  1. I just hope they take an entire inventory of things within the White House.
  2. x She has seen 4 US presidents and 7 Italian minister president. Queen of consistency.
  3. After $15 billion looted from the Defense Department of the United States, and 450 miles (only 12 of which are brand new, the remaining 438 miles already had some form of barrier on them), Joe Biden, when he becomes President of the United States on January 20th, plans on halting the signature issue of former President Donald Trump. Trump and his supporters viewed the wall both as an actual deterrent to smuggling and illegal border crossing, and a powerful symbol that uninvited migrants were not welcome and that the United States was tightening security. For immigrant advocates and for many Mexicans, it has been an affront. Although Biden won’t push to dismantle Trump’s physical legacy, he will undo sharp curbs on refugee admissions and a host of other immigration policies put in place through executive order. A wall on the scale Trump demanded wasn’t even a minor priority during the Obama years for Republicans when they controlled both the House and Senate, and Cuellar sees little political will to push ahead with it once he’s gone. “The wall came up after Trump came in. I think they will lose their appetite to fight for the wall,” he said. Five days before the election, acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said that by year’s end, 450 miles will be completed. Another 210 miles are under construction, he said. But at the current pace, contractors might only get to about 470 miles by the time Biden is sworn in. Advocates for tougher border security say that’s not enough, though they concede there’s no hope that construction will continue under Biden. Source
  4. Colorado voters have decided to join a growing list of states that will decide a president by popular vote, the latest move in a national chess match over the way the United States elects its presidents. Called the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, the agreement calls for states to award their electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote. So far, 15 states and the District of Columbia have approved the pact, covering 196 electoral votes of the required 270 to win the presidency. That 270 matters: The states that have approved legislation to join the compact agreed it would not take effect until the 270 threshold is reached. Once it does, those states will have the power to use their Electoral College votes to elect a winner, according to the popular vote. This uses the Electoral College to effectively abolish the Electoral College. Colorado’s Senate was the first state legislative body to try to pass the national popular vote proposal in 2006, though the legislation failed multiple times. It was ultimately signed into law last year by Gov. Jared Polis, a Democrat, but was then was successfully challenged by Coloradans Vote, a group that gathered enough signatures to invoke a rarely used referendum to ask Colorado voters to confirm or repeal the law. John Koza was part of that early effort and was the creator and chair of the National Popular Vote nonprofit. He is a computer scientist who is known for his work in genetics and even co-invented the scratch-off lottery ticket and has had more than a passing interest in how the U.S. presidential election operates. “I've been interested in the quirks of the Electoral College since the ’60s,” Koza said.“Several of us got together and said maybe a state-based approach, which is what we have, would be a better way to try to get a national popular vote. So that's how the national popular vote got started.” While the compact has gained traction in states run by Democratic governors, it has been supported by some Republicans such as former RNC chair Michael Steele. Critics, however, say the popular vote initiative will encourage candidates to focus on large cities, which tend to favor Democratic candidates. Koza takes issue with that. “We know how candidates campaign now, and they would campaign the same way they do now, except it would be spread out over the whole country,” he said. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna1247159
  5. This video popped up in my recommended a little earlier this year, around the time that it became abundantly clear Biden was going to be the nominee. I've never been an avid watcher of The View so I completely missed this when it first aired and went viral. I was an avid supporter of Bernie (and still am) and not the biggest fan of Biden. However when I saw this video I was able to see what many have seen for a long time and what many have come to see. This is a moment that transcends politics, yet it’s also my go to response to the “Why Biden?” question. I don’t agree with Biden on everything. He wasn’t my first choice. But at the end of the day, there’s more to being a president than your platform. The commander in chief is a role that demands decorum and dignity, compassion and empathy, the ability to listen and the ability to speak to the heart just as much as the mind. In this moment, Biden wasn’t thinking of Meghan McCain as a republican, as the daughter of a man he was once in competition with. He saw her as a daughter struggling to cope with watching a loved one suffer to the same disease that he himself watched a loved one suffer under. He spoke to her as a friend, as someone who understood, and offered support beyond a party line. And why? Because when it came down to it he was able to differentiate between the need to play the political game and the need to be a human being. This is the strongest endorsement that I can give to Biden. He possesses within him the capacity and emotional intelligence to think and indeed lead with good intention, lead with the heart, and most importantly lead without prejudice against those he may not agree with. I know many of you have doubts, I know many of you don’t see him as your first, maybe not even your second or third choice. But there is more than enough reason to believe in him. There’s more than enough reason to believe in his vision for the country. And there’s is no doubt that at the very, very least this man cares about the people he shares this country with, even if he may not agree with all of them. Vote. Vote like your life depends on it. Vote like your life depends on it because....it pretty much does.
  6. President Trump joked that he would "have to leave the country" if he loses the upcoming presidential election against Democratic nominee Joe Biden. "I will deliver optimism, opportunity and hope, and that's what we're doing, and this is why we have this kind of spirit, and I hate to say it because I don't want to insult Georgia, but it's this way all over our country," Trump told a cheering crowd at a campaign event in Macon, Ga., on Friday, later mocking the social distancing and face coverings at Biden's campaign events. Trump added: "I shouldn't joke because you know what? Running against the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics puts pressure on me. Could you imagine if I lose? My whole life, what am I going to do? I'm going to say 'I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics.' I'm not going to feel so good." "Maybe I'll have to leave the country? I don't know." Trump added. https://www.google.ca/amp/s/thehill.com/homenews/campaign/521513-trump-on-if-biden-wins-maybe-ill-have-to-leave-the-country%3famp
  7. https://www.businessinsider.com/herman-cain-dies-after-being-hospitalized-for-covid-19-2020-7 It's unclear how Cain contracted COVID-19. He tested positive for the disease 11 days after attending a campaign rally for President Donald Trump in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Cain, who was an ardent Trump supporter, tweeted out a photo of himself at the rally where neither he, nor those surrounding him, were wearing masks.
  8. We all know and saw what happened with USA citizen George Floyd and how he got MURDERED by a police officer (actually 4 police officers). Let's spread awareness about the BLM movement and sign as many petitions as we can, possibly donate and inform others about what's going on. No justice was served, not for every single black person who died and not for the black people who will die in the future (if we don't change things around). Staying quiet & silent about this equals being opressed and not caring about this major issue at all. It's 2020, it's time to speak up about this and make a change for the minorities in the world. https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/# https://blackliveswillalwaysmatter.carrd.co/#blm If anyone else has any ideas, information & more that could help all of us spread more awareness about this, then please do tell.
  9. North Korea's Supreme Leader/dictator Kim Jong-un has reportedly died, or is on his death bed with no hope for recuperation -- according to media outlets in China and Japan. Amid reports China has sent a medical team to their communist neighbors this week to check in/advise on Kim, a Hong Kong-backed news channel's vice director -- who's apparently the niece of a Chinese foreign minister -- blasted out the news herself ... he's dead. TMZ has not confirmed that. The woman put the report on a social media app called Weibo for her nearly 15 million followers to read, citing a "very solid source" about the claim Kim had, in fact, perished. A Japanese magazine reports he's in a "vegetative state" after a heart surgery gone wrong. The outlet reports -- citing a Chinese medical expert privy to the situation -- that Kim had clutched his chest in early April and fell down while visiting the countryside there. He needed a stent procedure done, but apparently ... it either wasn't done rapidly enough, or it was botched completely by the surgeon -- with some reports saying he had shaky hands. x
  10. In the aftermath of the killing of Iran's major general Qassem Soleimani, Iranian journalists have reported the censorship of their Instagram accounts. Posts about Soleimani have disappeared from Instagram which is currently the only operational international social media site within Iran. In a letter to Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri, the Association of Iranian Journalists in Tehran, Iran, called the censorship "unprecedented in the history of social networks and in conflict with the very innate actuality of media." The Association of Iranian Journalists is a full member organization of the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ). "At a time when Iranian citizens need access to information it is unacceptable that Instagram should choose to censor Iranian media and individual journalists and uses," said IFJ General Secretary Anthony Bellanger. Newsweek reached out to Mosseri for comment but did not receive a response in time for publication. Stephanie Otway, a spokesperson for Facebook, which owns Instagram, told codastory.com that the company conducts business "under U.S. sanctions laws, including those related to the U.S. government's designation of the IRGC [Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps] and its leadership." Officials in Iran said the social media censorship was the fault of the U.S. which allegedly sought to keep positive mentions of Soleimani off of the internet. "America's action shows its misfortune, as Iran is powerful on social media," Iran's Minister of Information and Communications Technology Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi said Tuesday in the Tehran Times. "The on-going presence of people on social networks with tens of millions of posts has echoed the U.S. terrorism in the world." Iranian government spokesman Ali Rabiel tweeted Monday that Instagram's removal of posts about Suleimani was "undemocratic." "In an undemocratic and unashmed action," Rabiel tweeted, "Instagram has blocked an innocence nations' voice protesting to the assesination ofGeneral #Soleimani,while the real terrorists have been given an open voice.The stick behind the democracy and media freedom is displayed in the nick of time." Countries have turned to internet censorship to quiet dissenters, attempt to quash protests or to keep the news from other countries from reaching their people. Iran throttled and stopped internet access to its citizens during anti-government protests that occurred in 2017 and 2018. North Korea has been known to block prevent information from outside its borders. On North Korea's biggest mobile network, Koryolink, subscribers cannot access any sites from outside the country, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists. Russia conducted a successful test of its own internet system in December 2019. As previously reported by Newsweek, Russian President Vladimir Putin has expressed a desire to create a Russian version of the popular user-edited site Wikipedia. At a Presidential Council on the Russian Language meeting in November 2019 Putin said, "It is better to replace [Wikipedia] with the new Great Russian Encyclopedia in electronic form. We are talking about this with our colleagues." https://www.newsweek.com/instagram-censoring-accounts-farsi-media-outlets-iranian-influencers-international-federation-1481609

  12. Liar Liar, the anti-Theresa May single that is racing up the Official Singles Chart, is now battling for this Friday's Number 1, OfficialCharts.com can reveal. By London seven-piece band Captain Ska, Liar Liar has continued to rise the chart ranks overnight and currently sits at Number 3 in today's sales flash (May 31). Sales of Liar Liar are being driven by downloads, with over 30,000 people picking up a digital copy of the track in five days, while the song has so far been streamed just over 100,000 times. The song's music video, which includes statistics on UK poverty levels and references to school and police cuts, is now has over one million views on YouTube. There has been speculation whether the BBC will air the song as part of Friday's Official Chart show on BBC Radio 1 due to the current election climate here in the UK. A spokesman has since confirmed that the BBC will conform with OFCOM ruling and stay impartial, stating: "We do not ban songs or artists, however our editorial guidelines require us to remain impartial and the UK is currently in an election period so we will not be playing the song.” Captain Ska are campaigning for the song to also be played on BBC Radio 1's Ten Minute Takeover, although the station has not featured the track despite the band's campaigns across the week. A clip of Liar Liar was however featured on BBC Two's Daily Politics Show. The band said in a statement: "The success of this song shows people are fed up with this government of the rich, for the rich. We’re overwhelmed with the support and our message is that people do have the power to change society if we act together.” Find out Liar Liar's final chart placing here on OfficialCharts.com at 5.45pm this Friday. Follow the Top 40 countdown live on BBC Radio 1's Official Chart show with Greg James from 4pm on Friday, June 2. View the latest Top 100 here. Source: OCC
  13. A top aide to President-elect Donald Trump says singer-songwriter Elton John will perform at the Republican’s inauguration in January. “Elton John is going to be doing our concert on the [national] mall for Inauguration,” Anthony Scaramucci, vice chairman of the presidential inaugural committee, told BBC’s “HARDtalk” Tuesday. Scaramucci added that John, an icon of gay culture, demonstrates the incoming Trump administration’s dedication to LGBT rights. “This will be the first American president in U.S. history that enters the White House with a pro-gay rights stance,” added Scaramucci, who is also a member of the presidential transition team’s executive committee. An aide to the performer, however, told the New York Post that John wouldn't perform at Trump's inauguration. “Elton will not be performing at Trump’s inauguration,” the representative said. Source
