Liverpool's mass COVID-19 testing program, a pilot in Prime Minister Boris Johnson's "Operation Moonshot vision," is dividing public health officials and politicians, according to The Washington Post. Liverpool, the UK's tenth largest city, has implemented a mass swabbing and testing program to curb the spread of COVID-19 — and according to new reporting from The Washington Post, there are mixed feelings about the program. The implementation of the pilot mass testing program in Liverpool is part of a broader effort to conduct six-week testing surges across the country's "Tier 3" cities after the national lockdown ends next week. Health Secretary Matt Hancock also praised the effort and claimed that in Liverpool, cases had declined by two thirds. At the start of December, 40% of England's population will be eligible for mass testing, and the government's goal is to swab 10 million people a day.

Nike, Coca-Cola, and Apple were among the companies that lobbied to weaken a bill aimed at banning US firms from relying on Chinese forced labor, The New York Times reported Sunday. HSBC, American Apparel, and several industry groups also lobbied on the bill, which would ban many goods imported from Xinjiang unless companies prove they weren't made with forced labor. Coca-Cola told The Times in a statement that it "strictly prohibits any type of forced labor in our supply chain." It instead referred it to a letter it and other groups wrote in November, saying they supported addressing forced labor. Coca-Cola told The Times that a COFCO Tunhe plant in Xinjiang — that The Wall Street Journal reported last year was using forced labor — passed an independent audit in 2019 as well.

The assassination of a top Iranian nuclear scientist was designed to derail President-elect Joe Biden's plans to return to the 2015 nuclear deal, according to experts and former US diplomats. One top expert on the Middle East told Insider that the assassination "fits with Israeli long-standing policy of targeting Iranian nuclear scientists." A former US diplomat told Insider there are "are ample reasons to suspect US involvement" in last Friday's attack, citing President Donald Trump's opposition to the Iran nuclear deal. The Trump administration aimed to cripple Iran's economy and squeeze it into negotiating a more stringent version of the 2015 nuclear deal. But the Soleimani strike essentially led Iran to abandon the 2015 nuclear deal altogether.

President-elect Joe Biden has angered both progressive Democrats and Republicans with his announcement that he will nominate Neera Tanden to direct the Office of Management and Budget. But several prominent progressives, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Barbara Lee, endorsed Biden's pick. Briahna Joy Gray, a former press secretary for Sanders' 2020 presidential campaign, tweeted, "Everything toxic about the corporate Democratic Party is embodied in Neera Tanden." Justice Democrats celebrated Biden's decision to pick the progressive economists Heather Boushey and Jared Bernstein for his Council of Economic Advisers. "People definitely understand that progressives might not have to expend a lot of powder on Neera Tanden because Republicans are already out there saying what they're saying," he said.

President Donald Trump and top aides were convinced on election night that as in 2016, Trump would upset the odds and clinch victory, reported The Washington Post. Since losing the election more than two weeks ago, Trump has made baseless claims of election fraud and refused to concede defeat. President Donald Trump was convinced he would win on election night, and exploded with anger when Fox News projected that the Democrats had flipped Arizona, The Washington Post reported. According to a behind-the-scenes look in the Post at Trump's unprecedented bid to overturn the election result, Trump decided to claim the election was stolen from him by fraud on election night. In the weeks since election night, Trump has continued to make baseless claims that the election was stolen from him due to widespread ballot fraud.

Attorneys on the Trump campaign legal team described Rudy Giuliani as "deranged" and ill-suited to litigating the legal effort to overturn the election result, reported The Washington Post. Lawyers working on the Trump campaign have said Rudy Giuliani seemed "deranged' and ill-prepared to lead the legal effort to overturn the election result, reported The Washington Post Sunday. In a deep-dive into the Trump campaign's unprecedented attempt to overturn the election result, the Post reports that a rift developed in the campaign's legal team earlier in November. Giuliani clashed with other Trump campaign attorneys, according to the report, and continued to tell the president he had a serious chance of winning his lawsuits, while other officials offered more realistic assessments. The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Business Insider recently spoke to the senior members of five college Republican groups across the country for their reaction. 'Pleasantly surprised' by the electionThe college Republicans we spoke to largely believe their cohort will follow the trend of previous generations, and grow more politically conservative with age. Philip Anderson, co-chair of the Marquette University College Republicans, also said he was encouraged seeing new demographics voting red.

Going forward, Patton said that he hopes the Republican Party takes the concerns of young voters into consideration.

They argue soon-to-be-former President Trump already poses a danger because of the secrets he currently possesses, and they say it would be foolish to trust him with more sensitive information. Goldsmith and other experts noted that Trump has a history of carelessly revealing classified information. said Priess, who wrote "The President's Book of Secrets," about presidents and intelligence. It's unclear whether former President Barack Obama has received intelligence briefings after he left office, but President Trump said in March that he hasn't consulted his predecessors about coronavirus or anything else. Like so much with Trump, his track record of sharing secrets has been unprecedented in American presidential history.

As we careen toward the holidays and a record number of COVID-19 cases and fatalities, the GOP's opposition to health mandates is increasingly dangerous. Republicans stand alone in their extremist position that people will abide by health recommendations even in the absence of mandates. As we careen toward the holidays with record numbers of cases and uncontrolled spread across the US, the GOP's continued opposition to state-imposed limitations on social gatherings is now just a gruesome spectacle. Republican's opposition to "authoritarianism" is notably only for a specific brand of power - namely authority that they've branded as "socialist." In early October, thanks to a lawsuit brought by Republican legislators in Michigan, the Michigan Supreme Court struck down all of Gov.

In a Friday tweet filled with lies, President Trump implied he won't leave the White House and won't let President-elect Joe Biden "enter" unless Biden can prove his election win was not fraudulent. "Biden can only enter the White House as President if he can prove that his ridiculous "80,000,000 votes" were not fraudulently or illegally obtained. Biden does not have to disprove mass fraud to become president, and there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election. There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud in any of the cities listed in Trump's tweet. Trump himself does not have the authority to determine whether Biden "can enter" the White House.

Viewers like me might've cringed last Sunday watching HBO's "The Undoing" and hearing Nicole Kidman's character be corrected by her British mother-in-law for saying "none of us are" instead of "none of us is." Kidman's character says nothing. And though Grace's mother-in-law is English, this is not a difference between British English and American English. Those who stubbornly believe that "none" must always take a singular verb — as the Janet Fraser character believes — do so at the risk of uttering absurdities. Which leads us back to Kidman's character, who had it right after all.

One of Saudi Arabia's most prominent women's rights campaigners, Loujain al-Hathloul, shook uncontrollably and spoke in an uncharacteristically faint voice during a rare court appearance this week, a family member told NBC News on Thursday. Loujain, 31, was told during the hearing that her case would be transferred to the country's Specialized Criminal Court, which deals with terrorism cases, Lina said. Lynn Maalouf, deputy regional director for the Middle East and North Africa at London-based rights campaigner Amnesty International, called the court transfer "a disturbing move." Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have said that at least three jailed women's rights activists, including Loujain, have been held in solitary confinement and subjected to abuse including electric shocks, flogging and sexual assault. Demonstrators from Amnesty International stage a protest on International Women's day in 2019 to urge Saudi authorities to release jailed women's rights activists Loujain al-Hathloul, Eman al-Nafjan and Aziza al-Yousef outside the Saudi embassy in Paris, France.

Relaxing the patriarchy can give all of us — women, men, everybody — something to be grateful for. This more chill Nov. 26 may provide the perfect moment to break down the gender binary of the holiday table. Even at holiday meals, the patriarchy places men atop a gender hierarchy that subordinates women. Even if a woman procured and prepared the turkey, gender norms often put a man at the head of the table to carve the bird.

President Donald Trump is leaning on the advice of aides, family members and TV hosts in considering which criminals to pardon before leaving office, reported The Washington Post. Trump on Wednesday pardoned Michael Flynn, his former national security advisor, who lied to FBI agents about his contact with Russian officials in 2016. President Donald Trump is leaning on the counsel of friends, TV hosts, and family members in deciding which criminals to pardon before leaving office in January, reported The Washington Post. Speculation is growing on whom the president will pardon to in his last weeks before leaving office on January 20. Trump claimed that Flynn did not receive a fair hearing as part of the investigation into his crimes.

There is growing speculation that President Donald Trump could decide to issue himself a presidential pardon before leaving office in January, as a way to shield himself from future prosecution. In time-honored style, President Donald Trump spent Thanksgiving Eve taking part in the annual presidential turkey pardoning ceremony in the White House Rose Garden. On Wednesday, the president retweeted a post from GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz, which said: "President Trump should pardon Flynn, the Thanksgiving turkey, and everyone from himself, to his admin, to Joe Exotic if he has to." But the presidential pardoning power only applies to federal crimes, so would not apply to any of the nine lawsuits currently being pursued. Ultimately, the fact that a self-pardon is an option being seriously discussed highlights the legal problems that Trump could face when he leaves office.

Rep. Bill Pascrell, a Democrat from New Jersey, filed a complaint to the New York State judicial conduct body to revoke Giuliani's license, the congressman tweeted Tuesday. Giuliani and other Trump supporters have been leading efforts attempting to overturn the results of the election, citing disputed conspiracy theories related to election fraud, voter fraud, and mail-in voting. "Donald Trump has done great damage to this nation — but he has always had helpers," Pascrell told The Washington Post via a spokesperson. A congressman from New Jersey filed a complaint seeking to disbar President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani after attempts to invalidate President-elect Joe Biden's win.

But after three years of "maximum pressure" under Trump's sanctions and dramatically deepened distrust between Tehran and Washington, that may be a lot further off than it sounds. Iran's economy has contracted on average 6% each year since Trump unilaterally withdrew from the multi-country deal, brokered under the Obama administration to curb Iran's nuclear activity in exchange for sanctions relief. Fear of a Trump returnBut for Biden, the Iran deal is likely not a top priority post-inauguration: His first six months are set to be consumed with tackling the coronavirus pandemic and a battered U.S. economy. And within the U.S., national security experts are skeptical of real compliance from Iran if Washington dives into the deal too eagerly. "But we should probably expect Iran to take advantage of this initial goodwill rollback and to try to get as much as they can out of a Biden administration while giving very little themselves."

After he leaves the White House, Trump is going to turn the GOP into 'The Apprentice' — a show where he stars, hosts, and all the contestants compete for his favor. It's becoming crystal clear what Trump wants to do after he leaves the White House — he wants to turn the GOP into his old TV show, "The Apprentice." Just like the show, Trump envisions a Republican Party where everyone who wants to be anyone has to vie for his approval. That means he will prioritize slavish devotion over talent, just like he did in his highly incompetent White House and with his highly incompetent legal team. This is exactly what the Republican Party deserves.
