BREAKING: The Federal Reserve intensified its bid to tame high inflation by raising its key interest rate by three-quarters of a point — the largest hike since 1994. It also signaled more large rate increases to come, raising the risk of a recession. https://t.co/vfrqGQLMFW

NBC News: Federal Reserve raises key interest rate 0.75% as it hardens fight against inflation: The central bank delivered its biggest interest rate hike since 1994 as the latest inflation data show consumer prices are still climbing at a record pace. … Keep the good times comin’, Deadly Ernest!
We’re not going back to the false promises of trickle-down economics.

The elites, the MSM, the democrat base used to ‘turd-shining politicians’, and establishment Washington DC had a YUGE issue with Pres. Trump’s “covfefe” plain talking. But average Americans felt he was talking with them, not at them.
I just can’t for the life of me figure out WTAF direction Biden’s gaffe-jammed and inappropriate angry yammering is supposed to reach out to. Yesterday, old Joe figured union folks enjoy being shouted at like a junkyard dog would. And that is in addition to once again lying his diapered-ass off with bullshit easily ‘fact-checked’ but the MSM just “meh” shrugs it off.

On Jan. 20, 2021, Zacks Equity Research reported that the Dow Jones Industrial average gained 116.26 points, closing at 30,930.52: “Notably, 18 components of the 30-stock index ended in the green while 12 in red. Moreover, the Nasdaq Composite finished at 13,197.18, surging 1.5% or 198.68 points due to strong performance by large-cap tech stocks. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 advanced 0.8% to end at 3,798.91.”
On Monday, the S&P 500 entered bear market territory, losing all gains made during Biden’s presidency and forcing Americans on the cusp of retirement to make difficult choices as their retirement savings plans are wiped out.

Much of that “loss of refining capacity” for conventional fuels is in plants that are converting to produce alternative fuels.
Isn’t that what the Administration wants?

BREAKING: Per federal source, DHS is preparing to discipline multiple horseback Border Patrol agents who were accused of “whipping” Haitian migrants in Del Rio last summer. I’m told DHS will imminently allege “administrative violations”, agents will be able to respond @FoxNews

Per federal source, this announcement is expected to come down any day now. It’s unclear what “administrative violations” the BP agents will be accused of, but they are not being accused of any criminal conduct. The horseback unit involved is based out of Carrizo Springs, TX.
— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) June 14, 2022
It has been nearly 9 months since this incident took place. The agents have been taken off their normal duties and have not been allowed to have contact w/ migrants since.
President Biden assured the public at the time that “there will be consequences” for the agents involved.

There’s video of the whole interaction and there is no whipping. These men were cleared of the “whipping” charge. Their moral is already in the shitter, but they stay on duty. The US Border Patrol should go on strike, and that includes the damn diaper changing and meal serving to illegals in the facilities.

“No Security for YOU” and Gun Grabbin’:
The House passed a bill Tuesday to increase security for Supreme Court justices’ immediate families, with 27 Democrats voting against, less than a week after a man was arrested for allegedly plotting to kill Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The bill that’s now headed to President Biden’s desk for final approval provides for 24-hour protection for Supreme Court justices’ families, similar to what is already provided for some members of the executive and legislative branches…
Democrats who opposed the bill argued that it also needed to include protection for court staff, including clerks, and their families…

J.J. Sefton @ AoSHQ: “I Feel Safer Already”
Recall that the former Soviet Union locked people up in insane asylums because they deemed them crazy for wanting to emigrate to the west. That was literally a “red flag.” Imagine a red flag law that allowed the confiscation of anyone’s firearms if they knew the hapless patsies of the FBI’s Gretchen Whitmer entrapment scam. Hell, if you lived on the same block as any of them. You don’t need to be Nostra-freaking-damus to see where this is going. It is a fact that our law enforcement agencies and most of our courts are nothing more than corrupt rubber stamp enforcers of this junta and have zero regard for the protections afforded to us in the Constitution. Worse, my feelings about the mindset of the average beat cop, National Guardsmen or uniformed military soldier when given orders from this junta.
If you oppose crackpot race theories, transexual deviants grooming your children, or as “Va” Gina McCarthy shrieks “the transition to green energy,” then you’re crazy. And sure as night follows day, you need to have your weapons confiscated since your dangerous “insane” thoughts are a red flag.
The under-fire DA, though, is sticking to his soft-on-crime agenda and, publicly at least, continuing the charade that his woke policies are a good thing. “There is nothing new about there being resistance when you’re trying to bring meaningful change and you’re trying to change society,” Krasner said this week sounding like Chesa Boudin. “What they are doing in terms of impeachment is clearly without a legal basis, it is clearly unconstitutional, and that will all come out as this proceeds — if it proceeds at all,” he claimed trying to brush aside the scrutiny.
But in reality, the City of Brotherly Love is not so loving these days — violent crime has skyrocketed since Krasner took office in 2018. In 2021, Philly was one of 12 cities to smash their annual homicide record set in 1990 with more than 520 slayings. In December of last year, Krasner was asked about the spiking crime in the city whose laws he’s supposed to enforce and whose citizens he’s supposed to protect. His response, as Townhall reported, was literally unbelievable:
“We don’t have a crisis of lawlessness, we don’t have a crisis of crime, we don’t have a crisis of violence,” the district attorney said at his weekly news briefing in South Philadelphia according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. “It’s important that we don’t let this become mushy and bleed into the notion that there is some kind of big spike in crime,” Krasner added.
That kind of brazen ignorance and attempt to brush aside a record-setting number of homicides as not a crime or violence crisis — while still refusing to take a tough-on-crime position — that made him a target for those who want to see law and order restored in Philadelphia.
Instead of cracking down on crime and putting criminals behind bars, Krasner has, for years, pursued “shorter sentences, diverting low-level offenses from the justice system, and charging crimes at a lower level.”…
