KENNETH S ROGOFF
(born Mar-22-1953, 64 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.

  Colonel Mortimer: <Brussels has fired back at the new US sanctions against Russia, saying an “America first” approach does not mean EU interests can come last. Germany and France have also voiced their opposition to the new set of sanctions.

In a harshly-worded statement, Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, lashed out at Washington saying “America first cannot mean that Europe's interests come last.”

He added the commission “concluded today that if our concerns are not taken into account sufficiently, we stand ready to act appropriately within a matter of days.”>

This isn't Trump's fault. It's a huge blunder by Washington apparatchiks along with an MSM with dubious journalistic integrity.

Those rubbing their hands at the prospect of a new Cold War, are simply alienating America from the rest of the World.

  Keyser Soze: <Live life, think critically! You'll thank me in the end.>

By "live" you mean that he should leave that bash-bantz-trump-all-day-long-on-a-chess-site kind of "life" behind???

By "Think critically" you mean that should start reading some books , maybe try a college or attend a course and stop sharing stupid Twitter and Facebook gossips and "loooling" all day long?

Oh god. Easy . He is just having fun..

<<Dr Winston OBoogie:

I hate this place, I don't even like my so called friends and only have acquaintances that are broke and jealous, it's not good at all. I don't even like England truth be told!>>>

See? He doens`t have much more than you guys here.

hehe

Jul-26-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: So I'll take that as no comment, lol. I know you'd have voted Trump. Most, or over 45% of Americans have been fooled and you damn well know it and you're loving this. You're an anarchist.

By this time next year normal service should resume in Washington. The powers that won't put up with this humiliation much longer.

  Colonel Mortimer: <Mark> <If you were American who would you have voted for bearing in mind <you're voting with the intention to make America better> ?>

Trump over Hillary, easy all day long. I'm not a fan of Trump, but i believe someone needs to drain the swamp of Washington, even if it's a bad plumber. Hillary would have pumped the other way.

<How would you class your own political views, liberal, far right, what?>

It depends, some issues people would call me conservative, other issues people would call me a liberal. But again, that would be others thinking in terms of putting people into political categories.

  saffuna: Let's see...

Trump fired Comey because he was too tough on Hillary. That was the original reason, right?

Now he's ripping up Sessions for being too soft on Hillary, not taking action.

And people here still support this guy?

It's almost like you didn't want to give me the chance to respond - so that you could continue with your narrative.

Calm down, it's the internet. And the internet is for learning, not emotional meltdowns.

I've got news for you, <colonel>. He's deepening the swamp, not draining it. It's wal-to-wall Wall Street in the administration.

Jul-26-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: Fair enough I guess. But Trump over Hilary?? C'mon man you're an intelligent bloke who knows Trump was gonna be a disaster, know he's an embarrassment to America and if I saw it coming then you <definitely> did. I remember when Trump got elected the first thing I thought was.. 'I wonder what Mort from Ceegee makes of this insanity?'.

"Turns out I was wrong about America" - Mort.

Wow! I don't believe that ^^ for a millisecond but I still couldn't believe that was your statement. Positivity joyous you were, lol. happy as hell. To me that means one thing. It was <bad for America>.

Perhaps, and when the next Democratic administration alights in Washington, will you be saying the same?

Because under Obama, Golden Sacks had a field day.

Perhaps it's not so easy to set up a Wall Street free environment in Washington.

You should think about that, it's concerning.

America is changing <Mark>. The American peoples are starting to understand what Washington does in their name.

Libya was Hillary's war, Assad must go was her plan, Cold War re-ignition with Russia her goal.

Now you may say this has nothing to do with US domestic politics and to hell with the rest of world.

But a growing number of Americans don't agree with you, and are starting to understand that visiting devastation on other countries is not only robbing ordinary Americans of their dollars and increasing the US debt astronomically, it is also alienating America in a world that is increasingly interconnected.

  saffuna: <Perhaps it's not so easy to set up a Wall Street free environment in Washington.>

No kidding. There's a new book detailing the effects of Obama's failure to deal with Wall Street. I was really disappointed he didn't try to break up the "too big to fail" banks.

  Colonel Mortimer: Well i might suggest that your anger be pointed towards Wall Street, not chocolate cakes.

The partisan approach to politics in American is meaningful to the idiots, and useful to Washington.

  Colonel Mortimer: <saffuna: However flawed the Dems are, there is still a chasm between the Democrats and the Republicans.>

That explains everything, including America's massive incarceration rate, inability to provide universal healthcare, foreign invasions, crumbling infrastructure, rising debt, massive income equality and the political corrosiveness of its lobbying 'system'.

Who's to blame <saffuna>? Only the Conservatives?

A chasm? Get real. More like the small divide of genderised toileting.

  Colonel Mortimer: <A group of former US intelligence officers are challenging the assessment that Russia hacked the Democrats during the 2016 presidential election. They are also criticizing analysts for not looking at the forensic evidence. The Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) sent their first memo to President Donald Trump on Monday, challenging the claim that Russia “hacked” Democratic National Committee (DNC) computers during the 2016 presidential election. The group focused on a new analysis from an individual known as the Forensicator, who uncovered evidence that the files stolen from the DNC by the hacker known as “Guccifer 2.0” were most likely leaked, not hacked.

The Forensicator analyzed metadata from the Guccifer 2.0 files, and showed that the files were transferred at a speed of 23 MB/s, making it “unlikely that this initial data transfer could have been done remotely over the Internet.” The Forensicator also found that the files were most likely copied to a USB drive by someone on the East Coast of the US, who had physical access to a computer connected to the DNC network.>

There's a small problem with this latest reveleation on the hacking of the US election..

It doesn't fit the narrative, so it can't be true.

  Colonel Mortimer: The fact is we will never know, because the DNC don't want to release the evidence.

  HeMateMe: I love the "dancing pawn" at the Trump rally, a couple of pages back!

<Mort: Why weren't you worried when Obama destroyed Libya ...>

How stupid are you Mort? People were rebelling against long time dictator Khadafy. Big 'Mo had all the modern weapons; the lightly armed dissenters were being slaughtered. we and the Europeans helped level the playing field and the Libyans got rid of that piece of trash. It's a shame that the country hasn't evolved into something better, but at the time, helping the insurgents was the right thing to do.

The stalemate in Syria would long be over now if Russia hadn't stepped in to prop up Assad, the kind of murderer that you <mort> support.

mort supports Hezbollah and other terrorist groups.

Trump doesn't understand the difference between health insurance and life insurance.
