cacnelcultureMAGAPAC supports the protection of our civil liberties under the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We have a particular focus on the First Amendment which embodies the liberty of free expression through speech and the media, freedom of religious belief and practice, freedom of political belief,  and the right for peaceful assembly to appeal to the government to modify policies and eradicate injustices.

We support the Second Amendment which protects our right to keep and bear arms and the Fourth Amendment which prevents the government from unreasonable search and seizure of our individual property.

While we acknowledge the equal protection clause under the 14th amendment which provides access to free public elementary and secondary school education for all US citizens and legal residents, we are also proponents of school choice which grants parents the ability to select the best educational option for their children including traditional public, public charter, parochial, private or home school.

China Syndrome And Taper Tantrums

China Syndrome And Taper Tantrums Authored b Bill Blain via MorningPorridge.com, China Syndrome and Taper Tantrums – just two of many things to fret about… Some of the heat was taken out the escalating China Syndrome yesterday when the Chinese regulator held a “secret” meeting with global firms, while Jay Powell took the pressure out of immediate taper fears. Both issues remain sources of massive future pressure on markets – they are sorted for now, but not resolved! There are, apparently, only two things to factor into markets this morning: China rowing back on its market-crashing “regulatory” attacks on the “system”, and The Fed’s mixed “We’re going to talk about when to taper but its lower-for-longer in the meantime.” If these are the only things you are factoring this morning..  then look again. Let’s start with the China Syndrome One big investment theme this year has been how much to put into China… but for anyone who bought the story, like myself, it’s been expensive. The Chinese seem determined to crash their own market – a new version of the China Syndrome. Yesterday they finally noticed and the Chinese Securities Regulatory Commission “invited” a dozen or so prominent Western investment banks and fund managers (the usual suspects; Goldman, JPM, Blackrock et al) to listen to scripted explanations for their recent actions in banning educational IPOs, and touching on greater regulation e-commerce and fintech payments. It was a rushed affair, the news carefully leaked to calm a gathering series of panicky headlines about enforced China liquidations, a sell-off in bonds and FX, and a general rush by global investors to dump any and all China and HK assets. The market sort-of-stabilised. As always there are two ways to read yesterday’s meeting. It was either the Chinese waking up to the damage done

The Pointless Drive To Make Masks Great Again

The Pointless Drive To Make Masks Great Again Authored by Brian McGlinchey via Stark Realities, Just when the forces of rationality had seemingly established a beachhead in the public health domain, they’re back on defense again, as the CDC declares vaccinated and unvaccinated people should wear masks indoors in areas of the country experiencing high transmission, and every schoolchild should be condemned to wear a mask all day long. The moves, which come in response to surging case counts, seem to demonstrate an impulse that animates many questionable government policies: “We have to do something,” regardless of whether that something can be reasonably expected to have a material impact on the problem at hand. Biden double-masking, via Reuters/Adobe Stock Ample Reason to Doubt Masks’ Value Most public and media discussion of mask policy reflects a foundational assumption that may well be false—namely, that widespread, all-purpose mask-wearing has had any meaningful impact on slowing the spread. Intuition tells us covering our faces must be worthwhile. After all, if the virus is emitted from our noses and mouths, covering those openings has to make a big difference, right? That gut feeling misleads us, though, because we tend to only think of the virus in terms of visible, tangible droplets masks can absorb. Indeed, the initial scientific consensus held that Covid-19 was exclusively transmitted by droplets, prompting the emphasis on distancing six feet from each other—room enough for gravity to pull those droplets out of the air. That exclusive-droplet-transmission consensus proved wrong. We now know Covid-19 is spread to a great extent via aerosols—a term that describes particles so small they can easily float along in the air, traveling well beyond six feet. Even that description fails to convey how unfathomably small Covid-19 viral particles actually are—and why masks are a mismatch. How small are they? As little as 20 nanometers. That
