The FBI search of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate was quickly blasted by the former president’s Republican colleagues and a throng of supporters, who rallied against the raid outside his Florida resort on Monday.
The unprecedented search of a former president’s home signaled an escalation of the investigation into missing White House documents – one of several probes into Trump’s time in office, his role in the Jan 6 attacks, and his business dealings.
Trump’s reaction – to condemn the raid as “not necessary or appropriate” – has resonated with his legion of MAGA fans, many of whom say he won the 2020 election and that Democrats will try anything to stop him from running again in 2024.
Against this backdrop, DailyMail.com is spotlighting recent polls that provide a snapshot of Americans’ attitudes toward Trump, the FBI, the DOJ, the Jan 6 hearings, and simmering political divisions that could boil over into violence.
The FBI has an image problem. Overall, 47% of Americans distrust the national crime-fighting bureau, and 46% trust it, according to a Golden/TIPP Poll from May. See this in the chart below.

Respondents expressed similarly mixed feelings towards the DOJ.

“*” indicates required fields

Oddly enough, it is not just one party that distrusts the FBI and DOJ, though today, Republicans distrust more – but this may change depending on the event and who is in power. What is interesting is that Independents show some of the highest distrusting group.

Of course, recent events of the raid on the Trump residence at Mar-a-Lago may change people’s opinions. First, see below for some background information on this recent raid on Trump.

Part 1 – Why Did the DOJ and FBI Execute the Raid on Trump – The Story Behind the Documents
Part 2 – Why Did the DOJ and FBI Execute the Raid on Trump – The Evidence Within the Documents
Part 3 – Why Did the DOJ and FBI Execute the Raid on Trump – A Culmination of Four Years of Threats and Betrayals
Part 4 – What Was in The Trump Documents Creating Such Fear in DOJ and FBI

Once the dust settles on this Trump raid, will trust in the FBI and DOJ fall even further? Or will the political camps stay with their opinions regardless of the events on the ground? One would think critical thinking would occur, and more agreement could occur – don’t hold your breath. It will be interesting to see a more recent poll as events unfold.

Have the J6 Democrat hearings changed people’s opinions?
The House January 6th Committee has tried to make the case that former President Donald Trump bears direct responsibility for what happened at the U.S. Capitol last year. The latest Monmouth (“Mon-muth”) University Poll, though, suggests it hasn’t moved the needle with the American public. In general, public opinion stands pretty much the same as it was before the recent headline-grabbing testimony of former presidential aides during the last three public hearings. See this in the table below and see the details here.
If this recent J6 opinion poll is any indication, it may mean that people’s opinions are so entrenched within their belief systems that events on the ground will change their opinions little.
So, where do we go from here after the outrageous events we have recently witnessed? What will the next steps be?

We have all heard the stories about overpopulation and a looming crisis that it may pose. Many stories say that there are evil people out there who believe it so much that they are actively trying to reduce the population with various forms of policies and even potentially via nefarious means.
You may recall the Georgia Guides Stones that were recently destroyed, where locals blamed conspiracy theories and promoted this idea of depopulation. One of the key points of the Georgia Guide Stones was, “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.”
Many in mainstream “Leftists” media have jumped onto this idea as well. Never let a good crisis go to waste to achieve even more government control. Correct? See Leftists’ preacher Bill Maher in his “New Rule” segment – “Let the Population Collapse,” in the video below, trying to scare you into these ideological depopulation policies.

Others say that the “population crisis” is a scam. Former Greenpeace President Dr. Patrick Moore says the elites have a “suicide pact” to reduce the world’s population. He goes on to say, “We’re now facing a situation where a huge number of very powerful organizations and elites at an international and at national levels are calling for policies that are basically a suicide pact. Basically a death wish of some sort.”
See in the video below, where Dr. Patrick Moore details these plans where though the ideological goals may be depopulation, it is a money-making scheme as well.

But what does the data say in terms of the world population?

Since the mid-1900s, the global population has followed a steep upwards trajectory. While much of this growth has been concentrated in China and India, researchers expect the next wave of growth to occur in Africa. As of 2019, for example, the average woman in Niger is having over six children in her lifetime.
At the opposite end of this spectrum are a number of countries that appear to be shrinking from a population perspective. To shed some light on this somewhat surprising trend, we’ve visualized the top 20 countries by population decline. See this in the chart below and learn more with a table that lists all countries in table form here.

The current thinking of our “elite” experts are telling us that the population will peak globally to about 10 billion on the planet by the year 2100. See this in the chart below and learn more here.

The following chart shows where the population growth will come from. The winner (or loser as it may be) will be Africa if the current trend in place continues. All other regions will be near stagnant or in decline.

Some believe our population has already stopped growing because of misleading media headlines about declining birth rates. The rate of population growth and average family size has been shrinking, but the total number of people added to the planet every year has, in fact, been increasing until recently.
For example, in 1950, the world population was 2.5 billion and grew at 1.9% per year, resulting in an absolute increase of around 47 million people. Today, the growth rate is less than 1% per year, but because our total population is more than three times larger, the absolute annual increase is more than 60 million people per year.
Perhaps the fertility rate models of these experts have got it wrong. It is possible we have over-estimated the population growth. Under a low fertility rate model, we may see the world population decline by one billion by the year 2100. See this in the chart below these fertility rate ranges and learn more here.

But even the above low fertility rate model assumes that all will be well on planet Earth. This may be a false assumption. Consider some of the following scenarios that could change the global population dynamics.

What if a more serious pandemic hits the world, reducing population growth significantly? Could this not even extend to other natural disasters as well?
The world has known relative peace since post-WWII. What if geopolitical concerns bleed into conflicts (war) that cause depopulation, as it has done in the past?
If the global economy suffers a major collapse due to mismanagement (or nefarious means), could economic hard times cause a lowering in fertility rates? – as families chose to have even fewer children.
As technology changed the family dynamics in the 20th century, perhaps the technological advancements of sex robots cause humans to engage with virtual sex partners rather than real ones. Could this drive fertility rates even lower than the lowest fertility rate scenarios?

Perhaps you can think of other scenarios that could change the global population dynamics. Elon Musk, who often is contrary to many mainstream ideas, suggests that humanity’s biggest threat is population decline – not overpopulation. See his comments in the video below.

Should we allow our elites and political leaders to play God and tell us, and worse yet, be allowed to manage the global population – considering how well they have managed other issues across the globe? Give us your take in the comment section below on whether we have an overpopulation problem on the planet today.

What Do The Facts Show? The Data Behind Manchin and Schumer’s “Inflation Reduction Act” Contradict The Name

NPR – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., have released preliminary details of a bill to address climate change, taxes, health care, and inflation.
The agreement is a major reversal for Democrats, who had narrowed their ambitions for the package to address looming lapses in the Affordable Care Act and changes to prescription drug prices after Manchin raised concerns over approving more spending during record inflation.
“After many months of negotiations, we have finalized legislative text that will invest approximately $300 billion in Deficit Reduction and $369.75 billion in Energy Security and Climate Change programs over the next 10 years,” the senators said in a joint statement. “The investments will be fully paid for by closing tax loopholes on wealthy individuals and corporations.”
The legislation — called the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 — would also continue expansions to the Affordable Care Act that passed during the pandemic through 2025 and allow Medicare to pursue lower drug costs by negotiating directly with drug companies. Democrats say the plan avoids any new taxes on families making $400,000 or less and does not include any new taxes on small businesses.
Read the bill here. In a statement after the deal was announced, Biden praised it as “the action the American people have been waiting for.” If all goes well for the Democrats, it may pass. Some more conservative critiques may praise it – as it is not as bad as Biden’s previous trillion-dollar “Build Back Better” program, which is now effectively dead. But is it really deficit neutral?
What is in the bill?
The bill includes $430 billion in new spending on energy and health insurance investments and more than pays for itself by raising minimum taxes for big companies and enforcing existing tax laws, Schumer and Manchin said in a statement.
Manchin and Schumer, in a statement, said the bill would reduce the nation’s deficit by about $300 billion, lower carbon emissions by about 40% by the year 2030, and allow the government’s Medicare health plan to negotiate prescription drug prices. But they did not provide specifics.
Republicans were quick to criticize the move. “I can’t believe that Senator Manchin is agreeing to a massive tax increase in the name of climate change when our economy is in a recession,” Senator Lindsey Graham said. McConnell also criticized the bill, saying it would “kill many thousands of American jobs.”

The following is a basic table of the plan below.

Here are the basic problems with this bill. One could reasonably argue that this bill will actually add to inflation and not reduce it. Perhaps they should relabel the bill to the – “Inflation Agumentation Act of 2022.” Consider the following.

There are no spending cuts. It is merely growing the size of the federal government (by nearly10%). The last thing we need is “bigger” government, considering they have not done such a wonderful job to this point.
Raising taxes on businesses and price fixing products (i.e., prescription drugs) will only largely be passed on to the customer. This will add to inflation.
In terms of investments that it reports – there are significant problems with the assumptions of the two major categories cited.

Healthcare benefit costs that it proposes to pay are not investments – rather mere consumption and add to federal expenditures. These also may have mechanisms in them that causes these budgets to grow over time.
Climate Change spending is another ruse. It will create yet another slush fund of wasteful spending.

Imagine another $124bn to be squeezed out of the American people by the IRS, which will add cost to the regulatory environment and will stifle business.

Depending on the level of productivity of the “investments,” which will be poor at best, and the growth of government – instead of subtracting the two numbers (in the table above) from each other, more realistically, they should be added together as more budget-busting economic effects on the American people. Another trillion dollar boondoggle from Congressional politicians.
US federal spending and revenues vary year to year based on economic cycles and government policy. The chart below shows more of an average over the years until 2019 and projections to 2025 – learn more here. The blue line represents average revenues, and the red line represents average outlays in government spending. One can see that the two are widening over time and will obviously explode in our economic faces one day. The widening gap on a long-term trend timeline has been structural in nature. To change the trend will require political will, which has not been seen in many years.
The unfortunate reality, this new deal (Inflation Reduction Act of 2022) cooked up by Manchin and Schumer will merely exacerbate the inflation problem in America. Americans need to heed the warnings from our founding fathers.
