    Keeping the ball out of Najee Harris’ hands is bad news for Kenny Pickett and the entire Pittsburgh Steelers offense. The Pittsburgh Steelers plan on limiting Najee Harris’ touches, which is bad news for Kenny Pickett and the rest of the offense. Pittsburgh used a first-round pick on the former Doak Walker winner out of Alabama last spring. Harris did lead the NFL in touches and offensive snaps a season ago, but the Steelers need him to be the focal point of their offense now. Unless they believe Mitch Trubisky can be a Pro Bowler again, or Pickett is ready to carry the weight of the world on his shoulders, what are they doing?! Here is what Harris said about the matter on Tuesday prior to the beginning of Steelers minicamp.“We are doing that a lot this year (where) I will not be on the field, I guess, (as much),” said Harris on Tuesday before day one of Steelers minicamp. “I will be on the field a lot — but on certain downs, I will not be on the field. Just (pick...
    Vice President Kamala Harris quickly learned not to come between President Biden and his negotiations with Congress, when the president once snapped at her so harshly even Republican senators in the meeting were shocked. In a meeting last May, Biden tried to persuade Republican lawmakers to support $1 trillion in infrastructure spending.  And while Biden was ready for a compromise, Harris thought the bill was skimpy.  'Harris thought that there was something missing from the conversation,' New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns wrote in their book, This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future. She began turning the conversation toward Democratic priorities, including family and social spending, which were originally included in the larger Build Back Better bill.  She 'began to make the case for a larger package than the one Republicans seemed to have in mind.'  'Biden dismissed her comment immediately,' the authors wrote, in so harsh a tone 'that even the Republican senators were taken aback.'   Biden was typically 'scrupulously respectful' of his second-in-command, but the moment revealed that infrastructure negotiations...
    (CNN)Top Biden administration officials, including President Joe Biden himself, are hitting the road in the days after the State of the Union address, fanning out across the country to amplify aspects of his agenda highlighted in the speech, the White House told CNN exclusively. "They will travel to red states, blue states, big cities, small towns, rural areas, Tribal communities, and more to showcase how the Biden-Harris Administration is delivering results and changing lives for the better," a White House official said. The travel, the official added, "will highlight the President's mission to unite the country around issues where there has historically been support from both Republicans and Democrats," including his Tuesday evening remarks on mental health, the opioid epidemic, ending cancer, supporting veterans and rebuilding infrastructure. Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and Cabinet officials will travel across the Midwest and East Coast of the US in the coming days.On Wednesday, Biden is set to deliver remarks on the bipartisan infrastructure bill and highlight its impacts on roads and bridges in Superior, Wisconsin, alongside first lady Jill Biden and infrastructure...
    Vice President Kamala Harris said Wednesday that it was Congress's  fault President Biden could not fulfill his promise on immigration reform. In an interview with Noticias Telemundo, Biden's 'root causes' immigration czar  was asked: 'Elections are in a couple months' time. I'm sure you are aware the border is going to be an issue, also President Biden promised immigration reform he hasn't been able to deliver. Why would you say Latinos should vote for the Democrats this November?' Harris sidestepped the question, instead saying that 'Congress is not acting' on immigration.  'The first piece of legislation that was sent to congress was immigration reform,' Harris said.  Biden's sweeping day-one immigration plan would have legalized more than 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the U.S. It would have also removed barriers to family-based migration, such as lengthy visa backlogs and employment-based green card requirements, and had little shot of ever getting the 10 Republican votes needed in the Senate to pass. 'It was our first initiative to say we must have a pathway to citizenship. The problem is that Congress...
    In a statement introducing the "Root Causes Strategy," the White House touted Harris's five-pillar plan as a core component of the administration's efforts to "establish a fair, orderly, and humane immigration system" through "various U.S. government tools, including diplomacy, foreign assistance, public diplomacy, and sanctions." But instead of offering concrete solutions to secure the country's southern border amid an unprecedented surge of migrants, the administration deferred to using feel-good language and offering abstract aspirations about addressing the "humanitarian" crisis in Central America. The lofty, feel-good language can be felt in the plan's stated five pillars, which go as follows, according to a White House fact sheet: Pillar I: Addressing economic insecurity and inequality; Pillar II: Combating corruption, strengthening democratic governance, and advancing the rule of law; Pillar III: Promoting respect for human rights, labor rights, and free press; Pillar IV: Countering and preventing violence, extortion, and other crimes perpetrated by criminal gangs, trafficking networks, and other organized criminal organizations; and Pillar V: Combating sexual, gender-based, and domestic violence. Nowhere in the five-pillar plan does Harris —...
    Someone at the Conservative Political Action Conference is handing out cards touting a 'seven-point plan' to return Donald Trump to the presidency 'within days'. The so-called 'Trump Cards' touting the improbable plan were first spotted by Forbes political reporter Andrew Solender, who said that an attendee at CPAC Dallas on Friday sent him a photo of the card. In short, the plan calls for exposing the Democrats for monstrous crimes, electing Trump as House speaker, and impeaching and removing President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. The plan includes a link to a website that elaborates on the proposal, describing the seven 'dominoes' that must fall to reinstall Trump in the White House. Each step seems unlikely, if not impossible.

    Vice President Kamala Harris used her Friday visit to the border to claim the Biden administration had made progress handling the surge in migrants attempting to reach the United States but said little on how the White House intends to halt the flow — or even slow it down. She praised efforts to speed processing times for newly arrived migrants and touted her work targeting the factors driving people to leave their home countries in record numbers. "I am meeting with a lot of folks, and the work that we have begun is the work that is going to be ongoing," Harris said, with long-term investment in the Western Hemisphere a crucial component. Tasked with forging a diplomatic solution to the surge, Harris met with leaders in Mexico and Guatemala this month. She announced private-sector investments in the region in a bid to boost economic opportunity and aid to groups working to fight corruption. Both problems are viewed by administration officials as major drivers of migration. As they work to quell these medium- and long-term drivers,...
    Vice President Kamala Harris said she always planned on visiting the Southern Border during her first trip to Texas to see the border crisis after months of dodging questions about her lack of presence. “I’m glad to be here–it was always the plan to come here–and I think we’re going to have a good and productive day.” [email protected] Kamala Harris at the U.S.-Mexico border: “I’m glad to be here — it was always the plan to come here.” pic.twitter.com/qDxDKPEaAE — The Recount (@therecount) June 25, 2021 Harris said the plan to visit the border has been in place since March.

    Vice President Kamala Harris visited a border patrol facility on Friday, telling reporters she had been planning to do so since March. “I said back in March I was going to come to the border so this is not a new plan,” she said. Harris visited the border with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL). “I’m glad to be here. This was always the plan to come here. And I think we’ll have a good and productive day,” she added Harris delayed visiting the border until 93 days after Biden appointed her to lead on the crisis. After taking on the role, Harris consistently resisted the idea of traveling to the border — even laughing off questions about a possible trip. “Not today,” she replied with a laugh in late March when asked if she would visit the border.

    Joe Biden may have lost a step, but his handlers work fast. Within hours of the inauguration in January, Biden’s White House opened America’s borders to the world — not simply to job seekers and gang members from Mexico and Central America, but to varieties of illegal migrants from all over the globe – from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Virtually anyone who could get to Mexico was admitted into the United States without a visa. In some cases, foreign nationals whose identities we can’t verify were flown to the interior of our country and permanently resettled without the permission of the people who already live there. Americans. How did migrants from Congo get to Lewiston, Maine? And why? Well, because Susan Rice very much wants to change Maine’s demographics, as well as the population mix in every other state in the union. So the administration is working to do that, by fiat, without a vote in Congress or public consent of any kind. By definition, this is the most radical possible attack on the core premise of democracy,...
    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Vice President Kamala Harris planned to tour clean energy laboratories on the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee campus Tuesday during her first Wisconsin visit since taking office. Wisconsin Republicans said instead of coming to the Upper Midwest state, Harris’ time would be better spent at the U.S. border dealing with the increase of migrants trying to cross from Mexico.

Harris was also scheduled to participate in a roundtable discussion about the investments in research and development proposed in President Joe Biden’s $2.3 trillion infrastructure jobs plan, which would rebuild roads and bridges, boost broadband access and make other improvements. Harris has been touting the plan, unveiled in March, at stops across the country. Republicans say the plan is too expensive and are calling for it to be scaled back. Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, in a statement Tuesday, called Biden’s plan a “boondoggle” and said he was interested to see how Harris justifies the spending. “Instead of creating more opportunities, it will kill people’s jobs,...
    The Biden administration is launching a fresh cross-country blitz to mark their 100 days in office and to tout the president's proposed infrastructure spending. The day after President Biden makes his first address to a joint session of Congress, he and first lady Jill Biden are set to visit Atlanta on Thursday to mark 100 days since his inauguration. The visit will include appearances by Democratic senators Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, who won special elections in January cementing the Democratic Senate majority that made passage of Mr. Biden's American Rescue Plan possible, White House officials tell CBS News.  Officials conceded the visit to the Atlanta area is essentially a makeup for his first visit to the Peach State in March, which had to be rearranged as it came just days after a series of shootings that left eight people dead at Atlanta-area spas. The Georgia visit is the official kickoff of "The Getting America Back on Track Tour," roughly 10 days of travel that will take top members of the Biden administration to roughly a dozen states, officials...
    Vice President Kamala Harris arrived in New Hampshire on Friday for her sixth domestic trip since she was placed in charge of border diplomacy.  While in the northern state, which is on the border with Canada, she'll be focused on promoting President Joe Biden's $2 trillion infrastructure plan, attending a listening session, visiting a local union and making remarks. Harris has yet to visit the Southern border after Biden named her the point person on the surge in migration there.  At her first stop in New Hampshire, the vice president visited the New Hampshire Electric Cooperative, where she pushed for more broadband internet access - a key item in Biden's infrastructure bill. A similar provision is in the Republicans counter legislation on infrastructure.  A few protesters were on hand to greet her, one held a sign shaped like an arrow that read: 'Mexico -- 2,254 mi.' But Harris kept her focus on the topic at hand.   'Many of us grew up with - you know, we had to do our homework and if you needed help you went to the Encyclopedia...

    Savannah Rychcik April 13, 2021 0 Comments Vice President Kamala Harris is recognizing President Joe Biden’s American Jobs Plan as the “biggest American jobs investment since World War II.” In an op-ed published by USA Today, Harris acknowledged “at least 10 million Americans are still unemployed” amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “Many worked in lower-wage jobs and more than 4 million have been out of work for more than 27 weeks. Recently, President Joe Biden announced the American Jobs Plan. Through a historic investment in our nation’s infrastructure — one that will rebuild our nation and strengthen our economic foundation — this plan will create millions of jobs,” Harris wrote in the article published Monday. She continued, “In fact, this plan represents the biggest American jobs investment since World War II.” The vice president claimed there is “one big difference” between Biden’s plan and previous infrastructure initiatives. “The laborers who risked their lives to build the railroad earned next to nothing. The Hoover Dam workforce lived in a camp known as ‘Ragtown’ and were prevented from unionizing. And...
    One of the 500 electric buses New York City has begun purchasing. As soon as the word “infrastructure” shows up in a commentary most readers bail out. Everybody knows it’s crucial to our civilized existence, but could anything be more boring to actually discuss? For the next several months, however, discussion of the Biden-Harris proposal for the greening of the nation’s physical and human infrastructure is going to be ferocious.  That’s because Republicans want to make appropriations for infrastructure only about filling potholes, repairing rusty bridges, and adding extra lanes on freeways. Most of the green stuff and especially the environmental justice stuff in the proposal, they want to jettison. Which is no surprise given that, in 2021, we still have 139 members of Congress who are climate science deniers who want to smash what they assert is an authoritarian green agenda. They and most of the rest of the congressional Republicans will justify their opposition to other parts of the infrastructure plan with OMG the debt! and Biden wants to raise your taxes. In other words, we’ll get another round of the typical myopic, devil-take-the-hindmost scam that Republicans have been running on Americans for half...
    By DARLENE SUPERVILLE, Associated Press LAS VEGAS (AP) — She needed no introduction, but the vice president offered one anyway. “I’m Kamala Harris,” the vice president told the women behind a coffee counter at the Culinary Academy, where job seekers learn how to make lattes and other coffee drinks to become baristas.

    President Joe Biden, first lady Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff will go on the road next week to pitch the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 economic relief package Mr. Biden signed on Thursday.  In what the White House has dubbed the "Help is Here" tour, either the president, the vice president or their spouses are expected to be on the road nearly every day next week.

    In a recent interview with the 19th, a nonprofit progressive news outlet, Kamala Harris was asked a series of blunt questions about the responsibility she bears as the nation’s first Black vice president. What does it mean for Black Americans to hear her “speak truth” about the racial disparities in deaths from COVID-19? And what role does Harris think she plays in helping Black people overcome a hesitancy to vaccines and in dismantling decades of bias in the nation’s healthcare system? Harris, to her credit, didn’t miss a beat. “When I took that oath on Jan. 20, there were a whole lot of people standing on that stage with me,” she said. “And you may not have seen them, but they were in my heart, they were in my mind when I had my hand on the Bible and raised my hand to take that oath. And I feel the weight of the responsibility that comes with that.” It’s a sign of our progressive times just how unafraid Black politicians are to openly talk about what they owe the Black...

    Jon Ossoff and David Perdue, candidates for Senate from Georgia.Reuters; Getty Images If Democrats achieve a majority in the Senate, a number of relief measures targeted at renters struggling amid the pandemic – including a right to counsel for those facing eviction and a larger pot of money for back rent – will have a better chance of materializing. It's already been announced that Rev. Raphael Warnock, a Democrat, won the Georgia U.S. Senate runoff. John Ossoff, the other Democrat in the race, is leading Republican Sen. David Perdue with 98% of the expected vote counted, but NBC said the race remained too close to call. If Ossoff wins, the Senate will be evenly split, giving Democrats control of Congress since Vice President-elect Kamala Harris would be able to make the tie-breaking vote. After months of negotiations, Democrats and Republicans struck a deal on another stimulus package last month that extended the national eviction ban through January and allocated $25 billion for rental assistance. That relief was a sliver of what Democrats had pushed for. Zoom In...

    Getty Joe Biden has supported stimulus checks in the past. Where does he stand on them now that he is President-elect? Neither Biden, nor Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris, have mentioned stimulus checks specifically since the presidential election last week. However, Biden’s support for stimulus relief is still up on his site, and one of his first acts as President-Elect was to announce the formation of a coronavirus task force. Here’s what you need to know:Where Biden & Harris Stand on Stimulus ReliefBiden’s official website indicates he would do the following to remedy the pandemic-induced crisis in America: Provide another stimulus check “should conditions require.” Forgive $10,000 per person of federal student loans, minimum. Increase monthly Social Security checks by $200 each. Offer emergency paid sick leave to every American worker. Ensure that no one has to pay out of pocket for COVID-19 testing, treatment or any future relevant vaccine. Provide “all necessary fiscal relief.” Biden’s economic plan does acknowledge the possibility of stimulus payments, saying a proposal “could include cash payments to working families,” but that’s...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is calling for major changes in America’s health care system. That may sound appealing to many Americans at first glance but would lead to bankrupting Medicare and ultimately forcing most or all of us onto a substandard system of single-payer government health care. In a major flaw, the plan being pitched by Democratic presidential nominee Biden and his running mate — Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif. — does nothing to deal with the soaring costs of health care. In sharp contrast, President Trump has an effective plan to improve health care. But his administration and campaign have not effectively communicated it. The Trump administration has been focused on the universal reduction of the cost of medical services and prescription drug prices. This is vital because health care costs have been skyrocketing out of control for years. DR.

    (CNN)California Sen. Kamala Harris could be forced into the uncomfortable position on Wednesday night of explaining her past support of "Medicare for All," a proposal the Trump campaign has described as a socialized takeover of American health care -- and Harris' running mate, Democratic nominee Joe Biden, has long opposed. Biden's attempt to talk through his own plan, which would shore up the Affordable Care Act and add a public insurance option to the mix, set off one of the most contentious exchanges of last week's historically ill-tempered presidential debate.5 things to look for in tonights vice presidential debatePresident Donald Trump, interrupting repeatedly, insisted that the Democratic nominee backed Sen. Bernie Sanders' Medicare for All bill, which would create a national health insurance system -- a false claim that Biden frustratedly rejected over and over.Vice President Mike Pence is widely expected to push a similar line against Harris in their own debate, attaching her -- and Biden, by connection -- to Sanders' vision. The difference: Pence won't, in tying Harris to Medicare for All, be totally off-base. The California senator...

            by Kaylee Greenlee  The Biden-Harris immigration plan could allow up to 52 million new immigrants to settle in the U.S., according to a Federation for American Immigration Reform analysis provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation. “This dramatic increase would eclipse the entire current foreign-born population of the country,” the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), a nonprofit that advocates for reduced immigration, stated. The campaign’s proposals, which include eliminating detention for many illegal border crossers, halting border wall construction, and scaling back deportation, would also increase the taxpayer-funded costs of services and benefits for illegal immigrants to more than $200 billion annually — a 50% increase, according to FAIR’s analysis. “Campaigns are an opportunity for candidates to present to the voters their vision on important policy matters,” FAIR President Dan Stein said said in a statement. “To their credit, the Biden-Harris campaign has done just that on immigration policy.” “But policy proposals are not just words on paper,” he continued. “If implemented, they will have quantifiable results. They can mean more legal and illegal immigration or...
    Netflix Cheer star Jerry Harris will remain in federal custody after being charged with child pornography because his lawyer said there is no plan yet for where he could go if he was released on bail.  At a federal court hearing in Chicago on Monday, a judge granted a request from the 21-year-old celebrity cheerleader's lawyer to keep him in custody for now. The lawyer asked the judge to postpone any decision on Harris' bond until they had determined a plan for where he could stay if he was released.

The campaign’s proposals, which include eliminating detention for many illegal border crossers, halting border wall construction, and scaling back deportation, would also increase the taxpayer-funded costs of services and benefits for illegal immigrants to more than $200 billion annually — a 50% increase, according to FAIR’s analysis. “Campaigns are an opportunity for candidates to present to the voters their vision on important policy matters,” FAIR President Dan Stein said said in a statement. “To their credit, the Biden-Harris campaign has done just that on immigration policy.” “But policy proposals are not just words on paper,” he continued. “If implemented, they will have quantifiable results. They can mean more legal and illegal immigration or less; greater costs to taxpayers, or...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), running mate of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, suggested during an ABC News interview that aired on Sunday that eliminating private health insurance was one of the “great ideas” to fix problems in the health care system. Harris also blatantly lied about her past support for government-run health care. “And you know I ask you this because you have pressure from the Left, you have pressure from the center, you’re trying to appeal to Republicans, and so on sort of the evolution on the issues when you talk about health care that you see eye to eye—do you see a day where private insurance would go away as you once proposed?” ABC News host David Muir asked. “No, and in fact that my plan, when I was running, was that we would not eliminate private insurance,” Harris falsely claimed. “And Joe and I—” “Even though you signed on for Medicare for All?” Muir asked. “I signed on to that. I signed on to a number of bills that were about great ideas to fix the problem,”...

    If presidential nominee Joe Biden wins in November and Democrats take the Senate, the former vice president will face an internal battle in the Democratic Party over health care, The Hill reported. Biden ran his campaign around a government-run public option as opposed to Bernie Sanders’ bill, which is perceived by Biden and his allies as too radical. In the scenario mentioned above, the publication claims that this battle will move to Congress. If Democrats take the Senate, a Democratic aide claimed there would be plenty of moderates to push back against progressives, who believe that the Biden’s plan is not sufficient — especially in light of the coronavirus pandemic. But according to a health care industry source, many within the industry expect Democrats not to jump right to Biden’s proposal but instead to begin making adjustments to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare. Conversely, Rep. Robin Kelly, who is part of Biden and Sanders’ unity task force, claims that full Democrat control will bring change and the industry House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed in June that...
