Fired Anti-Trump Agent Strzok Claims FBI, DOJ Violated His Free Speech, Privacy Rights
Here the little fish, Strozk, Page, Comey, Clapper, Brennan, will all be sacrificed by the big fish they protected like Hillary, Obama, and the other whoppers.
The public wants blood, and the big fish will do everything possible to keep the bloodline south of themselves. This means they will need scapegoats and the need here will be great both in volume and in political power. Therefore, higher-ups like Comey, Clapper, Brennan, and others like Susan Rice will all be on dangerous grounds, not from Trump but the Democrat big fish.

The Equalizer: The Trump era has been good for those with the least economic power.
"For some years there’s been an Internet rumor that Denzel Washington rejects Hollywood’s leftist politics. It’s hard to square with his history of contributing exclusively to Democrats for federal office. But Mr. Washington also has an intriguing habit of deviating from the liberal script on social policy. So perhaps the star of “The Equalizer” can appreciate the Trump era’s benefits for the least powerful in our economy.
Democrats have built their 2020 campaigns around collapsing claims of soaring income inequality and an America in which only the rich are thriving. Holes in their economic analysis and a historically outstanding job market have made it especially hard to stick to their story.
The Democratic pols may now choose to cling, perhaps bitterly, to recent predictions from the Congressional Budget Office. CBO staff guesses that incomes will show increases across the board, but especially for wealthy people, in the five-year period ending in 2021. The problem for Democrats is that just around the time that CBO was rolling out its predictions, new hard data arrived showing that wage gains have lately been especially strong among the non-rich.
The Journal’s Eric Morath and Jeffrey Sparshott report:
Pay for the bottom 25% of wage earners rose 4.5% in November from a year earlier, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. Wages for the top 25% of earners rose 2.9%. Similarly, the Atlanta Fed found wages for low-skilled workers have accelerated since early 2018, and last month matched the pace of high-skill workers for the first time since 2010.
And there’s more:
Labor Department data paint a similar picture. Average hourly earnings for production and nonsupervisory workers in the private sector were up 3.7% in November from a year earlier—stronger than the 3.1% advance for all employees—implying managers and other nonproduction workers saw a 1.6% wage increase in the past year. The department doesn’t produce separate management pay figures.
Beyond wages, Messrs. Morath and Sparshott note that the labor market has lately been especially good for the least educated workers:
The labor market for skilled workers is always tighter, but it hasn’t improved as substantially in recent years. The unemployment rate for high school dropouts fell to 5.3% last month from 7.8% three years earlier. The rate for college grads is down to 2% from 2.4% in November 2016, and is slightly elevated relative to the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Antoine Fuqua, who directed Mr. Washington in “The Equalizer” and a sequel, has expressed a willingness to make another film in the series. Perhaps “Equalizer 3” could be the story of a lone vigilante who raises incomes by mercilessly slashing unnecessary and duplicative federal regulations. No doubt it will be much better than “Cats.”
Over at Forbes, Wayne Crews has already started what could be the rough draft of a screenplay. Mr. Crews notes the annual regulatory tally from the federal government:
The December 31, 2019 Federal Register closed out with 2,964 final rules within its pages.
This is the lowest count since records started being kept in the mid-1970s (that records began at the bicentennial is itself indicative of the disinclination to disclose). Trump’s earlier 2017 count of 3,281 had been the previous best...
It is a notable achievement that all three of the lowest-ever annual rule counts belong to Trump.
This column understands that the graphic nature of this assault on complexity may only be fit for mature non-bureaucratic audiences. But for those who can tolerate depictions of economic revival, there’s an exciting plot twist. Mr. Crews notes that the President’s achievement is even better than it appears “given that some of Trump’s ‘rules’ are rules written to get rid of or replace other rules.”
Imagine a final scene in which Mr. Washington and Mr. Trump slowly walk away from a bonfire of agency guidance memoranda.
Is it too soon to talk about Oscar buzz?"
Tesla Turns to China With U.S. Tax Credit Ending
I wouldn't expect many more SuperChargers to be available in the USA anytime soon.
The US Tesla market, without a huge federal subsidy, will decline rapidly. Perhaps a few of the most idiotically run states like California and Oregon might try to replace the federal subsidy, but most will simply wave goodbye to Tesla. If this is the case, and it looks likely, then Tesla is unlikely to drop much money on SuperCharger stations in the US.
One of the big problems with making money in China is there is very limited ability for the company to get the money out of China. China is the roach motel for product sales. You can make the sales, but you can't get the money out.
