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.

Uttering sacred American phrases in Spanish during the inauguration provided real cultural inclusion and recognition. But the deeper history behind J.Lo’s performance complicates the simple story of inclusionary progress and celebration. But “God Bless America” itself is more complicated than it might appear, with a past that reveals much about the best and worst sides of American history. APIn January 1941, Berlin performed the song at the third inauguration of Franklin D. Roosevelt. In his inaugural speech, Biden spoke of American history as “a constant struggle between the American ideal that we’re all created equal, and the harsh, ugly reality that racism, nativism, fear, demonization have long torn us apart.”He stressed, “The battle is perennial and victory is never assured.”The history behind Lopez’s performance is not easy or straightforward.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - TC Energy Corp will eliminate more than 1,000 construction jobs in coming weeks and halt work on the Keystone XL oil pipeline after U.S. President Joe Biden revoked the project’s presidential permit, the company said in an email to employees.

TC Energy shares were last up 1.9% on the Toronto Stock Exchange at C$56.98, erasing the losses sustained earlier this week when news of the cancellation broke. It’s more a confirmation of what most assumed after the election,” said a source at TC Energy.

Forgoing statewide mask mandates, social distancing efforts and touting personal responsibility is making a bad situation worse. Conservative Governors that have yet to enact statewide mandates 10 months into the pandemic are failing their constituents. Kim Reynolds told her constituents for months to "step up and take personal responsibility." COVID-19 decreased in 24 counties with mask mandates but continued to increase in 81 counties without mask mandates. Conservative governors can still enact statewide mask mandates and do what they were elected to do: lead by example and protect their constituents.

In California, a small group of protestors got past a police barrier and began chanting outside the heavily guarded and fenced-off state Capitol in Sacramento.

In June 2019, a "possible militia threat" by right-wingers opposed to a climate change bill forced the closing of the Oregon state Capitol.

Oklahoma judge orders 'Tiger King' zoo to turn over big cats

A federal judge in Oklahoma has ordered the new owners of an Oklahoma zoo featured in Netflix’s “Tiger King” documentary to turn over all the lion and tiger cubs in their possession, along with the animals’ mothers, to the federal government. U.S. District Judge John F. Heil III issued the order last week in the case against Jeffrey and Lauren Lowe and the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park based on claimed violations of the Endangered Species Act and the Animal Welfare Act. Jeffrey Lowe’s attorney, Daniel Card of Oklahoma City, didn’t immediately respond to a message seeking comment. The Lowes took over operations of the zoo, which was previously run by Joseph Maldonado-Passage — also known as Joe Exotic — and featured in Netflix’s “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness.”Maldonado-Passage is serving a 22-year sentence in a Fort Worth, Texas, federal prison for his conviction on charges that he participated in a murder-for-hire plot and violated federal wildlife laws. Maldonado-Passage has formally requested a pardon from outgoing President Donald Trump.

That base of support remains large - another likely legacy of the Trump era. White House spokesman Judd Deere rejected the notion that Trump’s legacy lay in tatters. Trump’s base remains a potent electoral force. Bob Corker, a former Republican senator from Tennessee, said Trump had been a “consequential president” in terms of enacting many policies Republicans wanted.

DEA / M. BORCHI | De Agostini | Getty ImagesStates have tried clawing back unemployment benefits from thousands of people during the Covid pandemic. Waiving PUA overpaymentsThe $900 billion federal relief package passed last month gives states the power to waive these overpayments, made through the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program, in certain cases. But the law doesn't require states to offer this safety valve — leading to concern that some may choose not to. Most states do waive overpayments made through their traditional unemployment insurance programs. The state legislature would need to amend state law to do so, she said.

Tennessee, Texas, and Florida saw the arrival of more one-way U-Haul trucks than any other states in 2020. U-Haul data shows that more people moved to Tennessee than any other state last year amid the coronavirus pandemic. And as a result, Texas and Florida were bumped down to second and third place, respectively. One-way U-Haul users headed to Tennessee increased 12% year-over-year, while trucks leaving increased 9%, according to U-Haul. After the coronavirus-induced national emergency was called in March, the 30 most occupied cities in the US had more U-Haul trucks departing than arriving for the following three months.

Another significant portion of the group's membership is retired military and law enforcement personnel.

Founded in 2011 by former Arizona sheriff Richard Mack, the group promotes the notion — contrary to the Constitution — that the federal government authorities should be subordinated to local law enforcement.

Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) leaves the U.S. Capitol after voting in Washington, U.S., May 14, 2020. The Justice Department will not criminally charge Sen. Richard Burr in connection with stock trades that the North Carolina Republican executed on the heels of being briefed about Covid-19 last year, shortly before the coronavirus pandemic rocked the U.S. economy. Only Burr was the subject of a sustained criminal investigation by DOJ for his stock trades. On Feb. 13 last year, Burr unloaded stock shares worth $630,000 to $1.7 million, with 33 individual trades made on that single day. ProPublica reported that on the day Burr sold his stocks, his brother-in-law Gerald Fauth himself sold tens of thousands of dollars worth of stock.

By 1996, roughly a year after the carnage in Oklahoma, Mr. Clinton signed the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act (A.E.D.P.A.) The law was a bipartisan affair expedited by Republican interest in stifling challenges to the death penalty, and inflamed by concern that Mr. McVeigh would evade capital punishment at trial. Habeas corpus entitles detainees convicted in state courts to appeal to federal courts if they believe their rights were violated at trial or during sentencing. During the 1960s, the Supreme Court expanded those rights — one reason Republicans were so eager to limit them in the A.E.D.P.A. It made it harder for appellants to present facts in federal court that had not been presented in state courts — the provision that doomed Mr. Pruett.

In at least 12 states right now,efforts are afoot that include actually criminalizing health care for transgender youth (as in, send doctors to prison for following medical treatment protocols to help trans youth) as well as banning all transgender young people from participating in age-appropriate athletic programs. These bills are just another opportunity to repeat (and, they hope, enact into law) myths about trans women and girls. Last year, Idaho, in fact, passed a wholesale ban on transgender women and girls participating in women’s sports. Meanwhile, Alabama, Missouri, Texas, Mississippi, Montana, Indiana, New Hampshire and Utah — so far — have also introduced bills that would criminalize or otherwise ban gender-affirming care for transgender youth. Given this, these anti-science bills cannot be understood as motivated by concerns about children or their ability to consent to medical treatment.

Since Trump appears unwilling to stop them, the responsibility falls to the Republican state legislators who have reliably embraced and enabled Trump for the last four years. In Michigan, armed protesters occupied the state Capitol, and a group of terrorists plotted to kidnap and possibly kill Democratic Gov. Staying silent as extremists plan their attacks on capitols cannot be an option for Republican state lawmakers any longer.

A Republican lawmaker in Montana has introduced a pair of bills targeting transgender youth. Montana State LegislatureFuller told Montana Public Radio that, as a former women’s soccer coach, he believes allowing transgender girls to play on women’s teams is unfair. Readings for both Montana bills were rescheduled from Wednesday to Jan. 20 to allow for public comment. Republicans, who currently control both chambers of the Montana state Legislature, will have until April to pass the measure this legislative session. “Make no mistake: these bills target and attack trans youth and will cause them serious and lasting harm,” ACLU of Montana Executive Director Caitlin Borgmann said in a statement.

Walgreens did not say how many long-term care residents in Mississippi the company had vaccinated. For long-term care residents and staff in communities that have struggled to bring the virus under control, the consequences could be dire. “I can’t think of anything more heartbreaking than that.”In Mississippi, residents of long-term care facilities have accounted for more than a third of those dying from Covid-19.

The two pharmacies are working with about 40% of the state’s facilities. Meanwhile, seniors at some long-term care facilities - who account for about 1% of the U.S. population but 40% of COVID-19 deaths and were supposed to be at the front of the line - continue to wait. Some 75,000 long-term care facilities signed up to receive vaccines from CVS Health Corp and Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc under the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Pharmacy Partnership Program.

Federal law enforcement already has the tools necessary to investigate and prosecute white supremacist violence. Law enforcement agencies choose not to use them. Already in response to the attack on the Capitol, President-elect Joe Biden and some members of Congress are joining calls for new domestic terrorism legislation that would give even greater power to law enforcement. What leaders virtually never acknowledge is that federal law enforcement already has the tools necessary to investigate and prosecute white supremacist violence. Any proposals to create new domestic terrorism crimes or give law enforcement more power must be off the table.
