By ONME Newswire


In this episode of Democracy Revealed, host Michael Wyatt Tucker leads off with national news: President Joe Biden, newly sworn in as the 46th President, begins to sign executive orders, including one continuing the pause on federal education loan payments until the end of September 2021.

With the Senate split 50-50 between the Republican and Democratic caucuses, Mitch McConnell tries to protect the legislative filibuster in his power-sharing negotiations with the new Democratic Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Among former President Trump’s end of term pardons and commutations are two disgraced former Republican members of the House of Representatives hailing from the great state of California.

In this week’s California news, Tucker discusses the first proposition that has made the November 2022 ballot: a referendum on the recently passed law banning most flavored tobacco products in California.

Also, he discusses talk of simplifying the distribution tiers for the covid-19 vaccine in California, the EDD ID verification mess, and the hubbub about the secrecy related to how the California Government decides when to lift stay-at-home orders.

In this week’s California regional news, Tucker discusses California’s new MyTurn notification system that is supposed to tell Californians when it is their turn to get the vaccine. He discusses its current state and where to go to sign up.

He also discusses a new wearable covid-19 test that is being developed at UC San Diego, an expansion to The Mission at Kern County that adds available beds to the shelter, news of some unfortunate lay-offs at Fresno State and the civil inquiry into potential civil rights violations by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department headed by Attorney General Xavier Becerra.
