It Will Be Shocking To Many People Who Have Only Experienced Rates Falling

A report from KUTV Salt Lake City in Utah. “‘We keep talking about housing crash, housing crash, housing crash,’ said Dejan Eskic, senior research fellow at the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute — but he doesn’t see that happening. ‘The market’s on fire.'”

“Things have calmed down – a little. ‘The last 90, 120 days we’ve actually been able to breathe,’ said Clay Winder, a realtor at Keller Williams Westfield Real Estate. ‘It is still a seller’s market over a buyer’s market,’ Winder said, adding that it’s still hot – just not ‘habanero hot. We’re back down to chili sauce hot.'”

The Ahwatukee Foothill News. “The average sale prices for Ahwatukee properties dipped last month while inventory was up slightly and the number of units sold slightly decreased. The average price of a home sold in Ahwatukee decreased in November to $536,195 – down 5.6% from $566,695 in August. The marketing time to get a contract increased from 21 days in August to 31 in November.”

“In August, the number of units that closed escrow slipped to 125 units – 23% less than the average 155 units sold per month in the January-August market. The trend we noted in August continues in the November market with 135 units closing escrow. If inventory continues to increase and the number of units sold continues to decline, it could bode well for frustrated buyers.”

“There could be a slowing or even a reversal of the rising prices as well as an increase in the number of homes for sale. The increase in the number of active listings and the lower average prices of closed listings in November could portend a slowing down of property price increases in Ahwatukee. Metro Phoenix and Ahwatukee homeowners were hit hard by declining home values between 2007 and 2009. The current hot market is reminiscent of the market we experienced leading up to the real estate debacle. But now is not then.”

The Redwood City Press in California. “Like many other neighborhoods along the Peninsula, North Fair Oaks has recently become a hotbed for new developments. Texts and phone calls from developers wanting to buy the residents’ homes, often in cash, are the norm. But many feel that the past year has ushered in a new era, due in large part to Thomas James Homes, a Los Angeles-based real estate agency that has become a ubiquitous (and, by many, hated) name in parts of the Peninsula and South Bay.”

“Since coming last December into North Fair Oaks – San Mateo County’s largest unincorporated area, located between Redwood City and Menlo Park – TJ Homes has purchased half a dozen properties, tearing down the existing houses and building larger, more expensive ones in their place.”

“It wasn’t just the suddenness with which TJ Homes began buying up properties that put the residents on high alert, but the fact that $1.5 million ranch-style houses were becoming two-story mansions that tower over the adjacent homes and sell for double the cost. ‘My patio, my bedroom, my living room, my other bedroom, my bathroom, they all look out west,’ said 36-year resident Susanne Beattie, who lives adjacent to one of TJ Homes’ new developments. ‘And now here they are, 5 feet away, putting up a just-a-couple-inches-under-27-foot house. And the second story has nine windows looking onto me.'”

“In the last five years alone, the median housing price in San Mateo County has nearly doubled, from $1,350,000 in October 2016 to $2,110,000 in October 2021, according to the California Association of Realtors. Redfin reported a 100.2% increase in home prices in November, compared to last year, with houses selling for a median of $2 million.”

The New York Post. “What would we do with a half-billion square feet of Manhattan office space if most of it remains empty? It’s the loaded question about the city’s future that not even our brightest, most optimistic minds want to touch. What if our office towers, the pride of our skyline, turn into towering white elephants?”

From Stuff New Zealand. “The relentless rise of house prices defined the market in 2021, but experts say the tide has turned and next year will be different. Auction activity was reported to be cooling, with fewer attendees and bidders, and more auctions passing in. CoreLogic chief property economist Kelvin Davidson says the market is slowing and there are four key reasons why: affordability challenges, rising mortgage rates, a tighter lending environment and an increase in listings.”

“Kiwibank chief economist Jarrod Kerr says at the start of the year a two-year rate in the low 2s was common, but now finding a two-year fixed rate below 4 per cent is virtually impossible. And they have further to go, with an increase of another percentage point likely across the board, he says. ‘While that will still be much lower than the double-digit highs of the past, it is a meaningful increase, and it will be shocking to many people who have only experienced rates falling.'”

“After months at record lows, listings have started rising. The latest Realestate.co.nz figures show new listings at the highest level in seven years and the total number of houses for sale up 5.1 per cent annually in November. New CoreLogic analysis supports this, with the total stock of listings up almost 40 per cent since its recent trough. Davidson says while the level of listings is still low, the gap to where they were at the same time in previous years is steadily closing.”

“‘The turning point does look to have been reached, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see listings continue to increase into 2022, as new sellers come forward and sales activity itself tails off further,’ he said.”

From Al Jazeera. “China’s crackdown on private enterprise in 2021 wiped more than $1 trillion off the market value of some of the country’s largest companies. The crackdown has left many businesses and investors wondering nervously about the future of growth and innovation in China. ‘For companies, this means that their job is no longer to make money, but instead to contribute to societal goods,’ Trey McArver, an analyst at Trivium China, told Al Jazeera. ‘Where companies are not seen doing that, they will face swift regulatory action.'”

“The lending curbs have been cited as a primary driver of the liquidity crisis that led to two of China’s largest private developers – Evergrande Group and Kaisa – defaulting on their loans. ‘The regulatory crackdowns are part of a broader paradigm shift that has taken place in how Beijing is approaching its economic policy and management,’ Shehzad Qazi, managing director of China Beige Book International, told Al Jazeera. ‘This includes acknowledging that China’s old debt-fueled, investment-heavy growth model has run out of road.'”

    1. Wall Street Journal — Omicron Disruptions Prompt Easing of Some Restrictions (12/28/2021):

      “Governments and policy advisers are showing signs of taking a lighter touch toward the fast-spreading Omicron variant, reducing quarantine times and in some instances foregoing social-distancing restrictions as they try to keep their economies moving.”

      COVID didn’t destroy the economy. Government destroyed the economy.

      “States reported 512,553 cases on Monday—the most for a single day since the start of the pandemic—as states caught up after pausing for the Christmas holiday, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of data from Johns Hopkins University.”

      https://archive.fo/Ghis8

      Half a million “cases” sounds alarming, except when you consider that the concept of a positive “case” is meaningless.

      We are so over this sh*t. And we’re taking our country back.

      1. Half a million “cases” sounds alarming, except when you consider that the concept of a positive “case” is meaningless.

        Yup, the bulk of them are asymptomatic, meaning the tests retuned false positives. This was done for one purpose: to spur another panic.

      2. Half a million “cases”

        More like a blatant lie told about a subtle lie. According to Worldometer, zero “cases” reported in the US on Saturday, 207,065 on Sunday and 229,016 on Monday.

        1. The updated it to show ~250K cases on Christmas Day.

          500K cases? Even if true, hospitals seem to be coping just fine. Which means most are just experiencing the equivalent of a common cold.

          1. The local news is that our hospital is “overflowing” with Covid cases and they’re on ventilators. First off, ventilators are recognized and death sentences for Covid and not best practice according to one of the nurses. Secondly, the hospital stats are available online. The number of beds being used is not extraordinary and only 15% tested positive.

          2. The local news here seems to be giving the “hospitals are bursting” narrative a break. Instead, they are showing long lines to get tested.

    2. ““They (the hospitals) are paid by the government to do a PCR test on every patient who walks in the door… Then they are paid extra for a COVID admission to the hospital, they are paid an extra 20% bonus on the entire hospital bill, if the hospital ONLY uses Remdesivir to treat the patient.

      “And then if the patient goes on a ventilator, which is a consequence of some of the toxicity of Remdesivir and the restriction of fluids and nutrients that they are also doing, and once the patient is on a ventilator there is ANOTHER incentive bonus to the hospitals. If the patient dies in the hospital, there is another incentive payment,” Vliet said.”

      This is about billionaire globalists and their puppets engaging in mass murder for profit, and the whole thing is funded by the taxpayer. We need to execute these people.

    3. As someone who recently spent a week and a half in the hospital for covid pneumonia and received remdesvir, I didn’t get the sense that I was a bounty. Remdesvir is just one drug among about three or four they throw at most hospitalized patients. It seems to have kinda worked because over all there seem to be fewer deaths despite increasing hospitalizations.

      The real scandal, as someone who lives in a very blue state, are the political decisions to not offer early treatment, at all. Vaccines and masks and that’s it. Go to the Er in horrible shape with a 96% o2 sat, and they send you home with Tylenol and cough medicine. No early treatments at all.

      Return to the Er two days later even sicker with an 88 o2 and they admit you and give you remdesvir some arthritis drug and lots of steroids and anti-blood clotting medicine along with supplemental oxygen. I know this because it happened to me.

      There are no out-patient treatments for patients like myself not considered severe risks. I am in my 40’s, no comorbidities and a BMI of 25. Nine days later my o2 went back to 93% without supplemental oxygen at rest. The pulmonologist did seem a little cavalier about putting people in the ICU when I talked to him but he claimed it was only it was life or death after all the other treatment failed.

      I could have avoided the Er entirely if there were some treatments available for me as soon as I got sick but there are none. “Wear your mask” and “get 3 or 4 vaccine shots pleb” is the only treatment available to deplorables in my state.

  1. ‘Metro Phoenix and Ahwatukee homeowners were hit hard by declining home values between 2007 and 2009. The current hot market is reminiscent of the market we experienced leading up to the real estate debacle. But now is not then’

    We can all agree the year is 2021, for a few more days.

      1. Nobody could’ve seen it coming!
        And yet you have people wanting to double down on this nonsense. (see San Fran. when the Mayor wanted to crack down on the lawlessness.)

        1. And yet you have people wanting to double down on this nonsense.

          They are under orders from their Globalist masters. The objective is to demoralize the citizenry, to make them accept that crime and lawlessness are inevitable (bonus points if they can be made to believe that it’s their fault), while the government tightens the screws on them.

  2. “‘We keep talking about housing crash, housing crash, housing crash,’ said Dejan Eskic, senior research fellow at the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute — but he doesn’t see that happening. ‘The market’s on fire.’”

    I smell fear. Is that you, Dejan?

  3. ‘It is still a seller’s market over a buyer’s market,’ Winder said, adding that it’s still hot – just not ‘habanero hot. We’re back down to chili sauce hot.’”

    Every hack REIC shill who uses such lame and misleading analogies should be kicked in the jimmies on general principle.

    1. “Every hack REIC shill who uses such lame and misleading analogies should be kicked in the jimmies on general principle.”

      hell YES! and also apply to wanna-be-warrior bidnezz people with the constant military slogans, like “ALL HANDS ON DECK!! ” used by so many companies?

      it’s JUST A DAMN MEETING, not D-DAY for Christ sakes!

  4. ‘My patio, my bedroom, my living room, my other bedroom, my bathroom, they all look out west…And now here they are, 5 feet away, putting up a just-a-couple-inches-under-27-foot house. And the second story has nine windows looking onto me’

    Ain’t bubbles great Susan? You can take solace in the chance that the shack will probably not have 9 people living there.

    ‘In the last five years alone, the median housing price in San Mateo County has nearly doubled, from $1,350,000 in October 2016 to $2,110,000 in October 2021, according to the California Association of Realtors. Redfin reported a 100.2% increase in home prices in November, compared to last year, with houses selling for a median of $2 million’

    Seems the UHS and redfin vary widely, but in any case, there’s no bubble here?

    1. “Seems the UHS and redfin vary widely”

      That’s gonna happen when your first priority is lying, obfuscating and fabricating. It’s the same as interviewing two co-perpetrators at the police station. Two stories from two liars attempting to conceal crime.

    1. Article blocked by paywall.

      Hopefully, if these kidz get pizzed off enough, they won’t blow up by shooting up their own school (in Minecraft).

      Better to focus that anger (in Minecraft) and take out some *soft targets* like some local Real Journalists who support medical tyranny and some local Blue Checkmark Twitter.

  5. ‘at the start of the year a two-year rate in the low 2s was common, but now finding a two-year fixed rate below 4 per cent is virtually impossible. And they have further to go, with an increase of another percentage point likely across the board’

    Is that a lot?

    ‘While that will still be much lower than the double-digit highs of the past, it is a meaningful increase, and it will be shocking to many people who have only experienced rates falling’

    DONG!

    ‘After months at record lows, listings have started rising…figures show new listings at the highest level in seven years and the total number of houses for sale up 5.1 per cent annually in November. New CoreLogic analysis supports this, with the total stock of listings up almost 40 per cent since its recent trough’

    From record lows to 7 year highs? Where did all these shacks come from?

  6. Realtors embittered by their fading looks and inability to sell shacks should probably be barred from consuming alcohol during air travel.

    EXCLUSIVE: ‘Delta Karen’ is revealed to be former Playboy model, Baywatch actress and Raiders cheerleader who now works as realtor: FBI arrest her for assault on passenger, 80, who took his mask off to eat (though she wasn’t wearing a mask either!)

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10348567/PICTURED-Foul-mouthed-real-estate-agent-arrested-SPITTING-PUNCHING-80-year-old-passenger.html

    1. She thought she could pick on an old man and make him do what she told him to. This wasn’t about masks, it was about a narcissistic power trip. Notice she wasn’t even wearing her own mask!

      The best part about it was the old guy calling her Karen and a bitch. He wasn’t going to take her crap and that really set her off. Seems she picked the wrong target. Now she’s in big time trouble, though I’m sure the fact that she’s a woman will help her, especially when those crocodile tears start flowing in the courtroom.

    2. I was reading another publication about what happened leading up to this. She had gone to the restroom and was making her way back to her seat when the drink cart had blocked the aisle. The flight attendant told her find another seat until they were done, which annoyed her and she asked them “who am I, Rosa Parks?” The old man who just so happened to be sitting right there essentially told her to stop being ridiculous, that she wasn’t black, this wasn’t Alabama, and they were on a plane not a bus. That set her off and then she started with her mask nonsense.

      She appears to be drunk, and in fact she has 2 DUI arrests in the past year, one of which is still pending, and she’s on 3 years probation for the other. This lady is in hot water. Of course, it’s CA (the DUIs) so they’ll probably give her a slap on the wrist. Reading about the 2nd DUI arrest she was combative with the police and it was a crash that precipitated her arrest. She’s a train wreck.

  7. ‘For companies, this means that their job is no longer to make money, but instead to contribute to societal goods’

    Not making money is the problem Trey.

    ‘This includes acknowledging that China’s old debt-fueled, investment-heavy growth model has run out of road’

    It was a ponzi scheme Shehzad.

    1. Along these lines, the globalist scum media are playing up how nevergrande is gonna finish those airboxes, dammit! And they got interest payments this week to the gringos who are fooked again.

      So how do you staff up, asking people you stiffed already to come to work, and make yer payments?

      You don’t!

      1. What’s the over/under on Evergrande stiffing its creditors on bond payments due today?

        Evergrande Faces Dollar Bond Coupons After Recent Default

        https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-12-27/evergrande-faces-first-big-post-default-dollar-bond-coupon-test?sref=ibr3A0ff

        China Evergrande Group has two more dollar-bond coupon payments due Tuesday, interest that investors aren’t expecting will be paid after the property giant failed to do so on other debt.

        The embattled firm has $50.4 million of interest due on a 7.5% 2023 bond and another $204.8 million tied to an 8.75% 2025 note, according to Bloomberg-compiled data. Evergrande has a 30-day grace period to deliver the payments before a default can be declared, according to a bond issuance document seen by Bloomberg News. That would begin Wednesday if payments aren’t made. The company had no immediate comment.

    2. For companies, this means that their job is no longer to make money

      This means but one thing: scarcity. It’s why people in Communist countries have to stand in long lines to get basic goods like bread or toilet paper.

      It also means that we need to start making our own sh!t again.

      1. For companies, this means that their job is no longer to make money
        This, I think, is the only reason the US might remain the dominant power. We are only going 1/2 communist. Right now just hating successful people not totally destroying them.

        1. This, I think, is the only reason the US might remain the dominant power. We are only going 1/2 communist. Right now just hating successful people not totally destroying them.

          Might be a good time to support local/made in USA goods, to keep those companies alive. It’s a shame the quality isn’t always better, but I’d much rather have a not-perfect tool around then no tool at all

          1. It’s a shame the quality isn’t always better, but I’d much rather have a not-perfect tool around then no tool at all

            (I’m looking at you, Klein)

  8. What if our office towers, the pride of our skyline, turn into towering white elephants?”

    Sorry, hard to watch your skyline when I’ve got to keep an eye out for roving packs of vibrants intent on redistribution of the wealth.

      1. There’s a number of bridges & tunnels in the greater NYC area where he has probably taken up residence.

  9. Every D voter is an accessory to the breakdown of law and order in our cities as Soros-installed DAs, “woke” police departments led and staffed by Affirmative Action hires, and corrupt & incompetent judicial officials have given the criminal element a free hand to prey on the melanin deficient.

    Man snatches purse from 85-year-old woman in NYC apartment building

    https://nypost.com/2021/12/28/nypd-reports-man-snatched-purse-from-85-year-old-woman/

    A heartless crook violently snatched a purse from an 85-year-old woman inside a Bronx apartment building on Sunday afternoon, police said.

    The male suspect was caught on surveillance camera committing the heinous theft inside the residential building near East 149th Street and Morris Avenue in Mott Haven at about 3:10 p.m., according to the NYPD.

    1. Dr. Bhakdi and Dr. Burkhardt have confirmed that, even in people who’ve died post-covid19 vaccination & where their death was not attributed to the adverse effects of vaccination, in almost all cases DID die as a result of vaccination.

      The numbers killed by these dangerous shots is much worse than we thought, already.

      But it’s what they’ve just discovered that’s much worse.

      We knew of blood clots from expressing spike protein.

      We were aware of autoimmune attack on ones own tissues expressing spike protein to which our killer lymphocytes were primed, such as myocarditis.

      But what’s new is the revelation that lymph node cells are also being invaded by the gene-based agents and marking THEM for auto destruction.

      When you destroy that part of the immune system, which we loosely call “immune surveillance”, every manner of nasty, latent infections, by viruses & also bacteria, explode, uncontrolled.

      Hundreds of millions of people are going to die of unrestrained tuberculosis, Epstein Barr virus, toxoplasmosis etc etc etc

      AND on top of this, the daily accidental production of cancer cells, normally deleted swiftly by immune surveillance, before they can divide, ceases.

      Guess what happens next?

        1. your video was by bhakdi. i watched it and spread it around. but i’m posting an article by mike yeadon. yes, yeadon backs bhakdi. but the snip from the article i posted were words written by yeadon, not me. if you click on the link, you’ll see…

          1. if you click on the link

            I did. I’ve been following Yeadon and Bhakdi since their series of open letters to the European Medicines Agency.

          1. Something that might be promising.

            MIT working on ultra sound breaking up the Covid spike protein. Could also apply to breaking up the vaccine produced spike protein, ….just saying.
            Also have been seeing black cumin and apple peels helping the vaccinated….just saying

  10. Meet the authors and architects of the Great Reset. They want only the best for you.

    EXPOSED: Meet Klaus Schwab’s 2021 Class of ‘Great Reset’ Soldiers

    https://rairfoundation.com/exposed-meet-klaus-schwabs-2021-class-of-great-reset-soldiers/

    The World Economic Forum’s goals are far more than remaking the economy. They want to physically alter you and your children.

    Klaus Schwab’s Young Global Leaders class of 2021 include the Lieutenant Governor, State of Michigan, a Senior Vice-President at Uber, racist activist Ibram X Kendi and executives at Dow, Pfizer and Merck among many others.

    Countries from all over the world are represented in the World Economic Forum’s latest crop of 112 potential globalist leaders. This class join radical left luminaries such as Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Peter Buttigieg, Emmanuel Macron, Gavin Newsom, Angela Merkel, Jacinda Ardern and many others.

    According to their website, the Young Global Leaders consist of “more than 1,400 members and alumni of 120 nationalities”. The individuals are trained to be “[A]ligned with the World Economic Forum’s mission,” to “drive public-private co-operation in the global public interest.” The WEF is known for their annual meeting of elitists at Davos, an alpine resort town in Switzerland.

    1. “112 potential globalist leaders … more than 1,400 members”

      Ben, get the ropes ready, cuz we got us a Nuremburg Trial v2.0!

      January 6th was only the beginning, you globalist sh*bags.

      Nobody ever elected any of you to govern anything.

    2. Of course its part of the take over plan to corrupt Government by getting all these Traitor leaders into key powerful Government positions.
      They should all be arrested for attempted takeover of the free World. A bunch of cockroaches or a virus of psychopaths that have seeped into powerful positions in Government to advance a. anti human new world order in lock step.

      1. If you hear someone say “Build Back Better”, they are part of the Innsurrection cult army that wants to take all freedoms from you and turn you into controlled cattle.

      1. Oh great, a bunch of foxes in the henhouse.

        Why don’t we just elect a bunch of people out of the phone book to represent the people. It would be better than the infiltrated Political Swamp.

        1. Maria Bartiromo is still there. Tulsi Gabbard, too. When Redpilled Redhead mentioned this group, I had never heard of it, though it’s not surprising that Klaus would want a youth contingent of his soldiers.

          1. it’s not surprising that Klaus would want a youth contingent of his soldiers

            It just goes to show how deep the infiltration is around the globe. And these are only the ones we know of.

        2. The wrong people are dying from COVID. We just lost the best singer in Il Divo. 😥 Yet Klaus is 80 years old and unaffected.

    1. California receives record amount of snowfall as the drought continues …

      Yea it’s a dry rain. Watch this Spring as CA releases all the extra water to the ocean because you know we are in a serious drought

    1. When they eliminated the height requirement for the NYC police force, I saw this policewoman, 5′ 2″ if even that, patrolling the subway car. Her uniform looked too big and she was dwarfed by her hat; it looked huge. People were snickering as she came by. Felt for her, but changing the rule was a dumb thing to do.

    2. “Sending policewomen up against violent felons usually doesn’t end well for Team Diversity.”
      I recall an old Youtube vid of 3 female (Scandanavian?) cops unsuccessfully trying to get a drunk man under control. It wasn’t until a male citizen came along and handily over-powered him. Then, the 3 female cops “took over.” “There was no audio, but you could tell they (women) were like, “ok, we got this now.” LOL!!

      1. I think that was in the UK.

        I recall another one where the female cops got their azzes handed to them by a middle eastern vibrant, who was able to walk away after cleaning their clocks.

    3. Maybe this is where they need to send all those gender-confused male athletes. Instead of picking on their female teammates, they can fill the quota slots for women cops and actually do some good.

      Companies raise over $12tn in ‘blockbuster’ year for global capital markets
      Central bank stimulus programmes contribute to ‘frantic pace’ of equity and debt fundraising

      Companies raised a record $12.1tn in 2021 by selling stock, issuing debt and inking new loans, as a torrent of central bank stimulus and the rapid recovery from the pandemic propelled many global markets higher.

      With a few days still left in the year, the cash haul is already up almost 17 per cent from 2020, which was itself a historic year, and almost a quarter above the take in 2019 before the coronavirus crisis, according to Financial Times calculations based on Refinitiv data.

      The ferocious pace of fundraising underscores just how easy financial conditions are in many parts of the world, most notably the US, where more than $5tn was raised.

      “It’s been a really blockbuster year,” said Chris Blum, a BNP Paribas banker who helps finance leveraged buyouts. “We anticipate it will continue into next year. Every year you kinda think markets will go down from this frantic pace but it will still be robust.”

      Gargantuan sums have been raised as companies such as the electric vehicle maker Rivian and the South Korean ecommerce business Coupang went public.

      Dozens of 10 and 11-figure loans were signed, including ones to fund Discovery’s merger with AT&T’s WarnerMedia unit and the freight rail operator Canadian Pacific’s takeover of rival Kansas City Southern. And investors in the roughly $10tn US corporate bond market lapped up deal after deal.

    2. How to cope with a housing market that’s hazardous to buyers’ mental health

      As she hunted for a home this summer, first-time buyer Xinyu Li found herself feeling emotionally overwhelmed. She and her boyfriend had several offers rejected, and Xinyu compulsively checked online listings.

      “It was a lot of stress and anxiety,” she says. “I had to go to therapy.”

      Xinyu’s psychotherapist advised her on mindfulness strategies and suggested looking at online listings just once a day. After Xinyu closed on a New York City condo and no longer devoted endless hours to her home search, she felt better and stopped seeing her therapist.

      Shopping for a home is a stressful experience even in normal times. Partly it’s the sheer size of the transaction — a house is the largest single purchase most people make. Then there are the emotional considerations about lifestyle issues such as commute times, school quality and neighborhood crime rates.

      Raising the stakes for homebuyers’ mental health, the housing market of 2021 is anything but normal. Prices have soared to record highs, inventory is super-tight and bidding wars are common.

      Those market conditions have intensified a process that’s always challenging into one that can test the mental health of even the most experienced homebuyer.

      “There’s a deeply emotional tie to homeownership in general,” says Ryan Gorman, president and CEO of Coldwell Banker Real Estate. “In a tough market and an inventory-constrained market, there are more buyers than there are homes to buy.

      Wall Street Warns Bond Market Rout Will Catch Up With Stocks

      – BofA analysts say divergence between stocks, bonds won’t last
      – U.S., European stocks trade near records despite tapering woes

      The era of abundant liquidity is coming to an end and stock markets trading at record highs won’t be able to stay immune for much longer, according to Bank of America Corp. strategists.

      This is the latest in a series of warnings by top Wall Street brokers that the exuberance, which has fueled the rally in European and U.S. equities, may not last. Stocks have so far largely ignored a worsening rout in bond markets, where investors are pricing in a swift tightening of monetary policy, as robust earnings and lack of investment alternatives drive risk appetite.

      “This divergence is unlikely to sustain and the risk is equities are forced to price in the increasingly unfavorable policy environment,” BofA’s strategists, including Gonzalo Asis, wrote in a note on Tuesday.

      1. So many warnings,
        so little CR8R

        Seems like it insofar as stocks are concerned. We’ve been hearing of an impending collapse for months while it marches higher and higher.

      Investors are increasingly turning to a tool to protect them if the US stock market careens lower in the coming weeks.

      Traders are buying put option contracts in ever greater numbers, hoping the derivatives will provide a hedge if stocks fall from record territory. The rising use of put contracts, including by the swell of new retail day traders who entered markets this year, has accompanied a surge of volatility in the $53tn US equity market.

      Stocks have whipsawed over the past month as traders have been confronted by the spread of the Omicron coronavirus variant, tighter monetary policy from the US Federal Reserve and the prospect that the White House’s flagship $1.75tn spending bill may stall in Congress.

      This has pushed both retail and institutional traders to embrace put options, which can pay if a security falls in price. It is a noteworthy shift, particularly among retail traders who this year had been relentless buyers of call options — derivatives that can be profitable if a stock rises in value.

      “When you have inflation, record high asset prices and rising interest rates, that makes for a pretty perfect storm for people wanting to buy a little extra protection,” said Tom Sosnoff, co-founder of Tastyworks, an online brokerage with hundreds of thousands of clients. “Any time you get to record highs people think ‘when is the shoe going to drop’.”

    What a lovely new world we are living in when you go out for a meal and a squad of police barge in, persecute a little boy then demand to see everyone else’s papers. This is the vax passport world so many are begging for. #NotAboutAVirus #NOVAXPASSPORTS

    1. CBS Censors Reporter’s Rant On How Covid Lockdowns Mentally Damage Children

      Chief legal correspondent Jan Crawford’s damning remarks were promoted by “Face the Nation” on Facebook and Twitter, but they were curiously omitted from the CBS morning show’s television broadcast.

      “It’s the crushing impact that our COVID policies have had on young kids and children,” she said, adding, “By far the least serious risk for serious illness.”

      She went on, pointing out children are more at-risk of dying in a car accident than dying from Covid-19.

If you choose to view this 2;56 video of Paul Joseph Watson braking down the play by play of the Flying Christmas Karen attacking the 80 year-old man who took his mask down to eat I suggest you put any kind of beverage out of hands reach to avoid any liquid exiting your nose and covering your keyboard.

  13. The Crimes of Anthony Fauci vol.1

    https://www.bitchute.com/video/Vzqe1mJAXxE2/

    2:32. From the description:

    This is a bombshell.

    If Dr Anthony Fauci was telling the truth in March 2020, today he’s hiding the truth. He’s knowingly perpetrated homicide. Global homicide.

    The Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE) Fauci, precisely outlined in this video, occurred in 2016 with the Denguevaxia vaccine. It killed over 600 Filipino children. The Philippines politicians, bureaucrats and French Pharmaceutical company executives of SanofiPasteur, who produced the vaccine, were charged with homicide for knowing what Fauci knows in this video. The crime with which Fauci must now be charged.

    The world must see this video and call for Anthony Fauci’s immediate arrest.

    1. “call for Anthony Fauci’s immediate arrest”

      After his conviction, I would pay money to kick the chair out from under his scrawny little @zz and watch him swing and kick in the air.

      We’re taking our country back. Globalists, this isn’t a threat, this is a promise.

      The Day Of The Rope can not come soon enough…

      1. We’re taking our country back. Globalists, this isn’t a threat, this is a promise.

        Will the mark of the beast be a QR code or a chip implanted in our hands? And if you don’t have one, you become an unperson?

    2. The world must see this video and call for Anthony Fauci’s immediate arrest.

      It’s pretty obvious that this monster has some very powerful people protecting him.

    3. I haven’t seen much about ADE of late. Original antigenic sin (OAS) appears to have taken its place in the initialism roulette.

  14. Myocarditis Under Age 40: An Update (3 minute read)

    1. It is now clear for men <40, dose two and dose three of Pfizer have more myocarditis than sars-cov-2 infection, and this is true for dose one and dose two of Moderna.
    2. Pfizer boosters (Dose three) have more myocarditis for men <40 than infection.
    3. Myocarditis post infection is more common as you get older, in contrast with myocarditis post vaccination, which is more common as you are younger (reverse gradients)

    But the truth is STILL WORSE than these data.

    1. If the authors fixed the denominator for viral infection (i.e. used sero-prevalance), it would look even worse
    2. If the authors separate men 16-24 from 12-15 and 25-40, it would likely look worst in 16-24 age group.

  15. Chupacabras are not just real; they make excellent allies in the fight against realtor encroachments into southwestern neighborhoods.

      1. I think that perhaps that threat hasn’t been made because seniors are already the most vaxxed demographic. Of course, they were discussing withholding other government bennies from the unvaxxed. If they want to cast a wide net, requiring it from those who receive welfare payments could be an option. But for some reason, they don’t seem to care a whole lot about getting that bunch jabbed.

      2. Beginning to sound like Enemy at the Gates where Nikita Khrushchev wants ideas to prevent the soldiers from defecting.

  16. You made the game fun to watch back when they stood for the anthem and it was played by men not Social Justice Warriors.

    RIP John Madden

  17. Satan awoke from his afternoon nap today and traveled to the Ninth Circle in hopes of seeing a new arrival. He was pleased when he smelled the fear of his now permanent guest, a betrayer of country. Before he even caught sight of him Satan could tell from the smell who had arrived.

    He said “Hello Harry”.

    1. It’s funny to listen to local Vegas radio hosts struggle to say something nice about Dingy Harry.
