President-elect Biden's actions this past week underscore that he understands his opportunity and is in a hurry to achieve it. So how has President Trump been helpful to President-elect Biden's ambitions, particularly with his actions of the past days? They are even more keen now, having seen the dangers to American democracy in such stark relief, to embrace President-elect Biden. "President Biden is facing not only an economic crisis but also a political crisis, a cultural crisis, a public-health crisis and an epistemological one," said historian Jon Meacham in The Wall Street Journal. Biden faces vast challenges, but Donald Trump through his actions of the past days inadvertently made the President-elect's job easier.

While not all of the rioters last week wore costumes, and indeed a majority of them did not, nearly all wore symbols or logos or insignias of some kind. Rioters came together at the rally, gathering strength in numbers and by identifying with one another through their symbols and costumes.

The team around Trump is hollowed out, with the White House counsel's office not drawing up a legal defense plan and the legislative affairs team largely abandoned. WASHINGTON (AP) — His place in the history books about to be rewritten, President Donald Trump awaited his second impeachment — something no other president has faced — largely alone and silent. Trump kept out of sight in a nearly empty White House as impeachment proceedings played out at the heavily fortified Capitol. There were lawyers, White House messaging meetings, and a media blitz run by allies on conservative television, radio and websites. But there was no effort from the White House to line up votes in the president's defense.

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas helped lead the Senate attempt to object to Joe Biden’s victory. But you will not abide the election of a Republican president! But much of the Republican response is exactly this kind of threat: If you hold President Trump accountable for his actions, then we won’t help you unify the country. It is another way of saying that they, meaning Democrats, shot first, so we, meaning Republicans, are absolved of any responsibility for our actions. If Democrats want some semblance of normalcy — if they want to be able to govern — then the price for Republicans is impunity for Trump.

In recent years, the writer has become regarded as a secular saint of American literature, with his Buddhist-inflected beliefs in fiction’s moral, purifying mission. They’re stranded in the bardo — Tibetan purgatory — and loafing around a graveyard when they’re interrupted by Abraham Lincoln. The desperate, botched rescue operation is a common feature in Saunders’s work, and his fiction itself has the feeling of a rescue operation — on us, the reader.

Some eight Republican senators and 139 Republican House members objected to the Electoral College vote confirming President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. It prolonged and drew attention to a process that, for nearly every presidential election, has served as a rubber stamp. It served as a chance for Republican members to signal their fealty to Donald Trump above all else. Greene alleged that there was fraud or mismanagement in her home state's presidential election — but that her own vote tally remains accurate. Not long ago, calling for the overturning of a presidential election was seen as a risky activity.

In the confusion that followed Wednesday’s desecration of the Capitol, it was widely reported that the last time the building was stormed was in 1814. The key difference between then and now is that the building was guarded by men who were prepared for the onslaught. In the days before the count, rumors had been spreading across the capital that armed militias might sweep in from Virginia and take over the Capitol or the entire District of Columbia. Scott was a proud Southerner, born near Petersburg, Va., seven years before the cornerstone of the Capitol was laid in 1793, well before there was a city surrounding it. But above all, he was a patriot, in the original sense of a word that has been abused in recent days.

But the military has been called out on multiple occasions in response to civil unrest — and it hasn't just been the National Guard, either. When it comes to curbing civil unrest, the military has been called out on multiple occasions — and it wasn't just the National Guard, either. The New York Draft Riots are still the largest civil disturbance in American history. George Romney (yes, Mitt Romney's dad) chose to call in the Michigan National Guard. Even after the National Guard was deployed, the violence continued, causing $10 million dollars in damages ($77.6 million today) and killing 26 with hundreds injured.

It sounded reasonable, provided the Google team could rein in the costs and make the sensors reliable. But it didn't take him long to imagine what a working self-driving car could do for his business. "We need to fire Anthony Levandowski," Urmson told some colleagues in an August 4 email that was later introduced in court. In March 2018, a few weeks after the lawsuit with Waymo ended, a self-driving Uber car hit and killed a woman in Tempe, Arizona. Subsequent reports revealed not just that the effort had a shoddy safety culture, but that it had made little progress toward a self-driving car.

Levandowski had been sidelined at Google in favor of Chris Urmson, his onetime roommate and longtime rival. Years of infighting and indecision within Google's team — much of it centered on Levandowski and Urmson — had left the search giant vulnerable to competitors. Core members of Google's self-driving team included Chris Urmson, far left, and Levandowski, far right. By 2016, Uber's self-driving research team was hot on Google's tail, and CEO Travis Kalanick was desperate to close the gap. Davies interviewed more than 120 people and spent years charting the messy evolution of the self-driving car industry, a story filled with technological breakthroughs, trade secret thievery, stupid t-shirts, and more.
