    Democrats Will Halt Senate Business Over Health Bill
    June 19, 2017

    Democrats will grind Senate business to a halt in a protest against Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare..

    Beginning Monday night, Democrats will start objecting to all unanimous consent requests in the Senate, according to a Democratic aide. They plan to control the floor of the chamber Monday night and try to force the House-passed health care bill to committee in a bid to further delay it.

    Without the votes to block Obamacare repeal, Democrats are turning to procedural moves they believe will underscore their most powerful argument: Republicans are hiding their repeal plan from the public and using Senate procedures to keep it a secret.

    • jziglar

      Right. Democrats actually have a number of tools they can use to constantly delay and screw up Trumpcare. Votorama, challenging every provision with the Byrd rule. Plenty of procedural options. Also because they’re trying to use reconciliation so they can’t vote on a bill until a CBO score to come out. And that will take weeks.

  • MsKitty

    Fun fact: a tween Naomi Campbell appears in the I’ll Tumble 4 Ya video.

    Trump campaign chief met with suspected Russian spy last August to discuss DNC hacks
    June 19 at 11:44 AM

    In August, as tension mounted over Russia’s role in the U.S. presidential race, Donald Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, sat down to dinner with a business associate from Ukraine who once served in the Russian army.

    Konstantin Kilimnik, who learned English at a military school that some experts consider a training ground for Russian spies, had helped run the Ukraine office for Manafort’s international political consulting practice for 10 years.

    At the Grand Havana Room, one of New York City’s most exclusive cigar bars, the longtime acquaintances “talked about bills unpaid by our clients, about [the] overall situation in Ukraine . . . and about the current news,” including the presidential campaign, according to a statement provided by Kilimnik, offering his most detailed account of his interactions with the former Trump adviser.

    Good afternoon POU,

    Where’s the thinkpiece on our traumatized children? Saturday I took daughter to Juneteenth and after being greeted at the gate by our overseers/officers/overseers, daughter asked is she safe around the police? All I could do was squeeze her hands and say she is today. I got her.
    Sunday, she played and swam while I barbecued. Not a care in the world…as it should be.

    Afternoon Fam!

    I hope everyone is engaging in self-care. LONG rant ahead!

    My niece, who is 19, bought a car last year with her own money.She bought it from a dealer in Indiana and registered it here in Illinois. Fast forward to this year. She goes to renew her vehicle sticker, and is told the title has the wrong VIN number. The title had an incorrect VIN number and the bill of sale the correct one (the VIN numbers ARE VERY close). Instead of informing her in May 2016 that there were inconsistencies in the two numbers and telling her to resolve it, the Secretary of State’s (SOS) office registers the car under the incorrect number.

    Her older sister (they are 12 years apart) went up there with her after the fourth trip. Her older sister had her ‘I wish a mofo would’ face on and was able to get some instruction so the problem could be resolved. My niece went back to the dealer, received the original title with the correct VIN number, and a copy of the title issued to her with the incorrect number. Stay with me now.

    She went back to the SOS office with the corrected documents. She was told that she needed to come back with the original title with the incorrect VIN number. She can’t do that because the car is owned by someone else. The dealer reissued an original title to that driver as well.

    So, this is where I enter. I ain’t ABOUT to fuck with some employees who ain’t empowered to make shit happen, and/or who give less than a damn and are collecting a check. I call down to Springfield to speak with the employees in THAT office.

    The next available agent was a black woman who would not listen and was going to talk all over me. Then she hung up. Bitch betta ask somebody – I called back.

    When I called back, I was connected to a wonderful representative. I started out by telling him that I received extremely poor service and needed to speak with a supervisor. He listened, apologized for the imbecile’s behavior, and proceeded to help me. He is everything you hope a person working with the public would be – listens well, analytical, a problem solver.

    Long story short – he and his supervisor will call my niece this afternoon to get this issue resolved. I asked for his name, so I could send a letter of appreciation, which I did. The first paragraph explained my niece’s problem, the described the actions of that skank heffa (she was extremely fortunate I did not have her name) and the driver’s facility here in Chicago.

    The rest of the email was effusive with praise for the male representative, and I asked them to pass it to his supervisor and forward it up the chain of command.

    Don’t fuck with me – I KNOW how to write a letter to your supervisor that will have you fucked up. [Rant off].

    • BoomerGal

      I don’t know about your experiences but it’s mighty strange that I get the best results from male reps. Maybe we catch these women on the wrong day, if you know what I mean, or something. But that just seems to be how it always goes for me. Oh and btw, so glad it finally worked out for your niece.

      • sagittarius

    The harsh feelings in our politics arise from a long process — the steady destruction of the norms of partisan competition that began more than a quarter-century ago. Well before President Trump took political invective to a new level, Newt Gingrich was pushing his side to extreme forms of aggressiveness. Journalist John M. Barry cited an emblematic 1978 speech Gingrich gave to a group of College Republicans in which he warned them off “Boy Scout words, which would be great around the campfire, but are lousy in politics.”

    “You’re fighting a war,” the future House speaker said. “It is a war for power. . . . Don’t try to educate them. That is not your job. . . . What’s the primary purpose of a political leader? . . . To build a majority.

    • nellcote

      being a racist asshole used to be a point of pride for gingrich.

    • jziglar

      Gingrich was so nasty that he even stabbed George HW Bush in the back when a budget agreement was reached which included tax increases. Gingrich told the Bush WH and Bob Dole that he was on board, and at the last minute he railed against it in the press and called it a betrayal. He did it to gain more power and influence in the house. Newt played the ultimate role in turning politics into some kind of blood sport.

    Over 100 CEOs slam Trump’s air traffic control plan
    06/19/17 11:59 AM EDT

    Business leaders are coming out in fierce opposition to President Trump’s controversial proposal to privatize air traffic control.

    In a letter to House and Senate leaders on Monday, over 100 CEOs called for targeted improvements to the nation’s air navigation system as opposed to separating it from the federal government.

    The group, which includes a wide range of companies, such as Hewlett-Packard and Life Time Fitness, said their community depends on air traffic control to keep their businesses running.

    A couple of weeks ago, at Trump Tower, on the same spot where Donald Trump announced his Presidential bid, Eric Danziger, the C.E.O. of Trump Hotels, formally launched a new line of three-star hotels, called American Idea, which will cater to lower-income, rural areas of the country. It was the most blatant instance yet of the Trump family’s profiting from its political power—in this case, by shifting from its long-standing focus on luxury markets in order to make money from the very demographic that put Trump in the White House. Within the hotel industry, the event raised eyebrows for another reason: it was unbelievably haphazard.

    Danziger, though a veteran of the industry, had almost nothing to show his audience. There was no Web site or marketing material, and the logo was just the brand name and a crudely drawn picture of a light bulb. (A company representative told me that she wasn’t sure if it was the final logo or a work in progress.)

    “It is incredibly rushed,” Jan deRoos, a professor at Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration, told me. “This feels like someone woke up on a Saturday and had to roll something out in ten days.”

    • Town

      All they’re going to do is buy old Ramadas, Best Westerns & Knights Inn, redecorate them in red/white/blue or country/western decor, make the employees wear flag inspired uniforms and rename them “American Idea.” That’s it.

      • Miranda

        And Ma and Pa Kettle will hustle up their $150 a night stay in a $39 dollar a night remade Red Roof Inn for their trip to Branson, MO. and take pics in front of Trump’s hotel!

          Yup and he knows it! Picture this, you pull up to the American Idea hotel in Mebane, NC…

          You enter the lobby, which is styled in country western decor and you’re greeted by Sheena, a bottled blonde guest services desk clerk in a red and white striped button down shirt, blue skirt (all women just wear skirts…no exceptions) and cowboy boots. She gives you your key and suggests you take a look around the gift shop, which is filled with MAGA hats, shirts & souvenirs.

          You enter your room, which is decorated in shades of red, white and blue and turn on the TV. There on the TV guide you’ll find TLC, where you can watch “Countin’ On” and HGTV, where you can watch “Fixer Upper” and “We Bought The Farm.” There’s no pesky BET, Lifetime or Univision…no, no! None of that MSNBC or CNN! But you’ll find plenty of Fox News and CMT for your viewing pleasure!

          For your convenience, the mini bar will be stacked with Cheetos and Trump Water. In the premier American Idea hotels, room service will be served between 12pm and 12am, and Trump Steaks are always on the menu.

          American Idea hotels are committed to diversity and want you to know they are employing black Americans and helping them be great again by employing them as bellhops, housekeeping and cooking your delicious Trump Waffles & pouring your Trump Orange Juice for your continental breakfast.

          They’re so stupid, they thought wearing Ivanka Trump meant the same as wearing Gucci. They will price the hotels just enough so the rubes THINK they’re spending “da big bucks.”

        Not necessarily. A lot of those voters could be Osoff voters. He did come very close to winning 50% and avoiding the runoff, and could very well win tomorrow.

          I don’t trust anything voters, especially white voters, have to say in these polls. Sorry to be offensive, but I just don’t. I just remember how all the white women told the pollsters in VA that Ken Cuccinelli was scary for his transvaginal probes but they ran right to those polls and pulled the lever for him, just like all those white women wore their Susan B Anthony pantsuits straight to the polls and voted for Trump.

    Seattle police release audio of fatal shooting of pregnant mother

    Update: The Seattle Police Department released an audio file of the shooting that left a pregnant mother dead on Sunday.

    The audio, which was captured by the officers’ dashcam video system, depicts the minutes leading up to the shooting of 30-year-old Charleena Lyles.

    The officers can be heard discussing a previous encounter with Lyles.

    “Is this the woman with the three kids?” one officer asks.

    “So this gal, she was the one making all these weird statements about how her and her daughter are going to turn into wolves,” the other responds.

    Eventually, after they make contact with Lyles, the officers can be heard telling her to “get back.”

    She asks them: “You ready, (expletive)?”

    An officer says: “We need help.”

    Then the shooting begins.

    You can listen to the full audio here. Note:

    SPD redacted portions of the audio file.

    I watched the first broadcast of the finale, and I watched the repeat broadcast just so I could see the Nancy, Bilquis, and Ostera scenes again.

    I saw a screen clip from this ep of the Bilquis backstory, so I was expecting the 70s bit, but the entire backstory was gorgeous and as per usual, Mr Nancy’s narration was on pointe.

    SPOILER ALERT:

    I hadn’t seen the entire blip of Ostera, but mahn, that final scene was breathtaking, from Wednesday FINALLY proclaiming his name, to “Easter” letting out her Ostera glory!!!

    Love…love…loved it.

    One of the best new show season finale I’ve seen in a while.

    So with no political experience, he is running for mayor on the Green Party ticket……

    Kalief Browder’s Brother Is Running For Mayor Of New York City

    Akeem Browder still grieves over the deaths of both his younger brother Kalief and his mother Venida ― but he is carrying on their legacy and fighting for change by running for mayor of New York City.

    Browder confirmed to HuffPost on Monday that he is officially throwing his name into the ring ― along with several other candidates ― and competing against incumbent NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio. Browder, 34, believes he is equipped and more ready than he’ll ever be for the campaign.

    “I lost my mother, I lost my brother,” he told HuffPost. “I have nothing left to lose.”

    ..Now, Browder said he is ready for political office and and running on the Green Party ticket. He said that he plans to be a strong competitor of De Blasio, especially on issues of criminal justice, saying that he disagrees with many of the laws De Blasio has introduced during his time in office. He thinks De Blasio’s 10-year plan to shut down Rikers Island is “lip-service” ― Browder believes the process can be completed in three years instead. As a candidate, Browder said he also takes issue with DeBlasio’s stances on immigration, education and poverty around the city.
