Why Alberta voted on changing the Constitution

On Monday, Albertans headed to the ballot box to cast their votes on a number of things: municipal leaders, the merits of daylight savings and whether the country should get rid of the mention of equalization from the Constitution Act of 1982. But there's a problem with that last one: Alberta alone can't actually make any changes to the country's Constitution.So what was the point of this referendum? Globe columnist and reporter Kelly Cryderman thinks this was more about politics than policy and says that this vote couldn't have happened at a worst time for people, like Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, who want to see Ottawa renegotiate the equalization program.

Over 30,000 people work for the federal judiciary, a system that the public relies on for redressing sexual and workplace harassment. And yet, those 30,000 employees go to work each and every day without the protection of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, and national origin. Now, some employees are taking the federal judiciary to court for sexual harassment in the workplace. Ashley Erickson talks with Ally Coll and Deeva Shah about this litigation and the reforms needed to protect the employees who keep our courts running. ----------------- Join the Progressive Legal Movement Today: ACSLaw.org Today's Host: Ashley Erickson, ACS Director of Network Advancement Guest: Ally Coll, President and Co-Founder of The Purple Campaign Guest: Deeva Shah, Associate at Keker, Van Nest & Peters Link: Brief of Amici Curiae Legal Momentum, National Women's Law Center, The Purple Campaign, and 32 Additional Organizations in Support of Plaintiff -Appellant Link: Brief of Amici Curiae for Named and Unnamed Current and Former Employees of the Federal Judiciary Who Were subject to or Witnessed Misconduct as Amici Curiae in Support of Appellant Jane Roe Link: Brief of Amici Curiae Aziz Huq and Erwin Chemerinsky in Support of Appellant, regarding the doctrine of sovereign immunity.

There are few periods of U.S. history that are as vigorously debated, as emotionally and civically charged as the American Revolution. And for good reason: How Americans interpret that period — its heroes, its villains, its legacy — shapes how we understand our social foundations, our national identity, our shared political project.Woody Holton is a historian at the University of South Carolina, a leading scholar of America's founding and the author of numerous books on the period, including, most recently, “Liberty Is Sweet: The Hidden History of the American Revolution.”Holton's work presents a fundamental challenge to the version of the American Revolution that most of us were taught in grade school. In his telling, America's “founding fathers” were far less central to the country's founding than we imagine. Class conflict was just as important a cause of the Revolution as aspirational ideals, if not more. And the way Holton sees things, the American Constitution was a fundamentally capitalist document designed to rein in democracy, not expand it.But Holton's work shouldn't be understood solely as a revisionist account of a particular era in history. It also provides a unique lens for rethinking some of the defining features of our present — the disconnect between the kinds of policies that democratic majorities support and what our systems of government enable, the fervor to which we cling to national heroes like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, the enduring challenges of governing a fractious, deeply divided society, the complex relationship between material interests and ideology and much more.Mentioned“Rhetoric and Reality in the American Revolution” by Gordon S.

Richard Maybury and Dr. Roger Moss return. When President Eisenhower was leaving the Presidency, he warned Americans of the emerging “military industrial complex” (MIC) that would destroy our democratic form of government. Sadly, it seems the President was right as a massive bureaucracy now makes rules that have nothing to do with the will of the electorate. A move away from power by the people to power of the government over the electorate to dictate every area of life has provoked growing anger from conservatives. Conservatives crave retention of the Constitution that guarantees the rights of Americans to be free of government tyranny. Much of the current lack of agreement is related to social issues, with economic issues taking a back seat. But, increasingly, as Federal Reserve's counterfeiting actions result in hyperinflation and Americans realize this money printing scam is the reason for their poverty and the massive wealth of the top 1%, Richard believes a setting very similar to Cuba in 1958 may leave power in America up for grabs by any number of interests. Richard will explain what to watch for to determine who will gain power and what investments you should own in preparation for a hyperinflationary event starting with gold. Roger will give us an update on Labrador Gold Corp on its Kingsway project that is starting to show some very high grade results. These results are starting to resemble the results of the emerging world class gold discovery on the Queensway project next door by New Found Gold.

L'Assemblée constituante chilienne a adopté son règlement - sa méthode de travail - il y a dix jours et elle entame ce lundi 18 octobre les débats sur le contenu de la future Constitution. Une date symboliquement très importante pour les élus, chargés de remplacer le texte actuel, hérité de la dictature du général Augusto Pinochet. Car ce lundi, le pays célèbre le deuxième anniversaire du mouvement social d'octobre 2019. Des manifestations historiques avaient éclaté contre les inégalités, et contre le modèle économique néo-libéral imposé sous Pinochet. De notre correspondante à Santiago, Dans ce quartier pauvre de la banlieue sud de Santiago, des habitants ont organisé une exposition de photos, des jeux pour enfants et un concert pour célébrer le deuxième anniversaire du mouvement social contre les inégalités. « C'est important de commémorer cette date, insiste Cristina Bustos, 50 ans, l'une des organisatrices. Car cette mobilisation a eu un coût pour le peuple. Des personnes ont été mutilées, des gens sont morts. Cela n'a pas été facile. Ce qu'on a obtenu, cela a été à ce prix-là. » Résultat du mouvement social, le pays est en pleine rédaction d'une nouvelle Constitution. Et le règlement de l'assemblée constituante, qui vient d'être adopté, prévoit une forte représentation des femmes à la tête des commissions, par exemple. « Il ne doit pas y avoir de limite à la présence des femmes, souligne Alondra Carrillo, élue de cette circonscription de Santiago et militante féministe. Car il nous faut corriger l'exclusion historique des femmes des espaces de décision politique. Les coordinations des commissions sont donc paritaires, à l'exception de la commission de décentralisation, qui est dirigée par deux femmes. » « Modèle social-démocrate » En plus d'être paritaire, cette assemblée est composée de nombreux élus indépendants des partis politiques, et de représentants des peuples autochtones. Une assemblée plus représentative de la société chilienne, et majoritairement de gauche. « Le contenu du règlement adopté nous permet déjà d'anticiper ce qui va arriver ensuite, explique Claudio Fuentes, professeur de sciences politiques à l'université Diego Portales à Santiago. La Constitution actuelle est plutôt néo-libérale, et on s'attend à ce que la nouvelle Constitution soit plus proche d'un modèle social-démocrate, avec un État plus fort, plus de droits sociaux. Mais aussi avec de nouveaux droits qui n'existaient pas dans le texte actuel, comme les droits des peuples autochtones, les droits des enfants, le droit au logement, et puis probablement les droits de la nature et des animaux. » Les premiers mois de la Constituante n'ont malgré tout pas été faciles. Le gouvernement de droite au pouvoir n'a pas accordé un budget suffisant pour qu'elle fonctionne dans de bonnes conditions. Les élus espèrent donc que le nouveau président, qui doit être élu à la fin de l'année, n'entravera pas les travaux de cette assemblée, qui a encore neuf mois pour rédiger la nouvelle Constitution. Le texte devra ensuite être soumis à référendum.

Recently, as a Nation we lost the lives of 13 honorable and noble United States Marines.  People who took an oath to this Country to defend and protect the Constitution, and the people of America.  United States Marines that were not even given the honor of having their names read into record in the United States House of Representatives.  United States Marines, who were willing to give all—and did. Their commanding officers and those that love this Nation, will forever remember them as GOOD SOLDIERS.   I am reminded of those in the Christ's Army who have died on the battlefields of faith and of the legacy they left behind. I am referring to people like those mentioned in Hebrews 11. Great men and women of God who were good soldiers of the cross and who died on the battlefield to preserve our precious faith.  As we think of these people who have sacrificed so much for us, I want to remind you of a very awesome truth. One day, our lives will all be over! One day every person in this room will be just a memory to those living on this planet.  When it comes time for you to leave this world, what kind of legacy will you leave behind?  When people remember the kind of person you were, will they remember you as a soldier of the cross?  The time to think about these things is now. After you are gone, it will be forever too late!    As Paul neared the end of his life, he languished in a Roman prison. But, from that cell, the great Apostle took steps to ensure that he would be remembered as a good solider of the cross.  He took the time to write to young Timothy and give him the secret for becoming a good soldier.  It is that thought that I would like to consider this morning as we think together about the Five Qualities Of A Good Soldier.

Le mouvement pro-démocratie se rassemble quasiment toutes les semaines depuis plus d'un an. Issus à l'origine des milieux étudiants, les militants, au profil de plus en plus divers, réclament des réformes économiques et constitutionnelles, notamment un contrôle accru du Parlement sur la monarchie. Mais les royalistes ne l'entendent pas de cette oreille. Pour eux, seul un Roi tout-puissant peut garantir la force et l'unité du pays. Ils organisaient cette semaine des contre-manifestations. Ce sont deux visions de la Thaïlande qui s'opposent.  De notre correspondante à Bangkok, Rappeurs sur haut-parleurs et discours survoltés, dans cette manifestation du groupe pro-démocratie Thalu faa, de jeunes urbains désœuvrés côtoient des anciens du mouvement paysan des « Chemises rouges ». Tous demandent une réforme en profondeur de la société thaïlandaise, pour permettre un développement économique plus équitable, des lois qui s'appliquent à tous. Ils exigent notamment un contrôle parlementaire sur la monarchie, perçue comme rempart des élites et un frein aux réformes, ainsi que le départ de l'administration militaire, arrivée au pouvoir par coup d'État. Pour l'historien thaïlandais Thanet Apornsuvan, les agissements des élites ont terni l'image de la monarchie : « À cause de tous ces coups d'État, à cause de tous ces renversements de gouvernements démocratiquement élus, de ces réécritures de la Constitution comme si c'était un vulgaire bout de papier alors qu'elle est censée être notre législation suprême, les élites conservatrices ont abîmé la notion de légitimité politique en Thaïlande en invoquant à chaque fois la protection de la monarchie et en l'utilisant comme une justification de toutes ces actions illégales contre des gouvernements démocratiques. » Les royalistes durcissent le ton face aux militants pro-démocratie Mais tout le monde n'est pas de cet avis. À quelques kilomètres des jeunes démocrates, un groupe d'ultra-royalistes a organisé une contre-manifestation. Ici, les tee-shirts sont jaunes, la couleur royale, ou blanc, imprimé du drapeau thaïlandais. Tout le monde ici n'appartient pas aux élites, à l'instar de Somneuk Lakachai, instituteur. Pour lui, le maintien d'une monarchie forte est l'élément qui a toujours su empêcher la Thaïlande de tomber aux mains de puissances étrangères, coloniales ou communistes et surtout, c'est elle qui garantit l'unité du pays. « La monarchie, c'est ce qui nous aide à vivre ensemble, tous les Thaïlandais. Regardez en France, il y a des tensions avec les musulmans. Prenez l'histoire de Charlie Hebdo par exemple, des dessinateurs se sont moqués de la religion musulmane, des citoyens musulmans ont demandé à ce qu'ils soient condamnés, mais les autorités ont répondu que c'est la liberté d'expression. Alors des musulmans se sont mis en colère et ont tué plus de 10 personnes. Ici en Thaïlande, ça ne peut pas arriver, car le Roi protège toutes les religions de façon égale. » Les royalistes soupçonnent les démocrates de préparer sous couvert de réforme, une abolition de la monarchie. Ils préviennent qu'ils sont prêts à prendre les armes pour la défendre. Deux Thaïlande apparemment irréconciliables se font face.

TREK IT OUT Edited by Jake Morgan and Thomas Reynolds Shatner Slips The Surly Bonds Of Earth By Elio Lleo Space. The Final Frontier. And our first captain, James T. Kirk went on an incredible journey. Well, it was William Shatner who did the journey. On Wednesday, October 13th, the 90 year old broke records by joining Blue Origin for their second human space trip! At 10:30AM ET, all systems were a go and the Blue Origin rocket took off. Thankfully, the entire adventure went off without a hitch and upon exiting the pod, Shatner was visibly moved by the entire experience.  Photo Via TVLine.com After-Action Report: NYCC 2021 Star Trek: Discovery New York Comic Con returned to in-person events this year with phenomenal panels, incredible cosplay, and–of course–sneak peeks into the future of Star Trek. Our focus this episode is on the Star Trek: Discovery and Prodigy panels that took place over this last weekend. First, Star Trek: Discovery and its upcoming fourth season: this was a riveting panel with a surprising in-depth, yet spoiler-free, look into what we can expect from our intrepid characters. When asked about the general “theme” of this next season, Wilson Cruz had this to say: “I feel like the stakes that we were living in reads in that trailer...the stakes in the story were really high, but the stakes in which we were making and telling the story were also high. And the theme of the entire season is about uncertainty, and about how we come together to deal with it and walk through uncertainty, to lean on each other as we find a way through it. And we were doing that in life as well, so I'm excited for you to see it.” Showrunner Michelle Paradise followed up by explaining that in this season, “The Federation isn't quite back together again….it's continuing in Season 4.” For our first non-binary and trans characters, much was left wanting in Season 3. So, will Grey finally be seen? Wilson Cruz had this to say, “we find a way to make sure Grey is seen as promised, and we get to see just how vital he becomes to the story and our mission. And I'm just excited about the fact that we have–finally–an official trans character on the show, in Star Trek, in the universe. And he does an amazing job.” Now, things got a little spicy in the auditorium when Sonequa Martin-Green and David Ajala were asked if we'd ever learn about what happened between their characters during that fateful year. Here's what they had to say: DA: “I think it was just...a period of time where they were in the right place at the right time, to help each other, and to bring out the best in each other." SMG: "Mmmhmm." DA: "And it was...y'all need to behave yourselves. And...I think there was a lot of growth." [Someone saying what we're all thinking–Ed.]: "How much growth was there? And what was Grudge doing when all this 'growing' was happening?" DA: "Grudge was minding their own business. The timing was perfect for Michael Burnham to[...]rejoin Starfleet, but to really find her own identity independent [of] Starfleet. And it was also good for Cleveland Booker to be part of a 'family.' Again, these two people met each other at the right place at the right time, and I think Cleveland Booker is a better man for it. And Grudge too–and Grudge says 'wassup,' by the way." Speaking of characters, if you've already watched the trailer–and you should have by now!– you can probably assume this is going to be a high-octane, high-stakes kind of season. How will Tilly be affected? Mary Wiseman had this to say,"that in combination with all the events of the third season similar to the way this pandemic experience, really kind of forced her to reinvestigate herself and her motivations. It kind of spirals her off into this personal journey, actually, which was very fun to play with.” Sonequa Martin-Green followed with,“I think a lot of us on the ship...I don't think any of us were expecting to have a threat this big soon after jumping to this future. Because that was huge. and then I know for Burnham, it's a lot, it's like 'man, here we are again with a threat of great, of great magnitude." And so of course, these people in this story, being the honorable people they are, their true character comes out at that moment of greatest pressure. It's beautiful stuff that comes out, as hard as it may be.” But, filming Season 4 during a pandemic was no small feat. When asked about how COVID impacted production, Michelle Paradise had this to say: “Discovery was actually one of the first producitons to go back. WE started back in November, and we were certainly the first show of this size to do it. There aren't enough words to talk about the tremendous, tremendous effort that our entire crew, our entire cast did to make the show this season. I cannot overstate how challenging it was, every step of the way, making sure we could make a show like this while keeping people safe. That being our focus, and then also making a show...it was tremendously challenging, and everyone came together, and worked together, and collaborated, and it was really beautiful to see and very difficult at the same time. The fact that we have this, that we can show you guys, it's really amazing. Our team is just incredible.” Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 premiers November 18th. Photo Via Heavy.com Star Trek: Prodigy Now, moving on to Star Trek Prodigy. Attendees of the panel were given an exclusive early screening of the first episode and an extended clip of HoloJaneway's introduction to the crew is already online. But moderator Dawn Lewis–who plays Captain Freeman on Lower Decks–opened the panel with an important question: how will Prodigy stay true to the franchise? To which the Brothers Hageman replied, “they start way out in the Delta Quadrant...that was our way in: we wanted a bunch of new characters who knew nothing about Star Trek, just like our young audience. And then slowly (as you saw at the end of the pilot) they meet hologram Janeway, and then with every episode we get closer and closer into the Trekverse. We get to have so much fun taking our time, and introducing everything we love about Star Trek. For me, growing up, Trek was just so aspirational and I feel that, for kids today, not only they need that, I need that.” Now, what about the style of Prodigy? Why CGI animation? Well, Producer Ben Hibon explained, “we wanted the show to have great scope and this feeling of adventure to be immense and fantastical. But at the same time the characters and their stories are very intimate. So we wanted the freedom to shoot these characters as we would cinematic as possible–to be as engaging with all of us as possible, as we go on this adventure with them.” Not only did fans get a sneak peek but, we were also surprised to learn of new characters and actors being welcomed into the production. Daveed Diggs will voice Commander Tysess, an Andorian (Diggs is a Grammy and Tony-award winning member of the original Broadway cast of Hamilton). Jameela Jamil will voice Ensign Asencia, a Trill (Jamil is best known for her role in The Good Place), and Jason Alexander will voice Doctor Noum, a Tellarite (of course, we know George Costanza on Seinfeld, and Kurros in the VOY episode “Think Tank,”). And the big reveal…well, we'll let the Hageman Brothers tell you,"oh wait, there's one other person. There's one small person named 'Captain Chakotay' [CAPTAIN?–Ed.] by Robert Beltran is coming on our show.” So will we see the Protostar traverse the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, as well as spending time in the Delta?

The United States is fraught with angst, fear, anger, and divisiveness due to our current political climate. How did we get here? And where are we headed?Before the American Revolutionary period, Americans thought that the British constitution was the best in the world. Under the British system and their colonial charters, free Americans already enjoyed greater liberties and opportunities than any other people, including those in Britain.Once they declared independence in 1776, the former British colonies in America needed their own rules for a new system of government. They drafted and adopted State constitutions. They needed cooperation between the States to fight the British, so the new States tried a confederation. It was too weak, so eleven years after declaring independence, the Framers devised a revolutionary federal and national constitution—the first major written constitution of the modern world.The new State and federal constitutions and the system of law were deeply influenced by the British system, but with brilliant and revolutionary changes.Today's guest is James D.R. Philip, author of the book “Two Revolutions and the Constitutuion.” He describes how Americans removed the British monarch and entrenched their freedoms in an innovative scheme that was tyrant-proof and uniquely American. It was built on the sovereignty of the American people rather than the sovereignty of a king or queen.So, as well as describing the American Revolution and the development of the American constitutions that came before the final Constitution, we discuss the revolutionary development of the English system of law and government that was a foundation of the American system.

This week, Johnson joins The Thought Project to discuss the military tribunal at Guantánamo Bay of five men accused of aiding the 9/11 attacks. The Guantánamo Bay prison was established under controversial terms: The U.S. government declared that the U.S. Constitution did not apply to those being put on trial. Johnson believes that this extralegal history undermines the legitimacy of the tribunals. He argues that the indefinite detention of accused terrorists serves neither the interests of the U.S. government nor the legal concerns of those detained.

Even if Biden wasn't Uncontstituionally seated in the White House, his action since being installed in office have ranged from illegal to treasonous. Every Republican with any loyalty to the Constitution should be running on impeaching this fraud. In this episode, I cover the numerous dumpster fires and outright tyrannical conduct of this Administration. The Democrats rely on censorship and hiding facts, data, and evidence to maintain power by keeping you uninformed. Only liars, cheats, and tyrants seek to operate in the dark, only they seek censorship. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thejacobjohnstonshow/message

President Joe Biden rejected Donald Trump's request that the White House invoke executive privilege to hide from Congress and the American people his (Trump's) misconduct in connection with the insurrection. But it's what Joe Biden said in announcing that decision that should instill confidence in the American that President Biden is intent on holding Donald Trump accountable for his misconduct. In a statement delivered by his White House Counsel Dana Remus, President Biden said, "Congress is examining an assault on our Constitution and democratic institutions provoked and fanned by those sworn to protect them," in other words, by Donald Trump. In rejecting Trumps' executive privilege request, President Biden conveyed that Trump's conduct "reflects a clear and apparent effort to subvert the Constitution itself." Here is why the words chose by President Biden are so important and represent an optimistic sign of things to come.

In a time of deep wounds and division within our culture, McEwen exhorts Americans, especially Christians, to be aware of our unique place in history. As President John Adams stated, Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. A passionate advocate for homeschooling, McEwen underscores the importance of teaching our kids to fear God, love America, and honor their parents. Only then can we preserve this last and greatest hope on earth. United we stand; divided we fall.

On Friday's Mark Levin Show, is President Biden uniting the country by celebrating indigenous people's day or by claiming that unemployment went down since more Americans have opted out of the labor force and joined the welfare state? All while citizens are losing their jobs because of mandates? Biden and the Democrats are subsidizing big government, spending your tax dollars recklessly, weakening our economy, and lifting sanctions on Iranian missile producers and that was just today. Then, the battle of over critical race theory continues as more parents attend school board meetings to criticize Biden's push to silence their speech by saying it's 'violence.' Later, Marc Elias and his gang of Pennsylvania attorneys succeeded in usurping the federal Constitution in the 2020 election through filing lawsuits and friendly judges ruling favorably in their favor. This negates Pennsylvania's state Constitution because changes to election law can only come from the legislature or a change in the state's Constitution - not from the State's Supreme Court. The lawsuit to prevent this from happening again in the future has been brought again because the US Supreme Court refused to even hear the case back in 2020. This case isn't about former President Trump or reversing past elections, it has to do with protecting future elections from activist judges. Afterward, Biden's policies are hurting America because coal and natural gas are used to make electricity. With crude oil at the highest cost per barrel since 2014, the country is facing a serious problem of deindustrialization. Limiting our own access to natural resources preventing America from producing its way out of this problem that was engineered by Biden and the Democrats.
