SmartyPants: Trust Vindicated

I don’t mind being called an Obamabot that much. Just like the President decided to embrace the label “Obamacare” that was initially meant as a slam, I suspect history will vindicate that supporting this administration was the right call. What I’ve typically reacted to negatively is the idea that I blindly trust President Obama because the fact is – I have my eyes wide open and am watching a fascinating presidency unfold. Over time what has happened is that when I don’t see the whole picture yet, I’ve learned to slow down my reactions and wait until I get more information. I also remind myself of who this man is that we’ve elected twice and how he’s handled things in the past…..

The People’s View: Liberals Without A Conscience

You may think that by ‘liberals without a conscience,’ I am talking about people on the supposed Left who laughed at, dismissed, or shrugged off the children gasping for breath from the Syrian government’s chemical attacks, and you’d be right. You may think that I am using that term to refer to elected officials who pick and choose which humanitarian catastrophes we intervene in depending on who the president is, and you’d be right. You may think that by ‘liberals without a conscience,’ I’m digging at people on the Left that have suddenly found the anarchist Rand Paul and the statist Vladimir Putin to be their concurrent heroes, and you’d be right about that, too.

I have been coming to this realization for the last four years. I’m talking about people who stand in the way of progress, loud and proud, because they argue the progress isn’t enough, or refuse to recognize it as progress at all…..

Jim Stuart’s New Blog: We Have A Deal

On balance, most of us in the US and elsewhere have a binary view of conflict: if you win, I lose, and vice versa. And we are completely immersed in the consciousness of scarcity, resource conflict, and fear of the other. Clearly, Gandhi, Mandela and King operated from a different level of consciousness, where abundance, peacemaking, and trust were the qualities seen first, and were part of each leader’s basic operating system. Developmental psychologists call this level of consciousness integral, and tell us that less than 5% of the world has attained this consciousness level. Obama, I believe, is part of this small percentage of people who see things whole; who trust the complexity of events to reveal deep structures and patterns, not single point answers or finite solutions; who know with absolute conviction that truth is found not in resolving paradox, but living in its tensions; that flow and generative action requires letting go of ego; and that all people, at every developmental level have something important to say, even your adversaries and enemies, because the brain is not capable of 100% error….

The People’s View: How Putin “Outsmarted” Obama: By Completely Surrendering To All Of His Demands 

In certain parts of the world wide web – whether it be the “liberal” The Nation or any of the conservative outlets – the narrative is that Russian president Vladimir Putin “outsmarted” President Obama by coming up with a peaceful solution to Syria’s use of chemical weapons.

So let’s review, shall we? The United States gets a full disarmament of Syria – verifiably, completely, and and transparently. Russia, which until the G-20 refused to even talk about consequences for Syria is suddenly on board. Syria can’t act fast enough to show and turn over the chemical weapons that until last week it didn’t even admit it had. Chemical weapons? What chemic… here you go! (credit: Stephanie Miller) And to boot, the United States got Russia to agree to govern this agreement under the part of the Security Council documents that covers military action, even if Russia is still putting up a front against it…..

Michael Wines: E.P.A. Is Expected to Set Limits on Greenhouse Gas Emissions by New Power Plants

Following up on President Obama’s pledge in June to address climate change, the Environmental Protection Agency plans next week to propose the first-ever limits on greenhouse gas emissions from newly built power plants. While details of the E.P.A.’s proposal remain confidential, experts predict that it will include separate standards for carbon dioxide emissions from plants fired by natural gas and by coal. Plants using comparatively clean gas would be permitted to emit perhaps 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per megawatt-hour, a ceiling within easy reach using modern technologies.

Coal-fired plants, meanwhile, may be allowed to emit as many as 1,400 pounds per megawatt-hour. But coal is so heavily laden with carbon that meeting even that higher limit would require operators to scrub carbon dioxide from their emissions before they reach the smokestack, and then pump it into permanent storage underground.

In his June climate action plan, Mr. Obama ordered the E.P.A. to propose new greenhouse-gas rules covering existing plants by next June, and to issue final standards by June 2015.

Jim Kuhnhenn: Obama To Use Lehmann Anniversary To Cite Progress

President Barack Obama is marking the fifth anniversary of the Lehman Brothers collapse by trying to lay claim to an economic turnaround and warning Republicans against moves that he contends would risk a backslide. His message to the GOP: don’t oppose raising the nation’s debt limit, don’t threaten to close down the government in a budget fight, and don’t push to delay the health care law or starve it of federal money.

The economic emphasis, after weeks devoted to the Syrian crisis, begins coming into focus in a series of events kicked off by a Rose Garden speech Monday. The White House argues that a better capitalized and better regulated financial sector is extending more credit, fueling an economy now able to withstand headwinds such as spending cuts and tax increases.

“You can draw this straight line from the health of the financial system to the ways the financial system impacts the economy,” said Jason Furman, the chairman of Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers. Obama can point to a growing economy, rising housing prices, 35 straight months of hiring, a rebounding stock market and other signs of recovery. Five years after the federal government stepped in and infused banks with $245 billion in taxpayer money to avert a financial meltdown, the government has been paid back nearly in full.

Daily Beast: Oh Look, There Goes The Deficit

A funny thing happened on the way to the debt-ceiling battle: a big chunk of our annual budget quietly melted away. Daniel Gross on the good news you didn’t see coming.

…. we’ve long argued that we live in a Golden Age of Deficit Reduction. The August Treasury Monthly statement, released Thursday, and a Congressional Budget Office report released earlier this week, show just how far we’ve come in the space of a year.

In August, revenues were $185 billion, up 3.4 percent from $178.9 billion in August 2012. Spending was $333 billion, down 9.7 percent from $369 billion. The result: the deficit for the month of August was $147 billion, down 22 percent from $190 billion in August 2012.

Bryce Covert: California Poised To Raise Its Minimum Wage To $10 An Hour

After a bill to raise California’s minimum wage to $9 per hour as of July 2014 and then $10 by January 2016 was approved by both houses of the California state legislature on Thursday, it now heads to Gov. Jerry Brown’s (D) desk for signature. Brown voiced his support earlier in the week in a press release, saying, “This legislation is overdue and will help families that are struggling in this harsh economy.”

When voters are asked to vote on whether to raise the minimum wage, they almost always approve it with substantial majorities, as was the case in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, and Ohio in past years. Eighty percent of Americans support a national raise to $10.10 an hour, including two-thirds of Republicans.

    President Obama says a tumultuous month as commander in chief, when his policy toward Syria took a number of unexpected turns, may not have looked “smooth and disciplined and linear,” but it’s working. “I’m less concerned about style points. I’m much more concerned with getting the policy right,” Obama told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos …”

    “I don’t think that Mr. Putin has the same values that we do,” Obama said in response to Putin’s controversial op-ed.
    “I welcome him being involved. I welcome him saying, ‘I will take responsibility for pushing my client, the Assad regime, to deal with these chemical weapons,’” he said. “This is not the Cold War. This is not a contest between the United States and Russia.” …

    [PRESIDENT] OBAMA CALLS GIOP DEBT CEILING DEMANDS AN ASSAULT ON US ‘CONSTITUTIONAL STRUCTURE’

    …“What I haven’t been willing to negotiate, and I will not negotiate, is on the debt ceiling,” …

    “If we continue to set a precedent in which a president … is in a situation in which each time the United States is called upon to pay its bills, the other party can simply sit there and say, ‘Well, we’re not going to put — pay the bills unless you give us … what we want,’ that changes the constitutional structure of this government entirely,” Obama said. …

    So I went away for one day for our grandbaby’s first birthday party in Northern Virginia, thinking Saturday would surely be a slow news day. Came back to hear about the Syria agreement and read the truly brilliant, breathtaking posts by Zizi and LL. TOD is not only the place to get news about everything, but the insights offered hear are peerless. Thank you, UT, for giving us so much to start the day. I love that quote from the ABC interview with the president about his not being concerned about style points. It underscores what Jim Stuart said about people who see things from a different level of consciousness. From the president’s perspective great strides were made in Syria, at the UN and in the Israeli/Palestine conflict. As an added bonus, PBO managed to also reveal the rabid Republicans in Congress for the unthinking,hate-filled beasts they are. What happened wasn’t linear, which is how most people think. So those who can’t see the whole–what I’ve always called “bark people”—think it was all a jumble and PBO fumbled the ball. The joke, of course, is on them and the president has just made it clear that he could care less what they think.

    As an aside, there’s is nothing like seeing a one year get the first taste of cake icing. With icing smeared all over her face, hair, arms and hands, she was in heaven, shoving gobs the the stuff in her mouth. It’s the right of passage for every one year old and it’s worth the sugar highs that come after it. It was a priceless, adorable, wonderful moment.

Face smeared with dip. Amazing she didn’t upend the container on her head. It was a glorious Spring day – I got my exercise following her as she ran after every bird in the park.

    Obama’s Thoughtful Diplomatic Triumph on Syria Leaves His Critics Speechless

    Jason Easley – September 14, 2013.

    Politicus USA

    President Obama’s critics on both the left and right were silenced today, as his thoughtful approach to Syria has led to a breakthrough diplomatic agreement on chemical weapons.

    Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov have reached an agreement for the destruction of all of Syria’s chemical weapons. Syria’s failure to comply will not result in unilateral U.S. military action, but UN enforced sanctions. This is a complicated framework that expects Syria to submit a detailed list of their chemical weapons within a week, UN inspectors be allowed to complete their work/the destruction of Syria’s production and mixing/filling equipment in November, and it calls for all Syria’s chemical weapons materials and equipment to be destroyed or removed by early 2014.

    This is not the sort of agreement that comes together quickly. It is a complicated and detailed agreement that looks to have been in the works for a while. The structure of this agreement verifies the Obama’s administration’s claim that they have been working on this with the Russians for months, and it was first mentioned a year ago.

    One the day of his inauguration, a group of elected officials gathered to plot against him. To sacrifice this country so the President will fail….I was looking at the LONG list of things the media have written out as pure luck for this President. Isn’t it amazing that every couple of months, they tell us the sky is falling, that this is the one that will fail. this is the embarrassment but time and time again, with a 100% success rating, everything single thing this President has done has succeeded. They wont give him credit, no worries. All his success are a demonstration of divine intervention at work because no human alive can with stand the vile things that has been said and done to this president…and still stand tall and strong! makes me so happy Thank you God!

    So, before signing in I followed the Jim Kuhnhenn link, and made myself read to the end of the first page. I didn’t like his tone so I stopped there. Did he get to the point where he realistically mentioned the living obstacles in the president’s path over the last 5 years, and OBJECTIVeLY (i.e.with a well-earned positive spin) outlined the President’s progress notwithstanding, or did he continue with his subtle criticism that IMO actually began in his 2nd paragraph …..

    “Trying to lay claim to an economic turnaround, Obama acknowledged that despite progress, middle and low-income Americans have not benefited as much as the top 1 percent in the country.”

    and continued through to the last paragraph on the first page, which is when I’d had enough?

    “This glass-half-empty-glass-half-full state of the economy has produced competing story lines about the role Obama’s administration has played in getting the country to this point. Did Obama’s approach validate the philosophy of spending your way out of crisis or did some of his policies actually slow the recovery?”

    So, did the tone get better on page 2?

    Good Morning my Chips and TOD Family. Thank to our UT for another beautiful R&S. The beauty of this TOD family is the fact that Chips foundational structure was built from the beginning on firmness of keeping our minds open to newness but done with great respect for this president. If the MSM could build a foundational structure like this, their audience would be full and overflowing with open minds, intellectual participation, and respect for the brilliant deeds of one of the greatest minds who have graced the Oval Office. Thus our nation will rise on wings of eagles sunrise and sunset each day of our lives.

    However, I will move on to what we do have here in our beautiful space that Chips has provided for each of us. We will not allow our minds to be betrayed with falsehoods about our president. You just saw your president. Now what are you thinking? Right. We are so blessed. We heard the truths from his mouth. Then #TrustPOB as Bobfr reminds us daily.

    I refuse to allow the grace of God to be wasted each day of my life on the smallness of thinking about this president by others.. I refuse to squander precious space and time here where Chips has provided me the opportunity to learn from our president and spread goodness from his message to me daily and to all of us. I will refuse to have the MSM load my precious mind up daily with their often offensive speech about our president.
    I refuse to not believe that I am not of a sound mind that is constantly filled with great hope. Because of the very actions of President Barack Obama, I will walk in hope, speak with hope, and do things with hope. I will continue to have the audacity to hope whenever I want to.

    I will always be steady in my walk on this journey with POB to be full of faith, good thoughts, wellness in my core, always being compassionate toward others, and guided by my quiet moments to be connected to a higher power than myself. Thus, I will constantly release the energy of love, leadership, faithfulness to this community, and respect for our president. This support system here that Chips has built deserves my wholeness of responsibility to share with joyfulness, speak with truthfulness, and live with faith strapped to my very being.

    Program your minds for victory in your actions TOD family, secure your words with boldness within your space TOD family, and always place your thoughts of how you will help this president move our middle class and people all over the world into a better place. That is the core of the beautiful man that we elected twice as our President of the United States, and we will not leave him standing alone for one minute. We are the people who move the levers of kindness, goodness, truthfulness, and compassion in this nation to a whole new level when we made then Senator Barack H. Obama, President Barack H. Obama, our 44th brilliant president.

    Everyone, please have a beautiful Sunday and always try to put something of value to you and the world into your space. Be gentle on yourself, and kind within your space. (((( Love my TOD family so much.))))HZ
