So, the fed raises the rate again to 5.25% from near zero a year ago. Then we were told by the fed, secretary of treasury and White House that inflation was “transitory.”
Okay, now we know it’s not, so my question is, and I don’t know which answer is worse, did they not know what was happening, or did they lie?
It’s one or the other.
Though it’s not getting coverage in the MSM, the ESG issue for your investments is a major topic in some states with Republican governors. Look at this and see for yourself:
Since the President’s speech and veto, most Republican State Governors are saying no to ESG.
In fact, this week 19 governors signed a statement committing to these points:
I. Protecting taxpayers from ESG influences across state systems:
This includes blocking the use of ESG in all investment decisions at the state and local level, ensuring that only financial factors are considered to maximize the return on investment, protecting retirees and taxpayers alike.
II. Protecting citizens from ESG influences in the financial sector:
This includes banning the financial sector from considering so called “Social Credit Scores” in banking and lending practices aimed to prevent citizens from obtaining financial services like loans, lines of credit, and bank accounts.
Here are their names and signatures. Take a look. Doesn’t it deserve media coverage since it is directly opposite what the President said the bill was?
Remember when the plan was put in place to change the names of military bases? Well ,the first one is about to be changed.
Fort Pickett, a National Guard base in Virginia, will this week be the first Army post to change its name under a congressionally mandated policy to purge public references to the Confederacy in the U.S. military?
On Friday, it will be renamed Fort Barfoot in honor of Col. Van T. Barfoot, who was awarded the Medal of Honor in World War II and later served in Korea and Vietnam during a 34-year Army career.
The base was initially named for Confederate Maj. Gen. George Pickett, best remembered as one of the commanders of Pickett’s Charge, a futile attack during the third day of the Battle of Gettysburg.
One follow up this morning on the story we reported on yesterday from the NYT, that Fox News was worried about losing viewers after the 2020 election.
Here’s last weeks ratings from Nielsen Media Research:
For the week of March 13-19, Fox News Channel earned an audience of 1,985,000 prime-time viewers.
MSNBC had 1.1 million viewers and CNN with 383,000.
Fox News had 83 of the top 100 cable-news telecasts.
And all of the top 10.
I rest my case.
