Protesters in Durham Topple a Confederate Monument

VideoProtesters Tear Down Confederate Statue in DurhamDays after clashes in Charlottesville, Va., protesters toppled a statue of a Confederate soldier that had stood in front of the old Durham County Courthouse in North Carolina for nearly a century.By STACY BALLANTYNE MURPHY / FACEBOOK VIA STORYFUL on Publish Date August 14, 2017.Photo by Kate Medley/Reuters.Watch in Times Video »embed Chanting “No K.K.K., no fascist U.S.A.,” the protesters slung a rope around the Confederate soldier’s neck and pulled.The crowd stepped back, out of the way, and the soldier came crashing to the ground in a heap of crumpled metal.From Charlottesville, Va., to New Orleans, officials have removed or considered removing Confederate monuments, to sometimes-violent backlash. But in Durham, N.C., on Monday night, opponents of the relics took matters into their own hands.Shortly after 7 p.m., the protesters — part of a group of more than 100 that included anti-fascists and members of organizations like the Democratic Socialists of America, the Workers World Party and the Industrial Workers of the World, according to The News & Observer of Raleigh — toppled a statue of a Confederate soldier that had stood in front of the old Durham County Courthouse for nearly a century above the inscription, “In memory of the boys who wore the gray.”The figure fell headfirst, still attached to a piece of its pedestal, and the crowd — men and women, black and white, mostly young — erupted in whoops and cheers. Some protesters ran over and began kicking the statue. Others took photos beside it.The Durham Police Department said in a statement that it had made no arrests because the episode had occurred on county property, which is under the jurisdiction of the Durham County Sheriff’s Office. Members of the sheriff’s office filmed the protest as the statue came down, The News & Observer reported, but the office did not respond to a request for comment on Monday night, and it was not clear whether its officers had made any arrests.Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, wrote on Twitter, “The racism and deadly violence in Charlottesville is unacceptable, but there is a better way to remove these monuments.”Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storySign Up for the Race/Related NewsletterJoin a deep and provocative exploration of race with a diverse group of New York Times journalists.Thank you for subscribing.An error has occurred […]

They’re Building a Trump-Centric Movement. But Don’t Call It Trumpism.

In its inaugural issue last summer, the journal published “Our Declaration of Independence From the Conservative Movement,” which argued that what worked for Ronald Reagan could no longer define the movement.“We cannot slavishly attempt to relive the politics of 40 years ago,” the editors wrote.These disillusioned academics see plenty of things they like in the Trump administration, including Mr. Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord and his proposal to reduce legal immigration by half within a decade. And though Republicans have failed so far to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, they don’t blame the president, whom they applaud for at least trying to undo what they see as an unconstitutional expansion of government power.But in this view, Mr. Trump is not so much a movement leader as he is a vessel. “We see a lot of potential here with this particular administration,” Mr. Boychuk said, “but we’re not going to live or die by him.”If nothing else, these conservatives see Mr. Trump as a disrupter who is already jolting a movement they believe is badly ossified and reflexively devoted to an agenda of corporate tax cuts, global trade agreements and military adventurism — “checklist conservatism,” as an essay by Chris Buskirk, the publisher of American Greatness, described it.They accept the almost socialist-sounding “pro-worker” label. They believe the Republican Party has been far too complicit in the expansion of the federal bureaucracy, what they scorn as the “administrative state.” And they tend to de-emphasize social issues as a priority.“When they started saying Trump wasn’t a conservative was when I started paying attention,” said Julie Ponzi, who helps edit American Greatness from her house in Glendora, a small community about 20 miles east of Los Angeles at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains.“What’s the problem?” she insisted, referring to Mr. […]

Trump Keeps His Conservative Movement Allies Closest

Their outreach extends to groups across the ideological spectrum — small government, tax-averse Tea Party followers; gun owners; abortion opponents; evangelical Christians and other culturally traditional voters. And it reflects the importance that Mr. Trump and his aides have placed on the movement politics of the right, which they recognize as the one base of support they cannot afford to alienate since conservatives, according to Gallup, are 36 percent of the electorate.“You want the structures that deliver people, votes and enthusiasm — and he understands that,” said Grover Norquist, the veteran anti-tax activist who has been working with White House officials as they develop a tax legislation package.“Where’s Trump been the most solid?” Mr. Norquist asked, listing the range of conservative constituencies the president has prioritized. “Taxes. He’s never going to raise taxes. Pro-life, he gets that. Home schoolers, he listens to them. And guns. […]

Health Care Showdown: Senate Health Care Vote: Where the Debate Left Off and What to Watch

An explainer:When the Senate on Tuesday voted 51-50 to begin debating the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, technically senators were bringing the House-passed repeal bill to the Senate floor. For now, that is the bill that senators are trying to reshape.Continue reading the main storyOn Tuesday night, Senate Republican leaders brought to the floor their most complete version of a plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. That measure had been worked out behind closed doors by the majority leader, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, and it would dismantle major parts of the current health care law, including the requirement that most people have health insurance.But it also included an overture to Senate conservatives, a measure championed by Senator Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas, that would allow insurance companies to sell stripped down, low-cost insurance plans as long as they also offer insurance policies that comply with federal standards, including the requirement that plans cover “essential” services like maternity care, mental health treatment and prescription drugs.GraphicRepublicans Are Voting This Week to Repeal or Replace Obamacare. Here Are Their Proposals.Three major proposals are being discussed.OPEN GraphicFor moderates, the legislation includes $100 billion to help pay out-of-pocket medical costs for low-income people.Because that broad version of the Senate health care measure had not yet been assessed by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, it needed 60 votes to overcome a Democratic objection that it violated Senate rules.But it got only 43 votes, demonstrating that even after weeks of refining the legislation, Senate leaders still fell far short of enough support for their replacement plan, from both ends of the party’s ideological spectrum.Mr. McCain had previously made clear that he wanted to secure amendments to that broad repeal-and-replace bill. The vote on Tuesday night could be interpreted as a sign of support for that general approach.The debate goes on.VideoJohn McCain to Senate: ‘We’re Getting Nothing Done’Senator John McCain, who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer, spoke to the Senate after casting his vote to begin debating legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act.By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS.Photo by Gabriella Demczuk for The New York Times.Watch in Times Video »embed What’s happened so far on Wednesday?Mr. Trump opened the day by attacking Ms. Murkowski.But Mr. Trump’s public shaming is not an effective strategy for Ms. Murkowski who has dealt with worse from her party.

Trump, Tweeting About Health Care, Says, ‘We Will Return’

WASHINGTON — President Trump said early Tuesday that Democrats and “a few” Republicans were at fault for the collapse of health care legislation in the Senate, and restated his strategy to let the Affordable Care Act “fail.”In a pair of morning tweets, Mr. Trump said, “We will return,” but he provided no specifics.Senate Republicans’ hopes for a health care bill died Monday night when two Republican senators said they would oppose their party’s bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, leaving the Senate at least two votes short of what would be needed to start the debate on the proposed law.On Monday night, Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, said that “the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failure of Obamacare will not be successful.”He described a plan to vote now on a measure to repeal President Barack Obama’s signature law. But that is unlikely to pass, because it could leave millions without insurance and likely push insurance markets into turmoil.Continue reading the main story […]
