"For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence--on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

"Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War, in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match." -- John F. Kennedy

Former governor of New York from 2011 to 2021 Andrew Cuomo appeared on Real Time With Bill Maher on Friday where he discussed the implications of the New York City Trump trial with host Maher. 

Maher's mostly liberal audience is caught quiet when Maher and Cuomo start frankly discussing whether or not the trial was helpful for the Trump campaign. 

“The trial in New York, the one he [Trump] got convicted for, was the greatest fundraising bonanza ever. He was lagging behind Biden, and now he's pulled quite a bit ahead," Maher said to Cuomo during the show. 

"That trial was the greatest reason people had to send their checks for $5, $10, 2$5, whatever dollars to Donald Trump. So I was always with you [Andrew Cuomo] on the one in New York, the hush money trial. I don't think they should have brought that one," he continues.

Japan’s Norinchukin Bank indeed plans to liquidate $63 billion in US and European treasuries to mitigate unrealized losses. Here are the key points: Liquidation Plan: Norinchukin Bank, a major Japanese bank with $681.6 billion in total assets, intends to sell approximately 10 trillion yen (equivalent to $63 billion) worth of US and European sovereign bonds. The bank aims to complete this sell-off by March of next year. Unrealized Losses: The bank faces significant unrealized losses on its bond holdings, which totaled around 2.2 trillion yen as of the end of March. To address this, Norinchukin Bank’s CEO, Kazuto Oku, emphasized the need for management changes. The bank plans to shift its investments away from sovereign interest rate risk and diversify into assets with corporate and individual credit risk.

During an interview with CBS’s “The Takeout” podcast released on Friday, Biden Senior Adviser Gene Sperling stated that while some economists question whether the White House’s narrative on shrinkflation is accurate, “I think Joe Biden feels like he knows what side he’s on.” And “one thing Joe Biden has learned a bit, is it’s not sometimes just listening to the real conservative economists, but just following his gut instinct” like he did with the American Rescue Plan.

Demand and Strain on the Power Grid: Over half of all new cars sold in the U.S. by 2030 are expected to be electric vehicles. However, this surge in EV adoption could strain our nation’s aging power grid, which was originally built for fossil fuels. Domestic electricity demand is projected to increase significantly by 2030 and 2035, driven primarily by the transportation sector’s shift to EVs. To accommodate this demand, we need major grid changes, including high-voltage transmission lines, distribution upgrades, and hardware for renewable energy integration.

"The other thing I will say is that the war didn't start in February last year. The war started in 2014. And since 2014, NATO Allies have provided support to Ukraine, with training, with equipment, so the Ukrainian Armed Forces were much stronger in 2022, than they were in 2020, and 2014."
