The IMF, the Federal Reserve, and Marxist Central Bankers

You’ve seen the same inflation I have… prices are up everywhere. And Biden is trying to call it the “Putin Price Hike” in order to shift the blame away from his (and Trump’s) money-printing bonanza. It’s a lie meant to misdirect you from understanding the real source of the problem. Meanwhile, what do the central bankers say? These are the folks who operate the (digital) money printers. They prefer people think of them as part of the government (and thus subject to oversight)… but they’re not. The Federal Reserve, for example, is a network of privately owned banks. At a recent meeting, the Fed chair joined some of his central bank counterparts from elsewhere in the world. Among them was Kristalina Georgieva, head of the IMF (International Monetary Fund) which is based out of D.C. (The IMF makes risky loans to unstable governments and hands out our tax dollars to politically-connected companies.) In

The End of the CDC’s Face Mask Mandate and What it Means for Us

“Because ‘our system does not permit agencies to act unlawfully even in pursuit of desirable ends,”… the Court Declares unlawful and vacates the Mask Mandate.” Those were beautiful words to hear on an Easter Monday, courtesy of one Kathryn Kimball Mizelle. This federal judge from Florida finally ruled out loud what we’ve all been thinking. (Those of us with enough functional brain cells, anyway…) For over two years, the CDC was found to have improperly used its authority to force riders on public transportation to cover their faces or face penalties. All this hinged on an obscure section of the 1944 Public Health Sanitation Act the CDC used to justify their overreach. Thanks to a well-prepared legal brief from the plaintiff, the judge blew enormous holes in the agency’s use of mask mandates to support a sanitation measure. Of course, much damage has still been done by this point from federal agencies colluding to enforce this

Elon Musk Takes on the Thought Police

Over the past week, we internet users were given a rare treat in the form of media honesty. The subject? Just how stupid the mainstream media thinks we are. This came courtesy of Elon Musk, who made a $43 Billion offer to buy Twitter, taking the social media behemoth private. This offer, given Twitter’s struggles to monetize and grow as a company over the last decade, was generous to say the least. Of course, the subsequent meltdown by prominent left-wingers has been highly amusing and incredibly revealing. For starters, the rapid pivot of online blue-check types from “Twitter is a private company and they can kick off anyone they want from their platform” to “the government must intervene NOW to stop Elon-Musk-who-is-basically-worse-than-Hitler, from buying up an entire company” is… pretty stunning. It’s actually quite impressive to do a 180 on your views that quickly without any regard for how hypocritical one looks

The Messed Up World of “Covid Relief”

Us taxpayers fund a lot of crazy things, don’t we? From the $400,000 camel statue to the infamous $2 million bathroom… we’ve seen plenty of examples over the years of government waste and mismanagement. And recently, with pandemic relief money raining down from D.C., state and local governments have had an opportunity like never before to think up new projects. And boy, have they been creative! According to a recent report, the list of projects being funded by federal Covid ”relief” money includes all kinds of laughable expenditures… From building a Florida hotel with an 11,000 square-foot spa, to a minor league baseball stadium renovation in New York, to tourism campaigns in Puerto Rico, golf course irrigation in Colorado, helping an Iowa county buy a ski resort, and my personal favorite: $2.5 million for parking enforcement officers in Washington, D.C. And that’s just scratching the surface. So where is all of this coming from, exactly? The answer

There’s Nothing More Tribalistic than War

As the Russia-Ukraine conflict continues to unfold, the rhetoric surrounding the war seems to get stronger by the day. Just when you think the politicians have exhausted their supply of condemnations, they come back with more for our consumption. The remarks are, in many cases, deserved. Putin’s actions are deeply immoral, and they ought to be named as such. But, as so often happens in war, the target of these verbal assaults has quickly become blurry. Some days “Putin” is the problem. Other days it’s “the Russian aggressors” or simply “the Russians”. Unfortunately, this blurriness has not been confined to rhetoric. Around the world, Russian products are being removed from stores, not because they have anything to do with the war, but simply because they come from a certain country. “Russia must be punished,” we are told, “because of its egregious acts.” Whether by intention or by accident, it seems

“Don’t Say Gay” and the Anti-Parenting Movement

Have you heard? Ron DeSantis is outlawing saying the word “gay” in Florida! One caveat, though—the bill, which is expected to be signed by DeSantis any day now, doesn’t actually mention the word “gay” at all. Or ban anyone from using any adjectives of the sort… At least, not if you actually read the text. In reality, this law would prevent public schools from teaching gender orientation and sexual preferences to children ages Kindergarten through 3rd Grade. It also prevents schools from witholding information from parents about their child’s mental, physical, or emotional health. It also gives parents the right to sue schools violating these rules. Unsurprisingly, recent polling shows 63% of parents are on board with the legislation’s actual contents. That hasn’t stopped the media from launching an embittered smear campaign against the law, nicknaming it the “don’t say gay” bill: a term that’s stuck pretty well, false as it may be. So why
