    Bill Russell died on Sunday at 88 years. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama in 2011 for his lifelong efforts battling systematic racism through protests and vocal opposition. Mr. Russell was an 11-time Celtics champion.

    “During a trip to Copenhagen, President Obama spent time with young leaders hailing from 28 countries
    all across Europe who are making an impact in their communities. President Obama and the group tackled the challenges to democracy around the globe, the importance of a positive vision for democracy, and the promise and potential of the next generation of leaders to chart a better course.” (Obama Foundation)

    Veterans call rejection of toxic-exposure bill ‘a slap in the face’

    Turner, who has been on the Capitol steps for three days, compared the situation to watching “political poker” while some veterans suffer….With her outside the Capitol, she said, are some veterans who are battling terminal cancers. They’ve “chosen to literally spend their last days of life sitting here.”

    The daughters of convicted 1/6 defendant Guy Reffitt said that if their dad got seven plus years, Trump deserves life in prison.

    “I think it paints a bigger picture to mark my dad as this horrible person and then having him prosecuted like this when somebody is maybe even able to get elected again. It doesn’t seem right to me.”

    “Trump deserves life in prison if my father is in prison for this long.”

    “Tonight’s news is also proof that it’s possible to root out terrorism without being at war in Afghanistan.
    And I hope it provides a small measure of peace to the 9/11 families and everyone else who has suffered at the hands of al-Qaeda.”

    “It’s a tribute to President Biden’s leadership, to the members of the intelligence community who have been working for decades for this moment, and to the counterterrorism professionals who were able to take al-Zawahiri out without a single civilian casualty.”

    “More than 20 years after 9/11, one of the masterminds of that terrorist attack and Osama bin Laden’s successor as the leader of al-Qaeda – Ayman al-Zawahiri – has finally been brought to justice.”

And the bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. And the attack on the USS Cole. And the Egyptian embassy in Pakistan.

  22. August 2, 2022 at 1:56 pm

    Statement by President Joe Biden on All-Time Low Uninsured Rate

    AUGUST 02, 2022

    Every American has the right to the peace of mind that comes with access to affordable, quality health care. No one should worry about whether they can pay for their doctor or choose between paying rent and filing a prescription. Today, we are closer than ever to making that principle a reality. The lowest percentage of Americans are uninsured today – eight percent – in history.

    This progress did not happen by accident. More than 35 million Americans are enrolled in Affordable Care Act related coverage – the highest total on record. This includes over 21 million people who are enrolled in the ACA’s expansion of Medicaid, coverage that is denied to nearly four million Americans who live in states that have refused to expand Medicaid. And, since the beginning of my Administration, 5 million more people have gained health insurance coverage – in significant part because of the improvements to the ACA in the American Rescue Plan.

    When I ran for office, I said we needed to protect and build on the Affordable Care Act. The Inflation Reduction Act will do just that – it will lock in an average $800 a year savings in health insurance premiums for 13 million Americans and prevent 3 million Americans from becoming uninsured. I urge Congress to pass this legislation swiftly to lower health care costs and make health insurance coverage more accessible for families across the country.

    Kansas voters soundly rejected a proposed state constitutional amendment that would end protections for abortion, the first referendum on the issue since the Supreme Court eliminated abortion rights at the federal level.

    The Associated Press called the race with about 86% of the vote counted. The No vote led with 62% to 38% for Yes.

    Kelley was just one of the Republicans running this cycle with ties to the Capitol riot. He maintained that he didn’t enter the Capitol that day, but investigators placed him directing rioters into the building. Kelley admitted his participation in the preceding “Stop the Steal” rally and claimed his arrest helped boost his name recognition among GOP voters.

    “As federal and state investigators look into a report of children working in an Alabama auto supplier factory, activists say the story highlights a growing concern – that children are being used to fill workforce gaps since the coming of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    RNC links up with ‘Stop the Steal’ advocates to train poll workers
    Recordings of recruitment “summits” show party officials working with Cleta Mitchell and other leaders of Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

    “The Republican National Committee has been relying on a stable of the party’s most prolific spreaders of false stolen-election theories to pilot a sweeping “election integrity” operation to recruit and coach thousands of poll workers in eight battleground states, according to new recordings of organizing summits held this spring in Florida and Pennsylvania obtained by POLITICO.

    On the tapes, RNC National Election Integrity Director Josh Findlay repeatedly characterizes the committee’s role as supporting in-state coalitions — delivering staff, organization and “muscle” in key states to the person they identify as the quarterback of the effort to create a permanent workforce: ”
