Senator Joe Manchin may be the deciding vote in the most massive legislation our nation has ever seen, and judging by his latest statement it appears he’s siding, at least in part, with fiscal responsibility rather than Modern Monetary Theory. I’ll explain what his statement really means, but let’s read it all first:
Every Member of Congress has a solemn duty to vote for what they believe is best for the country and the American people, not their party. Respectfully, as I have said for months, I can’t support $3.5 trillion more in spending when we have already spent $5.4 trillion since last March. At some point, all of us, regardless of party must ask the simple question – how much is enough?
What I have made clear to the President and Democratic leaders is that spending trillions more

DEL RIO, Texas — Many Haitian migrants camped in a small Texas border town are being released in the United States, two U.S. officials said, undercutting the Biden administration’s public statements that the thousands in the camp faced immediate expulsion.
Haitians have been freed on a “very, very large scale” in recent days, according to one U.S. official who put the figure in the thousands. The official, with direct knowledge of operations who was not authorized to discuss the matter Tuesday and thus spoke on condition of anonymity

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Mayor Lori Beetlejuice pitched a pilot program Monday giving $500 monthly payments to 5,000 low-income households, part of the city’s proposed $16.7 billion spending plan that relies on an infusion of federal relief funds to close budget gaps for several years.
Beetlejuice, a first-term Democrat, characterized the proposed $31.5 million cash assistance program as a way to help “hard-hit, low income households in need of additional economic stability.” The payments would last a year.

U.S. stock futures began the week deeply in the red as investors continued to move to the sidelines in September amid several emerging risks for the market.
Futures on the Dow Jones Industrial average lost 535 points, or 1.6%. S&P 500 futures fell 1.3%. Nasdaq 100 futures dropped 1.1%.
There were a number of reasons for the sell-off:

Michael Mullen, former chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, on Sunday said there was nothing abnormal about the reported conversations between Gen. Mark Milley and his counterparts in China.
According to authors Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, Milley reached out to China in the waning days of the Trump administration, attempting to reduce tensions by assuring China that no American attack was imminent — and asking that China not do anything without consulting the U.S. military leadership.

Liquidity injections are like a drug, and the financial markets just can’t get enough of them. But as they were endlessly juicing the stock market, officials at the Federal Reserve broke one of the cardinal rules of drug dealing. You never get high on your own supply. It turns out that quite a few of the big dogs over at the Fed have very large investments which greatly benefitted from all of the cash that the Federal Reserve was endlessly pumping into the marketplace. If that sounds “extremely corrupt” to you, that is because it is extremely corrupt, and it is another example that shows why the Federal Reserve should be completely abolished.
Earlier this week, the entire nation was stunned when news of this scandal first started to break…
Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell directed staff to review the central bank’s ethics rules for appropriate financial activities after disclosures that several senior central bank officials made multiple multimillion-dollar stock trades in 2020, while others held significant investments.
That sounds really bad, right?
But then more of the specific details started coming out and it got even worse…
Powell held between $1.25 million and $2.5 million of municipal bonds in family trusts over which he
It has been the project of the political left for quite some time to convince Americans that there is nothing exceptional about their country. To "fundamentally transform" a culture, you must first poison the roots of what has already been growing. So for a century, Marxists have disparaged American history as steeped in genocide, imperialism, and avarice. They have exploited the imagery of virtue and vice to convince moral people that their nation rose from immorality. This has reached its logical apex with the historically illiterate 1619 Project, supported by elite news publications and academic institutions, reimagining America's birth as bathed not in liberty, but rather enslavement.
Killing American history is not just a matter of destroying our collective identity as Americans, but also the vehicle for undermining notions of personal freedom. Barack Obama famously revealed how little he understood about the United States when he mocked the idea of "exceptionalism" altogether: "I believe in American exceptionalism," he said after becoming president, "just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism."

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has ordered a review of ethics rules for the central bank after an outcry over officials owning individual securities.
CNBC found Powell owned municipal bonds of the same type bought by the Fed during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.
Two regional Fed presidents likewise owned assets of the same type the Fed was buying as the coronavirus threatened the U.S. economy’s health.
