Read the Full Transcript

  • Judy Woodruff:

Recent mass shootings in Georgia and Colorado have once again put gun reform in the national spotlight.

Nearly 20,000 people died of gun violence last year, and another 24,000 from suicide.

Today, President Biden unveiled steps he is taking to curb what he calls an epidemic and an international embarrassment.

  • Pres. Joe Biden:

The idea that we have so many people dying every single day from gun violence in America is a blemish on our character as nation.

Whether Congress acts or not, I’m going to use all the resources at my disposal as president to keep the American people safe from gun violence. But there’s much more that Congress can do to help that effort.

  • Judy Woodruff:

Some of the actions the president announced today include curbing so-called ghost guns, which are home-assembled firearms that often lack serial numbers and don’t require background checks, tightening regulations on stabilizing braces, which can turn an AR-style semi automatic pistol into a rifle.

The Justice Department will create a model for states to enact what are called red flag laws, which allows judges to seize firearms from people deemed dangerous. And the department will also release a report on firearms trafficking.

In addition, President Biden nominated David Chipman, an adviser at the gun control group Giffords, to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

We turn to Adam Winkler of the UCLA School of Law, an expert on gun policy.

Adam Winkler, thank you so much for being here.

As we were saying, gun deaths off the charts, mass shootings happening every day. There was one in South Carolina yesterday, another one today in the state of Texas. How much difference can these steps President Biden is announcing make?

  • Adam Winkler:

Well, these steps are modest steps. They certainly don’t tackle all of the major issues in America’s gun violence problem.

However, they’re not insignificant steps. Take, for instance, the rule regulating ghost guns. These are do-it-yourself, homemade gun kit that have become increasingly popular and, with the advance of technology, increasingly easy to use. Anyone can buy one of these kits, even if they are prohibited from buying a firearm, and make their own gun.

And we know that these guns are being used more frequently in crime. In California, for instance, one in three guns recovered from crime scenes are do-it-yourself guns without serial numbers.

  • Judy Woodruff:

And we also mentioned making it easier for states to enact these so-called red flag laws.

And you were telling us investing in communities, trying to discourage gun violence can make a difference, too.

  • Adam Winkler:

Well, that’s right. These red flag laws have become popular. And there’s even some bipartisan support for red flag laws.

They enable family members or law enforcement to temporarily take away someone’s firearms when they’re going through some kind of crisis that poses a threat to themselves or to others.

And what the Biden administration is proposing to do is come up with some models, some guidelines, best practices, if you will, for how to do this right. And so that could be an effective tool that some family members who see another family member in crisis can use to prevent the next mass shooting.

  • Judy Woodruff:

And, Adam Winkler, we know that this all reminds us that President Biden is not pushing legislation through Congress right now. It’s a reminder of how difficult that is.

How much influence does the gun rights lobby have, organizations like the NRA, right now with American lawmakers, vs. the influence of groups that want to see gun reform?

  • Adam Winkler:

Well, ironically, we’re seeing both sides very strong in America.

No doubt, the NRA is suffering from a major financial setback. They’re in bankruptcy. They’re being investigated and prosecuted by the New York attorney general. They have got major lawsuits on their hands. But the power of the NRA has always been about the power to influence the single-issue pro-gun voters there are out there, and they’re still out there, regardless of what happens to the NRA.

At the same time, the gun control movement in the last 10 years has been really reinvigorated. We see new organizations that have arisen, a lot more money being spent on gun safety reform, and it’s become an issue that’s really at the top of the Democratic Party agenda, some place it was not 10 years ago.

  • Judy Woodruff:

But still uphill to try to get meaningful legislation passed?

  • Adam Winkler:

Well, right now, it’s not just a gun issue.

(CROSSTALK)

  • Adam Winkler:

Meaningful legislation in the Senate requires 60 votes, and it’s hard to imagine 60 votes for almost any controversial issue these days.

Certainly going to be difficult to get 60 votes on significant gun reform.

  • Judy Woodruff:

And what about the views of the American people? What do we know about that?

  • Adam Winkler:

Well, there’s a huge difference between the views of the members of Congress and the views of the American people.

We see things like universal background checks having over 80 percent support. The restriction on ghost guns, we see polls show about 75 percent support. And yet these laws can’t get adopted through Congress itself, because, let’s face it, the Republican Caucus is 100 percent opposed to gun control, and there’s probably even some swing state Democrats who would vote against significant gun reform, too.

  • Judy Woodruff:

We heard President Biden say today, if he had one thing he could get done, it would be the ability to sue gun manufacturers over gun deaths.

Would that make a big difference?

  • Adam Winkler:

It could make a difference in the long run.

The gun makers were able to get a law passed by Congress back in the second Bush administration to restrict the ability of people to sue gun makers when their guns are used in crime. As a general matter, a gun maker is not going to be liable if a criminal misuses their firearms.

But we have seen in other industries that these kinds of lawsuits can open the door and open the window to see how these gun makers are operating, how they’re marketing their weapons. And it may be that they’re marketing them in ways designed to appeal to people who have violent desire to use guns offensively.

It would be a tough road, but it’s certainly possible.

  • Judy Woodruff:

Adam Winkler with the UCLA School of Law, thank you so much.

  • Adam Winkler:

Thank you.

U.S. Capitol Police Officer William ‘Billy’ Evans killed in the line of duty

Officer William “Billy” Evans, who had served 18 years in the department. Evans was killed when a man rammed a car into two officers at a barricade outside the U.S. Capitol on April 2. (U.S. Capitol Police/AP)

April 2, 2021 at 10:09 p.m. EDT

On Friday afternoon, hours after U.S. Capitol police officer William “Billy” Evans, was killed in the line of duty, two of his fellow officers pulled into the quiet suburban Virginia neighborhood where he was often seen with his children.

They began unloading several plastic bags of supplies — including snacks and a rack of blue Gatorade — from the back of their black SUV and carrying the haul into Evans’s house, stepping across a tidy, grassy garden with two turquoise lawn chairs, angled slightly toward each other. Neighbors stepped from an adjacent home conferred in soft voices with the officers, asking what else was needed and how they could help.

Evans was among two officers injured when a vehicle rammed into them outside the U.S. Capitol, according to acting U.S. Capitol Police chief Yogananda Pittman.

His death comes less than three months after the agency’s officers fought to protect lawmakers by clashing with a riotous mob that descended on the Capitol building in January, leaving one officer dead and scores of others injured.

On Friday, Pittman was forced to address yet another deadly attack at the Capitol complex — this one resulting in the death of Evans, who joined the force in 2003 and was a member of the first-responder unit.

The assailant, identified by several people familiar with the investigation as Noah Green, was shot and killed by police.

“It is with profound sadness that I share the news of the passing of Officer William ‘Billy’ Evans this afternoon from injuries he sustained following an attack at the North Barricade by a lone assailant,” Pittman said in a statement.

Evans was the sixth member of the Capitol Police force to die in the line of duty, according to the department. The casualties include Officer Brian D. Sicknick, who died Jan. 7, one day after the attack on the U.S. Capitol.

3. Supporters of Donald Trump who thought they were sending a single donation were charged over and over by his campaign operation.

A Times investigation found that the charges were part of an intentional scheme to boost revenue to Mr. Trump’s struggling presidential campaign. Recurring online donations were set up by default, and a fine-print disclaimer and opt-out language became increasingly hard to find.

Demands for refunds spiked, and complaints to banks and credit card companies soared. The magnitude of the money involved is staggering for politics: All told, the Trump campaign and the Republican Party raised $1.2 billion with WinRed, a for-profit donation processing service, and refunded roughly 10 percent of it.

In effect, the overcharges were an interest-free loan — eventually paid off with some of the tens of millions of dollars Mr. Trump raised after the election under the guise of pursuing his unfounded claims of election fraud.

Axios PM: Vaccine nationalism

    By Mike Allen ·Mar 12, 2021

Good afternoon: Today’s PM — edited by Justin Green — is 370 words, a 1.5-minute read.

?? Situational awareness: The U.S. has now administered over 101 million doses of the coronavirus vaccine — with almost 20% of the population having received one dose and over 10% of the population being fully vaccinated, Axios’ Ursula Perano reports.

1 big thing: Vaccine nationalism

Illustration: Eniola Odetunde/Axios
America first: That’s the message being sent by the White House when it comes to vaccines, writes Axios Capital correspondent Felix Salmon.

The big picture: Billions of people are waiting for access to a COVID-19 vaccine, but 30 million doses are sitting in Ohio, gathering dust.

· Press secretary Jen Psaki said yesterday that President Biden wants an extra 100 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine just in case.

·The president “wants to be overprepared and oversupplied.”

Between the lines: For the most part, it’s every country for itself, with poorer countries, including Brazil, generally much further back in the queue.

·  “We see many examples of vaccine nationalism and vaccine hoarding in wealthier countries,” said UN Secretary-General António Guterres in a statement yesterday.

·  “The global vaccination campaign represents the greatest moral test of our times.”

The bottom line: COVID-19 is a global pandemic that respects no national borders. But when it comes to access to the vaccine, the country you live in makes all the difference.

3. Catch up quick

 Data: Our World in Data; Chart: Axios Visuals

1.     Europe is seeing a new wave of COVID infections, which experts warn should be a “very serious warning” for North America. Go deeper.

2.    The Minneapolis City Council approved a $27 million settlement with the family of George Floyd.

3.    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo again refused to resign, as pressure mounts from state and congressional Democrats in the wake of a sixth sexual harassment allegation.

4.     Fauci’s “most difficult decision” in March 2020

Anthony Fauci said he faced a “most difficult decision” when it was determined that the spike in cases in New York in early March 2020 was coming from Europe, not China.

Why it matters: Fauci told Dan Primack on Axios Re:Cap about prodding the Trump administration to ban travel from Europe.

·  “To the president’s credit, he said, ‘Well, if we got to do it, if the docs think we need to do it, we’re just going to have to do it.'”

7. Biden uses “Quad” to counter China

President Biden and his counterparts from India, Japan and Australia — collectively known as “the Quad” — will announce a plan today to increase vaccine supplies to countries in Asia, Axios’ Bethany Allen-Ebrahimian and Dave Lawler report.

·  Why it matters: Biden’s engagement shows a growing commitment to a group the U.S. sees as key to countering Chinese influence in the Indo-Pacific. Beijing has pledged to provide vaccines to countries around the world, putting the Biden administration on the back foot.

The Morning: Hope as a public-health tool

The New York Times   March 12, 2021
By David Leonhardt

 

Good morning.  President Biden speaking from White House, reached for a little optimism.

A child attending online classes at a Y.M.C.A. in Los Angeles last month.Patrick T. Fallon/Agence France-Presse — Getty Images

News from the speech:
  • Biden directed states to make all adult Americans eligible to receive a Covid vaccine by May 1.
  • He announced several new actions to speed up vaccinations, including the use of dentists, veterinarians, medical students and others to give the shots.
  • He condemned hate crimes against Asian-Americans, who he said have been “attacked, harassed, blamed and scapegoated” during the pandemic. “It’s wrong, it’s un-American, and it must stop.”
Go deeper: On his Times Opinion podcast, Ezra Klein talks with Dr. Ashish Jha of Brown University about the tensions between pandemic optimism and pessimism. Ezra suggests that some politicians, especially in liberal parts of the country, are undermining their own pandemic response by being so negative: “They’re not giving people a way out of this they can hold on to.”
Follow-up: A Covid mystery
In response to Monday’s newsletter about the mystery of the relatively low Covid death tolls in Africa and Asia, several researchers wrote to me to add a potential explanation that had not been on my list: obesity.
Countries with higher obesity rates have suffered more Covid deaths on average, as you can see in this chart that my colleague Lalena Fisher and I put together:

By The New York Times | Sources: Health agencies and hospitals, C.I.A. World Factbook
Obesity can cause multiple health problems, including making it harder to breathe, as Dr. David L. Katz told me, and oxygen deprivation has been a common Covid symptom. A paper by Dr. Jennifer Lighter of New York University and other researchers found that obesity increased the risk of hospitalization among Covid patients.
It’s a particularly intriguing possibility because it could help explain why Africa and Asia have suffered fewer deaths than not only high-income countries but also Latin American countries. Latin Americans, like Europeans and U.S. residents, are heavier on average than Africans or Asians.

COMING OF AGE

Teens on a Year That Changed Everything

In words, images and video, teens across the United States show us how they have met life’s challenges in the midst of a pandemic.

March 7, 2021

What has it been like to be a teenager during the first year of a historic pandemic?  The New York Times, through its Learning Network, asked the question, and more than 5,500 responses poured in.

In words and images, audio and video, they reported that it was, in many ways, a generation-defining disaster. Being trapped inside — and missing the milestones that ordinarily mark coming of age in America — was lonely, disorienting, depressing and even suffocating.

But many also surprised themselves. They bonded with siblings, discovered nature, found small comforts in Zoom-school, played games, worked out, cooked, wrote, sang, danced, painted and made videos. And, perhaps most important at a time of life focused on figuring out who you are, they reinvented themselves.

But although so many coped admirably, this generation will be forever changed. As one 16-year-old put it, “Making history is way overrated.”

This week, a year after the World Health Organization declared Covid-19 a pandemic, we share their stories. In this special project, we chose a handful of entries to show what teenagers have lost — and what they have found. Below each image, you can find edited and condensed excerpts from their artists’ statements that can tell you more about the work.

No matter how old you are, as you read you might ask yourself a question, too: How has this year challenged and changed your generation?

— Katherine Schulten, editor, The Learning Network

1. A Generation Trapped in Its Bedroom

“For some, it was a time of reflection. For many, it was a dark period of isolation. For a generation, it was a defining collective experience.” — Parrish André, 18

WHIPPANY, N.J.

Sunnina Chen, 16

If you’re reading this, take five deep breaths.

Wasn’t that nice?

“Just breathe” became a mantra I told myself to get through the simple things. Taking the time to reflect, I realized why the Saran Wrap was suffocating me — I was the one who pulled it tight. Yes, it was placed there by my responsibilities and the uncertainty of our world, but I had the ability to let go. I let go of everything that wasn’t serving me, and took a deep breath.

CHICAGO

Stevia Ndoe, 18

Ever since I was a child, I looked forward to my 18th birthday. I thought I would suddenly gain years of knowledge and have the power to change the world. Little did I know how difficult the year of my retirement from childhood would be.

When murmurs of quarantining were becoming a reality, my family and I were stuck. My mom, an essential worker and single parent, worked all day while my younger siblings and I attended school. On top of trying to graduate from high school, I had to be a mother for a preschooler and a grade-schooler. My 18th birthday came and went, and I was still the same Stevia.

I look at the last few months and realize this is what growing up in a global crisis looks like for low-income families. Being in quarantine made me realize how much I have been robbed of my childhood and that I’ve been an “adult” for the majority of my life. My photo represents waking up daily with the stress of not knowing what life is going to throw at you, but going through the motions anyway. I took this photo one morning as my siblings were still sleeping four feet away from me. The light was coming through the window so beautifully, and it was one of the few moments of silence I had experienced since March.

BALTIMORE

Parrish André, 18

I drew this series in mid-April while sitting silently on many Zoom calls. In quarantine, my interactions with other people were all fit neatly into little rectangles on my screen.

Being young is about stretching and growing. We pull away from our parents, our homes, our schools, but as Covid-19 struck our communities we were reined in to all the situations that youth is about diverging from. For some, it was a time of reflection. For many, it was a dark period of isolation. For a generation, it was a defining collective experience.

I wake up, go to school and sit at my desk. I do some work, the bell rings, I go to the next class. I do some work, the bell rings, I go to the next class. I get home, sit down, do my homework and catch up on a show. I go to sleep and I repeat.

Although my algebra class can range from having five to 30 students in a class, it feels as though there is only you. And for students learning from home, the situation is worse. They are literally by themselves.

Common high school things, such as spending time with your friends and going to football games and dances, are near impossible to do this year. Being in high school in 2020 is an experience like no other. It is gloomy, lonely and frustrating.

DALLAS

Ryan Daniel, 18

This piece, a picture I sketched of my little sister inside a box I created, depicts the entrapment and isolation felt by so many people during quarantine. This is the new normal for my generation. But we have grown together and are now capable of deeply connecting through shared experience.

MEMPHIS

Jayda Murray, 17

From a young age, I looked at the world from the lens of a dreamer. Flame-colored sunlight would dance through windows, and water would trickle below trees. I created scenes in my head until I found that a pen and paintbrush could do the same. I wanted to have those pictures and worlds to have substance in reality. That same inspiration drives my creative process as a teenager.

Before Covid-19 hit our American shores, I felt an increasing sense of dread. Two weeks later, my county issued a lockdown, and all my friends either found themselves at home or were recklessly disobeying the order. I had so many feelings. Fear, anxiety, sadness, loneliness. It was like they just took turns and looped from one to the next.

Aishah Musa, 16

These are messages of a conversation I had with my sister on March 24, 2020. It was the first time I went with my parents to our grocery store, and I forgot to wear the mask before wearing the hijab, so I texted my sister to ask her how and she explained it. Remembering to wear the mask first is something that I still struggle with to this day.

okay
What’s it like, being a teenager in quarantine?
it’s the same i guess.
except time passes more slowly.
and you’re not allowed to go outside.
it’s feeling exhausted from all the schoolwork.
and touch-starved because your friends aren’t there.
suddenly, the two-bedroom apartment you share with five family members,
finally begins to feel cramped.
it’s feeling terrified, because you share a room
with your covid-positive aunt, who refuses to see a doctor.
and you can hear your dad, coughing through the walls.
and your mom at 2 a.m., reciting qur’an and
rushing to make tea for the both of them.
she gets sick too.
and suddenly you’re failing classes because you can’t keep up with
helping your siblings, and classwork, and housework, and the sick adults at home.
things start to look up though.
the weather gets warmer.
and your family gets better.
being a teenager in quarantine
is radical acceptance.
things happened and things are happening
you’ll be okay.

2. A Summer of Awakening

“The Black Lives Matter movement has encouraged me and an entire generation of young people to speak up.” — Christian Lee, 17

This photo encompasses my own identity as an L.G.B.T.Q.+ Filipina-American woman. It highlights my role as an ally to the movements of social justice. No longer do I talk about boys or paint my nails, but start to recognize the part I can play in fighting for justice and how to tackle my implicit biases.

Although this was not the summer I was expecting, it truly has brought on tremendous personal growth, which I would not trade for anything.

LA HABRA, CALIF.

Christian Lee, 17

The Black Lives Matter movement has encouraged me and an entire generation of young people to speak up.

I photographed one of my best friends wearing the American flag because I thought it would be a simple but profound act of protest against racially motivated violence.

CARLSBAD, CALIF.

Madeline Mack, 16

When the news surfaced of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, I was distraught and in need of support. My moms are always here for me, but there is something special and necessary about connecting with your peers. I needed a way forward and assumed others felt similarly, so I decided to create Mad’s Book Club. The club has gone beyond what I imagined. When uncertainty strikes, we need connection and community more than ever. Being a teenager is about finding the connection that powers you onward.

2020 didn’t ignite the waves of Asian racism. It was already there.

I’ve seen the Asian community strive to be “more American.” I saw my family disassociate themselves from the community. I purposefully never learned Cantonese in hopes of making myself “more American.” I thought was in my best interest. I erased my own culture willingly in hopes of fitting in — it’s always purposeful whitewashing, the strive to Americanize in hopes to be accepted.

But you’ll still see the person I tried to erase. I cannot wash my culture away; it will always stay. The racism will always stay. At least paint is washable.

HERMOSA BEACH, CALIF.

Maddox Chen, 15

This photograph was taken on Sunday, Nov. 8, on my iPhone propped up on my cramped white desk against the wall of my room/sanctuary in my house. Using my preferred medium of Lego bricks, I created a physical mock-up of my typical spot for the past eight months: glued to a screen, whether that is my phone, laptop or the TV.

Politics has dominated everything this year, from racial, social and economic inequities to the simple act of wearing a mask. One cannot refer to this time without mentioning the diametrical struggle between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.

BROOKLYN, N.Y.

Joyce Weng, 14

Teenagers took this year to think about what’s happening in the world. We have to stand up for ourselves and make a change, and we all came together to create the Black Lives Matter movement.

Some teenagers who didn’t go out there and protest helped from home. We signed petitions, gave donations and educated ourselves on topics we should have known about a long time ago.

SAN ANTONIO

Evelyn Cox, 17

I’ve welcomed the alone time.

The number of things that I have learned or relearned about myself has made this a time of discovery. A time where I get to put my needs first. Where I can feel comfortable in my own skin for the entirety of a day, every day, a week, for months on end.

The state of being home and surrounded by the people and things I love most hasn’t stopped the stress of school and college applications, or the feeling of helplessness when it comes to politics, or the full gravity of this deadly virus that flung us into this position. Being home has allowed me the time to recover and pick myself back up without the pressure of fitting in with my peers. It allowed me the space I need to grow.

WEST WINDSOR, N.J.

Marybel Elfar, 16

Who knows what my family dynamic will be in the next few years, but I know that I’ll miss what I have right now.

My sister is a senior, and I have no idea how I will survive when she goes to college next year. During quarantine, we would drive around our neighborhood blasting Kesha and screaming the lyrics horribly off key. My dad is taking a new position in his job, and my mom is returning to teaching. Neither of these things were able to happen before we were put on lockdown.

This picture was taken on a rainy day, when I felt inspired to take serious portraits of my family members, to match the mood outside and in the world. Despite my best efforts, nobody took me seriously, and I ended up with a series featuring my mom and dad goofing around and tickling each other.

The Virginia High School League delayed all sports until they are safe. But in preparation for the start of a potential season, basketball players have been permitted to engage in physical training.

All workouts must take place outside. There is a strict set of guidelines that must be followed including online sign-ins, mandatory temperature checks, being masked at all times, sanitizing each player’s personal ball and maintaining at least six feet of distance.

Despite the restrictions, the majority of athletes from the Robinson Basketball team have participated. They have shown up faithfully for a season that may still be canceled.

This song is inspired by the brutal couple of months that followed the first spike of Covid-19 in the United States. We felt ourselves become anxious, and depressed, and we wrote this song to try and spread some positivity to teenagers all over the world. We recorded different parts at our houses. We videoed some of the instruments live and some not. All of the videoed vocals are lip-synced in order to increase the workflow, creativity and fun. Aside from recording stuff, I created a fake Zoom, called Boom, to be the canvas, if you will, of the video.

Teenagers wanted to have the best summer ever, and it was canceled in March.

A few days before this picture was taken, my friend texted me wanting to hang out but also be six feet apart.

My friends and I all decided on a day to drive to a parking lot. We just sat in a circle and talked for about four hours. It was one of the best nights of my quarantine.

All summer, my Instagram feed was filled with people throwing their own proms and finding fun ways to make this summer the best despite the pandemic. Finding a way to be happy in hard times is essential to making it through.

NEW YORK

How can anyone make a statement on beauty standards that has not been said a thousand times before? We all know that it should not matter what everyone else thinks. We all know that we should love ourselves. We also know that no matter how true these statements are, we don’t listen to them. This is especially true for teenagers who spend every night scrolling through our social media feeds until we fall asleep.

When New York gave the orders to stay at home, I was in the midst of multiple eating disorders that had started the previous year. The idea of quarantine terrified me. I would have to try even harder to hide my worsening health from my family. I didn’t want to get better.

As the days in quarantine blurred into weeks, all I was left with were my thoughts. I finally realized: “This is not what I want. I do not want this to become me.” I began to confront my feelings, put effort into counseling and find ways to express myself. The artwork that I created helped me to fully recover.

Each collage highlights a particular part of my body that made me feel insecure. I previously looked at myself as though in a clown mirror. My artwork transformed my self-doubt into beauty.

DALLAS

Hannah Blue, 17

I was angry at the world and I wanted to channel my feelings into something meaningful. I chose to design my own mini deck of tarot cards. The Hermit is the only one that is actually a real tarot card; I made the other three up. I am slightly grateful to the pandemic. I was forced to be alone with myself, with my thoughts and feelings, which led me to create art and poetry with deeper meaning than I had ever been able to create before.

REDMOND, WASH.

Chloe Kim, 14

When we first went into lockdown, it felt like an extension of spring break. We laughed about the toilet paper shortage of 2020. We believed Covid-19 would disappear soon.

I remember the first couple of weeks thinking this was my chance to become stronger during quarantine and get a glow-up. I did YouTube workouts and workouts our coaches posted; I did much self-care and focused on myself. But as time went on, online school started and the climbing season got canceled. I lost motivation and started falling into an unhealthy hole. My sleep schedule was nonexistent, and I rarely got off my bed, even for classes. I completely lost any desire to continue working out or do any self-care. I also stopped contacting my friends, which left me feeling so alone and weak. I felt like I was in this by myself, and no one could help me.

This signifies me finding my rhythm and becoming happier and finding a way to climb out of the hole and overcome my downward spiral.

(CNN)A US Capitol police officer is the latest to be confirmed dead after a mob of President Trump’s supporters stormed the US Capitol on Wednesday.

Four other people died during the stunning attack at the heart of American democracy as mob members vandalized the building and assaulted police officers. One woman was fatally shot by police and three people died of apparent medical emergencies.

Several DC Metropolitan Police officers were also injured during the insurrection, police Chief Robert Contee said. One officer had significant facial injuries from being struck by a projectile, and another officer was hospitalized after being pepper-sprayed.

Here’s what we know about the people who died:

Officer dies after being injured

Capitol Police released a statement saying Officer Brian D. Sicknick passed away Thursday night “due to injuries sustained while on-duty.”

Officer Sicknick was injured while physically engaging with the rioters and collapsed after returning to his division office. “He was taken to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries,” the Capitol Police statement said.

Officer Sicknick joined the USCP in July 2008, and most recently served in the Department’s First Responder’s Unit.

“The entire USCP Department expresses its deepest sympathies to Officer Sicknick’s family and friends on their loss, and mourns the loss of a friend and colleague,” Capitol Police added.

His death is now being investigated.

United States Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick

Sicknick was originally from South River, New Jersey, and the youngest of three sons, according to a statement issued by his brother on behalf of his family.

Sicknick “wanted to be a police officer his entire life,” his brother Ken said, and joined the New Jersey National Guard in his pursuit of that goal.

According to a statement from New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy’s office, Sicknick was a staff sergeant for the New Jersey National Guard. He served as a fire team member and a leader of the 108th Security Force Squadron, 108th Wing, at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, Murphy’s statement said.

Sicknick’s service included two deployments — one as part of Operation Southern Watch and another as part of Operation Enduring Freedom, Murphy said.

Sicknick’s family was “very proud” of his service to his country, Ken Sicknick said.

“Brian is a hero, and that is what we would like people to remember,” he said.

Air Force veteran fatally shot by police

A woman was fatally shot by a US Capitol Police employee as the mob tried to force its way toward the House Chamber where members of Congress were sheltering, US Capitol Police said in a statement.

The woman was given medical assistance immediately and taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Authorities identified her as Ashli Babbitt, a 35-year-old from Huntington, Maryland.

Babbit’s mother, Michelle Witthoeft told CNN on Thursday she was devastated to learn of her daughter’s death.

“I loved and admired her greatly,” Witthoeft said of Babbitt. “She served this country boldly and proudly.”

Babbitt was an ardent Trump supporter who held strong political views, her mother said, and was “passionate enough to die for what she believed in.”

Babbitt, who was previously married but separated from her husband in 2019, frequently attended pro-Trump rallies. She flew to Washington, DC, from San Diego, California, with the intent to participate in the protest this week, her mother said.

“Her political views were strong and adamant, and she voiced them whenever she could,” Witthoeft said.

A CNN review of Babbitt’s social media accounts determined Babbitt frequently voiced support for President Trump and other conservative figures on Facebook. She also shared content promoting political conspiracy theories often pushed by far-right figures.

Babbitt served as a senior airman in the US Air Force from 2004 to 2008 under the name Ashli Elizabeth McEntee, according to military records. She was a member of the Air Force Reserve from 2008 to 2010 and was in the Air National Guard from 2010 until November 2016, records show.

“She served in the United States Air Force and was deployed four times and came back safely, only to have her own country shoot her down,” Witthoeft said tearfully by phone.

The US Capitol Police employee who shot Babbitt has been placed on administrative leave and their police powers have been suspended pending a joint Metro Police and USCP investigation, USCP said.

US Capitol secured, 4 dead after rioters stormed the halls of Congress to block Biden’s win

“This is a tragic incident, and I send my condolences to the victim’s family and friends,” Metro Police Chief Contee said.

Two people who saw the shooting, left-wing activist John Sullivan and documentary filmmaker Jade Sacker, provided CNN with video of the incident and described the moments beforehand.

Sullivan said rioters were using flag poles and other items to smash glass windows inside the Capitol. The woman then tried to make her way through the window when several people with guns came out through the doorways.

“The second that she climbed through the window she got shot right in the neck area, fell backwards,” Sullivan said in an interview that broadcast on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.”

“I just remember the sense of shock and sorrow that somebody just died and did not need to die.”

The woman was trying to enter an area that did not yet appear to have been breached by rioters, Sullivan said.

“It was an area that was completely blocked off,” he said. “They had chairs up against the doorway, tables, so people couldn’t get in.”

Three others dead

Three other people who had come from out of state died of “medical emergencies” during the riot, police said.

“One adult female and two adult males appear to have suffered from separate medical emergencies, which resulted in their deaths,” Contee said. “Any loss of life in the District is tragic and our thoughts are with anyone impacted by their loss.”

They were identified as Benjamin Philips, 50, of Ringtown, Pennsylvania; Kevin Greeson, 55, of Athens, Alabama; and Rosanne Boyland, 34, of Kennesaw, Georgia. The three were on the grounds of the Capitol when they experienced their medical emergencies, Contee said.

Kevin Greeson

Greeson had a history of high blood pressure and suffered a heart attack amid the excitement, his family said in a statement to CNN. He was an advocate of Trump and attended the event to show his support.

“He was excited to be there to experience this event,” the statement said. “He was not there to participate in violence or rioting, nor did he condone such actions.”

The family says they are devastated by the loss.

“Kevin was a wonderful father and husband who loved life,” the family statement said. “He loved to ride motorcycles, he loved his job and his coworkers, and he loved his dogs.”

Boyland’s family is also mourning her death, her brother-in-law, Justin Cave, told CNN affiliate WGCL. The family is still working to learn more details about the specifics of her death, he said.

As the family watched Wednesday’s events, they hoped that Boyland wasn’t among the crowd, Cave said. “Tragically she was there and it cost her life,” he said.

“She was a wonderful sister, daughter, and aunt. Anyone who knew her knows how compassionate she was, she always put others before herself,” Cave said.

DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services transported people to area hospitals with injuries ranging from cardiac arrest to multiple fractures after falling from scaffolding on the West front of the Capitol building.

However, city officials did not say whether any of these people are the ones who died.

One of the most recognizable figures in the crowd was a man in his 30s with a painted face, fur hat and a helmet with horns. The protester, Jake Angeli — known by followers as the QAnon Shaman — quickly became a symbol of the bizarre and frightening spectacle. In recent months, Angeli has been a regular presence at pro-Trump protests in Arizona, including demonstrations outside the Maricopa County vote-counting center.

Biden: Trump skipping my inauguration a good thing

Jan 8, 2021  CNN

President-elect Joe Biden said President Donald Trump’s decision to skip his inauguration is “one of the few things he and I have ever agreed on.” “It’s a good thing, him not showing up,” Biden told reporters Friday in Wilmington, Delaware, at a news conference after he introduced Cabinet nominees. “He exceeded even my worst notions about him. He’s been an embarrassment to the country, embarrassed us around the world. He’s not worthy to hold that office,” Biden said. However, Biden said he is glad Vice President Mike Pence will attend his inauguration. “He’s welcome. I think it’s important that as much as we can stick to what have been the historical precedents of how an administration changes should be maintained. And so Mike, the vice president, is welcome to come. We’d be honored to have him there, and to move forward in the transition,” Biden said. House Democrats are preparing articles of impeachment, expected to be introduced as soon as Monday. The President-elect did not weigh in on whether Congress should impeach Trump and remove him from office over his actions leading up to his supporters’ riot at the Capitol this week. He said he and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are focused on preparing their agenda to combat the coronavirus pandemic and bolster a battered economy. #Biden #CNN #News

Man seen in viral riot photo at Nancy Pelosi’s desk arrested, officials say

Jan 8, 2021  CNN

The man photographed sitting at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s desk during Wednesday’s riots in the US Capitol has been arrested and charged with three federal counts, including theft of public property, federal officials said. Federal officials said Richard Barnett of Arkansas was taken into custody Barnett was charged with knowingly entering and remaining in restricted building grounds without authority, violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds as well as the theft of public property, officials said. A resident of Alabama was also charged in connection with the pipe bomb found on the south side of the Capitol building. Eleven Molotov cocktails and military-style weapon were found in his pickup truck, officials said. “Just because you’ve left the DC region you can still expect a knock on the door if we find out you were part of the criminal activity at the Capitol,” said Steven D’Antuono, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Washington field office. “The FBI is not sparing any resources in this investigation,” he said. #CNN #News

Meet the New Yes Man on Trump’s COVID Task Force: Dr. Scott Atlas Wants U.S. to Adopt Herd Immunity

Sep 1, 2020  Democracy Now!

As the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the United States passes 6 million, with a death toll of over 183,000, the Trump administration is loosening coronavirus restrictions, fast-tracking vaccine approval and disregarding safety tests, and now one of Trump’s top medical advisers is pushing for the country to adopt a controversial “herd immunity” strategy, raising alarm among public health officials. Washington Post health reporter Yasmeen Abutaleb says Dr. Scott Atlas is not an epidemiologist and was brought on specifically because he would back President Trump’s position “about how the pandemic was going, that the threat was receding, that the country should reopen.” We also speak with Yale epidemiologist Gregg Gonsalves, who argues the U.S. is already following an “implicit” herd immunity policy. “They realize it’s politically toxic, so they don’t want to use the phrase, but if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is a duck,” he says. #DemocracyNow Democracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs on nearly 1,400 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

Photographer Captures Amusing Pics Of Stunning Mantises, And Here Are 30 Of The Best Ones

Ilona Bali?nait? and Rokas Laurinavi?ius

Wildlife photographer Pang Way shoots a lot from up close. Mostly, little critters that don’t normally catch our attention and that are so small, we walk right past them without even noticing them.

A big and important part of Way’s work is mantises or praying mantises like people like to call them. They got this name for their prominent front legs, which are bent and held together at an angle that suggests the position of prayer.

But regardless of what you call them, these insects are formidable predators. They have triangular heads poised on a long “neck” or elongated thorax. Mantises can turn their heads 180 degrees to scan the area with two large compound eyes and three other simple eyes located between them.

Typically green or brown and well camouflaged in their surroundings, mantises lie in ambush or patiently stalk their quarry. They use their front legs to snare their prey with reflexes so quick that they are difficult to spot with the naked eye. Their legs are further equipped with spikes for snaring prey and pinning it in place.

Few photographers have portrayed just how stunning these little berserk fellas are. And Way is one of them. Continue scrolling and enjoy these fascinating pics.

Bored Panda: I Try To Bring Awareness To Plastic Waste With My Assemblage Paintings (22 Pics)

  Christine Rose Curry

Community member

Most conventional plastic crap is made from non-biodegradable petrochemicals—instead of decomposing over time, it simply breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces (micro-plastics).

Since the 1950’s, plastic has become a popular material in the world: used in endless ways, found in countless items, and often made to be discarded and disregarded in mere minutes.

Since the majority of plastic is non-biodegradable, plastic waste has only accumulated over time, affecting our physical health and environment. In an effort to bring awareness to this issue and to keep some plastic from going into landfills or the ocean, I make art from plastic waste. What can we do to make a change?

Spread awareness, be mindful of plastic consumption, demand more plastic be made biodegradable—buying only plastic items that are. Be creative about making a change!

China Doesn’t Want Our Plastic Crap Anymore

At the end of 2017, China announced it was going to start restricting imported plastic (and other goods) for recycling. For decades, the USA had sent tons and tons of plastic to China for this reason. Once the restrictions were put in place, waste management companies in America had to find other options for recycling. The two choices: greatly increase the price for recycling or throw it away— most have chosen the latter.

Rare Black Panther Shadows His Leopard Mate in Incredible Shot by Photographer Mithun H

Rare Black Panther Shadows His Leopard Mate in Incredible Shot by Photographer Mithun H

JULY 23, 2020  GRACE EBERT

“The Eternal Couple.” Image © Mithun H, shared with permission

Since 2014, wildlife filmmaker and photographer Mithun H has been pining for sightings of Saya, a black panther that’s been eluding his admirers in the Kabini Forest in India for years. After camping out in the area for six days, the photographer captured a stunning image of the mysterious animal shadowing his leopard partner, Cleopatra.

Mithun H notes that the couple have been together for four years and have an atypical relationship for the species. “Usually in the courting pairs generally it is the male who takes charge and moves around with the female following close behind. But with this couple, it was definitely Cleo who was in charge while the panther followed,” he wrote on Instagram.

This isn’t the photographer’s first experience with the rare cat, either. He previously worked with National Geographic Wild on The Real Black Panther, which follows Saya’s life. “It’s been a passion and a beautiful journey in the woods of Kabini,” the photographer says. (via PetaPixel)

Trump: Covid-19 crisis will probably get worse before it gets better

Jul 21, 2020   CNN

President Donald Trump warned the coronavirus pandemic is likely to worsen before improving, during the first outing of his revived daily briefings The President’s late afternoon appearance in the White House briefing room was designed to project a more commanding role for Trump, who has largely been absent in discussing the health crisis ravaging the country and has seen his poll numbers plummet as a result. In a press conference that lasted around 30 minutes, Trump again said he believed the virus would disappear and insisted the American response to the pandemic was “much better” than in other places. But he also offered more realistic projections that his advisers hope will make him appear like a sober-minded leader. “It will probably unfortunately get worse before it gets better,” Trump said — echoing a prediction he made at the start of April of a “rough” two weeks ahead. And he continued offering belated encouragement to wear masks, at one point pulling out his navy blue face covering and claiming he had no problem strapping it on (though he did not during the briefing). “Whether you like the mask or not, they have an impact,” he said, adding later: “I’m getting used to the mask.” Trump appeared from the podium by himself, unaccompanied by any of the health experts who comprise the White House coronavirus task force. About an hour before Trump stepped before cameras, Dr. Anthony Fauci said on CNN that he hadn’t been invited to participate. #Trump #CNN #News

Combining Vibrant Shapes and Simple Lines, Illustrator Willian Santiago Evokes Scenes of Brazil

JANUARY 3, 2020  GRACE EBERT

 All images © Willian Santiago

With an affinity for bold colors, Willian Santiago documents what he sees around Londrina, the city in southern Brazil where he lives. He utilizes bright blues, greens, and reds to create his illustrations of wild animals and posed female figures that often resemble the geometric shapes and lines of woodblock prints frequently seen in Brazilian art.

“I love exploring,” Santiago said in an interview with WePresent. “It may be the step I spend most of my time on when creating an illustration. Color arouses different feelings in people. I ultimately want my work to create feelings of joy.” With a background in textile and pattern design, the artist says “old Vogue magazine covers, Art Deco and overly posed figures” often serve as inspiration, in addition to being “surrounded by strong women” as a child. Follow Santiago’s striking digital illustrations on Instagram, and check out his available prints on Society6. (via Tu Recepcja)

National Geographic: Pride Month reads and Bare to the elements

Pride Month reads: Tales and memoirs by James BaldwinLucy Jane Bledsoe, and Samantha Allen are part of our 10 LBGTQ reads on travel adventures, part of our Around the World in Books series. The stories, writes Gillian Kendall for Nat Geo, “share both what unites us and what makes us unique, whether on an American heartland road trip or a bus journey to the tip of the world.” Also on the list: Andrew Sean Greer’s Less, a Pulitzer-winning novel about an aging writer who is jilted by a younger lover—and who travels the world with one shiny blue suit. Above, a Pride flags hangs in Antwerp, Belgium, in June 2013.

Bare to the elements: This image was taken in the Glencoe area of the Scottish Highlands. Houses like these have been endlessly romanticized in paintings and photographs: a lone cabin, bare to the elements, with nothing but nature as far as the eye can see, says photographer Michael George. “When I first saw this structure, with the tiny forest built to block some of the wind, I pulled my car over and spent some time wondering. Who lives there? With the harsh weather this area is known for, how is the structure still standing? Where do they get their groceries? I have no answers to these questions, but I like to imagine there is a basement as big as the house tucked underneath with supplies to get through the winter, a fire going, and a shelf of books to read.”

Vivid Photographs by Trung Huy Pham Capture Annual Water Lily Harvest in Vietnam

Each year as the Mekong Delta floods, locals gather hordes of long-stemmed lilies from the water-covered rice fields. Photographer Trung Huy Pham recently captured the annual harvest in a vivid series taken in the Long An and An Giang provinces in Vietnam. He photographs the farmers wearing canonical hats as they collect the fast-growing flowers, which often are used as decoration and as additions to hot pots. The pink water lilies swirl in the water, forming an S-shape as their stems align.

Pham shares an incredibly diverse array of shots taken around Vietnam on Instagram.

Ex-FBI deputy director: Here’s what briefing Trump is like

Jul 1, 2020  CNN

The New York Times <nytdirect@nytimes.com>  TheMorning
Jun 30, 2020
By David Leonhardt
Good morning. Trump was briefed on the Russian bounty program months ago. The coronavirus is hitting California hard. And the Supreme Court rules against both abortion restrictions and financial regulation.
How to make sense of the Roberts court

Anti-abortion activists in front of the Supreme Court on Monday.Alex Wong/Getty Images
For anyone trying to make sense of the Supreme Court run by Chief Justice John Roberts, yesterday’s two big decisions were helpful.
In the more prominent one, Roberts joined the court’s four liberal justices to strike down a restrictive Louisiana abortion law. It was the third major decision this month in which Roberts sided with the liberals, having already done so on L.G.B.T.Q. rights and immigration.
The cases have been reminders that the Roberts court is not reliably conservative on every issue, even though Republican presidents appointed five of the nine justices, including Roberts. Over the years, the court has also established a constitutional right to same-sex marriage (with Anthony Kennedy, now retired, as the swing vote); declined to outlaw affirmative action; upheld most parts of Obamacare; and more. These decisions have left many conservatives feeling betrayed.
Yet there is at least one big area in which the Roberts court has continued to lean strongly right: business regulation.
With rare exceptions, the justices have restricted the government’s ability to regulate corporate America. And there was another example yesterday, when the court gave Trump more authority to neutralize the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, an Obama administration creation. The decision was 5 to 4, with the five Republican-appointed justices all on one side and the Democratic appointees on the other.
Similar decisions in the past have overturned campaign-finance law, blocked action on climate change, restricted labor-union activities, reduced workers’ ability to sue their employers and more. As The Times’s Adam Liptak has written, the Roberts court’s rulings have been “far friendlier to business than those of any court since at least World War II.”
These decisions have been part of a larger trend, too. Government policy over the past half-century has generally given more power to corporate executives and less power to their workers. That’s one reason incomes for the affluent have risen so much faster than they have for any other income group.
Whatever you think of the Roberts court, I’d encourage you not to treat it with one broad brush. On some major social issues, it has been moderate or even liberal. On economic issues, the story is very different. Yesterday’s two decisions captured the contrast.
More on the history: “For the past half-century, the court has been drawing up plans for a more economically unequal nation, and that is the America that is now being built,” the journalist Adam Cohen writes in his recent book, “Supreme Inequality.”
More from The Times: Adam Liptak writes about Roberts: “15 years into his tenure, he now wields a level of influence that has caused experts to hunt for historical comparisons.” And Sabrina Tavernise and Elizabeth Dias explain that the abortion ruling doesn’t necessarily mean Roberts will ultimately uphold Roe v. Wade.
FOUR MORE BIG STORIES
1. Trump was briefed on Russian bounties
The Times has reported that U.S. officials briefed President Trump in February about Russia’s payment of bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan. Trump and other administration officials have claimed otherwise in recent days.
The intelligence was included in Trump’s President’s Daily Brief document — a compilation of the latest secrets and best insights about foreign policy and national security. The information was also disseminated more broadly across the intelligence community in an article in the C.I.A.’s World Intelligence Review.
2. Trouble in California
Coronavirus rates are rising in every Western state, including deep-blue California, Oregon and Washington. The pattern shows that the spread of the virus isn’t a reflection only of the partisan divides over whether to wear masks and listen to Trump’s advice.
Much of the Western U.S. appears to have grown complacent about the virus, after having avoided bad outbreaks earlier this year. “Unlike people in the Northeast, many Californians did not have a sense of urgency or immediacy toward the virus because infection rates had been so low for months,” The Times reports, in a close look at the state.

By The New York Times
In other virus developments:
3. China cracks down on Hong Kong
China passed a national security law today that will empower the government in Beijing to crack down on dissent from Hong Kong. Activists expect China to use the law to stifle pro-democracy protests like the ones that have filled Hong Kong’s streets over the last year.
Yesterday, in anticipation of the law, the U.S. placed new restrictions on exports of defense equipment and some high-tech products to Hong Kong.
A nuclear concern: The Trump administration is describing China’s small but growing nuclear arsenal as an imposing threat and hopes to bring Beijing into an arms treaty between the U.S. and Russia.
4. When work-from-home failed

Getty Images
Who needs offices? Employers like Facebook are becoming excited about the long-term prospect of remote working, mostly because of the money it saves. But decades of setbacks suggest a bumpy road ahead. In the past, IBM, Best Buy and other companies scrapped work-from-home experiments after finding that telecommuting diminished accountability and creativity.
But maybe this time really is different, because of the combination of a major health crisis and better technologies like Zoom. Some retailers, expecting that work from home is here to stay, are revamping their offerings to concentrate on a new kind of workplace clothing: the Zoom Shirt.
Here’s what else is happening
  • The South Pole is one of the most rapidly warming places on the planet, with temperatures rising three times faster than the global average since the 1990s.
  • More online platforms are taking action against Trump and his associates: Reddit yesterday banned a major pro-Trump forum, “The_Donald,” and the streaming site Twitch suspended the president’s account for “hateful conduct.”
  • Expect political news today, including a Democratic Senate primary in Colorado and the results of the close Democratic Senate primary in Kentucky, between Amy McGrath and Charles Booker.
  • Joseph James DeAngelo, whose California crime spree in the 1970s and ’80s earned him the nickname the Golden State Killer, pleaded guilty yesterday to 13 counts of first-degree murder.
  • Lives Lived: As the wife of an ambassador and White House chief of protocol, the Dow Chemical heiress Ruth Buchanan entertained world leaders and dazzled American society at her opulent mansions in Washington and Newport, R.I. She has died at 101.
IDEA OF THE DAY: A LOW-IMPACT INQUIRY
Robert Mueller’s two-year Russia investigation uncovered a lot of incriminating material. It found eager attempts by Trump campaign officials to collaborate with Vladimir Putin’s government, as well as multiple efforts by Trump to interfere in investigations of himself and his allies.
Yet Mueller’s work had virtually no impact. It changed few Americans’ minds. Mueller’s report wasn’t even powerful enough to spur much action by House Democrats. They instead impeached Trump over a later phone call with the president of Ukraine.
In the new issue of The New Yorker, Jeffrey Toobin has reconstructed the Mueller investigation in an effort to explain why it was ineffectual. Toobin’s conclusion: Trump’s lawyers and Attorney General William Barr consistently outmaneuvered Mueller and his team. The Trump side played political hardball, while Mueller was slow, afraid of confrontation and ultimately naïve, Toobin argues.
“Mueller had an abundance of legitimate targets to investigate, and his failures emerged from an excess of caution, not of zeal,” Toobin writes. “Mueller forfeited the opportunity to speak clearly and directly about Trump’s crimes, and Barr filled the silence with his high-volume exoneration.”

AP after briefing: White House aware of Russian bounties in 2019; GOP lawmakers urge action

Top officials in the White House were aware in early 2019 of classified intelligence indicating Russia was secretly offering bounties to the Taliban for the deaths of Americans, a full year earlier than has been previously reported.

That’s according to U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the intelligence, reports James Laporta.

The assessment was included in at least one of President Donald Trump’s written daily intelligence briefings at the time, according to the officials. The White House did not respond to questions about Trump or other officials’ awareness of Russia’s provocations in 2019.

But the revelations cast new doubt on the White House’s efforts to distance Trump from the Russian intelligence assessments.

Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, denied that Russian intelligence officers had offered payments to the Taliban in exchange for targeting U.S. and coalition forces.

Trump has sought throughout his time in office to improve relations with —  and at times mollify —  Russia and Putin.

Congress: Eight Democrats are to be briefed today about the explosive allegations, following Republicans who attended a Monday briefing on the matter. The GOP lawmakers expressed alarm about Russia’s activities in Afghanistan and urged the administration to hold Putin accountable. Members of Congress in both parties are calling for additional information and consequences for Moscow, report Zeke Miller, James Laporta and Mary Clare Jalonick.

Afghanistan: A Taliban spokesman says that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has called the Taliban’s chief peace negotiator amid the roiling controversy in Washington over the Russian bounty scandal, Kathy Gannon reports from Islamabad.

Distancing from Trump? For the entire duration of his tenure in the White House, more than three years now, Donald Trump instilled such fear in the Republican Party’s leaders that most kept criticism of his turbulent leadership or inconsistent politics to themselves, but that’s beginning to change. Some GOP loyalists are distancing themselves from Trump’s handling of the pandemic and race relations, report Steve Peoples, Jonathan Lemire and Jill Colvin. And the furor over Russian bounties is adding more fuel to the fire.

Trump’s two contradictory Russias confound coherent US policy; President faces pressure from Congress on bounties

The Trump administration seems unable to make up its mind: Russia is at once a mortal enemy and a misunderstood friend.

Now, intelligence suggesting Russia was encouraging attacks on U.S. and allied forces in Afghanistan by putting bounties on their heads has thrust the matter into the heart of the 2020 campaign.

For the past three years, the administration has careered between President Donald Trump’s attempts to curry favor and friendship with Russian President Vladimir Putin and longstanding deep-seated concerns about Putin’s intentions.

As Trump has repeatedly and openly cozied up to Putin, his administration has imposed harsh sanctions on Russia.

The dizzying, often contradictory, paths followed by Trump on the one hand and his hawkish national security aides on the other have muddied the waters among allies and enemies alike, reports Matt Lee.

Congress: Trump is coming under growing pressure from lawmakers to respond to the explosive allegations. Democrats are accusing Trump of bowing to Putin and are demanding more answers about U.S. intelligence on the matter. Republicans have largely defended the president, arguing along with the White House that the intelligence was unverified.

Military: The relationship between the nation’s veterans and Trump has been strained repeatedly over the last four years. But just four months before Election Day, new cracks with dangerous political ramifications are being exposed amid the reports that Trump either ignored, or was unaware of, a Russian plot to kill U.S. troops, Steve Peoples and Sarah Blake Morgan report.

Analysis: While President Trump seems to rarely leave a thought unspoken or tweeted, it’s increasingly clear there are things he won’t say. He’s declined to directly address the Russia bounties allegations. He hasn’t issued a blanket call for Americans to wear face masks to combat the virus. And he hasn’t offered much balm to those reckoning with the stain of racism in American life. Such words don’t come easily to Trump — and his silence speaks volumes, writes White House news editor Nancy Benac.

Russia’s Constitutional Vote: In the meantime, not facing a likely uphill battle or a bitterly divided electorate like Trump in the U.S. presidential election in November, President Putin is wrapping up his main political project of the year: the constitutional vote that would allow him to extend his rule until 2036. With the final day of week-long voting today, Putin is all but guaranteed to get the result he wants following a massive campaign to get voters to say “yes” to the changes, reports Vladimir Isachenkov from Moscow.

To honor essential workers, Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto, who goes by Vhils (previously), recently completed an expansive public artwork at the São João University Hospital Centre in Porto. Vhils chiseled 10 masked figures into an outdoor wall at the facility, creating a permanent homage to nurses, doctors, cleaning staff, maintenance workers, and kitchen employees. “It is a commendation of the courage, dedication, and selflessness with which they place their lives at risk in the defense of our own,” the artist says. “The disposition of the people in the composition, side-by-side, aims to symbolize not only the concept of frontline but also cooperation and teamwork.”

Follow Vhils on Instagram to keep up with his upcoming carved artworks, and check out the book he recently released that collects his public projects. (via Street Art News)
