Have recent years taught us anything? How reliable is scheduled travel in today's day and age?

I would guess that a Chosid would want to be extra careful about the Rebbe's directives (Sukkos appropriate) הואיל דנפיק מפומיה דרב כהנא.
Uh. Pretty incredibly reliable, assuming you're not trying to fly within a couple days of the deadline.

Do we just consume anything that's כשר ע"פ דינא דשו"ע, or are most here מהדר beyond that?

People don't even know about this הוראה

People choose what they want to know. אב"א sometimes the Pravda editorial board chooses what people should know.

No rain is being forecasted, please think of others and don't pray for it.

We eat in the Sukkah in the rain on שמיני עצרת too.

We could have gone the next day. Wasn't worth it with little kids and lost bags.

This is an absurd argument when there's at least a week to play with.

When the Algemeiner Jurnal printed a picture of the Rebbe motioning for people to whistle, there was backlash from people saying whistling is wrong. The Rebbe later asked why the chassidim got embarrassed and weren't able to answer. Then the Rebbe proceeded to source his behavior in Torah, going back layer by layer until he quoted a possuk in Na"ch.
Is what the Rebbe said about this written up anywhere?

Chabad has changed from chasideher people Davening, learning, and farbranging on roish choidesh Kislev, to people who start thier day with daf yoimy and attend secular Zionist rallies

It hasn't changed; it's grown to include more types of people. Chabad also used to be chasidisher people who had immense ahavas yisroel and knew nothing about technology, and now includes people who cr@p on others anonymously on internet forums. It's a new world.
Freedom of the press is alive at the US Mint.

Were there many Lubavitchers deliberately not going because of this? Please tell me yes. (absent the Daf Yomi part)

ישראל, אף על פי שלא חטא, ישראל הוא!

Sooner or later those daf yoimi learners can be convinced to finish the shas off schedule.

Is it a legit thing to print the Tanya in every country? brief google search seems to say only where there is a Jewish community.

Tanya being printed in Gaza now.

Started my day studying V'yiten lecha 5728 with @Jolu, learned today's Tanya, davened, got an aliya, read Hayom Yom/Sefer Hamitzvos for the shul, learned perek mem tehilim, bought and made a shehechiynu on a persimmon, spoke to a local shliach and rov about how to go about bringing down a new shliach to town.

See what happens when you attend rallies with 300,000 united Jews and do mivtzoim there! Hashem yeracheim!

It's hopeless, but that doesn't mean we stop trying.
That way after 120 I'll have what to defend myself with.
