Biden to public on coronavirus: Trust the science — and me

Biden to public on coronavirus: Trust the science — and me

President Biden devoted his first prime-time address to the pandemic that helped put him in the White House, vowing to follow the science and reassuring voters they can follow him. His address about the pandemic he now owns was all at once grim and somber but also optimistic — and peppered with warnings.“Look, we know what we need to do to beat this virus,” Biden said. “Tell the truth. Follow the science and the scientists. Work together. Put trust and faith in our government to fulfill its most important function, which is protecting the American people.”The remarks come on the anniversary...

Biden faces Republican claims spending bill is packed with pork

Biden faces Republican claims spending bill is packed with pork

The White House's planned victory lap celebrating the passage of President Biden's $1.9 trillion pandemic spending package comes with plenty of political risks, Republicans warn.Republicans argue that Biden's popular spending package is chock-full of provisions . They say the measure substantially adds to the country's ballooning federal deficit, making it almost impossible for future generations to pay back the total borrowed amount — and likely putting a new tax burden on them.And despite team Biden's publicity tour, Republicans are betting voters will share their gripes before the 2022...

John Kerry facing calls to resign by GOP over leaked Iran tapes

is facing mounting calls from Republicans to step down from his position as the U.S. special envoy for climate change for allegedly discussing Israeli military operations with Iran's foreign minister.The backlash against Kerry stems from a report in the New York Times detailing leaked audio recorded in March that captured Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif saying Kerry told him Israel attacked Iran's interests in Syria at least 200 times. It is unclear if the alleged conversation happened when Kerry was acting as President Barack Obama's secretary of state or if it happened...

George W. Bush is a stranger in a strange land in today's GOP

George W. Bush is a stranger in a strange land in today's GOP

Former President George W. Bush finds himself in unfamiliar territory: yukking it up with liberal late-night host Jimmy Kimmel and being feted on other television shows on which celebrities are feted while casting a quizzical eye at the party he led during two terms in the White House.Bush found himself having to walk back an assessment of the Republican Party he gave early in his latest book tour. “I would describe it as isolationist, protectionist, and, to a certain extent, nativist,” he told NBC’s Today show. The 43rd president, out promoting a collection featuring his paintings of...

Census results boost Sun Belt state clout for 2024 presidential race

Both parties' presidential tickets will have to contemplate campaign strategy in 2024 a bit differently than 2020 due to adjustments to how many Electoral College votes each state gets.Texas and Florida, the second- and third-largest states, respectively, will have more votes this time in the 538-member Electoral College. Texas's House delegation will grow to 38 members, meaning it will have 40 electoral votes. And Florida will have 30 electoral votes, one more than in 2020.The gains, driven by population changes over the past decade, were part of a massive dataset released by the on...

Southern border crisis might sink Biden immigration plan

Southern border crisis might sink Biden immigration plan

The uncontrolled surge of migrants at the southern border is being used as a major talking point against President Biden’s preferred immigration legislation and his approach to the issue generally.The Republican National Committee has characterized Biden’s policy as “open borders and closed schools,” hitting the administration on immigration and COVID-19 simultaneously.“Joe Biden’s policies are creating a crisis at the border,” said RNC rapid response director Tommy Pigott in a statement. “Far from reversing these policies, however, Biden is refusing to even a crisis exists. It is a...

Congressional Democrats push a job-killing law even Californians couldn't stand

Congressional Democrats push a job-killing law even Californians couldn't stand

In the 2020 election, 63% of California voters backed President Biden. On the same ballot, those voters essentially repealed a job-killing state law that Biden and Democrats now want to impose on a national level in the form of the PRO Act.That California law, A.B. 5, attempted to force businesses that use contract and freelance workers into hiring them with employee benefits. Instead, it predictably caused freelance work to dry up throughout the state. News conglomerates cut loose their California-based freelancers. A variety of independent contractors, such as truck drivers, professional...

Open the schools now

Open the schools now

One year ago, parents picked up their children from school on a Friday afternoon, knowing that they probably wouldn’t be coming back on Monday. Few suspected that the rest of the school year would be taught remotely.Nobody guessed that an entire year would pass with millions of children out of school. Yet that's exactly what happened. In hundreds of districts, students haven’t seen the inside of a classroom in 52 weeks.We confess to some naivete here. In hindsight, it was predictable that teachers unions would use their clout to hold school districts hostage. It was also predictable that...
