Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers Reaction on Jacob Blake Shot, Read Here

Governor Tony Evers Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers Reaction on Jacob Blake Shot, Read Here Tonight, Jacob Blake was shot in the back multiple times, in broad daylight, in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Kathy and I join his family, friends, and neighbors in hoping earnestly that he will not succumb to his injuries. While we do not have all of the details yet, what we know for certain is that he is not the first Black man or person to have been shot or injured or mercilessly killed at the hands of individuals in law enforcement in our state or our country. We stand with all those who have and continue to demand justice, equity, and accountability for Black lives in our country—lives like those of George Floyd, of Breonna Taylor, Tony Robinson, Dontre Hamilton, Ernest Lacy, and Sylville Smith. And we stand against excessive use of force and immediate escalation when engaging with Black Wisconsinites. I have said all along that although we must offer our empathy, equally important

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer CoronaVirus Briefing

Gretchen Whitmer Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer CoronaVirus Briefing Yesterday, I presented the 6 phases of the MI Safe Start Plan to re-engage our economy due to the #COVID19 pandemic. Let’s break it down 👇 We have made progress in the fight against COVID-19 in Michigan because of every person who did their part. Thank you. That being said, our critical workers have put their lives on the line to save lives, and we owe it to them to do whatever we can to stop the spread of the virus. We know the importance of getting our economy moving again. But we have to be smart, because the worst thing we could do is open up in a way that causes a second wave, puts health care workers at further risk, and wipes out all the progress we’ve made. So, here’s the plan: we are going to evaluate where the state and each of its regions are across six phases of this epidemic: 1. Uncontrolled growth 2. Persistent spread 3. Flattening 4. Improving 5.

Marianne Williamson Latest News

Marianne Williamson Latest News I’m not normally the kind of person who posts pictures of my food, as anyone who knows me would attest. But what I’ll start doing now is posting pictures of where I am. I’m hunkered down with a dear friend whose apartment I happened to be visiting when the coronavirus craziness exploded a few days ago. I had been planning to fly back to Des Moines to pack up for a move to DC, but now such travel is on hold as we all know. Meanwhile, my friend is someone I have known for over 30 years, a godfather to my daughter, and he has generously suggested I remain at his place for now. He is an interior designer and his home is beautiful. He has such an eye for beauty that even a bowl of tomatoes at his house looks like a work of art to me. But it’s more than that going on now, of course. I’m feeling the same things everyone else is feeling, and deeply aware that not everyone has the support of friends and family where they are now, much less are in a beau

Canada PM Justin Trudeau Latest Update on Covid-19

Canada PM Justin Trudeau Latest Update on Covid-19 As COVID-19 continues to spread, we are taking every precaution to minimize the health, economic, and social impacts of the virus in Canada. And today, we announced a billion-dollar COVID-19 Response Fund to address the impacts of the virus on our country and to keep you safe. This fund will provide money to the provinces and territories to support our health care system. That’s more money for surgical masks, face shields, testing, and equipment they need to address the outbreak. It will also help fund vaccine development and support clinical trials. On the economic front, we know the virus is having a disruptive impact on businesses, and on workers. No one should have to worry about their job if they have to be quarantined, and no employer should feel like they have to lay off a worker because of COVID-19. So to support workers, we will waive the mandatory one-week waiting period for Employment Insurance sickness benefi

Marianne Williamson Congratulates Joe Biden For His Win in Primaries 2020

Marianne Williamson Congratulates Joe Biden For His Win in Primaries Maybe it’s because I’ve been through so much sadness in my life, but I’m not going to let tonight get me down. I’ve known how this game works from very early in the process. I know because I was there. The same group that was gathered around Anderson Cooper on CNN tonight was gathered around me after the second debate, and I saw the look in some of their eyes. Believe me, kids, I know how it works. But Joe himself is a very nice man. He was lovely whenever he saw me on the campaign trail, and his wife is great. A wonderful woman. I am very, very disappointed tonight, but my disappointment is nothing compared to that of tens of millions of young people who have got to be feeling far more loss than I. I wish I could talk to every one of them and say, “Don’t worry, this is just a moment in time.” This too shall pass. Progressives in our history have had bigger setbacks than this. And this moment will give way to

Pete Buttigieg at South Bend, Indiana HAPPENING NOW: Pete Buttigieg expected to announce suspension of his 2020 presidential campaign in remarks to supporters in South Bend, Indiana. To chants of "USA! USA!," Pete and Chasten Buttigieg greet each other ahead of Pete Buttigieg's expected announcement that he is suspending his 2020 campaign, ending an historic bid by the first openly gay man to seek the presidency.By every conventional wisdom, by every historical measure, we were never supposed to get anywhere at all...Along that way, an improbable hope became an undeniable reality. We found countless Americans ready to support a middle-class millennial mayor from the industrial Midwest, not in spite of that experience but because of it, eager to get Washington to start working like our best-run communities. We sent a message to every kid out there wondering if whatever marks them out as different means they are somehow destined to be less than...Someone who once fel
