    He's right. That's no coincidence.

    0% chance of that happening. I do think Trump will not do as well as expected. I don't think he will reach 50%.

    That’s a fact

    We shall see.

    Seems that Trump and Rastetter have something in common: bankruptcy.

    Gov. Terry Branstad has a bad habit of putting businessmen who file for bankruptcy in charge of the Iowa Board of Regents, from which they launch strategic plans to imperil higher education. During his first tenure as governor, Branstad installed Republican fundraiser Marvin Pomerantz as chairman of the board that governs our three state universities, plus the schools for the blind and deaf.
    ...
    Comes now Branstad in a second iteration with another expert in bankruptcy, Bruce Rastetter of Alden, heading the regents. He and Branstad cooked up a plan to finance the state universities by the ratio of Iowa students they serve. The University of Iowa had built up a nice business in over-charging wealthy Chicagoland students for an undergraduate degree at a Big 10 school in a party-crazy town. UNI and the private colleges catered primarily to resident Iowa undergrads. The private colleges, a bulwark of the state economy and culture, have been complaining about this latest funding plan to anyone who will listen.

    Rastetter may have used Pomerantz as an example of how to get wealthy by running businesses into the ground. His first big splash was in rounding up a ton of Wall Street money to invest in corporate-owned hog raising facilities in north central Iowa. Heartland Pork Enterprises was not bankrupt but it did lose money five out of its last seven years, including a $23 million loss in its final year, according to the Waterloo Courier. Rastetter insisted the company was not near bankruptcy. He sold it to Christensen Farms of Sleepy Eye, Minn., and walked away with a fortune.

    Then he went out to New York again to get more cash out of the smart money. This time he sunk it into ethanol. That company did go bankrupt. Hard times, you know.

    Rastetter did not have to go take a job trimming pork at the Waterloo Tyson plant. He just kept counting his millions and wondering how to blow them. Rastetter gave a lot of money to Republicans. He gave $2.5 million to Iowa State. And, by golly, he became chairman of the Iowa Board of Regents.

    It certainly sounds like Trump is still doing the bidding of some of the swampiest operatives...

    On Trump:
    How conservative Republicans can continue to support this arrogant imposter—the man who brags about inflicting the world with the Covid mark of the beast; the man who said, “Take the guns first, go through due process second”; and the man who deliberately played and then set up Stewart Rhodes (of course, Stewart was all too eager to be Trump’s patsy) for an 18-year prison sentence—is truly beyond my comprehension.” Chuck Baldwin

    Ethanol, CO2 and carbon credits. Looks like Trump's new friend has made a career out of playing the "green agenda"...

    Summit Carbon Solutions LLC is not giving up on obtaining the permits for a five-state, 2,000-mile CO2 pipeline on which it has sunk hundreds of millions of dollars for easement agreements, despite a competitor's decision to quit over the permitting uncertainty.

    The possibility that Summit will run up against the same issues as Navigator CO2 Ventures LLC is a "fair question," CEO Lee Blank said in an interview. However, "I think the project has enough relevance and importance that I don't believe that will happen."

    Iowa-headquartered farm management company Summit Agricultural Group, the investor backing Summit Carbon Solutions, secured financing in 2021 to build a carbon capture network, transporting emissions from ethanol plants across the US Midwest to a permanent storage site in North Dakota. About the same time, asset manager BlackRock Inc. and petroleum producer Valero Energy Corp. launched a similar project under the name Navigator that would store CO2 in Illinois. The proposed pipeline networks had overlapping routes in South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota.

    On Oct. 20, Navigator scrapped its 1,300-mile project, dubbed Heartland Greenway, a few weeks after South Dakota regulators denied the developer a siting permit. Navigator said the cancellation came down to the "unpredictable nature" of state and local regulatory proceedings, particularly in South Dakota and Iowa.
    ...
    The Midwest's CO2 pipeline developments are encouraged by federal subsidies, newly expanded under the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, for carbon capture and the production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) such as ethanol.

    To meet the emissions standards of the "clean" fuel, ethanol producers capture their carbon emissions while adhering to other sustainability requirements, such as limiting land use and using zero-carbon hydrogen to make fertilizer. As such, dozens of ethanol plants have signed agreements with Summit to offload their CO2.

    "Without our project, there is no SAF," Blank said. "That's a pretty grand statement, but it's real."

    Summit plans to earn revenue by selling tax credits awarded per metric ton of CO2 captured and carbon offsets on the voluntary carbon market, Blank said. In April, Summit and two other carbon removal companies signed a procurement agreement that will commit them to remove a combined 193,125 metric tons of CO2 from the atmosphere.

    They can afford to pay Trump enough to hate Ramaswamy as much as he does Massie. And since Ramaswamy has constructed himself an anti-imminent domain platform, I'm sure he will.

    So Ramaswamy is kissing Trump's ass, insisting he doesn't care about the VP slot, and taking positions nobody's willing to pay Trump to take (exactly the opposite, there's no bribe money in his positions). He's not pointing out the hypocrisy, but he's showing it up.

    They both seem to have benefitted by not facing each other in any debates. This pretense couldn't be maintained otherwise. But when will those differences come to a head?

    So much for that prediction:
    Trump wins Iowa caucus 2024:
    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Donald Trump won the Iowa caucuses on Monday, seizing a crucial victory that reinforces the former president’s grip on his party at the outset of the GOP’s 2024 nomination fight even as he faces extraordinary legal challenges that could complicate his bid to return to the White House.

    The magnitude of Trump’s success is still coming into focus and it was not immediately clear who would emerge as the second-place finisher, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis or former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

    The votes in iowa for biden and haley tell you what you need to know about that place, good God. biden- harris pulled 45 percent last time , probably exceed that this time. If over half your population is supporting biden-harris-haley your in a $#@!hole.

    Iowa is changing FAST.

    Huge influx of foreigners to work in globalist corporate agriculture.

    Cute white girl a few years ago was out jogging and an illegal working for a corporate hog farm owned by a Kalifornian republitard congressman chases her down, rapes her and kills her and leaves her in a corn field........

    Huge money was collected for his defense by NGO's and the "migrant" community.

    Her cucked-out father pleads with the crowd not to hold resentment for the illegal invader community.

    Hard to remember the details, but I think he gets a life sentence. No death penalty in Iowa.

    We will probably find out that a court somewhere lets him go in a couple of years.

    Iowa is as suicidal with its demographics as Sweden.

    Being Indian may have worked against him for Iowa Republicans. But worshiping demons tends to work out to the advantage of politicians in both parties.

    There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.

    Fair enough. This country is already run by demon-worshipping foreigners. Vivek would fit right in.
