Congress Believes Everything Is a Disaster and an Emergency Except for the Border Ep 409

In this free-flowing Friday episode, I tie up some loose ends on stories from this week. I explain the multi-layered crisis at the border, specifically the threat of infectious diseases and the cartel operations. The media and the government are not telling us just how serious a threat the termination of Border Patrol checkpoints are in terms of drugs, human smuggling, and potentially terrorists. 

Yet Congress doesn’t consider that to be a problem. The legislature is focusing on emergency and disaster spending for Puerto Rico. I explain why this disaster bill is nonsense and why throwing more money at Puerto Rico without fixing its systemic problems or giving it independence is like flushing money down the toilet.

Finally, I bring you one more example of why we can’t win the judicial game the conventional way and why we must challenge the entire premise of judicial supremacism rather than focus on “appointing better judges.”
The equal right of all citizens to health, education, work, food, security, culture, science, and wellbeing - that is, the same rights we proclaimed when we began our struggle, in addition to those which emerge from our dreams of justice and equality for all inhabitants of our world - is what I wish for all.

It was a casual remark over a lunch of salad, fish and red wine but future historians are likely to parse and ponder every word: "The Cuban model doesn't even work for us any more."
