    "I just ask everybody on the other side to cut it out. We’ve got hundreds of thousands of people suffering tremendously," Nye lamented. "Now, come on, let’s get to work. This is the United States! Come on. Let’s be world leaders, for crying out loud. Back to you, Jim." "Yeah, no," Acosta replied. "We just need to come together as a country. And it’s in moments like this when a very deeply divided nation can come together, particularly when it comes to helping an area like southwest Florida get back on its feet, which is what they’re desperately trying to do right now ... obviously, climate change is making these hurricanes more ferocious, more deadly, more costly," he added. www.youtube.com

    The final results from Israel's fourth election in two years show a nation deeply divided over whether Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should remain in office. Netanyahu and his right-wing allies fell short of winning a parliamentary majority, according to a final vote count released on Thursday. The Prime Minister and his allies captured 52 seats, compared to 57 held by his opponents, with neither alliances winning enough to form a government.    The final results from Israel's fourth election in two years show a nation deeply divided over whether Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (pictured on Wednesday) should remain in office Israelis vote for party lists rather than candidates, and seats in the 120-member Knesset are assigned based on the percentage of the vote.  No single Israeli party has ever won a 61-seat majority, so an aspiring prime minister must assemble a ruling coalition. That often means courting fringe parties or even those on the other side of the political spectrum, offering ministries, official positions, budgets or other favors in return for their support.  The negotiations usually take several weeks.

    Lady Gaga arrives to perform the National Anthem as President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris watch during the 59th Presidential Inauguration Wednesday. Night Owls is a themed open thread appearing at Daily Kos seven days a week.   At Mother Jones, David Corn writes—Joe Biden’s Inaugural Address Was a Plea for “Unity.” But Healing the Nation’s “Soul” Won’t Be Easy. Can he both implement his policies and unify a bitterly divided country? [...] Addressing the nation as president, Biden recognized that the fight for unity is largely a fight for truth. “What are the common objects we as Americans love, that define us as Americans?” he asked. “I think we know: opportunity, security, liberty, dignity, respect, honor, and yes, the truth.” He continued: “Recent weeks and months have taught us a painful lesson. There is truth and there are lies. Lies told for power and for profit. And each of us has a duty and a responsibility as citizens, as Americans, and especially as leaders. Leaders who are pledged to honor our Constitution to protect our nation. To defend...
    WASHINGTON (CBS/AP) — Joe Biden became the 46th president of the United States on Wednesday, taking the helm of a deeply divided nation and inheriting a confluence of crises arguably greater than any faced by his predecessors. In a time of national tumult and uncertainty, there were comforting signs of tradition for the hallowed American democratic rite now underway at a U.S. Capitol battered by an insurrectionist siege just two weeks ago. On a chilly Washington day dotted with snow flurries, a bipartisan trio of ex-presidents along with the elite of nation’s government gathered, ensuring the quadrennial ceremony persevered, even though it was encircled by security forces evocative of a war zone and devoid of crowds because of the coronavirus pandemic. Stay home, Americans were exhorted, to prevent further spread of a surging virus that has claimed more than 400,000 lives in the United States. Biden will look out over a capital city dotted with empty storefronts that attest to the pandemic’s deep economic toll and where summer protests laid bare the nation’s renewed reckoning on racial injustice. And he will not be applauded by his...
