The Intolerance Of The "Tolerant" Left: The End Of Liberal Democracy?

The Intolerance Of The "Tolerant" Left: The End Of Liberal Democracy?

Authored by Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff  via The Gatestone Institute,

We recently witnessed two events that indicated the possible demise of liberal democracy. The implications should frighten supporters of democratic forms of government in which individual rights and freedoms are officially recognized and protected, and the exercise of political power is limited by the rule of law.

The growing intolerance of many "left-wing" groups is apparent in the uproar of the democratic election of the state premier of the German state of Thuringia as well as in the performance of the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, publicly ripping up US President Donald J. Trump's State of the Union address. It was an official document that belongs not to her but to the public, and of which she was merely its custodian.

That does not even start to mention the entire sham "impeachment" of President Trump, in which centuries of accepted due process were thrown in the gutter. The Senate "trial," which probably should have been dismissed from the get-go as the "fruit of the poisonous tree" -- a legal metaphor meaning that if any evidence is found to be tainted or violates a defendant's constitutional rights, whatever "fruit" follows from it must be thrown out. The House, however, like the Inquisition, is allowed make up its own rules, and make them up it did. Another central problem seemed to be that a US president is obligated by law -- under Ukraine (12978) - Treaty on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters, signed in 1998 -- not to hand taxpayer money over to the Ukraine without first checking to see that there is no corruption. Trump did, there was not, case closed. Trump was not only totally acquitted in a show trial that should not have existed in the first place, but his accusers seemed more guilty of what he was accused of -- the non-crimes of "abuse of power" and "obstruction of Congress" -- than he was.

Currently, there is growing concern on both sides of the Atlantic that the ability of many on the political "left" to accept the democratic process and the rights of those with whom one disagrees is becoming increasingly rare. According to Andreas Unterberger, Austria's most widely read political blogger:

"The left exhibits mocking scorn or even aggressive violence. If a relevant part of the population is unwilling to respect democracy and those with dissenting opinions, then the constitutional state will necessarily implode."

Sometimes it seems as if the underlying intention is actually to dismantle democratic norms and replace them with authoritarian ones. The thinking seems to be: If you vote any way other than for what we want, the result is automatically illegitimate and need not be accepted. In the US, this view had been evident in the three-year refusal to accept the election of President Trump by the "wrong" people", as well as a refusal by many last year to accept the vindication of US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in yet another show trial devoid of evidence , and most recently warnings about a refusal to accept President Trump's acquittal. The title of the latest book by the noted defense Attorney Alan M. Dershowitz, Guilt by Accusation, seems to be fast becoming the norm.

In Germany, the media establishment as well as Chancellor Angela Merkel were shocked to the point of demanding the reversal of the vote for the "wrong" premier of the state of Thuringia because the election came as a result of the "wrong" votes, namely those from the Alternative for Germany party (AfD). Baron Bodissey of the blog Gates of Vienna provided background information:

"The FDP (Freie Demokratische Partei, Free Democratic Party) is a relatively minor conservative business-oriented party in Germany. Nowadays it would be described as "classical liberal" if it were in an American context. In last fall's state elections in Thuringia, the FDP just barely surpassed the threshold to seat representatives in the state parliament. The Left (Die Linke) gained the greatest share of the vote, but the constellation of leftist parties did not have enough seats to automatically form a government.

"Since then there has been wheeling and dealing by all parties in an effort to establish a viable coalition. Yesterday came a big surprise: with the support of the CDU (Christlich Demokratische Union, Christian Democratic Union) and the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany), Thomas Kemmerich of the FDP was elected minister president (the equivalent of premier or governor) of the state of Thuringia...

[I]t seemed the cordon sanitaire against the AfD had been breached. Up until now, all across Western Europe the major immigration-critical populist parties had been kept out of government: the Sweden Democrats, the PVV in the Netherlands, Vlaams Belang in Belgium, and the AfD in Germany. Even though those "xenophobic" parties are quite popular, they have yet to obtain a majority of the vote in their respective countries, and the other parties simply agree never to join a coalition with them. Did yesterday's events in Thuringia signal a change?"

Not quite. The cordon shuddered a little bit, but remained intact. It seems the FDP never asked for the support of the AfD, and received it unexpectedly. Mr. Kemmerich and his party were just as appalled by the AfD as [the] leftist parties were. And Mr. Kemmerich announced he would resign his position to force new elections.

Mr. Kemmerich's announcement of resignation came as a result of massive intimidation against his family, his children requiring police protection, and "Antifa" protests outside Thuringia's parliament building. In this context, it is important to note the irony of the political left. The Left Party ("Die Linke"), the successor party of the SED, the Socialist Unity party of the communist German Democratic Republic (DDR), accused the Free Democrats of believing that it was "better to rule with fascists than not to rule at all." Indeed, there are grounds to argue that it is the Left Party, exhibiting the intolerance of fascists as the predecessors of the Left Party, that was responsible for the cold-blooded murder of Germans trying to escape East Berlin by breaching the Berlin Wall. Even more ironic, it was on the 31st anniversary of the execution of 17-year-old Chris Gueffroy, guilty in the eyes of the ruling elite of wanting to leave the DDR, that the German mainstream media began its campaign of hatred against a democratically elected official.

Adding insult to injury, the strategist of the Left Party had the gall openly to insinuate that Mr. Kemmerich was voted into office "by the grace of those who murdered liberals, commoners, leftists and millions more in Buchenwald [concentration camp] and elsewhere." In saying this, the strategist and others used what is currently the most potent weapon in political discourse: the instrumentalization of Nazi crimes as a weapon against political competitors. According to the German political analyst Vera Lengsfeld, politicians and media are employing psychological terror by igniting the "Nazi nuclear bomb" and by suggesting that the election of Mr. Kemmerich occurred thanks to a "Nazi party", namely the AfD. Lengsfeld adds:

"What has taken place in Germany in the past three days can be considered a breach of the dam. Germany is witnessing the gradual erosion of democracy and the rule of law, a process that began in 2015 [during the migrant crisis] and which has become even more visible since and has ended in putsch against democracy.

"Overnight, Germany has turned into an open dictatorship of convictions. Unless true democrats display resistance and firmly defend democracy and the rule of law, it will once again become cold and dark in Germany."

Dushan Wegner, another political commentator, asks whether a country can call itself a democracy if its chancellor demands the annulment of the election and the Free Democrats buckle in the face of disagreement, only because of the election of a state minister with the help of votes of a party behind a cordon sanitaireWegner argues:

"From faraway South Africa, Chancellor Angela Merkel said something very painful and simultaneously very frightening and shocking: 'The election of the state minister was unforgivable and the vote must be reversed.'

"The chancellor openly demands the annulment of a democratic vote, one that she is unhappy about, and politics remains silent. I find it difficult to call those democrats that do not use all democratic and legal means to remove the chancellor from office.

"Germany currently fluctuates between democracy and absolutism thanks to Angela Merkel. Why bother exercising the right to vote when the 'wrong' choice can be annulled by the media and the chancellor through propaganda and veto?

"A Chinese proverb says: 'May you live in interesting times.' Yes, these are interesting times, and yes, it is a curse. What is positive about interesting times is that they force us to define our stance. Do we stand for democracy or for elections until the results suit the ruler?"

Josef Hueber explains in a commentary how in a pseudo-democracy, elections mean voting until the result is "correct." Moreover, it is important to use the right words: the undesirable democratic election is a "political Fukushima", a breach of the dam, a catastrophe. The consequence of elections can be an "undesirable" or unexpected result for one political side; some will be elated, others disappointed. One could argue that this is democracy; this is how it is supposed to be. The understanding of democratic processes was unveiled with what recently transpired in the Thuringian parliament.

The situation in the United States is not much different. Th recent State of Union (SOTU) address demonstrated clearly what the Democrats' view of tolerance and respect for the office of the president looks like. What began with the absence of self-avowed democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Maxine Waters and others ended in Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ripping up a copy of the speech at the end of the State of the Union address delivered by democratically elected President Donald Trump. By doing so, Pelosi disdained all America, not just the president.

Pelosi disdained the president's supporters as well as a black girl who wants nothing more than a choice in education; she disdained the Tuskegee airman honored by the president; she disdained the great economic performance of the country. She acted in a petty and classless manner, unfitting for someone holding one of the highest offices in the United States. When asked by a reporter why she tore up Trump's speech, Pelosi shot back, "Because it was the courteous thing to do considering the alternatives." What are the alternatives, Madam Speaker? The legal scholar Jonathan Turley, who disagreed with some aspects of the SOTU, said:

"She represents the House as an institution — both Republicans and Democrats. Instead, she decided to become little more than a partisan troll from an elevated position. The protests of the Democratic members also reached a new low for the House. Pelosi did not gavel out the protest. She seemed to join it.

"It was the tradition of the House that a speaker must remain in stone-faced neutrality no matter what comes off that podium. The tradition ended last night with one of the more shameful and inglorious moments of the House in its history. Rather than wait until she left the floor, she decided to demonstrate against the President as part of the State of the Union and from the Speaker's chair. That made it a statement not of Pelosi but of the House."

Pelosi's behavior shows a disappointing lack of argumentative abilities. If tolerance is to mean anything, Pelosi and her fellow Democrats should have exhibited just that. Instead, she, as a role model, did the opposite by engaging in petty and irresponsible behavior, followed by days futilely trying to have her outburst scrubbed from social media.

The entire episode fits seamlessly into a series of illiberal actions by the left in recent times. Consider the shutting down of debates on college campuses, thereby restricting freedom of speech. Or the attack on people wearing MAGA (Make America Great Again) hats. The author Kim R. Holmes explains the left's increasing intolerance as follows:

"What we call a 'liberal' today is not historically a liberal at all but a progressive social democrat, someone who clings to the old liberal notion of individual liberty when it is convenient (as in supporting abortion or decrying the 'national security' state), but who more often finds individual liberties and freedom of conscience to be barriers to building the progressive welfare state."

Seldom has the left on both sides of the Atlantic exhibited its increasing intolerance of dissenting opinions in a more concentrated manner than these past weeks. The foundations of liberal democracy are shaking noticeably. We are presently faced with yet more politically-based show trials: of the parliamentarian Geert Wilders in The Netherlands and of Matteo Salvini in Italy. It is up to the population and voters to decide whether liberal democracy is worth fighting for.

Strategically located on the Eastern Atlantic Coast, and blessed with a topography that includes one of the world's largest natural harbors, New York was the preferred port of destination for thousands who chose to migrate to the promise of a prosperous future in the United States.

Driven by circumstances - war in Europe, famines and poverty in the Orient - and by the lure of opulence, immigrants from around the globe flocked to the United states in ships of all descriptions and landed, for most part, in the emerging metropolis that was renamed New York by the British and quickly dubbed Gateway to the New World by one and all.

The five boroughs that make up the metropolis are separated by various waterways. Brooklyn and Queens occupy the western portion of Long Island, while Staten Island and Manhattan are completely on their own land mass and Bronx, to the North, remains attached to the New York State mainland.

Few people are aware of the fact that this throbbing and vibrant city was for a brief period (1789-90), the national capital. By 1797, endless waves of fortune seekers had made New York the largest city in the U.S.

El caso de violación de Harvey Weinstein podría cambiar ley sobre «mala conducta previa»   

Cache   
El veredicto de un jurado de Manhattan en el juicio por agresión sexual del exproductor de Hollywood Harvey Weinstei n podría depender de tres mujeres cuyas acusaciones no formaron parte del caso penal principal. Se espera que las deliberaciones comiencen este martes en el caso de Weinstein, de 67 años, quien se declaró no culpable de agredir sexualmente a la exasistente de producción Mimi Haleyi y de violar a Jessica Mann, una exaspirante a actriz. Durante el juicio de seis semanas, las otras tres mujeres -la diseñadora de vestuario Dawn Dunning, la modelo Tarale Wulff y la actriz Lauren Young- declararon que fueron persuadidas para conocer a Weinstein por razones profesionales y luego fueron manoseadas o violadas. Las tres testificaron sobre los delitos por los que Weinstein fue acusado. Los fiscales llamaron a declarar a las mujeres como testigos para intentar establecer la motivación y un patrón de comportamiento de Weinstein que expertos legales describieron como una evidencia potencialmente poderosa que podría reforzar las afirmaciones de Haleyi y Mann. «El volumen y la cantidad de testigos hacen que sea realmente difícil que prevalezca la defensa», dijo Daniel Hochheiser, un abogado penal defensor de Nueva York y exfiscal del Bronx. La ley de Nueva York habitualmente impide que los fiscales presenten testimonios de «mala conducta previa», ya que generalmente se considera perjudicial para un acusado. «No puedes admitir mala conducta para mostrar que este es el tipo de persona que hace mucho esto, y que probablemente lo hizo en esta ocasión», dijo Deborah Tuerkheimer, una exfiscal de Manhattan que ahora es profesora en Northwestern Law. Una excepción a la ley permitió a los fiscales llamar a Dunning, Wulff y Young para mostrar que Weinstein «tenía una intención particular» o exhibía un patrón «característico» de comportamiento cuando invitaba a mujeres a reunirse y discutir oportunidades profesionales. Bajo la ley del estado de Nueva York, esos testigos se conocen como «Molineux». Arthur Aidala, un abogado de Weinstein, dijo que era «extraordinario que tres testigos Molineux declararan cuando sólo hay dos testigos demandando. Suele ser difícil para los fiscales convencer a un juez que permita un testigo Molineux», agregó en un correo electrónico.
          

The Luxury City is Going Bust   

Cache   

Mike Bloomberg’s vision proved to be a cul de sac. The future gentry liberals want is grim. A new urban paradigm is needed that focuses on core services for regular people.

In a year when two boosters of the “luxury city,” Donald Trump and Michael Bloomberg, are vying to run the whole country, the very model that created their “success” is slowly unraveling. After roughly 20 years of big-city progress, measured by economic growth and demographic progress, the dense urban centers, including New York, are again teetering on the brink of decline.

Long associated with glamour, money and cultural influence, the rise of the luxury city has foundered on the rocks of inequality and, increasingly, diminished upward mobility. Indeed, according to Pew research, the greatest inequality now exists in superstar cities such as San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, and San Jose. Rather than working to create and sustain a middle class, as Jane Jacobs once suggested, by building local economies, these cities have depended on luring both the ultra-rich and the young and ambitious of the global marketplace to secure and enhance their place.

This approach worked somewhat in the first decade of the millennium, as illustrated by a remarkable rise in New York City’s newly listed condo prices over the last decade from $1.15 million to $3.77 million. But the gold rush is fading now, in part due to the decline of globalization which is also weakening the economies of rival global capitals like London and Hong Kong. Today, as The Atlantic recently noted, Manhattan now suffers conditions where “the homeless shelters are full, and the luxury skyscrapers are vacant.”

Even the world’s arguably most influential urbanist, scholar Richard Florida, agrees that the great urban revival is “over.” Since 2010, urban inner rings, including central business districts, accounted for barely 10 percent of population growth in the nation’s 53 largest metropolitan areas. More revealing still, the country’s three largest metropolitan areas — New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago—are now losing population. Since 2012, suburbs and exurbs, which have seven times as many people as the core, are again growing faster. Suburbs are also seeing a strong net movement among educated people, those earning over $75,000 and especially those between the ages of 30 and 44. Far from being dead, as often asserted in the big city media, a new Harvard study shows that over the past 40 years the periphery has increased its lead in terms of wealth and jobs compared to core cities.

The changing dynamics of millennial migration—long held as the secret sauce powering inner-city revivalism—represent perhaps the most ominous sign of things to come. Dense, high-priced cities, the object of endless love from architectural critics like The New York TimesMichael Kimmelman, do still attract many talented young people straight from college, but many don’t stay long, and increasingly are seeking out other, less dense and more affordable places. A recent Brookings study shows that New York now suffers the largest net annual outmigration of post-college millennials (ages 25–34) of any metro area, followed by Los Angeles, Chicago, and San Diego. The biggest gains, outside Seattle, have been concentrated in the central and mountain time zones in places like Austin, Dallas, Houston and Denver.

Immigration flows, long a source of demographic vitality for coastal metropolitan areas, also have been shifting to the interior, as Brookings has noted. From 2010 to 2018, the foreign-born population of Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, Columbus, Charlotte, Nashville and Orlando increased by more than 20 percent, while San Francisco’s foreign-born population grew only 11 percent, and New York 5 percent. Los Angeles suffered a loss of nearly 1 percent. Some immigrants are now heading to unlikely locations such as North Dakota, which experienced foreign-born growth of 115 percent, and South Dakota (58 percent), while states such as Minnesota and Iowa had more than 25 percent growth.

The mounting surplus of luxury housing in America’s great core city is one indicator of a mounting crisis. Manhattan condo prices are now declining and many of the most luxurious new high-rises in New York—including MoMA 520 Park Ave., Central Park Tower, One57 and 100 E. 53rd St tower—are saddling well-heeled investors with potentially huge losses. Half of all the city’s condos built since 2015 lie unsold, as oligarchs, drug lords, celebrities and others lose interest in luxury real estate.

Similar drops in luxury sales can be seen in markets such as Los Angeles, San Francisco and Miami, a process that also can be seen in other major world cities from Sydney and London, to Paris and Hong Kong. For a generation all these places were flooded with mobile capital from the ultra-rich, who invested in elite properties either for investment purposes or as a second, third or fourth residence. Now that cash, much of it from China, is drying up as slower growth, the coronavirus, and trade tensions slow the outflows, causing a drop in values. 

While those luxury projects boosted property values, they did little to address the real needs for the vast majority of urban dwellers. Even at a discount, they will be far too expensive, or often too small, for middle or working families. 

The case that more buildings for billionaires will help make life better for working families, or even millennial tech workers, is something so absurd only a free-market ideologue would believe it. Despite mindless “free market” claims that building more luxury housing is the answer to housing affordability, most housing advocates recognize that these structures do not address urban America’s middle- and working-class needs.

In many cities, the preponderance of such housing has sparked growing opposition. There’s already a movement to restrict landlord rights, including rent control and even permission for squatters to occupy empty homes and condos. These moves may offend economic logic, not to mention owners and investors, but are an inevitable consequence of leaders like Bloomberg pushing the luxury city idea to its breaking point. 

If culture and coolness drove much of the elite migration to cities, so too did the widespread notion that urban centers would dominate the economic future. Cheerleaders for the “new urban renaissance” such as Neil Irwin of the Times, sees these cities as the places with “the best chance of recruiting superstar employees.”

Yet the recent data belies such assertions. As Florida has noted, the bulk of new growth of the “creative class”—the well-educated millennials who sparked the urban renaissance—is “shifting away from superstar cities.” Growth in the migration of such prized workers is now two to three times faster in Salt Lake, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Grand Rapid, Michigan than in regions around New York, Los Angeles, or Washington, D.C. This is true even in San Francisco, where nearly half of all millennial generation described themselves as “likely” to leave the city by the Bay, a dramatic shift from a decade earlier, in large part caused by insanely high housing prices and deteriorating conditions on the streets.

New technologies also make it increasingly easy for companies to work far from the dense megacities, sparking a process that one British writer has described as “Counter-urbanization” in which some of America’s traditional cities are in danger of becoming increasingly “obsolete.” Today much of the big growth, even in tech, is occurring in largely suburban regions. Last year Austin, Salt Lake City, Dallas-Fort Worth and Phoenix, as well as smaller cities like Madison, Wisconsin and Boise, Idaho grew their tech sector as much as twice as quickly as ballyhooed hubs like New York or Los Angeles. There are growing signs that even Silicon Valley is dispersing as evident in Lyft's move of many key operations to Nashville, Uber establishing its second-largest office to Dallas-Fort Worth, and Apple’s construction of its second-largest facility in the suburbs north of Austin

But tech is only a small part of the picture. In the much larger category of professional, technical and scientific services, the big gains are being registered in low density, sprawling places like Salt Lake City, Austin, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Orlando, Jacksonville, Raleigh, Las Vegas and Nashville now enjoy among the highest rates of growth in this critical field. They are now expanding these jobs as much as two times as quickly as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. This does not bode well for office developers in famously high-rise cities, like New York, where office demand is now slumping and the wreckage of We Work could leave a legacy of empty, or discounted, space.

In many ways the promoters of the luxury city unwittingly set the conditions for its own demise. As mayors like Bloomberg pushed their elite vision, focusing on the billionaire class and elite industries, the middle class continued to decamp to more affordable places. With the stabilizing force of middle-class families diminishing, a new urban demographics emerged that has become dominated by singles, hipsters, the very rich and the very poor. This new reality has shifted urban politics from the pro-business corporatism of Bloomberg to the fully woke metropolis of Bill de Blasio with its hostility to business interests, dislike for police and opposition to education reform.

A similar process can be seen in other leading urban centers, including Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle and Los Angeles. Moderate, business oriented political leaders of the past—Bloomberg, Rahm Emmanuel, Richard Riordan—are increasingly losing out to leftist zealots like Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez with their elaborate and often impractical, social justice agendas. These conditions are not often demanded by Texas, Florida or Nevada economic developers. 

This is impacting corporate decision-making, even in companies run by self-described progressives. In Seattle—where many public officials and employees now see the government’s primary mission as the promotion of “social justice” as opposed to serving the basic needs of the public—a far-left dominated City Council is pushing Amazon, which occupies nearly 20 percent of all Class A office space, out of its hometown. The company is now working to relocate some employees to other urban areas, as well as to a massive new building in the suburb of Bellevue.

Under Bloomberg and other “luxury city” mayors, there was a concerted attempt to regain control of the streets from criminals and often unhinged vagrants. Now in some cities, like San Francisco, criminality in the public space is no longer being prosecuted. Particularly impacted has been law enforcement. The new progressive leniency, including perhaps overly expansive bail reform, appears to have encouraged criminals back to the streets of New York and other cities. Both violent and property crimes are on the rise, not only in Gotham but in cities such as Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington.

Rather than enforce basic order, cities swept up in “resistance” to Trump increasingly curry bedlam by all but abolishing penalties for property crimes, allowing people to sleep on the streets, shoot up and even defecate in public. San Francisco is the new role model here. Nancy Pelosi may praise the city by the Bay as “guiding light for progress across America” but the Daily Mail more aptly recently described it as a “dystopian nightmare.” It is a city with more drug addicts than high school students, and so much human waste on its streets that one website has created a “poop map.” Remarkably, San Francisco just elected as district attorney Chesa Boudin, son of unrepentant 1960s left-wing terrorists, on a platform further de-emphasizing criminal prosecution for property crimes and vagrancy.

Similarly in the core cities of Portland and Seattle, lavish investment has accompanied massive homelessness and disorder. In Los Angeles, run by gentry liberal and uber-green Eric Garcetti, the city’s core—filled with overbuilt, overpriced and often vacant apartments—is filled with homeless camps overrun with rats. A UN official last year compared conditions on the city’s Skid Row to those of Syrian refugee camps. 

Equally critical has been the assault on urban education. Charters and screened high schools, critical to retaining middle- and working-class families, are getting steamrolled by teachers’ unions and associated administrators. Increasingly public schools are abandoning both academic and personal discipline, while political indoctrination is replacing the acquisition of skills. The biggest losers here are usually inner-city poor children but the shift also makes cities far less attractive both to middle-class residents and businesses.

The future of the luxury city—the pride of both Trump and Bloomberg—is an extraordinarily limited one, promising to return to the bad old days when the urban centers were largely abandoned except for visitors, the wealthy and people too young to buy a house or start a family. Meanwhile high taxes and regulation, according to a Bloomberg News report, are leading to the flight of billions in capital from cities like New York and Chicago to low-tax locales in places like Florida and Arizona. The luxury city is apparently losing more of its tenants even as the middle and working classes leave. These losses will really hurt when the pension bills come due.

This presents a dangerous prospect for most city residents, or those who might still like to settle there. To stem decline, what is needed is not more luxury construction, or even ever more elaborate cultural or tourist venues, but those essential things that can lure and attract middle class families. These include the basics, like public safety, middle-class jobs and good public schools, that have been given increasingly short shrift, particularly by the ascendant progressive regimes.

A new paradigm is desperately needed.

The Limits of Being “Near Transit”   

Cache   

In a recent paper, David King of Arizona State University, Michael Smart of Rutgers University and Michael Manville of UCLA cited the legendary urbanist Mel Weber on the importance of facilitating sufficient mobility for low-income citizens: “Our central mission is to redress the social inequities thrown up by widespread auto use, and our central task is to invent ways of extending the benefits of auto-like transportation to those who are presently carless.”

This article considers research on the relationship between cars and poverty among low income households and uses examples from the San Francisco and Los Angeles metropolitan areas (which have the fourth and sixth largest count of transit commuters, respectively, in the nation).

Few Living “Near Transit” Use It

Weber’s advice may seem surprising to the general public, which might imagine that transit provides sufficient mobility to low-income citizens. Transportation planning agencies report the percentage of households living “near transit” as an indicator of transit effectiveness, using measures such as a half mile from a transit stop.

For example, Alltransit.cnt.org, ranks the Los Angeles metropolitan transit system as 6th best in the United States, out of 186. Alltransit.cnt.org indicates that 88.8% workers live “near transit” in Los Angeles. Yet, only 5.0% of Los Angeles commuters use transit. This speaks volumes as to the value of being “near transit” (Figure 1). Barely one in 18 commuters living “near transit” considers transit to be good enough to use instead of cars. Indeed, now nearly 97% of Los Angeles commuters have vehicles available, while the share of workers having no auto access dropped by nearly 18% from 2010 to 2018.

Commuting from Low-Income Neighborhoods

The city of San Francisco has the most intensive transit service in California. Yet, three times as many residents with commutes less than 30 minutes choose to travel by car rather than transit. In the city of Los Angeles, much of it built after 1950, when cars took over the heavy lifting of travel, and has a far smaller downtown area. In the City of Angeles residents are 23 times (2,300%) as likely to commute up to 30 minutes by car as by transit.

Even in higher-poverty communities, residents find cars more practical than transit for commuting. East Los Angeles, with frequent light rail service to nearby downtown Los Angeles, residents are 16 times as likely to commute by car as by transit. As distances from downtown get longer, cars become even more practical. For example, in San Francisco’s Bay Point, with its own BART station and frequent service on the Pittsburg line, residents are 161 times as likely to commute by car as by transit. In Los Angeles, Willowbrook, with a light rail station serving both the Green and Blue light rail lines with frequent service, residents are 156 times as likely to commute by car as by transit (Figure 2).

The reality is that “nearness” to transit does not mean that low-income residents have anything resembling automobile mobility. It seems universal auto access in these communities, would lead to less unemployment, less poverty and higher standards of living. This would benefit both lower-income households in particular and the metropolitan economy in general.

Shortest Distance Between a Poor Person and a Job is by Car

The fundamental difficulty is that transit is a corridor (one street) service, while cars access entire areas (for example all jobs within 10-15 miles). Riders can access two or more streets with transfers, but there is little time for transfers within the 30 minute travel time that most automobile commuters experience (Figure 3). Margy Waller of the Progressive Policy Institute (1999) stated the reality: “In most cases, the shortest distance between a poor person and a job is along a line driven in a car.” Indeed for many low-income residents, being “near transit” is near meaningless, because the accessible job opportunities are so limited.

A 2014 study (Driving to Opportunity), led by Rolf Pendall at the Urban Institute associated automobiles with a “positive role” of automobiles in outcomes” for households receiving low-income housing vouchers. Pendall wrote in CityLab, "The importance of automobiles arises not due to the inherent superiority of driving, but because public transit systems in most metropolitan areas are slow, inconvenient, and lack sufficient metropolitan-wide coverage to rival the automobile.”

Lack of Cars Associated with Greater Poverty

In perhaps the most important recent research, King, Smart and Manville found that US households without access to vehicles have a 70% greater chance of being in poverty than those who have access to vehicles. They also found that, generally, not only do households without vehicles have lower incomes, but their incomes rise at a lower rate (Figure 4).

Results were better in New York’s Manhattan, with only a 50% greater chance of poverty for those without cars. However, jobs-rich Manhattan has three times as many jobs as resident workers, so better results are to be expected (it is not just about density). The jobs to worker ratio of Manhattan cannot be replicated in a genuine labor market (a metropolitan area), which by definition has just one job per resident worker.

Toward a People Oriented Perspective

These kinds of analyses have generally been largely ignored by policy makers, or even criticized.

For example, Angie Schmitt of Streetsblog USA criticized Pendall for making “the case that ‘access to cars’ should be a higher priority for policy makers in the fight against poverty.” She suggested that Pendall and Washington Post reporter Emily Badger (who wrote positively about the conclusions) had implied that “transit advocates are somehow working at cross-purposes with the needs of low-income people”.

Genuine poverty reduction measures are demonstrated by results — intentions and rhetoric are irrelevant. Low-income households should not be held back from opportunity and better lives by the structural inability of conventional transit to provide sufficient mobility. Their need for mobility is immediate, in contrast to long term transportation plans that rarely anticipate significant employment access improvements.

King, Stanley and Manville make a compelling case: “One objection to the goal of universal auto access is that driving carries serious externalities, so planning and social policy should promote less rather than more of it. By that logic, however, society should also not help lower-income households access electricity or heating fuel. Burning fossil fuels to heat and power households generates greenhouse gas emissions that rival or exceed those from cars. Yet we do not deny heat and power to the poor in the name of sustainability.”

Technology: The Ultimate Solution?

Obviously the ultimate solution is door-to-door access, which could become practical with the emergence of automated cars. This could provide transit with unparalleled opportunities for matching low-income workers with far more jobs. If some of the more optimistic cost projections are realized, many more may be able to pay for their own cars, and no longer need subsidies at all.

Esse é um dos processos judiciais mais comentados nos EUA nos últimos anos. Harvey Weinstein, um dos homens mais poderosos de Hollywood, enfrenta cinco acusações que incluem estupro e outros crimes sexuais em Nova York.

Um júri de sete homens e cinco mulheres precisa decidir por unanimidade se Weinstein é culpado das acusações feitas por duas mulheres.

O caso está sendo considerado pelos especialistas em mídia e direito como um momento crucial no movimento #MeToo — a repreensão global ao assédio contra mulheres que se tornou viral graças às primeiras acusações contra Weinstein, em 2017.

Mais de 80 mulheres falaram publicamente contra ele, incluindo celebridades.

Aqui estão algumas perguntas para entender um pouco mais sobre o caso.

Quem é Harvey Weinstein?

O produtor de cinema, hoje com 67 anos, é cofundador da empresa de entretenimento Miramax, que desafiou o domínio dos grandes estúdios de Hollywood e ganhou espaço próprio.

Weinstein e o irmão Bob estão por trás de uma série de filmes de sucesso nos anos 90, incluindo Sexo, Mentiras e Videotape, Traídos pelo Desejo, Pulp Fiction e Shakespeare Apaixonado — este último ganhou sete estatuetas do Oscar em 1999, incluindo o prêmio de melhor filme.

Sua influência na indústria cinematográfica pode ser exemplificada por um estudo que analisou os discursos de aceitação do Oscar.

Em 2015, o estudo constatou que Weinstein já havia sido citado ou elogiado em 25 discursos — tantas vezes quanto Deus —, perdendo apenas para o renomado diretor e produtor Steven Spielberg.

Quais são as acusações contra ele?

As primeiras declarações contra Weinstein surgiram em outubro de 2017.

O jornal The New York Times e a revista The New Yorker publicaram reportagens nas quais dezenas de mulheres acusavam o magnata de ter cometido crimes sexuais.

As atrizes Rose McGowan e Ashley Judd estão entre as mulheres que se apresentaram publicamente para relatar o assédio de Weinstein.

Entre as acusações, as mulheres alegaram que Weinstein obrigava as mulheres a massageá-lo e a vê-lo nu. Ele também prometia ajudá-las a alavancar suas carreiras em troca de "favores sexuais".

Isso desencadeou uma série de outras acusações, incluindo algumas de pessoas muito famosas de Hollywood, como Angelina Jolie e Gwyneth Paltrow.

As acusações também envolviam funcionárias como a ex-assistente de escritório de Weinstein, Lisa Rose.

Sobre o que é o julgamento de Nova York?

No processo que está em julgamento atualmente, Weinstein é acusado por duas mulheres, Jessica Mann e Mimi Haleyi.

Mann, uma ex-atriz, afirmou que o produtor a estuprou em um quarto de hotel em Manhattan, em 2013.

Haleyi, que trabalhou como assistente de produção, disse que Weinstein a forçou a fazer sexo oral nele em seu apartamento em Manhattan, em 2006.

A defesa de Weinstein aponta que as duas mulheres mantiveram amizade com ele após os supostos assédios.

Os advogados chamaram várias testemunhas para tentar demonstrar que os relacionamentos eram consensuais.

Os promotores, no entanto, retrataram o magnata de Hollywood como alguém que atacava mulheres com dificuldades financeiras ou que buscavam oportunidades de emprego na indústria cinematográfica.

"O poder que ele explorou não era apenas físico. Também era profissional e profundamente psicológico", disse Meghan Hast, uma das promotoras, em comunicado lido na abertura no julgamento.

Weinstein nega que houve "sexo não consensual".

Ele fez um pedido de desculpas em 5 de outubro de 2017, no qual reconheceu "ter causado muita dor" — mas ainda contestava as acusações.

No julgamento de Nova York, a equipe de defesa disse que a promotoria "não conseguiu argumentar sem deixar dúvida".

Weinstein apareceu no julgamento com um aspecto frágil e usando um andador para caminhar por causa de uma cirurgia nas costas.

A reputação dele foi afetada?

A mulher do produtor, Georgina Chapman, anunciou em outubro de 2017 que o deixaria.

Nesse mesmo mês, os membros da Academia de Artes e Ciências Cinematográficas, a organização por trás do Oscar, votaram pela expulsão de Weinstein.

Ele também foi demitido da Weinstein Company, empresa que ele e seu irmão fundaram em 2005 após deixar a Miramax.

No entanto, o escândalo ainda atingiu fortemente a empresa, que pediu falência em março de 2018.

Essa é a única vez em que Weinstein irá a julgamento?

É improvável. Promotores de Los Angeles anunciaram acusações criminais contra o magnata de Hollywood em 6 de janeiro.

As acusações variam de estupro a assédio.

Uma das acusadoras do caso de Los Angeles, a modelo e atriz Lauren Marie Young, testemunhou no julgamento de Nova York.

Ela alegou que Weinstein tirou a roupa, tirou o vestido dela e agarrou seu peito em um banheiro de hotel da Califórnia em 2013 — enquanto dizia que aquilo era "como as coisas funcionam em Hollywood".

O caso deve ser levado adiante quando o julgamento em Nova York terminar.

O produtor também enfrenta vários processos civis de dezenas de acusadores.

Em dezembro do ano passado, foi anunciado que Weinstein havia chegado a um acordo provisório de US$ 25 milhões (cerca de R$ 109 milhões) com 30 mulheres que o acusaram de má conduta sexual — desde então, no entanto, pelo menos quatro delas desistiram do acordo, e não está claro o que vai acontecer com ele.

Por que essas acusações têm a ver com o movimento #MeToo?

Existente desde 2006, movimento #MeToo se tornou viral após as acusações contra Weinstein virem a público (Foto: Getty Images via BBC News)

 

O termo surgiu online no início de 2006, quando foi usado em redes sociais pela sobrevivente e ativista norte-americana Tarana Burke.

Mas tornou-se viral — e global — após o escândalo de Weinstein.

Ativistas e especialistas em direito também veem o julgamento do produtor como um teste para o movimento, e não apenas para casos de celebridades.

Há um interesse especial em ver como o júri agiria diante da falta de evidências forenses físicas e também se o testemunho de mulheres poderia ser suficiente para fazer alguém ser considerado culpado por crimes sexuais.

Trump goes on clemency spree   

Cache   
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump went on a clemency blitz Tuesday, commuting former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s 14-year prison sentence and pardoning former New York City police commissioner Bernie Kerik, among a long list of others.

Those who got a break from Trump include financier Michael Milken, the “junk bond king” who served two years in prison in the early 1990s after pleading guilty to violating U.S. securities laws, and Edward DeBartolo Jr., the former San Francisco 49ers owner convicted in a gambling fraud scandal after building one of the most successful NFL teams in history. But Trump also commuted the sentences of several women with more sympathetic cases to balance out the men convicted of corruption.

In all, Trump took clemency actions related to 11 people, his latest interventions in the justice system as he faces growing criticism for weighing in on the cases of former aides. Trump made clear that he saw similarities between efforts to investigate his own conduct and those that took down Blagojevich.

“It was a prosecution by the same people – Comey, Fitzpatrick, the same group,” Trump told reporters. He was referring to Patrick Fitzgerald, the former U.S. attorney who prosecuted Blagojevich and now represents former FBI Director James Comey, whom Trump fired from the agency in May 2017. Comey was working in the private sector during the Blagojevich investigation and indictment.

The clemency actions come as an emboldened Trump continues to test the limits of his office now that impeachment is over. The actions drew alarm from Democratic Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. of New Jersey, who accused Trump of using his unfettered pardon power “to shield unrepentant felons, racists and corrupt scoundrels.”

Blagojevich was convicted on charges of political corruption, including seeking to sell an appointment to former President Barack Obama’s old Senate seat and trying to shake down a children’s hospital.

But Trump said the former governor had been subjected to a “ridiculous sentence” that didn’t fit his crimes.

“That was a tremendously powerful, ridiculous sentence, in my opinion and in the opinion of many others,” he said.

Trump confirmed the pardons on an air base tarmac as he left Washington for a West Coast visit. He said he had yet to think about pardoning his longtime confidant Roger Stone, who is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday, or granting clemency to several former aides who have ended up in legal jeopardy, including his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and disgraced former national security adviser Mike Flynn.

But he made clear anew that he is sympathetic to their cases. “Somebody has to stick up for the people,” Trump said. As for Stone, in particular, he added: “You’re going to see what happens. I think he’s treated unfairly.”

Former Manhattan Assistant U.S. Attorney Mimi Rocah said the pardons sends a message that corruption is OK and “signal to his friends who are facing investigations or prosecutions for white collar crimes ... that Trump has their back.”

Indeed, Pascrell predicted that, following Trump’s acquittal by the Republican-controlled Senate, “outrageous abuses like these will accelerate and worsen.”

Many of the pardons announced Tuesday were advocated by well-heeled friends of the president, including Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire casino magnate, Tom Barrack, a longtime Trump confidant and the chairman of his inaugural committee, and Fox News personality Maria Bartiromo.

Milken’s advocates, for example, included all of the above – along with Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney. It was Giuliani who charged Milken with 98 felony counts, including racketeering, insider trading and securities fraud, when he served as the top federal prosecutor in New York City in 1989.

“He paid a big price, paid a very tough price,” Trump said of Milken, who was among a small group of GOP mega donors who spent Election Night 2018 at the White House, according to media reports.

Blagojevich’s case had been championed by his wife, Patti, who went on a media blitz in 2018. Appearing on Trump favorite Fox News, she encouraged him to step in, likening the investigation of her husband to special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

And relatives of Paul Pogue, the owner of a construction company found guilty of underpaying his taxes, whom Trump also pardoned, have donated large sums to Trump’s reelection campaign.

But Trump also commuted the sentences of several women more representative of the flood of requests that presidents typically receive.

Judith Negron, 48, had been serving 35 years at a Florida prison for health care fraud, conspiracy and money laundering when she was released Tuesday.

“It’s hard to put in words. I’m so excited. I yelled, screamed and cried. We are just filled with happiness and gratitude,” said Yamilla Cruz Estrada, Negron’s sister, thanking Trump for answering the family’s prayers.

“I’m indebted to him for the rest of my life because he gave me my family back,” Judith’s husband, Hector Negron, told The Associated Press.

Her case, like several others, had been championed by criminal justice reform advocates like Alice Marie Johnson, whose life sentence Trump commuted in 2018 at the urging of reality TV star Kim Kardashian West and whose story Trump’s reelection campaign featured in a recent Super Bowl ad.

Johnson told the AP that the president had been looking specifically for female candidates, and asked her for a list of other women who deserved clemency during a criminal justice conference at historically black Benedict College.

“Kim made a difference going to the White House fighting for me, so if I can fight for something I definitely wasn’t going to turn that opportunity down,” Johnson said.

Holly Harris, president of the criminal justice group Justice Action Network, applauded Trump “for taking these steps,” but said she hoped to see him use his power to help “any of the thousands of deserving individuals who are neither rich, nor famous, nor connected” and “every bit as deserving of a second chance.”

Ohio Pastor Darrell Scott, who had advocated for DeBartolo Jr.’s pardon and announced Trump’s decision Tuesday surrounded by a handful of football greats, said that when he first brought the case to the White House, the administration was consumed with other matters, including the Mueller investigation. Now that impeachment is over, he said, Trump has time to focus on other matters.

“We finally get to breathe for the first time before something else comes,” he said. “I think they’re trying to play catch up.”

"The Rise of Big Science in Physics" One-Day Conference   

Cache   
Event date: 

The early roots of Big Science, especially in physics, might be traced back to the Great War, which saw the development of aviation science and sonar.

Subsequently the Second World War hinged on the development of radar and, most famously, on the Manhattan Project's development of the atomic bomb, which is widely considered to be the advent of the Big Science era.

Following the end of the Second World War, globalisation has led modern science with the foundation of international laboratories such as CERN in Switzerland and later LIGO in the USA as well as many international collaborations led by NASA and other Big Science organisations worldwide.

This conference will review the rise of Big Science in physics across the decades and consider its future trajectory.

¿Culpable o inocente? El jurado decide la suerte de Harvey Weinstein   

Cache   

Los 12 jurados que tienen en sus manos el destino del extitán de Hollywood Harvey Weinstein comenzaron a discutir su veredicto este martes, tras cuatro semanas de un juicio clave para el movimiento #MeToo.

El famoso productor de cine cuyas películas ganaron 80 premios Óscar es acusado por la fiscalía del estado de Nueva York de ser un depredador sexual, de agresión sexual y violación. Si es hallado culpable de los cinco cargos que enfrenta puede ser sentenciado a una pena máxima de cadena perpetua.

El martes el acusado de 67 años llegó al tribunal vistiendo un traje gris claro y corbata celeste. Como muchas otras veces, caminaba encorvado, con la ayuda de un andador. Weinstein asegura que sufre de la espalda tras un accidente de automóvil en agosto, por el cual fue operado antes del inicio del proceso el 22 de enero.

“La fiscalía tiene la tarea de probar que el acusado es culpable de todos los cargos más allá de toda duda razonable. Si fracasa en probarlo, ustedes deben declarar al acusado no culpable”, dijo el juez James Burke al jurado, justo antes del inicio de las deliberaciones.

Pero antes, la fiscal Joan Illuzzi-Orbon se quejó ante el juez de una columna de la abogada jefa de la defensa, Donna Rotunno, publicada en Newsweek y en la cual, según Illuzzi-Orbon, “se dirige al jurado”.

La fiscal pidió al magistrado que dé instrucciones a los responsables del veredicto para que ignoren ese texto.

Rotunno replicó que la columna “se dirige al sistema judicial como un todo”. El juez le advirtió que sea más cauta sobre “los tentáculos de sus colosales relaciones públicas”.

Weinstein ha sido denunciado por acoso, agresión sexual o violación por más de 80 mujeres desde que estalló el escándalo en octubre de 2017, génesis del movimiento #MeToo.

Pero solo es juzgado en la corte penal estatal de Manhattan por dos casos: la presunta agresión sexual contra la exasistente de producción Mimi Haleyi, que le acusa de haberle practicado sexo oral contra su voluntad en 2006, y la supuesta violación de la exactriz Jessica Mann en marzo de 2013. La mayoría de los otros delitos han prescrito.

El productor de “Pulp Fiction” y “Shakespeare in Love” es el primer hombre acusado de agresión sexual en el marco del #MeToo que es juzgado penalmente.

- El consentimiento, un tema clave -

El caso, no obstante, es complicado y la fiscalía ha enfrentado dificultades para demostrar ante el jurado que el acusado es culpable más allá de toda duda razonable.

La fiscalía asegura que Weinstein se aprovechó de su inmenso poder en la industria del cine para agredir sexualmente durante años a aspirantes a actriz y empleadas del sector.

Pero la defensa mostró al jurado decenas de correos electrónicos que demuestran que ambas acusadoras mantuvieron durante años relaciones cariñosas con el productor de cine después de las supuestas agresiones, incluidas relaciones sexuales consentidas.

La fiscal aseguró el viernes al jurado que las acusadoras no tienen “ninguna razón para mentir”.

“¿Por qué someterse a todo este estrés” de venir a atestiguar si no están diciendo la verdad?, preguntó. “Sacrificaron su dignidad, su intimidad, su calma con la esperanza de hacer escuchar su voz”.

Rotunno, por su lado, dijo que las acusadoras manipularon a Weinstein para avanzar en sus carreras, y urgió al jurado a que tenga “la valentía” de tomar una decisión que admitió es “impopular”: absolver a su cliente.

- Veredicto unánime -

Al final, todo dependerá de si los siete hombres y cinco mujeres del jurado creen o no a las dos acusadoras y a las cuatro mujeres que declararon como testigos y relataron cómo fueron agredidas por Weinstein, entre ellas la actriz de “Los Soprano” Annabella Sciorra, que contó su presunta violación a manos del acusado.

Los jurados deben alcanzar un veredicto de forma unánime para cada uno de los cargos.

Si no lo logran, el juez puede verse obligado a declarar el juicio nulo. Es posible también que haya un veredicto mixto: que sea hallado culpable de algunos cargos y absuelto de otros.

Si es hallado culpable, el juez decidirá la sentencia en unos meses.

Weinstein enfrenta de manera paralela una investigación por delitos sexuales en Los Ángeles y también es blanco de varias demandas civiles.

A surprise big spender funds attack campaign mailers in key L.A. school board races

The barrage of campaign mail flooding voters in a Los Angeles school board race includes images of a child holding what appears to be a gun, with the message that school board member Jackie Goldberg is responsible for putting children at risk from gun-related violence.
The multiple mailings that Goldberg calls “pieces of lies” also suggest that she is responsible for the notorious sexual misconduct at Miramonte Elementary that came to light in 2012, and that she doesn’t care about Latino children.
“I’ve never before in my life been attacked with vicious lies like this,” said Goldberg, 75, who first served on the school board in the 1980s before being elected to the L.A. City Council and state Assembly.
Goldberg, who is running for reelection in the March 3 primary, finds herself in the crosshairs of Bill Bloomfield, a wealthy, retired businessman from Manhattan Beach, who has spent close to $2 million so far in two L.A. school board campaigns.
In Goldberg’s District 5, which stretches from neighborhoods north and east of downtown to the cities of southeast L.A. County, he has spent more than $1 million through Monday’s reported totals. In District 7 — the South L.A.-Harbor seat held by termed-out Board President Richard Vladovic — Bloomfield has so far spent nearly CONTINUE READING: A surprise big spender funds attack campaign mailers in key L.A. school board races - Los Angeles Times
