    New Zealand’s government has extended its nationwide lockdown as COVID-19 cases grow around the world. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Monday said the nation's lockdown will continue until the end of August, adding that new data model shows the current outbreak in the country will peak within the next few days, the Associated Press reported. “We do need more information. We need more certainty. We don’t want to take any risks with delta,” Ardern said, referring to the highly-contagious variant. “If the world has taught us anything, it is to be cautious with this variant of COVID-19.”

    Michigan Gov.

On Tuesday, Whitmer was asked if she will potentially alter her order lifting remaining orders on masks, crowds, and restaurant capacity limits July 1, and she left the door open, WOOD TV reported.

"Today marks a lot of tragedy," O'Donnell, (Snip) "Tragedy comes in threes," O'Donnell said. "Pearl Harbor, Elizabeth Edwards's passing and Barack Obama's announcement of extending the tax cuts, which is good, but also extending the unemployment benefits."

    “I’m going to stay open minded to it,” Landrieu said in an interview with FOX Business. “A one-year tax extension in this economy probably would be good. But we may not be able to afford it and there might not be enough concessions on the other side to make that happen, so we’ll see.” Four other moderate Senate Democrats and one Independent, Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT), have publicly called for extending the all of the Bush tax cuts into next year or longer. Senate Republicans, who favor keeping all of them permanent, said this week that other Democratic senators have...

    RUSH: Sarah Palin was not finished. On Fox News Sunday, she said it was "idiotic" to let the Bush tax cuts expire. An interesting piece today in Newsweek magazine. Fareed Zakaria has a piece and E.J. Dionne -- no, it's not E.J. Dionne. Well, it might have been last week, but you know, the subject of whether the Bush tax cuts should sunset -- should expire in December or be extended for everybody -- is now the topic de jour. And it's fascinating to read both sides of this. I mean, there is literally no argument, no debate if you're...

    WASHINGTON – The Obama administration supports extending three key provisions of the Patriot Act that are due to expire at the end of the year, the Justice Department told Congress in a letter made public Tuesday. Lawmakers and civil rights groups had been pressing the Democratic administration to say whether it wants to preserve the post-Sept. 11 law's authority to access business records, as well as monitor so-called "lone wolf" terrorists and conduct roving wiretaps. ... As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama said he would take a close look at the law, based on his past expertise in constitutional law....
  • Gates Considers Extending Brigades in Europe

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 30, 2007 – Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates is leaning toward approving a proposal to temporarily hold two Army brigade combat teams in Europe rather than move them to the United States, a defense official said today. Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said that Army Gen. Bantz J. Craddock, commander of U.S. European Command, has proposed a short-term solution that would keep a greater force presence in Europe to accomplish theater security engagement missions. “It’s not a request for an indefinite period,” Whitman said. Four brigades are currently based in Europe: 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment, in Grafenwoehr, Germany; 173rd...
  • Senate panel backs extending seat-belt requirements (more RINOs coming out of the woodwork)

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- A Senate committee advanced a bill Tuesday that would require drivers and all passengers to wear seat belts in trucks, SUVs and cars. After hearing emotional testimony from family members of those killed in crashes, the Senate's public policy committee voted 10-0 to endorse the bill. It now moves to the full Senate, which approved similar legislation last year before it was blocked in a House committee. The bill requires people in front and back seats to buckle up in all vehicles with seat belts, with exceptions for trucks used on farms. People who cannot wear seat...
