Weaponization of Nuclear Civilian Sites as Dangerous as Nuclear Bomb Threats, Diplomacy Needed Immediately Even though the power is back on, Europe's largest nuclear power plant, Zaporizhzhya, which is surrounded by Russian troops, has lost all external power for safety systems twice in five days. Russian nearby shelling and troop ineptness around the plant are at fault.

Biden's Court Report Took Reform Nowhere, Congress Must Act to Avoid Clear Politics and Restore Support for the Court So far this year, as conservatives are funneling another 1.6 billion dollars to Leonard Leo on his conservative judicial nominee list campaign, simply electing Democrats is not enough.

Late Night Comics Undermine Suffering of Ukrainian and Russian People As comedians make jokes about Putin's regime, it is easy for individuals who live thousands of miles away from Ukraine and Russia to make ill-fitting jokes about the suffering both Russian and Ukrainian people face while dealing with thousands of deaths, decimated cities, millions of displacements citizens, military rapes, and tortures of real war.

Why is Harvard Report Getting All the Press When the White House, the Capitol, and Stone Mountain Were Built on Slavery Instead of focusing on Harvard's report, it is essential for our country to realize how racism and slavery were used to create the White House, Capitol, and Stone Mountain. The White House and Capitol could take a page from Monticello to work harder to honor Black individuals who built these historical sites and invite their descendants to events as honored guests.

Recent Congress, Media Sensationalizing UFO "Sightings" Defuses Real Work When "Objects" Likely Not Extraterrestrial The press ignores that UFOs are likely foreign spy satellites or asteroids of varied shapes. The "flashes of light" are likely sunlight reflections. The media and congress are pandering on the unproven instead of focusing on future missions to the moon and Mars. NASA and the press should quit pandering to UFO thrill seekers and consider UFOs as serious security threats to our country.

Don't Be Fooled--"Good Guy with Gun" Doesn't Work Despite Recent Outlier Although a lone gunman in Greenwood, Indiana, Elisjsha Dicken, was able to take down an active shooter on July 17, this instance of a "good guy with a gun" neutralizing a dangerous shooter is extremely rare. Comedian Jordan Klepper demonstrates in his comedy segment that the NRA's theory that a "good guy with a gun" could stop a potential active shooter is not only rare, but baseless, by the numbers.

Catholic Church Abuse of Pelosi's Religion Should be Condemned Though she is not the first and will likely not be the last politician to receive this treatment from the Church, Pelosi made sure to point out the hypocrisy of San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone, saying that she is "opposed to" the death penalty, and "so is the church, but they take no actions against people who may not share their view." That is only the tip of the iceberg.

Russia, Parents, Drug Questions Facing Future Olympics; Beijing Issues Remain The IOC has complete control and final say on how the Olympics are run. The COVID restrictions mostly worked. However, they learned important lessons and must do more to celebrate. We assume and hope that the reason for the Ukrainian-war suspension is only temporary and that peace will come soon. The Olympics will be better if they learn from the recent questions and experiences.

Get It Done! Go for Individual Victories on Child Credit, Drugs, Climate, Home Care, Pre-K, College... Democrats find themselves in an ever-shorter window of time; less than a year before off-year elections with a two-week Easter break and both months of August and October dedicated to district work. This makes passing Build Back Better untenable if not outright impossible with obstructionists like Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) to interfere in the Democratic efforts.
