President Trump orders state of emergency at Mexican border to continue until 2022

On February 15, 2019, by Proclamation 9844, I declared a national emergency concerning the southern border of the United States to deal with the border security and humanitarian crisis that threatens core national security interests.

The ongoing border security and humanitarian crisis at the southern border of the United States continues to threaten our national security, including by exacerbating the effect of the pandemic caused by COVID-19. The executive branch has taken steps to address the crisis, but further action is needed to address the humanitarian crisis and to control unlawful migration and the flow of narcotics and criminals across the southern border of the United States.

For these reasons, the national emergency declared on February 15, 2019, and the measures adopted on that date to respond to that emergency, must continue in effect beyond February 15, 2021. Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency declared in Proclamation 9844 concerning the southern border of the United States.

This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.

DONALD J. TRUMP

THE WHITE HOUSE,
January 15, 2021.

The FBI has charged a woman involved in the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol after getting a tip from a former romantic partner stating the woman intended to take Nancy Pelosi’s computer and send it to Russia. There has been no indication the laptop has left the United States.

A Pennsylvania woman accused of being one of the Capitol rioters told a former "romantic partner" she planned to steal a laptop computer from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office and sell it to Russian intelligence, court documents revealed Monday.

Riley June Williams was charged with disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds with the intent to disturb a session of Congress and other charges after her former flame turned her in.

William's ex, who was described in Special Agent Jonathan Lund's charging document as W 1 (witness one), called the FBI and told them she "intended to send the computer device to a friend in Russia, who then planned to sell the device to SVR, Russia’s foreign intelligence service.”

The woman has fled and purged social media accounts.

Fox Settled a Lawsuit Over Seth Rich Lies. But It Insisted on One Unusual Condition.

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/17/business/media/fox-news-seth-rich-settlement.html

On Oct. 12, 2020, Fox News agreed to pay millions of dollars to the family of a murdered Democratic National Committee staff member, implicitly acknowledging what saner minds knew long ago: that the network had repeatedly hyped a false claim that the young staff member, Seth Rich, was involved in leaking D.N.C. emails during the 2016 presidential campaign. (Russian intelligence officers, in fact, had hacked and leaked the emails.)

Fox’s decision to settle with the Rich family came just before its marquee hosts, Lou Dobbs and Sean Hannity, were set to be questioned under oath in the case, a potentially embarrassing moment. And Fox paid so much that the network didn’t have to apologize for the May 2017 story on FoxNews.com.

But there was one curious provision that Fox insisted on: The settlement had to be kept secret for a month — until after the Nov. 3 election. The exhausted plaintiffs agreed.

Why did Fox care about keeping the Rich settlement secret for the final month of the Trump re-election campaign? Why was it important to the company, which calls itself a news organization, that one of the biggest lies of the Trump era remain unresolved for that period? Was Fox afraid that admitting it was wrong would incite the president’s wrath? Did network executives fear backlash from their increasingly radicalized audience, which has been gravitating to other conservative outlets?

Fox News and its lawyer, Joe Terry, declined to answer that question when I asked last week. And two people close to the case, who shared details of the settlement with me, were puzzled by that provision, too.

Traitor Trump is impeached a second time for inciting his failed coup to overthrow the US government

Hold the traitors accountable.

https://apnews.com/article/trump-impeachment-vote-capitol-siege-0a6f2a348a6e43f27d5e1dc486027860

WASHINGTON (AP) — A majority of the U.S. House has voted to impeach President Donald Trump for a second time, just a week after he encouraged loyalists to “fight like hell” against election results — a speech that was followed by a mob of his supporters storming the U.S. Capitol. The House vote on an article of impeachment for “incitement of insurrection” was still underway Wednesday afternoon.

During debate before the vote, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked Republicans and Democrats to “search their souls.” Trump would be the first American president to be impeached twice.

Trump “must go,” Pelosi said. “He is a clear and present danger to the nation we all love.”

Actual removal seems unlikely before the Jan. 20 inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. A spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the Republican leader would not agree to bring the chamber back immediately, all but ensuring a Senate trial could not begin at least until Jan. 19.

Still, McConnell did not rule out voting to convict Trump in the event of a trial. In a note to his fellow Republican senators just before the House was to begin voting, he said he is undecided.

“While the press has been full of speculation, I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate,” McConnell wrote.

In the House, the momentum for action has been unstoppable.

The impeachment proceedings came one week after a violent, pro-Trump mob breached the U.S. Capitol, sending lawmakers into hiding and revealing the fragility of the nation’s history of peaceful transfers of power. The riot has also forced a reckoning among some Republicans, who have stood by Trump throughout his presidency and largely allowed him to spread false attacks against the integrity of the 2020 election.

China builds 1,500-room hospital in five days amid COVID surge

China is throwing up instant hospitals again to deal with its latest surge of COVID-19 patients.

https://nypost.com/2021/01/16/china-builds-1500-room-hospital-in-5-days-amid-covid-19-surge/

A 1,500-room hospital to treat people with the coronavirus was finished Saturday after just five days of construction. The hospital is one of six with a total of 6,500 rooms being built in Nangong, south of Beijing in Hebei province, The Associated Press reported. Another 3,000-room hospital is under construction in Shijiazhuang, the capital of the Hebei province.

After largely containing the virus that emerged in the central city of Wuhan in December 2019, China is seeing a new wave of infections that it apparently expects to get worse. A total of 645 people are currently being treated in Nangong, the state-run Xinhua News Agency said. Virus clusters were also found in Beijing and other provinces.

The speed at which the new hospitals are being built echoes the six-day effort that built several hospitals in Wuhan last January and February.

The government said the latest cases are spreading unusually fast, and blamed the latest surge on infected people or goods from abroad. “It is harder to handle,” a government statement said, according to The Independent. “Community transmission already has happened when the epidemic is found, so it is difficult to prevent.”

Also Saturday, the city government of Beijing said travelers arriving in the Chinese capital from abroad would be required to undergo an additional week of “medical monitoring” after a 14-day quarantine but gave no details.

Nationwide, the Health Commission reported 130 new confirmed cases in the 24 hours through midnight Friday. It said 90 of those were in Hebei.

Because we can sue Ford everytime someone drunk drives and we can sue victorinox whenever someone is stabbed. This is an attempt to kill gun manufacturers via lawyer fees for frivolous lawsuits. Gun makers are liable for if their product blows up and harms the user due to not being safe.

The United States will NEVER AGAIN be able to tell the world that we are the paragon of democracy

No.763414 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Countries often on the receiving end of criticism by Washington for falling short of democratic ideals have used the chaos in the Capitol as an opportunity to tell the U.S. it should practice what it preaches.

https://www.newsweek.com/america-adversaries-capitol-chaos-failure-democracy-1559738

After supporters of President Donald Trump broke into and ransacked the government building, scenes of the clashes, tear gas and bullets fired led officials in Russia, China and Iran to question how the U.S. could still consider itself an exporter of democracy.

Russian foreign affairs spokeswoman Maria Zakharova posted on her Facebook page a comment by a user that said: "The United States will never again be able to tell the world that we are the paragon of democracy."

Zakharova then started a Facebook post by saying it was no business of the Kremlin to comment on the internal affairs of the U.S.—before going on to do just that.

"We reiterate that the electoral system in the United States is archaic, it does not meet modern democratic standards," she wrote in the post, adding that such a system "creates opportunities for multiple violations, and the American media has become a tool for political struggle."

"This was largely the cause of the division of society now observed in the United States," she added.

Earlier, Russia's first deputy ambassador to the United Nations, Dmitry Polyanskiy, described the scenes as "Maidan-style," referring to the popular uprising that ousted the Kremlin-friendly President Viktor Yanukovych in 2014 which Putin claimed was sponsored by the U.S.

"Some of my friends ask whether someone will distribute crackers to the protesters," Polyanskiy tweeted, a mocking reference to then-U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland who offered food to demonstrators in Kyiv.
