    A growing middle class, digital disruption, sustainable innovation. What do all these have in common? The increasing prevalence of Latin America on the global stage. With this in mind, EXMA, the largest marketing platform across IberoAmerica (Spain, LatAm, US) is unveiling major 2019 plans. On May 27th the organization will host its marquee event in Bogota, Colombia.

    The two-day conference will deal with topics such as digital transformation, strategy, creative economy, entrepreneurship and new business models, with around 60 world-class exhibitors, including an unprecedented special guest, the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, who will be leading discussions on innovation, among other topics as EXMA presents “A Conversation with President Barack Obama.” … https://finance.yahoo.com/news/exma-announces-barack-obama-speak-190100498.html

      I had a similar thought about Burr, because I think Warner and he have a pretty good relationship, and I trust Warner enough to go along – unless we hear differently. Fingers crossed.

        I heard another D senator say last week (he is on that Senate committee, but do not remember who it was) that that committee has really worked rather bipartisan from the beginning. Hope he is right.

      From Chairman Nadler’s statement to committee yesterday:
      “No person—and certainly not the top law enforcement officer in the country—can be permitted to flout the will of Congress and to defy a valid subpoena.”

  26. May 9, 2019 at 11:48 am

    (Have transcribed) from Chairman Nadler’s interview with Rachel Maddow last night:
    “to evade accountability to evade the information getting out, to evade the American people from having information and they need to judge the Administration and support or oppose whatever it’s doing. We can’t abide this obviously, we have to maintain a democratic form of government which means the people have to decide ultimately and they can’t do that without the requisite information which the Administration is trying to deny them. So that is why we issued subpoenas. That is why we cited the Attorney General for contempt today. It will be voted on in the next couple of weeks and that will go into court to enforce the subpoena. We are going to ask the court to expedite the matter as fast as possible, we have some strategies for that, and that’s really what we have to do to thwart the Administration’s desire to run a lawless administration…
    ..We have an Attorney General who is not only acting as a personal attorney for the President instead rather than the Attorney General for the United States, but he is turning the Justice Department into a vehicle for evading the law.”

    • May 9, 2019 at 11:49 am

      And again the order by the Administration to Mueller and to McGahn not to testify is a lawless order.
      There’s no possible interpretation of executive privilege which would justify telling someone who has already given out information publicly either to the Mueller investigation or to his own attorney, that that is privileged information. It is just the Trump Administration being lawless and trying to deny the American people all information and putting pressure on Mueller and McGahn not to testify. Of course we have a lot of questions for Mueller and McGahn. And remember that Barr began this whole process by misrepresenting what was in the Mueller report twice, and by making his own judgement about what the Mueller report clearly intended to be Congress’s judgement. And then attempts to silence Mueller and make sure he doesn’t appear before Congress or before anybody.
      …it leads one to wonder what they’re afraid of. Remember the Attorney General has told us repeatedly and all the Republicans and Senator McConnell have told us that the finding of the Mueller report was ‘no collusion, no obstruction’. If that’s true why are they trying to hide it?
      It’s obviously not true.”

    • May 9, 2019 at 11:50 am

      Chairman Nadler: “…(Mueller) will no longer be an employee of the Justice department in a couple of weeks, at which point they can’t tell him what to do at all. And even private citizens and employees of the Justice Department must testify for a congressional or court subpoena. It is not optional, period. And the American have a right to that information including (questions which Maddow had posed earlier) …was the Mueller investigation stopped by Barr. Was he told to stop, was he told not to mention certain subjects in his report, those are certainly questions we’ll ask him.”

  27. May 9, 2019 at 11:56 am

    good info on impeachment

  28. May 9, 2019 at 11:58 am

    Chairman Nadler:
    “…Because the bottom line is this is not a fight between Mueller and the Trump Administration or Mueller and Barr, the bottom line is does the American people have the right to information with which they can make decisions in governing. This is a democratic country. If you can vote but have no information because the information is guarded by the Administration, and you don’t know what the Administration is doing, you don’t know what crimes they are committing, you don’t know anything, then the vote becomes very hollow. This is why this is such a crisis for a democracy and we have to prevail here. We have never had a president who instructed people to ignore all subpoenas. And when you ignore a subpoena you’re ignoring a subpoena not just from Congress but for information for the American people, and we’ve never had that before. And we have to vindicate the right of the American people to this information. We have to vindicate the fact that the President is not above the law and that people can testify against him if they have something to testify about.”

    Neal Katyal told Maddow he might call this battle of “Trump versus the Truth”. And that Trump is afraid of “all this stuff coming out to the American public and to Congress”. Don’t know if you’ve noticed Neal Katyal’s subtly hilarious humor. For example he said last night that with Trump blocking everything from tax returns to witnesses: Trump is “kind of like a vampire afraid of sunlight.”

    • May 9, 2019 at 1:04 pm

      Per the rules for Special Counsel that Katyal co-set up in the 1990s:
      Katyal explained that Mr. Mueller can resign and testify. And that Trump’s idea that everyone in the Mueller report is now blocked by executive privilege is ‘palpably ridiculous’. He points out that he can download the report onto his phone as well as his computer!!
      By July 1974, SCOTUS justices had all voted against Nixon. Katyal: “And this case is even stronger” than the one against Nixon.

      So some GOP dood in Alabama, as they attempt to get rid of Roe-v-Wade, declared that a woman who has an ectopic pregnancy, they can scoop that embryo right out of her fallopian tubes right into her uterus. That’s NOT even a medical procedure. I gave up on seeking polite words from Webster’s. 😏

    Today is a good day. These limited MetroLA Tap cards are going like hotcakes. Is anyone here surprised? They went on sale yesterday and already mostly sold out. When I got to one of the Metro Customer Centers this morning where they are selling them, 2 of the 3 customer agents had already sold out their allotment. The 3rd agent (a fellow “Obamabot” who still had a few left) and I got to chuckle and reminisce about the 8 years with our forever President, forever First Lady and family. I wish I could have got one for everyone here at TOD. Can’t wait to travel the City of LA with our illustrious Prez.

      Yes, hell should welcome him one day with the heat of a thousand suns.

      Does he have to register as a foreign agent (or whatever you call it) to do that? I know it’s not moral or ethical but is this legal? Should he have his law license removed?

      That’s all we need is another foreign country in our 2020 election.

    Interesting on the Sanders part. I know I don’t like him, even though I won’t put him down much (or anybody else, at this point) on other sites.


    “Sanders, the independent Democratic Socialist, is the candidate with the highest NOPE factor. A full 28 percent of Democrats surveyed say they won’t vote for Bernie. Sanders at least scores well in the poll’s other dimension: 36 percent of party voters say they’re considering casting a ballot or caucusing for him.”

    “May 10: Astrological commentaries from Bali. Dear Friends, I had been totally prepared to continue my posts about some of the more subtle meanings of the planets (see my post of May 4th) BUT then the latest horror occurred at the school in Highlands, Colorado and a true hero, Kendrick Castillo was murdered and 8 other kids were injured (some very seriously) and 1900 young people and surely double that number of parents were all personally traumatized. As the song says: “We don’t need another hero….” not a teen-aged boy who dies because national morality is in decay. A national soul is very injured when its children kills its children. We do not need another hero, we need an army of heroes and heroines. I remember very clearly being a twenty-something kid in the 1960s who with a group of other kids, confronted a group of politicians and police in Central Park (NYC) and put flowers in their hands and lapels. “Where have all the flowers gone????”

    I never recall an American without hypocrisy: an American that conducted a Native-American genocide convincing us kids in the 1950s that our Native Brothers and Sisters were “savages” and the men who murdered them were our “heroes.” I remember a segregated America when even in NYC I had to enter the “service elevator” in a Park Avenue building when my Black junior high school date (we won first prize at the school dance, by the way!) wanted to introduce me to her mother who was a maid for some white people (who I assumed when entering the apartment and finding her mother sitting on the sofa smoking a cigarette, were on vacation somewhere). Eleanor, my date, told me that the “regular elevator” was broken and that her mom’s maid’s uniform was her “house dress.” I let her believe that I believed what she said. When I left after my visit, I took the “regular elevator” down to the lobby. It had been “miraculously repaired.” I remember an America in which my father told me when I was about 7 or 8 years old to spell my name O’Ken so that people would think we were Irish and that his job would not be in jeopardy because we were Jewish.

    But I never remember an American in which as a kid I was afraid of being shot in school. School was a refuge, a place of fun, learning, and promise. Promise that eventually I could spell my name as Oken (even though Jews–and Muslims, and Christians are being killed every day). Still, I never, ever thought that as a child, teenager, and young adult at university, that I or any of my classmates or teachers could get killed just by going to school and that a big debate would be going on relative to teachers carrying (defensive) weapons to school with them in the morning.

    The effects of this shooting like you, reached into my heart, but these effects also announced themselves in my office here in Bali. This was when my first private student of the day had to call to cancel her appointment because “There has been a shooting at a school in my neighborhood and I need to go and comfort parents and kids.” She lives in Highlands, Colorado.

    I will continue my astrological posts tomorrow or the day after. Today, I join you in prayers and in doing whatever I/we can do to bring more Light into these dark days.

    With love and blessings to one and all,

    As we prepare for #MothersDay on Sunday, I wanted to take a moment to shine a light on those women in our lives who may not be our mothers, but have nonetheless played an important role in nurturing us. I’ve been grateful to be surrounded by so many strong, intelligent, warm-hearted women who, along with my mother, have made me who I am. They include my soft-spoken grandmother LaVaughn, whose work managing a Bible book store showed me some of my first glimpses of a woman in charge. I sparred with my Aunt Robbie, who lived below us, during piano lessons—but her teaching showed me the importance of hard work and preparation, and she was always there for me when I needed her most. My mentor at Princeton, Czerny, saw potential in me and did her part to get me to step outside of my comfort zone—to be a little more bold, a little less cautious. And then there’s Eleanor Kaye Wilson, who we call “Mama Kaye.” She’s sweet-hearted and deep-rooted, a second mother or grandmother for all four of us—Malia, Sasha, Barack, and me. She’s been there to help with mealtime, craft time, been to all of our events over so many years—a wonderful friend and confidant to my mother. We love her, just like we love so many supportive women whose stories and contributions often go unrecognized, but who deserve just as much appreciation and love this time of year. So if there’s a Mama Kaye or a Czerny, a Grandma LaVaughn or an Aunt Robbie in your life, make sure to show them some love this weekend, too.
