"When once a Republic is corrupted, there is no possibility of remedying any of the growing evils but by removing the corruption and restoring its lost principles; every other correction is either useless or a new evil." -- Thomas Jefferson

Liz Cheney’s resounding loss, initially elected due to her lineage, contrasts sharply with media portrayal. The fervor stems from her anti-Trump stance, revealing an uneasy alliance between liberals and controversial factions like the US Security State, neocons, the Cheney family, and the Lincoln Project.

In a concerning economic landscape, bank liquidity and funding are rapidly declining, and the Business Term Funding Program (BTFP) is running out of time, with just three months left. The situation is exacerbated by subprime debt, comprising 21% ($332 billion) of outstanding auto loans, of which roughly $24.5 billion is severely delinquent.

Renowned investor Howard Marks warns, “Securing loans is becoming tougher, posing challenges for businesses needing refinancing.” This sentiment points to impending obstacles for businesses seeking financial support.

 Coleridge Stroud III is serving a sentence of 38 years to life at Folsom State Prison

Houston Texans rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud's cleats delivered a message that hit close to home when they defeated the Denver Broncos at home on Sunday afternoon.

 

Through the NFL's "My Cause My Cleats" initiative, which allows players to wear cleats to break the normal team uniform code for something they want to advocate for, Stroud had two pairs of cleats that went toward prison reform. Used to point.

 

When he took the field at Houston's NRG Stadium for his pre-game warmups, he wore black and gold cleats with a large hashtag reading "#REFORM", which calls for prison reform.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg warned that the Western military alliance should be ready for bad news from the Ukrainian front as Kyiv continues to defend against Russia’s all-out invasion.

“Wars develop in phases,” Stoltenberg said in an interview Saturday with German broadcaster ARD. “We have to support Ukraine in both good and bad times,” he said.

“We should also be prepared for bad news,” Stoltenberg added, without being more specific.

His comments come as Western allies debate over ammunition and financial aid for Ukraine, and as Moscow boosts its troop levels. Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on Friday to increase the number of soldiers by some 170,000 to a total of 1.3 million.

The front lines have moved little in recent months despite Kyiv’s counteroffensive during the summer. But the Ukrainians have used cruise missiles to push back the Russian fleet in the Black Sea and have caused damage deep in Russian territory

The U.S.-led NATO alliance held its first NATO-Ukraine Council meeting this week in Brussels. As usual, the cliched promises of supporting the Kiev regime to the end were trotted out by all and sundry.

In truth, these NATO events for Ukraine, and more generally, are becoming yawn fests.

The whole sordid charade is only postponing the reality that the proxy war in Ukraine against Russia is a debacle for the Western powers. This is not something to gloat over. It is a tragedy and an abomination.

Up to 400,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed, as well as tens of thousands of Russian military personnel. Total casualty figures are no doubt in the millions. In addition, millions of civilians have been displaced as refugees in Russia and throughout Europe. Hundreds of billions of dollars and euros have been raided from Western taxpayers to fund this bloody fiasco. Not only that but international tensions have been heightened between nuclear powers at a perilous pitch not seen since the Cuban missile crisis in 1962 at the depth of the Cold War.

Pro-Palestine demonstrations in the UK have continued into the eighth successive weekend, as protesters gathered in cities and towns across the country to demand a permanent ceasefire in the besieged Gaza Strip.  

Tens of thousands of people held protests on Saturday as part of a  "Day of Actions,”  organized by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC), an alternative to the larger marches seen in previous weeks. 

The protests were more diffuse as rallies and vigils were held in Manchester, Hull, Exeter, Bristol, Glasgow, Canterbury, Leeds, Sheffield, Cambridge and across most London boroughs.

The group demanded an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza and said its primary motivation was concern over further civilian casualties as Israel resumed its renewed attack on Gaza after the week-long ceasefire.

The president of the COP28 climate conference, Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, has cast great doubt over zero-emissions policies being pushed by the United Nations, claiming there is “no science” to show that stage-by-stage cuts in fossil fuel use would decrease global heating, the Guardian reported on Sunday.

The chair of the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference, now underway in Dubai, claimed that a gradual reduction in fossil fuel consumption would hold back sustainable development and drag humanity back to the Paleolithic period.

His comments, made in response to questions from former UN special envoy for climate change Mary Robinson during a live online event in late November, are fundamentally at odds with the position of the UN and its secretary general Antonio Guterres.

The RRP facility is used to take excess liquidity out of the system. Banks have a ton of extra deposits that they would loan out, and if there’s too little demand for loans they’d loan it at less than 5% (for short term loans).

While the Case-Shiller National home price index is rising again, it has been slowing since March 2022. This is happening as “the honey pot” (aka, M2 Money printing) growth is now negative. While real hourly compensation growth is slightly, the average rate of growth since April 1, 2021, is -2.1%. (Not exactly what Biden wants to broadcast as a feature of Bidenomics).
