    The Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Dr. Rochelle Walensky has clashed with President Joe Biden's assertion that the coronavirus pandemic is over, instead preferring to say that 'we're in a different place'. Speaking with ABC News Walensky refused to agree with Biden's declaration that the pandemic is in the rear view mirror but she did acknowledge how hospitalization and case rates were falling thanks to the wide availability of vaccines.   Biden made his remarks during his appearance on CBS 60 Minutes on Sunday. 'The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with COVID. We're still doing a lot of work on it, but the pandemic is over. If you notice, no one's wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape and so I think it's changing. And I think this is a perfect example of it,' Biden said while walking around the Detroit Auto Show last week - an event which drew thousands of visitors. The Director of the CDC Dr. Rochelle Walensky refused to agree with the president's claim that the pandemic is...
    Look, there’s been a lot of doom and gloom and hyper-alarmist stuff in the news lately, so here: something to chuckle at for a change. First Lady Jill Biden held a conference at the White House on Wednesday alongside Education Secretary Miguel Cardona, and Labor Secretary Marty Walsh. This was Mrs. Biden’s first public event since recovering from Covid-19, and the panel was focused on discussing the country’s teacher shortage and improving pay for educators. Towards the end of the discussion, Walsh was giving an outline of the Biden administration’s efforts to promote apprenticeships that would intertwine with boosting the teaching profession. Walsh eventually told the room “I’m gonna stop talking right now” because the door swung open and there was the president. “Whatever she says, I agree with,” Biden chirped, much to the room’s amusement. Mr. Biden left right after saying that, and as everyone was laughing, his wife turned to Walsh saying “speaking of partners…” “That’s a wrap,” Walsh declared thereafter to another round of laughs. So there, a little hump-day levity for everyone. Watch...
    President Joe Biden further reacted to a leaked draft opinion from the Supreme Court on Tuesday, criticizing the “radical” argument against a constitutional right to abortion. “The idea that we’re gonna make a judgment that is going to say that no one can make the judgment to choose to abort a child based on a decision by the Supreme Court I think goes way overboard,” Biden said. The president spoke to reporters about the draft opinion as he left Washington, DC, for a trip to Alabama to visit a Lockheed Martin manufacturing facility. During his remarks, Biden falsely claimed that all mainstream religions believe the beginning of human life is open to interpretation. “Look, think what Roe says. Roe says what all basic mainstream religions have historically concluded — that the right — that the existence of a human life and being is a question. Is it at the moment of conception? Is it six months? Is it six weeks?” The president failed to mention that the Catholic Church, of which he claims to be a member, teaches that life...
    Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that he agreed with President Joe Biden’s refusal to send U.S. troops to evacuate Americans in Ukraine. Cassidy said, “This is a culmination of the United States de-arming when it comes to energy diplomacy. Think about it less than one year ago, under the previous administration, we were not only energy-independent but poised to become and have the ability to make the E.U. energy independent. In less than a year, we’ve lost that ability. Russia has the leverage over the E.U. in terms of energy supply in order to blackmail them and turning a blind eye.” Anchor Sandra Smith asked, “The president is strongly encouraging Americans in Ukraine to leave as soon as possible and says that there is no prospect for a U.S. military-led evacuation from inside Ukraine. Should the U.S. be doing more about this?” Cassidy said, “I agree with the president 100 percent. Use some common sense. We should not be endangering our soldiers or Marines, etc., because somebody decides not to evacuate until...
    Joe Biden's message and the promise he made to the American people from the beginning of his campaign for the presidency was that he was going to 'heal and restore America's soul.' Over and over again on the campaign trail, he spoke and pleaded with the American people in an effort to convey that he alone was the antidote to the divisive chaos of the Trump years.  He promised to be a president for all Americans and to usher us out of what was one of the most divided times in American history. We all know he hasn't done that. By any metric, America is becoming a worse place to live, work, and raise our children. The Fourth of July promise of freedom from Covid was little more than an ill-advised photo op. A new Gallup poll just released Monday shows that in 2021, Republicans went from a 9-percentage point deficit in party identification to a 5-point lead. It is the biggest advantage for Republicans since the 1994 'Republican Revolution.' Biden promised to be a president for all Americans and...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki couldn't resist an opportunity to bring former President Donald Trump into the frame when asked on Friday whether Joe Biden or Kamala Harris regretted rushing to judgement in their passionate support of convicted liar Jussie Smollett.  Psaki was asked during the White House briefing on Friday, in light of Smollett's Thursday conviction: 'Since the guilty verdict, are there any lessons learned here on rushing to judgement when a crime is alleged?'  She replied: 'There are lessons learned perhaps for everybody who commented at the time, including former President Trump.'  Psaki then looked down at her notes to read aloud Trump's quote, when he said: 'I can tell you that it’s horrible, it doesn’t get worse'.   She then went on: 'Lying to the police, particularly about something as painful as hate crimes is shameful. 'Instances of that need to be investigated fully and those found guilty need to be punished. False accusations divert valuable police resources, important investigations that make it harder for real victims to come forward and be believed. 'You know, look back at the time....
    Panamanian and Colombian officials this week agreed to impose a daily limit of 650 this month and 500 in September on U.S.-bound global migrants granted safe passage to cross the deadly and treacherous Darien Gap jungle that straddles their mutual border rather than trying to stop them. Without raising any objections, a U.S. State Department official quietly participated in the online event at which U.S. allies Colombia and Panama agreed to allow hundreds of global migrants to travel to reach America’s southern border, which is already facing a record-setting surge of migrants. “By consensus, the humanitarian approach will guide the actions that we agree on for the orderly and controlled passage of migrants on their way north,” Panama’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Erika Moynes, declared during the teleconference. On Thursday, the Associated Press (AP) revealed that Panama and Colombia reached the pact to limit the number of migrants allowed to cross their mutual border undeterred during a teleconference, witnessed by officials from Mexico, the United States, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru. The Biden administration has remained silent about its...
    US President Joe Biden speaks about infrastructure investment from the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the White House campus on April 7, 2021, in Washington, DC.Brendan Smialowski | AFP | Getty Images President Joe Biden will hold his second infrastructure meeting with Democratic and Republican members of Congress on Monday, as GOP lawmakers push to shrink the president's more than $2 trillion plan. Biden aims to approve a package in the coming months that revamps U.S. roads, bridges, airports, broadband, housing and utilities, and invests in job training along with care for elderly and disabled Americans. Republicans have signaled they could support a scaled back bill based around transportation, broadband and water systems. The president has said he wants to craft a bipartisan bill, but Democrats would move to pass legislation on their own through budget reconciliation if they fail to strike a deal with the GOP. As the parties have disparate visions of what qualifies as infrastructure and how big of a role the government should take in improving it, it is unclear what could win support from...
    President Joe Biden and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. Congress returns this week after a two-week recess with just as many crises to deal with as there was before the break, and a Senate just as clogged up as ever thanks in no small part to Democrats Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. Their intransigence on the filibuster and doing more critical Senate work by budget reconciliation, which can be done with just Democratic votes, is contributing to a Senate backlog. Manchin continues to insist that there has to be 10 Republican votes to pass anything, while this is actually a thing: "Perhaps Democrats' best chance of making a law is over a bill aimed at combating the rise of hate crimes against Asian Americans, but even that is facing resistance from some Senate Republicans who are trying to block the measure ahead of a key procedural vote expected Wednesday." That's Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, who is married to a Chinese-American person: Elaine Chao. Nonetheless, President Joe Biden is continuing his quest to get Republicans on board with his infrastructure plan. He's meeting Monday with...
    During a press conference on Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said he agrees with Joe Biden’s plan to grant transgender children access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms according to their gender identity. Schumer was asked, “Joe Biden said that on his first day of office, he will give transgender students access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity in all federally-funded schools. Do you think he has the ability to do this, and do you agree with this decision?” Schumer responded, “I agree with the decision, and I know he’ll check things out thoroughly, legally.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

    Katy Perry at the Gracie Awards in September 2020. Getty Images/Getty Images for Women in Media Foundation Katy Perry is getting called out on Twitter after encouraging followers to call their families on the other side of the political spectrum following the election results.  "The first thing I did when the presidency was called is text and call my family members who do not agree and tell them I love them and am here for them," the singer wrote, along with the hashtag, "#familyfirst." "Call your family today," Perry added.  Twitter users subsequently accused Perry of ignoring the polarizing nature of the US presidential election between President-elect Joe Biden and President Donald Trump.
