Biden to let communities repurpose COVID relief money toward victim disarmament measures

Source: ABC News

“President Joe Biden plans to announce on Wednesday a range of actions targeting rising gun [ownership], according to the White House, as homicide rates jump heading into the summer months — and Republicans blame him for it. The president will lay out a ‘comprehensive strategy’ that will target law-breaking [sic] gun dealers, provide federal resources to police departments for gun-crime [sic] enforcement and allow communities to repurpose millions of dollars of federal coronavirus relief funding for programs proven to [harass gun owners while not noticeably affecting crime], according to the White House.” (06/23/21)

“Now, if you told my ten-year-old self that I’d have Caitlin Jenner on my talk show. I’d be like, I have a talk show? And who is Caitlin Jenner? And then, I would tell my ten-year-old self who Caitlin Jenner is, and I’d be like holy s***! What the hell is going on with this world? Then I would ask if Mr. T is still Mr. T? But then I would calm down, and be totally psyched. So when you have a sports legend on your show, who is also trans, you’re gunna have to tackle the elephant in the room. … Yes, the Olympics welcomes its first trans athlete. And thankfully we have a few athletes on this panel tonight talk about this.” [editor’s note: Read the whole thing waiting for him to cover “the truth about biology.” He never got there – TLK] (06/22/21)

LA: Legislators consider holding veto override session

Source: US News & World Report

“Gov. John Bel Edwards’ rejection of legislation banning transgender athletes from participating on school sports teams is spurring talk that Republican lawmakers may try to hold Louisiana’s first veto session under the decades-old constitution. Republican House Speaker Clay Schexnayder announced Tuesday night that he wants such a mid-July session, giving the possibility of the historic gathering some momentum. But GOP Senate President Page Cortez hasn’t taken a public position, which could put the chances in doubt. It only takes a majority written vote of lawmakers in either the House or Senate to scrap a veto session in Louisiana. Plus, it’s unclear if lawmakers could hold the bipartisan coalition of votes together that would be needed to overturn the Democratic governor’s spurning of the transgender sports ban bill if the veto session were held.” (06/23/21)

Biden Looks for a New, New START

“When U.S. and Russian negotiators first shook hands on a comprehensive arms control deal in 2010 that put stiff limits on the nuclear stockpiles of the world’s two biggest atomic powers, the White House saw signs of a thaw in the post-Cold War relationship. … But more than a decade later, even though the Biden administration and Russian President Vladimir Putin’s top deputies in the Kremlin are optimistic about a follow-up nuclear deal, there’s little hope for any breaking of bread or clinking of glasses. As the U.S. State Department plots its negotiating strategy with the Russians ahead of an expected follow-up arms control talk … the talks are increasingly seen as less of a new start and merely a new starting point for a diminished relationship where the two sides can agree on avoiding nuclear war — but perhaps little else.” (06/22/21)

Mauritania: Former president jailed, faces graft charges

Source: Al Jazeera [Qatar state media]

“Mauritania’s former President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz has been jailed after a judge in charge of a corruption probe ordered his incarceration. The ex-leader says he is being persecuted in a bid to keep him out of politics but has vowed he would not go into exile. A prosecutor speaking on condition of anonymity and the spokesman of the former president’s party, Djibril Ould Bilal, confirmed his detention on Tuesday without citing the reason. Aziz has twice gone before a magistrate investigating the case since the charges, including money laundering, were brought in March. The move comes days after the former leader refused to continue reporting to police after being put under house arrest.” (06/23/21)

Canceling Critical Race Theory

“In Florida, the state board of education has voted to approve a rule that prohibits schools from teaching CRT and the 1619 Project. Iowa governor Kim Reynolds recently signed a law that will ban schools from making students ‘feel discomfort, guilt, anguish or any other form of psychological distress’ because of their race or sex, among other provisions. In D.C., a bill has been introduced that would ban the promotion of ‘race or sex stereotyping or scapegoating.’ … And now, ironically, the wokesters — the same crowd that brought us ‘cancel culture’ — is [sic] screaming ‘Censorship!'” (06/22/21)
