Biden to sign executive orders on Day 1, amid high alert for inauguration

Joe Biden’s top aide said Saturday the incoming president would sign about a dozen executive orders on his first day in office, as police fearing violence from Trump supporters staged a nationwide security operation ahead of the inauguration. Authorities in Washington, where Wednesday’s inauguration will take place, said they arrested a man with a loaded handgun and more than 500 rounds of ammunition at a security checkpoint, underscoring the tension in the US capital which is resembling a war zone. However, the man’s family told US media he was a security guard, rejecting the idea he was intent on causing harm. Incoming Biden chief of staff Ron Klain said in a memo to new White House senior staff that the executive orders would address the pandemic, the ailing US economy, climate change and racial injustice in America. “All of these crises demand urgent action,” Klain said in the memo. “In his first ten days in office, President-elect Biden will take decisive action to address these four crises, prevent other urgent and irreversible harms, and restore America’s place in the world,” Klain added. As he inherits the White House from Donald Trump, Biden’s plate is overflowing with acute challenges. The US is fast approaching 400,000 dead from the Covid-19 crisis and logging well over a million new cases a week as the coronavirus spreads out of control. The economy is ailing, with 10 million fewer jobs available compared to the start of the pandemic. Biden this week unveiled plans to seek $1.9 trillion to revive the economy through new stimulus payments and other aid, and plans a blitz to accelerate America’s stumbling Covid vaccine rollout effort. On Inauguration Day Biden, as previously promised, will sign orders including ones for the US to rejoin the Paris climate accord and reverse Trump’s ban on entry of people from certain Muslim majority countries, Klain said. “President-elect Biden will take action — not just to reverse the gravest damages of the Trump administration — but also to start moving our country forward,” Klain said. – 500 rounds of ammunition – Meanwhile, Washington was under a state of high alert after a mob of President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol on January 6. The assault left five people dead, including a police officer. Security officials have warned that armed pro-Trump extremists, possibly carrying explosives, pose a threat to Washington as well as state capitals over the coming week. Thousands of National Guard troops have been deployed in Washington and streets have been blocked off downtown with concrete barriers. On Friday night, police arrested a Virginia man at a security checkpoint where he tried to use an “unauthorized” credential to access the restricted area where Biden will be inaugurated. As officers checked the credential against the authorized access list, one noticed decals on the back of Wesley Beeler’s pick-up truck that said “Assault Life,” with an image of a rifle, and another with the message: “If they come for your guns, give ’em your bullets first,” according to a document filed in Washington, DC Superior Court. Under questioning, Beeler told officers he had a Glock handgun in the vehicle. A search uncovered a loaded handgun, more than 500 rounds of ammunition, shotgun shells and a magazine for the gun, the court document said. Beeler was arrested on charges including possession of an unregistered firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition. But Beeler’s father Paul told The New York Times his son had been working as a security guard on the Capitol grounds. Asked if the younger Beeler supported a peaceful transition of power, Paul Beeler told the newspaper, “That’s the reason he’s there.” In addition to the heavy security presence in Washington, law enforcement was out in force in state capitals around the country to ward off potential political violence. Mass protests that had been planned for the weekend did not materialize on Saturday, with security far outnumbering Trump supporters at several fortified statehouses, US media reported. In St Paul, Minnesota, for example, hundreds of law enforcement officers, some armed with long guns, ringed the Capitol with National Guard troops providing backup.  The number of protesters totaled about 50......»»

Scottie would have loved one more year with Bright and Prince

All those playoff exits at the hands of San Beda University still pains Scottie Thompson. “Lahat-lahat,” he answered when asked in The Prospects Pod which of University of Perpetual Help’s Final Four losses to the Red Lions hurt the most. “Nasira pangarap naming lahat eh.” Despite bowing out to the red and white in three of his five years as an Alta, however, the 6-foot-1 playmaker said his most painful defeat actually came from Colegio de San Juan de Letran. “Actually, hindi San Beda yung pinakamasakit,” he shared. “Yung pinakamasakit is yung last year ko. Non-bearing na sa Letran tapos may bearing sa amin, dapat papasok kami ng Final Four pag manalo kami.” Thompson was talking about the wine and gold’s last elimination round assignment in NCAA 91 - a closely contested season that saw six squads all have a shot at the Final Four. Before that game, Perps stood at joint third at 11-6 and a win would have staked claim to the fourth and final playoff berth, thereby closing the door on Mapua University, Jose Rizal University, and Arellano University. On the other hand, the Knights had already clinched a top two finish - though they were still in a dead heat for the top-seed with archrival San Beda. In the end, Letran triumphed. In the end, Perpetual stood on the outside looking into the playoff picture. And in the end, that was the former MVP’s last game in the NCAA. “Dahil dun sa talong yun, hindi kami nakapasok ng Final Four sa mismong last year ko pa. Hindi ko makakalimutan yun,” he said. Even more, that Altas team was fully loaded as aside from Thompson, it had future MVPs Bright Akhuetie and Prince Eze. If only he had one more go-round, the now-27-year-old has no doubt that he, Akhuetie, and Eze would be back with a vengeance come Season 92. “Siguro, kung nabigyan pa ako ng isang chance na makasama sila, may chance kaming makabawi. Isang year lang kaming nagkasabay eh,” he said. He then continued, “Kulang lang ng isang taon. Siguro, kung isang taon pa, baka sakali lang.” A Scottie Thompson completely comfortable with Bright Akhuetie and Prince Eze? That sounds like a recipe for success for Perpetual and a recipe for disaster for the rest of the league. —— Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
