Biden inheriting nonexistent coronavirus vaccine distribution plan and must start 'from scratch,' sources say
https://edition.cnn.com/2021/01/21/poli ... index.html

Too much golf.

This may actually be good news. Given that they were both incompetent and evil, the less infrastructure the Trump “team” put in place, the less there is to scrap before starting afresh. “Scratch” is sometimes a hard place to reach.

I struggle with CNN. They seem to have caught something from bearish.

CNN has changed gears; they are in feigning and fawning mode. Unbecomimg.

Look, the spin is going to be dramatic for awhile, all around.

These are the sources I am going to right now - it's more time consuming, but at least tells you actual actions and votes.

Certainly statements and press releases from The White House are deeply crafted and nuanced (I have worked on teams like that), but even so - you are getting the words from the horse's mouth  - not an emotional anchor person.

The White House.gov
U.S. Senate
U.S. Congress
U.S. Supreme Court
Regulations.gov

Watching: Environment (Arctic National Wildlife Refuge esp.), Immigration, Coronavirus, Economics/Fed, and Con Law, in particular.

It is also easy to find lists of Biden's first few days of actions, of course - just read between the lines for yourself.

If you find any media sources on either side of the Atlantic that you think are fair, balanced, and as rigorously truthful as possible, I'd be curious to see them.

Back to vacation now though - enjoy your weekends!

So, after Biden begins, of course the expected alt-right rioting continues. Oh wait, it is actually the radical left.  How inconvenient for the narrative! I guess some people just can't take 'yes' for an answer.  :D

Question: I dare not ask, but what about the golf schedule?

Joe Biden,left, and Enda Kenny at Castlebar Golf Club in Co Mayo. They halved the match on the 18th green
2016.

His body language suggests he pushed that putt a bit wide.

I bet it was a bunch of Berkeley left-wing agitators.

Hehe. So, apparently one of the rioters' demands is the abolishment of ICE. All in favor raise their hands.

I don't think his glee was palpable exactly. He had a Royal Flush, he knew he was going to win. It's still nice. But he knew he was going to win the moment he was dealt it, not when the other hands were revealed. Not my best analogy.

But it's fascinating what other people see in internet posts.

I see bearish with long, greasy hair (perhaps not as much as before), in his grey underwear, sitting in front of a spittle-flecked monitor, talking to himself. 

Which is fine, it's Covid, we are all sitting in front of monitors in our underwear. Mine are dark blue is all.

Another resource for the Biden-Harris Library:

The New York Fed - Markets and Policy Implementation

Statements, data, research reports, and more!

Here is a hand picked selection for you: Measuring Corporate Bond Market Dislocations - Number 957, January 2021

Just for the record, I am wearing soft black yoga pants and a cerulean blue t-shirt from LL Bean. Comfortable! 

Happy reading!

I object! Not only am I sporting a closely cropped homemade haircut, but I invariably wear shorts while hanging out in the apartment.
