"Steel prices surging" has a bit to do with supply chain constraints (who knew that stimulus checks discouraged blue collar workers from actually, you know, work) and a LOT to do with tariffs blowing up the most heavily subsidized steel companies, globally, by forcing them to refinance through bankruptcy as all their schemes with cheaply priced steel blew up. VALE, in particular.

Melinda,

I am so glad you can offer explanations! All I can do is report, and you really cannot trust media analysis.

Buried halfway into this article is the absurdity that HRW wrote *a new definition* of apartheid so that it could apply to Israel, because actual apartheid, like in South Africa, doesn't apply. Tells you exactly how seriously you should take this report.

#Iran-backed Houthi militias have in the past used such boats against Saudi interests. This incident being so far up north of #Yemen is quite interesting.

MM2’s 7:13 is a nice complement to my recent essay on the Red County migration.

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2021/04/the_end_of_an_era_or_the_return_to_an_earlier_one.html

What’s funny is that we spent a lot of time in the little town of Gothenburg NE 30 yrs ago. It looks just like the stock photo in the 7:13 Breitbart piece. Typical farm town. I always had a sense that a place like that could be a permanent home, if only there was some means of readily communicating with the outside world. You know, like some magic wire that gave you access to the whole world. (Keep in mind that 1990 offered A-side/B-side bag phones that were only slightly better than string between two cans.)

Gothenburg had all the small town basics. You choice of three different diners, each with their own specialty homemade pies. An A&W and eventually a Mickey D. And only a 30 minute drive to North Platte, if you needed stuff that a BIG town offered.

Hey Stephanie --

Thanks. I'm probably hopeless (from your point of view). I just found what you quoted a very cogent argument that echoes Abe Lincoln. Of course, Lincoln wasn't dealing with Progressives back then.

Project for self -- what were the circumstances of the creation of FDR's Four Freedoms speech. It was a big deal back in WW II, but mostly forgotten now.

One of the guys loved the rum raisin pie so much he convinced them to give him the recipe after promising to never reveal it to any locals. I think that was at the Randazzle Cafe.

“The fact is that even if every single American citizen biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes – if we each planted a dozen trees – if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions – guess what? That still wouldn’t be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world. If all the industrialized nations went down to zero emissions – remember what I just said – all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions, it wouldn’t be enough – not when more than 65 percent of the world’s carbon pollution comes from the developing world.”

anonamom,

First 15 minutes of Bannon is an interview with John Barkey, the co-founder of the audit company. He explains in detail how they are doing this, and why he became concerned, as a Bernie Sanders supporter, that election integrity wasvital. He stumbled across computer voting irregularities over 15 years ago and has been working on this ever since.

Seemed very straightforward and also pointed out how major media wasn't covering what they were doing.

MAJOR CONFLICT OF INTEREST:
Ad Hoc Elections Committee in Green Bay had a member (Susan Smith) who worked for and Represented a candidate on the ballot (Kamala Harris) #GreenBayElectionScandal

The Green Bay City Attorney mentions the Ad Hoc Elections Committee 13 times in her report trying to absolve the city of any wrongdoing, but in the process implicates a major conflict of interest.

Susan Smith was one of only 9 members on the Ad Hoc Election Committee which allegedly directed the course of pursuing the CTCL Grant and much of the absentee ballot strategy to boost Dem turnout in Green Bay. #wiright

Gus, there is a difference between a "newspaper" and a "publication".

You might wish to stop referring to the NYT as a newspaper and what it contains as news.

I have all these mini-notebooks left over from my NR cruises. A lot of us took notes from the speakers. I took one out today to use for my calendar -from the 2014 post election cruise. Some interesting tidbits from the speakers:

‘Is the president (Obama) incompetent or evil?

It’s all about siding with the strongest. Obama has made us weak so we have no allies

All problems are caused by American strength - Obama’s goal is to put us in decline. It’s a “destroy the warrior ethos”. Change the ethos. Military is bad.

Reality is not reality. If the left can’t prove that they have to shut you up.”

That last quote was Andrew Klavin.

Funny how things work out.
