Tuesday Night Owls. Analysis: 12% of virus-related stimulus $$ could hold temperature rise to 1.5°C

Night Owls, a themed open thread, appears at Daily Kos seven days a week It's about saving the country, and shutting up Ted Cruz. Donate now to help bring back the White House and Senate.  Joseph Winter  at Grist writes—Tackling climate change seemed expensive. Then COVID happened: Climate deniers and opponents of aggressive climate action have long argued that governments can’t afford comprehensive measures to confront the climate crisis. The Green New Deal, for example, has been ridiculed as a “crazy, expensive mess” by the Republican Policy Committee. But then COVID-19 challenged preconceived notions about the limits of government spending. Since August, world governments have pledged more than $12 trillion in stimulus spending to dig their way out of the coronavirus-caused economic downturn — a truly mind-boggling amount of cash that represents three times the public money spent after the Great Recession. How does that compare with the money that would be needed to fight climate change?

I am beyond sick and tired of being told I must learn to 'understand' Trump voters

Here we go again. As the country careens toward an election outcome which thus far (fingers crossed!) appears to portend a significant, wide-ranging Democratic victory—much like it did two years ago—we are once again hit with a deluge of well-intended advice and explanations (from both the left and right) reminding us how we Democrats must learn to understand, if not necessarily empathize, with the views of those who, in spite of all that has occurred over the last four years, will continue to support Donald Trump. That we need to reach out and extend our hand to those who—despite an out-of control pandemic that has taken over a quarter million American lives, and despite an economy that continues to teeter over a vast abyss—have clung to the belief that a future under the aegis of Donald Trump and the Republican Party is somehow preferable to Democratic governance. There are myriad keen, sympathetic analyses explaining the reasons why Trump voters support authoritarianism, ignore or rationalize Trump’s racism, abusive acts, and repugnant policies. Many of these seem to imply that Democrats need to come to terms with the belief systems of these people in order to somehow “bring them around.” Nope. Election Day is in less than two weeks. Will you chip in $3 or more to help our dazzling slate of endorsed Democratic candidates win big?

Despite Trump 'outreach,' new polls show Jews are sticking with Biden and Democrats as much as ever

So Trump thinks Jews should vote for him, huh? That’s what he has said on multiple occasions, including on August 20, 2019, when, as part of a comment about Israel, he smeared Jews with the old canard of dual loyalty: “I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty [to Israel].” Riiiiight. Because why wouldn’t we love someone who proclaimed that there were “very fine people on both sides” of a rally where one of the sides consisted of neo-Nazis chanting “Jews will not replace us?” But hey, a creamsicle-colored guy can dream, right? Looks like that’s one more of Trump’s dreams—delusions? self-deceptions?—that will never come true. An American Jewish Committee poll, described by the organization as “the most comprehensive Jewish organization poll of Jews in the United States,” surveyed 1,334 people by telephone from Sept. 9 through Oct. 4. It found that 75% of respondents plan to vote for Joe Biden, compared to only 22% planning to vote for his opponent—you know, the one who brag-tweeted about being called the “King of Israel.” Election Day is in just around the corner. Can you spare $3 or more to help Daily Kos-endorsed Democratic candidates win on Nov. 3?

There are 644 billionaires in this country, and they’ve made almost $1 trillion during the pandemic

Good news everybody! Not everybody is being hurt by our global pandemic and economic crisis! In fact, one group of very special people, best known for making lots of money—usually for one silly thing like being wealthy enough to invest in PayPal—are making a killing! Billionaires! Business Insider reports that since March of this year, the American billionaires amongst us (who are we kidding? They are usually above us … frequently on private planes and such) were able to add $930.7 billion to their collective net worth. Hold on while I respect the flag and listen to the playing of the National Anthem by some public school kids who have had their school’s music program cut.

Democrats didn't just outraise Republicans last quarter. They outspent them—brutally

Daily Kos Elections is pleased to unveil our new charts rounding up third-quarter fundraising numbers for every major party nominee for the House and the Senate. We said two weeks ago that this fundraising quarter would be unlike any we’ve ever seen, and we were more right than we knew. Altogether, Democratic candidates competing in this year’s Senate races raised $401 million from donors while Republicans took in $163 million—a gulf that would have been simply unthinkable even during the 2018 blue wave. Democrats also spent $373 million compared to $195 million from Republicans and ended Sept. 30 with a $184 million to $141 million cash-on-hand lead.

Cruz still thinks he can be president and thinks the courts are how to make it happen

With an eye toward his 2024 presidential ambitions, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is staking out his extreme right territory and once again trying to make waves. He's got half a dozen senators signed onto a proposed constitutional amendment to prevent a change in the size of the Supreme Court. Yes, he only has five other senators, and yes a constitutional amendment requires support of two-thirds of each chamber of Congress and three-quarters of the individual states. He has a second proposal that would be less stringent, requiring a supermajority in the Senate to consider making changes in the size of the courts. «Make no mistake, if Democrats win the election, they will end the filibuster and pack the Supreme Court, expanding the number of justices to advance their radical political agenda, entrenching their power for generations, and destroying the foundations of our democratic system,» he said as his party is about to ram a radically conservative, unqualified ideologue onto the Supreme Court where she'd potentially be positioned to help Donald Trump cling to office by subverting the will of the people. Cruz added that «We must take action before Election Day to safeguard the Supreme Court and the constitutional liberties that hang in the balance.» That's not likely to happen, since McConnell wants to do one thing above all—get Barrett on the court—and then leave town for the remainder of the campaign. It's about saving the country, and shutting up Ted Cruz. Donate now to help bring back the White House and Senate.

The race for Los Angeles district attorney will affect criminal justice around the country

The county of Los Angeles has a distinct legacy of setting precedent. Whether in the cultural sphere or in the political, the influence and impact of Los Angeles is undeniable. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office is the largest prosecutorial office in the United States. Unlike any other country in the world, the United States is the only nation that elects rather than appoints district attorneys, giving the public a unique opportunity to elect someone who truly understands the needs of the governed and aligns with our values. Admittedly, many of us do not understand the power of the district attorney (DA), but with voting already underway and Election Day nearing, we should be paying more attention to who will serve as the next chief prosecutor.

Pompeo reportedly ignored outraged employees to address group that supports 'ex-gay' therapy

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is consistently among the most Trump-like of the impeached president’s corrupt, trollish officials—and he continued to cement that status after reportedly ignoring internal protests from his own department employees in order to address a right-wing religious organization that supports so-called “ex-gay” therapy, the Miami Herald said. The report said that Pompeo’s speech to the Florida Family Policy Council, a group also affiliated with several other anti-LGBTQ organizations, was covered in red flags, including staffers finding links to conversation therapy—which is torture—on the group’s site, as well as anti-gay flyers at the location where the speech was to take place. So Mike—ever-conscious about his employees and his department’s alleged pro-LGBTQ efforts—cancelled the speech, right? Nah. He not only continued on with it, he promoted it. It's the FINAL TWO WEEKS, and we need to put everything on the line. Sign up with 2020 Victory to make phone calls to battleground state voters for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and a Democratic Senate.

McConnell just took ownership of any COVID-19 relief bill failure

It's been 157 days since the House passed the $3 trillion HEROES Act, and 19 days since the House passed their compromise $2.2 trillion bill, both of which Sen. Mitch McConnell has refused to take up. It is 14 days until the election, and McConnell just told the White House to stop negotiating for a deal. There's been a concerted effort by the Washington, D.C. press, with an assist from some Democratic bros, to pin the lack of a deal on Pelosi. If she'd just taken the poisoned $1.8 trillion the White House had on offer, they say, this would have been done. That's totally ignoring the malevolent force that is McConnell, who has been refusing any substantive aid since March. For eight months. Now he's owning that fact. There are really good reasons for Democrats to have the Senate, like saving the nation from this pandemic. Donate now to help end Republican rule.

Suckers. That's clearly how major GOP donors feel after realizing that Trump's campaign is basically dead broke, he's dragging down the entire party, and he's even put Democrats in position to potentially take back the Senate.  “The Senate majority is the most important objective right now,” said Dan Eberhart, who has given over $190,000 to Trump’s reelection effort, according to the AP. “It’s the bulwark against so much bad policy that the Democrats want to do if they sweep the elections.” Let’s give Senate Republicans the boot!

Gen Z hit hard by pandemic, facing higher than average unemployment rates nationwide

The novel coronavirus has disrupted the lives of millions across the world and continues to do so. Amid the pandemic, people have lost not only their loved ones but their jobs and other aspects of security. Unemployment rates are among the highest they have ever been nationwide with about 26 million Americans having filed for unemployment since the start of the pandemic. As these numbers increase daily, a new analysis has found that younger workers are being affected at disproportionate rates. According to the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), young workers falling under the category of Gen Z—those ages 16 to 24—are most likely to be unemployed or underemployed due to the pandemic. These younger workers have taken a big hit that researchers predict will last far beyond the end of the pandemic. Studies have shown that this age group not only predominantly works in industries severely impacted by the coronavirus, but in fields that do not necessarily offer work from home options, including retail and hospitality.
