    More from: Jonah Goldberg Biden is using the Obama-Trump playbook, not seeking unity Progressives have made a mockery of the slogan listen to science Ted Cruz proved that GOP wont simply return to Reaganism after Trump Team Trump’s legal arguments veering into paranoid kook-land Cancel student-loan debt? Thats making the working class subsidize the elite! Joe Biden ran for president on a “return to normalcy.” His challenge is that there are three competing definitions of normalcy for him to contend with. Biden didn’t actually use the slogan “return to normalcy.” But as numerous political observers noted during the campaign, that was both Biden’s implicit appeal and his best shot at victory. As Jonathan Martin and Sydney Ember of The New York Times wrote in March 2019, “Biden, in speeches at home and abroad, has used much of the first part of this year pledging to restore the dignity he...
    London (CNN Business)Boeing has spent years trying to assure customers, regulators and the public that its planes are safe. That job may have just gotten harder.What's happening: Airlines in the United States, South Korea and Japan have grounded dozens of Boeing 777 aircraft after one of the jets suffered engine failure Saturday, sending debris crashing down over Denver.Boeing (BA) on Sunday recommended that airlines stop flying versions of the aircraft that are equipped with Pratt & Whitney 4000-112 engines while US authorities investigate the Denver incident. Of those, 69 had been in service and 59 are in storage, the plane maker said. Shares of the company are down 3% in premarket trading after they rallied 4.3% on Friday.

    Bonnie Jo Mount/The Washington Post via Getty Before separating from the Army in 1991, Timothy McVeigh used to wear a T-shirt he got as part of a trial membership in the Ku Klux Klan. In his Army barracks, in full view of Black soldiers, McVeigh advertised his adherence to WHITE POWER. In his spare time, McVeigh frequented gun shows, where, in addition to amassing and selling weapons, he hawked copies of the seminal white terror-manifesto novel The Turner Diaries. The Army had regulations in place to ban “active participation” in terrorist groups like the KKK—its prohibitions on disorganized extremist activity were murkier—it just didn’t enforce them. On April 19, 1995, it became too late to stop McVeigh, a decorated Gulf War veteran, from murdering 168 people, including 19 children, in the bloodiest act of terrorism on U.S. soil before 9/11. The reckoning that occurred after Oklahoma City is instructive....

    Jabby New Year THE last thing we need, just as the vaccine triggers a surge in consumer confidence, is a third economy-destroying lockdown. But that looks a forlorn hope. The omens for January are all grim. ⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates 4We don't need a third lockdown - just as the vaccine boosts consumer confidenceCredit: Getty Images - Getty Most kids will be kept at home for an extra week after Christmas to enable schools to create a testing programme. That means their parents cannot work.  We thought closing schools — a proven, pointless disaster — was ruled out. But no. Meanwhile Chancellor Rishi Sunak, knowing further calamity lies ahead, extends the furlough scheme once more. Fairly or not, almost 70 per cent of us now live in Tier 3, our lives and liberties on ice. Positive cases are soaring again....
    Kenneth E. Remy is an adult and children’s physician working in the intensive care area of ​​a Missouri hospital. The doctor decided to record a shocking video and share it on their social networks to show “the last thing your parents or your children will see before dying from COVID-19”. The camera focuses on the face of Remy, who, dressed in the necessary safety equipment to care for coronavirus patients, speaks through a medical mask. “This is what it looks like when you breathe 40 times per minute with an oxygenation level below 80“Explains the doctor as the camera zooms in and out several times. Then, he places a small light in front of the camera and brings a tube closer, simulating the intubation of a patient. “I hope the last time you see the light, it’s not like this, because this is what you...
    Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, a conservative and vocal ally of President Donald Trump, comforted supporters concerned about the ongoing vote counts in the American presidential election late on Wednesday, asserting, “hope is the last [thing] to die.” Bolsonaro admitted that, like millions around the world, he was riveted watching the vote counts for Trump and rival former Vice President Joe Biden trickling from battleground states and expected a fair result. According to Brazilian newspaper O Globo, a small group of supporters met Bolsonaro in front of the official presidential residence, the Alvorada Palace, late Wednesday. Bolsonaro responded to a woman who asked “what would become of us” without him or Trump, and later to someone asking if he was following election results from America. “What do you think? Everybody is following,” Bolsonaro responded. “It seems like the business over there is going to the courts, one state or another. Let’s wait...
    In the aftermath of a loss in which the 49ers failed to measure up against the Seahawks, head coach Kyle Shanahan and his players said they were eager to get back to work and happy to have the chance to turn the page quickly with another game on Thursday night. Bring on the Packers, they say. “Man, I’m so glad we are playing Thursday because after a loss you want to get the taste out of your mouth,” fullback Kyle Juszczyk said. Ready or not, the Packers will arrive at Levi’s Stadium this week with a chance to deliver a crushing blow to San Francisco’s playoff hopes. With a 4-4 record and weekly injury reports that read like CVS receipts, the one thing the 49ers need is the one thing they don’t have: Time. It shouldn’t take Shanahan long to develop a game plan to...
    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden addressed President Donald Trump’s refusal to commit to a peaceful transfer of power during an interview with MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle, noting that “the last thing we need is the equivalent of a coup.” Wednesday, a reporter asked the president if he would commit to “a peaceful transferral of power after the election,” and Trump replied, “we’re going to have to see what happens” — causing a stir in the political world. Biden, however, was confident that Trump only made those statements to cause a distraction, observing that he’s made the same move in the past. “They are going to vote and they are going to vote in large numbers and they are just not going to be denied. It’s going to be clear from the beginning exactly where this is going,” Biden said. “But look, no, this is a typical Trump distraction, trying to make everybody wonder whether or not...
    Star Dallas Cowboys offensive tackle Tyron Smith suffered a practice injury and concern is already growing for the coaching staff. Injuries have already started to provide major concerns for the Dallas Cowboys, especially after the team lost defensive lineman Gerald McCoy to a season-ending quad injury early on during camp. Now on the other side of the line, more worry has arrived. During practice on Thursday, Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith appeared to have injured himself during individual drills and was seen my members of the media walking off gingerly with an athletic trainer early on during the session. The man protecting Dak Prescott’s blindside is already banged up? It goes without saying, but this is the last thing Mike McCarthy and the rest of the Dallas coaches want to be dealing with right now. Cowboys LT Tyron Smith walked off field with an athletic trainer early in practice....
    David Bakhtiari appears to have suffered a practice injury and it’s the last thing the Green Bay Packers need right now.  The football gods simply have not been kind to Aaron Rodgers over the past six months. To make matters worse, one of his best friends on the team and the man in charge of protecting his blindside is already getting hurt early on in training camp? On Tuesday, starting Green Bay Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari was seen limping off the field after getting dinged up. If he is forced to miss any time whatsoever, it’d be a big blow for Green Bay. More so, it’d be just devastating news for Rodgers, who quite frankly has suffered enough this offseason. LT David Bakhtiari limping off the field now. — Tom Silverstein (@TomSilverstein) August 18, 2020 David Bakhtiari suffering any kind of injury would be catastrophic news for the Green Bay Packers and...
    New and bigger billboards in San Jose? Really? Well, that’s what the City Council is proposing by gutting the 1985 ban on new billboards. The city Planning Department explains that by allowing new, large, digital billboards, four times as many “old” existing billboards will be removed. Plus, they say new billboards will be “vibrant quality signs.” Is that a deal you can’t refuse? Planners think so, asserting billboards will “facilitate economic development” and are “an … aesthetic asset” that will be responsible for a “vibrant urban landscape.” City Councilman Raul Peralez and other City Council members agree, declaring billboards to be, of all things, “progressive.” Judge for yourself, for as many as 90 new digital billboards are on their way by order of the City Council unless citizens just say no. If not impeded by the findings of an environmental impact report, expected soon, those electronic behemoths will be accompanied...
    (Bloomberg Opinion) — Just when it seems the lot of Venezuelans could get no worse, trust President Nicolas Maduro to show that the bottom is lower still. Earlier this month, Maduro dispatched troops to the Colombian border. The emergency? Tens of thousands of Venezuelans who had fled the dystopic Bolivarian republic and then been slammed by coronavirus and the economic shutdown abroad were now desperate to make their way back home. “Biological weapons,” Maduro called them, absurdly blaming unwilling prodigal Venezuelans for the country’s spiking contagion. Venezuela’s returnees are the most flagrant face of one of the region’s least noted emergencies: the plight of hundreds of thousands of Latin Americans who escaped dead-end lives in their native lands and now, amid disease and lockdowns, find they are unwanted by their neighbors as well. Forget for a moment the U.S. border wall and crowded detention centers along the Rio Grande; the...
    HUMBOLDT PARK — After a non-binding vote and two community forums, members of Roberto Clemente Community Academy’s local school council has formally removed school officers from campus. The 9-1 vote Monday night means the Humboldt Park high school is now the third Chicago school to eliminate school resource officers, after Northside College Prep and Benito Juarez Community Academy. Protesters have demanded Chicago Public Schools cut ties with the Chicago Police Department — as has happened in Minneapolis — and remove officers from schools as part of a larger movement against police violence. City and district leaders have resisted taking widespread action, instead urging local school councils to make their own decisions. Most schools already have opted to retain school police while other councils will vote in the next couple of weeks. At Clemente, the vote came after weeks of discussion among council members, teachers, parents, students and community members. The council voted 8-3...
    US Border Patrol agents detain a 16-year-old undocumented immigrant from Mexico in Mission, Texas, in September 2019.John Moore/Getty Images For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis and more, subscribe to Mother Jones' newsletters.Over the past week, hundreds of federal law enforcement officers descended upon the police reform protests in Portland, beating demonstrators with batons, pepper-spraying them, shooting non-lethal bullets at them, and even dragging them into unmarked vans. As my colleagues have reported, the undertrained and sometimes unidentified agents came from several branches of the Department of Homeland Security. While DHS has not provided a breakdown of how each of its agencies is represented on the ground, the feds say a June 26 executive order signed by President Donald Trump to “protect American monuments” and “combat recent criminal violence” gives them the authority to do as they please in America’s cities—even if mayors or governors don’t want them there. That’s particularly...
    London (CNN Business)Britain's decision to ban Huawei from its 5G telecom network risks damaging a multi-billion dollar trade and investment relationship with China at the worst possible moment for the UK economy. The move tears up a 20-year partnership with the Chinese company. It has already provoked an angry response from Beijing, which said on Wednesday that it would do everything necessary to protect its interests. China also warned the decision would deter future investment by its companies."The way you are treating Huawei will be followed very closely by other Chinese businesses," China's ambassador to the UK, Liu Xiaoming, said during a press conference. "The mutual trust was undermined. It will be very difficult for businesses to have the confidence to have more investment."Britain had been cozying up to Beijing in recent years. It was the first major Western economy to join China's rival to the World Bank, the Asian...
    “The last thing to do now is raise taxes.” The employer’s president, Antonio Garamendi, has insisted on this message during the closing this Thursday of the Business Summit that has brought together the first managers of the country. Garamendi recalled the requests of the different economic sectors that have participated in the conference, among which is not raising fiscal pressure in the midst of a crisis to companies, as the Government of Pedro Sánchez and Pablo Iglesias. Furthermore, the president of Inditex, Pablo Isla, has announced the ten keys of the businessmen for the reconstruction of the country. It highlights legal certainty, consensus and social dialogue and budgetary stability to attract investment from abroad. Isla has indicated as the first key for entrepreneurs the “medium and long-term vision”, a long-range policy to allow companies to develop their strategies with confidence. Precisely, “trust” is the second key for CEOE, “legal certainty”....
    Pushing back on calls to defund the police, the Los Angeles County sheriff told Fox News Monday that having fewer police officers on the street "should be the last thing in the world" that residents demand. “LA County is the largest county in the nation. We are the most understaffed law enforcement agency in the entire nation with an average of one deputy per 1,000 residents,” Alex Villanueva told “America’s Newsroom.” Villanueva noted that in comparison, the NYPD has four police officers per 1,000 residents, and he issued a "note of caution" to those who want fewer police officers on the streets of major cities. "Ask the average person who is not involved in the criminal justice system. They’re not suspects, formerly incarcerated, currently incarcerated, or relatives of those incarcerated. Ask that crowd: the people who do their job day to day, they want to make sure they have that safety net to know that they can...
    In June 2016, I returned home from an assignment serving as chief of station in a South Asian war zone. My first stop after reconnecting with my wife and children was a visit to Boston to see my father, then in the last year of his life. Parkinson’s disease, from which he had been suffering for almost a decade, had severely crippled his mobility but had done nothing to diminish his mental acuity, sense of humor and love for his family. My dad taught me how to ski. We spent all of our vacations and many weekends together skiing in New England from the time I was 4 years old. It was his passion and the most sacred father-son time we would spend together. MATT McGEE: TO MY GRADUATE — AMID THE YEAR'S TURMOIL, THESE 3 THINGS WILL HELP YOU MAKE YOUR MARK At the end of each day of skiing, dad would tell me...
    MIAMI –– As the East Coast enters hurricane season, residents are beginning to think about the tough choices they may have to make for their safety. One lifelong resident of Miami, 26-year-old John-Paul Rodriguez, said people may have to choose the lesser of two evils. “The last thing we need is another catastrophe ... in my lifetime I've dealt with, I mean, I can't count, but a lot of hurricanes. COVID-19, I mean that is the big worry, right? Do you choose to go to a hurricane shelter and expose yourself to a variety of people? Or do you choose to evacuate,” Rodriguez said. Florida’s Emergency Management Director Jared Moskowitz said the agency is monitoring virus concerns while planning for a potentially active hurricane season. For example, increasing the number of shelters, leaving more space per family, and having a lot of essential supplies like masks and thermometers. On its...
