President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were in Harlem, New York on Thursday to honor the legendary Dr. Maya Angelou days before the release of a new documentary on the late poet’s life and legacy.
The Clintons spoke onstage at The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, which was recently designated a national historic museum, at an event celebrating release of the documentary, “American Masters ― Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise.” The film, which debuts on PBS on Tuesday, delivers a remarkable inside look at who Angelou was as well as her impact and influence prior to and long after her May 2014 passing.

Folks at Grand Central Terminal in New York saw and heard Hillary at a Stamp Dedication for Oscar de la Renta, yesterday. It was a government event sponsored by the U.S. Postal Service. But at least one person in the White House in Washington DC seemed haunted by her presence there.
This is from the New York Times morning brief.
By CARL HULSE
President Trump is clearly obsessed with numbers — the size of his Electoral College win, the number of people at his inauguration, the tally of jobs he is helping keep in the United States. The list goes on.
Given his predilection for digits, here are a few interesting ones from his extremely unconventional news conference on Thursday.
2: The number of times he mentioned the name Acosta at an event that started with the announcement of R. Alexander Acosta as his new nominee for secretary of labor. The other time Mr. Trump mentioned the name was when he called on Jim Acosta of CNN and noted that in picking the other Acosta he had instructed his staff members to make sure the two were not related.
11: The number of times he mentioned Hillary Clinton, his vanquished opponent in last year’s election. Mr. Trump is either having a hard time getting past the election or simply likes to talk about it since he won and it is a fond memory. The repeated references were to Mrs. Clinton receiving hints of debate questions ahead of time — a continuing sore subject — and her dealings with Russia while secretary of state, including a proposed reset “with a stupid plastic button that made us all look like a bunch of jerks.”
The press conference in which these references occurred was notable for its lack of focus and organization, belligerent, incoherent, rambling style, and its contradictions – a primary tool of gaslighting.
e.g. 1) As he ranted and raved: “Tomorrow, they will say, ‘Donald Trump rants and raves at the press.’ I’m not ranting and raving.”
2) After declaring himself the least racist person, he confronted April Ryan (a 20-year White House press veteran who is African-American) who asked if he would meet with the CBC (Congressional Black Caucus – the initials of which he did not recognize) with “Do you want to arrange it? Are they friends of yours?”
The hour-and-a-quarter tirade was marked by a preoccupation with stats, polls, and vote counts, an obsession with perceived false reportage ( “The leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake because so much of the news is fake…The reporting is fake.”), and a marked inability to let go of his campaign or his adversary in that campaign whose name he invoked at odd intervals in the course of the event (in a few cases with bogus stories, i.e. “fake news”) and who was in New York minding her own business and honoring her late friend.

It’s Fashion Week in New York, and Hillary’s personal style is having an effect on the runways.
At New York Fashion Week, pantsuits for all!
She may not have won the election, but remarkably, Hillary Clinton, pilloried for her appearance her entire public life, has become a fashion trendsetter.The 2016 presidential candidate could very well be the inspiration for New York Fashion Week’s most pervasive fall 2017 trend, the pantsuit, seen on nearly every runway so far, including Calvin Klein, Victoria Beckham and Gabriela Hearst. While the style has been a red carpet favorite of Emma Watson, Blake Lively and Evan Rachel Wood (the Westworld actress has made the look her new unofficial uniform), brands as disparate as Aussie babe fave Zimmermann, French club wear go-to Zadig & Voltaire and dresser-of-Indian-royalty Naeem Khan have also offered up pantsuit options for every occasion.Zimmermann
Meanwhile in L.A., Hillary supporter Dame Helen Mirren wore this to a premiere last night.
Among the events of the week was today’s First-Day-Of-Issue Oscar de la Renta Forever Stamp Dedication Ceremony at Grand Central Terminal where Hillary spoke.

If there is one thing Hillary Clinton is enjoying lately, it is the Great White Way. Audiences there are quick to spot her no matter how full the house.
Former presidential candidate visits Broadway for the second time in a month.
Former presidential candidate, Secretary of State and First Lady Hillary Clinton was greeted with cheers and a standing ovation February 15 at Broadway’s Palace Theatre where she came to see Glenn Close in Sunset Boulevard.
Clinton arrived at the theatre about three minutes before curtain, and was quickly recognized by the audience, which began cheering.
As the lights went down for the show to start, just as the audience quieted down, someone shouted “We love you, Hillary” and the crowd applauded through the beginning of the overture clearly in response to the shout-out.

Last Thursday, I mentioned the new administration’s tactic of choice, diversion. This week, thanks to George Lakoff, we have a handy diagram for the analysis of tweets from Trump.
So it comes as no surprise that while Trump lobbed a grenade at Nordstrom’s and while we were all attending to the ninth circuit court of appeals which upheld the stay on the immigration ban and the endless confirmation hearings, the explosions were happening elsewhere.
Last night and today, massive immigration raids were taking place in at least six states.
U.S. immigration authorities made a series of arrests in at least half a dozen states across the country on Thursday and Friday, sweeping up an unknown number of undocumented immigrants, immigration lawyers and advocates said.
The raids, which appeared to target scores of people, including those without criminal records, mark the first largescale episode of immigration enforcement inside the United States since President Trump’s Jan. 26 order to crack down on the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally. Immigration lawyers and advocates said some of the enforcement efforts included traffic stops and checkpoints, though Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials disputed those accounts, saying the agency does not use checkpoints while engaging in targeted enforcement operations.
These followed the very high profile deportation of an Arizona woman who had reported as required of her to a local ICE office.
Typically, while we attend to all of this, we are supposed to be distracted from the Russia story, but that one grew extra legs just this evening. It appears that U.S. investigators have been able to corroborate portions of the dossier we referred to last week as the Christopher Steele Memos.
Coupled with that one was this.
National security adviser Flynn discussed sanctions with Russian ambassador, despite denials, officials say
National security adviser Michael Flynn privately discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia with that country’s ambassador to the United States during the month before President Trump took office, contrary to public assertions by Trump officials, current and former U.S. officials said.
Flynn’s communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were interpreted by some senior U.S. officials as an inappropriate and potentially illegal signal to the Kremlin that it could expect a reprieve from sanctions that were being imposed by the Obama administration in late December to punish Russia for its alleged interference in the 2016 election.
This story, of course, is the elephant in the room. The Russian connection to the Trump campaign and White House impugns the integrity of the election and the intentions of the administration with regard to Russian sanctions, not only for alleged election hanky-panky but also those imposed over Russian incursions in Ukraine. It lends credence to the idea that Putin’s antipathy to Hillary Clinton’s candidacy was based on a lot more than a personality conflict and his idée-fixe that she somehow orchestrated mass demonstrations following the Russian parliamentary elections in 2011.
Deep Throat told Bob Woodward to follow the money. It is not hard to imagine that transactions involving Donald Trump might revolve around money. Alex Mohajer, late of Bros4Hillary, has constructed bulletin board worthy of Carrie Mathison from a series of interlocking documents. It is not complete, but is the best job of connecting the dots so far.
Alex Mohajer This morning
In light of Wash Post’s explosive article revealing Trump’s NSA Flynn contacted Russian officials BEFORE inauguration to discuss lifting sanctions, it’s getting harder to ignore growing evidence that Trump was involved with Russian oil deal.
From this, we can see what entities acquired those mysterious Rosneft shares even if principals behind it remain shrouded. it’s great detective work! We can be relatively sure Alex will not let this opus rest here, so we can be reasonably sure that he will elaborate as he finds additional evidence. We look forward to that.
As for Hillary, she has steered clear of the Russian story which she tried to expose at the October 19 presidential debate. She did, however, register a reaction to the court decision on Thursday. Touted as ultimate shade, her tweet was concise.
The thing never to ignore is that Trump and the Republicans are working as a team. Wherever the fireworks go off, look elsewhere. And watch this space.
