# Border / Immigration
Why we should abandon the concept of the ‘climate refugee’: When climate change is used to explain migration, social inequality is naturalised.
Why there’s really no such thing as a ‘climate refugee’: When we use the impacts of climate change to explain migration, we only tell half the story, and obscure how power, race, and social inequalities are at play.
# Covid / Pandemics / Biologicals
The Rockefeller Foundation Recruits Scientists to Psychoanalyze those who Reject Covid Genic Sera for Growing the Vaccination Worldwide: The Rockefeller Foundation has disclosed that it (along with other non-profits) has been pouring millions of dollars into a behavioural science project meant to understand why large groups of people around the world refuse to take the jab. This is yet another indication that the covid vaccination agenda of globalist institutions did not do quite as well as they had originally hoped.
# Economy / Finance / Trade
Wall Street Is Using Your Money to Buy Virtue; Don’t Let Them: Wall Street elites have been pushing the adoption of corporate metrics, referred to as environmental, social and governance (ESG), to assess how much good or bad a company is bringing to society. Interestingly, only the far-left socialist causes qualify as “good.”
Nearly $30K Vanished From the HOA’s Account. The State Can’t Investigate the Management Company. Community association managers run most of Colorado’s 10,000 homeowners associations, but state regulators no longer have the authority to look into complaints about unexplained price hikes, shadowy elections or fraud. Homeowners pay the price.
Behind the ‘Economic Policy’ Façade, It’s Class War: Insiders discuss how the government should respond to economic problems in ways that boost employers’ profits even if at employees’ or the public’s expense. Insiders express their preferred solutions in that nicely neutered term: ‘policies.’
Climate Costs Are Not ‘Inflation’: Climate disruption will raise prices to consumers. The Fed, seconded by orthodox economists, misunderstands what’s happening, needlessly adding to economic pain. Economists need to fundamentally change the way they comprehend inflation. The reason is climate change. Many items in the household budget, like food, that have been relatively cheap, will become more expensive.
Why Obama-Era Economists Are So Mad About Student Debt Relief: It exposes their failed mortgage debt relief policies after the Great Recession.
59 percent in US living paycheck to paycheck as corporate profits surge to all-time highs: “A large share of consumers are essentially living on the razor’s edge.” Many were unable to afford an emergency expense of $400, all while the country’s corporations enjoy record-shattering profits.
# Education / Schools
Ex-Schools Chief Charged With Kidnapping Two Children: William J. Morrison III lost his superintendent job after cops found crack in his car.
Why Talk about Loans? On island USA, we are debating whether it is unfair and unjust to forgive some college loans. We are oblivious to the rest of the planet, where college education in developed countries is of course free. We have long considered our colleges and universities citadels of freedom, where the rule of reason prevails. Now both the process of freedom and the rule of reason are under attack. At the same time, our colleges are under pressure to collapse their educational standards, in the misguided belief that this would promote “opportunity.”
# Employment / Labor
First Solar says it will spend up to $1.2 billion to expand U.S. production: The solar panel maker will build a factory in the Southeast and expand three Ohio plants, creating nearly 1,000 jobs. Money is a sticking point in climate-change negotiations around the world. As economists warn that limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius will cost many more trillions than anticipated, WSJ looks at how the funds could be spent, and who would pay.
A Tax Credit Was Meant to Help Marginalized Workers Get Permanent Jobs. Instead, it’s Subsidizing Temp Work. The government gives hundreds of millions of dollars in Work Opportunity Tax Credits to temp agencies, even if the jobs they offer don’t lead to permanent employment. Many top recipients of the credit have long records of labor violations.
# Energy / Pipelines / Mining / Chemicals / Global
Russia Shuts Off Nord Stream 1 Pipeline Again: International leaders and energy officials believe that Russia is weaponizing its gas supply in retaliation for European sanctions. Russia has stopped the flow of gas via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline to Europe, citing the need to carry out repairs, in a move that has heightened already acute nervousness over the reliability of winter energy supplies.

U.S. Has Cut Water Supplies for 7 States During Climate-Induced Drought: Water rights activists have long called for more equitable water distribution in areas with dwindling supply.
The fight to save the last tree standing: There are trees so rare that only a single specimen remains. Scientists protect their seeds like rare jewels, use ladders and brushes to gingerly collect pollen for hand fertilization, and wait years for a single precious flower. But there are more threatened tree species than there are restoration projects. And climate change is altering ecosystems so fundamentally that some trees will never be able to thrive in their natural homes again.
Scorching Death Valley Is Poised to Shatter New Heat Record: Meteorologists say those in or around Las Vegas need to be careful outside, as unbearable heat sweeps the region. Weekend temperatures soared above 120 degrees in Death Valley, shattering a 101 year old record set in 1921.

CNN legal analyst responds to FBI filing on Mar-a-Lago docs: “This is a national security nightmare,” Honig said, “to have documents of this level of sensitivity and classification splayed out on the floor of a hotel, I think the visual is quite visceral, and packs a punch, and really shows you what those agents found.”

Civil Rights in America: Racial Voting Rights: Taking this into account, the framework recommended that a National Historic Landmarks theme study be prepared to identify sites that may be nationally significant, and that the study be based on provisions of the 1960s civil rights acts. These include the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (covering voting rights, equal employment, public accommodations, and school desegregation enforcement), the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Fair Housing Act of 1968.

What a Second Trump Term Would Mean for the World: Think of his reelection as a pincer movement, an attack on the international order from two sides.

U.S. alliances would likely crumble, the global economy would close, and democracy and human rights would be in rapid retreat.

Alabama Hides the Horrors of Its Executions by Classifying Them as Homicides: The recent state-sanctioned murder of Joe James may be the longest execution in U.S. history, but it’s not an outlier. In response to horrifying spectacles, states have drawn up new execution protocols that only allow witnesses in once the IV line has been set. People condemned to die by lethal injection are now effectively executed twice: first the torturous procedure behind closed doors, then the theatrical performance for witnesses.

Breakthrough results in developing an oral insulin tablet: A team of University of British Columbia researchers working on developing oral insulin tablets as a replacement for daily insulin injections have made a game-changing discovery.
