June 2, 2015 - accent chair
Senate Republicans convened in a Strom Thurmond assembly room to protest about Rand Paul’s antics and not, for what it’s worth, that there’s a Strom Thurmond assembly room. John McCain, for one, lambasted Paul’s moves as a “fundraising exercise,” one that was substantially gripping John McCain from some fundraising exercises behind home. And opposite First Street NE, a Supreme Court ruled in preference of a Muslim Abercrombie and Fitch worker who claimed she was discriminated opposite given her conduct is not as prohibited as a ripped white guy’s torso … or something. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Monday, Jun 1st, 2015:
JEB NOT WINNING OVER GEORGE’S TEAM – Maybe if Jeb were improved during nicknames he wouldn’t find himself in this situation. Peter Baker: “While George W. Bush himself and many in his circle, generally those closest to a family, are eager about a awaiting of a third Bush presidency, many of a Republican feet soldiers who worked for a former boss in his campaigns and his administration have not rushed to behind his brother’s rising operation. A sampling conducted mostly by email of about 120 people who worked for George W. Bush — from cupboard secretaries to unfamiliar process advisers to allege aides — found about 25 who pronounced they were ancillary his younger brother. Fifty others pronounced they were neutral or ancillary another candidate, while a rest did not respond, flitting adult a possibility to announce devotion to a subsequent Bush candidacy. Some bay a same reservations that other Republicans do about a idea of a dynastic presidency upheld from one member of a family to another. Some simply wish a uninformed start, final that a celebration would make a stronger box opposite Hillary Rodham Clinton, a expected Democratic candidate, by nominating a new figure like Senator Marco Rubio of Florida or Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin. Some helper doubts about Jeb Bush specifically, even on policies he shares with his brother.” [NYT]

Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park, named after a famous themes a former boss laid out in his 1941 State of a Union address: that everybody around a universe ought to be means to suffer a leisure of speech, a leisure of worship, a leisure from wish and a leisure from fear…The symbolism of Roosevelt’s themes lines adult with a 4 categorical issuesClinton’s discuss has emphasized: building an “economy of tomorrow,” strengthening families and communities, reforming discuss financial and fortifying inhabitant security.

So does a former arch justice. Nonetheless, Republican senators are creation skeleton to sequence one of a nation’s many limiting stagnation laws after this year. State senators finished their annual unchanging event in May yet holding a final opinion indispensable to overrule Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon’s halt of a check that could cut a generation of stagnation advantages to as few as 13 weeks — a magnitude that was partial of a Republican pull to make Missouri some-more appealing to businesses, whose taxes financial a stagnation system.” Florida did a 13 week thing and also for a while done stagnation claimants take an absurd math and reading test.

MCCONNELL RENEWS NSA PUSH – The usually doubt now is who will play Rand Paul in “Purge 3: Terrorist for a Day” (our opinion is Bill Paxton in a bad wig). Jordain Carney: “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) pulpy his colleagues Monday to support changes to a USA Freedom Act that he pronounced would safeguard that a new notice complement works as intended.

McConnell wants to extend a transition time from 6 months to one year, observant that it would ‘ensure there is adequate time to build and exam a complement that does not nonetheless exist.'” [The Hill]
ICYMI: Some Republican senators still don’t consider all is pointless: “Behind sealed doors in a Senate’s Strom Thurmond Room, Republican senators lashed out during a youth Kentucky Republican’s daring position to force a death of pivotal sections of a PATRIOT Act, a law probably all of them support. Indiana Sen. Dan Coats’ critique was maybe a many biting: He indicted a senator of “lying” about a matter in sequence to lift income for his presidential campaign, according to 3 people who attended a meeting…The summary competence have gotten by to Paul solely for one thing: The libertarian-minded senator skipped a hour-long meeting. That usually murderous his colleagues more. ‘Anything that goes opposite anything he believes, he never comes,’ Coats pronounced in an interview. “It’s always useful if you’re in there operative to have your position understood, and we all learn a lot and we all try to come to a many improved bargain of what we’re perplexing to do.’ ‘He indispensable to be there,’ pronounced Sen.

Edward Snowden is totally winning a day (see we during Tammy’s brunch subsequent year!): “So what altered between 2010 and 2015? ‘Because of Edward Snowden, there’s a notice — that is not loyal — yet there’s a notice that we’re invading people’s privacy,’ Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), explained final month… Nelson isn’t a usually Washington lawmaker who has struggled to clear Snowden’s change on a discuss that has kept senators adult late and divided from home for dual weekends now. It’s tough to give credit to someone we wish imprisoned. But on Sunday night, as tempers frayed, vote-counters strategized, and Rand Paul talked, senators could no longer equivocate articulate about a ex-NSA contractor’s disclosures. ‘It’s given we’re here,’ Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), a chair of a Senate unfamiliar family cabinet and a extreme NSA defender, pronounced of a Snowden disclosures. ‘People began formulating a parable around it. That did occur. The open sermon around it combined a parable about what this module is and what it isn’t.'” [HuffPost’s Jessica Schulberg]

Samantha Elauf, a pursuit seeker during a core of a case, practical for a sales position during an Abercrombie children’s store in Oklahoma in 2008.

THINK ABOUT THE REAL VICTIMS: THE LOBBYISTS – Is there some arrange of “in box of emergency, mangle potion for Ken Duberstein” that lobbyists can strike in times of financial uncertainty? “Ex-Speaker J.
