No, I posted about it a year ago.

MoDo didn't win any Pulitzers for reporting, though.

Thankfully for the Pulitzer prize, because otherwise it would entirely discredit the award.

She may occasionally veer into the truth, probably by accident or personal pique. I think she is a bitter spinster, in the original meaning of that word. The newer one, as well, I guess.

Her acid pen stylings seem good to the various sides, depending upon whom she's sneering her catty attitudes at this time. I find it hard to believe she continues to have a job at the NY Times, and I think it is to their discredit that she does.

Maureen Dowd is as clueless why Trump is president as Philly is.

Why was it an official policy of the government to move all our manufacturing offshore?

The flyover people put Trump in office it wasn't the Russians.

I would like to pick up the newspaper, read in a magazine or see on my webpage a story about a woman that screwed her the way to the top, using men like toilet paper.

Yah know better living through divorce and community property.

We've all seen this happen but all women are victims now. That is the narrative so the socialists can create another victim class that they can throw at white men.

They are only doing what their owners want.

If they don't, they might lose their employment with them, when they hire on others who will do what they want.

BTW, we call those owners 'capitalists.' The titans of business, industrialists, and their Wall Street interest associates. They need the off-shoring, or they would not have such high profits. Why do you hate capitalism and profit-making motives? Did you know you did?

Wait, you think this was the work of... socialists? Duuuuude.

Similarly, we only found out there were grand jury indictments after they were unsealed. There are purportedly many more that remain sealed for now.

Disclosing partial findings before the prosecutor is ready to bring charges is rare. It tips off associates who may be also targets of the investigation.

The feds sometimes sweep up 100 or more perps on charges in one fell swoop, instead of taking them one by one. That does not mean they lacked probable cause to arrest many of them before they took them all at once. It means they waited until they had it on all of them. Here's the last time that happened.



One of Felix Sater's several felony convictions was for his part in a financial fraud with the Gambinos, iirc. Then he became a senior adviser to DJT, and the second top official in Bayrock, the foreign company that financed about four large projects for the Trump Org using laundered money.

The silent hand of Adam Smith was predicated on his feelings about free trade. It was not moving the means of production to other states.

Especially other states like China which as I've said have punked, all our leaders. We've sacrificed so much to our very peculiar empire.

The whole conceit was to move China away from the Soviets but our IC could not gather the fact that the Soviets were headed toward financial Armageddon. It was all BS. It was also to try to win the Vietnam War which didn't happen.

So we failed on every level. We've empowered the ruling class of China that teaches its citizens that we are not to be trusted.

You should read about how the Fed policies on top of this situation have screwed the flyover people. Its all in Stockman's book that you won't ever read.

You have a lot of very strong opinions without portfolio.

There was a recent survey which showed that over 50% of population believes Trump was targeted though illegal means.
It was the group that most accurately called the 2016 election.

The media and democrats have failed in their efforts.
If Trump hits 50% and sustains it you can expect the democrats to declare victory on people tangential to Trump and fold their tents.


Keep your head down and admire the shot.

I already pointed out that was based on about 350 responses.

It had no statistical validity as a poll, so it didn't even claim to state a margin of error. Then they had the nerve to claim that 55% was an overwhelming number. 55% of 350 is... wait for it... 192 people.

So sure, they proved THE OVERWHELMING opinion of THE COUNTRY right here, from 192 people.

I'm beginning to suspect that it isn't really rain on my leg here, despite what you claim. Hmmm.

Also, IBD/TPP was not the most accurate call for 2016. I'm not sure they even claim to be. They claim they were the most accurate in the prior 3 races. They missed it by at least 4 points in 2016, and got the sign wrong, also. Any polling that her up by 4 points had half the error of IBD/TPP, and also got the sign right.

Please answer this question: is the governmental policy the result of what large businesses want, that they get by controlling political donations and lobbying, or not?

Yes, maybe it isn't old school capitalism, but it could be neo-capitalism.

The old Ricardian capitalist theory was that trade imbalances would cause large capital outflows, shrink the money supply, and balance things up naturally. So there was also no thought of a world reserve currency, or that countries would agree to accumulate such a reserve currency instead of demanding the gold backing the paper. Or that there would be paper without backing, AND that it would become a reserve currency for the world. Or that arrangements would be finagled to require the world's most vital product (oil) had to be purchased in dollars.

The neo-capitalism is financial capitalism, and it's based on the petrodollar hegemony.

It's a dirty concept and uses very dirty means, so

YOU AIN'T SEEN NUTTIN' YET.

The real power of the coercive control freaks hasn't been touched. Give it time to fester some more. Gang wars always go real bad just before they run of people to threaten and kill.
