#equality #betterlife — Vermont Senator #BernieSanders, the most popular politician in America who is also my dad, will announce a plan for the government to guarantee a $15-an-hour job and healthcare to every American “who wants or needs one,” the Washington Post reported on Monday.
-
While few specifics—including the cost of such a large-scale, New Deal-style government works program—are available yet, the jobs guarantee would reportedly fund hundreds of infrastructure, environmental, education, and other projects across the country. An early draft of the proposal would entitle every American to a job with one of these projects or the training to make them eligible for one, according to the Post.
-
Sanders’ proposal—which, unfortunately, would be dead on arrival in a current Republican-controlled Congress—would go significantly beyond what any other leading Democrats have so far said the idea of a federal jobs guarantee.
-
New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, both of whom are considered possible 2020 presidential candidates along with Sanders, have both said they support a job guarantee, but have provided far fewer details.
-
As we’ve written about before on Splinter, this is not only good policy—giving people jobs is a relatively simple way to quickly and dramatically improve their quality of life—it’s also politically very savvy for the Democrats, because a federal jobs guarantee is enormously popular among voters.
-
A way to make people’s lives better and also win some elections instead of being preoccupied by shit voters couldn’t care less about? Sounds like a pretty good move.

#hero — A man being hailed as a hero after wrestling a gun from a man in a Nashville, Tenn., Waffle House has raised more than $45,000 for the families of the victims.
-
James Shaw Jr., 29, sustained a gunshot wound and burns when he grabbed the assault-style rifle from a gunman who opened fire at the restaurant early Sunday, killing four people and wounding at least three others.
-
"I'm not a hero. I'm just a regular person, and I think anybody could have did what I did if they are just pushed into that kind of cage," Shaw said at a news conference, according to The Washington Post.
-
"You have to either react or you're going to fold, and I chose to react because I didn't see any other way of living, and that's all I wanted to do. I just wanted to live."
-
Shaw created a #GoFundMe page to raise money for the victims' families. It had raised nearly twice its $15,000 goal in just 19 hours. As of early Monday evening, the page had raised nearly $46,000.
-
"Please take the time to donate as all of the proceeds will be given to the families," the page reads. "Thank you again for your generosity and blessings!"
-
More than 800 people have donated so far, with many praising Shaw's courage in addition to expressing condolences for the victims.
-
"Thank you for your bravery, Mr. Shaw," one donor wrote. "You are the future of our country. Please take care of yourself to heal from your traumatic experience, and God bless you."
-
The suspected gunman, 29-year-old Travis Reinking, was captured by police Monday afternoon after a manhunt lasting more than 24 hours.
-
The White House praised Shaw's "heroic actions" during a press briefing Monday.

🤔🔊 #imaginethat — Reinking was reportedly apprehended in a “wooded area.”
-
Reinking has a history of erratic behavior and has been involved multiple previous run-ins with law enforcement, including a July 2017 arrest outside the White House.
-
Reinking reportedly referred to himself as a “sovereign citizen” when questioned at the time, suggesting that he may have some sort of connection to anti-government extremists; a spokesman for Nashville police said on Monday his motive for carrying out the Waffle House attack is still unknown.
-
Authorities removed four firearms from Reinking’s apartment after the White House arrest, leaving them in the care of his father—who apparently later returned the weapons, one of which was used in the Sunday massacre.

#notsurprised — National security adviser John Bolton recently served as the chairman of a nonprofit that shared inaccurate anti-Muslim news reports, according to NBC News.
-
Bolton was the chairman of the Gatestone Institute, a group that was found to have shared false or misleading news items about Muslims, the network reported, adding that he joined the nonprofit in 2013 and resigned last month before entering the Trump administration.
-
The site has published and promoted stories with headlines like "Germany Confiscating Homes to Use for Migrants," which focused on one apartment in the city of Hamburg going into temporary trusteeship, NBC News noted.
-
Another piece from September 2017 features the headline "Europe: The Great White Death?" It focuses on a study by an author who argues that "the native population - by which he means the white population - of Europe face[s] extinction."
-
Gatestone describes itself as "a non-partisan, not-for-profit international policy council and think tank ... dedicated to educating the public about what the mainstream media fails to report," including topic like "threats to our individual liberty, sovereignty and free speech."
-
Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, told NBC News that the institute is "a key part of the whole Islamaphobic cottage industry on the internet" and that Bolton's association with the group "is very disturbing."
-
NBC News also identified instances of Russia trolls directly sharing content from Gatestone by retweeting the institute's account.
-
And Sputnik, the Russian state-owned news agency, has frequently cited Gatestone pieces, according to the network.
-
Trump tapped Bolton as his new national security adviser in March, and he began serving in the post earlier this month. Bolton did speak out against Trump's plan to ban refugees from majority-Muslim countries in the past.

#ticktock — Flight records obtained by Bloomberg suggest that President Donald Trump wasn’t entirely truthful when he twice told then-FBI Director James Comey that he never spent the night in Moscow during the 2013 Miss Universe pageant.
-
In their analysis, reporters for Bloomberg Politics found that despite the president’s insistence that he never spent a night in Moscow during the time period in which he allegedly paid Russian prostitutes to urinate on a bed that Barack Obama once slept on, he does appear to have stayed two nights over the weekend of the pageant.
-
Per records Bloomberg purchased from data aviation company FlightAware, a plane likely carrying Trump left Asheville, North Carolina (where he’d been attending a birthday celebration for the late Rev. Billy Graham) on November 7, 2013.
-
The jet, which is owned by the president’s business partner Phil Ruffin, touched down in Moscow’s Vnukovo airport early the morning of Friday, November 8 — and did not take off until 3:58 AM local time on Sunday, November 10. It landed at Newark Liberty International Airport at 4:11 AM New York time on the 10th.
-
The report’s analysis also includes Trump’s social media posts from the pageant, which indicated that he attended a birthday party on Friday night, stayed at the Ritz Moscow and attended the pageant on Saturday, and went to an after-party for the event whose listed start time was 1 AM Sunday morning.

Regrann from @sirpennypacker - #everyday — A person suspected of killing four people at a Waffle House in #Nashville early on Sunday was arrested by the Secret Service in 2017, according to Nashville police.
-
Authorities are offering a $2,500 reward in exchange for information that leads to an arrest.
-
The suspected shooter, who is still at large, was arrested in July 2017 for being in a restricted area near the White House, said Don Aaron, a spokesman for the Nashville police, on Sunday.
-
Police suspect the shooter is Travis Reinking, 29, from Morton, Ill.
-
The #Tennessee Bureau of Investigation announced on Sunday that Reinking has been added to the state's Top Ten Most Wanted List.
-
Reinking got his Illinois firearm authorization revoked at the request of the FBI after his arrest in 2017, Aaron said.
-
His weapons, including the AR-15 reportedly used in the Waffle House shooting, were seized by authorities in 2017 after his arrest and, according to Aaron, later given to Reinking's father, who has said he returned them to his son.
-
Two of the four firearms were found after the shooting; however, the other two are unaccounted for.
-
"Travis Reinking's whereabouts are presently unknown. Searches are on by law enforcement throughout the area, including our federal partners," Aaron said.
-
The suspected shooter pulled into the Waffle House parking lot around 3:19 a.m. and sat in his car for up to four minutes before using an assault-style rifle to fatally wound two people outside the restaurant, police said.
-
He then entered the restaurant and opened fire, shooting a total of six people. Two more people have died in the incident.
-
James Shaw, Jr., 29, is being hailed as hero after tackling Reinking to the ground while he tried to reload his AR-15-style assault rifle. Shaw wrestled the gun away from Reinking and threw it over the counter out of the shooter’s reach.
