News Roundup: Another federal shutdown approaches; Gaetz goes neo-Nazi; post-Roe Texas

In the news today: Senate Republicans aren’t budging from their vow to shut down the federal government—again—rather than voting with Democrats to keep it open. With the fall of Roe v. Wade in Texas, women in that state are now facing hours-long drives to out-of-state clinics. An already-disgraced House Republican is again attempting to distract from his own scandals by creating new ones, in this case by promoting the neo-Nazi “Great Replacement” conspiracy theory declaring that Democrats and “globalists” have been inundating the nation with nonwhite immigrants in order to weaken the power of whites. And yes, he heard it from Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.
