President Biden on Thursday night at a CNN town hall in Baltimore made news as he discussed the future of the Senate filibuster, and the fate of his “Build Back Better” economic initiative. Biden has been forced to shed some progressive items in the bill to win the support of key moderates in the Senate, while at the same time trying to keep progressives on board. Key provision he has had to jettison include the long-promised tax increases on corporations and wealthy individuals. One person blocking increased taxes is Senator Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, who has emerged as a key player in the negotiations. In Virginia, the race is getting tighter, with education emerging as a key issue. Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe continues to lead in the RealClear Average of Polls, but newcomer Glenn Youngkin is surprising a lot of people. Some think he may be showing a way forward for the GOP in a post-Trumpcentric universe.

We discuss breaking deals and compromises in the historic Build Back Better negotiations in Congress. Will the Democrats be able to bring their two rogue Senators into line, or do their corporate paymasters want to sink reform? Is a smaller version of Build Back Better still worth having? Next, we discuss Wednesday's failed U.S. Senate vote on the Freedom to Vote Act, Senator Manchin's slimmed down version of electoral reform. Does the GOP use of the fillibuster to block even debating the bill mean Democrats can finally do away with the Jim Crow and slavery era relic? Back in the Badger State, Republicans release outrageously gerrymandered maps. Will Governor Evers step up and veto them? A national report ranks Wisconsin the state with the worst Black incarceration, and if things could not get even worse, the Senate GOP passes a pro-child labor bill. We close the show with a look at the GOP's national school board strategy to bully and remove school board members who stand up for public health, and GOP gubernatorial frontrunner Rebecca Kleefisch's role.

In today's episode, Chris contends that a lot of the noise around 'if' the reconciliation bill will get done is overly hyped. He thinks it's a given that the Dems will get it done,  it's more a question of what it will look like. But the same measure does not apply to the push for voting rights, after the Senate GOP torpedoed any chance of overriding the filibuster and reaching the 60 vote threshold to even debate Joe Manchin's paired down version. So where does this leave the Dems? The GOP?

“Fire Shut Up in My Bones” is the Metropolitan Opera's first production composed by a Black artist — Grammy winner Terence Blanchard. The show is based on the memoir by New York Times columnist Charles Blow, about his difficult childhood growing up in small-town Louisiana in the 1970s.  Blanchard tells KCRW that he could see himself in Blow's story: “There's a lot of things within that family life that people don't talk about. While there's a strong sense of community, sometimes you have to find your own way because that community can stifle you, not in an intentional way. But you have to be strong and stick to your guns.” Meanwhile, off the coast of LA, more than 100 ships are waiting to offload their cargo, and thousands of foreign workers are stuck at sea. And the LA City Council this week approved sweeps of homeless camps in 54 locations.  In the Senate on Capitol Hill, all 50 Republicans voted against debating the bill that would've made Election Day a federal holiday and allowed automatic and same-day voter registration. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer now says he plans to introduce separate legislation as soon as next week.

Colorado's Independent Legislative Redistricting Commission capped a months-long process when it sent its final state House and Senate maps to the state Supreme Court. Now it will be up to the Colorado Supreme Court to decide whether the maps submitted pass constitutional muster. Parties have until noon on Friday to submit comments for or against the legislative maps. That court hears oral arguments on Oct. 25, and has until Nov. 15 to approve the three maps, or send them back to the legislative commission for changes. Tatiana Flowers, the Colorado Sun's new equity reporter talks to Politics Team Reporters, Sandra Fish and Thy Vo (TEE-VOH) about the process and the next steps.

The economics of the proposed spending of two major infrastructure bills along with a debate over raising the debt celling is playing out in Congress.  There are three separate but important things happening. The first is the $1.2 trillion physical infrastructure bill that passed the Senate and waits action in the House.  The second is the broader $3.5 trillion human infrastructure bill that comprises much of President Joe Biden's political agenda. That measure is being scaled back because of concerns raised by both Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va.  Third, Congress still needs to raise the debt celling to approve borrowing for previous spending. The deadline for that is in early December, and if Congress fails to raise the debt figure, it could create chaos in global financial markets. For now, Senate Republicans want Senate Democrats to pass that provision without their support.   How does all the proposed Congress spending impact the nation's and Arizona's economy?  In this week's episode of The Gaggle, an Arizona politics podcast, hosts Yvonne Wingett Sanchez and Ronald J. Hansen speak with Arizona State University economics professor Dennis Hoffman. He breaks down how the long term investments could impact Arizonans.

That is criminal and I hope he sues, wins, and buys his former Athletic Director a backbone. My friend, Steve Deace, texted me this article, so hold onto your hats: Marine veteran wants to sue Walmart after pharmacist denied him access to ivermectin https://www.theblaze.com/news/marine-veteran-sue-walmart-pharmacist-ivermectin According to the Blaze: “A retired marine from Albert Lea, Minnesota, wants to take Walmart to court after a pharmacist refused to fill his doctor's prescription for ivermectin to treat his case of COVID-19. Bill Salier, a Marine Corps veteran who served in Somalia and a former U.S. Senate candidate, shared his story Monday on the "Steve Deace Show," describing how a local Walmart pharmacist refused to fulfill a doctor's prescription for ivermectin for both him and his wife, who had each come down with COVID-19. Salier, 53, told BlazeTV host Steve Deace that he began feeling sick on Oct. 1, and after testing he was found positive for COVID-19. After his diagnosis, Salier said he attempted to receive monoclonal antibody treatments by applying through the Minnesota Resource Allocation Platform, but his requests went unanswered. "We never so much as heard a word back, not even in acknowledgement that the requests had been put in," Salier said. Failing that, Salier obtained a doctor's prescription for ivermectin… "The prescription was sent in to our local Walmart, here in Albert Lea, Minnesota, and it was refused to be filled by the pharmacist. This pharmacist contacted my wife, telling her that he would not fill it. My wife stated that he did not have the right to stand between our physician's prescription and the patent, he asserted that he did have that right and he refused to do so," Salier said. Salier says he and his wife were left in "limbo" after the pharmacist continued to deny them access to ivermectin, even after their physician called him to discuss the matter. "We were faced with either continuing to suffer and quite possibly ending up in the hospital," he told Deace, explaining that they decided to take a risk and purchased a horse paste version of the drug that is not intended for human consumption and could be dangerous if overdosed. "I was forced with this decision and I was either going to lay there, suffer, and be at life's peril of losing my time with my family, or I was going to eat that horse paste. And down the hatch it went," Salier said. Fortunately, Salier did not overdose and reported to Deace that "within eight hours" he began to feel relief from his COVID-19 symptoms. Now, he says he wants a reckoning with Walmart and the pharmacist who denied him access to ivermectin. "If you ever wanted to find out what it is to punch a Marine in the face and what type of response you're gonna get, well, America, you're about to see the type of response that you get. Because if you take on me and my family, and you stand between our physician and the health care that they have prescribed to me as a life-saving thing — in my opinion that is what it did — then you have got a fight on your hands and I am coming for that fight." Salier is partnering with We the Patriots USA, a nonprofit organization that defends civil liberties, to raise money to file a federal lawsuit against the pharmacist and Walmart.” Mission First Coffee: "Calling all coffee lovers!

First to receive emergency use authorization in the United States, the Pfizer shot has become the world's most popular, with 3.5 billion doses purchased. Sales could double in 2022, according to projections. Analytics firm Airfinity this week predicted Pfizer will sell $54.5 billion worth of coronavirus vaccine next year, almost twice the value of Moderna's sales. In the article I could only find one country and its related pricing: “Brazil signed a $1 billion contract with the drug giant for 100 million doses. “ “Pfizer has formalized 73 deals for its coronavirus vaccine. According to Transparency International, a London-based advocacy group, only five contracts have been formally published by governments, and these with “significant redactions.”” John Piper finally chimes in on the vaccine debate, and the title of his post is: “A Reason to Be Vaccinated: Freedom” https://www.desiringgod.org/articles/a-reason-to-be-vaccinated-freedom He begins the article with: “My aim in this article is to encourage Christians to be vaccinated, if they can do so with a good conscience and judicious medical warrant.” And because I really do like John Piper, I am not going to read the rest of the article to you and further damage the respect I have for him...Ugh. The Biden administration is rolling back its awful bank-account-monitoring proposal but the new plan is pretty bad too https://notthebee.com/article/the-biden-administration-is-rolling-back-its-awful-bank-account-monitoring-proposal-but-the-new-plan-is-pretty-bad-too According to Not the Bee: “We all know that for months now the Biden administration has had grand designs for closely monitoring pretty much every single private bank account in the United States. Well, the backlash to that plan was so strong that Washington Democrats have retreated to an alternative proposal, but frankly that one stinks too:” According to the Wall Street Journal: https://www.wsj.com/articles/irs-bank-reporting-democrats-11634658560 “Democrats are trying to salvage the Biden administration's proposal to expand annual bank-account reporting to the Internal Revenue Service, fighting uphill against mounting opposition from the financial-services industry and Republicans. Sens. Ron Wyden (D., Ore.) and Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) will detail an updated version of the tax-compliance plan on Tuesday that will include a $10,000 annual threshold before reports are required, according to prepared remarks from Mr. Wyden. That is an increase from the administration's broader floor, which would include accounts with at least $600 in inflows, outflows or transactions.” Dont we have a right to privacy? Should the number not be $10,000 or $600, but zero, zilch, zip? Portland sets new homicide record, uses traffic barrels to combat drive-by shootings https://www.foxnews.com/us/portland-oregon-sets-new-homicide-record According to Fox News: “The number of homicides in Portland has now surpassed its previous annual record of 66, set in 1987 – and there are still more than two months to go in the calendar year. As of Tuesday, Oregon's largest city has recorded 67 killings so far this year, three-quarters of which have been carried out by firearms, according to the Associated Press. The total number of shootings – around 1,000 – has also left an additional 314 people injured. Nationally, homicides increased by nearly 30% from 2019 to 2020, based on FBI data. However, in Portland, deadly violence is increasing at a faster rate than nearly all major cities, with an 83% increase in homicides in 2020, according to the Associated Press. Portland has seen more homicides in 2021 than some larger cities, including San Francisco, and it's had twice as many slayings as its larger Pacific Northwest neighbor, Seattle. Other hard-hit Western cities include the Albuquerque, New Mexico, metro area, which has about 679,000 residents and has seen a record 97 homicides this year. Portland police have struggled to quell the violence, with the bureau 128 officers below authorized strength. Since August 2020, about 200 officers have left the department. Many, in their exit interviews, cited low morale, lack of support from city officials and burnout from months of racial justice protests, which often ended in plumes of tear gas and confrontation but have largely died down since last summer.” Closing This is Gabriel Rench with Crosspolitic News.

317 votes decided this delegate race in 2017 and 2019 combined.

The difference in votes between Del. Roxann Robinson (R-HD27) and her Democratic opponent for the last two elections combined is 317 votes. But after losing by 189 votes in 2019, Democrats are hoping that their efforts this year will help them defeat Robinson, the Chesterfield district's representative in the House since 2010. Chesterfield has been trending left in recent years with a blue wave in 2017 and 2019 that resulted in 21 House seats flipping from Republican to Democrat. But while momentum was on their side with Donald Trump in office, Democrats were still unable to win in this district. Debra Gardner is the candidate looking to get them over the hump this year, even as strategists fear lower Democratic turnout across the commonwealth. Gardner began her career as a social worker and eventually worked at state agencies serving as a liaison to the General Assembly. “I have spent my 30-year career working to help marginalized communities, advocating for fair and equal rights for everybody and just trying to make the quality of life better for the people in my community,” Gardner said in an interview with Virginia Scope Tuesday. Her plan for making up the small margin of votes that Democrats have repeatedly lost by is to increase the number of voters participating in the next election. “I started out by trying to bring more voters into the fold because, in all honesty, this is a 50/50 district,” Gardner said. “So what we needed to do in my opinion was expand our voter base.”  She says her campaign has been assisted by the grassroots activists in Liberal Women of Chesterfield County (LWCC), a group that grew to prominence under the leadership of Kim Drew Wright when she began meetings after Trump's election. LWCC's membership expanded quickly and mobilized to help both the Democrats in 2017 and Abigail Spanberger in 2018 as she won a historically Republican congressional district. The group is still functioning today, knocking doors and writing postcards for Democrats across the area. “We have mobilized that contingency of LWCC and got them out knocking doors,” Gardner said. “We have one of the most extensive postcard writing organizations that is out here.”She also noted that the Texas abortion ban that went into effect last month really helped motivate Democrats and galvanize the grassroots. “Choice is a major issue in this area,” Gardner said of tracking polls from the district.Republicans are optimistic heading into the November statewide elections after losing the previous two governor races. Additionally, the Democrats have won every Senate race during the same time period, leaving Republicans in a statewide victory drought since 2009. But with two years of complete Democratic control in the state government and a Democratic White House, Republicans hope the enthusiasm on their side can help them make up for the 10 points that Biden defeated Trump by last year. The GOP ticket has narrowed its focus on education issues in the suburbs. “​​If this election is about the battle for the suburbs, Chesterfield county is Ground Zero,” said Richard Meagher, associate professor of political science at Randolph Macon College. “This race is really about the broader political environment. If the Republicans have any hope of winning in this state in the future, then this is exactly the kind of race they need to win.”
