Former FBI Agent Andrew McCabe Under Active DOJ Investigation For Obstruction of Justice Reader 01/31/2018 (Wed) 19:11:46 Id: 396e32 [Preview] No. 5934 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Justice Department's internal watchdog has been investigating former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for apparently sitting on emails obtained from Anthony Weiner's laptop, the Washington Post's Devlin Barrett and Karoun Demirjian reported Tuesday (of note, Barrett was recently outed as a potential source of FBI leaks, according to text messages between FBI employees accused of political bias)

The DOJ Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, wants to know why McCabe allegedly took little to no action for approximately three weeks on the trove of emails sent by Hillary's top aide, Huma Abedin - Weiner's wife, which were discovered during an unrelated investigation into Weiner "sexting" with an underage girl.

The inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, has been asking witnesses why FBI leadership seemed unwilling to move forward on the examination of emails found on the laptop of former congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) until late October about three weeks after first being alerted to the issue, according to these people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive matter.

A key question of the internal investigation is whether McCabe or anyone else at the FBI wanted to avoid taking action on the laptop findings until after the Nov. 8 election, these people said. It is unclear whether the inspector general has reached any conclusions on that point. -WaPo

In late September 2016, approximately five weeks before the US election, thousands of Huma Abedin's work-related emails were found on Weiner's laptop. According to WaPo, the New York FBI office alerted FBI headquarters within days - though accounts as to the exact date vary.

Either way, McCabe was made aware of the matter by late September or early October, as the NY field office agents wanted to discuss the issue with DC Clinton email investigators to compare notes. According to people familiar with the matter, officials at FBI headquarters requested the emails' metadata - which include the sender, recipient and timestamp.

While McCabe is said to have been involved in those discussions, accounts vary as to how much then-FBI Director James Comey knew of the situation.

Some people involved at the time said Comey learned of the issue around the same time as McCabe. Others contend Comey did not know about it until weeks later. Senior Justice Department officials, according to several people familiar with the issue, were not notified until mid-October.

But for a period of at least three weeks, according to people involved at the time, nothing much happened a lag that has sparked the inspector generals questions. -WaPo

McCabe announced his departure from the FBI on Monday following a meeting with FBI Director Christopher Wray, in which they reportedly discussed the Inspector General's investigation.

McCabe had previously announced a March retirement. Several media outlets reported that McCabe is using his remaining vacation days to go on "terminal leave" and that his official retirement from the agency won't happen until March, allowing him to collect the full pension.

Also notable is that Wray was reportedly "shocked to his core" Sunday night after viewing a four-page confidential FISA memo said to detail egregious surveillance abuses by McCabe's team. The next day, McCabe was forced to step down.

Hannity sat down once again with journalist Sara Carter this week, whose sources say McCabe may have also instructed FBI agents to alter their "302" forms - the paperwork an agent files after interviewing someone:

Shocked him to his core, and not only that, the Inspector General's report - I have been told tonight by a number of sources, there's indicators right now that McCabe may have asked FBI agents to actually change their 302's - those are their interviews with witnesses. So basically every time an FBI agent interviews a witness, they have to go back and file a report.

If the reports from Sara Carter and the Washington Post's ever-connected Devlin Barrett are true, McCabe not only sat on the Weiner laptop emails related to the Hillary Clinton email investigation - but also asked FBI agents to commit crimes by altering paperwork.

Or, as Sarah Westwood summarizes, this report suggests:

McCabe tried to stall probe of Weiner laptop emails til after the election
McCabe's colleagues got suspicious about the delay

Trump to allow 800,000 shitskins to stay

President Trump promised Tuesday to sign what he called a "bill of love" to extend protections to 800,000 immigrants who entered the United States illegally as children --- if Congress can work out the details.

"You folks are going to have to come up with a solution," Trump told 25 lawmakers in a remarkable televised negotiation at the White House. "And if you do, I'm going to sign that solution."

The Republicans came with a common talking point: Congress needs a permanent fix to immigration enforcement, or else have to deal with the issue again. Democrats said the urgency of saving DREAMers from deportation meant that extending DACA must take priority.

"A clean DACA bill, to me, is a DACA bill where we take care of the 800,000 people," he said. "We take care of them and we also take care of security. That's very important."
Sen. Richard Durbin, D-III., the number two Democrat in the Senate, expressed optimism that such a deal could get done.

They should not be allowed over here at all, but regardless of what a lot of people may think, Trump can't do everything he wants. He has to make deals with politicians because a minority of the Republican party is just as cucked as all the Democrats.

Trump is using DACA as leverage to get his wall. He knows he doesn't have enough REAL conservative votes to get that wall without a compromise. Sad... but that's reality. I still say he has some tricks up his sleeve like NAFTA (which the establishment really wants him to leave alone). Imagine if he were to say something like "grant us the wall funding or we are not only going to let DACA expire, we will withdrawal from NAFTA too). That would make them really panic so I think some threats are coming, for both sides.


update Reader 01/25/2018 (Thu) 23:47:34 Id: 408744 [Preview] No.5769 del
Here's an update:

President Donald Trump proposed a path to citizenship for 1.8 million undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, if lawmakers agree to create a $25 billion fund to expand barriers along the Mexico border and make other changes to the immigration system.

The proposal, presented to Senate leaders on Thursday, would additionally restrict family-based immigration, which is the channel by which most immigrants have come to the U.S. for the past 50 years. The White House plan also calls for an end to a lottery-type program that randomly awards 50,000 visas annually to foreigners.

Mr. Trump was in Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum on Thursday. But his top aides told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that the president would sign into law legislation that included these changes. The Republican leader responded that he intended to bring such a bill to a vote during the week of Feb. 5, White House officials said.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Mr. McConnell could find enough support for such a measure. Passage needs a total of 60 votes in the Senate that will require backing from Republicans, who hold 51 seats, and some Democrats.

And White House officials on Thursday acknowledged that approval was an even bigger question in the House, where a small but powerful wing of conservative Republicans can—and often do—prevent their party from acting without help from Democrats.

The biggest question Thursday was how conservatives will react to Mr. Trump’s support for citizenship for the Dreamers, who were shielded from deportation by actions taken by former President Barack Obama. About 700,000 immigrants registered for that program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

Mr. Trump’s plan would protect those people, plus others who would otherwise qualify. That brings the total to about 1.8 million people who could become citizens within 10 to 12 years, White House officials said.

As State-run Corporate Media Reports Fake News, They Ignore A Massive Terror Attack Killing Thousands of Americans Reader 01/29/2018 (Mon) 18:01:13 Id: 38cc5a [Preview] No. 5880 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
As State-run Corporate Media Reports Fake News, They Ignore Thousands of Americans Dying From Recent Flu Shots

RELATED: >>>/news/5468 ; >>>/news/5551 ; >>>/news/5672 ; >>>/news/5674 ; >>>/news/5690 ; >>>/news/5731 ; >>>/news/5865

Children are dying from the flu all across America, according to media reports. What the media isn’t reporting, however, is how many of the children who died were also vaccine recipients. Make no mistake: If only unvaccinated children were dying from the flu, that would be the headline everywhere: “Unvaccinated Children Dying Across America” or even “Flu Shot Saves Children from Deadly Influenza.” But of course you’re not seeing those headlines for the simple reason that vaccinated children are among those who are being killed by this year’s flu.

“The dominant Influenza strain this year is H3N2. This particular strain has a history of causing more hospitalizations and more deaths,” reports The Organic Prepper. “In addition to H3N2 producing a more serious infection in general, this year’s particular H3N2 influenza virus is particularly virulent.”

This year’s flu has reportedly killed 44,116 people, according to the CDC. The number of children so far killed by this year’s flu is 37, say CDC statistics. The flu vaccine, widely touted by the clueless media as being some sort of magical “bulletproof vest” against influenza infections, is approaching zero effectiveness.

Via The Organic Prepper: Not only does this influenza strain produce a more intense and deadly flu, the flu vaccine is less effective against it. This Centers for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) article discusses a study published in The Lancet spanning 11 years that demonstrates H3N2 is more resistant to the flu vaccine. … the flu vaccine demonstrates only a 33% vaccine effective (VE) rate with the average H3N2 strain… To make matters worse, this year’s flu vaccine isn’t even close to the average 33% VE rate of prior years. This year’s vaccine is performing at approximately a 10% VE rate.

So wait, what?

You mean to tell me the CDC already knows that this year’s vaccine is only 10% effective at protecting children from the influenza strains circulating in the wild? According to CBS News:

This year’s flu vaccine may only be 10% effective, experts warn… It is the same formulation that was used during Australia’s most recent flu season — which typically sets a pattern for what the U.S. will face — and it was only 10 percent effective there.

You don't have to go to a doctor or sign a contract. Thats not mandatory, you THINK its mandatory. You may have been brainwashed that its mandatory... but its not. You may have had to pay for healthcare via Obamacare (if you have choosen not to pay the tax). But that does not mean you couldn't have rejected checkups (which you can do, its not against the law to avoid a doctors visit).

I'll say this, you better be very careful from now on what you sign. Make sure you agree with it. If the contract enslaves you, its NOT against the law to get a lawyer involved or reject that contract. You may have some inconveniences, sure. But its NOT against the law to say "nope, not signing this."

There are some limits to freedom even in the US but you have to know your individual rights in order to practice them.

No one made it against the law to see a doctor. No one made it against the law to choose an alternative holistic doctor either. Yes, you can do that! But if you don't have enough balls to practice those rights then tough luck, just bend over and give up.

I'm not going to ever bend over and give up. I know my rights and I practice them.

No one made it against the law to avoid a doctor, lets put it that way. I have a doctor myself, but I haven't seen him in at least a few years, because I don't need to. I feel fine, I take care of myself via a healthy diet and exercise. I don't go taking vaccines either, and I certainly don't ask or tell any govt official about it, I keep to myself. I think a lot of Americans forgot what its like to keep their personal matters to themselves. Thats too bad.

Obamacare mandate has now been repealed via The New Tax Cut Reform Bill.

I repeat, you no longer have to pay for Obamacare or be forced to pay a tax. The mandate is OVER. It has officially been repealed.

If you are subject to future medical tyranny, then YOU are doing something wrong. You might want to consider removing yourself from this Obamacare system.



Third World USA? Train Carrying Members of Congress Derails Reader 01/31/2018 (Wed) 17:20:24 Id: 001bd0 [Preview] No. 5930 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A train carrying members of Congress -- including House Speaker Paul Ryan -- to their legislative retreat in West Virginia hit a truck Wednesday, multiple sources told CNN.

An aide confirmed Ryan was on the train and is fine. Separately, a congressman on the train told CNN most of the staff and members on the train are OK.

The Amtrak train left from Union Station in Washington earlier Wednesday, and was carrying members of Congress, as well as their spouses, some family members and aides to the lawmakers.

Rep. John Faso, a New York Republican, who was on the train that crashed, said he was able to see the truck that hit the train, and that he was told that injuries were expected from people in the truck, not train.

"There was (what) looks like a tractor trailer carrying trash that was hit by the train," Faso, who said he was in the third car of the train, told CNN.

"I think everyone on the train is OK," Faso said. "I don't know that for sure, it's a long train. But most of the concern is for the people outside."

One GOP source was unsure how many members of Congress were on the train or how many people were injured, but said there were injuries.

That source said members "hit the deck."

Republican members of Congress were on their way for a retreat at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, starting Wednesday and ending Friday. Vice President Mike Pence, who was not on the train, is scheduled to speak to members later Wednesday and President Donald Trump is scheduled to address the event tomorrow.

Truck Smashed Into Train! Reader 01/31/2018 (Wed) 20:02:04 Id: 001bd0 [Preview] No.5936 del
UPDATE!
Truck Smashed Into Train!
Was this an orchestrated attack?

A chartered train carrying dozens of GOP lawmakers to a Republican policy retreat in West Virginia struck a garbage truck in a rural Virginia town on Wednesday. No lawmakers or aides were reported injured, but the White House said one person was killed and another was seriously hurt.

Lawmakers said the fatality appeared to be someone who was on the truck. One lawmaker who was aboard the train, Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., said the vehicle had been ripped in half and said he saw a person wrapped in tarp and said emergency workers appeared to be "putting a body away."

Amtrak spokeswoman Kimberly Woods says there were no reported injuries to passengers or crew members after the incident, which happened around 11:20 a.m. in Crozet, Virginia. Crozet is about 15 miles west of Charlottesville.

Madeline Curott, Albemarle County police spokeswoman, said authorities had received a call "about a fast train hitting a truck." She would not confirm a fatality but said three people on the truck were seriously injured.

Cole said he felt "a tremendous jolt" when the accident occurred, nearly two hours after it left Washington headed to the Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va.

The policy retreat, an annual event, is scheduled to last three days and feature speeches from President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. By early afternoon, lawmakers were boarding buses to resume their trip and Pence was still planning to address them later Wednesday.

Cole said the train stopped quickly after impact. He said several GOP lawmakers who are doctors got off the train to assist, including Rep. Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio, who was also at last June's shooting of Republicans at a baseball practice in nearby Alexandria, Virginia, and treated some of the victims.

This is literally the fist time since Reagan when we had a decent president and a strong Republican majority.

Someone is not playing fair that's for sure. Remember there was another attack against Republicans early last year too, some nutcase was shooting at Congressmen playing a baseball game. I don't think any got killed, by the grace of God, but some were shot and injured.

With the FISA memo about FBI abuse against the Trump administration coming out soon, as well as all these new political investigations reopening someone is running scared and trying to have Congress killed or intimidated over all this stuff going on.

I think this "deep state" is being confirmed as fact, its no longer a secret our govt has gone rogue and is working for foreign interests. The Republican party only represent a threat because they haven't been 100% subverted yet.



Hawaii Officials Hint At Attempted False Flag Attack: The Missile Alert Was Based On ‘Real Threat’ Reader 01/30/2018 (Tue) 19:51:19 Id: 0e6451 [Preview] No. 5910 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/news/5694

A Hawaii government official has told reporters that the ballistic missile alert was sent to the public because “an actual attack was imminent.”

According to U.S. regulators investigating the incident, the Hawaii employee who sounded the alarm did so because he had reason to believe a missile was incoming.

Thelastamericanvagabond.com reports: We cannot say definitively if that lie was on behalf of the US government, the State of Hawaii, or just the employees themselves, but clearly there is more to this story than meets the eye.

BREAKING: US regulators: Hawaii employee who sent false ballistic missile alert thought actual attack was imminent.

— The Associated Press (@AP) January 30, 2018

Even before this admission, many were highly skeptical of this entire story. From the easily debunked excuses of “wrong buttons” being pushed and shift exchange mistakes, to the suspiciously timed “false missile alert” in Japan that immediately followed, it was quickly clear to any with a willingness to address the blatant holes, that we were not getting the whole story. And even more suspicious that it was quickly discovered that the Clintons had been in Hawaii during the event. What that means exactly, if anything, is up to the reader to decide, but now that we know the entire back story was a lie, their presence begins to stand out a bit more. Especially if one feels this was some sort of open attack on the Trump Administration.

We followed up with our interview of Robert David Steele, who claimed he had five different source all claiming there was a real missile inbound that was subsequently shot down — even a fishing boat that saw what they thought at the time was a meteor crashing down into the ocean during the event. They now believe this was the missile hitting the water after being brought down.

Yes, it was a false flag attempt by The Clowns in America, a criminal organization, in attempt to blame the attack on North Korea. Most likely organized by Hillary, Huma, Obama and others who felt threatened by new incoming arrests so tried to pull this off in revenge.

Look up Dr. James Garrow, a former clandestine operative who was fired by Obama for whistleblowing secrets sent to him by military contacts.

Obama tried to do the same thing in 2013 if I recall, and the US military refused to carry out an EMP attack against the United States. Instead they shot one of the nukes down 200 miles off the coast of South Carolina and then transported the rest of the identified nukes to a safe haven (which was reported on in abrupt confusion).

The reason Obama wanted to knock out our power grid is because it would have been easier to force the globalist agenda under an emergency declaration and contingency operations (martial law). It would have ended up reducing the population by 90% within one year and would be easy to disarm the rest of those who survived, resulting in a swift takeover America as a whole. Later everything could be easily micro-managed and regulated to their despotic desires.

The EMP nuke attack was thwarted by two brave high brass Generals and an Admiral, along with some mid-ranking brass. Obama's reaction made his contempt very clear as a massive purge began after the even leading to over 300 high brass military leaders being removed and replaced with his crony loyalists. It was a stunning confession by Dr. Garrow, who bragged that Obama was very angry "they took away his keys" (aka his nuclear authority as POTUS).

White House Is Planning To Nationalize 5G Network

https://web.archive.org/web/20180129153823/https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-01-28/white-house-planning-nationalize-5g

In a stunning - if accurate - report published Sunday night, Axios claims that White House national security officials are considering an unprecedented federal takeover of a portion of the nation’s mobile spectrum/network to protect against Chinese attacks, in what may well be a pre-emptive shot, hinting at upcoming trade wars between the two superpowers.

Axios got its hands on PowerPoint deck and a memo, both of which were purportedly produced by a senior National Security Council official, which were presented to other senior officials at other agencies during a recent meeting. The documents argue that America needs a centralized nationwide 5G network within three years. There'll be a fierce debate inside the Trump administration, and an outcry from the industry over the next 6-8 months over how such a network is going to be built and paid for.

I agree, if there is one thing I don't want its dangerous cell phone frequencies that are forced to my head. This 5G is 1000x as powerful as 4G and you can't escape from all the microwaves in the air. Very very bad idea and will have major negative impact on public health.

I'm going to be taking nascent iodine and cod liver oil more often so my head doesn't boil over. (Just drop that stuff into tea with honey and you won't have a bad taste in your mouth if you decide to do the same).

The House Intelligence Committee on Monday evening voted to release a classified memo circulating in Congress that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses.

The vote was announced to reporters by California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, who called it a “very sad day, I think, in the history of this committee.” The motion passed on a party-line basis, he said.

Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SCS) wrote six Judiciary Committee letters requesting information from: John Podesta, Donna Brazille, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Robbie Mook, the DNC, and Hillary For America Chief Strategist Joel Benenson.

Cucked! Merkel Mocked PM May’s Brexit Negotiations at Secret Davos Briefing Reader 01/30/2018 (Tue) 18:09:26 Id: 100a36 [Preview] No. 5904 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
German Chancellor Angela Merkel reduced a secret gathering of journalists to “uproarious” laughter as she recounted the British prime minister’s clueless approach to Brexit negotiations during the Davos meetings last week, in claimed remarks that come shortly after President Trump also said he thought May was handling Brexit badly.

Merkel told journalists at what ITV politics editor Robert Peston described as a “secret briefing” at the globalist World Economic Forum Davos summit last week about May’s unusual approach to negotiating the Brexit deal — in which she apparently was content to allow Germany to dictate the terms of any future deal.

Peston wrote:

Merkel said that when she asks Mrs May what she wants the shape of the UK’s relationship with the EU to be, Mrs May says “make me an offer”.

To which Mrs Merkel says, “but you’re leaving – we don’t have to make you an offer. Come on what do you want?

To which Mrs May replies “make me an offer”.

And so, according to Mrs Merkel, the two find themselves trapped in a recurring loop of “what do you want?” and “make me an offer”.

Although the British journalist was not present at the secret meeting, he claimed to have been told by those who were there that after hearing the details from Merkel those in the room “laughed uproariously”.

Britain’s Times newspaper reports the remarks of a German government spokesman who said simply of the claims: “We do not comment on these reports.”

"Make me an offer"

Means we will blow Germany the fuck up again. The offer, is for their EU itself. They feel they are strong, but not without the Muslims. When we attack Berlin and Mecca at the same time, who will cry? Oh sure, I know Israel and moscow and so forth. But really, she is obviously Hitler's kid, and looks just like him. So, when I take Berlin, I will tatoo a Hitler stach on her but I will let her live. Maybe.

Obviously the lovely family we see here might not share me feelings but I have a soft spot for them and willn't see them over run not by Germans, sealions or fuckin mo ham headans.

She is not Hitler's kid. The bitch isn't even German. Do you want a rundown on Merkel's family history?

Merkel was born Angela Dorothea Kasner in 1954 in Hamburg (guess who died in 1945), West Germany, the daughter of Horst Kasner, a native of Berlin and his wife Herlind, born in 1928 in Danzig (now Gdańsk, Poland) as Herlind Jentzsch, a teacher of English and Latin. Her mother was the daughter of the Danzig politician Willi Jentzsch and maternal granddaughter of the city clerk of Elbing (now Elbląg, Poland) Emil Drange.

Merkel has Polish ancestry through her paternal grandfather, Ludwig Kasner, a German national of Polish origin from Posen (now Poznań).

The family’s original name Kaźmierczak was Germanized to Kasner in 1930. Kazmierczak is a Jewish surname. Kazmierczak derives from Kazimierz, a major Jewish city in Poland, made especially for Jews outside of Cracow. Kazimierz is a historical district of Kraków (Poland), best known for being home to a Jewish community from the 14th century. Kazmierrczak is also a name for a Jewish Cantor: http://www.4crests.com/kazmierczak-coat-of-arms.html
This Jewish surname of Kazmierczak was an occupational name for a cantor in a synagogue. The name was derived from the Hebrew Chazan. Merkel’s grandfather came from Poznan which had one of the largest Jewish communities in Europe: http://www.yivoencyclopedia.org/article.aspx/Poznan

Urban Hell: Home Prices In 80% Of US Cities Grow Twice Faster Than Wages Reader 01/30/2018 (Tue) 16:22:50 Id: 501b20 [Preview] No. 5902 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
According to the latest BLS data, average hourly wages for all US workers in November rose at a stubbornly low 2.5% relative to the previous year, well below the Fed's "target" of 3.5-4.5%, as countless economists are unable to explain how 4.1% unemployment, and "no slack" in the economy fails to boost wage growth. Another problem with tepid wage growth, in addition to crush the Fed's credibility, is that it keeps a lid on how much general price levels can rise by. With record debt, it has been the Fed's imperative to boost inflation at any cost (or rather at a cost of $4.5 trillion) to inflate away the debt overhang, however weak wages have made this impossible.

Well, not really.

Because a quick look at US housing shows that while wages may be growing at roughly 2.5%, according to the latest Case Shiller data, every single metro area in the US saw home prices grow at a higher pace, while 16 of 20 major U.S. cities experienced home price growth of 5% or higher: double the average wage growth, and something which even the NAR has been complaining about with its chief economist Larry Yun warning that as the disconnect between prices and wages become wider, homes become increasingly unaffordable.

And while this should not come as a surprise - considering we have pointed it out on numerous occasions in the past - one look at the chart below suggests that something strange is taking place in Seattle, which has either become "Vancouver South" when it comes to Chinese hot money laundering, or there is an unprecedented mini housing bubble in the hipster capital of the world.

Also worth keeping an eye on: price appreciation in Sin City has quietly surged in recent months, and in September home prices surged 10.7% Y/Y, the only other double digit price increase in the US after Seattle. Considering that Las Vegas was the epicenter of the last housing bubble when prices exploded higher only to crash, it may be a good idea to keep a close eye on price tendencies in this metro area for confirmation of the second housing bubble.

Confirming the recent jump in home prices, at the national level in November home prices for the Top 20 metro areas rose 6.4% YoY according to Case Shiller, matching October and the fastest rate since June 2014.

“Looking across the 20 cities covered here, those that enjoyed the fastest price increases before the 2007-2009 financial crisis are again among those cities experiencing the largest gains. San Diego, Los Angeles, Miami and Las Vegas, price leaders in the boom before the crisis, are again seeing strong price gains. They have been joined by three cities where prices were above average during the financial crisis and continue to rise rapidly – Dallas, Portland OR, and Seattle.”

As we just showed, the 20-City CS Composite index is within 1% of its record highs from 2006.

Meanwhile, for those looking to buy for the first time, conditions have never been worse. Growth in property values is outpacing wage gains and limiting affordability, representing a major headwind for first-time buyers, and the broader market.

Americans have been conned for years into thinking they can make a better living in the cities. I'm glad I never fell for this scam and decided rather than move, continue driving myself to work and just to pay off my mortgage instead. Worked like a charm, my house is worth 2x the price now and the hell if I'd ever sell at this point.

If you are living in an expensive city, do some research and you'll find much better and cheaper places where you can live and find work. Might not be too many tech-related jobs or banking jobs, but your lower income would be suitable enough for comfortable living.

And if you live with family, don't be down about it. I often tell the millennials who feel bad about living with their parents that back in my day a lot of families lived with each other and supported one another, sometimes in intervals. Farmers and Ranchers especially (more of them existed back then). This whole country has been brainwashed by commies since the 60s that everyone needs to move out by 18 or 19, when in reality our country was founded on families supporting one another in their time of need. And with that support, you can learn skills and get the right kind of job you need. Sadly the subversive communist propaganda has ruined so many lives. McCarthy was right!
