    Bring the War Home
    The White Power Movement and Paramilitary America
    By Kathleen Belew

    “The white power movement in America wants a revolution. Its soldiers are not lone wolves but highly organized cadres motivated by a coherent and deeply troubling worldview made up of white supremacy, virulent anticommunism, and apocalyptic faith. In Bring the War Home, Kathleen Belew gives us the history of a movement that consolidated in the 1970s and 1980s around a potent sense of betrayal in the Vietnam War and made tragic headlines in Waco and Ruby Ridge and with the Oklahoma City bombing and is resurgent under President Trump.”

    No prescription needed: over-the-counter hearing aids on sale in US
    Hearing aids now available from stores including Walgreens and Walmart without prescription after new FDA rule takes effect

    “Americans no longer have to see a doctor, get a prescription, or be fitted for a hearing aid, which makes it less time intensive and costly to get them, Axios reported. The executive director of the Hearing Loss Association of America (Hlaa), Barbara Kelley, told NPR it previously could take five to seven years for someone to get a hearing aid after they find out they have hearing loss.

    The White House has said the move will save families nearly $3,000. Nearly 30 million Americans could benefit from hearing aids, according to the National Institutes of Health.

    Maryland’s Wes Moore could be the only Black governor in the country next year. A lot of hopes — and scrutiny — will come along with it.

    “Moore is poised to become just the third elected Black governor in U.S. history if he holds onto a wide polling lead in Maryland. He may well be the nation’s only Black chief executive in the country next year.”

    Remarks by President Biden on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

    “But there’s some real bright spots: 10 million — 10 million new jobs have been created just since my presidency began; 3.5 percent unemployment, the lowest in 50 years; nearly 700,000 manufacturing jobs created since we took office, and you all are going to create a lot more, up there on the screen.”

    FACT SHEET: President Biden to Announce New Actions to Strengthen U.S. Energy Security, Encourage Production, and Bring Down Costs

    President Biden is committed to doing everything in his power to respond to Putin’s Price Hike at the pump, and he is delivering. Gas prices fell at the fastest rate in over a decade this summer, with average prices down by about $1.15 per gallon since their peak in June – and just about 30 cents above levels on February 24, when the war in Ukraine began. In fact, gas prices have fallen 15 out of the last 18 weeks. According to an industry analyst, the most common price across the country today is $3.39.

    President Biden is directing his Administration to take additional action to strengthen energy security, address the supply crunch, and lower costs.

    “CDC officials describe intense pressure, job threats from Trump White House
    Trump appointees oversaw a concerted effort to restrict immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border during the pandemic, change scientific reports and muzzle top officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, according to emails, text messages and interviews gathered by a congressional panel probing the pandemic response.

    As Dan Diamond reports, former CDC director Robert Redfield, former top deputy Anne Schuchat and others described how the Trump White House and its allies repeatedly “bullied” staff, tried to rewrite their publications and threatened their jobs in an attempt to align the CDC with the more optimistic view of the pandemic espoused by Donald Trump, the House select subcommittee on the coronavirus crisis concluded in a report released Monday.” (wapo)

    Julie Gunningle, Democratic Nominee For Maricopa County Attorney In Arizona Exemplifies Why Down-Ballot Votes Matter

    AZ Secretary of State’s office is now asking DOJ to investigate potential voter intimidation, after a group of people “approached and followed” a voter in Maricopa County who was just dropping off a ballot at a Drop Box. Doesn’t seem like an isolated incident. If elected, Julie Gunningle will be responsible for overseeing the Maricopa County Election Board tasked with certifying future elections. Also discussed with Joy Reid, the state’s contested 1864 abortion ban.

    FOX has made untold cash by slandering people and destroying their lives.
    Continuous lied about vaccines, the Covid pandemic, and the 2020 election.
    Their viewers believed them and attacked the Capitol of the United States. Time to take this Lie Factory down, same way others are going down via bazooka cash fines.
    –Look at RT television Russia and their Big Lie about Putin’s war.
    Is it OK if it happens here via Fox et al?

    Q: What happened with the slander case and Dominion Voting Machines?
