[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.

  HeMateMe: the Philippines bent over for China.

  saffuna: <Hunter get paid 1.5 billion by the Chinese...> ???

Paid $1.5 billion? Or invested $1.5 billion?

Not the same thing.

Premium Chessgames Member
  SugarDom: <saffuna: <Hunter get paid 1.5 billion by the Chinese...> ??? Paid $1.5 billion? Or invested $1.5 billion?

Not the same thing.>>

Funny that's the same excuses the corrupt politicians say over here.

No wonder, the Chinese can occupy territories without a fight.

  saffuna: Fiona Hill: <"Ambassador Sondland, in front of the Ukrainians, as I came in, was talking about how he had an agreement with Chief of Staff Mulvaney for a meeting with the Ukrainians if they were going to go forward with investigations. And my director for Ukraine was looking completely alarmed.>

"Investigations" means Bidens and 2016. That's clear from the testimony of various witnesses.

But it references the White House meeting only, not the military aid, as I suggested was possible esrlier.

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: <sugardom> being paid an amount and having an amount invested with you are two different things.

Even you must understand that.

  saffuna: DOJ investigation of 2016 scheduled to be released December 9.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Thanksgiving recess is nearing. There will be a trial. Trump will be found not guilty on all articles of impeachment proffered by the House of Reps. yet, he will wear the stink of guilt, of criminality, for the rest of his life, as did Richard Nixon.
Nov-21-19  schweigzwang: Is there a meaningful difference between "Russia tried to interfere with US elections in 2016" and "Russia interfered with US elections in 2016" ?

If there is, is it necessarily possible that we could tell the difference?

Nov-21-19  Bobsterman3000: <Count Wedgemore: <saffuna> Good! So she's not forgotten then :)>

I'm sure it's just a coincidence that Bill Clinton pardoned Susan McDougall on his way out of the White House.

No way she could've known that pardon was coming.

Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: I wonder if Sherriff Joe saw his pardon coming?

Michael Cohen, still's tough when you're loyal to someone, break the law with them, then get thrown under the bus.

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: <No way she could've known that pardon was coming.>

McDougal must have been happy to be released and not have to serve the rest of her sentence.

Nov-21-19  Colonel Mortimer: <saffuna> <"Investigations" means Bidens>

Yep, you're simply making it up to fit a pre-conceived narrative.

Now where have we seen you do that before, I wonder..?

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: The only investigations ever mentioned are of Burisma and 2016.I

You know if any others in Ukraine Trump was pursuing?

Nov-21-19  Bobsterman3000: < saffuna: <No way she could've known that pardon was coming.> McDougal must have been happy to be released and not have to serve the rest of her sentence.>

She was out of jail by the time that Clinton pardoned her.

Then many years later you rewarded that aforementioned ADMITTED Presidential perjurer with your vote in installing him back in the White House in a powerful position.


Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Mort is trying to overturn the results of the American war of independence against his British ancestors, 1776-83. Good luck with that!
Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: <She was out of jail by the time that Clinton pardoned her.>

Oh right. Released in 98. I'd forgotten.

Nov-21-19  Colonel Mortimer: <saffuna: The only investigations ever mentioned are of Burisma and 2016.>

Correct. No investigations of the Bidens mentioned.

Finally, you got there in the end. For someone who says it's simple affair to understand, you've been experiencing great difficulty understanding who said what.

Who can blame you though, the Schiff show is one big hearsay fest.

Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: Burisma = Bidens.

Came up many times in testimony.

But just the 2016 "Crowdstrike"/DNC server investigation is more than enough, an investigation purely for Trump's personAl benefit.

Also a pile of baloney, as Fiona Hill stated forcefully today. Under oath.

  al wazir: <OhioChessFan: Yes. <<saffuna: Very Christian of you.>>>

An advertisement for atheism.

<Veracity of statements by Donald Trump>

Nov-22-19  Colonel Mortimer: <saffuna> <But just the 2016 "Crowdstrike"/DNC server investigation is more than enough, an investigation purely for Trump's personAl benefit.>

Baloney, in which case you're asking for Barr to be sanctioned for investigating Democrat corruption.

No wonder people don't want the Dems any where near the levers of power.

Nov-22-19  devere: "Trump Wants Senate Trial, Expects Joe Biden to Testify: White House"

Premium Chessgames Member
  Bureaucrat: Good summary of Fiona Hill's testimony and the impeachment hearings:

<Fiona Hill, the last witness in two weeks of televised impeachment hearings, made the case against her old boss President Donald Trump better than Democrats ever have.

The former National Security Council official on Thursday distilled the fog of shady dealings and competition between Trump appointees and career bureaucrats with a crystal clear condemnation of his rogue foreign policy operation in Ukraine.

And she also effectively warned that the Republican defense of the President -- by peddling Ukraine conspiracy theories -- was in danger, in itself, of becoming an extension of the 2016 Russian election scheme that is tearing American politics apart and draining public confidence in its democracy.>

The whole article is well worth reading.

  chancho: <Israel's attorney general has charged Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with bribery, fraud and breach of trust in connection with three separate cases.

Mr Netanyahu is alleged to have accepted gifts from wealthy businessmen and dispensed favours to try to get more positive press coverage.

The prime minister described the charges as an "attempted coup", blaming them on a "tainted" process.

He has also insisted he will not resign and is not legally obliged to do so.

In a televised speech, Mr Netanyahu said authorities "weren't after the truth, they were after me", and called on the country to "investigate the investigators".

Earlier, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit said he made the decision "with a heavy heart", but said it showed nobody was above the law in Israel.

"Law enforcement is not a choice. It is not a matter of right or left. It's not a matter of politics," he said.>

Impeachment Hysteria.

This whole video is well worth watching.
