heh, steph,

btw the book 2010, was much better, they shoe horned a silly rivalry with the Soviets, we went back in time since the harmonious era of dr floyd? the chinese space program, as well as the origins of the space drive, and there's even a star wars in joke,

"Hammered: Biden falls to 38%, ‘not competent,’ ‘honest’"

‘In the worst showing since becoming president, President Joe Biden’s approval has fallen to its lowest ever, and the public no longer feels his team is competent, honest, or led well.’

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/hammered-biden-falls-to-38-not-competent-honest/

So much for 50 years of swamp creature experience. By the end of his presidency, Nixon’s approval rating had tumbled to 24 percent.

Just 14 points to go, Joe!

“Climate change could have profound consequences for the level, trend growth and variability of economic activity over time,” says Fed governor Lael Brainard

That's Fed-speak for "We want to expand our authority into an area not remotely related to our core responsibility, or to anything we have any expertise on, because reasons."

While both Democrats' (68%) and independents' (31%) trust in media has slid five points over the past year, Republicans' has held steady (at 11%)

I wonder why that is?

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--“Climate change could have profound consequences for the level, trend growth and variability of economic activity over time,” says Fed governor Lael Brainard--

Yes, it would probably improve those things in the future, as the past increase in CO2 and temperature has done.

It's the gawdamned commie government and affiliates' [including dumbass Fed governors] commands and power grabs to deal with this non existent problem that will cause real and devastating problems.

During an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Tuesday, Yellen was pressed on whether the IRS has the “wherewithal” to collect more information about taxpayers and bank accounts including cash flows, something many Republicans have called invasive.

“Well, of course they do,” Yellen said. “Right now, on every bank account that earns more than $10 a year in interest, the banks report the interest earned to the IRS. That’s part of the information base that includes W2’s and reports on dividends in other income that taxpayers earned. So collection of information is routine.”

Has Yellen actually looked at a bank saving account recently ?
I put $10,000 in a saving account and over the last 3 years earned a total of something like $6.
It has never triggered the $10 minimum.
Tracking $600 transfers happens a lot more often.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

That Asia Times article repeats the dubious proposition many of Mel's links do that Xi is on some quest to reform China by throttling corruption and corrupt princes and expresses surprise that sometimes it seems like party interests might eclipse national ones.
The CCP is in its entirety a corrupt, ruthless, vast, organized criminal gang that unlike the relatively benign mafia layers a thick dollop of insane totalitarian political ideology over the violent criminal corruption and greed.
Xi may be smarter and more interested in pure power than some of the rival princes, but he is absolutely morally corrupt as every animal is that rises to the top of such organizations. He has zero interest in transparency or what is best for China and less than zero interest in corruption other than to the extent corruption outside his and his clique's control threatens his power and control.
The good news is the totalitarian maggot elected to fight his way to the top of a tiger that seems more and more determined to consume the disgusting party atop its back.
His campaigns for control and his increasing bellicosity are signs he is struggling and possibly succeeding in consolidating his own power. But they are also signs of overall weakness and increasing instability in China as a whole.
The bad news is it was China's great misfortune to have a young and vital Andropov come along at the juncture when a young and vital Gorbachev might have been sufficiently weak and less ruthless than necessary to prevent China's peacefully throwing off the commies. But Xi, as Andropov did, represents a resurgence of the Old Guard strong arm commies and because he is relatively young and vital stands a very good chance of causing China to fail in a vast, violent cataclysm rather than simply peacefully dissolving at the seams as the USSR did.

"Next they'll tackle racism."

Los Angeles conngresscritter Maxine Waters, who has likely never seen a set of long reigns at work on horseback in her life, labeled Texas Border Officers as racist for controlling their mounts and trying to keep migrants from illegally breaking into America. So she plays the race card, trying to evoke imagery of slavery -along w/Al 'Tawana Brawley' Sharpton. In fact she's the racist- and ODD - 'one dumb darkie' for trying to stoke 'white guilt' and spark more arguments for reparations- for the living to pay for the sins of long dead grandfathers, great and great, great grand fathers. This isn't 1861- nor 1961. It's 2021-- the breadth and diversity in society today is light years beyond the 'white guilt' she and Sharpton were trying to spark. Just look at any videotapes of the SOTU speeches from eras past- the white male faces then are today peppered w/ men and women, gay, straight, brown, black, red, yellow, caramel and all kinds in between. It's Maxine Waters and Al Sharpton's kind of racism that needs slapped down immediately. Texans all but chased Sharpton of of the state, too. And rightly so. These attempts at generating 'white guilt' have got to stop right as they happen.

Neo

The video allegedly features three players from the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream, including Courtney Williams, Crystal Bradford, and Kalani Brown. The three reportedly throw punches at several people in front of the “Tenders and Bites” food truck.

Mutual Combat of Chicago’s: Wild Teendom

My understanding of that “Legal Concept” if you will, is that it only modifies charges, it does not legalize (decriminalize) fighting (or in Chicago, gang duels). Kim Fox (Foxx?) is either ignorant of the law herself or counting on the ignorance of the public. You can toss a coin or go play 21 down on a riverboat, whichever you prefer.

henry

From the cnbc report:

Fed Governor Lael Brainard should figure prominently as President Joe Biden weighs who will chair the central bank and who will specifically supervise banks.
Even without getting the chair’s position, Brainard can be a major influence on banks. If she is not nominated as chair, she’s a good bet to be named the vice chair for supervision.
There are likely three areas where her influence would be most felt: Climate change, central bank digital currency, and getting banks to raise capital during prosperous times.

Ig-

I respectfully disagree with your assertions on China.

What information we DO get from there, is not only heavily spun or at minimum advanced by some faction of princes within the CCP. I only trust a handful of sources, Such as Baldings, Gordon Chang, Kyle Bass, or Doc Chanos. They look a bit differently about the enigma that is China,have money on the table about it, and describe Xi a bit differently than the usual suspects, as well.

It isn't as simple as it once was under Jiang or Deng, IMOO.

What’s wrong, Mr DCSCA? Is Mr Patterico being a real Rod Dreher? If I recall your proclivities correctly, you may enjoy this anecdote:

“One afternoon Colonel Kotikov called me to the door of the hanger. He pointed to a small plane which bore a red star in a white circle. “Who owns this?” he asked. I recognized it as a Texaco plane, and explained that it belonged to an oil firm, The Texas Company.

What right had The Texas Company, he asked, to usurp the red star? He would phone Washington and have it taken away from them immediately. I grabbed his arm and hastily explained that the state of Texas had been known as the “Lone Star State” long before the Russian revolution. I said that if he started a fight about this star, the state of Texas might declare war on Russia all by itself.

“Kotikov wasn’t really sure whether I was joking, but he finally dropped the idea of phoning. I always remember with amusement that this was one of the few times that Harry Hopkins was not called upon for help.”—George Racey Jordan

DCSCA

So Biden's DoD sells the aircraft carriers USS Kitty Hawk and USS John F. Kennedy for scrap literally for one cent a ship-- and abandons $85 billion worth of equiipment to the Taliban.

Remember that as inflation climbs and when he raises your taxes for something that 'will pay for itdself and cost nothing.'

Worst.

Pinandpuller: "You can trust your car to the man who wears the star, the big bright Texaco staarrrrr!".

Patterwokeo, PP. The dude quits the GOP because of Trump's persona rather than policy performance; abhors the rise of 'Trumpism' aka populism, which has been fermenting for decades, backs Biden after being warned by those who actually know Joe's history that he's a perpetual bum, then thinks he can spin the GOP back to the future from the outside the tent. It's 1964 redux. Rockefeller Republicans stayed; Birchers left. The ideologues have been dumped for not performing and are leavib in disgusr; the tail no longer wags the dog; they're on the bottom of the deck now and populism is on the rise because of them. And it infuriates them... so...

Welcome to 1964. ;-)

The guy has been a swamp creatured bum for 40-plus years and is the very reason Trump got elected to begin with. He's no darling to be sure, but shook the place up and was a better show than this trainwreck. In less than 8 months it's like reliving the 1970s again. Awful. Inflation, $5 gas... incompetence.

American Sailors Injured After USS Connecticut Strikes Unknown Object in South China Sea

U.S. Navy sailors were injured after an attack submarine traveling in the South China Sea hit an unknown underwater object on Saturday.

A little history. Downgrading Harry Hopkins from a spy to a dupe. A January 23, 2019, article.

Dianna West, on Paul Kengor's downgrading of Harry Hopkins from a spy to a dupe.

Kengor's comments were made On Jan. 14, [when] Kengor joined Mark Levin on his Fox News show, “Life, Liberty & Levin,” to discuss Russian influence over the life of this nation.

As usual, West is meticulous in her rebuttal. She ends with:

"...Kengor continued: “Herb Romerstein was anything but. And he wanted those of us who follow in his footsteps, or who are concerned about communism still—and about truth above all—to be likewise as careful and thoughtful. Perhaps our best tribute to Herb’s memory would be to do our best to expose what he exposed and remind Americans and the world of what he reminded.”

I agree. So here goes. Romerstein responsibly, carefully, and thoughtfully concluded that Hopkins, aka FDR’s “co-president,” was both a spy and an agent of influence.

Not a dupe."
