MICHAEL GONZALEZ, Senior Fellow, Douglas and Sarah Allison Center for Foreign Policy, The Heritage Foundation, Former Speechwriter, Securities and Exchange Commission, Former Foreign Correspondent, Wall Street Journal, Author, “The Plot to Change America: How Identity Politics is Dividing the Land of the Free" and "BLM: The Making of a New Marxist Revolution," @Gundisalvus Mike Gonzalez explains why America is an exceptional nation and the threats posed to its continued prosperity: “Americans have never lost their freedom. How come they're so attached to freedom? And I think it has to do the way we are constituted…the more we've gotten away from the way we are constituted, the more we're going to become victims of subjugation” Gonzalez: Black Lives Matter, as explained at length in "BLM: The Making of a New Marxist Revolution,” was created by people who were trained by violent, far-left organizations, such as the Weather Underground SAM FADDIS, Former Clandestine Operations Officer, CIA, former Congressional Candidate, Editor, ANDMagazine.com, Author, “Beyond Repair: The Decline and Fall of the CIA,” @RealSamFaddis Sam Faddis talks about Aafia Siddiqui's supposed affinity towards violence and the threat she poses to the American homeland: “We're talking mass murder and we're talking the end of the United States…You've gotta get on one side of that or the other. If you're advocating in support of Aafia Siddiqui, you're advocating for mass murder and the destruction of the United States” Faddis responds to the recent Associated Press report claiming that the CIA does not find the “Havana Syndrome” to be a product of dubious foreign nations

Grading the Biden Team's Foreign Policy

The Net Assessment crew assesses President Joe Biden's foreign policy in his administration's first year. There appear to have been more failures than successes, and Chris, Melanie, and Zack debated why that might be. But, as Frank Gavin explains in the lead essay at the Texas National Security Review, a bit of perspective is in order. Crafting and executing foreign policy is difficult, even for a seasoned hand like Biden. To the extent that the promise of his approach to the world hasn't lived up to reality, how much of that can be tied to his vision (is there one?), how much to poor execution, and how much to other factors over which the president has no control? Zack is annoyed with all the talk of a looming civil war in the United States, and Melanie gripes about the New York Times' coverage of a transplant patient who was the recipient of a pig's heart. Chris (with an assist from Melanie) faults newly-inaugurated Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin for wanting to make it easier to spend taxpayer money on a new stadium for the Washington Football Team. Attaboys to one of the first Tuskegee Airman, Gen. Charles McGee, who passed away at the age of 102, and to Sen. Mike Rounds of South Dakota for standing up to Trump.   Links:  Quick!

President Biden announced last month that his administration purchased 500 million at-home Covid-19 tests that Americans will be able to order for free. That pledge came while the country was dealing with Omicron, which has only continued to fuel an explosive growth in cases. We answer some of the questions of when and where those tests will become available. The U.S. meets with Russia today in Geneva, with other NATO allies set to join throughout the week. It's a high-stakes conversation, with the Associated Press stating that these talks could “shape the future of not only the [US-Russia] relationship but the relationship between the U.S. and its NATO allies.”  And in headlines: A deadly fire in the Bronx killed at least 19 people, the three white men who killed Ahmaud Arbery were all sentenced to life in prison, and Amy Schneider became the first woman on Jeopardy! to win more than a million dollars in a regular season.

We have finally finished our Summer Olympics Sports Movie marathon and are excited to begin our much anticipated deep dive into Untold, a riveting Netflix Docuseries created by Chapman and Maclain Way. To kick off this riveting docuseries, we welcome the consummate podcast maestro and perennially insightful Aaron White of Feelin' Film for an in-depth discussion of Malice at the Palace. The first entry of Untold, Malice at the Palace explores infamous Pistons-Pacers brawl that occurred on the fateful night of November 19th, 2004. Deconstructing the monolithic media narrative that vilified Ron Artest & his Pacers teammates (Jermaine O'Neal, Stephen Jackson) for becoming embroiled in a chaotic melee after a fan threw a beer at Artest, this documentary reminds the viewer that there are multiple sides to every story. Hopefully, after watching this episode and listening to our podcast, you'll be a little less eager to jump to conclusions and a little less certain about who is truly at fault for what the Associated Press deems to be "the most infamous brawl in NBA history." We certainly are.

The Idaho Commission of Pardons and Parole voted 4-3 to recommend life without parole for Pizzuto, but the governor denied the move. Should the state move forward, this will be the first execution in Idaho in nearly 10 years. The last executions conducted in Idaho were those of Paul Ezra Rhoades in November 2011 and Richard Leavitt in June 2012. The only form of execution allowed in Idaho is death by lethal injection.

Andrew Cuomo on Monday proposed cutting the penalty for public possession of a small amount of marijuana, a change in state law that would defuse some criticism of the New York Police Department's stop-and-frisk policy in minority communities. With three weeks remaining in the legislative session, Cuomo said his bill to reduce the criminal misdemeanor to a violation with a fine up to $100 would save thousands of New Yorkers, disproportionately black and Hispanic youths, from unnecessary arrests and criminal charges. https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2012/06/06/defining_deviancy_down_in_new_york/ Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

This is Stephen Schmidt from the Gazette digital news desk and I'm here with your update for Thursday, December 30th. We should get a break from snow on Thursday, with a chance for more to come on Saturday. According to the National Weather Service it will be partly sunny in the Cedar Rapids area with a high near 31 degrees. A calm wind will blow all day. On Thursday night it will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 19 degrees. In the state's weekly COVID-19 information update, the number of hospitalizations for the coronavirus continues to drop, but new cases ticked up again this week. According to the Iowa Department of Public Health, the number of people being treated for COVID-19 in Iowa hospitals dropped from 747 to 711, although those in intensive care rose from 158 to 165. The number of patients on ventilators inched down from 101 to 97. Of those hospitalized for the virus, 80.6 percent had not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  In all, Iowa saw 11,234 new COVID-19 cases this week, up from 10,381 new cases last week. Linn and Johnson Counties both reported the most new cases in a week that either county has seen since November of 2020. This surge in Iowa appears to be before the highly contagious omicron variant of the disease has arrived. The variant is hitting states like New York right now, and according to the Associated Press new cases of COVID-19 in the United States have soared to their highest level on record at over 265,000 per day on average. Nationwide, new cases per day have more than doubled over the past two weeks. A driver escaped a fiery semi tractor-trailer crash uninjured after falling asleep while driving on Interstate 380, according to a Buchanan County Sheriff's Office news release detailing an accident Christmas week. Investigators said Ryan Thieman, 49, of Marble Rock lost control at about 4:25 a.m. Dec. 21 while driving on southbound I-380 near mile marker 51. The semi struck the inside guardrail of the bridge over Lime Creek. Leaking fuel ignited a fire, which engulfed the truck and extended to the median between the northbound and southbound lanes. Thieman was able to exit the semi without injuries from the crash, the release stated. He later was cited for failure to maintain control. The southbound lanes of I-380 were shut down between mile markers 49 and 55 for about 5 hours to allow the wreckage to be extinguished and cleared. A Cedar Rapids man is accused of stealing tools and lottery tickets from the Hy-Vee Food Store at 279 Collins Rd. NE. Jason B. Ross, 51, faces two felony charges — first-degree robbery and theft of lottery ticket — and fourth-degree theft, a serious misdemeanor. Officers said Ross entered the store through the back door and stole a Hy-Vee jacket, several tools and roughly $3,000 worth of Iowa Lottery tickets, according to a criminal complaint. When Hy-Vee employees confronted Ross, he produced a fixed-blade knife, backed out of the store and ran, according to the complaint. He left the lottery tickets behind but took the other items.

There is a 40 percent chance of snow predicted after 3 p.m. and a 50 percent chance of snow before midnight. Linn County and its sheriff's office are paying a former deputy and his lawyers over half a million dollars to settle his assertions that fellow deputies belittled him for taking leave to help care for his newborn son. Scott Becker initially filed a lawsuit against the county in January 2020 in Linn County District Court, but it was refiled in U.S. District Court in February 2020. In his suit, Becker said he took time under the Family Medical Leave Act to care for his child in 2018, but then faced harassment and retaliation from co-workers who didn't want to fill in for him while he was out. Under terms of the settlement, Becker will be paid $334,062 and Fiedler Law Firm in Des Moines will be paid $240,937, according to a document provided by the county According to the Associated Press, the county attorney prosecuting the case of two https://apnews.com/article/fairfield-des-moines-iowa-conspiracy-homicide-87dfe280796d778c0ad55a829e1990b5 (Iowa teens charged with murde)r in the death of their high school Spanish teacher said in court documents they surveilled her pattern of life, ambushed her along her daily walk and dragged her into the woods, returning later to hide her body.

Is Solar Power Getting More Expensive in California?

Real Estate News: Real Estate Investing Podcast

Solar advocates are sounding the alarm on proposed changes to California's rooftop solar program. The changes would reduce the savings that solar customers enjoy, and potentially add a new monthly fee to connect to the grid. Regulators say reforms are necessary because non-solar customers are paying too much to maintain the grid, but solar supporters say the changes will discourage people from installing solar and make it difficult to meet California's green energy goals.Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.The California Public Utilities Commission released the proposal on Monday, December 13th. (1) There's a long list of changes that include a reduction in the discount consumers would get for installing a solar system. That would increase the amount of time it takes to recoup the cost of the system. The break even window would expand to about double what it is now or about ten years.New Fees, Reduced Sell-Back AmountsThe proposal also includes a monthly Grid Participation Charge of $8 per kilowatt of installed solar. If you have an 8 kW system, for example, you'd be paying an extra $64 a month to hook up to the grid. The fee would be imposed on solar customers so they could pay their “fair share of the cost of maintaining the grid.”New solar customers would also get paid a lower amount for any excess electricity they produce and sell back to the utilities. That wouldn't impact existing customers right away. They'd be able to continue with their existing rate structure for the first 15 years of their system. After that, they would transition from net metering to net billing which pays less for any excess energy produced.Net billing has been highly criticized as a disincentive for solar adoption because many consumers have relied on the money they get from producing excess electricity to help pay for their systems. Solar costs have come down but for many people, solar is still too expensive.Incentives for Residential Storage BatteriesRegulators are hoping the new rules will encourage the installation of residential storage batteries so that solar customers can keep the excess energy they produce, and use it during peak hours in the evening. Peak hours are between 6 and 9pm.If solar homes are getting a wholesale price for the excess energy they produce during the day, and are charged full price for energy they need during the evening, they end up paying the difference. If they install a storage battery, there's no extra cost. Regulators say much of this proposal is to address the strain on the grid during those peak hours, after the sun goes down.Long List of ChangesThere are several other items that the CPUC is proposing that include an Equity Fund to help provide community solar in low-income and disadvantaged communities, new rules that would allow oversized residential solar systems to accommodate future needs for vehicle and appliance charging and electrification, and a change in the way that solar customers are billed from yearly to monthly, possibly because of that proposed monthly grid participation fee.The state's three main utilities support the proposed changes. Pacific Gas & Electric, San Diego Gas & Electric, and Southern California Edison, along with the CPUC, say the savings that solar customers are currently getting are so big that they are not paying their fair share of the grid's operating costs. The solar industry and advocates say the changes will make it difficult for California to reach a goal for zero-carbon emissions by 2045.Will This Hamper Clean Energy Goals?Susannah Churchill for Vote Solar told the Associated Press that the proposal will “move us backward on clean energy and block many Californians' ability to help make our grid more resilient to climate change.” (2) The rooftop solar program was launched in 1995 to encourage more people to “go solar.” According to the solar industry, 1.3 million California homes now have solar. That's more than any other state in the U.S. Plus, a California law enacted last year, requires that all new homes have solar.The CPUC changes would be phased in over four years for new customers, but if they take advantage of a $3,200 discount on a residential storage system, they'd transition into the new rate structure right away, which pays less for the excess energy that's produced. But they'd get that big discount on an energy storage system.CPUC Commissioner Guzman Aceves says this proposal is all about distributing the cost of maintaining the grid in a way that doesn't unfairly impact non-solar customers, and transitioning to a solar system that uses the sun to produce electricity during the day, to one that can also produce electricity after the sun goes down. That can be done if more people install storage batteries.The CPUC is taking public comment on this proposal and could vote on it by the end next month. If it's approved, the new policy would take effect four months after a final decision.If you'd like to read more about this topic and how you can submit comments to the CPUC, you'll find links in the show notes at newsforinvestors.com.You can also join RealWealth, for free.

Koniec listopada. Prokurator Ewa Wrzosek, jedna z najbardziej znienawidzonych przez obecną władzę prokuratorów, informuje na Twitterze: Otrzymałam alert Apple o możliwym cyberataku na mój iPhone ze strony służb państwowych. Okazuje się, że Apple rzeczywiście wysyła do użytkowników na całym świecie podobne ostrzeżenia. Chodzi o izraelski system Pegasus, który pozwala służbom włamać się do każdego telefonu. Ewa Wrzosek dostaje je jako pierwsza w Polsce. Niedługo później amerykańska agencja prasowa Associated Press publikuje wyniki swojego śledztwa: prokurator Wrzosek rzeczywiście była inwigilowana. Nie była jedyna: na celowniku służb znalazł się także inny prawnik: adwokat Roman Giertych. Dziennikarze AP posiłkowali się ustaleniami naukowców z uniwersytetu w Ontario, którzy badają działanie systemu Pegasus.  To jednak nie koniec. Po kilku dniach ta sama agencja AP publikuje informację o kolejnym inwigilowanym. Tym razem chodzi o senatora Koalicji Obywatelskiej Krzysztofa Brejzę. 33 prób włamania na jego smartfona dokonano między kwietniem i październikiem 2019 r. Trwała wtedy kampania wyborcza do Parlamentu. Krzysztof Brejza był szefem sztabu opozycji. Czy oznacza to, że Prawo i Sprawiedliwość inwigilowało opozycję? Czy mamy polskie Watergate? Wszystko na to wskazuje. Dziś opowiemy czym jest system Pegasus, skąd się wziął i czy to groźna broń w rękach szaleńców. System Pegasus to produkt izraelskiej firmy NSO Group, założonej przez byłych agentów elitarnej wojskowej jednostki 8200. To ludzie z tej formacji stoją prawdopodobnie za atakami na irański program jądrowy za pomocą robaka komputerowego Stuxnet.

Senate Unanimously Passes Uyghur Forced Labor Bill https://dailycaller.com/2021/12/16/senate-passes-uyghur-forced-labor-bill-marco-rubio/ After a series of false starts and delays, the Senate passed the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act by voice vote Thursday. The bill, sponsored by Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, targets slave labor in Xinjiang and surrounding provinces, where China is conducting a genocide of the Uyghur people. It passedthe House by voice vote Tuesday and is expected to be signed into law by President Joe Biden. The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act creates a “rebuttable presumption” that goods produced in Xinjiang or by certain listed Chinese business entities are produced by the forced labor of Uyghurs or other ethnic minorities. Companies may continue to import products from Xinjiang if they provide “clear and convincing evidence” to the Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection that their supply chains do not include forced labor. The bill's passage unlocks three votes to confirm Biden nominees to key State Department positions. Rubio and Democratic Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy agreed that the Republican would drop his objections to Nicholas Burns, nominated to be Ambassador to China, Ramin Toloui, nominated to be Assistant Secretary of State, and Rashad Hussain, nominated to be Ambassador for International Religious Freedom, in exchange for Murphy's lack of objection to the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act. Glenn Loury Says America is Not White Supremacist Play audio: 0:00-1:02 Why are people flocking here from all over the world? Because it's so oppressive and white supremacist? Supreme Court Sends Texas Heartbeat Law Back to Appeals Court A U.S. Supreme Court decision Thursday dealt another blow to the Texas abortion industry by sending its lawsuit against the state heartbeat law back to a federal appeals court that previously allowed the legislation to go into effect. The Associated Press reports the pro-abortion groups suing to overturn the pro-life law wanted the justices to send their lawsuit back to U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman, who blocked the law in October. On Thursday, however, Justice Neil Gorsuch signed an order sending the case to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals instead, according to the report. Back in October, the Fifth Circuit rejected Pitman's ruling just a few days after he issued it and allowed the law to go into effect again. Pro-life leaders estimate that the heartbeat law, which bans abortions once an unborn baby's heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy, has saved thousands of babies' lives since it went into effect Sept. 1. The law includes a unique private enforcement mechanism that allows private individuals to sue abortionists and those who “aid and abet” in abortions in violation of the law. It is this provision that has been the main focus of the legal dispute thus far. Earlier this month, the Supreme Court threw out a lawsuit from President Joe Biden and rejected the Texas pro-abortion groups' request to temporarily block the law while their legal challenge continues through the courts. While the high court ruled that the Texas abortion businesses may continue with their lawsuit, it also watered down their case by allowing them to sue state licensing officials but not the state judges and clerks who are charged with handling lawsuits spurred by the law. Now, the Supreme Court is sending the case back to the Fifth Circuit for consideration, and abortion activists are losing hope — good news for the future of unborn babies in Texas. “The Supreme Court left only a small sliver of our case intact, and it's clear that this part of the case will not block vigilante lawsuits from being filed,” Marc Hearron, a lawyer with the Center for Reproductive Rights, told the AP. “It's also clear that Texas is determined to stop the plaintiffs from getting any relief in even the sliver of the case that is left.” Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the University of California Berkeley School of Law, said he also was “stunned” that the Supreme Court allowed the law to remain in effect even though it violates Roe v. Wade. “The court's refusal to block the blatantly unconstitutional Texas law is also a strong signal that it is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade,” Chemerinsky wrote this week at the Los Angeles Times. Texas abortion businesses are admitting a likely defeat as well. They essentially have no way to stop Texas citizens and pro-life groups from filing lawsuits against them, abortionists and abortion center staff who help abort unborn babies in violation the law. And if the law remains in effect much longer, many Texas abortion businesses may close. According to the Texas Tribune: Amy Hagstrom Miller, president of Whole Woman's Health, which operates four clinics in Texas and is the lead plaintiff in the providers' lawsuit, warned last week that the current volume of services is not enough to keep clinics open in the long term. “Staying open is not sustainable if this ban stays in effect much longer,” Hagstrom Miller said. “We are grateful for the donors and foundations and folks who have been supporting us in the interim … but the future looks bleak if we can't get some justice here.” Ultimately, the abortion businesses' legal challenge appears to be “doomed,” the report concluded. And that's great news for unborn babies. A new study found that, in just the first month of the law, abortions in Texas went down 50 percent. Since then, Texas abortion facility directors have reported even bigger drops in their abortion numbers, as high as 80 percent compared to the previous year, according to the Texas Tribune. The heartbeat law has the potential to save tens of thousands of unborn babies from abortion every year. In 2020, about 54,000 unborn babies were aborted in Texas, and about 85 percent happened after six weeks of pregnancy, according to state health statistics. Remaining missionaries kidnapped in Haiti by gang released https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/remaining-missionaries-kidnapped-haiti-gang-released-rcna9010?fbclid=IwAR0acBi61sVy19OtPu-G_kaiJdEj84zWLnILglQvByTNWRW3jF6WHLgd1kw A Haitian gang has released the remaining 12 hostages they had abducted — more than two months after their kidnapping, the Ohio-based religious group they work with announced Thursday. "We glorify God for answered prayer—the remaining twelve hostages are FREE! Join us in praising God that all seventeen of our loved ones are now safe," said a statement from Christian Aid Ministries. "Thank you for your fervent prayers throughout the past two months. We hope to provide more information as we are able." Haiti National Police Spokesman Gary Desrosiers also confirmed to NBC News that the hostages had been found safe, but would not say where they had been taken. Seventeen people working with the group were kidnapped in October by the 400 Mawozo gang, which controls the Ganthier commune in the suburb of Port-au-Prince where the missionaries were taken. Christian Aid Ministries had previously said that those who were kidnapped were sixteen U.S citizens and one Canadian citizen — six men, six women, and five children. The missionaries were returning from an orphanage, an hour and a half from Christian Aid Ministries Haiti base and often visited by their staff, when they were taken. The group, based in Millersburg, Ohio, repeatedly called for supporters to fast and pray for the safe release of the hostages, at one point earlier this month encouraging Christians to fast for three days. In November, two of the missionaries were released, and another three were freed earlier this month Fight Laugh Feast Magazine DNB Our Fight Laugh Feast Magazine is a quarterly issue that packs a punch like a 21 year Balvenie, no ice.
