    RNC funded effort to jam House Democrats' office phone lines amid impeachment fight: report

    The Republican National Committee (RNC) funded an effort to tie up House Democrats’ office phone lines as the impeachment fight with the Trump administration intensifies, The New York Times reported Monday.

    The RNC paid for about 11,000 calls to almost three dozen House Democrats to influence public opinion on the impeachment inquiry and clog the representatives’ phone lines, affecting access to the lawmakers, two people briefed on the effort told the Times.

        Methinks Beaver doesn't understand what qualifies as science...
        Rigid hypothesis and proof is not a satisfactory definition of 'science' as one of my link battle winners already pointed out.

        That view is unfair and uninformed. It makes demands on economics that are not made of other empirical disciplines, like medicine, and it ignores an emerging body of work, building on the scientific approach of last week’s winners, that is transforming economics into a field firmly grounded in fact.

        It is true that the answers to many “big picture” macroeconomic questions — like the causes of recessions or the determinants of growth — remain elusive. But in this respect, the challenges faced by economists are no different from those encountered in medicine and public health. Health researchers have worked for more than a century to understand the “big picture” questions of how diet and lifestyle affect health and aging, yet they still do not have a full scientific understanding of these connections. Some studies tell us to consume more coffee, wine and chocolate; others recommend the opposite. But few people would argue that medicine should not be approached as a science or that doctors should not make decisions based on the best available evidence.

        As is the case with epidemiologists, the fundamental challenge faced by economists — and a root cause of many disagreements in the field — is our limited ability to run experiments. If we could randomize policy decisions and then observe what happens to the economy and people’s lives, we would be able to get a precise understanding of how the economy works and how to improve policy. But the practical and ethical costs of such experiments preclude this sort of approach. (Surely we don’t want to create more financial crises just to understand how they work.)
        Suffice it to say, when the Nobel committee considers it a science, it'll take a little more than Labron scraping the bowels of the left-ernet to establish otherwise.

          Sounds like Beaver has never encountered college-educated Americans who've had to take temporary jobs in order to make ends meet.

          Go figure.

          Just as I thought: you have no idea what criteria must be met in order for a field of inquiry to qualify as a science.

          There goes Beaver appealing to the wrong authority.

          The Nobel prize for economics is not even a “real” Nobel prize anyway, having only been set up by the Swedish central bank in 1969. In recent years, it may have been awarded to more non-conventional practitioners such as the psychologist Daniel Kahneman. However, Kahneman was still rewarded for his contribution to the science of economics, still putting that field centre stage.

          ...and, when all else fails, go for the ad hominem.

            Many, if not most sciences are really not anything like physics. People who worship at the altar of Climate Science should know more than most. Even certain parts of Physics (theoretical) are really nothing like your traditional middle-school definition of science.

            So here we stand, Labron vs the Nobel Prize committee. One thinks they're scoring points on a football message board. The other obviously has more important business.

              Shall we cherry pick your "CV" while we're at it?

              Economics even less so. So, does this mean you are retracting your original comparison? Thanks for the concession.

              It would be more accurate to describe the present standoff as "LABF vs. Beaver's misplaced appeal to authority."

              But thanks just the same for playing.

                Even if this were somehow a defensible position, a bartender still beats a pimp or a child molester (which brings us full circle to the original observation.)

                  The main point was you have a sampling problem. If you can categorize at random, you can really say anything you want.

                    In the same way you have a "sampling problem" when cherry picking your opponents' CVs?

                    In any case, no sampling or categorization required in order to note that the Dems didn't run any pimps or child molesters in the election (which, once again, was the point.)

                      President Donald Trump ordered to pay $2M to collection of nonprofits as part of civil lawsuit


                      President Donald Trump has been ordered by a New York State judge to pay $2 million to a group of nonprofit organizations as part of a settlement in a civil lawsuit stemming from persistent violations of state charities laws.

                      The payment is the final resolution to a case brought by the New York attorney general's office after the Trump Foundation held a fundraiser for military veterans during the 2016 campaign.

                      The televised fundraiser took in nearly $3 million in donations that were dispersed on the eve of the Iowa caucuses as directed by then-campaign chief Corey Lewandowski.

                      The two million must be paid by President Trump himself for breaching his fiduciary duty to properly oversee the foundation that bears his name.

                            That orange scumbag will surely find some pathetic R's willing to part ways with their hard earned money to give it to their beloved leader. They literally could write him a check and he would cash it and turn right around and spit on them, and they would probably ask for more.
