L.A. County Passes Ordinance Requiring $5 ‘Hero Pay’ For Grocery Workers
This is a straight up payoff to the grocery workers union by LA County politicians. Let this be a lesson to everyone in how the payoffs & money laundering works in local politics. And check out the audacity of these maggots. The public is outraged, but the corrupt politicians could give a shit!

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 Tuesday to adopt an urgency ordinance requiring national grocery and drug retail employers in unincorporated areas of the county to pay frontline workers an additional $5 per hour hazard or “hero pay” for the next 120 days.
Supervisor Kathryn Barger voted against the measure, to take effect at midnight Feb. 26, citing unintended consequences and a concern that the ordinance only covers a “small sliver” of the essential workforce.

Via Roll Call
House Democrats passed a massive pandemic aid bill early Saturday morning over solid Republican opposition, a key step toward giving President Joe Biden his first major legislative victory.
The 219-212 vote sends the $1.9 trillion package to the Senate, where it is certain to undergo changes next week.
A provision that would more than double the federal minimum wage must be stripped from the package, based on guidance from the Senate parliamentarian. Senate Democrats were prepping an alternative to try to get around budget rules by taxing employers that don’t pay higher wages, but it wasn’t clear if that effort would pass muster under the “Byrd rule” either.
White House To Begin “Enhanced Screenings” For Ebola Virus At Airports…
The Biden administration is moving forward with plans to screen airline passengers from two African countries arriving in the U.S. for Ebola, which will involve sending them to one of about a half dozen designated airports.
The Centers for Disease Control confirmed the plan Friday evening, several hours after Yahoo News first reported that administration officials were finalizing details of how the screenings would work. “Out of an abundance of caution,” the U.S. government will institute public health measures for the very small number of travelers arriving from the [Democratic Republic of Congo] and Guinea,” the CDC said in a statement.

Fey told Jill Rappaport on her “Rappaport to the Rescue” podcast, “We just want to make it a fun hang out for people at home — kind of a stress reliever, so I don’t think you can expect much politics at all. “
She added, “It doesn’t seem like a venue for political jokes.”
DOJ Opens Door To Getting New Powers For Itself Over Terrorism…
A senior Justice Department official opened the door to seeking new legislative authorities to pursue domestic terrorism, a step the Biden administration has yet to entertain since the January 6 insurrection and something civil libertarians have warned against.
The prospect of expanded investigative and prosecutorial tools arose during a Friday briefing with reporters in which multiple Justice Department and FBI officials described an expansive array of authorities already available to them.
While there is no domestic terrorism statute, and U.S. officials can not designate a domestic group for sanction like they can a foreign one, one senior official acknowledged that statutory definitions of domestic terrorism “expand a lot of authorities we can use,” such nationwide search warrants, expanded law-enforcement access to tax and educational records, and harsher sentencing.

John Durham Resigns…. And Good Riddance!
After doing what exactly…? Everybody in the DOJ is useless.
Durham’s resignation is effective midnight Sunday.
The website for DOJ’s special counsel’s office notes Durham is leading it, and now lists him as running the investigation out of the Main Justice building on Pennsylvania Avenue. Dena Iverson, the principal deputy director for DOJ’s office of public affairs, confirmed with the Washington Examiner that Durham is still remaining in his special counsel role.
America Drops Its Objections To A Global Internet Tax…
US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen told her G20 colleagues Friday that Washington is dropping a push for a controversial provision in a global digital tax, opening the door to a likely agreement.
The US shift — part of a broader repositioning by President Joe Biden from the “America First” agenda of former President Donald Trump — prompted immediate praise from Germany and France, which said a deal was now “within reach” following the US pivot.
Yellen announced at the G20 finance ministers meeting that US officials “will engage robustly” in the talks and “is no longer advocating for ‘safe harbor’ implementation of Pillar 1,” a Treasury official told AFP.
U.S. Believes Saudi Crown Prince Ordered Brutal Murder Of Washington Post Journalist…
Just like 9/11. They literally funded it and absolutely NOTHING happened to me. The elites covered it up and the rich got richer off that oil.
Via US News:
The crown prince, widely considered the de facto leader of the kingdom, “approved an operation in Istanbul, Turkey to capture or kill” the U.S. resident and columnist for The Washington Post, according to the report.
“We base this assessment on the Crown Prince’s control of decisionmaking in the Kingdom, the direct involvement of a key advisor and members of Mohammed bin Salman’s protective detail in the operation, and the Crown Prince’s support for using violent measures to silence dissidents abroad, including Khashoggi,” the report states. “Since 2017, the Crown Prince has had absolute control of the Kingdom’s security and intelligence operations, making it highly unlikely that Saudi officials would have carried out an operation of this nature without the Crown Prince’s authorization.”
Warmongers At Pentagon Stand By Syrian Strike Despite Numerous Legality Questions…
Don’t worry, the NeoCons now dressed as Democrats have assured us this is going to be a fun war.
Via US News:
THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT on Friday stood by its strike the night before against what officials say was an Iranian-backed militia position in Syria, despite international criticism and growing skepticism in Congress about its legality.
“The purpose for striking these targets was twofold: One, clearly, to try to make an impact on these groups and their ability to conduct future attacks,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby told reporters Friday afternoon. “And two, to send a very clear signal that the U.S. is going to protect its people, it’s going to protect its interests and it’s going to protect its partners in the region.”

Via Stamford Advocate:
WASHINGTON – U.S. border officials are preparing to open another tent facility in Del Rio, Texas, to cope with soaring numbers of migrant families and children crossing into the United States in recent weeks, according to two Homeland Security officials involved in the planning.
The temporary facility is expected to open in the coming weeks and will be used by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which opened a similar “soft-sided” structure in Donna, Texas, three weeks ago. That facility and other Border Patrol facilities are under increasing capacity strain from the burgeoning influx of Central American minors and family groups in U.S. custody.

Lincoln Project Staffer Served As A Paid Campaign Staffer For Jon Ossoff & A Lincoln Project Employee…
A high-ranking Lincoln Project employee served as a paid campaign staffer for Georgia senator Jon Ossoff (D.) while he received payments from both groups, a potential violation of laws that prohibit coordination between campaigns and super PACs.
The Lincoln Project and the Ossoff campaign paid Democratic consultant Keith Edwards during the closely watched Georgia runoffs that tipped the scales of the Senate to Democrats.
Edwards said he left his post as the Lincoln Project’s communications director in November to become senior digital adviser for the Ossoff campaign, but records show his consulting firm, That’s Good Media, received at least $20,000 from the Lincoln Project while Edwards was employed by the campaign, Federal Election Commission records show.

Schools Working Overtime To Find Students Who Aren’t Showing Up For School Anymore…
Via News Times:
DETROIT – Kenneth Chapman Sr. was hopeful as he navigated a hulking Detroit Public Schools van down the street, pulling up to a brick home. Out front, there were signs that the girl he was looking for lived inside. Amid the discarded plastic cups in the yard, there was a ball, and on the porch a small bike, painted fluorescent pink.
“Normally when I get to the house and I see toys or bikes, I think, ‘OK, somebody’s going to be here,’ ” Chapman said.
But when he knocked, no one appeared.
This was one of the two dozen stops Chapman, who works in the school system’s Family and Community Engagement Office, would make, looking on this chilly day in late October for students who had been missing classes. Some of the children on the list had worrisome numbers of absences this early on in the school year. But there were 3,000 students the district c

You can’t see them smiling beneath the masks, but students at Wenatchee and Eastmont high schools are glad to be back in school, even if it’s only part-time.
Eastmont high students have been back since Jan. 25 and Wenatchee high students since Jan. 26, each on a different hybrid schedule.
“It is amazing the level of energy in the building, having adults interacting with kids but also the conversations of adults to adults,” said Wenatchee Principal Eric Anderson. “You get kids back in the building, you get a lot of smiles even with masks on. You can tell people are happy.”
Capitol Police Chief Warns: “Extremists” Want To Blow Up Capitol During Biden State Of The Union…
So basically he will never have to leave the White House.
WASHINGTON — U.S. Capitol Police plan to maintain their enhanced level of security around the Capitol at least through President Joe Biden’s first official address to Congress because intelligence suggests that extremists could be planning an attack, acting Chief Yogananda Pittman said Thursday.
“We know that members of the militia groups that were present on January 6th have stated their desires that they want to blow up the Capitol and kill as many members as possible with a direct nexus to the State of the Union, which we know that date has not been identified,” she told members of Congress, referring to Biden’s coming first address to a joint session of Congress.
“So based on that information, we think that it’s prudent that Capitol Police maintain its enhanced and robust security posture until we address those vulnerabilities going forward,” she said.
