          Calls to 'abolish billionaires' raise eyebrows, but they've been a long time coming      Cache   Translate Page

  • A New York Times editorial titled "Abolish Billionaires" introduced many readers to an increasingly strong rallying cry on the American left.
  • Progressive politicians are calling for significantly increased taxes on the rich to counteract exceptionally high levels of wealth inequality in the US.
  • While there may be eyebrow-raising rhetoric around these policies, they aren't radical.
  • This article is part of Business Insider's ongoing series on "Better Capitalism."

For the first time on a large scale, Americans are debating whether to allow the existence of billionaires.

On Thursday, The New York Times published columnist Farhad Manjoo's "It's high time we abolish billionaires" above the fold on the front page of its print edition. While Manjoo is far from the first person to articulate the idea — see freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's call for a 70% tax rate for income above $10 million or Sen. Elizabeth Warren's call for a 3% wealth tax for fortunes above $1 billion — the unequivocal rallying cry was something different for the paper of record.

The ensuing arguments about his piece were about what you'd expect: ad hominem attacks and the pitting of capitalism against socialism. A Fox News panel called Manjoo "an idiot" and dismissed the critique of inequality as an attack on capitalism. Readers raised examples of "good billionaires."

Democrats have been arguing for years now about the value of socialism, but as Ocasio-Cortez's policy adviser Dan Riffle — known for his Twitter handle "Every Billionaire is a Policy Failure" — alluded to in a tweet, even if AOC, Sen. Bernie Sanders, or Warren are too radical for you, just look at what Trump-appointed Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell is saying.

"We want prosperity to be widely shared. We need policies to make that happen," Powell said on Wednesday, according to the Washington Post. "The U.S. lags now in mobility. And that's not our self-image as a country, nor is it where we want to be. ... We have some work to do to make sure that the prosperity we do achieve is widely spread."

Regardless of an ideological lens, there's a growing consensus: The United States needs a course correction, and decreasing inequality is crucial.

The rich are clearly getting richer

The French economist Thomas Piketty wrote that, "the incomes of the top 1% collectively made up 11% of national income in 1980, but now constitute above 20% of national income, while the 20% of US national income that was attributable to the bottom 50% in 1980 has fallen to just 12% today."

Additionally, he wrote, "while average pre-tax income for the bottom 50% has stagnated at around $16,000 since 1980, the top 1% has experienced 300% growth in their incomes to approximately $1,340,000 in 2014. This has increased the average earnings differential between the top 1% and the bottom 50% from 27 times in 1980 to 81 times today."

It's not wild, then, to call the moment we're in America's "second Gilded Age," referring to the post-Civil War era of robber barons and industry, where the wealthy kept living better and the poor kept getting worse.

Occupy Wall Street remained relatively small in the wake of the financial crisis, but it did make income and wealth inequality, the language of the 99% and the 1%, a prime topic of discussion. Populist sentiment increased throughout the country, and Vermont's democratic-socialist senator and New York's celebrity real estate billionaire did better in the 2016 election than anyone predicted. The latter, Donald Trump, became president and right-wing rhetoric won, but it also brought with it standard conservative policies, like tax cuts for the rich.

'Abolishing billionaires' isn't as radical as it seems

In his article in the Times and during a followup on Twitter, Manjoo proved to be less into the notion of going so far as to virtually capping how much money Americans could make — not even Ocasio-Cortez has advocated for that —but he is in support of significantly higher taxes on the rich. And you don't have to be a radical for that. There have been many polls that show the majority of Americans at this point are in favor of the same thing.

While "abolish billionaires" is an eye-catching phrase with radical implications, raising taxes to pre-1980s levels is certainly not radical, said Stephanie Sterling, vice president of advocacy and and policy at the Roosevelt Institute.

Sterling told Business Insider that questioning the role of billionaires in our society "is an important contribution to the debate," because it's focusing on structural changes that need to take place, to keep extreme wealth from harming the economy.

What the country needs, she said, is "robust antitrust policy, meaningful limits on stock buybacks, much higher tax rates, and the meaningful restoration of the ability to form and join unions." If getting riled up about billionaires leads voters to elect officials who support those policies, that will successfully correct for what she considers to be the mistakes of the past 40 years.

"I think we're all passengers in a billionaire hijacking," author and critic Anand Giridharadas told Business Insider about how the US got to a boiling point. "We were all drugged on the plane, and these guys are now terrified in the cockpit because they're realizing that in the back there we just woke up."

The billionaires themselves are taking sides

Potential presidential candidates and fellow billionaires Howard Schultz and Michael Bloomberg are not fans of Ocasio-Cortez's call for a 70% tax rate for income above $10 million or Warren's call for a 3% wealth tax for fortunes above $1 billion, and have used phrases like "un-American" and referred to chaos in Venezuela as proof of where these policies would lead.

Investor and progressive activist Nick Hanauer, however, saw this coming. Hanauer, whose fortune must approach $1 billion considering he signed Warren Buffett and Bill Gates' Giving Pledge, famously wrote in Politico a few years ago that "the pitchforks are coming."

He told Business Insider that he's been seriously considering the notion that every billionaire is a policy failure, saying "there can be no doubt that the thrust of the argument is correct — that in a country where so many people are barely getting by, or not getting by at all, an economy that mints billionaires is structurally deficient. There is no reasonable moral or practical justification for these disparities in wealth and income."

Hanauer noted that even with significantly higher taxes, America's wealthiest would remain on top, and their buying power would remain relative.

"I also feel strongly that the Neoliberal contention that me getting immensely wealthy does not harm you, and that your objection to it is just petty jealousy is also wrong," he said. "The richer the rich get, the farther apart the rungs of opportunity are stretched. An economy dominated by a few people with infinite wealth is characterized by arms races for status that benefit no one and harm most people."

U.S. evangelicals, generally supportive of President Trump, are breaking sharply with him over his planned Syria pullout, saying the move will leave Syrian Christians vulnerable to attack. Among the groups criticizing Trump's Syria plan is the Family Research Council , a conservative evangelical organization with a mission of advancing "faith, family, and freedom in public policy and the culture from a Christian worldview." In the past, the group has actively supported Christians overseas who face persecution. In a statement on its website , two senior officials of the organization wrote that a withdrawal of U.S. troops from northern Syria could put Syrian Christians "in mortal danger" and deal "an incalculable blow ... to our reputation as a supporter of religious freedom worldwide.

          Ocasio-Cortez adviser lies to Tucker Carlson about 'Green New Deal.' Now, he's walking back his claims.      Cache   Translate Page      


An adviser to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) appeared on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show Friday, where he appeared to lie straight to Carlson's face about the infamous Green New Deal.

What happened?

When questioned about the Green New Deal's proposal to guarantee "economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work," Cornell University law professor Robert Hockett told Carlson such a provision does not actually appear in Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal.

Carlson asked: "Why would we ever pay people who are 'unwilling to work?'"

Hockett responded: "Uh...I...we never would, right? And AOC has never said anything like that. I think you're referring to some sort of document that...some doctored document that somebody other than us has been circulating."

Carlson responded by sarcastically "thanking" the professor for correcting him, laughing at the "ridiculous proposal."

But what's the truth?

The segment generated a lot conversation on social media after a Media Matters researcher flagged the segment, claiming Hockett "debunk[s] all the conservative media lies" about the Green New Deal.

However, archived versions of the Green New Deal FAQ page — it was removed from Ocasio-Cortez's website after generating widespread mockery and scorn — show the Green New Deal does, in fact, guarantee "economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work."

Read archived versions of the Green New Deal's FAQ page for yourself here and here.

What did Hockett say Saturday?

In an email to the Daily Caller News Foundation, Hockett conceded that he was wrong.

It appears there was more than one document being discussed yesterday, only one of which I had heard about with any definiteness by last evening after a long day of media appearances – namely, the one referred to by the Congresswoman in her tweet. I regret that we seem unknowingly to have ended up speaking about different documents for a minute during our longer and otherwise "on-the-same-page" conversation last night.

Still, video of allegeding Hockett debunked false claims about the Green New Deal continue to circulate on social media.


          Netflix pays whopping $10 million for documentary about Ocasio-Cortez's political campaign      Cache   Translate Page      


Netflix has paid a record-breaking $10 million for rights to a Sundance Film Festival documentary about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-N.Y.), the Daily Mail reported.

What's the perspective?

The film-streaming company won the rights for the film, "Knock Down the House," during a heated auction on Wednesday, according to Deadline.com. The news outlet called the amount Netflix paid the largest documentary sale from a film festival.

The film follows Ocasio-Cortez as she ran her 2018 campaign for a seat in the House of Representatives. On Thursday, it won the prestigious Sundance Festival Favorite Award in a competition against 120 other films that were screened at the festival.

Others that competed for the rights to "Knock Down the House" included Amazon, Hulu, NEON, and Focus. Amazon was not likely a good fit because Ocasio-Cortez was critical of the deal the online giant made to build its headquarters in New York City, near her 14th district, Deadline reported.

In the film, director Rachel Lears follows Ocasio-Cortez and three other Democratic politicians: Cori Bush, Amy Vilela, and Paula Jean Swearengin.

Bush, who lost in the 2018 race for Missouri's s 1st congressional district in the U.S. House, is running again in the 2020 election.

Vilela ran in 2018 and lost as a Democratic candidate for Nevada's 4th congressional district seat in the House.

And Swearengin ran for the West Virginia's Senate seat and lost in the 2018 primary.

At age 29, Ocasio-Cortez became the youngest women ever to be elected to Congress. She is also known for writing the Green New Deal proposal that was announced this week. Ocasio-Cortez claims the plan would guarantee every American family a job with a livable wage, paid vacations, and "retirement security." A livable wage would also be paid to people who are "unwilling to work," Fox News reported.

Also under the plan, the so-called socialist Democrat also wants to abolish air travel, reduce dependence on fossil fuels and replace and every building in America so it meets an energy efficiency code.

Anything else?

"Knock Down the House" began as a kickstarter project and its filmmakers raised $28,111 to launch the project.

Netflix also purchased rights to the documentary "American Factory," for $3 million. That film follows a Chinese billionaire as he opens a factory in Ohio and clashes with working-class Americans.

          Texas City Councilman Calls Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez A 'Bimbo' After She Criticizes Trump      Cache   Translate Page      

A Texas elected official was roundly slammed after he called Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) a “bimbo” for criticizing President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address.

Ocasio-Cortez apparently triggered the ire of Republican Scott Dunn, member of the City Council of Richardson, near Dallas, when she responded to GOP criticism that she wasn’t enthusiastic enough during Trump’s speech. She declared in a tweet: “Why should I be ‘spirited and warm’ for this embarrassment of a #SOTU?”

Dunn tweeted: “The embarrassment is to have bimbos like you with nothing between your ear[s].”

After major blowback, Dunn deleted the tweet — and apologized. By Saturday his entire account was gone.

The New York Daily News reported that Dunn posted an apology Friday on his Facebook page — which has also since vanished. 

The words I used were offensive,” Dunn reportedly wrote. “I am responsible for my own words and actions. I apologize to anyone who finds what I said offensive.”

Dunn told The Dallas Morning News that he had attacked Ocasio-Cortez “in defense of the president” and his speech. His Facebook page disappeared after several people who responded to his apology questioned its sincerity, according to the newspaper.

Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t responded to Dunn’s insult.

Dunn was attacked for his comments on social media and by a former City Council member. Richardson Mayor Paul Voelker said in a statement that he was “extremely disappointed and embarrassed” by Dunn’s comments. “I condemn the description of any woman in this manner as clearly inconsistent with Richardson’s values,” he added.

Republican political strategist and campaign consultant Ed Rollins last month called Ocasio-Cortez a “little girl” with a big mouth, and Twitter trolls relentlessly attack her appearance.

Trump slammed Megyn Kelly during the presidential campaign as a “bimbo” in a retweet after the then-Fox News host grilled him at a candidate debate about his insults against women, whom he had called “fat pigs,” “dogs,” “slobs” and “disgusting animals.”

          Donald Trump’s Biggest Cheerleaders At Fox News Are Seeing Big Drops In Ratings And Advertising Revenue      Cache   Translate Page      

Donald Trump and Sean Hannity appear together for an interview.

Backing Donald Trump apparently isn’t as profitable as it once was, as the president’s biggest backers at Fox News are now learning.

Recent ratings numbers and advertising revenue shows that the personalities on the right-leaning network, who have been Trump’s biggest supporters, have seen sharp declines across the board, including some dramatic drops for primetime programming. As the Wrap recently noted, viewer boycotts against Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham have been particularly hard on the network.

The report noted that Ingraham’s mocking of Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg and Carlson’s controversial statements about immigrants have sparked massive backlash, leading to a total loss of $18 million in advertising revenue for the network as advertisers back out.

          Former Green Beret facing murder charge for Afghan killing      Cache   Translate Page      

In the largest battle in the history of the U.S. war in Afghanistan, Mathew Golsteyn watched to see if the man he believed was responsible for killing two U.S. Marines was coming his way.

Golsteyn, a captain and Green Beret soldier at the time, said he had taken up an ambush position in the Taliban stronghold of Marja when U.S. forces released the man, a suspected Taliban bombmaker known as Rasoul.

What happened next is at the center of an Army investigation that has stretched years, resulting in a murder charge against Golsteyn in December.

Golsteyn didn’t know whether the suspected insurgent, who was unarmed at the time, would walk in his direction. But if he did, to Golsteyn it meant he was going back to insurgent activities and could be legally targeted.

“If [he goes[ any other direction of the 360 that you have available to you but mine, and he doesn’t meet me,” Golsteyn said. “He had been released, and are you going to go back to what you were doing? Or are you going to go somewhere else? If it had been me, this guy’s a— would have beaten feet in a completely different direction.”

The incident first came under scrutiny by the Army in October 2011, the same year Golsteyn was awarded a Silver Star for valor in different actions. Golsteyn said he had planned to join the CIA and go to Iraq in 2012, and in a polygraph test for the CIA he said he had killed an unarmed man and burned the body.

The case has become a cause célèbre among some conservative and veterans groups, and it caught the attention of President Donald Trump late last year after Golsteyn’s wife, Julie, appeared on Fox News. In a Dec. 16 tweet, the president pledged to review the case “at the request of many” and called Golsteyn a “a U.S. Military hero.”

The case also has re-energized long-running arguments about how U.S. troops should behave in combat while guided by rules that their enemies often do not follow, and how the military should treat a war hero if he is suspected of war crimes.

Golsteyn, 38, has rarely discussed the case in public, leaving it to his wife, his civilian attorney Phillip Stackhouse and other supporters. But in a two-hour interview with the Washington Post, he defended his actions and lambasted Army investigators for how they characterized his actions in official reports. Golsteyn said he is grateful for the president’s attention and would welcome a pardon but cannot expect it.

“It’s not an insignificant thing living every day knowing that you’re an enemy of the state,” said Golsteyn, who was recalled to active duty as a major to face the charge. “We are playing for a court-martial. It would be pretty dangerous to be playing for a pardon, and then there is no pardon and we have to go to court-martial.”

The Army has declined to comment on how it has handled Golsteyn’s case. A spokesman, Lt. Col. Loren Bymer, said Golsteyn was charged after new evidence emerged, and an Article 32 hearing is scheduled for March 14 at Fort Bragg in North Carolina to assess whether the case should proceed to a trial.

“As an active law enforcement matter, the U.S. Army cannot comment on or release information related to the case,” Bymer said.

Golsteyn met with The Post in Washington at the headquarters of the International Association of Fire Fighters, a union for which Golsteyn serves as chief of operations. He took the job while preparing to move on from Army life, settling in northern Virginia in August 2016, marrying Julie in May 2017 and having a son with her last year. He also has a 12-year-old-son from a previous marriage.

In Golsteyn’s office at work hangs military memorabilia from his career and a photo of him shaking President George W. Bush’s hand in 2002 as a new graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York. Golsteyn deployed to Iraq in 2003 and Afghanistan in 2009 after undergoing heart surgery in 2006 stemming from an accident at the Special Forces Underwater Operations School near Key West, Florida.

In January 2010, Golsteyn was deployed to Afghanistan with the 3rd Special Forces Group. As commander of Operational Detachment Alpha 3121, he would lead not only his unit but also about 30 Marines and 300 Afghan soldiers in a major offensive against the Taliban involving a total of 15,000 coalition and Afghan troops.

The Battle of Marja would prove to be far more violent than other missions.

For days, Golsteyn and his troops faced hours of gunfights. Explosives laced the city, and he and other service members were frustrated with rules of engagement that were designed to prevent civilian casualties but limited how aggressively they could target the Taliban.

On Feb. 18, a booby-trapped garage door exploded, killing Sgt. Jeremy McQueary, 27, and Lance Cpl. Larry Johnson, 19, Marine combat engineers deployed alongside Golsteyn’s unit. After a search, Afghan forces detained a man with bombmaking material. But Golsteyn said U.S. forces were told they could not keep any detainees because of the amount of resources doing so would require.

Golsteyn targeted the suspected bombmaker in circumstances that are still mysterious and central to the case. With a criminal charge pending, he declined to answer some questions, including how long the man had been free before he was killed, whether anyone else was with Golsteyn at the time and whether he reported the killing to anyone afterward.

“He probably had anywhere from between …” Golsteyn said of Rasoul, before stopping mid-sentence.

“To be honest, I don’t know because I was out [away from the base]. He had a long walk,” Golsteyn continued. “He had a long time to figure out where he was going in life.”

Rachel VanLandingham, a military justice expert at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles, said the specifics of how Golsteyn targeted the man are central to the case. If Rasoul showed hostile intent and Golsteyn used authorized tactics to target him, it would appear he committed no wrongdoing, she said. However, if he “was in actuality lying in wait for this guy,” she said, the situation is different.

“In other words, we may have a legitimate killing based on individual self-defense in response to conduct that demonstrates hostile intent, or we could have premeditated murder,” said VanLandingham, who once served as the chief of international law for U.S. Central Command. “Context of the ambush is everything.”

Golsteyn acknowledged disposing of the man’s body after the shooting and said it was not uncommon for U.S. troops to burn remains that went unclaimed in the war. In his earlier statements to the CIA, he said a couple of other soldiers were involved.

“We had bodies everywhere from aircraft fire, sitting in pools of water and we had to, when we came on them, dispose of them,” Golsteyn said. “There is no one to claim them. There was disease and pestilence, and on top of that it’s a source of booby traps and a huge hazard to our force.”

The case has been clouded by characterizations of Golsteyn’s actions in Army investigative reports.

An agent with U.S. Criminal Investigation Command who watched a recording of Golsteyn’s polygraph test wrote in one early report that Golsteyn told his interviewers that he and one other U.S. soldier had taken the deceased Afghan “back to his residence and assassinated him.” But Army officials conceded at a 2015 administrative hearing known as a Board of Inquiry that Golsteyn did not say that, Golsteyn said. The Army declined to comment.

A panel of three officers voted 2 to 1 that the service had not substantiated that Golsteyn violated the law of armed conflict, but it found he had demonstrated conduct unbecoming of an officer.

The Army initially closed its investigation in November 2013 without finding enough evidence to prosecute Golsteyn, even when offering immunity to his fellow soldiers. It pursued a number of administrative punishments instead, including the suspension of his security clearance, the revocation of his Silver Star and Special Forces tab, and the issuing of a career-ending memorandum of reprimand.

The Silver Star was awarded in 2011 for repeatedly braving enemy fire on Feb. 20, 2010, two days after the Marines were killed. Golsteyn was credited with braving fire during a four-hour battle in which he trudged through mud, returned fire, helped an Afghan soldier who had been shot and coordinated airstrikes.

The Army reopened its investigation in 2016, after Golsteyn appeared on Fox News and acknowledged killing a bombmaker in an interview with Bret Baier.

“There’s limits on how long you can hold guys,” Golsteyn said at the time. “You realize quickly that you make things worse. It is an inevitable outcome that people who are cooperating with coalition forces, when identified, will suffer some terrible torture or be killed.”

Golsteyn told The Post that he has found the Army’s investigation dishonest, and he can no longer stay silent about it.

“I spent half of this hell quiet, and if there is anything I know, it’s that I will not get any semblance of due process – any ability to defend myself – if it’s not in public,” he said. “Because it’s the only thing these guys respond to. They do not obey their own rules.”

"Extra" co-host A.J. Calloway has been suspended by Warner Bros. Television following multiple accusations of sexual assault, the studio confirms on Saturday.

Calloway's suspension was first reported Saturday by The Hollywood Reporter and preempted an upcoming report from the outlet in which several women accused him of sexual misconduct.

Calloway did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment.

"Upon becoming aware of allegations of sexual misconduct against A.J. Calloway, we began an internal review to determine whether there had been any misconduct by Mr. Calloway on 'Extra' and whether any employee of the show had been the victim of any such misconduct," a Warner Bros. representative said in a statement Saturday. "To date, we have found nothing to suggest that Mr. Calloway has ever engaged in workplace misconduct."

The rep added: "In light of additional allegations brought to our attention, we are expanding our ongoing inquiries, and Mr. Calloway has been suspended pending further review. We take such allegations very seriously and are committed to doing everything we can to ensure a safe and inclusive workplace for all of our employees."

The decision comes after multiple women have accused Calloway of sexual misconduct in the last year. Last month, two anonymous women told The Daily Beast the TV personality had forced himself on them in separate incidents.

Neither woman was named in the report, though the first of the two accusers filed an "aggravated sexual assault" complaint with the West Orange Police Department in New Jersey in December, according to TDB. No further details were provided regarding the reported assault.

The other woman, identified in the story under the pseudonym Talia, said she first came into contact with Calloway in 2011 and was sexually assaulted by the "Extra" co-host at his house after giving in to his repeated advances.

"I just remember trying to push him off of me, and this went on for 40 minutes straight," she told the Daily Beast, saying that she was insistent throughout that she would not have sex with him. "Me attempting to push him off of me and fighting to keep him from taking my clothes off. Eventually he got tired, and I think it's because he was so intoxicated-it was wearing him out."

The woman said Calloway then began to masturbate and "kept trying to put my hand on his penis and eventually he ejaculated on my hands."

In a statement to the Daily Beast at the time, Calloway's lawyer said, "We cannot comment on vague secondhand allegations beyond that Mr. Calloway firmly denies any claim that he assaulted someone."

Calloway was previously accused of sexual assault by activist Sil Lai Abrams in a report published by THR last June. Recounting a story first published in her 2007 memoir in which she identified her abuser only as a "B-list celebrity," Abrams said Calloway forced her to touch his genitals and attempted to force himself on her when they met in 2006.

He was arrested, but the case was dismissed on procedural grounds. Calloway maintained that the allegations were not true.

          Calls to 'abolish billionaires' raise eyebrows, but they've been a long time coming      Cache   Translate Page      

alexandria ocasio cortez

  • A New York Times editorial titled "Abolish Billionaires" introduced many readers to an increasingly strong rallying cry on the American left.
  • Progressive politicians are calling for significantly increased taxes on the rich to counteract exceptionally high levels of wealth inequality in the US.
  • While there may be eyebrow-raising rhetoric around these policies, they aren't radical.
  • This article is part of Business Insider's ongoing series on "Better Capitalism."

For the first time on a large scale, Americans are debating whether to allow the existence of billionaires.

On Thursday, The New York Times published columnist Farhad Manjoo's "It's high time we abolish billionaires" above the fold on the front page of its print edition. While Manjoo is far from the first person to articulate the idea — see freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's call for a 70% tax rate for income above $10 million or Sen. Elizabeth Warren's call for a 3% wealth tax for fortunes above $1 billion — the unequivocal rallying cry was something different for the paper of record.

The ensuing arguments about his piece were about what you'd expect: ad hominem attacks and the pitting of capitalism against socialism. A Fox News panel called Manjoo "an idiot" and dismissed the critique of inequality as an attack on capitalism. Readers raised examples of "good billionaires."

Democrats have been arguing for years now about the value of socialism, but as Ocasio-Cortez's policy adviser Dan Riffle — known for his Twitter handle "Every Billionaire is a Policy Failure" — alluded to in a tweet, even if AOC, Sen. Bernie Sanders, or Warren are too radical for you, just look at what Trump-appointed Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell is saying.

"We want prosperity to be widely shared. We need policies to make that happen," Powell said on Wednesday, according to the Washington Post. "The U.S. lags now in mobility. And that's not our self-image as a country, nor is it where we want to be. ... We have some work to do to make sure that the prosperity we do achieve is widely spread."

Regardless of an ideological lens, there's a growing consensus: The United States needs a course correction, and decreasing inequality is crucial.

The rich are clearly getting richer

The French economist Thomas Piketty wrote that, "the incomes of the top 1% collectively made up 11% of national income in 1980, but now constitute above 20% of national income, while the 20% of US national income that was attributable to the bottom 50% in 1980 has fallen to just 12% today."

Additionally, he wrote, "while average pre-tax income for the bottom 50% has stagnated at around $16,000 since 1980, the top 1% has experienced 300% growth in their incomes to approximately $1,340,000 in 2014. This has increased the average earnings differential between the top 1% and the bottom 50% from 27 times in 1980 to 81 times today."

It's not wild, then, to call the moment we're in America's "second Gilded Age," referring to the post-Civil War era of robber barons and industry, where the wealthy kept living better and the poor kept getting worse.

Occupy Wall Street remained relatively small in the wake of the financial crisis, but it did make income and wealth inequality, the language of the 99% and the 1%, a prime topic of discussion. Populist sentiment increased throughout the country, and Vermont's democratic-socialist senator and New York's celebrity real estate billionaire did better in the 2016 election than anyone predicted. The latter, Donald Trump, became president and right-wing rhetoric won, but it also brought with it standard conservative policies, like tax cuts for the rich.

'Abolishing billionaires' isn't as radical as it seems

In his article in the Times and during a followup on Twitter, Manjoo proved to be less into the notion of going so far as to virtually capping how much money Americans could make — not even Ocasio-Cortez has advocated for that —but he is in support of significantly higher taxes on the rich. And you don't have to be a radical for that. There have been many polls that show the majority of Americans at this point are in favor of the same thing.

While "abolish billionaires" is an eye-catching phrase with radical implications, raising taxes to pre-1980s levels is certainly not radical, said Stephanie Sterling, vice president of advocacy and and policy at the Roosevelt Institute.

Sterling told Business Insider that questioning the role of billionaires in our society "is an important contribution to the debate," because it's focusing on structural changes that need to take place, to keep extreme wealth from harming the economy.

What the country needs, she said, is "robust antitrust policy, meaningful limits on stock buybacks, much higher tax rates, and the meaningful restoration of the ability to form and join unions." If getting riled up about billionaires leads voters to elect officials who support those policies, that will successfully correct for what she considers to be the mistakes of the past 40 years.

"I think we're all passengers in a billionaire hijacking," author and critic Anand Giridharadas told Business Insider about how the US got to a boiling point. "We were all drugged on the plane, and these guys are now terrified in the cockpit because they're realizing that in the back there we just woke up."

The billionaires themselves are taking sides

Potential presidential candidates and fellow billionaires Howard Schultz and Michael Bloomberg are not fans of Ocasio-Cortez's call for a 70% tax rate for income above $10 million or Warren's call for a 3% wealth tax for fortunes above $1 billion, and have used phrases like "un-American" and referred to chaos in Venezuela as proof of where these policies would lead.

Investor and progressive activist Nick Hanauer, however, saw this coming. Hanauer, whose fortune must approach $1 billion considering he signed Warren Buffett and Bill Gates' Giving Pledge, famously wrote in Politico a few years ago that "the pitchforks are coming."

He told Business Insider that he's been seriously considering the notion that every billionaire is a policy failure, saying "there can be no doubt that the thrust of the argument is correct — that in a country where so many people are barely getting by, or not getting by at all, an economy that mints billionaires is structurally deficient. There is no reasonable moral or practical justification for these disparities in wealth and income."

Hanauer noted that even with significantly higher taxes, America's wealthiest would remain on top, and their buying power would remain relative.

"I also feel strongly that the Neoliberal contention that me getting immensely wealthy does not harm you, and that your objection to it is just petty jealousy is also wrong," he said. "The richer the rich get, the farther apart the rungs of opportunity are stretched. An economy dominated by a few people with infinite wealth is characterized by arms races for status that benefit no one and harm most people."

Una nueva exposición de un museo de Washington muestra a una modelo que interpreta a Ivanka Trump empujando una aspiradora e invita a los espectadores a aventar migajas para que las limpie.

La obra de arte de Jennifer Rubell, titulada “Ivanka aspirando”, se inauguró el 1 de febrero y estará hasta el 17 de febrero en la galería Flashpoint. Se motiva al público a “tirar migajas a la alfombra y ver cómo Ivanka elegantemente aspira el tiradero, sin perder jamás su sonrisa”.

Un gran texto que describe la obra colgado en la pared de la galería describe a Ivanka Trump como una “figura cuyo personaje público incorpora una cómicamente amplia variedad de identidades femeninas: hija, esposa, madre, hermana, modelo, mujer trabajadora, rubia”. Describe el acto de tirar migajas de pan sobre la alfombra para que ella las aspire “sorprendentemente placentero”.



Sin embargo, Ivanka Trump y sus hermanos Donald Trump Jr. y Eric Trump criticaron la exhibición el martes diciendo que es un intento sexista de humillarla.

Eric Trump dijo en el noticiero Fox News que su hermana es una “mujer poderosa que ha hecho más por las mujeres que quizás cualquier otra persona en Washington, D.C.”.

          Trump appeared to joke about the Trail of Tears in a tweet mocking Elizabeth Warren      Cache   Translate Page      

donald trumpAssociated Press/Carolyn Kaster

  • President Donald Trump appeared to joke about the Trail of Tears in a tweet about Elizabeth Warren on Saturday.
  • "See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!" he tweeted.
  • The Trail of Tears genocide forcibly displaced tens of thousands of Native Americans and caused the death of roughly 4,000 in the mid-1800s.
  • Trump has previously used the death of Native Americans to mock Warren, tweeting about the Wounded Knee Massacre in January.

President Donald Trump appeared to joke on Saturday about the Trail of Tears genocide — which forcibly displaced and led to the death of thousands of Native Americans — in a tweet mocking Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

"Today Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to by me as Pocahontas, joined the race for President," he tweeted. "Will she run as our first Native American presidential candidate, or has she decided that after 32 years, this is not playing so well anymore? See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!"

  • A line on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's website supporting "economic security to all those who are unable or unwilling to work" triggered backlash this week and prompted mixed messages from her team about where the line came from.
  • One of Ocasio-Cortez's advisers said on Fox News that the line was from a "doctored" document and that Ocasio-Cortez had never proposed such a policy.
  • But Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff later admitted the webpage was authentic, but that it had been a draft published by mistake. Ocasio-Cortez added there were also doctored versions circulating online.

A line on Rep.

The controversy has given fodder to critics of the Green New Deal legislation, which was unveiled Thursday.

          Trump supporters form human 'wall' along US-Mexico border: 'Build a wall!'      Cache   Translate Page      


Trump supporters advocating for a border wall formed a human barrier Saturday near Sunland Park, New Mexico, and the Ciudad Juarez border in Chihuahua, Mexico.

What happened?

Dozens showed up for the event, carrying American flags, wearing red "Make America Great Again" hats, and chanting "build a wall," and "USA," according to published reports. Some carried signs with sayings like "STOP the drugs destroying our youth."

The group linked arms and lined up along an area where the border fence finishes to create a makeshift continuation of the fence, KFOX-TV reported.

A YouTube video of the demonstration reportedly showed an organizer speaking to the crowd about violence against border patrol agents along the border. Through a megaphone, he asked them if they believe it's right "that these gentlemen have to kiss their families every night potentially it being their last night for them because of this?" The crowd answered: “No!"

The event happened two days ahead of President Donald Trump's rally in El Paso on Monday, which is not far from where the the group gathered. Trump is expected to speak on border security during his 2020 campaign rally at the El Paso County Coliseum. Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott is also expected to attend, according to KFOX.

The human wall may have been prompted by a tweet by the president on Tuesday in which he cited "Tremendous numbers of people are coming up through Mexico in the hopes of flooding our Southern Border."

What is the background?

Congress has sparred with the president over his demands for a $5.7 billion wall along the border. A stalemate over the issue led to a 35-day partial government shutdown. Lawmakers reportedly are finalizing a plan that would cost about $1.6 billion for border security. If Trump accepts their plan, another government shutdown could be avoided.

Trump signed a resolution in January to reopen the government until Feb. 15 so that negotiations on border security could continue.

The president has threatened to declare a national emergency to avoid another shutdown if no agreement is reached by the Feb. 15 deadline.

           Se estanca diálogo para evitar otro cierre gobierno en EU       Cache   Translate Page      

Las negociaciones de los legisladores estadunidenses sobre seguridad fronteriza para evitar otro cierre del gobierno colapsaron por diferencias en políticas de detención a migrantes, informó un senador republicano, Richard Shelby.

"Las negociaciones están estancadas por ahora", afirmó Shelby a "Fox News Sunday". El legislador señaló que esperaba que los negociadores volvieran pronto a la mesa de diálogo.

m{286406}

Los esfuerzos en el Congreso estadunidense para el impasse sobre el financiamiento de la seguridad fronteriza se intensificaron el viernes y se extendieron al fin de semana, con un panel de negociación especial establecido para llegar a un acuerdo el lunes, dijeron legisladores y asesores.

Mick Mulvaney, jefe interino de gabinete de la Casa Blanca, dijo a "Meet the Press" de la NBC que no se podía descartar otro cierre del gobierno federal. "¿El cierre está completamente fuera de la mesa? La respuesta es no". 

Un punto clave ha sido la demanda de los demócratas de financiar menos camas de detención para las personas retenidas por el Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas (ICE). Los republicanos quieren aumentar la cifra como parte de su campaña para acelerar las deportaciones

Shelby dijo que se suspendieron las conversaciones sobre el tema, pero esperaba que los negociadores regresaran pronto a la mesa.

"Espero que podamos salir del tema más tarde en el día o en la mañana", dijo. "Tenemos algunos problemas con los demócratas (...). Ellos quieren un límite (en el número de camas). Nosotros no".

          Government Shutdown Looms As Border Wall Talks Break Down, Again      Cache   Translate Page      

File this under "Who could have seen that coming?"

Just two weeks after the longest government shutdown on record, and following 48 hours of narrative-molding declarations that a border security deal was "imminent" or "expected before the end of the weekend", The Hill and Bloomberg now report that talks to avert a second government shutdown over border wall funding have broken down and Republicans and Democrats have stopped communicating for now.

As of Saturday it seemed that negotiators were homing in on a proposal with border barrier funding of between $1.3 billion and $2 billion, a "person familiar with the talks" told Bloomberg, however the main sticking point - whether Trump's border wall will get the funding the president has been demanding for months - remains as Democrats told GOP negotiators that they won’t agree to spend more than $2 billion on border barriers, well below the $5.7 billion that Trump has called for. In addition, a new issue has roiled the talks: a dispute over the number of beds at immigrant detention centers, an issue that would typically be regarded as a side-note to the broader talks on the level of funding for border security. Democrats want to limit the number of people detained at the border, while Republicans oppose restricting the capacity of detention centers.

“I’ll say 50/50 we’ll get a deal,” Shelby said.  “We’ve got some problems with the Democrats” over funding for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement operations.

According to Republican senator Richard Shelby, the Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman and a key negotiator on President Trump’s demand for a border wall, congressional talks have stalled with Republicans and Democrats yet to reach agreement on how much money should be spent on border barriers, raising the prospect of another government shutdown at week’s end.

"I think the talks are stalled right now. I’m hoping we can get off the dime later today or in the morning because time is ticking away but we’ve got some problems with the Democrats dealing with ICE, that is detaining criminals that come into the U.S. and they want a cap on them. We don’t want a cap on that,” Shelby said on “Fox News Sunday,” referring to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.


In an attempt to downplaying shutdown concerns, earlier on Sunday, Mick Mulvaney, Trump's acting White House chief of staff, said that a shutdown isn’t the most likely option but that he “absolutely cannot” rule it out. "He’s going to do whatever he legally can to secure the border,” Mulvaney said of President Donald Trump on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” one of two scheduled appearances on Sunday talk shows.

"You cannot take a shutdown off the table, and you cannot take $5.7 (billion) off the table,” he said, referring to the level of funds Trump has been demanding for a wall on the U.S.-Mexican border.

Mulvaney also said that Trump will take whatever money Congress agrees to allocate for border barriers, which is likely to be an amount between $1.3 billion and $2 billion, and supplement that by reprograming other federal fines.

“We’ll take as much money as you can give us and then we’ll go off and find the money someplace else, legally, in order to secure that Southern barrier [sic] but this is going to get built with or without Congress,” he said.

Mulvaney spoke as Congressional negotiators continue talks on a security plan that includes some sort of barrier on the border, hoping to complete a deal to avert another government shutdown. It wasn’t fair to say that Trump would sign whatever Congress comes up with, Mulvaney said,

Finally, in what really matters after all, Mulvaney confirmed the level of proposed border wall funding "all over the map."

Which is perhaps what prompted Trump to tweet this yesterday:

And follow up today with more of the same...

Then pointing the blame at Democrats...

Bottom line: another government shutdown looms.

Mick Mulvaney: Trump Will Refuse To Pass Laws If Dems 'Punch Him In The Face' With Investigations

Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney on Sunday suggested that Donald Trump could not work with Democrats on legislation if they "punch him in the face" with investigations.

During an interview on Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace noted that Mulvaney laughed when he viewed a video clip of acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker being disrespectful to House Oversight Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY).

"Go ahead," Wallace encouraged. "People will see you laughing at that."

"Does the president recognize that Congress has an oversight role in addition to its legislative role?" the Fox News host asked.

Mulvaney agreed that "Congress had a right to do oversight," and he insisted that Trump is "not trying to discourage them from doing it."

"What he's saying is, 'Look, you have a choice, we can either work together on legislation or we can spend all our time doing these investigations but you can't do both,'" the acting Chief of Staff said.

"Wait," Wallace interrupted. "You can do both. And presidents have done both plenty of times."

Former Fox News Guest Tiffany Cross Slams 'Half-witted' Hosts For Propping Up Trump's Border Lies

Journalist Tiffany Cross of The Beat DC on Sunday blasted supporters of Donald Trump's border wall as "half-wits."

During a panel discussion about the way Trump demonizes immigrants, MSNBC host Joy Reid asked Cross how Fox News could "keep up the fiction of violence" in border cities like El Paso.

"You've been a guest on Fox News," Reid told Cross. "How does that Earth keep up the fiction of violence when even the sheriff -- they can't even go to a live shot with the sheriff to back to back up their claims?"

"Yeah, I've been on Fox News before and the problem is [Trump is] going on with a half-witted host who has an audience full of half-witted people who have no interest in truth or facts," Cross asserted. "The real national emergency here is, Joy, a sea full of ignorant red MAGA hats who have no type of intellectual curiosity about these things."

"They will take this president's word even if it's at their own peril," she continued, "even when it destroys the country that they claim to love so much, even when devastates children they claim to want to protect, even when it runs contrary to a god they claim to serve."

          Border Security Funding Talks Stalled, Government Shutdown Looms       Cache   Translate Page      
Negotiations to stop another government shutdown have stalled, as lawmakers remain at an impasse over border security. If an agreement on funding the government isn't reached by Friday at midnight, the government could partially shut down again, just three weeks after the longest U.S. government shutdown in history. Republican Sen. Richard Shelby, Chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee told Fox News Sunday he put the odds of a deal at 50-50. "I think the next 24 hours are crucial. We could close some deals, but they've got to be good, to secure our borders," Shelby said. Democratic sources told NPR's Kelsey Snell talks have broken down over how many detention beds for Immigration and Customs Enforcement will be funded through the agreement. Democrats want to limit the number of beds to prevent ICE from aggressively arresting immigrants. President Trump has asked for $5.7 billion to fund a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico. On Sunday Trump tweeted that Democrats "are offering
          ‘Extra’ Co-Host AJ Calloway Suspended After Multiple Sexual Misconduct Accusations      Cache   Translate Page      

“Extra” co-host A.J. Calloway has been suspended by Warner Bros. Television following multiple accusations of sexual assault, the studio confirms on Saturday.

Calloway’s suspension was first reported Saturday by The Hollywood Reporter and preempted an upcoming report from the outlet in which several women accused him of sexual misconduct.

Calloway did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

“Upon becoming aware of allegations of sexual misconduct against A.J. Calloway, we began an internal review to determine whether there had been any misconduct by Mr. Calloway on ‘Extra’ and whether any employee of the show had been the victim of any such misconduct,” a Warner Bros. representative said in a statement Saturday. “To date, we have found nothing to suggest that Mr. Calloway has ever engaged in workplace misconduct.”

The rep added: “In light of additional allegations brought to our attention, we are expanding our ongoing inquiries, and Mr. Calloway has been suspended pending further review. We take such allegations very seriously and are committed to doing everything we can to ensure a safe and inclusive workplace for all of our employees.”

The decision comes after multiple women have accused Calloway of sexual misconduct in the last year. Last month, two anonymous women told The Daily Beast the TV personality had forced himself on them in separate incidents.

Neither woman was named in the report, though the first of the two accusers filed an “aggravated sexual assault” complaint with the West Orange Police Department in New Jersey in December, according to TDB. No further details were provided regarding the reported assault.

The other woman, identified in the story under the pseudonym Talia, said she first came into contact with Calloway in 2011 and was sexually assaulted by the “Extra” co-host at his house after giving in to his repeated advances.

“I just remember trying to push him off of me, and this went on for 40 minutes straight,” she told the Daily Beast, saying that she was insistent throughout that she would not have sex with him. “Me attempting to push him off of me and fighting to keep him from taking my clothes off. Eventually he got tired, and I think it’s because he was so intoxicated-it was wearing him out.”

The woman said Calloway then began to masturbate and “kept trying to put my hand on his penis and eventually he ejaculated on my hands.”

Also Read: Vice Media President Andrew Creighton Steps Down After Sexual Harassment Accusation

In a statement to the Daily Beast at the time, Calloway’s lawyer said, “We cannot comment on vague secondhand allegations beyond that Mr. Calloway firmly denies any claim that he assaulted someone.”

Calloway was previously accused of sexual assault by activist Sil Lai Abrams in a report published by THR last June. Recounting a story first published in her 2007 memoir in which she identified her abuser only as a “B-list celebrity,” Abrams said Calloway forced her to touch his genitals and attempted to force himself on her when they met in 2006.

He was arrested, but the case was dismissed on procedural grounds. Calloway maintained that the allegations were not true.

          Trump carga contra el liderazgo demócrata por ofrecer "poco dinero" para el muro      Cache   Translate Page      

La Prensa

Washington, EEUU.

El presidente estadounidense, Donald Trump, cargó hoy contra el liderazgo demócrata en el Congreso por ofrecer "poco dinero" para la construcción de un muro en la frontera de EE.

UU.

con México, en el marco de las negociaciones para evitar otro cierre parcial administrativo a partir del 15 de febrero.

"No creo que los líderes (demócratas del Congreso) permitan hacer un trato a los demócratas en el Comité Fronterizo.

¡Están ofreciendo muy poco dinero para un muro fronterizo que se necesita desesperadamente!", criticó Trump en su cuenta oficial de Twitter.

Asimismo, Trump lamentó que los demócratas hayan solicitado "de la nada" otra cláusula dentro de estas conversaciones del comité bipartidista formado por miembros de la Cámara Baja y el Senado estadounidenses.

"¡Y ahora, de la nada, quieren un tope (del número de) delincuentes violentos condenados que se mantendrán en detención!", agregó el mandatario, con relación a los inmigrantes indocumentados detenidos por el Servicio de Inmigración y Aduanas (ICE, en sus sigas en inglés) y la Patrulla Fronteriza (CBP, en inglés).

Trump hizo estas afirmaciones después de que su jefe de gabinete interino, Mick Mulvaney, no descartara hoy otro cierre parcial de la Administración en EE.

UU.

a partir del próximo 15 de febrero, fecha límite para que el comité logre un acuerdo sobre los fondos del Departamento de Seguridad Nacional.

"Un cierre de Administración está técnicamente aún sobre la mesa", advirtió en declaraciones al programa "Fox News Sunday" Mulvaney, que recordó que Trump no dará el visto bueno a un pacto que encuentre "inaceptable".

Hace una semana, el propio Trump consideró una "pérdida de tiempo" las negociaciones con los líderes demócratas del Congreso sobre la construcción de un muro en la frontera con México, una polémica medida que volvió a amenazar con llevar igualmente adelante usando poderes presidenciales.

El último cierre parcial del Gobierno, que se inició el pasado 22 de diciembre, dejó paralizada una cuarta parte de la Administración durante 35 días después de que Trump demandara más fondos para la construcción de un muro en la frontera con México.

Finalmente, Trump cedió a la presión popular y firmó un decreto que dotó de fondos hasta el 15 de febrero a la Administración, sin dinero para el muro, permitiendo así su reapertura tras el cierre parcial más largo de la historia de EE.

UU.

Durante estas tres semanas, un comité bipartidista con miembros de la Cámara Baja y del Senado se encuentra negociando una solución para que no se repita otra vez la parálisis parcial.

          Border Security Negotiations in Congress Break Down as Another Shutdown Looms Friday      Cache   Translate Page      

Looks like we’re back at impasse as new questions are emerging over whether congressional negotiators will be able to seal a deal to prevent another government shutdown by the Friday deadline. There was optimism that negotiations on border security would make progress over the weekend to finalize a deal by Monday so lawmakers could vote and prevent yet another government shutdown. But Democrats and Republicans appear to be at an impasse and now aides on both sides are debating whether they need to be considering backstop alternatives to at least temporarily avert a shutdown. Senate Appropriations Chairman Richard Shelby didn’t sound too optimistic Sunday ash he acknowledged talks had stalled. “I’ll say 50/50 we’ll get a deal,” Shelby said on Fox News Sunday. Shelby said that while “we’re hoping we can get there,” he was “not confident” a deal could be reached through the weekend.

Shelby pointed the finger at Democrats for the stalled talks, saying they wanted to put a cap on the number of beds at immigration detention centers. Although negotiators appear to have come close to agreeing on the amount of funding for a border wall, Democrats are reportedly saying they will only agree to more money for the barrier if there is a cap on beds, which Republicans are resisting. “Time is ticking away but we got some problems with the Democrats dealing with ICE,” he said, referring to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Sen. Jon Tester, a Democrat who is one of the key negotiators, sounded a bit more optimistic, saying that while a deal can’t be announced yet, “negotiations are still going on.’ Tester told Fox News Sunday that he has “confidence that hopefully we will get something done very soon.” Meanwhile, White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney made sure to emphasize that a shutdown was still most definitely a possibility. “The government shutdown is technically still on the table,” Mulvaney said on Fox News Sunday. “We do not want it to come to that but that option is still open to the president and will remain so.” Speaking on NBC’s Meet the Press, Mulvaney said President Donald Trump may not have a choice. “Let’s say the hardcore, left wing of the Democrat Party prevails in this negotiation and they put a bill on the president’s desk with, say, zero money for the wall, or $800 million, an absurdly low number. How does he sign that?” Mulvaney said.

President Donald Trump weighed in on the stalled negotiations Sunday, sending out a pair of tweets in which he unsurprisingly pointed the finger at Democrats, who are “offering very little money” for the wall. Trump blamed the Democratic leadership, saying that they were making it difficult for negotiators to make a deal. The president speculated that Democrats may want to shut down the government to take attention away from other issues. “It was a very bad week for the Democrats, with the GREAT economic numbers, The Virginia disaster and the State of the Union address” Trump wrote. “Now, with the terrible offers being made by them to the Border Committee, I actually believe they want a Shutdown. They want a new subject!”

          Shutdown deadline looms as wall negotiations hit a snag      Cache   Translate Page      

WASHINGTON (AP) — As negotiations over a border security hit a snag, the White House on Sunday would not rule out another federal government shutdown even as it signaled a willingness to obtain funding for President Donald Trump's proposed wall by other means.

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, in appearances on NBC's "Meet the Press" and "Fox News Sunday," said "you absolutely cannot" eliminate the possibility of another shutdown on Friday if a deal is not reached over the wall. The White House had asked for $5.7 billion, a figure rejected by the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives, and the mood among bargainers has soured, according to people familiar with the negotiations not authorized to speak publicly about private talks.

"You cannot take a shutdown off the table, and you cannot take $5.7 off the table," Mulvaney told NBC, "but if you end up someplace in the middle, yeah, then what you probably see is the president say, 'Yeah, OK, and I'll go find the money someplace else.'"

A congressional deal seemed to stall even after Mulvaney convened a bipartisan group of lawmakers at Camp David on Friday. While the two sides seemed close to clinching a deal late last week, significant gaps remained and momentum appears to have slowed.

The White House and many Republicans want to push the amount that would be spent for building physical barriers to $2 billion or higher. Democrats have said they will keep that figure below $2 billion, with some saying they support perhaps half that. In addition, Democrats are pushing to reduce the number of apprehended migrants detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a federal agency. Republicans are resisting.

"I think talks are stalled right now," Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., said Sunday on Fox. "I'm not confident we're going to get there."

Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., who appeared on the same program, agreed that "We are not to the point where we can announce a deal."

But Mulvaney did signal that the White House would prefer not to have a repeat of the last shutdown, which stretched more than a month, left more than 800,000 government workers without paychecks, forced a postponement of the State of the Union address and sent Trump's poll numbers tumbling.

As support in his own party began to splinter, Trump surrendered after the shutdown hit 35 days without getting money for the wall.

"The president is going to build the wall. That's our attitude at this point," Mulvaney told Fox. "We'll take as much money as you can give us, and we'll go find the money somewhere else, legally, and build that wall on the southern border, with or without Congress."

The president's supporters have suggested there are executive powers that Trump could use to divert money from the federal budget for wall construction, though it was unclear if they would face challenges in Congress or the courts. One provision of the law lets the Defense Department provide support for counterdrug activities.

But declaring a national emergency remained an option, Mulvaney said, even though many in the administration have cooled on the prospect. A number of powerful Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., have also warned against the move, believing it usurps power from Congress and could set a precedent for a future Democratic president to declare an emergency for a liberal political cause.

"This is not the case of what the president not getting what he wants, so he goes off and declares a national emergency and gets the money he wants," said Mulvaney, who defended Trump's right to do so. "Face it, the president doesn't really want to do it. He would prefer legislation, because it's the right way to go."

As most budget disputes go, differences over hundreds of millions of dollars are usually imperceptible and easily solved. But this battle more than most is driven by political symbolism — whether Trump will be able to claim he delivered on his long-running pledge to "build the wall" or newly empowered congressional Democrats' ability to thwart him.

Predictably each side blamed the other for the stall in negotiations.

"We were, you know, progressing well," Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., said Sunday on ABC's "This Week." ''I thought we were tracking pretty good over the last week. And it just seems over the last 24 hours or so the goalposts have been moving from the Democrats."

House Budget Committee Chairman John Yamuth, D-Ky., countered by telling the same show, "the numbers are all over the place."

"I think the big problem here is this has become pretty much an ego negotiation," Yarmouth added. "And this really isn't over substance."

In a battle that's also largely over semantics, Democrats have said they won't pay for a "wall." But they are open to financing other types of barriers, such as vertical steel slats called bollards, barriers atop levies and vehicle barriers.


          Dems Border Proposal "Making This Entire Country A Sanctuary" For Illegals      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Sara Carter,

Negotiations over securing and building a border wall have reached an impasse Sunday as bipartisan talks are failing and both sides are edging closer to a government shutdown this Friday. Further, Democrats are pushing to weaken Immigration and Customs Enforcement, proposing drastic limitations on beds and weakening the agencies effectiveness to  hold criminal illegal immigrants, said Tom Homan, former ICE Director.

He told SaraACarter.com Sunday that the proposal is a serious security issue that is unacceptable.

“The Dems proposal will result in tens of thousands of criminal aliens and other illegal aliens that are currently detained pending a court hearing or removal to be released into our communities,” said Homan.

He noted the proposals are “making this entire country a sanctuary.”

It will result in “a rush to the border because incoming aliens will know there is no consequence for their actions,” Homan added.

 “As I have said all year, the Dems may not abolish ICE but they will cripple them and make them ineffective by severely harming their operational budget.”

Trump’s Sunday Tweets

President Trump is also showing his frustration. In a slew of Tweets Sunday, the president held Democrats responsible for failures over the past week to come to a resolution. He said the negotiations are failing because Democrats refuse to offer reasonable solutions to proposed legislation.

“Now, with the terrible offers being made by them to the Border Committee, I actually believe they want a Shutdown,” said Trump.

Moreover, the White House is demanding at least $5 billion in funding for a proposed barrier. Federal law enforcement officials have said the wall is necessary to manage resources and national security.

“I don’t think the Dems on the Border Committee are being allowed by their leaders to make a deal,” said Trump.

His sharp jab was at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi, D-CA, who has stated emphatically that she refuses to negotiate any deal that includes a border wall.

“They are offering very little money for the desperately needed Border Wall and now, out of the blue, want a cap on convicted violent felons to he held in detention,” he added.

It was evident when Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard C. Shelby, R-Alabama. He told Fox News Sunday, “I think we are stalled right now…I’m not confident we’re going to get there.”

The Numbers

ICE officials noted that 90 percent of asylum seekers easily pass the first step entering the United States. Most illegal immigrants now claim asylum, “credible fear,” citing danger to their lives if they return home, according to reports. However, only 20 percent of the people are actually granted asylum. Unfortunately, by that time, they have disappeared into the fabric of America, never reporting to court.

After they claim credible fear they still need to go through the judicial system. The process is lengthy — longer than ICE can detain immigrants — taking 45 to 60 days to see a judge. By this time, they have already been released.

FACTS ON ILLEGAL FAMILY UNITS AND APPREHENSIONS

  • Fiscal Year 2018 is the highest number of family unit apprehensions on record. More than 40% higher than any previous year on record.

  • The number of family units along the southwest border increased 22% from August to September.

  •  Illegal alien minors or adults traveling with minors are rarely detained or removed but released.  

  • Customs and Border Protection used to primarily apprehend single adults. Currently, CBP has an influx of minors and adults traveling with minors. It is a loophole they use to enter and stay in the country illegally.

          ¡Estalla familia Trump!, Ivanka aspira migajas en exposición de museo      Cache   Translate Page      
Una nueva exposición de un museo de Washington muestra a una modelo que interpreta a Ivanka Trump empujando una aspiradora e invita a los espectadores a aventar migajas para que las limpie.

La obra de arte de Jennifer Rubell, titulada “Ivanka aspirando”, se inauguró el 1 de febrero y estará hasta el 17 de febrero en la galería Flashpoint. Se motiva al público a “tirar migajas a la alfombra y ver cómo Ivanka elegantemente aspira el tiradero, sin perder jamás su sonrisa”.

Un gran texto que describe la obra colgado en la pared de la galería describe a Ivanka Trump como una “figura cuyo personaje público incorpora una cómicamente amplia variedad de identidades femeninas: hija, esposa, madre, hermana, modelo, mujer trabajadora, rubia”. Describe el acto de tirar migajas de pan sobre la alfombra para que ella las aspire “sorprendentemente placentero”.



Sin embargo, Ivanka Trump y sus hermanos Donald Trump Jr. y Eric Trump criticaron la exhibición el martes diciendo que es un intento sexista de humillarla.

“Las mujeres pueden optar por tumbarse o apoyarse entre ellas. Yo escojo lo segundo”, tuiteó Ivanka Trump, asesora de la Casa Blanca, junto con el vínculo a un reportaje de la exhibición.

Trump Jr. tuiteó: “Triste, pero no sorprendente, ver a las autoproclamadas ‘feministas’ lanzar ataques sexistas contra @IvankaTrump. En su mundo trastornado, el sexismo está bien si lastima a sus enemigos políticos”.

Eric Trump dijo en el noticiero Fox News que su hermana es una “mujer poderosa que ha hecho más por las mujeres que quizás cualquier otra persona en Washington, D.C.”.

La obra está abierta al público de 6:00 a 8:00 de la tarde.



La exhibición la presenta la organización de arte CulturalDC.

La directora ejecutiva, Kristi Maiselman, dijo que el grupo siempre está encantado de presentar “instalaciones oportunas que llevan al límite”, como ésta.

This is how and why Gov Brown's reform was so important and effective-- it would be far worse if not for the ex Gov. The funds are still solid--- Please don't bother sending any Fox News talking points about "unfunded liabilities"-- total sleeper and a top construct only a few years old now...snore time....zzzzzz I am aware of the ratio of Democrats to Top cultists currently in Sacto and by golly even federally. I like it very much..........My post was that Top cult morons never miss a chance to bash public education. It's dull-normal behavior from a once great party that was populated by statesmen and thinkers--- now? Not so much. Mostly now filled with corpulent city gadfly types who read part of an A.Rand dope treatise and bloviate ad nauseum about all things civic, as if, they knew ANYthing. Oh Lordy, are you one too?
           Comment on Student op-ed: We don’t need to hear conservative voices by Aneris       Cache   Translate Page      
I have no idea what this means. The author speaks of “conservative clubs” and at no point says that conservative speech should be banned or restricted. Instead, he argues that that no efforts should be made to “welcome” such speech. This is the problem. Like your words, I consider this empty speech that is too abstract to be meaningful, and in the abstract, there is no problem there. It looks to me that the USA has plenty of “fair and balanced” media, which already gives undue airtime to crooks and loons. Add Fox News and talk radio which is entirely bizarro universe with no resembles to reality as we know it. Not only is US politics centre to far right wing, the current administration is Republican, too. Americans are still unsure about climate change, or evolution. Conservatives are creationists and so on. There really is no place for that on a reputable academic institution. Of course, if it doesn’t affect someone’s work, someone can have all sorts of outlandish views, including conservative ones.
