Supreme Court: California cannot stop indoor church gatherings.

Late Friday the supreme court lifted some restrictions placed on church gatherings in California. In two cases where churches had sued over COVID-19 restrictions the court said California can’t ban indoor worship. The justices did allow regulation. Churches in California can only operate at 25% capacity and may not engage in chanting or singing. The court declined to stop the ban on indoor chanting and singing that was put in place last summer.  South Bay United Pentecostal Church in Chula Vista and Pasadena-based Harvest Rock Church and Harvest International Ministry, requested emergency action by the Supreme court.

Stimulus check updates: Senate OKs fast-track of coronavirus relief package; Biden meets with House Dems in push for $1.9 trillion plan

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden met Friday with leading House Democrats who aim to put his $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package on a fast track to becoming law, drawing on new signs of strain in the economy to push for its approval. “We can’t do too much here, we can do too little,” he told them. “Real, live people are hurting. And we can fix it. And we can fix it and the irony of all ironies is when we help them, we are also helping our competitive capacity, through the remainder of this decade.” The Senate early Friday approved a measure that would let Democrats muscle the relief plan through the chamber without Republican support. Vice President Kamala Harris was in the chair to cast the tie-breaking vote, her first. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || [])....

Trump refuses to testify in Unconstitutional Impeachment.

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Democrats on Thursday asked Donald Trump to testify under oath for his Senate impeachment trial, challenging him to respond to their charge that he incited a violent mob to storm the Capitol. A Trump adviser said the former president won’t testify. Although Democrats might not have the power to force Trump’s testimony, the request from House impeachment managers is part of their overall effort to put the violent events of Jan. 6 on the record for history and hold him accountable for his words. Democrats will look to use his refusal to testify against him as they argue that the ex-president has avoided responsibility for his actions. Hours after the Democrats’ request was revealed, Trump adviser Jason Miller dismissed the trial as “an unconstitutional proc...

CDC director says schools can safely reopen without vaccinating teachers

Teachers do not need to get vaccinated against Covid-19 before schools can safely reopen, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday. “There is increasing data to suggest that schools can safely reopen and that safe reopening does not suggest that teachers need to be vaccinated,” CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told reporters during a White House news briefing on Covid-19. “Vaccinations of teachers is not a prerequisite for safely reopening schools,” she added. During a press briefing later Wednesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki walked back Walensky’s comments, saying that they were not “official guidance” from the CDC.

A new GOP plan would include a third round of stimulus payments but at a lower level than those backed by President Joe Biden.

The plan will come after Biden’s own $1.9 trillion stimulus package that includes $1,400 in direct stimulus payments. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said the new plan is in response to the president’s “calls for unity.” “We want to work in good faith with you and your administration to meet the health, economic and societal challenges of the (COVID-19) crisis,” the Senators wrote, according to the Washington Post.

Washington (CNN)Ten Republican senators on Sunday announced plans to unveil a roughly $600 billion Covid-19 relief package, a counter proposal to President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion plan meant to force relief talks with the White House back to the middle.
