SKYE’S LINKS 08/24/23
Before we begin, let me first thank all my fellow TTPers who posted such nice birthday wishes for me on the Forum. What you expressed means a lot to me – what a wonderful 80th birthday present, for which I am so very appreciative and grateful. “Live long and prosper” to us all!
Good news! Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley explains how The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has handed down a major victory for free speech against the District of Columbia woketard judge. Even better, it’s a Pro-Life free speech victory and loss for Only Black Lives Matter racism!
“When disaster strikes, always blame it on Climate Change” is the Dem mantra now. Yes, the mantra helped cause the deadly Maui wildfires – but not in the way that the MSM and Xiden minions are claiming:
The above was tragic, but the lethal role that DEI played in the Maui fires was literally insane:
But there is a lot more to these fires than that; there was an unusual weather condition that caused localized winds of up to 90MPH, which explains the photos of snaped power poles:
Nigel Farage is winning the good fight to preserve the ability to use cash in Britain:
Here is an interesting poll regarding the economy and how bad Xiden is likely to be blamed for it. Note that expectations play a substantial role in investment decisions, so if Xiden wins in 2024, a negative economic response is even more likely than his poor policies promoting massive malinvestment and blocking productive investments would merit – and that is really awful:
For investors; this is not good news. While Powell was late in raising interest rates, Trump’s desire to repress long term rates further below their normal historical level of about 2.5-3.5% above inflation, is not what the US dollar needs to survive. During his presidency, Trump frequently criticized Powell for setting interest rates too high, whereas they were already far below market rates and were already brewing inflation, particularly in the equities, bond, and real estate markets. Trump was a yuge over-spender, though Xiden is even worse. If either of them are elected in 2024, inflation will inevitably become worse and the value of the dollar drop in real terms, though not necessarily in terms of other even more inflated fiat currencies:
For investors; I have a very bad feeling about this, too. “Unexpected things tend to happen when the real source of problems are papered over and then suddenly reality intrudes.”
More for investors. The Federalies’ interest rate repression following the onset of the Great Recession is causing long term malinvestment consequences that extend far beyond housing. The lock-in effect of the artificially low mortgage rates of those past years is having a profound effect on labor mobility, new housing construction, and the ability of future Fed easing to stimulate the economy:
Did you ever suspect that precious metals markets were being manipulated? You were right:
For everyone, Vitamin D is important for proper immune function against a wide variety of infectious diseases, including the Fauci/CCP virus. I try to maintain my Vitamin D blood levels at about 65 nanograms per milliliter because minimum all-cause mortality is in the 50-70 ng/ml range. For me, this requires about 8000 IU/200 mcg per day of D3; Jack tells me he and Rebel take the same.
It is worth getting a blood test for Vitamin D, and then using the following link to adjust your supplemental dose. After a few months, test again., and readjust your dose as needed
“Make no mistake about it…your DNA can be taken and entered into a national DNA database if you are ever arrested, rightly or wrongly, and for whatever reason… I doubt that the proud men who wrote the charter of our liberties would have been so eager to open their mouths for royal inspection.”—Justice Antonin Scalia dissenting in Maryland v. King
Government minions really are out to get you – via your DNA:
In closing, here is a very worthwhile essay on what the author painfully learned from the pandemic years: “When your ideological system and political allegiances fail to provide the explanatory power we are seeking, it is time to improve them or give them up entirely.”
