WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. government civil servants could face mass firings under an executive order before President Donald Trump leaves office and Democratic lawmakers, watchdog groups and unions are mobilizing to block the move. U.S. President Donald Trump arrives to speak to reporters in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House in Washington, U.S., November 24, 2020. Trump’s order allows agencies to reclassify workers involved in policy-making to a new “Schedule F” category without the job protections they have now. The White House order says Trump is pushing to streamline the federal bureaucracy, increase accountability and make it easier to clear out “poor performers.” The federal government employs about 2 million people in total. Creating the new category of federal workers would expose the civil service to “undue political influence and intimidation,” the committee chairs warned in their letter.

U.S. President Donald Trump arrives to speak to reporters in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House in Washington, U.S., November 24, 2020. SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters Breakingviews) - Donald Trump has only two more months to lash out at China as U.S. president. Trump vowed to be tough on the People’s Republic, and there’s no reason to think he won’t continue until the end. Politically, though, whatever Trump does might box him into a corner. As different as Biden is from his predecessor, it may be Trump who sets the tone for the next administration’s relationship with an important trade partner.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday called for President-elect Joe Biden's electoral victory to be overturned, and spread unproven claims of voter fraud while falsely insisting he won a series of key swing states that went to Biden. "This election has to be turned around," Trump asserted elsewhere in the speakerphone speech. "We won Pennsylvania by a lot and we won all of these swing states by a lot." Nevada, another key state, on Tuesday also certified Biden and Harris as the winners. Michigan and Georgia, too, have certified their votes, dragging Trump's long-shot bid to undo the election result even further out of reach.

Biden later told reporters in Wilmington, Delaware that he has not had an intelligence briefing but that it had been offered. On Monday, the General Services Administration, the federal agency that must sign off on presidential transitions, told Biden he could formally begin the hand-over process.

New Trump rule may require some African tourists to pay up to $15,000 in bonds

REUTERS/Carlos BarriaWASHINGTON (Reuters) - The outgoing administration of U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday issued a new temporary rule that could require tourist and business travelers from two dozen countries, most in Africa, to pay a bond of as much as $15,000 to visit the United States. Trump, who lost a re-election bid earlier this month, made restricting immigration a central part of his four-year term in office. The visa bond rule will allow U.S. consular officers to require tourist and business travelers from countries whose nationals had an “overstay rate” of 10% or higher in 2019 to pay a refundable bond of $5,000, $10,000 or $15,000. Historically, U.S. consular officers have been discouraged from requiring travelers to the United States to post a bond, with State Department guidance saying processing of the bonds would be “cumbersome,” the temporary rule said. Countries whose tourist and business travelers could be subject to the bond requirement include those from Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, Sudan, Chad, Angola, Burundi, Djibouti and Eritrea.

REUTERS/Carlos BarriaLOS ANGELES (Reuters) - More than 100 former Republican national security officials demanded on Monday that party leaders denounce President Donald Trump’s refusal to concede the presidential election, calling it a dangerous and anti-democratic assault on U.S. institutions. Comprising some of the most senior national security officials in the Republican administrations of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. The group - Former Republican National Security Officials for Biden - which formed in August and whose members campaigned against Trump, was particularly critical of Republican congressional leaders in a published letter. “By encouraging President Trump’s delaying tactics or remaining silent, Republican leaders put American democracy and national security at risk,” the group writes. The Trump campaign has described Republican-led groups that backed Biden as disaffected former officials “trying to take down the duly elected president of the United States.” Trump on Twitter referred last year to “Never Trump Republicans” as “human scum.”

JUDGE TOSSES SUIT TO BLOCK BIDEN’S PENNSYLVANIA WINThe Trump campaign sued on Nov. 9 to prevent Biden, a Democrat, from being certified by election officials as the winner in Pennsylvania. The lawsuit said Republican observers were denied access to the counting of mail-in ballots, a claim election officials dispute, and alleged inconsistent treatment of mail-in ballots by county officials. Mark “Thor” Hearne, the Trump campaign lawyer who submitted the document, told Reuters the sanctions request was frivolous and an attempt to score political points. Trump legal adviser Jenna Ellis said on Saturday in a tweet that the campaign could “refile” the Michigan case if it needs to. Pennsylvania election officials have said there were about 10,000 late-arriving ballots, which were separated.

Thomas TolstrupFor Americans who have had a tough year financially amid Covid-19, a second set of $1,200 stimulus checks would provide some much welcome relief. In addition, the economists call stimulus checks an "essential tool" for preventing poverty from increasing more. They also cite research from the Urban Institute, which found that two additional stimulus checks could help keep about 14 million people out of poverty. The legislation included additional $1,200 stimulus checks. The proposal includes $1,200 stimulus checks, but with more generous terms than the first set.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - After a scathing court setback in Pennsylvania, President Donald Trump faces increased pressure from his fellow Republicans to drop his effort to overturn the U.S. presidential election and concede to Democrat Joe Biden. Republican Senator Pat Toomey said the ruling closed off any chance for a legal victory in Pennsylvania and called on Trump to concede the election. Critics say Trump’s refusal to concede have serious implications for national security and the fight against the coronavirus, which has killed nearly 255,000 Americans. In Wisconsin, election officials have criticized Trump volunteers for slowing a partial recount that is not expected to overturn Biden’s victory. On Friday, he summoned two top Republicans in Michigan’s legislature to the White House.

“Fight hard Republicans,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday morning as he pressed his unsubstantiated narrative of voter fraud. For Trump to have any hope of remaining in the White House, he needed to somehow overcome Biden’s 81,000-vote margin in Pennsylvania, a state he won in 2016. In Wisconsin, election officials have criticized Trump volunteers for slowing a partial recount that is not expected to overturn Biden’s victory. On Friday, he summoned two top Republicans in Michigan’s legislature to the White House. Half of Republicans believe the election was stolen from Trump, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling, and some supporters have staged rallies across the country to protest the outcome.

A federal judge earlier on Saturday dismissed a lawsuit filed by Trump’s campaign that sought to throw out millions of mail-in votes in Pennsylvania, dealing a major blow to its flailing efforts to overturn his Nov. 3 election loss to Democratic President-elect Joe Biden.

Early series were reboots and remakes of popular radio programs, while variety shows harkened back to vaudeville. But in an attempt to recapture the tone of the original series, “Animaniacs” only highlights how much of our culture has (rightly) moved on. The current spate of reboots, reunions and recreations of older shows is not just a product of streaming programming. We are all getting older, and the world has changed, drastically, since the late 1980s and early '90s — politically, culturally and technologically.) But even if the world is in upheaval, nostalgic shows reassure us that our TV friends are still the same.

The second rule would compel pharmacy benefit managers to pass after-market rebates on to Medicare recipients as point-of-sale discounts. The Trump administration has discussed these and other policy changes to lower drug prices over the past four years but has not made substantive progress. The Pharmaceutical Care Management Association, which represents pharmacy benefit managers that run the Medicare prescription drug plans targeted by the rebate rule, said it is exploring litigation.

What’s fueling the record surge of gun sales in America

This trifecta of events made people worry about the future of America. Gun sales in 2020 have surged, and the market for gun parts and ammunition has gone up with it. "We've never, ever had a president of the United States and a vice president of the United States who embrace gun violence prevention and public health solutions to gun violence in the manner that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris do," said Kris Brown, the president of Brady, a gun reform group. Watch the video above to see what's been driving gun sales and what more guns in America means amid a tense political climate and global pandemic. Will the surge in gun sales begin to slow down as a Biden administration takes over in 2021 or will the specter of new gun regulation cause it to continue?
