Annamaria, We did it!
The Washington Post and other news sites are reporting that President-Elect Joe Biden has nominated Rep. Deb Haaland to be the next Secretary of the Interior.
We now have the first-ever Native person in this crucial role. It’s thanks to the calls, letters, media, and prayers from Native activists and tribal leaders.

There is a case of (potential) Nazi-looted art in the U.S. Supreme Court this term. It is Federal Republic of Germany v.

Altmann, 541 U.S. 699 (2004), which raised the relatively narrow question of the retrospective applicability of the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act to events that took place before it was enacted. The Philipp case arises under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act as well, but it raises a bigger issue about the applicability of the act to a case of potential Nazi-looted art. First to the fascinating facts of the Philipp case.

Who was running whom in the Epstein espionage ring?
The story of the deceased pedophile and presumed Israeli spy Jeffrey Epstein continues to enthrall because so little of the truth regarding it has been revealed in spite of claims by the government that a thorough follow-up investigation has been initiated. The case is reportedly still open and it is to be presumed that Justice Department investigators have been able to examine certain aspects of what occurred more intensively. A major part of the investigation has been a review of actions taken by the four government prosecutors who were most directly involved with the negotiations with Epstein and his lawyers in 2007-8. The 22 month-long review, carried out by the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), finally produced a 350 page report which was released on November 12th.
