    CHICAGO (CBS) — Mayor Lori Lightfoot said at a news conference Sunday that all teachers who have not received a special accommodation are expected to be back in school on Monday – and if they aren’t, “we’re going to have to take action.” But the Chicago Teachers Union is telling teachers to stay remote, out of concern for safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, the Chicago Public Schools said adequate staffing cannot be assured, so students will still be learning remotely on Monday — with the expectation that students in pre-kindergarten, special education, and kindergarten-through-eighth grade students should be returning to in-person learning on Tuesday. A source told CBS 2 Political Investigator Dana Kozlov that if all teachers who are supposed to be in school do not show up and stay remote, lockout from Google classrooms will begin, on a rolling basis, beginning mid-day.

    SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro delivered a profanity-laced attack on the media Wednesday after reports that his administration spent $3 million on cans of condensed milk in 2020 sparked outrage and ridicule. The purchases triggered a debate over spending priorities weeks after he declined to extend a pandemic welfare program. Bolsonaro issued expletives and insults against journalists while addressing dozens of supporters at a restaurant in Brasilia, adding the 2.5 million cans of condensed milk, one of his favorite desserts, will feed more than 370,000 members of the armed forces, among others. “This (the cans of condensed milk) is to stick up your rears, you in the press!” Bolsonaro said in a video published on multiple social media channels, as his supporters and ministers cheered him on. “These frivolous accusations don’t take us anywhere. And if they accuse me of this, it’s because they have nothing...

Wallace, after touting her colleague Joe Scarborough’s “epic rant” against senators wanting to move on, said, “Republicans want to stand with Donald Trump on inciting an insurrection, knock yourself out. You’ll make the job of burning the party to the ground faster and easier.” She brought up a DHS warning today that read in part, “DHS does not have any information to indicate a specific, credible plot; however, violent riots have continued in recent days and we remain concerned that individuals frustrated with the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances and ideological causes...

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Dutch police said Wednesday that the fourth night of the Netherlands’ coronavirus curfew passed more peacefully than the previous three nights marred by rioting. Even so, officers arrested 131 people, mainly for public order offenses and incitement. “It was calmer around the curfew on Tuesday night than the days before,” police said in a statement.

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Senate planned to vote Tuesday on repealing Gov. Tony Evers’ statewide mask mandate, while it remained unclear whether the Assembly would follow suit as required to undo the order. A joint resolution cosponsored by 29 Republicans in the Legislature was up for approval in the Senate. It was the only item on the Senate’s agenda for Tuesday.

    A winter storm is headed for New York City on Tuesday — and could dump between 1 and 3 inches of snow on the Big Apple, forecasts show. Flakes are predicted to start flying ahead of sunrise Tuesday before picking up through the morning and then transitioning to a mix of snow, ice and rain in mid- to late morning, AccuWeather senior meteorologist Paul Walker told The Post on Monday. “It’s going to be a wet snow because of this situation,” Walker said. He noted that while “we’re not looking at a big snowstorm,” the precipitation coupled with cold temperatures could make things “icy.” “It’ll make for a slippery commute tomorrow morning,” explained Walker. The storm, which is moving in from the Ohio Valley, is expected to drop between 1 and 3 inches of snow in and around the city and between 3 and 6 inches north and west of...

    DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A federal magistrate refused Friday to set bond for an Ohio man charged with helping plot the attack on the U.S. Capitol. The Dayton judge said didn’t see a way to ensure public safety if she allowed Donovan Crowl, 50, out of jail. Magistrate Sharon Ovington cited the “very serious” nature of the charges and firearms that could be available to him. “The suggestion that I release him to a residence containing at least nine firearms is a nonstarter,” the magistrate said. The Dayton Daily News reported that Crowl’s court-appointed attorney contended he had little criminal history and had tried to rescue others during the Jan. 6 riots. Crowl on Tuesday became among the first suspects charged with conspiracy. Also charged was Jessica Watkins, 38, also of Champaign County, Ohio. Watkins remains held without bond in the Montgomery County jail. The FBI identified them as part...
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will deliver a House-passed impeachment article to the Senate Monday – kicking off a Senate trial for former President Donald Trump as President Joe Biden begins the first week of his presidency and seeks to get a cabinet confirmed and move his agenda. Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer announced Pelosi's move on the Senate floor Friday at the start of the day's session, after new Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell put out a proposal that would have delayed a trial until mid February in part to give Trump's legal team time to prepare. 'I have spoken to Speaker Pelosi who informed me that the articles will be delivered to the Senate on Monday.' Schumer listed impeachment along with other pressing business.  Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer announced Pelosi's decision to transmit an impeachment article to the Senate 'The Senate must and will do all three:...
    (CNN)Some Peruvian medics are going on hunger strike to demand more funding as cases of Covid-19 spiral in the country, according to a statement from Peru's Social Security National Medical Union (SINAMMSOP) published Wednesday.The health workers began their hunger strike Tuesday in front of Peru's Ministry of Labor in capital city Lima. About a dozen medics from the national social security union have been taking part in protests there as the health system struggles to cope with a second wave of Covid-19. "We have begun a hunger strike," said Teodoro Quinones, a doctor taking part in the protest, according to Reuters.Quinones said the strike would last until Peru's Labor Minister removes the head of the country's Health Social Security, Fiorella Molinelli, who oversees government efforts to set up temporary health and isolation centers for Covid-19 patients. As of Thursday, Molinelli, has not commented on the union's demands.Read MoreThe protesters have...
    SANTA CLARITA (CBSLA) — A Santa Clarita-area brush fire, dubbed the Towsley Fire, aggravated by strong winds was 17% contained on Wednesday evening. The fire, which was still at 167 acres at last check, was reported at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday near the 24000 block of The Old Road, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department. More than 300 firefighters were still on scene as of 3:30 p.m., officials said. “It is still windy and we’re concerned for the winds over the next day or so, however we are starting to get a good handle on it,” said fire department spokesman Sean Ferguson.

     President Joe Biden expects to sign 17 executive orders on his first evening in the White House, officials said. The text of the orders, which were not yet public as of Wednesday afternoon, will roll back certain policies implemented by his predecessor, in addition to instituting new policies Biden promised during his campaign. The orders are expected to, in part: Allow borrowers to forego making student loan payments until Sept. 30, an extension of a moratorium that has been in place since January through earlier executive orders signed by former President Donald Trump; Extend eviction and foreclosure moratoriums until March 31; Impose a “100 Days Masking Challenge,” which will require face coverings to be worn on all federal property; Facilitate the United States’ reentry into the Paris Climate Agreement, from which the U.S. withdrew in 2017 under Trump, just a year after it joined under President Barack Obama;...
    WASHINGTON (CBS SF) — On his first day in office, President-elect Joe Biden is expected to sign 17 executive actions — 15 will be executive orders, some of which will reverse decisions made by his predecessor, President Trump. The executive actions will make changes to the U.S. response to the COVID-19 pandemic and try to ease some of the financial strain placed on Americans resulting from the pandemic. But other executive actions directly target and undo Mr. Trump’s actions on the environment, immigration, the U.S. census, and regulatory changes. Mr. Biden will sign the executive actions in the Oval Office on Wednesday afternoon, incoming White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Tuesday night. Incoming top Biden White House advisers outlined and described the actions on a press call Tuesday evening, but the specific text of the executive orders and actions is not yet available. Biden aides...
    The sector is moving towards “a white season”. Indeed, “a reopening in mid or late February seems highly improbable,” said Mr. Lemoyne to the press, a few hours after a Defense Council and a videoconference meeting with mountain stakeholders. The representatives of the sector hoped for a reopening “to ensure the survival of the mountain ecosystem” and “to limit the social impact” on a sector which represents between 250,000 and 400,000 direct and indirect jobs. But the health situation is not improving. On Tuesday, the number of Covid-19 patients received in one day in the intensive care unit rose above 300, which had not been the case since November 19, at the end of the second wave. Over the past seven days, more than 10,000 new hospitalizations have been recorded, an indicator that is also improving. The level of hospital deaths remains stable, at 373 dead on Tuesday, for...

    A once large caravan of Honduran migrants that pushed its way into Guatemala last week had dissipated by Tuesday in the face of Guatemalan security forces. Small groups pressed on toward the Mexican border, while others accepted rides from authorities back to Honduras. Many of the migrants were driven by an increasingly desperate situation in Honduras, where the economic ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic and two major hurricanes in November have piled atop chronic poverty and gang violence. That combined with a hope that the new U.S. administration of President-elect Joe Biden would be more welcoming gave birth to the year's first caravan. GUATEMALAN FORCES CLEAR ROAD OF MIGRANTS BOUND FOR US, SOME AGREE TO RETURN TO HONDURAN BORDER But Tuesday, buses carrying dozens of migrants and police patrol vehicles carrying handfuls arrived sporadically through the morning at the Guatemala-Honduras border crossing of El Florido. They were passed from Guatemalan...

    Fox News host Sean Hannity turned on GOP Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday night for saying President Donald Trump provoked the violent riots on the Capitol building two weeks ago. Hannity's message was aimed squarely at to 'soon-to-be Minority Leader' McConnell and other 'establishment Republicans' for trying to take the GOP and move on from Trump. 'Establishment Republicans have no backbone, no principle, no courage, no vision. Too many politicians in D.C. are just far too willing to go along, get along, and protect the swamp and that is why conservatives like myself are tired of these empty promises and your rehearsed speeches and had never getting anything done.'  Fox News host Sean Hannity criticized Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday night for saying President Trump incited the U.S. Capitol riots Hannity accused establishment Republicans of having no backbone, courage or vision Hannity said that...
    Sen. John Cornyn on Tuesday pressed incoming White House press secretary Jen Psaki on how the Biden administration will handle the migrant caravan headed to the U.S. from Central America after she announced the new president would tighten international travel limits on the pandemic.  The exchange came after President Trump in an executive order Monday said that the U.S. would roll back travel restrictions imposed last year for air passengers who recently were in the United Kingdom, Europe and Brazil. The restrictions would be lifted on Jan. 26, the same date as a new requirement for a negative coronavirus test for air travelers into the United States would go into effect. The reasoning behind the lifting of the earlier restrictions, according to Trump's order, was that the U.S. can expect those jurisdictions to comply with the new requirement for a negative test.  BIDEN CONFRONTED WITH CARAVAN CHALLENGE AS HE TAKES OFFICE, GOP...

    Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley is blocking a move that would have provided speedy confirmation of Joe Biden's nominee to run the Homeland Security Department – after objecting to counting millions of votes that went to Biden. Hawley said Tuesday he would object to a move that would let the nomination of Alejandro Mayorkas go straight to the floor, allowing Biden to have a Homeland chief in place as soon as he takes office.  Hawley continues to face political blowback for his decision to join House Republicans in objecting to counting votes from Pennsylvania and Arizona that went to Biden. He voted not to accept them, a move that would have overturned the election results, even after a MAGA mob ransacked the Capitol on January 6 – infuriating Democrats and many Republicans. Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that Trump 'provoked' the mob with his remarks to supporters near...
    A group of asylum seekers waiting in Mexico is calling upon the incoming Biden administration to reverse President Trump’s signature policies on immigration, namely an end to the "Remain in Mexico Policy." The group spoke Tuesday at a virtual press conference organized by Pueblo Sin Fronteras, an immigration rights group known for organizing high-profile migrant caravans in Mexico and Central America. A four-minute video played reiterating demands outlined in an open letter to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. "We are confident that in your new administration, many of the proposals that you have made in your campaign related to the defense of migrants, will be put into practice, as soon as possible," the letter read. The organizers noted that thousands of families have, for more than a year, been waiting at the border in dangerous areas while their asylum requests are being processed....

    Beijing — It will soon be Day Ten of a meticulously slow mine rescue operation in China's eastern Shandong province. State media say 22 workers were trapped more than 2,000 feet underground after an explosion damaged the access shaft to the gold mine on January 10. Rescue efforts have pushed ahead since then, with workers drilling a series of small boreholes deep into the ground to reach the trapped miners, allowing them to send at least three rounds of food and medicine to them. It has also enabled the rescuers to communicate with the trapped men — first through handwritten notes and now via a telephone line. After an urgent initial request for medicine and pain killers, the miners on Tuesday asked for porridge and pickles to be sent down. Members of a rescue team work at the site of a gold mine explosion where 22 miners are trapped...

    The field of flags on the National Mall in preparation for the pandemic-era inauguration. Take a deep breath: It is the last full day of Donald Trump’s time in office. Trump’s entire official schedule for the day is, as it has been for weeks, “President Trump will work from early in the morning until late in the evening. He will make many calls and have many meetings.” But on this day, Trump is reportedly planning up to 100 pardons and commutations while he still can—though at least as of now, he’s seen as unlikely to try to pardon himself or his adult offspring. Trump also recorded a farewell video on Monday, so we have that to look forward to. Will it be attempting-to-seem-presidential Trump or aggrieved Trump or an unholy blend of the two? But the transition to better things continues, with President-elect Joe Biden arriving in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, where he’ll spend Tuesday night...

    Welcome back to the floor, Villanova. The third-ranked Wildcats have not played a game since Dec. 23 because of positive COVID-19 tests that ensnared coach Jay Wright and several other Tier 1 program members. But after having six games postponed following its win over Marquette, Villanova is set to play twice this week beginning with a game against Seton Hall on Tuesday night. “Everybody has dealt with this,” Wright said over the weekend. “We know this week we are playing Tuesday and Saturday (against Providence). That is about it. With Georgetown having gone down now, the Big East is looking at every option we can possibly have to look at our schedule going forward.” The first pause for the Wildcats (8-1, 3-0) came when the team returned from Christmas. They were cleared to practice on Jan. 3, only for another series of positive tests to arrive the following day. They...
    Bradley Cortright January 18, 2021 8 Comments In his last full day in office, President Donald Trump is reportedly planning to issue a final slew of around 100 pardons and commutations. CNN reported that White House officials met on Sunday to hammer out the details of the final list of pardons, which they expect the president to announce on Tuesday. Trump’s term will end at noon on January, 20. The network reports that the president is planning to issue “a mix of criminal justice reform-minded pardons” and pardons for political allies.

    President Donald Trump is planning to issue a massive pile of pardons on Tuesday, his last full day in office, according to a report by CNN. White House reporter Jeremy Diamond told The Situation Room anchor Wolf Blitzer that three sources familiar with Trump’s plans told him that the president intended to pardon about 100 people. “The pardons, we’re told,” Diamond said, “are expected to include a mixture of more controversial pardons to white collar criminals, high profile rappers, as well as potentially some of the president’s political allies, but also in this batch several pardons that are more criminal justice reform minded,” like his commutation of Alice Marie Johnson’s sentence in 2018. Diamond also reported that Trump has apparently taken his advisers’ counsel and is not planning to pardon any of the Capitol rioters or attempt to pardon himself — or, “at least the paperwork for a self-pardon has not yet been drawn up.” “We know the president has been considering these...

The Metro-North worker who called out sick from his job to storm the US Capitol with throngs of President Trump supporters last week was released from custody on $10,000 bond Wednesday. Will Pepe, 31, of Beacon, will be forced to turn over his shotgun and a hunting knife as part of the bail package — and has to stay away from the nation’s capital while he is out, a federal judge in White Plains ordered.
