Clinton Picks TPP Supporter Kaine as VP in Move Toward Center for Election

July 23, 2016 by legitgov

Clinton Picks TPP Supporter Kaine as VP in Move Toward Center for Election | 22 July 2016 | Hillary Clinton named Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her running mate for the Democratic presidential ticket, a widely-anticipated choice that may say more about how she wants to govern than how she plans to win in November. Clinton made the announcement Friday in a text message to supporters. Kaine, 58, a white Catholic from a battleground state who's fluent in Spanish, is a safe choice for the woman who will this week become the first-ever female presidential nominee of a major U.S. political party. He's also a supporter of free trade, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership [corporate takeover] that President Barack Obama's administration negotiated with 11 other nations, and which awaits ratification in Congress.

At Least 9 Dead in 'Possible Terror Attack' at Munich Mall, Suspect Believed Dead | 22 July 2016 |  At least nine people are dead and at least 10 are injured, following what police have described as a "possible terror attack" at the Olympia-Einkaufszentrum shopping mall in Munich, Germany. The Munich Police said in tweets that they've found someone connected to the attack who killed himself and there’s a high probability he acted alone. Earlier, police said that witnesses called to report three people with guns on a nearby street who later moved toward the mall. They also said earlier that they found the ninth body about a half-mile from the mall, but it is unclear whether it is that of an attacker mentioned in the most recent tweet.

July 22, 2016 by legitgov

Virginia court invalidates Gov. Terry McAuliffe's order restoring felon voting rights | 22 July 2016 | The Supreme Court of Virginia has ruled against Gov. Terry McAuliffe's order restoring voting rights to more than 200,000 felons who completed their sentences, a decision that dealt a major blow to the Democratic governor and has implications for the November presidential race in the crucial swing state. In a 4-3 ruling issued Friday, the court ruled that McAuliffe overstepped his clemency powers under the state constitution by issuing a sweeping order in April restoring rights to all ex-offenders who are no longer incarcerated or on probation or parole. The court agreed with state Republicans who challenge McAuliffe's order, arguing voting rights should be restored on a case-by-case basis.

Tim Kaine, Outspoken Advocate of the TPP, Seems Likely for Hillary Clinton's No. 2 | 21 July 2016 | Democrats close to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign signaled strongly Thursday that she would choose Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia as her running mate, rounding out the ticket with a popular politician from a battleground state...Liberals say they are concerned about Mr. Kaine's positions on global trade deals and Wall Street regulation. He has been an outspoken advocate of free trade and has defended the North American Free Trade Agreement, which many voters in Rust Belt states blame for the loss of manufacturing jobs to Mexico. He voted in support of "fast track" authority for the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a 12-nation trade pact corporate takeover that President Obama has championed. Two others under consideration, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Labor Secretary Thomas E. Perez, also supported the Trans-Pacific Partnership...Putting Mr. Kaine on the ticket "could be disastrous for our efforts to defeat Donald Trump in the fall" because of his support of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, said Charles Chamberlain, executive director of Democracy for America, a liberal political action committee.

Hours Before Hillary Clinton's VP Decision, Likely Pick Tim Kaine Praises the TPP

July 22, 2016 by legitgov

Hours Before Hillary Clinton's VP Decision, Likely Pick Tim Kaine Praises the TPP | 21 July 2016 | Hillary Clinton's rumored vice presidential pick Sen. Tim Kaine defended his vote for fast-tracking the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) on Thursday. Kaine, who spoke to The Intercept after an event at a Northern Virginia mosque, praised the agreement as an improvement of the status quo, but maintained that he had not yet decided how to vote on final approval of the agreement. By contrast, Hillary Clinton has qualified her previous encouragement of the agreement, and now says she opposes it. Kaine's measured praise of the agreement could signal one of two things. Either he is out of the running for the vice presidential spot, as his position on this major issue stands in opposition to hers. Or, by picking him, Clinton is signaling that her newly declared opposition to the agreement is not sincere.

Mr. Trump, 70, a New York real estate developer and reality television star who leveraged his fame and forceful persona to become the rare political outsider to lead the ticket of a major party, drew exuberant cheers from Republican convention delegates as he strode onto the stage of the Quicken Loans Arena and delivered a speech as fiery as his candidacy.  Mr. Trump also challenged Republican orthodoxy as he promised to end multilateral trade deals and limit American intervention in global crises. He denounced "15 years of wars in the Middle East" -- a rebuke of his party's last president [sic], George W. Bush -- and pledged to help union members, coal miners and other low-wage Americans who have historically supported Democrats.

Melania Trump's Speechwriter Comes Forward to Apologize | 20 July 2016 | An in-house writer and longtime friend of the Trump family has stepped forward with an apology for her involvement in the preparation of Melania Trump's address at the Republican National Convention Monday night, which bore similarities to a 2008 Michelle Obama speech. Staffer Meredith McIver said she submitted her resignation Tuesday but the Trump family rejected it. "A person she [Melania] has always liked is Michelle Obama. Over the phone, she read me some passages from Mrs. Obama’s speech as examples. I wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech," McIver said in a statement, released this afternoon and written under Trump Organization letterhead. "This was my mistake, and I feel terrible for the chaos I have caused Melania and the Trumps, as well as Mrs. Obama..."

Nice attacker 'plotted for months and had accomplices' | 21 July 2016 | The man who drove a truck into crowds celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, killing 84 people and injuring hundreds more, had help planning the attack, the Paris prosecutor, François Molins, has revealed.

Molins told a press conference on Thursday that after the attack on the offices of the Charlie Hebdo magazine in January 2015, in which 12 people died, Bouhlel sent a text message to one suspect that read: "I am not Charlie. I'm happy they have brought some of Allah’s soldiers to finish the job."
