In other news, Politico reports that Democrats intend to aggressively market and advertise the Build Back Better Act to the public and make it the center of midterm elections.
Meanwhile, the FDA has now approved the use of vaccine booster shots in all adults over the age of 18.
Finally, a jury found Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty for traveling across state lines and killing protestors.
Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes, who is Black and a Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, denounced the outcome.
“Over the last few weeks, many dreaded the outcome we just witnessed,” Barnes said. “The presumption of innocence until proven guilty is what we should expect from our judicial system, but that standard is not always applied equally. We have seen so many black and brown youth killed, only to be put on trial posthumously, while the innocence of Kyle Rittenhouse was virtually demanded by the judge.”
I have nothing to add to the above statement.
Programming note... there hasn't been much happening lately in any case and Congress is leaving Washington for the Thanksgiving holiday after punting on renewal of the NDAA so I will also be taking a break next week. I'm responsible for cooking Thanksgiving dinner this year and I have a lot of chores to do preparing for it. Hopefully we'll have more to discuss after the holiday. I wish you all a safe and happy Thanksgiving in the meantime.
