    The Spanish Civil War’s victorious fascists shot Las Trece Rosas — “the thirteen roses” — on this date in 1939. Earlier that 1939, Franco had clinched victory by finally capturing the capital city after a siege of 29 months. A punishing suppression of the Spain’s leftist elements ensued, running to hundreds of thousands imprisoned, executed, or chased into exile. Our 13 Roses were members of a communist/socialist youth group, JSU, and they had been arrested in rolling-up of that organization. They were crowded into the overflowing dungeons of the notorious women’s prison Las Ventas.

    Michigan Rep. Justin Amash (L) confirmed Thursday evening that he was not seeking reelection to Congress, in an apparent end to his 2020 political aspirations. Amash retweeted an article from The Detroit News that quoted an aide to the congressman as saying his reelection campaign had "idled" in February, and that Amash did not intend to seek the Libertarian Party's nomination for the district after abandoning the Republican Party last year. "He hasn't been campaigning for any office and doesn't plan to seek the nomination for any office," an adviser told the publication. "I love representing our community in Congress....

    A divided Supreme Court cleared the way for the first federal executions since 2003, issuing orders shortly after 2 a.m. Tuesday rejecting inmate claims that using pentobarbital for lethal injections would be unconstitutional.

"On Monday, June 1, 2020, I believe that you violated that oath,"...

    The dash to overnight millennial celebrity can take abrupt detours. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the democratic socialist from the Bronx in New York City, was propelled from an anonymous existence as a bartender after her upset victory in 2018 straight onto magazine covers, late-night TV and the top of every partisan love-hate list in America. It made her perhaps the most exposed and fixated-on House freshman in history. Today, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress - known simply as AOC - owns another distinction, this one far grimmer: She represents the nation’s most devastated hot zone of the coronavirus outbreak....
