Developer tells NJ appeals court any delay in approving funding will kill long-stalled project
This week could prove to be a make-or-break one for the long-stalled American Dream megamall in the Meadowlands, thanks to a court ruling on the developer’s controversial $1.15 billion state-assisted finance plan that could be released at any time.
And then what will I blog about?
Undecided Pennsylvania voters who didn't love Hillary said they liked her more after she criticized private prisons https://t.co/qnJpFKDtEb— Betsy Woodruff (@woodruffbets) September 27, 2016
As Woodruff notes, it's the Kids for Cash scandal. When a judge sells kids (and, it should be noted, too many of the "wrong" type of kids. you know, the ones you can get the media to actually care about) to for profit juvenile facilities, people start to care...
Donald doesn't know anything about foreign policy, or the wider world, but neither does just about anybody else who claims to who works in politics. What people on the teevee know, some of them anyway, is "foreign policy," the very narrow set of agreed upon Washington Conventional wisdom about the types of things Very Serious People are supposed to say about "foreign policy." In other words, they've memorized some arbitrary rulebook, but they've never actually tried to play the game. Or seen it played.
As for economics, once you get outside the general Republican "taxes bad regulations bad," which is nonsense that Very Serious People have agreed isn't nonsense, the economic critique from the Right, which I suppose you'd called the Right's economic populism, is genuinely gibberish. Their critiques of trade and trade deals and the Fed are complete gibberish (not that these things are above criticism, just that the criticisms from the Right usually make no sense. They aren't just wrong, they don't follow logically from one statement to the next.) Still, it sounds good to a lot of people. Your ranty drunk racist white uncle is an archetype because there are a lot of ranty drunk racist white uncles, and they all kinda sound like that.
I'd say on theater it wasn't a great night. He let That Woman get the better of him, and that's an unforgivable sin. On "substance," he gave the people what they want.

You're right. I shouldn't have said that & I'm sorry that I did.He did mislead us and was wrong about it, however. https://t.co/t3V4z4RHpz— Stephanie Cutter (@stefcutter) September 25, 2016
I guess saying someone "lied" a capital felony, while its close synonym "mislead" is just a misdemeanor because reasons? DC is a funny place.
