Boris Johnson doesn’t like the term “special relationship”
While Joe Biden he is preparing for his first foreign trip, in which one of the first items on the agenda includes a meeting with Boris Johnson to confirm the “special relationship” of the United States with Britain, Johnson decided to make it clear that he did not care too much about the term “special connection”.
Downing Street confirmed today that Johnson is not a fan of the term describing U.S.-British relations, believing he seems “poor and weak”.
“The prime minister has already noted that he prefers not to use the phrase, but that in no way diminishes the importance we consider our relationship with the United States, our closest ally,” a Johnson spokesman said.
It’s a concept credited with Winston Churchill.
Poll: The U.S. reputation as a leading global power continues to suffer
As Joe Biden preparing for a trip to Europe, research has shown that it has not returned the global position of the United States to where it was before Covid19, Reuters reports.
A survey of 11 countries conducted by the German Marshall Fund and the Bertelsmann Foundation showed that the conduct of the pandemic in Washington has diminished the attitudes of many Europeans about the United States, especially in France i Germany.
“The first three months Biden administration they did not influence French and German views on American influence in the world, ”the study said.
U.S. research papers published in March talk about how the U.S. floor Donald Trump could avoid nearly 400,000 deaths with a more efficient strategy. Nearly 600,000 Americans have died from Covid-19 since the beginning of the pandemic.
In the United States, since Biden took office, many seem to be leaning toward the perception that U.S. influence abroad has grown, research has shown.
Although most Americans consider the European Union a reliable partner, only 51% of Germans see the United States as one. In France the figure is 60%, and in the UK 67%.
Less than a quarter of Turks trust the United States.
Republican Representative in Alabama Mo Brooks was served on the lawsuit by a representative of Democratic California Eric Swalwell accusing him and other allies of Donald Trump incentives January 6 attack on the US Capitol.
Swalwell’s legal team, which has already served Trump, Donald Trump Jr. i Rudy Giuliani lawsuit, they previously stated they had trouble getting in touch with Brooks. But this weekend, Brooks accused them of committing a crime to do so.
Philip Andonian, Swalwell’s lawyer, declined Brooks’ comments on CNN:
“No one entered or even tried to enter Brooks’ house. That claim is completely untrue. “The processor server legally delivered the papers to Mo Brooks’ wife, as permitted by federal rules,” he told CNN. “It was after her initial efforts to avoid the favor. Mo Brooks has no one but himself to blame for the fact that this happened. We asked him to give up the service, we offered him to meet at the place he had chosen. Instead of dealing with it like a civilized person, he has been involved in the juvenile Twitter trolling game in recent days and has continued to avoid the service. He demanded that we serve him. We just did that. Importantly, the appeal was served and Mo Brooks can now be held accountable for his role in inciting the deadly Capitol uprising. “
In his rush to accuse Swalwell’s team of illegally entering his house, Brooks also appears to have tweeted his gmail passwords and his pin that were written on a sticky note attached to his computer.
Jen Psaki, Biden’s White House secretary, went to CNN’s Trusted Sources to talk about it Fox News,, Newsmax and other right-wing places.
She compared them to “propagandists” and “representatives of the Russian and Chinese media who ask questions directed by their government.”
“The things that get into my skin are when the premise of the question is based on inaccurate information, misleading information,” she said.
Psaki also defended Biden administration against criticism for holding only one presidential press conference: “It may be more driven by the media than the American public,” she said.
The Supreme Court refused to consider the lawsuit challenging the draft policy of registering only men in the country as unconstitutional.
Judge Sonia Sotomayor basically wrote that Congress should take the lead on whether all genders should be asked to register in the 18-year-old selective service system and to consider military service in the event of a re-call for a draft.
Although the Trump administration has defended the policy, Acting Attorney General Joe Biden Elizabeth B. Prelogar advised the court not to address the issue because Congress was considering including women in the draft registration, reports the Washington Post.
Manchin opposes the law on voting rights and defends the filibuster
“I believe that party voting legislation will destroy the already weakening ties of our democracy,” wrote Manchin, who was considered a key vote to oppose Republican efforts in the state government to restrict voting rights.
The reaction was quick.
Manchin also used the column to reiterate his support for the filibuster, which gives 41 out of 100 senators the opportunity to block the action.
Democrats they claimed that Republicans had repeatedly used a filibuster to support minority positions – last month they used it to block the creation of a 9/11-style bipartisan inquiry commission into the attack on the US capital.
Study by the Center for American Progress found that Republicans used filibusters about twice as many as Democrats to prevent the other party from passing the law.
Hot seconds this weekend, the Internet has come together as everyone has gone crazy from a possible theory that Donald Trump may have worn the pants back at the Republican Party of North Carolina state convention Saturday night.
In pictures and videos from his speech that showed a lack of flies on the front, as well as some unusual creases, internet dolls challenged Trump’s fashion choices – and the #TrumpPants in trend on Twitter.
But after watching 90 minutes of footage, Snipes stated that the theory was fake.
