As some Californians are urged to stay indoors due to toxic smoke, farmworkers continue working

As multiple deadly fires have forced some school districts in California to shut down classes and led some workplaces to urge employees to work from home for a few days, another group of workers is still laboring outside and breathing in toxic smoke.  Multiple viral images show farmworkers continuing to labor in fields as heaps of dark smoke from the Woolsey fire in southern California loom overhead. In one photo, no visibly-clear air can been seen as several figures harvest in the fields. At least one worker does not appear to be wearing a protective face mask. The Central Coast Alliance for a Sustainable Economy (CAUSE) told Pacific Standard that “even though California's labor laws call for employers to determine if conditions are too harmful for farmworkers to work … state officials rarely travel to rural areas to enforce these protections.” Many work because they simply have no choice but to work. “Unfortunately, when farmworkers can’t work due to the hazardous conditions,” CAUSE’s Lucas Zucker told Remezcla, “they lose income because they are often paid piece rate (by the box picked), and if they are undocumented are unable to qualify for federal disaster relief.” Yet undocumented workers pay billions in taxes annually. Farmworkers also continued to work during firestorms in the state last year, though in some family-owned vineyards in northern California, employers stood side-by-side with workers in trying to save their land. “This time around,” Remezcla continues, “CAUSE saw a rise in farmworkers wearing protective masks, but ‘still too many without protection.’” The fires have now killed 66 people and hundreds more are missing, according to recent numbers. “Natural disasters disproportionately impact low-income communities and communities of color,” Think Progress reports, leaving farmworkers particularly vulnerable. During your next meal, remember that undocumented farmworkers feed America, and ask what yourself what you can do to help support them.

Daily Kos congratulates Arizona Secretary of State-elect Katie Hobbs

Today, Daily Kos congratulated newly elected Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs. Daily Kos was pleased to endorse her and other Democrats for key posts in August, and the Daily Kos community contributed over $360,000 to Democrats in those races. Hobbs joins Jena Griswold in Colorado and Jocelyn Benson in Michigan in flipping previously GOP-held offices. “Hobbs, along with Griswold and Benson, will improve voting in myriad ways, from fighting to stem the tide of dark money, implementing automatic voter registration, improving election security, and increasing turnout among voters of color and other communities often underrepresented at the ballot box,” said Daily Kos political director David Nir. “This is why Daily Kos was pleased to support these Democrats in their bids to expand the voting rights of millions of Americans. "Republican secretaries of state have been working to undermine ballot box access and election fairness for years, and under Donald Trump, these assaults are now coming from the very top levels of U.S. government. The election of the Democrats as secretaries of state will prove vital to protecting our democracy.” Daily Kos has led the way in supporting Democrats across the country this cycle, raising over $8.7 million for candidates in small grassroots donations in 2017-2018. We will continue this crucial work into the 2020 cycle.

White House ready to send a man to his death to get Turkey off Saudi Arabia's back about Khashoggi

White House ready to send a man to his death to get Turkey off Saudi Arabia's back about Khashoggi

The Trump administration is not just refusing to hold Saudi Arabia’s feet to the fire over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. It’s actively looking for ways to help Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman evade pressure and scrutiny, up to and including sending a man to his death to encourage Turkey to back off about Khashoggi. Turkish President Recep Erdogan wants to get his hands on Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish cleric living in the U.S., in much the same way that MBS wanted to get his hands on Jamal Khashoggi. And the White House would like to help Erdogan—if that would convince him to give the Saudis a pass. The White House pushed the Justice Department and the FBI to find a way to extradite Gulen to Turkey, where he would very likely be killed: Justice Department officials responded to the White House's request saying the review of Turkey's case against Gulen two years ago showed no basis for his extradition and that no new evidence to justify it has emerged, the U.S. officials and others familiar with the requests said. Trump administration officials then asked for other options to legally remove him, the U.S. officials and others said. They said the White House specifically wanted details about the terms under which Gulen resides in the U.S. Officials from the law enforcement agencies informed the White House there is no evidence that Gulen has broken any U.S. laws, the U.S. officials and others familiar with the requests said. Turkey really wants Gulen, and Trump would like to make Turkey happy without going so far as to distance himself from MBS or taking other serious action over the Khashoggi killing. It’s a pretty astounding trifecta of horrific national leaders.

McConnell sets up votes on worst of Trump nominees, gives the finger to Jeff Flake over his threats

Campaign Action Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has apparently decided to give a middle finger to Sen. Jeff Flake, the retiring Arizona Republican who says he'll vote against judicial nominees in committee and on the floor until McConnell allows a floor vote on his legislation to protect the Mueller investigation. At the end of the day Thursday, McConnell filed cloture on two of the very worst of Trump's nominees: district court nominee Thomas Farr of North Carolina and 8th Circuit nominee Jonathan Kobes. The votes will happen when the Senate returns after Thanksgiving. Farr has been waiting for a vote since the Judiciary Committee passed him back in January. Farr «helped draft North Carolina's voter suppression law, defended racially discriminatory gerrymandering and may have lied to the Senate about his role in disenfranchising black voters when he worked for the late Sen. Jesse Helms.» He's a nightmare, his history of voter suppression extreme. And he lied to the Judiciary Committee about it. The uproar following his success in the Judiciary Committee might be why McConnell has been reluctant to have the floor vote, but it's typical of him that he'll use it now to give a massive «fuck you» to Flake. Kobes is one of six Trump nominees that the American Bar Association has rated «not qualified.» He's General Counsel for Republican Sen. Mike Rounds, which is apparently how he got the nomination. In explaining the rating they gave Kobes, the ABA wrote that «has neither the requisite experience nor evidence of his ability to fulfill the scholarly writing required of a United States Circuit Court Judge. … [H]e was unable to provide sufficient writing samples of the caliber required to satisfy Committee members that he was capable of doing the work of a United States Circuit Court Judge.» None of the writing that he did provide, they say, «is reflective of complex legal analysis, knowledge of the law, or ability to write about complex matters in a clear and cogent manner.» The ABA's opposition to him didn't stop Chairman Grassley; he just held the hearing before they provided their rating and didn't allow them to testify about it. One thing for sure we know about Kobes is that he's anti-LTBTQ and anti-choice. Because of course he is. Flake, of course, can't stop these nominees on his own. It's yet another opportunity for Republican Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) to furrow their brows and express their concern. There are, however, another three Republicans who with Flake voted that special counsel protection bill out of the Judiciary Committee: Grassley, Thom Tillis (NC), and Lindsey Graham (SC).

In 2015, the Department of Interior gave the tribe the go-ahead to bring two parcels of land totaling 321 acres into trust. All reservation land in the U.S. is held in protective trust by the federal government, although the protection part has often been observed in theory more than reality. The tribe had planned to build a 123-unit elder and tribal housing facility and a casino. But some businesses and rival casino operators objected and sued, arguing that a 2009 Supreme Court ruling meant that only tribes recognized at the time of 1934 Indian Reorganization Act could bring land into trust. The Mashpee Wampanoags weren’t recognized until 2007. Vice Chair Jessie Little Doe Baird said that once government took Native children away because they were too Indian. Now trust status is being taken because certain tribes supposedly are not Indian enough. She said the 127 other tribes recognized after 1934 should expect this move against her tribe to be repeated against them. • Maybe Mar-a-Lago will be the newest federal lock-up: Seth Meyers on “Late Night” suggests tongue-in-cheek that Donald Trump might have had some other prison reforms in mind Thursday when he endorsed a bill that would reduce some mandatory minimum sentences.

The #FiveWhiteGuys trying to take down Pelosi are stupid beyond words

Democrats are coming off their biggest House victory since Watergate, having been led by Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised $250 million, dramatically outraising the GOP’s counterpart ($174 million), and likely half that money can be directly traced back to Pelosi. She was a tireless campaigner, and an unselfish one—she very clearly allowed Democratic candidates in tough Red districts to distance themselves from her, promising to not vote for her. Can you imagine the traitor in the White House doing anything similar? Pelosi was also at the helm of a party strategy that laser-focused candidates on one issue: the election. Everyone was screaming about impeachment and Donald Trump and climate change and on and on and on. All good and worthwhile issues! But Pelosi was focused on winning, and she saw what the polls said: that the only issue that moved votes was health care. Let Trump flail and fling poo against the wall, she and her party would not be distracted.  And then, her party won. And it won big. And a week and a half after Election Night, the wave keeps lapping on the shore, en route to a stunning 39-41-seat wave victory despite facing a heavily gerrymandered pro-GOP map.  Sure, Trump helped. But by remaining focused and undistracted by his insanity, our candidates punched through the suburbs, reshaping the political map and setting Democrats up nicely for increased gains in 2020.  But Republicans hate Pelosi and have demonized her, in large part because of her incredible effectiveness, so a cabal of House Democrats have conspired to force her out. Mind you, they’re not running against her. That would actually be okay! Problem is, they know they don’t have the votes to elect anyone else, so instead, they’re trying to use the rules of the House to simply block her.  The #FiveWhiteGuys are Reps. Seth Moulton (MA-06), Ed Perlmutter (CO-07), Rep. Tim Ryan (OH-13), Kurt Schrader (OR-05), and Bill Foster (IL-11), apparently all begging for a 2020 primary battle. (And I’m eager to help them get it!)

Overflowing crater lakes carved canyons across Mars

Today, most of the water on Mars is locked away in frozen ice caps. But billions of years ago it flowed freely across the surface, forming rushing rivers that emptied into craters, forming lakes and seas. New research has found evidence that sometimes the lakes would take on so much water that they overflowed and burst from the sides of their basins, creating catastrophic floods that carved canyons very rapidly, perhaps in a matter of weeks.

The most surprising developments of the NHL season so far

The one constant in any given NHL season should always be to expect the unexpected because there is always going to be something that surprises you — maybe even shocks you. The team that you thought might stink could turn out to be good for some bizarre reason. The player you pegged as an offseason flop might catch lightning in a bottle and excel. The player who was supposed to put the Stanley Cup contender over the top? Well, that might be the one who flops and ends up holding the team back. We have seen a lot of those scenarios playing out over the first quarter of the NHL season. Among them... The Max Pacioretty trade is working...for Montreal After more than a year of constant rumors and trade speculation, the Montreal Canadiens finally put an end to all of the drama and sent Max Pacioretty, their best goal-scorer and one of their best players from the past decade, to the Vegas Golden Knights.
