Biden Administration

“Disasters divert Biden’s fall agenda” [Politico]. • Wait. Biden had an agenda? I imply, past fomenting conflict with a nuclear energy and instituting eugenics because the baseline for public well being coverage?

AZ: “Rep. Liz Cheney Says Arizona GOP Candidates Threaten Democracy” [HuffPo]. “Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney on Wednesday mentioned the Republican candidates for Arizona governor and secretary of state pose an enormous threat for democracy as a result of each say they’ll refuse to certify election outcomes in the event that they don’t just like the outcomes….Cheney additionally leveled broadsides as what she mentioned was a rising “Putin wing” of the Republican Occasion who need America to withdraw from the world stage and refuse to defend freedom in different nations.”

NV: “Democrats’ Troubles in Nevada Are a Microcosm of Nationwide Headwinds” [New York Times]. “The Culinary Employees Union members who’re knocking on doorways to get out the vote are on the cursed-at entrance strains of the Democratic Occasion’s midterm battle. Most voters don’t open their doorways. And when some do reply, the canvassers would possibly want they hadn’t. ‘You assume I’m going to vote for these Democrats in spite of everything they’ve accomplished to damage the financial system?’ a voter shouted one night final week from her entryway in a working-class neighborhood of East Las Vegas. Miguel Gonzalez, a 55-year-old chef who described himself as a conservative Christian who has voted for Republicans for many of his life, was extra well mannered however no extra satisfied. ‘I don’t agree with something Democrats are doing in any respect,’ he mentioned after taking a fistful of fliers from the union canvassers. Those that know Nevada finest have at all times seen its blue-state standing as one thing befitting a desert: a type of mirage. Democrats are literally a minority amongst registered voters, and a lot of the occasion’s victories within the final decade had been narrowly determined. However the state has lengthy been a symbolic linchpin for the occasion — important to its nationwide coalition and its maintain on the blue West. Now, Democrats in Nevada are dealing with potential losses up and down the poll in November and bracing for a seismic shift that might assist Republicans win management of each homes of Congress. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto stays one of the weak Democratic incumbents within the nation. Gov. Steve Sisolak is preventing his most formidable challenger but. And the state’s three Home Democrats may all lose their seats.” • I suppose the brilliant facet can be that the Reid machine will likely be cleaned out ultimately. But it surely’s extra possible it is going to be extra highly effective than ever.

Democrats en Déshabillé

Affected person readers, it appears that evidently individuals are truly studying the back-dated publish! However I’ve not up to date it, and there are a lot of updates. So I should do this. –lambert

I’ve moved my standing remarks on the Democrat Occasion (“the Democrat Occasion is a rotting corpse that may’t bury itself”) to a separate, back-dated publish, to which I’ll periodically add materials, summarizing the addition right here in a “reside” Water Cooler. (Hopefully, some Bourdieu.) It seems that defining the Democrat Occasion is, the truth is, a tough downside. I do assume the paragraph that follows is on level all the way in which again to 2016, if not earlier than:

The Democrat Occasion is the political expression of the category energy of PMC, their base (lucidly defined by Thomas Frank in Pay attention, Liberal!). ; if the Democrat Occasion didn’t exist, the PMC must invent it. . (“PMC” modulo “class expatriates,” after all.) Second, all of the working components of the Occasion reinforce one another. Go away apart characterizing the relationships between components of the Occasion (ka-ching, however not solely) these components comprise a community — a Flex Web? An iron octagon? — of funders, distributors, apparatchiks, electeds, NGOs, and miscellaneous mercenaries, with property within the press and the intelligence group.

Word, after all, that the category energy of the PMC each expresses and is restricted by different lessons; oligarchs and American gentry (see ‘industrial mannequin’ of Ferguson, Jorgensen, and Jie) and the working class spring to thoughts. Suck up, kick down.

“Transcript of Speaker Pelosi’s Remarks at Weekly Press Convention” [Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House]. ” Proper now, the most effective factor that we will do for our financial system is to have complete immigration reform. We have now a scarcity of employees in our nation, and also you see even in Florida among the farmers and the growers saying, ‘Why are you transport these immigrants up north? We want them to select the crops down right here.’” • Oh.

Republican Funhouse

Trump Legacy

“Is There Something That Will Make the ‘Former Man’ Go Away?” [New York Times]. Betteridge’s Regulation applies. Nonetheless, a dialog between Gail Collins and Bret Stephens: “[Bret:] My predominant downside with most G.O.P. hopefuls is that they’re what I’ve come to name ‘one-sheep Republicans.’ Undecided if I would like to elucidate — Gail: Oh, let your self go. Bret: It’s a reference to an previous joke about an previous man whose lifetime of fine deeds on behalf of his little village is undone on account of a single unlucky second of ardour with a woolly companion. The purpose is that a lot as I favor most Republican coverage proposals on stuff like regulation and taxes, the refusal to forthrightly settle for the outcomes of the final election is their sheep. Gail: Bret, every time I have a look at a Republican on TV, I’ll now see a bit fluffy creature baa-ing softly within the nook. Thanks.” • Gotta respect the meme-age, however yikes.

Realignment and Legitimacy

“A Dose of Rational Optimism” (overview) [Dissent]. Evaluate of Brad DeLong’s Slouching In the direction of Utopia: An Financial Historical past of the Twentieth Century. “Humanity, the Berkeley economist argues, spent practically everything of its historical past condemned to poverty by an inadequate provide of energy and a chronically extreme beginning fee. However within the “lengthy twentieth century”—the interval between 1870 and 2010—an virtually miraculous transformation occurred: increasingly more individuals lived longer, more healthy, extra affluent lives than ever earlier than. Arenas of mind and inventive expression that had been as soon as accessible solely to probably the most privileged of elites turned the widespread experiences of mass cultures. People didn’t discover utopia, DeLong argues, however we stumbled in its normal course. Within the grim morass that has adopted the monetary disaster of 2008, it’s refreshing to obtain a dose of rational optimism—nonetheless tempered—from a severe mental inspecting our place within the grand scheme of historical past. DeLong doesn’t avert his readers’ eyes from the brutalities of imperial conquest, genocide, and revolution gone awry, which outline the political milieu of the period below his microscope. However his narrative is basically hopeful: individuals can accomplish wonderful issues on a colossal scale. Not that way back, we did so on a regular basis. This attitude is refreshing exactly as a result of everybody, DeLong included, is aware of that one thing has gone terribly improper.” • Possibly I not less than have to present this ebook the random opening take a look at.

“The most typical restaurant delicacies in each state, and a chain-restaurant thriller” [WaPo]. “When Clio Andris and Xiaofan Liang gave us early entry to the newest replace of their pleasant knowledge on chain eating places, they already had recognized its most compelling thriller: Locations that assist Donald Trump additionally are likely to have probably the most franchise meals. However why? It seems ‘the foodscape may be very political,’ mentioned Liang, a PhD candidate at Georgia Tech’s College of Metropolis & Regional Planning. ‘Locations with a excessive proportion of Trump voters have a better proportion of chains. We didn’t anticipate it.’ Chain eating places — these ubiquitous monuments to company consistency, from Applebee’s to Arby’s, Olive Backyard to Pizza Hut — are commonest in Kentucky, West Virginia and Alabama. They’re rarest in Vermont, Alaska and Hawaii. Maine, New York and D.C. additionally are likely to have fewer chains.” • The map:

#COVID19

Affected person readers: Holy moley, the Walgreens website got here alive once more! That makes me really feel lots much less mournful in regards to the state of our knowledge, since we now have some checks on CDC (variants and positivity).

Tomorrow, nonetheless, I do CDC’s Speedy Riser and Hospitalization charts for the final time, because the interagency hairball that publishes them goes to weekly publication on Friday, and I don’t assume that’s frequent sufficient to be helpful. Too dangerous they couldn’t have waited till after vacation journey, however there we’re. The case counts are undercounts, but it surely appears to be they’re the most effective we’ve got. I’m not positive, nonetheless, that “the most effective we’ve got” is sweet sufficient.

Since case counts, hospitalization, and deaths all correlate, I believe we will agree there was no back-to-school surge in September. Dropping positivity reinforces that. What worries me, nonetheless, is the emergence of a brand new, vaccine-escaping variant, earlier than or throughout the holidays. I’m reluctant to rely solely variant knowledge for this, since variant knowledge is de facto laggy (not sufficient labwork quick sufficient). Wastewater knowledge helps right here, however CDC protection is de facto patchy, and in any case I need a test on them. What worries me is that “consultants say” that what occurs within the UK occurs within the US a few month later; and the UK is having a surge. I’m open to solutions from readers on easy methods to deal with that, and for sources with which to revise this part (and, by the way, save myself a while so I can write extra in regards to the financial system below Stats, which is uncared for). Ought to I abandon case counts solely, for instance? Since Johns Hopkins is mumbling about slicing them again? Give attention to extra native sources for wastewater? Readers, ideas?

• “As soon as Identified for Vaccine Skeptics, Marin Now Tells Them ‘You’re Not Welcome’” [New York Times]. The deck: “The rich California county simply north of San Francisco has one of many nation’s highest Covid-19 vaccination charges after years of being recognized for fogeys who opposed photographs for childhood ailments.” • ”They had been careless individuals, Tom and Daisy — they smashed up issues and creatures after which retreated again into their cash or their huge carelessness or no matter it was that stored them collectively, and let different individuals clear up the mess that they had made.” — F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Nice Gatsby.

• “CDC: Maintain Household From Catching Your Covid By Isolating In A Separate Room” [Forbes]. Now they inform us. An “Editor’s Decide,” no much less. “A new CDC examine reveals that isolating in separate rooms considerably lowered the percentages of SARS-CoV-2 transmission between family members. Isolating in separate rooms proved to be the simplest mitigation measure towards onward SARS-CoV-2 virus transmission no matter age, gender, vaccination standing, and different threat elements. Whereas vaccination was discovered to cut back the chance of an infection, it didn’t seem to cut back transmission throughout the family. Each vaccinated (main vaccination sequence) and unvaccinated adults and youngsters with various demographic elements had been discovered to transmit the virus at related charges. The examine serves as a reminder that we should always not ignore public well being and nonmedical interventions corresponding to masking and isolating, whilst mandates are dropping and far of the world is experiencing fatigue.” • Curiously, though the CDC examine linked to has many CDC authors, it was printed at Open Discussion board Infectious Ailments, not at Morbidity and Mortality Weekly report.

Case Rely

Case rely for america:

Circumstances are undercounted, one supply saying by an element of six, Gottlieb considering we solely choose up one in seven or eight.) Therefore, I take the nominal case rely and multiply it by six to approximate the true stage of instances, and draw the DNC-blue “Biden Line” at that time. The earlier rely was ~43,300. In the present day, it’s ~40,721 and 40,721 * 6 = a Biden line at 244,326. (Keep in mind these knowledge factors are weekly averages, so every day fluctuations are smoothed out.) The black “Fauci Line” is a counter to triumphalism, because it compares present ranges to previous crises. Should you have a look at the Fauci line, you will note that regardless of the bleating and yammering about Covid being “over,” we’ve got solely only recently reached the (nominal) case stage of the primary surge in New York, within the spring of 2020 (after which the Instances printed the pictures of the 100,000 who died, contemplating that a big quantity, because it was on the time).

Regional case rely for 4 weeks:

The South:

Most likely it can prove that each one Florida’s information had been destroyed by Hurricane Ian, what a disgrace.

The South (minus Texas and Florida):

Frankly. the regular drop amongst all this smallish Southern states collectively offers me extra hope than anything.

The West:

This drop is the rationale the nationwide figures dropped. Each time there’s been a drop this huge, it’s been revised away.

Wastewater

Wastewater knowledge (CDC), October 2:

Lambert right here: I’m happy to see that there at the moment are some reside websites in New York Metropolis.

For grins, September 1:

An alert reader steered looking at the MWRA knowledge from the Boston space, and lo and behold:

Lambert right here: Each North and South sewer methods confirmed a slight drop.

It is a seven-day common, thoughts you, so the rise isn’t any fluke. (MRWA is split into north and south sewersheds. Each are rising.) Allow us to additionally keep in mind that the Boston space isn’t solely the house of many, many college students, it’s additionally a PMC heart, and we’ve got already seen one ginormous superspreader occasion from the convention in Boston. Boston additionally has a significant worldwide airport, one other reason behind unfold.

Positivity

UPDATED From the Walgreen’s take a look at positivity tracker, October 4:

0.4%. Nonetheless encouraging.

Readers, please click on via on this, when you have a minute. Since Walgreens did the precise factor, let’s give this venture some stats.

Transmission

NOTE: I shall most definitely not be utilizing the CDC’s new “Group Stage” metric. As a result of CDC has mixed a number one indicator (instances) with a lagging one (hospitalization) their new metric is a poor warning signal of a surge, and a poor method to assess private threat. As well as, Covid is a illness you don’t need to get. Even in case you are not hospitalized, you possibly can endure from Lengthy Covid, vascular points, and neurological points. For these causes, case counts — recognized to be underestimated, resulting from house take a look at kits — deserve to face alone as a quantity to be tracked, regardless of how a lot the political operatives in CDC management want to obfuscate it. That the “inexperienced map” (which Topol calls a “capitulation” and a “deception”) remains to be up and being taken severely verges on the prison. Use the group transmission instantly beneath.

Right here is CDC’s interactive map by county set to group transmission. (That is the map CDC desires solely hospitals to have a look at, not you.)

Lambert right here: I’ve to say, I’m seeing extra yellow and extra blue, which continues to please. However is the pandemic “over”? Nicely….

Speedy Riser knowledge, by county (CDC), October 4:

Earlier Speedy Riser knowledge:

Hospitalization knowledge, by state (CDC), October 4:

See the NOTE beneath. It’s mind-boggling that this report is being in the reduction of at a time when hospitalization is rising within the Northeast. I imply, I believed hospitalization was what these guys cared about?

NOTE: From CDC: “Efficient September 23, 2022, the Group Profile Report will solely be up to date as soon as every week, on Fridays. We apologize for any inconvenience attributable to the delayed add for 09/30/2022.” At prime proper, the Obtain is labeled “Up to date: October 4, 2022.” The file title: “Community_Profile_Report_20220929.pfd.” Even within the smallest issues, CDC simply lies and lies. To be honest, this file is de facto produced by “an interagency workforce with representatives from a number of businesses and workplaces (together with america Division of Well being and Human Companies, the Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention, the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, and the Indian Well being Service. In order that they’re all mendacity, not simply the CDC. “The way in which to manage and direct a mentat, Nefud, is thru his data. False data–false outcomes”. -Baron Harkonnen.

Variants

Lambert right here: It’s past irritating how gradual the variant knowledge is. I regarded for extra charts: California doesn’t to a BA.4/BA.5 breakdown. New York does but it surely, too, is on a molasses-like two-week cycle. Does no one within the public well being institution get a promotion for monitoring variants? Are there no grants? Is there a single lab that does this work, and everyone will get the outcomes from them? Further sources from readers welcome [grinds teeth, bangs head on desk].

UPDATED Variant knowledge, nationwide (Walgreens), September 24:

Nonetheless no signal of BA.2.75 at Walgreens, regardless of its look in CDC knowledge beneath.

Variant knowledge, nationwide (CDC), September 10 (Nowcast off):

Deaths

Loss of life fee (Our World in Knowledge):

Complete: 1,086,685 – 1,085,366 = 1319 (1319 * 365 = 481,435, which is as we speak’s LivingWith™* quantity (fairly a bit greater than the minimizers would love, although they’ll speak themselves into something. Fluctuates fairly a bit, however even the low numbers are dangerous). I’ve added an anti-triumphalist black Fauci Line.

It’s good that for deaths I’ve a easy, every day chart that simply retains chugging alongside, not like all the pieces else CDC and the White Home are screwing up or letting go darkish, good job.

“The Case for Cats” [The Atlantic]. “If I’m being fully sincere, possibly it’s the feline persona that’s my private catnip. My cats are simply as cuddly as any canine I’ve ever had—in all probability extra. They’re affectionate and personable; they arrive working once we name; they greet us on the door. And each cat I’ve met has been such a definite particular person, such a personality: bursting with sturdy opinions, clear-cut preferences, weird and memorable quirks. And people traits are steadfast. Whether or not they’re scared, pleased, suspicious, or confused, Calvin and Hobbes are at all times Calvin and Hobbes. I get that cats can generally be contrarian. I get that their outer shell can generally be powerful to crack. However for me, that makes all of them the extra fascinating. Their belief and affection is hard-won. So when it’s earned, it feels that rather more significant.” • I like my ruthlessly environment friendly little predator….

Well being Care

Medicare for All? Why?

I used to be on the periphery of the final main push for single payer, the place “Medicare for All” turned the speaking level as a result of (it was felt) “single payer” was too technical, and looking back I believe the rebranding was a mistake. Too many individuals have had dangerous experiences with Medicare having been crapified, and in any case Medicare Benefit is hollowing out Medicare correct from the within. After which the “For All” half, meant to suggest enchancment, received misplaced within the shuffle. After which the liberal Democrats received Joe Biden in, and he anesthetized all the pieces. So it goes.

On the Topeka Gun & Knife Present: “I step out of the present as a substitute, previous a cheerful blonde with a U.S. flag and a poster that claims, “Register to vote.” Subsequent to her, a uniformed police officer is posted, and I acknowledge her. She typically gives safety at our church, which makes me consider a time — not that way back — when none of us nervous about shooters storming into worship providers with semi-automatic weapons that fireside as much as 60 bullets a minute, exploding organs. How unusual to see her right here now, offering safety for gun patrons in a middle named for a hospital. On the exit, I as soon as once more go the small sq. indicators that present crossed-out handguns, and I understand that the final time I used to be right here, a dozen hard-working nurses had been receiving the gang, protecting the COVID-19 vaccine syringes going, ensuring we had been all safer and fewer more likely to die.”

Class Warfare

“Alabama Paper Mill Employees Need Their Lives Again — And They’re Giving Up $30,000 To Get It” [The Real News]. “Within the morning of Oct. 1, after a 50-hour voting interval, virtually 500 union members from three United Metal Employees (USW) locals at WestRock’s Mahrt Mill paper mill in Cottonton, Alabama, voted to reject a second contract provide from the corporate. The refusal to ratify WestRock’s ‘final, finest, and last’ provide got here because of the corporate insisting on eradicating contract language pertaining to what the employees there name ‘penalties’ for lengthy hours. Members resoundingly rejected this contract, though it included an unheard-of $28,000 ratification bonus—elevated from an already staggering provide of $20,000, which employees already rejected on Sept. 21. Members resoundingly rejected this contract, though it included an unheard-of $28,000 ratification bonus—elevated from an already staggering provide of $20,000, which employees already rejected on Sept. 21. The penalties in query embrace time-and-a-half pay on Sundays (which turns into double time if an worker was already at or above 40 hours for the week), and time-and-a-half pay retroactively utilized for one’s complete shift if mentioned shift goes over 16 hours (what’s generally known as ‘Hog Regulation’ within the trade).” • Not simply the signing bonus; time-and-a-half (!). Commentary:

“Why are we so afraid to control?” [Worcester Sucks and I Love It]. “The vocabulary itself is a buffer towards reform. So if I precisely described the demand The Worcester Collectively Inexpensive Housing Coalition made at a rally Wednesday—to change a draft inclusionary zoning ordinance in order that the required 10 p.c of income-restricted items in new developments can be set to accommodate households making 60 p.c of the world median earnings as a substitute of 80 p.c, because it’s at the moment written—it looks like I’m talking in some form of overseas language. The individuals who stand to achieve from the established order this language perpetuates are fairly fluent—the builders, the hedge fund managers, the attorneys and the Metropolis Corridor individuals who work with (for?) them. They know what I’m saying! Alternatively, the individuals who stand to lose—actually, anybody who lives right here and makes lower than $100,000 a 12 months—couldn’t be blamed for having no concept what any of meaning. Should you’re not a housing advocate or work in public coverage or a bizarre nerd (me), why the hell would you trouble to be taught this impossibly boring language? Sensible insurance policies that might have actual common enchantment are thus buried behind a fog of inscrutability. It’s simply so arduous to craft a compelling message. So I suppose one of the simplest ways to kick off my try at such a message is to cite the one individual in historical past to give you an excellent one: Jimmy McMillan, who famously mentioned in no unsure phrases that the hire is simply too rattling excessive.”
