I know for a fact that the US military is deploying some reservists to Romania to train European soldiers. The reservists have been told that the war will escalate, and as a soldier told me, “things are getting really bad over there.” They will be training the Europeans to fight against Russians for at least six months. NATO is constructing a battlefield in Romania for this extensive training. The Cincu military training facility already exists but is undergoing a massive expansion.
This is precisely what Russia feared long before entering Ukraine. I reported that Russia knows it is fighting the West and not simply Ukraine. NATO has increased its presence around Eastern Europe this year and has no plans to de-escalate the situation. There are over 40,000 troops on the ground across Eastern Europe, and more are set to arrive. In fact, NATO will establish four additional “multinational battle groups” in Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, and Bulgaria.
Colonel Vincent Minguet, the commander of the NATO Combat Group in Romania, said the plan is for “the creation of a permanent, stronger battalion, with more heavy weapons, to prevent any aggression or any destabilization in Romania.” Alarmingly, Minguet believes that training will last for four or five years. They are planning for a long-term ongoing battle fought among numerous nations, aka a world war.

Tucker Carlson accurately outlined the most likely suspect of the sabotage against Russia’s Nord Stream I and II pipeline today. When you consider the media blitz by Joe Biden’s National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan, last weekend (ABC, CNN, NBC and CBS); specifically pointing out the U.S. position against Russia; it is almost a certainty that U.S. action was behind the underwater detonation of explosives to take out Nord Stream pipeline system.

Biden/Harris admin paint a rosy picture of a rebounding economy, secure borders, and freedom. But Americans live in the real world: struggling with inflation and basic needs. Soldiers going on food stamps. Historic illegal immigration. People unsafe in their own community. This is the real America those in power created.

New York State Supreme Court Judge Lyle Frank ruled that it was unconstitutional to fire police officers for refusing the COVID vaccine. The Police Benevolent Association (PBA) sued the state of New York and won – all police officers who were fired for refusing the vaccine will be rehired.
The PBA represents 50,000 retired and active police officers in the NYPD. Disgraced former mayor Bill de Blasio imposed the vaccine mandate at a time when 68% of the force was unvaccinated. Mayor Eric Adams was no better as he fired nearly 1,500 city workers over failure to comply. That includes workers in short supply such as school teachers. Adams intends to keep the requirement in place for public workers, but organizations are fighting back.
“This decision confirms what we have said from the start: the vaccine mandate was an improper infringement on our members’ right to make personal medical decisions in consultation with their own health care professionals,” PBA President Patrick Lynch said in a statement. “We will continue to fight to protect those rights.” Others now want the same protections. “It’s a double standard to not apply the same to our cops, firefighters, teachers and sanitation workers,” Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis stated, citing that Biden himself said the pandemic was over.
Private sector employees in New York are free from vaccine mandates. Children may now attend school without the useless vaccine. It is only a matter of time before the public sector follows as the government has milked the COVID cow dry.

Tucker Carlson used his opening monologue tonight to discuss the era of The Great Pretending, the disconnect between the ideology driven goals of the politicians and the people they are supposed to represent.
Using Giorgia Meloni as an example of a person who refused to play the pretending game, Carlson notes how Meloni won an easy victory by speaking plain truth to the Italian electorate. WATCH:

Many people believe the people who are in charge of the economic policies destroying the middle-class have no idea how the Main Street economy actually works. I disagree, I believe they know exactly what they are doing and why they are doing it.
From one perspective, inflation is a statistic that comes from a bureaucratic system quantifying prices. They have no concept of how policy-driven price increases hurt consumers or working-class families. Everything in their sphere is academic and esoteric.
However, that said, those who have designed policy know there are benefits to inflation, like lowering economic activity that supports their lowered energy production policies. Inflation also helps them pay their way out of the spending they create that drives the inflation. Make money worth less and debt is lessened, or so the theory is told.
Joe Biden made remarks today that “inflation” as he looks at it, is defined as the amount of money in a paycheck. WATCH:

A new report by the Heritage Foundation claims that the average American had lost over $4,200 in annual income since Biden was sworn in due to rate hikes and inflation. They clearly are not factoring in retirement accounts or other investments, as most have lost substantially more.
Consumer prices are up 12.7% since January 2021, equating to each American losing $3,000 in purchasing power. The foundation estimates that the higher cost of borrowing has cost Americans another $1,200 annually. Mortgages have doubled, consumer debt is rising, and every area of life costs substantially more.
EJ Antoni of the foundation points out that Biden failed to act as inflation began to rise and pushed Congress to continue spending. The Fed miscalculated the situation and called the situation “transitory” while allowing the printing press to roll. Both Biden and the Fed attempted to dismiss inflation to avoid responsibility. Antoni stated:
“This financial catastrophe for American families is the direct result of a president and Congress addicted to spending our money, combined with a Federal Reserve compliantly enabling this addiction by printing more dollars. Washington recklessly spent trillions of dollars it did not have and paid for it with newly printed money, causing rampant inflation that has destroyed people’s purchasing power and jeopardized Americans’ financial futures.”
All gains under the Trump era have been erased in less than two years. Biden began paying people to sit at home and not work when he took office. Thousands were forced to leave their jobs due to COVID mandates. When people went back to work, the current administration led the public to believe that they were doing well due to higher wages, when in reality, inflation consumed any gains.
Biden eliminated America’s energy independence and created an energy crisis domestically that did not previously exist. Biden put America in direct confrontation with Russia and continues to funnel billions through Ukraine when some American cities do not even have clean drinking water. The $4,200 estimate is extremely low, considering that major US indexes are significantly down. Simply put, we are all worse off under the Biden Administration.
