**Yesterday President Biden signed an executive order renewing a White House initiative charged with advancing "equity, justice, and opportunity for Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders," including coordinating a "comprehensive" federal response to the rise in anti-Asian violence and discriminations.
**The Biden administration approved a crucial element of the Gateway project - an environmental impact statement for the Hudson Tunnel Project - in an effort to repair tunnels that were damaged by Superstorm Sandy and expand rail capacity between New York and New Jersey.
**It was a surprise to see the Senate quickly confirm Biden's Cabinet nominee Eric Lander to lead the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy on Friday.
Losers from Last Week
**The American people lost after Mitch McConnell pleaded (as a personal favor to him) with GOP senators to block the Jan. 6 Commission legislation on Friday.
It worked. Hope for a bipartisan investigation into the assault on our Capitol was smashed.
Those GOP Senators that sold out their country should be embarrassed and ashamed. Especially this weekend as we honor the heroes who served in the military defending our constitution and democracy since it's inception.
**Once respected New York mayor, Rudy Giuliani, whose morphed into a full-time conspiracy wackaloon, is being sued for inciting the Jan. 6 riot with his rhetoric.
Rudy - now a Trump puppet - told the judge no reasonable person would believe what he was saying and take it literally.
That would explain why the Trumpies and militia members attacked Capitol Hill police, but it's hardly a defense.
**The biggest loser in The House of Representatives, Marjorie Taylor Greene, was up to her usual hateful rhetoric when she compared wearing a mask to the holocaust!
Meanwhile Kevin McCarthy is waiting for Trump to tell him what to do with Greene who is embarrassing a lot of her fellow Republicans and generating unflattering media for the party to deal with.
