Meanwhile, a republican representative from florida fully lost it at alexandria, ocasio cortez, calling her quote bitch on the capitol steps and, lastly, twitter announced that it would be cracking down on cue and non conspiracy accounts on its service. You know what they say better three years late than never you’re listening to majority dot, fm’s am quickie, and these are the stories you need to know. Music. The u.s logged 1000 coronavirus deaths in a day for the first time in july on tuesday that’s, a long way from the peak of new york city epidemic, which pushed the country to a staggering 2752 deaths in a day. But now the increasing wave of death is nationwide not confined to a few hot spots. The rising death toll and sinking poll numbers prompted a slightly different press conference from trump today, where he admitted that quote. It will probably, unfortunately, get worse before it gets better. End quote: he also urged everyone to get a mask. Clearly, someone has realized that if he continued his current path of denial and disruption, there’s no way he stands a chance in november, but though creditless commentators claimed once again that trump was taking on a new, more somber tone. He had just been ranting on twitter about the china virus, michael flynn and mail in voting.

They may have calmed him down for one presser, but please don’t be fooled by the new act. All of this is happening as the american working class is about to get slammed.

The expanded unemployment benefits passed as part of the coronavirus relief package are set to expire at the end of july, just over a week away according to the new york times. That means more than 20 million americans could see their weekly income fall by half or more new york. Representative alexandria, ocasio cortez weathered a shockingly blatant and vulgar attack from a colleague on tuesday after republican ted yoho accosted. Her on the capitol building steps yoho in typical republican fashion, took issue with aoc’s accurate analysis that systemic causes like poverty and unemployment might be driving a rising crime wave in new york city. According to the hill, which first reported, the exchange yoho told aoc, she was quote disgusting and then said quote you are out of your freaking mind. End quote: aoc told him. He was being rude in the two parted ways, but, as yoho was walking away, the hill reports that he said quote bitch the epithet wasn’t said directly to aoc, but it’s pretty clear who it was describing yoho is now trying to spin the thing, of course, with A spokesperson saying that he used a barnyard epithet to describe her policies, not her sure i’m sure that’s what he meant. The confrontation is shocking in its sexism, of course, but even outside the context of a spat between two professional politicians, it’s telling, if correctly analyzing, the systemic roots of crime gets republicans.

So riled up it’s, pretty clear that their party has zero desire to change things.

For the people that crime actually affects instead, like every other problem, their solution is to throw more cops at it. For the past two months, we’ve been seeing in real time how that goes: Music majority dot fm’s am quickie, is fueled by just coffee, dot, co, op, just coffee is a worker owned coffee, roaster based in madison wisconsin.

The platform banned 7 000 q anon accounts and restricted 150 000 others. This, according to nbc news. Most of the outright bans came down on accounts that had violated twitter’s harassment policies or their policies against using multiple accounts to evade suspensions. The big step is that the platform will stop recommending q anon accounts to users who follow similar accounts, that’s a big step in stopping these accounts from spreading to users and limiting the reach of the conspiracy and it’s. Frankly, shocking it’s taken twitter. This long to do it, but hey q anon, has been around only since 2017, so it’s only had about almost three years to spread unchecked around the internet better late than never, i guess, and now for some quicker cookies quicker quickie.

The justice department accused two chinese hackers of trying to steal coronavirus vaccine research data on behalf of their government. The doj’s complaint notes that this is part of a years, long effort to steal, u.s technology, but there’s, no question that the story fits very conveniently into the trump administration’s efforts to scapegoat china for our own country’s, terrible pandemic response and then there’s. That other question of. Maybe we should just share the vaccine. Ohio house of representative speaker, larry householder and four of his close associates and colleagues were arrested on tuesday after a bribery investigation involving a one billion dollar nuclear bailout plan and dark money. Payments to a shell company set up by the speaker, philhan omar’s primary challenger anton melton mo, has some extremely weird spending habits, namely that nearly 65 of his campaign spending has gone to three strange anonymous companies. That means it’s very difficult to tell who’s actually being paid by the campaign, as the anonymous companies could be paying out to basically anyone and lastly, the trump administration is still attempting to use the 2020 census to crack down on immigrants and undocumented people. By introducing a provision that would mean undocumented people are not counted. This, of course, goes against the constitution, which explicitly states that all people in the country at the time of the census, not citizens, be counted folks. The majority report will be off today and we may in fact be off again tomorrow, not sure, still mourning the loss of our colleague and friend, comrade michael brooks.

Yesterday we did a four hour stream in which we talked about michael. We encourage you to check that out and to go back and look over some of michael’s best moments on the show also check out.
