Bad Sinema

Senator Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona said she would not support undermining the Senate filibuster to enact new voting rights laws, presenting a major obstacle for President Biden’s drive to push the protections through Congress. CNN featured an explosive showdown between former Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) surrogate Nina Turner and Jonathan Kott, former senior adviser to Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV). Bernie Sanders and two of his Senate colleagues on Friday demanded that the Wall Street behemoth BlackRock, the largest shareholder in Warrior Met Coal, intervene on the side of Alabama miners as they continue their strike for fair wages and benefits. Conservatives are ripping Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh online after he sided with the court’s liberal wing to save President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for health care workers. Attempts to remove books from school libraries have increased, spurred by activism from conservative parent groups and resistance to teaching socially progressive ideas in schools.
