On Friday I released my first portfolio update of 2024, examining how my 24 stocks I'm watching for the year have performed thus far on their own and compared to the S&P 500.

I also updated a bit of my macro thoughts and tossed around a couple of new ideas for the year (one potential black swan and one new name I’m buying): Trading The Shit Show: February 2024 Portfolio Review

Last weekend I also appeared on the “What Bitcoin Did” podcast to lay out my thoughts on Bitcoin even further. You can catch that full interview here.

As I’ve noted, last week was definitely the week of a bit of a bitcoin mea culpa, which is to say I publicly talked about bitcoin for the first time in a long time - while my subscribers know I have been buying the crypto (in small size relative to my gold miner positions) since late 2022 at prices around $16,500. Back in late 2022 I said I was going to read The Bitcoin Standard and do more research on it, but I never did

From emails and photos to sworn testimony and FBI documents, the House impeachment inquiry has meticulously established that Joe Biden met in person with many of his son's large foreign clients, including Russian, Chinese and Ukrainian business executives.

That evidence mounts as lawmakers try to debunk the president's claims he had nothing to do with his family's business. 

"Hunter Biden offered nothing of value to any of these foreign nationals. The only thing he had a value was his father, who was the sitting vice president of the United States and someone that they hope would be president someday," House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer told the "Just the News, No Noise" television show Tuesday night after an explosive impeachment inquiry interview earlier in the day with former Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski. 

Asked how many of the large foreign clients who paid Hunter Biden's businesses millions did not meet with his father, Comer answered: "I haven't found a single person."

You’re probably familiar with Johnson & Johnson family products. I remember using it as a child and well into my teen years. But what I, and many people to this day didn’t know, was that their products contain cancer-causing ingredients.

Although Johnson & Johnson labels their bath products as being “baby safe,” they have recently faced lawsuits and public outrage over their baby products and the ingredients they use.

Questionable Ingredients

The Environmental Working Group, a non-profit environmental research organization, describes the dangers of the ingredients used in Johnson & Johnson products. These ingredients include quaternium-15 and 1,4-dioxane.

Quaternium-15 is a formaldehyde-releasing preservative, and well-known carcinogen that causes burning sensations in the eyes, nose and throat; watery eyes; wheezing; nausea; and skin irritation. Daily exposure is linked with leukaemia and brain cancer.

In fact, the North American Contact Dermatitis Group considers quaternium-15 to be among the most clinically significant contact allergens in children.

Other formaldehyde-releasing chemicals used by Johnson & Johnson include DMDM hydantoin, imidazolidinyl urea, and diazolidinyl urea.

1,4-dioxane is another carcinogen that causes vertigo upon inhalation, as well as drowsiness, headache, anorexia, and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and lungs. It also causes skin irritation upon contact. This chemical is also a by-product of ingredients like PEG-100 stearate, sodium laureate sulphate, sodium myreth sulphate, polyethylene and ceteareth-20.

The State of Texas has launched a lawsuit against Pfizer and its drug manufacturer, Tris Pharma, after evidence revealed the companies sold ADHD medication to children even though they knew the drug was ineffective and caused brain damage.

The suit, filed by Attorney General Ken Paxton in the Harrison County District Court, claims that Pfizer knowingly distributed a drug used for treating (ADHD) to children on Medicaid – despite the drug’s extremely harmful side effects.
