Well done, Jeff. Thanks.
One hell of a “trade deal”. This thing might warrant a whole new kind of label for agreements among a large group of countries. And with the other big trade deal in progress with the EU, it makes me wonder what’s in that one, which I haven’t been paying attention to.
Does anyone know who the main players behind this trade deal are? Is there a fairly small group of people who own this thing or do we know how the whole thing got started?
In any case, I’m glad the activism is gaining momentum. It really looked like this thing was a freight train that couldn’t be stopped.
Oh is he kissing up to Maya MacGranny-Starver again?! I remember that last episode at the Wall Street Journal Breakfast of Clowns.
Let’s just hope he’s not sending any pics on Twitter to MacGranny-Starver. Even the thought of it is a cotton candy spewing risk.
It’s weird. I went to the Bigtop watching the Grand Bargain Circus for the matinee, there were whole sections filled with filled with people in the same exact t-shirts. Everyone wearing the red shirts were in on big section and everyone wearing the identical blue shirts sat in one of the other big sections. Since [...]
LOL, love the satire and the second clown picture had me ROFL. Of course my amusement is gallows humor and a sort of amazement at the lengths to which these guys will go. It’s also amazing to watch the House Dems step up to the microphone, one after the other and read their script. One [...]

Really good work here, Jane. Very helpful. Thanks for the up-to-the-minute info about the votes.
I assume that the vote count on the Senate is a given (that they will pass te resolution)? Can we find that info anywhere? I’ve only got one Senator at the moment and there’s no doubt he’s voting for it as chair of Foreign Relations committee.

20committee is obsessed with Greenwald and Snowden and this isn’t the first time I’ve seen a homophobic slant to his tweets.
This is such a no brainer, an absurdly tiny tax, but Wall Street acts like it would be the end of the world. But even if it keeps getting knocked down, I hope that members of Congress keep bringing it back. This is one thing that if it turns into zombie legislation, I would cheer for it.
Rush Holt’s constituents have the best bumper stickers: “My Congressman is a rocket scientist”.
Thanks for the heads up, DSWright.
Gee thanks, Mary Jo White!
The baby boomer generation is much loathed by some, but they are also the most exploited generation, IMHO. Everybody is always looking to make a killing off the boomers. And now it’s interesting that as the boomers are getting older and less sharp, and maybe spending more time in front of a tv, these investment commercials are going to be allowed. You can’t get a decent return on your money from a bank and no doubt these ads will target people on a fixed income looking to increase the returns on their principal a bit.

Good story, DSWright. My view of Buzzfeed’s management has changed a lot in the past few weeks, and not for the better.

This needs to go viral.
Courage is contagious.

Oh my god.
You have to wonder if these guys who lie for a living even know the difference between the truth and the lies anymore.

As always, joe, excellent work.

Whether or not they have to cough up records, I’m glad to see a judge taking this action.
joanneleon commented on the blog post Former Intel Director Driving Surveillance State Forward For Profit
One man pushing the entire country into big data espionage and many others enabling him, all of it for money.
At the expense of everyone else.
It’s out of control. And at the same time cutting an already pathetic food stamps program and a lot of other domestic programs.
joanneleon commented on the blog post Obama’s Plan To Aid Al-Qaeda Linked Rebels Not Going Over Well
I just saw this on twitter from a woman in UAE:
[Jenan Moussa @jenanmoussa
A diplomat told me today I might have to cut my holiday short due to urgent developments in #Syria. Eyes open. Let's see.]
I also saw something saying Saudis would surprise everyone very soon. No idea how credible that is. A Politico guy retweeted it seemingly jokingly. I don’t know who the 47th is. Location says Syria. Al Jazeera is reporting that Saudi Arabia sent anti-aircraft missiles to rebels. Reuters says the missiles came from France and Belgium and France paid for the shipping. So many proxies, it’s hard to tell who’s doing what.
[Blake Hounshell @blakehounshell
Free sand? RT @THE_47th: Saudi Arabia, will be surprising everyone very, very soon.]
