But if the administration embarks on policies likely to fail or redound against the nation, corrective action is needed now. Debate over the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill is important. Answers about the economic impact of this spending; what to do about the unspent CARES Act money of some $300 billion; and consequences of this proposed legislation on a future infrastructure bill are not trivial. More important, perhaps, is the administration’s China policies .

They say that “Behind every successful man, there is a strong woman.” They’re wrong. The truth is, behind any successful community — any successful people, or any successful nation — there are countless unheralded and unnamed strong women. All of us have witnessed women standing in the gap and on the front lines, molding and shaping the moments of our lives. As Women’s History Month unfolds, we should pause to consider how women in America have helped to shape our history, individually and as a nation. I think about my grandmothers. Both were sharecroppers who lost their husbands at an early age. They spent their lives picking other people’s cotton and cleaning other people’s houses. Despite their constant struggles, they managed to raise their own children, their grandchildren — and other people’s children. ADVERTISEMENT My grandmothers were frontliners of change. I think about my mother working two jobs for most of my childhood, never letting us see her worry about … [Read more...] about In America, women are frontliners of change
A man who worked on the Keystone XL Pipeline who lost his job after President Joe Biden shut it down said the decision has ended his career. “I spent my whole life learning this craft and this skill and it’s not as easy as somebody might think or people might think to just start all over at 45 years old,” Jason Jernigan said in an interview with Fox News. “I guess I could possibly get a job as a greeter at Walmart, I don’t know.” “I’ve been pipelining for 21 years,” said Jernigan, who a third-generation oil and gas industry worker. “The recent administration has taken my livelihood from me and expecting me to get a job somewhere else,” Jernigan said. “I’ve got my whole life invested in this.” “This is all I know how to do,” Jernigan said. As Breitbart News reported , Biden’s executive order to shut down the pipeline led to thousands of workers losing their jobs and an even higher number when counting jobs directly or indirectly impacted by the pipeline project.

WHITE HOUSE - Rather than talk of bigger walls, the American president did some fence-mending on Monday with his counterpart south of the border. U.S. President Joe Biden, in a virtual meeting with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, noted "a long and complicated history between our nations that haven't always been perfect neighbors with one another." Biden, in the White House, told Lopez Obrador in Mexico City that "we're safer when we work together — whether it's addressing the challenges of our shared border or getting this pandemic under control." Biden explained that when he was vice president in the administration of Barack Obama, it was decided to "look at Mexico as an equal, not as somebody who is south of our border. You are equal." Lopez Obrador, who appeared on video screens in the Roosevelt Room, said that "integration will strengthen both of our countries." He also thanked Biden for wanting to base the relationship on respect and equality, adding that … [Read more...] about Rather Than Pushing Bigger Walls, Biden Begins Mending Fences with Mexico
WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden urged Senate Democrats on Tuesday to rally behind a $1.9 trillion COVID-relief bill and stood by his proposed $1,400 payments to individuals, even as some party moderates sought to dial back parts of the package. “He said we need to pass this bill and pass it soon. That’s what the American people sent us here to do, and we have to get America the help it needs,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., told reporters, describing a 20-minute conference call Biden had with Democratic senators. The president’s cry for unity came as Democrats, with no votes to spare in a 50-50 Senate, sorted through lingering divisions over the emerging bill. Those included moderates’ efforts to focus spending more narrowly on those hardest hit by the deadly pandemic and resulting economic contraction. Biden took to Twitter to signal he wouldn’t budge from his demand that lawmakers add a fresh $1,400 payment to the $600 that millions of individuals received from … [Read more...] about Joe Biden urges Senate Dems to rally behind $1.9T virus bill
