Year 5, Week 6 (February 21-27)

I’ve been asked a few times now whether I really intend to keep going, now that the distasteful Cheeto is out of office; I think folks expect things to calm down and return to “normal” with a grown-up at the helm. But weeks like the one we just had really nicely illustrate why I want to keep going–between the illustrative CPAC theatrics and the current state of Congress, there is still so much to fix.

Standard standing reminders still apply: I am no journalist, though I play one in your inbox or browser, so I’m mostly summarizing the news within my area of expertise. NNR summaries often contain some detailed analysis that’s outside my expertise–I’m a lawyer, not a power grid!–but all offroad adventures are marked with an asterisk. And, of course, for the things that are within my lane, I’m offering context that shouldn’t be considered legal advice. Okay, I think that’s about it for the disclaimers.  Onward to the news!     

Cleanup in Aisle 45:

If CPAC made one thing clear, it’s that Election Rejection isn’t going anywhere, even though half the country is sick to death of it by now. Here’s what I have for you:

We also saw a bit of movement on the Biden Rebuilding fronts.  Here’s what has happened in the past week:  

Your New Normal:

The Bad:

The Good:

So that’s what I have for this week, and it was kind of bargain-basement but some weeks are like that. For making it through, you deserve these foxes laughing and a more consistently better government.  I’ll be back next week with more restructured and improved news, and I hope you will be back as well–but in the meantime, feel free to ping the National News Roundup ask box, which is there for your constructive comments.  Send me questions!
