A top Republican in Arizona refuted President Donald Trump’s meritless attempts to overturn the election results there in a sharply-worded statement Friday while also joining other Republicans in calling for an election audit of its largest county. The president’s legal team, which includes former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, has claimed in its sputtering legal fight that widespread voter fraud in Arizona and other states is the reason Trump lost the election. "I voted for President Trump and worked hard to reelect him. Doug Ducey, a Republican and close ally of Trump, found himself in the president's crosshairs on Monday when he signed off on the state's election certification. Trump’s legal team has been mocked and excoriated for its allegations of fraud without offering solid proof.

California certified its presidential election Friday and appointed 55 electors pledged to vote for Democrat Joe Biden, officially handing him the Electoral College majority needed to win the White House. There have been no suggestions that any of Biden's pledged electors would contemplate not voting for him. Results of the Electoral College vote are due to be received, and typically approved, by Congress on Jan. 6. Trump has fruitlessly tried to stop those states from certifying Biden as the winner and appointing electors for the former vice president. If they don't, the electors appointed by the states' governors — all pledged to Biden in these cases — must be used.

FILE PHOTO: U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is sworn in as his wife Jill watches during the inauguration ceremony for President Barack Obama in Washington January 20, 2009. (Reuters) - Setting a sharp contrast with President Donald Trump, whose administration began with a fight over the size of his inaugural crowds, President-elect Joe Biden said on Friday he plans a scaled-back event for safety’s sake during the pandemic. “My guess is there probably will not be a gigantic inaugural parade down Pennsylvania Avenue. Democracy has functioned.”The ceremony typically begins with the outgoing president and the president-elect riding together from the White House to the Capitol. After the new president is sworn in, he rides back along Pennsylvania Avenue to assume his new duties while the former president departs, typically by helicopter.

Philadelphia is demanding that Joe Biden's campaign pay up more than $15,500 after a campaign event in November left the city cleaning up a water-logged FDR Park. Joe Biden's campaign owes Philadelphia more than $15,500 and the city wants its money ASAP, according to interviews and documents Insider has obtained. The rainy drive-in campaign event at FDR Park on November 01, 2020 left a water-logged muddy mess that the city had to clean up. Philadelphia City Hall has already raised taxes, cut some services, and laid off hundreds of government workers to balance its books. Philadelphia, meanwhile, is hoping that Biden's team will pay up faster than Democrat Hillary Clinton, who conducted a campaign event near Philadelphia City Hall in 2016.

The Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee, his two joint fundraising committees and the president's leadership committee, Save America, raised over $200 million since Election Day. Since Election Day on Nov. 3, the Trump campaign has initiated dozens of legal fights in states where Biden has been deemed the winner, including in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Georgia. The Trump campaign requested a partial recount in Wisconsin, for which it paid $3 million. Representatives for the Trump campaign did not respond to requests for comment. Since mid-October, records show no sign of the Perlmutters spending in the latter stages of the campaign to help Trump.

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani says Republican legislators failed America

Rudy Giuliani, personal lawyer of US President Donald Trump, looks on during an appearance before the Michigan House Oversight Committee in Lansing, Michigan on December 2, 2020. - The president's attorneys, led by Rudy Giuliani, have made numerous allegations of election fraud. President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani blasted Republican state lawmakers in Pennsylvania on Friday, saying they "let down America," as the Trump campaign effort to reverse Joe Biden's national presidential election win seemed headed for failure. The Democratic former vice president Biden won the Keystone State's popular vote, which entitles him to all 20 Electoral College votes from the state. And legal experts give Trump little hope of eking out an electoral victory through court action.

Former Trump 2016 campaign officials Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie are among the 11 new members. WASHINGTON — Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller dismissed nine Defense Business Board members and replaced them with 11 new appointments on Friday, the latest shakeup in the Pentagon aimed at installing Trump loyalists. "However, board members receive reimbursement of travel and per diem during dates of travel for board business," the official added. Last month, the Pentagon elevated three Trump loyalists to powerful positions a day after the sudden termination of Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. Replacing Jen Stewart, the chief of staff to the Defense secretary, is Kash Patel, a member of the National Security Council.

FILE PHOTO: A shopper who refused to wear a mask is seen leaving a Walmart store in Bradford, Pennsylvania, U.S. July 20, 2020. REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/File Photo(Reuters) - Walmart Inc said on Thursday it would spend more than $700 million on bonuses as the retailer compensates its U.S. employees for helping meet a surge in demand for essential goods during the COVID-19 crisis. The company, like many supermarket chains, was pushed to hire hundreds of thousands of new hourly workers during the pandemic, incurring billions of dollars in costs to keep stores operating safely. Walmart, which is also the largest employer in the United States, said the additional spending brings the total 2020 quarterly and special bonuses to more than $2.8 billion. The latest bonus announcement includes $319 million in quarterly bonuses paid in November and about $388 million in special cash bonuses to be paid to full-time and part-time associates later this month.

REUTERS/Bryan Woolston/File PhotoThe weekly unemployment claims report from the Labor Department on Thursday included the Thanksgiving holiday, which could have impacted the model the government uses to strip seasonal fluctuations from the data. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits decreased 75,000 to a seasonally adjusted 712,000 for the week ended Nov. 28, the Labor Department said on Thursday. Unemployment claims hit a record 6.867 million in March and have been stuck above their 665,000 peak during the 2007-2009 Great Recession. About 13.6 million people are due to lose government-funded unemployment benefits a day after Christmas. A record 4.569 million workers filed for extended unemployment benefits in the week ending Nov. 14, up 59,732 from the prior week.

Senate Confirms Fed Economist Christopher Waller to Board Seat

The Senate confirmed one of President Trump’s picks Thursday to a vacancy on the Federal Reserve’s board of governors. He has attended meetings of the rate-setting Federal Open Market Committee this year in his capacity at the St. Louis Fed. Mr. Waller’s party-line confirmation reflected increased partisan tensions over the Fed. Mr. Waller’s confirmation was secured with fewer votes for any Fed governor since at least 1980. Party-line votes for Fed board positions hadn’t previously occurred, reflecting the central bank’s normally apolitical nature.

The AT&T -owned studio said it would release its entire 2021 slate of theatrical films simultaneously in theaters and on its HBO Max streaming service, the most drastic step yet taken by a major studio as the coronavirus pandemic continued to move Hollywood’s focus away from movie theaters and toward in-house streaming services. The strategy covers all 17 movies scheduled for release by the studio next year, including big-budget films such as the science-fiction adaptation “Dune” and a new installment in the “Matrix” franchise. HBO Max will host the movies for only their first month of theatrical release before the films follow their usual distribution pattern. The reorientation was accelerated by a pandemic that has closed most movie theaters and all but eliminated whatever leverage their owners once had. AMC Chief Executive Adam Aron said he signed on to accept simultaneous streaming and theater release for “one film only, ‘Wonder Woman 1984,’ ” at Christmas.

A meteor crashed through the Earth’s atmosphere over New York state Wednesday, triggering a thunderous boom and a spectacular flash over Lake Ontario, officials said. As the meteor broke into pieces at an altitude of 22 miles between Rochester and Syracuse, Cooke said, it created a sonic boom reportedly heard across New York. As it broke apart, the meteor produced a brilliant flash over Lake Ontario, Cooke said. Robert Lunsford, of the American Meteor Society, said it was possible the meteor could have been seen over a broad area. “To have something so close to a major city, that's pretty rare,” Lunsford said, adding that most meteors just “drop in the water.”

Reinstating the expired $600 weekly jobless benefit alone could save or create 3.3 million jobs, the report finds, and boost personal income by more than $290 billion over the next year. Without this supplement, the average worker received $318 per week in unemployment benefits in October, according to the Labor Department. Two more CARES Act provisions, Pandemic Unemployment Assistance and Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation, extend jobless benefits to those who traditionally don't qualify, such as the self-employed and gig workers, as well as those who've used up the traditional 26 weeks of state-provided benefits. Following the aftermath of the Great Recession, long-term unemployment exceeded 40% of total unemployment for three years. President-elect Joe Biden has previously said he will work with Congress to extend the extra $600 per week in federal unemployment benefits that expired at the end of July for "however long this crisis lasts."

The Trump campaign provided the name of one federal case in which it said Ms. Ellis had participated, in 2012, when she was a year out of law school. Ms. Ellis is a natural in her newly prominent role. The partnership was short-lived, Ms. Stout said, because their client fired Ms. Ellis, deeming her not up to the job. “She just didn’t have the legal chops,” added Ms. Stout, who ultimately won the case on her own. “After that, Jenna decided that I had stolen the case from her.”The president’s legal efforts to overturn the election have slowly petered out.

Big oil companies like Exxon and Shell are known for producing fuels like gasoline, but they're also among the largest chemical makers in the world. As oil companies eye a future with fewer gas-powered cars, they'll increasingly rely on their petrochemical divisions to stay afloat. But there's a large and growing part of Big Oil that's less visible to the public: petrochemicals. A future with fewer gas-powered cars only makes chemicals more appealing to oil companies looking to keep growing. According to an NPR investigation, big oil companies have, for years, misled the public into thinking that plastic waste could and would be recyclable.

Public health officials hope to vaccinate as many people as possible to turn the tide of the coronavirus pandemic once a vaccine becomes available — even those who have already recovered from Covid-19. Doctors and infectious disease experts agree that most people should get vaccinated, even if they may have natural protective immunity. Healthy adults over age 50 are still advised to get the shingles vaccine even if they have had chickenpox or shingles before. "I did it because I wanted the extra immunity to protect me against a shingles relapse later in life," Thomas said of his recent decision to get the shingles vaccine. "We don't really understand the long-haul situation, so trying to predict how a vaccine will perform here is difficult."
