      tRump motivates through threats. Most recent example is threatening to withhold Federal funds from states who don’t open schools.

      [IMO] We call it quid pro quo, but in reality, it is still a threat if only one side is truly benefiting — i.e., tRump — and the other side will lose something if they don’t comply.

    Leaving this here in the middle of the night, so you may all have something of joy and hope to greet your day (now, back to sleep, if I can!) {{{ TOD }}}

    And the original:

    We may be seeing seeds of love planted, and shards of light left behind, loving kindness being demonstrated around the planet, to help us through these dark times, to give us all a renewed sense of hope, may we as a species finally awaken to how fragile all of life can be.

    I suspect more cities will be doing much the same.

    Are Republicans — at national and state levels — even considering alternatives to live, in-person conventions or are they taking their cues from “El Leader”?

    Mind boggling relentless trump scandal roundup…for starters anyway:
    “Rachel Maddow rounds up some of the many scandals that Donald Trump has inflicted on the U.S. presidency, noting that many slide by despite their seriousness because they’re so quickly supplanted by a new scandal.”

    “CDC will not rewrite guidelines for reopening schools despite criticism from Trump”
    “Dr. Robert Redfield said the agency would be issuing “additional reference documents” for parents and schools to facilitate the reopening and deal with safety concerns in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. But he said there would be no changing of the overall guidance.”
    —thanks we need more standing up to trump, he’s only in for a few more months.

    “You know we have a judicial process that when speed is necessary, we all can see that happening.”
    (Michael Beschloss)
    Rachel Maddow:
    “Both of the cases as I said were 7-2 rulings.
    But in these rulings the court made clear, that all nine of the justices, all nine agree that the president does not have what he’s been calling “absolute immunity” from the legal system. Chief Justice John Roberts writing for the majority: “We cannot conclude that absolute immunity is necessary or appropriate under Article 2 of the supremacy laws.” He then said “Our dissenting colleagues agree.” Which is true. Justice Kavanaugh writing in dissent: “The court today unanimously concludes that a president does not possess absolute immunity from a state criminal subpoena.” That was unanimous. Yes the president can now fight the New York subpoena in the courts like a normal citizen could. Fine. But he is not immune from it because he is president, and he says he’s immune. Which is what he’s been saying ever since he got into office. So now we will see how the rest of this fight plays out in the judicial system. But this really is the presidency where the president went into court at every level and said ‘I am absolutely immune. Not only will I tell you during the campaign I can stand on 5th Avenue and shoot someone and it wouldn’t hurt me at all’. He had a lawyer go into court and say that on his behalf too. The Supreme Court says unanimously to that “No”. And what does that mean for the Donald Trump presidency?
    What does that mean for the presidency itself?”

    • July 10, 2020 at 2:07 pm

      Michael Beschloss, NBC presidential historian speaking to Maddow.
      Maddow: “ What did you make of these rulings today?”
      “I’m feeling a lot better tonight than I did this morning. I feel safer. And I think all Americans should feel the same way. Because you know modern presidents as you and I have discussed, a lot of times I think they have too much power. And the problem is even worse now because we’ve got a president Donald Trump who has authoritarian ambitions, and god knows what he will do if he didn’t have some constraint. Congress couldn’t do it. We saw how impeachment worked out. Didn’t work. So therefore we are very reliant on the Judicial branch and the Supreme Court. And so the Supreme Court, just as you’ve said Rachel, sometimes gets into this. 1952 Harry Truman said, ‘I’m seizing the steel mills because there’s a danger of a steel strike that might jeopardize the Korean War. The Supreme Court said ‘Forget it, you can’t do that 6-3. It’s unconstitutional.’ Truman was furious. He said ‘how could those liberals on the court do this to me?’ 1974 U.S. v Nixon: The Nixon’s tape case, the Supreme Court unanimously said ‘You have to give up your tapes. There’s an investigation of possible crimes’. And here today we now have this ruling that was 7-2 in which the Supreme Court stood up to Donald Trump. And maybe most important of all, that included Gorsuch and Kavanaugh his two appointees. Trump may have very cynically figured ‘I gave them their jobs, they’re going to protect me’. They didn’t do it. I think we should feel a lot better.”

    • July 10, 2020 at 2:10 pm

      “Michael in terms of how this practically proceeds. To the extent that the White House did have any sigh of relief today, and I think the president’s critics wanted even more from the court, it’s the issue of timing.
      The fact that the way this is resolved is that both of these cases, the subpoenas from Congress and the subpoenas from the state prosecutors, they do go back to lower courts for the president to fight against these subpoenas there. Is there something important in historical precedent in terms of the speed with which the courts resolve things? When it’s an important matter related to a president, when it’s an important matter in terms of potential criminal behavior by a president. Have the courts in the past shown the ability to move more quickly than we might otherwise expect?”

      “Oh sure they do. Summer of 1974. Supreme Court moved in record time to resolve U.S. v Nixon on the tapes. We all remember Bush v Gore, December of the year 2000. When the Supreme Court was very fast in resolving that. You know we have a judicial process that when speed is necessary, we all can see that happening.’

    The insightful Congressman Raskin to Hayes:
    “It was a good day for the rule of law Chris. But you know we are in the end days here of a nightmarish authoritarian right wing predatory presidency. He’s getting increasingly desperate. When you were saying there was one phenomenon he can’t bully and it’s COVID-19 – that assumes that he considers COVID-19 his enemy. And I’m not sure he does any more. I think he believes that COVID-19 and the rampant spread of the disease around the country is his best bet for voter suppression. And being able to manipulate the electoral process. And so I don’t think he considers it an enemy any more. And he certainly is not doing anything to try to stem the tide.”
