If you ask Americans what they think of the U.S. economy, they will tell you things are not good. Americans are stressed about the family budget. They worry about falling behind financially. They feel like what they’ve worked so hard to earn could be gone in an instant. But if you ask President Biden, the economy couldn’t be better – so good that he put his name on it: Bidenomics.

The President brags a lot about the economy, so we decided to look at what the President has been saying, compare that to the facts on the ground, and let you decide for yourself.

We are supposed to be living in an era of Big Data, but there are strong trends toward institutions restricting data as researchers come up with inconvenient findings. For example, Tory MP Neil O’Brien reports:

The Great Immigration Data Disaster

Officials are deleting the data we need for a more sensible debate

NEIL O’BRIEN
MAR 4, 2024

Whatever you think about migration policy, the one thing most people can agree on is that we should try to improve the data available to policymakers.

But that is not what’s happening. Quite the reverse.

HMRC [His Majesty’s Revenue & Customs] used to publish data on the amount of tax paid by nationality (together with data on tax credit and child benefit claims). In fact I have used this data in previous posts.

At the start of December I emailed HMRC asking when the data for 2021 would be published. I got an email back from HMRC today, saying it won’t be: in fact it has been discontinued, and won’t be published again: …

The great modern hero of the Affirmative Action Wars, Edward Blum, has struck again.

In June last year Blum managed to corner the Supreme Court and extract the constitutionally inevitable ruling they have been hiding from since the 1978 Bakke decision.

James Fulford explicated this for us in Supreme Court Rules Against Affirmative Action—Whites And Asians ARE Protected By 14th Amendment... By A Vote Of 6-2.

It is true that SCOTUS has subsequently shown signs of weaseling: SCOTUS Afraid To Enforce Its Own Affirmative Action Ruling? But this is par for the course for this perpetual collection of ethical and moral pygmies.

Now Edward Blum has turned his guns on possibly the most blatant case of Minority Occupation Government abuse in DC: the Smithsonian [Legal strategist Edward Blum sues Smithsonian museum director over a Latino-focused internship program, by Nicquel Terry Ellis, CNN, February 26, 2024]:

Edward Blum, the legal strategist behind the Supreme Court case that dismantled affirmative action in college admissions, has filed a lawsuit against the director of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Latino and the director of the Institute of Museum and Library Services over an internship program.

The Red Sea has transformed from one of the world's most important maritime trade routes into a warzone. Iran-backed Houthi rebels have withstood dozens of bombing raids by US and UK fighter jets. The Biden administration's Operation Prosperity Guardian continues to fail as yet another container ship was attacked on Tuesday. 

US Central Command posted on social media platform X that MSC Sky II, a container ship operated by MSC Mediterranean Shipping Co., was damaged in a missile attack about 90 miles southeast of the Yemeni city of Aden. 

On Mar. 4, at approximately 2:15 a.m. (Sanaa time), Iranian-backed Houthi terrorists fired an anti-ship ballistic missile from Yemen into the southern Red Sea. The missile impacted the water with no reported damage or injuries to commercial or US Navy ships.

Between the hours of 3:50 p.m. and 4:15 p.m. (Sanaa time), Iranian-backed Houthi terrorists fired two anti-ship ballistic missiles from Yemen into the Gulf of Aden at M/V MSC SKY II, a Liberian-flagged, Swiss-owned container vessel. One of the missiles impacted the vessel, causing damage. Initial reports indicate there were no injuries; the ship did not request assistance and continued on its way.

The Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement has fired dozens of rockets at Israeli military sites in the northern flank of the 1948 occupied territories in retaliation for the ongoing brutal aggression against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network, citing a Hezbollah statement, reported that the resistance forces launched rockets at Gesher HaZiv kibbutz, situated in the Western Galilee on the coastal highway between Nahariya and the Lebanese border, on Monday.

The statement noted that the rocket fire was in retaliation for recent Israeli strikes on “southern villages and civilian homes,” including an attack on a civil defense center at al-Adisa town in southern Lebanon.

The Hezbollah-linked Islamic Health Committee said three of its paramedics were killed in the “direct” Israeli attack on the civil defense center.

Two very controversial figures who notoriously criticized the government died under mysterious circumstances in recent weeks, but only one of them received media attention.

Most people who follow the news now know that Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny is dead, with the media heavily reporting that he likely, in their view, was murdered by the Russian government.

Media report after media report continues to be published speculating as to what became of Navalny, whose family believes that he was murdered because of his beliefs and influence.

Then there is journalist Gonzalo Lira, who also died, though one month earlier in January, under similarly suspicious circumstances. If you have not heard of Gonzalo Lira, there is a reason for that: his life came to an end while rotting away in a Ukrainian prison.

Because the Western media hates Russia, it cannot publish enough stories about Navalny in an effort to sway public opinion against Russia and its leader, Vladimir Putin. And because the Western media loves Ukraine, it has barely published a peep of anything about Lira’s death.

On the morning of 10 February, Muhammad Obeid, 26, left the home of relatives in Nuseirat refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip where he has been sheltering to try to get a signal on his phone.

It didn’t go well.

The signal in the camp was weak and he, along with a couple of other young men also in search of a signal, had wandered toward Salah al-Din Road, which runs almost the whole length of Gaza north to south.

They were still hundreds of meters away from the street when Obeid saw an Israeli drone heading straight for the group.

“I wanted to get an internet signal because I was using an eSim and needed to check on my sister and her sons, still in the north,” Obeid said. “But then the drone started approaching.”

The men turned and ran, but too late. The drone – a quadcopter equipped with a rifle – opened fire, and Obeid was shot in the back.

A Democratic State Senator from Kentucky shocked her fellow lawmakers by advocating for the provision of “child sex dolls” to pedophiles, aiming to deter them from acting on their urges towards children in real life.

During her address to the legislature, State Senator Karen Berg chose not to use the term “pedophile,” instead opting to use the term “minor attracted persons.”

“…there are what they call ‘MAPS,’ minor attracted persons and – the limited amount of research that’s done on these dolls suggests that they actually, for people who are attracted to minors, that these dolls actually decrease their proclivity to go out and attack children,” Berg argued.

“It actually gives them a release that makes them less likely to go outside of their home and what was interesting is the research did not support the same conclusions for people who were adult-attracted using dolls,” she added.

When police suspected Danny Kyllo, an Oregon man, of growing cannabis in his home they drove to his house with a thermal imaging device to scan it. They found hot pockets in the house, which were used to obtain a search warrant and subsequently bust Kyllo.

Fortunately, a 5-4 Supreme Court decision ruled the scan an unlawful search under the Fourth Amendment, requiring a warrant the police did not obtain.

Score one for privacy, but the government is about to have a far more controversial and dangerous tool at its disposal to monitor what’s going on inside your home.

Unlike a thermal imager, this device is already in your home – and you put it there.

Sudan’s Defense forces commander Abdel Fattah al-Burhan has conditioned acceptance of AU mediation on membership reinstatement.

Citing a statement from the ruling Sovereignty Council local media reported that, al-Burhan expressed “Sudan’s confidence in the African Union's potential solutions, but only if the state regains its full membership and the organization treats it as such.”

Gen Burhan met members of the AU High-Level Panel on the Resolution of the Conflict in Sudan on Sunday.

The three-member panel was established by the AU Commission in January to facilitate dialogue, restore constitutional order and work collaboratively with all the Sudanese stakeholders meaning all civilian forces, military belligerents and regional as well as global actors including IGAD, the UN, the League of Arab States.

The panel aims to ensure an all-inclusive process towards the swift restoration of peace and stability in Sudan

Joe Biden's administration has admitted transporting migrants on secret flights into the U.S. and lawyers for its immigration agencies claim revealing the locations could create national security 'vulnerabilities'. 

Customs and Border Protection has refused to disclose information about a program last year secretly chartering flights for thousands of undocumented immigrants from foreign airports directly to U.S. cities. 

It means that while record numbers of migrants were flowing over the southern border last year, the Biden White House was also directly transporting them into the country.

Use of a cell phone app has allowed for the near undetected arrival by air of 320,000 aliens with no legal rights to enter the United States.

Pressure is likely to grow in the coming days for the U.K. Met Office to make a full public statement about the state of its nationwide temperature measuring stations. This follows sensational revelations in last Friday’s Daily Sceptic that nearly eight out of ten sites had huge scientifically-designated ‘uncertainties’ that essentially disqualified them from providing the accurate data required to promote the collectivist Net Zero agenda. Our report went viral on social media with over 1,300 retweets on X, and it was reposted on a number of sites. The investigative journalist Paul Homewood has covered the Met Office’s temperature claims for many years, and in the light of the new disclosures he noted that if it wanted to continue to use its existing station measurements, it should show a warning that the margin of error is so great “that they have no statistical significance at all”.

Specifically, nearly one in three (29.2%) Met Office sites are rated by the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) as CIMO Class 5, and this comes with a warning of “estimated uncertainties added by siting of 5°C”. Class 5 can be termed a ‘junk’ rating since the WMO gives no guidance on where it can be located. The next to junk Class 4 comes with uncertainties of 2°C, while Class 3 has a 1°C warning. From information disclosed under a Freedom of Information request, the Daily Sceptic compiled the graph below that shows Class 4 accounted for 48.7% of the Met Office’s 380 recording stations. Only 13.7%, or 52 stations are free of ‘uncertainties’ warnings.

Melissa Saunders ties loose bracelets for her daughter's fundraiser for children affected by the war in Gaza at the Dar Al Jalal Masjid Mosque in Hazelwood, Mo. on Saturday, March 2, 2024. Saunders's daughter is part of former Girl Scout Troop 149 which left the organization after being told to stop their fundraiser by the regional Girl Scout council. (Vanessa Abbitt/St. Louis Post-Dispatch via AP)

Missouri Girl Scout leaders threatened legal action against a troop that made bracelets to raise funds for starving children in Gaza, provoking outrage and ridicule from the girls’ supporters and advocates for people trapped in the Palestinian territory by the latest humanitarian crisis.

Girl Scouts of the USA said its eastern Missouri chapter had only been following fundraising rules, but that it was “disappointed and disheartened by the tone” of the communication with the troop in St. Louis.

Claire's Observations:  Missouri Girl Scout Leaders, preventing kids from making bracelets, to support starving Palestinian kids:  ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

One has to wonder, if the bodies of deal Palestinian children need to be flown BACK to this Missouri Girl Scout Office, so that someone there gets a clue, that Israeli genocide is killing Palestinian kids?!?!?  

DAMN; you can't fix stupid!!

In an interview with Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro last week following the ruling, former deputy independent counsel Sol Wisenberg called the ruling “extremely dubious” and the award “completely out of proportion.”

“I certainly don’t see how the part of the decision that imposes a $355 million judgment is supported by the evidence because, as the judge points out in the very first paragraph of his opinion, and as you pointed out, there’s no loss from the bank,” Wisenberg told Pirro who was guest-hosting for Laura Ingraham.

“The loans were repaid. Now, certainly, you can legally engage in fraud of all kinds if the victim doesn’t lose money, but to impose a penalty of $355 million and to bar him for three years and his sons for two years seems to me to be completely out of proportion to the actual loss here, which was zilch,” he said.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said this week that he believes corporate media is starting to turn on President Joe Biden because there is increasing belief that he could lose this November in a rematch against former President Donald Trump.

Cruz made the remarks during the latest broadcast of his “Verdict” podcast with co-host Ben Ferguson while talking about Biden’s declining poll numbers and the closing window to replace him as the Democrat nominee.

“I do think we are seeing the corporate media starting to turn on Joe Biden, and we’ve talked at length, listen, it was this podcast that drove news and drove news across the country, when we said months ago that I believe there was a very significant chance the Democrat Party would pull the cord on Joe Biden, yank him out and replace him with Michelle Obama,” Cruz said.

Citing 'Extreme Hunger' in Gaza, Israel's Top Food Security Official Calls for Immediate Cease-fire

Food security head Prof. Roni Strier, appointed by the previous government, warned that Israel is party to international agreements that require it to protect civilian lives in war zones and obey 'clear rules of the game'

The head of Israel's National Food Security Council, Prof. Roni Strier, is calling for a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip because of the dire humanitarian situation there.

Strier wrote on his personal Facebook account on Friday that Israel wasn't taking the humanitarian condition of Gaza's civilians into account because of the pain of the October 7 massacre, adding that "Israel can't ignore the humanitarian considerations it is obligated to both morally and politically."

Strier has stood against the government's positions over the past year, including both on the judicial overhaul and professional issues related to providing food aid to those in need.

The Food Security Council operates within Israel's Welfare Ministry, and Y'aakov Margi, the Welfare and Social Affairs Minister, has been pushing in recent months to close the council as an independent body and make it answer directly to him.

Claire's Observations:  God Bless this guy; an Israeli with a conscience.  I know that there must be many more like him. 

I hope they will have the courage to speak out, particularly on the starvation of Palestinian children by the Israeli government.  NO CHILD on the planet, deserves to die like this; not one!!

President Joe Biden spent the entirety of Saturday at Camp David, the presidential retreat located in Catoctin Mountain Park, Maryland, for another weekend getaway.

Biden's departure to the retreat was marked by a swift jog to Marine One on Friday evening, eager to retreat from Washington, DC.

In contrast, former President Donald Trump dedicated his Saturday to engaging with the public, hosting large rallies in North Carolina and Virginia. Addressing a significant crowd at a "Get Out the Vote Rally" in Greensboro, North Carolina, ahead of the upcoming March 5th primaries, Trump was met with an extensive line of supporters eagerly awaiting entry.

Renowned MSNBC guest and Morning Joe contributor, Donny Deutsch, recently emphasized the imperative for Democrats to instill fear in the populace regarding the potential re-election of Trump in 2024.

In a candid discussion with host Nicolle Wallace, Deutsch underscored the significance of this strategy, stating, "Democrats need to ‘scare the s**t out of people’."

Deutsch, known for his adeptness at stoking apprehension, has consistently employed this tactic throughout various election cycles. He proposed a bold approach for Democrats, suggesting the utilization of esteemed figures such as General Mark Milley to caution Americans about the perceived threat posed by Trump. Despite acknowledging Milley's credibility, Deutsch expressed skepticism about the public's receptiveness to such warnings.

President Biden’s pitch to win election and now to win reelection is that he is a man of compassion.

From letting millions of migrants into the country without vetting to canceling billions of dollars of student loan debts, Mr. Biden’s policies have been predicated on the notion that he is compassionate and cares about the so-called little people.

But behind the scenes, it’s a different story.

For almost a year, Mr. Biden took no action to protect his Secret Service agents from vicious bites by his German Shepherd Commander. Now, with a Freedom of Information Act disclosure, we know that Mr. Biden’s Secret Service agents endured 24 dog-biting incidents involving Commander, including one that led to an agent receiving six stitches to his arm. A uniformed Secret Service officer bitten by Commander in the fall of 2022 needed treatment at a hospital.
