A different insider dish on Trump
New York Post, by Seth Lipsky

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/22/2018 4:46:38 AM

With all the books about President Trump, one mystery has been ignored. How did this supposed clown manage not only to learn Ronald Reagan’s economic formula but also carry it to the next level? Bob Woodward has sketched a White House ruled by fear. Omarosa Manigault Newman has written a yarn about a president “unhinged.” Michael Wolff has penned a picture of “fire and fury.” Yet none has even tried to address the elephant in the room — how Trump built the platform of economic growth and jobs that managed to crack the Democrats’ presidential-election “Blue Wall” and leave our newscasters agape.

I do not think there is a mystery around "Trumponomics". The art of Economics is a solution looking for a problem. From kid´s who open a Kool-Aid stand to presidents of Sears and GM- one economic rule out shines them all- "Buy low - Sell high"- because the difference is your income. If you screw that rule up- as Sears did, you go out of business.

But, economists need jobs and so they come in with their theories about banking and grand global monetary transmutations and government meddling and international interest rates and differential marketing. All of it is the purest form of scatological study anyone ever heard of.

Trump, as a trialed business man, forced to make profits and learning first hand a few times what happens if you do not, is a refiner of theories- He has simply taken the gumbo and goo of high-thinking, bull scat artists like the way over-respected John Maynard Keynes (only government can make business work), the Great interest meddler, Alan Greenspan, and of course, never leave out "The State is Everything" economist and much sugar coated idiot, Karl Marx- and has boiled their theories down to get that final sweet tasting distillate and easy to swallow idea that profit is really all you need to know about business- and that getting the GD governments and moronic over-thinking economists out of the way of achieving that, makes everyone rich, including the governments!

The elephant in the room is that Trump, for all his plain and sometimes vulgar speech, is smarter than they are. He relates to the common man, not the liberal cocktail party crowd. He understands that the media is not interested in communicating the truth, but instead creating the "truth" to further their agenda.
The media is fond of that clichéd phrase "Speaking Truth to Power". How exactly does that work when the media is part of that "power"?

Brussels won’t allow Brexit deal do-over

Brussels is on edge, but it has no intention of going back to the Brexit drawing board. Chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier told a meeting of EU27 ambassadors Friday morning that whatever political “difficulties” Theresa May is experiencing in London, the bloc has a “duty” to stand firm on its key Brexit red lines, according to EU diplomats present. For her part, May is standing firm on the deal in the face of a gale of criticism and is intent on pushing the deal to a vote in the House of Commons. But if political opponents in her own party

To look back at the moment John Kerry entered US public life, addressing the Senate foreign relations committee on 22 April 1971, is to be struck by many things. There are the famous words, of course: “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?” There is the shock of dark, Beatles-inspired hair, the distinctly British-tinged accent. Above all, there is the self-possession.

Facing Deadlier Fires, California
Tries Something New: More Logging
Wall Street Journal, by Jim Carlton    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 11/18/2018 4:54:04     Post Reply
FRENCH MEADOWS RESERVOIR, Calif.—Obscured amid the chaos of California’s latest wildfire outbreak is a striking sign of change that may help curtail future devastating infernos. After decades of butting heads, some environmentalists and logging supporters have largely come to agreement that forests need to be logged to be saved. The current fires are hitting populated areas along the edges of forests and brush lands, including the 142,000-acre Camp Fire in Northern California’s Butte County. That now ranks as the most deadly and destructive in state history, killing at least 63 people, leaving hundreds missing and destroying more than 9,800 homes.

The Mainstream Media Is Not Independent

If you want to know where media bias resides, simply look at who the media isn’t questioning. The most recent row between CNN’s Jim Acosta and President Donald Trump reinforced this observation. On the heels of the Trump Administration’s decision to revoke the press pass for Jim Acosta (which a D.C. judge has since ordered the White House to reinstate), the “mainstream” media backed Acosta in decrying the purported assault on America’s hallowed First Amendment. Piggybacking on the mainstream media’s argument, the New York Times’ “True Conservative™,” Bret Stephens, shared his fear that the United States will resemble autocratic Turkey

After courting every city in America large enough to support its own Jimmy John’s franchise, Amazon is going to split its HQ2 between Long Island City in New York and Crystal City in the D.C. metro area. After all those governors, mayors, and even the Oak Ridge Boys begged Jeff Bezos to pick their city, the commerce conglomerate ultimately picked America’s largest city and its capital. It’s the equivalent of asking every microbrewery in America to enter into your contest to find the nation’s best beer, then after they invest significant time and expense,

Jim Acosta is smug, and no
court ruling changes that
Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article

So CNN’s Jim Acosta scored some court points with a ruling that orders the White House to give back his press pass, at least for the time being. But he still presents as a smug elitist. He presented as an out-of-touch elitist the day he jerked away from the arm of the reaching White House intern — the day he refused to cede the microphone and cede the floor and cede his time to the many other journalists who were patiently waiting to pose questions to the president. But post-ruling, caught on camera walking from the courthouse,

The race for Governor of Georgia between Republican Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams wasn’t particularly close. Kemp won by 55,000 votes. But since the election, Abrams has tried to position herself for a recount, or something, that might magically erase that impressive margin. Today she gave up, sort of: Stacey Abrams halted her run for Georgia governor Friday, but the Democrat said she would not concede the contest to Republican Brian Kemp and planned to launch a voting rights group to file “major” litigation challenging election policies. There will be no such “major” litigation. What would it challenge?

Mattis, Polish leaders talk

The possibility of a permanent U.S. military base in Poland moved a few steps forward this week. U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis met with his Polish counterpart Mariusz Blaszczak Tuesday to discuss Poland’s offer to spend $2 billion on a permanent base for U.S. troops and their families in the country. The base was jokingly called “Fort Trump” by Poland’s president after meetings with U.S. President Donald Trump. “We are working out the details on what the offer is, what can best contribute to alliance unity, to alliance security and to the continued strengthening of the bilateral relationship,”

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for adult film actress Stormy Daniels, lost a last-ditch appeal Friday to block the eviction of his law practice from its Newport Beach offices. In a brief hearing at Orange County Superior Court in Santa Ana, Judge Robert J. Moss affirmed his Oct. 22nd order that Avenatti and his staff vacate their ocean-view suite in a building across from the Fashion Island mall. He ordered them to leave by Monday. Avenatti’s longtime law firm, Eagan Avenatti, skipped $213,254 in rent payments due over four months, leading the landlord, the Irvine Co., to sue for eviction.

NORFOLK, Va. — The man who tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan can move out of his mother´s house in Virginia and live on his own, a federal judge ruled Friday. U.S. District Court Judge Paul L. Friedman granted John Hinckley Jr. the largest measure of freedom he´s had since shooting and wounding Reagan and three others outside a Washington hotel in 1981. Hinckley was confined for decades to St. Elizabeths Hospital in the nation´s capital. Starting in 2006, he began to make trips to visit his mother, who is now in her 90s

A Republican incumbent congresswoman from Utah pulled ahead of her Democratic opponent by several hundred votes Friday, gaining her first lead in the House contest since Election Day. After the latest tally, U.S. Rep. Mia Love, 42, held a razor-thin 419-vote lead over Democratic challenger and Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams for the state’s 4th Congressional District, FOX13 Utah reported. The two-term incumbent had previously trailed McAdams early Friday afternoon by 1,169 votes before the release of updated numbers from Utah County, the station reported.

Two southern Republican gubernatorial candidates are ready to move into their governor mansions after appearing to have pulled off victories in their races but their never-say-die Democratic opponents are refusing to give up – though the writing is on the wall. In Florida, the contest for governor between Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum appeared all but over Thursday, with a machine recount showing DeSantis with a large enough advantage over Gillum to avoid a hand recount in that race. The latest numbers posted online by the state of Florida show DeSantis with more than 33,683 votes than Gillum.

It has been speculated that Mitt Romney’s Utah Senate seat could serve as a prelude to another Presidential run. In the most ambitious version of events, he could even challenge Donald Trump in the 2020 primaries, newly legitimized and augmented by his actions in the Capitol Building. This would allow moderate Republicans to reclaim their party’s mantle and unroot alt-right influences. But would Romney do it? His willingness to unequivocally challenge Trump could be seen either as a pro or con by Republicans, depending on their opinions of the sitting president.

A top elections official in Florida who endured national humiliation after missing a midterms recount deadline by two minutes has told the Guardian that racism is “probably” a factor in the backlash against her.

Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that "the wealthy few" enjoy what, "in justice, belongs to all" and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants. Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peter´s Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium.

Broward County’s ballot recount hit yet another snag Saturday with 2,040 ballots lost or misplaced. The county’s eternally beleaguered Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said they were either misplaced, misfiled or mixed in with another stack. One thing she said she was sure of was that the ballots were still in the building. “The ballots are in this building. There would be nowhere else for them to be,” Snipes said. “The ballots are in the building. The ballots are in the building.” Snipes has been in the crosshairs of national controversy since Election Day. With a noon Sunday deadline looming,
