A group of Senate Democrats filed an ethics complaint against Republican Sens. Both Hawley and Cruz have denied any wrongdoing and maintain they were trying to protect the integrity of the election. This latest effort is a flagrant abuse of the Senate ethics process and a flagrant attempt to exact partisan revenge," Hawley said in a statement. Hawley and Cruz and the organizers of the rally remains to be investigated. Hawley and Cruz to object to the electors, Reps. Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar, and Mo Brooks, have been identified as alleged co-architects of the rally.

A video viewed over 3.7 million times on Twitter allegedly shows a military band playing ‘Hit the Road Jack’ outside the White House, ahead of President Donald Trump’s departure. The Military Band right outside the White House — “Hit The Road Jack”...” and “Military Marching Band playing “Hit the Road Jack” in front of the White House loud enough for Trump to hear it is the illest.”But the original footage, tweeted by CNN anchor Jim Acosta on Jan. 18, 2021 here shows that the band was actually playing a different song. His caption reads: “Preps for Biden inaugural... you can hear the band playing on WH grounds”. The audio that was digitally included resembles the recording of “Hit the Road Jack” by the Ohio State University Marching Band (exact moment can be heard youtu.be/jOyKQYzm6VY?t=78 ). Footage of a military band practicing near the White House prior to President Joe Biden’s inauguration, has been digitally altered to include the song “Hit the Road Jack”.

A Columbus, Ohio, vaccine distributor has been suspended after authorities said the company mishandled 890 doses of Moderna's Covid-19 vaccine. In a press release Wednesday, the Ohio Department of Health said the provider, SpecialtyRx, received 1,500 vaccine doses to administer to residents of eight long-term care facilities before Jan. 1. "The first doses of the Moderna vaccine that were administered to the residents and staff of the long-term care facilities were viable," the health department said. "For the second dose, the long term care facilities will have to coordinate with another provider which will likely be the local health department." According to a count by NBC News, Ohio has recorded 842,433 coronavirus cases since the start of the pandemic.

Over the years, first look pictures have become a wedding day tradition, allowing couples to capture their partners' excitement when they first see each other all dressed up for the ceremony. For one Texas couple, that first look took a different turn when comedian Dave Chappelle photobombed their pictures as they were having their special moment on the patio of The Line Hotel in Austin. Anna SzczekutowiczChappelle surprised the couple and then posed for their pictures as a way to add to their special day. Both the groom and photographer had searched for a private spot where they could capture their special moment. It all happened so fast, but we could not stop talking about it throughout the day," Szczekutowicz said.

The ongoing exodus of Silicon Valley is a warning sign for the future of the state, former Cisco CEO John Chambers told CNBC on Thursday. "You're seeing many companies thinking about leaving and, even worse, none of my start-ups are thinking about coming to California." Founders, executives and tech employees of all ranks, who are normally based in Silicon Valley, have been moving out of the area in an exodus sparked by the Covid-19 pandemic. Oracle, one of Silicon Valley's older success stories, changed its corporate headquarters from Redwood City, California to Austin, Texas. The Silicon Valley exodus could bode well for other states across the United States that can get in on the wealth, Chambers said.

The Oath Keeper case could be a model moving forward for more complicated cases. Mr. Caldwell said he intended to fight the charges at a hearing this week. Mr. Crowl and Ms. Watkins have not yet appeared in court to respond to the complaint. Since Mr. Caldwell had no obvious connection to the others, agents followed up the lead with a more old-fashioned method. The Capitol investigation is, by all accounts, an enormous undertaking, drawing on the efforts of hundreds of agents and prosecutors from across the country.

Two aspects of Biden's appeal made it uniquely authentic to him: context and consistency. The speech was elegantly humble in delivering a single, inoffensive thought into the collective conscience of the nation: Biden wants unity. Biden's message Wednesday, delivered in his plain-spoken style, tracked with his repeated election-year pledge to view political opponents as friends who disagree. His backdrop — literally, as he so often says — was the same West Front of the Capitol that was filled two weeks ago by rioters who sought to stop Congress from sealing his election. Whatever the fate of his presidency, Biden started off with a basic premise about what it means for the problems afflicting the country.

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden was elected on a promise to restore normality to the White House, but his presidency began Wednesday with a most unusual swearing-in, with most of the pomp stripped away by the necessity of circumstance.

And certainly not his transition to power, which faced unprecedented opposition from the outgoing president, who snubbed the ceremony.

REUTERS/Lisa Baertlein/File Photo(Reuters) - U.S. supermarket chain Kroger Co said on Wednesday it had blocked Indiana Oath Keepers, a far-right militia group, from receiving donations collected from customers after drawing flak from a number of social media users. Investigators of the U.S. Capitol breach on Jan. 6 accused members of Oath Keepers of organizing the riot that left five people dead. It said Oath Keepers was an IRS-approved non-profit organization and was receiving donations through its customer-directed program in which thousands of groups participate. “We were dismayed to learn yesterday (Tuesday) that this group was part of the Community Rewards program,” Kroger said.

As vice president, Mr. Biden oversaw the implementation of the 2009 stimulus bill and later headed the administration’s cancer moonshot program. Mr. Biden fell flat in the first nominating contests, finishing in fourth place in Iowa and fifth place in New Hampshire. Despite his early difficulties in two overwhelmingly white states, Mr. Biden counted on receiving strong support from Black voters in later contests.

Record-low mortgage rates may now be a headline of the past. That pulled total weekly mortgage application volume down 1.9% last week, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association's seasonally adjusted index. "After a post-holiday surge of refinances, higher rates chipped away at refinance demand." Demand from homebuyers, however, increased despite the higher rates. Mortgage rates, however, started the week flat, as traders are likely awaiting the first major economic policy announcements before making a move.

A quarter of chief executives are considering moving their business operations to a cheaper location, a new poll said. States like Texas and Florida have become viable business hubs, as employers seek to flee cities with high costs of living. Remote work has diminished the importance of living in expensive hubs like San Francisco and New York City. In West Monroe's Quarterly Executive Poll, business owners cited high cost of living and taxes as their primary reasons for relocating their businesses. Most executives were considering moving their business operations to Texas, Florida, or Ohio -- states generally known for their low costs of living and lower taxes.

An Old Role With a New Gender: Emhoff Becomes the First Second Gentleman

But they and their partners appeared at least outwardly friendly in a belated interaction on the steps of the Capitol, before Ms. Harris and Mr. Emhoff waved goodbye to the Pences. Although the details of what Mr. Emhoff might do with the platform are unclear — he has discussed focusing on “access to justice” — his presence indicates slowly shifting gender roles in politics and beyond. But that shift leaves Mr. Emhoff with a responsibility to help define the role for men who come after him and alter traditional perceptions of the role of a high-profile spouse. Ms. Harris and Mr. Emhoff married in 2014, while Ms. Harris was the attorney general of California. Mr. Emhoff, an entertainment lawyer, became an eager surrogate for his wife on the campaign trail.

A U.S. soldier was arrested Tuesday for allegedly saying he wanted to help ISIS strike the 9/11 Memorial in New York City and attempting to help ISIS to target U.S. soldiers in the Middle East, according to senior law enforcement officials. He was arrested on charges of attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and attempting to murder U.S. military service members. In October, he started talking with an undercover FBI agent posing as an ISIS supporter in contact with ISIS fighters in the Middle East. He also handed over U.S. Army training material and "guidance about military combat tactics, for use by ISIS," the statement said. In December of 2020, Bridges started supplying the agent with instructions for ISIS fighters to attack U.S. forces in the Middle East.

Other affiliates of the Oath Keepers group who were charged include Jessica Watkins, 38, of Champaign County, Ohio, who the criminal complaint said referred to herself on her Parler account as the “C.O. (commanding officer) of the Ohio State Regular Militia,” Donovan Ray Crowl, also of Ohio, and Jon Schaffer, a guitarist for the Indiana heavy metal band Iced Earth who was photographed during the riot wearing an Oath Keepers cap.

Caldwell, Watkins and Crowl are accused of conspiring against the United States and conspiring to prevent the government from discharging its duties, among other offenses. A federal prosecutor told a judge presiding over Caldwell’s initial court appearance on Tuesday it was “likely” additional charges could be filed as the investigation continues, including rioting and seditious conspiracy. “The weight of the evidence here is very much strong,” said Christopher Kavanaugh, the prosecutor. Asked by a federal judge if she understood the charges against her, Watkins said: “I understand what you said. Another federal prosecutor on Tuesday revealed the government expected to file new charges against Riley Williams, who is accused of stealing a laptop from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office during the siege.

American Airlines' regional carrier PSA to resume new pilot hiring this year
  + stars: | 2021-01-19 | by ( Tracy Rucinski | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +2 min
REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque/File Photo(Reuters) - American Airlines’ wholly-owned regional subsidiary PSA Airlines plans to resume new pilot hiring this year, according to a memo seen by Reuters, a positive sign for an industry that was ravaged last year by the coronavirus pandemic. After years of heavy recruitment to address potential pilot shortages in an industry that was growing before the pandemic, PSA and other airlines were forced to freeze new hiring last year and furlough thousands of employees. American Airlines said on Tuesday the company and its three subsidiaries, including PSA, had already received half of the total $3.087 billion in aid allotted to American under the government program, which covers employee salaries and protects jobs through March. Major airlines like American rely on regional carriers, which have a cheaper workforce, to operate a large share of their domestic networks. Over time, pilots at regional carriers work their way up to higher-paying jobs at the majors.

Postal Service network plummeted to the lowest levels in years, with only about 64 percent of first-class mail delivered on time around Christmas. The Postal Service delivered more than 135 million ballots and more than 1.1 billion holiday packages. All of this also followed an election when the Postal Service went to great lengths to prioritize millions of mailballots. And in December, Michael Plunkett, president of the Association for Postal Commerce, says he believes the Postal Service then prioritized packages over mail.
