    In an interview with Fox News on Friday, Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas slammed President Joe Biden for reversing the previous administration’s policies on Russia. Biden announced that he will seek a five-year extension to the START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) agreement between the United States and Russia. “This is a very bad decision,” Cotton said, arguing that the Biden administration’s actions could jeopardize American national security because the agreement is “one-sided” and favors Russia over the United States. Cotton ripped into Democratic Party politicians for endorsing Biden’s initiative after spending four years alleging that former President Donald Trump colluded with Vladimir Putin and Russian government officials to defeat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. “After four years of the Democrats beating their chests about Russia and continuing on and on about the Russia collusion hoax, they’ve now gone back to their old, weak,...
    President Joe Biden’s first day in office may have been historic in more ways than one: he may have set a single-day record for the number of jobs killed by an American president. Biden revoked the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, as promised. In so doing, he killed some 11,000 direct jobs that the pipeline’s construction was to have created, and an estimated 60,000 indirect jobs in secondary, related industries. Over 1,000 workers already on the job — mostly union workers — will be laid off as a result of the decision, even if it is litigated, as many expect it will be, in the courts. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) confronted Secretary of Transportation nominee Pete Buttigieg over the Keystone XL decision on Thursday morning, during Buttigieg’s confirmation hearing. If the administration was serious about infrastructure, Cruz asked, why was it killing an infrastructure project with “good, paying union...

     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;...

    The Week Trump is reportedly just going up to people and asking if they want a pardon President Trump has spent the last few days asking his friends, aides, and associates if they would like pardons — even those who are not facing any charges, a senior administration official told The Washington Post.In one case, the official said, Trump offered a pardon to a person who declined the chance at clemency, saying they weren’t in any legal trouble and hadn’t committed any crimes. “Trump’s response was, ‘Yeah, well, but you never know. They’re going to come after us all. Maybe it’s not a bad idea. Just let me know,'” the official recounted.Trump has taken a great interest in pardoning people, the Post reports, even calling families to personally let them know he granted a pardon. A person familiar with the matter told the Post that Trump was talked out of...

After being sworn in on Wednesday afternoon, Biden will revoke the emergency proclamation that sped construction of a wall along the border with Mexico. He will also reinstate normal visa processing practices with 13 countries, many with Muslim-majority populations. “This ban, which restricted issuance of visas to individuals from many Muslim and African countries, was nothing less than a stain on our nation. It was rooted in xenophobia and religious animus and President-elect Biden has been clear that we will not turn our...
    (CNN)President-elect Joe Biden will unveil a comprehensive immigration plan on his first day in office, a source familiar with the proposal tells CNN, describing an agenda that provides a multi-year pathway to citizenship for the millions of undocumented immigrants currently in the United States.The plan, which also would aim to address the root cause of migration from countries in Central America and improve the use of technology at the border, will be sent to Congress on Wednesday, shortly after Biden is inaugurated, the source said.Biden promised during the campaign that he would make immigration reform a priority as president, a move that ran directly counter to the anti-immigration rhetoric and action that defined President Donald Trump's four years in office. The President-elect also received pressure from immigration groups throughout the campaign, many of whom worried that the deportation that happened during the Obama presidency would continue in the Biden administration.Biden...
    Mounted police at an antiwar protest in San Francisco, April 4, 1967. After Joe Biden finishes swearing his oath of office Wednesday, it appears he’ll only take half a breath before getting cracking on what his chief of staff Ron Klain calls “four overlapping and compounding crises” by issuing a 10-day run of executive orders. Many will necessarily be directed at upending actions taken by Donald J. Trump during his 1,461-day occupation of the White House. Because it is Joe Biden, some orders will be directed specifically toward healing the nation’s divisions.  Every president since George Washington has issued executive orders although the term does not appear in the Constitution but is an assumed a prerogative under executive power. Washington’s first such order in the autumn of 1789 was to declare a national day of thanksgiving. It wasn’t until Abraham Lincoln took office that the term “executive order” was used, his first being issued 19 months after...

The new president, 78, will also extend an eviction moratorium and pause on student loan repayments amid the raging coronavirus pandemic and corresponding economic crisis. But perhaps...
    President-elect Joe Biden reportedly plans to sign an executive order rescinding the Keystone XL pipeline’s cross-border permit on his first day of his office, sources confirmed to multiple news outlets.

The move could sound a death knell for the controversial project, which President Trump tried to resurrect early in his term after his predecessor, Barack Obama, opposed it. The phrase “Rescind Keystone XL pipeline permit” appeared on a list of Day One executive actions that Biden’s transition team gave to American stakeholders, according to Canada’s CBC News, which first reported the development on Sunday.

    President-elect Joe Biden is planning to cancel the permit for the $9 billion Keystone XL pipeline project as one of his first acts in office, and perhaps as soon as his first day, according to a source familiar with his thinking. President Donald Trump had made building the pipeline a central promise of his presidential campaign. Biden, who will be inaugurated Wednesday, was vice president in the Obama administration when it rejected the project as contrary to its efforts to combat climate change. The words "Rescind Keystone XL pipeline permit" appear on a list of executive actions likely scheduled for the first day of Bidens presidency, according to an earlier report by the Canadian Broadcasting Corp (CBC). Biden had earlier vowed to scrap the oil pipelines presidential permit if he became president. Canadas ambassador to the United States said she would continue to promote a project that she said fit...
    President-elect Biden is planning to sign several executive orders on day one of his presidency, his incoming chief of staff announced in a statement.  The president-elect will sign roughly a dozen executive orders that day, including reversing President Trump’s travel ban on 13 majority-Muslim countries, rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement and extending the pause on student loan payments, according to Ron Klain. Biden also will initiate his "100-Day Masking Challenge" with a mask mandate  on federal property and during interstate travel. Klain promised the president-elect would sign additional executive orders on climate change and health care access in the first week of the new administration.  "Much more will need to be done to fight COVID-19, build our economy back better, combat systemic racism and inequality, and address the existential threat of the climate crisis," Klain said in the statement. "But by February 1st, America will be moving in the right direction...

    President-elect Joe Biden is promising to start implementing on day one the most aggressive policies to curb emissions of any administration. His administration is poised to get started quickly. Biden is bringing in a team of climate policymaking veterans, former Obama Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy and former Secretary of State John Kerry, to run his White House climate shop. He has also been laying the groundwork for months to set an “all of government” strategy to curb greenhouse gas emissions sharply. Environmentalists and those close to Biden’s team expect the president-elect will seek to codify his overall agenda in his first days, maybe even in his first few hours on the job. “I’m just hoping to hear on day one, or very, very early, signals about an urgent agenda to address neglected pollution problems, including, of course, climate change,” said David Doniger, senior strategic director of the Natural...
    President-elect Joe Biden has peddled "day one" promises throughout his campaign, mostly focused on reversing the work of the Trump administration. Here’s what he said is on his agenda for Jan. 20, Inauguration Day: 1. Send a DACA bill to Congress  In June, the president-elect promised to send a bill to Congress to create a pathway to citizenship for not only the nation’s Dreamers, immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, but also the 11 million undocumented people currently living in the country. "It’s long overdue," Biden wrote on Twitter.  But in November he loosened that timeline, committing to forging a pathway to citizenship within the first 100 days of his administration.  "Some of it’s gonna depend on the kinda cooperation I can or cannot get from the United States Congress," Biden acknowledged.  On the campaign trail, Biden pledged to end the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) that keep migrants in...
    If you were worried that President-elect Joe Biden wasn’t going to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement, you can relax, he is expected to do so on his very first day in office.  “I’ll immediately start working with my counterparts around the world to do all that we possibly can, including by convening the leaders of major economies for a climate summit within my first 100 days in office,” Joe Biden said in a statement. “We’ll elevate the incredible work cities, states and businesses have been doing to help reduce emissions and build a cleaner future. We’ll listen to and engage closely with the activists, including young people, who have continued to sound the alarm and demand change from those in power.” Biden also reiterated his plan to achieve zero net emissions by 2050. “We’ll do all of this knowing that we have before us an enormous economic opportunity to...
    Indoo Ki Jawani starring Kiara Advani and Aditya Seal, released today and reports have not been welcoming. It seems the audience is still not ready to brave COVID-19 scare and venture inside the theatres. The morning shows of the movie have recorded abysmal occupancy of 4-5% only if reports are to be believed. Indoo Ki Jawani is a story about an Indian girl and Pakistani man and how they find a few commonalities. The remixed track Sawaan mei lag gayi aag did create some buzz but that was it. It Was a Collective Call to Wait for Theatrical Release: Monisha Advani on ‘Indoo Ki Jawani’ COVID-19 may not be the only reason behind the film’s dismal performance so far. There’s hardly any chatter around the movie. The trailer too didn’t create any hype which definitely worked against the film. In fact, we doubt if many people are aware that Indoo...

    Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. George Gascón announced sweeping policy changes as he took office Monday, including a plan to end the use of cash bail in the nation’s largest court system and a ban on his prosecutors seeking sentencing enhancements in nearly all cases. The dramatic reversals to deeply engrained, traditional law enforcement strategies in the nation’s largest prosecutor’s office also include plans to review of thousands of old cases to determine whether lighter sentences or a prisoner’s release should be sought, Gascón said in speech after being sworn in. Gascón also said he expects to bring an end to misdemeanor prosecutions of most first-time, non-violent, offenders. “I recognize for many this is a new path … whether you are a protester, a police officer or a prosecutor, I ask you to walk with me. I ask you to join me on this journey,” he said. “We can...
    DENVER (CBS4) – Teams in the NFL are often defined by the “next man up” philosophy, but the Denver Broncos couldn’t overcome the loss of their top two cornerbacks in the 34-27 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. AJ Bouye was out with a concussion and Bryce Callahan missed the game with an ankle injury. In their place was third-year cornerback Davontae Harris, rookie Michael Ojmeudia and rookie Essang Bassey was used as the “nickel” or third cornerback.

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is pledging to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord on his first day in office. In a tweet posted Wednesday night, the former vice president vowed that a Biden administration would undo the Trump administration’s action to withdraw from the agreement. “Today, the Trump Administration officially left the Paris Climate Agreement. And in exactly 77 days, a Biden Administration will rejoin it,” Biden wrote on the social media platform. Biden’s comments come before he has won the US presidential election. The 2020 election was upended by the coronavirus pandemic, resulting in more ballots than ever being cast by mail. Each of the 50 states has their own set of complex election laws — many of which have been taken up in courts across the country as states grapple with a surge of mail-in-voting for the first time. While in-person voting started on Tuesday, final calls have...
