WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden is planning to sign executive actions on police reform as early as this month, three people familiar with the plans said, as his administration seeks to unilaterally jumpstart an issue that’s a top priority for a key constituency. The executive actions would follow Biden’s uphill battle to advance voting rights legislation, and could coincide with a similar effort by some Democratic lawmakers to revive the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, which stalled on Capitol Hill after failed attempts to craft a bipartisan measure. The focus on police reforms is part of what appears to


He plans to enact by edict the George Floyd Act to coincide with Black History Month. All of his issues are stalled because they are wildly unpopular with a majority of Americans.

So he's going to sign an executive order to defund the police? Really? He's just virtue signaling. There is nothing he can do. Everyone now realizes (too late) he's not the moderate experienced statesman the press pushed on us. He's a senile corrupt America hater. Everyone knows it. His party is falling apart. Can't pass -anything-. 25+ of his party are stepping out and not running again. Polls are historically bad by every measure and metric. They can't even overload them with leftists anymore to fake up good numbers. It's over for Joe. We're just waiting for November while he thrashes around and his puppet master have him give horrible and hateful speeches describing over half the country as terrorists. Bye Joe.

Another pandering divisive promise that can't be passes legislatively because it has no merits. Typical of Joe Biden, the worse the idea the more determined he becomes to push something through by executive order because it can't pass on it's own merits. This seems to be a common problem with Democrats legislation.

New York - Americans shopped less in December, causing the first drop in retail sales since the summer. Sales dropped 1.9% compared with November, adjusted for seasonal swings, the Census Bureau reported Friday. The decline in sales coincided with the surge in Covid cases due to the highly infectious Omicron variant. In July, the last time sales dropped, it was on the back of cases rising due to the Delta variant. Restaurants and bars registered a 0.8% decline in sales in December as people stayed home to protect themselves against the virus, for example. But there was more at play than

“Annus horribilis,” a Latin term that means “horrible year” is a term once famously deployed by the Queen of England to describe 1992, a tumultuous year upon which she declared she would not regard fondly. Given current trends, the same label may yet apply to the year 2022, as inflationary pressures scorch U.S. consumers at a rate not seen in decades, souring the political fortunes of a U.S. president barely a year into his term. It’s also conspiring to make a tough job even tougher for the Federal Reserve chairman he’s recommending for a second term. On Wednesday, data showed

Inflation has become one of the top economic issues in the U.S., and the Biden administration is acting accordingly with various policy actions. U.S. consumer prices rose 0.5% in December and 7.0% on a year-over-year basis, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. It's the fastest rate since 1982. Two of the biggest drivers of price spikes over 2021 have been in food and energy which is likely the reason the White House has focused on both of those sectors both for inflation as well as antitrust reasons. Tying the two issues together is not without critics, even among Democrats.

President Joe Biden was not making a 'human' comparison between opponents of his voter rights push with racists and segregationists in a speech this week, said the White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Friday. Rather he simply meant to compare the actions of those who opposed reform with the likes of George Wallace and other notorious figures. The clean-up came after critics accused Biden of divisive rhetoric, and the president has since seen his initiative collapse as two hold-out Democratic senators said they could not support his plan to change Senate rules in order to pass the legislation.

Operation Lone Star was created by Abbott amidst a wave of illegal immigrants from Central America crossing the US-Mexico border.

The ruling could see the initiative stifled with attorneys saying that it could open a path for other immigrants to challenge their detention.(Snip)On Thursday, Judge Jan Soifer ruled in favor of Jesus Alberto Guzman Curipoma, an Ecuadorian engineer arrested in September and charged with criminal trespassing.
