DC types think the President should just follow them. Actual elections are irrelevant to these people. It’s outrageous.

Tom Friedman's column today was all about how the DC types should run everything, because they are "noncorrupt and apolitical" and the "true defenders" of this country.

henry

James D, I'd allow Friedman's idea if the entire bureaucracy were changed into eunuchs, and do the same to get "trusted" journolists.
We could retire the federal debt by selling opportunities to use the shears.

Friedman can go first.

James D.

Did we need more reason to loathe Kamala Harris, and to fear what she would do were she to become President?

Probably not, but here it is anyway:

After catching up, and reflecting on last night's posts, I am revising my target list:

1) "journalists"
2) politicians
3) bureaucrats
4) ambulance chasers

Did I overlook a vermin subspecies?

That has "Ben" written all over it.

henry

narciso, it seems that having different opinions aired before deciding a policy is not who DC is. No wonder the policies that come from the DC insiders are so crappy -- they never look outside their little box (filled with instruction on how to obtain moar graft).

Narciso

Mcintyre s off the opinion, we bet wrongly in many of our alliances in that part of the world, considering some of these forces were erdigans proxies i grant him that point

Narciso

Well theres that, but if youre carryying qatari or iranian water youre in clover.

Narciso

And qatar is pumping so much cash into south carolina that qatar might as well be a,sister city to charleston.

So fiona was last in moscow 10 years ago, when mcfaul pretended there was a difference between medvedev and putin.
She had left before the call, sp her information was even more remote

Its eerie how house of cards this scenario all is, although they have no ome as sane as frank underwood, theres is a tulsi like character, there was an irish catholic version of weiner, the chinese through certain princelings provide pelf in returm for concessions on rare earths

Melinda

That's an interesting piece from Gertz, but I think we're seeing only part of it, because it makes no mention whatsoever of Huawei and that aspect of surveillance.

Narciso

In the series shes an ambitious ex soldier played by molly parker, shes an aide who turns on underwood, theres a haughty lefty senator up for secretary of state (who does that sound like)

Narciso

Well its the motive, why they are pushimg in out, how hacks at bezos carlos slims are tools of princelings rhetotical

Narciso

So im fair in assuming if all the press is screaming about something, theyve got it either partially or completely wrong?

Buckeye

The scheme was part of China’s Thousand Talents Program to recruit Chinese-Americans and others to support research in China. It has been linked to the China Ministry of Science and Technology.

From narciso's 9:35

Only issue I would take with the piece is that it leads you to believe that the Chinese espionage activity is fairly recent.

It probably spans 30 years, way before Xi.

I went through the Chinese business cards I have accumulated, and 2 are from guys who were from the Ministry of Science and Technology.

Undoubtedly from some snooping activity at a trade show or other industry event.

Narciso

Narciso

Theres a line in kingsman when hes tryimg to find out what org harry is with (the fellow that they superimposed trumps face) and he refers chinese intelligence, they dont even have a name for it.

henry

Buckeye, exactly. We had a Chinese Minister for Tech Transfer as a "guest professor" when we were doing the DoD tech transfer research (Clinton's first year). She wrote their technology acquisition plan. (and gave me a copy of the published article on it). I detect no deviation... except the local takeup hasn't lead to local innovation. (a plan failure).

>I hope you guys are right and Trump is in good position. But Obama had tailwinds Trump will not. He had an adoring press that would do anything to get him across the finish line. Trump will face headwinds from the media, the net, Hollyweird, academia, and The Swamp that we might even now not fully realize.

Trump will have the best economy in at least 50 years. Recored low unemployment. Trade deals with a number of countries including the USMCA and China. No new wars. A failed coup behind him. Evidence of the real collusion in 2016 and beyond and an incredibly angry and determined base who will turnout in record numbers.

Brad Parscale has been tweeting out for months that one of the big reasons for the rallies is not just to pump up the base but to identify voters in every state he goes to by ticket requests. The numbers coming out of Minnesota were eye popping including a third of the attendees being registered Democrats.

During the 2016 cycle Trump had one part time person on the ground in Minnesota and they left to go to Colorado before the election which Trump lost in MN by less than 2%. He already has 20 people on the ground organizing more than a year before the election. And this is Minnesota.

Anyone who thinks Trump doesn't plan down to the most minute detail hasn't been watching him. Polls are a useless joke. Watch what's happening on the ground.

Slight correction to JackStraw's comment. It's one third of the people who requested tickets, not one third of the attendees. They don't know the demographics of the attendees, because no one scans the tickets at the rally. The data from the requests is mined for party affiliation and that's where Parscale gets his info.

I think Trump said there were in total about 100K requests for tickets for the MN rally. Now some have to be from stupid Democrats who think that requesting a ticket with no intention of attending is going to result in an empty seat at the rally (it won't). But not 33K's worth.
