1. Of all the people that the J6 Committee has subpoenaed, Steve Bannon is the MOST honey badger like person. He may be the most honey badger like person ever! Just look at him! That man does not give AF what the media, Dems, or anyone else says or thinks about him. He will not be intimidated by ANYONE, he will pull no punches, he will give no quarter to the enemies of MAGA and America. The J6 Committee has foolishly chosen a fight with one of the most informed, influential, and formidable MAGA Patriots. He is also one the BEST people to explain the events of J6. He knows every minute of that day, that week, and so does his massive audience.

Vaccine Holdouts at Key Bases Pose Military Dilemma

"The high number of workers – civilian and military – refusing to get the vaccine at China Lake and other key research and development bases could force the Navy to make some difficult decisions in the coming months. All of these civilian workers must hold a security clearance just to enter the base, and many hold advanced engineering degrees and extensive technical training that takes years to acquire."

The District Numbers That Sent Chills Down Pelosi’s Spine Last Week

In NJ and VA "Democrats currently hold 17 of the 23 total U.S. House of Representatives seats from both states, and in 2018/2020, Democratic candidates either won or came close to winning three more. Yet on Tuesday, November 2nd, Glenn Youngkin and Jack Ciattarelli carried 12 of them, six in each state, and came close in two more. That means six Democratic Congressmen sit in seats in which the voters chose Republicans last week, several by lopsided margins."

Radical Rent Control Measure Blows Up In St. Paul In Less Than A Week

Unlike almost every rent control law in the country, the ordinance passed by St. Paul voters includes no exemption for new construction...

"In last Tuesday's municipal election, 52 percent of voters approved Question 1, an ordinance that puts a hard annual 3 percent cap on rent increases. It makes no allowances for inflation or exemptions for vacant apartments and new construction that are typical in other rent control policies.

The new ordinance doesn't go into effect until May 2022. Nevertheless, several real estate companies with large projects in the works have already announced that they're pulling their permit applications."

Clock Just Hours From Midnight For Overwhelmed California Ports

"The flood of import containers into Southern California continues unabated — an all-time high 81 container ships were stuck offshore of Los Angeles and Long Beach on Tuesday. Waiting time at anchorage for Los Angeles is surging and is now more than double wait times in early September.

The ports are scheduled to start charging a highly controversial excess dwell-time fee on Monday, a plan that some members of the National Shippers Advisory Council called “catastrophic,” “crazy” and “out of left field.”

With just hours left until the fee is set to begin, there are still over 51,000 containers on the terminals that are past the plan’s dwell-time limits. If the fee plan is not delayed or modified, the aggregate cost to carriers — which would largely be passed on to importers — would start next Monday in the millions per day and escalate to tens of millions per day later in the week."

They're playing a game of chicken. If the ports collect those fees they will all be passed on to the consumer.

jim nj

I'm used to rent-control laws living in NJ. I understand why it exists - there are more voting renters than voting rental property owners.

Having said that, you can still create rent-control laws that are reasonably fair to both sides. St. Paul flunks that test.

You need vacancy de-control. When a tenant leaves, without being forced out, the rent should be allowed to rise to the current market level.

You need a CPI clause. If property taxes and costs are rising the landlord needs the relief of that cost. Rational tenants understand that.

If the landlord substantially improves the building he should be able to amortize those costs in a rent increase. And it's not all that hard to figure out if the money spent was just on correcting shortfalls in maintenance or a real upgrade.

If you craft the law properly nobody is disadvantaged all that badly for too long.

Both sides get a little more certainty unlike the old NYC "Moving day" custom.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moving_Day_(New_York_City)

"Moving Day was a tradition in New York City dating back to colonial times and lasting until after World War II. On February 1, sometimes known as "Rent Day", landlords would give notice to their tenants what the new rent would be after the end of the quarter, the tenants would spend good-weather days in the early spring searching for new houses and the best deals. On May 1, all leases in the city expired simultaneously at 9:00 am, causing thousands of people to change their residences, all at the same time."

I've seen old photographs of that and the streets are mass pandemonium.

DCSCA

Never Trumper Jonah Goldberg is irrelevant.

A has-been who has been since the day Donald Trump was elected. The greatest Trump triumph 'has been' to relegate the modern ideological conservative movement into irrelevancy.

Last month Jonah wailed about starting a 'third party' for the now homeless conservative ideologues who abandoned the GOP and railed endlessly against their party nominee... how's that going for 'ya, fella?

Looks like Goldberg will have to go out and get a real job. America needs truck drivers. It's tough being on the bottom of the deck, eh fella?

Lest you forget, revisit the 'Never Trump' musings of Jonah the Wailer in leading up to the nomination in 2016.

https://www.nationalreview.com/2016/03/never-trump-stop-donald-trump-nomination/

Why anybody pays any attention to this loser in 2021 is bewildering. The GOP is a populist party now and poor Jonah suddenly has discovered he, French, Will and other assorted ideologue 'tales' no longer wag the dog.

It's glorious.

Untold Stories: Time to Act Over the Corruption That is Killing Ethical Journalism
Aidan White

The world of journalism is full of good intentions but the idea of news media as a cornerstone of democracy and ethical values is fast disappearing according to a report released today by the Ethical Journalism Network.

The report, Untold Stories: How Corruption and Conflicts of Interest Stalk the Newsroom, covers 18 countries and exposes how financially-stricken news media are being overwhelmed by political and corporate forces.

The report finds that in countries both rich and poor, there are ‘dark arts’ at work in newsrooms: media managers are doing deals with advertisers to carry paid-for material disguised as honest news; reporters and editors accept bribes and irregular payments; and a culture of dependence on political and corporate friends makes it increasingly difficult to separate journalism from propaganda and impartial reporting from public relations.

Mel, thank you for posting the article. I am unfamiliar with the group. Conspicuously missing from that nation-by-nation report on journalism was a section on the United States.

I didn’t look at any of the videos on COVID19 misinformation. Not going to waste my time.

Your excerpt is well-taken and no doubt on point. What the groups says about other nations is both useful and accurate, but it doesn’t expose that in America that needs useful criticism.

It seems that Kamala may be on her way out. The long knives are out and no one is defending her. Vipers gonna vipe.

The Telegraph reported that China is warning Joe Biden to back off on Taiwan, as well. Isn't it wonderful when the hegemonies demands that the defender of an independent state tries bully tactics?

In the meantime the Brits are sending troops to Ukraine. They seem to have more concern for what happens next than Joe. By my clock, he's probably napping right now anyway.

Having said that, you can still create rent-control laws that are reasonably fair to both sides.
