Vice President Mike Pence told Breitbart News exclusively on Thursday that the “stakes have never been higher” than the 2020 presidential election in a choice between “leadership” from President Donald Trump and the radical “left” from former Vice President Joe Biden.
GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham appeared to have advance knowledge that Trump was going to commute Roger Stone's prison sentence.
President Trump has expressed that his Democrat opponent has no original thoughts when it comes to handling the economy. While speaking to reporters on Friday, the president slammed presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden for his economic plan.
Reprinted with permission from Alternet With the presidential election less than four months away, more specifics are emerging about the policy agenda of former Vice President Joe Biden — who has been making an effort to unite the centrist and liberal/progressive wings of the Democratic Party. Many on the left were critical of Biden's centrist record during the Democratic presidential primary, including Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. But some liberals and progressives now find themselves warming up to Biden's policy agenda, and Sanders recently told MSNBC that the "compromises" Biden has in mind on health care, the economy and other issues would, if implemented, make him "the most progressive president since FDR." Some of the specifics of Biden's policy agenda are outlined by liberal Washington Post columnist Greg Sargent, who generally likes what he is hearing from the former vice president and ex-U.S. senator. Sargent, in his column, explains that Biden's economic plan "draws a stark contrast with (President Donald) Trump on two fronts — his failure to mobilize a robust federal response to the coronavirus pandemic, and his full-on embrace of GOP plutocracy…. The core of the Biden plan is a pledge to 'use the full power of the federal government' to 'rebuild U.S. domestic manufacturing capacity' and fortify 'supply chains' to ensure availability of 'critical supplies' in 'future crises.' It envisions $700 billion in new spending to stimulate demand for U.S.-manufactured products and on research into clean energy and digital technologies." The "U.S.-manufactured products" part is important. In 2016, "made in the U.S.A." was a key element of Trump's platform — and as conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin noted this week, Biden is making U.S.-based manufacturing a priority. Brian Kilmeade suggests you should be scared of the claim that Joe Biden could be the most progressive president si… https://t.co/CuUweszSSf — Bobby Lewis (@Bobby Lewis)1594294053.0Sargent notes that Biden's "plan would tighten rules to ensure products purchased by the federal government are comprehensively made in the United States. The review would determine supply chain 'vulnerabilities' to reduce dependence on China for — among other things — medical supplies, and create a more robust domestic 'stockpile' and 'manufacturing capacity' in crisis conditions." Samuel Hammond, director of welfare policy at the Niskanen Center, explained: "The Trumpian approach is purely negative: throw tariffs up and hope manufacturing jobs will miraculously return. Biden's approach is to level up American workers and make our supply chains more resilient. Trump just wants to turn back the clock on globalization." One of the many issues that Biden hotly debated with other presidential candidates during the Democratic primary debates was health care. All of the candidates said they wanted universal health coverage, but how they hoped to achieve it varied considerably. Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren proposed abandoning private insurance in favor of a government-operated Medicare-for-all program, while Biden, Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and other centrists argued in favor of an aggressive expansion of the Affordable Care Act of 2010. NBC News reporter Marianna Sotomayor described Biden's health care plan this week as "Affordable Care Act 2.0." The plan would build on Obamacare, according to Sotomayor, and would allow Americans to either keep their private insurance or "buy into" a "Medicare-like" public option. Liberal economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has said that Biden's "major expansion of Obamacare...would probably get us close to universal coverage." The fact is that whatever you may say about Biden's past positions, the policies he's advocating now are remarkably… https://t.co/4TTW0jsOmk — Paul Krugman (@Paul Krugman)1583434794.0Journalist Matthew Yglesias, in Vox, reports that Biden's proposals on housing are receiving positive feedback from "Columbia University scholars" as well as Mary Cunningham, vice president for metropolitan housing and communities policy at the Urban Institute. Cunningham told Vox: "Biden's plan is bold, comprehensive and will go a long way in making sure every American has a home. It's plainly obvious, in the middle of this pandemic, that home is more important than ever." Yglesias writes that according to Columbia scholars, Biden's "housing plan agenda" could "cut child poverty by a third." According to Yglesias, the "centerpiece" of Biden's plan is to "take America's biggest rental assistance program — Section 8 housing vouchers — and make it available to every family who qualifies. The current funding structure leaves out around 11 million people, simply because the pot allocated by Congress is too small." The Vox journalist explains that Stephanie Collyer and Chris Wimer of Columbia University's Center on Poverty and Social Policy, upon analyzing Biden's housing plan, find that "the properly measured poverty rate falls by 22 percent under this proposal, while child poverty falls by 34 percent. Not bad for a policy that would cost just a fraction of Trump's tax cuts."

Rapper and business mogul Kanye West has provided more details about his surprise bid for the presidency in an interview with Forbes. West said that he was OK with the prospect of siphoning off Black voters from Democratic candidate Joe Biden, which could damage Biden's chances of winning in November. "To say that the Black vote is Democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy," West told Forbes. He said that though he no longer supports President Donald Trump, he would not run against him as a Republican. Instead, he said he is creating his own political party: The Birthday Party. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Rapper and business mogul Kanye West told Forbes he no longer supports President Donald Trump and is happy siphoning Black voters off Joe Biden as he discussed his unexpected bid for the 2020 presidency. West's announcement, made via tweet last Saturday, that he was launching a late-stage bid for the presidency made a splash on social media — and was greeted with skepticism in many quarters. In an interview with Forbes, published Wednesday, West gave more detail about his decision to run, telling the magazine: "Like anything I've ever done in my life, I'm doing to win." He told the publication that he would not be running as a Republican or Democrat but creating his own party: The Birthday Party. Some have seen West's run as a plot to weaken Biden's voter base. When asked whether he was helping Trump clinch a second term by taking away Black voters from Joe Biden, he said: "I'm not denying, I just told you. To say that the Black vote is Democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy." However, West was critical of President Donald Trump — for whom he's expressed support in the past. "It looks like one big mess to me," he said of Trump's recent performance as president. "I don't like that I caught wind that he hid in the bunker." But he went on to temper his criticism, saying: "Trump is the closest president we've had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation." He also said he would not run against Trump as a Republican. "I would run as a Republican if Trump wasn't there. I will run as an independent if Trump is there," West told Forbes. West is one of the few celebrities who have expressed support for Trump, and in a recent Wall Street Journal interview likened criticism of his backing of the president to a form of racial profiling. But some have questioned whether Kanye's bid is even serious, pointing out that the star has not filed official papers to declare his candidacy or create a campaign infrastructure. It is already too late for West to file as an independent candidate in four states, as Business Insider reported Saturday. In the Forbes interview, West also dismissed claims that the announcement was a publicity stunt for his new album.

Observed from outer space, the United States is in a revolutionary turmoil. Fires are burning, thousands of people are confronting police and other security forces. There are barricades, banners, posters, and there is rage. Rage is well justified. Grievances run deep, through the veins of a confused and socially insecure population, in both cities and the countryside. Minorities feel and actually are oppressed. Indeed they have been disgracefully oppressed, since the birth of the country, over two centuries ago (see my latest report carried by this magazine).

Space Station)1592944657.0 "In terms of concentration and density and size, it is the most dust we've seen in 50 or 60 years," said Pablo Méndez Lázaro, who is an environmental health specialist with the University of Puerto Rico. The annual natural occurrence is officially called the "Saharan Air Layer." It is comprised of sand, dust, and particulate matter that gets swept up into the atmosphere from the massive Sahara Desert in North Africa. The dust gets trapped in the air, usually in a two-mile thick layer of the atmosphere. The SAL typically begins about a mile above the surface and winds transport it westward, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. "Saharan Air Layer activity usually ramps up in mid-June, peaks from late June to mid-August, and begins to rapidly subside after mid-August," the NOAA said. "The main impacts of the Saharan dust are a whitening of the sky during daylight hours, redder sunsets, and decreased air quality," the National Weather Service said.
