Mornings with the One Percent™ Live Weekdays 7-10am, This Morning’s Replays are Below

Arnold, CA…Mornings with the One Percent™ is live weekday mornings from 7-10am. The premise for the show is that the USDA ranked all 3,142 counties or county equivalents in the USA on a livability or desirability scale based on factors such as climate, scenic beauty, bodies of water for recreation, humidity and much more. All of our area ranked not only in the top one percent but in the top one half of one percent. So in the ups and downs of daily life remember you don’t have to be a Gates, Buffett or Bezos to live like the one percent. Just live here!

Almost 100,000 dead!

The US currently accounts for more than 30% of global coronavirus infections,despite being less than 5 percent the world’s population.

Trump called this a "badge of honor". Disgusting.

      A White House report on global testing — which sources its numbers from Our World in Data — notes that the United States has done more testing than the combined totals of Australia, Austria, Canada, France, India, Italy, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Sweden and the United Kingdom. (That addition checks out.)

      But those are hardly all the world’s “major countries” — let alone “every country.” And to argue the list is exhaustive — especially when Germany and Spain are among Europe’s biggest economies, Russia is obviously a major player on the world stage and when Germany’s robust testing strategy has been credited with its low coronavirus death rate — is absurd, experts said.

      Except for the crucial months of February and March, when the virus was still a hoax.
      Tests in the US were not readily available until midApril. And tests were really only available in certain urban areas.
      The virus is not Trump's fault.
      He has to own his poor response to it.
      93000+ people and their families deserve his admitting a slow response.
      He'd rather throw the CDC, Dr. Fauci, and Dr. Redfield under the bus.

        I think he made plenty of mistakes, but none begin to compare to an utterly failed pandemic response.

      Trump may have begun his presidency by merely raging impotently at critical news coverage, but over time he has figured out some useful pressure points to bring his antagonists to heel.

      He constantly cites CNN’s parent company when attacking its news coverage. He has punished the Washington Post’s owner by withdrawing a $10 billion Pentagon contract.

      He has raged against social-media companies, calling their political orientation “illegal.”

      (“The Radical Left is in total command & control of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Google. The Administration is working to remedy this illegal situation.”)

        The owners of all these firms understand perfectly well what they can do to make their antitrust and contracting problems with Trump’s government disappear. 

        Whatever their current calculus may be on placating Trump’s demand to amplify his propaganda, it will look different should he win a second term.

          It is true that Trump has frequently undercut his ambitions with his ineptitude. Shortly before the pandemic arrived in the United States, conservative economist Tyler Cowen coined a phrase to describe the future of American libertarianism. The phrase he came up with was “State-capacity Libertarianism.”

          He sketched out a worldview that was skeptical of redistribution, hostile to “the polarizing left,” (hence the libertarian part) but eager to expand the government’s ability to efficiently manage infrastructure, control climate change, and other public goods.

          He gave a nod to the influence of Trumpist libertarian Peter Thiel.

            The most dangerous elements of Trump’s anti-democratic agenda are as-yet-unexploded ordnance, which may over time prove either terrifying or meaningless.

            His regular incitements to violence, goading his “tough” supporters in the military, police, and biker gangs to finally take off the gloves, have not yet produced a republic-shaking tragedy.

            And his embrace of Republican vote-suppression logic — he is now threatening to withhold funds from states that allow absentee voting — may, or may not, prevent a free and fair election. These actions are democratic tail risks.

            Like abolishing the pandemic response team, they’re quickly denounced and quickly forgotten, because they probably won’t matter in the end — unless they do matter, in which case their effect will be catastrophic.

              Trump hasn’t stopped, and Barr hasn’t quit. He continues to patiently lay the predicate to criminalize all of Trump’s Deep State enemies, and to exonerate his allies.

              Paul Manafort has skipped to the front of the line and had his sentence reduced to “home confinement” (i.e., what most of us are doing these days anyway).

              The prosecutors of Roger Stone and Michael Flynn have quit after Barr undercut them, and even if Barr’s maneuvers fail, both will likely win pardons.

              The message sent across the bureaucracy is crystal clear.

                William Barr’s reign at the Justice Department has been the most effective fulfillment of Trump’s ambitions.

                Trump’s impulsiveness has certainly impaired Barr’s work by making the ruse so obvious, a fact that Barr has even had to complain about loudly.

                It’s now forgotten, but three months ago, Barr threatened to quit if Trump wouldn’t stop tweeting out demands that the Justice Department become a weapon of vengeance.

          He has likewise disabled congressional oversight. Where previous presidents skirmished over the boundaries and extent of Congress’s authority to probe their administrations, Trump has dismissed it wholesale.

          The fact that Congress has political rivalries with the executive — the very dynamic the Founders intentionally counted on to restrain overreach by any branch of government — is, for Trump, proof that competing branches have no legitimacy.

          “These aren’t, like, impartial people. The Democrats are trying to win 2020,” he said, by way of explaining his blanket refusal to respect any subpoena.

          His apparently successful purge of inspectors general has stripped away yet another layer of accountability.

          It has met the usual response from the GOP: initial scolding from a couple members, followed by silence, followed by a chorus of approval.

          “He is certainly within his authority. He gets to hire and fire under the Constitution all people in the executive branch,” said Mitch McConnell, laying out the party line.

Rather than calling this “attention,” it would be more accurate to say Trump is obsessed with propaganda.

His larger abuses of power are designed for this end: Barr’s purpose is to let Trump depict as many as possible of his foes as criminals. Nobody is really going to get locked up in the end.

    Propaganda was the point of Trump’s almost-successful scheme to pressure Ukraine into announcing an investigation of Joe Biden.

    It is the point of such petty maneuvers as putting Trump’s name on economic-relief checks, or turning the military into a campaign prop, or extorting governors to give him praise that he can use in campaign ads as the price of protection for their states against the coronavirus.

      Trump has delivered in spades on the hostility to the left and to redistribution. (One suspects these are the core demands for most libertarians — certainly they are for Thiel.) The state capacity, not so much.

      The actual governing synthesis Trump has produced could be called “State Incapacity Authoritarianism.”

      State Incapacity Authoritarianism, like its inverse, sounds a bit like an oxymoron.

      But in practice, the pieces fit together well enough. Its key constituents get out of it the things they want most. Trump and his cronies get looting.

      The business class gets lavish tax cuts and self-regulation. Republican believers get to humiliate and defy the liberals.

      You can dismiss it all as lacking “authority,” and you might be right.

      But the truth about authoritarians is that, while they usually promise to make the trains run on time, they often fail to deliver. Making the failure not matter is the point of it.
