing issue and delve into the implications it may have on investors and the broader economy.

Understanding the Basics: What Does 'Overvalued' Mean?

The term 'overvalued' refers to a situation where the current price of an asset, in this case, the US stock market, is believed to be higher than its intrinsic or fundamental value. In other words, the market price of stocks is considered to be inflated beyond what can be justified by the underlying financial performance of the companies.

To better comprehend the concept of overvaluation, it is essential to grasp the idea of intrinsic value. Intrinsic value represents the estimated true worth of an asset based on factors such as earnings, cash flows, dividends, and other relevant financial indicators. It reflects the underlying economic value of the asset, independent of market sentiment or speculation.

When the market price of stocks surpasses their intrinsic value, investors may perceive them as overvalued. This means that stocks are trading at a premium, leading to a potential disconnect between their market price and their actual worth. Overvaluation can occur in both individual stocks and the broader stock market as a whole.

It's important to note that the determination of overvaluation is subjective and can vary based on different valuation models and perspectives. While some may argue that the market is overvalued, others may believe it is fairly valued or even undervalued. Assessing overvaluation requires careful analysis of various factors and indicators, which we will explore in the subsequent sections of this blog post.

Factors Leading to Overvaluation of the US Stock Market

Several factors contribute to the overvaluation of the US stock market. These factors are complex and interconnected, creating an environment where market prices may exceed the intrinsic value of stocks. Understanding these underlying factors is crucial for comprehending the current state of the market. Let's explore the key factors leading to the overvaluation of the US stock market:

Bombs used in the Israeli strike on a displaced persons camp in Rafah that killed dozens of Palestinians have been identified as being manufactured in the United States, according to weapons experts and visual evidence reviewed by The New York Times.

Debris from the strike included remnants of a GBU-39 bomb, which is designed and made in the U.S. 

American officials have advocated for Israel to use the bomb, claiming it minimizes civilian casualties. 

Trevor Ball, a former U.S. Army explosive ordnance disposal technician, identified the bomb by its tail and unique bolt pattern. 

'I instantly knew the housing was a GBU,' Ball told CBS News. 'I've seen a lot of them in this conflict, and I've even gone back and looked at past conflicts just to get an idea of what ordinance Israel has used in the past when I started looking into this, and it's a very distinct object, the GBU. It's a very unique round.'

Historians and political scientists in the West have finally grasped that NATO’s post-Cold War expansion led to conflict in Europe, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said, adding that this expansion was driven by Washington’s “irresistible desire” to dominate the continent.

“Today, many historians and political scientists in the West express the point of view that their colleagues have been declaring for many, many years, maybe even decades. This is the fact that when the Warsaw Pact ceased to exist, when the Soviet Union extended its hand for unification with Europe, the US and the West as a whole on the basis of equality, mutual benefits and respect, no one dissolved NATO. And actually no one planned to,” Lavrov told a meeting of ambassadors in Moscow on Wednesday.

“Just yesterday, a famous US economist, political scientist Jeffrey Sachs, cited this mistake in an interview with [US journalist] Tucker Carlson,” Lavrov noted. “Now, we can confidently say that the irresistible desire of the US to retain control of Europe through NATO was the reason.”

A session of France’s National Assembly was brought to a halt on Tuesday after a lawmaker waved a Palestinian flag during a debate over whether Paris should recognize Palestinian statehood.

Sebastien Delogu, a member of the lower house for La France Insoumise (LFI), was suspended for 15 days and his parliamentary salary was halved for a period of two months. The politician was escorted from the chamber, while other lawmakers applauded him.

The incident occurred while Trade Minister Franck Riester was answering a question from another LFI member, seeking clarity on the French government’s position on Palestinian statehood, and calling for economic ties with Israel to be severed.

French President Emmanuel Macron's idea to allow Kiev to launch strikes on Russian territory is insane and could lead to a world war, Balazs Hidveghi, a Hungarian MEP and former Hungarian parliamentarian, said.

"Macron allows Ukraine to use French missiles to strike inside Russia. Yet another step towards a world war. We must stop this madness!" he posted on messaging platform X, formerly known as Twitter.

"In the European elections we must vote for leaders who seek peace," the MEP blogged, referring to the elections to the European Parliament due on June 6-9.

George Szamuely and Peter Lavelle discuss NATO's use of the cover of supposedly assisting Ukraine in order to attack strategic targets inside Russia such as its early-warning radar system, the purpose of which is to detect incoming nuclear missile attacks against Russia.

Webmaster addition: Long but making an important point that the real US/NATO agenda is war with Russia. As a side note, Russia has a space-based ballistic missile detection system similar to the one the US designed as part of the Strategic Defense Initiative, also called "Star Wars."

An inquiry conducted by the Israeli military says two Palestinian detainees, who were abducted from Gaza and transferred to the Sde Teiman detention facility in Israel, were subjected to physical assault and subsequently succumbed to their injuries.

The military disclosed that the fatalities occurred in March due to the physical assault of the two by Israeli soldiers following their abduction, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported on Tuesday.

The detainees were handcuffed and kidnapped from the Khan Yunis area in southern Gaza, and were en route to the Sde Teiman detention facility, dubbed "Israel's Guantánamo Bay". However, upon arrival, it was discovered that they had died.

The two Palestinians were illegally apprehended by the Israeli military on suspicion of their affiliation with the Palestinian resistance.

Alastair Crooke has done something I’ve never seen him do—update his most recent writings and conversations with a new column less than 48 hours later. His two previous writings and chat with Judge Napolitano are here and here. Today he wrote again at Al-Mayadeen,Walking the Precipice,” which I see Larry Johnson has mirrored at his website, too. It’s not just a reassessment, although it is in part. Rather, it’s a reassessment based on new information that’s just come to light as you’ll discover. IMO, if you were concerned at the end of Crooke’s chat with the Judge, you’ll be even more concerned now. And yes, this discovery has preempted what I had further planned to provide today and will become part of my afternoon work. Will Russia and/or China make any outward reaction to the new information?

Diverse European voices are desperately warning that with the Ukraine project spiralling towards débacle, a humiliated West is left with little choice but to escalate drastically, and bring NATO -- in some form, whether limited or not -- into the fight. 

The former British (Conservative) MP Andrew Bridgen states that this strategic shift (whose speed caught the Europeans unawares), is forcing Europe to face war with Russia. 

In fact, Bridgen warns: ‘We (Britain), are ‘already at war’ with Russia. This is the real reason, he explains, why Rishi Sunak has called an early election -- he refuses to be a ‘war time president’.  He is effectively handing over ‘the baton’ to Keir Starmer (probably to fly away to California after 4 July -- voting day). “The Generals” have warned Sunak that the order ‘had come down’ for war with Russia. And Sunak does not wish to be part of it.

Whether Bridgen is right or not on the specifics, there is undoubtedly a chorus out there saying the same thing. Is this cacophony of sudden war warnings merely that which (Matt Taibbi calls) an example of the ‘Elephant Erasure Project’?  By which we are constantly being instructed not to see the elephants in the room.

A volcano in southwestern Iceland has erupted for the fifth time this year. It is Sundhnukagigar’s most powerful eruption since the volcanic system became active three years ago.

The fiery spectacle began shortly after the end of an eight-week-long eruption that occurred between Hagafell and Stora-Skogfell on the same Reykjanes peninsula.

The lava fountains reached 50 metres (164 feet) high and the length of the fissure was about 3.4km (2.1 miles), the Icelandic Meteorological Office said in a statement.

Flights continued as usual at the capital Reykjavik’s Keflavik airport, according to the airport’s website.
