America´s largest city is facing
a monumental subway crisis

Yahoo! Finance, by Adriana Belmonte

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 9/12/2018 9:07:54 PM

Subway delays in the nation’s largest city cost up to $389 million in lost productivity each year, according to the Office of the New York City Comptroller in October 2017, and city officials are increasingly sounding the alarm. The problem has gotten worse since the comptroller data was collected in 2016. Naturally, transit dysfunction has become a central component of Thursday’s gubernatorial primary vote in the city. “Our subway system is the backbone of our economy,” New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer said in a statement to Yahoo Finance. “That means with every delay, there aren’t just lives affected

Put Jerry Brown on this crisis. He solved the critical mass transit issue between Fresno and Bakersfield with a high-speed bullet train which will be ready for use in only about 15 years and at only $1 billion per mile.

Surely such genius could solve New York City´s little subway problem.

NYC Subway aka "the Electric Sewer." Why? The government owns it and runs it. In a quote attributable to Ringo Star (of all people) "everything the government touches turns to (excrement)."

There´s No Reason to Delay
the Kavanaugh Vote Any Further
TownHall, by David Harsanyi    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 9/21/2018 9:09:10     Post Reply
"Guess who´s perpetuating all of these kinds of actions?" Sen. Mazie Hirono explained, boiling down the Senate Democrats´ position on Brett Kavanaugh. "It´s the men in this country. I just want to say to the men in this country, just shut up. And step up. Do the right thing for a change." Demanding an entire gender "just shut up" because it shares in a collective guilt borne of the actions perpetrated by a few people who share their biological features is a pretty ugly notion for anyone to be voicing, much less someone charged with defending the Constitution.

Household net worth climbs by $2.19 trillion,
driven by stock market, house prices
MarketWatch, by Steve Goldstein    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 9/20/2018 3:32:36     Post Reply
The numbers: Household and nonprofit net worth rose by $2.19 trillion in the second quarter, the Federal Reserve announced Thursday. That represents a seasonally adjusted annual rise of 2.1% to $106.93 trillion, driven in part by gains in the stock market as well as in the value of real estate. What happened: As the economic cycle grows older — and as the real estate sector bemoans a lack of available homes that has driven up house prices — household net worth continues to gain. It’s important to stress that the Fed report doesn’t represent the experience for the typical

Historic GOP win in state Senate race dampens
Democratic hopes for a ´blue wave´ in Texas
Dallas Morning News [TX], by Lauren McGaughy    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 9/20/2018 11:09:56     Post Reply
Shocking. Humiliating. Just plain not great. That´s how Democrats describe losing a long-held South Texas state Senate seat to upstart conservative Pete Flores on Tuesday night. The Republican win was historic, the first GOP victory there since just after the Civil War, but the implications stretch far beyond the district. (Snip) The Texas Democratic Party blamed Gov. Greg Abbott. By setting the special election in September — and not November, when statewide races will boost turnout — party officials say, Abbott purposely set them up for failure. "It´s very clear Gov. Abbott chose a special election day that would make

A key Republican senator pushed back Wednesday on calls by Brett Kavanaugh´s accuser to allow for an FBI investigation before a hearing next week, the latest indication that Republicans may be closing in on the votes to confirm President Donald Trump´s Supreme Court nominee if Christine Blasey Ford declines to testify. (Snip) The comments by Collins, who as one of the more moderate Republican senators is seen as a key vote on the nomination, are the latest sign that if Ford declines to testify, it could help Kavanaugh´s chances at winning confirmation to the Supreme Court. Already, key Republicans like

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) says that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the professor who came forward with a sexual assault accusation against Brett Kavanaugh, should not be "bullied" into testifying Monday in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee without an FBI investigation being performed. In an interview with CNN, the Democratic senator says that committee members are bullying Ford by calling for her testimony without the support of corroborating witnesses or an FBI investigation into the credibility of her claim. "I don´t think she should be bullied into this scenario, where it´s a ´he-said, she-said´ when many of the committee members

Washington - Hawaii Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono said Wednesday that there should be some attempt to corroborate an allegation of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh before the Senate Judiciary Committee hears from the woman who is accusing him. (Snip) Hirono told CNN "New Day" host Alisyn Camerota the committee is setting up a situation "where there is not even a modicum of fairness extended" to Ford without a proper FBI investigation into the incident. "I think we should all be focused on why the heck does she not want to come. She doesn´t want

GOP senator who called for Kavanaugh delay:

WASHINGTON – Two Republican senators who this week said they would be hesitant to proceed with a vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh until they had a chance to hear from a woman accusing him of sexual assault are strongly encouraging the accuser to appear at a scheduled hearing next week. Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., both called for a delay on Kavanaugh´s confirmation vote, which had been scheduled for Thursday, after Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford came forward publicly as Kavanaugh´s accuser in The Washington Post over the weekend.

Cynicism: Democrats Insist on Delaying
New Kavanaugh Hearing They Demanded,
After Sitting on Allegation for Months
TownHall, by Guy Benson    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 9/19/2018 3:45:18     Post Reply
As I´ve said many times over, I do not know whether Brett Kavanaugh´s accuser is acting in good or bad faith, nor does virtually anyone else. She could be lying. He could be lying. Or they could both be telling what they firmly believe to be the truth, based on an array of faulty, hazy or false memories. What matters now is how we assess the available evidence, of which there is precious little. Earlier, I laid out my own attempt at erecting some reasonable, if imperfect, metrics for doing just that.

6 possible Kavanaugh scenarios, including
a Supreme Court vacancy until 2021

Posted By: NorthernDog- 9/19/2018 11:07:59     Post Reply
An allegation of a sexual assault and a take-it-or-leave it offer to the accuser to testify ASAP have opened a new partisan divide and thrown the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, which had seemed to be on a glide path, into chaos. Whether a new hearing, tentatively planned for Monday, takes place and who testifies are very open questions at this point. Kavanaugh and California professor Christine Blasey Ford, who alleges that a drunken Kavanaugh physically and sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school, could both testify. Kavanaugh denies the allegation. Republicans have framed

WASHINGTON — The Latest on the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh (all times local):10:45 p.m. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley says there´s "no reason for any further delay" in a hearing about a sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Lawyers for accuser Christine Blasey Ford say she wants an FBI investigation of the incident before a Judiciary Committee hearing set for Monday. They say that in the days since Ford went public with her allegation, she has been the target of "vicious harassment and even death threats." Grassley says, "Nobody should be subject to

The New York Times made quite the mix-up in Tuesday´s print edition, mistaking Angela Bassett for Omarosa Manigault Newman in a caption on its coverage of Monday night´s Emmy Awards. The flub was in a long caption in the Arts section for a collection of Emmy photos, where Omarosa was misidentified in an image featuring "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" star Rachel Brosnahan accepting her prize for best actress in a comedy from presenters Tiffany Haddish and Angela Bassett. In a statement, the Times said it regretted the error, which it blamed on a photo wire service, and promised to issue

Sen. Ted Cruz finally got some good news in the Texas Senate race. The incumbent Republican holds a 9 percentage point edge over Democratic challenger Rep. Beto O´Rourke in his bid to hold on to his red-state seat, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday. Cruz gets support from 54 percent of likely voters, versus 45 percent for the upstart representative, the survey shows. Republicans had the sounded alarm after a series of polls showed a tighter race between Cruz and O´Rourke, a well-funded challenger who aims to become the first Democrat to represent Texas in the Senate

Since high school keg parties at the elite prep schools attended by Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey are now a matter of consuming interest to the Democrat-media complex, it is perhaps telling that the high school yearbooks of Holton Arms, the school attended by Blasey, have been scrubbed from the web. The blog Cult of the First Amendment says: On Monday Sept. 17th, Christine Blasey Ford’s high school yearbooks suddenly disappeared from the web. I read them days before, knew they would be scrubbed, and saved them.

Eviscerating Kavanaugh: Sen. Feinstein,

Watching the slow, public evisceration of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Senate Democrats —on the strength of one unsubstantiated charge of alleged sexual aggression 36 years ago when Kavanaugh was in high school — a question comes to mind: Have you no sense of decency, Sen. Feinstein? Decency was once an important feature of the Democratic Party’s story. Long before Bork became a verb, long before Clarence Thomas was dragged through the mud because a conservative black man proved a profound threat to Democrats, the party held fast to the notion of decency.

In an email to committee staffers obtained by CBS News, Ford´s lawyer Debra Katz wrote that Ford "wishes to testify, provided that we can agree on terms that are fair and which ensure her safety.

Christine Blasey Ford´s allegation that Brett Kavanaugh tried to force himself on her when they were teens has thrown his Supreme Court nomination into doubt. But as senators spar over the terms for a new hearing which may or may not happen, inconsistencies in the story have emerged that could embolden Kavanaugh´s defenders.

Giving Christine Blasey Ford the opportunity to testify about her unsubstantiated accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is, somehow, silencing her, Sen. Kristen Gillibrand (R-NY) declared Wednesday night. Refusing to launch an FBI investigation into Ford’s claims is also “silencing her,” Sen. Gillibrand said in a tweet: “Denying Dr. Ford an FBI investigation is silencing her. Forcing her into a sham hearing is silencing her. And pushing through Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation is silencing her.” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has offered Ford four options: A public hearing; A private hearing; A public staff interview;

Christine Blasey Ford´s legal team has asked the Senate Judiciary Committee to agree to certain terms before she sits down for a potential interview over her accusation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her decades ago, two sources told Fox News on Thursday night. Among the terms: Only members of the committee -- no lawyers -- can question her; Kavanaugh cannot be in the room at the time; and Kavanaugh should be questioned first, before he has the opportunity to hear Ford´s testimony. The requests, some of which appeared to be negotiable, capped a whirlwind

Snochia Moseley, 26, was at breaking point when she killed three people and herself in a shooting at a Rite Aid warehouse on Thursday, friends say. Moseley opened fire at her workplace at 9.06am, after arriving at the distribution facility in Enterprise Business Park. She shot outside the building, before continuing her rampage inside. Friend Toni Coley, who has known the woman since high school, told the Baltimore Sun Moseley often felt alienated, but she ´wasn’t a monster, wasn’t an angry person´. ´I just believe this was emotional distress. If she did this, it was her last straw,´ she said.

Paul (and Senator Orrin Hatch) has already mentioned the possibility that Dr. Ford’s allegation of sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh may be a case of mistaken identity, based in part on Ed Whelan’s cryptic tweets that Kavanaugh is going to be fully exonerated. This has set off of firestorm of rumors and expectations. Whalen has just now (6 pm eastern time) provided one specific scenario of this on Twitter, offering up a specific name (though careful to note that he makes no allegation of implication that the other person, Chris Garrett, assaulted Ford as claimed).
