Open thread for night owls: Indivisible plans to fight the Republican agenda in all 50 states

Julia Conley at Common Dreams writes—To Counter GOP's Attack on Democracy, Indivisible Unveils 50-State Plan to Thwart Trump Agenda: “” As the 2020 presidential election grabs headlines with Democrats lining up to challenge President Donald Trump, the grassroots organization Indivisible on Thursday unveiled its new plan to fight the Republican's anti-democratic agenda in all 50 states over the next year and a half. The Indivisible Initiative will be aimed at thwarting Trump's and the GOP's efforts to roll back voting rights and other key elements of democracy in state houses across the country, as well as building on the successes of progressives in the 2018 midterm elections. «We're rolling out new strategies and support to remake our democracy and circumvent Trump’s agenda, state by state—all 50 of them,» said the Indivisible Team, headed by former congressional staffers Ezra Levin and Leah Greenberg, in a letter to supporters and in a video posted to Twitter. [...] Now—with Democrats holding seven new governorships and state legislatures, more than 350 new state legislative seats, and in full control of the governments of six states—progressives have a chance to expand civil rights in states all over the country, Indivisible says. «Working group by group, state by state, is how we're going to reverse the Republicans' damage that eroded voting rights and entrenched their power. It's how we're going to build momentum for the bold, progressive policies we need. It's how we're going to remake our democracy and build power for years to come.» —Indivisible «With the state-level wins we scored in 2018, we have new leverage for states to stop Trump's agenda, turn back the Republicans' damage, and go on offense to advance bold progressive ideas and policies that'll shape the progressive landscape in 2019, 2020, and beyond,» wrote Indivisible in their letter to members.

Just the term brings with it a mysterious, dangerous air. A place for shadowy assassins to pick up their pay. International agents collecting on acts of extortion. Dusty hordes of Nazi treasure. However, Swiss giant UBS has admitted to something just as illegal, and a good deal more tawdry. They have been using their operations in the US to lure wealthy Americans into plopping their millions into UBS accounts, where they can evade taxes. The U.S. government has been probing UBS with help from sources such as a former UBS banker, Bradley Birkenfeld, who last year pleaded guilty to helping a California real estate mogul evade millions of dollars of taxes. Birkenfeld told investigators that UBS personnel went to elaborate lengths to help U.S. clients stash money in secret Swiss accounts.UBS is complaining that, shortly after the Bush administration came to town in 2001, they signed a get out of jail free card with the IRS; a contract that authorized UBS to hide their clients' identities as long as UBS promised they would follow the rules. Now UBS is holding to the principled position of no-takey-backseys.

Kamala Harris says 'Sign me up' for initiative to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day

Sen. Kamala Harris, a Democrat from California who is campaigning for the 2020 presidential election, is more than ready to forego a national holiday that is, well, shameful. Which holiday? Columbus Day.  Before we dig into why Columbus Day is extremely Not Good, let’s view the details of what Harris said, and what she’d like to see instead. At a town hall meeting in New Hampshire on Monday, Harris declared that she supports changing the name of the holiday on the second Monday in October from Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day. A voter had posed the question at the meeting, asking whether or not she would support an initiative to rename the holiday, to which Harris immediately replied, “Sign me up.”  Harris isn’t alone in wanting to make this important change. As of 2018, an impressive 55 cities had dropped Columbus Day. Berkeley, California, was the first city in the U.S. to make this change, way back in 1992. Four states (South Dakota, Vermont, Alaska, and Hawaii) have already made the change. Oregon doesn’t recognize Columbus Day as an official holiday to start with. What’s so bad about Columbus Day? Oh, where to begin?

Despite progress, LGBTQ Michiganders are still waiting for solid nondiscrimination protections

In many ways, the civil rights of Michigan’s LGBTQ communities are on a stronger footing than ever before. In May 2018, the state’s Civil Rights Commission expanded its interpretation of existing law to include sexual minorities, and announced it would start taking and investigating anti-LGBTQ discrimination complaints. In January, newly elected Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order banning discrimination in employment and provision of services in state government and among businesses and other organizations contracting with the state. She also eliminated the exemption for nonprofit religious organizations found in a similar order signed by outgoing Republican Gov. Rick Snyder. Former Attorney General Bill Schuette may have issued a 2018 opinion saying that the Civil Rights Commission was out of bounds when it extended discrimination protections to LGBTQ residents, but the commission—all of the members of which were appointed or re-appointed by Snyder—ignored him. The commission has also asked current Attorney General Dana Nessel, who helped win the court fight for marriage equality, to revisit Schuette’s opinion. In early February, she agreed to do so. And, of course, marriage equality has been the law of the land since 2015. While these developments mark huge strides forward for the cause of equal protection under the law, Michigan still has a long way to go. In a law being contested in federal court by the ACLU of Michigan, state-contracted foster care and adoption agencies are allowed to practice religion-based bigotry against sexual minorities. Equality Michigan, Michigan’s largest LGBTQ victim-advocacy organization, says that it served more than 400 victims of anti-LGBTQ discrimination and violence in 2018 alone. In the largest survey of its kind, in 2015 the National Center for Transgender Equality found widespread discrimination and harassment against transgender Michiganders in areas including employment, education, housing, and health care. Even with all the progress the state has made, the ACLU of Michigan fielded a complaint after a Kroger cashier refused to sell cigarettes to a transgender man whose gender marker didn’t match the legal name on his driver’s license, and one from a gay man who is being harassed by the security guard at his apartment complex. The solution, advocates say, is simple: The state must expand the state’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act to explicitly protect Michiganders on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

Will my children ever be free in a society founded on white supremacy?

I watch the world of permissive parenting from behind a glass of self- and socially imposed limitations. I enjoy observing the children’s huge smiles as their parents allow them to explore the world with few restrictions, if any. The benefits of allowing kids to experience the world around us are countless. I know that if I want to raise children with a healthy sense of attachment, it’s the way to go. Despite my knowledge, I practice a more restrictive set of parenting behaviors. Right now, my children still smile, but I know that one day they will realize how different my parenting style was from their friends’ parents’. Because, unfortunately, many of my parenting decisions are made from a place of anxiety and fear. I can’t help but wonder if I’ll be able to comfortably allow my children to participate in the freedom other children enjoy. As I watch the other children experience the freedom to make mistakes and have the option to just be kids, I feel guilty. At 3 years old, my son has a sense of what isn’t acceptable during play. And when he violates those boundaries, I have no problem sending dagger-filled glances his way. The looks I give him have been passed down. It’s a powerful glare that was perfected across generations of black motherhood. It’s a connection to my ancestors who limited their children’s actions in an attempt to preserve their existence. The times of imminent danger have passed, but the fear remains. My son doesn’t know about that world. He hasn’t heard the stories of black children punished for doing normal child things. He just knows I’m stopping him from running with friends, so he cries like a normal kid. But our world doesn’t see black kids as “normal.” It sees them as future criminals.

Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Hagedorn was paid $3,000 for speeches to far-right hate group

There is no apparent end to conservative efforts to put bug-crazy lunatics into positions of power in America. In Wisconsin, efforts are focused on elevating the obsessively anti-LGBT Brian Hagedorn onto the state Supreme Court. Hagedorn has at least two decades of conspiracy-minded and otherwise loopy anti-LGBT (and anti-abortion, and anti-take-your-pick) rhetoric behind him, so it's not as if he is an unknown quantity or someone who state conservatives believe could slip under the radar. He's argued that homosexuality is no different than sexually assaulting a dog, called the NAACP a «disgrace to America, and called Planned Parenthood a »wicket organization« committed to »killing babies." He's the Wisconsin version of Roy Moore, presumably minus a history of attempted child rapes. But lest we think there's no more to uncover about the man, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that as a state Court of Appeals judge for three years, he gave paid speeches to a Southern Poverty Law Center-designated anti-LGBT hate group. Hagedorn, a judge on the state Court of Appeals, gave speeches in 2015, 2016 and 2017 to Alliance Defending Freedom, earning more than $1,000 each time, according to his campaign and his filings with ethics regulators.
