      “Not Just Coronavirus:
      Asians Have Worn Face Masks for Decades”

      “Japanese wear masks when feeling sick as a courtesy to stop any sneezes from landing on other people. Japanese women mask their faces on days when they don’t have time to put on makeup.
      Philippine motorcycle riders wear masks to deflect vehicular exhausts in heavy traffic.
      In Taiwan, citizens say masks keep their faces warm in the winter and offer a sense of protection from air pollution, including any airborne germs.
      Masks have become so popular that some manufacturers make them purely for fashionable use, with no protective function.”

    “On GOP efforts to ban the teaching of critical race theory, Joy says “None of this should shock you.
    Why would the Republican Party want to have a factual conversation about race, gender, and equity when their most pressing issue today is pushing ‘the big lie?’'”

    “Remember, this is the hardest state in which to cast a ballot,” said O’Rourke.
    “That is not an opinion of mine. You can read journals and scientific studies that look at all the 50 states, and they find it because we don’t have online voter registration places, hundreds of polling place closures, racial gerrymandering of our jurisdictions and harshest voter ID laws, among many other problems.
    It’s harder to cast a ballot here than anywhere else, and Republicans here are about to make it even harder.”

    Opinion:
    Federal Judges and DOJ Prosecutors Warn That Trump Is Still Inciting Violence

    “According to two separate Supreme Court rulings,
    there is a limit on free speech that poses an inherent danger to public safety.
    Still, right-wing media outlets and Republican fascists continue parroting Trump’s Big Lie that the election was fraudulent and stolen from him. Now, federal officials assert that Trump poses a clear and present danger of more violence against the United States government.”

    “On Thursday, Department of Justice prosecutors argued in filings that Trump’s fascist rebels must be kept incarcerated due to the “persistent danger inspired by Trump.”

    Nearly one million people signed up for Obamacare coverage this spring.

    “Nearly one million Americans have signed up for Affordable Care Act coverage during the first 10 weeks of a special open enrollment period the Biden administration began in February.

    A total of 940,000 people enrolled in Obamacare coverage between Feb. 15 and April 30, new data released Thursday by Health and Human Services shows. Of those new enrollees, nearly half bought coverage last month, after Congress added billions in subsidies included in the most recent stimulus package.

    With that additional funding, the average monthly premium that Healthcare.gov consumers paid fell to $86 for those signing up in April, down from $117 in February and March (before the new subsidies).

    The surge in sign-ups reflects a growing demand for health insurance.
    Many Americans have lost job-based coverage during the pandemic, and others who were uninsured before found themselves newly interested in coverage. The numbers undercount the overall new insurance sign-ups; they reflect enrollment only in the 36 states with marketplaces that the federal government manages.”

    Speaker Pelosi:
    Statement on Biden Administration Banning Discrimination Against LGBTQ Americans in Health
    (excerpts)

    “Today, the Biden Administration has taken essential and potentially life-saving action
    to affirm that all people in America have the right to quality, affordable health care – no matter who they are or whom they love. During this time of pandemic and always, it is vital that the most vulnerable have access to care, including LGBTQ Americans, who have long suffered injustice and discrimination that has left them dangerously exposed to health risks.”

    “The Trump Administration’s decision to greenlight anti-LGBTQ discrimination in health care
    in the middle of a pandemic was an act of senseless and staggering cruelty,
    made in blatant defiance of our values and a Supreme Court ruling made just a month prior.”

    “The Secret Papers of Lee Atwater,
    Who Invented the Scurrilous Tactics That Trump Normalized”

    “An infamous Republican political operative’s unpublished memoir shows how the Party came to embrace lies, racial fearmongering, and winning at any cost.”
    by Jane Mayer

    “Atwater died before he could finish his memoir.
    What remains of it are hunks of yellowing typewritten pages, held together by rusting staples and paper clips.
    But the seven surviving chapters suggest that, far from dying along with him, the nihilism, cynicism, and scurrilous tactics that Atwater brought into national politics live on. In many ways, his memoir suggests that Atwater’s tactics were a bridge between the old Republican Party of the Nixon era, when dirty tricks were considered a scandal, and the new Republican Party of Donald Trump,
    in which lies, racial fearmongering, and winning at any cost have become normalized.
    Chapter 5 of Atwater’s memoir in particular serves as a Trumpian precursor.”

    Remarks by President Biden on the Economy
    (excerpts)

    “In the first quarter, our economy grew at 6.4 percent rate, outpacing the growth we’re seeing from other — our friends in the Eurozone.

    Because of the American Rescue Plan, forecrast- — forecasters are projecting we’ll see the fastest economic growth in nearly 40 years in the months to come. We’re moving in the right direction.

    So let’s be clear: Our economic plan is working.
    I never said — and no serious analyst ever suggested — that climbing out of the deep, deep hole our economy was in would be simple, easy, immediate, or perfectly steady. Remember, 22 million Americans lost their jobs in this pandemic…”

    “First, today we’re opening a portal for state and local governments to apply for their — the first funds from the American Rescue Plan. Because states and local governments have to balance their budgets, a lot of them had to lay off employees when the economy — state and federal — state employees and local employees when the economy slowed and tax revenues fell. We’re talking about 1.3 million state and local employees out of work.

    Now — but now the money we’re distributing — going to be distributing now is going to make it possible for an awful lot of educators, first responders, sanitation workers to go back to work.

    Second — this is a yearlong program. Second, we’re delivering assistance to tens of thousands of restaurants and bars across the country. Today, we’re sending out the first relief checks to 16,000 hard-hit restaurants with help for many more to follow. A lot more people are going to be employed.

    Third, the employers bring back laid-off workers. To help them do that, we’re going to remind them that there is some progress they can take advantage — some programs they can take advantage of….”

    “Fourth, we’re going to provide real help for people struggling with the challenge of childcare, which is making it hard for many parents who need to work — especially women — to get back to work. ..”

      With GOP cheating is not cheating, and the only crime is getting caught. If they can pre-rig the system they will not pay if caught = a trump specialty. The world of Mafia Don and the GOP party of course messes with the the courts and police…Trump has been in that world all his life. Now the infection has spread and his party was primed for it, the only ethic is to cheat and lie.

      imo per the GOP plan pretty soon there’ll be no such thing as an election, only those who stay in control.

      H.R.1 – FOR THE PEOPLE ACT
      Senator Jeff Merkley, lead sponsor of the For The People Act, talks to Rachel Maddow.
      Senator Merkley:
      “And by the way what you’re describing in Arizona, that madness. There is method to that madness.
      It is designed to keep the voter fraud argument going, both to change the laws in the states, and to stop this bill in the Senate.”

    • May 11, 2021 at 1:44 pm

      Sen. Merkely:
      “And so we’re working with those Republicans across the country who say
      ‘This makes sense, we want to stop gerrymandering, which corrupts the vision of equal representation. We want to stop billionaires from buying elections, and we want to defend the freedom and right of every citizen to be able to vote.’
      And so this strategy is based on let’s defend these core principles of our Constitution that resonate deeply with Democrats and with Republicans across this country.”

    • May 11, 2021 at 1:46 pm

      Sen. Merkley:
      “the reason the Republican establishment in the Senate is opposing this is because their power stems from a corrupted voting process, from the gerrymandering, from the dark money, from the voter suppression. And they want to maintain it, even though their citizens out there across America say they want us to restore and protect the right to vote.

      And so if we don’t talk about it, we fail to convey what a tremendously perilous moment this is.
      Because if we fail to protect the election process, then we have failed to defend the core foundation for the vision of Government of, by, and for the People. And it means that the Republican goals, whether it’s packing the courts with federalist corporate members, or it’s tax cuts for the richest Americans. Those things get done by simple majority because the Republicans change the rules. While the things that we’re fighting for, for ordinary families on health care, housing, education, good paying jobs and the Equality Act, and environmental protection – those things we fail on. Because they (GOP) will keep the people from being able to vote (and from) fighting for those fundamental goals.

      So are we going to veer out completely away from this vision that our nation was founded on,
      or as Lincoln summarized, of, by and for the people? And just be a corrupted republic that works for the powerful? Whether or not we pass this bill is a huge pivot point for the direction of America.”

      Michael Scherer, WAPO, to Rachel Maddow last night:
      “You know, Donald Trump wanted to make an example of Liz Cheney when she voted for impeachment. He sent out aides right away to Wyoming to denounce her. He celebrated the Republican Party in that state when it censured her. He commissioned a poll to show how unpopular she was.
      But Liz Cheney is making clear tonight, and I think you’ll see it tomorrow and I think you’ll see it for days to come, that instead of an example he’s getting a rival here. And she’s going to take this case the distance.
      And I think her event horizon here is longer than he thought it would be.
      She’s not just looking to the next midterms….”

  81. May 12, 2021 at 10:23 am

    imo…thinking…maybe this is how GOP figures it can play both angles.
    Like when trump crashes and burns with indictments, Cheney the hard right conservative who voted 93% of the time with Trump, will be there. She even voted against gay marriage when her sister is gay! Even as we don’t want Trump, Cheney is no friend to Democrats. She’s like that ‘smart trump’ we predicted would come along. As always the architects are playing the long game.

    Statement by President Joseph R. Biden, Jr.
    in Support of Washington State’s Overtime Bill for Farm Workers

    “I congratulate the Washington State legislature and Governor Jay Inslee for signing into law SB 5172, Washington’s Overtime Bill for Agricultural Workers, which will help more than 100,000 farmworkers secure the overtime pay they deserve. Agricultural workers in Washington and across the country have helped carry our nation through this pandemic — working long hours, often at great personal risk, to meet the needs of their communities and keep America healthy and well-nourished. These overtime protections will ensure that agricultural workers in Washington are paid for all of the vital work they do.

    For too long — and owing in large part to unconscionable race-based exclusions put in place generations ago — farmworkers have been denied some of the most fundamental rights that workers in almost every other sector have long enjoyed, including the right to a forty-hour work week and overtime pay.”
