    Pelosi Statement on LGBTQ Pride Month

    “As right-wing forces attempt to silence LGBTQ voices and threaten to wind back hard-won progress,
    the struggle against hate remains as urgent as ever. Across the country, extremist Republicans are waging an all-out assault on the safety and well-being of the LGBTQ community – from targeting trans children in Texas to bullying LGBTQ students in Florida. And on our nation’s highest court, a Republican-appointed majority is poised to severely weaken the right to privacy, which poses a direct threat to marriage equality.”

    On the last day of AANHPI Heritage month,
    members of BTS spoke in turn at the White House Presser:

    INTERPRETER: I will provide an interpretation in Korean and English. (Speaks Korean.)

    Jin said:
    Today is the last day of the AANHPI Heritage Month. We join the White House to stand with the AANHPI community and to celebrate.

    Jimin said:
    We were devastated by the recent surge of hate crimes, including Asian American hate crimes. To put a stop on this and support the cause, we’d like to take this opportunity to voice ourselves once again.

    J-Hope said:
    We are here today thanks to our ARMY — our fans worldwide, who have different nationalities and cultures and use different languages. We are truly and always grateful.

    Jungkook said:
    We still feel surprised that music created by South Korean artists reaches so many people around the world, transcending languages and cultural barriers. We believe music is always an amazing and wonderful unifier of all things.

    Suga said:
    It’s not wrong to be different. I think equality begins when we open up and embrace all of our differences.

    V said:
    Everyone has their own history. We hope today is one step forward to respecting and understanding each and every one as a valuable person.”

    Go Gauff.

    American teenager Coco Gauff says sports stars should use their platform to drive social change, calling for peace and an end to gun crime after reaching the French Open final.

    The 18-year-old wrote the message on a television camera after she reached a first Grand Slam singles final.

    “It felt right in the moment. Hopefully it gets into the heads of people in office to change things,” said Gauff.

    At the end of her on-court interview following her semi-final victory, Gauff walked to the camera to leave a message, as is traditional at the tournament, and wrote ‘Peace – end gun violence’ on the lens.

    “I really didn’t know what I was going to write even [in the] moments walking to the camera. It just felt right in that moment to write that,” said world number 23 Gauff.

    “I woke up this morning, you know, and I saw there was another shooting, and I think it’s just crazy.”

    Gauff says she feel comfortable speaking out for social change and named a list of athletes – LeBron James, Serena Williams, Billie Jean King, Naomi Osaka and Colin Kaepernick – as her role models for using their platforms.

    A First Lady Undeterred

    A pandemic. A war. A country at its breaking point. Dr. Jill Biden has faced it all with the grace and conviction that has guided her all her life—showing up for her students, her friends and family, the American people, her husband, and herself.

    By Mattie Kahn

    ““Even as a Senate spouse, I was working, going to grad school, doing campaign events, raising kids,” she remembers. The pace is intense but not new. “Showing up matters,” she explains. “That’s the feeling I get. You’re exhausted. You just do it.”

    Republicans Are Plotting To Subvert Elections Right Before Our Eyes

    By Marc Elias

    Republicans are planning to subvert future elections. They tried to overturn the election results in court in November and December 2020 and overthrow them at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. Unless they are stopped, Republicans will try again in 2022. If they fail, they will try again in 2024. Our democracy is in grave danger.

    “As I have written before,
    we are one or two elections away from potentially losing our democracy for a generation or more.
    We have the ability to stop that from happening. But only if we all act together.
    And only if we all act now. Because there simply is no time to wait.”

    Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen says the PM had a Pyrrhic victory tonight, adding that Johnson received “far worse results than Theresa May had a couple years ago, and the vote that brought down Thatcher”.

    He adds that both leaders went on to resign following the outcome of their votes – and hopes that given the mood of the public and the vote tonight, that the “cabinet would tell the prime minister that the gig’s up”.

    He told the BBC he predicts there will be a new leader of Conservatives by this year’s party conference, which is due to be held in October.

    According to Bridgen, Boris Johnson told MPs ahead of the confidence vote: “Vote for me tonight and end all this uncertainty”.

    However, he says “that’s not the case,” adding that uncertainty remains as the Commons committee looking into whether the PM deliberately misled parliament over Partygate won’t report its findings until October.

    Bridgen says that while the PM is safe for another year under current rules, until another confidence vote can be held, he adds that “rules can be changed in extreme cases”.
