President Biden hits the ground running with a list of rapid-fire executive orders

President Joe Biden may be viewed by some as a moderate figure, but he came into office with a raft of big promises and the knowledge that he needs to move quickly. For one thing, the whole state of Washington, D.C., on this Inauguration Day—what with the military protection following an attempted coup, and the flags representing the hundreds of thousands of lives lost to a pandemic—makes it completely obvious that other guy left behind a disaster. So, in the spirit of getting things done at malarkey-less speed, Biden had a whole set of executive orders ready to sign as soon as he stepped inside on Wednesday afternoon. Then he got out an ordinary human pen and signed them. Some of these orders immediately address the worst actions of the outgoing person. Others hit hard at areas that have been simply overlooked for four years. And some are first steps toward moving the nation along a path that will be followed up by legislation. Or, as the White House puts it … xPresident Biden assumes office at a time when our nation is facing crises that demand urgent action.

Next up: Swamping Trump in investigations, litigation to stop him from creating 'shadow presidency'

Donald Trump's parting words to a smattering of his supporters just before leaving the White House for the last time were telling. «We will be back in some form,» Trump promised them. It is now critical that we turn our attention to making sure that can never happen through a series of investigations and potential prosecutions that immediately await Trump. As New York Attorney General Letitia James noted Wednesday, the state's civil investigations of Trump continues even though «the circus has left town.» Surely, that also applies to the Manhattan DA's lengthy criminal investigation of Trump and his business for financial fraud, not to mention the impending Senate trial of Trump.

McConnell's obstruction of Biden's agenda has already begun

The first half of this Inauguration Day has been devoted, at least rhetorically, to unity. But Sen. Mitch McConnell is still in charge of the Senate Republicans, and he's still Mitch McConnell. The chamber is evenly divided, which does one good thing: It makes Vice President Kamala Harris one of the most—if not the most—powerful VPs the nation has ever had. McConnell seems intent on making her work. In his discussions with new Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on power-sharing in the split chamber, McConnell is insisting that the agreement contain a commitment from Schumer to retain the filibuster. That tells you everything you need to know about McConnell's intentions for helping President Biden, House Speaker Pelosi, and the Senate save the country. Staff for each leader had been operating on the assumption that the power-sharing agreement from 2001 would be the default for this time around. Then McConnell threw the filibuster curveball. Schumer spokesperson Justin Goodman said that their view is that «the fairest, most reasonable and easiest path forward is to adopt the 2001 bipartisan agreement without extraneous changes from either side.» McConnell's spokesperson told the Post: «Discussions on all aspects of the power-sharing agreement will continue over the next several days.»

 “At that time it wasn’t easy for me to be in the public with my camera because the country was very sensitive to reporters like me,” photojournalist Hazir Reka tells a group of muralists. “Being in the public with a camera was no different to being in public with a weapon because of how much it could affect reality.” Reka’s referring to a tumultuous time in Kosovo’s history when the region was in the midst of war, an experience he shares with the artists who traveled to the region in September 2020 for Mural Fest Kosovo.

Surreal Scenes and Pixelation Overlay Vintage Artworks in Hybrid Oil Paintings by André Schulze

André Schulze scours dusty thrift store bins and private advertisements for vintage paintings and photographs created in the first half of the 20th Century. The German artist restores the found artworks and then dramatically alters them by working directly on the canvas, layering each rendering with boldly new scenes: a stodgy bookworm finds himself in a sea of fish, an elderly woman peers out her window only to see a neighboring home ablaze, and a vintage portrait is transformed into a feathered hybrid creature.
