Activists plan marches, protests, and a voter registration drive to mark Hurricane Maria anniversary

As the anniversary of Hurricane Maria approaches, marking a full year in which the Trump Administration did anywhere from Nothing to Not Damn Much to help Puerto Rico repair and rebuilding efforts, the Latino Victory Project and Power 4 Puerto Rico are launching several efforts to channel the anger of now-displaced Puerto Ricans into votes against the Republican incumbents who sat on their hands during and after the crisis. The largest of those efforts is a $1.5 million campaign to register Puerto Ricans displaced from the island and to recruit new Puerto Rican candidates to run for office themselves. Florida is the most prominent target, but New York, New Jersey, Georgia, Texas, and other states also have large numbers of recently displaced Puerto Ricans. Activists like Melissa Mark-Viverito of Power 4 Puerto Rico are fed up. «We have a fiscal crisis that exists compounded by the emergency of the hurricane,» she said in an interview ahead of Monday's formal announcement. «People don't have jobs to go back to, people don't have homes that have been rebuilt properly and there are families that continue to be displaced because of medical issues. Events leading up to the one-year anniversary are really going to highlight the reality that Puerto Rico is living.» In addition to voter registration efforts, Puerto Rico activists plan on marking the Hurricane Maria anniversary with public action. A march on Trump Tower will take place on September 20, and if you don't have anything planned for the following Saturday, perhaps you'd like to stop by Mar-a-Lago along with a few friends: Planners there hope to erect beachside crosses and otherwise remind the golfer-in-chief that the nation's large Puerto Rican community is not simply going to let him forget the still-ongoing crisis.

Former UN secretary-general Kofi Annan has died

Kofi Annan, former UN secretary general, Nobel Peace Prize winner, and widely-regarded champion of human rights around the globe, has died at age 80. Annan became the head of the United Nations at a time when that organization was under attack and in disarray. He lead it through the crises following 9/11 and a second term that included the war in Iraq and widespread unrest. He was frequently named as the “world’s greatest diplomat,” who worked constantly to establish stronger ties between nations and fought against isolationism and factionalism. His reform of the tangled UN bureaucracy revitalized the organization. He was the first Secretary General actually elected to that office by a vote of the UN representatives. He was the founder and driving force behind the United Nations Global Compact, a program that works with business leaders to use sustainable practices, uphold human rights, support strong labor laws, and fight against corruption. In 2001, Annan shared the Nobel Prize with the whole United Nations as he and the organization were honored for their work to bring “a more peaceful world.” After his second term as Secretary-General, Annan served in other roles at the UN before resigning in 2012, frustrated by his inability to find a solution to the worsening crisis in Syria. Later, Annan became part of the group “The Elders” a humanitarian group formed by Nelson Mandela as a way for former leaders to share their wisdom.  Annan was criticized for failing to note the beginning of the genocide in Rwanda and for acting too slowly to halt the crisis. He was also accused of wrongdoing connected to the Oil-for-food program, though later investigations cleared him of charges of corruption. Annan was born in Kumasi, Ghana in 1938 while that nation was still under British domination as the Gold Coast. He was 19 when the country declared its independence. He came to the United States as a student and collected degrees in economics, international relations, and management.  He died in Switzerland after a brief illness.

Voting Rights Roundup: GOP floats impeaching N. Carolina Supreme Court in growing war on democracy

Leading Off ● North Carolina: On Friday, North Carolina Republicans escalated their assault on democracy to yet another level when state party executive director Dallas Woodhouse issued a barely veiled threat to impeach the state Supreme Court if its Democratic majority blocks the GOP's attempt to put several deceptively worded constitutional amendments on the November ballot in a widely criticized partisan power grab.​ Campaign Action ​In other words, Republicans are telling the justices, “Rule the way we want or we’ll boot you out of your jobs”—making no attempt whatsoever to disguise their contempt for the rule of law and judicial independence. And this is no idle threat, since the GOP has the two-thirds majority in the state Senate they’d need to oust these judges, thanks to gerrymanders that were ruled unconstitutional in 2017. This threat of a constitutional crisis comes amid the GOP's last-ditch effort to use their illegally obtained supermajorities to entrench their power before this November's elections, which are likely to give Democrats enough votes to sustain Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper's vetoes. Republicans previously rushed to change state law so that they themselves could write the language on the ballots describing these amendments, allowing them to describe the proposals in misleading terms. For instance, they’ve labeled an amendment to let GOP legislators gerrymander the judicial branch and pack the Supreme Court to end Democratic control a «nonpartisan merit-based system» of judicial appointments. Their other nefarious amendments also include one that would require voter ID, after the GOP’s 2013 voter ID law was struck down for racial discrimination; one that would shift many executive branch appointments from the governor to the legislature, including the state Board of Elections, so that Republicans can veto Democratic efforts to undo past GOP voter suppression; and one that would lower the maximum income tax rate to fiscally hobble future Democratic state governments. Making matters worse, a newly discovered loophole in the judicial gerrymandering amendment would let Republican legislators include «other matters» when passing bills to appoint judges—bills that aren't subject to gubernatorial veto. Combined with their proposal on executive branch appointees, these two amendments are designed to neuter the governor's remaining political powers and transfer them to a ruthlessly gerrymandered legislature.

Open thread for night owls: 'War is a Racket'

At The Baffler, “The Nostalgia Trap” podcast is hosted by historian David Parsons and produced by Peter Sabatino. Each week they engage in conversations with some of the left’s leading thinkers and writers in an exploration of “how individual lives intersect with the big events and debates of our era.” A recent session—War is a Racket—featured Nate Bethea. He co-hosts the podcast A Hell of a Way to Die, which looks at the intersection of leftist politics and American military culture: While serving as an infantry officer in the U.S. Army from 2007-2014, and deploying to Afghanistan in 2009-2010, Bethea reports that he “lived the Army values so hard that I became a socialist.” In this conversation, he discusses the hazards of being openly left while on active duty, the disturbing rise of MAGA-style fascism among veterans, and how his experience at war deepened his political commitments: Leftist veterans aren’t coming from the perspective that everyone should be in the military, but what we’re saying is that we’ve seen some of these policies put forth in the military, we’ve seen things like universal health care, things like the GI Bill covering your full tuition—we see these things, and we think, why can’t everybody have this? And we also have seen the waste and the stupidity . . . the containers full of shit burned in Afghanistan, vehicles valued at $300,000 abandoned in Iraq . . . I mean, if you take ROTC paying for my undergrad, and the GI Bill paying for my M.F.A., and if I had done a Ph.D., all of that tuition put together, and all the cost of living allowance they’ve given me, would not equal the cost of one stupid Humvee that we gave to the Iraqis and then ISIS stole, and then we bombed it with a bomb that cost more than the Humvee.

Utah lawsuit against medical marijuana claims it violates the 'religious freedom' of ... landlords

While being appropriately respectful to all major religions, the new lawsuit against legalizing medical marijuana in Utah is dumb and stupid and wrong and everyone involved should feel bad about themselves. In the complaint, opponents of Proposition 2 — which would legalize marijuana for people with an array of health conditions — said the ballot initiative would tread on their freedom of religion. The group says the measure would violate the religious beliefs of Walter J. Plumb, an attorney and active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who is the primary financier of the opposition campaign. Specifically, the claim is that barring landlords from refusing to rent to medical marijuana cardholders violates those landlords' «religious belief» that their tenants should just suck it up and deal with their illnesses using only the specific list of medicines a given landlord individually decides they approve of, a nonsensical sewage leak of an argument that shares the same fatal flaws as most other «religious» demands that everyone a certain «religious» person interacts with must be compelled to adhere to the «religious» edicts that Bob So-And-So demands of them. This is a landlord-tenant relationship. There's nothing religious about it. If your «religion» forbids you from renting to individuals who use certain pharmaceutical substances, get out of the rental business. Invest in coins instead, maybe? Boom, problem solved. According to this argument, it might be against a given American landlord's religion to consume certain «drugs, substances and chemicals”—but you can be absolutely assured that not once have any of these would-be Holy Apartment Renters checked to verify that their tenants with cancer were not using opioid-based pain medication because that would be monstrous and nobody would dare do such a thing. The »religious" objection being raised, then, is a purely faith-based presumption that Jeebus hates certain medically useful chemicals more than other medically useful chemicals, and given that we currently have no way of asking about it, it does not provide a plausible basis for law-making. (As far as Jesus goes, many of the Bible's greatest miracles revolve around providing ample quantities of alcohol so there's two strikes against the premise before we've even left the New Testament. But whatever.)

From trade war to Turkey's lira crisis, factors that led to rupee's decline

Rupee bleeds on geopolitical and macro stress; breakdown 70 mark to hit lifelow Forex: The gusty rupee went into a tailspin and suffered one of its worst stretches in history - crashing mercilessly to breach the key psychological 70-mark to end at a life-time low of 70.15 against the resurgent US dollar. An unprecedented speculative sell-off alongwith heavy dollar demand from importers sent the domestic unit tumbling by a steep 132 paise - its biggest weekly fall this year so far despite government's soothing rhetoric. The Indian unit collapsed to a life-time low of 70.40, triggering currency market intervention by the central bank to defend the beleaguered rupee. Panic and capitulation overshadowed trading sentiment as traders and speculators saw no signs that monetary authorities would
