President Xi Jinping is asking former CEO Howard Schultz of Starbucks to help repair U.S.-Chinese relations that have plunged to their lowest level in decades amid a tariff war and tension over technology and security. A letter from Xi to Schultz reported Friday by the official Xinhua News Agency was a rare direct communication from China's paramount leader to a foreign business figure. Xi wrote to Schultz “to encourage him and Starbucks to continue to play an active role in promoting Chinese-U.S. economic and trade cooperation and the development of bilateral relations,” Xinhua reported. Schultz said in 2019 that he was considering running for president as an independent but later dropped that. Xinhua said Xi was responding to a letter from Schultz that congratulated the Chinese leader on “the completion of a well-off society” under his leadership, Xinhua said.

To explain the attack on the Capitol, you can’t just turn your focus to Donald Trump and his enablers. You must also look at the individuals and institutions that fanned fears of “voter fraud” to the point of hysteria among conservative voters, long before Trump. Put another way, the difference between a riot seeking to overturn an election and an effort to suppress opposing votes is one of legality, not intent. And the residents of cemeteries have infamously shown up at the polls on Election Day. The Republican National Committee supported this push, claiming to have evidence that thousands of voters had cast more than one ballot in the same election.

After Mr. Evans graduated in 2005, he and Mr. Lutz moved to New York. As Mr. Evans bounced between temporary jobs, he took daylong bike rides through the boroughs and ventured to far-flung neighborhoods. But of all the initiatives on his docket, he was particularly fascinated with the Moynihan Train Hall. Converting the neighboring, century-old Farley building into a train hall would divert foot traffic and restore some grandeur to one of the city’s gateways, making amends for the destruction of the original, majestic Penn Station in the 1960s. But by the time it landed on Mr. Evans’s plate in 2008, it had begun to pick up steam.

The new year is a good time to focus on paying down credit card balances accrued over previous months, particularly during the holidays, even if, like many Americans, you are carrying less credit card debt than you were before the pandemic. Over all, American credit card balances dipped 13 percent from the end of 2019 through the third quarter of 2020, as consumers spent less and whittled card debt during the pandemic, according to federal data. Requests for help with credit card debt typically spike at the start of a year, according to Money Management International, a nonprofit credit counseling agency, but “we have not seen the normal increase we would have seen,” said Thomas Nitzsche, a spokesman for the agency. Americans who didn’t lose their jobs were left with more cash to pay down card debt. And the federal government’s pandemic relief efforts, including cash stimulus payments, further bolstered their finances, said Ted Rossman, an industry analyst for CreditCards.com.

Mark Leffingwell of Seattle, who faces charges for assaulting a police officer, is an Iraq war veteran who suffers from PTSD and traumatic brain injury, his lawyer told a judge. Lonnie Coffman, a 70-year-old Alabama man arrested for having explosives in his truck, takes multiple drugs for mental illness, his lawyer told the judge in a hearing this week. Inside his truck, they found an AR-15-style rifle, a shotgun, a crossbow, several machetes, smoke grenades and 11 Molotov cocktails. Two other men, Eric Munchel and Larry Brock, both were photographed inside the Capitol carrying zip ties, commonly used as a handcuff. Michael Curzio, arrested at the front of a crowd inside the Capitol, had recently served a prison sentence in Florida for attempted murder.

But that debate turned into a rout — 197 House Republicans opposing Trump’s impeachment, versus 10 voting for it. Now 10 House Republicans supporting their president’s impeachment wasn’t insignificant: It’s more than the House Democratic defections in Bill Clinton’s impeachment (five) and House GOP defections in Trump’s first impeachment (zero). But as impeachment moves to a Senate trial, the question we have: Are 10 House GOP defections worth 20 Senate GOP defections?

The burly, confident leader of the CDU’s Bavarian sister party, the Christian Social Union (CSU), is voters’ choice conservative. He senses a unique chance to assert himself as a unifier, or else as chancellor candidate. He has called for the Union to decide on its chancellor candidate only after state elections in mid-March. “If he feels that the CDU leader has a real chance, he will tend to play the kingmaker,” said senior CSU lawmaker Hans Michelbach. “But if he concludes the CDU leader doesn’t cut it, then things are different.”

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is one of the most successful entertainers in the world. In 2020, for the second year in a row, Johnson, 48, was the highest-paid actor in the world, according to Forbes. "For many years, my ambition and my drive..to be honest with you....was I didn't want to be evicted anymore," Johnson tells CNBC Make It. When Johnson was 14, his family was evicted from their one-bedroom apartment in Hawaii after his parents struggled to pay the rent. Johnson started lifting weights at the YMCA as a teenager, he said in a 2018 Instagram post.

Furthermore, Democrats know impeachment won’t stop Trump’s bad behavior as president — because he’ll be out of office before he can be impeached. Many Trump supporters feel that elites have sought to remove Trump from the get-go. Indeed, Democrats and “Never Trump” Republicans have discussed using impeachment or the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from the White House before he was even elected to it. Democrats — and many Republicans — have made it clear they want Trump to disappear from public life forever. Let Trump leave in ignominy, which will happen on Jan. 20 even if Democrats do nothing.

How Can ‘Jeopardy!’ Replace Alex Trebek? See Game-Show History

When Bob Barker left “The Price Is Right” after 35 years of giving out cars and vacations to Hawaii, many people wondered whether the show would survive. The show auditioned several potential candidates, one of whom was Mike Richards, who was then the host of a reality show called “Beauty and the Geek.” Richards didn’t get the part. But about a year later, he would be brought in as an executive producer to help figure out how the show could thrive with its new host: the comedian Drew Carey. Now Richards needs to engineer another successful game show succession. “Jeopardy!” began a new era Monday without Alex Trebek, its host of 36 years, who died in November and whose last episode was broadcast Friday.

Former Attorney General William Barr, still leading the Department of Justice at the time, said no widespread fraud was evident. Advocacy groups and nonprofits were founded in the name of preventing or rooting out voter fraud. While the suppressive effect of such laws has been well documented, there’s still no proof that widespread voter fraud exists. A majority of Republicans said in August 2016 that voter fraud was a "major problem," according to a Gallup survey. Trump's voter fraud lie began his first days in office, when he claimed it cost him the popular vote.

WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden said Friday that he favors setting aside concerns about the federal deficit in order to spend more money to boost the ailing American economy. "If we don't act now things will get much worse and harder to get out of the hole later. The president-elect suggested he believes the $900 billion pandemic relief package passed by Congress last month would not be enough. In the near term, at least, some fiscally conscious Democrats say they are willing to set aside fiscal concerns to address the pandemic-induced economic crisis. If you don’t actually invest in helping the country through it you’ll pay a much greater price at the back end."

Organizers in Georgia told NBC News that the candidates' support for the LGBTQ community goes beyond just supporting federal legislation. Georgia Equality, he added, engaged around 650,000 pro-equality voters — both LGBTQ Georgians and allies who support LGBTQ rights —as part of the organization’s comprehensive get-out-the-vote effort. “This is not something that LGBTQ folks in Georgia, or frankly in the South, are used to having.”The Rev. Jen, a 45-year-old bisexual woman who lives outside Atlanta, said the election of Ossoff and Warnock brought relief for her and her transgender child. “LGBTQ issues and rights are human rights — they are everyone’s rights.

Dominion Voting Systems, one of the biggest U.S. election equipment manufacturers and the subject of numerous incoherent conspiracy theories after the 2020 election, has sued lawyer Sidney Powell, who represented President Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn the election’s results, for defamation. “Powell falsely claimed that Dominion had rigged the election, that Dominion was created in Venezuela to rig elections for Hugo Chávez, and that Dominion bribed Georgia officials for a no-bid contract,” the lawsuit states. A Dominion employee who had been subjected to targeted harassment from Trump supporters had previously personally sued Powell and others. Some of the most widespread claims targeted Dominion, which supplied voting systems to 28 states. Powell promised big and didn't deliver, insisting she would "release the kraken," referring to a bombshell revelation about election conspiracy that would result in Trump winning the election after he lost.

But echoing a sentiment held by many Trump supporters, Emerson expressed frustration with what he called the hypocrisy of those who condemned the riots but turned a blind eye to violence at Black Lives Matter protests last summer. They blamed the violence on left wing protesters - without any evidence - and expressed little hope that the deeply divided country would unify anytime soon. On Thursday, as the threat of a second impeachment loomed, Trump denounced the violence and committed to a transition of power. Several administration officials have resigned but Trump’s fans appeared to care little about what politicians - even Republicans - had to say in Washington. She said Trump supporters were tired of being wrongly labeled as ignorant, violent or racist.

With North Korea’s economy already under siege from international sanctions imposed over its nuclear weapons programme, last year the country was further buffeted by damaging floods and an economically devastating lockdown aimed at preventing a coronavirus outbreak. Economic policy is one area where there appears to be real factions within the North Korean government. In the unofficial market in capital Pyongyang, North Korean won’s value has risen some 17.5% and 15.2% against the dollar and Chinese yuan over the three past months, according to data compiled by Daily NK. And smugglers, who analysts say are essential if North Korea is to alleviate the worst social consequences of the border closure, have instead been accused of anti-state actions.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., had a laptop stolen, as did Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., who tweeted about the theft. It wasn't immediately clear what protections were on those devices, though Congress generally lags behind the federal government in implementing cybersecurity measures. Not all Senate computers automatically encrypt their hard drives or require a password to log in if they're unused for a few minutes. Thursday during a private breakfast at the RNC Winter Meeting, President Trump called into this smaller and more private event.
