You know, this is hard for someone who has watched the footage of President Trump rallying the people even saying he's going to go with them to the capital. You think of this is something that happened to trump? What do you make of this? So many Trump supporters that stayed home couldn't imagine their own in group members desecrating federal property. We're yelling at law enforcement. After all, they see themselves as the group that values these types of institution, so to make sense of what they saw on television, they'll come up with a variety of different reasons, such as it wasn't actually trump supporters who were orchestrating this rate, this much division about what is true.

Just one hazard reported moments ago in San Matteo won one south of Poplar reported an orange cone and in the middle of the off ramp, and that is about it A Zafar his issues 0 to 80, south of Alpine, a traffic hazard. Not saying what it is, but something's in the middle of the road. Joe McConnell for KQED, the mystery. Thank you, Joe. Time Now, For a perspective on KQED. I'm Dave Freeman and 8 43, immigrant families, bland traditions and habits of their birth country with those of their new American home. For Selena gang. That memory resides in a box of birthday candles. Birthdays have always represented a contradiction for my family as Cambodian refugees who fled the killing fields of the Camaro Rouge regime. We, like many other Cambodians found a living in California's nascent donut shop industry back in the 19 eighties. However, birthday is like the donuts. My family sold the quintessential American traditions that didn't exist in our lives prior to my parents coming to the United States. My earliest birthday memories consist of a frothy strawberry cake from the local Asian bakery topped with eight spiral striped walls and candles. I had carefully selected them from the 24 Count box. The cashier had talked my mother into buying despite her misgivings about the additional cost. After lighting the candles, my family saying and off key rendition of the Birthday song while I stood awkwardly at the head of the table, uncomfortable with all the attention I was relieved when it was all over and I could escape. I don't remember anything about what the cake tasted, like, or if I even got any presents, But I do remember my mother, carefully pulling the pastel candles with their slightly burnt wicks from the cream diligently, wiping the frosting before taking them to the sink to rinse them off. The next time I saw them they had been dried and put back into their original box with the other 16 on use candles and every year like clockwork, my mother would reuse the same tapers and add just one new one for me. We're no longer struggling just to get by. But the ingrained frugality of our immigrant background. The gratitude for escape from genocide and war and the incorporation of traditions that embody American ideals is a constant reminder of how lucky we are. I have a three year old daughter now who will never grow up like I did the stories her grandparent's will tell her. We'll see miss foreign as the Cambodian language they speak. But as her fourth birthday approaches, and I prepare for families first ever collected video call in a year where she has only heard their voices, I pull out her own set of burnt candles and get ready to write a new one for her.

With $1 Million, Exxon Mobil Corp Helps Fund Carbon Tax Campaign
"Though Bertelsmann's group prefers to call. It a fee not a tax more on that later. Burdensome says Exxon Mobil support will make lawmakers more receptive to carbon tax, but you may wonder why does an oil and gas giant like Exxon Mobil support a tax on its main products. Bertelson says one big reason is that companies want regulatory certainty they want to know what the rules of the game will be and that's unclear in the current environment. We're operating in what amounts to a game of regulatory pingpong in which you have one administration developing rules only to have the next roll them back. Another important reason. Exxon Mobil supports the plan is that while it would tax carbon. It would also remove most existing regulations on carbon emissions Bertelson says the carbon tax his group is proposing would be much more effective at. Reducing carbon pollution than the current regulations. The Americans for carbon dividends plan is based on a proposal from two Republican elder statesman. James Baker the third and George p Shultz both cabinet members. In Ronald Reagan's White House. One carat for Republicans is that the revenue from the tax or fee would be fully rebates to consumers Bertelson says the idea has received a positive reception from both parties on Capitol Hill with Republicans in particular. There's an increasing number of members of congress on on the Republican side that are looking to seriously engage on this issue. Of course, many Republicans are skeptical about both taxes and climate change. I think it is a step that's been Weber a former congressman from Minnesota. He's now a lobbyist and political consultant at mercury public affairs. But Weber says where the president in the White House who campaigned on reviving the coal. Industry, passing a carbon tax will be very difficult. I don't think there's any way of sugar coating her Republican today to embrace any new taxes difficult, and since President Trump was elected particularly attacks that focuses on fossil fuels is even more difficult. Greg Bertelson acknowledges the challenges and says the carbon tax has always been viewed as a longer term effort, but he says he thinks his groups carbon dividend proposal will become viable sooner than many people expect John ydstie NPR news, Washington.

Puerto Rico bankruptcy judge upholds oversight board powers over government
"I'm Rachel Martin, good morning a federal judge has ruled that Puerto Rico does not have the final say when it. Comes to its own fiscal policy the final word belongs to a fiscal oversight board, that congress, created two years ago it's a ruling that will have far reaching consequences for, the island's financial future to. Talk about that. Let's bring it NPR's Adrian flurry toe from San, Juan Puerto Rico Adrian hey Rachel so this fiscal oversight board was created way before the hurricane when Puerto Rico was. Still suffering from all kinds of financial problems right yeah I mean remember it was a couple of years ago the government basically, said that it would not be able, to pay the more than seventy billion. Dollars that it owes to bondholders, into, that led congress to do two things that passed Allowing. The islands to effectively declared bankruptcy to restructure. That debt it also created this seven. Member board with. Huge power to make decisions. About the island's finances in order to to get this debt under control and turn the economy around listen to what the. Board's chairman Jose Korean told me in our colleague Michelle Martin back in June the. Government's function aside from taking care of the needy is to create the economic conditions whereby private enterprise. Succeeds and employees folks creates wealth that's that's the nature, of our, system, are, legal. Needs destruction reforms that will allow it to do so with the board sees one of its roles is being as forcing Puerto. Rican? Government. To implement, these sorts of reforms along with huge spending. Cuts in this you can imagine his has been big source of tension right so then their control was essentially a called into question because the governor of Puerto Rico and the legislature In Puerto Rico sued the oversight. Board, last month the governor and legislature don't believe that this federally, appointed board should be able to, force the, local government to implement these measures, they think they can recommend but not not require the government to. Do so until one example input Rico workers are entitled by law to a Christmas bonus the board wants this bonus eliminated and so in the budget that it drew up. For Puerto Rico did not include enough money for something the governor said, it did not have the. Right to do, it's just one example I mean the fundamental question here right is when it comes to fiscal policy to fiscal reform canvas. Board do that who has the final say the elected government to fourth three or the sport created. By congress and yesterday with, this federal judge ruled is that it's this appointing board that they have the power to overrule Puerto Rico's government when it comes to. To financial policy well so I can't imagine that government, in? Puerto Rico Governor there especially is very happy about this then no he was not a huge overseas but But he issued a statement saying that. It was proof that the Rico which is a u. s. territory is in fact more like a US colony he called it. An undignified relationship because you, know congress basically dictating policy he said without the islands consent on the other, hand the members of this oversight board some of. Whom are from Puerto Rico others. From the mainland US they welcomed the ruling and they said it, was time for the governor to begin. Implementing these cuts and austerity reforms to get Puerto Rico back. On on the right. Track so, what does it mean then I mean if you consider the fact that now the democratically elected government their. Their their power and control over Puerto Rico has been curtailed what does that mean for regular. Folks that's absolutely right what you just said it also means that for regular folks they can expect more cuts to services benefits even pensions some of these cuts have. Already, begun to public education the health benefits and we're talking about, an island where through where half of the, population lives in poverty in these, cuts Unconvicted, to slice pretty deep
