Entretanto, Em Washington

O Capitólio é invadido por encapuzados, na sequência de uma manifestação convocada por um Trump em delírio e a fazer tudo para travar a confirmação dos votos do Colégio Eleitoral que confirmam Biden como novo Presidente. No dia em que as eleições na Geórgia tiraram o controlo do Senado aos Republicanos.

A resposta de Biden que, lamento muito que exista que ache que são todos iguais, é alguém de uma cepa muito diferente do arruaceiro do Twitter.

Easing Teachers’ Anxieties About Returning to School

Teachers Are Already Getting COVID-19 Vaccines

(…) The Knox County health department in Indiana began vaccinating educators on Dec. 28, even though the state’s vaccine distribution plan is still in Phase 1A, which prioritizes health-care workers and residents of long-term care facilities. The state has said teachers will be in Phase 1B of the distribution plan.

O Regresso Da Censura A Céu Aberto?

Não chegava a encoberta?

É que quem concordar com este tipo de “bloqueios” ou “objecções” fica com pouca margem de manobra para condenar outras…

The school district of Burbank, California, is embroiled in a bitter debate about book banning. The books in questions are about racism, and black parents are complaining that the books are racist. Among the books that parents want removed are: Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, one of the most censored books in American literature; Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird; Mildred D. Taylor’s Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.

I wrote a book about censorship of language on tests and in textbooks and of books used in school. It is called The Language Police. I recommend it to anyone wanting to know more about the history of these practices.

Trumpices

The abrupt withdrawal overnight is a blow to the president’s efforts to overturn the result of the vote in court,

  • State and federal officials confirm no evidence of voter fraud
  • Trump continues to refuse to accept defeat by Joe Biden

Finalmente!

Joe Biden will become the 46th US president, CNN projects, after a victory in his native Pennsylvania puts the Democrat over 270

The U.S. election proves that this divisive style of politics is still viable.

It should not take the largest voter turnout in U.S. history to guarantee that a president rejected by the majority of the American people actually stops being president.

A narrow Biden victory offers four years of gridlock—and that’s the best-case scenario.

The President has survived one impeachment, twenty-six accusations of sexual misconduct, and an estimated four thousand lawsuits. That run of good luck may well end, perhaps brutally, if Joe Biden wins.
