Abbreviated pundit roundup: Suborning perjury; taxing the rich; making TVA a clean energy leader

At The New Republic, Marcy Wheeler, known for a decade and a half to her many readers as emptywheel, writes—How Trump Suborns Perjury: Even without BuzzFeed’s explosive report about Michael Cohen, the evidence shows that the president has persuaded his associates to lie to Congress and the feds: BuzzFeed set off a cascading series of controversies last week when it reported that President Donald Trump had “directed” his longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about a Trump Tower deal in Moscow that was being negotiated during the 2016 election. The immediate takeaway was that, if the report were true, then Trump had committed a straightforwardly impeachable offense. The allegation was “so cut-and-dried that even Republicans would be hard-pressed not to consider impeachment,” wrote Aaron Blake in The Washington Post. Democrats in Congress raised the alarm. “If the President directed Cohen to lie to Congress, that is obstruction of justice. Period. Full stop,” Rhode Island’s David Cicilline, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, tweeted. But then, as happens so often in this presidency, the story quickly became clouded by uncertainty and accusations of media bias. The office of the special counsel issued its first public response to a specific story since Robert Mueller began investigating Russia’s involvement in the election. “BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” the statement read. You could practically hear the sighs of relief in the Oval Office. Trump even went so far as to express gratitude to Mueller, his most implacable enemy: “I appreciate the special counsel coming out with a statement last night,” he said. “I think it was very appropriate that they did so, I very much appreciate that.” But there’s no reason to doubt that Trump has, in fact, repeatedly instructed subordinates to tell lies to Congress and law enforcement authorities, including lies that amount to crimes. The difference is that the media outlets that reported those other cases didn’t say, explicitly, that the president “directed” his aides to lie. Another important difference is the way in which Trump gets his subordinates to lie, which has served to delay the moment when we all admit that he is quite clearly suborning perjury. xFive people where killed today in Florida and our government continues to send their thoughts and prayers. #Enough— David Hogg (@davidhogg111) January 24, 2019

Okay, it’s a little delayed given that the Harper’s Index regularly comes out around the 15th of the month previous to the publication date, but better late than …. you know. It was the fault of my vacation, which was 50 percent dedicated to serious vegging and 50 percent catching up on reading books (remember those?). I didn’t actually catch up, but I did shorten the stack somewhat: Portion of Americans who believe another world war is likely: 2/3 Percentage of Americans who say they would be “not at all” willing to volunteer to fight in another world war: 42 Who say they would be “very” or “somewhat” willing: 31 Estimated percentage chance that the UN’s “worst-case scenario” for  global warming is too optimistic: 35 Year by which a Norwegian company aims to use dead fish to help  power cruise ships: 2021 Percentage of US college graduates whose first jobs do not typically require a college degree: 43 Of college graduates whose jobs five years after graduation do not typically  require a college degree: 35 Average value of labor that US employees annually donate to their employers by  not taking vacation days: $561 Time at which Arkansas shuts down the website on which Medicaid recipients must report their work hours: 9:00 pm Number of states with lower rates of internet access than Arkansas: 0 Percentage of 18- to 29-year-old social-media users who say it’s acceptable for their data to be used to personalize ads: 54 Who say it’s acceptable for their data to be used to show them messages  from political campaigns: 35 Number of degrees since 1999 by which the Leaning Tower of Pisa  has straightened: 0.55 TOP COMMENTS • HIGH IMPACT STORIES QUOTATION “The feminists had destroyed the old image of woman, but they could not erase the hostility, the prejudice, the discrimination that still remained.”                  ~~Betty Friedan, The Feminine Mystique, 1963 TWEET OF THE DAY xThis shutdown put in place by @realDonaldTrump violates treaties between the federal government and tribal nations. #HonorTribes and end the shutdown today! https://t.co/lZhBql8egZ— Utah Diné Bikéyah (@UtahDineBikeyah) January 23, 2019 BLAST FROM THE PAST On this date at Daily Kos in 2006—Extend Debate on Alito: It seems clear to me that the significance of Alito's views on executive power, access to the courts, civil liberties, the right to privacy, the federal Commerce power, and a myriad of other issues, is only now coming into proper focus. More time is needed for the Senate to properly carry out its Constitutional function of advice and consent. An appointment to the Supreme Court is for a lifetime. Samuel Alito is 55 years old and, like Justice O'Connor, is likely to sit on the Court for a quarter century if confirmed. Given the stakes, an additional period of consideration and debate seems appropriate. The length of this additional period need not necessarily be long nor the debate protracted. It seems to me that with a fairly brief period of consideration, the members of the Senate can chart a course for appropriate action regarding Judge Alito.

Trump allows South Carolina foster care agency to discriminate against Jewish families

After months of speculation, the Trump administration has used the cover of a shut-down government to greenlight the kind of discrimination that recalls policies of Nazi Germany. Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar signed a waiver on Wednesday that allows Miracle Hill Ministries, a federally funded Protestant foster care agency in South Carolina, to break federal law. The law that Miracle Hill Ministries has been given the right to break is one that usually protects people of faith from being discriminated against. In this case, Jewish families are being discriminated against by Miracle Hill Ministries, by being denied the chance to foster children in Miracle Hill’s network—under the foster agency’s “strict religious requirements.” The waiver argues that HHS nondiscrimination regulations are broader than those outlined in the specific Foster Care Program Statute, which specifies that agencies receiving federal funding can’t deny foster parents based on race, color, or national origin — but not religion. As the Intercept points out, multiply indicted Texas State Attorney General Ken Paxton has issued a request for a similar waiver, but in his case he hopes to get federal waivers allowing discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation as well as religion. It’s relatively hackneyed at this point to mention how the “religious freedom” that conservatives speak of seems to refer to all of the things religions want to discriminate against others for. And yet, here we are again.

Blue Origin launches New Shepard rocket for 10th flight

At its Boca Chica, Texas, location, SpaceX suffered a delay when a storm toppled the nose section of the Star Hopper test vehicle, setting back plans for testing. Meanwhile, across the state at Blue Origin’s launch facility, the company that could be SpaceX’s biggest rival in the near future got off another flight of its suborbital New Shepard rocket. x x YouTube Video The 10th flight of the reusable New Shepard booster and capsule still didn’t carry any human crew, but it did bring along eight NASA-sponsored experimental payloads. Those payloads spent a brief time in space as the capsule arced to an altitude of 107 km (355,000 feet or 66 miles) in a flight lasting just over 10 minutes. New Shepard is slated to begin carrying human beings on suborbital flights later in the year and is expected to eventually become Blue Origin’s platform for space tourism. Meanwhile, Blue Origin is also well along in the development of its much larger New Glenn vehicle. The scheduled first flight of the large (large) New Glenn orbital rocket is slated for 2021. The actual launch doesn’t occur until just after the 42-minute mark in the linked video, so scroll ahead if impatient. The booster lands on its tail at the 50-minute mark, with the capsule parachuting to earth at 52:50. Meanwhile, the first uncrewed mission for the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule has been rescheduled for Feb. 7.

Harris Wofford, a Martin Luther King ally who played key role in JFK's narrow win, dies at 92

Former Sen. Harris Wofford, a Pennsylvania Democrat who served from 1991 until he was defeated by Rick Santorum in the 1994 GOP wave, died Monday at the age of 92. Wofford, whom the New Republic dubbed “The Man Who Was Everywhere” in a must-read 2014 profile by Jason Zengerle, had a very long career in public service despite only spending a few years in elected office. Among many other things, he was an early supporter of Martin Luther King Jr. and an aide on John F. Kennedy’s 1960 presidential campaign. He even helped convince JFK to defy his campaign advisors and call Coretta Scott King after her husband was arrested, a politically risky move that probably tipped the election towards Kennedy. Wofford was born in upstate New York into a wealthy family of transplanted Southerners, and at the age of 11, he accompanied his grandmother on a six-month tour around the world. In perhaps the first example of Wofford’s Forrest Gump-like presence at major historical events, he personally witnessed Italian dictator Benito Mussolini declaring that he was withdrawing Italy from the League of Nations, an announcement that Wofford later recounted was followed by “a fascist torchlight parade.” However, it was his stop in India, where Wofford saw and became fascinated by Mahatma Gandhi and his nonviolence movement, that would most impact his future. Wofford would later say that he returned from the trip as a “know-it-all foreign policy expert.” In high school, Wofford founded a group called Student Federalists that called for united world government. The organization would grow to include 30 chapters, and when he was only 18, Newsweek published an article predicting he would be president. The Student Federalists would later transform into the group that is now known as Citizens for Global Solutions. Wofford went on to serve stateside in the Army Air Corps during World War II and later enrolled in graduate school at the University of Chicago. In 1948, he married fellow student Clare Lindgren, and the two traveled throughout India and Pakistan, which had just gained their independence from the British Empire and where Wofford studied the recently murdered Gandhi and civil disobedience. Wofford would later recount that Gandhi’s disciples asked him about the nascent civil rights movement back in America, a movement that he would soon become immersed in.

Dorian Stefano Tarantini Collaborates with Swarovski for Autumn/Winter 2019 collection

Dorian Stefano Tarantini, the multidisciplinary artist and designer behind M1992, teamed up with Swarovski to inject signature sparkle into his Autumn/Winter 2019 collection, marking a third season of collaboration with the brand, as per the Swarovski website.Over 466,000 crystals glitzed up five looks from the Nineties Britpop-inspired range, including a black suit and white leather separates, as well as various hoodies emblazoned with the Union Jack, and “Suburra” and “I’m Common” in crystals, according to the website.As per the website, Tarantini commented: “Using Swarovski crystals as a total surface for college-style menswear garments has been a way to reverse the rules and experiment through the sparkle and three-dimensional glare that only Swarovski radiates with such intensity.”Tarantini’s label M1992 presented its Italian style and quality collection. The use of fine fabric that draped the towering personalities of the models looked impressive. The sharply defined look was based on the 1990s fashion sensibilities and tailored styles.Not many know that Tarantini was once a DJ who later entered the world of fashion with his M1992 label. The 1990s Britpop culture highly influenced his Autumn/Winter 2019-20 collection.The perfectly shaped silhouettes and fine cuts did not fail to impress. A bit flared cropped trousers, monochromes, jersey suits, oversized jackets, white turtleneck sweaters and knitwear polos were some of the highlights of his collection.The designer picked clues from his own teens when he frequented London and picked up the British fashion prevalent in the 90s. He fondly relives those memories through the collection.M1992’s womenswear collection had a wider range this season. The '60s-style mini dresses, cool pop prints, and geometric patterns ruled the collection. Again the highlight included the white jacket-and-trousers studded with signature Swarovski crystals.For the uninitiated, Swarovski is an Austrian producer of lead glass (commonly called crystal) headquartered in Wattens, Austria. The company is split into three major industry areas: the Swarovski Crystal Business, that primarily produces lead glass jewelry (commonly called crystal jewelry) and accessories; Swarovski Optik, which produces optical instruments such as telescopes, telescopic sights for rifles, and binoculars; and Tyrolit, a manufacturer of grinding, sawing, drilling, and dressing tools, as well as a supplier of tools and machines, as per Wikipedia.According to the website, Swarovski Crystal Business is one of the highest grossing business units with a global reach of approximately 2,800 stores in around 170 countries, more than 27,000 employees, and a revenue of about 2.6 billion euros (in 2016).Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the collection.    https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin
