Dave Johnson and Marcy Wheeler wrote posts in December referring to Jimmy Carter's "Malaise Speech" and its relationship to where the United States is today. Marcy and Dave describe some key inflection points we can expect to see in 2016, ranging from the impact of climate change policy to the Saudi/Iranian axis' impact on the Middle East and US policy. Also, the effect of the Transpacific Partnership (TPP) on American policy and politics, and the role of declining middle class wages on the Presidential election. Jay Ackroyd hosts.
Marcy's post "Obama’s Terrorism Cancer Speech, Carter’s Malaise Speech" https://www.emptywheel.net/2015/12/12/obamas-cancer-speech-carters-malaise-speech/ Dave has several at Seeing the Forest.

This week on Livelihood Show, host Marcy Rosenbaum presents a career navigation strategy that rides change instead of trying to manage it.
This week’s introduction to the Livelihood Show interview of Marcy Rosenbaum was conducted by Anna Drezen, an actor, writer and producer living in New York City. She interviewed Marcy using an adaptation of the famous Proust questionnaire featured by James Lipton on Inside the Actors' Studio....
“Marcy Rosenbaum is the host of "Livelihood," a weekly radio show about career paths in transition. She left her corporate job to pursue her dream of talk radio, and the show aims to help others figure out how to start fresh with a career they love. I'm not sure which I like more: her infectiously positive attitude, or her voice, which is like a fountain of warm Nutella.”
AD: What's your relationship to the theme of the show?
Marcy Rosenbaum: In my past career, I was a consultant. It was like being an actor. I couldn't act until someone gave me a role. I was on the shelf until someone cast me. I wanted to be more like a musician: a musician can play whenever they want; they just have to get an idea of how to make money at it.
Marcy Wheeler (@emptywheel EmptyWheel Blog) and Dave Johnson (@dcjohnson Seeing the Forest) have a lot to talk about. Nobody ('cept Newt) wants to be Speaker of the House. Transpacific Partnership agreement is reached. What does that mean for the 99%, and national sovereignty. And, at last, Sanders and Clinton meet sorta face to face in the first Democratic primary debate.
Understanding US public policy, both domestic and foreign, is impossible without considering the role of intelligence operations, government, contracted to government and private. The roles of domestic surveillance, foreign infilitration, and exploits directed at US assets are not reported in traditional media unless the breaches are yawning.
Marcy Wheeler is on this beat, and reports upon it at emptywheel.net. We discuss espionage and its role in contemporary policy making.
from Wiki: 'Human Intelligence (frequently abbreviated HUMINT) is intelligence gathered by means of interpersonal contact, as opposed to the more technical intelligence gathering disciplines such as signals intelligence (SIGINT), imagery intelligence (IMINT) and measurement and signature intelligence (MASINT).'

Marcy Wheeler, automotive expert, briefly discusses the race for the first driverless car.
Then we discuss the use, and misuse, of "crazy" as a way of describing Republicans on the Tea Party wing. Marcy argues that in an envrionment of absolutely insane policy like the US in Syria, or the F35 fighter project, we should be careful when throwing the C word around. One of the Village centrists' crazy policies is domestic surveillance--massive violations of the Fourth Amendment that Freedom Party Republicans work against. CISA, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act comes up. You can read some background on CISA and follow all these stories on emptywheel.net.
Domestic security is getting pretty complicated, what with miliarized police operations, cameras documenting events that were previously unaccessible, "non-lethal" weapons that aren't really, and a really extensive internal security system. Marcy Wheeler and digby discuss these issues. Marcy summarizes the current understanding of who and how American citizens are being surveilled. Digby has been on the taser front from the beginning.
Crime rates are way down. Incarceration rates are an embarrassment, pointlessly ruining the lives of millions of Americans. Police departments are more diverse, especially in urban centers. A consensus against the drug war seems to be growing--but the Feds and the local asset seizure programs don't want to acknowledge that consensus.
Marcy has won three Golden Mike awards for outstanding news writing and broadcasting. With her co-author Jackie Hirtz, Marcy wrote television scripts for Nickelodeon's animated show "Doug"and educational software. Now, Marcy and Jackie have teamed up to write the Lola Zola series for tween girls. The first book in the series is "Lola Zola and the Lemonade Crush" and the second novel, with many of the same characters, is "New Girl on Salt Flat Road."
Jackie Hirtz, MS Ed., worked in publicity and public relations for authors and tech clients. She also taught elementary school for seven years before working as a writer in Concepts and Communications at Disney Imagineering and as an assistant to a producer at the studio. In addition to writing educational material for teachers and students, she created interactive "edutainment" for themed entertainment companies. Jackie's credits include Disney, the Los Angeles Times, Canter & Associates, and the Brentwood Media Group. Together, she and Marcy wrote for children's television, including Nickelodeon's animated series "Doug."
USA Freedom Act: passed by relative landslide this week in GOP House, awaiting Senate action, reportedly ends direct state bulk collection of phone records revealed (again) by Snowden, forces telecoms into bulk collection role
Second Circuit Appeals court ruled this month that the Patriot Act did not, in fact, authorize the massive vacuuming up of people's communication data undertaken by U.S. spy agencies, despite ubiquitous, off-record claims to the contrary by "the intelligence community"
Court records can give the public some idea as to how the telecom oligopolies are responding to both of these events, indications being that a likely scenario is the largely unabated supply of communications information to the government
On May 31st of this year, Section 215 of the Patriot Act --used to support claims that nationwide, communications dragnet collection is authorized by law-- is expiring
Cyberwar-- NSA's dual responsibility of defending US networks and acquiring offensive capability for exploits like Stuxnet.
