you talking about the market reaction to the pipeline cancellation doesn’t mean that inflation resulted from it directly. Someone has to get rich, right?

Denis, let’s agree to disagree, and hopefully we’ll both live to see another day :pray:

Thank you, Jen.

Congress congress congress

American-made Javelin and Stinger missiles are heading to Ukraine. At least 20 members of Congress personally invest in the defense contractors behind them.

  • Defense contractors Lockheed Martin and Raytheon manufacture weapons that are heading to Ukraine.
  • At least 19 members of Congress or their spouses hold stock in these companies.
  • Some lawmakers sit on congressional committees that regulate defense policy.

Some members of Congress stand to personally profit off Russia’s war on Ukraine.

The stock holdings by members of Congress come as the US is preparing to send billions of dollars in defense aid to Ukraine. Both companies’ stock — especially that of Lockheed Martin — have risen since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24.

Among those investing in the defense contractors is Republican Rep. John Rutherford of Florida who purchased between $1,001 and $15,000 worth of Raytheon stock on February 24 — the day Russia invaded Ukraine.

Another Republican, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, bought between $1,001 and $15,000 in Lockheed Martin shares on February 22.

Other federal lawmakers have traded stock in the defense contractors in recent weeks. Republican Rep. Diana Harshbarger of Tennessee and her husband made three separate Raytheon trades worth up to $15,000 and Democratic Rep. Lois Frankel of Florida sold up to $15,000 in Lockheed Martin stock but retained shares in the company.

More money on the way?

A shortage of baby formula has provoked misleading partisan claims that suggest President Joe Biden is responsible for the “bare shelves.” But the shortage has been caused by a recall and plant shutdown by a major manufacturer and ongoing supply-chain issues due to the pandemic.

The U.S. shortage has been driven largely by a recall from Abbott Nutrition, a major manufacturer of formula, and ongoing supply-chain issues exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, according to experts.

Recall Following Illness and Deaths of Infants

Between September and January, four infants became ill with Cronobacter, a bacterial infection, and two of them died. The Food and Drug Administration is still investigating.

Strict Regulations on Baby Formula

“Since the shutdown of Abbott Nutrition’s Sturgis facility … the remaining baby formula manufacturers have struggled to quickly increase production because their operations were planned and designed to produce a steady level of product based on their pre-production projections of consumer demand,” Kevin Lyons, a professor at Rutgers Business School with expertise in supply chain management, told FactCheck.org in an email.

Pandemic Supply-Chain Challenges

Supply-chain problems include raw material and labor shortages, Lyons said, as well as suppliers and consumers making panic purchases.

Retired police officer who tried to stop Buffalo supermarket shooting praised as a hero

אנחנו חיים בעולם מלא ברע

Fox News has the right to its own agenda, just as MSNBC or CNN or CBS has the right to theirs. Everyone spins in their own way. Everyone orders the news based on their conception of what is news.

The Great Replacement Theory" has been a favorite talking point of Fox News superstar Tucker Carlson for several years now.

It’s a liberal plot, “to change the racial mix of the country,” Carlson told viewers on Sept. 22, 2021. "To reduce the political power of people whose ancestors lived here, and dramatically increase the proportion of Americans arrived from the third world…In political terms, this is called the policy of Great Replacement, the replacement of legacy Americans with more obedient people from far-away countries."

Other Fox News hosts, including Laura Ingraham, have also flirted with this idea.

There are any number of sane responses to this: from pointing out that non-white people have been part of this country exactly as long as Northern Europeans — African Americans are “legacy Americans” if anyone is — and that, with the exception of Indigenous peoples, literally everyone in this country is the descendent of an immigrant culture.

In the case of the Buffalo tragedy, is Fox News AWOL? And why?

Buffalo shooting is an ugly culmination of California’s ‘great replacement’ theory

That’s when Republicans, desperate to hold on to political power, were spreading fear and paranoia about millions of Mexican immigrants wanting — how dare them! — resources and rights, and the inevitable decline of the state’s white population.

Tribalism is the biological loophole that many politicians have banked on for a long time: tapping into our fears and tribal instincts. Some examples are Nazism, the Ku Klux Klan, religious wars and the Dark Ages. The typical pattern is to give the other humans a different label than us, and say they are going to harm us or our resources, and to turn the other group into a concept. It does not have to necessarily be race or nationality, which are used very often. It can be any real or imaginary difference: liberals, conservatives, Middle Easterners, white men, the right, the left, Muslims, Jews, Christians, Sikhs. The list goes on and on.

When building tribal boundaries between “us” and “them,” some politicians have managed very well to create virtual groups of people that do not communicate and hate without even knowing each other: This is the human animal in action!
