A commemorative display is currently available for visitors to view in Annenberg Court featuring items from President Nixon’s...

    West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin (D) on Tuesday hailed the anniversary of the Inflation Reduction Act, the landmark law he co-authored in secret negotiations with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) a year ago that then became a major point of contention between Manchin and President Biden. “The Inflation Reduction Act is one of the most historic pieces of legislation passed in decades, and we are already seeing real results in West Virginia,” Manchin said in a statement, claiming the law has reduced the nation’s debt by $238 billion.

    (AP) The Black Lives Matter movement hits a milestone on Thursday, marking 10 years since its 2013 founding in response to the acquittal of the man who fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Gunned down in a Florida gated community where his father lived in 2012, Martin was one of the earliest symbols of a movement that now wields influence in politics, law enforcement and broader conversations about racial progress in and outside the U.S. BLM activists and organizations plan to mark a decade of the movement with in-person and virtual events. Calls to action include a renewed push to defund...

    On Monday, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) used the occasion of the seventh anniversary of the Orlando Pulse attack to push gun control that the Orlando Pulse attacker passed in order to acquire his guns. The Pulse attack occurred on June 12, 2016, and the next day CBS News reported that the attacker had passed a background check for the two guns he carried during the attack, a rifle and a handgun. Despite his passage of a background check and waiting period, Rep. Pelosi used the seventh anniversary of the attack to push background checks.

    Tributes have poured in for slain gorilla Harambe on the seventh anniversary of his death - after he was killed when a toddler fell into his enclosure at Cincinnati zoo. A four-year-old boy fell into the enclosure just minutes before the 400-pound animal was fatally shot. At the time, authorities said the boy crawled past the railing and fell 10 feet into the gorilla's habitat, where he spent more than 10 minutes. The worldwide attention that followed the death of Harambe sparked thousands of memes and parody videos, making the ape a pop culture phenomenon. And seven years later, people...

    President Joe Biden will travel to the United Kingdom and Ireland this month, marking the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday accord, the White House said on Wednesday. The US-brokered Good Friday Agreement helped end sectarian violence in Ireland. Biden will first travel to Belfast, Northern Ireland, which is part of the UK, from April 11-12 “to mark the tremendous progress since the signing of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement 25 years ago” and to underscore US readiness to support Northern Ireland’s economic potential, the White House said. Biden then will travel to the Republic of Ireland from April 12-14. Signed...

    President Joe Biden on Thursday celebrated the 13th anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, an expansion of government-subsidized health insurance that he said had “changed America” but is under threat from his Republican opponents. Foreshadowing a major theme of what is expected to be his bid for a second term in 2024, Biden said he was working to lower costs in the notoriously expensive US healthcare system while fending off Republican pressure to cut government funding. “Even now, MAGA Republicans in Congress are intent on repealing the Affordable Care Act,” Biden told a White House celebration event, referring to the...

    A defiant Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky marked the somber anniversary of the Russian invasion by vowing to bring his country to victory as battles raged on in the east with no end in sight to the conflict. At a solemn ceremony on St. Sophia Square in Kyiv, a visibly emotional Zelensky handed out medals to soldiers and families of those killed and held back tears when a military band played the national anthem under Ukraine’s yellow-and-blue national flag fluttering in the wind. “We have become one family. There are no more strangers among us. Ukrainians today are all fellows. Ukrainians...

    20 YEARS AGO — Just the other day, I was sitting in my living room when I heard a loud bang from the basement. Undoubtedly, it was one of my kids destroying yet another piece of our home — but I'll never know. That's because the noise made me turn my head, resulting in me hurting my back. Yes, a head turn can now hurt my back. When I was a kid, I'd ride my bike off a shed roof and hit the ground like a satellite returning to Earth's atmosphere. I'd then pop up, grab a popsicle and go...

    The Biden administration on Thursday marked the 30th anniversary of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) by urging expansion of the provisions guaranteed by the law and inviting former President Clinton, who signed it in 1993, to speak at the White House. President Biden was also joined by Vice President Harris to commemorate the signing of the FMLA in the White House’s East Room. The law requires certain employers to provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave if employees are sick, have a new child in their household or are taking care of a sick family member, without...

    President Biden is set to mark the second anniversary of the Jan. 6 attack at the U.S. Capitol on Friday, putting the spotlight on individuals who have stood up for democracy amid discord among House Republicans, some of whom continue to downplay the riot. Biden will deliver remarks from the East Room of the White House. His speech will focus on those who stood up for democracy two years ago as rioters descended on the Capitol to try to stop the certification of the 2020 election results. Biden is expected to award the Presidential Citizens Medal, a major civilian honor,...

    President Joe Biden (D) marked the tenth anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School attack by pushing for a ban on “assault weapons” and “high capacity” magazines. He released a statement in which he claimed Americans should feel “societal guilt” for having gone this long without banning AR-15s, AK-47s, and other commonly owned firearms which Democrats label “assault weapons. Biden then pointed to the gun control he signed during the summer–the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act–and moved on to push for more gun control now:

    The 100th anniversary of the late cartoonist Charles Schulz's birthday came and went last week without any notice anywhere, that I saw. And so, with thanks to Mark, I pen my own little tribute here to one of the great creative geniuses in American history. If you were young at any time between 1950 (when Schulz first began publishing his comic strip Peanuts) and 2000, when Schulz died at the age of 77, you grew up in a world in which everyone read the latest Peanuts comic strip (particularly in the US and Canada) as part of their daily newspaper...
