The Redheaded Libertarian Answers the Question: “Why Is Everything So Gay?”

Some are starting to wake up to the fact that it’s not some misguided marketing executives or woke-blinded CEOs thinking that embracing the trans-supremacy agenda will increase business. Many of them engage in corporate wokeness in hopes that they’ll get a good CEI score without suffering too much damage to their brand.

According to Josie the Redheaded Libertarian, it comes down CEI. Here’s a thread:

Why is everything gay?

Buckle up, we’re going down this gay rabbit hole.

The CEI— Corporate Equality Index— is a woke credit score, that judges companies based on how many woke issues they are pushing.

1. What is “woke”?
A word co-oped from the black community by gender activists that was infected with Neo Marxism.

2. Who made up & gives the score?
From my understanding, The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), sends lobbyists to companies and gives them a list of demands, and if they don’t comply with these demands, the woke investors put pressure on the boards, activists are mobilized, advertising campaigns are shut down, and anyone who continues to do business with the poorly scored company, will also be penalized.

3. And who is funding the HRC?
Open Society Foundation.

4. Who runs Open Society Foundation?
Uh oh. Definitely don’t google that.

Essentially, if you don’t get a good score the Lizard God-King of the world doesn’t let your business exist.

This fake score is everywhere and is controlling everyone and everything with threats and coercion

This despotic rot is the result of a compromised country.

If we want to end this corporate idiocy, we have to make CEOs and boards more concerned about how freedom-loving Americans will respond to their decisions to go woke than how the CEI overlords will punish them if they don’t.

Whether DC Defaults or Not, Physical Gold Is Attracting Attention

Will the White House and Congress come to an agreement to raise the debt ceiling before the U.S. government defaults? It’s a question that has been driving many investors’ decision-making for a couple of weeks and it will only become more relevant with every passing day.

But many investors are turning to gold and silver now knowing that whether an agreement is reached or not, America has passed the point of financial stability from the result. A last-minute deal will still send shockwaves through most financial sectors. A default could be cataclysmic for some markets. Precious metals are seen by many economists to be the safe haven in both scenarios as gold and silver are poised to perform in the coming days and weeks.

According to Gillian Tett at Financial Times [emphasis added]:

How can an investor protect themselves against a US government default? Once, that was a crazy question to ask. But today the bizarre has become almost normal in American politics.

And while US president Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy have both indicated they want to cut a deal to raise America’s $31tn debt ceiling — and thus avoid a putative default — significant sticking points remain.

So Wall Street analysts are now furtively weighing the protection options as they grapple with this new tail risk. Some, like those at JPMorgan, argue that “diversification is the best defence,” and urge investors to “consider currencies and precious metals like the Japanese yen, the Swiss franc, and gold [and] high quality international equities.” That sounds sensible.

However, others are more focused: RBC Capital markets last week suggested that “gold looks like one of the few likely candidates that would bear the burden of resulting market flows” from default anxiety.

And a survey from Bloomberg this week echoes this. Gold is the top safety choice for professional and retail investors, by a long margin, with 52 and 46 per cent, respectively, citing this.

The Liberty Daily benefits when readers purchase from either of our America First precious metals sponsors:

  • Our Gold Guy is a nimble company that focuses on physical bullion. Whether investors are looking to diversify by having $5,000 or more in physical precious metals discreetly shipped to their home or if they want to move a retirement account into a bullion-backed IRA, Ira Bershatsky is ready to help.
  • Genesis Gold Group is larger and specializes in self-directed IRAs backed by physical gold and silver coins. They are an ideal long-term solution to rollover or transfer retirement accounts.

Will there be a deal reached? In normal political times, it would seem very likely that the House GOP would fold just enough for the White House to save face, then both sides would claim victory and we would move on. But these are not normal times, so anyone’s guess is as good as anyone else’s. In both scenarios, it behooves Americans to do what they can to protect their wealth or retirement.

Chicago Beach Opens, Then Closes Almost Immediately Because Somebody Had to Start Shooting

Following its opening for the summer season, a well-liked beach in Chicago faced an immediate closure due to an incident involving gunfire. On Friday, just hours after welcoming visitors, North Avenue Beach had to be temporarily shut down.

Reports from FOX 32 indicate that around 1:26 p.m., a disturbance broke out among a group of approximately 80 to 100 teenagers gathered at the beach. The altercation escalated, leading to an individual brandishing a firearm and discharging shots. Fortunately, no injuries were reported, and law enforcement swiftly took a juvenile suspect into custody.

This unfortunate incident occurred shortly after the city had officially opened 22 beaches for the summer, adding to concerns regarding public safety. Officials have been particularly vigilant in light of the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, striving to prevent a recurrence of last year’s unfortunate events. During the same holiday period in 2022, Chicago experienced a distressing toll, with nine murders and 42 injuries resulting from shootings throughout the city.

As a precautionary measure, authorities have announced an indefinite closure of the beach. Additionally, bag checks are being conducted at checkpoints along the city’s beachfront, aimed at enhancing security measures. These efforts are intended to prioritize public safety and ensure that residents and visitors can enjoy the beaches with a sense of security.
