It’s Sunday and the weekend has come to an end. Below are a few articles and events we might have missed but are worthy of discussion. And in case you missed the Sunday shows, we got you covered. Please feel free to add your own headlines we might have missed.

The Biden Administration:

  • President Joe Biden on Saturday said his administration would make an announcement on Saudi Arabia on Monday, following a U.S. intelligence report that found Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had approved the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Congress:

  • Senior Democrats explore tax largely hitting Fortune 1000 companies not paying $15 an hour:
  • The idiot from Bakersfield opens his yap; let’s not let this happen. #MakeKevinHomeless!

White ISIS/MAGAts/Wing Nuts:

  • ‘Three percenters’ truck at Capitol belongs to husband of congresswoman who said, ‘Hitler got one thing right:’
  • Rep. Paul A. Gosar (R-Ariz.) said Saturday that he opposed “white racism,” hours after speaking at a far-right conference whose organizer spoke approvingly of the Capitol insurrection while delivering a white-nationalist speech.
  • “I want to tell you, I denounce . . . white racism,” Gosar said during a panel at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “That’s not appropriate.”

Voter Suppression:

  • Why Republicans Are Moving To Fix Elections That Weren’t Broken:
  • As Republican state lawmakers around the nation are working furiously to enact laws making it harder to vote, the Supreme Court on Tuesday will hear its most important election case in almost a decade, one that will determine what sort of judicial scrutiny those restrictions will face.
  • The case centers on a crucial remaining provision of the Voting Rights Act, which prohibits voting practices that discriminate on the basis of race. Civil rights groups are nervous that the court, now with a six-justice conservative majority, will use the opportunity to render that provision, Section 2, toothless.
