In stunner, conflicted Denver City Council kills contracts with private prison giants. Councilwoman who led the charge figured she’d be the lone dissenting vote, but then seven others joined her. Their vote will force major changes — many of which are unknown.

Marvel’s Chairman Is Also Donald Trump’s Largest Donor

Westlake Legal Group h0ilcbr_g_v6Na7Jzzk0YRlDe0qpQbm1IctaXbSOAPM Marvel’s Chairman Is Also Donald Trump’s Largest Donor r/politics

I’ve been a Marvel fan for my entire life (since the 80s). I still vividly remember the first episode of the X-Men cartoon where Cyclops explains “People fear what they don’t understand.” And Jubilee saying that she’s just a kid who wants a normal life, and saying “I didn’t ask to be born this way.”

Then I remember sentinel’s chasing after and capturing mutants. Chasing Jubilee through a mall to put her in a detention center…

Then I remember Senator Kelly spouting fear mongering stories to cause distrust of mutants and justify their capture and removal…

Then I discover the guy making the most money off that show, and all the toys I bought, is perfectly fine with treating migrants as animals and people of color as lesser people.

Canceled my comic subscription. It’s not much, but I can’t do nothing.

Megathread: AG Barr, Gaetz, AOC, others call for investigation into the death of Jeffery Epstein

Westlake Legal Group OYVrm7gcUz9nwYDRCHae0vMJ0flnxhl9MTtlbkWvsa4 Megathread: AG Barr, Gaetz, AOC, others call for investigation into the death of Jeffery Epstein r/politics

Several members of Congress are calling for investigations following the apparent suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced financier who faced federal sex trafficking charges before his death.

Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, called Epstein’s suicide an ‘impossibility’ that needed further congressional investigation.

‘When an impossibility occurs involving powerful people and possible criminality there must be an investigation to end speculation,’ Green wrote. ‘Because the public has a right to know, I’m calling for a congressional investigation.’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., voiced concern about Epstein’s death.

‘We need answers. Lots of them,’ she wrote on Twitter. She then retweeted a post from former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti, in which Mariotti says that the criminal probe into Epstein would conclude because ‘no one else was charged in the indictment.’

Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., called on the Bureau of Prisons to ‘provide answers on what systemic failures of the MCC Manhattan or criminal acts allowed this coward to deny justice to his victims.’

Attorney General William Barr on Saturday decried the death of wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein in federal custody while he awaited charges on sex trafficking, saying the apparent suicide ‘raises serious questions.’

‘I was appalled to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead early this morning from an apparent suicide while in federal custody. Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered,’ Barr said in a statement.

‘In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death,’ Barr added.

Unsealed documents detail alleged Epstein victim’s recruitment at Mar-a-Lago

Westlake Legal Group t9N7UzYqFmwRPE-cwmPDylUAFmXpHIyrSNmR5WuKJp4 Unsealed documents detail alleged Epstein victim’s recruitment at Mar-a-Lago r/politics

One of Trump’s employees was recruited by Ghislaine Maxwell to be a sex slave for Epstien. Maxwell was Epsteins Madame.

Nothing anywhere indicates any involvement of Trump and the accuser has listed several high profile people as those who were involved….Trump is not accused of any wrongdoing by her

Oh yeah, and Ghislaine Maxwell was at Chelsea Clintons wedding lol

Ocasio-Cortez calls for ‘answers’ after Epstein found dead in jail cell

Westlake Legal Group zorB-xC12DdmActDz-2X2jl70dsqQRdD6Rdkel8dGQ0 Ocasio-Cortez calls for 'answers' after Epstein found dead in jail cell r/politics

It’s pretty impressive that he figured out a way to kill himself, there shouldn’t be any place to tie something to hang himself in that cell, did he try to swallow his bedsheets or something?

edit: For reference, Epstein was in the SHU at the MCC, which also held El Chapo until recently. El Chapo’s cell looked like this

Democratic Voters Rank Bernie Sanders as ‘Most Qualified’ 2020 Candidate to Solve US Healthcare Crisis

Westlake Legal Group vrqM_6J2Z9Cx7plhCO5LbtB5bHWpKDQIJF3YUvd3b_I Democratic Voters Rank Bernie Sanders as 'Most Qualified' 2020 Candidate to Solve US Healthcare Crisis r/politics

Here’s my take. People as they get older have a hard time taking in new information, so they often go back to what they learned decades earlier.

So 15-20 years ago, when you heard about countries that implemented some sort of socialized healthcare, all you did was hear about the negatives. The high tax payer costs. The delays. The lack of resources. I’m not that old and I still remember the “fact” when in middle school that most states in the US had more MRI machines than all of Canada. I have no idea if it was true at the time, but these statements stick in people’s minds, especially when you’re 60+ years old.

So ultimately they’re just afraid to deal with the growing pains and afraid that the system will suck “because”.

What bothers me most about this is, the system will only suck if we allow it to suck. The ACA is not a success because a reasonable percentage of Americans didn’t want it to ever succeed. It could and should have worked. There’s no reason why that system couldn’t be tweaked and changed into a system that works reasonably well. But when you have so many opposing it, it will never happen.

To me, that’s the biggest issue I have for M4A. It’s not that it’s a bad idea or won’t work. My fear is that we won’t give it a chance to work. We won’t get behind the idea and give it the actual time and resources needed to succeed. It really shouldn’t be that complicated considering we have so many countries to use as a model for success. They’ve done so much of the ground work all we have to do is implement the good stuff and do our best to eliminate the bad. It just won’t happen with people like the Freedom Caucus around.

White Supremacists Committed At Least 73 Murders Since Charlottesville: ADL

Westlake Legal Group IY2kaEwBk9yuzC1riZkk8aXGRh8ZnFTIgdpAhW10vlE White Supremacists Committed At Least 73 Murders Since Charlottesville: ADL r/politics

According to the report, the recent attacks are part of a four-year resurgence in white supremacist activity and activism driven in large part by the rise of the “alt right.”

You’re correct about Trump’s part in bring these people out of the shadows. I would like to add that I’m tired of the phrase “alt-right” the article uses. Conservatives constantly offer political cover for these supposed alt-righters.

“Very fine people”

“Too early to politicize this tragedy.”

“But AntiFa!”

The alt-right is now just the right. Whatever distinctions separated them before are long gone. They act in each other’s interests and offer the same policy for governing the nation. Call the entire group what you want: the GOP, the right, conservatives, whatever. There’s no functional difference between the right and the alt-right under Trump.
