All Items Index Increased 3.7% Over Past 12 Months
All items index increased 3.7% over past twelve months. The Consumer Price Index for all urban consumers (CPI-U) rose 0.4 percent in September after increasing 0.6 percent in August. Over the past twelve months, the all items index increased 3.7 percent before seasonal adjustment. This is still 1.7 percent higher than the Fed target of 2 percent inflation.
US Raw Steel Production Down from Previous Week
In the week ending October 7, US raw steel production was 1,698,000 net tons at an ACUR of 74.7 percent, down 1.4 percent from the previous week ending September 30.
US Drill Rigs Running Down from Previous Week
There were 619 drill rigs running in the US last week, down four rigs from the previous week, which is down 143 rigs from one year ago. Canadian drillers shut 11 rigs, to 180, down 35 rigs from one year ago.
As of Thursday morning, we know at least 27 US citizens have been killed by Hamas during their brutal attack on Israel this past weekend. 900 Israelis have been killed, over 2400 injured thus far. Those rats must be wiped off the face of the planet and I hope retribution is swift and deadly. A terrible situation for the USA with such obviously weak leadership in Washington. 14 Americans dead? I suspect Trump would have dusted Gaza by now, if Netanyahu would permit it.
It is disheartening to see that the Muslim members of the “squad” have sided with Hamas in this brutal attack, naturally, they blame it on Israel. Rashida Tlaib “slams Israels’s ‘apartheid’ government. The Jewish people have offered land for peace for decades, they do not accept. What they want is the destruction of the state of Israel, same as all radical Muslims. I do not believe they will ever be successful in that endeavor.
What is mis-wired with the students at Harvard University that they would be siding with Hamas on the attacks on Israel? It is sickening. This woke bullshit has got to stop. Do these children even realize they are the leaders (?) of the future? The Hamas animals are butchering and decapitating children, raping women, dragging bodies through the streets and American student believe they are right? And this crap is going on all over our country. We will be forced to revolt against this garbage. I did not hear the White House denounce these actions. Did you?
Every time I hear Karine Jean-Pierre speak I want to vomit. One lie after another, no real answer to any question. She is a complete waste.
In the meantime, the House of Representatives is still without a speaker, Steve Scalise has been nominated, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Oh) threw his support behind him. Should be a cake walk, but no, there are GOP holdouts. Why is my party so fucked up? Because 98% of them are Republican in Name Only, a bunch of self-serving morons. The whole Congress needs to be cleaned out from the Marxist communists on the left to the whining cry babies on the right. Our country is fucked…until and unless we re-elect Donald John Trump as president so he can finish what he started and fix what this administration has done to screw the people of the United States and the world. In my view…
“Gold Bar” Bob Menedez, indicted on Federal charges a week or so back, has now been indicted of conspiring to act as an illegal foreign agent of Egypt… goodbye Bob, and good riddance.
It occurs to me that the Marxist Democrats are thieves. This guy Menendez has been enriching himself from his office for many years, he was lucky to have a hung jury in his first indictment because he was guilty of the charges.
He gets off, thinks he can continue to get away with his corruption-and he does, for 7 or 8 years, now he is on the hot seat again with nearly a half million dollars stuffed in envelopes in his home. I believe he also had 2 kilos of gold bars (don’t quote me on that, but he did have gold bars).
Now we come to the Biden crime family. The SOB has been sucking off the government teat for 50 years. He owns multi-million dollar homes. How does that happen on a senators pay? The evidence of corruption with foreign governments is overwhelming, they just need to find a concrete connection to the president. It is out there somewhere for sure.
Do you believe these are the only two people in our government that are taking bribes in gifts, cash, precious metals? I do not and anyone who thinks these are isolated cases have their head stuck so far up their own ass that they cannot see.
The tax gap-the difference between what is owed and paid to the government-widened to $688 billion in tax year 2021, which the IRS claims “underscores the importance” of the need for increased compliance

TEDDY ROOSEVELT ON IMMIGRANTS IN AMERICA…1907
In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
