Big Bucks to Heat Your Home This Winter
Next Problem!
While the price of gasoline is dropping steadily, Nat gas futures have hit their highest price in 14 years, up 525% since June 2020. The spike is partly a result of surging demand from power plants as Americans turn up the AC amid a sweltering summer. Europe’s energy crisis is also pushing prices higher, with the U.S. increasing exports of liquified natural gas to the continent to offset Russia’s shutoff.
Lets hope for a warm winter.
We’re Paying Big Bucks to Have Fun
Post-Covid demand is fueling the entertainment industry as summer comes to an end — We’re paying big bucks to have fun!
“There are not strong enough words to con­vey how well it’s go­ing in Ve­gas for us,” Ceaesars Entertainment CEO Thomas Reeg tells the Wall Street Journal.
Cae­sars saw 97% oc­cupancy in Las Ve­gas last quar­ter, and book­ings show con­tin­ued de­mand on the hori­zon. Peo­ple are re­turn­ing to Las Ve­gas at lev­els not seen since be­fore the pan­demic, and there is a no­tice­able uptick in in­ternational trav­el­ers, says Reeg.
Walt Dis­ney re­cent quar­ter was the best ever for sales in its parks.
European travel is soaring as the dollar and Euro are at parity or below.
The sum­mer box of­fice through last week, led by ‘Top Gun Maverick’ sold about $3.03 bil­lion worth of tick­ets more than dou­ble last year’s numbers. Disney and Sony are rereleasing “Rogue One,” “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and “Avatar” in theaters.
Enjoy the end of summer!
Cheney Loses, Focuses on Trump Defeat
Af­ter be­ing de­feated in her Wyoming Re­pub­li­can pri­mary, Congresswoman Liz Ch­eney says she will fo­cus on stop­ping Don­ald Trump from hold­ing a pow­er­ful gov­ern­ment of­fice again. Cheney does not rule out running for President.
Cheney who since the Capitol riots has become the Republican Party’s most forceful critic of Trump, has been ousted from her House seat by Trump-backed Harriet Hageman.
Hageman, a lawyer with little political following before she was lifted by Trump’s endorsement, trounced Cheney, by more than 30 percentage points.
In Alaska, Trump-backed Sarah Palin will be on the ballot in November’s general election after the former governor of Alaska and ex-vice-presidential candidate clinched one of four spots vying for a seat in the House.
Violence Feared Folllowing Mar-A-Lago Search
Search Warrant Released
Search Warrant Released
The FBI and Department of Homeland Security are warning of an increase in violent threats following a search of Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago home.
We now know FBI agents were searching for classified documents when feds raided the former President’s mansion as part of an investigation into possible violations of the Espionage Act and other laws, according to this search warrant (above) made public Friday.
The FBI seized multiple sets of documents, files marked as top secret and meant to be viewed only in secure government facilities, according to the warrant. The search was carried out as part of the government’s effort to account for documents reportedly related to some of the most highly classified programs run by the U.S.
It comes after Attorney General Merrick Garland asked a judge to unseal the warrant used in the search saying he personally approved of the decision to execute the warrant. Trump later said he wouldn’t oppose the release of the court documents.
Trump of course could have just released them on his own.
AG Garland also rebutting what he calls “unfounded attacks” from Trumpworld on the FBI in the wake of the search.“I will not stand by silently when their integrity is unfairly attacked,” Garland said. “The men and women of the FBI and the Justice Department are dedicated, patriotic public servants.”
BTW: Garland spoke on the same day that law enforcement officers shot and killed a man who they said tried to break into the F.B.I.’s Cincinnati office. Investigators reportedly looking into whether he had ties to extremist groups, including one that participated in the January 6th attack on the Capitol.
Trump supporters are issuing death threats against the judge who signed off on the warrant, and a service at his synagogue was reportedly canceled because of the security risk. 
All this coming after Trump took the fifth under questioning from the New York attorney general. Trump choosing not to answer questions about his business practices, just days after his Mar-a-Lago estate was searched by the FBI.
>Oh yea remember this Trump quote from 2016:
“You see the mob takes the Fifth," Trump said during one rally in Iowa. "If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?"
Specifically, the law in question — Section 2071 of Title 18 of the United States Code — makes it a crime if someone who has custody of government documents or records “willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies or destroys” them.
If convicted, defendants can be fined or sentenced to prison for up to three years. In addition, the statute says, if they are currently in a federal office, they “shall forfeit” that office, and they shall “be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.”
On its face, then, if Trump were to be charged and convicted of removing, concealing or destroying government records, he would seem to be ineligible to become president again.

The economy contracted for the second straight quarter from April to June, hitting a widely accepted rule of thumb for a recession, even as jobs are plentiful.
  • GisermanGroup Translator: Recessionis when the economy shows signs of slowing and starts shrinking. Some say that happens when the value of goods and services produced, known as the gross domestically product, declines for two consecutive quarters. The official arbiter of recessions is the National Bureau of Economic Research, a collection of economists who place dates on when recessions begin and end.
Brandon Daniels, tells Cavuto a recession is coming - the only questions how big will it be, and how long will it last:

Time to Go
David Gergen, who has worked for 4 presidents, Democrats and Republicans, says it’s time for the current generation of political leaders to step aside, and give younger people a chance to fix the mess.
Gergen says President Biden’s time in the White House “should end with this term “, and both Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should “leave their positions.”
Gergen telling CBS, “If this is the job they say that they’re doing so well, I think most people in the country would disagree with that. Our problem is we’ve had too many leadership failures, not too many successes”.
Gergen talks about the current state of national politics in his new book, “Hearts Touched With Fire: How Great Leaders Are Made.

WARNING Graphic: War Crimes in Ukraine
Russia launched a missile attack on Ukraine’s key grain-exporting port of Odessa hours after signing an international agreement to lift its blockade of the Black Sea coastline and allow for the transport of grain and other foodstuffs necessary to alleviate a looming global food crisis.
Sweden and Finland jointly submitted their applications for NATO membership Wednesday. If approved, the move will “fundamentally transform the security landscape … and give the alliance a valuable edge against Russia,” said The Wall Street Journal. It could take between four and 12 months to materialize.
The weeks-long siege of the Azovstal steel plant in the southern Ukrainian city of Mariupol is over. More than 250 Ukrainian soldiers — dozens of them severely wounded — surrendered and have been transported to Russian-held towns.
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell led a delegation of Republican senators on an unannounced visit to Kyiv. They met with President Zelensky and other leaders pledging to help.
McDonald’s pulling out of Russia after more than 30 years of operation in the country, stepping up the corporate response to the invasion of Ukraine. The departure carries huge symbolic as well as economic weight because the fast-food chain was one of the first Western brands to set up shop in Russia when it opened a branch in Pushkin Square, Moscow, in 1990, just before the fall of the Soviet Union.
Ukrainian officials say a mass grave site in a village outside the besieged southern city of Mariupol could contain as many as 9,000 bodies. The site was identified by satellite imagery.
Russian forces withdrawing from Kyiv left behind the bodies of more than 900 slaughtered Ukraine civilians, authorities claimed Friday.
Footage taken by the Ukrainian military shortly after Russian forces abandoned Bucha showed streets littered with bodies of civilians, some of them with their hands tied.
