The photograph was originally posted on Flickr here by Hillary Clinton’s campaign Hillary for America. It was also posted in 2016 on a Reddit thread here and in an article by The Week here . The photograph was posted again by Clinton on social media here and here on Jan. 20, 2021 to congratulate Biden’s inauguration. This may have created confusion among users who thought the photograph was taken on inauguration day without face masks. The photograph of Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden was taken in 2016, not in 2021.

Opinion | A President Can Govern in Poetry

On Day 1, he rejoined the community of nations who’ve agreed to the Paris climate accord. He envisions a Rooseveltian campaign to get 100 million Covid vaccine shots into the arms of Americans in his first 100 days. For starters, how does a president who sees the essential goodness in everyone deal with a party whose base doesn’t even believe in the legitimacy of his presidency? How does he bring the conspiracy theorists back to planet Earth, and cool the tribal passions that fueled the insurrection on Jan. 6? If he fails, well, I’m sorry to remind you that most Irish poetry is rooted in despair, in a country whose currency for centuries was misery.

And it's really important to know that these white nationalist attackers and those that enabled them have benefited from the increased state surveillance power at nearly every turn in our history. It's really important that we follow the processes, [the] current powers that we have now to hold these groups accountable. Civil rights groups. With every foreign government that is not meeting international human rights standards, [we ought to] talk to human rights groups, and use our tax dollars as leverage to promote human rights, principles, and values. So I think it's really important for us to be so focused on that versus choosing a side.

Democrats control the White House and both chambers of Congress for the first time in a decade. Academic discussions about reining in presidential power won't take precedence while the COVID-19 pandemic's US death toll is above 400,000 and still climbing. "You will not see a political rally on the South Lawn of the White House under President Biden," she said. Congressional Republicans — and the rest of the country — are still getting accustomed to life after the Trump administration. Back when their party held the White House, GOP lawmakers routinely assailed attempts by Democrats to reign in presidential power.

Senator Ted Cruz repeated Donald Trump's America-centric climate rhetoric as President Joe Biden rejoined the Paris agreement on his first day in office. Cruz’s comment on Wednesday was met with criticism on Twitter, with users pointing out the obvious: the Paris agreement is a multinational effort. Meanwhile, Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., also criticized Biden's decision to rejoin the Paris agreement, saying in a tweet it will cost American jobs and "force households and small business to pay higher utility bills." Biden’s rejoining of the Paris accord marks the start of a major policy reversal for the U.S. on the international stage, but he is already facing pushback at home. The senators’ move reflects the deep-seated political divisions over climate policy that could hamper Biden’s ambitious $2 trillion climate plan.

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain is resisting an EU demand that it grant full diplomatic status to the bloc’s ambassador in London, causing a row between the recently divorced parties that spilled out into the open on Thursday. Olivier Hoslet/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoBritain, an EU member for 46 years, voted to quit in 2016 and completed its tortuous journey out of the bloc on Dec. 31, when Brexit fully took effect. Stano added that when Britain was still an EU member, it had been supportive of the diplomatic status of EU delegations. “Nothing has changed since the UK’s exit from the European Union to justify any change in stance on the UK’s part,” he said. “It has been conferred substantial competences by its member states, has the power to adopt legislation binding on its member states, has its own decision-making institutions and its own system of judicial control, and has established a common currency,” Stano said.

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain and the European Union are at odds over the British government’s refusal to grant EU representatives’ full diplomatic status in London after Brexit. Stano added that when Britain was still an EU member, it had been supportive of the diplomatic status of EU delegations. “Nothing has changed since the UK’s exit from the European Union to justify any change in stance on the UK’s part,” he said. A British government source said the issue of the EU delegation’s status was subject to ongoing negotiations. Former U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration lowered the status of the EU delegation to Washington in January 2019, but later reversed the decision and restored full diplomatic status to it.

The Three Types of Republicans Donald Trump Created

Donald J. Trump departed the White House on Wednesday and left a Republican Party turned upside down. Many Republicans tried not to let Mr. Trump change things, vowing never to vote for him or work in his administration — and to publicly shame those who did. And there were others — comprising the most vocal segment of elected Republicans and a considerable portion of the voters who helped Mr. Trump win 10 million more votes than he did in 2016 — who are still with him, defying every last-straw prediction about the end of the iron grip Trump has on the G.O.P. Here is a taxonomy of the types of Republicans Mr. Trump leaves in his wake. Never TrumpersThey wrote open letters, boycotted the Republican National Convention twice, started podcasts and websites and raised millions of dollars for their efforts to defeat him.

The Port Authority has eliminated several alternatives, including building the new terminal under the old one, under the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center or in New Jersey. “They’ve come up with a much better plan than they had originally,” said Thomas K. Wright, chief executive of the Regional Plan Association, an influential planning group. More than 250,000 people passed through it on a typical weekday before the pandemic, according to the Port Authority. The Port Authority wants the new terminal to be able to handle 1,000 buses during the peak evening rush hour, up from about 850 today. Buses may be less romantic than trains, but other big cities have been investing in their bus transit systems to help alleviate traffic and pollution from cars.

Christopher Black/WHO/Handout via REUTERSGENEVA (Reuters) - World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Wednesday welcomed a proposal by the European Council to negotiate a global treaty on pandemic preparedness, noting it would be the second such treaty after a tobacco pact of 2003. Tedros, addressing the WHO’s Executive Board, referred to the proposal made by European Union Council President Charles Michel in December and said: “As you know we have the Tobacco Convention and if we can make this happen, this would be the second Convention or the second treaty and for a very important area, pandemic preparedness and response. “All of us have seen how unprecedented this pandemic is, and we have to give it our best. And I think a treaty is the best thing that we can do that can that (bring) the political commitment of member states,” Tedros added.

The latter issue remains unresolved, as Greece only wants to discuss the demarcation of maritime zones in the Aegean and the Mediterranean.

(Reuters) - Marge Hobley has waited four years for the day she could finally celebrate the end of Donald Trump’s chaotic presidency.

Some Biden voters said their feelings about Inauguration Day mirror their emotions in November, when their enthusiasm about the Democrat’s victory was tempered by Trump’s enduring support among so many American voters. They canceled their flights five days after the Capitol attack due to the reports that further violence was possible.

Diamond and Silk, the former Fox News personalities and self-styled "warriors" for Trump, were part of a group who argued for the commutation of former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's sentence. Kilpatrick was sentenced to 28 years in prison after being found guilty of mail fraud, wire fraud, and racketeering. Diamond and Silk, the former Fox News personalities who refer to themselves as "warriors" for Trump, signed on in support of the commutation of Kilpatrick's sentence. Kilpatrick was convicted in 2013 on 24 felony counts related to mail fraud, wire fraud, and racketeering, and sentenced to 28 years in prison. When the city of Detroit declared bankruptcy in 2013, Kilpatrick's mayorship was held partly responsible.

President Donald Trump's final list of pardons was released on Tuesday night and included more than 140 people. Many on the list were low-level non-violent drug offenders, but Trump also offered pardons and clemency to some surprising figures. Among the list are a one-time Trump administration nominee, a snake smuggler, and a former Google exec convicted of stealing company secrets. Trump granted him a full pardon.

(CNN) Much has been written about Donald Trump's "TV presidency," and how the former reality-TV star sought to produce his time in the White House. Throughout his presidential campaign, however, Joe Biden's team -- in its adherence to Covid protocols -- has been shaped through the language of television, creating crowd-pleasing TV moments minus the crowds. While Trump continued to emphasize in-person events, speaking to crowds and rallies, Biden used TV to get out his message.

But while the courage these Trump business partners mustered is late and opportunistic, their defections are part of a longer trend that's likely to leave the Trump Organization flailing for capital. But in the past, he wasn't also battling a personal and professional brand that over the past four years has become increasingly toxic. We learned yesterday that Trump’s largest lender, Deutsche Bank, is done doing business with him. Before he took office, no U.S. major bank was willing to do business with him. "Around that time, the bank decided never again to do business with Trump," Enrich said.

During his four years in office, Mr. Trump transformed much of the Republican Party in his image. Aides to Mr. Biden described his Wilmington remarks as a “send-off” moment ahead of the more formal inaugural events in Washington. In his ITV interview, Mr. Barr was unwilling to discuss any role that Mr. Trump might have played in the mob attack.

There are loud echoes between those who joined the massive resistance and the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol. The failure to fully stamp out the so-called massive resistance is contributing to the insurrection we see today. Some white supremacists ended up paying a considerable price for their crimes in the civil rights era, albeit decades after the fact. Members of the Southern bloc react as a civil rights plank is adopted during the Democratic National Convention in July 1948. The forces of massive resistance that entered the Republican Party's bloodstream after the 1960s need to be uprooted.

“It’s striking,” said Ralph Richard Banks, a law professor at Stanford who has written about race, gender and family patterns. Ms. Harris, the daughter of Indian and Jamaican immigrants, was raised with both Christian and Hindu practices, while her husband, who is white, grew up attending Jewish summer camp. (At their wedding, Ms. Harris took part in the Jewish ritual of smashing a glass.) Ms. Harris did not have children. She has often said that being “Momala” to her stepchildren is the role “that means the most” to her.

But so far his inauguration committee won't disclose how it's spending that money, and progressives are demanding transparency. The public may also never know how the Biden inaugural committee spends any surplus cash it generates. The secrecy in Biden's inaugural spending also coincides with separate and ongoing civil and criminal court cases involving President Donald Trump's 2017 inauguration spending. Biden's inaugural committee is funding five day's worth of programs, including musical performances, celebrity appearances, speeches, and the like. Just give us information so Americans can have faith that inauguration money is being spent on the inauguration."

The German Justice Ministry said Navalny was interviewed by Berlin prosecutors and provided “extensive answers” to questions submitted by Russia’s general prosecutor’s office. These transcripts have now been made available to Russia as allowed by the European Mutual Legal Assistance Convention, the spokesman said.
