New Home Sales Advanced in September
New home sales advanced 12.3% in September, the largest monthly jump in over a year. Amid mounting housing market unaffordability, new home sales are still rising on trend as builders successfully employ price discounts and mortgage rate buydowns to sell homes. Wells Fargo
CFNAI Increased in September
The Chicago Fed National Activity Index (CFNAI) increased to +0.02 in September from -0.22 in August. All four broad categories of indicators used to construct the index increased from August, and two categories made positive contributions in September. The index’s three-month moving average (CFNAI-MA3) moved up to a neutral value in September from -0.14 in August.
What do the numbers mean? A zero value for the monthly index has been associated with the national economy expanding at its historical trend (average) rate of growth; negative values with below-average growth (in standard deviation units); and positive values with above-average growth. Periods of economic expansion have historically been associated with values of the CFNAI-MA3 above –0.70 and the CFNAI Diffusion Index above –0.35. Conversely, periods of economic contraction have historically been associated with values of the CFNAI-MA3 below –0.70 and the CFNAI Diffusion Index below –0.35. An increasing likelihood of a period of sustained increasing inflation has historically been associated with values of the CFNAI-MA3 above +0.70 more than two years into an economic expansion. Similarly, a substantial likelihood of a period of sustained increasing inflation has historically been associated with values of the CFNAI-MA3 above +1.00 more than two years into an economic expansion.
Representative Mike Johnson (R-LA) was voted in as Speaker of the House, ending the cluster fuck created by Matt Gaetz. Back to the business at hand. Please. Mike Johnson is a good conservative legislator; things will be fine.
The State of Israel is in a war to save itself from evil people who have sworn to wipe Israel off the map and to kill every Jewish person in the world. They can pause when every member of Hamas and whomever comes after them is dead. This has been going on for thousands of years. It is time to end it before the world goes to war once again, in the name of God. The Palestinians wanted their own place, the Jews gave them Gaza, the Gazans “elected” Hamas to rule their land. They have been forewarned to leave and every avenue to spare civilian casualties is being taken.
That the government of the United States has the audacity to ask them to “pause” is an affront to freedom and democracy. That we have students protesting against Israel, legislators in Congress opposing Israel is despicable. All of this poison comes from the left wing in our country, they are destroying our country, you can see her unravel more every day with the constant propagandist bullshit. The fact that university professors, legislators and ignorant students are condoning the beheading of babies, the murder and rape of women and children is a horrific stain on the USA.
This is not who we are as a people and things must change, as I have said before. These bastards on the left, the progressives, the leftists, the Marxist Democrats are ALL evil people. You all must take a moment, look, and see what they are doing to our great country. It is an unforgivable sin.

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.”
