Joni Mitchell Plans to Follow Neil Young Off Spotify, Citing ‘Lies’
Joni Mitchell said Friday that she would remove her music from Spotify,joining Neil Young in his protest against the streaming service over its role in giving a platform to Covid-19 vaccine misinformation.Mitchell, an esteemed singer-songwriter of songs like “Big Yellow Taxi,” and whose landmark album “Blue” just had its 50th anniversary, posted a brief statement on her website Friday saying that she would remove her music from the streaming service. “Irresponsible people are spreading lies that are costing people their lives,” she wrote. “I stand in solidarity with Neil Young and the global scientific and medical communities on this issue.”Her statement adds fuel to a small but growing revolt over Spotify, with few major artists speaking out but fans commenting widely on social media. The debate has also brought into relief questions about how much power artists wield to control distribution of their work, and the perennially thorny issue of free speech online.

REPORT: U.S. Gov. Is NOT Ready For Another Public Health Crisis
Nonpartisan watchdog organization the Government Accountability Office has warned that the Department of Health and Human Services is failing to properly address and prepare for public health crises (shocker). Although there are no overt penalties that will come about from this report, the GAO states that left unattended, the deficiencies in the department could have catastrophic results for future crises. Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, and Francesca Fiorentini discuss on The Young Turks. Watch LIVE weekdays 6-8 pm ET. http://youtube.com/theyoungturks/live Read more HERE: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/government-watchdog-says-key-federal-health-agency-failing-crises-n1288154 “The federal Department of Health and Human Services is failing to meet its responsibilities for leading the nation’s response to public health emergencies including the coronavirus pandemic, extreme weather disasters and even potential bioterror attacks, a nonpartisan congressional watchdog said in a sobering report Thursday. The Government Accountability Office said it is designating HHS’ leadership and coordination of public health emergencies as a “high risk” area for the government. Such a “high risk” designation from the GAO carries no immediate penalties for an agency, but it signals to Congress that lawmakers need to pay special attention to that agency’s operations to avoid future debacles. Longstanding “persistent deficiencies” at HHS “have hindered the nation’s response to the current COVID-19 pandemic and a variety of past threats,” the GAO said in its report. "If left unaddressed, these deficiencies will continue to hamper the nation’s ability to be prepared for, and effectively respond to, future threats."”

Defense Contractors Can’t Wait For War In Ukraine
Weapons manufacturers like Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, and General Dynamics are openly telling shareholders that U.S. involvement in the ongoing Ukraine-Russia conflict will be great for business. As tensions mount, defense contractors are cashing in from the U.S. government providing the Ukrainian military with weapons, ammunition, and missiles as well as escalating tensions between the U.S. and Russia. Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, and Francesca Fiorentini discuss on The Young Turks. Watch LIVE weekdays 6-8 pm ET. http://youtube.com/theyoungturks/live Read more HERE: https://inthesetimes.com/article/ukraine-russia-raytheon-lockheed-martin-general-dynamics-weapons-industry “As the United States weighs more involvement in the growing conflict between Ukraine and Russia, some of the largest weapons companies in the world — Raytheon and Lockheed Martin — are openly telling their investors that tensions between the countries are good for business. And General Dynamics, meanwhile, is boasting about the past returns the company has seen as a result of such disputes. The statements come as the U.S. government escalates arms shipments to Ukraine, among them the Javelin missiles that are a joint venture between Raytheon and Lockheed Martin. House Democrats, meanwhile, are trying to quickly push through a bill that would significantly increase U.S. military assistance to Ukraine, and impose new sanctions on Russia. Anti-war campaigners warn that U.S. escalation, amid renewed tensions between Ukraine and Russia, could bring dire consequences, and spill into a much larger and more protracted war. “As we are shipping advanced weaponry to the Ukrainian military, the Biden administration has signaled that U.S. military advisors will continue to stay in the country,” Cavan Kharrazian, progressive foreign policy campaigner for the advocacy organization Demand Progress, tells In These Times. “Who will most likely set up and teach the Ukrainian army how to use these weapons systems? The U.S. military.””

Covid-19 is complicating preparations for the East Coast’s snowstorm.
Officials across the Northeast geared up Friday to battle high winds and blizzard conditions, but work force shortages caused by Covid-19 complicated their efforts.The intensity of the storm could further strain staffing stretched thin as the highly contagious Omicron forces sick employees to isolate with symptoms and even asymptomatic patients to quarantine for fear they could infect others.About 10 or so workers were out because of Covid-19 and the virus was making other tasks more difficult in the town of Plymouth, Mass., which was bracing for more than two feet of snow, said Jonathan Beder, the town’s director of public works.In addition to the absences, officials were trying not to transport emergency workers in the same vehicle, Mr. Beder said. He added that even contract help was scarce.

Biden’s Oil Lease Sales DENIED By Federal Judge
A federal judge has just overturned the Biden Administration’s auctioning off of over 80 million acres of oil and gas leases in the Gulf of Mexico, arguing that the administration did not sufficiently account for the environmental impact of the leased drilling sites. It is now up to the Interior Department to determine if the leases will go up for auction again, taking into account the green house gas emissions and overall environmental impact of the project. Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, and Francesca Fiorentini discuss on The Young Turks. Watch LIVE weekdays 6-8 pm ET. http://youtube.com/theyoungturks/live Read more HERE: https://www.nytimes.com/2022/01/27/climate/federal-court-drilling-gulf.html?smid=tw-nytimes&smtyp=cur “A federal judge on Thursday canceled oil and gas leases of more than 80 million acres in the Gulf of Mexico, ruling that the Biden administration did not sufficiently take climate change into account when it auctioned the leases late last year. The decision by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia is a major victory for environmental groups that criticized the Biden administration for holding the sale after promising to move the country away from fossil fuels. It had been the largest lease sale in United States history. Now the Interior Department must conduct a new environmental analysis that accounts for the greenhouse gas emissions that would result from the eventual development and production of the leases. After that, the agency will have to decide whether it will hold a new auction.”

Bridge Collapses In Pittsburgh Hours Before Biden’s Visit
A bridge in Pittsburgh collapsed early Friday morning just hours before President Biden was set to appear at a Carnegie Mellon University research hub to promote the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill. Although the accident cause multiple injuries, damage to cars and buses, and a gas line leak, no fatalities have been reported. Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, and Francesca Fiorentini discuss on The Young Turks. Watch LIVE weekdays 6-8 pm ET. http://youtube.com/theyoungturks/live Read more HERE: https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/emergency-crews-scene-bridge-collapse-pittsburgh-82531296 “A 50-year-old bridge collapsed in Pittsburgh early Friday, requiring rescuers to rappel nearly 150 feet (46 meters) and form a human chain to reach occupants of a bus that had plummeted with the span into a park ravine. The collapse came hours before President Joe Biden was to visit the city to promote his $1 trillion infrastructure law, which has earmarked about $1.6 billion for Pennsylvania bridge maintenance. There were minor injuries from the collapse but no fatalities, said authorities, who also flew drones to make sure no one was under any collapsed sections. Five other vehicles were also on the bridge at the time. The cause was being investigated and crews were searching under the debris for additional victims.”
