QUOTE OF THE DAY –

“I made it clear that the United States does not seek to impose our form of government on Vietnam or any nation … at the same time, we will continue to speak out on human rights.”

President Obama upon arriving in Hanoi, Viet-Nam standing in front of the Vietnamese flag, alongside the Vietnamese president, and the closest he came to criticizing elections in which candidates could be kicked off state-approved lists for offenses such as claims they didn’t pay their sanitation fees.

(Interesting statement considering there are plenty of V-N Vets who have vivid memories of where they were first billeted upon arriving in Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City — such as… OH…SAY…. The Intercontinental Hotel on Tran-Hung-Dao Street (heading South toward Cholon).)

TSA SECURITY BOSS GETS THE BOOT –

If you’ve traveled by air anytime during the past couple of months then you know what the security check lines have been like.  And that’s why “the head of security for the U.S. Transportation Security Administration has been removed from his position, according to an internal TSA memo on Monday seen by Reuters, after the agency was criticized for long lines at airport security checkpoints.   Kelly Hoggan, who had served as TSA assistant administrator for security operations since May 2013, was replaced by his deputy, Darby LaJoye, who will serve on an acting basis, according to the memo from agency head Peter Neffenger”.

PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGNING SNL STYLE –

Hillary and Bernie – (kind of… )

SANDERS BEING HANDED HIS HAT… (What’s taking so long?  The door is right over there…).

Is the left turning on its darling, Bernie Sanders? On Friday, Netroots titan Markos Moulitsas, namesake of the liberal Daily Kos, dropped a rhetorical bomb on the Bern, blaming the candidate for doing too little to denounce death threats received by the Nevada Democratic Party after Sanders’ state convention delegates complained they had received unfair treatment. “The problem isn’t Bernie Sanders’ supporters,” Moulitsas wrote. “It’s Bernie Sanders himself … [He] refuses to forcefully and unambiguously reject that violence, instead rationalizing and explaining it away with a mix of grievances and outright conspiracy theory.”

 


TRUMP NOT A CLIMATE CHANGE BELIEVER – BUT…

…he still wants his golf course protected –  Donald Trump says he is “not a big believer in global warming.”   He has called it “a total hoax,” “bullshit” and “pseudoscience.”  But he is also trying to build a sea wall designed to protect one of his golf courses from “global warming and its effects.”

CBS POLLING SHOWS INTERESTING RESULTS –

As a divisive primary season winds down and both Clinton and Trump face the inevitable questions about uniting their parties, at least eight in ten of their respective partisans are already preparing to back them — even if it’s only out of desire to stop the other side. Trump has at least eight in ten Republicans behind him in Florida and Ohio and Clinton has at least eight in ten Democrats behind her in both states.

CLINTON – SANDERS CONFAB SOON –

“Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said in an interview broadcast early Sunday that she will listen to rival Bernie Sanders “when he’s ready to talk.”   “Well, certainly, we’re going to talk with him when he’s ready to talk, and listen to him. And we will take into account what he is asking for,” Clinton said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I think that’s part of the process.”   When asked by host Chuck Todd if she would be in favor of getting rid of super delegates, however, Clinton said she would not negotiate with Sanders “today on your show.”

MORE THAN HALF POLLED SAY TRUMP NOT QUALIFIED –

“The coming presidential race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump begins in a virtual dead heat, a competition between two candidates viewed unfavorably by a majority (56%) of the current electorate and with voters motivated as much by whom they don’t like as by whom they do, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.   Never in the history of the Post-ABC poll have the two major party nominees been viewed as harshly as Clinton and Trump.”

2016 SLATED TO BE END OF AN ERA IN POLITICS –

“For political observers, 2016 feels like an earthquake — a once-in-a-generation event that will remake American politics. The Republican party is fracturing around support for Donald Trump. An avowed socialist has made an insurgent challenge for the Democratic Party’s nomination. On left and right, it feels as though a new era is beginning.   And a new era is beginning, but not in the way most people think. Though this election feels like the beginning of a partisan realignment, it’s actually the end of one.”
