Congress avoided a government shutdown after Senate conservatives dropped their demands to nix President Joe Biden's vaccine mandates in the funding bill — and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer gave them a way out.  Conservatives will argue they got something out of this drama: a vote on their issue. In reality, it was a face-saving measure. The far-right started out demanding that Congress effectively scuttle the mandates, then reduced their ask to a mere vote they knew would fail, ensuring smooth passage of a continuing resolution a full 30 hours before the shutdown deadline.  Listen and subscribe to Playbook Deep Dive Raghu Manavalan is the host of POLITICO's Playbook.

Energy prices have become a major burden for both consumers and the Biden administration.  The soaring gas prices have even forced the President to recently urge OPEC to increase oil production.  Several lawmakers, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, are encouraging the administration to tap into the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and reverse some of their policies they say have exacerbate the problem.  Earlier in the week, Republican Congressman John R. Curtis of Utah's 3rd Congressional District joined host Jessica Rosenthal to discuss the high energy prices Americans are facing and why he believes the Biden administration has been offering the wrong solutions.  The Congressman also explained why Republicans must have a seat at the table during discussions surrounding climate issues.

“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.

How Trustworthy Are American Elections? Elliot Ackerman Joins the Discussion on Restoring Faith in The Electoral Process

Next week, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer plans to send a new voting rights bill to the Senate Floor. It is the latest attempt to “fix” the American electoral process, and it raises questions about what is exactly wrong, what can be done to improve faith in election results, and who wins and who loses from changing the way we vote. One thing we do know is that a lot of Americans don't trust election results. A Gallup poll from 2020 shows that only forty percent of Americans say they are confident in the honesty of US elections. Only one-third of Republican voters believe that the 2020 presidential election was “free and fair,” and after the 2016 contest, 28 percent of Democrats expressed skepticism that the votes had been counted accurately. So how bad is it? Are elections truly untrustworthy or is this a perception problem borne of political opportunism – where if you don't like the results, you attack the referee? RealClearPolitics co-founder and president Tom Bevan, senior elections analyst Sean Trende, and Elliot Ackerman, author of “2034: A Novel of the Next Word War,” co-written with Admiral James Stavridis, join Andrew Walworth on today's RealClearPolitics Takeaway podcast.

Greg Abbott on Monday issued an executive order banning all state entities, including private employers, from enforcing vaccine mandates, the latest escalation in the Republican's resistance to public health measures during the Covid-19 pandemic. The order states that "no entity in Texas" can enforce vaccination against anyone in the state who objects "for any reason of personal conscience, based on a religious belief, or for medical reasons, including prior recovery from COVID-19," according to a news release from the governor's office. "The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and our best defense against the virus, but should remain voluntary and never forced," Abbott said in a statement. Abbott also called on the Texas state Legislature to pass a law with the same effect. The executive order would be rescinded upon the passage of such legislation, the governor's office said. Southwest, American among Texas businesses defying Abbott to comply with federal vaccine mandate https://www.statesman.com/story/business/2021/10/12/southwest-american-plan-ignore-abbott-comply-vaccine-mandate/8423456002/ Now according to the Satesman, there is a battle of the gods, and it looks like the federal god won: “Two of the national's largest airlines — Southwest Airlines and American Airlines — both based in Texas, said Tuesday they plan to follow looming federal guidelines and require that their employees are vaccinated against COVID-19, despite an order from Gov. Greg Abbott that attempts to block such mandates. Dallas-based Southwest Airlines last week ordered all of its estimated 55,000 employees to be vaccinated against COVID 19 by Dec. 8. That folowed a directive from President Joe Biden, who in September said all private companies with more than 100 workers must require employees to be vaccinated or conduct weekly tests for the coronavirus. Southwest said in a written statement Tuesday that the president's executive order “supersedes any state mandate or law,” saying the company is required to adhere to it despite Abbott's action “to remain compliant as a federal contractor.”” But listen to this. In the same article: “Amber Gunst, CEO of the Austin Technology Council, said most companies in Texas are unlikely to follow the governor's mandate. Employers don't have the option to defy OSHA standards, both for legal reasons and for insurance-related concerns, she said. "When the federal government comes in with OSHA and they say, 'this is what we need to do in order to keep employees safe,' companies have to follow those rules in order to be in compliance with OSHA, so I don't really feel that most companies are going to look at the mandate that the governor created and want to adhere to that," Gunst said. "Companies don't have an option to choose to not be in compliance with OSHA. They will have a very strict, and steep price to pay if they're not in compliance with OSHA." Gunst said she thinks most companies will see Abbott's order "as a nuisance that the governor has created." The question is a nuisance to who? Who is being the nuisance? Who is forcing people to vax? The Wallstree Journal captures this gem: https://www.wsj.com/articles/covid-19-vaccine-mandate-fight-between-texas-and-biden-has-companies-caught-in-the-middle-11634073605 “The Greater Houston Partnership, which represents some 900 companies including Exxon Mobil Corp., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Chevron Corp. and Accenture PLC, said Tuesday that Mr. Abbott's order would make it more difficult for Texas businesses to operate safely. The organization has been generally supportive of Mr. Biden's efforts to require vaccines for large employers.” Texas companies are showing more loyalty to the federal government, than to their state. We be tripp'n. Joe Biden's Vaccine Mandate Doesn't Exist. It's Just A Press Release https://thefederalist.com/2021/10/07/joe-bidens-vaccine-mandate-doesnt-exist-its-just-a-press-release/?s=04#.YV9Ab7sLmEY.twitter According to Joy Pullmann over at The Federalist: “Yes, we've heard all about Joe Biden's alleged vaccine mandate for private companies employing 100 or more people. It was all over the news even before he announced it on September 9. His announcement has jeopardized the employment of millions of Americans and increased worker shortages in critical domains such as health care. There's only one problem. It's all a mirage. Biden's so-called vaccine mandate doesn't exist — at least, not yet. So far, all we have is his press conference and other such made-for-media huff-puffing. No such rule even claiming to be legally binding has been issued yet. That's why nearly two dozen Republican attorneys general who have publicly voiced their opposition to the clearly unconstitutional and illegal mandate haven't yet filed suit against it, the Office of the Indiana Attorney General confirmed for me. There is no mandate to haul into court. And that may be part of the plan. According to several sources, so far it appears no such mandate has been sent to the White House's Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs yet for approval. The White House, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Department of Labor haven't released any official guidance for the alleged mandate. There is no executive order. There's nothing but press statements. Despite what you may have been falsely led to believe by the media fantasy projection machine, press statements have exactly zero legal authority. To impose the public perception of a mandate, the Biden administration is following an unusual rule-making process it also employed earlier this year, called an emergency temporary standard (ETS). The spring ETS rule took nearly six months to issue. Meanwhile, companies are telling reporters their vaccine mandates will have at the latest December deadlines. (For those who can't calendar, that's four months after Biden's non-existent mandate was proclaimed. According to OSHA, an ETS takes up to six months to go into effect after the initial mandate is issued in the Federal Register — which, again, for the proclaimed 100-employee mandate hasn't happened yet.) Lawyers for big business were blunt about their love for this mandate mirage: “Everybody loves this cover,” Minneapolis employment lawyer Kate Bischoff told Bloomberg Law in September. “Many were already looking down the road at doing this, but the fact that they get to blame Biden is like manna from heaven.” Using the ETS procedure instead of normal federal rule-making processes both allows the Biden administration to push its demands faster and without any public input or requirement of responding to public input, which is normally required of even legally laughable federal rule-making like this one would be. That is part of why ETS rules have been overwhelmingly overturned in courts. Earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal published a letter from Bruce Atkinson making several excellent observations about the nonexistent mandate, including the following:” “The mandate's nonexistence shields the Biden administration from legal challenges that may ultimately restrict the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's authority. Yet the mandate is still effective at compelling industries and companies into compliance, as it leaves room for any eventual issuance to target noncompliant entities. This implied cudgel is particularly effective on industries and companies that are dependent on federal spending or the goodwill of federal regulators. The nonexistent mandate also allows so-inclined state and local governments and companies to issue their own mandates, seemingly in lockstep with Washington. The Biden White House has been well-served by presenting a nonexistent mandate as a done deal.” Guitar AD Have you always wanted to play guitar but didn't know where to start?

A record 4.3 million workers quit their jobs in August, led by food and retail industries https://www.cnbc.com/2021/10/12/a-record-4point3-million-workers-quit-their-jobs-in-august-led-by-food-and-retail-industries.html According to CNBC: “Workers left their jobs at a record pace in August, with bar and restaurant employees as well as retail staff quitting in droves, the Labor Department reported Tuesday. Quits hit a new series high going back to December 2000, as 4.3 million workers left their jobs. The quits rate rose to 2.9%, an increase of 242,000 from the previous month, which saw a rate of 2.7%, according to the department's Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey. The rate, which is measured against total employment, is the highest in a data series that goes back to December 2000. Quits have been seen historically as a level of confidence from workers who feel they are secure in finding employment elsewhere, though labor dynamics have changed during Covid-19 crisis. Workers have left their jobs because of health concerns and child care issues unique to the pandemic's circumstances. A total of 892,000 workers in the food service and accommodation industries left their jobs, while 721,000 retail workers departed along with 534,000 in health care and social assistance. “As job openings and hires fell in August, the quits rate hit a new series high, surging along with the rise in Covid cases and likely growing concerns about working in the continuing pandemic,” said Elise Gould, senior economist at the Economic Policy Institute.” Now two questions for me arise out of this information. Why are these people quitting, and where are they going? I could not dig up the answer for where these quitters went, and the best answer I could dig up for why they are quitting coming from the Business, Insider where they speculate: https://www.businessinsider.com/over-4-million-workers-quit-record-labor-shortage-great-resignation-2021-10 “Workers are likely quitting over work conditions, pay, the virus, or contemplation of their lives.” Bottom line is the government has created a catawampus economy, and screws up all the incentives, this makes it hard to understand what is really going on here. Pelosi signals big spending package will shrink to $2 trillion https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/congress/pelosi-signals-2-trillion-spending-bill Facing intractable opposition from party centrists, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democrats will have to “make tighter decisions” on a massive social welfare spending package that is stalled in Congress. Pelosi, a California Democrat, acknowledged in a press conference Tuesday that the $3.5 trillion package planned by Democrats will have to shrink to about $2 trillion, telling reporters, “The fact is there are fewer dollars to spend, there are choices to be made, and the members have said let's get the results we need, but we will not diminish the transformative nature of what it is.” Pelosi, in a memo to Democrats late Monday, told them caucus members are calling for a spending package that will “do fewer things well so that we can still have a transformative impact on families in the workplace and responsibly address the climate crisis.” Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, set an Oct. 31 deadline to advance the package. Tight race in Virginia gubernatorial showdown with three weeks until election https://www.foxnews.com/politics/virginia-gubernatorial-showdown-three-weeks-until-election Tuesday marks three weeks to go until Election Day in Virginia, and the top-of-the- ticket race remains an extremely close contest in one of just two states to hold gubernatorial elections in the year after a presidential contest. An average of the latest polls in the race indicates that former Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe – who's running for his old job – holds a slight, single-digit edge over Republican nominee Glenn Youngkin in a state that President Biden won by 10 points in last year's election and where Republicans haven't won a statewide contest in a dozen years. The margin-of-error race in Virginia – a one-time key battleground but still competitive state which is seen as a key bellwether ahead of the 2022 midterm elections – has national Democrats on edge as they defend their razor-thin majorities in the House of Representatives and Senate in next year's contests. "Folks, the Virginia Governor's race is a big deal not just for the Commonwealth but for our country," Biden wrote to supporters in a fundraising email. And McAuliffe asked in a fundraising email last week, "Are we blowing this?" Virginia and New Jersey's elections for governor always grab outsized attention as they're the only states to hold such contests the year after the presidency's decided. And there's a long-running trend of voters in the commonwealth defeating the gubernatorial nominee of the party that controls the White House. McAuliffe broke with that tradition in 2013 with his election as governor. McAuliffe was unable to run for reelection in 2017 because Virginia governors are barred from serving two straight terms. And the McAuliffe campaign announced on Tuesday that the biggest name of all - former President Obama - will team up with the former governor on Oct. 23.

The Supreme Court will hear arguments Dec. 1 in what some are saying is the biggest abortion-related case of the past four decades. Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization could result in the overturning of Roe v. Wade and the returning of power to the states to set their own abortion laws, as they did prior to the high court's 1973 ruling in Roe.“I feel very confident that we're going to win,” Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch says. Fitch, a Republican, has filed briefs with the Supreme Court asking the justices to deliver “strong clarity” on the issue of abortion in their ruling. The high-profile case goes back to a Mississippi law passed in 2018, which restricts abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Days after the bill passed, Jackson Women's Health Organization, the state's only abortion clinic, filed a lawsuit seeking to block the law, which was enjoined by a lower court and is currently in abeyance.Fitch joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain the significance of the case and what will happen to abortion laws across the country if the court upholds Mississippi's law.

Following the passage of numerous Republican-backed voting restrictions across the country, Democrats and left-leaning institutions are criticizing President Joe Biden, demanding a more aggressive plan to combat voting rights restrictions. Washington Post columnist EJ Dionne joined Boston Public Radio on Monday, weighing in on whether the criticism was deserved. “I am actually in the camp that says Biden has to do more,” Dionne said. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi met with President Biden in late July to discuss voting rights legislation, which Dionne labelled as “something of a victory.” “I don't think they read him the riot act, but I think they were very clear to him that this really matters to the party's chances in the future,” Dionne said. EJ Dionne is a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and a columnist for the Washington Post. His latest book is Code Red: How Progressives and Moderates Can Unite To Save Our Country.

Good Morning, Colorado, you're listening to the Daily Sun-Up with the Colorado Sun. It's Thursday July 15th.   Today - Given the potential for COVID-19 to spread in jails, Colorado law enforcement worked to reduce the number of people behind bars throughout the pandemic.   But now, with restrictions easing, many jails may be back to pre-pandemic levels in the near future.    But before we begin, let's go back in time with some Colorado history adapted from historian Derek R Everett's book “Colorado Day by Day”:   Today, we take you back to July 15th, 1943 when A deal between the federal departments of agriculture and war, authorized the US Army to use thousands of acres of the White River National Forest to train soldiers for winter mountain combat. The arrangement transformed Camp Hale into a facility specializing in combat on skis.   Now, our feature story.   With the potential for COVID-19 to spread quickly across tight quarters in Colorado jails, law enforcement took steps to decrease the number of people behind bars. But as communities lift pandemic restrictions, populations at many of the state's largest jails are inching back up and could jump back to pre-pandemic levels. As Colorado Sun reporter Olivia Prentzel tells Erica Breunlin, law enforcement is doing away with many of the changes to keep the census down, including some that kept petty criminals out of jail during the pandemic. But jurisdictions are also monitoring community cases of Covid and could reassess their protocols later this year.     To read more about Colorado's rebounding jail populations, visit coloradosun.com.   And Before we go, here are a few stories that you should know about today: Colorado Parks and Wildlife will outfit as many as 30 bald eagles with transmitters as part of a four-year study to determine how the protected raptors have adapted to rapid population growth along the Front Range and identify planning measures that could ensure the bird's future as that growth continues. The study will monitor nesting sites, food sources such as prairie dog colonies, reproduction and migration from the Denver area north to the Wyoming border. CPW estimates there are more than 90 breeding pairs of bald eagles in the corridor. There were none at the end of the 1970s.    Denver Water sued Boulder County in federal court Tuesday saying county officials are slow-walking decisions on plans to expand Gross Reservoir, threatening crucial federal permits and construction timelines. Denver Water says delay tactics, including repeating requests for information collected during the already completed federal permitting process, is endangering the $464 million project to raise the dam southwest of Boulder to add 77,000 acre-feet of water storage.   The U.S. Senate's top Democrat is backing a bill that would strike down a longstanding federal prohibition on marijuana. But a Colorado-led effort to give the legal cannabis industry access to banking could be placed in an indefinite holding pattern because of the more sweeping measure, which doesn't appear to have a path to passage. The bill backed by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer would treat marijuana much like alcohol or tobacco, allowing it to be taxed and regulated. The legalization push comes as Colorado's U.S. Representative Ed Perlmutter continues yearslong work to grant the legal marijuana industry access to banking through the SAFE Banking Act. Legal cannabis businesses have not been able to access full banking services because banks are federally regulated and marijuana remains federally illegal. New Jersey Senator Cory Booker also is a sponsor of the legalization bill and said he would not support the banking bill so long as the broader legislation is in play.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has released draft legislation aimed at decriminalizing marijuana at the federal level. Called the Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act, it would remove weed from the Controlled Substances Act and begin regulating and taxing it. It would still give states the power to set their own laws and would also expunge non-violent cannabis related arrests. Natalie Fertig, federal cannabis policy reporter at Politico, joins us for what to expect in the marijuana debate. Next, drug overdose deaths have risen sharply in the country by 30% in 2020 with over 93,000 deaths. A large driver of those deaths were the result of the synthetic opioid fentanyl as it has been frequently mixed into other drugs. The pandemic also played a role in this as people who were receiving treatment or wanted it had difficulty accessing it early on. Isolation and other life disruptions also fueled the uptick. Betsy McKay, senior writer at the WSJ, joins us for the rise in overdose deaths. Finally, public health officials are once again worried about superspreader events as we see lagging vaccination rates and rising Covid cases. With less mask wearing and social distancing, people are going out more and attending larger gatherings. Studies have shown that 10 percent of people infected with Covid could be responsible for 80 percent of the spread. Denise Chow, science reporter at NBC News, joins us for more.

The budget would then let them push a massive spending bill through the Senate without facing a GOP filibuster. Separately, senators from both parties also have agreed to a framework for a $1.2 trillion infrastructure package, which Schumer hopes will be approved in the Senate before the recess.

A Senate investigation of the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol found a broad intelligence breakdown across multiple agencies, along with widespread law enforcement and military failures that led to the violent attack.There were clear warnings and tips that supporters of former President Donald Trump, including right-wing extremist groups, were planning to "storm the Capitol" with weapons and possibly infiltrate the tunnel system underneath the building. But that intelligence never made it up to top leadership.The result was chaos. A Senate report released Tuesday details how officers on the front lines suffered chemical burns, brain injuries and broken bones, among other injuries, after fighting the attackers, who quickly overwhelmed them and broke into the building. Officers told the Senate investigators they were left with no leadership or direction when command systems broke down.The Senate report is the first — and could be the last — bipartisan review of how hundreds of Trump supporters were able to push violently past security lines and break into the Capitol that day, interrupting the certification of Joe Biden's presidential election victory. The failures detailed in the report highlighted how, almost 20 years after the Sept. 11 attacks, U.S. intelligence agencies are still beset by a fundamental issue: a failure of imagination.The report recommends immediate changes to give the Capitol Police chief more authority, to provide better planning and equipment for law enforcement and to streamline intelligence gathering among federal agencies.But as a bipartisan effort, the report does not delve into the root causes of the attack, including Trump's role as he called for his supporters to "fight like hell" to overturn his election defeat that day. It does not call the attack an insurrection, even though it was. And it comes two weeks after Republicans blocked a bipartisan, independent commission that would investigate the insurrection more broadly."This report is important in the fact that it allows us to make some immediate improvements to the security situation here in the Capitol," said Democratic Sen. Gary Peters of Michigan, the chair of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, which conducted the probe along with the Senate Rules Committee. "But it does not answer some of the bigger questions that we need to face, quite frankly, as a country and as a democracy."Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that the findings show an even greater need for a bipartisan commission to investigate the root causes of the attack, referring to Trump's unfounded claims about the 2020 election."As the 'big lie' continues to spread, as faith in our elections continues to decline, it is crucial — crucial — that we establish a trusted, independent record of what transpired," said Schumer, D-N.Y.But Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, who led the blockade against such a commission, said he's confident the ongoing reviews by lawmakers and law enforcement will be sufficient.The House in May passed legislation to create a commission that would be modeled after a panel that investigated the Sept. 11 attacks.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told colleagues in a letter Tuesday that if the Senate fails to approve the commission, her chamber will launch its own investigations.The top Republican on the rules panel, Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt, has opposed the commission, arguing that investigation would take too long. He said the recommendations made in the Senate can be implemented faster, such as legislation that he and Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, the rules committee chair, intend to introduce soon that would give the chief of Capitol Police more authority to request assistance from the National Guard.The Senate report recounts how the Guard was delayed for hours Jan. 6 as officials in multiple agencies took bureaucratic steps to release the troops.

American communities are being hard hit with increasing violent crimes, and too many Democrat politicians don't seem to think they have any solutions, except for one! Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announced publicly that the way to stop violent crime is to stop building jails and start building hospitals. Without question, not building jails is definitely one way to reduce the number of people being held in jails! A variety of New York City Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Rep. Jamaal Bowman, also attending this public announcement. She also thinks we should pay community organizers. (Isn't that part of the Democrat Party's system of operations, as Obama was a “community organizer” before becoming a politician.). What she really is doing is trying to “earmark” money for a hospital in her district.Stephen Parr explains AOC's idea of building fewer jails is not new, and definitely not a good idea! California had not build new prisons since the 1960's and by the 1980's, it had a serious over-population prison problem. So California decided build about half as many new prisons as it then actually needed. By 2011, the US Supreme Court ruled California inmates' 8th Amendment Rights were being violated by the extreme overcrowding. Louis Avallone also points out that 88 politicians have been murdered in Mexico since September, 2020! The lawlessness at the Southern Border, the Defund the Police movement, the irrational idea of building fewer prisons, and other destabilizing issues could make America an even more dangerous place. Politicians are putting even themselves at risk.If you have lived long enough, you have had opportunities to learn first-hand that life is not always fair. Everyone must deal with adversity at some point along the way. Our American Mama, Teri Netterville, shares her personal understanding that all of our “greats” in America have had to deal with adversity at some point. The keys are their perseverance of not giving up and their reliance on their God for support to get through the adversity. As Babe Ruth said, “It's hard to beat a person who never gives up.” Look for books about such Greats and start building your own personal library of inspiration.Power Causes Brain Damage….Power affects the part of the brain that processes empathy; so as you get power and you believe you deserve the power you have, your brain loses its ability to have empathy for other people. An excellent example of this is our Exhibit A: “Lord” Anthony Fauci, who lied, and as a result, people died.Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has notified the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) that unless substantial changes are made well in advance of any future Presidential elections, she will have “no choice but to advise future Republican candidates against participating in CPD-hosted debates.”  Presidential Debates are supposed to be a non-partisan and federally funded, but there is a long history of both the moderators and the CPD being very pro-Democrat, election after election. Journalist Yashar Ali said, “The people who make critical decisions about the country's presidential debates—events that impact how Americans will vote or if they vote at all—are, for the most part, elites who are part of the D.C.-New York clique known as the swamp,”Even with huge financial loses, professional sports just continues to “Be Woke”. Apparently, either they are too rich or don't learn from previous mistakes! Just respect the American Flag, the American Anthem, the American Military, and play ball. That is all we ask. Why would that be so hard for a bunch of rich athletes to do?In response to the NYT's 1619 Project to rewrite American History in a way that is not factually true, President Trump created the 1776 Commission in September, 2020. The 1776 Commission produced a report promoting Patriotic Education just before Biden was sworn in. It denounced identity politics, including Critical Race Theory, and focused on the self-evident truth that we are all created equal. Biden almost immediately removed the report from the White House website; but so many had already downloaded and then re-uploaded the report, making it impossible to “kill”. And the 1776 Commission members are determined to continue meeting to complete their work.

June 3, 2021: Democrats Pressure Manchin On Voting Rights; Sri Lanka Faces Environmental Disaster; Stimulus Checks Reduced Hunger, Anxiety

Welcome to Majority.FM's AM QUICKIE! Brought to you by justcoffee.coop TODAY'S HEADLINES: Democrats including President Joe Biden are losing patience with Senator Joe Manchin. He's waffling on supporting a nationwide voting rights package that could be crucial to the party's electoral future. Meanwhile, cleanup and containment efforts are underway off the coast of Sri Lanka, where a sinking container ship threatens environmental disaster. The beaches are suffocated with tiny plastic pellets, and now there are worries about an oil spill, as well. And lastly, the evidence is in on the effects of the stimulus checks that went out to Americans earlier this year, and guess what – they really helped people! It looks like there's something to the old saying that the problem with poor people is that they don't have enough money. THESE ARE THE STORIES YOU NEED TO KNOW: This spotlight on a weak link in the ruling Congressional coalition comes from the Washington Post. Democratic leaders and activists are stepping up pressure on Senator Joe Manchin to support legislation to fight Republican-led voting restrictions across the country. Party officials are concluding that the battle over voting rights could come down to what the centrist Democrat from West Virginia does. In a rare show of public frustration with his own party on Tuesday, President Biden appeared to lash out at Manchin when he accused a pair of unnamed senators of aligning too closely with Republicans and stalling efforts to pass sweeping voting standards. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer recently announced that his chamber would vote this month on a House-passed elections bill co-sponsored by every Democratic senator except Manchin – a move that would force Manchin to pick a side. Even some of Manchin's Democratic colleagues are beginning to prod him more aggressively to join their cause, while activists and civil rights leaders are loudly decrying his hesitation. According to the Post, Manchin has said his overriding concern is a lack of bipartisan support for the measure. But Democrats increasingly see an existential threat from Republican-led state governments determined to place new limits on voting, which critics say would disproportionately affect voters of color, a core part of the Democratic coalition. One Democratic congressional aide said panic is the right word to describe the mood in the party. By all rights, though, Manchin is the one who should be sweating. Sri Lanka Faces Environmental Disaster This is just tragic. NBC News reports that a cargo ship laden with chemicals sank yesterday after nearly two weeks ablaze off the west coast of Sri Lanka, worsening fears of a major environmental disaster. The vessel has already left the country's coastline covered in tons of plastic pellets and now threatens to spill oil into its rich fishing waters. The government has banned fishing, a crucial industry, along fifty miles of coast in the wake of the incident. Authorities have also deployed hundreds of soldiers to clean affected beaches and warned residents not to touch the debris because it could be contaminated with harmful chemicals. Where there was once gold sand and coconut trees, there is now a sea of plastic waste. A Sri Lankan Navy spokesman told NBC News yesterday that an effort to tow the ship into deeper waters was not successful and had to be abandoned halfway through. Silva said there was water inside the ship and their main concern was the possibility of an oil spill, although they had not yet observed any oil slicks. The fire-ravaged ship was transporting one thousand four hundred and eight six containers, including twenty five tons of nitric acid, along with other chemicals and cosmetics. As the fire was being extinguished, flaming containers laden with chemicals had fallen from the ship's deck or broken open on the deck, spilling their cargo into the sea. It shows how our economic system sometimes does damage that cannot be undone. Stimulus Checks Reduced Hunger, Anxiety This social science deep dive comes from the New York Times. In offering Americans two rounds of stimulus checks in the past six months, totaling $2,000 a person, the government effectively conducted a huge experiment in safety net policy. A new analysis of Census Bureau surveys argues that the two latest rounds of aid significantly improved Americans' ability to buy food and pay household bills and reduced anxiety and depression. The largest benefits went to the poorest households and those with children. The analysis offers the fullest look at hardship reduction under the stimulus aid. Among households with children, reports of food shortages fell forty two percent from January through April. A broader gauge of financial instability fell forty three percent. Among all households, frequent anxiety and depression fell by more than twenty percent. The largest declines in measures of hardship coincided with the $600 checks that reached most people in January and the $1,400 checks mostly distributed in April. According to the Times, the aggressive use of stimulus checks coincides with growing interest in broad cash payments as a tool in social policy. The evidence that they can have an immediate effect on the economic strains afflicting many households could influence that debate. Starting in July, the government will mail up to $300 a month per child to most families in a yearlong expansion of the child tax credit that Democrats want to make permanent. But this research raises another question: Why not two grand for everyone, every month? AND NOW FOR SOME QUICKER QUICKIES: CNN reports that the US military has apologized after soldiers accidentally stormed a factory in Bulgaria during a training exercise last month. The factory produces machinery for making olive oil. Luckily, no weapons were fired. Bulgarian President Rumen Radev condemned the incident and said he expects there will be an investigation. It's like a Three Stooges routine about US imperialism. According to the Guardian, the climate crisis is causing a widespread fall in oxygen levels in lakes across the world, suffocating wildlife and threatening drinking water supplies. A study, published in the journal Nature, analysed data collected from nearly four hundred lakes worldwide. Humanity is really doing a number on marine life, maybe we should ease up. The Associated Press reports that the NFL yesterday pledged to halt the use of race- norming – which assumed Black players started out with lower cognitive function – in the $1 billion settlement of brain injury claims. The league will also review past scores for any potential race bias. More than two thousand NFL retirees have filed dementia claims, but fewer than six hundred have received awards. And this racist policy was one reason why. The Washington Post reports that Donald Trump's blog, celebrated by advisers as a beacon of freedom that would keep him relevant, is dead. It was twenty nine days old. Upset by reports highlighting its measly readership, Trump ordered his team Tuesday to put the blog out of its misery. My kingdom for a verified Twitter account!

In the days immediately following the violent storming of the Capitol in January, Republican lawmakers came forward with an idea: Why not set up a bipartisan commission, similar to the one established after 9/11, to sort through the facts and determine how such a chaotic event happened?  But now it appears that type of investigation might not happen. A bill to establish such a commission passed the House last week with support from every Democrat and 35 Republicans. GOP party leaders strongly oppose the bill, and most Republican senators said they will block it this week if Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer forces a vote.  Thursday, host Kerri Miller examined the chances that the inquiry will still happen and what it says about America if it doesn’t.  Guests: Jeffrey Engel is founding director of the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University and co-author of “Impeachment: An American History.” He also co-hosts a podcast called “The Past, The Promise, The Presidency.” Andra Gillespie is an associate professor of political science at Emory University.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s home state of New York legalized cannabis use for adults, after years of failed efforts. More than 40% of Americans now live in states that have embraced full legalization. President Joe Biden has been a conspicuous outlier among Democrats when it comes to supporting marijuana legalization. But Schumer said Biden’s reticence won’t deter the Senate from taking aggressive action to loosen federal restrictions. Schumer pointed to the decade-long experiment with state legalization as evidence that the worst fears of what would happen were overblown. “The legalization of states worked out remarkably well,“ he said. “They were a great success.

Alexander Mercouris, editor-in-chief at TheDuran.com and host of "The Duran" on YouTube, joins us to discuss an ongoing scandal involving a UK government media operation against Russia. Recently leaked documents reveal a secret UK government-funded operation involving the BBC and Reuters aimed at creating instability in Russia. The operation appears to be exactly the targeted propaganda that EU and US media outlets have accused the Russians of operating during the 2016 US election cycle. Chris Garaffa, web developer and technologist, join us to discuss a court ruling in California related to net neutrality. Judge John Mendez of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California denied a telecom industry request for a preliminary injunction against a 2018 California State Legislature statute intended to restore net neutrality in the Golden State. The legislation created an outright ban on zero-rating—the practice of offering free data, potentially to the advantage of some companies over others.Kevin Gosztola, the managing editor of Shadowproof.com, joins us to discuss a letter from two prominent democrats pushing for the censorship of conservative media news-outlets in the United States. Reps. Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerney sent the letters to AT&T, Verizon, Roku, Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Charter, DISH, Cox, Altice, and Hulu as well as Google's parent, Alphabet. This rare move has brought the ire of many free speech advocates due to the serious 1st Amendment questions that it raises. The House Energy and Commerce Committee will be holding a hearing on misinformation and disinformation on cable and broadcast networks on Wednesday, with a focus on the January 6th Capitol protests and the pandemic.Medea Benjamin, the founder of Code Pink, joins us to discuss an article that she co-authored with Nicolas Davies regarding NATO's recent moves to confront Russia and China. The article brings out the failure of the military group in Afghanistan and questions the sanity of creating additional enmity with two of the world's preeminent nuclear powers. Also, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin pushes NATO to join the US in increasing pressure on China.William J Astore, retired lieutenant USAF colonel, who has taught at the Air Force Academy and the Naval Postgraduate School, and now teaches History at the Pennsylvania College of Technology, joins us to discuss Afghanistan. Recent leaks from Capitol Hill say that military and intelligence officers have given President Biden three options for Afghanistan, none of which are particularly appealing. They present that Biden can stay indefinitely, follow the Trump negotiated May 1st withdrawal date, or attempt to negotiate an extension of the exit agreement with the Taliban. Meanwhile, the Taliban is stating that any changes in the current agreement for a May 1st withdrawal will cause problems. George Koo, journalist, social activist, international business consultant and chemical engineer joins us to discuss US policy towards China. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has directed his legislative personnel to craft a bill that will be designed to counter China in the technology sector. The bill will reportedly have a price tag of approximately 100 billion dollars. Also, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin says that recent claims of Chinese human rights violations by the UK regarding the Xinjang region are intentionally disrupting Chinese cooperation with the UN Human Rights Council. Miko Peled, an author and activist, joins us to talk about Israel joins us to discuss Israel's controversial vaccine policies regarding its Palestinian population. The Israeli government is giving away vaccine doses to allied nations who are willing to join the US in moving their diplomatic corps to Jerusalem. The vaccine giveaway is part of a number of moves that have been dubbed by international security analysts as "vaccine diplomacy." Dr. Linwood Tauheed, associate professor of economics at the University of Missouri-Kansas City joins us to discuss the argument over increasing the minimum wage. In his latest article on Common Dreams, noted economics professor Richard Wolff argues that "Paying a decent living wage to workers by raising the minimum wage need not threaten the viability of small businesses." He goes on to argue that the corporate media has been complicit in pushing an extremely flawed argument against creating a living wage for workers and ultimately decreasing income inequality.

While it's unclear what exactly the ordinance will include, it's a step forward in making Boone more accepting of the LGBTQ community. The town council will hear from their attorney either later this month or next month to see what their next steps will be in creating what will become the anti-discrimination ordiance. In state news, Governor Roy Cooper released his new COVID-19 relief budget on February 4th, according to The News & Observer. Cooper's budget mainly focuses on one time teacher bonuses for both K-12 teachers and UNC system professors. The budget also includes increased funding for vaccine distribution, COVID testing, and highway infrastructure maintenance. Cooper also calls for increased funding for small businesses to help keep them afloat. Governor Cooper, however, did not say when this budget will be finalized In national news, The New York Times reports that on February 4th, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer called for President Biden to cancel $50,000 in student debt. Biden supports cancelling student debt, but originally called for $10,000 in relief. If passed, the relief would not go towards students who have already paid off their debt or to those who are about to request loans. Republican senators mostly oppose the proposal, making its future uncertain.

Professor Richard Lachman, Professor at the University at Albany, SUNY and author of "Capitalists in Spite of Themselves," joins us to discuss the change of power at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The political conversation now changes from Donald Trump to policy priorities for the new administration. Will the Biden team be able to focus on internal problems or get hung up with hawkish militarism and external economic confrontation?Jim Kavanaugh, Writer at thepolemicist.net and "CounterPunch" and the author of Over the Rainbow: Paths of Resistance after George Floyd, joins us to discuss President Trump's last-minute flurry of pardons. Trump granted clemency to 143 individuals totaling 73 pardons and 70 commutations. Trump granted clemency to his former policy adviser Steve Bannon and rap star Little Wayne. Bannon was arrested and charged last August with defrauding donors who contributed to a fundraising campaign for a private border wall. In a surprise action, Trump reduced the sentence of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick by 20 years effectively freeing him now. Kevin Gosztola, managing editor of Shadowproof.com, joins us to discuss Julian Assange. President Trump issued a number of pardons but Julian Assange was not one of them. There are reports that Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell threatened to support the impeachment of the President if he pardoned Assange and/or Edward Snowden. Also, there are reports that Rudy Giulliani asked for 2 million dollars for a single pardon.Margaret Flowers, pediatrician, health reform activist and co-director at Popular Resistance joins us to discuss the DC military occupation. We review a Michael Tracey article in which he discusses the positive media coverage towards this event. Tracey asks why media outlets refrain from asking basic questions about the necessity and safety of the occupation. Also, we discuss whether this is a temporary deployment or it could end up being a permanent occupation of a US City. Scott Ritter, former UN weapons inspector in Iraq, returns to discuss the hawkish nature of the Binde foreign policy team. Notorious war hawk Antony Blinken testified that the US would seek to expand the Iran nuclear agreement, a position which is a non-starter according to Iranian Foreign minister Javid Zarif. Blinken indicated that the Biden team plans to continue Trump's China policies and increase tension with Russia. Additionally, Joe Biden selected China hawk Ely Ratner to advise the incoming administration's Pentagon chief on matters related to Beijing.Margaret Kimberley, editor and senior columnist at Black Agenda Report and author of "Prejudential: Black America and the Presidents," to discuss the potential for a crackdown on dissent. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has called for a new version of the no-fly list which includes people classified as domestic terrorists. Also, as Senator Dick Durbin introduces a new domestic terrorism legislative package a recent Glenn Greenwald questions the potential for government overreach. Teri Mattson, Latin America coordinator for Code Pink, joins us to discuss the Biden policy towards Venezuela. Secretary of State and notorious hawk Antony Blinken stated that the Biden administration will continue to recognize Juan Guaido as the interim president of Venezuela. Also, Blinken said that they will continue with targeted sanctions in an effort to overthrow the Government of Nicholas Maduro. Blinken's testimony implies that the Maduro government's desire to engage with the Biden team may fall on deaf ears.KJ Noh, peace activist, writer and teacher, joins us to discuss the Biden administration's recent statements about China. Biden's selection of noted China Hawk Ely Ratner to advise the Secretary of Defense coupled with recent statements about the US taking back world leadership are ominous signs for those who seek a resolution through multipolar negotiations. Biden's selection of another China hawk, Kurt Campbell, as his “Indo-Pacific czar” further cements the notion that a significant economic and possibly military confrontation may be at hand.
