    “After a day of hobnobbing with billionaires in Davos, President Trump publicly revealed that cuts to earned Medicare and Social Security benefits will be on the table as soon as the end of this year,” said Richard Fiesta, executive director of the Alliance for Retired Americans, in a statement. “The cruel irony of this scene cannot be overstated.”

    “While Davos billionaires may not understand the importance of Social Security and Medicare, millions of Americans who rely on the health and retirement benefits they have earned through a lifetime of hard work do,” added Fiesta. “Social Security and Medicare are vital for a secure retirement. Americans pay the highest prescription drug prices in the world. This burden and affording other basic necessities make it harder for retirees to make ends meet. Cutting Social Security and Medicare would be a cruel disaster.”

        Because if he were innocent, then his advisors could state that for the record and in front of a jury where, if they lied, they could be in major trouble. But, of course, he isn’t innocent so they won’t testify.

    From middle America to big cities, traffickers are embedded, peddling flesh for profit. Human trafficking is the second-most illicit profit-producing business in the world, upwards of $150 billion a year. Business? Yes, it is a business to these criminal enterprises that are trafficking children, women, and men for sex. Trafficking has moved beyond borders to becoming a criminal trade facilitated by domestic actors. According to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, almost two-thirds of trafficking victims originate in the United States. Trafficking is moving beyond international cartel-based organizations to “Everytown, America.”

      “There are several models of trafficking organizations. While there are the cartels and other organized criminal elements engaging in trafficking, there are also small, disaggregated groups trafficking victims in the US. This can be in the form of a gang sanctioned line of business similar to trafficking guns and drugs, it can be a “side hustle” for gang members, it can be a family member trafficking their children or siblings, it can even be an organized ring orchestrated by a doctor.”

        The traffickers are essentially using victims as “rental property,” taking in steady profits from the use of their victim’s body. DeliverFund’s Fullilove said, “While prices vary from locale to locale based on demand and the overall costs in the area as well as what customers are able to afford based on the economic situation in a given area, it is fair to say that victims can be sold for $200-$400 per hour and can be sold upwards of 6-10 times a night. This means that for a single victim, a trafficker can potentially earn between $375,000 and $1.25 million per year.”

          Sex trafficking victims can be as young as children or in early adulthood. Sometimes these victims are continually victimized from their mid-teens to their early 30s. If we look at labor trafficking, the age spread is even greater. There is no common socioeconomic or racial background of victims; they can come from poor or rich households. The only general commonality for sex trafficking victims is there is a history of some form of abuse in their background, whether that is sexual, physical and/or emotional abuse. This is common in ~95% of victims.”

            Victims can be seen in plain sight, screaming on the inside for help but unable to step forward out of fear or conflicting emotions. Trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery happening in all fifty-states and must be addressed by every facet of government, from Congress to City Council. Law enforcement, from state to federal, needs to target the traffickers money and assets to take them out of commission.

Who is and who is not a rightful resident of our national home? Do illegal migrants have a right to come here and stay here?

    Perhaps the greatest manifestation of civil disobedience today is the illegal presence of between 12 million and 20 million immigrants who broke into our country or are breaking the law by being here after their visas expired.
    “Sanctuary cities” have been created where local and state authorities refuse to cooperate with immigration enforcement. Now, towns, cities and counties are creating “Second Amendment sanctuaries,” where laws restricting gun rights will not be enforced. If state and local police, themselves gun owners, stand with those who defy the new state laws on guns, who enforces the new laws?

    Statement for the Record of Senator Charles E. Schumer
    The Trial of the President
    February 11, 1999
    Mr. President, this is a day of solemnity and awe. I rise humbled that we are participating in a process that was mapped out more than 200 years ago by the Founding Fathers and that the words we say today will be looked upon by historians and future Congresses for guidance. That is quite a responsibility.
    I began this process in the House where it degenerated quickly into bitter acrimony. I would like to say to Majority Leader [Trent] Lott and Minority Leader [Tom] Daschle, and to my new colleagues who have wrestled with this case, that I deeply appreciate your fairness and patience and the way this has been handled with such dignity in the Senate.
    Growing up, our country and its government seemed like a mighty oak — strong, rooted, permanent, and grand.
    It has shaken me that we stand at the brink of removing a President — not because of a popular groundswell to remove him and not because of the magnitude of the wrongs he’s committed — but because conditions in late 20th century America has made it possible for a small group of people who hate Bill Clinton and hate his policies to very cleverly and very doggedly exploit the institutions of freedom that we hold dear and almost succeed in undoing him.

    The tinfoil hat wearers, the faction that includes moon-landing deniers and the kind of crackpots William F. Buckley Jr. and Russell Kirk expelled from mainstream conservatism, has set its sights on derailing the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. The Compact is the constitutionally conservative agreement that guarantees 270 electoral votes and the presidency to the candidate who wins the most individual votes across all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Fifteen states and the district have already passed the compact, giving the measure 196 of the 270 Electoral College votes necessary for it to take effect. With momentum for reform building in New Hampshire, one pundit is actually suggesting that the Granite State defy federal law, specifically section 3, title 3 of the U.S. code — a provision in effect since 1887 — to throw a monkey wrench into the final nationwide tally for president. This particularly nutty idea would involve New Hampshire refusing to submit the state’s official vote count until after electors meet to officially determine the new president and vice president in the December following an election. Without a final national popular vote tally, the reasoning goes, the president and vice president could not be legally certified. One can only imagine federal marshals breaking down the door of the N.H. Secretary of State’s office to secure the vote ledger. Why are you so afraid of the United States Constitution?

      Under article 2, section 1, the Framers specifically granted state legislatures the right to allocate their electoral votes in any manner they see fit. The 16 jurisdictions that have passed the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact bill have done so under the full authority of the Constitution. Did the Founders get it wrong? Why are you so afraid of the American people? Why are you so afraid of including and empowering small states and rural states that are all but ignored under the current system? Why are you so afraid of a boost in nationwide voter turnout?
