… the report also showed the lowest consumer sentiment reading in the 70-year history of the series, realistically speaking a far more troubling indicator than what a small group of respondents think inflation will be in 10
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed in late 2021 that a person died from blood clotting after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine that had been linked with an increased risk of blood clotting, but did not alert the public for two weeks, newly obtained emails show.
Dr. Tom Shimabukuro, a CDC official, told
“I am not anybody to tell you what you need to do with your life or with your uterus.” She then mentioned special needs people in her family, saying, “I have a
Last weekend, I was extremely worried that we were in the process of Cutting Off Our Nose to Spite the Face! We seemed to be on a path where:
- The Fed was going to fight inflation at all costs, even if that pushed us into a recession.
- The Fed was going to fight inflation even in areas where Fed policy wouldn’t be expected to have much of an impact.
- The inflation fear was so palpable that signs of inflation rolling over (along with the economy) would be missed, or
“I’m going to assassinate supreme court justice Clarence Thomas,” tweeted user @redfrnn after Friday’s Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade.
Upon reporting the tweet, Twitter said it didn’t break the rules.

In a June 25 letter to Judge Alison Nathan, one of Ghislaine Maxwell’s defense attorneys, Bobbi Sternheim, informed the court that Maxwell was placed on suicide watch yesterday by the Manhattan Detention Center (MDC), and that this “recent development” may “require postponement of Tuesday’s sentencing proceeding.”

The attorney stated that this was done “without having
Just as the G7 was underway for its first day of meetings on Sunday in the five-star hotel Schloss Elmau in the Bavarian Alps of Germany, Russia’s military pounded Kiev with a series of missile attacks, which President Joe Biden – who is attending in person – condemned as “more of their barbarism.”

The EU has consistently sided with defending Greece and Cyprus’ pushback against expansive Turkish claims, which
The mercantilist dependence on exports for growth, a winner for the past 70 years, has reached diminishing returns. Rather than be a source of growth, it’s a source of stagnation.
Conventional wisdom holds that geopolitical power is inevitably shifting from West to East. It isn’t quite this simple. The real shift is occurring between three sources of power that are not so neatly geographic:
1. The commodity exporters
2. The mercantilist exporters of products
3. The consumer-importing nations
