    Liz Truss today vowed to make the 'special relationship' between the UK and the US 'even more special' amid claims of a freeze in transatlantic détente.  In an interview on CNN's State Of The Union programme, the Prime Minister was asked about concerns in US president Joe Biden's administration that she does not share the same belief in the special relationship as some of her predecessors in No 10. She and Mr Biden met in the margins of the UN General Assembly last week on issues including the political breakdown in Northern Ireland and the war in Ukraine. 'I do think our relationship is special and it's increasingly important at a time when we're facing threats from Russia, increased assertiveness from China,' Ms Truss told the US broadcaster. 'I'm determined that we make the special relationship even more special over the coming years.' She said she is a 'huge fan' of the US, and added: 'We are stepping up as an alliance to take on what is an absolutely appalling war created by (Russian president Vladimir) Putin'. She added that the West...
    Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz on Saturday said that he’s never seen a president give as “unhealthy’ a speech as the one President Joe Biden gave in Pennsylvania earlier this month, a remark that drew quite a reaction from the Texas Tribune Festival audience. Cruz was one of many politicians on the TribFest stage from Thursday through Saturday in Austin, and during his hour on stage drew laughs from the crowd several times. Just not always on purpose. Speaking with author and journalist David Drucker of the Washington Examiner, Cruz remarked at one point that conservatives are “wary” about being “targeted” by the government for their views under the Biden administration. He brought up the president’s anti-MAGA speech in Pennsylvania as an example of what fosters those concerns. “Listen, we saw Joe Biden stand up in Pennsylvania and give a speech – bathed in red light like Emperor Palpatine, that was bizarre — where he called half the country fascist, or I guess semi-fascist was the term he uses,” said Cruz, referencing the much-criticized motif of the speech. “That’s not...
    Sir Elton John became emotional on Friday evening as he was presented with a National Humanities Medal at the White House in Washington.  The musician, 75, put on a show-stopping performance after being welcomed to the stage by President Joe Biden and first lady Jill.  At the end of the show, Biden surprised Elton with the Medal for his songbook and his long legacy of advocacy, which left Elton tearing up.  Happy tears: Sir Elton John became emotional on Friday evening as he was presented with a National Humanities Medal at the White House in Washington The Rocketman played on an elaborate stage set up specifically for him and kicked off the show with Your Song, his first big international hit. Elton cut a dapper figure in a black suit, teamed with a white shirt and his trademark flashy red glasses.   RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next 'The scars did not heal': Ulrika Jonsson says there are 'no...

    The White House is promoting a number of initiatives for National Hispanic Heritage Month and appears to be avoiding a controversial term in the process. President Joe Biden spoke earlier this week at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute awards gala, while Vice President Kamala Harris spoke with the institute's chairwoman, Rep. Nanette Diaz Barragan (D-CA). But the Biden administration has stuck to the terms "Hispanic," "Latino," and Latina" to describe the efforts, avoiding the gender-neutral "Latinx." 'TRIPLE THREAT': THREE CONSERVATIVE TEXAS LATINAS AIM TO CONVERT BORDER DEMOCRATS "Today marks the first day of Hispanic Heritage Month, when we honor the rich history and values the Hispanic community contributes to our nation," White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Sept. 15. "We reaffirm that diversity is one of our country's greatest strengths. The Hispanic community enriches our neighborhoods, small businesses, workshop, media, and arts. We uplift the voices and accomplishments of the Hispanic community not only during this month but throughout the year." The White House has seen slipping support among Hispanic voters since Biden took...
    Marios Lolos/Xinhua via ZUMA Press This story was originally published by the Guardian and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. The Russian tanks and armored vehicles had barely begun to roll into Ukraine before the fossil fuel industry in the US had swung into action. A letter was swiftly dispatched to the White House, urging an immediate escalation in gas production and exports to Europe ahead of an anticipated energy crunch. The letter, dated February 25, just one day after Vladimir Putin’s forces launched their assault on Ukraine, noted the “dangerous juncture” of the moment before segueing into a list of demands: more drilling on US public lands; the swift approval of proposed gas export terminals; and pressure on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, an independent agency, to greenlight pending gas pipelines. By the winter of 2022, there should be “virtual transatlantic gas pipelines” flowing from the US to Europe, the authors envisioned. “Just weeks after those demands were laid out, President Biden was turning industry wishes into policy.” Six months on from the letter, Russia’s invasion has stalled and in places retreated,...
    Former President Donald Trump has revealed he asked FOX News host Sean Hannity go easier on his successor. The revelation came as Trump was concluding an exclusive two-part sit-down interview with Hannity at his Mar-a-Lago resort, in a segment that aired on Thursday. The FOX News host thanked the former president for his time, to which Trump asked whether he thought Joe Biden would provide him with that much time for an interview. 'Want my honest answer?' Hannity replied. 'I don't think he knows that today's Wednesday is my honest answer.' 'I hope he does, for the sake of this country, I hope he does,' Trump said. At that point, Hannity said he was 'very gracious,' adding: 'I should tell a story about how one time you requested I go easier on him. 'You did say that to me, you thought I was being too flippant.' Trump then recounted how he 'thought it was too tough, I thought you were very tough,' even as Hannity doubled down on his coverage of the president saying: 'I was telling the truth.' Former President Donald...
    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...
    The phrase has long stood for the enduring bond between the UK and US. But Liz Truss’s first meeting with Joe Biden in Washington suggested the term ‘special relationship’ may be phased out as she launched her new foreign policy ethos.  The President did not utter the words, first used by Winston Churchill, during bilateral talks, but instead told her: ‘You’re our closest ally in the world.’ Last night the White House denied the term had been ‘retired’ but offered to suspend its use, with an official saying: ‘We’ll shut it down until we can figure out what’s going on.’  However, the exchange was in sharp contrast to when Miss Truss entered No 10 earlier this month. At the time, Mr Biden said he looked forward to ‘deepening the special relationship’ between the two nations.
    Joe Biden, 79, faced yet another public embarrassment when he appeared to get lost when walking off stage following his remarks at the Global Fund Conference. As applause ensued, the U.S. president began walking off the stage before abruptly stopping in his tracks and looking around with an appearance of confusion on his face. He then seemed to ask people on the ground how to get off stage and did a few stuttering steps.  'Joe Biden is completely lost on stage. Scary and sad,' Steve Guest, a communications adviser for Senator Ted Cruz, tweeted of the scene.  A man came to the microphone at the event to say: 'Uh, Mr. President, thank you,' as he wandered around the stage.  This caused further confusion on the part of the president who slowly inched his way off stage, stopping every few steps to look back at the speaker thanking him for his leadership and remarks. President Joe Biden, 79, appeared lost in an embarrassing moment where he began walking off stage following his remarks at the Global Fund Conference in New York before...
    by Debra Heine   Republicans on the House Oversight and Reform Committee have obtained bombshell documents proving that Joe Biden was deeply involved in the family business of selling American natural gas to the Chinese–while he was planning to run for President. According to multiple whistleblowers, the Biden family made promises to those who worked with them in 2017 and onward that they would “reap the rewards in a future Biden administration.” These explosive revelations “pose national security concerns,” Oversight Republicans proclaimed Tuesday night. The Biden clan enriched itself by selling the natural resources to a Chinese firm closely affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)—just a few years before the cost of gas in the United States hit record highs, the Oversight Republicans stated. In a letter to United States Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), the ranking Republican on the Oversight Committee, alleged that according to whistleblowers, Joe Biden was heavily involved in this treachery. “This comes to light at a time when the cost of natural gas is at a 14-year high and Americans struggle to...
    The new 'special relationship' had a tricky start last night as Joe Biden sent a 'candid' message about his 'personal' feelings on the Northern Ireland Brexit row. The PM and US president sat down for their first talks at the UN general assembly in New York. Aides said the discussions went on for 75 minutes rather than the hour scheduled, and there was a united front on Ukraine and the response to Russia. However, the leaders appear to have had an awkward exchange over Northern Ireland, with US officials describing the conversation as 'candid' - usually code that there was not agreement.  Mr Biden is said to have stressed the 'personal importance' he sets on resolving the spat over the province and protecting the Good Friday Agreement. For her part, Ms Truss filled in the US president on her talks with EU commission president Ursula von der Leyen - and has signalled she wants to settle the issues within six months.  The premier is targeting getting the Northern Ireland Executive back up and running in time for the 25th anniversary...

    Former President Donald Trump appeared in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity on Wednesday night and slammed President Joe Biden for 'dismantling' his achievements in the White House.  Trump listed his accomplishments while he was President and said he was 'so proud' of what his administration did, including tax and regulation cuts, energy independence and the border wall.  Former President Donald Trump appeared on Fox News in an interview with Sean Hannity to discuss New York AG Letitia James and the current Biden administration He went on to say 'we did things nobody ever thought possible' and then tore into Biden and his current administration when they 'came along and just dismantled that.' He said Biden's reluctance to deal with the border crisis has allowed an influx of drugs into the country, and said 'we were doing great, and now you've got drugs pouring into the country at a level that nobody has seen. Trump claimed 'we had drugs down 19% from what they were the previous year' and also said the border crisis has allowed 'millions' of people...
    BRITAIN has set a six-month deadline to solve the Northern Ireland protocol — ahead of a possible state visit from Joe Biden next year.

    For example, the legal justification for canceling $10,000 of student loan debt per borrower is the alleged national emergency stemming from the pandemic. Meanwhile, Biden officials have argued that migrants should no longer be expelled from the U.S. under Title 42 because the pandemic is a relic of the past.What does the WH say?Administration officials were called in for clean-up duty this week after Biden's "60 Minutes" interview. An official, for instance, told CNN the official policy of the U.S. government has not changed, and that a declaration of national emergency over the pandemic will be extended in October. On Wednesday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre muddied the waters further with confusing remarks when asked about Biden's declaration. "Just to step back for a second," she said. "When he made those comments, he was walking through the Detroit car show, the halls of the Detroit car show, and he was looking around. We have to remember the last time that they had held that event was 3 years ago. "We are in a different time. He’s been very consistent...
    President Biden’s student loan relief plan would cancel up to $20,000 in federal student loans for borrowers. Individuals making less than $125,000 per year, and married couples making less than $250,000 can have up to $10,000 in relief. If the individual received a Pell Grant, they can have an additional $10,000 in relief. Biden’s plan has been met, predictably, with support and opposition. Supporters are in agreement with the primary narrative used by the administration – many borrowers are struggling with either debt or default, and forgiveness would provide relief. They point out the hypocrisy of people who are opposing forgiveness but nonetheless received Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan forgiveness. READ MORE: Polls: Joe Biden jumps while Donald Trump slumps In a surprising and funny move, the White House communications office tweeted the loan amounts several detractors had forgiven.

    White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Wednesday that President Joe Biden didn't mean the pandemic is 'over' when he said just that during the 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday.  'So just to step back for a second, what we saw during that interview, 60 Minutes interview, when he made those comments, he was walking through the Detroit car show, the halls of the Detroit car show, and he was looking around,' she explained on Morning Joe. 'We have to remember the last time that they had held that event was three years ago.'  Jean-Pierre also pointed to the United Nations General Assembly, which Biden will address later this morning, noting that gathering hadn't been fully an in-person event in three years.  White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Wednesday that President Joe Biden didn't mean the pandemic is 'over' when he said just that during the 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday President Joe Biden was 'walking through the Detroit car show,' when he made the COVID comments, Jean-Pierre said, pointing out that this was the first time...
    PRESIDENT Joe Biden has blasted Putin for "pumping out lies" after Russia "sought conflict" with the "brutal needless" Ukraine war. It comes just hours after Putin threatened to nuke the West in a chilling address. 1Biden hit out at Putin while speaking at the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday The deranged Russian leader said he would use "all the means at our disposal" against the West, which he falsely accused of committing "nuclear blackmail". Now, President Biden has called out Putin at a United Nations General Assembly. "In the last year our world has experienced great upheaval, growing crisis and food insecurity, record heat, floods and droughts COVID-19 inflation and a brutal needless war. "War chosen by one man to be very blunt, to speak plainly. A permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, invaded his neighbor, attempted to erase the sovereign state from the map. Russia has shamelessly violated the core tenants of the United Nations Charter." He went on to point out flaws in Putin's speech, saying: "Putin claims he had to act because Russia was threatened....
    When President Joe Biden declared the coronavirus pandemic “over,” he was observing a shift in preparedness from the early days of the pandemic, the White House said, still cleaning up after Biden's Sunday interview. Biden’s press secretary said Wednesday that the president was speaking about public sentiment, not the state of emergency, during a headline-grabbing 60 Minutes interview that appeared to throw into disarray his administration's agenda. “Just to step back for a second, when he made those comments, he was walking through the Detroit car show, the halls of the Detroit car show, he was looking around.

    NEW YORK — Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi questioned the current world order before the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly, singling out former President Donald Trump for killing Iranian Revolutionary Guard Quds Force leader Gen. Qassem Soleimani in a 2020 drone strike. Raisi praised Soleimani, who directed Iran's extraterritorial and clandestine military operations until his death, as "a freedom-seeking man who became a martyr" when Trump approved the "savage," "illegal," and "immoral" attack while Soleimani was in Iraq. BIDEN TO RALLY UN AROUND FOUNDING PRINCIPLES AMID UKRAINE WAR "The fate of other countries has shown America has pursued her own interests at the expense of other countries," Raisi said Wednesday through a translator, later holding up a photo of Soleimani and pledging to pursue "a fair tribunal to seek justice." Raisi, whose Holocaust denial and scrutiny of Israel caused Israeli U.N. Ambassador Gilad Erdan to walk out of the hall, criticized Trump for "trampling" on the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action nuclear deal. Raisi, ignoring his country's own human rights problems, also described sanctions as...
    Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) slammed President Joe Biden's border policies Tuesday, claiming they have undermined the principles of democracy. "Democracy depends on the mutual acceptance of rules, norms, and institutions," Kennedy told host Harris Faulkner on The Faulkner Focus. "President Biden's southern border policy has undermined that principle." BIDEN ADMINISTRATION'S OWN MIGRANT FLIGHTS RECEIVE RENEWED SCRUTINY "He has completely opened the southern border, and he has looked the American people in the eye, and he has lied and said the border's closed," he continued. Kennedy further added that the people "don't like being treated like a moron." "They don't like the president lying to them, and when they call the president out, they don't like the president calling them Nazis and racists," he explained. According to the senator, people "don't lock their front door at night because they hate everybody on the outside," instead, "they lock their front door at night because they love people on the inside, and they want to know who's coming in and out of their house, and...
    Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski asked White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre if President Joe Biden will call out Governor Ron DeSantis “more pointedly” over his migrant stunt, given Biden’s “empathy to human beings.” DeSantis has been grabbing headlines by sending migrants to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts (for which he is being sued) and trolling other localities like Delaware with the prospect they might be his next stunt locale. Jean-Pierre gave an extensive round-robin interview on Wednesday morning’s edition of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, and Brzezinski left little doubt how she feels about  DeSantis and his actions when she teed up a question for KJP: MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Karine, I want to ask you about this political stunt by the Republican governors shipping the migrants to places like Martha’s Vineyard and other places around the country so that they miss their asylum hearings and other things. And also tricking localities into thinking migrants like these were coming their way, like Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware, or New Jersey in preparation for the president’s speech, and then finding out they’re not coming. This seems like something...
    President Joe Biden will announce that the United States will provide $2.9 billion in humanitarian funding with the aim of alleviating a global food crisis. Biden is set to elaborate on the various investments during his Wednesday morning address before the United Nations General Assembly. The president and top administration officials have consistently pointed to the war in Ukraine, climate change, and complications sparked by the coronavirus pandemic as the major stressors on the global food supply. SULLIVAN: BIDEN TO ANNOUNCE 'ROBUST' NEW FOOD SECURITY COMMITMENTS AT UNGA The bulk of the U.S. commitments is happening at USAID, where $2 billion will be allocated to "help save lives in countries facing food security crises, including through food and nutrition assistance, healthcare, safe drinking water, protection for the most vulnerable, and other vital relief." Biden also plans to announce $140 million in new development funding for the U.S. government's Feed the Future program in sub-Saharan Africa, $220 million to set up eight "school feeding projects" in Africa and East Asia through the McGovern-Dole International Food for Education and Child Nutrition Program,...

    There's a sense of anxiety quietly growing among many rank-and-file Republican lawmakers and top Capitol Hill aides about how former President Donald Trump's legal troubles could sour GOP prospects in the midterm and 2024 general elections. The sentiment notably does not mesh with the public face put on by top party officials and campaigning candidates, who assert that the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago will drive Republican turnout and ostensibly push many independents to vote red in purple districts. TRUMP LAWYERS ADMIT HE COULD BE CHARGED IN LATEST RAID FILING "It's a base motivator, but as you travel and you talk to people about the things that we talk about in DC," one senior Republican campaign official told the Washington Examiner, "they're not the conversations that we hear people having in Michigan or Nevada." "Our base was really fired up about what happened, and I think that maybe in all the Congress, people understand the situation differently, but mostly out in the field and out in states, people ask, 'How could you do that to a former president?' And you still...

    Controversial Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) introduced articles of impeachment on Monday to remove President Joe Biden from office for “draining our reserves and selling our oil.” Greene released a short clip online Monday night explaining why she wants Biden removed from office. “I just introduced articles of impeachment on President Joe Biden. Joe Biden is selling our strategic petroleum reserves. This should never happen. He is draining our reserves and selling our oil, Americans’ oil to foreign countries,” Greene says in the clip. “And China is the top buyer. China is our enemy. They are not our friend. They’re buying American’s oil. The Strategic Petroleum Reserve is our emergency supply for if something goes wrong in this country,” she continues, adding: It’s now down to 434 million barrels of oil. That is nearly half of what it was when President Trump left office. This is an outrage. This is completely wrong. And no president of the United States should be doing this to the American people. It’s going to create a national emergency crisis. And that’s exactly what President...
    President Joe Biden on Wednesday will announce a series of "robust" humanitarian aid packages the United States will provide other countries aimed at shoring up food security amid complications from the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine. National security adviser Jake Sullivan briefed reporters Tuesday on the announcements, which will be unveiled during Biden's address before the United Nations General Assembly. WHITE HOUSE FINDS ITSELF IN BIDEN-TAIWAN CLEANUP MODE AS WORLD LEADERS GATHER IN NYC "We're going to make very robust financial commitments on humanitarian assistance, significantly greater than $100 million," Sullivan explained.

On top of the U.S. aid packages, Biden will use his speech to call for the "elimination of export bans and of hoarding so that there is a better supply of food to the world market and overall prices come down." Sullivan added that Biden plans to highlight...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) on Tuesday blasted “revenge politics” as Senate Republicans balk at an energy permitting deal Democratic leadership plans to attach to a crucial government funding bill Congress must pass by Oct. 1 to avert a government shutdown. LIZ CHENEY BLASTS PARTY FOR TREATING TRUMP ‘AS THOUGH HE WERE A KING’ Senate Republicans remain frustrated by the energy deal, which Manchin struck with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in exchange for his vote on the Inflation Reduction Act, a scaled-back version of Build Back Better, President Joe Biden’s sweeping social spending and green energy bill. Manchin sunk Build Back Better when he objected to its price tag and raised concerns over inflation, and many Republicans were surprised by his subsequent agreement on the Inflation Reduction Act. Manchin told reporters at a press conference Tuesday that the text of his permitting proposal will be available Wednesday, but it does not yet appear there are the votes needed to pass a continuing resolution including Manchin’s reforms in the upper chamber. The deal will likely...
    The View host Whoopi Goldberg dismissed criticisms of President Joe Biden's recent 60 Minutes interview Tuesday in which he admitted he is not certain about reelection and slammed the idea of entertaining other Democrats who are eager to take his place in 2024.

    Georgia Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Stacey Abrams said she would “welcome” support from President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on the campaign trail as she fights to unseat Republican Gov. Brian Kemp. Abrams’s willingness to appear alongside Biden and Harris, who both hold negative approval ratings, comes as her prospects in the race appear to dim. ‘NO IFS, ANDS, OR BUTS’ THAT NEWSOM WILL RUN FOR PRESIDENT IF BIDEN DOESN’T: REPORT “There is no reticence on my part,” Abrams told the 19th News. “I know people will try to spin up stories where they don’t exist. I welcome President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to come to Georgia because that’s one of the ways we show Georgia what the Democrats have delivered for our state.” The high-profile voting activist was a no-show when Biden and Harris visited Atlanta in January to campaign for voting rights. Polls show Abrams trailing Kemp, despite blockbuster fundraising. The Democrat ran against the governor in 2018, a race she still contests. But Abrams has lost ground with Democratic and centrist voters, according...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ plane he used to send 50 migrants to affluent Martha’s Vineyard is on the move again – heading for President Biden’s Rehoboth home in Delaware. DeSantis last week sparked a spectacular escalation in the ongoing immigration war between the Republican GOP’s in charge of the border states and Democrat officials in so-called ‘sanctuary cities’. It now appears that he is sending the Ultimate Air Shuttle to Georgetown, which will touch down at around 1.30pm. The plane had started its journey from Longview, in Texas, before heading to San Antonio, and then Crestview, in Florida.

    Whenever Joe Biden goes on the offensive, there are observations that he’s being combative, as if it were foreign to him, as if it were a new strategy he had only now begun to employ. But this combative Biden in fact makes regular appearances. He is summoned when needed or forced to emerge under pressure. He is the Hulk to Biden’s Bruce Banner. You may not like him when he’s angry. Biden presented himself as a candidate who could unify the country or at least believed that unity was worth pursuing, even as Democrats and many other Americans were angry at and exhausted by Donald Trump. Biden often drifts back into that idealism, seemingly longing for and lost in a long-gone politics in which bipartisanship was more common and an antidemocratic opposition party was unfathomable. But then reality resurfaces, and he is reminded that he is in a war, not just a disagreement. He is reminded — and must remind the country — that these are dire times. Unity Joe had to give way to Combat Joe almost from the...
    President Joe Biden‘s approval ratings are soaring, after a summer filled with legislative wins few predicted, and policy initiatives pundits declared would harm him but have helped the country, and the President’s poll numbers as a result. NBC News reports Donald Trump‘s approval among registered voters now sits at just 34%, and President Joe Biden at 45%. Usually, over time, former presidents’ approval ratings go up, but not Trump’s. With just 20% of those polled rating him very positive and another 14% merely positive (34% total) it’s Trump’s lowest over a year. President Biden’s approval is his best since last October, an 11-month high. “Democrats have pulled even with Republicans ahead of November’s midterm elections, fueled by six in 10 voters who disapprove of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade; President Joe Biden’s approval rating improving to its highest mark since October; and by Donald Trump’s favorability rating dropping to its lowest point in more than a year,” NBC News adds. Donald Trump, under at least four criminal investigations, isn’t an announced candidate yet. READ MORE: ‘Ignoring...
    The House is expected to take up as early as this week a bill that a pair of lawmakers on the Jan. 6 select committee said would prevent attempts to overturn future elections. DON BOLDUC WALKS BACK 2020 ELECTION CLAIMS AFTER CLINCHING GOP NOMINATION In the aftermath of the riot, lawmakers in both the House and Senate weighed ways to reform the Electoral Count Act, a 135-year-old election law then-President Donald Trump and his allies tried to use to remain in power even after President Joe Biden won the 2020 election. Trump and his allies sought to use the 1887 law governing the process of certifying Electoral College votes to overturn the 2020 election results, arguing that Vice President Mike Pence could unilaterally refuse to recognize the results from a handful of key states, swinging the outcome to Trump. Constitutional and legal scholars, and ultimately Pence himself, rejected that argument on Jan. 6, 2021, when a violent mob stormed the Capitol, delaying certification of the election by several hours. Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Zoe...
    President Joe Biden sat down for his first television interview in more than 200 days for 60 Minutes on Sunday and raised eyebrows with comments on his 2024 run, politics turning into 'personal attacks' after tearing into Trump and declaring the pandemic over - even though he still has federal mandates in place. During his lengthy sit-down the president weighed in on a range of topics from his record in dealing with 40-year-high inflation to whether the US would defend Taiwan from China - though his thoughts on the latter subject were quickly walked back by the White House. He cast doubt on the certainty peddled by senior aides that Biden intends to run for a second term as president, telling interviewer Scott Pelley that it was 'too early to make that kind of decision.' Biden did, however, take a shot at Donald Trump - his predecessor and a likely 2024 rival if both men decide to run. Politics have 'changed' vastly since the Democrat was first elected to the Senate in 1974, he said. 'What we do today, think about it, it's all...
    CNBC’s Joe Kernen pushed back on the “pretty picture” White House economic advisor Heather Boushey painted during a Monday appearance on the network. Appearing on Squawk Box, Boushey touted positive progress in the economy until Kernen jumped in with his own reality check. “The stock market obviously has all these things wrong,” Kernen said. “That’s a pretty picture that you’ve painted, but it seems like mortgage rates have doubled in the last year, gas prices are still up, probably 60 to 70 percent from where they were before the president took office, inflation’s running at 8.3 percent, 40 year highs —” “Gas prices have come down phenomenally, Joe,” Bouchey interjected. “You cannot deny that.” After some crosstalk, Kernen pointed out that gas prices were “two and change” when President Joe Biden entered office. Bouchey pointed out that gas price hikes can be blamed on a “geopolitical crisis” that “upended” oil markets. According to AAA, the average U.S. gas price sits at approximately $3.67, up from $3.19 a year ago. “If you’re going to blame everything on the pandemic for inflation,...
    (CNN)Joe Biden was asked a very simple question in an interview that aired Sunday: Had he decided whether to run again for president in 2024?The answer he gave was anything but straightforward."Look, my intention as I said to begin with is that I would run again," Biden told "60 Minutes." "But it's just an intention. But is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen."Which is an interesting way to answer that question!Especially when you consider the following:Read More1) Biden, currently 79, is the oldest person ever elected to a first presidential term.2) He repeatedly cast himself as a "bridge" candidate to a younger generation on the campaign trail in 2020.3) Speculation has swirled almost since the day he took the oath of office about whether he will run for reelection.Biden has to know that an answer like the one he gave on Sunday will only fuel the whispers that he may not be running again. Because there is a simple way to answer the question that CBS' Scott Pelley asked. And it goes like...
    President Joe Biden revealed to CBS' 60 Minutes on Sunday that he has not made a final determination on whether to seek a second term in 2024. "Sir are you committed to running again? Or are there certain conditions that have to be right?" asked correspondent Scott Pelley. "Look, if I were to say to you, 'I'm running again,' all of a sudden a whole range of things come into play, requirements I have to change and move and do," Biden said.

"You say that it's much...
    WORLD leaders are taking BUSES to the Queen's funeral today - ditching their usual private motorcades. Presidents, PMs and other VIPs are travelling to Westminster Abbey in carpooled coaches to avoid the nightmare security operation of individual convoys crawling through London. 5Coaches with VIP’s on board drive from Royal Hospital Chelsea along The Embankment to the Queen’s funeral at WestminsterCredit: Ray Collins 5A convoy of buses travel to Westminster Hall But Joe Biden has been granted an exception to use his armoured "Beast" vehicle to get around the capital.

    Prince George, 9 and Princess Charlotte, 7, the elder children of William and Kate, were preparing to join the great and the good of the world as 2,000 mourners assembled at Westminster Abbey Monday morning for the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, who ruled Great Britain for over 70 years. Joe Biden arrived shortly after 10 a.m. local time, and was the only world leader permitted to arrive in the Beast, the fortified presidential limousine, in a reduced motorcade of six vehicles. Other leaders arrived by bus. Former British prime ministers, and the present prime minister, Liz Truss, were also in attendance. The funeral was due to begin at 11am local time, in the same church where the queen was crowned in 1953, with guests including Kate Middleton’s parents, Michael and Carole joining a jaw-dropping cast of global dignitaries. It was expected that up to 100 heads of government or state would attend the funeral, dwarfing the estimated fifty who attended Nelson Mandela’s memorial. It is believed to be the biggest gathering of world leaders in history....

    President Biden has said he doesn't believe the economy is as bad as people think, despite inflation being at a 40-year high and that the pandemic is finally 'over'. Biden, who rarely does interviews, made the assertions during an interview with CBS 60 Minutes on Sunday. His optimistic view on the state of the economy came after stocks fell sharply last week when a key August inflation report came in hotter than expected, hurting investor optimism for cooling prices and a less aggressive Federal Reserve. The August consumer price index report showed a higher-than-expected reading for inflation. Headline inflation rose 0.1% month over month, even with falling gas prices.  President Biden has promised to take 'control' of inflation, currently at 8.3% Despite the record rate of inflation, Biden appeared to downplay the news by noting how the rate had barely budged since July. 'Let's put this in perspective. Inflation rate month to month was just an inch, hardly at all,' Biden began.  Core inflation rose 0.6% month over month - but on a year-over-year basis, inflation is at 8.3%.  'We're...
    President Joe Biden vowed that the United States would use its own force to defend Taiwan if China invaded the island in an explosive 60 minutes interview on Sunday. 'Would U.S. forces defend the island?' 60 Minutes' Scott Pelley asked the president after pushing pushing him on the extent of his commitment to Taiwan. 'Yes, if in fact there was an unprecedented attack,' Mr. Biden said.   'So unlike Ukraine, to be clear, sir,' Pelley continued, 'US forces, US men and women would defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion?' 'Yes,' Biden said. The president's comments came in his first television interview in seven months, in which he also declared the COVID-19 pandemic was officially over, and refused to comment on whether or not he planned to run for reelection in 2024.

    The 'tentative' deal President Joe Biden brokered between US freight rail companies and unions in the hopes of avoiding a massive economic disruption is at risk of collapsing, spelling trouble for the embattled president on the eve of the midterm elections. Though the deal agreed to raise rail employees' salaries by 24 percent over five years and gave up to $11,000 in bonuses, union leaders said it remains 'intentionally' vague about sick leave and other days off.  Organizer for Railroad Workers United, Ron Kaminkow, said the average rail worker felt 'a lot of anger, confusion and hostility' towards the deal.  The average rail worker put it more bluntly: 'Workers are pissed off and this time we actually have a lot of leverage,' said one locomotive engineer, according to The Hill, 'I know I'm not going to accept anything less than what we deserve.' Rail workers are scheduled to vote on the deal this Thursday, but if just one of the 12 railroad unions votes against the deal thousands of workers could go on strike and bring commerce to a halt across North...
