For some the charade had ended two weeks earlier, with the chaotic riot at the Capitol, at which Q followers were well represented, that failed to stop the counting of electoral votes certifying Biden's victory. Or at various other milestones along the tortuous road that led from the Nov. 3 election. Q had gone mostly silent since then, and followers had to fall back on reassuring each other that Trump was just biding his time before unleashing the “Storm” on an ever-growing list of enemies, eventually including members of his own administration.
Thai officials on Wednesday filed criminal charges against a popular former politician, accusing him of defaming the monarchy by broadcasting criticism of government efforts to secure supplies of coronavirus vaccines. The action against Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit came just a day after Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha told reporters that that his government will prosecute anyone who shares false information about coronavirus vaccines. Thanathorn, former leader of the dissolved Future Forward Party, accused the government of acting too slowly in procuring the vaccines.
With Joe Biden sworn in as president, the long wait for Donald Trump's health care plan is now officially over. After taking office, the realities of overhauling a system that makes up one-fifth of the U.S. economy settled in as Republicans attempted to hammer out a replacement for the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. “Now, I have to tell you, it's an unbelievably complex subject,” Trump said in February 2017.
As preparations continue for Joe Biden's inauguration ceremony on Wednesday, concern reigns in Washington, DC, over rumours that QAnon believers plan to disguise themselves as National Guardsmen to infiltrate the event in the hope of promoting further unrest like that seen in the Capitol riot of 6 January. Those concerns led to the screening of almost 25,000 National Guard on deployment in the country's capital, with two members on Tuesday being removed after they were found to have links to far-right militia groups. An additional 10 members were removed for other reasons, including previous criminal charges and past extremist rhetoric.
Eugene Goodman, the Capitol Police officer who led rioters away from the Senate chamber on Jan. 6, escorted Vice President-elect Kamala Harris at the inauguration Wednesday. Goodman is the acting deputy Senate sergeant-at-arms, which is why he was escorting Harris.

Richard Nixon's best speech came at his worst moment. Having resigned the presidency to avoid impeachment in the aftermath of Watergate, he delivered a farewell address to his White House staff that served as a reflection on duty and humility. Nixon, although prone to bouts of self-pity, understood and was able to acknowledge that he had destroyed himself, or at least his career and his place in history.
People of Thulasendrapuram, the village of the maternal grandfather of Kamala Harris in India's southern state of Tamil Nadu, are gearing up for celebrations as she is all set to assume the office of the US vice-president on Wednesday. The village is just about 350 kilometres from state capital Chennai, an idyllic rural haven surrounded by rice paddy fields. Ahead of her oath-taking ceremony, special prayers are expected to be organised at the local temple for her success and on Tuesday, an organisation that promotes vegetarianism sent food packets for the village children as gifts to celebrate the success of Ms Harris, who is the first woman, the first woman of colour and the first person of South Asian descent to hold the vice presidency.
Chris Stirewalt, the Fox News digital politics editor, is leaving the network as part of a company restructuring that eliminated more than a dozen jobs. Fox News declined to comment, citing employee confidentiality. While Fox News executives cited the job reductions as part of an ongoing streamlining of its operations, Stirewalt was likely targeted due to his role in the network's decision to call Arizona for President-elect Joe Biden on election night.
President Trump offered his final goodbye before leaving office, vowing that "we will be back in some form" before concluding his term with the "YMCA" and wishing everyone a "good life." Trump spoke at a farewell ceremony at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on Wednesday before leaving for Florida instead of sticking around to attend President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration. He described serving as president as "my greatest honor and privilege," thanking supporters while offering one assessment both supporters and critics will likely agree with: "We were not a regular administration."

Ms Biden said that her mother had not heard at all from Ms Trump in what is one of the strangest handovers of power in US history.

In court documents, federal prosecutors claimed that Biggs, 37, began urging fellow members in December to join the Jan. 6 demonstration in Washington.

It was the swamp,” said Sanjay Bhandari, a former Justice Department prosecutor who in 2005 secured a guilty plea from Randy “Duke” Cunningham, the former California congressman who was pardoned Wednesday despite having accepted at least $2.4 million in home payments, yacht club fees and other bribes from defense contractors. The White House cited Cunningham's post-prison volunteer work, military career and the support he received from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a Trump ally.

Some Republican lawmakers argue it's not constitutional to hold an impeachment trial for a former president, but that view is far from unanimous. Democrats for their part appear ready to move forward with a trial. On Tuesday, Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, said she doesn't think a post-presidency impeachment trial is constitutional.
Against all odds, interim captain Ajinkya Rahane managed to lead an injury-affected India to victory in the fourth cricket test and retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. India was forced to make four changes for the series finale after salvaging a draw in Sydney, and a draw in Brisbane would have been good enough to retain the trophy. Turns out Rahane had a plan for victory all along.

Lawmakers who contested President Donald Trump's electoral defeat were seen arriving at the US Capitol to attend his successor's inaugural ceremonies — two weeks after a deadly mob stormed the building in an attempt to overturn the election. Republicans like Senators Josh Hawley of Missouri and Ted Cruz of Texas, as well as Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, who helped lead the charge in disputing the election results, were all in attendance at the Inauguration Day events on Wednesday afternoon in Washington D.C. Those lawmakers spurred backlash for refusing to accept the legitimate outcome of the election even after Mr Trump's Department of Homeland Security described the vote as the “most secure” in...

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's most senior royal aide fact-checked the book Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family to “make sure” authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand “got nothing wrong,” a senior editor at the Mail on Sunday claimed Wednesday in testimony released by the High Court in London. Harry and Meghan have consistently denied they co-operated with Scobie and Durand either directly or indirectly, leaving many observers to wonder why the couple did not complain about the book's multiple apparent invasions of their privacy.
