  + stars: | 2021-06-25 | by ( ) + 0.00   time to read: +6 min
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.

Rudy Giuliani was suspended from practicing law in New York over statements he made about the election on Thursday. His son Andrew Giuliani took to a parking lot to release a statement in defense of his father. The video was reminiscent of another Giuliani parking lot moment: Rudy's appearance at Four Seasons Total Landscaping. Andrew Giuliani, son of former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, had some things to say about his father's recent troubles — and a vaguely familiar place from which to say them. The statement was reminiscent of an infamous press conference given by Rudy from another remarkable parking lot.

Rudy Giuliani appeared on Newsmax Thursday to discuss the suspension of his New York legal license. He was it came because he was so effective at arguing for Trump's bogus election-fraud claims. Rudy Giuliani has claimed that the suspension of his license to practise law in New York was part of a plot to silence him because he was so effective at arguing former President Donald Trump's election-fraud claims. Giuliani appeared on the right-wing Newsmax network hours after an appelate court in New York suspended his law license on Thursday. In explaining the decision to suspend Giuliani's license, the New York court on Thursday cited his promotion of Trump's election-fraud conspiracy theories.

A New York appellate court on Thursday suspended Rudy Giuliani's law license after finding he made "demonstrably false and misleading" statements about last year's election while serving as former President Donald Trump's attorney. "These false statements were made to improperly bolster respondent’s narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client," the ruling continued. The panel examined several comments made by Giuliani, and the defenses he offered of them to the court. "It is long recognized that 'speech by an attorney is subject to greater regulation than speech by others.'" The panel also reviewed false claims Giuliani made about the number of mail-in ballots requested in Pennsylvania.

While the goods trade deficit widened last month, that was because of an increase in imports as businesses desperately try to keep up with robust demand. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits fell 7,000 to a seasonally adjusted 411,000 for the week ended June 19, the Labor Department said. STRONG GROWTHFederal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell told lawmakers on Tuesday that he believed the economy would see strong job creation in the fall. Strong demand and tight supply are forcing businesses to turn to imports, boosting the trade deficit.

President Joe Biden is nominating Cindy McCain to be the U.S. representative to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture, one of 17 nominations announced Wednesday that included major diplomatic and arts assignments. McCain, the widow of Arizona Sen. John McCain, broke with Republicans and endorsed Biden for president, making her a key surrogate for the Democrat after Donald Trump spent years criticizing her husband. McCain is the chair and director of the Hensley Beverage Company, a Phoenix-based distributor of beer, wine, spirits and nonalcoholic drinks. The president is also nominating Massachusetts state Rep. Claire Cronin to be ambassador to Ireland. Jack Markell, a former Delaware governor, is being nominated to represent the U.S. to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, personal attorney to U.S. President Donald Trump, speaks in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, November 7, 2020. A New York court on Thursday suspended Rudy Giuliani from practicing law in New York state due to making "false and misleading statements" about the election loss of former President Donald Trump, his client. It also comes as Giuliani is under criminal investigation by that same federal prosecutor's office in Manhattan in connection with his work in Ukraine. Giuliani and Trump since last November have made false claims about the legitimacy of the election of President Joe Biden, claiming that Trump was swindled out of a victory only by widespread ballot fraud in key swing states. In fact, the order added, "The public records submitted on this motion unequivocally show that respondent's statement is false.

Kevin McCarthy criticized the IRS for wasting taxpayer dollars on a poster promoting the child tax credit. In a now-deleted Facebook post on Wednesday, McCarthy posted a photo of a poster that college student Tobin Stone created promoting the child tax credit, which is a monthly credit given to families with children. McCarthy attributed the poster to the IRS, though, and criticized the agency for wasting taxpayer dollars on a "government handout." McCarthy has not yet publicly commented on mistakenly attributing the poster to the IRS, but some Democrats were quick to notice the minority leader's error. With regard to the child tax credit, Insider's Joseph Zeballos-Roig reported earlier this month that some centrist senators might stand in the way of a permanent expansion of the credit, which 41 Democratic senators had previously called for.

In the most significant legal decision involving education in decades, the Supreme Court on Wednesday declared that public school students typically retain broader free-speech protections when they are away from campus, rather than in school settings. The primary reason for celebrating stems from the simple fact that the Supreme Court declared victory for a high school student in a free-speech case at all. Since then, the court has issued three major decisions involving student speech. This trend of hostility to student speech proved so alarming that some perceptive commentators have asserted that the protection established in Tinker has, in effect, been eroded altogether. The opinion’s protection for off-campus speech is heavily qualified and studiously avoids articulating anything like a clear rule.

Rite Aid CEO Heyward Donigan told CNBC on Thursday she's "cautiously optimistic" the U.S. would avoid another round of strict Covid restrictions despite the presence of the delta variant. Shares of Rite Aid sank roughly 14% on Thursday, sending the company's stock market value under $1 billion, as Wall Street digested mixed first-quarter results and weaker earnings guidance. So as we look forward, we think we need to be very cautious and prudent in our guidance," said Donigan, who has been CEO of Pennsylvania-based Rite Aid since August 2019. Rite Aid's outlook is not factoring in potential Covid vaccine boosters or vaccinations for children under the age of 12, Donigan noted. The Food and Drug Administration cleared Pfizer's Covid vaccine for use in kids ages 12 to 15 a little more than a month ago.

REUTERS/Andrew KellyNEW YORK, June 24 (Reuters) - Rudy Giuliani's New York law license was suspended on Thursday, after a state appeals court found he had lied in arguing that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from his client, former U.S. President Donald Trump. Citing the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, the Appellate Division said Giuliani's eagerness to trumpet false claims of a rigged election could erode public confidence in the election process, a hallmark of American democracy, and the legal profession. The court also criticized Giuliani's unsubstantiated claims of voting by dead people, including the boxing heavyweight champion Joe Frazier, who died in 2011. He began representing Trump in April 2018 as federal Special Counsel Robert Mueller was probing Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

The CDC acknowledged Wednesday that mild heart inflammation may be a rare side effect of COVID-19 vaccination. COVID-19 is still a greater threat to the heart, though, which is why health experts recommend vaccination. Rare cases which merit delaying shot 2Public health leaders have high confidence the vaccines are safe, which is why they're recommending full COVID-19 vaccination, even for young men. Concerned parents: look out for these symptomsMost cases of myocarditis surface in the first five days after a COVID-19 shot is administered.

U.S. Democrats launch bill allowing existing nuclear plants tax credit

Kevin Dietsch/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoWASHINGTON, June 24 (Reuters) - Five Democrats in the U.S. Senate introduced a bill on Thursday that would allow some existing nuclear power plants to receive a tax credit equal to an incentive already given to operators of wind power turbines. The bill, led by Senator Ben Cardin, provides a production tax credit of $15 per megawatt hour for existing nuclear plant owners or operators in states such as New York, Illinois, and Pennsylvania which have deregulated power markets. Nuclear reactors are virtually emissions-free, but have been struggling to compete with power generation fueled by natural gas, and wind and solar power. The bill, if passed by the Senate and House, could help President Joe Biden, who has also supported a production tax credit for nuclear plants, in his goal to put the country on a path to decarbonize the power grid by 2035. Exelon has said it will close two nuclear power plants in Illinois in coming months if the state does not come through with subsidies.

WASHINGTON — The nation's public schools have no general power to punish students for what they say off campus, the Supreme Court said Wednesday. The decision did not protect all off-campus expression, but the court suggested the exceptions, to be worked out in future cases, would be limited. She used a vulgar four-letter verb to write, "f--- school f--- softball f--- cheer f--- everything." In 1969, the court said students and teachers do not "shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate." No matter where a student's expression originates, schools should be able to discipline students when a message is directed at the school and causes disruption, the district said.

“F— school f— softball f— cheer f— everything,” the 14-year-old, frustrated at the prospect of another year on the junior varsity team, wrote on her cellphone, posting a photo of herself and a friend extending middle fingers. The school then suspended Ms. Levy from the junior varsity team for the school year, saying she had violated various rules including prohibitions of foul language, unsportsmanlike conduct and disrespect of the school. After the school refused to reconsider the punishment, Ms. Levy and her parents went to court. Federal district and appeals courts agreed that the school violated her free-speech rights, but differed in their reasoning. The federal district judge said Ms. Levy’s exclamation simply couldn’t be considered disruptive of school, the standard the Supreme Court set for punishing student speech in a landmark case from 1969, Tinker v. Des Moines Independent School District.

CHICAGO (Reuters) - In 2018, Whirlpool Corp swung to a loss after a tariff-fueled rally in U.S. steel prices drove up its raw-materials costs. Whirlpool has raised prices by as much as 12% this year in various markets to compensate for increased raw-material costs. Both General Motors Co and Ford Motor Co have raised their profit outlook - a contrast from 2018 when higher steel prices hurt their earnings. The company is facing intense cost pressure, but customers have been willing to accept higher prices. The biodiesel engine maker is grappling with higher raw-material costs, but has been unable to fully pass them along to its customers.

More than 150 employees at a Houston hospital system who refused to get the Covid-19 vaccine have been fired or resigned after a judge dismissed an employee lawsuit over the vaccine requirement. A spokesperson for Houston Methodist hospital system said 153 employees either resigned in the two-week suspension period or were terminated on Tuesday. The hospital system’s decision in April to require the vaccine for workers made it the first major U.S. health care system to do so. The Houston Methodist employees who filed the lawsuit likened their situation to medical experiments performed on unwilling victims in Nazi concentration camps during World War II. Other hospital systems around the country, including in Washington, D.C., Indiana, Maryland, Pennsylvania and most recently New York, have followed Houston Methodist and have also gotten pushback.

WASHINGTON—The Supreme Court extended its protection of student speech to social media on Wednesday, by an 8-1 ruling that a Pennsylvania school district overstepped its authority by punishing a high-school cheerleader who used a vulgar word on Snapchat when she didn’t make the varsity cheerleading team. The court said there are some occasions when schools can reach beyond campus to regulate student speech, mentioning bullying and cheating as subject to discipline whether they occur in the classroom or in cyberspace. But the court has long held that even on campus, students retain First Amendment rights to speak on controversial matters so long as they don’t cause a substantial disruption. Beyond school grounds, administrators’ power to punish students diminishes further still, Justice Stephen Breyer wrote for the court. The case stems from a May 2017 Snapchat post that Brandi Levy, then a high-school sophomore in Mahanoy City, Pa., sent to some 250 followers after failing to make the varsity cheerleading squad.
