    Springsteen and Obama on friendship and fathers: ‘You have to turn your ghosts into ancestors’

    Springsteen:
    “The trick is you have to turn your ghosts into ancestors. Ghosts haunt you. Ancestors walk alongside you and provide you with comfort and a vision of life that’s going to be your own. My father walks alongside me as my ancestor now. It took a long time for that to happen.”

    In New Letter, Tech Expert’s Lawyer Insists Alfa-Bank, Trump Server Data Is No Hoax

    “Rachel Maddow reports
    on a new letter to special counsel John Durham and Attorney General Merrick Garland
    from the lawyer for a tech expert that pushes back on how researchers’ findings about interactions between
    a server related to Alfa-Bank and a server related to the Trump Organization,
    are characterized in Durham’s indictment of Michael Sussmann.”

    Kal Penn on Hollywood racism, finding love and working in the Obama White House
    (by Amy Kuperinsky)

    “Kal Penn also served as the associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement and President Barack Obama’s liaison to young Americans, the arts community, and Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

    The point is, Kal Penn contains multitudes.

    The Jersey-bred actor’s new memoir, “You Can’t Be Serious,” (Nov. 2, Gallery Books) takes us behind closed doors in Hollywood auditions, Obama’s first presidential campaign and the offices of the White House.
    In the warm book, Penn also talks publicly for the first time about being gay, his personal life and how he met his husband-to-be.”

    Protests at COP26 Climate Summit
    Call on U.K. to Block Massive Cambo Oil Field Off Scotland’s Coast

    “As the U.K. government tries to claim the mantle of climate leadership at the U.N. Climate Change Conference, we speak with Mary Church, head of campaigns at Friends of the Earth Scotland. She describes how activists are calling on U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson to block the development of the giant Cambo oil field off the coast of Scotland, which would run counter to the U.N. goals of phasing out fossil fuels. “We know that fossil fuels need to be phased out long, long before 2050, but this proposal is to keep on drilling oil until 2050,” says Church, adding that the extraction of 800 million barrels of oil would be “the equivalent of 10 years of Scotland’s annual emissions.”

    BLOODSHED
    For 187 harrowing minutes, the president watched his
    supporters attack the Capitol — and resisted pleas to stop them.

    “President Donald Trump had just returned to the White House from his rally at the Ellipse on Jan. 6
    when he retired to his private dining room just off the Oval Office,
    flipped on the massive flat-screen television and took in the show.
    At the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue, thousands of his supporters were wearing his red caps,
    waving his blue flags and chanting his name.
    Live television news coverage showed the horror accelerating minute by minute
    after 1:10 p.m., when Trump had called on his followers to march on the U.S. Capitol.
    The pro-Trump rioters toppled security barricades.
    They bludgeoned police.
    They scaled granite walls.
    And then they smashed windows and doors to breach the hallowed building
    that has stood for more than two centuries as the seat of American democracy.”

    He Reported An ‘Avalanche’ Of Warnings Before Jan. 6. So Why Wasn’t It Heeded?

    “A week before the January 6th event, we were essentially drinking through a firehose as far as information and intelligence,” former D.C. Homeland Security official Donell Harvin tells Chris Hayes.
    “I’m just as curious as you and the American public are about what happened with that information.”

    • November 2, 2021 at 11:43 am

      Chris Hayes:
      “But this report leaves little question there were plenty of warning signs.
      “The Head of Intelligence D.C.`s Homeland Security Office was growing desperate.
      For days Donell Harvin and his team had spotted increasing signs that supporters of President Donald Trump were planning violence when Congress meant to formalize the electoral college vote.
      Federal law enforcement agencies did not seem to share his sense of urgency.

      After Harvin heard from his counterparts across the country, they were seeing the same troubling signs.
      He did everything he could to sound a warning:
      “Forty-eight hours before the attack, Harvin began pressing every alarm button he could. He invited the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Homeland Security, military intelligence services, and other agencies to see the information in real time as his team collected it”.
      He took another extreme step.
      He asked the city’s Health Department to convene a call in D.C. area hospitals
      and urged them to prepare for a mass casualty event.
      “Empty your emergency rooms” he said, “and stock up your blood banks”.

      Despite his efforts, the Capitol Police were still woefully unprepared when thousands of Trump supporters swarmed the Capitol.”

  34. November 2, 2021 at 11:57 am

    “During the 187 minutes that Trump stood by,
    harrowing scenes of violence played out in and around the Capitol.

    Twenty-five minutes into Trump’s silence,
    a news photographer was dragged down a flight of stairs and thrown over a wall.

    Fifty-two minutes in, a police officer was kicked in the chest and surrounded by a mob.
    Within the first hour, two rioters died as a result of cardiac events.
    Sixty-four minutes in, a rioter paraded a Confederate battle flag through the Capitol.
    Seventy-three minutes in, another police officer was sprayed in the face with chemicals.
    Seventy-eight minutes in, yet another police officer was assaulted with a flagpole.
    Eighty-three minutes in, rioters broke into and began looting the House speaker’s office.
    Ninety-three minutes in, another news photographer was surrounded, pushed down and robbed of a camera. Ninety-four minutes in, a rioter was shot and killed.
    One hundred two minutes in, rioters stormed the Senate chamber, stealing papers and posing for photographs around the dais.
    One hundred sixteen minutes in, a fourth police officer was crushed in a doorway and beaten with his own baton.

    All in the first two hours.”

      Rosalind Helderman is one of the many reporters who helped piece together the Washington Post`s comprehensive look at the events before during and after January 6th:

      “Yes. I mean we know that at that time the then-President was not even in the Oval Office.
      He was in his private dining room.
      And all kinds of people were trying to reach him and get him to speak out and he would not do it.
      He appeared to be charged by the crowd.”

    Donald Trump was Commander-In-Chief of the United States on Jan 6th.

  36. November 2, 2021 at 12:51 pm

    Lawrence O’Donnell:

    “On Saturday the National Archives detailed in a court filing
    exactly which records Donald Trump is suing to keep secret from the January 6 Committee.
    In his lawsuit, Donald Trump is claiming executive privilege.
    (The problem with that is that legal claims of executive privilege belong exclusively to the President of the United States who is Joe Biden, not Donald Trump.)

    And President Biden has ordered the Archives to turn over that material.
    Donald Trump is trying to block the release of nearly 800 pages of documents,
    including files of his former chief of staff Mark Meadows, including a handwritten note listing potential or scheduled briefings and telephone calls concerning the January 6 certification and other election issues,
    the White House daily diary and information showing White House visitors, logs of phone calls to Donald Trump and to Mike Pence, presidential activity calendars and a related handwritten note for January 6,
    and a draft text of a presidential speech for the rally before the Insurrection.”

    Remarks by President Biden at the “Action on Forests and Land-Use” Event

    “If we all work together to make sure these precious resources are conserved in Africa and around the world, forests have the potential to reduce — reduce carbon globally by more than one third — by more than one third.
    So, we need to approach this issue with the same seriousness of purpose as decarbonizing our economies. That’s what we’re doing in the United States.”

    “Preserving forests and other ecosystems can and should play an important role in meeting our ambitious climate goals as part of the net-zero emissions strategy we all have.”

    Remarks by President Biden in Meeting on the Build Back Better World Initiative

    “And the choices to build, for example, a coal plant today instead of a solar or wind farm could mean that — another 30 years of burning fossil fuels. Expanding a road instead of investing in mass transit could shape a city for a generation and the carbon footprint in that city.

    Every choice we make in this decisive decade — and I mean it literally, between now and 2030 — has to bring us closer — closer to, not push us farther away from, a sustainable path to net-zero emissions by 2050.

    That recognition was front and center when I announced the Build Back Better World initiative in June, along with our G7 partners.”

    Remarks by President Biden
    at “Accelerating Clean Technology Innovation and Deployment” Event

    “The First Movers Coalition is starting with more than two dozen of the world’s largest and most innovative companies. The coalition represents eight major sectors that comprise 30 percent of the global emissions we now are dealing with — steel, shipping, aluminum, concrete, trucking, aviation, chemicals, and direct air capture.

    These companies will be critical partners in pushing for commercially viable alternatives to decarbonize the industrial — these industrial sectors and more, and while championing the U.S. innovation of good-paying jobs at the same time. And the U.S. government is going to use our enormous market power as the world’s largest buyer of goods and services — some $650 billion in acquisitions annually — to do the same. The government purchases that much.

    Together, these policies, God-willing, will spur a wave of new and better products into the market, and new companies and projects that will create good-paying jobs.”

    Absurdity Of Texas Abortion Law Laid Bare In Supreme Court Arguments

    “Dahlia Lithwick,
    senior editor and legal correspondent for Slate, talks with Rachel Maddow
    about the Supreme Court’s hearing of challenges to the Texas law nearly banning abortions.”

    • November 2, 2021 at 5:38 pm

      Elizabeth Prelogar, U.S. Solicitor General:
      (sworn in on Friday)

      “The final point is to just step back for a moment and think about the startling implications
      of Texas’s argument here. Across the arguments this morning, Texas’s position is that no one can sue,
      not the women whose rights are most directly affected,
      not the providers who have been chilled in being able to provide these women with care,
      and not the United States in this suit.
      They say that federal courts just have no authority under existing law to provide any mechanism to redress the harm. And if that is true, if a state can just take this simple mechanism of taking its enforcement authority and giving it to the general public backed up with a bounty of $10,000 or $1 million,
      if they can do that then no constitutional right is safe. No constitutional decision from this court is safe. That would be an intolerable state of affairs and it cannot be the law.

      Our constitutional guarantees cannot be that fragile.
      And the supremacy of the federal law cannot be that easily subject to manipulation.

      So we would ask this court to hold that the United States can proceed with this action and up from the preliminary injunction entered by the district court and immediately vacate the stay that the Fifth Circuit entered in this case so that Texas cannot continue to deny women in its borders a right protected by this Court’s precedents one day longer.”

      (–Justice Roberts responds that the case is submitted)

  46. November 2, 2021 at 5:46 pm

    “Justice Elena Kagan was quick to point out in oral arguments,

    “Essentially, we would be inviting states, all 50 of them, with respect to their un-preferred constitutional rights,
    to try to nullify the law [on abortion] of — that this Court has laid down as to the content of those rights.””
