Newsweek: U.S. Issues Terror Advisory Amid Heightened Threat Across Country

The Washington Post: Several dozen of those charged with storming the U.S. Capitol explicitly prepared for violence in the effort to thwart Congress’s confirmation of Joe Biden’s election that day, according to court records.

Washington Post Opinion by Mitch Daniels: The Biden administration’s ‘workarounds’ damage the machinery of democracy – Eschewing “working around” and returning to “working within” would be a step back toward the comity, community and public confidence we now see so little of.

Edward Snowden: It is my belief that market forces, democratic decline, and a toxic obsession with “national security”—a euphemism for state supremacy—are drawing the US and China to meet in the middle: a common extreme.

More Than Our Crimes by Rob Barton (with Pam Bailey): Let’s Be Honest: In America, Some Lives Matter More Than Others – “The conditions in the D.C. jail complex are headline news these days, and I’m having a hard time wrapping my mind around it. Don’t get me wrong; I’m glad any time the conditions of incarceration finally get pubic attention. But the fact that this attention only came because of the complaints of a group of conservative whites thrown into jail for storming our Capitol is so…depressingly predictable.” [Ed. note: Very compelling piece that deserves to be read by everyone!]
