Today I turn 67. Besides Number 45, this continues to be my worst year. I was diagnosed with Pneumonia in January and put on a breathing machine in February. I never had any health issues until now. Even with medicare and extra I cannot afford my co-payments even under ACA and have had to forgo visits to specialists (co-payments are required before treatment). I wanted so much to be involved in the ground work of getting Democrats elected. Instead I must sit back and ask others to do what I cannot do.

This article walks us through the roster of the investigatory team that Robert Mueller has built up -- by all signs, one of the most talented groups of criminal investigators ever assembled. But the best part is the background stories, like the one that involved an FBI agent dressed up as a South African colonel improving operations efficiency at a visa renewal office just in order to be able to catch an international terrorist.

One day, there is going to be a movie about these people. It's going to be kind of awesome.

I am wondering if the color of his skin was the real issue. And it is Texas.

"Hartfield was freed from prison because Texas finally gave up trying to find a valid reason to keep him there. He had waited 35 years between trials without a conviction, a prisoner simply forgotten for decades in the state’s massive justice system."

“When the Town Of Jackson decides to honor such a divisive person, it is taking sides against some of its residents,” Muldoon said in the statement. “The Town Council has made no such decision, and until and unless it does, that kind of honor will not be bestowed.”

Muldoon stated that no one at city hall approved the placement of the portraits, comparing a requirement to display them to Stalinism.

“We aren’t required to display signs of respect ― our respect is earned, not demanded,” Muldoon explained. “Dictators like Joseph Stalin required their portraits to be displayed everywhere. Luckily, we do not live in a dictatorship.”

Sgt. Maj. Octaviano Gallegos, Jr. relinquished the duties of sergeant major of 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit to Sgt. Maj. Lanette Wright aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, March 14.

Wright became the first female MEU sergeant major in the history of the Marine Corps.

“Today is a chance for me to serve the Marine Corps at a higher level, I’m humbled and thankful to be able to take over this position,” said Wright. “Being a Marine leader, this is a great opportunity to be able to expand on my leadership.”

Hazel Johnson was the first African American woman to become a general in the U.S. Army. She was appointed the Chief of the Army Nurse Corps in 1979. Johnson held a doctorate in education administration from Catholic University (1978) and had honorary degrees from Morgan State University, Villanova University, and the University of Maryland.

Alejandro Gomez stepped forward from between his brothers in arms. Huddled under a white party tent with nearly two dozen other men, Gomez glanced around nervously, taking in the television cameras, reporters, and the seven members of the United States Congress that had come to meet them — US military vets deported after serving the only country they’d known.

With no mic, he raised his voice to make sure the lawmakers heard his simple message.

“This deportation is unjust,” the 50-year-old ex-Marine said. “It has cost me my marriage, separation from my kids, and my health.”

It was an emotional and surprising moment for Gomez who, after two deportations, had given up on the idea that he’d ever see his family again. And now, seven years after he’d arrived in Tijuana, a delegation from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus was standing here promising to fight forhim.

“The fact that seven congressmen and congresswomen made it up here is phenomenal to me,” Gomez said later. “It lifts up my hope. Just talking about it I get goosebumps. Because there’s hope now. You get deported, dude? You lose hope,” Gomez said, his voice cracking.

Gomez and the other men who met with the CHC lawmakers — all border state Democrats from California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas — represent just a handful of the veterans who have been deported over the last 20 years, swept up in raids targeting felons or those who repeatedly cross borders illegally.

“It’s a travesty. We believe anyone who was willing to risk their life for the United States should not be subject to deportation,” Texas Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro said after the meeting.___

This Is What Happens When Women Get Elected

Nevada just enacted a slew of women's rights laws under a GOP governor.

With a state legislature made up 40 percent of women, Nevada is second only to Vermont in terms of female representation. And that translated into a landmark session for women’s rights and health this year, even under a male Republican governor.

The same thing in Australia on "Australia Day" or the more appropriate "Invasion Day". In New Zealand/Aotearoa, we have Waitangi Day which is a far more appropriate day because Maori and pakeha can celebrate the signing of the Waitangi Treaty together. Pakeha have broken the treaty on numerous occasions but progress has been made. To ostracise indigenous peoples by celebrating the beginning of war and hundreds of years of unbelievable pain is beyond stupid. Pick another day! Easy!!

98-year-old secret millionaire gives fortune to Audubon for wildlife refuge

Real American hero.

"The now-not-so-secret millionaire is making headlines with his extraordinary donation of the stock (worth $2 million) to the Illinois Audubon Society, which is using it to help establish a 395-acre wildlife refuge in Lee County. The society had been yearning to purchase the property, and were able to buy it last year for $2.1 million using money from Gremel's shares along with a grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation, as well as cash from its own land acquisition fund."

Dissatisfaction with Christie’s time in office, which has been marred by scandal in a state where Democrats dominate the legislature and the governor’s mansion routinely switches back-and-forth from Republican to Democratic control, is expected to deliver Democrats a win in November’s general election.

Dissatisfaction with Christie’s time in office, which has been marred by scandal in a state where Democrats dominate the legislature and the governor’s mansion routinely switches back-and-forth from Republican to Democratic control, is expected to deliver Democrats a win in November’s general election.

A Democratic victory in the New Jersey governor’s race would pave the way for the party to enact a progressive agenda statewide with few obstacles apart from a state financial shortfall so dire that one former governor once called it “beyond comprehension,” and the potential for party in-fighting since Democrats are expected to retain control of the legislature.

“Democrats fully expect to win in November, and I think are looking forward to being able to resolve certain state issues that have reached a stalemate because of Christie’s opposition,” said Ben Dworkin, the director of the Rebovich Institute for New Jersey Politics at Rider University.___
