      Hello. Kudos and congrats for opening the door, jackie O’boomer. Thanks, NW, for the new thread. Love this man.

      FYI: I will continue to wear my mask, especially inside stores and other locations. TN is fourth from the bottom in vaccinations. Less than 29% of the state is vaccinated. Knox County comes in at 43% vaccinated so for this red area, that’s not too bad and especially in relation to the rest of the state. #leadershipmatters

    How much of this ‘ransomware’ was oil insider trading? Who made a killing on oil features?

      If verified as true, how many families suffered injury due to monster greed?

      Instead of supposedly paying the ransom couldn’t they just reload the backup files right before the attack? So instead of doing that, it would have been cost effective to pay ransom instead of an IT team to figure out the billing?

      I had my suspensions from the very beginning due to the fact that it happened in GOP territory.

    The don’t-believe-your-own-eyes gop strategy:

    Republican Rep. Clyde actually said the following;
    knowing how many people died and how many police officers were injured defending himself and the Capitol.
    The reality is if not stopped, domestic terrorists might have assassinated members of Congress and held others hostage. Put it this way imo if Clyde doesn’t know by now, he and Greene should be mentally evaluated.
    Clyde: ”There was no insurrection…the TV footage of those who entered the Capitol and walked through Statuary Hall showed people in an orderly fashion staying between the stanchions and ropes, taking videos and pictures…you would actually think it was a normal tourist visit.”

    Ari Melber to Jemele Hill (Atlantic): “What we should think through about that as a society?”
    (unable to finalize transcript)
    Jemele Hill:
    “Yes unfortunately for our country, it’s sadly on brand. Because we have seen through a number of historical events how in the moment, they try to get sanitized. How they get changed, misinterpreted, just to continue to keep the hypocrisy going. I mean the truth of the matter is we have a national problem in facing up to our own stuff. And I really didn’t want to say ‘stuff’. I mean this goes back throughout the history of slavery, even when you look at the history of civil rights. And even now, with people trying to rewrite what slavery actually was.
    So, I’m not surprised that this has bled over into the insurrection.

    I don’t know too many tours where you see people climbing the outside of the building, or threatening to kill lawmakers. Or too many tours where an officer loses his life and many officers get injured, and they’re left with the psychological damage of what was done to them that day. And it’s beyond just intellectually dishonest. It’s actually hurtful. It’s hurtful for not just the people who were there that day and tried to defend the Capitol, and the authorities, and police officers that were put in harm’s way.

    It’s offensive and hurtful as a citizen in this country. Because this is something that is clearly fundamentally wrong. We have to be able to call a thing the thing.
    We have to be able to say what is actually true.
    There is no healing that can come if you’re constantly lying to yourself.
    And so looking at how a lot of Republicans, a lot of conservatives are trying to rewrite what happened on January 6th, it’s just, frankly, insulting. It’s beneath them, it’s undignified and it’s just reckless…knowing that they’re continually perpetuating lies and untruths to people on a daily basis – all in a desperate grab for power.”

    How US police training compares with the rest of the world


    US police academies spend far more time on firearms training than on de-escalating a situation – 71 hours against 21, on average, according to a 2013 US Bureau of Justice Statistics report.

    And in the US, the escalation of force is at the discretion of the officer, whereas in countries such as Norway and Finland officers must get permission from a more senior officer before firing a gun.

    Prof Haberfeld says: “Most of the training in the US is focused on various types of use of force, primarily the various types of physical force. The communication skills are largely ignored by most police academies.

    “This is why you see officers very rapidly escalating from initial communication to the actual physical use of force, because this is how they train.”

      on Covid cases declining in the U.S. and deaths down by 81%.
      Dr. Fauci to Chris Hayes:

      “I have heard of situations where I think are quite reasonable,
      that a person who owns an establishment says OK…
      I am an establishment in which there may be people who are unvaccinated and infected,
      and other people who are unvaccinated and not infected, and there`s risk of transmitting in my establishment….

      Therefore, that person has every right to say, when you come into my establishment, you better put a mask on otherwise don`t come in…

      But the bottom line of why this recommendation was made
      was to assure people
      that WHEN they get vaccinated,
      they can feel safe,
      whatever circumstance they`re on,
      outdoors or indoors.”

    Statement from President Joseph R. Biden, Jr.
    on the Child Tax Credit

    “The American Rescue Plan is delivering critical tax relief to middle class and hard-pressed working families with children. With today’s announcement, about 90% of families with children will get this new tax relief automatically, starting in July. While the American Rescue Plan provides for this vital tax relief to hard working families for this year, Congress must pass the American Families Plan to ensure that working families will be able to count on this relief for years to come. For working families with children, this tax cut sends a clear message: help is here.”

    LIVE NOW — President Biden delivers remarks at Ford electric vehicle facility in Dearborn, Michigan

  39. May 18, 2021 at 2:00 pm

    Gene Sperling, White House American Rescue Plan Coordinator,
    to Lawrence O’Donnell on the Child Tax Credit:

    “This is an historic tax cut.
    It is one of the hallmarks of the American Rescue Plan in providing security, dignity, opportunity to virtually every middle class family. And as you said, being a policy that can have a major impact in reducing child poverty….we’re giving that tax cut NOW starting in July when people need it, when they’re still coming back from Covid pandemic…it’s going to come every month. And one of the things I’m most proud of in our work with Treasury and the IRS is that for the people who get direct deposit, which is 80% of American taxpayers right now, it’s going to come on the 15th of every month…

    And I do think this reflects a lot of the policy heart of Joe Biden,
    not just that it’s going to help the dignity and security of families that it’s going to reduce poverty. But when you talk about him wanting to know the details, one of the things he presses – and this was true in the campaign, it’s true as long as I’ve worked with him – is how is it going to affect people? How are they going to know what they’re getting….so here they’re going to know: July 15th, August 15th, September 15th, they’re going to know there’s that extra support they can depend on and rely on and this has really never been done before…

    He (Joe) sees that real person,
    and he knows getting that right might be a detail in a policy world,
    but it’s life and death to a working family,
    to their hopes, their aspirations,
    the desire that everyone has to care for their children.”

    Congressman Ted Lieu, thank you.

    “The Republicans right now still can’t even identify who stole the election.
    I mean was it Hugo Chavez, was it the Dominion voting machines CEO, was it the panda bears, was a voter standing in line waiting to get water? They can’t even identify a culprit.

    So in addition to that, these very same Republican members were on the same ballot as the former president.
    So if the ballot was somehow faulty, then they shouldn’t even be in Congress.”

    “They have been setting this up with dark money to get Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett on the Supreme Court
    to the tune of millions.”

    Remarks by President Biden on a Future Made in America

    “We’re at a great inflection point in American history. How we handle the next 4 to 10 years is going to determine where we’re going to be 30, 40, 50 years from now. It’s one of those moments in American history….

    Look, the future of the auto industry is electric. There’s no turning back.
    And as Rory says, “The American auto industry is at a crossroads.”
    And the real question is whether we’ll lead or we’ll fall behind in the race to the future;
    or whether we’ll build these vehicles and the batteries that go in them here in the United States or rely on other countries; or whether the jobs to build these vehicles and batteries, that are good-paying union jobs with benefits — jobs that will sustain and grow the middle class.”

    “It means passing the American Jobs Plan to do three things.
    One, transform our infrastructure. Our infrastructure is ranked like 38th in the world. This is the United States of America, for God’s sake.

    We’re going to put Americans to work modernizing our roads, our highways, our ports, our airports, rails, and transit systems. That includes putting IBEW members and the union workers to work installing 500,000 charging stations along our roads and highways, our homes and our apartments.
    The IBEW is ready to do it, and they can.

    Two, we’re going to boost our manufacturing capacity. That’s why the American Jobs Plan invests in new and retooled union facilities: grants to kickstart new battery and parts production, loans and tax credits to boost manufacturing of these clean vehicles.

    It also makes the largest investment in research and development in generations. That’s going to help innovate, manufacture, and build the supply chains for batteries and semi-conductors and the small computer chips that make electric trucks and cars go — to be even more reliant than they are now.”

    Gina McCarthy, White House National Climate Advisor,
    to Chris Hayes:

    “I mean everybody is going electric. And the question is who’s going to win in that race, and who’s going to capture these markets.

    So but it’s also important to recognize that in the American Jobs Plan,
    there are incentives that will help consumers be able to afford these vehicles. We know that soon they’re going to have parity with the cost of combustion engines, but we want them to have parity now.
    We want consumers to have opportunities for rebates. We want to actually provide benefits to companies that have union workers, and that actually manufacture these batteries. We want to have opportunities for a manufacturing upstream and the entire supply chain. So we’re talking about grants and loans and other opportunities that we can bring to the table.

    In the American Jobs Plan,
    we’ll accelerate everything we’re doing. Everything from electric vehicles,
    to transit, to buses. I mean we are talking about transforming our transportation sector so that we’re ready to build the future. Not just rely on what we had in the past. That’s what President Biden means about Build Back Better. And it’s just the start. Because we’re looking at investments and broadband. We’re looking at investments in the future that’s really going to point us to win in this economic challenge that we face right now.

    And Lord knows, the pandemic is getting close to being behind us. And we want it to be there. Now is the time to look at hope and opportunity. New jobs, good-paying jobs. Really building the future in a way that we’re going to be proud to hand to our kids. Because there’s going to be low carbon. It’s going to address the issue of climate change. And provide us an opportunity to live healthier and safer lives.
    That’s what it’s all about.”

    and they’re also using this particular audit to push legislation. Voter suppression legislation, that’s what they’re doing. This is what it’s all about. It’s about continuing the Big Lie. It’s about raising money. And it’s about using this to push legislation that will hurt the ability for minorities and elderly and poor people from voting.
    That’s what this is all about.”

    “Enough is enough!
    The fact is that we received a letter from the Arizona State Senate accusing us of ‘committing crimes’ here in the state of Arizona and in Maricopa County. They have called for us to be arrested.
    Enough is enough. I believe that many of the Republicans there in Maricopa County have said this is enough. We’re not going to continue to stand on the sidelines and be quiet. We’re going to speak out.
    And that’s what you’re seeing.
    You’re seeing members not only on my Board but countywide elected Republican officials….
    The fact is that they have done more damage to our democracy, the credibility of our election system over the last 6 months than ever before. And it’s time for elected officials to stand up and say Enough Is Enough, knock it off, stop this ridiculous sham audit. And for those that want to sit on our sidelines, our governor, Governor Ducey wants to sit on the sidelines, doesn’t want to upset Trump and the Trump loyalists – enough is enough!
    He needs to step up.”

    Congresswoman Grace Meng:
    On the passage of the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act.

    “The House today passed a Senate bill to address the rise in Anti-Asian hate crimes during the pandemic.
    New York Congresswoman Grace Meng, who introduced the legislation in the House, tells Joy, “most hate crimes and hate incidents are not being reported to the federal government at all and so we want to make sure, as with any health crisis… that we are having a more accurate and complete set of data to figure out how we can better target and address this problem.”
