(The Blaze) James Madison once warned, “Armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.” Well, the debts the U.S. government accrued while pushing COVID tyranny and the Great Reset continue to place the many under the domination of the few. Thanks to government largess, inflation for Main Street continues unabated while the top Wall Street companies enjoy a windfall. Meanwhile, Republicans refuse to fight — and, indeed, were complicit in creating the current crisis.

A Decades-Long Stock Market Bubble?

(Outside the Beltway) Everywhere you look, stockmarkets are breaking records. American equities, as measured by the s&p 500 index, hit their first all-time high in more than two years in January, surged above 5,000 points in February and roared well above that level on February 22nd when Nvidia, a maker of hardware essential for artificial intelligence (ai), released spectacular results.

Middle America Is Dying, And D.C. Doesn’t Care

(Zerohedge) It isn’t just those workers who face catastrophic uncertainty; this closure also jeopardizes the jobs of thousands more people whose businesses supported the plant: the barber shops, gas stations, mom-and-pop grocery stores, the machine shops that make the widgets for the steel industry.

The Digital Currency Indoctrination Has Begun

(Daily Bell) Yesterday a close friend of mine who lives in Spain told me that his son, a high school senior, has been getting lessons in school about Central Bank Digital Currencies, or CBDCs.

Inside The Most Ridiculous Jobs Report In Recent History

(Zerohedge) On the surface, it was an blockbuster jobs report, certainly one which nobody expected. Starting at the top, the BLS reported that in January the US unexpectedly added 353K “jobs” – the most since January 2023 (when the print was 482K compared to 131K) , double the consensus forecast of 185K and more than the highest Wall Street estimate (300K from Natixis). In fact, this was a 4-sigma beat to estimate, unheard of in the past year.
