  1. British Columbia is having a 'snap' election. Our premier received the 'writ' dissolving the legislature on September 21. We vote October 24. Does that seem like a pretty short season for an election?
  2. FBI Director Wray: "We certainly have seen very active, very active efforts by the Russians to influence our election in 2020...to both sow divisiveness and discord and...to denigrate Vice President Biden." Today, another statement by the FBI director: Christopher Wray: FBI has not seen evidence of national voter fraud effort by mail Via NBC: That's not what notable election-security elitist Donald J Trump Junior thinks ... Director Wray seems to be speaking directly to Junior ... Insert C-SPAN video of Homeland Security committee hearing
  3. Michael, do you own any of Fenster's books? If so, which one/s? His 2008 revised edition is cited in Joe Uscinski's book.

From Reuters, caution and the view from the banks ... From Buzzfeed, the result of a deep dive into the links. Global financial corruption. Who woulda thunk it? From Memeorandum ...
  8. Oh? That's kind of a passive construction. When will he be replaced, by your reckoning? And why would he be replaced? This doesn't appear to say anything about Russian goals. Please try to stay on topic.
  9. What are some various usages of the term you have discovered? My understanding is that it is shorthand for "biological molecule." In other words, a molecule produced within and by a living organism or cell, like amino acid molecules or molecules such as carbohydrates. It is not "in there," as it turns out. But the extremely promising line of research does of course depend on researchers having identified the 'smallest possible component' of a particular anti-body (a biological product), and used that to construct its drug Ab8. From the abstract of the pre-print:
  10. In re Roger Stone, convicted felon, here's his whole Banned Video episode, in case you don't trust any reporting to capture his actual argument and advice:
