The leading manufacturers of assault rifles used to perpetrate the deadliest mass shootings in the United States have collected more than $1 billion in revenue over the past decade as gun violence across the country has surged, according to a House investigation set to be presented on Capitol Hill. The findings, released before a congressional hearing on the marketing of assault rifles, indicate that the gun industry has thrived by selling and marketing military-grade weapons to civilians, specifically targeting and playing to the insecurities of young men, while some have made thinly veiled references to white supremacist groups. The House Committee on Oversight and Reform opened an investigation into the gun manufacturing industry in May after the gun massacre in Uvalde, Texas, that killed 19 elementary school students and two teachers and a racially motivated mass shooting in a Buffalo supermarket that killed 10 people.

Around Half Of Older Americans Can’t Afford Essential Expenses:

Rising inflation coupled with higher costs of living have put strains on many Americans’ purse strings. But estimates from the University of Massachusetts-Boston’s Elder Index detail the toll of the cost of aging on the nation’s elderly residents. More than half of older women who live alone are classified as poor under federal poverty standards or have insufficient incomes to pay for essential expenses, while 45% of men share the same financial situations. The index takes several factors into account, including cost of health care, food, housing and transportation, and can be adjusted based on seniors’ health status. In 2020, data from the index showed more than 2 million older couples were considered financially insecure based on their yearly incomes, according to figures obtained by Kaiser Health News.

Study Says Having Just 4 Drinks A Week Changes Your Brain:

Many people have a cocktail before dinner or a drink to help them wind down at the end of the day. No big deal, right? According to a new observational study, that alcohol consumption might be changing your brain. Anya Topiwala, PhD, of the University of Oxford in England, and her study co-authors linked moderate drinking – about four standard drinks a week in the United States – to higher brain iron levels in multiple basal ganglia regions. The researcher analyzed 21,000 people in the U.K. Biobank cohort and found that more brain iron was “associated with poorer scores on tests of executive function, fluid intelligence, and reaction speed,” the researchers reported in PLoS Medicine. The researchers had three main reasons to do this study, they wrote – Growing evidence of moderate alcohol consumption negatively affecting the brain – Possibility that accumulation of iron in the brain could be the reason; higher brain iron has been described in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative condition – The researchers knew of no studies investigating whether brain iron levels differ by level of alcohol consumption.

N.Y. Mayor Adams Blames Migrants For Shelter Woes:

Last week, New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat, called for federal assistance to help with what he said was a flood of 2,800 asylum seekers who were making it difficult for New York City to fulfill its legal obligation to provide housing to those in need, known as the right to shelter. Adams said the influx was partly caused by migrant families “arriving on buses sent by the Texas and Arizona governments.”

Exercise Can’t Compensate For A Poor Diet, Study Says:

Exercise alone won’t compensate for a poor diet, according to researchers from the University of Sydney. Even if you spend all day and night in the gym or running laps, you’re still better off steering clear of fatty, processed foods. Researchers conclude that high levels of physical activity do not counteract the detrimental effects of a poor diet on mortality risk. Study authors add individuals who both exercised frequently and stuck to a healthy diet displayed the lowest mortality risks.

Examiner – Commentary by Nellie Bowles:

** Former homicide prosecutor Brooke Jenkins has been tapped by San Francisco’s mayor to replace ousted district attorney Chesa Boudin – and I for one could not be more pleased. Jenkins had quit the Boudin office in October 2021, claiming that Boudin had defanged the office and was soft on crime, showing empathy only for the perpetrators and rarely the victims. She joined the recall effort. Days before his recall, Boudin backed out of a debate with Jenkins, likely knowing the bad optics (Boudin, the radical white guy v. Jenkins, the moderate liberal black woman). “I will restore accountability and consequences to our criminal justice system here in San Francisco,” she said in her first speech as DA.

** Self-defense is illegal in New York: A man jumped behind a bodega counter in West Harlem and attacked the guy working the register, Jose Alba. The bodega worker fought back with a knife, killing his attacker. Manhattan’s progressive DA put Alba in Riker’s, arraigned on a second degree murder charge, and set bail at $250,000 (lowered now to $50k after protests). The lesson: Self-defense is illegal. If you’re being attacked, you need to take it.

** Urgency is white supremacy, says Oregon: Public health officials in Oregon announced they would be delaying a meeting because to rush and get everything done for it was a white trait. Here’s what a high ranking Oregon Health Authority official wrote to postpone the upcoming confab: “We recognize that urgency is a white supremacy value that can get in the way of more intentional and thoughtful work, and we want to attend to this dynamic. Therefore, we will reach out at a later date to reschedule.” The KKK would unironically love this explanation.

** Whatever happened to just calling someone a Republican: If you’ve been reading mainstream media, first, I’m sorry. Second, you’ve probably noticed that the words conservative and Republican are falling out of favor for a hot new descriptor: far-right. Much scarier. The NYT brings us this week’s headline: “The Rise of the Far-Right Latina.” The paper names three Latina Republicans who “share right-wing views on immigration, the 2020 election and abortion, among other issues.” Here’s how one Texas congressional candidate’s politics are described by the Times: “Raised conservative, she went to church three times a week and entered politics soon after college, working as the outreach director for Mr. Cruz in McAllen. As a candidate, she has focused on religious liberty, school choice and abortion bans – issues on which she said the region’s Hispanic voters were increasingly like-minded.” You might think, well, this sounds like a standard issue conservative congressional candidate. Not anymore.

** Sadomasochism is the only way to describe the Biden Administration’s willingness to impoverish and destroy America in order to destroy and inflict maximum pain on Russia. —- Tulsi Gabbard

** “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life, and you will call it fate.” —- Carl Jung

** The brazenness and brutality of Russia’s assault on Ukraine earlier this year had a direct and potent effect on the West. NATO, far from crumbling, rallied together, pledged higher military spending, and even added new members, Finland and Sweden. The Zelensky government proved itself extremely gifted at the politics of resistance and mounted a heroic, spirited defense. Vast amounts of modern military aid flowed to Ukraine from the West, most recently HIMARS rockets, helping stymie Russia’s incursion, prevent a sudden victory, and bog the invaders down. Unprecedented sanctions against Russia were crafted by Biden and European countries to devastate the Russian economy. It looked briefly as if Putin had massively miscalculated – and needed a way out. It doesn’t look quite like that now, to put it mildly. —- Andrew Sullivan

** Though the publishing industry would never condone book banning, a subtler form of repression is taking place in the literary world, restricting intellectual and artistic expression from behind closed doors, and often defending these restrictions with thoughtful-sounding rationales. As many top editors and publishing executives admit off the record, a real strain of self-censorship has emerged that many otherwise liberal-minded editors, agents and authors feel compelled to take part in. —- Pamela Paul became an Opinion columnist for the N.Y.

** On July 30, “The Sarbanes Oxley Act” was signed into law by President George W. Bush.

LBN Examiner 07/24/2022


The local Army recruiting station was empty. The normally reliable recruiting grounds at the nearby Walmart were a bust. With the Army still thousands of soldiers short of its recruiting goal, the station commander, Sgt. First Class James Pulliam, dressed head to toe in camouflage, scanned a strip-mall parking lot for targets. He spotted a young woman getting out of a car, and put on his best salesman smile. “Hey, how’d you know I was going to be here today!” the sergeant said with an affable Carolina drawl, as if greeting an old friend. “I’m going to help put you in the Army!”

These are tough times for military recruiting. Almost across the board, the armed forces are experiencing large shortfalls in enlistments this year – a deficit of thousands of entry-level troops that is on pace to be worse than any since just after the Vietnam War. It threatens to throw a wrench into the military’s machinery, leaving critical jobs unfilled and some platoons with too few people to function.

Superhero Fatigue:

Some 29 Marvel Cinematic Universe movies have premiered since 2008 – an average of almost two per year. In those 14 years, critics predicted that audiences would eventually get tired of superhero movies. In The Times, one media analyst warned of “superhero fatigue” in 2011. Asked about it last year, a quarter of U.S. adults said they enjoyed superhero movies but were getting tired of them.

But that sentiment is not reflected at the box office. Thor: Love and Thunder opened last weekend and earned $302 million worldwide, grossing more in its U.S. debut than previous Thor movies. Earlier this year, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness made $954 million worldwide. And 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home finished its run at $1.9 billion.

Next up: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever this November. Its 2018 predecessor made $1.3 billion.

Delayed Retirement:

The average retirement age of American men has risen three years since 1990, to 64.7 years. (The average is the age at which labor force participation falls below 50%.) But a new paper by Alicia H. Munnell, director of the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College, concludes that the five factors that delayed men’s retirement over the past three decades “are no longer having a substantial impact and are unlikely to increase the average retirement age going forward.”

Changes in Social Security such as the increase in the normal retirement age are complete, there is unlikely to be much more of a shift to defined-contribution retirement plans from defined-benefit pensions, gains in educational attainment at older ages have flattened out, as have improvements in health, and the shift away from retiree health benefits is nearly complete, Munnell writes. She concludes, “The major drivers for the gains to date appear to have played themselves out.”

Ohio 10-year-old’s Alleged Rapist Is Guatemalan Illegal Immigrant:

The man charged with the rape of a 10-year-old girl in Ohio is a Guatemalan illegal immigrant, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) source confirmed. The Columbus Dispatch first reported that Gerson Fuentes was arrested after police said he confessed to raping a child on multiple occasions. He has been charged with rape, and the outlet reported that he was possibly in the country illegally. The source told Fox that Fuentes is a Guatemalan national in the country illegally and that ICE has placed a detainer on Fuentes, which is a request he eventually be handed over to the agency for removal proceedings.

Old Friends Appreciate When People Reach Out More Than We Think:

Do phone calls from long-lost friends really excite you? You’re not alone. A new study finds people often underestimate how much their old friends will appreciate receiving a call from them out of the blue. Researchers found that participants who called, texted, or emailed someone in their social circle just to say hello consistently underrated how much their friend would value hearing from them. Meanwhile, the friend receiving the message placed a much higher value on the surprise social interaction. “People are fundamentally social beings and enjoy connecting with others,” explains lead author Peggy Liu, PhD, from the University of Pittsburgh, in a media release. “There is much research showing that maintaining social connections is good for our mental and physical health. However, despite the importance and enjoyment of social connection, our research suggests that people significantly underestimate how much others will appreciate being reached out to.”

Examiner – Commentary by Nellie Bowles:

** Stock markets have had their worst six months since 1970: There are two sure-fire ways to ruin your day: fill up your gas tank or check your Vanguard account. We haven’t had a six-month fall like this for 50 years. And there’s one major cause: Inflation. California has a plan to fix the problem: The inflation that was caused by our government handing out too much cash can be fixed with – you guessed it – the government handing out more cash. California is spending $17 billion on an “inflation relief package,” including sending millions of Californians $1,050 in cash. Meanwhile, Biden claimed … that “inflation is higher in almost every other country.” That’s false. Inflation is significantly lower in, to name a few other rich countries: France, Switzerland, Australia, and Japan. Let’s all hold our breath for the fact checks. I’ve never understood the mentality that allows for Venezuela to become Venezuela. But really it’s very simple: You just keep handing out tons of cash and then say it’s all quite complicated. Here’s the chair of the Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell … “We now understand better how little we understand about inflation.” He said that from a lovely conference in a charming town in Portugal. As the Federal Reserve raises interest rates, we are seeing an unprecedented spike in mortgage rates. And Biden keeps on trucking with the phrases ultra-MAGA and Putin’s Price Hike, though other Dems are realizing the terms are “lame,” according to Politico’s Alex Thompson (a really great White House reporter to follow).

** January 6 committee getting ahead of their skis: In the midst of real grievances about the riot on the Capitol have been a lot of absurd ones, which, at least for me, undermine the hearings. For example: Cassidy Hutchinson, a former aide to Trump’s chief of staff, claimed that Trump wanted to go join the riot, tried to grab a steering wheel from his secret service driver, and then in a struggle tried to choke the guy. For a few hours this was the big news, even though Hutchinson said she’d heard it second-hand. It was a new Pee Tape! The same day: Secret Service agent Bobby Engel – the lead agent and the guy who drives the president’s car – said he’d be happy to go under oath and deny this account outright. And, poof, the whole thing disappears.

** Cops solve vanishingly few murders now: In 1965, police reported solving 83% of murders. In 2020, that number dropped to 51%. Half of the murders in America go unsolved! I had no idea how easy it was to do a murder and not be caught, but it’s always good to know. It’s especially surprising because you would think it’s a lot easier to solve a murder now thanks to cell phones that track our motion and the proliferation of home security cameras.

** Democrats for MAGAs: Democrat donors are funding extremist Republican candidates in primaries against moderate Republicans in an effort to throw the races, according to a really smart new investigation by The National Journal. For example, in Maryland, the Democratic Governors Association is planning to spend over $1 million “to boost Trump-endorsed Republican Daniel Cox over [current governor Larry] Hogan-endorsed candidate Kelly Schulz.”

** No worries about the fentanyl, see you soon! Two men arrested for attempting to transport 150,000 fentanyl pills from Mexico through California and to Washington state were quickly released without bail. They seem like good guys who will do the right thing and make their court date.

** West Hollywood votes to defund their police: If you love chaos, you’re going to love the new West Hollywood. While national Democrats are pretending they’ve never met the defund movement, liberal strongholds in the middle of cities are still gaining traction with ousting their cops. … West Hollywood’s City Council voted to modestly defund their police force, eliminating four deputies. The money will be spent on hiring 30 unarmed “security ambassadors” to walk around the neighborhood and also on making the sidewalk gay decorations more “inclusive.” Plus: $50,000 will go to rescue the city’s Russian Culture festival, which is in a tricky situation given the invasion of Ukraine and so will not actually celebrate Russia this year. True story: I was in West Hollywood recently in the middle of the day, and a nice man ran up to me and said you gotta go, there’s a dude with a machete heading toward us. And there was! So I ran! Right into a cafe for a cappuccino. I’m certainly not in charge of tackling the machete man. Can’t wait for an unarmed community ambassador to handle it.

“Today’s top story: nobody did anything about anything that you wanted them to do something about.”


Fewer Americans are paying attention to national news now than at any time since early 2018. In December 2021, a third of Americans (33%) said they pay “a great deal” of attention to national news. This percentage is the lowest in Gallup/Knight Foundation’s trend and a substantial drop from the 54% of Americans who said they paid a great deal of attention to national news in November of 2020. This finding echoes the recent trend reported by Axios that overall news engagement is down compared to 2020, citing a decline in interest in news about COVID-19 and politics. The recent drop in attention seen in the Gallup/Knight Foundation trend holds across most demographic groups but has been disproportionately pronounced among Democrats younger than 55 years of age. These findings are from a survey of 4,221 U.S. adults fielded Nov. 23-Dec. 3, 2021, who are members of Gallup’s probability-based national panel.
