Flotsam and Jetsam - Bank Worries Widen, Bidens Got Chinese Change

At NRO, Yellen Admits CCP-Linked Silicon Valley Depositors Will Be Bailed Out by U.S. Banks, but wait, according to Beege Wellborn at Hat Hair, HOLD ON THERE: Yellen says not ALL deposits at ALL banks are "insured", only the 97% or so of uninsured deposits from Democrat friendly silicon valley. 

Republican Sen. James Lankford of Oklahoma pressed Yellen about how widely the uninsured deposit backstops will apply across the banking industry.

“Will the deposits in every community bank in Oklahoma, regardless of their size, be fully insured now?” asked Lankford. “Will they get the same treatment that SVB just got, or Signature Bank just got?”
Yellen acknowledged they would not. . . .
… Uninsured deposits, she said, would only be covered in the event that a “failure to protect uninsured depositors would create systemic risk and significant economic and financial consequences.”

Sundance also hosts House Oversight Receives Bank Records Showing Biden Family Paid by Chinese Energy Company

WASHINGTON—Today, the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability issued a memorandum revealing new evidence resulting from the investigation into the Biden family’s influence peddling and business schemes. Subpoenaed financial records show that from 2015 to 2017, Biden family members – Hunter Biden, James Biden, Hallie Biden, and an unknown “Biden” – and their companies collectively received $1.3 million in payments from accounts related to Rob Walker, a Biden family associate.

Notably, on March 1, 2017, less than two months after Vice President Joe Biden left public office, State Energy HK Limited, a Chinese company, wired $3 million to Rob Walker’s company. The next day, the company wired $1,065,000 to a company associated with James Gilliar, another Biden family associate. Afterwards, the Biden family received approximately $1,065,000 in payments over a three-month period in different bank accounts. From the bank records, it appears that the Biden family received approximately one-third of the money obtained from the China wire.

Just help yourself and quit.

Also from Kruiser, Democrats Continue Construction on Their High-Rise House of Lies. "Post-Trump, Democratic politics has been built on a foundation of three big lies: 1: Russia collusion/interference got Trump elected. 2: There was an insurrection in Washington on Jan. 6, 2021. 3: Joe Biden is a mentally competent, politically moderate voice of reason. The other lies — there is no mail ballot fraud, for example — get piled on top of the Big Three." Brandon Morse at Red State documents how Rand Paul Storms out of Committee Meeting After Dems Play Dirty With Firefighters' Jobs  "According to Fox News, Paul got into it with Michigan Democrat, Senator Gary Peters after Peters blocked every Republican amendment to the Fire Grants and Safety Act. Paul was trying to introduce amendments to the bill that would make fire departments ineligible for federal grants if they fired anyone based on their COVID-19 vaccination status. Paul also introduced a bill to prevent funding the NIH for “gain of function” research on the coronavirus in Wuhan, China, and other labs."

Ace, Prepare for Another Shock: The True Conservatives of NeverTrump Are Making Hard-Left Arguments In Favor of Abortion and Transitioning Children "Amanda Carpenter, a super-True-Conservative at The Bulkwark, wants to know what kind of intrusive laws conservatives are willing to impose on women to restrict their freedom to have abortions. And also, what kind of thuggery conservatives are willing to embrace to stop... unnecessary and harmful experimental surgeries on children."

John Sexton at Hat Hair, Freddie deBoer: Quit pretending you don't know what woke means (plus zebras). Stick with it, it's worth it.
“Woke” or “wokeness” refers to a school of social and cultural liberalism that has become the dominant discourse in left-of-center spaces in American intellectual life. It reflects trends and fashions that emerged over time from left activist and academic spaces and became mainstream, indeed hegemonic, among American progressives in the 2010s. “Wokeness” centers “the personal is political” at the heart of all politics and treats political action as inherently a matter of personal moral hygiene – woke isn’t something you do, it’s something you are. Correspondingly all of politics can be decomposed down to the right thoughts and right utterances of enlightened people. Persuasion and compromise are contrary to this vision of moral hygiene and thus are deprecated. Correct thoughts are enforced through a system of mutual surveillance, one which takes advantage of the affordances of internet technology to surveil and then punish. Since politics is not a matter of arriving at the least-bad alternative through an adversarial process but rather a matter of understanding and inhabiting an elevated moral station, there are no crises of conscience or necessary evils.
