More Than Half Of Homes Listed In NYC Last Year Never Sold

from ZeroHedge:

A torrid post-crisis recovery in the NYC housing market came to a screeching halt last year as a chasm opened up between what sellers were asking and what buyers were willing to pay.

But in the clearest post-mortem showing just how bad last year was for one of the world’s most unaffordable real estate markets, Property Shark  found in a recent analysis that less than half of the housing inventory available sold last year. According to PS, 48% of the homes listed between March through May of last year had been sold as of Feb. 1.

Wall Street vs. Workers

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade:

Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) delivered these remarks at the opening of the Senate Banking Committee hearing on March 4, 2021.

“The economy isn’t physics – it’s not governed by scientific laws outside our control. It’s made up of people making choices about our values and what kind of society we want to live in. Despite what we’re constantly told on TV, most Americans share a lot of the same values – they want an economy that’s fair and just, where hard work pays off for everyone, no matter who you are or what kind of work you do, and where everyone has the economic security to raise a family and retire with dignity.

Your Frustration is THEIR TORMENT! #MercenaryPropagandists like @Travis_View @rothschildmd @WillSommer @JaredlHolt @jordanuhl WILL FAIL! #NewQ

from Neon Revolt:

I’ll be honest: I wasn’t sure how to begin this article.

I went back and forth for a few days; wrote a few thousand words up and and then tossed it because, somehow, I wasn’t getting to the heart of what I was trying to communicate.

I think it’s safe to say almost all #QPatriots have been experiencing a lot of frustration over the past week or so, in the wake of the Midterms and 11/11.

It’s beyond frustration, actually. It’s moved into the territory of despair, as we watch those who hate us – who wish nothing but death and destruction upon our heads – seemingly succeeding across multiple domains simultaneously. Elections are being stolen. California is burning. And where is Q in all of this?!

IN MICHIGAN, HOUSE PASSES BILL TO ‘VOLUNTARILY’ BEGIN PLACING HUMAN IMPLANTABLE MICROCHIPS INTO THE BODIES OF ALL STATE GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

Michigan State Rep. Bronna Kahle sponsored the successful bill, and while the microchips are not widely used throughout the state she believes they will become standard in the coming years. “With the way technology has increased over the years and as it continues to grow, it’s important Michigan job providers balance the interests of the company with their employees’ expectations of privacy,” said the bill’s sponsor Michigan State Rep. Bronna Kahle. “While these miniature devices are on the rise, so are the calls of workers to have their privacy protected.” The bill will be introduced to the State Senate where, if it passes, Governor Gretchen Whitmer will be able to sign the legislation into Michigan law.

THE WORLD’S RULERS ARE PROMISING A “GREAT RESET”

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

It’s not a conspiracy theory, it’s a fact. The ruling classes of the globe are promising that they will follow through with the Great Reset.  If you think this is going to be done in your favor, then you are delusional.

The goal is for humans to become a slave race to the very few, we will “own nothing” and be “happy” to serve the ruling class. At least people are finally realizing what these totalitarian control freaks want in the very near future.

from Neon Revolt:

Q’s posting a ton.

I love it, but at the same time, its difficult to keep up.

Don’t stop on my sake, Q.

Apologies to my readers for how late this is:

COVID “Looks Engineered,” Govt-Funded Immunologist Told Fauci In January 2020

by Raheem Kasaam, The National Pulse:

Kristian Andersen – the head of the Andersen Lab at Scripps Research Institute in California – told Dr. Fauci in late January 2020 that “unusual features” of the COVID-19 virus led him to believe it was “potentially engineered.”

The bombshell release from Dr. Fauci’s e-mails goes to disprove the political and media establishment’s claims that lab-leak or bio-weapon concerns were “conspiracy theories.”

GOOGLE’S “SMART CITY OF SURVEILLANCE” FACES NEW RESISTANCE IN TORONTO

by Ava Kofman, The Intercept:

THE WORLD’S MOST ambitious “smart city,” known as Quayside, in Toronto, has faced fierce public criticism since last fall, when the plans to build a neighborhood “from the internet up” were first revealed. Quaysiderepresents a joint effort by the Canadian government agency Waterfront Toronto and Sidewalk Labs, which is owned by Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc., to develop 12 acres of the valuable waterfront just southeast of downtown Toronto.

In keeping with the utopian rhetoric that fuels the development of so much digital infrastructure, Sidewalk Labs has pitched Quayside as the solution to everything from traffic congestion and rising housing prices to environmental pollution. The proposal for Quayside includes a centralized identity management system, through which “each resident accesses public services” such as library cards and health care. An applicant for a position at Sidewalk Labs in Toronto was shocked when he was asked in an interview to imagine how, in a smart city, “voting might be different in the future.”

Where’s the Beef? U.S. Points the Finger at Russia as Giant Meat Supplier Suffers Cyber Attack

by Bryan Preston, PJ Media:

JBS, the world’s largest meat supplier, has been hit with a major cyber attack.

The attack has reportedly crippled the meat giant, which controls about 20% of the U.S. beef and pork slaughtering capacity.

As a result of the attack, large US and Canadian meat plants canceled shifts Tuesday, threatening to disrupt meat supply and further inflate food prices.

The White House has contacted major meat processors across the US to notify them of the incident and assess “any impact on supply,” principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said aboard Air Force One. She added that the FBI is investigating the hacking.

“The president has directed the administration to determine what we can do to mitigate any impacts as they may become necessary,” she said.
