Biden signs executive orders addressing the economy
"Biden has turned to executive orders in his first days of office says he looks to address the economic crisis brought on by the pandemic. He's also pursuing a massive coronavirus aid bill Can Walsh White House and political analyst for U. S. News and World Report joined w. T. O. P S John Aaron to break down Biden's first few days in office and some of the past presidents he resembles well particular FDR going back a long way to 1933 when he first became president. He had a huge depression to deal with the worst economic calamity we've ever had, and his philosophy was similar to what Biden seems to be doing action action action. The country wanted the president to do something to act boldly. And you seeing that with President Biden again today with executive orders. They're going to continue indefinitely pushing this $1.9 trillion stimulus bill moving to try many different things to get the economy corrected, but mostly to get the coronavirus under control and to get the vaccines out. That's his first priority right now. And probably should be given how difficult that issue is for people to deal with very quickly on Lyndon Johnson. Of course, he took over after President Kennedy was assassinated. He also wanted to show action himself, particularly in areas of diversity and racial justice with writing is also doing so. I would say those two presidents come to mind and you see a lot of echoes in what Biden is doing when you compare them to Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson. The president, of course pitches himself is a compromise or experienced in the Senate. But we're hearing that some Republicans say there's no way they're gonna go for some of the elements and at one point trillion $1.9 trillion.8 bills. So where does this go? I think the thing we have to remember here, of course, is that this is vital opening bid in his attempt to get a lot of this legislation through. He's been around a long time. 36 years in the Senate years as vice president, he is known as a guy who knows how the Congress works. And so I think we have to realize that this is his the start of the neck. Negotiations started the deal making there are not good signs from the Republicans that they'll go along with him. There's a lot of pushback of the same time he's getting the sense from the left on his in his party to push further in government activism, and so on, So it is a difficult line. He's walking here, but I think That there's the potential particularly initially here that he will come to some kind of a compromise. It'll be difficult, but what he's got out there now is sort of the whistle ist. I think when he gets to the real bargaining, I think he's gonna have to borrow back off from a lot of that. But I think it's possible

Trump floated appointing Sidney Powell special counsel on fraud
"President Trump is said to be weighing increasingly desperate steps as he tries to reverse the results of the election there, reportedly, including naming a special counsel to investigate allegations of voter fraud and even imposing martial law. Joining our John Aaron from or was Ken Walsh, White House and political analyst for U. S. News and World Report might be that the title of that movie the year of Living Dangerously I've seen we have a sense of the President Trump really can't give up the idea that he won this election, even though he did not. Joe Biden won quite clearly and that's been confirmed by the Electoral, College and court cases of that the president has had filed have been thrown out. Challenging the results. But I think what's happening here is that there's just the fact that these solutions and President Trump smarter mean considered indicates that he hasn't really gotten past this idea that he could perhaps stay in the White House and overturn the results of the election. What's got a lot of people in Washington anxious is how serious he is about considering these things now. Lot of the reporting indicates that a lot of these ideas such as martial law to rerun the election, using the military having a special counsel named Sidney Powell, who was really conspiracy theorist to investigate voter fraud, things like that, that if he's really considering them, maybe he has some other tricks up his sleeve, more or less to throw a monkey wrench into the into the election process, And that's what has a lot of people concerned how serious he is about this. But even the fact it's being talked about at the White House is quite remarkable. I don't I don't recall anything in 30 years of covering the White House similar to this right is his goal that you have pointed out before. I'm getting this before the Supreme Court just totally out the window. At this point. I think it is. There's still some cases that could get there. But that decision that they issued by the week ago really did set back President Trump's ideas about having Supreme Court side with him. I did want to mention also that January 6th is another important moment because that's when the House and Senate supposed to meet in joint session to consider the electoral college affirmation that Joe Biden one. There's a lot of ways that people could make mischief during that point, and President Trump is calling for massive rallies to put pressure on Congress to overturn the election, So he looks like that will definitely happen again. Quite extraordinary that he's going to these lengths. But that is where we are. And I think that January 6th is probably the next date that people should look at for, um, another challenge to this whole

GOP's Capitol Hill correspondent Mitchell Miller has more this debate was much better and more civil than the first presidential debate.

Pence sidestepped the question related to the so called Super spreader event at the White House, and Senator Harris didn't answer when Pence asked her if Joe Biden would try to pack the Supreme Court if he's elected, neither candidate did anything major to hurt their respective campaigns. And while it was a solid debate, it's not likely it will change many voters minds and we're hearing your thoughts. On last night's debate. Frederick of Northwest D. C, called into the TalkBack line and said he was impressed with Senator Kamala Harris was more civil side scored.

Now Janet from Gaithersburg shared her disappointment that neither candidate answered questions head on. I thought that the debate was like a jeopardy show. Where the debaters gave their answers.

Afghan government meets with Taliban political chief as Afghanistan peace talks begin
"The Taliban and delegates appointed by the Afghan government have come together for historic talks aimed at ending decades of war and Bahrain has become the latest Arab nation to normalize relations with Israel. W T O PEACE John Aaron talked with Mario Mancuso, global affairs expert and former Pentagon official about how significant the Afghan talks are. I think they're very significant. Obviously, it's not an agreement, and there's a lot of work to do. But when you think of a recent Afghan history where every transfer of power has been at the end of a barrel of a gun The fact that they're deciding to talk. I think it's important and these air talks that are aimed to shape the Afghani political future. And so in that sense, I do think they're historic, but again, lots of difficulties that lie ahead. So what specifically is being talked about things like a ceasefire. So yeah, there's probably three key issues that are on the agenda. First is the one you mentioned a permanent cease fire. And obviously this is critical because the people of Afghanistan have suffered for many, many years and, you know, folks have died and been injured there. But the key point is a framework again for the governance of political governance of Afghanistan for the future of the Taliban, police said. They want an Islamic form of government What that means is unclear. But the tension there is issues of social equality, particularly for women and ethnic minorities. In Afghanistan, you might remember just 20 years ago, right women were not allowed to participate in politics. They weren't allowed to go to school. They weren't even allowed to leave the house without a male relative. And so these kinds of issues this tension and how it's resolved again peacefully in the context of discussions. That's what's critical and the forcing function here. Of course, is that The U. S and its allies are going to pull out. Troops have agreed to pull out troops, frankly as a condition of these peace talks by the spring of 2021. So that's the window in which they have to try to resolve this and those with the tension that they have to try to resolve.

And combine that with defense that was very very soft and from which allowed to do whatever they wanted in the running game in on plenty of time in the pocket targeted.
