Just because the U.S. government has made a mockery of the term "debt ceiling" by raising it 90+ times, doesn't mean that a debt ceiling doesn't exist. A limit to debt certainly exists and judging by its actions, the government is determined to finally reach it. In practice, it's not the U.S. government that will ultimately determine what the debt limit will be.
The market is always more powerful than the state, and nations across the world are divesting themselves of dollars and using other currencies at an increasing pace. The U.S. government must halt its reckless spending. The consequences of continuing down its current path must lead to a very severe economic crisis.
The hyper-meddling US Ambassador to Hungary, David Pressman, has blasted the Hungarian government's call for negotiations and a ceasefire in Ukraine, calling it "cynical." Washington has all but declared war on Hungary for not jumping on board for the war. Also today: Without Tucker...Fox tanks! Finally: are young people returning to religious faith?
It speaks volumes about Pentagon leadership that they are, according to Politico, celebrating the end of the Tucker Carlson news program. Tucker railed against the "woke" absurdities of "leaders" like Gen Milley and they hated him for it. But he was extremely popular among those expected to actually do the fighting. Wonder why they can't meet recruiting goals? Also today, Congress looks to pass bill to ensure Ukraine victory. Finally: Fauci blames science for his own Covid failures.
Was it criticism of the Ukraine war? Jan. 6th skepticism? Pharma skepticism? Too many Democrat guests? What triggered Fox execs to fire America's top-viewed newscaster? Also today: US warships near Sudan - looking for a nice little intervention? Finally: Biden tosses his hat back into the ring for 2024 - what's Trump's reaction?
As we learn more about the collusion between the Biden 2020 campaign and former senior US intelligence officials on the Hunter Biden laptop story, it seems more and more obvious that the US "deep state" played a major role in deciding who would win the election. Is an Administration that holds "democracy summits" to lecture the rest of the world actually guilty of undermining US democracy? Also today: US Afghan inspector general warns of massive Ukraine corruption. Finally: Biden Administration officials worried that a failed Ukraine counteroffensive will end US support for the war.

Move over Watergate. On or around Oct. 17, 2020, then-senior Biden campaign official Antony Blinken called up former acting CIA director Mike Morell to ask a favor: he needed high-ranking former US intelligence community officials to lie to the American people to save Biden’s lagging campaign from a massive brewing scandal.
The problem was that Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, had abandoned his laptop at a repair shop and the explosive contents of the computer were leaking out. The details of the Biden family’s apparent corruption and the debauchery of the former vice-president’s son were being reported by the New York Post, and with the election less than a month away, the Biden campaign needed to kill the story.
So, according to newly-released transcripts of Morell’s testimony before the House judiciary Committee, Blinken “triggered” Morell to put together a letter for some 50 senior intelligence officials to sign - using their high-level government titles - to claim that the laptop story “had all the hallmarks of a Russian disinformation campaign.”
In short, at the Biden campaign’s direction Morell launched a covert operation against the American people to undermine the integrity of the 2020 election. A letter signed by dozens of the highest-ranking former CIA, DIA, and NSA officials would surely carry enough weight to bury the Biden laptop story. It worked. Social media outlets prevented any reporting on the laptop from being posted and the mainstream media could easily ignore the story as it was merely “Russian propaganda.”
Asked recently by Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) why he agreed to draft the false sign-on letter, Morell testified that he wanted to “help Vice President Biden … because I wanted him to win the election.” Morell also likely expected to be named by President Biden to head up the CIA when it came time to call in favors.
The Democrats and the mainstream media have relentlessly pushed the lie that the ruckus inside the US Capitol on Jan. 6th 2021 was a move by President Trump to overthrow the election results. Hundreds of “trespassers” were arrested and held in solitary confinement without trial to bolster the false narrative that a conspiracy to steal the election was taking place.
It turns out that there really was a conspiracy to steal the election, but it was opposite of what was reported. Just as the Steele Dossier was a Democratic Party covert action to plant the lie that the Russians were pulling strings for Trump, the “Russian disinformation campaign” letter was a lie to deflect scrutiny of the Biden family’s possible corruption in the final days of the campaign.
Did the Biden campaign’s disinformation campaign help rig the election in his favor? Polls suggest that Biden would not have been elected had the American electorate been informed about what was on Hunter Biden’s laptop. So yes, they cheated in the election.
The Democrats and the mainstream media are still at it, however. Now they are trying to kill the story of how they killed the story of the Biden laptop. This is a scandal that would once upon a time have ended in resignation, impeachment, and/or plenty of jail time. If they successfully bury this story, I hate to say it but there is no more rule of law in what has become the American banana republic.
Over the last 20 years, dollar reserves around the world have dropped from 73% to 47%. The world is clearly "de-dollarizing." Endless wars, sanctions, wokism, the questionable indictment of a former president, and a long list of unconstitutional abuses all appear to have turned off other nations. They are jumping ship and don't want to be a part of it. America was never supposed to be an empire in the first place. It's a century-old aberration. A return to a limited government that respects individual liberty is long overdue.
The Biden Administration has indicted four Americans and charged them with conspiracy to spread Russian propaganda and acting as unregistered Russian agents. The four are members of the African People’s Socialist Party, which has opposed US foreign policy since 1971. They face 15 years in prison. Also today, the Biden Administration announced another $300 million in military aid to Ukraine. Might these two stories be related? Also today, RFK announced his bid to be the Democratic Party's candidate for US president.
Bloomberg has reported that the US has struck a deal to sell 400 ground-based Harpoon missiles to Taiwan, which will increase tensions with China. It looks as if, as the Ukraine war is lost, the Biden Administration - backed by Republicans - are looking for a "new" Ukraine. Also today: Peace is breaking out in the Middle East as the US is looking more and more irrelevant. Finally: Germany shoots itself in the head. Again.
Rep. Matt Gaetz has introduced legislation to compel the Biden Administration to inform Congress of the number of US troops in Ukraine and all information about US military assistance to Ukraine. This is an important oversight function and should be supported. Also today: Ted Carpenter tells us why sanctions don't work. Why do we have 200 troops in Taiwan?
