Beyond Meat’s sales have fizzled rather than sizzled after fast-food trials of its product had customers asking, “Where’s the beef?” McDonald’s is the latest fast-food giant to complete a trial of a Beyond Meat plant-based product (the McPlant burger). JPMorgan Chase & Co. analyst Ken Goldman released a market research note that indicated the product was being broadly discontinued in the U.S. last Thursday. The two companies signed a three-year global distribution deal in 2021.(Snip)Other trials at Panda Express and Yum!

It failed because it is McNasty. If I want a plant based meal I'll have a nice salad. But be careful, look for a Crispy Double Bug Burger to show up soon on menus.

I don't blame McDonalds or other fast food places. In today's ultra woke environment companies have to loose money to satisfy those political views of people that will never be their customers. Not the most sound business model but a necessary money loser to keep the ever faithful woke media off their backs.

Instead he demanded that control of the bank be handed back to the American people and slammed the way it had freely been printing money through the pandemic. 'We don't need to audit the Fed,' said.

Russian tanks, trucks and artillery are amassing in southern Ukraine as Putin's forces seek to tighten their grip on the region amid a valiant counter-offensive by Kyiv. The Kherson region near Crimea has been under Kremlin control since March 2 after a bloody six-day battle, with Russians driving north from the occupied peninsula. Yet the invaders have faced intense pushback by Ukraine over recent weeks, with Kyiv now confident it will liberate the region by September. According to the British Ministry of Defence (MoD) daily intelligence update this morning: 'Long convoys [...] continue to move away from Ukraine's Donbas region and are headed southwest.'

Sens. Josh Hawley and Ron Johnson said they were told that 324 Afghans reached the U.S. despite appearing on the Defense Department’s Biometrically Enabled Watchlist (BEWL). In addition, 65 Afghans who made it to American soil showed up in the department’s Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS)—up from 50 who were reported to have been flagged by an inspector general in February. The senators also said they were told that political appointees ordered military officers to “cut corners” on fingerprint checks

In the almost six months since being apprehended, Griner has lingered in a less-than-comfortable prison cell. On Thursday, the legal proceedings of the case came to a close when a Russian court delivered a guilty verdict, followed by a harsh sentence of nine years behind bars. None of Thursday’s developments should have come as a surprise to anyone.

The talk in the media is about a “beefed-up” IRS. The IRS budget for FY 2022 totals nearly $14 billion ($11.9 billion in appropriated funds) with a full-time equivalent (FTE) staff ceiling of 79,808 (75,533 from appropriated funding.) Now, the Democrat-controlled Congress, at the behest of the Biden Administration, wants to take that up an additional almost $80 billion, with 1% going to Department of the Treasury offices other than the IRS. That adds up to nearly $93 billion, seven times this year’s budget. SEVEN TIMES.
