A vote to confirm Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court is a vote to take health care away from millions of Americans and to rewind the progress of women’s rights in this country by decades.

Police officers not charged for killing Breonna Taylor

These charges are an affront to the movement for justice and peace in this country and conveys loud and clear that Breonna Taylor’s life does not matter to the legal system of the United States.

Bill Barr comparing the sale of human beings to public health professionals trying to save lives is abhorrent but consistent with Trump's desire to stoke racial tension in this country.

Despite their efforts, we will come together.

Court Rules Government Can End Humanitarian Protections For Some 300,000 Immigrants

Absolutely irresponsible and dangerous. The unnecessary deportation of 300,000 family members, neighbors, and co-workers in the middle of a pandemic will help the spread of COVID-19.

Critics say ending temporary protected status for people from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan will devastate families and communities, especially during the coronavirus pandemic.

Whistleblower Alleges 'Medical Neglect,' Questionable Hysterectomies Of ICE Detainees

Giving detained women hysterectomies without any reason or even proper anesthesia is not simply medical malpractice -- it is a human rights abuse and a crime against humanity.

Democratic lawmakers and immigration advocacy groups are calling for the Department of Homeland Security's inspector general to investigate the claims, centered on conditions at a facility in Georgia.

I’m thankful and relieved that the two L.A. County sheriff's deputies that were senselessly shot over the weekend are expected to recover.

The tape is absolutely horrendous to watch. Violence like this is never acceptable.

Woodward book: Trump says he knew coronavirus was ‘deadly’ and worse than the flu while intentionally misleading Americans

Donald Trump knew COVID-19 was dangerous.
He knew it was contagious.
He knew it was airborne.
He knew it was deadly.

He just didn't care.

The first job of the Commander in Chief is to protecting and defending the United States.

He failed.

In new book ‘Rage,’ Trump says he deliberately played down threat of pandemic and says he feels no responsibility to better understand the anger and pain of Black Americans.

Opinion | People of color are disproportionately affected by covid-19. Yet they are underrepresented in vaccine trials.

Six months into our battle against COVID-19, the disease has killed more than 181,000 Americans, and the pandemic continues to disproportionately affect communities of color. Black Americans, Latinos, Asian Pacific Islanders and Native Americans are significantly more likely than white Americans to be diagnosed with COVID-19, be hospitalized over it and die of the disease.

Despite these appalling trends, the most promising covid-19 vaccine trials are reportedly failing to recruit participants of color.

Vaccines must be effective for everyone — including those most at risk.

Los Angeles Sheriff Deputies Shoot, Kill Black Man After Stopping Him for Alleged Bicycle Riding Code Violations

What bike violation is so severe that they needed to stop Dijon Kizzee?

What bike violation is so severe that they needed to chase him?

What bike violation is so severe that they needed to shoot him as many times as they did?

If he dropped a weapon, why was he then shot?

It’s shootings like this one, like the one that took the life of Andres Guardado, and like the ones that have taken the lives of so many others, that have resulted in Angelenos organizing a Sheriff Civilian Oversight Commission with subpoena power.

The people are fed up. Enough.

Family members at the scene identified the dead man as 29-year-old Dijon Kizzee

Tom Berryhill was a friend and colleague from the other side of the aisle who was always committed to improving the quality of life of all Californians. When we served together in Sacramento, we were charged with closing a $40 billion deficit. Tom understood that there were going to be no good solutions for either side and put the good of the state over the political pressure of the time, which showed his courage and also his decency. My thoughts are with Tom’s family during this challenging time.

Chadwick Boseman brought Black legends, both of this world and beyond, to life for generations to come.

The characters he played allowed America to see Black people on the silver screen in positive roles — we saw the strength of Jackie Robinson and the brilliance of Thurgood Marshall.

In Black Panther, we saw the first major film about a Black superhero.

The movie depicted beautiful images of Black people as strong and brilliant and the continent of Africa was portrayed in all its beauty, opportunity and power. Black people around the world were inspired and celebrated the movie.

Rest in power Chadwick Boseman.

'Catastrophe' or 'new era'? Mail shake-up at L.A. public housing complex alarms residents

Making the decision to force hundreds of my constituents to go to new designated locations for their mail in the middle of a pandemic is absolutely unacceptable.

I am in contact with both the post office and the Housing Authority working to get to the bottom of these changes.

Mail would no longer be delivered to residents' doors at Mar Vista Gardens under a new plan. Officials say it would keep letter carriers safer, but residents are skeptical.

On Friday, Trayford Pellerin was shot 11 times by police after he walked away from them and tried to enter a gas station store.

On Sunday, Jacob Blake was shot in the back 7 times by police after he walked away from them and tried to enter his car with his kids in it.

Trayford has passed. Jacob is fighting for his life.

60 days ago, we passed legislation to make it easier to prosecute police misconduct and to remove bad actors from departments while also investing in our communities.

The Senate and the White House could act TOMORROW.

We can transform our system.

We must.

Congresswoman Bass, thank you for your leadership. I wanted Joe Biden to pick you. However, Kamala Harris is a great choice. I won't vote twice; but I will help get out the vote. However, on Nov. 4th, no matter how the election turned out the day before, I will rise. Do you have a list of things that would serve me and others well -- no matter what happens on election day?
When will you speak out about Nancy Pelosi's WHITE PRIVILEGE; how she was able to get her hair done when all salons in San Francisco have been closed down for 5 months. When all of us working stiffs can't even get our bangs trimmed, but her WHITE PRIVILEGE allows her a private appt. Will you speak out about it OR will your remain silent because she is a Democrat? Which is it??????

Civil Action No. 1:19-cv-03781-CKK/ABJ William P. Barr, U.S. Attorney General 950 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W. Washington D.C. 20530 And, JESSIE K. LIU, U.S. Attorney for The District of Columbia 501 Third Street, N.W. Washington D.C. 20001 Defendants. et al,. _________________________________________ RECUSAL OF JUDGE COLLEEN KOLLAR-KOTELLY AND DEFENDANT NEVER RESPONDENT TO APRIL 10, 2020, ORDER BY JUDGE AMY BERMAN JACKSON’s ___________________________________________________ The defendant never responded to Judge Army Berman Jackson’s orders of April 10, 2020, to Plaintiff’s motions, if they did as mentioned by Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly’s Order of April 14, 2020, then the plaintiff never received any responds from the defendants. The only notice received from defendant is “NOTICE OF SUBSTITUTION OF COUNSIL”. Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly order of July 02, 2019, and Denial of Docket Entry No 07, in Civil No. 18-cv-02339-CKK are evidence in Initial conference Demand and Jury Trial in Civil No. 1: 19-cv-03781-ABJ. The Judge also knows very well that in Akube W. Ndoromo v. William P. Barr Civ. No. 18-02339-CKK, Docket Entry No. 07, facts in black and white about defendant’s stealing of funds, bank robberies, properties robberies and court’s error of setting the criminals free and locking up the victim, was denied by Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly. That denial was made to dismiss the case as of July 02, 2019. The Judge wrote eight pages respond based on defendants liars and courts error of siding with violators. The Judge also complain that she/he couldn’t understand plaintiffs motion , and that is why initial conference is better for the evidence to speak for itself and is another reason for recusal. Title: 28 U.S.C. Section 455 (a) (b) (1) (d) (1) (2) (3). A judge should respect and comply with the law and should act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary. A judge should not allow family, social, political, financial, or other relationships to influence judicial conduct or judgment. A judge should neither lend the prestige of the judicial office to advance the private interests of the judge or others nor convey or permit others to convey the impression that they are in a special position to influence the judge. A judge should not testify voluntarily as a character witness. The duties of judicial office take precedence over all other activities. The judge should perform those duties with respect for others, and should not engage in behavior that is harassing, abusive, prejudiced, or biased. The judge should adhere to the following standard. A judge should be faithful to, and maintain professional competence in, the law and should not be swayed by partisan interests, public clamor, or fear of criticism. A judge should hear and decide matters assigned, unless disqualified, and should maintain order and decorum in all judicial proceedings. A judge should be patient, dignified, respectful, and courteous to litigants, jurors, witnesses, lawyers, and others with whom the judge deals in an official capacity. A judge should require similar conduct by those subject to the judge’s control, including lawyers to the extent consistent with their role in the adversary process. WHEREFORE, regulations must be reasonable and consistent with law. Regulations must conform to law when law exists upon subject. See Phelps v. Siegfried, (1892) 142 US 602, 35 Led 1128, 12 S.Ct. 179; International R.Co. v. Davidson (1922) 257 US 506, 341, 42 S.Ct. 179. Hawk v. Olsen. Supra, 326 U.S. at 276, when error, in relation to the federal question of constitution violation, creeps into record, the Court have the responsibility to review the proceedings. IN-conclusion; Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, must disqualify herself/himself in this proceedings being a witness and making up responds without the defendants actual responded or the plaintiff never received defends respond. And July 02, 2019, explains how the Judge supported violators, stealing of funds, bank robberies, properties robberies, shutting down small business and she/he will not be different in this related case, also she/he can’t be a Judge and witness at this same time period.

Good Afternoon Congessmember Karen Bass!!! Just wanted to say that I am sorry you did not get chosen for MVP by JB...but I am glad you are still my Congressmember....at least until you move on to Other Places!!!✌
Karen Bass is looking for REPAIR - putting back the blue collection boxes, sorting machines that handle 40k items per hour... Even carriers panels (used to sort mail further, then pull down the route in order) have been reduced to one each according to carriers posting to the union page. The ONLY think that makes sense so far is to Reduce Overtime - ANY biz owner would agree (although USPS is NOT a biz). The SOLUTION for no OT is a mathematical one: Hire enough people to cover carriers during a pandemic AND to deal with all of the packages which takes extra time... PMG DeJoy is raising prices for Commercial Shippers during the holiday season (Amazon? The 10 Top Companies that contract with usps?) Who will they ship with then? And what is the transportation LDJ says he will have ready in October? NAME of the Transportation Companies and owners and investors? Karen Bass, thank you for all you do! Just learned your Dad was a carrier:) - From another Karen (Marie) LOL
