Year 6, Weeks 49-50 (December 18-31)


Hello, and welcome to 2023! The last few weeks of the year went much like the rest of 2022 did: There were some wins, some rough moments, and a lot of “what just happened.”

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 a report!–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 end of the year remained a relatively frenetic time for Election Rejection news. Here’s what has happened:


The Biden Rebuilding updates are once again mostly legislative, but they’re nonetheless big news for Biden.  Here’s what I have for you:


Your New Normal:


The Bad:


The Good:


So that’s all I have from the holidays, and here’s hoping it doesn’t get worse. For making it through, you deserve this cat eating a sweet potato 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 notes about your tai chi exercises!
