OK, not really ... but as I write this, Tropical Storm Nicole (formerly Hurricane Nicole) is supposedly closing in on my house with high winds, etc., so there's a chance I'll lose electricity/Internet access today. When that happens, it's anybody's bet how long it takes for things to get restored, so Friday's edition MAY be web-only, without an email to let you know. Thanks in advance for your patience.

And THANK YOU to long-time supporter/"subscribing contributor" JR, whose $25 yesterday brings our year-end fundraiser total (as of 6am Eastern this morning) to $1,773.50!

That means we're only $801.50 short of our $5,150 goal!

If my math looks bad, it isn't: Once we've raised $2,575, supporter GL will "match funds" in the amount of the other half.

But first we have to get to $2,575, so please support the freedom movement's daily newspaper at:

https://news.rationalreview.com/support-rrnd

Suggested donations? Well, $801.50 sounds great! Or how about $5.60, $56, or $560 in celebration of me turning 56 today? But any amount you think accurately reflects the value you receive from our publication will do just fine. That URL again:

Source: Sky News [UK]

"Russian troops have been ordered to withdraw from the city of Kherson and surrounding areas in the south of Ukraine. Russia's top commander in Ukraine, General Sergei Surovikin, said it is no longer possible to supply the city and other parts of the west bank of the Dnipro River that it sits on. In televised comments, he said: 'We will save the lives of our soldiers and fighting capacity of our units. Keeping them on the right [western] bank is futile. Some of them can be used on other fronts.' ... The announcement marks one of Russia's most significant retreats and another humiliating setback for Vladimir Putin."

2)  Recreational marijuana approved in Maryland and Missouri but rejected in two other states
Source: Los Angeles Times

"Voters approved recreational marijuana in Maryland and Missouri, signaling gradually growing support for legalized pot even in conservative parts of the country, but similar measures were rejected in Arkansas and North Dakota. Tuesday's partial election results mean that at least 21 states have now approved marijuana's recreational use. A similar initiative went before voters in South Dakota, but it was too early to call early Wednesday. ... About 6 in 10 voters support legalizing the recreational use of marijuana nationwide, according to VoteCast, an extensive survey of more than 90,000 voters nationwide conducted for the Associated Press by NORC at the University of Chicago."

The French President travelled to a naval base at Toulon in South France to make the announcement. The development comes after the French soldiers withdrew from Mali on August 15, 2022. The development also marks a strategic shift for the French military forces deployed in the Sahel region of Western Africa, which are assisting several countries to contain jihadist insurgencies."

"Truck convoys heading into Syria from Iraq are not uncommon: Iran sends fuel convoys to Lebanon and Syria a couple of times per month. On Tuesday night, one such convoy was hammered by Israeli airstrikes. Details are emerging slowly, hindered by Israel's policy of not talking about its attacks. Several vehicles were destroyed during the attack and at least 10 killed, with some reports putting the figure as high as 14. ... The attack took place in al-Qaim, the main border crossing area from Iraq to Syria." (11/09/22)

"Four states voted to ban slavery on Election Day, closing a loophole in the 13th Amendment that allows for draconian prison labor practices. The 13th Amendment of the Constitution bans slavery or involuntary servitude, except when used as punishment for a crime. About 800,000 prisoners across the U.S. are forced to work, often in cruel conditions and for little or no pay. Tennessee, Vermont, and Oregon all passed amendments to their state constitutions Tuesday eliminating language that allows slavery as punishment in prisons, by 79.7 percent, 89.2 percent, and 54.3 percent of the vote in each state, respectively, according to The New York Times."

According to a report in the New York Times, Twitter filed registration paperwork with FinCEN last week that will allow the platform to process payments. The move comes as the company's new CEO Elon Musk is looking for additional income streams that can help bring the platform back into profitability following his purchase of the social media site last month for $44 billion."

Source: Fox News

"King Charles III and Camilla, the queen consort, were egged upon arriving in the northern England city of York on Wednesday. Entering the city through Micklegate Bar, a medieval gateway where monarchs are traditionally welcomed to the city, the king and queen consort begin walking among a slew of people, restricted by barriers, itching to catch a glimpse of the reigning monarch and his wife. A video shows the king shaking hands with several people, when multiple eggs narrowly missed the king's face. The 73-year-old appeared stunned as he stared at several broken eggs on the ground, as he began to understand what just transpired. His team appeared to assess the situation while officers grappled with a man at the barrier. Britain's PA news agency reported that the protestor booed and shouted, 'This country was built on the blood of slaves' as he was being detained." (11/09/22)

"US transport officials have roasted a passenger online after they were caught trying to smuggle a gun on to a plane by hiding it inside a raw chicken. The fowl plot was cracked by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers at Florida's Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport. The traveller's weapon was spotted before boarding stuffed inside the bird and wrapped in paper packaging. TSA officers joked on Instagram that the scheme 'wasn't even half-baked. Officials didn't reveal who had hatched the plan, but photos posted to Instagram by the TSA showed officers examining the bird inside an airport screening area, before removing the gun and unwrapping it. With the annual Thanksgiving holidays fast approaching, the agency leaned heavily into festive puns in their caption, quipping that its officers 'are always working around the cluck to keep you safe.'"

The store owner has received a $1m (£880,000) bonus for selling the winning ticket in Altadena, California. The grandfather of 10 -- who arrived in the US from Syria in the 1980s -- said he was excited but would return to the shop as usual at 06:00 every morning. One ticket scooped the $2.04bn jackpot, according to Powerball. Mr Chahayed said he did not know who had bought the ticket, but hoped it would be someone local. As for his own plans, he said he would help his children. 'My son is expecting a baby in two months, so we are excited!' Mr Chahayed said, according to the BBC's US partner CBS. 'We can have a nice celebration for another baby.'" (11/09/22)

"New York's left flank of the Democratic Party are crediting the progressive Working Families Party for putting Gov. Kathy Hochul over the top in her tight race with Republican Lee Zeldin. 'Noteworthy: 4.6% of current votes cast for Hochul were on the @NYWFP line -- quite nearly the margin of her victory thus far,' tweeted Daniel Altschuler, co-executive director of lefty group Make the Road New York and also former campaign director for failed lieutenant governor primary candidate Ana Maria Archila, who was endorsed by the WFP. 'The WFP can rightly take a lot of credit for ensuring Hochul's victory with its robust #VoteWFP campaign.' According to the State Board of Elections unofficial results, 4.34% of the vote for Hochul were won on the WFP's ballot line. Hochul beat Zeldin by roughly 5 percentage points, per the BOE."

Source: Washington Examiner

"Split-ticket voters in Georgia are playing a significant role in tightening the Senate race between Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) and Republican Herschel Walker -- after reelecting Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) by a nearly 10-point margin. Neither candidate in the Senate race has yet to surpass the 50% threshold necessary to avoid a runoff, with 84% of the vote counted. In the gubernatorial race between Kemp and his 2018 Democratic opponent, Stacey Abrams, the incumbent governor was declared the winner before 80% of precincts reported their results, given that he earned 54% of the vote and comfortably evaded a runoff. ... Experts have predicted for months that vote-splitters, those who back a Republican in one race and abstain or choose a Democrat [or Libertarian] in the other, could be a deciding voting block in the Senate contest." [editor's note: As of early this morning, Libertarian Chase Oliver -- unmentioned by the Examiner -- was at 2% in the Senate race – TLK].

13) SCOTUS Justices seem to favor most of tribal child welfare law
Source: SFGate

"The Supreme Court appeared likely Wednesday to leave in place most of a federal law that gives preference to Native American [sic] families in foster care and adoption proceedings of Native children. The justices heard more than three hours of arguments in a broad challenge to the Indian Child Welfare Act, enacted in 1978 to address concerns that Native [sic] children were being separated from their families and, too frequently, placed in non-Native [sic] Homes. It has long been championed by tribal leaders as a means of preserving their families, traditions and cultures. But white families seeking to adopt Native [sic] children are among the challengers who say the law is impermissibly based on race, and also prevents states from considering those children's best interests."

Weekly demonstrations have taken place since the country's junta leader Lt Gen Abdel Fattah al-Burhan deposed a civilian-led government in October 2021, derailing a transition to democracy. Since then, the Sudanese Central Doctors Committee has reported about 119 deaths as security forces often used live bullets and tear gas to put down demonstrations." (11/09/22)

"Italian archaeologists have unearthed 24 beautifully preserved bronze statues in Tuscany believed to date back to ancient Roman times. The statues were discovered under the muddy ruins of an ancient bathhouse in San Casciano dei Bagni, a hilltop town in the Siena province, about 160km (100 miles) north of the capital Rome. Depicting Hygieia, Apollo and other Greco-Roman gods, the figures are said to be around 2,300 years old. One expert said the find could 'rewrite history.' Most of the statues -- which were found submerged beneath the baths alongside around 6,000 bronze, silver and gold coins -- date to between the 2nd Century BC and the 1st Century AD. The era marked a period of 'great transformation in ancient Tuscany' as the area transitioned from Etruscan to Roman rule, the Italian culture ministry said." (11/09/22)

"Testing by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers found no radioactive contamination at a Missouri school that was shut down last month amid fears that nuclear material from a contaminated creek nearby had made its way into the school, Corps officials said Wednesday. Teams from the Corps' St. Louis office began testing the interior of Jana Elementary School in Florissant, Missouri, and the soil around it in late October, days after the school board closed the school. The closure followed testing by a private firm that found levels of radioactive isotope lead-210 that were 22 times the expected level on the kindergarten playground, as well as concerning levels of polonium, radium and other materials inside the building. The Corps said preliminary results found no evidence of radioactive material above what would be naturally occurring." (11/09/22)

The job cuts come just a week after widespread layoffs at Twitter under its new owner, billionaire Elon Musk. There have been numerous job cuts at other tech companies that hired rapidly during the pandemic. Zuckerberg as well said that he had made the decision to hire aggressively, anticipating rapid growth even after the pandemic ended. 'Unfortunately, this did not play out the way I expected,' Zuckerberg said in a prepared statement. 'Not only has online commerce returned to prior trends, but the macroeconomic downturn, increased competition, and ads signal loss have caused our revenue to be much lower than I'd expected.

21) Trump Lost the Midterms. DeSantis Won.
Source: The Atlantic
by David Frum

The next big question in American politics: Is Florida's reelected governor, Ron DeSantis, a leader or a follower, a man or a mouse? DeSantis had a big night yesterday. Now he's preparing to seek the Republican nomination for president. Ex-President Donald Trump stands in his way, testing the slogans and insults he'll use against DeSantis -- hoping that the angry sounds will intimidate DeSantis into abandoning the impending contest before it starts. Other Republicans had a bad night yesterday. Their disappointment was very much Trump's fault. Trump stuck them with bad candidates and bad issues: his own grievances about the election of 2020. That record should weaken Trump's standing. But the weakening only matters if somebody uses it. ... If DeSantis is in the game now, he has to play now." (11/09/22)

22) The Essence of Regulation
Source: EconLog
by Walter Donway

"The laissez faire position on government regulation is that by overriding the judgment of individuals about production, trade, purchases, professional practice -- virtually any and every facet of economic life -- regulation violates the right to liberty and property. Because the individual's judgments, choices, and actions -- and the value he obtains thereby -- equate with the process of living, regulation in the end violates our right to life. Regulation substitutes the judgment of government, imposed by threat of fines and imprisonment, for that of individuals. It overrides the judgment of those directly involved in and responsible for every phase of economic life (and many other areas, of course), substituting government bureaucracy. Translated into practice that means curtailment of invention, imagination, experimentation, innovation, initiative, and value preferences." (11/08/22)

"Throughout the 2022 primary season, groups affiliated with the Democratic Party funded ads to boost immoderate Republican candidates. The goal was to boost the least moderate candidates in the hopes that they would be easier to beat in a general election. Now that Americans have voted, it looks like the gamble worked. Democrats exercised their free speech, but did they set a good precedent? ... After years of claiming that money in politics is bad and Trumpists will destroy America, Democrats spent millions to boost the people they are most afraid of." (11/09/22)

24) Welcome to the New Age of Nukes
Source: Foreign Policy
by Richard Fontaine

"Nuclear weapons never went away, of course, and have remained a critical element of national security policymaking for decades. But as Cold War-era anxieties faded from memory, so too did the fear of nuclear weapons retreat from the public mind. Today the chances of nuclear use remain low, but they are higher than before the Russian invasion, and possibly higher than at any time since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. That is dangerous. The taboo against the use of nuclear weapons in combat has remained in place since 1945 for a very good reason: Their destructive power, and the potential for escalatory effects, remains unparalleled. But the return of nuclear arms as a potentially major instrument of foreign policy means that decisions made now may well shape our world for decades to come." (11/09/22)

25) Performance-Based Wildlife Conservation Must Be Financially Sustainable
Source: Property and Environment Research Center
by Catherine E Semcer

"A key topic at the United Nations biodiversity conference in December will be how wildlife conservation funding can be increased. With the loss of fish, wildlife, and habitats seen as a top threat to the global economy, industry and investors are eager to make conservation their business. Opening pathways for them to do so is critical to reducing existing shortfalls in conservation finance. One promising approach is 'performance-based conservation,' also known as 'pay for success' or 'environmental impact bonds.' These schemes entail private sector entities paying the upfront costs of conservation programs, such as efforts to recover endangered species, that outline specific goals. In exchange, investors receive a financial return, paid by multilateral institutions, if the conservation goals are achieved." (11/09/22)

"Remember President Biden's Disinformation Governance Board? It was so ridiculed that the administration quickly scaled it back and then shut it down. But beware. Biden is resorting to more secretive methods (a vast censorship operation in collusion with Silicon Valley) to tighten the screws on what Americans can say.

"Today (November 9, 2022) is World Freedom Day, which began in 2001 to commemorate the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of communist rule in Central and Eastern Europe. U.S. government officials like to preach about liberty to people in other countries, especially when they travel overseas. But the United States could do much more to advance freedom at home, and be the role model for liberty worldwide." (11/09/22)

"There are lots of ridiculous laws on the books. But if one were to make a list, the Foreign Agents Registration Act would have to included in the top 10. The law was enacted in 1938 owing to increasing paranoia over the possibility that the Nazi regime might influence the members of Congress into accepting and embracing Nazi propaganda. Today, the law is primarily enforced to protect the weak and malleable mindsets of members of Congress from pro-Russia propaganda." (11/09/22)

"The capital of Ukraine was again under Russian rocket fire last week, but that didn't deter a visit by a large delegation of the Czech government. 'Our support, our help, is all the more important to strengthen Ukraine in its struggle,' Prime Minister Petr Fiala said after the two sides signed several agreements of cooperation. It was not the first time the Czech Republic -- a Central European country that doesn't share a border with Russia -- has displayed unexpected moral leadership within the European Union on the Ukraine war. A nation of only 10.5 million people, it was the first to send tanks to Ukraine's aid -- even though it was highly dependent on Russian gas supplies at the time. It has welcomed a large number of Ukrainian refugees and still provides outsize military support." (11/09/22)

30) The Bipartisan Race to be Tough on China
Source: Cato Institute
by Ted Galen Carpenter

"The 2022 midterm congressional elections in the United States have been characterized by stark, sometimes shrill, partisan disputes on an array of issues, both foreign and domestic. One area that has not featured such a division, however, is policy toward the People's Republic of China (PRC). Instead, there has been a growing consensus regarding that issue; the only contest appears to be about which party can and will take the harder line toward Beijing. ... The strength of the anti‐China trend is evident on multiple issues, including trade policy, human rights, Taiwan, and the extent of the security threat that the PRC now supposedly poses to the United States. Going forward, it matters little whether Republicans or Democrats are the majority party in Congress; the days of bipartisan support for a policy of cooperation with China are over." (11/09/22)

"Sometimes the analysis is obvious: Kowtowing to Donald Trump cost Republicans a big night. And the GOP is likely to pay for this blown opportunity through the next two election cycles. Every indicator -- from the late polling of individual races to presidential approval ratings to the 'right track/wrong track' numbers -- was set for a strong Republican election. But it's looking like Trump was too much baggage to overcome. And, make no mistake, the Democrats didn't win, the Republicans lost. ... For Republicans, it's a bitter night. They threw away a huge opportunity. Too timid to push Trump away, unwilling to temper themselves enough to be viewed as a reasonable alternative, they dared the public to vote Democratic in the face of all the negativity -- so the public did."

Source: Washington Examiner
by Byron York

"Even as votes continue to be counted, the big picture that is emerging from midterm results around the country is that, as predicted, it appears Republicans will win control of the House of Representatives. That's a big deal. Even if the GOP controls only one chamber of Congress, President Joe Biden's legislative agenda is dead. ... But in the final days and weeks of the campaign, Republicans began to hope for more. An optimism grew among GOP insiders that the party could capture the Senate, as well. First, they began to believe that Republicans could hold on to the toss-up seats they currently control: Ohio, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. The first three they felt very confident about, and the final one, Pennsylvania, they knew would be difficult." (11/09/22)

"Last week Shanghai Disney was locked down, so was a Foxconn plant producing Apple iPhone 14s, and on and on. Viruses aren't ideological. They just spread. Tragic as the lockdown responses have been, there's arguably a silver lining. The Chinese people are seeing up close just how hapless its government is in the face of a pathogen. Really, stop and contemplate the obnoxious conceit of Xi Jinping et al. for assuming that they, presumably for being the all-powerful CCP, could achieve 'Zero-COVID.' Paraphrasing Jeffrey Tucker, did the Chinese leadership really think that mass takings of freedom would stop nature in its tracks? The State is an abject fool, and the revelation of this truth in bright lights is one of the few positives of the tragic lapse of reason that were and are lockdowns related to the virus." (11/09/22)

"My recent article on how the Federal Reserve creates money drew a lot of responses. One follow-up in particular from a FEE Daily reader caught my eye. Samuel asks, 'What happens when the Federal Reserve sells (or otherwise gets rid of) the Treasury bonds that they hold? Is the money then removed from the economy?' I think the best way to tackle this question is by talking about restrictive monetary policy as a whole and what, if any, impact it will have on our inflation woes." (11/09/22)

Six of the 25 largest U.S. cities are in Texas, and Texas' metropolitan areas are growing faster than are most other U.S. metros .... the historical trend is not without exceptions, but it is clear: Urban states are Democratic states.

There, madman Mao Zedong, who led, and nearly destroyed, the People's Republic of China from its founding until his death, was confirmed as party leader in 1945. And Xi was sent to a nearby village to be reeducated after the dismissal of his father, a one-time Mao favorite, during the Cultural Revolution. Most people who had seen their father humiliated, their family disrupted, and themselves sentenced to involuntary servitude would have rejected the system that imposed such injustices. But not Xi."

Notably, the only thing that she was able to trap in the box or jar was something that is likely to be at a premium in Washington this week: hope.

However, there is one investigation that comes the closest to Pandora's box for the Washington establishment. A serious investigation into the Hunter Biden scandal could put the political and media elite into an existential crisis.

"Philosopher and business ethics expert James Otteson of the University of Notre Dame wants to save you from the error of your ways, and by doing so improve your life. His latest book, Seven Deadly Economic Sins, debunks a perennial list of economic fallacies about capital, government intervention, and prosperity, delivering a strong argument in favor of a market economy and the classical liberal political institutions that support it. As the book's title (and the author's professional background) would suggest, however, Otteson's argument ultimately rests more on a set of moral assumptions rather than any equilibrium model or regression analysis."

Source: The American Prospect
by David Dayen

"I heard about it from every candidate I talked to this year. They pointed to a vote held in May in the House of Representatives on the Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act, which would have enhanced the powers of the Federal Trade Commission to go after corporate price-gouging by gas companies, as well as giving the president additional tools to crack down. Not a single Republican voted for this bill, which in retrospect was kind of an epic mistake since they had no reason not to; it was never going to pass the Senate anyway. The oil company price-gouging bill became a well-worn talking point among Democrats; maybe not their most prominent broadcast message, but definitely part of their framing. Teasing out the themes of an election and what caused winners to win and losers to lose is always a bit of a mug's game." (11/09/22)

"It's too early to say for sure, but the red wave is starting to look more like a red trickle. While we still need to wait a bit to determine the balance of power in Congress -- with quite a few crucial races way too close to call -- a related narrative is developing. It has, thus far, been a pretty good election night for normal Republicans, when compared to the more extreme MAGA Trumpy Republicans. To be sure, there aren't a lot of normal Republicans anymore. Most have retired or been primaried out of their jobs. But Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu are about as good as it gets among GOP elected officials, and both coasted to victories on Tuesday night. Although Trump-backed J.D. Vance won his Senate race in ruby red Ohio, normie Ohio Republican Gov. Mike DeWine outperformed him by nearly 10 points." (11/09/22)

In a seemingly impromptu meeting at the COP 27 summit in Egypt, French President Emmanuel Macron told Maduro that he 'would love it if we could speak at greater length,' signaling his interest in helping to mediate the political crisis in Venezuela. Macron also referred to Maduro as 'president,' affirming the European Union's decision to stop recognizing opposition figure Juan Guaido as the country's leader. Maduro also held a warm conversation with Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa, whom the Venezuelan leader invited to visit Caracas. Even John Kerry, the Biden administration's climate envoy, spoke with Maduro on the sidelines of the conference." (11/09/22)

Source: Town Hall
by Jacob Sullum

"President Joe Biden, who recently issued a mass pardon for low-level marijuana offenders, says cannabis consumption should not be treated as a crime. His administration nevertheless defends the federal ban on gun possession by marijuana users, arguing that Second Amendment rights are limited to 'law-abiding citizens.' Last week, a federal judge agreed, dismissing a challenge to that rule by medical marijuana patients in Florida. The reasoning underlying that decision shows that the constitutional right to armed self-defense, which the Supreme Court has repeatedly upheld, is still subject to legislators' arbitrary whims and irrational prejudices. Florida is one of 37 states that allow medical use of marijuana, most of which also have legalized recreational use -- a policy supported by two-thirds of Americans." (11/09/22)

"In my last essay, I argued that the progress of capitalist development from industrial to postindustrial has worked to marginalize the socioeconomic position of ordinary people. Steadily declining dependence on their contributions in the most progressive sectors of the economy means that what they have to offer is less important than in the past; the result has been a drop in status and a loss of collective social power. This development, I believe, is the fundamental driver of our new class divide. Here I want to describe a similar dynamic concerning the political marginalization of ordinary people." (11/08/22)

Source: Common Sense
by Paul Jacob

"The Bill of Rights was originally understood as curbing the power only of the federal government. This began to change with the Fourteenth Amendment, which prohibits states from depriving persons 'of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.' Thanks to the 'incorporation doctrine' interpretation of this amendment, provisions like the First Amendment now apply as much to state and local governments as to the federal government. Except that many officials, disdaining these protections, simply ignore them. So although obliged to make no law 'abridging the freedom of speech,' California's government is abridging the freedom of speech of doctors. A new law authorizes state medical boards to penalize doctors who utter speech contradicting 'contemporary scientific consensus' about COVID-19." (11/08/22)

"Many years after the actual revolution and coup d'etat in Russia in following the collapse of Tsarist Russia, the word 'revolution' had 'positive connotations and was considered a source of legitimacy in official ideology.'

"Over the past 40 years, midterm elections have typically quiet affairs in which only 38% to 40% of voters show up at the polls, and those who vote skew toward the older, wealthier and whiter spectrum of the electorate. In contrast, in presidential election years, the turnout tends to be between 58% and 66% (in 2020). The 2022 midterms, however, looked more like a presidential election, following on the unusual turnout in the 2018 midterms of 53%. Yesterday's tally will rival that one and likely exceed it. As of the early hours of Wednesday, control of the House of Representatives was considered too close to call by NBC news, which did admit a tilt toward Republican control. ... control of the Senate was equally impossible to predict early Wednesday morning, with the win of John Fetterman in Pennsylvania keeping Dem hopes alive."
