Dems Want to Rob from the Rich—and Give to the Near-Rich
The progressive movement talks incessantly about needing bold, revolutionary reforms to address poverty and inequality. Elizabeth Warren asks, “Who is our government going to work for? Is it going to just keep working for the rich and the powerful… or for everyone else?” Even before the recession, Bernie Sanders lamented the “national disgrace that 46.5 million Americans are living in poverty today.” Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden asserts that “poverty… is the one thing that can bring this country down.”But do progressive proposals really focus on redistributing from the wealthy to the poor? Distributional analyses show that many of their policies would mainly redistribute resources from the super-wealthy to the merely wealthy, upper-middle class, and professional class. They would redistribute from the top-earning 99th percentile to the 80th percentile.This is a predictable result of a quiet political realignment. Much of the working class and middle portions of America have drifted to the GOP, while the far left increasingly consists of younger, educated, upwardly mobile professionals that primarily live in expensive cities and on the coasts. Democrats have also worked to make inroads with educated, professional suburbanites too.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Cops Made Him an Informant Over $80 of Pot. Then He Turned Up Dead.
Courtesy Sundance NowCops’ national reputation isn’t exactly sterling right now, and it won’t be helped by The Dakota Entrapment Tapes, a two-part Sundance Now docuseries premiering Oct. 27 that serves as a case study in law enforcement misconduct and the larger failure of America’s war on drugs. Even in a genre rife with tales of slipshod police behavior, it’s a story destined to make one’s blood boil.Director Trevor Birney’s series—which, after originally screening as a feature-length documentary at festivals earlier this year, has been split into two parts—relays the unnecessary tragedy that befell Andrew Sadek. A student at North Dakota State College of Science, the 20-year-old Sadek went missing on May 1, 2014. Nearly two months later, his body was found in the nearby Red River with a fatal gunshot wound to the head, sporting clothes that were different than the ones he was last seen wearing, and saddled with a backpack filled with rocks. For his parents John and Tammy Sadek, whose older son had previously perished in an automobile accident, the loss was cataclysmic. And it was made worse by the fact that NDSCS Campus Police Sergeant Steve Helgeson, who led the investigation, had few answers as to why Andrew met this untimely fate, which Helgeson initially deemed a suicide.Revelations were forthcoming, however, and what they exposed about those carrying out the inquiry weren’t flattering. As it turned out, Andrew—a recreational pot smoker, like his close friends and millions of other undergraduates—had been caught selling $20 and $60 of marijuana, respectively, to two separate NDSCS students by Richland County deputy sheriff Jason Weber. In a recorded interrogation-room interview that The Dakota Entrapment Tapes uses to damning effect, Weber explains to Andrew (on his 20th birthday) that because these sales occurred on a college campus, they were felonies, and carried with them a maximum jail sentence of 40 years. The prospect of a lifetime behind bars naturally terrified the kid, and made it easier for Weber to execute his subsequent plan: turning Andrew into a confidential informant tasked with making drug sales that would lead to further arrests.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Trump Has United Americans in a Popular Front for Democracy
Michael Reynolds - Pool/Getty ImagesDemocracy gets another kick in the teeth today when the Senate votes to confirm an illegitimate Supreme Court nominee. Mitch McConnell is an enemy of democracy. So is Lindsey Graham, and so is every senator who votes to endorse this madness—the first time in the history of this country that a Supreme Court justice has been confirmed in the second half of an election year.Amy Coney Barrett is of course complicit in all this, though she isn’t quite an enemy of democracy—yet. If, however, the court is asked after she’s on it to make a ruling on this election and she doesn’t recuse herself and casts a vote supporting the political interests of the president who nominated her, then she’ll join the club, too.As others have observed, this election is not Democrats vs. Republicans. It’s democrats, small-d, vs. authoritarians. The Republican Party is no longer a democratic party. Republicans are interested in our democratic institutions only to the extent that they can use and distort them for the purposes of keeping power.Read more at The Daily Beast.

How Instagrammers Are Faking the Luxury of a Private Jet for Just $64 an Hour
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos via InstagramFor a brief moment in 2017, Bow Wow spent a day as one of the internet’s supporting characters. From an airport in Georgia, the rapper shared an Instagram photo of a private jet. “Travel Day,” the caption read. “Lets gooo.” Minutes later, a seatmate posted a photo of him in economy on a regular flight. The jet picture, it turned out, had been a stock image stolen from a Ft. Lauderdale private limousine company. Twitter filled with photos of the #BowWowChallenge—trappings of luxury, but obviously faked. “Gotta spoil myself now and then,” one user wrote, alongside a clunky Rolex drawn on construction paper.The #BowWowChallenge got something close to a reboot recently, when word broke that Los Angeles photo studios rent out fake private jets. “Nahhhhh I just found out LA ig girlies are using studio sets that look like private jets for their Instagram pics,” @maisonmelissa wrote on Twitter. When blogs got wind, they collected photos of culprits posing by the same white leather seats, mahogany paneling, and small, round windows. “TikTok & Instagram influencers exposed for renting fake private jet set,” the Dexerto headline read. Even Lil Nas X—notorious ex-Tweet decker—weighed in, photoshopping himself onto the familiar white upholstery. “It’s crazy that anything you’re looking at could be fake,” @maisonmelissa said. “The setting, the clothes, the body… idk it just kinda of shakes my reality a bit lol.”But like the photos, the story wasn’t exactly what it seemed. For one, the searches turned up only a few images, just a fraction of which came from actual influencer accounts. For another, they hadn’t come from a range of studios, but from a single venue in Los Angeles called FD Photo Studio, which bills its fake jet as the first and only of its kind in the city. For a third, only a small portion of their clientele come from personal shoots. Most customers use the set for the same reasons they use any other in Los Angeles: the entertainment industry. “Hip-hop music videos are our bread and butter,” an FD Photo Studio employee said. That bears out—check out the jet in the music video for Famous Dex’s “What I Like.”Read more at The Daily Beast.

FBI Sits on Report Detailing White Supremacist Terror Threat
Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast / Photos Getty/Wikimedia CommonsThe FBI has failed to produce a legally required report detailing the scope of white supremacist and other domestic terrorism, despite mounting concerns that the upcoming election could spark far-right violence.According to a key House committee chairman, that leaves the country in the dark about what the FBI concedes is America’s most urgent terrorist threat, as well as the resources the U.S. government is devoting to fight it.In June, the bureau was supposed to release a report compiling a wealth of currently unavailable data on domestic terrorism, a category that includes white supremacist violence. The most recent National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) requires the FBI, in accord with Department of Homeland Security and consultation with the Office of Director of National Intelligence, specify not only known acts of domestic terrorism, but “ideologies relating to domestic terrorism,” and what the FBI and its partners are doing to combat it all.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Billy Porter: America Is Not ‘Better Than This.’ But It Can Be.
Santiago Felipe/Getty“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” —James Baldwin“We are better than this!” I hate it when people say that as if what’s going on in America at present is something new. So let me be clear right up front: America is not now, nor have we ever been, better than this. We have tried and, for suspended moments in time, we have succeeded. But make no mistake: This moment we are in is pure and purposeful chaos. We are a country founded on the plunder and genocide of a people who were already occupying this land, and a country built on the backs of a people stolen from their homeland, shackled on ships, and brought here to be enslaved. For 250 years! Think about that for just one moment. Take that number in for real. I finally have: a quarter-millennium.Read more at The Daily Beast.
