MM, a video I saw had a number of bystanders on the perp, presumably beating the crap out of him. A cop dragged the last bystander off the perp, and as soon as the bystander was cleared, perp was shot. One of the bystanders is seen walking away briskly with a 10” chefs knife in hand.

Excellent sign for the Brits that they’re no longer simply running away.

Debunked but like a lot of things with Corbyn probably his true intent. After all this is a guy in a senior political position who has opposed every anti-terror legislation in the Commons and is about as anti-Semitic, pro-palastenian you can get. May be the reason I believe it at first.

Black Friday Weekend Will Deepen the Divide Between Retail’s Winners and Losers

"The season has gotten off to a solid start, thanks to many retailers starting deals earlier than ever, judging by preliminary online results: in the first two weeks of November, online sales rose 17.5%, according to Adobe Analytics.

But if retailers are getting aggressive earlier despite a strong consumer spending environment, it's because the retail sector has largely been very promotional even before the holiday season and many big chains, particularly department stores coming off of a string of weak quarters this year, can't afford to lose any more ground."

I can see a retailer not wanting to lose market share or declining sales, but I wonder if the discounting is going to show up in reduced profits.

I wouldn't be surprisde to see more retail store closings next year.

Officials are specifically interested in records of anything they’ve received from the Russian, Chinese, Saudi Arabian and Qatar governments, as well as Huawei, ZTE and other foreign companies that have recently been exposed to more severe federal scrutiny.

"If President Donald Trump is re-elected next November, he'll owe a lot of his victory to the army of activists working tirelessly to put him over the top. No, I'm not talking about the red-hatted MAGA crowd, tireless as they are. I'm talking about the army of leftist activists whose nonstop craziness is moving moderates into the Trump column day by day."

"The president did what he could for Hong Kong and the protesters appreciate it. He signed a law passed overwhelmingly by Congress."

I think Trump gave serious thought to vetoing this bill and then decided it worked in his favor. He can tell Xi that Congress would have just gotten more pissed off and over ridden his veto.

Maybe I'm being cynical but I think the Congress had two motivations for this bill. One, to show support for the people of HK, second, to bind Trump in the trade negotiations by pissing off the Chinese.

The end result is he blew off anyone who voted for the latter reason and he sent a message to the Chinese that he doesn't need the trade deal as much as they do. So get over this insult and do a deal or not.

Europe’s Backlash Against Huawei Has Arrived
Resistance to Chinese technology is growing in Germany—and the ripple effects could reach across the continent.

Worth reading as it's just not about Huawei.

The EU sought to take advantage of the US-China trade dispute to cut a sweet deal of their own with the Chinese.

"Under acute pressure from U.S. President Donald Trump’s trade war, the reasoning went, Xi would be compelled to find common ground with Europe. It was a chance for the EU to wring concessions from China on a range of issues, including long-stalled negotiations on an investment agreement that would open up the Chinese market to European firms."

And that's not quite working out. I think Europe misjudged the dynamic. China might like to cut a deal with Europe to offset the pressure from the US, but China can't give Europe stuff without giving the same or better to the US.

The US is a much larger trade partner with China than Europe is. I think the European view of Trump has also clouded their judgement. They have probably convinced themselves that the bumbling Trump needs a new trade deal more than China.

Anyway, Europe is now on its back-foot, rather than its forefoot, in any trade discussions. It could have worked with the US, but by taking their own trade stance the US deal will come first and they are now a backwater in the trade negotiations.

https://issuesinsights.com/2019/11/29/china-proves-it-obama-really-was-a-sap/

"Worse, even before Obama made his boast it was clear that China’s state-controlled emissions data were unreliable. In late 2015 it came to light that the country had far more coal plants that it had admitted, and as a result had been emitting a billion tons more CO2 that it officially proclaimed. A report in Skeptical Science last year notes that CO2 emissions for China still “aren’t known with any accuracy.”

The whole climate thing relies on statistics and unreliable predictive models. And China seems to fudge all of its statistics.

And its learned how to play the Climate PR game with headlines like, "CO2 emissions per capita GNP continue to decline since 2005." Sounds great until you stop and say wait a minute. You had compound GNP growth of roughly 8% per year during that time period so emissions might have gone up 7.9% each year and your statement is still true.

Cost is over 4 BILLION dollars just to get this turkey off the ground.

One of the revenue streams is the intended legalizing and taxing of recreational marijuana.

That's the downside of the unfree press being obvious propagandists and never issuing even modest questioning of what's really going on. Not everyone is dumb and compliant. I can think of 63 million exceptions.

Captain Hate

Here's an interesting tidbit I'd like the Horde's take on- Mirengoff, over at Powerline has a brief on a poll that shows 53% of Republicans believe Trump is a better President than Lincoln. As a NeverTrumper, he presents this as ipso facto evidence that Trump is essentially a cult leader. My question, is this, inarguably true, or can a reasoned argument be made? Show your work (or not, who the hell am I to tell you what to do?)

NeverTrumpers and leftists have been trying to degrade Trump supporters since day 1 by calling them stupid or cult like. They will use almost any "evidence" to support their smears.

What should scare these people is that a huge number of Republicans feel so strong in their support of Trump that they consider this a valid question. We aren't the cult, they are.

Nvertrumpers must be jerks. From rse's essay:

They read “How to Tell If You’re a Jerk,” an essay in which philosopher Eric Schwitzgebel examines the phenomenon he calls “jerkitude.” He points out that it’s difficult to perceive in oneself, and that when we do, we often excuse it. He proposes a tentative definition:
Jerks are people who culpably fail to appreciate the perspectives of the people around them, treating others as either tools to be manipulated or fools to be dealt with . . . To be a jerk is to be ignorant in a specific way—ignorant of the value of others, ignorant of the merit of their ideas and plans, dismissive of their desires and beliefs, unforgiving of their perceived inferiority.
