"Today to stand by two Republican lawmakers who have polarized the party voting to retain Congresswoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming as their number three leader and saying they'd fight a democratic push to kick Georgia representative Marjorie Taylor Green off her committees. And a 145 to 61 vote by secret ballot. House Republicans overwhelmingly Reebok to rebellion by hard right pro trump conservatives to cost Cheney over her vote last month to impeach then President Donald Trump. Minority leader Kevin McCarthy will kill Democrats for slighting a house vote tomorrow that would remove green from her two house committees, dismissing bipartisan demands that the hard right Georgia Republican be punished. Her online embrace of racist and violent abuse, including violence against Democrats and bizarre conspiracy theories. Justina Honest, ed reports. Tensions are high at the U. S Capitol, where Democrats are attempting to take swift action against Republicans who have incited or advocated violence against them. From impeaching former President Donald Trump to removing a new member of Congress. Marjorie Green from her assigned committees. The ladder was the subject of a House Rules committee hears committee chair Democrat Jim McGovern of Massachusetts. We have never had a hearing like this one before. That's for two reasons. The first reason is that we have never had a member like this before. She's encouraged violence against members of this institution. Only so far as agreeing with the comment that advocated for putting a bullet in the head of the speaker of the House of Representatives. That was part part of a larger pattern of endorsing violence. This is truly sick stuff. Green has also called school shootings staged specifically the sandy Hook Elementary school shooting that killed 20 Children and six educators. And the high school shooting and Parkland, Florida that killed 14 teens and three adults. She's also embraced the conspiracy theory that California's deadly wildfires were sparked from an outer space laser financed by Jews. That's why Democrats are wanting to remove green from the education and Budget Committee's Republicans have appointed her to California Congresswoman Norma Torres gave a lengthy speech at the House Rules Committee about Green. There's a couple of excerpts anyone who tarnishes the memory of the Children, the Children who died at Sandy Hook. Saying the massacre was staged is not fit to serve on any any house committee. Anyone? Who chases a child chases a child, a survivor. Of the Parkland, shooting, belittling a child and calling them cowards. While videotaping the exchange does not deserve to crap policy on the committee that determines how to educate and keep our Children safe. And I take issue with anyone who disrespects Californian lives. Last by promoting hate against our Jewish friends and neighbors, claiming that the wild fires were started by Jewish space lasers. Republicans, though, are largely opposing Democrats disciplinary attempts. While they've been quick to condemn greens, conspiracy theories and comments, they're slow to do anything about them. House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy slammed Greens comments but calls Democrats move a partisan power grab. Others say it sets a dangerous precedent. Like Tom Cole of Oklahoma and Jackie will or ski of Indiana. Want to be very clear at the outset that I find Congresswoman Greens comments deeply offensive, However, the action the majority is taking today raises questions that have nothing to do with congresswoman dream as one of the freshmen members and new to Congress. You know, it really does seem to me that this would be setting a new president and one that I think could be very dangerous. It's a precedent where the majority party Can punish a member of the minority party by removing them from their committee assignments. And and I really don't believe that this president is in the best interest of the body, much like the impeachment of Donald Trump. Republicans condemned him for inciting a mob of supporters to attack the capital on January 6th, but only 10 Republicans in the House voted to impeach him over it. And one of them. Wyoming's Liz Cheney now faces backlash within her own party. It's one example of the growing rift between Republicans as the party struggles to define itself amongst different factions in an era of Donald Trump. Fake news. Republican Adam Kinzinger has started a political action committee to steer the party away from Trump and his loyalists like Green. The Republican Party's conflict is also a parent to Democrats from across the aisle. Ah came Jeffries is chairman of the Democratic Caucus rhetoric has been characterized as Loney. Crazy, wacky dangerous by Senate Republicans. That House Democrats by Senate Republicans. This is not a partisan issue about precedent that may be established if we're compelled to act to address the situation that Kevin McCarthy should address himself. The House Republican Conference appears to have been taken over by the conspiracy caucus, the Crackpot Caucus and the Cuban on caucus at the same time. Clearly there are Senate Republicans concerned with that situation. America should be concerned with that situation, But it's not just the rift Democrats are concerned about its their own safety in the wake of the Capitol siege, and Republicans are refusing to speak to it. Democrats say they're taking action against Green because Republicans are refusing to and have left them no choice. Democratic controlled House of Representatives is set to vote on removing green from the education and budget committees Thursday. I'm Christina Honest Ed reporting for KPFK. Russian authorities arrested more than 1400 people in nationwide protests against the 2.5 year prison sentence handed down to opposition activists, Alexey Navalny yesterday.

"13,512 new infections were reported in the last 24 hours. And 224 more deaths and all. Los Angeles County has more than 840,000 Corona virus infections and at this rate is slated to hit a million before the end of the month. In weeks more than 11,000 Angelenos have died from covert 19. L. A county officials warned the staggering increase of infections will further strain and already beleaguered healthcare system. Hilda So Lisa's chair of L. A county's board of Supervisors, we have over 7600 people in our hospitals from Cove in 19. It is getting harder and harder for health care workers to care for those coming to the hospital with gunshot wounds, heart attacks, strokes and injuries from car accidents. Hospitals are declaring internal disasters and having to open church gyms to serve as hospital units. As hospitals, big research, surprise hospitals and low income in communities in reporting supply shortages like oxygen. Some are getting hit harder than others. Nina's Ponce, a director of U. C L, a Center for Health policy research. Says it's no surprise hospitals and low income in communities of color are slammed with cases since those demographics are more likely to die from Corona virus that affluent white communities. Many of these communities have residents who are essential workers delivering your Amazon product delivering your food grocery workers. These essential workers than tend to be from communities of color and then the others their pockets in Los Angeles, where there's overcrowded housing and multigenerational families, particularly among immigrant communities, pond say, says intergenerational households with essential workers are a ripe mix for covert spread and death. As the elderly are more likely to die from the virus than other age groups. That's why she's calling for vaccine distribution efforts to prioritized intergenerational homes of essential workers. L. A county data says These low income and communities of color are four times more likely to die from covert 19th, an affluent white areas. Meanwhile, in San Francisco County officials are reporting 237 new corona virus infections each day. Latinos are making up the bulk of infections, while only 15% of the city's population. Latinos are nearly 40% of the infection's black and Latinos are disproportionately dying from Corona virus than other races in San Francisco as well. City officials say they vaccinated 6000 frontline health care workers and residents at Laguna Honda Hospitals have also received vaccines, but the data is not yet publicly available. The Bay Area along with most of California remains under a state home order from Governor Gavin Newsom. Statewide. California has reported 31,440 new Corona virus infections in the last 24 hour period. He had 368 more people have died in all. There are more than 2.4 million people with the coronavirus in the state more than 27,000, and that's Christina Honest said. Still more news to come on covert 19, including a look at what's happening internationally. But first this brief update on the Georgia Senate race where the Republicans have pulled to a tiny, razor thin margin with about two thirds of the vote, and David Perdue with 50.6% of the vote, Jon Ossoff's 49.4% and in the other race Republican Kelly Leffler, 50.2% of the vote Rafael Warnock 49.8% of the vote that's with about 66 67% of the vote in will give you enough It again before the end of this newscast. You were listening to the Pacifica Evening News on Kpfk, Berkeley Kpfk Los Angeles. I'm Eileen Alphandery. Still to come and tonight's newscast Some Chicago teachers are refusing to return to their classrooms over coronavirus safety concerns and more arrests of pro democracy activists in Hong Kong, California Governor Gavin Newsom has proposed a $4 billion Bending plan, he says, will create jobs and help small businesses recover from the steep economic downturn brought on by the Corona virus pandemic close to half that amount. 1.5 billion would help people purchase electric cars and build the charging stations necessary for drivers to use them. That proposal is part of Newsome's gold to ban the sale of new gas powered cars in California by 2035. Other elements of the plant. Small businesses would get $575 million grants of up to 25,000 each to small business owners, with priority given to areas and industry's most affected by the pandemic. That money includes about 25 million for small museums and art galleries that have been forced to close during the pandemic. In a normal year. California's budget doesn't take effect until July 1st. But Newsome said he would ask the Legislature to approve the money for small businesses before then, although it's not clear when that would happen. Newsome is set to unveil the overall California state budget proposal on Friday. The new, more infectious strain of the Corona virus has been found in an 18 year old man in Georgia with no travel history. It's the latest indication that the Corona virus variant, first identified in great Britain is likely circulating widely in this country. The new variant has already been sound in California, Colorado, Florida and New York Doctors. Stuart Raise an infectious diseases expert at Johns Hopkins University. He spoke to Kristina Honest Ed about coronavirus mutations, and just how worrisome the new variant is. The more people we have getting infected, the more we're going to see the virus evolve, because that just is what it does that changes over time. This virus doesn't change his fastest flew. For instance, It's about five times slower than flu. However, that's just sort of on a Her infection basis. But here with this virus, we're seeing vast numbers of people infected. And so we're seeing mutations accumulate more rapidly than if we had done a better job of controlling this epidemic. And so in this case, we think that this variant has some features that may make it more transmissible. What this means is that you're more likely to spread it. What it doesn't mean is that you're more likely to get sick, so this variant does not appear to be more lethal. There was some early Worries that maybe it's Fred more easily and Children than previous variance. But that's Fred among Children probably is not different from the increased Fred among adults, So it's simply that is Fred's a rapidly has not been demonstrated to cause failure of the vaccine. It's not thought to be resistant to the treatments that we have available, so right now we may see evolution of this virus if we don't contain spread, and so we need to be cautious on tried to Limits Fred until we can get this thing under control. How concerned should people be? The short answer? I think could be that we should be concerned about this coronavirus. Because what we're seeing with this variant is in amplification of the concern we should have about this epidemic. The variant appears to be more transmissible. People who are infected with this virus seemed to have higher levels of virus and their respiratory secretions. And so It seems to spread more easily. What That means is that when you wear a mask to try to avoid spreading it to others, or when you're wearing a mask to avoid catching it from others, there's more virus that needs to be filtered out. And so it may be able to travel a little farther. It may be able Tioga through a little better for any given prevention. And so we have to be. Especially cautious as this various friends. We've seen reports from Colorado from San Diego County in California from Martin County in Florida, so we know that it's around. And in each of those cases, the people who were found to be infected did not have travel history to suggest that they had brought it there, suggesting that there's actually community spread of this variant in each of those states. Given the way that our public health infrastructure has been defunded over the past few years. I'm not confidence that we have good surveillance in most parts of this country, So it's very likely that this variant is far more widespread than those few reports would suggest. So I think we have to presume that this is in our communities. And we should be taking a special care and not allow pandemic fatigue to cause us to relax at a time when rates are as high as they've been in the whole epidemic, and hospitals are really full with people who have coveted plus people have other.

From K P S. A Berkeley and KPFK Los Angeles. This is the Pacific Evening News. I'm Eileen Alphandery Governor Gavin Newsom announced the state's first known case if they knew more contagious strain of the Corona virus. It's the second reported case in the nation, The first was reported yesterday and Colorado. Newsome made the announcement during a conversation with the nation's top infectious disease specialist, Dr Anthony Fauci. Kristina. Honest, ed reports. The Corona virus mutation or variant, first discovered in the United Kingdom is now in California, Southern California, or hospitals are overflowing with coronavirus patients. And some are having to turn them away or ration care. But the nation's leading infectious disease expert, Dr Anthony Fauci, says it's nothing to panic over. First of all, I'm not surprised that you have Ah case and likely more cases in California, and we likely will be seeing reports from other states. I don't think that the Californians should feel that this is something on Fauci shares. What's known so far about the mutation. The transmissible Lady of this mutant is more efficient than the transmissibility of the standard virus that we've been dealing with up to now, namely it just it's able to bind to the receptors on sells better and therefore is transmitted better. There's no indication at all that it increases the virulent standby, very alliance. I mean, the ability to make you sick or kill you. It doesn't seem to make it more strong in that regard. In addition, it doesn't seem to evade the protection that Supported by the antibodies that are induced by vaccines. The other thing that they've noted in the UK is that people who have been infected don't seem to get re infected by this, which means that the immunity that's given to you when you get infected is protective against this particular strain, but the virus said to be more contagious hits California at a perilous time. As daily deaths reaching unprecedented 432. California remains the first and only state to surpass two million people with infections. Nearly 25,000 people have died. More than 40% of the infections are in Los Angeles County, the hardest hit, which just topped 10,000 deaths. The new covert 19 variant has triggered a host of questions about how the mutation circulating in England arrived in the US and whether it's too late to stop it with top experts like found she saying it's probably already spreading elsewhere across the country. The first confirmed case was in Colorado in the National Guardsmen in his twenties who has not traveled. Officials say he had mild symptoms and his isolating his home near Denver, while another guard member also has a suspected case. They were both sent to a nursing home. Struggling with an outbreak last week. Well, two strains of the Corona virus are in the country. Hope is on the horizon as vaccines rollout. Found, she says current vaccines have a strong likelihood to be effective against the mutated covert 19 strain when you get vaccinated, the immune response that you make is called Polly clonal, which means it's against many different parts of the virus. So even though you have one part of the virus that's changed, it is very likely that the other components of the vaccine induced response will protect you. Statewide transmission rates have also fallen to the point where one Infected person is infecting Just one other person, a development officials call encouraging but warn the trend could reverse from holiday gatherings in the coming weeks. That's why officials are recommending people shelter in place during New Year's Eve and continue following public health orders like mask wearing and social distancing. Some areas are taking tougher action to enforce those orders. Hours after officials announced the new variant in southern California, San Diego's mayor signed an executive order directing stricter enforcement of public health rules, including fines and other actions against those who defy them in conversation with Governor Gavin Newsom. Doctor found, she says Even the HIV AIDS epidemic was not as politicized as the Corona virus pandemic and everybody's full knowledge of your involvement with HIV and AIDS, which certainly had a political component. But you suggest nothing like this, huh? No, not at all. There was the the many respects shameful stigma with AIDS for awhile, particularly among men who have sex with men in this country. There was the lack of paying enough attention to it in the early years. The fact is, they didn't put enough of the bully pulpit of the presidency to warn People that this is a disease. That is not a problem of people. It's a problem of a virus. But other than that, it wasn't anything like the divisiveness that we're seeing right now, which really makes implementation of public health. Measures and public health messaging very difficult. I'm Christina Honest Ed reporting for KPFK, California Governor Gavin Newsom has proposed $2 billion in additional funding to reopen California schools for in person instruction starting as early as February. Newsome said the phased in plan would focus first on the youngest students. Those in transitional kindergarten through grade two and Children with disabilities and foster care or who are homeless or otherwise at.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell today blocked Democrats push for a vote on increasing the individual relief payments from $600 to $2000. Instead, McConnell said the Senate will begin a process to bring the president's demand for $2000 checks and other remaining issues into focus. McConnell tried to set up a vote to override President Trump's veto of this $740 billion military bill. Independent Senator Bernie Sanders objected. Sanders said he blocked action on the veto override until McConnell sets up a vote on the $2000 payments, which the House overwhelmingly approved last night. Last night, the House of Representatives with a two thirds majority 275 to 1 34. Two thirds bi partisan vote moved to increase the direct payment going to working families from $600. Her adult to $2000 per adult. The house did the right thing. I congratulate them, and now it is time for the Senate to step up to the plate. President Trump was tweeting about the fight over the $2000 payment, saying, quote unless Republicans have a death wish, and it is also the right thing to do. They must approve the $2000 payments, Asep $600 is not enough. Trump tweeted. Georgia Republicans Kelly Leffler and David Perdue, who are both in Senate runoff elections next week in Georgia, have said they will support the $2000 payments. But most Republican senators opposed the spending even if they are also wary of bucking Trump, The increased to $2000 would cost nearly half a billion dollars. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer pointed out. Republicans had no trouble spending money when it benefited the wealthy. I don't want to hear that we can't afford it. I don't want to hear that it would add too much to the deficit, Senate Republicans added nearly two trillion to the deficit. Give corporations a massive tax cut. Republicans just fought to include a tax break for three martini lunches in the covert relief bill. So I I don't want to hear it that it cost too much to help working families get a check when they're struggling.
