Why Biden must stop Erdogan's abuse of counterterrorism rhetoric

After 13 Turkish hostages were found dead in Northern Iraq on Feb. 14, Turkey arrested hundreds of people, including prominent members of the pro-Kurdish opposition Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP). The government even opened investigations into HDP members of parliament and human rights activists Hüda Kaya and Ömer Faruk Gergerlioğlu, who had actively fought alongside the victims' families to bring the hostages home safely.

House Republicans callously turn their backs on Americans in need

There might be a "civil war" brewing in the GOP over the role Donald Trump should play in the party, but when it comes to helping Americans financially struggling to survive, the GOP is united in saying, "No." That was the clear message sent early Saturday morning when not a single House Republican voted for President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion pandemic aid package. The bill was approved by the House's Democratic majority and, if enacted by the Senate, would provide most Americans with up to $1,400 in direct stimulus payments along with other help like funding for vaccine distribution and the re-opening of schools.

Opinion: Trump has CPAC, but Biden has kryptonite

President Joe Biden should just ignore Donald Trump upon his return to Conservative Political Action Conference this weekend, where the former president is set to throw his Republican acolytes political red meat. If his downplaying of the insurrection of January 6, and deflecting responsibility onto his critics is not enough, they can also hear him play his greatest hits, maybe with a few new tunes thrown in along the way. Given that most Republicans, including Sen. Mitch McConnell, have made clear that they are fine having him as the face of their party, Trump will undoubtedly be energized. The adulation he can expect at CPAC will also provide him some relief from stories about the intensifying investigations that are taking place into his tax records.

What Tiger Woods means to Black America

We almost lost Tiger Woods in a gruesome car accident Tuesday along a Southern California highway during these final days of the month when America celebrates Black history. With apologies to late poet T. S. Eliot, such a horror would have made February the cruelest month, instead of April.

Opinion: After getting a Covid-19 vaccine, I thought about my son

"What a relief," I say to my wife Linda as I feel my neck starting to relax, signaling an easing of tension. It's late January and we are walking from a California Covid-19 vaccination site, where we've just gotten our first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. We qualified because of our age, and because we are primary caregivers to our son, Sean, who is now 34. He has autism, pervasive developmental disabilities, along with respiratory issues.

'These numbers are people': How Covid-19 death data honors lives lost

On April 16, Angelina Proia was one of thousands of people tuned in to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's daily Covid-19 briefing. That day early in the pandemic, the news was encouraging; graphs flashed across the screen showing hospitalizations were down, along with ICU admissions, there were fewer deaths than the days before, and the message was "we can control the beast."

Opinion: Asian Americans like me are fighting hate with tradition

To me, the Lunar New Year before 2020 signified the abundance and joy that came with a sense of community. Growing up in Texas, we would go to a family friend's house, alongside other immigrant families, where everyone brought their household specialties.

In recent weeks, migrants waiting in various northern Mexican cities have been told to travel to other locations along the border under the false pretense that they'll be let into the US through a port of entry there, immigration attorneys tell CNN.

Watch Biden's promise about stimulus checks

President Joe Biden vowed that he would follow through on his campaign promise to provide Americans with $2,000 for Covid-19 relief. Biden said his $1.9 trillion relief bill will include $1,400 checks to go along with the $600 checks that were distributed in the last relief bill.

Opinion: The GOP is in danger of losing the country to the left

On Wednesday night, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy announced that the GOP would not remove freshmen Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia from her committee assignments, despite the views that she has espoused, which don't even begin to approach rational thought or, for that matter, fit anywhere along the wide spectrum of acceptable political discourse. (The Democratic-led House is however expected to vote Thursday on removing Greene from her assignments.) McCarthy claims Greene renounced her previous abhorrent views and conspiracy theories while apologizing behind closed doors to her colleagues.
