1.This week: House begins legislative business after Speaker spectacle
TheHill–The House is set to begin its legislative business on Monday after last week’s four-day Speaker election spectacle, which ended with Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) securing the gavel following 15 rounds of voting.

The House is scheduled to meet on Monday and will move to its first order of business: voting on a rules package for the 118th Congress, which has already come under scrutiny from some Republicans. The terms were central to GOP negotiations last week, with McCarthy offering a number of concessions to lock up the Speakership.

After the rules are adopted, the House is scheduled to take up the Family and Small Business Taxpayer Protection Act, which calls for rescinding the money for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that was included in the Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act. Other bills are also slated to come to the floor this week.

Ryan Lynch: The House GOP needs to start tackling the issues plaguing our country. Hopefully, McCarthy will stick to his promised concessions.

2.Taiwan condemns China for latest combat drills near island
Reuters–Taiwan condemned China on Monday for holding its second military combat drills around the island in less than a month, with the defence ministry saying it had detected 57 Chinese aircraft.

China views democratically-governed Taiwan as its own territory and has been ramping up military, political and economic pressure to assert those claims.

The Eastern Theatre Command of the People’s Liberation Army said its forces held “joint combat readiness patrols and actual combat drills” in the sea and airspace around Taiwan, focused on land strikes and sea assaults.

Ryan Lynch: It’s only a matter of time before these drills become military action. I hope we don’t have Biden at the helm when that time comes.

3.Brazil is reeling after Bolsonaro supporters stormed government buildings. Here’s what you need to know
CNN-Brazilian authorities say they have restored order in the capital Brasilia after hundreds of supporters of former leader Jair Bolsonaro stormed government buildings to protest against his successor and rival, President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

The breaches came about a week after the inauguration of Lula da Silva, who returned to power following a 12-year hiatus that ended when he defeated Bolsonaro in a run-off election in October.

Hundreds of Bolsonaro supporters smashed windows and used furniture to form barricades against security forces as they raided the congressional building, the Supreme Court and the Planalto Presidential Palace on Sunday. At least 400 people have been arrested, authorities said.

Ryan Lynch: What? The media hasn’t blamed Trump yet??

4.Police officer shot, 1 suspect dead and another injured in Nevada shooting
FoxNews–A police officer was injured, one suspect was killed, and another suspect was injured in a shooting in Reno, Nevada, on Sunday, according to officials.

The shooting took place around 7:30 p.m. local time Sunday near an apartment complex on Sky Valley Drive after officers responded to a “trouble unknown” call.

It remains unclear what led to the shooting.

Reno Police and local SWAT teams were on the scene. Police told 2News that two suspects and two officers were involved in the shooting.

Ryan Lynch: Biden’s America. That’s all I think when I see or hear about these things.

5. Nurses set to strike at 2 of NYC’s largest hospitals
CNBC–Thousands of nurses at two of New York City’s largest hospitals were set to go on strike Monday morning after a weekend of negotiations over pay and staffing failed to produce a deal for a new contract.

As many as 3,500 nurses at the Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx were expected to participate in a walkout starting at 6 a.m. Monday, along with around 3,600 nurses at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, The Associated Press reported.

Nurses at two facilities within Mount Sinai’s health care system tentatively agreed to contracts Sunday, the New York State Nurses Association, the largest union representing registered nurses in the state, announced, but negotiations continued at its flagship hospital.

Ryan Lynch: Nurses are heroes. I do believe they deserve fair contracts.
