Biden intends to run for reelection in 2024, Psaki says

President Biden intends to run for reelection in 2024, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed Monday, following a flurry of reports on discussions among Democrats about whether he would follow through on a bid for a second term.

"That’s his intention," Psaki told reporters, confirming reports that Biden has been telling advisers and staff he plans to run again in 2024.

The Washington Post reported over the weekend that Biden and his closest advisers have been reassuring allies in recent days that he plans to seek a second term. That report followed a Politico piece last week about positioning among other Democrats who may be interested in running for president should Biden decline to run for reelection

HK's brand new China-style elections

No.968865 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hong Kong is gearing up to hold its first Legislative Council (LegCo) election under a revamped “patriots only” system decreed by Beijing, after years of unprecedented turbulence since the last election in 2016.

Democratic lawmakers have been disqualified or quit over oath-taking controversies, anti-extradition bill protests raged for months in 2019, and a Beijing-drafted national security law last year saw a major clampdown on the pro-democracy camp and civil society groups.

FBI terrorizes family of mom who protested local school board

No.964019 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
An FBI SWAT team raided the home of an activist mother of three in Colorado on Tuesday, Nov. 16, knocking down her door, bursting into the house with guns and handcuffing her while she was homeschooling her children.

This is the first known case of the federal government making good on its promise to not only intimidate but actually carry out a raid on a mom who was involved in her local school board politics, said Brannon Howse, who interviewed Sherronna Bishop at Lindell TV Wednesday night.

The U.S. Department of Justice and Attorney General Merrick Garland issued an Oct. 4 memorandum directing federal, state and local law enforcement to look for parents to prosecute nationwide who may have made “threats” and made “harassing” phone calls to school board members nationwide, equating such parents to domestic terrorists.

Now a mother, Sherronna Bishop of Grand Junction, Colorado, has felt the brute force of the FBI’s heavily armed SWAT unit used against her family.
She was at home with her three children Tuesday morning when she heard someone pounding on the front door. She said the officers “manhandled” her 18-year-old daughter, pulling her up the stairs by her hoodie, while another officer put her in handcuffs. They proceeded to search the entire house.

Besides being a frequent attendee at her local school board meetings, Bishop has also been active in the voter integrity movement in her state and locality. She runs the website, and on that site she features an article and video under the title We the Parents: How Did We Get Here?

She said she has not been guilty of anything but speaking her mind in accordance with her First Amendment rights.

“This is still the United States of America, where we are able to state what we think and we believe,” she told Howse. “There was some pounding on my door.

Trump threatened to start his own political party in tense clash with RNC on his last day in office

No.957953 ViewReplyOriginalReport

In an angry conversation on his final day as president, Donald Trump told the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee he was leaving the GOP and creating his own political party -- and that he didn't care if the move would destroy the Republican Party, according to a new book by ABC News Chief Washington Correspondent Jonathan Karl.

Trump only backed down when Republican leaders threatened to take actions that would have cost Trump millions of dollars, Karl writes his upcoming book, "Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show."

The book gives a detailed account of Trump's stated intention to reject the party that elected him president and the aggressive actions taken by party leaders to force him to back down.

The standoff started on Jan. 20, just after Trump boarded Air Force One for his last flight as president.

Kyle Rittenhouse: Calls for calm after US teen cleared of murder

No.965900 ViewReplyOriginalReport
As a Portlander, I don't recall seeing (or even hearing) about any riots this time.
>There have been calls for calm in the US after a teenager who shot dead two people during racial unrest last year was cleared of all charges.

>Kyle Rittenhouse, 18, argued he was acting in self-defence when he shot the men and injured a third in Wisconsin.

>The verdict on Friday, which followed a high-profile trial that divided the US, sparked protests in some cities.

>But politicians, including President Joe Biden, and families of the victims have urged restraint.

>"What we need right now is justice, not more violence," lawyers for the family of Gaige Grosskreutz, who was shot and injured by Mr Rittenhouse, said in a statement.

>"I urge everyone to express their views peacefully, consistent with the rule of law," Mr Biden told reporters outside the White House.

>Despite the calls for calm, a riot was declared by police in the city of Portland, Oregon, on Friday evening as some 200 people broke windows and threw objects.

>There were also protests in Chicago and New York, but they were relatively low-key compared to the widespread civil unrest that the US had seen previously.
