President Joe Biden's Education Department is officially one step closer to finalizing its second attempt at student-loan forgiveness for federal borrowers. This second attempt at student-debt relief is separated from the other targeted relief initiatives the Education Department has been in the process of carrying out. During a February 21 speech touting the latest relief, Biden said he would continue to pursue loan forgiveness for federal borrowers despite legal challenges. "Look, early in my term, I announced a major plan to provide millions of working families with debt relief for their college student debt. "I announced we were going to pursue alternative paths for student debt relief for as many borrowers as possible.

In an interview with NBC News, Paul Carpenter said he was hired to create the audio by Steve Kramer, a campaign specialist recently paid over $100,000 by long shot Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Dean Phillips' campaign. Around the time of their collaboration, in January, Federal Election Commission records show that Phillips' campaign paid Kramer $112,353 for "NEW YORK BALLOT ACCESS 2ND PAYMENT" and more than $17,000 for similar work in Pennsylvania. AdvertisementDespite having paid Kramer for campaign services, Phillips' campaign press secretary, Katie Dolan, said the trailing campaign did not ask for the Biden audio to be produced. Phillips' campaign didn't appear to receive much of a boost — if any — from the fraudulent robocall scam. After weeks of campaigning, Biden trounced him in New Hampshire's Democratic primary via a write-in campaign.

The man pushing the thumb drive was a citizen of an Eastern European country and a guest of Claremont. That evening, Rollie passed a thumb drive containing disinformation about Hunter Biden and Burisma to a Pompeo aide. Smirnov was indicted last week for lying to the FBI about Hunter Biden. The revelation about Rollie's thumb drive comes shortly after the indictment of Smirnov, for allegedly making false statements about Hunter Biden in June 2020. Like Smirnov, Rollie's materials accuse Hunter Biden of involving his father in Burisma's business and committing a vast off-the-books fraud.

It's been a great month for Eaton stock. The power management company notched a series of record highs during a lengthy post-earnings rally that saw shares surge 17% in February. They include infrastructure spending, further artificial intelligence adoption necessitating the construction of more data centers, the acceleration of the transition to clean energy, and the rise of nearshoring and onshoring. The semiconductor giant's results highlighted strength and demand for data centers — a big part of Eaton's overall business and sales. AI data centers require lots more electrical components, which will likely show up on Eaton's order book down the line.

US President Biden arrives to board Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on December 20, 2023, as he departs for Milwaukee, Wisconsin. President Joe Biden's $140 million campaign war chest has been bolstered by a group of loyal advisers and fundraisers that some party strategists call a "dream team" effort to defeat the likely Republican nominee, former President Donald Trump. "They have kind of put together a dream team in fundraising," said Jim Messina, who served as former President Barack Obama's campaign manager for his successful 2012 reelection campaign. Katzenberg has been speaking with donors to Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley and trying to recruit them to support Biden. But Katzenberg pointed to Haley's support in places like New Hampshire, where she won 43% of the Republican primary vote, saying that suggests there is a slice of the Republican party ready to move on from Trump.

Thousands of student-loan borrowers just became the first group to see relief under President Joe Biden's new repayment reform. On Wednesday, Biden — along with the Education Department — announced that 153,000 borrowers are getting $1.2 billion in debt cancellation as a result of a new provision in the SAVE income-driven repayment plan. "If you've been paying for a decade, you've done your part, and you deserve relief," Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said in a statement. The Education Department first implemented the SAVE plan over the summer, intended to make borrowers' monthly payments cheaper. Of course, the relief comes as many borrowers are encountering challenges with the return to repayment that began in October.

Just consider three core holdings in the portfolio: Apple , Starbucks , and Nvidia . Nvidia generates 21% of its overall revenue from Mainland China, while Apple gets 19%, and Starbucks 9%. Xiamen-based Luckin Coffee, for example, overtook Starbucks in market share in China during 2023, with double the retail locations there. However, Nvidia still dominates the AI chip market in China, and it's difficult to see its rivals catching up anytime soon. The company has twice re-engineered chips for the Chinese market to comply with U.S. rules.

House Speaker Mike Johnson is blocking a $95 billion emergency foreign aid bill, saying he's in "no rush" to take up the legislation the Senate overwhelmingly approved last week. While supporters of the legislation say it's needed urgently to help Ukraine, The Wall Street Journal also points out that the bill would benefit the US economy. Lael Brainard, the director of the White House National Economic Council, told the Journal in a recent interview that the impact on the US economy would be significant. AdvertisementIt remains unclear when or if the House will take up the Senate bill. Trump in recent weeks also helped tank a bipartisan bill that would have tightened the US asylum system, among other measures.

U.S. President Joe Biden answers questions from reporters after driving a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Xe around the White House driveway following remarks during an event on the South Lawn of the White House August 5, 2021 in Washington, DC. The shift would mean that EV sales would not need to rise sharply until after 2030. Reuters previously reported that the White House could enact proposed Environmental Protection Agency regulations as soon as March that would mandate dramatic reductions in tailpipe emissions. The administration proposal would require boosting U.S. EV market share to 67% by 2032 from less than 8% in 2023. Automakers and the AAI have urged the Biden administration to slow the proposed ramp-up in EV sales.

(AP) — Sen. Tim Scott, a potential running mate if Donald Trump becomes the Republican presidential nominee, is treading carefully on questions about whether he would have certified the 2020 election had he been vice president at that time. He added: "You’re asking a hypothetical question that you know can never happen again.”Scott voted in favor of certifying the 2020 results when the Senate got back to work after the siege. Scott sidestepped questions Sunday about how he saw the vice president's role in the certification process. The legislation, in part, makes clear that the vice president’s responsibilities in the certification process are merely ceremonial and that the vice president has no say in determining who actually won the election. Trump is facing felony charges for working to overturn the results of the 2020 election in the run-up to the Capitol riot.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A measure of consumer sentiment ticked higher this month, after soaring in December and January, underscoring that Americans are starting to feel better about the economy after several years of gloom. The University of Michigan's consumer sentiment index, released Friday, ticked up to 79.6 in February, from 79 in January. Still, consumer sentiment remains 6% below its long-run average after the worst spike in inflation in four decades pushed up the cost of groceries, rent, gas, and other necessities, frustrating many consumers. “Consumers continued to express confidence that the slowdown in inflation and strength in labor markets would continue.”Improving consumer confidence can often lead to greater spending, which can support economic growth. Since the pandemic, however, consumer spending has been mostly healthy even when measures of sentiment were quite low.

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by conservative firebrand Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, will hold a hearing with special counsel Robert Hur on March 12, according to two people familiar with the plans who spoke anonymously to discuss the yet-to-be-announced hearing. The committee has spearheaded much of the House GOP's investigations into Biden, including the effort to impeach him. While that effort has floundered, Republicans want to hear from Hur after his report last week offered an unflattering assessment of Biden's competency and age. The hearing is sure to spill into a political spectacle as House Republicans have consistently sought to use hearings to punch holes in Biden's political weaknesses. Trump has bragged about his own memory, but at certain times in legal proceedings said he does not recall certain events.

President Joe Biden speaks about his economic plan at the Flex LTD manufacturing plant on July 6, 2023 in West Columbia, South Carolina. The Biden administration has released its proposal for which struggling borrowers should qualify for its new student loan forgiveness plan. At one point, it seemed possible that the "financial hardship" category had been dropped from what has become known as Biden's Plan B for student loan forgiveness. While Biden first attempted to cancel student debt through an executive order, he has now turned to the rulemaking process. Over three rulemaking sessions, the negotiators tasked with determining who will be eligible for the president's revised relief plan identified several categories that could signal hardship.

Texas' new law is set to take effect March 5. For months, tensions have escalated between the Biden administration and Texas over who can patrol the border and how. A heavy presence of Texas National Guard members in the border city of Eagle Pass has denied Border Patrol agents access to a riverfront park. The new measure would allow any Texas law enforcement officer to arrest people who are suspected of entering the country illegally. Republicans have defended the law by saying it would likely only be enforced near the U.S-Mexico border.

A Georgia judge presiding over criminal charges against Donald Trump is hearing arguments Thursday about whether to disqualify the district attorney leading the election interference case against the former president. The hearing centers on allegations from one of Trump's co-defendants that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and special prosecutor Nathan Wade personally benefited from their romantic relationship. The relationship began in late 2019, shortly after Willis and Wade met at a conference, Yeartie testified. Willis and Wade adamantly deny that their relationship presents a conflict of interest warranting their disqualification from the case. Trump has pleaded not guilty to 13 criminal counts in the Georgia election case.

AdvertisementA new poll from Monmouth University shows that just 1 in 3 voters are confident in President Joe Biden's physical and mental faculties, though support for the 2024 presidential candidate is around the same as from 2020. Conducted between February 8 to 12 with 902 US adults, the poll found that 32% of respondents felt confident in the 81-year-old Biden's "mental & physical stamina." Despite the waning public confidence in Biden's mental and physical strength, the poll found that support for the Democratic candidate remains about the same as in 2020 when he first faced off against Trump for president.

Whether any of the relief will materialize is a looming question as conservatives vow to challenge any attempt at mass student loan cancellation. For a Federal Stafford Loan, a Direct Subsidized Loan or a Direct Unsubsidized Loan, repayment starts after the initial grace period ends. For a Federal PLUS Loan or a Direct PLUS Loan, repayment starts the day the loan is fully disbursed. LOW-VALUE PROGRAMSBorrowers could get their loans canceled if they went to a for-profit college program that leaves graduates unable to repay their federal student loans. In general, programs are considered failing if graduates are paying more than 8% of their average yearly income on federal student loan payments.
