  • Lansing, MI is among US state capitals tightening security ahead of Biden inauguration

    While US begins a new political chapter tomorrow with the inauguration of Joe Biden, the country has tightened its security presence even in state capitals, ahead of the scaled-down ceremony. That for fears of further violence or protests by angry Trump supporters. Lansing, MI is one of the cities on high alert, but with a population of just over 150,000 it is not the obvious choice for a capital, but it has been at the centre of threats, as FRANCE 24’s Alissa Caverley reports from Lansing.

  • Biden wins presidency after victory called in key battleground Pennsylvania

  • Trump Wants 'All Voting To Stop.' The Constitution Says Otherwise

    Article II of the US Constitution specifically gives the states the right to administer their own presidential elections. Specifically, it says 'Each state shall appoint, in such manner as the Legislature thereof may direct' its presidential electors. President Donald Trump said Wednesday morning that 'we'll be going to the US Supreme Court,' and 'we want all voting to stop.' But according to CNN commentator Elie Honig, Trump's statements oversimplify and misconceive how elections work and how the courts function. The United States of America has 51 separate and different systems for elections: one for each of its 50 states, and one for the District of Columbia. Furthermore, the federally mandated 'safe harbor' period gives states time to complete vote-counting and certification processes. In 2020, the period goes until December 8th. Congress must accept any state results certified by that date.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
