Americans are voting to legalize weed. Its unlikely the next Congress will do the same. – 9:08 AM 11/29/2020 https://mynewslinks.com/america-legalize-weed-congress-440718/ Americans are voting to legalize weed. Its unlikely the next Congress will do the same. Politico On Election Day, two staunchly conservative states legalized recreational marijuana. A third of Americans now live in a state where weed is legal for adult use. Fresh Gallup polling says 68 percent of the country favors having legal access to marijuana. But the Senate operates under a different reality. Many of the Senates older, conservative members are still resistant to any path to legalization for marijuana. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has mocked the House for action on cannabis and was unmoved even by Republican marijuana champion Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado, a member of the chambers leadership, who wont be around next year. Red states including Oklahoma, South Dakota and Mississippi have now legalized some form of pot but for the foreseeable future, millions of Americans will be consuming a product the federal government still categorizes as a highly dangerous illegal drug with no medical value.

This Is the Year Marijuana Finally Gets Legalized in New York NBC New York
Sun, 29 Nov 2020 14:31:00 +0000

After years of near-misses, Gov. Andrew Cuomo expects New York legislators to finally legalize marijuana in 2021, getting over past opposition and division for one simple reason – the state needs the money.

New Jersey voters legalized marijuana by ballot initiative on Tuesday, putting even more pressure on New York to catch up. Cuomo, in an interview with public radio station WAMC Thursday, said New Jersey was right to do it by ballot because it was faster than legislation.

But either way, he expects a deal with lawmakers next year.

I think this year it is ripe, because the state is going to be desperate for funding, even with Biden, even with stimulus, even with everything else, were still going to be desperate for funding – and its also the right policy,” Cuomo said, referring to the 2021 legislative session.

New York has already eased penalties for possession of small amounts of marijuana, but full legalization bogged down in the last legislative session amid a fight over how the tax revenue would be spent.

The state faces a giant budget hole of billions of dollars due to the coronavirus pandemic, one that will force massive cuts to education and other public resources without federal aid and more revenue (like marijuana taxes).

“You have such a gap now I think its going to be an easier conversation,” Cuomo said.

1 In 13 Of All US Nursing Home Residents Have Died Of COVID-19 Tyler Durden Sun, 11/29/2020 – 09:20

Authored by Kenny Stancil via CommonDreams.org,

As of the last week of November, Covid-19 has claimed the lives of more than 100,000 people who live and work in long-term care facilities in the United Statesaccording to the Kaiser Family Foundation’s latest analysis of state-reported data.

The following chart depicts the growth in Covid-19 deaths among nursing home residents and staff in the U.S. since April. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF), 40% of the nation’s Covid-19 deaths have occurred in long-term care facilities.

 

“While early action to prevent the spread of coronavirus in long-term care facilities led to strict protocols related to testing, personal protective equipment, and visitor restrictions,” KFF pointed out that “several of these measures have been reversed in recent months, and some long-term care facilities continue to report shortages of PPE and staff.”

According to physician and public health expert Michael Barnett, 7.7% of the nation’s nursing home residents, or one in 13, have now died as a result of Covid-19. “Things have never really gotten better,” he tweeted. “Testing is a struggle, PPE and staff are daily challenges.”

Soon after reaching the “bleak milestone” of 100,000 pandemic deaths in long-term care facilities, which happened on Tuesday, the U.S. on Thursday experienced a new record-high number of coronavirus-related hospitalizations, as Common Dreams reported earlier Friday.

Millions of Americans have passed through airports in the past week, despite the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendation against traveling for Thanksgiving. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, does not expect conditions to improve by Christmas and the New Year.

As KFF explained, the predicted “surge in cases after holiday gatherings and increased time indoors due to winter weather… will have ripple effects on hospitals and nursing homes, given the close relationship between community spread and cases in congregate care settings.”

(Photo: John Moore/Getty Images)The country’s Covid-19 death toll surpassed 264,000 on Friday. Meanwhile, Thanksgiving marked the 24th consecutive day of more than 100,000 new daily cases in the U.S.

Given the pandemic’s disproportionate impact on the high-risk populations who live and work in long-term care facilities, even more nursing home residents, employees, and their families are expected to be negatively affected by coronavirus as long as the number of infections continues to grow.

“Post-Thanksgiving surges in cases are unlikely to spare this community and will likely lead to an even higher death toll in long-term care facilities,” KFF said, “raising questions about whether nursing homes and other facilities are able to protect their residents and, if not, what actions can be taken to mitigate the threat posed by the virus.”

A very grim milestone: the US has reached 100,000 deaths in nursing homes from COVID-19

That is **7.7%** of all nursing home residents nationally. 1 in 13

Michael L. Barnett (@ml_barnett) November 25, 2020

As the New York Times reported in June, when the Covid-19 death toll in long-term care facilities was just over 50,000, some critics have argued that the profit-driven nature of the private nursing home industry is the underlying problem, since treating elder care as a commodity rather than a public good can incentivize cost-cutting or money-making measures that put people in harm’s way.

An investigation of long-term care facilities in Connecticut, the results of which were published in August, lent credence to that hypothesis. According to the study, “For-profit nursing homes had about 60% more cases and deaths per licensed bed than nonprofit ones,” while “larger facilities were hit harder than smaller ones, and… homes serving as part of a chain had worse outcomes,” as Reuters reported at the time.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) noted this week that he and Sen. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) “have a bill to help nursing homes protect their residents and workers from Covid-19.” According to Whitehouse, “It’s time to pass it.”

Saved Stories None: Israeli minister says Netanyahu met Saudi Crown Prince, but Riyadh denies it
Sun, 29 Nov 2020 13:34:35 +0000

Speaking on Israels Army Radio on Monday, Education Minister Yoav Gallant called the covert meeting, which reportedly took place in the Saudi city of Neom, an incredible achievement and congratulated Netanyahu.

Lets say that the very existence of the meeting, the fact that it was put out publicly, even if its half official at the moment, is a matter of great importance from any aspect and matter, a member of Netanyahus Likud party, when asked about the Sunday meeting.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

was also in Neom at the same time meeting with bin Salman as part of his tour of the Middle East. Several Israeli news organizations reported that Pompeo also took part in the meeting.

But Saudi Arabias foreign minister, Faisal bin Farhan, denied the meeting took place. I have seen press reports about a purported meeting between HRH the Crown Prince and Israeli officials during the recent visit by @SecPompeo. No such meeting occurred. The only officials present were American and Saudi, bin Farhan tweeted Monday.

State Department Principal Deputy Spokesperson Cale Brown declined to comment to the pool traveling with Pompeo on the reports. The only meeting listed on his public schedule was one with the Saudi Crown Prince, which was closed to the press. Pompeo took no questions from the traveling press pool during the entire 10-day trip across Europe and the Middle East.

The Israeli government has not commented on the meeting, which has been reported by several Israeli news outlets, but there has been no official denial either. Netanyahu was joined by Mossad head Yossi Cohen, who has spearheaded the normalization efforts between Israel and the Sunni Gulf states, according to the Israeli reports.

A private business jet often used by Israeli officials was tracked flying in a highly unusual route from Israel toward Saudi Arabia and the city of Neom on Sunday, according to flight tracking websites ADS-B Exchange, FlightAware, and others. The flight returned to Israel a few hours later.

The meeting, if confirmed, would be the first of its kind between the Israeli Prime Minister and the Saudi Crown Prince, and it comes just months after the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain normalized relations with Israel. Bahrain almost certainly had tacit Saudi approval for the move, given the tiny kingdoms reliance and closeness to Saudi Arabia, analysts have said.

Amos Yadlin, the executive director of Israels Institute for National Security Studies, suggested that such a meeting would represent a chance for Pompeo to promote the legacy of the Trump administration and try to advance additional

normalization agreements

with an eye to running for the White House in 2024. Perhaps more importantly, Yadlin said the three sides here were likely working against Iran in unison and planning what moves to make before a Biden administration takes office and pursues a nuclear agreement with Iran.

Pompeo and the Trump administration have put huge pressure on the Saudis to normalize relations with Israel, a senior Saudi diplomat told CNN. Even in the waning days of Trumps time in office, Pompeo who has yet to acknowledge Joe Bidens victory in the elections has pressed forward, urging more countries to normalize ties with Israel. Before arriving in Saudi Arabia, Pompeo was in Qatar, another country high on the White Houses list for normalization with Israel.

I believe in all my heart that the Trump administration policies that we have set up created the conditions for those leaders to make exactly that decision, and if they do, it will be a glorious thing for the region, Pompeo told the Jerusalem Post during his stop in Israel. The people of these countries will be better off, [with] more prosperity and opportunity.

So far at least, those efforts have hit a wall, with Saudi officials insisting a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and recognition of a two-state solution is a necessary prerequisite for normalization, based on the 2002 Saudi-led Arab Peace Initiative.

We made [our position] very clear, Saudi Finance Minister Mohammed Al-Jadaan told CNN. We put an initiative on the table and we think that this is the right initiative that will bring peace to the Middle East, [recognizing] a two-state solution and the rights of the Palestinians.

Yet the Arab Peace Initiative has begun to show cracks, enlarged by the Gulf states desires to form a united front against Iran and to draw closer to Israel. The most notable of those cracks were the normalization agreements the UAE and Bahrain signed with Israel. At least so far, the Saudis have not taken that decision, but the signs of their growing closeness to Israel and their frustration with the Palestinians are apparently growing.

Saudis former ambassador to the United States, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, ripped Palestinian leaders last month in an interview with Saudi-owned Al Arabiya TV, saying, They always bet on the losing side. He said the Palestinian criticism of the new normalization agreements was shocking and unacceptable. They would fail and turn back to us again and we would support them again. We even went further and stood against the world by justifying the actions of the Palestinians while we know that they were not justified. But we did not wish to stand with anyone against them, Prince Bandar said.

Saudi Arabia is a huge prize for Trump and Netanyahu, both of whom have suggested more Gulf countries would soon normalize relations with Israel. Saudi would be the most significant country by far, standing as the de facto leader of the Sunni Muslim world. A Saudi decision to normalize relations with Israel could potentially pull other Sunni countries along. The reported meeting between Netanyahu and bin Salman would be a step in that direction.

A short time before the private business jet left Israel, Netanyahu foreshadowed the continued change in relations with more Gulf states. Speaking at a memorial ceremony for Israels first leader, David Ben-Gurion, Netanyahu said, Following the peace agreements with Egypt and Jordan, recently, within six weeks, we brought three new peace agreements and normalization agreements: with the UAE, with Bahrain, and with Sudan. If we continue down this path of the strengthening of Israels power, and the strengthening of the ties with moderate Arab world that pushing toward stability and advancement we will see more Arab states that widen the circle of peace.

Speaking at a Likud faction meeting Monday afternoon in the Knesset, Netanyahu did not specifically address the meeting, but he said he is working to widen the circle of countries that have relations with Israel.
