I am posting these research efforts because many here are very interested and engaged with indigenous people and their efforts.

On academia.edu, many papers published. Here is one from a prof at Mich State

Critical Investigations of Resilience: A Brief Introduction to Indigenous Environmental Studies & Sciences
Kyle Whyte

Abstract: Indigenous peoples are among the most active environmentalists in the world, working through advocacy, educational programs, and research. The emerging field of Indigenous Environmental Studies and Sciences (IESS) is distinctive, investigating social resilience to environmental change through the research lens of how moral relationships are organized in societies. Examples of IESS research across three moral relationships are discussed here: responsibility, spirituality, and justice. IESS develops insights on resilience that can support Indigenous peoples’ struggles with environmental justice and political reconciliation;
makes significant contributions to global discussions about the relationship between human behavior and the environment; and speaks directly to Indigenous liberation as well as justice issues impacting everyone

Indigenous Art against Extractivism in North America. By Aurélie Journée

To start I would like to thank the Committee who organized this event and coordinate this panel. I am really honored to be there. Let me now introduce myself first. My name is Aurélie Journée, I am a PhD candidate in Social Anthropology at the EHESS (in Paris, France) and my dissertation focuson the Women and Queer artistic practices using photography into their process, since the 1970s to now. Today I am going to speak about how Indigenous Arts take an important place in the struggles against extractivism in North America.

According to Anna Bednik, « Several definitions of « extractivism » have been presented by different authors, but the one given by the Uruguayan Eduardo Gudynas, director of the American-Latino Center in Social Ecology (CLAES), is the most used since these last years by the militantand scientific books. According to him, « extractivism » is the mass or intense exploitation of a natural resource (renewable or not) mostly for being exported as a commodity non converted or converted in the less way. Then, mostly, the critics of the extractivism in Latino-America concernthe dependance of the states towards their « exports of the nature » ; the stubbornness of the actual powers to pursue this way ; the unequal exchange and the role of the global capitalism margins inwhich latino-american countries are locked (a role that implies the sacrifice of wide territories inorder to obtain resources dedicated to exports)

her hard core supporters don’t care. It makes me so mad, though, that who knows how many people will have only seen the debate answer and now feel that they can support her. literally flat out, flagrant lying to take voters from Bernie.

Actually, Warren supporters should be the most pissed. Warren was unequivocally for M4A. Harris is competing more in Warren’s lane than Bernie’s

This may have begun with a WaPo article titled “Kamala Harris changes answer on abolishing private health insurance.” Then, I guess, it went viral.

The article does not bear out the message in the headline, but I guess this is pretty normal. While the writing does nothing to substantiate the headline, it does continue the psychological message embedded in the title, namely: You Sanders supporters think you gained an alliance with Harris last night, but Harris is now trying to back out of that solidarity with Sanders.

I was expecting a bloodbath for Sanders at the “debate” but that didn’t happen. Instead Harris “ate Biden’s liver” (hat tip to Naked Cap commenter “Scarn” for the expression). Sanders stayed above the fracas throughout the evening, which was the right thing for him to do.

But Biden just collapsed. He looked like he was going to cry. He became disoriented, lost cogency, the camera showed repeated shots of his face looking tired, confused and, in a word, “too old” (OK that’s 2 words) for the job. At one point, even, he seemed to have trouble hearing the moderators (more on this below*), and had to ask for the question to be repeated, yet another sign that Biden must be an old codger, kinda like Grandpa who gradually receded from reality as the years bore down on him.

Harris’ takedown was the jumping off point for this debacle. I have to say, I watched the whole Harris-Biden episode with horrified delight. Biden-demolishing was not what I expected from Debate #2. Harris sounding, looking and thinking like a young, committed and savvy political expert also was not what I was expecting.

In fact, Harris ate Biden’s liver, not Sanders’.

This morning’s WaPo headling and article are payback to Harris for trying to destroy (and doing a good job of it) the Dem’s favorite son Biden. It’s an anti-Harris hit piece that went viral. If this isn’t fake news, it is misleading news.

(Harris’ policy of M4A / private insurance is very much in keeping with Sanders’s plan with regard to keeping some private insurers, if they want to offer services not covered by M4A.)

So the ?? remains why did she do it. I’m pretty sure she was breaking the Dem rules for this crew of candidates, which stipulated a “gentleman’s agreement” not to make war on one another. So why did she break the rules? She may have had many motives, but I’m guessing that her animus toward Biden stems from the California foreclosure trainwreck brought on by Steve Mnuchin when he was head of OneWest Bank. Harris, IIRC, began to investigage Mnuchin for practicing foreclosure fraud (OneWest carried out 36,000 foreclosures in CA while she was AG.) Apparently before her investigation got under way the White House called her to Washington for a meeting on some pretext. Following this meeting she returned to CA and dropped the Mnuchin investigation.

If anything casts a large shadow on Harris’s current political aspirations, it’s the Mnuchin episode. And, in my view, on that trip to DC it’s likely that she was not pressured by Obama directly to put aside the Mnuchin case. My guess is that Obama’s henchman and bank-defender Joe Biden was the one who put the arm on her. And Harris, loyal to the Party, conformed to the pressure. It seems that her Dem party loyalty is wobbling now.

Personally I’m not too worried about what they call “unity”. I find the Dem Party breakaways more interesting. They’re boarding Sanders’ train now, right?

*On Biden’s apparent difficulty hearing: what was going on with NBC’s botched sound system? For one brief moment Bernie also cupped his ear and appeared not to be able to hear, or understand the question. The moderators, as expected, were doing a terrible job altogether, but the sound system went down in the middle of Debate #1, and then there was difficulty hearing in Debate #2. Well, Biden and Sanders were next to each other in the middle of the lineup; it wouldn’t have taken much tech know-how to screw up the sound feed to that part of the lineup.

End of Rant!

Happy Friday and many thanks to all TPWers!

That’s a sad story. What really got me was the interest the hospital adds on to the debts.

Methodist knew that Barrett was a low-income worker, yet it added interest to her account seven times, in amounts ranging from $46 to $7,340.

Charging that much interest to a low-income patient is “unconscionable,” said Fred Morton, a retired minister of Christ United Methodist Church in East Memphis.

“That’s a 21st-century version of slavery,” said Morton, who serves on the economic justice committee for MICAH, a coalition of community and faith-based organizations. “That kind of indebtedness. … That’s horrible to me.”

Methodist, like its peers, also gets assistance from the state of Tennessee to help offset its costs for providing uncompensated care. In the first three months of 2019, the state gave more than $31 million to qualifying hospitals. Of that, Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare’s hospitals received nearly $5 million, according to a quarterly report submitted to the Tennessee General Assembly.

In 2017, Methodist paid its president and CEO, Dr. Michael Ugwueke, $1.6 million in total compensation. That same year, Gary Shorb, the hospital’s CEO from 2001 to 2016, earned more than $1.2 million for serving as Ugwueke’s adviser. In 2018, the hospital brought in $86 million more than it spent, according to an end-of-year revenue bond disclosure statement.

What was that about the hospital being non-profit again????

Schumer is even worse than Pelosi. Go Pocan. He refused to apologize to those poor reps who had their tender feelings hurt.

https://www.axios.com/what-theyre-saying-progressives-push-back-pelosi-caves-border-bill-62c93a93-8778-4798-8725-cef9a6cac60e.html

The big picture: On Wednesday, after rejecting the House version of the bill, the Senate overwhelmingly passed its package in a bipartisan 84-8 vote. Pelosi jockeyed Thursday morning to add supplemental protections to the bill for migrant children and restrictions for how the Trump administration can use the funds. However, moderate Democrats and members of the bipartisan “Problem Solvers Caucus” threatened to block the vote unless Pelosi put the Senate-passed legislation on the House floor.

What they’re saying:

Progressive Caucus Co-Chair Mark Pocan (D-Wisc.): “Since when did the Problem Solvers Caucus become the Child Abuse Caucus? Wouldn’t they want to at least fight against contractors who run deplorable facilities? Kids are the only ones who could lose today.”

Progressive Caucus Co-Chair Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.): “I am looking for a new pharmaceutical drug that builds spines … Listen, I think leader Schumer and all the Senate Democrats have to understand that we need them to stand up and oppose.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.): “We didn’t even bother to negotiate. There are House amendments, we could have negotiated in, we could have conferenced, we could have tried to get amendments in to get humanitarian provisions put in, to get consequences for facilities that abuse kids in. … We are the House of Representatives and we are a House majority and we need to act like it.”

Rep. Katie Hill (D-Calif.): “Today I voted NO on Mitch McConnell’s border bill. The bill was a rush job that reflects the worst of Washington – exactly what I ran against. I would rather have worked a long weekend and drafted a bill that actually keeps kids safe and reflects our values.”

Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.): “I voted no on the Senate bill. Standing up for human rights requires more than providing money. We gave the Administration $40 million more than they asked in 2019 for supplies. But they still deprived children of diapers & soap. We need a law that clearly outlaws the abuses.”

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.): “We had an opportunity to put forth a humanitarian policy and we wasted that opportunity, and it’s quite sad. And I hope that Americans are as appalled as I am.”

https://jacobinmag.com/2019/06/elizabeth-warren-bernie-sanders-neoliberal/

Characterizing Warren as a “neoliberal” or, even more stupidly, a “Clintonite,” some misguided online Bernie Sanders supporters seem to be trying to cast her as the archvillain in the sequel to 2016’s horror flop, Hillary. With Warren’s advocacy for aggressive government regulation, her support for redistributive programs, her sharp critique of antisocial corporate behavior, and her rejection of individualistic folklore (remember “You didn’t build that”?), she’s emerged as a relatively mild but nevertheless quite serious opponent of neoliberal ideology — the worldview in which markets can solve everything and, in Margaret Thatcher’s words, “There is no such thing as society.”

If Bernie Sanders weren’t running, an Elizabeth Warren presidency would probably be the best-case scenario. Warren is a “good liberal,” a species that nearly went extinct after Jesse Jackson’s 1988 campaign and has only recently been spotted again roaming the savannahs of Washington, DC. Left and socialist organizing has been at least partly responsible for the resurgence of this highly vulnerable political animal; we should claim credit for such creatures, not misclassify them.

However, while Warren isn’t a neoliberal, Sanders supporters aren’t the only ones making shit up. Her own supporters have been spinning a series of fictitious narratives rooted in classic neoliberal identity politics, using feminism and anti-racism to discredit Sanders’s socialist agenda.

There is, of course, nothing inherently neoliberal about opposition to race and gender oppression or struggles for full social rights and inclusion for LGBTQ people, immigrants, the disabled, the indigenous, or any other group. But the term “neoliberal identity politics” refers to the way the politics of identity can be — and often are — abused by those in power, to undermine the very politics of collectivity upon which the liberation of all oppressed groups depends.

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/6/28/18906968/democratic-debate-2019-climate-change

The first two Democratic presidential debates for the 2020 election this week devoted more attention to climate change than in all the 2016 debates combined. But the climate crisis got just 15 minutes across four hours of airtime. And it wasn’t time particularly well spent: The questions were muddled, the discussion was shallow, and most viewers probably didn’t come away better informed.

All of this helps to make activists’ case for why the Democratic National Committee should hold a separate climate change debate. Groups like the Sunrise Movement and Greenpeace have been calling for one and were disappointed with this week’s performances.

jcitybone

The end of the debate was Bernie’s best moments—the closing speech and his calling out Biden on Iraq and Middle East policy.

https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/06/28/rich-will-keep-getting-richer-and-nothing-will-change-says-bernie-sanders-unless-us

Sanders’s closing speech was widely viewed as his strongest moment of the night, and progressives celebrated the senator’s willingness to name the corporate forces invested in upholding a system that has enriched a small slice of the population while leaving most of the public with soaring healthcare costs, stagnant incomes, and a polluted environment.

“Bernie Sanders is right,” tweeted the youth-led Sunrise Movement, which continued its sit-in outside DNC headquarters Thursday night. “Our generation is looking for a president who has the ‘guts to take on the fossil fuel industry.’ We won’t settle for less.”

Waleed Shahid, communications director for progressive advocacy group Justice Democrats, said the core of Sanders’s argument is that “we live in a deeply hierarchical society made up of a powerful few on top who do not want to give up their power.”

“He’s right that only power and a movement of millions coming together can upend our corrupt and rigged system,” Shahid tweeted.

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/450867-sanders-my-views-on-working-with-gop-a-little-bit-different-from-bidens

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) knocked former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday over his comments in their Democratic presidential primary debate about working with Republicans.

During an interview with SiriusXM radio following the Miami debate, Sanders said his views on the issue “differ” from the former Delaware senator’s.

“Well, look, all that I can tell you is, my views are a little bit different. I do work with Republicans when I can. For example, I’m very proud of the fact that for the first time in 45 years, we used the War Powers Act to get a majority vote in the Senate to end the horrible war in Yemen led by Saudi Arabia. So, you work with Republicans when you can,” Sanders said.

“But I think everybody understands that [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell and the Republicans today have evolved into an extreme right wing party. They are intimidated by Donald Trump,” he added.

“They are controlled by big money, and the only way we beat them is by creating the kind — an unprecedented grassroots movement of young people and working people and people who believe in justice.”

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/bernie-sanders-would-call-trump-racist-to-his-face

Sen. Bernie Sanders declared after Thursday night’s debate that he would call President Trump a “racist” right to his face if the two ever met on a similar stage.

In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper after the Democratic presidential debate in Miami, the Vermont senator was asked whether he is “prepared to call [Trump] a racist to his face.”

“Absolutely,” he answered. “Look, it gives me, honestly, no pleasure to say that, I have conservative friends who are certainly not racist. You know, we can disagree in this country.”

Sanders ticked off several actions by Trump that he deemed to be racist, including birther claims against then-President Barack Obama, along with Trump’s “attacks” on immigrants and Muslims.

“If you look at Trump, if you look at Trump’s life, history … yes, sad to say we have a bigot in the White House and that’s exactly what I would say to him,” said Sanders.

polarbear4

What a stupid question! Forced him into a corner, in a way. There’s really no need to attack him face to face, and I hope that Bernie refrains. Honestly, I hope he starts moving away from this always being a part of his speeches.

jcitybone

Actually, I disagree. Trump is a racist and should be called out.

polarbear4

I agree, to a point. But he’s done it so many times now and I’m not sure what calling it to him to his face will do, other than start a fight.

I am open to changing my mind on this, but it feels a little like stooping to his level.

Tyrannocaster

I don’t believe I have ever seen *anyone* call him a racist or bigot to his face. Clinton certainly didn’t. Lots of people do it when Trump’s not there, but that’s cowardly if they feel that way and clam up in the Great Man’s presence. It would be liberating and exhilarating to see Bernie do it, and I hope he can. Trump”s reply would be interesting.

I’m sure she meant “absolute,” not “absence.”

BERNIE’S WORLD
“First of all, I agree completely with Bernie about what the fundamental challenge we’re facing as a country is, 40 years of no economic growth for 90% of the American people…and the worst income inequality that we’ve had in 100 years.” Colorado Senator Michael Bennet, who has framed his campaign in opposition to Sanders’ reform proposals that he scorns as “candy,” acknowledged the force of the Sanders critique. Sanders, like Elizabeth Warren on the first night, was not particularly assertive in the debate. He didn’t interrupt or elbow his way into conversations, and didn’t unleash a memorable one-liner. As always, he stayed relentlessly on message.

Yet Sanders’ ideas now frame the debate in the Democratic Party—an extraordinary victory for progressives. Even Joe Biden now endorses a $15.00 minimum wage, tuition free college, a Green New Deal, and—in reaction to Sanders’ call for Medicare for All—a public option in Obamacare. With Sanders and Warren leading the way, the Democratic candidates are forced to address the glaring, structural inequities and failures of our current system. Biden would prefer a campaign focused on a restoration to normalcy after Trump. But even the moderate Democrats agree there is no going back. Trump is a symptom not a cause, beating him is necessary but not sufficient. As Warren put it, “When you’ve got a government, when you’ve got an economy that does great for those with money and isn’t doing great for everyone else, that is corruption, pure and simple. We need to call it out. We need to attack it head on. And we need to make structural change in our government, in our economy, and in our country. Conservative pundits like David Brooks fret that Democratic populism will leave “moderates homeless.” In fact, the populist energy driving the debate gives whomever emerges with the nomination a far greater chance against Trump.

On the second night, in his remorseless fashion, Sanders used his closing to lay down the marker for every candidate: “Nothing will change unless we have the guts to take on Wall Street, the insurance industry, the pharmaceutical industry, the military-industrial complex and the fossil fuel industry. If we don’t have the guts to take them on, we’ll continue to have plans, we’ll continue to have talk and the rich will get richer and everybody else will be struggling.” As voters try to sort through the Democratic contenders, that is a pretty good standard to measure them by.

https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_5d1623f6e4b07f6ca57c4732/amp

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison endorsed Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ Democratic primary bid in the 2020 election on Friday, arguing that Sanders has the principles and record needed to take on the country’s growing economic and social disparities.

“The most pressing problem of our time is inequality,” Ellison told HuffPost in an interview. “For working-class people, they really can’t thrive and grow in this economy. And Bernie has the best prescriptions now and over the course of time has demonstrated the most consistent commitment to working families.”

Ellison, a former co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, attended the first Democratic presidential primary debates in Miami this week.

Sanders’ influence was evident even on the first night when he was not present, Ellison argued, noting that every candidate had to respond to ideas like single-payer health care and tuition-free public college that Sanders brought into the mainstream with his 2016 presidential run.

There is a clip in the linked article from the Harris-Biden moment. Here is a problem I see with Harris’ statement: She relates a story about a neighbor telling her children they couldn’t play with Harris and her sister because they were black. To spell it out: Harris did not live in a black neighborhood. Was she simply just riding a school bus to school or was she actually part of an integration plan?

I am glad that she exposed Biden’s record on this issue, but her claims regarding her personal experiences may not be accurate. As Tim Black has said Harris has not lived the black experience.

Thursday night’s Democratic debate featuring Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, and eight other candidates was the highest-rated Democratic match-up in Nielsen ratings history.

Final viewership numbers won’t be available until Friday afternoon. But the so-called “overnight” ratings, recording how many households tuned in, showed a 15 to 20 percent increase over Wednesday, which was night one of the two-night event.

I hope that Bernie’s team prepares well for the next debate. Kamala will be coming after him and the gun issue might be one of her choices for weapons. Bernie could’ve handled Maddow better.

Bernie Sanders said debate moderator Rachel Maddow was ‘mischaracterizing’ his words on gun control when she was using a direct quote from him

Here’s more info on what went down last night from Seven Days VT perspective


Sanders Disputes Seven Days Story During Democratic Debate

The quotation came from a March 6, 2013, interview that Seven Days conducted with Sanders in his Capitol Hill office. It was the first time the senator had agreed to speak to the newspaper in the nearly three months since a mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

At the time, Sanders was weighing whether to support federal gun control measures proposed by then-president Barack Obama and vice president Joe Biden. Later in the interview, Sanders said, “If you passed the strongest gun-control legislation tomorrow, I don’t think it will have a profound effect on the tragedies we have seen, which are really tragedy.”

Seven Days included portions of the interview in a March 13, 2013, political column, but did not publish the quotation Maddow read at the debate until this week. That was featured in a cover story documenting Sanders’ complicated relationship with the National Rifle Association and the evolution of his position on gun rights during his decades in public office.

The online version of the story included audio of the interview. You can listen to it here:

A little Friday off-topic thing.

So, is Trump cheering on Rapinoe yet?

“Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team,” Trump tweeted. “Be proud of the Flag that you wear.”

Trump was reacting to a new viral video in which Rapinoe, asked months ago whether she would visit the White House if invited by the president, responded casually: “Pfft. I’m not going to the f—— White House.”

She was the first white athlete to join in NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s ongoing protest over police brutality and other racial inequalities by kneeling during the national anthem in 2016. That was the moment that Rapinoe — an affable, gregarious and witty fan-favorite — managed to become a lightning rod. The player who once memorably celebrated a World Cup goal by running over to a field microphone and belting out “Born in the U.S.A.” by Bruce Springsteen was suddenly being called un-American.
