    Former President Barack Obama made a surprise visit to an after-school basketball event at the South Side YMCA, 6330 S. Stony Island Ave., on Dec. 2, 2021, in the Woodlawn neighborhood of Chicago.

    “Student-athletes from South Side schools were invited to participate in the drills practice event,
    which was attended by Chicago Bulls player Patrick Williams, Bulls general manager Marc Eversley and representatives from the Chicago Sky. While the youths practiced drills with members of the Bulls coaching staff, Obama made an unannounced entrance and addressed those in attendance about the importance of the YMCA. Obama greeted the students as they resumed drills, and toward the end of the visit he attempted to make a basket from beyond the three-point line. He made three attempts and made the final shot.”

    Obama joins Fauci on visit to school vaccination site

    Former president’s visit to District of Columbia children’s vaccine clinic part of a push more kids vaccinated
    “Mr Obama, who is the first former president since Woodrow Wilson to remain a resident of the nation’s capital after his time in office, joined Dr Fauci on an outing to a vaccine site at Kimball Elementary School in southeast Washington as part of Biden administration push to encourage parents to vaccinate their children against Covid-19 ahead of the winter season.

    The school was on Tuesday hosting a pop-up clinic targeted at children between five and 11 years of age who recently became eligible to receive age-appropriate doses of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. The city-operated clinics allow parents to get their eligible children vaccinated without appointments.”

    The film follows artist JR giving a global voice to everyday people through art.
    Directed by JR

    In “Paper & Glue,” JR uses his vision and style to desensitize the general public’s “out of sight, out of mind” approach to those who are suffering. JR uses his platform to weave together these emotionally reflective present-day portraits to represent the global voice of women and men unheard.

    How the Corporate Media’s Treatment of Inflation Abets America’s Authoritarian Turn

    “This type of coverage of the mere politics, as opposed to the underlying reality of inflation, constitutes in its own right a kind of disinformation campaign that risks turning working-class and middle-class voters back to the very Republican Party that, in actuality, has shown little care for, and in fact caused, the economic woes these Americans have experienced because of stagnating wages, high healthcare costs, and gross and growing economic inequality for which Republicans themselves have advocated.”

    What the coverage doesn’t do, and easily could, is make any attempt to explain to voters how inflation works, what’s causing it, and what would end it.

    And they could remind voters what has happened to their lives and to our democracy under Republican rule, particularly since 2016.”

    last week that his party will have No agenda next year – just trumpQ.

    While Dems have brought unemployment down to 4.2, McConnell and trumpQ leaders are promoting and promising their followers they can: Hate who they want, shoot their guns, discriminate, be as criminally violent and corrupt as they want. Check and check. Everything their convenient ‘religion’ says they are against.

      Au contraire…

      They indeed do have an agenda…it is the fulfillment of the White Southern Strategy…to stop the advance of a multi racial, multi ethnic democracy…using the 3 pillars of …racism…white supremacy… white nationalism…

    From Abortion Bans to Anti-Trans Laws, a Christian Legal Army is Waging War on America

    As the Supreme Court looks poised to uphold Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban and possibly overturn
    Roe v. Wade, we speak to The Nation’s Amy Littlefield about her investigation into the Christian legal army
    behind the Mississippi law as well as anti-trans laws across the country.
    She also critiques the mainstream pro-choice movement’s failure to center the poor and people of color.
    “There is a change coming within the movement because of its reckoning with these past missteps including, frankly, the failure to adequately protect Black women and to stand up for the safety of the people whose rights were eroded first,” says Littlefield.

    trump Personally Exposed More Than 500 People To COVID

    The Washington Post did an extensive timeline of Trump’s movements after he tested positive and reported:

    “In fact, Trump was hospitalized at Walter Reed about a week later.
    From the day he tested positive until his hospitalization, Trump came in contact with more than 500 people, either those in proximity to him or at crowded events, not including rallygoers, according to a Washington Post analysis of the president’s interactions during that period.

    Trump’s behavior was selfish, reckless, and could have, or maybe did, kill people. The idea that a president could test positive for a deadly contagious virus and lie to the American people is disqualifying in itself, but this president showed a disregard for human life that is criminal by lying to those that he personally exposed to COVID.

    Trump’s willful neglect of the pandemic led to hundreds of thousands of deaths, but it wasn’t only bad policy.
    Donald Trump’s sociopathic behavior showed a disregard for his own life and those closest to him.
    He can never be allowed to hold a position of power again.”

      thx wpw,
      but will be a rotter and say it was too angry plus other neg emotions to be a genuine children’s Christmas movie and couldn’t abide it.
      The one i love is “The Claus Family” (Finnish)
      which could not be less like the American model, which gives insight into a different culture and delights the loving heart with its gentle caring for young children.

        No way you are a rotter, brp ~ this film reflects the current status of the modern world, spoken in a old setting, how hope, love, joy and kindness must and will endure, how the bonds between species is one more delicate and magical than we think! Yes, the darkness and hate in this film is hard to take, not the usual cheery but maybe make-believe ‘christmas’ tale we prefer for children ~ but children know, they feel the intensity of modern day, and in this film it is shown to be something to grow stronger through mastering!!! Especially when Maggie Smith ‘unintentionally’ revealed an elven ear at the end… brilliant!! Absolutely brilliant!! Things are not always what they seem!!!
        Best joys of the season to you and yours!

        • December 9, 2021 at 12:33 pm

          Fab, thx wpw for this. In my view,
          movies that create fear and paranoia in children…why? (Frozen II was continuous fear.) Visual anything has power over the psyche. It is so easy and cheap to sling around fear and anger and violence. Creating with humor and sweetness takes something else. Yes imo Christmas magic especially should be sweet for children. They’re not small adults with our outlook. Or receptacles for as you say”darkness and hate” which adults have manufactured and then try to justify. Let’s show them what love is!

    Fact Sheet:
    U.S. Strategy on Countering Corruption

    “Corruption threatens United States national security, economic equity, global anti-poverty and development efforts, and democracy itself. But by effectively preventing and countering corruption and demonstrating the advantages of transparent and accountable governance, we can secure a critical advantage for the United States and other democracies.”

    President Joe Biden
    June 3, 2021

    “Today, in line with the President’s direction,
    the Biden-Harris Administration is releasing the first-ever United States Strategy on Countering Corruption.
    The Strategy outlines a whole-of-government approach to elevating the fight against corruption. It places particular emphasis on better understanding and responding to the threat’s transnational dimensions, including by taking additional steps to reduce the ability of corrupt actors to use the U.S. and international financial systems to hide assets and launder the proceeds of corrupt acts.

    To guide implementation, the Strategy organizes U.S. Government efforts to fight corruption under five
    mutually-reinforcing pillars:”
