Trump downplays legacy of slavery and embraces white supremacy
"Donald Trump intensified efforts to appeal to his core base of white voters on Thursday by downplaying the historical legacy of slavery in the United States and blasting efforts to address his stomach racism as divisive. The president's comments marking the two hundred and thirty third anniversary of the signing of the constitution amounted to a defense of white culture and denunciation of Democrats the media and others who he accused of trying to indoctrinate school children and shame their parents whiteness. He also argued that America's founding set in motion the unstoppable chain of events that abolished Slavery Secured Civil Rights defeated Communism and fascism and builds the most fair equal and prosperous nation in human history. But he did not mention the two, hundred, forty, six years of slavery. In America including the eight thousand nine years it was allowed to continue after the colonies declared independence from England nor did the president acknowledged the ongoing fight against racial injustice and police brutality which has prompted months of protests. This year trump has long fanned the nation's culture wars including defending the display of the confederate battle flag and monuments of civil war rebels from protest is seeking their removal. He speech on Thursday suggested his rhetoric could become even more nationalistic. In the final weeks before the election given that he's off to a second term relies largely on energizing culturally conservative white voters trump already cracked down on anti racism training sessions in federal agencies he said on Thursday, he will soon sign an order to establish a commission to promote patriotic education dubbed the seventeen seventy, six commission.

"County supervisors and some of the sheriff's deputies, civilian overseers and I'll calling about Alex Vienna wave to resign with great reluctance that I'm calling for Mr Villanueva to resign. The initial call comes from Robert Bonner, a member of the Civilian Oversight commission and a former federal prosecutor and U S District Court judge supervisor she like you'll describes it as a bold step in one that she supports. Chances. Villanueva has never worked with the board of Supervisors. He's $100 billion over his budget and won't do anything about it. He has no control over his department. Every time his deputies do some other bad thing, he says, either it didn't happen or well.

Muslim woman files federal lawsuit over Los Angeles PD officers removing her hijab
"A federal lawsuit has been found by a Muslim woman who claims LAPD officers violated her religious rites by removing her head scarf without permission during a search outside and L. A Police commission meeting last year, a woman knew Sybil Mubarak hadn't even spoken during a public hearing of the police commission. When a number of people apparently violate the commission rules. She, along with several others were escorted out. Warrick said She was taken into a separate room and was searched by a female officer with a male officer watching and during that search, he said, the head scarf, she warned adherence to her beliefs was removed. The officer had no regard for my religious rights, and she dismissively said. Oh, just wait a minute. The officers then forced me to wait for several minutes while I was exposed and humiliated. The council on Islamic American Relations Legal section called the incident blatantly discriminatory, and said the lawsuit is in response to a violation of 1st and 4th amendment rights. LAPD officials say they haven't seen the grounds laid out on the suit, and they do not comment on pending litigation.
'Patriotic Education': Trump Says He Will Start New Commission
"All things considered. I'm Elsa Chang and I'm Sasha Pfeiffer. President Trump waded into the classroom today. He says he thinks American students need to be taught what he calls patriotic education, and he accused his political opponents of trying to brainwash Children about racism. Must clear away the twisted Web of lies in our schools, classrooms and teach your Children the magnificent truth. About our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation. In the history of the world. It's the latest development in the cultural divisions. Trump is trying to promote as part of his reelection campaign. White House correspondent Tamara Keith joins me now to talk about this item. Hello. And the president says he's going to create a new commission about this. Can you working? Tell us about that commission? Yes. So he went to the National Archives to announce that he is creating a commission to promote history education that focuses on quote the legacy of 17 76. Of course, that is the year when American colonies declared their independence from Great Britain, and this is a reaction in part against the 16 19 project. President Trump made it explicit. He said that That was the project led by the New York Times that focuses on a view of American history stemming from the year when the first enslaved Africans were brought to these shores. But it's also a reaction to the protest that we've seen this year against racial injustice. One thing about the commission to be clear about, though the federal government does not have jurisdiction over school curriculum, so it is up to schools and local and state governments to decide what to teach. And they do and they teach very different things depending on where you are. This isn't the first time the president has talked about these themes. Would you put in context? Put this in context for us politically? Yes. Oh, he's wrapping a few things together here. People on the right have long complained about the liberal bent on college campuses. That is not new. But there has been a growing effort by educators at all levels, even in elementary schools to teach Children about systemic racism. Slavery as a founding sin of the nation. The genocide of Native Americans as part of westward expansion, and President Trump objects to that strongly, saying schools are teaching Children to hate America. Our Children are instructed from propaganda tracks. Like those of Howard's in Try to make students ashamed of their own history. The left has warped, distorted and to file The American story. With deceptions, fall suits and lives. This also comes in the midst of the racial justice protests where some protesters tour down or vandalize statues of Confederate generals and founding fathers who owned slaves, and Trump has come to the defense of these statues, making them a cause of sorts as part of his re election. There is often a reason or an impetus for why Trump will say things that he knows will be provocative. Is there Do we know what he's talking about this now? Well, he's been talking about it for a little while. It's it's clear. This is part of his re election. This is a variation on themes that he talked about it during speeches and at Mount Rushmore on July 3rd the White House on July 4th. It's a theme he has been coming back to to fire up his base, sort of a variation on make America great again, harkening back to a different time. A different America. He is presenting himself as a great defender of American values and and even Western civilisation, as if to say that people who don't agree with his view of history or of what makes America great. That they are just wrong, but fundamentally trying to destroy the country. It is a very different reelection message than those used by past presidents. It's not about uplift or unifying. It's a long way. From morning in America and as if it wasn't clear already that this is part of his reelection campaign. As part of his remarks, President Trump took a very unsettle shot at Joe Biden holding up a statue of a a notable Delaware founding father and saying that when his statue was taken down by the city of Wilmington, Biden didn't speak out. That's white House correspondent. Tamara Keith. Thank you to him. You're welcome. For

U.S. Agency Urges End To Below-Minimum Wage For Workers With Disabilities
"So for 82 years, American labor law has had a carve out for some workers with disabilities they could be paid less than minimum wage. This was meant to encourage employment of more people. But today a top federal civil rights watchdog says the exemption should end because it's been trapping workers in job programs that they call exploitative and discriminatory. NPR's Alina, sell your reports. Jerry Dagostino had a job but couldn't afford a few things he wanted to do, like, go out to eat. Sometimes daughter more days go to events. He was working alongside other people with disabilities at a center in Rhode Island, doing what he calls bench work road tasks like fitting rings into heating tubes. Packaging ice packs, assembling boxes for jewelry. If I remember correctly, my first my first paycheck was only 12 box. I just question myself a cz. You know, I really don't want to keep doing that worked for my whole life. Dagostino now works at a supermarket where his paycheck is a lot more than $12 total. But he spent years in that center which made him below minimum wage, thanks to that carve out in the labor law. Centers like that are often called sheltered workshops because they keep people with disabilities in a separate cluster there, pay is estimated to average $3.34 an hour. To calculate individual pay. The center's regularly time their workers comparing how fast they do tasks to an experienced non disabled worker half as fast half the pay Now the U. S Commission on Civil Rights says this programme and the law should be phased out. In short. The program doesn't work and it is designed in a way that it can't work. Catherine Lehman chairs the commission, she says. Instead of expanding opportunities, the program's limit them don't really prepare people for work in the community jobs with regular wages. I was. I was ashamed of the ways that we have operated now over a decade's a federal assumption that people with disabilities Are less capable full employment than people without disabilities.

Several federal bills trying to do so on a national level have so far failed.

President Von Der Leyen's State of the Union Address: Charting the Course Out of the Coronavirus
"People want to move out of this corona world out of this fragility out of uncertainty they're ready for change and they're ready to move on earth. Lafond Lines tweet ahead of her first State of the Union address was full of Vim, vigor and dynamism. Her focus is one of recovery being achieved through making the E U Carbon-neutral. She said the e you should set a target to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least fifty, five percent by twenty thirty that's up from a current target of forty percent. But how much will all twenty seven member states agree with her well to tell us more joined on the line from Brussels by Kalina or Russia. Cough is the international climate politics reporter for politico. Everyone. Welcome to the program clinic. Good to have you. Thank you very much good morning in Brussels. This was a hugely important first speech for US love underline wasn't it? Yes. Indeed I mean festival as he said, it's her first one and then secondly, of course comes at a time when I'm pretty much everything has changed the thing. Kobe. Pretty much over through all of the original plants she had her commissioned head. which was also, it's been interesting to see how she would frame some of the main policy priorities. In her speech yesterday. And the way she framed him was very much from an environmental perspective wasn't it? Exactly, I think one of the interesting aspects of today's speech was that she very much emphasized to green course that the European Commission once the you to go and you may know in December she had announced to flagship programme of the European Green deal that's meant to make the. Climate neutral. So slash greenhouse gas emissions to zero, but twenty fifty and she very much again doubled down on that message yesterday saying that pursuing that course an even strengthening efforts to cut emissions will very much help the US 'em attempts to come out of the pandemic economic fallout as well as become more, and that's a new word more resilience and two whether future crises. How does she intend to fuse the two ideas namely of recovery from covert economically and to ensure that the European. Union is carbon neutral twenty-fifty. The message that she and her and her commission pursuant very many other players as well. I mean essentially is that. It doesn't cost the economy to. Do More on the environment to do more discussion missions but actually it will help and promote economic growth in jobs, and so that's very much how both these programs so being married and I think initially and Kovic. Starting the pandemic really having an economic effect was there was quite a big, quite a lot of concern that it would undermine the US green agenda but rather to the country as seniors become a growing realization that going green. is going to be good for the economy and that's a very much a message shows us on the line push yesterday, and then on the other hand I think it's also become much more. Evident. That climate change impacts will hurt you economically I mean yesterday she gave a number of speeches. We see glaciers melting they're more and. More, destructive droughts across Europe and more and more people feel the impact and I think. That comes with a cost and so there's more of a waning to the fact that S- and the climate change is an economic impact not just then. Potentially social or environmental
Organization Seeks to Increase Voter Participation in America
"Cat. Calvin is the founder and executive director of Spread The Vote, a nonprofit organization that's working to increase voter turnout. Welcome to the program. Hi. Thanks for having me So One of the main things your organization is trying to do is close the gap between registered voters and voter turnout. How big of a gap are we talking about? Well about 83% of eligible voters in the country are registered. But we have an average turnout of 55% 15, maybe a little higher depending on the election, So there is a huge gap of tens of millions of voters who are registered. They've taken that first step but who have a hard time taking the many steps that it takes to actually get a ballot in So we hear a lot about voter registration drives. But why is that? Not enough? You know voter much drives a great their first step in every state except North Dakota. You have to be registered to vote. But the fact is, there are a lot of things that you have to do in between that So, for instance, one of the main things that spread the vote does is that we help people get ideas primarily in voter ID states. There are over 21 million eligible voters who don't have photo ID, but 36 states where it's required. So that means that you can look at states like Wisconsin, where there are over 300,000 registered voters who don't actually have the idea. They need to vote or 200,000, Virginia, etcetera. And so you know, that's just one big way that voter registration isn't actually looking at. What are all the other challenges you know, There's also transportation challenges. There's child care. We have a massive problem with discrimination against people with disabilities at the polls. You know, and then a huge, huge voter education gap. And so there's just a lot of things that we need to address between registration and turnout to make sure we're actually helping people explain a little bit more about the voter education gap that you see. Yeah. I mean, you know, it's interesting because I was listening to some of the questions that people had coming in. Also, I want to send bonus points to the Twitter who said that we should be doing rank choice voting because she's absolutely right. You know, the fact is that we don't We don't do a lot of civic education in schools anymore, And then we really don't do it after school, And so a lot of people just don't Really understand the voting process who they're voting for what we're voting for you. We do a tine of voter education and spread the vote. 77% of our clients have never voted before and had midterms. We had people in age ranging from 18 to 79 voting for the first time, and when they ask us questions or when we go, we get sort of thousands of questions that people just email us because we're an organization with vote in the name and it's Everything from. I don't know how I'm supposed to use this machine. I don't understand the difference between absentee voting and mail in voting in what's early voting. You know, I don't know what any of these positions are. Nobody knows what the comptroller is or what the board of supervisors is. You know, we get a lot of first time voters who we talk to you and they say I opened my ballot and I thought it was just going to be the president. But there were like 30 pages of things that I didn't know what I was supposed to do. I don't know what a ballot measure is. And so there's just a lot of sort of basic info. You know, there's also we get people who say I just open my mail in ballot and there's a bunch of pieces of paper here. I don't know what I'm supposed to do with that, you know, And so there's a lot of work that needs to be done. I'm just helping people understand what the process is. And how do you do it? How do you follow all these obstructions? And then when you look at, you know, people returning citizens the rules for returning citizens being able to vote or different everywhere, And there isn't a lot of information out about how people are supposed to know if they're eligible to vote again. How they become eligible. You know, people, Disabilities don't always know what all the requirements are and what accessibility requirements there are and what they're allowed to, You know, demand that they have it. They're polling place. And so there's just a lot of Really voting 101 information that people don't get. Well, we got this tweet from Benjamin, who says, I think the problem with voter apathy is that many people of you voting purely as a response to an agenda they did not set. It's important to stress to voters that they are just as much responsible for setting the agenda as they are for voting to set that agenda into motion, and I'm curious how much you hear from people about You know that that issue of you know? Look, I'm voting for something that I don't feel particularly a part off. Oh, absolutely. I mean, first of all, if we'd all been listening to Ralph Nader in the seventies, this would be a very different country because he basically was advocating for indivisible, right. He kept saying voting is just one day we have to be sure that we are keeping these politicians accountable that we're telling them what we want that we're making sure that they do it. And you know, one of the things that we try really hard to do now is remind people that voting is not the whole movement, but it's a big part of and that it is a thing. We have to do it once a year. Twice a year, however many times you vote in your community, but it is just one way. Of changing this democracy of setting the agenda, and so we have to still be taking to the streets. We have to still be calling into the police Commission meetings are going to City Council meetings. You know, we have to be finding and recruiting really amazing members of our community who we think would be great. You know, members of elected office and then supporting them. It's a lot more than voting that voting. Because we live in a democracy is a key part on I think when people understand I'm not just voting once a year and walking away and then someone else is making decisions, but that I'm helping to set those decisions and push those decisions and once a year voting is my way of grading how I think that those decisions were made and maybe hiring somebody new and firing someone excited, read, then it puts the power a lot more into the voters hands.
FTC eyes possible antitrust suit against Facebook
"Check out shares facebook under fire today as the social media giant deals with a boycott in possible anti-trust lawsuit let's get to Julia Carson. Who's got the details. Julia? Well, Melissa, the FTSE's in working on its investigation into facebook since last June and now the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the agency is gearing up to possibly file an antitrust lawsuit. Later, this year after investigating concerns that facebook's been using its position to stifle incompetent to stifle competition and examining its acquisitions of potential competitors got a no comment from facebook as well as from the FTC on this report but. That's always the question what could come next while a majority of the five member commission would have to vote in favor of the suit. Then potential remedies could range from breaking off a piece of the company to a fine to restrictions on facebook's operations than to mandate any changes. The FTC, would have to prove that these book violated antitrust law. Now, this conversation comes as a dozen of top celebrities on instagram. Abstain from posting on that platform today in solidarity with the Hashtag Stop Hate for profit campaign the participants including Kim Kardashian with one hundred, Eighty, eight, million followers Katy Perry with one, hundred, seven million or posting messages this week about how they think facebook could address hate speech on facebook and instagram. Now Kim Kardashian posting yesterday quote that she can't sit by and stay silent while these platforms continue to. Allow the spreading of hate propaganda and misinformation and double ACP CEO Derek Johnson saying quote it's speaks volumes that there is now widespread concern but facebook's complacency and W.. C.. P. Of course, is one of the organizers of stop hate for profit. Now, of course, the question is whether this will impact consumer behavior and whether it could drive facebook to make additional changes Melissa, Juliet's interesting the basis the FTC. Potential suit or complaint in that when facebook bought what's up when facebook instagram these were nowhere near competitor's at the time I mean, at the time it seemed for instance, Instagram it was purchased what for a billion dollars it at thirteen employees I don't think that anybody ever thought that it would become what it is. Today was not seen at all as a potential competitor. Absolutely, and Melissa's worth pointing out that the FTC approved both acquisition of Instagram and the acquisition of WHATSAPP and facebook has argued repeatedly that is because these companies were part of facebook the because that they had the investment of giant like facebook that they could grow to the scale and return they are now in interestingly face, you been focused on integrating the back end of. Those APPs allowing people to message between them and they would say these things don't exist in a vacuum and never would have gotten to that scale if they'd been left as a standalone
The First Step Act, Chuck Colson, and the Churchs Work of Restoration
"I'm old enough to remember that time way back in two thousand, eighteen when Democrats and Republicans worked together. Really it happened and resulted in a major bipartisan criminal justice reform bill called the first step act which sought to reduce the number of people in overcrowded federal prisons and improve conditions for those behind bars. When he endorsed the bill President Trump said this we're all better off when former inmates can receive and re enter society as law abiding productive citizens at last month's Republican National. Convention Ivanka trump called the first step act the most significant criminal justice reform of our generation? I don't think that's an overstatement. A major feature of this bill is that it reduces mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenders, especially low level nonviolent offenders, and for those already serving time for crack cocaine related offenses the reductions were retro active in just its first year. First Step Act has literally changed thousands of lives according to a recent report from the United States sentencing commission the sense is. More than seven thousand Federal Prisoners Dean able to safely return to their communities were reduced as the libertarian publication reason rightly noted the first step to act as a modest but very real first step towards comprehensive criminal justice reform and I'd add that as part of the legacy of Chuck Colson and the very good work of prison fellowship, this bills and example of the Church's work of restoration. God us. Chuck Colson to transform the way that many political leaders especially conservative political leaders thought. About criminal justice while imprisoned chuck learn just how empty and even counterproductive the lock them up and throw away the key rhetoric that he wants espoused really was the call that God then placed on Chuck's life was to bring the Gospel to prisoners and their families through prison fellowship but that quickly expanded to include prison in criminal justice reform. He quickly realized that being tough on crime was pointless unless we were first smart about crime being smart about crime lead Chuck to campaign against. The three strikes and you're outlaws that swept the US during the nineteen nineties he knew that such laws would only lead to overcrowded prisons, unaffordable system building and maintenance, and eventually the court ordered releases of thousands of prisoners because of political pressures instead of Prudential Wisdom, we've seen some of that even recently God use Chuck Solid, conservative Christian and law and order credentials to advance this new message people who may not have given other activists. The time of day respectfully listened to him many. Hearts and minds were changed not just because of Chuck Colson Passion or is incredible ability to articulate. But because he took people with him back into prison to see for themselves, what he saw to borrow modern fraiche chuck move the Overton Window in other words that acceptable range of policies politically acceptable to the mainstream population and so decades later years after Chuck Olson's death at a time of deep and painful political division. The first apt act garnered bipartisan support, Chuck's legacy of giving people. The moral permission and the intellectual justification to do the right thing in this area is something that Christians should seek to emulate in every aspect of life and culture. Of course if we're going to do this, we have to I know what the right thing is, and then we have to learn to talk about issues in ways that might be heard about a year ago that vision drove us to launch. What would you say a video resource designed to help Christians Converse on our? Culture's most challenging questions. Now, our personal stories might not be as dramatic as Chuck Colson was, but we can still strive for the same humility

"It it sounds to me like you have some concerns in not obviously with this conversation it sounds to me like you have concerns about the process give me some real examples of some concerns that you have with the way the commission was set up and is functioning my deepest concern has to do with what appears to be the fact that it's dead it wasn't set up to be a broad bipartisan commission from the beginning an although there are democrats on the commission the composition of the commission looks to be at the leadership at least is partisan in by and large the membership of the commission is not balanced with respect either to partisans or to people who have an equal number in a you don't have an equal number of people on both sides of this issue about bliss maintenance it strikes me that the that the question about how clean our voting lists sr is a serious question a public policy and on the public needs understand the answer to the question of how accurate are our voting lists i mean that's that's a serious question but that question rumors is within a highly partisan environment and so if we really interested in the answer to that question rather than in prosecuting partisan ends than it's incumbent upon a presidential commission to be balanced from the beginning and this commission you know the leaders are prominent republicans one of whom is very well known in that is secretary cobac for being especially insistent that voter rolls or dirty and that there are a lot of double voters and non citizens while this was the problem with aliens voting aliens registry there's no way you can look on the voter rolls saying this was an alien this'll dismissing citizen discilplinary you once a person gets on the voter rolls you don't have any way of easily identifying them as aliens who so you have to rely in postelection studies he has a clearly identified position.

"The people to the best of my knowledge that said on that commission had any expertise and cybersecurity whatsoever and in fact there is a bill moving through congress right now that would define the election assistance have minute the election assessment commission which makes recommendation on on um you know the security of voting machines and the security of your voter rolls all um and so it's a little bit disingenuous that the committee to say we are going to focus on on a on any international interference because he got no indication that they will be on one question in the letter which really is about cybersecurity and not foreign interference if you had to make the most compelling argument for the value of this commission what would it be no i mean i think that voter integrity is very important and if the commission does in fact take voter intimidation and cybersecurity as seriously as they take voter fraud there might be some interesting national recommendations that come out of this committee i unfortunately i don't get the sense that that is trio i'm bill those are not the things that mr kulbok has historically focused on those are not the things that he appears to be focusing on now uh those are not the things that the letter appears to place the most emphasis on on show i mean you know i think that election integrity is important voter fraud does happen is just does not happen at the rate at which uh folks like mr cobac claim that it does on and it does need to be stopped and there are things that we can do as a country to to quell those concerns uh but you know i it it remains to be seen how they committee will appropriately deal with those well let's hear from alex in paul oh alto high alex hey i let him is about people who are aired are happy about it as though when elegant i hear the air when i look out there and ready to go any of the area and laugh laugh they gotta deal with i did at stake out a way as graf salix thinks jessica men um i mean i can only really speculate get on that.
