Why Deutsche Bundesbank had to promise to leave 1200 tons in New York

quote [ With big fanfare, Deutsche Bundesbank announced on February 9 that ahead of plan they had repatriated 300 tons of gold from New York. This put a positive spin on a rather disturbing fact ?1236 tons of gold that is supposed to be part of Germany?s currency reserve will continue to be kept outside of German control in New York - indefinitely. ]

No Time for a Negative Peace

quote [ The lesson from the failures of official opposition in South Africa is that institutional centrism can never effectively beat back the far right. ]

Few Democratic voters back Syria bombings. So why do so many Democrats in Congress?

Taibbi on the New Book That Brutalizes the Clinton Campaign

quote [ Shattered is sourced almost entirely to figures inside the Clinton campaign who were and are deeply loyal to Clinton. Yet those sources tell of a campaign that spent nearly two years paralyzed by simple existential questions: Why are we running? What do we stand for?

If you're wondering what might be the point of rehashing this now, the responsibility for opposing Donald Trump going forward still rests with the (mostly anonymous) voices described in this book. ]

Haven't read the book yet, on my to do list.

Trump Administration To Impose 20 Percent Tariff On Canadian Lumber

quote [ The Trump administration announced it will impose a 20 percent tariff on imported softwood lumber from Canada.

The dispute is not new ? the United States and Canada have sparred over imports of forest products for decades. But the action comes as the two nations prepare to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, which President Trump has harshly criticized. ]

Probably a diversion to draw attention from the Flynn/Russia investigation. Sorey.

If you want to take over the Democratic party ...the time is now!

quote [ The 2018 midterms are still 561 days away, but an unprecedented early surge of Democrats have already declared their candidacies for the House of Representatives, setting up what will likely be one of the longest and most crowded series of House Democratic primary campaigns in memory. ]

Time to put up or shut up. In my district it is the Governor's Chair that is at stake. In the house the Dems need to pick up 24 seats. The Senate looks out of reach.
