Democrats Aren’t Feeding the Impeachment Trolls

Náhled

Democrats Aren’t Feeding the Impeachment Trolls (Bloomberg Opinion) -- As the House Judiciary Committee continues to consider the articles of impeachment, many close observers are saying that Democrats are all too content to sit on the sidelines while Republicans slam the proceedings as a sham. That’s not entirely true, of course. When Republicans argued that Congress should always defer to the courts when presidents defy House subpoenas, California’s Zoe Lofgren gave an extremely strong defense of the rights of Congress, while also noting that President Donald Trump’s refusal to cooperate with the investigation was made without raising any particular privilege. In other words, Trump and the House aren’t arguing over a particular point of constitutional interpretation; Trump is simply asserting that he doesn’t have to cooperate if he doesn’t want to. That’s something, as Lofgren argued, that’s up to Congress to remedy. But in several cases, Democrats are letting thing go. Journalist Marcy Wheeler, who knows this material as well as anyone, is among those frustrated. She recently tweeted, “Dems are really acting negligent here. There’s so much to respond to this one.”Is she right? Are Democrats being negligent or simply getting rolled? Or have they made a strategic choice?There is some upside to allowing Republicans to rant on and on — especially the ones who prefer to shout. At a certain point, the objections begin to sound like white noise, or the mumbly adults in Charlie Brown’s world. If Democrats were to challenge them, it would elevate the Republican points and bait the news media into presenting bland reports about “both sides” of the debate — a debate that they would rather not have. Instead, Democrats are typically using their time to make their case for impeaching Trump. That’s not a bad strategy given the alternative. The media loves to do political analysis — how the impeachment is playing, what the electoral implications are — rather than just saying what happened.(2) And especially when the likely outcome in the Senate is an acquittal, the House procedures are likely to produce stories about the futility of the Democrats’ actions, rather than about what Democrats see as the extent of Trump’s malfeasance and the importance of impeachment. At the same time, Republicans appear to be mainly concerned not with convincing anyone, but in producing talking points for Republican-aligned media. That’s why they don’t mind repeating entirely discredited assertions, such as the claim that former Vice President Joe Biden was attempting to stop an investigation into his son’s company by getting a Ukrainian prosecutor fired when in fact Biden was — as the witnesses all said — trying to get Ukraine to replace a corrupt prosecutor who wasn’t investigating that company with one who would fight corruption. What this means is that even when Democrats do counter Republican points, it won’t change anything.Granted, it is very frustrating to those who are watching along at home and seeing opportunities for their side to score debating points. For better or worse, that’s not how anyone keeps score of these kinds of events.(1) Not that I'm complaining; that's a lot of what I do here at Opinion.

McDonald’s Wins High-Stakes Labor Battle With Help From White House

Náhled

McDonald’s Wins High-Stakes Labor Battle With Help From White House (Bloomberg) -- In a television commercial that’s become part of the lore surrounding Donald Trump’s affinity for McDonald’s Corp., he embraced a purple, lumpy denizen of the fast-food chain’s “McDonaldland” and said, “Together, Grimace, we could own this town.”He was talking about New York, not Washington. Yet on Thursday, some 17 years after he appeared in that spot for the “Big ’N’ Tasty” sandwich, President Trump’s appointees delivered a high-stakes political victory for McDonald’s in one of the most important labor disputes in decades.The national board that referees union-organizing drives effectively absolved the company of liability for alleged labor-law violations in some of its franchisees’ restaurants, easing a major threat to the fast-food giant’s business structure. Trump’s appointees overrode an agency judge and rebuffed ethical concerns raised by labor advocates to approve a group of settlements in the matter on a 2-1 decision. The deal resolves allegations of wrongdoing without holding the corporation legally liable as “joint employer” with its franchisees.The victory, which eluded McDonald’s during Obama’s presidency, could help the fast-food giant close a bruising chapter in its history that imperiled its valuable brand as well as the franchise structure it’s built on.  In an emailed statement, McDonald's Corp. said it was “pleased” that the case had been concluded, and that the decision “allows our franchisees and their employees to move forward, and resolves all matters without any admission of wrongdoing.”Separately, top administration officials, including acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, are pushing to enact new, more lenient rules that would help insulate McDonald’s and similar chains from liability for the conduct of their franchisees. “President Trump has made deregulation a priority across the administration, which has helped unleash unprecedented economic and job growth,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said.There’s no sign that Trump has personally intervened in the NLRB’s McDonald’s case. Regardless, the case stands apart—both in terms of its history and its potential repercussions.During a messy, multi-year saga, the company became a focal point in the “Fight for $15” movement to increase pay and unionize fast-food workers, among others. As protests engulfed McDonald’s restaurants, a corporate team responded by organizing a central effort to help franchisees push back against the union, according to evidence submitted in the case. Workers eventually complained to the NLRB, alleging that the tactics franchisees used amounted to illegal retaliation for engaging in federally protected union activities. In 2014, the board’s general counsel found enough merit in the workers’ claims to issue formal complaints against a group of franchisees, complaints that also accused McDonald’s of acting as a “joint employer” with them. McDonald’s and the franchisees have denied any illegal retaliation or other unfair practices. McDonald’s has called the allegations baseless and argued that it can’t be legally held responsible for decisions of its franchisees, who run more than 90% of McDonald’s restaurants and set their own wages and hiring practices. Franchisees denied the allegations as well.  In the board’s ruling Thursday, two Trump appointees approved proposed settlements that provide back pay to McDonald's workers but do not hold McDonald's Corp. liable as a "joint employer." In their decision, the members wrote that the deal would "remedy every violation alleged" in the government’s complaints against McDonald's."Moreover, we conclude that further litigation would impose a substantial burden on the parties, without a significant probability of prevailing on the complaint’s joint-employer allegation," board members Marvin Kaplan and William Emanuel said in the ruling.Union advocates had lodged a formal petition with the board arguing that Emanuel needed to recuse from the case because he worked at a law firm that McDonald’s hired to counter the Fight for $15 organizing and protest efforts.Emanuel "has considered the motion and has determined, in consultation with the Board’s Designated Agency Ethics Official, not to recuse himself," according to the ruling, which noted that his firm had not been representing McDonald’s or franchisees in the NLRB case itself.

Česká politická scéna jako na dlani

Žaloba na ČT. Tajnosti kolem peněz na Moravce. Dost! Advokát Koudelka do toho řízl

15.12.2019, 12:51

Právník Zdeněk Koudelka (Trikolóra) se opět pustil do České televize. Kvůli pořadu Václava Moravce. Rozhodl se celou věc dohnat až k soudu. Spustil kanonádu, ve které veřejnoprávní televizi vyčetl, že káže vodu, ale sama pije víno.

Hahaha! Klaus ml. neuspěl. Výsměch a škodolibá radost. Polčák, Hřebejk, novináři, aktivista, je toho hodně

Ve Strakonicích v sobotu proběhly ostře sledované obecní volby, které suverénně vyhrálo hnutí Strakonická Veřejnost. Získalo 64,72 procenta hlasů, což znamená 17 mandátů v 21členném zastupitelstvu. V opakovaných volbách usilovalo o podporu deset subjektů. Poprvé kandidovalo i hnutí Trikolóra Václava Klause mladšího, který nedávno sdílel příspěvek, že ve Strakonicích mají mít necelých 16 procent, nakonec jej však podpořilo 3,32 procenta voličů, což dalo prostor škodolibé radosti.

Vy si klidně volte a my z náměstí rozhodneme, kdo povládne? Ne! Foldyna naložil chvilkařům, i za bordel v Praze

15.12.2019, 10:37

ROZHOVOR „Protože demonstranti nemají respekt k výsledku demokratických a svobodných voleb, není překvapivé, že nemají respekt ani k cizímu majetku,“ tvrdí o projevech demonstrantů a pomalované ceduli ČSSD poslanec a sociální demokrat Jaroslav Foldyna. K popsaným chodníkům s ironií podotýká, že když křídou malují po chodnících i malé děti, proč by to nemohli dělat demonstranti? Podle Foldyny je to lepší než zapalovat auta nebo rozbíjet výlohy. Opoziční TOP 09, Piráti, ODS, STAN a KDU-ČSL je hezká skupinka – taková moderní, protinárodní, eurohujerská Národní fronta. Tu voliči jistě ocení.

Zeman, Kundera, Macron a žluté vesty. O nich jsme hlavně hovořili s končícím velvyslancem ve Francii, který vrátil slavnému spisovateli české občanství

15.12.2019, 13:24

EXKLUZIVNĚ Očividně jsem se znelíbil prezidentovi. Nicméně, opravdu nevím proč. Často se nestává, aby byl velvyslanec bezdůvodně odvolán před ukončením čtvrtého roku ve funkci. To sdělil politolog a český velvyslanec ve Francii Petr Drulák. Poslední akcí, jíž se na ambasádě zúčastnil, byla připomínka 100. výročí založení Sdružení československých dobrovolníků ve Francii. A pak poskytl rozhovor ParlamentnímListům.cz.

Budou se vrahem inspirovat další? Už se stalo. Soukup o dohře masakru v Ostravě

15.12.2019, 10:05

Generální ředitel TV Barrandov Jaromír Soukup se v jednom ze svých pořadů, Jasně a stručně, vrátil k tragické události ve Fakultní nemocnici v Ostravě, kde útočník zastřelil sedm lidí. Jde o druhou nejhorší podobnou událost v dějinách Česka. V těchto dnech vyplouvají informace o tom, co tomuto hrůznému činu předcházelo, a jim se moderátor věnuje. Poukazuje i na to, že taková událost se může stát „inspirací“ pro další psychicky narušené lidi.

Dinosaurus NATO se ztěžka vleče

Finian Cunnigham 12.12.2019, 00:10

Roztržky a nevraživost na summitu NATO, který proběhl tento týden, nebylo možné skrýt, dokonce ani pomocí strojených výzev k „jednotě“. Američany vedená vojenská aliance je dinosaurus, který rozhodně překročil dobu svého zániku.

Americký úřad FDA prohlásil: „Ať jedí bavlník“

William Engdahl 11.12.2019, 00:20

Vládní regulátoři v USA schválili geneticky modifikovanou odrůdu bavlníku jako „potenciální řešení pro hlad lidí“. Radikální řešení spočívá v tom, že konzumace GM semen bavlníku, vyvinutých na Texaské univerzitě A&M, avšak bez nezávislých dlouhodobých testů, bude kromě zvířat povolena i lidem. To vyvolává nové, vážné obavy ohledně bezpečnosti našeho potravinového řetězce. V důsledku toho může být světový potravinový řetězec brzy kontaminován geneticky modifikovanými semeny bavlníku, přičemž úřady jednoduše ignorují veškerá rizika.

Požáry v Amazonii způsobují rychlejší tání ledovců v Andách

Matthew Harris 10.12.2019, 00:10

Pokud jste v několika posledních měsících zapnuli televizi nebo si přečetli zprávy, pravděpodobně jste slyšeli o rozsáhlých požárech, které během letošního roku napáchaly velké škody v amazonském pralese. Požáry se v deštném pralese vyskytují každý rok, ale v posledních 11 měsících došlo k nárůstu počtu požárů o více než 70% ve srovnání s rokem 2018, což svědčí o výrazném urychlení odstraňování vegetace ze strany místních těžařských a zemědělských společností.
