Celebrating Women’s Equality Day, 2014

Etched into the history of our Nation are the stories of women who fought for the America they knew was possible — a country where all are truly treated equally and have access to the ballot box, regardless of gender. It took generations of fearless women who organized and advocated to secure women’s right to vote, and on Women’s Equality Day, we honor these courageous heroes, celebrate how far we have come in the decades since, and acknowledge the work still left to be done.

 

In the 94 years since the 19th Amendment was certified, women have made strides in every facet of American life, and we have learned that our country succeeds when women succeed. More and more the world is looking to our daughters to lead us, to heal us, to employ us, to thrill us on fields of play, and to protect us on fields of battle. Even still, inequality and discrimination persist. Women, on average, continue to earn less than their male counterparts, and for women of color, the disparity is even wider. Outdated workplace policies force too many working parents to choose between fulfilling their family responsibilities, and the careers of their dreams. And far too many women know what it is to suffer from abuse or sexual assault.

Happy 98th Birthday to the National Park Service

 

 

From our spacious skies and fruited plains to our purple mountain majesties, the United States boasts some of the world’s most breathtaking natural lands. On August 25, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson created the National Park Service to formally protect and preserve these lands so people all over the world could experience America’s historic beauty and heritage for years to come.

 

Today, the National Park Service manages 401 national parks and memorials, which supported 238,000 jobs and pumped more than $26 billion into local economies last year. In fact, for every $1 we invest in our national parks, our economy sees $10 in return.

 

Take a glimpse at what the National Park Service has been working to preserve for 98 years, and follow the National Park Service and the U.S. Department of Interior on Twitter to see more of what makes America so beautiful.

More recently, protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, and all around the United States are furious over the police shooting of yet another unarmed black man — Michael Brown. AJ+ takes a look back at some of the most infamous police brutality cases that inform us now.

Officer Wilson supporters: Government and media choosing sides in Ferguson
(CNN) – The funeral for 18-year-old Michael Brown Monday drew thousands, including celebrities, civil rights leaders, and a White House delegation.
But for those seeking justice for the officer who killed Brown, the service was seen as another example of how the government and media are unfairly choosing sides in that deadly confrontation.
This weekend, supporters of Officer Darren Wilson gathered outside a south city St. Louis bar, popular with local law enforcement.
“My name is Darren Wilson. We are Darren Wilson,” a woman said to a cheering crowd.

 

 

 

“There Will Be Justice”: Mourners Speak Outside Michael Brown’s Funeral in St. Louis

 

Published on Aug 26, 2014

http://www.democracynow.org – Thousands of people lined up to pay their respects at Michael Brown’s funeral on Monday in St. Louis, Missouri. The killing of the 18-year-old African American by a white police officer in Ferguson has sparked weeks of protest and conversations about race, both around the country and in the local community. Democracy Now!’s Aaron Maté was in St. Louis and spoke with mourners as they filed into the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church. “I know about Martin Luther King, I know about Emmett Till, but I am actually living something that should have stopped years and years ago,” says local resident Anne Hamilton. “We just want, as African Americans, to be treated fairly and to be given the same advantages.” St. Louis resident Elwood Harris responds to the protests, which have at times involved looting. “What else can we do? We took the Martin Luther King approach, protesting and peace, but there is no peace, and there is no justice,” Harris says. “But there will be justice in this case, I really do believe.”

This afternoon, aboard Air Force One, President Obama placed separate telephone calls to President Poroshenko of Ukraine and Prime Minister Najib of Malaysia to discuss the tragic crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.

 

Here’s a readout of the President’s call with President Poroshenko of Ukraine:

 

President Obama spoke with Ukrainian President Poroshenko this afternoon to discuss the tragic crash of flight Malaysian Airlines 17. President Poroshenko welcomed the assistance of international investigators to ensure a thorough and transparent investigation of the crash site. President Obama assured him that U.S. experts will offer all possible assistance immediately. The Presidents emphasized that all evidence from the crash site must remain in place on the territory of Ukraine until international investigators are able to examine all aspects of the tragedy.

 

And a readout of President Obama’s call with Prime Minister Najib of Malaysia:

 

President Obama called Malaysian Prime Minister Najib today to express condolences to the people of Malaysia for the terrible loss of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in Ukraine, as well as all the families who lost loved ones in this tragic event. The President told the Prime Minister that United States has offered immediate assistance to support a prompt international investigation. President Obama reaffirmed the strength of the friendship between the United States and Malaysia and underscored that the United States stands ready to provide any assistance or support necessary.

This afternoon, President Obama traveled to the Port of Wilmington in Delaware to talk about creating jobs, rebuilding America, and making our middle class stronger.

 

Before delivering his remarks, however, the President took a moment to discuss the tragic crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17:

 

Right now, we’re working to determine whether there were American citizens onboard. That is our first priority.  And I’ve directed my national security team to stay in close contact with the Ukrainian government.  The United States will offer any assistance we can to help determine what happened and why.  And as a country, our thoughts and prayers are with all the families of the passengers, wherever they call home.

 

The President Talks About the Economy in Delaware

 

Published on Jul 17, 2014

At the Port of Wilmington in Delaware, President Obama delivers remarks on the economy, July 17, 2014.

 

 

After acknowledging some of the officials in attendance — including Delaware Gov. Jack Markell, Sen. Chris Coons, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew — President Obama talked a bit about the nearby Interstate 495 Bridge.

 

Noting that the bridge used to carry 90,000 cars a day, the President explained that it’s been closed for repairs since last month — repairs that will make it safer, and more reliable for commuters and commerce. And TIGER Grants are enabling the Port of Wilmington to rebuild a wharf, which will allow it to compete with other ports for the largest cargo ships.

 

Today, the President delivered remarks at the Port of Wilmington in front of the I-495 Bridge in Delaware.

Discussing how much the economy has rebounded over the past few years, the President explained that we’ve got a “huge opportunity to keep this momentum going…but also to make sure that growth is broadly shared.” And one example is by creating those good jobs rebuilding America.

 

We know that in the 21st century economy, businesses are going to set up shop wherever they find the best roads, the best bridges, the fastest Internet connection, the fastest rail lines, the smartest airports, the best power grid. First-class infrastructure attracts investment and it creates first-class jobs. Unfortunately, right now, our investment in transportation lags behind a lot of other countries. China is doing more. Germany is doing more. They’re putting money back into building the infrastructure we need to grow over the long term.

 

And if Washington were working the way it was supposed to, Congress would be creating jobs right now … jobs like these guys in the hard hats are doing right now rebuilding bridges and roads and airports and ports all across the country. It helps us now and it helps us create jobs tomorrow. That’s what we should be doing.

 

Earlier this year, President Obama put together a plan to rebuild America’s transportation infrastructure over the long term. As he noted today, the plan would “support millions of jobs, [and] would give cities and states and private investors the certainty they need to hire more workers faster.” And it wouldn’t add to the deficit, as it would be paid for in part by closing tax loopholes for companies that are shipping their profits overseas.

 

President Barack Obama speaks about transportation and an initiative to increase private sector investment in national infrastructure, at the Port of Wilmington in Wilmington, Delaware, near the Interstate 495 Bridge. The federal government is helping pay for repairs to the bridge, which state officials ordered closed on an emergency basis last month because several supporting columns were tilting.

The federal government is helping pay for repairs to the bridge, which state officials ordered closed on an emergency basis last month because several supporting columns were tilting.

 

We got $2 trillion worth of deferred maintenance in this country in roads and bridges and sewer systems and water mains. And we could put a lot of people back to work right now getting that done. And we’re going to have to do it eventually anyway.

 

But so far, Congress has refused to act on the idea — which is strange because infrastructure should not be a partisan issue. If you think about it, it was a Republican, Dwight Eisenhower, who built the Interstate Highway System. Lincoln built the Transcontinental Railroad. Both parties historically have understood that investing in this country for the long run pays off. When we invest in infrastructure we’re making sure that the economy is growing not just for the next five years, but for another century. That’s what right now Republicans in Congress don’t seem to be focused on. But until they do get focused on it, I’m going to do whatever I can to create jobs rebuilding America on my own.

 

The President also announced the launch of the Build America Investment Initiative, a government-wide initiative to increase infrastructure investment and economic growth:

 

As part of [the initiative], we’re creating a one-stop shop for cities and states looking to partner with the private sector to fund infrastructure projects.  There are lots of investors who want to back infrastructure projects because, when it’s done right, they then get a steady, long-term investment.  They get a steady return.

 

And lots of states and local governments would welcome more private investment, but they need a partner in the federal government to help do some matchmaking and work through some of the complexities of private financing of infrastructure.  So my administration is going to help states and cities apply for federal loans, get more public-private partnerships up and running, get more investment flowing into communities like Wilmington.

 

The President will sign a Presidential Memorandum to launch the Build America Investment Initiative, a government-wide initiative to increase infrastructure investment and economic growth by engaging with state and local governments and private sector investors.

The President will sign a Presidential Memorandum to launch the Build America Investment Initiative, a government-wide initiative to increase infrastructure investment and economic growth by engaging with state and local governments and private sector investors.

 

And this builds on other actions we’ve taken to speed up the permitting process for big projects, and attract new manufacturing jobs to America, and raise more workers’ wages, help women fight for fair pay, ease loan burdens for millions of students.  We’re taking steps on our own, still hoping that Congress at some point actually does something.

We’ve been talking a lot recently about the need to rebuild and strengthen our nation’s infrastructure. As the President has made clear, a world-class infrastructure system is a vital part of a top-performing economy.

 

But there’s another important reason why we need to rebuild our infrastructure: climate change.

 

Communities across America need more resilient infrastructure that can withstand the impacts of climate change — like more extreme weather and increased flooding. That’s part of the reason why the President established the State, Local, and Tribal Leaders Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience last November.

 

The Task Force, made up of 26 governors, mayors, and county and tribal officials from across the country, advises the President on how the federal government can best help American communities dealing with the effects of climate change. Today, the Task Force came to the White House for their fourth and final meeting, and will give the President final recommendations this fall.

Armed Bank Robbery, High-Speed Chase Leave 3 Dead in California

 

Published on Jul 16, 2014

Stockton police late Wednesday said a second suspect has died after a bank robbery and gunbattle that led to the death of a hostage.

 

Police said that in all, three people are dead from the violence, which included a high-speed chase that left cars and houses riddled with bullets.

 

One of the people killed was a hostage, and the other two were suspects in the robbery, according to police.The violence began at 2 p.m. when officers responded to a call of a robbery at a Bank of the West branch in north Stockton. Arriving officers spotted three men walking three female hostages from the bank. The robbers stole a bank employee’s SUV and a pursuit started, Stockton police Officer Joe Silva said.

 

Cellphone footage taken by a driver captured the moments when more than a dozen police cars were in pursuit of the bank robbers.

 

During the chase that lasted 45 minutes and spanned several miles, one of the hostages was thrown from the SUV and was taken to a hospital with a gunshot wound, Silva said. The pursuit continued as gunfire continued to erupt from the SUV, he said. Police cars and homes along the robbers’ path were peppered with gunshots.”In my 18 years of law enforcement, I’ve never seen anything like this in the city of Stockton,” Silva said, adding that no officers were injured.

 

A second hostage was later thrown from the vehicle, and officers tending to her found she had suffered a grazing bullet wound, Silva said.

 

As the SUV came to a stop, officers exchanged gunfire with someone inside the vehicle. When it was all over, a hostage and one of the robbers was dead, Silva said. Besides the first hostage thrown from the vehicle, at least two other people were hospitalized.Witnesses said the shootout that brought the episode to a close looked like a war.

 

“I could see the car getting blasted,” witness Manuel Gallegos said. “I can see all the little sparks and everything off the car, and actually there was a police car right in front of our house shooting in that direction.”

 

Jose Maldonado, who said he saw the robbers taking the women out of the bank, said the men had rifles that looked like AK-47s slung over their shoulders and they didn’t seem to care that there were police all around.

 

“They were not afraid. They weren’t going to take no for an answer. These poor women, they were screaming, they were so distraught, so scared,” Maldonado said.

 

 

Where the hell were all the “good guys with guns” the NRAssholes speak of? No “good guys with guns” were present….musta been off at the local Home Depot…armed, patrolling the lumber section.

HORROR: 295 Dead as Missile at Russia border Shoots down Malaysia Boeing MH17

 

Published on Jul 17, 2014

WATCH: Malaysia Airlines plane shot down in Ukraine near Russian border
(NYDaily News) BREAKING: The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 reportedly had 280 passengers and 15 crew members when it went down in a war-torn region of Ukraine.

 

A Malaysia Airlines passenger plane was reportedly shot down in Ukraine near the Russian border Thursday.
The Boeing 777 had 280 passengers and 15 crew members, Interfax reported citing an an aviation industry source.

 

Anton Gerashenko, an adviser to Ukraine’s Interior Minister, said on Facebook that the plane was flying at an altituse of 33,000 feet when it was hit by a missile fired from a Buk launcher.
It came down just 20 miles short of entering Russian airspace near the town of Shakhtyorsk, in an area where the Ukrainian government has been fighting pro-Russian rebels.

 

It “began to drop, afterwards it was found burning on the ground on Ukrainian territory,” a unidentified source told Reuters.
Flight Aware shows the flight was heading from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, the main international airport in the Netherlands, to Kuala Lumpur International Airport outside Kuala Lumpur, the most populous city of Malaysia.

 

The flight reportedly departed at 12:14 a.m. local time.

 

The crash comes a little more than four months after Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 lost contact with air traffic control less than an hour after takeoff from Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

 

The aircraft, also a Boeing 777, was carrying 227 passengers and 12 Malaysian crew members.
The airline issued a public statement an hour after the flight was expected to arrive in China.

 

The subsequent search efforts, which involved multiple governments, expanded to more than 60,000 square miles and soared to become the most expensive in history.

Malaysia Airlines confirmed it lost contact with the flight.

President Obama Gives the Commencement Address at Worcester Tech in Massachusetts

 

 

 

This afternoon, President Obama traveled to Worcester, Massachusetts to deliver the commencement address at Worcester Technical High School.

 

In his remarks, the President congratulated the graduates on their accomplishments, letting them know that they stand out among other high schools across the country:

 

I’m here today because there is nothing ordinary about Worcester Tech or the Class of 2014.  You have set yourselves apart.  This high school has set itself apart.

Over the past four years, some of you have learned how to take apart an engine and put it back together again.  Some of you have learned how to run a restaurant, or build a house, or fix a computer.  And all of you are graduating today not just with a great education, but with the skills that will let you start your careers and skills that will make America stronger.

“The thing I really want to do,” he said, “is make sure that what we’ve learned here at this high school we can lift up for the entire nation. I want the nation to learn from Worcester Tech.”

A Step Toward Cleaner Air and Healthier Communities

 

 

Last week, the Environmental Protection Agency released a vital component of the President’s Climate Action Plan – proposed common-sense carbon pollution standards for existing power plants. Since air pollution from power plants can worsen asthma and other breathing problems, EPA’s guidelines will help protect the health of vulnerable Americans, including children and the elderly.

 

In a big step forward, yesterday the American Medical Association’s House of Delegates, a body representing more than 500 medical associations and organizations, voted to formally reaffirm their support for carbon pollution standards for power plants and committed to submit comments on the EPA’s proposal underscoring the need to keep strong standards that protect public health. AMA’s vote puts them alongside other public health organizations that have taken leadership on this issue, including the American Thoracic Society and the American Lung Association.

 

In addition to cutting carbon emissions from the power sector by about 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2030, EPA’s plan will also decrease that sector’s emissions of particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur dioxide by about 25 percent. From the soot and smog reductions alone, for every dollar invested through the Clean Power Plan, American families will see up to $7 in health benefits.

 

In the first year that these standards go into effect, up to 100,000 asthma attacks and up to 2,100 heart attacks will be prevented. These standards will also help more kids to be healthy enough to show up to school – with up to 72,000 fewer absences in the first year. The benefits increase each year from there.

President Obama: “There’s No Advanced, Developed Country on Earth That Would Put Up with This”

 

 

 

During yesterday’s Tumblr Q&A at the White House, the President answered a question on the epidemic of gun violence in America.

 

“My biggest frustration so far,” he said, “is the fact that this society has not been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people who can do just unbelievable damage.” Talking about the increasing frequency of school shootings across the country, the President noted that the U.S. is the only developed country where this is routine.

 

“The country has to do some soul-searching about this,” President Obama said. “This is becoming the norm, and we take it for granted in ways that, as a parent, are terrifying to me.”

 

He also stressed that the only thing that is going to reverse this alarming trend is public opinion. “If public opinion does not demand change in Congress, it will not change.”

 

Until there is a fundamental shift in public opinion in which people say, enough, this is not acceptable, this is not normal, this isn’t sort of the price we should be paying for our freedom, that we can have respect for the Second Amendment and responsible gun owners and sportsmen and hunters can have the ability to possess weapons but that we are going to put some commonsense rules in place that make a dent, at least, in what’s happening — until that is not just the majority of you — because that’s already the majority of you, even the majority of gun owners believe that. But until that’s a view that people feel passionately about and are willing to go after folks who don’t vote reflecting those values, until that happens, sadly, not that much is going to change.

 

President Obama noted that he has issued more than 20 executive actions this year to try to tighten up some of the rules in the law, but it’s not possible to get even the slightest restrictions through Congress right now, “and we should be ashamed of that.”

#LunchWithFLOTUS: The First Lady’s Twitter Q&A on Healthy School Lunches

 

 

Today, millions of kids across America are eating better school meals because of healthier lunch standards from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Thanks to the hard work of school chefs and food service workers around the country, 90 percent of our schools are now meeting modern nutrition standards — and the USDA is working to provide greater flexibility and more assistance to help the remaining schools catch up.

 

As part of her Let’s Move! initiative, First Lady Michelle Obama has helped raise awareness around the importance of our kids eating healthy and getting the nutrition they need — and now she’s taking to Twitter to answer your questions.

 

Tomorrow, Thursday, June 12, at 2:30 p.m. ET, join the First Lady for a Twitter Q&A on school nutrition and healthy school lunches on her Twitter handle, @FLOTUS.

 

Here are the details:

 

  • Ask your questions now and during the live event on Twitter with the hashtag #LunchWithFLOTUS
  • Follow the Q&A live through the @FLOTUS Twitter handle
  • If you miss the live Q&A, the full session will be posted on WhiteHouse.gov and Storify.com/whitehouse

 

Learn more about the First Lady’s initiative to encourage healthy eating at Letsmove.gov/eat-healthy, and then join the First Lady for a Twitter chat on @FLOTUS on Thursday, June 12 at 2:30 p.m. ET.

 

Upcoming Guidance for First Lady Michelle Obama

Thursday, June 12, 2014

 

Washington, DC * 3:30 PM – The First Lady will join local students and school nutrition directors from across the country to harvest the summer crop from the White House Kitchen Garden.  In 2009, Mrs. Obama planted a vegetable garden on the South Lawn to initiate a national conversation around the health and wellbeing of our nation—a conversation that evolved into her Let’s Move! initiative.  Since Mrs. Obama launched Let’s Move! in 2010, parents, business leaders, educators, elected officials, military leaders, chefs, physicians, athletes, childcare providers, community and faith leaders, and kids themselves have stepped up to improve the health of our nation’s children.  And thanks to these efforts, we are moving toward a healthier new norm all across the country.

 

To help with this summer’s harvest, the First Lady invited local school children whose schools are successfully implementing national school lunch standards.  Children from these Washington, D.C. schools joined Mrs. Obama in April for the spring garden planting and will now have the opportunity to harvest the produce they recently planted:

 

  • Cleveland Elementary School
  • Friendship Public Charter School
  • Kimball Elementary School
  • Bancroft Elementary School
  • Harriet Tubman Elementary School

 

Mrs. Obama is also inviting school nutrition directors from Orlando, FL, Dallas, TX, and West Virginia to participate in the harvest.  These school nutrition directors have seen success in their new school lunch programs thanks to the standards put in place by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act.  Today, thanks to the hard work of school chefs, food service providers, and school nutrition directors across the country, 90 percent of schools are now meeting modern nutrition standards, including the schools in attendance at the harvest.  Because of these improvements, consumption of fruits, vegetables and whole grains has significantly increased, and over 600,000 kids are now getting a nutritious breakfast.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture has provided greater flexibility and is working to give more assistance to help the remaining schools meet these standards.

 

The following school nutrition directors will participate in this summer’s garden harvest:

 

  • Lora Gilbert, MS, RD, FADA, SNS, Senior Director, Food and Nutrition Services, Orange County Public Schools, Orlando, FL
  • Richard Goff, MBA, Executive Director, Office of Child Nutrition, West Virginia Department of Education
  • Dora Rivas, MS, RDN, SNS, Executive Director, Food and Child Nutrition Services Department, Dallas Independent School

 

This event will be livestreamed at www.whitehouse.gov/live.

Thoughts on Fatherhood in the 21st Century

 

 

This was originally posted on the Huffington Post, and is part of a series of essays about the issues facing working families in the 21st century, leading up to the White House Summit on Working Families on June 23, 2014.

Growing up, if I wanted to play catch, I often had to play it alone. Sometimes I’d even aim at a tree for lack of person with a glove at the other end of the yard. I admit, the tree wasn’t a very good replacement. But when you’re a kid — and you don’t have a dad to play catch with — you’ll toss a ball at anything. Even if that thing is a 40-foot-tall oak and unlikely to toss the ball back.

 

In this respect, I’m probably not unique. Far too many children grow up without a dad in their lives, like I did. And for many, the effects cut deeper and last longer than being forced to have a one-way game of catch.

 

I’m a father now. My daughter was born 10 years ago, and my son soon after. And one of my greatest challenges, having never grown up with a father myself, is figuring out what a dad is supposed to do. I got the memo about taking out the garbage. And I change more light bulbs than Thomas Edison. But when it comes to preparing your kids for the slings and arrows of life, that’s something I’ve only learned about fairly recently.

 

And here’s the key: I only learned about it because I was able to make the time.

Thank you so much Richard for that kind welcome.  And, to my good friends and former colleagues— Michele Flournoy and Kurt Campbell— I can’t help but note how well-rested you both look.  I’m only a little bitter.  Still, I want to thank you for your stellar service to our country both from inside government and now, again, as leading thinkers on national security.

 

CNAS, which you founded, does a remarkable job of preparing our next generation of national security leaders.  That work is critical, because our nation needs bright, dedicated young women and men who care deeply about our world.  We need a diverse pipeline of talent ready and eager to carry forward the mantle of American leadership.  So, thank you all.

 

As President Obama told West Point’s graduating class two weeks ago, the question is not whether America will lead the world in the 21st century, but how America will lead.  No other nation can match the enduring foundations of our strength.  Our military has no peer.  Our formidable economy is growing.  We are more energy independent each year.  Our vibrant and diverse population is demographically strong and productive.  We attract hopeful immigrants from all over the world.  Our unrivaled global network of alliances and partnerships makes us the one nation to which the world turns when challenges arise.  So, American leadership is and will remain central to shaping a world that is freer, more secure, more just and more prosperous.

 

su_2407064b

 

At West Point, President Obama outlined how America will lead in a world that is more complex and more interdependent than ever before.  As we move out of a period dominated by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, we will lead by drawing on every element of our national power.  That power starts with our unparalleled military might, used wisely and when necessary to defend America’s core interests – the security of our citizens, our economy, and our allies.  We will lead by strengthening effective partnerships to counter an evolving terrorist threat.  We will lead by rallying coalitions and marshaling the resources of our partners to address regional and global challenges.  And, we will lead by standing firm in defense of human dignity and equality, while steering the course of history toward greater justice and opportunity for all.
