Congressman Doug Collins (R-GA): Adam Schiff Is Running The House Judiciary Committee More Than Chairman Jerry Nadler

 Cache   
Congressman Doug Collins (R-GA), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, joined Brian Kilmeade to discuss the letter Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler sent President Trump telling the President that he and his legal team are welcome to participate in the public impeachment hearings in the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, December 4. Collins said he is so disappointed in Chairman Nadler for convening next week's public hearing he can hardly put it into words. Collins does not yet know who the Republicans or Democrats plan on calling as witnesses at the hearing and believes nobody would fault President Trump if he does not send anyone on his behalf to participate in the hearing. When asked if his opinion has changed after recent reports that President Trump only released the aid to Ukraine after he was informed about the whistleblower, Collins said no because the President did not do anything wrong. Plus, Congressman Collins on being humbled by President Trump's support for him to be appointed to fill the seat being vacated by retiring Senator Johnny Isakson and reports that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) prefers Atlanta businesswoman and co-owner of the Atlanta Dream, Kelly Loeffler. Watch here: Full transcript below: Brian Kilmeade: Last week, I asked the ranking member, "Do you know what's going on with impeachment?" He said, "I don't know." I said, "Did you ask Jerry Nadler?" He said, "Yeah, he doesn't know." Now he knows. Joining us now, Congressman Doug Collins off the treadmill. Hi, Congressman. Doug Collins: Hi, Brian. How are you, bud? Brian Kilmeade: You were running this morning doing our show, right? Doug Collins: I did. I was out there running, get me through it. Got me through about three miles or so. Got to work off this Thanksgiving potbelly, here. Brian Kilmeade: Yeah. You have like zero percent body fat, but -- Doug Collins: Brian Kilmeade: -- now you're the ranking member. Can you tell our audience, Congressman, what we're going to be looking at next week? Doug Collins: Next week? I am so disappointed in Chairman Nadler; I can't even properly put words to it. But what we're going to see next week is the judiciary, where the Democrats promise would be a fair process for the president, for everybody involved, and to sort of handle the Schiff-show fiasco, is we're going to have next week, a made for television event in which you're going to have academics who are media commentators on other more liberal networks, typically, who are going to come on, and they're going to tell us, "Oh, well, this is possibly an impeachable offense.". Really, this is an affront to the American people. We've been waiting for what their determination as to what the president did wrong. We found nothing. And now we're going to use our valuable time to have academics tell us what they think an impeachable offense is. Why don't we actually have Adam Schiff? How do we have -- you have a fact witness who dealt with a whistleblower, his staff or others, coming under -- and testify under oath to what they actually knew and what they actually didn't know. This is a disgrace. But this is the way -- I mean, the whole thing is it is a smoke and mirrors because they have nothing on the president. Brian Kilmeade: So, Congressman, who you guys calling? Doug Collins: It looks like right now -- we're filming the final debate, but we've got one, I'll be able to -- we haven't announced yet, but I'll announce it later. But we have one more that's coming. Brian Kilmeade: Do you know who they are calling? Doug Collins: No. We haven't found out yet. But will if -- this is an interesting thing, Brian, do you realize that this is a rerun of the same basically hearing we had in June. Brian Kilmeade: No. Doug Collins: We've had this hearing before. We've had this hearing before, and, you know, but there's a difference here. And I think it's interesting to note and I sort of made this -- I made this, you know, discussion before. But what we saw with Mr. Goldman last week, what we see with, you know, Norm Eisen and Barry and the embassy in our committee, that paid consultants, what I call "Bring a Donor to Workday" and get to ask questions. If you're a large enough donor to the Democratic Party, you get to ask questions in a committee hearing. What we thought last week, and then we're going to see this week, it didn't allow their counsels to ask these questions, you know, and make it look like this formal proceeding to get to the president. But actually, I have a question. How is having academics talk about impeachment actually giving the president any way to question those who have accused him? It doesn't. And so, I think this is the problem we're having in this whole show is they don't know what to do. And it's almost as bad as last week when Jerry Nadler didn't know what he was doing. Now we know what he's doing, and he might as well just not have had anything. Brian Kilmeade: So, a letter from Nadler, here's an excerpt. "I'm hopeful that you and your counsel" -- meaning the president -- "will opt to participate in the committee hearing consistent with the rules of decorum and with the solemn nature of the work before us." So, they're asking the president to go. Should he? Doug Collins: I think that if the president wants to, he's more than welcome to come to this sideshow that we're going to have next week. If he doesn't send an attorney or someone from his legal counsel, I don't think anybody would fault him, because this is a farce. This is something that anybody could put -- even if you believe everything Adam Schiff has told you, even if you believe everything from the Democrats to come into this, to say this -- and believe me, Brian, behind the scenes, Democratic members of Congress have come to me, and they have said that they would hope that the Judiciary Committee would actually be a place where, you know, they could actually make a case and have due process and everything that follows, because they know the substance -- of the substance that he's done nothing wrong is out there. But they came to me and said, "If this is the way it's going to be," then they're struggling with it, and they're going to be put in a bad position by the speaker and by Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler on something. So, we'll see where it goes from here. We've sent several letters giving Chairman Nadler the opportunity to fix it. We give him every opportunity to make it right, to have a true hearing, if this is what you want to do. And so far, we've gotten back absolutely zero. I don't know the is not working or what. But they -- have shows, not the answer. Brian Kilmeade: And then, what you would have is this and then that's it. Or then -- so Schiff walks over, delivers his articles of impeachment, then you just vote on it? Or you guys go debate his articles of impeachment? Doug Collins: No, well see, he's not going to bring us articles. He's going to bring us the findings of his committee. They leave it up to the Judiciary Committee. I'm assuming a with Schiff, because Schiff, frankly, seems to be running our committee more than Chairman Nadler is. They'll come over, and they'll work on the articles over the next couple of weeks, if that's what they're looking to do. And then, my hope is that we actually have some facts or witnesses. We're going to send over, you know, this discussion. We'll have this discussion about what witnesses we get. I think Adam Schiff, who's made himself out on several occasions to be the, quote, "Special counsel with the investigator." If that be true, and he writes a report, then there's no reason in the world that he should not be put under oath in front of our committee, answer questions from both Republicans and Democrats and the president's council -- just like, if he compared himself to Ken Starr, Ken Starr did during the Clinton impeachment. He needs to make it -- but I don't think he'll have the -- I don't think without the gavel in his hand and ability to make up his testimony, he'll be willing to do that. But I'm challenging him right now. If you believe this president has does something wrong, you should have the temerity to come and tell us what and answer questions from everyone, including your own contact, or your staff's contact, with the whistleblower. Brian Kilmeade: If they stop short and just go for censure, would you be okay with that? Doug Collins: No, because the president has done nothing wrong. I think this is the bottom line. I mean, they're now trying to find a way out of what the American people now see, for real, is a farce and a sideshow. The president did nothing wrong in that call. I mean, when you look at it from over time, that is the factual basis of what they're discussing. In fact, think they knew that this discussion was working when they had to go out and poll test what words can make the American people upset about what the president did? And then they couldn't prove it. So, no, I think they just need to -- if they want to do this, drop it. They'll pass you at 68. They'll actually pass the -- American -- legislation. Go actually pass something. If they can go out the American people, say, "Sorry, we wasted eleven months of taxpayer dollars, but we now are trying to get something done for you. Would you vote for us again?" Brian Kilmeade: Congressman Collins is with us now from Georgia. Congressman, there's two revelations that popped up in The New York Times today that Donald Trump knew of the whistleblower complaint when did he release the aid to the Ukraine. And number two is when the aid was withheld, two OMB directors resigned, workers resigned because they were upset about it. Does that change your point of view? Doug Collins: No, not really. I mean, this is what we've seen so far in this investigation. You've seen government workers who believe that they are above -- that are the policy writers, and that they're the ones who ought to be listened to. I mean, whether it be OMB or what we saw with Kent and Taylor, which -- the first day of public hearings when you had the two of them talk about how they're 30 plus years of government service, they should be the ones making and helping the president decide? You know, forgets that the president is the one who makes actual the policy. And if you if you're resigning over policy differences, then that's what you should be doing because you shouldn't be working, where -- somewhere where you can't agree with policy. I think the other issue is the president never felt he did anything wrong on the call of whether a whistleblower said he did or didn't. And when you look at the facts of the case, they didn't -- he didn't do anything wrong. So, I don't think it makes any difference. This is a last gasp attempt by the -- and it's been going around. If you looked in the Democratic media for the last little bit, this has been out there, and now they're just trying to bring it forward, to life now because they failed in the public hearings, and now they're trying to bring it up before it gets the judiciary. Brian Kilmeade: I was surprised. Yesterday, the president talked to Bill O'Reilly, and he said this about Rudy Giuliani. Cut one. Brian Kilmeade: What was Rudy Giuliani doing in Ukraine on your behalf? President Trump: Well, you have to ask that to Rudy. But Rudy, I don't even know. I know he was going to go to Ukraine, and I think he canceled a trip. But, you know, Rudy has other clients other than me. Brian Kilmeade: So, you didn't direct him to go there on your behalf, you didn't -- President Trump: No, but you have to understand, Rudy is a great corruption fighter. Brian Kilmeade: Giuliani is your personal lawyer. So, you didn't direct -- President Trump: Yeah. Brian Kilmeade: him to go to Ukraine or do anything -- President Trump: No, I didn't direct him. Brian Kilmeade:-- or put any heat on him? President Trump: But he is a warrior. Brian Kilmeade: So, does that surprise you? Because I thought the president had directed him, this was with Gordon Sondland said. Gordon Sondland: Secretary Perry, Ambassador Volker, and I worked with Mr. Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine matters at the express direction of the president of the United States. Brian Kilmeade: So, what's going on here? Do you know? Doug Collins: No, not really. I mean, I think what you look at, though, is you go back Mr. Sondland's comment. This is also the same guy who started the line and train of the quid pro quo. And then when directly questioned, he said, "Well, that was my presumption." And now he makes this flat-out statement? I mean, I'll have to let the president -- you know -- I would trust the president's recollection better than I would Ambassador Sondland. But I mean, that's something for the president -- you know, again, it goes back to why you're having hearings and why you're not. And, you know, at this point in time, you know, the issue is, is the president can choose to dictate on how he wants to do foreign policy. Any way he wants to do it, that's given to him in the Constitution. So, yeah, his foreign policy being in the power of the executive. So, I would defer to him, and, you know, let him stand with that statement, and Sondland's already had enough issues. Brian Kilmeade: All right. I want to bring something to you personally. The president's a big fan of yours, and you've been so impressive, I think, that both sides look at Jim Jordan, you, and John Radcliffe as people pretty formidable, who actually understand the issues, are able to react in real time. And you've impressed the president enough that he evidently sat down with your governor and said, "If someone's going to replace Congress -- Senator Isakson, it should really be" you. And Kemp comes back and says, "I want it to be Kelly Loeffler, who I don't know. But evidently, he's a fan of Romney, not Trump." What could you tell us about this? Doug Collins: Well, I just -- I'll tell you this. We have put in -- the governor who's been over the last almost hundred days trying to figure out what he want from -- this pick it -- the governors and the governors alone. We feel like we have a very strong rhythm. We ask for a portal to be open. We actually submitted our as resume in the portal. I've not heard from the governor. But I know he has heard from the president and others. And we would be honored to have that pick. We could work. We believe that not only working for nominee and -- this -- with the administration on what we've been doing, but for the state of Georgia. We hope he would make that pick, but we're just sitting back waiting, and then we can make a determination of what we need to do, you know, after he makes his pick. But right now, it's sort of in a holding pattern, if you would. Brian Kilmeade: Did you know how the president felt? Doug Collins: The president told me. And he's been very supportive when he first heard about it. And again, we've just been quiet because we have a job to do in D.C. and we're going to continue to do that job. We feel like our resume could speak for itself, and then we've been very humbled by the president, his board, and others who have come to say that they would like to see if we feel humbled by that. Well, hopefully the governor will be a part of that. But we'll see how it works out. Brian Kilmeade: Do you have an opinion on Kelly Loeffler? Doug Collins: Don't know her that well. I mean, I know there's been a lot of issues, you know, coming up. She's never been in public office, so we'll just -- you know, that that's for the governor to decide. Brian Kilmeade: Do you worry about Georgia? They say Georgia is no longer a layup for Republicans. Is it changing? Doug Collins: Georgia is a state that is changing, but it is silly. It is still a conservative state. And I think that's what most people miss when they come into our state and they talk about it. Look, Stacey Abrams did everything she possibly could last year, including lie about the current governor trying to suppress votes, and she's still not governor. And what we've got to do is we've got to be able to continue to reach into the suburbs where the demographic is changing. But, Brian, for me, not only, you know, supporting the president, working for conservative values, but I've also, over the last couple of months have been awarded a bipartisanship award from the Javits Foundation in New York and from Allegheny College, because we worked on criminal justice reform, a bipartisan thing. Brian Kilmeade: Yeah. Doug Collins: It helps people in suburbs and inner cities. That was our bill. That was something the president took on and he's championed it. It's been amazing. We did music. We've done data privacy. So, I know how to work across the aisle. I know how to work with folks who don't agree with me all the time. We all play roles, but we've also played that role of actually helping people in the state of Georgia and the country. And I think that's the way you win voters, you go convince them from the hearts and minds. And I think that's what you do when you actually, you know, communicate with people. So, Georgia's -- I don't think it's in play as liberals would like you to believe it's in play. And -- but we need a strong force from our base and from a reaching out perspective to keep it. Brian Kilmeade: And just to bring it all home, and I know you got to get going, and I hope it breaks your way. But I have a book signing December 15th at the Books-A-Million in Lawrenceville, Georgia, right outside Atlanta. Start time's 1:00 o'clock. I'm not saying it's mandatory to come but would certainly help your grade. Doug Collins: All right. One of those -- I'm sure I'll talk with you before that. But Lawrenceville, I've got aunts who live in Lawrenceville. Well, I look forward, if I can. I'll look forward to seeing you. Brian Kilmeade: All right. Same to you from the Alamo Avengers. Congressman, thanks so much. Appreciate it. Back in a moment.

Senator Lindsey Graham Doesn’t Recall People in 2008 Criticizing Biden When He Attacked McCain

 Cache   
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, spoke with Brian Kilmeade about the impact on his friendship with former Vice President Joe Biden by requesting documents related to contacts between Vice President Biden, his son Hunter Biden & Ukrainian President Poroshenko. Senator Graham believes Biden is a decent fellow but believes we cannot have a country where only republicans are investigated. Graham explained, "My friendship with Joe Biden, if it can't withstand me doing my job, it's not the friendship I thought we had." Graham added, "I don't remember Joe Biden being asked, 'Well, you such good friends with John McCain. Why are you saying all these things about McCain's candidacy for president?' Nobody in their right mind would suggest that Joe Biden, because of his friendship with John McCain, could not make a case against John McCain being president and for Barack Obama. He did. He did it effectively. They tore the bark off John McCain." Graham also responded to Senator Chris Coons saying he is abandoning his friendship with Biden by doing 'Trump's dirty work'. Graham said, "Chris Coons is a friend. I'm disappointed in him. He wants to play the game where I work with him to make sure Trump gets investigated, but all of a sudden, when I ask questions ...I mean, every American wants to know the answer to, all of a sudden I'm the bad guy? That's not going to work with me." Watch here for the full interview: Watch here: Full transcript Joe Biden: We're asking, Lindsey Graham. They have him under they're thumb right now. They know he knows if he comes out against Trump, he's got a real tough road for reelection. Number one, I am disappointed. And quite frankly, I'm angered by the fact he knows me. He knows my son. He knows there's nothing to this. Lindsey is about to go down in a way that I think he's going to regret his whole life. Male Speaker: What do you say to him? Joe Biden: I say -- Lindsey, I just -- I'm just embarrassed by what you're doing. Are you? I mean, my Lord? Brian Kilmeade: My Lord. That's how he ended it. And from the minute I saw that on another network, I wanted to find out what Senator Graham thought about that, who said in the past, "I like Joe Biden," and more. But he's going to investigate Hunter Biden, and he wants to investigate what was going on in the Ukraine in 2014 and 2016. Senator Graham, well, welcome back. What's your response to that? Lindsey Graham: Well, number one, I do like Joe Biden. He's -- I've traveled the world with him. I like him, I think he's a very decent fellow. He's had a lot of tragedy in his life. But I'm not going to create a country where only Republicans get investigated. There's a lot of corruption in the Ukraine. They're an important ally. I thought Mueller would end this, but Adam Schiff is created a process in the house that's un-American, dangerous to the Presidency. And we're going to ask questions of Hunter Biden's role and getting the prosecutor fired. He served on a company, Burisma, as a board member. He received $50,000 a month. For what? I don't know. After the investigation of the company was opened by the prosecutor general's office in the Ukraine. Hunter Biden called his friends in the State Department, Joe Biden called the president, the Ukraine, Persico , three times in10 days. Went to the Ukraine in March. The investigation began February the 4th. The prosecutor was fired. I want to know the transcripts of the phone call between the Vice President and the President of the Ukraine. I want to know what Hunter Biden was doing talking to the State Department. His business partners and blue strategies also contacted at the State Department. The question is, did Hunter Biden use his political influence to stop the investigation of a gas company he was sitting on a as a board member? The president of Burisma was Zlochevsky, the former environmental minister in the Yanukovich administration, who was identified by the U.S. ambassador to the Ukraine in 2015 as being one of the most corrupt people in the Ukraine. The question is, did one of the most corrupt people in the Ukraine hired Joe -- Hunter Biden to be a board member on a gas company and Hunter Biden knows nothing about the gas business, as an insurance policy to protect his company in situations like this. I don't know what happened. I do know this. We're not going to allow the House to investigate Trump endlessly and not ask questions about all corruption in the Ukraine. Was there a corrupt motive behind Hunter Biden's interference contacting of the State Department after the gas company was being investigated? Nothing to do with friendship. When Joe Biden was the vice presidential nominee in 2008, he tore the bark off John McCain and Sarah Palin, nobody asked him, hey, will that hurt your friendship. It hurt my relationship because that's the job he was assigned. My job is to make sure that people I represent in South Carolina, that their voice is heard. Nobody in the media really gives a damn that Hunter Biden was sitting on this board receiving $50,000 a month. Nobody in the media really gives a damn that Hunter Biden weighed in with the State Department after the company came under investigation. They tell me political fat looked at this. What a joke. There has been no investigation regarding the role of the Vice President, Hunter Biden and getting the Ukrainian prosecutor fired after the investigation of Permisa -- Burisma, whatever the name of the company is. I'm going to make sure that those questions are asked. And finally, why am I doing this? When House Republicans tried to ask these questions about the role of Hunter Biden in the investigation of the gas company, they were shut down. So, I'm going to ask. If it were up me, we would have ended this a long time ago on both sides. Brian Kilmeade: Senator, well said. You have some legitimate questions and you put your job over your friendship. So, he says that you're being held hostage basically by Donald Trump, that if you go against Trump, you're not going to get reelected. What's your response to that? Lindsey Graham: It's not going to work. It's not going to work with me. I supported legislation which Chris Coons to make sure that Mueller could not be fired without cause. I didn't think the President was going to fire Mueller, but he said some things that bothered me. I didn't know what the Trump campaign did regarding Russia. I supported the idea that Mueller would be a fair guy to look. I trusted Mueller. He spent two years and $25 million. He found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians. And he made no recommendations for prosecution based on obstruction of justice allegations. I thought that would end it. What Schiff is doing is dangerous to the Presidency. He's not allowing Republicans to call witnesses. The President's counsel can't participate in the Intel Committee hearings. You can't ask any questions about whether or not Hunter Biden interfered in an investigation at the gas company where he received $50,000 a month as a board member. I want to know what Joe Biden asked of the Ukrainian government after the raid on Burisma. I hope there's nothing there. Reveal the transcripts. Trump released the transcripts. All I'm asking is that somebody look at this line of inquiry. It does look very suspicious to me. The conflict of interest is obvious with Hunter Biden being on that board. So Checci was named the most corrupt person in the Ukraine by the U.S. ambassador in 2015. They hired Hunter Biden by 2014. Burmese -- Burisma did. Was that an insurance policy to protect them against investigations? I don't know. Blue Strategies weighed in with the State Department after the raid on the gas company. Who did they talk to and what did they ask? Hunter Biden's business partner met directly with John Kerry. What was that all about? I don't believe political factors is the end of the inquiry. Somebody needs to look at this. The House is not allowing these questions to be asked. I will make sure they're asking the Senate. Brian Kilmeade: Well, we know this. He knows nothing about what he was doing over there, but he was golfing with Archer, his partner over there in the Hamptons. Lindsey Graham: When did he know it? What did he do? And he's a friend. I mean, you know, it's up to him if he wants the friendship to continue. I hope it will continue. But don't expect me -- you know, Chris Coons, I work with a lot. You know, I work with you to protect Mueller. You're going to rally around Joe Biden's campaign. I understand that politically. But I can promise you that when Joe Biden was doing his job as the Democratic nominee for vice president, going after McCain and Palin. Nobody ask him about is the friendship in question. So it is obvious to me that Hunter Biden did some things that need to be looked at to stop the investigation of a company. He was receiving $50,000 a month from in the Ukraine. And the president that company was one of the most corrupt people in the entire country, according to the U.S. government. Brian Kilmeade: So Joe Biden called out Lindsey Graham said basically he feels bad for many, is angered by his action. Lindsey Graham said -- Lindsey Graham: Don't feel bad about me. Don't worry about me. I am fine, Joe. You're a good man. You lived a very consequential life. You're running for president. You're sitting on the sidelines as the Democratic Party takes a sledgehammer to Trump and his family and his life in 2014. George can't contact the Biden team to raise the conflict of interest his son had being on the board with a Burisma and they said nothing. They basically -- Joe was grieving and I understand that. But the conflict -- Brian Kilmeade: Senator, we actually pulled -- I got his chair -- two things, Chris Coons said this about you, I guess this is what you're referring to. Delaware senator took Joe Biden's spot when he went to become vice president. Senator Coons, Lindsey Graham is abandoning his friendship with Biden by doing Trump's dirty work. Do you want to respond to that specifically? Lindsey Graham: Yeah. Chris, you're a good man. I like working with you, but we're not going to have it. We're not going to play the game like you want to play. You asked me to join with you to protect Mueller from an investigation that I thought needed to be had. Now you're shutting down legitimate questions about the role of Hunter Biden regarding a prosecution of a company he served on. You're asking us to ignore an obvious conflict of interest. It's not going to work that way. My friendship with these people are not going to keep me from asking questions that somebody needs to ask. I represent the people of South Carolina. Every time I go out in the community, people wanting to know when we're going to look at what happened with the. Here's what the allegation basically is against the Bidens. Hunter Biden served on a board owned by the most corrupt person in the Ukraine receiving $50,000 a month. And he knows nothing about the gas business. And when the company was being investigated in the president's house was being graded, Hunter Biden started calling the State Department. Joe Biden made three phone calls in 10 days to the president of the Ukraine, went over in March to meet with the president of Ukraine and they fired the guy investigating Hunter Biden's company. We're not going to give them a pass on this. They opened up this can of worms about corruption in the Ukraine. They're alleging the president denied aid to the Ukraine cause he wanted the Bidens investigated a political opponent. There was a quid pro quo for it. I don't see that. I don't see that being proven. Brian Kilmeade: I want you to hear Lindsey Graham talk in July 2015 with The Huffington Post about Joe Biden. Lindsey Graham: I think in it, Meyer Joe Biden as a person. There's probably you've got a problem that you need to do some self-evaluation. Because what's not to like? I called them after Beau died and he basically said, well, Beau was my soul for a long time. He came to my ceremony. He said some of the most incredibly heartfelt things that anybody could ever say to me, and he is the nicest person that I've ever met in politics. Male Speaker: Is that right: Lindsey Graham: He is as good a man as God ever created. And we don't agree on much. Brian Kilmeade: So that that's what he was contrasting risk. Lindsey Graham: Yeah. So everything I said was about Joe Biden the first -- I've traveled the world with him. He lost his son, Beau, who I knew. I don't think I've ever talked to Hunger Biden. If I have I don't remember it. The bottom line here is I'm the senator from South Carolina. I don't remember Joe Biden being asked, why if you're such good friends with John McCain, why are you saying all these things about McCain candidacy for president? Nobody in their right mind would suggest that Joe Biden, because of his friendship with John McCain, could not make a case against John McCain being president and for Barack Obama. He did. He did it effectively. They tore the bark off John McCain. Now, here's where I find myself. Your son is serving on a gas company in the Ukraine, making $50,000 a month. An obvious conflict of interest. That gas company gets investigated for corruption. Did your son weigh in and use his political influence to stop that investigation? President Trump wants to find out about corruption in the Ukraine. And if there's nothing there. Fine. I hope there's not. I want the transcripts of the phone calls between Biden and the president of the Ukraine. I want somebody other than political fact, look at whether or not Hunter Biden used his influence to stop the investigation of a company he receiving $50,000 a month compensation in the Ukraine based on the gas business, which you knew nothing about. Brian Kilmeade: Senator, are you acting as the chairman of Judiciary or are you doing President Trump's dirty work or does the president intimidate you into doing what he wants you to do? Lindsey Graham: I'm doing this because somebody needs to do it. When I supported legislation to make sure Mueller could be fired, the Trump world didn't like that much. I was okay with what I did because I thought somebody outside of politics needs to look at the Trump campaign's interaction with Russia, if any. There was one person that could clear Trump or find him guilty of wrongdoing. To me, that was Mueller. I supported that investigation and I was the hero of the town. Standing up for the rule of law. Good old, Lindsey. Now they're playing on a friendship. They're trying to intimidate me from asking questions that somebody should ask. Ukraine is a corrupt country. I get that. Why Hunger Biden was on his board. I don't know. If Joe Biden didn't know, I find it hard to believe. What did he know and when did you know it? Did his son, Hunter Biden use his influence with the State Department in the Obama administration to call off the dogs investigating a company that he was serving on in the Ukraine? The president this company was known to be one of the most corrupt people in the country. Why were you on his board to begin if Joe Biden's job was to clean up corrupt. Brian Kilmeade: There's legitimate questions that nobody's asking. They always press. They preface every question with there's no corruption there. And then they go on and move on. So you're asking those questions because you're doing your job. Lindsey Graham: My friendship with Joe Biden, if they can't withstand me doing my job is not the friendship I thought we had. Everything I said about him in 2015 is true. I admire him as a person. I think he's always trying to do right by the country. I think that -- I think he's made a lot of bad policy choices. But as a person, I like him. He spoke at Senator Thurmond's funeral. I have. I have stood up for him against allegations he was a racist. That's absurd. But we're not going to allow a system in America where only one side gets looked at. These are legitimate questions. What did Hunter Biden do in February the 4th? Brian, this is important. The prosecutor general announces an investigation of Burisma, the gas company. And that's when Hunter Biden started contacting the State Department. And after that contact, Joe Biden made three phone calls in 10 days about the prosecutor. Now, I want to know what they were talking about. Brian Kilmeade: That's it. Senator, you had to sit there for two days and take personal attacks from Joe Biden and all his supporters and you just sounded off. And I think you -- Lindsey Graham: I'm disappointed in him. He wants to play the game where I work with him to make sure Trump gets investigated, but all of a sudden, when I ask questions that are just -- a lot of Republicans want to know the answer to, I think every American will know the answer to, all that and the bad guy. That's not going to work with me. Brian Kilmeade: Senator Graham, I get it. I agree. Thanks so much for using this vehicle to get your side of the story out. Back in a moment.

Don't Bother Me With Facts
Last week Attorney Manfred Nowak's U.N. report titled "Global Study on Children Deprived of Liberty" hit the airwaves and the world, us included, went crazy. According to Nowak, the U.S. currently has more than 100,000 children in migration-related detention. That's evil. Trump is evil. Except, of course, it's not true. That was the number held under Obama throughout 2015. Oops! Well, it doesn't matter. Trump wanted to, we're pretty sure. At least some of the outlets that ran the story retracted it, but you can be pretty sure that folks will be quoting the horrors of Obama's Trump's administration for some time to come, because once it's out there, it's out there, and too many cannot be bothered with facts.

Christmas Decoration Control
An 88-year-old veteran responded to a neighbor's plea for help. Her younger sister was being attacked by a dog. He rushed out the door and snatched up the first weapon he could find -- a plastic nutcracker, part of his neighbor's Christmas display. He mercilessly beat the pitbull until it released the 10-year-old girl. Neighbors are calling for his arrest for animal cruelty and the township is looking into extending Christmas decoration control to cut down on anti-dog violence. Okay, no. The man bravely defended the girl against a vicious animal and, somehow, today's twisted mentality (like "Save the dogs but kill the unborn babies") didn't mess that up.

More Fake News
There was a story out that mothers were binge drinking more than before. Turns out it's fake news. Turns out that between 2006 and 2018 mothers are binging on alcohol the same amount as women without children. Oh, sure, that number has been on the rise, but that it's just mothers is fake news. What disturbed me most about the story was that the medical world defines binge drinking as four or more drinks at once for women and five or more for men. That seems like a sexist standard suggesting that genders are not equal and there is actually a biological difference between men and women. I thought we'd banished that idea.

When Equal Treatment is Hate
An organization known as "Created Equal" did all the required steps and paperwork to get permission to put up a display at Georgia Tech, Georgia State, and Kennesaw State universities as well as the University of Georgia. Their aim? Their message is that "to treat the preborn in a way we’d never treat a born person is a grievous violation of human equality. College students deserve to see the victims of this injustice and to know the science and reasoning behind defending the preborn." They plan to show images of fetuses to show that they're preborn children. Georgia State warned students that it was coming and labeled such speech as "hateful or mean-spirited." The group calls the murder of preborn children "ageism" and opposes unequal treatment. Pro-choicers apparently consider "ageism" hate and equal treatment "mean-spirited." Otherwise they wouldn't care if someone showed pictures of a non-human, right?

Speaking of Abortion
So here's the story. According to "all statistics measuring abortion in the U.S.", abortions reached an "historic low" in 2016. Yippee! That's good. Like saying, "Fewer children were murdered in 2016 than in the previous years of murdering children took place." Being one who values human life, it's good that the number is down. Being one who values truth, it's misleading to fall into the trap. You understand that abortions were not tracked prior to 1969, that immorality in 1969 was on the rise (meaning that abortions before that were likely less), and that no one really knows how many abortions took place in prior years. (The CDC started tracking them in 1969, but since it was illegal, they had no reliable means of actually knowing how many there were.) (It should also be noted that Wikipedia reports that, according to the CDC, there were 193,491 abortions reported to the CDC with an induced abortion rate of 52 per live birth. Significantly less than 2016. Making the story itself a lie.) You understand that it is considered "good news" that "only" 623,471 babies were murdered by abortion in 2016, down from 638,169 in 2015. I'm glad the number is down. I'm sad that "only over a half million killed" is considered good news. That's more than the total number of Americans killed in World War II. That's more than the total number of Americans killed in the Civil War where every death was an American. Don't let them tell you it's "safe, legal, and rare," because it's legal, but it's still not safe and it's certainly not rare.

Going About It The Wrong Way
Wayne Grudem is a biblical scholar, conservative, complementarian, generally good things. Recently, it seems, he has been listening to sad stories of marital abuse and has decided to change his view on divorce. Originally he recognized only adultery or desertion. Now he has added ... well ... just about anything. (He lists verbal and physical abuse, drug or alcohol addiction, gambling addiction, and pornography addiction for examples.) Ostensibly, on the basis of the phrase "In such cases" found in 1 Cor 7:15, he has concluded that anything that destroys a marriage is included, and "destroys a marriage" is not defined. I say "ostensibly" because clearly he came to this conclusion not on the basis of Scripture, but on the basis of horrible stories of spouses staying in abusive marriages because they were told they had to just sit and take it. This is the same basis that others have used to change their view that homosexual behavior is sin. Because of Scripture? No. Someone in their family or someone close to them has come out as "gay" and circumstances -- their feelings about these people -- have dictated their position, not Scripture. We don't get to offer a "new and promising kind of argument" for God's Word. Not even Mr. Grudem. Sorry, Wayne.

WATCH: Rick Perry Told Trump He Is the 'Chosen One' Like King David

 Cache   

Energy Secretary Rick Perry says he told U.S. President Donald Trump that he is "the chosen one," like kings David, Saul and Solomon.

In August, while discussing a trade war with China, Trump said, "Somebody had to do it. I am the chosen one." His comments received significant backlash at the time from both believers and nonbelievers. Following this controversy, Perry told Fox & Friends he affirmed to Trump that he is "the chosen one."

"God's used imperfect people all throughout history," Perry says. "King David wasn't perfect. Saul wasn't perfect. Solomon wasn't perfect. I actually gave the president a little one-pager on those Old Testament kings about a month ago, and I shared it with him. I said, 'Mr. President, I know there are people that say you said you were the chosen one,' and I said, 'You were.' If you're a believing Christian, you understand God's plan for the people who rule and judge over us on this planet in our government."

The video later clarifies that Perry also believes Barack Obama was sent by God as well.

Following the clip, Fox and Friends Host Pete Hegseth added, "God has used imperfect people forever, because we're all imperfect, but what he has withstood is unlike what really any other mortal could understand."

What Happened in the Halle Synagogue Attack?, by Esther Dischereit

After every right-wing act of violence we hear once more that it was a “lone wolf” attack. Esther Dischereit argues that this is an implausible cover-up of attitudes sympathetic to Nazism.

On October 9, 2019, an assassin in Halle, Germany, shot two people and killed them, and he also shot several others, wounding them. He wanted to kill those who had come together in the synagogue on Yom Kippur, the highest Jewish Holy Day, and he put an incendiary device in the Jewish cemetery nearby. He didn’t succeed. When he realized he had failed to kill Jews, he killed Kevin S., who was in a snack bar for döner, a Turkish fast food. For the perpetrator, Kevin S. was, as it were, someone who associated with Turks, migrants, presumably also Muslims. He was shot for and instead of someone else. Jana L., a non-Jewish resident of Halle whom the perpetrator shot when he meant to kill the people inside the synagogue, also certainly died instead of Jewish people.

Katrina Turner, a representative of the African-American community in Charlottesville, broke out in tears when in 2017—after the Ku Klux Klan invaded her city—she recounted her memories of Heather Heyer, a counterdemonstrator who was killed, and of the many more were injured. Turner repeated this sentence twice: “. . . that a white woman died for us.” As the Ku Klux Klan supporters marched into town, they chanted this slogan: “The Jew will not replace us.” In this context, the figure of the “Jew” signifies that white domination of the world is under threat. In this sense, being Jewish is elevated to being simply “the other” and becomes a shorthand for all efforts and aspirations that could disturb the image of a healthy, pure “Aryan” people.

In such milieus the “Jew” also represents left-wing political positions and queer, feminist, and diverse worldviews, including ways of being human that supposedly bring decay, including taking in refugees and wanting to live as peaceful neighbors to Muslims. Each of these concepts is well known. Historically, this has not stopped these people from seeing Jews as a “red danger” while at the same time denouncing them as “capitalist bloodsuckers.”

 

“Happy about Every Synagogue”

The attack in Halle is different from what happened in Pittsburgh, Christchurch, and France not because of the ideological fanaticism, not because of the cold-bloodedness, but because the attack took place in a country where the “Final Solution” happened under Nazi rule. The image of people trapped in a synagogue is superimposed upon the image of people driven into a synagogue. The exits were blocked, and German Einsatzkommandos set the synagogue on fire. After millions of Jewish people had been killed or driven out, every political establishment after 1945 at first had to tolerate the few who remained and later on court them from time to time. After the October attack, Germany’s federal chancellor, Angela Merkel, declared that “we are happy about every synagogue, every Jewish community, and all Jewish life in our country.”

Up to now the Islamic community, with its roughly 4.5 million members in Germany, has not experienced such a public validation. Such attentiveness to mosques that have been set on fire or headscarves that have been spat on is still waiting to appear on the political stage. A few days ago at the event celebrating the ten-year existence of the only existing Jewish scholarship, the Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich Scholarship Fund (ELES), it was Hakan Tosuner, director of Avicenna, the Islamic Scholarship Foundation established five years ago, who said: “Precisely in light of yesterday’s tragic incident, Jewish-Muslim solidarity is more important than ever. . . . Whether synagogues or mosques are attacked, we must be united in solidarity.”

Perhaps it is inappropriate to express these thoughts publicly at this time. But it remains a fact that this threat has not just become evident now for the first time and that other citizens are also affected. The Roma and the Sinti peoples are continually exposed to an endless stream of threats that has made it necessary for this minority, too, to erect a special protective wall at the entrance to their center in Baden-Württemberg. Four days after Halle, Daniel Strauß, chairman of their association, received this threat of an attack on his cell phone: “After Halle, your cultural center is up next.” In Germany, Austria, and the Balkans, this minority was also a victim of Nazi racial fanaticism.

“Try to speak: I am glad you exist, that you exist here, among us.” It may strike one that perhaps this sentence sounds untruthful. It hardly seems right, and I must confess that I personally don’t demand such a statement. Absolutely no one has to be happy or not happy that I exist. I am here, all the same, whether someone else is happy about that or not. Is it the responsibility of government representatives to welcome me as a ward? Is this attitude legitimate simply because someone is a member of the majority?

 

“A Foreign Race”

It is basically a question of reversing an attitude of being unhappy about someone and wanting to send her or him “back home.” Donald Trump exemplifies this when he denies that the Democratic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are “real Americans.” The AfD (Alternative für Deutschland) politician Alexander Gauland recommended that the former German minister for integration Aydan Özoğuz should be “disposed of like waste material.” With reference to the same person, a party member said that she should care about “over there, where she belonged.” The opponent is said to be base, branded as “another race,” stigmatized as “the other” and foreign.

This use of the language by the legal political arm of the right-wing terrorist milieu continues in the struggle over public space, the struggle for the political opinion of others. Antifascist projects and initiatives on the left, booksellers, and others are overrun with incendiary devices and death threats. But it was only in June 2019 after the Christian Democratic Union district president of the city of Kassel, Walter Lübke, was murdered by the neo-Nazi Stephan Ernst that an outcry broke out in the political establishment.

Lübke fulfilled his obligation to take care of people who entered the country seeking protection as they fled dictatorship and civil war. He clearly injured the feelings of the right-wing extremists when he said that whoever did not agree with such values was at liberty to leave Germany. This murder followed a series of murders by the National Socialist Underground (NSU). Preceding this one, nine people, all of them migrants, were killed as well as a female German police officer, and a bomb attack injured more than twenty people in Cologne. The existence of the NSU was discovered in 2011. In the trial in Munich, which ended in 2018, Beate Zschäpe was sentenced to life in prison. In the eyes of those who were family members of the victims, the sentence exonerated the other accomplices who were accused. It was evident that the court had wanted to limit the group of culprits to a core of three and to the most immediate environment. Additional investigations were not done (e.g., in connection with a list of the right-wing extremists’ targets that was discovered). Two hundred and thirty-three goals referring to Jewish life were identified on this list. A greater number of targets referred to migrant communities, and others specified politicians and parties.

 

Ideological Incendiary Devices

Crimes motivated by anti-Semitism have taken place since 1980, with the murder of the rabbi and publisher Shlomo Lewin and his partner, Frida Poeschke, since the arson attack on the synagogue in Erfurt, those injured in Düsseldorf-Wehrhahn and in other places: 1980, 1992, 2000, 2003. . . . Nevertheless, after every right-wing terrorist act of violence we hear, repeated like a mantra, that this was an attack by a single individual. At first the danger from these networks assembled by neo-Nazis ready to do violence was perceived little by little. In August, the German Federal Office of Criminal Investigation counted those who posed a threat to public safety at forty-one, although the number of right-wing extremists ready to engage in violence has been identified as over twelve thousand. Their sympathizers are said to be as many as twice that. More than five hundred arrest warrants for neo-Nazis have not been served. Where were they sought?

After every right-wing terrorist act of violence we hear, repeated like a mantra, that this was an attack by a single individual.

It is about time that independent commissions investigate the security forces that not only refrain from proceeding against right-wing extremism but may themselves be involved. Many incidents involving police in Hesse, Thuringia, and in the army suggest this possibility.

The criminals of the National Socialist regime were largely left unpunished. This culture of immunity from punishment has continued and spread with regard to right-wing extremism in our democratic system. This is the real problem. The antifascist initiatives and archives have an extensive amount of research material at their disposal. It is thanks to them that not everything can be swept under the rug.

This culture of immunity from punishment has continued and spread with regard to right-wing extremism in our democratic system.

As the political arm of the culprits, the AfD denies that it had anything to do with these crimes. But they are the ones who for a long time have been planting ideological fire accelerants. Remarks against Jews are heard again and again from members of the FPÖ (Freedom Party of Austria); denial that an ideological system is at work here follows close on the heels of such statements. These are implausible cover-ups of an attitude sympathetic to Nazism.

Initiatives like “Indivisible” or “We are the many” make clear that they oppose the ethnically tinged “You are the stranger” with a “we.” In August of this year thirty-five thousand people demonstrated in Dresden in favor of this stance; thousands are once more in the streets. Citizens can demand that the right-wing extremists who commit arson, their spiritual mentors, and networks be investigated. Flirtation with such a body of thought is not only tasteless but, given the brutality of the milieu, it is the beginning of the end.

A writer in Tehran incapable of entering the US under the Muslim travel ban encounters Michelle Obama’s Becoming in a beauty salon. Reading the Farsi translation, she finds encouragement in its pages.

Every Fourth of July, I question my American friends’ patriotism. I email them Independence Day congratulations, attached with pictures of the American flag. Many of my American friends don’t show much interest in my Fourth of July congratulations. Like my friend Sam. He thinks differently about the idea of the flag, national anthem, and patriotism. Sam believes that the flag is not sacred; it’s just a symbol. He says he doesn’t need to wrap himself in the US flag to demonstrate that he is a patriot. To him, patriotism is more than just following a flag and cheering for the politicians who wave it. Although Sam was born and raised in a military family with right-wing political views, he is very leftist.

Since November 2016, Sam has lived in a number of European countries and recently settled down in northeastern Africa to serve as a health consultant. He doesn’t like living in the States anymore and thinks of himself as a citizen of the world. Once I asked Sam how he feels when some people of other countries—including Iran—burn the US flag. He smiled and said, “I understand that it’s a statement. We—the Americans—burn our flag to make a statement, too. For some Americans the flag is sacred, that’s true, but for the ones like me who understand the freedom of speech, it’s different. I’m the son of a Vietnam War veteran, and I lost my father for this country. Who can be more patriotic than me? But this country is a mess right now, and as an American, I’m not proud of the US, where good people like you are not welcome.”

As an Iranian woman who was born to Muslim parents, I’m not welcome in the United States under the Trump Muslim ban.

As an Iranian woman who was born to Muslim parents, I’m not welcome in the United States under the Trump Muslim ban. Although the US has broken my heart, many times in different ways, I’ve never stopped loving it, and I never will. Maybe that’s the reason I’ve been devoting my life in Tehran to keeping the literary conversation between our countries alive and urgent, through reading and writing about the US. Over the past two years, I’ve been writing nonfiction essays about my relationship with American literature and its art, and most of these essays were written in my room in Tehran—my little America.

I never thought that one day I would be able to write about the most famous woman in the United States—the former FLOTUS. I never expected that a beauty salon in northern Tehran would be the place where we could meet. Well, of course, we never met in person. But in a beauty salon in northern Tehran, I found her portrait staring at me from the cover of Becoming.

Among Iranian women, Michelle Obama is considered by far to be the most charismatic FLOTUS.

First ladies of the United States have always been headline news among Iranian women. From Jackie Kennedy’s sunglasses and scarves, to Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits and hairstyle, to Melania Trump’s heels and flats. But things are very different for Michelle Obama. She’s highly regarded among us as an intelligent and courageous woman. Among Iranian women, she is considered by far to be the most charismatic FLOTUS.

I was a little surprised to see her book because I had no idea it had been translated into Farsi and published in Iran. To be honest, the Farsi translation of Becoming wasn’t what I expected, and I wish I could first read it in English. But the translated version had received very serious attention among Iranian readers, especially young women, and it quickly rose to the top of the best-seller list. Reading Becoming in my tiny room in Tehran was like having a journey in my life. The book, especially the first section— “Becoming Me”—took me to my childhood and my first encounter with the anti-Americanism in postwar Tehran.

Where to start? My first vivid memory of the US goes back to the days I entered primary school at age seven. It was where I first faced my country’s anti-American policies. Every Fourth of November—the anniversary of the hostage crisis—the school principal made us sing the anti-American anthem and then cry out that famous slogan: “Death to America!” It was cold and early in the morning, and the school principal made us shout it so loud that even the White House would hear us. I had no idea where the US was located on the world map or what kind of people live there. I thought the White House was a person.

I asked my mother, “Mom, where is America? Who are the Americans? The principal says the bad people live there. What kind of people live there? Are they Muslims like you?”

My mother laughed. “It’s overseas, far away. When we are ending our day, the Americans are starting their day; when we are eating dinner, at the same time, they are eating their breakfast. People who live there are like us, little girls like you play hopscotch, and little boys like your brother play soccer.” She paused to run a brush through my hair. “Americans might look different from us, but we all have one god. So we are all brothers and sisters. I’ve never been there, but I’ve heard that it’s a lovely country. They call it the dreamland.”

“Who is the White House?” I said.

“Not who! What is the White House? It’s a . . .”

My father interrupted: “It’s a house that is ruled by white Americans, the white Christians.”

My mom looked at my dad questioningly. “Okay, Shohreh. Enough for tonight. Time for bed.”

“Why does the principal burn their flag if they are our brothers and sisters?” I said. “Do the Americans burn our flag, too?”

She responded helplessly. “The principal should have never done that. Burning the flag is an ugly thing to do. But promise you will never talk about these things at school. Do you hear me?”

That night was the beginning of a double life for me in Tehran. The US became a mysterious thing to talk about, a taboo. What my dad said about the White House stuck in my mind for years. And it mostly came true in 2001, and then 2003, when the US invaded Afghanistan and Iraq.

Yet the 2008 presidential election in the US proved that my mother was also right about the dreamland. For the first time in history, an African American woman became the FLOTUS. On January 20, 2009, I was twenty-two and was about to start studying English and American literature at the university where Azar Nafisi—the author of Reading Lolita in Tehran—once taught English and American literature.

Reading Becoming in Tehran, especially the second section—“Becoming Us”took me back to the good old days of the university where I created my path and started my own journey. I found the second section of the book deeply personal, emotional, and also extremely feminine. I found Michelle Obama to be a highly intelligent, complicated woman but at the same time very stubborn and simple. A courageous figure who broke the taboos of the political world. What I loved most about her is that she considers herself “not a political person.” Maybe that’s why she will never run for the presidency—despite what Michael Moore wants. I prefer to see Michelle Obama not only as the FLOTUS and Barack Obama’s wife but as an intellectual figure, a progressive leader, a courageous role model, a fashion icon, and an educator for women all around the world.

What I loved most about her is that she considers herself “not a political person.”

As a Middle Eastern woman, I don’t look at the US as Sam and my other American friends do. I see it from my Middle Eastern point of view. I think both my father and mother could be right. My father—as a secular—was right to see the rise of white Christianity as a significant danger for the world. And my mother—as a Muslim—was right to view the issues with hope and faith.

As an Iranian woman, I’m concerned about the rise of fascism, especially religious fascism, around the world. I’m concerned about the rise of evangelicals in the US, just as I’m concerned about the rise of religious fanatics in the Middle East. Now I know that the White House is not a person—but as a Middle Easterner I’m concerned about the person who occupies it, regardless of whether they are a Democrat or a Republican. As an Iranian woman, I’m concerned about the winds of change, fanned not by the hands of politicians but by people, and especially women, who believe in themselves, in their dreams, and work hard to fulfill them. Reading Becoming in Tehran encouraged me to fulfill my dreams, to create a new path, to strive and to fail in pursuit of the life I truly deserve. I’m glad that Michelle Obama is not a political person but a patriotic American. I don’t like politicians, but I like patriots.

The Takeaway From the Impeachment Hearings: Our Constitution Has Failed

 Cache   

When the House Intelligence Committee began holding hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, some media coverage suggested the proceedings lacked enough “pizzazz … to capture public attention.” It turned out that hearings produced more than their share of bombshells—from EU ambassador and Trump megadonor Gordon Sondland’s admission that there was a “quid pro quo,” to State Department official David Holmes’s testimony about  overhearing a phone call in which Sondland assured Trump that Ukraine would move ahead with the investigations Trump had requested, to former National Security Council official Fiona Hill’s conclusion that Sondland was carrying out a “domestic political errand” for the president that diverged from the U.S. national interest. When the Committee concluded its hearings, the evidence was damning and largely uncontested: Trump appeared to have been part of a scheme to extort a foreign country into sabotaging the US presidential election to his benefit.

Yet, even with the evidence on public display, it remains next to impossible to imagine Republicans taking meaningful action. Even Republicans seen as most likely to break from their party are signaling support for Trump. Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas), a member of the Intelligence Committee who is retiring from Congress and has at times criticized the president, said that, while the president’s actions had been “inappropriate, misguided foreign policy,” he did not see evidence of an impeachable offense. Hurd’s statement can reasonably be seen as an indication that few (if any) Republicans in Congress will vote to impeach or remove the president from office.

Some observers describe what we are seeing as a crisis. In fact, what we are living through is constitutional failure. The system created by the framers is not doing the job it was designed to do, particularly in the current circumstances: We are faced with a corrupt president who rejects the very idea of legal limits on his power.

Our constitutional democracy is based on free and fair elections, individual rights, independent courts, and the rule of law—the idea that no one is above the law. Trump rejects all of these bedrock principles. He has tried to undermine free and fair elections (most recently demonstrated in the Ukraine scandal.) He threatens his critics with prosecution and lawsuits, disdaining the notion of First Amendment speech and press protections. He seeks to delegitimize judges who rule against his policies. He rejects the idea that ordinary rules and laws apply to him and his allies, declaring (erroneously) that under Article II of the Constitution, “I have the right to do whatever I want as president.”

Trump poses an existential threat to our system of government—and yet he remains in office. In a functioning system, Republicans would have already joined Democrats in taking action to remove Trump from office—just as Republicans stood against Nixon in 1974. In our failed system we are reduced to waiting to see how far Trump will go before congressional Republicans will act—if they ever do.

Every system needs a way to protect itself, and our constitutional system provides (in theory) all the tools needed to deal with the direct threat Trump poses. Congress is fully empowered to remove a corrupt president from office. But congressional Republicans, by refusing to act, render those tools useless. 

James Madison believed that the constitutional system would prevent the accumulation of too much power in any one branch of government. If one branch exceeded the limits of its power, it would be reined in by the others. In order for this to work, Madison famously wrote, “Ambition must be made to counteract ambition.” In other words, if the president engaged in a power grab, members of Congress would use constitutionally available tools to check him or her —not out of moral rectitude but because legislators would be worried about ceding their own power to an ambitious president.

The system is failing because Republicans are placing partisan concerns—their own loyalty to Trump or fear of the political costs of defying him—ahead of their constitutional responsibilities. The system Madison helped design cannot function properly under these circumstances.

It is important to forthrightly describe the reality of constitutional failure for two reasons. 

First, it emphasizes the emergency we face. If he does not face consequences, Trump will feel emboldened to do precisely as he chooses, without regard to ethical or legal limits. We’re seeing this, for instance, with Trump’s moves to undermine the rule of law within the U.S. military by pardoning the Navy SEAL convicted of taking a “selfie” with the corpse of a teenage boy who fought for ISIS.

We can’t count on his removal from office by election as a foolproof safeguard, especially when Trump’s misconduct in the Ukraine scandal was focused squarely on an illicit attempt to tilt the electoral scales in his favor.

Second, describing what has occurred as failure points out that we need a new constitution, one that will be designed to strengthen our democracy against future existential threats. No system is guaranteed to succeed, but a failed one demands replacement. 

Today’s Republican Party is an anti-democratic, authoritarian party that seeks to gain—and has gained—power without winning a majority of votes. To this end, it pushes voter suppression measures and takes advantage of structural defects in our system. Gerrymandered districts can allow the GOP to win a minority of the votes and still control the House. The Electoral College gave Trump the presidency 2016, even though he lost the popular vote—a feat he stands a realistic chance of repeating in 2020. And though deeply unpopular, he enjoys majority support in a Senate that does not reflect political preferences of the majority of Americans, but instead allows a  minority in sparsely populated states to wield power. 

Making the electoral system more majoritarian could force the Republican Party to abandon its anti-democratic approach if it wishes to win. There is no guaranteed way to prevent would-be authoritarians from gaining power. After all, a very popular authoritarian could easily win the popular vote. But clearly, the authoritarianism of our current president is not popular with Americans: Trump’s approval ratings are consistently in the low 40s. Constitutional change would strengthen liberal democracy against an authoritarian party. It is worth trying.

With this goal in mind, a new constitution could address some of the anti-democratic features of our current system, including:

  • ending the Electoral College.

  • reforming or replacing a Senate that gives the 435,000 voting-age people in Wyoming as many votes as the 17,524,000 in Texas.

  • eliminating partisan gerrymandering.

  • protecting the right to vote against voter suppression efforts.

  • dealing with the corrupting influence of our current campaign finance system.

A new constitution could also be aimed at shoring up the rule of law, including by protecting the independence of the Department of Justice and replacing the current impeachment process with something capable of actually holding a lawless president to account. One idea to explore would be expressly giving the DOJ independent prosecutorial authority over the president. Another would be providing a process for triggering new presidential elections—say, based on a three-fifths vote in the House and Senate. 

Obviously, these kinds of changes are not politically plausible at the moment, but they need to be on our agenda—unless we are willing to risk another attack on the system from a future president. We need to begin talking about how to create the conditions needed for a new constitution, one giving us better odds of warding off the next authoritarian threat—assuming we survive the one posed by Trump.


          

From Fur to Foie Gras: Animals Are on a Winning Streak

 Cache   

Activists with Slaughter Free Chicago (SFC) gathered November 7 at City Hall to push the city—once, says SFC founder Robert Grillo, the “slaughter capital of the world”—to eliminate its remaining slaughterhouses. Dozens of protesters sang, spoke with mayoral staff, and invoked the memory of the socialist writer Upton Sinclair, whose book The Jungle exposed the squalid working conditions of the city’s meatpackers.

Published in 1906, Sinclair’s novel galvanized landmark legislation empowering the federal government to regulate meat quality. But the plight of the workers themselves (let alone the animals they killed) went largely unaddressed. “I aimed for the public’s heart,” Sinclair famously wrote, “and by accident hit it in the stomach.”

The latest wave of slaughterhouse critics hopes this time, it can hit the heart.

On the surface, the situation for animals is grim: The Trump administration has loosened government protections in areas from wildlife refuges to trophy hunting to the meat industry, and climate emergency is poised to threaten wild animal populations worldwide. Though Trump did sign a federal ban on intentional animal cruelty November 25, it specifically exempts farms, slaughterhouses, hunters, fishers and research labs, rendering its scope limited. But a series of high-profile animal rights victories has swept the country in recent weeks, suggesting more substantive reform may be possible.

On October 30, activists in the public gallery at a New York City Council meeting thrust jazz hands to the air in celebration of a ban on foie gras produced from force-feeding, amid a raft of animal welfare legislation that included the establishment of a city office explicitly dedicated to animal welfare concerns, new data-keeping requirements on animal cruelty reports, vaccination requirements, equine working conditions, and regulations promoting shelter adoption—many of which reflect active ongoing campaigns elsewhere. Mayor Bill De Blasio signed the legislation November 25.

Earlier in October, California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed laws banning the manufacture or sale of new fur products, as well as the use of most animals in circus acts. In August, Illinois became the third state to outlaw the sale of cosmetics tested on nonhuman animals, following California and Nevada. And in Milwaukee, activists organized a successful resistance against a proposed plan to build a slaughterhouse in a long-vacant north Milwaukee business park, in a campaign partly inspired by SFC.

The 21th century, thanks in part to activist efforts, has seen a “loosening up of the instrumental perspective on animal use,” says Bernie Unti. Unti, a senior policy adviser to the president of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), has written extensively on the history of the animal protection movement. In the early-to-mid 20th century, Unti says, the movement largely focused on more modest campaigns such as those surrounding dogs and cats in pounds; a fast-growing meat industry parried any more ambitious proposals. But shift in public attitude, combined with technological innovations in clothing, research and fake meat, is making reforms an easier lift than in decades past.

“A common misconception about animal rights activists is that we only care about nonhuman animals, and that we’re discrediting human culture and human behavior,” says Amy Zignego, who helped organize the Milwaukee campaign. “We always have to be really sensitive. We don’t want to be perceived as a bunch of white vegans.”

Of the dozens of business-park neighbors whose doorbells activists rang, Zignego said, only one person had even heard about the slaughterhouse development plan, which was, at the time poised to proceed with little debate. Acting quickly, activists successfully pushed to delay the vote. The district’s alderman initially backed the proposed slaughterhouse on account of its potential to provide jobs and accused activists of “selective indignation” Ultimately, however, citing an “overwhelming response from neighbors in opposition to the project,” he changed his mind. The slaughterhouse company pulled out.

Zignego says the campaign aimed for an “intersectional” approach, arguing that the deleterious effects she associates with slaughterhouses—noise, pollution, and low-quality work—animated the activists just as did straightforward animal welfare concerns.

But there can also be tensions when human and nonhuman interests appear to diverge. The fur debates which have raged in California and New York—where the City Council speaker proposed a ban earlier this year—have in some cases stoked resentments along racial lines. The president of California’s Black Business Association, for instance, accused the anti-fur campaign of “ignorance,” citing the cultural significance of fur among black women. Corporations help fuel these tensions: The Intercept found that some California fur advocates received previously undisclosed payments from an industry organization.

Some activists acknowledge that many high-profile movement victories—even substantive ones—can feel somewhat parochial: Queen Elizabeth fur free; Pfizer banned a forced swim test, Walmart ends live fish sales. But many believe such narrower campaigns can effectively pave the way for change on a larger scale.

The Berkeley, Calif.-based grassroots advocacy group Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) pushed for the statewide fur ban, but press coordinator Matt Johnson clarified the specificity of the issue did not reflect the scope of the group’s ambitions, which include the end of all animal exploitation for food, clothing, science and entertainment. But the statewide law, following municipal fur bans implemented in municipalities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, is consistent with the pattern laid forth in DxE’s 40-year “strategic roadmap.” This roadmap emphasizes local seed activism—with Berkeley as the epicenter—to forcefully push the proverbial Overton Window, fundamentally transforming how the public and the legal system conceive of nonhuman animals.

DxE formed this decade, and has gained prominence through its “open rescue” actions whereby activists enter a farm without authorization, document conditions and take with them animals in need. The strategy, which predates the organization, strives to extend legal precedent and to publicize mistreatment of animals. The group takes particular aim at source farms for retailers like Whole Foods that advertise as more humane.

A meat industry report showed that, while 2017 saw a slightly reduced volume of meat sales from the previous year, sales of meat with “production claims” like “antibiotic-free” or “organic” increased by more than 38%. For Johnson, this dual trend embodies the shortfalls of consumer-based rhetoric, which he doubts can galvanize the fundamental change he desires. Unti from HSUS sees validity in such criticisms, but still takes heart in the fact that more consumers experience a moral churn as they choose their eggs.

Ultimately, both activists agreed the movement must shake its reputation of self-righteousness—justified or not—to be successful.

Critics, Unti says, have charged that animal rights activists are “good at one thing: saying 'shh, tsk tsk.' Telling people what they should not do.”

“The message is so much centered around ‘go vegan,’ ” Johnson says. “It gives people this impression that you’re either in the snobby holier-than-thou club that no one really wants to be in, or anyone in that club thinks that you’re an evil person.”

Instead, he suggests, advocates’ message should be “systems-focused. People are on your side if you can craft that message. It feels like we should be at the tipping point.”

Nigel Farage Defends Trump's 'Grab 'Em By The P*ssy' Remarks

 Cache   

During an ITV general election debate among party leaders in the UK, Brexit party leader Nigel Farage sent the debate off the rails when he attempted to defend his friend Trump's "grab 'em by the p*ssy" remarks, bragging about sexually assaulting women in an Access Hollywood video.

Here's more from the Mirror which covered some of the highlights, or lowlights, if you will:

1. Nigel Farage defending his pal Trump's boasts about sexual assault

Nigel Farage faced fury in tonight's ITV election debate after he made excuses for Donald Trump's jibe about grabbing women "by the p***y".

The Brexit Party leader said the comments were unacceptable but moaned, "Men say dreadful things sometimes", such as on a "night out after a drink."

He made the claim despite the fact the US President, who boasted of the sexual assaults in 2005, is a teetotaler and made the comments during the daytime.

When Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson expressed shock at the comments Mr Farage told her condescendingly: "I'm sure you’ve lived the purest life of everybody!"

She said: "Is that what you do on a night out after a drink?"

I'm sure Farage knows Trump doesn't drink, but this is what people will resort to when defending the indefensible.


          

Alan Dershowitz Rants About 'Quasi-Criminal' Impeachment: 'Congress Is Not Above The Law'

 Cache   

Law professor Alan Dershowitz asserted on Sunday that House Democrats are exercising their constitutional right to impeach President Donald Trump in a "quasi-criminal" way.

"Congress is not above the law," Dershowitz complained to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo. "They just can't make it up as they go along. The constitution provides specific criteria for impeachment. And I think these hearing demonstrate beyond any doubt that these criteria haven't been met."

Dershowitz, who defended Trump throughout special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, complained that "all" of the Democrats' objections to Trump are "about policy."

"Nothing that I've seen during the these weeks of impeachment testimony has moved the ball at all toward impeachment," Dershowitz opined. "If he's impeached, it will be partisan."

Bartiromo noted that Republicans have focused on "process" arguments like complaining about which witnesses can be called.

"It's very, very unfair," Dershowitz agreed. "I mean, the impeachment process is quasi-criminal in nature. And the person being accused is supposed to have rights comparable to the rights of somebody being accused of a crime."

"The Constitution talks about high crimes and misdemeanors," he continued. "And yet, the process has been skewed and one-sided and partisan."

Dershowitz predicted that impeachment "can't go forward to the Senate without a full opportunity to cross-examine all of the relevant witnesses" including the person who initially blew the whistle on Trump.

Fox Host Wrings His Hands Over 'Jerry-Rigged' Impeachment Hearings

The Impeachment (Hearings) of Donald Trump are picking up steam. After a month of closed door hearings and then two weeks of open, televised testimony, the Impeachment process is moving to the House Judiciary Committee beginning this Wednesday, December 4th. The New York Times is reporting that the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Jerry Nadler, sent a letter to Donald Trump on Friday requesting that he notify the committee if he plans to mount a defense (aka, due process) by this Friday, December 6th.

Trump has until 5:00pm to respond. He has been given the opportunity to present evidence and witnesses. The letter specifically said:

“Please provide the committee with notice of whether your counsel intends to participate, specifying which of the privileges your counsel seeks to exercise."

The letter further goes on to state that in addition to the Ukraine bribery, the committee has also been investigating accusations of possible impeachable offenses and crimes raised in the Mueller Report.

Ruth Marcus To GOP: If Trump Scandal Doesn't Meet 'The Framers' Conception Of Bribery, What Does?'

 Cache   

Longtime columnist Ruth Marcus on Sunday dared Republican lawmakers to argue that President Donald Trump did not "bribe" Ukraine as the term was defined by the Framers of the U.S. Constitution.

Marcus was joined on CBS's Face the Nation by veteran reporters and presidential historians.

Host John Dickerson noted that the impeachment debate touched on "bedrock American values."

Historian Jon Meachum explained that the Framers of the Constitution expected future Americans to "screw everything up."

"And we've done everything we can since then to prove them right," he said. "Therefore, sovereignty had to be divided. Power cannot be given to one person in the republican -- lowercase 'r' -- contract. Impeachment was a very important element there."

According to Meachum, the central question is whether House lawmakers "are going to follow the facts or are they... going to reflexively be partisan and interpret reality, not as they see it, but as they wish to see it."

Dickerson noted that Marcus is an expert on so-called originalism, the idea that the Constitution's meaning does not change with the culture. It is an idea that is popular with many conservatives.

"It is really a political question that is up to the political branch," she remarked. "But, yes, the Framers were entirely worried about precisely the kind of event we're talking about here, foreign influence, the misuse of presidential power for public gain and political advantage -- rather than for the public good."

Fox Guest Lies About Ukraine Aid Block, Accuses Dems Of Impeachment For 'Thought Crimes'

National Review writer Victor Davis Hanson made an appearance on this Friday's The Story with Martha MacCallum on Fox News, and his defense of Trump was so ridiculous that even guest host Ed Henry (who usually goes out of his way to carry water for Trump) corrected him on the fact that the aid to Ukraine was indeed delayed. Of course Henry failed to tell his audience that the aid was only released after the administration learned about the whistle-blower.

After Henry pointed out that the aid was indeed delayed, Hanson just turned on a dime and told Henry that Trump had every right to delay the aid, which he doesn't. Henry couldn't be bothered to fact-check Hanson on that lie either.

'Who Is Obstructing?' Jason Chaffetz Buried In Scorn After Calling Trump The 'Victim' Of Impeachment

 Cache   

Former Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) argued on Sunday that President Donald Trump is the "victim" of an impeachment investigation.

During a panel discussion about impeachment on FOX News Sunday, National Review editor Rich Lowry observed that Democrats "have to impeach" at this point.

Lowry, however, complained that Democratic lawmakers have refused to wait on court battles to decide whether Trump's advisers can testify.

"I think that's why history will look dimly on this process," he said.

Panelist Juan Williams noted that Republicans are complaining that Democrats have scheduled impeachment hearings while the president is out of the country. Williams said that Trump's 3.5-hour visit to Afghanistan for Thanksgiving was likely an attempt at distraction.

Chaffetz countered: "The Democrats continue to play into the hands of Donald Trump. No matter what the president does, he visits our troops in Afghanistan, he's going to the NATO meetings next month... that is so fundamentally wrong."

"And again," Chaffetz continued, "going into 2020, Donald Trump looks like the victim, looks like the D.C. outsider and he will gain more political support."

"Who is obstructing?" Williams interrupted. "Why who is keeping [White House acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney] from testifying?"

Emergenza clima: dall’ONU l’ultimo avvertimento prima dell’Apocalisse

 Cache   
https://www.aneddoticamagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/Francis_Danby_-_The_Deluge_-_Google_Art_Project.jpg

Gli impegni di Parigi sulle emissioni di CO2 non bastano più, entro il 2050, 300 milioni di persone saranno sommerse dal mare


L’ONU ha calcolato che senza nuove restrizioni sulle emissioni, le temperature globali aumenterebbero mediamente di 3,2 gradi Celsius rispetto ai livelli preindustriali


Nel 2016, al termine dei lavori della COP21 a Parigi, tra una cena di gala, un evento folkloristico e una foto di gruppo, i leader mondiali promisero che avrebbero fatto di tutto per non far aumentare le temperature medie globali oltre 1,5 gradi Celsius. Non da subito, però, ma dopo molti anni: il tempo di permettere ai paesi meno sviluppati di colmare il gap che li separava dai paesi sviluppati (quelli che hanno fatto danni forse irreparabili al pianeta) in termini di industrializzazione. E di inquinare il pianeta in modo spaventoso.


Sin da subito a molti (e noi tra loro…) questo obiettivo apparve limitato, anzi quasi inutile. E certamente insufficiente per risolvere i problemi di cui si era parlato durante gli incontri a Parigi.


Poco dopo fu il turno di Trump che, in un colpo solo, cancellò le promesse di Obama e fece un gran regalo alle multinazionali rinnegando il rapporto di causa ed effetto (confermato da centinaia di scienziati in tutto il mondo) tra aumento delle emissioni di CO2 e effetti antropici.


Tra COP invero blande in termini di impegni e risultati, governi che rinunciano ad ospitare la COP del 2019 e “seconde scelte” impossibilitate a causa della crisi in Cile (paese “supplente” per realizzare la COP nel 2019), si è arrivati alla fine del 2019 senza sapere quali saranno concretamente gli impegni dei paesi più potenti per salvare il pianeta. Si perché è questo il problema. Come ricorda l’UNEP, il 78% di tutte le emissioni, è causato dai paesi che fanno parte del G20. Eppure, finora, solo cinque di questi ha adottato norme che potrebbero permettere di raggiungere l’obiettivo “zero emissioni” entro il 2050.



Ma il tempo per salvare il pianeta è sempre di meno. Anzi, pare che la situazione stia peggiorando molto più velocemente del previsto. A lanciare l’allarme è un rapporto delle Nazioni Unite appena pubblicato. Anche se i paesi dovessero rispettare gli impegni assunti a Parigi e ridurre le emissioni di CO2, le temperature globali aumenterebbero mediamente di 3,2 gradi Celsius rispetto ai livelli preindustriali. Più del doppio dell’aumento di 1,5 gradi promesso a Parigi (e mai mantenuto). Le conseguenze potrebbero essere devastanti. Secondo gli esperti che hanno scritto il rapporto, per ottenere qualche risultato le emissioni dovrebbero diminuire del 7,6 per cento ogni anno per i prossimi dieci anni.


Purtroppo pare che si stia andando in direzione opposta: secondo l’Organizzazione Meteorologica Mondiale, nel 2018, le emissioni di CO2 hanno raggiunto un nuovo record con 407,8 ppm (il cosiddetto “punto di non ritorno” era 400 ppm). E il tasso di crescita tra il 2017 e il 2018 è stato più alto della media degli ultimi dieci anni.



“La nostra incapacità collettiva di agire tempestivamente e duramente sui cambiamenti climatici significa che ora dobbiamo apportare profondi tagli alle emissioni”, ha detto Inger Andersen, direttore esecutivo dell’UNEP, che poi ha aggiunto:


“Abbiamo bisogno di risultati rapidi per ridurre il più possibile le emissioni nel 2020, quindi di contributi determinati a livello nazionale più forti per avviare le principali trasformazioni delle economie e delle società. Dobbiamo stare al passo con la tabella di marcia che ci eravamo dati”, ha aggiunto. “Se non lo facciamo, l’obiettivo di 1,5° C sarà fuori portata prima del 2030. Per contenere l’aumento della temperatura globale entro i 2 gradi, gli stati devono triplicare i livelli degli obiettivi climatici previsti. Se invece si punta a +1,5 gradi, gli sforzi devono essere quintuplicati”.


Anche in Italia il clima è già cambiato. A dimostrarlo non sono solo le inondazioni dei giorni scorsi a Venezia, Matera e Pisa, ma una lista lunghissima di eventi meteorologici estremi che colpiscono la penisola con sempre maggiore frequenza. Piogge, trombe d’aria e ondate di calore si verificano con frequenza e intensità sempre crescenti e destinate ad aumentare. E ogni volta i danni sono sempre maggiori. Dal 2010 ad oggi, sulla mappa del rischio climatico, sono stati registrati 563 eventi di questo tipo, che hanno avuto effetti rilevanti in 350 comuni. Solo nel 2018, in Italia sono stati registrati 148 eventi estremi, che hanno causato danni alle persone (oltre 4.500 sfollati) e danni incalcolabili. Tra il 2014 e il 2018, in Italia, sono morte 68 persone solo a causa di inondazioni. E, come confermano i dati dell’Osservatorio meteorologico Milano Duomo, le temperature presentano già oggi un aumento di 1,5 gradi Celsius (a Milano) e una media nazionale delle aree urbane di +0,8 gradi tra il 2001 e il 2018 rispetto alla media del periodo 1971-2000. Non nel 2050: oggi (anzi ieri).


A fronte di un aumento repentino delle temperature medie, si registra un altro fenomeno rilevante: la carenza di acqua potabile: è vero che piove sempre più forte, ma nei bacini c’è sempre meno acqua e l’accesso all’acqua rischia di diventare sempre più difficile da gestire. Al Sud, come situazione generale, ma anche nei quattro principali bacini idrografici italiani (Po, Adige, Arno e Tevere) dove le portate medie annue hanno registrato una riduzione media complessiva del 39,6% rispetto alla media del trentennio 1981-2010.


Per contro, in molte città italiane, preoccupa non poco l’innalzamento del livello dei mari. Non solo a Venezia: secondo le elaborazioni dell’Enea, sarebbero 40 le aree a maggior rischio in Italia. Oltre a Venezia anche città come Trieste, Ravenna, la foce del Pescara, il golfo di Taranto, La Spezia, Cagliari, Oristano, Trapani, Marsala, Gioia Tauro….


I ricercatori di Climate Central pubblicata (i risultati della loro ricerca sono stati pubblicati sulla rivista Nature), hanno detto che se i ghiacciai continueranno a sciogliersi al ritmo attuale, entro il 2050, 300 milioni di persone che vivono in aree costiere saranno sommerse dal mare almeno una volta l’anno. E le barriere fisiche costruite saranno inutili (anche se dovessero essere potenziate). E pensare che per costruire il MOSE che dovrebbe proteggere solo Venezia (e le altre città?) sono già stati spesi oltre 5 miliardi di Euro….


Dopo aver scorso questi dati che molti definirebbero apocalittici, la cosa più preoccupante è che molti paesi continuano a non volersi dotare di leggi e misure per fronteggiare questa situazione. In Italia, nel 2014, venne approvata la Strategia nazionale di adattamento ai cambiamenti climatici. Ma non si può fare molto dato che manca ancora il Piano nazionale di adattamento ai cambiamenti climatici, lo strumento che consentirebbe di passare dal campo degli studi a uno strumento reale, di passare dalle parole ai fatti (il Rapporto Ecosistema Rischio di Legambiente conferma, ad esempio, che in molti comuni si continuano a realizzare “tombamenti” di corsi d’acqua e a dare il via libera a edificazioni in aree a rischio. E secondo i dati ISPRA, in Italia, dal 1998 al 2018, sarebbero stati spesi circa 5,6 miliardi di euro per opere di prevenzione del rischio idrogeologico, a fronte di circa 20 miliardi di euro spesi per “riparare” i danni del dissesto secondo dati del CNR e della Protezione civile).


Nonostante le promesse, le conferenzele marce, gli scioperi (29 novembre è previsto il quarto Sciopero globale per il clim), le starlette di turno (sempre più giovani e sempre più accalorate nei loro discorsi) e gli appelli della comunità scientifica, la strada intrapresa sembra diretta verso un netto peggioramento. Anche la Cina, che in un primo momento sembrava voler prendere il posto degli USA come paladino delle politiche per il cambiamento climatico, in realtà adotta politiche che vanno nella direzione opposta. Secondo uno studio di Global Energy Monitor, tra l’inizio del 2018 e il mese di giugno del 2019, la capacità delle centrali nel paese sarebbe incrementata di 43 GW. Un dato che dovrebbe far riflettere se si pensa che nello stesso periodo, nel resto del pianeta, il cambiamento è stato di “soli” 8,1 GW. Ma non basta: una parte consistente di questa energia sarà realizzata dalle centrali a carbone la cui costruzione è iniziata nell’ultimo lustro (e che certo non verranno chiuse a breve).


I cambiamenti climatici hanno ormai raggiunto dimensioni che vanno oltre quanto si dice nei normali media che spesso sono “influenzati” dai giusti influencer a colpi di miliardi: a denunciarlo è stata  InfluenceMap che ha esaminato 15 organizzazioni collegate al settore petrolifero e del gas statunitense e ha scoperto che queste società avrebbero speso ben 17 milioni di dollari da maggio 2018 ad oggi per fornire informazioni poco attedibili sui cambiamenti climatici e sugli impatti che hanno i combustibili fossili sulla crisi climatica.


Cambiamenti climatici che ormai sono entrate a pieno titolo nella vita di tutti: al punto che il dizionario inglese Oxford ha attribuito a “emergenza climatica” il titolo di parola dell’anno 2019. La sua definizione sarebbe è “una situazione dove è necessaria un’azione urgente per ridurre i cambiamenti climatici ed evitare conseguenti danni ambientali potenzialmente irreversibili”. 


E mentre i leader mondiali stanno ancora pensando a cosa mangiare durante la COP del 2020 che si terrà a Glasgow in Scozia, gli effetti geopolitici dei cambiamenti climatici in atto sono già sotto gli occhi di tutti (anche di quelli che fingono di non vederli): piogge violente, alluvioni, siccità e desertificazione degradano il suolo e strappano fette sempre più ampie di terreno nelle regioni più povere dell’Africa, del Medio Oriente, dell’Asia e dell’America latina. La conseguenza è l’aumento delle migrazioni, sia all’interno che oltre le frontiere dei singoli stati. Ormai non si parla più di rifugiati e nemmeno di migranti economici. Presto non sarà più possibile fingere di non sapere che i migranti sono sempre più migranti climatici. Ma di questo, la COP del 2019 forse non parlerà….

Trump Pertimbangkan Hapus Tarif Impor China untuk Apple

Setelah meninjau pabrik perakitan komputer Apple Inc, Presiden AS Donald Trump, Rabu (20/11), mengatakan sedang mempertimbangkan apakah akan membebaskan perusahaan Amerika itu dari pengenaan tarif impor untuk barang-barang dari China. "Kami sedang mempelajari," ujar Trump menjawab pertanyaan wartawan tentang tarif itu, setelah berkeliling pabrik perakitan komputer meja Mac Pro di Austin, Texas, bersama CEO Apple Tim Cook.  Cook, yang memiliki hubungan yang kuat dengan Trump, telah meminta agar Apple dibebaskan dari tarif impor itu. AS menerapkan tarif impor atas barang-barang dari China sebagai bagian dari perang dagang selama berbulan-bulan antara kedua ekonomi terbesar di dunia. Apple mengumumkan September lalu akan membuat komputer Mac Pro baru di Austin. Pengumuman itu datang beberapa hari setelah regulator perdagangan Amerika menyetujui 10 dari 15 permintaan pembebasan tarif yang diajukan Apple. Awal bulan ini, Apple juga meminta pemerintah Trump menghapus tarif pada Apple Watches yang dibuat di China, komponen iPhone dan produk-produk konsumen lainnya. Trump menjadikan peningkatan sektor manufaktur salah satu kebijakannya. Di Twitter ia mendesak perusahaan-perusahaan Amerika agar membuka usahanya di dalam negeri.[ka/pp]

As Ralph Nader recently wrote on Truthdig, Trump deserves to be impeached and removed from office along with his gang of corporate goons for his attempts to turn the biosphere into a simmering greenhouse gas chamber.

Well it has been another week and impeachment fever is receding. Several democrats have come out against it, perhaps sensing that support has dropped for impeachment and the facts are not as strong as originally hoped for. It will be interesting to read the intelligence committee report and see how they massage the facts to try to make an impeachable offense out of them. This is where it will all start to fall apart (I believe). Bribery isn't going to sell, so it sounds like they will default to obstruction and maybe throw in some of the Mueller stuff - I guess we will see. Then the action will shift to the justice committee - that will be interesting. I cannot wait to see what they actually draft up for the articles of impeachment. That should be interesting and entertaining. Lots of popcorn consumed this week. I predict that Trump will choose not to participate and hold all his cards for the Senate trial.

<blockquote>But what Trump did in that call is much less than treason.</blockquote> Trump's done much else that would be formally identified as treason in most other countries, and it would be so identified in the USA were it only for a formal recognition of a state of war. Ironically Putin has as good as declared cyber war on the USA, by hacking and by manipulating social media for propaganda purposes, and the Trump administration has turned a blind eye to the fact: not only does this aid Putin in his attack against the USA, it provides cover for Trump's behaviour in aiding and providing comfort to Putin's attacks.

There is absolutely no point rushing in and arresting all of the Swamp's denizens if the swampy judges are just going to let them all go like they did with the Antifa members who were charged with various felonies. First, it's necessary to transform the federal judiciary.
HISTORIC RESTORATION OF THE JUDICIARY: President Trump is transforming our judiciary – appointing a historic number of Federal judges who will interpret the Constitution as written.
  • Working with the Senate, President Trump has now had 158 judicial nominees confirmed to the Federal bench – a historic transformation of the judiciary.
  • President Trump has nominated and had confirmed, two Supreme Court justices, 44 Circuit Court judges, and 112 District Court judges.
  • President Trump has appointed more circuit judges by this point in his presidency than any president in recent history.
  • Approximately 1 out of every 4 active judges on United States Courts of Appeals has been appointed by President Trump.
  • This historic transformation is only accelerating, with President Trump on pace to have more judges confirmed this year than in 2017 and 2018 combined.
This also puts the lie to those who claim President Trump hasn't done anything. What he's been doing is laying the foundation for substantive and meaningful action that will last beyond his two terms.
          

The desperation of the Deep State

 Cache   
They know none of the Democratic candidates can defeat the God-Emperor. So they've turned directly to one of their own:
Billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, one of the world’s richest men, has formally launched a Democratic bid for president.

Ending weeks of speculation, the 77-year-old former Republican announced his candidacy Sunday in a written statement posted on a campaign website describing himself as uniquely positioned to defeat President Donald Trump. He will quickly follow with a massive advertising campaign blanketing airways in key primary states across the U.S.

“I’m running for president to defeat Donald Trump and rebuild America,” Bloomberg wrote.

“We cannot afford four more years of President Trump’s reckless and unethical actions,” he continued. “He represents an existential threat to our country and our values. If he wins another term in office, we may never recover from the damage.”

As a centrist with deep ties to Wall Street, Bloomberg is expected to struggle among the party’s energized progressive base. He became a Democrat only last year. Yet his tremendous resources and moderate profile could be appealing in a primary contest that has become, above all, a quest to find the person best-positioned to deny Trump a second term next November. Forbes ranked Bloomberg as the 11th-richest person in the world last year with a net worth of roughly $50 billion.
And by "we", you understand that he doesn't mean us, kemosabes. Wall Street is obviously scared.

Kemp Grapples With Senate Appointment Decision As Trump, Everyone Else Weighs In

 Cache   
Gov. Brian Kemp has a big decision to make: who will be Georgia’s next U.S. Senator? The first-term Republican has leaned towards Kelly Loeffler, an Atlanta businesswoman who co-owns the local WNBA team and runs a bitcoin trading and storage company. But President Trump, whose Twitter endorsement helped push Kemp to a gubernatorial primary victory, has called for Rep. Doug Collins (R-Gainesville) to be selected. The stakes are high: that person will have to run in a special election next fall, a potential runoff election in January 2020 and a regular election in 2022, when Kemp is up for re-election. And Democrats fresh off the heels of a Democratic presidential primary debate in Atlanta are looking to capitalize on demographic changes and dissatisfaction with Trump to flip both Senate seats and the presidential contest into their column come November.

In Afghanistan, Trump Creates Confusion Over U.S. Policy on Taliban

 Cache   

In Afghanistan, Trump Creates Confusion Over U.S. Policy on TalibanKABUL, Afghanistan -- After abruptly axing nearly a year of delicate peace talks with the Taliban in September, President Donald Trump put the negotiations back on the front-burner this week in a similarly jolting fashion by seeming to demand a cease-fire that his negotiators had long concluded was overly ambitious.Despite a sense of relief at the prospect of resuming talks to end the 18-year conflict, Western diplomats and Taliban leaders were scrambling to figure out whether Trump had suddenly moved the goal posts for negotiations.They were particularly confused by his remarks, made during an unannounced Thanksgiving visit to Afghanistan, that the United States was once again meeting with the Taliban to discuss a deal but that "we're saying it has to be a cease-fire."Demanding a cease-fire would amount to a big shift in the U.S. position and require a significant new concession from the Taliban -- one that Americans have little leverage to extract.For much of the yearlong talks, the Taliban and the United States were fundamentally on the same page: The Taliban wanted the Americans out of Afghanistan, and Trump has made no secret his desire to end what he has called the U.S.' unending wars. But agreeing upon the details of a deal proved complicated.In the agreement the two sides were on the verge of finalizing before Trump pulled the plug, the best U.S. negotiators could get the Taliban to consent to was some reduction in violence. Discussions on a comprehensive cease-fire were relegated to future talks between the Taliban and Afghan leaders -- only after the United States had pledged, and begun, to withdraw its troops.But Thursday, Trump suggested the Taliban position had shifted."They didn't want to do a cease-fire, but now they do want to do a cease-fire, I believe," he said. "And it will probably work out that way. And we'll see what happens."The Taliban seemed surprised by Trump's declaration. While the group's negotiators have held informal meetings with U.S. diplomats in recent weeks about ways to go back to the table, on Friday their leaders said their original position on a cease-fire had not changed."The Americans walked away from the negotiating table, and now the ball is in their side; it is up to them to come back if they want to solve this and get the document to signing and to the stage of implementation," Suhail Shaheen, a member of the Taliban's negotiation team, told The New York Times. "Our positions remain the same."It's unclear how U.S. negotiators could get the Taliban to agree to a cease-fire now, when they were not able to do so earlier.The U.S. military has already begun scaling back its presence in the country, giving negotiators even less leverage than they had before. Last month, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Austin Miller, said the number of troops had been reduced by 2,000 over the past year.Trump, on Thursday, said he was "bringing down the number of troops substantially."For the Afghan president, Ashraf Ghani, Trump's statements were welcome. For months, Ghani had unsuccessfully tried to persuade Americans not to give away a U.S. troop withdrawal without a cease-fire because that would leave his government even more vulnerable.The government has already been weakened by being excluded from the talks so far because the Taliban refuse to engage before a U.S. troop withdrawal.Now, suddenly, Trump gave Ghani's position a boost at a difficult time for him, when he is stuck in a bitter fight over his reelection in a disputed vote, which is tipping the country to crisis.Ghani met with Trump at the Bagram Airfield on the eve of large protests by supporters of his rival, Abdullah Abdullah. Much of the Afghan capital was under lockdown by security forces Friday morning as thousands marched to a roundabout behind the presidential palace demanding fraudulent votes be thrown out.Abdullah accuses the country's election commission of including 300,000 questionable votes in favor of Ghani.Ghani and Abdullah are partners in a coalition government brokered by the United States when a similar disputed election between the two went to a stalemate in 2014. The current power dispute dividing the country has added to the complications of resuming the peace efforts.The hope is that peace talks would eventually lead to direct negotiations between the Taliban and Afghan leaders over the political future of the country after the United States commits to withdrawing its remaining troops, currently about 13,000 or fewer.Keeping the peace process alive after Trump canceled talks in September has required quiet, delicate diplomacy, including work that resulted in a prisoner swap and some reduction in violence. Trump's latest interjection in what has been a tedious diplomatic balancing act will once again have his negotiators scrambling to try to pull off what many Western officials have described as an unrealistic goal.The Taliban see a cease-fire before the signing of a deal for the end of the U.S. military presence as an existential issue. They believe they will not be able to rally their forces again if they ask their fighters to stop fighting and then the deal breaks down.But the government of Ghani has said negotiating the future cannot happen under the barrel of a gun, demanding a cease-fire as a precondition to any talks.When Trump called off the talks, the Taliban realized they had pushed their hand too far by continuing to launch attacks just days before what was expected to be a signing of the deal. In recent weeks, U.S. diplomats convinced the group to significantly reduce large attacks in the Afghan capital as part of the prisoner swap that saw the release of a U.S. and Australian hostage in return for senior Taliban leaders.But delivering a comprehensive, declared cease-fire is always going to be difficult internally for a movement that is trying to maintain unity as it negotiates potentially divisive issues.One Western official aware of the latest peace developments said he had not seen a tangible shift in the Taliban's position on a cease-fire during the period the talks were called off. The official expressed concern that if the Taliban were forced to reject Trump's apparent demand of a cease-fire to keep their own ranks united, that could further complicate the formal resumption of the negotiations."There's probably now some work for U.S. diplomats to do to clarify to the Taliban what did the imprecise words actually mean, and whether or not there is a change in position," said Laurel Miller, a former U.S. diplomat who is now the Asia director of the think tank International Crisis Group."The U.S. has been looking for something in the realm of the reduction in violence," she added, "but the idea that the U.S. is on the same page with Ghani on cease-fire being a precondition -- I don't see that at all."This article originally appeared in The New York Times.(C) 2019 The New York Times Company

Britain: Most important election in a generation

 Cache   
Issue 
November 28, 2019

Britain goes to the polls on December 12, in what could be the most important general election in a generation. Boris Johnson’s increasingly right-wing and chaotic Conservative Party is generally seen as the likely victor, but Labour’s left-wing leader Jeremy Corbyn could once again surprise commentators. Whatever the result, the ongoing story of Britain’s crisis of identity and its relationship with the European Union (EU) is likely to continue.

Currently, polls make depressing reading for those of us on the left. The governing Conservatives are polling a steady 10% more than Labour, and in a winner-takes-all first-past-the-post voting system, are on target for a landslide victory.

Boris Johnson was elected Conservative leader and thus Prime Minister in August. He has had a rocky ride, taking his governing majority down to minus 43, after expelling MPs who would not support his hardline anti-European stance. However, his main policy to fix the Brexit crisis and negotiate an exit from the EU looks like a winning strategy.

Since the referendum in 2016, when Britons narrowly voted to leave the EU, the European question has dominated British politics. Voters, whether for or against Brexit, are weary with delay and uncertainty, and look likely to be persuaded by a promise to finally leave and settle the debate, so things can move on.

Media backs Boris

The British media are fully behind Boris. There are suggestions that the BBC have edited news footage to make Boris Johnson look better.

The pro-EU remain vote is split between several political parties and the pro-leave camp is increasingly firmly voting for the Conservatives. The right-wing Brexit Party is refusing to contest Conservative seats. A recent poll by the Economist magazine puts the Conservatives well ahead of Labour with 44% of the vote in the previous solidly Labour but pro-leave working-class constituency of Great Grimsby.

Britain’s billionaires and hedge funds have been pouring money into the Conservative campaign.

Every day since he was elected Labour leader back in 2015, Jeremy Corbyn has been attacked relentlessly, labelled an anti-Semite and a friend of terrorists. Former Labour MP Ian Austin was wheeled out in the first week of the election, to condemn Corbyn and insist that Labour voters should vote for the Conservatives.

The election result could lead to a large majority for an increasingly right-wing Conservative Party. More centre-right MPs have been expelled from the party and Johnson is known to be close to United States President Donald Trump. Trump will be visiting Britain shortly before the election and a significant trade deal with the US could see the reengineering of British society.

Britain’s beloved National Health Service, a socialist medical institution, could be privatised and sold to US health corporations, as part of any Trump deal. Trexit, a Brexit favouring Trump, could result in an assault on trade unions, animal welfare conditions and environmental standards.

Johnson is taking other lessons from the Trump playbook. If elected, he has promised to introduce identity checks to make voting more difficult and is likely to redraw constituency boundaries to cement Conservative domination in future elections.

The Centre for Social Justice, a Conservative-sympathetic think tank, has revealed plans to raise the pension age from 67 years to as much as 75.

However, a Conservative victory is less likely than the bleak polling figures suggest. There is a possibility that in 2019 there will be a repeat of the 2017 General Election. When former Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May called an election with the promise of exiting from the EU, hoping to take working-class votes, she too was riding high in the polls.

May went to the election with even stronger polls than Johnson — on average 20%. She looked likely to win a huge majority on a right-wing programme. Instead, on election day the Conservatives polled 42%, closely followed by Corbyn’s party on 40% and she lost her majority.

Media campaign against Corbyn

Corbyn is unpopular with the British media and some older voters, but he still has a number of advantages. His clear left-wing program for tackling climate change and ending austerity has allowed Labour to build a membership of more than half a million people. This gives it a formidable election machine able to mobilise voters on election day.

Corbyn is also very popular among young voters, who have been registering to vote in record numbers. “Grime4Corbyn” is just one dimension of the rush from musicians to support him. Corbyn has performed well in the first two General Election debates and the more voters see of him in action the more they like him.

The third party, the centre-right Liberal Democrats, seems to be being squeezed. While strongly pro-EU, the party looks likely to support the Conservatives, as it did in the governing coalition between 2010–15. However, there is huge pressure to vote tactically for Labour in key marginal constituencies to beat the Conservatives.

Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson was ridiculed after a poor performance in a televised debate. Her assertion that she would press the button and launch a nuclear war if necessary has also gone down badly. A bizarre social media hoax that she hated squirrels and hunted them with a rifle has also gone down badly in a nation of animal lovers.

All this helps Corbyn. However, it is far from certain that Labour will close the gap this time around and the election race has a number of additional complexities.

In the north of Ireland, where the Conservatives are a fringe party without MPs and Labour does not run candidates, whoever wins the present government loses.

The right-wing sectarian Democratic Unionists, who feel betrayed by Johnson after supporting his government, won’t help him in a future parliament.

A range of pro-remain parties, including Sinn Fein and the Greens, have stood down candidates in key constituencies to maximise the vote of anti-sectarian and pro-EU candidates.

In Scotland, the Scottish National Party (SNP) has risen sharply in the polls and looks likely to take constituencies from both Labour and the Conservatives. While Labour has traditionally been a pro-union party and has lost support to the SNP, it is possible that the SNP would give a Labour minority government support after December 12, perhaps in return for a new referendum on Scottish independence.

Greens

The Green Party of England and Wales is running more than 470 candidates.

The Scottish Green Party is an independent party and the Northern Irish Greens is a regional party in the Republic of Ireland.

In 2017, it promoted a progressive alliance to challenge the Conservatives. This proved unpopular with Green Party members and Labour refused to participate. This time, it is running a controversial “remain alliance” with Welsh party Plaid Cymru and the Liberal Democrats.

This has been condemned as a move to the right, as the Liberal Democrats supported David Cameron’s Conservative government and now includes many former Conservative MPs.

There is also a risk that Greens candidates will split the vote in some marginal constituencies and deliver victory to Johnson. However, in a number of marginal seats such as Canterbury, the Greens have stood down.

The complexities of the British political scene make any description of the situation difficult. However, a Labour Party fighting on a clear socialist program might just win and change British political history.

Corbyn has promised a new vote on the EU and is perhaps the only leader trying to bridge the divisions on the EU among British voters. Whether he can win — in the face of a well-funded right-wing Conservative Party, strongly supported by the media, Trump and Britain’s billionaires — remains to be seen.

Corbyn certainly has some fight in him and is boldly in solidarity with all those in struggle. Typically, he tweeted in support of striking university workers: “Staff at universities are striking over the next eight days, and I stand with them. University staff deserve fair pay, secure contracts, reasonable workloads and decent pensions. Labour will end the marketisation of education, and we'll put staff and students first.”

With a wave of strikes, including by university lecturers and rail workers, it is clear that militancy is rising in Britain, so win or lose on December 12, the Conservatives face an increasingly united and vibrant left.

Trump’s impeachment and the US ‘national interest’

 Cache   
Issue 
November 28, 2019

The Democratic impeachment inquiry began when a “whistleblower” revealed that US President Donald Trump had pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open an investigation of former vice-president Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Trump suspended military aid to Ukraine and made a White House visit by Zelensky — which the new Ukrainian president dearly wanted — conditional on him stating publically that such an investigation was underway.

Since the elder Biden is a possible Democratic opponent of Trump in the 2020 presidential campaign, the purpose of Trump’s demand was to get material that he could use against Biden should he become the Democratic nominee.

To demand of a foreign government that it work to help Trump personally is against the law.

A few days after the whistleblower’s complaint was made public, Trump beat a hasty retreat: he released the military aid and Zelensky never made the statement.

Trump’s violation of the law is relatively unimportant compared to his other crimes that do not form part of the impeachment inquiry: his administration’s war on asylum seekers on the US–Mexico border; his Muslim travel ban; increasing the extraction of fossil fuels; racism; misogyny and more.

Capital’s interests

From the beginning of the inquiry, the Democrats and the pro-Democratic media have introduced another line: Trump’s withholding of military aid was, they say, an attack on “national security” or “America’s interests”. In the final weeks of testimony before the House committee conducting the inquiry, this charge has been highlighted.

When capitalist politicians use terms like “national security” they are invariably referring to the interests of US imperialism. Withholding military aid to Ukraine was a violation of US imperialism’s interests, but not the interests of US workers.

The interests of US imperialism in Ukraine are both economic and political.

Ukraine is rich in natural resources, especially its fertile “black soil” agricultural lands and natural gas. It was a prized possession of the Russian Tsarist empire. It was known as the Soviet Union’s “bread basket”. German imperialism sought to capture these resources in both World War I and II.

Following the overthrow of the Soviet Union by its bureaucratic caste led by the misnamed Communist Party, and the return to capitalism, Ukraine sought relations with the US-led West as well as with capitalist Russia.

Ukraine has two main ethnic groups — Ukrainian-speakers and Russian-speakers. The former are mainly in western Ukraine and the latter in the east and south. At times Ukrainian-speakers occupied the presidency, and before 2014, the president was a Russian-speaker. 

This equilibrium was upset in 2014 when the Russian-speaking president was overthrown. A more right-wing government was installed that began to restrict democratic rights, especially of Russian-speakers. Russian, which had been one of the officially recognised national languages, was stripped of that status. A civil war ensued between the east and west, with Russia supporting the Russian-speakers and the West the government in Kiev.

US in Ukraine

This provided an opening for the US to move in, reducing Ukraine to a subordinate country dependent on Washington, with two areas in the east forming their own governments.

Contrary to US promises made at the time of the overthrow of the Soviet Union, the US brought a number of East European countries formerly in the Soviet orbit into NATO, as well as some former Soviet republics. If Ukraine was to become part of NATO, that would bring the US-sponsored military alliance to the Russian border.

In 2014, it appeared that the new Ukraine would join NATO. That provides a possible explanation of why Russian President Vladimir Putin backed the breakaway regions of eastern Ukraine.

It would also explain why Russia then re-annexed Crimea.

A bit of history of Crimea is useful. Russia, under Catherine the Great, took Crimea from the Ottoman Empire in 1783. In 1853, Britain and its allies invaded Crimea but the war exhausted Britain. When the war finally ended in 1856, Crimea was once again Russian, but with the proviso that Russian warships would not be stationed at the Sevastopol port.

After the Russian Revolution in 1917 and the subsequent establishment of the USSR, Ukraine became a separate Soviet Socialist Republic (SSR) under the Bolshevik’s policy of national self-determination for nations under the former Tsarist empire. Crimea became part of the Russian Soviet Socialist Republic because of its mainly Russian population.

In 1954, the Soviet government under Nikita Khrushchev made Crimea part of the Ukrainian SSR, largely for administrative reasons. This was hardly noticed internationally as it was still part of the USSR. No one claimed that Ukraine had “stolen” Crimea from Russia.

When Ukraine became independent in 1991, various agreements were made between it and Russia. One was that Russia would have control over the former Soviet naval base in Sevastopol. If Ukraine became part of NATO, that base, the only Russian warm water port, would fall into NATO and US hands, which Russia could not tolerate.

The US still wants to get the Sevastopol naval base, which is why it is pushing for Crimea to be a part of Ukraine.

The Democrats are the champions of these “interests” today. Trump, with the Republicans dutifully in tow, is claiming that it was the Ukrainians, not the Russians, who “meddled” in the 2016 US elections to help Hillary Clinton. The Democrats claim the opposite — that the Russians meddled, giving the victory to Trump.

In fact, every government that has the technology to do so “meddles” in other countries’ politics, with Washington being the Meddler-in-Chief.

At times, when elections in other countries do not go the way the US wants, it “meddles” by overthrowing the government of the offending country.

Trump is a US phenomenon, not a Russian or Ukrainian one.

A basic feature of modern monopoly capitalism and imperialism has been the increasing centralisation of power in the hands of the executive at the expense of the legislative and judicial branches. This has been true in the US beginning in the early 20th century under both Democratic and Republican administrations.

However, the growth of executive power is not without its own perils to the ruling class. If a dictator, or would-be dictator, starts to put their personal interests above those of the capitalist class as a whole, which is what Trump has done, by withholding military aid and by attacking Ukraine while going soft on Putin, then that executive is truly harming the “national interest” of US imperialism.

Trump should be impeached on the charge of attempting to force Ukraine to further his electoral ambitions, not for harming the “national interest” of dominating Ukraine, which is not in the interests of US workers.

All this is only one aspect of the deep divisions in the ruling class concerning Trump. How this plays out in conjunction with other issues in the upcoming election campaign remains to be seen.

Digitalisierung | Die größte Propaganda-Maschine der Geschichte

„Borat“-Darsteller Sacha Baron Cohen kritisiert in einer Rede Tech-Firmen wie Facebook, YouTube, Google oder Twitter scharf. Hier können Sie sie im Wortlaut lesen
Die größte Propaganda-Maschine der Geschichte

Der britische Schauspieler und Komiker Sacha Baron Cohen hat in einer Rede Facebook und andere soziale Medienplattformen scharf kritisiert, die Verbreitung von Hassreden und Falschinformationen zu unterstützen. Seine Dankesrede für die Verleihung des International Leadership Awards der amerikanischen Anti-Defamation League (ADL), war bemerkenswert ernsthaft. Der unter anderem als „Borat“-Darsteller bekannte Komiker hielt erstmals eine Rede als er selbst und nicht als eine der satirischen Figuren, in deren Rolle er schlüpft.

Baron Cohen bezeichnete die Tech-Unternehmen als „größte Propaganda-Maschine der Geschichte“. Insbesondere kritisierte er Facebook und folgerte: Da politische Werbung nicht auf ihren Wahrheitsgehalt überprüft werde, hätte das Unternehmen auch Hitler erlaubt, die Plattform für Propaganda zu nutzen.

Die Rede nach seinem Skript im Wortlaut (hier im englischen Original):

Zunächst möchte ich der ADL für ihre Anerkennung und für ihren Einsatz im Kampf gegen Rassismus, Hass und Fanatismus danken. Und wenn ich „Rassismus, Hass und Fanatismus“ sage, meine ich nicht die Namen von Trump-Berater Stephen Millers Labradoodles.

Mancher von Ihnen wird jetzt denken: Was zum Teufel macht ein Komiker als Redner auf einer solchen Konferenz!? Und ein Komiker bin ich. Den Großteil der vergangenen zwanzig Jahre habe ich damit verbracht, verschiedene Rollen zu verkörpern. Heute ist das erste Mal in meinem Leben, dass ich als der am wenigsten beliebte meiner vielen Charaktere auf der Bühne eine Rede halte – als Sacha Baron Cohen. Und ich muss zugeben, es macht mir Angst.

Auch ist mir klar, dass mein Hiersein aus einem anderen Grund unerwartet sein könnte. Gelegentlich halten Kritiker mir vor, meine Art der Comedy berge das Risiko, alte Stereotype zu verstärken.

Aber die Wahrheit ist, dass mein Leben lang mein Anliegen war, Fanatismus und Intoleranz zu bekämpfen. Als Teenager in Großbritannien demonstrierte ich gegen die faschistische National Front und für die Abschaffung der Apartheid in Südafrika. Als Student bereiste ich Amerika und schrieb meine Abschlussarbeit über die Bürgerrechtsbewegung, wobei ich in den Archiven der Anti-Defamation League recherchierte. Und als Komiker setzte ich meine verschiedenen Rollen ein, um die Menschen dazu zu bringen, ihre Deckung aufzugeben und zu zeigen, was sie wirklich denken und ihre eigenen Vorurteile zu erkennen.

Nicht alles, was ich gemacht habe, diente einem höheren Zweck

Dabei möchte ich nicht so tun, als hätte alles, was ich gemacht habe, einem höheren Zweck gedient. Ja, ein Teil meiner Comedy – ok, wahrscheinlich die Hälfte meiner Comedy – hatte etwas Jugendliches und die andere Hälfte war komplett infantil. Ich gebe zu, dass ich nichts besonders Erleuchtendes an mir hatte, als ich – als Borat aus Kasachstan, dem allerersten Fake-News-Journalisten – komplett nackt durch eine Versammlung von Hypothekenmakler rannte.

Aber als es „Borat“ gelang, eine gesamte Bar im amerikanischen Bundesstaat Arizona dazu zu bringen, ‚Werft den Juden in den Brunnen’ zu singen, demonstrierte das die Gleichgültigkeit gegenüber Antisemitismus. Und als ich – als Bruno, der homosexuelle Mode-Reporter aus Österreich – während eines Cage Fight-Kampfes in Arkansas einen Mann küsste und damit fast einen gewaltsamen Aufruhr anzettelte, zeigte das das Gewaltpotential der Homophobie. Ein anderes Mal war ich als ultra-politisch-korrekter Stadtentwickler verkleidet und schlug vor, in einer ländlichen Gemeinde eine Moschee zu bauen. Als ein Einwohner daraufhin stolz zugab: „Ich bin rassistisch – gegen Muslime“ – sagte das viel über die Akzeptanz von Islamfeindlichkeit.

Daher freue ich mich sehr über die Gelegenheit, heute hier zu sein. Auf der ganzen Welt sprechen derzeit Demagogen unsere schlimmsten Instinkte an. Verschwörungstheorien, die früher ein Randphänomen waren, sind im Mainstream angekommen. Es ist, als gehe das Zeitalter der Vernunft – die Ära von beweisbarer Argumentation – zu Ende. Wissen wird abgewertet und wissenschaftlicher Konsens abgelehnt. Demokratie, die auf gemeinsamen Wahrheiten beruht, ist auf dem Rückzug. Dagegen sind autokratische Regierungssysteme, die auf geteilten Lügen basieren, auf dem Vormarsch. Hassverbrechen nehmen ebenso zu wie mörderische Angriffe auf religiöse und ethnische Minderheiten.

Was haben all diese gefährlichen Trends gemeinsam? Ich bin nur ein Komiker und Schauspieler, kein Wissenschaftler. Aber eins scheint mir ziemlich offensichtlich. All dieser Hass und die Gewalt werden durch ein paar wenige Internet-Unternehmen ermöglicht, die zusammen die größte Propaganda-Maschine in der Geschichte darstellen.

Die größte Propaganda-Maschine in der Geschichte

Machen Sie sich das klar. Facebook, YouTube und Google, Twitter und andere erreichen Milliarden von Menschen. Die Algorithmen, von denen diese Plattformen abhängen, unterstützen bewusst Inhalte, die die Nutzer bei der Stange halten – Geschichten, die unsere niederen Instinkte ansprechen, die Wut oder Angst auslösen. Aus diesem Grund empfahl YouTube Videos des Verschwörungstheoretikers Alex Johnson milliardenfach weiter. Fake News stechen echte Nachrichten aus: Studien zeigen, dass sich Lügen schneller verbreiten als die Wahrheit. Dabei überrascht es nicht, dass die größte Propaganda-Maschine in der Geschichte die älteste Verschwörungstheorie in der Geschichte verbreitet – die Lüge, Juden seien irgendwie gefährlich. Wie es eine Schlagzeile formulierte: „Malen Sie sich aus, wozu Goebbels Facebook benutzt hätte“.

Im Internet kann alles gleich legitim erscheinen. Breitbart wirkt nicht anders als die BBC. Die fiktiven Protokolle der Elders of Zion sehen genauso gültig aus wie ein ADL-Bericht. Und das Gegeifer eines Verrückten wirkt genauso glaubhaft wie die Erkenntnisse eines Nobelpreisgewinners. Insgesamt scheint es, als sei der Konsens über die notwendigen Grundlagen für Demokratie verlorengegangen.

In der Rolle des Möchte-Gern-Gangsters Ali G fragte ich einmal den Astronauten Buzz Aldrin: „Wie war’s denn auf der Sonne herumzuspazieren“? Der Witz funktionierte, weil das Publikum das Wissen um die Fakten teilte. Für jemanden, der die Mondlandung für Fake hält, ist der Witz nicht lustig.

Als Borat die Menschen in der Bar in Arizona dazu brachte, zuzustimmen, dass „Juden das Geld aller Menschen kontrollieren und nie zurückgeben“, funktionierte der Witz nur, weil das Publikum weiß, dass die Beschreibung von Juden als geizig eine Verschwörungstheorie ist, die aufs Mittelalter zurückgeht.

Aber wenn sich dank der sozialen Medien Verschwörungstheorien etablieren, erleichtert das nicht nur Hassgruppen, Anhänger zu rekrutieren. Es hilft auch, ausländischen Geheimdiensten, unsere Wahlen zu manipulieren und einem Land wie Myanmar Genozid an der ethnischen Gruppe der Rohingya zu verüben.

Aus einer Verschwörungstheorie kann Gewalt entstehen

„Es ist schockierend einfach, Verschwörungsdenke in Gewalt umzumünzen“

Dabei ist es schockierend einfach, Verschwörungsdenke in Gewalt umzumünzen. Bei der Vorbereitung meiner jüngsten Show von „Who is Amerika?“ kam mir als Interviewpartner ein gebildeter, normaler Mann unter, der seinen guten Job nicht verloren hatte. Dennoch verbreitete er über die sozialen Medien viele der Verschwörungstheorien, die Präsident Donald Trump mehr als 1.700 Mal über Twitter an seine 67 Millionen Follower geschickt hat. Einmal hatte der US-Präsident sogar getwittert, er überlege die Antifa – Anti-Faschisten, die gegen die Rechtsextremen demonstrieren – als Terrororganisation einzustufen.

Als israelischer Anti-Terror-Experte Colonel Erran Morad getarnt, erzählte ich meinem Interviewpartner, dass die Antifa vorhabe, bei einer Demonstration für Frauenrechte in San Francisco Hormone in die Windeln von Babys einzuschmuggeln, um sie „transgender“ zu machen. Und er hat es geglaubt.

Ich wies ihn an, an drei in Wahrheit unbescholtenen Leuten auf der Demonstration kleine Sprengkörper unterzujubeln. Ich erklärte ihm, wenn er einen Knopf drücke, würde er eine Explosion auslösen, die sie alle tötet. Es war natürlich kein echter Sprengstoff, aber er ging davon aus. Mein Ziel war herauszufinden, ob er es wirklich tun würde.

Die Antwort ist: Ja. Er drückte den Knopf und dachte, er hätte wirklich drei Menschen getötet. Voltaire hatte Recht, als er sagte: „Wer dich veranlassen kann, Absurditäten zu glauben, kann dich auch dazu bringen, Gräueltaten zu verüben.“ Und die sozialen Medien erlauben es Autoritären, Absurditäten an Milliarden Menschen weiterzuleiten.

Zur Verteidigung der Tech-Unternehmen sei gesagt, dass sie durchaus Maßnahmen ergriffen, um Hass und Verschwörung auf ihren Plattformen einzudämmen, aber die Schritte waren zumeist nur oberflächlich.

Die Demokratie steht auf dem Spiel

Ich ergreife heute hier das Wort, weil ich glaube, dass unsere pluralistischen Demokratien vor einem Abgrund stehen und dass die nächsten zwölf Monate und die Rolle der sozialen Medien entscheidend sein könnten. Die Briten gehen zur Wahlurne, während im Internet Verschwörungstheoretiker die verabscheuungswürdige Theorie verbreiten, dass weiße Christen gezielt durch muslimische Immigranten ersetzt werden. Unterdessen wählen die US-Amerikaner nächstes Jahr einen neuen Präsidenten, während Trolle und Bots die widerliche Lüge von einer „hispanischen Invasion“ am Leben erhalten. Und nach der jahrelangen Verbreitung von YouTube-Videos, die den Klimawandel eine Lüge nennen, sind die USA dabei, sich in einem Jahr offiziell aus dem Pariser Klimaabkommen zurückzuziehen.

Das Internet als Kanal für Fanatismus und niederträchtige Verschwörungstheorien, die Demokratie und unseren Planeten bedroht, ist wohl kaum, was die Erfinder des Internets im Sinn hatten.

Es ist an der Zeit, die sozialen Medien und die Art und Weise, wie sie Hass, Komplotte und Lügen verbreiten, zu überdenken. Aber erst vergangenen Monat warnte Facebook-Chef Mark Zuckerberg wenig überraschend in einer Rede davor, Gesetzen und Regulierungen für Tech-Unternehmen einzuführen. Einige seiner Argumente sind einfach absurd. Lassen Sie mich sie Punkt für Punkt durchgehen.

Zunächst versuchte Zuckerberg, das Ganze als ein Problem darzustellen, das „die Redefreiheit betrifft“. Das ist lächerlich. Es geht nicht darum, irgendjemandes Redefreiheit einzuschränken. Hier geht es darum, Leuten – darunter einigen der verwerflichsten Zeitgenossen weltweit – die größte Plattform in der Geschichte zu geben, über die sie ein Drittel des Planeten erreichen. Meinungsfreiheit ist nicht gleich dem Recht auf Reichweite. Leider wird es immer Rassisten, Frauenhasser, Antisemiten und Missbrauch an Kindern geben. Aber ich denke, wir können uns alle darauf einigen, dass wir Fanatikern und Pädophilen keine unbeschränkte Plattform geben sollten, um ihre Ansichten zu verbreiten und ihre Opfer ins Visier zu nehmen.

Zweitens behauptete Zuckerberg, dass neue Beschränkungen für das, was auf den sozialen Medien veröffentlicht werden darf, „die freie Meinungsäußerung einschränken“. Das ist völliger Unsinn. Der erste Zusatzartikel der Verfassung der USA schreibt vor, dass „der Kongress kein Gesetz beschließen darf“, das die Redefreiheit beschneidet. Allerdings gilt das nicht für private Unternehmen wie Facebook. Wir fordern von diesen Unternehmen ja nicht, die Grenzen der Redefreiheit in der ganzen Gesellschaft zu bestimmen. Wir wollen nur, dass sie dafür verantwortlich sind, was auf ihren Plattformen veröffentlicht wird.

Angenommen, ein Neonazi betritt im Stechschritt ein Restaurant, bedroht andere Gäste und verkündet, Juden töten zu wollen. Würden wir dann von dem Restaurantbesitzer erwarten, dass er ihm ein elegantes Acht-Gänge-Menü serviert? Natürlich nicht! Der Restaurantchef hat das gesetzliche Recht und die moralische Verpflichtung, den Nazi rauszuschmeißen. Dasselbe gilt für diese Internetfirmen.

Das ist ideologischer Imperalismus

„Zuckerberg redet Unsinn“

Punkt drei: Zuckerberg schien, die Regulierung von Tech-Unternehmen mit dem Vorgehen „der repressivsten Gesellschaften“ gleichsetzen zu wollen. Und das von einem der sechs Menschen, die entscheiden, welche Informationen so viele Menschen auf der Welt zu sehen bekommen. Neben Facebook-Chef Zuckerberg sind das Google-CEO Sundar Pichai, Alphabet Larry Page und Sergey Brin beim Google-Mutterkonzern sowie Brins frühere Schwägerin Susan Wojcicki bei YouTube und Twitter-Erfinder Jack Dorsey.

Die Silicon Six sind ausschließlich Milliardäre und alle sind US-Amerikaner oder Amerikanerinnen. Es ist ihnen wichtiger, ihre Aktienpreise in die Höhe zu treiben als die Demokratie zu schützen. Das ist ideologischer Imperalismus – sechs nicht gewählte Individuen in Silicon Valley drücken dem Rest der Welt ihre Vision auf, ohne einer Regierung rechenschaftspflichtig zu sein. Es ist, als stünden sie über dem Gesetz, als lebten wir im Römischen Reich und Mark Zuckerberg wäre Cäsar. Das würde zumindest seinen Haarschnitt erklären.

Da kommt mir eine Idee: Statt die Silicon Six über das Schicksal der Welt entscheiden zu lassen, wie wäre es, wenn die vom Volk gewählten politischen Vertreter aller Demokratien auf der Erde zumindest ein bisschen was zu sagen hätten?

Punkt vier: Zuckerberg sprach davon, eine „Vielfalt der Ansichten“ zu begrüßen, und im vergangenen Jahr hat er uns dafür ein Beispiel gegeben. Er sagte, er fände Beiträge, die den Holocaust leugnen, „zutiefst anstößig“, meine aber nicht, dass Facebook sie aus dem Netz nehmen sollte. Seine Begründung: „Ich glaube, dass es Dinge gibt, die die verschiedene Menschen falsch verstehen“. Auch heute sind noch Holocaust-Leugner auf Facebook. Unterdessen leitet einen Google durch einen einfachen Klick auf die widerwärtigsten Holocaust-Verleugnungsseiten. Unfassbarer Weise sagte mir einer der Google-Chefs einmal, diese Webauftritte zeigten nur „beide Seiten“ des Themas. Das ist doch Wahnsinn.

Um den verstorbenen amerikanischen Journalisten Edward R Murrow zu zitieren: „Nicht bei jedem Thema gibt es zwei gleichwertige und logische Seiten der Argumentation“. Es liegen Millionen Beweisstücke für den Holocaust vor – er ist eine historische Tatsache. Ihn zu verleugnen, ist keine zufällige Meinung. Wer den Holocaust verleugnet, zielt darauf hin, einen neuen zu ermutigen.

Wie soll man wissen, dass eine Lüge eine Lüge ist?

Und dennoch sagt Zuckerberg, dass „die Menschen entscheiden sollten, was glaubhaft ist, nicht Tech-Unternehmen.“ Aber wir leben in einer Zeit, in der zwei Drittel der Millennials angeben, dass sie noch nie von Ausschwitz gehört haben. Wie sollen sie wissen, was „glaubhaft“ ist? Wie sollen sie wissen, dass die Lüge eine Lüge ist?

Es gibt so etwas wie eine objektive Wahrheit. Fakten existieren. Und wenn diese Internet-Firmen wirklich etwas verändern wollen, dann sollten sie genügend Mitarbeiter anstellen, die die Inhalte tatsächlich überprüfen, eng mit Gruppen wie der ADL zusammenarbeiten, auf Fakten bestehen sowie Lügen und Verschwörungsthesen von der Plattform entfernen.

Punkt fünf: Zuckerberg wies auf die Schwierigkeiten hin, die die Sperrung von Content mit sich bringt. „Wo zieht man die Grenze?“, fragte er. Ja, diese Grenze zu ziehen, kann schwer sein. Aber eigentlich sagt er: ,Mehr dieser Lügen und Verschwörungen aus dem Netz zu verbannen, ist einfach zu teuer‘.

Dabei sprechen wir von den reichsten Unternehmen der Welt, mit den besten Ingenieuren der Welt. Sie könnten diese Probleme lösen, wenn sie wollten. Twitter könnte einen Algorithmus anwenden, der mehr „White Supremacy“-Hassreden entfernt. Aber laut Berichten hat das Unternehmen davon Abstand genommen, weil es dadurch einige sehr prominente Politiker von seiner Plattform verbannen müsste. Vielleicht wäre das gar keine so schlechte Sache! Die Wahrheit ist, dass die Tech-Unternehmen sich nicht grundsätzlich ändern werden, weil ihr gesamtes Geschäftsmodell darauf aufbaut, Nutzer zu engagen. Und nichts generiert eben mehr Engagement als Lügen, Angst und Empörung.

Es ist Zeit für Standards

Es ist an der Zeit, diese Unternehmen endlich als das zu bezeichnen, was sie wirklich sind – die größten Verbreiter von Inhalten aller Zeiten. Daher mein Vorschlag an Facebook und Co: Wenden Sie die gleichen grundlegenden Standards und Praktiken an, an die sich Zeitungen, Zeitschriften und TV-Nachrichtensendungen jeden Tag halten. Auch bei Film und Fernsehen gelten solche Standards und Praktiken: Es gibt Dinge, die wir nicht sagen dürfen. In England beispielsweise durfte Ali G nicht fluchen, wenn die Sendung vor 21 Uhr ausgestrahlt werden sollte.

Hier in den USA reguliert und bewertet die Motion Picture Association of America, was wir sehen. Es gab Fälle, in denen ich Szenen aus meinen Filmen schneiden oder kürzen musste, um Standards einzuhalten. Wenn es solche Regeln dafür gibt, was Kinos und Fernsehkanäle zeigen dürfen, dann sollten Unternehmen, die Inhalte an Milliarden Menschen veröffentlichen, sich ebenfalls an grundlegende Standards und Vorgaben halten müssen.

Nehmen wir die Frage der politischen Werbung. Glücklicherweise hat Twitter sie am Ende verboten und Google arbeitet ebenfalls an Veränderungen. Aber wenn man dafür bezahlt, veröffentlicht Facebook jede „politische“ Werbung, die man will, selbst wenn eine Lüge darin steht. Zudem wird das Unternehmen den Inserenten auch noch dabei unterstützen, diese Lügen per Mikro-Targeting gezielt an Nutzer zu schicken, um die Wirkung zu optimieren. Wenn es Facebook in den 1930ern schon gegeben hätte, hätte es nach dieser verdrehten Logik Hitler erlaubt, 30-Sekunden-Werbespots für seine „Lösung“ des „jüdischen Problems“ zu schalten.

Drosselt das Tempo

Eingebetteter Medieninhalt

Hier ein Vorschlag zur Verbesserung von Standards und Praktiken an Facebook: Fangt an, politische Werbung auf ihren Wahrheitsgehalt hin zu überprüfen, bevor sie veröffentlicht wird, und die Verbreitung von Lügen per Mikro-Targeting sofort zu stoppen. Wenn Werbung Lügen enthält: einfach Geld zurück und nicht veröffentlichen!

Eine weitere „gute Praxis“ möchte ich empfehlen: Drosselt das Tempo. Nicht jeder Beitrag muss sofort veröffentlicht werden. Oscar Wilde sagte einmal, „wir leben in einem Zeitalter, in dem unnötige Dinge das einzige sind, was wir für lebensnotwendig halten“. Aber ist es wirklich notwendig, jeden Gedanken oder jedes Video sofort online zu stellen, selbst wenn sie rassistisch oder kriminell oder mörderisch sind? Natürlich nicht!

Der Schütze, der in Neuseeland zahlreiche Muslime niedermetzelte, übertrug seine Gräueltaten per Live-Stream auf Facebook, wo es dann über das ganze Internet verbreitet und vermutlich millionenfach angeschaut wurde. Es war ein Snuff-Film, also einer, der echte Morde zeigt – der Öffentlichkeit präsentiert von den sozialen Medien. Wieso kann es nicht mehr Aufschub geben, so dass derartiger traumatisierender Schmutz abgefangen und gestoppt werden kann, noch bevor er veröffentlicht wird?

Wo bleiben die Konsequenzen?

Zum Abschluss sprach sich Zuckerberg dafür aus, dass die Social Media-Unternehmen „ihrer Verantwortung gerecht werden“ sollten. Aber er sagte nichts zu den Konsequenzen, wenn sie es nicht tun. Mittlerweil ist ziemlich klar, dass man nicht darauf bauen sollte, dass sie sich selbst regulieren. Wie damals angesichts der Industriellen Revolution ist es heute Zeit für Regulierung und Gesetzgebung, die die Gier dieser skrupellosen Hi-Tech-Kapitalisten Einhalt gebietet.

In jeder anderen Branche kann ein Unternehmen zur Verantwortung gezogen werden, wenn sein Produkt Mängel aufweist. Wenn Motoren explodieren oder Sicherheitsgurte nicht funktionieren, müssen Autofirmen zehntausende Autos zurückrufen. Das kostet unter Umständen Milliarden von Dollar. Es erscheint daher nur fair, Facebook, YouTube und Twitter aufzufordern: Euer Produkt ist mangelhaft, ihr seid verpflichtet, es in Ordnung zu bringen, egal, was es kostet, und egal, wie viele Mitarbeiter ihr für die Überprüfung der Inhalte einstellen müsst.

In jeder anderen Branche kann man für den Schaden, den man anrichtet, verklagt werden. Verleger können wegen Verleumdung, Individuen wegen übler Nachrede verklagt werden. Mir ist das schon oft passiert! Gerade werde ich von jemandem verklagt, dessen Namen ich lieber nicht nenne, weil er mich erneut verklagen könnte! Dagegen sind die Social Media-Unternehmen weitgehend von der Verantwortung für Inhalte, die ihre Nutzer veröffentlichen, befreit – egal wie unanständig die Inhalte sind. Diesen Schutz gewährt Absatz 230 des – ziehen Sie sich warm an – Communications Decency Act, dessen Hauptziel die Bekämpfung von Pornographie im Internet war. Absurd!

Freiheiten sind kein Selbstzweck

Zum Glück können Internet-Firmen mittlerweile für Pädophile verantwortlich gemacht werden, die ihre Seiten nutzen, um Kinder anzusprechen. Ich sage, wir sollten Tech-Firmen auch dafür verantwortlich machen, wenn Leute ihre Seiten nutzen, um den Massenmord von Kindern wegen ihrer Rasse oder Religion zu befürworten. Und vielleicht reichen Geldstrafen nicht. Vielleicht ist es Zeit, Mark Zuckerberg und den CEO der anderen Unternehmen zu sagen: Ihr habt bereits zugelassen, dass eine Supermacht sich in unsere Wahlen eingemischt hat, ihr habt bereits einen Genozid in Myanmar unterstützt. Macht das nochmal und ihr geht ins Gefängnis!

Letztlich läuft alles auf die Frage hinaus, was für eine Welt wir haben wollen. In seiner Rede bezeichnete es Zuckerberg als eines seiner Hauptziele, „eine möglichst weite Definition der freien Meinungsäußerung zu erhalten“. Doch unsere Freiheiten sind kein Selbstzweck, sondern auch Mittel für größere Ziele: In den USA bezeichnet man sie als Recht auf Leben, Freiheit und das Streben nach Glück. Doch heute sind diese Rechte durch Hass, Verschwörung und Lügen bedroht.

Erlauben Sie mir, dass ich mit einem Vorschlag schließe, die Zielsetzung unserer Gesellschaft neu zu definieren. Es darf nicht sein, dass Menschen wegen dem, was sie sind, woher sie kommen, wen sie lieben oder wie sie beten, verfolgt, belästigt oder ermordet werden. Das zu verhindern, muss das ultimative Ziel der Gesellschaft sein.

Wenn wir die Wahrheit der Lüge vorziehen, die Toleranz dem Vorurteil, Empathie der Gleichgültigkeit und Experten den Ignoranten – dann können wir vielleicht – nur vielleicht – die größte Propaganda-Maschine der Geschichte stoppen, die Demokratie retten und einen Raum für Redefreiheit und freie Meinungsäußerung erhalten. Und vor allem: Dann werden meine Witze weiter funktionieren.

Ich danke Ihnen allen sehr.

Jonathan Lethem zeigt, was er am besten kann: sich kurz fassen
Kein Wort ist zu viel

Jonathan Lethem war zuletzt schriftstellerisch nicht mit Glück gesegnet. Sein vergangenes Jahr erschienener Krimi Der wilde Detektiv konnte die Kritiker nicht wirklich überzeugen. Und sein vorletzter Roman wurde gar nicht erst ins Deutsche übersetzt. Dabei wird Lethem vor allem nach seinem erfolgreichen Roman über die amerikanische Linke, Garten der Dissidenten – einem thematisch zwar großartigen, literarisch aber zweitrangigen Buch –, noch immer gerne durchs hiesige Feuilleton gereicht.

Überhaupt scheint der 1964 geborene und in New York lebende Autor den großen literarischen Würfen seiner frühen Karriere (Festung der Einsamkeit, 2003, und Chronic City, 2009) immer noch hinterherzulaufen. Dass sein neuer Band nun ausgerechnet Alan, der Glückspilz heißt, wirkt da fast wie eine Beschwörung. Und die funktioniert dann auch, denn die in diesem Buch versammelten Erzählungen sind allesamt schlicht genial. In neun stilistisch, sprachlich und dramaturgisch radikal unterschiedlichen Geschichten kommt das ganze künstlerische Können Jonathan Lethems zum Einsatz.

Die an der politischen Alltagsrealität wie Occupy (Garten der Dissidenten) und dem Phänomen Trump (Der wilde Detektiv) entlanggeschrieben Bücher setzen nicht wirklich das literarische Potenzial dieses Schriftstellers frei, der ebenso die Psychosen des Großstadtamerikaners in Szene zu setzen weiß, wie den Kampf des künstlerischen Subjekts im Spätkapitalismus, und dafür Fantasy, Science-Fiction und popkulturellen Realismus in gewagten Dosen miteinander mischt.

Richtig krachen tut das in der Erzählung Veganer in der Schwebe über einen Familienvater, der gerade seine Psychopharmaka abgesetzt hat und mit seiner Frau und den vierjährigen Zwillingen in einem Wasserpark unterwegs ist, um sich Orcas anzusehen: „Sie wirkten wie von Albert Speer modifizierte Pandabären.“ Während er in Gedanken Zwiesprache mit seinem latent rassistischen Psychiater hält, läuft dieser Vater im Familientross durch einen Park, dessen Bauweise „etwas von einem Verdauungssystem hatte. Man wurde verschlungen, verdaut und wieder ausgeschissen.“ Im Stakkato entwirft Lethem auf 20 Seiten das psychologische und soziale Universum einer ganzen Familie. Kein Wort ist zu viel.

In Alan, der Glückspilz gibt es aber auch eine comicartige Erzählung mit dem Titel Die Schattenseiten. In dieser Story geht es um eine Gruppe von Menschen und anderen Wesen (unter anderem ein Monster und einer Art Kegelfigur), die nach einem Flugzeugabsturz auf einer einsamen Insel stranden. Das liest sich so, als hätten Robert Crumb und David Foster Wallace mit viel Punkmusik im Hintergrund ein Treatment für eine Neuverfilmung der Serie Lost geschrieben.

Ganz realistisch und normal dagegen fängt die Geschichte Verfahren unter freiem Himmel an. Ein Mann sitzt vor einem Café mit seinem Latte und stiert in den Tag hinein. Doch plötzlich tauchen zwei Bauarbeiter auf und fangen an, ein Loch auszuheben, in das sie einen Gefangenen hineinsetzen. Der Mann wird so zum Bewacher, eher aus Solidarität und Pflichtgefühl heraus.

Die in diesem Band versammelten Erzählungen sind im englischen Original schon 2015 erschienen und waren damals auch schon eine Zweitverwertung, weil sie zuvor zumeist in Literaturzeitschriften veröffentlicht worden waren. Das sollte dem Lesevergnügen aber keinen Abbruch tun. Denn dieses Buch macht scharf auf mehr solcher Pop-Fantastik. Insofern gilt es einfach weiter abzuwarten, was von dem Schriftsteller aus dem New Yorker Stadtteil Brooklyn als Nächstes kommt. Mal sehen, ob er ein Glückspilz bleibt und an die Qualität dieser Texte anknüpfen kann.

Linkes Manifest | Keine Kleinigkeit

 Cache   
Jeremy Corbyns Labour-Partei entwirft ein Bild von einer grüneren, gerechteren Gesellschaft. Eine Blaupause auch für Deutschland?
Keine Kleinigkeit

2007 wurde der berühmte britische linke Intellektuelle Stuart Hall gefragt, ob es ihn schmerze, dass die gerechtere Welt, für die er sein ganzes Leben eingetreten ist, in immer weitere Ferne rücke. Er antwortete: „Die Welt kommt mir heute fremder vor als jemals zuvor. Brauchen wir eine politische Partei, die der Meinung ist, wir sollten uns auf die Bedürfnisse der Weltwirtschaft einstellen? Bestimmt sollte es so eine Partei geben – aber keine zwei oder sogar zweieinhalb! Wenn alle mit so vielen gleichen Parametern arbeiten, kann dabei am Ende nur eine Art Swift‘ sche Debatte geführt werden: Sollen wir die Kinder gleich essen oder erst später?“

Als Jeremy Corbyn um den Vorsitz der Labour-Party kandidierte, bestand sein erklärtes Ziel darin, diese Debatte zu erweitern. Sein Sieg war nicht das Ergebnis einer Bewegung, sondern eines bestimmten Augenblicks. Er trat in einer Zeit auf die Bühne, in der sozialdemokratische Parteien in ganz Westeuropa in die Krise geraten waren, weil sie für eine durch stagnierende Löhne, Deregulierung, Neoliberalismus, mehr als zehn Jahre Krieg, fünf Jahren Krise, Austerität und eine sich stetig verschärfende Klimakrise geprägte Generation unzureichende Antworten bereithielten.

Die Frage war, ob die linke Mitte in der Lage war, eine Vision der Gesellschaft anzubieten, in der die Armen nicht für die Krise der Reichen bezahlen müssen, die Schwachen nicht für die Torheiten der Starken zum Sündenbock gemacht werden und am Ende nicht alles auf dem Rücken des Planeten abgeladen wird. Corbyn gewann nicht weil er alle – oder auch nur ein paar – Antworten hatte, sondern weil er zumindest bereit war, die Fragen zu stellen. Er stand für mehr als nur für ein Amt. Gewählt in dem Jahr, bevor Britannien für den Brexit stimmte und in den USA Donald Trump zum Präsidenten gewählt wurde, löste sein unerwarteter Aufstieg die Bedeutungskrise von Labour nicht aus, sondern war vielmehr eine Reaktion auf diese.

Eine Kurskorrektur ist dringend erforderlich

Das Labour-Wahlprogramm, das vergangenen Donnerstag vorgestellt wurde, macht deutlich, warum eine Kurskorrektur dringend erforderlich war. Es rechtfertigt nicht alles, was die Partei im Laufe der vergangenen vier Jahre getan oder nicht getan hat, aber es hebt die Debatte über die Wahl von der individuellen Ebene über Corbyn als Person auf die inhaltliche Ebene der Prioritäten, Werte und Interessen, für die seine Wahl zum Parteivorsitzenden steht.

Die meiste Zeit meines politischen Lebens hat Labour versucht, mich mit der Drohung zur Wahl zu treiben, dass alles viel schlimmer werden wird, sollte die Partei nicht gewählt werden. Es ist sehr wohltuend, dass sie mich heute mit der Vorstellung umwirbt, dass die Dinge im Falle ihres Sieges sehr viel besser werden könnten. Die Partei beabsichtigt, Ölunternehmen zu besteuern, um die Wirtschaft ökologischer zu gestalten, die Technologieriesen zu besteuern, um den Breitbandausbau zu finanzieren, die Bahn zu verstaatlichen, Sozialwohnungen zu bauen und Erwachsenen ein kostenloses sechsjähriges Studium bzw. eine entsprechende Weiterbildung zu garantieren. All dies sind Veränderungen, die ich mir wünschen würde und für die ich bereit wäre, meinen Anteil zu bezahlen. Ihnen liegen Werte zugrunde, bei denen eher die Menschen anstatt der Profite im Mittelpunkt stehen.

Eingebetteter Medieninhalt

Ein solches Wahlprogramm erweitert nicht nur das Verständnis von dem, was wünschenswert, sondern dem, was möglich wäre. Es zwingt andere Parteien und KommentatorInnen dazu, zu erklären, warum sie diese Dinge nicht wollen oder nicht bereit sind, ihnen Priorität einzuräumen. In ihrer Reaktion werden sie zwischen der Behauptung, Labour mache Versprechungen, die die Partei nicht halten könne, der Kritik, es gefalle ihnen nicht, wie Labour für diese Versprechen bezahlen wolle, und dem Beharren darauf schwanken, die Versprechen seien überhaupt nicht erstrebenswert, unhaltbar oder schlicht nicht umsetzbar. Erwartbarerweise wird genau die Partei, die gerade über zwei Milliarden Pfund für die Vorbereitungen auf einen No-Deal-Brexit und eine Milliarde für die Unterstützung der Democratic Unionist Party verschwendet hat, laut „Verschwendung!“ brüllen.

Für wen ist die Wirtschaft eigentlich da?

Diejenigen, die behaupten, ein solches Programm würde die Wirtschaft ruinieren, sollten einmal darüber nachdenken, für wen diese Wirtschaft denn eigentlich da ist. Wenn das fünftreichste Land der Welt nicht in der Lage ist, seine Kinder zu ernähren, seinen „Working Poor“ Wohnungen bereitzustellen und seine Kranken zu behandeln, dann ist seine Wirtschaft bereits ruiniert. Diejenigen, die sich über die zur Wahl stehenden Kandidaten beschwert haben, haben nun die Gelegenheit, über die Optionen nachzudenken, die die Wahlprogramme bieten – d.h. nicht einfach nur darüber, wer gewinnen könnte, sondern was sich dadurch ändern könnte.

2017 gab das Wahlprogramm den WahlkämpferInnen gute Argumente an die Hand, um die Menschen umzustimmen, wenn sie ihnen erklärten, was dieser Corbyn denn eigentlich so vorhatte. Häufig stellte sich heraus, dass bei den Wählerinnen und Wählern die Sympathien für Corbyns Pläne gegenüber den Vorbehalten gegenüber seiner Person überwogen. Zum ersten Mal seit seiner Wahl zum Parteivorsitzenden gingen Labour-Anhänger in die Offensive und warben nicht unbedingt für Corbyn, sondern für das Programm, das ihn möglich machte.

Aber auch wenn diese Programme einen bedeutenden Einfluss auf die Wahlen haben, handelt es sich bei ihnen im Wesentlichen doch um politische Dokumente. Wenn hier eine ernsthafte Kritik an Labour angebracht ist, dann die, dass zwischen dem letzten und dem aktuellen Wahlprogramm zu wenig Substanzielles geschehen ist, was daran erinnert hätte, wofür die Partei da ist und warum wir uns darum kümmern sollten, was sie tut. Mit den Worten von Lynton Crosby, dem australischen Berater, der die Wahlstrategie der Konservativen gestaltet: „Man kann das Schwein nicht erst am Markttag mästen.“ Der Kampf gegen Armut und Ungleichheit, Militarismus und Bigotterie muss dauerhaft und beständig geführt werden, und darf nicht als Eintagsfliege in Gestalt eines Wahlprogramms daherkommen.

Es gibt Menschen, die das interessiert, auch wenn sie sich politisch nicht unbedingt zu Wort melden. Am Tag, an dem das Wahlprogramm von 2017 vorgestellt wurde, saß ich in einer Fokusgruppe unentschlossener WählerInnen aus Harrow, Nord-London. Sarah war an diesem Tag von Edinburgh nach London gefahren, um ihre Mutter zu besuchen und hatte im Auto Radio gehört. Es erschien ihr vernünftig, diejenigen stärker zu besteuern, die mehr als 80.000 Pfund pro Jahr verdienen. „Die Dinge haben sich zu weit in die falsche Richtung entwickelt“, sagte sie und gab damit den Ton für die Gruppe vor. Es sei an der Zeit, „die Dinge gerechter zu gestalten“. Debbie stimmte ihr zu: „Wir müssen den Menschen zeigen, dass wir uns um sie sorgen.“

Eine Zeit, in der es vielen leichter fällt, sich das Ende der Welt vorzustellen als das Ende des Kapitalismus

Während die Presse den Rückfall in sozialistische Orthodoxie und marxistische Dogmen beklagte – und dies mit an Sicherheit grenzender Wahrscheinlichkeit auch dieses Mal wieder tun wird – war die Rezeption an unserem Tisch weitaus gemäßigter und wohlwollender. Debbie und Sarah sprachen nicht nur über die bevorstehenden Wahlen, sondern über die Verfallserscheinungen, die sich in den vorangegangenen zehn Jahren angesammelt hatten – und wie diese wieder rückgängig gemacht werden könnten. Sie fanden, dass wir als Land zu mehr in der Lage sind. Eines der Opfer des chronischen Desinteresses der Medien an dem, was Corbyn für Menschen sowohl innerhalb als auch außerhalb der Labour-Partei attraktiv macht, war die Darstellung seiner Unterstützerbasis als fanatisch und starrköpfig, obwohl sie schon immer weitaus sympathischer und weniger ideologisch war.

Heute ist nicht 2017 und wir wissen nicht, welchen Effekt das aktuelle Wahlprogramm haben wird. Wir sollten nicht davon ausgehen, dass es zu den gleichen Reaktionen kommt. Die Tories haben heute einen anderen Vorsitzenden, der Brexit stellt sich anders dar, die öffentliche Wahrnehmung Corbyns hat sich verändert, traditionelle Bindungen und Loyalitäten werden schwächer. Alles Mögliche könnte geschehen.

Doch mit diesem Programm ist eine Alternative in der Welt. Wenn man in einer Zeit lebt, in der es vielen leichter fällt, sich das Ende der Welt vorzustellen als das Ende des Kapitalismus, wie wir ihn kennen, ist das keine Kleinigkeit.

@Security Scout, Herrhausen und Rohwedder wurden gekllt, weil sie ein gemeinsames Konzept hatten, die DDR nach der "Wiedervereinigung" wieder aufzubauen. Sie wußten ja nicht, daß die Wiedervereinigung nur eine Okupation der BRD durch die DDR werden sollte. Herrhausen und Rohwedder waren eine große Gefahr für die internationalen Zionisten. Deshalb gab Kohl den Auftrag, diese beiden Männer umzubringen. Mittlerweile ist ja bekannt, wie alles gelaufen ist. Vor Jahren las ich von einem "Gerücht", daß man Kohl ein Angebot machte, daß er 10.000.000 oder doch 100.000.000 als Spende bekommen sollte, wenn er Merkel zum Kanzler aufbaut. Und genauso ist es gekommen. Zuerst hat er die DDR-Eigentümer enteignet (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fe_uqTr9bn4&t=9s) und dann hat Birgit Breuel den Rest besorgt. Und Mwerkel führte den Plan weiter und sie ist weiterhin dabei. Um ca. 2010 habe ich in meinem Bekanntenkreis gesagt: Merkel hat die Aufgabe, das deutsche Volk auszurotten. Mittlerweile weiß jeder was passiert ist, wird sich aber nicht so artikulieren, wie ich es tue. Mittlerweile sind einige Bücher von Daniel Prinz erschienen, die dazu einige Hintergründe bringen. Besonders interessant ist das Buch: "Wenn das die Menschheit wüßte". Darin wird sehr schön geschildert, wie es überhaupt zu Angela Merkel kam. Weiterhin werden die Gründe genannt, wieso seit vielen, vielen Jahren ein Krieg tobt: das Judentum gegen die Germanen (sprich Deutsche). Das ganze Szenario, was jetzt in Mittel-Europa tobt kann man eigentlich erst jetzt begreifen, da man solche Fakten kennt. Glücklicherweise gibt es jetzt zwei Leute auf der Welt, die diesen Kabalenkrieg beenden werden, Trump und Putin. Man kann nur hoffen, daß wirklich demnächst die ganzen Schurken der letzten US-Regierungsperioden und in Europa (besonders BRD) nach Guatanamo kommen und dort abgeurteilt werden.

Michael Bloomberg launches Democratic presidential bid

 Cache   

By STEVE PEOPLES AP National Political Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, one of the world's richest men, has formally launched a Democratic bid for president.

Ending weeks of speculation, the 77-year-old former Republican announced his candidacy Sunday in a written statement posted on a campaign website describing himself as uniquely positioned to defeat President Donald Trump. He will quickly follow with a massive advertising campaign blanketing airways in key primary states across the U.S.

"I'm running for president to defeat Donald Trump and rebuild America," Bloomberg wrote.

"We cannot afford four more years of President Trump's reckless and unethical actions," he continued. "He represents an existential threat to our country and our values. If he wins another term in office, we may never recover from the damage."

Bloomberg's entrance comes just 10 weeks before primary voting begins, an unorthodox move that reflects anxiety within the Democratic Party about the strength of its current candidates.

Gerard’s cumulative pay at API tops all trade group CEOs

 Cache   

New tax documents show Jack Gerard took home $10.3 million in 2018, bringing total pay to $61 million over nearly 10 years

GerardGerard

Nov. 22, 2019
By Walt Williams

Jack Gerard, former CEO of the American Petroleum Institute, earned $10.3 million during his final year leading the influential trade group, according to financial disclosures filed in November.

Gerard retired from the $234 million-revenue API in 2018, ending a nearly 10-year run as head of one of the most powerful business advocacy groups in Washington, D.C. He had previously led the American Chemistry Council and the National Mining Association.

Gerard’s final months at API marked the second time his annual salary crossed into eight-figure territory. Only two other trade group CEOs have earned $10 million or more in a single year—Billy Tauzin in 2010 ($11.5 million), the year he left Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, and possibly Jack Valenti in 2004, the last year of his 38-year tenure at the Motion Picture Association. (IRS-required reporting on take-home pay before 2008 was less explicit, so it's unclear if Valenti received all $11 million in that year.)

Other 501(c)(6) CEOs have earned more in a single year, but those organizations were sports-related groups such as the National Football League (which dropped its tax-exempt status in 2015) and PGA Tour.

The biggest chunk of Gerard’s 2018 take-home pay—$7.6 million—came from a supplemental executive retirement plan payout, most likely a 457(f) plan, that had accumulated since the former CEO’s last big payout in 2013, when he took home pay of $13.3 million.

Gerard also has earned more over a 10-year timespan than any other trade group CEO. From November 2008 through July 2018, he earned $61 million. Even Tom Donohue, longtime CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, can’t match that record. Donohue took home $59.8 million over 11 full years, including his 2018 compensation of $6.9 million.

Tax-exempt groups are still filing their latest reports to the IRS, but it’s highly unlikely any other trade group CEO will come near Gerard’s 10-year earnings.
 
Well-oiled lobbying machine

Gerard began his political career in 1981 as a staffer for former Rep. George Hansen and later former Sen. James McClure, both Republicans from his home state of Idaho. He partnered with McClure in 1990 to launch a government relations consulting firm.

Gerard joined API at the very end of President George W. Bush’s administration. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney were both oil men, and their approach to regulatory policy reflected that fact. However, the election of President Barack Obama in 2008 resulted in an administration more open to the concerns of environmentalists and other critics of the oil industry.

API would spend much of the Obama administration fighting efforts to tighten regulations against greenhouse gases, restrict oil and gas drilling on federal lands, and block construction of energy infrastructure projects such as the Keystone XL pipeline. The group is also a major critic of the Renewable Fuel Standard, which requires ethanol to be blended with motor fuels.

One advantage API has long had in its advocacy efforts is the oil industry’s deep pockets. Under Gerard’s watch the group spent more than $400 million on public relations efforts, according to tax returns reviewed by the Center for Public Integrity. Most of the money went to PR giant Edelman, although the firm cut ties with API in 2015, reportedly because it no longer wanted to be associated with organizations that funded climate change denial. (API said at the time it was not a climate change denier.)

Still, the oil industry’s fortunes rise and wane with oil prices, and in 2015 API absorbed America's Natural Gas Alliance, a trade group that shared many members with API.

Since then the industry’s advocacy outlook has improved. President Donald Trump has rolled back several environmental regulations opposed by API and granted oil refineries a large number of exemptions to the Renewable Fuel Standard.

Gerard’s successor at  API is Mike Sommers, who was chief of staff to former House Speaker John Boehner before becoming CEO of the American Investment Council.  Gerard has since become a General Authority Seventy of  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, one of the highest positions within the church.

API’S $61 MILLION MAN

Meanwhile, back in the real World, China's Ministry of Commerce says "external rumors" about the trade talks are not accurate and that the "so called" phase-one agreement may not be completed until next year as Beijing presses for greater reductions in tariffs and the Trump Administration pushes back with its own demands.  Trump has, so far, been sticking to his threat that tariffs will INCREASE on Dec 15th – it's very hard to imagine any deal getting done if that happens, as it would then look like China is breaking under Trump's tariff pressure and China would rather walk away than look weak.  

At least Alibaba (BABA) is having a good day, raising $11.2Bn in Hong Kong despite stores being shuttered and the streets smokey with tear gas.  BABA stock popped 6.5% this morning as they raised money on that exchange though that was already anticipated in a weeklong run on their Nasdaq proxy (BABA) – so don't expect the same over here as it came in right around their original HK target of $24, which they then lowered, so they could beat it.

Alibaba’s share sale was the largest offering of any kind in Hong Kong since 2010. The money raised by Alibaba will be added to the company’s cash pile, which is now $43 Billion – enough to buy M, JWN, KSS, BBY, BBBY, LB AND HBI – if they ever want to escape Hong Kong's Democracy and come to America…

Progress was made on the Trade War – again – as China agreed to raise the penaties they never enforce on IP Theft over the weekend but keep in mind our expectations have been lowered so much that the market is now celbrating SOME progress on a PARTIAL trade deal – 2 years after the fact!  When did we all become such idiots?  Because of the trade progress, Trump has left the Hong Kong protesters out on a limb by refusing (so far) to sign Congresses bill sanctioning China for their brutal crackdown.

Fortunately, Hong Kong citizens weren't waiting for Trump and Putin's approval and they went to the polls this weekend and overhwelmingly voted for pro-Democracy (the thing Trump and Putin are against) candidates who won 90% of the seats up for grabs with a record 71.2% turnout at the polls despite China's voter intimidation tactics.  This is very worrying for Trump and the GOP, who are counting on their own voter intimidation tactics to keep potential Democratic supporters away next November.  

Hong Kong's embattled Government took a page out of Team Trump's playbook and attempted to spin reality with this statement:

"There are various analyses and interpretations in the community in relation to the results, and quite a few are of the view that the results reflect people's dissatisfaction with the current situation and the deep-seated problems in society, (The government) will listen to the opinions of members of the public humbly and seriously reflect."

Newsmen are virtually never allowed to interview him on the topic of Chappaquiddick except as an auxiliary line of questioning and in some featherbed situation like "Face the Nation vibrators," the television show, when a panelist has time only to lob a few soft generalized questions at him about whether Chappaquiddick shows a defect his character, and he can easily turn the questions aside with equally generalized answers about how "it's all in the record," and "the public will have to decide."

"And it's something I wouldn't recommend his doing," says one of his top aides, "unless he wants to have it interpreted that he is running for President think there are better ways to make the announcement.".

Okay back onto what that girl being officially banned:Though money will never help her overcome the scars she suffered, it can help her go to a private school (because no doubt everyone knows who she is in her town) where she can start over once again and won't be alienated.

But The Man from Beijing, though not among Mankell's very best, is a winner. It grabs like super glue. Mankell is a detective of society who keenly uncovers evidence of Sweden's social ills that will resonate with Americans. This delightful gem of an album focuses on the music of emblematically Dominican bachata via the Haitian diaspora found on that side of the island. Sung in Creole and Spanish, Bachata Haiti unites guitar maestro Joan Soriano with a masterful roster of Haitian Dominican artists including Franklin Medina, "El Zorro Negro." A lovely dialogue is created between the sensual lolls of bachata's guitar twangs (this is, after all, once stigmatized music, at one time relegated to bordellos) and the tight, lilting and soulful harmonies of Haitian creole kompa music. "Ti Pouchon" reveals the endless riches of the African roots that nurtured American blues, Dominican bachata and Haitian kompa.

dildos Another thing to think about is that even when you are feeling relaxed and aroused, intercourse or any other insertive sex is likely a fairly new sensation (even if you've used tampons in the past, they're generally much smaller in diameter than anything else you'd be inserting other than a small finger), and it's something that can take some time to get used to. One thing that might be helpful is if you get some basic latex gloves from a drugstore (or non latex ones if either of you has an allergy) and try insertion with fingers either yours or your partner's and a lot of lube, to get used to the sensation. Gloved fingers are a lot smoother and less likely to have any sort of sharp fingernail issues than ungloved ones, so I think that'll help, and some people find that using their hands, or having their partners use their own vibrators, can be easier because it's easy to feel how your body's responding. dildos

wholesale vibrators For teen and young adult women today, the era of fierce, second wave revolts against looksism aren't a distant memory for them. They've no memory, no feeling, and often no knowledge, of old school feminist reclamation of the body and the watershed feminist health care movement which first shred giant holes in male and corporate dominated approaches to women's bodies and reproductive health. Rather, this is a generation that has often been sent clear and often unchallenged messages, much like their grandmothers were, from their earliest moments of girlhood that every aspect of the female body is unacceptable body hair, wrinkles, the "wrong" size of labia minora or breasts vibrators, the cushy softness of even the thinnest belly. wholesale vibrators

It certainly is a lofty and unrealistic goal to find a partner who has all the same sexual fantasies/desires as you, but if you can find someone who is willing to try new things for you as you do for them while still maintaining respect, trust, and communication than that is a very good prospect for a fulfilling sexual relationship Adult Toys.

Taken to Brink by Trump, Gulf States Are Backpedaling on Iran

 Cache   

Taken to Brink by Trump, Gulf States Are Backpedaling on Iran(Bloomberg) -- An expanded soccer tournament, a direct flight, clandestine meetings and a pledge to release prisoners of war; diplomacy is breaking out as Gulf Arab nations back away from a Donald Trump-inspired confrontation with Iran. And the signs are everywhere.Last week, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain played their first games of the 2019 Arabian Gulf Cup in Qatar after a last-minute decision to take part -- an apparent breakthrough in a 30-month feud that saw them halt trade and flights over Qatar’s links with Iran and support for Islamist groups.Meanwhile, the Saudi-led coalition that’s fought Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen since 2015 began releasing jailed Houthis, as efforts to end the conflict gather momentum. Oman is quietly hosting high-level meetings, according to people familiar with the matter, and even Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has hinted at direct channels with the U.A.E.Spooked by the prospect of a catastrophic war with Iran and its proxy militias across the region, Gulf monarchies are in the midst of a strategic rethink. The U.A.E., whose economic model relies in large part on its international links, quickly realized it had most to lose from a military escalation. It had removed most of its troops from Yemen by the end of a turbulent summer that saw oil tankers targeted and a U.S. drone downed in the Gulf without significant American response.While the humanitarian catastrophe unleashed by the Yemen war trained an unwelcome spotlight on Saudi Arabia, it took a brazen strike on Saudi oil installations -- which knocked out half the country’s crude production -- to ram home the risks and prove that Trump was not about to ride to his allies’ rescue.“The attacks shattered any illusion of this magical U.S. security umbrella,” said David Roberts, an assistant professor at King’s College London who studies the Gulf. “It burst the bubble and showed that Iran had the willingness to both do something astonishing like the attack on Aramco facilities and the capability to carry it out.”Iran denies U.S. and Saudi assertions it carried out the Sept. 14 strikes, pointing to Houthi claims of responsibility. But people familiar with investigations into the attacks say they were almost certainly launched from southwestern Iran -- an explosive escalation in Tehran’s pushback against an economic offensive unleashed by Trump and enthusiastically backed by the Saudis.The Trump administration withdrew last year from the 2015 deal meant to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear bomb, and reimposed sanctions that have crippled its oil exports. But the “maximum pressure” policy is designed to coax Tehran into more concessions not to drag the U.S. into a new Middle East war just as it draws down troops in Syria.Rolling back Shiite Muslim Iran’s power remains a priority for the Sunni Gulf Arab leadership. There’s an increasing recognition, however, that no one stands to gain from a military escalation in the world’s top oil-exporting region.Saudi Arabia’s Center for International Communication didn’t respond to an email seeking comment. The U.A.E. declined to comment. But in a Nov. 10 speech, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said he saw “a path to a deal with Iran that all parties might soon” be ready to embark on if Tehran demonstrated commitment.War to ‘Cold Peace’In search of a breakthrough, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, a former cricketer elected with the backing of a powerful army that provides extensive support for the Saudi military, shuttled between Tehran and Riyadh in October. He met Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Rouhani, as well as Saudi Arabia’s King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, describing talks as “encouraging.”Khan said he traveled at the request of Trump and Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel Al-Jubeir said the diplomacy wasn’t prompted by the kingdom. But deepening unease in the Gulf catalyzed the effort.Turning these overtures into lasting peace between countries that have grown further apart since the 1979 Iranian revolution remains far off.The Gulf states resent Iran’s deep reach into Arab nations. While ongoing protests in Iraq and Lebanon suggest Iran has reached the limit of its regional influence, they are unlikely to reverse political and military advances decades in the making.“Cold peace is possible but we are certainly far from a grand bargain,” said Afshin Molavi, senior fellow at the Foreign Policy Institute at Johns Hopkins. “For that, both Riyadh and Abu Dhabi would have to accept a role for Iran in Arab countries such as Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.”As they explore ways forward, Gulf states are moving at different speeds.The U.A.E. broke with the U.S. and Saudi Arabia by not naming Iran as the culprit behind attacks in May and June on oil tankers as they sailed toward the Strait of Hormuz, the world’s foremost oil shipping chokepoint.It sent coast guard officials to Iran for the first time in six years and Rouhani hinted at other meetings with senior U.A.E. officials. “We’re moving toward improved relations,” he said Oct. 14. Saudi Arabia is catching up.Washington built a multilateral naval operation to protect shipping in the Gulf after the attacks and sent more troops to Saudi Arabia. Both actions resulted in a “down tick” in Iranian actions,” U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Nov. 13. “The Iranians should not mistake our restraint for weakness.”Where the U.S. holds back, however, others are crowding in. Besides his role in saving Bashar al-Assad’s regime, Russian President Vladimir Putin has forged a partnership with Iran, created an oil alliance with Saudi Arabia and built ties with Egypt’s Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, who was warned by the U.S. last month against plans to purchase Russian jets.Putin traveled to Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E. in October after visits by the Saudi king and the U.A.E.’s de-facto leader Mohammad bin Zayed to Moscow. The two Gulf countries and Russia have signed deals valued at billions of dollars.For Iran’s Rouhani, the case for regional engagement is obvious.“Don’t you know that Iran is going to stay here and we will remain neighbors throughout history?” he has said, referring to Iran’s Arab neighbors. “Trump will only be around for a few years and will go back to whatever it was he was doing.”\--With assistance from Golnar Motevalli and Glen Carey.To contact the reporter on this story: Zainab Fattah in Dubai at zfattah@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Lin Noueihed at lnoueihed@bloomberg.net, Mark WilliamsFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.



          

Hong Kong Unrest Rages on as Police Clash With Protesters

Hong Kong Unrest Rages on as Police Clash With Protesters(Bloomberg) -- Clouds of tear gas returned to Hong Kong over the weekend as police and protesters clashed, signaling pro-democracy rallies are set to drag on after demonstrators got a boost from an election win and support from the U.S. Congress.Tensions rose in the former British colony -- a special administrative region of China since 1997 -- as thousands of black-clad protesters marched in the busy tourist district of Tsim Sha Tsui on Sunday afternoon. Unrest had been brewing since late Saturday, when a group blocked roads and set fire to a subway station entrance.The violence took a pause with the elections a week earlier, as Hong Kong residents handed an overwhelming victory to pro-democracy candidates in a vote for local district councils on Nov. 24. While the officials they elected represent what’s considered as the lowest rung of the government, the win was a stunning repudiation of the city’s Beijing-backed government. Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam didn’t make any new concessions to protesters after the poll, a move that could have fueled the anger seen over the weekend.At the Tsim Sha Tsui event, police said smoke grenades were hurled by what it labeled “rioters” to cause fear and panic among demonstrators, prompting law enforcement action that included tear gas to disperse the crowd. Bricks were thrown at police officers in the area, as well as in nearby Whampoa, where shops were also vandalized. One passerby was attacked, police said.Earlier in the day, people carrying U.S. flags and banners marched to the U.S. consulate in a peaceful rally to express gratitude after President Donald Trump signed legislation last week in support of the demonstrators. While the crowds have dispersed Sunday night, scores of police officers in riot gear were still seen lining the streets as of 2 a.m. on Monday.MTR Corp., the city’s subway operator, said it expects rail and bus services to resume normally on Monday, with the possibility that some stations and rail sections may close early, especially on weekends. The University station on the East Rail line will remain shut for repairs, and entrances and exits to some stops that had excessive damage from the protests will also not be accessible.Subway stations and even tracks were vandalized during the protests in the past few months, with MTR’s crews rushing through repairs. The stock -- once one of Hong Kong’s safest stock bets -- has lost more than a fifth of its value since its peak this year in July, making it the second-worst performer on Hong Kong’s benchmark Hang Seng Index. The stock is poised to recover quickly when the city’s situation eventually settles, according to Goldman Sachs Group Inc. analysts, who’ve upgraded MTR to buy from neutral.Police ConductMeanwhile, China said it “strongly” opposed an opinion piece by United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet in the South China Morning Post on Saturday, accusing her of meddling in the country’s affairs and emboldening Hong Kong protesters to commit violence.Bachelet urged the city’s government to conduct a “proper independent and impartial judge-led investigation” into reports of excessive use of force by police. She also called on Lam’s administration to “prioritize a long-overdue process” of meaningful and inclusive dialogue with the people of Hong Kong.Hong Kong’s newly appointed police chief, Chris Tang, said an independent probe into the use of force by police would be unjust, the South China Morning Post reported Sunday, citing comments he made in a radio program.China has also arrested two overseas nationals for their alleged involvement in Hong Kong’s protest movement, state newspaper Southern Daily reported, citing information from the national security agency. Taiwanese Lee Meng-chu and Lee Henley Hu Xiang of Belize were arrested by the national security authorities in the southern Guangdong province, the local paper said in two reports published Saturday.(Updates with clashes in fourth paragraph, subway plans for Monday in sixth.)To contact the reporter on this story: Manuel Baigorri in Hong Kong at mbaigorri@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Brendan Scott at bscott66@bloomberg.net, Linus Chua, Tony CzuczkaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Afghanistan, il "Mullah Donald" e il patto con i Talebani. Storia di un fallimento

 Cache   

Fa uno spot elettorale della serie “ragazzi, tranquilli, presto vi riporterò a casa”, dove quel “presto” sta per prima delle elezioni presidenziali del novembre 20020. E poi sceglie il “male minore”. E poco importa che quel “male” ha rappresentato la ragione dichiarata di una guerra lunga diciotto anni. “Mullah Donald” ha sentenziato che il nuovo Afghanistan, plurale, democratico, de-talebanizzato, è una illusione che non vale più la pena coltivare.

I negoziati con i Talebani sono ripresi dopo l’interruzione nello scorso settembre, ha annunciato Donald Trump, ieri in Afghanistan per una visita a sorpresa nella base militare di Bagram nel Giorno del Ringraziamento. I” talebani vogliono un accordo, e noi li incontreremo e diremo che deve esserci un cessate il fuoco. Loro non lo volevano ma ora sì. Abbiamo compiuto dei grandi progressi”, ha dichiarato Trump al termine di un colloquio con l’omologo afghano Ashraf Ghani.Anche i Talebani si sono detti “pronti a riprendere i colloqui” di pace con gli Stati Uniti e confermano quanto affermato ieri dal presidente statunitense, Alcuni leader del gruppo radicale hanno fatto sapere che stanno avendo incontri con funzionari Usa di alto livello, a Doha.  Ma ciò che più conta, per il tycoon, è mantenere fede su uno dei punti del suo programma elettorale:  quello di riportare a casa i soldati americani dalle guerre infinite, prima tra tutte quella in Afghanistan. Il presidente più volte ha ribadito la sua posizione, così come ha fatto anche in occasione di quest’ultima visita, sostenendo che i soldati americani, “i migliori che ci sono” non possono essere “la polizia del mondo”.   A Ghani , Trump  ha confermato l’intenzione di ridurre al più presto il numero di militari americani, dispiegati nella coalizione internazionale arrivata a combattere i talebani dopo l′11 settembre 2001, a 8.600 unità dagli attuali 13mila. Come primo step. Per arrivare, in piena campagna presidenziale, all’azzeramento della presenza militare Usa in Afghanistan. Obiettivo praticabile, nell’ottica del “Mullah Donald”, visto che nemico di ieri può diventare l’alleato di oggi Paradosso afghano: diciotto anni fa, l’America colpita dall’11 Settembre, muove guerra in Afghanistan ad al Qaeda e al regime che ospitava i campi di addestramento di Osama bin Laden: quello dei Talebani. Migliaia di morti dopo (tra cui 54 militari italiani), l’inquilino della Casa Bianca apre ai Talebani in nome di un nemico comune: l’Isis. Diciotto anni di guerra, ovvero oltre 145 mila morti, tra cui almeno 28 mila civili. A questi si aggiungono oltre 3.500 soldati NATO (di cui 53 italiani, più 650 feriti), almeno 1.700 contractor di varie nazionalità e oltre 300 cooperanti stranieri’. Una guerra costata 900 miliardi di dollari, 7,5 per l’Italia. Nel 2018 secondo l’Onu sono stati uccisi 3800 civili, tra cui mille bambini. Il più alto numero di vittime tra la popolazione in un anno. Quest’anno finora hanno perso la vita 19 militari americani.

I Talebani controllano gran parte delle regionirurali dell’Afghanistan. E rappresentano ancora una minaccia alla pace e alla stabilità del paese, forti ancora di un numero di miliziani stimati tra le 40 e le 60mila persone. Non riconoscono il governo di Ghani, che ritengono essere un “fantoccio” degli occidentali. E vogliono rientrare nella partita per la spartizione del potere. E Trump lo ha accettato. In nome di un nemico comune: lo Stato islamico. Perché a potere e territori  ai Talebani sono i foreign fighters dell’Isis. L’Afghanistan non è l’Iraq o la Siria, dove gli affiliati all’Isis combattono i curdi, i cristiani e gli sciiti. Qui il potere è conteso ad altri sunniti, i Talebani, e più che per conquistare nuovi territori al “califfato”, si combatte per assicurarsi il controllo delle rotte del commercio dei narcotici. La “fabbrica” talebana di oppiacei mantiene salda la prima posizione mondiale, infatti l’eroina afghana raggiunge quasi tutto il globo. 

 Nel gennaio 2017, l’Isis ha annunciato la nascita di una nuova fazione locale in Afghanistan, alla quale hanno velocemente aderito molti fuoriusciti dai talebani: gli afghani di Nangarhar non lo sapevano, ma si trattava proprio dei pakistani rifugiati nelle loro case. Dopo un anno di alleanza con i talebani afghani, in estate, l’Isis è venuto allo scoperto predicando in moschea un islam rigidamente wahabita (lo stesso professato in Arabia Saudita).  A luglio sono cominciati i primi scontri a fuoco tra i talebani afghani e i pakistani, passati all’Isis.   Dopo un mese circa di combattimenti, l’Isis si è impossessato della zona, nonostante gli americani bombardassero sia loro che i talebani. Passando villaggio per villaggio e casa per casa, i jihadisti hanno rubato i mezzi di sostentamento ai residenti, distruggendo scuole e madrasse talebane, imponendo una nuova legge. Le abitazioni dei talebani sono state bruciate e chi veniva sospettato di essere loro alleato è stato rapito e seviziato, Una recente inchiesta della Bbc metteva in evidenza come l’adesione allo Stato islamico fosse divenuta economicamente più appetibile per gli afghani, considerato lo stipendio di 500$ mensili, cui il movimento talebano (in guerra dal 2001) non può sicuramente entrare in concorrenza. Il pericolo di un progressivo sbilanciamento di forze a favore delle bandiere nere era stato denunciato dallo stesso leader Mullah Omar, ora defunto, in una lettera proprio rivolta al Califfo Al-Baghdadi, anche lui passato a miglior vita.  Nella stessa il Mullah intimava il fu Califfo di “non cercare di penetrare in Afghanistan” e che la sua azione stava “pericolosamente dividendo il mondo musulmano. E a rendere ancora più ingovernabile il Paese è la frammentazione etnico-tribale

The Missing Witness Negative Inference and the Impeachment Proceedings (12/1/19)

 Cache   
A couple of days ago, I wrote on the D.C. Circuit Court’s rejection of another Bullshit Tax Shelter.  D.C. Circuit Swats Down Bullshit Tax Shelter (Federal Tax Crimes Blog 11/29/19), here.  One of the issues discussed in the case (but only lightly discussed in the blog) is the negative inference that a trier of fact may draw from a missing witness.  I noted: “In its most common iteration, the missing witness negative inference is deployed when the witness is controlled by one of the party’s to the litigation.”  I use this separate blog entry to discuss the missing witness negative inference in this context because of its potential for its application where, in the impeachment proceedings or the resulting trial, President Trump has control or suasion over witnesses whom he directs or encourages not to testify.

A good statement of the missing witness rule--usually invoked in a jury instruction context to explain to the jury how to use the rule--is (United States v. St. Michael's Credit Union, 880 F.3d 579, 597 (1st Cir. 1989), here (cleaned up):
The rationale behind the missing witness instruction has been stated as follows: "the failure of a party to produce available evidence that would help decide an issue may justify an inference that the evidence would be unfavorable to the party to whom it is available or whom it would ordinarily be expected to favor." 2 C. Wright, Federal Practice and Procedure § 489 (1982). First Circuit precedent has established three circumstances that may warrant a missing witness instruction.  
The jury may draw an inference adverse to a party toward whom the missing witness is favorably disposed, because the party would normally be expected to produce such a witness. In addition, the jury may draw an adverse inference when a party fails to produce a material witness who is peculiarly available to that party. Finally, when a party having exclusive control over a witness who could provide relevant, noncumulative testimony fails to produce the witness, it is permissible to draw an adverse inference from that party's failure to do so, even in the absence of any showing of the witness's predisposition toward the party.
Readers will note that the negative inference from a missing witness is an evidentiary context for inferences that we use everyday in all sorts of contexts beyond a trial setting.  If it is important to establish the truth of a proposition then any party who withholds potentially important evidence as to the truth or falsity of the proposition, then an inference can be and often is drawn that the evidence would be negative to that party.  The inference is deployed in a trial setting where it is critically important to establish the truth of facts which the trier of fact (judge or jury) is requested to find.  The party who suffers if the fact is or is not true and declines to produce evidence within that party's control can be subject to a negative inference as to the content of the withheld evidence.  Just that simple.

In the current context, President Trump has directed and clearly signaled to all persons within his control or suasion that they should not testify.  That is the classic case in which the missing witness negative inference can be made.  As I indicated, that rule is important in fact finding in every day life and in trials.

The claim of at least some privileges can in some types of cases defeat the negative inference.  Certainly, in a criminal proceeding, a defendant's assertion of the of Fifth Amendment by not testifying (and not being compelled to testify) does not permit the trier of fact to infer that his testimony would be negative and use that inference to convict the defendant.  (Well, at least the trier of fact is not supposed to do that, but to the extent the jurors have comfortably used that type of negative inference in their every day lives, then they might well factor in the inference at the margins even in the face of an instruction from the court that they should not consider the defendant's failure to testify in assessing whether the evidence actually presented at trial establishes guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.)  But, the assertion of the Fifth Amendment privilege in a civil case can permit the negative inference.  See e.g., Baxter v. Palmigiano, 425 U.S. 308, 318 (1976) (the "prevailing rule [is] that the Fifth Amendment does not forbid adverse inferences against parties to civil actions where they refuse to testify.")

As I understand it, Trump claims in directing or discouraging witnesses from testifying that he is not doing it to protect himself from impeachment or conviction but rather to preserve the prerogatives of the presidency, particularly the executive communications privilege (however worded).  Setting aside the credibility of that claim of constitutional high ground, perhaps the better analogy for the current context is the attorney-client privilege.  Without getting into the weeds on that issue, the cases are not consistent.  See e.g., E.g., Deborah Stavile Bartel, Drawing Negative Inferences Upon a Claim of the Attorney-Client Privilege, 60 Brooklyn L. Rev. 1355 (1995), here (although she argues that the negative inference should not be permitted in criminal and civil cases because the underlying basis for the privilege is the same in both types of proceedings).  The trend seems to be that no negative inference should apply from the invocation of the attorney client privilege.   E.g., Knorr-Bremse Sys. Fuer Nutzfahrzeuge GMBH v. Dana Corp., 383 F.3d 1337, 1344 (Fed. Cir. 2004) ("no adverse inference shall arise from invocation of the attorney-client and/or work product privilege"); Parker v. Prudential Ins. Co., 900 F.2d 772, 775 (4th Cir.1990) (no negative inference permitted from assertion of attorney-client privilege); In re Tudor Assocs Ltd. III., 20 F.3d 115, 120 (4th Cir. 1994) ("A negative inference should not be drawn from the proper invocation of the attorney-client privilege.").

So the question that I can’t answer is whether a court called upon to consider or advise a jury on potential adverse inferences from the exercise of the executive communications privilege would apply the Fifth Amendment privilege rule or the trending attorney-client privilege rule.  And the practical question is whether the missing witness negative inference would be outcome determinative for any trier of fact (either the House members in framing and approving the charges) or the Senate members (in voting on conviction).

Finally, and a diversion, in considering the missing witness negative inference rule, I was reminded of the famous country ballad (famous, but not very old as folk ballads go) Long Black Veil.  Basically, in this case, there was a missing witness that could have saved the defendant with an alibi, but alas the defendant did not call that witness for reasons having nothing to do with privilege.  In this case, the missing witness would have testified favorably to the defendant (at least favorably in terms of his guilt or innocence of the crime charged), but the trier of fact did not know about the missing witness and thus made no inference one way or the other.

The Long Black Veil
Johnny Cash Version (YouTube here)

Ten years ago, on a cold dark night
Someone was killed, 'neath the town hall light
There were few at the scene, but they all agreed
That the slayer who ran, looked a lot like me

The judge said son, what is your alibi
If you were somewhere else, then you won't have to die
I spoke not a word, thou it meant my life
For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife

She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees
Nobody knows but me

Oh, the scaffold is high and eternity's near
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
But late at night, when the north wind blows
In a long black veil, she cries ov're my bones

She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees
Nobody knows but me

The latest Marquette Law School poll, conducted Nov. 13-17, has some discouraging news for us: "Even as hearings that could lead to President Donald Trump’s impeachment heat up, a new Marquette University Law School poll of Wisconsin registered voters finds consistent, if sometimes modest, shifts in public opinion away from support of impeachment and toward supporting Trump in next year’s presidential election." But it is worth pointing out that the first witnesses to testify in open hearings appeared on Nov. 13 and the last hearing, with Dr. Fiona Hill and David Holmes, occurred on Nov. 21. In other words, the poll was in the field even as the impeachment inquiry got under way: so not a good snapshot of the impact of the inquiry on Wisconsin voters.

But even if the results of the poll are accurate enough, the takeaway should be to work harder to win in Wisconsin next year. Right now there is not that much going on (see the short list of events for the next two weeks below). On Sunday December 8, however, Grassroots North Shore is having a special event that will take a clear-eyed look at our state's electoral prospects. Celinda Lake, founder and CEO of Lake Research, will talk to us about Tipping Point Wisconsin. Our state is likely to provide the Electoral College votes that determine who the president will be in 2021. A nationally renowned strategist and pollster, Ms. Lake brings insights both at the national level and for Wisconsin to bear on how we win this crucial election next year. So you'll not want to miss it. Please RSVP today and make a generous donation if you can.

New this year, we will be featuring a limited silent auction and craft show on the Church lower level. So come early to check it out and be sure to join us for the reception following the program. Cash or check is preferred.

Why does Grassroots North Shore hold a fundraiser each year? As one of the largest all-volunteer political organizations in the state, we need funds not to pay staff but to pay rent, maintain insurance, purchase office supplies, and run our internet operations (like this newsletter). We NEVER give money to candidates (though we do endorse once the general election candidates have been chosen). We work with others to run canvasses in our areas, to mount postcard campaigns, to host phone banks, to support house parties — in short all the activities that go into vigorous campaigning for progressive candidates. AND we provide educational and informative programs on crucial issues like climate change, gun safety, the state budget, gerrymandering, healthcare, and much more. We run a tight ship, on a budget of approximately $20,000 a year. And that's why we need your financial support as well as your help with various election tasks. In other words, we wouldn't ask if it weren't important! You can donate online or bring a check, credit card, or cash to the event.

It's a busy time of year. No doubt that's why the events list for the next two weeks is rather slim. But nomination papers for the spring 2020 elections should be out soon and are due in Madison on Tuesday, January 7, 2020. The primary will be held on Tuesday, February 18. The nonpartisan election and the presidential primary is scheduled for April 7. For nonpartisan elections, early voting usually takes place for the two weeks prior to the primary or the election, ending on the Friday before the election at 5pm. Most of the cities, villages, and non-incorporated areas hold early voting at the primary administrative site for that entity. As usual, our website will have specific information for each area. In the meantime, however, mark your calendars with the important dates: Tuesday, February 18, for the primary and Tuesday, April 7, for the nonpartisan election and the presidential primary.

In addition to other important municipal and judicial elections, the spring elections will determine the make-up of the Wisconsin Supreme Court. And that election could not be more important for restoring balance, and dare I say sanity, to Wisconsin's politics. HUGE turnouts are our best weapons in both the February primary and the April election. Grassroots North Shore plans robust campaign activities ahead of those dates — more on the specifics as we move into January — and we hope you'll come work with us throughout the electoral season. At the very least, you need to plan to be informed about the candidates in your area and to make a plan to vote. You can vote by mail, you can vote early, or you can vote on election day itself. You can check your registration, ballot, and polling location at MyVote Wisconsin.

And here endeth the lesson!

Worried?

 Cache   

I have a confession. I?m a worrier. But I don?t worry if the Dallas Cowboys or the Houston Texans will make the playoffs, I worry about my family?s health and well being. Right now I?m especially worried about my mother and one of my brothers-in-law. Both are dealing with issues that I pray daily about. And I know I?m not supposed to worry, the Good Book teaches that if the Provider takes care of the birds he?ll take care of us (see Matthew 6:25-27). I get it. But I can?t help it. It?s the times we live in. And I?m worried.

Sometime last month, a Dallas pastor declared that if the current impeachment process leads to Trump?s removal it might cause a ?civil war-like fracture? in this country. Of course, Trump embraced the comments. It would be too easy to suggest that these individuals have little understanding of the historical implications of the Civil War. They do. However, it would not be grandstanding to say that those four years (1861-1865) radically changed American society. So much so that more than 150 years later folks are still debating its meaning and outcome.

One cannot use speech like that and not know that it will elicit certain responses from certain groups. The South en masse never apologized for secession. Given the conduct of the original Thirteen Colonies who seceded from England, I?m not sure they should. Maybe in a democracy people should have the right to change their government when the government no longer protects their rights (see the Declaration of Independence).

So if I?m not expecting an apology for secession, should I expect an apology from the South for the vile institution of slavery? Again, probably not. Remember, those 17th, 18th, and 19th century European immigrants believed people of color were lower than themselves on the evolutionary ladder. The pseudo-science of the day reinforced this. Then, with regards to slavery, the South believed they were within their rights to exploit, rape, maim, and defile an entire segment of the population, based solely on race, without considering the negative longitudinal effects.

Sadly, the black community is still suffering from many of those longitudinal effects. For example, the decades of lynching immortalized by Billie Holiday?s haunting song ?Strange Fruit? typified the pain from watching loved ones murdered and the bodies put on public display as a warning to others. Our society has yet to come to grips with the fact that such violence was used principally as a tool of social control. After 1865, fearing blacks would gain social and political equality, some in the white community believed violence was the best means to reestablish their superiority. For some reason, the federal government seemed unable, or unwilling, to do anything meaningful to deter such behavior.

So, I?m worried about the times we live in. A short time ago, a baseball umpire used Twitter to announce that he would buy an AR-15 if Trump is impeached. The quote I saw online implied such political action (impeachment) would be a siren call, of sorts, for all those who believe Trump is their leader. One of the things that worries me involves who are the individuals that believe Trump is their leader? Since the summer of 2015, political talking heads have argued that a majority of Trump supporters are from the Religious Right and white supremacists. Wow.

Now I?m really worried. Are these two groups one and the same? Maybe I should leave that question for another day.

So, there?s public admission that some of Trump?s supporters plan to purchase advanced military weapons and initiate a new civil war if/when it is acknowledged that Trump has violated the oath of his office. So who are these weapons to be used against? While there?s no overt mention of racial animosities, the history of European descendants shows that they never commit violence against themselves. But, Native Americans, Latin Americans, and those of African descent better be on guard.

Furthermore, that same history is rife with examples of communities being devastated because of racial animosities. No, I?m not referring to the dark ages when barbarians roamed the European countryside pillaging and raping at will. I?m thinking of places like Rosewood and Tulsa right here in the good ?ole USA. It?s hard to imagine your communities being torn asunder for no apparent reason other than racial hatred. But too often this has been the fate of this country?s black community since 1619.

So, I?m a worrier. I know I shouldn?t be, but it?s who I am. I believe in the Good Book and I certainly believe the Provider will deliver on His promises. Still, I don?t know if Trump will be impeached or not. Other demagogues have come before and I?m sure many will come in the future. I can?t control that. All I can do is pray for the health of my family and for those across this land who just want to feed and clothe their children and take a vacation every now and then.

Still, it?s frightening that some in this society feel threatened because others disagree with their view of the world and their version of morality. I?m sorry but I don?t believe an AR-15 is a solution. The threat of Trump?s followers taking up arms to keep him in the White House may have unintended consequences for this society. I?m really worried about this because I don?t think the Constitution has a remedy for such consequences.

Yep, I?m a worrier.

Later.

PS: Still waiting on those promised tax returns.

Teacher Fired After Asking Trump to 'Remove' Immigrants Wins Her Appeal

Teacher Fired After Asking Trump to 'Remove' Immigrants Wins Her AppealA high school English teacher in Texas who was fired after she sent tweets to President Donald Trump asking him to rid her school of immigrants in the country illegally should be reinstated or be paid a year's salary, a state agency ruled this week.But the ruling is probably not the last turn in the story, as the Fort Worth Independent School District said that it believed her firing was appropriate and that it would appeal the state's ruling."We stand by our decision because we firmly believe this is in the best interests of all students," Kent P. Scribner, the superintendent of the school district, said in a statement this week.The state found that the teacher, Georgia Clark, should be reinstated and get back pay and employment benefits, or instead of being allowed to return to her job, she could receive one year's salary from the date she would have been reinstated, according to its ruling."The day the petitioner would have been reinstated is the day respondent tenders petitioner payment in full," the commissioner of the Texas Education Agency, Mike Morath, wrote in the ruling.Clark has not received a paycheck from the district since June, a district spokesman said.The district said it would appeal; an appeal would be heard by the state agency that ruled in Clark's favor, a district spokesman said.Efforts to reach Clark, who has worked at the school district since 1998, were unsuccessful Friday. Brandon Brim, her lawyer, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.In an interview with the television station WFAA in September, Clark said she wanted her job back. Asked how she would address the local Hispanic community, Clark said, "If you need someone to help your child graduate, you're looking at her right here."On May 17, in a series of tweets directed to Trump's Twitter account and addressed to "Mr. President," Clark said that her school district was "loaded" with students in the country illegally from Mexico, that her high school had been "taken over by them" and that drug dealers had not been punished.She blamed an assistant principal, whom she referred to as a "Hispanic assistant principal who protects certain students from criminal prosecution."A student separately said that on that same day, Clark had made "ethnically demeaning" comments in class, according to a report from an independent examiner that heard Clark's appeal and recommended that she be reinstated. She was accused of asking for a student's "papers" to go to the restroom, among other statements.On May 22, in more tweets directed to Trump, she wrote, "I really do need a contact here in Fort Worth who should be actively investigating and removing the illegals" from the public school system.The city of Fort Worth has one of the nation's highest Hispanic populations: Almost 35% of its residents identified as Hispanic or Latino in 2018.Clark acknowledged posting the tweets but said she believed they were private messages to Trump, according to the hearing examiner's report. Her Twitter account no longer exists.The school board moved to fire Clark in June, saying the public outcry from parents, students and members of the local community over her conduct in class and on social media "caused substantial disruptions in operations at the campus."In firing Clark, the district cited the May 17 episode in class, the tweets and an episode during the 2013-14 school year, when some students accused Clark of referring to a group of Hispanic students as "Little Mexico" and a white student as "white bread."But the report from the independent examiner rejected the district's rationale. It said students complaining of Clark's conduct in class on May 17 -- the accounts of which she disputed -- were not credible or were motivated by a bias against her.The report said that there was not enough evidence to substantiate the 2013-14 episode and that Clark's tweets were "free speech.""Clark's tweets are statements of a citizen on a matter of public concern protected by the United States Constitution and do not contravene or impair policies or proper performance of the district's functions," the report said.The report said that annual appraisals showed that "she has been evaluated as an excellent teacher consistently throughout her employment" with the district.This article originally appeared in The New York Times.(C) 2019 The New York Times Company

How broad has their study been on what everyone does/is/feels, if they've done any real study at all? Why are they saying something is normal: is it because they really think it is, or just because they badly want it, or themselves, to be? Are they saying something is normal in order to educate and inform people to earnestly help better their lives, or to try and control people for their own benefit? What about the fact that so often, people who are loudest about what is or should be "normal" are people for whom that given standard isn't even what's normal for them?

At this point I wanted to curl up in bed and not talk to them until they left.Isla, 'they' doesn't always work for some expressions for instance, 'Emily thinks that they want to ski' isn't grammatically correct, because the third person singular part of the verb (wants) should be used for Emily.

For Trump, whose statements as a presidential candidate about Mexican immigrants, women and Muslims have drawn charges of racism and sexism, his role as a defendant in a discrimination case put him near the center of a civil rights era struggle over society's changing views about race and culture. The 20 month legal battle marked the first time Trump became a regular presence on newspaper front pages. It served as an early look at the hardball tactics he has employed in business and, more recently, in politics. animal dildo

dog dildo Honestly, I really do think that the women (who I would say are relatively uncommon, and broad study backs that up) who get fixated on size are inheriting that fixation from men, who have always been the common group to have that fixation. Most of this junk about size comes right from you guys. So, when you start to feel insecure about this stuff, see if you can't check in with yourself and recognize that you are probably projecting your own insecurities unto other people. dog dildo

Weekend Wonders: TKB Bakery & Deli

 Cache   

Things To Do In LA presents Weekend Wonders, thoughtful trips to take selfies on an hour or more from LA.

That's a big damn fine sandwich! Past the big ol' cock. There's a rooster statue before you find a plain looking building with TKB at the top. Once inside you'll be in a 7-Eleven landscape of soda and chips to get. A bakery of delicious goods before you, a line stretched to where you are. And on the other side, where you order your big honkin' sandwich.

A hidden gem on the way to Phoenix, Arizona or just past Palm Springs and nestled into the tiny town of Indio is the TKB Bakery. Which somehow got the title of Best Restaurant on Yelp in 2018. It's good and had good service, but it won the title? Woah. We're not sure we agree, but Hell, we do love the place.

First off, it's got funny names for the sandwiches you can get. How about a Mexican Marylin Monroe, The Trump or the so nice to say Sadda-Mizer. There's a lot more option of hot and cold sandwiches, but either way you're getting a ton of meat and these aren't petite. These are tremendous sandwiches that come with a pickle and chips. It was so filling, some of us as at TTDILA couldn't finish it out on our trip. You come hungry and empty. Skip breakfast. Taste was delicious, big sandwiches, big taste.

Then to add to the calorie count this place is also a bakery. And we don't mean a few things, there's a big selection of cookies and cakes and brownies and scones. This is not a good place if you're on a diet. It's a place to chow down.

One of the best parts might be the playful and helpful staff. They seemed attentive and knowledgeable for newcomers. At the same time if you're gonna ask a million questions or say you can't hear them, they're gonna mess with you. However, when we met the owner going by the name Big Sip, yeah, it's funny, he was nice enough to explain the place is family owned and how it all works on ordering. We did get in before a big stretch of people came in. So, nice depends on the line.

We didn't know, but once you order, unless your picking up, sit down and they'll bring you your food. And get their early before everyone gets in on the weekend, because their dining area will fill up fast.

The place where you sit down and munch isn't all that amazing; it's so big the walls have banners on winning best on Yelp and then oddly local advertising for the weirdest sh*t. One wall is a huge projection of sports. Really, where you order has a nice look and we do wish they would put in some murals, but hey, it is what it is. A damn fine sandwich shop and bakery that will satiate your hunger from the long drive.

Politicians have come a long way on climate since 2016. Are voters ready?

 Cache   
Story 353181695

This story was originally published by Slate and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration.

As much as I try to forget it, one of the enduring moments of the 2016 election was Hillary Clinton, in her speech accepting the Democratic nomination for president, deploying “I believe in science” as a laugh line. It was supposed to be humorous because the thought of a president who had said climate change was a Chinese hoax still felt ludicrous. Three years and so many terrible environmental decisions later, it feels a lot less funny. This election cycle, though, Democratic candidates have advanced from where Clinton was in 2016. They’re finally speaking cogently, compellingly, and gravely about the threat we face and the urgency with which we ought to act.

One of the more surprising themes of the past few years has been the mainstreaming of worry over climate change, thanks to the work of scientists, activists, journalists, and, due to our new normal of floods and fires, lived experience. It’s increasingly considered an urgent issue among the Democratic base: Data for Progress ranks climate change as the second most important priority, topped only by beating President Donald Trump, while Pew Research puts it third in terms of issues for Dems. Former candidate Jay Inslee centered his entire short-lived primary campaign on the idea that addressing climate change was the most important action any president could hope to take in 2020. Voters’ interest and candidates’ prioritization seem to have worked together to make climate a focus in many of the Democratic debates so far. According to Vox, climate change ranks fourth in terms of time spent on topics (after health care, immigration, and racial equality), with about 45 minutes devoted to it total before the November debate.

All of this adds up to a remarkable departure from years past, when climate has been so overlooked that environmental journalists essentially made a minibeat out of tracking how little time presidential debates spent on the topic. (In the previous five cycles, 37 minutes and 6 seconds of prime time, general-election debate time was spent on climate change, out of some 1,500 aired minutes.) It’s hard for the counters to break the habit. Even following Wednesday night’s debates, in which climate came up naturally multiple times (better, I think, given the inherently interdisciplinary nature of the topic), there were still confused takes lamenting the lack of time devoted to the subject.

There’s something frustrating about how the candidates are talking about climate change, but you can’t measure it in debate minutes. It’s certainly a relief that we’ve moved on from the years when debating climate change was the time for certain candidates to demonstrate their scientific bona fides and explain the greenhouse gas effect. We’ve finally turned the corner: During Wednesday’s debate, climate change was a business, health, and infrastructure problem, highlighting how much it now weaves through so many aspects of American politics, from housing to natural disasters to the refugee crisis. It is no longer an abstraction but something connected to human needs. Our understanding of this makes obvious why addressing it is a political priority.

But the rapid nature of the turn has left us a bit lost, too. Years of debating health care have left even casual observers with strong feelings on “Medicare for All” and individual mandates. Climate is trickier: Candidates are attempting to detail their plans to curb emissions, but our current lack of existing legislation on this means only those extremely steeped in climate policy are positioned to effectively judge their strategies. (Grist has a very thorough look at every 2020 candidate’s climate policy. It is, by no fault of theirs, an incredible amount of information to parse.) We can slice through the debate chatter in which everyone promises climate action matters to them to understand how the plans compare on a relative spectrum (Senator Bernie Sanders’ and Senator Elizabeth Warren’s are, unsurprisingly, the most ambitious), but two scary questions still hang over everything: Will any of these plans become law? And: Will it be enough?

I think this second question is what the debate-timers really want to know. Before he dropped out in August, Inslee had pushed for an entire debate focused solely on climate, a reasonable enough strategy to up expectations and set standards. The Democratic National Committee refused to grant this request, but others were happy to. Since the DNC rules bar the candidates from participating in traditional debate-style forums they don’t approve, we ended up with events like September’s “Climate Crisis Town Hall,” where 10 candidates took turns individually fielding questions from a moderator on CNN. The whole thing took seven hours. The candidates were able to get very specific about climate policies thanks to the format, but the ratings were terrible.

In early November, another attempt was made at a climate-focused forum. The Weather Channel, along with the journalistic collaboration Climate Desk, released an hourlong climate-focused special featuring several presidential candidates called “Race to Save the Planet.” (Slate contributes to Climate Desk but did not participate in this project.) Perhaps learning from CNN, the hosts did not even attempt to allow all the candidates their own time to describe their plans. Instead, the special makes somewhat ruthless use of the interviews toward presenting the case that climate change is happening and costing Americans dearly, and therefore requires action. It was not dissimilar from what’s been happening on the Democratic primary debate stage — this mainstreaming of climate action as a political necessity — and it’s also of a piece with a larger ongoing project of the Weather Channel’s. For years now, it has been quietly and methodically including climate change in its coverage of the weather, while also investing in big-picture projects that attempt to explain the breadth of the problem to its often very-center-of-the-road audience. (Its “United States of Climate Change” feature, for example, takes pains to have one story for every state.)

One interesting thing about the special, relevant to the question of how climate legislation could ever pass: It featured eight presidential candidates, three of them Republicans. On the Democratic side, there was Sanders, Warren, Senator Cory Booker, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Senator Kamala Harris. (Beto O’Rourke participated before he dropped out of the race, so his portion was cut. Former Vice President Joe Biden, like Trump, was invited but declined to participate.) And then it had Republican primary challengers Bill Weld, Joe Walsh, and Mark Sanford. (Sanford dropped out of the race in mid-November, after the special had already aired.)

Why would Republican candidates, even long-shot Republican candidates, show up for such a thing? I think it’s because they realize they ought to. Their voters are starting to care. Since 2016, most Americans, almost always more than 65 percent, have told Gallup that they know climate change is happening and that most scientists agree on this fact. By some counts the percentage is even higher — a survey from the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication suggests 73 percent of registered voters think it’s happening, and 63 percent are worried about it. The situation is still split along partisan lines, as you might expect. Gallup divides respondents into three groups: “concerned believers,” “mixed middle,” and “cool skeptics”; 77 percent of Democrats are “concerned believers” while 52 percent of Republicans are “cool skeptics.” But as the Yale study points out, “Worry about global warming has increased among liberal/moderate Republicans by 15 percentage points since May 2017 and by seven points among conservative Republicans since October 2017.” Part of this shift may be thanks to younger voters. One survey found that 77 percent of Republicans younger than 38 think climate change is a serious threat — compared with 76 percent of Democrats in the same category.

That’s not to say this is anywhere close to simple. Even as acceptance of global warming has grown among Republican voters, Republican lawmakers, seemingly enabled by Trump’s outlandish positions, have only grown more opposed to taking action on climate change. According to the League of Conservation Voters, elected Republican officials now vote against environmental legislation 95 percent of the time (this divergence has only sprung up in the past couple of decades). As the Guardian further points out, there might be a simple explanation for this: “Data collected by the transparency group OpenSecrets shows donations from oil and gas interests were split relatively evenly between the parties until the 2000s,” Guardian reporter Oliver Milman writes. “By the 2018 election cycle, 87 percent of industry contributions went to Republicans, with the proportion in the 2020 cycle, which is yet to be completed, reaching a record 89 percent.”

This underscores the real divide between the parties. It’s not so much that one believes in science and the other doesn’t. Not accepting the science on climate change has become so untenable that even Charles Koch has ostensibly reversed course. (Even Trump isn’t really a denialist. Instead, as the Atlantic’s Robinson Meyer smartly explained in a recent piece, it’s more useful to understand Trump as a carbonist, a person who thinks, for no good reason, that burning fossil fuels is basically macho and therefore good.) But it’s becoming ever clearer that the divide is basically that one party is willing to act to help the people who will suffer through the crisis and the other is aligned with companies hoping to keep on making money off it. The question is whether the latter will remain an option for the Republican Party.

To answer that question, it’s instructive to look back to what sparked the environmental movement of the 1960s and ’70s, prompting the bipartisan creation of the Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Endangered Species Act. The story starts with Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, serialized in the New Yorker in 1962, which explained how pollution, and particularly the insecticide DDT, was leeching into the natural world, weakening birds’ egg shells to the point that they couldn’t reproduce. America’s national bird, the bald eagle, was existentially threatened. And then — the story goes — the Cuyahoga River caught on fire, the photos went the 1969 version of viral (they were published in Time magazine and National Geographic), and the environmental movement was born. There were Earth Day protests in every city. Even Richard Nixon had to get on board.

The story is only partially right. By 1969, the Cuyahoga River, and other rivers around America, had been catching fire because of pollution for years. In fact, the infamous Time magazine photo was actually taken during another fire — in 1952. What happened in 1969 was that people were ready to act on what they were seeing, instead of dismissing or ignoring it. They had been primed by the years of activists ringing alarm bells. It wasn’t so much that the image of the fire woke people up — it was that the image of the fire finally tipped people over into action.

It feels like we could be on the cusp of an analogous situation now. Yes, it’s all made harder by the years of disinformation from fossil fuel companies that has been reinforced by the right, and yes, America is also facing a perplexing set of existential problems with regard to representative democracy in Washington. But we’ve also had years of alarm bell ringing and patient explanation. And we’ve had years of climate-linked catastrophe, years of stories about the climate-exacerbated natural disasters that are destroying people’s homes and lives with increasing frequency and furor. Democrats sound different when they talk about climate change now. They realize how many of us are finally ready to hear it.

Police discussed stopping Keystone XL protesters ‘by any means’

 Cache   
Story 353063086

This story was originally published by the Guardian and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration.

U.S. law enforcement officials preparing for fresh Keystone XL pipeline protests have privately discussed tactics to stop activists “by any means” and have labeled demonstrators potential “domestic terrorism” threats, records reveal.

Internal government documents seen by the Guardian show that police and local authorities in Montana and the surrounding region have been preparing a coordinated response in the event of a new wave of protests opposing the controversial Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, which would carry crude oil from Canada to Montana, South Dakota, and Nebraska.

Civil rights organizations say the documents raise concerns that law enforcement is preparing to launch an even more brutal and aggressive response than the police tactics utilized during the 2016 Standing Rock movement, which drew thousands of indigenous and environmental activists opposed to the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL) to North Dakota.

At Standing Rock, law enforcement organized repeated rounds of mass arrests and filed a wide array of serious charges in local and federal courts against activists. Police also deployed water cannons, teargas grenades, bean bag rounds, and other weapons, causing serious injuries to protesters.

The documents are mostly emails from 2017 and 2018 between local and federal authorities discussing possible Keystone protests. They show that police officials are anticipating construction will spark a sustained resistance campaign akin to the one at Standing Rock and that police are considering closing public lands near the pipeline project.

The new records have come to light as the Keystone pipeline project has overcome numerous legal hurdles with help from the Trump administration, and as the project’s owner, TC Energy (formerly TransCanada), is moving forward with initial construction efforts.

Among the major revelations in the documents:

  • Officials at a 2017 law enforcement briefing on potential Keystone XL protests said one key tactic would be to “initially deny access to the property by protestors and keep them as far away [from] the contested locations as possible by any means,” according to an email summary from a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers security manager in Nebraska in July 2017.
  • Officials with the Bureau of Land Management said in 2017 that the bureau had 10 armed officers in Montana and was prepared to “work with local [law enforcement] to deny access to federal property.” In 2018, Army Corps officials were also in discussions with the Montana disaster and emergency services department to discuss ways to “close access” to lands near the pipeline route, including areas typically open for hunting and other activities.
  • A “joint terrorism task force” involving the U.S. Attorney’s office and other agencies, along with federal “counterterrorism” officials, said it was prepared to assist in the response to protests and a “critical incident response team” would be available for “domestic terrorism or threats to critical infrastructure.” Authorities have also preemptively discussed specific potential felony charges that protesters could face, noting that a “civil disorder” statute was used to prosecute activists at Standing Rock.

“There is a lot of muscle behind this effort to make sure that Keystone is constructed,” said Alex Rate, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Montana, which obtained the documents through records act requests and shared them with the Guardian. “There are historically marginalized communities, primarily indigenous folks, who have grave concerns about the impact of this pipeline on their sovereignty, their resources, their religion, and culture. They have a first amendment right to assemble and make their viewpoints heard.”

Remi Bald Eagle, intergovernmental affairs coordinator of the Cheyenne River Sioux tribe, which is located along the pipeline route, said the police buildup was part of a long history of armed subjugation of native people in the region.“This is an experience of the tide of Manifest Destiny still coming at us,” Bald Eagle said, referring to the 19th-century belief that U.S. settlers had the right to expand across the continent.

The files follow repeated revelations that the FBI and other law enforcement agencies have investigated environmental groups and leftwing activists as possible “terrorists.”

Keystone XL was rejected by the Obama administration and then revived by Donald Trump shortly after his inauguration in 2017. The $8 billion project has been subject to multiple legal challenges, including over the environmental review process, but pre-construction efforts are now under way.

Opponents of Keystone XL have warned about the environmental and cultural impact of the project for a decade — concerns that came into sharper focus last month after the existing Keystone pipeline, which follows a similar route, leaked 383,000 gallons of tar sands into a swath of North Dakota wetlands.

The new Keystone records, which come from a number of government agencies and were released after a protracted legal battle, also show that officials have specifically met with police involved in the Standing Rock response to discuss “lessons learned.” North Dakota police officials told law enforcement prepping for Keystone that one of their biggest mistakes was their failure to keep activists far away and shut down access to nearby lands.

In one 2018 BLM document, labeled “KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE PUBLIC SAFETY ISSUES,” officials discussed the “available resources” to respond to protests in Montana.

“The FBI will have primary investigative authority for all national security investigations, including but not limited to international terrorism, domestic terrorism, and weapons of mass destruction,” BLM wrote.

U.S. Border Patrol would also be available to assist law enforcement around the border and has access to “drone assets,” the document continued. Border Patrol also provided a surveillance drone that police used to track Standing Rock protesters.

BLM also discussed purchasing “riot batons,” helmets, and gas masks in advance of possible protests.

Mike Glasch, an Army Corps spokesperson, said that the “by any means” comment came from the agency’s security chief, who was “relaying talking points” from police officials in Mandan and Morton County in North Dakota, adding: “Any method that we would employ to protect the safety of our employees and the public, as well as property and equipment, would be within the limits of the law and be the least invasive possible, while still protecting the public’s first amendment rights.”

A spokesperson for the Morton county sheriff, Kyle Kirchmeier, said he advises law enforcement that “may be involved with potential pipeline protests to make it their goal to keep protesters off of private property and any areas that may be considered a public hazard, such as ditches or highways,” adding that he “is supportive of people’s right to protest, but they need to do so in a lawful manner.” Kirchmeier said he did not recall the 2017 briefing.

A Mandan police spokesperson declined to comment.

Glasch said the Army Corps had not closed access to its land around the project, but added: “Since a construction site comes with inherent hazards, options are being analyzed for methods to keep any non-essential personnel away from potential construction sites, while at the same time considering constitutional rights.” He said it was too early to speculate about specific potential closure plans.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s office did not respond to questions about the “terrorism” references but said the office’s “goal is to provide coordinated assistance to local, tribal, and state law enforcement to protect public safety and civil rights, and to protect federal lands, while enforcing federal law.”

The FBI declined to comment.

A Border Patrol spokesperson said the agency would “assist, upon request, with any law enforcement activities within the border area near the pipeline.”

Spokespeople for BLM and TC Energy did not respond to questions.

“Law enforcement are getting ready. They’ve been having meetings behind closed doors,” said Angeline Cheek, an indigenous organizer from the Fort Peck reservation. “We know that they’re preparing … We’ve been preparing for the last three years.”

Rate, from the ACLU, said there was no legal justification for the government to preemptively shut down lands in an effort to stop protests. He said it was also troubling for law enforcement to prepare a “militarized” response and suggest that activists could pose terrorist or criminal threats before any actions had even begun.

“They are thinking of them as potential ‘domestic terrorists.’ There is simply no support for adopting that paradigm,” said Rate. “The public justifiably thinks of BLM as a land management agency and not necessarily in the business of arming themselves and going out and squelching protesters.”

Candi Brings Plenty, an Oglala Lakota Sioux activist working with the ACLU of Montana, said they were not surprised to learn that law enforcement was talking about stopping indigenous activists “by any means.”

“That is the type of language that has been spoken to us our whole lives,” they said, adding: “We live these injustices on a daily basis. This is finally being unveiled for what it is.”

Brings Plenty, who led a two-spirit camp at Standing Rock, said they would not be intimidated by law enforcement and hoped people would still support the fight against Keystone — instead of just accepting the pipeline.

“It’s almost become the norm for folks to look the other way, feeling like there isn’t something they can do, that it’s beyond their grasp,” they said. “I want folks to see these pipelines the way they do the glaciers in the Arctic. This is happening right here in their own front yard.”

Exxon knew — and so did coal

 Cache   
Story 352923584

This story was originally published by HuffPost and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration.

“Exxon knew.” Thanks to the work of activists and journalists, those two words have rocked the politics of climate change in recent years, as investigations revealed the extent to which giants like ExxonMobil and Shell were aware of the danger of rising greenhouse gas emissions even as they undermined the work of scientists.

But the coal industry knew, too — as early as 1966, a newly unearthed journal shows.

In August, Chris Cherry, a professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, salvaged a large volume from a stack of vintage journals that a fellow faculty member was about to toss out. He was drawn to a 1966 copy of the industry publication Mining Congress Journal; his father-in-law had been in the industry and he thought it might be an interesting memento.

Cherry flipped it open to a passage from James R. Garvey, who was the president of Bituminous Coal Research Inc., a now-defunct coal mining and processing research organization.

“There is evidence that the amount of carbon dioxide in the earth’s atmosphere is increasing rapidly as a result of the combustion of fossil fuels,” wrote Garvey. “If the future rate of increase continues as it is at the present, it has been predicted that, because the CO2 envelope reduces radiation, the temperature of the earth’s atmosphere will increase and that vast changes in the climates of the earth will result.”

“Such changes in temperature will cause melting of the polar icecaps, which, in turn, would result in the inundation of many coastal cities, including New York and London,” he continued.

Cherry was floored.

“It pretty well described a version of what we know today as climate change,” said Cherry. “Increases in average air temperatures, melting of polar ice caps, rising of sea levels. It’s all in there.”

In a discussion piece immediately following Garvey’s article, Peabody Coal combustion engineer James R. Jones noted that the coal industry was merely “buying time” before more air pollution regulations came into effect. “We are in favor of cleaning up our air,” he wrote. “Everyone can point to examples in his own community where something should be done. Our aim is to have control that does not precede the technical knowledge for compliance.”

Climate change is not Cherry’s area of study, but he was struck by how the tone of the articles differed from the way many fossil fuel companies talk about climate change today. Rather than engage in denial, the articles offered a fairly straightforward acknowledgment of the emerging science. (This reporter is also a writer for UT’s Tickle College of Engineering, where Cherry teaches.)

As Cherry did some of his own digging, he soon realized his discovery could be the first evidence that the coal industry was aware of the impending climate crisis more than half a century ago — a finding that could open mining companies to the type of litigation that the oil industry is now facing.

Decades of denial

While Peabody Energy, the largest private-sector coal company in the world and the largest producer of coal in the U.S., now acknowledges climate change on its website, it has been directly and indirectly involved in obfuscating climate science for decades. It funded dozens of trade, lobbying, and front groups that peddled climate misinformation, as The Guardian reported in 2016.

As recently as 2015, Peabody Energy argued that carbon dioxide was a “benign gas essential for all life.”

“While the benefits of carbon dioxide are proven, the alleged risks of climate change are contrary to observed data, are based on admitted speculation, and lack adequate scientific basis,” the company wrote in a letter that year to the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

At the heart of big coal’s denial campaign was Fred Palmer, who served as Peabody’s senior vice president of government relations from 2001 to 2015. In 1997, Palmer founded the Greening Earth Society, a now-defunct industry front group that argued that burning fossil fuels was good for the planet. The group was based in the same office as the Western Fuels Association, a consortium of coal suppliers and coal-fired utilities that Palmer also ran.

“Every time you turn your car on and you burn fossil fuels and you put CO2 into the air, you’re doing the work of the Lord,” Palmer told a Danish documentary team in 1997. “That’s the ecological system we live in.”

Asked for comment, a Peabody spokesperson told HuffPost:“Peabody recognizes that climate change is occurring and that human activity, including the use of fossil fuels, contributes to greenhouse gas emissions. We also recognize that coal is essential to affordable, reliable energy and will continue to play a significant role in the global energy mix for the foreseeable future. Peabody views technology as vital to advancing global climate change solutions, and the company supports advanced coal technologies to drive continuous improvement toward the ultimate goal of near-zero emissions from coal.”

Palmer, who did not respond to HuffPost’s request for comment, continues to carry the torch. He now works as an energy policy adviser to The Heartland Institute, a Chicago-based think tank whose climate denial is so severe that even ExxonMobil abandoned funding it and its climate denial efforts a decade ago. In 2011, leaked memos showed that the institute paid contrarian scientists like Craig Idso, founder of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change, $11,600 a month to promote carbon dioxide as beneficial to the environment.

The group sits at the heart of a broader right-wing misinformation network funded in large part by hedge fund billionaire Robert Mercer and his daughter, Rebekah, both Republican mega-donors who backed President Donald Trump and financed projects such as Breitbart News and Cambridge Analytica, the data firm considered key to Trump’s 2016 win. Palmer’s daughter, Downey Magallanes, was a top policy adviser at Trump’s Interior Department before joining oil giant BP in September 2018.

All of this was taking place well after climate change had become a commonly understood idea in the scientific community. A 1965 report from President Lyndon Johnson’s Science Advisory Committee was the first from the White House to address climate change (and is likely what precipitated the Mining Congress Journal article). “The climate changes that may be produced by the increased CO2 content could be deleterious from the point of view of human beings,” it warned. In 1988, NASA scientist James Hansen testified to Congress about what was then known as the “greenhouse effect.” And in 1992, the United Nations established the Framework Convention on Climate Change, an international treaty to begin addressing the problem.

But as this consensus emerged, so too did a wave of industry-funded climate denial via vast, shadowy networks of front groups, public relations campaigns, and scientists for hire.

Pulling back the curtain

In 2015, journalists at InsideClimate News, the Los Angeles Times, and Columbia University exposed internal ExxonMobil documents showing that the company’s scientists had a deep understanding of climate change even as Exxon worked publicly to downplay that science.

Twenty state attorneys general launched an “Exxon Knew” campaign, which eventually led to communities across the country filing at least 14 legal challenges against Exxon and other fossil fuel companies. One lawsuit, from the New York state attorney general’s office, went to trial on October 22 and focuses on how the company accounted for the costs of potential future regulations on climate change. The Massachusetts attorney general filed another suit on October 24, this time claiming the company had engaged in deceptive advertising and misled investors about the systemic financial risks to its business posed by fossil fuel-driven climate change. Earlier this month, two of Hawaii’s biggest municipalities sued Exxon and other big oil companies to recoup the costs of adapting to rising seas and more violent storms.

Evidence of what fossil fuel companies knew about climate change and when is critical to the legal strategy of those seeking damages for carbon dioxide emissions. If fossil fuel companies were aware of their products’ harmful effects on the planet, they could be held liable for damages.

Legal liability boils down to four factors, said David Bookbinder, chief counsel for the Niskanen Center, which is representing counties in Colorado that have filed suits: one, whether the defendants knew that their products would cause climate change; two, what they told or did not tell the public about the consequences of using their products; three, the extent of injuries caused by climate change; and four, whether the defendants’ actions have led to a portion of those injuries. What the plaintiffs in these suits can prove remains to be seen.

What we do know is that coal, when burned, has by far the biggest climate footprint of any fossil fuel, producing more carbon dioxide per unit than oil or gas. In the U.S. alone, coal produced 65 percent of the power sector’s planet-warming emissions. The 1966 article in the Mining Congress Journal certainly raises questions about what the coal industry knew at the time.

Robert Brulle, a professor emeritus of sociology and environmental science at Drexel University, authored a recent paper that suggests the coal industry must have known quite a bit, given how prominently it positioned itself in the climate denial movement.

Brulle researched 12 major groups and coalitions that argued against mandatory regulation of carbon dioxide from 1989 to 2015 — which he calls the “climate change countermovement.” That countermovement included 2,000 different businesses, political or social groups, as well as other organizations, but Brulle found that 179 core organizations belonged to multiple coalitions. Coal companies and predominantly coal-burning utilities were the most prevalent. He describes oil and gas companies as “more of a marginal player” by comparison.

“The coal mining industry — the utilities that were burning it for electricity, along with the railroads who were hauling it — and manufacturing industries like steel were the first corporate forces to become climate deniers and try to block action on climate policy,” said Kert Davies, founder and director of the Climate Investigations Center. “They fought the hardest because they had the biggest existential threat.”

Where do we go from here?

In the aftermath of the 1973 oil embargo, Exxon and other oil giants leased large parcels of land for coal mining with the goal of manufacturing synthetic fuels and lowering U.S. dependence on the Middle East.

Some previously released documents show that Exxon’s scientists began advising that the world phase out coal as a fuel as early as 1979. In one scenario, the Exxon scientists concluded that non-fossil fuels would need to be substituted for coal beginning in the 1990s to keep carbon dioxide levels below atmospheric concentrations of 440 parts per million. In 1999, Exxon merged with Mobil, and by 2002, ExxonMobil had dumped its coal assets.

Meanwhile, the coal industry tried to reinvent itself with the concept of “clean coal.” This as-yet-undelivered promise that carbon capture and other technological advances could lower coal’s environmental impact has been around for decades but resurged in the early 2000s as regulations seemed imminent.

The biggest proponent of this idea was the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, a coal front group that spent $35 million on public relations campaigns in 2008 alone, seeking to influence the election. A year later, ACCCE was caught sending Congress fraudulent letters opposing federal climate legislation and pretending to be from veterans, women’s, and civil rights groups. The incident led many members to leave the organization, but Peabody remains a member to this day.

“Its whole mission was to stop climate regulations but pretend that they were in favor of clean coal, which, of course, doesn’t exist,” said Davies.

Peabody Energy filed for bankruptcy protection in 2016, the same year carbon dioxide levels hit 400 parts per million. Eight other coal companies have filed for bankruptcy this year. Even as the Trump administration has promised a coal resurgence and rolled back Obama-era regulations, the industry’s profitability continues to experience a downward slide. If the slogan “Coal Knew” ever does take off, it’s unclear who’ll be left to sue.

What a Bloomberg candidacy could mean for climate

 Cache   
Story 352248938

This weekend, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg entered the presidential race in classic billionaire style: by buying up $30 million worth of TV ads. Bloomberg’s late-stage entry has sent a jolt through the Democratic primary. Will it do the same for the discussion around climate change — an issue that has been shunted to the tail end of a long progressive agenda?

Bloomberg, a former Republican worth a reported $58 billion, has long made bringing down emissions a centerpiece of his philanthropic work. With his help, the Sierra Club launched the Beyond Coal campaign — an initiative that supports grassroots efforts to shutter coal-powered plants across the United States. Sierra Club estimates the initiative is responsible for shuttering 40 percent of the nearly 300 coal plants that have closed so far. (However, some of those plants switched to natural gas, a less emissions-intensive fossil fuel, which Bloomberg endorsedas a “bridge fuel” as recently at 2016.) Bloomberg also pledged half a billion dollars to help launch Beyond Carbon, another Sierra Club effort that aims to shut down the nation’s remaining coal plants.

Bloomberg has also donated $5 million to the League of Conservation Voters, a group that keeps tabs on how members of Congress vote on climate and environment bills and lobbies for climate action. He’s donated more than $150 million to green groups in total. And he was some of the brains and most of the muscle behind America’s Pledge, a group that aims to fill the void Trump left when he exited the Paris climate agreement by galvanizing regional and local support for green policies.

Article continues below

There’s more on Bloomberg’s list of green accomplishments, but you get the picture. His money has done a lot of good for the environment. In fact, one could easily argue that Bloomberg has done more for climate action as a philanthropist than progressive elected officials have been able to manage in Congress. As fellow billionaire candidate Tom Steyer pointed out at the fifth Democratic presidential debate last week, Congress hasn’t yet passed a single climate bill.

If Bloomberg has had so much success tackling climate change outside the confines of the Capitol, and politicians have had so little success doing the same thing in Congress, why not just stay put?

New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has endorsed Bernie Sanders for president, made exactly that point in a tweet earlier this month. “Call me radical, but maybe instead of setting ablaze hundreds of millions of dollars on multiple plutocratic, long-shot, very-late presidential bids, we instead invest hundreds of millions into winning majorities of state legislatures across the United States?”

To borrow a phrase from Sanders, it’s possible that Bloomberg will be able to walk and chew bubble gum at the same time. He said he plans to spend $100 million in swing states pushing anti-Trump ads. And he could spend up to $20 million more on voter registration in those states. In other words, it’s not like the Bloomberg money tap is going to run dry now that he’s running for president.

Not to mention that the primary contest has been missing a climate hawk since Washington Governor Jay Inslee dropped out. The field could benefit from a new, climate-oriented addition, and Bloomberg has signaled an interest in filling that role. On his campaign website, Bloomberg cites “Fighting climate change” as one of his chief priorities. In the section on addressing the crisis, Bloomberg touts his record on climate and promises to “ensure the federal government leads an ambitious agenda to accelerate the U.S. toward a clean energy economy.”

But because he said he will not accept campaign donations, it’s unclear how Bloomberg will ever meet the Democratic National Committee’s official requirements to make it onto a debate stage. And, no matter how many millions he pours into the race, the billionaire will have to play a lot of catch up to boost his poll numbers. Right now, he’s polling with the bottom tier of 2020 candidates. Turns out there are still a few things money can’t buy.

You can care about climate change and still drive an SUV. I do.

 Cache   
Story 352048696

This story was originally published by Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists other Jones and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration.

When I pull into a parking lot in my Toyota 4Runner, I hope I won’t see any of my friends who are environmental activists. I hope I’ll fit into the eco-conscious (read: small) parking spaces at some of the places I shop. I feel like a skinny-car person in a fat-truck body.

It turns out that vehicles like mine — known as sport utility vehicles, or SUVs — are even worse for the climate than I had imagined. And I imagined they were pretty bad.

A massive carbon footprint

According to a summary analysis of a report by the International Energy Agency that was released on November 13, SUVs are the second-biggest cause of the rise in global carbon dioxide emissions during the past decade. Only the power sector is a bigger contributor.

The analysis, which surprised even its own authors, found a dramatic shift toward SUVs. In 2010, 1 in 5 vehicles sold was an SUV; today it’s 2 in 5. “As a result, there are now over 200 million SUVs around the world, up from about 35 million in 2010,” the agency reports.

The preference for heavier SUVs is offsetting fuel-efficiency improvements in smaller cars and carbon savings from the growing popularity of electric cars. “If SUV drivers were a nation, they would rank seventh in the world for carbon emissions,” reported the Guardian.

I’m part of that imaginary nation. I don’t have kids. I don’t fly often. But I have a big honkin’ SUV that is killing the planet. For those of us who are worried about our carbon footprints, driving an SUV is like wearing a pair of size-18 steel-toe boots.

Status symbols on wheels

What’s the attraction of SUVs? Consumers who buy them hand manufacturers a higher profit margin than for smaller vehicles. The weight and boxy shape of SUVs makes them less fuel-efficient, so they cost more to operate and are less nimble than passenger cars. Some people feel safer in a vehicle where they sit high above the road, but the raised center of gravity makes SUVs more prone to rollovers than cars, said Consumer Reports. Some people want an SUV because they believe that an all-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive option will make them safer in bad weather. In reality, many drivers do not need this expensive and fuel-economy-lowering feature, and would be better off with front-wheel-drive and good tires.

Still, those disadvantages didn’t stop me and my husband from buying a full-size SUV that weighs 4,675 pounds and averages only about 19 miles per gallon. We claim we “need” an SUV to get around in the rural, mountainous area where we live, but somehow we managed to survive here for a decade without one.

People often buy vehicles for reasons that have very little to do with functionality. For many people, an SUV is a status symbol. And that is also true — perhaps even more so — for people who drive hybrid or all-electric passenger cars. A 2007 survey of Toyota Prius buyers found that more than half said they purchased a Prius because “it makes a statement about me.” Some of them are now incensed that Toyota is siding with the Trump administration against California’s efforts to improve fuel economy.

I have the opposite problem. I appreciate the utility of my sport utility vehicle, but I’m embarrassed to be seen in it. Call it “SUVskam,” Swedish for SUV shame. I’m not so ashamed (or wealthy) that I will drive to the nearest junkyard and have it crushed for its scrap metal. But I am doing everything I can to reduce the carbon footprint of my SUV.

What would Greta drive?

SUVskam isn’t a thing yet, but flight shame (or “flygskam” in Swedish) is, thanks in part to the efforts of Swedish teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg to raise public awareness of the carbon emissions associated with air travel. In Europe, many flight-shamed people are switching from planes to trains. Thunberg went a step further, avoiding flygskam by taking a sailboat instead of an airliner when she traveled to the United States — and again when she left for Spain last week. Flight shame has reduced air travel enough to catch the attention of the International Air Transport Association, which is launching a campaign to tout its environmental efforts.

Calculating the carbon emissions of air travel is not as simple as “planes bad, trains good,” though. It’s complicated. It depends, for example, on how far you’re traveling and how many people are traveling with you. The same is true for SUVs. A 16-mpg Chevrolet Suburban carrying six carpoolers is burning less fuel per person than a 52-mpg Toyota Prius with no passengers.

Even if you drive an SUV, there are plenty of ways to reduce your carbon footprint. For starters, not all SUVs are created equal. My 4Runner is a gas guzzler, for sure, but it gets much better mileage than a Mercedes G550 or Jeep Grand Cherokee or Nissan Armada. Hybrid SUVs, which get even better mileage, are available for some models — but cost an average of nearly $4,000 more than their gasoline-only counterparts. Mainstream manufacturers are beginning to introduce all-electric luxury models to compete with the Tesla Model X, which costs more than twice as much as an SUV like mine. GM might even bring back the notorious Hummer as a zero-emissions SUV.

While a plug-in SUV is certainly better for the climate than a gasoline-powered model, automakers aren’t introducing these vehicles because they’re committed to climate action. They’re simply trying to capitalize on the popularity of SUVs, and to make people like me feel okay about choosing an SUV over a smaller electric vehicle that would be better for the climate.

Of course, shame isn’t a solution to anything. Those of us who already own SUVs must try to minimize our carbon footprints by reducing the miles we drive in these beasts — for example, by combining errands and walking or biking or taking public transportation when that’s an option. We can also do our best to maximize fuel efficiency — for example, by removing roof boxes and other items that add weight when not in use, taking it easy on the pedals, and optimizing fuel economy by keeping tires properly inflated.

Finally, SUV drivers can support policies such as higher gasoline taxes and higher fees for licensing heavier vehicles, even if doing so makes it more expensive to drive an SUV. After all, if you can afford to buy a vehicle that costs $30,000 or more, there’s no good reason why you can’t pay a little more than the owners of smaller vehicles toward public transportation and road maintenance. I voted against Initiative 976 in my home state of Washington, but the majority of voters just approved a flat $30 licensing fee for all vehicles — replacing a fee structure in which heavier, more damaging vehicles paid more.

Shame on the White House

Of course, individual actions are no substitute for corporate and government leadership. Whether I drive an SUV or a Prius will make very little difference for the climate. But if Akio Toyoda (the president of Toyota) and Donald Trump (who rides in an armored Cadillac that weighs more than 15,000 pounds) continue to support a rollback of auto-emissions standards, their choices will dramatically increase global warming and air pollution.

As leading climate scientist Michael Mann of Pennsylvania State University recently observed, climate deniers are attempting to deflect attention away from necessary systemic changes by encouraging well-meaning people to point fingers at one another instead of at the fossil fuel industry. Still, peer pressure can help move people toward healthy habits, as the popularity of bicycling has done in places like Copenhagen — where people of all ages ride bikes to work and school in any weather.

There are no one-size-fits-all solutions to climate change. Only by examining our own choices, and demanding that businesses and governments adopt emissions-reducing policies and regulations, can we make the progress that will be required if we are to leave future generations with a stable climate. On November 5, 11,000 scientists published a warning that the planet is facing a “climate emergency” that is “closely linked to excessive consumption” and will result in “untold suffering” if society does not undergo major transformations.

“Excessive consumption” is an apt description for the glut of SUV sales worldwide. SUV purchasing has been called an “arms race,” in which people are buying bigger vehicles mostly for one reason: Everyone else is.

That’s a shame.

Wrong on ALL counts, as usual Bobski.

Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort: Sentenced to seven and a half years in prison for financial crimes and lying to Mueller

Konstantin Kilimnik: Charged with obstruction of justice during the Manafort investigation

Trump confidant Roger Stone: Convicted of lying to Congress tampering with a witness and obstructing the 2017 congressional investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn: Pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about his contacts with Russia on Trump's behalf

Former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates: Pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about Trump

Former Trump personal lawyer Michael Cohen: Pleaded guilty to tax and bank charges, campaign finance violations and lying to Congress for Trump

Former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos:in January of 2017, Papadopoulos repeatedly lied about his contacts with Russian agents. He pleaded guilty

Alex van der Zwaan: Served 30 days in prison then deported for lying to investigators about Trump

Sam Patten: Pleaded guilty to failing to register as a foreign lobbyist in order to funnel foreign money to Trump's campaign

Bijan Kian and Skim Alptekin: Charged with conspiring to violate lobbying laws while working for Flynn

Those are just some convicted by Mueller for crimes after the election committed for Trump.

Democrats Are Rigging The Primaries Again And The Backlash Will Drive Voters To Trump Just Like 2016

 Cache   

Democrats Are Rigging The Primaries Again And The Backlash Will Drive Voters To Trump Just Like 2016. How is it that Sleepy Creepy Joe Biden is the front runner for the Democrats?

Perhaps its just name recognition and most Americans don;t actually care. Biden is familiar so he likely gets support by default. But when looking at engagement and donations it seems that Bernie is the actual frontrunner. He has raised nearly double what Biden has.

But more importantly we can see how the democratic establishment keeps out people it does not like, notably Bernie in 2016 and now Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang. The Republican establishment did not want Donald Trump but fortunately for conservatives they didn't rig their primaries so Trump won.

A recent Suffolk poll has Tulsi at 6% nationwide. This makes sense because of the recent publicity she has had over the Hillary Clinton and the Russia accusations. But even though Suffolk is an approved pollster they refuse to recognize the results because it was published with the Boston Globe.

In this Way the DNC has made it extremely easy for them to control who the people see and hear. How can we function in this way when establishment interests push out the voices of real Americans?

I have no delusions of Tulsi and Yang winning the nomination but hey anything is possible. In reality I just expected a fair shot to state your case and have your ideas heard. But everyday it seems like the crony democrat establishment is more interested in keeping the machine churning even if that means Sleepy Joe, Creepy Joe, as their choice.

Complicity of the press, the role of the Obama administration in perpetuating the Russia hoax, and the revelation of the coup

 Cache   
In PowerLine, Scott Johnson writes about
ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN, TAKE 2.

...Lee Smith is the author of The Plot Against the President: The True Story of How Congressman Devin Nunes Uncovered the Biggest Political Scandal in US History.

...Lee Smith is a great journalist. This bears on one of the book’s principal themes: the complicity of the press in peddling the hoax alleging the collusion of the Trump campaign with organs of the Russian government. In peddling the hoax, the most prominent organs of the mainstream media were the accomplices of the perpetrators. The book cites the relevant stories and relentlessly names names demonstrating the “collusion” of the press with the Clinton campaign and the government — the FBI, the CIA, the Department of Justice — in peddling the Russian hoax as news.

Within the profession, there has been no reckoning for the misconduct that the book makes out. On the contrary, at the profession’s upper reaches, we have seen only the renewed commitment to carry on the campaign to remove Trump from office. This book may be the closest we ever get to the day of reckoning that is due the press.

...A second theme of the book is the role of the Obama administration in perpetrating the Russia hoax. Following the 2016 election, the Russia hoax involved the orchestrated disempowerment of the incoming administration and the removal of Trump from office. While the press held itself out as pursuing Trump in a scandal with echoes of Watergate, the scandal represented the handiwork of the Obama administration and the press served as its handmaiden. Referring to the method of operation pioneered by Obama to support the Iran deal, Smith puts it this way: “[I]t was Obama who was most like Nixon, because Trump’s predecessor used the resources of the federal government, sensitive surveillance program and staff, to spy on his opponents.”

Smith writes: “The coup started almost immediately after the polls closed.” The ground had been well laid by then.

A third theme of the book is the revelation of the coup. This gives the book its subtitle: “The True Story of How Congressman Devin Nunes Uncovered the Biggest Political Scandal in US History.” The book reminds us that much of what we know about the Russia hoax is attributable to the work of Devin Nunes, and it reports how Nunes has paid the price. I have embedded a copy of the Nunes memo released on February 2018 at the bottom of this post. For much of what we have learned to date we owe Rep. Nunes a debt of gratitude.

The book implicitly raises the question who wrote the Steele Dossier. Smith seems to doubt that it was Christopher Steele. He notes that in an October 2016 meeting with Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec — reported here by John Solomon — Steele forgot his lines. Whodunnit may be less important in this case than that it was done by those working on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party. For our knowledge of that critical fact we have Devin Nunes to thank.

In calling out his professional colleagues for the wrongs they have done and for giving credit where credit is due to Devin Nunes and his staff, this book administers justice to the extent that it is possible for a reporter and analyst to do so. We can only hope that it is a preface to the administration of justice the old-fashioned way.

The latest from the dragon

 Cache   
In the Gatestone Institute, Gordan Chang reports,
On January 1, China's Cryptography Law becomes effective. The legislation follows the December 1 implementation of the Multi-Level Protection Scheme 2.0, issued under the authority of the 2016 Cybersecurity Law.

Together, these measures show Beijing's absolute determination to seize from foreign companies all their communications, data, and other information stored in electronic form in China.

"Once data crosses the Chinese border on a network," writes Steve Dickinson in the China Law Blog, "100 percent of that data will be 100 percent available to the Chinese government and the CCP."

Beijing's complete visibility into the networks of foreign companies will have extremely disadvantageous consequences, Dickinson notes. First, Chinese officials will be permitted, under Chinese law, to share seized information with state enterprises. This means the enterprises will be able to use that information against their foreign competitors.

Second, China's new rules will almost certainly result in foreign companies losing trade secret protection around the world. A trade secret loses its status as such when it is widely disclosed. Once a company allows such a secret to be carried on its Chinese network, the company has to assume Beijing will know it. "Since no company can reasonably assume its trade secrets will remain secret once transmitted into China over a Chinese controlled network, they are at great risk of having their trade secret protections outside China evaporating as well," writes Dickinson.

Third, China's cybersecurity program exposes companies to penalties for violating U.S. tech-export legislation. Businesses have assumed that technology covered by U.S. export prohibitions is not "exported" if it is kept on a Chinese network protected by end-to-end encryption, in other words, not available to Chinese authorities. Because companies will no longer be permitted to encrypt data end-to-end, they will almost certainly be considered as violating U.S. rules for tech stored on a network in China.

Not every analyst is alarmed by China's December 1 measures. James Andrew Lewis, for instance, maintains that Beijing's new rules are a "legitimate effort" to secure networks in China. Moreover, he argues the Chinese do not need the new MLPS 2.0 rules to grab information because they can just steal all they want with their advanced "APT" hacker groups. "Their intent is not to use it for malicious purposes," Lewis argues, referring to Chinese officials.

It is not clear how Lewis, a tech expert at the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Strategic and International Studies, can know the intent of China's officials. Furthermore, portraying that intent as benign seems naive—laughable even—while their country is stealing hundreds of billions of dollars of American intellectual property each year and while Chinese ruler Xi Jinping continues his determined attacks on foreign business. In these circumstances, we have to assume Chinese officials are acting with malign intent.

Lewis also downplays the basic point that China's cyber spies, once they have the encryption keys and access to the China network of a foreign firm, will be in a better position to penetrate the networks of that firm outside China. Therefore, it will only be a matter of time before Beijing steals data and puts companies out of business or ruins them to the point where Chinese entities can swoop in and buy them up cheap. Many allege that China stole data from Canada's Nortel Networks and thereby bankrupted it almost a decade ago. The company was, according to the Financial Post, "hacked to pieces."

Finally, CSIS's Lewis fails to recognize that Beijing's December 1 rules generally legitimize China's regulation and information-custody role--in other words, China's theft.

Senator Josh Hawley is rightly more suspicious of Beijing's intentions. In November, the Missouri Republican introduced a bill, the National Security and Data Protection Act of 2019, prohibiting American companies from storing user data or encryption keys in China. Of course, this bill faces opposition from tech companies doing business in that country.

Yet, there is someone who can, with the stroke of a pen, effectively implement Hawley's bill. President Donald John Trump can use his broad powers under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act of 1977 to prohibit companies from complying with the pernicious new rules or from storing data in China.

The rationale for such a sweeping presidential order is that the American people have an interest in China not taking control of American companies with operations in China--a probable consequence of the application of the December 1 and January 1 measures.

Such an emergency order would effectively force American companies out of China, so this step would be drastic. Yet it is China, with its incredibly ambitious grab of data, that is forcing the issue.

The American people have a vital interest in the protection of American data. Trump should issue such an order immediately.

Trump's team: "No evidence this photo was doctored!"

The Post tweeted on Wednesday that it was "unclear why" the commander-in-chief had published the "doctored photo," and reported that the image appeared to come from the film Rocky III's "promotional materials."

Donald Trump's re-election campaign has claimed--perhaps with tongue in cheek-- that there is no evidence a picture of the president with the body of Rocky Balboa was doctored.

Team Trump accused The Washington Post of reporting that the image was doctored "without evidence" in a tweet Wednesday, shortly after President Trump shared the meme of himself as fictional boxing champion Rocky on the platform.

Este lunes 25 de noviembre, colectivos y organizaciones feministas se movilizaron por varios puntos de Caracas y marcharon hasta la sede del Tribunal Supremo de Justicia, para exigir cambios en el Estado y en la sociedad en general que logren acabar con los femicidios y la violencia de género, en el marco del Día Internacional de la Eliminación de la Violencia contra la Mujer.

«En revolución queremos que de respuesta la institución», fue uno de los lemas que militantes de En Tinta Violeta, La Araña Feminista y otros colectivos, quienes marcharon desde la Plaza El Venezolano, la plaza Bolívar y otros puntos del casco histórico caraqueño, según reseñó la televisora Alba TV en su cuenta Twitter.

Los colectivos feministas denunciaron 135 femicidios en lo que va del año 2019 y llaman al Poder Judicial a revisar los procedimientos que hacen posible la aplicación de las leyes que garantizan los derechos de las mujeres.

Eel documento leído por las feministas en la Plaza Bolívar de Caracas dice en parte: «Hoy, a las mujeres víctimas de violencia, en la práctica, no se les permite denunciar violencia psicológica, acoso y hostigamiento, violencia patrimonial, violencia obstétrica o violencia institucional, debido esencialmente a que no se exige a funcionarias y funcionarios que garanticen la aplicación de la Ley Orgánica sobre el Derecho de las Mujeres a una Vida Libre de Violencia. Un porcentaje considerable de mujeres viven en constante zozobra porque las investigaciones pertinentes a sus casos no concluyen, ocurren pérdidas de evidencias en las cadenas de custodia; sus casos son sobreseídos o pasan a archivo judicial por falla del sistema en sus procedimientos».

«Queremos que se le dé cursos, formación y sensibilización en género, porque hasta ahora no estamos viendo esa respuesta en los jueces y las juezas», fue otra de las peticiones hechas a las autoridades judiciales.

Además, exigen la publicación de cifras concretas, pues muchos de los datos que han publicado los han obtenido a través de medios digitales y fuentes no oficiales, lo que dificulta la lucha contra la violencia de género. «No se pueden hacer políticas públicas para el tema de la violencia si no hay cifras», explicó una de las manifestantes. «Entendemos que, ciertamente, en unas condiciones de guerra económica, aumenta el tema de la violencia hacia las mujeres por parte de los hombres. Los hombres, al sentirse vulnerados por las condiciones, la arremeten contra nosotros y contra los niños, niñas y adolescentes».

Por su parte, la activista Diana Scheifes, entrevistada por Alba TV, manifestó que denuncian todo tipo de violencia machista y patriarcal que sufren las mujeres: «desde los feminidios explícitos en los que nos mataron por ser mujeres, pero también morimos por la violencia obstétrica, que es muy común en los hospitales; también vamos muriendo psicológicamente poco a poco con el acoso callejero, con la violencia sexual, con la maternidad obligada, con la violencia simbólica. Estamos denunciando los 21 tipos de violencia que salen obligados en nuestra ley, exigiéndole al Estado que cumpla su papel, para que realmente nos protejan, no por ser débiles, sino por ser personas de derecho».

La movilización continuó hasta el Tribunal Supremo de Justicia, donde fueron recibidos por el Presidente del máximo organismo judicial, Maikel Moreno, quien recibió el pliego de peticiones, señaló que los revisará y la semana que viene, tras comunicarse con las voceras de la marcha, «nos sentaremos con la Magistrada Presidenta de la Comisión de Género y mi persona, y revisamos los casos en los que ustedes dicen que hay retraso procesal para darle celeridad».

«Todo funcionario público debe recibir las denuncias de maltrato de mujeres. ¡Todos!», enfatizó Moreno.

En un acto separado, durante el II Foro Internacional de Género y Justicia que también se realizó este lunes en la sede del alto tribunal en Caracas, el magistrado Moreno sostuvo que el Estado venezolano ha tenido un importante progreso en el área de derechos de la Mujer, en parte por la creación de la jurisdicción especializada, «integrada por tribunales con competencia en Delitos Contra la Mujer en todo nuestro extenso territorio nacional y con el trabajo arduo que imprime la Comisión de Justicia de Género, en pro de la erradicación de este flagelo, mediante la sanción penal de quien sea declarado responsable luego de un debido proceso de ley», dijo.

El magistrado indicó que, a través de la Comisión de Justicia de Género, se adelanta un “arduo trabajo” en pro de erradicar la agresión contras las féminas y protegerlas, principalmente con la aplicación de las sanciones que establecen las leyes.
