November 24, 2022 | Electric cars are not Green | The claims of politicians about electric cars are built on magical thinking. Marketing for electric vehicles never mentions the fact that 500,000 lbs of minerals and rock has to be mined somewhere on Earth in order to make a single electric car vehicle battery. Mining is an extremely polluting and environmentally destructive activity that requires enormous amounts of fossil fuel.
Another inconvenient fact is that mining usually takes place in nations with the least environmental regulations and ingredients for batteries are often mined in places that enslave people and use child labor.
Our energy systems are being designed by bureaucrats instead of by engineers. This means more expensive and less reliable energy, with more harmful environmental impacts. -JD
Electric Cars: Inconvenient Facts | By John Stossel |
Catherine Austin Fitts and Tennessee Senator Frank Niceley discuss the strengths and benefits of a Sovereign State Bank and bullion depository that could become a model for other USA States. The conversation examines strategic investment, precious metals, and how local banks and credit unions can counter the threat of Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC). -JD
CAF states, “unless we have a sovereign state government, protecting sovereign individuals who are free to transact, including transact privately, you know, without invasive technology, we will have no sovereignty and then you’re talking about 100% central control by the bankers…we’re talking about a technology that in combined with other systems, can turn your home, your car and your community into a digital concentration camp. We’re talking about the end of human freedom and centrally controlled, through the financial system. So we must have states and citizens and with them community banks and other financial institutions that have the ability to protect free transactions.”
November 21, 2022 | House Resolution Introduced to Audit Ukraine Funds |
H. Res. 1482, introduced on November 17th in the House of Representatives, directs Joe Biden, the Secretary of Defense, and the Secretary of State to provide copies of all documents related to Ukraine funding between January 20, 2021 to November 15, 2022. These documents are to include notes, telephone communications, charts, tables, emails, audio recordings, financial statements and all related materials.
So far Congress has spent more than $60 BILLION dollars on Ukraine and is seeking to add an additional $50 BILLION during the lame duck session. Recent revelations have revealed that Ukraine funding is linked to the FTX cryptocurrency exchange scandal underscoring the need for an immediate accounting, transparent investigation, and halt on any more spending. -JD
November 19, 2022 | Digital Currency Trial Announcement |
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York announced a 12-week digital currency platform trial. In collaboration with some of the largest financial institutions in the world including Wells Fargo and Citibank, members of the U.S. banking community will be running a proof of concept (PoC) project. The PoC will explore the feasibility of digital money on what is known as the regulated liability network (RLN).
In this trial commercial banks will issue digital money, or tokens, representing their customer’s deposits. They will utilize a shared multi-entry distributed ledger in order to settle up with central bank reserves. Undetected by the general population this trial is very important for the advancement of global banking and is a critical first step towards a cashless society.
As many have pointed out government controlled digital currency would mean the end of liberty and freedom. If the government and Central Banks have the ability to control and monitor every transaction, they just as easily could shut off your ability to buy anything. One way to reject this system is to use #CashEveryDay. -JD
Those following politics understand too well that government is better at causing problems than solving them. A case in point is in Maine where the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has attempted to place devastating restrictions on the hard working men and women of the iconic lobstering industry.
Behind the narrative of protecting right whale entanglement ( that hasn’t happened in 20 years ) is a well funded wind farm industry that apparently has their eyes on the gulf of Maine. Notably, offshore wind and shipping industries are not subject to the same strict regulations as the fishing industry.
Coming from an administration and agency that funds programs to intentionally pollute the atmosphere, it’s highly unlikely that politicians and special interests are being entirely honest about their motives or love of whales.
From WhyNotWind: “Billions of dollars have gone into erecting the wind and solar “traps” and trying to convince people there exists a clean, free energy source. The result is devastated landscapes, expensive, unreliable power and no more than a small fraction of the power promised is ever generated.”
The hard working men and women of Maine’s lobster industry don’t want to hurt whales. They just want to earn a living as they have done for generations, support their communities and feed their families. -JD
Missouri Joins Growing List of States Divesting from BlackRock
More States are divesting from investment company BlackRock, Inc. due to the firm’s ESG (environmental, social, and governance) political agenda. Missouri State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick said that the financial interests of Missouri state employees who rely on their investment funds for retirement are the State’s priority.
Other States that have divested from BlackRock are Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming. -JD
“We should not allow asset managers such as BlackRock, who have demonstrated that they will prioritize advancing a woke political agenda above the financial interests of their customers, to continue speaking on behalf of the state of Missouri. It is past time that all investors recognize the massive fiduciary breach that is taking place before our eyes, and do something about it.”
October 16, 2022 | Biden Administration’s America Last Policy: $725 Million More Assistance To Ukraine | Image Youtube_Source
The DoD announced on October 14th, another $725 million in ‘assistance’ to Ukraine. The Biden Administration seems to be determined to bankrupt the American economy as BILLIONS have been stolen from US taxpayers to fund Washington’s proxy war with Russia.
As a result of reckless government spending, inflation, homelessness, and domestic problems are escalating. -JD
Tell Congress to START negotiating a peace agreement and STOP FUNDING Ukraine’s WARHERE
Link To DEMAND NO MORE so-called “aid” to UkraineHERE
Ungrateful Zelensky and Washington bureaucrats expect American taxpayers to keep funding their endless wars. Say NO!
As more information comes to light regarding the CV-19 SCANDAL, the political class seems to be working diligently to avoid accountability for their unnecessary masking, lockdowns, ‘testing,’ closing ‘nonessential’ businesses, the experimental (and fatal) injections and destroying the economy.
D.C. bureaucrats seem to be shifting gears to start more wars and steal more American taxpayer money to avoid the inevitable: accountability for their unconstitutional CV-19 policies.
Bob Menendez and Lindsay Graham are big time cheerleaders of Zelensky’s war and have met with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen to pledge American support for Taiwan. WTH? We have enough challenges here at home to deal with. Working class Americans do not want war.
Lindsay Graham 202-224-5972 Bob Menendez 202-224-4744 STOP funding for wars. START negotiating for peace. -JD
As it pertains to the American public, Ukraine’s response to the Russian invasion can be summed up with two words: “Zelensky demands.”
To date, Washington elites and their politicians have been happy to provide—at public expense—lining their own pockets in the process.
As of this writing, U.S. aid for Ukraine has reached approximately $67.5 billion, a figure greater than Russia’s entire 2021 military budget. According to the State Department, this support includes $15.2 billion in direct military assistance. The support comes although 60-70% of lethal aid never reaches the front lines, according to a now-redacted CBS interview with on-the-ground activists.
Not only is the American taxpayer supporting much of the Ukrainian military, it is also supporting the Ukrainian government. The same working class Americans who were deemed “nonessential” in 2020—who saw their businesses shuttered and burned down—now have to pay entitlement programs both at home and in Ukraine. As of September 30, 2022, the U.S. has provided $13 billion in “direct budget support,” which is ostensibly used;
…to pay government salaries, meet pension obligations, maintain hospitals and schools, and protect critical infrastructure[,] support continuity operations at the national, regional, and local levels, support for [sic] the health sector, agricultural production, civil society, [and enable] programs to hold Russia and its forces accountable for their actions in Ukraine.
