    President Joe Biden’s assumption of office may have revived a plan by Congressional Democrats to push through a spending boost for the International Monetary Fund (IMF) that critics argue would ultimately provide China with billions of dollars.
    Democratic legislators of the House of Representatives prepare a project that would allow to send up to $ 3,600 per child to millions of Americans, as lawmakers intend to change the tax code to target child poverty rates as part of the billionaire President Joe Biden’s Stimulus Package. The proposal expand the child tax credit to provide $ 3,600 per child under 6 and $ 3,000 per child up to 17 over the course of a year, phasing out payments for Americans who earn more than $ 75,000 and couples who earn more than $ 150,000. « The pandemic is driving families into deepening poverty, and it is devastating, » said Rep. Richard E. Neal of Massachusetts, chair of the Ways and Means Committee and one of the advocates of the provision. Tributary credit “This money will be the difference in a roof over someone’s...
    Ex-Parler CEO John Matze says he didn’t want to do business with Donald Trump because he worried the former president might bend the social network to his will. Parler — a right-wing rival to Twitter that was forced offline a month ago — offered Trump’s real-estate company a 40 percent stake in the business if he made the platform his primary social media home, BuzzFeed News reported Friday. But Matze, who was leading Parler at the time, told Axios that he thought the arrangement would put the startup between a rock and a hard place while the commander-in-chief was still in office. The deal was never finalized. “I didn’t like the idea of working with Trump, because he might have bullied people inside the company to do what he wanted,” Matze, who was recently fired as Parler’s chief executive, told the outlet. “But I was worried that if we didn’t...

    Soldiers were sent to Arkansas to protect nine Black students attending the Central High School of Little Rock on Sept. 25, 1959. This was five years after the landmark Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision ruled racial segregation unconstitutional in schools. A Utah public charter school is backtracking after initially considering it a good idea to allow parents to opt out of Black History Month activities for their children. As if it’s not heartbreaking enough that many schools relegate Black history education to a single month (if teaching it at all), Maria Montessori Academy Director Micah Hirokawa explained in a Facebook post on Saturday that opt-out forms were sent to parents after they received requests for the allowance.  “We are grateful that families that initially had questions and concerns have willingly come to the table to resolve any differences and at this time no families are opting out of...

    Meghan Markle won't come to the UK this summer because she 'doesn't want to be away from Archie', the author of her biography Finding Freedom has claimed. The Duchess of Sussex, 39, who is currently living in her $14million mansion in California having stepped back from her royal duties last year, does not plan to  accompany Prince Harry, 36, when he visits his family for the first time since Megxit, according to royal insiders.  Omid Scobie said current travel plans were 'up in the air' due to the Covid-19 crisis, but that it is 'easier for the Duke to do the trip solo'.

    The expulsions announced on Friday were seen as a snub in Europe, they came on the day of a visit to Moscow by the head of European diplomacy. “Russia was and remains interested in reviving relations between Moscow and Brussels,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday. But “the expulsion of diplomats (…) is the consequence of the actions undertaken by certain foreign missions in Moscow, in a context of illegal disturbances. Russia has clearly shown that it does not intend to tolerate this”, a- he added. Russia accused these German, Polish and Swedish representatives of having participated in an illegal demonstration in support of Alexeï Navalny to justify their expulsion from Russia. Mr Peskov promised to “act very decisively” in the event of “interference”. “But that does not mean that we want to move away and further worsen relations (…) on the contrary, we have an interest...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A prowler has been terrorizing women in Sacramento, and one victim claims police may have tracked down the serial peeper and let him go. A woman who lives in midtown, but does not want to be identified, claims she was followed by a man last Friday while she was walking around her neighborhood. The man allegedly started lurking from across the street and then started following her from behind. The woman said she even got out her taser and threatened him with it, but said he continued to pursue her. “I was scared. This guy kept approaching me, even with the taser. This guy is not scared of the taser,” she said. “Only when I threatened to call the police did he turn and walk away.” She immediately called the police, who found the man still in the area. The man was detained, while the police had...
    (CBS4) – As the pandemic drags on, more Coloradans are finding themselves without work, and some of them without any money. Just last week, nearly 11,000 Coloradans filed unemployment claims. Since the pandemic started in March, more than 1 million people have filed. The state has paid out nearly $7 billion in benefits. Some Coloradans are still waiting for some financial relief. Frustrated Coloradans have planned a protest in downtown Denver on Monday in which they will call for the state to do something about it.    Organizers Chris, Cherie and Brittany told CBS4’s Andrea Flores they were strangers until they met on a Colorado Unemployment Assistance community Facebook group.   “We’re at the point where we have to help each other, “each other” are the only people that we have at this point,” said Cherie.     In Monday’s demonstration, which is scheduled to start at 11 a.m., they...
    Andy Ngo, journalist and author of the recent statement « Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy, » told NTD that Antifa is not going away simply because former President Donald Trump has left office. Speaking about his investigation into the internal mechanics and goals of Antifa, Ngo said that Antifa capitalized on claims in 2016 that Trump’s term was a fascist regime to claim his group was trying to oppose American fascism. But according to Ngo, « That was always just a pretext for them to cause misery and carry out killings and attacks, » Ngo said. « Now, they say they are simply opposing the United States, because the United States defends systems of fascism that are interconnected with white supremacy and racism. » Andy Ngo. (NTD) Ngo said the perception that Antifa was fading with the announcement of a Biden election victory was incorrect. “They rioted in Portland, for example,...
    (CNN)It is common that many politicians grow more popular once they leave office. That has not been the case for former President Donald Trump. On the eve of his impeachment trial in front of the Senate, new polling reveals that more Americans want him convicted than at any point during his first impeachment trial a year ago. More amazingly, more want Trump barred from holding national office ever again than had even an unfavorable rating of any president after one term in office. A new ABC News/Ipsos poll released Sunday shows that 56% of Americans are in favor of the Senate convicting Trump and barring him from holding federal office in the future. Just 43% are opposed to such an action. This is merely the latest poll to find a clear plurality for such a measure, even after Trump left office. A Monmouth University poll taken at the end of...

    Getty A nurse prepares to inject a Covid-19 vaccine at Howard University Hospital in Washington, DC, on December 15, 2020. The first mRNA vaccines approved for use in humans — the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines — are being rolled out around the world. These vaccines deliver mRNA, coated in lipid (fat), into cells. Once inside, your body uses instructions in the mRNA to make SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins. The immune response protects around 95% of people vaccinated with either vaccine from developing COVID-19. Such mRNA vaccines have many benefits. They are quick to design, so once the manufacturing platform is set up, mRNA vaccines can be designed to target different viruses, or variants, very quickly. The vaccine manufacturing is also fully synthetic, and doesn’t rely on living cells like chicken eggs, or cultured cell lines. So this technology is here to stay. However, there are still issues...
    A group of asylum seekers said that they will leave the United Kingdom to go back to the EU, complaining about the supposed racism of being provided with free taxpayer-funded accommodation at former British Army barracks. In the wake of record-breaking illegal boat migration from France across the English Channel, the Home Office was forced to house some migrants in two former military barracks, one in Wales and the other in Folkestone, Kent. Following weeks of protests at the Napier Barracks in Kent, culminating in a group of asylum seekers allegedly setting fire to the facility, migrants have complained to the media about the supposedly poor conditions in the camp — which used to be home to uncomplaining British soldiers. Speaking to the left-wing Independent website, a migrant from Syria said that he has been trying to escape the United Kingdom to Continental Europe on a lorry, claiming he is...
    NBA : By Eurohoops Team / info@eurohoops.net Ahmet Kandemir, the head coach of Beşiktaş Icrypex, one of the teams of ING Basketball Super League, made a statement to the club television. The experienced trainer spoke at length about the project they created this season: “First of all, our work is not a very popular job in Turkish sports. There were teams made with models that were constantly transferred and changed teams. When you look at the history of Beşiktaş, there is a system with similar features. We had done a similar organization before in 2000 as well. We only played with local players and had similar success. We finished the league 7th and we were on the playoffs. When we considered this process, we had a high budget team. Since we did not have such an income economically, we had payment difficulties. We wanted to...

    On Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Cavuto Live,” Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) stated that it is “less and less likely” that there will be a bipartisan deal on coronavirus relief, and that Democrats want to “chip away at the Trump tax cuts that have been so successful.” Wicker said, “I think we’re less and less likely to get a deal now. We had the vote-o-rama that lasted all night on Thursday night, and really, it smoked the Democrats out on what they’re looking for. What they really want to do is chip away at the Trump tax cuts that have been so successful.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

More than 9,000 servicemen and women live with no heating or hot water plus damp and mould Critics say it is a “far cry” from homes fit for heroes. A quarter of soldiers, sailors and air force personnel say the state of their housing conditions has increased their intention to leave, according to an Army attitude survey.

    ‘There’s a considerable Irish American constituency here’ Joe Biden doesn’t want to get “mixed up” in Brexit over the Northern Ireland border row, an ally of the president has told the Sunday Telegraph, The source said the new White House administration is monitoring the situation carefully but is loathe to intervene, marking a significant departure from Donald Trump’s foreign policy style. The European Union’s recent blunder triggering Article 16 of the Northern Ireland protocol in a row over vaccines, threatening to effectively create a border on the island of Ireland, set off alarm bells in Washington DC. There was no public comment on the issue at the time from Mr Biden, who has made statements on the subject in the past and is deeply personally committed to the Good Friday Agreement, or from his administration. But it was considered the latest in a series of troubling diplomatic faux pas...
    On Friday’s “Fox News Primetime,” Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) blasted the hypocrisy of those on the left like the Biden administration that say they want to follow science on the coronavirus, but then ignore the science on reopening schools. Scott said, “I mean, the hypocrisy of the left, they say they want to follow the science. The CDC says, open the schools. The Biden administration says, no, we’ll wait and follow something else.” He added, “Fact is, in December, we approved $82 billion, billion dollars, to reopen schools. They still won’t do it. I’m stunned, Trey, truly stunned.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks stated that “aside from Joe Biden, I don’t think there’s any taste for bipartisanship in the Democratic Party,” and “we’re just not going to see” bipartisanship. Brooks said, “Joe Biden ran on bipartisanship and unity. He had a chance when the ten Republicans put forth their $618 billion proposal to say, OK, let’s try for a week. I’m not going to give you more than a week, but I’ll give you a week, and we’ll see if we can get you over a trillion. The Republicans have already voted for roughly $4 trillion in aid. I think they could have gotten a fifth.” He continued, “But the problem is, aside from Joe Biden, I don’t think there’s any taste for bipartisanship in the Democratic Party, sometimes with justified reason.

    Black Lives Matter activists are targeting statues and other memorials to Captain James Cook, the great British explorer who charted much of Newfoundland, Australia, New Zealand, and Hawaii, for removal. The Yorkshireman is one of many great Britons who had made his way on to the sprawling ‘Topple the Racists’ hit-list compiled by the already-out-of-date Stop Trump Coalition. Its targets have previously included the likes of Sir Francis Drake, the English mariner who defeated the Spanish Armada, and Earl Grey, the former prime minister who oversaw the abolition of slavery but is today most famous for the aromatic tea named in his honour. “James Cook invaded Australia just over 250 years ago. He claimed possession over the entire nation even though it clearly belonged to the people already there,” declared the iconoclasts’ website, somewhat questionably, in a statement reported by the Telegraph. “What followed was 250 of genocidal activities and...
    Prosecutors want to charge all four police officers at the scene of George Floyd’s death with third-degree murder, according to a report Friday. Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison filed a motion Thursday, citing a legal precedent that would allow him to charge officers Derek Chauvin, Tou Thao, Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng with the crime — potentially adding decades to the amount of prison time they face, according to NBC. AHEAD OF GEORGE FLOYD TRIAL, MINNESOTA OFFICIALS CLASH OVER SECURITY MEASURES Unlike officer Chauvin — who was captured in footage kneeling on Floyd’s neck in May 2020 — Thao, Lane and Kueng responded to the call for a suspected "forgery in process" but did not directly cut off Floyd’s breathing.

    Formula One CEO Stefano Domenicali thinks all teams should follow the lead of Red Bull in the engine freeze proposal. The proposal seeks to halt engine development of all engine suppliers at a specified level until the regulations of engines are changed.  In this case, engines won’t be tinkered with from 2022 onwards. The 2022 engine will be the same as the 2021 variant with adjustments for e10 petrol to be used then. Red Bull has been lobbying for the required votes needed to get it over the line. They need six votes out of ten available for the freeze to happen. Red Bull is confident it will get the votes of Ferrari and its two customer teams and Alpine.

    In the nine Super Bowls Tom Brady has played in, his teams have been outscored 24-3 in the first quarter. It’s a curious statistic considering Brady and the Patriots won six of those nine games. It’s unlikely Brady and his new team, the Buccaneers, will be able to survive a bad start against the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium — the same place where Tampa Bay lost to Kansas City, 27-24, on Nov. 29. In that loss, which dropped the Buccaneers to 7-5 and left them at a crossroads to their season, the Chiefs took a 17-0 lead in the first quarter and essentially cruised to victory with the Buccaneers tightening the final score with fourth-quarter touchdowns. Kansas City scored on three of its first four possessions before the Tampa Bay offense crossed midfield. Another 17-0 deficit Sunday in the Super Bowl, with the...

    NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — Emmanuel Conteh negotiates the muddy, rutted pathways in shorts and torn plastic flip-flops and says he can’t sleep in his heavy canvas tent at night because of the cold. He laments the “hellish” conditions in ethnically divided Cyprus’ cramped Pournara migrant reception camp, where he’s been living for the past two months after flying to the breakaway Turkish Cypriot north and then clandestinely crossing into the internationally recognized south. He says he fled his native Sierra Leone because he was persecuted for refusing to follow in his father’s footsteps and practice a kind of witchcraft. “The head of this society, they want to train me, but I refused,” said Conteh. He wants Cypriot authorities to swiftly process his asylum application and let him and others out of the razor-wire-encircled former military camp near the industrial western fringes of the capital Nicosia that...
    By REGINA GARCIA CANO and MAURICIO MUÑOZ, Associated Press LIMA, Peru (AP) — Adriana Marero dropped out of college in her native Venezuela in 2017 as anti-government protests turned violent amid worsening economic problems and she fled to Peru looking for a place where she could earn a decent living.

    Dr. Alejandro Rebolledo, tells the spectacular story of Armando Reyes, a character created by fiction to give life to who lived one of the saddest times in Venezuelan life, because after having trained as one of the best jurists with great relevance at the international level, to the point of having been considered by the last democratic National Assembly elected by the people, to occupy the position of Chief Magistrate of the Criminal Cassation Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice, he was persecuted, betrayed and exiled, by the dictatorial regime that prevails in the country.

    More than half of active-duty military families won't get the COVID-19 vaccine, according to a poll conducted among more than 800 military personnel, spouses, and veterans. Fifty-three percent of the 810 active duty personnel and relatives surveyed intend to reject the vaccine, according to the Blue Star Families poll. Additionally, 40% of 57 active-duty service respondents said they would get the vaccine, while 49% said they wouldn't. Another 11% said they were undecided. A spokesman for the military advocacy group told the Washington Examiner the margin of error for the 49% who would not receive was plus or minus12.98 percentage points. Among the 53% of families who said they would not receive it, the margin of error was plus or minus 3.8 percentage points. The survey was conducted between Dec. 10-14. Jennifer Akin, a Blue Star Families researcher, conducted the poll after seeing social media posts by military family...
    Molly shared some of her Valentine's Day gift ideas. Molly Sims took to Instagram this week to show off a lingerie set that would be perfect to wear for an intimate Valentine’s Day evening with someone special. The 47-year-old Las Vegas actress is a former Victoria’s Secret model, so many pictures of her rocking bras and panties already exist on the internet. However, she quipped that she didn’t want her husband, Netflix executive Scott Stuber, to see the two candid pics of her scantily-clad body that she shared on Friday. Molly posed inside a bathroom, where she stood in front of a sink with a marble countertop. A mirror hung over the sink, and a freestanding bathtub sat beside it in a corner. The room had at least two windows, which were covered by woven tan shades. The model wore a hot pink bra constructed out of stretchy floral lace...
    More On: George Floyd Minnesota officials feuding over cost of security at George Floyd murder trial George Floyd cop Derek Chauvin used similar tactics against other suspects: report Walmart donates $14M to promote racial equity George Floyd trial could be COVID-19 superspreader event: prosecutors Prosecutors want to charge all four police officers at the scene of George Floyd’s death with third-degree murder, according to a report Friday. Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison filed a motion Thursday, citing a legal precedent that would allow him to charge officers Derek Chauvin, Tou Thao, Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng with the crime — potentially adding decades to the amount of prison time they face, according to NBC. Unlike officer Chauvin — who was captured in footage kneeling on Floyd’s neck in May 2020— Thao, Lane and Kueng responded to the call for a suspected “forgery in process” but did not directly cut...
    Millions of Americans remain jobless, but all want full-time jobs, even as President Joe Biden’s administration seeks to flood to United States labor market with foreign competition via more legal immigration and an amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. The latest Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data reveals that 17.1 million Americans are jobless — 10.1 million underemployed and another seven million who are out of the labor force entirely — but all want full-time jobs with competitive wages and good benefits. Of those 10.1 million unemployed Americans, 1.5 million are teenagers, 930,00 are black Americans, 870,000 are Hispanics, 666,600 are Asian Americans, and 576,000 are white Americans. About 3.5 million of those unemployed are permanent job losers. Another group of Americans, six million, remain underemployed mostly due to the Chinese coronavirus crisis that has spurred states to issue selective economic lockdowns that have shuttered small and medium-sized businesses while multinational...
    An invitation to testify at his impeachment trial, addressed to Donald Trump, was refused by his team. The impeachment trial of Donald trump will have to start next Tuesday in the Senate.

    February 5, 2021 7 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Mainstream media has continued to shrink – in fact, this recent Pew Research report shows newsroom employment in the United States declined by 23% between 2008 and 2019. The smaller size of newsrooms, paired with the fact that the technology press continues to favor only the biggest companies, means many organizations are searching for fresh ways to uplevel their profiles. One way to break through the barriers to coverage today: create your own newsroom that lives on your website and covers topics of interest to influencers, investors, decision-makers, and other key audiences.

    Larry Summers at the White House in 2009.Charles Dharapak/AP 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.Economist Larry Summers has been the kingpin of every economic calamity Democrats have weathered over the last three decades. But Barack Obama’s National Economic Council chair during the Great Recession finds himself as persona non grata this week after penning an op-ed undermining the $1.9 trillion COVID relief package President Joe Biden is trying to push through Congress. Summers’ treatise spread from wonk to wonk in the White House like a venereal disease—and was about as well-received. It was met with “widespread disagreement,” in the words of one aide. White House economists had already been booked for media hits to discuss the January jobs report, airtime that permitted many administration voices to rebuke Summers in unison. “The...

    MPR’s Jon Collins writes: “Prosecutors want all four former officers charged in the killing of George Floyd to get an additional charge of third-degree murder. The motion filed Thursday is based on a state appeals court decision earlier this week tied to the case of another former Minneapolis police officer, Mohamed Noor, who was convicted in the 2017 killing of Justine Ruszczyk. … Prosecutors with Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison’s office say the appeals court ruling in the Noor case makes clear that third-degree murder charges can be directed at just one person. They want Hennepin County District Judge Peter Cahill to reinstate third-degree murder charges against former officer Derek Chauvin.” Says the Star Tribune’s Liz Navratil, “Minneapolis has about 200 fewer police officers available to work as the city tries to rebound from a violent year and prepare for more potential unrest.

    (Reuters) - Teachers in Myanmar on Friday became the latest group to join a civil disobedience campaign with some lecturers refusing to work or cooperate with authorities in protest against the military's seizure of power.The civil disobedience campaign started among medical workers soon after Monday's coup but has since spread to include students, youth groups and some workers in both the state and private. Wearing red ribbons and holding up protest signs, scores of lecturers and teachers gathered in front of campus buildings at the Yangon University of Education. "We don't want this military coup which unlawfully seized power from our elected government," said lecturer Nwe Thazin Hlaing. "We are no longer going to work with them. We want the military coup to fail," she added, surrounded by other staff who held up held up three-finger salutes, now used by many protesters in Myanmar. The salute - three fingers pointing...
    DEAR MISS MANNERS: I ordered a wine gift basket for my cousin and his wife who live out of state; I received an email thanking me for my gift. My cousin reciprocated by mailing me a fairly expensive gift card to a restaurant where I rarely dine. I am contemplating a major hardware purchase and would prefer a gift card from a hardware retailer. Would it be appropriate to return the restaurant gift card to my cousin and ask him to exchange it for a hardware chain gift card? GENTLE READER: Ever heard of thoughts counting? The giving and receiving of presents is not a practical proposition. The prevalent use of gift registries would argue otherwise — but while they ensure that people get the stuff they want, they are devoid of any thought or sentiment. Presumably you gave your cousins a wine basket because you thought they would enjoy...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – As the Super Bowl approaches this Sunday on CBS and outdoor dining resumes in Los Angeles, local restaurants are asking customers to celebrate on-the-go. L.A. health officials have discouraged people from gathering at dining establishments to watch the game, even banning outdoor televisions at restaurants. But many restaurants are still offering take-out options so you can celebrate with your favorite foods. If you’re looking for delicious Mexican food to eat while you watch the Buccaneers square off against the Chiefs, El Cholo’s chimichanga platter and margaritas in half-gallon jugs could be for you. “When you watch the Super Bowl, you need chips and guac and you need pico de gallo,” said one restaurant manager. The restaurant has two locations, one on Western Avenue and another on Flower Street in Los Angeles. For those that want to watch Tom Brady take on Patrick Maholmes while eating a...
            by Willis Krumholz  Alpha News recently reported that eight Minnesota voters petitioned the Minnesota Supreme Court with claims that Minnesota didn’t follow election laws in 2020. As part of their legal effort, these voters are requesting access to data involving Facebook CEO and billionaire Mark Zuckerberg’s financial influence on how the 2020 election was conducted. It has been widely reported that Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan gave $350 million to a nonprofit, the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), that re-granted the funds to thousands of local election officials around the country. From the get-go, even before the election, these donations were controversial. After the election, a study by the Capital Research Center (CRC) found that CTCL’s money in Georgia seemed to sway the state for Democrats. For example, “Of the ten counties with the greatest shifts to the Democratic presidential candidate (comparing 2016 to 2020 votes), nine...
    Sports can be unifying as long as Americans "stop listening" to those who want to divide the country, former NFL player Herschel Walker told "Fox News Primetime" Thursday. "It’s very unifying, and that's why I said that things have gotten to the way it is today because, you know, I look back and I say, you know, Doug Flutie, Doug Flutie is a family," Walker explained to host Trey Gowdy. "Todd Fowler, who I played with here in Dallas, and Frank Rawls, who's from Barcelona, Spain, is my brother. He's really like my brother." "When people start to talk about separation ... There is no 'I' in team, there's no 'we' in team; It is called team. And that's how the team is better is when you play as one, as one group and it is sad this country is in the place it's in today," said the 1982 Heisman Trophy winner.  "But...
    I’m all for unity. Most Americans are. But I’m doubtful about the sincerity of those preaching unity since President Joe Biden’s inauguration. My skepticism is not sour grapes over the election. Joe Biden is our president, and he has my prayers and my respect. Furthermore, whenever and however the public policy group I lead can work together with him and his administration, we will. Rather, my skepticism is rooted in years of experience as a conservative in higher education—in a liberal arts field, no less, where liberal professors outnumber conservatives by more than 33 to one. That experience revealed the depth of disdain that so many on the American Left have for conservatives. In those circles, whether at faculty meetings or in social gatherings, my liberal colleagues’ appeals to “civility” and “unity” were applicable only when conservatives disagreed with them. In other words, “be civil” and “strive for unity” are really code-words...
    Two cops involved in the shooting death of an emotionally disturbed cabbie want a Civilian Complaint Review Board investigation thrown out as the probe is coming over eight years later, new court papers show. NYPD Detective Edwin Mateo and Lieutenant Michael Licitra — who were present when knife-wielding Mohamed Bah was shot down in his Harlem apartment by Mateo on Sept. 25, 2012 — say the CCRB told them in November that they had to appear for an interview, according to a Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit from Thursday. The men were “shocked” to hear this since they didn’t know the CCRB — a police watchdog group — was looking into it since the incident was over 8 years old and had already been investigated by federal prosecutors and internally by the NYPD, all finding no criminal responsibility by the cops. Further, a grand jury declined to indict the officers...
    A poll released Thursday by Quinnipiac University found that 50% of Americans think the Senate should convict former President Donald Trump in his upcoming impeachment trial. When asked whether they believe the Senate should convict Trump, 86% of Democratic respondents answered “yes” while the same percentage of Republicans said “no.” There was a similar partisan split in views of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. More than half of respondents, 59%, do not believe the claims of fraud, and 96% of Democrats agreed with this majority. Meanwhile, 76% of Republicans said they believe there was widespread fraud.

    On his first day in office, President Biden signed an executive order revoking the permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline, pleasing climate activists and Indigenous groups. If completed, Keystone would span nearly 1,200 miles, carrying carbon-heavy oil south from Canada to the Gulf Coast.  The pipeline was an obstacle to Mr. Biden's campaign promise to create 10 million clean energy jobs. The order nixing Keystone stated the pipeline "would not serve the U.S. national interest" and said the U.S. "must prioritize the development of a clean energy economy, which will in turn create good jobs."  Pipelines are built seasonally for 19 ½ weeks at a time, on average, so the jobs created to build them are considered short-term. In 2014, the State Department estimated that Keystone would employ 10,400 workers over multiple construction seasons, thereby adding up to 3,900 jobs. Now, without a pipeline to construct, hundreds of workers are...

    AUSTIN, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – As COVID-19 vaccination efforts continue in Texas, health officials are asking large hubs and other smaller providers to put a bigger emphasis on distributing to residents who are 75 years and older. In a briefing with the Department of State Health Services, the chair of the state’s expert vaccine allocation panel, Imelda Garcia, said Texas has distributed more than 2.75 million doses of the vaccine. She said more than 2.1 million have received at least one dose and about 620,000 are fully vaccinated. Garcia said state medical experts want vaccine sites to make accommodations in order to provide more older residents, 75 years and older, with doses. “We want to put an emphasis on vaccinating people who are at least 75 years since they are at the greatest risk for severe disease and death,” Garcia said. “We are asking all of our vaccine providers, both hubs...

    Lindsey Graham really doesn't want Trump to speak at his own impeachment trial
    (CNN)Thousands of progressive young people have expressed interest in running for office since the start of the year, demonstrating ongoing energy on the left after last year's elections.Run For Something, the PAC that supports young progressives running for state and local office, says 6,554 people signed up for its pipeline in January, many of whom indicated their interest to run in the wake of the insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6. The high interest comes on the heels of Democrats winning the White House and Senate, and maintaining their majority in the House.While signing up with Run For Something demonstrates a potential candidate's interest in running for office, it does not mean they will run in the next few years, nor does it guarantee the person will run at all.

GOP senators say there's no reason for Trump to testify after the House impeached him for a historic second time without calling any witnesses, a move that was different than the 2019 impeachment effort.  House Democrats argued they could move more quickly this time because lawmakers experienced the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol firsthand and had witnessed Trump's...
    Meghan McCain told her co-hosts Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that the Republican Party is losing suburban voters over Rep.

Kevin McCarthy, you let Liz Cheney vacillate until the 11th hour, and then at the 11th hour said, ‘Oh, okay. We should rally behind her.’ He had plenty of ample opportunities to do this over the last few weeks, and he decided not to.

    New York Mets want Jackie Bradley on short deal, but he is seeking four years By: Andres Chavez February 4, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Mets have clearly done their homework this offseason by addressing the starting rotation, the bullpen, and bringing one of the best shortstops in the game in Francisco Lindor. However, they still have one glaring hole in the defensive alignment: center field. It’s not like the Mets don’t have alternatives. Brandon Nimmo is one of the best leadoff hitters in MLB, capable of taking walks, hitting for power, and contributing on the basepaths. The problem is that no metric rates him as a good, or even average, defender out there in center. The Mets were connected to George Springer all winter, but he ended up signing with the Toronto Blue Jays. That has caused the team to shift...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — A group of Chicago aldermen said all essential workers should be able to get the coronavirus vaccine. But right now, some are stuck at the back of the line. CBS 2’s Mugo Odigwe reports on an online forum from Thursday morning. Those who frequent libraries know librarians are on the front lines. They see and are interacting people every day. But they aren’t in group 1B to get the vaccine. And they want that to change. First, they said many other libraries across the state and around the country closed down, and mostly relied on curbside pick-up when the pandemic hit. But Chicago Public Library didn’t. And now that vaccines are available, librarians who come to work daily aren’t being prioritized. They said between October and December of last year, the number of COVID-19 cases among CPL employees rose by more than 1000%. That included security guards and...
    The specifics aren’t clear yet, but Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said he will make an announcement Friday, with the goal of helping students whose school years have been complicated by the coronavirus. “We want to extend our classrooms this summer, to allow our children to catch up, so that everybody will be ready in the fall,” Northam told The Washington Post. Northam had previously floated the idea of year-round school this year, as the state attempted to balance student and staff safety with education. While Northam didn’t offer specifics of how the summer learning would be provided — or if it would be mandatory — he expounded on one reason it’s needed. “Our kids need to be back in school — our parents need a break, too,” Northam said. “We’ve asked a lot for the past year from our children and our families, and now it’s time for us to...
    A gunman demanded a plate of fried chicken and waffles Wednesday evening at a Pasadena restaurant and left without taking any cash, police said. The robbery was reported at 5:40 p.m. at Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles, Pasadena Police Lt. Marcia Taglioretti said. No injuries were reported, and the thief apparently did not take anything other than food, Taglioretti said. Roscoe’s cook Robert Gonzalez told TV station KTLA that the man returned after having been ordered to leave the restaurant because he refused to wear a mask. The second time he came in, he still had no mask, but he had a gun. “The guy just said, ‘Put all the chicken in the bag,’” Gonzalez told KTLA. “I understand we got some good chicken, but man.” He said the man left with some orders that were waiting to be picked up.

    Colorado Gov. Jared Polis and a group of bipartisan state officials are urging Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to reconsider and "pause" former President Donald Trump's decision to move U.S. Space Command from Colorado Springs to Alabama, saying it will "undermine" the country's ability to respond to national security threats in space. The U.S. Air Force last month announced that Space Command's headquarters would be officially moved to Huntsville, Ala.'s, Redstone Arsenal after an intense lobbying battle between six finalists — which included Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs. In a letter to Austin, Polis, Lt. Gov.
