PEN America has announced that Hillary Clinton will deliver the closing lecture at this year’s PEN World Voices Festival, capping off a week of events dedicated to the theme “Resist and Reimagine” and featuring more than 165 writers of over 50 nationalities.

Mrs. Clinton, who served as Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013, will deliver the Arthur Miller Freedom to Write Lecture on April 22 at the Great Hall at Cooper Union in Manhattan.

The speech, according to a news release, “will draw on her experience as the nation’s top diplomat and her career in politics to underline the centrality of free speech — broadly defined and vociferously defended — in sustaining healthy democracies and vibrant societies.”

After the lecture, Mrs. Clinton will be joined onstage by the Nigerian-born novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (who delivered the lecture in 2015) for a dialogue about the future of women and girls around the world.

State Department officials have been ordered to pare back passages in a soon-to-be-released annual report on global human rights that traditionally discuss women’s reproductive rights and discrimination, according to five former and current department officials.

The directive calls for stripping passages that describe societal views on family planning, including how much access women have to contraceptives and abortion.

A broader section that chronicles racial, ethnic and sexual discrimination has also been ordered pared down, the current and former officials said.

The move, believed to have been ordered by a top aide to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, reflects the Trump administration’s rightward turn from the Obama administration on family planning issues. It also appears to highlight the stated desire of Tillerson and President Donald Trump to make human rights a lower priority in U.S. foreign policy.

File this under “you can’t make this stuff up.”


Bernie Sanders on Wednesday blamed Hillary Clinton for not doing more to stop the Russian attack on the last presidential election. Then his 2016 campaign manager, in an interview with POLITICO, said he’s seen no evidence to support special counsel Robert Mueller’s assertion in an indictment last week that the Russian operation had backed Sanders’ campaign.

The remarks showed Sanders, running for a third term and currently considered a front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, deeply defensive in response to questions posed to him about what was laid out in the indictment. He attempted to thread a response that blasts Donald Trump for refusing to acknowledge that Russians helped his campaign — but then holds himself harmless for a nearly identical denial.

In doing so, Sanders and his former campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, presented a series of self-serving statements that were not accurate, and that track with efforts by Trump and his supporters to undermine the credibility of the Mueller probe.

Theatre of the Absurd at its best! Who was the sole 2016 candidate talking about Russian meddling?

Setting the Record Straight on the 17 Intel Agencies

July 7, 2017 by still4hill

Just to keep the record straight, here are the 17 intel agencies that we have been hearing about since Hillary Clinton brought them up during one of the debates.

I am not particularly worried about Bernie running in 2020. I asked this question and got this answer.

Q: How many public high schools are there in Vermont?

A: There are 149 high schools in Vermont, made up of 83 public schools and 66 private schools. Vermont ranks as the 50th state in terms of student enrollment and 48th in terms of total number of schools. It ranks 2nd for the student/teacher ratio and sits 8th for the percentage of students on free or reduced lunches.
high-schools.com/directory/vt/

This may not sound like a lot of high schools but bear in mind that the population of Vermont is 623,657 (2017) as opposed to 8,537,673 (2016) in New York City. That works out to 7.3% of the population of NYC.

Sometimes the oddest, most random stars align.

The Stoneman Douglas students and their allies among high school students nationwide will, I am confident, make sure the VT high school students know about Bernie’s connections to and donations from the NRA as well as his voting record on gun control. They will make sure eligible students register and vote. I am pretty sure he is not long for the Senate in this respect much less the Oval Office.

Blame Hillary? Give me a break! Jeff Weaver? Give me another break!

The kids are all right. They’ve got this now. It’s not the revolution Bernie imagined. But it is a revolution. In fact, it is not even partisan! It is positional. Where do you stand on AR-15s? That is their question. Heads will roll in November. It is very premature to talk about 2020.

From one who knows how smears work.

Parkland students and all students who are demonstrating for school safety are the new generation of leaders. They are going to vote. They are going to make sure their friends and family vote. They are going to run for office. I am going to vote for them. They are smart, articulate, and determined. They are going to win! They are a testament to our public school system held in much disdain by the Secretary of Education who grinned her way through heartbreaking testimony today.

As far as this idea is concerned, #WeCallBS!

Statement

Hillary and I are saddened by the passing of our friend Billy Graham, one of the most important religious leaders in American history. His powerful words and the conviction they carried touched countless hearts and minds.

I will never forget the first time I saw him, 60 years ago in Little Rock, during the school integration struggle. He filled a football stadium with a fully integrated audience, reminding them that we all come before God as equals, both in our imperfection and our absolute claim to amazing grace.

Later as Governor, in the White House, and afterward, I saw him live that faith fully in the constant kindness, encouragement, and counsel he extended to Hillary and me.

Billy has finished his long good race, leaving our world a better place and claiming his place in glory.
