  •  Meanwhile on the TPP front, Glenn Greenwald (12+ / 0-)

    This "trade" agreement is another place that the secret government is dealing with out future.

    bobswern has written extensively about the subject and hopefully it will become a major issue for the public to push back on the congress to prevent its passage in the form of Fast Track without debate

    Glenn's tweets are mostly about national security and journalism

    Yesterday he had 5 tweets about TPP

    The main intersection of his work with TPP are the provisions to restrict the internet and other information systems that we found about in the secret document published by wikileaks

    another point that Glenn has been making for years, something that can serve as fuel for critics, is alliances with groups on an issue by issue basis. For example, some libertarians are in favor of dropping criminal handling of drugs. Two years ago when he spoke in Columbus he made the explicit point that both parties are in agreement on the major issues and they are thus off the table of national debate and so the way to get out of the circle is to join forces with groups on an issue by issue basis and defy traditional left/right game.

    in that line we have:
