    Amazon founder Jeff Bezos asked the Biden Administration's new Disinformation Board to review the president's tweet claiming that growing inflation could be tamed by raising corporate taxes.  Joe Biden, who has faced criticism over the 40-year high rates which hit 8.3 percent, tweeted on Friday that taxing corporations more would help ease the economic strain impacting Americans.  'You want to bring down inflation? Let's make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share,' Biden tweeted. Bezos responded within hours, claiming the president was conflating two seperate issues that only amounted to misdirection, and should be held accountable by the Department of Homeland Security's Disinformation Board. 'The newly created Disinformation Board should review this tweet, or maybe they need to form a new Non Sequitur Board instead,' Bezos tweeted.  'Raising corp taxes is fine to discuss. Taming inflation is critical to discuss. Mushing them together is just misdirection.'  President Joe Biden claimed that raising corporate taxes would help tackle inflation Amazon founder Jeff Bezos said the president's claim were just misdirection and called on DHS's new Disinformation Board to review Biden's...
    Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell has been named as one of the top officials owning and trading the same type of individual securities the Fed itself was buying during the pandemic last year.  Powell ordered a sweeping review of the ethics rules governing financial holdings and dealings by senior officials at the US central bank after Fed presidents sold millions in stock options last year.  Now the chief of the Fed himself has been reported to have owned the same type of municipal bonds that were purchased by the Fed, according to CNBC.  According to CNBC, Powell held between $1.25 million and $2.5 million of municipal bonds, a small portion of his total reported assets.  The bonds were purchased before 2019, but were held last year while the Fed bought more than $5 billion in munis, including one from the state of Illinois purchased by his family trust in 2016.  Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell (pictured in 2021) has ordered a sweeping review of the ethics rules governing financial holdings and dealings by senior officials at the US central bank....
    President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden will visit all three sites of the 9/11 terrorist attacks next Saturday to mark the 20th anniversary of the attacks. The pair will visit New York City; Shanksville, PA, and the Pentagon. Vice President Kamala Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff will similarly travel to Shanksville for a separate event and will then join the president and first lady at the Pentagon. Biden’s visits will come less than two weeks after U.S. troops completed their withdrawal from Afghanistan — ending the 20 year war that was sparked by 9/11. “America went to Afghanistan 20 years ago to defeat the forces that attacked this country on September 11th,” Biden said in a statement. “That mission resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden over a decade ago and the degradation of al Qaeda. And yet, 10 years later, when I became President, a small number of U.S. troops still remained on the ground, in harm’s way, with a looming deadline to withdraw them or go back to open combat.” Yesterday, Biden issued...
                      by Andrew Kerr  Former Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell said President Joe Biden’s 90-day COVID origins investigation is an insult to the career intelligence officials who have been probing the virus’s origins for well over a year and will continue to do so as new information comes in. Grenell, who led the intelligence community during the early months of the pandemic from February to May 2020, said Biden’s May 26, 2021, directive to the intelligence community to “redouble their efforts” to determine the origins of the virus shows the president never paid attention to the evidence he likely received during his daily briefings. “The 90-day review that Joe Biden has asked for is sadly because he hasn’t looked at the information in a while,” Grenell told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “It says more about his lack of daily interaction with briefers than anything else.” “Every single day there are massive amounts of people on the China team, on the health team and on the State Department team...
    Exclusive: This is how they persecuted Mosin ‘s killers 3:54 (CNN) – A “small number” of Colombians detained in connection with the investigation into the assassination of the Haitian president have participated in U.S. military training and education programs in the past when they were part of the Colombian military, the Pentagon reported this Thursday. “A review of our training databases indicates that a small number of Colombians detained as part of this investigation have participated in past US military training and education programs, while serving as active members of the Colombian Armed Forces. Our review is ongoing, so we have no further details at this time. Defense Department spokesman Lt. Col. Ken Hoffman said in a written statement. “The department regularly trains thousands of military men and women representing partner countries in South America, Central America and the Caribbean. This training emphasizes and promotes respect for human rights, compliance with the status quo and submission of the military to democratically elected civilian leadership,” Hoffman added. The Washington Post was the first to report on the training program.A former...

    Palm Beach officials are conducting a 'legal review' of Donald Trump's use of Mar-a-Lago as a residence because of a 1993 permit that restricts long-term stays at the resort. But Eric Trump, the former president's son and an executive vice president of the Trump Organization, said his father is within his rights to stay at the exclusive club as long as he chooses.   Trump signed a 'special exception use' agreement in 1993 that let him convert the historic mansion into a for-profit social club. But the agreement includes a clause that limits stays to no more than 10 guests at one time, for no longer than seven days at a time, up to three non-consecutive visits a year.  Neighbors have claimed that Trump has violated the agreement in the past, and Wednesday marks seven days since he flew there prior to President Joe Biden's January 20 inauguration.  The agreement is 'under legal review' by Palm Beach's town attorney John Randolph, Town Manager Kirk Blouin said. Eric Trump argues that his father Donald, left, has a legal right to make Mar-a-Lago...
    Ex-White House coronavirus coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx claims former President Donald Trump was being fed ‘parallel’ data sets on the pandemic from another source inside the White House and ‘presented graphs’ she never made. Birx made the claims in an interview with CBS News’ Face the Nation on Sunday in which she also insisted that some members of the Trump Administration believed COVID-19 was a ‘hoax’. ‘I saw the president presenting graphs that I never made,’ Birx said in the interview. ‘So, I know that someone — or someone out there or someone inside was creating a parallel set of data and graphics that were shown to the president.’ ‘I know what I sent up and I know that what was in his hands was different from that,’ the doctor continued.  Scroll down for video  Ex-White House coronavirus coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx claims former President Donald Trump was being fed ‘parallel’ data sets on the pandemic from another source inside the White House and was ‘presenting graphs’ she never made  Birx and Donald Trump during a White House...
    THE Pass in Review is an inaugural tradition that honors the peaceful transition of power. The President and Vice President stand on the steps of the East Front of the Capitol building to review military troops before the celebration of the inaugural day Parade. 2The Pass in Review is a long-standing inauguration day tradition, dating back to 1789Credit: The Mega Agency What is the Pass in Review? The Pass in Review is where the President and Vice President, hosted by the Commander of the Joint Task Force-National, review the readiness of military troops. Each branch of the military will be represented at the event. More than 5,000 men and women in uniform usually provide military ceremonial support to the inauguration but numbers will be scaled back this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The tradition of an inaugural parade dates back to when George Washington took the oath on April 30 1789. Thomas Jefferson's first inauguration in 1801 was the first to take place in the new capital city Washington. The Marine Band has played in every presidential inauguration...
    New York : The president-elect has among his priorities the battle against climate change. Photo: Drew Angerer / . As had been anticipated, the president Joe biden will seek to reverse several of the president’s policies Donald trump, including the return of the United States to the Paris Agreement against climate change. The decision is part of the 17 actions between executive orders, memoranda and other guidelines. “The president-elect will sign the instrument of reincorporation to the Paris Agreement”, advanced the team of the democrat. This would take effect 30 days after signing. “The United States will once again be in a position to exercise global leadership in promoting the objectives of the Agreement.” Highlights that implement policies to reverse President Trump’s environmental actions, in order to protect public health and the environment based on science. Another order will ask all executive departments and agencies to review and take immediate action on federal regulations and executive actions in the next four years. “Review of fuel economy and vehicle emissions”, indicates.

    So what would I do if I had to vote on impeachment in the Senate? From the first, I’ve described President Trump’s behavior on Jan. 6 as impeachable – particularly in the context of what went on in the weeks since the election, but even without that. I was not trying to be cute. ANDREW McCARTHY: WHY DEMOCRATS NEED A DO-OVER ON THEIR IMPEACHMENT ARTICLE I have been wrestling with the wisdom of proceeding with impeachment due to the lateness of Trump’s term. But I would not call something impeachable unless it was serious enough to be condemnable by conviction, removal, and disqualification. Indeed, I have written a book about impeachment, "Faithless Execution," in which I argued that several actions taken by President Obama were impeachable. None of them was as egregious as what President Trump did – and, especially, what he omitted to do – on Jan. 6.

    Donald Trump has become the first US president to face impeachment proceedings twice. What do the American dailies think of this? Newspaper. MOn Wednesday, a majority of elected House of Representatives voted to formally indict Donald Trump for inciting violence on Capitol Hill, paving the way for a historic second trial of the President of the United States. “Impeached again”, “again indicted” is what stands out most in the press “made in US”. Deserved The threshold of 217 votes in favor of indicting Donald Trump was exceeded, the Democratic-majority House therefore adopted the indictment against the Republican president, and this a second time, a year after being accused of ‘pressuring the Ukrainian president in exchange for information about Joe Biden. For the Washington Post “there is no doubt” that the outgoing president “deserved” it. But this trial could have serious consequences for Joe Biden. Indeed, such a procedure “would eclipse the first days of the elected president, slowing down the confirmation of the members of his cabinet” as well as its program, notes...
    It isn't normal for an American political party to cling to a defeated, one-term president. But by all indications, since the Nov. 3 election, nearly the entirety of the Republican Party appears to have collectively committed itself, for the foreseeable future, to the fortunes of a demonstrably unstable and mercurial reality TV show personality—one whose political acumen over the course of the past four years has been questionable at best. I say “at best” because the worst seems to have escaped their notice. The plain fact that American voters rendered a decisively negative verdict towards this person, consigning him to that uncomfortable circle of hell generally reserved for one-term-only American presidents, doesn’t seem to have made any impression at all up to this point. Nearly every member of the GOP has dutifully fallen into line, actively supportive or in complicity while silently regarding Dear Leader’s post-election tactics despite the incredibly corrosive effects those efforts have had on our country. And all of them seem to agree that their best course of action over the next four years will be to cleave tightly to his...
    Editors of the conservative National Review magazine have described Donald Trump's refusal to concede as 'a bid for infamy' in an unusually harsh op-ed ridiculing the president. As an increasing number of Republicans urge the president to respect the results of the democratic process, the editors, led by Rich Lowry, called on Trump to accept defeat with grace, for the good of the country. They pointed out in an article on Friday that his legal challenges were going nowhere, and only served to embarrass the nation. Thursday's press conference at the RNC headquarters - which saw Rudy Giuliani drip with sweaty hair dye down his face and Sidney Powell claim that Venezuela, China and Cuba was involved in a plot to undermine the result - was described as 'the most outlandish and irresponsible performance ever by a group of lawyers representing a president of the United States.'  Thursday's press conference with Rudy Giuliani (pictured) was described as 'outlandish' Giuliani on Thursday staged a riveting press conference to make wild accusations of fraud Sidney Powell, who was dropped by...
    The Biden transition team has appointed a number of experienced out LGBTQ experts to its agency review teams. The group working on President-elect Joe Biden's transition to the White House has announced the members of its agency review teams. The staffers include 10 openly LGBTQ people, some of whom worked in the Obama administration. The transition team announced about 500 people in total for the review teams, which it said are "responsible for understanding the operations of each agency, ensuring a smooth transfer of power, and preparing for President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris and their cabinet to hit the ground running on Day One." One of the openly LGBTQ staffers is Shawn Skelly, appointed to the team reviewing the Department of Defense. Skelly served in the Obama administration as special assistant to the undersecretary of defense for acquisition.
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on President-elect Joe Biden (all times local): 3:25 p.m. President-elect Joe Biden has released the names of his agency review teams, the groups of transition staffers that are typically afforded access to key agencies in the current administration to help smooth the transfer of power. The president’s transition team released the names of hundreds of people on the teams. They’ll collect and review information ranging from budgetary and staffing decisions, pending regulations and other work in progress from current staff at the federal departments. It remains unclear, however, how much engagement the Biden transition staffers will have with their counterparts at the various government agencies because President Donald Trump’s administration has yet to formally recognize Biden as the president-elect. A formal recognition from the General Services Administration is needed to allow Biden transition staff access to federal workers and much of the information they’ll need. More than half of the staff on the teams are women, and approximately 40% “represent communities historically underrepresented in the federal government, including people of color, people who identify as...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on President-elect Joe Biden (all times local): 9 a.m. President-elect Joe Biden will launch an “agency review teams” this coming week. It's the group of transition staffers that have access to key agencies in the current administration to smooth the transfer of power. The teams will collect and review information such as budgetary and staffing decisions, pending regulations and other work in progress from current staff at the federal departments. The teams are meant to lay much of the groundwork so that the thousands of new staffers and appointees who will take over in January will have a road map and guidelines for how to continue the federal government’s work without pause, and how to shift the departments toward Biden’s priorities. Biden’s campaign launched a transition team in May, and they’ve been working alongside designated staffers in President Donald Trump’s administration on transition planning for months. But the agency review process begins in earnest after a new president is elected. Biden has just over 10 weeks to prepare before he is inaugurated. On Monday, he...

    With less than a month to go before the election, Amazon held back the release of the Amanda Milius documentary The Plot Against the President for almost two weeks, saying that the movie needed a “content review” before it could stream on its Prime Video platform. Filmmaker Amanda Milius told Breitbart News that she and her distributor submitted the movie to Amazon on October 10 so that viewers at home could rent or purchase the title digitally.  But they were informed six days later that Amazon was conducting a “content review” of the movie. When they inquired about the delay, they said Amazon sent them a vague reply: “We do not have any insight on the ETA for the title. Thanks for your patience with us during this time.” Amazon finally released the movie on Thursday — 12 days after it was first submitted — after a journalist from The Hollywood Reporter inquired about the hold up.  Breitbart News separately asked Amazon about the nature of the “content review” but a spokesperson declined to comment. Normally, Amazon takes between two to four days...
