Jeffrey Clark, a former Justice Department official involved in former President Donald J. Trump's frenzied efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election, refused to cooperate on Friday with the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, leading to a sharp rebuke from the committee's chairman. The standoff between Mr. Clark and the committee is the second such confrontation since Congress began investigating the circumstances surrounding the Capitol violence, seeking information on Mr. Trump's attempts to subvert the election. The House has already voted to find one Trump ally, Stephen K. Bannon, in criminal contempt of Congress for stonewalling the inquiry. Under federal law, any person summoned as a congressional witness who refuses to comply can face a misdemeanor charge that carries a fine of $100 to $100,000 and a jail sentence of one month to one year.

Companies with more than 100 employees will be mandated to require coronavirus vaccinations for their workers or do regular testing by Jan. 4 under the terms of a new federal rule released Thursday by the Biden administration. The issue, which is being implemented on an emergency basis by the Department of Labor, is one of the White House's most strenuous attempts to increase vaccination rates across the country. The policy is already being contested by a number of Republicans, and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said he planned to sue the federal government to block the policy, calling it an “illegal, unconstitutional regulation.” The new policy would require weekly testing and mandatory face-masking for workers who choose not to get vaccinated. It also specifies that employers must provide paid time off for workers to get vaccinated or recover from any side effects. But companies are able to require unvaccinated employees to foot the bill for tests. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Facing pushback by conservative-leaning members in their ranks, Democratic leaders put their $1.85 trillion social policy, climate and tax package on hold today, instead moving toward a vote on a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package.  The retreat came after centrist Democrats balked at supporting the social policy plan without a formal estimate of its cost and economic impact. Hoping to convey movement toward approving it, House leaders said they would hold a procedural vote that would allow consideration of the measure sometime in the future, with hopes of passing it by Thanksgiving. But the delay was a setback for President Biden and Democratic congressional leaders, who had hoped to pass both measures today after weeks of feuding between moderates and progressives that has stalled their agenda. An off-year electoral drubbing this week dramatized the stakes.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

  More than 40 countries pledged to phase out coal, the dirtiest fossil fuel, in a deal announced Thursday at the United Nations climate summit that prompted Alok Sharma, the head of the conference, to proclaim “the end of coal is in sight.”  But several of the biggest coal consumers were notably absent from the accord, including China and India, which together burn roughly two-thirds of the world's coal, as well as Australia, the world's 11th-biggest user of coal and a major exporter.  The United States, which still generates about one-fifth of its electricity from coal, also did not sign the pledge.  The new pact includes 23 countries that for the first time have promised to stop building and issuing permits for new coal plants at home and to eventually shift away from using the fuel. Among them are five of the world's top 20 power-generating countries: Poland, Indonesia, South Korea, Vietnam and Ukraine. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

When former President Donald Trump fired off a letter in September demanding that Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger decertify the election, investigators in Georgia were paying attention. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis made clear to her staff she wanted that letter -- the original copy, complete with the envelope -- as part of her probe into Trump's efforts to upend Georgia's 2020 election results, according to a person familiar with the matter. Trump, still stewing over his 2020 loss and eying a run in 2024, has continued to bellow complaints about the results of the last presidential election and insert himself into Peach State politics. And his antics have provided new fodder for Fulton County investigators as they examine whether his efforts to overturn the 2020 election results were criminal. At a recent campaign stop in the state, Trump also offered investigators more insight into his interactions with another potentially relevant witness: Republican Gov. Brian Kemp.

John takes us through the process of a bill becoming law, with sound bites from former Presidents. The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote on Friday on the social policy and climate-change bill and a bipartisan infrastructure bill that form the centerpiece of President Joe Biden's legislative agenda, a senior Democratic aide said on Thursday. Democrats have missed previous self-imposed deadlines to vote on the legislation, but their leadership feels confident they can finish on Friday, the aide said. Earlier on Thursday night, Biden was calling various House members and urging them to approve the $1.75 trillion reconciliation bill, a White House official said. Democrats want to pass that bill and the $1 trillion infrastructure measure, which has already been approved by the Senate, by Thanksgiving later this month.

At the U.S. Supreme Court, the conservative majority seemed ready Wednesday to broaden gun rights by striking down a New York law that limits the right to carry concealed handguns. At issue was New York's law restricting licenses to carry a concealed gun to people going hunting or shooting, or to those who can demonstrate a special need for self protection, like a bank messenger carrying cash. Do we want to modify police departments? Minneapolis residents on Tuesday voted against a proposed amendment that would have removed the city's police department from the city charter and replaced it with a Department of Public Safety. Supporters of the proposal said a complete overhaul of policing was necessary to stop police violence. Opponents said the proposal had no concrete plan for how to move forward and could make communities already affected by violence more vulnerable as crime is on the rise.

Bernie Sanders is slamming Democrats On Tuesday, it was reported that a new provision was being added to the stalled $1.75 trillion social-spending plan that would overwhelmingly benefit wealthier Americans. The repeal of the SALT provision - which caps federal deductions for state and local tax at $10,000 - has long been championed by some Democratic lawmakers, who believe that the Trump-era law unfairly impacted those in high tax blue states, like New Jersey or California. The repeal of the cap could end up costing the federal government far more than any proposed higher taxes on the wealthy and would result in a $30 billion net direct tax cut for the top 5%. “That is beyond unacceptable. I will not support more tax breaks for billionaires," tweeted Sanders on Tuesday, linking to a CNN report on the analysis. "Democrats campaigned and won on an agenda that demands that the very wealthy finally pay their fair share, not one that gives them more tax breaks," Sanders said in a statement. "I am open to a compromise approach which protects the middle class in high-tax states."   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

In Virginia, the McAuliffe campaign had relentlessly tried to make the race about Trump, Trump, Trump — in its television ads and on the stump. It didn't work. Mr. Youngkin pulled off something of a surprise and rare feat: He drove up the Republican margins in white and rural parts of the state further than Mr. Trump had, cutting into the edge of the Democratic nominee, former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, in suburban areas. He even flipped some key counties entirely. Strategists in both parties said that the Virginia race was heavily shaped by Mr. Biden's falling approval rating, and that the downward Democratic trajectory had begun when the president stumbled through the troubled pullout of American troops from Afghanistan. Mr. McAuliffe and the Democrats never recovered. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Open The Great Highway Alliance is a nonprofit benefit corporation whose purpose is to educate the public about the safety of our streets, especially issues concerning the Great Highway. The GH has not had a death on it since 2005, and the last time the SFFD was called to a vehicular collision on it was in 2017. It is a safe, wide, divided highway with painted, lighted, paved crosswalks, without any cross traffic, with timed traffic lights so vehicles at 35 mph drive nonstop on its 2 miles emitting far less greenhouse gasses than stop-and-go traffic in gridlock by homes and small businesses. The highway must be free of pedestrians in its traffic lanes so emergency vehicles can drive in those lanes, unobstructed without delay, when they are responding to beach and ocean rescues, and driving through the neighborhood to get to emergencies and hospitals. Many people working in San Francisco live south of the Great Highway, and many who live here work south of here, and use the GH as the fastest easiest way to commute to work. It is a scenic drive and relieves traffic from traveling through the inner city. It was promised it would be temporarily closed to enable social distancing during the COVID pandemic, and would be restored to its original use after the danger passed. If any changes are to be made, they should be considered only after an Environmental Impact Report has been done, after the highway has been restored to its original pre-emergency state. A temporary pilot project is a way around CEQA and the California Coastal Act, and a loophole for the City of SF to avoid doing an Environmental Impact Report which would normally be required for the closing of a Coastal Road. What are they afraid of? The Sierra Club has urged them to do it and they should welcome the information it will provide.  openthegreat highway.com See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

If Youngkin wins, what does that mean for the Democrats...and President BIden? Eric Adams, a former police officer and Brooklyn borough president, will be the city's second Black mayor, and Alvin Bragg will be Manhattan's first Black district attorney. Those and other races centered on concern over public safety and the recovery from the pandemic. The Associated Press declared victory for Mr. Adams, the Brooklyn borough president, 10 minutes after the polls closed at 9 p.m. At his campaign celebration, held at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge, just around the corner from his office at Brooklyn Borough Hall, Mr. Adams urged unity. “Today we take off the intramural jersey and we put on one jersey, Team New York,” he told supporters. Mr. Adams, who will take office as mayor on Jan. 1, faces a staggering set of challenges as the nation's largest city grapples with the enduring consequences of the pandemic, including a precarious and unequal economic recovery and continuing concerns about crime and the quality of city life.

For months as he campaigned for governor of Virginia, Glenn Youngkin tried to sound a lot like the kind of Republican who dominated the party back in 2009 — the last time a Republican was elected to statewide office. He avoided discussion of divisive social issues in favor of praise of free markets and job creators, and conservative activists knew very little about him or what he believed as a result. “He was on nobody's radar screen,” said John Fredericks, a radio host who was chairman of Donald J. Trump's presidential campaigns in Virginia in 2016 and 2020. In the final days before the election today, many Republicans say they still have no idea what Mr. Youngkin really believes. But they have cheered him on regardless, after he took a hard-right turn and began promoting the causes that are animating conservatives and supporters of the former president, from the debate over teaching the impact of racism to transgender rights in schools.

A Safeway supermarket in the Castro District of San Francisco just announced that it would be going from a 24/7 operation to closing early at 9 PM in an effort to deter shoplifters, becoming the latest chain store to make drastic changes in the city's current retail crime wave. According to a Safeway spokeswoman, the store will also be removing self-checkout lines as well as other operational changes due to the thefts. Walgreens is shutting down five of its stores in San Francisco due to rampant shoplifting in the city, the company announced Tuesday. A referendum called Prop 47 passed in 2014, raising the dollar amount for how much merchandise had to be stolen in order for shoplifting to be considered a felony. After Prop 47 passed, theft of commercial merchandise under $950 became only a misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of 6 months in jail.

British politicians have long been admired across the Atlantic for their rhetorical flourish, and U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson rose to the occasion during his opening address as the host leader at the U.N. Climate Change Conference that opened in Glasgow, Scotland, on Monday. Johnson opened with a clever analogy, welcoming the assembled delegates “to Scotland, whose most famous fictional son is almost certainly a man called James Bond.” Bond films, Johnson noted, often culminate with the hero “strapped to a doomsday device, while a red digital clock ticks down remorselessly to a destination that will end human life as we know it.” “We are in roughly the same position, my fellow world leaders, as James Bond today, except this is not a movie, and the doomsday device is real,” Johnson said. “The clock is ticking to the furious rhythm of hundreds of billions of engines and furnaces and turbines that are enveloping the Earth in an invisible and suffocating blanket of CO2.” See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The law — which has been in effect for about two months save for a handful of days when it was blocked by a lower federal court — allows private citizens to sue abortion providers or anyone who assists someone in obtaining an abortion, regardless of whether they live in Texas, know the patient terminating a pregnancy, or can prove any injury to themself from the procedure. There are no exemptions for cases of rape or incest. People who successfully sue over an abortion in the state can win a minimum of $10,000, but those who successfully defend themselves from such a suit can claim no financial reward. And there can be limitless lawsuits filed in any Texas county over a single abortion, a factor Hearron referenced in Monday's arguments as one reason the law creates an unconstitutional chilling effect. “It turns the abortion provider into a permanent defendant,” Hearron said.

At a news conference on Monday afternoon, Manchin laid out fundamental concerns over the approach that Biden and his party are taking in their sweeping agenda. He rejected the party's push to expand social programs and castigated Democrats for using "gimmicks" to hide the true cost of the plan and said far more time is needed to evaluate its economic impact to guard against potential negative consequences. Despite months of a lobbying campaign by the White House to win over Manchin, including by cutting the price tag in half and making cuts to key programs, the West Virginia moderate's comments indicate that Democrats may never be able to win his support on this proposal. "I'm open to supporting a final bill that helps move our country forward, but I am equally open to voting against a bill that hurts our country," he said in a warning shot to his party.

California braced for winter storms and flash floods on Monday as meteorologists warned of a “bomb cyclone” and an “atmospheric river,” a convergence of storms that unleashed heavy rain to parts of the Bay Area, along with high winds, flash floods and the potential for heavy snow in the Sierra Nevada. From Marin County to the area just south of Big Sur along the Pacific Coast, flash flood watches were in effect until late Sunday night and, in some areas, early Monday morning, including parts of the San Francisco Peninsula. The system was so vast that it was expected to reach souther BC on Monday, where it was set to bring rain and strong winds.The National Weather Service issued a winter weather warning on Monday with heavy snow in the Sierra Nevada through Tuesday morning. The convergence of storms comes at a challenging time for California, which has been besieged by wildfires and drought, the result of extreme weather brought on by climate change.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday agreed to review a controversial Texas abortion law on Nov. 1 but refused to block the law while it examines the state's unusual enforcement scheme and whether the Department of Justice has the right to sue to block the law. The court will not directly consider the constitutionality of the law. Instead, the court said it would consider the following questions: whether "the state can insulate from federal-court review a law that prohibits the exercise of a constitutional right by delegating to the general public the authority to enforce that prohibition through civil action"; and can "the United States bring suit in federal court and obtain injunctive or declaratory relief against the State, state court judges, state court clerks, other state officials, or all private parties to prohibit S.B. 8 from being enforced." Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissented with keeping the law in place. "The promise of future adjudication offers cold comfort, however, for Texas women seeking abortion care, who are entitled to relief now," she wrote. "These women will suffer personal harm from delaying their medical care, and as their pregnancies progress, they may even be unable to obtain abortion care altogether."

The Supreme Court today accelerated the country's debate over reproductive rights, leaving in place Texas's most-restrictive-in-the-nation abortion law but scheduling a hearing in just 10 days to consider its future. The court granted an expedited review of what is called S.B. 8, and juggled its docket to hear arguments Nov. 1. The Biden administration in a filing Friday said the law “has virtually eliminated abortion in Texas after six weeks of pregnancy.” The court's action sets up a momentous term for abortion rights. The justices on Dec. 1 will consider a Mississippi law that bans most abortions after 15 weeks, far earlier than the court's precedents currently allow. Justice Dept. asks Supreme Court to halt Texas abortion law Abortion opponents have urged the court to use that case to loosen precedents that say states may not prohibit abortion before fetal viability, generally thought to be around 22 to 24 weeks.

The book is “The Last Liberal Republican: An Insider's Perspective on Nixon's Surprising Social Policy” The Last Liberal Republican is a memoir from one of Nixon's senior domestic policy advisors. John Roy Price—a member of the moderate wing of the Republican Party, a cofounder of the Ripon Society, and an employee on Nelson Rockefeller's campaigns—joined Daniel Patrick Moynihan, and later John D. Ehrlichman, in the Nixon White House to develop domestic policies, especially on welfare, hunger, and health. Based on those policies, and the internal White House struggles around them, Price places Nixon firmly in the liberal Republican tradition of President Theodore Roosevelt, New York governor Thomas E. Dewey, and President Eisenhower. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday announced a crackdown on oil and gas wells, a long-awaited move to protect public health that sets up a fight between environmentalists and labor unions allied with industry. The governor's proposal — which comes just weeks after an offshore oil spill that fouled stretches of the Southern California coast — would require new wells to be more than half a mile away from neighborhoods, schools and other public areas. Officials said the policy would give California the strictest environmental standards in the country for fossil fuel extraction. As the United States and nations around the world struggle to blunt the effects of rising temperatures and extreme weather, sweeping assessments released Thursday by the White House, the U.S. intelligence community and the Pentagon conclude that climate change will exacerbate long-standing threats to global security. Together, the reports show a deepening concern within the U.S. security establishment that the shifts unleashed by climate change can reshape U.S. strategic interests, offer new opportunities to rivals such as China, and increase instability in nuclear states such as North Korea and Pakistan.

The House voted today to hold former White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon in criminal contempt of Congress for his refusal to comply with a subpoena issued by the committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. The measure was approved on a 229-to-202 vote, with nine Republicans joining all Democrats present in voting “yes.” Thursday's full House vote comes days after the members of the bipartisan select committee voted unanimously in favor of the resolution. Bannon has previously argued through his attorney that he can't respond to the subpoena because of executive privilege asserted by former president Donald Trump. The matter now goes to the Justice Department, which will decide whether to pursue the contempt referral. Contempt of Congress is a misdemeanor criminal offense that can result in up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $100,000. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The Biden administration released several reports Thursday about climate change and national security, laying out in stark terms the ways in which the warming world is beginning to significantly challenge stability worldwide. The documents, issued by the departments of Homeland Security and Defense as well as the National Security Council and director of national intelligence, mark the first time that the nation's security agencies collectively communicated the climate risks they face. The reports include warnings from the intelligence community about how climate change can work on numerous levels to sap the strength of a nation. For example, countries like Iraq and Algeria could be hit by lost revenue from fossil fuels, even as their region faces worsening heat and drought. The Pentagon warned that food shortages could lead to unrest, along with fights between countries over water. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

In the face of facts, some people are in total denial. The Food and Drug Administration is moving to soon allow people to receive booster shots that are different from their first Covid-19 vaccine doses, people familiar with the matter said.  The FDA won't recommend any booster over the others but will permit people to get a booster shot that is different from the shot they first received, one of the people familiar with the matter said.  The FDA is seeking to authorize mixing and matching as soon as this week, the people familiar with the matter said.

US Senate Democrats tried to pass voting rights legislation blocked by the Republicans A bill aimed at thwarting restrictive new voting laws enacted in Republican-led states failed to advance in the U.S. Senate on Wednesday, as Republican lawmakers blocked a Democratic effort to begin debating the measure. It was the third time this year Senate Democrats tried to advance a voting rights bill in reaction to new state balloting restrictions that were fueled by Donald Trump's false claims of a stolen election. Enough of the chamber's 50 Republicans had voted to block the measure from advancing, a move that could bring new pressure on Democrats to change the Senate's filibuster rule that requires 60 votes to pass most legislation. Senator Angus King, an independent who aligns with Democrats, told reporters that if Republicans again block the bill, "we would either have to figure out a rule change or we have to try to have discussions toward a compromise solution."

One day before a mob of former President Donald J. Trump's supporters stormed the Capitol, Stephen K. Bannon, a former top adviser to Mr. Trump, made a prediction to listeners of his radio show. “Now we're on, as they say, the point of attack — the point of attack tomorrow,” Mr. Bannon said on Jan. 5. “It's going to kick off. It's going to be very dramatic.” It is because of comments like that, which foreshadowed the violence that played out during the Capitol riot, that the House committee investigating the assault is interested in questioning Mr. Bannon. But the former counselor to Mr. Trump has refused to cooperate with the inquiry, citing the former president's claim of executive privilege. The panel on Tuesday voted unanimously to recommend charging Mr. Bannon with criminal contempt of Congress for defying its subpoena, sending the matter to the House, which is expected to approve the move and hand the matter over to the Justice Department for prosecution.
