Left-wing activists have forced Mastercard to hold a shareholder vote on the creation of a “human rights committee” that would monitor payments to the “far right,” with a view to cut off disfavored individuals and political groups from receiving money from supporters. BuzzFeed reports that the proposed Mastercard human rights committee would “stop designated white supremacist groups and anti-Islam activists, such as Tommy Robinson, from getting access to money sent from donors using the company’s card payment services.” The Board of Mastercard has opposed the proposal, urging stockholders to vote against it. The proposal was submitted for a vote at Mastercard’s upcoming meeting of stockholders on June 25, 2019. The proposal was submitted by left-wing advocacy organization SumOfUs, whose board members are linked to Color of Change, a group that has been pressuring banks, payment processors, and credit card companies to cut off service to right-wingers, Islam critics, and … [Read more...] about Financial Blacklisting: Activists Pressure Mastercard Stockholders to Censor ‘Far Right’
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Aurora experienced its largest COVID-19 outbreak to date when 97 migrants who were moved last month to the detention center from the southern border were found to be infected with the virus , raising questions about testing and migrant transfers during a pandemic. The COVID-positive cases were found in a group of more than 200 migrants who were transferred to Aurora during the second half of April from detention facilities along the border, ICE spokeswoman Alethea Smock said. The bulk of those detainees, she said, came from U.S. Customs and Border Protection facilities where, according to news reports, coronavirus testing has been compromised by the sheer number of people crossing the border. The New York Times reported that the more than 170,000 migrants apprehended in March were the most in any month in at least 15 years. Both Democratic U.S. Rep. Jason Crow of Aurora and Aurora Mayor Mike Coffman are calling on the … [Read more...] about Nearly 100 COVID-infected migrants transferred to Aurora ICE facility amid surge in border crossings
What he does in the shadows. Photo: Sarah Silbiger/Bloomberg via Getty Images Less voluble, less gaffe-prone, more focused: In many ways, President Biden has been a very different political figure than the Joe Biden America has been familiar with for decades. I spoke with national correspondent Gabriel Debenedetti about Biden’s so-far successful communications strategy, and whether it can last. Ben : Our colleague Jonathan Chait wrote this of Joe Biden recently: “Biden’s advantage is that he’s not just nice; he’s also tedious. He is relentlessly enacting an ambitious domestic agenda … while arousing hardly any controversy. There’s nothing in Biden’s vanilla-ice-cream bromides for his critics to hook on to. Republicans can’t stop Biden because he is boring them to death.” This is true. It’s also true that, right now, many Republicans don’t even seem interested in going after Biden, or his policies. Instead, they’re focused on shoehorning whatever grievances they have … [Read more...] about Can Biden’s Low-Key Strategy Work Forever?
A handful of Lovelanders paid a visit to the Monday night meeting of the Police Citizen Advisory Board to air concerns about the arrest of Karen Garner and call on police chief Bob Ticer to step down. While four or five spoke out of a crowd of visitors that, according to attendees, numbered between 12 and 15 people, chair Pat Kistler said as he later reflected on the meeting that the board “had one or two guests over the years, but never that many.” Members of the board advise the Loveland City Council and police department on matters of messaging and policy. They do not have a hand in disciplining police officers. But that didn’t stop citizens from directing their concerns and demands for accountability at board members and council liaisons Steve Olson and Don Overcash, in addition to Ticer. At least one Denver-area television crew also showed up to the Loveland Police & Courts Building to film the meeting. Bill Jensen was among those who spoke Monday. He said he … [Read more...] about Citizens speak up about Karen Garner case at meeting of Loveland’s Police Citizen Advisory Board
