For some time, I've been reading American Historian Heather Cox Richardson's near-daily letters from an American. She is a Democrat and a big fan of President Joe Biden. As are her loyal, ardent legion of readers, based on reader comments under her letters. Here's a link and the lead into her letter yesterday:
Summarizing U.S. political news these days sometimes feels like following two entirely different threads. On the one hand, there is the story about what’s happening in the White House and among the Democrats in Congress, who are trying to pass laws that are really quite popular—like the bipartisan infrastructure law and the Build Back Better bill—and to shore up the democratic alliances that have been central to our place in the world since World War II.
On the other hand is the story of the January 6 insurrection and the ongoing attempt of the Trump Republicans to undermine our government and seize power.
