As we approach the weekend, the breaking news stories keep coming. They really started yesterday, with news about the COVID booster shot. Then the leaks of the Arizona election fraudit draft report which is set for release about an hour before showtime today. What we do know is that Joe Biden, indeed, won Arizona. And it only cost the taxpayers SIX MILLION DOLLARS for that result.
And Trump is still lying.
Then there are the House votes on everything from codifying Roe v Wade to the National Defense Authorization Act and sending Israel another billion dollars for their iron dome missile defense system. And more.
Oh, and the run up to Monday’s scheduled vote on the BIF or hard infrastructure bill, while the reconciliation package-which is supposed to go hand-in-hand with the BIF- is nowhere ready for a vote. There’s more, and we’ll review some of it.
We’ll wrap up the week with another visit from White House correspondent Brian Karem. He was the WH correspondent for Playboy, but Playboy is gone. Who knew? He’s now penning a weekly column for Salon. com, and continues hosting his own podcast, Just Ask the Question . Yesterday marked one year since the former guy took a question from Brian in the WH briefing room. Karem asked “Regardless of the outcome, will you guarantee a peaceful transition of power?” The rest, as they say, is history.
Brian’s forthcoming book, Free the Press: The Death of American Journalism and How to Revive It will be out this fall. It’s available for pre-order now!
