Mississippi Governor Signs 'Heartbeat Bill' Into Law

Náhled

Watch Video Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant signed a bill Thursday that bans abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected.The bill would prohibit elective abortions as early as six weeks into pregnancy. Critics have said most women don't even know they're pregnant at that time.  Other states  have passed similar bills before, but many were found unconstitutional. Lawmakers in Ohio, Tennessee and Georgia are working to pass similar bills right now. The nonprofit Center for Reproductive Rights has already said it's taking Mississippi to court.In a statement, an attorney for the center called the ban "one of the most restrictive abortion bans signed into law." She also said the state's lawmakers "are determined to rob Mississippians of the right to abortion, and they are doing it at the expense of women's health and taxpayer money. This ban — just like the 15 week ban the Governor signed a year ago — is cruel and clearly unconstitutional." Číst dále >>> Přeložit do cs

Trump Signs Order To Protect Free Speech On College Campuses

Náhled

Watch Video "To every student and young American here today, don't let anyone stop you from doing what you know is right, from asking questions, from challenging the powerful or from speaking your mind and that's the primary reason we're here right now," said President Trump. On Thursday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order he says will protect free speech on college campuses.There aren't a lot of details on how it would be enforced, but the directive says colleges that don't support free speech laws might be at risk of losing federal funding.President Trump first  made an announcement  about the order at the Conservative Political Action Conference earlier this month."If they want our dollars, and we give it to them by the billions, they've got to allow people like Hayden and many other great young people and old people to speak. Free speech," the president said. He was referring to conservative activist Hayden Williams, who was  allegedly assaulted  in February while campaigning for a right-wing group at U.C. Berkeley.U.C. Berkeley was criticized for stifling free expression after it  canceled events  with conservative speakers over safety concerns. In 2017, a scheduled appearance by Milo Yiannopoulos at Berkeley was met with violent protests, causing the event to be canceled.The university also canceled a speech by broadcast personality Ann Coulter in response.And multiple colleges, including Penn State, Michigan State University, the University of Florida and Texas A&M University, denied speaking events by white nationalist Richard Spencer in the wake of the deadly protests in Charlottesville.Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN Číst dále >>> Přeložit do cs

Many 2020 Dems Say They Back Reparations — But What Does It Mean?

Náhled

Watch Video 2020 Democratic presidential candidates are not shying away from the conversation about reparations for descendants of slaves and those who lived in the Jim Crow era. Former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro: "This country should resolve the original sin of slavery, and one of the ways we should consider doing that is through reparations."U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris: "We had over 200 years of slavery. We had Jim Crow for almost a century. … We have got to recognize that and … give folks a lift up." Even entertaining the idea is a pretty big departure from recent years. In 2016,  President Barack Obama Hillary Clinton  and  Bernie Sanders  all said policies to uplift all Americans would be more practical than specific reparations for black Americans. That's also long been the mainstream political view on the issue. "American presidents from Bill Clinton to George Bush to Barack Obama liked to talk about 'a rising tide lifts all boats,' and they liked to talk about how they were able to lower joblessness in the black community or raise incomes. But it's interesting that they never talk about raising it to parity with white people." Now, most current Democratic candidates have talked about the impact of centuries of slavery and racist laws that have contributed to today’s inequalities. But none have explicitly endorsed direct compensation to the descendants of slaves. Political science professor Alvin Tillery says the discussion is important nonetheless."If we don't get to … fully fleshed-out policy proposals in this campaign, then perhaps we will if one of them wins the White House, and perhaps we will in the next campaign. Change is always incremental, and I'm happy to see where we're headed."Tillery believes black Americans should be compensated with cash subsidies because he says it was cash subsidies to white Americans that created  the enduring racial wealth gap ."It's not just the fact that the labor of enslaved blacks made this country rich. ... But it's when the government comes along in the late 19th century and suppresses African-Americans and simultaneously subsidizes the lives of white people. ... And one of the big drivers of the disparities was cash transfers to white veterans coming back after World War II, the GI Bill. … The problem, if you're African-American, is that the military was segregated. So you could not even get in to then get  those GI Bill benefits  when you came home. So direct cash transfers to white people is what has made this gap, and I think direct cash transfers to black people is what has the potential to fix it." Now,  critics say  determining who qualifies for compensation and who doesn't would be a difficult task. "What do you do with, for example, with Barack Obama, whose father was black and not from the United States, and therefore not having history in slavery, and a mother who is white? Would his family receive slavery reparations? How about Kamala Harris, whose father is Jamaican and mother is Indian — does she receive slavery reparations?" But Tillery has a plan. "It's not just about benefits accruing to a race or a skin color. It's about benefits accruing to the victims of racist policies. And so that's where we can easily draw those lines. So if you're an African immigrant who comes to Washington, D.C., or Atlanta in 1955, and you live in segregated America, and your children go to segregated schools, then you qualify for reparations, in my view. If you're a post-1985 immigrant — as 95 percent of African immigrants are — then you don't qualify."Other tough questions about implementing reparations include, "How much would it c Číst dále >>> Přeložit do cs

The US Might Need A New Approach To North Korea's Nuclear Program

Náhled

Watch Video The Trump administration's approach to North Korea's nuclear program has been pretty simple: North Korea must completely disarm in exchange for sanctions relief. But after a summit in Vietnam ended in shambles, North Korean disarmament looks as far away as ever — and some experts say it might be time to consider other options.Adam Mount is the director of the Defense Posture Project at the Federation of American Scientists. He headed up a study group that recently published  a road map  for how to deal with a nuclear-armed North Korea without pushing for immediate disarmament.Mount told Newsy: "North Korea has expanded, diversified, increasingly concealed its nuclear arsenal. And when we continue just to ask for complete disarmament, it distracts us from addressing a bunch of those concerns."The report suggests the U.S. and its allies should negotiate a threshold agreement with North Korea, imposing conditions that will impede the country's weapons program but stop short of full disarmament. The U.S. would have to be prepared to offer something in return — including limited sanctions relief.That's something the Trump administration has been unwilling to do.SEE MORE: North Korea Says It May Suspend Nuclear Talks With U.S. During an address to the United Nations Security Council, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said: "Enforcement of U.N. Security Council sanctions must continue vigorously and without fail until we realize the fully final, verified denuclearization."But economic pressure alone hasn't moved North Korea toward disarming. The country views its nuclear program as a vital shield against foreign aggression; it's unlikely to abandon it unless the regime feels much more secure against outside attacks.Mount said: "The North Koreans don't trust us just as much as we don't trust them. So it's difficult to credibly commit to the North Koreans to say, yes, we will provide you with economic incentives after this denuclearization process occurs. So it's more plausible, more realistic, more likely that you can reach a strong agreement if you're building this pattern of coordination, of arms control, of threat reduction over the course of the next decade and the next several years."Nuclear weapons or not, North Korea is still one of the world's worst actors on human rights and international law. Engaging the regime without focusing on disarmament might be a bitter pill to swallow for some human rights advocates, but Mount argues it's a necessary first step to make progress.Mount told Newsy: "We've got to remember that the goal is to improve the welfare and support the rights of the North Korean people themselves. And that means building leverage rather than sacrificing it. It's a healthy and literate and connected economically empowered populace that's going to help North Korea transform for the better help them behave more responsibly in the region."

House Panel Asks About Jared Kushner's Use Of WhatsApp

Náhled

Watch Video The House oversight committee  is again demanding that the White House answer questions about administration officials' communication methods. This time, it's homing in on senior adviser Jared Kushner's alleged use of WhatsApp for official business with foreign leaders.  In a letter  sent to the White House counsel Thursday, the panel's chair Rep. Elijah Cummings outlined new information that lawmakers have gotten hold of. That included Kushner's attorney reportedly stating that his client uses WhatsApp in his official duties with people outside the U.S. But the attorney says Kushner is "in compliance with the law."  The committee's  been looking into White House security procedures over the past few years,  without much cooperation  from the Trump administration. It's interested in the issue because of the  Presidential Records Act,  which states senior White House officials can't use non-official systems for government business. Cummings is giving the White House until March 28 to confirm whether or not it'll comply with the request for more information. He wants an outline of how it safeguards classified information by April 4. Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN Číst dále >>> Přeložit do cs

Trump Calls For US To Recognize Golan Heights As Part Of Israel

Náhled

Watch Video President Donald Trump says the United States should "fully recognize Israel's sovereignty" over the Golan Heights. Both the U.S. and the United Nations have viewed the disputed area as occupied Syrian territory for 52 years.He made the push on  Twitter Thursday  saying the move "is of critical strategic and security importance."Israel seized Golan Heights from Syria in the Six-Day War of 1967 and annexed it in 1981.In a joint press conference with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called it a "miracle.""We are deeply grateful for the U.S. support. We're deeply grateful for the unbelievable and unmatchable support for our security and our right to defend ourselves," said Netanyahu.Netanyahu stands to benefit politically from the announcement because of his continued pressure on the U.S. to recognize the Golan Heights as part of Israel. He goes up for re-election in just a few weeks and is scheduled to visit the White House next Monday.If it's formalized, the change would follow President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the  capital of Israel  and relocate the U.S. Embassy to the city from Tel Aviv.Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .

Maryland On Track To Be Next State With $15-An-Hour Minimum Wage

Náhled

Watch Video Maryland is on track to increase its minimum wage to $15 an hour, despite an anticipated veto from the governor. Both chambers in Maryland's state legislature  passed a bill  this week to hit that minimum wage by 2025. Companies with 14 employees or fewer would get a few extra years to hit the $15 mark. The state's current minimum wage is $10.10 an hour. The first hike to $11 an hour would go into effect Jan. 1, 2020, and the minimum wage would continue to go up by 75 cents to $1 each January for the next five years. Republican Gov. Larry Hogan already  expressed his concerns  about the bill, indicating he might issue a veto. But Democrats hold a strong majority in both chambers, and based on the bill's initial votes, lawmakers have enough support to override a veto. If the bill goes into law, Maryland will be the sixth state to pass legislation to reach $15 an hour — which is the highest minimum wage in the country.
