Mid-Year Housing Bubble Predictions

What is your mid-year housing bubble prediction? From six months ago: “I was sitting here contemplating what this new year is going to bring, and the biggest question that I have is where in the heck a frugal, cautious person like myself could ever get a return on cash. Treasuries look absolutely pitiful. I mean, what’s the point? Precious metals, so far as I can tell, aren’t really an ‘investment,’ they’re just an inflation guard. CDs at .5% APY? I was wondering where somebody would plot us in relation to the past, to guess what sort of inflation we have coming in the next couple years.”

A reply: “I wonder what kind of inflation cascading defaults might bring. You say yourself that there’s no good place to invest money, yet do you think there are any good places to lend money? We’ve had an historic credit expansion and the price of things doubled while we made too much of everything. What would we build next to double the amount of debt and crap to bring on a big inflation?”

Another said: “I’ll just make two vague predictions: 1. Pandemic will be totally over by the start of school in the fall. 2. The US might have a drawn-out Depression, but I believe the plan for globalists to take over the US — as in, you-will-own-nothing-and-be-happy, will ultimately fail. As the saying goes, a herd goes insane all at once but they come to their senses one by one. I think this is what we will see, even if it happens over a couple of years.”

From one year ago: “Real Journalists of the New York Times term the rejection of their #Narrative as a ‘a dark and divisive speech,’ from South Dakota last night: ‘Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values and indoctrinate our children … Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders, deface our most sacred memorials and unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities.'”

“I predict that the municipal tax coffers of cities unable and unwilling to maintain law and order will continue to evaporate.”

From Bisnow. “New York City slashed property values this year, drastically reducing tax obligations for many commercial landlords across the city. But even with assessments down by more than 20% in some cases, some owners say the reductions are not nearly enough relief, given the circumstances, and are squaring up to fight the city with greater force than ever before. ‘What most people feel is that, although there were decreases in the valuations, they really were not significant enough compared to the effect of Covid,’ said Robert Gilman, the co-leader of the real estate group at accounting firm Anchin Block & Anchin. Based on building sale prices decreasing alone, he is advocating for the valuation of buildings to fall closer to 30%.”

“‘The city hasn’t seen a year-over-year decline in property tax revenue since, I think, 1998. There is all of this smoothing and stability that’s built into the system [that] keeps the property tax steady, even during recessions,’ said Citizens Budget Commission Director of City Studies Ana Champeny. ‘So this is sort of an unprecedented situation here, where the finance estimates for market value showed such a dramatic decrease that we’re seeing both a year-over-year decrease in market and in tax revenue.'”

“Manhattan’s office availability rate was at 18.4% in the second quarter, according to Savills, a leap from 11.8% over the prior year. Few office workers have returned to their desks, and many companies are looking at hybrid models that could move them to reduce space. Direct ground-floor availabilities in retail spaces have hit new highs, and many of those with tenants in place may be waiting until the eviction moratorium is lifted to throw them out.”

“‘We’re saying, ‘You’re assuming you’re going to snap your fingers and it’s going to get back to the way it used to be,’ said Joel Marcus, an attorney at Marcus & Pollack specializing in tax certiorari. ‘But we don’t believe so. And our clients don’t believe so. Because why would they sign a lease with a new retail tenant for less than half the rent of the old tenant if they thought it was going to snap back? [Landlords] are not waiting because they don’t think it’s going to get better.'”

From WTOP. “The end of Virginia’s state of emergency could mean dire times for those who have been struggling to pay the bills. According to Laura Dobbs, a housing attorney, data from a Census Bureau survey showed that roughly 36% of Virginians feel they are at risk of foreclosure or eviction within the next two months. ‘Unless we get this rental assistance out there as quickly as possible, we’re going to have a massive number of evictions as well as foreclosures for those owners who have been unable to keep up with mortgage payments,’ she said.”

From KPIX 5 in California. “As the City of San Jose mulls over its plan to remove hundreds of people from a homeless encampment adjacent to Mineta San Jose International Airport, neighboring business owners and workers expressed their frustrations. ‘I am fed up. I am beyond fed up. I’m frustrated of being here and dealing with these issues on a daily basis,’ said Simon Aslanpour, owner of Blooming Bouquet.”

“Aslanpour, who has owned the business on Coleman Avenue for the past ten years, says 2020 was the worst he has seen. Federal health guidelines meant sweeps of homeless encampments were paused for much of pandemic. The encampment, encompassing 40 acres, grew to more than 200 people. Unofficial estimates peg the count closer to 400 to 500 people.”

“As a result, Aslanpour continuously clears out piles of trash dumped on his property, and dumpsters filled with hazardous materials has resulted in increased disposal fees. Employee vehicles are routinely burglarized. A wrought iron fence is repeatedly broken as trespassers enter the grounds to fill water tanks and charge cell phones, Aslanpour told KPIX 5. A security camera was destroyed in the latest incident. And the catalytic converters were stolen on both Aslanpour’s delivery truck, and the subsequent replacement rental truck.”

“At Club Rio, employee Peggie Gallardo recounted one break-in where the thieves ignored expensive audio equipment, but stole food and water, and then defecated in the kitchen and bathroom, and smeared feces on the walls and mirrors. Recently, an inhabitant from the encampment used a machete to chop landscaping and dig holes around the business. ‘This is ridiculous. This is just utterly ridiculous for somebody to do this and not understand how much it affects people’s lives,’ said Gallardo.”

The Denver Channel. “Two Arizona-based real estate companies are targeting Colorado to invest in build-to-rent home neighborhoods. Tony Hernandez, a MSU Denver professor and expert in housing, said it’s a great property investment for real estate investors, but there is more to consider as the renter. He said while some companies only offer permanent rentals, others may offer rent-to-own homes. He added that it’s always best to be cautious, read the fine print, weigh your options and talk with a housing nonprofit. He added that there are pros and cons to the build-to-rent movement.”

“‘For the next generation, that means I cannot buy a house and use the equity to send my kids to school,’ Hernandez said.”

The Globe and Mail in Canada. “Wisdom has it you should pay off your mortgage before you retire from work, and for most people that’s the prudent thing to do. Tom and Marie want to ‘spend’ their house instead. ‘We want to allow ourselves to splurge for the first 10 years while good health allows it, then slow down a little for the following years,’ Tom writes in an e-mail.”

“‘Common wisdom suggests it is not a good idea to use debt to finance retirement expenses,’ Tom writes, ‘but I am not sure I get the problem!’ Just retired, Marie and Tom, both age 60, have defined benefit pensions, investment assets of $1.4-million and a mortgage-free home in Quebec valued at $1.8-million. They want to travel extensively for the next 10 years or more but they don’t particularly want to sell their house. Their retirement spending goal is $200,000 a year for the first few years, falling to $150,000 thereafter.”

“Warren MacKenzie, head of financial planning at Optimize Wealth Management in Toronto,  says. ‘They’d have their house for another decade and any capital appreciation they might enjoy will be tax-free.’ If the house appreciates at the rate they hope it will, Tom and Marie would have had to make nearly 10 per cent in a private debt instrument to produce the same after-tax return, the planner says.”

“Marie and Tom’s basic plan ‘is to spend as if their wealth was in the bank when in fact it’s tied up in the equity of their home,’ the planner says. When they exhaust their cash and liquid investments, they will borrow on their line of credit secured by the house. If interest rates rise or house prices languish, they’ll switch gears and sell the property.”

    Ring ring!

    Club Rio, how can I help you?

    Hey Peggie, have you got an opening for lunch at 12:30ish? I’m thinking sushi.

  2. ‘Marie and Tom’s basic plan ‘is to spend as if their wealth was in the bank when in fact it’s tied up in the equity of their home’

    Fake money distorts many millions of decisions. Which distorts the same number over and over. I’ve always viewed the “I cashed out and bought a BIG ASS BOAT” stuff as pretty irrelevant.

    Wealth can’t be printed. Every phony peso will go away somehow. And the somehow will involve somebody’s pain. So as the US central bank alone created more money in the last year than existed in the 1990’s, think about how much poof is to come.

    1. If interest rates rise or house prices languish, they’ll switch gears and sell the property.

      There’s the “I can always sell.” Sure, maybe for a banana, if your imagined equity flashes off.

  3. I posted this in the past threads above:

    July 3, 2020

    ‘At the outset of the corona crisis I wrote an article, about the essential uselessness of the term “corona cases“ in our public discourse at that moment. Leaning on the ideas of the Swiss linguist Saussure, who argued that all semantic meaning is relational, I described the term as a classic “empty” or “floating” signifier.’

    ‘Why? Because we clearly lacked the contextual armature needed to make any sense of its utility as an indicator of serious health consequences from the virus. In other words, it was being used to indicate a deeply threatening reality per se when, in fact, we did not have the relational information needed to arrive at this conclusion.’

    ‘Almost three months have passed since then, and we now have a much clearer idea of what “corona cases” means from a serious illness and mortality point of view for the overwhelming majority of people. The answer: near complete deliverance from concern.’

    ‘If you don’t believe me, listen to Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Officer for England, Chief Medical Adviser to the UK Government, Chief Scientific Adviser at the Department of Health and Social Care (UK) and Head of the National Institute for Health Research (UK) who, on May 11th, said of the virus: “The great majority of the people will not die from it….. Most people, uh well, a significant proportion of people, will not get this virus at all at any point in the epidemic which is going to go on for a long period of time. Of those that do, some of them will get the virus without even knowing it, they will have a virus with no symptoms at all, asymptomatic carriage. Of those that get symptoms, the great majority, probably 80 per cent, will have a mild or moderate disease. It might be bad enough for them to go to bed for a few days, not bad enough for them to go to the doctor. An unfortunate minority will have to go as far as hospital. The majority of them will just need oxygen and then leave hospital. And then a minority of those will have to go to severe and critical care. And some of those, sadly, will die. But that’s a minority, one percent, or possibly even less than one percent overall. And even in the highest risk group, this is significantly less than 20 percent, i.e. the great majority of the people, even the very highest groups, if they catch this virus will not die. And I really wanted to make that point really clearly.

    ‘Indeed, if you go to Worldometers corona page today it says quite clearly that says that 99% of all known cases now are “mild”. And as Dr. Whitty clearly said, even among even among the 1% of cases that aren’t mild, the chances of mortality are rather low.’

    ‘And remember these are just the relatively small number of identified cases. There are in all likelihood millions if not billions of “infected”, but untested people running around not causing any trouble to anyone, which also means the chances of anything grave happening to you, or anyone else is probably even lower from a statistical point of view than Dr. Whitty and Worldmeters have portrayed it.’

    ‘So why is the press still obsessively talking about “cases” as if there were a linear correlation between them and threat to the health of the vast majority of people?’

    ‘I see only two possible explanations. The first is herd stupidity, that is, the deeply ingrained tendency of everyone with a keyboard and a twitter feed to—for all their often histrionic attempts to portray themselves as “fiercely independent”—studiously ape the central presumptions of the corporate media’s view of reality and confine their institutional critiques to the very peripheral realms of nuance and style.’

    ‘The second possibility is flat-out institutional corruption, that is, that people in very high places have told their servants in the media to keep the panic, and the enhanced control of the population it enables, going as long as possible.’

    ‘This disconnect between the obsessive tracking of “cases” and the assessment of real-life dangers to the population often verges on the comical.’

    ‘For example, on June 23rd, the Boston Globe ran a piece with the following headline: “A number of Southern and Western states are seeing a spike in COVID-19 cases. Why aren’t their death rates rising, too”? What follows is a 1000 word article that studiously avoids what is perhaps the most obvious conclusion a person might reach in the face of such data: that, outside the realm of senior citizens in nursing homes this thing simply might not be as fatally dangerous as we’ve been led to believe. Unbelievably, the prime message sent to the reader of the article about this patently good news is that we must be just as vigilant as ever going forward.’

    ‘Given what we now know, it is out and out journalistic malpractice to continue to harp on the growth of “cases” as the prime indicator of the dangers we face from the epidemic. The only statistics that can give us any concrete sense of what we actually face in this realm are rates of ICU admissions and deaths.’

    ‘The rest is fear porn, pure and simple.’

    https://www.counterpunch.org/2020/07/03/new-corona-cases-a-phrase-thats-tells-us-very-little-if-anything-about-the-actual-levels-of-danger-we-face/

    1. Fear porn?

      “White House chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci said Sunday that fully vaccinated Americans should “go the extra step” and wear masks when traveling to parts of the country with low vaccination rates.”

      https://nypost.com/2021/07/04/fauci-flip-flops-says-vaccinated-should-wear-masks-in-parts-of-us/

      That’s gonna be a big fat NOPE.

      What needs to be a YES is Nuremburg Trial for everyone involved in the CCP Flu scamdemic, one that concludes with firing squads and gallows.

      1. “go the extra step”

        Some clarification please. Is this because the “vaccine” doesn’t protect them, or because the vaccinated are a danger to normal people?

        1. Likely because even the most effective vaccine (appears to be Pfizer) is about 90% effective against the Delta variant. So, fully vaccinated people might still get symptoms, even if the symptoms are mild. The vax-but-sick person may then go on to spread to an unvaxxed person. I guess Fauxi still wants the herd to protect the unvaccinated, even if the unvaccinated have made it crystal clear that they don’t want anyone’s help.

          I know that’s not a great answer for the vaccine refusers, but that appears to be the reasoning of the public health officials.

          1. A great answer for the group that doesn’t want the vaccine is as follows,

            The health authorities have no credibility.
            Censorship of news to push the fear mongering and false narratives of the biggest medical fraud of all time is evident.
            Big Pharmacy has no liability on vaccines.
            Inaccurate tests and bribed Medical to beef up Covid deaths and denial of viable medicines to reduce deaths for deadly respirators is medical mal practice.
            Evidence that Covid was used to make it easier to rig a election by criminals.
            Evidence the Globalist Monopolies looted the tax payer by massive relief packages filtered to them .
            Destruction of small business making monopolies even more monopolized and enriched.
            Evidence of lockdowns and masks not being effective.
            Evidence of unjustified fear mongering and false narrative over what the risk of Covid was.
            Unjustified vaccination of low risk groups including pregnant women, people who already had Covid, and children.
            Censorship of deaths and adverse reactions to vaccines that would of normally in a sane world would of barred continuance of the expermental
            gene therapy vaccine.
            Panademic declared based on medical fraud and false projection on what death count would be.
            Incorrect in not quarantining of high risk group, as opposed to the globe be lockdowned, masked and subjected to vaccine.
            Lack of informed consent by the vaccinated by false or committed information on vaccines.
            I could go on and on , but the group that doesn’t want a vaccine under these circumstances have solid ground for not engaging in this epic medical mal practice fraud of all times.

          2. The Delta variant poses no greater risk to the world than the original Covid-19 virus. The epidemic is quickly disappearing here in the USA–it’s virtually 100% certain that the Covid-19 will be history by the end of the summer. Why? Because EVERY SINGLE OTHER RESPIRATORY VIRAL epidemic ended all on its own after it infected and made its way through the population. You don’t seen cases of the 1918 Spanish Flu virus occurring and outbreaks from the 1918 virus popping up all over the place, do you?

            The number of deaths from everywhere in the USA from Covid-19 are going down to almost nothing so it doesn’t matter if 100,000 people get the variant if none of them gets seriously ill or die. The Covid-19 epidemic is done so stick a fork in it.

            And just knock it off with your chatter about the Delta variant. You sound like Faux-Xi’s sidekick.

      2. Pakistani Police superintendent Malik Mahmood dropped dead shortly after receiving his Covid jab!

        https://www.bitchute.com/video/qxooE3H2TQxj/

        BTW, I don’t use their Orwellian word BS. It isn’t a “jab”, it a farking injection. An experimental drug being used on a wide scale that has people dropping like flies and miscarriages. And instead of elite, I prefer globalist scum of the Earth who need to be taken out and shot.

        “Oooh, too harsh!”

        These are crimes against humanity we’re witnessing. When are we going to put a stop to it?

          1. “jab” Traditional UK slang

            Forgive me if you think “vaccine” against something that seems to be not so deadly and just about died out is “effective” and necessary. I think Farr’s law was in effect, even on the blown up numbers and the bogus 45 cycles test, and can’t see where the “jabs” had any effect on the population and illness and deaths.

            Could it be called a “dildo”?

          2. “jab” Traditional UK slang, many years going now.

            Likewise, in the US, you get a “shot”.

          3. It’s an experimental drug that’s injected and has killed thousands already. They are trivializing it with this “slang.”

      3. “White House chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci said Sunday”

        I really can’t believe anyone still believes what that lying little wart says.

        “A lot of what you’re seeing as attacks on me, quite frankly, are attacks on science ,” Dr. Anthony Fauci

        If you don’t believe me you don’t believe science and you will be struck down by the fictitious 81 million person army that voted for Joe Biden.

        1. If you don’t believe me you don’t believe science and you will be struck down by the fictitious 81 million person army that voted for Joe Biden.
          If you don’t believe me you don’t believe science and you will be struck down by the fictitious 81 million person army that voted for Joe Biden.

          I’m guessing the DNC has hired Chinese bot farms to give Biden most of the pitifully few views and “likes” his insipid, cloying videos generate on social media.

          The Most Popular President in US History: Biden’s 4th of July Speech Gets 10,000 Views on White House YouTube Channel

    2. “The only statistics that can give us any concrete sense of what we actually face in this realm are rates of ICU admissions and deaths.”

      I’ve been saying this for a year. It seems that the medical establishment, MSM and most governments around the world have simply lost the heads over the Covid-19 “pandemic”. To see that idiot director of WHO give dire warnings about the “VARIANT” just proves that this was always a con job akin to GloBull Warming.

  4. Mid-year prediction: Real Journalists will be forced to reluctantly report on the increasingly un-ignorable tales of buyer regret.

  5. Videos: 30 People Show Up To See Biden, While 45,000 Head To Trump Rally

    by Steve Watson
    July 5th 2021, 4:05 am

    Around 30 people showed up on Saturday to meet Joe Biden during a stop in Michigan, while in Florida 45,000 crammed into Sarasota County Fairgrounds to see President Trump speak.

    There’s something amiss here. Who won the election?

    That’s not even a line at the Porta-Potty at a Trump rally.

    Guessing they had to post a Craigslist ad to get them there.

    That is it? Where’s all the people that voted for him?

    Had more people at my place for a cookout

    I’ve seen longer lines at the grocery store.

    “What am I doing?” asks a confused Joe Biden while shaking hands with people

    Replies:

    More people attend parades for youth football in Loachapoka, AL than that.

    Wow, they’re there in the 10s and more 10s.
    Impressive.

    I’ve seen more energy at funerals

    Trump has that many standing in line to use restroom

    All 20 people. Meanwhile, 40,000 were at Trumps rally, in the rain.

    Keep going, the crowd gets smaller. That is why the video ended so fast lol

    I’ve seen longer lines at a concession stand

    Hysterical! A video loop of a few people standing/waiting for Joe just to give the impression there’s a big crowd! That’s a FAIL Debbie!

    81 million votes, my ass.

    Proof the election was rigged

    They thought they ended Trump. Dumb bastards.

    https://twitter.com/stabenow/status/1411420924239351813

    1. Hysterical! A video loop of a few people standing/waiting for Joe just to give the impression there’s a big crowd! That’s a FAIL Debbie!

      The Democrat-Bolsheviks will pull out all the stops to create their own Potemkin village charades of “grassroots popularity” for this globalist puppet. What a complete farce.

  7. I guess one prediction I made came true. The “bring out yer dead” carts did indeed fail to return.

    1. I can hear the “Ben, that wasn’t much of a prediction, cuz there never were “bring out yer dead’ carts.

      Precisely. The hospitals were never overloaded. People who died in motorcycle wrecks did not die of CCP virus, etc.

      It’s an advantage to having this blog that I can remember certain points in time. My first realization this was all horsesh$t was when the hospitals were empty and they switched. Oh no, we gotta lock down more! cuz envelopes and curves and Farci! says so. The lock downs killed millions of people. That’s not my opinion, that was thousands of doctors and scientists who said that. Even the commie WHO said lock downs caused more harm than good.

      We know what you did, and nothing can stop what’s coming.

      1. And they are continuing with this epic Medical Fraud in collusion with censored news, Globalist Monopolies and corrupted Government and Agencies of Government, and foreign enemies.

        And Big Pharmacy isn’t even liable for this unjustified harm , that needs to be stopped immediately before they go after children, pregnant women and the military with this unjustified medical harm of vaccines.

        Other Countries like UK, Canada, and Australia are even worse in the Medical Tyranny.
        But, the Medical fraud is a weapon of mass destruction without firing a shot to achieve objectives of a power grab of epic crime and fraud.

        Who is going to be held accountable for all the needless death , harm, financial destruction and looting taking place? Ironic that George Floyd is a metaphor that they put a knee to our breath and denied proper medical response. Another metaphor is the collapsing Condo in Florida with their fraud that climate change caused it when it was corruption that caused it.

        1. What the headline giveth …

          “Miami condo collapse prompts questions over role of climate change
          “Experts suggest vulnerability of south Florida to rising seas could lead to destabilization of further buildings”

          The body of the story taketh away …

          “The exact cause of the disaster that befell the Champlain Towers South building in Surfside on Thursday has yet to be fully determined, although a 2018 engineering report on the structure warned of ‘significant cracks and breaks in the concrete’ and that design flaws and deteriorating waterproofing could cause ‘exponential damage’ via the expansion of these cracks.

          “At the time of the building’s sudden collapse, repairs on its roof were taking place but the restoration of concrete had not started on the 40-year-old condo. A total of 10 people are confirmed dead due to the crumpled building, with 151 people unaccounted for.

          “The disaster has highlighted the precarious situation of building and maintaining high-rise apartments in an area under increasing pressure from sea-level rise. Experts say that while the role of the rising seas in this collapse is still unclear, the integrity of buildings will be threatened by the advance of salty water that pushes up from below to weaken foundations.

          “’When this building was designed 40 years ago the materials used would not have been as strong against salt water intrusion, which has the potential to corrode the concrete and steel of the foundations,’ said Zhong-Ren Peng, professor and director of the University of Florida’s International Center for Adaptation Planning and Design. ‘Cracks in the concrete allows more sea water to get in, which causes further reactions and the spreading of cracks. If you don’t take care of it, that can cause a structure failure.’

          The geography of the area can also prove challenging for construction.

          Champlain Towers South was built near the coast of what is a narrow barrier island flanked by the Atlantic Ocean on one side and Biscayne Bay on the other. Such barrier islands naturally shift position over time due to the pounding ocean, requiring a certain amount of engineering to keep them fixed in place.

          Oh, (big surprise) this story is from The Guardian. Go here …

  8. Regret to inform you, treasonous globalists, but waving an American flag doesn’t fool anyone when you’ve been going all out to censor and suppress anyone who challenges globalist narratives or agendas.

    Zuck Goes Full Cringe: Anti-American Globalist Mark Zuckerberg Rides Hydrofoil Surfboard with US Flag for 4th of July

    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/07/zuck-goes-full-cringe-anti-american-globalist-mark-zuckerberg-rides-hydrofoil-surfboard-us-flag-4th-july/

    Through his wildly popular platforms – Facebook, Instagram, etc – Zuckerberg has wiped out conservative speech in the United States in less than ten years. Most conservative users have been banned or censored at least once. It doesn’t matter how large or small they are. Freedom of speech and patriotic speech means absolutely NOTHING to Mark Zuckerberg.

      1. Zuckerberg is the embodiment of the globalist oligarchs’ implacable hatred of free speech and pathological need to control The Narrative by censoring and de-platforming truth-tellers. Waving an American flag while displaying open antipathy toward everything that made America great is the dictionary definition of chutzpah. Epic fail, Zuckerberg.

        1. “When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross”?
          https://english.illinoisstate.edu/sinclairlewis/sinclair_lewis/faq/faq-homepage.shtml
          Attributed to Sinclair Lewis, but not certain.

          I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the Zuck video is fake, but he’s clueless if he thinks he can reinvent himself as a patriot after all this time. You can tell from comments on YT, political sites, here that people are very, very angry at the global scum.

          1. You can tell from comments on YT, political sites, here that people are very, very angry at the global scum.

            Just about everyone I know is fed up to the back teeth with the never-ending lies and corruption from the globalists and their Quislings. Even the dullest of the sheeple have figured out they’re being lied to by the MSM, and the heavy-handed suppression of truth-tellers by the globalists and their creepy Orwellian tech companies hasn’t gone unnoticed.

          2. You can tell from comments on YT, political sites, here that people are very, very angry at the global scum.

            And those are the comments that aren’t censored or de-platformed. The YouTube dislikes keep comin’.

    1. because ‘this land is stolen

      So, is BLM hiring ships to repatriate Africans to Wakanda?

      I mean, they’re invaders too.

  9. Jan. 6 Detainees Confined 23 Hours a Day, Attorneys Say

    BY ISABEL VAN BRUGEN
    July 5, 2021

    Dozens detained in federal prison awaiting trial following the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol building are being subject to solitary confinement, lack of required medical care, and restricted access to defense counsel, according to two attorneys and the father of a defendant.

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/jan-6-detainees-confined-23-hours-a-day-attorneys-say_3886969.html

    1. How many of these “insurrectionists” were peaceful protestors up to the point that the Capitol Police started firing dangerous flash-bangs into their midst? The contrast between how our corrupt FBI and DoJ went after the participants at the Stop the Steal rally, as opposed to their kid-glove treatment of the globalist-funded Antifa-BLM rioters, arsonists, and looters, tells all.

      BLM Rioter Who Smashed Car Window in a Toddler’s Face Avoids Jail After Lawyer Says it Was an “Emotional Time”

      by Paul Joseph Watson
      June 30th 2021, 9:02 am

      A video from the incident, which occurred in Fredericksburg VA during last year’s George Floyd riots, shows a BLM mob surrounding the vehicle before Victor Miles II smashes the glass which shatters all over the child in the back seat.

      The clip appears to show Miles deliberately targeting the toddler.
      For this despicable act, Miles received a suspended sentence of just 90 days for assault and destruction of property charges and the assault charge will be completely removed from his record if he stays out of trouble for a year.

      Defense attorney Eugene Frost justified the pathetic sentence by arguing that Miles was angry because, “It was a very emotional time all the way around.”

      Miles was originally facing a 5 year prison sentence on felony charges of unlawful wounding, but now he is free to walk the streets and attack anyone else who doesn’t bow to the BLM mob.

      A Guardian analysis of legal records following last year’s devastating nationwide riots found that, “The vast majority of citations and charges against George Floyd protesters were ultimately dropped, dismissed or otherwise not filed.”

      In addition, NYPD data shows that out of the 118 arrests that were made in the Bronx in June 2020, 73 were dismissed while 18 cases remain open and there were 19 convictions for lesser crimes like trespassing which carry no jail time.

      1. Having done a couple fairly substantial research papers on mob mentality, collective behavior, etc., I can say humans (even those who are normally non-aggressive/violent), under the right conditions, are capable of some pretty horrible, quickly escalating behavior. Add to that the unpopular fact that lower I.Q.’s corelate with higher propensity for violence, and it’s not hard to discern what’s happening and why.
        I pretty much keep to myself, avoid crowds, and although I’ve never wanted to own one…have bought a nice, new Smith and Wesson Stainless Steel 357 magnum because…I don’t want to be sitting like a damn duck if some wound-up zealous nutjob(s) decide to get cute and try to break in to my home.

    3. So where is Amnesty International on this? Or the ACLU, or the SPLC? These sound like clear infractions of the 6th and 8th Amendments.

      1. “the SPLC”

        Is that a joke?

        Allegedly a “civil rights organization” at the time of its founding, it transformed into a (tax-exempt) shakedown racket that has more recently become an unapologetic proponent of white genocide.

        This isn’t Facebook. We can call out the SPLC for advocating white genocide here, and some of us can *never* be cancelled for speaking the truth about it, because we are off your government / corporate plantation.

      2. the ACLU,
        The ACLU has become a joke, bought and paid for by big tech. i offered them some money ($100) if they would tell me what they were doing/were going to to prevent the censorship of Trump and the Socialists. (You may not know but socialists were also “kicked off Facebook” according to Jimmy Dore)
        They never responded even after I send them 2 more requests.

        1. The ACLU used to fight for civil liberties. Now they are craven toadies of the DNC who fight only to advance globalist-promoted causes like forcing schools to let biological males into their female bathrooms and locker rooms.

    1. There are 176 pages of different cryptos at that link. If that’s a product of capitalism then maybe the commies are right, about what I don’t know, but this crypto nonsense is obviously a failure of something?

      Innocent until proven guilty. If the evidence proves beyond a reasonable doubt the suspects are guilty then they should be sentence to the maximum. If this were in New York, California, Oregon, Washington state, Minnesota, or Illinois they would be released on their own word they will appear on their court date.

      In Fresno, CA this last week, an armed robber was caught, and since the state has lowered bails to nothing, he was able to post bail and only spent 7 hrs in jail! He is now back on the street.

    2. That was funny. They say once the comedians can make fun of the irrational ……wait under this environment its censored, can’t make fun of the irrational.

  10. This is an article by Real Journalists.

    New York Times — Rep. Adam Kinzinger on the Moral Failure of Republicans and the Big Lie (7/2/2021):

    https://archive.is/MoMOq

    No article excerpt needed, but note the use of the Archive website to share links to globalist sources that do not generate revenue for globalists. The 2020 election was stolen.

      1. “The Plot To Steal America.”

        The Globalist Monopolies are no doubt in alliance with Communist China in this plot to steal America.

        Of course they criminally rigged the election to take back their takeover from within, from the pushback from the Trump election. US Citizens and Citizens of other Countries are held captive by censored news, false narratives, medical tyranny and fraud as method of mass destruction and control.

        Mao and Stalin killed by mass starvation, and reign of terror mass killings of perceived opposition to their Dictorships. Already needless deaths have occurred by the criminal and fraudulent power grab takeover. And Covid unleashed by the CCP in collusion with other treasonous Entities to harm is evident.

        Every move the current Biden Administration does is in furtherance of this criminal takeover. Go after the White race in US as the Innsurrectionist enemy.
        All these methods used by Stalin and Mao as two of the biggest mass murderers and control dictorships of all time are being used, like it isn’t obvious.

        1. Dumb ’em down, and profit.

          “All these methods used by Stalin and Mao as two of the biggest mass murderers and control dictorships of all time are being used, like it isn’t obvious.”

          Obvious or not, whatever they are doing seems to be working.

    1. The 2020 election was stolen and the Jan. 6 insurrection was a pre-planned Nancy Pelosi Production complete with hired thugs and actors in order to vilify and control those who were questioning the crime,

      1. Nancy Pelosi Production

        That would explain the concern for her missing laptop.

    2. I’m curious about this Big Lie. The way the libs tell it, Trump launched some kind of media campaign to “convince” his supporters that the election was stolen, and all 20 million of his voters fell on their knees and repeated the dogma. That’s not what I saw. I saw nearly every Trump supporter conclude, independently, that something bogus was going on, in every battleground state. Meanwhile, “conservative” Fox News was cheering on Biden. Geez.

  11. ““Marie and Tom’s basic plan ‘is to spend as if their wealth was in the bank when in fact it’s tied up in the equity of their home,’”

    Meet Marie and Tom Craterton. DebtDonkey Extraordinaires.

    1. ““Marie and Tom’s basic plan ‘is to spend as if their wealth was in the bank when in fact it’s tied up in the equity of their home,’”

      Which means much of it will end up in my wallet.

      😁

    2. Tommy & Marie
      she’s a little bit thrifty. he’s a little bit rock n roll

      (thank you. I’ll see myself out now)

    3. You gotta give these two credit. Sounds like they’re going to milk the system, and why not? It’s not as if thrift and work are rewarded. By the time the debt collectors show up, they’ll be dead.

  12. “I was sitting here contemplating what this new year is going to bring, and the biggest question that I have is where in the heck a frugal, cautious person like myself could ever get a return on cash. Treasuries look absolutely pitiful. I mean, what’s the point?”

    Over a decade’s worth of rate suppression from the Fed, without their ever having ended the policy after the 2007-2009 financial crisis, has left market fundamentals dessicated by the hunt for positive yields.

    What’s left at this point is a Hobson’s choice between safe investments with a negative expected return, after factoring in current and expected future inflation, and risk assets that everyone agrees are in a bubble which may generate stellar returns for a bit longer until a point of future collapse, which nobody could foresee, takes them back down to earth.

    May the investing odds be ever in your favor.

    1. Sometimes there is no safe investment or no hedge against loss by inflation. The political circumstances can be so high risk that anything could happen.

  13. One more dimension of the Hobson’s choice in investing:

    Should you play it safe, and only invest out of your own savings after expenses, or take the government’s strong encouragement to leverage yourself to the hilt in order to invest in overpriced real estate, on the presumptions that planned future inflation will reduce your real debt burden over time, and in case of bubble collapse, the government will use bailouts to quickly end your period of underwateness and ensure that real estate soon always goes up again?

    1. “… in case of bubble collapse, the government will use bailouts to quickly end your period of underwateness …”

      Bahahahahaha … the government will do that for me but it will not necessarily do that for you.

      Always keep the wisdom of George Carlin in the back of your mind: “It’s a big club, and you ain’t a member”.

    2. They’re going to keep going with the program until circumstances prevent them from continuing. Roubini talked about one possible endgame. Are we there? No one knows.

    1. I was streaming the Sunday morning political talk shows on C-SPAN Radio yesterday (no clicks or revenue were given to globalists) and the Real Journalists were whining and crying about leaving that graveyard of empires.

      And why shouldn’t they? It’s not like a single one of them has a kid or grandkid in the U.S. military. When you’re a globalist / Real Journalist, “boots on the ground” is an other people’s problem.

      All wars are bankers’ wars, and globalists are merchants of death.

    2. “…another neocon misadventure.”

      The Afghan government will fold like a bed-sheet. And all that money, that should have been spent on our crumbling infrastructure, was buy time.

  14. It’s summertime in Region IV

    The “Your wife is hot” pregnant pause while showing a wife sitting in front of a fan, better call Blah-blah-blah AC commercials are airing again.

  15. The Delta variant poses no greater risk to the world than the original Covid-19 virus. The epidemic is quickly disappearing here in the USA–it’s virtually 100% certain that the Covid-19 will be history by the end of the summer. Why? Because EVERY SINGLE OTHER RESPIRATORY VIRAL epidemic ended all on its own after it infected and made its way through the population. You don’t seen cases of the 1918 Spanish Flu virus occurring and outbreaks from the 1918 virus popping up all over the place, do you?

    The number of deaths from everywhere in the USA from Covid-19 are going down to almost nothing so it doesn’t matter if 100,000 people get the variant if none of them gets seriously ill or die. The Covid-19 epidemic is done so stick a fork in it.

    And just knock it off with your chatter about the Delta variant. You sound like Faux-Xi’s sidekick.

    1. Must Watch! Dr Peter McCullough Exposes The Whole Truth About Covid

      Not my title. Dr. McCullough is much more open with what he thinks is going on: bioterrorism. And yes, SARS-CoV-2 has HIV domains.

          1. OMG, Red pilled this is a must see tape of Dr McCullough. I hope he has security protecting him, because he’s a courageous hero .
            Interesting about the speculation on the booster shot.

  16. If honest, competent inspectors take a hard look at Miami condo towers in the wake of the Surfside collapse, I suspect billions in Yellen Bux valuations are going to evaporate from their valuations once the extent of corner-cutting and fraud by the REIC comes to light.

    ‘Are we next?’ Worried high-rise dwellers take photos, seek answers after Surfside

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/realestate/are-we-next-worried-high-rise-dwellers-take-photos-seek-answers-after-surfside/ar-AALK9lg?ocid=uxbndlbing

    SURFSIDE, Fla. — After the Champlain Towers South Condo collapsed a couple of miles away from his home, Miami Beach resident Dan Ribeiro began feverishly snapping photos of what he said were concerning conditions in the garage of his high-rise — a condo taller and older than the one that partially collapsed in Surfside.

    He is so worried about the cracked concrete, rusted steel and water leaking inside the garage of the Maison Grande Condominium that he now has a “go-bag” by the front door with essential documents, a change of clothes for him and his wife and gift cards for hotel stays.

  17. Turo.com
    This is genius:

    “Meet Justin and Meagan, a powerhouse hosting couple out of Denver, CO. The team started sharing Meagan’s Jeep to try Turo on for size as a novel investment opportunity, and scaled their Jeep-sharing business up to six cars to help build their savings and diversify their investment portfolio as they maintain their full time jobs.”

    What other big ticket items can be rented out? Houses, vehicles, what else?

    1. I have some used toilet paper for rent. No more “we’re running out of toilet paper!”.

      1

    2. Yeah, I’m gonna share my car with strangers, who might put a thousand miles on it over a few days, and thrash it for a whopping $30 a day.

  18. California Daily news is non stop talk about the Delta variant and push for the under vaccinated Black and Hispanic communities to get the Vaccine.

    The situation is even more of a medical tyranny in the UK, Canada and Australia .

    Another fact that hasn’t been talked about in MSN is that at least 5 pharmacy manufacturing plants in foreign Countries that make the life saving meds against Covid suffered fires and one was mysteriously blown up. Now that number of events are a little odd along with Countries banning life saving drugs or threatening Drs. that they will go to jail if they don’t conform to the vaccine only narrative. In the US the censorship of Dispute to the one narrative seems to be the big method, along with bribery and threat of job loss .

    1. push for the under vaccinated Black and Hispanic communities to get the Vaccine

      Even though blacks are a miniscule minority in the Centennial state (~4%) and Hispanics are only ~11%, that drum is being beaten here too.

      The news stories being written are saying that it’s “raycism” why they aren’t getting the kill shot.

        1. RR,
          That seem to be the hardest hurdle to overcome for people that Government, Government Agencies, Ruling class and Monopolized Corporations could do something harmful deliberately.
          Censorship, false narratives, fear, extortion and bribery and out right threat is being used to pull off some agenda of epic evil .
          And when you read or see a tape on these unelected Entities plans and agendas, and how long they have been working on unleashing their agendas its unnerving. Even Henry Kissinger was talking about mass vaccinations going back to the Nixon years.
          I submit that Woodrow Wilson as a elitist Progressive was the President that set the stage for treasonous Government . He had a stroke in office . In 1923 around the same time Lenin had a stroke , which set the stage for the takeover by Stalin being the leader of the new Russian Communist Party.

          Just saying that events from about 1913, including the Panademic of 1918, World War I , enactment of Federal income tax , the Federal reserve, was the set up for taking Government by the people, away from the people.
          Woodrow Wilson was the most highly educated of all Presidents, he was a elitist and a racist they say.
          I pinpoint Woodrow Wilson being the President that wanted to take Government by the people and he set the seeds for it .

          1. the hardest hurdle to overcome for people that Government, Government Agencies, Ruling class and Monopolized Corporations could do something harmful deliberately

            Agreed

      1. Also interesting, how despite their refusing the vax and everything being open again, black and Hispanic corpses aren’t piling up. I’m gonna guess that if you’re black that you’re more likely to die of a gang related gun shot than the virus.

      2. In Colorado,

        I think Black and Hispanic Communities are just smart and have been burned before by Government programs. Hispanics that have come from corrupt Countries no doubt don’t find it hard to believe that harm can comes from a Government.

  19. When so many credible Drs and Scientist were saying that the lockdowns, masks and a vaccine in every arm isn’t justified medically, or denial of life saving meds , the censorship of credible dispute becomes more oppressive.
    When is it more necessary to have the free flow of medical information than under a Panademic .

    You can’t talk about a obvious rigged election or your considered a Innsurrectionist terrorist.

    When did we lose the first amendment. It seemed to have happen over night , after years of fake news domination of false narratives by MSM.

    And censorship of the news or dispute to the narratives came on exactly when a Pandemic hits, and a National election was rigged!

    Whatever has taken over , its sinister and its already caused loss of life and financial destruction to targeted areas.

    The guy in the White House is a treasonous Puppet to the agenda of this criminal takeover.
    The first step in combating this for US Citizens is to perceive the truth, as horrific as it is. That Citizens would actually have forces that want to harm them and want to take away their freedoms and rights, and at worst kill them or disable them.
    You fellow American who is under their spell of fear mongering fraud are clueless to the harm this power grab is capable of, and censorship is preventing knowledge.

    1. Biden was a young jerk and now he’s an old one. He’s “failed up” all the way to the top.
