          Sen. Tom Cotton: Democrats' Opposition To Kavanaugh A "Laughable Political Game"       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
On Tuesday's 'Hugh Hewitt Show', Sen. Tom Cotton reacted to Senate Democratic opposition to Brett Kavanaugh's SCOTUS noinations, callign their concerns a "somewhat laughable political game." HUGH HEWITT: So tell me about your reaction last night when Brett Kavanaugh, the President probably called you beforehand, but what was your reaction? SEN. TOM COTTON: The President did throughout this process what he promised to do on the campaign trail, what he did in his first opportunity to nominate a Supreme Court justice, is work from a list that he gave to the American people in advance of very distinguished jurists of all stripes. He selected Judge Kavanaugh who has a long and very impressive record from the D.C. Circuit, and before that as a very capable appellate lawyer in Washington, D.C. I've got now a stack of opinions on my desk that I'll be reading through, which is one of the reasons why I left the law and became a soldier, but it's part of the job. And then I'll look forward to meeting with Judge Kavanaugh very soon. HEWITT: Now there is a story this morning that this was prearranged, a deal that was made with Justice Kennedy to entice him to retire, that it would be Judge Kavanaugh. I don't know if it's true. It's widely reported. If it is true, does that change your assessment of this? COTTON: Hugh, no, that's the first I've heard of such a deal. And I'll evaluate this nomination on its merits, on Judge Kavanaugh's record and his character and his jurisprudence. Justice Kennedy served our country for a very long time, and we should thank him for that service. But he's going to take senior status now, and what we have to do as senators is evaluate Judge Kavanaugh's record, and Judge Kavanaugh's jurisprudence when we vote on his nomination. The relationship between the President and Justice Kennedy, in my opinion, is really not relevant to that consideration. HEWITT: And I want to urge everyone to consult history. Often, justices talk to the White House about when they're going to leave, so that's not a scandal. I talked earlier with Todd Young, with Raj Shah, Senator Cotton, about the Kavanaugh papers at the Bush White House library, the Bush library down in Texas, and about the Independent Counsel papers, urging rapid disclosure, because they will eventually come out, those that are not classified. Those that are classified will end up in a SCIF for senators to review. Do you agree with me, or do you think that there's any doubt that those papers have to be produced? COTTON: Well, I have no doubt that the Senate will receive the documents we need to consider Judge Kavanaugh's nomination. In fact, George W. Bush just committed to President Trump already that his library and archives would work in an efficient manner to make sure that all documents are produced, and to the extent that there are any privileges or classification issues, they work in a cooperative manner to try to get senators the information they need. Now that said, we certainly can't let the Democrats slow roll this nomination, making endless and needless requests for documents in which Judge Kavanaugh played no part. For three years, Judge Kavanaugh was President Bush's staff secretary. That's the person who controls the flow of papers in and out of the West Wing. It's a very important role, but that doesn't mean that he wrote hundreds of thousands or millions of pieces of paper that crossed the President's desk. And we shouldn't let the Democrats use the facts like that to draw out needlessly the meetings and then the hearings that we'll have on Judge Kavanaugh's nomination. I expect they'll do that. The Democrats in the Senate have kind of gone around the bend already on Judge Kavanaugh's nomination if you look at some of the extreme rhetoric, or my favorite part was some of the senators standing out in front of the Supreme Court last night protesting the nomination. And you could see in the background they had signs premade not just for stopping Kavanaugh, but stop Barrett and stop Hardiman and stop Kethledge as well. So it's clear they're just playing a somewhat laughable political game, and they would have opposed for partisan reasons anyone that President Trump nominated.
          Schumer: Judge Kavanaugh Has Argued The State Can Detain A Young Girl To Prevent Her From Having Abortion       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) calls for the Senate put a stop to the nomination of Donald Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who Schumer says will "strip women's reproductive rights," undermine the Affordable Care Act, and curb environmental regulations. "Judge Kavanaugh's own writings make clear that he would rule against reproductive rights and freedoms," Schumer said. "He wouldn't have been approved by the Federalist Society if Leonard Leo weren't certain that he'd repeal Roe v. Wade." "Judge Kavanaugh has argued that the Trump administration could keep a young girl in federal custody to prevent her from obtaining constitutionally protected health care. And he has argued that employers should be able to deny their employees access to affordable contraceptive coverage. If Judge Kavanaugh feels that way about contraceptive rights, imagine how he feels on a woman's right to choose." SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER: Now, Madam President, last night, President Trump selected Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for the upcoming vacancy on the Supreme Court. In selecting Judge Kavanaugh, President Trump did exactly what he said he would do on the campaign trail -- nominate someone who will overturn women's reproductive rights and freedoms and strike down health care protections for millions of Americans, including those with pre-existing conditions. He's put at risk civil rights, labor rights, environmental rights, and LGBTQ rights. How do we know? Because President Trump repeatedly promised to nominate justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade, and who will undermine our health care laws. This didn't come out of the clear blue. President Trump promised it. Here's what he said: he would only pick "pro-life" judges who would "automatically" reverse Roe v. Wade. President Trump actually went so far as to say that women should be "punished" for their health care choices. President Trump also said quote his "judicial appointments would do the right thing, unlike Judge Roberts on health care." That is President Trump's litmus test, and it couldn't be clearer. And during the campaign, President Trump commissioned a list of 25 people who would meet that litmus test, that were vetted and approved by two organizations that represent the hard-right: the Federalist Society -- led by a man named Leonard Leo, whose goal in life has been to overturn Roe v. Wade -- and the Heritage Foundation, whose goal is to strike down health care law because they don't want the government to help people out when they have pre-existing conditions, or other health care needs. Here's what Edward Whelan, a prominent conservative activist, said about Leonard Leo, the man who put together the list that Trump promised to pick from: "no one has been more dedicated to the enterprise of building a Supreme Court that will overturn Roe v. Wade than the Federalist Society's Leonard Leo." If anyone believes that Judge Kavanaugh or anyone else on the list would uphold Roe v. Wade, then I have a bridge to sell them. Leonard Leo's goal in life is to repeal Roe. He comes up with the list, do you think he put any slackers, in his opinion, on that list? No. Judge Kavanaugh got the nomination, not because he'll be an impartial judge on behalf of all Americans, but because he passed President Trump's litmus tests: repeal women's freedom for their reproductive rights, and repeal people's health care, including the protections for pre-existing conditions. If Judge Kavanaugh was to be confirmed, women's reproductive rights would be in the hands of five men on the Supreme Court. That's not what the women -- or the men -- of America want. Judge Kavanaugh's own writings make clear that he would rule against reproductive rights and freedoms, and that he would welcome challenges to the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act. Judge Kavanaugh has argued that the Supreme Court should question the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act. He openly criticized the Supreme Court when they upheld the law. He's no neutral arbiter, he's already made up his mind, and he wouldn't have been approved by the Heritage Foundation if they weren't certain that he'd repeal the ACA. He wouldn't have been approved by the Federalist Society if Leonard Leo weren't certain that he'd repeal Roe v. Wade. Judge Kavanaugh has argued that the Trump administration could keep a young girl in federal custody to prevent her from obtaining constitutionally protected health care. And he has argued that employers should be able to deny their employees access to affordable contraceptive coverage. If Judge Kavanaugh feels that way about contraceptive rights, imagine how he feels on a woman's right to choose. And I'd make one other point about Judge Kavanaugh: he's a deeply, deeply conservative justice, way out of the mainstream. He has written troubling decisions rejecting something ninety percent of Americans want: common-sense gun laws. He has undone environmental protections, he's challenged them, and our Clean Air and Clean Water Acts would be at risk. He would make it far more difficult for regulations to exist to enforce those laws. And here's the most amazing thing: he has gone so far as to say that a president doesn't need to follow the law if he "deems" it unconstitutional. Folks, here we have a president, President Trump, who cares less about rule of law, less about the restraints that every other president has felt put in place by the Constitution and the norms that have blessed this great country for 200 years, and we're going to put someone on the bench that says 'if this president, President Trump, deems some law unconstitutional he doesn't have to follow it? How many Americans think that the president would be judicious and limited in doing that? It's not the president I've seen over the past year and a half, oh no. An analysis by Professor Lee Epstein of Washington University of St. Louis found that Judge Kavanaugh would be the second-most conservative Justice on the Court -- to the right of Judge Gorsuch, second only to Justice Thomas, and this is the most conservative court we've had in eighty, ninety years, since the thirties at the very minimum. To those who say that President Trump has made a moderate selection from the judicial mainstream in the form of Judge Kavanaugh -- think again, and look at his record. He is a deeply conservative jurist. And his judicial philosophy appears to spring from his history. Judge Kavanaugh was embedded in the partisan fights of the past few decades: the notorious Starr report, the Florida recount, President Bush's secrecy and privilege claims once in office, and ideological judicial nomination fights throughout the Bush Era. The hard-right has had a goal. They can't achieve their philosophy through the elected two branches of government, try as they might: the Congress, the president. But if they get control of the one non-elected branch, the judiciary, they can turn the clock back in America decades, maybe centuries. That has been their goal, and Judge Kavanaugh when he worked in the White House helped them achieve that goal. Judge Kavanaugh's background as a partisan political operative seems exactly like the kind of man President Trump would want on the Supreme Court if legal issues from the Mueller probe arise: deferential to a fault to executive authority, and with a long track record of partisan politics. Judge Kavanaugh's long track record of partisan politics comes with a long paper trail. The Senate must now be able to have access and time to adequately review all documents, e-mails, and other paperwork associated with Judge Kavanaugh before the process moves forward. Judge Kavanaugh's papers may be critical to helping the American people understand the kind of jurist that Judge Kavanaugh would be on the Supreme Court. And if that makes us take a little more time, so be it. As the president himself has said, this is one of the most consequential nominations we have had in a generation. To get the full record before any of us vote is absolutely necessary, important, essential, and fair. Judge Kavanaugh's papers may give the Senate the best and only chance of understanding Judge Kavanaugh's personal views because there's no doubt he will be schooled, as his most recent predecessor was, to reveal as little about his philosophy and personal views in his confirmation hearing. No doubt he will employ practiced evasions that have become a farcical tradition of the nomination process: "I will respect precedent"; "I will follow settled law and strive to uphold stare decisis"; "Gee Senator, I cannot comment lest I bias myself on a future case." Well, we have seen what happened when now-Justice Roberts, now-Justice Gorsuch, and now-Justice Alito had said that. Once they got on the bench, they overturned precedent with alacrity to achieve their political goals. Probably the worst: Citizens United, where Chief Justice Roberts undid close to a century of tradition, and allowed wealthy people to send millions of dollars, undisclosed, into our politics, making the swamp so much worse. And most recently, Justice Gorsuch, Justice Roberts, and the rest dramatically overturning precedent in the Janus case, on a whim. As the dissent noted, they just pulled a theory out of the hat, a First Amendment ruling that the First Amendment prohibited unions from organizing. My oh my, how can anyone believe that Judge Kavanaugh will stick to precedent when Justice Roberts, Justice Gorsuch, and Justice Alito ignore precedent, and make their own political rulings regularly. So we need to review the record: Judge Kavanaugh's written history, where the best clues to his jurisprudence may lie. It is no less than the standard my Republican colleagues demanded of Justice Kagan during her confirmation process. They asked for her entire records, a hundred seventy thousand documents were sent here. We need those documents, now more than ever because this new justice will be so pivotal in determining the future of our nation for so long. Madam President, the Senate has come together on a bipartisan basis to protect women's reproductive rights and to protect health care for millions of Americans before -- including those with preexisting conditions. We need to do it again. I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh's nomination, and I hope a bipartisan majority will ultimately do the same. This nomination could alter the balance of the court in favor of powerful special interests and against working families for a generation. The pro-hard-right business Heritage Foundation wants only nominees that will side with the big boys against the average person, and in Judge Kavanaugh they've gotten someone who will do just that. We cannot let that happen. If the Senate blocks this nomination, it will lead to a more independent, moderate selection that both parties could support.

          Santorum: Trump "Bowed To The Elite In Washington" With Kavanaugh Nomination       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Penn.) told CNN's Chris Cuomo that President Donald Trump "bowed to the elite in Washington" by picking Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee. Santorum supported Third Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Thomas Hardiman, also a Bush nominee, for the nomination. "Donald Trump said he was going to energize the base with this pick. I don't think he did that. I think a lot of the folks in the base were really turned off to Brett Kavanaugh," he said. "He is from Washington. He is the establishment pick. He was the Bush pick," the former Senator lamented. Santorum also said the nomination of Kavanaugh won't excite people and will actually "rub a lot of people the wrong way." "It just seems like Trump bowed to the elite in Washington, and I think that's going to rub a lot of people the wrong way," he said Monday night. "I don't think it's going to be a game changer, but I think it's not a 'Yeah, let's go get 'em!' moment for Trump."

          Luiz Carlos Azedo: A politização da Justiça      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
- Correio Braziliense

O caso Lula pôs a crise ética no colo do Supremo Tribunal Federal, que está como homem da caverna de Platão

As fortes ligações dos membros das cortes superiores e tribunais de justiça com políticos não são nenhuma novidade, o fato novo é a punição dos políticos pelos juízes e tribunais, entre os quais o ex-presidente Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT), condenado a 12 anos e um mês de prisão em regime fechado. É o primeiro caso de um presidente da República levado à prisão no Brasil. Isso não aconteceu na Revolução de 1930 nem no golpe militar de 1964. Os ex-presidentes Washington Luiz e João Goulart, depostos, foram para o exílio. Poderiam ter sido presos, se Getúlio Vargas e Castelo Branco quisessem fazê-lo.

Após a redemocratização, o ex-presidente Fernando Collor de Mello, que renunciou ao sofrer um processo de impeachment, não foi preso. Respondeu a processo em liberdade e acabou absolvido, sem passar pelas instâncias de primeiro e segundo grau. A ex-presidente Dilma Rousseff, deposta no impeachment, nem os direitos políticos perdeu. Todos os ex-presidentes vivos têm alguma influência nos tribunais. Não tem fundamento constitucional a narrativa do PT de que Lula é um preso político, de que sua prisão é uma perseguição dos “jacobinos de toga”. Lula está preso porque recebeu vantagens indevidas no exercício do cargo e isso é crime comum. Foi condenado em duas instâncias e estará fora da disputa eleitoral por causa da Lei da Ficha Limpa. Os fatos jurídico-políticos são esses, o resto é discurso eleitoral e muita luta pelo poder.

É nesse contexto que os fatos de domingo passado, envolvendo o desembargador Rogério Favreto, do Tribunal Regional Federal da 4ª Região (TRF-4), que mandou soltar Lula, e os juízes naturais do caso do tríplex de Guarujá, o juiz federal Sérgio Moro, da 13ª Vara Federal, de Curitiba, responsável pela execução da pena, o desembargador João Pedro Gebran Neto, relator do caso, e o presidente do Tribunal Regional Federal da 4ª Região, com sede em Porto Alegre, desembargador Trompson Flores, que mantiveram a prisão, precisam ser analisados.

A luta política chegou à Lava-Jato em todas as instâncias. Num país de dimensões continentais, que somente veio a completar sua revolução burguesa na década de 1930, mesmo considerando-se o importante papel do Exército brasileiro e da diplomacia na preservação da integridade territorial e consolidação de nossas fronteiras, seria inimaginável a construção do Estado nacional sem a existência de uma Justiça capaz de se fazer presente em todas as cidades. No período colonial, a Justiça local era exercida por cidadãos designados pelas Câmaras Municipais eleitas; com a chegada da Corte portuguesa, essa estrutura não mudou muito; depois da Independência, o sistema passou a ser híbrido, com a nomeação dos juízes pelo imperador e a criação de juris formados por eleitores, que anualmente eram alistados para julgarem devassas e querelas em processo público e oral. Impossível não haver politização.

Caverna
A centralização e profissionalização da magistratura só veio em 1850, quando o impedor D. Pedro II, por decreto, estabeleceu que os juízes seriam nomeados por ele, entre bacharéis, após servirem como juiz municipal, de órfãos, ou promotor público. Os habilitados deveriam ser matriculados com base nas informações prestadas pelos presidentes de Província e pela documentação apresentada pelo requerente, o que garantiu o controle do Judiciário pelo Partido Conservador. Após a proclamação da República, com a Constituição de 1891, a grande mudança foi a realização de concursos: “A nomeação de juízes de direito será precedida de noviciado e concurso, e a dos substitutos, de noviciado”. Mesmo assim, somente no final do regime militar, em 14 de março de 1979, foi editada a Lei Complementar nº 35, instituindo a Lei Orgânica da Magistratura Nacional. Entre outras disposições, essa lei criou o Conselho Nacional da Magistratura, que foi extinto em 1998 por simples despacho de um ministro do Supremo Tribunal Federal (STF). Renasceu das cinzas, porém, com a Emenda Constitucional nº 45, de 8 de dezembro de 2004., recebendo a denominação de Conselho Nacional de Justiça. Antes mesmo de sua publicação, a emenda foi objeto de uma Ação Direta de Inconstitucionalidade (ADI 3367), proposta pela Associação dos Magistrados Brasileiros, mas o Supremo decidiu por maioria julgar improcedente a ação.

Há uma tensão permanente entre os magistrados de carreira e os desembargadores e ministros do chamado quinto constitucional, exacerbada pelo fato de que a composição do Judiciário, mesmo com os concursos, manteve características de casta privilegiada e corporativista. Para o cidadão comum, a Justiça gasta muito, produz pouco e fala uma língua que não se entende. Para os poderosos, os ritos do processo são mais importantes do que os fatos; com os miseráveis, ocorre exatamente o contrário. Com a Operação Lava-Jato, esse modus operandi estolou. O caso Lula pôs a crise ética no colo da Justiça brasileira, que está como homem da caverna de Platão: não sabe se permanece à luz do dia ou volta para a escuridão. Quem vai decidir é o Supremo Tribunal Federal (STF).

          Twitter's fake account purge drags stock lower      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
NEW YORK (AP) — It's no secret that Twitter has been purging fake and malicious accounts in an attempt to make its platform more welcoming for real people. But when a Washington Post report put an actual number on the effort — 70 million accounts deleted in May and June — the company's shares tumbled. Investors worried that the removals could put a dent in the company's reported user figures. As of the first three months of this year, Twitter had 336 million monthly users. The San Francisco-based company's stock plunged as much as 9 percent Monday before closing down $2.51, or 5.4 percent, at $44.14. But Twitter Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal says most of the removed accounts haven't been active for 30 days or more.

Brett Kavanaugh May Have A Jim Jordan Problem

It seems that newly-minted SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh likely has a Jim Jordan problem.

Reach back into your memory to December, 2017, when 9th Circuit Court Judge Alex Kozinski abruptly "retired" amid a cascade of accusations about how he harassed his clerks and others.

Kavanaugh clerked for Kozinski, and then served alongside him to screen clerks for Anthony Kennedy.

Heidi Bond, a former clerk of Kozinski's and now a romance novelist writing as Courtney Milan, wrote a wrenching first-person account of what it was like to work with him. In her account, she describes Kozinski pulling up pornographic photos and asking her opinion of them. But worse -- far worse -- than that was his constant abuse of power and bullying.

          Investigative Reporter Jack Gillum to Cover Tech for ProPublica      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ProPublica announced today that Jack Gillum is joining its staff as a senior reporter covering technology and the ways algorithms, big data and social media platforms impact civil rights. He starts on July 30.

Gillum comes to ProPublica from The Washington Post, where he was part of the investigative team for the past year digging into topics ranging from mismanaged taxpayer funds to troubled relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

Prior to the Post, Gillum was a reporter in the D.C. investigative unit at The Associated Press. During his six years there, he broke stories on the existence and location of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, as well as a secretive, U.S.-backed “Cuban Twitter” program that mined subscriber data for political purposes. He was also the recipient of the John L. Dougherty Award for exemplary work by an AP staff member under the age of 30.

Gillum began his career as a business reporter and database specialist at the Arizona Daily Star in Tucson, his hometown, covering technology and aerospace firms. Later as a database editor for USA Today, Gillum helped expose rampant cheating in D.C.’s public school system under then-chancellor Michelle Rhee for the paper’s “Testing the System” series, which won an Education Writers Association Award.

“Time and again, Jack has proven to be a formidable reporter with the tenacity and skill set to do some of the industry’s most ambitious journalism,” said ProPublica managing editor Robin Fields. “We’re confident he’ll be a great addition to our newsroom as we advance our coverage of technology and its impact on our lives.”

“Technology’s underlying moral and civil rights issues stand to be one of the most important stories of our time,” said Gillum. “I’m thrilled to be joining such a talented newsroom of investigative reporters and editors who have already begun exposing areas of algorithmic injustice.”

Potential Nominee Profile: Brett Kavanaugh

SCOTUSblog, June 2018

SCOTUSblog’s profile of Kavanaugh provides a comprehensive summary of the judge’s background, from his upbringing in the Washington area to his college and law school years at Yale to his prestigious positions in various parts of the federal government. As the profile notes, Kavanaugh was a law clerk for Kennedy, whom he has been nominated to replace. The piece offers a highlight reel of Kavanaugh’s time on the federal appeals court in Washington. Ultimately, the article concludes, Kavanaugh “brings a pragmatic approach to judging,” albeit with a serious conservative bent.

Brett Kavanaugh, a Conservative Stalwart in Political Fights and on the Bench

New York Times, July 2018

The New York Times’ Adam Liptak examines Kavanaugh’s personal and professional history. The profile depicts Kavanaugh as a decidedly conservative Washington insider but hardly a rank partisan. He’s known as a nuanced and careful thinker, and although his judicial opinions are often lauded by voices on the right, he has shied away from absolutist positions, at times to the chagrin of conservatives. He has “formed lifelong friendships with liberals, many of whom praise his intellect and civility,” and those who worked with him before he became a judge described him as “often a moderating force.”

Kavanaugh Paper Chase Threatens to Draw Out Confirmation Battle

Politico, July 2018

Kavanaugh’s nomination “presents a band of government archivists and White House officials with a herculean task: wading through what could be millions of pages of records” ahead of his confirmation hearings. The paper trail leads back to the two years Kavanaugh spent in Bush’s White House Counsel’s Office and another three years he spent as Bush’s staff secretary. Politico’s Josh Gerstein takes a look at how the extensive documentation of Kavanaugh’s executive branch career could slow the judge’s confirmation process.

Trump’s Supreme Court Frontrunner Is the “Forrest Gump of Republican Politics”

Mother Jones, June 2018

This Mother Jones profile casts Kavanaugh as a consummate insider of the D.C. conservative establishment who “frequently inserted himself into high-profile political battles.” Kavanaugh worked on the team of Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel who investigated President Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky. He represented the Miami relatives of Elian Gonzalez in a high-profile immigration dispute in 2000, in which they sought to keep the Cuban boy in the United States. He worked on George W. Bush’s legal team during the contentious 2000 presidential election recount in Florida — and went on to oversee judicial nominations in Bush’s White House Counsel’s Office. His ubiquity earned him the nickname the “Forrest Gump of Republican politics.”

How Four Potential Nominees Would Change the Supreme Court

FiveThirtyEight, July 2018

FiveThirtyEight draws on a tool to measure judicial ideology developed by legal scholars and political scientists to assess Kavanaugh’s potential effect on the Supreme Court’s jurisprudential makeup. The conclusion: a Justice Kavanaugh “would likely represent a reliably conservative voice and vote on the high court”—“to the right of Gorsuch and Justice Samuel Alito, and just to the left of the arch conservative Justice Clarence Thomas.” That would leave Chief Justice John Roberts as the “new median justice.” FiveThirtyEight adds a caveat, however, about the metric it’s relying on: it’s based on the ideology of the politicians who nominated a judge—in this case, Bush—rather than the judge’s rulings.

Brett Kavanaugh, Supreme Court Front-Runner, Once Argued Broad Grounds for Impeachment

The New York Times, July 2018

The Times’ Mark Landler and Matt Apuzzo take a look at Kavanaugh’s time on Starr’s team — and its implications for Trump. Starr’s report as independent counsel, which Kavanaugh co-wrote, argues that lying to staff members and misleading the public are grounds to impeach a president for obstruction of justice. That “broad definition of obstruction of justice,” Landler and Apuzzo write, “would be damaging if applied to President Trump in the Russia investigation.”

Top Supreme Court Prospect Has Argued Presidents Should Not Be Distracted by Investigations and Lawsuits

The Washington Post, June 2018

The Washington Post examines a 2009 law review article in which Kavanaugh argued that a sitting president shouldn’t have to deal with “time-consuming and distracting” lawsuits and investigations. The distraction “would ill serve the public interest, especially in times of financial or national security crisis,” Kavanaugh wrote. That, the Post notes, “puts him on the record regarding a topic of intense interest to Trump — and could be a central focus of his confirmation hearing.”

Holding Court

The New Yorker, March 2012

In this comment, Jeffrey Toobin describes Kavanaugh as a judge in thrall to partisan politics. Toobin characterizes Kavanaugh’s work as an appeals judge as “startling.” He accuses Kavanaugh of “pandering to the base” in a dissenting opinion he wrote in a case challenging Obamacare. Kavanaugh “appeared to offer some advice to the Republicans who are challenging Obama in the election,” Toobin wrote — whatever courts hold, a Republican president could simply decline to enforce the health-care law because he deems it unconstitutional.

Leading Contender to Be Trump’s Supreme Court Pick Faces Questions from Social Conservatives

The Washington Post, July 2018

The Washington Post’s Robert Acosta and Josh Dawsey survey conservative misgivings about Kavanaugh’s record on the federal appeals court in Washington. Where Toobin saw Kavanaugh as a right-wing partisan, many social conservatives fear he’s not enough of a hardliner. The conservative response to the White House floating Kavanaugh’s name included “a clamor from those who see him as out of step on health care and abortion, or too tied to George W. Bush’s White House.” The concerns arise from opinions Kavanaugh wrote in cases challenging the Affordable Care Act and in a recent case over the right of an immigrant teenager in federal custody to have an abortion. The judge dissented in those cases, but did not go as far as “ideological purists” would have liked.

Federal Judge Downplayed Role in Detainee Cases

NPR, June 2007

NPR’s Ari Shapiro reported on what some Democratic senators saw as misleading testimony Kavanaugh provided during his 2006 confirmation hearing to become a federal appeals judge in Washington. Kavanaugh had told Sen. Richard Durbin, D.-Illinois, that during his time in the Bush White House he was not involved in conversations about the rules governing the handling of detainees captured in the War on Terror. In fact, he had been involved in 2002 discussions about whether detainees had a right to an attorney. Durbin told NPR he felt “perilously close to being lied to.” (Kavanaugh, through a court spokesman, called his testimony accurate.)

We are SO INSPIRED by the hundreds of thousands (yes! HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS) of people who rallied last weekend all over the country in support of immigrant children and families! Your voices are making a difference! We have already defeated two very bad immigration bills in the last few weeks because Congress heard the outraged voices of people like you!

This week we're continuing to speak out about immigration, and demanding Wells Fargo stop financing private prison corporations that are profiting off the pain and separation of families. We're also sharing important actions around gun safety and early learning.  

As always, please read, share, and flex those parent powers before enjoying your weekend. Thank you for all you do!  

1. Tell Wells Fargo - Stop Financing Pain For Corporate Gain! 

BACKGROUND: Let’s use our power as consumers to cut off the corporate money behind Trump’s unconscionable immigration policies! Private prison companies are not only making huge profits from the incarceration and detention of immigrants, they are also a huge political force in lobbying for the legislation and policies that criminalize immigrants and communities of color in the U.S. But private prisons are not the only ones making money here. Two of the private prison industry leaders, CoreCivic and GEO Group, depend on debt financing from Wells Fargo and other banks to conduct their day-to-day business operations, finance new facilities, and acquire smaller companies. This is a big deal. An analysis of U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings over the past 10 years, shows that Wells Fargo has played a leading role in financing these debts. As consumers, we have the power to stop this!  *Join us to tell Wells Fargo to STOP financing CoreCivic and GEO Group, private prison corporations that are profiting off the pain and separation of families. 

 

2. Stop the Opening of New Floodgates for Gun Sales! 

BACKGROUND: The NRA and gun manufacturers want guns everywhere, for everyone, not just here in the United States, but around the world. They are pushing hard for a rule change that would move the handling of export licenses of semiautomatic assault weapons and other powerful firearms from the U.S. State Department (focused on safeguarding our nation) to the U.S. Commerce Department (focused on promoting American business). This transfer of authority would open new floodgates for arms sales internationally, with serious implications for our national security. *Submit a comment now to the State Department and the Commerce Department through the link above. You can write in something like: “I oppose this rule change that would switch the regulations of firearms export from the U.S. State Department to the U.S. Commerce Department.” The public comment period for this rule change ends on July 9.

3. Speak Out: Imprisoning Kids With Parents is Still Imprisoning Kids!

BACKGROUND: President Trump’s June 20th Executive Action did not end the zero tolerance policy, and did not stop the continued detention of children--rather it allows for the detention of children with their parents, while also speeding up the process for deporting immigrant families applying for asylum. It is well-documented that family incarceration has serious negative consequences for the mental and physical health of children and families. Research has consistently shown that even a short amount of time in detention is harmful for children, compounding on trauma they have already experienced in their home country and on their journey. Children deserve to be with their families outside of cages and they deserve to have their rights protected! Get the latest information on how to stop family separation and detention on the MomsRising blog

 

4. Tell Congress: Families Need Affordable, High-Quality Child Care for All!

BACKGROUND: This week the New York Times released a new poll that is absolutely no surprise to us--one of the top reasons young adults aren't having children is the high cost of childcare. This is NOT good. The lack of steady population growth can negatively impact our economy with a declining workforce. Thankfully, a real solution to the childcare crisis is already here! The Child Care for Working Families Act if passed would help comprehensively address the struggles our families are facing every day to find high-quality, affordable childcare. Urge your representatives in Washington, D.C. to co-sponsor and support the Child Care for Working Families Act to expand access to affordable, high-quality early learning for all our children!

 

5. Share your #FamiliesBelongTogether Photo 

We are so awed and inspired by the amazing mobilizations against family separation and detention that took place across the country this past week. And we'd love to see your photos! Please take a moment to share your #FamiliesBelongTogether snapshots on social media (using that hashtag), and we'll be sure to give them some love! And check out photos on our Facebook page from events across the country. THANK YOU for helping us make some noise that cannot be ignored!

          Putin meet will be easiest stop on European tour: Trump      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Washington, July 11 (IANS) US President Donald Trump has said the July 16 meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in Helsinki could be the easiest stop on his European tour, during which he will also meet America's historic allies.

"So I have NATO, I have the UK, which is in somewhat turmoil, and I have Putin. Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of them all. Who would think? Who would think?" Trump said on Tuesday just before boarding the presidential aircraft Air Force One for his flight to Brussels, Efe news reported.

Trump arrives on Tuesday night in Brussels to take part in a two-day NATO summit before heading to the UK, and will wrap up his trip on July 16 when he meets with the Russian President in Helsinki.

Asked whether Putin is a friend or enemy, Trump replied the Russian President is "a competitor".

The meeting in Helsinki will be the first bilateral summit of the leaders of the two great powers, and will take place amid tensions between Moscow and Washington.

"I think that getting along with Russia, getting along with China, getting along with others is a good thing, not a bad thing," Trump added before leaving for Europe.

On his trip, Trump must strike a balance between promoting a thaw with Russia and not undermining relations with America's NATO allies, in an atmosphere of US-EU tension over trade.

He will also visit the UK at a time when the government of Prime Minister Theresa May faces another political crisis following the resignation of two of her principal ministers, both critics of her Brexit plan to negotiate a smooth withdrawal from the European Union.

In that regard, Trump spoke about one of the ministers who resigned, and who until this Monday was the UK's Foreign Minister, Boris Johnson, whom he called "a friend".

"Boris Johnson is a friend of mine. He's been very, very nice to me and very supportive. And maybe we'll speak to him when I get over there," he said.

"It's going to be an interesting time in the UK, and it's certainly going to be an interesting time with NATO. But we will work it out, and all countries will be happy," Trump said.

          Mỹ cấm China Mobile hoạt động vì lo ngại gián điệp       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

(PLO)- Sau khi cấm cửa công ty công nghệ Trung Quốc ZTE, chính quyền Trump đã chuyển sang ngăn chặn nhà mạng China Mobile của chính phủ Trung Quốc với lý do an ninh quốc gia.

Theo đó, China Mobile từ lâu đã muốn cung cấp điện thoại di động và các dịch vụ liên lạc giữa Mỹ và các quốc gia khác. Nhà mạng đã nộp đơn xin giấy phép cho các cơ quan quản lý của Mỹ vào năm 2011. Tuy nhiên, mới đây, Cục Viễn Thông và Thông tin Quốc gia, một nhánh của Bộ Thương mại Mỹ đề nghị Ủy ban Truyền thông Liên bang (FCC) từ chối yêu cầu.

Động thái ngăn chặn China Mobile hoạt động tại Mỹ được xem là đòn trả đũa sau khi Trung Quốc cấm tập đoàn sản xuất chip Micron của Mỹ bán sản phẩm tại quốc gia này. Cuộc chiến về công nghệ, thương mại giữa Washington và Bắc Kinh đang ngày càng trở nên căng thẳng khi ZTE, China Mobile, Huawei… đã được đem lên bàn cân.

Ủy ban Truyền thông Liên bang cho biết China Mobile chịu sự khai thác, ảnh hưởng và kiểm soát của chính phủ Trung Quốc, do đó việc cấp phép cho công ty này có thể sẽ tạo ra những rủi ro về an ninh,  rò rỉ các thông tin quan trọng khi người dùng hoặc cơ quan quản lý thực hiện cuộc gọi, liên lạc thông qua nhà mạng China Mobile. 

Hiện tại, nhà mạng China Mobile không đưa ra bình luận nào liên quan đến vấn đề trên. Sự từ chối của Mỹ dự kiến sẽ không tác động nhiều đến tình hình kinh doanh của công ty. Theo Ramakrishna Maruvada, nhà phân tích của Daiwa Capital Markets, doanh nghiệp gọi điện thoại quốc tế chỉ chiếm một phần nhỏ doanh thu của China Mobile.

Đề xuất chống lại China Mobile xuất hiện tại thời điểm căng thẳng về thương mại và an ninh quốc gia giữa Mỹ và Trung Quốc. Chính quyền Trump đang cố gắng chống lại tham vọng “made in China” của Trung Quốc, cáo buộc các công ty của nước này gây áp lực và ăn cắp tài sản trí tuệ để trở thành đầu tàu công nghệ trên thế giới, tuy nhiên, phía Bắc Kinh đã bác bỏ cáo buộc.

Trước đó, chính quyền Trump đã chặn nhà sản xuất chip Broadcom mua lại công ty Qualcomm với mức giá 117 tỉ USD. Việc này cũng không có gì khó hiểu bởi thỏa thuận mua bán có thể khiến Mỹ bị tụt lại trong công cuộc phát triển 5G. Không lâu sau, đến lượt ZTE bị Mỹ cấm vận trong vòng bảy năm vì đã cố tình bán thiết bị cho Iran và Triều Tiên.

Sau cuộc gặp gỡ giữa Tổng thống Donald Trump và Chủ tịch Tập Cận Bình, Mỹ đã đồng ý thu hồi lệnh cấm và đổi lấy một khoản tiền phạt. Tuy nhiên, ZTE vẫn phải đối mặt với tương lai đen tối vì một số thành viên Quốc hội đang tìm cách giữ nguyên lệnh cấm. 

Mới đây, công ty chế tạo vi mạch Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co (FJICC) thuộc sở hữu nhà nước Trung Quốc đã kiện công ty sản xuất chip Micron của Mỹ và yêu cầu ngừng bán hơn 12 loại ổ lưu trữ bán dẫn, thẻ nhớ và vi mạch tại Trung Quốc. Vụ việc xảy ra trong bối cảnh căng thẳng thương mại giữa Washington và Bắc Kinh với hàng tỉ USD tiền thuế sẽ có hiệu lực vào ngày 6-7. 

Theo đó, Micron là nhà cung cấp sản phẩm bán dẫn lớn thứ tư thế giới về doanh thu, chỉ đứng sau Samsung, SK Hynix (Hàn Quốc) và Intel (Mỹ) với hơn một nửa doanh thu thực trong năm 2017 đến từ thị trường Trung Quốc. Trung Quốc thành lập FJICC tháng 2-2016 nhằm chế tạo các vi mạch của riêng mình với khoản đầu tư 37 tỉ nhân dân tệ (tương đương 5,55 tỉ USD) để xây dựng dây chuyển sản xuất riêng mà không phụ thuộc vào các sản phẩm nhập khẩu.

Chính quyền Mỹ từ lâu đã cảnh giác cao với các công ty Trung Quốc có quyền truy cập vào mạng viễn thông của Mỹ. Một báo cáo hồi năm 2012 cho thấy ZTE và Huawei từng được xem là mối đe dọa an ninh quốc gia, dù không có bằng chứng rõ ràng như Mỹ vẫn hạn chế phần lớn các hoạt động kinh doanh của hai công ty này tại Mỹ.

          The Trump Administration's Human Cages Aren't New — They Have a Long and Shameful American History      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Our forebears once flocked in staggering numbers to “human zoos,” where thousands of kidnapped natives from various countries were displayed.

When Donald Trump recently accused “illegal immigrants” of wanting to “pour into and infest our country,” there was an immediate outcry. After all, that verb, infest, had been used by the Nazis as a way of dehumanizing Jews and communists as rats, vermin, or insects that needed to be eradicated.

Nobody, however, should have been surprised. The president has a long history of excoriating people of color as animal-like. In 1989, for instance, reacting to the rape of a white woman in New York’s Central Park, he took out full-page ads in four of the city’s major papers (total cost: $85,000) calling for the reinstatement of the death penalty and decrying “roving bands of wild criminals roaming our streets.” He was, of course, referring to the five black and Latino youngsters accused of that crime for which they were convicted -- and, 10 years late, exonerated when a serial rapist and murderer finally confessed.

Trump never apologized for his rush to judgment or his hate-filled opinions, which eventually became the template for his attacks on immigrants during the 2016 election campaign and for his presidency. He has declared many times that some people aren’t actually human beings at all but animals, pointing, in particular, to MS-13 gang members. At a rally in Tennessee at the end of May, he doubled down on this sort of invective, goading a frenzied crowd to enthusiastically shout that word -- “Animals!” -- back. In that way, he made those present accomplices to his bigotry. Nor are his insults and racial tirades mere rhetorical flourishes. They’ve had quite real consequences. It’s enough to look at the cages where undocumented children separated from their families at or near the U.S.-Mexico border have been held as if they were indeed animals -- reporters and others regularly described one of those detention areas as being like a “zoo” or a “kennel” -- not to mention their parents who are also trapped behind wire barriers, even if arousing far less attention and protest.

A History of Caged Humans

All the president’s furious contemporary rants and rallies, along with those cages and detainee centers, have certainly brought Nazism to mind for some, but it might be more illuminating to think of them as echoing an earlier moment in history when comparing dark-skinned humans to animals would hardly have caused a stir.  It would have been considered part of normal discourse, in both Europe and the United States.

Indeed, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, millions of Europeans and Americans considered it perfectly natural to treat certain members of our species quite literally as if they were beasts. They were unfazed, so the historical record suggests, by the idea of seeing such “animals,” such oddities, displayed in literal zoo cages at boisterous public events. It may now be hard to believe, but our forebears once flocked in staggering numbers to “human zoos,” where thousands of natives kidnapped from Asia, Africa, and Latin America were exposed to scrutiny, curiosity, and derision, as well as, sometimes, undergoing scientific experimentation.

Today, such mindboggling violations of human rights have almost entirely vanished from public memory. I had only vaguely heard of human zoos myself, before I became obsessed with them when research for my latest novel, Darwin’s Ghosts, led me into the world of human menageries. I discovered that the phenomenon had been launched in the most modest of ways.

One hundred and seventy years ago -- 1848, a year of revolutions across the globe -- a Hamburg fishmonger, Claus Hagenbeck, decided to charge customers to take a peek at some Arctic seals swimming in a large tub in the backyard of his house. Soon enough, that first timid entrepreneurial step developed into a highly lucrative family business exhibiting wild animals, while feeding growing demands for wondrous beasts to populate circuses and fill the private collections of monarchs and other wealthy individuals.

In the end, animals were not enough. By the early 1870s, in conjunction with the Jardin d’Acclimatation in Paris and American impresarios like P.T. Barnum, the Hagenbeck family started dabbling in displaying “savages” from the farthest corners of the planet. The first victims of this desire to bring exemplars from the rest of humanity to viewers in the West were Laplanders, displayed in a setting meant to look like one of their villages. (A similar urge gave birth to the dioramas that soon began to flourish at museums of natural history.)

That first exhibition in Hamburg of “the little men and women” of Lapland proved so sensational -- tours were organized to Berlin, Leipzig, and other German cities -- that the desire to see more “primitive” humans soon became insatiable. Scavengers who had previously specialized in locating and bringing African and Asian wildlife to Europe and the United States were now instructed to be on the lookout for similarly exotic human wildlife. They should not be, it was quickly stipulated, so monstrous as to disgust audiences, but neither should they be so beautiful as to cease to be bizarre.

The Laplanders were followed by a multitude of indigenous inhabitants of the planet forcibly removed from their habitats: Eskimos, Cingalese, Kalmuks, Somalis, Ethiopians, Bedouins, Nubians from the Upper Nile, aboriginal Australians, Zulu warriors, Mapuche Indians, Andaman Islanders from the South Pacific, head-hunters from Borneo. The list went on and on, as those human zoos spread from Germany to France, England, Belgium, Spain, Italy, and the United States, all of which -- what a coincidence! -- just happened to be the globe’s imperial powers of that era.

Representatives of ethnic groups from all over the planet soon became an expectable feature of then-popular World’s Fair pavilions. Besides providing entertainment for the whole family -- they might be thought of as that moment’s equivalents of reality TV shows -- those exhibitions were proclaimed “educational” experiences by the enterprises cashing in on them. Such tableaus of “prehistoric” people offered a way for affluent visitors to gawk at and be amazed by the bizarre habits of the bizarre inhabitants of the faraway lands that their countries were incorporating with great violence into “civilization” via colonial dominion. In fact, that violence was such that some of the native populations on display, like diverse groups of Patagons from Tierra del Fuego at the southern tip of Latin America, were already then on the verge of becoming extinct. One of the draws of seeing living specimens of those strange men, women, and children was to do so before their last remnants, along with their languages and their cultures, disappeared from the face of the Earth.

Even if you were among the millions of Americans and Europeans who couldn’t personally visit such folk displays, ethnic villages, and human zoos, you could still inexpensively and vicariously experience those exotic others. The images of the captives -- who, of course, had been photographed without their consent -- were commercialized on an industrial scale. The postcards upon which their faces and bodies were flaunted soon became an everyday feature of domestic life, one more way that the human zoo was normalized, whitewashed, and sent into the home with barely a thought about the horrors, the suffering being visited on those captives or how their children, husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, relatives, and friends, left behind, were dealing with the trauma of having their loved ones torn from their midst.

Nor were such acts repudiated by the most illustrious members of those “advanced” societies. Quite the opposite, many of the abductions had been financed by scientific institutions eager to discover how such specimens might fit into Darwin’s theory of evolution. Their research, in turn, was backed by government officials more than ready to show their respect and support for scholars looking into the origins of humanity. Were those Africans and South Americans entirely human or did they constitute missing links in the great chain of beings that became our species? Eminent naturalists and doctors debated just such matters, gave lectures on them, wrote treatises about them, and (in what then passed for scientific experimentation) poked at or into the bodies of those who had made the mistake of being born far from the so-called civilized world.

The Ota Bengas of Today

Today, of course, human zoos and the medical experiments on live human beings that went with them are inconceivable. The consciousness of humanity, enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the U.N. 70 years ago, has made such practices disgraceful and intolerable. Who today could stomach the fate of Ota Benga, a pygmy from the Congo who was housed with the primates at New York’s Bronx Zoo in 1906 and committed suicide a decade later when he realized that he would never be able to return to his native land? Who among us would bring their children to gape at “missing links” like Thai dwarfs, Amazonian Indians, or Sudanese villagers as if they were freaks of nature, not human beings?

Unfortunately, congratulations are not (yet) in order, given how often the same racist impulses resurface today, and not only in the president’s intemperate diatribes equating humans and animals (none of which have so far provoked indignation in most of his followers). A similar dehumanization of strangers with darker faces and skins appears to animate current anti-immigrant sentiments in many lands, a desire to escape “infestation” from abroad and maintain mythical versions of racial purity and national identity. Are we really that removed from the spectators who watched their fellow humans abused in zoo-like conditions a century or so ago without blinking or being disturbed?

In retrospect, what’s most sobering about the human zoos of an earlier time is how oblivious those who participated in such degrading spectacles were to the crimes being committed before their eyes. Many of them would have judged themselves decent, enlightened citizens, shining advocates of progress, science, and freedom. And yet, in Berlin in 1882, the police had to be called in to quell a riot by visitors to an exhibition of 11 Kaweshkar natives abducted from Tierra del Fuego. Thousands of customers, having imbibed copious gallons of beer, began to stone the hostages, demanding that they mate in public. Or consider the fate of two female Kaweshkar whose sexual organs, after they died in captivity, were carved from their dead bodies and sent to be examined by a prominent German researcher interested in discovering how such creatures might be distinct from European women.

So many decades later, it’s easy enough to condemn such offenses. More difficult and painful is to ask what injustices are happening now that we take to be as normal as human zoos (or the disempowerment of women and child slavery) were just a few generations ago. Is it the thoughtless annihilation of immeasurable species, the plundering of nature, the loss of wisdom stored for millennia by ethnic groups that are fast disappearing? Is it the punitive incarceration of millions, so many lives wasted? Is it our incredibly counterproductive “war on drugs” that unnecessarily ravages cities, nations, and lives? Or our inability to rid ourselves of the plague of nuclear proliferation, the brutality of widespread hunger, America’s endless wars, the detention centers for immigrants and their children in this country, the spectacle of undocumented minors shut up in cages and crying for their parents, or the overflowing refugee camps elsewhere in the world? And what of so many children displaced in their war-torn lands or incarcerated in poverty? Where is the indignation about them? Who marches to have them released from their structural captivity? And who even noticed the 10,000 children murdered or maimed in armed conflicts in 2017 alone, deaths invisible to us if you didn’t happen to catch a brief news item quickly forgotten?

In reality, those human zoos of the not-so-distant past pose a terrifying question for us: What everyday horrors of our world will our descendants look back on with disgust in the future? How, they will wonder, could their ancestors have been so blind as to condone such transgressions against humaneness and humanity?

          Life After Roe v. Wade: Here’s What a Post-Roe America Would Look Like      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Overturning Roe v. Wade would most definitely give individual states the right to outlaw abortion at the state level.

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts hit the nail on the head last night when—after learning that Judge Brett Kavanaugh would be President Donald Trump’s second nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court—she asserted, in an e-mail, “Make no mistake: Brett Kavanaugh was chosen because conservatives are confident that he would overturn Roe v. Wade.” Bingo.

There are many right-to-privacy Supreme Court decisions that the Christian Right would love to see overturned, from 1965’s Griswold v. Connecticut (which struck down a Connecticut law forbidding the sale or use of contraceptives among married couples) to 2003’s Lawrence v. Texas (which declared a Texas sodomy law unconstitutional and was a major victory for gay rights). And with Kavanaugh likely to be confirmed by U.S. Senate, it is quite possible that the High Court will overturn Roe v. Wade—the landmark Supreme Court ruling of 1973 that, in effect, legalized abortion nationwide.   

The end of Roe v. Wade would not automatically mean the end of legal abortion throughout the United States; in order for the Christian Right to achieve that goal, the overturning of Roe v. Wade would have to be followed by both houses of Congress—the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives—passing a nationwide abortion ban and President Trump signing it into law. Such a federal law would be needed to outlaw abortion in all 50 states, and as it stands now, some states have laws that explicitly protect abortion rights at the state level. Overturning Roe v. Wade would not invalidate those pro-choice state laws.

However, overturning Roe v. Wade would most definitely give individual states the right to outlaw abortion at the state level. And Kavanaugh, a severe social conservative with a “strict constructionist” view of jurisprudence, would likely argue—along with Clarence Thomas, Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch and other social conservatives on the High Court—that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided because it was a violation of states’ rights and that individual states should be able to decide whether they do or don’t want legal abortion.

So post-Roe v. Wade, it’s entirely possible that one would see abortion outlawed at the state level in Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Oklahoma, Kansas and Utah while remaining legal in New Jersey, California, Oregon, Massachusetts and Vermont. Some Republican-dominated states, including Louisiana and the Dakotas, have “trigger laws” that would automatically ban abortion statewide if Roe v. Wade were overturned. 

The Center for Reproductive Rights has published, on its website, an informative page called “What If Roe Fell?”—which offers a state-by-state analysis of where abortion likely would and wouldn’t be legal if Roe v. Wade were overturned. The Center breaks all 50 states down into three categories: a high risk of abortion being outlawed at the state level post-Roe, a low risk or a medium risk. And some of the swing states in presidential races—such as Pennsylvania and Colorado—fall into the medium risk category.

According to the Center’s post-Roe scenario, legal abortion “appears safe” in 20 states, is likely to be “banned outright” in 22 and faces a medium risk in the others. The end of Roe would likely make abortion a major litmus test for politicians at the state level, and given that the majority of Americans are pro-choice, it isn’t hard to imagine a lot of Republicans being voted out of office in swing states when horror stories over botched back-alley abortions started coming out of Texas, Kansas and Mississippi and voters blamed the GOP.

Pennsylvania, for example, could become a major abortion rights battleground in a post-Roe scenario. Philadelphia is a very Democrat-dominated city—Philly hasn’t had a Republican mayor since Bernard Samuel left office in January 1952, and Republicans are seldom elected to Philly’s city council—and Pittsburgh is very Democratic as well. But the center of Pennsylvania (where Trump benefitted from a high voter turnout in 2016) has a lot more Republicans, and if enough Republicans in Pennsylvania’s state legislature voted to outlaw abortion post-Roe, it’s quite possible that women living in Philly would be seeking abortions in New Jersey.  

Or, if abortion were outlawed in Arizona post-Roe but remained legal in California and Nevada, women living in Phoenix or Tucson might be seeking legal abortions in San Diego or Las Vegas—that is, if they had the funds to travel long distances. Low-income women would be hit especially hard by the end of Roe v. Wade, as they would have less money to travel from anti-choice states to pro-choice states. In many Latin American countries where abortion is illegal, it is poorer women who typically die from dangerous back-alley abortions—not unlike the U.S. before Roe v. Wade—while more affluent Mexican, Salvadoran or Guatemalan women seeking abortions can afford the airfare to Havana, Cuba, where abortion is legal.

Post-Roe, pro-choice activists—from Planned Parenthood, NARAL and the National Organization for Women (NOW) to Emily’s List—could do a lot of recruiting at the state level. The end of Roe v. Wade, if it comes about, could seriously galvanize pro-choice voters in individual states, especially if Kavanaugh and other social conservatives on the Supreme Court overturned Griswold v. Connecticut as well and allowed individual states to outlaw birth control.  

According to the Pew Research Center, almost seven in ten Americans—69%, to be exact—remain pro-choice and oppose overturning Roe v. Wade. But public opinion matters little to today’s overtly authoritarian Republican Party, which is why President Trump has shown so little humility despite the fact that he lost the popular vote to Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016. Authoritarians govern by force or coercion, not consensus. And if Roe v. Wade is overturned despite being broadly popular, abortion rights activists will need to be as vocal and proactive as possible at the state level.

          Where Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh stands on key issues      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
By Clare Foran and Joan Biskupic Washington (CNN) – President Donald Trump announced on Monday his decision to nominate Brett Kavanaugh to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Anthony Kennedy’s decision to retire. Kavanaugh, 53, currently serves as a judge on the powerful US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Here’s where he stands on some hot-button issues: Abortion Because he was a swing-vote in favor of abortion rights, Kennedy’s departure from the court has sparked alarm among abortion rights activists that Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion nationwide in 1973, could be overturned. In addition, Trump has long vowed to appoint justices who would reverse Roe and allow states to determine whether abortion should be legal. Kavanaugh has not expressed outright opposition to Roe v. Wade. One of his opinions likely to draw scrutiny from senators is a his dissent from a ruling of the DC Circuit last October that an undocumented immigrant teen in detention was entitled to seek an abortion.

          A third of Facebook’s ad revenue growth now comes from Instagram — and it couldn't come at a better time (FB)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

mark zuckerberg facebook

  • Morgan Stanley analysts think Wall Street is still underestimating how much Facebook can grow.
  • In a research note, analysts at the investment bank set the stock a new price target of $215.
  • It's an abrupt turnaround from just a few months ago, when Facebook's share price was getting pummeled in the aftermath of the Cambridge Analytica scandal. And it may be largely due to Instagram.

 

Facebook's reputation has been battered by the Cambridge Analytica scandal, but Facebook's business is humming. One big reason: Instagram. 

The photo-sharing app is turning into an increasingly important money-maker for Facebook.

According to the estimates of  Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak, Instagram will account for 36% of Facebook total ad revenue growth in the second quarter. In a research note published on Tuesday, Nowak reckons that ads on Instagram will bring in $3.8 billion in revenue in Q2, and as much as $4.5 billion in Q4. 

That's especially important as Facebook's flagship social media service continues to experience a slowdown in the growth of its "ad load" — the number of ads that Facebook inserts into the newsfeed. 

The ad load slowdown within Facebook is very deliberate; the company is wary of turning consumers off by barraging them with too many ads. Luckily, Facebook has Instagram and its relatively un-monetized fields of content to pick up the slack. 

 

instagram revenue

And whatever reputational damage Facebook's brand may be suffering, Instagram is more popular than ever with consumers.  The service recently crossed the 1 billion user milestone, and Morgan Stanley notes that the app's active user growth "inflected" in Q2, as Instagram added 750,000 users per day. 

The upshot: The investment bank is pegging its price target for Facebook's stock, which is currently floating around $203, at $215 — and suggests in a best-case scenario it could go as high as $245.

"We believe the Street is still underestimating FB's ability to grow even as ad load slows," Nowak writes. 

Facebook doesn't (yet) break out financial results for Instagram, so it's tough to know precisely how big of a contributor it is. But we'll get a sense about how it's doing by assessing the results of Facebook's overall business when it reports its Q2 earnings on July 25.

President Trump has nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court to fill the vacancy left by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

If confirmed, Trump's choice would solidify the high court's conservative majority and continue the president's push to shift the federal bench to the right.

Trump announced his choice with a prime-time address from the White House East Room. Since 2006, Kavanaugh has served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, often called the nation's second most powerful court. He was appointed to that post by President George W. Bush, after serving as Bush's White House staff secretary.

Kavanaugh graduated from Yale Law School and clerked for Kennedy in the mid-1990s. Kavanaugh later worked with independent counsel Kenneth Starr during the investigation of President Bill Clinton.

          Does Scott Pruitt's Slow Ouster Mean Ethics Laws Are Getting Weaker?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
By the time Scott Pruitt resigned, his conduct as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency had become the subject of 12 to 18 investigations, audits and inquiries. It's hard to know the precise number, as only some of the cases are public, but Pruitt may have set some kind of ethics-in-government record. Ethics advocates are asking how he stayed long enough to trigger that many probes. "I think we really do have a dysfunctional ethics system," Washington ethics lawyer Larry Noble told NPR. He said Pruitt was enabled by President Trump, who is committed to reining in the EPA but cares little about ethics. None of the cases involve Pruitt's policy decisions, which aim to halt or reverse many EPA programs. Rather, the problems lie in allegations that over many months, he misused federal funds and federal employees, had undisclosed and improper contacts with lobbyists, and retaliated against whistleblowers. Noble said Trump has mostly ignored the federal ethics system, which

          Narwhals Are Real, And They Could Be in Real Trouble      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
article-image

Narwhals are sometimes called the “unicorns of the sea.” Like their fictional equine counterparts, narwhals appear to have a horn or tusk—it actually functions more like a tooth—galloping straight out of their heads. Over the centuries, narwhals swam through the realm of folklore, figuring especially prominently in Inuit tales. They also float amid not-quite-truths: In the 16th century, naturalists depicted narwhals as something like razor-toothed alligators with saws erupting through their skulls. One described the whale as “a sea-monster that has in its brow a very large horn wherewith it can pierce and wreck vessels and destroy many men.”

Unlike unicorns, narwhals occupy space in the real world. The whales mostly congregate in Arctic waters around Greenland, Russia, and northern Canada, where they're known to dive nearly a mile deep, and surface for air in between fractured ice. But today, their landscape is changing.

In recent years, as their native waters have warmed and ice cover has shrunk, ship traffic has increased in the region. A handful of countries, including the United States, are “racing to put icebreakers into Arctic waters as rising temperatures uncover new shipping routes, resource deposits, and fishing areas,” as Scientific American reported. In one area where narwhals spend their summers, ship traffic surged by 300 percent between 2015 and 2016 alone.

Narwhals haven't been in dire straits—last year, the International Union for Conservation of Nature downgraded their status from "near threatened" to "least concern"—but shipping traffic could be bad news for these wondrous whales, according to a recent report published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Researchers from the University of Washington and the University of Alaska Fairbanks estimated how vulnerable 80 populations of marine animals are to ship traffic that passes through in September, the month when melted ice yields the most open water. More than half of these populations are exposed to ship traffic, the authors found, and narwhals most of all.

"Narwhals have all the traits that make them vulnerable to vessel disturbances—they stick to really specific areas, they're pretty inflexible in where they spend the summer, they live in only about a quarter of the Arctic, and they're smack dab in the middle of shipping routes," said study co-author Kristin Laidre, a polar scientist at the University of Washington’s Applied Physics Laboratory's Polar Science Center, in a statement. Since the whales communicate underwater, use sound to navigate, and are “notoriously skittish and sensitive to any kind of disturbance,” Laidre said, they’re also susceptible to being troubled by the noises emanating from ships.

The authors surmised that beluga whales, walruses, and other mammals that hug shipping routes are also vulnerable. Less so for polar bears and roving groups of seals. The researchers found that the risks were especially pronounced in narrow segments of shipping routes—so-called "geographic bottlenecks" such as Lancaster Sound, in Nunavut, and the Bering Strait.

Despite those centuries-old warnings, narwhals aren’t preying on ships, or ramming their crews. But, in a sense, the danger is flowing the other way—at least for now. The Bering Strait and other “pinch points” represent “potentially high conflict areas,” the authors wrote, “but also opportunities for conservation-informed planning” if researchers gather more data about these unusual whales' dark, deep world.

          Brett Kavanaugh Supported Broad Leeway For Presidents Under Investigation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Over a dozen years as a judge on the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., Brett Kavanaugh has weighed in on controversial cases involving guns, abortion, health care and religious liberty. But after Kavanaugh emerged on President Trump's shortlist for the Supreme Court, a suggestion the judge made in a 2009 law review article swiftly took center stage: "Provide sitting presidents with a temporary deferral of civil suits and of criminal prosecutions and investigations," Kavanaugh proposed. The judge emphasized that no one is above the law, but he pointed out that the Constitution already provides a solution if there's a scoundrel in the White House. "If the president does something dastardly, the impeachment process is available," he wrote. That matters now — especially to Democrats mulling whether to oppose Kavanaugh's nomination to the highest court in the nation — because Trump is facing a special counsel probe into Russian election interference in 2016 and whether anyone in

          Trump SCOTUS pick: Brett Kavanaugh      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Click here to view original web page at bradley1969.blogspot.comPresident Donald Trump made it official Monday evening by selecting a potential replacement for retiring U.S. Supreme Court justice Anthony Kennedy. President Trump on Monday selected Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, a politically connected member of Washington’s conservative legal establishment, to fill Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s seat on the Supreme Court, setting up an epic confirmation battle and potentially cementing the court’s rightward tilt for a generation. The nomination of Judge Kavanaugh, 53, a federal appeals court judge, former aide to President George W. Bush and onetime investigator of President Bill Clinton, was not a huge surprise, given his conservative record, elite credentials and deep ties among the Republican legal groups that have advanced conservatives for the federal bench. Given that Kavanaugh was rumored to be on a short list of the three most likely nominees, leftist groups no doubt had panicked prepared […]

Even in this upper Midwest burg of Minneapolis, the morning paper proclaimed the first eight electric buses are on order. What will be interesting, is to see how this changeover to electric buses will co-mingle with the driver-less people movers which we saw during last February's Super Bowl. Washington DC and New York City have also committed to a complete change over to electric buses. After being in the nation's capitol over 250 times on business […]

          1978 Family Letter -July 9      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Sunday evening –
July 9, 1978
Dearest Family –

I am sitting here typing in the patio as we moved the typewriter here to be a little cooler.  The weather was just too warm to try use the dining room this evening.  At least I can see a breeze blowing the leaves of the trees.  Mary Virginia has gone to Villars Chapel to hear some singing group with the Rankins.  Dad and I are talking about going for a bicycle ride.  We just finished supper – the last of some banana yogurt that we made when the Hortons were here (which was plenty soupy then for we waited too long for it to season but refreezing it seemed to help it).  Also had some honeydew melon – not as ripe and good as the previous one (it was a real buy for 39¢ and delicious).

We were glad to hear from all of you this past week – another record !!  It was good talking to Catherine and also getting the letter.  Before I forget I'd better say now that don't give up hope if you call and don't find anyone at home next Thursday evening as Dad is to work at the ball park and Mary Virginia and I usually end up over there and sometimes helping there too. We were happy to hear that Wendy had acquired her second tooth without too much difficulty and glad to hear that she adapts so well to camping life.

Really glad that you made the decision to stay in New Jersey and not rush back to Arizona, Roberta.  Mary Virginia really held her breath for if you had gone back that would have left her wondering what to do the middle of July.  She is happy to get to see Marion and I.T. since their visits coincide.  Too bad that you will have to make so many trips to the airports – MV is also wondering if you will have room for her in their old room since it is so small and you already have a roommate.

Glad that we were finally able to find you at home, Serena, and hope that things work out for you to get a fellowship or possibly a chance to go to Denver yet.  You must really have an IN with UMKC if you are staying at the home of the head of the program there.  We do hope that you will plan to come home between summer school and fall semester or quarter if you aren't doing else.

Your letters are spaced wide apart, John, but glad to hear of you thru Roberta's.  Sound like those new t-shirts are going well as well as other things in the canteen.  Too bad you weren't reached sooner by Bell's office or whoever it was that wanted a youth coordinator but wonder how you would find much time for all you do now.

We went down to Rocky Fork Restaurant for lunch today as Grandma had been wanting to go – had planned to go while the Hortons were here but it didn't work out.  They now have a buffet available on weekends which they called a smorgasbord but though the view is wonderful we didn't find the food nor the service too good not to elaborate but servings generous!!   Dr. Hull's Fun in the Sun was not open but the miniature golf available.  I don't know whether it is closed permanently or what for this is certainly the season and Sunday would be one of the best days to be open.

Had a little more difficulty with the Mercury Friday when Wilma, MV and I went to Washington Court House to do a little shopping.  We scraped the bottom of the gas tank and it began to leak profusely and so ended up with us having to get it replaced.  In the meantime the fire department had to hose the streets and the service station.  Guess I was lucky no one was around throwing matches or cigarettes or it would have followed me fast!!  As Dad keeps saying the next thing to go is the exhaust system but so far that is about the only original fixtures under the body and hood.

Monday was quite a day too for Duffie Doo Silver Streak unbeknownst to me rode to Wilmington and refused to come home.  I hated it especially for Roberta's sake for know how unhappy she will be on her next visit if that little furry thing isn't on hand to greet her.  Mary Virginia took it very well – it saved solving some questions of what to do about her while we are away but I am still having dreams of her and what may have happened to him (it).Patty Walker Ryan had a little girl just a little over a week after Jacalyn's wedding day so all came out okay.  Just noticed it in yesterday's paper so hope she got along okay.  They have named her Shellie Jo to accompany Shannon Dee.  If Jim was at the wedding we didn't know it for he is unknown to us but doubt if he made it.  Nancy sounded as if she has about given up going to Europe.

Tuesday didn't start off too sunny but we were on our way around 8AM and met Bob Gooding at the Canoe Livery (Morgan's) where we took their bus to the Caesar Creek area.  There Beverly was waiting with their canoe and we were soon on our way.  It was good that it was cloudy for it wasn't too hot.  The sun did come out while we were having a picnic lunch at the roadside park near the I-75 bridge.  We thought the tables would all be taken but they had closed the road dow to it because of a mud slide across the road.  Darlene Linkhart went with Mary Virginia.  Bob had to leave for Salt Lake City the next day for a couple of days so we separated after the canoeing.  Darlene had never been to Fort Ancient since she was real little so stopped to see the view there and the museum which really fascinated her.  There are several competitors for the Morgans now so had no trouble getting a canoe but had made reservations earlier.

Wednesday night was Lions Club and Dad was on the committee, had a basic menu of roast beef, baked potatoes, succotash, salads and pistachio pudding.  For the thirty people the cost for the four of us averaged about $7.00 each.  For the program we had a fellow from near Hillsboro who had been to Brazil and who was excited enough about it that he even wanted to buy land down there.  He is really sold on it as a place for the future.

Clyde Irwin brought a big mess of green beans last Saturday – ours will be ready in a few days.  We should be having tomatoes in a couple more weeks.  We should have an earlier garden next year for plan to get some more fertilizer before the next season.

The Wolfroms (all except little Jeannie) are leading a canoe trip in Canada.  The group is leaving tomorrow morning – Rev. Wise, Keith Rittenhouse and David Thornburg are among those going.  They are to be gone ten days.  If Dad didn't already have plans made to be gone he might have been influenced to have gone with them.

We have not told anyone around here about our upcoming trip but plan to leave Cincinnati Monday evening, July 17th.  Mary Virginia will be going that same afternoon to Hudson Guild to stay until we go over the first week of August.  We are due back I believe Tuesday, July 25th so hope to hear from all of you before we go and also have a letter when we get back ???  Grandma is planning on going to New Jersey with us about Aug. 3rd and if all goes well we will be at the farm that evening and then go to New York a couple of days later – more details later.  She (G'ma) will stay at the farm while we are at the Bar Meeting but hope that Roberta, and John may get to come into New York while we are there.  What are your chances of going with us, Serena, or are you interested?  Think Mary Virginia is coming to New York for some of the time.

Your trip into Oregon and possibly Washington sounds interesting, Catherine and Gerry and hope you get some possible prospects through the International Harvester dealers.  We would certainly love to see all of you and wish that we might all be together for a reunion.  I just finished reading a book written by Laura Hughes' sister about their family – their move to Ohio from Kentucky and the hardships they faced during the early 1920's and 30's.  Pictures of Mrs. Hughes as a little girl look so much like Weegie as I remember her growing up.

We do want to get this into the mail so that Catherine gets if before she leaves Oregon (Hillsboro) where she will be visiting her Kalamazoo classmate Sue . . . can't recall her name now and don't have the letter too handy.

We shall be thinking of all of you and always look forward to hearing from you.  Also glad to hear that Rob is enjoying Hudson Guild and vice versa.

With much love to you all and a special kiss for Wendy

          “Degeaba suntem campioni mondiali, dacă tinerii nu știu unde e Rusia!”      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Înainte de eliminarea Naționalei Uruguayului, selecționerul și fostul profesor Oscar Washington Tabarez, în vârstă de 71 de ani, a uimit întreaga lume. Acesta a trimis o scrisoare către conducătorii statului sud-american și le-a cerut să investească mai mult în educație și în viitorul copiilor.

“Dragi compatrioți, ne aflăm într-un moment definitoriu pentru țară, pentru tinerii noștri și pentru viitorul nostru. În aceste zile jucăm meciuri importante. Este necesar sprijinul tuturor uruguayenilor. Dacă nu obținem rezultate bune acum, dacă nu îndeplinim obiectivele și visurile a mii și mii de uruguayeni, va trebui să așteptăm mulți ani pentru a putea schimba situația. Acum avem oportunitatea de a respecta ce am promis și să marcăm cel mai important gol: să le dăm tinerilor noștri cele mai bune condiții pentru a învăța. Trebuie să punem educația publică pe primele locuri în clasamentele internaționale. E momentul să îndeplinim ce am promis și să trimitem 6% din PIB către Educație.

Ca profesor știu efortul, dedicarea și compromisul pe care fiecare îl face în clasă. Pe acel teren e greu să joci. Este terenul unde rivalii și dificultățile sunt enorme. Proasta alimentație a studenților, lipsa motivației și a stimulilor, lipsa materialelor didactice pentru a munci, suprapopularea și, înainte de toate, lipsa recunoștinței sunt obstacolele în această luptă importantă pentru a construi o societate mai bună.

De aceea, în acest meci trebuie să îi încurajăm pe cei care joacă și pe studenți. Nu ajută la nimic să câștigi Campionatul Mondial dacă tinerii nu știu unde este Rusia pe hartă sau de ce la naționala Franței sunt așa mulți jucători născuți în Africa sau cu părinți africani. Nu ajută să fim campioni mondiali dacă tinerilor nu le transmitem că apreciem ce fac ei și că suntem de părere că au un viitor plin de speranțe. Avem responsabilitatea și obligația de a le spune tuturor tinerilor și copiilor din Uruguay că noi credem în ei, că merită să pariem pe viitorul lor și că dacă e nevoie vom face eforturi și mai mari pentru a le da ce merită.

Acum e momentul. Trebuie să intonăm imnul cu putere și să spunem că vom face asta. Trebuie să ne ținem de ce am promis: 6% din PIB pentru Educația Publică. Un salut frățesc și respectuos către toți profesorii din Uruguay” a fost mesajul trimis de Oscar Tabarez.

  •           Fake News Is A Meaningless Term, And Our Obsession Over It Continues To Harm Actual News      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Many people forget now, but in the wake of the 2016 election, it was mainly those opposed to Donald Trump who were screaming about "fake news." They wanted an explanation for what they believed was impossible -- and one thing that many, especially in the journalism field focused on, were the made up stories that got shared wildly on Facebook. At the time, we warned that nothing good would come from so many people blaming "fake news" for the election, and I think it's fair to say we were correct on that. President Trump quickly co-opted the phrase and turned it into a mantra directed at any news story about him or his administration that he didn't like.

    And, of course, the term was always meaningless. It encompassed such a broad spectrum of things -- from completely made up stories, to stories with bad sourcing or an error, to stories that were spun in a way people didn't like or found misleading, to stories with a minor mistake, to just stories someone didn't like. But each of those is very, very different, and the way that different news organizations respond to these issues can be very different as well. For example, professional publications that make mistakes will publish corrections when they discover they've made an error. Sometimes they don't do so well, and they don't always do a very good job of publicizing the correction -- but they do strive to get things right. That's different than publications that simply put up purely fake stuff, just for the hell of it. And there really aren't that many such sites. But by lumping them all in as fake news, people start to blur the distinctions, and think that basically everyone is just making shit up all the time.

    That culminates in a new report claiming (though I question the methodology on this...) that 72% of Americans surveyed believe that traditional news sources "report news they know to be fake, false, or purposely misleading." The breakdown by political affiliation is that 53% of Democrats think this happens "a lot" or "sometimes," 79% of Independents, and 92% of Republicans. Of course, if you dug into the numbers, I'm guessing that the Democrats would point to Fox News as their proof, while the Republicans would point to MSNBC, CNN and maybe the NY Times/Washington Post.

    Of course, most of this is silly. Some of it is the fact that the vast majority of news consumers don't know the difference between the hard news divisions of these news organizations and the "commentary" side of these organizations, with the latter being more in the entertainment, bomb throwing side of things, and who stake out ridiculous positions because that's what they're paid to do. The actual news orgs all do actually tend to want to do good reporting. They aren't always good at that -- in fact, they're often bad at it. But that's very, very different than deliberately spreading "fakes, false or purposely misleading" news.

    However, simply lumping mistakes or a spin you dislike on coverage as "fake news" doesn't help. It just makes things more ridiculous and gets people up in arms more. And, again, just as we predicted, with the push to clamp down on "fake news," the end result is actually suppressing news. Facebook -- which was the main target of the whining from the anti-Trump world on "fake news" -- basically threw up its hands and said it would decrease all the news that people saw. And that means that every publication that was heavily relying on Facebook for traffic (i.e., nearly every publications except for us at Techdirt who ignored Facebook), is now getting slammed.

    Slate tried to get news orgs to talk about how much their Facebook traffic dropped and no one would talk, so it revealed its own traffic decline from Facebook, dropping from 28 million clicks in January 2017 (about 1/3 of its total traffic) down to less than 4 million in May 2018 (now representing 11% of its traffic) -- a drop of 87%. The site claims Facebook traffic has dropped 55% alone in 2018. Again, we deliberately avoided "playing the Facebook game" over the last decade, so the site has never been a significant source of traffic. However, for comparison purposes, I checked, and Facebook represented 2.7% of our own traffic in January of 2017, and 2.4% of our traffic in May of 2018 -- basically no different, but also close to a rounding error.

    But really, what this comes down to is that the whole "fake news" claim has always been silly and the calls to "do something" about fake news have really only served to make things worse. Using such a non-descriptive term has given lots and lots of people an excuse to mock or ignore any news or news organizations they dislike. And it's given an excuse to Facebook to step back from the news business altogether. None of that makes the public better news consumers or more media literate. All it does is keep people in their silos getting angry at each other.

              Daybreak Youth Services gets $100,000 grant      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Daybreak Youth Services, a nonprofit organization that gives children and teens help with addiction and mental health services in Washington state, has received a $100,000 grant from the Washington Women's Foundation to help grow its new life-enrichment program at the RWC Center for Adolescent Recovery in Brush Prairie, it's facility near the city of Vancouver, near the Oregon state border..

    The program, known as Paths to Prosperity, connects the clients at Daybreak to vocational and recreational activities in the community so that they can develop a love for clean and sober living and are empowered to take the next steps in building futures for themselves.

    Nearly 350 different nonprofits vied for one of five "Pooled Fund" grants from the Foundation this year, which were awarded in the following giving areas: Arts and Culture, Education, Environment, Health, and Human Services. Washington Women's Foundation members selected Daybreak as the grant recipient in the Health category.

    "With so many deserving nonprofits across the state of Washington, It is truly an honor to be selected," said Annette Klinefelter, Daybreak CEO. "We are beyond grateful to receive such generous support for our Paths to Prosperity life enrichment program from Washington Women's Foundation members."

    The grant money will be used to help connect the boys and girls at Daybreak to vocational and recreational opportunities including dance therapy, outdoor adventures and art therapy - experiences that are proven to have a positive impact on how clients view themselves, and their path to recovery.

    "Our members were not only moved by the stories of the young adults receiving treatment at Daybreak Youth Services, they were truly impressed by the organization's leadership and vision for this program," noted Beth McCaw, President & CEO of Washington Women's Foundation. "We hope that our grant will provide a firm foundation to build and expand upon the early successes achieved by Daybreak in Spokane, for the benefit of youth and families in Brush Prairie."

    Daybreak's Paths to Prosperity program was first introduced at its Spokane facility in 2016. Since the program's implementation, treatment completion rates at the inpatient facility have increased by 20 percent, critical incidents have decreased by 40 percent, and satisfaction surveys have improved with clients often listing Paths to Prosperity activities as a key element in their recovery process.

    Daybreak Youth Services is a nonprofit provider of adolescent addiction and mental health treatment services in Washington state. With inpatient facilities near Vancouver (Brush Prairie) and Spokane, the organization provides safe and secure environments where adolescents ages 12-18 can commit to their recovery while engaging in school and recreation. Daybreak also offers inpatient psychiatric evaluation & treatment services for teens with acute mental health issues and co-gender outpatient programs in Spokane and the Vancouver area.

              How Trump's pardons stack up to his predecessors      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    President Trump increased his total number of pardons to seven on Tuesday by granting clemency to two Oregon cattle ranchers, Dwight Lincoln Hammond and his son, Steven Hammond, who were imprisoned for setting fire to federal land.

    Data: Department of Justice; Chart: Chris Canipe/Axios

    The big picture: While he still lags far behind many of his predecessors in overall pardons, Trump is the first president since George H.W. Bush to grant a pardon within the first two years of his presidency. H. W.'s pardons in his first year were all related to the Iran-Contra affair.


    • Last month, a White House official told the Washington Post that Trump was "obsessed" with pardons, calling them the president’s new "favorite thing" to talk about.

    The details:

    Why it matters: Trump has gone so far as to say that he had the "absolute right" to pardon himself — something legal experts debate. Many critics are worried Trump will ultimately use his pardon power in conjunction with the Mueller investigation.

    • Yes, but: Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani has said that he's advised Trump not to issue any pardons during the Mueller investigation, but noted that "when it's over," Trump can do as he pleases.

              The big picture: What to know about Kavanaugh's judicial record      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    If confirmed, President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, would rank just after Justice Clarence Thomas as the court's second most conservative member.

    Why it matters: Kavanaugh's confirmation would shift the court for a generation, impacting decisions on topics like gun rights, health care, social issues and more. His judicial record, however, indicates that he may not be as reliably conservative as many Republicans would hope.


    Health care

    From Axios' Sam Baker:

    • "Kavanaugh's most significant ACA-related decision was in a case about the individual mandate. He did not, contrary to what some of his critics have implied, vote to uphold the mandate."
    • "The second case dealt with a more far-fetched challenge: It sought to have the ACA invalidated because the Senate wrote most of it. ... The Constitution's Origination Clause says bills that raise revenues have to originate in the House, not the Senate."
    • "Such Senate amendments are permissible under the Clause’s text and precedent," Kavanaugh wrote. But he said an earlier ruling had upheld the law for the wrong reasons — and that his court should take another look at that decision. He lost.

    Environment

    From Axios' Ben Geman:

    • Kavanaugh "won't be inclined to give federal agencies wide latitude on imposing climate and environmental regulations."
    • "Longtime environmental lawyer David Bookbinder tells Axios that, by his count, Kavanaugh has been involved with six climate change cases, and in five of those he took a 'narrow' view of EPA's regulatory authority."
    • Former Obama official Jody Freeman told Ben in an email: "I am not sure he is so different from Justice Kennedy on this score. ... Can we expect decisions that cabin EPA somewhat? I think yes. I would expect a Justice Kavanaugh to make sure EPA and other agencies 'stay in their lane' so to speak."

    Press freedom

    From Axios' Sara Fischer:

    • "Kavanaugh...is a constitutional conservative that some legal experts argue would likely side with conservatives in supporting corporate free speech cases."
    • "When it comes to libel, the Hollywood Reporter's Eriq Gardner details a decision authored by Kavanaugh at the U.S Appeals Court for the D.C Circuit four years ago that allows litigation to be used to deter free speech."
    • "When it comes to net neutrality, Vice has an article explaining why Kavanaugh is a major net neutrality opponent."

    Privacy

    From Axios' Shanna Vavra:

    • "Kavanaugh has stood behind warrantless government surveillance in the past, including the NSA’s surveillance operation that former NSA contractor Ed Snowden exposed in 2013."
    • "He wrote, 'the Government’s metadata collection program is entirely consistent with the Fourth Amendment. … In my view, that critical national security need outweighs the impact on privacy occasioned by this program.'"
    • "Kavanaugh also dissented on the court’s decision in 2010 about authorities placing a GPS tracker on a suspect’s car without a warrant. Kavanaugh said the suspect did not have a reasonable expectation of privacy in his public movements."

    Abortion

    Per NBC, "Kavanaugh's record of public comments and legal decisions on abortion rights is relatively thin."

    • He told Sen. Chuck Schumer in 2006, on the issue of Roe v. Wade: "If confirmed to the D.C. circuit, I will follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully. That would be binding precedent of the court, It's been decided by the Supreme Court."
    • In October, when a pregnant undocumented teenager wanted an abortion, Kavanaugh wrote in his dissent that "the court was wrong to conclude she had the right to 'an immediate abortion on demand.' ... He said delaying the procedure until she could be released to a U.S. sponsor would not impose an undue burden on the abortion right," NBC reports.

    Executive power

    Kavanaugh has "consistently [sided] with arguments in favor of broad executive authority," the Washington Post reports.

    • "He has called for restructuring the government's consumer watchdog agency so the president could remove the director and has been a leading defender of the government's position when it comes to using military commissions to prosecute terrorism suspects."
    • Something that could come up during his confirmation: In 2009, Kavanaugh "argued that presidents should not be distracted while in office by civil lawsuits or criminal investigations," per The Post.

    Regulations

    Kavanaugh "has often been skeptical of government regulations," the Wall Street Journal reports. "And he has argued in favor of greater judicial power in reviewing the actions of administrative agencies on major questions."

    • He's "been open to using the First Amendment to strike down government regulations."
    • His career on the D.C. Circuit has "been marked with dozens of votes to roll back rules and regulations," another WSJ report states.

    Corporations

    Politico reports that business groups were called upon by the White House on Monday "to help push his confirmation."

    • The White House, in a document sent out to business groups, "wrote that Kavanaugh has overruled federal regulators 75 times on cases involving clean air, consumer protections, net neutrality and other issues," and most recently "favored curtailing the power of independent federal regulators."

    Rafael del Barco Carreras

    Barcelona 10-7-2018. La primera frase del victimisma y xenófobo Quim Torra, tras enfrentarse a la 'bestia española", debería esculpirse en bronce en la puerta de Palau:

     “Yo le expliqué a Pedro Sánchez que tengo 56 años, que mis hijos son mayores y que no tengo nada que perder”

    En Catalunya Radio, una vez dormido el 'gran diálogo', inicia los titulares desde Barcelona, y el primero dirigido a sus huestes retrata a un chulito de pueblo de la profunda Cataluña enfrentado al dragón de la cueva que retiene a la virginal princesa llamada República de Catalunya.

    ¡¡¡Y 'tiene que perder' el mejor sueldo de España, digo mínimo 145.000 euros más gastos y viajes.¡¡¡

    No se sabe que el dragón o bestia, dixit de todos los españoles, le preguntara o requiriera el porqué gana casi un 40% más que él mismo, presidente del Gobierno de España, pero presumo que Sánchez en ningún momento pretendió enfadar a su invitado, que bien pudiera responderle que su trabajo hacia la rutura o voladura de España requiere mucho más esfuerzo, o equilibrio entre 'salvadores de su patria', que el suyo de recibir y torearse a todos los pedigüeños del Reino.

    ¿Habrá algún catalán de su caterva que valore el riesgo de jugarse ese sueldazo que ni en sueños ganó en su vida?. Sueldo más el esplendido retiro que a partir de YA le corresponde por haber sido president de esa Generalitat que más tiene de cuerno de la abundancia que de govern de una de las 18 autonomías españolas. ¡Tan espléndido retiro que su compadre Puigdemont reclama desde Hamburgo! El 80% del sueldo más una oficina con secretarias, chófer y coche, mas guardaespaldas.

    Pero la expresión esconde un doble sentido, aviso subliminal a sus devotos; ayer no se jugaba las 'ganancias' sino la 'libertad'. Es consciente que su entrega a la causa de la 'malversación sedición y desobediencia' le convierte en flagrante delincuente, y también muy probable que en todas las democracias del Mundo, tras cualquiera de sus múltiples viajes ya le hubieran detenido por mínimo 'traidor' al estado del que cobra y le paga los viajes, pero "España es diferente" o Pedro Sánchez le necesita para la GOBERNABILIDAD.

    "El líder del PSC, Miquel Iceta, ha confiado en que el encuentro de ayer entre los presidentes español y catalán, Pedro Sánchez y Quim Torra, sentó las bases para una relación personal de “confianza” más allá de diferencias políticas: “Cuando has conocido a Quim Torra tienes ganas de llevarlo a cenar”.
    “Hay un tema importantísimo en la relación entre políticos que es el conocimiento personal. Si tú de Quim Torra solo conoces sus textos, no te lo llevarías a cenar. Ahora, cuando has conocido a Quim Torra tienes ganas de llevarlo a cenar”, ha asegurado en una entrevista en RAC1."


     “Yo le expliqué a Pedro Sánchez que tengo 56 años, que mis hijos son mayores y que no tengo nada que perder”, ha desvelado este martes el presidente de la Generalitat, Quim Torra, en una entrevista en 'Catalunya Ràdio' en la que ha destripado todo su encuentro en la Moncloa. No le dijo de manera literal que estaba dispuesto a ir a la cárcel, pero lo dejó en el aire, según su versión del encuentro. Si ayer todas las partes optaron por ofrecer a la opinión pública la versión Disney de la cumbre en Madrid, este martes Torra prefirió en la radio pública detallar la de mayores de 18 años, o al menos, como se decía en la época de la Transición, la de “mayores sin reparos”.



    "El líder de la CUP en el Parlament, Carles Riera, ha asegurado que los partidarios de la independencia no pueden estar contentos con la reunión entre Torra y Sánchez: "Quienes queríamos llevar el proceso hacia la república es lógico que estemos enfadados". En declaraciones a Catalunya Ràdio, ha afirmado que el Govern debe elegir entre dos caminos: uno que lleva a la independencia y el otro que lleva a "una mejora de la autonomía" y ha dicho que recorrer los dos a la vez es incompatible. "Tenemos que dejar de engañar a la gente con una perspectiva de negociación con el Estado que solo nos lleva hacia el autonomismo", ha zanjado. "

     "El presidente catalán Quim Torra es consciente que la imagen de diálogo distendido con el presidente Pedro Sánchez, durante su reunión en Moncloa ayer lunes, duele a los ojos muchos independentistas convencidos. De ahí que esta mañana, en una entrevista a Catalunya Ràdio, intentara declinar su mensaje de cara a los más convencidos. Ha explicitado que "no renunciará a nada" para lograr la independencia de Cataluña. "Le expliqué a Sánchez que tengo 55 años, que mis hijos son muy mayores y que no tengo nada que perder", ha asegurado en la radio pública catalana. "El 90% de la reunión hablamos de autodeterminación. Este es el tema y no me puedo entretener con otros", ha remachado."


     "Parece mentira, pero todavía hay quien analiza un acto solidario para luchar contra una enfermedad en clave estética. Los presidentes Quim Torra y Artur Mas han dado apoyo recientemente a los actos que conmemoraban los 25 años de la campaña "Mójate por la esclerosis múltiple". Los dos fueron el domingo a la playa de Barcelona para darse el simbólico y anual chapuzón para concienciar de esta enfermedad y recaudar fondos. Con ellos, otros miembros de la plana política catalana como el consejero de Interior, Miquel Buch, el portavoz de JxCat, Eduard Pujol, y el vicepresidente de la Mesa del Parlamento, Josep Costa, entre otros."

     "Quim Torra sigue alimentando su agenda «internacional». Si bien a finales de junio protagonizó un sonado viaje que lo llevó hasta Washington -donde protagonizó una notable polémica con el embajador español en los Estados Unidos, Pedro Morenés- ahora se desplaza hasta Escocia, un auténtico faro para el independentismo catalán. Una misión quizás más amable, pero igual de estéril."


    "La «pax» firmada ayer entre el Gobierno y el independentismo con la reunión mantenido entre Quim Torra y Pedro Sánchez empieza a agrietarse. Esta mañana, el presidente catalán ha desvelado que en su encuentro con el jefe del Ejecutivo central le reprochó haber recurrido ante el Tribunal Constitucional (TC) la moción a través de la que el Parlament se reafirmó en los objetivos políticos de la resolución independentista del 9N de 2015.
    «Empezamos mal presidente», asegura Torra que le dijo a Sánchez. Asimismo, según ha explicado este martes el máximo responsable del Govern en una entrevista con Catalunya Ràdio, Sánchez le respondió que estaba «obligado a hacerlo» porque dicha moción estaba «fuera de la legalidad». No en vano, recupera el espíritu rupturista de la anterior legislatura."


     "Solo ha pasado un mes y medio, pero parece una eternidad. Pedro Sánchez, el hombre que invitó a Quim Torra a pasear por los jardines de La Moncloa y le enseñó la fuente en la que Antonio Machado le declaraba su amor a su amante Pilar de Valderrama, a la que apodó Guiomar, es el mismo que el 21 de junio comparecía con tono grave en la sede central del PSOE para decir que el president de la Generalitat era un “xenófobo, un racista, el Le Pen español”. Nada indica que Sánchez haya cambiado de opinión tan rápidamente sobre Torra y sus escritos. Simplemente ha decidido dejar a un lado sus opiniones sobre el president para intentar abrir paso a un diálogo. Y el máximo responsable de la Generalitat también parece dispuesto a aparcar esos golpes durísimos de Sánchez."

    Hot Air, by Jazz Shaw Posted By: JoniTx- Tue, 10 27 2018 11:27:41 GMT Every time the military changes their fitness requirements lately it leads to controversy. This is mostly because so many of the recent changes created at least the suggestion that accommodations were being made for female recruits, or perhaps even males who couldn’t meet the traditional standards. This latest set of changes may sound similar on the surface, but let’s not be too quick to judge. Rather than doing two minutes of push-ups and two minutes of sit-ups, new exercises are being added which supposedly better simulate physical demands encountered on the battlefield.

              What If Jonathan Chait Has Been a Useful Idiot Since 2013?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Back in 2013, when former Communist Party member Ron Radosh was whipping up a Pravda-style disinformation campaign against my anti-communist bookAmerican Betrayal, New York Magazine's Jonathan Chait stepped up and wrote an essay knocking "West's paranoia." While I'm not certain, I strongly suspect Chait was inveigled by Radosh to write the New York Magazine piece; I imagine Radosh blanched at Chait's positive-ish headline: "Conservative Historian Has Interesting Ideas."

    Still, Chait's essay bears the familiar stamp of the Radosh/Horowitz-led assault in its repeated misrepresentations of my footnoted analysis of the influence (not "control") on US policy-making potentially exerted by hundreds of Soviet "agents of influence" and fellow travelers covertly embedded inside the US government -- the subversive force that "court historians," who bestow glory on political favorites rather than shed light on the past, ignore or deny to this day. Not that it is likely journalista Chait cracked the book. All he had to do was pretend, a la Radosh & Horowitz, that I had advanced a theory, as Chait put it, that "the Soviets controlled the American government in the way they controlled, say, East Germany." As any reader knows, this is cartoonish rubbish -- but a handy way to deceive readers into dismissing the book as such.

    I am reminded of this because Chait has now spun up an East-Germany-style vision of Donald Trump as Putin's Honecker, a traitor to the USA since 1987. 

    Titled "What If Trump Has Been a Russian Asset Since 1987?," the Chait piece does not even rise to the level of "conspiracy theory," Chait having presented no conspiracy to theorize about. His technique is to raise, magnify and connect doubts. "How do you even think about the small but real chance — 10 percent? 20 percent? — that the president of the United States has been covertly influenced or personally compromised by a hostile foreign power for decades?" he asks. One answer is, you write a few thousand pointless words.

    But only about Trump. Chait takes everything back to Trump's July 1987 visit to Moscow. That's because in September of that same year Trump took out a series of full-page ads in prominent newspapers noting that "Japan and other nations have been taking advantage of the United States.″ In his open letter to the American people, Trump asked, ″Why are these nations not paying the United States for the human lives and billions of dollars we are losing to protect their interests?"

    Classic Trump -- or was it really Gorbachev in disguise? As Chait notes, it is the Kremlin's propensity to seek splits between the US and its allies. He writes: "The safest assumption is that it’s entirely coincidental that Trump launched a national campaign, with himself as spokesman, built around themes that dovetailed closely with Soviet foreign-policy goals shortly after his Moscow stay. Indeed, it seems slightly insane to contemplate the possibility that a secret relationship between Trump and Russia dates back this far. But it can’t be dismissed completely." (Emphasis added.)

    OK, I won't dismiss it completely. But it is also a fact that Japan by this same point in the mid-1980s was making massive inroads into the US construction market, very much including Manhattan. One Japanese company even built a 20-story addition on top of a building formerly owned by Donald Trump, as the New York Times noted in an article on the expanding share of Japanese construction business in the US. In its story of July 27, 1986, the Times noted: "Japanese construction companies certainly have both the cash and the contacts to create more and more American business. `'Any major Japanese contractor has money to burn,' said an officer of one leading Japanese builder, who asked not to be identified."

    Nah, that couldn't possibly have driven Developer Donald a little nuts, eventually inspiring him to take out those ads the following year to tell the American people that we (and he) were being taken advantage of. The Kremlin made him do it.   

    I jest, of course. The point is, Chait would have rather more credibility on this score if, when the "party line" was a little different, he had not previously rejected on cue the copious historical record of Kremlin influence assembled in American Betrayal as "West's paranoia." Indeed, I don't recall Chait raising, magnifying and connecting such doubts about, say, the Moscow trip of Bill Clinton, whose "themes" as a draft-dodging, war-protesting tourist certainly "dovetailed closely with Soviet foreign-policy goals" both before and after his1969-1970 winter travels to Brezhnev's Moscow, then Prague, still reeling from the Soviet crushing of "Prague Spring."

    Then there's what has been regrettably nicknamed the Trump "pee tape." Chait: "There is growing reason to think the pee tape might indeed exist." Really? Well, there is also reason (whether growing, I can't say) to think that the Czech intelligence recruitment tape of Bill Clinton might indeed exist. Meanwhile, the tape of Barack Obama promising "flexibility" to, as Chait aptly calls him, "former KGB agent" Putin via Medvedev does exist. I know it does because I've seen it. Has Jonathan Chait? (Watch here.) While he's on this sudden Kremlin Influence kick, Chait would also do well to peruse the FBI files on the Soviet/communist connected family of Obama senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, and also brush up on the Soviet/communist troika that politically birthed that winning 2008 team of Obama-Axelrod-Jarrett. 

    It's guaranteed he won't because Chait's pursuits are not about truth-seeking or intellectual stimulation; they are all and only about political manipulation. Nowhere is his agit prop more thickly laid on than when he talks about Donald Trump as Putin's "much-needed flank against not just Obama but his former secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aggressive position against Russia." In transforming Hillary "Reset" Clinton into a regular George Patton, Chait conveniently omits the valuable goodies Obama-Clinton bestowed on Mother Russia, from permanent normal trading status, long coveted by the "former KGB agent," to the massive "civilian" high tech transfer via the Clinton-Foundation-enriching Skolkovo set-up, where, as the Army warned in 2013, hypersonic cruise missile engine technology was already coming online. One has to wonder: Does Chait really think the KGB-linked bank in Moscow gave Bill Clinton that $500K speaking fee in 2012 for nothing? Meanwhile, ask yourself: If you are sitting in the Politburo and one US candidate is promising to revitalize the US military, very much including its nuclear arsenal (Trump), and the other US candidate is arguing that "the last thing we need" is next-generation nuclear-armed cruise missiles (Clinton), whom would you rather "collude" with?

    Such thoughts, however, pose a clear and present danger to Chait's miasmic belief that "the Cold War that Americans had long considered won has dissolved into the bizarre spectacle of Reagan’s party’s abetting the hijacking of American government by a former KGB agent." 

    For the record, I will note that American Betrayal argues America lost the "Cold War," that ever-undermined-from-within struggle against the expansion and entrenchment of communistic ideologies. This probably accounts for some share of the wrath it aroused on the part of Cold War triumphalists who seek to ensure Americans never actually understand how our institutions, from the halls of power in Washington (definitely including the "IC") to the pulpits to the campuses to the culture, were long ago Marxified according to well-executed and well-documented Kremlin strategy executed by masses of genuine American traitors.  

    If America lost the Cold War long ago -- after also losing World War II, American Betrayal's other argument, identifying the Soviet Union as the true victor (thanks to those hundreds of agents of influence at the beating heart of every government, Allied and Axis) --  then it cannot be "Reagan's party abetting the hijacking of the American government" in 2016; it was already a long way toward a fait accompli before Trump ever began his completely unlikely and wholly unexpected political rise on a heretofore unseen counter-revolutionary "America First" platform. 

    Chait's essay, then, is just so much narrative control, just so much framing, just so much warding off of the counter-revolution that President Trump's victory made possible, at least. I could be wrong, but I wouldn't be surprised if it all didn't begin with a heavy dose of Radosh.

    Kilpailukomissaari Margrethe Vestagerin alaisuudessa tehdyssä tutkinnassa on kiinnitetty erityistä huomiota Googlen vaatimiin ehtoihin, joissa Android-puhelimia myyvät laitemerkit velvoitetaan lataamaan laitteisiin valmiiksi Googlen verkkopalveluiden käyttöön tarkoitetut sovellukset. Lukuisten Android-puhelimien mukana toimitetaan Google Play -sovelluskaupan lisäksi esimerkiksi Chrome-verkkoselain, Google Kuvat sekä Google Maps.

    Laitemerkit eivät voi sopimusteknisistä syistä johtuen poistaa Googlen sovelluksia ja korvata niitä esimerkiksi kilpailevan yrityksen palveluilla. Komission näkemyksen mukaan Google on tukahduttanut kilpailua kilpailulainsäädännönvastaisesti.

    THIS SIDE OR THE OTHER

    Black Hen Music, Release Date: August 24, 2018



    David Olney’s New Album Examines The Shadowy Situations Up And Around Walls, Over Borders and Asks For Open Hearts

    Nashville, TN – One listen to the brand-new album, “This Side or The Other,” and you’ll know David Olney is a man familiar with the wandering life and yearning heart of a poet. After more than 30 years in music, he’s had as many incarnations as you can imagine. His resume has expanded to include acting, poetry and a popular weekly stream cast. All of this adds to Olney’s strength as a songwriter’s songwriter, and one of Nashville’s founding fathers of Americana music.  

    While “This Side or The Other” is not a concept album, there are some recurring themes. The frequent reference to walls in these songs – walls being built and tumbling down – will suggest that while Olney has encountered more than his own share of walls, he is still trying his best to understand them.  

    “I wanted to explore the idea of walls,” says Olney, “What does a wall mean? What does it mean to be an immigrant who comes upon that wall as a wanderer, someone lost and alone?” 

    A wall in a song can be the symbolic blockage from one place to another or the flat finality of something coming to an end. In life as in art, Olney has scaled walls and torn them down. Yet, it’s not his own path he is particularly interested in exploring. David Olney has always been an observer, a student, and writer of life for as long as he could hold a pen.  

    “I’m not comfortable writing about my own dirty laundry,” says Olney, “It’s better for me to look at characters and what they might be going through. When I write about the heavy stuff of life, it’s usually while I’m in someone else’s shoes.”  

    “This Side or The Other” contains solid musicianship as good as anything Nashville has to offer, and a stark, moody production by Juno Award-winning producer Steve Dawson.  

    “I look for a producer I can be relaxed around," Olney says, “And I really wanted to work with Steve on this record. And while I knew he was a good producer, I had no idea what a terrific musician he was until I had him play guitar on ‘Death Will Not Divide Us.’ He did a beautiful job.” 

    The other musicians on “This Side or The Other” are Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Charlie McCoy, The McCrary Sisters, Fats Kaplin, Anne McCue and Olney’s regular band: Daniel Seymour on bass, Ward Stout on fiddle and Justin Amaral on drums.  

    The ten songs on “This Side or The Other” have been compiled from new and old writings, as well as a few collaborations with friends. Olney says he enjoys collaborating. “Annie McCue and John Hadley cowrote the title song, ‘This Side or The Other’ with me. It’s currently my favorite song.” 

    In “Stand Tall,” a song Olney’s been writing on-and-off for 25 years, he admits “I’m never going to change the way I am” – a sentiment that will gratify his longtime fans from all over the world, who like him just the way he is and only want more of the same.  

    “Breaking out of your comfort zone,” admits Olney, “can lead to certain encounters with banana peels, but that’s the chance you have to take to get songs and performances with a certain edge. I tend to stay on the margin of the page. I’m always looking for that ‘otherness,’ staying a bit off center.” 

    The sweetest song on the album, a plaintive love song called “Open Your Heart (And Let Me In),” is one-part plea and one part indictment of a would-be lover who’s missing the chance for real love.  

    Olney’s last track is a rootsy cover of The Zombies’ 1965 hit, “She’s Not There.” It’s a delicious reminder that everything David Olney touches gets infused with a rare blend of dark chocolate. Despite it being the cover of a popular song, we hear words we’ve never heard in the same way before.  

    But David Olney knows words. He knows what they can do, and when paired with a bitter/sweet melody, they can take on a life of their own.  

    And maybe they can even tear down walls.

              Are We in a Trade War?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Are We in a Trade War?

    TV pundits keep repeating that we’re in a “trade war.” What does that even mean?

    For starters, if you want to learn more about tariffs and trade, we will hold an informational call on Thursday to discuss newly imposed tariffs, progress on the North American Free Trade Agreement renegotiations and steps the labor movement is taking to find trade policy solutions that benefit working people. (Click here to RSVP.)

    Now, let’s tone down the rhetoric just a bit. Real wars, such as those in Iraq and Afghanistan, are deadly, dangerous, scary affairs. No one should confuse tariffs with real wars.

    In terms of economics, the closest thing we have to a “war” is the relentless attack on workers that has been taking place for several decades as economic elites (including corporate CEOsbad actor employers and the 1% who don’t want to pay their fair share of taxes) have worked to rig global economic rules to benefit themselves at the expense of ordinary working people.  

    The attack on workers has been waged on many fronts, from so-called “right to work” laws that deny our freedom, to regressive tax laws such as the recent Republican tax bill giving big tax breaks to companies that outsource jobs, to attacks on overtime pay and workplace safety, to defunding schools and meals for our children. The attack on workers also comes in the area of trade policy, and includes unfair, predatory actions by China. Trade attacks on workers are aided and abetted by greedy corporations that outsource jobs and abuse workers, and by U.S. officials of both political parties who have failed to stand up for us.

    So why are so many people saying we’re in a trade war? First, to scare us. Maintaining the status quo is exactly what the powerful want to keep workers and wages down. Second, because the U.S. is finally starting to do something about harmful trade practices that hurt working people. It has been so long since the U.S. has ambitiously used trade remedies to defend our economy that Wall Street fat cats are calling it a trade war.

    While tariffs are not dangerous per se (in fact, they can be a very effective tool to address harmful trade practices and create jobs), they must be applied carefully, thoughtfully and strategically. If done right, tariffs can persuade trading partners to change their harmful practices. In that case, the tariffs will disappear quickly. On the other hand, if the tariffs are applied haphazardly, they may backfire, causing more economic disruption than necessary. As with anything it does, the government should be smart in how it applies tariffs. And it should have a plan that minimizes negative side effects for the U.S. economy and prioritizes benefits for working families—no matter in what industry those families work.

    Straight-up outright corruption and nobody cares

    by digby



    When I think about the shrieking wingnut outrage about Clinton speaking on the phone with some people who gave money to the family charity I feel as if my head is going to explode. The president and all of his cronies are blatantly and openly corrupt and yet unless it is so overwhelming in dozens of different ways and is relentless chronicled in the press as it was with Pruitt, nobody gives a damn.

    Get a load of this:

    Rudolph W. Giuliani continues to work on behalf of foreign clients both personally and through his namesake security firm while serving as President Trump’s personal attorney — an arrangement experts say raises conflict of interest concerns and could run afoul of federal ethics laws.

    Giuliani said in recent interviews with The Washington Post that he is working with clients in Brazil and Colombia, among other countries, as well as delivering paid speeches for a controversial Iranian dissident group. He has never registered with the Justice Department on behalf of his overseas clients, asserting it is not necessary because he does not directly lobby the U.S. government and is not charging Trump for his services.

    His decision to continue representing foreign entities also departs from standard practice for presidential attorneys, who in the past have generally sought to sever any ties that could create conflicts with their client in the White House.

    Well ok then. There's nothing at all suspicious about working pro-bono for the president of the United States while taking money from foreign governments. Who could object to that? He says he isn't lobbying so that's all we need to know.

    Lookee here:




    Standard disclaimer for the kids: this isn't normal. It isn't normal at all.

    The Trump collusion timeline

    by digby




    Just Security has put together a nice timeline of Trump's interactions with the Russian government since he was elected. It's quite interesting when you look at it all together. It's certainly fine to propose a fresh start with relations between the two countries. But they seemed to have a much more specific agenda from thevery beginning.

    I've just excerpted the first six months after the election:

    Nov. 14, 2016 — In their first official phone call, President-elect Trump and Putin agree on the “absolutely unsatisfactory state of bilateral relations” between Russia and the U.S., according to the New York Times. The two leaders agreed to meet at some point in the future and “endorse” the idea of taking efforts “to normalize relations and pursue constructive cooperation on the broadest possible range of issues.”

    Nov. 18, 2016 — President-elect Trump names retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as his national security advisor, stirring controversy in part because of Flynn’s ties to Russia, according to the Washington Post. In 2015, Flynn accepted payment from RT — a Russian news channel that had become a propaganda arm — to attend the station’s gala event in Moscow. Putin also attended the gala, and RT later published photos of the two dining next to each other.

    Dec. 1 or 2, 2016 — Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak meets with former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and Trump Senior Advisor Jared Kushner in Trump Tower. The meeting is not disclosed to the public until March 2017. The White House first states that its purpose was to “establish a line of communication.” Kislyak later reports to superiors in Moscow that, in the meeting, Kushner suggested setting up a secure channel between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin, to be hosted at the Russian embassy or consulate, according to the Washington Post.

    Dec. 12, 2016 — President-elect Trump officially nominates Rex Tillerson as secretary of state, spurring controversy because of Tillerson’s close relationship with Russia. As CEO of Exxon Mobil, Tillerson had engaged in joint ventures with Rosneft, a state-backed Russian oil company, and had received the Order of Friendship from Russia in 2013, according to the New York Times.

    Dec. 13, 2016 — Senior Trump Advisor Jared Kushner meets with Sergey Gorkov, then-chairman of Russia’s government-owned Vnesheconombank (VEB) and a close ally of Putin, at Russian Ambassador Kislyak’s request. The bank was placed on the sanctions list following Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea. In June 2017, the Washington Post reports that VEB says the meeting was conducted in relation to Kushner’s family real estate business. However, the Trump White House later maintains it was a diplomatic meeting in which Kushner was acting in his role as soon-to-be presidential adviser. Kushner testifies on July 24, 2017 to the Senate and House Intelligence Committees that Kislyak had recommended the meeting because Gorkov “had a direct relationship with” Putin. Kushner said they discussed the general poor state of US-Russian relations but that they didn’t touch on any specific policies nor on Obama-era sanctions against Russia. “At no time was there any discussion about my companies, business transactions, real estate projects, loans, banking arrangements or any private business of any kind.”

    Dec. 29, 2016 — Shortly after the White House notifies Russia of sanctions that the Obama administration will impose for election interference, Michael Flynn speaks with Russian Ambassador Kislyak. During the phone call, Flynn discusses the sanctions. According to several current and former officials who read transcripts of the call, Flynn told Kislyak that Russia should not overreact to impending sanctions for election interference because the Trump administration would be in a position to revisit the sanctions and change policy toward Russia, according to the Washington Post. Nearly one year later, Flynn pleads guilty to lying to investigators regarding his conversations with the Russian ambassador.

    Dec. 29, 2016 — Within four hours of the Obama White House’s announced sanctions against Russia for election interference, Trump issues a written statement in response saying, “It’s time for our country to move on to bigger and better things.”

    Dec. 30, 2016 — Following Russia’s surprise turnaround decision not to respond to the U.S. sanctions in-kind, Trump tweets: “Great move on delay (by V. Putin) – I always knew he was very smart!” Putin’s decision came as a surprise in part because Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov had earlier said in televised remarks, “Of course, we cannot leave these sanctions unanswered … Reciprocity is the law of diplomacy and international relations.”

    Jan. 3-4, 2017 — In a series of tweets, Trump disparages the intelligence from U.S. agencies scheduled to brief him on their findings that Russia interfered in the 2016 election.

    Jan. 6, 2017 – May 9, 2017 — Jan. 6 is the date then-FBI Director James Comey helped brief Trump on Russian election interference, and May 9 was his final day as FBI Director. In his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey is asked (by Senator Joe Manchin) whether Trump showed “any concern or interest or curiosity about what the Russians were doing.” Comey responds that he does not recall any conversations with Trump about Russian election interference during the former FBI Director’s time in office. Comey is also asked (by Senator Martin Heinrich), “Did the President in any of those interactions that you’ve shared with us today ask you what you should be doing or what our government should be doing — or the intelligence community — to protect America against Russian interference in our election system?” Comey says he does not recall any conversation like that–“never.”

    Jan. 6-7, 2017 — After the briefing by intelligence officials, Trump acknowledgesthat the Russian government may have been involved in the hacking of Democratic National Committee computers, but says it didn’t affect the outcome of the election because Russia didn’t gain access to voting systems, and says he wants to improve relations with Russia.

    Jan. 11, 2017 — George Nader, a Lebanese-American fixer and advisor to the United Arab Emirates, convenes a secret meeting in the Seychelles at the “behest” of UAE Crown Prince Mohammed, according to the New York Times. The meeting is between Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater and a Trump supporter (and brother of Betsy DeVos, Trump’s then-nominee to be secretary of education), and Kirill Dmitriev, a Russian wealth fund manager with ties to President Putin. The apparent purpose of the meeting is to test Russia’s commitment to Iran and to set up a communication channel between President-elect Trump and Moscow, according to the Washington Post.

    Prince testifies before Congress in November that the meeting with Dmitriev was a “chance-encounter,” and that he traveled to the Seychelles to pursue a “business opportunity” with potential customers from the UAE, who had suggested that he meet with a Russian businessman staying at the same hotel, Vox reports. However, according to reporting by ABC News and the Washington Post, Special Counsel Robert Mueller reportedly has new evidence and a cooperating witness in Nader, who is allegedly testifying that the meeting was preplanned to set up communications between the Trump transition team and Moscow so that they could “discuss future relations between the countries.” The New York Times also reports that Kirill Dmitriev had met Trump associate Anthony Scaramucci at the 2017 Davos forum, after which Scaramucci criticized the Obama administration sanctions on Russia with a TASS reporter.

    Jan. 11, 2017 — At a news conference, Trump says, “I think it was Russia” that hacked the 2016 U.S. election, but then diminishes its significance, adding, “But I think we also get hacked by other countries and other people.” He draws comparisons to other incidents of hacking, and suggests that the DNC left itself open to hacking and deserves some blame. Trump also says, “Russia will have much greater respect for our country when I am leading it than when other people have led it,” according to CNN.

    Post-Jan. 20, 2017 — In the “early weeks” of the administration, top Trump administration officials task State Department staff “with developing proposals for the lifting of economic sanctions,” until their efforts are blocked by State Department officials and members of Congress, according to reporting by Michael Isikoff of Yahoo News.

    Jan. 20-early Feb., 2017 — National Security Advisor Michael Flynn advocates for closer military communication with Russia to fight ISIS. According to several current and former Pentagon sources cited by the Daily Beast, Flynn suggests that a military communications channel originally established to prevent in-air collisions be expanded for other purposes that could have approached “outright cooperation” with Russia. Both the Pentagon and Centcom oppose Flynn’s idea.

    Jan. 26-Feb. 13, 2017 — Acting Attorney General Sally Yates meets personally with White House Counsel Don McGahn about National Security Advisor Flynn’s conversations with Russian Ambassador Kislyak in December 2016. Yates warns the White House Counsel that Flynn’s statement that he did not discuss sanctions with the Russian Ambassador is untrue and that in her view Flynn is accordingly vulnerable to being blackmailed by Russia. Yates is fired on January 30 for refusing to enforce the immigration ban. (ABC News). It is not until February 13 that Flynn is asked to resign, following a Washington Post story revealing the meeting with Yates and the White House Counsel. (New York Times) (Washington Post)

    Feb. 6, 2017 — In a Super Bowl interview with Bill O’Reilly, Trump says he respects Putin and dismisses the host’s characterization of the Russian president as a “killer.” “There are a lot of killers,” Trump says. “Do you think our country is so innocent?

    Feb. 14, 2017 — The New York Times reports that Russia has deployed a cruise missile in violation of the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Force (INF) treatysigned by President Ronald Reagan and his Soviet counterpart Mikhail Gorbachev. In congressional testimony, Gen. Paul Selva, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff states, “We believe that the Russians have deliberately deployed it in order to pose a threat to NATO and to facilities within the NATO area of responsibility.” The administration does not issue a public statement rebuking Russia. When Trump is asked about the violation in a February 24 interview with Reuters, he says, “To me, it’s a big deal,” and adds that he “would bring it up” with Putin “if and when we meet.” The State Department reiterated the alleged violation in its April 2017 report and in December 2017, released a strategy to counter the alleged violations, according to the Arms Control Association.

    March 21, 2017 — The State Department announces that Secretary Rex Tillerson will not attend his intended first NATO meeting in Brussels on April 5-6, and will instead stay in the U.S. to join Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. During the same announcement, the State Department notes that Tillerson will travel to Russia in April, drawing criticism that the administration is prioritizing Russia over historical allies and the NATO alliance, according to Reuters. Subsequently, the State Department offers new dates to reschedule the NATO meeting, and Tillerson attends.

    March 31, 2017 — Tillerson meets with NATO leaders in Brussels. In his remarks, Tillerson reiterates the frequent U.S. exhortation over the years that allies increase their defense spending, but seems to take it a step further, saying: “As President Trump has made clear, it is no longer sustainable for the U.S. to maintain a disproportionate share of NATO’s defense expenditures.”

    April 2-27, 2017 — In an interview on April 2, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley says: “Certainly I think Russia was involved in the U.S. election.” On April 5, Haley criticizes Russia for obstructing UN action on Syria and for supporting Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. Haley says Russia made an “unconscionable choice” by opposing a resolution condemning the use of chemical weapons, and rhetorically asks “how many more children have to die before Russia cares?”

    However, during a working lunch on April 24 with UN Security Council ambassadors including Haley, Trump jests, “Now, does everybody like Nikki? Because if you don’t … she can easily be replaced,” according to the Washington Post. Further, on April 27, Secretary of State Tillerson sends UN Ambassador Haley an email instructing her that, from then on, her comments should be “re-cleared with Washington if they are substantively different from the building blocks, or if they are on a high-profile issue,” according to the New York Times.

    April 6, 2017 — In response to a reported chemical attack perpetrated by the Assad regime, the Trump administration launches a military attack on a Syrian-government airfield near Homs from which the chemical weapons attack reportedly was launched, according to NBC News. In an interview with Fox News, National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster suggests Russia may have known about the chemical attacks in advance saying: “I think what we should do is ask Russia, how could it be, if you have advisers at that airfield, that you didn’t know that the Syrian air force was preparing and executing a mass murder attack with chemical weapons?”

    April 23, 2017 — In an Associated Press interview, Trump expresses strong support for far-right candidate Marine Le Pen in upcoming French elections; Le Pen is supported by Putin and promises to remove France from the EU, a long-term goal for Putin. Le Pen had also visited Trump Tower in January, according to AP and Politico.

    May 10, 2017 — Secretary of State Tillerson meets with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and Ambassador Kislyak and says the U.S. would no longer require Russia to unfreeze the construction of an American consulate in St. Petersburgbefore considering handing back seized Russian diplomatic compounds in Maryland and New York as part of the Obama sanctions for election interference. The statement represented a reversal of the position staked out two days prior by Undersecretary of State Thomas Shannon, the Washington Post reports.

    May 10, 2017 — During an Oval Office meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and Ambassador Kislyak, Trump tells the Russian officials that he had fired the “nut job” FBI director (James Comey) who was investigating Russian election interference, according to the New York Times. Trump also says he had faced “great pressure” because of Russia, which had now been relieved. Additionally, Trump discloses highly classified information to the Russian officials. The intelligence was provided by Israel, which had not authorized the U.S. to share it, according to the Washington Post. The intelligence centered on Syrian extremist bomb-making plans, and was obtained in part through highly classified cyber operations, the disclosure of which “infuriated” Israeli officials, according to the New York Times. Israel subsequently changes its intelligence sharing protocols with the United States. No U.S. press are allowed into the Oval Office meeting, but Trump does allow TASS, the Russian state-owned agency, according to the Washington Post. Trump does not disclose to the press that Kislyak attended the meeting until TASS publishes photographs showing him in the room; the White House releasefollowing the meeting only mentions Lavrov. In a later interview, National Security Advisor McMaster refuses to confirm that Russian interference was discussed, even when asked directly about it.

    May 10, 2017 — Following the meeting with Trump, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov tells TASS: “At present, our dialogue is not as politicized as it used to be during Obama’s presidency. The Trump administration, including the President himself and the Secretary of State, are people of action who are willing to negotiate.”

    May 25 – 26, 2017 — Arriving in Europe with Trump, top White House economic advisor Gary Cohn tells reporters that the U.S. is “looking at” the future of sanctions on Russia. When pressed on what the current U.S. position is, he says: “Right now we don’t have a position.” The following day, Cohn counters that statement, saying the U.S. will not ease sanctions on Russia and, “if anything, we would probably look to get tougher.”

    May 25, 2017 — In Europe, Trump chastises NATO leaders for their “chronic underpayments” to the alliance and fails to reaffirm U.S. commitment to Article 5 – the collective defense clause of the NATO agreement – promising only to “never forsake the friends that stood by our side” in the wake of Sept. 11 (a statement later labelled by the administration as an affirmation of Article 5). According to Politico, several Trump advisors, including National Security Advisor McMaster, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, are surprised by the omission, having endeavored to include language supporting Article 5 in Trump’s remarks prior to the summit. Additionally, National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton says Russia was not discussed in a larger meeting between American and European officials, but that he could not speak for a meeting involving just Trump, President of the European Council Donald Tusk, and President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker. Tusk later says he is “not 100 percent sure” he and Trump share a “common position, common opinion, about Russia,” according to the New York Times.

    May 26, 2017 — At a political rally the day after the Brussels meeting, German Chancellor Angela Merkel says: “The times in which we could rely fully on others — they are somewhat over. This is what I experienced in the last few days. We Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands,” implying that Europe could no longer rely on a close alliance with the U.S.

    May 30, 2017 — In a press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is asked about Trump’s reaction to Angela Merkel’s comments implying Europe could no longer rely on the U.S. He responds that Europe, “working in friendship with the U.S., the U.K., Russia, and other partners,” is precisely “what the President called for.” (May 30 press briefing). Trump reacts to Merkel’s comments on Twitter: “We have a MASSIVE trade deficit with Germany, plus they pay FAR LESS than they should on NATO & military. Very bad for U.S. This will change.”

              American Migration: Exploring Where People Move Across America      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Just a few years ago, experts indicated Americans (especially young Americans) were more interested in a different lifestyle than previous generations. Instead of owning a house in the suburbs, the new American dream consisted of renting an apartment in the city.

    Recently, though, Americans of all ages have begun to leave major metropolitan areas like New York City and Los Angeles. Over the last five years, population growth in big cities has shrunk, and people are packing up and moving again.

    But where are they going now? We analyzed census data from the last five years to explore the counties and states where the most people are putting down roots. Let's take a look.




































    Living just a train ride away from Manhattan or a few hours from the Santa Monica Pier or Golden Gate Bridge might sound like the life—and for some people, it is—but people may now be looking elsewhere to settle down.

    This graphic helps illustrate which U.S. states have seen the highest net migration, both in and out, between 2011 and 2016. As you can see, states in the Northeast saw a larger negative net migration, while Southern states had a strong influx of newcomers.

    Additionally, states with some of the most popular metropolitan areas, including New York, California, and Illinois, had substantial negative net migration as well.




































    "There's no place like home" is meant to convey that even when you live somewhere else, you'll always have a certain fondness for your home. That is unless you can find someplace better.

    From the data, we learned there was actually quite a lot of back and forth between state borders. While a majority of people moving to the West Coast (including Utah, Washington, and Oregon) came from California, people from these states typically relocated to California as well. Similarly, people living in states like New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Louisiana generally moved from Texas, but people from these same states were also more likely to relocate to Texas.

    It's no wonder, though, states like Texas and California continue to be popular destinations considering their successful employment rates. Of course, some states also come with a fairly hefty price tag. California and New York may have great job markets, but they also have the highest costs of living in the U.S. Looking to buy a home in California? The median home price is over $537,000—compared to roughly $213,000 across the country.




































    So if some states are losing residents in droves, where are they going?

    For New Yorkers looking to leave behind the cold winters, high costs of living, and stagnant wages, there's only one place to go: Florida. With its world-famous beaches and low personal income tax rate, Florida was the most popular destination state for people leaving states like New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.

    Even Californians are leaving the West Coast for Southern hospitality. In the past five years, an average of over 25,000 people left California for Texas. The tech industry has been relatively successful in certain parts of Texas, but unlike California, you won't have to give up the majority of your salary to afford rent.

    Nevada, Arizona, and Oregon were other popular destinations for people looking to relocate from California. While Florida certainly sees its fair share of new residents, more than 9,400 people have left Florida to call Texas home since 2011.




































    The sunshine and celebrity sightings might be nice, but it costs a lot of money to live in Los Angeles. Where the average rent for a one-bedroom apartment is over $2,000, buying a home can set you back an average of $740,000, and even frugal spenders should expect to spend $500 or more a month on groceries. The cost of living might also help to explain why nearly 6,900 people have left Los Angeles for Clark County, Nevada.

    Every year, thousands of people give up their daily commutes on the 405 for the dry heat of Nevada, home to the University of Nevada, Mesquite, Boulder City, and Las Vegas. In Clark County, the median home price is less than $203,000, and a positive job growth means there's plenty of opportunity for those looking to escape the big city life.

    In Cook County, Illinois (the second most populated county in the U.S. after Los Angeles and home to Chicago), almost 5,600 people have left for Lake County, Indiana.

    Thousands of people have also decided to leave Washington, D.C. Whether it's the congested roadways, cost of living, or job opportunities, many have made their way to Prince George's or Montgomery counties in Maryland from D.C.




































    In some cases, people have left areas like California, New York, and Washington, D.C., almost as fast as they've moved into them. Only a few states have seen a much faster exodus than growth.

    Between 2011 and 2016, nearly 11 percent of Alaskan residents moved out of state, although there was less than 6 percent growth to replace their presence. This marks the first time in decades that Alaska's population has shrunk, further compounding the state's economic strife. Since 2012, over 29,000 more people have moved from than moved to Alaska, and nearby states like Washington and California have become much more attractive to residents.

    However, many states are seeing the opposite effect. Despite the expense, more people moved to than from California between 2011 and 2016, New York saw hardly any change in its population, and a higher percentage of people moved to than from Washington, D.C., over the same period.




































    Millennials are shaking things up. Whether it's the way they shop, eat, or approach money, young Americans aren't following in the footsteps of generations past—and that even includes their jobs.

    Studies have shown millennials aren't afraid to do two things uncommon for older generations: jump from job to job and move from place to place. Considering relocating appeals to young employees, it's no wonder the highest percentages of people crossing state borders were millennials.

    Seven percent of people aged 18 to 19 moved between states from 2011 to 2016. The next largest moving age groups were between 20 and 24 and 25 to 29. But where did they go? States like California and Florida were more likely to be the new homes of Americans aged 70 to 74, while young movers were more inclined to move to states like Utah, Wyoming, Alaska, and Illinois.

    Coming or going?

    When it comes to deciding where you want to live, there are many factors to consider aside from the location. As we found, the cost of living, job market, and industry trends likely play an important role in whether Americans pick up and move. Thousands of people do it every year though, including New Yorkers leaving the Northeast for Florida and Californians relocating to Nevada.

    Methodology

    Using the U.S. Census Bureau County-to-County Migration Flows data, we analyzed where people moved to and from across the United States. We utilized the 2011-2015 Migration Flows data, which are the most up to date at the time of this writing. We looked at net migration unless otherwise stated, which shows the net gain or loss for a location-to-location flow. This is not indicative of the number of people who left the location, though. Since Census data relies solely on estimates, the figures presented above may not be inclusive of all migration.
