Kissinger in conclave at Vatican's Domus Sanctae Marthae ~30 Apr 2007

Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is staying at the Vatican's Domus Sanctae Marthae - residence of the conclave cardinals who elected Pope Benedict - while he participates in a Holy See seminar on charity and justice.

Catholic News Service reports that Mary Ann Glendon, a US law professor and president of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, invited Kissinger to speak at the academy's 27 April - 1 May plenary session.

The academy, which advises the Vatican on social issues, was to focus on "Charity and Justice in the Relations Among Peoples and Nations."

The meeting was to be the last in a series - held over the past 13 years - focusing on economic, social and legal issues tied to the theme of globalisation.

Glendon told reporters that Kissinger was invited after he was included on an academy members' list of "experts, some with scholarly expertise, some with practical experience with the problems" the academy faces.

The academy listens to the experts "the way, let's say, a congressional committee sometimes hears testimony," she said.

"We are not looking for guidance from people who come before us to testify," but "we do want the benefit of the great expertise and experience" the guests can offer, she said.

Dr Glendon said Kissinger, like the other guest speakers and experts, waived his usual speaking fee and expressed interest in participating in the meeting, not simply stopping by to give a speech.

And, she said, he accepted the invitation the Vatican extends to guest speakers to stay within the Vatican walls in the comfortable, but by no means deluxe, Domus Sanctae Marthae.

Kissinger, the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize winner, was scheduled to speak 28 April on "Current International Trends and World Peace."

George Clooney on MTP

https://twitter.com/danmericaCNN/status/721690376634019840/photo/1?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

Here's what Clooney said after his riff on Sanders & campaign finance. MTP notably didn't release it last night:



Kareem Abdul-Jabbar just endorsed Hillary Clinton with a brilliant think-piece you have to read

In an in-depth analysis which is steeped in history and scales back to the year 1945 and then the eighteenth century in its sociopolitical analysis, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar first pays his respects to the other liberal in the 2016 race: “I like Bernie Sanders, both for his straight-talking populism and the dedication to the welfare of all Americans in his heart. He’s a decent man with the courage of his convictions.” But he makes clear where he’s placing his chips when he opines that Sanders “will make a strong ally for Clinton.”

The NBA legend goes on to explain his Hillary endorsement: “Clinton possesses that rare but crucial combination of idealism and pragmatism. She can both envision a better world and take the necessary steps to make that vision a reality. She embodies the principles of the Age of Reason and isn’t afraid to fight against the confederacy of dunces who would undermine the principles of inclusion and diversity that America stands for.”

That’s right, he’s invoking the Age of Reason. Abdul-Jabbar goes on to conclude with a war analogy: “This election truly is a choice between hell and reason, and I want the best, most-qualified candidate to ensure that the United States lands on the right side of that battle.” Read the full endorsement.

http://www.dailynewsbin.com/news/kareem-abdul-jabbar/24494/

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: In this crucial election, I’m endorsing Hillary Clinton
https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/kareem-abdul-jabbar-in-this-crucial-election-im-endorsing-hillary-clinton/2016/04/15/305bd5fc-0244-11e6-9203-7b8670959b88_story.html?hpid=hp_no-name_opinion-card-e%3Ahomepage%2Fstory

Excerpt:

I’m frustrated and angry at hearing about frustration and anger toward Washington gridlock as an excuse for embracing candidates who will only add to the problem. But that’s what is happening with Trump and Cruz supporters. These voters share a distrust of experts, preferring “the wisdom of ordinary people.” Really? I prefer the wisdom of a trained physician when I have pain in my chest. One of the problems in Washington is that some legislators ignore the experts, such as the international community of scientists who have studied and confirmed global warming, so as to bury their heads and do nothing. When did we start devaluing intelligence and knowledge?

That’s why electing Clinton is important not just to maintaining the integrity of the United States but also to preventing an international trend that threatens to unleash a triumph of hatred and fear over reason. We are in a defining battle between the resurgence of the irrational, and all the horrors that have historically gone with it — violence, bigotry, fascism — and reason, with all the advances that have accompanied it — justice and freedom for all, regardless of ethnic background, social status, gender or sexual orientation.

The Vatican Didn't Invite Senator Sanders To Meet With the Pope ~plus more info

http://www.politicususa.com/2016/04/15/mischief-mistake-vatican-didnt-invite-senator-sanders-meet-pope.html

They seem to have more information than I've seen elsewhere!

...According to a theologian, Catholicism scholar, and Vatican expert Massimo Faggioli, “it is noteworthy that this latest episode developed while there is a transition at the office of the apostolic nuncio (diplomat) to the United States.” The transition from Carlo Viganò, who the Pope forced to retire over the “Kim Davis” ambush, to French immigration advocate, Christophe Pierre is still ongoing.

Mr. Viganò was in Rome when the “invitation to the Vatican” news broke and Vatican watchers are flummoxed that not one U.S. bishop, no-one at the office of the “apostolic nuncio” and no-one at the Vatican’s Secretariat of State was aware of, or in communication about, the “unprecedented” invitation from the Holy Father leading them to conclude the official Vatican invitation was not an official anything.

As was announced yesterday by Federico Lombardi, director of the Holy See Press Office, “the Holy Father will not be meeting with the candidate, Bernie Sanders.” Mr. Faggioli said this “Sanders’ invitation episode is reminiscent of the Kim Davis episode during Pope Francis’ visit to the United States in September.” Apparently this Pope is a quick study and was not getting caught flat-footed again by American politicians.

Another Vatican expert, publisher and editor of Inside the Vatican magazine, Robert Moynihan, said that indeed, Michael Shank had been in Rome to speak at the same school Senator Sanders is scheduled to speak at a couple of weeks before the “invitation” was announced. Moynihan related that Shank was “quite transparent about his antipathy toward Hillary Clinton and his lack of respect for Obama’s presidency;” details not surprising to Americans aware of the growing animus towards Democrats.

Bernie Sanders finds ‘the right candidates’ (to fundraise for) ~Rachel Maddow Blog

It’s as if there’s a pattern emerging.

The big news here, of course, is the shift itself: Sanders was raising money exclusively for himself, and now he’s not. This, to a degree, brings him more in line with Clinton’s approach of supporting other Democrats seeking other offices.

But even here, there’s a stark difference between the two. Team Clinton is supporting the national and state parties generally, while Team Sanders is supporting more specific allies. It’s a matter of perspective which approach is more compelling.

That said, I’d be interested in hearing more from Sanders about his long-term intentions in this area. After all, the president – any president – is practically by definition also the head of his or her party. What kind of role would Sanders envision for himself with regard to the DNC and related campaign committees? Would Democratic candidates who only agreed with parts of Sanders’ agenda still be able to count on support from a Sanders White House? As the convention draws closer, they’re the kind of questions superdelegates seem likely to ask.

Rachel Maddow Talks Hillary, Hate Mail & More in Our First Non-Nude Issue ~Playboy

https://www.playboy.com/articles/playboy-interview-rachel-maddow

More in link, some excerpts:

What difference would it make to have a woman as president?
It breaks the glass ceiling, which means the next woman to do it will be the second woman. Not that it always works that way. Britain had just the one; Israel had just the one. You do see when other countries get a female leader, particularly an iconic female leader, it doesn’t necessarily open the floodgates. It is unusual that we’re this old, robust democracy and pluralistic society, and we haven’t gotten ours yet. The gender achievement at the top in every single political representation really sucks. I mean, we’re super-psyched that we have 20 women senators. Yay, 20! Um, there are 100. I can do that math.
.



Can you picture him being president?
Bernie Sanders is running this fascinating campaign where he’s all about people being angry and dissatisfied and frustrated. He wants you to be disaffected and frustrated about an economic system that keeps you from ever ascending the ladder. That is a great emotion to tap into for a politician but a hard lesson to sell in terms of where people should channel it. If that message works for you, it’s cathartic. People love him. They really do feel the Bern. He gets tens of thousands of people to turn out, but that sort of economic populism is a tough sell. The diagnosis is right; the cure isn’t easy. My prediction for Bernie: populist hero forever but hard to imagine him still being there at the convention.



What would it take to get the National Rifle Association on board with changes like those?
Raw political force. The power of the NRA used to be that it held sway over Democrats in a way that was unusual for a right-leaning interest group. More and more, the NRA is just a Republican interest group. As recently as the Bill Clinton era and even after, in the George W. Bush era, a considerable number of Democrats used to compete on the basis of their good standing with the NRA. Democrats now compete on the basis of who is the most aggressive against the NRA. That hasn’t leaked over into Republican politics yet, but Democrats have really changed. When Democrats win, the NRA loses. It was a brilliant strategy for decades to be able to keep its hold on Democrats, but it just pushed it too hard. I think Wayne LaPierre made them into an embarrassing organization that no Democrat wants to be a part of now. That’s really going to hurt them, but it will require raw Democratic political power. If the Democrats use their political might in the 2016 election, within four years the NRA could be effectively dead in terms of strangle-holding those federal issues.


Give us your report card on the president’s two terms.
Obama will go down as one of the more consequential and good presidents in American history, mostly because of what he did with what he was handed. Recovering from the Great Recession alone made me glad Paul Ryan wasn’t in the vice president’s office trying to make economic policy and going, “Hey, we’ve got to cut taxes for the rich!” In many ways, Obama held the tiller firm and got us through a terrible time.

Two of 3 congressional candidates Sanders backed are running against gay Dems in primaries (HRC GP)

http://www.washingtonblade.com/2016/04/14/sanders-raising-funds-against-gay-congressional-candidates/
Sanders raising funds against gay congressional candidates


According to the Huffington Post, the fundraising email isn’t the first time two of these three candidates have worked with the Sanders campaign. Both Flores and Jaypal introduced the presidential candidate during rallies in their respective home states of Nevada and Washington. Flores also appeared in an advertisement for Sanders that ran before the Nevada caucuses.

But two of these three candidates are seeking to defeat openly gay contenders seeking the Democratic nomination to run for Congress. As of right now, a total of seven lawmakers serving in the Congress are openly gay, lesbian or bisexual, or slightly more than 1 percent of the legislative body. That’s short of the estimated 3.5 percent of the U.S. population as a whole who identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual, according to the Williams Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles. (Transgender people make up an estimated one-third of one percent of the U.S. population, but no member of Congress, nor any member of a state legislature, is openly transgender.)

Teachout is running against Will Yandik, an openly gay farmer and Livingston deputy town supervisor who recently had a child with his same-sex spouse. Their primary is on June 28, weeks after the presidential contest on Tuesday.
Jayapal is competing against two openly gay candidates: Joe McDermott, a former member of the Washington legislature and now a member of the King County Council, and Brady Walkinshaw, a member of the Washington State House. Their primary is set for August 2, some time after the Washington presidential caucuses for Democrats, which took place on March 26, and the Republicans, which is set for May 24.

Both McDermott and Walkinshaw told the Washington Blade they objected to Sanders’ endorsements of their opponents at a time LGBT people aren’t proportionately represented in Congress

Sanders says Southern primaries ‘distort reality’ ~ Rachel Maddow Blog

http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/sanders-says-southern-primaries-distort-reality#break

Excerpts:

Bernie Sanders has made clear he much prefers talking about his political vision, not the campaign process, but there’s one part of the process the Vermont senator talks about quite a bit. Time magazine reported:
Bernie Sanders told “Nightly Show” host Larry Wilmore at a taping Wednesday evening that scheduling Southern states early in the Democratic primary “distorts reality.” […]

“Well, you know,” Sanders said, “people say, ‘Why does Iowa go first, why does New Hampshire go first,’ but I think that having so many Southern states go first kind of distorts reality as well.”
Comments like these are an extension of a standard argument from the Sanders campaign: it may look like Hillary Clinton enjoys a sizable advantage, but her lead only exists because of the South. The “reality,” when it’s not “distorted,” is a lot different.

But the more Sanders makes this argument, the less sure I am of the point he’s trying to make.

I’m absolutely certain that the senator isn’t trying to dismiss the importance of African-American voters – such an argument would be completely contrary to his progressive values and campaign strategy – but when Sanders says “reality” is “distorted” by primary results from states in which black voters dominate, it’s not at all clear which reality he’s referring to.

Perhaps Sanders’ aides have encouraged him to make this argument. Maybe it’s not too late for him to remove this rhetorical arrow from his quiver.

Comparing Bernie Sanders' Down-Ballot Fundraising to That of Hillary Clinton

Long article comparing BS and HRC fundraising for DEMs

EXCERPT:

...What's most ironic about all this is the fact that Bernie Sanders constantly denigrates Hillary Clinton for having these expensive fundraising events for the Victory Fund, but it is these events that may very well elect a Democratic president and Democratic Senate. While Bernie Sanders hoards the six million contributions his campaign had collected and refuses to use his joint DNC account, Hillary Clinton is out raising money up and down the Democratic ballot regardless of whom the Democratic candidates may be supporting. Yes, that's right: someone like Lucy Flores may very well be receiving campaign help from Hillary Clinton's Victory Fund via the Nevada State Democratic Party even though she's gone on record as supporting Bernie Sanders. Because to Hillary Clinton, it doesn't matter who these Democratic candidates support now, it's that they win at all costs come November. ...
