"Free estimate today. 1110, delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton is leading an effort to change the rules and give the mayor of the district control over the D.C. National Guard.

National Guard, Norton rules committee chair, Carolyn maloney of New York and Maryland and congressman Anthony Brown announced today they filed an amendment to the 2023 national defense authorization act. The change would give D.C.'s mayor the same authority of the D.C. National Guard that state and territory governors have over their guards.

"There's a line we're going to play a moment from the confirmation hearing, but Mark, there's a line in that commercial that of the film was probably drilled into my cerebellum more than any other phrase. And when it's when justice Thomas says, I would rather die than to withdraw from this process. Yes. And there is no question that there's not a scintilla of doubt in the listener's ear that he meant that. He meant that he did not care about getting on the Supreme Court at that point. But he was not going to surrender to the facts. No, that's what I mean. He was not going to withdraw. He said, I don't run from bullies. I've never run from bullies. I'm not going to start running from bullies now. And that is just as Thomas entire life, including when he was in these in the Reagan administration. And he was getting attacked by the left, but he's also battling some folks in the Reagan administration. Justice Thomas was going to listen to people and then he was going to do what he thought was right. He's got this great line, actually. This is the kind of stuff in the book that's not in the movie because just in fact, he talks about going up to when he was the EOC chairman. They had 60 oversight hearings. At the eeoc, he had equal employment opportunity commission. Justice Thomas, it was a completely broken agency when he took it over. It was wrong by Eleanor Holmes Norton. It was a disaster, right? He comes in and he cleans it up, even The Washington Post says that he got it running, okay? That's what his job is to do, not to do these virtue signaling, you know, joke of settlements,

Norton pushes Washington DC Union Station redevelopment funding as a priority for Congress

"Eleanor Holmes Norton wants redeveloping and expanding Union station to be a priority for Congress. The union station expansion project is estimated to cost between 5.8 and $7.5 billion and Norton says Congress should put aside funding for it when considering the upcoming build back better infrastructure plan. The plan is estimated to have about $1 trillion for transportation projects and letters. Transportation Secretary Pete Buddha Judge Norton said that since Union Station is federally owned, and President Joe Biden has emphasized the need for greater investment in high speed rail that the project should be considered for funding in the plan. The union station revamp includes plans for new platforms, a new parking garage, a new bus facility and new retail and office space. Valerie Bonked

Bill is back to make Washington, DC 51st state — still faces high hurdle in Senate

"The license plates for D C. Residents read in big, bold letters and taxation without representation. It's a rallying cry against D. C is the lack of direct voting power in the U. S. Congress as NPR's Barbara Sprint reports. Statehood advocates are hopeful that what was once seen as a liberal pipe dream is now gaining traction. 30 years ago, delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton first introduced a bill for Washington D. C. Statehood. She's back at it, and this time, she says, it feels different. We've gotten off of the wish list, too. On approach of a new reality. Norton says she's encouraged by national polls that suggest growing support for statehood and the record number of co sponsors. The House legislation and its Senate counterpart, have Her bill, which strength the size of the federal district and admit the remaining area as the nation's 51st state. But Republicans stand universally opposed, arguing it would take a constitutional amendment to admit D. C as a state. Here's Georgia Congressman Jody Hice during today's House oversight hearing, the Democratic Party attempting a political power grab of obtaining more senators, that's entirely what this is all about. That phrase power grab is a constant and GOP messaging on statehood, referring to the fact that the district votes overwhelmingly for Democrats and would likely elect two Democratic senators. But Norton tells NPR that at its core statehood is not about politics while we're looking for is equality with other Americans, especially since we pay the highest federal taxes per capita in the United States, she notes that D C has a population of over 700,000 residents larger than Wyoming and Vermont. Last year when the House first past Norton's bill, Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, dismissed that point. Wyoming is a well rounded working class state. New state of Washington would not be. It was a barb that stung many residents in the district, including business owner Deana Dorsey Calloway. You can't see me, but I'm having an emotional reaction. The eyes are watering probably hear my voice quivering of it, because Just it's disgusting. It's you're a sure of an entire population of people here in Washington, advocates argue statehood is also a civil rights issue, as most of DC's residents are minorities. We do believe this is one of the most important racial justice fights of our time that stash a Rhodes, campaign manager of 51 for 51, a statehood campaign from our perspective, leaving 700,000 mostly black and brown residents without a vote in Congress is racism. D C. Residents pay federal taxes and serve in the military but have no voting Congress. This is an injustice and honestly a stain on American democracy. Norton's bill is all but guaranteed passage in the House. There's broad support from Democrats in the Senate and the White House. But there's a road block. The Senate has a big brick wall in front of its called the Filibusters that house bills are passing and slamming right into. That's Ellie's up Nick of Fix our Senate, a campaign focused on eliminating the legislative filibuster, which requires a 60 senator threshold to advance most bills. Not all Senate Democrats are on board with eliminating the maneuver, arguing it's meant to protect the minority party. But unless that brick wall is eliminated or changed, D C statehood goes back to being on the Democratic wish list.

Washington, DC Statehood Bill Introduced By Senate Democrats

"Now you know this has been on the wish list of democrats for quite some time along with a promoting of puerto rico to statehood as well. Now that's compensation for a different time. But you had senator tom carper. He's democrat out of delaware leading over three dozen of his democrat colleagues to introduce companion bill for washington dc statehood gesture on tuesday. Now remember a similar. Bill passed the house last year. Now will face well pretty much. A democrat controlled senate to determine if dc will become the fifty first state but is that even possible. Well i found this piece. I pulled this back in early january out of the washington post. And it's pretty indepth piece about dc statehood. Bottom line is these. Dc statehood still faces a number of high hurdles not only in the narrowly divided senate but yes in public opinion as well. Think about this. A two thousand nine thousand nine gallup poll found that nearly two-thirds of us opposed dc statehood. So why is in dc already a state. well we need to look at the constitution washington. Dc's founding is enshrined in the constitution which provides that the district not exceeding the constitution. Not exceeding ten miles. Square would become the seat of the government of the united states now for a brief period of time after the city's creation back in seventeen ninety residents -joyed voting rights and were allowed to cast ballots as residents of maryland or virginia but those rights ended shortly after congress moved into town and the new capital in eighteen hundred and pass the district of columbia organic act of eighteen. O one the act stripped dc residents of their rights to vote in all federal elections including for president and gave congress oversight of the city. Have you ever seen a dc washing a plate license plate. You know what it says you know with. The slogan is taxation without representation. Now the district was not afforded presidential electors until the passage of the twenty-third amendment. Back in one thousand. Nine hundred sixty one. Its residents didn't get a non voting delegates in the house until nineteen seventy so begs the question. How can congress change this well. Those opposed to making dc estate have argued that statehood for dc can't happen without a constitutional amendment. They say that the founders intended the entire district to serve as the seat of federal government not as state but legislation put forth by non voting delegate. Eleanor holmes norton every year since nineteen ninety-one would not eliminate the seat of government that the constitution calls for in stead her bill which shrink the national capital to a small complex of federal buildings while allowing the rest of the district to become a state proponents of statehood for their part argue that this plan preserves federal enclave. Whose only requirement is that. It can't exceed ten square miles and escapes the need for a constitutional amendment. Nothing simple as that outstanding questions remain over. What would happen to the three electoral college votes. Currently afforded to the district when it becomes a smaller that role enclave. And some have wondered whether the twenty-third amendment would have to be repealed. So that the few residents of the federal enclave namely we're talking about those residing at sixteen hundred pennsylvania avenue don't retain them so what needs to happen for dc to become state. Well the bill to make these estate obviously has enough supports in the house to pass again and jordi leader steny hoyer pledged to bring it to vote with backing from speaker. Nancy pelosi by your indeed even though the senate is pretty evenly split. Well let's just say it's a tough road to hoe in the senate democrats occupy half the seats in that chambers. Thanks to the victories of ossoff and wore knock In georgia both of whom support would no surprise there. And then you've got vice president. Kamala harris in this fifty fifty split in the senate able to cast the tie breaking boat and she liked biden supports

B. I. the headline on the fox news website FBI Colin Hey love their Collins noose found in Bubba Wallace's NASCAR garage was there since last year since last year the FBI determined that a noose found in a NASCAR NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace's garage at Talladega superspeedway on Sunday had been there since at least last year according to the federal bureau of investigation a statement issued by U. S. attorney Jay E. town said that the investigation that concluded that no federal crime was committed the statement reads the FBI learned about garage number four where the noose was found they call it a noose was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week the investigation also revealed evidence including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR that the news out of the garage number four was in that garage as early as October two thousand nineteen they keep calling it news although the news is now known to have been in garage number for two thousand nineteen nobody could have known Mr Wallace would be assigned garage number for last week well unless they have Sybil the soothsayer during the day no news placing a garage assigning further details were not immediately released the FBI said no charges would be pursued in relation to the incident the FBI has completed its investigation at Talladega superspeedway it's not just a speed right it's a superspeedway and determined that Bubba Wallace was not the target of a hate crime how about white people were kill all we spot but is that a hate crime when somebody spray painted kill all weeds we know what they meant you know I I'm pretty sure they met but they can't spell because LA public school system has been run by Democrats for so long that no one can spell anymore illiteracy is really the order of the day in fact you know a lot of people in America they like misspelling things they misspelled movie titles and song titles and and then we raise our children thinking that this is going to be good for them that was a mistake so the FBI is completed there is no hate crime NASCAR said in a release after the findings the FBI report concludes and photographic evidence confirms that the garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose had been positioned there since early last fall again if it's a nuisance it is a sufficient maybe for a house cat or Adam Schiff and beyond that I'm not sure that you'd be able to get around any any actual next what was the only full time African American driver on the circuit apparently some part time drivers on the circuit had become a target for some critics of NASCAR in recent weeks as the face of the series response to the current social justice movement taking place across the country and its decision to ban the Confederate flag from its events okay you know there it is the internet's car family showed support for him in the wake of the discovery of the news with all fellow drivers and their crews standing behind him in pit lane before that geico five hundred they got another pro ball out of the thing geico does and good insurance at a fair price and I got to get this because I think it used to be that government employee insurance company and then it got so gigantic because the government cruise so much like Astrid anybody can anybody can join and on on Monday as the invocation was given at the national anthem played so the pre race deal was probably one of the hardest things I've ever had to witness in my life an emotional Bubba Wallace said after the race and it was emotional about it and and all this stuff now no he said I I think there's a great opportunity for Bubba to design a new garage door pull I suspect that it will involve a rope with a loop on the end comes from Canada maybe have a big job but really if you want to use one or two fingers to yank the garage door down you you might want to put a loop on it and and that yeah I've seen the pictures you've probably seen the pictures and all that now with that step let's go to what the this story is by CBS sports CBSSports Gabriel Fernandez typed it up Bubba Wallace explains how he heard of noose found in his garage reacts to FBI investigation of the story begins hours after the FBI ABS NASCAR revealed that Bubba Wallace was not subjected to hate crime when a noose was found in his garage prior to Sunday's Cup series race at Talladega the driver of the number forty three and has the black lives matter wraparound it appeared on CNN for an interview with host don lemon asked about now I mean here's let let let me start at the beginning here because Wallace said that I I how did you find out about the news and and he was telling about it and he said the NASCAR president Steve Phelps the president of NASCAR asked to meet with him in person about a very serious matter and when the it says when he eventually did meet with the driver I I don't you know who cares about the backstory that helps the president of NASCAR broke down in tears while informing Wallace about the noose that'd been found Wallace also mention felt saying something about I hate crime all right so the present of NASCAR get bit because there is crying and that's correct and and everybody's cry N. as cards are really a weepy of service how much with a moonshine runners of yester year that there do you know about baby shoes of of NASCAR and outlets with that let's go to him so he got a call he didn't he's like I I didn't know anything about it the the president NASCAR call them and and started crying like a little girl and said there's a noose in your and that's it I mean look he's the only black guy NASCAR if true as James Clyburn likes to say if true that that would be a you know a a very real thing okay who would do something like that what kind of rectal aperture would do something like that and it turns out the answer is nobody which is good news and then.

That's immoral Democrats. Of course, have never been against walls of all kinds of their their walls. And they are this technology, and there are many ways to make sure that our country. In fact, has barriers on a lot of talking joy past each other. When we use words like walls because that means they concrete structure that says none of you are welcome here. And that's part of the problem. We're having in the in the congress today, and we don't have a president who can bring us together. So that we're all talking about the same thing for goodness sake. Yeah. And now play you the vice President Mike Pence who had some things to say we know that tomorrow, Dr Martin Luther King's national holiday here. Is what Mike Pence had to say about Donald Trump and king's legacy? The hearts and minds of the American people are thinking a lot about it being the weekend where we remember the life and work of the Reverend Dr Martin Luther King junior. One of my favorite quotes from Dr king was now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. You think of how he changed America? He inspired us to change through the legislative process to become a more perfect union. That's exactly what President Trump is calling on the congress to do. Well. Wow. You're thought it was it was on point until they got to the Trump part. Of course, because we would ask the president to do just that we ought to be glorifying, and what king indeed accomplished fifty years ago, he indeed lead the country to three civil rights acts even the district. I represent didn't have any self government. And didn't have anybody like me to represent them in congress. And now we're going for vote on statehood. So we've got to remember on king's birthday the progress. We've made at the same time we can't allow vice-president Pence to get away with cleansing. The president and Martin Luther King's. I'm not Martin Luther King's birthday. Yeah. Particularly after look, look what happened at Charlottesville. What does Mark Penn say what what is president Pence said about the president equating the anti-semites and the racists who walked to Charlottesville by saying there was of course, on both sides of fault. What what does the president say about that? What does he say about Steve king and the congress? The body which is, sir. Where the president I said not one word to say. And I'm pleased that my counterparts Republicans joined us a a resolution to condemn Steve king who praised white nationalism. So Martin Luther King's birthday..
