My Next Mac Mini Part 2, The Minining | Rusty Rants
Early this year I wrote about my 2010 Mac Mini and the desire to replace it with something more modern. For some reason the article got some traction and it seemed a lot of people were in the same boat as me. They were also looking at something Mini-like but were uninspired by Apple's Mac Mini lineup.…

The IMF says the US economy's growth spurt may come to a messy end — Quartz
The IMF says the US economy’s growth spurt may come to a messy end June 14, 2018 at 02:01PM https://ift.tt/2lbydOd

The International Monetary Fund is wringing its hands over the state of the US’s public finances under Donald Trump’s administration. The organization says the near-term outlook for the US economy couldn’t be rosier. Next year, the US is expected to mark its longest economic expansion on record, and the job market is in the midst of an unprecedented stretch of growth.

It won’t last.

Trump’s tax cuts and spending boost will help increase growth in the short term, but build up risks further in the future, the IMF says. The IMF is forecasting a gradual economic slowdown out to 2020, but says such a path would be “historically unusual” and may prove to be too optimistic. “The output gap could close more abruptly, through a policy-induced recession, with negative spillovers for the global economy,” the IMF says.

The report published today comes after an official IMF staff visit to the US, a routine process for member countries. It forecasts real GDP growth of 2.9% this year and 2.7% next year. But then it falls steeply, to 1.9% in 2020, and—eventually—1.4% in 2023.

The combination of tax cuts and higher defense and discretionary spending will cause the federal government deficit to exceed 4.5% of GDP in 2019, according to the IMF, nearly double what it was three years ago. “Such a strongly procyclical fiscal policy is quite rare in the US context and has not been seen since the Johnson administration in the 1960s,” the report says.

A deficit of this size would make America’s “already unsustainable” debt path even worse. The US is the only country the IMF expects to boost its debt-to-GDP ratio over the next five years. There are plenty more risks for the US (a surprise increase in inflation), for the rest of the world (money flowing out of emerging markets and back into the US dollar, making it even harder for countries to pay off dollar-denominated debt), and for both (the rise of protectionism).

The IMF has a few ideas about what the US can do to reduce its debt levels, including reforming social security, raising the retirement age, a broad-based carbon tax, and containing healthcare cost inflation. Thus far, warnings about the combination of tax cuts, increased spending, and protectionism don’t appear to be gaining much traction.

FBI agent Peter Strzok texted he would "stop" Trump winning the 2016 election — Quartz
Could Trump win the election? “We’ll stop it,” an FBI agent texted in 2016 June 14, 2018 at 02:01PM https://ift.tt/2HNttHa

FBI agent Peter Strzok texted his lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, that they would “stop” Donald Trump winning the 2016 election, according to multiple stories about an upcoming report into the FBI’s handling of its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.

“[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Page wrote to Strzok, according to the Washington Post (paywall).

“No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it,” Strzok replied, the Post and Bloomberg report. The stories cite a report by the Justice Department’s inspector general, expected to be released at 2pm today.

In December, Robert Mueller removed Strzok (paywall) from his probe into foreign meddling in the 2016 election. The pair have been frequently cited by Donald Trump as evidence that the FBI sought to undermine him and put Hillary Clinton in power during the 2016 election. The US president tweeted about the lovers as recently as this month.

However, the report didn’t find any evidence that any “improper considerations, including political bias” had a direct affect on the FBI’s handling of Clinton’s emails, inspector general Michael Horowitz writes, according to Bloomberg.

Horowitz also criticizes then-FBI director James Comey’s handling of the case, saying he departed “clearly and dramatically” from FBI norms, Bloomberg reports, and that there was a “troubling lack of any direct, substantive communication” between Comey and then attorney general Loretta Lynch, ahead of Comey’s June 5 press conference, in which he lambasted Clinton.
