Majorie Taylor Greene of Georgia removed from her House committees…Gerald Horne on Iran and international news…Biden signs new orders on immigration…The latest on teachers and public school reopening amid COVID…Maryland agricultural reserve saved from industrial solar farm…Montgomery County, Md. issues long-awaited public safety report… Culture and Media: Progressive content producers demonetized on YouTube…Fight to allow Line 3 pipeline protest in Minnesota…This week in history: 1961 Greensboro sit-in…
