    What, if anything, did the midterms tell us about the country — other than underwhelming Republicans could still take the House and Senate?

    During the COVID-19 lockdowns, American elections radically changed to mail-in and early voting. They did so in a wild variety of state-by-state ways. Add ranked voting and a required majority margin to the mess and the result is that once cherished Election Day balloting becomes increasingly irrelevant.

    Election Night also no longer exists. Returns are not counted for days. It is intolerable for a modern democracy to wait and wait for all sorts of different ballots both cast and counted under radically different and sometimes dubious conditions.

    The Democrats — with overwhelming

    According to an internal memo addressed to Disney’s executives on Friday, the woke firm would soon begin enforcing layoffs, implementing a targeted hiring freeze, and limiting business travel to essential only as part of a wide cost-cutting initiative, CNBC reported.

    “I am fully aware this will be a difficult process for many of you and your teams.” Disney CEO Bob Chapek wrote in a memo to top executives.

    We are going to have to make tough and uncomfortable decisions. But that is just what leadership requires, and I thank you in advance for stepping up during this important time. Our company has weathered many challenges during our 100-year history, and I have no doubt we will achieve our goals and create a more nimble company better suited to the environment of tomorrow.”

    In the letter, Chapek explains how he convened a cost structure taskforce composed of executive officers such as CFO Christine McCarthy and General Counsel Horacio Gutierrez.

  5. Ah, where would we be without conspiracy theories.

    One of the greatest mysteries for me remains why cryptocurrencies were ever permitted to propagate. The United States has fiercely defended its dollar with 20-year penalties for counterfeiting, and even by eliminating world leaders who threatened its hegemony (Gaddafi). –Never mind the possible suppression of its nemesis, precious metals, through the futures market. Yet, the blockchain invention has been permitted to exist in parallel with nary a peep from the Fed as to why.

    This 55 min. vid describes a ridiculous theory explaining that Bitcoin was invented by Satoshi Nakamoto, aka Alan Greenspan, with the help of Hungarian Martian Janos Kemeny. It seems to claim Greenspan invented Bitcoin to save the U.S. from evil bankster money printers. He also was defending against a massive cache of gold containing billions of ounces in the Grand Canyon which, if dug up, would send gold to zero.

    • 2BN of clients’ money is MISSING from collapsed crypto exchange FTX: Founder Sam Bankman-Fried denies secretly transferring $10BN to trading company run by his girlfriend
      By Ronny Reyes For Dailymail.Com
      22:35 EST 11 Nov 2022 , updated 03:01 EST

      About $2billion of customer funds have vanished from collapsed crypto exchange FTX, according to two people familiar with the matter.

      Founder and CEO Sam Bankman-Fried secretly transferred $10 billion of customer funds from FTX to the trading company Alameda Research, which is run by his girlfriend Caroline Ellison, Reuters reports.

      large portion of that total has since disappeared, they said. One source put the missing amount at about $1.7 billion. The other said the gap was between $1 billion and $2 billion.

      While it is known that FTX moved customer funds to Alameda, the missing funds are reported here for the first time.

      The financial hole was revealed in records that Bankman-Fried shared with other senior executives last Sunday, according to the two sources.

      The records provided an up-to-date account of the situation at the time, they said. Both sources held senior FTX positions until this week and said they were briefed on the company’s finances by top staff.

      Bahamas-based FTX filed for bankruptcy on Friday after a rush of customer withdrawals earlier this week. A rescue deal with rival exchange Binance fell through, precipitating crypto’s highest-profile collapse in recent years.

      • FTX Says It May Have Been ‘Hacked,’ as $600 Million in Crypto is Mysteriously Drained Overnight
        Didn’t think the FTX saga could get any worse? Well, it just did. Wayyyyy worse.
        ByLucas Ropek

        Hundreds of millions of dollars in assets were mysteriously siphoned out of the collapsing crypto exchange FTX on Friday, in what exchange officials have referred to as a potential “hacking” incident.

        Already a company in a spectacular state of financial and reputational free fall, the once well-respected and heavily promoted cryptocurrency exchange said Friday that it was looking into a barrage of “abnormal” asset transfers sweeping through accounts. Subsequent analysis seemed to suggest that as much as half a billion dollars may have been stolen.

      A couple of days before the 2022 midterms, the CEO of crypto FTX saw $6 billion in withdrawals in his crypto over a 72-hour period. This led him to try and sell to a Chinese buyer. This didn’t work out.

      Sam Bankman-Fried gave the Dems over $40 million dollars. This information is available from the FEC.

        Of the $900 million in liquid assets, the largest portion – or roughly half – was in the form of $470mn of Robinhood shares owned by a Bankman-Fried vehicle not listed in Friday’s bankruptcy filing, which included 134 corporate entities. The liquid assets represent just 10% of the total assets (including $5.4BN in semi-liquid and $3.2BN in illiquid) and is a fraction of the $9 billion in liabilities at FTX which will now make their way through bankruptcy court for the next several years

      Summary:

      Sam Bankman-Fried’s now bankrupted crypto exchange FTX plunged into further chaos late Friday night and Saturday morning after the company detected unauthorized transactions.

      Bloomberg said the exchange was “hit by a mysterious outflow of about $662 million in tokens in the past 24 hours.”

      These outflows came just hours after FTX filed for bankruptcy on Friday, and customers rushed to withdraw $6 billion over the last several days amid a failed Binance rescue deal.

      Ryne Miller, the exchange’s US general counsel, tweeted that FTX had begun moving digital assets into cold storage, adding the process was “to mitigate damage upon observing unauthorized transactions.”

      Bloomberg cited data from blockchain analytics firm Nansen, which said $662 million in withdrawals flowed out of FTX’s US and international exchanges. But in a separate analysis, research firm Elliptic noted $475 million had been stolen from FTX in transactions via stablecoins and other tokens that were converted into Ether.

    • Cascading Trouble for FTX Crypto Exchange Leads to Inquiries of Campaign Donations to Democrats and Regulators

      FTX crypto currency exchange CEO Sam

      Bankman-Fried is a major donor to multiple progressive causes and politicians. This week as FTX starts to collapse, the financial system underneath the exchange looks more like a Ponzi scheme falling apart.

      The CEO had been a major donor to regulators on Capitol Hill, and the tentacles of FTX extend to Ukraine where Sam Bankman-Fried was operating to support the Ukraine government with crypto currency collections and donations. The FTX corporation and CEO Sam Bankman-Fried is now under multiple investigations. Here’s the 90-second recap of the current dynamic. WATCH:

    • Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen called for crypto to be regulated after Sam Bankman-Fried, a 30-year-old Democrat darling, spent more than $40 million to ‘pay off’ DC elites to turn a blind eye to his Ponzi scheme through the crypto exchange he founded (FTX).

      As TGP’s Joe Hoft reported, the FTX crypto company gave at least $40 million to Democrat candidates and causes in the midterms.

      Up to $2 billion is ‘missing’ after FTX collapsed this week.

          This scandal tied into way too much that is happening. I am not sure if this can be traced back with enough evidence to convict Swamp Rat but we can hope.

          One thing it will make people think twice before they donate to the Dems.

    • the gateway pundit – BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Tens of Billions of US Dollars Were Transferred to Ukraine and then Using FTX Crypto Currency the Funds Were Laundered Back to Democrats in US

      Did you ever wonder where all those billions of dollars were going in Ukraine? Did you ever wonder why anyone was trusting the elites in US politics like the Bidens with billions in funds going to Ukraine?

      Today it turns out that these were excellent questions.

      We have information that the tens of billions of dollars going to Ukraine were actually laundered back to the US to corrupt Democrats and elites using FTX cryptocurrency. Now the money is gone and FTX is bankrupt.

      Earlier today we reported that the FTX cryptocurrency appeared to be used in a ponzi scheme involving the Democrats and Ukraine.

      As reported earlier, the FTX crypto company gave at least $40 million to Democrat candidates and causes in the midterms.

      Sam Bankman-Fried is Biden’s second biggest donor.

      In addition to this, Daily Caller lists many of the lawmakers who Sam Bankman Fried was bankrolling who oversaw the institution that was supposed to keep on eye on companies like FTX:

      Sam Bankman-Fried, prolific Democratic donor and ex-CEO of now-bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange FTX, funded the campaigns of members of Congress overseeing the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), one of the key bodies tasked with regulating the crypto industry and the subject of Bankman-Fried’s aggressive lobbying.

      Bankman-Fried’s FTX is currently under investigation by the CFTC and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) after Bankman-Fried allegedly moved $10 billion in client assets from his crypto exchange to his trading firm Alameda Research, and a liquidity crisis at his exchange which prompted the company to file for bankruptcy. However, prior to the agency’s probe, Bankman-Fried aggressively courted the CFTC – and funded several key lawmakers charged with overseeing the agency, pouring cash into their campaign coffers.

      FTX also happens to be related to Ukraine.

      The far-left Washington Post reported on March 3 that Ukraine was dealing in crypto.

      The Ukrainian government has gathered more than $42 million in cryptocurrency donations since Saturday, plus digital artwork including a limited edition worth roughly $200,000, according to blockchain analytics firm Elliptic. The challenge is how the country cashes in on these assets to fund its war needs.

      Amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the CEO of FTX, Sam Bankman Fried has come forward to help a crypto donation project. He humbly announced that FTX will be supporting the Ukrainian Ministry of Finance and other communities in collecting crypto donations for the country. The Ukrainian government has received over $60 million in crypto donations from all over the world.

      FTX’s CEO, Sam Bankman Fried highlighted that the war in Ukraine has been dragging on. The country is in full need of humanitarian help and access to global financial infrastructure. He also called attention to sanctions and crypto during this kind of situation. He indicated that crypto exchanges should enforce sanctions announced by the government seriously.

      FTX has stressed across all of its regulatory and policy efforts, active coordination and communication with regulators and policymakers is crucial to ensuring that laws and rules achieve their intended outcome, reads a letter by FTX

      The word is now out. The Democrats sent tens of billions to Ukraine and then laundered this money back to Democrat pockets and funds in the US. Now the company is bankrupt and the funds are nowhere to be found.

      This information was shared on Twitter and we can confirm from our sources that this is accurate.

      Of course, the Democrats are sending billions to themselves. They steal elections, why wouldn’t they steal money?

  6. Election Psyop, Trump WON, Economy Still Tanking
    By Greg Hunter On November 11, 2022 In Weekly News Wrap-Ups 190

    you listen only to the lying legacy media (LLM) you would think the 2022 Midterm Election was a huge loss for President Donald Trump. Trump won big despite the cheating, glitches ballot drops (for losing Dems) and the huge psyop that carried on after election day. If you question the cheating, which few do on the LLM, you are an “election denier.” How dare anyone question or object to the massive cheating that has been taken to a well-oiled art form. The “Swamp” or “Uni-party” consisting of Communist Democrats and RINO Republicans work together for a common goal. The two parties just take turns ripping us off.

    Trump won because he crisscrossed the country on his own dime backing candidates in the House and the Senate that would try to “Make America Great Again.” Yes, MAGA! To the elite like Schumer, McConnell, Pelosi and the rest of the treasonous political weasels that attack “We the People,” that is crazy talk. Trump’s election record of backing candidates in the 2022 election is a lopsided 219 Wins to only 16 Losses, and it’s hard to tell if the losses were only because of the massive cheating campaign that even LLM dog FOX News will not mention. The Republicans owe Donald Trump a huge thank you for winning back the House and the Senate!!! Let’s hope the Uni-party doesn’t pull another mysterious ballot dump and “win” by cheating again.

    Inflation cooled, according to the latest government numbers, to 7.7%. The markets rocked higher, and everyone is once again talking about a Fed pivot to stop the rate hikes and continue the easy money for a few more years. Don’t count on the party to last this time. Layoffs are rocking the country, and mortgage applications just hit an all-time low. The real economy is still sinking, and the numbers don’t lie.

  7. zero hedge – The Real Story Behind RSV & The So-Called “Tripledemic”

    MSM sources are now warning of a co-pandemics of flu, RSV and COVID… but is there any reason to be afraid?

    […]Apparently, it’s when we have simultaneous pandemics of influenza, Covid and RSV at the same time. At least, according to the LA Times:

    A ‘tripledemic’ of flu, RSV and COVID is feared in California

    And the Atlantic:

    What a ‘Tripledemic’ Means for Your Body

    And CBS:

    “Tripledemic” in U.S. could bring deluge of patients to hospitals

    All three stories – and there are many others out there too – hit the same handful of talking points.

    They report that the flu is back after its “mysterious” disappearance during the Covid “pandemic” (the Alantic notes US flu cases reduced by well over 90% and calls it “getting lucky”, the doublethink is unbelievable).

    […]

    THE MOTIVE

    To sum up – there is no reason to fear RSV infection. The media are clear about that themselves, even if they bury it under layers of hysterical headlines.

    It is just one of the many viruses which cause – or are said to cause – cold or flu symptoms, all of which circulate the whole world constantly, especially at this time of year.

    There’s ALWAYS a “tripledemic”, or a quademic or a septemic. The only difference is now they are naming it.

    They are taking the routine and pretending it’s exceptional simply to try and frighten you.

    Why?

    Well, rather predictably, to sell vaccines.

    Yes, you’ll be relieved to know that just as RSV is hitting the headlines for the first time EVER, they’ve also just produced the first ever vaccines against it.

    On November 1st, Vox reported:

    New RSV vaccines are coming. This is very, very good news.

    Which claims:

    After decades of failed efforts to produce an RSV vaccine, several highly effective ones are finally on the verge of approval.

    On the same day, Pfizer announced “positive top-line data” for their new RSV vaccine, with CNN reporting:

    After promising trial results for maternal RSV vaccine, Pfizer says it will seek FDA approval this year

    That’s right, after decades of trying and dozens of failed attempts, the pharmaceutical companies have finally managed to create not just one but multiple effective vaccines against an endemic virus…just as the virus has hit the headlines.

    Now, this all sounds rather familiar, doesn’t it?

    If you didn’t fall for this last time you don’t need me to warn you.

    If you DID fall for this last time?

    Well, fool you once shame on them, fool you twice…

      Vaccination durant pregnancy helps protect pregnant people and their babies

      CDC – COVID-19–Associated Hospitalizations Among U.S. Infants Aged <6 Months

      Summary
      What is already known about this topic?

      Infants aged <6 months, who are ineligible for vaccination, have high COVID-19–associated hospitalization rates compared with other pediatric age groups.

      What is added by this report?

      Although population-based COVID-19–associated hospitalization rates among infants aged <6 months increased in the Omicron variant–predominant periods compared with the Delta variant–predominant period, indicators of the most severe disease among hospitalized infants aged <6 months did not.

      What are the implications for public health practice?

      Pregnant women should stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccination to help protect themselves and infants too young to be vaccinated. Nonpharmaceutical measures should be used to help protect infants ineligible for vaccination.

      […]Maternal completion of a 2-dose primary monovalent mRNA COVID-19 vaccination series during pregnancy has been estimated to be 52% effective against COVID-19 hospitalization among infants aged <6 months. This suggests that young infants might receive protection through passive transplacental transfer of maternal antibodies acquired through maternal vaccination. Effectiveness of maternal vaccination in preventing disease in young infants was lower during the early Omicron variant–predominant period (38%) than during the Delta variant–predominant period

    • CBS – Dr. Anthony Fauci talks family, career and what’s next

      + 8 min video

      Dr. Anthony Fauci may be stepping down from his role as chief medical advisor to the president in December, but the immunologist says he’s “not even close” to completely retiring.

      “I don’t know precisely what I’m going to do because I really can’t negotiate a post-government job while I’m in government,” he said. “My broad general theme, even though I don’t know the venue in which it’s going to happen, would be to continue to stay in the arena of science, medicine and public health.”

      Fauci has served under seven different presidents, covering health crises from Ebola to the AIDS epidemic. Over the course of his five-decade career, the physician has faced both criticism and accolades from officials and the public.

      He said that he “never ever wanted to hurt anybody, including President Trump,” who made several comments about Fauci during the height of the COVID pandemic. Fauci’s response to the virus, he said, led him to become “the boogeyman of the far right.”

      “We are living now in an era, I believe, where there is so much distortion of reality, conspiracy theory and untruths,” he said.

      The physician has even received death threats for his work, but says he doesn’t focus on them.

      “The hate and the people who want to kill me is not real,” he said. “It’s unrealistic.”

      Despite the backlash, he says he stayed in the position for all this time because “it was clear that if we walked away from telling the truth in an environment of untruths, then there would be nobody there telling the truth.”

      “When you’re dealing with an outbreak involving the country and the world, you generally think of the country as your patient,” he said. “And when things get tough, you don’t walk away from it.”

      He reflected on the work of his career, and what the nation has learned over the years, noting that the response to AIDS informed the country on the COVID-19 vaccine development.

      “We made major investments in science for decades prior to COVID, and within 11 months [to] have a vaccine that went through massive clinical trials, that is beyond unprecedented,” he said. “We will never be able to prevent the emergency of a new infection. What you can do is prevent that emergence from becoming a pandemic.”

      He’s lead the National Institutes of Health for about as long as he’s been married to world renown bioethicist and nurse Dr. Christine Grady. He got emotional talking about his wife and said he couldn’t have done his job without her.

      “She’s just solid,” he said. “She was working 18 hours a day by working, raising three children, getting a PhD and doing a job that’s an important job.”

      Last weekend, Fauci was honored with the lifetime achievement award at the ninth annual Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards.

      “I gave it everything I had,” he said when reflecting on his life and career. “I didn’t leave anything on the field.”

    Arizona Ballots Make Stop at Runbeck Printing Company to Sort Ballots Before They Are Sent to County — WITH NO OBSERVERS

    Ben Bergquam was outside the Maricopa County election center and followed a Penske truck leave the center and return to Runbeck. Once at Runbeck, the gate is closed.

    Every mail-in ballot that is returned in the county is sent to Runbeck first.

  10. Experts in Brazil Use Benford Analysis to Identify Abnormalities in Election Results – In 2020 Twitter Censored Benford Analysis of Election Labeling It “SEXUAL EXPLOITATION”

    In the 2020 Election, results from Benford Analysis were quickly taken down and censored on social media because they indicated massive Democrat fraud. This same technique is now being used in Brazi to identify areas of voter fraud in the recent corrupt election there.

    In 2020, The Gateway Pundit reported on numerous cities where Benford analysis identified that the results for Joe Biden were likely fraudulent and certain areas for investigation. The results in Pittsburg (note above for Allegheny County), Chicago, and Milwaukee showed clear evidence that investigations should have been performed in those areas.

  11. THE STEAL: It Happened Again – Votes from Third Party Candidate Disappear From Totals Hours After Being Reported

    After the 2020 Election, we found numerous instances where thousands of votes disappeared from President Trump’s column and landed in the Joe Biden column. This was never addressed over the past few years. Of course, it happened again in the midterms.

    In 2020 we reported on an incident that occurred in Pennsylvania where votes from the third-party candidate mysteriously disappeared and appeared to move to the Biden column.

    Remember, we are not dealing with honest people. The Democrat Party is now the party of communists.

    Vote switches happened again in this election. Ms. Diane Sare was the Independent candidate for US Senate in New York.

    On election night, third-party candidate Diane Sare lost more than 25,000 ballots in the New York Senate race.

    The Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters alongside the United States Postal Service is investigating a large bag full of ballots found in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

    The ballots were found inside a deep ravine by a woman who was riding her motorcycle.

    Julie Neiman the woman who spotted the ballots told KSBW: “They were trying to make it look like people wouldn’t find them. That’s the way I saw it. They were dumped over the edge of the road down this deep ravine. It goes pretty far and it’s very steep.”

  13. Following a class action lawsuit filed by the America First Legal (AFL), a Trump-appointed federal judge ruled that Biden’s order forcing doctors to treat patients based on “gender identity” and not based on science is unlawful.

    “HISTORIC VICTORY FOR SCIENCE,” AFL wrote on its Twitter account. “Federal court ruled that Biden’s edict forcing doctors to treat patients based on “gender identity” (i.e. providing “puberty blockers”, hormones, referrals to genital mutilation surgery) is unlawful, following AFL class action lawsuit.”

  15. They Stole the Election from Blake Masters – Do Election Over Again!” – President Trump Calls For New Election In Arizona

    Donald Trump called for a new election in Arizona in two Truth Social posts.

    Trump said they “stole the election from Blake Masters.”

    Trump on Truth Social:

    So in Maricopa County they’re at it again. Voting Machines in large numbers didn’t work, but only in Republican districts. People were forced to wait for hours, then got exhausted or had other things to do and left the voting lines by the thousands. Even Kari Lake was taken to a Liberal Democrat district in order to vote. Others weren’t so lucky. This is a scam and voter fraud, no different than stuffing the ballot boxes. They stole the Electron from Blake Masters. Do Election over again!

  16. FTX Held Just $900MM In Liquid Assets Vs $9BN In Liabilities As Video Emerges Confirming Alameda Knew It Was Pilfering Client Funds

    BY TYLER DURDEN
    SATURDAY, NOV 12, 2022 – 01:49 PM
    On Friday, we first learned courtesy of a mystery twitter account belonging to an anonymous FTX insider, that the now bankrupt crypto exchange held just $900 million in liquid assets (including, among other things, a $7.3 million online bet by Democrat megadonor Sam Bankman-Fried for Trump to lose).

    the $900 million in liquid assets, the largest portion – or roughly half – was in the form of $470mn of Robinhood shares owned by a Bankman-Fried vehicle not listed in Friday’s bankruptcy filing, which included 134 corporate entities. The liquid assets represent just 10% of the total assets (including $5.4BN in semi-liquid and $3.2BN in illiquid) and is a fraction of the $9 billion in liabilities at FTX which will now make their way through bankruptcy court for the next several years.

  18. BREITBART – Thousands protest in Berlin over price rises

    Thousands of people demonstrated in Berlin on Saturday calling for food prices to be controlled and for the rich to face higher taxes as Germany faces a cost of living crisis.

    Marching behind banners, one of which was emblazoned with the demand “Redistribute!”, the demonstrators marched through the German capital after a call by left-wing organisations to protest against soaring prices and rents.

    Both police and organisers said at least 3,000 people took part in the protest which took place to the backdrop of rising inflation caused in part by the war in Ukraine which has hit energy and food supplies.

    Other banners said the current economic order “puts profits over people’s needs”.

    Inflation in Germany is at its highest level in more than 70 years and reached 10.4 percent in October, according to figures released on Friday.

  19. ATTENTION ARIZONA PATRIOTS: Friends in AZ Discourage Supporters from Protesting Outside Maricopa Counting Center – Don’t Need Another Fed-Induced Incident

    ATTENTION ARIZONA PATRIOTS:
    Officials with the AZ GOP candidates want to discourage folks from coming down to Maricopa counting center. They think the opposition is itching for a reason to shut down the vote. We are being told we need to be united in our messaging. Kari Lake is going to release video momentarily.

    It’s better for folks to STAY AWAY from Maricopa county offices, so they can finish their job of counting votes. The last thing anyone wants is a reason to stop the counting.

    We don’t need another fed-induced incident

  20. Last year, I posted for the second time a recurring Veterans Day article, long a tradition at TOC and Liberty Unyielding 1.0. In 2022, it appears for the third time.

    In the preface for last year (2021), I felt that much had changed since the current article first appeared in 2020. (An earlier article was published annually from 2009 to 2018.)

    Oddly, though, in 2022 my sense is that the sentiments of 2020 are being reaffirmed. The problem of threats to freedom

    Once again — A popular, attractive, honest, and competent Republican candidate had his race taken from him after several days of delayed vote counting.

    This time it was Adam Laxalt in Nevada.

    Laxalt led the polls and had a good election day turnout.

    On Thursday Adam Laxalt told Tucker Carlson his opponent did not have a valid path to victory.
