Donald Trump Keeps Draining Swamp By Replacing Food Lobbyist With Former Food Lobbyist

We don’t know much about what President-elect Donald Trump plans to do about the many problems — like food insecurity, environmental pollution, unsustainable farming practices and obesity — facing the U.S. food system. But what we do know so far is cause for alarm to many food advocates. To date, Trump has not announced his pick for the secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Though various reports have narrowed the list to a half-dozen or so names, the final selection likely won’t be made for at least another week or two. In the meantime, focus has shifted to the names of the individuals Trump previously tasked to direct the transition of the department as part of his agriculture advisory committee, a group initially headed up by veteran D.C. food and agriculture lobbyist Michael Torrey. Torrey, whose recent clients include Little Caesar’s, the Snack Food Association and the soda-pushing American Beverage Association, abruptly resigned from the post last month after Trump announced a ban on lobbyists serving in the transition effort. Appointed in Torrey’s place was Joel Leftwich, staff director of the Senate Agriculture Committee and a long-time advisor for Senator Pat Roberts (R-Kansas). Leftwich himself is a former lobbyist, having worked for two years as senior director of public policy and government affairs for PepsiCo between 2013 and 2015 and, prior to that, serving for three months as the program manager of federal government affairs at chemical giant DuPont in 2010. function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); Prior to that, Leftwich did work for a year as a congressional liaison to the USDA. (That was between 2004 and 2005, during George W. Bush’s second administration). But the industry ties of Leftwich and many other members of Trump’s ag advisory committee are alarming, if not surprising, to advocates for a healthy and sustainable food system. They fear that advancements on such issues during the Obama administration could be slowed or reversed altogether in the coming years. Jim O’Hara, director of health promotion policy at the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest, told The Huffington Post that Leftwich’s background indicates industry interests may be prioritized by Trump’s USDA. This could mean a rollback of food safety laws or nutrition initiatives. “Obviously, having pro-industry folks on the transition team who are likely to put in place pro-business policies without balancing public health concerns is an issue of concern,” O’Hara said. Tiffany Finck-Haynes, food futures campaigner at the Friends of the Earth environmental nonprofit, agreed. Leftwich’s close affiliation with Sen. Roberts, the lead opponent to legislation allowing states to approve laws requiring genetically modified foods to be labeled, is alarming, she said. “Basically, Trump is replacing a lobbyist with a former lobbyist,” Finck-Haynes said. “That indicates to us that he is much more serious about protecting corporate interests than protecting the American public and the environment.” But other advocates are less concerned with the direction the Trump administration’s ag appointments appear to be heading. Scott Faber, vice president at the Environmental Working Group, described Leftwich’s past connections to industry as an asset given that many companies, including PepsiCo, are working to better cater their products to consumers’ demand for healthier, more sustainable choices. “He sort of straddles the divide where food companies tend to think the customer’s always right, while many farm lobbyists tend to think the customer’s always wrong,” Faber told HuffPost. Further, the revolving door between lobbying and posts like Leftwich’s isn’t particularly unusual — and that’s true of both Democratic and Republican administrations, according to Ferd Hoefner, policy director at the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition. While representing NSAC on the hill, Hoefner took part in meetings with Leftwich on the Senate Agriculture Committee, on issues like authorizing a farm-to-school program as part of the 2010 Child Nutrition Act. He described the experience as positive. “Joel certainly is someone who knows how things work,” Hoefner said. “He has a practical side. We may not always agree on positions, but we can certainly easily work together to move things forward.” Still, it will be too early to know exactly what a Trump administration will mean for our food system until the USDA secretary pick is announced. One apparent front-runner, Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, a Republican, has raised eyebrows for both his temperament and food policy positions. Miller called Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton a “cunt” on Twitter last month, in a tweet he blamed on an error made by a campaign staffer. And he’s been labeled a “king of cupcakes and deep-fried advocate” for his junk food-inclusive approach to school nutrition. Trump’s selection this week of U.S. Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) as secretary of health and human services, the agency that oversees the Food and Drug Administration, has also prompted concerns. As Politico reported Wednesday, Price’s congressional record includes voting against the Food Safety and Modernization Act and the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act. He also opposed menu labeling rules for convenience stores and grocers under the Affordable Care Act. Still, food advocates are pressing on. Regardless of whom the Trump administration selects as agriculture secretary, Tom Colicchio, celebrity chef and co-founder of the food advocacy group Food Policy Action, emphasized that his organization will push them to “take care of the health of our country across the board.” “We encourage Washington to keep turning the dial forward towards good food policy because that is what consumers want and every American deserves,” Colicchio said in an email. ―-― Joseph Erbentraut covers promising innovations and challenges in the areas of food and water.

Trump's Corporate Takeover Of Federal Agencies

"Trump has converted the GOP into a populist working-class party," Trump advisor and far-right economist Stephen Moore told Republican members of Congress at a caucus meeting. Well, advisor Moore, meet the Trump transition team. The leader of the would-be populist working-class party has invited rogues' gallery of insiders - corporate lawyers, investment fund managers, corporate executives and wonks hailing from corporate-backed think tanks - to populate the "landing teams" that are doing the nitty-gritty work of transitioning government agencies from control by the outgoing Obama administration to the incoming Trump regime. It turns out that nearly three-quarters of the landing teams come from the corporate world or corporate-affiliated think tanks, according to a Public Citizen review. And, although the Trump team has kicked registered lobbyists off the transition, at least 13 of the 71 landing team members have been registered lobbyists in the past, some as recent as last year. What does the purportedly "populist working-class" transition team look like? Take a look: Paul Atkins is in charge of financial regulation for the Trump transition and on the landing teams for the Elizabeth Warren-created Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) . He is the CEO of Patomak Global Partners, a consulting firm that advises financial services companies on compliance issues. Atkins formerly served as a Republican commissioner of the Securities and Exchange Commission, where he was viewed as being largely opposed to regulation. Joel Leftwich is the staff director for the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, & Forestry. He was a lobbyist for PepsiCo from 2013 to 2015, and in 2010 was a lobbyist for DuPont. There are 10 people on the landing team for the Department of Defense. More than half work now or previously for defense contractors, including Mira Ricardel, a former vice president for Boeing known for advocacy of space laser weapons. Michael Dougherty is on the landing team for the Department of Homeland Security. He is the CEO of Secure Identity & Biometrics Association, a trade group that represents the interests of member corporations whose business is security screening technology for airports and border crossings. Previously he worked for Raytheon, a security contractor and, before that, as a Homeland Security official under President George W. Bush. Doug Domenech is on the landing team for the Department of Interior. He is director of the Fueling Freedom Project at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, whose self-proclaimed purpose is to "explain the forgotten moral case for fossil fuels." He also worked for 12 years for the Forest Resources Association, a national trade association representing the forest products industry. There are 9 people on the landing team for the Department of Justice, predictably drawn heavily from the ranks of corporate law firms. Two thirds of them are involved in corporate criminal defense work! There are policies that could be put in place to address the revolving door problem - individuals leaving government and going to work for the industries they formerly regulated, and from regulated industry into government positions. President Obama took important steps in this direction with an executive order at the outset of his administration but only addressed registered lobbyists. The solution is to change the focus from registered lobbyists to those with financial conflicts of interest - people from or who work for regulated industry should not be able to move seamlessly into jobs as the regulators. But what's going on with the Trump administration is beyond fixing with clear policies. We are witnessing not a populist, working class revolution, but the wholesale takeover of government by an extremist faction of the corporate class. It has become conventional wisdom in Washington that "personnel is policy" - that the people appointed to key positions will make the policy decisions, and are therefore even more important than any particular policy choice. At no time is this more true than now, with a president-elect with minimal interest in policy details. So, take a look at the current list of landing team members and their prior affiliations, and you'll see exactly where things are heading under a Trump administration. Trump voters hoping for anti-establishment, anti-insider politics are in for a rude awakening. It's party time for Corporate America. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

У экс-губернатора Хорошавина конфискуют подарки спецслужб

В перечень попали как дом, автомобиль и земельные участки его сына, так и предметы быта и подарки. — Такое ощущение, что в список включили всё, что попалось на глаза, так, например, в нём ручка, красная цена которой тысяча рублей, или ножи с гравировками, — рассказал Лайфу адвокат Иван Миронов. Если взглянуть на список, то там можно увидеть зажигалку Dupont (экземпляр лимитированной коллекции может стоить около 300 тысяч рублей. — Прим. ред.), два телефона Vertu, перьевые ручки из разных металлов, кольцо Dior. Кроме того, под судебные санкции попали и подарки, преподнесённые губернатору от представителей различных структур в честь памятных дней и праздников. Среди них ФСБ и ОМОН. В списке есть кортик в деревянных ножнах с отделкой из жёлтого металла с гравировкой "90 лет ФСБ", сабля в деревянных ножнах с гравировкой "От руководства и л/с ОМОН УМВД России по Сахалинской области", сабля "Губернатору Хорошавину от генерала Бранта", нож с гравировкой ФСБ России и фразой "Высшая цель — служение Отечеству".

Rand Corp. Blasts ‘Truth Decay’ – Wants Facts Determined by Appropriate Leaders

Via The Daily Bell Rand Corp. Blasts ‘Truth Decay’ – Wants Facts Determined by Appropriate Leaders ‘Truth Decay’ Makes Facts Subjective and Polarization More Extreme … Disagreements over policy have always existed—but disagreements over basic facts have not.  It’s a phenomenon that RAND CEO Michael Rich calls “truth decay.” –Rand Corporation blog Michael Rich, head of Rand Corporation has come up with a new phrase to describe “fake news,“ calling it “truth decay.” The Rand Corporation is a leading military-industrial think tank with thousands of employees including scientists from around the world and domestic and international offices.  These reports are part of a larger criticism Rich is making, one having to do with a news trend in America that involves citizens not only selecting their opinions, but also the “facts” that support them. It’s been on his mind since long before the election results brought the topic into sharp relief, he told the audience Friday night as part of a Politics Aside discussion called Erosion of Truth. “This is to me really a dangerous and unusual time in history. Because Americans not only feel entitled to their opinions—and rightly so—but many of them, a growing number of them, frankly, across the political spectrum also feel entitled to cherry pick facts to support their opinion, or even commission up new ‘facts’ if necessary,” Rich said. “…When everyone has their own facts, then nobody really has any facts at all.”   Truth decay is a threat to a research organization like RAND, whose very existence is based on facts and objectivity, he said, but more importantly it’s a threat to society. It pushes political polarization to even greater extremes and prevents policymakers from reaching consensus on solutions to the nation’s biggest challenges. As we can see, Rich is apparently worried that Americans inability to discern truth from fiction is making the US virtually ungovernable. He calls “polarization” the gravest threat facing America and his descriptive phrase, “truth decay” attempts to clarify the process. If citizens cannot agree on facts than society’s political and business leaders cannot create common sense compromises that will buttress America as a unique success among nations. Rich gave one example regarding the phase out chlorofluorocarbons — “organic compounds used as aerosol propellants, refrigerants, and solvents—that researchers said were depleting the ozone layer.” While many did not believe that aerosol propellants were a danger to survival, RAND was able to use “best available evidence” to reframe the debate based on probabilities rather than certainty. As a result, the Senate passed the treaty that banned CFCs. But today, thanks to the Internet, it is perfectly possible that RAND could not have presented “facts as probabilities” with such confidence because opponents would have used the Internet to gather opposing facts. In fact, a quick search of the Internet turns up the following from the website “American Thinker,” as follows, here: The global ban on CFCs was enacted based on a theory that continues to be challenged to this day. Chemists remain uncertain of the rate and extent of ozone depletion due to chlorine. In fact, the exact role of atmospheric CFCs remains uncertain. It appears that the primary catalyst of ozone depletion is atmospheric chlorine, and the most atmospheric chlorine by far is out-gassed from the oceans or emitted by volcanoes. Mankind’s contribution is miniscule (does this sound familiar?). Further, natural processes have by far the greatest influence on the ozone layer (e.g., solar influence). Additionally, this article points out that DuPont’s patent on CFCs was lapsing when the campaign against CFCs was initiated. The inference is that DuPont wanted CFCs banned so that it could create profit-making alternatives. This inference parallels (controversial) accusations that DuPont helped ban marijuana because a better procedure for hemp processing had just been developed at the time, one that would make hemp cloth competitive with DuPont products. The “decorticator” allowed for efficient extraction of hemp fiber from stalks. The CFC debate and resolution, can be seen as an antecedent to the global warming movement itself. If Rand has not had the capability at the time to assert “probabilities,” the global warming crusade might have foundered before it began. Spirited public debate is part of the political process, Rich concluded, but policy-making itself must be rooted in rigorous research and analysis of the facts. The trouble is that ample evidence has accrued during this Internet era that even the most perceptive politicians may occasionally fail to select the correct fact pattern. Regardless, Rich seems to believe this is a risk worth taking. He is quoted as saying that the lack of an ”agreed-upon common set of facts [is] a recipe for [governmental] gridlock.” Rich believes that the only solution is to return somehow to an environment where appropriate leaders are able to select accurate facts without fear of alternatives. Indeed, this may make for more efficient government. However, it is still unclear, despite Rich’s eloquence, whether promoting the primacy of governmental and industrial technocracy insures the validity of a given fact pattern. In fact, history seems to show, at least on occasion, that it does not. Conclusion: Suppression of alternative fact-patterns may lead to government efficiency, but not necessarily government accuracy. And basing large government programs on inaccurate facts can lead to difficulties that too-often can turn into disasters. A factual monopoly is not always the same as a credible one.

Тихо фигею от российской трампофрении

Что несут на российском телевидении по поводу Трампа - это нечто, пишет С.Л. Лопатников. Какие-со совершенно безумные интерпретации и абсолютно несостоятельные надежды.Квинтэссенция бреда - заявление крайне глупого человека - Сергея Станкевича, что мол в США "проиграла несменяемая элита и выборы показали, что народ что-то значит". - Я так и представляю себе, как Морганы и Дюпоны, Горы и Фарго спешат поделиться капиталами со всемогущим народом и превращаются в реднеков из-за победы Трампа. Ну что тут сказать?Во-первых, Трамп победил исключительно из-за путаной американской избирательной системы. По любой европейской системе выборов победила Клинтон.То есть никакого "большинства" за Трампом нет. Более того, Трам победил не из-за своей силы, а из-за невероятной слабости Клинтон. Он победил, потому что не успел сплясать голым при Луне с балалайкой и бутылкой водки в руках.Во-вторых, какая-то революция в США есть исключительно на экранах ТВ. CNN - не врет: "Десятки тысяч в 25 городах Америки вышли на улицы..." Чистая правда: даже если в 25 городах на улицы вышли 100,000, это всего по 4 тысячи на город. Именно столько вышло в пресловутом Портсмуте. Ничто... Можно сказать, полная тишина. Против Буша Мл. протестовало больше.В-третьих, с первых минут Трамп, что естественно, стал быстренько если не отказываться полностью, то критически снижать накал по основным программным заявлениям. Характерный пример - Обамакаир. Он уже заявил, что "по просьбе Обамы" оставит "существенные моменты" Обамакаир. Стена с Мексикой? - О да... Прямо сейчас: платить должна Мексика. Она непременно заплатит. Да...Он объявил что будет советоваться с Биллом Клинтоном. В очереди на должности стоят "большие друзья СССР и России" Ньют Грингич и Джон Болтон.Иными словами, никаких оснований для российской трампофрении нет.Возможно ли улучшение отношений с Россией? - Возможно. Но причиной для этого - если оно случится, - будет простой факт: усиление Китая настолько, что США захочет перетянуть Россию на свою сторону и превратить ее в анти-китайский форпост.Будет ли возврат индустрии в США? - Опять - возможно будет. Но опять тут нет заботы о "рабочих США". Причина опять в Китае, точнее в том маневре, который Китай начинает осуществлять: переключение товарных потоков с внешнего на свой колоссальный внутренний рынок. Китай, опираясь на экспорт, создал колоссальный потенциал для качественного повышения уровня жизни собственного населения. В ближайшем будущем- в перспективе 5-10 лет, внешние рынки Китаю окажутся просто не нужны: внутрикитайский рынок по своей емкости в заметно превышает американский и европейский. При этом Китай успешно осваивает главное - науку создания новых, передовых, технологий. И если это случится, США действительно окажутся в трудном положении: погнавшись за дешевой китайской рабочей силой, они действительно потеряли возможность производить ширпотреб. Так что, маневр Китая приведет к серьезному повышению цен на западных рынках и, соответственно к реальному снижению уровня жизни. Но хватит ли у Трампа сил против Эппл? - Не знаю, не знаю.
