    Barack Obama shares his favorite books of 2021, from medieval fiction to 1960s crime thriller
    (Edward Segarra)

    “Art always sustains and nourishes the soul,” Obama captioned the post. “But for me, music and storytelling felt especially urgent during this pandemic year—a way to connect even when we were cooped up.”

    Congressman Adam Schiff:
    GOP Seems To Be Putting In Place Apparatus For Overturning 2024 Election

    “The House voting on Mark Meadows being referred to the Department of Justice for contempt of Congress
    after refusing to comply fully with a subpoena from the Jan. 6 select committee is discussed by Rep. Adam Schiff, a member of that committee. He joins Joy Reid to discuss.”

  4. December 15, 2021 at 4:40 pm

    “These texts leave no doubt: the White House knew exactly what was happening at the Capitol.
    Members of Congress, the press, and others wrote to Mark Meadows as the attack was underway.”
    (Vice Chair Rep. Liz Cheney tweeted)

    “Cheney’s comment matches the language of the statute.
    It states, “Whoever corruptly … obstructs, influences, or impedes any official proceeding, or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.”
    That law defines an “official proceeding” as including “a proceeding before the Congress.”

    “Highlights from Senator Rev. Raphael Warnock’s impassioned speech to the Senate
    on the need to make an exception to the filibuster to pass voting rights legislation that will save democracy in the United States, just like they made an exception to the filibuster for raising the debt ceiling.”

    Fox News hosts urged Meadows to push Trump to stop January 6 attack, texts show

    “Washington — As a mob of former President Donald Trump’s supporters violently breached the U.S. Capitol on January 6, three hosts from Fox News and the president’s eldest son privately implored then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to push the president to call for an end to the mayhem, according to text messages revealed by the House select committee probing the Capitol assault.

    The messages, read aloud by Congresswoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming on Monday night, were among the roughly 9,000 pages of emails and text messages Meadows turned over to the House panel before he stopped cooperating with investigators.”

    Election Officials Gain Defenders Against Trump Republicans Bent On Corrupting Democracy

    “Bob Bauer, co-chair of the Election Official Legal Defense Network,
    talks with Rachel Maddow about the rise in threats against nonpartisan election workers and the work being done to bolster their legal protections and to brace for 2024. “

    “Last night, the collection grew, as Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland shared a text one lawmaker sent to Meadows on Nov. 4, 2020. If you saw Rachel’s A block from last night, you probably noticed this one:

    “HERE’s an AGRESSIVE STRATEGY: Why can t the states of GA NC PENN and other R controlled state houses declare this is BS (where conflicts and election not called that night) and just send their own electors to vote and have it go to the SCOTUS.”

    In the interest of accuracy,
    I’ve published this exactly as it appeared, and included the abbreviations, typos, and grammatical errors
    that were part of the original. That said, what the unidentified Republican member was clearly referring to was a corrupt strategy in which GOP state officials in Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and other states with Republican-led legislatures would agree to send pro-Trump slates of electors, regardless of voters’ will.
    At that point, according to the plan, there’d be a legal dispute, which the conservative-dominated U.S. Supreme Court could try to resolve.”

      Crystal Mason cast a provisional ballot on advice from a neighbor at the polls – it was rejected.
      After that neighbor told an election judge he thought she was on supervised release – the local Republican judge had her arrested for ‘illegal voting’. She was offered 10 years’ probation (for being innocent)
      which she rejected. Crystal was convicted to five years in prison.

    Senate Democrats get serious about protecting elections, voting rights

    “Senator Maggie Hassan talks with Rachel Maddow about the looming partisan threat to U.S. democracy
    and her change of heart about the Senate filibuster rule that Republicans are hiding behind
    to allow state Republicans to compromise the integrity of the election process.”

    • December 17, 2021 at 12:56 pm

      (NH) Senator Hassan who previously did not support carving out the filibuster is now urgently calling for the Senate to change the rules to allow and up or down vote to protect the right to vote.

      From her speech on the Senate floor yesterday:

      “Congress has a responsibility to act now,
      to ensure that the right of every American to vote is never taken away.
      We must pass legislation to prevent partisan politicians from rejecting the will of the People,
      and overturning election results.
      And because that effort here in Congress is being blocked by a minority which is abusing its power,
      I believe the time has come to change the Senate rules to allow a straight up or down majority vote
      on this fundamental issue of democracy.

      We must change the Senate rules to protect the right to vote.
      Because if we don’t,
      we face a very different kind of Election Day than we have now.
      If the partisans who are attacking democracy have their way,
      our Tuesday Election Day In November will be different.

      We’ll wake up, cast our vote, drop our kids at school, go to work.
      We’ll tune back in at the end of the day to see the election results.
      Only to learn that the vote tally is being ignored.
      That our votes don’t matter much.

      We’ll learn that our legislators are going to throw out the results and pick their own winner.
      We’ll see an Election Day that is a charade,
      just like in countries where democracy doesn’t exist.
      Our democracy is too important to allow a miniority of this body to let it slip away.
      We must pass legislation to protect American democracy.
      Our country depends on it.”

    Statement from Press Secretary Jen Psaki

    “Senator Manchin’s comments this morning on FOX are at odds with his discussions this week with the President, with White House staff, and with his own public utterances. Weeks ago, Senator Manchin committed to the President, at his home in Wilmington, to support the Build Back Better framework that the President then subsequently announced. Senator Manchin pledged repeatedly to negotiate on finalizing that framework
    “in good faith.”

    On Tuesday of this week,
    Senator Manchin came to the White House and submitted—to the President, in person, directly—
    a written outline for a Build Back Better bill
    that was the same size and scope as the President’s framework,
    and covered many of the same priorities. While that framework was missing key priorities,
    we believed it could lead to a compromise acceptable to all. Senator Manchin promised to continue conversations in the days ahead, and to work with us to reach that common ground. If his comments on FOX and written statement indicate an end to that effort, they represent a sudden and inexplicable reversal in his position,
    and a breach of his commitments to the President and the Senator’s colleagues in the House and Senate.

    Senator Manchin claims that this change of position is related to inflation,
    but the think tank he often cites on Build Back Better—the Penn Wharton Budget Institute—issued a report less than 48 hours ago that noted the Build Back Better Act
    will have virtually no impact on inflation in the short term,
    and, in the long run,
    the policies it includes will ease inflationary pressures.
    Many leading economists with whom Senator Manchin frequently consults also support Build Back Better.

    Build Back Better lowers costs that families pay.
    It will reduce what families pay for child care. I
    t will reduce what they pay for prescription drugs.
    It will lower health care premiums.
    And it puts a tax cut in the pockets of families with kids. I
    f someone is concerned about the impact that higher prices are having on families, this bill gives them a break.

    Senator Manchin cited deficit concerns in his statement.
    But the plan is fully paid for,
    is the most fiscally responsible major bill that Congress has considered in years,
    and reduces the deficit in the long run.
    The Congressional Budget Office report that the Senator cites
    analyzed an unfunded extension of Build Back Better.
    That’s not what the President has proposed, not the bill the Senate would vote on,
    and not what the President would support.
    Senator Manchin knows that:
    The President has told him that repeatedly, including this week, face to face.

    Likewise, Senator Manchin’s statement about the climate provisions in Build Back Better are wrong.
    Build Back Better will produce a job-creating clean energy future for this country—including West Virginia.

    Just as Senator Manchin reversed his position on Build Back Better this morning,
    we will continue to press him to see if he will reverse his position yet again,
    to honor his prior commitments and be true to his word.

    In the meantime,
    Senator Manchin will have to explain to those families paying $1,000 a month for insulin
    why they need to keep paying that,
    Instead of $35 for that vital medicine.
    He will have to explain to the nearly two million women
    who would get the affordable day care they need to return to work
    why he opposes a plan to get them the help they need.
    Maybe Senator Manchin can explain to the millions of children
    who have been lifted out of poverty,
    in part due to the Child Tax Credit,
    why he wants to end a program that is helping achieve this milestone—we cannot.

    We are proud of what we have gotten done in 2021:
    the American Rescue Plan,
    the fastest decrease in unemployment in U.S. history,
    the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law,
    over 200 million Americans vaccinated,
    schools reopened,
    the fastest rollout of vaccines to children anywhere in the world,
    and historic appointments to the Federal judiciary.

    But we will not relent in the fight to help Americans with their child care,
    health care,
    prescription drug costs,
    and elder care—
    and to combat climate change.
    The fight for Build Back Better is too important to give up.
    We will find a way to move forward next year.”

    Manchin:

    Shall you be attending confession and midnight mass on Christmas Eve?
    —just curious.

    THANK YOU, JEN PSAKI !!!

    Media do not play both sidey.
    Tell people what’s IN THE BILL and not the pro-insurrection Fox version.
    Look to the future of America and an end to darkness and delusion.

    Media what do you really want to see?
    —Pick a side and stick with it.

    Gary Walton,
    a conservative West Virgina resident who voted 100% for trump:

    Said just now that West Virginia
    needs the BBB for economy and jobs,
    and WV families need the financial support.

    Mr. Walton:
    “The cost of living is so high in WV that you can’t afford to buy anything.”

    Mr. Walton on Manchin:
    “I think it’s all what he wants to hear about – money in his pocket.
    “I want him to support us and support us financially because we are struggling in West Virginia.”

    Mr. Walton: About whether to support more programs
    for less years or
    fewer programs for 10 years:
    “i would say get this started…there’s a lot of people suffering who need this right now.”

      100% Trump supporter Gary Walton’s response to Manchin above:
      —He wants the BBB NOW.

      We know the hard part is that faction is so ideologically blinded.
      They know that trump and his party is against the BBB and any financial help for their struggling state.
      But still they’ll vote for gop candidates even if worse than Manchin.

      That said trump voters in WV emphatically need and want the Build Back Better program
      for their families,
      and from the beginning
      wanted the 3.5 trillion program.

      Manchin is lying.

    Chief Grinch Award to Manchin.

    He didn’t warn Sen. Schumer (or anyone) this was coming,
    after telling President Biden personally at his home in Wilmington otherwise, earlier this week.

    Instead, Manchin broke the news to his Fox buddies.
    Looks like he is party to the trumpQ undermining of the American people – days before Christmas.
