Politico, by James Hohmann

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/3/2014 2:16:04 PM

Democratic officials who will choose the location for the party’s 2016 convention have set dates for visits to the six potential host cities to evaluate their bids. Democratic National Committee CEO Amy Dacey will lead a delegation, including technical experts, to each of the sites. They will start in Birmingham, Alabama, on July 21-22. Then the group heads to Ohio for a four day swing, spending August 4-5 in Cleveland and August 6-7 in Columbus. They’ll travel to Brooklyn on August 11-12, Philadelphia on August 13-14 and finish in Phoenix on September 10-11. Republicans have already finished their site visits,

The GOP will have their nominee in place by February 2016, thus giving the Dems plenty of time to trash him before the election. Meanwhile, John McCain will make sure no republican utters a discouraging word towards Shrillary during her quest for The Throne.

The communist party just completed its convention in Chicago, so that site would seem the best fit for the democrats.

Candidate goes homeless to

SACRAMENTO, Calif.— The Republican candidate for California governor said Thursday he spent a week living as a homeless person in Fresno to highlight the disparity between the governor´s claim that the state is making an economic comeback and the reality faced by the working poor. Neel Kashkari, a millionaire and former Goldman Sachs banker who is far behind Gov. Jerry Brown in pre-election polls, released a short documentary about the six nights he spent sleeping in parking lots and on park benches, and wrote about his experience in an opinion piece published in the Wall Street Journal. Kashkari, 41, said

When asked at a press briefing on Thursday why her party´s message is "not resonating with the electorate," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told a room full of reporters “we need you to be messengers.” A reporter asked Pelosi: “So, you make this case about the skepticism that people have of this anti-government premise here. You talk about, you know, they’re riding this impeachment horse, and lawsuit horse, and all these things they are doing in the election.

When a handful of former NASA employees decided to get serious about retrieving moon photos from 50-year-old analog tapes, they got a lot of negative feedback. "We were told by professionals it would cost millions, but we did it anyway," said Keith Cowing, co-lead on the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project. At the end of March, the project celebrated processing the last of about 1,500 photos made by NASA´s lunar orbiters in the 1960s. The next phase involves preparing them for submission to the Planetary Data System, a public archive. Now housed in a converted McDonald´s restaurant on NASA property

Emory University Hospital in Atlanta said Thursday afternoon it planned to accept a patient who has Ebola "within the next several days," but did not say in a statement who the patient was or whether it was one of the American volunteers who has the disease. Two American volunteers stricken with the Ebola virus that is spreading in West Africa were said to have worsened overnight, as U.S. officials considered options to evacuate them out of West Africa.Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol were in “stable but grave” condition in Liberia on Thursday morning, according to a press release from

Monica Lewinsky, famous for her late-1990s affair with then-married and sitting U.S. president Bill Clinton, has a new job. She’ll be writing for Vanity Fair. A Vanity Fair spokesperson told Politico that as of now, there’s no set schedule or subject matter Lewinsky is tied to, “but she and her editor are on the lookout for relevant topics of interest.” Vanity Fair published a first-person account by Lewinsky in June, wherein she revisited the sex scandal she’ll be forever associated with. On Thursday, she wrote a piece for the magazine about the internet’s power to tell her side

Not over yet? Border crisis bill
in limbo as Republicans huddle

A dramatic scene was unfolding on Capitol Hill on Thursday as House Republican leaders left open the possibility that the chamber could still vote on a border crisis bill -- just moments after punting on the legislation and sending lawmakers home. Earlier in the afternoon, House leaders abandoned the bill after failing to round up enough votes for it. Lawmakers then began heading out for the five-week summer recess. But incoming House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., then unexpectedly took to the floor to say "additional votes are possible," indicating lawmakers should stay. Boos could be heard in the House

Wall Street tumbled deep into the red as traders digested a slew of corporate news and took money off the table with stocks not far from record highs. As of 1:30 p.m. ET, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 221 points, or 1.3%, to 16660, the S&P 500 tumbled 28.6 points, or 1.5%, to 1942 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 73.4 points, or 1.6%, to 4390. In a sign of the breadth of the selloff, every major sector was recently down by at least 1%. The biggest losers could be found in telecommunications, technology, energy and health care.

Boehner Tries to Resuscitate
Dying Border Bill

Posted By: JoniTx- 7/31/2014 3:53:57 PM     Post Reply
In the Speaker´s lobby just off the House floor, members of Congress were full of recriminations over how the border bill had just died -- until it sprang back to life. House leadership has announced a 3pm special conference meeting to discuss the issue and raised the possibility of additional votes before the House departs for summer recess. The change is an abrupt shift from a decision to pull the bill and leave without a vote on it at all. According to Republicans familiar with the matter, the decision prompted a sudden and fierce backlash against Speaker John Boehner from

House GOP pulls border bill

House Republicans pulled Speaker John A. Boehner’s slimmed-down legislation to address the brewing immigration crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border rather than see it defeated, amid a conservative revolt that the $659 million proposal did not address the core issues. Faced with certain defeat, Boehner (R-Ohio) pulled the legislation from consideration Thursday afternoon, according to guidance from leadership advisers. With more than 20 House conservatives opposed, Boehner did not have enough votes from his own Republican ranks because virtually all Democrats opposed the legislation. The resulting lack of action would end the congressional summer session in a familiar legislative failure, as

UPDATE: House Republicans have abandoned vote on border security bill in face of tea party opposition, the Associated Press reports. WASHINGTON — House Republicans moved toward a vote Thursday to address the immigration crisis on the border, after GOP leaders agreed to conservative demands for a separate vote aimed at blocking President Barack Obama from expanding deportation relief to millions. The surprise maneuver late Wednesday night appeared to be having the desired effect of locking down conservative lawmakers´ support for the $659 million bill to deal with the crisis involving tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors streaming into the U.S.

North Korean defectors and South Korean activists launched snack-filled balloons across the border into North Korea Wednesday. The balloons—containing cookies and Choco Pies, a popular chocolate snack–were launched from the border town of Paju in South Korea. The Choco Pies, distributed to workers at factories at the Kaesong Industrial Complex, a demilitarized zone, where both South and North Koreans work, were sold on the black market in North Korea and authorities in Pyongyang ordered the factory owners to stop handing them out.

A good friend of mine apologized to me today. You see, he voted for Barack Hussein Obama in the 2008 election and he lives in a so-called “swing state.” He told me that he had not voted for Obama in the 2012 election, but that he realized that by supporting him in 2008, he had help unleash a deadly virus onto the American scene. He simply said he was sorry. I think a good many Americans feel much the same as my good friend. They know that they were seduced by the very slick presentation that Barack Obama made in the

Israel unleashed its heaviest bombardment in its three-week-old campaign against Hamas in Gaza on Tuesday as the Obama administration battled the growing perception among Israelis that Secretary of State John F. Kerry is a hapless bumbler in search of a cosmetic truce. Diplomatic efforts remained stalled despite a death toll that Palestinian officials said rose above 1,200 on Tuesday. The shadowy leader of the Hamas military wing said his group will not cease fire until an economic embargo is ended and other demands are met. After his latest round of mediation failed to achieve a cease-fire, Mr. Kerry has been

President Obama demanded that Israel agree to a one-sided cease-fire during a heated phone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to a report aired on Israeli TV Tuesday. Both leaders quickly denounced the purported transcript of their private discussion as fake. But the TV channel that obtained it, state-run Channel 1, stood by its account. In one bitter exchange, Obama declared that Qatar and Turkey — Hamas’ biggest international supporters — would mediate with the terrorists on Israel’s behalf, according to the TV channel. “I trust Qatar and Turkey. Israel is not in the position that it can choose its mediators,” the president

Conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status had their applications denied by IRS bureaucrats who called them names like “crazies,” “rabid” and other words that can’t be printed in a family newspaper. The tax agency is supposed to be run by nonpartisan, career professionals, but the latest set of emails released by the House Ways and Means Committee suggest the agency is anything but. Until the scandal erupted last year, Lois G. Lerner was in charge of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt organizations. Congressional investigators have spent months sifting through her emails — the ones that didn’t “go missing” — to find out

First lady Michelle Obama embraced her family’s African roots in a speech today, telling a young audience that the ´blood of Africa´ runs through her veins as she urged changing traditional beliefs on the worth of educating women. Her husband had shied away from discussing his African heritage in his own remarks to the 500 Africans finishing a six-week Washington leadership fellowship on Monday, referencing his Kenyan father only once in the question-and-answer session. But Michelle Obama said as an African American woman, her discussion with the African youth was ´deeply personal´. ´The roots of my family tree are in

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura joined the “CBS This Morning” co-hosts Wednesday to discuss the details of his legal battle with a former U.S. sniper. On Tuesday a federal jury awarded Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his case against Kyle’s widow. The former governor told CBS: “I’m already damaged. I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore. That was the one place I felt safe. I can’t go there anymore. I’ll be looking over my shoulder now wondering who’s going to come after me next. And, so don’t think I come out of this unscathed. All I wanted to do was clear my name and it has nothing to do with a widow or anything like that.

Perhaps it says something about us that our most interesting presidential candidates swear they won´t run for president. This is true of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and it´s increasingly true of Mitt Romney. As regular readers of this column know, I´ve never been much of a Romney booster. I´ve also expressed skepticism about the notion he would run again. But let´s not let "a foolish consistency" cloud our judgment. There is reason to believe that a third try wouldn´t be an absurd venture. First, in the intervening years since 2012 — and on a range of issues, not the least of which is

Do not eat or drink in front of Muslims, and learn more about their religion. That’s the directive that has gone out to active duty military personnel at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a Department of Defense medical and graduate school in Bethesda, Md. The brigade commander sent an email to military personnel at the facility last month – just before the start of Ramadan – advising them to show respect to Muslim colleagues. “This is a period of great personal restraint and commitment in addition to renewed focus on worship,” Brigade Commander Col. Kevin Glasz wrote. “I’d like to

Fox News’s Geraldo Rivera sniped at conservative blogger Matt Drudge over his website The Drudge Report’s emphasis on news regarding the U.S.-Mexico border. “Shame on Drudge,” Geraldo tweeted Wednesday. “His authoritative website has gone hysterical on issue of immigrant children. 14 stories like ‘Could Ebola sneak across?’” Drudge has admittedly placed an emphasis on linking to stories concerning the border. “I’m more obsessed with what’s going on with the border these days,” he said in a recent interview. The “Could Ebola sneak across” link Rivera specifically referred to in his tweet directs Drudge readers to an article at the right-wing World Net Daily.

Karl Rove, former adviser to president George W.

Referring to Obama as the “cynic in chief,” Rove said on Fox News’s On the Record that Obama is “suggesting a constitutional crisis” in an effort to “fatten the accounts of Democratic fundraising groups.” White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said last week that Congressional Republicans may take the path to impeach Obama. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has denied that he would seek impeachment. GOP House Majority Leader
