The most important thing happening in the student loan market is states stepping up to protect their borrowers. And the reason why is simple: they know that the student debt crisis isn't something in the horizon. It is here.
Data from @NewYorkFed demonstrate what states are facing. Here are a few quick stats:
In the last year, 46 states saw an increase in student loan debt, and 26 saw it jump over 5% in that time.

#Midterms2018 : plus de 39 millions d’électeurs ont voté par anticipation. C'est un record historique : en 2014, ce chiffre était de 20,5 millions. v/@ElectProject electproject.org/early_2018
#Midterms2018 : dans tous le pays, les chiffres de la participation le jour du vote semblent aussi largement au-dessus de la normale, et ils dépassent même parfois ceux enregistrés en 2016. Pour rappel, la participation lors des midterms est généralement inférieure de 20 points.
#Midterms2018 : à #Nashville, la participation est déjà supérieure à celle de 2016. La mobilisation dans ce bastion démocrate du très conservateur #Tennessee est essentielle pour que @PhilBredesen conserve une chance d'être élu Sénateur.

THREAD: Here’s every race in 2018 #Midterms where you can vote for weed legalization or against some old asshole blocking legalization. And oh yeah, help save democracy.
In #Michigan, Proposal 18-1 would legalize cannabis including flowers, concentrates and edibles. Plus you can grow 12 plants at home! freep.com/story/opinion/…
In #Missouri, three competing legalization measures are on the ballot. Measure 2 is backed by local grassroots activists. The other two are pretty sketchy. My colleagues at @Leafly break it down in detail. leafly.com/news/politics/…

I was just threatened by Suzanne Staiert, #Colorado Deputy Secretary of State, who demanded I stop my exposé of her boss, Wayne W. Williams. gregpalast.com/colorado-voter…
Suzanne Staiert, #Colorado Deputy Secretary of State, said: "You mentioned the Secretary of State within 30 days of an election which could be a violation requiring you to register as a political action committee."
I noted that I am a reporter — and they are saying a reporter cannot mention the Secretary of State’s name within 30 days of an election! Really? gregpalast.com/colorado-voter… #ColoradoPurgeLists

ALERT! #Colorado Secretary of State Wayne W. Williams has stonewalled our request for complete info about the voters he has purged—that is, CANCELLED off the voter rolls. gregpalast.com/colorado-voter…
Unlike other states, Williams is keeping secret the address of voters which the law requires he make public. As a result of this violation of the provisions of the National Voter Registration Act, we can't provide the confirming info we have given voters in several other states.
Therefore, especially if you have a common name such as Jame Brown, you could get a “false positive” — that is, we can correctly confirm that some James Browns have been purged, but we can’t confirm that is you. #ColoradoPurgeList

Immigration & Customs Enforcement—more commonly known as ICE, is a law enforcement agency of the federal government of the U.S. tasked to enforce the immigration laws of the United States & to investigate criminal and terrorist activity of foreign nationals residing in the U.S.
ℹ️ICE has two primary components: Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). It is an agency under the jurisdiction of Homeland Security and was established in 2003 following the 9/11 tragedy.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Immi…
ICE was designed to keep us safe from terrorists—for instance, the terrorists who took over the planes on 9/11 were living undetected in the U.S. for over a year.

Pls read this thoroughly before commenting. The Trump administration has corrupted this agency to do horrific acts.

Big Picture TOC:

‘The whole mess of RU hacking, CA, the Trump & Leave Campaigns was not only a coup but an unprecedented shorting of the market through mass manipulation of the electorate w/ the aim of controlling not only geopolitics but the financial markets too’
💧Deluge2💧

Mueller’s RU probe will reach a “wild” level over the next couple of months, said Mark Warner

Court docs allegeTrump SoHo condominiums in the building were purchased using funds linked to a massive fraud case in the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan.
💧Deluge3💧

Mueller nabs E. Prince's phones, computer & is said to be cooperating.

What does the British gov’t know about 45 & RU? Quite a lot, actually!

For the UK the choice over whether to back Mueller & the rule of law or the thug Putin & TOC, the choice is a no brainer.

How many states do "they" have resolutions from in order to call a Constitutional Convention? There are several organizations pushing a call for a ConCon & they don't agree with each other. In fact the main one, Balanced Budget Amendment Task Force doesn't even agree with itself!
In 2016, the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) uncovered infighting amongst the many organizations. This resulted in Nick Dranias, a lawyer and former director of policy development at the Goldwater Institute, to be ousted from his job as Director of Compact for America.
Because he argued with the BBATF about the count.
