With so much going on in our world, we sometimes miss important issues. Please feel free to share any headlines or new developments we may have missed providing they come from reliable and credible sources.  In other words, please do not post any missed headlines form far right ‘news’ sources or regurgitate their Russian propaganda unless you’re trying to point out that the far-right extremist in our country and elsewhere actually believe their own BS or Russian disinformation.   The same applies to what is currently happening in Israel. We also ask that you provide a link to your source so folks can read it if they want. Please do not make any claims that you cannot factually validate or verify.

President Biden/Biden Administration:

President Biden Visits the Site of the Trump Trainwreck, New Palestine (Better Change Your Name), Ohio:

President Biden visited the small Ohio town of East Palestine on Friday, a little more than a year after a Norfolk Southern train derailed there and spilled hazardous chemicals.

After meeting with local officials and getting a briefing from the Environmental Protection Agency, Biden promised residents that the U.S. government would fulfill its obligation and remain in the area until the clean-up efforts were complete.

He praised the community’s courage and resilience. He insisted the derailment will not define them. And he blasted Norfolk Southern for not taking proper precautions with its dangerous cargo.

The MAGAts Out In Full Force:

***This MAGAt has it ALLLLLL figured out! Yep, President Biden shut down a steel plant. Guess he succeeded seizing steel plants/mills where President Truman failed (Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer, 343 U.S. 579 (1952))

Cleveland-Cliffs to shutter West Virginia tin plant and lay off 900 after tariff ruling

 Cleveland-Cliffs announced Thursday that it is shutting down a northern West Virginia tin production facility indefinitely and plans to lay off 900 workers after the International Trade Commission voted against imposing tariffs on tin imports.

The trade commission ruled earlier this year that no anti-dumping and countervailing duties will be imposed on tin products from Canada, China and Germany because those imports do not sufficiently harm the U.S. steel industry. The U.S. Department of Commerce had determined those products were sold in the United States at less than fair value and subsidized by the Chinese government.

The trade commission also voted to stop a duty investigation into tin products shipped from South Korea.

Texas governor building military ‘base camp’ near border to deter migrants

Texas is building a military “base camp” in the city of Eagle Pass near the U.S.-Mexico border, part of a broader effort by the state’s Republican governor to deter illegal immigration.

The facility – dubbed Forward Operating Base Eagle – will be an 80-acre complex along the banks of the Rio Grande and house up to 1,800 troops, with the ability to expand to 2,300, Governor Greg Abbott said at a press conference.
