WASHINGTON — Vice President Kamala Harris, after weeks of pressure from her political opponents, will visit the U.S.-Mexico border Friday, as part of her role addressing the root causes of migration. "[Harris' trip to the border] is really about building on the work that she has been doing. Republicans criticized Harris' decision to visit El Paso rather than other parts of the state like, the Rio Grande Valley, which see significantly more border crossings. Although partisan politics are likely to hang over Harris' trip Friday, she will also be forced to confront major policy issues. Rohini Kosoglu, domestic policy adviser to the vice president and one of Harris' longest serving aides, said that Harris "has spent her career fighting for immigrants."

Patients with lingering Covid-19 symptoms should wait even longer, the study suggested. Some experts said seven weeks is too arbitrary a threshold for scheduling surgery for patients who have had Covid-19. The operation to be performed, patients’ medical conditions and the risk of delaying surgery should all be factored in. Oregon Health and Sciences University clinicians developed a protocol a year ago for clearing any patient who had Covid-19 for elective surgery. If the assessment raises no red flags, patients can be cleared for surgery once they have waited the minimum seven weeks since their Covid-19 diagnosis.

Consumers Are Back Out Spending, Driving the Recovery
  + stars: | 2021-06-25 | by ( Sarah Chaney Cambon | ) + 0.85   time to read: +1 min
Consumers likely increased spending last month on services that they shunned earlier in the Covid-19 pandemic, helping fuel the broader economic recovery. Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal expect Friday’s Commerce Department report to show consumer spending rose 0.4% in May. They expect incomes fell 2.7% last month from April, as the boost faded from government stimulus checks sent out earlier in the year. Consumer spending is supported by rising vaccination rates and ample household savings from rounds of government stimulus when the pandemic restricted businesses and activities. Americans appear to be shifting their spending from big-ticket items to goods and services related to going out amid business reopenings.

The AP and The Philadelphia Inquirer petitioned a federal judge to unseal the case. Federal prosecutors did not oppose the request, and the judge agreed, paving the way for Thursday’s release of documents. The contractor detected an underground mass that weighed up to nine tons and had the density of gold, the affidavit said. Archer said that a turtle carving found on a rock near the proposed dig site was “very likely ... a KGC marker for that site." He noted the warrant granted by U.S. Magistrate Judge Richard Lloret gave FBI agents permission to dig from 6 a.m to 10 p.m.

Democrats and Republicans alike agree that there’s been a serious spike in violent crime over the last couple of years — the highest in more than a decade. Biden deserves kudos for standing up to his party’s loud progressive wing and insisting on taking action before more Americans needlessly die. The White House’s fact sheet on Biden’s crime-fighting plan talks of “gun violence resulting from the pandemic,” “gun violence exacerbated by the pandemic” and “gun violence associated with the pandemic.” In fact, the homicide spike “actually began in 2019, prior to the pandemic,” noted the National Commission on Covid-19 and Criminal Justice, a bipartisan panel assessing the pandemic’s effect on the justice system. More Americans believe violent crime is a “very big problem” than think the same about the coronavirus, a recent Yahoo News/YouGov poll found. In fact, violent crime was respondents’ top concern, beating the economy and race relations.

Lawmakers want to make COVID-19 vaccines available to Americans living abroad. Now a bipartisan group of lawmakers is urging the administration to help make vaccines available to the as many as 9 million Americans living abroad. "While Americans abroad are eligible to receive vaccines in some countries, in others, Americans are ineligible as non-citizens," the senators wrote. "Should Americans living abroad wish to travel to the US to receive the vaccine, the financial burden of travel as well as lengthy quarantine requirements upon return to their host country may be prohibitive." Accordingly, the senators wrote, "millions of Americans abroad worry they may not have access to a vaccine for months or even years."

He seemed skeptical of arguments from lawyers for Rudy Giuliani, Mike Lindell, and Sidney Powell. Dominion sued Giuliani, Powell, and MyPillow in three separate lawsuits filed in January and February, each one alleging $1.3 billion in damages. Attorneys for Giuliani, Powell, and Lindell have submitted a wide variety of legal defenses in recent months asking Nichols to throw out the lawsuits. Joe Sibley, representing Giuliani, said Dominion couldn't show evidence it had lost government contracts because of the Trump lawyer's allegations. Aside from their federal lawsuits with Dominion, each of the conspiracy theorists faces other headaches.

In March, the Biden administration identified 24 Chinese officials previously sanctioned by the Trump administration as responsible for reducing Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy.

If Trump were indicted and fled, he would go where there's no extradition treaty, legal experts say. The US would be in "uncharted territories" if it sought extradition of Trump, experts say. But the US and Russia have no extradition treaty or formal process through which a wanted person is arrested. Russian officials could agree to entertain Trump's application, which would trigger an international standoff between two countries with an already fraught relationship. If US authorities arrested Trump and won a criminal conviction against him, the former president's political career wouldn't necessarily stop there.

Republicans are itching to conduct investigations of Hunter Biden if they win the majority in 2022. GOP inquiries would force the White House to play whack-a-mole with Hunter Biden accusations. Republicans are gearing up for a hot pursuit of Hunter Biden should they win a majority in Congress in the 2022 midterms. Republicans say they want to know more about Hunter Biden's ties to China and the Ukraine gas company Burisma. Johnson has this year sent at least four letters to federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies demanding answers on different Hunter Biden allegations, including on possible ties to "foreign nationals connected to the communist Chinese government"; unethical links to a Biden administration DOJ appointee; and an incident allegedly involving Hunter Biden and a firearm.

UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock had an affair with an aide he hired on a £15,000 contract, The Sun reported. Hancock was pictured embracing Gina Coladangelo, a close friend from university who he hired. A Labour spokesperson said when "jobs are being offered to close friends who are in a personal relationship with a minister, then that needs to be looked into." Hancock, who is married, secretly hired former lobbyist Coladangelo as an adviser last year, The Sunday Times previously reported. Less than two weeks later, Hancock urged British people to minimise indoor contact with others to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Julian Assange's partner Stella Moris reacts after a court denied bail to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, outside the Westminster Magistrates Court in London, Britain January 6, 2021. REUTERS/Henry NichollsLONDON, June 25 (Reuters) - President Joe Biden must let Julian Assange go free if he wants the United States to become a beacon for a free press once again and put the legacy of Donald Trump behind it, the fiancée of the WikiLeaks founder told Reuters. "If Biden really wants to break with the Trump legacy, then he has to drop the case," Moris told Reuters in an interview. The U.S. Justice Department said in February it planned to continue to seek the extradition for Assange to face hacking conspiracy charges. "A superpower that has a free press is very different in nature from one that does not."

U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris delivers remarks at Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S. June 18, 2021. It will be Harris' first visit to the border since becoming vice president five months ago. "The Vice President's trip to Guatemala and Mexico earlier this year was about the root causes, and this border visit is about the effects," Harris' spokesperson, Symone Sanders, said. During the trip, Harris said she would visit the border in the near future but was focused on "tangible results" and "opposed to grand gestures." As such, they are unlikely to stop their criticism of Biden's policies, even if Harris visits the border.

Bender wrote Trump aide Stephen Miller and Gen. Mark Milley clashed as protests raged across the US. Milley told Miller to "shut the f--- up" after Miller said US cities were like war zones, the book said. Milley took issue with Miller's comments, Bender wrote, adding that Milley turned around in his seat, pointed his finger directly at Miller, and said: "Shut the f--- up, Stephen." Trump told his subordinates that he wanted to see law enforcement "getting physical" with protesters, Bender wrote, according to CNN. "That's how you're supposed to handle these people," Trump told top officials, according to Bender.

"It makes no sense," said Ross, 34, adding that no witnesses have stepped forward in the “broad daylight” murder. Such tributes have become a common sight in the poorer neighborhoods of Rochester, a city of 206,000 people in the northwestern part of the state. The per-capita murder rate climbed 30 percent in 2020 among 34 major cities surveyed by Richard Rosenfeld, a criminologist at the University of Missouri in St. Louis. Evans said the murder surge reflects rising problems with drug trafficking, criminal gangs and illegal firearms during the pandemic. The city’s police union, the Rochester Police Locust Club, said the department has only 12 investigators to pursue murder cases.

WASHINGTON — The Biden administration plans to evacuate at least some of the Afghans who worked with the U.S. military and who face the threat of retribution from the Taliban before the U.S. withdrawal's official completion date of Sept. 11, senior administration officials said Thursday. Asked about the fate of Afghans who worked as interpreters or in other jobs, Biden said: "We've already begun the process" of helping the Afghan partners. The administration is identifying Afghans who worked with the U.S. government to be relocated to a third country to allow the Afghans to "safely complete" the remainder of the visa application process, she said. The senior administration official left open the possibility that evacuations might have to be expanded. Advocates have accused the Biden administration of moving far too slowly to protect the tens of thousands of Afghans whose lives are in mortal danger because of their association with the U.S. and Western organizations.

The prosecution has asked that Chauvin be sentenced to 30 years.

There was a time when John McAfee was mentioned alongside the names of the biggest tech pioneers of the 1980s and ʼ90s, with a fortune to match. His eponymous company, McAfee Corp., would become a household name thanks to its Windows-focused antivirus software. "Although John McAfee founded the company, he has not been associated with our company in any capacity for over 25 years," a company spokesperson said in an email. Suddenly wealthy after selling his company, McAfee spent the next two decades relatively quiet. In the documentary "Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee," a former business partner accused McAfee of drugging and raping her in Belize.
