9 The Post reported that “people familiar with the matter” say it is possible that “additional evidence” could change prosecutors’ “understanding of the case” but as of now it is unlikely that Mr Gaetz will ever face an indictment.

28 So Hunter got himself in the news again. Always revealing, if you want info on the Biden family idea of "business deals".

In todays installment, John Solomon reports Hunter fronted for Chinese money trying to buy oil and gas leases in the Gulf. Americans can't drill but the Chinese government can. I'm sure the NYT will love that story.

They repaired my ceiling. Still got water leaking into the kitchen and part of the bedroom carpet. I've reported the "management" again to Code Enforcement and have told them that if I don't see some movement on Monday, I'm calling a plumber and taking the charges off the rent. That's legal, I've been told by the lady from the legal foundation who came out with the group on Wed.

I've gotten to the point where I don't care. Mentally I no longer live here. My body stays here; my mind has already moved on. And if Stirling wants to sharpen his claws on the carpet? Go to it, my man!

58 I don't know if it means much, but the DA in Santa Fe was given 317K by the state for trials in the Rust shooting case. DA says she will charge 4 including Alec Baldwin. She has to ask the legislature for 300K more as the state would not give all she asked for. The liberals that populate Sante Fe will never find Baldwin guilty, ever.

I was reading that last night - the really pathetic/disgusting part is that the investigators finally admitted that the problem with their case against Matt Gaetz was that their most important "witness" was a man who had been previously convicted in court of perjury and of filing fake police reports against his political opponents. After 18 months of investigation based on what he was saying, someone finally told them "hey you know you can't put this guy on a witness stand, don''t you?"

143 The "coup in China" appears to be fake; however, I was searching and found a real story about some political opponents of Xi this week.

"Former Vice Public Security Minister Sun Lijun, 53, was given a suspended death sentence with no possibility of parole by a court in Changchun city, Jilin province, state broadcaster China Central Television reported....
While the report made no mention of Sun’s political dealings, the party’s top disciplinary body had previously accused him of “cultivating personal power and forming an interest group.” ... Another two people associated with the group -- former justice minister Fu Zhenghua and Wang Like, who was a senior official in Jiangsu -- were similarly given suspended death sentences Thursday. Three others -- former Shanghai police chief Gong Daoan, former Chongqing police chief Deng Huilin and former Shanxi police chief Liu Xinyun -- received lengthy prison terms on Wednesday."

Her youtube video is posted @76. It's 18 minutes and includes the twatt part. She is skeptical. The rumour is about a week old IN china (see video @89).

Xi missed an important military meeting on Sep 21. Zeng explains this and has pictures from the meeting of two politburo members who attended the meeting AND a general who Xi fired a couple of weeks ago.

But these rumours are constant: search "Xi coup" on youtube and there's something every couple of months.

178 I accidentally made a 18000 online payment to a Chase card instead on 180.00. Chase processed the payment 3x. Hit me with a bounced check fee 3x, then a late fee, because the payment was late by the time I caught the error. Resulted in a 27% penalty rate which they never cleared, I wound up cancelling the card. My bank hit me with overdraft fees 3x plus a bunch of other penalties. It was an obvious error. My card balance was only a couple hundred, and I only had a couple hundred in the bank at the time. They all just laughed a d said there was nothing they could do, policy and all. Be more careful next time. That is when I realized banks exist on the money they scrape from the poor. Now that I have several hundred thousand in the bank, they bend over backwards for me.

IIRC, Zeng said that the death penalty each received is normally reduced to life in prison after a couple of years on death row. This is an important factor for political stability. It allows the factions within the politburo to avoid critical confrontations.

Also implies that a coup has very little bearing on the CCPs foreign policy.

the head of the Oil and Gas association yesterday said (I think he was on Fox) that the release of 1,000,000 BOPD was suppressing oil prices significantly. When this is stopped after the election (which it has to) then gas prices will quickly soar past $5.00 per gallon. Guaranteed.

Posted by: Tom Servo at September 24, 2022 08:14 AM (q3gwH)

198 Oil and natural gas prices will start to rise once the cold weather hits and demand increases. The only potential moderating factor will be the recession and inflation which may lower consumption. Bank on it. The way in which they've currently lowered energy prices is not sustainable. This administration has not changed their mind on major factors such as leases which effect the long term price stability.

257 Here's a little trick our local Kroger's has started; expensive foods like meats, cherries, some cheeses are now prominently labeled with the price per pound, not what the actual cut, bag or slice costs.

My wife picked up a bag of cherries, price was displayed as $4.99. But it was a 3lb bag. I pointed that out to her and she freaked out.

I locked in my electric at 11 cents for 4 years last month.

Do you have to pay a 'distribution fee' on top of that? My utility charges about 12 cents for power generation and another 12 cents as a 'distribution fee' for wire maintenance. So, a total of 24 cents per KwH.

But we have Asplundh working my area about 8 hours a day, seven days a week.

286 BofA is definitely asshoe. In fact I call them "Bank of Assholes".

They wound up with the mortgage on a place I used to own, thanks to the gobbling-up that took place in the late '90s - early 2000 (I don't remember exactly when, because the mortgage got sold to new companies what seemed like 50 times, but probably only 4 or 5).

When I sold the place and paid it off, it took them nearly a year to cut loose the money that was in the escrow account.

Assholes.

That's a nice number. But my entire area is one huge forest. On my street, this year, we've had back to back power outages when a huge branch comes down, knocks out power, and the next day, another branch from the same tree comes down and knocks out power again. That's just two of the six times this year power has gone out due to trees.

I may not believe in global warming but I'm beginning to wonder if extra CO2 is making these trees outperform their ability to stand.

If Xi Jinping has disposed of his main domestic political adversaries, it's the exact opposite of a coup. But whatever the status of Xi himself now, clearly an upheaval is taking place within the Byzantine structure of mafia-like clans and political cliques that has always ruled China.

Also likely related: there have been seven fires in the capital of Hunan Province, the largest destroying a telecom building that looks like it may have been a server hub:
