Sounds like "release the Kracken!," doesn't it?; "The federal government’s funding authorization expires tonight at midnight, and the Republican plan to renew it bodes poorly for the GOP’s leadership of Congress next year;" The Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on CIA "torture" benefits no one but our enemies and politicians looking to re-litigate previous presidential administrations; U.S. Climate "Fair Share" 82% emissions cut by 2030? Plus $810 billion in climate debt payments annually to poor countries? That ain't happening; Democrats are abandoning all strategic electoral sense along with the South. and, time permitting, today's Morning Jolt.
