Oh my, two cities in WI with Gov-elect Evers' favorite still unionized public schools. Coincidence?

Based on those outcomes, Milwaukee and Racine have been ranked second and third, respectively, as the worst cities for black people to live in by 24/7 Wall St., a Delaware-based financial company.

Jim_nj, for sure the Fed will increase .25 in December, that’s been a given. What’s less clear is how far they’ll go in 2019. They do not have a good track record in either direction. They seem to want to go beyond neutral, which I think is a bit worrisome. In addition to the fact that “neutral” is an elusive number. I’d prefer them to just stop trying to fine tune everything.

Note on the Fed from Chitown lurker:

To revisit something I wrote last night, I’d like to clarify a point that was slid over as “Conventional Wisdom” on my views regarding the inversion of the yield curve. It ONLY signals that The Fed is done. The markets often “overshoot the mark” when it comes to data inputs and reacting to the Fed is no different. Inversion in no way implies “Recession Imminent!” In my opinion. Like the Fed tightening cycle of ‘92-‘95, or for that matter ‘83-‘85, no recession followed. The curve missed inverting in the ‘95 cycle by 3 basis points on the bond, only.

My point being that DOOM! is not around the corner on this cycle, for a myriad of reasons. The first being that we are in no way at full employment because of SSD Fraud, for just one aspect. More slack in the system than people imagine. Tight spots in places, but not in a meaningful inflationary way.

There will be a 0.25 hike in Dec and another one in March. I would expect at least one more 0.25 hike after that, if not two in 2019.

Miss Marple,

It's been a while since I've been there but imo the French get unfairly stereotyped as surrender monkeys when things are a bit more complex. There was a distinct divide between normal people on the street and the ruling class elites. Unfortunately due to their prior North African adventures they have a conflicted attitude toward islam but that's another topic for another day.

The reason that the small truck business in the U.S. is such a go to favorite is that, for many years, Tariffs of 25% have been put on small trucks coming into our country. It is called the “chicken tax.” If we did that with cars coming in, many more cars would be built here.....

[Dear AP] …

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump tested the limits of his presidential authority and political muscle as he threatened to cut off all federal subsidies to General Motors because of its planned massive cutbacks in the U.S.
Really, not one mention of Canadian Premier Trudeau? AP needs to watch how it focuses the media lens. I regularly have to edit Lemire because his point of view invades his articles.

We ran:

WASHINGTON — General Motors, bailed out a decade ago with massive government subsidies, faces reconsideration of federal subsidies after announcing plans for massive cutbacks in the U.S.

Both Canadian Premier Justin Trudeau and President Donald Trump criticized the plan to shutter five plants and slash 14,000 jobs in North America.


and in another case:
In issuing the proclamation, Trump invoked the same national security powers that he used to impose a travel ban on citizens of countries with overwhelmingly Muslim populations.
AP goes for the narrative hot buttons when it would have been more useful to readers to write:
The case pits immigration law against national defense laws that requires the president to defend national borders, as was required this week as agents repelled an attempted invasion by some of the migrants near San Diego, California.
Thank you.

The Infamous Ignatz

That OtherMcCain article on David French skates around a point I was just thinking about early this morning.
Modern conservatism's most well known exponent and his celebrated aphorism are why conservatism has been losing for 100 years and why it will continue to do so.
If a conservative is one standing astride history yelling stop then you have conceded history itself is progressive and since history is unstoppable you have conceded you are a mere pimple on progism's inevitable historic victory.
It's a world view wrong at every level and yet is utterly pervasive in conservatism. It's a defensive backwards looking truly reactionary worldview that cannot win because winning has no meaning given its stance; it either loses fast or more slowly.
The sad fact is modern conservatism arose as a reaction to the triumph of Wilson and FDR's progressive project to end the constitution and federalism. For the republic to survive, that conservatism needs to die. Not change; die, or be put to death.
Nevertrumpers I think, more so than Trump supporters, understand those are the stakes and that is why they are squealing like someone is trying to kill them; someone is, and it's not even trump or his supporters. It's that fraudulent history gravy train they've been fecklessly yelling at and benefitting from for 100 years. The progs have decided they no longer need the cons, especially since a new and actual enemy is trying to get on its feet.
Because the truth is future history is, despite what the left says, is not a determinate inevitability. If it were America would never have existed in the first place.
The one thing the progs fear most is conservatives quit watching history's tail and the prog laser pointer highlighting it and they turn around and start grabbing the reins from the progs that direct which way we're headed.

THAT and that alone is why they hate Trump in a way they never did docile conservatives who were happy to ride in the rumble seat drinking their Slushies.

Rudolph W. Giuliani, one of the president’s personal lawyers, acknowledged the arrangement on Tuesday and defended it as a source of valuable insights into the special counsel’s inquiry and where it was headed. Such information could help shape a legal defense strategy, and it also appeared to give Trump and his legal advisers ammunition in their public relations effort against the special counsel’s office. For example, Giuliani said, Manafort’s lawyer Kevin M. Downing told him that prosecutors hammered away at whether the president knew about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting where Russians promised to deliver damaging information on Hillary Clinton to his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. The president has long denied knowing about the meeting in advance. “He wants Manafort to incriminate Trump,” Giuliani declared of Mueller.

Lord of the Rings Slammed for Perpetuating Racism through Depiction of Orcs

On a recent episode of the Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast, sci-fi author Andrew Duncan argued that the depiction of the orcs in Lord of the Rings is racist and will have “dire consequences . . . for society.”

“It’s hard to miss the repeated notion in Tolkien that some races are just worse than others, or that some peoples are just worse than others,” Duncan said. “And this seems to me — in the long term, if you embrace this too much — it has dire consequences for yourself and for society.”

Kat Timpf at NR goes on...

First of all, I think that it is important to point out that orcs are A) not people and B) not real, so starting some sort of social-justice movement over their treatment is probably the biggest, most idiotic waste of time that I’ve ever seen — and this is coming from an adult woman who spends time playing a game called “Pet Shop” on her phone.

In Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal, only six GOP appointees of twenty-nine seats
July 11, 2018 By James V. Lacy

As the Trump Administration focuses on its important Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, we are also reminded that of the twenty-nine members of the important U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, based in San Francisco, only six of the members were appointed by Republican presidents, resulting in the most liberal and highly overturned circuit court in the nation. Sixteen of the current members were appointed by Democrats, and the vacancy rate is the highest in the nation, with seven positions not yet filled by President Trump.

A final set of data from Evers’ DPI compares the taxpayer costs of an MPS student ($14,900) with those in the Milwaukee choice program ($7,754 for grades K-8 and $8,400 for high school). In other words, the under-financed choice program nevertheless produces results superior to those of traditional public schools.

Most Californians Want Their Elected Officials to Work With Trump – UC Berkeley Poll
March 28, 2017 By James V. Lacy

California’s elected Democratic leaders have vowed to “resist” the Trump Administration. Attorney General Xavier Becerra says he will invoke legal action to cut any funding to California, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee says he will “stand up to Trump,” Governor Jerry Brown has said California is “not turning back,” Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters wants to impeach the new President, and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has embraced the notion of “resistance” to the Trump Administration at every turn.

But these Democratic leaders appear out of tune with sentiments of Californians overall according to a new UC Berkeley poll which reveals that, although Donald Trump’s popularity in the state is at 39%, a clear majority of 53% of Californians would like their elected officials to work with Trump to try to fix the nation’s problems. The poll also revealed that while Californian’s oppose the Trump Administration on many issues, that when it comes to infrastructure reform and improving the economy, they favor Trump’s approach.
