It’s Time for an Americans’ March | Another Moment for Public Protest Has Arrived.

Westlake Legal Group 8xyzhZVAgdcoT9hxGgmN8DXsUPBLuy6zjkjxdeAUSJw It’s Time for an Americans’ March | Another Moment for Public Protest Has Arrived. r/politics

By David Leonhardt, Opinion Columnist

On Nov. 9, 2016, the day after Donald Trump’s election, Obamacare looked to be doomed. Millions of Americans, it seemed, were going to lose their health insurance.

Trump had campaigned on a promise to repeal the law, as had many other Republicans, and their party was about to control every branch of the federal government. All Republicans had to do was pass a law that Trump would sign. Democrats had no way to stop it.

Or at least they had no way to stop it using only the inside game of politics — congressional hearings, committee votes, presidential vetoes and so on.

Fortunately, some progressives understood that politics isn’t only an inside game. The outside game — of public protest and grass-roots lobbying — matters, too.

Even before Trump took office, activists began planning a strategy to make repeal as politically painful as possible. On the day after Trump’s inauguration, some four million Americans took to the streets for Women’s Marches (which obviously were about much more than repeal). In the months that followed, groups like Indivisible organized people to attend town halls, visit Capitol Hill and inundate members of Congress with phone calls. The efforts transformed the debate. Obamacare repeal was no longer a bloodless legislative matter, in which public opinion was measured merely with poll results and pundit analysis. The story became rawer, more human and much harder for politicians and ordinary citizens to ignore.

In the end, just enough Republican senators responded to the pressure, and Obamacare survived. The outside game had changed the math of the inside game.

The impeachment inquiry has reached the stage when it needs an outside game. We all know where the inside game is likely to lead: House Democrats will impeach Trump; Senate Republicans will acquit him; and he will claim vindication. But Trump’s presidency has become too dire for Americans to accept that outcome without trying to change it.

Consider what happened last week alone. Trump created a foreign-policy disaster in Turkey and Syria, for no apparent reason, while multiple administration officials testified that he views diplomacy largely as a way to advance his personal interests. His attitude, evidently, is: America, c’est moi. Even more so than a month ago, Trump is a national emergency, flagrantly violating his oath of office and daring the country to stop him.

Yet the chances of removing him appear as dim as Obamacare’s chances of survival did on Nov. 9, 2016. Trump even has plausible paths to re-election, some of which involve again losing the popular vote.

L.A. Kauffman, a historian of protest movements, has said that effective ones often throw “a monkey wrench into a process that was otherwise going to just unfold smoothly.” That’s the role that an outside game can now play in the impeachment saga.

It can wake up more Americans to the gravity of the situation. It can mobilize progressives to work as hard as they did during the 2018 midterms. It can confront congressional Republicans with their cowardice.

Do you remember the images showing throngs of people taking to the streets for the Women’s March? The size of the crowds, especially compared with Trump’s inauguration, reinforced the fact that most Americans rejected Trumpism. The marches also helped inspire the so-called resistance movement, which in turn created a network of dedicated activists, as the social scientists Lara Putnam and Theda Skocpol have pointed out.

And do you remember the viral moments from the save-Obamacare movement, like the disability-rights activists visiting Congress or the citizens speaking up at town halls? Jessi Bohon, a teacher in central Tennessee, created one of those moments by connecting the fight to her Christian faith. It was one of many ways that ordinary people held up for a vision of America as decent and communal as Trump is vulgar and selfish.

“Protests work,” as Kauffman has said — not always, of course, but often “when groups are willing to be bold in their tactics and persistent in their approach within the broad discipline of non-violent action.” As Vox’s Matthew Yglesias wrote last week, public protest “serves as a powerful signal to the rest of society that something extraordinary is happening.” If anything, protest may be more important than in the past, because the elite institutions that helped bring down Richard Nixon, like political parties and the national media, are weaker today.

So it’s time for a sequel to that first Women’s March — an Americans’ March, in which millions of people peacefully take to the streets to say that President Trump must go. And it’s time for a more intense grass-roots campaign directed at his congressional enablers, one that conjures the respectful intensity of the save-Obamacare campaign. Even if the Senate still acquits Trump, a new protest movement can help galvanize people to defeat him, and his enablers, next year.

The country is in crisis. Right now, that crisis feels all too normal.

Prince Harry gets candid about his relationship with Prince William, moving to Africa

Westlake Legal Group 39a2ad09-6b2a-449a-b997-bd84e046ec9f-AFP_1LG16G Prince Harry gets candid about his relationship with Prince William, moving to Africa

rince Harry and Duchess Meghan recently wrapped a 10-day trip to Africa, a place the prince has been open about his affinity for. But would the royal couple ever pack up their Frogmore Cottage home in favor of another continent? 

“I don’t know where we could live in Africa at the moment, you know,” Harry said in a clip from an interview with ITV, which aired Sunday night in the U.K. The documentary film “Harry & Meghan: An African Journey” chronicles their recently concluded tour of southern Africa. It’s scheduled to air in the U.S. on Wednesday (ABC, 10 EDT/PDT).

In the couple’s first royal visit as new parents, they toured five countries to meet with community members working to fix issues of global warming, poverty, gender-based violence and access to education. 

“We just came from Cape Town, that would be an amazing place for us to base ourselves,” Prince Harry said. “But with all the problems going on there, I just don’t see how we’d really be able to make as much of a difference as we want to without the issues and the judgment of how we would be with those surroundings. It’s a very hard place to live when you know what’s going on, but then you’re slightly disconnected from it.” 

Still, the Sussexes plan on making Africa a huge part of their future. Prince Harry has been vocal about his passion for environmental conservation and battling climate change. As a frequent visitor to Africa, Harry previously called Botswana a place of “escapism” for him since his first visit after his mother, Princess Diana, died in a Paris car crash in 1997.

“The rest of our lives, especially our life’s work, will be predominantly focused on Africa, on conservation,” he added. “There’s a lot of things to be done and a lot of problems here, but there’s also huge potential.”

Also in the show, Harry addressed the rumored rift between him and his brother, Prince William.

“Part of this role and part of this job and this family being under the pressure that it’s under … stuff happens. But, look, we’re brothers, we’ll always be brothers,” he said, acknowledging the difficulty of the job of being a royal.

“We’re certainly on different paths at the moment,” Harry continued. “But I’ll always be there for him and, as I know, he’ll always be there for me. We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we’re so busy, but I love him dearly.”

The new husband and father added, “The majority of stuff is created out of nothing. As brothers, we have good days and we have bad days.”

‘He still considers himself to be in the hospitality business’: Mulvaney explains Trump’s Doral decision

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close 'He still considers himself to be in the hospitality business': Mulvaney explains Trump's Doral decision

In announcing the Doral pick just days earlier, White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney described the resort as “the best place”. Wochit, Wochit

Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said Sunday that President Donald Trump was “honestly surprised at the level of pushback” on plans to host next year’s G-7 summit at his Doral resort in Miami. 

Democrats and some Republicans, as well as government watchdogs, decried the administration’s decision to award the event to one of the president’s properties. Critics rejected Mulvaney’s claim that Doral had been selected as the “perfect” location after an exhaustive search. Many, including former White House officials, said it had the appearance of impropriety and others said it was a violation of the Constitution. 

Trump backed down in the wake of the criticism and declared the event would not be held at his resort “based on both Media & Democrat Crazed and Irrational Hostility.” 

‘There’s a perception of impropriety’: Former White House officials say Doral G-7 breaks precedent

Opinion: G-7 at Trump’s Doral resort? The original sin of this presidency is failure to divest.

Mulvaney said on “Fox News Sunday” that “we are all surprised at the level of pushback” and that it was “the right decision to change.” 

“We’ll have to find someplace else. And my guess is we’ll find someplace else that the media won’t like either for another reason,” he said. 

Mulvaney said Trump “saw an opportunity to take the biggest leaders from around the world, and he wanted to put on the absolute best show.”

“At the end of the day, you know, he still considers himself to be in the hospitality business,” Mulvaney explained. 

“He’s the president of the United States,” host Chris Wallace replied. 

“Yes, but that’s his background. It’s like, I used to be in the real estate business,” Mulvaney said. He tried to get Wallace, the son of “60 Minutes” reporter Mike Wallace, to relate by asking him what he did “before you were in the media.” 

“Nothing. That’s all I’ve ever done,” Wallace said. 

“But he wanted to put on a show. He wanted to take care of folks,” Mulvaney said. “He’s in the hotel business, or at least he was before he was the president.” 

Wallace asked Mulvaney if Trump understood that at the very least, it was a bad choice in terms of appearance.

“Well, I think he knows. He thinks people think it looks lousy,” Mulvaney said.

Clinton mocks Trump’s Turkey letter with Jimmy Kimmel joke — but move quickly appears to backfire

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6096040212001_6096038293001-vs Clinton mocks Trump's Turkey letter with Jimmy Kimmel joke -- but move quickly appears to backfire Gregg Re fox-news/politics/the-clintons fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc article 5ab3e0ab-af7c-5ef5-b771-bb44977e70d7

Hillary Clinton on Sunday posted a flowery fake letter from President John F. Kennedy to Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev to mock President Trump’s recent, casually worded missive to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, but the Twitter mockery quickly blew back in Clinton’s face, with commentators across the political spectrum suggesting the former secretary of state shouldn’t relish so openly in Twitter trolling.

What’s more, users quickly noted that Clinton’s team had lifted the letter, without attribution, from a segment on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that aired this past Wednesday night.

The kerfuffle came as Clinton’s feud with Tulsi Gabbard has prompted speculation that she might enter the presidential race — and a dare from Gabbard to do just that.

“Dear Premier Kruschev,” the mock letter “from the archives” during the Cuban Missile Crisis began, “Don’t be a d–k, ok? Get your missiles out of Cuba. … Give you a jingle later. Hugs.”

In his Oct. 9 letter to Erdoğan, first obtained by the Fox Business Network’s Trish Regan, Trump adopted a similarly familiar tone.

“Let’s work out a good deal!” Trump began. “You don’t want to be responsible for slaughtering thousands of people, and I don’t want to be responsible for destroying the Turkish economy – and I will. I’ve already given you a little sample with respect to Pastor Brunson.” Brunson was held as a prisoner in Turkey for two years before the Trump administration secured his release.

GABBARD REVEALS WHY CLINTON’S COMING AFTER HER

Trump continued: “Don’t let the world down. … History will look upon you favorably if you get this done the right and humane way. It will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don’t happen. Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be a fool. I will call you later.”

Sources close to Erdoğan told the BBC Thursday that the Turkish strongman “thoroughly rejected” the letter. Erdoğan reportedly took the letter warning against being a “fool” and tossed it “in the bin,” the sources said.

But, Clinton’s jab itself inspired a slew of mockery — including a post that highlighted Clinton’s October 2016 tweet, featuring a photo of herself as a little girl with the caption: “Happy birthday to this future president.”

The Washington Examiner’s Jerry Dunleavy flagged that the letter had appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s show. The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler remarked dryly, “Sometimes silence is golden.”

Trump 2020 campaign senior adviser Lara Trump earlier this month welcomed a possible Clinton presidential run in 2020, saying she was confident the president would defeat Clinton again.

“First of all, I just want to double down on the president and say if Hillary Clinton would like round two with Donald Trump, please let’s do that,” the wife of the president’s son Eric Trump said on “Hannity.”

“I would love to see a ’round two’ between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton because I think we all remember, Sean, not too long ago, all the media said that she was going to be the next president. We see Donald Trump in the White House now.”

Clinton herself had sparked a wave of speculation about a possible run with a pointed Oct. 8 tweet.

“I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren,” the president wrote. “Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting ‘C’ Subpoena!”

“Don’t tempt me. Do your job,” Clinton wrote back.

Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney got married on Saturday. Who is this guy?

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney got married on Saturday. Who is this guy?

Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is engaged to art gallerist Cooke Maroney. The “Hunger Games” star’s rep, Liz Mahoney, confirmed the news to USA TODAY Tuesday. Time

Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney are officially married – but who is the lucky guy?

Maroney, 33, had been dating the “Red Sparrow” actress, 28, since last spring, when outlets like People and Cosmopolitan confirmed they were seeing each other. Page Six says the couple was introduced by Lawrence’s friend, Laura Simpson.

According to People and The Cut, Maroney is part of New York’s art scene and is a director at Gladstone 64, a gallery on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The artists he represents include Lena Dunham’s father, People says.

He’s also worked with Richard Prince, Anish Kapoor and Bjork’s ex-boyfriend, sculptor Matthew Barney.

Before his work at Gladstone, he worked at the Gagosian gallery after studying art history at NYU, according to Elle and The Cut. And before that, he grew up with his parents in Vermont, Elle and Us Weekly report.

They’re married! Jennifer Lawrence weds art dealer Cooke Maroney

Much like Lawrence, Maroney is not a big fan of social media and has no public accounts. He doesn’t shy away from real-life social gatherings, however. Page Six and The Cut report he has been spotted mingling at his fair share of art parties and gallery openings.

Also like his actress wife, he is no stranger to interviews. He gave one to Artsy in 2015, where he talked about online art sales.

“In the art world, the way information is shared is rapidly changing,” he said at the time. “A growing group of internet-savvy collectors are searching for art online with galleries eager to provide it.”

In addition to being spotted out in New York with Lawrence, the lovebirds have also been photographed together in Paris and Rome.

They were also spotted attending the premiere of “The Favourite” together, which stars Lawrence’s ex, Nicholas Hoult – so Maroney seems to be pretty cool when it comes to Lawrence’s past relationships.

Before Maroney, Lawrence was also involved with Darren Aronofsky, who directed her in 2017’s “mother!”

Chris Wallace challenges Pete Buttigieg on big-money donor, perception among African-American voters

Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace challenged 2020 presidential candidate and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg this week about thousands of dollars in campaign contributions he received from a Chicago attorney who previously had tried to block the release of footage from Laquan McDonald’s 2014 police shooting.

Buttigieg’s campaign returned the money. Still, Wallace asked if the mayor’s ties to the donor, Steve Patton, will hurt his chances to make inroads with the black community.

“You were supposed to attend a big fundraiser in Chicago on Friday, and one of the hosts was the same city attorney who worked very hard to block [the] release of this video of police shooting Laquan McDonald,” Wallace said. “The lawyer backed out of the fundraiser. He also donated $5,600 to your campaign. Particularly at a time when African-Americans are trying to get to know you — isn’t that the kind of mistake… that you can’t afford to make?”

“This came to my attention in the morning and within an hour it had been taken care of,” Buttigieg replied. “The situation there, and justice and transparency for Laquan McDonald, is much more important to me than a campaign contribution, and we did the right thing as soon as it came to my attention.”

PETE BUTTIGIEG DODGES QUESTION ON MANDATORY ‘ASSAULT WEAPON’ BUYBACK DURING CNN INTERVIEW

A jury found former Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke guilty of murder last year after he shot McDonald 16 times in a span of fewer than 30 seconds. This past January he was sentenced to 81 months in prison. Three of his fellow Chicago police officers were accused of trying to cover up the murder but were acquitted on all counts.

“Can you understand where people would say, ‘well this is a guy who wants our vote, but he was taking money and was attending a fundraiser being held by this city attorney?'” Wallace asked Buttigieg.

Buttigieg repeated himself and said the campaign “took care of it” before shifting the focus to President Trump.

“And then we took care of it,” he repeated. “Look, I think the biggest question on voters’ minds is, ‘how is my life going to be different?’ Especially when that sun comes up that first day after Donald Trump is president.”

“The agenda that I’m putting forward — the issues that I want to tackle, I think will speak to black voters and to all voters who are seeking a better life in this country, and seeking to turn the page from the chaos and the corruption that we’re living under right now,” Buttigieg added.

Pacific Crest Trail hiker, 50, rescued after bad storm hits, says he ‘wouldn’t have survived another night’

A hiker who got lost in a snowstorm on the perilous Pacific Crest Trail in Oregon says he wouldn’t have lived another night if deputies didn’t answer his desperate call for help.

Robert Campbell, of Philadelphia, was rescued by two Marion County Sheriff’s deputies Friday, a day after the first winter storm of the year buried the trail he had been traversing. He was soaked, freezing and curled up in his wet sleeping bag in the shelter of a pit toilet. Part of his feet and toenails had turned blue.

“You count your blessings,” the 50-year-old told the Salem Statesman Journal on Saturday. “You thank your lucky stars. Not to be overly dramatic, because people have been through much worse, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t have survived another night. I’m convinced of that.”

Campbell set out on the famed trail near the Mexican border in early May with plans to trek all the way to the Canadian border some 2,650 miles away.

But, Campbell encountered trouble Wednesday night when snow began to fall. By Thursday, the snow had buried the trail. Not even a navigational smartphone app was able to keep him from straying miles off the trail and into a boulder field.

“You just know, if anything happens, I’m dead,” Campbell told the paper. “No one’s going to find me until spring.”

Many hikers have died trying to navigate the treacherous trail in similar conditions.

In 2017, the body of Chaocui Wang, who had quit her job in Shanghai, China, to hike the trail, turned up in a creek made swift by melting snowpack. In February, another hiker died after falling on ice. A falling tree killed a German hiker this year as well.

Campbell acknowledged the danger he faced and called 911 on Thursday. But, the call dropped partway through and he lost his phone signal. The Marion County Sheriff’s Office deployed a search-and-rescue team to find him after the distress call.

Meanwhile, Campbell said he trudged into an empty campground and found the only available shelter: a pit toilet. Cold and wet, he waited. Friday afternoon, rescuers passed the campground and finally found his footprints.

“I really think I owe them my life because … I couldn’t have made it another night,” Campell told The Associated Press from his motel room in Oregon. “My sleeping bag and tent are just completely soaked and probably ruined and I have no dry clothes.”

But, Cambell said his adventure wasn’t finished yet, declaring, “Canada or bust.”

“I’m going to be doing it a lot more smartly,” he told The AP. “Any chance of snow, I’m not going to even mess around with it.”

CNN’s Brian Stelter calls out ABC News’ gun-range video error: Network ‘has not explained what happened’

Westlake Legal Group Stelter-ABC CNN's Brian Stelter calls out ABC News' gun-range video error: Network 'has not explained what happened' Nick Givas fox-news/world/world-regions/turkey fox-news/world/conflicts/syria fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/kentucky fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc f67c5177-ba0a-5d7e-b029-3189824ad969 article

ABC News still hasn’t explained how it mistook footage from a Kentucky gun range for authentic video of fighting between Syria and Turkish forces but has promised to dole out internal “consequences” for the error, CNN’s Brian Stelter said Sunday.

“Let’s talk about the most egregious media error of the week,” he said during “Reliable Sources.” “This involves ABC News, showing video from a gun range in Kentucky that they said was video of a slaughter in Syria.”

“It’s actually from a Kentucky gun range,” Stelter added. “Now ABC says it regrets the error, but it has not explained what happened.”

The network issued a correction Monday after reportedly using video from the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, while the words “CRISIS IN SYRIA. ISIS prisoners escape as death toll rises in attacks,” appeared beneath it.

ABC APOLOGIZES FOR MISTAKING KENTUCKY GUN RANGE VIDEO FOR TURKISH BOMBING OF SYRIA

The footage first aired on Sunday‘s “World News Tonight” as anchor Tom Llamas claimed it showed a Turkish attack on a group of Kurdish civilians in a Syrian border town.

Both “Good Morning America” and “World News Tonight” issued an identical statement on Twitter expressing regret over the mistake.

“CORRECTION: We’ve taken down video that aired on ‘World News Tonight’ Sunday and ‘Good Morning America’ this morning that appeared to be from the Syrian border immediately after questions were raised about its accuracy. ABC News regrets the error,” the tweet read.

“What went wrong here?” Stelter asked. “An ABC source said to me, ‘there will be consequences internally,’ but they won’t say what that means.”
