  1. 5 are running independently, and as a team....they will join Dan Crenshaw..... It might be nice to have some real Patriots in the House......people who believe in serving their Country.... CL SEALs have a new target: Congress Paul Bedard July 23, 2021, 11:05 am Washington’s greatest hope for political bipartisanship and action may be in the hands of the nation’s most lethal outfit — U.S. Navy SEALs. In a show of political force never before seen, five retired SEALs are running for House seats in 2022, hoping to join Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw, who is expected to win a third term. “We all believe Congress is a place where you can make a sizable impact, and I think that’s why a lot of us are trying to get there,” said first-time Republican candidate Eli Crane of Arizona, a winner on the Shark Tank investor TV show. “I personally believe that Americans, and that includes people on the Left, are really looking for a group that they understand that they can intuitively trust to do something better,” said Derrick Van Orden, who nearly won in 2000 and who is again challenging Wisconsin Democratic Rep. Ron Kind in 2022. The “old man” of the group, former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, a former Montana House member running to return to Congress, said that while they are all Republican Party faithful, the SEALs “caucus” could have an outsize impact on bridging the political gap in Washington. “I’m gonna win,” said Zinke, already endorsed by former President Donald Trump. “But I guess I'm reluctant because I know what D.C. has become. It is fixable. If I didn't think it was fixable, I wouldn't do it. We got to learn to work together as a nation. I don't think the biggest threats are Russia, China, or even Iran. I think it’s the division within this country,” he said from Kalispell, Montana. What all three said SEALs, plus Brady Duke running in Florida and Morgan Luttrell in Texas, offer are teamwork and a rich work ethic. “I think a lot of veterans don’t think through a red or blue lens. I think we mostly see things through a red, white, and blue lens,” said Zinke. Crane, 41, already endorsed by conservative media mogul Mark Levin, began his campaign this week with a provocative video that said his 13 years of Navy service proved he had “skin in the game.” In an interview, he said, “To be honest, I'm tired of seeing folks go to Washington, D.C., that are self-serving. They're not willing to sacrifice, they're not courageous, and I know that I'm a little bit different when it comes to that. And so, I'm willing to do it because I think that you can make a pretty big impact there, not only in how you vote, but when you're in that room encouraging others.” Van Orden, 51 and a strong supporter of Trump, said that he is a conservative not willing to give ground on principles but ready to find common ground on issues, a stance not common in Washington. “A lot of the things that Navy SEALs bring to the table that other people don't bring to the table is that you absolutely, 100%, unequivocally understand that we'll be focused on something, you can accomplish it, and that we won't be focused on ourselves,” he said. Van Orden, who was one of the stars in the movie Act of Valor, added, “If the Left, or the Democrat Party, however you want to say, is really going to put the country before politics, I’ll work with them every single day.” Florida candidate Duke agreed with the "team" theme. "The one thing I believe and I know is true about our community is that those of us who have fought alongside each other are brothers. We know that we have a goal in mind and we're going to do everything as a team and as a unit to do that," he said. Duke added, "I think that's something that needs to be restored in Congress today, and then our government. We have a keen ability to create teamwork in ways that will overcome obstacles that people would otherwise think can't be overcome." Pollster John McLaughlin said that voters should embrace veterans and SEALs as candidates. “America has a long history of patriots who defend our freedom and democracy in war and then return home to run for office to defend the very same freedom and democracy from within the government,” he told Secrets. “It’s little wonder that the heroes who sacrificed in our armed forces are once again leading the way to defend us and sacrifice in public service. It’s necessary for liberty to survive,” he added.

CL Unvaccinated U.S. swimmer sparks debate as Olympics start Feared how body would react but has no plans to be vaccinated in future Beth Harris - The Associated Press Posted: July 23, 2021 Last Updated: July 23, 2021 Michael Andrew's refusal to be vaccinated is causing major controversy for the U.S. swim team at the Tokyo Olympics. (Jeff Roberson/The Associated Press) A debate is brewing between former gold medalist Maya DiRado and some American swimmers over U.S. medal threat Michael Andrew's decision not to be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus as he prepares to compete at the Tokyo Olympics. DiRado sparked the discourse this week with a lengthy thread on Twitter in which she wrote that she's "disappointed" in Andrew's decision to compete unvaccinated and his reasoning behind it. Andrew revealed earlier this month he isn't vaccinated after being asked about his status by a reporter. "My reason behind it is, for one, it was kind of a last moment, I didn't want to put anything in my body that I didn't know how I would potentially react to," he said. "As an athlete on the elite level, everything we do is very calculated and understood. For me, in the training cycle, especially leading up to trials, I didn't want to risk any days out. There were periods where you take a vaccine, you have to deal with some days off." Andrew said he has no plans to be vaccinated in the future. "We feel very safe and protected knowing that we're minimizing risk as much as possible," he said, citing daily testing during the Olympics. Lone unvaccinated swim team member Tokyo Olympic organizers and the International Olympic Committee didn't make it mandatory for athletes to be vaccinated to compete. Just more than 20 per cent of the Japanese population is fully vaccinated. The IOC has reported 13 positive cases among all athletes in Japan. About 100 of the 613 U.S. athletes in Tokyo are unvaccinated, the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee's medical chief said Friday. Andrew is the only member of the U.S. swim team to publicly reveal he is not vaccinated.
  8. The Death of Truth & the Rise of Centralized Government Control July 25, 2021 By Matthew Piepenburg As I write this from a France making ever more bold moves toward forced vaccination, one can’t help but ponder the broader issues of centralized government control, regardless of one’s take on vaccine or no vaccine. Focusing on financial rather than viral data, the evidence of centralized state control over natural market forces in the stock and bond markets is becoming increasingly incontrovertible. We’ve written elsewhere about the death of logic and the madness of crowds. It should therefore come as little surprise that the death of truth is yet another casualty of the increased central control we are experiencing in global markets. Debt Crisis Disguised as a Health Black Swan Long before COVID reared its highly controversial head (from viral source debates, baby-with-bathwater policy reactions, censored science as to vaccine efficacy and safety, distorted math on infection rates vs death rates, and centralized government control by officials acting “for your own safety” vs. Constitutional and legal issues of individual choice), the global financial system was already in an undeniable as well as unsustainable debt crisis. As any one who can fog a mirror and read history in the same breath also knows, whenever a debt crisis is obvious, what follows is equally obvious: an economic crisis, then a political crisis, and from there a social crisis. In short, and from ancient Rome to 1917 Russia, or 1789 France to 1933 Germany, debt matters. Debt is a very dangerous thing to economies and societies, and always climaxes with more centralized control in its wake. The problem for the 21st century, however, is that almost no global policymaker (left, right or center, European, Asian or American) wanted to touch this $280T debt elephant in the room. Instead, they buried their heads for years in the sand and sought re-election with promises paid for with, alas, more debt. In this openly embarrassing backdrop (long before COVID), economic orthodoxy had been tossed into a corner as governments around the world took on fatal debt levels like this: …paid for (i.e., “monetized”) with mouse-click fiat money like this… But rather than face or confess the sins of a system already on its debt-broken knees, the financial and political actors responsible for the pre-COVID debt disaster had a convenient tale to tell. A Convenient Lie That is, and almost as if on demand, along came the tale of all tales, the patsy of all patsies, the blame of all blames, and the excuse of all excuses: COVID. That is, if we thought economic orthodoxy (i.e., living within one’s national means, valuing valuations or honoring free market price discovery) had been tossed into a corner pre-COVID, well, the post-COVID backdrop essentially murdered economic orthodoxy completely. Today, we have global debt rising exponentially… …as well global central banks printing more fiat currencies parabolically: New Rules Hiding Old Failures and “Fuzzy Economics” COVID paved a sad new road to what Antoine van Agtmael described as “fuzzy economics”—namely a financial panopticon in which governments worldwide have literally gorged themselves on ever more debt in a secular paradigm shift toward greater centralized control over our economic, personal, social, political and foreign policies. From vaccines to banking regulations, lockdowns to melt-ups, individuals and markets are now adapting to a new set of desperate rules in the wake of the equally desperate failures of prior financial policies. a. Governmental Guarantees of Commercial Bank Loans To this end, I have spoken with Russell Napier at length (and written at length)on these new rules, which involve new sets of governmental/centralized control euphemistically described as “support,” including governmental (and highly inflationary) guarantees of commercial bank loans. This massive game-changer (and open signal of increasing centralized control) effectively went unnoticed by the Main Stream Media, whatever stream that is… b. Warnings from a Fed Governor: Governments Doubling Down Yet even before blunt geniuses like Napier clarified this narrative, some of the less blunt and far less genius policy makers themselves could no longer hide or deny their own mistakes, all of which pointed toward new rules, “new order” and hence new mistakes to come. In May of 2015, for example, former Fed governor Larry Lindsay was already confessing that “the financial arrangements of the state are no longer sustainable,” and that a new paradigm awaited us. He went on to say that, “it is not a pretty change if we get there, and it is a matter of political liberty because a government will NOT voluntarily let itself go out of business…it will use all its powers available… to fund itself.” Imagine that. The sad fact is that just because governments have immense power, this by no means implies immense wisdom, character, accountability or even math skills. The new rules now involve a financial system already heading toward an open confession of Wall Street socialism and a Federal Reserve which is now effectively, if not entirely, financing the U.S. government. Centralized Government Controls = Deliberate Inflation As Russell Napier, a one-time staunch deflationist, now argues, these new rules all point to more inflation ahead, which is the ultimate gut-punch to an already over-controlled and dying middle-class—i.e., the real world. But for nations drowning in debt, deliberate inflation is one way to print away that burden. Bond Markets Decoupled from Reality Meanwhile, in this new abnormal of increased centralized control over our lives, markets and economies, the Fed can create money like this in the span of months… …in order to purchase the vast bulk of otherwise unwanted IOUs from Uncle Sam—i.e., Treasury bonds. Such “policy,” of course, artificially suppresses Treasury yields (which go down as central bank supported bond prices go up). This explains why yields have sunk to levels which in no way reflect where yields would otherwise be in a free market confronting undeniable as well as rising inflation (which the Fed still refuses to acknowledge). But as for inflation, Napier once again reminds: “Have we ever seen a country in history persistently running a broad money growth rate at 10% that didn’t have inflation at 4% or above? The answer is no.” Of course, the U.S. is hardly alone in drinking its own debt Kool-Aide, and if you still need more evidence of who is buying the world’s major governments bonds, it’s simply their own central(ized) banks: Truth Dies as Centralized Government Controls Rise In short, control has not only distorted markets, it has distorted truth, and in the same breath, distorted any sense of trust in centralized “leadership” and/or credibility, which like real bond yields, grows more negative by the day. As Napier has said elsewhere, “bond yields are decoupled from inflation,” which is a polite way of saying that bond yields in particular, like the bond market in general, is an open lie. Stocks Decoupled from Reality Speaking of “decoupling” from reality in the wake of the “new rules” emerging from increasing centralized controls (economic, social and political), the stock market is no less of an open lie than the overtly subsidized bond market. After all, stocks love a generous central bank, one becoming more central to our financial lives with each passing day, mouse-click and newly “printed” dollar. Hard to believe? Then ask Warren Buffett’s infamous stock market valuation metric which measures total equity market cap as a percentage of GDP. As the graph below confirms, about the only thing growing under centralized control and its “new rules” is the mother of all stock bubbles. The “centralizers” in bed with the debt-drunk politicos call this “promising market growth” resulting from “accommodation,” but anyone who tracks markets already knows that debt-driven, money-printed “growth” is not growth at all—it’s merely a centralized aberration, as well as an open insult to natural market forces. More to the point, such top-heavy (and artificial) market predominance within U.S. GDP screams of an open charade, and graphs like the Buffett Indicator above are just one more reason to distrust a centralized system which has now fully devolved from free market to free prevarication. Pretty Words to Hide Scary Math Centralizers may be dishonest and openly distortive, but like all politically self-interested profiles, they are masters at putting lipstick on a pig through euphemistic word choice, of which “quantitative easing,” “stimulus,” “accommodation,” “MMT,” and “recovery’ are all classic examples. But there’s more… “Climate Change” Policies—Wise Altruism or Just More Centralized Control? As for further examples of the creative use of language to hide truth, it may come as a surprise to any of us who care about the planet that the sudden politicized interest in “climate change” may not be as altruistic or progressive as the politico’s would like you to believe. In a global backdrop of debt-driven desperation and increased centralization, leaders thirsty for any way to build credibility would have us admire their green initiative; but the real driver behind their plans may be less green than oil-colored. With all the inflationary forces colliding (extreme money supply expansion, fiscal deficits, governmental guarantees etc.), the last thing our not-so-trusted leaders want to confess is that oil prices, and oil supply, may be signaling an end to cheap oil. Rather than confess the myriad economic and political shock waves of a “peak oil” event, the powers that be would rather use “climate change” to justify their suddenly important war against fossil fuels to mask a pivot toward ever more centralized government control of your thinking and your energy consumption. Earlier in July, for example, the Financial Times announced that “in order for sustainable finance to work, we will need Central Planning.” Really? Wonderful, more central planning. This blunt declaration was made in regard to the EU’s new sustainable finance strategy and Green Bond Standard aimed at creating the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. Sounds noble? Who wouldn’t love “climate neutral”? But why does sustainable finance and climate neutrality require central planning? What’s likely being deliberately censored from this initiative is that troublesome little notion so in danger today, namely allowing free markets to decide which energy sources provide the highest “Energy Return on Invested Energy” (EROIE). Needless to say, when it comes to “bang for your buck” the best energy “rate of return” still comes from those pesky fossil fuels not windmills or nuclear reactors. Needless to say, if free market forces were in actual play, participants would use of the cheapest, most cost-efficient source for energy, again: Fossil fuels. Making headlines today, however, are global policymakers (from Yellen to the IEA) endeavoring (nobly?) to gut-punch interest in fossil fuels. The IEA has openly stated they want energy groups to stop producing oil and gas by 2050. But again: Is the motive truly noble? Is this about the environment? The planet’s safety? Or something else? Cynically (and I am a cynic), there may be a darker problem beneath the surface of this political shine, including the fact that the oil production beneath the surface of that same planet has not moved much at all in the last decade. In other words, has the world reached peak oil? Are policy makers deliberately attacking the free market use of energy sources to save the planet, or do they secretly believe peak oil (namely peak “cheap” oil) is a stark reality against which policy makers must now take extreme action? In sum, is “climate change” a politically correct ruse used to mask the much darker reality that “peak oil” is upon us, which would have a drastic impact on debt markets, geopolitics (think Saudi Arabia), and inflation (skyrocketing)? Certainly, “climate change” offers far better political optics than “peak oil” headlines and all that it would portend should affordable oil become a distant memory. More Centralization + More Spending + More Inflation = More Need to Prepare As I wrote in a book published just weeks before the COVID outbreak, the financial system was already and openly Rigged to Fail well before a pandemic became the new pretext for once unthinkable governmental influence (i.e., centralized control) over our markets and private lives. The evidence of increasing centralization is all around us, yet in an increasingly politicized media which effectively parrots (rather than questions) governmental policy, what is entirely absent is increasingly open and public debate (as well as math) on everything from COVID policy to monetary policy. Regardless of whether you feel governments are centralizing to benefit or control your future, the means to that centralized end will demand further spending, further debt-onboarding and hence further distortion of credit, equity, real estate and currency markets. As for currencies, be they paper, digitalized CBDC or some hybrid, informed investors recognized long ago that they will not be real stores of value, and hence the road ahead will certainly favor precious metals, as just about everything else “precious” about free markets and national currencies is behind us. Needless to say, this explains why some of the largest and most recent buyers of gold are the global central banks (Russia, Hungary, Brazil…) themselves.
  9. Shabs....you and the guy who carries your clubs.....that's a caddie....right?... .make it sound like only the rednecks in flyover country are questioning these vaccines.... Thing is.....there are independent thinking physicians all over the world that are questioning these career politicians and their minions on these vaccines... Even a guy like Eric Clapton is sharing his story and thoughts..... It's a very thoughtfully written and expressed....at least IMO.. https://americasfrontlinedoctors.org/frontlinenews/eric-clapton-after-covid-vaccination-i-should-never-have-gone-near-the-needle/
  10. Just a matter of time before it all hits the fan.... And it's not just the US.....look at the leaders in place in these western countries......just a bunch of clowns put into office.....Macron....Merkel... Johnson...Trudeau.....you see the raw fools they are in gathering like the G-7. A group of financial elites pull the strings for the west.....they were blindsided by Trump.... And the East has had their fill of being pushed into playing second fiddle to these western elites.....they have created BRICS....AIIB.....And a Gold backed Yuan to help level the playing field..... In the 60's Kennedy wanted to dump the Federal Reserve and Central Banking system from the US.....they killed him....Nixon was brought in to affect the change to the non gold backed FIAT system....which is why the whole world is in the mess it's in.....they dumped him and humiliated him... Biden/Harris are here to enact the next chapter.....and that's what we are seeing...... The problem is though ....for the elites.....people are more aware than ever....new concepts such as AI, blockchain and quantum computing are making it much more difficult to hide in the shadows........even their control of the media won't be enough..... But..... Enough of my rant....I think the good guys win.....and sooner than later..... CL
  11. Sure.....what's another $3 trillion on top of $30 trillion...won't affect you or I...... Just screws over the kids and grand kids....but hey......why should we worry about that.....right? CL
  12. As a seasoned citizen retiree every day is a weekend for me..... Still, I choose to be very active politically, socially and recreationally..... I even have time for some investing fun... Other than that, as the infamous B/A once suggested about me...... "coorslite21 probably lives in a box under a bridge and posts on his free Obama phone". I can tell you......life is pretty good under the bridge.... 😮🤣😉 CL
