Charlottesville Violence Spurs New Resistance to Confederate Symbols

In Charlottesville, the violence left a 32-year-old woman dead after far-right protesters gathered to protest plans to move a statue of the Confederate general Robert E. Lee from a local park. And on Tuesday, President Trump, in remarks defending some of the far-right protesters, asked aloud whether the removal of Confederate statues would prompt the erasure of monuments to slaveholders like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.Now local and state officials in states like North Carolina, Texas and Tennessee are facing the outrage of liberal and African-American constituencies, who say the statues should have never gone up in the first place, and the fury of some whites who fear their history is being erased.On Wednesday night, Gov. Terry McAuliffe of Virginia said that Confederate monuments in the state should be taken down, and he urged local and state leaders to move them into museums. Two years ago, Mr. McAuliffe argued in support of keeping the statues in public spaces, saying that “these are all parts of our heritage.”In some cases, conservative Southern legislatures have passed laws preventing the statues’ removal or destruction.In Birmingham, officials on Tuesday erected a black plywood barrier to block any view of the base of a Confederate obelisk that has loomed over a city park since 1905. Mayor William A […]

Excerpts From The Times’s Interview With Trump

HABERMAN: [Rod J.] Rosenstein.TRUMP: Who is he? And Jeff hardly knew. He’s from Baltimore.________TRUMP: Yeah, what Jeff Sessions did was he recused himself right after, right after he became attorney general. And I said, “Why didn’t you tell me this before?” I would have — then I said, “Who’s your deputy?” So his deputy he hardly knew, and that’s Rosenstein, Rod Rosenstein, who is from Baltimore. There are very few Republicans in Baltimore, if any. So, he’s from Baltimore […]

Watch out: Notorious climate denier Lamar Smith is fixated on “Making EPA Great Again.”

The state’s Republican governor, Larry Hogan, had vetoed a bill that would require utilities to buy 25 percent of their electricity from wind, hydroelectric dams, and other renewable sources by 2020, but legislators voted to override his veto.

Now this new, stronger renewable energy standard replaces the previous one, which had called for utilities to be getting 20 percent of their power from clean sources by 2020.

Democrats argued the bill would create jobs, mitigate climate change, and clean up air pollution. Republicans said it would cost too much. According to the Baltimore Sun, “Nonpartisan legislative analysts estimated it might raise residential electricity bills by 48 cents to $1.45 per month.”

It’s easy to focus on the U.S. presidency — that’s the center of the national reality show. But much of the substantive policy in this country is made on the state and local levels, where people are often more practical than ideological — or, you could say, more likely to be tailored for reality, rather than for reality TV.

This Natural Disaster Assistance Law Is Why Other States Are Policing Dakota Access Pipeline Protests

Cross-Posted from DeSmogBlog Almost exactly 20 years ago, President Bill Clinton signed into law a bill creating an interstate agreement for emergency management. That inconspicuous law has opened the door for the current flood of out-of-state law enforcement agents present at the continuing protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) in North Dakota. The Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) authorized states to enter into agreements with other states in order to share emergency management–related personnel during crisis situations. One of the only other times this compact was deployed outside of a natural disaster was for the Black Lives Matter protests in Baltimore after the death of Freddie Gray. DeSmog reviews the use of this controversial authorization below. News is just breaking now that police are removing protesters at the site right now. According to a history of EMAC published in September 2014, the compact centers around empowering states to respond to massive hurricanes, and in particular, Hurricane Andrew, which caused nearly $25 billion in damages when it hit Florida and Louisiana in 1992. "Passage of EMAC in Congress was a relatively smooth process," reads the history of EMAC. "It was mainly a matter of obtaining sponsors and getting EMAC on the congressional calendar. […]
