Both sides of the aisle are sharpening their carving knives for Biden’s COVID relief plan, but would that be a smart idea? Rep. Ro Khanna warns against restricting eligibility for stimulus checks, while the Washington Post argues cutting off checks to families earning over $75,000 could be wise. Democrats are stunned by briefing on Capitol’s security before insurrection: “it was only by pure dumb luck” more were not killed as Capitol Police Chief apologizes and former Army secretary says DC National Guard had no plan beyond local traffic control on January 6th. A Trump appointed, federal judge in Texas temporarily blocks Biden’s plan to halt deportations. Meanwhile, the Biden Justice Department officially rescinds Trump’s “zero tolerance” migrant family separation policy. An explanation into GameStop’s Reddit and options-fueled stock rally, and why some are buying during the meme-fueled run.

Despite Neil Cavuto’s best efforts, Marco Rubio still can’t find his spine. The leader of the Proud Boys was a “prolific” informer for law enforcement. And lastly, the latest news in COVID driven inequality – as the top 1,000 billionaires have already recovered from the pandemic financially.
