      LH, I honestly don’t see what political advantage can be gained by allowing these tragedies to continue. Do Congressional Republicans think Zika will only strike pregnant women who are Democrats? Can they actually look at these consequences and turn away? I’m sorry to say that this level of inhumanity is beyond my understanding.

    • June 1, 2016 at 9:01 am

      But Paul Ryan and his Republicans buddies are playing politics with this,if it becomes a disaster they will blame POTUS for them doing nothing. How sad.

      Frieden said his “jaw dropped” when he realized how long it would take Congress to move on the issue. “Three months in an epidemic is an eternity,” he said.

      The cost for treating just one baby with microcephaly, the birth defect caused by Zika, is estimated to be about $10 million. More than 300 pregnant women in the U.S. and its territories are confirmed to have Zika. Democrats skewered their Republican colleagues Thursday for trying to be “fiscally responsible” during a public health emergency.

      “We can nickel and dime this if we want, but we do so at our own peril,” said Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.).

      Frieden said Congress doesn’t have time to bicker over funding right now.

      “Memorial Day weekend heralds the start of mosquito season,” he said. “We have a narrow window of opportunity to scale up Zika prevention measures, and that window is closing.”

    Donald Trump is splitting the white vote in ways we’ve never seen before

    By Scott Clement
    May 31 at 12:24 PM

    The potential for the 2016 election to widen America’s racial voting chasm even further is nothing new. But Washington Post-ABC News polls have also identified a related dynamic: White Americans are splintering along education and gender lines at rates not seen in at least three decades.

    These contours are well-known among political watchers; whites without four-year college degrees and men tend to be more Republican than women and college grads. But while these cleavages are seen across elections, it’s easy to forget that the gaps are typically not all that large — at least in comparison to this year.

    Take 2012. Mitt Romney won 61 percent of non-college whites compared with 56 percent of white college grads. The gap was nearly identical between white men and white women, 62 and 56 percent.

    Now, according to the latest Post-ABC poll released last week: Donald Trump received 65 percent support among white registered voters without a four-year college degree, compared with 46 percent among white college graduates, a 19-point gap. If the margin holds, it would easily be the largest education gap among whites in presidential elections since 1980.

    Forty dead tiger cubs have been found in a freezer at a Thai Buddhist temple accused of wildlife trafficking and animal abuse.

    Police and wildlife officials started an operation on Monday to remove all the living tigers at the Tiger Temple.

    Pictures from journalists at the scene posted to social media showed the 40 cubs lined up on the floor.

    The site in Kanchanaburi is a popular tourist attraction but has been closed to the public since the raid.

      GM Meta.

      Confused at when livestreaming occurs (Pacific time).

      JER posted a photo that says wsbt.com will livestream at 1:20 pm PDT; is PBO doing a separate interview with Gwen Ifill at 5 pm PDT?

      • June 1, 2016 at 11:59 am

        My understanding is he’s giving a speech at 12:25 Pacific and then he’s doing a Town Hall with PBS at 5pm Pacific.

          Great, thanks for the clarification!

          Glad to see that PBO is doing two events in Indiana (waving to Lovely Plains, though I don’t think he’s near Elkhart).

    Morning everyone….I watched the entire documentary about algorithms:) Excellent! Quite remarkable…

    Anyway…. then there’s this:)

    http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2016/06/trump-german-loan-deutsche-bank

    In his most recent financial disclosure statement, Donald Trump notes he has billions of dollars in assets. But the presumptive GOP nominee also has a tremendous load of debt that includes five loans each over $50 million. (The disclosure form, which presidential candidates must submit, does not compel candidates to reveal the specific amount of any loans that exceed $50 million, and Trump has chosen not to provide details.) Two of those megaloans are held by Deutsche Bank, which is based in Germany but has US subsidiaries. And this prompts a question that no other major American presidential candidate has had to face: What are the implications of the chief executive of the US government being in hock for $100 million (or more) to a foreign entity that has tried to evade laws aimed at curtailing risky financial shenanigans, that was recently caught manipulating markets around the world, and that attempts to influence the US government?

    Thanks, NW.
    Congrats to all the Gold, Silver & Bronze ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ winners since Tuesday, starting with this Fine Post.
    I knew that POTUS has been at Elkert, IN r at least 2X. Glad to learn from PBS News Hour that today’s POTUS Visit is this 5th.
    19%+ UE rate to 4.1% is a heck of an achievement. Since 20Jan09, Ever State has had a far better reduction UE. #ThanksObama!

    Now that the Trump shoes are beginning to drop…..I’m wondering if he will make it to the general election. He has too much baggage that is finally being brought out in the light. He has escaped so far because Republicans and the press were afraid of displeasing him. Hillary is not the least bit afraid of him, and she has a team that will search out everything about Trump. He will have no secrets within a month and his candidacy will be in desperate trouble. This situation is going to be fascinating to watch.

      He will Carolyn. GOP is nothing but tenacious. Their main Goal is to replace in their twisted bigoted minds the Obama Legacy, Person, Presidency, Pigmentation, etc. The Trump worship is just that…….Deep seeded Hatred of Pres Obama. Today only 8% of GOP Nationally approves of Pres Obama. That is a load of Hate, Sickness & Bigotry encased in 70% who actually registered their disapproval. 92% of Today’s GOP disapprove of POTUS. That is Twisted ODS.
      Trump is Not ideologically pure with most GOPers. He’s White, Loud, Dishonest, a Racist, a Sexist, King of Birtherism, etc. Their Version of a White Hope. The Hatred is beyond Deep. It has stagnated their ability to Reason.

    Bill Kristol’s candidate, David French, is married to Nancy French who has been Sarah Palin’s ghost writer for at least 7 years. She just recently left. Gee, what a coincidence.

    ….

    Well now we know why Nancy French is no longer working as Sarah and Bristol Palin’s ghostwriter. Her husband is being tapped to run against Donald Trump! Update!
