Talking Jamie Dimon With Sam Seder of 'The Majority Report'

http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/blogs/taibblog/talking-jamie-dimon-with-sam-seder-of-the-majority-report-20131001

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of joining old friend Sam Seder on The Majority Report. Among other topics, we talked about the surreal exchange between CNBC dingbat Maria Bartiromo and Salon's amazed and incredulous Alex Pareene about Chase CEO Jamie Dimon. Pareene hilariously told the CNBC panel that anybody could do Jamie Dimon's job as badly as he's done it, offered himself in half-seriousness as an option and made the absolutely accurate point that any other boss in any other industry who had overseen the regulatory problems that took place at Chase under Dimon would be looking for work.

"If you managed a restaurant, and it got the biggest health department fine in the history of restaurants," Pareene said sensibly, "no one would say 'Yeah, but the restaurant’s making a lot of money. There’s only a little bit of poison in the food.'"...

“9 Million Moms And Babies At Risk As WIC Program Halts”

http://www.forbes.com/sites/clareoconnor/2013/10/02/government-shutdown-9-million-moms-and-babies-at-risk-as-wic-program-halts/

“Over 8.9 million moms and kids under five living near or below the poverty line rely on the program’s supplemental vouchers for healthy food, breastfeeding support, infant formula and other necessities dispensed at clinics nationwide. The USDA estimates that most states will be able to continue WIC operations as usual for ‘a week or so’ before running out of money. The department’s Food and Nutrition Service has a contingency fund of only $125 million available for this $7 billion annual appropriation.”

Shutdown in “collision course” with debt limit

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/10/collision-course-continuing-resolution-debt-ceiling-congress-government-shutdown-97693.html

“…if the standoff continues to creep toward the Oct. 17 deadline to raise the $16.7 trillion national debt ceiling, the two issues will become intertwined — and potentially intractable. House Republican leaders and top Senate Democrats privately began discussing this increasingly likely possibility Tuesday, but the two sides have yet to engage in any direct negotiations in the acrimonious budget dispute.”

[VIDEO] Republicans try to deflect blame by proposing to fund bits of government

http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/01/politics/government-shutdown/index.html

“The Republican-led House offered its latest gambit on Tuesday night but failed in separate votes to approve piecemeal funding for three specific programs — the District of Columbia, veterans affairs and national parks … House leadership aides say the plan is to bring up the same measures again Wednesday in a way that would require only a simple majority to pass … the Democratic-led Senate wasn’t about to acquiesce and the White House promised a veto.”

Conservatives Celebrate Shutdown Of Government They Hate

http://ourfuture.org/20131002/conservatives-celebrate-shutdown-of-government-they-hate

Republicans are exercising the one power that the American People have not yet been able to take away from them: the power to destroy. Conservatives are “giddy” over shutting down the government. This is who they are.

“We’re very excited,” said Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.). “It’s exactly what we wanted, and we got it.”...

THE REIGN OF MORONS IS HERE

http://www.esquire.com/blogs/politics/Shutdown_Blues

Only the truly child-like can have expected anything else.

In the year of our Lord 2010, the voters of the United States elected the worst Congress in the history of the Republic. There have been Congresses more dilatory. There have been Congresses more irresponsible, though not many of them. There have been lazier Congresses, more vicious Congresses, and Congresses less capable of seeing forests for trees. But there has never been in a single Congress -- or, more precisely, in a single House of the Congress -- a more lethal combination of political ambition, political stupidity, and political vainglory than exists in this one, which has arranged to shut down the federal government because it disapproves of a law passed by a previous Congress, signed by the president, and upheld by the Supreme Court, a law that does nothing more than extend the possibility of health insurance to the millions of Americans who do not presently have it, a law based on a proposal from a conservative think-tank and taken out on the test track in Massachusetts by a Republican governor who also happens to have been the party's 2012 nominee for president of the United States. That is why the government of the United States is, in large measure, closed this morning...

Moving The Goalposts: CNN Now Says Gingrich Is "Not In Violation" Of Network Rules

http://mediamatters.org/blog/2013/09/27/moving-the-goalposts-cnn-now-says-gingrich-is-n/196120

In an apparent reversal, CNN now says that Crossfire co-host Newt Gingrich is not actually violating network standards by failing to disclose his PAC's financial relationship with politicians discussed on the program.

Rick Davis, CNN's Executive Vice President of News Standards and Practices, issued a statement to Media Matters saying the network is "clarifying" its ethics policy, and that Gingrich is "not in violation" of network rules...
