Gas Prices Hit 2023 Highs as Oil Chugs HIGHER

Over TWICE as high as when Trump left office in many areas of the country!!!

Gas prices hit new 2023 highs Monday as a squeeze on oil supply sent prices of refined products higher.

The oil issue, the higher gas prices — this should be a reminder to all of us that the Fed is not in charge of inflation… (Continue to full article)

Pipeline problems could cut off nation’s 100-year gas supply
A recent analysis determined the United States sits on a century’s worth of gas supply, but industry experts warn there aren’t enough pipelines to access it.

The report from the Potential Gas Committee, part of the Colorado School of Mines, found that the country had technically recoverable gas resources of 3,353 trillion cubic feet, a 0.5% decrease from its 2020 estimate.

Despite this, however, total future supply has hit the highest level recorded by the committee in 60 years

Anyway you look at it – we are SCROOED!!! (Continue to full article)

Five bank branches in same state set to close for good in October and customers warned to locate their money
BANKS have worked to digitize their assets, leaving behind brick-and-mortar shops across the US.

In New York State, five more bank branches made it to the chopping block in September as banks continue their digital revolution.

Bank of America announced it would shutter a location in Pelham Manor while Newtek Bank announced a closure in Flushing, Queens.

Another filing the week later showed three more banks set to close in the state… (Continue to full article)

What To Know If You Deposit More Than $10K Into Your Checking Account
If you plan to deposit $10,000 or more into your checking account , there are a few things you should consider first. By law, banks have to report deposits that exceed a certain amount.

Not only that, but many bank accounts come with maximum deposit restrictions. You may also be subject to certain fees when making such a large deposit. If you frequently make large deposits, you should also watch out for any potential scams or fraudulent activity. But even if this is a one-time thing, it’s still important to know about these factors and how they might affect you.

By requiring banks to report deposits of $10,000 or more, the government can more easily keep track of monetary transactions… (Continue to full article)

Why the US Will Never Pay Its Debt
The United States has a long history of borrowing money to finance various initiatives, from wars to economic stimulus packages . As of 2023, the national debt stands at over $30 trillion, a staggering amount that is almost impossible to comprehend.

The US has to pay interest on its debt, and these interest payments are a significant portion of the federal budget. As the debt grows, so does the interest that needs to be paid on it. This means that even if the US were to stop borrowing money tomorrow, it would still owe a significant amount in interest payments.

There is a lack of political will to make the tough decisions required to pay down the debt. Any effort to pay down the debt would likely require a combination of spending cuts and tax increases, both of which are politically unpopular. Additionally, politicians are often focused on short-term goals, such as winning the next election, rather than long-term fiscal responsibility… (Continue to full article)

The Intentional Destruction of America’s Border Security

Migrant families stand on the Rio Grande River bank as they wait for Border Patrol agents to escort them to a processing center after they illegally crossed from Mexico into Roma, Texas

I find it to be an indictment against our entire government that Americans don’t have a secure border or an real sense of security in our country.

This is precisely what these red, radical rat bastards voted to achieve and continued to support and facilitate, just as long as it was affecting and impacting only conservative areas along the southern border. Now these radicals who used to laugh at conservatives for being “racist rednecks” complaining of the invasion, want it to stop, because it’s begun to impact them, as they step around shiftless dope-smoking illegal aliens and MS-13 cartel members on the way to the grocery or to their children’s school.

Paul: The Death of Informed Consent

Here’s what never happened in the hospital during COVID: a doctor sat down next to a patient and said, “You have a choice. We can give you Remdesivir, which killed 53% of the patients in an Ebola trial. It was so bad the trial had to be shut down. And you’ll notice here in Remdesivir’s fact sheet, it says, ‘Not a lot of people have used Remdesivir. Serious and unexpected side effects may happen.’ Or we can give you ivermectin, a safe and effective drug that’s been successfully used for decades, and send you home. Which do you prefer?” Continue reading

Child Speech Issues: Return of the Masks

We know how detrimental masking was for kids the first time around. Are we really going to stand for it happening again?

COVID hysteria is slowly happening again. First, Lionsgate Film Studio put back on the mask. Then, Morris Brown College in Georgia put back on the mask. Next, President Joe Biden put back on the mask. And finally, schools across the country are trying to adopt masking yet again.

It’s COVID 2.0: Return of the Mask Mandates, and we’re letting it gain a foothold even after we know masking was a terrible and ineffective decision. It was especially detrimental when it came to the educational and academic development of our children. Continue reading

Reagan: Saving Our Kids From the Wackos and Dirty Books

Sen. John Kennedy bravely quoted some choice excerpts from “All Boys Aren’t Blue” and “Gender Queer.”

Thank God for Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana.

I wish every major television and radio network in the country had covered what the smart and colorful Republican did in the Senate this week.

As part of a hearing looking into the alleged threat to freedom posed by parents who want to have sexually explicit gay and trans books removed from their school libraries, Kennedy bravely quoted some choice excerpts from two of the books.

While he read out loud from “All Boys Aren’t Blue” and “Gender Queer,” every adult in the room with a brain and a lick of common sense squirmed uncomfortably in their seats. Continue reading

The Mills of the Gods

We didn’t love freedom enough.” ~ Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn

Do you think that more than half of the US public may be getting a little irked with “Joe Biden’s” lawfare elf, AG Merrick Garland, as he rolls one innocent J-6 protester after another into decades of hard-time for strolling through the US Capitol building — while the special counsels assigned to only a few of the Biden family crimes play hide-the-salami with due process?

For all their cheap talk about “our democracy,” it’s a little scary to see what Democratic Party lawyers actually think of the legal system that is supposed to allow a society based on liberty to function fairly. Court filings last week indicate that Special Counsel David Weiss is about to indict Hunter Biden on that gun charge they have used as the joker in a three-card Monte game for going on five years.

Holmquist: One Simple Thing Anyone Can Do to Save America

Embracing children rather than reviling them is a great start

With the American way of life visibly crumbling, I get a lot of people asking me some form of the question, “But what can I do to save America?”

I’ve given various answers to those who ask this, but a new pat answer popped into my mind the other day: Be like Amber de la Motte.

If you just gave me a perplexed stare and uttered, “Who?” don’t worry. I only came across Amber de la Motte a few weeks ago myself. She and her husband and their 10 kids living in New York City are a fun follow on Instagram. Continue reading

Smith: Americans Will Have to Fight to Remain Free

Mr. Smith… from another time!

It’s hard to have faith in any one person to make the necessary changes to save America, after he or she takes the Oval Office. It’s getting even harder to have faith in the American people, who seem to only have sense enough to open their mouths to eat or beg the government for some more “free stuff”, as we see them choose so badly in one election cycle after another.

The other side of the coin remains a fascist economic system that holds an inordinate amount of influence and power over our Congress and essentially protects the wealthy corporatists today rather than serve all Americans and their interest in the greatest level of freedom and liberty that ensures a high degree of prosperity.

As noted by Albert Schweitzer, doctor, explorer and a man who wanted to save the world… Continue reading

Victory!: It’s a Good Day to Die

“In the beginning of a change, the Patriot is a scarce man and brave, hated, and scorned. When his cause succeeds, however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a Patriot.” ~ Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens)

If the Heavenly Father should choose to call me home this day, no one can say that I haven’t been involved with the fight. And on this day, we have come out the victor in a major battle with the United States of America, Inc., for by this hour on Thursday night, the United States Senate voted in favor of Senate Bill (SB) 2554, commonly known as Arming Pilots Against Terrorism and Cabin Defense Act of 2002.

This Could Devastate Christian Education

The LGBTQ lobby has targeted Christian schools for destruction, using the so-called “Equality Act” to force all Christians schools, pre-K through college, to accept all aspects of the LGBTQ agenda … or be stripped of accreditation and face lawsuits and persecution by the U.S. Department of Justice.

The bill passed the House in 2019 and 2021. It was reintroduced in the 118th Congress on June 21, 2023, in the House of Representatives and Senate. And now HR 15 already has 212 Democrat co-sponsors in the House. All they need is six Republicans to pass this bill.

With Congress back in session, HR 15 is a high priority for LGBTQ advocates. If this bill is signed into law, it would be a devastating blow to religious freedom and Christian education in America that would be very difficult to recover from. It’s not too late to stop it. ~ Mat

Medical Whistleblowers Speak Out

The Hidden Dangers of the COVID-19 Vaccine and the Diabetes Time Bomb!

You’ve been fed a narrative that’s as shaky as a house of cards, and it’s about time someone toppled it over. We’ve been told that the COVID-19 injection is our savior, our ticket back to normalcy. But what if I told you that this so-called “miracle cure” is nothing but a ticking time bomb?

Biden Should Be Behind Bars

Joe Biden is a criminal. It’s as plain as a Hillary Clinton pin up.

He’s not alone – many in Congress and White House occupants before him are the same. Most of them are millionaires who acquired their wealth while in office. Look for AOC to become a multi-millionaire soon if she’s not one already. She does as she’s told.

How do you think they all got so rich? Corruption, of course. Joe Biden is estimated to be worth $12 million. He owns three mansions, yet he has claimed he was the ‘poorest’ politician in the Senate. That was another one of Joe’s whoppers. His wealth was mostly accumulated during his long career in the Senate, but we know he has also secreted away much more through his ‘pay for play’ schemes with help of his son Hunter. Continue reading

Confirmed: Joe Biden Paying Illegals $2,200 a Month Plus free Travel, Housing, Medical Services

U.S. officials are giving huge monthly payouts to illegals along with free travel, free housing, and free medical services. In fact, Illegals are getting more than natural-born Americans on Social Security get far less in government support each month.

Americans on Social Security average just $1,781.63 a month, according to federal data. but Biden is doling out $2,200 a month plus a long list of other freebies to criminal aliens who have broken our laws to get here. Continue reading

The Real Reason Drugs Cost So Much — and Do Too Little

We’re still going to be paying too much for the wrong drugs.

Until 2003, Medicare covered most hospital and doctor visits for the elderly, but it did not cover the ever-growing costs of prescription medications. Former President George W. Bush changed that when he signed a law adding prescription drug coverage to Medicare.

But there was a catch… Continue reading

The Next Crisis Is Anyone’s Guess, But the Government Is Ready to Lockdown the Nation

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.” ~ H.L. Mencken

First came 9/11, which the government used to transform itself into a police state.

Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit, which the police state used to test out its lockdown powers.

In light of the government’s tendency to exploit crises (legitimate or manufactured) and capitalize on the nation’s heightened emotions, confusion and fear as a means of extending the reach of the police state, one has to wonder what so-called crisis it will declare next.

It’s a simple enough formula: first, you create fear, then you capitalize on it by seizing power.

Frankly, it doesn’t even matter what the nature of the next national emergency might be (terrorism, civil unrest, economic collapse, a health scare, or the environment) as long as it allows the government to lockdown the nation and justify all manner of tyranny in the so-called name of national security.

First Drugs Chosen for Medicare Negotiations Hit Close to Home for Cardiologists

Optimism must be balanced with conservative expectations given the unknown nature of the cost impact.

This week, the Biden-Harris administration announced the first 10 drugs that Medicare will be allowed to negotiate prices for beginning in 2026 – the list contains many medications that cardiologists commonly prescribe for their patients.

The drugs are part of the first wave of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), which aims to reduce prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries while cutting drug spending by the federal government. Already, the IRA has lowered the cost of insulin to $35 or less, and out-of-pocket spending by Medicare beneficiaries is set to be capped at $2,000 per year beginning in 2025. Continue reading

Tucker ~ How Deep Runs the Corruption?

For the last several years, my friends in public health and science have expressed astonishment and professional disorientation at the behavior and messaging of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The scientific journals are part of this.

They simply could not believe the brazen manipulation of science for political purposes. They could not believe that so many people within these agencies and journals went along with it for reasons of career protection. They have been appalled that science and public health have been deployed in this way.

They worry about the future with this level of corruption. And they have been quite passionate in decrying it, while paying a professional price for not going along. Continue reading

Let’s Call It Treason

People see but they do not understand. People hear but they do not comprehend. In the meantime, politicians both see and hear, but ignore. It is treason by omission

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” ~ Edmund Burke, 1729-1797

If you do nothing in a difficult time, your strength is limited. ~ Proverbs 24

Millions of people around the world are beginning to figure out that there is a force, an evil cabal trying to take over the entire planet. This force has influenced leaders of every persuasion, in every country, and has been remarkably successful in putting a vast amount of governmental, religious, educational, medical, corporate and institutional leaders in a sort of trance…zombie like, to do their will.
