This Big Bank Bailout Brought to You by Donald J. Trump: And yes, this is definitely a bailout. What happened in 2018 was effectively allowing SVB and other banks to still benefit from insurance without having to pay for it. There are two key points that people should recognize about the decision to guarantee all the deposits at Silicon Valley Bank (SVB): It was a bailout, Donald Trump was the person responsible.

Stocks at several regional banks are dropping after Silicon Valley Bank was shut down. Even larger banks like Citigroup and JPMorgan Chase were affected, the New York Times reports, despite President Joe Biden’s announcement that Americans’ deposits won’t be lost after the bank failures.

Hey Teachers, Please Remain Alert to Racial Prejudice and Discrimination: That’s all being “woke” really means. I’m not sure what’s so controversial about that. How can you understand a problem if you are not allowed to name it? How can you fight injustice if you are forbidden from learning its history and connection to the present moment?
These questions are at the heart of a well-financed war against a simple term – woke-ness https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://www.commondreams.org/opinion/woke-education-is-good__;!!On18fmf1aQ!3vbpNNtYpPYuATMJ3jcl4dBzz3-QGjuHTo7cvKm8NL8WetD4OlX1eT8W7CVT84GgpnFhYzEvfTQPsuXOiNInK3gg_VICEsSt$

That drives the growth of herbaceous and shrubby vegetation, which benefits numerous animals.

America’s biggest problem is its politics, not its banks: The dramatic meltdown of Silicon Valley Bank is proving one thing for sure – the biggest systemic risk to the United States lies not in its banking system but in its polarized politics.
