This audacious effort was carried out under the cover of an undersea mining operation sponsored by eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes.  Azorian, incorrectly identified as Project Jennifer by the press, was the most ambitious ocean engineering endeavor ever attempted and can be compared to the 1969 moon landing for its level of technological achievement.  Following the sinking of a Soviet missile submarine in March 1968, U.S. intelligence agencies were able to determine the precise location and to develop a means of raising the submarine from a depth of more than 16,000 feet. Previously, the deepest salvage attempt of a submarine had been accomplished at 245 feet. The remarkable effort to reach the K-129, which contained nuclear-armed torpedoes and missiles as well as cryptographic equipment, was conducted with Soviet naval ships a few hundred yards from the lift ship, the Hughes Glomar Explorer.  While other books have been published about this secret project, none has provided an accurate and detailed account of this remarkable undertaking. To fully document the story, the authors conducted extensive interviews with men who were on board the Glomar Explorer and the USS Halibut, the submarine that found the wreckage, as well as with U.S. naval intelligence officers and with Soviet naval officers and scientists.  The authors had access to the Glomar Explorer's logs and to other documents from U.S. and Soviet sources. The book is based, in part, on the research for Michael White's ground-breaking documentary film, Azorian: The Raising of the K-129, released in late 2009. As a result of the research for the book and the documentary film, the CIA reluctantly issued a report on Project Azorian in early 2010, even though they tried to withhold details that were in that brief document from the public record by redacting one-third of it. In this book, the story of the CIA's Project Azorian is finally revealed after decades of secrecy.

(Publisher) https://www.amazon.com/Strange-Rebels-1979-Birth-Century-dp-B00CKZHSQM/dp/B00CKZHSQM/ref=mt_audio_download?_encoding=UTF8&me=&qid= Few moments in history have seen as many seismic transformations as 1979. That one year marked the emergence of revolutionary Islam as a political force on the world stage, the beginning of market revolutions in China and Britain that would fuel globalization, and the first stirrings of the resistance movements in Eastern Europe and Afghanistan that ultimately led to the collapse of the Soviet Union. More than any other year in the latter half of the 20th century, 1979 heralded the economic, political, and religious realities that define the 21st century. Strange Rebels shows how the world we live in today began to take shape in this pivotal year. 1979 saw a series of counterrevolutions against the progressive consensus that had dominated the postwar era. The year's epic upheavals embodied a startling conservative challenge to communist and socialist systems around the globe, fundamentally transforming politics and economics worldwide. In China, 1979 marked the start of sweeping market-oriented reforms that have made the country the economic powerhouse it is today. 1979 was also the year that Pope John Paul II traveled to Poland, confronting communism in Eastern Europe by reigniting its people's suppressed Catholic faith. In Iran, the Islamic Revolution transformed the nation into a theocracy almost overnight, overthrowing the shah's modernizing monarchy. Farther west, Margaret Thatcher became prime minister of Britain, returning it to a purer form of free-market capitalism and opening the way for Ronald Reagan to do the same in the United States. And in Afghanistan, a Soviet invasion fueled an Islamic holy war with global consequences; the Afghan mujahedin presaged the rise of al-Qaeda and served as a key factor in the fall of communism. Weaving the story of each of these counterrevolutions into a gripping narrative, Strange Rebels is a groundbreaking account of how these far-flung events and disparate actors and movements gave birth to our modern age.

Strangely enough, although the city itself and even theKaaba have more than once suffered from destructive floodsthat have poured down the narrow valley, Mecca is poorlyprovided with water. There are few cisterns to catch therains and the well water is brackish.

In Iran, the Islamic Revolution transformed the nation into a theocracy almost overnight, overthrowing the shah's modernizing monarchy. Farther west, Margaret Thatcher became prime minister of Britain, returning it to a purer form of free-market capitalism and opening the way for Ronald Reagan to do the same in the United States. And in Afghanistan, a Soviet invasion fueled an Islamic holy war with global consequences; the Afghan mujahedin presaged the rise of al-Qaeda and served as a key factor in the fall of communism. Weaving the story of each of these counterrevolutions into a gripping narrative, Strange Rebels is a groundbreaking account of how these far-flung events and disparate actors and movements gave birth to our modern age.

So many of our problems, the author shows, have been exacerbated by ideology, which John Adams aptly called the "science of idiocy." With incisive thought and wicked humor McCotter attacks the idiocy that pervades Washington.

#TheNewAmericanCivilWar: Human networks “don’t collapse, yet the subsidence can be dramatic” Michael Vlahos @JHUWorldCrisis

Image:  Areas allotted to or claimed by barbarian groups in 416–418.  Public domain. #TheNewAmericanCivilWar: Human networks “don’t collapse, yet the subsidence can be dramatic”  Michael Vlahos @JHUWorldCrisis Michael E Vlahos, Johns Hopkins, in re:  Where we are in the time of the virus.  The United States and China, and even the United States and continental Europe, as competing civilizations.  Our apparently quite-bright future.  "We are living in an age of correction." Americans enjoy the apocalyptic—as movie fare—and even our literary narratives, past and future, span the narrow range between The Fall of Rome and the End of Civilization (https://www.world-archaeology.com/books/fall-of-rome-and-the-end-of-civilization-the/) , for authoritative past; and World War Z (https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2013/06/the-civilizational-significance-of-zombies/276948/) , or the Zombie Apocalypse, as our future fare.  Our actual human past tells quite a different story. Things actually don't "fall apart." Rather, for at least the last 5,000 years, human activity has built up and built out what might be called "world networks" (following the Greek shorthand, oikoumene, for "known world"). These networks—all of them, including our own present—become elaborate webs of human hubs (cities) and spokes (land and sea thoroughfares).  Then they peak and, at some point, subside. With some exceptions, they do not collapse (yet the subsidence can be dramatic). The Western succession of networks is clearly identifiable: ~3300 BC - 1177 BC: The Bronze Age ~600 BC - ~450/600 AD: Classical Antiquity ~900 - ~1350/1450: High Middle Ages ~1700 - ~1914: The Global "Modern" 1972 - 2020: Global Modernity II

Michael Vlahos  @JHUWorldCrisis Michael E Vlahos, Johns Hopkins, in re: Surprise attack, with a US government unenthusiastic about acknowledging the worst right off the bat. Why should it? We were smack in the middle of the best economy in history. John Buford rides into Gettysburg in 1863, wondering where Lee’s army is. Next morning, news of Henry Heath’s heavy infantry division on the Chambersburg road. At that moment, the Union was in an existential risk, no reason to think they could get out of it.  Similar to how the virus seems to be winning now. First, take a deep breath and look at the situation again, Tempted to panic? In fact the Union was sitting pretty, having scouted the area for months.  We thought Pearl Harbor was the end, but Japan was brittle and riding entirely on the Kedo Butai.

Audible Audiobook – Unabridged https://www.amazon.com/Six-Months-1945-Stalin-Churchill/dp/B009RFH28M/ref=tmm_aud_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr= From the author of the best-selling One Minute to Midnight,  Six Months in 1945 is a rivetting account of the pivotal six-month period spanning the end of World War II, the dawn of the nuclear age, and the beginning of the Cold War. When Roosevelt, Stalin, and Churchill met in Yalta in February 1945, Hitler's armies were on the run and victory was imminent. The Big Three wanted to draft a blueprint for a lasting peace, but instead set the stage for a 44-year division of Europe into Soviet and Western spheres of influence.  After fighting side by side for nearly four years, their political alliance was rapidly fracturing. By the time the leaders met again in Potsdam in July 1945, Russians and Americans were squabbling over the future of Germany and Churchill was warning about an "iron curtain" being drawn down over the Continent.  These six months witnessed some of the most dramatic moments of the 20th century: the cataclysmic battle for Berlin, the death of Franklin Roosevelt, the discovery of the Nazi concentration camps, Churchill's electoral defeat, and the dropping of atomic bombs on Japan. While their armies linked up in the heart of Europe, the political leaders maneuvered for leverage: Stalin using his nation's wartime sacrifices to claim spoils, Churchill doing his best to halt Britain's waning influence, FDR trying to charm Stalin, Truman determined to stand up to an increasingly assertive Soviet superpower.  Six Months in 1945 brilliantly captures this momentous historical turning point, chronicling the geopolitical twists behind the descent of the iron curtain, while illuminating the aims and personalities of larger-than-life political giants. It is a vividly rendered story of individual and national interests in fierce competition at a seminal moment in history.

ESA reengages its Solar System probes #in the time of the virus. Bob Zimmerman BehindtheBlack.com
578
Photo: This artist's concept depicts a faraway solar system like our own -- except for one big difference. Planets and asteroids circle around not one, but two suns. NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope found evidence that such solar systems might be common in the universe. Spitzer did not see any planets directly, but it detected dust that is kicked up from disks of asteroids and comets like the one depicted here. The disks were spotted circling all the way around several double, or binary, stars, some of which were closer together than Earth is to our sun. In fact, Spitzer found more disks in orbit around close-knit binary stars than single stars. This could mean that planets prefer two parent stars to one, but more research is needed to figure out exactly what's going on.

He thought the ship was being used to house not medical help but something nefarious.  Surfer off Malibu on a large surfboard, told by lifeguards to come in, he tried to escape; LA County police boat managed to get him back on the beach, where he was arrested. Bay Area has banned certain bags: the reusable variety is thought to harbor viruses so people need to use reusable plastic bags —or be arrested and fined.

Image:  Lenin's funeral (1925), by Isaak Brodsky (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaak_Brodsky) (detail). Dan Henninger, Wall Street Journal editorial board, in re:  Politics, and the future of Democratic activities. .. На картине изображены (слева направо): А.И. Ульянова-Елизарова (спиной), неизвестный (в полупрофиль), Г.Е. Зиновьев, Л.Б. Каменев, Н.К. Крупская (у изголовья), Ф.Э. Дзержинский, И.В. Сталин, М.И. Калинин, неизвестный, А.И. Рыков, Я.Э. Рудзтак (в профиль), А.С. Енукидзе (на переднем плане в профиль), Н.И. Бухарин (на втором плане), С.С. Каменев (на переднем плане). Первый вариант картины Бродский выполнил в 1924 году. С апреля этого года государство в лице Центральной комиссии по увековечиванию памяти В.И. Ленина установило жесткий контроль за всеми видами его изображения, обосновывая это опасностью усвоения широкими слоями населения искаженного внешнего образа вождя. В марте 1925 года художник направляет репродукцию картины в Комиссию и получает отрицательный отзыв. В этом же году он готовит другой вариант картины. Партийные покровители художника - члены комиссии Авель Енукидзе и Климент Ворошилов одобрили новую работу, разрешив к распространению. Переданная в Центральный музей В.И. Ленина из института Маркса-Энгельса-Ленина в 1936 году, картина вскоре попала в запасники. Циркуляром от 16 октября 1950 года картину было предложено передать на спецхранение в Министерство госбезопасности с примечанием: "Бродский И. У гроба вождя. Колонный зал Дома Союзов. Имеется изображение Каменева, Зиновьева, Рыкова, Енукидзе".

Image:  Anti-communist (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-communism) propaganda in a 1947 comic book published by the Catechetical Guild Educational Society warning of "the dangers of a Communist takeover." (Public domain.) Today, some large US media firms simply repeat Chinese propaganda that defames the entire Western world and crows about its own brilliance.  Bizarre. Andy McCarthy: statistics about fatality rates in China are much more modest than those in the US.  This is obviously Chinese propaganda, and nonetheless is being reported by official organs [including the WHO].   Thaddeus McCotter: We’re also seeing the US media not reporting anything about essential matters: no statistics at all from China, and acting as though Beijing isn’t putting people in concentration camps—Uyghurs, Kazakhs—as though the CCP cared a whit about the lives of their own citizens, which it’s never yet been seen to do. By artificially keeping their numbers low they’re endangering the lives of their own people and all the rest of us.

We need to expose and counter the lies as they're being repeated by fellow-travellers who, incomprehensibly, parrot the CCP lies, saying we need to learn from China; this disinformation is being spread internationally.  We need at the least to de-fund the WHO, whose leader is [a stooge for Xi Jinping  –ed.].   World governance is at risk: if China gets away with lying to the WHO and the world community, I don't see how we can talk about functioning civil society when the world’s second-strongest power not only blatantly acted in irresponsible, immoral and illegal ways, but literally plunged the world into the most serious crisis since World War II.

The primary population of the region of Syria is described as "Arabs (settled)" and inland as "Arabs (nomadic)"  Public domain. Itai Brun, Institute of National Security Studies in Israel; in re:  COVID-19 in Israel and the region.  The corona virus is making its way across the Middle East and may [be a harbinger] of certain kinds of collapse; we already have bad governance and wars. Rages of infection are far greater than what’s being reported, esp in Syria and Egypt, among many. Governmental mitigation efforts are being favorably received, but we could be looking at a huge humanitarian disaster.  Israel needs to prepare for the possibility of  [chaos], certainly including Gaza and the West Bank. PA is cooperating with Israel; Gaza, of course, is not.  Even Hamas seems to understand that this is not a good  time for more provocations. In Iran, it’s a huge crisis.  All over the Middle East, populations are quite young; nonetheless, high numbers of refugees and displaced persons. The governments don’t have good data.  Syria,   , and Yemen: we don’t have reports specifically about the virus; official reports are very, very low [and not credible].    We’re not yet at the peak of the outbreak.  Brigadier General (Ret.) Itai Brun joined INSS as a Deputy Director for Research and Analysis in December 2018. In his last position in the IDF he served as the head of Israel Defense Intelligence (IDI) Analysis Division (2011-2015). Prior to this position, he was the head of the Analysis Department in the Israeli Air Force Intelligence and the first director of the IDF's DADO Center for Interdisciplinary Military Studies. He founded the center in late 2006, after the second Lebanon War, and served as its director until January 2011. ‪·         https://www.inss.org.il/publication/coronavirus-in-the-middle-east/ ‪·         https://www.inss.org.il/publication/coronavirus-discussion/ ‪·         https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/significant-drop-in-military-ops-in-the-west-bank-due-to-the-coronavirus-623181 ‪·         https://www.timesofisrael.com/fearing-gaza-virus-spread-hamas-preps-for-mass-quarantines/

Michael Farren, Mercatus Center, George Mason University, & TheHill; in re:  Skyrocketing unemployment claims: 6.6 million this week.  The national economy has seized.    It’ll get worse before it gets better; it does mean that social distancing is working, diminishing the transmission of the disease. We’re trading off a short financial crisis—a recession—in favor of a recovery sooner. Won’t see needed relief till mid-April or later.   Unemployment insurance in no way can sustain a family; it’s designed to have people continue looking for work, but here we specifically don't want people out looking for work.      This is not a standard recession—the sky isn't falling—this is not the result of deep structural problems; rather, it's a government-induced recession to [avoid something worse].     Canada and Denmark:  don't want people to leave employment and have to file for UE, so he economy can leap out on the other side; Denmark is subsidizing employers for up to 75% of salaries/expense.  Down the road, we need to revamp our plans for such crises.

The notion of Americans’s fleeing the US to Canada: it’s not easy to cross the border for no good reason, and Canada’s marginally-better infection rates make it not worth the effort. Mrs Pelosi’s blue-ribbon commission to investigate the virus, where she attributed “blood on his hands” to President Trump. Not a blue-ribbon committee—if she appoints them, it won't be— it looks like simply  a smear job.  . .  .   They have a semi-comatose candidate who’s rising in the polls.    February 1942 fireside chat by FDR:  he delivered [difficult] news; he was sincere, but you could tell he was delivering bad news.   I heard Trump as being cautiously confident that we’d come in under 100,000.   Tactically the right move: tell the people the grim truth, but make sure that the immediate future is hopeful and the future beyond immediate is good.

Photo: English: President Roosevelt, in the Oval Room of the White House, refers to his own map as he emphasizes a point in his radio address to the people Roosevelt's fireside chat was presented February 23, 1942. In advance of the address Roosevelt asked citizens to have a world map in front of them as they listened to him speak. "I'm going to speak about strange places that many of them never heard of—places that are now the battleground for civilization," he told his speechwriters. "I want to explain to the people something about geography—what our problem is and what the overall strategy of the war has to be. … If they understand the problem and what we are driving at, I am sure that they can take any kind of bad news right on the chin." Sales of new maps and atlases were unprecedented, while many people retrieved old commercial maps from storage and pinned them up on their walls.

The entry, descent, and landing (EDL) phase of the Mars Science Laboratory mission begins when the spacecraft reaches the Martian atmosphere, about 81 miles (131 kilometers) above the surface of the Gale crater landing area, and ends with the rover Curiosity safe and sound on the surface of Mars. Entry, descent, and landing for the Mars Science Laboratory mission will include a combination of technologies inherited from past NASA Mars missions, as well as exciting new technologies. Instead of the familiar airbag landing systems of the past Mars missions, Mars Science Laboratory will use a guided entry and a sky crane touchdown system to land the hyper-capable, massive rover. The sheer size of the Mars Science Laboratory rover (over one ton, or 900 kilograms) would preclude it from taking advantage of an airbag-assisted landing. Instead, the Mars Science Laboratory will use the sky crane touchdown system, which will be capable of delivering a much larger rover onto the surface. It will place the rover on its wheels, ready to begin its mission after thorough post-landing checkouts. The new entry, descent and landing architecture, with its use of guided entry, will allow for more precision. Where the Mars Exploration Rovers could have landed anywhere within their respective 93-mile by 12-mile (150 by 20 kilometer) landing ellipses, Mars Science Laboratory will land within a 12-mile (20-kilometer) ellipse! This high-precision delivery will open up more areas of Mars for exploration and potentially allow scientists to roam "virtually" where they have not been able to before. In the depicted scene, the spacecraft's descent stage, while controlling its own rate of descent with four of its eight throttle-controllable rocket engines, has begun lowering Curiosity on a bridle. The rover is connected to the descent stage by three nylon tethers and by an umbilical providing a power and communication connection. The bridle will extend to full length, about 25 feet (7.5 meters), as the descent stage continues descending. Seconds later, when touchdown is detected, the bridle is cut at the rover end, and the descent stage flies off to stay clear of the landing site. http://JohnBatchelorShow.com/contact http://JohnBatchelorShow.com/schedules Twitter: @BatchelorShow #HotelMars: Resheduling ExploreMars to august in the Summer of Mars launches.

Trying to weaponize the pandemic.          Prisoner release in Syria, esp Idlib; Russia came down heavily. Kurds. Release of ISIS fighters can become another factor in Syria.        Houthis fired two ballistic missiles to Saudi Arabia. US-based system took the two missiles down; it's all coming from Iran.  Also missiles from Gaza. Iranian agents dragged a dissenter into their embassy and murdered him there.   Another case in Germany, and another such in Denmark.               Iraq:  targetting troops.  New sanctions from State Dept.  IRGC.

They receive the same pay and treatment as othersoldiers, and are generally sent to distant points, to diminish the chances ofdesertion. Most of these recruits are sent to the regiments in the Caucasusand Central Asia, and a good many are found in the Siberian regiments. All money sent to exiles must pass through the hands of the ofiicials.It is a common complaint, and probably well founded, that a goodly partof this money sticks to the hands that touch it before it reaches its right-ful owner.

Churchill was the only prominent politician to foresee the nuclear age and he played a leading role in the development of the Bomb during World War II. He became the first British Prime Minister with access to these weapons, and left office following desperate attempts during the Cold War to end the arms race. Graham Farmelo traces the beginnings of Churchill's association with nuclear weapons to his unlikely friendship with H. G. Wells, who coined the term 'atomic bombs'. In the 1930s, when Ernest Rutherford and his brilliant followers, such as Chadwick and Cockcroft, gave Britain the lead in nuclear research, Churchill wrote several widely read newspaper articles on the huge implications of their work. In 1940, British physicists first showed that the Bomb was a practical possibility. But Churchill, closely advised by his favourite scientist, the controversial Frederick Lindemann, allowed leadership to pass to the US, where the Manhattan Project made the Bomb a terrible reality. British physicists played only a minor role in this vast enterprise, while Churchill ignored warnings from the scientist Niels Bohr that the Anglo-American policy would lead to a post-war arms race. After the war, the Americans reneged on personal agreements between Roosevelt and Churchill to share research. Clement Attlee, in a fateful decision, ordered the building of a British Bomb to maintain the country's place among the great powers. Churchill inherited it and ended his political career obsessed with the threat of thermonuclear war. Churchill's Bomb is an original and controversial book, full of political and scientific personalities and intrigues, which reveals a little-known side of Britain's great war-leader.

Audible Audiobook – Unabridged  https://www.amazon.com/Ministers-War-Winston-Churchill-Cabinet/dp/B00VAVUEAY/ref=tmm_aud_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr= In May 1940, with France on the verge of defeat, Britain alone stood in the path of the Nazi military juggernaut. Survival seemed to hinge on the leadership of Winston Churchill, whom the king reluctantly appointed prime minister as Germany invaded France. Churchill's reputation as one of the great 20th-century leaders would be forged during the coming months and years as he worked tirelessly first to rally his country and then to defeat Hitler. But Churchill—regarded as the savior of his nation and of the entire continent—could not have done it alone.  As the prizewinning historian Jonathan Schneer reveals in Ministers at War, Churchill depended on a team of powerful ministers to manage the war effort as he rallied a beleaguered nation. Selecting men from across the political spectrum—from his fellow conservative Anthony Eden to the leader of the opposing socialist Labor Party, Clement Attlee—Churchill assembled a war cabinet that balanced competing interests and bolstered support for his national coalition government. The group possessed a potent blend of talent, ambition, and egotism. Led and encouraged by Churchill, the ministers largely set aside their differences—at least at first. As the war progressed, discord began to grow. It reached a peak in 1945. With victory seemingly assured, Churchill was forced by his minsters at war to dissolve the government and call a general election, which, in a shocking upset, he lost to his rival, Attlee.  Authoritatively recasting our understanding of British high politics during World War II, Schneer shows that Churchill managed the war effort by managing his team of supremely able yet contentious cabinet members. The outcome of the war lay not only in Churchill's individual brilliance but also in his skill as an executive and in the collective ability of men who muted their personal interests to save the world from barbarism.

Photo: English: Crew outside kitchen and mess hall cars, Northern Coast Timber Company, ca. 1911 Description | English: Caption on image: 448 PH Coll 516.2355 Northern Coast Timber Company was in business ca. 1907 to ca. 1915, with logging operations at Kangley and then at Maple Valley. Kangley is a community on a small tributary of the Green River, eleven miles northeast of Issaquah in southwest King County. It was named by the Northern Pacific Railway for John Kangley, general manager of Northern Pacific Coal Company in 1889. Alternate names were Kangley Junction and Durham Junction. A railroad depot was built in 1906 and abandoned in 1920. Maple Valley is a community ten miles south of Renton near the Cedar River in central King County. In 1879, the town was founded by George W. Ames of Seattle, and platted in 1890. In 1888, the name was chosen by George Ames, when a post office was established. It was not for the abundant western maple trees in the area, but for the Maple family (Jacob and Samuel), who settled on the Duwamish River before the Denny party arrived at Alki Point.Subjects (LCTGM): Railroad dining cars--Washington (State); Mess halls--Washington (State); Cooks; Waitresses--Washington (State); Lumber industry--Washington (State); Northern Coast Timber Company--People--Washington (State); Northern Coast Timber Company--Facilities--Washington (State); King County (Wash.)

Photo: English: President Roosevelt, in the Oval Room of the White House, refers to his own map as he emphasizes a point in his radio address to the people Roosevelt's fireside chat was presented February 23, 1942. In advance of the address Roosevelt asked citizens to have a world map in front of them as they listened to him speak. "I'm going to speak about strange places that many of them never heard of—places that are now the battleground for civilization," he told his speechwriters. "I want to explain to the people something about geography—what our problem is and what the overall strategy of the war has to be. … If they understand the problem and what we are driving at, I am sure that they can take any kind of bad news right on the chin." Sales of new maps and atlases were unprecedented, while many people retrieved old commercial maps from storage and pinned them up on their walls.

Image:  All the stars in the sky? NASA John Cochrane, Hoover, in re:  Does $2 trillion answer the hole in the US economy now that there’s no commerce?  Of course not. We’ll just have to pay for it all in taxes.   . . .  We’re protecting the oldest among us with the future of the youngest of us. This economic shutdown is the panic button; you’re supposed to defend against a pandemic with [medical actions].  Larry Kudlow mentioned $6 trillion! Use the Defense Production Act?  Not necessary; can just drop regulatory barriers. Maybe the Act was good for WWII.  The Taiwanese, Singaporean and South Korean models:  when you hear of a virus, quickly test test test; isolate people who have it and lock down  their areas—that costs billions, not trillions.  Bailouts, now called loans to troubled corporations.  When you do that, you're bailing out stockholders and bondholders; a bankruptcy there is [not the end of the world]. Lending is better than grants.  Handing out money then demanding that the govt appoint board members . . .!  The Fed knows how to keep banks [alive]; I worry about non-banks, which could be on the edge of [a catastrophe] if we get a wave of bankruptcies..

[ e.g., in the emergency relief bill under the alarm at the Wuhan virus, demanding $35 million for curtains at the Kennedy Center]. “This was despicable, beyond the pale: cramming it with pork for constituencies in order to get reelected while in the middle of a true pandemic.  Beneath the contempt of the American people.”  “I think Mrs Pelosi thought the airlines would get a $0 billion grant, but that was limited by the green new deal.”  This will lead to nationalization of the airlines; is that what she intends? Where this is leading is to re-drawing districts.    The leftleft is feeling more comfortable; they’re in very safe districts and can afford to propose crazy stuff.

Chief among Roosevelt's antagonists was his friend Joseph P. Kennedy, a stock market magnate and the patriarch of what was to become one of the nation's most storied dynasties. Kennedy's financial, political, and personal interests aligned him with a war-weary American public, and he counted among his isolationist allies no less than Walt Disney, William Randolph Hearst, and Henry Ford - prominent businessmen who believed America had no business in conflicts across the Atlantic. The ensuing battle - waged with fiery rhetoric, agile diplomacy, media sabotage, and petty political antics - would land US troops in Europe within three years, secure Roosevelt's legacy, and set a standard for American military strategy for years to come. With millions of lives - and a future paradigm of foreign intervention - hanging in the balance, The Sphinx captures a political giant at the height of his powers and an American identity crisis that continues to this day.

Covering the formative years of his life, Roosevelt’s entries show the transformation of a sickly and solitary Harvard freshman into a confident and increasingly robust young adult. He writes about his grief over the premature death of his father, his courtship and marriage to his first wife, Alice Hathaway Lee, and later the death of Alice and his mother on the same day. The diaries chronicle his burgeoning political career in New York City and his election to the New York State Assembly. With his descriptions of balls, dinner parties, and nights at the opera, they offer a glimpse into life among the Gilded Age elite in Boston and New York. They also recount Roosevelt’s first birding and hunting trips to the Adirondacks, the Maine woods, and the American West. Ending with Roosevelt’s secret engagement to his second wife, Edith Kermit Carow, A Most Glorious Ride provides an intimate look into the life of the man who would become America’s twenty-sixth president.   Brought together for the first time in a single volume, the diaries have been meticulously transcribed, annotated, and introduced by Edward P. Kohn. Twenty-four black-and-white photographs are also included.

He writes about his grief over the premature death of his father, his courtship and marriage to his first wife, Alice Hathaway Lee, and later the death of Alice and his mother on the same day. The diaries chronicle his burgeoning political career in New York City and his election to the New York State Assembly. With his descriptions of balls, dinner parties, and nights at the opera, they offer a glimpse into life among the Gilded Age elite in Boston and New York. They also recount Roosevelt’s first birding and hunting trips to the Adirondacks, the Maine woods, and the American West. Ending with Roosevelt’s secret engagement to his second wife, Edith Kermit Carow, A Most Glorious Ride provides an intimate look into the life of the man who would become America’s twenty-sixth president.   Brought together for the first time in a single volume, the diaries have been meticulously transcribed, annotated, and introduced by Edward P. Kohn. Twenty-four black-and-white photographs are also included.

After a devastating financial crisis, furious voters sent a new breed of politician to Washington. These young Republican firebrands, led by "Fighting Bob" La Follette of Wisconsin, vowed to overthrow the party leaders and purge Wall Street's corrupting influence from Washington. Their opponents called them "radicals," and "fanatics." They called themselves Progressives. President Theodore Roosevelt disapproved of La Follette's confrontational methods. Fearful of splitting the party, he compromised with the conservative House Speaker, "Uncle Joe" Cannon, to pass modest reforms. But as La Follette's crusade gathered momentum, the country polarized, and the middle ground melted away. Three years after the end of his presidency, Roosevelt embraced La Follette's militant tactics and went to war against the Republican establishment, bringing him face to face with his handpicked successor, William Taft. Their epic battle shattered the Republican Party and permanently realigned the electorate, dividing the country into two camps: Progressive and Conservative. Unreasonable Men takes us into the heart of the epic power struggle that created the progressive movement and defined modern American politics. Recounting the fateful clash between the pragmatic Roosevelt and the radical La Follette, Wolraich's riveting narrative reveals how a few Republican insurgents broke the conservative chokehold on Congress and initiated the greatest period of political change in America's history.

Police cap­tains took hefty bribes to see nothing while reformers writhed in frustration.  In Island of Vice, Richard Zacks paints a vivid portrait of the lewd underbelly of 1890s New York, and of Theodore Roosevelt, the puritanical, cocksure police commissioner resolved to clean it up. Writing with great wit and zest, Zacks explores how young Roosevelt goes head to head with Tammany Hall, takes midnight rambles with muckraker Jacob Riis, and tries to convince two million New Yorkers to enjoy wholesome family fun. When Roosevelt's crackdown succeeds too well, even his supporters turn on him, and TR discovers that New York loves its sin more than its salvation.  With cameos by Stephen Crane, Mark Twain, and a horde of very angry cops, Island of Vice is an unforgettable snap­shot of turn-of-the-century New York in all its seedy glory and a brilliant miniature of one of America's most colorful presidents.

This is the story of how TR took on Manhattan vice... and vice won.  In the 1890s, New York City was America's financial, manufacturing, and entertainment capital, and also its preferred destination for sin, teeming with forty thousand prostitutes, glittery casinos, and all-night dives. Police cap­tains took hefty bribes to see nothing while reformers writhed in frustration.  In Island of Vice, Richard Zacks paints a vivid portrait of the lewd underbelly of 1890s New York, and of Theodore Roosevelt, the puritanical, cocksure police commissioner resolved to clean it up. Writing with great wit and zest, Zacks explores how young Roosevelt goes head to head with Tammany Hall, takes midnight rambles with muckraker Jacob Riis, and tries to convince two million New Yorkers to enjoy wholesome family fun. When Roosevelt's crackdown succeeds too well, even his supporters turn on him, and TR discovers that New York loves its sin more than its salvation.  With cameos by Stephen Crane, Mark Twain, and a horde of very angry cops, Island of Vice is an unforgettable snap­shot of turn-of-the-century New York in all its seedy glory and a brilliant miniature of one of America's most colorful presidents.

As America struggles with an economic debacle akin to the Great Depression, nothing could be timelier than an authoritative account of the New Deal, masterfully written by Michael Hiltzik, author of the acclaimed history of the Hoover Dam, Colossus. In this richly peopled, vividly rendered narrative, Hiltzik describes how the urgent, short-term relief measures of Franklin Roosevelt's Hundred Days evolved into a transformative concept of the federal role in American life. Rather than being the product of a single ideology, the New Deal emerged from the clash of ideas held by advisors from very different backgrounds. With historical and psychological insight, Hiltzik sheds light on the lives of the gargantuan characters who fought for and against it: Herbert Hoover, whose own administration gave birth to many of the programs that would become part of the New Deal; General Hugh Johnson, the West Pointer whose pugnacious leadership of the National Recovery Administration symbolized the New Deal for millions of Americans; Harry Hopkins, whose closeness to Roosevelt earned him the moniker "deputy president"; and many other fascinating figures. What emerges is a saga of how FDR managed to recast the federal government into something that still inspires: a unifying structure with the concept of social justice at its heart.

(https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=dp_byline_sr_audible_3?ie=UTF8&search-alias=audible&field-keywords=Blackstone+Audio%2C+Inc.) (Publisher).  Audible Audiobook – Unabridged https://www.amazon.com/Heir-Empire-City-Theodore-Roosevelt/dp/B00GXFXY4A/ref=tmm_aud_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=  Theodore Roosevelt is best remembered as America's prototypical "cowboy" president—a Rough Rider who derived his political wisdom from a youth spent in the untamed American West.  During his early political career, Roosevelt took on local, New York Republican factions and Tammany Hall Democrats alike, proving his commitment to reform at all costs. He combatted the city's rampant corruption and helped to guide New York through the perils of rabid urbanization and the challenges of accommodating an influx of immigrants—experiences that would serve him well as president of the United States.  A rivetting account of a man and a city on the brink of greatness, Heir to the Empire City reveals that Roosevelt's true education took place not in the West but on the mean streets of nineteenth-century New York.

Because these states are at acute risk, state leaders should take action to shore up state finances as soon as possible. The Illinois Policy Institute is recommending that Illinois institutes targeted tax relief to save jobs. Under our plan, the state would mandate that all local governments delay the collection of one of this year’s property tax installment payments until Oct. 1 for businesses to help cope with lost revenue and prevent layoffs. Illinois and other fiscally troubled states with massive debt burdens should also pursue preventive action to reform their pension systems, which could face an economic shock in the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic.

America’s arsenal of democracy goes into action to defeat the virus. @ConradMBlack
819
Image:  Boeing assembly line at Wichita, Kansas (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wichita,_Kansas) (1944) Conrad Black, author, in re:  FDR: “The buck stops on the president’s desk” —speak clearly, no nonsense, no cheap shots, just show the county that you’re leading. People will respond to that. In WWII, the US had to supply Australia and Great Britain.  Note that a lot of Americans had German and Italian ancestors, and the Irish weren’t well disposed toward the Britons; FDR pointed out that this wasn’t a question of ethnicity but of the survival of democracy.  Two weeks ago tomorrow, in the first big press conference with HHS Secretary and others, the Secretary said they’d have enough test kits in a week, but didn’t realize how complex the process was – no one had any reason to know that this could be a problem on the scale it is, due to the mendacity of the Chinese. If the antimalarial drug is effective, that’ll be very good because  there are supplies of that.  After all the terrible political strife there’s been, the country is pulling together and the govt is doing its absolute impartial best. Recall that FDR was an extremely controversial figure throughout his terms; the press attacks never stopped. The daily presentations are exhausting President Trump.  He might leave some of them to the vice-president. He’s made his point that he’s in charge. He has no obligation to run himself down physically.    FDR: “Dr Win-the-War”   Sixty years later, the last lend-lease payment.  “The arsenal of democracy” 29 Dec 1944

Image:  A wheat (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheat) harvest in Idaho (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idaho) Victor Davis Hanson, The Case for Trump, and  Hoover, in re: Millions in lockdown. Or whatever you call it; store shelves may be empty briefly, but they’re replenished with vast numbers of foods, things, riches. Farmers are still very much working. The elite don’t want their children in farming, trucking, such careers, these are the people who keep the country running. Bicoastal activities are great—insurance, banking—but when you get home, you need actual food. And US food practices are clean: the most stringent in the world.  And you sure don't want to poison your water or reputation. We have the cleanest food in the world, and we’re self-sufficient in in energy. We have food security because we produce more food than the world can eat. Virus: of those tested, even t hose who are sick and tested, about 80%  are negative. Not a Biblical plague. Once we get the tests, we can correlate them with the [mortality?] rate.  More people tested changes the numerical analyses.   In South Korea, with ever more tests, it's starting to look like a bad flu. Italy:  Is sui generis – 16% . . .  and the average age of Italians is much older than the average age of Americans.  And northern Italy is a Chinese enclave. US was the first to close borders to Chinese; and Italian restaurant kitchens and loos aren’t quite up to US standards. Finally, American medical care is frankly better than Italian medical care.

Image:  Chiang Mai road sign decorated with Doi Suthep (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doi_Suthep) .   Permissions:  see below.   Michael Yon, from Thailand; in re:  The virus in Southeast Asia and HK.  When last we spoke with Michael,  a week ago, Thailand was not much concerned with the Wuhan virus.   Yesterday, 212 cases here; it’s starting to go vertical. Bangkok closed bars, schools, cockfights; probably will happen here. A Thai student I know has just raced back to Thailand to avoid being locked out later, is starting her 14-day quarantine right now.  A slow response to a virus can mean that control is lost. If it goes to Stage Three (tertiary transmissions), they will lock down the whole country. Many of my Thai friends haven't even started to take it seriously, although some have. Rice prices have increased; SE Asian nations trying to stock up on food.  In Hong Kong, beginnings of the second wave of infections—also in Taiwan and Singapore. Currently, there’s nothing celebratory in Hong Kong, where they’re quite stressed out. Protests? Some, but mostly cyberdemos. Protests not at all over, but no one wants a million people on the street right now.  Mainland armed police are much on Hong Kong streets, not in their normal uniforms.  The Carrie Lam govt is not providing responsible information; Hong Kongers are angry; she’s a Xi puppet.   The first dog to die was in HK; my family dog here in Chiang Mai is doing very well.  Freedom in short supply in the countries concerned with the invisible virus. ..

("In the partially elective system of tanistry, the heir or tanist was elected from the qualified males of the royal family.") Arthur Waldron, University of Pennsylvania; in re: Stability of the PRC and what comes afterward between US and PRC?  Origins of the virus; requirement of stability in China for the commerce to continue.   Xi early said he was personally in charge of solving the virus matter.  The US is the meal ticket for China; how does it benefit China to damage the US?  In China, is the younger generation ready for a major change in the Communist party?  The artists and academics are miles ahead of the party.  Xi does not want to have a successor being groomed, and ensured that that would not happen. Ergo, there’s no clear succession path and the infighting will probably be intense. In Chinese classics, the question of the root of succession: since ancient times, when the emperor is first proclaimed, he must immediately name a successor. Xi emphatically has not done this. ..

Xi’s claim that the US introduced the virus: astounding disinformation; PRC as a criminal enterprise. @LizPeek

Image:  Disinformation: Deception, Disinformation, and Strategic. Communications: How One Interagency Group. Made a Major Difference by Fletcher Schoen and Christopher J. Lamb. Elizabeth Peek, TheHill and Fox News, @LizPeek; in re: Some states have halted primary elections. Even though Joe Biden avoided major gaffes, fact-checking the next day on things he said may have worked against him.  Bernie went after him on some matters that Biden tried just to shrug off; not convincing.   The Chinese PLA now claims that the US introduced the virus into China and that China is in the lead to fight it. Astounding disinformation. China then ejects US journalists. Will it ever go back to business as usual? Profound Chinese corruption: it’s a criminal enterprise.

Published for the War Department by the United States government printing office on 28 April 1945, though V-E Day (May 8) was still days away. Szyk was recognized as a generous contributor of art for use by the U.S. War Department, and particularly with regard to the selling of US War Bonds. This particular illustration also appeared in other printed media without the faces of Hitler and Mussolini being crossed out. It also appeared in wartime propaganda film, “Two Down and One to Go”, directed by Frank Capra.

Oligarchs and oil barons may still dominate international news coverage, but their prosperity masks a deep-rooted demographic tragedy. Faced with staggering population decline and near-certain economic collapse driven by toxic levels of alcohol abuse, Russia is also battling a deeper sickness: a spiritual one, born out of the country’s long totalitarian experiment. In The Last Man in Russia, the award-winning journalist Oliver Bullough uses the tale of a lone priest to give life to this national crisis. Father Dmitry Dudko, a dissident Orthodox Christian, was thrown into a Stalinist labor camp for writing poetry. Undaunted, on his release in the mid-1950s he began to preach to congregations across Russia with little concern for his own safety. At a time when the Soviet government denied its subjects the prospect of advancement, and turned friend against friend and brother against brother, Dudko urged his followers to cling to hope. He maintained a circle of sacred trust at the heart of one of history’s most deceitful systems. But as Bullough reveals, this courageous group of believers was eventually shattered by a terrible act of betrayal, one that exposes the full extent of the Communist tragedy. Still, Dudko’s dream endures. Although most Russians have forgotten the man himself, the embers of hope that survived the darkness are once more beginning to burn. Leading readers from a churchyard in Moscow to the snow-blanketed ghost towns of rural Russia, and from the forgotten graves of Stalin’s victims to a rock festival in an old gulag camp, The Last Man in Russia is at once a travelogue, a sociological study, a biography, and a cri de coeur for a dying nation—one that, Bullough shows, might yet be saved.

Undaunted, on his release in the mid-1950s he began to preach to congregations across Russia with little concern for his own safety. At a time when the Soviet government denied its subjects the prospect of advancement, and turned friend against friend and brother against brother, Dudko urged his followers to cling to hope. He maintained a circle of sacred trust at the heart of one of history’s most deceitful systems. But as Bullough reveals, this courageous group of believers was eventually shattered by a terrible act of betrayal, one that exposes the full extent of the Communist tragedy. Still, Dudko’s dream endures. Although most Russians have forgotten the man himself, the embers of hope that survived the darkness are once more beginning to burn. Leading readers from a churchyard in Moscow to the snow-blanketed ghost towns of rural Russia, and from the forgotten graves of Stalin’s victims to a rock festival in an old gulag camp, The Last Man in Russia is at once a travelogue, a sociological study, a biography, and a cri de coeur for a dying nation—one that, Bullough shows, might yet be saved.

Oligarchs and oil barons may still dominate international news coverage, but their prosperity masks a deep-rooted demographic tragedy. Faced with staggering population decline and near-certain economic collapse driven by toxic levels of alcohol abuse, Russia is also battling a deeper sickness: a spiritual one, born out of the country’s long totalitarian experiment.
