    This might be pushing it........

    With Biden, a Cat Will Be Living in the White House for the First Time in a Decade

    We already knew President-elect Joe Biden would be taking dogs back to the White House. But that’s not all. Now comes word that Biden will be taking a cat with him as well. Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, confirmed to CBS Sunday Morning that they will be getting a cat when they move into the White House. The future first lady had already hinted that she was thinking of taking a cat with her to the White House. “Well, I’d love to get a cat,” she said in an interview earlier this year. “I love having animals around the house.”

    It would mark the first time a president has a cat in the White House since George W. Bush had India, who was nicknamed Willie. But his two Scottish terriers, Barney and Miss Beazley, got most of the attention. India died shortly before Bush left the White House in January 2009. Bill Clinton’s Socks was by far the most popular White House feline in recent memory. Socks even got fan mail, which led to complaints from a Republican lawmaker, who questioned the use of government resources to answer the mail. He later laughed it off as a mistake and blamed a staff aide for coming up with the idea. Barack Obama had two Portuguese water dogs, Bo and Sunny while President Donald Trump is believed to be the first president since James Polk in 1849 to not have a pet in office. Only three other presidents didn’t have some sort of pet at the White House.

    The Bidens had already said that Champ and Major, their two german shepherds, will be moving into the White House. He even used it as a campaign slogan: “Let’s put dogs back in the White House.” And there was a campaign called Dog Lovers for Joe with its own website and a tagline that got some traction: “Choose your humans wisely.” Major will be the first rescue dog to live in the White House.: With Biden, a cat will be living in the White House for the first time in a decade.
    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    But that was many years ago. Now, we do not speak about something like that, do we? (didn't he take a knee?)

    Fuck off Jeff. I'm not in America you fucking moron.

    For decades these relics of slavery have slowly lost interest and support. The republicans are the ones who, since Obama took office and they took control of the purse strings, have been fueling division by blaming the economic damage wreaked by their sponsors on "immigrants".

    The bald orange loser took it up several notches, to the point where white supremacist groups can march in major cities and the supposed President of the United States effectively cheers them on.

    You're so busy trying to find big words to make yourself sound clever (and failing dismally, you waffling wanker) that you can't even see the fucking obvious.

    She's also probably not going to get nominated because she hurt the republican snowflakes' feelings.

    • Zients, Murthy tapped to head up Biden’s Covid-19 response


    President-elect Joe Biden has tapped two close allies to oversee his administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, according to two people familiar with the decision.

    Transition co-chair and former Obama administration official Jeff Zients is set to serve as the White House’s Covid-19 coordinator and Vivek Murthy, the former U.S. surgeon general under Obama, will return to that role, but with a broader portfolio that will include acting as the top medical expert and public face of the effort.

    Marcella Nunez-Smith, a co-chair of Biden’s Covid-19 advisory board, will also take a key role in the administration’s response, focused on health disparities.

    Biden’s team plans to roll out these and other health care personnel announcements as soon as this weekend.

    • The top candidates Biden is considering for key energy and climate roles


    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has urged President-elect Joe Biden to nominate Mary Nichols, chair of California's air pollution regulator, to lead the Environmental Protection Agency, Bloomberg reports.

    Why it matters: The reported push by Schumer could boost Nichol's chances of leading an agency that will play a pivotal role in Biden's vow to enact aggressive new climate policies — especially because the plan is likely to rest heavily on executive actions.

    Where it stands: The EPA gig is just one of several important outstanding selections. The New York Times has a nice rundown of names in contention for other energy- and climate-related jobs.

    Here's just a few...


    • Mustafa Santiago Ali, a former EPA official, is in contention to head the White House Council on Environmental Quality. He's currently an exec with the National Wildlife Federation.
    • Ali A. Zaidi, a top New York State energy official who also served in the Obama administration, "is widely considered the front-runner for the role of domestic climate change coordinator," the NYT reports.
    • The NYT and E&E News both report that former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm is a possibility for the White House climate coordinator role, while E&E also lists Washington State Gov. Jay Inslee as an option.
    • Michael Connor, an alum of the Obama and Clinton administrations, is among the options for Interior Secretary, per the NYT. He's a citizen of the Taos Pueblo, and the piece notes there's strong interest in nominating a Native American to lead Interior for the first time.
    • Rep. Deb Haaland (D-N.M.), one of the first two Native American women elected to Congress, also "remains a contender" for Interior, the NYT reports.

    Biden officially secures Electoral College majority after California certifies votes

    It is over now...

    California certified its presidential election Friday and appointed 55 electors pledged to vote for President-elect Biden, officially handing him the Electoral College majority needed to win the White House.

    Secretary of State Alex Padilla's formal approval of Mr. Biden's win in the state brought his tally of pledged electors to 279, according to a tally from The Associated Press. That's just over the 270 threshold for victory.

    These steps in the election are often ignored formalities. But the hidden mechanics of electing a U.S. president have drawn new scrutiny this year as President Trump continues to deny Mr. Biden's victory and pursues increasingly specious legal strategies aimed at overturning the results before they are finalized.

    Although it's been apparent for weeks that Mr. Biden won the presidential election, his accrual of more than 270 electors is a key step toward the White House, said Edward B. Foley, a law professor at Ohio State University.

    "It is a legal milestone and the first milestone that has that status," Foley said. "Everything prior to that was premised on what we call projections."

    The electors named Friday will meet December 14, along with counterparts in each state, to formally vote for the next president. Most states have laws binding their electors to the winner of the popular vote in their state, measures that were upheld by a Supreme Court decision this year. There have been no suggestions that any of Mr. Biden's pledged electors would contemplate not voting for him.

    Results of the Electoral College vote are due to be received, and typically approved, by Congress on January 6. Although lawmakers can object to accepting the electors' votes, it would be almost impossible for Mr. Biden to be blocked at that point.

    The Democratic-controlled House and Republican-controlled Senate would both vote separately to resolve any disputes. One already has arisen from Pennsylvania, where 75 Republican lawmakers signed a statement on Friday urging Congress to block the state's electoral votes from being cast for Mr. Biden. But the state's Republican U.S. senator, Pat Toomey, said soon after that he would not be objecting to Pennsylvania's slate of electors, underscoring the difficulty in trying to change the election results through Congress.

    "As a practical matter, we know that Joe Biden is going to be inaugurated on January 20," Foley said.

    That was clear in the days after the election, when the count of mail ballots gradually showed that Mr. Biden had won victories in enough states to win the Electoral College. It became even more apparent in late November, when every swing state won by Mr. Biden certified him as the winner of its elections and appointed his electors to the Electoral College. Mr. Trump has fruitlessly tried to stop those states from certifying Mr. Biden as the winner and appointing electors for the former vice president.

    He made no such effort in deeply Democratic California, the most populous state in the nation. Three more states won by Mr. Biden — Colorado, Hawaii and New Jersey — have not yet certified their results. When they do, Mr. Biden will have 306 Electoral College votes to Trump's 232.

    Mr. Trump and his allies have brought at least 50 legal cases trying to overturn the results in the swing states Mr. Biden won — mainly Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. More than 30 have been rejected or dropped, according to an AP tally.

    Mr. Trump and his allies have also raised the far-fetched notion that Republican state legislatures in those states could appoint a rival set of electors pledged to Mr. Trump.

    But state Republican leaders have rejected that approach, and it would likely be futile in any case. According to federal law, both chambers of Congress would need to vote to accept a competing slate of electors. If they don't, the electors appointed by the states' governors — all pledged to Mr. Biden in these cases — must be used.

    The last remaining move to block the election would be the quixotic effort to vote down the electors in Congress.

    This tactic has been tried — a handful of congressional Democrats in 2000, 2004 and 2016 objected to officially making both George W. Bush and Mr. Trump president. But the numbers were not enough to block the two men from taking office.

    • Kamala Harris announces new staff picks, marking first time women will hold top 3 spots in VP’s office


    On Thursday, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris added three women to her roster of top aides, marking the first time in history that the top three positions in the U.S. vice president’s office will be held by women.

    Harris, who is the first woman, Black American and South Asian American to be elected VP, announced on Twitter that she was appointing Tina Flournoy as her chief of staff, Rohini Kosoglu as her domestic policy advisor and Nancy McEldowney as her national security advisor. Harris’ appointment of three women to top aide positions follows the announcement that Harris and President-elect Joe Biden will also have an all-female communications team, which ties in with Biden’s commitment to “building an administration that looks like America.”: Kamala Harris appoints all women to top 3 spots in VP office - https://twitter.com/KamalaHarris/sta...01828218785793

    • Biden administration on track to be most LGBTQ-inclusive in U.S. history


    President-elect Joe Biden has repeatedly vowed to make LGBTQ rights a priority in his administration. But he won’t be working alone: The former vice president has already tapped LGBTQ appointees for several key roles and gay rights advocates are hopeful that more will be named, including the first out Cabinet member confirmed by the Senate. There’s also a push, should an opening become available, for him to nominate the first openly LGBTQ justice to the Supreme Court.

    The Biden-Harris transition team has promoted the president-elect's “commitment to building an administration that looks like America.”

    On Sunday, Karine Jean-Pierre, an out lesbian and chief of staff for Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, was announced as deputy press secretary, and Pili Tobar, an immigration rights advocate and former aide to Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., was named deputy White House communications director. Tobar, a lesbian, also worked as a communications director for the Biden campaign.

    In November, Carlos Elizondo, who is gay and was Biden’s social secretary when Biden was vice president, was named White House social secretary.: https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-...story-n1250010
