San Francisco's new archbishop has forbidden Nancy Pelosi from taking the holy communion due to her stance on abortion.


San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone announced Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is barred from receiving Holy Communion due to her pro-abortion stance -- marking an escalation in a decades-long tension between the Roman Catholic Church and liberal Democratic politicians on abortion.

Cordileone has written to the California Democrat, informing her that she should not present herself for Holy Communion at Mass, and that priests will not distribute communion to her if she does present herself.


"A Catholic legislator who supports procured abortion, after knowing the teaching of the Church, commits a manifestly grave sin which is a cause of most serious scandal to others. Therefore, universal Church law provides that such persons Ďare not to be admitted to Holy Communion,'" he says in the letter.

"Chaos!" says Chaotic Stupid congresswoman Alexandria Donkey-Chompers about NY's new congressional maps. It's worse than I thought -- the maps put four currently serving Democrat congressmen in the same district, and they're all bitching at each other over who gets to run and who has to move.

They're also all yelling "Racism!"

Miranda Devine previews some actions which Trump has charged a lawyer with taking against the 51 dirty spymasters who ran an op against America to foist Biden on the country.

First up: They were all required to pre-clear "intelligence assessments" with their respective agencies before publishing them.

But they didn't do that when they claimed the Hunter Biden laptop had "all the earmarks of Russian disinformation," of course.

The former president has sicced uber-attorney Tim Parlatore on the Dirty 51. On Wednesday, Parlatore launched the first stage of a multi-prong strategy to make those who signed the letter pay for the damage they have wrought to freedom of the press, election integrity and the welfare of the nation.

His goal is to uncover alleged communications between the Dirty 51 and the Biden campaign.

Parlatore began by filing five letters of complaint with the agencies that formerly employed the 51, including the CIA -- which counted 43 of its former officials among the group -- the National Security Agency, the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Defense.

Each letter complains of "an egregious breach" by former agency employees "that appears to have been overlooked by your agency, as it has gone uninvestigated and certainly unpunished. Specifically, the unauthorized publication and dissemination of an intelligence assessment, purportedly based on classified information, that was used wrongfully to influence the outcome of an election."

It points out that each of the Dirty 51 was "bound by the lifelong obligation" to submit the letter to their former agencies for pre-publication security review to ensure it didn't contain classified information, a process that could take several months. The letter then would have been stamped with a disclaimer that the agency was not vouching for its accuracy.

"That would have destroyed the usefulness of the document," says Parlatore, "plus the process would have delayed it so long, it would not be useful" because the election would have been over.

...

The next step for Parlatore is to file a letter with the Federal Election Commission, requesting that the Dirty 51 letter be recorded as a campaign "in-kind contribution."

Then will come litigation against the 51 and the Biden campaign in US District Court, in pursuit of any link between Democratic operatives and the letter.

Piers Morgan's ratings hit lowest levels yet in the UK.

I'm guessing Morgan is doing some kind of deal where the does shows for both the US (Fox) and the UK (TalkTV), with some shared material and some material tailored for the local audience.

I don't know how he's doing in the US, but he's failing as hard as CNN+ in the UK.

Uncensored is struggling to keep up viewership, with an all-time low of just 10,000 tuning in on Wednesday night.

Piers returned to our screens with a bang last night, just over a year after sensationally storming off the set of Good Morning Britain.

He was hoping to 'cancel the cancel culture' in a brand-new, no holes barred weeknight show, with fiery guests such as Donald Trump and Caitlyn Jenner appearing so far.

But despite managing to draw in nearly 400,000 viewers on his debut show, new data shows his latest episode attracted its lowest figures yet.

I hate this guy.

@NPR setup a private snitch line for ratting out workers not obeying their anti-science mask rules

NPR's Snitch-a-Bitch Karen 911 line is perfect.

Two children hospitalized due to Biden's baby formula shortages.

They sadly will not be the last.

At least two children in Tennessee are being treated at the hospital due to the nationwide formula shortage.

According to WMC, neither doctors nor their families can find the formula these children need on store shelves.

Officials say both children are at Le Bonheur Childrenís Hospital in Tennessee, and they both have special medical needs and the normal formula they use is out.

"This is a crisis for us in health care," said Dr. Mark Corkins, a pediatric gastroenterologist at Le Bonheur Childrenís Hospital.

The children at risk are those with special dietary needs or allergies.

...

"This is not every child, not normal children, but literally the formula recall has led to these children requiring hospitalization," Corkins said.

Video report here.

When the Biden administration shut down the Abbott plant, they had no plan, none at all, for what would replace that production capacity.

He didn't have any plan or care what would replace the shutdown of US oil production, either, of course. At least that stupidity isn't killing babies.

That "Chicago Thinker" journalist, just a freshman at the U. of Chicago I think, grills Jen Psaki about her encouragement of "protesters" to march on the homes of Supreme Court justices.


She claims she didn't encourage the protesters, but she specifically said "I encourage them to continue doing so..."

Indirectly, it most certainly lead to killing babies if gas prices escalate to the point where we have even more shelves empty of ANY kind of food.

Worse, this will lead to significant deaths of Americans if we cannot cool our homes in the summer or heat them in the winter.

Annoying people like Christiane Amanpour were on it regularly, but they always annoyed me back then, too.

We don't buy all that many refined petroleum products, I don't think. We have a lot of refining capacity. But there is probably *some* truth to this because we do export.

Which we shouldn't. Energy products exports should occur only when we're running in surplus. We're not running in surplus, and exports should be curtailed in any energy product where we're importing to make up the difference - oil or gas.

First ingredient listed is whitefish, lots of healthy ingredients, all sourced in the US. Much cheaper than Royal Canin, too. Our dog loves it. So screw Royal Canin.

I have a buddy with a dog like that. He priced it out and it turned out (no idea if it's still true) that is was cheaper for him to buy cheap, low-quality institutional whitefish fillets and cuts from Costco's restaurant supply to feed the dog. He would order it 10 cases at a time for the price breaks and freeze it. He said he came out way ahead, even taking into account the freezer he needed to get.

88 "Chaotic Stupid" That's a heck of an alignment she's got there. Let's see what the rulebook says:

The chaotic stupid character has freedom from both the laws of civilization and the restrictive bounds of relative competence.

These characters followed their stupid whims on an individualistic path. They avoided authority, shook off societal restraints, and fell down many holes that were marked with obvious signage. These people did not believe in the order of anything not out of insight but because order is a relatively long word to spell and oh look some tasty paste.

128 Its interesting that the enormous spending and banking handouts in the Obama administration had a smaller affect on inflation. It was there, but less pronounced. I think the reasons are several:

1) The Obama administration made sure the money was in a tight closed loop: only elites, megacorps, banks, and big time stock dancers really got any kind of access to this money. It stayed in that loop.
2) There is a sort of "government insurance" system that puts aside money in case of a major banking crash and an awful lot of that money made it into this slush um, insurance fund
3) The Trump and Biden administrations handed the money out to the general public, and that drives inflation much more than the tight closed loop of money the Obama team used.

The woman who was supposedly involved is not saying anything, some "Friend" of this woman is claiming she told her about it 4 years ago, and the "friend" pumped out her hearsay story to Business Insider (which has nothing to do with Business and is a far left outlet)

Apparently there was some controversy with this woman 4 years ago, Musk laughed and said the true story was far different than what was alleged. His company ended her employment, paid her a settlement amount, and everyone signed a non-disclosure agreement. Which is pretty much the standard corporate response to a he-said, she-said distraction.

There's an old old reason why countries with a lot of unemployment, meaning a lot of men standing around causing trouble because they have nothing to do, have found it very useful to send them all off to some foreign land to win treasure or be killed. Either outcome is beneficial.

Mackay in "Extraordinary Popular Delusions" held that this was the real reason so many men were sent off to the Crusades. Everyone back home was glad to see them go.

Largely. There was massive inflation because of the Fed and Treasury cash handouts, but it was limited (mostly) to the capital markets - stocks and bonds. Real estate also soared, because it is heavy financialized, and this has knock-on effects downstream. It also "saved" a bunch of zombie companies who should be bankrupt and had all kinds of weird effects - many of which are unknown - on things downstream from the capital markets.

But what they didn't do was do helicopter drops of money onto everyone (which is totally uncontrollable instead of just largely uncontrollable) or print up a non-trivial portion of the total currency in under two years. It was the most bone-headed thing we have ever done economically. The bill cannot be paid. The only correct answer - even if COVID were as bad as was feared - was to take our chances because all of the response was unaffordable.

More than possible, but Powell also has a tool that Volcker didn't: the Fed's balance sheet. Interest needs to go up by rather a lot and that *will* cause a severe recession and catastrophic bankruptcy. There is no other choice and that's baked into the cake at this point. We have to pay for those games we've played since 2008 (really 199.

But interest is not the *only* tool this time around. The Fed's balance sheet is *huge* because of all the QE. They can sell it off and remove that money from the economy. The balance sheet is underwater (it will sell for less than they paid) and it cannot remove all of the QE, but it can remove a big chunk of it. And crush equity and bond prices in the process.

There are no good answers, and no amount of monetary discipline can really tackle consumer price inflation if we don't get energy under control.

Austrian theory informs us that the damage was done all the way back to when you start inflating the bubble. This was unsustainable for a long time and each round of stimulus made it worse when it finally hit.

So Biden got bad luck of increasing demand just as energy costs are ramping back up and there are supply chain issues. Also people are used to not working and getting paid by daddy fed. So inflation, but to have prevented it you would have to unwind 2 decades of bad policy.

You'll note something from that graph. Before the '08 crash, M0 stood at $850B. There are now over $6T dollars in existence.

The previous growth rate of M0 was a rough doubling every 10 years. Thus, M0 should stand at may $1.5T or a little better, and there are about $4.5T excess dollars in the system.

To end this inflation, that $4.5T is gonna have to yanked out. And doing that, well, Greater Depression.

Trump's strategy was essentially to keep the rabbit ahead of the fox. He was quite successful at that in general, and he did it by goosing the economy and letting energy production shoot the moon.

Then COVID happened and we did tremendous damage. Even with Brandon, we'd have inflation right now. Nowhere near as bad as it right now, but it'd be around. But Brandon's politburo decided to lock the rabbit into one room with the fox, and starved the fox before locking the door.

226 "When the Biden administration shut down the Abbott plant, they had no plan, none at all, for what would replace that production capacity.
He didn't have any plan or care what would replace the shutdown of US oil production, either, of course. At least that stupidity isn't killing babies."


Biden and his fellow idiots also have no plans for:
- Fighting inflation, especially the rising gas prices.
- Paying for all the free stuff the ever-increasing Border-crossing Free Shit Army is entitled to, by law and Exec Order.
- Phasing-in Renewable Energy Sources while phasing-out hydrocarbon sources and not having a massive electricity shortfall.
- The Ukraine War.
- Heading-off the food shortages Biden has said are coming this year.

Lack of the above plans will kill people.

227 I would like the Catholic Church to require anyone employed by the public school system to show a proof of reconciliation (for confessions related to pederasty, grooming and mortal sins of that nature) prior to receiving communion, just like it was a vax card needed for entry.

233 Inflation is just getting wound up. They can't raise interest rates, they painted themselves in a corner decades ago.

Our money has no value, other than other nations willingness to accept it. You know that. Its a fiat currency.

When it collapses - and it will - it'll be a brutally fast spiral.

Nukes might get launched, for no other reason than who owes who fiat currency.

235 I mean, I'd like for that to be true, but I don't see how Ukraine has the slightest impact on any of those areas.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor


Ukraine is a huge supplier of fertilizer which effects food prices. Ukraine also has a huge amount of farming for the rest of the world. Much of this has been taken offline.

Part of the increased energy prices are due to the Ukraine war with Russian oil "embargos" mixed with global uncertainty that always makes energy prices go up.

It's not all because of this, but it does play a big role.

243 But interest is not the *only* tool this time around. The Fed's balance sheet is *huge* because of all the QE. They can sell it off and remove that money from the economy.

Posted by: Joe Mannix (Not a cop!) at May 20, 2022 04:58 PM (DU+/6)

Yup. And growing ourselves out of it (in part) is not possible with the current catastrophic energy policy coupled with insane regulation.

Hopefully they will dump some of those assets (at a loss as you point out) and help the bottom line. But we are in for a rocky time of it.

See also the Cantillon Effect, which is about the central bank printing a bunch of money does not immediately raise prices everywhere. As was mentioned above, the previous QE rounds, staggering though they were, just keep the markets propped up, stocks, real estate, housing markets. They were "saving the system".

Also see the very related concept of "biflation". That is basically rising pricing in commodities and the shit people need, but falling prices in the shit people don't need.

257 >> They can sell it off and remove that money from the economy.

If they do that too fast, the resulting shock to prices can get out of control. Fast. Think in terms of inverse bond price to yield.

Fed starts dumping. Prices goes down. Yield go up. Market freaks and starts a selling frenzy on its own beyond what the Fed started.

The book value of the bonds on the Fed's balance drops even more, a lot more, than they intended. Fed balance sheet is now negative. Total monetary protonic reversal.

Believe it or not, the actually sneaked in a little balance sheet trick in case that every happened.

There is no money to pay for all this. They have to borrow hundreds of billions every year. The total is at least 30 trillion, which they have to pay interest on. The whole shootin match rolls over every 4 years.

They are completely fooked, and have been for quite some time. The only wonder is how so many otherwise intelligent people have not grasped this fact.

They can save the dollar, or save the markets, maybe. They can't save both.

Historically they will always "print". Always. This is a political decision, not an economic one.

About 130K Americans died in WW2, in four years. And nobody had to tell anybody about it - because it was an event that permeated the collective American Gestalt. Norman Rockwell painted about it. The Andrews Sisters sang about it. That collective effort was everywhere. It could not be ignored.

Who here believes one million Americans died from Covid in the last two years - even though very few of us know of any of them personally ?
