Tucker Carlson: Career bureaucrats subverted justice to make sure Joe Biden won

  Tucker Carlson: Career bureaucrats subverted justice to make sure Joe Biden won Tucker Carlson highlights how career bureaucrats ignored evidence on Hunter Biden's laptop to be sure Joe Biden won the election.That was precisely the thinking behind the Democrats’ response to Hunter Biden’s laptop. They knew from the first day that the contents of that laptop were genuine. Look at what’s on there. It may be theoretically possible that some foreign intelligence service would photoshop a picture of Hunter Biden’s crotch, mostly to amuse themselves. But a 100 pictures of Hunter Biden’s crotch? Adorned with M&Ms? Nope. No Russian did that. Those were entirely real.

Despite President Joe Biden's recent warning of short-term inflation, an ongoing petition for monthly stimulus checks of $2,000 has continued to gather signatures over the past week amid a spike in COVID-19 cases.

Denver restaurant owner Stephanie Bonin created the Change.org petition last year, which calls for the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate to pass legislation that would provide families with a "$2,000 payment for adults and a $1,000 payment for kids immediately, and continuing regular checks for the duration of the crisis."

Lindsey Graham Suggests Senators Leave D.C. to Prevent Infrastructure Bill via Reconciliation

  Lindsey Graham Suggests Senators Leave D.C. to Prevent Infrastructure Bill via Reconciliation The Republican senator said "we may learn something from our Democratic friends in Texas."Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, and President Joe Biden unveiled the $3.5 trillion spending proposal last week. The massive bill would work to fund childcare, provide money for education priorities, and expand health care access to millions of Americans. But Republicans have vocally opposed the plan, raising concerns about inflation and saying the bill will make Americans dependent on the government.

The petition has drawn more than 2,695,300 signatures, with about 65,000 new supporters in the past week. It will become one of Change.org's most signed petitions if it hits its goal of 3 million signatures. Bonin is confident that it will, telling Newsweek that people sign because "we're still in uncertain times."

Support for the petition has ramped up over the past month, with about 250,000 new signatures in July, as the Delta variant continues to surge. The variant is now responsible for 83.2 percent of coronavirus infections in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The petition has been routinely updated since it was launched during the first wave of the pandemic under the administration of former President Donald Trump.

After Biden signed the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan into law earlier this year, which included the third check of $1,400, Bonin said "our country is still deeply struggling. The recovery hasn't reached many Americans." She added, "We need immediate checks and recurring payments so that we can keep our heads above water."

Governments and central banks around the world have injected record amounts of money into their economies to confront the recession set off by the pandemic, including the U.S. which has passed trillions of dollars in stimulus funding.

While government spending during a recession will usually help economic recovery, government spending during an economic expansion tends to drive up inflation. Supply shortages created by the pandemic and labor shortages have also been blamed for rising inflation risks.

Biden warned of "near-term inflation" during a CNN town hall in Cincinnati Wednesday, adding that Wall Street experts suggest it is not likely to be long term inflation.

Asian markets extend global rally as earnings trump virus worries

  Asian markets extend global rally as earnings trump virus worries Asian markets rallied Thursday as worries about the Delta variant were overshadowed by more strong earnings reports that indicated companies were faring well as the global economy emerges from last year's pandemic-induced collapse. After a painful start to the week, investors were back in the saddle after Wall Street and Europe enjoyed back-to-back rallies thanks to optimism about the outlook, and despite surging infections that have forced some governments to reimpose lockdowns or other containment measures.

"It's rational when you think about it. The cost of an automobile is kind of back to what it was before the pandemic," he said. "They're up there because, in fact, there was not much call, for example, for automobiles. All of a sudden now it's coming back."
