Airlines are stepping up their security measures on flights to Washington, DC ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration. Alaska Airlines is enacting the most stringent policies that restrict ticket sales on Washington flights and when passengers can leave their seats. That list includes American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Alaska Airlines, Frontier Airlines, and Southwest Airlines. Spirit Airlines is banning firearms on flights to Baltimore as the airline does not fly to either or Washington's local airports. Harteveldt told Insider that no such restrictions were enacted post-9/11 and no other airline told Insider that alcohol sales would be put on hold.

Construction of a Trump library could wind up being a major battleground over the legacy of the twice-impeached president. It's unclear whether either university Trump attended would want to house a Trump library. President John Kennedy picked a spot for his presidential library near Harvard, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, a month before his assassination. Richard Nixon's presidential library in Yorba Linda, California, was at the center of a historical brawl over the Watergate scandal. Language in the Presidential Records Act "places the responsibility for the custody and management of incumbent Presidential records with the President."

zimmytws | iStock | Getty ImagesMany retirees count down the days until they are eligible for Social Security benefits. That has prompted Washington lawmakers and Social Security experts to contemplate how to restore the program's solvency for current and future beneficiaries. How current claiming rules workCurrent Social Security rules allow workers to claim retirement benefits starting at age 62, or what's known as the early eligibility age. What may happen if the full retirement age goes upAs the full retirement age gradually increases to 67, the early eligibility age of 62 does not change, according to today's rules. The change could also prompt more people to try to claim Social Security disability benefits, which would further stress the system's solvency.

“He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.” “These facts require immediate actions by President Trump,” he continued. A few Republicans defended him, but most others simply argued that a rush to impeach Mr. Trump without a hearing or an investigation raised constitutional questions. With Democrats controlling the House, Mr. Trump is expected to become the first American president to be impeached twice. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington sent a letter to Mr. Trump on Sunday asking for an emergency declaration to obtain additional funding for inauguration security. On Tuesday, a federal inspector general questioned an order to deliver the estimates before Mr. Trump leaves office, after whistle-blowers warned that the rush would imperil their accuracy.

But while the violence escalated, the call to deploy to the Capitol did not come in time to help. “They just stayed there the entire time, waiting,” the former official familiar with the events told NBC News. FPS had asked CBP to have agents on standby on Monday, Jan. 4, but did not call them during the heat of the siege on the Capitol Wednesday. Some CBP agents were eventually deployed, but it was only after dusk and after the violence had largely subsided, the officials said. Oregon Governor Kate Brown eventually struck a deal with the federal government to withdraw federal agents, though many CBP personnel remained on standby in Portland.

Democrats are conflicted about President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration. After all, it's the Republican's federal agencies that are overseeing inauguration security. Making matters even more complicated is the fact Trump has also said he will not attend Biden's inauguration. But other Democrats said they had confidence in the inaugural plan Biden has already put in place. For security purposes, Biden's inauguration was long ago designated a National Special Security Event by the Homeland Security Department.

The Trump administration declared Cuba a state sponsor of terrorism on Monday, the latest in a series of actions aimed at undoing the Obama-era legacy of opening U.S. relations with the island nation just weeks before President-elect Joe Biden takes office. Placing Cuba back on the list before the Trump administration leaves office will place a major roadblock for efforts by incoming Biden officials to return to the Obama-era policy. Pompeo has been weighing the decision to place Cuba back on the terrorism list for months, sources said. Iran, North Korea and Syria are the only nations currently designated as state sponsors of terrorism, which requires the State Department to certify a country "repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism." The Trump administration removed Sudan from the list last month shortly after they agreed to formally recognize Israel.

So there’s only so much to be gained from interviewing red-hatted guys in diners; there have always been people like that. But the party needed more than plutocracy to win elections, so it began courting working-class whites with what amounted to thinly disguised racist appeals. For a long time Republican elites imagined that they could exploit racism and conspiracy theorizing while remaining focused on a plutocratic agenda. And there’s no reason to believe that the atrocities yet to come — for there will be more atrocities — will make a difference.

WASHINGTON — Security will be tightened for members of Congress while they travel after supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol and harassed at least three lawmakers at airports for not supporting an effort to overturn election results. The Washington Metropolitan Airports Authority and U.S. Air Marshals will increase security for congressional travel to and from Washington, according to a memo obtained by NBC News. The memo asks members of Congress to consider submitting plans to law enforcement officials to "ensure an increased security posture" at Washington Dulles, Ronald Reagan National and Baltimore/Washington airports. Lindsey Graham, of South Carolina, and Mitt Romney, of Utah, were heckled by Trump supporters while traveling to their home states. Capitol Police and other law enforcement agencies have come under fierce criticism for not being better prepared for Wednesday's violent incursion, prompting Chief Steven Sund to announce his resignation.

“The people didn’t show up with guns trying to overthrow the government, but the media likes to spin it that way,’’ he said. The interviews with Trump voters suggest that even his assault on the most bedrock norm of American democracy — the peaceful transition of power — may still not bring about mass defections. The share of Republicans who trust the mass media has plunged in the Trump years to 10 percent, according to Gallup. A majority of Republicans believe Mr. Trump was robbed of the election. On Friday, at Ronald Reagan National Airport in Washington, a group of die-hard Trump supporters yelled “traitor” and “liar” at Senator Lindsey Graham, the South Carolina Republican, for failing to more aggressively back the president’s claims of a rigged election.

The U.S. attorney in Washington initially refused to rule out investigating Mr. Trump’s role in the riot. The deadly storming of the Capitol by Mr. Trump’s supporters transformed the politics of Washington in ways that were still hard to measure. The December call to the investigator, like the call Mr. Trump made to Mr. Raffensperger, was recorded, the official said. Mr. Trump had pressured Mr. Pence publicly and privately to overturn the certifications and throw them back to the states so that Mr. Trump could try to undo results in states that Mr. Biden won. Parler is one of several upstarts that have courted President Trump’s supporters with promises of “unbiased” and “free speech” social networks.

Members of President Donald Trump's cabinet are discussing invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office, CBS News, ABC News, and CNN reported. Members of President Donald Trump's cabinet are in the early stages of considering the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office, multiple media outlets reported, a move that would be unlike any other since the amendment was ratified six decades ago. Pence, for his part, plays no role in approving or rejecting a state's electoral votes and his involvement in the matter is largely ceremonial.

That's why any honest conservative with a shred of dignity or belief in democracy should leave the Republican Party, immediately. As Donald Trump Jr. put it during a rally for Trump supporters on Wednesday morning: "This isn't their Republican Party anymore! This is Donald Trump's Republican Party!" Any conservative with shred of dignity or principle remaining should understand that there's nothing left to save in the Republican Party. The party, Trump's party, is a decomposing corpse.

Gary Locke, former U.S. ambassador to China, told CNBC on Thursday that the "deplorable" Capitol Hill riot has likely damaged American standing around the globe. He was ambassador to China from 2011 to 2014 under former President Barack Obama and, before that, led the Department of Commerce. After the pro-Trump mob occupied the Capitol, the president posted a video on Twitter telling them to "go home now" — while again making false claims about the election results. U.S. allies have expressed disappointment over the Capitol chaos, with U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday calling it "disgraceful." Political scientist Larry Sabato told CNBC he believes the global image of the U.S. has been impaired by the Capitol Hill riots.

Some airlines are banning alcohol on their flights departing Washington and moving their flight crews out of downtown hotels. The arrest data suggests a large number of out-of-town visitors, many of whom flew to Washington on commercial airlines. And as the dust settles on an unprecedented raid on the US Capitol Building, those rioters are now heading home, with airlines gearing up for the worst. The spokesperson also expressed the airline's support for the Association of Flight Attendant's plea to ban rioters from flights departing Washington. The other two major airlines currently serving Washington including JetBlue Airways and Frontier Airlines did not respond to Insider's request for comment.

Airlines are moving flight crews to hotels outside of central Washington D.C. to avoid the protests at the U.S. Capitol, airlines and a major labor union said. American Airlines started booking crews overnighting in Washington to airport hotels on Tuesday and plans to do the same on Wednesday at a minimum, said Curtis Blessing, an American Airlines spokesman. United Airlines flight attendants will also be staying at airport hotels this week, while Alaska Airlines were told to avoid downtown Washington D.C., said Taylor Garland, spokeswoman for the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, which represents cabin crews at those airlines and more than a dozen others. United crews overnighting in Atlanta are also staying at airport hotels this week. Airlines had moved crews out of central Washington D.C. on Election Day because of concerns about demonstrations and potential logistical issues.

REUTERS/Carlos BarriaNEW YORK (Reuters Breakingviews) - U.S. airlines need more than a little help. The “Big Four” – Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, United Airlines and Southwest Airlines – have been pleading for additional bailouts as Covid-19 continues to crimp travel. In 2021, the big carriers will shrink from four to three. America doesn’t, but pandemic bailouts have made the Big Four quasi-government-owned, giving the public a stake in their future. If revenue rebounds only 70% while costs remain stable, American’s EBITDA plunges to just $335 million – not a crazy assumption given the expected long-term impact on corporate travel and airlines’ outsize operating leverage.
