On the money: Yellen’s next milestone is name on US currency

Thu, Dec 8, 2022 at 1:58 pm

Janet Yellen is unveiling the first U.S. currency bearing her signature, marking the first time that U.S. bank notes will bear the name of a female treasury secretary. It’s one more milestone for the pathbreaking economist who’s now presiding over what may be the most important role of her career. She’s serving as a leading strategist in the Western world’s economic warfare against Russia over the invasion of Ukraine. Now, at the halfway point of President Biden’s term, Yellen has put to rest rumors she might be ready to leave the administration early and is strapping in for more economic and political battles ahead.

McCarthy Calls for Mayorkas’ Resignation

Wed, Nov 23, 2022 at 1:31 pm

***MCCARTHY-MAYORKAS-

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called on Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign over his handling of the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that GOP lawmakers will consider impeachment next year if he does not step down. More on this from Congressional Correspondent Bernie Bennett.

McCarthy said at a press conference in El Paso, Texas, on Tuesday, “If Secretary Mayorkas does not resign, House Republicans will investigate, every order, every action and every failure will determine whether we can begin impeachment inquiry.”

McCarthy cited the Department of Homeland Security head’s statements to Congress that the border is under control, record border crossing numbers and his ending of the “Remain in Mexico” asylum policy instituted during the Trump administration as reasons for resignation.

McCarthy was nominated by House Republicans to serve as Speaker in the next Congress last week during a closed-door vote.

A San Antonio theatre is canceling all its drag shows

VERBATIM: The decision follows release of video shot by the Texas Family Project at a recent performance by a local group that showed a drag performer stroking a small girl’s hair on stage while the child gave him money. The performers wore scanty clothing, sang profane songs and brandished rainbow flags with the number 666 on them. The Starlighter theatre says there will be no more drag shows through the rest of the year. Some Texans want a law to ban children from such events. Michael Harrington, SRN News.
