House passes COVID-19 relief bill along party lines, as Republicans 'unify' against helping America

At 2 AM ET Saturday, the House passed the COVID-19 relief package along a 219 to 212 party line vote. The bill includes a $1,400 direct payment to individuals earning less than $75,000 or for couples earning below $150,000. It extends federal unemployment benefits through August. It provides an additional $50 billion to speed the delivery of vaccines as well as create a national strategy for testing and case tracing. Another $200 billion goes to schools to assist in returning students to the classroom safely. It also includes $350 billion for state, tribal, and local governments, which have seen a huge revenue drop over the last year, at the same time there was an increased need for government assistance. And the bill preserves a measure that increases federal minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2025. The reason for the vote taking place at such a late (or early) hour was simple enough—Republicans did everything they could to delay the vote, including calling dozens of witnesses to slow a day that began considering the bill at 9:30 AM. The precise reason that Republicans began making objections and calling a large number of witnesses was simple enough—they wanted to push the vote past primetime, both so no one would see them voting against a bill that will send most Americans a much-needed check, and they wanted to unpack the same “passed in the dark of night” language that they’ve deployed so often in past. Because Republicans have set opposition to the COVID-19 relief plan as their “unifying” issue.

Vaccination process is frustrating, imperfect ... and filled with small joys and triumphs

The coronavirus vaccine is still a ways away for a lot of us, and watching the myriad ways our states are making the vaccination process go slowly or inequitably has become one of the nation’s most infuriating pastimes. The glass is definitely half empty—there have been racial inequities in vaccination rates and indeed, focusing on people over 75 first created its own racial inequity, because Black people have a life expectancy below 75 in the U.S.; teachers are being pushed into in-person teaching without getting vaccinated first; grocery workers are similarly being left out despite having to work in person; and people are outright cheating. There’s a lot to be angry about. But at the same time, the glass really is half full here: 13.9% of the U.S. population has had at least one dose, and 6.5% have had both doses. More than 1.5 million shots a day are being administered. Vaccine production is increasing. Some areas have embarked on meaningful programs to fix racial inequities. And while we shouldn’t let go of the push to get things right, and the rage when things are done wrong, there’s another vaccination-related pastime available: rejoicing in the people who are getting their shots. Maybe it’s someone close to home. In the lobby of my building, there’s a list posted where people can sign when they’ve been vaccinated, and I’m not going to lie: I look at that list regularly, celebrating that my elderly and immunocompromised neighbors are on their way to safety. Maybe it’s close to someone else’s home—I’m with my coworker Gabe Ortíz on this one: xTweets about parents and elder family members getting the vaccine are my favorite tweets. 🥺😭— Gabe Ortíz (@TUSK81) February 25, 2021 One group is getting an extra up-close view of all this relief and joy: That would be the people administering the vaccinations, who got some attention in an uplifting Washington Post article this week. According to Northern Virginia nurse Akosua “Nana” Poku, “the emotional time is when I see a husband and a wife receive the vaccine together at the same time, and they’re grandparents, and they’re just so excited to see their grandchildren.” Ohio pharmacy Ebram Botros, an immigrant from Egypt, “feels a special responsibility to reassure Black patients who may be ­vaccine-averse from a historical legacy of medical abuse,” the Post reported.  ”I say quite often, this is probably the most important thing I’ll ever do in my career,” Washington, D.C., nurse Corie Robinson said. An Arizona pharmacist administering vaccines in nursing homes who ended up assigned to vaccinate his wife’s grandmother described his family’s excitement and said: “All of these residents that we’re interacting with have at least one loved one or friend or family member that is going to be going through those same emotions.” After nearly a year of fear and loss and sacrifice and stress, there is something beautiful happening. Hope is here even for those of us who will be waiting a while. It’s an imperfect process, a frustrating process, but every day 1.5 million people are getting that shot. Let’s also witness the joy. xThere is life changing work happening out here at the @FEMA vaccination site in Los Angeles. The story of one of our own, a young soldier from right here in L.A., who vaccinated his mother... that's going to stick with me for a while. pic.twitter.com/xV0arMpCQO— Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III (@SecDef) February 25, 2021 xMy parents received their first shot of the the COVID-19 vaccine today. I am filled with gratitude for the community advocates helping folks like my parents who are essential workers access the vaccine. For the last year my greatest fear was that they would get sick.— Marissa Molina Q (@MarisitaMo) February 25, 2021 xMy 82-yo grandma, who left her house today for the first time since March 2020 got vaccinated a few mins ago! She lives in Mexico and getting vaccinating there has not been easy. My mom, a bilingual 3rd grade teacher in TX also finally got vaccinated this week!! #GodIsGood 💕🙏— Maya Saenz - KMTV (@Maya_Reports) February 26, 2021 xMom just texted with news that she got her first Pfizer dose. Both parents now vaccinated, it’s like a weight was just lifted I didn’t even know I was carrying.— Tim Hogan (@timjhogan) February 23, 2021 xMY MOM GOT VACCINATED TODAY!!!!! I feel like I can breathe for the first time in a year, she’s that much safer and can go back to the classroom doing what she loves 😭❤️— Lexi Lopez (@_LexiKLopez) February 25, 2021 xToday I volunteered at a COVID-19 vaccination clinic in Baltimore City Senior Public Housing.

White supremacists at Capitol siege? Woman linked to Pelosi’s laptop theft just the latest example

Earlier this week, as part of his campaign to gaslight the public about the Capitol insurrection, Tucker Carlson tried to claim on his Fox News program that “there’s no evidence white supremacists were responsible for what happened on Jan. 6. That’s a lie.” Of course, the claim was immediately debunked, but that hasn’t prevented Republicans from continuing to lie and mislead the public into believing up is down about the event and its meaning, and for online trolls to continue repeating Carlson’s claim. Multiple examples abound to prove Carlson a baldfaced liar, but the most striking was revealed this week: An investigation by Bellingcat’s Robert Evans found that Riley Williams, the 22-year-old woman from Pennsylvania who faces multiple charges in the Capitol siege and is suspected of having stolen Nancy Pelosi’s laptop, is the same person who posed in neo-Nazi gear in an online video and made Nazi salutes, all while posting on social media as a white nationalist “Groyper” and participating in a popular neo-Nazi Telegram channel.

Report confirms: Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi murdered on orders of Mohammed bin Salman

After a last-minute delay, and something of a stutter step in which Friday’s release appeared to be momentarily posted, then withdrawn, then posted again, the truth about the U.S. intelligence assessment of journalist Jamal Khashoggi is finally public. And that truth is evidence on the very first line of the brief document’s executive summary. “We assess that Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman approved an operation in Istanbul to capture or kill Saudi Journalist Jamal Khashoggi.” Since that operation including sending someone with a bone saw, and a body double to wear Khashoggi’s clothes around Istanbul after his death, there can be little doubt that the actual intention of the squad that bin Salman sent to Istanbul was to capture, followed by definitely kill. Following this release, it’s been announced that the Treasury Department will seek sanctions against the former head of Saudi intelligence, Gen. Ahmed al-Asiri, and against members of the Saudi Rapid Intervention Force (RIF) who were involved in the assassination. However, it also seems that if anything is going to happen to the man who instigated, ordered, and paid for this murder, it’s not going to happen today. Because there are no plans to sanction bin Salman. But that doesn’t mean there will be no consequences.

Voting Rights Roundup: Kentucky GOP defies red-state trend and advances bill to expand voting access

Leading Off ● Kentucky: In defiance of the trend sweeping the nation of Republican legislators in a number of states advancing new voting restrictions in the wake of the 2020 elections, Kentucky's heavily Republican state House has almost unanimously voted to approve a bipartisan compromise bill that adopts several provisions to expand voting access along with some limited new voting restrictions. The bill includes measures to: Establish three days of in-person early voting; Authorize counties to set up «vote centers» where any voter in the county may cast their ballot instead of just at traditional local polling places; Allow absentee ballot drop boxes; Notify voters and let them fix problems with their absentee ballot signatures; Allow voters to request absentee ballots online; Require routine audits of election results; Mandate that new voting machines produce a paper trail record; and Ban voters from collecting and submitting an absentee ballot on behalf of another voter, with limited exceptions for family members, election officials, and postal workers.
