Agelbert Comment: Governor Scott of  Vermont, a Republican with Principles  :o  ;D, is showing Courage in the face of Trump Fascism. I applaud Governor Scott! 

Scott promises to fight Trump orders

Jan. 31, 2017, 5:10 am by Adam Federman and Morgan True

SNIPPET 1:

RUTLAND — Vermont leaders say they will push back against President Donald Trump’s executive order closing the borders to people from seven Muslim nations.

Republican Gov. Phil Scott, Congressman Peter Welch, D-Vt., and T.J. Donovan, the Vermont attorney general, say the order is immoral and possibly unconstitutional.

Scott issued a strongly worded rebuke of the president’s order suspending the nation’s refugee resettlement program for 120 days and indefinitely barring Syrian refugees from entering the country.

He spoke in Rutland on Monday where up to 100 refugees from Syria and Iraq were to be settled in the coming weeks. Trump’s ban indefinitely halts the resettlement of refugees in Rutland until the federal government determines that their admission is “consistent with the national interest.” The first two families arrived earlier this month, but officials say they may now be the last.

Scott said that he held a special meeting with his Cabinet on Sunday to discuss measures his administration can take to protect the rights of all Vermonters, including refugees.

“We’re going to push back,” Scott said. “I just don’t think it’s right. I don’t think it’s acceptable. It’s not who we are as Vermonters, it’s not who we are as Americans. And I think we should be more accepting. I think this infringes upon our constitutional right.”

Trump’s order bars entry to green card holders from Sudan, Libya, Syria, Iran, Somalia, Iraq and Yemen, all of which are predominantly Muslim countries, from entering the United States for 90 days, during which time the Department of Homeland Security and State Department will review the visa adjudication program.

In a statement issued late afternoon Monday, Scott said his administration would not enter into agreements that ask governors or local officials to carry out immigration enforcement functions. He underscored that law enforcement officials in Vermont would not be asked to perform any duties that “may ultimately be deemed unconstitutional” and also suggested that his office, in coordination with the Vermont Attorney General and other states, would be exploring a legal challenge to the orders under the Fourth Amendment and the 10th Amendment. Scott also called for the creation of a Civil Rights and Criminal Justice Cabinet to review and monitor the Trump administration’s immigration policies.

Scott said the president’s executive order crossed legal and ethical lines, and he took exception to the withholding of federal money from states that refuse to enforce Trump’s new immigration policies.

He applauded federal courts that issued emergency injunctions allowing green card holders to enter the country. The injunctions temporarily prevented the government from deporting refugees and immigrants who had arrived at U.S. airports last weekend.

Scott deflected a question about whether he thought the order was a Muslim ban, as many critics have characterized it, but said that wasn’t the important point.

“I just feel whether you’re Muslim or Christian it doesn’t matter,” Scott said. “We have an obligation to help.”


SNIPPET 2:

Scott Administration Actions

The Scott administration is taking the following steps “to defend and protect the Constitution, and the civil rights and safety of all Vermonters”:


1. The Governor has directed his legal counsel to coordinate with the Vermont Attorney General’s office – and other states – to assess the constitutionality of the executive orders, specifically the impact of the broad policy proclamations contained in the border security and immigration enforcement orders on the Fourth and Tenth Amendments, for the purpose of exploring a legal challenge to the orders.

2. The Governor will immediately convene a Civil Rights and Criminal Justice Cabinet, charged with further review of the Executive Orders. The Civil Rights and Criminal Justice Cabinet will identify areas that are not in compliance with current state or Constitutional law and make recommendations to the Governor. This Cabinet will include the Governor’s legal counsel, Secretary of Human Services, Secretary of Agriculture, Commissioner of Public Safety, Lt. Governor, Attorney General, Senate Pro Tem, House Speaker, State’s Attorneys Office Executive Director, Defender General, a mayor designated by the Vermont Mayor’s Coalition, and representative leaders from the Vermont Association of Chiefs of Police, and Vermont Sheriffs’ Association.

3. The Governor will elect not to enter the agreements suggested under the border security and immigration enforcement orders, which ask Governors and local officials to carry out immigration enforcement functions. Further, he will seek legislation and support from lawmakers to prohibit local officials from entering such agreements with the Federal government. This action will not prohibit law enforcement officers’ ability to uphold the law, but it will ensure they are not carrying out additional actions under the executive order that may ultimately be deemed unconstitutional or infringe on the rights of Vermonters or the rights of Vermont as a sovereign State.

 4. The Administration is reaching out to the U.S. Departments of Justice and Homeland Security for further clarification on each of these orders, and how they relate to Vermont’s sizable refugee and immigrant populations.

5. The Administration is coordinating with refugee program administrators and stakeholders within impacted industries to keep them informed on its efforts, address concerns, and communicate impact.

It would appear that Trump’s NSA is rapidly morphing into Kommissariat 5 of the Geheimstadtspolitzei, Ministerium fur Staatssicherheit der DDR. And that will continue until the NSA is abolished, either by the Congress or by a “V” for Vendetta type reaction of the population. You now have some 145,000 personnel doing spying on everyone else, at a cost of some $65 Billion a year of your scarce taxpayer dollars.

So you have to ask yourself: how is it that the nation of Americans, the one social group on the planet that has for centuries so zealously guarded religious liberties going back to the days of Roger WIlliams and Ben Franklin, end up electing someone who seeks to (very rapidly) convert the entire country into an internment camp?   


There is something seriously wrong with this man.

Email from Senator Sanders
February 10, 2017

Dear Mr. Gelbert:

Thank you for contacting me regarding President Donald Trump’s nomination of Senator Jeff Sessions to serve as Attorney General. I voted against his confirmation because I do not believe the American people can trust Sessions to uphold the values of our Constitution as Attorney General.

For years, there have been very worrisome allegations about Session’s views on race.  In fact, in 1986, a Senate committee denied him a federal judgeship precisely because of those concerns.  Given his record, I continue to have deep reservations about his commitment to upholding the civil rights of all Americans.

I also have serious concerns about Sessions’ record on privacy and government surveillance. He has strongly supported the USA PATRIOT Act, which I believe gives the government far too much power to spy on innocent United States citizens, with little to no oversight or disclosure.

Moreover, I do not believe Sessions will provide the leadership we need to reform our broken criminal justice system.  At a time when there are 2.2 million people incarcerated in the U.S., causing an immense burden for taxpayers, we need sentencing reforms to reduce our incarcerated population and drive down recidivism rates. Unfortunately, Sessions has repeatedly opposed efforts to reduce sentences for nonviolent crimes, and opposes reentry programs for offenders.

Lastly, Sessions has opposed nearly every immigration bill that has come before the Senate that has included a path to citizenship for immigrants.  The Attorney General has significant discretion in the application of immigration laws, and I am deeply concerned that he will pursue policies that will tear families and communities apart. 

The Justice Department has the responsibility of enforcing the laws of our nation, including such bedrock principles as protecting the right to vote, shielding citizens from discrimination, and standing up for civil liberties. Sessions’ record does not reassure me that he will strongly enforce those principles. For those reasons and more, I voted no on his nomination to be Attorney General of the United States. 

Thank you again for contacting me, and please feel free to stay in touch about this or any other subject of interest to you.  For up-to-date information on what I am working on, please sign-up for my e-newsletter, the Bernie Buzz, at http://sanders.senate.gov/buzz/.

Sincerely,

BERNARD SANDERS
United States Senator

Populist Coalition Beats Back Chevron in California Refinery Town 

 Sunday, February 12, 2017 

By Mark Karlin, Truthout | Interview

SNIPPET:

Can progressive coalitions unite around common interests to successfully battle powerful foes?
    Yes is the answer, as this interview with Steve Early about his book Refinery Town reveals.

Mark Karlin: What are the demographics of Richmond, California, and its contrast to its neighbors, such as Berkeley?

Steve Early: Richmond is a blue-collar city of 110,000, just a few miles from Berkeley. It is 80 percent non-white. About 40 percent of its population is Latino, 30 percent African American, and 10 percent Asian. Nearly one-fifth of its families live at or near the poverty line. It has the lowest median income of 101 cities in the nine-county Bay Area and Latino family income is about $5,000 a year less than that citywide figure.

It's definitely not a university town, like Berkeley. It's been a city of industry for more than a century, growing up around a railhead and ferry to San Francisco, a Standard Oil refinery and a port area that included, during World War II, a Kaiser shipyard employing 100,000 workers.

What is the role of Chevron and the Chevron refinery in Richmond politics?


Until the early 21st century, Richmond City Hall and municipal politics were dominated by Chevron (nee Standard Oil). Big Oil is Richmond's largest employer and a reliable patron of old-guard Democrats, Black or white, eager to do its bidding. Chevron's political partners have included the Richmond Chamber of Commerce and local manufacturers' association, various developers, the building trades, and often, equally conservative public safety unions.

In the last three election cycles alone, Chevron, its labor allies -- and other big special interests -- spent more than $7 million trying to elect business-friendly candidates and defeat activists who are trying to make their city safer, cleaner, greener and more equitable for all its residents. Chevron's tendency to put production and profit ahead of workplace safety, community health and the future of the planet provides no shortage of issues to organize around between elections. Thanks to their year-round, non-electoral work, candidates fielded by the Richmond Progressive Alliance (RPA) have won 10 out of the 16 municipal races they have entered since 2004.

What is the Richmond Progressive Alliance, and why should it be a role model for progressives?

Uncomfortable truths: The role of slavery and the slave trade in building northern wealth


By Denise Oliver Velez

# blackhistorymonth  # blackwomen  # CivilRights  # TeachingResources  # VotingRights 


"If you're in a coalition and you're comfortable, you know it's not a broad enough coalition." Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon
   
Sunday Feb 12, 2017 ·  9:00 AM EST

SNIPPET:

The Rev. James Rowe describes her statue, which he sees on his early morning jog:

Quote
She is carrying two heavy jugs, one of liquor and one of molasses, back from the Rondout Creek area where she would have purchased them for her owner who ran the local Jug Tavern. The statue is beautiful, but it is not pretty. Her clothing is a rag of a dress, her feet bare, her back showing the scars of beatings, and in the predawn light I can almost see the determination in her eyes set toward freedom.

He muses about his white privilege in the land of Sojourner’s slavery.

Quote
And as my predawn runs and ministry take me along these historic and ancestral streets alive with ghosts, I cannot help but wonder occasionally how my life would have turned out if my ancestors had been Mohegan instead of white settlers or slaves instead of free. I say occasionally because as a white, male, cisgender person I have the privilege to be able to not think about such things because who I am as considered the norm for our society. And not thinking or speaking about these things is the preferred societal, "normal" thing to do. [b\When I talk about my white privilege in my predominately white privileged world, I get pushback from others.[/b]

That pushback likely comes from those to whom any mention of privilege makes them uncomfortable—or is received as an affront, and not merely a fact of life. Hopefully, the sight of young Isabella pushes other viewers to introspection.


Lengthy article with many historical facts about how the yankees in New England profited from slavery that you may not know about.

Celebrating the First Black Female Zoologist   

Posted On February 23, 2017 by Marja Diaz

Howard University is just down the street. As a historically black college in Washington D.C., Howard’s been churning out incredible role models like Kamala Harris (Attorney General of California), Toni Morrison (Nobel Prize for literature) and Taraji P. Henson (star of Hidden Figures, and also your favorite character on Empire).

Besides releasing class upon class of bad-ass black alumnus, Howard was also home to a trailblazer in the conservation field:  Roger Arliner Young, the first African American woman to earn a doctorate degree in Zoology.

I may be a bit biased, considering her name graces the title of my fellowship, the same one dedicated to increasing diversity in the rapidly changing face of conservation. Regardless, Young is an inspiration, because being the first is hard. But it can be even harder as a woman, and a woman of African American decent, pursuing a zoology degree in the 1920’s.

So who exactly was Ms. Young?
Roger Arliner Young

Roger Arliner Young grew up in Pennsylvania, earning her way into Howard University in 1916 to study music. However, under the wing of a prominent black biologist named Ernest Everett Just, she pursued animal biology.

Like any true underdog story, her time there was not easy. She struggled with grades, dealt with mental health problems and later became the sole supporter of her ailing mother. But Young faced her demons and graduated in 1923 with a B.S. in Zoology, went on to teach at Howard and even earned a Master’s in Zoology from the University of Chicago. Although she worked and researched with Just for many years at Howard, her name never appeared as a coauthor on any of his publications.

Then, in 1924 she published her first article, “On the excretory apparatus in Paramecium” in the journal Science (still one of the most revered journals today), making her the first African-American woman to research and publish in this field.

Her Ph.D. came later, and Young earned a doctorate in Zoology from the University of Pennsylvania in 1940. Throughout her time as a scientist, she focused on marine organisms, conducting research on everything from radiation effects on sea urchin eggs to hydration and dehydration of living cells.

In honor of Black History Month, it’s important to both celebrate the accomplishments of pioneers like Young, and acknowledge the difficulties in their paths that paved the way for ours. And although this progress continues, there is still much work to be done in diversifying the field of conservation.

Today, climate change and increasing environmental stressors disproportionately affect communities of color. From Standing Rock to continued coastal flooding in Louisiana, we see climate change, sea level rise and pollution hurting communities we should be fighting with and for to protect.

Issues like these highlight the need for leaders of color in conservation. And to ensure that regardless of gender, race, class, religion or background everyone’s voices are heard equally.

Fortunately, organizations like Ocean Conservancy are committed to this change, working to increase diversity throughout environmental organizations with the RAY—Roger Arliner Young—Marine Conservation Diversity Fellowship, a program dedicated to supporting emerging leaders in marine conservation.

As a woman of color amidst the end of black history month and the rapidly approaching kickoff of International Women’s Day in March, I couldn’t be more proud to celebrate Roger Arliner Young, and the slew of diverse leaders headed this way.

“First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers are with the officer and her family during this difficult time. I think I speak for our McDonald’s family when I say how proud we are of Pedro. He is an excellent employee, so it didn’t surprise me that he took immediate action and jumped through a window to help save this woman.  And he was not the only member of the team that played a pivotal role in ensuring she received the medical attention she needed. A second employee, who asked to remain unnamed, assisted with CPR. Their quick thinking and action were everything in that moment.”

Agelbert NOTE: This is the type of news that will make it rather difficult for the Fascists in the Trump Wrecking Crew to demonize latinos and other minorities. The propagandized Trump followers, even the red neck racists, will soon realize that all the xenophobic BALONEY from the Trump/Bannon wrecking crew is just a divide and conquer distraction from their 24/7 looting of the public coffers on behalf of the fossil fuel industry fascists.

We-the-people of the planet earth are all one people. Those who would try to make us fight each other on the basis of ethnicity, nationality, culture, color or creed are the only enemies we have to worry about.
