Letting filthy private jets go tax-free shows how the EU prioritises the mega-rich over the masses

Despite being hugely damaging for the environment, private planes operated by millionaires are to be given carbon tax exemption by hypocritical bureaucrats who tirelessly push a green agenda. It’s Brussels hypocrisy at its finest.

Before many seriously thought about Brexit, and before Boris Johnson and the Leave brigade had even dared hope for a referendum on quitting the European Union, the party that went on to cause a political earthquake by winning the 2014 European elections came up with a brilliant campaign billboard that resonated across the country.

The large poster from the outliers at UKIP juxtaposed two images: one of a miserable and crowded commute on a bus and the other of a Brussels bureaucrat sitting comfortably in the back of a chauffeur-driven limousine, smug smile plastered across his face and the flags adorning the facade of the European Commission’s headquarters visible through the rear window.

Federal eviction moratorium extended until July 31, what's next? How did we get here?

Saved for another month, thousands of families have more time before the CDC's federal eviction moratorium expires July 31.

This came after the White House extended the previous moratorium which was set to expire June 30.

However, this extension is intended to be the last one.

According to the Florida Office of State Courts, as of March 2020 more than 100,000 evictions have been filed across the state.

Daniel Rollins was one of those plaintiffs in Palm Beach County who faced an eviction complaint in early 2021.

He said at the time, he was afraid to think of what would happen to him and his four-legged best friends, Rocky & Rambo, if he was out on the street.

America plunging into “Venezuela meets Truman Show” as the collapse and gaslighting accelerate

Much like Venezuela, the United States of America is now experiencing: Rigged elections and rule by lawless tyrants. -- The collapse of the economy due to endless money printing and government corruption. -- Authoritarian rule by corrupt government, complete with upcoming gun confiscations and forced “door-to-door” vaccinations. -- Skyrocketing rates of crime and violence in the streets. -- Worsening censorship and the banning / criminalization of dissenting views. -- The pushing of race wars and anti-white rhetoric by military leaders and deep state operations, all of whom seem poised to declare war on white America.

Gold, Silver And Basel Three: A Glimpse Of The Future

By Dave Kanzler

Basel Three is not what most analysts believe it to be. Over time it may remove the fraudulent paper derivative and unallocated “gold” mechanisms in NYC and London. But for what purpose? Cui bono? Chris Marcus hosted myself, Rob Kientz and Chris Marchese last week to discuss our views on the precious metals sector and Basel Three. The must-listen portion is the segment in which Rob lays out the plan for Basel Three.

I am certain he is correct because I came to same conclusion as Rob but I was missing some pieces. Rob provides those missing pieces – at least for me. Basel Three is part of a broad plan by the Central Banks to take complete control of the global monetary system and, along with that, the various political systems. It’s not a coincidence that a former Fed Chairman – Janet Yellen – was inserted to be the Treasury Secretary, thereby completely smashing the separation of power between the Fed and the Government.

You're not the only one who's had enough — 95 percent of workers are considering quitting, report says

After more than a year of grinding stress, America’s workers have had enough — and it could be a big headache for employers.

A new poll from job platform found that 95 percent of workers are thinking about finding a new job, and 92 percent would consider switching industries for a new position. The top culprit, pollsters found, was burnout. Cited by 32 percent of respondents, it was the most common reason people gave for wanting to throw in the towel on their current job.

“Burnout is especially common right now,” said Vicki Salemi, career expert at Monster.

Biden's Policies Pushing The Wealthy Out Of The Country

The wealthiest American earners could pay $1.5 million more in taxes, shows a new analysis based on if Congress passes Joe Biden’s recommended tax hikes to pay for his so-called ‘human infrastructure’ plan.

The nonpartisan Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center discovered that the top 0.1 percent of Americans – those who make $3.6 million or more – would pay an added $1.56 million each in federal taxes each year on top of the taxes they already pay.

Oil Prices Hammered After OPEC+ Talks Fail

Oil prices briefly spiked Tuesday before sinking after the latest talks by OPEC+ crude producers fell apart as global equity markets mostly retreated.

US oil futures approached a seven-year peak after the talks between the 23 members of the petroleum producers group were called off, an OPEC statement said, ending negotiations on a proposal to boost crude supply.

But investors quickly shifted course, selling off both Brent and West Texas Intermediate futures contracts, as investors fixated on a possible disintegration of any effort to rein in supply.

"There is capacity to produce more oil, much more in fact, and the market expects that logic will soon prevail," said Rystad Energy analyst Louise Dickson.

China makes its move on Afghanistan: Beijing prepares to fill the vacuum left by Biden's premature military exit from the nation with $62B investment plan for its 'Belt and Road' program

While American troops were leaving their main military base in Afghanistan on Friday, China was already preparing to enter the war-torn country to fill the vacuum left by U.S. and NATO troops.

Authorities in Kabul are considering extending a $62 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) as part of China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

First launched in 2013 by Chinese president Xi Jinping, and written into the Chinese constitution in 2017, it is billed by Beijing officials as a global infrastructure development fund which aims to better connect China to the rest of the world.

One For The History Books: A New Control Regime In Oil

You have to give pause when you think that the only news in markets that mattered today is OPEC+ and what the next move is by them. We live in a world with growing demand, shrinking supply. ESG matters, climate change, inflation, Iran, etc, mean nothing today in the global crude market. All people want to know is what OPEC+ is going to do next. So clearly IT is an important issue for the market before we tackle anything else.

The sticking point in the talks – the UAE (United Arab Emirates) want a higher baseline after large-scale CAPEX investments in recent years’ production capacity and wants to boost production by 700mbd. On the other hand, the Saudis do not want to offend the Russians and other players by adjusting the UAE baseline.

The oppressed peoples, who clearly live in constant fear that they could be killed by racist white police at any moment for any reason over the most minor of slights, could be seen making their getaway in what appeared to be three nice, newer-model sedans.
