Vice President Joe Biden has stated that he will block any Republican plan that could cause economic chaos
In Washington, DC, the clock has just ticked past 4:00. The current situation is as follows:
When former president Donald Trump made racist comments about former transportation secretary Elaine Chao, she spoke out against him. Speaking to Politico, Chao, an Asian American, said, “When I was young, some people deliberately misspelt or mispronounced my name… She went on to say, “He doesn’t seem to get that, and that says a lot more about him than it ever will about Asian Americans.”
President Joe Biden retaliated against Republican fiscal policies and vowed not to allow a national debt default in a speech he gave in Springfield, Virginia on Thursday. The American debt has been accumulating for over 230 years, and now they are threatening to have us default on it. We’ve never done that before… Why, for the love of God, would we, as a nation, throw away all the progress we’ve made in favour of the anarchy they’re advocating? That’s where I’m lost… Not on my watch, I assure you,” he vowed.
In addition, Biden reaffirmed the administration’s commitment to combating global warming by saying, “finally making sure the biggest corporations just begin to pay a little bit. Companies can no longer get away with paying no federal taxes, and those days have come and gone.
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband was the target of an attack, and San Francisco Superior Court Judge Stephen Murphy has ordered the release of the surveillance footage. Murphy ordered the release of audio from police interviews with David DePape, the suspect who broke into Pelosi’s San Francisco home in October and attempted to kidnap the former speaker, as well as footage from police body cameras and recordings of 911 calls.
Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis said in an interview on Thursday that the Republican National Committee needs new leadership. To paraphrase, “I believe it is time for a change and that the RNC needs to inject some fresh ideas and new faces into the party. On the Charlie Kirk Show, DeSantis praised the ideas of attorney and leading challenger to RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel Harmeet Dhillon, saying, “I like what Harmeet Dhillon has said about getting the RNC outside of DC — why would you want to have your headquarters in the most Democrat city in America?”
Former US presidents and their vice presidents have been formally requested to verify if they possess any classified documents or other presidential records held by the National Archives. The request is the latest bizarre development in the ongoing scandal that has entangled Donald Trump, Joe Biden, and Mike Pence.
A source tells the Guardian US that Georgia Republican congresswoman and conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene has “no chance” of becoming Donald Trump’s vice presidential pick in 2024.
Facebook and Instagram owner Meta is reportedly prepared to let Trump continue attacking the results of the 2020 presidential election, which he lost to Joe Biden but claims he really won, on the sites. However, if Trump spreads false information about upcoming elections, such as the presidential election in 2024, then unspecified action will be required to limit his speech. After a two-year suspension, Meta has allowed Trump back onto the platforms, but he has not yet made any new posts.
