    I have little doubt NY AG James will move with alacrity.

    Also, everyone should push for a House Rules change …

      That’s great – but it totally destroys the line-up for Saturday/Sunday mornings at my house – Ha! All kidding aside, glad she made it into prime-time scheduling, a very BFD. I don’t agree with her 100 percent, but close enough.

        I’m with you. I hope they make a bold choice and put another excellent woman of color in her Saturday/Sunday time slots.

        I’d be hard-pressed to find ANYONE I agree with 100% of the time, be they family, friend, colleague, or public figure.

    “Former SDNY Prosecutor Geoffrey Berman Just Dropped The Hammer On Barr”
    From Berman’s opening statement to the House Judiciary Committee:
    “I told the Attorney General that there were important investigations in the Office that I wanted to see through to completion. I also said that I wanted to help lead the Office through the COVID crisis and get the Office back to normal functioning. The Attorney General repeatedly urged me to take the Civil Division position.
    At one point, I compared his request for my resignation to what happened with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the District of Columbia, where the U.S. Attorney resigned and was replaced with someone from outside that office instead of the First Assistant. By referring to that resignation, I intended to signal the Attorney General that I was not going to resign so that he could disregard normal procedure and appoint someone from outside the Southern District as acting head instead of our Deputy U.S. Attorney.
    The Attorney General said that if I did not resign from my position, I would be fired. He added that getting fired from my job would not be good for my resume or future job prospects. I told him that while I did not want to get fired, I would not resign.”

    U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler objected to the WNBA’s plans to honor the Black Lives Matter movement, warning Tuesday that subscribing to a “particular political agenda undermines the potential of the sport and sends a message of exclusion.”

    Loeffler, a Republican who co-owns Atlanta’s WNBA franchise, urged Commissioner Cathy Engelbert in a letter to scrap plans for players to wear warmup jerseys reading “Black Lives Matter” and “Say Her Name” and instead put an American flag on all uniforms and apparel.

    The letter faced swift and sharp criticism from players and fans. Dream guard Renee Montgomery, who is sitting out the 2020 WNBA season to focus on social justice initiatives, tagged Loeffler in a message Twitter.

      Roberts will on occasion slow dance with the GOP, and he’ll even let them whisper in his ear. But he will never go home with them.

    Local governments in Georgia are stepping up and issuing mandates that the Governor is too spineless to issue.

    Several other governments in Georgia, including Savannah, East Point and Athens-Clarke County, have passed similar ordinances requiring masks.

    Athens (location of University of Georgia campus) mandate in effect thru August 4, but could be extended. Penalties are $25 for a first offense, $25 for a second and $100 for a third.

    East Point effective 12 a.m. on July 9, 2020. Violators are subject to a fine of up to $75. Fines can be imposed starting Monday, July 13, 2020.

    Savannah mayor issued emergency order making wearing masks in public mandatory. Those who refuse to comply could face $500 fines.

    DeKalb County and at least two of its cities are considering ordinances that would require residents to wear masks in public.

    The mandates, however, conflict with a statewide order from Gov. Brian Kemp that “strongly encourages” — but does not mandate — the use of masks, and bans local governments from enacting stricter measures to fight COVID-19. [But some local leaders are prioritizing the health and life of its citizens, making bold moves in spite of potential challenges.]

    Kemp has not threatened legal action against the local governments bucking his statewide order.
