Plan to relieve Manhattan gridlock with tolls gains momentum

NEW YORK (AP) - Bumper-to bumper, horn-honking traffic through Manhattan streets is about as New York as bagels and Broadway. A plan to ease that problem is tapping into another mainstay of city life: high driving tolls. The idea, called "congestion pricing,

The propaganda is working: Trump voters call MS-13 a 'serious' threat to U.S., but it ain't so

Donald Trump's support is based on racism. And the racism is based on Republican conspiracy theories. And those conspiracy theories are now, thanks to White House propaganda, taking root within his racist, gullible base. A majority of people who voted for President Donald Trump consider criminal gang MS-13 a threat to the United States, a new poll finds, indicating the Trump administration may be succeeding in inflating the perception of the gang’s national risk. Specifically, 85 percent of Trump voters call MS-13 a «very» or «somewhat» serious threat to the United States, and roughly half of them are worried MS-13 is going to target them or their families personally, which is a ludicrous, asinine theory based entirely on Trump-peddled propaganda. Before Trump's team settled on «MS-13» as their stand-in for Violent Ethnic People Coming To Get You, it would be a fair bet to say that precious few among Trump's base would even know what MS-13 was. Now half of them are worried that MS-13 is hiding under their floorboards. To make it clear, yet again, while there is a violent gang called MS-13 and has been for a few decades now, the current incarnation is largely a collection of disconnected teenagers whose lofty ambitions primarily revolve around menacing their schoolmates, not entire U.S. towns. They are not increasing their membership, have no central structure or leadership, have no substantive role in drug or human trafficking, and primarily target young Latinos. Those are their primary victims, not lily white Trump supporters breathlessly flipping through Republican fundraising emails. Everything else is a hoax. The vision of a paramilitary entity known as «MS-13» capturing and losing American towns, the notion that this violent but scattered group is a meaningful presence on the border in any capacity, and all the rest of it is a hoax crafted by white nationalists in the White House and racist online circles to justify an explicitly racist crackdown on innocent refugees. For all the hype in the governor’s race, MS-13 has been associated with three murders in Virginia this year, and two of the victims were MS-13 members themselves. To put that into perspective, there were 480 homicides in Virginia in 2016, and nine Virginians died in traffic accidents over Fourth of July weekend alone.

Congress can still do its job, but not without your help

Thursday’s New York Times contained an unusual op-ed. It’s not strange because of it’s conclusion that Donald Trump “is being manipulated by Russia,” or even it’s contention that Trump “actively participated in a Russian disinformation campaign that legitimized Russian denial and weakened the credibility of the United States.” Both of those statements seem solidly in the middle of the road following behavior in Helsinki that has caused numerous politicians and commentators to pull out the “T” word. What made the Thursday column interesting was that it came from a Republican Congressman, Will Hurd of Texas. Hurd’s blunt declamation stands in stark contrast to the general Republican tip-toe response that has come following Trump’s return from the Humiliation in Helsinki. While some Republicans, like Newt Gingrich, have started out with what appear to be fairly strong statements that Trump’s behavior with Putin was at least somewhat embarrassing, they’ve been quick to sound an all clear when Trump offered to smallest of token gestures. Others, like Mitch McConnell, pitched their response as more hypothetical responses to an possible executive doing something theoretically bad, leaving out such details as the fact that it involved Donald Trump. Hurd, an ex-CIA officer, had much less of an issue in pointing out that Trump’s behavior went beyond Not Normal, and into the realm of Extremely Dangerous. And he suggested something that hasn’t seemed to occur to other Republicans since Trump took office. As a member of Congress, a coequal branch of government designed by our founders to provide checks and balances on the executive branch, I believe that lawmakers must fulfill our oversight duty as well as keep the American people informed of the current danger. Republicans have over the last two years restricted that “oversight duty” to trying to cripple the FBI and launch new investigations of Hilary Clinton’s emails. So Hurd’s statement sounds pretty extraordinary … though the fact that Hurd scraped out a narrow victory in a district that Clinton won by over three percent and is looking at a Blue Wave bearing down on him this fall, likely concentrated his mind. And that’s the secret, of course. Hurd’s op-ed is unusual only because it’s coming from a Republican. There are plenty of Democratic voices making statements that are even more strident and determined. It’s just that right now, Republicans are keeping them from acting.

As the midterms approach, Republican women dodge the press

Politico has a long piece probing the difficulties of being a female Republican lawmaker or candidate in the age of misogynist pervert cretin Donald Trump. It's mostly depressing. How does Rep. Martha Roby come back after—gasp—criticizing Trump for his rancid «grab them by the -----» remarks? (Answer: by being studiously obsequious towards Trump on all other occasions.) How do Republican candidates feel about being «discriminated against» by other women for supporting Captain Trash Fire? (It's hurtful, and you and your swear-word-having signs and condom-waving daughters are very uncouth.) The piece features National Republican Congressional Committee Deputy Chair Ann Wagner offering that she simply proclaims «I'm focused on results» when confronted about Trump's malevolence toward women, which is a very Paul Ryanesque way to say that you'll put up with whatever garbage fires you have to put up with in exchange for another round of sweet, sweet tax cuts. Yes, that is indeed exactly how we got to the place we are at, and exactly how the Republican Party found itself stumping for child molesters and frantically throwing chaff at an investigation into Russian election tampering in the first place. Because of the «I'm focused on results» part, and not the «these are terrible human beings committing acts that should immediately disqualify them from the public trust» part. But the best summary of the current state of Republican women in the age of Trump is probably this: Politico's primary difficulty in putting the flattering profile of Republican women together was finding House Republican women willing to even be interviewed on the subject. Questions about what its like to be a women in the age of Trump appear to strike a nerve with some female Republicans. POLITICO reached out to well over half of the female members in the House. But most of them, including Roby, declined to be interviewed or ignored emails. House Republicans ignoring reporters during an election year? Yeah. That's a pretty good indication of how things are going—and it’s almost certain that it’s the in the age of Trump premise of Politico’s query that sent those lawmakers running. If you’re running for election as a Republican this year, the only thing more important than free publicity is making sure you don’t say anything in the next two months that risks angering the Hate Pumpkin. So talking to reporters about the trials his big mouth has put you through is not, by any measure, a wise move.

Voting Rights Roundup: GOP blocks Democratic effort to protect election systems from Russian hackers

Leading Off ● Election Security: Last week's bombshell indictments of 12 Russian nationals by special counsel Robert Mueller laid bare the threat to American election security: Russia did indeed hack various Democratic Party organizations and state election systems in an attempt to swing the 2016 elections to both Trump and the congressional GOP. Not only did Trump stand by Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin's side on Monday and categorically deny this truth despite all evidence, three days later, congressional Republicans banded together to block Democratic efforts to bolster election security.​ Campaign Action ​Mueller’s recent indictments revealed that Russian intelligence officers hacked into at least one state's election database and stole information on 500,000 registered voters. That unnamed state was likely Illinois, where election officials had previously said at least 200,000 voters had their information exposed in 2016. There's still no evidence that Russian hackers were able to alter election results outright in 2016, and voting methods such as paper ballots would make such an attempt very difficult. However, this interference with voter registration systems suggests that Russia could try to swing elections by removing voters from the rolls or altering their registration data, such as their addresses. That could produce Election Day chaos that deters voters as election officials scramble to correct registration rolls that have been tampered with, or even disenfranchise them altogether. Following the indictments, news separately broke that one of the country's top voting machine manufacturers admitted to Congress that it had installed «remote-access» software on some of that hardware that election administrators use to program voting machines and tabulate their results, exacerbating the risk of hacking. And in yet another incident, the FBI notified Maryland officials that the state's voter registration and online systems were built on software from a firm financed by Russian oligarch Vladimir Potanin, who is tied to Putin. (There's no indication that these systems have been compromised—at least, not yet.) Responding to this cavalcade of disturbing news, congressional Democrats sought to strengthen the integrity of U.S. elections by amending an existing government funding bill that would have given states hundreds of millions of additional dollars to make their election systems more secure, but House Republicans voted as a bloc to reject the amendment. Congress had previously authorized $380 million in funding this year for the federal Election Assistance Commission to provide grants to the states, but officials have been slow to put that money to use by upgrading their election systems.

Abbreviated Pundit Round-up: When things change, you can miss the signs if you're trained not to see

Yes, this week is different. It’s a subtle change but you can feel it. Some reporters and editors have had enough. Some Republicans have had it (see Trump Is Being Manipulated by Putin. What Should We Do?). Some voters have. And they, in November, will have the last word. Olivia Nuzzi/New Yorker: The second former official said it was important to remember that “something always goes wrong” with Trump. “There’s always some issue in the White House when it comes to responding to a crisis, and 90 percent of the time, it’s crises that they create themselves, and you have to go in with the understanding that the baseline level for these guys is full retard, basically.” “When that was their excuse, I couldn’t stop laughing. It’s so ridiculous.” “The one thing that makes this week so much different is they’re actually trying to fight back. Typically, Trump would say something completely insane and they would just let the media cycle sit. At least they’re trying to fight back. They’re fighting back in the worst possible way, but like, you can see the effort. You know these guys are fucking idiots, but the effort is there.” The second former official added, “You have a lot of people who are just a bunch of small-timers and clowns, so when they fuck up a response, you almost can’t blame them because you knew what you were getting, you know? When you have people who suck at this and then they fuck up a response, you can’t really be angry. This is what you have. It’s like having a puppy that shits on the floor, you can’t get angry at the puppy. The puppy doesn’t know any better.” xIf you always predict that this isn't the straw that will break the camel's back, you'll almost always be right but will also always miss when the straw breaks the camel's back.— Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) July 17, 2018 Josh Marshall/TPM: The Bigs Are Starting to Accept the Unimaginable Sometimes it’s specific, some kind of corrupt alliance; other times it’s amorphous, some kind of inexplicable hold Putin has over Trump by force of personality. But the kind of people who never said this kind of thing are saying it now. Somehow the President is compromised. Putin has something on him, or he has tempted his avarice with something. But there’s simply no innocent explanation for what we’re seeing. That’s the shift. The Monday press conference made cautious, prominent people start to come to grips with the reality that Donald Trump, as crazy as it sounds and as difficult as it may be to believe, is under some kind of influence or control by a foreign adversary power, whether by fear or avarice or some other factor. As yet, there’s little difference of behavior from elected Republicans. And I don’t expect any. What veteran foreign policy or diplomatic hands say on CNN is not the most important thing. But I think they are indicators of a change, a change of perception I expect is occurring among many who can’t yet speak.

In a press release here, the bank said the reason for the decline in profit was the reduction in the Treasury trading profit by Rs 73 crores and incremental MTM (mark to market) provision in the Treasury Book by Rs 41 crore owing to adverse market conditions, besides incremental one-time employee cost of Rs 33 crore because of increase in gratuity ceiling and wage revision. «But for these, the net profit would have been Rs 119 crores for the first quarter,» the release said.

TE Antonio Gates still on Chargers’ radar

It’s been more than a month since we’ve heard about the Chargers’ interest in Antonio Gates, but it sounds like the team’s former Pro Bowl tight end is still on their radar. Talking to ESPN.com’s Eric D. Williams, Chargers general manager Tom Telesco acknowledged that the team has reached out to Gates. However, he noted that the team still has time to evaluate all of their potential options. “There’s no update right now,” Telesco said. “We’ll see where things go next week. We’ve got a couple, different possibilities. We had talked about one obviously with Antonio Gates, and we’ll see where that goes. We’ve got some time here next week, so we’ll see what happens.”The team had indicated early in the offseason that they were ready to move on from the 38-year-old. However, things changed when projected starter Hunter Henry tore his ACL in May, opening a big hole in the depth chart.
