Joe Biden’s entreaties to Republicans on his infrastructure bill are picking up steam. But progressives are warning the president not to get too attached to his GOP friends.
“I personally don’t think the Republicans are serious about addressing the major crises facing this country. Maybe I’m wrong, but we’re certainly not going to wait for an indefinite period of time,” said Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
“We’re gonna move forward rapidly," Sanders vowed. "They have something to say? Now is the time to say it.”

Minneapolis is on edge as it anticipates the outcome of Chauvin’s trial and reels from the death of 20-year-old Daunte Wrightin Brooklyn Center.
Judge Peter Cahill showed frustration with Waters' rhetoric shortly after the jury was dismissed Monday to begin deliberations. Chauvin's defense attorney had motioned for a mistrial in light of Waters' comments. Cahill denied the motion but called it “disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch" for elected officials to comment on the outcome of the case.
“Their failure to do so, I think, is abhorrent, he said. ”But I don’t think it has prejudiced us with additional material that would prejudice this jury. They have been told not to watch the news. I trust they are following those instructions."

Jennifer Pritzker, the world’s first and only out trans billionaire, has said she’ll consider moving her wealth out of Tennessee because of new anti-LGBT+ state laws.

Her private family trust is currently held in Nashville, Tennessee but she has threatened to move it due to ongoing attacks on LGBT+ rights in the state.

"Grave mistake," muttered McConnell.
"Insane," said Graham, "dumber than dirt and... dangerous."
Of more interest were the responses of conservative Republicans who commended the president. Among them were Sens. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley and ex-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a group that contains several potential candidates for the GOP nomination in 2024.
Donald Trump himself weighed in Sunday, saying Biden's decision was "wonderful," but Joe should have stuck to Trump's May 1 deadline for withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Adding a veteran's voice to the broad consensus was the American Legion which called for an end to America's "forever war," and repeal of congressional authorizations to fight this war.

The House passed a resolution on Monday to formally condemn the Chinese government and the Hong Kong regional government for actions that "violate the rights and freedoms" of the region's citizens.
Lawmakers adopted the resolution by a 418-1 vote that calls on the Chinese government and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to release pro-democracy activists and politicians arrested under the national security law enacted last year that reduces the city's autonomy and imposes harsh punishments for protesters.
"By passing this resolution, the House sends a strong bipartisan message demanding that the Chinese and Hong Kong governments respect the will of the people of Hong Kong. We will continue to push for democracy and respect for human rights in Hong Kong. We will continue to demonstrate that we stand in solidarity with the pro-democracy figures and activists who have made tremendous sacrifices for their city and for their core human rights," said House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Gregory Meeks

Conservatives have seized on Waters' comments, saying she is inflaming tensions as Minneapolis looks to prevent looting and destruction that occurred after Floyd's death last year.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked at Monday's daily White House briefing if Biden agrees with Waters' comment, but she attempted to tamp down the president's stance.
"He recognizes the issue of police violence against people of color, communities of color is one of great anguish, and it’s exhausting and quite emotional at times," she said, adding, "But as he also always says, protests must be peaceful. That’s what he continues to call for."

'Almost everybody I endorse wins': Trump crowns himself 2022 kingmaker

Former President Donald Trump has only been out of office for a few months, but he's already preparing for a big political comeback, even if it's too soon to decide on another run for the White House.
During an interview that aired Monday evening on Fox News, Trump hinted at his heavy involvement in the 2022 midterm elections, which will be a highly competitive year for both major parties. With Democrats in narrow control of the House and Senate, Republicans will be scrambling to topple their power.
Trump may have lost to President Joe Biden in 2020, but he still views himself as a kingmaker in the Republican Party.

What's Needed for a More Lasting Peace in Afghanistan


What's Needed for a More Lasting Peace in Afghanistan
Details
19 April 2021
AFGHAN WITHDRAWAL-An Afghan taxi-driver in Vancouver told one of us a decade ago that this day would come.
"We defeated the Persian Empire in the eighteenth century, the British in the nineteenth, the Soviets in the twentieth. Now, with NATO, we're fighting twenty-eight countries, but we'll defeat them, too," said the taxi-driver, surely not a member of the Taliban, but quietly proud of his country's empire-killing credentials. 
Now, after nearly twenty years of a war that has been as bloody and futile as all those previous invasions and occupations, the last 3,500 U.S. troops and their NATO brothers-in-arms will be coming home from Afghanistan.

A US congresswoman is under fire after urging demonstrators to "get more confrontational" if a not-guilty verdict comes in the George Floyd case.
At a protest in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Maxine Waters told protesters to "stay on the streets" if ex-officer Derek Chauvin is acquitted in the case.
The trial judge said the Democrat's comments were "abhorrent".
Republicans called for a congressional censure of Ms Waters, but Democrats said she had no reason to apologise.
What did Maxine Waters say?
Ms Waters spoke on Saturday in a Minneapolis suburb not far from where Mr Chauvin, who is white, is on trial accused of the murder and manslaughter of Mr Floyd, a black man, in the city on 25 May last year.

WASHINGTON — “It is time to end the forever war.”
So said President Joe Biden in his announcement that, as of Sept. 11, the 20th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, all U.S. troops will be gone from Afghanistan.
The longest war in our history, which cost 2,400 dead, 20,000 wounded and $2 trillion, is ending — but only for Americans, not Afghans.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken assured our NATO allies in Brussels that we are all leaving with our mission accomplished:
“Together we went into Afghanistan to deal with those who attacked us and to make sure that Afghanistan would not again become a haven for terrorists who might attack any of us.

Late night hosts handicap Matthew McConaughey's Texas gubernatorial odds, suggest vaccination messaging
5:26 a.m.
The COVID-19 vaccine is open to all Americans 16 and older as of Monday, and "the Biden administration is trying to get the word out," Jimmy Fallon said on Monday's
Tonight Show, skeptically. "Your idea to get kids vaccinated is putting an 80-year-old scientist on TikTok? Good luck with that. You know Biden's old when he's like, 'We need someone young and hip for the Snapchat videos. How about that kid Dr. Fauci?'"
NASA successfully flew a helicopter on Mars, Fallon noted. "The flight lasted a total of 30 seconds. The men on the team said it was a complete success, while the women agreed so they wouldn't hurt anyone's feelings." And "a new poll shows Matthew McConaughey is leading Gov. Greg Abbott by 12 points in a hypothetical matchup for governor of Texas," he said. "When asked if he's actually gonna run for office, McConaughey said 'I might, I might, I might.'"

While Biden is being pilloried by some for pulling out too soon, the truth is that he is violating a May 1 deadline for U.S. troop withdrawal that was painstakingly negotiated under the Trump Administration.
