Bird flu is back for Thanksgiving, killing millions of turkeys and jacking up prices – A new, deadly strain of the bird flu has killed millions of chickens and turkey this year, pushing the price of eggs and turkey products up in advance of Thanksgiving, Reuters reported Tuesday.

More than 47 million birds have been killed or culled this year in the U.S. as a result of the disease, quickly approaching the record of 50.5 million set in 2015, slashing production for poultry products and contributing to rising prices, Reuters reported Wednesday. The particular virus affecting flocks this year is a variant of the H5N1 avian flu, known as the “goose” or “Guangdong” lineage, and has proven to be unusually resilient to the rising summer temperatures that typically reduce the impact of the disease. – READ MORE

Yuma Hospital CEO: ‘Open’ Border Is Draining Us, We’ve Given out $20 Million in Uncompensated Care to Migrants in Six Months – During a portion of an interview with NBC News aired on Friday’s broadcast of “NBC Nightly News,” Yuma Regional Medical Center President CEO Dr. Robert Trenschel stated that the flow of people over the border has to be stopped because providing uncompensated care to migrants is draining the hospital of resources and that if the borders are going to be “open like they are, then there has to be a payment source for these individuals.”

During a report on the migrant situation in Yuma, AZ, NBC News National Correspondent Gabe Gutierrez said that, in the last year, “there have been more than 300,000 illegal border crossings in the area around Yuma. That’s three times the city’s entire population of nearly 100,000. It’s an all-time record.” – READ MORE

Nothing But Welfare Queens? Endless American Aid Flowing To Zelensky & Tsai Ing-wen – As it pertains to the American public, Ukraine’s response to the Russian invasion can be summed up with two words: “Zelensky demands.” To date, Washington elites and their politicians have been happy to provide—at public expense—lining their own pockets in the process.

As of this writing, U.S. aid for Ukraine has reached approximately $67.5 billion, a figure greater than Russia’s entire 2021 military budget. According to the State Department, this support includes $15.2 billion in direct military assistance. The support comes although 60-70% of lethal aid never reaches the front lines, according to a now-redacted CBS interview with on-the-ground activists. – READ MORE

Almost All Corporate Executives Believe That Economic Conditions Are About To Get Significantly Worse – Are the months ahead going to be very painful for our economy? This is something that I have been arguing for a long time, and apparently the vast majority of corporate CEOs now agree with me. Of course economic conditions are not exactly good at this moment. Core U.S. inflation just rose to a 40 year high, mortgage rates just hit the highest level in more than two decades, home values are plummeting all over the nation, and retail sales in the United States unexpectedly fell in September.

Unfortunately, it appears that economic conditions are about to get significantly worse. – READ MORE
