Breaking Scoops

President Biden should declare a national emergency on the climate crisis. Donald Trump declared some fake emergency for his ineffective, wasteful wall. That wasn't an emergency. If there was ever an emergency, the climate crisis is an emergency.

McConnell folded. There was no new information. There have been a number of Senators who have said they would not vote to end the filibuster, much earlier than today. That’s just a fig leaf for McConnell folding. Schumer held his ground. Good start.

When I started out in the New York State Assembly, I never expected to be here. As Senate Majority Leader, I'll work my heart out to get things done for Americans across the country. From my interview with @maddow :

We will work to pass the THRIVE Agenda to fight climate change, create millions of jobs in renewable energy, and invest in Black, Hispanic, and Indigenous communities. #TimeToTHRIVE 

I proudly cast my vote tonight to confirm @JanetYellen  as the first woman to serve as Treasury Secretary. Her extensive experience and thoughtful leadership is much needed at @USTreasury  during this time of unprecedented economic crisis.

Not in our piece, but since it published, two people in touch with him described him as “bored out of his mind.”

McConnell’s caving is a victory, but no cause for complacency. This organizing resolution is only the first test. Bigger ones lie ahead & McConnell’s quest to regain control is unchanged.

Scoops of the Day

I object to this unconstitutional sham of an “impeachment” trial and I will force a vote on whether the Senate can hold a trial of a private citizen.

Today my colleagues and I reintroduced a constitutional amendment to impose #TermLimits  on Members of Congress. The amendment would limit U.S. senators to two six-year terms and members of the U.S. House of Representatives to three two-year terms.

Twenty-dollar bill going from Andrew Jackson to Harriet Tubman — one symbol of difference between Trump and Biden. Proposed new design below:

It’s long past time for congressional #TermLimits .    RT if you agree!

A manager of the Keystone XL pipeline says hundreds of workers have already been laid off because of @JoeBiden 's halt on the pipeline's construction.

I’m glad that two Senate Democrats confirmed today they will not vote to end the legislative filibuster. They agree with President Biden and me on protecting the Senate.   With this win, we can move forward with a 50-50 power-sharing agreement built on the 2001 precedent.

The American people are saying to Congress: We elected you. Do something. If Democrats do not respond to their pain now, Republicans will win in 2022.

Republicans should reject any process that involves a partisan Democrat in the chair instead of the Chief Justice.

Biden's will sign a “Buy American” EO today meant to boost federal agencies’ purchases of U.S. products. New policy will make it harder for federal officials to obtain waivers to purchase products from overseas, @Jordanfabian  reports.

Scoops of the Week

The #FBI  needs your help identifying individuals who instigated violence on January 6 in Washington, D.C. Visit to see images from current cases, and if you see someone you recognize, submit a tip at . #SeekingInfoSaturday  @FBIWFO

MILITARY SOURCE IN DC: “For the last week my battalion has been sleeping on the floor in the Senate cafeteria. Today the Senate kicked us out & moved us to a cold parking garage. 5000 soldiers. 1 power outlet. One bathroom. This is how Joe Biden’s America treats solders.” PHOTOS

Now Hawley is claiming that he “was never attempting to overturn the election” and was merely “representing my constituents.” Does Hawley think Americans are gullible and stupid? They are not, and most people can see through phonies.

Folks, this is not complicated. Without accountability, the next coup will succeed.

In 1994, Democrats in power lost big because they were not bold. In 2010, it happened again. If we do not take aggressive action NOW to protect working families, it will happen in 2022.

I’m waiting for Pres Biden to condemn violence/looting/arson last two days in Oregon & Washington state

Hank Aaron was one of the best baseball players we’ve ever seen and one of the strongest people I’ve ever met. Michelle and I send our thoughts and prayers to the Aaron family and everyone who was inspired by this unassuming man and his towering example.
