Pelosi hits back at Trump over coronavirus response: “Not a time for name-calling or playing politics”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi fired back at President Trump on Thursday after he called her “incompetent,” urging bipartisanship before calling his administration’s response to the coronavirus outbreak “opaque and often chaotic.”

“Lives are at stake,” Pelosi said during her weekly press conference. “This is not a time for name-calling or playing politics.”

The California Democrat said she and her fellow Democrats are working with Republicans to reach agreement on emergency funding to combat the spread of the deadly virus, which countries are racing to contain.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called for $8.5 billion in emergency funding Wednesday, while the White House outlined a $2.5 billion plan Monday that includes $1.25 billion in new funds. Mr. Trump, however, told reporters at the White House on Wednesday his administration would spend “whatever’s appropriate” to adequately fight the coronavirus outbreak.

Any emergency funding package approved by Congress must include entirely new money,

The Politics of the Police – Robert Reiner

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 2000 – Law279 pages

This third edition of the popular and highly acclaimed text, The Politics of the Police, has been completely revised and updated to take account of recent and profound changes in the law, policy and organisation of policing. The Police and Magistrates Courts Act 1994, the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, the Police Act 1996 and the Public Order Bill have all had a major impact on policing in the UK during this period. The social and political context has also changed dramatically – not least with the election of a Labour government after 18 years of Conservative rule. All these factors have lead to a profound shift in the nature of policing. The author has retained the book’s three-fold structure, covering the history of the police, the sociology of policing and the law and politics of the police.

Napoleon: Politics in Napoleon’s Time

France
under the rule of Bourbon King Louis XVI was the envy of Europe.
During his reign beginning in 1774, France had more people
and wealth than any another nation on the continent. From
his glittering palace of Versailles, Louis XVI and his wife
Marie Antoinette pilfered France’s resources while their
people suffered.

Across
the Atlantic in America, Great Britain’s thirteen colonies
declared their independence from the rule of King George III
on July 4, 1776. France, seizing the opportunity to regain
colonies lost to the English, entered the war and helped secure
American independence.

Thomas
Jefferson drew upon the ideas of the Enlightenment —
the rationalist, liberal, and humanitarian trend in 18th-century
thought — in defining the rights and privileges of citizens
in the Constitution of the United States. Similar ideas had
planted firm roots in Europe. Enlightened despots such as
Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II, Catherine II of

Cows Explain Politics

Cows, Geopolitics, and Big Business

Confused about the difference between socialism, Communism, and the politics
of huge corporations? This basic “dictionary” may help.

Feudalism: You have two cows. The lord of the manor takes some of the
milk. And all the cream.

Pure
Socialism:
You have two cows. The government takes them and puts them in
a barn with everyone else’s cows. You have to take care of all the cows. The
government gives you as much milk as you need.

Socialism: You have two cows. The government takes one of your cows
and gives it to your neighbor. You’re both forced to join a cooperative where
you have to teach your neighbor how to take care of his cow.

Bureaucratic Socialism: You have two cows. The government takes them
and puts them in a barn with everyone else’s cows. They are cared for by ex-chicken
farmers. You have to
