    Before Mr. Navalny dies via Putin cunning (and this time I think he will die without intervention):
    Is it too far fetched for President Biden to offer to help him? Or Germany once again?
    At least get the ball rolling….while he is alive.

    President Biden:
    A Proclamation on Earth Day, 2021
    (excerpt)

    “In recent years, climate change has upended the lives of millions of Americans. Record cold weather knocked out the electric grid in Texas this winter, killing at least 111 people and disrupting the lives and livelihoods of millions more. Wildfires tore through more than 5 million acres across the American West — an area roughly the size of the entire State of New Jersey burned to the ground. Last year, back-to-back hurricanes and powerful tropical storms battered the Gulf and East Coasts in the worst Atlantic hurricane season in recorded history. Record floods, hurricane-speed windstorms, and severe droughts devastated families and communities across the Midwest. People have lost homes and irreplaceable memories of their loved ones, small businesses built from years of tireless labor and sacrifice, farmland meant to be passed on to the next generation, and so much more.

    At the same time, Black, Latino, Indigenous, and other communities of color continue to be hit hardest by the impacts of climate change. They bear the highest burden of pollution, face higher rates of heart and lung disease, are least likely to have safe drinking water in their homes, and suffer increased risk of death from COVID-19. These communities have also frequently been shut out of government decisions that directly bear on their interests. We have an obligation to correct these historic wrongs and to build a future where all people have clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, healthy communities in which they can live, work, and learn, and a meaningful voice in their future.

    That is why my Administration is advancing the most ambitious climate agenda in our Nation’s history.
    Our clean energy plan will create millions of good-paying union jobs, ensure our economic competitiveness, and improve the health and security of communities across America. By making those investments and putting millions of Americans to work, the United States will be able to cut our greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030.”

    “As the nation reacts to the guilty verdict a jury handed to Derek Chauvin in the killing of George Floyd, Republican-led states are introducing punitive new measures governing protests.”
    (https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/21/us/politics/republican-anti-protest-laws.html)

    “G.O.P. lawmakers in 34 states have introduced 81 anti-protest bills during the 2021 legislative session”

    Greetings.

    Q: ARE WE IN RUSSIA?

    Putin has arrested at least 1700 protesters. (NPR)

    Here, GOP in 34 states have introduced 81 anti-protest bills this year. (NYT)

    De Santis signed an anti-riot bill into law on Monday.
    Senator Shevrin Jones, D-West Park said the new law: “undermines every Floridian’s constitutional rights,
    and it is disgusting that the GOP would rather empower vigilantes and silence voices than listen to the majority of Floridians who oppose this dangerous bill. The governor’s spectacle is a distraction that will only further disenfranchise Black and brown communities.”

    imo, we are looking a lot more like Russia…
    what happened to the right to assemble in America?
    (They sure act fast when they want to.). How far will GOP go to get their authoritarian papa elected?

    Imagine if trump had been re-elected. What was their plan?
    Putin is revisiting 2014 and amassing troops on the border of Ukraine, threatening his ‘enemies’ in a speech,
    arresting protestors, and poisoning his opponent Navalny to death.
    —While his GOP admirers and colluders openly lift up his vision in the U.S.
