The coming months are looking to be very positive for equity markets as rate cuts are expected to occur in the context of significant deficit spending.

In the modern financial system, Treasuries are money-like assets, so deficit spending is comparable to a form of money creation. As interest rates decline, Treasuries become less attractive and investors tend to rebalance into riskier assets.

Turkey has a modern, serious military.

They could roll through Israel like it was nothing if they wanted to.

Of course, the US would have to intervene to protect Israel, and at that point, everyone would be involved, including even Egypt and Saudi.

It’s possible that Erdogan will conclude this is a good idea.

Regina Thompson, a Cherokee basket weaver who grew up near Tahlequah, pointed out to the AP that the Cherokee language symbols on the packaging are wrong. Two symbols look similar, and the one used translates to “Chicken” rather than “Cherokee.”

Yes, Mattel accidentally called a Native American a chicken. You can’t make this stuff up.

Thompson also told the AP that Mattel should have considered moccasins instead of black shoes and included symbols on the basket.

The 1980s was a decade characterized by its own distinctive fashion trends, where boldness and excitement took center stage.


Among the many iconic styles that emerged during this era, the rah-rah skirt was seen as a symbol of youthful vibrancy and innovation.


The roots of the rah-rah skirt can be traced to the energetic world of cheerleading.


Known for their spirited performances and dynamic routines, the cheerleaders wore skirts with flowy, pleated designs that accentuated their movements.


The fashion industry, always eager to adopt emerging trends, took inspiration from these cheerleading uniforms and tried to infuse a new sense of chic into the rah-rah skirt.

House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky., told Newsmax on Monday that it doesn't matter how the Biden family and the media want to spin the reason behind the monthly $1,380 that Hunter Biden paid Joe Biden in 2018 — what matters is where the $4,140, in all, came from.

Hunter Biden paid back his dad, now the president of the United States, from the account of a shell company called Owasco PC, with monies from China that were derived from an influence-peddling scheme, Comer showed earlier in the day.

The fact that it was called a loan for a truck is the bright shiny object used to distract the Biden family apologists and feeble-minded media, Comer said on "Rob Schmitt Tonight."

Kiev has lost more than 125,000 troops and 16,000 items of arms and materiel since the beginning of the so-called counteroffensive June 4, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said on Friday, as TASS reports. 44% of Ukrainians now want negotiations, while the White House warns it is running out of money for Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that “Russia has never refused peace talks with Ukraine.”

“An all-out mobilization in Ukraine, the deliveries of Western armaments and the commitment of strategic reserves to combat by the Ukrainian military command have not changed the situation on the battlefield. These desperate actions have only added to casualties among Ukrainian army units. Over six months of the so-called counteroffensive, the enemy has lost more than 125,000 personnel and 16,000 items of various armament,” Shoigu said in a conference call with military commanders.

Observers including Col. Douglas MacGregor and Robert F. Kennedy had claimed Ukraine had lost approx. 350,000 men before the start of the offensive. That would put Ukrainian losses in the war at 475,000 (killed, wounded, captured and missing).

During all 2023, we had to bear the climate alarmist cult shouting to the winds how ‘this year was by far the hottest one in recorded history’.

But the alarmists seem to have jumped the gun, since the year hasn’t ended yet – and the winter has come with a blistering vengeance against the Northern Hemisphere.

It is also fitting that this wave of extreme cold should hit right as the chief Climate Fearmongers are all gathered at the COP28 in Dubai peddling their ‘Global Warming’ hoaxes.

A Lancet study revealed that cold weather is responsible for approximately 90% of the 5.1 million annual excess deaths attributed to temperature.

We could use some more heat.

The CDC has wiped references to ‘pregnant women’ or ‘pregnant woman’ in vaccine guidance and replaced them with terms like ‘pregnant people’ and ‘pregnant parent’ in an effort to become ‘gender neutral’.

Other gender specific terms such as ‘she’, ‘her’, and ‘mother’ have also been resigned to the dustbin of history by the CDC.

Twitter has censored a campaign ad and locked the presidential campaign account of Terrisa Bukovinac, a pro-life Democrat who is challenging Joe Biden for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.

Bukovinac is the founder of both Pro-Life San Francisco and Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU). She is running for president to expose the extreme position that Joe Biden and other Democratic elected officials have on sanctity-of-life issues.

Last year, Bukovinac and another pro-life activist, Lauren Handy, recovered the remains of more than 115 aborted children outside a Washington, D.C., abortion facility. Five of the children were fully formed, and there is evidence that these aborted children may have been victims of partial-birth abortions — a violation of federal law. That said, there has been no formal investigation into the deaths of these preborn children.

One of the reasons that Bukovinac is running for president is to keep the memory of these aborted babies alive. The censored campaign ad includes graphic images of the remains of these children. Indeed, Twitter stated that the account was locked because it violated rules against “posting media depicting gratuitous gore.” (Note: Twiter (X) has not censored a LifeNews tweet featuring Bukovinac’s graphic commercial.)

Greenpeace's recent report reveals a disheartening truth about plastic waste in the U.S. A staggering majority of plastic generated by American households isn't finding its way to recycling facilities. Out of the 51 million tons of plastic produced last year, only a meager 2.4 million tons were recycled. The daunting challenge isn't associated with the recycling process itself but rather with the complexities of plastics.

Travel back in time with us as we explore a fascinating collection of vintage photographs that capture sweet moments shared between animals and people from days gone by.

Travel back in time with us as we explore a fascinating collection of vintage photographs that capture sweet moments shared between animals and people from days gone by.


Steeped in history, these images provide a surreal and heart-touching glimpse of a world where the bonds between humans and animals were as simple as they were important.


From the late 19th to the early 20th century, photography was in its infancy, a craft that required precision and patience.


Each exposure was carefully prepared, and both human and animal subjects had to remain still for several seconds.


The dogs in these old photographs were not just pets; He was a loyal friend and protector. Whether seen accompanying children, farmers or as part of working teams, dogs were an integral part of daily existence, providing companionship and often a sense of security.

USAF veteran, new father, and January 6 protester AJ Fischer went to Washington, DC, to protect innocent Trump supporters from being attacked by violent Antifa/BLM thugs.

And on that day, he and the others who came to protest peacefully were attacked.  But it wasn’t Antifa; it was Capital Hill police officers, and the videos of their violent behavior are finally coming out.

Capitol Police fired flash grenades and rubber bullets at peaceful protesters, including women, children, and seniors in the crowd. The Trump supporters had nowhere to move to, and many had NO IDEA what was about to hit them!

Two years ago, a Brazilian minor came to the US as an exchange student in the US and stayed in a West Virginia home in which her host had placed a spy camera bought on Amazon.com.

The minor – said to have been an "aspiring actress" in an amended legal complaint [PDF] filed earlier this year against e-commerce giant Amazon – found that her host "had been using Amazon's spy camera to surreptitiously record her in her private bathroom."

The plaintiff's lawsuit, which last week largely survived Amazon's motion to dismiss the case, seeks to hold the online store liable for selling a product that was advertised for potentially illicit uses and was allegedly flagged to its Product Safety team.

The "Hidden Clothes Hook Camera" – a covert camera concealed in a clothes hook – was accessible on Amazon's website until recently.

Two Internal Revenue Service whistleblowers who alleged that the U.S. Department of Justice interfered in the Hunter Biden investigation are testifying on Tuesday during a closed-door session before the House Ways and Means Committee.

Gary Shapley, a supervisor who ran the IRS probe of Biden, and Joseph Ziegler, an agent from the agency's criminal division, are participating in the session with lawmakers regarding "documents protected under Internal Revenue Code Section 6103."
