Open thread for night owls: 100s of 1000s of activists pledge to protest if Trump cans Rosenstein

Jake Johnson at Common Dreams writes—As Right-Wingers Push Trump to Fire Rosenstein, Here's What to Do If He Does: As prominent right-wing provocateurs immediately took to social media on Friday to call on President Donald Trump to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein «today» after the New York Times reported that he suggested cabinet officials should invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office, progressive advocacy groups detailed rapid response plans to ensure Americans are organized and prepared to take to the streets if the president acts on these demands. «The Rod Rosenstein Rapid Response Plan: If actions are triggered BEFORE 2 p.m. local time —> events will begin at 5 p.m. local time. If actions are triggered AFTER 2 p.m. local time —> events will begin at noon local time the following day,» announced Jordan Uhl, a campaigner with MoveOn.org. Uhl also directed concerned U.S. residents to the TrumpIsNotAboveTheLaw.org website to find local demonstrations. While the Rosenstein story by the Times sent shockwaves on Friday afternoon, independent journalist Marcy Wheeler worried that reporting now «gives Trump his excuse to fire» the Deputy Attorney General. Chances are that if Trump does fire Rosenstein, it will be after the midterm elections, when Attorney General Jefferson B. Sessions III may also get shoved out. That’s because canning Rosenstein at this stage would likely spur even more Democrats to turn out for what many experienced analysts are viewing as having potential for overturning the Republican majority in the House of Representatives and possibly doing so in a big way. But it’s still more than six weeks until the election. And with everything that’s coming to light and likely to do so soon— given that Trump’s former consigliere Michael Cohen has spent hours talking to Robert Mueller’s investigative team—the pressure to try to turn off the investigation is surely greater than it’s ever been. So who knows what the squatter in the White House will do? It must be hard for the so-called “adults in the room” to have as much influence at tamping down his worst impulses after the Anonymous op-ed spilled the beans. On the other hand, perhaps we’ll see another interestingly timed story or two from The New York Times giving additional impetus to Trump’s obvious desire to send Rosenstein packing.  Will he do it or not? Just in case, if and when the firing takes place you can go here to find whatever protest action is slated for your locale. TOP COMMENTS • HIGH IMPACT STORIES QUOTATION “For women in America who come forward with stories of harassment, abuse, and sexual assault, there are not two sides to every story, however noble to principle might seem. Women do not get to have a side. They get to have an interrogation. Too often, they are questioned mercilessly about whether their side is legitimate. Especially if that side happens to accuse a man of stature, then that woman has to consider the scrutiny and repercussions she’ll be subjected to by sharing her side … I have been afraid of speaking out or asking things of men in positions of power for years. What I have experienced as an actress working in a business whose business is to objectify women is frightening. It is the deep end of a pool where I cannot swim. It is a famous man telling you that you are a liar for what you have remembered. For what you must have misremembered, unless you have proof. The women I know, myself included, are done, though, playing the credentials game.”                ~~Amber Tamblyn, The New York Times (September 2017) TWEET OF THE DAY BLAST FROM THE PAST On this date at Daily Kos in 2008—Three Times Is Enemy Action: James Bond's wealthy nemesis may have had an obsession with gold, but he judged, quite correctly, that if people keep putting your plans awry, that was likely their intent. In 1982, the same year John McCain entered the Senate, a bill was put forward that would substantially deregulate the Savings and Loan industry. The Garn-St. Germain Depository Institutions Act was an initiative of the Reagan administration, and was largely authored by lobbyists for the S&L industry—including John McCain's warm-up speaker at the convention, Fred Thompson. The official description of the bill was «An act to revitalize the housing industry by strengthening the financial stability of home mortgage lending institutions and ensuring the availability of home mortgage loans.» Considering where things stand in 2008, that may sound dubious. It should. Seven years later, the S&L industry was collapsing. What was the cause? Garn-St. Germain handed the S&Ls a greatly expanded range of capabilities, allowing them to go head to head with full service banks, but it didn't give them the bank's regulations. Left to operate in an anarchistic gray area, S&Ls chased profits, indulged in amazing extravagances, and cranked out enough cheap mortgages to fuel a real estate boom. They also experimented with lots of complex, creative -- and risky -- investments, even though they didn't have the economic models to really determine the worth of the things they were buying. The result was a mountain of bad debts and worthless «assets.»  Does any of that sound eerily (or nauseatingly) familiar?

Under threat from the GOP, the lawyer for Kavanaugh's accuser asks for one more day

Buckle up, folks. After Senate Judiciary Chair Chuck Grassley threatened to call a committee vote on Monday unless he got a definitive answer on testimony from the woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in high school, the lawyers for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford sent a response making a “modest request” for one more day.  But the letter from the lawyer for Dr. Blasey Ford, Debra Katz, is a master class in exposing the bullying tactics Grassley and the GOP have employed all week in the ongoing negotiations over whether Ford would ultimately testify.  First, here’s the quick-and-dirty on how things went down today between the two camps (keep in mind that Dr. Blasey Ford spent her afternoon detailing the death threats she’s received to the FBI):  xSome tick-tock on the Ford testimony talks, per senior D: --GOP sent counteroffer to Ford's lawyers at 2:30 p.m., asked for response by 5 p.m--Ford’s lawyer responds, they need 24 hours to consult with her--6:30 p.m., GOP asked Ford attys to respond by 10 p.mAnd here we are.— Seung Min Kim (@seungminkim) September 22, 2018 At this point, Katz responds to Grassley with a letter including the play-by-play of how nasty Grassley and GOP Judiciary Committee staffers have treated Dr. Blasey Ford all week. At the end, Katz concludes:  «The 10:00 p.m. deadline is arbitrary. Its sole purpose is to bully Dr. Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family. She has already been forced out of her home and continues to be subjected to harassment, hate mail, and death threats. Our modest request is that she be given an additional day.»  Check out the letter below. I encourage you to read it in its entirety.

Trump tells the inspector general to release documents over warnings from agencies and allies

Donald Trump has ordered the FBI to release a collection of texts from current and former officials at the FBI and DOJ, along with documents associated with a FISA warrant despite warnings from both the FBI and “key allies.” Unsatisfied with the idea that sensitive information might be redacted, Trump has bypassed the normal declassification process and ordered the inspector general to produce them “on an expedited basis.” Trump has also warned that if he doesn’t get what he wants, “I can always declassify if it proves necessary.” Since the beginning of the year, Republicans have been demanding release of portions of the FISA warrant application for Trump adviser Carter Page. Also from the beginning, the FBI and Department of Justice have warned that doing so would not only endanger sources and methods, but interfere in an ongoing investigation. Since interfering in that investigation is exactly the point, both Donald Trump and his supporters in the House have revisited this effort over. And over. And over. And they’re doing it again with a last minute push to release documents that Republicans can mine for an October surprise.  Previous efforts have resulted in documents that, while heavily redacted, still prove that the basic position behind claims by Trump and Nunes—that the FISA warrant was based either entirely, or mostly, on information from the memos prepared by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele—is simply wrong. Page had, by the time a warrant was issued in 2016, already been the subject of multiple other FISA warrants, all of which pre-dated any work by Steele. But this time, Republicans are out to sharpen the focus. They have only insisted on the declassification of the pages of the FISA warrant associated with Steele’s work. Since that’s all they’ve asked for, it makes it easy to claim that’s all there is. In addition, they’ve asked the FBI to release all texts from a laundry list of Trump targets: James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr. It’s a list they hope to sift not just for matters related to the Page warrant, but for phrases and words that can be taken out of context to generate new Pizzagates, sons of Pizzagate, step-grandsons of Pizzagate, and so on. Did someone say “insurance policy?” Was someone tracking down a leaker? There are ways Republicans can turn everything into a potential conspiracy. And they will. Though Republicans are still trying to pretend that Trump is following “standard procedures,” the situation is nowhere near normal. Because the immediate response of the FBI and DOJ was to refuse to issue these documents at all.

Ben Carson's HUD is stocked with high-paid former campaign aides with no housing experience

The Trump administration’s rampant grifting isn’t the only kind of corruption going on. There’s also a staggeringly high level of good old “give high-paying jobs to unqualified supporters” corruption, as a Washington Post look at Ben Carson’s Housing and Urban Development Department shows. Twenty-four out of 70 of the best-paid HUD appointees have no housing experience, 16 of those 24 worked on either the Carson or Trump campaigns, and among five who quickly got big promotions and pay raises, three did not list bachelor’s degrees on their resumes. Political appointees who did not list housing policy experience on their résumés and who landed in high-paying roles include Carson’s chief of staff, Andrew Hughes, a former plumbing and HVAC salesman who had also worked as a special projects coordinator at the University of Texas System’s Washington lobbying shop. [...] Mason Alexander, a former event manager, entered HUD last January as a special assistant making $107,435 a year. A HUD staffer who recently resigned said Alexander had started in executive scheduling, planning Carson’s travel and listening tour. By September, he was promoted to senior adviser, though not in a policy role, and received a 23 percent raise, bringing his salary to $131,767. Alexander’s résumé says he has an associate degree in communication from Tallahassee Community College and a professional background in strategic planning. The résumé noted that Alexander had helped prepare press staging areas for Trump campaign rallies. In one case, someone with no housing experience who opposes government benefits and spread conspiracy theories about the Clinton campaign was appointed to head an Obama-era program that the Trump administration had “effectively ended.” He was then promoted to be senior adviser in the Office of Community Planning and Development By contrast, seven out of the 66 top-paid political appointees in the Obama administration lacked housing experience. It’s likely that they all at least embraced the mission of the agency they were working in.

Bad policies and systemic bias are driving huge increases in Native American incarceration rates

Conditioning parole and probation on the ability to pay fines and fees is bad policy, period. Just as cash bail and disproportionate fees and fines discriminate against those least able to pay, so too do these fees imposed on people on supervised release. In Montana, both fees and conditions of release, which come with their own cost, have an outsized impact on Native Americans. Both poverty and geography are penalized under the current system. Disadvantaged people of every background are routinely released on supervision with little chance of satisfying its requirements. “Without treatment, housing, transportation and other basic services,” the ACLU’s Sarah Mehta and Robin Gomila note, “people under supervision are unable to meet the conditions and responsibilities—as well as costs—imposed by supervision.” Native Americans, especially those who live on reservations, are more likely to live in poverty and less likely to have access to the services they need to satisfy supervision requirements. When they fail, they’re re-incarcerated. Requirements weren’t always this severe. The number of people under supervision has quadrupled since 1980. Over the same period, punitive restrictions increased in popularity, including those that imposed costs on those on probation or parole. Other deleterious changes were driven by cost. Example: The state used to pay for GPS monitoring, drug tests, and treatment. Now, individuals do.  Changing norms and increasing caseloads (without commensurate increases in resources) changed the role of supervision officers. If they ever were able to focus on rehabilitation, that’s not the case now. Rather, they’re incentivized to issue formal violations. Sometimes, that’s the only option. Too often, though, officers perceive the most extreme option as the surest way to protect themselves from perceived failure or liability.  Melissa Smylie managed to get herself released from prison by becoming her own lawyer. But once under supervision, she was subject to stifling—and unreasonable—requirements. Melissa had to quit the job she’d pre-arranged because her probation officer wouldn’t let her drive; she had to turn down the next job she found because it was casino-related, though in a totally separate location. When she fought back against “baseless” probation violation accusations made by her supervision officer, Melissa had to move again, without her daughter; the same accusations barred her from signing a lease agreement or enrolling in college. She had to fight just to retain custody of her daughter, though there was no formal basis for removing her. Throughout, Melissa was ineligible for food assistance—because she was on supervision. Melissa escaped Montana’s criminal justice system, but many do not.

Self-appointed #MeToo movement expert Kellyanne Conway says Kavanaugh allegations don't count

Settle down, everyone. Kellyanne Conway is here to tell you what #MeToo is and isn’t, and as in her role as self-appointed decider, she has decreed that Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh are not part of the #MeToo movement. «Let's not conflate the larger Me Too movement with whatever did or did not happen in the summer of 1982, 36 years ago, that was not spoken about for the first time ever until 30 years later, that judge Brett Kavanaugh has completely denied,» Conway said in an interview on CNN. [...] Conway said she commends the women who have come forward in the past, but added that many #MeToo cases were the result of one woman coming forward, leading to «others [coming] forward and [saying] thank you so much for coming forward because now I don't feel alone in saying that person was a complete, he was just an awful person.» «That's what's happened in most of these cases,» Conway continued. «I know it is not for lack of trying that people are trying to prove the same here, and have not. So we will have the testimony next week.» So because only one woman has come forward, it doesn’t count. Like, according to Conway, it only counts as #MeToo if there are multiple women saying “me too with that specific man.” And all the while Conway and Donald Trump and Senate Republicans and anonymous makers of death threats are making sure any woman who was thinking about speaking up and saying “Brett Kavanaugh didn’t just assault Christine Blasey Ford, he assaulted me, too” has strong reason to think twice, think three times, and stay quiet. What are Conway’s qualifications as boss of the #MeToo movement, anyway? Here’s a woman who works for the groper-in-chief, a man whose accusers are in the double digits, one of whom is suing him for defamation, and she’s taking it on herself to say who does and doesn’t count. This, my friends, is chutzpah. Let’s take back the Senate. Can you chip in $1 to Nevada’s Jacky Rosen and Texas’ Beto O’Rourke?

Vikings’ Dalvin Cook to miss time

Vikings running back Dalvin Cook has been officially ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Bills, the team announced on Friday. The same goes for defensive end Everson Griffen, who is dealing with a knee injury. Cook injured his hamstring in last week’s tie against the Packers. The injury may cost Cook time beyond this weekend’s game, as coach Mike Zimmer says that his availability is up in the air for the team’s short turnaround against the Rams on Thursday.This was expected to be a bounce back season for Cook, but he has yet to find his footing in 2018. Cook averaged just 2.5 yards per carry in the Vikings’ season opener against the 49ers, and he had just 38 yards rushing in last week’s contest against Green Bay.The good news for the Vikings is that they can rely on Latavius Murray, one of the more talented RB2s in the NFL, to fill the void for however long Cook is out. They also have Michael Boone and Roc Thomas on the roster plus fullback C.J. Ham, so they might not have to go out-of-house for depth.
