They Are Certainly Looking At Selling

A report from Bloomberg. “What’s flown largely under the radar amid the central bank’s efforts to bolster the economy, is the Fed’s role in pushing the $6.8 trillion mortgage-backed securities market to extremes. The Fed has bought more than $1 trillion of mortgage bonds since March, a record pace, and now holds $2 trillion of the securities on its balance sheet. That easily eclipses the previous high during the last economic recovery. It’s hard to see a way out of the mortgage market for the Fed without causing at least a hiccup in the U.S. housing market and an implosion at worst.”

“As the calendar turns to 2021, Fed officials will need to figure out how to engineer a soft landing for the housing market. The refinancing boom the central bank engineered has helped countless Americans get through the pandemic. But it can’t afford to see it go bust. Most likely, the Fed won’t be able to extricate itself from buying mortgage bonds for at least the next several years, and possibly longer, or else risk toppling the entire house of cards it built.”

From Bay News 9 on Florida. “More than 51% of Florida adults say they live in households that aren’t current on rent or mortgage payments — higher than any other state, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Those respondents of the Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey also said they think eviction or foreclosure is at least somewhat likely in the next two months.”

From The Lens in Washington. “Robert Akhtar is a landlord of an apartment complex in SeaTac. Of the 13 units in the complex currently rented, he now has six tenants who are tens of thousands of dollars behind in their rent. Due to nonpayment, he has not paid his mortgage for the past three months, nor the electricity bill since April. Although he purchased the rental complex as a planned retirement investment, he now fears he may have to sell – or face foreclosure – if the moratorium is extended into 2021. ‘I don’t know what to do,’ he said. ‘It is very scary.'”

“‘We’re seeing that (anxiety) now amongst our membership all the time,’ said Kyle Woodring , a lobbyist for the Rental Housing Association of Washington, which represents 5,000 landlords in the state.. ‘They are certainly looking at selling. I am getting that question daily.'”

The Union Tribune in California. “San Diego County home prices in October did not increase from the previous month for the first time since May. Real estate agent Gary Kent said increased supply could mean there is less upward pressure on prices, but he — similar to many housing experts — was hesitant to say that prices could actually decrease. But, it might make the process of buying a little easier. ‘I don’t at all see some massive price drop,’ he said, ‘but people might say, ‘I don’t have to make an offer the first day over list price and maybe I could negotiate a bit.’”

“The resale single-family home median hit $730,000 in October, its highest ever. The resale condo price fell $10,000 from its peak in September to $475,000. The newly built home median was $726,000, down from the record $812,500 in October 2018 when there was an increase in luxury, single-family homes for sale.”

From CBS 8 on California. “The California exodus led among other states. As a person who specializes in finding people a new place to live, Sacramento realtor Kellie Swayne is not surprised. ‘Affordability has just plummeted over the years (in California),’ Swayne said. After spending his life in California and Stanislaus County, Jim DeMartini plans on being part of that migration trend for 2020. DeMartini has spent 16 years as a county supervisor, and even though it hurts to leave everything he knows and all his friends, he said he’s had enough of California.”

“‘California is not a good place to live or do business with anymore,’ DeMartini said. ‘I’ve been involved in local government here for 16 years, and I see California as just a basketcase.'”

From Fox Business. “Tech titan Keith Rabois announced this week that he is leaving California’s Silicon Valley and moving to the Floridian metropolis of Miami. ‘I think San Francisco is just so massively improperly run and managed that it’s impossible to stay here,’ he told Fortune’s Robert Hackett. ‘Bay Area searches for rent are in free-fall, they’re down like 30%,’ Rabois added.”

From Multi-Housing News. “The coronavirus crisis has fueled a significant exodus from densely populated gateway cities, dealing a sharp blow to the apartment industry in those markets, according to a presentation of the National Multifamily Housing Council’s 2020 OPTECH Virtual Conference. U.S. Postal Service change-of-address records filed from February through July indicate that Manhattan lost 110,978 net residents, while Brooklyn saw a net decrease of more than 43,000. San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago lost anywhere from roughly 26,000 to 31,000 residents each, the data compiled by Yardi Matrix and MYMOVE shows.”

“Jeff Adler, vice president of Yardi Matrix, noted that multifamily operating results have ‘tanked’ in the urban cores of major cities such as Manhattan, Boston, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami and Seattle, with absorption weak in the first half of 2020 and occupancy falling by 5 percent to 8 percent or more in those markets. The same period also saw declines in rents on new leases, renewal rents and retention rates, particularly in the upper end of the market.”

From Bisnow Dallas-Fort Worth in Texas. “Multifamily has held fairly steady since the coronavirus pandemic began, with occupancy hovering around 91.2% and average rents staying relatively flat at $1,158 per unit, according to ApartmentData. However, concessions are rising, especially for Class-A product, where 60% of properties are now offering deals like move-in specials or months of free rent.”

The Washington Post. “‘In November 2018, there was a big spike in prices and lots of speculation about what Amazon would mean to Arlington, Crystal City and Potomac Yards,’ said Dawn Wilson, a real estate agent with TTR Sotheby’s International Realty in Arlington. ‘Investors wanted to buy everything, especially condos. But that died down a lot in 2019. We saw a small spike in closings in those neighborhoods again in February and March of 2020, but once the pandemic hit there was a big dip all over the DMV for a few months.'”

“In September, there were 44 active listings on the market in the 22202 Zip code, according to Bright MLS, an increase of 238 percent compared with the number of active listings available in September 2019. Nearly 1,000 new apartments opened and began leasing in the National Landing area between October 2019 and October this year, according to Chris LeBarton, a senior market analyst with CoStar.”

“‘Approximately 5,000 more apartments are in the pipeline for the National Landing area, including some that are under construction, some planned and undergoing the paperwork phase, and some that are proposed but not yet approved,’ said Doug Ressler, director of business intelligence for Yardi Matrix.”

“‘If Amazon’s employees can work remotely, then they don’t need to live close to the headquarters,’ said David Hawkins, executive vice president of McEnearney Associates in Alexandria. ‘There’s a slight risk that there could be an oversupply of apartments in the future.'”

From Arlington Now. “Arlington County and the broader Washington, D.C. area has been historically anchored by comparatively low unemployment rates, high salaries and world-class assets, spanning an award-winning school system and cultural attractions. Needless to say, a bit has been thrown out of whack thanks to the lingering COVID-19 pandemic.”

“As of November 17, there are 720 total residential real estate offerings on the market in Arlington County. This marks an uptick in inventory from last month, when there were 695 listings. Compared to last year — and this is true in select markets across the U.S. — inventory has increased. So, what does this mean for you? In the real estate realm, everyone’s scenario is different. If you are looking to buy, you have more options. If you are selling, our market is notably more competitive than last year.”

The Chicago Tribune in Illinois. “Billionaire Joe Mansueto has bought the Waldorf Astoria Chicago, scooping up the luxury hotel at a COVID-19 discount price of $54.5 million. That is a steep discount to previous sale prices for the Gold Coast hotel, which is in a 60-story tower that also includes condominiums. Condo owners are not affected by the hotel sale.”

“In 2015, the hotel sold for $111.9 million, when the buyers were longtime hotelier Laurence Geller and Wanxiang America Real Estate Group. The Geller venture defaulted on its loans and last year the property was taken back by lenders Wells Fargo Bank and a debt fund of Chicago developer Walton Street Capital. They were owed more than $90 million when they took the property back.”

“Since then, hotel values have plunged further as the travel industry has been devastated by the coronavirus pandemic. The owner of the historic Palmer House Hilton, New York-based Thor Equities, in August was hit with a $338 million foreclosure suit.”

From The Real Deal. “Short-term rental operator Domio is reportedly going out of business. The startup, which was founded in 2016, will shut down and sell its assets through an assignment for the benefit of creditors, with Sherwood Partners overseeing the sale, The Information reported. The company laid off the majority of its staff earlier this month after failing to raise $10 million in additional capital, according to the outlet.”

“The company’s co-founders, CEO Jay Roberts and Chief Strategy Officer Adrian Lam, resigned from their posts and stepped down from the board of directors in late September. The company’s decision to shed its assets comes shortly after the Related Group and its partner, Black Capital Group, put out feelers to sell the 175-unit Domio Wynwood in Miami, where the short-term rental operator has a 10-year master lease agreement. The owners are looking to sell the asset at a whisper price of $90 million.”

From Summit Daily in Colorado. “Officials are looking for ways to increase full-time residency in Frisco. The town is hoping to increase the proportion of full-time residents to at least 50% over the coming years, a move outlined as a priority in the town’s most recent strategic plan update to help increase financial stability and inclusivity. Frisco currently has a full-time residency of about 42%, according to Community Development Director Don Reimer. But the numbers are based primarily on data extrapolated from the 2010 census, and Reimer said officials wouldn’t have a better idea of the current residency situation until the 2020 census numbers are released next year.”

“‘It probably does not accurately reflect some of the things we’ve seen anecdotally with Airbnb and changes to our short-term rentals and long-term rentals and that sort of occupancy,’ Reimer said. ‘… We don’t really have a good feel of what our starting point is. … That said, we do know we’re not at 50% residential occupancy.'”

“The problem is occupancy, not a lack of housing. Frisco has 3,607 housing units, and a population of only about 3,135, according to Reimer’s report. About 2,079 of those units are vacant most of the year. There are 577 short-term rentals currently licensed with the town. In the Tenmile basin — which includes Frisco and unincorporated areas like Copper Mountain and Bill’s Ranch — there are a total of 4,666 units, 3,271 of which are frequently vacant, or more than 70%.”

“‘When you have 65% of your community that sits idle, or that has this massive turnover because of tourism and short-term rentals, you’re not being efficient with your property,’ council member Jessie Burley said. ‘… In difficult times like we’re seeing this year, when the four or five houses next to you are empty, that’s not providing resiliency. It takes a village, and if there’s not people in the village, what are we doing?'”

      ‘In an interview with the Fox Business Channel, Giuliani, in his capacity as lawyer of reelectionist US President Donald Trump, claimed that the Smartmatic vote-counting machines were “hackable.”

      ‘He said Dominion, the company that provided the automated vote-counting system used during the most recent presidential election, was owned by Smartmatic through an intermediary company referred to as Indra.’

      ‘He claimed that the Smartmatic vote-counting machine was basically developed and designed to commit fraud in the process of vote-counting, particularly for the Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez.’

      ‘He claimed that Smartmatic had been behind the electoral frauds in many countries, without actually mentioning the Philippines, which has been using its system for over a decade.’

      ‘Giuliani also hinted about the origins of the Dominion- Voting System and the company’s alleged connection with Smartmatic, one of the most questioned automated voting companies, primarily because of the affiliation of the people behind the company to Chávez.’

      ‘He accused Smartmatic of manipulating the recent US presidential election in key US states, adding that its Dominion Voting System was using machines designed to allow human intervention.’

      ‘He said Smartmatic was founded by three Venezuelans who were very close to the dictator Hugo Chávez back in 2003, adding that the company was formed to fix elections. “That’s the company that owns Dominion. Dominion is a Canadian company, but all its software is from Smartmatic,” Giuliani was quoted during the interview.’

General Thomas McInerney to detail the shocking allegations surrounding Hammer and Scorecard, weaponized digital tools that allegedly allow our intelligence agencies to alter election results, including those in the United States.

      ‘In what might be one of the most important interviews ever conducted on the show, Gen. McInerney lays out an election fraud scheme in extensive detail on a scale never before experienced in America or the world.’

      1. ‘Witnesses of the recount of the presidential election in Georgia have signed sworn statements testifying to having observed ballots cast for President Donald Trump being counted as though they were cast for former Vice President Joe Biden.’

        ‘Trump campaign attorney Lin Wood filed the affidavits with a federal court in Georgia on Nov. 17 as part of an emergency motion seeking to block the certification of the election results in the Peach State.’

        ‘Nine of the affiants swore to have seen suspiciously pristine, uncreased mail ballots, uniformly and perfectly filled out, almost always for Biden. In one case, a batch of such ballots included 500 ballots in a row all cast for Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee.’

        ‘The lack of creases is strange considering that mail ballots have to be folded to fit in an envelope. Some of the witnesses said the perfect markings, all in black and never outside the voting bubble, appeared as though they were printed by a machine or stamped.’

        ‘The emergency motion detailed these and other abnormalities, violations, and potential signs of voter fraud on the night prior to the deadline for Georgia’s recount, which has already discovered, in three counties, batches of uncounted votes for Trump.’

        “Everything was in total disarray,” Susan Voyles, a poll manager with 20 years of experience handling ballots, wrote in her affidavit about her experience at a recount center in Fulton County. “It was pristine. There was a difference in the texture of the paper—it was if they were intended for absentee use, but had not been used for that purpose,” Voyles testified. “There were no markings on the ballots to show where they had come from, or where they had been processed.”

        ‘Debra Fisher witnessed the same pattern with military and overseas ballots. She noticed that the watermark on the ballots was printed in solid grey instead of being transparent like other ballots. Fisher suspected the ballots were counterfeit and inquired with the elections director, who told her it was not an issue “due to the use of different printers.”

        “I noticed that almost all of the ballots I reviewed were for Biden. Many batches went 100 percent for Biden,” Fisher testified. “I believe the military ballots are highly suspicious of fraud.”

        “I observed that the markings for the candidates on these ballots were unusually uniform, perhaps even with a ballot marking device,” Voyles said. “By my estimate in observing these ballots, approximately 98 percent constituted votes for Joe Biden.”

        ‘Carlos Silva, a registered Democrat, observed a batch of ballots similar to the one described by Voyles, this time in DeKalb County. “I noticed they all had a perfect black bubble and all were Biden select,” Silva wrote in a sworn affidavit. “I heard them go through the stack and call out Biden’s name over 500 times in a row.”

        ‘Robin Hall witnessed the same odd ballots in Fulton County. “The ballots appeared to be perfectly filled out as though they were pre-printed with the presidential candidate selected. They did not look like a person filled this out at home,” Hall wrote.’

        ‘Three of the affiants testified that they witnessed ballots cast for Trump being placed in stacks for Biden and counted toward the tally for the former vice president. One of the three said she recorded the activity on video.’

        ‘Nicholas Zeher said he saw ballots cast for Trump being placed in a pile for Biden when he observed the recount in Henry County. Other observers told Zeher they noticed the same activity at three other auditor tables. When he brought the issue to the attention of the election official on site, “it was met with extreme hostility.”

        “At no time did I witness any ballot cast for Joseph Biden be placed in the pile for Donald Trump,” Zeher testified.’

        “Based on my observations, I believe that additional absentee ballots were cast for Donald Trump but counted for Joe Biden. I further believe that there was widespread fraud favoring Joe Biden.”

        ‘Consetta Johnson saw Trump ballots being placed into the Biden tray when she monitored the recount in Cobb County. “I also witnessed the same two poll workers putting the already separated paper receipt ballots in the ‘No Vote’ and ‘Jorgensen’ tray, and removing them and putting them inside the Biden tray,” Johnson testified.’

        “They then took out all of the ballots out of the Biden tray and stacked them on the table, writing on the count ballot sheet,” she said, adding that she recorded a video of the incident. “I believe the Board of Elections operations were sloppy, unorganized, and suspicious.”

        ‘Silva, who had also witnessed the unusually pristine ballots, saw absentee ballots for Trump “inserted into Biden’s stack” and “counted as Biden votes … a few times.”

        ‘On Nov. 18, after Lin filed the emergency motion, the Trump campaign paid the state of Wisconsin $3 million to conduct a recount in two counties. Legal challenges are also pending in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Arizona, and Nevada. The challenges in the six states will decide the outcome of the 2020 presidential race.’

        1. Do you understand that there are tens of millions of people in this country who stopped listening to any of this over a week ago, after the November 7th media coronation?

          Stopped listening, as in a blanket refusal to acknowledge that any of this is a problem.

          People on Reddit, people who get their “news” from John Oliver or from Facebook’s censored algorithms.

          #OrangeManBad is all they can allow themselves to ever know…

          1. Do you know more people listen to infowars than CNN? The voting is over. Now we fight:

            The President won in a landslide. The globalist media is trying to larp this senile pedo into the White House and it’s not going to stand.

          2. ‘A Philadelphia lawyer who had represented the Trump campaign was placed under official protection after receiving “threats of harm,” according to court papers that were filed Wednesday night.’

            ‘The attorney, Linda Kerns, was “the subject of threats of harm, to the point at which the involvement of police and US Marshals has been necessary to provide for her safety,” the filing stated (pdf.)’

            ‘Judge Matthew Brann also allowed Kerns to be “withdrawn as counsel” for the Trump campaign, according to a court filing.’

            ‘Earlier this week, Kerns sought sanctions against a lawyer working for a law firm representing Democratic Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar after she received harassment and a threatening phone call over the weekend in connection to her representation of President Donald Trump’s campaign.’

            ‘Kerns wrote on Monday that she had “been subjected to continuous harassment in the form of abusive emails, phone calls, physical and economic threats, and even accusations of treason—all for representing the President of the United States’ campaign in this litigation.” Campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh also confirmed the development.’

            ‘It came as anti-Trump group the Lincoln Project, which has hundreds of thousands of followers, suggested that people should attempt to put pressure on Trump’s legal team. The Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur law firm also withdrew from the case in Pennsylvania. Kerns had taken over after Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur withdrew, said the papers.’

            ‘What’s more, two Republican members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers in Michigan said they were threatened and harassed earlier this week after they said they wouldn’t vote to certify the election. They later signed affidavits to rescind their certification votes.’

            ‘The two both argued that “intense bullying and coercion” forced them to vote to certify the results. They also said that officials promised that a full audit of the election would take place to address their concerns, but the pair later learned that no audit would take place.’

            ‘Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley on Thursday, in his blog, wrote that the threats against lawyers and Republicans have not been denounced by top Democrats or legacy news outlets.’

            “What is missing however are calls in the media or from Democratic leaders to end such campaign of intimidation and abuse by groups like the Lincoln Project,” Turley said. “While President-elect Joe Biden has called for unity and healing, he has said nothing about the campaign against Trump campaign lawyers and their clients. He has said nothing about reports of violent threats against officials or lawyers tied to election challenges.”

        2. People on Reddit, people who get their “news” from John Oliver or from Facebook’s censored algorithms.

          Uggh. The ex-gf used to watch John Oliver and all those leftist liars.

  2. ‘The resale single-family home median hit $730,000 in October…The newly built home median was $726,000’

    When new is lower than existing, yer fooked.

    1. “When new is lower than existing, yer fooked.”

      +1 I remember when new homes in our area started selling for less than the balance due on aged HELOC properties. The keys were returned, and the properties sat empty for a decade!

  3. ‘multifamily operating results have ‘tanked’ in the urban cores of major cities’

    How do those 5% cap rates look now?

  4. ‘The company’s decision to shed its assets comes shortly after the Related Group and its partner, Black Capital Group, put out feelers to sell the 175-unit Domio Wynwood in Miami, where the short-term rental operator has a 10-year master lease agreement. The owners are looking to sell the asset at a whisper price of $90 million’

    So I’m gonna lease a hotel for 10 years, rent it out short term, and make money. What could possibly go wrong? Everything apparently.

  5. ‘In difficult times like we’re seeing this year, when the four or five houses next to you are empty, that’s not providing resiliency. It takes a village, and if there’s not people in the village, what are we doing?’

    Housing bubbles are like a cat climbing a tree. It gets up there and there’s only one way down. That’s some shortage Jessie. The short term rental fiasco was a bed you made.

  6. “What’s flown largely under the radar amid the central bank’s efforts to bolster the economy, is the Fed’s role in pushing the $6.8 trillion mortgage-backed securities market to extremes.

    I hope I live to see the day when these Keynesian fraudsters are standing in shackles and orange jumpsuits before an honest judge in a post-collapse tribunal, awaiting sentencing for their roles in debasing the currency, rigging and distorting the markets, and fraud against the 99 percent.

    1. “live to see the day”

      None of us ever will within our lifetimes.

      Our blog host can tell us how Ron Paul was treated in the Arizona primaries a few years ago. Globalist parasites aren’t gonna let a bunch of pesky voters take away the gravy trough.

      Pigmen gonna pig, FOREVER.

      1. They own and control the entire system.

        Actually we own the system. They have enjoyed control under cover of darkness. Some light is getting shown on them now and tens of millions will not unsee it.

        There is going to be a row. Gird yourself. We can talk later over who/if gets the guillotine.

  7. It’s hard to see a way out of the mortgage market for the Fed without causing at least a hiccup in the U.S. housing market and an implosion at worst.”

    Ya think? These fraudsters have painted themselves into a corner while doubling down on their Keynesian monetary lunacy. This ends one way: with the implosion of the Fed’s Everything Bubble and the cataclysmic destruction of trillions of fake “wealth” created by fake money.

    ‘As of November 17, there are 720 total residential real estate offerings on the market in Arlington County’

    Where did these come from? Were they just built? No, but there’s a bunch on the way. So these airboxes and shacks have been there all along. Ya’ll don’t all head for the exits at once now!

  9. ‘I’ve been involved in local government here for 16 years, and I see California as just a basketcase’

    Join the club Jim.

    ‘Anger over the perceived hypocrisy of California lawmakers continued to boil over Wednesday, as newly published pictures raised doubts about Gov. Gavin Newsom’s claim that his French Laundry dinner was held outdoors and the names of more lawmakers attending a Maui junket surfaced.’

    ‘To add insult to injury, two top officials from the California Medical Assn. — a leading organization representing doctors in the state — were among those in attendance at the dinner, which was held to celebrate lobbyist Jason Kinney’s 50th birthday. Newsom apologized for attending the dinner on Monday, saying he should have practiced what he preached and again asking Californians to “minimize mixing” with other families.’

    1. ‘Los Angeles County has imposed new restrictions on businesses and is readying plans for a mandatory curfew for all but essential workers if coronavirus cases keep spiking.’

      ‘The county of 10 million residents has seen daily confirmed cases more than double in the last two weeks to nearly 2,900. On Tuesday, it ordered non-essential retail businesses to limit indoor capacity to 25% and restaurants to 50% capacity outdoors.’

      ‘All such businesses must close at 10 p.m. The changes take effect Friday. If daily cases rise to 4,500 and hospitalizations top 2,000, the county will impose a three-week lockdown that will restrict people to their homes for all but essential services. A nighttime curfew would run from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.’

      ‘The county of 10 million residents has seen daily confirmed cases more than double in the last two weeks to nearly 2,900’

      So yer gonna put 10 million people in a curfew because of 2,900 sniffle cases?

    Rossi will cut his staff to about 12, focus on take-out, and not bother keeping the restaurant rooftop open for the handful of people brave enough to eat outside as the weather turns cold.

    “Now we are playing the game of how do we lose the least amount of money?” Rossi said. “Making money is not even in the vocabulary anymore.”

    Now that there won’t be any $1200 checks, or an extra $600 a week in unemployment, and no more “payroll loans that don’t have to be repaid” we’ll see how the penniless masses react to having to stand in mile long food bank lines in freezing weather just before Christmas.

    1. I look around at business traffic. It’s up a bit but I suspect lots are on the edge. Just remember, there are people out there who want to destroy this country. They hate businesses, want to control yer every move. That’s how serious this is. I got this in an email:

      ‘NYC Commercial Real Estate is facing dire struggles in reopening businesses, collecting rent, and staying afloat. Evi Angelakis, CEO and Founder of Golden Key Realty and a commercial landlord herself knows this struggle all too well, and she realizes the blame falls on New York’s government and Marxist policies.’

      ‘Check out this article recently published on how New Yorkers are leaving the city in droves amid coronavirus and crime concerns. As an immigrant who fled communism and violence in Albania to live a better life in New York, she is stunned at the current COVID policies in her city today and how they are impacting business around her.’

      “We’re being negatively impacted here in NYC due to the disastrous policies of De Blasio and ultimately also Gov. Cuomo. Restrictions due to COVID-19 as well as a drop in foot traffic due to un-policed violence in our neighborhoods is causing extreme economic damage to our small businesses and retail buildings.”

      “Businesses all over are being shut down for the wrong reasons, and we’re seeing more surveillance and policing of small business owners than we are of the protests in the streets. They’re shutting down businesses while letting crime run rampant in New York City.”

      “Ultimately, we have seen some stimulation from the PPP loans given out by the government. However, if it weren’t for the uptick in crime, our businesses would likely be back on their feet, but small businesses in Manhattan can’t seem to catch a break.”

      These people are Marxists. We have to fight back.

      1. “We have to fight back.”

        Ron DeSantis is in Florida. The rest of the country, not so much. We are witnessing the Cloward-Piven strategy being implemented in real time, albeit on an accelerated scale.

      2. These people are Marxists. We have to fight back.

        A recent recall petition against Gov. Polis failed to gather enough signatures to qualify. Of course no one is freezing or starving … yet.

        1. Several of the Bolsheviks who pushed through Colorado’s “high capacity” magazine ban got bounced following a grassroots recall drive. Hickenlooper, among others, seems to have learned that there may be a political price to pay if you start trying to implement globalist dictates to disarm potential resisters.

        2. “no one is freezing”

          Tell that to the people sleeping in the bushes outside the Wells Fargo building down here.

          I’m not talking about tent cities on the Platte River bike path, I’m talking sleeping rough, as the Brits would say. In the bushes, in the doorways of now closed businesses.

          I’ve never seen this before in South Denver in the decade I’ve lived here.

          1. And if there is a recall, they will count the votes how, again?

            We can’t vote our way out of this mess. That much is clear. Even if 2/3 vote to “through the bums out” the bums will be declared the winners. The Deep State has made it clear that they are in charge.

            Ben is right, we have to fight back against the Marxists. The question is, will enough people rise to the occasion, or will people slink back to their homes, figuring they have more to lose than gain? Of course, once the Marxists fully take over, they will lose everything: their houses, their cars and their corporate/.gov jobs.

          2. “Rise up” and “fight back” are pretty vague. Do you have anything specific in mind? Peaceful protests? Mass arrests? Boycotts? Second Amendment solutions? Three-percenter-style solution? French-style revolution? Gold? Bitcoin?

          3. Peaceful protests? Yes.

            Boycotts? I’m already there.

            Gold? Good luck finding where it’s buried.

            I’m too old for street fighting. Geographic self-segregation is the answer for some of us. Denver is a great place to make money, not spend money, and then take all my money and leave.

        3. A recent recall petition against Gov. Polis failed to gather enough signatures to qualify. Of course no one is freezing or starving … yet.

          Make no mistake about it, the free sh!t army is massive. And they are counting on free sh!t from Diaper Joe and The Ho.

      3. The only way to truly fight back is to exit the matrix. Cancel cable, cancel mainstream media, pay of as much debt as you can and cut up your credit cards. Quit drinking and drugs, hug your family. Try to find God if you can. This is a spiritual battle.

        1. “The time is now and near at hand which must probably determine whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves. . . . Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us the only choice of brave resistance, or the most abject submission. We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer or die.” – George Washington, 1776.

          1. When you have people openly talking about creating lists of people who deserve to be punished and talking about people who need to be deprogrammed, etc. and the media isn’t calling it out, then the time is actually here already. In fact, the media are supporting/doing it themselves. The war is of hearts and minds and it’s being won handily.

    2. Now that there won’t be any $1200 checks, or an extra $600 a week in unemployment, and no more “payroll loans that don’t have to be repaid” we’ll see how the penniless masses react to having to stand in mile long food bank lines in freezing weather just before Christmas.

      It crosses my mind that this is by design. As we roll into December and the unemployment numbers skyrocket again as the states lock down, many will despair. Biden will promise the mother of all bailouts and will demand that he be inaugurated ASAP, so that Santa can deliver free cheese to everyone.

      1. A big part of that is the canceling of student debt. Pedo Joe as Santa Claus will get up the hopes of the libs, but I guarantee they’ll get a few crumbs at most. The left will never let their slaves off the plantation, they need a wedge issue like that as a reason to vote for them. Same with the illegals – a few token gestures might be made, but they want to keep their slaves right where they are.

        1. A large scale cancelling of student debt would royally piss off everyone who has struggled to pay off their own student loans.

          If anything, I would think a change to allow Student Loan debt to be discharged in bankruptcy, like any other consumer debt, would be more politically tenable.

          1. Another option is to lower the interest rates to 1% or 0. They’ll pay it back, but at least the balance won’t increase. As for BK, it needs to be a real BK. None of this buy-a-house-in-again-in-three-years crap. Nope, I want them applying for secured credit cards like we did in the late 1980s. And BK discharge tuition only. Borrowed money for those luxe dorms can be paid back in full.

          2. And BK discharge tuition only

            Socialism lite. A big reward for the rich kids who go to Ivy League, a lesser reward for poor kids who go to community college and the working stiff gets to pay for all of it.

    3. Meanwhile, In&Out will open its first restaurants in Colorado tomorrow.
      3000 people posted they will be waiting in line for the opening on one of the Facebook posts. It sounds like a SuperSpreader event.

      Great for In&Out, horrible for small businesses.

      1. They are a privately held corporation which started small and continues to grow slowly. It’s a great story among all the publicly traded corporate scum.

  11. Because – we have to tax the snot out of those folks to pay for the insane public union pensions.

    Remember – the USSR built walls to keep people IN.

    “From Summit Daily in Colorado. “Officials are looking for ways to increase full-time residency in Frisco. The town is hoping to increase the proportion of full-time residents to at least 50% over the coming years, a move outlined as a priority in the town’s most recent strategic plan update to help increase financial stability and inclusivity.”

    1. I love the town of Frisco, and skiing up at family-friendly Copper Mountain, but am less enamored of the town’s left-leaning “leadership.” It’s a charming place, nonetheless.

      1. am less enamored of the town’s left-leaning “leadership.”

        When the tax receipts don’t materialize they’re gonna have to let some people go (the city has 80 year round time employees)

        1. I’ll remember to never pull into Frisco to fill up the tank or grab a bite to eat. I know that the sales tax I withhold from them is chump change, but I will do it gladly.

          1. +1,000

            Keep driving west on 70 and spend your money in Lauren Boebert’s district instead, create sales tax revenue and jobs for the locals there.

          2. Darn, I consider Frisco the goto place versus Breckenridge if I ever get back on the Colorado Trail ever again. Thank you Colorado for that trail! Beauty of fly into Denver and take the light rail to as close as I can get to Waterton canyon and take a Lyft after that and then just walk. My biggest fear is that all us AT hikers will figure out the sleeper trail that the CT is and love it to death as much as the AT is being loved to death.

    2. Because – we have to tax the snot out of those folks to pay for the insane public union pensions.

      Thank goodness for TABOR, though I fear its days are numbered.

      As for Frisco, it’s a one horse town of 2600 residents that is dependent on the ski resorts on the other side of the mountain. I’m guessing that the hotel bookings for the coming ski season are looking pretty slim and that they pay most of the town’s bills. I expect people to leave Frisco, not move there.

      1. I hope the Frisco Lodge (built in the 1880s) can keep its doors open. Have spent many enjoyable winter evenings there around the collective dining room table enjoying wine and meals with an assortment of quests from all over the country and world.

        1. an assortment of quests from all over the country and world My most enjoyable travel experiences have been meeting various “assortments”, in widely scattered venues.

    1. Great Tape Ben, also the one below it on the Great Reset.
      I predict that small business won’t get bail outs that will save them so these masterminds have a monopoly on all business.
      They don’t care what they destroy with these bogus lock downs.

      1. Already the narrative is being rolled out that the execs at fortune 500 companies will not sit idly by if Trump does not relinquish the presidency. How many of those execs flew on epsteins plane or are being blackmailed by China?

        State Department advising against travel is another warning sign.

        This is coming to a head quick and wont be bloodless.

        1. execs at fortune 500 companies will not sit idly

          What will they do? Attack the White House with their Gulfstreams?

          Just goes to show the Pedo Joe is their puppet.

    1. Top down control isn’t efficient either. When people are in charge of their own lives they get their needs met quickly and efficiently. Big Government can’t respond as quickly as a individual would. Ask anyone who has lived under Communism how screwed it is.
      Also, when I hear some of these Globalist wanting to control what we eat it’s scary. Take away meat because of the carbon and make people eat soy and bugs.
      So what are the birds going to eat if we are forced to eat bugs? I’m just saying how do they know that bug eating won’t create a lack of balance in nature,?
      These arethe elite that no doubt want to live in the lap of luxury while

      1. make people eat soy and bugs An odd bit of medical history, can’t recall where I read this a few decades ago: Physicians in the UK noticed severe Vitamin B12 deficiencies cropping up in vegetarian immigrants from colonies in south Asia. They were eating the same kinds of food they ate in their places of origin, where vegetarian diets almost never resulted in B12 deficiency. Researchers came to the conclusion that insects & other vermin in south Asia tended to infest grain products there, such as wheat and rice, rather heavily. Their dead bodies and excreta were comparatively rich in B12. UK sources of the same types of foods were kept in much more sanitary conditions, resulting in very little insect contamination and very little B12 accidentally becoming part of the vegetarian diets the immigrants were consuming.

        1. Tresho,
          I have read that soy is hard on the pancreas if it isn’t fermented.
          Just saying these goons are dangerous in what they might inflick on the human race. Choices of food is a great thing.

  12. “In 2019, 653,000 Californians left for greener pastures in places like Texas, Arizona, Oregon, Nevada, and Washington.”

    Oh dear. Wait until WFH is permanently permitted.

      1. I wasn’t following politics back then so excuse me for just putting some of these things together. In 2002, GWB signed the Help America Vote Act specifically addressing voting technology. In 2004, Karl Rove is “the architect” of GWB’s re-election campaign. Fraud was alleged in 2004 election.

  13. Today I received an email from my state medical board saying they will be offering 2 Zoom-type courses for physicians on filling out death certificates. This starts 5 December. This is only about 50 years overdue.

    1. The Youtube channel “Medcram” had a video about those COVID death certificates.

      Presumably, to calculate a case fatality rate, people simply counted the number of death certificates that listed COVID as the primary cause. That’s how they arrived at the 99.96% survival rate which is being repeated all over the media.

      The problem is, COVID is not a primary cause of death. The primary cause of death is organ failure, and COVID should be listed as the secondary condition which led to the organ failure. Therefore, all those “COVID” death certificates were errors. And the 99.96% survival rate is overestimated.

      1. COVID should be listed as the secondary condition

        Early on in this the CDC issued new guidelines for death certificates in the age of Covid. I read them at the time and got the impression that suddenly if Covid was on the list of factors, it went to the bottom line.

        I could be wrong about this, but I don’t think so.

      2. This is how the underlying cause of death is determined:
        https://icd.who.int/icd11refguide/en/index.html#2.19.02SelectingTheUnderlyingCause|selecting-the-underlying-cause-of-death|c2-19-2

        No use reinventing the wheel–I wrote about this issue the other day. As for mortality, there are two ways to measure this for infectious diseases. One is the Infection Fatality Ratio (IFR);
        IFR= number of deaths from disease / total number infected

        The other is the Case Fatality RATIO (CFR):
        CFR= number of deaths from disease / number of confirmed cases

        https://www.who.int/news-room/commentaries/detail/estimating-mortality-from-covid-19

        The IFR can’t be calculated if the TOTAL number of infected people in the population is unknown. There haven’t been very many studies done to estimate the number of infected people in populations. So the IFR is useless without a denominator.

        The CFR also has severe limitations since the true number of cases of Covid-19 is unknown since a large number of people who only have mild symptoms aren’t diagnosed since they don’t seek medical care. So any CFR that you see published underestimates the TRUE CFR.

        A well known and established pathologist calls Coronavirus “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated.”

        https://www.citizenfreepress.com/breaking/top-global-pathologist-coronavirus-is-the-greatest-hoax-ever-perpetrated/
        In true “1984” fashion, this doctor’s video is being censored by Big Tech.

        1. “So any CFR that you see published underestimates the TRUE CFR.” Should read:

          “…any CFR that you see published OVERESTIMATES the TRUE CFR.”

        If everybody had COVID

        We’ll all be sick by the summer

  14. So Soros had Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing banned from Fox News, both of whom appeared onstage at today’s press conference alongside Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, and Tucker Carlson expects Sidney Powell to provide him evidence and come on his show?!

          1. It appears PedoJoe pressured Fox to lay off PedoHunter.

            Fox caved to the Biden crime syndicate. Fawk off Tucker.

            73 million people won’t cave.

    1. Twitter thread from an attorney working with Sidney Powell.

      https://twitter.com/molmccann/status/1329618861600206849: I like
      @TuckerCarlson a lot, and he has one of the best shows on television. But he sounds like a spoiled brat here. I wonder if he recalls his tepid and skeptical attitude toward Lt. General Michael Flynn in the past four years? Because I do. Sidney Powell, came to D.C. and…

  16. “How Do You Deprogram 75 Million People?” – California Democrat Calls For “Post WWII” Reeducation For Trump Supporters

    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/11/deprogram-75-million-people-california-democrat-calls-post-wwii-reeducation-trump-supporters/

    California Democrat David Atkins this week called for Trump supporters to be “deprogrammed” in “post WWII” type reeducation camps.

    Atkins called the 75+ million people who voted for President Trump a “belligerent death cult against reality.”

    1. AOC and the squad are demanding Biden adapts their far left agenda. AOC said “,.Were Winning.”

      I have never seen a more treasonous group on anti American Commie evil dumb ass loud mouths as those ignorant power hungry liars.

      Dangerous people who under the Commie influence of Bernie Sanders think they are going to transform America into a Commie shit hold.
      Ever notice how the leaders of these groups are old corrupt people like Biden, Polosi, Schumer, Bernie Sanders, George Soros, Klaus Schwab. A evil that crystalizes with age that wants to corrupt the youth, that I have seen in these losers who are perverted.
