Review by Ian McArdell Space 1999 Volume 1 continues Big Finish’s vivid reimagining of the late 1970s Gerry Anderson classic. After launching with the show’s pilot episode, refashioned as an epic audio movie, this boxset moves us into the realm of regular episodes. While remaining faithful to the spirit of the original, this first set holds two original stories and one adaptation. The first…

From the January 25, 2021 round-up:
[Lara] Trump, 38, the president’s daughter-in-law, who emerged during the 2020 presidential campaign as a fierce defender of Mr. Trump, has been eyeing an electoral future of her own in North Carolina, her home state. She and her husband, Eric Trump, have yet to relocate their family from New York, but in the months leading up to the presidential election, she had been actively considering a rare Senate seat that will open there in 2022, when Senator Richard Burr retires at the end of his term, people familiar with her plans said.
...
[Ivanka Trump’s] advisers say she is weighing her options when it comes to elected office. That includes not popping a trial balloon about a potential primary challenge next year to Mr. Rubio, who Republican critics note could be vulnerable because he did not vote to sustain any objections to the state’s electors.
Other observers have dismissed that scenario as a difficult way to begin a political career and said Mr. Rubio needed to take it less seriously after the Capitol riot on Jan. 6. Running for state office is off the table for Ms. Trump because Florida law requires seven years of residency. Some people who know her say that her ambitions are higher, that she likes the ring of “first female president” and that there’s simply no downside to keeping her name afloat.
...
[Kayleigh] McEnany, for her part, has already relocated to her home state, Florida, and there was briefly some talk of her mounting her own bid for the Senate, a person familiar with those conversations said. But it’s not clear how serious it was.
...
[Donald Trump Jr.’s] advisers insist that he’s not interested in being a candidate anytime in the near future — partly because there is not a clear office for him to run for right now. That hasn’t stopped strategists from floating his name as a potential candidate in states including Montana and Florida. For now, the advisers said, he wants to stay engaged and relevant politically, along with his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, helping to elect conservatives he likes and to take down the ones he doesn’t.
...
[Mark] Meadows still lives in Washington and has no immediate plans to move back to North Carolina, his home state. His wife has speculated that he should run for president in 2024, according to people familiar with those conversations. But his friends have not ruled out a future run for Senate or governor in North Carolina, and [Lara] Trump’s fading interest in the North Carolina Senate race could give him back an opening.

Pressure is growing on President Trump to leave office before his term ends due to his role in the deadly riots that consumed Capitol Hill this week.
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) on Friday became the first Senate Republican to call on Trump to resign after he whipped up a crowd he summoned to Washington, D.C., to protest President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory.
Democrats have drawn up articles of impeachment citing an “incitement of insurrection” and Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) has said he’d consider voting to remove Trump from office if the House votes to impeach him again.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) are pushing Vice President Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment, which would require the support of half of the president’s Cabinet. There had been limited talk among administration officials about the 25th Amendment but it seems unlikely now that two of the president’s Cabinet secretaries have resigned.
The president is increasingly isolated. He has been abandoned by his allies and has few defenders, as administration officials resign in disgust and blame the president for inciting the deadly riot.
Most Republicans may be content with Trump riding out the final 12 days of his administration.
There appears to be minimal GOP support for impeachment, and efforts to oust him through the 25th Amendment have stalled.
Trump also seems unlikely to resign on his own. One source close to the president flatly rejected the prospect of Trump resigning before Jan. 20.
Biden on Friday indicated that there is such little time left that the best option may just be to ride it out.
“It’s important we get on with the business of getting him out of office,” Biden said. “The quickest way that will happen is us being sworn in on the 20th. What action happens before or after that is the judgment of Congress to make, but that’s what I’m looking forward to — him leaving office.”
“If we were six months out, we should be doing everything to get him out of office, impeaching him again, trying to invoke the 25th Amendment, whatever it took to get him out of office. But I’m focused now on us taking control as president and vice president on January 20,” he added.
That the president could be impeached as soon as next week underscores the fury lawmakers are feeling as they assess the president’s culpability in the deadly Capitol Hill riots.
“I want him to resign,” Murkowski told the Anchorage Daily News. “I want him out. He has caused enough damage.”
As of Friday, at least eight administration officials — including two members of Trump’s Cabinet — had resigned from their positions after the riots.
Some plan to remain in their roles to wait the following two weeks out. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow plans to stay on for the remainder of Trump’s term but will take some vacation during the final two weeks. Other officials, like national security adviser Robert O’Brien, have been urged to remain on by GOP senators amid fears there could be a mass exodus of officials. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows has remained silent publicly since the violent episode on Wednesday that took place in the halls he once worked.  
In determining whether to finish his term, Trump must consider protecting himself from legal action now that five people have died during the raid on Congress, including a Capitol Hill police officer.
Trump has reportedly mused about potentially issuing himself a pardon after a slew of commutations to his political allies that have been criticized by some as an abuse of power. Trump’s lawyers are advising him on how to protect himself from criminal charges and those discussions could impact how and when he leaves office.
Acting U.S. attorney Michael Sherwin said this week the Justice Department had not ruled out charging the president, saying his office would go after “anyone who had a role and where the evidence fits a crime.”
Conservative legal experts wondered if there was enough time to go through impeachment deliberations in the short time before the president is scheduled to leave office.
“Given the time frame involved, it seems unlikely they could figure out a way to make any of these things happen,” said Mark Braden, the former chief counsel for the Republican National Committee. “If it was December, all or any of this might succeed. But right now I don’t know that you can get there.”
Still, there is roiling anger at Trump among Republicans and the riot has made it easier for many in the party to call for extreme measures over what they view as a threat to public safety.
One former White House official, ex-communications director Alyssa Farah, told CNN on Friday that Trump should “seriously consider” resigning from office and acknowledged that he lied to the American public about the election.
Trump’s own resignation is a long shot, according to aides. It could be an option for him if he believes he will be impeached and removed, which would prevent him from running for president again in 2024.
Most expect him to ride out the rest of his term. He is likely to issue pardons, perhaps even to his family or himself in his final days, before flying to Florida.
The president said Friday he will not attend Biden’s inauguration, becoming the first outgoing president since 1876 to not do so. There is speculation that Trump and his family will leave on the 19th for Mar-a-Lago.
Current and former allies are cautiously hopeful that Trump will not do further damage to the nation or foment more unrest in his limited time left in office, suggesting the prospect of legal jeopardy could rein him in.
In taped remarks released late Thursday, Trump condemned the violence at the Capitol without ever acknowledging the role he or his supporters played in it. He called for tempers to cool and said he would focus on ensuring a smooth transition.
But in a reminder of his unpredictability, Trump issued a tweet on Friday morning that was far more encouraging of his backers and did not give any indication the president was prepared to cede the stage.

Fur-clad man who entered Capitol says he acted after Trump put out...
“The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future,” Trump tweeted. “They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”

Advisers have expressed concern and anger over Mark Meadows, the chief of staff, whose actions have been perceived as an effort to secure employment with Trump in his post-presidency, perhaps at the Trump Organization. “Jared has been telling people, ‘Don’t even deal with him anymore,’” one adviser said. “Mark’s responsible for bringing kook after crazy after conniver after Rudy into the West Wing.” (“This is completely false,” Avi Berkowitz, Jared Kushner’s spokesman, said in a tweet responding to this article, “Jared has never said that.”) A former senior White House official said, “Morale plummeted under him, huge mistakes were made — and now he’s scrambling to stick around after. He’s a dishonest asshole who pretends to be this religious Southern gentleman. Fuck that.”
The senior administration official put it this way: “The only way it gets to this point are a thousand really bad small decisions. The first time Sidney Powell calls the White House switchboard and is allowed to speak to the president, the next thing you know she and others are in the West Wing — these are areas where the chief of staff has unilateral authority to do what he wants to do.” Instead, the official said, Meadows tells Trump what he wants to hear, and often calls whomever Trump has directed him to call, repeats what Trump told him to say, and then apologizes, explaining that he just needs to be able to tell the boss that he followed his orders.
Meanwhile, the yes-men are countered mostly by the lawyers, who have tried to convey to Trump that he has put himself at risk of prosecution, not just by inciting Wednesday’s riot — for which the Justice Department is reportedly open to pursuing charges — but for his phone call to Georgia election officials, in which he attempted to pressure them to overturn the results, as well as in the many ongoing investigations related to his businesses and finances.
“It’s a lot to adjust to. If you think you’re going to be there for four more years, it’s a bit jarring,” the adviser said. “The smart lawyers have gotten to him. It’s all hit him since yesterday: You may have legal exposure from yesterday. You definitely have legal exposure from other things. You have less than two weeks to remain ensconced in here with executive privilege.”
