Expecting trouble, Washington locks down ahead of inauguration

WASHINGTON — All through downtown Washington, the primary sound for several blocks was the beeping of forklifts unloading more fencing. There were no cars or scooters and seemingly no tourists Wednesday, just the occasional jogger and multiple construction crews at work. The U.S. Capitol that proved such a soft target last week was visible only through lines of tall, black fence. Two blocks from the White House, a group of uniformed National Guard troops emerged from a tour bus and headed into a...

By Alan Fram and Andrew Taylor | Associated Press WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is moving abruptly away from President Donald Trump, telling people that he thinks Trump perpetrated impeachable offenses.

By Dakin Andone | CNN In the wake of Wednesday’s attack on the Capitol building by a pro-Trump mob, US elected officials, world leaders and commentators have condemned the actions of the President and those who participated.

Election could move California further left on taxes, race

By MICHAEL R. BLOOD LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tuesday’s election will test the boundaries of California’s left-leaning politics as a new generation of state voters is being asked to roll back affirmative action and property tax laws put in place decades ago. California is one of the nation’s most Democratic states — the party holds every statewide office, dominates the Legislature and congressional delegation, and outnumbers registered Republicans by nearly 2-to-1. The state is famous — or notorious — ...

President Donald Trump paid just $750 in federal income taxes the year he ran for president and in his first year in the White House, according to a report Sunday in The New York Times. Trump, who has fiercely guarded his tax filings and is the only president in modern times not to make them public, paid no federal income taxes in 10 of the past 15 years. He campaigned for office as a billionaire real estate mogul and successful businessman. Speaking at a news conference at the White House, Trum...

Hillary Clinton returns to DNC championing women in politics

By SARA BURNETT | Associated Press CHICAGO — After more than four decades in public life, Hillary Clinton will return to the Democratic National Convention to cement her legacy as a champion of women in politics. Clinton, who lost the presidency to Donald Trump in 2016 despite winning the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes, is a complicated figure in American political culture. She’s despised by many Republicans and viewed warily by some progressives who are increasingly assertive in shaping...

California, Florida, Texas would lose House seats with Trump order

By MIKE SCHNEIDER | Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla. — If President Donald Trump succeeds in getting immigrants who are illegally in the country excluded from being counted in the redrawing of U.S. House districts, California, Florida and Texas would end up with one less congressional seat each than if every resident were counted, according to an analysis by a think tank. Without that population, California would lose two seats instead of one, Florida would gain one seat instead of two and Texas w...

Watchdogs: Treasury too secretive on small business loans

By Anne D’Innocenzio, The Associated Press The Trump administration has relented to public pressure and pledged to provide more details about which small businesses received loans from a $600 billion-plus coronavirus aid program. But government watchdogs say even more transparency is needed to get an accurate picture of who was helped, and who was left out. Under pressure from Democratic lawmakers and government watchdogs, the Treasury Department and the Small Business Administration said Friday...

Garcia’s win in LA-area U.S. House race has emboldened Republicans

California Republicans have been waiting for a turning point and some think it’s finally arrived. The party of Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan has been fading in California for years: Democrats control every statewide office, dominate the Legislature and hold all but eight of the state’s 53 U.S. House seats. The GOP’s deficit in voter registrations: a staggering 4.4 million. But the victory last week of a President Donald Trump-supporting former Navy pilot in a contested U.S. House ra...

Partisan Democrats are obviously holding Joe Biden to a different standard

It is stunning to see emerging profiles in hypocrisy among predominantly Democratic female elected officials who just 18 months ago were proclaiming one must “believe women” in situations of he said-she said, birthing the #MeToo movement. What was hailed as “Believe Women” during the Justice Brent Kavanaugh confirmation hearings when allegations of sexual assault were leveled against him has become diluted to “let her speak (so we can then be done with you)” in the case of the accuser leveling c...

Trump adds 30 days to social distancing guidelines as coronavirus spreads

By ZEKE MILLER WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is extending the voluntary national shutdown for a month as sickness and death from the coronavirus pandemic rise in the U.S. The initial 15-day period of social distancing urged by the federal government expires Monday and Trump had expressed interest in relaxing the national guidelines at least in parts of the country less afflicted by the pandemic.

Census Bureau site goes live as counting begins in earnest

By MIKE SCHNEIDER ORLANDO, Fla. ) — The 2020 census is off and running for much of America now. The U.S. Census Bureau made a soft launch of the 2020 census website on Monday, making its form available online. On Thursday, the Census Bureau will begin mailing out notices far and wide.

Korean immigrants who fought with U.S. in Vietnam would get healthcare under new bill

Jason Hong was just 23 when he left his home in South Korea to join some 325,000 Korean soldiers who would fight as allies alongside American troops throughout the Vietnam War. By the time Hong and other members of his Blue Dragon infantry marine division left the battlefield, in 1969, his hearing was damaged by two years of listening to bombs explode a heartbeat away. And those hearing problems have only worsened now that Hong is a 75-year-old American citizen living in Cerritos. Half a century...
