    White House Briefing Live

  6. March 5, 2021 at 1:25 pm

    President Obama is recommending two articles and one book for us to read:

    “David Shor on Why Trump Was Good for the GOP and How Dems Can Win in 2022”
    (https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2021/03/david-shor-2020-democrats-autopsy-hispanic-vote-midterms-trump-gop.html)

    “The ‘free world’ keeps shrinking”
    (https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2021/03/03/democracy-declining-freedom-house-report/)

    “How To Avoid A Climate Disaster”
    “The Solutions We Have And The Breakthroughs We Need”
    (Bill Gates)

    NATIVE AMERICAN-
    “Republican senators cited a study commissioned by the biggest oil and gas trade association in the US
    in their criticisms of Deb Haaland, Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Department of the Interior,
    during a confirmation hearing last week.”
    (https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/mar/04/republicans-used-oil-industry-backed-study-to-criticize-deb-haaland)
    —of course they did.

    “A U.S. Supreme Court decision from March 1978
    continues to hinder tribal sovereignty on a daily basis.
    The ruling in Oliphant v. Suquamish Indian Tribe
    stripped tribes of most criminal prosecutions against non-Indians.
    Those cases became the responsibility of the federal government. In his dissent, Justice Thurgood Marshall wrote “I am of the view that Indian tribes enjoy, as a necessary aspect of their retained sovereignty, the right to try and punish all persons who commit offenses against tribal law within the reservation.”
    The Violence Against Women Act was an attempt to remedy the persistent trend of non-Native abusers of Native women slipping through the cracks of the federal justice system.
    Native America Calling will look at the distressing consequences of Oliphant
    and efforts through the years to fix it.”

    People read more interesting things when Barack and Michelle Obama recommend them. Shoutout to Portland scientist Arlyne Simon who has published two books encouraging curiosity and inventiveness in young Black girls.

        I loathe everything about this man, he is an impediment full of dampness and drab. This fucker is a common cold, not sick enough to go to the doctor but sick enough to fuck up your entire weekend.

    want to say…
    Thinking of every Senator working in the early hours on behalf of the People tonight. Thank you for staying at the Capitol after all that has happened there – and we are still in a pandemic. Thank you for working up until the Covid Relief Bill vote. We need you soo much. Thank you, thank you.

    See now that’s what I’m talking about…..
    (That Johnson 20 hours didn’t happen.)
    “You see, at 2:05 AM Chris Van Hollen (D-Maryland) was in the chamber, with other Democrats,
    for the conclusion of the reading. At the conclusion, he rose to change the debate from 20 hours to just 3.
    Not one Republican, including Johnson, was around to contest.” (Daily Kos)

    President Biden:
    “Tells America That Competent Leadership Is Back After Senate Passes COVID Relief Bill”
    “When I was elected, I said we were going to get the government out of the business of battling on Twitter and back in the business of delivering for the American people,” the president said.
    “Passing the American Rescue Plan will do that.”
