Dear Conservatives, I Apologize
My "Team" was Taken in By Full-Spectrum Propaganda

As another narrative falls apart about Jan 6, here is a full blown liberal admitting she was misled by a corrupt media and other things she initially believed before those false lies were found to be just that and this is great by her:

“I also believed wholesale so much else that has since turned out not to be as I was told it was by NPR, MSNBC and The New York Times.

I believed that stories about Hunter Biden’s laptop were Russian propaganda. Dozens of former intel officials said so. Johns Hopkins University said so. [https://sais.jhu.edu/news-press/hunt...officials-say].

“Trump specifically cited a “laptop” that contained emails allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden”, said ‘CNN Fact-Check’, with plenty of double quote marks. [https://www.cnn.com/factsfirst/polit...-b98418e4bb9c]

I believed this all — til it was debunked.

I believed that President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia — until that assertion was dropped. [https://www.americanbar.org/news/aba...nvestigation/]

I believed that President Trump was a Russian asset, because the legacy media I read, said so [https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...-spy-new-book].

I believed in the entire Steele dossier, until I didn’t, because it all fell apart. [https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-63305382].

Was there in fact an “infamous pee tape”? So many other bad things were being said about the man — why not? [https://www.businessinsider.com/chri...xists-2021-10]

I believed that Pres Trump instigated the riot at the Capitol — because I did not know that his admonition to his supporters to assemble “peacefully and patriotically” had been deleted from all of the news coverage that I read. [https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...ill-be-shield]

Because of lies such as these in legacy media — lies which I and millions of others believed — half of our nation’s electorate was smeared and delegitimized, and I myself was misled.”

Bill To Ban Child Marriage In West Virginia Defeated By Republicans


https://news.yahoo.com/bill-ban-chil...154957060.html

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A bill that would have prohibited minors from getting married in West Virginia was defeated Wednesday night in a legislative committee.

The Republican-dominated Senate Judiciary Committee rejected the bill on a 9-8 vote, a week after it passed the House of Delegates.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A bill that would have prohibited minors from getting married in West Virginia was defeated Wednesday night in a legislative committee.

The Republican-dominated Senate Judiciary Committee rejected the bill on a 9-8 vote, a week after it passed the House of Delegates.

The vote came shortly after the bill’s main sponsor, Democratic Del. Kayla Young of Kanawha County, testified briefly before the committee. She said that since 2000 there have been more than 3,600 marriages in the state involving one or more children.

Currently, children can marry as young as 16 in West Virginia with parental consent. Anyone younger than that also must get a judge’s waiver.

“For now, there will be no floor for the age of marriage in WV, endangering our kids,” Young wrote on Twitter after the vote.

In a rebuke, Cabell County Democratic Sen. Mike Woelfel reminded the committee after the vote that Wednesday was International Women’s Day.

Some of the bill’s opponents have argued that teenage marriages are a part of life in West Virginia

According to the nonprofit group Unchained At Last, which seeks to end forced and child marriage, seven states have set the minimum age for marriage at 18, all since 2018. Supporters of such legislation say it reduces domestic violence, unwanted pregnancies and improves the lives of teens.

Although recent figures are unavailable, according to the Pew Research Center, West Virginia had the highest rate of child marriages among the states in 2014, when the state’s five-year average was 7.1 marriages for every 1,000 children ages 15 to 17.

You had me until the last one. He clearly told them to go down to the Capitol and stop the counting of the electoral votes. Very blatant. He should be in jail for that if nothing else.

Re: The Most Fresh & Cordial Political Thread Ever

Absolutely no federal bailout of SVB. Incompetence at SVB and at Silicon Valley VC caused the crisis by withdrawing all their money…and now they want tax payers to pick up the tab.

Fuck silicon valley and everyone in that community who live a life in one of the wealthiest areas in the world and look down on everyone else.

Those people constantly tell everyone else how great they are, then they can fix their own problems like everyone else. Fuck them

No federal bailout

Why Trump is being called out in the Silicon Valley Bank collapse



https://news.yahoo.com/why-trump-bei...173805604.html


.Some Democrats have been blaming Trump-era regulations for Silicon Valley Bank's collapse.

.In 2018, Trump signed into law a bill that rolled back provisions in the Dodd-Frank Act and loosened oversight over banks.

Sen. Bernie Sanders said SVB's failure is a "direct result" of those rollbacks.

.Former President Donald Trump is catching heat for Silicon Valley Bank's collapse.

The reason goes back to 2018.

On Friday, regulators shut down Silicon Valley Bank following a tumultuous few days of failing to raise capital and a flood of customers withdrawing their funds from the bank. After crypto-friendly Signature Bank shut down on Sunday, as well, the US Treasury, Federal Reserve, and Financial Deposit Insurance Corporation made a controversial move by giving depositors a bailout, vowing to "fully protect" them from any financial losses. Normally, that would only be guaranteed for losses up to $250,000.

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle criticized the federal agencies' actions, but some Democrats seized on Trump's rollback of consumer protections in the Dodd-Frank Act in 2018 as a primary contributor to SVB's collapse. The rollback lessened scrutiny for banks with under $250 billion in assets, meaning the landmark, post-financial crisis law would only applied to a handful of big banks.

As it’s been established, the roll back of the Trump bipartisan bill wasn’t why the collapse happened. but the incompetence of Biden economic policies where he dismissed an inflationary signs and called it transitory, his 1.9 trillion in unnecessary spending along with the stopping of student loan payments which contributed to more inflation. So the fed and treasury responded too late to obvious inflation, caused a credit crisis with bonds.

But really, SVB are complete morons and seemed to focus more on woke bullshit, D&I than risk controls

Re: The Most Fresh & Cordial Political Thread Ever

GOP senators pushed to keep banking rules loose one week before SVB collapse




https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/g...152706948.html


The stunning events around Silicon Valley Bank of California and Signature Bank of New York come after years of moves in Washington to ease capital requirements on smaller and regional banks — including one that came just last week.

In a letter dated March 3 to Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), the ranking member of the Senate Banking Committee, and nine of his GOP colleagues expressed concern that an ongoing Federal Reserve review may go beyond a 2018 law that eased regulations on smaller banks and “may unjustly increase capital requirements and have a chilling effect on market making activities and availability of financial services.”

The letter was timed to coincide with Powell’s testimony last week before Congress and referenced a 2022 speech from Michael Barr, the Fed’s vice chair for supervision, where he discussed the Fed taking a holistic review of capital standards.

The letter pushed back against ideas for increasing the buffer that banks are required to hold in reserve to guard against losses, arguing that banks “seem to have weathered the real-life stress test of the COVID-19 pandemic well.”

Within days, the banking sector saw the second- and third-largest bank failures in history.

Of course neither of banks that failed have anything to do with this…but please continue.

Barney Frank being a director at Signature is a cherry on top. He was actually lobbying to ease restrictions on banks

And Powell should continue with a rate hike of a quarter point.
