 Transportation Secretary Warns: "There Are Going To Be Challenges" With Flights On Fourth Of July Weekend, June 29, 2022:"In a matter of days, travel demand is set to soar as 3.55 million people are expected to fly over the Fourth of July holiday weekend. Concerns are already mounting as persistent pilot and crew shortages and understaffing among the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) are expected to create another perfect storm of flight disruptions. 

On Tuesday evening, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg spoke with NBC Nightly News' Lester Holt about the travel mess and offered no reassurance about an immediate resolution to chronic flight delays and cancellations plaguing airports across the country."

 White House Is Quietly Modeling For $200 Oil "Shock", June 30, 2022:"And here is the punchline: at the current record pace of SPR drainage, one way or another the Biden admin will have to end its artificial attempts to keep the price of oil lower some time in October (or risk entering a war with China over Taiwan with virtually no oil reserve). This means that unless Putin ends his war some time in the next 5 months, there is a non-trivial chance that oil will hit a record price around $200 - precisely the price the White House is bracing for - a few days before the midterms. While translates into $10+ gasoline."

There will be a huge influx of people. This is our safe harbor, which I have declared,” Hochul remarked."

 Why Food Inflation Is Only Getting Started, June 17, 2022:"The US has just experienced an 8.8% increase in food prices. The problem (and there are many, actually) is that this doesn’t take into account the spiraling costs farmers are now experiencing.

It’s worth remembering that because farmers pay upfront and only recoup their expenses at the point of sale/harvest months later, all the opex they’ve experienced has a lag.

This lag is dependent on produce but certainly, we’re looking at a tsunami of food inflation 12 to 18 months out."

 Here's 18 Signs That The Economic Meltdown We've Been Waiting For Has Already Begun, June 17, 2022:"In all my years of writing, I have never seen more economic pessimism than I am seeing right now.  Over the past couple of months there has been a monumental shift in public sentiment, and now just about everyone realizes that we are heading into very troubled economic times.  Of course there were still a few economic optimists that were searching for a ray of hope, but the Federal Reserve left no room for optimism when it announced the largest interest rate hike in 28 years on Wednesday.  When the Fed aggressively raised rates in the early 1980s, it resulted in one of the most painful recessions in American history.  Unfortunately, many believe that what is ahead of us is going to be even worse."

 The Biden Administration's Ignorant Energy Policies: Higher Gas Prices Are Only the Beginning, 6/16/2022:"Actually, that our politicians would think despite all the evidence before them, that somehow, we can wave a magic wand and accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles by a factor of 20 when we don't have enough lithium, nickel or cobalt to even support the current growth trajectory. It's just crazy. Where's the diesel going to come from to mine all the cobalt and nickel and lithium that we're going to need?"

New Reuters Survey Finds That Trust In Mainstream News Is Rapidly Declining, June 18, 2022:"It probably does not come as much of a surprise to most people today, but it is now confirmed by the mainstream media's own surveys - They are rapidly losing their audience and their influence.

The Reuters Institute For The Study Of Journalism runs a yearly project designed to gauge public perceptions of media, specifically corporate media, and how much trust the MSM has garnered.  Spoiler Alert:  They haven't garnered any.  In fact, over the course of the past two years establishment journalists have alienated a large portion of the general public."

Maher: Biden Tried to Get off Fossil Fuels without a Replacement, and Now We’re Begging the Saudis for Oil, June 18, 2022:"On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher argued that when people try to get off fossil fuels before there is a replacement ready, “they wind up going back to even worse fossil fuels.” And that this has happened in the United States and President Joe Biden going to Saudi Arabia “hat in hand, begging them for oil” after vowing to reduce oil drilling is an example of that.

 The Real Deadpool: America's Drought Is Worse Than You Think, June 14, 2022:"We were foolish enough to believe we could water the entire southwestern U.S. with the Colorado River. Nothing could go wrong. Now it has, and tens of millions of people are staring down the barrel of real trouble.

As much as 75% of the water from Lake Mead (fed by the Colorado River) goes to agriculture…so now we have a potential food production problem. Major cities like Las Vegas depend on that water for its citizens…now we have a potential personal survival problem for local residents."

 Fauci admits 'not enough data' to show recommended boosters for 5-year-olds work:"Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted Thursday that even though the Biden administration recommends that everyone over the age of 5 gets a booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, there is currently insufficient evidence to prove that the boosters actually lower rates of hospitalization or death in children.

During a Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., asked Fauci if he was aware of any studies that showed a reduction in deaths or hospitalizations for children who had received boosters."

 Federal court rules against Biden administration on illegal immigration again, Jun 12, 2022:"“The Biden Administration is refusing to take custody of criminal aliens despite federal statutes requiring it to do so. Instead, Defendants have issued and implemented unlawful agency memoranda that allow criminal aliens already convicted of felony offenses to roam free in the United States. Such aliens belong in federal custody, as Congress required,” they maintain."

What We Learned From Hating the Unvaccinated...A MUST Read! Jun 14, 2022:"The battlefield is still warm, following Canada’s war on the unvaccinated. The mandates have let up, and both sides stumble back into something that looks like the old normal — except that there is a fresh and present injury done to the people we tried to break. And no one wants to talk about it.

Only weeks ago, it was the admitted goal of our own leaders to make life unlivable for the unvaccinated. And as a deputized collective, we force-multiplied that pain, taking the fight into our families, friendships, and workplaces. Today, we face the hard truth that none of it was justified — and, in doing that, uncover a precious lesson."

Abbott baby formula plant closes again because of flooding, June 16, 2022:"Abbott Nutrition has halted production at the Michigan plant that helped drive a nationwide baby formula shortage after storms pummeled the region and caused widespread flooding.

In a statement issued late Wednesday, the company said it stopped producing EleCare and other specialty and metabolic formulas after severe thunderstorms this week knocked out power and caused flood damage in and around Sturgis, Mich. Abbott, which restarted the Sturgis plant less than two weeks ago after a months-long closure triggered the crisis, said heavy rain overwhelmed the city’s storm water system, flooding parts of Sturgis, “including areas of our plant.”"

 With Recession Now Guaranteed, The "One-Term" White House Begins To Panic, June 15, 2022:"America's 'Misery Index' - a broad measure of household wellbeing that combines unemployment rates with inflation rates - has not been this high since President Biden was last in The White House (as VP for Obama in 2011). However, it's different this time as previously it was labor market strains that spiked the 'misery', this time it is the soaring cost of living."

US Nursing Homes Face Closure Risks From Staffing Shortages, June 6, 2022:"Almost three quarters of nursing homes say they’re at risk of closing due to staff shortages, with more than half operating at a loss, according to a survey. If things don’t improve, most fear that resources won’t be enough to keep them in business for more than a year.

Expenses are 41% higher than a year ago, and more than half of those polled said finding workers is even more difficult this year, according to a study from the American Health Care Association released Monday. The staff shortfalls are forcing homes to turn away potential residents at a time when occupancy rates are already far lower than before the pandemic."

 US inflation at new 40-year high as price increases spread, June 10, 2022:"The prices of gas, food and most other goods and services jumped in May, raising inflation to a new four-decade high and giving American households no respite from rising costs.

Consumer prices surged 8.6% last month from a year earlier, faster than April’s year-over-year increase of 8.3%, the Labor Department said Friday. The new inflation figure, the highest since 1981, will heighten pressure on the Federal Reserve to continue raising interest rates aggressively."

Biden Raising Gas Prices On Purpose, Top Republican Says:"Biden characterized the soaring cost of gasoline in the United States as an “incredible transition” on Monday while taking questions from reporters during his trip to Japan.

“When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” he said alongside Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.

The comment came as the national average cost of a gallon of gas sat at a record-high $4.596, with several states paying more than $6.00."
