PARIS —Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg started his week in the White House press briefing room promoting a crown jewel of President Biden’s legislative agenda — a landmark public works package that recently passed with bipartisan support. He explained how the legislation would benefit communities of color, where he found little support when he ran for president. Later, the former mayor touted the plan at the COP26 climate summit in Scotland, enjoying a global spotlight. And he posed for photos with former president Barack Obama, smiling as the popular ex-president rested a hand rested on Buttigieg’s shoulder. At the same time

All I read here are a bunch of excuses as to why these two are possibly qualified to be on the top of the ticket down the road. The Post can’t come out and say that these two, Harris and Buttigieg are hopelessly stupid, and beyond them, the Democrats have NOBODY. The only way they can win is by cheating through drop boxes, vote harvesting, and mail-in ballots found in a car trunk at 4:00 A.M. when they are needed.

OMG. Biden touched Pete’s shoulder. The One. The crown prince of the Democrat party. The most wonderful President this underserving country has ever had, actually “rested” his hand on Pete’s shoulder. Pete, you’ve been granted the princely approval of Himself. Don’t blow it.

ya well...had EITHER of those two run instead of Biden? Trump would have won a landslide. Had they not propped Biden up with a 100% "Media ran his entire campaign FOR him while he hid away out of sight", Trump would have won. Had the Dems/Media not panicked, and continued debates, campaign appearances, and Primaries... Bernie would have either won outright, or the decision would have gone to multi-ballots at the Dem convention, and Trump would have won. NOW they are "worried"? The time to worry was before THEY created this Mess.

When we take the House and Senate in Jan 2023, we impeach Biden, Kamala gets a promotion, she will be better than Biden, and we do not give her VP at all. None. So next in the line of succession is the Speaker of the House, a Republican, and if she makes us mad, we impeach her also and the Speaker rises up. She will be better than Biden and the people who say she is stupid etc. are just wanting to leave Biden in for partisan reasons. For the good of the country he must go. As for Buttigieg, everything I need to know about him is he stayed home on paternity leave the last few months, plus, he is an apostate Catholic and they are the worst worst worst anti Catholic bigots. I would rather have Kamala. She might like us for a half an hour every couple of weeks. Buttigieg? No, we are a standing rebuke to his apostasy and he will hate us all the time. Plus does not care about the poor, look at this paternity leave, Go Away.

Worn out by what they see as entrenched dysfunction and lack of focus, key West Wing aides have largely thrown up their hands at Vice President Kamala Harris and her staff -- deciding there simply isn't time to deal with them right now, especially at a moment when President Joe Biden faces quickly multiplying legislative and political concerns. The exasperation runs both ways. Interviews with nearly three dozen former and current Harris aides, administration officials, Democratic operatives, donors and outside advisers -- who spoke extensively to CNN -- reveal a complex reality inside the White House. Many in the vice president's circle fume

The mood was somber in the ballroom at Hilton Hasbrouck Heights. More than 200 Democrats had gathered the night of the election in expectation of landslide party victories across the board. Instead, they watched the unthinkable happen as results rolled in and county Democratic candidates were losing in every race.

Declaring themselves winners, they took to the stage, jubilant. Even then, the numbers on the Bergen County clerk’s website

Wisconsin Judge Bruce Schroeder took some criticism Thursday after requesting during the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial in Kenosha that attendees applaud for the nation’s service members on Veterans Day. During a moment in the day’s proceedings, Schroeder asked if any veterans were present in the courtroom. Only John Black, a use-of-force expert who was later called to the witness stand by the defense, claimed to have served in the military, identifying himself as an Army veteran, The Associated Press reported. "I think we give a round of applause to the people who’ve served our country," Schroeder then said, drawing a

As Vermont reports higher than ever COVID-19 case rates, state health officials have been trying to understand why. How can a state that did so well during the first part of the pandemic — even garnering national recognition — be doing so much worse now? "There is not one simple answer," said Vermont Health Commissioner Dr. Mark Levine during a news conference Tuesday. "But, there are clearly factors that have come together to create the situation that we're in now." Slowing the spread is critical right now to prevent Vermont's hospitals from being overwhelmed with people sick with the virus, Levine said.

HELENA, Mont. — A new map dividing Montana into two congressional districts for the first time in decades was finalized Tuesday, triggering disappointment from Democrats who hoped to craft a different western district that would give them a better chance of winning in an increasingly Republican-dominated state. (Snip) In a bitterly disputed process that played out over several months, Democrats managed to keep liberal college towns Missoula and Bozeman in the western district, but lost the state capital of Helena to the solidly red eastern district.

That breaks the previous record of 108 vessels reported on October 21. The two ports remain clogged despite efforts to speed up the processing of containers amid a surge in consumer demand for goods.

President Joe Biden's climate envoy John Kerry said the United States won’t have coal plants by 2030. “By 2030 in the United States, we won’t have coal,” Kerry said Tuesday during an interview with Bloomberg at the United Nations's COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland. “We will not have coal plants.” The U.S., the world’s largest economy, generates nearly 25% of its electricity from coal despite the rapid retirements of coal plants in recent years that have struggled to compete with cheaper and cleaner natural gas and renewable energy. Kerry’s comment is among the most explicit to-date of a Biden

Reps Liz Cheney (RINO-WY) and Bennie Thompson (D-MS) are seeking criminal charges on Trump’s former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows after he failed to appear before their sham January 6 Committee. The Marxists on the January 6 Committee issued Meadows a subpoena because he was with Trump on January 6. Meadows, like Bannon, defied the subpoena and was instructed by Trump to “respect long-standing principles of executive privilege.” “Mr. Meadows’s actions today—choosing to defy the law—will force the Select Committee to consider pursuing contempt or other proceedings to enforce the subpoena,” Thompson and Cheney, vice chair of the sham panel, said in a statement Friday.
