"One of the things I do worry about sometimes among progressives in the United States —maybe it’s true here as well — is a certain kind of rigidity where we say, 'Uh, I’m sorry, this is how it’s going to be,' and then we start sometimes creating what’s called a 'circular firing squad,' where you start shooting at your allies because one of them has strayed from purity on the issues. And when that happens, typically the overall effort and movement weakens," he said.
"So I think whether you are speaking as a citizen or as a political leader or as an organizer … you have to recognize that the way we structure democracy requires you to take into account people who don’t agree with you, and that by definition means you’re not going to get 100 percent of what you want," he added.
Hey @CNN. Any chance you’ll be broadcasting the footage of Macron’s police tear gassing and brutalizing unarmed #YellowVests protesters in Paris for the 20th weekend in a row today? Or you too busy churning out war propaganda on Venezuela? 🤔 #GiletsJaunespic.twitter.com/ksgwND2S5M

Three historically black churches have burned in less than two weeks in one south Louisiana parish, where officials said they had found “suspicious elements” in each case. The officials have not ruled out the possibility of arson, or the possibility that the fires are related.
“There is clearly something happening in this community,” State Fire Marshal H. Browning said in a statement on Thursday. “That is why it is imperative that the citizens of this community be part of our effort to figure out what it is.”

“The administration’s actions here demonstrate a shocking disregard for the Appropriations Clause, which protects Congress’s ‘exclusive power over the federal purse,’” the House says in its lawsuit.
Smollett’s lawyers said Chicago has never recuperated costs against defendants who had charges against them dropped.
The lawyers said that if the city continues with its suit, they will request the “entire investigation file,” including the full discovery that wasn’t given to the defense, and will ask that all records and hearings on the matter be open to the public. Smollett’s records currently are sealed.
Get ready for the anti-Trump “resistance” to go truly loco, because new polling data indicates Hispanic support for the president is swelling, a trend that could seal his 2020 re-election victory.
McLaughlin & Associates revealed that Hispanic approval for Trump in March jumped to 50%. This number matched the January Marist/NPR/PBS survey that shocked cynics with its own 50% approval finding. Even if those polls are too aggressive, February’s Morning Consult/Politico poll showed Trump’s Hispanic approval vaulting to a still-impressive 45%.
The platform was built on the backs of independent creators, but now YouTube is abandoning them for more traditional content. As YouTube battles misinformation catastrophes and discovers new ways people are abusing its system, the company is shifting toward more commercial, advertiser-friendly content at a speed its creator community hasn’t seen before.
The golden age of YouTube — the YouTube of a million different creators all making enough money to support themselves by creating videos about doing what they love — is over.
The infection - a fungus known as Candida auris, kills almost half of all patients who contract it within 90 days, according to the CDC. Why is this happening? Simply put, fungi are evolving defenses to resist and survive modern medications. While various theories exist as to why C. auris has made a grand entrance, Dutch microbiologist Jacques Meis believes the drug-resistant fungi are developing thanks to the heavy use of fungicides on crops.
Images of the Merkel and Obama get-together show them embracing and smiling, while inside the meeting, that lasted more than an hour, Obama at one point pats Merkel on the back.

Yesterday, the pair were believed to have discussed Trans-Atlantic relations during the hour and a half exchange - and Merkel showed her appreciation with a hug and a kiss on Obama's cheek.
Are you sure it had nothing to do with intelligence sharing of SpyGate and the steps needed to cover the tracks?
Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said none of the Democrats running or planning to run for president in 2020 can topple President Trump. “I really don’t think any of them can beat him,” Jordan, who represents a district in the northern central part of the state, said.
Jordan said the Democratic field of 2020 hopefuls have embraced “the craziest positions I have ever seen” in moving the party to the left. So far 13 Democrats are in the race and many support universal healthcare, reparations, and drastic measures to curb climate change...
David Malpass, the Treasury official nominated by U.S. President Donald Trump to head the 189-nation World Bank, was elected to the job on Friday.
Malpass was approved unanimously by the bank’s 25-member executive board. He will begin a five-year term next Tuesday succeeding Jim Yong Kim, an Obama administration pick who stepped down earlier this year, three years before his term was to end.

Recent example from Ocasio-Cortez:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., appeared to imitate a Southern accent in a speech to a predominantly black audience at Al Sharpton's National Action Network conference in New York City on Friday.
"This is what building power looks like, this is what changing the country looks like," Ocasio-Cortez said, exaggerating and drawing out vowels in a distinct change from her usual pronunciation.
The fundamental idea is for them to do certain basic tasks so that the astronauts will be freed for spending more time for other tasks. Basic tasks such as? Tracking inventory? Astrobee in cruising the ISS could be using its scanner to verify the location of items rather than astronauts doing this. Monitoring duties? Astrobee can monitor environmental conditions such as air quality or sound levels. When and where will the robots join the crew? Reports said two of the three Astrobee robots are scheduled for their space launch to launch this month from a NASA facility in Virginia.
