The global economy continues to grapple with the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, with the role of banks and the flow of money under scrutiny. The recession exposed the risks taken by borrowers investing in the market, leading to a downward spiral that necessitated a bailout of banks with taxpayer money. Central banks intervened to stabilize the economy and prevent deflation, but questions persist about whether these measures truly benefit ordinary people or merely widen the wealth gap. The dominance of big banks and the continued sale of risky financial products, along with the role of pension funds in global markets, have contributed to increased housing costs and inequality. The current monetary system is seen as exacerbating inequality, prompting calls for changes in taxation and the redesign of the financial system.

In a parallel development, the rise of financial giant BlackRock is reshaping the economy and exerting influence on politics. BlackRock’s “going direct reset” strategy bypasses traditional monetary policy, utilizing artificial intelligence and aligning with the ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) movement. However, this has led to growing public discontent and protests against the company’s agenda.

Meanwhile, the humanitarian crisis in Gaza continues to escalate, with UNICEF decrying the Israel-Hamas war for its staggering child death toll. The conflict has killed thousands of children and put many more at risk from violence and a water crisis. The situation is further exacerbated by Israel’s ground offensive in response to Hamas terrorist attacks. The conflict has also crippled Gaza’s water system, putting over a million children at risk of dying from dehydration.

On the health front, the urgent need to address climate change and its impact on health is being emphasized. Climate change is already causing significant health challenges, such as extreme weather events and the spread of infectious diseases. The importance of reducing emissions and decarbonizing energy systems to mitigate the impacts of climate change is stressed.

In the realm of vaccines, the Pfizer COVID vaccine has come under scrutiny for not being tested at scale in a randomized controlled trial before approval. Independent scientists have found excessive levels of plasmid DNA contamination in the vaccines, raising safety concerns.

In the United States, the impact of COVID policies on children’s learning and the economy is being questioned. The negative effects of school closures and the policy of masking young children have been highlighted. The American Academy of Pediatrics has been criticized for supporting this policy.

Finally, in the world of entertainment, Elon Musk’s brutally honest assessment of George Soros’ political motives has shocked Joe Rogan. The Biden administration’s removal of Greg Abbott’s Texas border fence and Stephen Colbert’s agreement with Donald Trump’s comparison of himself to Nelson Mandela have also made headlines.

Doctors and ‘experts’ who got COVID policy wrong are asking for forgiveness.
