    Speaker Pelosi:

    Dear Colleague: It’s About Time

    “It’s about time!
    Yesterday, we extended the Thursday, September 30th legislative day to Friday, pushing to passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework and to advance Build Back Better. But more time was needed to reach our goal of passing both bills, which we will.

    It’s about time!
    We all take great pride in the Rescue Package, which is a giant step in meeting the needs of the American people, putting hundreds of millions of vaccines of arms, money in people’s pockets, workers back in jobs and children safely back in school. There is an expiration date to some of the initiatives, so we need to extend them – for example, the Child Tax Credit, which took millions of children out of poverty, but which needs to be extended. Thanks to House Democrats’ Child Tax Credit Week of Action and indeed many more days of action, working with outside groups, we mobilized broad public support for this initiative. This is true of many aspects of the Rescue Package.

    It’s about time!
    There is an October 31st Surface Transportation Authorization deadline, after last night’s passage of a critical 30-day extension. We must pass BIF well before then – the sooner the better, to get the jobs out there.”

    NPR: Congress is seeking (its own) permission to borrow another trillion or two

    “The task keeps coming back like a bad penny:
    Congress soon must raise the debt ceiling again. It will be almost the 100th time it has done so.

    After Republicans made a big issue over the debt ceiling in 2011 and 2013,
    roiling financial markets and nearly pushing the United States into default,
    the party partnered with Democrats to raise the debt ceiling
    — without much ado —
    three times under President Trump.”


    • October 4, 2021 at 1:34 pm

      The national debt rose by almost $7.8 trillion during Trump’s time in office. McConnell was for the debt ceiling whenever it served Trump and his party’s obscene tax cuts for the wealthy = 3 times.
      Now he says Democrats must raise the debt ceiling “alone”.

      In this way Moscow Mitch shows he has the power to say what he wants whenever he wants…
      and the media will cover it.

    “There is no defense against this (trumpian) lie because the point of the lie is to assert power,
    to show “I can say what I want when I want to.”
    The power lie conjures a different reality
    and demand that you choose between your experience and the bully’s demands.”

    “When Trump claimed that millions of people voting illegally cost him the popular vote, he was not making easily disprovable factual claims: he was asserting control over reality itself.”

    “Unmoored from lived reality, the autocrat has no need to be consistent.
    Putin, for example, claimed that there were no Russian troops in newly annexed Crimean,
    then a month later affirmed that Russians hand been on the ground, then spent more than a year denying that Russian troops were in Eastern Ukraine, then breezily acknowledged that they were there.
    His shifts from lies to truthful statements were not admissions:
    they were loud, even boastful affirmatives delivered at his convenience.
    He communicated that his power enables him to say what he wants,
    when he wants, regardless of the facts.”

    Lewis Hamilton is launching a scheme that aims to boost the recruitment of black teachers in science, technology and maths (STEM) subjects.

    The project arises from the Hamilton Commission report

    addressing the lack of diversity in UK motorsport.

    Hamilton said the scheme “focuses on identifying the best way to attract black talent to STEM teaching roles”.

    The Formula 1 world champion hopes it will “create a framework the wider education industry can implement”.

    The initial two-year programme, in partnership with education charity Teach First, is to pilot a range of new approaches to identify best practices when recruiting black STEM teachers.

    It aims to support the recruitment and training of 150 black STEM teachers to work in schools serving disadvantaged communities in England.

    British seven-time world champion Hamilton said the move “is another step towards addressing barriers preventing young black students’ engagement with STEM, as identified in the Hamilton Commission report”.

    He added: “We know representation and role models are important across all aspects of society, but especially when it comes to supporting young people’s development.”

    I’ve been waiting for this kind of question. Even I could figure it out. Of course, there’s much more to add than I did – like the mere presence of our military is defending us against all our adversaries around the globe, not to mention helping to protect our allies who join us when WE need help. It’s not just keeping wars going for 20 years, then cutting the budget.

    “Sir, I humbly offer you this 650-word feature on community gardens in New Jersey in hopes that you will, in your great enlightenment and wisdom, find it to your liking,” said visibly trembling New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet, setting the journalistic token down before the Facebook CEO after having waited many hours alongside fellow pilgrims from Slate, the Chicago Tribune, The Atlantic, Time, Al Jazeera, and scores of other news outlets in a line that stretched through the social media site’s Silicon Valley offices. “Our editorial staff has labored much over this offering, and we present it to you with the utmost respect and deference. Should you see it fit to spread far and wide, optimized among both desktop and mobile audiences, we would be most grateful, sir. Thank you, and praise be unto you.” At press time, Zuckerberg had angrily cast out BBC executive editor Steve Herrmann from the facility after he failed to bow his head and offer his unending devotion to the All-Knowing Algorithm when passing by the facility’s software engineering department.

    French Church abuse: 216,000 children were victims of clergy – inquiry

    Some 216,000 children – mostly boys – have been sexually abused by clergy in the French Catholic Church since 1950, a damning new inquiry has found.

    The head of the inquiry said there were at least 2,900-3,200 abusers, and accused the Church of showing a “cruel indifference towards the victims”.

    Pope Francis “felt pain” on hearing about the inquiry’s finding, a Vatican statement said.


    Catholic church needs to clean up before it preaches to others.

    Virginia GOP Funds Anti-Semitic Ad Targeting Democratic Incumbent

    “Virginia State Del. Dan Helmer (D)

Helmer, who’s a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army reserve and the grandson of a Holocaust survivor, tells Lawrence O’Donnell the tactic shows why he must remain “committed to making sure our country doesn’t go in this direction and that we stand up against hate in our community.”

    It has nothing to do with my plan for infrastructure or building back better. Zero. Zero. Both of which, I might add, are paid for.”

    Speaker Pelosi:

    Dear Colleague on the Transformative Nature of Build Back Better for Jobs and Children

    “When I’m asked what are the three main issues facing the Congress,
    I always say: the children, the children, the children: their health, their education, the economic security of their families, a safe clean environment in which they can thrive and a world at peace in which they can reach their fulfillment. The Build Back Better agenda relates the needs of our children to the success of job creation for a strong economy.

    Jobs, children and health care:
    Build Back Better creates good-paying health care jobs, by lowering health care costs, strengthening the Affordable Care Act, expanding Medicaid and improving the benefits of Medicare. Doing so brings us closer to reaching universal health coverage in America, which is a moral, health and economic imperative.

    Jobs, children and family care:
    Build Back Better For Women is transformative for families, with the Child Tax Credit, child care, home health care, paid family and medical leave, universal pre-K, workforce development and more. We must get “children learning, parents earning” in a way that is safe and that assures women that they can follow a career path, as they meet the needs of their families.

    Jobs, children and climate: t
    he health of children and creation of jobs are central to addressing the climate crisis, to lowering emissions and to advancing the clean energy economy of the future, while advancing the priority of environmental justice, educating a workforce for the future and advancing housing initiatives that are resilient and green. In terms of national security, experts including military, diplomatic and academic leaders tell us that climate is a security issue, as changes in climate cause migration and competition for habitat and resources. They also stress that the strength of America’s economy is a measure of America’s global strength.

    We must save the planet for children, jobs and security.
    We must come to agreement on the Build Back Better Act and pass the BIF – and we will!”

    Steve Bannon pledges 20k ‘shock troops’ ready to go as he rants that ‘we control this country’

    Donald Trump’s former strategist has called on GOP to “deconstruct’ the state”.

    “If you’re going to take over the administrative state and deconstruct it, then you have to have shock troops prepared to take it over immediately,” Mr Bannon told NBC.

    “Mr Bannon spoke to the newly-formed Association of Republican Presidential Appointees, which was formed to help future GOP officials fill thousands fo federal jobs if they win the Oval Office again.

    He told the new network that he wanted to see
    “pre-trained teams ready to jump into federal agencies” at the start of the next GOP presidency.”

    “Right? We control the country. We’ve got to start acting like it.
    And one way we’re going to act like it, we’re not going to have 4,000 (shock troops) ready to go, we’re going to have 20,000 ready to go and we’re going to pick the 4,000 best and most ready in every single department.”


    —Bannon has been subpoenaed to appear before the House Jan 6 Select Committee.
    —This criminal is only free to run around on mission to ‘deconstruct the state’ because Trump pardoned him.
    —Pls plumb the depths on Bannon, ever-present key architect of doom and the Fourth Turning here and abroad.

    Congressman Jamie Raskin to Chris Hayes:

    “And you know the problem with the word ‘coup’
    is people think of a Coup as something that takes place against a president.
    This was a coup waged by the President against the Vice President and against the Congress.”

    • October 5, 2021 at 2:00 pm

      Congressman Jamie Raskin,
      National Commission to Investigate the Jan 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol Complex, to Chris Hayes:

      “I can tell you that there are voluntary witnesses who are coming in who are cooperating,
      who want to describe the whole sequence of events that led both to the inside political coup against the Vice President and the Congress waged by the President. And also the parallel insurrection which enveloped and surrounded the coup, and tried to aid that process of coercing the Vice President to reject Electoral College votes for the first time in American history. To declare a power that’s not in the Constitution. And that’s what led to him being chased out of the body, and people yelling
      “Hang Mike Pence” and so on.

      “And yet you work next to these people. And I do feel the power of the inertia of everyone forgetting it happening getting back to business.”

      “Well ‘business’ for them of course is a very simple agenda.
      You know, the Republican Party had no program adopted at its convention in 2020, for the first time I think in modern political history. There’s never been a major party without a program, without a platform.
      But it’s very clear what their agenda is:
      Voter suppression, gerrymandering of our congressional districts, use of the filibuster to thwart all progress, and then packing the courts with right-wing judges and justices to cement this whole system.

      There’s a very troubling situation, because the vast majority of the American people rejects Trump, Trumpism, violent insurrection, and all of their big lies on everything from climate change to COVID-19,
      to the election to January 6. And yet they manipulate so many of the key levers of political power in the country.”

    • October 5, 2021 at 2:02 pm

      Hayes: “The consequences have been largely absent…as far as I can tell there really hasn’t been sufficient, to my mind, accountability or sanction. It’s basically your committee that’s left with that job.”

      Congressman Raskin:
      “We are primarily a fact-finding investigative committee which is going to produce a report that I trust and hope will change American history. Because it will basically present to the American people this whole sequence of shocking events. And lay out the case for defending democracy against dictatorship and autocracy.

      Because all over the world, the dictators and the autocrats and the kleptocrats, the Putins, and the Xis,
      and the Dutertes and the war bands are simply saying ‘democracy doesn’t work, we can’t get it together we can’t move quickly enough, and you need authoritarian regimes and authoritarian rule’.

      So we’re going to lay out a very strong case for democracy. And what we need to do to repair our democracy so we’re not vulnerable to fascist violence in the future.”
