    Congrats, Dudette! Hope everyone can enjoy a great weekend now that so many of us have been vaccinated. It’s my 50th reunion (virtual) from Oberlin College in Ohio. I signed up for a discussion of Healing Democracy tomorrow morning (6:30 AM Pacific time – bummer) among other activities. That place shaped my sense of social justice.

      President Biden is sure “getting it done.” I’m so glad. His empathy genes are enhancing his overall presidential performance, not detracting from any of it.

      But, “between us girls,” twice over the last week, two cable news commentators accidentally said “President Obama” when they meant “President Biden.” I rewound the tape, so to speak, both times, just to be sure, right before I had a good chuckle.

    —Have a friend who found a gun in her grandma’s dresser at 3 years old. Pointed it at mom and grandmother and tried to pull the trigger but the safety was on….and of course they yelled at her. They blamed her of course. She thought she was playing. America has a grotesque, ginormous problem. Talk about denial.

    “Jailed at 14, Shot Dead at 17”
    “The Story of Obaida Jawabra’s Childhood Under Israeli Occupation”
    (https://www.democracynow.org/2021/5/21/obaida_jawabra_palestinian_killed_israeli_forces)

    ‘israeli forces shot and killed Obaida Jawabra, a 17-year-old boy, earlier this week
    in the al-Arroub refugee camp located near the occupied West Bank city of Hebron. Obaida was shot in the chest, and witnesses say Israeli soldiers blocked an ambulance from reaching the teenager. He was taken to a local hospital by private car and later pronounced dead. Obaida, who was arrested by Israeli soldiers multiple times and featured in a 2019 short film, “Obaida,” about Israeli soldiers detaining Palestinian children, is at least the fourth Palestinian teenager shot dead by soldiers in the occupied West Bank this year. The killing of Obaida Jawabra “shows the brutality of the Israeli army when they target these children,” says Palestinian writer and researcher Mariam Barghouti. “Obaida — and I say this with complete sorrow — is just one name in a long list of many.”

    “He was the subject of a short film in 2019 produced by the children’s human rights group Defense for Children Palestine. In the film, Obaida shares his experience as a Palestinian child facing violence under the Israeli occupation. Despite his young age, he was detained at least three times by Israeli forces, starting at the age of 14.

    This is Obaida in his own words.
    At the time, he was just 15 years old….”

    Congressman Schiff:
    “The Republican Party is a Cult of Personality Around Donald Trump”
    Congressman Sciff and Zerlina Maxwell discussed the potential Republican filibuster of the Jan. 6 commission. Schiff called out Republican hypocrisy for their opposition to this bipartisan,
    independent commission in light of previous support for the highly-partisan Benghazi select committee,
    and stressed the need for a full, independent accounting to protect our democracy from future attacks.”

    • May 24, 2021 at 1:38 pm

      Zerlina Maxwell:
      “So what do you make of the fact that seven Republican senators voted to convict Donald Trump at the second impeachment – not the one you were Manager for – the second one. But some of them will not vote to approve a commission to investigate the exact same event.”

      Congressman Schiff:
      “…they’re all falling in line behind Donald Trump.
      This has been the story since the second impeachment trial. And I think it’s most vividly demonstrated by Mitch McConnell, who gave that impassioned speech after he voted to acquit the President! About how guilty the President was, and how reprehensible the conduct of the President was. And now he just doesn’t want to look into it. And why? Because (Trump) says ‘don’t support the bill’….
      They’re willing to look away, ignore what happened on January 6th, tried to bury it, try to deny it, try to pretend that it was just a bunch of tourists. And they don’t want the public to know any more about it.”

      “You can’t do a credible investigation without the power of subpoena. It’s an absurd argument.
      But it just shows where that party is right now. They are lock stock and barrel the property of Donald Trump.”

      “So we had this partisan select committee that was chaired by Trey Gowdy.
      It had one mission, tear down Hillary`s numbers. That was a terrible abuse of congressional process and of taxpayer dollars. Does that mean that you can’t have a properly constituted select committee?
      No. Congress can do the job right. But the best way to do it is to perform an independent commission like the 9/11 commission. It’s outside the political process.”

      “But we’re going to get answers one way or another.
      We’re not going to simply look the other way as a lot of Republicans would like.”

      “…all the horrors that we went through over the last year, including on January 6th, were eminently predictable and avoidable…the evidence against the president in both rounds was overwhelming.”

      “We need two functional parties. But right now we have one functional party, the Democratic Party.
      And we have a cult, an anti-democratic cult, an anti-truth cult, around the former president.”

    Democrats Come To Terms With Legislating On Infrastructure Without GOP
    “Rep. Pramila Jayapal, chair of the House Progressive Caucus,
    talks with Rachel Maddow about Democrats preparing to move on an ambitious infrastructure bill after Republicans failed to negotiate a compromise with President Biden.”

    Congresswoman Jayapal:
    “However Rachel, we have to learn the lessons from the last time around during the Obama Administration
    where we tried, and tried, and tried to work with Republicans. And we narrowed down everything we wanted to do, and we didn’t make the kind of investment we needed to make.
    At the end of the day the Republicans didn’t vote for it. That is the same party we’re dealing with except even worse, because you look at the Rescue Plan. It was so popular. And the Republicans voted No and took the dough. Because they went back to their districts. And people were like, ‘Oh this is really great – I’ve got money in my pocket, a shot in my arm, my kids are going back to school, I got my child tax credit.’ And all of a sudden, Republicans…started claiming credit for it.”

    “More than 4,200 people in Myanmar have been arrested, charged or sentenced,
    and 815 have been killed by the junta.
    The protests against the military have morphed into an armed resistance, with rebel armed groups launching attacks on junta infrastructure.
    Suu Kyi won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 for her resistance against Myanmar’s military leaders and had been hailed as a pioneer of democracy in the country. However, her international brand took a massive hit in recent years amid a brutal military campaign against the Rohingya Muslim population, with critics likening the effort to ethnic cleansing.”

    Jennifer Griswold,
    Secretary of State (CO), chair of democratic secretaries of state, to Zerlina Maxwell.
    Griswold:
    “Republicans are trying to stack the deck against American voters to take power.”
    “The key behind all of this is a coordinated attack on our democracy.”
    “Well first and foremost…I wouldn’t even call it ‘conducting an audit’.
    Conducting a sham audit. Conducting shenanigans out in Arizona is a partisan group that doesn’t have any experience in elections. And when we do election audits, there’s a whole host of best practices, including chain of custody among other things. And once that chain of custody is broken and other security procedures are not followed, then it puts the voting equipment at risk. And this could cost Arizona millions of dollars to replace this election equipment. But I think the bigger picture is that this attack on our democracy by spreading lies is not over. In fact, it’s just getting ramped up and I think we’ll be seeing it for quite some time.

    “…(democratic) secretaries of state will be running…we just have to keep our eyes on the prize, and the prize is democracy.”

    “I’m so glad to be Secretary of State of Colorado, just honored every single day because we have the securest and most accessible elections in the nation.
    So we affirmatively send a mail ballot to every registered person. We have weeks of early voting.
    We have same-day voter registration, online voter registration, automatic voter registration. And that leads to us being the securest state in which to cast a vote and one of the leaders when it comes to turnout. And every American not only deserves the same, has a right to the same. These are our Constitutional rights we’re talking about. So what can be done right now is the Senate can pass the For the People’s Act and save our democracy.”

    “So the Senate has to act.
    And then I just encourage all of your viewers to demand that their elected officials protect the right to vote.”

    Republican-led legislatures in Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Texas, and other states are passing laws that make it harder to vote. Many of these bills, which have been drafted with help from an offshoot of the conservative Heritage Foundation, will have a disproportionate impact on voters of color and are being challenged in court.
    While judges could strike down some provisions for violating a state constitution or discriminating against voters with disabilities, the appellate courts that will make the final decision include mostly Republican appointees.
    The GOP is defending the legislation as a response to voter fraud, though there is no evidence of widespread fraud. Jessica Anderson of Heritage Action, which helped with the drafting, said the bills would help “right the wrongs of November.” Heritage has long advocated voting restrictions, such as voter ID laws; as founder Paul Weyrich said in 1980, “Our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down.” The group has pledged to spend millions defending the new laws in court.
    These judges are unlikely to rule that the new voter suppression bills are racially discriminatory, but some courts could strike them down for violating the state constitution or the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
