~not like other girl scouts~ am i right

2020.09.06 04:05 phalangefan ~not like other girl scouts~ am i right

anybody here an older girl scout who hates girl scouts as an organization?? i want an girlscouts that isn’t a cesspool of middle aged mothers and posts from scouts that clearly got a ton of cookie sales and went to meaningless and often pricey girl scout events, the type of eschewed the contribution to their communities and development of strong women part in favor of earning patches; whose troops were run by affluent mothers who just wanted to occupy their kids. i want shitty girl scout memes that i can relate to because it’s a niche that‘s really easy to make fun of and i feel like there’s so many fucked up experiences girl scouts have both within troops and within the shitty organization,,,, anyone onboard?

2020.05.18 04:41 -Awesome333- I hate mint

I just saw this post about where the husband hates mint and chocolate combined, and I was going to comment mint sucks by itself, but I thought I would just make a post instead.
I don’t like mint flavor, mint toothpaste, or even chocolate mint. That does include Girl Scout cookies. I just don’t like it.
It taste awful, and I only tolerate mint toothpaste because I have to have good hygiene. Also I hate how 90% of toothpastes are mint flavor. I just don’t get why people like it.
I do find the mint + ice water meme funny though.
Edit: It was this post
Edit 2: I don’t like normal candy canes but I like the flavored ones.

2020.03.16 19:47 geckosanimelover How would the characters last in the current epidemic?

NOTE! THIS IS A JOKE! IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE IS SUFFERING FROM CORONAVIRUS, I WISH YOU A SPEEDY AND FULL RECOVERY!
Armin: poor boi isn't very strong to begin with, so he's determined to take every precaution so he doesn't get sick. Organizes a system with the food delivery people so he doesn't need to even go near them. Holes up in his room, lives on the internet for like a month. Probably starts writing his will too. Doesn't give Eren anything.
Mikasa: Braves costco and fights tooth and claw for the supplies she needs to take care of her friends. Also washes all her clothes profusely.
Eren: "I was born into this world. I can do what I want. It's my choice whether or not I get the virus." "Sir you're supposed to be on lockdown! Get back inside!" "DO NOT INTERFERE"
Floch: is an idiot like Eren, goes outside. Gets sick.
Jean: stays at home, probably frequently chats with all his friends to make sure they're okay. Works at home and grumbles about how easy things would be if he was allowed out. Around the first few days he gets antsy and starts pacing around like a tiger in a cage.
Sasha: One of those manics pillaging supermarkets. She needs EVERYTHING EDIBLE if she wants to survive.
Connie: One of those people who's always making memes about it until his mom starts coughing, then he's like a whole other person
Reiner: 'I welcome thee death' probably actually gets the coronavirus but the sheer amount of alcohol in his system kills it instantly so he's forced to suffer alive.
Pieck: is perfectly fine chilling around her house. Probably puts plastic gloves over her socks as well as hands.
Gabi & Falco: don't really understand what's going on, so they're just being 12 year olds, playing fortnite and minecraft, and enjoying having 3 weeks off from school.
Levi: everything. His house, his neighbor's house, everything NEEDS TO BE CLEAN. He vows to kill corona himself if the doctors don't find a cure in the next week. Everyone who enters his house needs a FULL BODY SANITIZATION BATH STAT!
Hange: makes people stew and talks about how this might have been a conspiracy theory. Also her house is probably a wreck from being contained there. She might go camping in the woods where there are no other people tbh
Historia: On like three work calls at once bc she's a busy powerful boss and has no time for this corona. Farmer-kun probably tried to bring her tea at one point and she glared at him. "Stress is bad for the baby, maybe you should take a break and take better care of yourself- " "Not gonna happen!"
Zeke: would try to get it and cough on children because he heard it can sterilize people. You do you, Zeke.
Annie: probably buys a trunk's worth of girl scout cookies and hangs out with her father eating trash and watching old karate movies. Or he acts like her drill sergeant and they get no time to relax. Either works
Bertolt: stays inside like a good person, but nervously stares out the window for extended periods of time. Makes neighbors worry.
Jaw Titan Ymir: makes memes about it to make light of the situation. Probably actually really scared, but she doesn't let it show.
Galliard: 'u dead yet reiner' 'leave me alone' 'darn it'
Ymir the Founder: also doesn't understand what's going on, but it mildly worried about it.
Yelena: probably brags about the stupidest things like 'well I was the first person in my district to show signs so HA'
Grisha: Actually tries to find a cure like the doctor he is
Pixis: drinks a bottle of rubbing alcohol thinking it will kill the disease, ends up in the hospital with no regrets

Winners are u/spacesoulboi and u/eatyrvegs !
🍪Hey fam! It's cookie season again! I've been trying to come up with a scavenger hunt type contest but am dying over here trying to come up with the items to scavenge. I've been procrastinating this contest bc I've been waiting for something good to theme it with. I can't wait forever, and neither should you (!) So here's my cookie contest smorgasbord.
🍪To Do: Pick a minimum of 2 things off this list to do and be entered to win one box of whatever flavor you'd like! Please Read All Rules at End to Avoid Diskoalafications

🍪-draw your fave girl scout cookie(s) as a cartoon character with a little blurb describing something about it's personality etc
🍪-handwrite or color your fave motivational quote that would encompass the girl scout/brownie codes
🍪-the Brownie mantra thang is to do good deeds without being told to, without seeking credit, and to help someone without their knowledge, like a magical brownie sprite cleaning your parents home and then not taking credit for it. Do a good deed or kindness for someone or the planet, get PROOF IN PIC FORM somehow, and post it. It is too easy to claim you have done A Thing without actually having done The Thing so show us The Thing!
🍪-write a poem about your fave cookie and what it means to you
🍪-tell us about your own scout experience if you participated in any scout related groups
🍪-record an original song about girl scout cookies using voice recordedrive or YouTube
🍪-make me some ORIGINAL dank cookie/ gscout memes (I will check if they are new/ original so no stealing from the internet lol)
🍪-summon a friend and give them a compliment
🍪-summon a stranger, peep their profile, and give them a personalized pick me up.🎵 Make new friends, but keep the old/ one is silver and the other is gold/ a circle is round/ it has no end/ that's how long I want to be your friend! 🎵

🍪Rules- If you do two of them you got an entry. If you do many of them or all of them then you will get extra brownie points! There will be a minimum of 2 winners!
🍪Dbadoodie

🍪You must be willing to send your shipping info if you are chosen to win so I can send these babies your way.
🍪If I take a peep at your profile and you do not have an intro or are not active in anything other than just contest comments then you will be disqualified. I always check. You must have gifted within the the last 4-6ish months. There are many ways to contribute to the sub (daily/nightly chat, activities, hosting giveaways, gifting) and it's a bummetime killer to do a contest and then you can't choose like the first five people you randomize because they aren't an active member. Don't make me cry. I will eat all the cookies to drown my sorrows!
🍪Giveaway ends next Thursday, Feb the 6th, at around 12pm.

Yes I would love to spread awareness of their disgusting and predatory practices. Thanks for asking. JWs have to report field service time every month. One way they do it (especially if elderly or during inclement weather) a group get together. They read the obituaries and look up the survivors’ addresses. Then they send the survivors a form letter and a tract.
I was forced to join one of these letter writing parties. I went through the motions of writing the distasteful letters but never mailed them. Some n my congregation also hung out at cemeteries and approached visitors with their magazines or tracts.

I didn't even have to take my clothes off when they came to my door. I don't know if it's a coincidence, but they asked me "Do you believe the bible is relevant for today," (no greeting, no introduction.) I said "Which Bible?" They said "Any bible." I said, "The real Bible is still relevant for today but not the bastardized version Jehovah's Witnesses use to control their members." And they literally gasped and left. It kind of confused me, because I was calm and while that's not a very nice response, it's not like I was naked or Satanic or something. I don't know, maybe they were just super sensitive?

The last time the JWs showed up was the day my new puppy went to her first obedience class. It had been muddy, so she'd gone straight into the tub for a rinse. We'd just finished when the JWs knocked.
When an untrained cocker spaniel meets new people, there's only one thing that's going to happen: she popped right up for head scritches and left wet pawprints on their knees. That was over 20 years ago and they haven't been back.

It's worth also learning what your city laws are for door to door soliciting.
In my city, all salesman are legally required to have a permit and badge. They are also legally required to honor no soliciting signs. If I ever open the door for a solicitor I ask "please show me your solicitation permit." Usually they'll turn around and walk away immediately as they rarely have one. This can result in hefty fines if their business is reported. And will result in a loss of their permit if they have one and ignore no soliciting signs.

Haven't seen a JW in a long time, knock on wood. Back when I was young and naive I made the mistake of letting one in once and trying to reason with her. She hounded me for weeks after. Lesson learned. These days it is mostly people trying to sell me aluminum siding or lawn chemicals or other bullshit I don't need.

I've never had that either. What kind of neighborhood do you live in? I think they tend to not serve anything other than suburbs door-to-door. If it looks even remotely sketch(broken down cars, chainlink fencing with boards in some places, wood that doesn't look taken care of) they will tend to avoid those places.

We had Jehovah's witnesses come knocking on our door on CHRISTMAS FRICKING EVE at ungodly hours, and they kept ringing our door bell for like 15 minutes, waking our dog up who started barking at them, finally turning them away.

This is typical JW behavior, at least from my own experience. They have no boundaries or manners. They have no social skills and do not respect anyone’s privacy. My husband sees nothing wrong with bothering people while they’re shopping or filling their cars with gas. Yet he gets angry when we go to Sam’s club and are approached by the home improvement, wireless and solar sales people. We’ve gone on walks in our neighborhood and he approaches people with personal questions, then launches into his JW spiel. It’s cringey. I don’t want my neighbors to think I’m a JW.
We have to take back our power. Because they have no manners we have to be the ones to end the conversations and tell them to not come back. Sometimes we have to threaten them with calling the police. We would do it for other salespeople. We have to do it with them else they will keep returning. Do not let them have their self perceived exalted status.

I totally understand their sense of urgency. I was raised very religious so that I understand.
What really gets me is ministering to people like that isn't about the person they (not only JW's there are other denominations that can get pretty aggressive) are trying to save from hell. It ends up being about them and that's the part that really bothers me.
In the situation in my driveway, it wasn't about my comfort, the fact that I was being asked very invasive questions in front of my kids and they weren't being respectful to me. What if it were true? What if I was disfellowshiped over something really horrible? Do you honestly think I would feel comfortable discussing that in front of young children? In that moment, me being 'saved' by them wasn't their priority. The priority was them and how THEY are doing gods work. In that respect, being so pushy about it is ultimately selfish. And even though I don't go to church, it doesn't mean I am not going to be a bad example to my kids and tell a couple of church people to fuck off, and it always seems like that's what they are goading me into doing which feels so wrong. Like 'we're just trying to save her, and she is persecuting us because of our Faith'. Yes, Jesus said to minister to the world. He did not say be pushy then claim victim when people tell you to stop.

I helped my little sister sell cookies, and we went door to door in the big city about ten years ago, so it really depends on the troop.

So many reasons! I knew I should have left the moment I started having doubts, but at the time, my boyfriend who I was secretly dating, said that not all congregations were like the one I was in and things would be different once we were married.
I was taught about their shunning policy before I was supposed to learn about it. When I asked about whether or not they shun, I was initially told that they don’t. I was pressured to shun my never JW kids, especially because they were serving in the military.
I learned about case study 29 of the Australian Royal Commission. The Jehovah’s Witnesses covered up thousands of pedophilia cases. They have a Two Witness Rule that elders follow in their “secret” elders handbook, Shepherd the Flock of God that enables them to cover up child sexual abuse. They have punished those who’ve reported the assaults to the police. Rape victims have been disfellowshipped for “pornea.”
This is just a few of the many things that are wrong with this high control religion. If you’re curious check out JWFACTS.com or exjw.

i think it depends on where you are. about 5-10 years ago, girl scouts (and other kids selling things, usually sally foster or the cookie dough) went door to door, usually supervised sometimes not. somewhere along the way parents decided doing that was too dangerous and now set up shop outside stores

I’m so sorry. I’m a former Jehovah’s Witness and my congregation pressured us to knock on doors during holidays because it was the best chance of finding people home. Then they reveled in their persecution complex because (surprise surprise) no one wanted to be bothered. Personally I thought it was disgusting and rude but I had to go along else I’d be marked.

My boyfriend is a bit of a scruffy looking guy, long curly hair, beard, etc. One time when some Jehovah's Witnesses came by, he answered the door in nothing but his boxers. They legit didn't come back for a few years, I think he scared them.
My dad had one of those evolution fish bumper stickers on his car in the driveway. That deterred some too, and if it didn't, he just politely pointed it out to them and sent them away.

There used to be this pair of JW's (older lady and younger-ish guy) that would show up at my house every single week. She was super nice but I had told her basically from the get go that I had experienced a tremendous amount of church hurt(non LDS church but whatever), that my faith was my own for the time being, and was not interested in returning to organized religion anytime soon and that I needed some space. She did not take the hint.
A few more months of this lady showing up at random times of the day and I get really frustrated so I looked up the JW term for being ostracized so that she would leave me alone and the next time she showed up at my house I told her I was disfellowshiped and again that I was not interested.
A couple days later, she and this new guy who apparently was some higher up in the church show up at my house and corner me in my driveway. This guy pulls a little notepad out of his pocket and a pen (no joke the same kind you see cops pull from a pocket in detective movie) and start grilling me about my supposed disfellowship, what church, who was involved, what happened, when was this, where was this, I mean, this was in front of my kids who are really little. I was completely taken aback. I had to find the kindest way to politely tell them to buzz off and not to bother us again.
I get the sense of urgency with them that you don't want someone to go to hell, but at what point do you look at yourself and maybe say 'im not respecting this person's privacy or wishes' and maybe leave them alone? I feel bad for being forced to lie to them. That certainly doesn't feel good, but I'm also angry that they tried to grill me in front of my kids.
I haven't seen anyone in quite a while so I'm assuming they just put a Scarlet letter on my house and moved on.

I spent over a year conversing with a JW when I was a fundamentalist Christian. My husband and I invited her in (she was always with someone, but never the same person twice.) I was naive and just coming at things from a point of what the original Ancient Hebrew and Septuagint verses really meant, and eventually she had someone visiting who was high up in their organization and I still out-debated him from a biblical perspective. I did 4 years at a Christian university, studying the Bible in depth with really knowledgable professors.
I was like, the most nerdy, obsessive, overly educated Bible geek.
But what I got out of it when it was all said and done, was that this woman loved her father more than anything else in her life. He was a great dad, an inspiration, someone who made her who she was, yet she had to cut him out of her life because he wasn't a JW. She hurt for him every day and was in pain, and cried when she talked about him, but used that to prove her point that you have to sacrifice to do Jehovah's will. It really made me wonder why anyone would want to be a part of an organization that causes families that kind of pain. It's unbiblical and unhealthy.

I gave them a reasoned argument once for why it's wrong to attempt to predict the hour or the day and they looked at me like I had grown seven heads. Wasn't nasty about it or anything. Slamming the door in their face or telling them you're Catholic/a satanist (much of a muchness in a lot of their eyes) may be satisfying in the moment but a worldly person with a biblically sourced opinion can be a bit harder to shake off if they're wavering. It probably made zero difference and they've 90% gone over to the carts here now, but honestly I felt better about the whole thing afterwards. The cart people don't approach me, the local Kingdom Hall must not have a wheelchair ramp or something.
Seriously though, people need to start seeing it for what it is - a high control death cult. They may be a door-knocking meme to most but they're mainly victims of a horrendous organisation that is literally celebrating the deaths of children. I'd rather have the double glazing lads try to sell me shit three times a week than they continue to peddle their apocalyptic nonsense and I already have double glazing. I wish shouting at them worked, I'm argumentative as they come, but it just feeds the persecution complex. I wish they'd all give up when it's obvious whatever ridiculous extension they've given their end of the world predictions is proven wrong, but a large number will just swallow whatever the governing body tells them. I wish everyone knew what they think will happen to those of us with the wrong beliefs when Jesus returns, but they don't mention the burning painful death upfront. Seriously fuck the people at the top who indoctrinated the rest knowing all the ill they were doing to the world. Fuck them sideways.

I was just thinking about this the other day as a potential response to someone messaging me and trying to sell me something. I would tell them I find it completely inappropriate for door-to-door sellers these days as they are coming to my house, my private and personal space and it feels very intrusive, especially as a female so I don’t even answer the door if I can help it. I’m not going to answer to ppl using my personal social media to sell me crap either.
Edit: omg 2 minutes after I wrote this, I saw a man walking up to my door and said, “oh sh!t” thinking it was a salesman...luckily it was just the amazon delivery guy...got me paranoid now! 🤣

Not sure if you might be in therapy at all from the brainwashing but I wish you luck in life!
I briefly met an ex-JW while getting mental treatment and it broke my heart that she was basically exiled from everything she knew because she wanted to divorce her abusive husband. She had nothing and was demonized to her kids and everybody she knew, because she didn't know anybody who wasn't a JW. It was why she attempted suicide in the first place, and it took her a while to feel "free" because she missed her kids so much. It was so cruel, I don't know how a "good" person could treat somebody that way. :(

I'm sure the Org thanks him. The reason JW's go to your door isn't to recruit your boyfriend, it's to prove to the JW's that non-believers are controlled by Satan. Now they can go back to their safe Kingdom Hall and be grateful to be with safe, good people. It's a control tactic cults use to keep their people in.

As a former Jehovah’s Witness I can attest to this. I was in field service with a car group, and when I pointed out a “no soliciting” sign at an apartment complex, the elder in charge of us told us to ignore it because we weren’t selling anything. We were “saving lives.”
Even after a manager told us to leave, the elder had us split up and told us to sneak into the buildings. Management threatened us with the police after that. We stopped but the elder said he knew Jehovah was smiling down on us for the persecution we were experiencing.
They also made us knock on doors during holidays. Don’t get me started on the letter writing parties to survivors found in obituaries.

I used to get Jehovah's Witnesses by the house once or twice every week. I had a no soliciting sign, SUPER annoying since about half the time they were waking me up after I had just gone to bed (I basically work 3rd shift). I would answer in boxers all the time, made no nevermind to them.
I got absolutely sick of it, warned them I was going to start not bothering to throw on clothes when I answered the door. Next time they showed up, I answered completely starkers. They didn't bother me for months. They came back again after they forgot about it, I answered in my birthday suit again.
I haven't had them knock on my door again in almost 9 years now.

On the roster: Why civics education matters – House readies resolution to end national emergency – Harris calls for new election in NC House race – Biden considers his family ahead of 2020 decision – Girl scout of the year
WHY CIVICS EDUCATION MATTERS
You no doubt heard the news. Americans don’t know bupkis about our history and system of government.
The survey from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation found appallingly low percentages of Americans were conversant even in the basic facts of our system and past.
In order to pass a U.S. citizenship test, an applicant must get at least 60 percent of the questions on a civics and history test correct. You can take a sample test here but knowing you, dear readers, 60 percent will seem like a rock-bottom grade.
If you have been reading us for any length of time you will also know that civics and history education is something of a hobbyhorse for us, so we were certainly happy to see attention brought to the subject. What concerns us, however, is that very few people seem to be discussing _why_this is a problem.
Knowing civics and history isn’t something that is an abstract good like knowing how to play the clarinet, hit a one-handed backhand or tell the difference between Monet and Manet. It is a practical, vital knowledge the lack of which is creating a crisis for our country.
Civics education, where it still exists, is treated often as something obligatory. You make your bed, you shine your shoes for church, you say “please” and you know how many justices are on the Supreme Court.
If we expect students to care and schools to emphasize the subject, we had better make sure that everyone understands what’s at stake. Without a working knowledge of what this country is and how our system works, each generation becomes less able to operate this miracle that has proven to be a light into the world.
The most significant problems facing our government today aren’t really ideological, they’re systemic.
For example, there are good debates to be had about how the federal government should allocate the nearly $3.5 trillion in tax revue it collects each year. Where should it be spent and in what increments? How much more money should the government borrow?
But politicians have essentially destroyed the system that allowed those questions to be addressed for the previous two centuries. Most of the money that’s being spent is doled out on schedules and rates set decades ago.
Less than a third of federal spending is actually appropriated by the current Congress. The other 70 percent goes to entitlement programs, pensions, pre-programed welfare systems and interest on the $22 trillion national debt. It’s that way because previous generations of lawmakers determined they and their successors were too irresponsible to allocate money anymore.
While most federal outlays cruise on like a deep space probe zooming out past Pluto, what obviously will happen to the discussion over the ever-shrinking slice that Congress really does control? When there was plenty of money, the appropriations system allowed for an orderly, if greasy, means for allocating the money. Now, every time the bills come due at the end of the federal fiscal year, we start jumping off of fiscal cliffs.
We recently endured what was called the “Seinfeld shutdown,” the shutdown about nothing. Lawmakers and the president were at odds over a little flyspeck of spending – four hundredths of a percent of the deficit alone – and closed a substantial part of the government for more than a month only to come to what was an obvious compromise from the start.
However you feel about border barriers and “delayed action for childhood arrivals” and anything else about immigration, that’s not a sensible way to have discussions about spending priorities. That’s not liberal or conservative, Republican or Democratic but rather systemic. The way the U.S. government handles its money is a rotten, chaotic mess.
But there’s little political advantage to be had in addressing that. In fact, there’s substantial political disadvantage.
Listen to the president and his potential general election opponents as they talk about money. They sound like 1970s pornographic actress and disco star Andrea True. “How do you like it? More, more, more.” More tax cuts, more infrastructure spending, more entitlements, more welfare programs. More, more, more.
Spending is just one example. We could say the same of our legal, educational, medical and national security apparatuses. Deep problems continue to churn, but politicians across the spectrum tend to offer painless pabulum.

Now, we should rightly blame the politicians who pander and deceive. But as the scorpion told the frog, we know it is their nature. As comedian Chris Rock once joked about sexual fidelity, “Men are only as faithful as their options.” A dim, if not entirely undeserved view. For politicians, the maxim would hold that they are only about as honest as they have to be.
And voters are letting them get away with murder.
We will not reinvent human nature in such a way that a new generation of selfless politicians rises up to save us from ourselves. But that is what Americans look for each successive election. What do we want each cycle? Change. And each cycle they deliver the kind of surficial change that temporarily gratifies the bloody-minded partisanship of one side but leaves most people with a deeper-still feeling of unease. Something is wrong, but we just can’t say what.
So what will we choose next time? Why change, of course.
The purpose of an educated electorate – the crucial aim of Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and others – was as the ultimate guarantor of good government. If the people do not know what they have, they won’t know how to use it. They won’t know which demands are sensible to make. They will become easy prey for demagogues.
Welp.
The urgent work of educating the next generation in American history and civics isn’t just something that would be nice or to avoid national embarrassment. It is actually about rebuilding a bulwark against tyranny. As our government slips deeper and deeper into dysfunction and people come to have less and less faith in the American system, we become sitting ducks for the kind of authoritarianism that has ruled most of our species for most of our history.
Civic classes are about nothing less than guaranteeing “the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”
THE RULEBOOK: HOLD YOUR GROUND
“Whatever efficacy the union may have had in ordinary cases, it appears that the moment a cause of difference sprang up, capable of trying its strength, it failed.” – Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, Federalist No. 19TIME OUT: THE PRICE OF COLLEGE SPORTS
Sports Illustrated: “UNC-Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium is typically a showcase for everything that’s great about sports… But the story was [Zion Williamson’s injury]. He’s the presumptive No. 1 pick in the NBA draft, and one of the biggest names in sports at the moment. … What happens when the biggest game in America becomes dominated by the player who left after 30 seconds? For one, after 48 hours of news stories about Duke-UNC ticket prices, there were natural conclusions drawn about the injustice of Zion performing as an unpaid amateur and suffering an injury while almost everyone else in the college sports ecosystem was able to get rich off the game. That argument makes some sense. … And why does Zion Williamson have to be in college at all? … If players are talented enough to be drafted into the NBA after high school, many around the sport think they should be able to make that transition as soon as they graduate.”

HOUSE READIES RESOLUTION TO END NATIONAL EMERGENCY
WaPo: “Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday night that the House will vote in the coming days on a resolution rejecting President Trump’s national emergency declaration, encouraging fellow Democrats to support the effort as they try to stop Trump’s push to expand efforts to build a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border. In a ‘Dear Colleague’ letter, the California Democrat said Trump’s declaration ‘undermines the separation of powers and Congress’s power of the purse, a power exclusively reserved by the text of the Constitution to the first branch of government, the Legislative branch, a branch co-equal to the Executive.’ By invoking a national emergency, Trump is claiming authority to shift federal funds appropriated by Congress for other purposes to be spent instead on his border wall. Pelosi announced that the House would move ‘swiftly’ to pass a disapproval resolution authored by Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Tex.), although she did not specify an exact date and indicated it would move through a House committee before coming to the floor.”
Sen. Collins backs lawsuit against national emergency –Portland Press Herald: “Republican Sen. Susan Collins said Wednesday that she supports the lawsuit filed by 16 states – including Maine – challenging President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to build a southern border wall. But Collins also signaled support for a straightforward congressional disapproval of an emergency declaration that she views as having ‘dubious constitutionality’ and setting a dangerous precedent. ‘It may be that the courts will stop what I believe to be a very unwise action, or it may come about through Congress,’ Collins said Wednesday. ‘If the House passes a resolution of disapproval and it is a clean resolution, I will support that.’ … The three other members of Maine’s congressional delegation – independent Sen. Angus King and Democratic Reps. Chellie Pingree and Jared Golden – also have strongly criticized the president’s emergency declaration.”
The Judge’s Ruling: Trump’s brazen overreach – This week Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano explains how the president’s national emergency is unconstitutional: “When the president acts pursuant to authority granted to him by the Congress in an area of government delegated to him by the Constitution, his authority is at its peak, and he is free to exercise it as he sees fit. When he acts in an area as to which the Congress has been silent, he acts in a twilight zone and can succeed only if the area of his behavior is delegated to him under the Constitution and if he enjoys broad public support. But when the president acts in an area that the Constitution gives exclusively to Congress — such as spending money — and when he acts in defiance of Congress, his acts are unconstitutional and are to be enjoined.” More here.
HARRIS CALLS FOR NEW ELECTION IN NC HOUSE RACE
Raleigh News & Observer: “In a startling statement, Republican candidate Mark Harris Thursday called for a new election in the 9th Congressional District ‘to restore the confidence of voters.’ Harris’ statement came after a break in a hearing after he had testified about his dealings with Bladen County operative McCrae Dowless. On the stand, Harris said he suffered two strokes in January while hospitalized for a severe infection and was ‘struggling’ to get through the hearing. After hearing the evidence of absentee ballot fraud, Harris said, ‘I believe a new election should be called.’ A member of North Carolina’s State Board of Elections had pressed Harris on why he didn’t heed warnings from his son about hiring Dowless to run an absentee ballot operation in his 2018 campaign for Congress. … ‘He raised concerns (about Dowless). I did not consider John’s (emails) to be a warning. I thought he was overreacting,’ [Harris said].”
BIDEN CONSIDERS HIS FAMILY AHEAD OF 2020 DECISION
NBC News:Joe Biden wants to be president. And each day, he’s closer to being ready to run for the office. But even as he weighs a campaign to unseat President Donald Trump, Biden is carefully considering a key question — what happens when the president or his top allies try to make his family an issue? Conversations with aides to the former vice president and others who’ve spoken with him in recent weeks present the idea of a Biden candidacy as not if but when. … But Biden knows and expects the president to fight as hard to stay in the White House as he did to win it in the first place — and he’s already shown nothing is off limits. … No line of attack would be more reprehensible to the former vice president than one directed at his family, and he and his team have been forced to consider that even as they also weigh the political dynamics.”
Harris swipes at far-left Dems over open borders –Fox News: “Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris said ‘We can’t have open borders’ as she continues to disassociate from her party’s calls for unrestricted immigration and tearing down existing barriers at the U.S.-Mexico border. The U.S. senator from California, a leading 2020 hopeful for the White House on the Democratic side, has recently been overshadowed by the entry of Senate colleague Bernie Sanders — the progressives’ likely first choice — into the race, and the potential candidacy of Beto O’Rourke the former congressman from Texas who’s been making inroads and positioning himself as the anti-Trump candidate. This prompted Harris to come out against O’Rourke’s call to tear down the existing 700 miles of fencing on the U.S.-Mexico border during a Wednesday night appearance on Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show.’”
Family matters: Kamala’s dad isn’t happy over her comments on weed –Fox News: “The father of Sen. Kamala Harris is trying to distance himself from the 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful after she said her pot smoking in college stemmed from her Jamaican heritage. … Harris’ father, Donald, disapproved of the comments, which he told the Jamaica Global Online constituted ‘identity politics.’ ‘My dear departed grandmothers … as well as my deceased parents, must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics,’ he said. Donald Harris continued: ‘Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty.’”
Williamson: ‘One last grift for Bernie Sanders’ – National Review: “Right-wing populists and left-wing populists may disagree about such world-changing issues as whether the phrase ‘a man with ovaries’ actually means anything, but on the fundamental policy questions they come down strikingly close to one another. That is because the enemy of populism isn’t the right wing or the left wing — the enemy of populism is liberalism, understood here not in the demented sense we use it in U.S. politics (where liberals_ are the people opposed to_ liberalism) but in its proper sense, meaning the classical-liberal regime of property rights, free enterprise, free trade, individual rights, and a worldview based on well-ordered liberty emphasizing cooperation within and between nations.”
Disinformation cyber campaign begins against Dems –Politico: “A wide-ranging disinformation campaign aimed at Democratic 2020 candidates is already underway on social media, with signs that foreign state actors are driving at least some of the activity. The main targets appear to be Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas), four of the most prominent announced or prospective candidates for president. A POLITICO review of recent data extracted from Twitter and from other platforms … suggests that the goal of the coordinated barrage appears to be undermining the nascent candidacies through the dissemination of memes, hashtags, misinformation and distortions of their positions. But the divisive nature of many of the posts also hints at a broader effort to sow discord and chaos within the Democratic presidential primary. The cyber propaganda … is being pushed across a variety of platforms…”
POMPEO RULES OUT ON KANSAS SENATE RUN
Politico: “Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday that he has ruled out running for a soon-to-be-vacant Senate seat in his home state of Kansas next year in favor of remaining the nation’s top diplomat. The former Kansas congressman and CIA director had dodged questions about whether he planned on running in 2020 to claim the seat held by retiring GOP Sen. Pat Roberts, fueling speculation that he might by attending certain events and meeting with GOP operatives in the state. But on NBC’s ‘Today’ show on Thursday, the secretary of state threw cold water on the prospect, telling anchor Craig Melvin ‘it’s ruled out.’ ‘I love Kansas. I’m going to be the secretary of State as long as President Trump gives me the opportunity to serve as America’s senior diplomat,” Pompeo said. ‘I love doing what I’m doing and I have 75,000 great warriors out and around the world trying to deliver for the American people.’”
Poll: Joni Ernst’s approval rating soars ahead of 2020 re-election –Des Moines Register: “U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst’s approval rating has hit its highest point ever as she prepares for a 2020 re-election campaign, a new Des Moines RegisteMediacom Iowa Poll shows. Fifty-seven percent of Iowans say they approve of the job she’s doing — a 10 percentage-point increase since September. She earns approval from a majority of Iowans in each of the state’s four congressional districts. That includes a high of 65 percent in the Republican-heavy 4th District, in northwest and north central Iowa, and a low of 51 percent in the Democratic-leaning 2nd District, in southeast Iowa. … Ernst, a military veteran from Red Oak, became the first woman in Iowa elected to either chamber of Congress in 2014. … She announced in December that she intends to seek re-election.”
Alabama Rep. Bradley Byrne announces 2020 Senate run –AL.com: “U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne became the first official Republican entrant into the 2020 U.S. Senate race announcing his intention to run in a race that could become one of the most expensive political contests in Alabama history. … Democratic U.S. Senator Doug Jones, who narrowly defeated Republican Roy Moore in that election, raised more than $24 million. … Byrne said he anticipates, similar to the 2017 special election, national attention paid to the Alabama Senate contest next year. The race is considered one of the few 2020 Senate contests in which a Democratic officeholder is seeking re-election against a Republican inside a state that has long been dominated by GOP leadership.”

GIRL SCOUT OF THE YEAR
WISN:) “As if any of us needed any more of an incentive to buy even more boxes of Girl Scout cookies, a fifth-grade marketing genius just reinvented her Samoas packaging in the best way possible. The Colorado-based ‘Cookie CEO’ Charlotte Holmberg — who earned the title after selling more than 2,000 boxes in 2018 — is upping her game in a major way in the new year. Turning her Samoas into Momoas, the elementary schooler redesigned her packaging to include a shirtless Jason Momoa, and unsurprisingly, they’re flying off the figurative shelves. Holmberg happened to have a marketing professional already on her sales team — her mom — and after spotting a few Momoa Samoa memes, she thought up the rebranding. The pair printed a shot of the ‘Aquaman’ star on the classic purple packaging, and suddenly, everyone was eager for a box.”

On the roster: Why civics education matters – House readies resolution to end national emergency – Harris calls for new election in NC House race – Biden considers his family ahead of 2020 decision – Girl scout of the year
WHY CIVICS EDUCATION MATTERS
You no doubt heard the news. Americans don’t know bupkis about our history and system of government.
The survey from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation found appallingly low percentages of Americans were conversant even in the basic facts of our system and past.
In order to pass a U.S. citizenship test, an applicant must get at least 60 percent of the questions on a civics and history test correct. You can take a sample test here but knowing you, dear readers, 60 percent will seem like a rock-bottom grade.
If you have been reading us for any length of time you will also know that civics and history education is something of a hobbyhorse for us, so we were certainly happy to see attention brought to the subject. What concerns us, however, is that very few people seem to be discussing _why_this is a problem.
Knowing civics and history isn’t something that is an abstract good like knowing how to play the clarinet, hit a one-handed backhand or tell the difference between Monet and Manet. It is a practical, vital knowledge the lack of which is creating a crisis for our country.
Civics education, where it still exists, is treated often as something obligatory. You make your bed, you shine your shoes for church, you say “please” and you know how many justices are on the Supreme Court.
If we expect students to care and schools to emphasize the subject, we had better make sure that everyone understands what’s at stake. Without a working knowledge of what this country is and how our system works, each generation becomes less able to operate this miracle that has proven to be a light into the world.
The most significant problems facing our government today aren’t really ideological, they’re systemic.
For example, there are good debates to be had about how the federal government should allocate the nearly $3.5 trillion in tax revue it collects each year. Where should it be spent and in what increments? How much more money should the government borrow?
But politicians have essentially destroyed the system that allowed those questions to be addressed for the previous two centuries. Most of the money that’s being spent is doled out on schedules and rates set decades ago.
Less than a third of federal spending is actually appropriated by the current Congress. The other 70 percent goes to entitlement programs, pensions, pre-programed welfare systems and interest on the $22 trillion national debt. It’s that way because previous generations of lawmakers determined they and their successors were too irresponsible to allocate money anymore.
While most federal outlays cruise on like a deep space probe zooming out past Pluto, what obviously will happen to the discussion over the ever-shrinking slice that Congress really does control? When there was plenty of money, the appropriations system allowed for an orderly, if greasy, means for allocating the money. Now, every time the bills come due at the end of the federal fiscal year, we start jumping off of fiscal cliffs.
We recently endured what was called the “Seinfeld shutdown,” the shutdown about nothing. Lawmakers and the president were at odds over a little flyspeck of spending – four hundredths of a percent of the deficit alone – and closed a substantial part of the government for more than a month only to come to what was an obvious compromise from the start.
However you feel about border barriers and “delayed action for childhood arrivals” and anything else about immigration, that’s not a sensible way to have discussions about spending priorities. That’s not liberal or conservative, Republican or Democratic but rather systemic. The way the U.S. government handles its money is a rotten, chaotic mess.
But there’s little political advantage to be had in addressing that. In fact, there’s substantial political disadvantage.
Listen to the president and his potential general election opponents as they talk about money. They sound like 1970s pornographic actress and disco star Andrea True. “How do you like it? More, more, more.” More tax cuts, more infrastructure spending, more entitlements, more welfare programs. More, more, more.
Spending is just one example. We could say the same of our legal, educational, medical and national security apparatuses. Deep problems continue to churn, but politicians across the spectrum tend to offer painless pabulum.

Now, we should rightly blame the politicians who pander and deceive. But as the scorpion told the frog, we know it is their nature. As comedian Chris Rock once joked about sexual fidelity, “Men are only as faithful as their options.” A dim, if not entirely undeserved view. For politicians, the maxim would hold that they are only about as honest as they have to be.
And voters are letting them get away with murder.
We will not reinvent human nature in such a way that a new generation of selfless politicians rises up to save us from ourselves. But that is what Americans look for each successive election. What do we want each cycle? Change. And each cycle they deliver the kind of surficial change that temporarily gratifies the bloody-minded partisanship of one side but leaves most people with a deeper-still feeling of unease. Something is wrong, but we just can’t say what.
So what will we choose next time? Why change, of course.
The purpose of an educated electorate – the crucial aim of Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and others – was as the ultimate guarantor of good government. If the people do not know what they have, they won’t know how to use it. They won’t know which demands are sensible to make. They will become easy prey for demagogues.
Welp.
The urgent work of educating the next generation in American history and civics isn’t just something that would be nice or to avoid national embarrassment. It is actually about rebuilding a bulwark against tyranny. As our government slips deeper and deeper into dysfunction and people come to have less and less faith in the American system, we become sitting ducks for the kind of authoritarianism that has ruled most of our species for most of our history.
Civic classes are about nothing less than guaranteeing “the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”
THE RULEBOOK: HOLD YOUR GROUND
“Whatever efficacy the union may have had in ordinary cases, it appears that the moment a cause of difference sprang up, capable of trying its strength, it failed.” – Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, Federalist No. 19TIME OUT: THE PRICE OF COLLEGE SPORTS
Sports Illustrated: “UNC-Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium is typically a showcase for everything that’s great about sports… But the story was [Zion Williamson’s injury]. He’s the presumptive No. 1 pick in the NBA draft, and one of the biggest names in sports at the moment. … What happens when the biggest game in America becomes dominated by the player who left after 30 seconds? For one, after 48 hours of news stories about Duke-UNC ticket prices, there were natural conclusions drawn about the injustice of Zion performing as an unpaid amateur and suffering an injury while almost everyone else in the college sports ecosystem was able to get rich off the game. That argument makes some sense. … And why does Zion Williamson have to be in college at all? … If players are talented enough to be drafted into the NBA after high school, many around the sport think they should be able to make that transition as soon as they graduate.”

After hearing the evidence of absentee ballot fraud, Harris said, ‘I believe a new election should be called.’ A member of North Carolina’s State Board of Elections had pressed Harris on why he didn’t heed warnings from his son about hiring Dowless to run an absentee ballot operation in his 2018 campaign for Congress. … ‘He raised concerns (about Dowless).

The race is considered one of the few 2020 Senate contests in which a Democratic officeholder is seeking re-election against a Republican inside a state that has long been dominated by GOP leadership.”

GIRL SCOUT OF THE YEAR
WISN:) “As if any of us needed any more of an incentive to buy even more boxes of Girl Scout cookies, a fifth-grade marketing genius just reinvented her Samoas packaging in the best way possible. The Colorado-based ‘Cookie CEO’ Charlotte Holmberg — who earned the title after selling more than 2,000 boxes in 2018 — is upping her game in a major way in the new year. Turning her Samoas into Momoas, the elementary schooler redesigned her packaging to include a shirtless Jason Momoa, and unsurprisingly, they’re flying off the figurative shelves. Holmberg happened to have a marketing professional already on her sales team — her mom — and after spotting a few Momoa Samoa memes, she thought up the rebranding. The pair printed a shot of the ‘Aquaman’ star on the classic purple packaging, and suddenly, everyone was eager for a box.”

On the roster: Why civics education matters – House readies resolution to end national emergency – Harris calls for new election in NC House race – Biden considers his family ahead of 2020 decision – Girl scout of the year
WHY CIVICS EDUCATION MATTERS
You no doubt heard the news. Americans don’t know bupkis about our history and system of government.
The survey from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation found appallingly low percentages of Americans were conversant even in the basic facts of our system and past.
In order to pass a U.S. citizenship test, an applicant must get at least 60 percent of the questions on a civics and history test correct. You can take a sample test here but knowing you, dear readers, 60 percent will seem like a rock-bottom grade.
If you have been reading us for any length of time you will also know that civics and history education is something of a hobbyhorse for us, so we were certainly happy to see attention brought to the subject. What concerns us, however, is that very few people seem to be discussing _why_this is a problem.
Knowing civics and history isn’t something that is an abstract good like knowing how to play the clarinet, hit a one-handed backhand or tell the difference between Monet and Manet. It is a practical, vital knowledge the lack of which is creating a crisis for our country.
Civics education, where it still exists, is treated often as something obligatory. You make your bed, you shine your shoes for church, you say “please” and you know how many justices are on the Supreme Court.
If we expect students to care and schools to emphasize the subject, we had better make sure that everyone understands what’s at stake. Without a working knowledge of what this country is and how our system works, each generation becomes less able to operate this miracle that has proven to be a light into the world.
The most significant problems facing our government today aren’t really ideological, they’re systemic.
For example, there are good debates to be had about how the federal government should allocate the nearly $3.5 trillion in tax revue it collects each year. Where should it be spent and in what increments? How much more money should the government borrow?
But politicians have essentially destroyed the system that allowed those questions to be addressed for the previous two centuries. Most of the money that’s being spent is doled out on schedules and rates set decades ago.
Less than a third of federal spending is actually appropriated by the current Congress. The other 70 percent goes to entitlement programs, pensions, pre-programed welfare systems and interest on the $22 trillion national debt. It’s that way because previous generations of lawmakers determined they and their successors were too irresponsible to allocate money anymore.
While most federal outlays cruise on like a deep space probe zooming out past Pluto, what obviously will happen to the discussion over the ever-shrinking slice that Congress really does control? When there was plenty of money, the appropriations system allowed for an orderly, if greasy, means for allocating the money. Now, every time the bills come due at the end of the federal fiscal year, we start jumping off of fiscal cliffs.
We recently endured what was called the “Seinfeld shutdown,” the shutdown about nothing. Lawmakers and the president were at odds over a little flyspeck of spending – four hundredths of a percent of the deficit alone – and closed a substantial part of the government for more than a month only to come to what was an obvious compromise from the start.
However you feel about border barriers and “delayed action for childhood arrivals” and anything else about immigration, that’s not a sensible way to have discussions about spending priorities. That’s not liberal or conservative, Republican or Democratic but rather systemic. The way the U.S. government handles its money is a rotten, chaotic mess.
But there’s little political advantage to be had in addressing that. In fact, there’s substantial political disadvantage.
Listen to the president and his potential general election opponents as they talk about money. They sound like 1970s pornographic actress and disco star Andrea True. “How do you like it? More, more, more.” More tax cuts, more infrastructure spending, more entitlements, more welfare programs. More, more, more.
Spending is just one example. We could say the same of our legal, educational, medical and national security apparatuses. Deep problems continue to churn, but politicians across the spectrum tend to offer painless pabulum.

Now, we should rightly blame the politicians who pander and deceive. But as the scorpion told the frog, we know it is their nature. As comedian Chris Rock once joked about sexual fidelity, “Men are only as faithful as their options.” A dim, if not entirely undeserved view. For politicians, the maxim would hold that they are only about as honest as they have to be.
And voters are letting them get away with murder.
We will not reinvent human nature in such a way that a new generation of selfless politicians rises up to save us from ourselves. But that is what Americans look for each successive election. What do we want each cycle? Change. And each cycle they deliver the kind of surficial change that temporarily gratifies the bloody-minded partisanship of one side but leaves most people with a deeper-still feeling of unease. Something is wrong, but we just can’t say what.
So what will we choose next time? Why change, of course.
The purpose of an educated electorate – the crucial aim of Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and others – was as the ultimate guarantor of good government. If the people do not know what they have, they won’t know how to use it. They won’t know which demands are sensible to make. They will become easy prey for demagogues.
Welp.
The urgent work of educating the next generation in American history and civics isn’t just something that would be nice or to avoid national embarrassment. It is actually about rebuilding a bulwark against tyranny. As our government slips deeper and deeper into dysfunction and people come to have less and less faith in the American system, we become sitting ducks for the kind of authoritarianism that has ruled most of our species for most of our history.
Civic classes are about nothing less than guaranteeing “the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”
THE RULEBOOK: HOLD YOUR GROUND
“Whatever efficacy the union may have had in ordinary cases, it appears that the moment a cause of difference sprang up, capable of trying its strength, it failed.” – Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, Federalist No. 19TIME OUT: THE PRICE OF COLLEGE SPORTS
Sports Illustrated: “UNC-Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium is typically a showcase for everything that’s great about sports… But the story was [Zion Williamson’s injury]. He’s the presumptive No. 1 pick in the NBA draft, and one of the biggest names in sports at the moment. … What happens when the biggest game in America becomes dominated by the player who left after 30 seconds? For one, after 48 hours of news stories about Duke-UNC ticket prices, there were natural conclusions drawn about the injustice of Zion performing as an unpaid amateur and suffering an injury while almost everyone else in the college sports ecosystem was able to get rich off the game. That argument makes some sense. … And why does Zion Williamson have to be in college at all? … If players are talented enough to be drafted into the NBA after high school, many around the sport think they should be able to make that transition as soon as they graduate.”

HOUSE READIES RESOLUTION TO END NATIONAL EMERGENCY
WaPo: “Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday night that the House will vote in the coming days on a resolution rejecting President Trump’s national emergency declaration, encouraging fellow Democrats to support the effort as they try to stop Trump’s push to expand efforts to build a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border. In a ‘Dear Colleague’ letter, the California Democrat said Trump’s declaration ‘undermines the separation of powers and Congress’s power of the purse, a power exclusively reserved by the text of the Constitution to the first branch of government, the Legislative branch, a branch co-equal to the Executive.’ By invoking a national emergency, Trump is claiming authority to shift federal funds appropriated by Congress for other purposes to be spent instead on his border wall. Pelosi announced that the House would move ‘swiftly’ to pass a disapproval resolution authored by Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Tex.), although she did not specify an exact date and indicated it would move through a House committee before coming to the floor.”
Sen. Collins backs lawsuit against national emergency –Portland Press Herald: “Republican Sen. Susan Collins said Wednesday that she supports the lawsuit filed by 16 states – including Maine – challenging President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to build a southern border wall. But Collins also signaled support for a straightforward congressional disapproval of an emergency declaration that she views as having ‘dubious constitutionality’ and setting a dangerous precedent. ‘It may be that the courts will stop what I believe to be a very unwise action, or it may come about through Congress,’ Collins said Wednesday. ‘If the House passes a resolution of disapproval and it is a clean resolution, I will support that.’ … The three other members of Maine’s congressional delegation – independent Sen. Angus King and Democratic Reps. Chellie Pingree and Jared Golden – also have strongly criticized the president’s emergency declaration.”
The Judge’s Ruling: Trump’s brazen overreach – This week Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano explains how the president’s national emergency is unconstitutional: “When the president acts pursuant to authority granted to him by the Congress in an area of government delegated to him by the Constitution, his authority is at its peak, and he is free to exercise it as he sees fit. When he acts in an area as to which the Congress has been silent, he acts in a twilight zone and can succeed only if the area of his behavior is delegated to him under the Constitution and if he enjoys broad public support. But when the president acts in an area that the Constitution gives exclusively to Congress — such as spending money — and when he acts in defiance of Congress, his acts are unconstitutional and are to be enjoined.” More here.
HARRIS CALLS FOR NEW ELECTION IN NC HOUSE RACE
Raleigh News & Observer: “In a startling statement, Republican candidate Mark Harris Thursday called for a new election in the 9th Congressional District ‘to restore the confidence of voters.’ Harris’ statement came after a break in a hearing after he had testified about his dealings with Bladen County operative McCrae Dowless. On the stand, Harris said he suffered two strokes in January while hospitalized for a severe infection and was ‘struggling’ to get through the hearing. After hearing the evidence of absentee ballot fraud, Harris said, ‘I believe a new election should be called.’ A member of North Carolina’s State Board of Elections had pressed Harris on why he didn’t heed warnings from his son about hiring Dowless to run an absentee ballot operation in his 2018 campaign for Congress. … ‘He raised concerns (about Dowless). I did not consider John’s (emails) to be a warning. I thought he was overreacting,’ [Harris said].”
BIDEN CONSIDERS HIS FAMILY AHEAD OF 2020 DECISION
NBC News:Joe Biden wants to be president. And each day, he’s closer to being ready to run for the office. But even as he weighs a campaign to unseat President Donald Trump, Biden is carefully considering a key question — what happens when the president or his top allies try to make his family an issue? Conversations with aides to the former vice president and others who’ve spoken with him in recent weeks present the idea of a Biden candidacy as not if but when. … But Biden knows and expects the president to fight as hard to stay in the White House as he did to win it in the first place — and he’s already shown nothing is off limits. … No line of attack would be more reprehensible to the former vice president than one directed at his family, and he and his team have been forced to consider that even as they also weigh the political dynamics.”
Harris swipes at far-left Dems over open borders –Fox News: “Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris said ‘We can’t have open borders’ as she continues to disassociate from her party’s calls for unrestricted immigration and tearing down existing barriers at the U.S.-Mexico border. The U.S. senator from California, a leading 2020 hopeful for the White House on the Democratic side, has recently been overshadowed by the entry of Senate colleague Bernie Sanders — the progressives’ likely first choice — into the race, and the potential candidacy of Beto O’Rourke the former congressman from Texas who’s been making inroads and positioning himself as the anti-Trump candidate. This prompted Harris to come out against O’Rourke’s call to tear down the existing 700 miles of fencing on the U.S.-Mexico border during a Wednesday night appearance on Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show.’”
Family matters: Kamala’s dad isn’t happy over her comments on weed –Fox News: “The father of Sen. Kamala Harris is trying to distance himself from the 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful after she said her pot smoking in college stemmed from her Jamaican heritage. … Harris’ father, Donald, disapproved of the comments, which he told the Jamaica Global Online constituted ‘identity politics.’ ‘My dear departed grandmothers … as well as my deceased parents, must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics,’ he said. Donald Harris continued: ‘Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty.’”
Williamson: ‘One last grift for Bernie Sanders’ – National Review: “Right-wing populists and left-wing populists may disagree about such world-changing issues as whether the phrase ‘a man with ovaries’ actually means anything, but on the fundamental policy questions they come down strikingly close to one another. That is because the enemy of populism isn’t the right wing or the left wing — the enemy of populism is liberalism, understood here not in the demented sense we use it in U.S. politics (where liberals_ are the people opposed to_ liberalism) but in its proper sense, meaning the classical-liberal regime of property rights, free enterprise, free trade, individual rights, and a worldview based on well-ordered liberty emphasizing cooperation within and between nations.”
Disinformation cyber campaign begins against Dems –Politico: “A wide-ranging disinformation campaign aimed at Democratic 2020 candidates is already underway on social media, with signs that foreign state actors are driving at least some of the activity. The main targets appear to be Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas), four of the most prominent announced or prospective candidates for president. A POLITICO review of recent data extracted from Twitter and from other platforms … suggests that the goal of the coordinated barrage appears to be undermining the nascent candidacies through the dissemination of memes, hashtags, misinformation and distortions of their positions. But the divisive nature of many of the posts also hints at a broader effort to sow discord and chaos within the Democratic presidential primary. The cyber propaganda … is being pushed across a variety of platforms…”
POMPEO RULES OUT ON KANSAS SENATE RUN
Politico: “Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday that he has ruled out running for a soon-to-be-vacant Senate seat in his home state of Kansas next year in favor of remaining the nation’s top diplomat. The former Kansas congressman and CIA director had dodged questions about whether he planned on running in 2020 to claim the seat held by retiring GOP Sen. Pat Roberts, fueling speculation that he might by attending certain events and meeting with GOP operatives in the state. But on NBC’s ‘Today’ show on Thursday, the secretary of state threw cold water on the prospect, telling anchor Craig Melvin ‘it’s ruled out.’ ‘I love Kansas. I’m going to be the secretary of State as long as President Trump gives me the opportunity to serve as America’s senior diplomat,” Pompeo said. ‘I love doing what I’m doing and I have 75,000 great warriors out and around the world trying to deliver for the American people.’”
Poll: Joni Ernst’s approval rating soars ahead of 2020 re-election –Des Moines Register: “U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst’s approval rating has hit its highest point ever as she prepares for a 2020 re-election campaign, a new Des Moines RegisteMediacom Iowa Poll shows. Fifty-seven percent of Iowans say they approve of the job she’s doing — a 10 percentage-point increase since September. She earns approval from a majority of Iowans in each of the state’s four congressional districts. That includes a high of 65 percent in the Republican-heavy 4th District, in northwest and north central Iowa, and a low of 51 percent in the Democratic-leaning 2nd District, in southeast Iowa. … Ernst, a military veteran from Red Oak, became the first woman in Iowa elected to either chamber of Congress in 2014. … She announced in December that she intends to seek re-election.”
Alabama Rep. Bradley Byrne announces 2020 Senate run –AL.com: “U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne became the first official Republican entrant into the 2020 U.S. Senate race announcing his intention to run in a race that could become one of the most expensive political contests in Alabama history. … Democratic U.S. Senator Doug Jones, who narrowly defeated Republican Roy Moore in that election, raised more than $24 million. … Byrne said he anticipates, similar to the 2017 special election, national attention paid to the Alabama Senate contest next year. The race is considered one of the few 2020 Senate contests in which a Democratic officeholder is seeking re-election against a Republican inside a state that has long been dominated by GOP leadership.”

WHY CIVICS EDUCATION MATTERS
You no doubt heard the news. Americans don’t know bupkis about our history and system of government.
The survey from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation found appallingly low percentages of Americans were conversant even in the basic facts of our system and past.
In order to pass a U.S. citizenship test, an applicant must get at least 60 percent of the questions on a civics and history test correct. You can take a sample test here but knowing you, dear readers, 60 percent will seem like a rock-bottom grade.
If you have been reading us for any length of time you will also know that civics and history education is something of a hobbyhorse for us, so we were certainly happy to see attention brought to the subject. What concerns us, however, is that very few people seem to be discussing _why_this is a problem.
Knowing civics and history isn’t something that is an abstract good like knowing how to play the clarinet, hit a one-handed backhand or tell the difference between Monet and Manet. It is a practical, vital knowledge the lack of which is creating a crisis for our country.
Civics education, where it still exists, is treated often as something obligatory. You make your bed, you shine your shoes for church, you say “please” and you know how many justices are on the Supreme Court.
If we expect students to care and schools to emphasize the subject, we had better make sure that everyone understands what’s at stake. Without a working knowledge of what this country is and how our system works, each generation becomes less able to operate this miracle that has proven to be a light into the world.
The most significant problems facing our government today aren’t really ideological, they’re systemic.
For example, there are good debates to be had about how the federal government should allocate the nearly $3.5 trillion in tax revue it collects each year. Where should it be spent and in what increments? How much more money should the government borrow?
But politicians have essentially destroyed the system that allowed those questions to be addressed for the previous two centuries. Most of the money that’s being spent is doled out on schedules and rates set decades ago.
Less than a third of federal spending is actually appropriated by the current Congress. The other 70 percent goes to entitlement programs, pensions, pre-programed welfare systems and interest on the $22 trillion national debt. It’s that way because previous generations of lawmakers determined they and their successors were too irresponsible to allocate money anymore.
While most federal outlays cruise on like a deep space probe zooming out past Pluto, what obviously will happen to the discussion over the ever-shrinking slice that Congress really does control? When there was plenty of money, the appropriations system allowed for an orderly, if greasy, means for allocating the money. Now, every time the bills come due at the end of the federal fiscal year, we start jumping off of fiscal cliffs.
We recently endured what was called the “Seinfeld shutdown,” the shutdown about nothing. Lawmakers and the president were at odds over a little flyspeck of spending – four hundredths of a percent of the deficit alone – and closed a substantial part of the government for more than a month only to come to what was an obvious compromise from the start.
However you feel about border barriers and “delayed action for childhood arrivals” and anything else about immigration, that’s not a sensible way to have discussions about spending priorities. That’s not liberal or conservative, Republican or Democratic but rather systemic. The way the U.S. government handles its money is a rotten, chaotic mess.

HOUSE READIES RESOLUTION TO END NATIONAL EMERGENCY
WaPo: “Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday night that the House will vote in the coming days on a resolution rejecting President Trump’s national emergency declaration, encouraging fellow Democrats to support the effort as they try to stop Trump’s push to expand efforts to build a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border. In a ‘Dear Colleague’ letter, the California Democrat said Trump’s declaration ‘undermines the separation of powers and Congress’s power of the purse, a power exclusively reserved by the text of the Constitution to the first branch of government, the Legislative branch, a branch co-equal to the Executive.’ By invoking a national emergency, Trump is claiming authority to shift federal funds appropriated by Congress for other purposes to be spent instead on his border wall.

Joaquin Castro (D-Tex.), although she did not specify an exact date and indicated it would move through a House committee before coming to the floor.”
Sen. Collins backs lawsuit against national emergency –Portland Press Herald: “Republican Sen. Susan Collins said Wednesday that she supports the lawsuit filed by 16 states – including Maine – challenging President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to build a southern border wall. But Collins also signaled support for a straightforward congressional disapproval of an emergency declaration that she views as having ‘dubious constitutionality’ and setting a dangerous precedent. ‘It may be that the courts will stop what I believe to be a very unwise action, or it may come about through Congress,’ Collins said Wednesday. ‘If the House passes a resolution of disapproval and it is a clean resolution, I will support that.’ … The three other members of Maine’s congressional delegation – independent Sen. Angus King and Democratic Reps. Chellie Pingree and Jared Golden – also have strongly criticized the president’s emergency declaration.”
The Judge’s Ruling: Trump’s brazen overreach – This week Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano explains how the president’s national emergency is unconstitutional: “When the president acts pursuant to authority granted to him by the Congress in an area of government delegated to him by the Constitution, his authority is at its peak, and he is free to exercise it as he sees fit. When he acts in an area as to which the Congress has been silent, he acts in a twilight zone and can succeed only if the area of his behavior is delegated to him under the Constitution and if he enjoys broad public support. But when the president acts in an area that the Constitution gives exclusively to Congress — such as spending money — and when he acts in defiance of Congress, his acts are unconstitutional and are to be enjoined.” More here.
HARRIS CALLS FOR NEW ELECTION IN NC HOUSE RACE
Raleigh News & Observer: “In a startling statement, Republican candidate Mark Harris Thursday called for a new election in the 9th Congressional District ‘to restore the confidence of voters.’ Harris’ statement came after a break in a hearing after he had testified about his dealings with Bladen County operative McCrae Dowless. On the stand, Harris said he suffered two strokes in January while hospitalized for a severe infection and was ‘struggling’ to get through the hearing. After hearing the evidence of absentee ballot fraud, Harris said, ‘I believe a new election should be called.’ A member of North Carolina’s State Board of Elections had pressed Harris on why he didn’t heed warnings from his son about hiring Dowless to run an absentee ballot operation in his 2018 campaign for Congress. … ‘He raised concerns (about Dowless). I did not consider John’s (emails) to be a warning. I thought he was overreacting,’ [Harris said].”
BIDEN CONSIDERS HIS FAMILY AHEAD OF 2020 DECISION
NBC News:Joe Biden wants to be president. And each day, he’s closer to being ready to run for the office. But even as he weighs a campaign to unseat President Donald Trump, Biden is carefully considering a key question — what happens when the president or his top allies try to make his family an issue? Conversations with aides to the former vice president and others who’ve spoken with him in recent weeks present the idea of a Biden candidacy as not if but when. … But Biden knows and expects the president to fight as hard to stay in the White House as he did to win it in the first place — and he’s already shown nothing is off limits. … No line of attack would be more reprehensible to the former vice president than one directed at his family, and he and his team have been forced to consider that even as they also weigh the political dynamics.”
Harris swipes at far-left Dems over open borders –Fox News: “Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris said ‘We can’t have open borders’ as she continues to disassociate from her party’s calls for unrestricted immigration and tearing down existing barriers at the U.S.-Mexico border. The U.S. senator from California, a leading 2020 hopeful for the White House on the Democratic side, has recently been overshadowed by the entry of Senate colleague Bernie Sanders — the progressives’ likely first choice — into the race, and the potential candidacy of Beto O’Rourke the former congressman from Texas who’s been making inroads and positioning himself as the anti-Trump candidate. This prompted Harris to come out against O’Rourke’s call to tear down the existing 700 miles of fencing on the U.S.-Mexico border during a Wednesday night appearance on Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show.’”
Family matters: Kamala’s dad isn’t happy over her comments on weed –Fox News: “The father of Sen. Kamala Harris is trying to distance himself from the 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful after she said her pot smoking in college stemmed from her Jamaican heritage. … Harris’ father, Donald, disapproved of the comments, which he told the Jamaica Global Online constituted ‘identity politics.’ ‘My dear departed grandmothers … as well as my deceased parents, must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics,’ he said. Donald Harris continued: ‘Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty.’”
Williamson: ‘One last grift for Bernie Sanders’ – National Review: “Right-wing populists and left-wing populists may disagree about such world-changing issues as whether the phrase ‘a man with ovaries’ actually means anything, but on the fundamental policy questions they come down strikingly close to one another. That is because the enemy of populism isn’t the right wing or the left wing — the enemy of populism is liberalism, understood here not in the demented sense we use it in U.S. politics (where liberals_ are the people opposed to_ liberalism) but in its proper sense, meaning the classical-liberal regime of property rights, free enterprise, free trade, individual rights, and a worldview based on well-ordered liberty emphasizing cooperation within and between nations.”
Disinformation cyber campaign begins against Dems –Politico: “A wide-ranging disinformation campaign aimed at Democratic 2020 candidates is already underway on social media, with signs that foreign state actors are driving at least some of the activity. The main targets appear to be Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas), four of the most prominent announced or prospective candidates for president. A POLITICO review of recent data extracted from Twitter and from other platforms … suggests that the goal of the coordinated barrage appears to be undermining the nascent candidacies through the dissemination of memes, hashtags, misinformation and distortions of their positions. But the divisive nature of many of the posts also hints at a broader effort to sow discord and chaos within the Democratic presidential primary. The cyber propaganda … is being pushed across a variety of platforms…”
POMPEO RULES OUT ON KANSAS SENATE RUN
Politico: “Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday that he has ruled out running for a soon-to-be-vacant Senate seat in his home state of Kansas next year in favor of remaining the nation’s top diplomat. The former Kansas congressman and CIA director had dodged questions about whether he planned on running in 2020 to claim the seat held by retiring GOP Sen. Pat Roberts, fueling speculation that he might by attending certain events and meeting with GOP operatives in the state. But on NBC’s ‘Today’ show on Thursday, the secretary of state threw cold water on the prospect, telling anchor Craig Melvin ‘it’s ruled out.’ ‘I love Kansas. I’m going to be the secretary of State as long as President Trump gives me the opportunity to serve as America’s senior diplomat,” Pompeo said. ‘I love doing what I’m doing and I have 75,000 great warriors out and around the world trying to deliver for the American people.’”
Poll: Joni Ernst’s approval rating soars ahead of 2020 re-election –Des Moines Register: “U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst’s approval rating has hit its highest point ever as she prepares for a 2020 re-election campaign, a new Des Moines RegisteMediacom Iowa Poll shows. Fifty-seven percent of Iowans say they approve of the job she’s doing — a 10 percentage-point increase since September. She earns approval from a majority of Iowans in each of the state’s four congressional districts. That includes a high of 65 percent in the Republican-heavy 4th District, in northwest and north central Iowa, and a low of 51 percent in the Democratic-leaning 2nd District, in southeast Iowa. … Ernst, a military veteran from Red Oak, became the first woman in Iowa elected to either chamber of Congress in 2014. … She announced in December that she intends to seek re-election.”
Alabama Rep. Bradley Byrne announces 2020 Senate run –AL.com: “U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne became the first official Republican entrant into the 2020 U.S. Senate race announcing his intention to run in a race that could become one of the most expensive political contests in Alabama history. … Democratic U.S. Senator Doug Jones, who narrowly defeated Republican Roy Moore in that election, raised more than $24 million. … Byrne said he anticipates, similar to the 2017 special election, national attention paid to the Alabama Senate contest next year. The race is considered one of the few 2020 Senate contests in which a Democratic officeholder is seeking re-election against a Republican inside a state that has long been dominated by GOP leadership.”

GIRL SCOUT OF THE YEAR
WISN:) “As if any of us needed any more of an incentive to buy even more boxes of Girl Scout cookies, a fifth-grade marketing genius just reinvented her Samoas packaging in the best way possible. The Colorado-based ‘Cookie CEO’ Charlotte Holmberg — who earned the title after selling more than 2,000 boxes in 2018 — is upping her game in a major way in the new year. Turning her Samoas into Momoas, the elementary schooler redesigned her packaging to include a shirtless Jason Momoa, and unsurprisingly, they’re flying off the figurative shelves. Holmberg happened to have a marketing professional already on her sales team — her mom — and after spotting a few Momoa Samoa memes, she thought up the rebranding. The pair printed a shot of the ‘Aquaman’ star on the classic purple packaging, and suddenly, everyone was eager for a box.”

On the roster: Why civics education matters – House readies resolution to end national emergency – Harris calls for new election in NC House race – Biden considers his family ahead of 2020 decision – Girl scout of the year
WHY CIVICS EDUCATION MATTERS
You no doubt heard the news. Americans don’t know bupkis about our history and system of government.
The survey from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation found appallingly low percentages of Americans were conversant even in the basic facts of our system and past.
In order to pass a U.S. citizenship test, an applicant must get at least 60 percent of the questions on a civics and history test correct. You can take a sample test here but knowing you, dear readers, 60 percent will seem like a rock-bottom grade.
If you have been reading us for any length of time you will also know that civics and history education is something of a hobbyhorse for us, so we were certainly happy to see attention brought to the subject. What concerns us, however, is that very few people seem to be discussing _why_this is a problem.
Knowing civics and history isn’t something that is an abstract good like knowing how to play the clarinet, hit a one-handed backhand or tell the difference between Monet and Manet. It is a practical, vital knowledge the lack of which is creating a crisis for our country.
Civics education, where it still exists, is treated often as something obligatory. You make your bed, you shine your shoes for church, you say “please” and you know how many justices are on the Supreme Court.
If we expect students to care and schools to emphasize the subject, we had better make sure that everyone understands what’s at stake. Without a working knowledge of what this country is and how our system works, each generation becomes less able to operate this miracle that has proven to be a light into the world.
The most significant problems facing our government today aren’t really ideological, they’re systemic.
For example, there are good debates to be had about how the federal government should allocate the nearly $3.5 trillion in tax revue it collects each year. Where should it be spent and in what increments? How much more money should the government borrow?
But politicians have essentially destroyed the system that allowed those questions to be addressed for the previous two centuries. Most of the money that’s being spent is doled out on schedules and rates set decades ago.
Less than a third of federal spending is actually appropriated by the current Congress. The other 70 percent goes to entitlement programs, pensions, pre-programed welfare systems and interest on the $22 trillion national debt. It’s that way because previous generations of lawmakers determined they and their successors were too irresponsible to allocate money anymore.
While most federal outlays cruise on like a deep space probe zooming out past Pluto, what obviously will happen to the discussion over the ever-shrinking slice that Congress really does control? When there was plenty of money, the appropriations system allowed for an orderly, if greasy, means for allocating the money. Now, every time the bills come due at the end of the federal fiscal year, we start jumping off of fiscal cliffs.
We recently endured what was called the “Seinfeld shutdown,” the shutdown about nothing. Lawmakers and the president were at odds over a little flyspeck of spending – four hundredths of a percent of the deficit alone – and closed a substantial part of the government for more than a month only to come to what was an obvious compromise from the start.
However you feel about border barriers and “delayed action for childhood arrivals” and anything else about immigration, that’s not a sensible way to have discussions about spending priorities. That’s not liberal or conservative, Republican or Democratic but rather systemic. The way the U.S. government handles its money is a rotten, chaotic mess.
But there’s little political advantage to be had in addressing that. In fact, there’s substantial political disadvantage.
Listen to the president and his potential general election opponents as they talk about money. They sound like 1970s pornographic actress and disco star Andrea True. “How do you like it? More, more, more.” More tax cuts, more infrastructure spending, more entitlements, more welfare programs. More, more, more.
Spending is just one example. We could say the same of our legal, educational, medical and national security apparatuses. Deep problems continue to churn, but politicians across the spectrum tend to offer painless pabulum.

Now, we should rightly blame the politicians who pander and deceive. But as the scorpion told the frog, we know it is their nature. As comedian Chris Rock once joked about sexual fidelity, “Men are only as faithful as their options.” A dim, if not entirely undeserved view. For politicians, the maxim would hold that they are only about as honest as they have to be.
And voters are letting them get away with murder.
We will not reinvent human nature in such a way that a new generation of selfless politicians rises up to save us from ourselves. But that is what Americans look for each successive election. What do we want each cycle? Change. And each cycle they deliver the kind of surficial change that temporarily gratifies the bloody-minded partisanship of one side but leaves most people with a deeper-still feeling of unease. Something is wrong, but we just can’t say what.
So what will we choose next time? Why change, of course.
The purpose of an educated electorate – the crucial aim of Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and others – was as the ultimate guarantor of good government. If the people do not know what they have, they won’t know how to use it. They won’t know which demands are sensible to make. They will become easy prey for demagogues.
Welp.
The urgent work of educating the next generation in American history and civics isn’t just something that would be nice or to avoid national embarrassment. It is actually about rebuilding a bulwark against tyranny. As our government slips deeper and deeper into dysfunction and people come to have less and less faith in the American system, we become sitting ducks for the kind of authoritarianism that has ruled most of our species for most of our history.
Civic classes are about nothing less than guaranteeing “the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”
THE RULEBOOK: HOLD YOUR GROUND
“Whatever efficacy the union may have had in ordinary cases, it appears that the moment a cause of difference sprang up, capable of trying its strength, it failed.” – Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, Federalist No. 19TIME OUT: THE PRICE OF COLLEGE SPORTS
Sports Illustrated: “UNC-Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium is typically a showcase for everything that’s great about sports… But the story was [Zion Williamson’s injury]. He’s the presumptive No. 1 pick in the NBA draft, and one of the biggest names in sports at the moment. … What happens when the biggest game in America becomes dominated by the player who left after 30 seconds? For one, after 48 hours of news stories about Duke-UNC ticket prices, there were natural conclusions drawn about the injustice of Zion performing as an unpaid amateur and suffering an injury while almost everyone else in the college sports ecosystem was able to get rich off the game. That argument makes some sense. … And why does Zion Williamson have to be in college at all? … If players are talented enough to be drafted into the NBA after high school, many around the sport think they should be able to make that transition as soon as they graduate.”

HOUSE READIES RESOLUTION TO END NATIONAL EMERGENCY
WaPo: “Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday night that the House will vote in the coming days on a resolution rejecting President Trump’s national emergency declaration, encouraging fellow Democrats to support the effort as they try to stop Trump’s push to expand efforts to build a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border. In a ‘Dear Colleague’ letter, the California Democrat said Trump’s declaration ‘undermines the separation of powers and Congress’s power of the purse, a power exclusively reserved by the text of the Constitution to the first branch of government, the Legislative branch, a branch co-equal to the Executive.’ By invoking a national emergency, Trump is claiming authority to shift federal funds appropriated by Congress for other purposes to be spent instead on his border wall. Pelosi announced that the House would move ‘swiftly’ to pass a disapproval resolution authored by Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Tex.), although she did not specify an exact date and indicated it would move through a House committee before coming to the floor.”
Sen. Collins backs lawsuit against national emergency –Portland Press Herald: “Republican Sen. Susan Collins said Wednesday that she supports the lawsuit filed by 16 states – including Maine – challenging President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to build a southern border wall. But Collins also signaled support for a straightforward congressional disapproval of an emergency declaration that she views as having ‘dubious constitutionality’ and setting a dangerous precedent. ‘It may be that the courts will stop what I believe to be a very unwise action, or it may come about through Congress,’ Collins said Wednesday. ‘If the House passes a resolution of disapproval and it is a clean resolution, I will support that.’ … The three other members of Maine’s congressional delegation – independent Sen. Angus King and Democratic Reps. Chellie Pingree and Jared Golden – also have strongly criticized the president’s emergency declaration.”
The Judge’s Ruling: Trump’s brazen overreach – This week Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano explains how the president’s national emergency is unconstitutional: “When the president acts pursuant to authority granted to him by the Congress in an area of government delegated to him by the Constitution, his authority is at its peak, and he is free to exercise it as he sees fit.

HARRIS CALLS FOR NEW ELECTION IN NC HOUSE RACE
Raleigh News & Observer: “In a startling statement, Republican candidate Mark Harris Thursday called for a new election in the 9th Congressional District ‘to restore the confidence of voters.’ Harris’ statement came after a break in a hearing after he had testified about his dealings with Bladen County operative McCrae Dowless. On the stand, Harris said he suffered two strokes in January while hospitalized for a severe infection and was ‘struggling’ to get through the hearing. After hearing the evidence of absentee ballot fraud, Harris said, ‘I believe a new election should be called.’ A member of North Carolina’s State Board of Elections had pressed Harris on why he didn’t heed warnings from his son about hiring Dowless to run an absentee ballot operation in his 2018 campaign for Congress. … ‘He raised concerns (about Dowless). I did not consider John’s (emails) to be a warning. I thought he was overreacting,’ [Harris said].”
BIDEN CONSIDERS HIS FAMILY AHEAD OF 2020 DECISION
NBC News:Joe Biden wants to be president. And each day, he’s closer to being ready to run for the office. But even as he weighs a campaign to unseat President Donald Trump, Biden is carefully considering a key question — what happens when the president or his top allies try to make his family an issue?

Harris swipes at far-left Dems over open borders –Fox News: “Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris said ‘We can’t have open borders’ as she continues to disassociate from her party’s calls for unrestricted immigration and tearing down existing barriers at the U.S.-Mexico border. The U.S. senator from California, a leading 2020 hopeful for the White House on the Democratic side, has recently been overshadowed by the entry of Senate colleague Bernie Sanders — the progressives’ likely first choice — into the race, and the potential candidacy of Beto O’Rourke the former congressman from Texas who’s been making inroads and positioning himself as the anti-Trump candidate. This prompted Harris to come out against O’Rourke’s call to tear down the existing 700 miles of fencing on the U.S.-Mexico border during a Wednesday night appearance on Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show.’”

Disinformation cyber campaign begins against Dems –Politico: “A wide-ranging disinformation campaign aimed at Democratic 2020 candidates is already underway on social media, with signs that foreign state actors are driving at least some of the activity. The main targets appear to be Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas), four of the most prominent announced or prospective candidates for president. A POLITICO review of recent data extracted from Twitter and from other platforms … suggests that the goal of the coordinated barrage appears to be undermining the nascent candidacies through the dissemination of memes, hashtags, misinformation and distortions of their positions. But the divisive nature of many of the posts also hints at a broader effort to sow discord and chaos within the Democratic presidential primary.

Poll: Joni Ernst’s approval rating soars ahead of 2020 re-election –Des Moines Register: “U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst’s approval rating has hit its highest point ever as she prepares for a 2020 re-election campaign, a new Des Moines RegisteMediacom Iowa Poll shows. Fifty-seven percent of Iowans say they approve of the job she’s doing — a 10 percentage-point increase since September. She earns approval from a majority of Iowans in each of the state’s four congressional districts. That includes a high of 65 percent in the Republican-heavy 4th District, in northwest and north central Iowa, and a low of 51 percent in the Democratic-leaning 2nd District, in southeast Iowa. … Ernst, a military veteran from Red Oak, became the first woman in Iowa elected to either chamber of Congress in 2014. … She announced in December that she intends to seek re-election.”
Alabama Rep. Bradley Byrne announces 2020 Senate run –AL.com: “U.S. Rep.

2019.02.20 04:51 DrewHoov My Top 10 Reasons for Conceding

Hi everyone,
Someone was bothered recently about players who concede rather than finish a game. I'm here to offer a different point of view. Here are my top 10 reasons for conceding:
1) I'm after a daily quest, and I know I just hit it. Enjoy the win!
2) I'm at work, and I finished pooping. Enjoy the win!
3) My dog barked and woke up my baby, time to scream into a pillow. Enjoy the win!
4) I'm just not enjoying playing against you because I'm outdrawn and you have no win condition. I found your win condition, it's me being bored. Enjoy the win!
5) Someone knocked at my door. I forgot I ordered girl scout cookies. I'm going to eat a box of thin mints while frantically searching for cash, and you can have a win!
6) Timer went off and I have to do something in the kitchen. Rather than play poorly and annoy you with long waits between plays, you can enjoy the win!
7) I can tell I'm not going to win, or, if I were to win, it would require 20 more very improbable draws on both our parts. You win!
8) I'm playing a meme deck that does particularly poorly against the meta deck you're probably playing. Enjoy the win!
9) I was not actually trying to play casual/ranked. Oops. Enjoy the win!
10) A child in my house pooped. Enjoy the win!

2019.02.19 20:49 DukeMo I love TESL. Here's why I'm leaving

TESL is a great game, has great mechanics, interesting gameplay, and various archetypes that appeal to lots of different people. The community, especially on twitch and discord, has kept my interest and has been a joy to be around.
Let's be clear. I love this game. I've played it more than I should since the mobile release. I've finished top 100 in all but a few months while I was actively playing. I've met lots of awesome players and competitors in twitch chats, and watched some amazing tournaments. Watching QC with friends was as exciting as watching any IRL sports event I've seen. Here's what is pushing me away from the game.
1. Matchmaking.
Playing at high legend is a frustrating experience for me, as well as most people I've talked to. Throughout the month there are often mismatched games against Ladder rank 3 players, or #1000 legend players. These games aren't fun, win or lose. It's not satisfying to outplay my opponent when I know his deck is so greedy that he doesn't really stand a chance. It's also not satisfying to get high rolled with silly includes that are anti-synergistic. Like a bunch of hard removal in an aggro deck. Or Immolating Blast in a token deck. It's frustrating to play against these decks because I can attempt to play around and anticipate synergistic cards, but when these cards that have anti-synergy with the apparent strategy come down... it's just not fun.
Possible fix? Let me opt-in to a queue that provides more accurate matchmaking at the cost of longer queue times. I'd be happy to wait 2 minutes+ for a good game at high legend. I think most people in my position would.
2. Tricolor decks encourage high roll.
I think this is somewhat explanatory. The downside to running a tricolor deck is having to include 75 cards, which should, in theory, reduce consistency. However, so many good, standard includes are in the game that 6/75 ends up being more consistent than 3/50, for example. Furthermore, having three colors of uniques, along with two different sets of class cards to work with, really increases the power of tricolors that, except in a few specific cases, running dual color classes is really just hamstringing yourself. And losing to that Ahnassi in hlaalu just feels bad. And losing to that telvanni perfect draw feels bad.
Possible fix? Damage is done unless they rotate out the tricolors. I don't see this happening. I know people have suggested limiting class cards from being included in tricolors, but I don't see that happening. That would definitely help with the 'high roll ability' of tricolors, though.
3. Cards like squish the wimpy aren't fun to play against.
In my opinion, Night Talon Lord shouldn't ever be a viable strategy in high level play. For several years, NTL WASN'T a viable strategy, because it's so slow and greedy. Now, NTL makes sense because NTL + Squish, or Falkreath + Squish to revive a NTL is a winning line. It's not FUN, and it's not INTERACTIVE at all. It reminds me of old ramp scout, which could just win with word wall, word wall, DV, or 7/7 giant bats. And generally, while running sorc, I don't lose to ramp warrior. So it's not that I'm losing a lot of games to this archetype, but it's not fun praying that they don't have the answer. Just like it wasn't fun praying that ramp scout didn't have DV at the right time.
I'm targeting squish here, but other cards like deathpriest, grummite, twilight, meme wraith fall into this category as well. I'm not saying how good or bad these cards are, because in general, they are average or worse. They just aren't FUN to play against.
Possible fix? Increase magicka cost of squish, and have a power limitation just like battle girl does. Why squish has no power limitation blows my mind a little bit. People will still include NTL I'm sure, but at least it won't be game winning play without more ramp involved, which will reduce the consistency of the combo. Delete the others, or at least make them less playable so people realize that they aren't worth including.
4. The abundance of good, playable 2s and catapult decrease deck diversity.
Spend any significant time on ladder and you'll get highrolled by catapult. I've taken advantage of this fact myself quite a bit. It's not always an auto-win situation, but if you have multiple catapults in an aggro mirror match and have the ring, you're more often than not going to steamroll your opponent. Even without ring, cards like catapult and the new dead hound provide a huge comeback potential that wasn't there before. Catapult wasn't so prevalent before because there wasn't such a saturation of good 1/2s, so that activating catapult meant the deck was much weaker when you didn't happen to draw catapult. I personally prefer a more mid-range sorc that doesn't include catapult that controls the board a little more and stalls out the opponent before going to for the kill. This strategy, in a catapult meta, seems straight up worse than just going with the catapults.
Possible fix? Phase out catapults. In the future, more playable 1/2s will just exacerbate the problem.
5. Midrange strategies aren't viable long term on ladder.
I'm not suggesting you can't win at all with midrange decks. I've had success in top 100 with mid mage, as have Ianbits, MattO, and others. I know several people were in top 10 early month with mage. However, over the long term, other archetypes prevail. Hlaalu and Crusader are so fast that midrange decks just can't compete. Furthermore, Tribunal has so much hard removal that, when Trib curves out, playing one big threat a turn just isn't going to cut it. This isn't a problem with the game per se, but it makes the game less fun for ME. My favorite meta was the mid yellow meta we had after the clockwork expansion. I miss that.
Possible fix? No good ones. Removing tricolor would help a bit, but I don't see that happening any time soon.
6. Division in the TESL community
This isn't a problem with the game, it's a problem with us, the players. There is an obvious divide in the community in this game. Some high profile clashes on social media have really made a rift between 'competitive' and 'casual' players. It needs to stop. There is design space for everyone to be happy in this game, and there isn't only one way to enjoy the game. I think there is value in diversity in this game.
There isn't an easy way to discuss this issue without furthering the divide between players. I'll just say that 'competitive' players have a certain perspective on the game because we have personally tested, or know someone who has personally tested, a lot of different strategies (good and bad) in the game. It's not that we outright dismiss cards because they are 'bad,' it's that we understand what synergies are viable strategies in the game. God, it sounds 'elitist' just typing this, but please understand that I'm trying to provide perspective, not encourage more divide in the community. There is still space in both ranked and casual for people to test whatever they want. I'm not saying that all matches should be cookie cutter, but some thought to synergy should be made during deck construction.
Possible fix? Stop fomenting hate against 'competitive' and 'casual' players. Try to take comments on face value, and don't attribute malice when there is none intended. We have a great community, let's try and foster valuable discussions where everyone can learn something, rather than dismissing each other.
I'll see you ladies and gents in twitch chats and discord, but I won't have the pleasure of playing against you all on ladder any time soon. I hope this game continues to grow and succeed financially. The switch in developers was definitely a step in the right direction, even though it slowed card releases quite a bit. The game is better off now, and I'm glad to see it continue to improve.
tl;dr
  1. Matchmaking
  2. Tricolor decks encourage high roll
  3. Cards like squish aren't fun to play against
  4. Abundance of 2s and catapult decrease deck diversity
  5. Mid range decks aren't viable long term
  6. Division in the community
EDIT ---
I appreciate your responses. One thing I'll clarify about playing rank 3 ladder players. Winning against them is not fun either. I made that very clear in my post. I am NOT whining about losing to these players, they should be able to play the game however they want.
The last game I ever played on ladder, I was on aggro sorc and my rank 3 ladder opponent was on some sort of prophecy redoran. I don't know what his deck was because the game was over before I got a great view of it. Anyway, I played a catapult and my opponent hovered it for 20s before making a play, like he had never seen it before. He ended up using a jav, from hand, to kill my catapult. Catapult is so prevalent in the meta that I'm flabbergasted that my opponent has never seen it before.
Needless to say I just completely steamrolled him. That wasn't fun for me, and it surely wasn't fun for them either. I'm not salty about losing to those players. Often, finishing in the top 100 requires winning many more of those types of matches than losing, mostly because of the minimal MMR that they provide. So, please don't make any more of those comments. They add nothing to the conversation, and just lead to more division in the community.
