        I am fully behind the election of Hillary Clinton. That being said I don’t want to take my eyes off of our amazing President and his wife for one millisecond. They are my inspiration and my fascination. Nothing I have ever seen compares to the consistant good these two people do and the integrity that they maintain. After Barack Obama leaves office I am still going to take my cues from his recommendations. I trust him completely because he’s earned it.

    Would Republicans accept a pro-choice VP candidate?
    07/11/16 08:40 AM
    By Steve Benen
    When putting together a list of possible running mates for Donald Trump, it’s not hard to rattle off the names of assorted governors and members of Congress. But the Washington Post threw the political world a curve-ball over the weekend, reporting that the presumptive Republican nominee is “slightly bored” with the usual suspects and is “increasingly intrigued by the idea of tapping retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn” for his ticket.

    And while this article came as something of a surprise, it’s easy to see why the GOP candidate would be enamored with the retired general. Remember, the one person in the world who most impresses Donald J. Trump is, of course, Donald J. Trump. Mike Flynn has a record of military service the presumptive nominee can’t match, but Flynn is also a political amateur with literally no experience in elected office, a prominent anti-Muslim voice, a fierce critic of President Obama, and someone who’s a little too cozy with Vladimir Putin.

    Conservatives Just Lost the War to Privatize the VA
    by Paul Glastris
    July 8, 2016

    ………………………………………..

    Second, the law empaneled an independent Commission on Care to study the VA and recommend sweeping reforms, with privatization very much on the agenda. Indeed, representatives from two Koch brothers-allied pro-privatization groups were given seats on the commission, as were several executives from major medical centers that stand to profit from outsourcing VA care. The fix, it seemed, was in.

    Neither the Choice Program’s implementation nor the Commission on Care’s deliberations has gotten much coverage in the mainstream media. But as regular Washington Monthly readers know, we’ve been watching both very closely indeed.

    Among other things, we reported that research commissioned by Congress and ratified by the Commission concluded that while the VA has major problems, such as severe shortages of some doctors, VA health care nevertheless performs as well or better than the private sector on nearly every metric of quality, including average wait times to see doctors.

    Meanwhile, the presidential candidates also took positions on the VA issue. Donald Trump’s campaign backed aggressive privatization. Hillary Clinton, by contrast, announced her opposition to privatization but support for expanding existing “purchased care” programs wherein the VA contracts with outside providers to alleviate care shortages but maintains tight oversight to guarantee information-sharing, care integration, and quality and cost controls.

    On Wednesday, the Commission released its final report. To the surprise of most observers, the commission rejected privatization as the solution. While detailing a host of serious failings with the VA, the report notes that “care delivered by VA is in many ways comparable or better in clinical quality to that generally available in the private sector.” It concludes that the new Choice Program was “flawed” in both its design and execution, adding that “the program has aggravated wait times and frustrated veterans, private-sector health care providers participating in networks, and V.H.A. alike.” Rather than wholesale outsourcing, the report recommends addressing issues of access by “standing up integrated veteran-centric, community-based delivery networks,” a plan roughly similar to the one Hillary Clinton had called for.

    • July 11, 2016 at 11:35 am

      Glad the Commission listened to the stakeholders! I’m extremely satisfied with the care I receive at the VA! Additionally, I’ve been referred to the Choice program with mixed results. When I’ve been authorized to outsource for treatment/testing due to extended wait times at the VA, I’ve found similar scheduling delays in the private sector. When I’ve been outsourced for specialties NOT AVAILABLE at the VA, I’ve received excellent, timely care! Outsourcing for unavailable specialties is not new; the benefit of receiving specialty care under the Choice program is that I can choose the doctor or facility (in my case, closest to my home) vice being required to go to a contracted facility in the city. For that, I am thankful.

    Good morning TOD, Nerdy and Chips! So thrilled with the Women’s Gymnastics Team for Rio! Finished watching the trials just before bedtime last night and I was so worried that Gabby may not make the team this year. She’s had a rough year and not the best trials. Sigh of relief:-) Fell in love with her in the last Olympics. And we also have a Latina on this year’s team!

    But that lead me to remember how thrilled we were in 2012 because she was the first AA gymnast to win Gold for the US. And then there are Serena and Venus on the tennis courts, and Misty leading the ballet world, and on and on. We have and are making huge progress. Finally this sport is starting to resemble our country. But I also think that progress –and the inevitable backlash to it–is part of what we are seeing in the Trump phenomenon. There are parts of this country where folks in the previous generation (and some in my generation) who have never known an AA or Latino in their lives. Hard to believe but true. And they do not know how to cope with the changes in this country in our generation. I am not condoning their racism or discomfort, but I do understand it because my parents were in that group. Not in the racism, but in the not knowing anyone that looks different from themselves. These women are challenging the old stereotypes in so many ways.

    In any event, I am glad PBO is home, his voice is desperately needed at this point in time to calm the waters. And I have no idea what this country is going to do when he is gone. I cannot see either Hillary or Trump stepping into the midst of the turmoil and doing anything but further roiling the waters. For Hillary’s part, her heart is in the right place but I don’t know that she’ll ever be listened to by any more than 48% of the country.

    Let’s hope that this week brings some healing.

      Firefox, change is hard and many will go to their graves refusing to face it. They’re hardened in their attitudes and nothing short of divine intervention is going to change their minds. These are the people we won’t ever reach, but there are young minds and open ones that are willing to look on the world and accept new realities. If we don’t react in anger, but move relentlessly forward, those minds and hearts will be with us. PBO never loses faith or hope because he always looks at the long horizon and the bigger picture. That’s allowed him to accomplish amazing things in the midst of virulent, relentless hatred and opposition. How can we give up when he never does?

        I have found that the older I get the more progressive (I have been a life-long liberal democrat), the more open-minded and accepting of all kinds of people and ideas. Usually, the more you know the better you become. We also need to get out beyond our own circle or group to really know what people who seem to be different are about and we will find that the “other” is no different from us in all of the ways that truly matter.

    Our president and FLOTUS are counting on us not to let them down this November, as we did in 2010 and 2014. If everything they worked for is to be preserved and carried forward, we must elect a Democratic president and Congress and that means pulling out all the stops to make it happen. It doesn’t matter if we don’t ‘love’ Hillary Clinton with the same intensity as PBO. We have to act with all the dedication and relentless effort that we did when PBO was running because he’s asking us to carry on where he, of necessity, leaves off. The Obamas, one and all, will go on to greater accomplishments and they won’t surrender their efforts to promote the causes that matter to them. But they need us right now to make sure all their efforts haven’t been in vain. I have had actual Democrats tell me that they won’t vote for Hillary because they ‘don’t like her’ or she isn’t as ‘inspiring’ PBO and I always tell them to ‘get over themselves’ and do their jobs as citizens. We aren’t being offered a choice between PBO and HRC. Our choice is HRC or Donald Trump. How could our task be clearer?

    An Opportunity for #NeverTrump Republicans to Save Face
    by D.R. Tucker
    July 10, 2016 3:30 PM

    Let’s face it: the #NeverTrump movement is an admission of embarrassment on the part of veteran Republicans, an acknowledgment that the Southern Strategy was suicidal, a concession that as a result of fifty years of playing to ignorant fears, the GOP base is largely comprised of people who think the term “animal husbandry” refers to bestiality. You can’t blame these veteran Republicans for wanting to wash their hands of their creation–and you can’t blame them for seeking alternate political routes:

    For some Massachusetts Republicans, the return of Bill Weld — the law-and-order Yankee who charmed his way into two terms as governor of a liberal state — is nothing short of face-saving.

    Finally, they have a reason to show up on Election Day.

    “I think for a lot of Republicans, especially in a state like Massachusetts, it gives us an option,” said Virginia Buckingham, a Republican who once worked as Weld’s chief of staff, and will vote for him this fall. “We were kind of in a difficult position facing voting for Donald Trump.”

    Weld’s reemergence as a vice presidential candidate on the Libertarian ticket with former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson has been viewed largely as another curiosity in a crazy election cycle in which, it seems, anything might happen…

    Trump backer says he’s running ‘as a racial healer’
    07/11/16 08:00 AM—UPDATED 07/11/16 08:49 AM
    By Steve Benen

    Donald Trump has been called all sorts of things over the course of his controversial presidential campaign, but yesterday was probably the first time anyone, anywhere, said he’s positioned to play the role of “racial healer.”

    CNN’s Jake Tapper interviewed Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R), a vice presidential contender, and the host noted that he’s heard from “a number of Latino-Americans, Muslim-Americans, Native-Americans, Jewish-Americans, African-Americans, all expressing concerns about some of the things Donald Trump has said.” The Republican governor insisted most Americans have the same security concerns, regardless of who wins the election.

    It led to this amazing exchange.

    TAPPER: Respectfully, governor, you didn’t answer my question. Do you think Donald Trump has campaigned as a racial healer?

    FALLIN: I think he is trying to campaign as a racial healer. I think that has been part of his message….

    In case you’re curious, the governor said this with a straight face.

    Clinton, Dems embrace a progressive vision with little resistance
    07/11/16 09:20 AM
    By Steve Benen

    Bernie Sanders won’t be the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate this year, but his impact on Democratic politics is hard to miss. The Washington Post reported yesterday on the party’s new national platform.
    If party platforms matter – and the jury is out on that – what happened this weekend in a sweltering Hilton conference room was remarkable. The Democratic Party shifted further to the left in one election than perhaps since 1972, embracing once-unthinkable stances on carbon pricing, police reform, abortion rights, the minimum wage and the war on drugs. It did so with very little ideological resistance and a lot of comity between the supporters of Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.

    “We have produced by far the most progressive platform that this party has seen in multiple generations,” said Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy (D), co-chairman of the platform committee.
    It’s worth pausing to appreciate the irony: it wasn’t long ago that Sanders’ campaign team demanded Malloy’s ouster, considering him too moderate and too supportive of Clinton to oversee the platform process fairly. And yet, there was the governor, announcing the progressives’ victory.

    GM, TOD! Been mostly off line the past week and a half — preparing for the 4th, entertaining the Grandson and God-daughter… Of course, :Life 101″ intervened… Broke right foot on July 3rd; in an air cast with orders for “no weight bearing” (sure…); vacation cancelled as legally, not supposed to drive… Like I said, “Life 101.” Glad the kids 15 & 17 are “Semper Gumby” — they have really pitched in to help around here, and in lieu of the vacation, we’ve carved time out for board games and movies. The kids wanted to attend a protest in Philly, however, I didn’t feel comfortable doing it in a wheelchair; compromise was organising a vigil here at our park. Good turnout with only a FB announcement 24 hour prior. Link to story below. Later today we’ll venture into the city for some sightseeing — have wheelchair, will travel…

      1. Equal protection under the law.
      2. Full and honest investigations of alleged police misconduct; and when warranted by the facts, VIGOROUS prosecutions of the same.
      3. An end to racist, bigoted, homophobic, misogynistic rhetoric by public officials and candidates.
      3. Reinstatement of the assault weapons ban.
      4. Expanded background checks

    Good morning everyone…didn’t sleep a wink last night and fell asleep sometime after 3:30am…..that’s the second time in a week this happened. Not good….

    Anyway, I’m up late so I have no idea if anyone posted this:

    http://www.politicususa.com/2016/07/11/nail-mitch-mcconnells-coffin-evan-bayh-run-senate-indiana.html

    Big buzz from CNN — Evan Bayh will be announcing Monday morning that he and his $10 million war chest will be making a run for the U.S. Senate. In other words, Mitch McConnell should enjoy his time as Majority Leader now because it could be short lived.

    Tom LoBianco at CNN reported the scoop in an article titled, “Evan Bayh mounting Senate return, could tip balance in November”:

    An announcement about Bayh’s candidacy for the Indiana Senate seat is expected later Monday morning, said a source familiar with the plans. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because they will not be released publicly until later Monday.
    Bayh is easily the most popular Democrat in the state. He was a Senator from 1999 to 2011, Governor from 1989 to 1997 and Secretary of State in 1986. Bayh has been a vigorous Clinton supporter for years, so perhaps that’s why he’s changed his mind about public life and decided to jump back in to help Hillary Clinton have a Senate that will support her agenda if she wins.

      I watched the Chief’s presser online and he was extremely open and honest about everything that has happened and what is happening right now in the department. As for the protection of POTUS, he plainly said it was too important and because of the fatigue of his officers, he didn’t want that on his conscience. It was a bit shocking that he was so truthful about it.

      I think this police chief has a lot of wisdom. The emotional and physical fatigue can lead to impulsive actions and overreactions. Also, I appreciate that he didn’t take the bait to tell PBO what to say!

      I think that the change in thinking about open carry and the gun culture has got to begin in Texas. I’m hoping that Mayor Rawlings can be a change agent, along with the police chief. Dallas gets a bad rap, but it is not the headquarters for this gun culture. The rural areas are where big changes in thinking and voting need to be made. If you look at a political map of Texas, Dallas, along with Austin and Houston, is blue. This is where change will begin, I think.

      Yesterday my son and daughter-in-law took their children on a Dallas City tour as part of a “staycation.” A lot of the tour was about the Kennedy assassination, which was good history for their children. There was no threat or danger to them on this tour. They were perfectly safe.

      For over a year, Donald Trump has used the national spotlight to attack Latinos, immigrants, and people of color. He repeatedly claimed Barack Obama’s birth certificate was fake, called Mexicans “rapists” and “criminals,” and said he would ban people from entering the U.S. based on their religion. But instead of standing up to Donald Trump and his extreme policies that target communities of color, Republicans are lining behind their Party’s nominee.

      We’ll continue to update this list as other Republicans stand with Donald Trump and his anti-immigrant policies.

        You can click on “Who’s With Trump” and see the people that support him and should be voted out of office if their terms are up…

      I’m sure it’s going to be all about privatizing and making money off of it but that article you posted earlier means there aren’t a whole lot of people on his side.

        I know…but really?

        • July 11, 2016 at 1:17 pm

          DT is such a loose cannon right now so who knows what he’s about to say or stand for at any given time. But one thing is certain: he’s a certified sociopath who is dangerous and out of touch with the real world. A REAL DUMB SH*T.
