There’s nothing really new here, but it will be interesting to see conservative response to Bruce Bartlett’s article in The American Conservative entitled, Obama Is A Republican.

A mood of fear is engulfing the country which might very well affect the midterm elections.

Unfortunately but this is not the probable response. As I discussed last week, even citing […]

The Lost Generation

To compound their problem, while millenials are struggling to pay off their student loan debt, they're also struggling to find employment, another consequence of libertarian economics.

Canada, At War For 13 Years, Shocked that "A Terrorist" Attacked Its Soldiers

A country doesn't get to run around for years wallowing in war glory, invading, rendering and bombing others, without the risk of having violence brought back to it. Rather than being baffling or shocking, that reaction is completely natural and predictable. The only surprising thing about any of it is that it doesn't happen more often.

Americans think the nation is heading in the wrong direction. My biggest worries are 1) that our democracy is increasingly being transformed into a plutocracy, and 2) we are failing to address the pressing emergency of global climate change. On both issues, the Republicans are playing a destructive role, while the Democrats are failing to press the battle with the needed vigor. This pattern shows the core of America's crisis.

Scottie's terrible horrible no good...

Scottie's terrible horrible no good very bad debate

Scott Brown speaking to supporters
It's always good for a laugh when he puts on his sincere face.
Goal Thermometer You gotta love the fact that Scott Brown is providing the comic relief for yet one more election cycle. It's just gravy that he's doing it this year as a carpetbagger. Today's fun can be found in Tuesday night's debate, moderated by NBC's Chuck Todd. Todd asked him to provide the evidence for his contention that ISIS was poised at the border to attack the U.S. from Mexico. Scottie's response? BROWN: With respect, I did not say that. What I have said is that ISIS is real. Um, no, as a matter of fact. And much to Scottie's detriment, there's this thing now called the internet that helps keep a record of all the times he said that ISIS could attack the U.S. from Mexico. Dave Weigel does the research. There was when he said it last month in a foreign policy speech ("these ISIS thugs have been saying for months that they?re going to send people here to kill Americans on as big a scale as they can, and never mind that a porous border is the most obvious pathway for terrorists to enter our country"), and on Fox News ("There's deep concerns that there are members of ISIS actually coming through the border right now"), and last week on the radio, when he threw in some Ebola just for fun ("I think it?s naive to think that people aren?t going to be walking through here who have those types of diseases and/or other types of intent, criminal or terrorist").

But the most entertaining whopper from Scottie of the evening, at least for the New Hampshire crowd, was when Todd asked him why he passed up on the opportunity to run for the Senate again in Massachusetts special elections. "Because I live here," said Scottie, and you can immediately hear the laughs and the skeptical guffaws from the crowd. He doubles down, "I was born at the Portsmouth Naval shipyard!" And the crowd laughs even harder. "My mom was a waitress at Hampton Beach!" And the crowd gives up on him entirely.

Scott Brown has no place in the Senate anymore. But these candidates do. Help them get there with your $3. Defeat Mitch McConnell in just two hours. Sign up to make GOTV calls to Democrats. Ah, Scottie, thanks for all the laughs. But we really won't miss you when you're gone. On the other hand, there are 48 other states you could try.
Kochs flushing another $6.5 million...

Kochs flushing another $6.5 million in next 10 days

Screenshot of FPAF ad against Mark Udall in CO-Sen race.
If you live in Colorado, you'll be lucky enough to see this a few billion times between now and November 4.
Goal Thermometer Had enough campaign ads yet? If you live in Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, New Hampshire or North Carolina, buck up, because you're in for a real onslaught from everybody's favorite political villains, the Koch brothers. Freedom Partners Action Fund, a ?super PAC? with ties to the billionaire brothers Charles G. and David H. Koch, will broadcast $6.5 million worth of advertising in six states in the closing days of the election campaign, officials there said. [?]

The effort is among a late flurry of attacks by Republican super PACs, which raised millions of dollars through the end of summer after struggling for much of the election cycle and have been looking for ways to spend the cash.

As Markos wrote earlier, Karl Rove is busy getting in this action, getting his commissions making sure that between now and November 4 it's nothing but ads on your tv. And they're paying a massive premium to do it, "spending $5 million more in the Senate battlegrounds these last two weeks, yet they're getting 10,000 fewer ad spots."

And they're the party of fiscal responsibility? The Kochs' Freedom Partners Action Fund has already spent $16 million on ads just since August. And every race they're playing in is too close to call?all that money hasn't moved the needle at all.

Beat the Kochs. Help elect more and better Democrats with your $3. Defeat Mitch McConnell in just two hours. Sign up to make GOTV calls to Democrats. The best revenge against Rove and the Kochs and what they've done to your tv sets is beating them at the polls.

Psycho Republican claims 'Ebola czar' is 'off to bad start' because he won't testify on first day

U.S. Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) (L) speaks with Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) (R) during
Jason Chaffetz (R-Psychovia)
Auuuugh. What the fuck is wrong with these fucking lunatics? GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz, already berating Obama's new "Ebola czar," Ron Klain: "He's on the job as of today ? why not come talk to the American people in the Congress, answer questions from both Republicans and Democrats on Friday?" Chaffetz said during an interview with Fox News.

"I don?t know. We?re off to a bad start."

Are you fucking for real? The dude just started. Today. Right now. What could he possibly tell Congress so soon? And how could that possibly be a better use of his time than actually coordinating efforts to fight this dread disease?

You might almost conclude that Republicans are more interested in attacking every single thing that Obama does, in every way, at every moment, every time, however they can ... than they're interested in actually stopping Ebola. Almost.

American Family Association claims ...

American Family Association claims anti-LGBT Idaho chapel owners to be arrested. Nope.

Rainbow flag
The most terrifying sight in the world, apparently.
It looks like Coeur d'Alene's Hitching Post Wedding Chapel has adjusted their paperwork in a manner that will allow them to officially discriminate against gay members of the public. Yesterday, city attorney Michael Gridley said in a letter to the Knapps' attorneys that the city will not prosecute legitimate nonprofit religious corporations, associations and other organizations exercising First Amendment rights. Gridley, who asked that the Hitching Post drop its suit, pointed out that two weeks ago the business took steps to become a nonprofit religious corporation. Goal ThermometerAh, but if you think that's enough to stop the conspiracy theories about how the poor freedom-loving business owners are this close to being carted off to jail, you haven't been paying attention. An important part of doing God's work in these United States is to lie thine ass off in an ongoing attempt to stir up panic among the rubes, and if you think that was a really rude way for me to phrase that you really haven't been paying attention. None of that is mentioned in the American Family Association?s post about the case, which states, ?Once again, homosexual bullies have targeted Christian-owned businesses in their attempt to silence all opposition to their sinful lifestyle.? The Tupelo, Miss. group today posted a call to action for its members to contact [Mayor Steve Widmyer and Gov. Butch Otter], under the headline, ?City threatens to arrest ministers for refusing to marry gays.? Equality is a right, but it needs defenders. Chip in $3 to any of our endorsed candidates. Defeat Mitch McConnell in just two hours. Sign up to make GOTV calls to Democrats. Didn't happen. They're lying. They're always lying, because that's what the "true Christians" of the anti-equality movement do. The American Family Association is a designated hate group specifically because they have a long history of making fraudulent statements in their efforts to sow panic about The Gays, but that doesn't mean Republicans will be backing away from the hucksters anytime soon.
Nebraska Republican's 'Willie Horto...

Nebraska Republican's 'Willie Horton' ad may be backfiring

Goal ThermometerThe Republican decision to go full Willie Horton in Nebraska may not be having the intended effect. It was a calculated risk to begin with, showing just how shaky Republican Rep. Lee Terry (NE-02)'s campaign has been. It's a winnable race for the Democrats, and it may have just gotten more winnable. Brad Ashford, the Democratic state senator seeking to upset Rep. Lee Terry (R-Neb), has raised more than $20,500 from 434 online donations since national Republicans released an ad Friday that aimed to tie Ashford to a convicted murderer, the campaign said Monday.

?Rather than do the respectable thing and denounce these racist, fear-mongering ads, Lee Terry has defended them,? Kurt Gonska, Ashford?s campaign manager, said in an email.  ?It's hurting his campaign as we've seen a huge influx of individual online donations come in as a direct response to the outrage voters feel.? [...]

[T]he ad has angered many, including former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, who called the ad ?racist,? and Terry?s GOP primary opponent, Dan Frei (Jenkins is African-American.).

So perhaps the Republican ad juxtaposing Ashford with a Scary Black Man may play well with Terry's base, but it also has goosed state Democratic supporters into action and gotten Terry slammed by fellow Republicans. Help defeat Republican fearmongering by chipping in $3 to any of these Daily Kos endorsed House candidates. Defeat Mitch McConnell in just two hours. Sign up to make GOTV calls to Democrats. House Majority PAC has put up their own response ad (see above) slamming Terry, so this isn't going away. We'll see if it turns into a net negative for Terry in the voting booths, but it doesn't look to be doing him any favors so far.
DSCC sees Grimes gaining ground aga...

DSCC sees Grimes gaining ground against McConnell, reserves airtime for final push in Kentucky

Alison Lundergan Grimes speaking at campaign rally
Goal Thermometer

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee believes Kentucky is in play:

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee plans to go back on the air in Kentucky after the party has been encouraged by new polls suggesting the race against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is within reach.

The party committee is reserving $650,000 in airtime to boost Alison Lundergan Grimes after reviewing recent internal and public polling, a DSCC official told POLITICO. The polling, the source says, suggested that independent voters are moving in the Democrat?s direction.

The thing that makes this news is that a flurry of earlier reports suggested the DSCC was abandoning the state because they said they had no plans to purchase additional ads. Even though they were continuing GOTV and other efforts, that was interpreted as a signal of no confidence, but today's news turns that narrative on its head, because clearly the DSCC believes Kentucky is still within grasp. Please chip in $3 or more to help elect Democratic candidates to the U.S. Senate?whatever happens in Kentucky, we can't afford to let Mitch McConnell become majority leader. Defeat Mitch McConnell in just two hours. Sign up to make GOTV calls to Democrats. Meanwhile, the Grimes campaign itself is entering the final two weeks of the campaign with a tough new ad going after Mitch McConnell on raising the minimum wage, extending unemployment benefits, and student loans. McConnell wants the campaign to be about Barack Obama, but even though Grimes has left some ammunition on the table?specifically, McConnell's contortions on Kynect?her message is focused like a laser on McConnell and his record, because at the end of the day the question Kentucky faces is simply this: Whether or not the people of the state want Mitch McConnell to represent them in the Senate for another six years.

Indonesian police use Shootings, killings, beatings, arrests on West Papuan independence rallies

Indonesian police have opened fire on peaceful protesters in Jayapura, with at least four gunshot wounds and one death. West Papuan activists and families have been forced to flee to the jungle for safety. Indonesian security forces are conducting scores of raids, sweeps and offensives against West Papuan civilians. The attacks are happening during the visit of National Police Chief General Sutarman with over 200 people arrested across West Papua. Journalists have also been attacked by Indonesian police according to Amnesty International...Read more at San Fransisco Bay Area Indymedia. The Indonesian Police chief says any plans to free Papua from Indonesia won't be tolerated, including Flag raising ceremonies on the West Papuan national Day, December 1st.

Calls for Independence by West Papuans have been made since the sham "Act of Free Choice in 1969". They have suffered a neglected genocide at the hands of the Indonesian military (2004) with continued Repression (2007). Thousands of Papuans took to the streets in 2010 and in 2011 rejecting special autonomy, demanding a referendum on independence. Indonesia plans to build 1,500 km of new roads in the next two years to accelerate ?development', increase military presence, and open up more illegal logging. Three Papuans highlighted the human rights abuses at the APEC meeting in Bali this year by scaling the Australian Consulate?s fence in the dead of night and hand-delivering a personal plea to open the Indonesian province to world scrutiny.

A new academic law and human rights report A slow-motion genocide: Indonesian rule in West Papua (PDF), details the extent of the genocide and abuse of human rights. (Review by Greenleft) Activists have called for Australia to End pragmatic complicity in West Papua in response to comments by new conservative Prime Minister Tony Abbott. Imprisoned Papuan leader Selpius Bobii also responded saying, "We Live In Terror, Mr Abbott".

Civil Society stages mass walkout protest from Warsaw Climate change negotiations

Civil society organisations abandoned the COP19 climate change negotiations in Warsaw on mass. Members from Greenpeace, Oxfam, WWF, Actionaid, Friends of the Earth, the International Trade Union Confederation (statement) and 350.org all started leaving the conference at 2pm. This is an unprecedented action, the first time several major civil society groups have staged a mass walkout.

Friends of the Earth International highlighted that the Warsaw Climate Change negotiations were failing, with Tension high in Warsaw talks as G77+China walk out. The role of Australia and reduced ambition of Japan  have been widely mentioned. Australia and Canada are seen as the major wreckers, but there has been substantial intransigence from much of the developed world to progressing the negotiations forward on finance, ambition, and a loss and damage mechanism. Poland's Coal Summit has shown the fossil fuel corporatism entwined in this COP with widespread dismay at the coal powered negotiations of COP19 and at UNFCCC official Christiania Figueres who gave the keynote speech at the coal summit

Canadians and Australians protest climate wrecking policies and pipelines

The weekend of 16th and 17th November saw tens of thousands of people in Canada and Australia out in the streets in over 260 protests against the climate policies of these countries. Australia and Canada are seen as the major wreckers in Warsaw at COP19.

The Saturday protests in Canada occurred from coast to coast to Repulse Bay, Nunavut on the Arctic circle, more than 10,000 people gathered in over 180 events co-ordinated by Defend our Climate. Many protests focussed on stopping further expansion of the Alberta tar sands and pipelines to move the bitumenous oil south to Texas, east through Ontario and Quebec, and west through British Columbia. On Sunday, more than 60,000 people attended climate protests across Australia, protesting the attempt to repeal carbon pricing and clean energy programs by the conservative Government lead by Prime Minister Tony Abbott, elected on 7 September this year, who denied any link between climate change and bushfires as unusually early and intense bushfires raged around Sydney.

Civil Society NGO and local Polish activists also staged a Climate Justice march in Warsaw in association with the COP19 climate change negotiations taking place. Super Typhoon Haiyan set the initial mood at the negotiations with Philippines negotiator Naderev Saño (Yeb Saño) saying "time to take action. We need an emergency climate pathway". There is widespread dismay at the coal powered negotiations in Warsaw with Japan and Australia being particularly singled out.

Typhoon Haiyan causes death and devastation in the Philippines

On November 8 Super Typhoon Haiyan made landfall over Guiuan, Eastern Sama province in the Philippines, destroying coastal communities with ferocious winds and a storm surge of 6-7 metres (up to 20 feet). According to Dr Jeff Masters "Haiyan had winds of 190 - 195 mph (315 km/h) at landfall, making it the strongest tropical cyclone on record to make landfall in world history."

Authorities of Tacloban City with a population of 220,000 and capital of Leyte province, gave an early estimate that perhaps 10,000 people died from this one city. Many people were surprised by the huge storm surge tidal waves that inundated much of the city. Many smaller coastal villages were also devastated with most buildings destroyed or suffering severe damage. According to the UN Reliefweb report on 14 November the number of affected people has increased to 11.8 million. The official death count from Typhoon Haiyan is currently 4,460 but with numbers still increasing. There were 921,200 people displaced and 243,600 houses destroyed. A total of 2.5 million people are in need of food assistance.
