KENNETH S ROGOFF
(born Mar-22-1953, 66 years old) United States of America

[what is this?]

Kenneth Saul Rogoff learned chess from his father at age six, but only took up the game in earnest when he received a chess set for his 13th birthday. He was soon recognised as a chess prodigy. By age 14, he was a USCF master and New York State Open Champion, and shortly thereafter became a senior master, the highest US national title. At sixteen, Rogoff dropped out of high school to concentrate on chess, and spent the next several years living primarily in Europe and playing in tournaments there. When eighteen, he made the decision to go to college and pursue a career in economics rather than to become a professional player, although he continued to play and improve for several years afterward.

Rogoff was awarded the IM title in 1974 and the GM title in 1978. He came third in the World Junior Championship of 1971 and finished second in the US Championship of 1975, which doubled as a Zonal competition, one-half point behind Walter Shawn Browne this result qualified him for the 1976 Interzonal at Biel, where he finished 13-15th. In other tournaments he finished equal first at Norristown 1973 and Orense 1976.

Early in his economics career, Rogoff served as chief economist at the International Monetary Fund and also at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. He is currently the Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Public Policy and Professor of Economics at Harvard University.

  saffuna: <Lol, the Volker texts don't even mention Biden, the quo in your fairy tale.>

They mention "help with a political campaign."

You're just fooling now. No way can you be that stupid.

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: Trump was not just looking for dirt on Biden he was also looking for information on the insane <mort>-style conspiracy theory on the 2016 election intended to absolve Russia of blame.

Jane Mayer explained it in the video I posted.

Oct-14-19  Colonel Mortimer: Nope, I'm quoting Volker.

You can't show a single text mentioning Biden.

You often do this, pretending the evidence is very strong. But when I quote the detail of evidence back to you, you self-destruct.

Oct-14-19  Colonel Mortimer: <Jane Mayer explained it>

Yep, a lot of things have been explained to you by the commentariat and fake news media. That doesn't mean they're true.

As you spectacularly realised to your cost on the collusion lie, lol

  saffuna: You didn't watch the Mayer video, though. I watched the Jimmy Dore video you posted, though. I've always liked him, he's a funny guy.

They say "help with a political campaign."

Mafia defendants would just love to have you on a jury, <mort>. You would never vote to convict.

  gezafan: <Bobsterman3000: Oklahoma City sheriff's office releases accused rapist illegal immigrant under its sanctuary policy instead of holding him for ICE as federal law requires.

https://okcfox.com/news/local/ice-a...

Of course, he goes right back to the home of his alleged victim immediately.>

And liberals don't care if he rapes again. They're not offended by an illegal alien raping someone.

But they do get offended when Donald Trump truthfully says that some illegal aliens are rapists.

Oct-15-19  Colonel Mortimer: <saffuna: <You can't show a single text mentioning Biden. >

They say "help with a political campaign.>

Yep, but that doesn't rise to your claims of damning evidence.

You're creating a narrative to fill the large gaps in your case. That's called editorialising.

You did the same with Collusiongate, convinced that all the dots were connectable like a child's picture book.

But you were PROVEN wrong. All you ended demonstrating was an infantile gullibility for believing everything CNN told you to believe.

Will you ever learn?

  saffuna: <Yep, but that doesn't rise to your claims of damning evidence.>

Maybe not in New Zealand. In the United States it most definitely does.

And on top of that, Fiona Hill testified about it today, and the person on the other end of those texts, Gordon Sondland, is testifying Wednesday.

Oct-15-19  Nisjesram: <gezafan><And liberals don't care if he rapes again. They're not offended by an illegal alien raping someone.>

<gezafan> , get some help please - and stay away from <tpstar>...bad company , especially in your condition.

No offence :) cheers :)

.

Oct-15-19  Nisjesram: Some of the people here are quite dispassionate and I learn from them (And eventually aspire to go beyond them ) - <al wazir> , <keypusher> , <johnlspouge>... ...

<saffuna> , <mort> you are great guys - smart/intelligent ...But your back and forth 'shout show ' is tedious...No offence.

Like me , you two should also learn from <al wazir> , <keypusher> , <johnlspouge>.... ...
Just saying...No offence :) cheers :)

Unfortunately what I said is absolutely true. Something which you failed to address. All you did was insult me.

Oct-15-19  Nisjesram: At least <bobsterman> is not participating in 'shout show ' these days... ..Thank God(If she/he/it exists) for such mercies.

Thanks to <bobsterman> too.

Just saying....cheers :)

Did you learn from al wazir how to be a bigot? He supports all white men being removed from all positions of power.

Of course he can learn from you that it's God's will that Indians rule over white people.

Just saying. Cheers.

Oct-15-19  Nisjesram: <gezafan><Unfortunately what I said is absolutely true. Something which you failed to address. All you did was insult me.>

I already responded to that post of <bobsterman>.

Instead of doing your usual comedy "liberals this , liberals that ' , suggest some real measures to address this problem....If chief of you conservatives <bobsterman> (Who has brain/intelligence unlike most of you conservative idiots here) supports those measures , I will support them too. I don't care , dummy.

If like <keypusher> , all of you say "No immigrant here unless s/he married to some American (And minor children of spouse) or s/he has intelligence level equal to or above that of Feynman " , I am perfectly fine with that too.

What I find jarring is your incessant , stupid "liberals this , liberals that "

What a button! Trump chump!

Did you see how <al wazir> excoriated me when I said "I don't expect maturity from right wingers " and I apologized And thanked him? Learn from that...

Did you see <wtpy> thanking <keypusher> for transcending right winger/left winger dichotomy? Learn from that.

And again - stay away from <tpstar> ...very bad company , especially in your condition.

No offence :) cheers :)

.

Oct-15-19  Nisjesram: <gezafan><Of course he can learn from you that it's God's will that Indians rule over white people.>

That is the result of bad company of <tpstar> - umpteen times I refuted this nonsense of yours ...I explained you that I don't agree with <keypusher> that Asians are superior to white people in iq because of genes and I was being satirical when I said that , satire directed at <keypusher> and yet you keep repeating the same nonsense as if I never refuted that.

Same thing that buffoon <tpstar> does over and over - both with me and <saffuna>.

Stay away from <tpstar> ...bad company , especially in your condition.

No offence :) cheers :)

Ok. Get rid of sanctuary cities and force municipalities to stop shielding violent illegal alien criminals from arrest and prosecution.

  gezafan: Also stop letting illegal aliens into the country.

I don't have inclination to concentrate on this to see if it is a good measure , I only half read it.

However , I trust <bobsterman> and his sanity and intelligence.

If <bobsterman> says it is ok , I am ok with it.

.

Oct-15-19  Nisjesram: <gezafan: Also stop letting illegal aliens into the country.>

You and I on the same page...i am in agreement with you , mate .

Have a nice day. Later....

Cheers :)

  SugarDom: Listening to Saffuna and HeMateme convinced me that Trump is doomed to be impeached and jailed.

Ok, I'm done contradicting them with the truth.

I'll just watch them like a horror movie, while munching popcorn till the 2020 election results where Trump is going to be re-elected.

Then it's another 4 years of suspense, thriller and horror movie from these Beavis and Butthead duo.

  SugarDom: <Oct-14-19 saffuna: Eleven hours. Trump's former (until August) Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for European and Russian Affairs on the National Security Council staff. Actually, we won't mind if you disappear when it all collapses, <mort>.>

Damn. Orange Man Done.

Oct-15-19  Colonel Mortimer: <saffuna: <Yep, but that doesn't rise to your claims of damning evidence.>

Motivated incomprehension. I said it doesn't rise to <YOUR> claims of damning evidence. Nothing to do with NZ or US.

  perfidious: <plang: If the media actually got together and ignored Trump for a few days it would drive Trump nuts - he revels in the attention - both positive and negative.>

That would bring about a firestorm, the likes of which the world has never seen.

<keypusher....I also admire how you never trim or abate your convictions one bit in here....>

Generally speaking, <ohiyuk> is consistent at least.

Oct-15-19  Nisjesram: <perfidious><Generally speaking, <ohiyuk> is consistent at least>

Yes , indeed ...remarkable, astonishing consistency....given by unshakable hold on him of his indoctrination :)

Cheers :)
