    Stacey Abrams, Fair Fight:
    “On the new voting rights compromise from Senate Democrats: “I am excited and very supportive of the Freedom to Vote Act. It takes the best intentions that we have for protecting our democracy and concretizes it.”

    • September 15, 2021 at 11:44 am

      Ms. Abrams:

      “And where we are in this moment in our history,
      we are under assault by those who would declare themselves insurrectionist who would undermine the very fundamental premise of our nation by undermining our democracy.

      And so I want the Department of Justice to be at the forefront of pushing back against these laws.
      I want them to be at the forefront demanding action. But we also need our Congress to step up.
      We need our Executive branch, we need our Judicial branch, and we need our Legislative branches.

      And the Freedom to Vote Act ensures that the Legislative branch takes its step.
      And what we’re doing while we wait, is making sure that the Justice Department who works for all of us, that they are doing their best to ensure and protect our access to the right to vote. And hopefully with these two pieces in place, we will have a judiciary that recognizes that its responsibility is not partisanship, but patriotism, and will defend the right to vote and start to reverse some of the terrible decisions they’ve made in the last decade.”

      Hayes: “What do you think about voting by mail as a tool?”

      Ms. Abrams:
      “Georgia Republicans pioneered access to voting by mail in 2005, 2006.
      And they proved over the course of years that it is a very effective way of voting. So effective than in 2018, we strongly encouraged every voter to use it.
      And we saw a shift in the population that used to vote by mail.
      What happened in 2020 is that we recognize that in this day and age, in a modern era,
      being able to vote by mail is an essential part of participating in our democracy.
      Everyone was promising that COVID would be over — certainly, some people were promising COVID would be over. We find ourselves in the second year of this process, a second year of this pandemic.
      But what we do know is that vote by mail is safe,
      It’s secure, and it provides even greater access to democracy because communities that rely on it,
      like the disabled, like the elderly, should not be the only ones who have the ability to access our democracy when challenges happen.It works. It’s safe, it’s good.
      And Republicans have spent more than a decade proving it, and we believe it now.”

    • September 15, 2021 at 11:48 am

      On McConnell claiming the new GOP voter suppression bills are ‘not based on race’:

      Ms. Abrams:
      “We need to make certain that no matter where you live in America, your right to vote is real and protected. And I call on Mitch McConnell and all of his colleagues to stand with Democrats and say that we believe in patriotism over partisanship, and that the Freedom to Vote Act is going to be the bill that makes it so.”

    on 2.8 Million Americans Gaining Health Care in the 2021 Special Enrollment Period

    “These numbers are encouraging, but we have more work to do to drive down the cost of health care for all Americans. My Build Back Better Agenda would lower prescription drug costs for millions of Americans by letting Medicare negotiate drug prices; provide health care premium tax cuts for nine million Americans that reduce costs an average of $600; and deliver quality, affordable care to millions more.”

    “I urge Congress to act quickly to deliver for the American people—to keep up the vital work of expanding access and lowering health care costs across the board, and to continue building on the strong foundation of the Affordable Care Act.”

    My Thoughts on Manchin’s Compromise Bill
    Marc Elias, Democracy Docket

    Marc Elias:
    (excerpt from this must-read)
    “One of the biggest objections to the framework Senator Manchin announced in June
    related to a national voter identification requirement. The new bill permits states to decide whether to require voter identification, but broadens the list of acceptable IDs for states that choose to require them. Under the new bill, states must allow utility bills and leases as well as student IDs and virtually any identification issued by a governmental entity to serve as an acceptable ID. In effect, the bill would require states with stricter ID laws to accept these documents as well, thereby reducing the disenfranchisement caused by strict ID laws in many red states.”

    • September 15, 2021 at 12:35 pm

      Elias to Hayes:
      “It is a very good bill. It’s a very good voting bill.
      And it gives people the tools to protect the right to vote and ensure that Republican states follow it. Because we can’t assume that the State of Texas is going to simply read this law and say, ‘Great, now we’re going to do all these things’. So it’s a really good bill.”

    Hello. Happy to be here. Still recovering. Never know what each day is going to bring. Biggest issue is the night sweats that interrupt my sleep. Had two nights in a row of little sleep so yesterday was NOT a good day. Slept better last night, not great, but enough that I feel better today. Did have one sweat, but managed to go back to sleep quickly. I have an appt. with one of our PAs tomorrow afternoon. Not sure how successful or how much help it will be. Worth a try. Our PC is out on maternity leave.

    Hooray for CA! Thanks to everyone for all the hard work. Trumpism is beginning to show itself, huh?

        I have a number of days in a row where I feel good. Then, the night sweats interrupt my sleep so much that I don’t get the rest I need at night. Two nights in a row of that and yesterday I “done.” I have taken melatonin for years. Guess what my daughter saw advertised this morning and when she went out to get groceries, she got a bottle. Time release Melatonin. It is made by NatureMade. She had to go to Walgreen’s. It is not with the regular vitamins. It is with the Sleep aids. We are going to share the bottle. 🙂

        • September 16, 2021 at 9:24 am

          Have a friend who swears by the time release version, but the chemical versions just keep me awake!

            I did okay. Had one “halfway” bad nightsweat, but was able to go back to sleep fairly easily. Will try for a few nights and see how it goes.

            • September 17, 2021 at 10:04 am

              Hi…may take a few days for your body to attune, in any case melatonin is harmless and good for the brain (not needed by young people). Not me but some take a 5m dose. You could try taking a 2.5 and then have another one there ready when you wake up – the one i use is Source Naturals.

    Elite US gymnast Simone Biles has testified before the Senate about abuse she suffered at the hands of disgraced former team doctor, Larry Nassar.

    Former teammates Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney also appeared before the committee, along with FBI Director Christopher Wray.

    The committee is examining shortcomings in the FBI’s investigation into Nassar, later convicted of sexually abusing girls.

    He is serving a life sentence in jail.

    “I blame Larry Nasser, and I also blame an entire system that enabled and perpetrated his abuse,” said Ms Biles, the most decorated Olympic gymnast of all-time.

    “If you allow a predator to harm children, the consequences will be swift and severe,” she added.

    Gymnast Maggie Nichols – the first victim to report her abuse to USA Gymnastics – also testified.

    They were some of the more than 200 women who gave powerful impact statements to a court in 2018, detailing Nassar’s abuse when he was the sports doctor of the United States women’s national gymnastics team.

    in which Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, was so alarmed at Donald Trump’s
    post-election loss behavior that he made himself a bulwark to Trump’s use of nuclear weapons

      (some of the story so far…Dane County Clerk Scott McDonnell got a hokey email demanding the preservation of 2020 election records. All kinds of problems with the emails…signed by Spencer Gableman but sent by a John Delta…from a gmail address…with a PDF attached to it authorized by ((former Trump administration official) Andrew Kloster…letterhead looks like copy of a screen cap of the state’s seal. Listen to learn how the data may be linked to “Hitchhiker’s Guide To the Galaxy.)

  23. September 15, 2021 at 2:35 pm

    Scott McDonell, Dane County Clerk, former WI judge:

    “I think there was an attempt to send it (aforementioned email) to all the county clerks.
    I know some of them received it and some of them, they went straight to their spam folders. So they read the news reporting and then started looking for it.”

    “Besides this missive which was strange in a lot of ways. It is from a random Gmail address. It had a PDF attached to it that the metadata suggests was written by potentially a former Trump administration official who’s not known to be attached to this. It didn’t seem to be on real letterhead. The name on the Gmail address didn’t match the address on the Gmail address. In fact had a different name, somebody named John Delta, if that’s even a thing. A lot of obvious red flags here. Was this actually the first purported official communication you’ve received about this audit, or have they been in touch with you before this in some more official way?

    “No this is the first communication I got from Mr. Gableman – assuming that was Spencer Gableman! So yes here are a lot of red flags on that e-mail as you pointed out. And it’s sort of like phishing 101 – you don’t open a fake Gmail account. You don’t send something to that. You know the name didn’t match, or where the address was from. And this is the person who’s supposedly in charge of checking to make sure our Election was honest and fair, and it’s pretty scary.”

    “The thing is (the email) didn’t really ask for anything. And honestly the things that he was sort of saying we should preserve the municipal clerks don’t have. All these records reside with county. He first made this request to the Wisconsin Election Commission thinking they had this data and they said ‘No, this is at the county level’.

    “It does sound like even the questions that he’s asking and the supposed information and records that he’s asking for, betray a fundamental lack of understanding about how elections are run in the state. Is that fair?”

    “Right and he references ‘preserving the voting machines’. Well the voting machines really are dumb terminals, Rachel. They really don’t have any information on them…there’s nothing on those machines. He could have asked someone and found that out.”

    • September 15, 2021 at 2:37 pm

    Permafrost Thaw in Siberia Creates a Ticking ‘Methane Bomb’ of Greenhouse Gases, Scientists Warn

    “In 2020, temperatures in the region rose nearly 11 degrees Fahrenheit above normal, causing the limestone to release ancient methane deposits”

    “Published by the Climate Crisis Advisory Group (CCAG), it calls for a “global state of emergency”
    as temperatures continue to climb in Siberia and other Arctic regions.
    Permafrost covers 65 percent of Russian lands, but it’s melting fast.

    “Scientists have been shocked that the warm weather conducive to permafrost thawing is occurring roughly 70 years ahead of model projections,” the CCAG warning states. It also points out that the Arctic could lose 89 percent of its permafrost by 2100, the Moscow Times reports.

    The CCAG report cautions that warming temperatures could be pushing the Arctic toward an “irreversible” tipping point, causing the release of methane and other gases, as well as crumbling infrastructure in Siberia, including dams and a nuclear power plant.

    “The story is simple,” the report concludes.
    “Climate change is happening faster than anticipated. One consequence—the loss of ice in the polar regions—is also a driver for more rapid global heating and disastrously rapid global sea level rise.”

    Italy is to make it compulsory for all workers to have a Covid “green pass” – proof of vaccination, a negative test or recovery from the virus.

    The measures are a first for Europe and some of the strictest in the world.

    Anyone without a pass will reportedly face suspension from work and may have their pay stopped after five days.

    The measure, due to come into force on 15 October, aims to boost vaccinations in a country that has been badly hit by the virus.

    Green pass certificates for Covid-19, provided both digitally and on paper, are already required to access Italian train stations, cinemas, restaurants, gyms and swimming pools.

    School staff are also required to show a pass and some teachers have reportedly been turned away from work.
