The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe is offering a lot of improvements for just a little more money … or less.

The all-new full-size SUV will have the same starting price as the outgoing 2020 model, which recently got a mid-year $1,000 bump compared to the 2019 trucks.

The new Tahoe gains an independent rear suspension for improved ride quality and interior space. Two V8 engines will be offered across the lineup, along with a 3.0-liter turbodiesel inline-six-cylinder. Computer-controlled shock absorbers and an adjustable air suspension will be offered on some models.

A Chevrolet spokesperson told Automotive News that the larger Suburban models will be priced roughly $2,700 more than comparable Tahoes.

Coronavirus outbreak ‘very grave threat’ for rest of world: WHO

A day after a team of World Health Organization (WHO) medical experts arrived in China to help investigate the deadly coronavirus outbreak, the health agency’s director said the virus poses “a very grave threat for the rest of the world.”

Over 1,000 people in China have died after contracting the virus, which has sickened over 43,000 others globally. Just under 400 of those cases have been confirmed in countries outside of China.

EVACUEE CONFIRMED TO HAVE CORONAVIRUS IN CALIFORNIA

“With 99 percent of cases in China, this remains very much an emergency for that country, but one that holds a very grave threat for the rest of the world,” WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a video conference with hundreds of researchers on Tuesday.

In an appeal to researchers who had dialed in to the conference from all over the world, Tedros called for more collaboration in order to fast-track rapid diagnostic testing and vaccines.

“It’s hard to believe that just two months ago, this virus – which has come to captivate the attention of media, financial markets and political leaders – was completely unknown to us,” Tedros said, adding that there are still many unknowns about the virus including paths of transmission and exactly how it originated.

“To defeat this outbreak, we need answers to all those questions and more,” he said.

Tedros met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing last month and said it took about two weeks for the country to agree to allow an international team of experts to come to investigate the outbreak. The WHO team is being led by Canadian emergency expert Dr. Bruce Aylward, who arrived in the country on Monday.

“Bruce and his colleagues will be working with their Chinese counterparts to make sure we have the right expertise on the team to answer the right questions,” Tedros said. “We hope the rest of the team will join them as soon as possible. The team could range between 10 and 15.”

Burger King closing half of its locations in China amid coronavirus outbreak

Burger King is temporarily closing approximately half of its locations in China amid ongoing concerns over the novel coronavirus.

Jose Cil, the CEO of Restaurant Brands International Inc. — which owns Burger King, along with Popeyes and Tim Horton’s — confirmed the news on Friday, the same day Restaurant Brands International (RBI) posted its fourth-quarter earnings report.

Cil, however, has said that “most of the closures” were mandated by local officials in China, Bloomberg reports. He also suggested that many of the locations are based in malls that are being forced to close.

“It’s too early to tell what impact, if any, it’s going to have on short-term performance or results,” Cil said in a call following the report’s release, according to Bloomberg.

A representative for RBI was not immediately available to confirm exactly how many stores had closed, in which areas, or when they are expected to reopen.

The closure of approximately half of Burger King’s China locations follows similar closures from other global restaurant chains, including McDonald’s, Starbucks, KFC, Pizza Hut and Dairy Queen. Some brands were also instituting additional safety precautions at locations that were still operating, including McDonald’s, which distributed masks and took employees’ temperatures when they arrived for work.

Joe Biden says Democrats can run Mickey Mouse against Trump and have a chance

Former Vice President Joe Biden declared on Tuesday that Mickey Mouse would have a shot against President Trump in the general election, so voters shouldn’t worry about Bernie Sanders winning the nomination.

Biden, 77, appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” from New Hampshire and namesake co-host Joe Scarborough asked the 2020 presidential hopeful about the importance of winning Senate seats.

JOE NO! BIDEN CALLS N.H. WOMAN A ‘LYING, DOG-FACED PONY SOLDIER’ — WHAT WESTERNS WAS HE REFERRING TO, EXACTLY?

Joe Biden said Democrats “could run Mickey Mouse” against President Trump and have a chance.

“As intense as Democrats are about beating Donald Trump, getting Mitch McConnell out of the position as majority leader of the Senate, not that far behind,” Scarborough said. “Would a Bernie Sanders at the top of the ticket make it more likely that Democrats would lose important swing states and Mitch McConnell would become the majority leader again?”

Biden called Sanders a “decent guy” who “labeled himself a democratic socialist,” which he doesn’t feel will help in certain states, particularly the South.

MSNBC ANCHOR JOSHUA JOHNSON URGES MAINSTREAM MEDIA NOT TO INFLUENCE DEM PRIMARY VOTERS

“Talk about baggage, man, you know, you’re going into all the states as a democratic socialist,” Biden said. “How does somebody run and not have that label attached to them?”

Co-host Willie Geist said that some influential Democrats don’t think Sanders is electable as a result of the socialism tag, but Biden disagreed.

“I refuse to suggest any Democrat can lose. I think we could run Mickey Mouse against this president and have a shot.”

— Joe Biden

FOX NEWS’ STATE OF THE UNION RATINGS MORE THAN DOUBLE MSNBC AND CNN COMBINED, TOP BROADCAST NETS

“I refuse to suggest any Democrat can lose. I think we could run Mickey Mouse against this president and have a shot,” Biden said.

Co-host Mika Brzezinski responded, “Wow,” as the New Hampshire crowd applauded.

Biden has been quite the quote machine lately and recently made headlines for calling a college student a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier” during a campaign event. He has gone on the offensive following his disappointing fourth-place finish in last week’s disastrous Iowa caucuses, well behind rivals Sanders, Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren.

This past December in Iowa, Biden slammed a voter who questioned Hunter Biden’s business dealings as a “damn liar” who needed to take an “IQ test.”

The former vice president then seemingly called the man “fat” after deriding him for his self-professed sedentary lifestyle, although the Biden campaign said there was a misunderstanding.

Palestinian president to speak against Trump’s Middle East peace plan at UN Security Council meeting

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is set to speak before the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday to express his criticism and opposition to the Trump administration’s Middle East peace plan.

On Monday council members could not agree on a draft resolution, a setback for Abbas, who in the past few weeks has been traveling the globe in an attempt to scrub the deal.

Israel’s ambassador to the U.N., Danny Danon, told reporters Abbas should cancel his presentation and speak to Israelis in Jerusalem about his plans for peace.

TRUMP UNVEILS MAP OF PROPOSED STATE OF PALESTINE

Danon said he did not understand why Abbas was coming to New York this week to dismiss the peace plan.

“[Abbas should] cancel his trip to New York (and) come to Jerusalem speak in the Israeli Knesset to address the Israeli people and deliver a message of hope instead of a message of hate and incitement,” Danon said.

Danon’s comments echo those of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who alongside Israel’s main opposition leader, Benny Gantz, gave their full support to the Trump plan late last month as it was presented at the White House. Danon said Netanyahu would be ready to meet Abbas in Jerusalem or Ramallah.

The Trump plan, which was released on Jan. 28, called for a two-state solution with the creation of a future Palestinian state. Under the plan, the Palestinians would have to reach certain benchmarks to achieve statehood, including rooting out terrorism, political reforms such as freedom of speech and ending what’s known as “pay to slay,” in which the Palestinian Authority has paid families of terrorists.

WHAT IS TRUMP’S MIDDLE EAST PEACE PLAN?

The blueprint was backed up by an economic plan presented last year in Bahrain. The plan’s vision was to present the Palestinians and its neighbors a way to a new economy that could be worth up to $50 billion in aid, investment and funding. Abbas has rejected both parts of the administration’s peace plan.

In his upcoming speech to the security council, Abbas is reportedly going to present a list of what the Palestinians say are the many Israeli violations of international law (around 300) and present his own proposal for peace.

Just last week Jared Kushner, a senior advisor to the president and architect of the plan, told Fox News that Abbas was consulted. He said they had met four times.

“It’s a funny notion when [critics] say that the Palestinians complain that they were not consulted,” he told Fox News. “I never felt he was willing to get into details because either he’s not a details-orientated person, or because he did not know what he wanted to accomplish… and so they chose not to meet with us again which was their prerogative. They said, if you give us this we’d do a meeting, but we don’t pay for meetings, that’s not how this administration handles their policy.”

TRUMP’S MIDEAST PEACE PLAN COULD HAVE MAJOR LONG-TERM IMPLICATIONS FOR ALLY JORDAN

Kushner, who was visiting New York to brief members of the U.N. Security Council on the peace plan, told a small group of reporters that the council members had listened closely in what he said was a constructive meeting. He said he was hopeful the US would do better in a vote on his plan than it did when it had to veto a resolution condemning the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The vote was 14-1.

Several hours after Kushner’s meeting, the Foreign Policy website broke a story quoting diplomats who stated Tunisia had recalled its Security Council ambassador over the text of the draft resolution.

The text drafted by Tunisia and Indonesia stated the Trump peace plan was a breach of international law. According to the report, the United States had complained about the text and pressured Tunisia into taking action, which they did.

Following the Tunisia incident, a second draft was introduced but was also rejected by some members.

This weekend Israeli media quoted close associates of Abbas as calling for a diplomatic intifada against the Trump plan, but the Palestinian action that sort to kill off the U.S. peace plan has not so far materialized having encountered an unforeseen roadblock at of all places the U.N. Security Council.

Tuesday’s meeting starts at 10 a.m. President Abbas is expected to be the third speaker of the morning session following the U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres and his coordinator for the Middle East peace process.

Trump stirs pardon speculation with condemnation of DOJ’s Roger Stone treatment

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6105141211001_6105148651001-vs Trump stirs pardon speculation with condemnation of DOJ’s Roger Stone treatment Ronn Blitzer fox-news/person/roger-stone fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc d84b1b4e-9667-5feb-a3de-a0dc1e8369d8 article

President Trump‘s fiery reaction to the Justice Department’s sentencing recommendation for Roger Stone is stoking renewed speculation that he could end up pardoning his former associate.

Stone is awaiting sentencing for his conviction on seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress on charges that stemmed from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. Federal prosecutors recommended that Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentence Stone to between 87 and 108 months in prison.

PROSECUTORS WANT ROGER STONE TO SERVE MORE THAN 7 YEARS IN PRISON

“This is a horrible and very unfair situation,” Trump tweeted early Tuesday morning. “The real crimes were on the other side, as nothing happens to them. Cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!”

Stone was found guilty in November of providing false statements to the House Intelligence Committee about communications having to do with WikiLeaks, obstructing a congressional investigation of Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election, and witness tampering. Prosecutors claimed that Stone hid the truth to protect Trump’s campaign.

The president’s reaction to the DOJ’s recommendation for Stone — which followed a string of retweets related to the news — was soon met with discussions of a possible pardon. Several replies to Trump’s tweet called for a pardon, and various figures in the legal/political sphere speculated that a pardon — or at least a commuted sentence — is in Stone’s future.

Political scientist and Washington Post columnist Brian Klaas said Trump was “hinting at floating a pardon” for Stone.

“Can there be any doubt that a pardon is in the offing?” asked Politico’s Josh Gerstein after Trump’s tweet, referencing Trump’s past pardon of former Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

National security attorney Brad Moss was confident that not only will Stone become a beneficiary of Trump’s executive pen, but former national security adviser Michael Flynn could as well. Flynn awaits sentencing for providing false statements to investigators, though that sentencing has been postponed indefinitely as Flynn moves to withdraw his guilty plea.

“The paperwork to commute the sentence of Stone and any sentence for Flynn likely is already drafted,” he tweeted.

Stone’s sentencing is currently scheduled for Feb. 20.

Why nor’easters need to hit ‘the benchmark’ to bring big snow to Northeast cities

When it comes to figure out if the infamous winter storms known as nor’easters will bring heavy snow to major cities in the Northeast, it’s all about location.

A nor’easter is a strong low-pressure system that affects the Mid-Atlantic, the Northeast and New England. Well-developed nor’easters are notorious for producing heavy snow, rain, wind, coastal flooding and very rough surf.

The name comes from the continuously strong northeasterly winds that precede the nor’easter.

WHAT IS A NOR’EASTER? THE CLASSIC EAST COAST STORMS EXPLAINED

Assuming there is enough cold air in place across the Northeast, the exact track of a nor’easter becomes critical for precipitation type and snow totals.

Nor’easters are responsible for the biggest snowstorms on record from the Mid-Atlantic to New England. (Fox News)

What is known as “The Benchmark” that meteorologists refer to when trying to figure out what the storms may bring is actually specific latitude/longitude coordinates: 40 degrees North, 70 degrees West.

Major nor’easters that pass near or over “The Benchmark” can deliver the heaviest snow to the I-95 corridor.

WILL A NOR’EASTER BRING SNOW? HOW DIFFERENT STORM TRACKS IMPACT THE NORTHEAST

Storms that track significantly west of these coordinates usually bring mixed precipitation, with much warmer air/rain in at the coast, while tracks farther out to sea keep the heaviest precipitation offshore.

When nor’easters reach “The Benchmark,” the just-offshore track can bring monster, full-blown storms, especially when enough cold air is involved and deep strengthening occurs. Snow can be measured in feet, especially along the Interstate 95 corridor if the atmosphere is cold enough.

If temperatures are warmer, you’ll often hear about a rain-snow line, and snow changing to rain, then back to snow sometimes.

Nor’easters that track just off the coast can bring heavy snow to the major cities along the Interstate 95 corridor. (Fox News)

Just a few miles east or west can mean the difference between 2 feet of snow, or a few inches and mostly rain.

Prolonged northeasterly winds also bring a significant coastal flooding threat and beach erosion.

Rep. Jim Banks: Trump has given us a path to a balanced budget — it’s pro-worker, pro-family and pro-growth

Westlake Legal Group image Rep. Jim Banks: Trump has given us a path to a balanced budget -- it's pro-worker, pro-family and pro-growth Rep. Jim Banks fox-news/us/economy/jobs fox-news/us/economy fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/opinion fox-news/newsedge/politics fox news fnc/opinion fnc ff201c38-9453-5ea2-b145-7a5cedf84a36 article

In 2017, Speaker Pelosi famously cajoled House Republicans to produce a budget, warning “show me your budget, show me your values.” She was understood to mean that you can learn about someone’s deepest convictions judging the way in which they spend their money.

Ironically, she and her party never produced a budget when they regained control of the House in 2019. One could presume they failed to “show” their “values” because the values held by the radical leftwing of the Democrat Party today would terrify voters.

In contrast, President Trump is not afraid to put his cards on the table. Monday, he announced his 2021 presidential budget request (PBR), A Budget for America’s Future. After reading through it, I can endorse it as pro-worker, pro-family and pro-growth.

DAVID AVELLA: SANDERS VS. BLOOMBERG — DEMOCRATS’ CHOICE IS A SOCIALIST WIN OR A BILLIONAIRE COUP

Like the budget we produced at the Republican Study Committee, the president presents a path to balance the budget.

The president’s budget would put the federal ledger in the black in just 15 years. It includes $4.6 trillion in deficit savings over the next 10 years.

This is major progress from the “business as usual” Washington that has produced $23.2 trillion in national debt and faces annual $1 trillion deficits over the next decade. And it’s definitely not a surprise from an administration that has recommended more budget cuts than any other administration in modern history.

To achieve fiscal responsibility, President Trump is recommending deep cuts to bloated bureaucracies in D.C. and discontinuing programs that are no longer needed or should be handled by state governments.

Of those included cuts is a 26 percent cut to the Environmental Protection Agency, which is music to Hoosier farmers’ ears.

The budget also encourages reforms to eliminate the infamous year-end spending sprees. Federal agencies often empty their accounts at the end of the fiscal year to justify getting the same dollar amount in next year’s budget.

The PBR also addresses the money the federal government pays to dead people. Openthebooks.com found there are six million active Social Security numbers that belong to people aged 112 and older, which is 5,999,960 more than the 40 people who are actually aged 112 (and over) and alive today.

The president’s budget addresses this issue by introducing new strategies to reduce monetary loss, reasoning that “protecting taxpayer money and making sure it is serving its intended purpose is a fundamental responsibility.”

More from Opinion

Additionally, the president’s budget provides a blueprint for additional oversight to ensure the federal government learns the “Art of the Deal,” by negotiating better contracts with private contractors.

But it does not cut vital programs. For example, the president’s budget keeps much-needed defense spending, keeping his promise to continue rebuilding the military and it even proposes funding for 1,000 miles of the border wall.

It also proposes a big jump in funding for artificial intelligence and quantum information sciences — both vital to our global power competition with China.

Finally, it promotes a 13 percent funding boost for our veterans, ensuring our nation’s finest get the care they deserve.

On page 16 of the chapter on stopping wasteful and unnecessary spending, there is a section that summarizes the philosophy undergirding the president’s budget: “This agenda is focused on new strategies to reduce monetary loss because protecting taxpayer money and making sure it is serving its intended purpose is a fundamental responsibility.” I could not agree more.

The president has set down his marker for his stance on fiscal responsibility. This is a quantum leap in the right direction. And better yet—it’s a far cry from the radical proposals made by left-wing Democrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

As soon as “Friends” debuted, Aniston was one of the biggest actresses in television, so it stands to reason that she might cross paths with superstar Brad Pitt.

In 1998, the pair began dating after being set up by their managers, according to Rolling Stone. The pair married in 2000.

In 2005, Hollywood’s hottest couple announced that their marriage was over. Rumors had been circulating that the split happened because Pitt cheated on Aniston with his “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” co-star Angeline Jolie, whom he later married.

The two released a joint statement shortly after the split saying that the “separation is not the result of any of the speculation reported by the tabloid media.”

New Hampshire primary: Pete Buttigieg is a radical Democrat in disguise, says Tony Katz

Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg is a radical Democrat in a moderate Democrat’s clothing, radio talk show host Tony Katz said Tuesday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” live in New Hampshire with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade, Katz said that Buttigieg is trying to appear as a moderate to voters.

“He does want Medicare-for-all; he wants Medicare-for-all who want it. He doesn’t want to take all your guns like Beto O’Rourke, but now is the perfect time to come and get all the guns,” Katz explained.

“He is on that radical tip,” he stated. “The difference between him and Bernie Sanders is a question of speed — how fast they want to go to get the thing.”

NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY VOTING KICKS OFF, WITH SANDERS AND BUTTIGIEG LOCKED IN FIERCE BATTLE

New Hampshire’s presidential primary kicked off at midnight, as voters in three tiny townships in the state’s North Country and White Mountains cast the first ballots in the first primary in the White House race.

After getting out of Iowa’s Caucuses with essentially a tie with Buttigieg, expectations are high for the Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in a state where he shares home-field advantage with fellow progressive standard-bearer Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

In the days after Iowa, Buttigieg closed in on Sanders in the polls, but one of the two tracking polls suggested that the candidate saw his numbers drop over the weekend. That wasn’t reflected on the campaign trail, as Buttigieg drew more than 5,000 people to his events on Sunday.

Buttigieg has struggled to resonate with African-American and Latino voters. And with the White House race moving next to Nevada and South Carolina – which have much more diverse electorates – a strong finish in New Hampshire is paramount for Buttigieg.

Katz told the “Friends” hosts that Sanders gives Buttigieg the “perfect foil” to separate his candidacy and positions from.

“This is what’s so frustrating to Amy Klobuchar,’ he added.

“Amy Klobuchar says, ‘Wait a second. I’m the more moderate one.’ Now, she believes in ObamaCare and ObamaCare used to be the most radical thing ever. That said, she doesn’t understand why she can’t get some of that moderate love and Buttigieg is getting all of it,” he concluded.
