HAVANA (Reuters) - Argentina football legend Diego Maradona said his hero, late Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro - whom he considered a “second father” and whose face he had tattooed on his leg - once urged him to go into politics. “Everything Fidel does, everything Chavez does for me is the best (that can be done),” Maradona said on Chavez’s weekly television show in 2007. Tedeschi recalls the time Maradona knocked on his door and proposed a spontaneous visit to Castro. “They would always talk about politics - Diego was really interested in politics,” said Tedeschi, adding that Castro would also pay spontaneous visits to his Havana home. The terrorist mafia of Miami!”As such, Maradona was also a propaganda tool for Latin America’s leftist leaders, said Tedeschi.

Before the event, a local drag racer had warned via Facebook Live that Black Lives Matter was coming “to bring hate to our town,” according to BuzzFeed. Black Lives Matter protesters, encircled by police, from right, and counter protesters, from left, meet along East Plane Street in Bethel, Ohio on June 15, 2020. The actions of the Minneapolis police reminded them of the corrupt, brutal authorities back in India, Kaur recalled. The group’s youth summer program, which usually visits Pismo Beach for a week, instead held discussions via Zoom on Black Lives Matter. “I see Kevin on the side of the road — what’s he doing?” he recalled one of them saying.

Edward P. Lazear, Economist and Presidential Adviser, Dies at 72

Professor Lazear began his professional career in 1974 as an assistant professor of economics at the University of Chicago. “He was the most natural economist I ever came into contact with,” said Paul Oyer, an economist at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business. Productivity at the business soared when it shifted from paying workers an hourly wage to paying them according to the number of windshields they repaired. Professor Lazear figured out that this improvement hadn’t come about just because people had worked harder to earn more money. Professor Lazear wrote another famous paper explaining the rationale behind mandatory retirement, which was outlawed by Congress in 1986.

Just last week Trump summoned Michigan Republican leaders to the White House to try to throw out the state's election results. The most egregious example is Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, the subject of an ethics complaint we filed, along with former Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub, last Wednesday with the Senate Ethics Committee. Senate ethics rules prohibit Senate employees from engaging in campaign activity, unless it is clear that they do so on their own time, outside of Senate space, and without using Senate resources. Senate ethics rules prohibit Senate employees from engaging in campaign activity, unless it is clear that they do so on their own time, outside of Senate space, and without using Senate resources. Both Georgia and South Carolina, Graham’s home state, have a history of infringing on the voting rights of African Americans.

Rudy Giuliani was brought in to lead an "elite strike force" of lawyers to guide President Donald Trump's legal challenges to the 2020 election, but their efforts have been "dysfunctional" and "an embarrassment," based on "unsubstantiated evidence" and "outlandish claims," legal experts told NBC News. Election lawyer Matthew Sanderson compared Giuliani unfavorably to James Baker, who led George W. Bush's legal effort in the 2000 presidential election. Earlier in the same Pennsylvania case, Giuliani was seeking to add back in arguments his predecessors had dropped, presumably because they didn't have the evidence to back their claims. "It's a pernicious, problematic attempt to bedraggle our democratic processes," Pérez said, adding the legal campaign has been full of "unsubstantiated allegations, inadequate evidence and outlandish claims." Kirschner, an NBC News legal analyst, said, "It angers me when I hear Donald Trump's lawyers and defenders say, 'You have every right to bring these cases.'

The letter sent by the General Services Administration (GSA) to President-elect Joe Biden authorizing his transition does not say that he won the election. The letter to authorize President-elect Joe Biden's transition arrived late Monday — but is an unusual document which strained to avoid acknowledging his victory. GSA Administrator Emily Murphy wrote to Biden on Monday, 16 tumultuous days after major networks widely called the election for him. Williams' 2008 letter used boilerplate wording to name Obama President-elect "for the purposes of the Act" — i.e., to authorize the transition and no more.

Human rights groups and progressives have expressed concern about President-elect Joe Biden's pick for director of national intelligence, Avril Haines. But human rights groups and progressives have expressed concern about his choice for director of national intelligence (DNI), Avril Haines. Haines, a former deputy CIA director who would be the first woman to serve as the top US spy chief if confirmed, played a central role in crafting the legal framework surrounding the Obama administration's controversial, secretive drone war. The Obama administration faced heavy criticism from human rights groups and progressives over civilian casualties linked to the drone strikes. She recommended Gina Haspel for CIA director, though Haspel has been implicated in the agency's use of torture.

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.”

Patrick Quinn, who helped popularize the viral Ice Bucket Challenge that has raised over $220 million for global research into amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, died on Sunday, according to the ALS Association. The Ice Bucket Challenge proved hugely popular, with videos of high-profile participants from Bill Gates, to Lady Gaga and former President George W. Bush clocking millions of hits. Download the NBC News app for full coverage of the coronavirus outbreak"It dramatically accelerated the fight against ALS, leading to new research discoveries, expanded care for people living with ALS, and significant investment from the government in ALS research," the ALS Association wrote in a statement on its website on Sunday. It typically strikes between the ages of 40 and 70, and average life expectancy after symptoms begin is three years, the ALS Association says. "The Ice Bucket Challenge connected with a sweet left hook to the jaw of ALS and shook the disease up," Quinn told a crowd in Boston in 2019, five years after the social media campaign.

Trump’s effort to prevent Biden, a Democrat, from taking office on Jan. 20 likely will be doomed if officials confirm Biden as the winner of the votes in Michigan and Pennsylvania. Biden beat Trump in Michigan by more than 150,000 votes, or almost 3 percentage points, and the election canvassing board is required to validate the count. Ron Klain, the incoming White House chief of state, said on Sunday that Biden will announce his first Cabinet picks on Tuesday. The Trump campaign’s focus remains on an increasingly desperate quest to delay certification of the election results in several states, an effort that has mostly met with failure. More than 100 former Republican national security officials demanded in a published letter on Monday that party leaders denounce Trump’s refusal to concede the election, calling it a dangerous and anti-democratic assault on U.S. institutions.

Millions were at risk of evictions, demand was surging for FHA mortgages, and small business failures continued to mount. While the two administrations had many differing views, we facilitated the smooth transition of power to ensure that people kept their homes and that small businesses could stay in business. Small businesses, homeowners, renters and nonprofits will again require significant support from the next administration and the next Congress. Today, most small businesses and many nonprofits have less than 30 days' cash on hand and backlogged expenses. If this doesn't happen, small business owners and their employees will suffer.

Sun Belt presidents like Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush were among the first politicians to recognize the power of Latino conservatives. “That’s pretty good.”“Donald Trump got more Hispanic votes than Romney,” the coalition’s president, Hector Barreto Jr., pointed out to me about the 2016 election. Hispanics that voted for Donald Trump did not vote for Donald Trump because of the comments that he made during the campaign. They didn’t vote for him because they thought that he was going to be against their best interests. Under Garza, Libre has deliberately recruited Latino evangelicals.

We understood then what should be evident now: Matters of national security must transcend domestic political division. Today, as our country faces vast foreign and domestic risks, President-elect Joe Biden’s transition must be treated not as an exercise in politics but as the security imperative it is. What’s more, Mr. Biden’s transition team has been denied access to federal agencies, transition funds, office space and classified information. Perhaps most alarmingly, the president-elect has not yet been able to begin government background checks on key national security appointees, which could stall appointments, putting American national security at risk. On Nov. 12, a group of over 150 former national security officials issued a letter warning that “delaying the transition further poses a serious risk to our national security.”An orderly presidential transition is needed to keep America secure.

Relatives were initially hesitant to share the news with him, instead waiting several weeks before explaining why Richard DeLisi was unable to return his son’s phone calls. Advocates for DeLisi have worked for decades to secure his early release from prison, citing both health and legal concerns. As more states decriminalize and legalize cannabis, draconian prison sentences need to be revisited, said Chiara Juster, a marijuana criminal reform advocate and lawyer on DeLisi’s legal team. Richard DeLisi appealed that same year but was unsuccessful. When Richard DeLisi is finally released from prison, Rick DeLisi intends to pack up his family and fly to the U.S. despite the pandemic.

GOP Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee on Friday seemed to acknowledge former Vice President Joe Biden's win over President Donald Trump, calling him the president-elect in a Friday interview with ABC News. But Blackburn's office later told The Tennessean she misspoke in calling Biden as the president-elect and Sen. Kamala Harris the vice president-elect. "I have not spoken with the president-elect," Blackburn, a known ally of President Donald Trump, told ABC News anchor Juju Chang during a live appearance Friday.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Friday certified the Nov. 3 election results, declaring President-elect Joe Biden the winner of the state. Mr. Biden was ahead by more than 12,000 votes in Georgia, according to audit results released Thursday. Mr. Biden’s victory in Georgia is the first for a Democratic presidential candidate since Bill Clinton narrowly defeated Republican President George H.W. Under Georgia law, after an election is certified, a candidate can request a recount if the margin of victory is less than 0.5%. Mr. Trump is within that margin.

WASHINGTON — Progressives are ramping up their public pressure on President-Elect Joe Biden to appoint progressives to key jobs in his incoming administration and keep out corporate executives, lobbyists and consultants. We expect hundreds of thousands of them will," said David Segal, the co-founder of the progressive group Demand Progress. "That's why it is imperative that the Biden administration appoint a Cabinet that puts the American people's interests over corporate agendas." In 2008, the progressive movement largely demobilized after helping Barack Obama get elected. "We're just here to say that we want and we ask Joe Biden to be brave, to be big, to be bold."

The joint statement of Perdue and Loeffler claiming mismanagement and corruption in their state’s elections reflects both bad temper and bad judgment. What the senators' statements suggest is less that the election was tainted than that their re-election prospects are precarious. What the senators' statements suggest is less that the election was tainted, than that their re-election prospects are precarious. Indeed, reports indicate that Trump demanded that Perdue and Loeffler undermine the credibility of Georgia’s election results and call for Raffensperger’s resignation. Hoping to retain the president’s support during their runoff campaigns, they apparently dutifully complied.
