Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., was the key obstacle to reaching a deal this week on passing both the Democratic infrastructure bill that passed the Senate last month and the broader bill to address climate change and provide $3.5 trillion over 10 years for a vast range of spending that would impact the lives of poor and middle-income people. As a result, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushed back the House infrastructure vote, suggesting it might come on Friday. (At publication time, that had not yet happened.) Progressives in the House so far have held fast against passing the infrastructure bill — which they support — without also getting the Senate, including Manchin, to approve the broader bill, with the measures that Biden campaigned on. That bill would create universal pre-K, saving the average family an estimated $13,000 annually; lower the costs of some child care; give free school meals to 9 million children; add dental, eye and hearing coverage to Medicare; lower costs for Obamacare enrollees; lower drug prices; invest in climate-change measures that would reduce carbon emissions, lower energy bills, create thousands of conservation jobs, and mitigate wildfires; and fund both school repairs and construction of new schools." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

He was 84. "General Colin L. Powell, former U.S. Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, passed away this morning due to complications from Covid 19," the Powell family wrote on Facebook, noting he was fully vaccinated. A source familiar with the matter said Powell had multiple myeloma, a cancer of plasma cells that suppresses the body's immune response. Even if fully vaccinated against Covid-19, those who are immunocompromised are at greater risk from the virus." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Most elected Republicans have simply chosen to ignore him, dodging questions about the chaos Trump incited on Capitol Hill. But Trump’s attempts to steer the entire party apparatus into questioning the integrity of U.S. election systems could cost Republicans at the ballot box. In Georgia, for example, Trump’s lies about fraud suppressed voter turnout among Republican voters and helped cost his party Georga’s two U.S. Senate seats, as well as GOP control of the Senate, according to Georgia’s Republican secretary of state. Trump has already made substantial headway in endorsing candidates across the country who are willing to embrace his rhetoric about election fraud. A Trump-imposed litmus test on the validity of the 2020 election would solidify his grip on the party as he toys with the idea of running for president again. It would also create headaches for Republicans seeking to keep media attention on the Biden administration.” #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

During the "Take Back Virginia Rally" in Henrico County, Martha Boneta, the Republican host of the event, called someone to the stage who was carrying an American flag that was reportedly present at what was referred to as the "peaceful rally with Donald J. Trump" on January 6. The Republican referred to the January 6 insurrection as "peaceful" despite it resulting in the deaths of five people and a number of suspects being charged with violent offenses including assaulting police officers. Boneta then asked the crowd to stand up, while those on stage turned and faced the flag to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Youngkin was not present at the rally held in his honor, but did feature a phone call of support from Donald Trump, whom he called a "great gentleman.” #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) would face an uphill battle against several potential primary challengers, according to a new survey from the progressive polling firm Data for Progress. The poll of likely Democratic primary voters in Arizona tested Sinema in hypothetical match-ups with four potential challengers: Rep. Ruben Gallego, Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, Rep. Greg Stanton and Tucson Mayor Regina Romero. In a five-way race, the poll found, Ruben Gallego would beat out Sinema, 23 percent to 19 percent. Stanton, meanwhile, garnered 13 percent in the five-way match-up, while both Kate Gallego and Romero notched 9 percent support each. In a scenario in which Ruben Gallego emerged as Sinema’s sole primary challenger, he would garner 62 percent of the vote to Sinema’s 23 percent, according to the poll. Similarly, Kate Gallego would beat Sinema 60 percent to 25 percent in a head-to-head match-up, Stanton would win 59 percent to 24 percent and Romero would lead Sinema 55 percent to 25 percent, the Data for Progress poll found. The survey, which was conducted from Oct. 8 to 10, underscores the growing frustration with Sinema among the Democratic base over her opposition to key parts of her party’s legislative priorities. She’s one of two Senate Democrats holding up a $3.5 trillion social policy and climate change bill that lies at the center of President Biden’s agenda. That frustration reached a boiling point earlier this month as Democratic activists began laying the groundwork for a potential primary challenge to Sinema, who’s not up for reelection until 2024. One such effort, a political action committee called Primary Sinema, has said that it will raise money for grassroots groups that could recruit a primary challenger in the coming years. Another campaign is seeking to draft Ruben Gallego into the 2024 race." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

The order states that "no entity in Texas" can enforce vaccination against anyone in the state who objects "for any reason of personal conscience, based on a religious belief, or for medical reasons, including prior recovery from COVID-19," according to a news release from the governor's office. "The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and our best defense against the virus, but should remain voluntary and never forced," Abbott said in a statement. Abbott also called on the Texas state Legislature to pass a law with the same effect. The executive order would be rescinded upon the passage of such legislation, the governor's office said.” #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

We're not talking about the classic, original-recipe Clark Kent/Kal-El Superman that's been around since the June 1938 issue of Action Comics #1 first hit the stands. It's not the Superman who's infiltrated the global zeitgeist to become a part of our collective consciousness via comics, serials, radio, television, film, toys, roller coasters and the bedsheets I got for Christmas 1979. No, it's his son, Jonathan Kent. Whose precise backstory in the comics has been so ruthlessly pummeled by a series of reboots, retcons, space missions, time-travel and rapid aging as to render it so incomprehensible that it sends even diehards like me scurrying to the nearest wiki.”

Carlson, in particular, has been extremely outspoken against government and business mandates, even as Fox Corp. itself has instituted a much stricter policy than what the Biden administration is requiring for private-sector employers. In a speech last week defending his vaccine mandates, Biden noted that more and more large businesses are now mandating that their employees get vaccinated. At the same time, he erroneously said that “Fox News requires vaccinations for all their employees.” While Fox has boasted that over 90 percent of its staffers are vaccinated, it is not requiring all its employees to get the shot. Instead, the company is requiring daily testing for those who refuse to get the jab or haven’t revealed their vaccination status. “As a factual matter, what Joe Biden just said is completely untrue. It is a lie, period,” Carlson said Monday night of Biden’s remarks. “We can say that with authority since we work here.” After claiming that Fox News was “alone among big media outlets” in terms of defending “this country’s most basic civil liberties,” Carlson then seemed offended by the suggestion that his nightly rants against the COVID vaccine and pandemic restrictions aren’t authentic. “To cynical authoritarians like Joe Biden and the ghouls around him, like Susan Rice, that just can’t be genuine,” he grumbled. “They assume the people you see on Fox News must be pretending, pretending for money or prestige or ratings or something else.” “But they are wrong,” Carlson dramatically concluded. “We are not pretending at all. It’s real.”” #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

"The contributions that Indigenous peoples have made throughout history — in public service, entrepreneurship, scholarship, the arts, and countless other fields — are integral to our Nation, our culture, and our society," Biden wrote in the proclamation Friday. "Today, we acknowledge the significant sacrifices made by Native peoples to this country — and recognize their many ongoing contributions to our Nation." Biden also marked a change of course from previous administrations in his proclamation marking Columbus Day, which honors the explorer Christopher Columbus. In that proclamation, the President acknowledged the death and destruction wrought on native communities after Columbus journeyed to North America in the late 1500s, ushering in an age of European exploration of the Western Hemisphere. "Today, we also acknowledge the painful history of wrongs and atrocities that many European explorers inflicted on Tribal Nations and Indigenous communities. It is a measure of our greatness as a Nation that we do not seek to bury these shameful episodes of our past — that we face them honestly, we bring them to the light, and we do all we can to address them," Biden wrote.” #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

The two teamed up to give the keynote address at the Chamber of Commerce meeting, and what ensued was a fascinating conversation that, at its core, was about the future of education and trust in the American institution. Kasparian is a progressive pundit, Shapiro a conservative one, and while in many ways they agree on the problems facing America, their ideas for how to address those problems are substantially opposed. Both look to history for an understanding of human nature and what we're capable of, and what changes could be made to better life moving forward. For Kasparian, this is exemplified by the pandemic, which showed workers that the work/life balance didn't have to be a total slog." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Scott Perry at the center of efforts to help former President Donald Trump overturn the 2020 election results, urging other congressional investigators to further probe his involvement in the runup to the Jan. 6 insurrection. In the last weeks of Trump's administration, according to the new Senate Judiciary Committee majority report, the former president asked Richard Donoghue — then the Justice Department’s second-in-command — for his cell number so lawmakers concerned about the election could call him. Perry (R-Pa.) was one of the lawmakers who ended up with the principal associate deputy attorney general’s phone number." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) said Monday that its members voted 98 percent to 2 percent to allow union president Matthew D. Loeb to call for a work stoppage, though the group will attempt to return to the bargaining table before actually striking. The union represents more than 60,000 set builders, costume designers, video engineers and other behind-the-scenes workers." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks
