Year 6, Week 47 (December 4-10)


The news was conspicuously quiet this week, all things considered, which makes me suspicious that it is planning something. In the short term, I’ll take the quiet news week, but let’s all brace for the worst over the holidays just to be on the safe side.

Standard standing reminders still apply: I guess after six years I’m conceding that I’m a journalist, but I summarize news within my areas of expertise. NNR summaries often contain some detailed analysis that’s outside my expertise–I’m a lawyer, not an election!–but all offroad adventures are marked with an asterisk. And, of course, for the things that are within my lane, I’m offering context that shouldn’t be considered legal advice. Okay, I think that’s about it for the disclaimers.  Onward to the news!      


Cleanup in Aisle 45:

The flow of Election Rejection stories is starting to lessen a bit as I type this, but there’s still a lot to cover. Here’s what has happened:


The Biden Rebuilding updates this week are really more about the legislative side, but they do involve Biden’s agenda pretty directly.  Here’s what I have for you:


Your New Normal:


The Bad:


The Good:


So that’s all I have for this week, and for that, we can all be grateful. For making it through, you deserve this baby pangolin spa day and a more functional government.  I’ll be back next week with more restructured and improved news, and I hope you will be back as well–but in the meantime, feel free to ping the National News Roundup ask box, which is there for your constructive comments.  Send me questions! Send me feedback! Send me blueprints for my house in Valheim!
