--The question is whether this is a move by Durham or one against him. Conservative twitter commenters Hans Mahncke and shipwreckedcrew think it's more likely the latter.--

If by a move against Durham they mean a defensive move to manage Deripaska and his evidence and to control his behavior and testimony to Durham, I can go along with that.
But Durham doesn't strike me as the kind of guy the DoJ is going to gain any leverage over by saying "if you don't back off we're going to hurt people on the other side of the aisle."
Especially since Deripaska seems to be on their side of the aisle. They're putting him on ice to protect themselves not using him as a cudgel.
If I were him I would hope they don't put me in Epstein's cell, especially if his guard's name tag says H. Clinton.

The incredible (and unique) firepower of the US Army’s Night Stalkers, Stavros Atlamazoglou | October 16, 2021.

Includes a six-minute video - "...In the following leaked video, we can see the impressive precision strike capabilities of the Night Stalkers. Taken in Iraq in the mid-2000s, the video shows U.S. special operations forces on the ground calling in close air support on an insurgent position.

The commandos use infrared lasers, which are only visible through night vision goggles, to “paint” the target and guide the Night Stalkers. Then, MH-60 DAPs and AH-6 Little Birds take turns on the target with impressive results. The night literally turns into day..."

Zillow slams the brakes on home buying as it struggles to manage its backlog of inventory

"The "iBuyer" model used by Zillow and other real estate companies entails purchasing homes directly from sellers, and then re-listing the properties after doing minor work. But thanks to the current shortage on labor and materials, Zillow can't close, renovate and resell the homes fast enough."

Could a Man of Action, a true Commander in Chief, look at the problems on Pac Coast in regards to shipping and think to himself:

"So Cali's CARB rules are preventing, you know, the things getting unloaded?"

"So that's interfering with that interstate commerce... you know the thing."

"Soooo...I'll issue one of those Executive Order thingy's so anyone go there and pick up a load and deliver it."

"Someone send a telegram to Perkins Coie now."

Davod, there are so many containers sitting waiting, even if you got my Hoosier buddy Greg (an owner operator) there, they wouldn't be able to find his load.

As an owner/operator he's not even sure he can work there now.

He's been making that run for 35 years.

It was corn to the south, livestock to the west coast, fresh produce back to the midwest.

Rinse and repeat.

No one is safe from Chappelle's jokes—but also, everyone is safe from Chappelle's jokes.

I particularly liked this quote:
"These transgenders…want me dead," Chappelle says later on. "Every time I come out on stage, I be scared. I be lookin' around the crowd, searching for knuckles and Adam's apples to see where the threats might be coming from."

"A nigga came up to me on the street the other day, he said, 'Careful Dave, they after you,'" Chappelle says, pausing, his eyes wide. "I said 'What? One they, or many theys?'"

Published yesterday, there are over 500 comments. I read about 1/3, and it looks to me like people are not buying the excuses. Since Yahoo isn't known for in-depth economic news, it encourages me that the readership seems to be well aware of what's going on.

Anti-Biden rap song Let’s Go Brandon by 'MAGA rapper' Loza Alexander shoots to top of iTunes hip-hop charts

Loza Alexander's 'Let's Go Brandon!' rap hit #1 on iTunes' hip-hop charts

The song heavily features 'F**k Joe Biden' constantly in the background

It references the meme, where a reporter allegedly misheard 'F**k Joe Biden as 'Let's Go Brandon!' during a NASCAR race earlier this month

Many criticized the reporter for censoring the crowd, and 'Let's Go Brandon' has become shorthand for criticizing President Joe Biden

Wait, it's not per transaction but per year?
I question that, although I suppose I shouldn't considering 1099s have been triggered for a long time by $600 per year.

matt - deplore me if you must

Why not, as a part of Biden's financial and tax reform, strip the big non-profits of part of their tax exempt status? Any non-profit that uses money to influence elections should be taxed the same amount as their in kind or other donations.

This could be extended to the big influencers as well. Google, MSFT, FB and all the others. Give it teeth.

Much better than going after Mom & Pop.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--Time to move to strip these outfits of their tax exemp status--

Seems to me we're well past that point. When a bunch of oligarchs set up organizations to strip us of our rights and the franchise it's time to strip them of their "outfits", apply the tar and feathers and run them out of civilization.
If we don't they'll do it, and worse, to us.

Iggy. how would you interpret this?

"...Treasury released in a 'fact sheet.' "Under the current proposal, financial accounts with money flowing in and out that totals less than $10,000 annually are not subject to any additional reporting. "

Like I said. Food Stamps and welfare exceeds that level.

Old Lurker

And of course, $5,000 in, which is then spent is equal to $10,000 In and Out.

Fox News’ Cavuto tests positive for COVID-19, urges vaccines

B-b-b-but President Plagiarist mockingly said in his speeches over and over that EVERYBODY at Fox had to be vaccinated!

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

OL,
I don't know the context of that quote so I don't know what "the current proposal" refers to but it certainly sounds like they mean any account generating at first $600 and now apparently $10,000 rather than those totals in a single transaction.
Either way is tyrannical. When this all shakes out in whatever form it does and assuming we avoid a neo Dark Ages™ the next tax regime and Constitution must codify as unmodifiable that there is to be no taxation of any wages, capital gains or any other income, including business and corporate income, that puts the state's foot in the door of sticking their goddamned nose in any of our personal business prior to us committing a crime. That by itself eliminates the tax exempt kubuki because there would be no income taxes to be exempt from.
And no tax should ever be hidden via withholding or burying it in a VAT. My personal preference is a national sales tax with a nationwide stipulation that every sales receipt contains a huge fluorescent line with exclamation point stating "This is how much the state stole from your purchase to fund its operations!"

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

When I think back to my in home audit from 20 years ago my blood still boils.
I had to, at the threat of jail, let some ignorant broad into my house to sit at my desk and comb through my personal business for hours, with me having to justify what I had done to prove I wasn't guilty. And even though I had jumped through all their stupid hoops, I still had to endure months of stress right up to the point of having my date in tax court scheduled, because some ignorant, anonymous bureaucrat somewhere didn't know what a conservation easement was.
Had I not read the fine print and seen there was an appeal process prior to my court date and found the one reasonable IRS guy in the region who tossed the whole thing for me I would have ended up in tax court being tried as guilty before innocent.
We should have had a revolution over this level of arbitrary and incredibly intrusive state power already.

Old Lurker

Ig "sounds like they mean any account generating at first $600 and now apparently $10,000 rather than those totals in a single transaction."

Apples and oranges right there, Ig.

The $600 yo mention triggers a Payor's duty to file a 1099 on the Payee with the IRS so the IRS can then look for that amount on the Payee's 1040, regardless of where the Payee put the money.

This new proposal in effect requires all Payees everywhere to CC the IRS with their complete bank statements.

DCSCA

Iggy-

You can bet $600 or $10,000 that members of Congress will exempt themselves from this "law." if it ever survives.

A government that abandons $85 billion worth of military weaponry and equipment then sells, for scrap, two multi-billion dollar aircraft carriers which could have been refitted as hurricane/disaster ships stationed on the East and West coasts- literally for a penny each, and abandons millions of dollars worth of steel meant to build a wall across the southern border is in no position to argue any merrit at ferreting its way through the bank accounts of the citizenry.

A Royalist who thinks nothing of showing off to TeeVee cameras a $4000 refrigerator/freezer full of $15-a-pint of ice cream has no concept of what the value of $600- or $10000- is to average Americans.

And old broad wonders why Republicans stormed the castle in January and Democrats stormed the Throne Room in October.

Hard working people have had it with this elitist incompetence.

"I trust his [Biden's] judgement"- Nancy Pelosi 8/25/21

Sorry, Ig, I misinterpreted what you meant by "at first $600". Your statement is correct. There are apples, and there are oranges, but you did not conflate them.
