    Also from the Tribune article (bold emphasis added): IANAL, but I don't understand this quixotic and doomed attempt to prevent extradition. If I understand correctly, interstate extradition in the US can only be challenged on a few narrow bases (for example, when the charge is not a crime in the state from which extradition is being requested), none of which really apply here. All this business about "self-defense" and "Fourth amendment right" and such are the kind of matters that are supposed to be addressed at trial, or at pre-trial hearings. Robert Barnes is a lawyer - and he doesn't understand it either: https://twitter.com/Barnes_Law/status/1322296179799982080 1322296179799982080

    I suspect the NY Times reporter was just phoning this one in. The Tribune article is longer, more detailed, and doesn't indulge in irrelevant asides such as "In the weeks following his arrest, Mr. Rittenhouse has become a minor hero within the most conservative elements of the Republican Party."

    According to the Chicago Tribune, he is already there: Kyle Rittenhouse sent to Wisconsin to face charges in Kenosha protest shootings https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/breaking/ct-kyle-rittenhouse-hearing-20201030-cuzzzn6nsvgmve75ygnhqydvo4-story.html Dan Hinkel (30 October 2020) Lake County authorities on Friday afternoon handed off Kyle Rittenhouse to police in Wisconsin, where he faces charges stemming from the fatal shooting of two men and the wounding of a third during August protests in Kenosha, officials said. Shortly after a judge ruled the Antioch 17-year-old should be extradited, Lake County sheriff’s deputies drove him to the border and passed him to deputies from the Kenosha County sheriff’s department, said Sgt. Christopher Covelli, of the Lake County sheriff’s office.

    The Aftermath Of My Move Back To Independent Journalism https://greenwald.substack.com/p/the-aftermath-of-my-move-back-to Glenn Greenwald (30 October 2020) Interviews Discussing My Departure, Media Culture, the Need For Trans-Ideological Dialogue, and Intelligence Community Propaganda The last twenty-hours] have been exhilarating. I had no idea what to expect when I decided to leave The Intercept and move my journalism here, but the outpouring of support — both words of encouragement from readers and those subscribing and supporting my work here — has been beyond what I can describe and it is incredibly gratifying and appreciated. Thank you to everyone who has subscribed and reached out. This morning I discussed various aspects of my resignation from The Intercept on the outstanding YouTube program Rising with Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti. We discussed more in-depth my rationale for leaving, my response to various criticism and accusations from former colleagues and other assorted journalists, why I speak to both conservative and liberal media outlets, and what this episode reflects about broader media pathologies:

    Pretty much this. But I don't think it's so much a socialist movement as it is a totalitarian movement with the (typical) ambition of maximizing its influence, wealth and power. To whatever extent it is socialist, it is only incidentally so (e.g., for purposes of appealing to the "dolphin-kin-entit on the street" - a.k.a. "useful idiots"). As examined previously in this thread, apart from Marxist "conflict theory," the domain of Critical Theory actually has little use for socialism qua socialism (as evidenced by the fact that old-school material Marxists are among its vehement critics). Paradoxically, it is CT's rejection of reason and reality that makes it so potent. It appeals, rather, to things such as emotion, entitlement and ressentiment, which (unlike reason) are much easier to indulge and promote. This is why it has been so effective at sinking its hooks so deeply into academia over the course of the past few decades . CT was tolerated by rational/realist left-liberal academics (who really ought to have known better) by virtue of CT's stances in (supposed) opposition to "racism" and other forms of intersectionalized "oppression" - stances with which otherwise sane left-liberals (who predominantly composed the academy) strongly sympathized, even though they fastidiously wrinkled their noses at the irrationality of it all. Now that it's too late, they are learning that their charitable indulgence was a grave error. I suspect that this success may mark the beginning of the end of the "long march through the institutions" which as a result might now be in the homestretch, as we are now seeing CT (especially in the form of Critical Race Theory) making significant inroads in public and private institutions outside of ivory towers.

    You could say the same thing about the atmosphere ... or the gravity well ... or etc. ... :confused: No one talked about mining asteroids except me. In fact, the sources cited in the article explicitly disavowed it as a motive. Of course there isn't. No one said otherwise.

    Fake News version: The Trump campaign bused in a bunch of people to their rally the other night, but after the rally they left them completely stranded, including old people! Seven had to be taken to the hospital. One of the "bus drivers" claimed on twitter he didn't get paid, and heard they didn't get paid last time so they decided to just go home and leave people stranded in the cold. What actually happened: 25,000 people showed up to the rally, nobody was "bused" from out of town. They had a parking lot about 3 miles or so from the venue, and shuttle buses running everybody back and forth. Joe Biden can't even get ten people to show up to his rallies. So already, this story makes the left look bad.

    No, nothing like what you said ever happened, obviously, obfuscator.. Glenn started his own site, then he partnered up with some folks under CONTRACT, and they disobeyed their CONCTRACT and so now he may be able to SUE them. My only point is about how dishonest and deceitful leftists are. They are dishonest when they say, "its their site, they should be able to censor" because they would NEVER feel the same way if the same thing happened to them. So to follow their advise, and think that they will then leave you alone and not try to censor you, one way or another, is naive.

    Greenwald just posted this: Emails With Intercept Editors Showing Censorship of My Joe Biden Article https://greenwald.substack.com/p/emails-with-intercept-editors-showing Glenn Greenwald (29 October 2020) Given The Intercept's vehement denials, readers are entitled to see for themselves what the truth is Following are the communications I had over the last week with Intercept editors regarding my article on Joe and Hunter Biden, which they refused to publish absent the removal of all sections critical of the front-running Democratic presidential candidate whom they uniformly and enthusiastically favor. This is the final exchange that precipitated my resignation from The Intercept and First Look Media, though, as I set out in my article of early today, by no means the sole or primary reason for leaving.

    All of which is what I meant when I said, "Mining the asteroids is certainly not yet within our capabilities." Trying to interpret the $10,000 quadrillion figure as anything other than "there's a whole honkin' lotta useful stuff out there" is futile at present. Traveling across the Atlantic & Pacific Oceans was once an extremely expensive proposition, but not so much anymore, relatively speaking. Economies of scale, technological advancement and other factors will mitigate the expenses. The point I was getting at was not specifically that we should "bring any of this material back " - that is merely how it was phrased in the quote from the article, It is that the "feel good" justifications for space exploration/colonization that are so often offered by space "boosterism" simply won't cut it by themselves. We have to get something for our trouble that will make it economically "worth it" (and, yes, even humble iron/nickel cores will be some part of that).

    I was just about to post this story. jct74 beat me to it. For the time being, he will be self-publishing his own stuff (including the Biden article) at his Substack account. Apparently, they tried to intimidate him with lawyer-speak into not releasing his Biden article elsewhere, even though he is contractually permitted to publish any of his stories elsewhere if the The Intercept doesn't accept them. Here's his public announcement of his resignation:
