USA Today: Obama’s day: A new budget director, housing secretary

President Obama pulls a Cabinet switch on Friday.

The president will nominate Shaun Donovan, now the secretary of Housing and Urban Development, to be the new director of the Office of Management and Budget.

To replace Donovan as HUD secretary, Obama will nominate San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro.

Obama will make the announcements on Friday afternoon, after he returns to the White House from Chicago. The president spent Thursday night in the Windy City after headlining a pair of Democratic fundraisers.

Sun Times: Obama in Chicago: “I need a Democratic Senate” (Transcript)

At the first of two fundraisers in Chicago on Thursday, President Barack Obama told donors “I need a Democratic Senate” or else his agenda for the last two terms of his term – including immigration reform – will not succeed. Obama said he is worried about people not voting in November:

…… I need a Congress that works. And that means I need a Democratic Senate. And it would be helpful to have a Democratic House.  Now, you all know this so I’m preaching to the choir. But here’s the challenge we have: Democrats are not perfect and it turns out one of our great imperfections is we have a congenital tendency not to vote in midterm elections.

I don’t know what it is. Presidential elections, we’re all in. In 2008, you all went crazy; 2012, you still went crazy. High turnout, we’re motivated, donors are involved, people are active, folks are knocking on doors, people making phone calls.  And then the midterm comes and we fall asleep.

That cannot happen in this election because the stakes are too high. And I say this mindful that in every election somebody says how high the stakes are. But think about what’s at stake right now. Think about it.  If we do not hang on to the Senate and make gains in the House we may not get immigration reform done, which means we could have another three, four years in which we’re being deprived of talent we’re training here in the United States – they go back home and start businesses someplace else. There are Michael Polskys right now in universities that have the possibility of creating businesses here but may end up going back home because we have a broken immigration system. That’s what’s at stake.

NJ.com: Obamacare enrollment drives down NJ’s uninsurance rate by 38 percent

The first look at the Affordable Care Act’s impact on New Jersey reveals the percentage of uninsured people is on track to reach its lowest level in nearly a quarter of a century, according to a new report released Thursday by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

The proportion of uninsured adults decreased 38 percent from September to early March, according to the foundation. That decline is likely to accelerate, knowing that many people waited until the last minute to beat the March 30 enrollment deadline.

“These findings suggest that uninsurance in New Jersey is at its lowest level since 1990,” according to the report produced by the foundation and the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy.

The survey results suggest that many concerns about the law — from Gov. Chris Christie hand-off approach to its implementation, to the Obama administration’s troubled launch of the HealthCare.Gov website — did not create insurmountable roadblocks.

Eugene Robinson: The GOP is still swallowing the tea

What’s happening in the Republican primaries is less a defeat for the tea party than a surrender by the GOP establishment, which is winning key races by accepting the tea party’s radical anti-government philosophy.

Anyone who hopes the party has finally come to its senses will be disappointed. Republicans have pragmatically decided not to concede Senate elections by nominating eccentrics and crackpots. But in persuading the party’s activist base to come along, establishment leaders have pledged fealty to eccentric, crackpot ideas.

More here

Similarly, from Charles Pierce:

This is a mutually co-opting dynamic that is becoming smoother. The “establishment” adopts uniformly extremist policies that would have been unthinkable for a national Republican party two decades ago. The “Tea Party wing” contents itself in the knowledge that the party declines any more to nominate raving loons for election to the national legislature. My guess is that this modus vivendi will provide some empty conflict entertainment over the next two election cycles, but it all will be moon pigeons for the punditocracy to marvel at. The radical conservative philosophy has captured the infrastructure of the Republican party, root and branch, local and national. It’s just wearing shoes again now.

Steve Benen: Why Guantanamo remains open

President Obama has received a fair amount of criticism from the left about the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay. The president vowed to close the prison, but after five years in office, it remains open.

That’s not for lack of effort. Obama has tried, repeatedly, to pursue the policy that used to enjoy bipartisan support, but Congress – including members of both parties – have placed inflexible restrictions on the administration, preventing progress. In other words, the president hasn’t closed the prison because lawmakers simply won’t let him.

Every time there’s reason to think progress is possible, Congress does what it always does…..

… There’s certainly nothing wrong with being frustrated by the detention facility remaining open, but if you’re blaming the White House, you’re pointing the finger at the wrong end of Pennsylvania Avenue.

Bloomberg: Netanyahu Says Obama Got Syria Right

Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has some uncharacteristically positive words for one of U.S. President Barack Obama’s most controversial foreign policy initiatives: the deal struck last year to remove chemical weapons from Syria.

I met Netanyahu last Friday afternoon in his bunkerlike office in Jerusalem. During the course of our discussion, I asked him about the famous “red line” crisis – Obama’s last-minute decision to abort a missile strike and instead negotiate the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile – that colors so much of foreign-policy commentary today.

Netanyahu issued what was for him a full-throated endorsement of an Obama initiative, calling it “the one ray of light in a very dark region.”

Greg Sargent: On immigration, the GOP is Steve King’s party

 It’s not often that GOP Rep. Steve King says anything usefully revelatory on immigration reform. Today, however, he went on to the House floor and, in just over a minute, unmasked the truth about the Republican Party’s position on immigration — a position that House Republican leaders have tried to obscure for months.

King cited Chuck Schumer’s recent claim that the Congressman from Iowa is an “extreme outlier” on the issue. King then helpfullly pointed out that in fact, his position is indistinguishable from the Republican Party position, while deriding the Democratic position as akin to socialism…

Fernando Espuelas: Boehner lies to Hispanics again

Yesterday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) published an orotund statement predicated on a lie, betting that Hispanic Americans are incapable of distinguishing between fact and fiction.

According to Boehner, President Obama’s recent designation of the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks in New Mexico as a national monument — lands with deep historical and archeological significance to Hispanics and Native Americans — demonstrated “the president’s fondness for unilateral action [that] has created widespread doubt among the American people that he and his administration can be counted on to enforce any law he signs, particularly when it comes to securing our nation’s borders and reforming our immigration system.”

Now, to be fair, the Boehner-led House is so chaotic that it resembles more a gang of yammering ruffians than a serious legislative body. So there is a possibility, even a small chance, that Boehner doesn’t even know what is said in his name through his office’s communications office.

Even so, what is the best case scenario? Incompetence instead of deception? Rogue staff? After a litany of objectively dubious statements about immigration reform in the past, it’s hard to give Boehner the benefit of the doubt.

Harold Meyerson: The boost that comes from raising the minimum wage

 The standard argument — really, the only argument — against raising the minimum wage is that it will lead to job loss. The argument is beloved by die-hard opponents of raising the wage because it provides them with a veneer, however flimsy, of concern about the welfare of the working poor.

 Economic studies have repeatedly shown that argument to be spurious. Now the latest survey of 350,000 small businesses from Paychex, a payroll provider company, and IHS, a business analysis firm, provides strong indications that the exact opposite may be true.

 In April, the Paychex/IHS survey, which looks at employment in small businesses, found that the state with the highest percentage of annual job growth was Washington — the state with the highest minimum wage in the nation, $9.32 an hour. The metropolitan area with the highest percentage of annual job growth was San Francisco — the city with the highest minimum wage in the nation, at $10.74.

 This suggests that the relationship between a high minimum wage and job creation needn’t be inverse. If anything, it suggests that relationship is direct.

Michael Tomasky: The Roots of the GOP’s Race Problem

Thursday is the 50th anniversary of the Great Society and the civil rights push. But if conservative hero Barry Goldwater had had his way, government would have stayed out of it.

…. I like the way today’s conservatives rush to point out, as they will in this comment thread, that most of the opposition to the civil rights bill was Democratic, as I noted above. There’s no denying that. But the more relevant point for today is this: Over the next few years, those people left the Democratic Party. They knew there was no place for them there.

In today’s GOP, however, the successors to the Richard Russells and Harry Byrds have been welcomed with open arms. And Barry Goldwater is not merely one guy among many guys they kind of like from the past. He is conservatism’s great hero! And 1964 is thought of as a shining moment in their movement’s history! And here we are, 50 years later, with the Republican Party looking as if it just might nominate for president a guy (Rand Paul) who once admitted that he’d have opposed the Civil Rights Act and basically was still against it (and Paul is one of the better Republicans on race!). Half a century, and society has changed for the better in amazing ways. But one of our two parties is still dedicated to fighting it.

    http://www.mediaite.com/online/donald-sterling-reportedly-surrenders-control-of-clippers-to-wife-who-will-then-sell/

    Sources tell TMZ that Donald Sterling has ceded control of the Los Angeles Clippers to his “estranged” wife, Shelly Sterling, so she can negotiate the sale of the team on her terms (and presumably get the most money for the sale).

    According to them, Sterling, whose recent gaffes in an Anderson Cooper interview collided with a new NBA report alleging that he attempted to cover up the infamous recording with his mistress, “saw the handwriting on the wall.” By giving control of the team to his wife, the NBA would be unable to force an involuntary sale of the Clippers franchise, as Commissioner Adam Silver had threatened to do.

    “We’re told Shelly realizes the NBA wants the team sold, but she has significantly more leverage and credibility with the league than Donald,” they wrote. “Her end game is simple — she won’t object to the sale, but SHE wants to call the shots.”
    ////

    From TMZ and they have Gotten this Sterling story correct.

    • 79 GGail
      May 23, 2014 at 11:55 am

      This is all incorrect.

      Shelly’s signature is not on the contract, therefore Donald is the only Owner. He cannot cede control over to her.

    I know there has been controversy about ta-Nehisi Coates, but the article on Reparations that Chips posted above is riveting. Even if you think you know a lot about the ugly history of the USA you will probably still learn more.

    Larry Wilmore who will be replacing Steven Colbert next year covered some of this ground beautifully when he explained to He Who Will No Longer Be Named that the housing sub-prime crisis of 2008 was a black tragedy. Larry made his points humorously, but he did make his points.

    Again on HWWNLBN, it is entirely fitting and wonderful that Steven moves to a nationwide non-cable Major network next year after winning the Emmy and the Nameless One is still where he was 10 years ago.

    http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/gregg-jarrett-rehab-minnesota-airport-arrest

    The police report, obtained by the Minneapolis Star Tribune, laid out the details of Jarrett’s arrest. A grill employee told police Jarrett appeared “very intoxicated” after she served him one drink, while a man who was speaking with Jarrett told officers that the newsman had taken some medication.

    Jarrett did not tell police that he had taken any medication recently, according to the report, but he did admit that he had been drinking vodka since 9 a.m. The report described Jarrett as “very unsteady” and as having difficulty answering any questions about either his drinking or medication.

    An officer later found three Gabapentin pills in Jarrett’s pockets, according to the report. Gabapentin is a painkiller that can cause drowsiness and confusion and does not mix well with alcohol. An officer’s search of Jarrett’s bag also turned up documentation that the newsman had just been released from an alcohol and chemical dependency treatment facility.

    Good Morning/Afternoon my Chips and TOD family. This is a beautiful R&S, Chips. This is one of my favorites of our POTUS and FLOTUS. There is so much love and beautiful spirits of goodness there. I love the music in this video. It always brings the water-works gushing. Just to see them there and to think of the beautiful people enjoying this president, just makes it so beautiful. Thanks so much for starting this Friday off with this love packed and truth packed news, Chips.

    I have been in bed for a while, but not to worry, I will continue to get stronger because we have much work to get done in the coming months. Serious work. However, we will do what it takes, and we will move with urgency to help our beloved president in these last two years of his presidency. We really must do our best.

    Chips, lots of loving hugs to you, my special angel. Lots of loving hugs to my Danny. And Chips, thanks so much for this great haven of sweetness, support for POB, deep respect for him and his administration, and all of the brilliant minds contributing to it. Thank you, thank you, my dear beautiful angel.

    I would love to have that delicious looking breakfast that our fine president is having. When I saw it, I knew that I was feeling better. So tempted to slip out and try to get some bacon. But my brother will be checking in on me in another hour, so I need to be able to keep the facts clear and truthful. He has that way of knowing if I cheating on the foods. Oh, but that bacon looks so good. Lord have mercy. I know, maybe I am beginning to sound like our friend Mark K. Oh, no. Oh, no.

    Be good to your spaces and fill them up with so much love, grace, peacefulness, lovely thoughts, tough moves, and joyful attitudes. Life is so precious in these days and times. Enjoy your space.
