    ‘Republicans Have To Cheat In Order To Win’

    Fmr AG Holder on gerrymandering:
    “Former Attorney General Eric Holder, chair of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee,
    talks with Rachel Maddow about why Democrats benefit from fair voting district maps
    and the importance of Americans keeping the pressure on politicians to make a priority of passing legislation to protect voting rights.”

    • August 13, 2021 at 1:37 pm

      Summer of direct action.

      AG Holder:
      “The numbers that we saw today show that the country is younger, it’s more diverse, it’s more urban, it’s more suburban. It’s less rural. Those numbers should be used in a way that comes up with representative democracy in both our state legislatures, as well as the United States House of Representatives.
      And the way to do that is to ban partisan and racial gerrymandering. This bill would ban partisan gerrymandering.”

      “Power seeks nothing without a demand.”
      “Raising the consciousness of people by demonstrating, by getting arrested, by doing the things that ended segregation. If you had asked people in the 1950’s, ‘Do you think marching, demonstrating is going to bring down the system of American apartheid?’ They probably would have said ‘No that’s not going to happen’. And we shouldn’t lose faith right now…citizens can make a change.
      Citizens need to be in the streets.
      Citizens need to be demonstrating.
      Citizens need to be calling their representatives to demand the kind of change that will make this country more representative, make our democracy more fair.”

    Teachers Union Leader Says Vaccine Misinformation ‘Has Seeped Into Our Union’

    Huffpost: “Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers,
    made headlines on Sunday when she came out in support of vaccine mandates for educators after having previously opposed them. Weingarten drew praise for reevaluating her stance, since AFT is the second largest teachers union in the country, with 1.7 million members, and has played a prominent role in shaping school policies amid the pandemic.

    But the union itself has not changed its position on mandates ― only Weingarten personally.”

      Every teacher should be vaccinated, imo anybody and everybody around children should be vaccinated.
      According to a doctor on NPR yesterday, get vaccinated or you will get Delta.

    Intranasal COVID-19 Vaccine Reduces Disease Severity and Blocks Transmission
    “Lancaster University Scientists have developed a COVID-19 vaccine that can be delivered via a nasal spray.
    In a preclinical trial, the vaccine was found to decrease both disease severity and transmission of the virus.
    The study results are published in the journal iScience.”

    Press Briefing by White House COVID-19 Response Team and Public Health Officials

    “In the past week, Florida has had more COVID cases than all 30 states with the lowest case rates combined. And Florida and Texas alone have accounted for nearly 40 percent of new hospitalizations across the country.
    We all know that vaccinations are the very best line of defense against COVID and how we end this pandemic. That is why we’ve been tireless in our efforts to get more and more Americans vaccinated.”

    Thinking about this authoritarian playbook.
    Proud Boys (part of the insurrectionist) and Trump supporters threatening violence against our nurses, and doctors, Dr. Fauci, the CDC…

    Isn’t this what happened under Stalin and Hitler?
    As in the emerging regime tries to kill off anyone with an intelligent critique or alternate vision, such as discrediting
    and getting rid of Doctors, Professors who can inform the public.

    imo TrumpQ and their failed coup outrage still engaging in disinformation,
    Is how you know they plan to do Jan 6 over again.

    All civil servants in Canada must be vaccinated by the end of October or risk losing their jobs, the government has announced.

    The mandate also applies to workers in federally regulated sectors, like rail.

    Commercial air, cruise and interprovincial train passengers must also be vaccinated to travel.

    Canada has one of the highest Covid vaccination rates in the world, with 81% of eligible people having received at least one dose.

    “This is the best way to end the pandemic and allow the economy to safely remain open,” said Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc on Friday.

    🚨If you’re getting ACA now and haven’t tried already, it’s worth a call to see if you can save on or change your plan. I took a chance and called. Had a rep walk me through options and switched me to a new plan saving me $100/mo premiums with lower co-pays, lower out of pockets and better coverage. I thought the $10/mo savings my carrier gave me after the Biden Rescue Plan was the best I could do. Call, don’t do it by yourself. Deadline is tomorrow August 15th.

    Bayer to pull glyphosate from stores due to cancer lawsuits

    “Bayer announced it would take glyphosate off of store shelves by 2023 to avoid future costly lawsuits related to the chemicals potential to cause cancer.”

    “Jennifer Sass, with the Natural Resources Defense Council, said in 2018 that Monsanto and other companies were undermining objective scientific inquiry into the correlation between the chemical and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
    “We must continue to resist the endless lobby campaign of Monsanto and the chemical industry
    and protect government scientists and chemical assessment programs,
    to let them do the important work of generating credible publicly available chemical hazard assessments on glyphosate, and all the other chemicals to which we are routinely exposed in our food,
    our drinking water, in household products,
    in building materials and through so many other everyday routes of exposure,” Sass wrote.
    (https://www.courthousenews.com/bayer-to-pull-glyphosate-from-stores-due-to-cancer-lawsuits/)

    —-Of course Monsanto/Bayer are still trying to claim there is ‘nothing wrong’ with glyphosate while undermining scientific enquiry. Users who have contracted non-Hodgkin lymphoma around the world continue to sue. Let’s make sure they pull it off the shelves permanently. We are eating and breathing this toxic stuff everywhere in our fields, schools, parks and crops.
