Atlanta Fed Forecasts a Thirty Two Percent Growth Rate in the Third Quarter, with the GDP Numbers to be Released Right Before the Election, October 29

That is in fact the forecast:

The Atlanta Fed models the forward GDP for the 3rd quarter. It's current estimate comes in at 32%. That is up from 31.7% yesterday.

In their own words:

The GDPNow model estimate for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the third quarter of 2020 is 32.0 percent on September 17, up from 31.7 percent on September 16. After this morning's housing starts report from the U.S. Census Bureau, the nowcast of third-quarter real residential investment growth increased from 39.3 percent to 46.1 percent.

The next estimate will come on September 25.

The New York Fed's forecast is lower -- but still high. They're forecasting an (annualized) quarterly growth of 15.63%, about half of what Atlanta forecasts.

Still, given that a quarterly growth of 4% is considered strong growth, anything from 15% to 32% will be... acceptable.

Quarter over quarter, which makes it less impressive that it reads, but it basically means that Trump was right...again...and that opening things up will allow most of the economy to come back.

Some businesses are screwed by the extended shutdowns. Restaurants and what-not. Others are screwed by the riots. But the demand is still there so business will return, even if it isn't to those people.

My parents mentioned in the last post are a good example of not catching up to politics or the truth. Most Americans are busy or set in their ways, and distracted but eventually people do, as a collective, figure things out.

Many are at that state now with Trump. Either they weakly voted for him in the last election, or they now see the light.

The left base will always be the rabid base. And worse now, so I imagine it will continue to shrink. They know this too that is why they want illegals voting, mail in fraud and felons being able to vote. Anything they can do to beef up the voter base because it is shrinking.

I have a lot of hope now.

Mayor Bill de Blasio promised a decision "very soon" on whether and how to let restaurants continue offering outdoor dining throughout the colder temps.

"In fact, it's on the agenda - I think even later on today - to try and resolve that. We're going to work with the city agencies, with the state," de Blasio told reporters during a City Hall press briefing Tuesday.

De Blasio said he wants "to see what we can do to address" the possibility of extending outdoor dining throughout the fall and winter "fairly" because "I want to give every possible opportunity to our restaurants to succeed and survive."

I'm just gonna say it, because I'm gonna say it. Most people.. I don't care who, get really sick and tired of women telling them what to do all the time.

This sureness we see from some of these crazy bints is VERY off-putting. When the barmaid gets all uppity, most people don't like it. When Cummala gets that smug look on her face, almost everyone at least THINKS about slapping it off.

And yeah, I think the feeling is even more intense, when said bint is an Of Color woman. Sorry, you just haven't earned it yet, baby.

I think this is going to show up in the polls, even though no one will admit it.

recruited to do exactly what he's done, and on the timetable that its
happened.
Between the world wide pedo rings, drug rat lines, corruption
and money laundering, I'm inclined to think there was a cadre of good

A pro-Antifa "journalist" in Portland, who unusually for Antifa has very nice elbows, decided she isn't going to riots anymore because the people there are so toxic.

She states:

I've seen this transpire in a few different instances... mainly when someone calls out misogyny, homophobia, and swoop troops. Idk. My 2 cents on things I've witnessed and things that could help the community as a whole if addressed. I don't have answers but talking is a start

Oops - she is immediately denounced and apologizes:

I just want to whole heartedly apologize for not including transphobia in this thread. I don't have any screenshots 4 examples, but if u trust me, I've witnessed it first hand way more than I should be able to admit. Knock it off. Do we really need to talk about intersectionality

She continues to be attacked for genocidally ignoring trans people, and responds:

he was afraid of a lot of things.

Whatever
non-contrived demographic you pick, regardless of whatever they might
emote in public, probably most of them are kinda a little worried about
sh*t getting out of control, in a "sh*t just got real" sense. My guess
is that there are perhaps a plurality of such people who may mentally
associate terrible things to Trump, but from 2017 until just before
Spring Training 2020, they were living in boom times in pretty much
every sense of the word and that's their safe space.

Living
in boom times essentially dissociates their paradigm political fears
from themselves -- it's abstract, not visceral. What's visceral is the
boom times. They need to go there and conclave there until they can
figure out how to make Shiny Happy People Land actually work without
going through the Burning Times. THESE people can't get there at this
time and they *won't* get there if they don't survive to the next
opportunity. They may hate Trump, they may loathe the mere mention of
his name, but are learning that the enemy of my enemy is not always my
friend, and the are getting that lesson, which they insisted they
wanted, good and hard. They want a do-over. They don't get a do-over
in "one-man-one-vote-one-time land" and they are realizing that.

Democrat Joe Biden leaves little doubt that if elected he would try to scale back President Donald Trump's buildup in nuclear weapons spending. And although the former vice president has not fully detailed his nuclear priorities, he says he would make the U.S. less reliant on the world's deadliest weapons.

China, whose relatively small nuclear force is growing in sophistication, is cited by the Pentagon's top nuclear commander as a leading reason why the United States should go all out on nuclear modernization.

248 @196
some of these swing states have lower-level judges ruling that ballots can be accepted after the deadline set forth in the state's OWN LAWS.
That's a problem--the judges can't decide its "such an emergency" that voting laws are suspended. It didn't work during the Civil War, and it shouldn't work now (and this is basically what the USSC decided in Bush v Gore--you can't make up voting law on the fly)
But I'll bet a dollar that a John Roberts court was going to uphold it, the same way they "upheld" the church restrictions recently. That decision was laying the groundwork so they could rule their hands were similarly tied when it came to means of voting

That's why RBG's death announcement is such a disaster for them, and that's what makes me think they didn't plan on it.

There's geographic divides. Aside from the coasts(which have large mountain ranges cutting them off), most of the US is what you'd expect a country to look like. Large regions with few stumbling blocks are typically united by would-be conquerors over short time frames.

Seriously I have never seen so many yard signs over all and 5) I got a stupid mailer with a Christine Blasey Ford look alike, teary concern and all and the caption I'm so concerned the Dems have gone too far left (on the back Biden, Harris, screening! Bernie and a few others) - seriously not the kind of stuff a confident left would be sending out. Never seen anything like it. Its clear that there will be TDS votes but if Trump looses I'll never be convinced Dems didn't cheat/ steal it.

Trump/Republicans need to shut this shit down now in all of these states who have decided to rewrite election laws.

Posted by: TheQuietMan



All of the state rulings I've seen is that they are stretching the limits on how long after the election they can count the ballots that they've already received. I've not seen a ruling that says they can keep counting ballots RECEIVED for weeks after the election. An important distinction.

Remember, in Michigan in 2016, Jill Stein called for a complete audit of the ballots that were cast.

The DemonRats shut that shit down fast, once all the fraudulent ballots started being revealed.

Trump's crew will make sure to call or a complete impound of all ballots cast on election day, a complete accounting of every single box of ballots that arrive after 11/3, and call for recounts of all ballots received AFTER the election.

There is a way to beat this ballot harvesting shit. You have to have boots on the ground in every single precinct and be willing to stay and count until your fingers fall off.

350 Democrat Joe Biden leaves little doubt that if elected he would try to scale back President Donald Trump's buildup in nuclear weapons spending. And although the former vice president has not fully detailed his nuclear priorities, he says he would make the U.S. less reliant on the world's deadliest weapons.

China, whose relatively small nuclear force is growing in sophistication, is cited by the Pentagon's top nuclear commander as a leading reason why the United States should go all out on nuclear modernization.

The South was pretty clear about its cause for war being slavery. The North was also fairly clear about its cause for war being keep the union intact.

What I'm finding particularly depressing is that these stupid kids see it as a new and trendy fashion accessory.

Living in CA, all the clothing stores are still shuttered, but I have no doubt that there's plenty of high-fashion masks making their way to the catwalk at this very moment.

I've had several people comment on my mask, which really bums me out. A friend's daughter sewed it up for me, but damn, I'd burn it in a hot second - and hope I can. These things are never going away.

400 That's a problem--the judges can't decide its "such an emergency" that voting laws are suspended. It didn't work during the Civil War, and it shouldn't work now (and this is basically what the USSC decided in Bush v Gore--you can't make up voting law on the fly)
But I'll bet a dollar that a John Roberts court was going to uphold it, the same way they "upheld" the church restrictions recently. That decision was laying the groundwork so they could rule their hands were similarly tied when it came to means of voting

That's why RBG's death announcement is such a disaster for them, and that's what makes me think they didn't plan on it.

Posted by: Blago at September 22, 2020 05:44 PM (gkdnV)


Slavery ended in Europe because it was never fully part of the economy the way it was in the South, or in other parts of the world. The slave trade was largely Mediterrainean in nature, starting with the Greeks and Romans and shifting to the muslim countries. That's different than the South, where economic and cultural life centered around the cotton and tobacco economy. Slaves were an integral part of Southern society and you weren't going to get rid of them without massive disruption to the southern economic and political elite who profited off those industries.

Posted by: Citizen Cake at September 22, 2020 05:26 PM (HmZuC)

Almost at once, likely enough. Causes for instant friction:

Fugitive Slaves would now have "Canada" hundreds of miles closer and no fugitive slave law requiring them be sent back.

The South wanted to expand into the Caribbean, basically at once. This would bump right into the Monroe Doctrine.

One trigger for the South was that Federal Mails were routinely searched by Southern states for anti-slavery information to suppress it. Come Lincoln, the spoils system would create many many jobs in the South for either imported or converted Republicans who would not violate Federal law to do this.

Once the Rs were planted in the South in any way, Slavery would be on the table in local politics.

Slavery was a solution to a social problem that took a century or more to work itself out without slavery. Even in 1860 you could see the difference in efficiency of North versus South, but they clung even harder to Slavery all the same.

One of the compromise efforts before the war was to compensate for slaves. As Lincoln said, war is a lot more expensive.

It didn't go very far, as neither side was interested - the North didn't want to pay and the South wanted the slaves.

Posted by: Sharkman at September 22, 2020 05:39 PM (BM2fS)

Nukes paired with a memory of what the war was like. For the next 40-50 years most countries were run by people who knew what even a conventional all out war would look like and wanted nothing to do with it.

But yes, nuclear weapons were absolutely helpful in that regard.
