News Roundup: Biden fed up with COVID-19’s willing allies; Justice takes on Texas abortion ban

In the news today: In an uncharacteristically blunt speech, President Joe Biden let loose on those still prolonging the pandemic by refusing vaccinations and other safety measures while announcing a broad program of mandatory vaccinations for government workers and large employers. Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the Department of Justice would indeed be filing suit to block Texas Republicans’ new near-total abortion ban. An infamously violent “Proud Boy” went looking for trouble in Olympia, and trouble found him right back.
