[via Bongino] Many consumers have taken to regularly shopping from their computers and mobile devices instead, and while many websites are also selling out as fast as inventory is posted, the days of online ammo sales could be coming to an end.
It could also spell the end of private sales of ammunition.
House Resolution (H.R.) 1207 — Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act of 2021 — was introduced earlier this year by Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.). It would require a fare-to-face purchase of ammunition, require licensing of "ammunition dealers" and require reporting of bulk purchases of ammunition. As the popular meme asks "If they treat us this bad when we're armed, how will they treat us when they've disarmed us?"
[MARKETWATCH] Consumer prices rose in March for the fourth month in a row and the pace of inflation hit the highest level in two and a half years, underscoring new pressures emerging on the economy as the U.S. recovers from the coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague) ...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men... pandemic.The consumer price index jumped 0.6% last month, the government said Tuesday, spearheaded by the rising cost of oil. Economists polled by Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal had forecast a 0.5% increase in the CPI.
The rate of inflation over the past year shot up to 2.6% from 1.7% in the prior month, marking the highest level since the fall of 2018. If there's a total of $1.2 trillion in circulation, and the govt prints another $1.9 trillion, you kinda expect a bit of inflation, don't you?
Logic is racist, Fred. We can’t be having that kind of thing when precious feelings are involved.
Scary. 0.76% inflation last month is annualized to 12.8% yearly inflation. While it is unlikely to continue that high, energy price increases have yet to ripple through the production chain. Combined with with dumping 2X normal Federal spending dollars into the economy and inflation can easily reach 5-6%.
If interest rates match inflation, a 5% interest on $26 billion (near $30 trillion end of 2021) will cost 30% of federal tax revenue just to pay interest in the next few years.
Combine this with the bulk of baby boomers retiring, increasing the demand on the Federal budget and Americans will be hit with a vicious cycle unseen since the founding of the republic.
[BREITBART] Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer ...Senator-for-life from New York, renowned for his love of standing in front of cameras and microphones. Schumer has been a professional politician since 1975, when disco was in flower, which is 45.35379 years. Senate minority leader as of 2017... (D-NY) said Monday on MSNBC’s "All In" that the Democrats would try and work with Republicans but not by "sacrificing the bold, progressive change that America demands."
Schumer said, "The question that everyone’s asking is why is there such a dichotomy between the Republican voters, electorate, and the Republican Senators. For instance, 60% of Republicans think the ARP, the American Rescue Plan, the most comprehensive progressive piece of legislation we passed in decades, is a good thing. How many Republican Senators voted for it? Zero. Why? It’s because Trump still controls them. They’re still afraid of him. He wants nothing to succeed. He’s sort of a — nihilist is too strong a word. He’s an egotistical man who wants to bring everything down because he lost, and so you have this division. It ends up hurting the Republican Party, but it also hurts America. Now we’re not going to let that stop us. We’d always prefer to work with the Republicans when we can, but if with can’t, just as we just showed in the American Rescue Plan, if they’re not with us, we’re going to get it done, and the American people will be on our side."
He added, "We always prefer our Republicans to work with us but only to produce big, bold action. We’re not going to repeat the mistakes of 2009 and 2010, where they dragged things out for a year and a half, and then we got one good thing done but certainly not enough, and they cut that stimulus bill, the original ARA bill, by so much that the recession dragged on for years. We’re not repeating that mistake. If they will join with us, of course, we’ll sit down and talk with them and see if they have this suggestion or that. But not at sacrificing the bold, progressive change that America demands and America needs, and we’re going to get it done."
[BREITBART] Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) reacted to the police-involved shooting death of Daunte Wright, calling for an end to "policing, incarceration, and militarization.’"It wasn’t an accident," Tlaib wrote in a tweet regarding the death of Wright that ignited the destruction and looting of several businesses in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, late Sunday night. "Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist."
"Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence," she added. "I am done with those who condone government funded murder."
Tlaib then went one step further with her frustration and called for an end to "policing" in America, claiming the institutions across America "can’t be reformed."
"No more policing, incarceration, and militarization," Tlaib concluded in her tweet. "It can’t be reformed."
Tlaib also retweeted a tweet to her page that mocked the "accidental" death of Wright, which stated, "You spelled murder wrong again."
According to reports, Wright was allegedly taking off in his car after an attempt to arrest him when one officer at the scene shot him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Following Wright’s death, multiple violent mostly peaceful riots and storms of looters erupted into the streets, resulting in loss and damage to several businesses in the area.
