01) Capitalism Hits Home: Why do 38% of Americans support Donald Trump? – Part 1


“In this part 1 of 2, Dr. Fraad takes on the question of why so many Americans still support Trump. Donald Trump has shown himself to be utterly incapable of helping Americans to recover from the CoronaVirus Pandemic . Americans are 5% of the world’s people and we have fully 25% of the world’s Covid victims. We have less testing of Americans than all the other nations have did for their people. The nations of Europe, such as Taiwan, China, Scandinavia, Vietnam,Singapore, and Cuba- nations rich and poor have protected their citizens and eradicated Covid infections. They do not have massive unemployment.”

Abstract

This article seeks to explain the emergence of a new field of study oriented toward sex laws and sexuality rights in comparative and global perspectives. We argue that this field comes into focus because of three changes in the social context: the introductions of sexuality into sex, of human rights into national laws, and of global into comparative perspectives. Each turn of the social kaleidoscope generates new objects of and rationales for scholarly analysis, along with new ways and reasons to think about existing objects of analysis. Together, these contextual changes inaugurate the global study of sexuality rights and invigorate the comparative study of sex laws. Theoretical shifts accompany the empirical developments. Phenomenological approaches arise alongside their realist counterparts. The consolidation of this new field of study is important not only on academic grounds: It suggests the dynamics of a wider field of policy and practice.”

01) AOC Speaks Truth About Postal Service


“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez speaks the truth about what’s going on with the US postal service.

The United States Postal Service will pause its cost-cutting policies after the recent moves sparked controversy and intensified fears that such measures might undermine the US elections this November.

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy said Tuesday in a statement that “to avoid even the appearance of any impact on election mail, I am suspending these initiatives until after the election is concluded.”

DeJoy’s announcement comes as changes to USPS’s operations faced increasing pressure from lawmakers, particularly Democrats, and voting-rights groups and the public, which are happening against the backdrop of President Donald Trump waging a campaign against mail-in voting.

01) USPS Ex-Honcho FLAMES Trump


“Trump and DeJoy are destroying American democracy.

In his first public remarks since resigning from the U.S. Postal Service Board of Governors in protest at the end of April, David Williams on Thursday offered a number of alarming new details surrounding the selection of Trump megadonor Louis DeJoy as postmaster general and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s efforts to exert influence over mail operations and finances.

Williams, the former vice chairman of the USPS Board of Governors with decades of federal government experience, testified to the Congressional Progressive Caucus that what he witnessed in his final months at the Postal Service was unprecedented, detailing how Mnuchin required members of the supposedly independent board to “come to his office to kiss the ring and receive his blessing before confirmation” and made “illegal” demands of officials.

“Jared Kushner cheers over 170,000 American deaths from coronavirus.

Even as public schools across Mississippi reported hundreds of new COVID-19 cases among students and teachers, dozens more schools opened up today. In Hinds County, Gov. Tate Reeves arrived for his press conference today and immediately launched into a discussion of the latest news.

“Good afternoon. Thank you all for being here today,” the governor began, moments after removing his deep-red mask with the words “Make America Great Again” embroidered across it in white. “I know it was just announced the University of Florida is scheduled to play at Ole Miss on Sept. 26 and that Mississippi State is scheduled to play at LSU on the same day. I know a lot of people in our state are very interested in college football happening, and I’m very interested in college football happening.
