    Despite Questions, President Trump Issues Executive Order To Create Temporary Payroll Tax Cut

    On August 6, 2020, the Senate adjourned without passing a stimulus package.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R KY) wasn''t involved in the talks, leaving Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D CA) to work directly with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

    As of Friday night, the sides reported that they had not reached an agreement.Today, apparently frustrated with Congress' inaction, President Trump signed Executive Orders that would alter the current scheme.

  • Between their lines, PM Narendra Modi, Mohan Bhagwat frame how a promise was delivered

    Indeed, many in the Sangh Parivar, in private, attributed the BJP s 2004 defeat to the ideological compromises made by Atal Bihari Vajpayee in the name of coalition politics.

    In contrast, Modi, on both Article 370 and the Ram temple, has, to the Sangh, underlined what electoral power can achieve and, in the process, reinforced his political credibility like no other leader in the BJP.And this, largely on his own terms.

    Significantly, on the temple, Modi had resisted pressure from a section in the Sangh to bring in a law and, instead, had advised patience until the court verdict.

    When it came last November and that, too, as a 5 0 ruling effectively in favour of the temple, it was the perfect storm he needed and was waiting for.

  • Africa at par with Pakistan, Afghanistan in terrorism, here's how terrorism grew in the Dark Continent

    NEW DELHI: Any conversation on radical Islamic terrorism leads us to the images of the war torn Middle East, North Africa (MENA) region or South Asian countries.However, the imageries might change soon as another part of world might replace the dominance of the said regions.

    Trends have started suggesting so.

    For example, according to the Global Terrorism Index 2019 (GTI), the number of terror related deaths in Sub Saharan Africa has already surpassed the number of deaths in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

    Season Six is called ;Boosted; and will welcome a brand new crafting mechanic to the Battle Royale title.In the Boosted launch trailer, a space rocket is about to fire from what looks like World s Edge.

    Amidst the chaos below, new legend Rampant is seen unleashing a volley of bullets onto her unsuspecting enemies from what appears to be a Gatling gun which she also holds in her artwork.

    Unlike in the trailer for Loba, the Boosted trailer does not clearly hint towards any of Rampant s abilities, but being able to set up a turret is likely one of them.

    India is losing the battle — 5 things Modi must do to rescue his image and China policy

    This could not have happened so soon after many Indian consumers called for a boycott of Chinese products unless this is just another way for the Communist Party leadership to check how far India will go with its economic counter measures in retaliation for Chinese aggression on our borders. If we blink once more, we will lose the battle.We blinked once when we even agreed to negotiate a de escalation, but several rounds of talks between military commanders and conversations at the level of the External Affairs Minister and the National Security Adviser have produced zilch.
