Open thread for night owls. It just never ends: Church covered up sex abuse by 300 priests in Penn.

At The New York Times, Laurie Goodstein and Sharon Otterman—write ‘They Hid It All’: Catholic Priests Abused 1,000 Children in Pennsylvania, Report Says: Bishops and other leaders of the Roman Catholic Church in Pennsylvania covered up child sexual abuse by more than 300 priests over a period of 70 years, persuading victims not to report the abuse and law enforcement not to investigate it, according to a searing report issued by a grand jury on Tuesday. The report, which covered six of the state’s eight Catholic dioceses and found more than 1,000 identifiable victims, is the broadest examination yet by a government agency in the United States of child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. It catalogs horrific instances of abuse: a priest who raped a young girl in the hospital after she had her tonsils out; a victim tied up and whipped with leather straps by a priest; and another priest who was allowed to stay in ministry after impregnating a young girl and arranging for her to have an abortion.

House Democrats want to have a word with notorious racist troll Chuck Johnson

Vicious right-wing troll Chuck Johnson doesn’t have to comply with an interview request by Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee now—but the request is a signal that if Democrats retake the House in November’s elections, Johnson might face a subpoena: The Democratic lawmakers want information about Johnson’s work with Republican activist Peter W. Smith during the 2016 presidential campaign to obtain emails allegedly hacked from Hillary Clinton, according to the Monday letter from Shannon Green, a Democratic staffer on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Those efforts reportedly involved contact with people who purported to be Russian hackers in possession of emails stolen from Clinton. Johnson is the rare Republican so vile he’s even been banned by Twitter. That was for threatening a Black Lives Matter activist—all part of being an open white supremacist—but he’s also a Holocaust denier. And wouldn’t it be interesting to know what contact he had with Russia in 2016? Let’s elect some Democrats and find out!

Asylum seeker returned to U.S. by judge says she 'spent the entire ride to my home country worried'

Asylum seeker returned to U.S. by judge says she 'spent the entire ride to my home country worried'

The migrant family thrown onto a plane for deportation but then immediately returned back to the U.S. after a judge threatened to hold Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III in contempt of court said they were left in the dark about what was happening to them. “I spent the entire ride to my home country worried about what would happen to my daughter and me once we landed,” mom “Carmen” said. Carmen and her child had been waiting for their case to play out in immigration court, when they were ushered out of a family detention facility in the early morning to be sent back to El Salvador, despite the Department of Justice (DOJ) having agreed “to delay deportation hearings for Carmen until midnight on Thursday so her lawyers could appeal her removal orders in court,” Vox reported last week. Learning of their imminent deportation, an infuriated U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan threatened to hold Sessions and other administration officials in contempt unless the plane was turned back. “Someone in the government made a decision to remove those plaintiffs and I’m not happy at all about that,” he said. “And if they aren’t brought back forthwith, I’m going to issue orders to show cause why people should not be held in contempt of court, and I’m going to start with the attorney general.” During that time, Carmen, part of an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lawsuit challenging Sessions’s move making asylum claims just about impossible for victims of domestic and gang violence, sat on a plane in horror. “Carmen's attorneys have said she has been raped and stalked by her husband who has threatened her and preyed upon by gangs in her home country,” NBC News reports. It was only when the plane landed that she found out what was happening back in Judge Sullivan’s courtroom, when an official from the flight told them they would be coming back. “When he told me that I could return to the United States, I was so happy,” she said. “To keep fighting for my case and for my daughter.”  Meanwhile, “immigration officials blamed her deportation on a data error and confusion over why her deportation had been delayed.” Sure, Jan. Or perhaps it’s deportation-happy officials who have shown themselves perfectly willing to mislead or coerce parents into agreeing to be deported without their kids, as Sessions has been accused of removing cases from an immigration judge—under his jurisdiction as attorney general—“apparently because he was too slow to issue deportation orders.” What we also know is that Sessions and his mass deportation thugs apparently ignored their own department’s instructions and tried to deport an asylum-seeking mom and kids to possible death, and a judge threatened to hold them in contempt of court for it.

Disneyland's non-union workers are getting a big raise ... thanks to unions

Disneyland recently negotiated a $15 minimum wage for thousands of its unionized workers, and now it’s announced that a $15.75 minimum wage is coming for its non-union workers. Yay for workers getting raises, but there’s a lot going on here! First, many of Disneyland’s union workers, in particular members of UNITE HERE, continue to have an $11 minimum wage, which is far from a living wage in southern California. So Disney is willing to give its non-union workers a raise while it continues to resist negotiating the same amount with at least one of its unions. Second, note that while some of the unions got a $15 minimum wage, non-union workers will get a $15.75 minimum—in both cases to start in January. Isn’t that interesting? “Whenever the unions get something good, the company tends to bump up the non-union workers as well because it keeps them from wanting to unionize,” said Artemis Bell, a Disneyland janitor who served as an SEIU United Service Workers West contract negotiator. “They essentially ride our coattails.” Just one more way unions help workers beyond their own membership—by making capitalists anxious.
