‘Obamacare’ survives: Supreme Court dismisses big challenge

By MARK SHERMAN WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court dismissed a major challenge to the Obama era health care law on Thursday, turning aside an effort by Republican-led states to throw out the law that provides insurance coverage for millions of Americans. The justices, by a 7-2 vote, left the entire law intact in ruling that Texas, other GOP-led states and two individuals had no right to bring their lawsuit in federal court. The Biden administration says 31 million people have health insurance b...

Supreme Court dismisses challenge to Obama era health law

By MARK SHERMAN WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has dismissed a challenge to the Obama era health care law, preserving insurance coverage for millions of Americans. The justices, by a 7-2 vote, left the entire law intact Thursday in ruling that Texas, other Republican-led states and two individuals had no right to bring their lawsuit in federal court. The Biden administration says 31 million people have health insurance because of the law popularly known as “Obamacare.” The law’s major provi...

‘Official’ ballot box battle from the 2020 election might spark a new state law

State Sen. Tom Umberg is confident that if the bill he’s pitching as a way to boost voter protections had been in place last fall, someone from the California Republican Party would be facing criminal penalties today. But as it stands, the issue Democrat Umberg hopes to fix — the clear labeling of ballot drop boxes — remains a legal gray area, with nobody of either political party facing legal problems connected to drop boxes from the 2020 election. The incident that got Umberg interested in the...

US rolls back Trump-era asylum rules for violence victims

By Amy Taxin | Associated Press The U.S. government on Wednesday ended two Trump administration policies that made it harder for immigrants fleeing violence to qualify for asylum, especially Central Americans. Attorney General Merrick Garland issued a new policy saying immigration judges should cease following the Trump-era rules that made it tough for immigrants who faced domestic or gang violence to win asylum in the United States. The move could make it easier for them to win their cases for ...

By JONATHAN LEMIRE, VLADIMIR ISACHENKOV and AAMER MADHANI GENEVA (AP) — President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin concluded their summit on Wednesday with an agreement to return their nations’ ambassadors to their posts in Washington and Moscow and a plan to begin work toward replacing the last remaining treaty between the two countries limiting nuclear weapons.

Just as most of California’s restaurants got the official go-ahead to reopen more broadly Tuesday, the operators of a Burbank bar and grill who refused to close when coronavirus lockdowns shuttered much of the region have been evicted.

A Sheriff’s Department spokesman said ...

LA City Councilman Mike Bonin served recall notice

Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Bonin was served with a recall notice on Tuesday, June 15, making him the second progressive council member to be the target of a recall effort in less than a week. “This recall campaign is an extravagant waste of taxpayer money, a thinly disguised attempt to derail my efforts to provide real solutions to our homelessness crisis, and the latest in a series of recall attempts to silence strong progressive voices,” Bonin said in a statement released Tuesday afterno...

Dysfunction, infighting grip Proud Boys in wake of Capitol riot

By Marshall Cohen | CNN A private Proud Boys audio chat that was made public Tuesday shows how the right-wing group fell into dysfunction and finger-pointing as its members got arrested after the US Capitol riot.

The FBI, which had seized Nordean’s cell phone, found the audio clips on the Telegram app and produced the transcript. Prosecutors ga...

Biden arrives in Geneva for meeting with Putin

By Aamer Madhani, Jonathan Lemire and Lorne Cook | Associated Press GENEVA — Buoyed by days of partnership-building sessions with America’s democratic allies, Joe Biden arrived in Geneva on Tuesday for the most-watched and tensest part of his first European tour as president: talks with Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

California drought sharpens perpetual water conflict

California never has enough water to meet all demands and even when supplies are relatively robust there’s a triangular competition over their allocation. Farmers, municipal users and environmental advocates vie for shares of water that has been captured by California’s extensive network of dams and reservoirs. Their battles are waged in the state Capitol, in Washington, in regulatory agencies and in the courts and over time, the trend has been a subtle shift of supplies from long-dominant agric...

Greater Idaho, the latest split-state proposal

It’s no secret that plenty of folks in California’s rural northern counties would love to leave the Golden State and form one of their own – the most persistent such plan has been called the State of Jefferson since the notion first appeared in the 1940s. Rural residents in counties from Lassen to Lake have long felt dominated in setting policies affecting their rivers, timber and other essentials by the urban masses of the San Francisco Bay area and Southern California. This feeling took off in...

California’s bullet train doesn’t deserve a cent of federal funding

California’s bullet train money pit doesn’t deserve a single cent of taxpayer money.  But last week, the federal government restored $1 billion in federal funding for the project the Trump administration attempted to pull back. The decision was a settlement between the United States Department of Transportation and the state of California, which filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration’s efforts. “This settlement is an important step in advancing an economically transformational project ...

Summer and enrichment programs critical to youth most affected by COVID

Summer is here and thousands of families across California are wondering what’s next. For many, putting their children through more of the same online distance learning that took place during the last 15 months of school closures, isn’t an option. Learning loss, though important, is less critical than social development, or addressing the holistic losses and ongoing needs many families experienced as a result of the global pandemic. Community-based organizations with a track record of providing ...

McConnell previews potential Supreme Court opposition

By Clare Foran | CNN Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Monday that if his party regains the majority in 2022 it’s “highly unlikely” he would let President Joe Biden confirm a Supreme Court vacancy if one opened up in 2024, and was non-committal when asked about an opening at the end of 2023. “I think in the middle of a presidential election, if you have a Senate of the opposite party of the president, you have to go back to the 1880s to find the last time a vacancy was filled. So I ...

Biden follows Trump’s mistaken lead on tariffs

There is a surprising commonality between the trade policies of Presidents Joe Biden and Donald Trump. In June 2020, President Trump ordered an investigation into the digital services taxes that several countries had imposed on foreign companies providing services over the internet. President Biden continued this investigation; and this month, it concluded with the announcement that 25% tariffs would be imposed on certain products from Austria, India, Italy, Spain, Turkey, and the UK. However, t...

Knesset approves new coalition, ending Netanyahu’s long rule

By JOSEPH KRAUSS JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s parliament approved a new coalition government on Sunday that sent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu into the opposition after a record 12 years in office and a political crisis that sparked four elections in two years. Naftali Bennett, the head of a small ultranationalist party, was sworn in as prime minister after a narrow 60-59 vote in parliament. But if he wants to keep the job, he will have to maintain an unwieldy coalition of parties from the poli...

Kamala Harris’ trip borders on disaster

Vice President Kamala Harris made her first foreign trip last week, traveling south of the border to Guatemala and Mexico to address the huge surge of illegal migrants at our southern border. The trip did not get off to a good start. The landing gear on Air Force Two didn’t properly retract forcing the vice president’s plane to return to Joint Base Andrews minutes after takeoff. “We all said a little prayer,” said the vice president as she boarded her backup plane.
