Good morning from Washington, where constitutional scrutiny is on President Biden’s decision to force millions of Americans to be vaccinated against COVID-19. On the podcast, Heritage Foundation legal scholar John Malcolm unpacks the basics. In California, voters opt not to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom by a wide margin. Fred Lucas has details. Plus: a Senate panel seeks answers on the botched U.S. exit from Afghanistan; Google rejects a pro-life group’s ads; and three champions of freedom take home a big prize. On this date in 1978, boxer Muhammad Ali defeats Leon Spinks at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans to claim the world heavyweight boxing title for the third time, becoming the first fighter ever to do so.
