Biden responds to GOP interruptions during speech

Wed, Feb 8, 2023 at 3:23 pm

President Biden is standing by his comments that outraged some Republicans at the State of the Union. On a trip to Wisconsin the day after his speech, the president said he and Republicans had a “spirited debate.” He said GOP lawmakers “seemed shocked when I raised the plans of some of their members and their caucus to cut Social Security. And Marjorie Taylor Greene and others stood up and said, ‘liar, liar.'” The president then quoted three Republicans –Senators Rick Scott, Ron Johnson, and Mike Lee– who have each suggested major changes to Social Security and Medicare.

Former President Trump Kicks Off Campaign Events

Sat, Jan 28, 2023 at 10:16 pm

The former President is kicking off his 2024 campaign with two stops along the East Coast. More from Correspondent Bernie Bennett.

Former President Donald Trump kicked off his 2024 White House bid with a stop Saturday in New Hampshire before heading to South Carolina, appearances in early-voting states marking the first campaign events since announcing his latest run more than two months ago.

Those states hold two of the party’s first three nominating contests, giving them enormous power in selecting the nominee.

Mr. Trump and his allies hope the events will offer a show of force behind the former president after a sluggish start to his campaign. In recent weeks, his backers have reached out to political operatives and elected officials to secure support for Mr. Trump at a critical point when other Republicans are preparing their own expected challenges.

A new controversy for the Presbyterian Church USA

VERBATIM: A group of students seeking to be ordained by the denomination has a problem with one of the questions on a test they were required to take. It asked them to interpret the events of Judges, chapter 19, which tells the story of the rape and murder of one Levite’s concubine. The students are demanding that the question be removed, because it might be “triggering” to victims of sexual abuse. They write “Our examinations must not cause fear and harm.” Michael Harrington, SRN News.
