WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump’s last-minute push to allow drilling in a pristine part of Alaska’s Arctic will be an early target for the next administration, according to Senator Tom Udall, a contender to lead the Interior Department under Joe Biden. That puts the administration on a timeline that could bring a lease auction by mid-January, only days before Biden takes office. A top issue for the next Interior secretary will be implementing Biden’s pledge to ban new oil and gas leasing on federal lands. The state's Democratic governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham - a co-chair of the Biden transition team, told Reuters last year she would request a waiver exempting the state from a potential drilling ban here. As part of that plan, the nation's leasing program would be included in a "top-to-bottom review of public lands," Udall said.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia said on Monday it had detained a police colonel from the southern region of Dagestan and charged him with offences including terrorism after accusing him of aiding a suicide bomber in a 2010 attack on the Moscow metro. The country’s Investigative Committee, the body that probes major crimes, said it had detained Gazi Isayev, an Interior Ministry official overseeing the Kizlyarsky district of Dagestan as part of a investigation into the attack that killed 39 people and injured more than 100 others. It said that Isayev had driven a female suicide bomber, clad in an explosive belt, to a bus station near the town of Kizlyar, from where she would travel some 1,470 km (910 miles) north to carry out the attack. The Investigative Committee also said Isayev had been a member of the Imarat Kavkaz terrorist group -- also known as Caucasus Emirate -- and that he had passed information on police activity and special operations to the organisation.

WASHINGTON — Democratic senators are calling on President-elect Joe Biden to use executive power to advance goals such as tackling climate change, relieving student debt and creating a more progressive immigration system. "I think President Biden has significant executive power. "From Treasury to State to Interior (departments) and the financial regulators, climate action and climate risk management has to be infused into literally everything," he said. Even if Democrats capture both Georgia seats and take control of the Senate, McConnell would retain the power to filibuster legislation and force a 60-vote threshold. Jamal Brown, a spokesman for Biden's transition team, said his agenda will include executive power.

The latest version of the IT Security Law follows months of wrangling in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition, which has been split over how to craft a political mechanism for judging whether a vendor can be trusted. An Interior Ministry spokesman said the bill was presented to other departments on Thursday. “The draft implements the results of previous discussions with the ministries and submits new compromise proposals,” the spokesman said in response to a request for comment from Reuters.

Slideshow ( 5 images )LAS PALMAS, Spain (Reuters) - The Spanish government promised on Friday to set up camps and shelters for 7,000 people in the Canary Islands, to manage a surge in migrant arrivals that has overwhelmed local authorities and left thousands sleeping in the open. “We face a human tragedy and no one can or should look the other way,” Defense Minister Margarita Robles told state broadcaster RTVE. Her ministry has already turned over an old military warehouse for use as a camp for 800 people that opened this month. Municipalities, the military and even private companies will temporarily hand over property for the camps and shelters for the 7,000 migrants, Escriva said. Almost 17,000 people have reached the Canary Islands so far this year, more than 10 times last year’s total, after making the dangerous Atlantic crossing from north Africa.

Since the 1970s, descendants of Creek Freedmen like Perryman-Lenzy have tried to re-enroll and been denied.

A Push Emerges for the First Native American Interior Secretary

WASHINGTON — A coalition of Democrats, Native Americans and liberal activists is urging President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. to nominate one of Congress’s first Native American women to head the Interior Department, putting an American Indian in control of vast swaths of the continent and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The nomination of Representative Deb Haaland, Democrat of New Mexico, as Interior secretary would have undeniable symbolic power. Ms Haaland and Sharice Davids of Kansas made history in 2018 as the first two Native American women elected to Congress, and Ms. Haaland would do so again as the first Native American cabinet secretary. But her lack of policy experience worries some Biden advisers, who have suggested another Native American candidate: Michael L. Connor, a deputy Interior secretary in the Obama administration, whose experience is unquestioned, even if he lacks the star power of Ms. Haaland. Ms. Haaland is a citizen of the Laguna Pueblo, and Mr. Connor is from the Taos Pueblo, sovereign nations near Albuquerque and Taos that are among the country’s 574 federally recognized tribes.

MECKHE, Senegal (Reuters) - Seven neighbours from a village in western Senegal boarded a fishing boat crammed with migrants just after midnight on Oct. 26. Two of them are now missing, presumed dead, after the boat carrying dozens of people capsized in a collision with the Senegalese coastguard. Unlike the Mediterranean Sea route from Libya to southern Europe, the wooden fishing boats on the choppy Atlantic do not carry satellite phones, and people cannot make distress calls. Everything has become more expensive.”Soon after leaving, the Senegalese coastguard ordered the boat to stop, said four survivors, but the captain sped up. Eventually, the coastguard rammed the fishing boat, causing it to capsize, throwing about 80 passengers into the water, the survivors said.

Anyone who engages in certain transactions with these individuals and entities runs the risk of being hit with U.S. sanctions. The Treasury Department also imposed sanctions on Iranian Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi and accused his ministry of playing a role in serious human rights abuses against Iranians, including during last year’s protests.

Final U.S. offshore oil auction under Trump will test industry demand

The outcome of the auction will reveal the level of demand for new leases from and industry facing regulatory uncertainty, soft prices, and a long stretch of weak returns. The Trump administration’s most recent lease auction was in March, when the coronavirus outbreak was just beginning to depress world demand for fuel and crush prices, and was the weakest of any U.S. offshore auction since 2016. President Donald Trump has sought to boost offshore drilling as part of his “energy dominance” agenda to maximize fossil fuel production. But the U.S. offshore drilling industry has been hard hit this year by not only by the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic but a series of Atlantic storms that forced companies to halt production and evacuate workers. The agency is also offering a longer, 10-year lease term for all leases in water depths of 800 meters or deeper.

This law also permanently and fully finances the Land and Water Conservation Fund, founded during Lyndon Johnson’s administration in 1964, at $900 million per year. The Conservation Fund has supported 40,000 projects assisting parks, coastlines, monuments, deserts, forests, wetlands and wildlife in every county in the United States. It is subsidized not by taxpayers but primarily by fossil fuel companies engaged in offshore oil and gas drilling. But before the Outdoors Act, it rarely received what it was owed, partly because senators like Mr. Daines voted against it.

The area is thought to overlie reserves containing billions of gallons of oil. The environmental impact statement for the leasing plan, which was approved by the Interior Department in August, recommended that all tracts should be made available. Regulations call for the winning bids to be reviewed by the Bureau of Land Management to determine, among other things, the bidders’ capabilities for undertaking oil and gas exploration on the land. The winning bids would also be forwarded to the Justice Department to review any possible antitrust issues. Even if the Justice Department review found no antitrust concerns, the Bureau of Land Management could reject the leases, he said.

Many of Biden's climate policies would be blocked by Senate Republicans, who typically oppose climate legislation. But his climate legislation will face potentially enormous constraint if Democrats don't win control of the U.S. Senate.
