Progressive Democrats are reeling over President Joe Biden's decision to change the qualifications for student loan forgiveness not to include some non-federal government debts as the administration faces impending lawsuits over the relief plan. The White House quietly announced a change in its student debt forgiveness program on Thursday that could exclude up to 4 million borrowers with private loans backed by the government. The change was so quiet, in fact, that lawmakers weren't even informed of the altering qualifications. Democratic Representative Yvette Clarke said the change need to be 'revisited' to not 'dash' the hopes of people who thought they were receiving relief and now will not.

Why don’t they cancel all the student debt for like BSN Registered Nurses and medical workers on down that professional totem pole who actually make healthcare work, and forget about the people who borrowed a lot of money and did not graduate with productive degrees. Ask Biden that, and he would most likely tell you “that’s not who we are”!

I’m waiting for forgiveness of mortgage. I’ve already paid for my house 3 times because of the mortgage lenders and their immoral usury. I have written Elizabeth warren several times,never hearing from her, not even an acknowledgement of my email.

These people who borrowed the money were smart enough to know they had to pay it back. They owe the money and need to pay their debts. it is not the responsibility of the American taxpayers to bail them out.

This is an illegal ploy to get people to vote Dem in the mid terms. It will be dropped after the mid terms because it won't be needed... and it's illegal. To the surprise of no one conservative.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which is still led by Dr. Anthony Fauci, issued a $3.3 million grant to a research organization run by Fauci's close friend. The new study will investigate bats and other coronaviruses in the wild and will run until August 2027. The organization conducting the study, EcoHealth Alliance, is run by Peter Daszak, who is known to be close to Fauci. In the summer of 2021, emails between Fauci and Daszak leaked. In one, Daszak appeared to express gratitude to Fauci for downplaying the theory that Covid-19 was created in a lab in Wuhan, China.

Fans of the late Steve Irwin have started a petition nominating the television star to replace King Charles III on new $5 bills when they are issued Down Under. Petitioners Vincent Wu and Kirby Miles are driving the move now listed on the Australian Parliament House website to elevate the globally admired zookeeper, conservationist, television personality, wildlife expert, and environmentalist. Queen Elizabeth II was first featured on the first $5 paper note in 1992 and also appeared on Australia’s first $5 polymer note. The late monarch features on the current version and by tradition was due to be replaced by King Charles III.

Scores of Venezuelan migrants in New York City are hopping on vans to head down to Florida for Hurricane Ian clean-up, they told The Post. The migrants had scant information about who they would be working for, but they still piled into vans in Queens that they said were headed to the Sunshine State over the weekend. “They want us for hurricane cleanup, we’d get paid $15 an hour, overtime and $15 for food daily, I think,” said Javier Moreno, 37, noting that a woman named Camila “from an organization” approached him with a flier.

A guest on your show accuses his political opponent of being as dangerous to children as a mass murderer with an AR-15. Surely, you challenge your guest for his outrageous slander. Or not—if you're Jonathan Capehart. On his MSNBC Sunday show, Capehart had on Beto O'Rourke. After losing to Ted Cruz in a senatorial run, then flaming out early in the 2020 Democrat presidential primary, O'Rourke is poised to make it a trifecta of failures, as he trails Gov. Greg Abbott badly in the Texas gubernatorial race.

Still, it’s chilling as hell that Communist China continues to compromise territorial integrity around the world.

For months now, former President Trump has hinted at a potential White House run in 2024, and for months Americans have held their breath waiting for the announcement. In an interview with CBS News, Kellyanne Conway, who managed Trump’s 2016 campaign, said that the former president may make his announcement before Thanksgiving. Trump will “assess the timing of his announcement,” Conway said, adding, “I think before the end of this year.” Conway said that Trump is as “active as anybody” else in the midterm elections, already building support from Americans by rallying in several states throughout the country.

Hundreds of thousands of people were stuck without power and other basic needs days after Hurricane Ian ripped through Florida, as recovery from the deadly storm was estimated to easily cost billions of dollars. First responders were going door-to-door in search of survivors or bodies of people who perished from the Category 4 storm’s whipping winds that topped 150 mph and pounding rain that caused massive flooding. The storm was believed to have killed at least 73 people in the Sunshine State, with another four deaths in North Carolina,

Russian media has shown a chilling sequence of mushroom clouds 'in anticipation of nuclear conflict' amid calls for Putin to 'take drastic measures' to win in Ukraine. Sinister footage aired by NTV highlighted nuclear explosions and the 'Armageddon' aftermath. The slavish channel is owned by the media wing of Gazprom, the Kremlin-obedient energy giant which is now starving the West of Russian gas for the coming winter. The sequence was titled: 'In anticipation of nuclear conflict - how weapons of mass destruction have become part of the geopolitical game.'

Rep. Mark Pocan, a Wisconsin Democrat, is pushing legislation that would establish a national museum of American LGBTQ+ History and Culture in the nation’s capital. The lawmaker has filed bills that would establish a commission to study the potential creation of the museum and house it within the Smithsonian Institution. The eight-member commission would have 18 months to study the viability of creating and constructing the museum in Washington. Mr. Pocan, who is gay, said the LGBT community must be able to tell its stories. “As our community faces unprecedented attacks and attempts to erase our history, we must preserve and protect our stories for future generations,”

Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed a law Friday that will decriminalize jaywalking across California, ending the familiar practice of police handing out tickets to pedestrians on the argument that the law is enforced more often against minorities than other people. The new law, AB 2147, known as the “Freedom to Walk Act,” could bring an end to a cultural difference that has marked otherwise libertine Californians as being uniquely deferential to laws governing pedestrian traffic. The difference between Californians, who ostensibly tend to obey “don’t walk” signals, and urban dwellers elsewhere in the country, who are notoriously defiant when it comes to crossing against traffic signals, was lampooned

WASHINGTON — Republicans are abandoning their long crusade to repeal the Affordable Care Act, making the 2022 election the first in more than a decade that won’t be fought over whether to protect or undo President Barack Obama’s signature achievement. The diminished appetite for repeal means the law — which has extended health care coverage to millions of people and survived numerous near-death experiences in Congress and the courts — now appears safer than ever. With slightly more than a month before the next election, Republicans in Congress and on the campaign trail aren’t making an issue of Obamacare.

'The National Archives has confirmed to the Oversight Committee that they still have not received all presidential records from the Trump White House,' Acting Archivist Debra Steidel Wall said. Wall said the Department of Justice (DOJ) would be consulted about whether 'to initiate an action for the recovery of records unlawfully removed' by White House officials.

German Federal Economy Minister Robert Habeck expressed concern over the looming energy crisis this winter, telling German media that the situation was extremely tense and there is a possibility that Germany may run out of gas. Habeck spoke on Friday, appealing to Germans to reduce their consumption of natural gas ahead of this winter a day after the German government launched a new price break programme to help Germans with the rising costs of energy. The new price break policy will cover 80 per cent of regular consumption in a bid to try and get Germans to use less gas and make the scenario of shortages less likely.

There’s always some mystery in the news that provides a blank page for fantasy thinking. This week’s mystery has initiated a storm of speculation: What happened to cause leaks in Russia’s Nord Stream 1 and 2, designed to send gas to Germany? The speculation runs from rational to delusional. A good example of more rational speculation is by Jed Babbin at the Spectator: He thinks Russia is the most likely suspect: Germany, Sweden, the United States, and other NATO nations would not have attacked the pipelines. There has been some speculation among U.S. conservatives that we were responsible for the pipeline attacks.

But a member of Truss' Cabinet said the government and palace were in agreement about the decision.

Former President Jimmy Carter turned 98 on Saturday and celebrated in Plains, Georgia — where he was born in 1924, while Calvin Coolidge was in office. Carter, who has lived longer than any other president in US history, marked the occasion with his family, including wife Rosalynn, 95. He attended a parade in Plains and watched from a wheelchair. A picture posted by the Carter Center showed Carter smiling and observing the parade from a wheelchair. That evening, he was likely to watch his favorite team, the Atlanta Braves, on television as they battled for the top spot in the National League East, his grandson said.
