Trump can't figure out why coronavirus-ravaged America shouldn't open its schools

Impeached coward Donald Trump is unhappy with efforts to kill Grandma, and has his eyes set on the nation’s children. In that vein, he tweeted this yesterday: xIn Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and many other countries, SCHOOLS ARE OPEN WITH NO PROBLEMS. The Dems think it would be bad for them politically if U.S. schools open before the November Election, but is important for the children & families. May cut off funding if not open!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 8, 2020 So how does the United States compare to those countries?

Indiana cops do little after Black man and witnesses report attack from would-be lynch mob

Protests following a disturbing and racist incident partially captured on video have prompted Indiana police to begin an investigation, authorities said Monday. The reported incident involves a Black man from Bloomington who was allegedly pinned to a tree, beaten, and threatened with a “noose” by a group of white men after being accused of trespassing on private property on July 4. Vauhxx Booker, an activist and member of the Monroe County Human Rights Commission, recalled the horrific incident in which he was «almost the victim of an attempted lynching» at the hands of five drunk white men in a Facebook post on July 5. «At one point during the attack one of the men jumped on my neck,» Booker wrote. «I could feel both his feet and his full bodyweight land hard against my neck.»

Trump loses twice in Supreme Court on financial records cases but can keep fighting in lower courts

In two 7-2 decisions written by Chief Justice John Roberts, the Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Donald Trump does not have categorical immunity to withhold his financial records in a criminal investigation, nor can he withhold them from Congress. Both cases were sent back to lower courts for further proceedings, however, and are not immediate victories against Trump. Except for the part where his boys Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh agreed that he's not the king. Ouch. «Presidents from Monroe to Clinton have accepted Marshall’s ruling that the Chief Executive is subject to subpoena and have uniformly agreed to testify when called in criminal proceedings,» Roberts wrote in the Vance case, in which a New York grand jury had subpoenaed his records. Roberts held that the subpoena can be enforced as long as it doesn't interfere with Trump's constitutional duties, meaning Trump will have to come up with an argument other than presidential immunity in the lower court to block the subpoena. «Article II and the Supremacy Clause do not categorically preclude, or require a heightened standard for, the issuance of a state criminal subpoena to a sitting President,» Roberts concluded. The justices also agreed with House Democrats that Congress has the power to subpoena the president's financial records but ruled that the lower courts must «take adequate account of the separation of powers principles at stake, including both the significant legislative interests of Congress and the unique position of the President.» In essence, this punts the matter by sending it back to the lower courts for further consideration. In practice, the decision means that the House is unlikely to get Trump's tax returns before the election. The subpoena processes in both the New York case and Congress' case will continue, but the subpoenas will not be enforced immediately. This will allow Trump to continue to fight, and it will likely mean these records aren't available until he's no longer president. However, it means Trump's claim of absolute executive immunity has been rejected by everyone on the Supreme Court, except Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito.

Multi-Layered Ceramics by Artist Heesoo Lee Express the Movements of Land and Sea

Heesoo Lee has spent years carefully layering blades of grass, pine trees, and cherry blossoms to construct botanic entanglements that crawl across ceramic mugs and bowls. Inspired by seasonal woodlands and aspen forests, the Montana-based artist recreates bright pockets of landscapes that capture small motions, like falling fronds or rustling branches. “There is movement in trees, but it is slow and subtle, a leaf in wind, the slow growth of new leaves in spring,” she says.
