A Biden Tax Hike Kicked in That Affects Everything From Soap to Lightbulbs

An excise tax hike on household items that was buried in President Joe Biden’s $1 trillion infrastructure package last year went into effect on July 1, according to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

A roughly $13 billion tax increase on 42 chemicals, metallic elements and critical minerals was included in Biden’s Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Common household items like rubber, soap, concrete, plastics, lightbulbs and electronics will be impacted…

The tax impacts Americans who import, produce or manufacture qualified chemicals, Bloomberg Law reported…

“The fake infrastructure bill was drafted to raise taxes on and kill jobs in Louisiana specifically,” Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy said last year upon introducing a bill with other Republicans to eliminate the Superfund taxes. “Its Superfund Tax will increase taxes on our petrochemical industry by $1.3 billion, and that’s going to endanger good jobs at a time when inflation is already ravaging Louisiana families.”

Hungary Makes Surprise Hike of One-Week Deposit Rate to Prop Up Currency

In order to prop up the country’s embattled currency, the National Bank of Hungary (MNB) increased its one-week deposit rate by 200 basis points to 9.75 percent on Thursday, surprising markets but lending much needed support to the forint.

“In accordance with the strategy defined in June, the Monetary Council considers it necessary that the increase in the one-week deposit interest rate be integrated into the base rate hike cycle as soon as possible,” the MNB said in a statement.

The MNB traditionally holds meetings of its Monetary Council twice a month, where interest rates and monetary policy changes are announced. At its last meeting on June 28, the MNB raised its base overnight deposit rate by 185 basis points to 7.75 percent, the highest rate hike since October 2008.

Strong Jobs Report Prompts Speculation of Further Interest Rate Hikes

The announcement of stronger-than-expected jobs figures on Friday has prompted speculation that the Federal Reserve will continue imposing interest rate hikes as it seeks to curb record inflation.

The U.S. economy added 372,000 jobs in June, significantly outperforming economist projections of 250,000 new jobs, while the unemployment rate held steady at 3.6%, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Despite strong employment figures, the economy continues to struggle with inflation. The Consumer Price Index for May showed an annualized 8.6% increase over the year before. The average price of gas, meanwhile, rose above $5 per gallon for the first time in U.S. history in early June.

U.S. Housing Affordability at Lowest Level Since 2006

As the U.S. grapples with rising gas prices, American housing it witnessing a similar spike in pricing, barring many from becoming homeowners amid the nation’s other economic woes.

The National Association of Realtors announced Friday that its housing-affordability index had fallen to 102.5 in May, marking the lowest figure for the index since July 2006 when it stood at 100.5, the Wall Street Journal reported. The plunge brought the index near the July 1990 low of 100.2 as well.

Mortgage payments rose to an average $1,842 in May from $1,297 in January, assuming a 30-year mortgage and 20% down payment, according to the Journal.

The outlet further noted that active listings declined 34% in June from the same time in 2020 and witnessed a 53% drop from June 2019.

2 Iowa Officers Sue 2020 Protesters, Accuse Them of Assault

Two Iowa police officers are taking the unusual move of suing six people who participated in a 2020 protest in Des Moines after the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd, accusing them of assault.

All six people were arrested during the July 1, 2020, protest, and five already pleaded guilty to misdemeanor counts of assault on a police officer and/or interference with official acts. One of them, Indira Sheumaker, was later elected to the Des Moines City Council.

The lawsuit, first reported by Axios Des Moines, was filed by Peter Wilson and Jeffrey George as individuals and not as representatives of the Des Moines Police Department. They are seeking an unspecified amount for actual and punitive damages.

A New Executive Order Aims to Preserve Abortion Access, But Its Reach is Limited

President Biden will sign an executive order to take some incremental steps to try to preserve access to abortion services after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade two weeks ago.

At least nine states have banned abortion so far — including Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, West Virginia and Wisconsin. A dozen more states are expected to prohibit or restrict the procedure in the coming weeks.

The executive order, which Biden is expected to sign on Friday, pledges to ensure the safety of abortion patients and providers, including setting up mobile clinics near the borders of states restricting abortion access. It also seeks to convene private, pro bono lawyers to offer support to people crossing state lines to get an abortion.

Another part of the order directs the secretary of Health and Human Services to issue a report in the next 30 days outlining additional actions to protect medication abortion, expand access on emergency contraception and IUDs, and increase public education around reproductive rights…

Biden’s HHS Funds Study to Understand Why Children View ‘White Males as Default People’

New York University has received a $40,000 grant from Joe Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services to study why children have come to view “white males as default people.”

The project, as detailed by the grant summary on USASpending.gov, is titled “Societal assumptions regarding typical personhood and their effects on reasoning“ and seeks to research the developmental processes of children, by which they “acquire the belief that White males represent the default person — a pattern rooted in the ideologies of androcentrism (centering the experiences of men) and ethnocentrism (centering the experiences of White people) prevalent in the United States.”

The project, which runs for three years, began in February and ends on Jan. 31, 2025.

Space X and Tesla CEO Elon Musk has reportedly terminated his deal to buy Twitter. The billionaire reportedly sent a letter to terminate the deal on Friday.

Chicago’s Holiday Weekend Death Toll Was Higher Than the Mass Shooting on the 4th and Residents Wonder Why No One Cares

We’ve all followed the story of the mass shooting that took place in Highland Park on the 4th of July. Suspect Robert Crimo has been arrested and charged with seven counts of murder. His social media history and motives are still being argued over even as tributes to his victims are being published.

The focus on one shocking act of violence is understandable but the city of Chicago saw many acts of violence over the July 4th weekend. In fact, more people were shot and killed over the 3-day weekend than died in the mass shooting in Highland Park. Local residents wonder why the violence they see every day doesn’t seem to attract much attention or resources.

Elon Musk Says He’s Terminating Twitter Deal, Board to Fight

Elon Musk announced he will walk away from his tumultuous $44 billion offer to buy Twitter, leaving the deal on the verge of collapse. The Tesla CEO sent a letter to Twitter’s board Friday saying he is terminating the acquisition.

But Twitter isn’t accepting Musk’s declaration.

We are confident we will prevail in the Delaware Court of Chancery.”

FBI Intimidate North Dakota Woman Who Quoted Declaration of Independence in Objection to Chinese Takeover of Corn Mill

Grand Forks police and the FBI on Thursday visited the home of Jodi Carlson, a leading opponent of a new corn mill to be owned by the China-based Fufeng Group, following up on a social media post quoting the Declaration of Independence that mentioned the overthrow of the government.

The authorities ultimately found no cause for concern, a police report states.

The incident has provoked an angry response from opponents of the corn mill project, many of whom are part of the “Concerned Citizens of Fufeng Project in Grand Forks” group where the activity took place.

“This is a group that is fighting against government overreach, and promoting the voices of the people who live in the community,” Carlson later wrote in a post to the group. “We are not here to be censored, nor harassed by the local police department.”

Twice as Many Vaccine Deaths as COVID Deaths in U.S. Households, Poll Finds

More than twice as many Americans have lost a household member to a Covid vaccine injury as have lost one to Covid.

That’s the shocking finding of a new poll of 1,500 Americans carried out by the polling company Pollfish.

While 3.6% of respondents said someone in their household had died from COVID-19, 7.9% said one had died as a result of Covid vaccination.

The poll also found that 8.5% said they had been injured by their vaccination, 5% that they had sought medical help and 3.3% that they had been hospitalised, the same proportion who said that as a result of vaccination they were no longer able to work a full day or at all. These are percentages of all respondents. If we look only at the 74.3% vaccinated with at least one dose then the figures, as a proportion of vaccinated persons, are 11.5% injured, 6.8% needing medical help, 4.5% hospitalised and 4.5% unable to work.

The moment when he knelt, touched the monument, and wept will be in the history books of this nation and was undoubtedly seared into the minds of many in attendance and many watching at home.

Though Topp has shied away from the comparison, for many his actions brought to mind another Canadian hero, Terry Fox.

EU Will be Held Responsible for Starving the World — Billionaire

Sanctions imposed on Russian and Belarusian fertilizer producers are akin to weapons of mass destruction in the scale of the damage they will likely cause over the next few years, the founder of chemical giant EuroChem has claimed.

“The EU sanctions mean suffering, famine and migration flows for many hundreds of millions of people,” Andrey Melnichenko said in an interview with the Swiss newspaper Die Weltwoche on Thursday.

“Sanctions targeting food and energy are economic weapons of mass destruction. They hit innocent people the worst. I have no doubt that billions of people will feel its effects,” he warned.

Suffering people will want to hold those responsible accountable, and the EU won’t be able to shift its culpability, the businessman added.

Residents have already been informed that they will face huge spikes in heating bills as a result of Germany being forced to respond to Russia restricting supplies via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline.

‘Without Hungary, Europe Would Already be Lost, ‘ Says Austrian MEP

Europe is more concerned with gender ideology and the welfare of illegal immigrants than the issues of its own citizens, Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ) MEP Harald Vilimsky told Hungarian daily Magyar Hirlap in an interview.

“We are facing an increasingly ideological EU that cares more about gender ideology and the welfare of illegal immigrants than its own citizens. We also have to face a huge economic and energy crisis, for which the European Union only offers its green propaganda as an answer, but this does not pay citizens’ bills and does not keep the heat on in the winter,” Vilimsky said.

Ukraine War Round-Up: Russia Jails Critic, US Trains Fighters

Russia has handed down what is believed to be the first full jail term to somebody for criticising the war in Ukraine.

Alexei Gorinov, a Moscow councillor, was jailed for seven years after he was filmed speaking out against the invasion in a city council meeting.

Under the post-invasion law, anyone who spreads “fake news” about the military faces up to 15 years in jail.

In eastern Ukraine, there were reports of shelling by both sides. The governor of Luhansk said Russian forces had indiscriminately bombarded populated areas, while separatist authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) said that they evacuated some residents from the town of Shakhtarsk after shelling by Ukrainian troops.

Sri Lanka Imposes Curfew as Cops Fire Tear Gas at Protesters

COLOMBO — Police imposed a curfew in Sri Lanka’s capital and surrounding areas on Friday, a day before a planned protest demanding the resignations of the country’s president and prime minister because of the economic crisis that has caused severe shortages of essential goods and disrupted people’s livelihoods.

Hours before the curfew announcement, police fired tear gas and water cannons to disperse thousands of protesting students wearing black clothes, holding black flags, shouting anti-government slogans and carrying banners saying “Enough — now go.”

The protesters and other critics have said that President Gotabaya Rajapaksa is responsible for the economic crisis, the worst since the country’s independence in 1948. They also blame Ranil Wickremesinghe, who became prime minister two months ago, for not delivering on promises to end the shortages.

Assassination of Japan’s Shinzo Abe Stuns World Leaders

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Friday’s shocking assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in one of the world’s safest countries stunned leaders and drew condemnation, with Iran calling it an “act of terrorism” while European leaders slammed the “despicable” attack.

Tributes poured in as governments expressed sorrow and solidarity with Japan over the loss of Abe, who was Japan’s longest-serving leader before stepping down in 2020 for health reasons.

Abe, 67, was shot from behind in Nara in western Japan while giving a campaign speech. He was airlifted to a hospital and later pronounced dead.

U.S. President Joe Biden said he was “stunned, outraged, and deeply saddened” and offered his condolences to Abe’s family…

Does Assassination of Shinzo Abe Signal Strategic Shift for Japan?

Abe Shinzo, Japan’s longest-serving prime minister, was assassinated during a campaign speech on Friday. Abe had continued to exert political influence, heading a powerful faction of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party. Under Abe, Tokyo had faced considerable US pressure to end almost a decade of outreach to Russia.

It seems increasingly clear that more than any particular policy achievement, Abe’s greatest legacy was a more substantial global leadership for Japan and peace with Russia and China.

One focus of Abe’s foreign policy was to secure a treaty with Russia on their territorial dispute. Abe had pursued this initiative even after some of his closest foreign policy advisers tried to scupper his efforts. The operation in Ukraine gave current PM Kishida Fumio room to join US sanctions targeting Moscow — marking a changed course from Abe’s foreign policy legacy.

Fmr PM Abe Assassinated With ‘Improvised Handgun’ in ‘Gun Free Japan’

Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is showing no vital signs after being shot from behind with an improvised double-barrel handgun during a speech in Nara, Japan.

Abe, who served two terms as prime minister of Japan and remained hugely influential in global politics, has suffered from cardiac arrest after being taken to the hospital, according to police and fire officials, reports Kyodo News.

The 67-year-old was shot from approximately 10 feet away. The suspect, 41-year-old Yamagami Tatsuya, did not attempt to flee, but reportedly crouched down after firing two shots and stayed on the scene until his arrest on an attempted murder charge.

Japan has some of the strictest gun laws in the world, with almost zero tolerance for personal ownership of firearms.

Shinzo Abe was a critic of the New World Order and was re-elected for a rare second term in 2012 with a mandate to defend his country from the Chinese Communist Party and their friends in the highest echelons of the United Nations.

Abe was never afraid of speaking his mind, recently criticizing the Western response to the war in Ukraine, pointing out that Ukraine Prime Minister Zelensky was responsible for the conflict.

Japan’s Ex-Leader Shinzo Abe Assassinated During Speech

NARA, Japan (AP) — Former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was assassinated Friday on a street in western Japan by a gunman who opened fire on him from behind as he delivered a campaign speech — an attack that stunned a nation with some of the strictest gun control laws anywhere.

The 67-year-old Abe, who was Japan’s longest-serving leader when he resigned in 2020, collapsed bleeding and was airlifted to a nearby hospital in Nara, although he was not breathing and his heart had stopped. He was later pronounced dead after receiving massive blood transfusions, officials said.

Nara Medical University emergency department chief Hidetada Fukushima said Abe suffered major damage to his heart, along with two neck wounds that damaged an artery. He never regained his vital signs, Fukushima said.

Police at the shooting scene arrested Tetsuya Yamagami, 41, a former member of Japan’s navy, on suspicion of murder. Police said he used a gun that was obviously homemade — about 15 inches (40 centimeters) long — and they confiscated similar weapons and his personal computer when they raided his nearby one-room apartment.

Maybe This is Why They’re Pushing Eating Bugs: UN Praises World Hunger as Way to Benefit Globalists

The United Nations was caught quietly scrubbing an article in which they admitted world hunger was a necessary evil in implementing the WEF’s ‘Great Reset’ agenda.

It’s 2008 op-ed, “The Benefits of World Hunger”, was quickly deleted hours after the article was discovered by internet sleuths this week.

In the op-ed, the UN touts the “benefits of world hunger:”

“We sometimes talk about hunger in the world as if it were a scourge that all of us want to see abolished, viewing it as comparable with the plague or aids. But that naïve view prevents us from coming to grips with what causes and sustains hunger. Hunger has great positive value to many people… For those who depend on the availability of cheap labour, hunger is the foundation of their wealth.

No one works harder than hungry people. Yes, people who are well nourished have greater capacity for productive physical activity, but well-nourished people are far less willing to do that work… For those of us at the high end of the social ladder, ending hunger globally would be a disaster… Who would clean our toilets? … For many of us, hunger is not a problem, but an asset.”

“We sometimes talk about hunger in the world as if it were a scourge that all of us want to see abolished,” wrote the author, Professor George Kent from the University of Hawaii.

Kent added that hunger was actually, “A great positive value to many people. Indeed, it is fundamental to the working of the world’s economy. Hungry people are the most productive people, especially where there is a need for manual labour.”

    Now I would also like to receive a 40,000 Dollars to study why the tiger cats stick together, why they don’t mind the black and brown spotted white cat, but why the little black tomcat has the hardest time of them all, because the tiger cats don’t want him eating from the same bowl when there is not enough food?
