Biden has ordered up a shock-and-awe campaign for his first days in office to signal, as dramatically as possible, the radical shift coming to America and global affairs, his advisers tell us.

The plan, Part 1 ... Biden, as detailed in a "First Ten Days" memo from incoming chief of staff Ron Klain, plans to unleash executive orders, federal powers and speeches to shift to a stark, national plan for "100 million shots" in three months:

  • A federal mask mandate on government property and for interstate travel — Biden's "100 Day Masking Challenge."
  • Expand neighborhood access by activating local pharmacies, working directly with both independent drugstores and massive chains.
  • Reimburse states for deploying the National Guard to support vaccinations, and provide additional FEMA assistance.
The plan, Part 2 ... Biden plans a $2 trillion stimulus/coronavirus plan + the following executive orders to symbolize and solidify a substantial shift here and abroad:

  • Rescind the travel ban on several predominantly Muslim countries.
  • Rejoin the Paris climate accord.
  • Extend pandemic-related limits on evictions.
  • Order federal agencies to find ways to reunite children split apart from their families after crossing the border.
The big picture: Watch for Biden to wrap everything, even tangential ideological priorities, under the banner of the coronavirus, in hopes of speeding up legislative action and picking up some Republican votes.

  • Biden privately says he has a small window to get the vaccination rollout right and the economy recovering. Otherwise, he'll fall victim to liberals who find his actions too timid, and Republicans who find them too liberal.

Jason Kenney off to a fantastic start with the Biden administration - he insulted Michigan Gov Gretchen Whitmer before the election, (who turns out to be the co-chair of Biden's election efforts) by calling her brain dead, and now feels blindsided by the Keystone XL pipeline cancellation set for tomorrow. Naturally, Kenney is trying to say that this is now the Federal Government's fault.

It was said before in another thread - Jason Kenney really needs to learn to shut the fuck up.

Beth has some pretty limp dicked power fantasies.
Beth isn’t the only one floating ideas. Lots of people saying the military are onsite to invoke martial law, arrest Biden and Harris before inauguration and reinstall Trump in March. You really have to see it for yourself, to believe it. The level of delusion is really something.

Murica. Gotta love ‘em!

Live updates: In first call with Putin, Biden pressed Russian president on several issues, White House says
By John Wagner and Colby Itkowitz
January 26 at 2:09 p.m

President Biden had his first call with Russian President Vladimir Putin, discussing a range of topics, including arms control, reports of Russian bounties on U.S. troops in Afghanistan and interference in the 2020 election, the White House said Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Biden’s pick for secretary of state, Antony Blinken, won Senate confirmation, becoming the fourth Cabinet pick to clear that hurdle. Senators are set to be sworn in as jurors ahead of the second impeachment trial of former president Donald Trump, which is scheduled to begin in earnest next month.
Here’s what to know:
Biden plans to sign more executive actions Tuesday, including orders on housing and prisons, as he outlines what the White House is calling his “racial equity agenda.” He also plans to deliver remarks on the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden is scheduled to take executive actions as early as Thursday to reopen federal marketplaces selling Affordable Care Act health plans and to lower recent barriers to joining Medicaid.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) warned Democrats that Republicans would counter any attempt to eliminate the filibuster with “immediate chaos” that would grind the chamber — and the Democratic governing agenda — to a halt.

Janet Yellen was confirmed as the first female secretary of the Treasury Department by the Senate on Monday evening and sworn in at the White House on Tuesday.

For weeks, Biden has emphasized that his goal for rolling out the coronavirus vaccine was 1 million shots a day, or 100 million vaccinations in his first 100 days. On Monday, he suggested a much faster clip, saying he could envision 1.5 million vaccinations per day.

Some good news on something that WOULDN'T be happening if Trump had won or his insurrection had succeeded - just some of the many lives in the balance of the Elite Wars in America and their outcome:

"Ending support for offensive operations is an important step in the right direction. It does not go quite as far in cutting off all U.S. military assistance to the Saudi coalition states as I would like, but it is a very good start and Biden deserves credit for doing this so soon after taking office. Sheline is correct that the U.S. will need to do more to pressure the Saudi coalition to end its campaign, lift the blockade, and cease their economic warfare against the people of Yemen. Biden’s announcement today marks a major win for supporters of a more peaceful and restrained foreign policy, and it is the result of many years of activism and advocacy by Yemenis and Yemeni-Americans and the work of many antiwar organizations. We should be proud that U.S. support for Saudi coalition attacks is finally ending, but we need to keep the pressure on the Saudi coalition until Yemen is finally at peace. That will mean continued pressure on Congress and the White House to halt all arms sales to belligerents in Yemen at least until they halt their involvement in the conflict. It also means holding the Biden administration accountable if they should backslide on this policy.

The announcement comes on the same day that the Biden administration has named its new special envoy on Yemen, Tim Lenderking. Lenderking has significant experience in Yemen and is respected by all sides in the conflict. Together with the announced end of support for Saudi coalition attacks on Yemen, Lenderking’s appointment signals that the Biden administration is serious about bringing the war to an end and not merely ending U.S. involvement in it. The war is the main driver of the country’s humanitarian crisis, and until there is a lasting ceasefire the crisis will continue to worsen. The Biden administration seems to understand that, which is why they issued a license to suspend the sanctions connected to Pompeo’s malevolent decision to designate the Houthis as terrorists. Now they need to follow up on these actions by reversing the designation, resuming full funding for humanitarian aid, and pursuing a new Security Council resolution that can serve as the foundation for a political settlement.

The U.S. supported the Saudi coalition war on Yemen for almost six years. In that time, the people of Yemen have suffered widespread malnutrition and starvation, cholera epidemics, horrific atrocities from indiscriminate bombing and shelling, the destruction of their infrastructure, and the wrecking of their economy. Hundreds of thousands have perished, millions have been displaced, and tens of millions have been impoverished. The long-term effects of malnutrition and trauma on an entire generation of young Yemenis ensure that the costs of the war will continue to add up for decades to come. U.S. complicity in this war has been a national disgrace, and it is incumbent on our government to support a negotiated compromise to end the fighting that our policy helped to fuel. It is undeniably good news that U.S. support for this indefensible, atrocious war is now coming to an end, but the U.S. now has an obligation to put out the fires that it so recklessly stoked."

From Axios today:
I went through the transcript of Vladimir Putin’s lengthy interview with NBC News over the weekend. Some things that jumped out at me beyond the newsy headlines.

Putin said that “despite all of these niceties” of Biden consulting allies before seeing him, the U.S. would make its own decisions on its relations with Russia.
Putin turned Biden’s desire for “predictability and stability” on its head, claiming it was the U.S. that was constantly pushing regime change (as in Syria or Libya) or making sudden policy changes (as in Afghanistan), while Russia defended the “stable” status quo.
Putin said Biden’s extensive political experience presented “some advantages, some disadvantages” for him, but “there will not be any knee-jerk reactions” and “we will be able to comply with certain rules of engagement, certain rules of communications and will be able to find points of contact and common points.”
Putin denied involvement in just about everything he has been accused of — election interference, cyber attacks, political assassinations — and quipped that he was surprised no one had accused him of “provoking the Black Lives Matter movement.”
Putin dismissed claims the Chinese government was committing genocide and the idea that Beijing posed a long-term threat to Russia: “We do not believe that China is a threat to us. China is a friendly nation. It has not declared us an enemy, as the United States has done.”
Putin refused to say Alexei Navalny’s name, and also refused to say whether he’d leave prison alive.
