The reversal of Obama-era policies on marijuana could push Congress to provide more legal protections for recreational use, possibly as part of the forthcoming government-funding deal. But time is running short on that option.
Thursday’s vote by the Federal Communications Commission to roll back its net-neutrality rules comes nearly eleven months before 2018’s midterm elections. But Democratic politicians and progressive activists are already hell-bent on ensuring that when voters head to the polls next November, they’ll remember this decision from President Trump’s FCC.
When Democratic lawmakers first hatched a plan to use the obscure Congressional Review Act to repeal the Republican-led Federal Communications Commission’s December rollback of its net-neutrality rules, most observers expected the measure would simply force Republicans into taking an uncomfortable vote to defend an unpopular policy.
@RandPaul But he didn't seem particularly confident the vote will go his way. While "80-90 percent of the public" agree law enforcement should require a warrant to use citizens' information scooped up through foreign surveillance, "I think here it's about the opposite, unfortunately."
.@RandPaul just told me he'll filibuster today's vote to reauthorize Section 702 of FISA without reforms. "A lot will be determined by that first vote," he said, noting no provisions have been made for amendments should reformers lose the first vote.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
