A report by Special Counsel John Durham released Monday found the FBI should not have launched a full investigation into the connections between former President Donald Trump's campaign and Russia during the 2016 election, with the report saying the FBI used "raw, unanalyzed and uncorroborated intelligence" to justify the investigation. read more
While U.S. President Joe Biden has promised to hold accountable those responsible for SVB's collapse, such promises, too, should be greeted with a healthy dose of skepticism. After all, the Obama administration, in which Biden served as vice president, never held any bankers responsible for the 2008 financial crisis. The fact is that regulators " including the Fed " have failed to keep the banking system safe. Banks depend on trust: depositors need to be confident that they can withdraw their money whenever they want. That has always been true. What has changed is the ease with which billions of dollars can be withdrawn in a nano-second online.
"Social Security faces a looming financial shortfall," Richard Johnson, director of the Program on Retirement Policy at the Urban Institute, a Washington-based think tank, told Newsweek. "Social Security benefits now exceed Social Security revenues. That shortfall is being made up by the program trust fund, which accumulated over the past four decades. But unless federal policymakers take action, the trust fund will run out in 2033, and Social Security will be able to pay only about 80 percent of scheduled benefits." "The trust funds are scheduled to be depleted in 2033"that's 10 years away from now," Jason Fichtner, VP and chief economist at the Washington-based think tank Bipartisan Policy Center, told Newsweek. read more
Former President Donald Trump's 2024 fundraising has been turbocharged by his indictment, according to new figures provided by his campaign. Trump raised a combined $18.8 million in the first quarter through his joint fundraising committee and his campaign, the latter of which is required to report its first-quarter financial activity on Saturday.
President Biden signed an executive order in 2022 to research a central bank digital currency, but the U.S. government has not stated any plans to create one Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is proposing a new law for his state that would pre-emptively ban the use of a central bank digital currency, also known as a CBDC. DeSantis said in a press release on Monday that his push to ban CBDCs aims to "protect Florida consumers and businesses from the reckless adoption of a 'centralized digital dollar' which will stifle innovation and promote government-sanctioned surveillance. Florida will not side with economic central planners."
Unlike Trumpy's "mentors" who were all fired, indicted, currently in prison, or fighting to stay out of prison.

Yeah, Hillary really looked up to war criminals and eugenicists who sterilized women of color who couldn't read and write. You should be proud.
"The House voted 121-23 to suspend the attorney general and refer him to the Senate for trial on charges of bribery"
Sounds like Republicans just doing their jobs.
Of course, Democrats would bitch if you hung them with a new rope.
Democrats spent 4 years derailing the country while Trump was president. Muller, Impeachment #1 and #2. And these clowns expect to get everything they want now?
Tulsi was right - GTFO now.
LMAO. You think flat earth is funny, Hank Johnson (D) thinks Guam will tip over and sink if too many people move toward the edge at one time.
Facts don't care about your feelings.

What facts. What cop got murdered and who was charged with said murder?
This should be easy for you.
"The timing of the "dress rehearsal" and the moving of boxes was an indication of possible obstruction, the sources told the Post."
Any candidate who says they will pardon Jan. 6 defendants is not qualified to be President.

That's really weird. Ashley Biden grew up in the Catholic Church and not what she had to say about the subject of grooming.
Would Sotomayor be accused of wrongdoing since she took vacations paid for by the ACLU who happened to have cases in front of the SCOTUS all-the-dam-time?
What mechanism is there for making trump pay her the damages?

Likely not much. I mean, they had to extend the SOL just to get the case in court. At this point, it's mostly just theatre.

Your -------- is accusing me of a felony? No, what you're doing is accusing a black man of being a felon because of the color of his skin. Nice try, racist. You have proven who you are several times on this thread and it's too late to switch horses. Maybe go shack up with LEGALLYYOURDEAD. Maybe you can get that loser to relieve you.
Trump will win the primary and if he chooses the right running mate, you will get 4 more years of the Trump brand.
I'm hoping he chooses someone like Byron Donalds. It will be a ballot harvester's nightmare.
