Silicon Valley Bank: The Woke Democrat Cesspool Is Deep And Wide

By The Daily Skirmish – Liberato.US

We’re learning new details about just how big a Woke Democrat cesspool Silicon Valley Bank really was.

The Bank’s political action committee donated primarily to Democrats for 20 years.  One hundred percent of the PAC’s donations went to Democrats in 2020, as well as in 2021-2022.  Last year, the PAC donated to Senators Chuck Schumer and Mark Warner, as well as other Democrat lawmakers.  Chuck Schumer and Maxine Waters said they would return the donations to the PAC or give them to charity.

California’s Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom and his wife were closely tied to the Bank.  In 2021, the Bank gave the Newsom’s nonprofit – California Partners Project – $100,000 at the request, suggestion, or solicitation of Gavin Newsom.  The president of SVB’s investment banking arm was a founding board member of the Newsom nonprofit, so the ties go way back.  That president is still on the nonprofit’s board.  The $100,000 gift was to support the nonprofit’s campaign for California’s gender quota law for corporate boards, a Woke cause if ever there was one.  The Bank tweeted in support of the nonprofit’s effort and proclaimed the Bank and the nonprofit were aligned on getting more women in the boardroom.  The law was later struck down as discriminatory, completely unconstitutional.  No word on whether the Newsoms will return the gift.

The Bank supported another Woke cause, the trained Marxists of Black Lives Matter.  This wasn’t just a pittance – the Bank gave over $70 million dollars to promote the burning of American cities in the summer of 2020, the destruction of the nuclear family as openly declared on BLM’s website, and the promotion of world communism through the global network of offices BLM opened with the generous financial support of Silicon Valley Bank and corporate America.  Black Lives Matter called the report about the $70 million “white supremacy” and distanced itself from the Bank saying it’s just run by “white people”.  Oh, and it also said ending the “gruesome exploitation” of black people will stop further bank failures.  Sure, and I’m the tooth fairy.

The Bank also pledged $5 billion dollars to fund green energy companies.  The Bank’s depositors were bailed out.  Critics called this a “gift to wealthy Democrat donors in the tech sector.”  The critics said there is no way depositors would have been made whole if they had been MAGA Republicans.  The critics also note the Democrat depositors could have purchased additional deposit insurance beyond the FDIC’s $250,000 limit on their own, but chose not to.  Evidently, being in tight with ruling Democrats WAS the insurance plan.  It’s also been noted Chinese firms are among the depositors being bailed out, something Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has confirmed.  One Chinese company had $175 million in uninsured cash deposits at the Bank, which was just fine with the Democrats who ran the place, which will now be underwritten by higher fees imposed on all American banks for the federal deposit insurance program going forward.

SVB’s board was populated with dyed-in-the-wool Democrats – Hillary, Biden, Obama donors and only one had investment banking experience.  All you needed for the job was to be a good Democrat and to check the right diversity boxes.  What could possibly go wrong?  One board member went to a Shinto shrine to pray after Trump was elected, to get over her grief and shock after Hillary’s defeat.  The Bank crowed it had women, one black, one LGBTQ, and two veterans on the board – check, check, check, and double check.

The Bank’s alignment with Democrats was grand strategy.  “Everyone knew it was the go-to bank for woke CEOs,” one source told the New York Post. “They knew they were aligned politically. The companies SVB loaned money to all had a woke agenda,” the source said.  I can’t wait for one of them to say the strategy is still a perfectly good idea, it just wasn’t implemented correctly at SVB.  ‘We are the ones we’ve been waiting for, so we’ll do it better the next time.’  Isn’t that what they always say about socialism which has failed everywhere it’s been tried?

But that’s the Democrats, for you – corrupt to the core and congenitally unable to align with reality.  Tell me again why they deserve to govern?

Silicon Valley Bank Parent Company Files For Bankruptcy

By The Daily Caller

SVB Financial Group, the parent company for California tech lender Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in New York Friday, the biggest filing of its kind since Washington Mutual Inc. in 2008.

SVB, which was SVB Financial Group’s main business, was taken over by federal regulators after it collapsed due to a bank run last week, with the Federal Reserve intervening to insure depositors. The bank announced it was filing for bankruptcy Friday in a bid to preserve the value of its assets.

“The Chapter 11 process will allow SVB Financial Group to preserve value as it evaluates strategic alternatives for its prized businesses and assets, especially SVB Capital and SVB Securities,” William Kosturos, Chief Restructuring Officer for SVB Financial Group, said in a statement. “SVB Capital and SVB Securities continue to operate and serve clients, led by their longstanding and independent leadership teams.”

SVB is under the jurisdiction of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and not included in the Chapter 11 filing, according to The Washington Post. Bankruptcy offers a court-supervised reorganization to assist SVB Financial Group to find buyers for its assets besides SVB because it is under federal control, according to Reuters.

The ESG Pushback Is On! thumbnail

The ESG Pushback Is On!

By Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

ESG, or “Environmental, Social and Governance” investing, is a pernicious left-wing tactic designed to achieve policy goals that cannot pass legislatures by distorting investment decisions.

ESG represents not only a sneaky false flag means of forcing policy decisions, but a real threat to investors large and small.

ESG may have already contributed to the insolvency of Silicon Valley Bank, which carried a portfolio high in investments made, not for the likelihood of achieving solid returns, but to curry favor with the “woke” mob.

Here are three points I made during my testimony at a North Dakota Senate hearing this week (full submission at that apply equally to every state:

  • ESG is not concerned with advancing the economic interests of North Dakotans. Instead, it is a top-down, elitist inspired effort reflecting the interests and priorities of multibillionaires and internationalists.
  • ESG is random with its ratings, it’s not applied fairly, and it empowers America’s adversaries – notably China.
  • It simply doesn’t work. ESG investing is not getting the returns it promised investors, nor is it changing the world for the better. In fact, it’s doing the opposite!

Governor Ron DeSantis announced legislation to protect Floridians from ESG which he stated “builds on my commitment to protect consumers’ investments and their ability to access financial services in the Free State of Florida,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “By applying arbitrary ESG financial metrics that serve no one except the companies that created them, elites are circumventing the ballot box to implement a radical ideological agenda. Through this legislation, we will protect the investments of Floridians and the ability of Floridians to participate in the economy.”

“We will not stand idly by as the stability of our country’s economy is threatened by woke executives who put their political agenda ahead of their clients’ finances,” DeSantis said.

The Washington Examiner reports that DeSantis will form an anti-ESG alliance “with Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming.”

These states are expected, in addition to other measures, to forbid their pension funds from abandoning sound business practice in pursuit of ESG.

The life savings of pensioners, and every one of us engaged in “the pursuit of happiness” in America, are not fair game for left-wing social engineering.

Thousands of Schools Won’t Tell Parents About Kids’ Gender Transition: Report thumbnail

Thousands of Schools Won’t Tell Parents About Kids’ Gender Transition: Report

By Family Research Council

More than 5,000 schools across the nation allow teachers to hide a child’s decision to identify as a member of the opposite sex from the child’s parents. The parental exclusion policy — which is heavily advocated by LGBT lobbying groups and applies to more than 3.2 million children nationally — has already resulted in the sexual trafficking of at least one young girl.

A total of 5,904 schools in 168 school districts nationwide allow, or require, teachers to conceal children’s transgender “social transition” — in which children change their name or preferred pronouns, or begin using the locker rooms of the opposite sex — from their parents. School districts keeping legal guardians ignorant about their children’s life-altering decisions stretch from Portland, Maine, to Portland, Oregon, and from Alaska to Arizona.

“This investigation shows that parental exclusion policies are a problem from coast-to-coast — and that living in a red state doesn’t mean that families are automatically shielded from this issue,” said Nicole Neily, president of Parents Defending Education (PDE), which compiled the list. PDE discovered four districts in deep-red Kansas that have adopted the policy, crafted by LGBT activists. For example, Wichita Public Schools’ teacher training claims, “The lack of using [a child’s preferred] pronouns could lead to death.”

In all, PDE reports, such policies affect 3,268,752 students — and their parents — in 28 states and the District of Columbia.

“This list is not comprehensive,” the report notes.

A Virginia high school’s decision to conceal a teenage girl’s gender transition ended with the teen being drugged, gang-raped and, on two separate occasions, sexually trafficked. In August 2021, 14-year-old Sage began attending Appomattox County High School. Her biological grandmother, Michele, who legally adopted her, said Sage told her “all the girls there were bi, trans, lesbian, emo,” and Sage soon decided she “wanted to wear boys’ clothes.” But Michele added, Sage told school officials “she was now a boy named Draco with male pronouns. Sage asked the school not to tell me, and they did not tell me.”

After a group of boys accosted and threatened to rape her in the boys’ restroom, Michele took Sage home and found a pass made out to “Draco.” Michele said Sage was too afraid to return to school, so she ran away to meet an online “friend,” who sexually trafficked her through Washington, D.C. and Maryland. By the time the FBI found her locked inside a room in Baltimore nine days later, Michele recalled, Sage had been “locked in a room, drugged, gang-raped, and brutalized by countless men.”

“One of the expert witnesses in the hearing [on January 30] confirms that online predators do target social media accounts of children who list themselves as ‘ftm’ or ‘female to male,’” Delegate David LaRock (R-Berryville) told The Daily Signal.

But Sage’s nightmare had only begun. A judge accused Michele and her husband of inflicting “emotional and physical abuse” by “misgendering” their granddaughter. The judge had Sage committed to the male section of a children’s home, where she was “repeatedly beaten” and “given street drugs,” Michele said. Sage ran away from the home, but the FBI found her in the grips of a sexual trafficking in Texas. Sage had again “been drugged, raped, beaten, and exploited.”

“Sage isn’t unique,” LaRock told “Washington Watch with Tony Perkins” on February 9, although “the degree to which she’s been violated is, hopefully, rare.”

Reports of schools allowing or encouraging minors to “socially transition” to another gender have trickled out, as outraged parents have taken legal action against the districts on PDE’s list. A coalition of parents sued Iowa’s Linn-Mar Community School District last summer. Last month, Amber Lavigne filed a lawsuit against the Great Salt Bay Community School in the coastal Maine village of Damariscotta — population 2,300 — after she found a chest binder in her 13-year-old daughter’s belongings. A social worker facilitated the child’s decision to identify as another gender, and the school withheld all information from her mother, according to her legal counsel. “The school never stopped trying to keep me in the dark at every turn, repeatedly stonewalling me when I tried to find out what was going on,” said an exasperated Lavigne, who is represented by the Goldwater Institute. “My parental rights aren’t up for debate: I deserve to know what’s happening to my child in school.”

“Counselors and teachers didn’t tell Sage’s family about the fact that she was transgender. And she got caught up in some horrific human trafficking issues, and they almost lost her,” Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin (R) told a CNN townhall last Wednesday. “There’s a basic rule here, which is that children belong to parents — not to the state, not to schools, not to bureaucrats, but to parents.”

Last September, Youngkin enacted model school guidelines that affirm, “School personnel shall keep parents fully informed about all matters that may be reasonably expected to be important to a parent.” Parents may “determine (a) what names, nicknames, and/or pronouns, if any, shall be used for their child by teachers and school staff while their child is at school, (b) whether their child engages in any counseling or social transition at school that encourages a gender that differs from their child’s sex, or (c) whether their child expresses a gender that differs with their child’s sex while at school,” the guidelines add.

Despite Youngkin’s actions, the report lists seven school districts in Virginia that continue to hide social transition from parents.

To remedy the situation, LaRock introduced “Sage’s Law” (H.B. 2432), which requires school officials to contact parents if a child begins using names or pronouns not consistent with his or her sex. The bill passed the House of Delegates on February 6 by a narrow 50-48, party-line vote. (Democratic Delegate Cliff Hayes also intended to vote no.) It is currently under Senate consideration.

The Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives is taking steps to assure no American parent is frozen out of his or her child’s life decisions. Last week, House Republicans advanced a measure barring any federally funded elementary or middle school from changing a “minor child’s gender markers, pronouns, or preferred name” on any school form, or allowing students to use the restrooms and changing facilities of the opposite sex. The House Education and the Workforce Committee adopted the measure — originally introduced as a separate bill, the Parental Rights Over the Education and Care of Their (PROTECT) Kids Act, by Rep. Tim Walberg (R-Mich.) — as an amendment to the Parents Bill of Rights (H.R. 5). Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) introduced a companion bill in the Senate (S. 200).

Walberg, an ordained pastor who once worked for the Moody Bible Institute, found it “unconscionable that some believe that parents should be kept in the dark regarding gender transitions of their own children. He urged Congress to “ensure that schools do not hide important information about children from their own parents,” “increase transparency, and defend the God-given authority and rights of parents.”

President Joe Biden is all but certain to veto such a bill. The president’s now-inactive nonprofit, the Biden Foundation, partnered with Gender Spectrum, a group whose “Gender Support Plan” tells schools to have “contingencies in place” if parents find out their child is “being supported” against their will. Since taking office, Biden has said transgenderism reflects “the image of God.”

You may see PDE’s incomplete list of the school districts that have adopted anti-parental rights transgender policies here. The group asks citizens to report such policies to PDE.

“Frighteningly, this only begins to scratch the surface of what is taking place behind closed doors in America’s schools,” said Neily. “Without a doubt, there are hundreds (if not thousands) of others with similar policies on the books.”

10 Things to Know about the Silicon Valley Bank Collapse thumbnail

10 Things to Know about the Silicon Valley Bank Collapse

By Family Research Council

This weekend was the most tumultuous for the banking sector since 2008, as an apparently prosperous, mid-sized bank completely collapsed. When the dust settled, federal regulators had taken over management of two banks while several others teetered on the brink.

Needless to say, the incident has deeply shaken Americans’ confidence in the banking industry. To complicate matters, most Americans are busy shuttling their kids to school and earning an honest day’s living (as they should be) — too busy to keep up with the cacophony of opinions firing around industry jargon amid rapidly developing facts. So, for those too gainfully employed to dig through the noise themselves, here are 10 things to know about the mini-crisis in the banking sector that occurred over the weekend.

1. Silicon Valley Bank exploded since 2020 to become the nation’s 16th largest bank.

As the name suggests, Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) was based in Santa Clara, California — otherwise known as Silicon Valley. It operated 17 branches in California and Massachusetts. This location, plus the bank’s startup friendly policies, meant that SVB was the bank of choice for many tech companies, particularly tech startups funded by venture capital, operating in Silicon Valley.

Over the past three years, SVB had more than tripled in size. It began January 2020 with $55 billion in deposits and ended December 2022 with $186 billion. Last week, it had $175 billion. Two factors contributed to its explosive growth. First, COVID lockdowns created a spike in demand for digital technologies, which is exactly what tech startups intend to provide. Second, trillions of dollars in irresponsible federal COVID spending left investors flush with cash to pour into tech startups. Most of the tech startups deposited their extra cash in SVB.

2. SVB over-invested in long-term public debt.

However, the dirt-cheap interest rates at the time made it hard for SVB to make all that dough rise. You’re likely aware that banks don’t bury your deposits in the ground like the worthless servant (Matthew 25:25-27); they lend most of it out again at interest, which is how banks stay in business. But SVB couldn’t lend all those billions of dollars out with everyone already flush with cash, so they opted instead to purchase long-term, U.S. government bonds and notes. SVB purchased $80 billion in 10-year U.S. Treasury notes, along with other public debt.

U.S. treasury notes, bills, and bonds are the primary way that the U.S. Treasury finances government deficit spending. These different securities (which differ from each other primarily in duration) are essentially IOUs that yield interest over time and can be redeemed at face value at a fixed future date. For instance, a 10-year Treasury note yields interest every six months and may be redeemed 10 years after it was issued. Once issued, these notes often change hands and are considered safe, reliable assets in an investment portfolio — which means they yield a low but certain return on investment.

Longer-term Treasury notes yield a higher return than shorter-term notes, due to uncertainty about future interest rates. For instance, when SVB was purchasing Treasury notes in 2020, 10-year notes were paying 1.5% interest, while short term notes were paying 0.25% interest. SVB opted to invest heavily in 10-year notes, which paid a higher yield.

Then, in 2022, the Federal Reserve jacked up interest rates to try and combat inflation. The Fed raised the target range for federal funds interest eight times in 12 months, from 0.00%-0.25% to 4.25%-4.50%. Suddenly, SVB’s 10-year loans paying 1.5% interest weren’t so lucrative anymore.

Around the same time, venture capital funding for tech startups dried up, and those companies (many of which take years to become profitable, if they ever do) began to draw on the funds they had stored up in SVB. To cover these withdrawals, SVB had to sell its long-term Treasury notes. But because market interest rates have risen, and the Treasury notes’ interest rate remains fixed, SVB couldn’t find a buyer willing to pay full price for the notes, and it had to sell $21 billion in assets at a loss of $1.8 billion.

3. SVB experienced an old-fashioned bank run.

Once it announced the losses, some investors smelled trouble and began to pull out even more money. Customers eventually withdrew an eye-popping $42 billion, a quarter of all deposits. In a new twist on an old-fashioned bank run, Silicon Valley Bank simply ran out of money to give customers on Friday, and had to shut its doors. SVB was the largest bank failure since Washington Mutual in 2008.

Andy Kessler, analyst with The Wall Street Journal, blamed SVB managers for making three critical mistakes: reaching for yield just before interest rates were set to rise, misreading its customers’ cash needs, and not selling equity to cover losses. “You’re really only allowed one mistake; more proved fatal,” he said.

In response to the bank failures of the Great Recession, Congress in 2010 passed legislation authorizing the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to insure “$250,000 per depositor, per insured bank” in case of collapse. (Congress created the FDIC in 1933, in response to the Great Depression, as part of FDR’s New Deal.) The goal was to eliminate or mitigate bank runs by creating a safety net to protect consumers.

However, most of SVB’s depositors (“something like 85% to 90%,” wrote The WSJ’s Editorial Board) had deposits that exceeded that threshold. That’s because most of SVB’s clients were companies or wealthy Silicon Valley types, and not ordinary Americans. The streaming company Roku, for example, had $487 million (26% of its cash) deposited in SVB. Unusually for a post-Great Recession bank, the vast majority of money deposited in SVB was not insured by the FDIC.

4. SVB run takes out Signature Bank, hits other banks hard.

SVB’s abrupt fall hit other medium-sized banks like a shock wave. The hardest hit was New York City-based Signature Bank, another medium-sized bank with many corporate clients above the FDIC insurance threshold. At the end of 2022, Signature had 40 locations and $88 billion deposits. But customers withdrew $10 billion from Signature on Friday, forcing the bank into the third largest bank closure in U.S. history.

Another bank to take a hit was First Republic, a San Francisco-based bank around the same size as SVB, which also had a high proportion of uninsured stocks. Its stock fell hard (as of this writing, it is down more than 60% in value) after it announced that it had gained access to $70 million in loans from the Federal Reserve and JPMorgan Chase. While the announcement likely means the bank will not fail, it also leaves investors wondering whether it was about to fail.

Bank stocks suffered across the board. The KBW NASDAQ index of commercial banks was down 11%, as even the largest, most secure banks took a hit. Some regional bank stocks like PacWest Bancorp, Zions Bancorp, and Comerica were down more than 20%. Many of the stocks grew so volatile that exchanges temporarily froze trading on them. The stock plunge could affect banks’ ability to raise money by selling shares, if they need to do so as a last resort.

5. Feds bail out all depositors, even those above insurance limit.

Federal regulators scrambled over the weekend to respond to the Friday collapse of SVB and Signature Bank. California and New York bank regulators placed SVB and Signature Bank, respectively, into receivership with the FDIC. The FDIC fired the previous executive teams and will essentially run the insolvent banks until it can find private buyers.

On Sunday, the Treasury Department, the Federal Reserve, and the FDIC issued a joint statement on the bank failures, announcing that they were “taking decisive actions to protect the U.S. economy by strengthening public confidence in our banking system.”

“Depositors will have access to all of their money starting Monday, March 13,” they promised, but “Shareholders and certain unsecured debtholders will not be protected.”

“No losses will be borne by the taxpayer,” the joint statement continued. “Any losses to the Deposit Insurance Fund to support uninsured depositors will be recovered by a special assessment on banks, as required by law.”

6. Federal response creates incentives for bad behavior.

This last declaration from the federal agencies amounts to the government taking money from banks that did not collapse, in order to pay off the uninsured deposits from the banks that did collapse. National Review’s Philip Klein wrote,

“Defenders of this decision will try to make it seem as if it’s an extraordinary, one-off decision by regulators, but in practice, it has created a huge moral hazard by signaling that the $250,000 FDIC limit on deposit insurance does not exist in practice. The clear signal it sends is that when financial institutions make poor decisions, the government will swoop in to clean up the mess.”

“Moral hazard” is an economic concept that describes how people will engage in riskier behavior if they are protected from the consequences.

7. Federal government compounds bad policymaking with more bad policymaking.

While SVB executives bear some of the blame for the bank’s sudden collapse, poor federal policymaking played a role, too.

COVID-era lockdowns and excessive deficit spending — including direct payments to individuals kept from working by government policy — helped to create the cash glut that led SVB to grow too big, too fast, with nowhere to reinvest its deposits. These panic-driven polices, which didn’t even make sense at the time, occurred in both 2020 and 2021, under both a Republican and a Democratic president, and many of the spending packages received bipartisan support.

This cash glut also caused inflation, which the Federal Reserve has tried to fight by raising interest rates. Despite the bank collapses, on Monday stock traders said there was an 85% probability that the Fed will raise rates another 0.25% when it meets next week. Like a water skier lifted airborne by one wave and body-slammed by the next, SVB exploded with massive deposits, only to wipe out when massive withdrawals combined with massive interest rate hikes.

Now, federal agencies propose to clean up the damage by guaranteeing uninsured deposits, a signal that these deposits are virtually insured.

8. President Biden signals confidence in banking system.

President Biden briefly addressed the banking issue Monday morning, “Thanks to the quick action of my administration the past few days, America is going to have confidence that the banking system is safe. Your deposits will be there when you need them.”

9. U.S. federal government can do little to boost confidence in banks.

Throughout the 21st century, the U.S. federal government has essentially pledged itself as the backstop for any collapse of the financial sector.

That policy only works so long as the U.S. federal government remains solvent. In a report last month, the Congressional Budget Office projected that the U.S. government will spend more money in interest payments on an ever-growing national debt than on national defense by 2028; it also projected that Social Security will become insolvent in 2033. Meanwhile, a divided Congress is at loggerheads about raising the debt ceiling, which the government hit on January 19, with Democrats and Republicans at odds about whether spending cuts should go along with a debt ceiling increase.

So, it’s worth wondering how much pledges by the U.S. federal government can boost credibility in the banking system. In fact, the latest (2022) Gallup public opinion poll found that a higher percentage of Americans have a “Great deal” or “Quite a lot” of confidence in banks (27%) than in Congress (7%) or the Presidency (23%).

10. Worldly wealth is fleeting, but a Christian can trust in God.

Reading an in-depth explainer about the collapse or tottering of several bank institutions and an emergency response from the federal government has the potential to provoke fear or anxiety in anyone, particularly a person who is cautious by nature. But while there’s room for prudence, a biblical response will not get stuck in that rut.

“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money,” Jesus told his followers (Matthew 6:24). Clearly Jesus means that we should serve God instead of money. But what reasons does he give?

Jesus had just said, “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:19-21). Earthly treasures have a tendency to up and leave.

Proverbs makes the same point, “Do not toil to acquire wealth; be discerning enough to desist. When your eyes light on it, it is gone, for suddenly it sprouts wings, flying like an eagle toward heaven” (Proverbs 23:4-5).

Building your life on worldly wealth is “like a foolish man who built his house on the sand” (Matthew 7:26). It might look just fine while all goes well, but when “the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house,” Jesus said, “it fell, and great was the fall of it” (Matthew 7:27). By contrast, said Jesus, “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock,” which “did not fall in the storm, “because it had been founded on the rock” (Matthew 7:24).

Are you trusting your future happiness to a bank’s survival, or to your heavenly Father?

Jesus gives another reason to serve God rather than money: the kindness of God will supply the needs of his children. Consider the birds and the lilies, he said. “If God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you?” (Matthew 6:30).

“Therefore,” Jesus applies the lesson, “do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ … Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” (Matthew 6:31-33).

Former Treasury Official Says U.S. Banks On Verge Of ‘Nationalization’ thumbnail

Former Treasury Official Says U.S. Banks On Verge Of ‘Nationalization’

By The Daily Caller

A former Treasury Department official said Tuesday that American banks were on the verge of being nationalized following the Friday collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and the government’s response.

“What the authorities did over the weekend was absolutely profound. They guaranteed the deposits, all of them, at Silicon Valley Bank. What that really means — and they won’t say it, and I’ll come back to that — what that really means is that they have guaranteed the entire deposit base of the U.S. financial system. The entire deposit base,” Roger Altman, a former deputy Treasury secretary in the Clinton administration, told CNN host Kaitlan Collins. “Why? Because you can’t guarantee all the deposits in Silicon Valley Bank and then the next day say to the depositors, say, at First Republic, sorry, yours aren’t guaranteed. Of course they are.”


Federal regulators shut down Silicon Valley Bank Friday after its stock price collapsed and customers began a bank run following the financial institution’s disclosure of a $1.8 billion loss on asset sales due to high interest rates, CNBC reported. Depositors who had accounts at Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank, which was shut down by regulators Sunday, will be able to fully recover their funds, the FDIC announced Sunday in conjunction with the Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve.

“So this is a breathtaking step which effectively nationalizes or federalizes the deposit base of the U.S. financial system. You can call it a bailout, you can call it something else, but it’s really absolutely profound,” Altman continued. “Now, the authorities, including the White House, are not going to say that because what I just said of course implies that they have just nationalized the banking system. Technically speaking, they haven’t. But in a broad sense, they are verging on that.”

When Collins called Altman’s statements “remarkable,” Altman emphasized that he had not said the banks had been nationalized.

“I said they are verging on that because they have guaranteed the entire deposit base. Usually the term nationalization means that the government takes over the institution and runs it and the government owns it,” Altman explained. “That would be the type of nationalization we have seen in many other countries throughout the world. Obviously, that did not happen here. When you guarantee the entire deposit base, you have put the federal government and the taxpayer in a much different place in terms of protection than we were in a week ago.”

‘Rapid Deterioration’: Moody’s Rating Service Downgrades U.S. Banking System

By The Geller Report

It’s coming down fast, folks. Literally and figuratively.

Biden voters have destroyed this country.

‘Rapid Deterioration’: Major Rating Service Downgrades U.S. Banking System

By: Spencer Brown | Townhall March 14, 2023 12:00 PM

Following the biggest bank failure since the financial crisis of 2008, Moody’s Investor Service has downgraded its rating of the “U.S. banking system” in the latest sign that President Biden’s Monday morning attempt to assuage concerns went over like a lead balloon.

Moody’s cuts outlook on entire U.S. banking system to negative, citing ‘rapidly deteriorating operating environment’ – CNBC

Moody’s — one of three major rating entities — downgraded its outlook for the U.S. banking system from “stable” to “negative” on Tuesday morning “to reflect the rapid deterioration in the operating environment following deposit runs at Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), Silvergate Bank, and Signature Bank (SNY) and the failures of SVB and SNY,” Moody’s explained.

In addition to downgrading the entire banking system, Moody’s also issued warnings for several individual banks “with substantial unrealized securities losses and with non-retail and uninsured US depositors” that “may still be more sensitive to depositor competition or ultimate flight” and end up “with adverse effects on funding, liquidity, earnings and capital.”

The unrealized losses, specifically, have become substantial:

The specific institutions being monitored by Moody’s for “potential downgrades” include INTRUST Financial, Western Alliance, Comerica, Zions Bancorp, and First Republic.

Markets, however, did not seem to move much on the news.

Moody’s just cut its outlook on U.S. banking system to negative due to ‘rapidly deteriorating operating environment’

Therapeutic Nihilism by The Lords of Healthcare—Part One thumbnail

Therapeutic Nihilism by The Lords of Healthcare—Part One

By Kelleigh Nelson

“Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground.  They want rain without thunder and lightning.  They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.  This struggle may be a moral one or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle.  Power concedes nothing without a demand.  It never did and it never will.” —  Frederick Douglass

“History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.” — General Douglas MacArthur

“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos.  Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable.” —  H. L. Mencken

“The greatest perpetrator of misinformation during the pandemic has been the United States government.” —  Dr. Marty Makary

I believe the entire hospital protocols were purposely murderous.  Remember, five governors put C-19 patients in nursing homes and killed off hundreds of thousands of elderly Medicare/Medicaid and Social Security residents.  Governors Newsom (D-CA), Whitmer (D-MI), Cuomo (D-NY), Wolf (D-PA), and Murphy (D-NJ) all stated that hospitals were running out of room, but what were their real motives?

Those hundreds of thousands of deaths helped to plant fear, and the oldsters needlessly died alone and without their loved ones.

The public was poisoned against repurposed cheap drugs that prevented and/or cured the virus called COVID.  Taking Hydroxychloroquine early in treatment for C-19 kept the virus from gaining a deadly foothold.  When C-19 had progressed, Ivermectin twice a day according to weight gave quick recovery to most of those without extensive comorbidities.  Adding Azithromycin and prednisone, an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory, helped to quell the cough and respiratory problems in short order.

In Argentina, Dr. Hector Carvallo’s prevention trials, with many of the repurposed-drug early treatments and prophylactic treatments, showed a 100% prevention of acquisition of Sars-coV-2 on patients who were on prophylactic ivermectin.  The molecule in ivermectin doesn’t just treat parasites, it has 22 mechanisms of action against Sars-coV-2, has seven or eight anti-viral mechanisms and it has multiple immune modification mechanisms.  In Dr. Carvallo’s study, two months of healthcare workers taking one ivermectin a week, zero contracted COVID.  In the placebo control group of 400 people, 57% contracted COVID.  This is how effective ivermectin was in prevention in a hospital setting.  You cannot make the same claim for these “vaccines.”

Those inexpensive repurposed drugs would have saved a majority of the lives lost.  Instead of allowing physicians the ability to save their patients by trying various treatments that would attack the symptoms the government, i.e., unelected councils…NIH, CDC, FDA, AMA, Medical Journals and mainstream media, claimed the 50- and 60-year-old drugs of IVM and HCQ were dangerous.


Because money was to be made, and massive reports of death created fear.  And fear created compliance and compliance was necessary to create the goal of a cure via inoculations.

The incompetent, devious and nihilistic Lords of Healthcare laughed all the way to the bank while Americans died.

Fear porn had won.

Murder for Gain

Allowing inexpensive treatments to restore health would not fill Big Pharma’s pockets. All of the unelected entities were slobbering over the filthy lucre flowing into their pockets.  The deaths didn’t matter, money was to be made.  Mass murder via government protocols was collateral damage that fueled depopulation advocates’ goals and saved government funding of the elderly who were quickly dispatched.  Hospitals loved the federal payouts for C-19 deaths.  Why wouldn’t they?  The government allocated $175 billion for hospitals and other providers in April of 2020.

Control won…first we donned the masks, then we locked down for months, closed our businesses, declared bankruptcy and when we got sick, most physicians would do nothing for us until we couldn’t breathe and then we entered the hospital to die. Most who tested positive for C-19 ended up on a ventilator…and 80% of them died. The C-19 tests were faulty, never should have been used and resulted in excessive positive results.

Ultimately, the majority of Americans willingly signed up for untested experimental injections available through Emergency Use Authorization and given “free” by the government.

If anything goes awry, Big Pharma has total immunity from legal liability under the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREP Act).  The controversial Act was signed into law by George W. Bush in December of 2005.  It provides immunity for the “manufacture, testing, development, distribution, administration, and use of covered countermeasures.”  Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar declared COVID-19 an emergency and invoked the PREP Act on February 4, 2020.

On march 27, 2020, Congress quickly enacted legislation thru the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) which provided over $2 trillion in funds to address the economic impacts of the pandemic. Brookings reported unheard of massive waste, fraud and corruption.

Federal funds were disbursed to hospitals to help them cope with the C-19 emergency.  The feds paid hospitals a fee for giving a C-19 test, another fee for admittance of the patient to hospital, plus the full daily Medicare with 20% added onto the hospitalization rate, no matter the insurance status. Admission nets the hospital $13K, but when they ventilate a patient, it soared to $39K.

Medicare even announced it would pay 20% more as an add-on if hospitals used the new FDA-approved drugs for C-19!  In other words, hospitals can rake in even more if they give three treatments of Remdesivir at $3100. per treatment.  Kidney or liver failure didn’t matter to the hospital administrators…more money in their pockets. WHO recommended against using Remdesivir, but Gilead raked in over $7 billion on the sale of their drug which cost them about $10.00 per dose to manufacture.

Early HCQ or IVM treatment for COVID would have jeopardized all the hospital payments.

As Minnesota State Senator, Scott Jensen M.D. told us in countless interviews, hospitals were incentivized to code admissions as having COVID-19 even when they didn’t have positive tests!  I know of too many elderly family members who, upon autopsy, were found to have bacterial pneumonia or flu, which could have been treated and saved their lives.  Oh, that every C-19 diagnosed patient who died been autopsied.  And now with the poisonous injections, we even need more autopsies to document the effects of the jabs.

The CARES Act also provided immunity for guess who…healthcare workers treating C-19 patients.  State governors added more immunity via executive orders.

Check out the state-by-state National Survey of COVID-19 Medical Malpractice Immunity Legislation (As of November 18, 2020).

States like New York covered civil liability for injury or death alleged to have been sustained directly as a result of an act or omission by person/persons covered.

Persons included in coverage were physicians, physicians assistants; specialist assistants; nurse practitioners; licensed registered professional nurses; licensed practical nurses.

The only conduct not covered was gross negligence.

But wait a minute…isn’t “gross negligence” exactly what we saw with the promotion of these one-size-fits-all hospital protocols and the untested, unstudied, untrialed Big Pharma medications?

Remdesivir Kills

Remdesivir, sold under the brand name Veklury, is a broad-spectrum antiviral medication developed by the biopharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences.  It was a pre-existing drug candidate developed by Gilead Sciences as part of an antiviral development effort, with initial results against Ebola virus (EBOV) reported in 2015.

Dr. Anthony Fauci claimed Gilead’s remdesivir would aid in COVID recovery.  The National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, (NIAID) headed by Fauci, asserted remdesivir studies proved it effective against COVID-19.

It actually can damage your kidneys and liver.  Despite the lack of positive studies, the FDA approved Remdesivir with another Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).

Remdesivir didn’t work.  Results were terribly negative.

In late August 2020, a disproportionately high number of reports of liver and kidney problems in patients receiving remdesivir were reported compared with patients receiving other drugs for COVID-19. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) also announced that its safety committee had started a review to assess reports of acute kidney injuries in some patients taking remdesivir.

Patients who knew that remdesivir was not a reliable or safe drug, were told they could instead receive Veklury, which is remdesivir.  One has to wonder; how many were fooled into being given the drug.

The oral C-19 medication, Paxlovid, wasn’t much better.  Paxlovid didn’t significantly reduce the risk of hospitalization or death in people. 

And that’s not all!  What about Operation Warp Speed Death Jabs?

Jabs, Jabs and More Jabs

You can’t tell me that pharmacists, physicians and nurses didn’t know that vaccines were supposed to be tested for years and that you never vax during a pandemic.  And what about if you’d had and recovered from C-19?  Why would you need a jab if you have natural immunity?  Common medical knowledge was thrown to the wind…and the media hawked the jabs day and night…even offering incentives.  Now this evil poison is to be given to our children before they enter the perverted government schools.  Children don’t even get COVID, so why?

Can you believe the horrific number of injections our children must now submit to?

The documents of Pfizer and Moderna, those they wanted to keep hidden for 75 years, tell the story of betrayal. The infertility, the miscarriages, the heart damage, the blood clots, the cancers, the evil destruction of healthy young bodies and the sudden deaths, all caused by one, two or five injections of the Big Pharma poison to depopulate.

Zoetis is a subsidiary of Pfizer and has quietly injected 100 million animals with the horrific mRNA technology. Livestock has also started to receive mRNA injections.


Worse yet, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation just announced a $4.7 million grant for a company that sells face masks for cows to stop their methane belches.  This is the most insane thing yet. 

It isn’t evil enough that they’re forcing these injections on our babies when they enter school. Messenger RNA and abusive and abrasive contraptions on cattle for a fabricated non-existent problem.

Mass murder of man and animals.

If ever truth fully comes to light and the American people wake up, those culpable will stand trial.

“I was just following orders” won’t hold any more water today than it did in 1945-1946.

Those who have needlessly lost loved ones want to see justice today.

The gallows await them.

“Vengeance is mine,” sayeth the Lord.

Ivermectin Saves

How many people were able to secret Ivermectin (IVM) into sick family or friends in hospital with Sars-coV-2?  I know of several, especially where the hospitals still allowed family to visit.  When this life saving drug was given, the recovery was rapid.  Within a couple days, the patient was feeling so much better and within a few more days was released to go home.

The resistance by hospitals for Ivermectin was incredibly difficult, even when an attorney had taken the case to court and the judge had instructed the hospital to give IVM.  The court battles were unconscionably difficult with IVM witnesses being called quacks.  Dying men and women were fighting for the last chance to save their lives and many were denied their “right to try” a cheap, FDA and WHO approved drug as their last and only hope since nothing but remdesivir was being offered.  Hospitals retained “godlike power” over the patients, telling them they could not choose their own care. As John Leake explains in his and Dr. Peter McCullough’s book, The Courage to Face Covid-19, “for most gravely ill patients and their families, this power resulted in death.”

The patient’s families would state in writing they would indemnify the hospitals of liability for any adverse effects of IVM and that their primary care physicians would administer the drug.  In many cases, if the court told the hospital to give the drug, one pill would be given, the patient would improve, but then the hospital would refuse to give additional medication.

Dr. Pierre Kory had testified before the Senate and showed the studies proving IVM was a valid treatment for Sars-coV-2.  Yet, the resistance was phenomenal.  After one dose, attorneys would need to return to court to order the hospital to give more than one dose of IVM.  Families would beg and plead with the hospitals to no avail.  Many had to fight to have the family doctor administer IVM or to be able to take the patient home. The hospitals demanded the patient’s physician come to the hospital to administer the drug.

Many had to find ways to smuggle IVM in to patients before they were put on vents, and those who were successful had a 100% recovery rate.

Every medical facility had bought into the government lies by the unelected councils, which used to be called Soviet, but now are pure American.  Those unelected county health departments decided masks, lockdowns, closures, mandates etc.


Dr. Vernon Coleman, who refers to himself as “the old man in a chair,” has been telling us the hard facts regarding the destruction of our medical industry.

He states, “The goal of healing has been replaced by the goal of perpetual treating. The ugliest part of this new business model is that, to keep overhead cost as low as possible, when severely handicapped and older people become ill, hospital staffs increasingly are discreetly prescribing kill shots for them, much like what might be given to an old dog or cat to end their misery. This is not a conspiracy theory, not hyperbole, and not even unusual. It is now a recognized policy in every country in which the medical system has been captured by the pharmaceutical cartel – which is most of them.”

In Part Two, we’ll discuss America’s modern-day eugenics, revived again from the 1920s and expanded to parallel Hitler’s murder of the physically and mentally unfit.

Another Bank Shutdown: Signature Bank Closed thumbnail

Another Bank Shutdown: Signature Bank Closed

By The Geller Report

There will be no accountability and no correction because it is Democrat malfeasance.

Barney Frank was the US Rep behind the Dodd-Frank bill put in place after the 2008 bank crash. The government arguably caused the failure and then turned around and put in a massive amount of regulations in response to the failure.

The monstrosity was the Dodd-Frank bill, named in part for Barney Frank.(TPG)

This is the same Barney Frank whose boyfriend, Stephen Gobie (whom Frank had once hired as a male prostitute) was running a male-brothel out of his home.

The US government shut down Signature Bank on Sunday.

On Friday, regulators closed Silicon Valley Bank, sparking panic among startups and VCs.

By: Yahoo Finance, March 13, 2023:

Both banks had a huge amount of customer deposits that were not insured by the FDIC. There are others.

A second bank was shut down by the US government on Sunday. This time it was Signature Bank.

What does this financial institution have in common with Silicon Valley Bank? They both had huge amounts of customer deposits that were not insured by the FDIC.

The FDIC insures US bank deposits up to $250,000 per account to prevent bank runs and failures. The demise of SVB, and now the collapse of Signature Bank, have stretched this system to a breaking point.

On Sunday, the US Treasury, Federal Reserve, and FDIC said in a joint statement that all depositors of SVB will be made whole on Monday. The authorities are completely ignoring the $250,000 insurance limit. SVB had $173 billion in total deposits and roughly 88% of that was not covered.

That’s more than $150 billion in extra deposits that the FDIC has suddenly decided to insure.

The authorities are giving the same special exemption to Signature Bank, so all depositors will be made whole there too. Signature had $89 billion in total deposits, and 90% of those were not insured by the FDIC. That’s another $79 billion that this agency is taking on its shoulders.

“By insuring all deposits at SVB and Signature, regulators judged the risk of cascading effects to other regional banks and the broader economy to be more significant than the moral hazard of increasing FDIC limits,” said Rich Falk-Wallace, CEO of data analytics firm Arcana and a former portfolio manager at hedge fund Citadel.

In the case of SVB and Signature, the high percentage of uninsured deposits is partly a function of having a relatively small number of clients with large balances. At SVB, for example, Roku revealed it had almost $500 million in deposits at the bank, extending far beyond the $250,000 guarantee.

BIDEN’S NEW TAX HELL: Proposes $5.5 TRILLION in Tax Hikes, LARGEST TAX INCREASE in History thumbnail


By The Geller Report

Make no mistake, this massive tax hike will it every single America and most of all our savings. Biden is raising capital gains tax from 20% to 40%, imposing a tax on unrealized gains, huge increases on two income families, but hit worst of all, small business.

Biden’s titanic tax hikes are only exceeded by his spending.

Even with $5 trillion in tax hikes bringing the highest sustained tax burden America has ever seen, the public-held national debt would still jump from $25 trillion to $44 trillion according to the president’s own figures.

Annual budget deficits would grow past $2 trillion even with peace and prosperity.

Simply paying the interest on the national debt would cost taxpayers $10 trillion over the decade — more than any program besides Social Security and Medicare.

Apart from crashing the stock market, it will impoverish savers, homeowners and stock-holders.

It’s a deathblow to the American economy.

Biden’s $5 trillion tax blowout still leaves soaring red ink


President Biden’s budget request is meant to drive headlines showcasing a claimed $3 trillion in deficit reduction over the next decade.

In reality, his budget proposes the largest tax increase in modern history, plows much of the new savings into more new spending and leaves Social Security on its path to insolvency.

Start with taxes.

Inflation-adjusted federal revenues have already soared to $1 trillion above pre-pandemic levels, to their second-highest share of the economy since World War II.

Yet the president would raise taxes by an additional $5 trillion over the decade — the largest tax hike since the 1960s.

Total revenues would approach 20% of the economy, and income-tax revenues would average 10% of the economy over the decade.

Both would represent the highest sustained tax burdens in American history.

America’s businesses would bear much of the tax burden.

Total corporate taxes would jump by 56%, to their highest sustained share of the economy since the 1970s (and may exceed the 1970s levels when also accounting for small-business taxes).

Much of these revenues would come from raising the corporate tax rate from 21% to 28%.

When including state taxes, American corporations would face the second-highest tax burden among Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development nations.

In a world of global tax competition, America would again hamstring its own competitiveness.

One could defend steep tax increases if accompanied by equal spending savings as part of a balanced plan to combat Washington’s trillion-dollar deficits.

Biden proposes $5.5 TRILLION in tax hikes on the rich to pay for $6.8T budget that includes pay raise for federal workers and funding for green agenda

  • The budget proposes a 7.3 percent increase in non-defense discretionary spending – about double its increase in defense spending
  • It calls for $688B in non-defense discretionary spending – a $47B increase
  • Calls for $886 billion to be allocated to overall defense – an increase over 2023’s $858 billion

By Morgan Phillips, U.S. Political Reporter and Emily Goodin, Senior U.S. Political Reporter For

President Joe Biden on Thursday released a $6.8 trillion budget that puts higher taxes on the rich, targets corporations and gives a huge injection of funding for social programs such as child care and paid family leave.

The plan includes raking in $5.5 trillion in tax revenues from the wealthiest Americans by raising the top rate for those making more than $400,000 from 39.6 percent from 37 percent and imposing a 25 percent minimum income tax on billionaires.

The president’s plan – which he says will reduce the deficit by $3 trillion over 10 years – would also nearly double the capital gains tax rate for investment to 39.6 percent from 20 percent and raise income levies on corporations.

Enough for the largest peacetime budget in history has also been proposed – including $842 billion for the Pentagon, a 5.2 percent pay rise for troops, $6 billion in support for Ukraine and Europe and $37 billion on the nuclear weapons program.

There are also billions set aside for a 5.2 percent pay rise for federal workers, support for refugees, more offshore wind farms and a $25 billion investment in border security.

The huge budget is likely to be blocked in Congress, and Republicans have already called the plan ‘reckless’ and a ‘road map to fiscal ruin’.


Pamela Geller


Inflation was 1.4% when Biden took office. Now it’s 6.4%.

So how is President Biden going to help? By proposing a budget that calls for $6.8 trillion dollars in spending that even his tax increases can’t cover.

That’s not going to “whip” inflation, that’s going to feed it.

Federal Judge Strikes Down Key Biden Border Policy: ‘Speedbump For Aliens’ thumbnail

Federal Judge Strikes Down Key Biden Border Policy: ‘Speedbump For Aliens’

By The Daily Caller

A federal judge has struck down a Biden administration immigration policy that allows the release of illegal aliens at the border, saying it “effectively turned the Southwest Border into a meaningless line in the sand.”

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody filed the lawsuit in September 2021, arguing that Biden administration policies allowing the mass release of illegal aliens throughout the country—some of whom end up in Florida—violates law established by Congress that mandates detention upon entry. Judge T. Kent Wetherell ruled in favor of Florida, finding the administration’s Parole and Alternative to Detention (Parole + ATD) policy to be unlawful.

The policy, he said, turns the border into “little more than a speedbump for aliens flooding into the country by prioritizing ‘alternatives to detention’ over actual detention and by releasing more than a million aliens into the country—on ‘parole’ or pursuant to the exercise of ‘prosecutorial discretion’ under a wholly inapplicable statute—without even initiating removal proceedings.”

Shortly after taking office, Biden took a series of actions to loosen immigration restrictions, including repealing President Trump’s Executive Order 13767 terminating the catch-and-release policy. 

“Collectively, these actions were akin to posting a flashing ‘Come In, We’re Open’ sign on the southern border,” Judge T. Kent Wetherell wrote. “The unprecedented ‘surge’ of aliens that started arriving at the Southwest Border almost immediately after President Biden took office and that has continued unabated over the past two years was a predictable consequence of these actions.”

Evidence supports the fact that over 100,000 illegal aliens ended up in Florida, Wetherell said.

“Today’s ruling affirms what we have known all along, President Biden is responsible for the border crisis and his unlawful immigration policies make this country less safe,” Attorney General Moody said in a statement. “A federal judge is now ordering Biden to follow the law, and his administration should immediately begin securing the border to protect the American people.”

The Biden administration has seven days to appeal the ruling. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Greatest Ripoff in American History: Democrats Spent $100 Billion of Your Money on Climate Hoax thumbnail

The Greatest Ripoff in American History: Democrats Spent $100 Billion of Your Money on Climate Hoax

By The Geller Report

You have to wonder what its going to take for Americans to wake up to the party of treason.

Is this the greatest ripoff in American history?

America has spent $100 billion of your money on climate change. How’s that working out?

By Stephen Moore | NY Sun, March 7, 2023:

Biden admin internal climate agenda memo leaked

Former U.S. Homeland Security Adviser Dr. Julia Nesheiwat joined ‘Fox & Friends Weekend’ to discuss what the leaked climate memo indicates about the Biden administration’s priorities.
NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

For at least the last 20 years, politicians in Washington, at the behest of green energy groups, have spent some $100 billion of taxpayer money to fight climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. How is that going for us so far?

A recent Associated Press story, based on the latest data on global carbon emissions, provides a pretty accurate report card: “Carbon Dioxide Emissions Reached a Record High in 2022.”

The article tells us: “Communities around the world emitted more carbon dioxide in 2022 than in any other year on records dating to 1900, a result of air travel rebounding from the pandemic and more cities turning to coal as a low-cost source of power. Emissions of the climate-warming gas that were caused by energy production grew 0.9% to reach 36.8 gigatons in 2022, the International Energy Agency reported Thursday. (The mass of one gigaton is equivalent to about 10,000 fully loaded aircraft carriers, according to NASA.)”

You’ve got to almost shriek out loud when you read this line: “Thursday’s (IEA) report was described as disconcerting by climate scientists.”

“Disconcerting”? That’s putting it lightly. We are the furthest thing from being climate change alarmists, but when you spend $100 billion of taxpayer money and achieve absolutely nothing, President Joe Biden and his green allies should be arrested for criminal fraud.

Where did all the money go? Tens of billions of dollars have lined the pockets of left-wing environmental and social justice groups that have been emitting a lot of hot air but no results. Green energy companies have milked taxpayers of tens of billions more.

Where did all the money go? Tens of billions of dollars have lined the pockets of left-wing environmental and social justice groups that have been emitting a lot of hot air but no results. Green energy companies have milked taxpayers of tens of billions more, even as wind and solar only produce about 12% of our energy.

Is this the greatest ripoff of U.S. taxpayers in history?

IRS Allows Islamic Terrorists to Fundraise Through Leftist Nonprofit thumbnail

IRS Allows Islamic Terrorists to Fundraise Through Leftist Nonprofit

By Jihad Watch

Rabbi Eitan Shnerb was hiking to a spring with his son Dvir and his daughter Rina when the bomb went off. For a moment, as he described it in the hospital, everything went black. Then, badly wounded, he saw that the two teenagers were bleeding. Rabbi Shnerb was a trained paramedic. He saw that Rina, his 17-year-old daughter, had absorbed most of the blast. He kissed her on the forehead. And then he turned his Tzizit, the biblical garment that Orthodox Jewish men wear, into a tourniquet for his 19-year-old son to stop the bleeding.

 Dvir told his father that he couldn’t breathe and passed out. His daughter was already dead.

“I wanted to believe it was just a dream,” Rabbi Shnerb said from his hospital bed. “I have experienced several bombs in my life and been saved, thank God, but this one got us,..I immediately called to Rina, shouting ‘Rina, Rina,’ I looked down and saw that she was not alive.”

Rabbi Shnerb had stopped a terrorist attack earlier this year by two armed attackers. This time he had not seen the explosion coming.

The terrorist group behind the 2019 terrorist attack was the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. And the IRS is accused of allowing it to fundraise through a leftist nonprofit group.

One name that keeps coming up in the Freedom Center’s investigations of nonprofits is the Alliance for Global Justice. AFGJ was spun off from the Nicaragua Network which had been set up to support the Sandinista Marxist terror regime. It went on to operate the Venezuela Solidarity Campaign in support of the narcosocialist Maduro regime in that country.

While the IRS has harassed pro-Israel groups and interrogated them about their views, it has apparently never found the time to ask the AFGJ about its support for enemy nations. It currently features a commemoration of Chavez’s legacy in support of a regime whose bosses are wanted criminals for their role in a cartel smuggling cocaine into the United States.

AFGJ’s backers include George Soros, Tides, the Ben and Jerry’s Foundation, and other wealthy leftists, and it has used its status as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit to offer fiscal sponsorship to some of the worst of the worst close to home. The 130 groups it sponsors include several Black Lives Matter chapters, the Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition in support of a cop killer, pro-illegal alien groups, as well as several brail funds whose mission is freeing rioters and criminals.

Some of these groups might not be able to obtain nonprofit status on their own, but benefit from the fiscal sponsorship of the Alliance for Global Justice.which allows them to accept tax-deductible contributions. When Refuse Fascism, a group linked by some to Antifa and which has defended Antifa violence, solicits donations, it does so using the Action Network, a platform utilized by both Antifa and the DNC, and directs tax-deductible donations through AFGJ.

The same is true of the Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network which asks supporters to direct checks to AFGJ. Samidoun does not bother to disguise what it is. It describes terrorists as “resistance fighters” and “martyrs”, and urges support for the “resistance”. The cheerleading for terrorists is accompanied by a call, “Make your US tax-deductible donation today, and donate safely and securely from around the world.”

The AFGJ states that, “Fiscal sponsorship services are offered to grassroots non-profits that agree with the AFGJ vision and mission statements.” Does that include terrorists?

After the murder of Rina Shnerb, Israel arrested members of a PFLP terror network embedded inside nonprofit groups. Israel designated Samidoun as a subsidiary of the PFLP terrorist organization. Multiple PFLP figures have been accused of serving leadership roles in Samidoun including its executive director, former vice chair, and multiple coordinators.

PayPal, MasterCard, Visa and other financial services have cut off access to Samidoun and the latest also cut off AFGJ. Currently, AFGJ and its various sponsorees warn donors that they can only take paper checks.

“AfGJ cannot accept credit donations—and neither can the 140 organizations that rely on AfGJ to provide them with fiscal sponsorship,” the leftist group cautions.

While AFGJ is running low on online sites willing to process donations to them, the IRS has yet to take any action. The Zachor Legal Institute, a pro-Israel group fighting BDS, filed an IRS complaint and directed a letter to the DOJ noting that the “PFLP has built a financial system supported by an infrastructure of the Seven PFLP Proxies who raise money on various humanitarian pretexts” while “directing money to the PFLP.”

And yet the odds of the IRS taking action are slim. Even though the PFLP was designated as one of the terrorist groups listed by President George W. Bush after September 11, it was less difficult for Zachor and conservative media to persuade financial services companies to stop processing donations for AFGJ than to get the IRS to enforce tax code regulations and the law.

AFGJ informed the IRS that its mission is to “achieve social change and economic justice”. In reality it has helped unleash violence at home and abroad. The beneficiaries include BLM’s Louisville Community Bail Fund which bailed out Quintez Brown, a Black Lives Matter activist, who walked into the campaign office of a Louisville political candidate and opened fire.

While payment processors have cut off the Alliance for Global Justice, the IRS has yet to act. After over two decades, the IRS has shown no interest in taking action even as the AFGJ continues to act as a fiscal sponsor for groups that would not qualify for nonprofit status. The fiscal sponsorship loophole continues to be abused to fund everything including terrorism.

The Freedom Center’s pamphletInternal Radical Service by David Horowitz and John Perazzo, has exposed how the IRS routinely allows leftist nonprofits to violate tax codes and the law. The fiscal sponsorship loophole is widely used by radical leftists to make illegal activity tax deductible. Tax code regulations state that “exempt purposes may generally be equated with the public good, and violations of law are the antithesis of the public good”. They warn that, “violation of constitutionally valid laws is inconsistent with exemption under IRC 501(c)(3)” and that “planned activities that violate laws are not in furtherance of a charitable purpose”.

Terrorism is one of the most blatant possible examples of behavior at odds with the public good.

While the IRS is warning waiters to report their tips, it allows terrorists to benefit from tax deductible money. Payment processors have shown that they have a higher level of compliance with the law than the IRS. When the IRS refuses to enforce the law while demanding that everyone abide by it, that is a culture of lawlessness and, in this case, it’s costing lives.

Ohio residents ordered to stay inside as another train derails

By Katherine Donlevy, NY Post, March 4, 2023:

Ohio residents were ordered to shelter in place Saturday after another Norfolk Southern train ran off the tracks.

The 212-car train derailed at Ohio 41 near the Prime Ohio Business Park in Springfield around 5 p.m., the Clark County Emergency Management said.

About 20 of the train’s box cars toppled off the tracks while it was traveling through the city.

A spokesperson confirmed with The Post that Norfolk Southern — the same railway company involved in the tragic East Palestine derailment that contaminated 1.1 million gallons of water and 15,000 pounds of soil — was operating the derailed train.

“No hazardous materials are involved and there have been no reported injuries,” the company said.

Covid-19: The Crime of the Century thumbnail

Covid-19: The Crime of the Century

By Wallace Bruschweiler

Frederick Forsyth’s 1971 novel The Day of the Jackal is the ultimate example of a skilled novelist manipulating readers to suspend what they know is true and believe something else entirely. Yet, as with hypnotism, the human mind must be willing to permit the “suspension of disbelief.” As we shall see, this “willingness” was manipulated by unscrupulous political actors to create The Crime of the Century.

A recent example is the willingness of so many people to believe that Covid 19 came innocently from live bats sold in a local wet market rather than from a ChiCom bio-research laboratory in Wuhan, China. When President Trump opined Covid 19 came from Wuhan China, the MSM called him a xenophobic racist. Recently, President Trump was proven correct when FBI Director Wray told Congress the FBI had long known Covid 19 came from the Wuhan lab.

Although President Trump was proven correct, History is replete with tragic examples of people in power unwilling to accept the truth when indisputable facts were at hand. For example: Long after an Hungarian doctor, Ignatz Semmelweis, proved, in 1847, that childbed fever could be prevented by simply requiring hand disinfection in obstetrical clinics, it took until 1995 before the CDC recommended that healthcare providers clean their hands before and after treating patients.

In 1900, Major Walter Reed and Major William Gorgas stopped the Yellow Fever pandemic in Cuba by eradicating the female Aedes Aegypti mosquito. Still, in 1905, the U.S. Isthmian Canal Commission refused to support the efforts of, by then, Colonel William Gorgas to eradicate the female Aedes Aegypti mosquito and the female Anopheles mosquito that transmits malaria.

Outraged, President Teddy Roosevelt “reorganized” the Commission and pledged his full support for Colonel Gorgas’ mosquito eradication efforts. Without Roosevelt’s timely intervention, there would not be a Panama Canal, only the debris left behind by the French whose canal workforce was wiped out by Yellow Fever and Malaria.

Recall, in 2020, President Trump said hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) showed promise as a treatment for Covid 19. Immediately, Big Pharma and the MSM denounced HCQ as irrelevant and even harmful despite the fact that hundreds of thousands of GIs in Vietnam had, without harm, taken a stronger version of HCQ to ward off malaria. Early use of the inexpensive HCQ Cocktail against Covid 19 could have saved the lives of millions.

Instead, around the world millions died of Covid 19, a thriving U.S. economy was wrecked; riots broke out unchecked in our major cities whose “woke” mobs reviled Police and First Responders alike. Existentially worse, millions of Americans were forced to submit to injections of gene-altering vaccines that are causing serious health problems for many, even death for some, and may end up poisoning our gene pool for generations to come.

Now is the time to disbelieve the male bovine excreta of the politically biased MSM, the inept NIH/CDC, and greedy Big Pharma. Together, they subjected America to a mass Dr. Mengele-style experiment that is a crime against humanity, a crime that should be addressed by a Nuremberg-style tribunal and the perpetrators brought to Justice.

Pentagon Asks Troops to Stop Displaying Big U.S. Flags

By The Geller Report

The Biden regime is at war against America. 2020 was a coup.

The Defense Department has urged military service members to stop using the U.S. flag in popular patriotic demonstrations that are nonetheless violations of the national flag code.

By: Justin Cooper, American Military news, February 28, 2023:

A memo issued Feb. 10 said it is no longer acceptable for troops to carry the U.S. flag horizontally, such as on the field at sporting events, or for the flag to land on the ground after flying behind a parachutist, Stars and Stripes reported.

The memo bars uniformed troops from directly participating in the “unfurling, holding, and/or carrying of giant horizontal U.S. flags.” It also prohibits military jump teams from using the flag in their performances if it “cannot be caught reliably and handled respectfully by ground personnel.”

“In recent years, some sporting events have asked military members to hold large, horizontal flags during events, and some military units have carried them in parades,” DoD spokesperson Cmdr. Nicole Schwegman said in a statement. “While many, including service members, find these events moving and patriotic, according to the code, the flag should never touch the ground or be carried flat or horizontally.“

Title 4 of the United States Code, also known as the Flag Code, specifies that “the flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.” That section also states that “the flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground.”

The new memo was sent to military public affairs offices. Chris Meagher, assistant to the secretary of defense for public affairs, encouraged “public affairs officers to work with sponsors of community events to develop other ways to showcase the patriotism and capabilities of our military that comply with DoD policy.”

The Pentagon also revisited flag rules in 2020, when Secretary of Defense Mark Esper issued a military-wide policy specifying which flags can be flown at military installations, buildings and vehicles. That policy was seen as prohibiting the flying of Confederate flags without specifically naming them, as reported by Stars and Stripes.

Media Says Americans Should Just Skip Meals To Cut High Grocery Bills thumbnail

Media Says Americans Should Just Skip Meals To Cut High Grocery Bills

By The Geller Report

Democrats want you miserable, poor and hungry. Who votes for this?

This is the left’s economy of scarcity replacing American’s economy of abundance.

WSJ Suggests Americans Skip A Meal To Save Money- No Joke!

By: Erica Carlin, Liberty One, February 2023:

I hate even repeating this ignorant idea, but people should know what the left thinks we should all be doing if we want to save money. For instance, Democrats are blaming the ‘poor’ (Also known as the lower and middle class—Basically the rest of us) for inflation. According to them, Americans are only spending money on essentials and that’s driving up inflation.

Now, the Wall Street Journal suggests Americans skip a meal to save money. I want to believe this article was satirical but given the current climate, it’s poorly curated.

A joke or not WSJ said that because egg price increases were the worst, Americans should just skip that meal completely:

“Several breakfast staples saw sharp price increases due to a perfect storm of bad weather and disease outbreaks—and continued effects from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Egg prices increased 8.5% in January from a month earlier and are up 70.1% over the past year, the highest annual rate since 1973. The deadliest avian-influenza outbreak on record has devastated poultry flocks across the U.S., leading the price of eggs to rise more than any other grocery item in 2022, according to Information Resources Inc. U.S. egg inventories were 29% lower in the final week of December 2022 than at the beginning of 2022, according to the USDA.

Frozen, noncarbonated juices and drinks—a category that includes frozen orange juice—rose by 1.5% in January from a month earlier, and the 12.4% annual increase is the highest in over a decade. Florida orange growers are harvesting their smallest crop in nearly 90 years, the result of a freeze, two hurricanes and a citrus disease that is laying waste to its groves.”

Biden Issues Second Executive Order to ‘Further’ Advance Governmentwide Racial Equity thumbnail

Biden Issues Second Executive Order to ‘Further’ Advance Governmentwide Racial Equity

By Judicial Watch

Although the U.S. has already implemented a governmentwide plan to advance racial equity and support underserved communities under a 2021 Biden executive order, the president has issued a second directive to strong arm federal agencies into launching more initiatives that will further tax Americans. Under the recently issued mandate government agencies have 30 days to establish an “Agency Equity Team” and conduct proactive engagement with members of underserved communities through culturally and linguistically appropriate listening sessions. Biden is also creating a White House Steering Committee on Equity composed of senior officials who will coordinate the government’s sweeping efforts to promote his leftist agenda.

“By advancing equity, the Federal Government can support and empower all Americans, including the many communities in America that have been underserved, discriminated against, and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality,” Biden writes in the new document, adding that “equitability” will rebuild trust in government. “This order builds upon my previous equity-related Executive Orders by extending and strengthening equity-advancing requirements for agencies, and it positions agencies to deliver better outcomes for the American people,” according to the president. As examples the commander-in-chief offers building a strong, fair, and inclusive workforce and economy, investing in communities where federal policies have historically impeded equal opportunity, mitigating economic displacement, rooting out discrimination in the housing market, advancing equity in health, environmental justice and ending “unjust disparities” in the nation’s criminal justice system.

Additionally, the director of the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) will update directives to “support equitable decision-making, promote equitable deployment of financial and technical assistance, and assist agencies in advancing equity, as appropriate and wherever possible,” the new executive order says. This is important because OMB plays a pivotal role in government by developing and executing the federal budget, overseeing federal agencies and executive branch operations, and coordinating all significant federal regulations. The new order also includes a blueprint to make equity part of the official federal budget process and specifically prevent discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation. “My Administration has embedded a focus on equity into the fabric of Federal policymaking and service delivery,” Biden writes, bragging that his presidency is the most diverse in our nation’s history.

This month’s executive order is part of a robust movement by the administration to incorporate racial equity across all federal agencies. The president launched the plan on his first day in office with the lengthy executive order to advance racial equity and support for underserved communities through the government. The 2021 document claims that “entrenched disparities” in laws, public policies, and private institutions have denied equal opportunity to individuals and communities and that the health and climate crises have exposed inequities while a “historic movement for justice has highlighted the unbearable human costs of systemic racism.” Therefore, the original order states, the federal government should pursue a “comprehensive approach to advancing equity for all, including people of color and others who have been historically underserved, marginalized, and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality.” It further says that “by advancing equity across the Federal Government, we can create opportunities for the improvement of communities that have been historically underserved, which benefits everyone.”

Many key federal agencies have taken major steps to implement racial equity plans as per Biden’s first mandate. The Department of Justice (DOJ) has formulated a strategy to “advance equity for marginalized and underserved communities” that, among other things, directs federal prosecutors to ignore maximum sentencing under the law to “avoid unwarranted disparities.” The Department of Labor has dedicated $260 million to promote “equitable access” to government unemployment benefits by addressing disparities in the administration and delivery of money by race ethnicity and language proficiency. The Treasury Department named its first ever racial equity chief, a veteran La Raza official who spent a decade at the nation’s most influential open borders group. The Department of Defense (DOD) is using outrageous anti-bias materials that indoctrinate troops with anti-American and racially inflammatory training on diversity topics. The U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) created an equity commission to address longstanding inequities in agriculture. The nation’s medical research agency has a special minority health and health disparities division that issued a study declaring COVID-19 exacerbated preexisting resentment against racial/ethnic minorities and marginalized communities.

Biden Regime Is Tracking the Unvaccinated thumbnail

Biden Regime Is Tracking the Unvaccinated

By The Geller Report

Communist government at work.

The Democrats are targeting critical thinkers, free thinkers and individuals who understand and cherish their individual rights enshrined in our beloved Constitution.

By: Joseph Mercola, The Epoch Times, February 16, 2023:

The U.S. government has been secretly tracking those who didn’t get the COVID jab, as well as those who aren’t up to date on their shots. Worse, it is recording the reason why. Now that the program has been widely adopted, know why it’s being done and how you can outsmart it.

Story at a Glance

The U.S. government has secretly been tracking those who didn’t get the COVID jab, or are only partially jabbed, through a previously unknown surveillance program designed by the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), a division of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The program was implemented on April 1, 2022, and adopted by most medical clinics and hospitals across the United States starting January 2023.
Under this program, doctors at clinics and hospitals have been instructed to ask patients about their vaccination status, which is then added to their electronic medical records as a diagnostic code, known as ICD-10 code, so that they can be tracked inside and outside of the medical system.
These new ICD-10 codes are part of the government’s plan to implement medical tyranny using vaccine passports and digital IDs.
The government is also tracking noncompliance with all other recommended vaccines using new ICD-10 codes, and has implemented codes to describe WHY you didn’t get a recommended vaccine. It’s also added a billable ICD code for “vaccine safety counseling.”

As recently discovered and reported by Dr. Robert Malone,1 the U.S. government has secretly been tracking those who didn’t get the COVID jab, or are only partially jabbed, through a previously unknown surveillance program designed by the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), a division of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The program was implemented on April 1, 2022,2 but didn’t become universally adopted by most medical clinics and hospitals across the United States until January 2023.

Under this program, doctors at clinics and hospitals have been instructed to ask patients about their vaccination status, which is then added to their electronic medical records as a diagnostic code, known as ICD-10 code, without their knowledge or consent so that they can be tracked—not just within the health care system but outside of it as well.
Secret Tracking Program Revealed

The new International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes were introduced during the Sept. 14–15, 2021, ICD-10 Coordination and Maintenance Committee meeting. The ICD committee includes representatives from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the NCHS.3

Below is a screenshot of page 194 of the agenda4 distributed during that meeting. According to the NCHS, “there is interest in being able to track people who are not immunized or only partially immunized,” and they figured out a way to do just that, by adding new ICD-10 codes.

As you can see below, ICD-10 code Z28.310 identifies those who have not received a COVID jab and Z28.311 identifies those who are not up to date on their shots.

Click here to view: IDC-10 Coordination and Maintenance Committee Meeting, September 14-15, 2021 Underimmunization for COVID-19

Tracking Unjabbed Is Part of the Biosecurity Agenda

Why do they want to track the unvaccinated? For what purpose? The short answer: to facilitate the implementation of vaccine passports. As noted by Malone:5

“Code Number Z28.310 listed above is not a code for an illness or diagnosis, but rather for noncompliance of a medical procedure … Once a person’s vaccination status is coded and uploaded into [a] large data base, it can be accessed by government and private health insurers alike.

“The administrative state officers at the CDC have not made immunization status a reportable disease (yet) but immunization status is listed as one of the reasons for mandatory reporting.6 They are just one step away from being able to collect this information without your permission. Ergo: Vaccine passports made easy. In this country, not having your vaccine records ‘up to date’ might mean:

“• The government will not restrict your travel, airlines will.

“• The government will not restrict your travel, other nations will.

“• The government will not restrict your travel, auto rental companies will.

“• The government will not restrict your travel, public transport will.

“• The government will not restrict your travel, private companies will.”
World Health Organization Signed Off on Tracking Codes

The ICD codes were created by the World Health Organization (WHO), and doctors—except those in private practice who don’t accept insurance—are required to use these codes to describe a patient’s condition and the care they received during their visit.
