“The tweets make it much more difficult for us as we try to build a case against these leakers,” said Representative Peter T. King, a New York Republican who sits on the Intelligence Committee. “We always have to be answering questions about the tweets — it puts us on defense all the time when we could be building a case for the president.” - NYT

Sign of the Times

"These days, journalists in the White House press pool spend hours in the conference room of a public library across the road from the ornate gates and view-obstructing hedges of Trump International, harboring suspicions that the president is playing golf but never receiving official confirmation." -NYT

Occupy Cocktail?

A lot of people have been wondering, why the studied silence from Toxic Cocktail, with all this Occupy Wall Street stuff going on around the world? Is it a massive media conspiracy? Well, no, it's not that. It's just that after much thought, I can't deny that the official beverage of Occupy is beer. It's the drink of the people. It's the drink that can double as a meal. And it's the drink that doesn't totally screw up your commitment to peaceful protest.

One less LNG proposal in the US

Hess LNG is pulling out of its project in Fall River, Mass. The market just isn't there for imported natural gas, they said. This one never really had a chance. It was a logistical nightmare and was opposed by powerful people like John Kerry and Barney Frank. It scared a lot of people, and now that it's officially off the table, I want to thank it for strengthening the anti-LNG movement.
