Matt Viser: Senator Edward Markey Says He Will Back Iran Deal

Senator Edward J. Markey on Wednesday said he would support the Iran nuclear agreement, offering his endorsement on a highly charged issue that has been dividing some Democrats. Markey – a Massachusetts Democrat who took the seat long held by Secretary of State John Kerry, who negotiated the deal – said in a statement provided to the Globe that he believes that the negotiated deal is the best way to ensure Iran doesn’t build a nuclear weapon.  “I have concluded that diplomacy remains our best tool to secure a nuclear weapon-free Iran,” Markey said.

“That’s why I intend to support the Iran nuclear agreement when it comes before Congress in September.” “This agreement is far from perfect and carries risks,” he added. “But I believe our negotiators achieved as much as they reasonably could, and that if strictly implemented, this plan can be effective.” Markey is the latest member of the Massachusetts delegation to announce his support for the deal. Earlier this month, Senator Elizabeth Warren, as well as representatives Seth Moulton, Stephen Lynch, and Jim McGovern also announced their support. Representative Michael Capuano has said he is “leaning strongly in favor,” and no member of the all-Democratic delegation has come out against the deal.

Sam P.K. Collins: Americans Actually Like Michelle Obama’s Healthier School Lunches

A national poll shows that more than 80 percent of Americans support healthy school meals consisting of more fruit and vegetables and less high calorie and sodium food choices, requirements outlined in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act — a law that authorized the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to set nutritional standards for food sold and distributed in schools and expanded access to healthy lunch to more than 115,000 U.S. children. The survey, conducted by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, debunks the primary argument against the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, one of the central policies at the heart of First Lady Michelle Obama’s effort to address childhood obesity. “Our survey found that people in the U.S. overwhelmingly support strong nutrition standards and believe school meals are healthier and on the right track because of these standards,” La June Montgomery Tabron, president and chief executive of the W. K. Kellogg Foundation,

told the New York Times. If lawmakers reauthorize the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act next month, schools would receive $4.5 billion over the next decade. With time dwindling before it’s set to expire, its supporters and challengers have scrambled to make their case, drawing out a battle that started shortly after its passage and holding nothing back in the process. Since the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act’s inception, the program has expanded, serving more than one million students across the United States not only lunch, but dinner too as part of its after-school snack offerings. The UDSA also rolled out $5 million in grants to fund programs that connect school cafeterias with local farmers. The 2014 grant cycle supported more than 80 projects in 42 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. In total, more than $385 million in locally grown produce has entered school buildings across the country.

    http://www.kpho.com/story/29838796/ashley-madison-leak-linked-to-arizona-government-military-emails

    The massive leaked data trove from the cheating website Ashley Madison appears to be legitimate, several security analysts said. What’s more, we found dozens of the accounts were registered to Arizona government and military email domains.

    Among the breached accounts were 11 registered to @azcorrections.gov, the domain for the Arizona Department of Corrections. Five accounts were registered to emails at the City of Phoenix’s domain, @phoenix.gov. Five accounts were linked to variations of Maricopa County’s domain, @maricopa.gov. There also were accounts linked to domains from the cities of Scottsdale and Tempe.

    In all, some 15,000 Ashley Madison accounts were registered to .gov or .mil domains, suggesting thousands of government employees and public servants may have used their work emails to sign up for the extramarital dating website.

    HA! I can assure you ( because this is AZ) that many of these “wanna be cheaters” are also they can…YET! this is all fine because they were putting one over on the big, bad, gumit…you know the type:) AND they’re holier than thou….passing judgement on everyone else….all the time…part of me wishes they’d publish the real names…..instead, they’re wasting taxpayer money doing this mess at work…the irony.

I remember the talk about the Navy had decided to stop serving fried food, and some Navy men wanted to blame the First Lady Obama and she had nothing to do with that decision. A white First Lady and they would be all for kids eating healthy.

    Morning. I find it interesting that the height of the silly season–late summer in the year before a presidential election with Republican clowns getting loonier by the minute– is occurring while our President is on vacation. He’s recouping his energy and honing his strategies while playing the ‘rope a dope’ game with the GOP nutcases. When the President is back in the White House making news and giving very quotable press conferences, the stage is going to be a little bit more confining for the lunatics. Remember that the vast majority of Americans are only vaguely tuning in and are more concerned with enjoying the last remaining days of summer and getting kids back to school. People may say they support lunatic 1 over lunatic 2, but it’s a long, long way from the time that anyone has to actually make a decision in front of a voting machine. And the world’s foremost political genius is still biding his time on the golf course.

    • August 20, 2015 at 10:20 am

      For me, the “entertainment” factor of the GOP candidates…especially their current front-runner… is starting to cross the line into scary.

      I was listening to Trump’s press conference/town hall meeting on yesterday and cannot understand how the media can report his outrageous comments as if he is presenting serious and feasible solutions; as if everything he says is completely factual. The Trump is being Trump mantra is no more acceptable than saying “boys will be boys”/”kids will be kids.” I am of the notion that if you have to keep telling people how good you are, you must not be *that* good. Yet, Trump’s sentences are punctuated by, “I am wonderful,” “I am great,” “I am smart” “I am brilliant,”… and what seems to be his favorite…”I am rich.” As I said, the outrageousness has become less entertaining and is crossing into scary; not to mention that his constant self-aggrandizing is a turn-off.

      When he openly admitted — bragged — that he took advantage of laws that allowed him to claim bankruptcy, thus cheating creditors out of money and resulting in people losing their jobs, I couldn’t believe that instead of causing indignation, it seemed to heighten the admiration towards him (or people just ignored that comment).

      And the other candidates are following suit, if for no other reason to get face-time. And there’s still more than a year of this to contend with. Can we survive it?

          One of the things I was watching for is if Hillary had learned any lessons from 2008. Apparently not. She’s been running for POTUS professionally since Bill left office. She should know how to do this, and let the people who do know have the freedom to do it right. Being disorganized is no longer “cute” or “youthful”. She’s 68 years old, for God’s sake. Act like a grown-up, understand that campaigns need to be slick, organized and be ready to frame properly and quickly what is thrown at you. The campaign has been marginally better than 2008, but not enough.

    • August 20, 2015 at 9:50 am

      I mentioned seeing her video yesterday and I was actually totally shocked at how bad she is. Like maybe “losing your job” bad. But that was the first time I’ve seen her on camera so I may be entirely wrong about her but she was very ill-prepared to handle the subject. I felt bad for her.

      When you spew out hate what else do you think you will inspire, love. In 2007 when Senator Barack Obama announced he was running for President, he wasn’t given a chance to win and if he said the things Donald Trump is saying the media would rip into him and the right wing haters, I can only imagine what they would have said. When Sen. Obama ran, he and Michelle Obama had to be very very very careful what they said.

      “Police said two brothers from South Boston ambushed the 58-year-old as he slept outside of a Dorchester MBTA stop, and targeted him because he is Hispanic. One of the brothers said he was inspired in part by GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.

      SKIP

      Trump, told of the alleged assault, said “it would be a shame . . . I will say that people who are following me are very passionate. They love this country and they want this country to be great again. They are passionate.”

      SKIP

      According to State Police, the Leader brothers were on their way home from a Red Sox game when they found the victim sleeping near the John F. Kennedy/UMass stop on the Red Line.

      He told police he was awakened by two men urinating on his face. He said they ripped away his blankets and sleeping bag, and started rummaging through his things.

      “Next thing . . . he was getting hit in the face and head,” according to the State Police report. “He remembers being punched several times and hit with the metal pole.”

      The man was taken to Boston Medical Center, where he remained in fair condition Wednesday afternoon, a hospital spokeswoman said. The police report said he had a broken nose, bruises on his head, and a large bruise across his torso.

      The brothers walked away from the scene laughing, a witness told State Police.

      Sen Booker knows what is right. His equivocation from doing the right thing is deeply troubling. If he was against the Iraq war, if he votes No……now for the #IranDeal, then he is going to have a harder time keeping his seat next time around, there is going to be a challenger, perhaps, Ms Bouno……the former State Sen who ran against Christie for Gov in 2013.

    It’s a Q poll but food for thought nevertheless:

    Joe Biden is running as strong or slightly stronger than Hillary Clinton in prospective general election match-ups against Republicans Donald Trump and Jeb Bush in three big swing states, Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, according to a new survey that may influence the vice president’s thinking as he considers a run.

    The Quinnipiac University swing-state poll released Thursday shows Clinton remaining a formidable candidate for the Democratic nomination: The former secretary of state is still the top choice by far of Democratic voters asked about their primary choices. But it marked the first time this year that Quinnipiac has had Clinton’s share of the primary vote below 50 percent in the three swing states, said the survey’s assistant director, Peter Brown. Her unfavorable ratings were between 54 percent and 55 percent in all three states. The unfavorable ratings for Biden, who is expected to say whether he’ll run by late September, were between 42 percent and 43 percent.

Hell if Bernie somehow won the nomination I’d vote for him or even O’Malley. Trump as president would be the worse thing to happen and none of the other alternatives are much better.

    PA Cyber Charter founder Nick Trombetta indicted on fraud and tax charges

    The founder and former CEO of a cyber-charter school that educates
    more than 11,000 Pennsylvania students has been indicted by a federal grand jury.

    Fifty-eight-year-old Nicholas Trombetta of East Liverpool, Ohio, is accused of siphoning more than $8 million from the school through a network of profit and non-profit companies he controlled.

    Trombetta surrendered to authorities Thursday night on the charges announced Friday by federal authorities.

    Trombetta allegedly bought a $1 million Florida condominium and houses for his girlfriend and mother, along with nearly $1 million on personal expenses, including groceries.

    White House mentee heads to Morehouse College
    By Hamil R. Harris August 19 at 5:23 PM

    Noah McQueen used to spend more time fighting and getting arrested than getting good grades and listening to advice. He changed households and public schools 10 times before he landed at the Maryland Juvenile Justice Cheltenham Youth Center.

    But times have changed.

    “Do you need a ride back to the White House?” a presidential aide asked McQueen, 19, as he stood inside Eddie’s Hair Design in Adams Morgan on a recent day.

    “No, I have my own car now,” he responded.

    McQueen didn’t need a barber; he had a fresh haircut. He was there to work. McQueen was there with Broderick Johnson, head of the White House’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative, to be a role model to students from Marie Reed Elementary School. The initiative was launched last year to improve educational and job opportunities for young men of color.

    White House officials, including President Obama, have worked hard to help McQueen. His life changed three years ago, when, as a student at Dr. Henry A. Wise Jr. High School in Upper Marlboro, he began mentoring children at nearby Barack Obama Elementary.

    “I get choked up . . . when I think about where I was,” McQueen said as he reflected on a troubled childhood that included several suspensions, arrests and other run-ins with the law.

    Now McQueen is a freshman at Morehouse College in Atlanta. He graduated in May from Wise, where he finished with a 3.25 grade-point average even though his freshman and sophomore years were academic disasters.

    McQueen came to the attention of the White House because he was part of several mentoring groups. He was selected to participate in My Brother’s Keeper and, in February, the president interviewed McQueen about his life.

    I love that PBO and his team are starting to post on other platforms like Medium and Tumblr so they will be preserved after they leave the WH.

    With this in mind, why does the controversy matter? First, I tend to think it’s noteworthy anytime ideas like these make the transition from the political fringe to the Republican “mainstream.” The far-right idea of challenging birthright citizenship isn’t new, exactly, but the idea of this being embraced by so many GOP presidential candidates is new. It’s relevant evidence of the party’s radicalization.

      What is the percentage of unmarried men registered?

        I don’t know the number, but I believe it is lower than unregistered unmarried women. The tweet’s emphasis on the unmarried woman’s voter registration because it was such a hard fight to get suffrage for women.

          Gotcha, the said point is all American’s voting records are horrible except for the old, scared, and haters.

            It boggles the mind. As long as they can get their ballgames and reality TV shows and their cell phones work, they don’t give a damn about anything. It’s a travesty.

    Jindal is an arse. Though his family came here legally on a Student Visa……but they did not declare that his mother was pregnant……Hence making Jindal……an “Anchor Baby” too.
