The Rise Of Boris Johnson, The UK’s New Controversial Prime Minister

Boris Johnson will be the UK’s next prime minister. Known as “BoJo” among his supporters, he’s one of the UK’s most recognizable politicians. He’s a charismatic, and sometimes controversial figure. Johnson started his career in journalism, but was fired from The Times for making up a quote. He was elected as a Member of Parliament in 2001.

————————————————–
#BorisJohnson #PrimeMinister #BusinessInsider

Following is a transcript of the video:

The life and career of Boris Johnson

He attended the elite boarding school Eton College with David Cameron. He studied classical literature, history, and philosophy at Balliol College, Oxford University, and was president of the Oxford Union in 1986.

Boris had a brief career at The Times before getting fired for making up a quote. Politics and journalism run in his family. His brother, Jo Johnson, is also a Conservative politician and former bureau chief at the Financial Times.

Boris was elected as a Member of Parliament in 2001. He was embroiled in a scandal during his early years as a politician and editor. After publishing an article suggesting the city of Liverpool reveled in a “victim status.”

In 2004, Boris lied about having an affair and was fired from his position as Shadow Minister of the Arts. In 2008, he resigned as an MP and was elected as the Mayor of London. 

During this time, he gained quite a reputation. London’s bike-share service unofficially bears his name. They’re known as “Boris Bikes.” He rode a bike with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

In 2012, Boris got stuck on a zipline while promoting the Olympics and made international headlines. He was re-elected as Mayor that same year. 

Despite the repeated gaffes, many people warmed to Boris. Though some incidents come off as clownish, his supporters believe they make him more authentic and relatable than many politicians. But critics called him an inactive mayor, using the position to boost his personal publicity.

When things heated up during the Brexit debate in 2016, Boris said Britain had a “great, great future” outside of the European Union. When US President Barack Obama encouraged Britain to stay in the EU, Boris called him a “part-Kenyan” with hypocritical views. 

After Britain voted to leave the EU and Cameron resigned. Boris was favored to become the next Prime Minister, but he declared that he would not enter the race.

“My chances of being PM are about as good as the chances of finding Elvis on Mars, or my being reincarnated as an olive.”

When Theresa May became Prime Minister, she appointed Johnson as Foreign Secretary. In his new role, he visited many EU countries he previously condemned. And worked to convince the world Brexit wouldn’t mean the UK was walling itself from the world.

He resigned as Foreign Secretary in July 2018 in a rebuke of May’s stance on Brexit. Johnson continued to fight for Brexit. In May 2019, Theresa May announced her resignation after Parliament repeatedly rejected her Brexit deal.

Johnson and Jeremy Hunt were the final candidates to replace her. People doubted Johnson would be the frontrunner, but he received 64% of the vote.

Johnson’s campaign slogan was “Deliver, Unite, Defeat.” He realized it had an unfortunate acronym, so he added an “E” at the end for “energize”.

“Dude, we are going to energize the country, we are going to get Brexit done!”

The Rise Of Boris Johnson, The UK’s New Controversial Prime Minister

Eric Holder Is On A Mission To Make You Care About Gerrymandering (HBO)

Former Attorney General Eric Holder was in South Carolina and Iowa this past week but he insists he is not running for president. He made a joke of it at an event at a Baptist church in Columbia, SC.

“I think I’m the only national Democrat who’s not running for president at this point. So you know I’m unique,” Holder said.

Instead, he’s visiting early primary states to try to inject a very dry topic of gerrymandering, which is the manipulation of political boundaries to aid one party, into the election.

For Holder, this mission has its roots in the 2010 election. That’s the one where the Democrats lost the House, lost seats in the Senate and had almost no influence in the state legislatures that went on to re-district in 2011. In 2017, former president Barack Obama and Holder launched the National Democratic Redistricting Committee to promote a “comprehensive redistricting strategy.”

The fundraising arm of the NDRC raised $2.5 million in 2018 and has donated a lot of that money to state-level candidates and state parties.

Holder said it’s paying off. Last election cycle, five states had ballot initiatives that were designed to make the redistricting process more fair.

Holder is attempting to make sure the two dozen democratic presidential hopefuls connect the dots between gerrymandered districts and their own presidential ambitions.

What Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary Thinks About Trump’s Immigration Policy (HBO)

President Barack Obama’s former homeland security secretary Jeh Johnson would prefer not to be the frequent recipient of President Trump’s praise. But despite his party allegiance and previous employer, the president, his son, and the White House’s official Twitter feed have all recently praised Johnson for telling multiple interviewers that America’s southern border is “truly in a crisis.”
When VICE News’s Michael Moynihan sat down with Johnson to discuss Trump, the politics of immigration, and his tenure overseeing border enforcement, he was quick to point out that the president and his surrogates truncated his quote, leaving out his criticism of administration policies.
“I said that 4000 arrests on our southern border — one hundred thousand in a month — is truly a crisis,” Johnson told VICE News. “I then went on to, in the same interview, prescribe all the things I think should be done to deal with the crisis and what we seem to be doing wrong. The one sentence ‘it is truly a crisis’ went viral.”
Johnson, who began his career in politics interning for Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, a centrist Democrat, acknowledges that his party is lurching to the left — and that the Obama administration’s aggressive immigration policies would get a tougher reception these days.

GONZO: The past is not even past (E9)

GONZO remains in New Orleans and continues chowing down on beignets with journalist, Max Blumenthal, who says that while Donald Trump has, indeed, energized ‘the basket of deplorables,’ his campaign slogan ‘Make America Great Again’ won the election because Hillary did represent the ‘winners’ of globalization post-Nafta and he had intentionally appealed to the ‘losers’ in places like Michigan. They also discuss the proliferation of conspiracy theories as unsurprising when the ordinary people of America are some of the most conspired against people in the world, including, for example, the Tuskegee syphilis experiment on African-American males from 1932 until 1972.

As they reminisce about the GONZO journey encountering ghosts on the trail, Blumenthal notes that Donald Trump is the perfect American ghost who brings all the dark ghosts of our past into one orange skinned, dead fox haired character who has so much energy it’s as if he’s powered by fish filets.

Later in the day, Max visits Dr. Clyde Robertson, director of African and African-American Studies at Southern University in New Orleans, to discuss the problem with our racist past that is not even past. Racism still haunts society and politics today as the nation went from slavery to Jim Crow to the prison industrial complex. They discuss the history of the Black Panthers in the area and the gentrification of the city in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Dr. Robertson also mentions that Barack Obama did not deliver a post-racial society as he kowtowed to special corporate interests instead. Finally, Max and Stacy head out toward Florida, passing through rain storms in Alabama and Mississippi.

What Happens When The President Declares A National Emergency

President Trump declared a national emergency on February 15, 2019. This gives him special powers, which he says will help him fund a wall along the US-Mexico border. The President can declare a national emergency if the nation is “threatened by crisis, exigency, or emergency circumstances,” according to the Congressional Research Service. This would be the 32nd active national emergency in the US, since the National Emergencies Act was enacted in 1976.

Following is a transcript of the video:

President Trump declared a national emergency on February 15, 2019.

Trump: “We’re going to be signing… today… and registering… national emergency… and it’s a great thing to do.”

This gives Trump special powers, which he says will help him fund a wall along the US-Mexico border.

This would be the 32nd active national emergency in the US.

But what is a national emergency and how does it give the President more power?

The National Emergencies Act was enacted in 1976.

It empowers the President to take on special, temporary powers during a crisis.

The President can declare a national emergency if the nation is “threatened by crisis, exigency, or emergency circumstances.”

Declaring a national emergency isn’t limited to military or war situations.

The President must make a formal declaration and specify what authority will be used.

For example, Trump plans to allocate military programming money to fund construction for a border wall.

Once the President declares a national emergency, many legal limits on his authority are lifted.

The President has 136 emergency powers, delegated by Congress…13 of those require a declaration from Congress, but the rest do not require Congressional input.

Some of these powers allow the President to…
Seize property  
Assign military forces abroad
Institute martial law
Restrict travel
And, in a variety of ways, control the lives of American citizens

But there are still limits… Both Congress and the Supreme Court may modify, limit, or revoke the President’s special powers, specifically if they deem his actions unconstitutional.

Trump’s recent national emergency declaration is expected to face major hurdles from Congress and the courts (BI)National emergencies expire after a year, unless the President renews them by notifying Congress.

Congress is also required to meet every six months to review each active state of emergency.

Other presidents who have declared national emergency…

The oldest national emergency still active today was declared by Jimmy Carter in November 1979.

He ordered all government property from Iran to be blocked from entering the US.

In September 2001, George W. Bush declared a national emergency against terrorism after the 9/11 attacks.

This allowed him and succeeding presidents broad military powers.

In April 2015, Barack Obama declared a national emergency to block malicious cyber-threats from entering the US.

What Happens When The President Declares A National Emergency

Pompeo’s speech on US Mideast policy: Does it ring the bell?

The US Secretary of State has lashed out at the Obama administration’s Middle East policies, and has called for a new chapter in fighting extremists. Mike Pompeo also highlighted the main directions of current US policy in the Middle East.

But his speech in Cairo did sometimes echo one Barack Obama made there ten years ago.
