The Boss In Chief

Alyssa Mastromonaco: What I Learned From 10 Years Working With Barack Obama

After I became then-Illinois Senator Barack Obama’s adviser/ director of scheduling in late 2004, [chief of staff ] Pete Rouse became my spiritual guide and mentor. Pete had worked on Capitol Hill for about 40 years, many of those as chief of staff to Senate majority leader Tom Daschle, and was known as the “101st senator” and “mayor of Capitol Hill.” There is no one more thoughtful in the way he gives advice. He returns every e-mail, makes every connection, and does it all while being a wheeler and dealer. When we got to the Senate, Possum drafted one of his famous “strategic plans”—lengthy, painfully thorough memos about how to get something done.

****

****

In this case, it was the strategic plan for Senator Obama’s first year, and it could be summed up as “workhorse, not show horse.” It included lots of time with constituents and in Illinois, and less time with D.C. insiders and celebrities. Obama was quite fine with that. Every decision we made had to stand up to the workhorse vs. show horse test. Obama had a political action committee called the Hope Fund that was right down the street from the Hart Senate Office Building. The Hope Fund ran initiatives for getting young adults from diverse backgrounds into community organizing and politics; it also managed Obama’s political engagements

    There are a couple of important posts on the last thread that I’d like to bring over….I don’t know how important this one is, but it’s my idea that came to me after listening to Rev. Barber speak last night on a conference call re: Resisting this administration and our work ahead. I hope that whoever reads this, shares this and uses this idea with their members of Congress that are on the fence or always in lock step with the administration. Here is my idea..posted late last night for you east coasters:)….

    I know it’s late for some of you, but I thought that I would share my inspiration that came to me after I listened to Rev. Barber speak on the conference call tonight. I think that everyone reading this idea I had ,should share it, do it, pass it on to others if you think it would be impactful. I think it will.
    Rev. Barber said a lot this evening…I took notes and would be happy to share what he said…but the one thing that stuck with me is that we have to put a face on our protests and we have to make them morally right and strong. This can not be about Republicans and Democrats…left/right issue. This healthcare issue, and every other issue that we face with this corrupt and morally bankrupt administration, has to be framed from a morality standpoint. I agree with that argument. That said, the idea that I came up with is to go to the Dollar Store(s) and buy up baby dolls…all kinds of baby dolls…and swaddle them…and then safety pin how a child in your state will be impacted by the Repeal of Obamacare or the Installation of the deathcare that they have come up with….make it specific to your state and if you can find families that will be directly impacted by this…say a family from “X” will …

    I would go to place these dolls after the offices have closed for the night….no destruction of property ..just quite an impactful, moving scene when the office staff workers arrive in the morning….swaddled babies with stories to share…The more we do, the more effect it will have. This is why we’re here now….this is the reason we Resist. We are fighting for our families, our friends and our neighbors…some we know, some we will never know. We need to come together and take this stand and so many others…Well, who’s with me? Share this idea.

    http://www.npr.org/2017/03/20/520743555/former-law-student-gorsuch-told-class-women-manipulate-maternal-leave

    A former law student of Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, alleges that in a course she took from Gorsuch at the University of Colorado Law School last year, the judge told his class that employers, specifically law firms, should ask women seeking jobs about their plans for having children and implied that women manipulate companies starting in the interview stage to extract maternity benefits.

    snip/

    On April 19, 2016, Sisk wrote, Judge Gorsuch used a hypothetical from the prepared material for the class, in which a female law student applies for jobs at law firms because the student has a large debt to pay off. The student also intends to have a family with her husband.

    “He interrupted our class discussion to ask students how many of us knew women who used their companies for maternity benefits, who used their companies to — in order to have a baby and then leave right away,” Sisk said.

    She recalled that few students raised their hands and Gorsuch became animated. “He said, ‘Come on, guys. All of your hands should be up. Many women do this,'” Sisk said.

    Ron Bonjean, a spokesman for the Trump administration working on the Gorsuch nomination, noted that the judge had consistently gotten among the highest student ratings at the law school.

    No wonder DT likes him.

    SCOTUS NOMINEE NEIL GORSUCH SAID WOMEN “MANIPULATE” MATERNITY LEAVE

    Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch told law students that “many” female job seekers abuse maternity leave and must disclose plans to become pregnant… The federal judge told a University of Colorado Law School class last year that companies should “ask females about their family and pregnancy plans to protect the company” … Gorsuch’s remarks tread the line on what the Civil Rights Act prohibits. … He told our class that female lawyers get divorced at twice the rate of male lawyers … He also said that many female lawyers become pregnant, and questioned whether they should do so on their law firms’ dime.

I would love my niece to read it but my brother is a religious right conservative and anything PBO would be considered indoctrination. I’ll give it to her when she’s 18yrs old. My niece is very shy and does not like doing things outside her comfort zone which is fine for now but one day she will have to. I was like her too.

    Hard to believe there’s so much going on (on a Monday!) on Capitol Hill — don’t think Congress worked a single Monday when PBO was President, unless a looming deadline was approaching.

    “March 20: Astrological Commentaries from Bali. Dear Friends, I return now to the topic at hand (well I actually never left it!): “How to remain conscious–or even develop higher consciousness–in an unconscious world.” I began this discussion in my March 17th post, gave out an exercise in this respect on the 18th and now if you stick with me for a few more posts, I will outline the process. As ever, you are welcome to share these writings with others. In fact, I hope you do.

    As spiritual seekers we ask for Light, we strive for greater awareness, we aspire to selfless service and we strive ever to walk in Love.. But there is a price to pay for all of this—consciousness costs! And that price in terms of our personal evolution is loss: loss of desire, loss of attachment, loss of emotional illusions, even loss of the forms of our aspirations (as they emerge into the reality of Spiritual Presence). We created all of these desires, attachments, illusions, and aspirations and gave them form in terms of the nature of our personality. This is done through Scorpio and its celestial companion, the earthiest of the earth signs—Taurus. This interchange of signs may be stated as: “The desire for form and the forms that result from these desires!” What comes along in this celestial package is the energy of the Fourth Ray, aka “Harmony thru Conflict.”

    Why conflict? Because through decades of life on earth, we consolidate, anchor, and struggle to achieve what will eventually have to be released! This is done through the ministrations of Scorpio so that our Greater Life may manifest. What remains of all of this “death of form” is a refined core, a stable essence of truth, a synthesized nucleus known as Consciousness (also called Love, also called “the quality of the Soul”). The third of these Fourth Ray signs (each of the Seven Rays influences three of the astrological signs) is Sagittarius—higher knowledge. Indeed, in esoteric astrology Sagittarius is said to be the sign of the Path itself. The jewel of Wisdom that is the gift to us from walking the Path is in great measure the distillations–those pearls of awareness–that are born from the struggles between Taurus and the urge to amass form, and Scorpio, the urge for death and release of that which has been accumulated. This process is very tiring my Friends unless you KNOW that what you are doing has Purpose (and even then, you occasionally need a good rest and a piece of cake and a cup of coffee!).

    More to follow, with love and blessings to one and all, AO”

A revote will require an unprecedented Event in US History. It will be a bloodbath for #GOP Today. It will force Many to re-examine their Bigotry, Racist & Prejudicial subconscious…….a Man in The Mirror Moment, most Humans, especially folks in USA refuse to confront.

    Silver lining for the year from Hell: the secrets and lies, perpetrated upon the US by the republicans and their wealthy and influential paymasters, are being revealed. More and more people, of every background and race/ethnicity are realizing that they are less free than they thought and that they have been conned and used by these people all of their lives. I hope that when this is over, we will make law the things that have been custom, require more of a president than simply being native born and over 35, and put in stringent checks and balances. Transparency, for all on everything that affects their ability to fulfill their responsibilities as elected and appointed public officials, must be clearly spelled out and be enforceable and punishable. As heart-rending as this year of hell is, we needed to know the truth to make things better. The media also needs to be revamped so that they are truly the 4th estate and not gossipy, ratings whores. “Weeping may endure for a night, but come comes in the morning.”

    60 days in: approvals at 37% and still tanking, under investigation by the FBI, hearings, lawsuits, a disgraceful budget that may be dead on arrival, a health plan that has nothing to do with providing healthcare, no effective initiatives or executive actions/orders (thank God), alienating our closest allies and emboldening our enemies, multiple lawsuits and protesters in street and a well-organized and smart opposition. The one thing that he has managed to do, which is why he ran in the first place, is to enrich himself. To his voters: the bible warns about digging a ditch for another to fall in because you will fall into it yourself. Many voted to hurt those that they hate, while others voted to enrich themselves and to solidify their power. Neither group will wound up getting what they sold their souls to get.

      It’s what he’s doing when he travels- nothing for us… he’s playing on our dime – he’s wasting our money. All of them think they are entitled to whatever they want. This is why they’re so determined to screw American citizens out of every penny- they’re taking away OUR benefits, our healthcare- the stuff we pay for in order to have a decent life and then they act like they’re doing it “for us”. It’s crazy upside down world and what’s crazier is the knuckleheads who support this crazy.

    I am shocked!!!!!

    Every Cabinet agency has an embedded appointee, with the job title of senior White House adviser, who is situated near the secretary’s office, the newspaper reported. These appointees report to the Office of Cabinet Affairs instead of the Cabinet secretary.

    The appointees serve as observers and White House enforcers, the Post reports, ensuring that the agency’s leadership implements the president’s agenda.

    I almost came here to post that the Democratic committee members were surely the voices to be remembered from today’s FBI-CIA hearing …

    … and then I remembered that I had fast-forwarded my recording through all the Republican jerks who asked questions.

    [Sometimes I truly amuse myself!] 🙂 Go, Democrats!
