Now that the Clinton campaign believes they have the nomination in the bag, stories are starting to leak out regarding upon the matters Hillary Clinton will focus her energy and "political capital" come 2017 when she takes over the reins from Barack Obama. I imagine you are wondering what her priorities might be? Income inequality? Make the wealthiest people and corporations pay their fair share of taxers? Raise the minimum wage? End the our endless wars in the Middle East?
Dear Caucus99Percent Community members in Washington State:
I am running for the US House from the 3rd Congressional District of Washington State.
I am looking at a May 20th Deadline to submit 1,740 validated Washington State registered Voter signatures to the state Secretary of State’s office, to ensure I get on the WA State Primary ballot showing up in voters mailboxes on July 15, 2016.
It's on the conservative side of the aisle, however they sometimes get it right
In what can only be described as an Alice Through the Looking Glass election, there is little doubt that it is Mrs Clinton who the “establishment” candidate rather than her Republican opponent.
I hadn't seen Boehner's comment on Cruz
Several years ago, I switched my registration from Democrat to No-Party-Affiliation because, like so many others, I felt that the Democrats were largely failing to offer candidates that are consistent with my sense of how the party should operate.
What follows is political analysis based on a supposition that Hillary and Trump win their Party's nominations. It is derived from a notable opinion piece by Dan Balz entitled, "What would Trump be like as GOP nominee?" I paraphrase some of Balz's passages and use quotes, as well. Our conclusions are different. Dan Balz is Chief Correspondent at The Washington Post.
The General Election Strategy
Clinton and her team are planning to go early and hard against Trump. They are convinced that in the general election, Trump will be the same kind of opponent that he was in the Republican Primaries; that Trump's fall campaign style will continue to be slashing. They expect Trump to come at Clinton from both the right and the left.
Clinton’s team is preparing for what they believe will be one of the nastiest campaigns in recent memory. “Hillary set out a year ago to be a champion for everyday people and to help families finally start getting ahead again in this economy,” said Robby Mook, Clinton’s campaign manager. “That’s what she’s going to keep talking about in the general election. . . . Trump, I’m sure, will try to bully and throw out insults. That’s not going to derail her.”
But the Trump that Hillary's Team is preparing for is not the Trump who will be running in the general election. And, that could derail her.
Loretta Lynch spoke with Buzzfeed's Chris Gender on Friday on a range of issues, including transgender protections.
Lynch’s Justice Department is one of the key agencies advancing that Obama administration position — first adopted by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission — that sex discrimination bans for the workplace and schools should be read to include a ban on anti-transgender discrimination, including allowing people to use restrooms that correspond with their gender identity.
Put on your fighting clothes.

From The New York Times: Thousands March Singing Marseillaise

Bernie's Press Release: https://berniesanders.com/press-release/politico-exposes-clinton-campaig...
Remember all the Hillpeople always ripping Bernie for not helping the downballot Dems and bragging on Hillary's wonderful generosity and selflessness in helping the party faithful? SHOCKER -- like everything else Clinton, all bullshit and mirrors.
Even as the Second World War continued
In our day these economic truths have become accepted as self-evident. We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights under which a new basis of security and prosperity can be established for all regardless of station, race, or creed.
Among these are:
The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the Nation;
California's Democratic Party allows independents to vote in its upcoming primary.
When the oppressed are divided and ruled, a dialectic of united versus divided response emerges (February 6, 1869 illustration from Harper's Weekly: The National Colored Convention in Session at Washington, D.C.--Sketched by Theo. R. Davis in 1869.)
