GOP’S OBAMACARE PROBLEM -- Jared Kushner’s Chinese deal -- CAMPBELL BROWN to Facebook -- WEEKEND READS -- Former Defense Secretary Robert and Becky Gates celebrate 50 years

NYT’S FRONT-PAGE, FIVE-COLUMN BANNER HEADLINE -- “PUTIN LED SCHEME TO AID TRUMP, REPORT SAYS” http://nyti.ms/2iP3Tqr ... NYT story http://nyti.ms/2i1LrsK … WaPo http://wapo.st/2iNmqps … Read the report http://nyti.ms/2inFMOD-- QUITE THE SENTENCE: NYT’s Scott Shane: “For the three agencies that produced the report -- the C.I.A., the F.B.I. and the National Security Agency -- this is a heart-stopping moment: They have just told their new boss that he was elected with the vigorous, multifaceted help of an adversary, the thuggish autocrat who rules Russia.” http://nyti.ms/2i3IEmc TOP STORY -- “Jared Kushner, a Trump In-Law and Adviser, Chases a Chinese Deal,” by NYT’s Susanne Craig, Jo Becker and Jesse Drucker: “On the night of Nov. 16, a group of executives gathered in a private dining room of the restaurant La Chine at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in Midtown Manhattan. The table was laden with Chinese delicacies and $2,100 bottles of Château Lafite Rothschild. At one end sat Wu Xiaohui, the chairman of the Waldorf’s owner, Anbang Insurance Group, a Chinese financial behemoth with estimated assets of $285 billion and an ownership structure shrouded in mystery. Close by sat Jared Kushner, a major New York real estate investor whose father-in-law, Donald J. Trump, had just been elected president of the United States.“It was a mutually auspicious moment. Mr. Wu and Mr. Kushner -- who is married to Mr. Trump’s daughter Ivanka and is one of his closest advisers -- were nearing agreement on a joint venture in Manhattan: the redevelopment of 666 Fifth Avenue, the fading crown jewel of the Kushner family real-estate empire. Anbang, which has close ties to the Chinese state, has seen its aggressive efforts to buy up hotels in the United States slowed amid concerns raised by Obama administration officials who review foreign investments for national security risk.Now, according to two people with knowledge of the get-together, Mr. Wu toasted Mr. Trump and declared his desire to meet the president-elect, whose ascension, he was sure, would be good for global business.” http://nyti.ms/2jeMGWCGood Saturday morning and happy weekend. Here is TRUMP ON THE TWITTERS THIS A.M. -- @realDonaldTrump starting at 6:56 a.m.: “Intelligence stated very strongly there was absolutely no evidence that hacking affected the election results. Voting machines not touched!” … “Only reason the hacking of the poorly defended DNC is discussed is that the loss by the Dems was so big that they are totally embarrassed!” And then again, beginning at 10:02 a.m.: "Having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. Only 'stupid' people, or fools, would think that it is bad! We.....have enough problems around the world without yet another one. When I am President, Russia will respect us far more than they do now and....both countries will, perhaps, work together to solve some of the many great and pressing problems and issues of the WORLD!"-- MAYBE IT’S JUST US, BUT… We haven’t really seen a growing movement of people saying that Trump is an illegitimate president and should not be inaugurated.... ALSO: The intelligence agencies didn't weigh in on whether Russia impacted the outcome of the election. From the report: "We did not make an assessment of the impact that Russian activities had on the outcome of the 2016 election. The US Intelligence Community is charged with monitoring and assessing the intentions, capabilities, and actions of foreign actors; it does not analyze US political processes or US public opinion."INTERESTING POINT -- @geoffgarin: “Trump won Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin collectively by just 0.56% -- EVERYTHING affected the outcome of the election.”CAPITAL WEATHER GANG says D.C. will get a dusting to two inches of snow. http://wapo.st/2jeBB7RTHIS COULD BE A PROBLEM -- “GOP resistance grows to Obamacare repeal without replacement,” by Burgess Everett: “A growing number of Senate Republicans are resisting the idea of repealing Obamacare without a concrete replacement proposal, complicating GOP plans to move swiftly to undo the health care law. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) started the open, intra-party dissension this week when the libertarian-leaning senator urged Republicans to vote on a replacement plan at the same time they pass a repeal bill. He was followed a day later by hard-line conservative Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), then by the more centrist Sen. Bob Corker (Tenn.) … At least a half-dozen GOP senators have now expressed public or private concerns about the party’s current trajectory. Their worry: Republicans will be blamed for wreaking havoc on the health care system and causing people to lose their coverage without any assurance they have a superior - or any - plan of their own.” http://politi.co/2inoAc8-- @RandPaul: “I just spoke to @realDonaldTrump and he fully supports my plan to replace Obamacare the same day we repeal it. The time to act is now.”-- THIS IS BECOMING A THING and that’s an issue. Why? Because Republicans are nowhere close to being ready to replace the law. One of two things will need to happen: Republicans will have to wait to repeal the law until they come up with a replacement package, or someone will have to emerge with a replacement package now. There is peril in both approaches, obviously. If Republicans wait, they risk the ire of their constituents, who they have been telling they’ll repeal the law on day one. And if they rush a replacement, they hand Democrats a potent attack: Republicans rushed and rammed a health care plan down our throats quickly.OUT AND ABOUT -- SPOTTED at the big POTUS goodbye party last night at the White House where Queen Latifah performed: Robert DeNiro, Sheryl Crowe, David Geffen, Connie Milstein, Susan Sher, Judge Neil Cohen, Julia Louis Dreyfus and Brad Hall, Stevie Wonder, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, Stephanie Cutter. Bruce Springsteen was spotted at the Jefferson Hotel, just up 16th Street near the White House.ABOUT THAT WALL…. -- “Hill GOP skeptical over Trump plan to force Mexico payment of border wall,” by CNN’s Manu Raju: “In interviews with CNN, a number of Republicans suggested that Trump’s claim amounted to wishful thinking, saying they believed the billionaire businessman would ultimately backtrack on one of his central campaign promises. ‘I doubt that they're going to pay for it,’ said Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, the longest-serving Senate Republican, referring to Mexico. ‘There’s a lot he could do if he wanted to (force Mexico's hand). In all honesty, I don't think that’s going to happen.’ Rep. Mike Coffman, a Colorado Republican, added: ‘I never thought that would happen. I thought it was a gimmick.’ And some conservatives warned Trump would face a backlash if he failed to follow through. ‘I'm for building a wall,’ said Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama. ‘And I'm for Donald Trump keeping his promise to the American people that Mexico pay for it.’ He added that he would be ‘disappointed’ if Trump failed to deliver.” http://cnn.it/2iNarrS-- WaPo’s Mike DeBonis: “Hill Republicans embrace building of border wall, despite cost” http://wapo.st/2iNk6yp-- Former Mexican President Vicente Fox -- @VicenteFoxQue:“TRUMP, when will you understand that I am not paying for that f***en wall. Be clear with US tax payers. They will pay for it.”IT’S OFFICIAL … TRUMP NAMES COATS DNI -- Statement from Donald Trump: “I’m very confident that Senator Dan Coats is the right choice to serve as Director of National Intelligence. Dan has clearly demonstrated the deep subject matter expertise and sound judgment required to lead our intelligence community. If confirmed as Director of National Intelligence, he will provide unwavering leadership that the entire intelligence community can respect, and will spearhead my administration’s ceaseless vigilance against those who seek to do us harm.”JOSH ROGIN in WaPo, “Mattis clashing with Trump transition team over Pentagon staffing”: “With only two weeks left before Inauguration Day and days before Mattis’s Senate confirmation hearing, most major Pentagon civilian positions remain unfilled. Behind the scenes, Mattis has been rejecting large numbers of candidates offered by the transition team for several top posts, two sources close to the transition said. The dispute over personnel appointments is contributing to a tenser relationship between Mattis and the transition officials, which could set the stage for turf wars between the Pentagon and the White House in the coming Trump administration.” http:[email protected]: “Great transition at DoD. Reports to contrary completely false and come from sources who do not have any knowledge of our transition efforts”FT. LAUDERDALE UPDATE -- “Airport gunman sent panicked passengers fleeing for lives,” by AP’s David Fischer in Fort Lauderdale, Florida: “Without a word, the gunman moved through the baggage claim picking off travelers until his handgun ran out of ammunition, leaving five dead and eight wounded in Fort Lauderdale’s airport. Panicked witnesses ran out of the terminal and spilled onto the tarmac, baggage in hand. Others hid in bathroom stalls or crouched behind cars or anything else they could find as police and paramedics rushed in Friday to help the wounded and establish whether there were any other gunmen …“The gunman was identified as 26-year-old Esteban Santiago of Anchorage, Alaska, who served in Iraq with the National Guard but was demoted and discharged last year for unsatisfactory performance. His brother said he had been receiving psychological treatment recently. A law enforcement official told The Associated Press that Santiago had walked into the FBI office in Anchorage in November to say that the U.S. government was controlling his mind and making him watch Islamic State videos. Agents questioned an agitated and disjointed-sounding Santiago and then called police, who took him for a mental health evaluation.” http://apne.ws/2i1Mx7GUNDER THE HOOD -- “Trump’s Attack-Dog Strategy Has Limits,” by NYT’s Glenn Thrush: “As a political underdog and now as president-elect, Donald J. Trump has employed the same brutal but effective go-to move when he’s tweeted or talked himself into an impasse: Attack the attacker. That aggressiveness served him well in the presidential campaign, and allowed him to muscle through scandals and self-inflicted management mistakes that would have scuttled a lesser politician. But Mr. Trump’s postelection effort to minimize intelligence assessments about Russia’s actions came to an abrupt end Friday after a detailed classified briefing from the nation’s top intelligence officials at Trump Tower and the release of an unclassified report concluding that the Russian president, Vladimir V. Putin, had a ‘clear preference’ for Mr. Trump.” http://nyti.ms/2iP37tRSHOW ME THE MONEY -- “Trump insiders head for big K Street paydays,” by Isaac Arnsdorf and Ken Vogel: “A growing number of Donald Trump’s allies are rushing straight to K Street to cash in, despite the president-elect's pledge to restrain the industry, and their prized connections could draw huge paydays. Legitimate ties to Trump and his inner circle are exceedingly rare - and coveted - in a lobbying industry where many established GOP players kept their distance from Trump, or defiantly opposed him, during the bitter primary. Bona fide Trump insiders can expect offers of at least $450,000 a year downtown, according to a person familiar with efforts to recruit them as lobbyists.” http://politi.co/2iP1AE9FORMER DEFENSE SECRETARY ROBERT GATES AND HIS WIFE BECKY are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary today. Geoff Morrell emails: “When they started dating as graduate students at Indiana University, Bob told Becky that if she married him, ‘it would never be boring.’ Seems to have kept that promise!”PLAYBOOK INBOX – From President-elect Donald Trump with the subject line, “Win a trip to join me at the Inauguration”: “Contribute $3 BEFORE January 13 at 11:59pm to be automatically entered for a chance to win a trip to Washington, D.C., to join me for our Inauguration. The entire world will be watching that day. ... They will be watching a movement of free people reclaim their independence. They will be watching us unite as one people, saluting one American flag, ready to deliver real change for our country.” At the bottom of the email: “NO PURCHASE, PAYMENT, OR CONTRIBUTION NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN.” http://bit.ly/2i1OkgyTOP-ED – MARGARET CARLSON in the NYT, “The Life of a Disabled Child, From Taunts to Hate Crimes”: “I saw cruelty firsthand — and was guilty myself — as a child. Despite my protection, Jimmy was the last to be picked for a team, although he could swing a bat as badly as just about any other 6-year-old. ... Hitting another kid was punishable, but sidling up to Jimmy and subtly pinching him was not. ... It’s called politically correct and squishy liberal or nannyish to protect the weak among us — transgender children, minorities, the homeless, old people — but it’s really just human.” http://nyti.ms/2i1GMa5IN YOUR SPARE TIME -- “Here’s 520 Hours of Trump Interviews So You Can Fact-Check the President,” by Motherboard’s Jordan Pearson: http://bit.ly/2j1Y3lzON RUSSIA -- DAVID REMNICK on NewYorker.com, “Trump, Putin, and the Big Hack”: “Duma members cheered and applauded [after Trump won]. In the days to come ... Dmitri Kiselyov, the host of ‘News of the Week,’ a popular current-affairs show on state-controlled television, gloated over Trump’s victory and Barack Obama’s inability to prevent it. Obama, he said, was a ‘eunuch.’ Trump was an ‘alpha male’—and one who showed mercy to his vanquished rival. ‘Trump could have put the blonde in prison, as he’d threatened in the televised debates,’ Kiselyov said on his show. ‘On the other hand, it’s nothing new. Trump has left blond women satisfied all his life.’ Kiselyov further praised Trump because the concepts of democracy and human rights ‘are not in his lexicon.’ In India, Turkey, Europe, and now the United States, he declared, ‘the liberal idea is in ruins.’” http://bit.ly/2jmYSsrA NEW WASHINGTON -- “Obama and Clinton loyalists grapple with Trump recession,” by Sarah Wheaton: “The job market is about to get even more crowded for Washington Democrats, as thousands of Obama appointees join the hundreds of Clinton campaign staffers looking for employment. There’s rarely been less demand for their services. ... There are also the lobbying firms, trade associations and corporate government affairs offices that are pitching senior Obama aides’ resumes into the round file while scrambling to hire operatives with Republican connections. ... [F]or those who want to fight to keep President Barack Obama’s legacy from being erased, there aren’t a lot of places ready to pay them to do it. ‘It feels like there are just thousands of us trying to find a job, and there are no jobs,’ said Mira Patel, a longtime Clinton aide.” http://politi.co/2i1J5KwCABINET WATCH -- “New group boosts Pruitt nomination, adding to political backers,” by Alex Guillén and Esther Whieldon: “Energy companies and their executives have poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into political action committees run by or supporting President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the Environmental Protection Agency, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt. And now Pruitt is getting extra help from a new nonprofit that doesn't have to disclose its donors … The new group, Protecting America Now, warns that Pruitt’s confirmation ‘is not a certainty’ and says that millions of dollars are needed for advertising and social media campaigns to counter anti-Pruitt campaigning from ‘anti-business, environmental extremists,’ according to a flier obtained by POLITICO.“The flier assures donors that PAN’s 501(c)(4) status means individual and corporate donors can remain anonymous, and asks for contributions ranging from $25,000 to $500,000. Nonprofits registered as 501(c)(4)’s are not supposed to spend more than half their money on political activities. It is unclear precisely who is behind the campaign, but PAN’s activities come on the heels of separate efforts by oil, coal and other energy interests to funnel money into pro-Pruitt PACs in recent years. Legally, one of those PACs could continue to raise money even after Pruitt joins Trump's Cabinet.” http://politi.co/2i3MhIBFOR JERUSALEM -- “Meet Arnon Milchan, the Hollywood producer at the center of Netanyahu probe,” by L.A. Times’ Ryan Faughnder, Jeffrey Fleishman and Batsheva Sobelman: “His movie credits include classics such as ‘Pretty Woman’ and ‘JFK,’ as well as recent Oscar winners ‘The Revenant’ and ‘12 Years a Slave.’ But his back story reads more like an espionage thriller that has landed him at the center of a scandal shaking the Israeli government. The latest chapter in the strange saga of Israeli billionaire and veteran film producer Arnon Milchan arose this week over accusations that he -- in typical Hollywood mogul fashion -- gave thousands of dollars worth of cigars and champagne to Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife. Israeli police Thursday interrogated Netanyahu for the second time this week over accusations that he improperly accepted gifts from rich businessmen. Those individuals are said to include Milchan, 72, and others who gave gifts to the prime minister, according to Israeli media reports. Milchan, through a spokeswoman, declined to comment. Netanyahu’s lawyer dismissed the allegations after the three-hour questioning session, saying ‘any reasonable person knows that there is nothing remotely criminal involved when a close friend gives his friend a gift of cigars,’ according to Israeli new outlets.” http://lat.ms/2j1XJD0MEDIAWATCH – “Facebook Hires Campbell Brown to Lead News Partnerships Team,” by NYT’s Jim Rutenberg: “Facebook is turning to a former television news journalist to help smooth over its strained ties to the news media, which views it as both a vital partner and a potentially devastating opponent. It has hired Campbell Brown, a former NBC News correspondent and CNN prime-time host, to lead its news partnerships team, starting immediately. ... The addition of Ms. Brown comes as Facebook is struggling with its position as a content provider that does not produce its own content — that is, as a platform, not a media company.” http://nyti.ms/2i1KvYt ... Her Facebook post announcing the news http://bit.ly/2j07QZ3 -- “Donald Trump’s Condé Nast Meeting Draws Quiet Protest From Staff,” by WWD’s Alexandra Steigrad: “The off-the-record meeting on the 42nd floor drew what insiders described as a ‘small grassroots’ protest by some women at Condé, who chose to wear white instead of the fashion uniform of black. Wearing white is a nod to the Suffragette movement, and was also a veiled reference to the campaign of Trump’s presidential rival Hillary Clinton, who donned a white pantsuit when she clinched the Democratic nomination this summer.” http://bit.ly/2i454n9POLITICO PRO HIRES – CARRIE BUDOFF BROWN andMARTY KADY email the staff: “Adriel Bettelheim ... is joining as Health Editor here in DC. Adriel was managing editor for leadership and enterprise at CQ Roll Call, where he was also a podcast host. ... Lisa Zamosky, who had been helping us out short-term over the last few months, is joining as a part time Deputy Health Editor based in California. ... She was a health care business columnist for the Los Angeles Times, and worked as WebMD’s health insurance/reform expert.”-- A correction to our poll this week http://politi.co/2iPRrcICLICKER – “The nation’s cartoonists on the week in politics,” edited by Matt Wuerker -- 14 keepers http://politi.co/2ilb6NSGREAT WEEKEND READS, curated by Daniel Lippman:--“In Defense of Facts,” by William Deresiewicz in The Atlantic’s January/February issue: “A new history of the essay gets the genre all wrong, and in the process endorses a misleading idea of knowledge.” http://theatln.tc/2hYOl6j--“In their own words: The story of covering Election Night 2016,”by CNN’s Brian Stelter: “This is the story of election night 2016 in the words of more than 20 journalists who were in the field, in the newsrooms, at the anchor desks, and in the control rooms.” With cameos by Sopan Deb, Chris Wallace, Nate Cohn, John Dickerson, Annie Linskey and more http://cnnmon.ie/2hYSq5D--“College Football’s Financial Woes,” by Bloomberg’s Eben Novy-Williams in five articles: “A look at the pressures of rising costs, falling revenue and what, if anything, universities can do about it.” http://bloom.bg/2illp4B--“Shame on you,” by Firmin deBrabander in Aeon Magazine: “Unburdening ourselves online can feel radical and liberating. But is baring and sharing all as emancipatory as it seems?” http://bit.ly/2hYJNNC--“Literary Agents,” by Patrick Iber in TNR: “Rethinking the legacy of writers who worked with the CIA.” http://bit.ly/2iNlFum (h/t ALDaily.com)--“1999 Was The Last Time Everything Was Fine,” by BuzzFeed’s Doree Shafrir: “When I moved to New York City after college in 1999, it felt like anything was possible. But things were about to change more quickly than anyone knew.” http://bzfd.it/2hYJceH (h/t Longreads.com)--“Staring into the Soundless Dark: On the Trouble Lurking in Poets’ Bedrooms,” by Andrew Ka in The Millions: “Philip Larkin’s ‘Aubade’ [is a 1977 poem that] describes an experience all of us have at some point, that of waking up much earlier than we’d intended and, unable to get back to sleep, lying in a hazy torment in which all our life’s anxieties are amplified tenfold. The anxiety that hounds Larkin turns out to be the prospect of his own death.” http://bit.ly/2hZGksW(h/t TheBrowser.com)--“The Couple Who Saved China’s Ancient Architectural Treasures Before They Were Lost Forever,” by Tony Perrottet in the Jan. issue of Smithsonian: “As the nation teetered on the brink of war in the 1930s, two Western-educated thinkers struck out for the hinterlands to save their country’s riches.” http://bit.ly/2iRkrAG--“What Ever Happened to Joseph Randle?” by Dan Greene in Sports Illustrated: “Fifteen months ago Randle, not Ezekiel Elliott, was the Dallas back ripping off chunks of yards behind that awesome O-line. Then came a possible concussion, an array of off-field misdeeds and massive confusion about it all.” http://on.si.com/2iN8v0m (h/t Longform.org)--“The Vertical Farm,” by The New Yorker’s Ian Frazier: “Growing crops in the city, without soil or natural light.” http://bit.ly/2il9svP--“How ‘Elites’ Became One of the Nastiest Epithets in American Politics First Words,” by Beverly Gage in the NYT Magazine: “Our new president is a private-jet-setting billionaire Ivy League graduate, a real estate tycoon, a TV star and a son of inherited wealth. But he is no longer, by his own calculations, a member of the ‘elite.’” http://nyti.ms/2iZXHvr--“Micro-dosing: The Drug Habit Your Boss Is Gonna Love,” by Josh Dean in GQ: “What started as a body-tinkering, mind-hacking, supplement-taking productivity craze in Silicon Valley is now spreading to more respectable workplaces, maybe even to your office, where the guy down the hall might already be popping a new breed of brain-boosting pills or micro-dosing LSD—all in the name of self-improvement. Can you afford not to keep up?” http://bit.ly/2jkGOzl--“One Man’s Quest to Change the Way We Die,” by Jon Mooallem in the N.Y. Times Magazine: “How B.J. Miller, a doctor and triple amputee, used his own experience to pioneer a new model of palliative care at a small, quirky hospice in San Francisco.” http://nyti.ms/2hZHTY8--“Eichmann in Jerusalem,” by Hannah Arendt in the Feb. 16, 1963 issue of The New Yorker: “At no time, however, is there anything theatrical in the conduct of the judges ... Their walk is unstudied; their sober and intense attention, visibly stiffening under the impact of grief as they listen to the tales of suffering, is natural; their impatience with the prosecutor’s attempt to drag out the hearings is spontaneous and refreshing; their attitude toward the defense is perhaps a shade over-polite.” http://bit.ly/2iRhwrMPRESIDENT’S WEEK AHEAD -- “On Monday, the President will attend meetings at the White House. On Tuesday, the President will travel to Chicago, Illinois to deliver his farewell address to the American people, where he will thank his supporters, celebrate the ways we have changed this country for the better these past eight years, and offer some thoughts on where we all go from here. The First Lady, the Vice President and Dr. Biden will also attend.

This 'Nasty' T-Shirt Has Raised Over $100,000 For Planned Parenthood

: @itsraissaferrari A photo posted by Google Ghost (@googleghostpress) on Nov 17, 2016 at 8:23am PST Nasty women look damn good when we start the revolution.  After Donald Trump muttered “nasty woman” at Hillary Clinton during the third presidential debate, the phrase quickly became a rallying cry for feminists and Clinton supporters across the country. A website titled nastywomengetshitdone.com was created that redirected to Hillary Clinton’s official website; Etsy stores created “nasty woman” merchandise; people proudly tweeted why they, too, are nasty women.  Within hours of that final debate, clothing store Google Ghost created a simple white t-shirt emblazoned with the words “NASTY WOMAN” in a pink heart, with 50 percent of the profits going directly to Planned Parenthood.  Two months later, Google Ghost has raised over $100,000 for Planned Parenthood. “I didn’t think I’d sell very many, maybe four or five,” Amanda, the shirt’s creator, told The Cut. “But then five turned into 500, and that turned into thousands, almost overnight. What better way to say ‘fuck Trump,’ right?!?!” Google Ghost celebrated the charitable milestone with a post on their Instagram page, writing: “We’re still taking orders and the donations will continue! THANK YOU to everyone who’s been a part of this crazy whirlwind.”  We donated $100,165 to Planned Parenthood!!!! We're still taking orders and the donations will continue! THANK YOU to everyone who's been a part of this crazy whirlwind. We just launched a new 18-month planner on the site...check it out! A photo posted by Google Ghost (@googleghostpress) on Dec 20, 2016 at 12:14pm PST Google Ghost offers the “nasty woman” design on all types of swag, including a mug, a tote bag, a sweatshirt and a planner. The shirt also has some celebrity fans including Will Ferrell, Katy Perry and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.  Scroll below to see some famous and non-famous nasty women donning Google Ghost’s t-shirt.  : @teadoan A photo posted by Google Ghost (@googleghostpress) on Dec 5, 2016 at 9:02am PST : @eve_zook A photo posted by Google Ghost (@googleghostpress) on Nov 28, 2016 at 4:56am PST tap it if you're nasty A photo posted by KATY PERRY (@katyperry) on Oct 23, 2016 at 12:13am PDT : @camomilletea A photo posted by Google Ghost (@googleghostpress) on Nov 19, 2016 at 8:15am PST : @alycat0924 A photo posted by Google Ghost (@googleghostpress) on Nov 26, 2016 at 12:19pm PST Big news coming soon!

It Could Be Decades Before We Say 'Madam President'

Are you surprised that America elected a black president before a female president? Given the history of servitude, institutional racism and implicit bias that blacks have experienced, you might think that the odds tilt heavily in favor of women when it comes to electing a president.  But you’d be wrong. Black men were granted the right to vote decades before women. In 1870, the 15th Amendment granted citizens the right to vote regardless of their “race, color, or previous condition of servitude.” In 1920, the 19th Amendment finally granted voting rights not just to men but to all citizens. Black citizens had 50 years to figure out our political system before women could even vote. But time alone doesn’t completely explain the advantage blacks have over women on Election Day. Social science tells us that the traits of a strong leader like assertiveness, dominance and confidence are more likely to be masculine traits than feminine traits. In fact, our research has found that the stereotype of blacks is more masculine than feminine. These findings suggest an important point: a black man, more than a woman, is perceived as having the necessary traits to be an effective president. Finally, let’s not forget American culture. In movies and on TV, black men have more often served as president than women: From 1988 to 2008, TV and movies portrayed six black male presidents vs. four white female presidents. Interestingly, the black presidents all were legitimately elected, from Morgan Freeman in Deep Impact to Dennis Haysbert in 24. In contrast, three of the female presidents came to power as unelected replacements – Glenn Close in Air Force One, Geena Davis in Commander in Chief and Patricia Wettig in Prison Break – and all were sworn into office after the elected president was incapacitated. Even recently, Julia Louis-Dreyfus on Veep became the president only after the elected POTUS resigned. Not only did she later lose her election, but the new female president on Veepwasn’t popularly elected either! Andrea Savage’s character was selected by the Senate and not by the will of the people; thus, neither female president on Veep was elected.  And, as we grapple with issues of sexism and racism in entertainment, let’s not overlook black women. Hollywood has all but forgotten black women. In fact, only one black female president–Oprah Winfrey–was ever mentioned in a movie or on television, and she never even appeared on screen. Now, our analysis is not the complete story. Clearly, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton cannot be reduced to their race or gender. Their individual characteristics, from their oratorical style to their political histories, have played major roles in their respective outcomes. Yet, when it comes to modern presidential politics, it appears that sexism trumps racism. So when will a woman be elected president? We can’t say exactly, but we do see two key steps that need to take place to pave the way for a female president. First, it is important to recognize a broader set of traits that define what a successful president is – traits that extend beyond ones traditionally associated as masculine. Second, American audiences need to see legitimately elected and successful female presidents portrayed in our media. The most basic right of a citizen in a democracy is the right to vote. But before we cast a single vote, voters should reassess their conceptions about the Office of the President. If we succeed in reconsidering stereotypes and broaden the depiction of the presidency in popular culture, we may be saying “Madam President” much sooner than later.  Adam Galinsky is the Chair of Management Division and the Vikram S.

Как Сталин добирался на Тегеранскую конференцию

Источник: ИА Regnum С 28 ноября по 1 декабря 1943 года в столице Ирана Тегеране руководители СССР, США и Великобритании — Сталин, Рузвельт и Черчилль обсуждали положение на фронтах Второй мировой войны. Об этой конференции написано много, снят знаменитый фильм «Тегеран-43», есть воспоминания советских разведчиков. Тем не менее осталось ещё множество нераскрытых загадочных сюжетов. Об одном из них — как и какими путями лидеры СССР, Англии и США добирались до Тегерана сегодня речь. Карта Ирана. Тегеран. Граница 1941—1943 Дороги, которые вели союзников из Москвы, Вашингтона и Лондона в Тегеран, были полны трудностей и опасностей. Сталин, Черчилль и Рузвельт обменялись 32 посланиями, прежде чем определили сроки и место встречи. Сталин предлагал провести конференцию на территории СССР — на юге, в Астрахани, либо на севере, в Архангельске. Рузвельт же считал, что территория СССР для переговоров не подходит, и предлагал собраться на Аляске. Варианты Багдада и Каира тоже были отклонены. Черчилль говорил о Скапа-Флоу на Оркнейских островах Англии. В конце концов, выбрали Тегеран. Причины понятны. Территория этой страны контролировалась советскими, английскими и частично американскими войсками. Части Красной Армии и британский военный контингент вошли в Иран в конце 1941 года. Американские войска появились там в конце 1942 года. Но обстановка в Иране оставалась сложной. После отречения и отъезда из Ирана Реза-хана на престол был возведен его старший сын Мохаммед-Реза. Официальные представители Германии и ее союзников, а также большинство их агентов были интернированы и высланы. Тем не менее в начале сентября 1943 года в Тегеран были заброшены две группы немецких диверсантов: одна в район, где проживали кашкайские племена, другая — через границу Турции под видом торговцев чаем. Связано это было с тем, что сведения о планируемой в Тегеране встрече Сталина, Черчилля и Рузвельта стали все же известны германской армейской разведке. Историки считают, что «утечка» произошла от законспирированного агента Абвера «Цицерона» в британском посольстве. На основе этой информации в штабе адмирала Канариса был разработан план операции «Длинный прыжок», направленной на ликвидацию лидеров «большой тройки».Так что опасности для Сталина, Рузвельта и Черчилля были реальными. Американский линкор «Айова» 13 ноября 1943 года линкор «Айова», эскортируемый эсминцами, на борту которого находился президент Рузвельт, вышел в Атлантический океан, взяв курс к берегам Африки и утром 20 ноября пришвартовался в алжирском порту Оран. 22 ноября самолет Рузвельта приземлился на каирском аэродроме английских ВВС. Черчилль отправился в путешествие из Плимута на корабле «Ринаун», который утром 21 ноября бросил якорь в Александрии. В Каире состоялись двусторонние англо-американские переговоры, на которых была проведена «сверка часов» перед встречей со Сталиным в Тегеране. 27 ноября Рузвельт прибыл на каирский аэродром. В 7 часов утра президентский самолет «Священная корова» поднялся в воздух и после почти семичасового беспосадочного полета приземлился на тегеранском аэродроме. Американская служба безопасности обеспечила строжайшую секретность — почти никто не встречал президента, не было выстроено почетного караула. Без эскорта бронемашин Рузвельт проследовал в миссию США в Иране, став гостем американского посланника Луиса Дрейфуса. Черчилль направился из Каира в Тегеран также на рассвете 27 ноября, но своим путем. В Тегеране его встретили с большей помпой и меньшей степенью безопасности. Президент Франклин Рузвельт на C-54 Skymaster (самолёт с названием «Священная корова») Особые мероприятия по обеспечению безопасности приезда Иосифа Сталина в Тегеран предпринимала и Москва. В первую очередь в любой секретной переписке было строжайше запрещено употреблять слово «Тегеран». 12 октября 1943 года в район Астары в Азербайджан прибыл специальный полк НКВД. Задача, для выполнения которой эта часть была специально создана, состояла в обеспечении безопасности Тегеранской конференции. Если подходить к этому вопросу с формальной точки зрения, то справка, подготовленная одной из российских спецслужб о маршруте Сталина из Москвы в Тегеран и опубликованная в одном из выпусков газеты «Комсомольская правда», не вызывает острых вопросов. Тем более что сведения, приведенные в этом материале, не повергаются сомнениям со стороны большинства современных историков.Но. Литерный поезд № 501 Вечером 22 ноября 1943 года Иосиф Сталин, Вячеслав Молотов и Клим Ворошилов отбыли специальным поездом из Москвы в Баку. Литерный поезд № 501 шел по маршруту Москва — Сталинград — Баку. Сталин располагался в отдельном бронированном вагоне, весившем более 80 тонн. В отдельном вагоне ехал и Берия, ответственные работники Наркомата иностранных дел и Генерального штаба. По пути следования не обошлось без «приключений». На одном из участков пути поезд чуть было не попал под налет германских бомбардировщиков. Были и технические неполадки. Как следует из донесений, это происходило «из-за выделения неисправных паровозов, расплавления подшипников, горения буксов, выявления лопнувших рельсов…». Поездная бригада еле-еле укладывалась в график. 26 ноября литерный поезд № 501 прибыл на станцию Килязи, что в 85 километрах от Баку. Литерный поезд № 501 Недавно бакинский историк Эльчин Гасанов разыскал в местных архивах отчетную справку, составленную, судя по всему, одним из азербайджанских партийных работников. В ней утверждается, что Сталин все же прибыл на главный железнодорожный вокзал Баку «Сабунчи», где его встретил тогдашний Первый Секретарь Азербайджана, Мир-Джафар Багиров. Они уселись в служебную машину, и Сталин попросил прокатиться по улицам Баку, так как он тут был в последний раз в 1920 году. Спустя несколько часов, как утверждает историк Эльчин Гасанов, Сталин улетел в Тегеран. Теперь попытаемся сопоставить приведенную информацию с той, которая содержится в мемуарах Александра Евгеньевича Голованова, командующего Дальней авиацией. «В Баку было четыре часа утра, когда мне позвонил Сергей Круглов, начальник оперативного управления НКВД, и сообщил, что в пять часов я должен быть на вокзале, — пишет Голованов. — Не успел поезд ещё остановиться, как я услышал свою фамилию и направился к вагону, откуда меня позвали. Прошел в салон, где, кроме Сталина, были Ворошилов, Молотов и Берия. Поздоровавшись, Сталин спросил, все ли в порядке. Ответив утвердительно, я доложил, что погода, как говорится, по заказу. Кругом тихо, на всем маршруте безоблачно, болтанка отсутствует. Выслушав меня, Сталин сказал, что имеется в запасе день. В Тегеране нужно быть завтра, и поэтому он предлагает мне слетать туда и вечером вернуться обратно, а завтра вместе полетим в Тегеран. Решение было принято, и некоторое время спустя все отправились на аэродром, где уже ждали самолеты. Машины поднялись в воздух, по-моему, часов в восемь утра. Самолеты дошли до Тегерана отлично». Александр Евгеньевич Голованов Но Александр Голованов не ставит «точку». В момент, когда вышли в свет его мемуары, аналогичные воспоминания были уже опубликованы маршалом С.М. Штеменко. В этой связи Александр Голованов счел необходимым сделать следующую ремарку: «Некоторые авторы мемуаров делают попытку описать полет Сталина в Тегеран по-своему, как будто они присутствовали при этом или, по крайней мере, знали, как шла подготовка к полету и его организация. Так, С.М. Штеменко в своей первой книге «Генеральный штаб в годы войны» пишет: «…К вечеру приехали в Баку. Здесь все, кроме меня, сели по машинам и куда-то уехали. Я ночевал в поезде. В 7 часов утра за мной заехали, и мы отправились на аэродром. На летном поле стояло несколько самолетов Си-47. У одного из них прогуливался командующий ВВС А.А. Новиков и командующий Авиацией дальнего действия А.Е. Голованов. У другого самолета я заметил знакомого мне летчика В.Г. Грачева. В 8 часов на аэродром прибыл И.В. Сталин. Новиков доложил ему, что для немедленного вылета подготовлены два самолета: один из них поведет генерал-полковник Голованов, другой — полковник Грачев. Через полчаса пойдут ещё две машины с группой сотрудников Наркоминдела. А.А. Новиков пригласил Верховного Главнокомандующего в самолет Голованова. Тот сначала, казалось, принял это приглашение, но, сделав несколько шагов, вдруг остановился. Маршал авиации Александр Новиков на командном пункте. 1943 — Генерал-полковники редко водят самолеты, — сказал Сталин, — мы лучше полетим с полковником. И повернул в сторону Грачева. Молотов и Ворошилов последовали за ним. — Штеменко тоже полетит с нами, в пути доложит обстановку, — сказал Сталин, уже поднимаясь по трапу. «Нужно сказать, что написанное С.М. Штеменко не соответствует действительности, — уточняет Голованов. — Во-первых, поезд прибыл в Баку ранним утром, а не накануне вечером; во-вторых, А.А. Новиков не мог прогуливаться с А. Е. Головановым около самолета просто потому, что Новикова там не было, и о полете Сталина в Тегеран он ничего не знал. Если бы Новиков действительно был на аэродроме, он не мог докладывать Верховному о генерал-полковнике Голованове, ибо последний имел воинское звание маршала; в-третьих, ни с кем никакого разговора на аэродроме Сталин не вел, ибо и вести-то его было незачем, так как все вопросы полета были решены в вагоне. Свидетельствую все это, как лицо, несшее прямую ответственность как за всю организацию, так и за сам полет в Тегеран и обратно». Но перед нами лежат ещё одни «Воспоминания», написанные сотрудником Госбезопасности Александром Яшиным: «Сталин и его свита сразу же проследовали на аэродром, где их уже ждали шесть американских самолетов «Дуглас» С-47. Как в Тегеран, так и обратно вся делегация летела в одном самолете, что, на мой взгляд, было очень опасно. За штурвалом первого самолета был командующий авиацией дальнего действия маршал Александр Голованов, а второго — личный пилот Сталина полковник Валентин Грачев. Когда руководители СССР подходили к первому самолету, у него чихнул мотор. А это, как известно, плохая примета. Сталин развернулся, и все пошли во второй самолет — к Грачеву. Полет от Баку до Тегерана продолжался 50 минут. Около полудня 26 ноября «Дуглас» со Сталиным на борту благополучно приземлился в Тегеране». С-47 Теперь наступает очередь процитировать ещё одни «воспоминания» якобы свидетеля событий Юрия Тихонова, которого разыскали липецкие журналисты: «Утром, в четыре часа, Сталин прибыл на станцию Килязи, в 85 километрах от Баку. Следующая остановка — военный аэродром «Бина», откуда советская делегация должна была улететь в Иран. Вождю предоставили один из шести «дугласов» С-47. Доподлинно известно, что командиром экипажа был испанец, учившийся в Липецком авиацентре». Но окончательно запутывает ситуацию сын Лаврентия Берии Серго. Он пишет, правда, со ссылкой на рассказ упомянутого уже Сергея Штеменко, в то время начальника Оперативного управления Генерального штаба: «Литерный шел на Сталинград, затем проехали Кизляр, Махачкалу. О станции назначения Сергей Матвеевич не имел ни малейшего представления. Лишь однажды, пригласив Штеменко после очередного доклада о положении на фронтах пообедать, Сталин заговорил со своими спутниками о какой-то конференции, в которой должны были участвовать Рузвельт и Черчилль. Обедали часа полтора, и все это время разговор шел лишь о предстоящей встрече. По словам генерала Штеменко, в Баку прибыли вечером. Утром на летном поле стояло несколько самолетов Си-47. У одного из них прогуливались командующий ВВС, будущий Главный маршал авиации и дважды Герой Советского Союза Александр Александрович Новиков, он же заместитель наркома обороны по авиации, и командующий авиацией дальнего действия, тоже будущий Главный маршал авиации, Александр Евгеньевич Голованов. У другого самолета генерал Штеменко увидел знакомого летчика В.Г. Грачева. Когда в восемь утра на аэродром приехал Сталин, Новиков доложил, что к полету готовы два самолета. Первый поведет генерал-полковник Голованов, второй — полковник Грачев. Верховному предложили лететь с Головановым». «Вспоминая об этом случае, генерал армии Штеменко упустил одну деталь — полковник В.Г. Грачев пилотировал самолет члена ГКО Лаврентия Павловича Берия, — уточняет далее Серго. — Вместе они и прибыли в Тегеран — Сталин, Молотов, Ворошилов и мой отец. Этим же самолетом полетел и генерал Штеменко, доложив в воздухе руководителям страны обстановку, сложившуюся на фронтах за минувшие сутки. В самолете, который вел генерал-полковник Голованов, летели ответственные сотрудники Наркомата иностранных дел и охрана. Вслед за этими машинами курс на Тегеран взяли ещё несколько самолетов. После трехчасового полета полковник Грачев повел самолет на посадку». Вид с места летчика С-47 Наконец, нельзя обойти вниманием ещё один документ, который оказался в нашем распоряжении. Он принадлежит участнику Великой Отечественной войны Василию Свиридову — одному из первых в Новороссийске, кого наградили памятным орденом «Маршал Жуков — защитник России». «Сталин прибыл в Тегеран на день раньше открытия конференции, — утверждает Свиридов. — Конечно, в свое время это была государственная тайна. Сталин прилетел в Тегеран на обыкновенном самолете — «кукурузнике» вместе с генералом Штеменко. Я по долгу службы также знал, что из Москвы Сталин добрался на санитарном самолете до Красноводска, потом на буксирном пароме по Каспию до иранского порта, а оттуда уж в Тегеран». То есть по этой версии Сталина вообще не было в Баку, поскольку до Красноводска можно на самолете добраться и из Сталинграда, затем перелететь в иранский портовый город Энзели, откуда на машине до Тегерана километров 100−150. Сопоставляя приведенные факты, мы не ставим под сомнение свидетельские «показания» авторитетных участников событий. Они часто сходятся в деталях, но имеют серьезные принципиальные различия, при которых историку практически невозможно свести концы с концами. Например, как оценивать воспоминания личного переводчика Сталина Валентина Бережкова, которыми зачитывалась чуть ли не вся страна: «В Москве уже все было готово к отъезду в Тегеран на конференцию трех держав. Возглавляли делегацию Сталин, Молотов, Ворошилов (позже, в Тегеране, к ним подключился Берия). Они в бронированном поезде ехали через Баку в Иран, я же, по условиям, должен был лететь на самолете». По этой версии, Берия следовал в Тегеран своим особым маршрутом и присоединился к советской делегации только в Иране. Да и вообще, выходит, что Сталин прибыл в Тегеран на своем литерном поезде № 501, а не самолетом, как утверждают «очевидцы». Как после приведенных фактов следует оценивать целые сентенции Валентина Бережкова, на которые добросовестно ссылаются сейчас многие историки. Например, одно из них: «Мой самолет задержался в пути, и я ворвался в здание посольства буквально за 15 минут до встречи» большой тройки». Извинился перед Сталиным. Он был в маршальской форме, но, как и всегда, неряшлив: в мятых брюках и в своих неизменных кавказских мягких сапогах. Курил не трубку (врачи ему запретили), а папиросы «Герцеговина Флор». Сталин степенно прохаживался по комнате. Осень стояла здесь восхитительная: тепло, все цветет, в окна льется солнечный свет. Сталин говорит: «Товарищ Бережков, я буду сидеть у окна, вы — на этом месте (он показал на диван). Рузвельт же в коляске — напротив меня… Я понял: он хочет сидеть спиной к свету. Сталин не хотел, чтобы первое впечатление от оспы на его лице были неприятно президенту… Рузвельта в комнату привез слуга-филиппинец. Лидеры двух сверхдержав встречались впервые, но атмосфера во время переговоров была доверительной, непринужденной, не было предварительного изучения друг друга». Сталин и Рузвельт Советская делегация покинула Тегеран во второй половине дня 2 декабря. 1943 года. Первыми с тегеранского аэродрома, который усиленно охранялся специально введенным в иранскую столицу полком, в воздух поднялись два двухмоторных самолета. В одном из них был И.В. Сталин, во втором — группа экспертов Генерального штаба. Через некоторое время в Тегеран по военной радиосвязи поступило сообщение о том, что самолеты приземлились в Баку. Без приключений вернулись домой Рузвельт и Черчилль. В письме Рузвельту 6 декабря 1943 года Сталин, отмечая успех Тегеранской конференции и особое значение её решений, писал: «Надеюсь, что общий враг наших народов — гитлеровская Германия — скоро это почувствует».7 декабря 1943 года в советской печати было опубликовано сообщение о встрече руководителей СССР, США и Великобритании в Тегеране, напечатаны тексты Декларации и других документов, принятых в ходе конференции. В этот день в СССР впервые стало известно о том, что Сталин выезжал из Москвы и в течение четырех дней участвовал в переговорах в Тегеране с руководителями США и Великобритании.

SCOOP: PENCE will appear with PAUL RYAN Saturday -- Could Election Night be a snore? -- JAY Z, BEYONCE AND...LEBRON? for Clinton -- B’DAYS: Ben Smith, Jeremy Bernard

SCOOP -- MIKE PENCE will appear in Wisconsin with Speaker Paul Ryan and Sen. Ron Johnson Saturday morning, according to a source involved in the planning. The event -- at Field Park in Mukwonago -- will be part of Johnson’s bus tour. Gov. Scott Walker and Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner will also appear. RYAN’s relationship with the Trump campaign is complicated, to say the least. Ryan has been openly critical of Donald Trump, and has said he’s plainly focused on re-electing a House majority, and would do nothing to help the top of the ticket. Pence and Ryan have been friends for 15 years -- even if Pence won’t endorse the Wisconsin Republican for another term as speaker. http://politi.co/2euKquY Listen to Playbook in 90 Seconds http://bit.ly/2flKjRt ... Subscribe on iTunes: http://apple.co/2f1856A BUZZ -- TUESDAY: AN EARLY NIGHT? -- Here’s one theory bouncing around the reporter and political campaign consultant world: Despite the recent tightening of the race, election night could be super boring. If Nevada political guru Jon Ralston (@RalstonReports) is right -- and he usually is -- Hillary Clinton has all but won that state. If she takes Nevada, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Virginia -- all states where she seems to have a lead, or is building one through early voting -- Donald Trump can win Florida, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, Colorado and New Hampshire and still lose. PLUS, if you believe Steve Schale (@steveschale), one of the top Democratic consultants in Florida, he says Democrats are doing well: They have built a 161,000 vote margin in Broward County, and 170,000 more Hispanics voted early as of yesterday than voted early in the entire 2012 election. Schale says 70 percent of the Florida vote will be in by Sunday. KEY LINE from Alex Burns and JMart’s A1 story: “Robby Mook, told donors on a conference call Thursday that the campaign expected to win Florida and North Carolina in large part because of Hispanic turnout. In Nevada, a third diverse battleground state, Mr. Mook said he no longer saw a path for Mr. Trump to win there.”HEY, DON’T SHOOT THE MESSENGER! This is what operatives and lawmakers in both parties are telling us. (AND/BUT: What if everyone’s wrong? http://politi.co/2eGg1Hx)**SUBSCRIBE to Playbook: http://politi.co/1M75UbXGood Friday morning. 4. DAYS. LEFT. (h/t Ashley Parker)HAPPENING TODAY -- “Beyoncé to campaign for Hillary Clinton: source,” by CBS News’ Jacqueline Alemany: “Beyoncé will join Jay Z on Friday in Ohio at a get-out-the-vote concert for Hillary Clinton, a source who overheard the news told CBS News. Clinton will be joined by the music superstars at a rally at Cleveland State University heading into the final weekend before Election Day.” http://cbsn.ws/2euhKSK -- JUST SAYING… There’s another high-profile Clinton supporter in Cleveland. He just won an NBA championship last year. He’s not playing a game tonight -- the Cavs play in Philadelphia tomorrow. Will Lebron make an appearance? We bet yes. But, you know, it’s … not a slam dunk.AND THEN THERE IS THIS -- CBS NEWS: “FBI finds emails related to Hillary Clinton’s State Department tenure”: “The FBI has found emails related to Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state on the laptop belonging to the estranged husband of Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner, according to a U.S. official. These emails, CBS News’ Andres Triay reports, are not duplicates of emails found on Secretary Clinton’s private server. At this point, however, it remains to be seen whether these emails are significant to the FBI’s investigation into Clinton. It is also not known how many relevant emails there are.” http://cbsn.ws/2fKoXQa STATE OF THE RACE -- “Early voting by Latinos may help Clinton in several states,” by WaPo’s John Wagner, Anne Gearan and Jose DelReal: “Even as the electoral map shows new signs of volatility, a surge in early voting by Latinos is bolstering Hillary Clinton’s prospects in battleground states including Arizona, Florida and Nevada in the closing days of a tightened race against Donald Trump. Fresh election data suggest that the Democratic nominee appears to be benefiting from upticks in participation by Latinos, who historically vote in lower numbers than the electorate overall. The trend, say advocates seeking to expand the Hispanic vote, is largely motivated by distaste for Trump, who has proposed hardline immigration policies and stirred emotions from the outset of his campaign with a series of controversial statements about Mexicans and other Latinos …“According to the data firm Catalist, one of the largest increases of early voting by Latinos is taking place in Arizona, a traditionally Republican state that Clinton visited for the first time during the general election on Wednesday. Her running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, delivered a speech there in Thursday entirely in Spanish. Significant upticks are also taking place in Nevada and Florida, two other states where a burgeoning Hispanic vote could prove key in determining the outcome.” http://wapo.st/2eG1sUc--NYT A1, “Clinton Pushes Minority Turnout as Trump Tries to Rally His Base,” by Alex Burns and Jonathan Martin: “In an effort to blunt any late momentum for Mr. Trump, Mrs. Clinton is moving to reinforce her position among crucial constituencies, including black communities in North Carolina and Florida, and Hispanic strongholds in Nevada and Arizona, to lock down the 270 electoral votes needed to win …“Guided by data on millions of voters around the country, the Clinton campaign has deployed her top surrogates to areas where she needs a boost: Mr. Obama fired up voters on her behalf in Jacksonville, Fla., and Miami, cities where black voters have yet to turn out in sizable numbers. Seldom have Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton’s divergent approaches to electioneering been on more vivid display … Seeking to break through on an electoral map that favors Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Trump has tested his strength in unconventional places — one day in tossup states, another in Democratic-leaning states like Michigan and New Mexico, still another in states that Mrs. Clinton seemed to have locked up long ago, like Virginia and Colorado.“Mrs. Clinton’s extensive field operation gives her a big advantage over Mr. Trump, whose campaign employs a relatively meager staff and has outsourced most get-out-the-vote activities to the [RNC]. The committee has circulated daily emails to donors and reporters documenting its turnout activities in the field …“In a possible blow to Mr. Trump, two Republican senators up for re-election, Rob Portman of Ohio and Patrick J. Toomey of Pennsylvania, have directed their field organizations to try to turn out groups of voters, like suburban women and college-educated moderates, who are largely hostile to Mr. Trump. In Florida, Senator Marco Rubio’s campaign has taken a similar approach to Hispanic voters, according to several Republicans briefed on the senator’s plans, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss closely guarded field operations.” http://nyti.ms/2fBp15A HOT POLLS -- ABC/WaPo TRACKING -- Clinton 47, Trump 44 http://abcn.ws/2fj3Une ...

But there is only one Haim Saban. Known for two decades to be one of the Clintons’ top-tier supporters and a close personal friend, the billionaire chairman and part owner of Univision who brought Power Rangers to the United States has emerged in 2016 as all of the above, according to the clear picture painted by the hacked emails of campaign chairman John Podesta published by WikiLeaks in recent weeks.” http://politi.co/2flvw9l-- “Soros spends $2 million to defeat Arpaio: The spending is part of Soros’ nationwide push on criminal justice and immigration reform,” by Scott Bland: http://politi.co/2flzvmkOBAMA ALUMNI -- Reggie Love, Jeremy Bird, Buffy Wicks, Anne Fillipic, Sara El Amine, John Carson, Ronnie Cho and more start in a #DoItForObama video, encouraging people to get out and help Hillary Clinton.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus: 'Voting For Hillary Isn't Enough'

Julia Louis-Dreyfus recently sat down to film a 2016 election PSA with the climate change advocacy group NextGen Climate. Through most of the one-minute-20-second video, which was released on Sunday, Louis-Dreyfus reiterates the standard 2016 Democratic Party talking points, using her role as Selina Meyer on “Veep” as fodder along the way.   “I play a bombastic, woman-hating, narcissistic politician on my show, and it’s really super-fun to watch because, let’s face it, I’m extraordinarily talented,” she jokes. “But it’s not a reality that any of us really wants.” You already know what comes next. “[Republican presidential nominee] Donald Trump talks a lot about building a wall, his pervy love of Putin, and fake colleges he can bankrupt for profit,” Louis-Dreyfus notes. “One thing he doesn’t talk much about is climate change, and that’s because he doesn’t believe in it — and because it doesn’t have a grabbable p***y.” Louis-Dreyfus then turns to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who, she notes, believes in climate change and “understands its disastrous consequences.” Up until this point in the PSA, everything Louis-Dreyfus says is some form of a message you’ve no doubt heard before. Then, she says something that should make your ears perk up. “But voting for Hillary isn’t enough,” she says. “Senate Republicans have already vowed to obstruct her at every turn. It’s a congressional cock blockade.” Less attention has been paid to the seats in Congress that are on the table come Nov. 8. As Louis-Dreyfus correctly notes, if you’re voting for Clinton, then Democrats’ opportunity to regain control of the Senate should mean just as much to you, if not more, as who wins the White House. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

The Executive Producer Of 'Veep' Says Trump Is Ruining Comedy, Too

Over the course of the 2016 election, the typical absurdity of the political world has been outdone by that of Donald Trump, a man who didn’t just throw the political handbook into the trash during his presidential run, but also doused it in lighter fluid, lit it aflame and maniacally laughed as the entire surrounding block burned down to the ground.  And, while the recklessness with which Trump has trampled through the political landscape has made the jobs of late-night TV writers much easier over the last year, it has made the lives of people like David Mandel more difficult. Mandel, who took over the executive producing reins of “Veep” during Season 5, lamented what Trump has done to political comedy in an interview with the Los Angeles Times published on Wednesday. “[Trump] is ruining comedy,” Mandel said.   The beauty of “Veep,” the Emmy Award –winning, Julia Louis-Dreyfus –led HBO comedy show about political life in Washington D.C., lies in its ability to work within the confines of the realistic. While the storylines are fictional, as is Louis-Dreyfus’s character, the politician Selina Meyer, the framework in which the show works is believable. We can imagine a politician dealing with a “stress-pimple” or bumbling her way through the ramifications of an accidental tweet. [Trump] is ruining comedy. "Veep" executive producer David Mandel But the near-constant chaos trumpeted up by Trump has created a reality that makes the parody that is “Veep” look tame by comparison. “It’s madness and it’s unbelievably crude,” Mandel said. “While I know a lot of people say ‘Veep’ is occasionally crude, I certainly like to think that we are artfully crude. Most likely we’d all be fired if we wrote a 10th of what has happened thus far.” “Some of the fun of [Meyer’s] existence is the incompetency at the job,” the producer added. “Yet none of those things we do [on ‘Veep’] seem quite as incompetent as running for president and knowing that you had a video of you harassing women out there. What we used to do was sort of like funny incompetence, and this is just sort of sad, scary incompetence.” “Veep” actor Sam Richardson, who plays the always-affable Richard Splett on the show, relayed similar sentiments to The Huffington Post earlier this year.  “If we tried to do this, what’s happening in the world, on our show — it’d be like, ‘Well, it’s fake-o. No way. That’s not real,’” Richardson said.  In his conversation with the Los Angeles Times, Mandel recalled a joke from Season 5 in which a character apparently called a female police officer a “p***y.” Eventually, the joke was cut because it seemed a bit too much, a decision that now looks unnecessarily conservative in hindsight. Timothy Simons, who plays the gregarious Jonah Ryan on the show, told HuffPost a similar story this year in which his character accidentally raises his hand in a manner reminiscent of the Third Reich. Again, the actor thought it might have been too much. But, soon after, Trump did almost the exact same thing.  “Ostensibly this entire election campaign is like a comedy version of someone hitting you in the face with a fish,” Simons said at the time. “It’s so ridiculous, it would never happen in real life.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Emmys to Trump: We’re not rigged

The Emmys reassured the public that their voting process was fair after Hillary Clinton brought up a series of years-old tweets from Donald Trump alleging that the television award show was rigged.“According to many, and while nominated, I would have won the Emmy many times except for my politics,” Trump tweeted in 2013 - one of several tweets that stated the Television Academy, the organization that awards the Emmys, was rigging the vote. Which is worse and which is more dishonest – the @Oscars or the Emmys?” he tweeted in 2014. Clinton referenced the tweets after Donald Trump refused to say if he would peacefully accept the results of this year’s elections, pointing to a long history of Trump saying the deck was stacked against him when he was losing.Shortly after the debate ended, the Television Academy tweeted “rest assured, the #Emmys are not rigged” and linked to an infographic that details their voting process.According to the graphic, over 20,000 voting members cast ballots for the Emmys online, and the results are independently checked by the accounting firm Ernst & Young.The Television Academy wasn’t alone in defended the integrity of the event - actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who plays former president Selina Meyer on HBO’s hit show Veep and who has personally won nine Emmys, also tweeted that “the Emmys are NOT rigged.”

Trump Takes Quick Break From Debate To Note He Should Have Won Emmy

Donald Trump took a brief moment during the third presidential debate on Wednesday, a very serious moment in which two individuals vying for the U.S. presidency debated the most important issues in the country, to note, hey, he really deserved at least one Emmy for the work on “Celebrity Apprentice,”  you know? Discussing Trump’s claims that the 2016 election is “rigged,” Hillary Clinton brought up his past claims that the system was fixed against him. “There was even a time when he didn’t get an Emmy for his TV program three years in a row and he started tweeting that the Emmys were rigged,” she said. Not missing a beat, Trump quipped, “Should have gotten it!” Donald Trump says he "should've gotten" an Emmy for "The Apprentice" #debate pic.twitter.com/eyDqEVtAeA— ABC7 Eyewitness News (@ABC7) October 20, 2016 “This is a mindset. This is how Donald thinks,” Clinton continued.  Clinton is right. This has apparently been bugging Trump for some time, since he tweeted about it over four years ago. Ironically, he criticized the Emmys at the time by comparing it to his current line of work: politics.  The Emmys are all politics, that's why, despite nominations, The Apprentice never won--even though it should have many times over.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2012 Which is worse and which is more dishonest - the #Oscars or the Emmys?— Donald J.

PENCE beats KAINE and TRUMP -- BEHIND the SCENES in Farmville -- WSJ: TRUMP’s best debate -- B’DAY: Mandy Grunwald

Good Wednesday morning. The general consensus: Mike Pence won the debate. The CNN/ORC poll post-debate poll -- which tends to track pretty closely with public surveys taken days later -- has Pence beating Tim Kaine last night, 48% to 42% (http://cnn.it/2dIQihu) Pence turned in a far better performance than Donald Trump. Even the Trump haters thought Pence was good. ERICK ERICKSON (@EWErickson): “Pence has convinced me conservatives should not write him off for 2020 just by being Trump’s VP nominee. He was solid.”34 DAYS until ELECTION DAY.A FEW THOUGHTS: This won’t move polls a smidgen and Trump won’t be happy that his No. 2 was far better than he was. And while this debate won’t impact the race overall, there will be a lasting effect and well of support for Pence, particularly among the often fickle donor class that has been extremely frustrated by Trump. Though Pence clearly had the better evening Tuesday night, his one big flub came out of frustration with Kaine pressing him several times on Trump calling Mexicans rapists. Democrats have already seized on his clumsy retort — “You whipped out that Mexican thing [email protected]: “CNN’s John King, reporting from a source close to Trump, that the reviews that Pence did better [than] he did won’t go over well with [email protected]: “Trump adviser on debate after Pence passed up opportunities to defend him: ‘Pence won overall, but lost with Trump’ … more from adviser on Trump reaction to strong Pence debate following poor Trump showing last week: ‘he can’t stand to be upstaged’”**SUBSCRIBE to Playbook: http://politi.co/1M75UbX--WSJ EDITORIAL BOARD: “Trump’s best debate”: “If Donald Trump could make the case for Donald Trump half as well as Mike Pence makes the case for Donald Trump, the New York businessman would be well on his way to the White House. That’s our conclusion from Tuesday’s vice presidential debate, in which the Indiana Governor made the sustained case against the Hillary Clinton-Barack Obama status quo in Washington that Mr. Trump should have made last week …“Mr. Kaine’s marching orders clearly were to absorb the Clinton campaign’s opposition research file on Mr. Trump, keep repeating it, and dare Mr. Pence to defend it. The point seemed to be to remind Americans that Mr. Trump can be crude, nasty and untutored. This fits the Clinton campaign strategy to delegitimize Mr. Trump personally as a potential President. His affirmative case for Mrs. Clinton and her agenda were almost afterthoughts. For the most part Mr. Pence dodged this trap, going back on offense against the Clinton-Obama record rather than defend every Trump statement, many of which are indefensible. This is a useful lesson for Mr. Trump to take into the next debate on Sunday night, a town hall in which audience members will ask the questions. People want to like their Presidents.” http://on.wsj.com/2cSlxVD [email protected]: “Pence is a former member of congressional leadership & sitting governor. No governors or senators in spin room for him, 2 House members.” ... @davidfrum: “There’s a lot to be said for running professional politicians for professional political offices.” ... @maggieNYT: “Eric Trump says Pence ‘represented the family’ and the party well.

Trump’s campaign had nobody. PENCE went on a run around Longwood University to get ready for the main event. CBS’s ELAINE QUIJANO turned to veteran CBS anchor -- and three-time debate moderator -- BOB SCHIEFFER and senior White House correspondent Bill Plante to help her prep for the debate. Schieffer played Pence and Plante played Kaine. WISCONSIN GOV. SCOTT WALKER, who played Kaine for Pence, was seen as very effective. The Pence team sought more advice from Walker than expected.SPOTTED in FARMVILLE: Sean Hannity, accompanied by a five-person entourage, greeted like a hero in the filing center … Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) wandering around the media center after hitting the buffet … Breitbart’s Matt Boyle at the Budweiser bar … Having dinner in the beer tent: Dan Balz, Phil Rucker, Jen Palmieri and Donna Brazile ...

Scott Brown (R-Mass.), Jesse Jackson, Eric Trump and Matt SchlappALEX BURNS: “Under sustained pressure from Mr. Kaine, Mr. Pence declined for almost the entire evening to break from Donald J. Trump on any questions of judgment and policy. He calmly sidestepped a flurry of attacks over Mr. Trump’s offensive remarks, opting to ignore them rather than defend his running mate, and delivered his own, sanitized version of the Trump-Pence message. In a tone of reassurance, Mr. Pence insisted there was nothing improper about Mr. Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns.” http://nyti.ms/2cSp3iX BOB COSTA: “Indiana Gov. Mike Pence spent Tuesday’s vice-presidential debate being the opposite of Donald Trump, both in style and in substance. Pence was humble. He was a font of homespun Midwestern values and traditional Republican orthodoxy.” http://wapo.st/2dwnzxh GLENN THRUSH’s FIVE TAKEAWAYS “FROM THE DEBATE THAT DIDN’T MATTER”: “The first and only vice-presidential debate of 2016 was less a game-changer than a channel-changer, a snippy and probably inconsequential 90 minutes marginally won by Mike Pence – a confident, slightly smarmy debater very much in the mold of those calculating Washington, D.C., politicians who are destroying America … Hillary Clinton is lucky she’s facing Trump instead of Pence … Tim Kaine wasn’t trying to win the debate – he was trying to bash Trump … “Snatching discord from the jaws of victory? Clinton and her brain trust, according to several Democrats I spoke to, were satisfied (if not elated) by Kaine’s performance. Whether Trump appreciated Pence’s defenses, well that’s less clear. Moments after the candidates left the stage, John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times quoted a Trump adviser saying that the GOP nominee, who was watching the debate from a hotel in Vegas, was less than satisfied with his running mate … Pence dodged almost every tough question ... Quijano was a weak moderator.” http://politi.co/2dsCUQ9 PAUL RYAN -- The speaker’s post-debate statement: “I could not be more proud of my friend Mike Pence’s performance tonight. Mike articulated very clearly why Republicans have better solutions to grow our economy, provide more good paying jobs, address the growing threats to our national security, and improve the lives of American workers. He delivered a strong view of the conservative principles that drive our party and provided clear contrast between the policies of a Trump-Pence administration and four more years of failed Obama-era policies.”POLLS -- MONMOUTH: PENNSYLVANIA -- Hillary Clinton 50, Donald Trump 40, Gary Johnson 5, Jill Stein 2 http://bit.ly/2dsBOUp … ELON: NORTH CAROLINA -- Hillary Clinton 45, Donald Trump 39 http://bit.ly/2dDNG7E HAPPENING TODAY -- DONALD TRUMP has an 11:30 a.m. event in Henderson, Nevada, followed by a 3:30 p.m. rally in Reno.

ЕБРР одобрил выделение сырьевому трейдеру Louis Dreyfus $100 млн кредита

Совет директоров Европейского банка реконструкции и развития (ЕБРР) одобрил предоставление международной трейдерской группе компаний Louis Dreyfus трехлетнего возобновляемого кредита на $100 млн для частичного финансирования оборотного капитала дочерних компаний группы.
