As White House reaches out, Republicans seem determined to kill Biden's jobs plan one way or another

Senate Republicans are reportedly weighing «going bigger» on President Joe Biden's jobs and infrastructure plan as the White House works to shepherd the plan through Congress, according to Politico. How big? As high as $800 billion—more than $200 billion higher than their initial $568 billion counter-offer to Biden's $2.3 trillion American Jobs Plan. But no matter how high (or low, as it were) Republicans go, they've always got a poison-pill deal killer at the ready. Take Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi, for example, who told CNN Tuesday that $800 billion is the «absolute upper limit» on what Republicans might be willing to support. But even if the White House managed to squeeze some good stuff into an extremely pared down bill to attract GOP votes, we find out those votes won't materialize anyway.

James Clyburn is wrong on this one. Qualified immunity must be tossed out with other trash

House Majority Whip James Clyburn is facing criticism for being all too willing to compromise when Black lives are at stake. As progressive legislators try to get federal legislation passed to overhaul policing in America, Clyburn said Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union that he would be willing to support that legislation even if it did not end the controversial legal protection known as qualified immunity. The doctrine frees individual government officials and police officers from guilt in lawsuits unless they have violated a “clearly established” statutory or constitutional right. Ending the protection is a key feature of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, which would also ban no-knock warrants, chokeholds, and racial and religious profiling as well as establish a national database to monitor police misconduct. It’s named in honor of a Black father who was murdered when a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck for more than nine minutes. Although the House passed the anti-profiling legislation in March, it has failed to advance to the Senate, with Republicans refusing to allow police officers to truly be held accountable for their actions. Clyburn told CNN he’s willing to compromise. “I will never sacrifice good on the altar of perfect,” he said. “I just won’t do that.”

On view through May 22 at Thinkspace Projects in Los Angeles, his acrylic paintings center on oversized subjects who embody the transitional state between deep sleep and waking.

Nature Resurges to Overtake Abandoned Architecture in a New Book of Photos by Jonk

From dilapidated power plants, abandoned medical facilities, and amusement parks left in rusted ruin, the scenes that French photographer Jonathan Jimenez, aka Jonk, captures are evidence of nature’s endurance and power to reclaim spaces transformed by people. Now compiled in a new book titled Naturalia II, 221 images shot across 17 countries frame the thriving vegetation that crawls across chipped concrete and architecture in unruly masses. This succeeding volume is a follow-up to Jonk’s first book by the same name and focuses on the ways the ecological crisis has evolved during the last three years. More

 “Weakness of the Flesh” is a captivating and eerie short film that appears to clone dancer Emma Rosenzweig-Bock, who twists and contorts her body amongst a sea of her own figure. Shot in Los Angeles, the disquieting piece contrasts Rosenzweig-Bock’s graceful sequences with more compulsive, Suspiria-esque jolts as she writhes and pulls her dirt-covered body from the concrete. As she dances, her doubles glitch and freeze in position, sometimes predicting her next move or remaining still in a previous bend. More
