"maria isabel" Discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"Round in one of the emoluments cases filed against estimate Federal Court and Appeals Court in New York ruled that a lawsuit against the president under the emoluments clause of the constitution can proceed a federal trial court had dismissed list that case with the federal judge. They're saying the case appeared to be politically motivated today. The appeals court said while it is certainly possible that these lawsuits are fueled in part by political motivations. We do not understand the significance of that fact whether a lawsuit has political motivations is irrelevant to these determinative issues issues while the existence of a political motivation for lawsuit does not supply standing nor does it defeat standing joining us now is no bookbinder under executive director for citizens for responsibility and ethics in Washington which is suing president trump for violating the emoluments clause. This is one of your your cases. your reaction to how the court ruled today. We're thrilled with how the court ruled today. We're obviously not happy at that. Two and a half years on we're in a place where this lawsuit is not only as important as it was the day we brought it to the president's first day in the Oval Oval Office but so much more important we were worried when we brought this lawsuit that the president in holding onto ownership of his businesses would be using using the presidency not just to enrich himself but to create these conflicts of interest where those who were seeking to influence him could patronize his businesses and then you wouldn't know whether he was acting in the interest of the country or in his own business and financial interests and that has come true in spades we we've seen that more and more brazenly lately and so it's even more important that these cases be able to go forward in the courts and we're glad that ah the Second Circuit Court of Appeals One of one of the courts at a level just below the US Supreme Court said that that could happen today and it should be noted that you're working in novel legal territory. It's not like we have a bunch of case law on presidents violating the emoluments clause. That's absolutely right. There are three cases is currently pending against the president for this the one that that crew joined by business owners who compete with the president's hotels but obviously can't offer access and influence over the president There's the ones that they that. There's that case that that was the one that was decided today. There's a case that the district of Columbia and the state of Maryland brought and the case that members of Congress brought but prior to this you didn't have any federal courts considering this issue of the emoluments clause of the constitution. This is really new territory and it's really important that that the abuses stop we had forty four presidents with none of them running businesses trying to make money off of the federal government. That's right. That's the emoluments clause of the constitution. Were not household names. There's not something that most people people knew about because presidents followed them. Presidents didn't try to keep global businesses going while they were serving. They didn't take money from the Federal Federal Government and the states and foreign governments while in office they they just follow the law President Obama went through a lot of deliberations since to figure out whether or not he could accept the Nobel prize and whether that would violate the emoluments clause president trump just blew through that and we at at Croup put out a report just weeks ago finding that there have now been twenty three hundred conflicts of interest between the president's businesses the the presidency and those trying to influence it. This is something that's happening every day and that he not only has no qualms about about violating but but seems seems intent to use the presidency to advance his businesses on a daily basis a big win for Noah bookbinder today court.

The humanitarian mannequin issue in our life depended on it. Thank you so much those Maria Isabel boy so testifying for her life in Congress on Wednesday. The trump administration Australian sent her and other patients suffering with deadly illnesses letters telling them they had to leave the country by tomorrow or be deported. This was an unannounced change in policy also by the trump administration for people who are in this country to receive lifesaving medical care after Isabelle's story went public the trump administration sent letters to Isabel and other patients telling them that their cases were being reopened but the letters did not explain what reopened means and the letters did not explain what would happen next door and joining us now by phone Democratic Congressman Mark to Sonia who represents the California Congressional district where Isabel boy so lives with her family and where she she has been participating in medical studies that have helped save an extend the lives of Americans who suffer from the rare disease that Isabel has been struggling with all of her twenty four years Carson. We we are certain that isn't going to be deported tomorrow. But do we know anything else else about what happens next. Not really we had a six hour hearing Florence. Is You know and thanks for inviting me on all your reporting on this. administered trouble with the congressman's telephone connection to us. I'm not sure if we if we have him. I just want to read a memo. That's been discovered by politico reporting on it today because there's people have been wondering. Where did this policy come from who started this policy and there is a memo that was used in a meeting last week about this policy that that political published today it is from the policy and strategy chief. Kathy New Belco varick on the citizenship and Immigration Services Services and she wrote in that memo that her department and she she strongly believes that the exercise of deferred actions is subject subject to abuse and she said if we continue to accept such requests even with narrow medical criteria we'll be creating a defacto program remove criteria which are not enumerated in statute or regulations and that runs counter to the president's agenda to enforce our existing laws so there is the memo the smoking gun so far in the investigation of WHO's responsible for this and that's Kathy New Belco varick saying that this is part of enforcing the president's agenda. The President's immigration agenda to enforce our existing laws against people like Isabel who you're seeing on this screen right now. She was not the only beneficiary the medical beneficiary of this program to testify on Wednesday. Let's listen to Jonathan Sanchez in Wednesday's hearing I did. They told us that the medical action program was canceled. I started crying. told me my mom. I don't WanNa die. I don't want to die. If I go back to address I will die. According to Kathy New Belco Eric's memo Jonathan Sanchez Chaz is one of the people who in her view might be abusing this program she is claiming that because of abuse is people like Jonathan Sanchez cannot be allowed to stay in this country and have to be sent to their deaths in his case back back to Honduras congressman to Sonya is back with us on the phone and congressman this memo from political. That's been reported on today. I was just reading that of for the audience I know you've seen it and this makes it pretty clear that it was part of Kathy Bill Couve Erica. She put it the department and she a strongly strongly believe that this program was subject to abuse and had to be stopped so we'd like them to demonstrate that we have asked for all their documents arguments oversight committee assured me today that we will get those looks like we're going to have to issue subpoenas because they usual the stranger shouldn't it is not for them. I think we're losing the Carson's telephone connection again driving out there the district somewhere there's a lot of hills and valleys their car smart Dasani Ed. Thank you very much for joining US tonight. We appreciate her attempt to to connect with us. We're GONNA be right back with more when we come back. The most intense part of last night's presidential debate was also the ugliest part of last night's the presidential debate it was the part of the debate that provoked p Buddha judge to say this is why presidential debates are becoming unwatchable. That was his word unwatchable. It was also the least important part of that debate. What people will judge called the unwatchable part? I'll show you why next reminds everybody of what they cannot stand about Washington talking points against each other coking at each other and telling each other that you're my plan your plan look we all. That's called the democratic. The immutable Lov presidential campaign debates is the more you know about government and policy the less satisfying the debate is many of the lines that get get the biggest reaction in presidential debates are declarations of hope on matters that are completely under the control of Congress the most stirring line in last night's debate was one of those Odessa I met the mother of a fifteen year old girl who was shot by in fifteen mother watched her bleed to death over the course of an hour because so many other people were shocked by that Ar fifteen in Odessa and midland. There weren't enough ambulances. This is to get to them in time hell yes. We're GONNA take your. Ar Fifteen AK forty seven the as usually healthcare section of the debate was the longest and most contentious part of the debate as it veered out of control with confusing policy she points and interruptions and insults Senator Kamala Harris said the most important thing that voters have to know about healthcare policy right now now in America everybody on the stage I do believe is well intentioned in once that all Americans have coverage and recognizes recognizes that right now thirty million Americans don't have coverage but at least five people have talked some repeatedly on this subject and not once have we talked about Donald Trump trump so let's talk about the fact that Donald Trump came into office and spent almost the entire first year of his term trying to get rid of the affordable notable care act we all fought against it and then the late great John McCain at that moment at about two o'clock in the morning killed his attempt attempt to take health care from millions of people in this country fast forward to today and what is happening. Donald Trump's department of justice justice is trying to get rid of the affordable care act. Donald Trump's administration is trying to get rid of the ban and that we placed on denying people who have preexisting conditions coverage. Donald Trump is trying to say that our kids up to the age of twenty six can can no longer be on our plans and frankly. I think this discussion is given the American public a headache. What they want to know is that they're going to have health care costs? I will not be a barrier to getting it but let's focus in on the end goal. If we don't get Donald Trump out of office. He's going to get rid of all of it. Seconds yes Republican senator. John McCain got applause right there. In the middle of the Democrats healthcare debate. You can ignore ignore everything else that the candidates say about healthcare policy in the debates because everything else they say is entirely under the control control of Congress and as president each one of them will sign whatever Democrats in Congress manage to pass in two thousand eight Hillary Clinton Barack Doc Obama argued endlessly about healthcare policy the chief difference being Hillary Clinton was in favor of an individual mandate and Barack Obama was opposed to it in the end President Obama signed the affordable care act with an individual mandate thereby proving that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton's disagreements about healthcare were completely ignored horrible. Each of them was going to side whatever version congress manage to pass. No one on that stage last night knows what Congress Congress is capable of passing on healthcare and the moderators didn't ask a question about health care that is within the powers of the presidency. The only only power the president has in relation to legislation is to sign or veto it and so the relevant question which could really shorten the healthcare section of the debate. You could do one of those quick show of hands moments..

"maria isabel" Discussed on Swing Left - How We Win
"Welcome to episode two of how we win. The run up to the twenty twenty election is going to be riveting and every week. We're sharing stories from the field all over the country. Ordinary people are doing extraordinary things. We'll give you the tools. You need to jump in and make a difference right now. On today's episode. Steve has a conversation with the founder founder and Executive Director of Women's March Los Angeles Emiliana get she has an incredible story that starts as an undocumented immigrant living in the Chicago projects and culminates with her helping to organize seven hundred thousand people in the streets of La and working to help win democratic victories all over the country then you're going to hear about the North Carolina Special Election this Tuesday September tenth and how we can help flip a forty first congressional seat. I'm Steve Pearson and Mariah Craven. I and this is how we went. Hey Steve we are are episode to episode to really Labor Day coming gone. Yes summer's over ish summer's pretty much over. Kids are back in school. Usually officials start to campaign season which is always eating. Yes aiding ties no longer about early organizing. It's like everyone needs to be in this doing it right. Now and there are people who are doing it. We're going to talk about a special election. That's coming up North Carolina looking to flip our forty first seat. The midterms actually aren't over yet. We were congressional seat to flip yeah one thing that might ah impact that election is actually Hurricane Dorian wishes as of right now has been really devastating and also concerned for are people on the East Coast that look to be in its path were thinking about everyone who's being affected by it and it's always a good time to talk about the direct and obvious effect that climate change is having on these super storms that we're seeing that get worse and worse every year we have record-breaking catastrophic storms that are a direct result of climate change absolutely the warming rising waters are without a doubt impacting both the size and intensity of the storm as well as the devastation havoc they wreak in in their wake and and I know we have a lot of climate change deniers in in leadership right now. It's really hard to understand what they're thinking. Yeah yeah in this is a surprise donald trump yeah that never heard it never heard of a cat five except for the. I don't know fifteen twenty times. He's talked about it over the last few yeah yeah. You know who's calling him out on this. Though is credit tune. Berg who's in the states after a boat trek across the Atlantic so that she wouldn't release any carbon emissions. Tell everyone who Greta Thunberg is who doesn't know who she is because she's spectacular. She's she's pretty impressive. She's a sixteen year old. Swedish girl who just started pro skipping school on Fridays to protest is climate change raise awareness in Sweden and as a result is now in the US where she's inspired other young people to do similar actions around the country on Fridays and around the world and she'll be speaking at the UN climate action summit later this month. It's amazing. It's amazing and it's a It's the perfect example of somebody looking at the world around them in saying what can I do figuring it out and inspiring others to do it. It's Greta Thunberg typer into Youtube. Check out her video speech. It's really I'm sure. Most of you have seen it but it's incredibly compelling. She's awesome. People like Greta going to save us all yeah young people young people. I you know I purposefully didn't say young people because they didn't want. I didn't want to sound like really old like these young young people. They're GONNA save us. Kids kids are going to do it but it's true anyway moving on to some more stuff that happened over the week more mass shootings in Texas and Alabama which is just more reason why we need to flip the Senate and get some politicians in there with the will to move forward on this great gun legislation that the House has already passed. Yeah we talked about this last week with a a Congress member. Katie Hill who shared a little bit of information about the bill that was passed in the house earlier this year that of course the Senate isn't even going to consider right so there are moments flake. These where you know we look back we are in our in our in our are descendants are going to look back and say what were they thinking. What were they thinking. Why why didn't they do anything and I think we've all had those moments where we look back on our country's history but I think about Sandy Hook being one of those moments and I think that August Twentieth Nineteen fifty three people all were murdered and mass shootings is going to be one of those moments where we aren't doing enough. We're doing some things it's going to boil down to take back the Senate and having the majority there to get this legislation through because Mitch McConnell refuses to bring any gun legislation to the floor but but we just saw that Walmart's GonNa suspend their sales of handgun ammunition and they're going to stop selling handguns in Alaska. which is the last place they actually sell handguns? That's an incremental step but kinda surprising to see from Walmart. Yeah there. There was a mass shooting out of Walmart in Texas last month. Is Everyone so tragic that that's what it takes to to get a company to take action but at least there's a you know a baby step in the right direction and I think as long as we do have leadership in the White House and Senate so economically focused focused on the NRA the change is going to have to come from the outside so Kudos to Walmart for taking that step and to all the activist I who have been pushing this to the forefront presidential candidates who were all talking about it in no uncertain in strong terms. I'm looking at you bet. Oh Oh and everyone else I mean this climate change to thanks. We've been talking about right. Now are the essential issues to us into the world right now and and the the majority of voters want change in these areas even Republicans background check legislation is almost ninety percent favorable. It's like eighty five to ninety percent favorable don't quote me on the exact stat but even among. Republicans even among NRA card holding Republicans Republicans they want better background checks. They want safer schools and communities so yeah. I'm another reason for hope. is that the trump administration appears to be reversing a decision that would have deported immigrants who are here. You're with medical emergency issues right. This just broke on Monday and many people may have seen the story of this a Young Woman Maria Isabel Wessel who is a Guatemalan woman who has a very rare disease that creates like dwarfism visit them and some abnormalities and there's been a experimental treatment that has been saving her life and has the potential to save other lives. 'cause she's part of this. This program to test this drug and the trump administration was just going to send her back to Guatemala where her doctor said she would certainly you get sick and die wow so because of the public outcry over this and the attention that it got they have reversed their decision on this yeah yeah. I think this is a really important point because I believe that the administration had sent letters to a group of people who would have been impacted acted by this that led them to believe that they had thirty three days before they were. GonNa be deported. They'd leave in thirty three days or face deportation right and so thank you to all the people who spoke up on behalf of this group of people for for him. Deportation would have been a life or death hat decisions. That's right yeah that's right. It happened by making this viral by sharing these stories by you know it just really blew up on on twitter and all that so we need to continue continue to highlight these stories and raise them up well. Let's get started.

She spent a little while talking about how it's my maybe not strictly accurate to apply sort of Butch fem dichotomy to Mexican lesbianism in nineteen fifty. She was like, I think this directly applies and then she was like, but as a Hispanic American, I interpret her as a Butch woman. And anyway, this is my fantasy. Academic paper. Yeah. It really is. It's quite interesting paper just in terms of the Tarn. So a lot of the information I've used here birth biographical. And the actual words of chevelle has self come from the documentary chevelle, which ally kindly unlabeled Soest foamy do this. I'll good research. I have no idea actually like I very much have pulled tonight ability in that. I definitely got it for I rain, but I don't remember how and it was a year ago. So I had to search my Earnhardt drive for us and get it again. I mean, he went to a library and got a DVD. And then that's that's two legal. It was cold something like like Cipolla Tilda tilted Tilda random symbols. I believe it was DVD reporting nine Celtics Celtics shooting. tones till tilled random symbols as paint, plus on sense. Documentary, but the very risque really it occasionally mentioned sex with women. Well, tier two plus. Yeah, I guess so that documentary was directed by Kathryn Goond and deresh key so Catherine into each Avella extensively in hundred ninety one. And then as far as I can tell kind of forget about her documentary project for two decades to take. And then came back to it. And the documentary was released in two thousand seventeen I mean, maybe he was trying to source funding list, only like that. Yeah. I'm not really sure. But it is. I guess fortunate that she did this because we have a lot of interview quidditch of tequila Jamila deed. Also, right and autobiography in two thousand and two nor English translation has ever been published end as discussed is joint speak Spanish, I have saying like bits of it. When people used it in that all the papers, and they translated sort of small sections reference them, but I've never seen the whole text, obviously, which is sad because she said a lot of interesting things about Quinonez in it, which could not really access I could kind of puzzle for with Google translate. But didn't really feel comfortable using his look. Please economic insights on history translate. Yeah. Sorry. The only times I really referenced is when somebody else's quoted her in a paper done the translation and analysis. Fool me on that note every time I quite Chabala. It's in translation, all the interviews were in Spanish with subtitles. I don't think she's working clich as far as I know.

"Three seven three three. We do have the discord on air call in line rooms that are opening to you over at discord, Don, Don FM, so hopping into one of those get you on the air, and you'll sound almost like you're sitting here in the studio with me, Ian, I'm laurel. And there's a story that's been in the news now for several days that I've wanted to talk about and I know you just came across this college admissions scandal. Yeah. So we should probably talk about that. That's that's that's a big headline for the day. Very, but the story that has been interesting to me over the last several days now, and it continues is the power outage in Venezuela. Now, I don't know how close you've been following. What goes on in Venezuela? Somewhat not super closely or what allegedly goes on in Venezuela because it's hard to really know what it is the tapping there. There's not safer reporters to go down. There. Still are though they're risking their lives. Of course. And I mean, everybody's at risk if you're just walking on the streets in Venezuela because desperate people when they're hungry. People get desperate. They start. You know, being willing to do things that they otherwise would not consider doing to their fellow man or woman, and there's constant, you know? Snatching grabs of people walking down the streets with cell phones and armed robberies people getting stuck up at intersections their stories of of people driving like food trucks and being waylaid by gangs of like motorcyclists who than rob. The the food truck is they're desperate. I mean, sometimes there's just opportunities lesson ends is desperate. There's a quote from Bernie Sanders. It's from an interview in the eighties or nineties and somebody was asking him because he was promoting socialism communism. They were asking him about bread lines in these socialist countries. And he said bread lines are good because bread lines mean there's bread where in whereas in capitalist countries. The rich have the bread and the poor starve. It's ridiculous statement are clearly not starving in the United States and Venezuela. Everybody is hungry in Venezuela. Unless you're just the richest up the rich. That's great. Eight point, and you know, go to the bread aisle in any grocery store in a so-called capitalist country. And of course, we're we're talking about here is a mixed economy. Anyway know, a free market or whatever capitalism really means anyway. But you know in a place where you have a relatively unrestricted market. I prefer the term the free market. I don't think that the free market, excludes capitalism or communism. I think it includes both of those lungs there Ballin -tary. So if you wanna have a commune have a commune in a way of a family unit is a communist unit, you can look at it that way, I suppose or dictatorship that will what's communism. Well, I. Coming from each according to his ability to each other. Yeah. Right. It's very centrally planned in it never ends up. They never end up getting rid of the government that they claim. They're great essentially plan means the people the end user, isn't planning it. Right. The Little People So in Venezuela, which is a socialist country and the worst on the planet. Besides maybe North Korea at the moment. Because they're they're currency is certainly the worst of all the world's different government currencies, and that's due to insane levels of hyper inflation, but also central control in central management fails. And we've seen it happen over and over again, whether it's in the Soviet Union or just looking at our own governments and seeing how inefficient the centralized government is here in the United States compared to say industry compared to the more market based functions of business and government doesn't even compare in its efficiency to the marketplace. This is how equality goes wrong because the idea or part of the idea behind centralized planning or just centralizing power is to make everything the same to even it out as much as you can't. So the idea behind it is equality. This is what's happening in our public schools. They keep centralizing the more and more in handing down orders from essential planning committee, more and more. And the idea is more federal control more federal. But the idea is to sort of end the inequality, but what's happening is they're just screwing everything up, and they're making it all bad. It's all equally bad so centralized planning because one size does not fit all centralized with children, exactly an individual's education. Learn the same way, you know, there's different types of learning. And so here's what's going on. This is again, this has been going on now for I think at least five days, and this story is the initial one. But there's another one in the New York Times that came out today that this is continuing. But this one tells a good story from the AP Venezuela's worst power and communications outage Friday deepened a sense of isolation and decay endangering hospital patients, forcing schools and businesses to close and cutting people off from their families, friends and outside world. Now Huda shut off the power was it the government or some insurgency. Well, the government wants you to believe it was the United States out. We'll get into that game. Things to do while the electricity returned to some parts of Caracas nearly twenty four hours after lights phones and the internet stopped working. The blackout was another harsh blow to a country paralyzed by economic and political turmoil. Many of the few shops that were open were only accepting cash because without electricity and the internet. They can't process debit card payments common method of doing transactions in Venezuela. Since hyper inflation, transform the boulevard and one of the world's most worthless. Currencies and remember back in August of last year. The Venezuelan government issued the new boulevard Soberano, which means sovereign Bulevar to replace the strong boulevard, which is the boulevard forte, which originally replaced the boulevard. So they're on their third ration- of the boulevard in two decades. Basically, and what they did when they replaced the the the fourth day the boulevard fort day with a boulevard Sabrina was they knocked five zeros off of the currency. So imagine. In going from a five hundred thousand boulevard note to a five boulevard. No, that's that's what it became worth. Of course in the hyper inflation has continued since then. But one of the reasons why they had to do this beyond the, you know, trying to pull the wool over people's eyes, which obviously isn't going to work, I would hope at this point. But because the credit card machines only have so many digit places on them. So if you're ringing up a sale for a, you know, a dinner, and it's in the millions of of Bulevar, you're over the number of characters that you can actually enter into the machine it wasn't designed for that. So they had to change the one of the reasons why they changed the currency around. I'm desperate said Maria Isabel Garcia, a thirty nine year old office worker who hasn't been able to cook anything for over three young children. She planned to buy bananas. But had no cash because the Bank didn't have any when she was there on Thursday. The Bank had no cash. No cash. Sorry. You can use your debit card await the power's out. Another Caracas resident who is diabetic is searching for was searching for ice to preserve his limited supply of insulin. Medication which from what I understand medication on its own is hard to come by in Venezuela. So here once I was interested in how is insulin made it. Oh my goodness. That is a long and involved process. So it's not like you can go out and grow your own insulin. Right. It's very just click it up in the kitchen. Yeah. It is very very difficult to make Venezuelans are accustomed to power cuts. But nothing like the one that he hit during rush hour Thursday evening. Sending thousands of people on long nighttime tracks in the dark to their homes. It reached virtually every part of the oil rich country of thirty one million people which was once Latin America's wealthiest, but is now beset by shortages and hyper inflation projected by the International Monetary Fund to reach a staggering ten million percent. This year compelling about one tenth of its population to flee in recent years, the blackout promptly became a point of dispute between. President Nicolas Maduro who blamed sabotage engineered by the imperialist United States. Which by the way is the same story that they were portraying in North Korea because North Korea also had nighttime power outages regularly. Now, maybe they still do. I haven't heard in recent years, but just within the last couple of decades they had regular nighttime power outages, and the official line from the government is we are being attacked by the United States constantly, so no bombs. Right. No guns. Just just the power. Just they're sabotaging the power stations. Those dirty imperialists so same excuse here. Us-backed opposition leader, one Guido who said state, corruption and mismanagement have left the electrical grid in shambles. He said that was the cause. And I suspect.
