Outrageous!


The center mass of Trump’s campaign of inhumanity is focused on infants again, this time their global feeding: in the name of “choice” HHS opposed a World Health Organization resolution in support of breastfeeding, citing the near consensus research from field populations that breast milk gives human infants the best chance of healthy development and disease resistance; if fact the US delegation forced Ecuador by threats (to military aid and trade) to withdraw the resolution before the assembly. After scrambles and nations saying no, Russia agreed to sponsor the resolution. Without US objections nor White House-directed, diplomatic threats. Everyone knew the US backed down. 2 Replies54 Recommend

Donna Brazile wrote and spoke about its frozen will. Jim Clyburn said the difference between campaign polls and voting feet would be radio spots, too late for yard signs. Charles Blow rails against its moral failures; Joy Reid counts its harm. Paul Krugman warns about self-inflicted faults. But the billion campaign shared no funds. No crumbs.

Polls are preliminary, not final. Feet win.

Ocasio-Cortez is authentic. “A fighter,” she brings deep, joyful spirit. She wants healthcare, housing and education from public money; not “free,” but shared. The difference between her and traditional Democrats? She beat a vaulted machine boss: in line for House Speaker in a waterfront district that bounds both sides of a river, a different borough on each side; a purged 2016 voter in a district with an international airport, a pro ball park, the US Tennis Open, and lots of public riverlands, she motivated the least motivated voters. If you take no corporate money and knock on doors, your values and message are clear.

Why Breast-Feeding Scares Donald Trump


The Times piles its list of many things: “bullying, anti-science, pro-industry, anti-public health and shortsighted,” but one word sums up its motive force: hate. Trump hates everyone but the Nigerian “hard man,” corrupt, narcissistic, above the law, misogynistic, a messenger of evil and deception.

His hate has its own hierarchy, clued by his actions, witnessed in his silence: no grief or compassion for the urban victims killed unarmed across the country, not a word of sorrow for Claudia Patricia Gomez Gonzalez, shot in the head by a border agent; silence first greeted crying children Trump exploited to blame Democrats without cause.

What hospitals do routinely, put wristbands on individuals, read with hand scanners, has been as lost as the children deliberately hurt by the abuse of separation.

The center mass of Trump’s hate is focused on infants again, their global feeding: for “choice” HHS opposed a World Health Organization resolution in support of breastfeeding, citing the consensus research that breast milk gives human infants the best chance of healthy development and disease resistance. The US delegation forced Ecuador by threats (to military aid and trade) to withdraw the resolution before the assembly. After scrambles and nations saying no, Russia agreed to sponsor the resolution. Without US objections nor White House-directed, diplomatic threats. The corporations had lost to the Russians.

Everyone watched and knew the US backed down.

Theresa May Amid Brexit Rift – The New York Times


“Trump’s corporate decisions are patterned after his real estate model! Despite lots of coaching by CEO global masters, Trump can only think of value and pricing as blocks, not as flow as modern managers and nations do, knowing trade is moving money, not income or profit, a cash flow that accurately glimpses the supply chain, absent political vulnerabilities.”

Trump’s tariffs opened trade to political vulnerabilities, and several nations have gone directly after bourbon, an American whiskey made in Kentucky. Wisconsin cheese is a target, too. Maine could lost 25% of its lobster sales, with the lost multiplier rippling through the economy.

Meanwhile, Trump’s Pennsylvania Avenue landmark hotel is filled nightly, business class and foreign meetings, everyday events. (My comment, [https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/09/world/europe/david-davis-brexit-resign.html?comments#permid=27786157])
