DC trip- National Musuem of African American History, Climate protest/ Dr King Lincoln Day101

Just back from Washington DC this weekend- to all who agree with me-
I sincerely recommend going to see the new National Musuem of African-American History
Tickets are free, but have to be obtained on-line many months in advance and are sold out quickly

Spent the early morning at Dr. King's memorial, President Lincoln's memorial
Spent 1/2 the day at the museum Saturday
Spent a few hours at the Women's/Children Climate protest

At least 3 hours or more are needed at the Musuem.

and in the evening, just by luck re-watched on tv, Judgement at Nuremberg, about the Nuremberg Trials
after the Holocaust
the movie starring Spencer Tracy, Monty Clift, Max Schell, Richard Widmark, Judy Garland, Marlene Dietrich and many others

the museum brings out many valuable points
brought tears to my eyes at many points (and to the eyes of many other visitors).

The Honorable John Lewis is featured in a display at the museum.
One of the true icons in American History.

the official website
https://nmaahc.si.edu/

I have been to the Civil Rights Musuem in Memphis (which I also recommend) but to have this in DC
on the Great Mall, with all the history around.

The lower floors go in chronological order (C1 C2 C3 are the floors dealing in history and the Civil Rights Movement in much detail
the upper floors deal with sports movies tv singers broadway culture


It is deplorable that the fights long ago won have to be refought.
Really deplorable.

and note- I have been to hundreds/thousands of events that needed advance tickets, this museum was the single hardest ticket to obtain. We went to DC because of the museum, the protest was joined spur of the moment.

Day 100 President Lincoln-Dr. King- President Obama

Day 98 President Obama points out- Obama care far more popular than Donald Trump,61 to 35

Live from DC and seeing the Mets defeat the Nationals
and looking forward to visiting President Lincoln, FDR and Dr. King and seeing the
African-American museum that is almost impossible to get the free tickets to see
All this and temperatures in the 90s

Day 98 and Trump is now 0 for 98 and he has the audacity to whine that the Presidency is harder
than his former life

but WAPO has the following Cool Stat of the Day
Washington Post: “Trump has been in office for 99 days. As of our latest update on day 98, we’ve counted 452 false or misleading claims.”

https://politicalwire.com/2017/04/28/obama-notes-obamacare-popular-trump/
Former President Obama hailed the political resilience of his signature health care law at a private event, pointing out that Obamacare is now more popular than his successor trying to repeal it: President Donald Trump, CNN reports.

“Obama also predicted that it will be challenging for Trump and fellow Republicans to make any sweeping changes to a law that now provides health insurance for so many people, as he remarked how difficult it was for him to get Obamacare enacted into law in 2009.”

Day 97 Will this be 1 or 2 major diversions to get media to ignore Putin Russia Gate?

(note, and this is not the big media story I referred to a few times in the past few months)

and to note again, Justice Garland should be named the independent prosecutor for
the Putin Russia Trump investigation (much like Justice Warren was for the named for him commission
(that Fixer Ford was a major part of)

from the rightwing Politico-

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/04/27/will-trump-release-the-missing-jfk-files-215079

Politico: “The nation’s conspiracy-theorist-in-chief is facing a momentous decision. Will President Donald Trump allow the public to see a trove of thousands of long-secret government files about the event that, more than any other in modern American history, has fueled conspiracy theories – the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy?”

Under the deadline set by a 1992 law, Trump has six months left to decide whether he will block the release of an estimated 3,600 files related to the assassination that are still under seal at the Archives. From what is known of the JFK documents, most come from the CIA and FBI, and a number may help resolve lingering questions about whether those agencies missed evidence of a conspiracy in Kennedy’s death. As with every earlier release of JFK assassination documents in the 53 years since shots rang out in Dealey Plaza in Dallas, it is virtually certain that some of the files will be seized on to support popular conspiracy theories about Kennedy’s murder; other documents are likely to undermine them.

There is no little irony in the fact that decision will be left to Trump, long a promoter of so many baseless conspiracy theories about everything from his predecessor’s birthplace to the notion that the father of one of his campaign-trail rivals was in league with JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.

For the first time, the Trump White House is acknowledging that it is focused on the issue, even if it offers no hint about what the President will do. A White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Politico last week that the Trump administration “is familiar with the requirements” of the 1992 law and that White House is working with the National Archives “to enable a smooth process in anticipation of the October deadline.”

Under the 1992 JFK Assassination Records Collection Act, the library of documents about Kennedy’s death must be made public in full by the deadline of this October 26, the law’s 25th anniversary, unless Trump decides otherwise. It is his decision alone.

Day 96 Trump's Gen. Michael Flynn seemingly broke law accepting Putin Russian money

When was the last time one saw Rupert Murdoch's/ Fox's NY Post and NPR agree on something?
(never?)

Day 93- Congratulations to President Macron & bigly defeat of Trump & Bernie's candidates

Now that I stopped crying over the sensational finale' of "Feud", heartbreaking it was, and before
watching Asia Kate Dillon in Billions- my comments on today's elections-

The world awakens.
a complete repudiation of Donald Trump and his policies and the world avoids another Jorg Haider,
and demagogues and the the far left, far right and anarchists all big losers.

Common sense prevails.

More and more, who Bernie Sanders voted for in 1980 foretells more and more and more.
(not 1984 or the primaries of 1980, but the election of 1980.)

and note- the polls were basically spot-on, as they always are, in elections (not withstanding the years
of theft and stolen elections. Why the pollster aggragates don't stand up for their correct results, I shall
never understand, it's as if they have a chip on their shoulder to start off with, and are currying favors from
the alt-media(fake-media which includes that work of fiction in the new gossipy (with no sources named)
swiftboating of President Clinton).

anyhoo-
congratulations to President Macron and Common Sense prevails.
Big victory today for Hillary Clinton.

Day 92 Republican Comey tried to shield the FBI from politics, then he shaped the election

An expose on how Republican FBI Director James (Javert) Comey helped throw an election to the
Republican party
(This is a lot more intriguing than the gossipy swiftboat like anonymous sources (fake news) new book
on President Clinton)
==========================================================================
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/22/us/politics/james-comey-election.html?_r=1

Comey Tried to Shield the F.B.I. From Politics. Then HeShaped an Election.
As the F.B.I. investigated Hillary Clinton and the Trump campaign, James B. Comey tried to keep the bureau out
of politics but plunged it into the center of a bitter election.


By MATT APUZZO, MICHAEL S. SCHMIDT, ADAM GOLDMAN and ERIC LICHTBLAUAPRIL 22, 2017


WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision.

Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed he was obligated to tell Congress that had changed.

“Should you consider what you’re about to do may help elect Donald Trump president?” an adviser asked him, Mr. Comey recalled recently at a closed meeting with F.B.I. agents.He could not let politics affect his decision, he replied. “If we ever start considering who might be affected, and in what way, by what we do, we’re done,” he told the agents.
What he did not say was that the F.B.I. was also investigating the campaign of Donald J. Trump. Just weeks before, Mr. Comey had declined to answer a question from Congress about whether there was such an investigation. Only in March, long after the election, did Mr. Comey confirm that there was one.



An examination by The New York Times, based on interviews with more than 30 current and former law enforcement, congressional and other government officials, found that while partisanship was not a factor in Mr. Comey’s approach to the two investigations, he handled them in starkly different ways. In the case of Mrs. Clinton, he rewrote the script, partly based on the F.B.I.’s expectation that she would win and fearing the bureau would be accused of helping her. In the case of Mr. Trump, he conducted the investigation by the book, with the F.B.I.’s traditional secrecy.

Day 86-Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D)- I could avidly support a ticket of Warren/Booker or Obama

This would combine the 3 parts needed to win as the last 4 terms of Democratic Presidents
needed to win (The landslide victories of Barack Obama and the landslide 8 years of the Clinton's,
who without their main voters in 1992 1996 2008 2012 and Hillary's voters in 2016( 69 million plus)

and a 50 state strategy as Tom Perez and Ellison want, includes ALL the south

But this is why I so easily can support Sen. Warren- she is proud of the (D) next to her name
Making her actually a REAL Democratic Candidate.

One of 29 great choices for the Democratic Party I would support in 2020 and now, Senator Warren is
resoundingly the #1 most powerful US Senator who is Democratic. (and the most feared Senator by Mitch McConnell who rudely won't even talk to her).

https://politicalwire.com/2017/04/15/elizabeth-warren-didnt-say/

The most revealing thing about Elizabeth Warren’s new book is all the material she left out, the Boston Globe reports.

“She dispatches her decision not to run for president in little more than a page. She forgoes any autopsy of what Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party got wrong. She doesn’t even mention meeting with Clinton in Washington to discuss her prospects for joining the ticket as Clinton’s vice presidential pick.”

“Instead, Warren has produced a policy-focused (or, in her word, ‘nerdy’) book that is reflective of a politician whose future could depend on preserving Democratic alliances. Put another way, this is no Bernie Sanders-style screed.”

Day 86- April 16, 2017
4 minutes until Day 87, April 17 which we celebrate President Lincoln (who is generally considered by most to
be the single greatest President ever (though I consider him tied with President Obama)
and Washington DC Emancipation Day. (but that is for another thread tomorrow.)

Day 86, where in NYC, would you believe, it was about 86 degrees today. Summer, in the city.
