It’s the Wild West with these investments. Even distasteful Elon Musk said it was a hustle. Until there is some real regulation don't invest in them and remember it’s like a crap shoot.

You think wolf genocide isn’t just a petty game of politics to Republicans? Think again. This is all still a result of all the hate Donal Trump spread.
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2021/03/07/wolf-hunting-rise-republicans-push-states-ease-policies/4621727001/
TLDR;
“...The timing of the Wisconsin hunt was bumped up following a lawsuit that raised concerns President Joe Biden’s administration would intervene to restore gray wolf protections. The group behind the suit has close links to Republican political circles including influential donors the Koch brothers and notable Trump loyalists — Kris Kobach, a former U.S. Senate candidate from Kansas, and rock star and gun rights advocate Ted Nugent. ...”
“... “It’s not a scientific approach to wildlife management. It’s management based on vengeance,” said Dan Vermillion, former chairman of Montana’s fish and wildlife commission. Vermillion and others said wolves were being used to stoke political outrage in the same way Second Amendment gun rights were used in recent elections to raise fears Democrats would restrict firearms. ...”
“... Hanging in the balance is a decades-long initiative that brought back thousands of wolves in the Rocky Mountains, Pacific Northwest and Great Lakes regions. Considered among scientists and environmentalists a major conservation success...”

It’s now been over a year since the Jan. 3 killing of Soleimani, who was widely considered second only to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei himself in the Iranian government hierarchy, and the consequences of that strike are still unfolding. Yet many of the details behind the events leading up to his killing are shrouded in secrecy.
This article, based on interviews with 15 current and former U.S. officials, reveals new details about the Soleimani strike and the Trump administration’s long-running deliberations about killing the Iranian general and other top Iranian officials and proxies. It depicts an operation that was more sophisticated, and with a broader list of people potentially targeted for killing, than was previously known. And it describes previously unreported threats to U.S. officials in the aftermath of the strike.
For better or worse, the Soleimani killing was one of the most consequential foreign policy decisions of the Trump administration, with effects that will reverberate for years to come and likely shape the strategic environment President Biden now faces in the region. In audio that leaked in April, Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif said the Soleimani strike was more damaging to Iran than if the U.S. had destroyed an entire Iranian city. And according to a former senior CIA official who was in favor of the killing, it was “as dramatic a reshaping of the Middle East as we’ve seen in 50 years, and it happened in a matter of hours. It was a game changer...”
Senior NSC officials had extensive discussions about overt and covert options for killing Soleimani, and settled independently on the recommendation that the strike be carried out overtly, said Coates, the top NSC official for the Middle East at the time of the operation. While “the Pentagon was worried about being blamed,” says Coates, “my perspective was, we’re going to be blamed anyway,” so “if the president is going to take action this dramatic, you kind of need to own it.”
President Trump, however, may have had different calculations. A covert strike by Joint Special Operations Command was “doable all the way to the end,” said a former senior intelligence official familiar with discussions preceding the killing, but “the thing that pushed Trump over the top was for him to take credit for it,” said this person. He “wanted it for his reelection.”
And how did that work out for his reelection? How did it work out for the others involved?
Since the killing, Iran’s plans for revenge seemed to have multiplied. Last fall, U.S. officials picked up intelligence that Iran was plotting an assassination of the U.S. ambassador to South Africa. In January, U.S. officials intercepted communications between Quds Force operatives discussing a plot to attack Fort McNair, an Army base in Washington, D.C., and try and assassinate the Army’s vice chief of staff.
But Tehran almost certainly has more high-profile lethal targets in mind. By the end of the Trump presidency, there were “no-bullshit threats” by the Iranians regarding senior U.S. officials, said Miller, the former acting secretary of defense. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Kenneth McKenzie, the CENTCOM commander, Pompeo and Brian Hook, the administration’s top Iran envoy, were particularly targeted, said Miller...
Tucked into the appropriations bill signed by President Trump in the final days of 2020 was $15 million set aside to provide protective services to “former or retired senior Department of State officials” who “face a serious and credible threat from a foreign power or the agent of a foreign power” because of the work they did while in office...
The language doesn’t name any specific officials, and the State Department declined to comment on the identities of those who might receive protection. But the provision was designed with two in mind, said two former officials: Pompeo and Hook, the administration’s top Iran envoy.

The Republican Party might be high on Donald Trump, but key voters are not, The Washington Post reported Saturday.
Internal GOP polling data revealing Trump’s weak numbers in key battleground districts was kept under wraps by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) at recent retreats for Republican lawmakers, sources told the Post. NRCC staffers reportedly held back the bad news, even when a member of Congress asked directly about Trump’s standing at a retreat last month.
The Post obtained the full results of the party’s data, which found that Trump’s unfavorable ratings were 15 points higher than his favorable ones in “core districts.” In addition, nearly twice as many voters had a strongly unfavorable view of him than those who had a strongly favorable one in those areas, the newspaper reported.
The internal NRCC poll found that President Joe Biden was “perilously” (for the GOP) popular in core battleground districts, with 54% favorability, compared to Trump’s 41%. Vice President Kamala Harris was also more popular than Trump.
Trump’s weak numbers were reportedly also sharply downplayed at a retreat in March for GOP ranking members of congressional committees. Both situations revealed that the GOP leadership was eager to hide information to dodge the truth about Trump and the possible damage he could wreak on future elections. The debate over Trump’s potentially negative impact on swing districts is likely to escalate as vulnerable Republicans prepare for reelection.
The poll numbers were part of an extensive story in the Post about Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and her battle with colleagues over Trump. She has repeatedly bashed the former president for his lie that the presidential election was rigged, and for his incitement of the Capitol insurrection. While Trump’s weak numbers could theoretically bolster her fight, Cheney’s dissent may result in her removal from House leadership in an upcoming vote.
Despite the internal numbers — and Trump’s loss in the presidential election — the Republican Party appears to be marching into his camp more strongly than ever, and GOP leaders appear at a loss about where else to turn.

On Monday, Trump held a lengthy meeting with advisers at Mar-a-Lago about endorsements and which races he should get involved in and when, two people with knowledge of the discussion said. Susie Wiles, a Florida Republican operative who is informally leading Trump’s political operation, has attempted to instill some order and structure in the endorsement process. Some of his advisers — including Justin Clark, Trump’s 2020 deputy campaign manager, and Bill Stepien, his campaign manager for the last months of the 2020 race — have suggested other candidates for him to support as well.
Trump is especially interested in endorsing candidates who will take on Republicans who voted to impeach or convict him, and his team has begun making calls in Wyoming to try to clear the Republican field so one candidate can challenge Cheney. He has already endorsed former White House aide Max Miller to oppose Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-Ohio) and has begun interviewing potential challengers to Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) — both of whom voted to impeach him. He is also interviewing potential challengers to Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), who voted to convict Trump in an impeachment trial, an adviser said.
He has taken a particular interest in Georgia and Arizona politics after those states flipped for Biden in November. He is calling officials in Georgia to talk about who can beat Gov. Brian Kemp (R) and secretary of state Brad Raffensperger, the two state officials he most faults for his 2020 loss there for their refusal to overturn the state’s election results. He has also been paying close attention to the open governor’s seat in Arizona.
Trump has begun discussing creation of a Trump media group, which would post his videos and statements and potentially offer subscriptions for premium content, people familiar with the conversations say. His team has held meetings with potential social media start-ups, one of these people said, adding that any social media effort could be separate from a Trump media group.
And Trump, long a reluctant fundraiser, has begun fundraising for his PAC through golf tournaments, where donors can pay for the opportunity to play with him. The first one was last Sunday, with Trump and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), drawing nine groups of people who paid $25,000 each, and he is lining up additional fundraising tournaments this spring and summer at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., people familiar with the plans said.

Former president Donald Trump is moving to handpick members of the House GOP leadership team — relentlessly attacking Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the No. 3 House Republican, and endorsing Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York to replace her.
He is plotting to take down Republican lawmakers who voted to impeach him for inciting the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection on the U.S. Capitol, while continuing to stoke the false claims of a stolen election that have become a dangerous rallying cry for the party.
And he is playing host to a burbling stream of Republican well-wishers — including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Calif). and Sen. Ted Cruz (Tex.) — who travel to his private Mar-a-Lago retreat in Florida to pay their respects, seek his support and post a photo of their ring-kissing on social media...
Trump’s reappearance is fueled by an ego-driven desire to remain at the center of national attention, said former advisers and allies who are in touch with him.
The defeated ex-president is propelled primarily by a thirst for retribution, an insatiable quest for the spotlight and a desire to establish and maintain total dominance and control over the Republican base, said several former senior White House advisers. He has boasted to some in his orbit that he expects a book deal at some point, though there is no known offer, two advisers said.
He is pushing the party to the right, attacking transgender female athletes and criticizing the “spiraling tsunami at the border” under Biden; he is influencing Republican Party personnel, political, and fundraising decisions; and he is prompting a roiling, existential intraparty debate about what it means to be a Republican in the post-Trump-presidency era.
“Trump has flipped what we care about into more of an us-versus-them battle that has no end, and so every new development is an opportunity to divide folks, take sides, have a grievance to accentuate,” said Brendan Buck, a Republican strategist and frequent Trump critic. “Usually a fight is the means to an end, but in this case fighting is the end.”
This portrait of the 45th president in this moment is the result of interviews with 13 former White House officials, advisers, Republicans and allies, many of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to share candid details.

From Florida Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Nikki Fried on Twitter.
Floridians, has DeSantis always had that porcine appearance or is he just trying to look more like Trump lately?
And yeah, ever since they became friends with Putin, Republicans have been acting much more like communist totalitarians.
