Companies tied to housing revising guidance due to supply chain. Commentary from our builder survey this month indicates things getting worse before they get better. Homes sitting, waiting for materials (dead days). Big delays in windows. Delta outbreaks. In sum, a crapshoot. 🧵
#Nashville builder: “It's a crap shoot. Some municipalities will issue permits in 1 week, & others are 6-9 months behind. Supply chain is a mess. Windows are now 7 months out, cabinets are 6 months out, etc.”
#Chicago builder: “Build cycle increased due to backordered materials including bathtubs, appliances, & ceramic tile. Trades are much more limited in availability & now have some ‘dead days’ with no activity.”

⚠️ GROSS COI REVEALED: In an extraordinary and fantastically written investigative report, @theintercept's @rose_n_adams unveils how @UHC co-opted @zackcooperYale's #surprisemedicalbill study, all while #Congress embraced it as "academic" and "unbiased" work to write #SMB law.
1⃣ This lays bare how #UnitedHealth has manipulated #surprisebill "research" to enrich itself at the expense of all #patients and the frontline #medical providers risking their lives over the past few years of #Covid.

2⃣ The study was foundational in the #SMB debate, and...
...Congress was duped. We believe that Congressional #investigations are now warranted by the #House and #Senate #Judiciary Committees. @HouseJudiciary @JudiciaryDems

1/ The Democrat Political Playbook for Civil War—a Heritage of Hate, Racism, Terror and Hypocrisy

If you search the following events for yourself, you will find that we are reliving a Political Playbook when the Democrat Party weaponize racism to wage political war.
2/ Rhetorical incitement, race-bating, terror, looting, rioting, impeachments, RINO insurgents, guerrilla-style one-on-one crime tactics—you name it, they’ve done it.

A look at what the Democrat Party has in store for us all if we don’t unite & DEMAND an emergency election.
3/ The Democrats Civil War playbook weaponized racism and political insurrection. Even burning, looting & riots were a feature of the radical Democrat’s campaign of intimidation in places like Baltimore. In the history of Ancient Rome, this was referred to as ‘sacking.’

The Bankers

Franklin Delano Roosevelt – who is said to have British (Joo) bloodline – was a principal conspirator in causing The United States Of America to go into grave, perpetual and irreversible debt.  Such debt being designed, as set up by Section 4 of the 14 Amendment.

Accordingly, comprehend that the Great Depression was premeditated and hence orchestrated.  One measure to accomplish this was: There were tons of Federal Reserve Notes – in 20 dollar denomination – dumped into circulation just prior to the big crash.
3)
Just like the income Tax takes money out of circulation to thwart hyper –inflation, this calculated measure was meant to cause hyper-inflation; moreover it accordingly accelerated the devaluation...

Reporte Confidencial del Pentágono
El @GobiernoMX rechaza a 54 agentes federales de la #DEA en mexico y cancela toda acción de cooperación para la investigación y detención de peligrosos criminales entre #México y #EstadosUnidos lo cual rompe el acuerdo de la Iniciativa Mérida
🧵
En administraciones anteriores era notorio el trabajo coordinado de fuerzas policiales pero con la cancelación del programa Merida, y con la liberación de Ovidio Guzmán a #WashingtonDC le queda muy claro que su socio comercial y vecino, es decir #Mexico es cómplice de criminales.
Director de Asuntos Internos del Buro de Investigaciones, mostró fotos que la Policía Federal y el Ejército Mexicano mandaban al FBI para analizar identidades de cadáveres y escena del crimen en los gobiernos de #Calderón y #Peña, sobre las masacres del narco, hoy ya no lo hay.

Here's a housing🧵to chew on over weekend. Mid-June update from 100+home builders across country. 1) rumblings of price ceiling. 2) slightly shrinking pool of qualified buyers. 3) some home releases not selling out immediately. 4) normal summer slowing as vacations take priority.
#Austin builder: “Some interest lists are shrinking & others are not. Seeing buyers who are no longer able or willing to afford the monthly payment. Definitely seeing attrition here. Frustration that prices continued going up without an opportunity to purchase.”
#Dallas builder: “Interest lists are definitely shrinking because of pricing. Some drop off is happening due to price. But the re-sale market is still so tight it hasn’t dropped substantially. Extremely concerned about pricing going forward.”

New home sales fell in May, Y/Y & M/M. Theme of the month was sales decline by builder design. Few comments on demand slowing or skittish buyers, even w/new home prices +18% Y/Y nationally (survey record). Builder commentary from across the country per our survey to follow...
#Nashville builder: “Gapped out. Sales resume in June as new communities & phases start to open. By moving ability to contract on inventory homes later to finished drywall stage (window installation stage previously), expect sales to show continued decline. Decline by design.”
#Charlotte builder: “Paused sales from mid-May to mid-June in all communities & will selectively release homes for sale in the last 2 weeks of June & coming months. Sales look lower vs. last month but was capped due to limited lot availability & no inventory.”

🇺🇸#USA 🇩🇪#Germany 🇷🇺#Russia #WashingtonDC #NorthStream2 #NordStream2 #SANCTIONS

In its most recent report, released under the Protecting Europe's Energy Security Act (PEESA), the US State Department listed four vessels and five individuals, including Nord Stream 2 AG and
its CEO Matthias Warnig, as having been involved in the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. They will now be subject to US sanctions, as required by PEESA. Furthermore, 9 vessels will be allocated because they are owned or
operated by the Federal State Budgetary Institution Marine Rescue Service, which was also stated in the report. However, the Secretary of State announced that the sanctions on Mr. Warnig, Nord Stream 2, and its corporate officers will be waived due to national security concerns.

Here’s on the ground local home builder commentary from across the country per our April survey. A lot of builders are pressing the pause button &/or slowing things down until construction costs moderate & they can catch up with sales. Worries about buyer price ceilings too...
#Chicago home builder commentary: “We sold all of the homes we had in early 2021 & haven’t started anything new, & may not due to the cost of construction. Can’t hold pricing for clients longer than 45 days with rising material pricing.”
#Nashville home builder commentary: “Pray for lower lumber prices.”

'#Taliban as proxies in #Pakistan's endless war' is a cliché from the 2000s. It's outdated. Time to take stock of new realities in Pakistani military thinking because the #US #NATO & #Pakistan must prevent a new civil war in #Afghanistan. /1

No one can win in #Afghanistan. Not even the #Taliban. Some actors would love to see a permanent Afghan war of attrition that engulfs #America+#Pakistan+#Afghanistan. Make no mistake: a new #Islamabad+#WashingtonDC blame game will expedite such a war. /2

What's happening in #Afghanistan is by no means #Pakistan's proxy war. But it is the proxy war of multiple actors who want Afghanistan to be a permanent bleeding ground for #America #Pakistan #NATO. /3

#Thread about #WashingtonDC #UnitedNations :

The residents of “DC”, as the city is popularly known, are American citizens and taxpayers, but have no voting representatives in Congress.

nzz.ch/pro-global/usa…
The one person who represents the capital as a delegate in the House of Representatives may speak but not vote.
Since the ratification of the 23rd amendment in 1961, the Washingtonians have only been allowed to vote in presidential elections and elect a minimum number of members of the Electoral College.
