How Dianne Feinstein Should Really Be Remembered
Dianne Feinstein first took public office four years after I was born. I am now 49. In the long intervening decades she amassed such unflinching power in the U.S. Senate that her California constituents never had a real voting alternative. She raised a Political Action Committee that served as a funding source for her many elections. Her PAC catered to wealthy Californians and grew arms and legs across the state and into the Nation’s capital. She sat on, and eventually chaired, one of the most powerful committees in the U.S. Congress. Feinstein grew to be an institution unto herself, an unquestioned pillar of the American government. She also accumulated a personal fortune, despite never having worked a day since graduating from Stanford University in 1955.

Approval ratings, historically, have been a reflection of the public's sentiment towards a leader's decisions and actions. These ratings, often seen as the heartbeat of public opinion, provide a snapshot of how the nation perceives a leader's performance. While a national perspective offers a broad understanding, diving into state-specific ratings, such as those in Illinois, can reveal more granular insights.

Mr. President: You're Going to Lose to Trump. We're Begging You to Step Down | Opinion
The old rule about incumbents was that if they are under 40 points in approval, they are toast. However, President Joe Biden is under 40, and there is almost no chance he will win reelection. Three in six recent polls had him in the thirties, with one recent poll showing him at an abysmal 32 percent. This is unrecoverable, and it is unfair to think that an incumbent polling under 40 points can win reelection.

US Adds New Companies To Trade Blacklist Over Support For Russia
The United States has imposed new trade restictions on eleven Chinese and five Russian companies for their apparent roles in supplying components to the Russian government to construct drones for use in the war against Ukraine. All told, some 28 companies, some even from Finland and Germany, will be placed on a trade blacklist which will make it increasingly difficult for any suppliers in the U.S. to provide them technology. The fact that so many countries around the world are continuing to assist Russia in the production of military equipment that has been used to destroy not just Ukrainian military targets but also civilian targets far from the front lines is concerning to say the least.
