The consequences of Trump's repeal of the Clean Power Plan
\\you might have heard the EPA had Scott Pruett is repealing the clean power plan I'll be signing a proposed rule to withdrawal the so called clean power plan of the past administration but what actually is the clean power plan it was an Obama administration plant significantly cut carbon pollution by 2030 the very pollution that's harming our plan each state has its own achievable target and could decide the best way to get it was kind of a big deal each year the plant could have prevented up to 90000 asthma attacks 1700 heart attacks 300000 missed school and work days and 3600 premature deaths that's because for the last 40 years electricity generation because then the largest source of greenhouse gas pollution in the U. dramatically reducing those emissions could have saved Americans estimated $38000000000 the clean power plan was widely seen as the most effective way for the US to lower its greenhouse gas and but the top administration has made it clear that moving off fossil fuels isn't a priority in fact it's pretty much the opposite today I am pleased to announce the official approval for the keystone XL pipeline this executive order starts the process of opening offshore areas we're lifting the ban on federal leasing for coal production along with 22 other environmental rollbacks the clean power plan was crucial for the United States to reach its emissions reduction commitment under the Paris accord the worldwide agreement to combat claim but without any help from the US it is time to exit the powers who would it's unlikely mankind will be able to avoid the most catastrophic effects of climate change //

What is a health care block grant?
\\you may have heard a lot of people talking about block granting healthcare recently block granting Medicaid block grant it to the state's large block grants working on a block grant issue when Republicans talk about repealing the affordable Care Act they usually mean replacing it with block grants but before we get to that let's take a step back what actually are block grants basically there ... fixed amount of money that the federal government grants to state first there are block grants for education transportation housing you name it and they work differently across applications and industries sometimes they provide additional funding that states what an otherwise how like money to combat you'll be a crisis sometimes their policy reforms packaged allies grants this is where healthcare comes in which that GOP has been trying to block grant for a long time I am we're proposing will substantially reduce the need for for hundreds the 5 pages of law you get rid of this you say the governor's ... you can in fact solve this problem time for action is now our approach is to end the onerous one size fits all approach to Medicaid financing lately that strategy has taken the form of obamacare replacement bells and that means costs and regulations are largely left to the states to work out feel like a bomb the care you want repaired you can if you replace it you can only it's not there are basic issues with block granting health care that are hard to ignore proponents argue that block granting would give states the flexibility to make the healthcare system work uniquely for that but clock writing proposals generally reduce federal funding from the get go it's to make matters worse brand proposals that's far give each state SR amount of money so when healthcare costs inevitably continue to rise the federal government won't give more money to the states to make up the difference so remember wind senator Gramm sad if you lack a bomb I care and you want repaired you can win these grants don't keep up with health care needs then states can either a rework struck budgets to try and keep obamacare eyes is for the the more likely scenario cut healthcare program costs meeting some people will lose coverage which brings us to another GOP argument for a block grant to healthcare cash strapped states will have an incentive to run a tight ship after all states will only have access to blabber much money they add to the pot and states have to balance their budgets by law feel have a race for a fish it addition city rather than just a race to write bigger and bigger checks but see it not all states are treated fairly for example in a recent time to known as the grand Cassidy bell the distribution of funds would disadvantage states that under the affordable Care Act expanded Medicaid and in world where people in the marketplace my goal is to make sure that you live in South Carolina you get the same amount of money from the federal government as you would if you live in California but because the bill in the short term use is funding for the Medicaid expansion Tara paper block grants states like California and New York and Massachusetts would struggle even more than states who didn't expand Medicaid it assumes that the cost of healthcare across the country should be the same everywhere so sure block granting could seem like a good idea I mean who doesn't want more flexibility and incentives to run more efficient programs but in reality the money just doesn't add up so after more than 3 decades of debating this strategy isn't it time we give it a rest //

I think it's something that sent you know shockwaves through this community in this state people's lives are at stake it would certainly be a chill wind blowing throughout this nation because the history is when one goes then either start falling and so BMW will fight to the intent to be able to continue to provide abortion services and I know that every other clinic in every other state will do that to //

Louisiana's Long Awaited Criminal Justice Reform
\\did you know that the state of Louisiana currently incarcerate a higher percentage of its population than any country in the world well finally finally something is being done about this the governor signed not one not 2 but 10 bills that completely overhauled Louisiana's criminal justice we need all that big its mark on crime and that's what they tried to do states currently incarcerated 2.2000000 people up 500 percent increase over the last 40 years and Louisiana has had the highest number incarcerated individuals for the past 12 years I disproportionate number of them nearly 2 thirds are black and then there's the looming threat of recidivism one in 3 incarcerated Louisianans will end up back behind bars in their lifetime they serve a life sentence 6 months these bills are aiming to change that known formally as the justice reinvestment package they cover a huge range of issues from reducing sentences and extending parole eligibility to streamlining the re entry process and creating a debt forgiveness program that means fewer formerly incarcerated people will be punished for not being able to pay back that's such as child support or legal fees which is huge because the recidivism in the criminal justice 70 percent of the money saved from these reforms an estimated $284000000 will go directly to programs proven to reduce recidivism a port crane think that this bill was a welcome change from the gridlock that so many states including Louisiana are experiencing today it passed both the house and the Senate unanimously the state predicts that their prison population will drop by 10 percent over the next 10 years and because Louisiana's prison population is disproportionately people of color these reforms will disproportionately benefit those communities for a state where one out of every 86 adults is incarcerated that's a huge number of lives affected those lives are the reason this historic package was able to succeed it was a grassroots efforts from Louisiana citizens descended upon the capital to share personal stories when I left my silent when he was a teenager but trumped up charges right it wasn't to help him ice years later when he was murdered did not help unless this is about what is right and just and fair file for that remember the women that I left behind and they did not deserve some of the punishment that they receive there were hundreds more like these along with thousands of letters sent to pop in the state with the highest number of disenfranchised citizens people still found a way to make their voices heard //

America's Food Waste Problem
\\Americans waste over 130000000000 pounds of food every year most of that food ends up in landfills where it decomposes producing greenhouse gases meanwhile one in 8 Americans struggle with hunger basically food waste is a huge problem Americans don't consume 30 to 40 percent of food produced thanks in part to a lot of confusion about cell by labels and an obsession with perfect Proteus according to the department of agriculture food is the single largest component of municipal landfills in the United States a cost of all that organic waste from growing it to disposing of it is roughly $218000000000 per year so some states have come up with a variety of ways to tackle the problem 8 states offer incentives to producers and retailers that donate to food banks hoping that usable waste can help combat food insecurity some create an additional tax credit on top of an already existing federal credit so smaller operations that can't afford to make regular donations will now get more money to do just that others create protections so donors don't have to worry about lawsuits over food gone bad 2 more states Maryland and Virginia similar bills up for debate then there are the 5 states that are focusing on a mission restricting the amount of food the producers can dump in a landfill Maryland New Jersey and New York are considering similar proposals but these restrictions aren't all encompassing 4 of the 5 states restrict the amount of organic waste from the largest producers only in 3 states exempt producers that are too far from recycling or composting facilities finally there's California Oregon and Colorado who are using food ways to create biofuel that by a fuel is then used to power say city vehicles in San Diego clearly these policies could reduce our reliance on oil and as technology advances the conversion process becomes faster and faster making it more efficient and composting and while states try to hammer out so can't businesses have stepped in them grocery manufacturers and retailers are working together to adopt standardized date labels on packages and some companies are claiming the role of middle man collecting imperfect produce from farms and restaurants and selling it to consumers at a discount are you looking for some of that discounted food there're several apps for that there also apps to help donate to food pantries and others that even let you donate a meal when you enjoy one yourself for years large farms and retailers have been at odds with environmental groups fighting over policies like bands on plastic bags and regulation over fertilizer use but reducing food and efficiency that's something everyone can get behind mmhm mmhm //

The charter school battle just got worse in Florida.
\\as students packed up their backpacks and got ready for summer vacation Florida pass a controversial bill that intensified the fight between charter schools in traditional public schools so let's back up a second here yes charter schools are public schools but they're run by private institutes and therefore are not subject to the same kinds of regulations traditional public schools that's against the rules and you can't and because charter schools aren't as regulated their results have been all over the map sometimes they perform much better than traditional public schools sometimes a promise parents the world works yeah had a in fact in Florida charter schools have the worst track records in traditional public schools so what is bill me for education in the sense while the bill is huge 278 pages to be exact there's a lot in it including daily recess and expanding vouchers for students with disabilities which pretty much everyone can get behind but it's the bill's provisions about funding for charter schools that has caused an uproar districts have a certain budget millions of dollars across spend on school can this bill forces districts to share about money with charter this isn't an ego she it also sets aside $140000000 to build additional charter schools in low income areas so that they can directly compete with neighborhood schools house Republicans who crafted the bill said traditional public schools don't need the funds they are building $40000000 tossed halls up and down the state but opponents like the superintendent of Lee County say the money is essential for the public schools it is legislation that has a major impact on our public education system yet neither educators nor the public were ever given the opportunity for input the bill was written behind closed doors it wasn't even released to the public until 3 days before the end of it already extended session and since it's a budget bill the legislature couldn't debate or make amendments this is not a democracy chair accuracy I'm sorry I'm utterly in it only passed the Senate by one vote then Floridians started weighing calling a dangerous and a slush fund for charter schools some charter schools in Miami Dade County even offered students extra credit if they told the governor that they supported the and in the end governor Rick Scott chose decided I one of Florida's charter schools that will be receiving funding as a result of the bill look all the students use all the smiling faces and their lives will be better they'll have you ever seen live the dream what this controversial bill means for education in the sunshine state is yet to be but the fact is the bill is diverting money away additional public schools to a system that fails at a much higher rate still here it's over go home no //

For these LGBTQ activists, pride isn't about parades
\\there's a lot of celebrating going on these days is not a lot of things celebrate now our rights are being stripped away from a flight as the trends and I never really had right as assist gay white male privilege I feel a lot of people in that same category maybe thought the fight for gay rights LGBTQ rights was over after gay marriage and it can be farther from the truth pride has never appealed it was never a place for me as a trans person as a disabled person and as a black person arm didn't celebrate images that that reflected what I look like we're building all of the art here we have some banners some sign is no justice no pride belief is that the backbone of the LGBT community is marginalized LGBT folks is trans woman of color for too long the movement that we see movement has has kind of had this trickle down approach to to rights that like once the most wealthy LGBT folks get equality then they'll help the rest of us and they got their gay marriage rights right and they kind of said all along like once we get gay marriage will fight for everyone and it's been a couple years now we don't really see that happening and so we're gonna demand that happens we have 3 different like a we will be doing a hard lock down in a hard rock down is where you and other people who you're taking action physically locked down using the equipment will be locking down chains as well using lock boxes or frustrated us going up there couple pride is almost going after institutional power in the city and trying to transfer that from those who have always had it to those I actually needed it really is catching on and resonating with I think what we see is like a long standing resentment of these organizations that put on these festivals with the primary goal of bringing in corporate money selling things to the LGBT community in this political climate we really feel like we can actually make our voices heard and get folks fired up about demanding something that's that's better much greens woman Holofernes I'm a trans woman first I am human first the choir translate a feeling came together after a response from the community to have a swing where folks for good remember that Pat was born out of resistance so indeed across the honor our ancestors on of those who have given their lives so that we can be here today it's the fun of it is not just some white gays skinnies this pedal normative recreation you know I love the Backstreet mania maybe perhaps them of that suit but let's not forget it bed trans woman of color have lost their lives as far in the streets have thought the police with their heels with bricks with bottles so that we come March today solicit not forget that didn't want to celebrate this year with sponsorship banners everywhere it it didn't feel right to me at this time of year no because they felt it was necessary for our community to mark nnova this is the most diverse national co chairs of any March on Washington the LGBT unity and I was intentional in one of those voices in leadership positions the political landscape that we live in right now he addressed it felt like you needed to he stripped down barebones grassroots harking back to the original pride as we March today I want to take a moment to remember transgender bisexual gay lesbian queer lives they cannot be with us here today there are issues that affect our trans community racial injustice immigration injustice these are all issues that affect our community and they don't get highlighted nnova fully on Sunday we inspire people to go home and you can use this mass mobilization and educate them to to take action themselves in their own local communities I truly believe that pride should be a protest even to this day there's there's a lot of protest in our community like Obama full power there would still be alive protests in our community this is a way to activate us to mobilize us to personally for me to dissipate democracy help these issues get out pride is not supposed to be a celebration is the most immediate of remembrance of the things that we have over crown and the fight that we still have problems unapologetically in our church if we really wanted to talk about what it means to support LGBTQ people that would mean starting with the folks whose needs are the greatest it would mean yelled really supporting the folks who need support not just doing the easy thing so that you can be celebrated as an ally //

WTF is going on with North Carolina's voting map?
\\North Carolina has been in the headlines quite a bit recently north Carolina's congressional redistricting cases in the spotlight a major decision by the nation's highest court the Supreme Court ruled that north Carolina's districts were unlawfully drawn to delete the influence of black folks delay only towards justice and governor Roy Cooper has asked lawmakers to redraw the map but what a lot of people don't know is that a bill was introduced back in February that would create an independent commission to do just that in the bill is going be 200 create standards for redistricting that would eliminate partisan influenced in part by creating a commission that excludes anyone who hold public office and their relatives the bill specifies the district's ideal shape and population size but most importantly it explicitly forbade manipulating district lines to secure party control right now North Carolina voters are free even along party lines but Republicans have a super majority in both the state house and Senate this bill would help North Carolina better reflected its primary sponsors are Republicans and it's received bipartisan support we have to serve the people of North Carolina and we must make sure that they have full confidence ... in the integrity and fairness of our elections it is so rewarding for me to be part of a bipartisan group of North Carolina legislators who won the part crafting a bipartisan solution and North Carolina citizens agree 59 percent of voters are in favor of nonpartisan reduce only 15 percent are opposed despite the support the bill has yet to make it out of committee and that might not be an accident the committee is chaired by representative David Lewis who also chaired the 2011 committee the truth very maps that the courts just ruled on the bill has been gathering dust for 3 months prompting north Carolinians to hold the people's hearing on each be too hot at stake is the very heart of our democracy the rights of citizens to have their voices heard through the ballot box we have the right to vote we have the right to be counted in the election in Canada equally it's time for this to stop listened to your constituents and still crickets from the committee the fact is that needs to be redrawn when how and by whom is yet to be to WNED //

Access to stem cell therapy is about to get safer
\\you'll never guess which state is on track to become the first to recognize stem cell therapy as a treatment for chronic illnesses I'll give you a hint it's former governor and our former president once banned federal funding for research on embryonic stem cells you guessed it the Lone Star state in the last week of its legislative session Texas lawmakers approved a bill that legalizes investigational stem cell treatments which basically means treatment but have been value added by and is regional review board have not yet been approved by the FDA keep in mind though this isn't about embryonic stem cells the cells will come from bank umbilical cords in the patients themselves will be allowed to pursue the treatment of a last resort so people who suffer from debilitating chronic illnesses like Parkinson's ALS and multiple sclerosis could see relief for Texas representative drew Springer this it's a pretty god every time I go to bed but every time I close my eyes but what day my wife and not for my sake the person I have the chance to have that opportunity to get to be able to walk the bill almost missed the deadline until he came to the podium after his plea it unanimously passed the house and failed through the Senate it now awaits governor Greg Abbott's signature and he's already tweeted his support for it but not everyone is on board 2 different stem cell research organizations have vocalize their opposition arguing that the lack of quote rigorous evidence of safety and efficacy will put vulnerable patients at risk but the reality is patients have already been taking this risk without the state's explicit authorization there are hundreds of clinics across the country that have been operating under regulatory loopholes at least 71 in Texas alone without regulation these clinics are completely unchecked patients who seek help there have felt the consequences they've been minded developed tumors and even diet after seeking unregulated stem cell treatment but with this new bill if something goes wrong patients have the right to see so there you go Texas creating accountability for stem cell clinics for the first time in the U. S. an unprecedented act predicted state //

What's happening with pot legalization?
\\you know I was having a great year hot and the medical cannabis will not be legalized in Utah a big yellow on legal weed now but really you might remember voters in 8 states and the dish to Columbia legalize recreational marijuana between 2012 and 2016 well this year for the very first time I stayed almost pass a recreational pot bill through this legislature and this is not a novel and I think of public opinion is changing quickly back when less than 20 percent of Americans supported legalization and now it's up to 57 percent this isn't just a story of stoners getting their way marijuana is a lucrative business in Colorado for example pot stills totaled 1.$3000000000 in 2016 alone that made $200000000 in tax revenue most of which went to the public school system and in DC's first here legalization marijuana related arrest went down 85 percent saving the city more than just money so of course other states want to get in on that which brings us to Vermont Vermont had a bill that would legalize small amounts of pot for adult recreational it passed the house and the Senate if governor Phil Scott had signed the legislation Vermont would've gone down in history as the first state to legalize marijuana through the legislative process instead of at the ballot box however the governor vetoed it but not without recognizing a shift in public perception I'm not philosophically opposed to ending the prohibition on marijuana the matter isn't over yet if the legislature addresses some of his concerns during the summer session the green mountain state will get quite a bit green and Vermont is not alone as of may 19 states are considering legalization bill somersaulting committee others are making their way to a vote granted for have failed this year but the fact that these bills are even being introduced is a far cry from when Bill Clinton didn't inhale so really this is just the beginning //

What is populism and how is it shaping global politics?
\\listen can be very hard to define because it varies from national context national context but one thing that parties Moomins politicians who are described as populist tend to share is this insistence that traditional weeds in institutions are ignoring the demands and the needs of the masses so there is a very us versus them quality of populism there really is haunted ways of other parties in institutions failures rather than the cause of that billionaire in this country with last week populist the enemy tends to be a sort of financial or business type of of the when Mexico sends its people they're not sending their best in a lot of other countries the enemy immigrants who look different than us people think different than us the social and economic problems that Europe is currently grappling with started decades ago and have sort of gradually increasing over time real he had was this kind of we shared a hug economic and social problems that I think bush a lot of orders race radical change talk to me Frank selections provide us with a great prism through which to understand the meaning and the rise of pop the National Front has turned herself into an incredibly powerful and I think interesting figure it down it is I will go even the music dissect will do it got we just 3 luck all did that Jew but should McCrone win I'm not managed to convince voters after was that his program can actually solve their problems we should expect her to come back the next presidential election Stromberg NCHA many along with France remains the main player the main powers in Europe so what happens there really hasn't act outside of orders the with his installed stuff of budgets and populist right the alternative for Germany was months ago you were quite well at the national election now it seems to have declined somewhat partially due to infighting and historically of course because of Germany's past there's been a real barrier to the wife of more right populism in Germany so the fact that we're even seems exhibit is really a reflection of how we the structural shifts in European political life go that their lands the populace there was pretty come out on top Wilder's did not wish it I did manage to vote so I would take up election results as a sign of absolute defeat but a sign that we have to continue to worry about underlying trends that bed these parties it's much more dangerous in a way places like Poland and Hungary because institute shows at the norms of democracy are much weaker and therefore much easier to you maneuver around or even overthrowing danger when populism right is that it ships populism 2 authoritarianism we've seen that happen in Hungary seen that happen in Turkey it also of course happened in that as well and people are very worried about something like that happening in a place like bullets let it be about populism as a consequence of rising dissatisfaction and the inability of traditional of weeds and institutions deal with it potentially be a silver lining I tend to raise issues that a lot of people are concerned about they tend to focus on problems that are not being addressed traditional hope needs an instant ships can walk at say 8 we'd better figure out better ways of and with these issues and concerns populist armed oddly enough find it back service if not then we can expect to get the populace to continue to to I don't support and probably the problem is not to be absolutely addressed politics is about getting your message it lists tend to be very good at this because tend to present routines all it off and problematic you contemporary problems //

\\for trump became president he inherited 107 federal judicial vacancies essentially twice the number of bombing that's in large part because in 2015 the Republican majority Senate began refusing to Anne of Obama's appoint remember Merrick garland well he's only one of 52 judicial nominees during Obama's presidency you never received a vote all told there are 874 federal judges in the United including the District Court the court of appeals and the Supreme Court trump's nominations only need simple majority in for these lifetime and with these vacancies alone trump Kaname about 14 all federal judges take into account the number of expected retire trump's picks could make up to 0.5 the appellate court well I'm going to appoint conservative judges I'm going to appoint people that have great reputations that are great with the legal profession like trump hasn't provided much can tell Angela point but we do know a little he promised on the campaign only pro life conservatives to the court which was instrumental in securing the evangelical vote and he's pledged that his judges will quote all be picked by the federalist society ... uncial group of conservative lawyers trump is looking to appoint judges who are young and have lost 6 chairing the president's influence on the judicial branch a decade and that influence greatest a fat circuit court level while the Supreme Court hears only about the 5 case a year a court of appeals decides to thousands which means that often the lower courts have the final say on the rule of law creating a far reaching sphere of influence over the daily lives of for example both of 2 travel ban deemed on first by an appellate court judge I district and just last month the District Court for the fifth circuit ruled that Texas is gerrymandering of their congressional districts unconstitutional because it targeted minority voters the judges trumpet nominates are likely going to preside over content debates like gun control voting rights civil liberties abortion to name a few trump's appointments will likely establish a new conservative press across the United States mmhm //

Watch Nunes pretend he wasn’t in cahoots with the White House
\\yeah will be going to the White House this afternoon to share what I know with the president and his team ministration I think is aware of this so I make sure that I go there and tell them what I know they need to see it they don't have it they need to see today I briefed the president on the concerns that I had the president needs to know that this increase intelligence reports are out there and I have a duty to to tell him that this is information that was brought to me but I thought the president needed to know and I thought it was important for the president to know this that's why I've reached the speaker this morning and I came down here ... as soon as I could I think you'd like to see these reports and I'd be hopefully ... hopefully when we get on hopefully they'll get them to the White House also I would be concerned if I was the president and that's why I wanted him to know I felt like I had a duty and obligation the talon because as you know is taking a lot of heat in the news media I'm not just doesn't so I don't know why he would travel a brief the speaker that come down here to brief us on something that that we were briefed him on it doesn't really seem to make a ton of sense it doesn't really past that that's not //

Trump and Russia: The controversy explained
\\we get exposed to more than 2000 additional emails national security adviser Michael Flynn forced to resign once again questions are being asked about 1 of Donald trump's key appointments once again it's all to do with Russia we know based on the findings of US intelligence agencies that Russia interfered in the 2016 election and they did so in order to help trump what we don't know is if and to what extent president trump and his associates what did the president know and when did he Z. for Russia having a friend the White House no pop today no pad is worth way more than millions of dollars they're losing U. S. sank Russia would like to have the return it's great power staff what Russia has been trying to do for me through a series of acts of into is undermined the web under mine what it stands for undermine the institutions that it has spent 70 years creating to call into question the value sad that we work so hard to protect and promote so what do we actually know there are several people directly connected to trump who also have suspicious types of crime let's start with Rogers to stone is a longtime friend of trump and was an adviser to his campaign early on in June Russian hacker guccifer 2.oh to a confidential DNC documents part of what intelligence agencies refer to when they say that Russia interfered in the U. S. select stone was in contact with the Twitter account after the hacking a quote unquote innocuous conversation for god's then stone began threatening Clinton's campaign on Twitter notice the hashtag days later wikileaks has posted thousands of emails hacked from Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman and tens of thousands of them throughout the point of it was to get these documents into the public realm and wikileaks was a perfect tool but it's clear that they were instruments of Russian intelligence and stone himself says he's connected I actually have gone out communicated with the sound the FBI is investigating still then there is Palm Anna Ford trucks campaign manager over the summer during his tenure on the campaign metaphor came under fire for his lobbying work for pro Russian entities in Ukraine a pro Russia political party set aside millions in undisclosed cash payments designated for Paul man of fort the controversy forced man forced to resign months later the New York Times reported that the FBI had intercepted because between manna for the Kremlin and then new revelation that man up for work for Russian billionaire pull like dura pasta alleged to have secretly promoted Russian president Vladimir Putin's agenda with mana Ford making millions the FBI is investigating map for and that gets us to Michael Flynn you may remember transformer national security adviser during the campaign when was trumps top military aid despite a 2015 speaking engagement in Moscow where state owned media company Russia today what he'd planned celebrate their tenth anniversary it's one thing to be invited to the celebrate Tory dinner of the tenth anniversary of our tea ailing scurrilous propaganda arm of the Russian government but for him to think of it as a retired eminence in the world of American intelligence he could go and participate in a party for our team is really is is really beyond belief fast forward to the month before trump took office the same day that then president Obama announces new sanctions against Russia for meddling in our election Linda spoke to Russian ambassador Sergei Keithley act about lifting US sanctions if the administration lifted the sanctions that Obama layered on at the end of 2016 we would essentially be sending a signal to prove that we don't mind that Russia actively interfered in our election we would essentially be giving him carte Blanche to do that again in the future as early as 2020 first when denied the allegations and vice president pens stood by him was strictly coincidental then Flynn conceding that he inadvertently briefed the vice president elect and others with incomplete information officials say Michael Flynn lied to the FBI is still under investigation given the fate of our relationship ... and the fact that we knew about the DNC hack and there was evidence that Russians possible for that I would have personally advise anyone on the truck transition team not to meet with any Russian officials on February 13 plan resigned it's worth noting that Flynn isn't the only trump associate who privately met with key slack here the other ones that we know about then senator Jeff sessions a campaign surrogate entrance current Attorney General we'll get to those meetings and Carter page a foreign policy adviser to the campaign also under investigation JD Gordon the campaign's national security policy representative for the are and see and Jared Kushner trump son in law and senior adviser well these connections were being made behind the scenes trump was making things worse for himself in part by openly praising Putin on the campaign trail could zip confident guy smart guy did say he killed reports I said really I he says he didn't other people say you didn't who did he kill boot you did call me a genius city set on the future of the Republican Party he says good things about me I'm gonna say great things about him simultaneously a former British spy begin building a dossier on drums alleged ties to Russia which became public in January according to this dossier the Russians might have a lot of compromising material or is the Russians college compromise entre NTU NUS for the first time US investigators say that they have corroborated some of the communications of most of it remains unverified meanwhile trump isn't interested in investigating Russia's role in the you shouldn't be doing it he won't be doing it Russia will have much greater respect for our country when I'm leaving it then when other people have let it and the White House has been scrambling to deny the media reports of frequent communication between trump's campaign advisers and the Kremlin trunks chief of staff asked the FBI to squelch these reports potentially instruction of justice let's assume for a minute that the White House was trying to exert pressure on the FBI to shape the ongoing investigations in one way or another that is absolutely outrageous and not at all in line with how our government functions and is inappropriate so what's being done about all of this US agencies are conducting multiple investigations I can promise you we will follow the facts were ever they lead but remember the FBI is controlled by the department of justice and trump loyalists Jeff sessions commands the DOJ during his confirmation hearings sessions was asked how he would handle investigating ties between trump associates I have been called a surrogate at that time the 2 in that campaign and I didn't have to not have communications with the Russians and yet as The Washington Post revealed Russians met with keys we act twice my sense is that the Russians knew that sessions was acting as a surrogate and was a strong trump supporter and they probably also knew that he had a chance at and receiving a high ranking position that trump administration being appointed so their motivations are clear what's not clear to me is what the motivations were of the individuals that were serving on the trump transition to sessions has since recused himself from the DOJ investigation but that doesn't change the fact that the investigation will ultimately be overseen by somebody who works for trump then there are the investigations in the house and Senate intelligence both led by trump friendly Republican Senate Intel committee chair Richard Burr served as a national security adviser trump's campaign there's not a separation between me and I'll try and chairman of the house intelligence committee representative Devin Nunez helped lead Troms transition the only serious crimes we have our leaks that have come out ... of of our government to the press and others did I mention the White House ask Burr and newness to publicly denounce reports of communication trump's associates and the Kremlin yeah burn Nunez actually called reporters intelligence agencies and the investigatory committees in Congress are both supposed to be completely independent of the White House on a matter like this and investigating the White House on a matter like this but apparently they're all working for the White House and trying to make the bad press on this go away if we had a separate commission handling this I would sleep better at night because it would remove this from any influence of the White House and put it in the public eye demands for an independent review are gaining steam but that fight isn't shaping up to be members of Congress pursue investigations that could harm their own president only if they're under a lot of pressure and where it seems that they are going to be embarrassed if they do not but without an independent review we may never know the truth about trump's alleged ties to Russia all of us irrespective of political party should be deeply concerned when another country tries to directly interfere in our election and so let's know what happened and let's arm ourselves to protect ourselves next time they try people need to have confidence that ... these agencies and instruments of out of the state are not being used for partisan the purpose and for a White House to begin to a road that used //

Reza Aslan talks Muslim ban, America's future and staying hopeful
\\there's obviously been a lot of Islamophobia things ... deal since the election ... and we've been talking about ThinkProgress ... but in response to the order we've also seen click a backlash to the backlash which is very cool ... in so you've seen the dialogue kind of change a little about like Muslim Islam which is something that's really surprising to me that I've been to protest might seem like allies from every community there is I was wondering what your thoughts are on how to continue changing that dialogue in conflict to just have it continue what we're experiencing in a way that I have not experienced in the United States since I've been here is a real moment of clarity it's very clear who the enemy is what the end yeah as I think the left in the center have been revenge for decades now by these ideological conflict and when suddenly confronted with an existential threat to the Republic those 2 ideological arguments just melt away and what you have as I say is the absolute sense of clarity that there is an enemy that needs to be defeated and everything else needs to go to the back burner and so you're right we're seen groups that don't normally stand shoulder to shoulder with each other like Jews and Muslims for it for instance up fighting back against prejudice that affects all of us regardless of who we are and I think it's nice because like most Americans probably don't know any must loans most Americans maybe don't know a lot about Islam but you're still seen these groups come together anyway which is like really inspiring I know it's like been a really hard week ... for a lot of buzz this Leslie covering of them as as it's affecting our communities and our friends and our family like what do you find hope and right now our how are you taking care of yourself and everything that's going on what I do find hope in and and optimism and as precisely as I say the the enormity of the resistance against this narcissistic sociopath I think what I've noticed and what is important to always remember is that we are the majority you know this is a man who is sitting now at 36 percent approval ratings and I understand that he thinks Mathis fake but it's a real thing actually and I think what we are seeing is not just the most unpopular president in presidential history but the fact that the majority is not willing to sort of say that this is somebody else's problems you know part of what American democracy is about is a recognition that we're all in this together and so if the president can come after one of us you can come after any one of us and I think that the only way that we're going to be able to fight back is precisely to have this all for 11 for all mentality and I've seen it in a way that I've never seen it before and and I think that's definitely cause for optimism so how do you think it's changed ... the perception of America abroad like are standing in the world I think it should dearly damaged are standing in the world it's damaged it with our traditional allies I mean if you you look at the department in the U. K. right now essentially blocking any kind of state visit or official recognition of the president of the United States all I would not wish to use you individually come to speak in the world gallery I feel very strongly but our position to racism for one of issue but more importantly even some of the countries on the banned list I mean we have to recall that other 7 country some of them are not just allies they are very close allies I mean we are right now as you and I speak we have American military personnel on the ground indie rock fighting shoulder to shoulder with the Iraqi troops against a comin existential threat and we banned all Iraqis from coming to the United States I mean it's it's astonished and it's just it's it's starting to go back and be the case I think it's an indication of precisely what kind of a threat sits in the White House right now if knew how Blake wind take away for people who don't know a lot about Islam a lot about Muslims are the people that are even being affected by this family because what would you want to tell them if you don't read a book don't you know get information data knowledge as things are important but they don't really matter in the end all that really matters is relationships you're not gonna learn about Islam and then suddenly change your mind about Muslims that's not how it works on the only way to change your mind about Muslims is if you get no Muslim should the matter of getting to know a human being as a human being instead of as a symbol for some other I am idea whether that be a religion or ethnicity or a culture or what nationality or what have you just get to know someone as a person that's always been the way in which we shape our perceptions and it still remains to be that the case today war yeah hopefully hopefully we can all agree it's out to one another find a Muslim yeah spices offload that somehow you have to do //

Republicans are playing with the future of the entire health insurance industry
\\since the day it was signed into law obamacare has been on the defense and in a trump administration it could actually be left in tatters only the Republicans don't exactly have a healthcare plan to enact in its place their strategy repeal and away they want to repeal obamacare as quickly as possible while giving themselves a 2 to 3 year grace period to come up with an alternative plan in order to expedite the vote house Republicans are taking advantage of the budget process which eliminates the democrats'ability to filibuster so what does that mean for healthcare the GOP plans are scarce on information but there are 2 major issues with the Republican approach one fewer people will buy insurance obamacare created the individual mandate which requires everyone healthy and sick to buy insurance remember healthy people balance out costs and keep premiums what Republicans want to abolish the mandate that means healthy people are less likely to buy coverage and sick people would get stuck with higher and higher premiums to your insurance companies will offer plans insurance companies have adjusted their plans to obamacare but without a replacement they don't know how to prepare for the future this uncertainty would likely lead companies to pull out of obamacare state level marketplaces with fewer companies in the marketplace premiums will rise and so begins the spiral competition decreases premiums rise more healthy people leave and on and on and on into the whole system collapses repealing delay isn't final yet and there are some Republicans who don't want it to be but in the meantime at least 20000000 people's access to healthcare hangs in the balance //

What Does Catholic Healthcare Look Like?
\\today one in every 6 patients in the U. S. receives care at a Catholic hospital more and more hospitals across the country are affiliated with the Catholic health system but patients don't always know what that means so what does Catholic healthcare actually look like well most of the hospitals are nonprofit corporations so they benefit from public funding like state and federal family planning programs and Medicare and Medicaid and while hospitals are not directly controlled by the Catholic Church the doctors have to follow 72 rules written by the U. S. conference of Catholic bishops the ethical and religious directives for Catholic health care services the Bible instructs Christians to provide for those in need and the directives do as well they mandate care for the poor elderly and sick regardless of insurance but there are also certain procedures that are prohibited by the directives including abortion even when the mother's health is at risk assisted reproduction of any kind like egg and sperm donation in vitro fertilization or surrogacy contraception assuming you're not married and looking for natural family planning and sterilization operations like tubal ligation and the sector means ... and doctors can't honor advance directives that conflict with Catholic teaching so assisted suicide or declining life support is out of the question at a time when hospitals across the country are struggling to stay open the Catholic healthcare system is providing care for communities that might not otherwise have any by patients at those hospitals might not have access to the services they need mmhm is your nearest hospital Catholic institution if you live in Alaska Iowa Washington Wisconsin or South Dakota there's a good chance it as //

Criminalizing HIV Doesn't Do Anything To Help Anyone
\\33 states have laws that criminalize HIV these laws most of which date back to the height of the aids epidemic mean that a person with HIV can be sent to jail just for having any sexual contact without disclosing their status a recent study from the university of Minnesota found that most men who have sex with men don't even know if their state has such a law basically manner having Kondylis anal sex at the same rate whether there's a lot or not however those who believe that their states criminalized HIV actually engaged in higher rates of risky behavior and that's not all 2 earlier studies found that these laws actually dis incentivize people from getting tested just to avoid liability that makes it even harder to fight the epidemic it's not just that the laws don't work they're totally out data for example we now know that treatment significantly reduces the risk of transmitting the virus these laws don't have anything to do with promoting public health we're just convicting people living with HIV for having a sex life isn't that something in 2014 just 2 percent but ESPN SportsCenter coverage focused on women's sports that figure has remained flat since 1999 //

\\having stood there on the stage with president Obama street day it was surreal very very surreal and very very profound for me because I felt like I was finishing the work of my father that I too would be approach create stimulate some some wonderful change for this country that was going to save lives and that that would be my son's legacy uhhuh I Jessica Redfield galley ... was killed in the Aurora theater massacre it took me saying 6 people dead on the sidewalk eyes open mouths gaping fingers curled before I said to myself time for you to I'm the mother of a young man who shot and killed in Jacksonville Florida and I was never involved in gun violence until I lost my 6 year old son Dylan at sandy hook school our daughter Allison was murdered on 8/26/2015 on live television Obama's executive actions that he's taking are so welcomed I think we are all very proud that he did something when Congress wouldn't and he stood up when Congress want president Obama has taken this action because Congress fuses to get out of the grip of the NRA 50 years ago or even 30 years ago the NRA was not of organization it promoted safety sensible use of guns if our legislators are not willing to be accountable to the citizens of the United States and keeping them safe so that we're not in fear of being gunned down then what else can he do for the people in the GOP it's all about money and it's all about being indebted to the gun lobby and for the president and for us it's about blood I can't think of any reasonable person that would object to trying to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people unless we move forward and an axe safer gun laws in many different measures my story can easily become your story mmhm //

\\job for Superman he always seems but when do we mere mortals are you alright I think that most people actually have a first impulse help others Yale professor David right studies human cooperative behavior and analyzes why some people are willing to sacrifice themselves for the greater good he has a theory if you recognize this is a situation where people need to be helped you have an impulse to run towards but if you stop and think about it you might realize overweight there's danger involved in running towards I should probably run away to show how this theory works we invited 4 ThinkProgress reporters to play a simple game designed by professor you're gonna be asked to write a number either 0 to 10 each person is $10 to keep or put into a canal apply the money in the pot doubles in is divided evenly between so you always make more by keeping but you're scoring of your neighbor Karen Jack will immediately write down how much stock laurel and Ian will think about it first ready set go got some of the same time 123 damn you are all the about rating 10 and I I really wish that do it medially MHS it really ... but I wasn't sure if everybody else was gonna put the money in and you think about $5 war is yes not that and percentage wise classic over deliberation but what happens when the stakes are higher say life or death an amazing story 2 U. S. marines credited with preventing a massacre today on board a packed train the heavily armed gunmen tackled as he was loading is A. K. 47 so they act impossible I didn't really happen paper or at a time it was really a conscious we just kind of action there wasn't much going on the start line and now I don't doctoring and found that the last time people have to deliberate the more likely they are to cooperate with the group but that doesn't mean that using your intuition will make you more altruistic my theory is that you're sort of intuitive default response depends on your life experiences so if you're a kind of person who in your daily life it's typically advantageous to help others then you internalize helping as your default because that's what typically works well but if you come from a place where you know in general people don't trust each other it's not safe for you work in an organization that rewards being cut throat ... then you may wind up ... internalizing not helping us your default because that's the thing that typically works well so what they are on the train playing games with your coworkers or trying to save the world unless you think the better off everyone else //

\\one of my life back no more avoiding snacks are having duties that NDA wonderful loving husband and no sexual feelings whatsoever Shangri between us NMA suffer from lack of sexual desire and now a new pill developed by sprout pharmaceuticals could significantly improve their lot under the right most women are just sucking it up so to speak after years with no FDA approved solutions flibanserin popularly known as the female Viagra may soon provide women with treat in fact women's health groups have joined with the pharmaceutical company to create a new campaign called even the score the campaign is lobbying the FDA to approve flibanserin it's about time right even the score it's full of lies knowing me willful lies one such why the campaign strongly implies that the drugs so much Viagra but that's just not true men take a little blue pill when they want to have sex to increase blood flow to the penis women will have to take what bands are in daily and that works to convince the brain a desire sex also as one of the panelists advising the FDA told us the drug isn't nearly for anyone that my clinical practice of 15 years and general internal medicine I've never met a woman that fills the formal diagnostic criteria for this disorder and for the few premenopausal women who do qualify they would have to make some major life changes the only way I could take this product as a woman is I have to stop drinking I have to get off the my prescription ... contraceptives restraint they'll know anti fungal medicines for vaginal yeast in fact of anything like that stop that okay bye and I have to take it at night Ryan and over a 6 month period I my during some point of those 6 months experience a slightly heightened desire to have sex right in fact the few participants who saw improvements made such a small increase in their sexual activity that we had trouble characterizing and many participants experienced adverse effects that the expert panelists feared would only increase in the general population if you faint while you drive a car you may kill yourself or someone else these safety concerns in light of the very modest effectiveness benefit together don't present a favorable package the FDA rejected flibanserin twice in this third time around they requested additional study of how the drug interacts with alcohol company neural 25 people 23 men in just 2 women and later claimed that they didn't have the foresight to enroll more women sprout pharmaceuticals ... set off to do the right thing I believe but they then went astray when the FDA said we're still not convinced do you still haven't answered all the questions about safety then they started investing really pretty significant amounts of money into this marketing campaign after a full day of hearings the panel voted 18 to 6 to approve the drug though not without conditions and some serious reservations women suffering from Asia TD deserve better than that I think we all wish that it was a drug that was a better one there are serious safety concerns as somebody else's conditional this where the 7 drug in the class I think you'd be a very different discussion so will this trip really helped women is not perfect the drugs not perfect the FDA is not perfect we accept certain imperfections to move progress if the FDA approved flibanserin I will be convinced for ever that it came about as a result of of brilliant marketing campaigns and not as the result of good science and I but afraid women will suffer as a result //
