And President Biden is pushing his agenda forward on the road, as House and Senate Democrats continue to negotiate his human infrastructure plan. But ahead of the holidays, COVID-19 cases are spiking in some areas. Peter Baker, Yamiche Alcindor, Chuck Rosenberg, Juanita Tolliver, A.B. Stoddard and Dr. Irwin Redlener join.
President Trump's former advisor Steve Bannon is being charged with two misdemeanors for ignoring subpoenas and failing to turn over documents to the January 6th commission.

Ghost guns are no longer hiding in the shadows. They're becoming more popular than ever for criminals looking to avoid detection. They have no serial numbers and can be easily assembled at home from parts ordered online. They're becoming a big problem here in California. The big international climate change conference has wrapped up in Scotland. Was anything substantial actually accomplished? Did devil-worshipping lead to the Astroworld disaster at the Travis Scott concert? We get into all the rumors and misinformation surrounding the crowd surge. California's economy is trying to recover from the pandemic but it hasn't been easy. We look into how the new infrastructure bill out of Washington D.C. could help. Steve Bannon surrenders after getting hit with contempt charges for defying a subpoena to appear before the January 6th Commission. He promises a fight. Does he have a chance? Maybe.

On the exact same day Steve Bannon was criminally indicted for contempt of Congress, Mark Meadows refused to appear in violation of a congressional subpoena, thereby committing the crime of . . . contempt of Congress. Congress must now vote to hold Meadows in contempt and refer him for prosecution. This video reviews the way subpoenas work, how one goes about LAWFULLY asserting a privilege (spoiler alert - not by flat out refusing to appear), and why Meadows' attorney's claim that "the matter of executive privilege must be litigated in court" is NOT how it works. Accordingly, just as was the case with Bannon, we are now on Mark Meadows Indictment Watch.

Steve Bannon, a former adviser to former President Trump, has just been indicted on contempt of Congress charges after defying a Jan. 6th Committee subpoena. This comes as another top figure in the Trump administration will defy a subpoena from the committee. Winter is coming and it could be ugly again.

This has us all wondering if we're in for another surge and, if so, how bad will this one be? People keep quitting their jobs at record pace.

Notas en inglés y español⬇️November 7: Keeping the faith in the midst of tyrants.Psalms 53:1-6: The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; there is none who does good. God looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any who understand, who seek God. Every one of them has turned aside; they have together become corrupt; there is none who does good, no, not one. Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge, who eat up my people as they eat bread, and do not call upon God? There they are in great fear where no fear was, for God has scattered the bones of him who encamps against you; You have put them to shame, because God has despised them.Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When God brings back the captivity of His people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.When we were studying Psalm 14, we were comparing this psalm with psalm 53 which is the one we are studying today. The two have many similarities; they are practically the same throughout the context of the psalm, and the theme is the same about the fool who denies God in his life. I invite you to look for that devotional on September 29 and listen or read the reflection of that day entitled "The beginning of foolishness". On that occasion we look at how the human being every time he tries to remove God from his life is really inflicting pain, misery, confusion and death; because the Lord is the source of life and the One who gives us a purpose to exist. It is impossible to remove God from the life of the human being and from society; understanding that God is the center of everything because through Him, from Him and for Him all things were made. When a society takes God out, chaos, injustices and death are formed. All the countries that declare themselves atheists or anti-theists tried to get God out of society, and what was left were dictator leaders who seized power and stayed there for decades, and everyone who opposed them was sent to jail or killed. They started a political but also religious persecution because those who have biblical values oppose the injustices of the tyrant rulers; in many countries to this day there is persecution against Christians. A nation or society without principles or values is a society where human life is worth nothing. Examples of these governments that have brought God out are North Korea, China and many more that control their population, not only economically but also ideologically, preventing the people from giving opinions on their own ideas, and it is a crime to protest against the leaders and the government that dominates them.If you are living in a nation where you can freely express yourself and proclaim your faith without endangering your life, thanks God for the privilege of freely worshiping God; that is a sign that you live in a place where the basic freedoms that a human being should have are still kept in the midst of so much corruption and evil in the world. But not only do you see the persecution and destruction that comes from leaders of nations and countries, in general, the wicked always have the intention of destroying whoever is in front of their path. The apostle Paul described the attitudes of the wicked in the epistle to the Romans, chapter 3, verse 10 to 18, and mentioned some verses of this psalm and other passages of Scripture: “As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one; there is none who understands; there is none who seeks after God. They have all turned aside; they have together become unprofitable; there is none who does good, no, not one.” “Their throat is an open tomb; with their tongues they have practiced deceit”; “the poison of asps is under their lips”; “whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.”“Their feet are swift to shed blood; destruction and misery are in their ways; and the way of peace they have not known.” “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”However, the psalmist kept the hope and wrote prophetically. He saw evildoers being broken, and when they acted fearlessly, he saw them run away in terror. That's how it is! In the end, the Lord is a just God, and He will rise up to defend His children. This is how we have seen it in the Jews, how God has protected them during cruel extermination attempts for many centuries and a great remnant of them still stands.We have also seen how the Lord has kept the church of Jesus Christ that has also suffered persecution through the centuries but the church still stands.You are not the exception. Injustice and hatred against everything that is called God is everywhere. Contempt against the Bible and the worship of Jesus Christ will always be there anywhere. However, we will remain firm and see the justice of God act mightily. Let us always maintain the confidence of the apostle Paul in all difficult circumstances, who firmly said: "in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us." And he also said that nothing and no one can separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.Consider this:Do you know of a fool who despises you for being a Christian?How do you react when you suffer injustice?I am your friend and brother Eduardo Rodríguez. May the Lord hear your prayer and give you strength in the midst of injustices.========ESPAÑOL
Jeffrey Clark, a former Justice Department official involved in former President Donald J. Trump's frenzied efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election, refused to cooperate on Friday with the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, leading to a sharp rebuke from the committee's chairman. The standoff between Mr. Clark and the committee is the second such confrontation since Congress began investigating the circumstances surrounding the Capitol violence, seeking information on Mr. Trump's attempts to subvert the election. The House has already voted to find one Trump ally, Stephen K. Bannon, in criminal contempt of Congress for stonewalling the inquiry. Under federal law, any person summoned as a congressional witness who refuses to comply can face a misdemeanor charge that carries a fine of $100 to $100,000 and a jail sentence of one month to one year.

Chris, Melanie, and Zack debate Madeleine Albright's recent article on “The Coming Democratic Revival” in Foreign Affairs. They discuss whether the United States is in a position to promote democracy and push back against autocracy abroad, or whether it needs to focus primarily on its own democratic institutions and processes. Melanie commends Nancy Mace for holding Steve Bannon to account. Chris calls out President Joe Biden for his recent confusing statement on Taiwan. And Zack remembers Colin Powell for a life well lived. Links: Madeleine K.

This week, Josh Barro and Ken White catch up on a few familiar characters and tie up some loose threads. Lev Parnas, former associate of Rudy Giuliani: convicted of six counts of charges related to funneling and concealing political contributions. There was speculation about whether Parnas himself would take the stand — Ken talks about when that's a good idea and when that's very much not a good idea. Michael Avenatti: still a free man for now, but indicted on four sets of trials, and one of them ended in a mistrial several weeks ago. The government failed to disclose some evidence and now Avenatti is entitled to a new trial with that new evidence. But Avenatti is making a double jeopardy claim: that he has a constitutional right not to be tried twice. This is a thin argument — Avenatti may be working another strategy — and long story short, the Ninth Circuit agreed to a expedited briefing schedule. John Eastman, lawyer and author of the now-infamous (at least to our listeners) Eastman memo laying out how Vice President Mike Pence could maneuver to keep Trump in office: sitting for extended interviews about the circumstances of that memo and whether it reflected his views. Was he acting as a lawyer in those moments? And would that be a shield for him? Steve Bannon, former Trump adviser and pardon recipient: held in criminal contempt by the House of Representatives and referred to the Department of Justice. What does that mean? And is it a boatload of work for the DC U.S. Attorney's office, which has its proverbial hands full with January 6 prosecutions?
On Thursday, October 21st, the House of Representatives voted to hold Steve Bannon in Contempt of Congress and referred him to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. All eyes now turn to the Bannon Indictment Watch. Fortunately, there is precedent on this precise issue: in 1983, Congress voted to hold EPA official Rita Lavelle in contempt of Congress, referred her for prosecution and, just 9 days later, the US Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia had the grand jury indict Ms. Lavelle for contempt of Congress. This historical precedent proves that justice need not be delayed. Attorney General Merrick Garland should take note of this historical precedent and move swiftly toward indicting Steve Bannon for the crime he inarguably committed.

Arthur Brooks is an economist who for 10 years ran the American Enterprise Institute, one of the most influential conservative think tanks in the world.
