Facing Eviction (full documentary) PBS, FRONTLINE

Why have American families struggled to keep their homes during the COVID pandemic, despite a federal eviction moratorium? We investigate in a new documentary with Retro Report.

Filmed over the course of a year during the COVID-19 pandemic, “Facing Eviction” follows people and families across the country who struggled to remain housed as COVID upended the economy. The documentary examines how federal pandemic housing protections — including a temporary ban on evictions and a massive rental assistance program — played out in the experiences of people living through this precarious time: from tenants and landlords to lawyers, judges and the law enforcement officers carrying out evictions.

“Facing Eviction” was produced with support from The WNET Group’s Chasing the Dream initiative. The documentary is a FRONTLINE production with Retro Report. The producer and writer is Bonnie Bertram. The co-producers are Anne Checler and Erik German. The associate producer is Emily Orr. The senior producers are Nina Chaudry and Frank Koughan. The executive producer of Retro Report is Kyra Darnton. The executive producer of FRONTLINE is Raney Aronson-Rath.

“Facing Eviction” premiered Tuesday, July 26, 2022, at PBS and online.

If you were Covid positive and wearing a mask that mask

Wasn't protecting just you. As a matter of fact, since you were infected, it wasn't protection for you at all. It was, however, protection for all of those who you were breathing around all day.

That's the beauty of the mask. It gives us the opportunity to show how much we care for humanity and how we are interested in possibly saving them from Covid, long, short, severe and mild.

So, stopping the spread is what the mask is really for and not just to protect our already double vaxxed, double boosted selves.

I think about the children mostly because they are not able to decide to vax themselves and are at the mercy of the so called adults in their orbit. They are potentially victims and vectors. That we don't care more about them is simultaneously sad and infuriating to me. But that's just me. YMMV. ❤

Read Inside Trump '25


A radical plan for Trump’s second term

Jonathan Swan

Jul 22, 2022 - Politics & Policy


Former President Trump’s top allies are preparing to radically reshape the federal government if he is re-elected, purging potentially thousands of civil servants and filling career posts with loyalists to him and his "America First” ideology, people involved in the discussions tell Axios.

The impact could go well beyond typical conservative targets such as the Environmental Protection Agency and the Internal Revenue Service. Trump allies are working on plans that would potentially strip layers at the Justice Department — including the FBI, and reaching into national security, intelligence, the State Department and the Pentagon, sources close to the former president say.

During his presidency, Trump often complained about what he called “the deep state.”
The heart of the plan is derived from an executive order known as “Schedule F,” developed and refined in secret over most of the second half of Trump’s term and launched 13 days before the 2020 election.

The reporting for this series draws on extensive interviews over a period of more than three months with more than two dozen people close to the former president, and others who have firsthand knowledge of the work underway to prepare for a potential second term. Most spoke on condition of anonymity to describe sensitive planning and avoid Trump’s ire.



This is a must read for the serious political junkie. If you think GOTV is the pinnacle of political engagement and all we need to win the future, you might want to sit down and read this, after you prep your nitroglycerin pills.

While some are guffawing at Josh Hawley and posting memes, Trumpworld is amassing an expansive, exceptionally well funded, political machine, ready to take over the United States Government as soon as they retake the White House.

This read is a comprehensive and eye-opening education. The type you might not want to get, but you probably should.

Zoroastrians confront depletion of their ancient faith

Zoroastrians confront depletion of their ancient faith
July 1, 2022

NEW YORK (AP) — Among the world’s present-day religions, Zoroastrianism, founded more than 3,000 years ago, is one of the most ancient and historically influential. Yet even though its adherents maintain vibrant communities on four continents, they acknowledge their numbers are dauntingly small — perhaps 125,000 worldwide.

Starting Friday, about 1,200 attendees from 16 countries will be assessing their faith’s prospects during the four-day World Zoroastrian Congress in New York City, the first one held in the United States since 2000.

The agenda reflects a keen awareness of the challenges facing their religion. Prospects for growth are limited, given that Zoroastrians don’t seek to convert outsiders and — in many cases — don’t consider the children of mixed marriages to be members of the faith. Yet there’s also some cause for optimism.

“Have we ever been in a time like this?” wondered Arzan Sam Wadia, a Mumbai-born, New York-based architect who is co-chair of the congress.

Here's what happens now State by State...Abortion Rights


Here Is a State-by-State Rundown of What Will Happen Now That SCOTUS Has Freed Lawmakers To Restrict Abortion
Most states are unlikely to enact bans, but 22 either have them already or probably will soon.
JACOB SULLUM | 6.24.2022 10:25 AM


North Carolina

New restrictions are unlikely in the short term. Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat serving his second term, supports abortion rights. Republicans control both houses of the state legislature, but they do not have veto-proof majorities.

Time to start the Abortion Underground!
