You can see Vladimir Putin’s early days in the new political thriller play “We Declare You a Terrorist,” running at Round House Theatre in Bethesda, Maryland now through May 8. “People will be surprised by similarities about what Putin did then and what he is doing now,” Actor Cody Nickell told WTOP. “It is definitely a mystery. … You don’t know where it’s going. It’s full of tension. Audiences might come thinking they know what’s happening in Ukraine, then get a whole new version of what happened in Chechnya 20 years ago.” Set in Moscow in 2002, Putin has brutally crushed a rebellion in the territory of Chechnya during his first official term as Russian president. One night at the Dubrovka Theater, a group of Chechen insurgents hijack a blockbuster musical production and...
    A female scientist went limp as she and other climate change activists blocked a Washington DC highway as furious motorists late for work yelled at the police to arrest them. Roughly 10 Extinction Rebellion and Scientist Rebellion protesters blocked I-395 going into Washington DC on Friday morning, halting the morning commute for many disgruntled drivers.

This isn't free speech!'  Another in a black sweatshirt yelled: 'We got to go to work, man! We got to feed our kids, come on! Get out of the way!'   Another popped out of his sunroof to tell the protesters to 'go to Capitol Hill if you're really concerned about this...
    Two Texas mayors are sounding the alarm and calling on the Biden administration for help as migrants, a significant portion of which have tested positive for COVID-19, flood into The Lone Star State.  McAllen, Texas Mayor Major Javier Villalobos said Friday that his town was at a "breaking point" and he ultimately decided to issue an emergency declaration to build a "tent city" for the massive influx of migrants.  With minimal help from the federal government, Catholic charities in the area were utilizing donations to house and assist migrants who had been bussed into McAllen.  TEXAS BORDER CITY SAYS MORE THAN 7,000 COVID-POSITIVE MIGRANTS RELEASED SINCE FEBRUARY, 1,500 IN LAST WEEK "The Catholic charities just couldn’t handle it anymore," Villalobos told "America’s Newsroom." "We get a call, so we have to immediately act because we cannot—we shouldn’t and we cannot let the immigrants roam around our city—especially with a high COVID rate." Villalobos said that migrant COVID-positivity rate had in the past sat at around four to five percent—but had now reached a staggering 16%.  The McAllen mayor added that...

    Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci pumped the breaks on the Texas Rangers’ full-capacity home-opener. Fauci cautioned against declaring “victory prematurely” when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic, saying relaxing on masking and distancing is “really taking a pretty big risk.” “We’re looking at kind of a race between the vaccine, which is highly efficacious, and a real — I don’t want to say surge because surge means you get a really high increase — we’re seeing it start to creep up now. So, the real question is the efficacy of the vaccine going to prevent that from going up the way we saw it in previous surges? I hope not,” Fauci stated. “I don’t think so because as long as we keep vaccinating people efficiently and effectively, I don’t think that’s going to happen. That doesn’t mean that we’re not going to still see increases in cases.” He continued, “Whether it explodes into a real surge or not remains to be seen. I think that the vaccine is going to prevent that...
    A year into the pandemic, infection rates are falling. Hospitals are quieter; morgues are emptier. Emboldened by vaccines, we’re dropping our masks and stepping closer. Slowly we’re reopening indoor dining, theaters, museums, and schools. Will we declare victory over COVID-19? No, say public health experts. But we’ll negotiate an uneasy truce. Rather than completely eliminating the virus, we can create a strict containment strategy, building public health bulwarks to help fend off an enemy that is wily, adaptive and enduring. This means accepting a certain level of risk as society returns to normal, they add. “Here’s what we can call ‘victory’: Learning how to live with this virus in a way that allows us to continue to enjoy life,” said Dr. John Swartzberg of UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health. Over time – as vaccines improve, death tolls fall and we adopt new behaviors, like wearing masks when we’re sick – we’ll accommodate it, just as we do with other deadly infectious diseases, he said. In the past year, there have been unimaginable strides against the virus. With accelerated plans...
    (CNN)Three progressive lawmakers introduced legislation Thursday that would require President Joe Biden to declare a national climate emergency, arguing that the US is "out of time and excuses" to deal with the climate crisis.The National Climate Emergency Act, introduced by Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, along with Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, would direct Biden to declare a national emergency under the National Emergencies Act of 1976, allowing him to unlock sweeping presidential powers and be able to organize resources to mitigate climate change.They had introduced a similar resolution in 2019 -- but it had little hope of advancing in the Republican-led Senate and under former President Donald Trump. Now, the lawmakers have re-energized their efforts under a new administration committed to combating climate change with an ambitious plan to do so."President Biden has done an outstanding job of prioritizing climate in the first days of his administration, but after years of blatant ignorance from Trump and Congressional republicans, an even larger mobilization is needed," Blumenauer said in a statement unveiling the...
    Chris Christie on Tuesday said it is a 'fact' Joe Biden won the election before slamming pardoned General Michael Flynn for advocating martial law.  The Republican former governor of New Jersey told Fox News: 'I think this is a very, very dangerous thing that we're engaging in.' Donald Trump has made unsubstantiated claims of widespread electoral fraud and has been trying unsuccessfully to overturn the victory of Democrat Biden.  His campaign has challenged the outcome in court in multiple states while also pressing state officials, lawmakers and governors to throw the results out and declare Trump the winner.  But Christie, who again did not rule out running for president in 2024, said Tuesday: 'We've had promises from Sidney Powell and other members of the president's legal team for blockbuster evidence and none of it has come forward. 'And so, you know, I'm as disappointed as anybody that the president was not reelected in November, but the fact is Joe Biden won the majority of the electoral votes, he had 306, and I think this is a very, very dangerous thing that we...
