    The United States has gambled big in its latest across-the-board sanctions on Chinese companies in the semiconductor industry, believing it can kneecap China and retain its global dominance. From the slogans of globalization and “free trade” of the neoliberal 1990s, Washington has reverted to good old technology denial regimes that the U.S. and its allies followed during the Cold War. While it might work in the short run in slowing down the Chinese advances, the cost to the U.S. semiconductor industry of losing China—its biggest market—will have significant consequences in the long run. In the process, the semiconductor industries of Taiwan and South Korea and equipment manufacturers in Japan and the European Union are likely to become collateral damage. It reminds us again of what former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger once said: “It may be dangerous to be America’s enemy, but to be America’s friend is fatal.” This article was produced in partnership by Newsclick and Globetrotter. The purpose of the U.S. sanctions, the second generation of sanctions after the earlier one in August 2021, is to restrict...
    SNAP and Medicaid Covid benefits will expire in 37 states, one territory and the DC area on April 15. This is due to the public health emergency declaration ending on April 16 unless the Biden administration decides to extend it. 1SNAP and Medicaid benefits would change after the public health emergency declaration expiresCredit: Getty The extra money, known as an emergency allotment (EA,) has helped people who experienced financial setbacks due to the pandemic. SNAP recipients have received emergency supplemental income to assist with job loss, rising rent and inflation after the U.S. Department of Agriculture granted waivers to certain states and territories, Yahoo News reported. However, this supplemental income was contingent on a state issuing an emergency or disaster declaration. So far, most states have been extending the emergency declaration alongside the Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra who extended the public health emergency (PHE) last on January 16 of this year.

    President Joe Biden previewed a future “declaration” to address the migrant crisis at the southern border of the United States during a meeting at the White House with the president of Colombia. “It needs to dramatically expand access to resettlement and other legal pathways to migration,” he said. Biden spoke about his migration expansion plan during a visit with Colombian President Iván Duque Márquez, telling reporters he wanted to sign a declaration at the “Summit of the Americas” in June in Los Angeles. “That’s the best way in my view for us to live up to our collective values, to welcome immigrants and refugees, keep migrants safe and secure [in] all our countries,” he said. It is unclear how significant the upcoming declaration will be, or whether it will have any legal ramifications, but it signals Biden’s latest thinking on his path forward on handling the border crisis. Biden announced the United States would recognize Colombia as a “major non-NATO ally” and thanked them for “hosting the lions’ share” of the refugees in their region. But he said the United...
    Glasgow, Scotland (CNN)The US and China announced an agreement Wednesday to ramp up their climate ambitions, just days before the end of the COP26 summit in Glasgow. "There is more agreement between the US and China than divergence, making it an area of huge potential for cooperation," China climate envoy Xie Zhenhua said at a news conference. "The release of this joint statement shows again that cooperation is the only choice for both China and the United States. By working together our two countries can achieve many important things that are beneficial not only to our two countries but the world as a whole." US vs. China: How the worlds two biggest emitters stack up on climateXie did not commit China to the Global Methane Pledge, which has been spearheaded by the US and EU and obliges signatories to slash methane emissions by around a third. Nor did he commit the country to any other major international agreements, saying China wanted "differentiated" responsibilities. However, Xie did say China intends to develop its own national plan for methane. "In terms of...
    HARRISBURG (KDKA) – Gov. Tom Wolf has signed the 15th renewal of the state’s opioid disaster declaration. While the opioid disaster declaration has been renewed every 90 days since Jan. 2018, a constitutional amendment approved by voters last May now limits declarations to just 21 days and then requires legislative approval to continue. But the legislature is now on its 10-week summer break until late September, and Wolf has asked state legislative leaders to call their colleagues back from summer recess in order to extend his emergency order on the opioid crisis. “As we see a spike in overdoses throughout the commonwealth, there has never been a more important time to concentrate our efforts in helping individuals with substance use disorder, especially opioid use disorder,” said Gov. Wolf in a statement Wednesday. “This ongoing public health crisis has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. It takes coordination from staff and resources to support and sustain our response across Pennsylvania.” In a letter to House Speaker Bryan Cutler and Senate President Jake Corman, Wolf said legislators need to return to Harrisburg...
    Leaders of populist and conservative parties across Europe have signed a joint declaration on the future of the European Union, criticising overreach from the EU and calling for more national sovereignty. Political party leaders from conservative and populist parties in 16 countries signed the declaration, which calls for major reforms to the European Union, stating: “instead of protecting Europe and its heritage, it is itself becoming a source of problems and anxiety.” The letter is signed by major political leaders including Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, Polish Law and Justice Party leader Jarosław Kaczyński, Italian senator and League leader Matteo Salvini, Brothers of Italy leader Giorgia Meloni, and VOX leader Santiago Abascal, among others, La Vanguardia reports. “The cooperation of European nations should be based on tradition, respect for the culture and history of European states, respect for  Europe’s Judeo-Christian heritage and the common values that unite our nations, and not on their destruction,” the declaration states. “The use of political structures and the law to create a European superstate and new social structures is a manifestation of the dangerous and...
    COLUMBUS, OHIO - Congress and President Joe Biden acted with unusual swiftness this week in approving Juneteenth as a national holiday, a move that sent many states scrambling to clarify their policies on the observance with less than a business day's notice. Nearly all states recognize Juneteenth in some fashion, at least on paper. But most have been slow to move beyond proclamations issued by governors or resolutions passed by lawmakers. At least seven states have designated it in law as an official paid state holiday — Illinois, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Virginia and Washington. This year alone, legislation to formally recognize Juneteenth died in Florida and South Dakota and is stalled in Ohio, all states controlled by Republicans. In Maryland, where Democrats control the legislature, a Juneteenth bill passed one chamber but died in the other. The effort recalls the drawn-out battles over recognizing Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the last time the federal government designated a new holiday. That legislation, finally passed in 1983, scheduled the holiday to begin three years later. It set off bitter...
    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and states along the southern border face an economic hurdle as President Biden stays mum on when he will reopen the U.S.-Mexico border. The Biden administration's silence on reopening the border, which has been closed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, comes amid recent news that Biden did not approve additional funding for DHS in the budget for the upcoming fiscal year  DHS depends on the revenue from legal southern border crossings for funding, and communities along the border also make critical cash off people crossing over the border into the U.S. ABBOTT ISSUES DISASTER DECLARATION OVER TEXAS BORDER CRISIS The Baker Institute for Public Policy at Rice University in Houston, Texas, estimates Texas border counties will lose $4.9 billion in total GDP from Mexican tourists and shoppers being unable to cross the border, equating to 6.1% of total GDP. Arizona is missing out on a hefty chunk of change, too. The Arizona-Mexico Commission estimated in 2019 that "visitors from Mexico contribute more than $7 million a day to Arizona’s economy by shopping in stores, eating...
    The cyberattack on the largest pipeline in the United States resulted in the federal government issuing a state of emergency for 17 states and the District of Columbia.  The emergency declaration covers Alabama, Arkansas, D.C., Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia, Axios reported. As Breitbart News reported, the criminal hacking group led to the shutdown of the largest pipeline in the United States: The Colonial pipeline, which snakes 5,500 miles along the eastern U.S., transports 2.5 million barrels of gasoline a day, and provides 45 percent of the region’s fuel consumption, was shut down on Friday in response to the hacking. Vice reported on the hackers’ odd statement posted on the “dark web”: “We are apolitical, we do not participate in geopolitics, do not need to tie us with a defined government and look for other our motives,” the statement from the DarkSide ransomware group reads. The statement did not explicitly point to the Colonial Pipeline incident, but it was titled “About the latest news.” Various outlets have...
    The Department of Transportation announced a regional emergency declaration after a gas pipeline was hit with a cyberattack over the weekend. The department's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration issued the distress call in a Sunday statement, just two days after they learned it was the victim of a ransomware attack. The company took part of their systems offline, specifically the Colonial Pipeline, at the time they announced they had been the subject to a cyberattack. "USDOT’s top priority is safety, and while current circumstances dictate providing industry flexibility, FMCSA will work closely with its state and industry partners to monitor driver work hours and conditions for the duration of the exemption," the Department of Transportation said in a statement. ENVIRONMENTALISTS SAY BIDEN'S CLIMATE FINANCE PLAN LEAVES THE DOOR OPEN FOR FOSSIL FUELS Drivers and motor carriers who are providing assistance to states during the unexpected disruption are mainly exempt from Parts 390 through 399 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations, per the emergency declaration. However, this only is in effect when drivers are transporting goods such as gasoline, diesel,...
    Reuters February 27, 2021 0 Comments U.S. President Joe Biden met with volunteers at a food bank, toured a health center and visited an emergency operations facility on Friday to assess recovery efforts from a severe Texas winter storm while an aide blamed state government for being unprepared. Biden and his wife Jill Biden landed in Houston where he met Republican Governor Greg Abbott and Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner to discuss the recovery from last week’s storm, which caused serious damage to homes and businesses, left millions without power or clean water for days, and killed at least two dozen. At the Houston Food Bank, the largest in the country serving more than 1.1 million people, Biden saw rows of packaged food, from pasta to applesauce, stacked in a large warehouse and watched conveyors move slowly as volunteers pulled food out of boxes and put them in containers for delivery. He visited an emergency operations center in Harris County, where roughly 50 percent of the county’s 4.9 million residents were without power. “As my mother would say to you,...

    By Kate Sullivan and Allie Malloy | CNN President Joe Biden said on Friday that he plans to travel to Texas but does not want a presidential trip to put any additional strain on a state grappling with an extreme weather crisis. “The answer is yes,” Biden said when asked if he would travel to Texas after he addressed the Munich Security Conference. “If, in fact, it’s concluded that I can do it without creating a burden for the folks on the ground while they are dealing with this crisis, I plan on going,” Biden said. He said that decision would probably be made at the beginning of next week. The announcement comes after a devastating week of freezing temperatures and winter storms in Texas that led to widespread power outages. The state has begun restoring power, but nearly half of the state’s population remains under boil-water advisories as water scarcity continues. Biden said he had spoken with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, on Thursday night. The President said he would ask acting-Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator Bob Fenton...
    The Biden administration has sent 60 generators, thousands of blanks and other supplies to Texas to help address mass power outages amid a rare bout of extreme winter weather. Homeland security adviser and deputy national security adviser Liz Sherwood-Randall told reporters Thursday afternoon that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has supplied 60 generators to support critical sites like hospitals and water facilities, 729,000 liters of water, more than 10,000 wool blankets, 50,000 cotton blankets and 225,000 meals. Officials are also preparing for the possibility of further requests by Texas and getting ready to supply diesel fuel to power facilities, she said.

    RALEIGH, N.C (AP) — The Small Business Administration has approved North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper’s request for a disaster declaration for five counties affected by heavy rains from the remnants of Tropical Storm Eta. The declaration, signed by Cooper on Tuesday, affects Alexander, Caldwell, Catawba, Iredell and Wilkes counties. Approval means SBA low-interest disaster loans are available to people and businesses recovering from the November storm. Heavy rains spawned by Eta caused widespread flooding across North Carolina on Nov. 12, requiring evacuations, water rescues, and leading to 12 deaths. Six of the deaths occurred when flood waters swamped an Alexander County campground. The storm also damaged and washed out roads and caused power outages. “The tragic consequences of this storm left loved ones grieving, families without homes, and damaged communities,” Cooper said in a statement. “While the declaration can’t bring back those lives, it is a way to help those communities begin to recover and move forward.” Copyright 2020 The Associated Press.

    CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Gov. Chris Sununu on Friday extended New Hampshire's start of emergency declaration another three weeks, citing an increase in coronavirus cases across the state and in the region. Sununu, a Republican, initially declared a state of emergency on March 13 and has continued to extend it every 21 days. A further extension is needed to combat a “significant increase” in COVID-19 infections in New Hampshire in recent weeks, he wrote. Among other measures, the order continues a statewide mask mandate for everyone over age 5 when they cannot stay 6 feet away from people outside their household. Sununu's order also cites concerns with climbing cases in neighboring Massachusetts. The New Hampshire counties with the highest numbers of infections are those that border Massachusetts, he wrote. A separate order signed Friday establishes new rules to collect data on COVID-19 vaccinations once doses become available. The order requires all health care providers to enter vaccinations into a state database in order to track the state's planned rollout of the vaccine. The 7-day rolling average of daily new cases...
    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy plans to issue a new disaster emergency declaration related to the pandemic next week, his office said Thursday. Dunleavy spokesperson Jeff Turner said further details are expected to be released by Monday, the day before the existing order expires. The Legislature earlier this year approved a declaration that ended Nov. 15. Dunleavy followed it up with a new, 30-day order, despite concerns raised by lawmakers about its legal underpinnings and requests by legislative leaders that he call a special session to address the issue. The Legislature's top legal adviser, Megan Wallace, in a September memo, said there was no statutory provision authorizing the governor to issue a second declaration for the same disaster. Dunleavy's office has said the declaration he issued in March and that lawmakers extended until Nov. 15 was in response to the threat of an outbreak of COVID-19. Dunleavy said the subsequent declaration was “based upon the determination of moving from the threat of a pandemic to an actual pandemic." His office has said the declaration allows for such...
    The European Union is seeking ways to reset trans-Atlantic ties between the bloc and the United States under the assumption that globalist-minded former vice president Joe Biden ascends to the White House. Eurocrats met in Brussels on Monday to discuss strategies for working with a possible Biden presidency, on issues such as ‘Build Back Better’ green agenda issues and the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. “With Joe Biden´s election as the new American president, there are a lot of major opportunities that we as Europe want to take,” said German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas. The Chair of the meeting, EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said per the Associated Press that the goal of the gathering was to establish “a new, refreshed start of our engagement with the U.S.” In a document released last week, entitled A New EU-U.S. Agenda for Global Change, the EU Commission said that it would seek to “reinforce and reform the World Health Organization” with Biden. Earlier this year, President Trump removed the United States from the UN body over concerns that the W.H.O. was compromised by its close ties with...
    President Trump demanded that apparent election winner Joe Biden not claim victory "wrongfully." Results of the election remain unclear, with states such as North Carolina, Arizona, and Pennsylvania still counting votes. "Joe Biden should not wrongfully claim the office of the President. I could make that claim also. Legal proceedings are just now beginning!" Trump said. He added: "I had such a big lead in all of these states late into election night, only to see the leads miraculously disappear as the days went by. Perhaps these leads will return as our legal proceedings move forward!" Joe Biden should not wrongfully claim the office of the President. I could make that claim also.

    'Count the votes. Respect the results,' said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib, who all won resounding reelection victories in their congressional districts, had an important message for Donald Trump on Tuesday night: The election's not over till it's over. The four House members, collectively known as the "Squad," took to Twitter to call Trump to task for prematurely declaring victory. In his public remarks in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, Trump claimed to have won the states of Georgia and North Carolina despite results remaining unclear in those states.
    With the 2020 presidential election still too close to call, outspoken, left-leaning celebrities still took to social media Tuesday night and Wednesday morning to assert their belief that Joe Biden will win it all.  As the entire country awaits voter counts in key swing states that will decide who gets the necessary majority of the Electoral College, supporters of both Biden and President Donald Trump are anxiously biding their time before there’s any clarity on how the race will break.  Although Trump declared victory in the early morning Wednesday, Hollywood wasn’t buying the spin.

    Fox’s Chris Wallace blasted President Donald Trump’s false declaration of an election victory, calling the move during a Wednesday morning address “extremely inflammatory.” On Wednesday morning, Trump told a room of supporters, “We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election.” He then said that “we’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court” because “we want all voting to stop.” “This is an extremely flammable situation and the President just threw a match into it,” Wallace said. “He hasn’t won these states. Nobody is saying he won the states. The states haven’t said he’s won.” Trump also falsely claimed in his address that he’s won a group of states — Georgia, North Carolina, Wisconsin, among others — that no outlet or state has called in his favor as of yet before threatening to go to the Supreme Court. “I don’t know whether he literally means it this but he said that we are going to the Supreme Court because we want all the voting to stop,” Wallace continued. “The voting to stop yes, but the...
    The U.S. and 32 other nations signed a declaration last week that made clear that "there is no international right to abortion" and highlighted the foundational importance of the family unit to society. The document, called the "Geneva Consensus Declaration On Promoting Women's Health and Strengthening the Family" and co-sponsored by the U.S., Brazil, Egypt, Hungary, Indonesia, and Uganda, was signed at a virtual event. What does the declaration say? The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued a statement touting the document as an effort to achieve four main pillars: better health for women; the preservation of human life; strengthening of family as the foundational unit of society; and protecting every nation's national sovereignty in global politics. Cultural conservatives in the U.S. took particular note that the document took a stance that appears contrary to the increasingly liberal international community's stance on the right to life and the importance of the family unit. The declaration stated a reaffirmation of "the inherent 'dignity and worth of the human person,'...

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The 193 members of the United Nations reached agreement on a declaration to commemorate this year’s 75th anniversary of the world organization, recalling the U.N.’s successes and failure and vowing to build a post-pandemic world that is more equal, works together, and protects the planet. General Assembly President Tijjani Muhammad-Bande announced the agreement Tuesday in a letter to U.N. members. He said the declaration will be adopted by world leaders at the official anniversary commemoration on Sept. 21, which will be virtual because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Thomas Jefferson fell in love with Maria Cosway, but she was not free. History remembers him as the author of the document of the Declaration of Independence of the United States, one of the founding fathers of the country and third president of the country. But Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) was a man of many talents. There are lesser known but no less important aspects of the life of this figure so key to American history. Among them, his aptitude to write … love letters. And there is one in particular, from 1786, that became famous: The Dialogue Between My Head and My Heart. Historians agree that Maria Cosway was a stunning woman. (Painting of Maria Cosway by Richard Cosway. 1789). “This letter encapsulates his feelings and shows the complexity within Jefferson himself,” John Kaminski, director of the Center for the Study of the American Constitution at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA, told BBC Mundo. But to whom was the letter addressed? “Love at first sight” Thomas Jefferson was born in Shadwell, Virginia, on April 13, 1743 to...
