Back in February the Stars and Stripes was notified their funding would be cut in 2021. Their editorial independence from Pentagon oversight proving too much to bear for Trump. One assumes the sudden shutdown was related to the coming election, when all dissent must be squashed beforehand.
He cannot shut down The Atlantic Monthly, but he shut down a goverment run paper.
The first Stars and Stripes rolled off presses Nov. 9, 1861 in
Bloomfield, Missouri when forces headed by Ulysses Grant overran the
tiny town on the way to Cape Girardeau. A group of Grant’s troops who
had been pressmen before the war set up shop at a local newspaper office
abandoned by its Confederate sympathizer publisher.
“Renters with children, like Robinson, are likely to be hit hardest. There are 14 million renters across the U.S. with children, and research shows that they are more likely to receive an eviction judgment. All renters also face disparities within the legal system; fewer than 10% of renters have access to legal counsel compared with 90% of landlords, making it that much harder to fight an eviction judgment.
“Experts have pointed out that this unprecedented public health crisis hit amid a preexisting crisis that has already affected millions of Americans. From 2006 to 2016, 61 million eviction cases were filed in the U.S., with more than 3 million evictions occurring annually, according to the Eviction Lab at Princeton University.
…”‘Unless the United States immediately invests in eviction prevention, we can expect the pillars of resiliency ― employment, education, health care and housing ― to splinter across the country, especially among communities of color who entered the pandemic at a deficit due to systemic and structural racial discrimination,’ Emily Benfer, a law professor at Wake Forest University School of Law and co-creator of the Eviction Lab COVID-19 Housing Policy Scorecard said in a statement Friday.
“’Ultimately, only a long-term solution to housing precarity can protect the millions of Americans who are accruing significant amounts of back rent and the landlords and communities who rely on rent payments.’
"The long-term solution is twofold, said Yentel of the NLIHC. Implementing a uniform national eviction moratorium for the entirety of the pandemic is essential, as is addressing back pay for when the pandemic is over. The NLIHC has worked with Congress to push for $100 billion in rental assistance.
”“Eviction moratoriums aren’t enough, and they create a financial cliff for renters and landlords,’ Yentel said. ‘We don’t want to end this crisis having saddled more low-income people with more debt.’”
