Nobel Laureate Economist Robert Shiller Puts the Odds of a US Recession at 50% Due in Part to a Self-Fulfilling Prophecy as Everyone Worries About a Downturn

Nobel laureate economist and Yale professor Robert Shiller said there’s a good chance the US economy will enter a recession, partly because growing alarms about one could turn into a self-fulfilling prophecy.

“The fear could lead to the actuality,” he told Bloomberg Wednesday.

In his view, the chances of a recession within the next two years are 50%, which is “much higher than normal.”

Rising Rents, Gas and Food Prices Push U.S. Inflation to 40-Year High of 8.6%, CPI Shows

The numbers: The cost of living jumped 1% in May on the back of higher rents, gas and food prices, pushing the rate of U.S. inflation to a 40-year high of 8.6% and making it harder for Americans to afford everyday staples.

The increase in the consumer price index in May was more than triple the gain in the prior month. Economists polled by The Wall Street Journal had forecast a 0.7% advance.

The increase in inflation over the past year moved up to 8.6% from 8.3%, a new cycle high. The last time inflation rose as rapidly was in 1981.

Biden Officials Ending International Travel COVID Testing Requirement

The Biden administration announced Friday that it is ending a requirement that international travelers test negative for the coronavirus before coming to the United States.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “has determined based on the science and data that this requirement is no longer necessary at this time,” a senior administration official said.

The requirement ends at 12:01 a.m. Sunday.

Some experts had noted that the requirement did not seem to be serving much purpose, given that COVID-19 is already circulating widely within the United States…

Chicago Rapper FBG Cash Killed in South Side Shooting, Police Say

The 31-year-old musician, whose real name is Tristian Hamilton, was in a car when another vehicle pulled up and a gunman got out and opened fire, according to investigators.

Doctors Suing Food and Drug Administration Over Ivermectin

Authored by Alice Giordano via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours)

A Washington law firm has filed a federal lawsuit against the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for interfering with the use of ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19.

The lawsuit was filed by Boyden Gray & Associates on behalf of three doctors who were disciplined for prescribing human-grade ivermectin to patients.

The firm’s founder, attorney Boyden Gray, is a former legal adviser to the Reagan and Bush administrations.

Gray told The Epoch Times that the FDA had violated well-established law that allows doctors to prescribe an FDA-approved drug as an off-label treatment.

Ivermectin was no different, he said. It was approved by the FDA in 1966.

How Critical Race Theory Creeps Into Judicial Opinions

President Joe Biden’s nominee for a federal judgeship in New York, Natasha Merle, made headlines recently because of her past statements about white supremacy and systemic racism. There is good reason to believe that, despite her claims to the contrary, she will inject controversial and factually inaccurate ideas into her work as a judge. It’s been done before.

In earlier speeches, Merle claimed that voter ID laws, President Donald Trump’s ban on immigration from countries with high terrorism rates and a proposed border wall are all “grounded in white supremacy.”

For many Democrats, this is just the default thing to say about any policy they dislike, but some really believe it. Merle seems to fall into the latter category.

Judge Tosses Order That Limited Protests Outside Hudson Officials’ Homes

A Superior Court Judge has dismissed a lawsuit Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise filed against a group of activists and voided a restraining order that had severely restricted when the group could protest outside DeGise’s home.

The order, issued in December 2020, limited protests to a single hour every two weeks, barred more than 10 people from demonstrating, and restricted where such demonstrations could be held. Protesters gathered outside DeGise’s home and the homes of some county commissioners to protest since-abandoned contracts Hudson had with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to house immigrant detainees in the county’s jail.

The judge’s move comes as politicians in New Jersey and nationwide have expressed more alarm about activists staging protests outside officials’ private residences.

Man Gets 40 Months for Starting Fire During Kenosha Protest

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A federal judge has sentenced a Racine man to 40 months in prison for starting a fire that destroyed a furniture store during protests over a police shooting in Kenosha in 2020.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that U.S. District Judge J.P. Stadtmueller sentenced 23-year-old Devon Vaughn on Thursday. Vaughn pleaded guilty in March to conspiring to commit arson. His attorney, Joshua Uller, said Vaughn acted “entirely out of his character.”

The judge noted the Aug. 24 fire at B&L Office Furniture caused nearly $2 million in damage and deeply frightened the family of Linda Carpenter, who started the business with her husband more than 40 years ago.

The U.S. Department of Defense released a fact sheet divulging its support for biological research facilities in Ukraine, revealing on Thursday the exact number of biological facilities it has supported in the country in the document.

When details about America’s participation in biological research facilities in Ukraine first surfaced during a Senate hearing with Under Secretary of Defense Victoria Nuland, as detailed by Rebel News, the legacy media was quick to downplay America’s involvement in biological research in the region, accusing anyone speaking about it online of being a conspiracy theorist.

The United States accused both the Russian and Chinese governments of spreading disinformation about the subject.

‘Under Attack’: U of Calgary Report Claims Canadian Social Media Flooded With ‘Pro-Russian’ Disinformation

On last night’s episode of the Ezra Levant Show, we discussed a new report from the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy that claims Canadian social media is ‘under attack’ from specifically pro-Russian disinformation campaigns.

While it is clear that in times of war, propaganda campaigns are typically utilized by all sides, the narrow focus of this report on pro-Russian disinformation signals the highly political nature of the findings.

As discussed, the report focuses primarily on amplifying the problems with ‘disinformation’ from pro-Russian sources, but seemingly fails to fully appreciate the scope of NATO’s or Ukraine’s own propaganda efforts.

“Those talks do not lead to anything,” said Duda, adding that they legitimize Putin, who is responsible for the Russian army’s crimes in Ukraine.

Hardline Muslims Should Not Dictate What Films We Can Watch in Britain, Says Patrick Christys

We need to stop giving in to mob rule. We need to stop worrying about offending a particularly hardline element of the Muslim community, put our foot down and say enough is enough.

There have been huge protests outside Cineworld cinemas in Bradford, Bolton, Birmingham and Sheffield by some Muslim, mostly, men from what I can see.

Why? Because there was a film called The Lady of Heaven that is about the Prophet Muhammad’s daughter — it depicts her and apparently the Prophet Muhammed as well.

The film has now been pulled because Cineworld was afraid that these protests were threatening the safety of their staff.

Caroline Glick: How to Kill a Democracy

Israeli democracy is hanging by a thread. That is the lesson from Monday’s testimony by prosecution witness and former Communications Ministry Director General Shlomo Filber at former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ongoing corruption trial. Filber revealed that Netanyahu is not alone in the dock. Israel’s democracy is also on trial.

Benjamin Netanyahu is being tried for bribery and breach of trust. His co-defendants are two media moguls — Yediot Aharonot owner and publisher Arnon Moses, and former owner and publisher of Walla News website (and Bezeq telecommunications company) Shaul Alovich. The “crimes” they are accused of all relate to their desire to give voice — or consider giving voice — to positions and information ignored and silenced by the establishment media.

Filber explained, “The media has a leftist bias. The reason Netanyahu took the communications portfolio [in addition to the premiership] was to vary the opinions, so that right-wing voters would have media organs that expressed their views.”

Filber added, “Netanyahu’s desire to solve the distortion in the media market burned inside him. It was more important to him ideologically than running the country. He believed that the leftist bias in the media prevented the political right from truly governing.”

Filber’s statement came after months of testimony by nearly twenty prosecution witnesses including himself. One by one, they have obliterated the prosecution’s case against Netanyahu. After years of an aggressive investigation, by 2018 the prosecution had nothing other than a few cigars from Netanyahu’s rich friend with which to indict him. Rather than call it a day, the prosecutors decided to reinvent the bribery statute for the purpose of indicting the sitting prime minister. Netanyahu had received no monetary reward from anyone. So they decided that for their purposes, they would define positive media coverage as a form of bribery, and then accuse Netanyahu of receiving a bribe in the form of positive coverage from Alovich’s Walla News in exchange for regulatory favors to Alovich-owned Bezeq. And they indicted Alovich of bribing Netanyahu with positive coverage.

The only problem was that even before they filed their indictments, it had already been amply demonstrated that as is the case in every other establishment media outlet in Israel, Netanyahu received hostile coverage from Walla News.

So the prosecutors changed the statute again. They determined that a media outlet that provides “unusual responsiveness” to a politician, is bribing that politician, (at least if his name is Benjamin Netanyahu)……

Former US NATO Policy Planner Urges Ukraine to Cut a Deal

There has been a recent rise in voices in the US advising a negotiated settlement to the Ukraine war — positioning themselves against the Kiev government, which is clinging to continued fighting despite mounting casualties.

American intelligence agencies recently complained that they have too little information about Ukraine’s operations.

Now a former top official in the US administration under Ronald Reagan, Hugh De Santis, has come forward with the assessment that Ukraine will not be able to win against Russia. The US must convince Kiev to negotiate with Moscow to end the conflict, said De Santis, who was responsible for planning NATO and arms control policy under former US President Reagan.

Russia-Ukraine War: What Happened Today (June 10)

As Friday draws to a close in Kyiv and in Moscow, here are the key developments of the day:

Between 100 and 200 Ukrainian troops are being killed on the front line every day, Ukraine’s senior presidential aide told the BBC. That’s double the combat toll previously estimated by Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, as battles for the country’s eastern regions grind into another week. Despite billions of dollars in military aid from the U.S. and European allies, Ukraine still says it’s outgunned by Russia, and Kyiv continues to plead for more weapons.

Concerns are growing about a possible cholera outbreak in the Russian-occupied city of Mariupol. The city’s mayor, now based outside Mariupol, said 20,000 civilians may have died in Russia’s siege of the southern port city, and corpses have been contaminating the wells. The British Defense Ministry said medical services in Mariupol are near collapse, as Russia struggles to provide public services in occupied areas.

British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace met with Zelenskyy in Kyiv, and pledged to continue supporting Ukraine with military and other aid. The United Kingdom is also pushing for the release of two British nationals convicted of “mercenary activities” and sentenced to death by a court in the pro-Russian separatist Donetsk region. British officials said they were working with Kyiv to secure the soldiers’ release.

Russia’s central bank cut its interest rates to their prewar level, citing slowing inflation. The bank chopped its key rate to 9.5%, more than Western economists had expected, as Russia eases back from the 20% emergency rate hike when the war began and Western sanctions followed. Bank Governor Elvira Nabiullina said the effect of sanctions so far has been “less acute” than feared, though she acknowledged they haven’t reached their full effect.

Another Stress Test for Hungary’s Borders

In response to the mass immigration to Central Europe in 2015/16, which was the fault of the then Chancellor Merkel, the Hungarian government immediately began fortifying the country’s borders at the time. Today, Hungary’s borders with non-EU countries are secured throughout with massive wire fences.

This is currently paying off, as the Hungarian borders are also being increasingly put to the test by illegals again these weeks. From Friday to Sunday alone, police and soldiers took action against 1572 illegal border crossers, the national police headquarters announced. In cooperation with Czech colleagues, 64 illegals were arrested on the outskirts of Szeged on Sunday evening alone, who identified themselves as Syrians during the check.

  1. FROM KRETINOSTAN

    A woman who plays hot-ball in her spare time is fined SEK 6,500 for transporting her bat in her car. The police, prosecutors and the court say this is a violation of the law.

    The woman, who lives in Värnamo, was stopped in one of the police’s routine checks when she was driving a car. The police patrol discovered that the woman had a fireball bat in her car. A serious breach of the law, they thought, and drew up a report.

    The law referred to was the Law on the Prohibition of Knives and Other Dangerous Objects, commonly known as the “Knife Law”. The law is controversial as it causes problems for many citizens who have perfectly legitimate reasons for carrying a knife. Exemptions exist for craftsmen, among others, but are granted restrictively.

    In addition to knives, the ban also covers swords, sabres, clubs, throwing sticks and karate chopsticks, among other things. As far as Samnytt knows, the equipment of hot-ball enthusiasts has not previously been ruled unlawful under this law.

    However, in the case in question, the woman’s reference to her previous experience of playing brandy ball did not help. Police, prosecutors and the court agree that she committed a crime and should be punished for it. The penalty is a fine of SEK 6 500.

    Unclear whether hockey sticks and tennis rackets are allowed
    The court says she should be convicted of a crime because she first joked with the police officers who stopped her that she had a bat in her car to defend herself against wrongdoers. It cannot be ruled out that the woman was serious, prosecutors and later the court said.

    It is unclear what consequences the verdict will have for other fireball enthusiasts in the country. Questions have also arisen as to whether other similar sports equipment may be illegal to transport, such as hockey sticks and tennis rackets.

    Sweden is an anarcho-tyrannical society.
    Samnytt has previously drawn attention to what many consider to be the “anarcho-tyrannical” development of the Swedish rule of law in recent times, where the judiciary, unable to deal with serious crime, instead signals its ability to act by cracking down unjustifiably on petty crime.

    Benefit cheating M-top’s fire speech against benefit cheating

    Published 11 June 2022 at 13.15 in Fria Tider

    Member of Parliament Helena Bouveng (M) has cheated herself out of 390,000 SEK in benefits by being a fake registered in Vetlanda, in violation of the Population Registration Act.

    But shortly before she was exposed by Uppdrag Granskning, she gave a firebrand speech against immigrants who cheat on their national registration to get benefits, a video on the Riksdag’s website shows. https://youtu.be/KJ3p6mwxMlU

    – In today’s Sweden, it is highly unclear how many people are in our country. The Swedish Tax Agency estimates that around 200,000 people are registered at incorrect addresses in Sweden, Helena Bouveng (M) thundered in a sharply worded speech.

    – Criminals are currently using false addresses to obtain subsidies and welfare benefits to which they are not really entitled, the politician continued, in her speech on 27 April 2022.

    But five weeks later, SVT’s Uppdrag Granskning revealed that Helena Bouveng herself had cheated herself out of SEK 390,000 in allowances and accommodation costs from the Riksdag administration by being registered in Vetlanda even though she actually lives on Värmdö in Stockholm.

    However, she claims that the fact that she has told Värmdö municipality that she and her husband live there is “a small mistake”.

    – I’m not very good at this, she says.
