Assuming the Congress felt itself limited in any way by the Constitution then the article makes sense. For a Congress, like the current one, where that does not apply, then the analysis does not work in the current reality. The One Party is 10 days from the start of rule where any opposition will be a high crime. And they double dog dare you to tell them no.

Resistance is not futile, it is the only option.

Step one: Grow bugs for feed for animals. Step two: Recognize humans are a type of animal. Step three: Make humans hungry enough to eat anything. Step four: Price bug food so it is all hungry humans can afford.

How long will it take to go from one to four? How long will it take to fully domesticate all the remaining non-elite class of human? Unless the one party is brought to justice in the next 10 days it should be able to happen quickly, very quickly.

Resistance is not futile, it is the only option.

ZeroHedge - On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero

I always thought it curious that banks think their expertise extends to medicine, foreign policy, or any number of things outside of banking. If they put more effort into the primary business, banking, they just might end up not paying so many fines for criminal acts by their people.

Take this article for a case in point. The very first sentence is wrong. It wasn't Trump supporters storming the interior of the capital building. It was the Antifa branch of the Democrats camouflaged as Trump supporters. So just like in computer coding, anything past the error will be garbage. The entire article can safely be ignored with the error in the first sentence.

Weekend Tyler, also known as the B team, is getting an early start to malfunction.

Both New York and now California are trotting out laws best described as unamerican. One for putting people in camps if they might have been exposed to a virus and one for taxing anything anywhere anytime. Reminds me of the laws revised or ignored concerning election rules. With the courts failing to see any issue in the clear usurpation of powers by the executive branches, and with their fondness for precedent (which the 2020 election provides), the new way of doing things will likely stand.

At least until the people mandate a fix or civilization collapses since it no longer works.

There are at least 3 things to consider in this article. What the President said, what the news media reported he said, and what he said means. Since the President's Twitter account remains locked the news media filter is firmly in place. So the public can't be sure what was actually said, only what the filtered news says he said. As to what it means we will find out between now and Jan 20. Certifying the steal, rammed through the chambers last night, only puts a gloss of legality on it. Actual legality is still lacking since fraud/theft is not and never will be legal.

The Fat Lady is still singing and since it is an original song we still don't know all the lyrics.

Sure appears that those waiting for Congress to do the right thing can keep waiting. First act and right out of the gate the go to option was to legitimize the steal. I don't recall any candidate running on a platform promising in the choice between right and wrong to always go for wrong but that seems to be the default position.

Congress may want to consider this quote from a Democrat before Democrat became a bad word: Those that make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable.

The factor, swapping seasonal flu for Covid, is one of the biggest questions regarding the ongoing lockdowns and the US Federal government response. The other factor is the Presidential push and funding for a number of experimental vaccines while downplaying effective, low cost treatments. Was the President so poorly advised that he made the wrong decision on how to combat this or is there another agenda at work? This may, or may not, be made clear as the battle for a second term plays out. That battle and the Covid battle can then be viewed from the standpoint of the war against liberty being won or lost.

Terms, terms, terms. In economic analysis land the meaning of terms for items have shifted from the original intent. To wit, inflation and deflation were originally used to describe an increase or decrease in the money supply. Then the Fed got involved with the US government collusion to describe inflation/deflation as the increase or decrease in prices for a basket of goods (which leaves out important items from the basket and hedonically adjusts {Fed choice on adjustment factors} the items in the basket for a particular time frame).

The inflation definition was then changed to mean price increases. But only for the items in the basket, which also changed year by year. Using a variable yardstick of prices of goods in a changing basket composition is like using a rubber ruler. It can stretch to mean whatever you want it to mean. Add in the fraud of a managed economy where prices for many goods are controlled by the use of derivatives, run this scheme for a number of years and whatever the new signal of inflation is will be quite different from the actual reality achieved.

At some point, and we are close here, the reality disconnect will break and the system falls apart. This happens when policy destroys the moneyness of money. Now instead of running commerce by exchanging fiat for goods, the exchange is conditional on value for value (also known as barter). This happens when the confidence in fiat being a valid means of exchange is destroyed, say by printing trillions of new fiat per year with no end in sight or plan to stop said printing (worse, the plan is to continually increase the printing).

So a word of caution on using inflation and price rises in a flexible basket of goods as being interchangeable. Be especially cautious when the money supply is growing like now at stupendous rates. No fiat system (money by government decree) has stood the test of time. Which is why a Continental dollar is not currency today nor is a Lincoln era greenback. Soon we will be saying the same thing about the Federal Reserve Note (check your wallet). None of these are what is called for in the US Constitution to be the money of the land. What is called for will have purchasing power when the Fed note dies. How much purchasing power is open to question. But some, and it could be a lot more than some, is better than none which is where the Fed note is going.

Heed or not, you have been warned.

Well it is always convenient when the chief suspect is the dead guy. No need to keep looking and the case is closed fast. Remember the Las Vegas shooter? All the evidence of something else going on just didn't matter since the case got closed when the suspect died.

Just like this one. It's called FIB for a reason.

Many state governors and city mayors are treating the police forces as their own private military. And the police instead of enforcing the laws, all the laws including the US and state constitutions, are going along and following orders. At that point they are no more than hired thugs in costume with any oath they took upon joining the force totally forgotten.

These are the police that should be defunded, disbanded and stripped of all authority.
