    Katherine Tai confirmed as top U.S. trade negotiator
    Katherine Tai, a longtime congressional staff lawyer, won Senate confirmation on Wednesday as the first woman of color to serve as the top U.S. trade negotiator.

    The Senate approved her nomination 98-0, marking a rare bipartisan agreement in a deeply-divided Washington.

    Among her first tasks will be advising the president on what to do about existing tariffs on most imported Chinese products, presiding over enforcement of a new trade deal with Mexico and Canada, and seeking a negotiated end to a long-running commercial dispute with the European Union.

    "Katherine Tai, a longtime congressional staff lawyer, won Senate confirmation on Wednesday as the first woman of color to serve as the top U.S. trade negotiator.

    Whenever I see this, while it's great this is the case finally, it's also an indictment on the system, that it's taken this long.

    Though, to be honest, I was legit surprised when I looked it up, and saw it was a 98-0 confirmation. Honestly thought confirmations would cap out at ~80 votes.

    Katherine Tai made her career at the Office of the Trade Representative by going against Beijing on the WTO:
    Katherine is the lead advisor to the Chairman and Democratic Members of the Committee on Ways and Means on matters of international trade. She was named to this position in 2017 after serving three years on the Committee as Trade Counsel.

    Katherine came to the Committee in 2014 from USTR’s Office of the General Counsel, first as Associate General Counsel from 2007 to 2011 and then as Chief Counsel for China Trade Enforcement with responsibility for the development and litigation of U.S. disputes against China at the World Trade Organization (WTO). Before joining USTR, Katherine worked in the international trade departments in several Washington, DC law firms. From 1996 to 1998, she lived and worked in Guangzhou, China teaching English at Zhongshan University as a Yale-China Fellow.

    Oh, and she is from Taiwanese descent. It shouldn't matter, but it will. So, given that the US is not negotiating any trade deals at the moment thanks to COVID except taking the UK to the cleaners post-Brexit, and given that the national mood is "fuck Xi", that vote doesn't surprise me at all.

    There are definitely people in their '40s with power, even if not commonly at the actual top of the pyramid.

    Senators tend to be old... it's in the name. But their advisors and assistants etc would generally be in their 40s right now.

    Well, the people who were teens in the '90s have actual power now.

    Until recently the most powerful Millennial in government was Stephen Miller.

    Apparently, the Alaskan republican party has voted to censor Murkowski because her voting to confirm Haaland was the final straw for them. Will be funny if the GOP reaction to Haaland's confirmation ends up being something that kills their stranglehold on Alaskan politics.

    I'll be honest, there's a small part of me that is surprised that Murkowski hasn't gone the King/Sanders route, and gone Independent. She already won the seat once that way, and it doesn't stop her from caucusing with Republicans (much as King and Sanders do with Democrats), and it's clear her vision of the Republican party, and the one currently exists, aren't even close to similar.

    And shit, Trump has already said he wants her gone.
    https://www.politico.com/news/2020/06/04/trump-murkowski-campaign-mattis-302308

    And that was a half year BEFORE the second impeachment hearing.

    Quick tangent, but Alaska recently voted in ranked choice, so when it's time for Murkowksi to run for reelection, she'll have the benefit of the left voting her for #2 since she's infinitely more preferably than whatever extremist Republican they'll trot out.

    Not impossible to knock her out, but extremely difficult.
    People push ranked choice voting for 3rd party candidates most of the time, but in most states its going to benefit moderates much more than either wing. Murkowski is basically untouchable now.

    Not in Congress they don't.

    Shit, there's only a handful of Senators who would even have been teenagers even at the start of the 90s and only for like the first few years which barely count.

    Hey Marco Rubio was 18 on Jan 1 1990. There are 12 Senators who were teenagers in at least part of the 1990s.

    In fact, Jon Ossoff was never a teenager in the 1990s because he was born in 1987. The Senators who were teenagers the longest in the 1990s are:

    1(tied) Josh Hawley b December 31, 1979
    1(tied) Tom Cotton b May 13, 1977
    3 Kyrsten Sinema July 12, 1976

    So I kinda wish that group had less power.

    Considering there's a bunch of money in their budgets it doesn't make sense just to let the departments lie dormant, especially if the republicans can just pick up where they left off whenever they get into power again, it would be better to softly reinterpret their charters into something more productive and beneficial to the country

    True, but not one employee or manager was fired. All he did was disband the advisory committee, which sounds like just another resume stuffer with any managerial or rule making power. That's good, one less soapbox for Pubs to stand on and cry bipartisanship while only accepting conservative ideas.

    They also want to make the board that will replace it much more diverse. Sounds like in addition to be full of shithead trumpists, the board was also very white and male. Now my demographic doesn't have the monopoly on racist, sexist pig fucking racists, but a more diverse board might be less likely to put out fuck awful ideas. Plus, this was another case of the nazi shit known as, Ken Cuccinelli, getting fired.

    As for DHS, since it's unlikely to get gutted by this Congress. I'd argue the best approach is actually filling in the appointed seats with people that want to dismantle the racist agenda. As noted, leaving shit empty, just means that the next racist ass republican gets to pick up where Trump left off. There are also things that can only be done by having the proper positions filled as well. I'd wager some of the stuff we'd like to see happen, that would fuck over all the racist pigs, likely involves having the top spot filled. Pretty much get people in there that will get policy changes that make it much, much harder for the racist pigs to do business as normal. One idea that has come to me, is seeing if CBP can have it's hands tied on making arrests, once you are a 5-10 miles away from the border. Pretty much, load up a ton of policies that, yes, the racist fuckers will fight to prevent form happenings, but get them in now so that the CRA can't be used in the even that the GOP takes both chambers of Congress in 2022. Also, yes, when they get the WH back they'll move to dismantle and ignore that stuff, but you can probably fuck with them there because that's a whole process they have to go through and you can get a shit ton of their stuff thrown out if they fail to follow the rules (as a reminder, Trump failed to get many dreamers thrown out because his cadre of racists fuckers thought they could ignore the process and do as they please). Honestly, the DHS is probably fairly easy for Biden to fuck with, if he felt incline because the stuff he'd want to mess with, is stuff where you don't care if the department can't do it's normal thing because of legal fights. The few legitimate things that department does either are already mired in a process to try and unfuck them after Trump left them fucked or are things that the GOP and democrats agree should be happening (I do believe the idiotically took something off the secret service that dealt with smuggling and then got fucked by the racists because they racists fuckers raided it's funds. So that's one area where worst case, it can fight smuggling because shithead republicans insist on keeping it broken, but at best, could get back on it's feet because most of the GOP decide that's are really dumb hill to die on.

    EPA dismisses dozens of key science advisers picked under Trump
    Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan will purge more than 40 outside experts appointed by President Donald Trump from two key advisory panels, a move he says will help restore the role of science at the agency and reduce the heavy influence of industry over environmental regulations.

    The unusual decision, announced Wednesday, will sweep away outside researchers picked under the previous administration whose expert advice helped the agency craft regulations related to air pollution, fracking and other issues.

    Critics say that under Trump, membership of the two panels — the EPA’s Science Advisory Board (SAB) and Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) — tilted too heavily toward regulated industries and their positions sometimes contradicted scientific consensus.

    The house cleaning continues now we have confirmed people in positions.

    Putting this here since it is a request of the Secretary of Education.

    Biden to review executive authority to cancel student debt
    WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden has asked Education Secretary Miguel Cardona to prepare a memo on the president's legal authority to cancel student debt, White House chief of staff Ron Klain said Thursday, amid growing pressure for the administration to address the student loan crisis crippling millions of Americans.

    In an interview with Politico, Klain said Biden will make a decision on how to proceed once he reviews the memo, which could be sent to his desk within the next few weeks.

    "He’ll look at that legal authority, he’ll look at the policy issues around that, and then he’ll make a decision," Klain said. "He hasn’t made a decision on that, either way, in fact, he hasn’t yet gotten the memos that he needs to start to focus on that decision."

    It's also just that Biden's team, like with a surprising number of things, seems to be finally catching on. The press are not your friends and they are not where you go to vent on background. As a political leader you want your people to show some discipline and shut their fucking mouths. The US federal government has for some insane reason always been terrible at this. Especially Democrats. I assume it's related to dumb DC insider culture bullshit. Now it seems like all the leaks are just coming from people not on the inside trying to feel important.
