Here And There with Dave Marash

As he turned into the homestretch of his second and final season as California’s Governor, Jerry Brown created a suitable occasion to celebrate an important aspect of his work: a Global Climate Action Summit,  Mark Hertsgaard of The Nation covered the event and spoke with Brown and considers how Green Was this Governor?  And then there’s the question many of the Summit attendees were pondering -- how long will Green Spring politics survive in the coal, gas and oil-fired winter of Donald Trump?

Here in NM, and many other places in America, the recent midterm elections burned through more money than ever before.  This is a record with the endurance of a sandcastle.  So, from where and whom is the money coming from? and is it paying off in votes? Dave Levinthal led a team of reporters from the Center for Public Integrity to answer these questions. Fortunately for us, the answers are complicated and interesting. Like are a lot of little skinny financial supporters better than a small bunch of big fat ones?

Veterans Day, one of our national occasions to remember, to honor, all who served and to consider the causes in which our veterans have been asked to fight.  The holiday is an important reminder to remember.  Too few public reminders mean a lot of Hispanic-American history will be lost from America’s memory.  Union leader Cesar Chavez’ childhood home could disappear, another reason not to know about one of the most important Americans of the 20th century. Russell Contreras of the Associated Press tells the story, in depth on HERE & THERE

First the New York Times revealed that Donald Trump’s fortune wasn’t built by himself, but with hundreds of million  of dollar given him by his father.  Now, Heather Vogell of Pro Publica has led an 8 month investigation of the Trump family’s real estate dealings.  As you might expect, it’s not a pretty picture. The Trumps say they just lent their name to projects, but Heather says her team’s investigation showed the Trumps were more deeply involved and helped mislead investors and buyers — and profited handsomely.
