  Photo credit: Gage Skidmore/CC BY-SA 2.0,  via Flickr US President Joe Biden meets with FEMA officials for a briefing on the impacts of Hurricane Ian and the ongoing federal response efforts. Earlier, President Biden approved an emergency declaration in Florida as we brace for the IAN Hurricane. FEMA is on alert with water, meals, and generators at the ready. Ian is moving towards Florida, now a category 3. It could slow down once it hits Florida. This means Floridians are going to experience the impacts of this storm for a very long time. The FEMA administrator just got back from Miami and briefed the media from the White House Tuesday. Storm surge is a leading cause of hurricane-related fatalities. In addition to the storm surge, we're also going to see significant rainfall, with the possibility of up to 25 inches.

And the war will be a major focus of President Biden's address to the U.N. General Assembly this morning. What might Joe Biden say at his UNGA 77 address, given this breaking news? I think you can expect to hear him reiterate that if Vladimir Putin were to use nuclear or chemical weapons, the U.S. would respond with severe consequences. But here is the question: What do those severe consequences look like? Of course, President Biden has taken the possibility of sending US troops into Ukraine to fight this war very seriously, and so he is keeping that piece of it very close to the vest. But I am told this will be a forceful speech. The goal is going to be to rally support around Ukraine. This is a war that is now stretching into its seventh month. The US has committed more than $15 billion. So keeping up that support for Ukraine is

Well-wishers in line to pay their final respects to the queen's son, King Charles II, and the heir to the throne, Prince William, unexpectedly came out to greet well-wishers. Many of them waited for well over 12 hours overnight in cold temperatures. It was really cold. People were doing this to get a chance to go inside Westminster Hall, where the queen is lying in state for just two more days.  Some of the mourners inside Westminster Hall on Saturday also got a chance to watch the changing of the guard. The queen's grandchildren, including Prince William and Prince Harry, held a 15-minute vigil by the coffin. UK officials have begun warning those hoping to come bid farewell to the queen that the line will close before the funeral on Monday to allow everyone already in line to pay their final respects to the queen.  Inside Buckingham Palace,

We just got word shortly after 4 a.m. about that tentative deal; again, it is a tentative deal. The unions still have to vote on it. But here's the good news: the president and the secretary of labor say we are going to avoid that strike and we're going to avoid the economic consequences that would have come as a result. And I bring up the economic consequences because I know most of our viewers at home are probably thinking about it. Well, most of us don't commute on trains, but I want everyone to think about this. Almost everything that comes to DFW, our food, our goods, all gets here on trains. meaning a strike, you would have really felt it. So I want to break this d

  Photo credit: Gage Skidmore/CC BY-SA 2.0,  via Flickr President Biden will deliver a speech at Laborfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. US President Joe Biden will address thousands of Labor union members at the Summerfest grounds on Labor Day. The president's addresses to the labor fest crowd won't be tied to any political campaign or candidate, but organizers acknowledge the political significance of his visit coming just two months before election day.  There is some history here. Former US President Obama addressed the labor fest crowd two months before the 2014 midterm elections, but this year, President Biden's low approval rating of 40% in the latest Marquette poll has raised questions about his role in campaigning in the Wisconsin governor's and senate races.
