Lone Star Standoff & British Citizen Armies

Originally published at: Lone Star Standoff & British Citizen Armies – Peak Prosperity

The Federal Reserve Inspector General’s report on former Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan’s trading activities has raised eyebrows due to its lack of investigation into key aspects of potential insider trading. Despite clearing Kaplan of violating laws, rules, regulations, or policies related to trading activities, the report did not delve into whether Kaplan was shorting the market during the COVID pandemic or if his brokerage firm was cloning his trades for its own benefit. The report’s incomplete information and lack of investigation into whether Kaplan’s trades were purchases or sales have led to questions about the integrity of the investigation.

In a related development, the Federal Reserve (Fed) has announced that it will stop making new loans to banks through its Bank Term Funding Program (BTFP) on March 11. The Fed has also revealed that it will immediately shut down the arbitrage that banks have been using to profit from the BTFP. The BTFP balance has been increasing since November, but it is expected to stop growing now that the arbitrage opportunity has been closed.

Meanwhile, the European Central Bank (ECB) has asked certain banks to monitor social media activity in order to detect any negative sentiment that could lead to a deposit run. This increased scrutiny comes after the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Credit Suisse in 2022, which triggered concerns about banks’ ability to withstand sudden liquidity shocks.

On the border security front, the argument that illegal border crossings are solely driven by people seeking a better life is debunked by the fact that individuals can follow legal immigration processes. Under the Biden administration, there has been a rise in known terrorists entering the US, despite Washington downplaying the threat to national security. The US-Mexico border has also become a major entry point for fentanyl, with authorities seizing a staggering 27,293 pounds of the drug.

In response to the border crisis, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has declared the migrant crisis an “invasion” and invoked Texas’s constitutional authority to defend and protect itself. The situation in Texas has come to a boiling point at Eagle Pass, where the Texas National Guard have taken control of a local park which illegal immigrants use as a landing zone after crossing the Rio Grande.

In international news, the head of the British Army, General Sir Patrick Sanders, has called for the training of a “citizen army” in preparation for future land warfare. He emphasized that simply increasing reserve forces would not be sufficient and highlighted the threat posed by Russia. Gen Sir Patrick has previously expressed concerns about the growing threat of war and the lack of readiness in Britain.

Finally, the annual gathering in Davos, Switzerland, where wealthy and influential individuals convene, has been criticized for its perceived agenda of reestablishing feudalism. The control of money, energy, and food is highlighted as the means through which these entities seek to dominate populations. The farmers’ uprising against oppressive policies is highlighted as a sign of growing resistance.

What the Inspector General did not investigate is everything that a real insider trading investigation would have encompassed.

The SCOTUS fucked up bad. They failed to “read the room” when they stayed the 5th Circuits order. I would bet money that they regret this decision. They could have prevented a potential constitutional crisis and failed.

I believe Governor Abbott has the moral high ground but is on shaky legal grounds. Neither side can blink now and the likelihood of this resolving in an amicable way is very low.

Biden has not only been a failure as a president, he has turned his back on the US Constitution and broken his oath of office. He is allowing this border crisis to happen for political gain in future census years. The census counts all people and not just citizens. This will give greater political power to the urban centers. The US Senate was made precisely to prevent the more populous states from taking all the political power.
