    Just saw Chuck Schumer do some soft weeping on the Senate floor, he was so moved by this decision! Who would have thought that the Supreme Court would have “made our week” with both this decision and the one from Monday on LGBTQ rights. We all needed this great news, I’m thinkin’.

    Senator Kamala Harris speaks to Stephen Colbert about protests:
    Colbert: “You’ve joined protests in Washington DC. First of all did you wear a mask?”
    Senator Harris:
    “I did. But I will tell you the first protest I ever attended I was in a stroller, when my parents were marching in the ‘60s. So it’s kind of something I’ve done my entire life.”
    Colbert: “I know your Mom was politically active. What did learn from her?”
    Senator Harris:
    “I learned that the greatest movements we have seen in recent history in our country, but probably since the beginning, have been borne out protests. Have been borne out of understanding the power of the people to take to the streets and force their government to address what is wrong; the inequities, the inequalities, the unfairness. But also the conscience of a government is its people, to force the government to be true to the ideals that we say we hold dear. And almost every one of those marches has been about one fundamental ideal in our country, which is equal justice under law. And fighting to make sure we have a government in our country, that at least every few steps gets closer to achieving that ideal. We’ve not yet reached it, we’ve never actually reached it. But these protests I think are the catalyst to getting there.”

    • June 18, 2020 at 11:01 am

      Colbert: “What did you see in DC? What was it like to march in those protests?”
      Senator Harris:
      “You know I’ll tell you one of the things Stephen, that I saw that gives me such hope.
      People who seemingly have nothing in common, who know they have everything in common. It was really, it’s a beautiful sight. People of every race, age, gender. Together. And seeing the commonality, and it was then the commonality of spirit. And it’s something that is so very powerful, and I think we all have to recognize it for what it is. We have arrived at a point in our country that we should recognize, this is not just a moment, it’s a movement. It is a movement that is fueled by the diversity, the beautiful diversity of who we are, coming together as a unified body, demanding in this case, change and justice for everyone.”

    • June 18, 2020 at 11:02 am

      Colbert: “As a senator, as a politician, someone who has to respond to constituents, what do these protests mean to the ability to affect change legislatively? The reason I ask is because I woke up this morning, we do like a news breakdown at night, a news breakdown in the morning. I looked at everything and I went where’s the report on the protests? Are they gone? Are we not just talking about them any more? Because it seems to me that it has to be sustained in order to maintain the pressure, and to maintain that commonality of purpose for people of all races in the United States, to bring this kind of justice that is being called for. How important is it for these protests to continue?”

    • June 18, 2020 at 11:03 am

      Senator Harris:
      “It’s critically important, and I’m going to tell you something. I made a very conscious decision to become a prosecutor. I grew up in a community that was not always on the best end of law enforcement, in terms of how the laws were applied. There’s not a Black man I know, be he a relative or a friend, who has not been the subject of some form of racial profiling or excessive force. So when I made a decision to become a prosecutor, it was a conscious decision which was to go inside the system, and have some leverage there to effectuate change. I say that, to say this: The only way we’re going to truly achieve change is when there are people in the system who are willing, or pushing to do it. AND when there are those folks who are outside the system demanding it. I am very clear that some of the success that we’ve been able to achieve around criminal justice reform would not have happened in recent years, were it not for Black Lives Matter. And the intensity and the brilliance of that movement, that forced at least that there would be some counter-force to the status quo, which is so reluctant to change, if not hostile to change. That’s what these movement do, that where these systems are so invested and ingrained in what they call tradition, but is status quo often which can be wrong-headed, these movements provide a counter-force to get us to where we need to be.
”

      Colbert: “So even what some might call weak-tea proposals by the Republicans right now wouldn’t be happening if there weren’t these protests?”
      Senator Harris:
      “I’m sure of it. I’m sure of it. I’m sure of it. And it’s tragic because the reality is that these protests have been happening in maybe smaller form for generations. But let’s just look at where we are right now. And acknowledge to your point, yeah, had these protests, had people by the hundreds of thousands not been out there marching, many who might be relatives of those very people who have been obstructionists until now, we probably wouldn’t be where we are. But again, back to where we are, what the Republicans are proposing is by many accounts, and certainly by my account, absolutely insufficient to meet this moment. And we need to go with the Justice and Policing bill.”

    • June 18, 2020 at 11:11 am

      Colbert: “And I want to make clear that I know that there are protests still happening in major cities across the United States. I’m just not seeing the reporting on it that I had for the first few weeks.”
      Senator Harris:
      “That’s right. But they’re not going to stop. They’re not going to stop. This is a movement. I’m telling you, they’re not going to stop. And everyone beware, because they’re not going to stop. They’re not going to stop before Election Day in November. And they’re not going to stop after Election Day. And that should be – everyone should take note of that on both levels. They’re not going to let up. And they should not.
      And we should not.”

      Essential Workers… “We need to do more than praise them. We need to PAY them.”

      When I see the donations being made by major corporations to various causes that benefit people of color, my first thought, of course, is that’s a good thing.

      But then the cynicism kicks in and I wonder, once you get past the PR and the tax deductions, how are these companies treating their employees? I’m talking specifically about the hourly and lower management, many of whom are POC and are classified as essential workers. Are they making a living wage? Do they have sufficient benefits (health/dental/life insurance, retirement, paid vacation, holiday, and sick time, paid medical/family sick leave, childcare, time off to vote, etc.)? Is their work environment safe (both physical and mental)?

      Not to discount their benevolence, but IMO it would seem more genuine and meaningful if these companies are also being as generous to their hourly and lower management employees.

      Seemed blasé about the Trans ruling: “But they’ve ruled and we live with their decision. That’s what it’s all about. We live with the decision of the Supreme Court. Very powerful. A very powerful decision actually. But they have so ruled.” Am wondering if he believes he has something to follow, that’s personally important (e.g. tax returns) in the bag over at SCOTUS.

      “You can’t fix what you can’t see.”
      “Native Americans being left out of US coronavirus data and labelled as ‘other'”
      “The Guardian asked 15 state and local health departments with high Native populations if they were collecting tribal affiliation. None reported doing so.”
      “…disproportionate rates of infection and death.” (understatement)
      “Last week, the Arizona department of health services reported that Native Americans make up 16% of the state’s Covid-19 related deaths, despite representing only 6% of the state’s population. In New Mexico, Native Americans make up less than 10% of the population but over one-third of coronavirus cases. This week, the health authority for the Navajo Nation, which includes areas of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico, reported 1,197 positive coronavirus cases and 44 deaths. If it were a state, it would rank third in the country for confirmed cases per 100,000 population, behind only New York and New Jersey…”

        “We are a small population of people because of genocide. No other reason,” said Echo-Hawk.
        “Before the pandemic, the federal health system serving Native Americans was already chronically underfunded.”
        “Half of all American Indian and Alaskan Natives live in just 10 states (US Census Bureau).
        As of 21 April, all 10 had published some racial demographic data, but four – Texas, Florida, New York and Michigan – had not included a breakdown for Native Americans.”
        “Health disparities are nice words for systematic racism…it’s the residual effects of the founding of this country.”
        “Often researchers and legislators say there is no data” on health issues affecting Indian country.”
        “In Navajo Nation, for instance, one in three people do not have access to running water or electricity.”
        “If you eliminate us in the data, we don’t exist. We don’t exist for the allocation of resources.”

      • June 18, 2020 at 12:33 pm

        Mnuchin/Trump delayed and delayed and delayed federal payment for COVD-19 and now the death toll in Indian country, especially the Navajo Nation, is the worst in the country. What should have been $20 Billion
        became $8 Billion. And it has been quibbled about and held up while our precious people died.
        Vote out the post-policy party! End the GOP killing spree.

    Any much media about further details on the police officer murder of Rayshard?
    Video showed that after being shot in the back twice from 18 feet away, and on the ground struggling for his life,
    Rayshard was kicked by one officer. And another stood on his shoulder.
    Family attorney Justin Miller on Hayes: The taser did not work and the officers would’ve known that.

      We have to ask ourselves what sub-human would chat with a man, inebriated or not, in a parking lot, then kill him with two bullets for no reason, then yell “I got him” as he fell to the ground, then kick him as he lay there, while another sub-human stood on his shoulder.

      Hell on earth.

    • June 18, 2020 at 1:35 pm

      There’s got to be a psychological issue with the officer for it to quickly go from 30+ minutes of apparently cordial conversation to shooting and kicking someone. That anger rose too fast. Ignored or dismissed, there had to be some indication of these anger/psychological issues in the past.

    Oh my goodness. Watching the recording I set up of Andrea Mitchell’s show today. She interviewed Speaker Pelosi. One of the topics was Juneteenth and how trump related to it. Nancy Smash responded by saying that “Juneteenth is a very important day for many of us, even before ‘what’s his name’ ever heard of it.”

    Off to take a siesta, big smile on my face. Love that woman.

    We remember:
    Bolton would not testify even though he called Trump’s disgrace in Ukraine a “drug deal”.
    “Bolton says Trump did not want to send funds to Ukraine until they sent him dirt on Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden. Just as he was accused of doing and acquitted by Republicans in the Senate!”
    “Bolton says Trump told the Chinese Premier to go ahead and build concentration camps for the country’s Muslim minority.” “He also says Trump pleaded explicitly face to face with Xi the Chinese Premier, to ensure he’d win the coming election. “Guess what, Donald Trump is exactly as terrible as we thought he was, and Bolton is who we thought he was as well.” (Hayes)

  38. June 18, 2020 at 2:08 pm

    Daniel Goldman,
    Majority Counsel, Impeachment Enquiry against Donald Trump (that guy) to Hayes:
    “We would have loved for John Bolton to come in and tell us about all of the other malfeasance and misconduct that the president was entertaining during Bolton’s tenure there. And in fact if he had come in and testified as he was requested to do, then we might have expanded the investigation beyond Ukraine. At the end of the day he chose not to testify. There’s no legal reason why he could not testify, if he was then going to reveal the same information in a book. The only reason, I guess, are dollar signs. He’s certainly no patriot. But the thing that is so striking about what we’re reading about this book…is how consistent it is with the case that we built. Bolton not only confirms exactly what all of his lower level employees in the National Security Council and elsewhere in the government confirmed, about Trump abusing his power to essentially extort Ukraine in order to help him with the election, but it was truly what Trump’s foreign policy was. It was a foreign policy designed to help with his re-election. And that is remarkable when you see it as it relates, as you just cited to China. There is some discussion about how he wanted to overturn U.S. charges against a large Turkish bank to help Erdogan and Turkey…but it is a truly remarkable picture of a president whose sole purpose is to use his power to get himself re-elected.”

    • June 18, 2020 at 2:11 pm

      Daniel Goldman:
      “Covid has laid it bare in a way that is perhaps a little more easy to understand than Ukraine. You mention the stock market, but you’ll recall even at the beginning of the…pandemic, he didn’t want the cruise ship to land because it didn’t want the number of positive tests to go up. And he was going to miraculously evaporate the disease. And then later on, he started to use effectively the same kind of extortionate conduct that he did with President Zelensky of Ukraine against the Democratic Governors, in order to withhold aid to them, that they needed for the pandemic.”
      “Believe people when they show you who they are the first time.” (he cites Angelou)
      “Bolton reportedly said that Trump truly believes that the national interest is what is in his personal interest. He has completely assumed himself as the State. And it is a very, very dangerous situation in a democracy founded on the separation of powers.”
