Rare for an inaugural address, President Joe Biden issued a strong repudiation of white supremacy and domestic terrorism seen on the rise under Donald Trump. And now a rise of political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront and we will defeat.”Compared to his immediate predecessors, three of whom attended Wednesday’s inauguration, Biden is the first president to directly address the ills of white supremacy in an inaugural speech. In his second inaugural address in 1997, former President Bill Clinton called out racial divisions as “America’s constant curse,” but stopped short of naming culprits. “Then, we can focus on thriving Black lives through investments in health, education, housing, and environmental justice.”Biden began addressing some of these issues in a series of executive orders signed after the inauguration. “We must set aside politics and finally face this pandemic as one nation.”In his speech, Biden invoked Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation committing to freeing enslaved Africans during the Civil War.

Column: Can Biden transform the U.S. energy system?

REUTERS/Tom BrennerPresident Joe Biden’s first executive actions after his inauguration on Thursday to move quickly to tackle climate change have raised questions over the ability of administrations to transform the U.S. energy system. The historical record, however, shows administrations leave little imprint at macro-level on the energy system, implying both the hopes and expectations of supporters, and the anxieties of opponents, are probably exaggerated. The energy system – everything from coal mines and gas wells to oil refineries, generating stations, pipelines, power lines, highways, vehicles and customer appliances – consists of trillions of dollars of very long-lived assets. Between 1973 and 2019, the share of total primary energy consumption supplied by fossil fuels declined from 92% to 80%, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (“Monthly energy review”, EIA, Dec. 23). System inertia has produced some surprising results; presidents do not always get the system changes for which they planned.

Uncle Gary, 67, who pleaded guilty to drug conspiracy charges in 1984 but served no prison time, never expected to receive a pardon from Trump. "I thought that was the end of it for me," said Gary, a Pennsylvania radio show host and former addict who has spent more than 30 years helping people recover from addiction. He also hosts a radio show, "Clean and Sober Radio," which features musicians, athletes and political figures who discuss their battles with substance abuse. He has "mentored many individuals on their journey to sobriety with his radio broadcasts," read the description of Gary released by the Trump administration. "It was totally regular," said Love, who ran the Office of the Pardon Attorney during the George H.W.

Former President Donald Trump granted extended Secret Service protections to his four adult children and their spouses before he left the White House, The Washington Post reported. The extended security detail could cost taxpayers millions of dollars, especially given the amount of traveling that the Trump children do related to the family company. Former President Donald Trump extended Secret Service protections for all of his adult children and their spouses, as well as three top administration officials, just before leaving the White House, The Washington Post reported Wednesday. Trump isn't the first president to extend Secret Service protections to those who aren't automatically entitled to receive them. Just hours before, Trump and former First Lady Melania Trump left the White House aboard Marine One to Palm Beach, Florida.

Insider senior correspondent Dave Levinthal scored an official press pass to cover President Joe Biden's inauguration live at the US Capitol. Getting the final green light to attend the ceremony required a negative COVID-19 test and navigating plenty of tight security. It began with President Donald Trump still spewing lies and refusing to accept the outcome of a free and fair election he lost. As a reporter assigned to cover Biden's inauguration ceremony, the short and turbulent path to a literal front-row seat to history provided a poignant and personal metaphor — one both of fear and of hope. There would have also been noise, noise, noise, noise, because Washington, DC, is a city of noise.

Tom Hanks hosted a concert in honor of President Biden’s inauguration. Midway through the performance, Mr. Biden and the first lady, Jill Biden, emerged to take in the display for themselves. “President Bush was acknowledging the congressman’s role in saving President Biden’s candidacy — nothing more, nothing biblical.” Mr. Bush is no fan of Mr. Trump, who beat his brother Jeb Bush for the Republican nomination in 2016. He also taped a segment with Mr. Clinton and Mr. Obama showed on television Wednesday night sending best wishes to Mr. Biden.

President Joe Biden will keep FBI Director Christopher Wray in his position, a White House official told NBC News. Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, declined to say whether Wray would hold onto his role during her first press conference on Wednesday. The Justice Department, which contains the FBI, is also probing the financial affairs of Biden's son, Hunter Biden. Prior to Comey, only one FBI director had been fired in the bureau's history. Former President Bill Clinton fired William Sessions in 1993 after a Justice Department report raised ethics questions.

To the Editor:Re “‘Democracy Has Prevailed’: Biden Vows to Mend Nation” (front page, Jan. 21):President Biden’s inauguration brought to mind Bill Clinton’s first inauguration in 1993, which I watched at a reception in Moscow. The person standing next to me, a Russian general, was staring wistfully at the television screen. Through the general’s eyes I saw how extraordinary our ordinariness really was, and I was proud. President Biden’s inauguration also made me proud. We have enormous challenges, but if my Russian general had watched this inauguration, I believe he would have been encouraged by our renewed appreciation of American democracy and the rituals that celebrate it.

Two aspects of Biden's appeal made it uniquely authentic to him: context and consistency. The speech was elegantly humble in delivering a single, inoffensive thought into the collective conscience of the nation: Biden wants unity. Biden's message Wednesday, delivered in his plain-spoken style, tracked with his repeated election-year pledge to view political opponents as friends who disagree. His backdrop — literally, as he so often says — was the same West Front of the Capitol that was filled two weeks ago by rioters who sought to stop Congress from sealing his election. Whatever the fate of his presidency, Biden started off with a basic premise about what it means for the problems afflicting the country.

President-elect Joe Biden will be sworn-in as the 46th president of the United States Wednesday at noon, amid a devastating global pandemic and the threat of possible domestic terrorism. President Donald Trump won't be in attendance, making him the first president to skip his successor's inauguration in more than 150 years. The inaugural theme is "America United," a theme Biden campaigned on and which he is expected to focus on in his speech. As is tradition, the chief justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts, will administer the oath of office to Biden just after the clock strikes 12. Biden will take the oath with his hand on top of his 127-year-old, 5-inch-thick family Bible, which will be held by his wife, Jill Biden.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrat Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th president of the United States on Wednesday, assuming the helm of a country beset by deep political divides and battered by a raging coronavirus pandemic. The ceremony will unfold in front of a heavily fortified U.S. Capitol, where a mob of Trump supporters stormed the building two weeks ago, enraged by his false claims that November’s election was stolen with millions of fraudulent votes. The violence prompted the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives to impeach Trump last week for an unprecedented second time. It will require approval from a deeply divided Congress, where Democrats will hold slim advantages in both the House and Senate. The trial could serve as an early test of Biden’s promise to foster a renewed sense of bipartisanship in Washington.
