This is a pivotal moment — a moment when multiple converging crises have given way to an endless string of injustices, Prince Harry, via 'The Hill'.

Harry called on leaders and the public to model their actions after Mandela.

We can do what Mandela did every single day behind that 7.9 foot prison cell on Robben Island and every day outside of it, too.

We can find meaning and purpose in the struggle, Prince Harry, via 'The Hill'.

Let’s seek out what we have in common, empower all people to reclaim our democracy, and harness the light of Mandela’s memory to illuminate the way forward, Prince Harry, via 'The Hill'.

Biden Says ‘Pandemic Is Over,’ but Fauci Says ‘We Are Not Where We Need To Be’

Biden Says ‘Pandemic Is Over,’ , but Fauci Says ‘We Are Not Where We Need To Be’. On Sept. 18, a '60 Minutes' interview aired in which the president said America appears to be in "good shape" when it comes to COVID. . The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with COVID. We’re still doing a lotta work on it. It’s — but the pandemic is over. , President Joe Biden, via '60 Minutes'. If you notice, no one’s wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And so I think it’s changing. And I think this is a perfect example of it, President Joe Biden, via '60 Minutes'. 'The Hill' reports that one day after that interview aired, Dr. Anthony Fauci chimed in. . How we respond and how we’re prepared for the evolution of these variants is going to depend on us. , Dr. Anthony Fauci, via statement. And that gets to the other conflicting aspect of this — is the lack of a uniform acceptance of the interventions that are available to us in this country.., Dr. Anthony Fauci, via statement. ... where even now, more than two years, close to three years, into the outbreak, we have only 67 percent of our population vaccinated and only one-half of those have received a single boost, Dr. Anthony Fauci, via statement. Fauci went on to say that the U.S. is still documenting over 400 COVID-related deaths each day. . But we are not where we need to be if we’re going to be able to, quote, ‘live with the virus,’ because we know we’re not going to eradicate it. , Dr. Anthony Fauci, via statement. We only did that with one virus, which is smallpox, and that was very different because smallpox doesn’t change from year to year, or decade to decade, or even from century to century, Dr. Anthony Fauci, via statement

'Vice' reports that buried deep in a report relating to the budget that governs America's clandestine services are two startling claims. The first is that , “cross-domain transmedium threats to the United States national security are expanding exponentially.” . According to the Pentagon, a "cross-domain transmedium" threat is one that is capable of moving from water to air to space in ways we cannot comprehend. In July, the Pentagon opened the, All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), to investigate these mysterious threats. The second claim in the report is a desire to distinguish between UFOs that are human in origin and those that are something else. Temporary nonattributed objects, or those that are positively identified as man-made after analysis, will be passed to appropriate offices and should not be considered under the definition as unidentified aerospace-undersea phenomena, Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023, via 'Vice'. 'Vice' points out that the admissions come as more information regarding the U.S. government's study of UFOs has been dragged into the public spotlight. Previously, politicians had always stopped short of claiming that the unidentified objects were extraterrestrial or extradimensional in origin. This implies that members of the Senate Intelligence Committee believe (on a unanimous, bipartisan basis) that some UFOs have non-human origins, Marik von Rennenkampff, Former Department of Defense official, via 'The Hill'. After all, why would Congress establish and task a powerful new office with investigating non-'man-made' UFOs if such objects did not exist?, Marik von Rennenkampff, Former Department of Defense official, via 'The Hill'

But in Florida, the First Amendment apparently bars private actors from burdening speech, while the state may burden speech freely, Mark Walker, U.S. District of Florida Chief Judge, via 'The Hill'. 'The Hill' reports that the law prevents workplaces from requiring employees to attend any activity that violates any of eight different concepts, . such as claiming someone has a “personal responsibility” to make up for wrongdoings of the past because of their race and other factors. According to 'The Hill,' DeSantis and other Republicans support the legislation for pushing back against what they view as a liberal agenda focused on instilling a sense of guilt in white people. In Florida, we will not let the far-left woke agenda take over our schools and workplaces. There is no place for indoctrination or discrimination in Florida, Ron DeSantis, Governor of Florida, via 'The Hill'. The judge argued that the law utilized a viewpoint-based regulation on speech. . If Florida truly believes we live in a post-racial society, then let it make its case.
