    Appearing on Fox News on Sunday, December 19, Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia declared that he remains a “no” vote on the Build Back Better Act of 2021 — a declaration that has infuriated many of his fellow Democrats. The centrist senator cited the cost of the bill and worries about inflation as reasons why he isn’t supporting the bill, but according to HuffPost reporters Tara Golshan and Arthur Delaney, he has privately said that he doesn’t trust poor people to use money wisely. “In recent months,” Golshan and Delaney report, “Manchin has told several of his fellow Democrats that he thought parents would waste monthly child tax credit payments on drugs instead of providing for their children, according to two sources familiar with the senator’s comments. Continuing the child tax credit for another year is a core part of the Build Back Better legislation that Democrats had hoped to pass by the end of the year. The policy has already cut child poverty by nearly 30%.” The reporters add, “Manchin’s private comments shocked several senators, who saw it...

"Economic factors are not new to the extent that other research has documented it before, but what was different with our survey was that the numbers citing those factors are bigger than any other conducted in the past," said Ariel Ruiz, the lead researcher of the report.  The report comes as migration from Central America has increased substantially over the past three decades,...
    According to a report from the Atlantic's Peter Nicholas, a close adviser to former president Donald Trump admitted they are "rehearsing" arguments intended to convince the former president that another presidential run in 2024 could end in disaster and embarrassment. As Nicholas wrote, despite polls showing Trump to be the odds-on choice to be the Republican Party presidential nominee in 2024, there are signs that there is a building movement against him among conservatives who are being more vocal about moving on without him. Noting the election of Republican Glenn Youngkin as the new governor of Virginia who kept his distance from the twice-impeached former president as one key data point, Nicholas wrote that Trump's influence over GOP lawmakers is showing cracks. According to Nicholas, "If Donald Trump tries to run for president again, one of his former campaign advisers has a plan to dissuade him. Anticipating that Trump may not know who Adlai Stevenson was or that he lost two straight presidential elections in the 1950s, this ex-adviser figures he or someone else might need to explain the man's...

    Hunter Biden once offered to sell a major US company information and analysis on Oleg Deripaska, the Russian oligarch currently under federal investigation, emails from his abandoned laptop show, according to a new report.

    Apple threatened to remove Facebook's apps from the App Store in 2019, following a BBC report that showed human traffickers set up 'slave markets' to sell women to the highest bidder, according to The Wall Street Journal. The WSJ obtained internal documents from the social media firm that detail how its own employees were searching for human traffickers in the Middle East. Facebook investigators found these groups posted advertisements for domestic workers as a front for selling women off as slaves or sex workers. The WSJ found that Facebook does remove some of these pages, but it has yet to design a system that stops offenders from reposting under a new account.

    President Biden is expected to announce a new group to share defense technology with Britain and Australia on Wednesday designed to push back against the rise of China.  He is due to speak at 5pm on 'a national security initiative,' but the White House has not released further details. The working group, known by the acronym AUUKUS, will allow the three allies to share information in technological areas such as artificial intelligence, cyber, underwater systems and long-range strike capabilities, according to Politico, citing a White House official and congressional staffer.  Both characterized the plan as a move to counter China's rise in the technology and military sectors.   It is one of a string of initiatives designed to demonstrate Washington's global role after the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan. Biden will next week host his first in-person summit of leaders of the Quad nations — made up of Australia, India, Japan and the United States — which have been coordinating against China's growing reach.

    The practice of awarding ambassadorships to high-dollar political donors is alive and well under the Biden administration, according to a report Tuesday by a conservative watchdog group. The American Accountability Foundation found that 22 individuals recently nominated by President Joe Biden to serve “diplomatically critical appointments” had contributed a combined $3.2 million in lifetime donations to Democratic politicians and political groups. “Biden rewards top jobs to political loyalists who donated thousands, if not millions of dollars to his political campaign and party. These critical positions are supposed to be filled with individuals who will represent America’s interests abroad,” the AAF wrote in its report. “Putting the most qualified into positions to benefit millions of Americans seems to be secondary over rewarding political fundraisers.” “We hope Senators, including those who have received contributions from some of the nominees, will seek to confirm nominees to these important positions who are qualified and will put America’s interests first,” the AAF wrote. Examples of high-dollar donors receiving ambassadorship nominations include Thomas Nides, who was nominated by Biden to serve as ambassador to Israel in...
    The Taliban offered President Biden a chance for the situation in Afghanistan to play out entirely differently, telling the US it could either take control of security in Kabul or allow them to do so, according to a report.   Senior US military officials including Gen. Kenneth McKenzie hastily met face-to-face with Abdul Ghani Baradar, head of the Taliban's military wing, who made the US a weighty offer, as reported by the Washington Post.  'We have a problem,' Baradar said, according to a US official.  'We have two options to deal with it: You [the United States military] take responsibility for securing Kabul or you have to allow us to do it.' But Biden was determined to keep his promise to pull out US troops, even with the collapse of the Afghan government. So, McKenzie and other military officials said the US only needed control of the airport until Aug. 31 and the Taliban could secure the city.  The fleeing of President Ashraf Ghani left both the US and the Taliban in shock, as they had reportedly been in talks for an orderly...

    Leaders of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) are preparing to formalize a relationship with the Taliban as the new government of Afghanistan, a Thursday report said. Chinese assessments of the realities of the Afghan battleground pointed at a necessity to reckon with the militant group, should it succeed in overthrowing the Western-backed government, multiple U.S. intelligence sources familiar with the documents told U.S. News & World Report. After the president of Afghanistan, Ashraf Ghani, fled the country earlier Sunday, the Islamist militant group — which was to remain in the outskirts of Kabul — advanced into the capital. These recent developments may spur the Chinese government to expedite the process of recognition of what may now be called the “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan,” according to the sources. (RELATED: OPINION: China Will Win Afghanistan — To America’s Embarrassment) The transition, or re-positioning, from non-state to state begins.

    According to a report from the Daily Beast, an obscure lawyer who managed to get the attention of then-president Donald Trump before the "Stop the Steal' rally on Jan. 6th that preceded the Capitol riot was dumped by his partners and now they refuse to talk about him. As the report notes, Kurt Olson, co-founder of New York's Klafter, Olsen & Lesser -- which has since changed names with him out -- has caught the interest of political observers over how he was able to become a Trump favorite with many in the former administration saying they never met him despite his major influence on Trump. According to the Beast, " Emails released by the House Oversight Committee and reporting by Politico show that after the election, the Maryland attorney rose from relative obscurity in conservative politics to capture the ear of then-President Trump. Despite his access, several lawyers and administration officials intimately involved with the anti-democratic effort did not know or simply couldn't remember Olsen—a reflection of the disjointed and chaotic state of post-election MAGA politics as different factions...
