South America. A few days ago the Argentinians rejected the austerity program of the current government in favor of electing a left-wing Peronista. Their economy is still (always?) in trouble.

Chile has seen protests continue over income inequality and other issues even though it has one of the strongest economies in South America.

Bolivia may be headed for a civil war over the contested Oct. 20 elections. The people, or many of them, are tired of the Marxist Morales and distrust the election results. First reports suggested that a run-off was needed and then Morales magically(?) gained the lead.

In Peru they can't decide who is in charge after congress was dismissed.

Forbes comments on some of this:

Typhuspad just ate my post on South America.

Argentina just elected a left-wing Peronist and rejected the austerity program meant to heal Argentina's economy. Why is that such a resource rich country is always in trouble?

Bolivia is near on the verge of a civil war after the recent election. Marxist Morales was headed for a run-off election until the vote suddenly shifted to his favor.

Chile is still consumed by protestors even though it has a strong economy. Something about income inequality.

In Peru they are still trying to figure out who is charge after the congress was dismissed.

Reminds me of the old days.

The Deep State won the baseball game last night, so they're tied with the Astros 3-3. Does anyone have an idea about which team might win the 7th game of tbe series?

I'm an Angels/Dodgers fan, so I didn't have any particular interest in the World Series this year until the swamp booed my President and the First Lady. Now I'm rooting for the Astros!

Masked gunmen attack protesters in Iraq holy city; 18 killed

Karbala. Overwhelmingly Shia, one of the holiest sites in Shia history.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Iran-controlled Shia militias are doing the shooting hoping to blame it on the government forces.

I don't have enough information on what is going on in Iraq to figure out what's what, but I am seeing reports of Shia on Shia violence. People vs. the militias.

I don't know how to explain my feelings here, but this is not just a Baghdad protest. It's also happening throughout Shia dominant areas.

Further, I'm reading reports that the Iraqi government wants US forces who left Syria for the safety of Iraqi Kurd areas are being told to leave the country.

Maybe that's posturing.

I'm not the only one looking at South America.

https://thefederalist.com/2019/10/29/the-nations-in-americas-backyard-are-falling-apart-while-the-u-s-remains-stuck-in-the-middle-east/

Somewhat validating to see that someone else is watching South America. Columbia and Brazil seem to be OK, but some of the other countries got caught in the Venezuelan orbit to their detriment.

I don't understand Argentina. It could be the richest nation in SA, but it keeps flipping back to Peron-style governments.

It keeps falling into a debt trap that stifles the local economy.

Their whole political system seems to be geared toward failure.

If the Peronists think they can spend their way out of this they will learn that no one wants to loan them more money.

Cheaper planes for ground-support is a great idea, provided that the opposing force only has small-arms.

Were I a pilot I'd rather sit in a titanium bathtub in a plane that can take multiple hits and still survive.

From what I have read A-10 pilots have safely landed planes that can't be salvaged.

This is something I happened upon this morning. It was a hearing before the House Financial Services Committee by the SEC.

Thr Chairwoman is Maxine Waters. One of the members is Rep. Tlaib. The democrat members doing the questioning wanted to know things about how stockholders could file complaints with company boards to keep them from spending money in places like South Aftica, how to get more diversity on boards, whether the Trump family was making money in Opportunity Zones, how to let investors know the economic impact climate change would have on their business, etc. etc.

It occurs to me if these morons are in power, the entire country will end up like California's power company.

I thought of this after reading the articile on California you posted at 5:08.

DaysOfSunshine has MANY good posts. Impressive for a one-guy operation. Here's a snip from a post a couple weeks ago.

https://daysofsunshine.blog/2019/10/17/trump-seems-to-have-a-lock-on-re-election-for-many-reasons/
The House of Representatives has, in fact, already held three votes on impeachment. I will forgive you for not knowing what they are, but here’s a list for the uninitiated:

Impeachment vote #1: 58 Democrats voted in favor of impeaching Trump for the “high crime and misdemeanor” of insulting the NFL anthem protests (12/6/2017);
Impeachment vote #2: 66 Democrats voted in favor of impeaching Trump for the “high crime and misdemeanor” of employing the phrase “shithole countries” (1/19/2018);
Impeachment vote #3: 95 Democrats voted to impeach Trump for the “high crime and misdemeanor” of insulting The Squad (7/20/2019).

“The salient point being that the judge is the one who shepherds that determination, not the Atty General.”

I don’t think so, JMH. I think the prosecutor investigates the new evidence, figures out whether it exonerates the person who had been convicted, and then goes to the judge, who basically rubber-stamps it. So in this situation it would be Barr going to Judge Sullivan and saying “We’ve found new evidence that exonerates General Flynn, and request that the guilty verdict be vacated.”

I’m sure jim_nj is right about that climate change journal being bogus, but lots of reputable journals have fees, both to submit and to publish, though I’m not sure about online-only journals.

The odd case of a missing Bigfoot statue in western North Carolina took an even stranger turn Wednesday, when it was found carefully placed in a remote wooded area of Avery County.

But who took it — and why — remains a mystery.

Barbara, it’s hard not to like the Nats’ chances with Scherzer going against Greinke, if Max is healthy, and there doesn’t appear to be much of a home field advantage in this series. :)

So in this situation it would be Barr going to Judge Sullivan and saying “We’ve found new evidence that exonerates General Flynn, and request that the guilty verdict be vacated.”

I'm trying to recall if in the Duke LAX case if it was on appeal that the State Attorney General dropped the case and made the highly unusual step of declaring the accused innocent of all charges, or if it was in the initial trial. My own opinion is that Barr wants to avoid giving the unfree presstitutes any reason to clutch their pearls about OMG THE FIX IS IN. In this case it's a good thing I'm not in his spot because not only would I drop it but I'd look calmly into the camera and say "and to all you media whores: Fuck you guys in particular".

MM,

Seems to me Schiff is stopping the answers do questions that implicate him.

MissMarple2

Between those two tweets I posted above, the President re-tweeted 3 of his own tweets:

1. 95% Approval Rating in the Republican Party, a record. Thank you!

2. Just confirmed that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s number one replacement has been terminated by American troops. Most likely would have taken the top spot - Now he is also Dead!

3. Nervous Nancy Pelosi is doing everything possible to destroy the Republican Party. Our Polls show that it is going to be just the opposite. The Do Nothing Dems will lose many seats in 2020. They have a Death Wish, led by a corrupt politician, Adam Schiff!

I am wondering if those tweets have a particular significance. I will be watching what happens today.

MissMarple2

The President seems to have no problem repeatedly calling Schiff corrupt. That he would stop questions implicating him would not surprise me.

And why did Pelosi let him run this charade?

Re. that “old iPhone” story, the 5 was discontinued in late 2013, so not *that* dated.

Hard info seems hard coming by, but I’d be surprised if they didn’t connect to the ‘net. I am pretty sure Apple uses device time-of-day as part of their security regime, and Apple does specifically warn about Apple services being unavailable.

I develop products that use GPS and have been through a couple of these GPS rollovers. It’s a pain-in-the-a** problem, not because it’s complex to fix but that it’s typically very complex to deploy.

As much as I’ve come to dislike him, always respected that appearance - mostly because he actually looked like a proper male who knew how to throw a ball. Plus the pitch was dead center into the catchers glove.

Contrast with Gaylord who was every stereotype of a preening sissy.

I WAS rooting for the Nats, until their jackass fans booed my President, and all the beltway media crowed about it. So now I say, eff them.

The problem is, I despise the Astros. First of all for knocking my Yankees out of the playoffs. And second for their hyper-analytic, tech-bro approach that everyone else in the game now has to emulate, which absolutely sucks from where I sit.

Early GPS satellites supplied date and time relative to a 10-bit week number. So that’s what older-design receiver chips were designed to use. That rolls over every 19.7 years (an “epoch” in GPS-speak).

Newer-block sats include a16-bit week number, but the old design receivers are still out there.

Another Bob

The dumb software fix is to add a different constant to the receiver time, which “fixes” it for another 19.7 years. Smarter fixes involve counting epochs in some way.

Right now in sporting good stores all across the state of Alabama you can buy replica football jerseys with numbers on them. A popular number for Bama right now is #13 which is Tua's number. For Auburn you can always find a 34 jersey for sale which was Bo Jackson's number. There won't be any names on the back of the jerseys because that hasn't been allowed due to NCAA rules but will be now. Now if Bama fans want a #13 jersey with "Tu. Tagovailoa" on the back of the jersey that will soon be available as soon as Tua signs an endorsement contract with Nike.
