And, If I'm not mistaken (which I could be. I can't find the exact rule or law that covers this, so KD, don't blast me too bad...LOL)....

Trump could end a lot of the Governors' bull**** by rescinding his Emergency Declaration.
It was (and presumably still is) his National Emergency Declaration that gives them the authority to give many of the Bull**** Orders that have been issued.
If that is correct, then wouldn't his rescinding that Emergency Declaration remove that authority, and nullify the orders???

@Captainkidd -- For the most part, yes.

State Constitutions and Statutes differ. Many governors are flat-out IGNORING the limits in said Statutes, however. I will note that at the point such occurs the Federal Government, within its Constitutional DUTY to enforce "A Republican Form of Government" within all 50 states, is authorized to use any necessary force to put a stop to that, because once a state official does something like they have stepped outside the boundary of a "Republican Form of Government" (that is, one in which Statutes and Constitution control the boundaries of one's actions) and since there is a Constitutional DUTY for the Federal Government to enforce same that can be done using the lawful police powers and force of the Federal Government.

When I lived in the silly valley I started calling myself Token.. cause well I was the token white guy on them. Only to full the full brunt of how much of the asian H1s would rather I not have been there.

Outside of the valley, most of the H1s I've met/worked with are at best seat fillers. Managing to get a masters really doesn't seem to equate to being a decent engineer.

The bar to gain letters after your name, whether they be "BS", "MS" or "PhD" has dropped so low in the last 30 or so years that all said letter prove today is that you can pay the tuition and fees required.

I've read a decent number of theses over the years and the lack of anything ground-breaking in virtually every single one of them is eye-watering. More than one of said letter-bearers I've had the misfortune to work with or under has been personally responsible for the destruction of either divisions or entire firms due to what can only be described as a belief in skittle-****ting unicorns.

Hell, I've had HR tell me to back off doing interviews because I was stressing the candidates out. It was a fawking stressful job, I needed to see how/if they'd break when pushed.

So many lowered bars.. everywhere.

I sadly conclude that Karl is correct on this, provided DJT doesn't drop the mother of all indictments of all the crime in the DC elites. Barr is talking about it; Sidney Powell is talking about it; Trump's body language indicates it.

However, I am prepared to be wholly disappointed.

Again, I also agree with Karl that the next "election" will be decided by hot lead.

Right now, the future of the country is "all in" on a long-shot bet that the DOJ can uproot the pedophilic satanists that run this place. It's like holding a 2-7 off-suit and all in on the flop-turn-river will all be 7s.

It was a great platform that he torched as soon as he stepped into the White House when he co-signed on the republican back stabbing. You cant just pretend away the Blue wave in Arizona. The energy is with the people that are pointing out the corruption of Trumps Swamp after the performance of the CARES fiasco. I see this election cycle has nothing to do with the middle (there is no middle ground anymore) as much as it does with coordinated demoralization. Its about getting the other guys people so disgusted the just dont vote. I happen to think Joe is a better speaker than he is given credit for so if they can get him to hold it together during the debates, the moderators will fight against Trump very effectively asking him why he didnt get anything done with a republican congress in place.

It isn't just Trump.

The entire government is corrupt as hell. For many decades...

This Ticker could be the basis of a Declaration of Independence were we not lacking the gumption of our revolutionary ancestors.

I am ashamed of myself and my fellow Americans for not stopping the *garbage* when doing such would have been a relative cakewalk compared to attempting rebellion now.

I think I did more than most, yet I fell miserably short. Let me explain.

My crusade was in regard to looking at a 300 billion per year defense budget aimed at thwarting our then primary adversary-the Soviet Union, and observing American businessmen tripping and falling over themselves trying to sell the USSR machinery and technology considered dual-use, that could be used for commercial as well as military purposes.

Through FOIA attempts to get information such as lists of businesses and the items they want to sell to the USSR that fell under possible export restrictions, I found that our government classified this information as top secret due to national security considerations...

Seriously? The Soviets certainly knew for what and from whom they were issuing purchase orders, as did the -patriotic- businessmen greedily accepting the POs, as did our government agencies tasked with protecting critical military technologies from falling into enemy hands. An interested American taxpayer-me-just could not be permitted this information.

One of the worst examples was selling the USSR the precision ball bearing grinders that were essential for mass production of miniature ball bearings used in guidance systems (I would assume such devices are now digital) for nuclear warheads, specifically multiple independent re-entry vehicles (MIRV).

It was a critical and decisive breakthrough to have the capability to have not just one nuke warhead atop a rocket, but 16 or 18 warheads each able to be separately and specifically targeted.

Despite congressional testimony from miniature ball bearing manufacturers that 80% of the production of these bearings by American firms possessing the grinders (Bryant Centalign Model B) went to American defense purposes, the sale of the precision bearing grinders was allowed despite Defense Department objections.

Insanity, ****ing insanity.

So, for many years in the 80s and early 90s a vacation visit to the Eastern shore included several days in Wash. D.C. in which I pleaded the case to mostly deaf ears on capitol hill.

1992 brought an end to vacations when renting changed to house payments, so I crusaded through the mail, FOIA, and phone calls. I tried (but not nearly hard enough) and accomplished nothing and eventually shifted gears in another direction and focused on running the family business. I never lost interest and devoured as much information as I could but never saw a serious practical solution to the core problem of citizen disinterest in varied government bone-you-up-the-butt nonsense, so I sort of became a designated observer, though the reality was that pitchforks and torches were in order...but I was always told that was too radical. Corruption continued to rule the day as new normal passed to new normal, and now we have the new ab-normal.

Now, it would be a herculin task to merely list the myriad governmental absurdities that abound. We have and continue to repeat the Soviet dual-use fiasco with the Communist Chinese, we seem to have perpetual military involvement where we accomplish nothing, the direction of things was off the rails before the Plandemic and now we appear on the verge of serious societal breakdown, overseen by a total failure of a government that we all share some measure of blame for.

Seems that all that is lacking at this point is what history will record was The triggering event...

Society and civilization are the thinnest of veneers...

Like others here who voted for Trump in 2016 I won't be voting at all for president in 2020, unless I write something in. We gave it a shot and as was pointed out here many times it was always a gamble whether the guy would be full of crap. In the best evaluation he is incompetent and incapable of getting things done, in the worst he is something more sinister.

I am actively looking to leave Texas at this point, it is well on its way to becoming California 2.0, minus the nice weather. The question is where to go...

Id recommend western South Dakota or western WY. If you can handle the cold. Low populations, conservative, low taxes.

@Twainfan2 - Pay attention to the MARGIN in each state for 2016. If it's closer than 10 points you're within 2 election cycles of going the wrong way. If it's closer than 5 it can flip in the NEXT 4-year cycle. WY and SD are both far enough away from that to be reasonable.

TX is not in danger THIS time, but it is NEXT time. Arizona IS in danger this time around and so is NC, GA, FL (of course), MI (of course), WI (of course) and PA (of course).

If you're looking more than 2 cycles out you're crazy as any prediction beyond that distance is going to be buried by confounding factors. ****, at the rate we're going we could trivially have blow-out inflation, a no-bull**** race war and a real war somewhere all within 8-10 years. In fact the former is EXTREMELY likely and if it occurs radically increases the odds of the other two.

The problem is that if Trump loses Florida, given the number of EVs involved, he's ****ed. I cannot come up with any reasonable EV scenario under which he can win if FL goes to the Blue side of the sheet.

@Karl, roots run deep. I'm holding out hope that freedom wins out. Our history proves that miracles can happen when things are bleak. I've lived a comfortable life as has the majority of Americans. It's time to water the tree and nurse it back to health. God bless.

"If you're looking more than 2 cycles out you're crazy as any prediction beyond that distance is going to be buried by confounding factors."

I'm looking more at where there is at least a steady tax base that isn't revolving around industry's likely to be hit hard by the next "Thing."

So tourism based, travel based, leisure based that's all out. Can't be in a major city due to race riots. A small city that is within 30 to 45 mins of major industry area is good, farmland around with abundant food supply is good, on a lake is good. Now, is there "JOBS" in those target areas.. um.

As Karl said-those letters after a name are in no way indicative of thinking ability.

In my years of crusading I was sort of astonished on several occasions in different congressional offices when I was asked with what university I was a professor.

The misidentification was simply because I immersed myself in thousands of pages in books and documents and lectures that pertained to my subjects of interest. And I guess they thought I was-I'm cringing at the thought-an expert.

Degree disclaimer: I did dabble in college a bit but in no way approached a degree. The business dean confirmed it was all or nothing when I suggested I didn't need a degree, just wanted the business education sans all the non-business nonsense, 'cause I was going to work in the family firm. I said see ya...

----------------

As for voting, I too am done except local stuff, the deep state or the 1% of the 1%, or whatever rules over us does so in spite any voting we do. The *garbage* just goes on as usual, regardless of the person in the WH.

Most of the disappointment in presidential voting has been the few occasions when my candidate won.

I boycotted the first election I could vote because I thought the choice-Ford v. Carter-was an absurdity.

Several times I wrote in Frank Zappa, the musical composer.

The first winner I voted for was Reagan. I sort of knew better, the gig was up when *he* selected G.H.W. Bush as VP. The spending went up every year, drug war idiocy, the O'Neil fiasco (he should have shut the ****er down, like Slick Willie did), etc., soured me on him, 2nd term election was a write in for Zappa.

Next up, G.W. Bush, had a Hillary opposing him. In other words, Gore winning was too horrible to contemplate so I had to vote for W. 9/11 BS Patriot Act crap, war in Iraq, etc. 2nd term election-write in for Zappa.

And now, Trump. He's just a showman, playing his role. Hillary was his Trump card and it's been played...

WE, have been played too...

The direction of things, generally, has been steady as she goes, straight towards the iceberg...president after president, especially after JFK was JFKed.

Trump, at best and to be charitable, has done some admirable tinkering around the edges, but the iceberg of bull**** promises and lies looms straight ahead.

Plain fact is he could have done much via EO. He didn't do it. Promised to counter all the Obama EOs. Didn't do that either.

I'm done. Not even gonna write in a dead composer...

Time to check my zeros.
