    As President Joe Biden was sworn in Wednesday in Washington, Pennsylvania officials offered congratulations to the Scranton native. “Today a scrappy kid from Scranton will become the 46th president of the United States,” said Gov. Tom Wolf. “Looking forward to getting to work rebuilding our economy, fighting the spread of COVID-19, and realizing the vision of a better future for everyone." Biden takes office two weeks after a mob gathered in support of former President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol, interrupting a joint session of Congress convened to verify the results of the 2020 election. Biden spoke of unity in his inaugural address before heading to the Oval Office to undo a handful of his predecessor’s executive orders. “On this January day, my whole soul is in this: Bringing America together, uniting our people, uniting our nation,” Biden said he addressed the nation for the first time...
    At least 65 Americans are now infected with 'super-covid,' according to a DailyMail.com tally.  Indiana on Monday became the ninth state in the US to find a case of the more infectious B117 variant first identified in the UK, where it set off a new wave of national lockdowns.  The state's health department simply announced the identification of the variant through testing, and did not reveal any details about the person who has variant, if others might have it or where within the state the case was found.  Indiana joins Colorado, California, Florida, New York, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Texas, each of which already has at least one case of the new variant.  Its case comes amid sharp criticism that the US is not doing enough to detect, track and prevent the spread of new more contagious variants of coronavirus.  At least 65 people in the US have more...
    At least 62 Americans are now infected with 'super-covid,' according to a DailyMail.com tally.  Texas and Pennsylvania each reported their first cases on Thursday, while a new federal CDC dashboard shows that Florida's cases of the highly contagious UK variant have exploded to 22.  The CDC says there may be more US cases than the 52 counted by its database, but that many have been confirmed by the federal agency, according to CNN.   California has at least 34 cases, with a cluster of 32 reported by San Diego County and two infections with the new variant reported by San Bernardino County.    A total of 38 US cases have been identified, including one in each Pennsylvania, Florida, Georgia and New York, two in Colorado and 32 in California, where there is a cluster in San Diego.   At least seven states have cases of the B117 variant, a CDC official told DailyMail.com this earlier...
    Rudy Giuliani, personal lawyer of US President Donald Trump, looks on during an appearance before the Michigan House Oversight Committee in Lansing, Michigan on December 2, 2020. - The president's attorneys, led by Rudy Giuliani, have made numerous allegations of election fraud.Jeff Kowalsky | AFP | Getty Images President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani blasted Republican state lawmakers in Pennsylvania on Friday, saying they "let down America," as the Trump campaign effort to reverse Joe Biden's national presidential election win seemed headed for failure. Giuliani's tirade against Republicans in the Pennsylvania legislature, suggesting they were "covering up for Dem crimes," came after GOP leaders there on Thursday issued a statement saying they would not appoint electors for Trump to the Electoral College. The Democratic former vice president Biden won the Keystone State's popular vote, which entitles him to all 20 Electoral College votes from the state. But Giuliani and...
    Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and chief campaign legal adviser Jenna Ellis listen to Trump's deranged musings Wednesday at a Senate committee hearing in Gettysburg, PA. Donald Trump’s efforts to discredit the election results are descending into pure parody. But Trump, who is desperate to overturn Pennsylvania's certified vote, wasn't desperate enough apparently to appear in person at a Pennsylvania state Senate committee hearing alongside his lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who in recent days has had several close brushes with COVID-positive contacts, including his son, Andrew. The Pennsylvania Senate’s GOP’s hearing on "election issues and irregularities,” staged at a Gettysburg hotel ballroom, turned into sheer farce. Lit like vampires at twilight shortly before a nighttime feeding, Giuliani and chief campaign legal adviser Jenna Ellis hunched over a microphone as Ellis held her cell to a microphone so Trump could whip up some frothy election fraud conspiracies the likes of which America has never seen—and, indeed, America still hasn't seen in the...
            by Dan McCaleb   Presumptive President-elect Joe Biden Saturday night said he was given a mandate by voters to restore unity and civility after what he called four years of divisiveness under President Donald Trump. Addressing America from his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, hours after claiming victory over Trump, Biden said he would lead by example and be the president of all Americans, not just those who voted for him. “The people of this nation have spoken,” he said. “They’ve delivered us a clear victory, convincing victory.” Trump has not conceded and is legally contesting results in a number of states. His legal team held a news conference Saturday in Philadelphia shortly after national media outlets called the race for Biden, claiming widespread voter fraud. Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani said at the news conference that a number of federal lawsuits will be filed Monday in...
    In a victory tweet, after Democratic candidate Joe Biden was projected to become the next president of the United States, the former vice president promised to be “a President for all Americans.”  “America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country,” Biden wrote, accompanied by a video of different Americans across the country to the tune of “America the Beautiful.”  “The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans — whether you voted for me or not,” he continued. “I will keep the faith that you have placed in me.” Fox News on Saturday projected Biden to win the White House, after calling Pennsylvania and Nevada in his favor.  "I am honored and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and in Vice President-elect Harris," Biden said in an earlier...
    Sen. Ted Cruz shot back at Pennsylvania’s Democratic attorney general for telling him to “stay out of” the state’s disputed tabulation of presidential election votes. “When you’re breaking the law, ignoring court orders, counting ballots in secret & threatening to steal the presidency, it’s not ‘PA’s business,’” the Texas Republican tweeted Friday. “It’s America’s business, and we have the right to expect votes will be counted (1) fairly, (2) w/ transparency & (3) NOT in secret.” When you’re breaking the law, ignoring court orders, counting ballots in secret & threatening to steal the presidency, it’s not “PA’s business.” It’s America’s business, and we have the right to expect votes will be counted (1) fairly, (2) w/ transparency & (3) NOT in secret. https://t.co/jkkyB0Bc0q— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) November 6, 2020 Cruz appeared on Fox News with Sean Hannity Thursday night, echoing the president’s concerns of voter fraud and an overall...
    He looks set to inherit a country wracked with stark divisions in the midst of a deadly pandemic that has so far claimed the lives of more than 230,000 Americans. But an ability to overcome profound tragedy and heal deep wounds is a skill Joe Biden has had to acquire long before his presidency bid.  The Democrat looks poised to succeed on his third attempt to become president, and at the age of 77, could become the nation's oldest ever leader.  Aside from his previously thwarted political ambitions, it is his family trauma which has indelibly marked the potential new leader of the free world. Just a month after being elected for the first time in 1972, Biden lost his first wife Neilia and their one-year-old daughter Naomi in a car crash, with sons Beau and Hunter also injured.   In 2015, Beau died just 10 days after being admitted to...
    With the election still up in the air and several critical battleground states still uncalled, several conspiracy theories have emerged suggesting that the election was stolen from President Donald Trump. President Donald Trump has claimed the election is being rigged in a series of tweets. “Last night I was leading, often solidly, in many key States, in almost all instances Democrat run & controlled,” Trump said. “Then, one by one, they started to magically disappear as surprise ballot dumps were counted. VERY STRANGE, and the “pollsters” got it completely & historically wrong!” Last night I was leading, often solidly, in many key States, in almost all instances Democrat run & controlled.

    By JONATHAN LEMIRE, ZEKE MILLER, WILL WEISSERT and ALEXANDRA JAFFE, Associated Press PHILADEPHIA (AP) — President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden have one last chance to make their case to voters in critical battleground states on Monday, the final full day of a campaign that has laid bare their dramatically different visions for tackling the nation’s pressing problems and for the office of the presidency itself. The candidates are seeking to lead a nation at a crossroads, gripped by a historic pandemic that is raging anew in nearly every corner of the country and a reckoning over race. More than 93 million people have already voted and each campaign insists it has a pathway to victory, though Biden's options for picking up the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win are more plentiful. Trump is banking on a surge of enthusiasm from his most loyal supporters. The president's...

    CBS’s “This Morning” highlighted the enthusiasm of President Donald Trump’s supporters outside his Tuesday night campaign rally in Erie, PA. Reporter Tony Dokoupil said, “In our election series “At America’s Crossroads,” we are finding fresh evidence of voter enthusiasm here in in Erie, Pennsylvania. Now you can only vote once in America that is bedrock, but people who plan to cast their ballot for President Trump may be voting with a bit more passion. Pollsters have found that two-thirds of President Trump supporters say they strongly back their candidate compared to just 46 % of Joe Biden’s supporters, who tend to be driven by opposition to the president. To learn what is behind those feelings among Trump supporters, we talked to members of the crowd at Mr. Trump’s rally last night here in Erie.” An unidentified man at the rally said, “Trump is a real patriot. So am I. So if...
    Conservative activists have launched a cross-country bus tour in support of Amy Coney Barrett, who has been nominated by President Donald Trump to the US Supreme Court. The group, Concerned Women for America, attended the nomination announcement in the White House Rose Garden on September 26, which ended up being a coronavirus super-spreader event. Guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advise quarantining at home for 14 days to monitor any symptoms. Instead, the women are traveling in a bright pink 'Women for Amy' bus and will make 40 stops in 12 swing states, including a prayer event on Capitol Hill.   Concerned Women for America has launched a cross-country tour in support of President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett (above) The group is traveling in a pink 'Women for Amy' bus and will make 40 stops in 12 swing states, including a prayer...
    SHANKSVILLE, Pennsylvania — President Trump mixed warnings to terrorists with tributes to the American spirit in a somber speech at the spot marking where Flight 93 crashed in a rural Pennsylvania field on 9/11. “The heroes of Flight 93 are an everlasting reminder that no matter the danger, no matter the threat, no matter the odds, America will always rise up, stand tall, and fight back,” he said in front of marble slabs etched with the names of the 40 passengers and crew who died as they fought with hijackers for control of the plane. Democratic nominee Joe Biden was due to follow Trump in making the pilgrimage to the grassy field in southwestern Pennsylvania later in the day. Although the day of remembrance marked a brief pause in hostilities, their choice of location is a reminder that this is an election year. Pennsylvania is a must-win state...
    America First Action, President Trump's designated super PAC, is launching a $22 million advertising blitz targeting Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden across key battleground states. New digital and cable and broadcast television ads will run between now and Election Day in Florida, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Ohio. "Safety and the economy are the top issues with the most intensity among the swing voters we are targeting," America First Action Communications Director Kelly Sadler said. "Trump has been at the forefront of both of these issues — rebuilding the economy after coronavirus and talking about safety and supporting our nation's law enforcement," she added. "We've seen a shift in what voters care about, with safety now dominating the conversation. As such, we've tailored our ads to this messaging." The ad campaign taps protests in states such as Wisconsin, arguing that a Biden administration will fail to protect small business owners. One ad...

    A Trump-boosting super PAC is launching new adverts in Pennsylvania to highlight Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s opposition to fracking. The campaign sees the issue as crucial to holding a state that Donald Trump won narrowly in 2016, and where recent polls suggest the president is better trusted on energy issues — albeit narrowly. Launching the 30-second television ad, America First Action said: “Joe Biden, and his radical, phony running mate Kamala Harris, will destroy Pennsylvania’s fracking industry.” Pennsylvania is the second-largest producer of natural gas after Texas and has more than 300,000 jobs connected to energy, with fracking concentrated in the west of the state. The ad will be broadcast in Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Johnstown, Erie, and Wilkes-Barre. A recent study by the Global Energy Institute of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce concluded that a ban on fracking would cost the state as much as $260 billion by 2025....
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence will make an appearance at a manufacturing plant near Pittsburgh on Friday as part of a new campaign effort showcasing the nation’s economy making a comeback. President Donald Trump had planned to run for reelection on the back of a strong economy, a hope dashed by the coronavirus pandemic and ensuing economic devastation, including a soaring unemployment rate. But he seized on a better-than-expected jobs report released last week, and his campaign quickly made an ad proclaiming “the great American comeback has begun.” That theme will continue Friday on the “Great American Comeback Tour,” which is being organized by America First Policies, a nonprofit associated with the America First Action super PAC supporting Trump’s reelection. Other administration officials, including Ivanka Trump and trade adviser Peter Navarro, may appear at the tour’s later dates. Officials said the event is just one of the several...
