On Segregated Suburbs, Trump Says the Quiet Part Out Loud

quote [ Targeting HUD?s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule, the president said on Twitter that enforcing housing desegregation would have a ?devastating impact.?( ]

I can't tell if this continued all in on racism is a good polling strategy or not. I guess if your plan is to cancel elections then...

Feds to review investigations into two Black men found hanging in California

quote [ Fuller, 24, was found dead near Palmdale City Hall on Wednesday afternoon by a passerby, a sheriff's official has said, and his death was initially ruled an apparent suicide.

Harsch, 38, was found hanging from a tree near a homeless encampment late last month in Victorville, about 53 miles east of Palmdale, officials have said. ]

Victorville is a terrible place I have no interest in ever being in. Palmdale is unknown to me, however it would seem that it is also really bad. How was this just brushed over?

Supreme Court Delivers Major Victory To LGBTQ Employees

quote [ The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that the 1964 Civil Rights Act barring sex discrimination in the workplace protects LGBTQ employees from being fired because of their sexual orientation. The vote was 6-to-3, with conservatives Chief Justice John Roberts and Neil Gorsuch joining the court's four liberal justices in the majority. ]

6-3 with Gorsuch wtiting the opinion, queue mega heads already going batshit calling for Gorsuch's head.

That said, nice to get some great news for once.

Germany passes ban on 'gay conversion therapy'

quote [ Germany's parliament has passed a law banning so-called "gay conversion therapy" for young people nationwide.

The legislation is intended to stop groups offering the service - which claims to be able to change a person's sexual orientation - to under-18s... ]

Always good to see, hopefully they ban it from being used on older people as well.

At Greek refugee camp, there are few defenses against COVID-19 threat

quote [ Human rights activists and medical nonprofits are calling on the Greek government to evacuate overcrowded refugee camps on islands in the Aegean Sea, where an outbreak of COVID-19 would likely cause humanitarian catastrophe. Concerns are especially grave regarding Moria camp on the island of Lesbos. Special correspondent Malcolm Brabant reports. ]

This was inhuman for the last decade ? especially leaving it to Greece to do the dirty work ? but the current political hesitation to get these people out is unbearable.
They're already closing off access for helpers while not being able to even sustain water supply.

Media Silent as Poll Workers Contract Covid-19 at Primaries That DNC, Biden Campaign Claimed Were Safe

quote [ A senior Biden adviser falsely claimed on CNN the CDC had deemed in-person voting safe, and not a single major media outlet reported on it. ]

Almost like they were afraid that Biden's momentum was going to fizzle out if people realized that all the solutions to handling Coviod-19 were the ones Biden has been explicitly denying as part of his messaging.

And then there's the rape accusation against Biden by a former aide and the media's attempt to completely ignore it as much as possible. Yahoo news covered it for about a day before first moving the article to their sports section and then apparently finally deleting it?

HuffPo picked it up, so did Newsweek surprisingly.

Amazonians United Wins PTO for all Amazon Workers

quote [ So why did we begin a campaign for PTO? Because we found out that Amazon was promising us Vacation Time and PTO on paper, but denying it to us in practice. ]

#NotDying4WallStreet Goes Viral as Progressives Reject Efforts to Put Corporate Profits Over Public Health

Turns out so many of those workers who were told they didn't deserve $15/hour are essential. Who knew? If only some guy in the 1800's wrote about a theory of value centered around labor.

Trump offers 'large sums' for exclusive access to coronavirus vaccine

quote [ German government tries to fight off aggressive takeover bid by US, say reports. Trump was doing everything to secure a vaccine against the coronavirus for the US, ?but for the US only?. ]

Tagged as politics. Pretty clever, because while something like this is unlikely to succeed, it will play very well with the plebs at home
