Is The Dis-Uniting Of America Now Inevitable?

Is The Dis-Uniting Of America Now Inevitable?
Authored by Robert Bridge via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

Joe Biden will ram through warped liberal social experiments masquerading as credible, time-tested programs designed to stabilize the nation.

It was a stark image never before seen in Washington, DC, and one that bodes ill for the future prospects of the country. A locked down capital ringed in barbed wire, with 25,000 troops encompassing the Capitol building, provided a surreal backdrop to Joe Biden’s inauguration as the 46th POTUS.

The excuse Democrats have provided for turning the ‘citadel of democracy’ into a maximum security

Putting The Cost Of COVID-19 In Perspective

Putting The Cost Of COVID-19 In Perspective
When it comes to the toll on human life, mental well-being, and any long-term complications, the true cost of COVID-19 (and government’s response) can be difficult to quantify.

That said, from a purely economic angle, Visual Capitalist’s Avery Koop notes that researchers can and do examine these things – as well as economic data like unemployment and lost GDP, to assign dollar figures to the pandemic.

Using data from a study out of Harvard University, these visualizations focus on putting the economic cost of COVID-19 in the U.S. in perspective. To help us

During this week’s Senate confirmation hearings, Joe Biden’s secretary of state nominee said the new administration will keep the US embassy in Israel in Jerusalem.

“Do you agree that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and do you commit that the United States will keep our embassy in Jerusalem?” Antony Blinken was asked by Republican Senator Ted Cruz (TX).

“Yes and Yes,” Blinken responded. His answer was not a surprise, as Joe Biden said he would not reverse Trump’s embassy move

Chesapeake Bay Oyster Prices Collapse As Diners Ditch Restaurants Amid Pandemic 

Chesapeake Bay Oyster Prices Collapse As Diners Ditch Restaurants Amid Pandemic 
According to The Southern Maryland Chronicle, the ripple effect of restaurant closures and indoor capacity limits at eateries across the Baltimore–Washington metropolitan area has decimated the oyster industry on Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay. 

For many who make a living off the Chesapeake Bay’s oysters, this past fall and winter have been a living nightmare. 

Watermen in Maryland and Virginia say the problem isn’t supply but rather demand. 

“We got lots of oysters, and they’re excellent quality,” said Bill Sieling, executive vice president of the Chesapeake Bay Seafood Industries Association,

“Here Are The Superheroes To Come And Save Us All”: Media Waste No Time Fawning Over Biden

“Here Are The Superheroes To Come And Save Us All”: Media Waste No Time Fawning Over Biden
Authored by Alan Macleod via MintPressNews.com,

We rely on the media to hold the powerful to account. But in its first hours in office, the corporate press has celebrated, rather than challenged, the new Biden administration.

It began immediately during the 78-year-old Delawarean’s inauguration, with senior figures in the media barely able to contain their emotions watching what they saw.

“As Lady Gaga sang the national anthem, the sky opened up and sunlight reflected off of the Capitol, illuminating the flag,” wrote Olivia

US Economy Set To Overheat As Households Are Flooded With $2 Trillion In Excess Savings
Something unprecedented happened in the immediate aftermath of the passage of the $2.2 trillion CARES act: as a result of the unprecedented transfer of wealth from the government to consumers in the form of countless stimulus measures, personal incomes soared and personal spending plunged (as the economy was largely shut down especially for spending on services), resulting in what we showed in May was an explosion in the annualized amount of Personal Savings, which soared by a mindblowing $4 trillion in May, rising from $2.1

Greenwald: The Moronic Firing Of Will Wilkinson

Greenwald: The Moronic Firing Of Will Wilkinson
Authored by Glenn Greenwald via greenwald.substack.com,

Will Wilkinson is about as mainstream and conventional a thinker as one can find, and is unfailingly civil and restrained in his rhetoric. But yesterday, he was fired by the technocratic centrist think tank for which he worked, the Niskanen Center, and appears on the verge of being fired as well by The New York Times, where he is a contributing writer. This multi-pronged retribution is due to a single tweet that was obviously satirical and sarcastic and for which he abjectly apologized. But no matter:

Amazon Demands In-Person Union Vote After Arguing Mail-In Ballots ‘Raise Risk Of Fraud’
Surprise! Mail-in ballots raise the risk of fraud – according to Amazon.
