    Peace to Shinzo Abe, his family and all of Japan.

    May the person who took his life be brought to justice.

    “It’s very difficult to obtain a gun in Japan.
    Firearms are tightly controlled, and strict laws have been in place for decades.
    The original firearms control law (from 1958) states: “The possession of firearms and swords is prohibited.”

    Of the G7 (the group of wealthy economies), Japan has by far the lowest level of gun ownership per head of population, at just 0.3 per 100 people,according to data from Small Arms Survey.

    Handguns are banned outright,
    although it is possible to own a weapon for hunting.”

    “I am stunned, outraged, and deeply saddened by the news that my friend Abe Shinzo,
    former Prime Minister of Japan, was shot and killed. He was a champion of the friendship between our people.

    The United States stands with Japan in this moment of grief.”

      Statement by President Biden on the June Jobs Report

      JULY 08, 2022

      “Today, we learned that our private sector has recovered all of the jobs lost during the pandemic,
      and added jobs on top of that. This has been the fastest and strongest jobs recovery in American history, and it would not have been possible without the decisive action my Administration took last year to fix a broken COVID response, and pass the American Rescue Plan to get our economy back on track.

      In the second quarter of this year, we created more jobs than in any quarter under any of my predecessors in the nearly 40 years before the pandemic. We have more Americans working in the private sector today than any day during Donald Trump’s Presidency – more people than any time in our history.”

    The billionaire blocking off Montana’s wildlife:
    ‘Like fencing people out of Walmart’

    Exclusion fencing stretches for miles on the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana,
    disrupting the natural migration of elk
    “The fences Joe Ricketts erected around his ranch in the middle of the Blackfeet reservation are a deadly hazard for wildlife.”

    “Almost immediately after their new billionaire neighbor put up miles of 5ft fences around his Montana ranch, complaints started coming in to the Blackfeet tribe.”

    “In photos and videos captured by Blackfeet tribal members and reviewed by the Guardian,
    animals such as elk, deer, moose and grizzly bears
    can be seen struggling to navigate around or over the fences
    as they follow a historical migration path.
    Sometimes, they are trapped in corners of the fences,
    or wounded and limping after failed attempts to jump over the barriers.
    On numerous occasions, mother moose have been seen separated from their young.”

      “If all humanity disappeared, the rest of life would benefit enormously.
      The biosphere would literally breathe a sigh of relief, as forests regenerated and endangered species revived.” (E.O. Wilson)

      we are the arrogant yet disposable species. The loss of any other species, like ants, would result in
      “major extinctions of others species and probably partial collapse of some ecosystems.”(Wilson).
      Our presence is negligible in terms of biomass, but we’re the first species to change the physical, chemical, and bio balance of our planet. In ONE century we’ve poisoned land, water and air with toxic chemicals (which we injest at cost), stripped the earth of natural resources, forests, exhausted the soil. Every mammal except humans get along with their environment. But us – we just move in and consume, repeat, like a virus. Biological extinction hasn’t happened like this since dinosaurs were wiped out 65 million years ago. imo hard not to think we deserve what we get.
      —-when we get along with the planet we will be happy.

        I like to tell climate deniers, resource abusers, pollution creators, best be careful, Mother Earth is belching and passing flatus, as in volcano eruptions, earthquakes. She is warning us to start behaving or she will eliminate human beings and start over with a better choice than us. Folks look at me like I have a few screws loose, but I like to believe that what they hear may stick in some far corner of their brain.

    Comey and McCabe, Who Infuriated Trump, Both Faced Intensive I.R.S. Audits

    “Maybe it’s a coincidence, or maybe somebody misused the I.R.S. to get at a political enemy,”

    Eisenhower Executive Office Building

    “And so, there is a lot at stake. We cannot wait for Congress to act. Congress must act.
    But also, we cannot wait for Congress to act, which is why the President, Joe Biden, this morning, earlier today issued executive orders around what we will do at the federal level to ensure that women are not impeded in terms of their right to interstate travel and also that they will have access to the medication that they need, which, by the way, the FDA approved, I believe, over 20 years ago.”

    “I will always remember the work we did to strengthen our alliance, the moving experience of traveling to Hiroshima and Pearl Harbor together, and the grace he and his wife Akie Abe showed to me and Michelle.”

    “Michelle and I send our deepest condolences to the people of Japan who are very much in our thoughts at this painful moment.”

    “I am shocked and saddened by the assassination of my friend and longtime partner Shinzo Abe in Japan.
    Former Prime Minister Abe was devoted to both the country he served and the extraordinary alliance between the United States and Japan.”

    The CBO has found that the Democratic plan that would allow Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices would save the country $287 billion.

    “McConnell is giving Democrats another issue to run on this fall.”

    • July 10, 2022 at 9:26 am

      Estimated Budgetary Effects of Subtitle I of Reconciliation Recommendations for Prescription Drug Legislation

      “CBO estimates that enacting this legislation would result in a net decrease in the unified deficit totaling $287.6 billion over the 2022-2031 period.
      That decrease in the deficit would result from a decrease in direct spending of $249.2 billion and an increase in revenues of $38.4 billion.
      Some of those budgetary effects are associated with programs that are classified as off-budget.
      The decrease in the on-budget deficit over that period would be $276.7 billion.
      This estimate is based on language posted by the Senate Committee on Finance.”

    Congressman Raskin says ‘Three rings of interwoven attack’ operated toward Jan. 6 attack

    Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md. gave an opening statement on July 12
    as the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack presented its findings to the public.
    The focus of the hearing was on extremist far-right groups like the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers and the role they played in the Capitol insurrection.

    He spoke about the evidence that would be covered in Tuesday’s hearing. Said that no president in American history had ever “engaged in any effort to influence, delay or obstruct”
    Congress’s work in verifying an election.

    Rep. Raskin says Trump actively fired up supporters on social media ahead of Jan. 6

  65. July 13, 2022 at 1:00 pm

    Congressman Raskin
    calls on American public to defend democracy in wake of Jan. 6 insurrection.
    In his closing statement on July 12 he invoked the Founding Fathers,
    saying that at the start of the Republic,
    “They actually warned everyone about Donald Trump.
    Not by name, of course, but in the course of advising about the certain prospect that
    ambitious politicians
    would try to mobilize
    violent mobs
    to tear down our own institutions
    in service of their insatiable ambitions.”

  66. July 13, 2022 at 1:04 pm

    “On January 6th, Trump knew the crowd was angry. He knew the crowd was armed.
    He sent them to the Capitol anyway. You might imagine that our founders would have been shocked to learn
    that an American president would one day come to embrace and excuse political violence against our own institutions, or knowingly sent an armed mob to attack the capital to usurp the will of the people.” (Raskin)

    More than 150 police officers were bloodied, injured and wounded in the armed Jan 6 insurrection.

    The Jan 6 Committee has conducted more than 1,000 interviews,
    seeking critical information and documents from people witness to, or involved in, the violence that day.

  67. July 13, 2022 at 1:37 pm

    “After the 1/6 Committee presented evidence that Trump incited the insurrection,

    secretaries of state are being asked to ban the former president from the ballot.” (Easley)
