Thomas Massie, R-Ky., told "America’s Newsroom" on Thursday that he’d rather take the fine than abide by Pelosi’s mask mandate. "Hell no, I’m not backing down," Massie,...

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger from Illinois became visibly upset as he addressed the Capitol Police officers testifying before the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection. Kinzinger called on his GOP colleagues to stop the partisan outrage and conspiracy theories about the Capitol riots when the "American people deserve the truth."
WASHINGTON - The House Oversight Committee revealed handwritten notes Friday that appear to indicate Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
According to notes penned by Richard Donoghue, who was deputy to then-Acting Attorney General Jeffery Rosen, Trump urged the Department of Justice to declare the results of the election "corrupt" during a Dec. 27 phone call.

Biden, Harris, Schumer, Pelosi agree to work on 'values' of two stalled voting bills


Biden, Harris, Schumer, Pelosi agree to work on 'values' of two stalled voting bills
“Recognizing the challenges ahead, the four leaders agreed on the importance of advancing legislation reflecting the priorities and values of those two bills, having them pass the House of Representatives and the Senate, and withstand constitutional challenge,” the White House said late Friday.
The statement said they “agreed on the moral imperative of passing legislation to protect against voter suppression, electoral subversion, dark money, and partisan gerrymandering and will continue working together toward that goal urgently.
The White House and congressional Democrats are coming under heavy pressure from their progressive base to produce an answer to Republican-backed voting laws in multiple states that focus on “voter integrity” efforts such as voter ID and restricting mail-in ballots.

Washington [US], July 30 (ANI): The first flight evacuating Afghans who worked alongside Americans in Afghanistan has brought more than 200 people to the United States. Friday's arrival at Dulles International Airport outside Washington, D.C., brought Afghan translators and close family members, including scores of children and infants to start a new life in the United States.
US President Joe Biden on Friday thanked Afghans for standing with America against the Taliban and welcomed the arrival of the first flight of Operation Allies Refuge.
"Most of all, I want to thank these brave Afghans for standing with the United States, and today, I am proud to say to them: "Welcome home," said Biden in a statement.

Biden nominates first Muslim to religious freedom post; Holocaust scholar as anti-Semitism envoy


Mr. Khan and his wife, Ghazala, lost their 27-year-old son, U.S. Army Captain Humayun Saquib Khan, in a 2004 suicide attack in Iraq. At the convention in 2016, Mr. Khan pulled a pocket-sized copy of the Constitution from his jacket and questioned whether Mr. Trump had ever read it.

Another Israeli spy story: When will it end? -- Puppet Masters -- Sott.net

Protest against the Hungarian government for using Pegasus spyware to monitor journalists, opposition leaders and activists in Budapest. It is perhaps not necessary to point out how the mainstream media in the United States as well as in Europe and Oceania persist in ignoring or otherwise covering up stories that make the Israelis look bad. Recent accounts of the slaughter of children and mostly civilians in Gaza by Israeli planes, missiles and artillery consistently try to depict the conflict as warfare between two comparable opponents, ignoring the enormous disparity in the military force available to the two sides. Israel has a modern army, air force and navy while Hamas has nothing but some small arms as well as improvised rockets and incendiary balloons.

Alaska Native artist creates stamp for Postal Service


JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska Native artist Rico Worl said he jumped at the chance to create for the U.S. Postal Service a stamp he hopes will be a gateway for people to learn about his Tlingit culture.
“I think a lot of people already are learning that there’s a lot more richness in authentic work, and authentic work from Indigenous people and the stories that are there,” he told The Associated Press in a recent interview.
A ceremony marking the release of Worl's Raven Story stamp was held Friday in Juneau, where Worl lives. The event featured dancers, including Worl, and the telling of a version of the Raven story.

Ronald Leonard expects the sheriff to arrive at the door of his Daytona Beach, Florida, home any day after the federal ban on evictions expires on Saturday.
"I'm kind of a wreck," said Leonard, a retiree who lives on a fixed income. "If I end up on the street, I'll never survive."
Like many of the 11.4 million people currently behind on their rent, Leonard was able to remain in his home after his landlord filed for an eviction because of the federal eviction moratorium. Put in place by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last September to stop the spread of coronavirus, the order banned the eviction of renters for nonpayment of rent.

Study: Vaccinated people can carry as much virus as others


By LINDSEY TANNER, MIKE STOBBE and PHILIP MARCELO

In another dispiriting setback for the nation’s efforts to stamp out the coronavirus, scientists who studied a big COVID-19 outbreak in Massachusetts concluded that vaccinated people who got so-called breakthrough infections carried about the same amount of the coronavirus as those who did not get the shots.
Health officials on Friday released details of that research, which was key in this week's decision by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to recommend that vaccinated people return to wearing masks indoors in parts of the U.S. where the delta variant is fueling infection surges. The authors said the findings suggest that the CDC's mask guidance should be expanded to include the entire country, even outside of hot spots.

Floyd Cooper, illustrator of Black life for children, dies at 65


Floyd Cooper, illustrator of Black life for children, dies at 65
In this book Mr. Cooper illustrated the story of enslaved people who built the White House.
by Alex Vadukul
(NYT NEWS SERVICE)
.- Floyd Cooper, a celebrated children’s book illustrator who explored the African American experience in stories rooted in history, like one about a boy in Alabama in 1955 trying to comprehend why a Black woman on his bus refused to give up her seat to a white passenger, died July 15 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He was 65.
His wife, Velma Cooper, said the cause was cancer.
Over 30 years and some 100 titles, Cooper illustrated children’s stories that not only carried his earthy and golden pastel impressions of Black life, but that also strived to recount chapters of African American history that he felt weren’t taught enough in classrooms — if they were taught at all.

Biden Calls On The Military To Look Into Making The COVID-19 Vaccine Mandatory


ARI SHAPIRO, HOST:
President Biden has asked the military to look into making the COVID-19 vaccine mandatory. The Department of Defense admits vaccination rates are around 50%, no higher than the rest of the nation. And concerns are growing about the more contagious delta variant. Steve Walsh of member station KPBS in San Diego covers the military. Good to have you here.
STEVE WALSH, BYLINE: Hi, Ari.
SHAPIRO: Explain what the president is asking the military to do exactly.
WALSH: So the president is directing Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin to look at what steps need to be taken to mandate the vaccine. Now, many congressional Democrats have been urging Biden to just go ahead and mandate it for the military, which he could do as commander in chief. He's been reluctant to do that. Right now, the vaccine is under emergency use authorization. There is a law that says the military cannot require treatment that is not fully approved by the Food and Drug Administration. That law is designed essentially to not allow the military to become guinea pigs for new treatments. Obviously, this is a bit different situation, though, since the very same vaccine is being administered to the general public already.
