    “Anti-Asian racism and violence spiking during pandemic”
    “Michellle Kim says on The ReidOut that,
    “We’re seeing increased violence because, in part, the normalization of the rhetoric by the previous govt.
    But also because of the lack of safety net that’s creating so much scarcity in all communities right now.”

      I’m glad that Joy addressed this issue. It’s horrific to see older Asian people being physically assaulted just because of their race.

    Noticing…where are all the lovely Asian woman and men in those glamor ads, and family ads, etc, which seem more diverse finally.

    “Voting is the Right on Which Everything Else Hinges”
    Congressman Schiff, Chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and Hayes discuss HR1, the sweeping democracy reform package that would safeguard the right to vote, root out corruption and increase transparency, and protect and strengthen our democracy. Schiff also discussed Republican efforts to disenfranchise voters of color and gerrymander districts, thereby sealing in a decade of Republican rule, despite their increasing unpopularity.”

    Senator Warren:
    “Understand this. The filibuster gives veto power to Mitch McConnell. And to the gun industry. And to the oil industry. For generations, racist senators used the filibuster to block anti-lynching laws and civil rights bills. It’s still blocking progress today. It’s got to go.”

      We all know this. Unless the filibuster goes, all these bills that are desperately needed to preserve our democracy, build back better (infrastructure), immigration……. will all die in the Senate. We love Joe, but he keeps saying he’s not in favor of getting rid of the filibuster. I do.not.understand. Can anyone explain?!?!

    “What Supporters Of The Filibuster Get Wrong About How It Works | Rachel Maddow”
    “Senator Chris Murphy explains why the ideal of the filibuster forcing the parties to work together to pass legislation in the Senate doesn’t actually work that way, and is instead a vehicle for the minority to exercise a veto over any legislation they don’t like or don’t want to see the opposing party get credit for passing”

    “The economy beat job growth estimates
    by adding 379,000 new jobs in February, as signs are that the economy is moving in the right direction”
    NBC: “The U.S. economy added 379,000 jobs in February, roundly beating economists’ estimates of 210,000,
    and indicating that one year into the pandemic, the labor market is finally showing signs of recovery. In the first full monthly employment report under President Joe Biden, the unemployment rate fell to 6.2 percent,from 6.3 percent in January, according to data released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.”

    Speaker Pelosi
    Statement on February Jobs Report:
    “The February jobs report shows some progress, but much more is needed to address the daily reality of joblessness and financial insecurity facing millions of Americans. State and local governments continue to be forced to slash our heroes’ jobs, particularly in education, millions of parents are unable to look for work and pushed out of the labor force because they are staying home with their children and nearly ten million jobs have still not come back.

    The need for decisive action to save lives and livelihoods could not be more urgent – which is why, last week, House Democrats passed the Biden American Rescue Plan. This vital legislation will put vaccines in people’s arms, money in workers’ pockets, children safely back in school and people back in work – all while stimulating the economy, cutting child poverty in half and lifting nearly 12 million people out of poverty.

    Senate Republicans must end their obstruction and delay tactics, which demonstrate a great disdain for the suffering of the American people, and work with the Senate Democratic Majority to pass and send this bill to the President’s desk. Democrats stand with the overwhelming majority of the American people demanding this legislation, as we work expeditiously to ensure the American Rescue Plan is the law of the land and that
    Help Is On the Way.”

    JUSTICE for Mr. Jamal Khashoggi, his family, his colleagues…update…

    “The good news is that the US judiciary remains independent of both political branches and is not subject to a p
    presidential veto; it might well provide the means to achieve justice for MBS’s crimes.

    Three cases have been brought against the crown prince in US federal courts,
    one for the murder of Khashoggi;
    the second for the attempted murder of the exiled former senior intelligence official Saad Aljabri;
    the third for the hacking, harassment and defamation of Al Jazeera anchor Ghada Oueiss.
    Recent developments bode well for the plaintiffs in all three cases.

    The Biden administration has indicated that it considers MBS as Saudi defence minister to be on the same level as the US secretary of defence, a designation that will almost certainly deny him head of state immunity from these lawsuits.”
