You might think from recent press accounts that Steve Bannon is on the ropes and therefore behaving prudently. In the aftermath of events in Charlottesville, he is widely blamed for his boss’s continuing indulgence of white supremacists. Allies of National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster hold Bannon responsible for a campaign by Breitbart News, which Bannon once led, to vilify the security chief. Trump’s defense of Bannon, at his Tuesday press conference, was tepid.

Gettysburg National Park reveals future of its Confederate statues

The Blaze - Thu, 08/17/2017 - 09:51

Despite the decision made by many cities and states across the country to remove Confederate monuments in the wake of last weekend’s white supremacist terror attack in Charlottesville, Virginia, one national park said it will not remove any Civil War memorials.

The Hanover Evening Sun in Hanover, Pennsylvania, home to Gettysburg National Military Park, reported Tuesday that the Civil War battlefield memorial plans to keep all of its more than 1,325 monuments, markers and plaques in place, including those dedicated to the Confederacy.

“These memorials, erected predominantly in the early and mid-20th century, are an important part of the cultural landscape,” Katie Lawhon, spokeswoman for Gettysburg National Military Park, told the Evening Sun.

“The National Park Service is committed to safe guarding these unique and site-specific memorials in perpetuity, while simultaneously interpreting holistically and objectively the actions, motivations and causes of the soldiers and states they commemorate,” the National Park Service, which oversees the Gettysburg National Military Park, added on its website, the Patriot-News reported.

The Battle of Gettysburg represented a significant defeat for Confederate forces during the yearslong Civil War.

According to the History Channel, the Union lost more than 23,000 troops at Gettysburg, while the Confederacy lost more than a third of its soldiers — around 28,000 troops.

The terror attack in Charlottesville, Virginia, resulted from the city’s effort to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Several other cities, including Lexington, Kentucky, and Baltimore, have since “accelerated” plans to remove similar monuments.

Furthermore, the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR, which is the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights organization, called on cities and states across the country to take down Confederate statues and rename roads and highways named for Confederate leaders.

CAIR executive director Nihad Awad told the Daily Caller earlier this week that doing so would be a “fitting response” to Charlottesville.

Somebody screwed up in estimating ATC privatization costs

HotAir - Thu, 08/17/2017 - 09:21

So will Bill Shuster’s air traffic control (ATC) privatization plan get a vote when Congress gets back to work for the fall session? If it does, they’d better be sure to find somebody who can do basic math first and take a fresh look at the numbers. We already saw a decided lack of enthusiasm (if not outright opposition) from some members of the GOP, but now the Democrats are getting in on the act. Several of them have been reviewing the cost estimates for the plan and it’s looking as if this scheme would wind up costing significantly more than we were originally told. (AIN Online)

Democratic leaders in the U.S. are asking the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to take a fresh look at the costs associated with the House FAA reauthorization package. They say changes to the bill and taxes associated with the air traffic control privatization proposal would increase the deficit by billions more than original estimates.

The leaders, including the ranking Democrats of four House committees, noted the CBO estimated that the ATC proposal in the 21st Century AIRR Act, H.R.2997, would increase net deficits by more than $20 billion over the next 10 years and by more than $5 billion in subsequent 10-year periods.

But since that estimate, “significant changes” have been made to the bill, including the addition of a tax proposal associated with the measure that would separate ATC from the FAA. The proposal “slashes revenues from aviation excise taxes by more than $15 billion per year.” Other changes of the bill include $1 billion in cuts to airport grants, an additional $945 million.

I’ll just say upfront that it’s refreshing to see the Democrats actually taking an interest in how much government proposals cost and being concerned about the deficit. (Though I’m sure the fact that President Trump has endorsed this dubious measure has made them noticeably more eager to find a reason to oppose it.) It’s particularly interesting to see any of them potentially opposing any measure which would hand so much power to unions. But no matter the underlying reason, the question being brought up is a valid one.

Keep in mind that this is, at the heart of it, ostensibly a privatization measure. While the system could clearly use some technological upgrades, all privatization plans are supposed to take advantage of the competition and efficiencies of the private sector to reduce costs to the taxpayers. Even if the original numbers had been correct, this plan would have been driving us tens of billions of dollars further in the hole. But now that more changes to the plan have been introduced to appease some opponents, those projections have changed. There could be another 15 to 20 billion added to the deficit in the first decade in addition to the losses the original plan projected.

Never mind that fact that this scheme would hand far too much power to the few remaining major airlines and their unions while likely driving up costs for consumers. The bottom line for this deal simply doesn’t work out. This plan doesn’t need a vote or even a revamp. It should be scrapped and proponents should be given the time to come up with a new proposal which delivers technical upgrades while instituting real privatization and savings.

Bipartisan agreement on Charlottesville attack? Update: Poll pulled? Update: Restored, no explanation

HotAir - Thu, 08/17/2017 - 08:41

Americans largely agree on at least two points on the Charlottesville riot and response, according to a new CBS poll taken Monday through Wednesday. First, 63% of respondents agree that the car attack on the crowd that took the life of one woman and injured 19 others qualifies as domestic terrorism, a finding that has majority support among all three partisan demographics. Second, majorities in all three agreed that Donald Trump needed to do more after his initial statement on Saturday.

After that, it goes off the rails a bit for the president. The poll shows Trump at 34/55 for his response to the Charlottesville incident:

He gets majority disapproval overall for his response to the events, while most Republicans approve. Republicans interviewed following Tuesday’s press conference also feel Mr. Trump is assigning blame accurately in the matter, while Democrats and Independents, and the country overall, disagree.

Post-Tuesday afternoon, views on the president’s description of events are tightly tied to overall views of his handling of the matter. Independents and Democrats, and the country overall, feel his description of blame in the events is inaccurate; Republicans feel it is accurate.

Specifically, Democrats disapprove in the extreme, 10/82, which is no surprise. Independents also strongly disapprove, 32/53, not far off the overall result, but Republicans are more supportive. Still, at 67/22, it’s not exactly a slam dunk among GOP voters, and the timing of the poll in relation to Tuesday’s press conference is likely to raise at least some question as to whether that’s an accurate depiction of current support. The numbers are almost identical for the question of whether Trump laid blame for the incident accurately:

In a new CBS News poll, 55% of Americans say Pres. Trump’s view that “both sides” are to blame is inaccurate: https://t.co/pVELgSkxhk pic.twitter.com/hxoyfoDtxp

— CBS News (@CBSNews) August 17, 2017

Note that the CBS graphic says that the sample for this was from “Aug 15-16,” with a ±4% margin of error. The toplines don’t make that distinction; that’s apparently from the whole sample, which has that MoE, and not just from the respondents reached after Tuesday’s presser. Even if the toplines broke down the responses by day (it doesn’t), the sample taken on Tuesday evening and Wednesday would probably be to small for any reliable observations. The attempt to rely on Wednesday’s results alone is problematic at best, especially without seeing the entire daily breakdown. Perhaps they should have scrapped Monday and Tuesday’s responses and started fresh on Wednesday.

With that in mind, the results for Monday’s statement are not very promising. As noted above, majorities in every political demo thought Trump needed to do more after Saturday’s “all sides” statement, including 50/40 among Republicans. Fifty-one percent of Republicans also agreed that the car attack was a case of domestic terrorism. Overall, 60% of Republicans thought that Trump’s statements were “about right,” but two-thirds of the poll had been conducted before Tuesday’s statements. One has to wonder how much that may have eroded on Wednesday, but it seems pretty clear that most people probably got what they wanted on Monday, and that revisiting the issue was almost certainly an error.

In some ways, though, this is the same as it ever was:

Overall, Americans are more apt to say Mr. Trump’s policies have encouraged racial division rather than racial unity, but there are big partisan splits here, too, as Democrats see division and Republicans see no impact. Views on this appear to be entrenched for now, as these percentages are similar to what this poll found in April.

On that point, the question on Trump’s statements is also instructive. Among Democrats, 47% said Trump didn’t go far enough, while 34% said he went too far, which … doesn’t leave a lot of room for approval under any circumstances. (Among independents, it was 15% and 35% respectively.) In other words, there seems to be a lot of narrative validation going on, but even if that’s the case, then Trump isn’t succeeding in selling his narrative outside of his base.

For those keeping score, the weighted partisan D/R/I breakdown of the 1,223-respondent sample is 31/24/45 for a reasonable-ish D+7, with independents somewhat overweighted.

Update, 12:16 ET: CBS appears to have pulled this release from its poll. The link now goes to other questions in the same survey relating to North Korea. There is no explanation for this change at the link, either.

Update: They had just tweeted the story out an hour earlier, but the link now dead-ends.

In case they delete the tweet, here’s a screen-cap of it:

Update, 2:11 pm ET: Without any explanation, the link now directs to the original poll results on Charlottesville. The new story offers a bit more detail on the differences between Mon-Tue polling and Wednesday’s results. Strange that CBS News didn’t just update the post in place.
