After they had to fire him for lying about the Poland missile strike that turns out actually was a cream missile, not a Russian missile.

For a couple hours there on the markets, the oil futures just spell. They were suddenly lying down. They said, oh, there's this huge deal because the Biden White House was taking incoming all day over this Khashoggi's widow comes out and is like, oh, how about you've killed him again?

Later this morning, we'll get an update on the nation's jobs status when the government releases the October jobs report. It's expected to show that 200,000 jobs were added to the economy last month. But CBS News business analyst shield schlesinger says, wage growth is likely to show a decrease. In October, the annual increase is likely to drop below 5% to around 4.7%. That may not be good news for workers, especially the people who are really struggling to meet this high inflation rate, but if wage growth is decelerating, it is a good sign that perhaps inflation may be peaking. A substantial hiring gain would mean wages will likely keep rising and continue to fuel inflation.

Climate Vandals Want to Destroy What They Can't Understand

Associated Press reports that the Vermeer masterpiece, the girl with the pearl earring. Of course. Climate activists attacked it with blue and liquid last week.

And they threw soup over Vincent van Gogh's masterpiece sunflowers. Okay, now I want to be clear, you are talking about works of art that are part of the treasures of western civilization. Sunflowers, I don't know what did that go for $70 million or a $170 million few years ago. These are some of the most extraordinary works in the western civilization. And I don't know if you say it in your piece, but immediately, I think to myself, the climate activists are the Taliban, the Taliban destroyed those statues of those huge Buddhist statues. It's an amazing thing when somebody is trying to destroy or deface or vandalize something that as you say in your title can not be replaced.

Now the good news is that despite the delta very into being more contagious vaccines are still effective. If the military in shows to be weaker than the delta variant, we can assume that the summer surge marks the peak of this virus of strength. In other words, If this trend holds up, the cases will start trending down by late September by mid October, and we could be in a very manageable place where infections will not be a real concern for the public. After that, we just have to treat covid as one of the 200 different diseases. Is that affect people?

I guess among the right these days definitely not a trump fan. He's written about the death of expertise and the need for experts. And one of. Tom nichols points that i think is a meritorious point. Even if you dislike. Tom nichols you can't dismiss the point by the way i like the guy just fine. I know some of you will hate me for saying that. Would've his his points. That i find to be meritorious. Torius is that when the experts start talking outside their expertise and are still claimed as experts. It undermines faith in all the experts because the media does this regularly that they find someone who's in an industry that person tells them something and they're given the label expert and they may or may not be an expert. You know. I i if i call the local mcdonald's and i asked them how their sales are going. They're not exactly an expert in the restaurant industry. They take orders at mcdonald's. That's different if i go to my local independent grocery store and ask them. What's going on their their opinion may be different from the chain grocery store that has a greater supply chain and yet the media doesn't distinguish these things and sometimes they're there are experts who have agendas and oftentimes the media there. They have an agenda to protect the president for example There is now a in in the politico. Which is really becoming a talking point a mouthpiece for the left of these days they're running stories on how Joe biden is teflon and the republicans have no attacks against him demon.

The see juxtapose photos of the senators next to house speaker. Nancy pelosi it's a phenomenon that's becoming increasingly pronounced. As the outline of the twenty twenty mid-term election comes into focus. Midterms are typically a referendum on the party in power so the standard opposition party. Playbook is to make every down ballot about the city president but biden's elusiveness a target is forcing republicans to rethink the traditional strategy interviews with more than twenty-five gop strategist and party. Officials depict the president. Who's avuncular style and genial burying make you may less than ideal foil. He doesn't induce anger or rage and at the moment his white house is relatively drama free. Response republicans are preparing to break with the time-honored custom and cast the president less as the central character in the midterm elections than as an accessory to the broader excesses of the left biden is not a good bad guy..

If you read the newspaper you're fairly educated person and this educated person believes that the jeopardy contestants are now mad at the anti-defamation league for disabuse them of the notion that kelly donahue the jeopardy contestant he was actually flashing the number three wasn't actually flashing white supremacy simple. But they know it they know he was 'cause he's a magazine instead gypsy the left would have us believe that.

I'm sorry the the vaccinated coming into the stores without a mask and there's a left wing meltdown over this because you know people might lie and so everyone should have to wear a mask because there may be some liars out there. The common thread of all this is that people on the left. Do not trust by the way people in the right or guilty this as well but really the most vocal people in america right now of the issue of trusting their fellow citizens or people on the left do not trust their fellow citizens. They have them by the idea that this is a racist. A systemically racist nation. They look on this country and think things are bad and getting worse. They don't like people of faith they really drip with contempt. And because they're the cultural leaders in opinion setters in journalism right now it's reflected in journalism.

If you're over the age of twenty one union any of the vaccines over the age of sixteen you can get any of the vaccines. They're readily available in the united states. Right now in every state there is no longer a vaccine shortage. If you want it you can go. Get it and guess. What if you're in your twenties or younger and you get covid. You virtually have not problem whatsoever. You'll be fine. Death is exceedingly exceedingly rare. Even even major symptoms are exceedingly exceedingly rare so why do businesses need to protect the unvaccinated when the unvaccinated can protect themselves. Let's continue with this well. Many people happily shed their mass celebrated the appeared into the pandemic others are concerned that with only thirty seven percent of the country fully vaccinated. This relaxation is premature and could lead to a resurgence of infections. If such a head scratching turn of events had occurred under former president donald trump the administration surely would have been blamed for the lack of coordination resulting widespread confusion. The biden team has exp- excelled on many aspects of the govind response. But this was a major blunder that threatens to sit back much of the progress made president biden needs to fix it urgently. Most important biden should own that it was a mistake to see this level of responsibility to the cdc. After watching trump repeatedly sidelined the agency seemingly for political reasons the biden administration understandably has wanted to elevate the cd's role but there's a big difference between listening to scientists and seating policy-making to one side of the organization trump supporters might complain about a double standard but intervening in. This case. wouldn't be about politics. It would be for the public. Good hello is it for the public. Good that we get back to our lives the e for those who are listening to health care experts alone.

It's a five year old picture of a little girl who's not even in the area. They're running a propaganda campaign and the media is on the side of terrorists. Is it any wonder nobody believes them.
