Ed Pilkingtons no Guardian says the 6 January hearings will be difficult to duplicate the public impact of the Watergate hearing.
The nine-member committee, including Cheney, now has to do other and possibly more difficult work. They need to let the American people into their talks, share key facts and exhibits with them, look for witnesses in front of them, and begin to make a compelling account of how fiercely Trump tried to ruin the 2020 election and how close he is. succeeded.
“It’s important that we tell the American public as best we can about what happened,” said Zoya Lofgren, a California congressman who is one of seven members of the Democratic Party’s committee. “Society needs to understand the rates of our government system, and we need to work out possible changes in legislation or procedures to protect ourselves in the future.”
In an interview with the Guardian, Lofgren hesitated to go into the details of the investigation. However, when asked if she was surprised by the breadth and depth of the 2020 election rollover plan and the extent to which it was being organized, she replied: “The short answer is yes.”
Eleonora Klibanof writes for the Texas Tribune that major Republican donors have signed a letter that appears in today’s ad as a full-page ad. Dallas morning news. Advertising supports federal arms control legislation.
Major Republican donors, including some who have contributed to the Gov. Greg Abbot joined the campaign with other conservative Texas, signing an open letter in support of Congress’ action to increase arms restrictions in response to mass shootings in the Uvaldis, which killed 19 children and two teachers last week.
The letter, which will air as a full-page ad on Dallas Morning News on Sunday, confirms the enactment of red flag laws, an extension of past inspections and an increase in the age at which a gun can be purchased to 21 years. More than 250 self-proclaimed weapons enthusiasts signed it. […]
The letter was paid for by Todd McLean, a former senior executive at JP Morgan Chase who now runs Dallas-based Maclin Management. McLean said he was a conservative gun owner who had been fired upon by firing in the Uvald. […]
McLean said the group is focusing on federal law, which he believes is the best way to pass gun security laws and ensure that they are applied uniformly across the country. He declined to comment on the state’s reaction to the shooting or arms law, except that he hoped the state government would adopt any federal plan led by Cornin that was passed with conservative support.
Sheila Devana and Mike Baker from The New York Times write that it will be difficult for families and the municipality community to seek redress from the police for the mass shooting at Rob Elementary School.
However, any remedy could be difficult to achieve. A civil action should overcome the legal immunity that protects police officers in the performance of their duties. And although police officers are sometimes accused and convicted when their actions resulted in death, criminal charges against police officers who have failed to protect the public are extremely rare.
In general, said Seth Stoughton, a former officer who now follows police responsibility as a professor of law and criminal law at the University of South Carolina, the actions are legally easier to punish than inaction.
“I think it would be difficult, but it is possible,” he said, adding: “We can only punish someone for not doing something if it is required by law.” Professor Stoutton said the law does not usually require people to harm themselves, even if teaching requires them to do so.
Kimberley Atkins Stora no Boston Globe writes that the US Supreme Court is not really functioning at the moment.
May is usually one of the busiest months of the year. The arguments run until April, which means that by the end of the term, shortly before Independence Day, judges and their staff will be almost entirely focused on preparing, disseminating, finalizing and issuing opinions in cases that are still pending. The usual result is a steady stream of decisions, including those relating to the most serious cases of this period, from May to the end of June or the beginning of July.
However, the court has not issued an opinion since May 23, almost two weeks ago. It was handed over only five decisions essentially throughout the month of May. More than half of the term’s justified cases it remains to be decided, including those that could restrict the right to privacy, extend the Second Amendment and religious rights, and restrict environmental protection and access to voting. This means that in the coming weeks, judges will have to make decisions at a tremendous pace to meet the 1 July deadline.
There is no official explanation for the arrest of the Supreme Court, but no genius is needed to understand it. Unprecedented leak of the draft opinion which not only overthrew Roe against Way, but also the dance on his grave caused such outrage and protest that non-scalable barriers were built around the courthouse, and the security of judges was increased.
Ian Milihizers of Vox writes about the election case in Pennsylvania, which is now in the infamous Supreme Court “shadow document” and could potentially become the next court attack on voting rights.
David Ritter is a Republican candidate for the position of judge at Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas, Pennsylvania. Official results show that he beats Democrat Zaharia Cohen by 71 votes. Meanwhile, 257 ballot papers have still not been counted, which is enough to possibly change the race from Ritter to Cohen.
Ritter wants the Supreme Court to prevent these bulletins from being counted, thus blocking his victory. And although the election took place last November and the two other judges who won the election have already taken the oath, the outcome of the Ritter / Cohen race remains unclear as the fight for these countless ballots drags on.
National law stipulates that voters who vote by post must:date and signatureIn an envelope attached to their vote. It is significant, however, that the state does not care which date the voter writes on this envelope – only that the date is written on it. Envelopes dated 1776. 4 July 2063 ‘or’ 2063 April 5 “ will be opened and the vote included in it will be counted. However, Riters argues that voters who are unable to write any date should be deprived of the right to vote.
Victoria St. Martin of Inside Climate News writes that global warming will result in less sleep for future generations.
A study by a team of climatologists last week found that by the end of this century, global warming-related insomnia will be so prevalent that our offspring are likely to lose about two and a half days of sleep a year compared to normal levels. adults love today.
The results, published in a peer-reviewed study in One Earth magazine, used data from more than 10 billion sleep duration measurements from cuff tracking in 68 different countries, combined with local weather and climate data.[…]
“And I think the most important thing is that we found that these hidden human costs of heat are not evenly distributed among the population,” Minor said, noting that he and his colleagues found that the loss of sleep per degree of warming is about twice as high. among older people than. compared to younger or middle-aged adults. This rate was about three times higher in lower-income countries than in high-income countries.
Minor said night temperatures are rising faster than day temperatures for two reasons: anthropogenic or man-made climate change and urbanization.
Jeffrey Cain of Wire interviews Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on a wide range of topics, including the role of technology and social media in Ukraine’s war with Russia.
CAINS: Are social media companies doing enough right now to enforce sanctions and maintain a flow of verifiable information? What else can they do?
ZELENSKIS: Some platforms and social networks have already left Russia, which I think is very important because I don’t want them to be influenced by the country’s domestic policy. The thing is, those companies are the ones who have full control now. There is information – call it whatever you want – a wall or an informative submarine where the inhabitants of the Russian Federation are located. Because of this veil created by the political elite of the Russian Federation, they are in their own information space, which is fed by the Kremlin, which gives them only information that is in their favor. There is no freedom in their space.
Some great, cool platforms, despite the fact that they are blocked in Russia– we must find a technological, ideological or some other creative way to show them the truth of our reality so that the Russians understand that they live in another world. The main thing is that people on social media platforms live in freedom, and Russians are outside it, as if on another planet.
Aaron Blake of The Washington post writes about President Joe Biden’s upcoming trip to Saudi Arabia, which will include a meeting with Prince Bonesava.
Administration officials confirmed on Thursday that Biden plans to travel to Saudi Arabia later this month. Adding a stopover to Baiden’s journey is an obvious attempt to seek help from an oil-rich country, among other things, to lower the record price. gas prices which have hampered the American economy and ruined Biden’s political destiny.
But it is also less than three years after Biden pledged to turn the kingdom into a “pariah” for the horrific murder of Washington Post observer Jamal Hashogi. Biden is expected to meet with the country’s de facto leader, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, despite US intelligence saying that Muhammad has ordered the killing of Hashogi.
Needless to say, this treatment is not usually intended for paria.
Finally today Arthur Brooks writes about Atlantic ocean that in general some of us are probably less of a “hot mess” than we think.
Young people today it is a habit to describe oneself as a “hot mess”. Despite the millennium sound modifier – not only chaos, but also a hot one – the term is not new; its examples can be found in the 19th century. As one editor since 1899 wrote, “If the newspaper says the sky is painted with green chalk, that’s what happens. Indeed, I tell you, the audience is a hot mess.
When people use this term, they usually do not mean that they are fleeing the crowd, entangled in a deadly love triangle, or waking up after a member has a kidney shortage. Instead, they mean they feel sultry, emotionally disordered – they’re not confident, they’re insecure, they’re neurotic. And anyone can see them as a disaster.
Is that what they think. In fact, you often think you are a lot messier than others think. By understanding this and acting accordingly, you can relax and enjoy a hot, messy life much more.
