      Heard that on Tucker. Jordan Peterson has said the same. But the unique point Hill made is that these people want to burn everything to the ground and replace it with nothing. They have nothing to offer. They just want to destroy anything ‘good’.

      “I have lost heaven,And know that for sure.My soul, once faithful to God,Now is destined for hell.
      I’ll set up my throne above,Cold and terrible will be the peak of it.Superstitious trembling is at its base,Master – most black agony.The one who will look with healthy looks,Will turn away, turn pale and deadly mute.Possessed by blind and cold deathness,will prepare a tomb with his happiness.You will sink down and I shall follow laughing,Whispering in your ears, “Descend, come with me, friend.” — Karl Marx from his poem Oulanem

      On the Departure of Brian Hook
      PRESS STATEMENT

      MICHAEL R. POMPEO, SECRETARY OF STATE

      AUGUST 6, 2020

      “ Brian Hook has decided to step down from his role as the U.S. Special Representative for Iran and Senior Advisor to the Secretary. Special Representative Hook has been my point person on Iran for over two years and he has achieved historic results countering the Iranian regime.

      He successfully negotiated with the Iranians the release of Michael White and Xiyue Wang from prison. Special Representative Hook also served with distinction as the Director of Policy Planning and set into motion a range of new strategies that advanced the national security interests of the United States and our allies. He has been a trusted advisor to me and a good friend. I thank him for his service.

      Following a transition period with Brian Hook, Elliott Abrams will assume the position of Special Representative for Iran, in addition to his responsibilities as Special Representative for Venezuela.”

      Sorry to see him go. As for Abrams, no likee. Read through accounts in the press. The Wankerati haven’t made up their minds whether which one they hate the most. Even Xinhua is reporting the change.

    Foreign staff at EU firms in Shanghai still unable to return, business group says
    Excerpt :

    SHANGHAI (Reuters) – Over half of European companies in China’s financial hub of Shanghai still have foreign staff who are unable to return after coronavirus border restrictions were imposed in March, a survey indicated on Thursday.

    The European Union Chamber of Commerce said the survey, conducted in July, had received answers from 143 companies, or about a quarter of its members.

    Of the respondents who had staff yet to return to Shanghai, 53% said it was because of administrative requirements involved in obtaining a re-entry visa, while 48% had their applications denied or delayed. Small and medium firms (SMEs), in particular, were affected disproportionately, the chamber said…”

    Report to Congress on Access to Tibetan Areas of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), Sec. 4 of the Reciprocal Access to Tibet Act of 2018, PL 115-330 // 22USC 1182

    Executive Summary
    This is the second annual report under Section 4 of the Reciprocal Access to Tibet Act of 2018 (P.L. 115-330), enacted December 19, 2018, which requires the Department of State to provide a report to Congress, within 90 days of enactment and annually thereafter for five years, regarding the level of access Chinese authorities granted to U.S. diplomats and officials, journalists, and tourists to Tibetan areas in China; a comparison with the level of access granted to other areas of China; a comparison between the levels of access to Tibetan and non-Tibetan areas in relevant provinces; a comparison of the level of access compared to the previous reporting year; and a description of the required permits and other measures that impede travel in Tibetan areas.

    This report covers 2019, with comparisons to 2018, as applicable.

    The People’s Republic of China (PRC) government systematically impeded travel to the Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR) and Tibetan areas outside the TAR for U.S. diplomats and officials, journalists, and tourists in 2019. The central government required all international visitors to apply for a Tibet travel permit to visit the TAR and regularly denied requests by international journalists, diplomats, and other officials for official travel. Approval for tourist travel to the TAR was easier to secure but often restricted around sensitive dates. U.S. official visits to the TAR, when permitted, were highly restricted. Travel to Tibetan areas outside of the TAR did not require a permit or, for diplomats and officials, additional prior notification by diplomatic note for specific meetings in Tibetan areas. However, requests to meet with government, religious, and civil society leaders in these areas were routinely denied. PRC security forces used conspicuous monitoring to intimidate U.S. diplomats and officials, followed them at all times, prevented them from meeting or speaking with local contacts, harassed them, and restricted their movement in these areas. Tibetan-Americans regularly faced restrictions on their travel to Tibetan areas. Journalist access to these areas remained restricted and limited.

      I don’t see anything that says student loan forgiveness. I do see that he is addressing items with mitigation already in effect (or just ended) – evictions, unemployment and student loans where he may extend that mitigation. The payroll tax cut is one I don’t love – but if Congress can’t get it together to pass a bill then it is one way to get money to those working. Not a fan of the student loan forgiveness.

    National Review, Andrew McCarthy

    Barr’s Dilema: How to get Politics out of the Justice Department

    McCarthy has a long article… he seems to be alluding to / predicting no indictments from AG Barr. I post here some snippets.

    “Plainly, the best way to get politics out of the Justice Department is to keep the Justice Department out of politics. Unfortunately, it has been hopelessly, haplessly mired in politics since early 2015, when former secretary of state Clinton’s email scandal broke, just as she was embarking on her ill-fated White House bid. Indicting officials of the last administration for alleged abuses of power against the succeeding administration would be antithetical to the depoliticization objective, even if an indictment were justified.

    “That is not lost on the attorney general. In his confirmation hearing, he touted the wisdom of Michael B. Mukasey, who took the helm at Main Justice in 2007, with the department reeling from Democratic claims of politicization. ***Barr recalled his esteemed predecessor’s admonition against an American degeneration into “a banana republic, putting political opponents in jail for offenses committed in a political setting. Even if they are criminal offenses, it’s something we just don’t do here.” *** That is why, Barr explained, “I don’t subscribe to that ‘lock her up’ stuff” — recalling the taunt Trump’s most fervent supporters delighted in squealing Mrs. Clinton’s way….”

    “Though baseless, the Trump-Russia investigation got three years of traction because it was effectively unsupervised. Obama holdovers and such Swamp technocrats as Rosenstein let the anti-Trump zealots at the FBI and Team Mueller run rampant. President Trump, a non-lawyer with no government experience, was overmatched and fearful that if he tried to rein in Mueller or FBI director James Comey, he’d be accused of obstruction (which he was, in any event). Barr, by contrast, is deeply versed in the criminal law and exudes confidence in directing subordinates….”

    “Flynn’s case is a hot potato. …”

    “Also conveniently elided in the Democrats’ case against the attorney general is Barr’s declination of prosecution against two top Trump nemeses, Comey and Andrew McCabe. Though they remain under Durham’s microscope, there were two other investigations. Comey made memoranda of his encounters with Trump, famously leaking one of them in an effort — successful, as it turned out — to force the appointment of a special counsel. But he mishandled these memos, some of which were later deemed to contain classified information. To the president’s chagrin, however, Barr determined that Comey’s improper dissemination of the material was neither knowing nor worthy of prosecution….”

    “That said, Barr has taken pains in testimony and speeches to distinguish abuses of power, which our system is designed to address politically, from crimes, which are the subject of court prosecution. Specifically with respect to spying that chills political activity and dissent, he notes that “it doesn’t necessarily have to result in a criminal investigation or a finding of a crime”; but it is critical to have accountability so that “safeguards [can be] built in” to protect civil liberties in the future.”

    “Barr has signaled that his approach to addressing this abuse may be a narrative report….”

    Still unsure why President Trump is touting the mask. I know he does play 3D chess. Waiting for more data. Meanwhile here is the best detailed explanation I’ve read. I haven’t thoroughly checked the writer’s credentials but with my limited understanding of physics it does make sense. I knew the virus is too small to be stopped by the mask but wondered about droplets which carry the virus. Also below it, a writing by a physician about how mask wearing affects one’s kidneys. (yes kidneys)
    – – –
    In physics we often talk about push and pull. We refer to this as Force. The size of the water droplets is irrelevant. The amount of force exerted on the mask (both a push and pull) from breathing is sufficient force to move those molecules of water vapor into and out of the holes in the mask. The droplets change in size to fit the holes. The virus and carbon dioxide or oxygen particles fit easily through those holes with water droplets which are small enough to fit through along with the particles. The water droplets just change size because the amount of force required to push them out or pull them in is less than the force created by just normal inhaling or exhaling.

    Water droplets that are larger will naturally drop to the ground before they become a problem for people we’re talking to or standing around. The size of water droplets stopped by the masks are too heavy to remain airborne long enough to land on someone’s face beyond about 12″. Water droplets small enough to remain airborne (aerosolized) continue to float in the air with covid-19 virus particles for up to three hours. The size of the water droplets that are created by the masks through the force (push) from talking and breathing are small enough to remain airborne for three hours and float on air currents, potentially infecting everyone inside any building everywhere in the building. Without UVA lights to kill the viruses, everyone unlucky enough to breathe in this aerosolized virus will become infected. The masks DO NOT STOP THIS PROCESS. IF ANYTHING AT ALL THEY INCREASE AEROSOLIZATION OF COVID-19.

    Secondly, imagine how much more covid-19 infected water vapor is inside the mask. You continue to breathe in these viruses and the amount is growing repeatedly as not all of covid-19 is released into the air around you wearing a mask. You reinfect yourself continuously as long as you wear it. This increases symptoms in infected individuals dramatically, and since only immunocompromised individuals are at risk, the suffering and death rates increase with mask use… Just as the mask catches some water vapour, trapping SOME covid-19 viral particles inside the mask, masks also reduce oxygen exchange, increasing the heart rates and breathing rates of wearers, placing them at risk for weakness, lightheadedness, headaches, difficulty concentrating, passing out, heart attacks, and other health issues such as asthma or bronchitis. In addition to covid-19 infections being INCREASED by mask use, we all carry a host of pathogens in our mouths. Infection from these pathogens increase with mask use, as well. Dr Hussey, PhD physics, microbiology, neurology, psychology, education, business administration, leadership training, astrophysics. My citations are the most current information on this subject area.

    The writing about how masks affect kidneys…
