Trumpcare Is Coming to a House Vote. It Could Even Pass.

quote [ There has been one end game strategy with Trumpcare for a month: Eventually just put the bill on the floor, and dare members to side either with it or with Obamacare. This will be put to its test Friday, after a Thursday of collapsing negotiations and ongoing recriminations surrounding the ACA. ]

The holdouts will probably fall in line today. Otherwise, they'll be a bunch of Losers.

UPDATE: THEY PULLED IT. THE CLOSER COULDN'T CLOSE THE DEAL.

Putin critic who denounced annexation of Crimea shot dead

quote [ A former Russian MP has been shot and killed in the centre of the Ukrainian capital of Kiev, in what the Ukrainian President described as an ?act of state terrorism?by Russia. Denis Voronenkov, who testified to Ukrainian investigators and criticised Moscow?s illegal annexation of Crimea, was shot dead by an unidentified gunman near the entrance of an upscale hotel. ]

Russian politics, although not actually in Russia.

What In The World Is Devin Nunes Up To?

quote [ In his second hastily called press briefing on Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) did little to quell a storm of speculation he kicked up hours earlier by divulging that the intelligence community ?incidentally collected? information about President Donald Trump and his staff during the transition.

Nunes rushed to the White House to brief Trump on his recent findings at the same time that his committee is in the middle of an ongoing investigation into Russia?s interference in the election, which includes a probe into ties between Trump allies and Russian officials. ]

Nunes just shit on his own Congressional investigation. Another step closer to the inevitable independent comission.

HOUSE HARDLINERS SAY THEY?VE STOPPED TRUMPCARE

quote [ ?They don?t have the votes to pass this tomorrow,? House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) told reporters on Wednesday. ?We believe that they need to start over and do a bill that actually reduces premiums.? ]

Never thought it would die from the right, always thought it would die in the senate from the left.

Bernie Sanders? Campaign Faced A Fake News Tsunami. Where Did It Come From?

quote [ The trolls set out to distract and divide the invigorated left.

Bev Cowling, 64, saw a sudden deluge of requests to join the Sanders Facebook groups she administered from her home in Toney, Alabama. All of a sudden, they were getting 80 to 100 requests to join each day. She and the other administrators couldn?t vet everyone, and the posts started getting bizarre. ?It came in like a wave, like a tsunami,? she said. ?It was like a flood of misinformation.?

?Russia?s information war might be thought of as the biggest trolling operation in history,? and its target is nothing less than the utility of the Internet as a democratic space.? ]

A very interesting read, about how social media has been rendered practically useless as a medium for discussion or organizing.

Russians not only ones screwing with US, it?s Americans

quote [ the whole fascinating thing, the Citizens United unleashed the Mercers, it unleashed a lot of powerful wealthy people. But this go-round this election cycle, it seems like it unleashed the Mercers on us, and this is really one of the first times that we're actually able to have an understanding of who they are, how they worked throughout this campaign, first backing Ted Cruz then switching over to Donald Trump ]

This is an important news story, missed by most main stream news.

Murder in the Lucky Holiday Hotel

quote [ How a British fixer's murder helped one man dominate China ]

A long read. A very long read. The beautiful web page design helps you through it though. From the BBC.
