It has been just over two weeks since Republican racist Mississippi Representative Cindy Hyde-Smith joked about attending a “public hanging” while at a campaign stop alongside fellow Mississippi Republican racist Governor Phil Bryant. Since then, Popular Information has been examining Hyde-Smith’s campaign filings with the Federal Election Commission to see who is giving this monster money. Last week it was revealed that Google had donated $5,000 to her campaign—seemingly a day after Hyde-Smith’s terrible comments were made. Earlier today it was reported that Hyde-Smith’s campaign received $2,700 from openly white supremacist Washington state businessman Peter Zieve. This, of course, is not surprising, as white supremacists love white supremacists. Now Popular Information is reporting that almost a full two weeks after Hyde-Smith’s statements were reported, retail monster Walmart decided the coast was clear to give her a little blood money. Hyde-Smith’s remarks hasn’t [sic] dissuaded Walmart from contributing to her campaign. She faces Democrat Mike Espy in a runoff election on November 27, and an FEC filing on Monday revealed that Walmart, the nation’s largest retailer, has contributed $2000 to the effort. [...] Hyde-Smith also received contributions on November 18 from defense contractor Leidos ($5000), railroad company Union Pacific ($5000), manufacturer Boston Scientific ($2500), and steelmaker Nucor ($2000). For its part, Google said in a statement that it had made its contribution a day earlier than the FEC filing said, and had not learned about the statements by Cindy “Lynching is a funny topic in Mississippi” Hyde-Smith. While this reasoning doesn’t excuse Google’s support of a clearly racist candidate for office, it gives it an excuse for handing her cash right after she says a verifiable, easy-to-understand-as-racist thing in front of other human beings. Walmart’s excuse, which it hasn’t given yet, seems to be … it waited a couple of weeks and it supports racism. Democrat Mike Espy is facing this bigot in a November 27 runoff. Go here to make calls for him.
As the legislatures and governors in the states that expanded Medicaid this election—Idaho, Nebraska, and Utah—start to look at how to implement the program, they'll likely be tempted to follow the Arkansas model of adding in work requirements. They shouldn't. In just the three months since Arkansas's work requirements waiver was approved by the Trump administration and implemented, more than 12,000 people have lost coverage, with another 6,000 possible by the end of this month. Under their waiver, non-elderly, non-disabled people have to report their employment and must work 80 hours per month. If they don't meet that requirement for three months in a calendar year, they lose coverage. At least nine of those former enrollees are suing the state as plaintiffs in a federal suit challenging the provision brought by the National Health Law Program, the Southern Poverty Law Center and Jonesboro-based Legal Aid of Arkansas. The suit charges that the Trump administration exceeded its authority under the Medicaid statute in approving the work requirement waiver, but also that the state is unlawfully requiring enrollees report their hours solely online. The Affordable Care Act requires that states allow enrollments online, in person and by mail or telephone. Arkansas ranks 48th in the nation for internet access. Thirty percent of the population has just one internet provider, and about 20 percent of people there only have a smart phone for internet access at home. With 17 percent of the residents living below the poverty line, many don't have that access at all, and that includes the Medicaid population, working and not. It's not clear right now what percentage of the people who've lost coverage actually do meet those work requirements, but don't have the capacity to report their hours. To make matters more troublesome, even the Trump administration hasn't entirely signed off on this program. The state was supposed to demonstrate to the administration that the program is working. It is required to commission an independent analysis to evaluate the effectiveness of the program, but so far hasn't even started to look for that evaluator because it hasn't designed an evaluation tool that the administration will sign off on. They got a «do over» instruction from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on November 1, telling the state its proposed evaluation design «should be better articulated and strengthened.» Seriously, the Trump administration flunked their first draft, that's how bad it was. Even one of the administration's harshest critics, Judy Solomon at the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities in Washington, D.C., said that «I'm kind of not surprised that it hasn’t been approved, because despite my disagreement with CMS [under] the Trump administration allowing these [work requirements], they do seem to at least have some seriousness about … having evaluations that make sense.» When Trump's CMS is more serious than Arkansas, you know the state has a big problem.
You might remember avowed white supremacist asshat Christopher Cantwell. He’s the neo-Nazi who videotaped himself sobbing about being connected with the hate rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. He has a new project, promoting a primitive-style mass shooter video game called Angry Goy II. Get it? It’s the sequel to the equally terrible Angry Goy. The earlier video game featured action that included throwing Jews into ovens. According to LGBTQ Nation, Cantwell got himself a brand new version of the hate-filled game, in which you walk around mass-murdering LGBT people and people of color. “Instead of taking out your frustrations on actual human beings, you can fight the mongrels and degenerates on your computer! Use guns, knives, pepper spray, and more! Lay waste to wave after wave of shitdicks, shitskins, shitstains, and the k—s they serve,” Cantwell writes in promotional copy for the game on his website. “All White men should hunt down and mercilessly kill as many t—nies, f—-ts, n—–s, k—s, and cucks as they possibly can, in the new hit game Angry Goy 2!” Cantwell sent to Gab, a far right social network popular with white supremacists and neo-Nazis.

Hopkins (@RuthHHopkins) November 19, 2018 BLAST FROM THE PAST On this date at Daily Kos in 2012—President Obama can and must take serious action on climate change and without Congress: After a presidential campaign during which «climate change» was almost never even whispered by the candidates nor a question asked about it during their debates, the term finally made an appearance at President Obama's first post-election press conference Nov. 14 when Mark Landler popped the question. The president responded at some length, hinting that «climate change» would be paid some serious attention during his second term, starting out with an «education process.» Unfortunately, as A Siegel illustrated in a spot-on critical essay analyzing the subtext of what Obama said, how it related to the president's first-term record on climate change and the mess that White House press secretary Jay Carney made the next day of the president's comments, that education process needs to start in the White House with Obama's senior staff. So far, «encouraging» is an optimistic assessment of Obama's reply to Landler's question. Lots of crossed fingers among environmental advocates. At Mother Jones, Chris Mooney has done what many of those advocates will be doing over the next couple of months, laying out what Obama could accomplish even with a Congress that is brimful of climate-change deniers and policy delayers.

Vulnerable asylum seekers waiting for weeks at the southern border for the chance to ask for asylum in the U.S. aren’t the immigration crisis, the immigration crisis is the ongoing detention of vulnerable migrant children, the population of which has, yet again, hit a record high, the Trump administration confirmed last week. “Currently, there are approximately 14,000 minors in the unaccompanied alien children program, a number that can fluctuate up or down,” said Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) spokesperson Evelyn Stauffer. In September, the administration confirmed 12,800 kids in federal custody, the previous record. By comparison, HHS had 2,400 kids in custody in May 2017. Looking at the administration’s recent actions and trends, this number will only go up before it goes down, because Trump officials have only expanded and prolonged a prison camp for migrant kids in the Texas desert, and taken steps to make it harder for migrant kids to go to sponsors, who are oftentimes family members. The includes the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrests of dozens of potential sponsors who have stepped forward to take in a child, leading to two Democratic senators, Kamala Harris of California and Ron Wyden of Oregon, to introduce a bill to protect potential sponsors. This should be a no-brainer to pass, but congressional Republicans have fallen in anti-immigrant line at their own electoral peril. The Democratic House, though, should take it up and pass it next year. What’s also risking ballooning the number of detained children even more is the fact that Donald Trump’s nominee to head ICE, Ronald Vitiello, has refused to rule out whether the administration will officially revive family separation at the southern border, even as children kidnapped from parents under this policy are still in U.S. custody nearly 120 days past a federal judge’s deadline. When every day in detention is another day of trauma, enough. “Right now,” Sen. Harris said in a statement, “unaccompanied children are being held in detention facilities or living in tent cities due in part to potential sponsors’ fear of retribution from ICE for coming forward. This is an unacceptable obstacle to getting these children into a safe home, and we must fix it.”

The Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs — two of the best teams in the NFL — slugged it out on “Monday Night Football” in Week 11.
