    A coalition of tech and health organizations including Oracle, Microsoft, and the Mayo Clinic, is reportedly working to develop a digital COVID-19 vaccination passport that would allow businesses, airlines, and governments to check if individuals have received the vaccine.

The coalition includes tech giants such as Microsoft and Oracle, along with the Mayo Clinic. On Thursday, the Vaccination Credential Initiative announced...
  • Ron DeSantis: Conservative Censorship ‘Probably the Most Important Legislative Issue’

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Thursday named addressing the censorship of conservatives and conservative viewpoints as a top legislative issue to “get right” moving forward. DeSantis, an ally of President Trump, spoke at the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Policy Orientation in Austin, Texas, on Thursday and said that the country must “really think deeply about if we are a disfavored class based on our principles, based on having conservative views, based on being a Christian, based on whatever you can say that is not favored in Silicon Valley.”

  • REPORT: Mike Pence Calls Kamala Harris, Congratulates Her On Victory

    Daily Caller ^ | 1/15/20201 | Anders Hagstrom
    Vice President Mike Pence called Vice-President Elect Kamala Harris to congratulate her on her victory and impending assumption of his office Friday, the Associated Press reported. Pence reportedly both congratulated Harris and offered his assistance in the transition process, something sitting vice presidents typically do immediately following Election Day. President Donald Trump has still not formally conceded the election to President-Elect Joe Biden, nor has he given Biden a call. Pence has grown increasingly distant from Trump since the president attempted to pressure him into rejecting the Electoral College certification of Biden’s victory, something Pence isn’t capable of doing under...

  • How to get away with murder in Philadelphia(Blame Trump)

    Broad and Liberty ^ | 01/14/2021 | A. Benjamin Mannes:
    In 2020, the city of Philadelphia exceeded its highest number of homicides since 1990, with the official total being 499. To put this into a national perspective, consider that Houston had almost 100 fewer murders than Philadelphia despite having 782,000 more people. And New York had 37 fewer murders than Philadelphia despite having 6,861,000 more people. While these types of chilling statistics have normally been met with an immediate change in law enforcement policies and criminal justice leadership, the mayor, police commissioner, district attorney, and media establishment in Philadelphia seem more concerned with controlling the narrative than making communities safer....

  • Hirono: One Goal of Impeachment Is to Prevent Trump from Ever Holding Public Office Again

    Thursday during an appearance on “CNN Tonight,” Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said while she was skeptical Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was going to work toward whipping his members to convict President Donald Trump in impeachment proceedings, she argued the effort was still important to prevent a future Trump run for president. Hirono told CNN’s Don Lemon this impeachment bid was different from the failed effort from Democrats a year ago.

    Former Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said Friday on ABC’s “The View” that all the Republican senators who forwarded President Donald Trump’s claims there was “wide-scale voter fraud” in the 2020 presidential election knew it was a “big lie.” Co-host Sunny Hostin asked, “Senator Flake, the Capitol riots were the result of the false election fraud claims that you’ve said Republicans never really believed, but pushed for, quote, ‘rank opportunism.’ Do you think Republican senators like Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz bear some responsibility for inciting the insurrection? Should they be expelled in your view, held accountable somehow?”

    US president-elect Joe Biden has been given his new official presidential Twitter account, but has been forced to start it with zero followers. The Biden campaign is unhappy with the move, which marks a change from the previous transition from Barack Obama. The new account, @PresElectBiden, will transform into the official @POTUS (President of the United States) one on inauguration day on 20 January. In its first six hours online it gained nearly 400,000 followers. Mr Biden's own account has 24 million followers. His team has also registered new accounts - @FLOTUSBiden for the future first lady, Jill Biden, and...
  • Mike Pence calls Kamala Harris to offer congratulations

    Vice President Mike Pence has called his soon-to-be successor Kamala Harris to offer his congratulations, according to two people familiar with the conversation. It’s the first known contact between the elected members of the outgoing and incoming administrations. President Donald Trump has not reached out to President-elect Joe Biden and has repeatedly questioned the legitimacy of Biden’s win. But Pence has become an unexpected defender of Biden’s. The vice president resisted pressure from Trump to object to the Democrat’s election win while presiding over Congress’ certification of the Electoral Vote count last week. Pence will also attend Biden’s Jan. 20...
  • An increase to a $15 minimum wage marks a core component of Biden’s new stimulus plan

    Business Insider ^ | January 15, 2021 | Ayelet Sheffey
    President-elect Joe Biden's newly unveiled stimulus plan includes a federal minimum wage increase to $15 an hour, although the measure is likely to face pushback in Congress. Currently set at $7.25 an hour, Biden moved to nearly double the country's minimum wage in his $1.9 trillion economic relief package. The plan would also include the elimination of separate minimum-wage thresholds for workers who receive tips and workers with disabilities — a statement that received wide support due to its inclusivity of all workers. "No one working 40 hours a week should live below the poverty line," Biden said in a...

    A pro-President Trump heavy metal guitarist has been identified as one of the US Capitol rioters, according to a report. Multiple sources told the Indianapolis Star Wednesday that one of the suspects in the deadly Jan. 6 siege is Jon Schaffer, a founding member of a Florida-based heavy metal band called Iced Earth who is originally from central Indiana. Schaffer has not been charged with a federal crime as of early Friday, an FBI source confirmed to The Post. But several people have identified him as the man seen with his mouth agape in an FBI poster seeking out the...
