ECONOMICS: Biden buys votes with student loan forgiveness


Somebody Has to Pay for Student Loan Forgiveness
August 24, 2022 by Michael Maharrey

*** begin quote ***

President Biden is expected to announce student loan forgiveness on Wednesday (Aug. 24). The plan will reportedly cancel $10,000 in student loan debt for anybody making less than $125,000 per year.

A lot of people think this is like waving a magic wand — poof — the debt is gone. But somebody has to pay and that somebody is the American taxpayer.

Nothing the government does is free. Ultimately, student loan debt forgiveness will add to the already massive budget deficit. That means Uncle Sam will have to borrow more money that taxpayers will have to repay, either in higher taxes or the inflation tax.

And we know who all pay — the Taxpayers.

The economy will have more inflation to deal with and the moral hazards keep piling up!


POLITICAL: Politicians should only be able to take contributions from within their district


Billionaires Spend $3 Million Against Trump-Endorsed Kelly Tshibaka, Lisa Murkowski’s Opponent
Wendell Huseb 22 Aug 2022

Billionaires from the L.I.S.A. super PAC have donated nearly $3 million against Trump-endorsed Alaskan Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka, the opponent of establishment and pro-impeachment incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK).

L.I.S.A, which reportedly stands for “Leadership in a Strong Alaska,” only backs one candidate, Murkowski. The main PAC contributors are hedge fund managers Ken Griffin, John Arnold, and Louis Bacon, who, respectively, contributed $1.5 million, $500,000, and $50,000. “James and Kathryn Murdoch, the politically moderate heirs to the Murdoch media empire, have each given $250,000,” Forbes reported:

They’re the deep-diving YouTubers who claim to have found missing California teen Kiely Rodni in less than a full day of looking — even after authorities spent nearly 20,000 man-hours failing to find her.

Adventures With Purpose started searching Prosser Creek Reservoir on Sunday — and within hours found what they believe is the 16-year-old’s 2013 Honda CRV with a body inside.

“WE JUST FOUND KIELY RODNI,” the volunteer group claimed on Facebook, ahead of local authorities confirming that the body was indeed the teen who went missing after a nearby graduation party on Aug. 6.

The various agencies of Gooferment bragged about how much effort they put into the search.  Only to “eat crow” when private citizens found her in less than a day.

I guess it all depends upon your motivation, tools, and training.

TINFOILHAT: an email exchange about Conspiracy Theories and my Taxonomy and Ruler

As a matter of curiosity, FJohn, have you kept a count over the years of how many predictions by conspiracy “exposers” have ever actually turned out to be accurate? On a percentage basis, maybe?

No, I haven’t.  But, it is IMHO surprisingly high.  For example, I blog under the heading of “tin foil hat” all the ones I hear about.  For example, TWA flight 800 was probably shot down by a Navy frigate by accident.  It was covered up by the Navy and the various Gooferment agencies.  Of course, it was dismissed as “yet another conspiracy theory”.  Just recently, after some number of years, credible testimony comes out that it was the Navy.  Now, of course, no one will formally admit that it was.  I guess too many lawsuits by the families and all the “tin foil hats” that were intimidated and disparaged.  Here’s a screen shot of the many blog postings I ranted about. 

Now granted that is just one example, but there are many many others.  That’s why a lot (half?) the country doesn’t believe the Gooferment, politicians,  bureaucrats, the media, or “celebrities’.  “I wouldn’t believe you, if your tongue came notarized.” … attributed to Judge Marilyn Milian, but may have an earlier history. 

Sorry, but I’ve been red pilled for a while.  For me, it started with the JFK assassination.  I was never a “gun nut” but was always interested in them.  When I heard what Oswald allegedly used as a rife, the distance, and angle, I began to suspect that this whole store was “barbara streisand” (i.e., BS; bull <synonym for excrement>).  I also took note of a Dorthy Killgalan’s murder; she was hot on the trail of the story of JFK’s assasination.

If you think it would be “interesting” or useful, I could begin to create an itemized list.  I did start to develop a taxonomy or scale for a Conspiracy Theory meter.  So, for example, I’d categorize TWA 800 as “Governmental (Conspiracy Theory)” and set the dial from “plausible” to “more likely than not”.  I’m just waiting for the chance to move it to “proven” when the Gooferment formally admits its actions. 

Maybe if DJT45 becomes DJT47, it could happen.  But I’m not holding my breath. 

This is probably more than you wanted to know, but I’ll make a good blog post.

I welcome input on my scale.For this one, I’d assign it a label of “plausible”.  I take no opinions but would like to see evidence (i.e., a Pfizer email; a check to the parties involved).  Rumors and innuendo can move it on the scale.

“That was also true when I spent years in chronic pain and was ultimately diagnosed with a genetic condition that has no cure.”

In 2018, Bream revealed that she suffers from excruciating eye pain caused by epithelial basement membrane dystrophy, which is an incurable genetic disorder of the eye.

The painful condition causes the surface cells of the eye to adhere to the eyelids.

Bream says that her career obstacles and health challenges have only served to better her.

HARDWARE: Put EPSON on my “never purchase” list


Bricked Epson Printers Make a Strong Case For User Repairability

*** begin quote ***

Epson has gained some scrutiny in recent weeks after the company disabled a printer that was otherwise working fine, leading to accusations of planned obsolescence. Epson knows its printers will stop working without simple maintenance at a predictable point in the future, and it knows that it won’t be cost-effective for many owners to send their home printers in for service. So why not build them to be user serviceable in the first place? The Verge:

The inciting post from @marktavern mentions that his wife was unable to use her “very expensive Epson printer” after an end-of-service error message appeared. This isn’t anything new for Epson printers, sadly. Reports going back several years mention an infamous error message that reads “parts inside the printer have reached the end of their service life.” Epson confirmed to The Verge that the error is related to the printer’s ink pads, which had likely become saturated through extended use and were now at risk of spilling into the rest of the printer mechanism.

POLITICAL: Time to dismantle the FBI


Where is the FBI’s Rubicon? After the Mar-a-Lago raid, when will the public stop standing for this?
August 12, 2022 | 10:13 am
By Roger Kimball
Roger Kimball is the editor and publisher of the New Criterion, publisher of Encounter Books and a Spectator columnist and contributing editor.

*** begin quote ***

Everyone knows that in January 49 BC Julius Caesar, about to lead part of his army across the Rubicon river, said “Alea iacta est,” “the die is cast.” Except that, according to Plutarch, what he really said was “Ἀνερρίφθω κύβος,” “let the die be cast,” and he did not so much say it as quote it, since the already-proverbial line came from the Greek playwright Menander. Anyway, in bringing an army across the stream that separated cis-Alpine Gaul from Italy proper, Caesar had committed treason. In crossing the Rubicon he had crossed a line, sparking the civil war that engulfed Rome and formalized the end of the Republic that had, as Caesar himself noted, been dead in all-but-name-only for decades.

Contemplating the recent actions of our secret police, known to some as the FBI, I have often wondered where to locate their Rubicon. Was it when they conducted a dawn raid against Roger Stone, having been careful to alert CNN beforehand so they could be on hand to publicize the attack? Maybe it was when they burst into the apartment of Project Veritas’s James O’Keefe, throwing him out in the hallway in his pajamas, while they ransacked his home looking for a diary kept by Joe Biden’s daughter? Or perhaps it was when they arrested former Trump aide Peter Navarro, throwing him in handcuffs and leg irons before depositing him in jail? Or when they accosted the lawyer John Eastman and confiscated his cell phone? That seems to have become a favorite pastime of the FBI, seizing people’s cell phones. Just a couple of days ago, they took Representative Scott Perry’s phone. “But,” you point out, “Perry is a Republican and Trump ally. He has no property rights.”

*** and ***

But the question remains: will the American people accept that the FBI has become the Praetorian Guard for the regime? I don’t know. I hope not. Harvey Silverglate is right: given its history of lawless behavior, “it is remarkable that no sitting president has moved to abolish the FBI.” Of course, it won’t happen on Biden’s, er, watch (or during his naps). But one way or another, the FBI must be dismantled. “We need an entirely new agency,” as Silverglate observed, “and a director who has no history of having worked in or with the FBI. Agency culture is a powerful force, and if we are to have any success in ridding the nation of this menace, we best eradicate it completely and start over.”

“Eradicate it completely and start over.” I couldn’t agree more. Will this partisan assault on a once (and possibly future) president be the Rubicon we’ve been waiting for? Let’s see.

*** end quote ***

It has definitely crossed the line and demonstrated that it’s now a political tool.  That’s what the Dead Old White Guys feared most — “private militias”.  Rogue “law enforcement”.  Tyrants with their “standing armies”.

It’s up to the next President and Congress to tear this agency down and, where important and salvageable, move components to appropriate places.  


The Federal Gooferment needs to return to it’s very limited nightwatchman’s role.

It does that by eleimating whole Departments.  Education and Agriculture come immediately to mind.  Followed by the FDA, CDC, BATF, Homeland Security, and even the Department of Energy.



HEROIC: Rome High School football scores a bug win for Team Human


Rome High School football players rush to assist motorist trapped in car

By John Bailey JBailey@RN-T.com 8 hrs ago

*** begin quote ***

A group of Rome High School football players rushed to the aid of a motorist involved in a wreck in front of the high school Friday morning.

The wreck involved a small silver sedan that had been damaged after another car pulled in front of it, according to Rome police. When teens noticed the driver was stuck in the vehicle, which began smoking, they rushed to her aid.

“This morning I witnessed something amazing that our Football players did. While I was in front of the school during my morning duty, I heard a loud noise at the intersection that appeared to be a wreck,” Luis Goya, a teacher at Rome City Schools said in a post to his social media page. “While I was running to the intersection, I noticed that two cars were involved. There was a 50-year-old lady trapped in her car and couldn’t get out. Smoke started to come out of the car, and fluid started to spill everywhere in the intersection. The door was jammed and in terrible shape.”

“While I was on the phone with the 911 dispatcher, the football players who witnessed the wreck, ran to the car, and started helping the lady. They literally started using their strength to pry the door open, so the lady could be released,” Goya wrote. “After a few seconds of pulling and pushing the door, the boys ended up opening it and helped her get out of the car. She was shaking and still in panic, but our RHS boys gave her comfort and were able to help her.”

The players were identified as Cesar Parker, Treyvon Adams, Antwiion Carey, Messiah Daniels, Tyson Brown and Alto Moore.

Right place at the right time to have an accident.

POLITICAL: Ron Paul has been proven right time and again


Covid RIP… and Ron Paul was Right.

*** begin quote ***

So yes, Dr. Paul was prescient in 1988 when he warned about the FBI as a political weapon – as we’ve seen it again used this week against a former US President. But he also simply understood the truth about the nature of government: that the more of it we have, the more temptation for the elites to bend power to better fulfill their end-goal of total control. Politics is about power. It is war by other means.

In a similar vein, and almost under the radar, the CDC just announced that everything they had been demanding and telling us for the past two plus years has been a lie. It doesn’t matter if you stand six feet away from people, it doesn’t matter if you are vaccinated or unvaccinated. You don’t need to quarantine. Kids can stay in school if someone around them has contracted the ‘rona.

The CDC and the thugs around them are pretending that this is something new, that they suddenly understand “the Science” better. They will not admit that they were lying and manipulating all along in pursuit of power and money.

But Ron Paul understood from day one. He saw what was coming and he put it all on the line to fight the totalitarian tide. He wasn’t armed with a crystal ball. He was armed with an understanding of truth: Power corrupts.

GOVERNACIDE: Apparently TWA800 was downed by the US Navy


The TWA 800 Whistleblower Is Legit
By Jack Cashill

*** begin quote ***

In the past few weeks, I have received numerous inquiries about ten-year Navy veteran William Henry Teele III. After years of quietly providing information to me and other investigators into the July 1996 destruction of TWA Flight 800 off the coast of Long Island, Teele has gone public and is naming names.

I shared some of Teele’s information in my 2016 book, TWA 800: The Crash, The Cover-Up, The Conspiracy. Teele did not claim to be on the ship that fired the missile. He was on the USS Carr, a guided missile frigate that was one of the “combatants” in the battle group that destroyed the unfortunate 747 and killed the 230 souls on board. Everything that I could verify about Teele’s account back then checked out.

In the six years since, Teele has reached out to many of his fellow sailors and fleshed out his account. Although he has appeared on several podcasts in recent weeks, his uninterrupted narrative on the Duke Report is the most compelling. I would welcome those with relevant experience to contact me through my website, cashill.com, to offer your assessment of Teele’s account or to provide additional information. My research suggests Teele is the real deal but I remain open, as all journalists should, to contrary information.

LIBERTY: Destroying the “deep state” should be job 1 for any freedom lover


The Next President Must Prioritize Destroying the Deep State
Opinion Jonathan Bronitsky, Co-Founder, ATHOS
On 8/10/22 at 6:30 AM EDT

*** begin quote ***

At CPAC in Dallas this past weekend, former President Donald Trump asserted that a “key priority for the next Congress and the next president will be to drain the swamp, once and for all.” Then, reiterating a point made in a keynote address to the America First Policy Institute last month, he specified that Congress “should pass groundbreaking reform empowering the president to ensure that any federal employee who is corrupt, incompetent, or unnecessary for the job can be told, ‘You’re fired.'”

Such legislation would essentially formalize and strengthen President Trump’s Executive Order 13957, which President Joe Biden rescinded during his first week in office. But there’s a problem: The chance of even a Republican-controlled Congress carrying out this type of reform is close to zero.

You see, Congress itself created—and, indeed, has since protected and bolstered—the Deep State, so there’s little reason to believe it would now reverse course and eliminate it. A few decades ago, members of the legislative branch began delegating their constitutional lawmaking authority to the myriad federal agencies that constitute the executive branch. (Incidentally, no one knows the exact number of entities that make up the branch. The best estimate is somewhere around 400. Four-hundred!)

It seems clear to me that until the “Deep State” is neutered, none of us can be free.

Hopefully. “We, The Sheeple” will be outraged at the politicization of the the various three letter agencies (TLAs) that run our lives.

One can only hope.


HEROIC: Several good Samaritans save a woman from a flooded sinkhole


Woman dramatically saved from sinkhole moments before car swallowed

A Texas woman is lucky to be alive after a dramatic video shows her being rescued from her car as a sinkhole opens in the middle of the road.

The woman — who was not identified by police — was driving her white sedan along Yandell and Gateway South in El Paso around 6:40 p.m. when a massive sinkhole opened up beneath her car due to heavy rain the area had received, reported Jam Press.

Several good Samaritans and El Paso firefighters jumped into action and managed to extract the woman from the car before it fell into the pit.

Good work by these brave fellows.  They could have been swallowed up too.

My question — not answered by the story — was she driving on a already flooded road?

I was taught to never ever drive on water where I couldn’t see the road’s surface. 

Here’s a reminder of that lesson.  Water is very powerful stuff and it doesn’t take much to float a car.

Be afraid and stay alive.


ECONOMICS: Bitcoin exposes the weakness of fiat “money”


“The Bitcoin Standard” Exposes The Hidden Costs Of Fiat
by Tyler Durden Monday, Apr 11, 2022 – 03:03 PM
Authored by Archie Chaudhury via BitcoinMagazine.com,

*** begin quote ***

Dr.u Saifedean Ammos, author of “The Bitcoin Standard,” explained how fiat has hidden costs and why Bitcoin represents the next generation of money…

Detractors of Bitcoin often point to its costs – namely in the form of electricity used in proof-of-work mining and its perceived impact on the environment – as reasons for why it will never be a sustainable alternative to traditional fiat currency. These detractors often believe that Bitcoin is fundamentally unscalable, or more likely, come from the power structures that fiat currency has enabled, such as government or centralized financial institutions.

In his presentation on the main stage of Bitcoin 2022, Dr. Saifedean Ammous delivered a presentation meant to underscore the invisible costs of fiat money, and how it has been used for centuries to economically oppress the average citizen of a fiat-based economy. Dr. Ammous has long been a supporter of Bitcoin, and has written “The Bitcoin Standard” and “The Fiat Standard,” both of which have helped educate numerous individuals about the advantages of Bitcoin and the corruption that is ingrained in most fiat states.

Dr. Ammous started his speech by focusing on inflation and how using fiat money helps back a system that is inherently unequal. Dr. Ammous specifically cited how fiat inflation is used primarily for the needs of the government, saying that “The cost of fiat is currently 3.5% of all global wealth, and is used to finance government parasites, wars, and monopoly banksters.”

Inflation is the silent tax that has robbed “We, The Sheeple” of 99% of the purchasing power of their “dollars”.

The politicians and bureaucrats love it because unless you look for penny candy, or a nickel cigar you won’t see it.

That what this thrives count on.

Exclusive: 34-Year-Old Died After Pfizer Shot, Mother Shares ‘Ridiculous’ Letters From CDC
Via Children’s Health Defense

The mother of a 34-year-old man who died suddenly two weeks after his first dose of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine said she believes her son would be alive today if he had had the information he needed to make an informed decision about the vaccine.

Victor Castillo Simoes died May 5, 2021, from an acute aortic dissection — an uncommon medical emergency in which the inner layer of the large blood vessel branching off the heart’s aorta tears. The condition mostly affects men in their 60s and 70s.

*** and ***

Henrietta said U.S. health agencies are “lying to people” that there are no adverse effects associated with COVID vaccines.

She added:

“When they say there’s no causal link the vaccine caused the injury, there’s no proof the vaccine didn’t. You can’t have the number of collateral damage we’ve had in order to save x amount of people because that’s criminal. You can’t have two people die to save 8 people. You don’t even really know if they’re being saved for sure by the vaccine.”

Henrietta said she and her family are not anti-vaxxers.

“We’ve all been vaccinated, but being from New York, we were all scared out of our wit’s end and didn’t know which end was up,” she said.

“But the government knew and they kept bringing the numbers for COVID up and up and created an emergency situation while suppressing therapeutics because they would not have been able to get EUA [Emergency Use Authorization] for COVID vaccines.”

Simoes was the last in his family to get the vaccine and didn’t have access to the information available now, Henrietta said.

“Without the knowledge that there are therapeutics that actually work or potential risks of the vaccine, how can you make an informed decision?”

Henrietta said she did not want to diminish the deaths due to COVID, but to “suppress alternative treatments and mandate vaccines is criminal.”

“If you get injured what recourse do you have?” she asked. “You have no way of suing so if you become a paraplegic because of it, where do you go?

Henrietta said she will not get any boosters, nor will her husband or children.

“We don’t know if we are genetically prone to something,” she said. “No more vaccines or boosters.”

Henrietta said her life will never be the same, nor will her family.

“If this could have been avoided by more critical thinking about what we’re really doing and what can we do in lieu of vaccines I think many peoples’ adverse effects could be eliminated,” she said.

Henrietta encouraged others to do their own research, be careful about what they put into their bodies and talk to physicians who understand the risks of COVID vaccines.

Sounds like there is criminal corruption involved.

Why isn’t reporting mandatory?

Let’s start pulling professionals’ licenses for this failure.


ECONOMICS: Is the American Empire in decline — seems that way

“In a few words: the West is in decline and our leaders are greatly accelerating and exacerbating this decline. They can cover this up with redundant arguments about what is and isn’t a recession for so long. But at some point either the inflation will get worse — perhaps by gas shortages in Europe this winter — and/or the unemployment rate will spike. At that point, the underlying dynamics will become too obvious to ignore; for politicians and the general public anyway. Economists will likely find some other redundant nuance to debate and distract.”


# – # – # – # – #

It certainly seems that the “can” has finally been kicked as far down the road as it can be.  And, some very ugly economic “chickens” are going to come home to roost.

Instead of learning from the malaise in Japan, or the abject failures of previous “bailouts”, the politicians and bureaucrats have continued to increase their spendthrift ways.

“We, The Sheeple” are going to feel the pain!

When will we talk about INDICTING those responsible for all those “vaccine” mandates that have caused—and are NOW causing—so much grief? (And if there’s no legal recourse, what then?)

This happened in The Bronx today. Scroll down to find out why it happened (as if you haven’t guessed), and to see who—among others—should be indicted for it. MTA bus driver crashes into pole after possible heart attack: cops

August 4, 2022


An MTA bus driver crashed into an elevated subway pillar in The Bronx when she suffered a possible heart attack Thursday — leaving 12 passengers with minor injuries, cops and sources said.

The 44-year-old Bx21 driver was heading south on Boston Road when the medical episode occurred and she hit the stanchion at the West Farms Road intersection around 8:25 a.m., authorities said.
The front of the MTA bus rammed into the pole, shattering the window.
The Bx21 driver careened into an elevated subway pillar at Boston Road and West Farms Road, cops said.

She suffered head trauma and was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where she was listed in critical but stable condition due to the medical episode, which sources said was possibly a heart attack.

POLITICAL: The D’s are raising taxes and giving corporate welfare — Remember in November!


One Democrat Senator Can Stop Middle-Class Tax Hike
By Akash Chougule — August 05, 2022

*** begin quote ***

Democrats are calling for a massive middle-class tax increase during an inflation crisis to pay for billions in corporate welfare. It sounds absurd, but it’s true.

The average American family will spend $5,520 more in 2022 to afford the same quality of life as 2021, and poll after poll shows rising costs are the nation’s biggest concern; yet Democrats in Congress are trying to raise taxes across the board to fund hundreds of billions in giveaways to politically-favored industries.

The so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” introduced by Sen. Joe Manchin in July is many things, but inflation reduction it is not. Analysis from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business, which Manchin previously said is his budgetary model of choice, says that the $739 billion behemoth is unlikely to have any impact at all on inflation. Congress’ nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation says it will raise taxes on every income bracket above $30,000 per year. President Biden has repeatedly pledged he would not raise taxes on any family making less than $400,000, but the committee found that the middle class and low earners will face the steepest tax hikes under the proposal. Biden isn’t the only supporter willing to violate his commitments amid record inflation: both Manchin and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer spoke out against tax increases during recession – notwithstanding the White House’s attempts to change the definition of the word for political gain.

*** and ***

Democrats claim these taxes are borne by corporations, but it is well established and agreed upon by economists – including left-leaning experts – that much of the burden of corporate taxation is borne by workers. Estimates vary, but the Congressional Budget Office found that workers bear about 73% of the cost. For low-income households, the burden of corporate taxation outweighs that of individual income taxes.

The damage to the economy would be broad even as Manchin insists on the limited scope of tax hikes. The five industries hardest hit employ one in every four American workers, or about 40 million people in total.

Remember in November!

Even if you have to hold your nose, the R’s — who are not much better are the party out of power — hence vote them in.  

You’ll have a chance to vote them out the next time around.
