    ‘The director of the Office of Management and Budget, Russ Vought, has argued internally that the agency needs to focus on finishing new regulations the Trump administration plans to publish before the president leaves office, according to people familiar with the matter,” reported Nancy Cook.

    “But experts on the federal budget say Vought’s refusal to give Biden’s team access to career OMB officials is unprecedented and could hurt Biden’s efforts to roll out big-picture, forward-looking ideas on everything from health care to climate change to taxes at the start of his four-year term.”

    Australians will sing a different version of their national anthem from 1 January after Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced a change to the words on Thursday.

    The anthem will no longer refer to Australia as “young and free” in an attempt to reflect the country’s long indigenous history.

    The announcement was a surprise but welcomed across the government.

    Mr Morrison said he hopes the change will create a “spirit of unity”.

    People inhabited Australia for tens of thousands of years before it was colonised by mostly white English settlers in the 18th Century.

    The line to be removed in the anthem, which is called Advance Australia Fair, is “For we are young and free”. Instead people will sing “For we are one and free.”

    Earlier this year, the leader of New South Wales state, Premier Gladys Berejiklian, suggested the change, saying the current wording ignored Australia’s “proud First Nations culture”.

    So many things made political by the traitorous thug and his henchmen. If the dems don’t care to fix them (yes, it’s a hard ask), the rethugs’ destruction of governance will never stop.

      Yup, it’s a starting point for dems. The rethug pigs and their media minions will pull plenty of poutrage squeals but I am sure most americans want the dems to do it.

    Yes! Saw it before, but still crying this time as well as the first time. I have Souza’s book Intimate Portrait about Obama. I received Shade for Xmas and a book about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I also got Promised Land and Obama’s Speeches. Pretty set with reading material for the next year since I only read when I go to bed.
    Happy New Year everyone!

    Say his name.

    Write his name to Speaker Pelosi demanding his Impeachment by he 117th Congress.

    As soon as we have an Acting Biden-appointed AG, write to the DOJ demanding he be indicted.

      As a bit of context, my little white body was baptized in a Catholic church a few days after birth and I played the role of Jesus in the Christmas nativity play at age 7.

      It has annoyed me to no end that — among its too numerous to count travesties the Catholic institutional system has perpetrated over the past two millennia — it peddles the propaganda that Mary & Jesus were white folk.

      Good cash flow scam, but intellectually insulting.

    “Opinion: Trump Reveals Strong Connection Between Authoritarianism and Anti-Abortion Politics”

    “And we need to stress that the autocratic urge in U.S. society is not a solo endeavor on Trump’s part.
    The assault on democracy has been overt and brazen, carried out in plain and public sight, ardently and proudly, by significant sectors of the Republican Party, right-wing coalitions, and far too many Americans who have promoted voter suppression and still support Trump’s rallying cry that the election was stolen.

    But these autocratic tendencies have deeper historical roots in right-wing politics, roots that were exposed last October when the Trump administration signed a global anti-abortion declaration with 32 member states of the United Nations, many of which are authoritarian regimes or seen as severely flawed democracies. The declaration was co-sponsored by the U.S., Egypt, Hungary, Indonesia, Brazil and Uganda; other nations signing on included Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and the Democratic Republic of Congo, all of which are classified as authoritarian regimes in The Economist’s 2019 Democracy Index. And apart from the U.S., none of signatories rated higher than 95th on Georgetown University’s Women, Peace, and Security Index….

    Indeed, anti-abortion politics largely enable and normalize autocratic behavior by denying women
    the very status of personhood and thus equal rights.”

    —Argentina just passed a strong bill for women. Trump signed an anti-abortion declaration with 32 countries.
