      Economist Goolsbee saying inflation is happening all around the world. (Pod Save America)
      Looks like virus is driving it and supply shock. Estimates things going back to normal one year after the initial impact of Coronavirus. The infrastructure bills are paid for and Build Back Better is spread over ten years. As for the ‘polls’….the incredible rollout of actions and responses on so many levels by President Biden and the WH is what I see, bravi.

    Local TV Stations Love Democrats’ Job-Creating Infrastructure Bill

    GOP Called Out for Voting Against Their Constituents
    “From the Speaker’s Press Office:

    Local TV stations across the country are promoting President Biden and Democrats’ infrastructure bill for the once-in-a-generation investments coming to their communities – creating jobs, expanding access to affordable internet, building a world-class supply chain for small businesses, filling potholes, repairing roads and bridges, cleaning our kids’ drinking water – the list goes on and on.

    In red districts, Republican representatives are getting called out by their local news stations and on front pages for their vote against the single biggest infrastructure investment in American history.
    200 House Republicans tried to block this historic boon for communities,
    Democrats delivered, and virtually every local TV station is talking about it.

    See below for a glimpse of the wave of good coverage Democrats are riding – and the awkward questions Republicans are getting from their own local news stations:”

    Pfizer to share license for covid-19 pill,
    potentially opening up treatment to millions in low-income nations

    “U.S. pharmaceutical giant Pfizer has agreed to a license-sharing deal that would allow its experimental covid-19 drug to be manufactured more widely around the globe. It’s an agreement that the company says could give more than half of the world’s population access to the treatment, even as Pfizer rebuffs calls to grant poorer countries access to its coronavirus vaccine formula.

    The company said earlier this month that the drug, a pill regimen called paxlovid, reduced the risk of covid hospitalization or death by 89 percent when administered within three days of the onset of symptoms. It has not yet received regulatory approval in the United States, but Pfizer said that it plans to seek authorization from the Food and Drug Administration as soon as possible.”

    —–Thank you Pfizer!!

    No not imagining it…hello.

    Kyle Rittenhouse was permitted to choose his own witnessses via picking numbers out of a box!!

    That is not normal. Elie Mystal points out that this Judge’s decisions are all one way, that when you ook at the totality they are biased at every stage.

    Did we see what happened before the numbers went into the box?
    —Perhaps it was a fix to exclude jurors who did not look favorable to Rittenhouse.

    What is our response?

      Maya Wiley, Civil Rights Attorney, to Chris Hayes:

      “Well first of all,
      I think unless I hear a defense attorney say:
      “Well when I had a Black defendant or a Latino defendant (you know Kenosha is only 10% Black) he behaved exactly the same way – completely biased for the defendant”.
      Then I would be willing to say OK he’s just pro-defense.

      I think the two things
      I would point to that really for me were so deeply troubling about how he handled this trial was one: Obviously there’s recently when he threw that 6th count out,
      that weapons possession.
      Remember Kyle Rittenhouse 17 years old, under Wisconsin law is not allowed to open carry.
      He wasn’t even in lawful possession of that semi-automatic rifle.
      And was breaking curfew.
      And yet (the judge) throws out that charge that says it was a misdemeanor,
      that literally says he was breaking the law by carrying that firearm.

      That I just could not understand based on reading the statute.
      And on this very bizarre argument he seemed to be making for kids who are 16 and under who can open carry if they’re hunting.”

    AOC Calls For Censure Vote Of Rep. Gosar After He Shared Violent Anime Video

      So he tweeted that he was a hero again and there was a death note,
      and it was Joe Biden and Representative Ocasio-Cortez among others.
      And here he is escalating it.
      And what we haven`t pointed out about that killing on the anime video
      is it`s sinister

    “We Are At A Moment Of Reckoning”: Ifill On Finding Encouragement In Difficult Times

    “Sherrilyn Ifill, president and director counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, talks with Rachel Maddow about stepping down to make room for new leadership, and where she finds encouragement in what feels like a very racially fraught time.”

    • November 18, 2021 at 2:25 pm

      Sherrilyn Ifill,
      NAACP Legal Defense Fund, President and Director Counsel, is stepping down.
      She speaks to Rachel Maddow:

      “Well you know, this is life’s work for me.
      I started my career first with a fellowship at the ACLU and then at the Legal Defense Fund.
      When I left the legal defense fund the first time to go into academia, I didn’t leave behind being a civil rights lawyer. I worked with my students and started clinics on environmental justice.

      I started one of the first clinics in this country on the rights of formerly incarcerated persons.
      I started clinic on reparations. I wrote a book about lynching. I headed up a foundation that supports civil rights organizations, and then I returned to LDF.
      Whatever I am doing, this is the work.

      The decision to step down is really about what is right for an institution,
      and I have been unapologetic about my love for LDF And I will say Rachel, especially seeing what has been revealed in this country over the last five years about the need for Black institutions to be strong.
      I have worked very hard to make LDF strong and to help Americans see that civil rights institutions and civil rights work is critical, not just for the citizenship and dignity of Black people, but for the health of American democracy.

      And in order to keep those institutions strong, we have to nurture leadership,
      which is kind of my thing which I love doing. I love doing it teaching. I loved leading our young lawyers.
      I loved working with my deputy, Janai Nelson, who I had hoped would succeed me and who will succeed me.”

    • November 18, 2021 at 2:29 pm

      Maddow:
      “I realized in reading The New York Times coverage this morning
      about the reinvestigation of the Malcolm X assassination, that that is a case I’m very familiar with.
      The shortcomings of the convictions of those men, something I was very familiar with.
      I realized I was shocked, literally shocked, and actually kind of thrown back in my chair by this sense that it might be undone. That there are not just current indignities and injustices that I don’t feel hopeful about in terms of the way they’re going to resolve, but these historic ones that we have lived with our entire lives. The idea that they might be revisited, that those things might not be set in stone, that we could fix those things. It shocked me. I don’t know if it makes me feel more hopeful or not, but it made me want to ask what kind of touchstone it is for you.”

      Ifill:
      “Yes I have to say this is a very difficult time.
      It feels awful in many ways, but I don’t see it that way.
      Again with the lens of a lifetime of doing civil rights work, I always feel best and most hopeful when the truth is being surfaced.

      It is the periods when the truth is being denied, when people are saying ‘Racism isn’t a problem’.
      When people are not recognizing the truth about police violence, or problems with our criminal justice system. When people would tell me when I first started this job, ‘You have a Black president and a Black Attorney General. We don’t need the legal defense fund anymore. We don’t need civil rights work. What is voter suppression?’ Those were the darkest days.

      The days when we are surfacing the truth,
      the days when we are recognizing the truth about lynching, about historical murders.
      About papered-over and covered-over incidents.
      About histories people didn’t know about – whether it’s the Tulsa massacre or Elaine, Arkansas.

      That time, those incidents make me feel hopeful.
      It’s not pleasant. It doesn’t feel joyous, but it does feel like we are finally getting to the root of the thing.

      And I frequently paraphrase Malcolm X who talked about the importance of “surfacing the tension”.
      A civil rights work in activism doesn’t create the tension.
      It surfaces the tension that exists below the surface.”

    Remarks by President Biden on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

    “First, two of the leading rating agencies on Wall Street confirmed today —
    not a liberal think tank, two Wall Street outfits — that the economic proposals we put forward for the nation —
    the infrastructure law we just signed and the Build Back Better plan are being considered this week in Congress — will not add to inflationary pressures in the economy. (Applause.)

    And at one — and here’s what one of the agencies said, and I quote, “
    The bills do not add to inflation pressures.” Let me repeat that: “do not add…inflation pressures.”

    The reason? Because the policies I proposed, quote, “help…lift long-term economic growth via stronger productivity… labor force growth,” as well as taking “the edge off of inflation.”

    Sen. Warren on oil prices: This isn’t about inflation. This is about price gouging.

    “Democrats are pushing back on the false narrative on inflation and the economy being promoted by many Republicans, because on many measures the economy is doing very well. Sen. Elizabeth Warren joins Joy Reid with her accurate analysis of the true state of affairs.”

    • November 18, 2021 at 4:30 pm

      Senator Warren to Joy Reid:

      “We know exactly who the oil companies, what the oil companies pay attention to.
      What is their number one priority? Profits.
      And so think about it this way. If this were just ordinary inflation, we might see prices go up, but prices at the pump have gone up – why?

      Well, let me give you a hint: Chevron, Exxon have doubled their profits.
      This isn`t about inflation.
      This is about price-gouging for these guys.

      …we have got to pay attention to the fact that folks like the oil companies say,
      ‘I think it’s just another opportunity to make profits’. And we need to call them out on that.”
