to Joe Biden:

    In his early days in power, Biden is stressing that the government must urgently address the coronavirus crisis, after his predecessor Donald Trump downplayed it. More than 400,000 Americans have died from the virus and millions of jobs have been lost. Biden said his stimulus package to deal with the economic effects of the pandemic has the support of businesses, workers, Wall Street and Main Street. “Much of America is suffering. The virus is spreading … Families are starving. People are at risk of being evicted. Job losses are on the rise again. We have to act. You look at it. however you look at it, we have to act, “Biden said. Republican lawmakers have questioned the amount of aid for the pandemic and a separate investment proposal for infrastructure, green energy projects, education and research. Brian Deese, director of the White...
    At the time of Joe Biden’s inauguration, return to John Fitzgerald Kennedy; the 35th President of the United States who was sworn in just 60 years ago. A political model for some, historians nevertheless strive to qualify the “Kennedy myth”. As Joe Biden became the 46th President of the United States on Wednesday, one can’t help but compare them. Sixty years separate the nomination of Joe Biden from that of John Fitzgerald Kennedy (JFK). Both Democrats, both Catholics, both of Irish descent. The second will push the first to enter politics, the rest is written. But unlike Biden, Kennedy was not predestined for a career in politics. He who was moving towards journalism had to review his plans in the face of family ambitions.
    For the last four years the Trump administration has been at war with many things and many people, but one thread that’s been continuous throughout is their obsessive desire to destroy the government they failed to run. Over the last four years, the entire Republican Party has often seemed against government intervention or government anything, including government doing its job. Donald Trump has spent more time breaking the government than trying to fix it. He went to war with the Post Office, he declared COVID to be the states’ problem, and he refused to enact the Defense Production Act, which would have been an easy win for Trump. This anti-government government has been a particularly problematic way to run a country during a pandemic when Americans desperately need the government to roll out the vaccine and get a plan together to put said vaccine in people’s arms. Luckily, the guy...
    The state of Texas filed suit Friday seeking to block President Joe Biden’s 100-day freeze on deportations, claiming it violated an agreement the state signed with the Trump administration earlier this month, officials announced. “I told @DHSgov and @JoeBiden last night to rescind its deportation freeze, which is unconstitutional, illegal, and bad for Texas and the nation,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a tweet Friday. “They didn’t budge. So #Texas is bringing them to court.” After Biden was sworn in as president on Wednesday, the Department of Homeland Security “ordered a halt of nearly all deportations of illegal aliens including those whose removal was ordered following a full and fair hearing and those who are not entitled — and do not claim to be entitled — to further immigration benefits,” the Texas Federal suit alleges. Meanwhile, DHS signed an agreement with Texas on Jan. 8 to work together...
    You may have missed it, but Joe Biden devoted part of his very first day in office to addressing one of this nation's most pressing problems: Girls' sports. The main problem with girls' sports, obviously, is that they lack diversity: Only girls get to play. That's wrong, and Joe Biden plans to fix it; to break the turf ceiling, if you will. Now, for the first time in history, men will be allowed to compete in, for example, girls' field hockey, and then change in the girls' locker room afterward. Joe Biden has signed an executive order requiring it. Even Barack Obama didn't do that. This makes Joe Biden a #civilrightshero. There's been a lot of talk recently about women's empowerment, but it takes a real leader, a once-in-a-generation moral visionary, to go further than that and use federal power to humiliate and endanger women on behalf of biological men. That is next-level...

    President Joe Biden on Friday lowered expectations of his administration’s ability to affect the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in the coming months. Biden made the remark during a press conference addressing the signage of two more executive orders: one aimed at increasing food stamp benefits and the other for workers’ rights.  “If we fail to act, there will be a wave of evictions and foreclosures in the coming months as this pandemic rages on,” Biden said. “There’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.” .@JoeBiden: “There’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.” pic.twitter.com/t3NEs1Enwf — Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) January 22, 2021 Biden’s remark comes after the president signed an order mandating both masks and social distancing on federal property — a directive he and members of his family appear to have violated shortly after enacting...

    Joe Biden is set to leave his presidential limo ‘The Beast’ in the US when he attends the G7 summit in Cornwall because it could get stuck in the county’s narrow and winding roads. The US President will come to Carbis Bay in June for what could be his first overseas trip in office. It is expected he will be driven around the seaside resort, just along the coast from St Ives, in a smaller armoured SUV rather than his immense official car. The Beast is the nickname for the specially built £1.1million Cadillac with 5in-thick bulletproof windows in which the president travels. Encased in ballistic armour and weighing about nine tons, it contains a sealed cabin with an oxygen supply and bags of blood matching the president’s type in case of a medical emergency. The President is expected to leave his £1.1million custom-made Cadillac which is encased in...
    Joe Biden’s United States wants to return to the Iran nuclear deal. But trust is broken, the path twisted and time is running out. Decoding Joe Biden has many crises to deal with. But internationally, the new American president points to three urgencies: to return to the Paris agreement on the climate and to the WHO, as well as to reinstate the Iranian nuclear agreement. For the first two, it is done from day one, by signing a piece of paper (let’s be good accounts, many climate policies still need to be put in place). The third is not satisfied with an initial at the bottom of a text.
    Pro-life leaders heavily criticized President Joe Biden on Friday, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, after the Catholic president vowed to “codify” the 1973 Supreme Court ruling.  The move triggered condemnations from many pro-life leaders, particularly since Biden is the second Catholic president and the Catholic Church explicitly opposes abortion as a “crime against human life.” “Joe Biden repeatedly insists he is a devout Catholic,” tweeted Live Action founder and President Lila Rose. “He used this claim frequently during his campaign. He just released a statement praising Roe v Wade, but wouldn’t even use the word ‘abortion.'” Pro-life leaders heavily criticized President Joe Biden on Friday, the anniversary of Roe v.

    President Joe Biden undercut the leadership of his own party in the United States Senate on Friday by signaling his continuing opposition to scrapping the legislative filibuster. White House press secretary Jennifer Psaki was asked during a briefing if Biden still believed the filibuster should remain in tact even as members of Senate Democrat leadership are refusing to explicitly rule out getting rid of the maneuver. “The president’s position hasn’t changed,” Psaki said, but added that Biden’s immediate focus is working with Senate leaders on tackling the novel coronavirus pandemic. “I will say that he’s conveyed in conversations … that he is eager to move his rescue plan forward. He is eager to get relief to the American public. … He wants it to be a bipartisan bill.” When pushed on the topic, Psaki asserted that Biden had “spoken to this many times” and his stance “has not changed.” The White...
    Paul M. Davis, the Texas lawyer who was fired from his in-house counsel job after he recorded himself among a mob at the U.S. Capitol Complex on Jan. 6, has filed legal documents which set a new floor for legal embarrassment in U.S. jurisprudence. The documents employ a series of awkward references to — and ideas from — the temporary government of the Kingdom of Gondor in The Lord of the Rings. Davis’s lawsuit bombastically attempts to assert that Joe Biden is not a legitimate president and that a rightful heir to that office will someday return. Until then, the case foolishly argues that a federal judge might be able to appoint a group of “stewards” from the cabinet of former President Donald Trump to run most of the government from the White House. That should occur, the lawsuit lawlessly speculates, after the Secret Service escorts Biden and his wife out...

    President Joe Biden is planning to add a domestic terrorism team to the White House National Security Council in response to the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. The move places the new team just two steps from the commander in chief, below the national security adviser.

    American rapper Cardi B, who never shies away from speaking her mind, recently joked on Twitter that she was supposed to be among the performers at Joe Biden’s inauguration ceremony.

    More than one million COVID-19 vaccines were given out in the United States yesterday as Joe Biden - just two days into his presidency - laid out his 'full scale war-time' plan to reach that exact goal. Biden has been touting for several weeks now how he will aim to have 100 million Americans inoculated within his first 100 days in office. Yet just one day after his inauguration, the US recorded 1.3 million COVID-19 vaccines. The seven-day rolling average for new COVID-19 vaccines being administered is already at 940,000 a day. It came as Biden signed a new executive order on Thursday to speed up vaccine delivery and doubled-down on his plan to hand out one million doses per day. He did not address that the Trump administration had already been on that trajectory to boost the number of shots closer to the one million mark. President Joe Biden,...
    President Joe Biden marked the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and committed to appointing judges who respect the ruling as precedent Friday.

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough lashed out Friday at Fox News and former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich for claiming that Democrats wanted to “exterminate” Republicans. Scarborough referenced Gingrich’s appearance on “Hannity” the night before, saying, “Fox News had someone I know, a former leader of the Republican party, saying that Democrats wanted, and I’m using his words here, Democrats wanted to, quote, exterminate, exterminate all Republicans.” (RELATED: ‘One Thing That Biden Has Had Is Cover’: Joe Scarborough Says Trump-Centric Coverage Gave Biden A Pass) WATCH: “This is sick.

    New York : The president, Joe Biden, will sign this Friday two executive orders aimed mainly at speed up the delivery of aid checks to the families most in need and increase food aid for children that, in normal times, depend on school meals, the White House announced. Biden also seeks to clear the way for federal workers to have a minimum wage of $ 15 an hour. [Biden lanza un plan de acción ante la pandemia con 10 órdenes ejecutivas para más vacunas, mascarillas y la reapertura de escuelas] These executive orders are an interim measure for millions of families as Congress evaluates its $ 1.9 trillion relief plan to help those affected by the pandemic. “The American people cannot afford to wait,” said Brian Deese, director of the White House National Economic Council. “Many are hanging by a thread.

    President Joe Biden will sign another round of executive orders on Friday, these aimed at providing assistance for those facing food insecurity, protecting American workers and providing economic relief to struggling families.  Biden kicked off his presidency with a series of orders aimed at undoing much of President Donald Trump's legacy and helping those devastated by the coronavirus pandemic. On Friday he will sign executive orders aimed at speeding up delivery of stimulus checks to families who haven't received them and increasing food aid for children who normally rely on school meals as a main source of food.  He will also direct his administration to start the work that would allow him to issue an executive order to require federal contractors to pay a $15 minimum wage to their employees. The federal minimum wage has been at $7.25 an hour since 2009. President Joe Biden will sign executive orders aimed...
    ROME—If you look closely at President Joe Biden’s credenza in his first Oval Office photo op, there is a carefully placed shot of the then-vice president shaking hands with Pope Francis after he was crowned pope in 2013. Biden flew to Rome for the papal coronation—and has regularly quoted the pontiff on the campaign trail, especially on race and economic disparities. And yet the placement of photo immediately drew ire among conservative Catholics, many of whom posted on social media that it was “opportunistic” to display a photo with the pope and still support abortion and LGBTQ rights. Many among the most conservative anti-Francis Catholic commentators have gone so far as to say Biden is complicit in the further destruction of the Catholic church but the Vatican is not likely to comment on matters seen as political. Those who have long-criticized this pope for opening up a dialogue on both...

    If Joe Biden wants a Diet Coke while he’s working in the Oval Office, he will apparently have to get it himself. As The Week reported, the new president appears to have removed a prominent feature in the working space for predecessor Donald Trump — a button that Trump reportedly had installed to have a Diet Coke brought to him whenever he pressed it. Reports indicated that Trump was a fan of the caffeinated drink, consuming several daily and even putting a little red button on his desk that would summon a butler to bring him the drink on a silver platter. But pictures from Biden’s first full day in office showed that the button apparently disappeared as the outgoing president moved out of Washington, D.C., and to his new permanent home in Florida. Once placed directly next to Trump’s telephone, the button was now gone, the images showed. President...

    President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill were momentarily left standing in the cold on Inauguration Day after the front doors of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue weren't opened for them – a breach of protocol caused by the firing of the chief usher of the White House hours earlier. With the world watching on, the 46th US President and his wife walked up the steps of their new home for the first time on Wednesday, as a small crowd of family members followed behind. The couple posed for photos outside the large wooden doors of the North Portico, waiving to the crowd as a military band played ‘Hail to the Chief’ nearby. They then embraced one another, before turning to venture on inside. But there was a problem: the doors didn’t open.

    Mitch McConnell has accused Joe Biden of being headed in 'the wrong direction' on his first full day in office. McConnell, who until the Senate switched hands on Wednesday was the Majority Leader, said that he had been unimpressed with the initial actions of Biden, who he has known for decades, and accused him of being beholden to a Left-wing fringe of his party.

It comes just one day after Biden was sworn into office.  Greene was on Sunday temporarily suspended from Twitter. She has previously expressed racist views and support for QAnon conspiracy theories online. She said in a statement Thursday:  'President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of the presidency.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — On the COVID-19 front, President Joe Biden will have some tough challenges. For instance, more immunizations, perhaps with help from FEMA or the National Guard. “It’s critical that we vaccinate as many people as possible. And to do that, we’re going to need some help,” says Dr. Ray Pontzer, treasurer of the Allegheny County Medical Society and an infectious diseases physician at UPMC. “The idea to set up mass vaccination stations that can be manned by federal help will be really beneficial.” Currently, because of certain storage issues, the burden falls on hospitals. And supplies are limited. “They’re already stressed taking care of patients and really bulging at the seams with patients,” Dr. Pontzer said. Improving the supply chain is another hurdle — whether it’s vaccines, testing supplies or personal protective equipment. “The PPE is better now than it was in the springtime, so that has ramped...

    President Joe Biden said Thursday that he expected the coronavirus pandemic to get worse for months. “Things are going to continue to get worse before they get better,” Biden said, noting again that he expected a “dark winter” of coronavirus cases and deaths. He predicted 500,000 deaths in the United States from the virus and that it would take months to turn around the pandemic. “We didn’t get into this mess overnight and it’s going to take months for us to turn things around,” he said. Biden assured Americans that he would take the coronavirus more seriously, raising up a 198-page plan for everyone to see, boasting that it was based on “facts” and “data.” The president signed over ten executive order documents that he promised would help combat the pandemic. Biden spoke for several minutes about the pandemic but said that in the future he would rely more on...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi referred to major immigration legislation that the White House is proposing as 'basic principles' to work from. She talked up the proposal after the administration released a four-page fact sheet on its plan, which would allow undocumented immigrants to apply for citizenship after an eight-year period.   Major immigration changes are one area where the White House must secure cooperation from Congress to achieve results, even as Biden sets a new tone with a flurry of executive orders in a range of areas. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she was 'pleased' with the Administration's immigration proposal 'We were also pleased to see the president come forward, the administration come forward with an immigration proposal,' Pelosi told reporters Thursday.

    New York (CNN Business)President Joe Biden wants to restore America's faith in its democracy. He's starting by repairing the government's broken relationship with the press, the reporters of truth responsible for holding politicians accountable.Former President Donald Trump and his administration were at war with facts. In his routine effort to spread falsehoods big and small, Trump labeled the press as "the enemy of the people," regularly riling up his supporters to attack the media, and avoiding facing the press at daily briefings — in one stretch, for nearly a year.In stark contrast, Biden made a concerted effort in his first moments in office to reset the White House's relationship with reporters. Biden referenced truth several times in his inaugural address Wednesday, and Press Secretary Jen Psaki held her first briefing just seven hours into the new presidency.The inaugural address"We must reject the culture where facts themselves are manipulated — and...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said Thursday President Joe Biden “will be revoking the Mexico City Policy,” which the Trump administration expanded to prohibit organizations overseas that receive U.S. health assistance funding from promoting or performing abortions. As Breitbart News reported, Fauci announced Biden had signed a letter reversing former President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from and stop funding the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) – a supporter of global abortion rights. National Review reported Fauci announced to the W.H.O. that Biden “will be revoking the Mexico City Policy in the coming days,” thereby allowing U.S. taxpayer money to fund abortions overseas. Biden’s base, which includes Planned Parenthood and other members of the abortion lobby, created a “Blueprint for Sexual and Reproductive Health, Rights and Justice” in which the abortion rights activists spelled out their demands that Biden immediately undo the pro-life policies of the Trump administration. Among those pro-life policies is the Mexico...

    President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris took the quadrennial post-inauguration walk to the White House, and reporters covered themselves in glory with the regularly-scheduled shouting of questions. Which was the dopiest? You decide. I say this with love, and as a reporter who has shouted many a dopey question at presidents and others, full in the knowledge that inaugural walk questions are a special subgenre of journalism that’s badly stacked against dignity. You’ve got to kiss any sense of shame goodbye just to get their attention, and then you need to think of something they can answer in 5 seconds. It’s not a recipe for incisiveness. Having said all that, there’s no reason we can’t all have a good laugh. First up is the absolute master of the form, NBC’s Al Roker, who just Rokered it, screaming, “Mr. President! Mr. President! Mr. President! Dr. Biden! Mr. President! How...
    Then-candidate Joe Biden joins members of the Culinary Workers Union on a picket line, February 2020 President Joe Biden has long branded himself as a union guy, Joe from Scranton who represented the worker. The reality of his policies—especially as a senator from credit card company mecca Delaware—and his personnel decisions has been more mixed. But the early signs from his presidential administration have many labor advocates and progressive economists excited. First off, Biden didn’t wait on a key union priority: getting rid of National Labor Relations Board general counsel Peter Robb. On Inauguration Day, Biden requested Robb's resignation, and when Robb refused, Biden fired him. Robb had 10 months left in his term, but worker advocates felt—and Biden apparently agreed—that the extreme anti-worker agenda he was bringing to the role was such that 10 months was way too long. Robb is a longtime union-busting lawyer who, as NLRB counsel, let McDonald’s off...
    As President Joe Biden was sworn in Wednesday in Washington, Pennsylvania officials offered congratulations to the Scranton native. “Today a scrappy kid from Scranton will become the 46th president of the United States,” said Gov. Tom Wolf. “Looking forward to getting to work rebuilding our economy, fighting the spread of COVID-19, and realizing the vision of a better future for everyone." Biden takes office two weeks after a mob gathered in support of former President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol, interrupting a joint session of Congress convened to verify the results of the 2020 election. Biden spoke of unity in his inaugural address before heading to the Oval Office to undo a handful of his predecessor’s executive orders. “On this January day, my whole soul is in this: Bringing America together, uniting our people, uniting our nation,” Biden said he addressed the nation for the first time...
    The South Carolina senator claims he 'can't get over' unfounded allegations against the president's son, drummed up by Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani. GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC) is refusing to let go of unfounded allegations about Joe Biden's son Hunter. Shortly after Biden's inauguration on Wednesday, Graham suggested in a CBS News interview that in order to "heal the nation," Hunter needed to be "looked at." Referring to President Biden, Graham said, "I like you, I want to work with you. But nobody hesitated to send a wrecking ball to the Trump family. So all I can say is if you want to heal the nation, we need to start anew." 
    Republican Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton appeared on a Thursday’s broadcast of “Fox and Friends” and called for the use of force to combat violence from antifa mobs that have been operating in some cities. Host Steve Doocy said that the groups seen committing acts of violence in Seattle, Portland and Denver following President Joe Biden’s inauguration didn’t seem to like Biden or law enforcement, and want “aggressive” changes to immigration and climate change policy. “Yeah, Steve, just a few months ago I remember the media and Democrats blaming all this antifa violence on Donald Trump. Yet here we have Joe Biden in the White House and antifa is still rampaging in the street of Portland and Seattle and Denver,” Cotton responded. “This proves a point I made months ago, proves the point I made two weeks ago, is that when you have a mob using violence for political ends, it...
    The world's media has struck an optimistic tone in reaction to Joe Biden's inauguration with the overwhelming majority of newspaper front pages across the globe emblazoned with the 46th president's words: 'Democracy has prevailed'.  In the United States, the front pages of major outlets are today largely filled with Biden's call for unity in the wake of the deadly insurrection at the US Capitol at the hands of violent Trump-supporting rioters on January 6.  Biden's inauguration, however, stretched far beyond Washington DC and the rest of the US with photos from his inauguration splashed across newspaper front pages across the world.  The front pages focused on Biden's words that urged Americans to 'end this uncivil war' and his vow that 'we will get through this together' following a divisive election and four years under Donald Trump.  Newspapers were filled with images of Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris taking their...

    The official Twitter account of the U.S. Embassy in Israel changed its name following the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris from “U.S. Ambassador to Israel” to “U.S. Ambassador to Israel, the West Bank and Gaza” — but changed it back hours later. The change in title sparked an uproar on Twitter after the Washington Free Beacon first highlighted it. With speculation rife that it may indicate a shift in U.S. foreign policy under Biden, it was quietly changed back hours later.

    President Joe Biden will sign a series of executive orders and take other actions Thursday intended to dramatically expand vaccine production and distribution – to push forward his goal of vaccinating 100 million Americans in his first 100 days in office. The actions and orders are the beginning of an effort to revamp the administration's policy to push out the vaccine, with 400,000 Americans already having succumbed to COVID-19, and new mutations already spreading in the country. Biden is also depending on Congress to provide $1.9 trillion for economic relief and COVID-19 response. There are a litany of complaints from states that say they are not getting enough vaccine even as they are being asked to vaccinate a broader swath of Americans.  With supply falling well short of demand and many Americans ignoring guidance to avoid travel and social contacts, the Biden team wants to establish new vaccination centers in...
    Downing Street today insisted it is up to Joe Biden how he decorates the Oval Office after the new US President appeared to have removed a bust of Sir Winston Churchill.  The same bust was also removed by Barack Obama when he took office in a move which Boris Johnson, who counts the wartime leader as one of his heroes, previously suggested could be viewed as a 'snub' to the UK.  The item was then reinstated by Donald Trump when he moved in but Mr Biden has apparently opted to get rid of it again. Number 10 this afternoon sidestepped the question of whether it is a 'snub' as the Prime Minister's Official Spokesman said: 'The Oval Office is the President's private office and it is up to the President to decorate it as he wishes.'  The spokesman added: 'We are in no doubt about the importance President Biden puts on...

    The U.S. Chamber of Commerce says its corporate members can create jobs for Americans if President Joe Biden’s amnesty and migration bill provides them with “the world’s most talented and industrious people.” The chamber made the January 20 press statement as it applauded Biden’s draft “U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021” that would dramatically accelerate the inflow of foreign workers into Americans’ blue-collar and white-collar jobs. The statement said: The changes proposed in President Biden’s legislative plan would help many businesses meet their critical workforce needs. Having the world’s most talented and industrious people contribute to our economy drives growth, and in turn, creates jobs for hardworking Americans. “Nobody believes that,” responded Jessica Vaughan, policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies. The chamber’s companies have shown they want to bring in lower-skilled compliant migrants to take the support jobs created by higher-skilled migrants, even though millions of creative, hard-working, and...
    A host of U.N. agencies lined up Thursday to applaud Joe Biden’s ascension to the White House, scarcely suppressing their glee that U.S. taxpayer dollars will once more be flowing their way. First off the mark was the World Health Organization which had previously faced blistering criticism from the outgoing administration for its maladminstration of the response to the coronavirus pandemic. President Donald Trump pulled funding from the W.H.O. last November because of the organization’s role in “mismanaging and covering up the spread of the coronavirus” during its early stages, a move that slowed the world’s response. President Joe Biden’s top medical adviser on COVID-19, Dr. Anthony Fauci, announced an immediate return to the body late Wednesday night along with the flow of cash. Fauci said the Biden administration “will cease the drawdown of U.S. staff seconded to the WHO” and resume “regular engagement” with WHO. “The United States also intends to fulfil its...

    One of the gifts given to President Biden by members of Congress on Wednesday was an “optimistic” Civil War-era painting by a black landscape artist. Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and first lady Jill Biden presented Robert S. Duncanson’s 1859 work “Landscape With Rainbow” during the inaugural gift-giving ceremony. “For a black artist, painting this painting that’s so much like an American utopia on the verge of a war that we would fight over slavery, makes all of that even more interesting,” Blunt noted. “While he faced lots of challenges, obviously [he] was optimistic, even in 1859, about America.”  The work was on loan from Smithsonian American Art Museum, which describes Cincinnati-based painter Duncanson as the “best known African American painter in the years surrounding the Civil War.” President Joe Biden and first lady Dr. Jill Biden presented the painting from Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) as Vice President Kamala Harris and...

'We should know specifically and precisely who exactly he has declared war on. We have a right to know that.  'Innocent people could be hurt in this war. They usually are. 'There could be collateral damage in this war. And the casualties will be Americans. So again, what is a white supremacist? You might be surprised to learn just how broad the definition for that has become.'  Carlson's comments came on the day Democrat Biden was officially sworn into office, denouncing 'political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront and we will defeat'.  But Carlson said the media is...

    Fox News Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.Out of Joe Biden’s entire inaugural speech, Tucker Carlson is dedicating tonight’s program to attacking this sentence: And now, a rise in political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront and we will defeat. Seriously, this is the part he objects to. Apparently Tucker took the mention of white supremacy personally, and even claimed to have no idea who the Proud Boys are. Eventually he moved on to Biden’s opposition to domestic terrorism, which he also takes offense at because . . . something something. As near as I could tell, Tucker’s message to his viewers was that Biden plans to use all this as a thin excuse to silence and lock up anyone who watches Fox News. Four more years of...

Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and first lady Jill Biden presented Robert S. Duncanson’s 1859 work “Landscape With Rainbow” during the inaugural gift-giving ceremony. “For a black artist, painting this painting that’s so much like an American utopia on the verge of a war that we would fight over slavery, makes all of that even more interesting,” Blunt noted. “While he faced lots of challenges, obviously [he] was optimistic, even in 1859, about America.”  The work...

    In the first few hours of taking office, President Joe Biden restarted immigration to the United States from countries that are known by the State Department to harbor and export terrorism. After being sworn in, Biden signed an executive order Wednesday that revokes President Trump’s constitutional travel ban from 2017 that barred nearly all immigration from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Venezuela, North Korea, Nigeria, Myanmar, Eritrea, Sudan, Tanzania, and Kyrgyzstan. Trump’s order, ruled constitutional in a 5-4 U.S. Supreme Court decision, included countries that either do not share critical national security data or have been found to harbor and sponsor terrorists. The State Department, for example, designates North Korea, Iran, Sudan, and Syria as “state sponsors of terrorism.” Biden’s order ends the travel ban, allowing foreign nationals from the 13 countries to again begin immigrating to the U.S. The order also instructs the State Department to start issuing visas to nationals...
    President Joe Biden reversed an order by former President Donald Trump that excluded illegal aliens in the census numbers used to determine each state’s share of congressional seats and Electoral College votes. On his first day in office, President Biden reversed a Trump order so that illegal aliens will now be required to be included in the census numbers used to decide how many lawmakers represent each state in Congress. In December, Biden foreshadowed this move when he claimed that the U.S. Constitution “clearly requires” illegal aliens to be counted for the purpose of apportioning congressional districts in states. But in a 6-3 decision last month, the U.S. Supreme Court threw out a legal challenge by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the state of New York against Trump’s effort to exclude illegal aliens from congressional apportionment counts. The United States Census Bureau has already stopped tallying the number of illegal aliens living in...
