Ron Paul: Debt Is The Real Pandemic

According to the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest “Update on the Budget Outlook,” this year’s $3.3 trillion federal deficit is not just three times larger than last year: it is the largest federal deficit in history. The CBO update also predicts that the federal debt will equal 104 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP) next year and will reach 108 percent of GDP by 2030.

The CBO update also shows that the Social Security, Medicare, and highway trust funds will all be bankrupt by 2031. This will put pressure on Congress to bail out the trust funds thus further increasing the debt.

This year’s spike in federal spending was caused by the multi-trillion dollar coronavirus relief/economic stimulus bills passed by Congress and signed by the president. However, spending had already increased by $937 billion from the time President Trump was sworn in until the lockdown.

Federal spending is unlikely to be reduced no matter who wins the presidential election. Former Vice President Joe Biden has proposed increasing spending on everything from Obamacare to militarism to “green” cronyism. Yet some progressives are attacking Biden for being to “stingy” in his spending proposals. Even more distressing is how few progressives are critical of Biden’s support for increasing the military budget.

With some notable exceptions, such as his infrastructure plan, President Trump is not proposing any massive new spending programs. However, he is not promising to stop increasing, much less cut, federal spending.


Gallup Poll Shows Public Support for Sports Has Plummeted Since BLM Protests

According to a new Gallup poll, more Americans have a negative view of pro sports than a positive one.

This makes a lot of sense, given how upset many fans have been at professional sports leagues’ embrace of left-wing politics in recent months.

Following the return of sports from the purgatory that was the coronavirus pandemic, ratings were expected to be higher than ever.

However, with their return, most sports leagues brought with them pandering to the radical Black Lives Matter movement. This has been a big turnoff to large numbers of fans, as the polling data from Gallup shows.

In 2019, 45 percent of Americans viewed the sports industry positively as opposed to 25 percent who viewed it negatively, according to Gallup.

In 2020, those numbers have nearly flipped, with 40 percent of Americans now viewing the sports industry negatively and only 30 percent viewing it positively.

Lancaster protesters held on whopping $1 million bail each on riot charges

A Pennsylvania judge threw the book at several protesters accused of rioting — by setting their bail at $1 million each — in the wake of the police shooting of a knife-wielding Lancaster man

Lancaster police nabbed a dozen people and one juvenile for staging the riots around 3 a.m. Monday in clashes that culminated in police deploying tear gas at the crowd.

The overnight violence came on the heels of the death of Ricardo Munoz, the mentally ill 27-year-old who was seen on bodycam footage charging with a knife in hand at a cop. The officer shot and killed Munoz Sunday afternoon outside his mother’s house in downtown Lancaster.

The mob marched from the scene of the shooting on Laurel Street to the police station, chucking glass bottles, rocks, bricks, gallon jugs filled with liquid and plastic road barricades at cops, police said.


Top Florida Democrat Comes Out as Bisexual After Being Caught Naked and Passed Out in His Own Vomit with Muscle Hooker

Billed by Democrats as “THE NEXT OBAMA”, former Democrat nominee for Governor in the state of Florida made the news back in March.

Andrew Gi
llum was named in a police report that involved baggies of crystal meth and two other men in Miami Beach hotel room last night.

The police report first published online by Candace Owens, is extremely concerning.

Three brothers accused of raping 10-year-old girl in Louisiana

Three brothers are charged with raping a 10-year-old Louisiana girl who locked herself in a bedroom when they offered her money for sex, police said.

Two of the suspects, identified as Raul Paz-Perez and Wilmer Paz-Perez, both 35, were arrested Saturday on a charge of first-degree rape involving a juvenile under the age of 13, Kenner police said.

A third brother, 31-year-old Elder Paz-Perez, is still being sought as of early Tuesday on the same charge, Lt. Michael Cunningham told The Post.
“We don’t know where he is,” Cunningham said. “He may be out of state.”

Elder Paz-Perez is the boyfriend of the 10-year-old girl’s mother. He and his brothers had been living with the girl and her family, including her 15-year-old sister and two stepsiblings, at the time of the alleged attack, Cunningham said.

The three brothers were alone with the 10-year-old girl at a home in Kenner on Wednesday when they made sexual advances toward her, offering her money for sex acts, Cunningham said.

The young girl locked herself in a bedroom, but one of the brothers managed to bust inside, Cunningham said.


Who’s the Boss? Kamala Harris Speaks About a “Harris Administration” in Virtual Arizona Speech

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) made the one gaffe a vice presidential nominee should never make when she spoke of a “Harris administration” in a virtual campaign speech Saturday. In normal times this would be seen as a harmless gaffe to have a laugh over. However, with running mate Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s mental condition perceived by observers to have deteriorated this year, such a statement can be seen not as a blunder but as a slip of the mask revealing who would be actually be calling the shots in a Biden-Harris administration. Harris immediately cleaned up the gaffe.

Harris made the comment when she was virtually addressing a round table meeting of Latino small business owners. The “Harris administration” comment was apparently only reported by Ronald J. Hansen with the Arizona Republic.


Former Technical Director Of NSA Tells Feds Where to Find All The Data Mueller Team ‘Erased’ – Thought They Erased …

A former director of the NSA, the focus of the documentary, A Good American, who developed algorithms for a Federal program called “Thin Thread” that was shuttered 3 weeks prior to the 9/11 attacks, posted on Twitter that he knew where to find the data that Robert Mueller’s team reportedly wiped clean before it could be investigated.

“Re Muller team deleting text msgs: This won’t do. If gov wants those msgs, all they have to do is go to NSA Stellarwind data base and pull them out as all sms going over the cell network are captured & stored forever. @DevinNunes knows this,” Binney wrote.

Recently a Judicial Watch lawsuit by President Tom Fitton uncovered information suggesting that up to 30 phones containing text messages between the Mueller investigative team were damaged after they came into question in an investigation into their actions to find cause to remove President Donald J. Trump from office.

Lawmakers are calling for an investigation into the phone data.


Biden Pushes Gun Control Less Than 24 Hours After Attempted Assassination On Deputies

That didn’t take long.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden called for gun control less than 24 hours after two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were gravely injured by a gunman who opened fire as they sat in their squad car.

“Weapons of war have no place in our communities,” Biden wrote on Twitter. “We need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.”


Leaked Internal Email From DHS Shows Trump was Right, Antifa/Anarchist Violence is Organized

Emails proving that President Trump was right to call "protestors" members of "Antifa" have been made public by CBS News. The emails that were written back in July, were leaked to CBS News on Monday.

Catherine Herridge from CBS News posted on Twitter about a series of emails from July about the violence in Portland Oregon, that had been leaked to CBS news from the Department of Homeland Security, that showed President Donald J. Trump was right to call Antifa an organized group.

These emails are an important development in the national conversation about how President Donald J. Trump and law enforcement should handle the violent uprisings that have plagued many American towns and cites.

“Confirming what we suspected and knew all along: Antifa is an organized movement to carry out acts of violence against state, local, and federal authorities,” Independent reporter Ian Miles Cheong, wrote.

It is especially important in understand the origins of the violence Americans face just 50 days from the next Presidential election.

#Whistleblower#PortlandProtest Breaking: According to this @DHSgov internal email, obtained @CBSNews, former Acting Under Secretary for Intelligence & Analysis Brian Murphy wrote colleagues on July 25th that the Portland violence was not “opportunistic” but “organized”,” Herridge posted.

Oddly, The discovery came from emails that were obtained in response to Democrat Adam Schiff, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee who claimed, last week, that based on Murphy’s claims the administration of Donald J. Trump was censoring information for political purposes.

Mondays email discovery proves that was not true.

Judge Rules COVID-19 Directives by Democrat Pennsylvania Governor and Crazy Health Director Deemed Unconstitutional

The Democrats’ actions in Pennsylvania are insane and most likely will cost them the 2020 election. They won’t be able to steal enough votes to stop the massive rebuke of their insane policies.

Way back in May we reported on Tom Wolf, the Democrat Pennsylvania Governor, who popped his lid at the notion that counties were planning on opening up without his approval and in defiance of his orders. In the minds of the democrats, only they are allowed to decree when businesses are allowed to operate. In fact, Governor Wolf is vowing to withhold funding from these counties.

Wolf somehow framed this an act of “surrender” and “cowardice.” Because somehow in the minds of the democrats it’s brave to stay quarantined in your own home.

The Franklin County Journal reported in May:


DOJ launches probe into Bolton book for possible classified information disclosures

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has launched a criminal investigation into whether former White House national security adviser John Bolton illegally disclosed classified information in his memoir that was released earlier this year, The Hill has confirmed.

The agency has convened a grand jury and subpoenaed Bolton's publisher, Simon & Schuster, for records related to communications surrounding the tell-all book, "The Room Where It Happened," The New York Times first reported.
The DOJ declined to comment when asked to confirm the investigation. "Ambassador Bolton emphatically rejects any claim that he acted improperly, let alone criminally, in connection with the publication of his book, and he will cooperate fully, as he has throughout, with any official inquiry into his conduct."

The investigation was opened after the DOJ received a referral from Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe.

HUH? Biden Touts Actions of “Obama-Biden Administration” – Then Says, “This is Just the Beginning if We Get Re-Elected” (VIDEO)

77-year-old Joe Biden on Monday delivered remarks on the wildfires ravaging western states and twisted himself into pretzel making the connection to climate change.

Biden blamed President Trump for the wildfires caused by arsonists and failed Democrat policies that have reduced the number of controlled burns.

“If you give a climate arsonist four more years in the White House, why would anyone be surprised if we have more America ablaze?” Biden said.

Then things got weird.


Connecticut to fine people who don't wear masks

Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont (D) said Monday that the state will impose fines on people who do not adhere to the state’s mask mandate and limits on event capacity.

Under a new executive order issued from Lamont, residents will be required to pay $100 fines for not wearing masks, up to $250 for going to large unauthorized events and up to $500 for planning unauthorized events, according to the Hartford Courant.

Under present rules, events are limited to 25 people indoors and 100 people outdoors.

Connecticut Chief Operating Officer Josh Geballe said the order is set to take effect Thursday at midnight. He told the newspaper the state has struggled with how to enforce the mandates.


Mainstream media ignores groundbreaking revelation

Infowars’ Owen Shroyer asks if the news that George Floyd was a police informant totally destroys the entire BLM narrative.

Jack Posobiec released a document on Saturday showing Floyd was cooperating with either the Minneapolis Police Department, the FBI or another federal agency as a “snitch” before he was killed.


Breonna Taylor's family to receive $12M settlement

The city of Louisville has reached a $12 million settlement with the family of Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old Black woman who was shot and killed in her own home by plainclothes Louisville police officers in March.

Initial news of the deal came Tuesday morning, just over six months to the day that Taylor was killed. The New York Times and the Courier Journal first reported the specific amount of the settlement, which was already thought to be a multi-million deal.

The deal is the largest settlement that the city has paid in a police misconduct case, shattering the previous top figure of $8.5 million, according to the Courier Journal.

Letter from 235 officials also criticizes Obama administration’s hollowing out of America’s national security

President Trump received the endorsement of hundreds of senior military leaders just days after The Atlantic Magazine released a discredited hit piece claiming Trump mocked fallen soldiers.

In a letter inscribed with 235 signatures, the military leadership admits that America is besieged by foreign and domestic enemies, and that Trump is the only “proven leader” able to confront them.

“The 2020 election affords the American people an urgently needed opportunity to affirm their devotion to the Constitution of the United States and to the American way of life. As senior leaders of America’s military, we took an oath to defend the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic,” the letter states.


California Judge Eschews Religious Liberty, Allows LA County To Shut Down Church Services

The heavyweight constitutional battle between Los Angeles County and Pastor John MacArthur’s Grace Community Church continues, with LA County scoring the latest victory.

Last week a judge ruled that the county could shut down the church, issuing a preliminary injunction prohibiting the church from holding indoor services until the case gets sorted out in the courts.

A final decision, at least at the California Superior Court level, is expected this week. 

Grace Community Church has been on the front lines of the battle to preserve the First Amendment right to worship in the time of COVID-19.The congregation has been meeting in person since last month, despite orders from Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom that churches in some counties remain shuttered for indoor services.

A judge had previously ruled the church was allowed to hold services indoors if the congregants wore masks and stood six feet apart.

Officials haven’t just sought to shut down the church, they’ve fined the church for not having county-mandated social distancing signs in the right place and terminated the church’s lease on a parking lot they’ve held for decades. They’ve even threatened MacArthur with arrest. .

Los Angeles County, like so many other governmental bodies out there, has spent its resources actively fighting churches that want to meet. Meanwhile, as the Thomas More Society — who is representing Grace Community Church in the suit — pointed out, officials have given preferential treatment to Black Lives Matter protests.

Hikers discover bear eating man at Great Smoky Mountains campsite

A group of hikers in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park ended their trek in horror after discovering a bear dining on human remains.

While walking the North Carolina arm of the Hazel Creek Trail, just a few miles from the Tennessee border, the group passed what appeared to be a deserted campsite, where they encountered a scattering of body parts. Nearby, a bear was spotted “scavenging the area,” according to a park press release.

Park rangers received a call just after 7 p.m. Friday, as soon as the hikers returned to an area with cellular coverage.

“Staff arrived at campsite 82 shortly after midnight and confirmed the report of a deceased adult human male,” park officials said, the Charlotte Observer reported Saturday.


Unhinged Cher Declares Trump a Mass Murderer, Suggests Death Penalty

"Thank goodness, Cher just said something outrageous and absurd about President Donald Trump. It’s been a few weeks, so I figured there might be something wrong" said Douglas Gordon.

In fact, it’s been almost a month since she went on a strange rant about wanting to volunteer at the post office, assumedly so it could better handle the mail-in ballots it’s going to have to process this November. That’s just what the U.S. Postal Service needs — a 74-year-old chanteuse who’s never been trained in the ways of letter delivery volunteering in the Beverly Hills post office. That would have been the worst thing to happen to the ZIP Code 90210 since Shannen Doherty left the show.

Rest assured that Cher is still kicking, though, tweeting strings of strange emojis and all-caps reproofs to the president.


Cher was responding to Bob Woodward’s interviews with the president in which Trump said he downplayed COVID-19 because he didn’t want people to panic. This apparently counted as directly killing people to the woman behind “If I Could Turn Back Time” and half-behind “I Got You, Babe.”

Author Peter Schweizer blasts media for ignoring Hunter Biden's deals

'That lack of curiosity is astonishing'

Author Peter Schweizer, who is featured in the new documentary "Riding the Dragon: The Bidens' Chinese Secrets," is chastising the media for refusing to explore Hunter Biden's business deals.

"The mainstream media has not aggressively questioned the Bidens on this, and to me, that lack of curiosity is astonishing. Because we all know if this were the Trumps instead of the Bidens, they would be getting massive scrutiny," he said in an interview with the "John Solomon Reports" podcast, Just the News reported.

Hunter Biden was paid more than $3 million to serve on the board of a corrupt Ukrainian gas company seeking help from the State Department while his father was in charge of Ukraine policy for the Barack Obama administration. And he traveled with his father aboard Air Force Two to China to secure a $1 billion business deal with a state-owned company.

Joe Biden, the Democrats' nominee for president, has deflected questions about his son's dealings, claiming he didn't know much.


Man installs electric fence to protect his Trump 2020 sign

A Massachusetts man resorted to installing an electric fence to stop thieves from stealing his Trump 2020 sign off his front yard.
John Oliveira, of New Bedford, said he’s fed up after six of his previous Trump signs vanished, prompting him to file two police reports. Another sign urging people to vote wasn’t touched, he said.
“I’m done with this,” he told WJAR in a report Tuesday. “I’m just trying to make a statement and say what I believe in. The electric fence is a deterrent. Horse wire carries a charge. It will certainly send a message.”

Oliveira — a lifelong Democrat who recently turned Republican — installed the fence two weeks ago.

“It’s a shame that I have to do this,” Oliveira told the network. “I believe in the president. Obviously, people didn’t like that.”

The New Bedford School Committee member said everyone is entitled to their own political beliefs and opinions.

Report: Burisma paid bribe while Hunter Biden was on board

$7 million reportedly went to prosecutors

State Department officials had evidence that the Ukrainian gas company Burisma bribed prosecutors investigating it for corruption while Hunter Biden served on its board, according to department memos reported by Just the News.

State Department officials believe Burisma paid a $7 million bribe between May and December 2014, which they considered a "gross miscarriage of justice" that hurt the U.S. efforts to fight corruption, the memos show.

Just the News found the memos buried in five-year-old diplomatic files that provide a look at the "awkward, uncomfortable conflict of interest State officials perceived as they tried to fight pervasive corruption in Ukraine under Joe Biden's leadership while the vice president's son collected large payments as a board member for an energy firm widely viewed as corrupt."

Just the News reported in 2016 Burisma relentlessly pressured the Obama administration to drop corruption investigations.


Candace Owens Slams LeBron James' 'Racism' Whimpering - 'Minorities Are Waking Up in This Country'

When it comes to taking on liberal hypocrisy, Candace Owens is on a roll.
This past Sunday Owens targeted LeBron James in a Fox interview with Mark Levin.

“I’m always speaking out against these people, especially LeBron James,” Owens told Levin.

“I mean, this is a man that lives in a one hundred million dollar mansion in Bel Aire, and I always say, ‘If you’re suffering through racism, please give me some of that.

“He’s got a white gardener, a white chef, various white people that work for him. A white driver.

“So if that’s racism, LeBron, please share some of that with the rest of us.”

As the NBA’s biggest star at the moment, who is almost as well known for his race-based politics as for his basketball, there’s no question James is a legitimate target for Owens (though to be fair, his Los Angeles mansion is worth only $39 million, not $100 million, according to MSN).

A Man's Gotta Know His Own Limitations

As I’ve been observing the actions and justifications of men like Jerome Powell, Anthony Fauci, Andrew Cuomo, Joe Biden and Donald Trump during this self-inflicted global depression, I can’t help but channel the iconic American actor Clint Eastwood and his most famous role – Dirty Harry, when assessing whether they have an understanding of their limitations. If a man doesn’t know his limitations, he can ruin his own life.

When men in positions of immense power don’t know their limitations, they can ruin the world, destroying the lives of millions and propelling the world towards a catastrophic financial collapse and likely global conflict. Our benevolent leaders act as if they know what is best for mankind, when they are actually flailing about blindly, corrupted by their own power and wealth, leading us on a path to destruction, because their immense egos won’t allow them to humbly admit their dreadful mistakes and take corrective actions.

The second Dirty Harry movie, Magnum Force, came out in 1974, with Harry taking on vigilante cops in San Francisco. His lieutenant, played by Hal Holbrook, tries to keep Harry off the case of bad guys being executed by the lieutenant’s squad of dirty cops, using the logic that Harry posed a risk to society by not following proper police and justice procedures.

It’s funny how people in positions of power accuse others of doing what they in fact are doing themselves. In a condescending tone, the lieutenant boasts that he has never had to take his gun out of his holster as he has risen to a rank above Harry’s. The sarcastic response from Harry shows his contempt for those not willing to do the dirty work, keeping the streets safe from criminals:

“You’re a good man lieutenant. A good man always knows his limitations.”

At the end of the movie, after Harry has killed all the vigilante cops, the lieutenant pulls a gun on Harry and smugly tells him he will frame him for the murder of the cops. He then gets into the car Harry had been driving, not knowing Harry had activated a mailbox bomb and tossed it into the back seat. As he slowly drives away, the bomb goes off, killing the lieutenant. Another Dirty Harry happy ending. The movie ends with Harry saying:

“A man’s gotta know his limitations.”


Clinton Humiliated When Claim Trump Should 'Care Whether His Fellow Americans Live or Die' Backfires

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the woman who once asked a congressional committee if it mattered why four Americans died at the hands of an Islamic mob during the 2012 attack on U.S. diplomats in Libya, decided to take to Twitter on Monday morning with a weighty take on the November presidential race.

But if she was trying to pick a ground to attack President Donald Trump, she could hardly have chosen worse.

“We deserve a president who cares whether his fellow Americans live or die,” Clinton wrote in a tweet that lacked a link to explain the context — giving the impression that it just popped into her head on the back porch (maybe just after she’d popped the cork off another bottle of the vino she’s been known to imbibe).

Even giving the failed Democratic presidential candidate the benefit of the doubt and presuming she might have been taking a cheap shot at President Donald Trump and the nation’s death toll from the Wuhan virus pandemic, the jaw-dropping arrogance is astounding.

This is a woman who served as the Obama administration’s chief diplomat for four years — and displayed not only a complete disregard for her country’s laws (in the email scandal that probably killed her chances of the presidency) but also, in the case of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the American diplomatic post in Benghazi, a shocking lack of feeling over the death of an ambassador, a State Department staffer and two CIA operatives who were also former Navy SEALs.

Those four deaths were far from the only American casualties resulting from the Obama administration’s criminal incompetence — Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, killed by a weapon lost in operation “Fast and Furious,” and Islamic State group kidnap victim Kayla Mueller leap to mind.


We deserve a president who cares whether his fellow Americans live or die.
Like Benghazi? Fast and furious?

CDC Ignores Presidential Order and Moves Forward with Critical Race Theory Program — Pushing Marxist Garbage that Accuses Police of Racism

The same federal group that failed the nation and the world with their convoluted, unscientific and destructive COVID-19 policies is moving ahead with their critical race theory program.

This is despite President Donald Trump’s ban just ten days ago!

The CDC training claims that “racism is a public health crisis” and that “systemic racism” leads to “police killings of unarmed Black and Brown men and women”

Investigative reporter Chris Rufo broke this news on Monday.


NFL player honors fallen police officer on his helmet during season opener

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Tyler Eifert honored fallen St. Louis Police Department Officer David Dorn with a decal on the back of his helmet during the first game of the NFL season against the Indianapolis Colts.

Eifert tweeted a picture of helmet following the game, a 27-20 victory over the Colts.

“Great win to start the season,” Eifert tweeted. “Love being a part of this new team and community! It was honor wearing David Dorn's name on my helmet today!”

The "David Dorn" label was placed underneath his No. 88 on the back of his helmet. Eifert had an American flag placed on the left side and the NFL shield on the right.
