Judge Gorsuch: In His Own Words

Prezados  Amigos e Conhecidos,

Vejam como é diferente  o nível Profissional e Moral  do Candidato indicado pelo Presidente dos USA, bem como o número de reuniões e "exames" que o Candidato é exposto para poder atingir a função de Juíz  da Suprema Corte. 

Bem diferente  do ritual  daqui do Brasil.

Deixo aqui registrado que sou Societocrata Rapublicano, Patriota e Nacionalista Moderado e Independente como o Senador Americano Bernie Sanders. 

O apoio intelectual, no Campo da Socilogia e da Moral Positivas, ao atual Governo Americano, vai depender do assunto, para poder  receber o Nosso modesto Apoio ou Não.

Sei que o Departamento de Estado dos US é que orientam as políticas externas, que podem  induzir ideias e ações muitas vezes inadequadas  aos interesses do Povo Brasileiro. 

Este canal, pode facilitar a defesa de nossos interesses; com muita cautela e com grande perseverança; porque coragem não nos falta.   

Saúde, com Respeito e Fraternidade

Paulo Augusto Lacaz

       Yesterday, Judge Neil Gorsuch began his 4-day hearing to become the next Justice of the Supreme Court. After months of meeting with 72 Senators from both sides of the aisle and creating a lasting impression on lawmakers and media alike, Judge Gorsuch will finally get his chance to show exactly what kind of asset he will be to our Supreme Court.

Judge Gorsuch has spent his career fighting for plaintiffs and defendants alike, carefully applying the law to each situation, and staying clear of any kind of politics or favoritism. In 2005, after a successful career as an attorney in private practice, Judge Gorsuch devoted his time to serving his country as Principal Deputy Associate Attorney General at the Justice Department. There, he continued to serve the needs of the American people in civil litigation. 

Several of Judge Gorsuch’s opinions are well known for their style, steadfast commitment to constitutional principles, and the fundamental principle of equal justice for all. In one opinion, he warned, “something distinct, different, and more problematic [is] afoot when the government selectively infringes on a fundamental right.” 

President Donald J. Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch because he knew he would embody all the qualities of the late, great, Justice Antonin Scalia; equal justice under the law, steadfast commitment to constitutional principles, and justice aside from people or politics. A strong and knowledgeable Supreme Court is essential to our country’s success. To that end, we must have the most qualified jurists on the bench—people like Judge Gorsuch.

Trump 2018 Budget Proposal: What We Know (And Don't Know)

The following is a guest post by Laurie Garrett, senior fellow for global health at the Council on Foreign Relations. The following information is compiled by Laurie and her research associate Gabriella Meltzer.

On March 16, 2017, President Donald J. Trump released his budget proposal, which overall enormously increases spending for the Departments of Defense (+$54 billion or +9 percent), Homeland Security (+7 percent) and Veterans’ Affairs (+6 percent), slashing nearly every other non-entitlement program in the federal government.

Though the White House refers to its 2018 budget plan as a “blueprint,” rather than a formal budget request to Congress, Trump’s proposal has caused considerable consternation in the foreign assistance, development, global health and scientific research communities, all of which would experience severe funding reductions. Scientific research, humanitarian assistance, famine relief, programs to address maternal and child survival—such broad efforts are typically funded through more than one agency in the United States government, which may disperse monies bilaterally to needy governments, through United Nations agencies, or to large multinational groups, such as the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, or the World Bank.

We have attempted to sort out the likely impact of the Trump administration proposal, although it was not delivered in formal budget format. Several crucial foreign assistance programs were not mentioned, and others’ cuts were only vaguely described. For example, the Trump blueprint indicates that the White House favors large reductions in United States support for the United Nations, but does not stipulate specifically how much would be cut, or which agencies might experience significant reductions, save noting declining support for peacekeeping operations.

Meanwhile, the Republican leadership in Congress has incorporated a $1 billion cut in prevention services at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in its proposed American Health Care Act. The services affected would include immunization programs and global health security efforts aimed at staving off outbreaks in foreign countries. The White House plan would, in contrast, add $500 million to the CDC, to be distributed to the fifty states, for disease preparedness and emergency response. It is not clear how these seemingly opposite drives might sort out.

Though many global health, development, and humanitarian organizations around the world have panicked in reaction to the White House budget scheme, it would be wise to view the plan as a starting point for Washington debate. The White House has staked its position, which boils down to severe reductions, in some cases out-right eliminations, of a long list of scientific, soft power, and humanitarian programs. Crucially, the cuts do not include overseas programs that specifically target child vaccination, HIV, TB or malaria. Members of Congress are now responding to the Trump Administration scheme, in some cases questioning the entire approach to soft power and diplomatic elimination. It is reasonable to presume a vigorous debate will unfold this spring. The lobbying on behalf of efforts targeted for reduction in the White House plan has already commenced.

Budget relevance to diplomatic affairs, global health and development, science, biomedical research, public health responses to outbreaks, and overseas epidemics:

Trump’s Misguided National Security Budget: Every Problem is Not a Nail

President Trump’s unapologetic “hard power” budget reveals an alarming ignorance about the threats to U.S. national security and ...


Dear Mr. Richard Trumka

In the primaries you started by supporting Senator Bernie Sanders - then during the primaries you changed sides; Supported Hillary Clinton - that was your mistake. In a dispute between Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders would surely be the President of the USA; And we would never go through this terrible step.

assunto:The first horrible step

Paulo Augusto,
All attention in Congress right now is focused on the awful health care plan put forward by extremist Republicans. But Congress also is moving fast to pass three bills that would take away the rights of working people in the federal government to have a collective voice on the job.
These bills—H.R. 1259, H.R. 1364 and H.R. 1461—are a blatant attempt to undermine the ability of federal employees to do their jobs effectively to best serve veterans and other taxpayers.
Anti-union Republicans pushing these bills think they can get away with this because they think no one’s paying attention. But we are and we need to speak out now!
These bills could be the first horrible step in the anti-union campaign of some politicians—unless we stop them.
Here’s what these bills would do:
  • Remove protections and gut the pensions of workers who are wrongfully fired, harassed or intimidated by managers;
  • Make it more difficult for employees to work with managers to address issues on the job;
  • Gives Veterans Affairs officials the power to take back compensation employees have earned;
  • Lets management at the VA have the upper hand by radically shortening the time unfairly fired VA workers have to prepare their cases; and
  • Limits the time unfairly fired workers can appeal to just seven days.
Federal employees need to be able to do their jobs so our kids can get a good education, our parks can stay open, our veterans can get the care they need and our communities can be safe.
In Solidarity,
Richard Trumka
