The medical license of an Oregon doctor who refused to wear a face mask despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has been revoked weeks after a video surfaced of him dismissing Covid-19 as a "common cold." Less than a month later, on Dec. 3, the Oregon Medical Board issued an emergency suspension after finding that LaTulippe "engaged in unprofessional conduct or dishonorable conduct," online records show. The medical board also found that LaTulippe and his staff refused to wear masks in the clinic and urged patients to remove their own masks. Medical board investigators who visited LaTulippe said there were no screening procedures upon entering the premises and no hand sanitizer was available in the waiting area. The suspension prevents LaTulippe, who was licensed in 2000, from practicing medicine anywhere in Oregon.

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.

WASHINGTON — Sen. Bernie Sanders said Friday he opposes the emerging bipartisan deal on coronavirus relief, objecting to giving "legal immunity to corporations" and the exclusion of a new round of $1,200 direct payments. While many lawmakers in both parties have expressed optimism and support for the emerging deal, Sanders' statement indicates progressive resistance. Hours earlier, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., expressed some similar concerns in an interview with NBC News but remained open to voting for a package. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and McConnell spoke this week and expressed optimism about reaching a Covid aid deal and combining it into government funding legislation.

ATLANTA — Former President Barack Obama and Vice President Mike Pence will hold dueling rallies courting Georgia voters on Friday, seeking to drum up support in the battle for control of the Senate. Obama is set to join 2018 gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams and the two Democratic Senate candidates, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, for a virtual rally Friday afternoon. President Donald Trump will hold a rally on Saturday in Valdosta with the two Republicans in the runoff, which is about a month away. If Republicans win just one of the Georgia seats, then the GOP will retain control of the chamber. Pence appeared earlier Friday alongside Perdue and Loeffler at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.

WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Friday that there is "momentum" on Capitol Hill to reach a deal on coronavirus relief, further optimism that legislation could be approved before the end of the year. The deal would provide for augmented unemployment payments through March but would not send another round of checks to the nation. That means lawmakers negotiating another round of aid are working on a tight deadline after months of deadlocked negotiations. Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., voiced their support for a $908 billion bipartisan proposal presented by members of the Senate and House on Tuesday. "We had some not to good news on the jobs front that further necessitates our taking action to crush the virus," Pelosi said.

REUTERS/Tom BrennerWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday there was momentum behind talks on a coronavirus relief bill and that a bipartisan COVID-19 proposal could be the basis for relief negotiations. There is momentum,” Pelosi told reporters at a press conference. But it is unclear whether McConnell would agree to such a large package after pushing to keep COVID-19 relief spending near the $500 billion mark. The bipartisan package is also smaller than the $2.2 trillion deal that Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer have sought.

Lawmakers enacted $3 trillion in aid earlier this year but have not been able to agree on fresh relief since the spring. “The situation requires urgent action,” President-elect Joe Biden in a statement that called on the Trump administration and Congress to reach agreement on coronavirus relief. But it is unclear whether McConnell would agree to such a large package after pushing to keep COVID-19 relief spending near the $500 billion mark. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow, speaking to reporters at the White House on Friday, declined to comment on whether the $908 billion bipartisan proposal was too expansive. He said Trump wanted to see a “targeted” coronavirus relief bill.

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey’s lira briefly slipped on Friday after U.S. lawmakers included mandatory Turkish sanctions in a defence spending bill that moves Washington a step closer to punishing its NATO ally for buying Russian S-400 missile defences last year. U.S. President Donald Trump, who is set to step down next month, has said he will veto the bill over separate provisions. Sanctions could harm a Turkish economy already struggling with a coronavirus-induced slowdown, double-digit inflation and badly depleted foreign reserves. The defence bill includes sanctions under the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), which are designed in part to deter cooperation with Russia. “If Trump chooses from among the lighter sanctions I think given the global risk appetite we still can see a benign performance in the lira,” said one Turkish trader.

If results from the general election are any guide, that visit from Mr. Trump isn’t necessarily a boon for the Georgia Republicans. Mr. Trump’s visits do appear to supercharge turnout in some places, but not always to his benefit, a Wall Street Journal analysis found. But in 38 of the 48 counties, Mr. Trump’s 2020 share of the vote declined compared with 2016. That doesn’t mean Mr. Trump’s Georgia trip will follow that pattern. If Mr. Trump’s Georgia rally focuses on the need to elect the two Republicans from the state, Sens.

If the bill is approved by Trump before the Jan. 15 deadline to withdraw troops, it also would appear to freeze his plan to slash troop levels in Afghanistan to 2,500 from 4,500. Committee aides said they expected the House would pass the bill early next week, sending it to the Senate. After that, it would go to the White House, for Trump to sign or veto. Members of Congress said it has nothing to do with the military and should not be used to stop an important defense bill. The bill imposes mandatory sanctions on Turkey for its acquisition of the Russian S-400 air missile defense system.

REUTERS/Bryan WoolstonThe Labor Department’s closely watched employment report on Friday will only cover the first two weeks of November, when the current wave of coronavirus infections started. “The November employment report may be the last ‘strong’ employment report for a while until a vaccine is widely available,” said Sam Bullard, a senior economist at Wells Fargo Securities in Charlotte, North Carolina. That would be the smallest gain since the jobs recovery started in May and a fifth straight monthly deceleration in job gains, leaving employment 9.621 million jobs below its February peak. The number of people out of work for more than six months surged by 1.2 million in October. Slower job and wage growth would lead to weakness in a proxy for take-home pay.
