Cargo volumes at the Port of New York and New Jersey fell 21% YoY to 662,740 TEUs in August as the seaport adjusts to lower retail volumes.

The World Economic Forum (WEF) has unveiled the “next crisis” that will strip billions of citizens around the globe of their freedoms.

The WEF has revealed that a “water crisis” is among the “coming attractions” that will advance the unelected organization’s “global governance.”

WEF “agenda contributor” Mariana Mazzucato, who helps to plot the agenda for the unelected body of globalist elites, admitted during a panel discussion that “climate change” is “too abstract” for people to understand.

You know gas prices are out of control when a pro athlete who just signed a $145 million contract starts to complain.

Chad Prather plays a clip of Miami Heat superstar Jimmy Butler, aka “Jimmy Buckets,” filling up his Bugatti in California.

When the pump stops, the screen reads “$142.94.”

“This is highway f****** robbery,” Butler says, gawking at the numbers on the screen.

“You think if I go in there and tell them that I put the wrong gas in here, they’d give me a refund?”

“California’s brutal,” says Chad.


It has been widely reported that blue states are suffering decline. Numerous residents, and businesses, have fled these Democrat-run states. Often the reasons include rising costs of living, high taxes, and unchecked crime.

Joe opportunities are seemingly becoming few and far between, for those who live in these states. Far-left policies have put a strain on businesses large and small.

One blue state governor just signed a bill that Democrats claim is a big win for workers. But will it instead lead to major problems?


The EU launched the first phase an emissions tariff scheme on Sunday, with a planned import tax on steel, aluminum, cement and fertilisers, as part of its bid to become a climate-neutral region.

During the first phase, until 2026, Brussels does not plan to collect any CO2 emissions charges at the border. Until then the system will collect data on carbon-intensive imports.

EU importers are now obliged to report the greenhouse gas emissions embedded in the production of imported iron, steel, aluminium, cement, electricity, fertilisers and hydrogen.

Biden Signs Stopgap Bill To Stop Government Shutdown MikeRivero Mon, 10/02/2023 - 08:27

President Joe Biden signed legislation to extend government funding for 45 days in efforts to avert government shutdown.

On Saturday, Biden signed into law a “stopgap package” passed by Congress just hours before a vital midnight deadline when funding for federal agencies was set to expire.

The Senate passed the bill on Saturday evening, a day after the House dramatically changed course and backed a bipartisan bill to extend government funding following days of uncertainty over whether a shutdown could be avoided.

Always lost in the contentious modern debate over the ideal tax levels is the forgotten fact that the U.S. Constitution -- a document which all politicians solemnly pledge to uphold and defend -- does not even permit a tax on labor. As hard as it may be for contemporary Americans to even imagine, it was little more than a single very long lifetime ago that no American, rich, poor, or in-between, paid any income tax, at all!
