    By Michael Warren | CNN Dr. Mehmet Oz, a cardiothoracic surgeon and television personality, is running for the US Senate in Pennsylvania as a Republican, according to an op-ed published Tuesday in the conservative Washington Examiner. “During the pandemic, I learned that when you mix politics and medicine, you get politics instead of solutions. That’s why I am running for the U.S. Senate: to help fix the problems and to help us heal,” Oz wrote. The 61-year-old Oz will join a Republican primary field that already includes Philadelphia-area businessman (and 2018 lieutenant governor nominee) Jeff Bartos and Carla Sands, who served as US ambassador to Denmark in the Trump administration. Another potential Republican candidate is David McCormick, a former official in the Treasury Department under President George W. Bush. The race in Pennsylvania to succeed retiring Republican Sen. Pat Toomey has been shaken up in recent weeks, primarily by the departure of GOP candidate Sean Parnell, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump. Oz is an Ohio native who attended medical school at the University of Pennsylvania. He rose...
    Former US president Donald Trump has spoken about Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Boris Johnson and the Capitol Hill riot in a GB News interview with Nigel Farage. The show, which will be broadcast at 7pm tomorrow, has been billed as a 'world exclusive' and will also see Mr Trump asked whether he will run for president again. A preview clip with dramatic music showed the duo sitting together, had a tagline saying 'nothing is off limits' and revealed they will also discuss climate change.  Former US president Donald Trump sat down for an interview with Nigel Farage for GB News The interview, which will be broadcast at 7pm tomorrow, has been billed as a 'world exclusive' The interview was promoted by Mr Farage, who told his 1.6million followers: 'Don't miss it!' The video also included a short quote from Mr Trump saying: 'I think you'll be happy in the future too' - although it did not provide any further context. Mr Farage and Mr Trump have appeared together on stage before, with the former Ukip leader speaking at an election...
    French far-right media pundit Eric Zemmour has confirmed that he will run for president in next year's election with a dramatic video pledging to 'save France.'  Zemmour, 63, adopted a pose that was clearly based on wartime leader Charles De Gaulle as he sat behind a desk and spoke into an old-fashioned microphone.   'It's no longer the time to reform France, but to save it,' he said, adding that his fellow French citizens 'no longer recognise our country.' Against a Beethoven soundtrack, Zemmour demanded that children stop being subjected to the 'egalitarian experiments of gender theory and Islamic-Leftism.'  And he called on France to reject 'Europe which will never be a nation,' urging his compatriots 'we must regain our sovereignty.'  Theatrics were expected from the married father-of three who has made headlines over the last few months for pointing a rifle at a reporter, sticking his middle finger up at a female heckler, and for a secret lovechild with his 28-year-old PA.  Zemmour, 63, adopted a pose that was clearly based on wartime leader Charles De Gaulle as he sat behind a...
    Donald Trump's disgraced ex-fixer says he's convinced the former president won't run for the White House again - and that he's only teasing a second stint in office to keep donor cash flowing in.    Cohen, speaking to Meet the Press on Sunday, said that Trump will not run and merely hold on for as long as possible to collect money from donors and 'keep the grift going.' The former lawyer turned Trump critic - who spent prison time for tax evasion and campaign finance violations - said that Trump is running the greatest grift in American history.     'Donald Trump has made it very clear, right, that he is grifting off of the American people, these supporters, these individuals that are just sending money to him at record levels,' Cohen told host Chuck Todd. 'It's really amazing that people don't see exactly what the guy is doing,' he added. In August, Trump was revealed to have raised more than $100 million from donors since leaving office, with that war chest likely to have swollen substantially since then.  President Trump's former lawyer Michael...
              moreby Casey Harper   White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed that President Joe Biden will run for reelection in 2024, but critics have been quick to point out economic difficulties during his presidency. Psaki addressed reporters’ questions about previous reporting that Biden would run for the White House again in 2024, saying, “That’s his intention.” Biden would be 82 years old at the start of his second term. “The only thing I’ve heard him say is he’s planning on running again,” former Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd told the Washington Post, which first reported the news. “And I’m glad he is.” A Washington Post-ABC News poll released earlier this month showed that Biden’s approval rating has decreased to about 41%. Meanwhile, 53% disapprove of his job as president, putting his approval figures at the lowest since he took office. Behind this fall in approval has been rising inflation, gas prices, and the supply chain shortage, all of which have become major economic concerns for many Americans. The Post/ABC poll reports that Biden’s approval rating on the economy has dropped to 39%, which is worse than...
    SPECULATIONS have begun as to whether former President Donald Trump will hit the campaign trail in 2024. Here's what we know about Trump's potential return to The White House. 2Donald Trump can still run for president in 2024 unless Senators pass a measure banning him from holding public officeCredit: AFP How did Donald Trump hint at a return to The White House? After the news broke that Facebook banned Trump from the platform for at least two years, he released a statement implying his return to the presidency. He said: “Next time I’m in the White House there will be no more dinners, at his request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife. It will be all business!”  On June 4, Facebook officially disclosed their decision to ban the former president from the social media platform for two years, extending his suspension following the insurrection on January 6. Facebook said: “At the end of this period, if we determine that there is still a serious risk to public safety, we will extend the restriction for a set period of...
    Former President Donald Trump has not yet announced another White House run, but more and more signs suggest he's testing the waters ahead of an official 2024 campaign announcement. Trump's post-White House super PAC, Make America Great Again, Again, recently commissioned a head-to-head poll pitting the 45th president against his successor, President Joe Biden. The poll, conducted between Nov. 11-16, showed Trump besting Biden in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, all states that were critical to Biden's 2020 victory. INFLATION DEFLATES SUPPORT FOR BIDEN'S $1.75 TRILLION SOCIAL SPENDING PACKAGE “Poll after poll clearly demonstrates that former President Donald Trump is still the 800-pound gorilla in the GOP and would be its 2024 nominee should he run," Tony Fabrizio, who conducted the poll on behalf of MAGAA, told Politico of the results. “This new data clearly shows that today the voters in these five key states would be happy to return Trump to the White House and send Biden packing." Furthermore, Trump will expand his campaign war chest, currently worth an estimated $100 million, on Dec. 2, when a...
    Donald Trump has all but formally announced his intentions to run for the presidency again in 2024, and  his team is honing in on taking back five states Biden won in 2020 that he'd won in 2016.  The former president's shadow campaign team polled Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, all of which were decided in favor of President Biden by 3 percentage points or less. The team found that in Georgia, Trump would be ahead by 3 points, 8 points in Arizona, 12 points in Michigan, 6 points in Pennsylvania and 10 points in Wisconsin, if the race were held today.  Together, the states represent 73 electoral votes. Trump lost to Biden in 2020 by 74.  Trump has still refused to concede his loss, and challenged the election results in all five of the states, going to the greatest lengths to overturn Biden's win in Arizona.  Donald Trump has all but formally announced his intentions to run for the presidency again in 2024, and his team is honing in on taking back five states Biden won in 2020...
    President Joe Biden is not giving way and will run for reelection in 2024, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed late Monday. “That’s his intention,” Psaki told reporters aboard Air Force One, underlining varied reports the 79-year-old has been telling advisers and staff he will be back. Biden, 79, was already the oldest presidential candidate to be elected as commander-in-chief when he claimed the November 2020 election. He will be 15 days short of his 82nd birthday come 5 November 2024, the next time voters in the U.S. go to the polls to choose their leader. News of Biden’s desire to once again seek the approval of voters comes amid a steady downward trend in the president’s ratings amid inflation and supply chain issues played out against a backdrop of intra-party fighting over key aspects of the president’s agenda, as Breitbart News reported. Voters are already registering their displeasure at the prospect of his return as polling shows. A majority of voters don’t want President Joe Biden to run for reelection in 2024 and believe he should instead make way...
    (CNN)The White House on Monday said that President Joe Biden intends to run for reelection in 2024, following a recent report indicating that the commander in chief and his staff are attempting to assuage concerns about his future political prospects. When White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked aboard Air Force One whether she could confirm if he was going to run again in 2024 and whether he was telling staff that, she responded, "Yes, that's his intention."The Washington Post reported over the weekend that Biden and members of his inner circle have been telling allies that he plans to run again -- an attempt to address concerns about whether he could commit to another presidential campaign given his age and ease worries Republicans returning to power. A recent Quinnipiac University national poll showed that Biden's job approval rating sits at 36% -- the lowest number for the President in the so far in his presidency and the latest low in a months-long decline. And Democrats were pummeled in the November elections, adding to concerns about Democrats' chances in...

The Washington Post reported over the weekend that Biden and his closest advisers have been reassuring allies in recent days that he plans to seek a second term.

    President Joe Biden and a loyal group of advisers are reassuring Democratic allies he will seek a second term in the White House despite concerns about his health and his declining poll numbers. Biden, 79, has said both publicly and privately he will run again in 2024 but the behind-the-scenes outreach shows how jittery Democrats are about their leader and who would replace him at the top of the ticket should he not be on the ballot.  And some Democrats are even saying it doesn't matter whether or not Biden runs because anyone in their party could beat Donald Trump should the former president make good on his threat to run again. The chatter about Biden's political future comes as his approval rating sits in the low 40s, the party is suffering from in-fighting, the Democratic candidate lost the Virginia's gubernatorial race, and inflation soars around the country - along with the prices of food and gas. His advisers are making the calls to party faithful, The Washington Post reported while Biden privately told donors at a virtual fundraiser this month...

    According to a report from the Atlantic's Peter Nicholas, a close adviser to former president Donald Trump admitted they are "rehearsing" arguments intended to convince the former president that another presidential run in 2024 could end in disaster and embarrassment. As Nicholas wrote, despite polls showing Trump to be the odds-on choice to be the Republican Party presidential nominee in 2024, there are signs that there is a building movement against him among conservatives who are being more vocal about moving on without him. Noting the election of Republican Glenn Youngkin as the new governor of Virginia who kept his distance from the twice-impeached former president as one key data point, Nicholas wrote that Trump's influence over GOP lawmakers is showing cracks. According to Nicholas, "If Donald Trump tries to run for president again, one of his former campaign advisers has a plan to dissuade him. Anticipating that Trump may not know who Adlai Stevenson was or that he lost two straight presidential elections in the 1950s, this ex-adviser figures he or someone else might need to explain the man's...
    SAN MATEO COUNTY (CBS SF) — San Mateo County Board of Supervisors President David Canepa on Friday evening announced he plans to run for retiring Rep. Jackie Speier’s congressional seat next year. Canepa will hold hold a press conference with supporters on Saturday to officially launch his campaign to replace U.S. Rep.

    CAIRO (AP) — Libya’s influential speaker of parliament announced late Wednesday that he will be running for president, making him the latest candidate to join the race for the country’s highest office after years of civil war. Aguila Saleh, 77, who has led the country’s House of Representatives since 2014, announced his candidacy in a video statement. The elections are supposed to be held Dec. 24, but face growing uncertainty after two controversial candidates declared they are running. Saleh has been a fixture on Libya’s political scene in recent years. The body he heads came to power through elections in 2014 that ended up being contested. In the aftermath, the country split further into territories with rival authorities, and the lawmaking body fled from the capital of Tripoli to the eastern city of Tobruk after a court ruled it was no longer legitimate. “We are working to overcome the past, and close the chapter of conflict, and to embark on the future,” Saleh said in the video statement. Libya has been wracked by chaos since a NATO-backed uprising toppled...
    TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie is hinting at another run for president in 2024. Tuesday on CNN, he said, “I may choose to run in 2024. Who knows what’s going to happen?” The Republican former governor ran for president in 2016 but dropped out after the New Hampshire primary.
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Senate President Jake Corman has joined the crowded race for governor of Pennsylvania. Corman thinks he has something the other candidates do not have. He’s the senior Republican senator in Harrisburg, but Corman is hardly a household name beyond the political world. He hopes to change that in the weeks ahead. READ MORE: Sen. Bob Casey Predicts Neighboring Sen. Joe Manchin Will Be On Board To Pass Build Back Better Plan“I’m a husband, married for 20 years. We have a daughter in college and two young boys in high school,” Corman told KDKA political editor Jon Delano. “A Little League coach at one time, just like everyone else, active in my community, raising my children. I’ve had a career in public service. Something I’m very proud of.” With over 22 years of seniority in the Senate, Corman, who comes from Bellefonte just outside State College, says it’s his years of government experience that differentiates him from the 10 other Republicans in the race. “What I try to do is just to get things done. I don’t care...
    The White House sidestepped a question over whether President Joe Biden would lend his vice president an automatic endorsement if she chooses to run for the presidency. “I don’t have any predictions of whether she will run, when she will run — I will leave that to her,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said of Vice President Kamala Harris. Calling Harris “a key partner” and “bold leader,” Psaki said Biden chose her because “he felt she was exactly the person he wanted to have by his side to govern the country.” HARRIS’S PARIS TRIP DOESN’T SOLVE HER GROWING POLITICAL PROBLEMS AT HOME Since taking office, Harris has faced persistent criticism, including her handling of Northern Triangle migration, lack of progress on Democrats’ voting agenda, and failure to push back on a student who accused Israel of “ethnic genocide.” Recent reports have raised frustrations among the vice president’s allies that she is getting short shrift from the White House — and among White House aides that see Harris’s team failing to seize opportunities. “I can tell you that there’s...
    TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — Libya’s interim prime minister said Monday that he’ll run for president if that’s what the people want, a day after the son of the country’s late dictator Moammar Gadhafi emerged after years of hiding and announced his candidacy for the country’s top office. The developments come as the date for long-planned elections, scheduled to take place on Dec. 24, draws nearer. Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, who is meant to lead the country until a winner is declared following national and presidential elections on Dec. 24, asked a cheering crowd at a youth rally: “It’s up to you. Do you want me to run in the elections, or do you not? Dbeibah is currently barred from running under Libya’s current elections laws. On Sunday, Seif al-Islam Gadhafi, the son and one-time heir apparent of Gadhafi, submitted papers in the southern town of Sabha declaring his candidacy. Seif al-Islam, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court on charges of crimes against humanity, has spent years largely in hiding. His father was removed...
    MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday filed his candidacy for a senate seat in next year’s elections, walking back on his vow that he would retire from politics when his term ends and prompting rights groups to say the leader is working to evade accountability for his deadly anti-drug campaign while in office. A lawyer of the 76-year-old Duterte filed his senatorial candidacy at the Commission on Elections before the deadline for last-minute contenders in May’s nationwide elections. Duterte announced early last month that he was retiring from politics after dropping plans to run for vice president due to what he said was widespread public sentiment against the move. His initial plan to seek the vice presidency outraged activists, who have described him as a human rights calamity in an Asian bastion of democracy. “Duterte’s run for the Senate is yet another attempt of the tyrant to evade accountability from the International Criminal Court and other accountability mechanisms,” said Cristina Palabay of Karapatan, a left-wing alliance of human rights groups. “It is as sinister, opportunist and...

    CAIRO (AP) — The son and one-time heir apparent of late Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi announced Sunday his candidacy for the country’s presidential election next month, Libya’s election agency said. Seif al-Islam submitted his candidacy papers in the southern town of Sabah, the agency said in a statement. Gadhafi’s son was captured by fighters late in 2011, the year when a popular uprising toppled his father after more than 40 years in power. Moammar Gadhafi was later killed amid the ensuing fighting that would turn into a civil war. In a video released by the elections office where he registered, Seif al-Islam addressed the camera said that God will decide the right path for the country’s future.

    MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s daughter on Saturday registered her candidacy for vice president in next year’s elections and was chosen as the running mate of Ferdinand Marcos Jr., the son of the late Filipino dictator, in an alliance that has alarmed human rights activists. Sara Duterte backed out this week from her reelection bid as mayor of southern Davao city then took the place of a largely unknown vice-presidential candidate of her political party, Lakas CMD, in a maneuver that allowed her to seek the second-highest post even after a deadline lapsed for candidates in the May 9 elections. Marcos Jr. filed his papers at the Commission on Elections last month. His party, Partido Federal ng Pilipinas, named Sara Duterte on Saturday as his running mate. Philippine presidents and vice presidents are elected separately and could forge an alliance even if they run under different political parties. If they’re elected from rival camps, they often end up in a hostile relationship. Ferdinand Marcos, who was toppled in a 1986 “people power” pro-democracy uprising and...
    Sara Duterte Carpio, the eldest daughter of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, filed her candidacy for vice president on Saturday, according to CNN affiliate CNN Philippines. Duterte Carpio, 43, who replaced her father as mayor of Davao City and belongs to a different political party, had previously given mixed messages about running, despite opinion polls this year ranking her as the number one presidential prospect.

    Popular radio host Howard Stern has vowed to run for president if Donald Trump tries again in 2024 - and insists he'll beat his former friend. During his radio show Tuesday morning, Stern claimed he has accepted that he may have to serve his 'civic duty' and run against Trump saying he knows he'll 'beat his a**.' Stern claims he is as prominent in the American public's conscience as Trump, meaning any presidential campaign would quickly gain traction.  The claims came as Stern noted the attention that his statements about Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers vaccine scandal the day before drew in.  Stern slammed Rodgers, who tested positive for Covid last week, for lying about being vaccinated calling him a 'scumbag' and suggesting that he be fired from the NFL.  On Tuesday's show, the shock jock suggested that if his comments on Rodgers were 'big news' then he is sufficiently popular among the public to make a presidential bid.  Howard Stern (left) and his co-host Robin Quivers discussed Stern's potential 2024 presidential campaign against Donald Trump Stern and Trump were...
    Speaking for himself, DeSantis said in September that speculation about 2024 is "nonsense" and that he's focused on re-election next year. Of course, politicians typically deny that they want to run for president when they're thinking about running for president. But whatever presidential ambitions DeSantis may or may not have are largely in the shadow of former President Donald Trump's apparent ambitions to retake the White House from Joe Biden. Though he's made no official announcement, Trump has repeatedly told his supporters they're going to be "very happy" with his ultimate decision on 2024. The "will he, won't he" speculation over Trump has frozen other prospective GOP presidential candidates, who would face the daunting task of mounting a primary challenge against the former president, who is still overwhelmingly popular with Republicans, if he runs. A Trump comeback campaign is likely to dominate resources that are necessary to run for president — namely big-money donors, grassroots volunteers, and endorsements. Some of Trump's allies, like Stone, are already playing offense for Trump by attempting to...
    Outgoing Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, one of Donald Trump's most aggressive Republican critics, is reportedly toying with the idea of a run for higher office after he retires from the House in early 2022, he indicated on Thursday.  He's one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump over the Capitol riot.  He told CNN today that he 'definitely' wouldn't rule out a 2024 presidential bid after last week announcing he won't seek re-election. The 43-year-old Air Force veteran said he's at least mulling a run for Senate or governor of his state, which is currently run by Democrat JB Pritzker.  Kinzinger anticipates he'll 'probably' have a decision made not soon after he leaves office in January or February.  'I never rule anything out,' he said today. 'The key is, how do we restore the honor of the party in the country?' But winning the White House is a difficult path for the Republican who made his name criticizing a president of his own party and joining a Democrat-led panel investigating Trump's actions concerning the January 6 Capitol riot. According...
    (CNN)Politicians are, at root, opportunists. They are forever analyzing the political landscape in search of a favorable environment in which to run -- or to run for higher office.It's that trait that makes what happened on Tuesday so incredibly important to Republican strategists trying to win back the House and Senate majorities next fall.And what happened on Tuesday was this: In key states and races -- from Virginia to New Jersey to Long Island -- voters leaned toward Republicans, rejecting -- or at least admonishing -- Democrats up to and including President Joe Biden.The results matter in practical terms; Glenn Youngkin is now the governor-elect of Virginia for example. But there's also a less acknowledged but none-the-less critical impact of Tuesday's result: It will convince would-be GOP candidates who may have been wavering on whether to run to get into races all over the country."If you're a Democrat and President Biden won your seat by 16 points, you're in a competitive race next year," House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Wednesday. "You are no longer safe. ... It'll be more...

    New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman says former secretary of state Mike Pompeo is already talking about running for president, no matter what his old boss — former President Donald Trump — decides to do in 2024. Haberman joined New Day on Monday to talk about Trump’s appearance at the World Series in Atlanta over the weekend. At one point, John Berman asked Haberman her thoughts about Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) saying he would support Trump if he were to run for president again. Haberman said she heard Scott’s name being passed around for 2024 among “Republicans who liked Trump’s policies [but] did not like Trump’s behavior.” She referred to private conversations among Republicans that she knows about, and said: “Mike Pompeo has told a number of people he told Trump directly he will run even if Trump runs.” “Did [Trump] get annoyed?” Haberman asked hypothetically. “We’re never going to know, it’s a conversation between the two of them, but [Pompeo] is one of the people saying that.” Haberman added that former President Mike Pence is also a possible candidate...
    Saying that he can’t run for reelection to Congress while at the same time waging a broader war for the future of the Republican Party, Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois on Friday announced that he wouldn’t run for reelection next year. The six-term conservative congressman and combat pilot veteran made headlines in January as the second most high-profile of the 10 House Republicans to vote to impeach then-President Donald Trump. He now becomes the second of that group to not seek another two-year term in the House in the 2022 midterm elections, following Rep. Anthony Gonzales of Ohio. As he fights to support the GOP from its current domination by the former president and works to back other anti-Trump Republicans, Kinzinger stressed in video announcing his decision that it has "become increasingly obvious to me that in order to break the narrative, I cannot focus on both a reelection to Congress and a broader fight nationwide."

    Former President Donald Trump released a statement on lambasting Democrats' proposed billionaire's tax and said it would leave the country 'high and dry' on Wednesday.  The Republican, estimated to be a billionaire himself, suggested he'd leave the United States to avoid paying the penalty but then said he'd 'stick it out.' Democrats put details of their new tax proposal forward early on Wednesday as a way to pay for President Joe Biden's Build Back Better agenda. It was quickly derailed by bipartisan concerns and questions over the plan's constitutionality. 'What country will be the primary beneficiary from a “Billionaires Tax,” or Wealth Tax? Where will wealthy people and companies move to, leaving the United States high and dry?' Trump said in an emailed statement. 'Most don’t need to be in the U.S. anyway. I know all of those very smartly run countries, and they are all thrilled by what the Radical Left maniacs are doing in Congress. 'I just wonder, will I be allowed to run for president again if I move to another country? No, I guess I’ll just...
    In this article DWACVIDEO2:0602:06Anthony Scaramucci weighs in on Trump-linked SPACSquawk BoxHedge fund founder Anthony Scaramucci, who briefly served in the Trump administration, told CNBC on Friday he wants the SPAC linked to former President Donald Trump to succeed because it may stop him for running in the 2024 election. Scaramucci's comments on "Squawk Box" came as shares of special purpose acquisition company Digital World Acquisition Corp., which plans to merge with the newly created Trump Media & Technology Group, soared again in Friday's premarket trading. Shortly after Wall Street's open, DWAC again surged higher, one day after shares jumped more than 350% to close at $35.54 apiece on the late Wednesday tie-up announcement. "I want that thing to go up like another 10 times. The more it goes up, the less likelihood Donald Trump is running for president in 2024, so I'm rooting for that SPAC," said Scaramucci, who founded the hedge fund SkyBridge Capital and served as White House communications for a mere 10 days in July 2017. Scaramucci said Trump is dangerous to American democracy. "He was part of the...
    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said that the administration saw problems in the supply chain coming for a while and work on expanding the hours that ports stay open “began in July,” but making large ports open 24/7 “is not something you can do overnight.” Host Bret Baier asked, [relevant remarks begin around 1:40] “This announcement came this week, Jen Psaki from the White House Briefing Room said it had been worked on for months, but you could see this coming down the road for a while, couldn’t you, Mr. Secretary?” Buttigieg responded, “Well, yeah. I mean, let’s work backward from this week’s announcement. LA announced that it was going 24/7, but a few weeks earlier, Long Beach had announced their pilot to do that. Now, as you can imagine, a port that massive flipping to 24/7 is not something you can do overnight. But that work began in July, when I convened pretty much the entire ecosystem of supply chain actors who work around those west coast seaports. Those two...

Nevertheless, the 60-year-old actor and director waded into politics during an interview with the BBC’s Andrew Marr. Clooney, a longtime supporter of U.S. President Joe Biden, described America as a country that is still recovering from the damage caused by Donald Trump. When asked whether he had any intentions of running for office, Clooney was quick to dismiss the idea. “No, because I would actually like to have a nice life,” said Clooney, who appeared on the show to promote his new movie, The Tender Bar.  Clooney said he planned to take on fewer projects while he is healthy and can still “play basketball and do the things I love.” “I turned 60 this year and I had a conversation with my wife and...
    Senate Republicans have shared they hope former President Donald Trump does not announce another run for the White House – especially before the 2022 midterms, a Sunday report reveals. Several GOP senators told The Hill that they don't want Trump at the helm of their party. 'I think we're better off when he's not part of any story,' one Republican senator, who said his view is widely shared in the GOP conference, said. 'He's a clinical narcissist,' the senator continued. 'He threw away the election in the debate with Biden and he threw away the Senate out of spite.' The lawmaker was referring to Trump's first debate against then-candidate Joe Biden and the former president's influence on Republican voter turnout in the Georgia special election just weeks before he vacated office. Several Senate Republicans don't want Donald Trump to run for for president again in 2024. Here the former president pumps his fist after a rally speech in Des Moines, Iowa on Saturday Many feel Trump's claims of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election led to GOP distrust of...
    Former President Trump on Saturday gave his endorsement to Sen. Chuck Grassley, the 88-year-old Iowa Republican bidding next year to win an eighth term in the Senate. The backing of the party's most visible figure will provide a lift to G.O.P. leaders ahead of next year's midterms but it might not have happened after Grassley criticized Trump's role in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. 'We have with us tonight a great American patriot. A man who truly loves Iowa,' said Trump before thousands of fans at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. 'He's young, very young guy, he's strong. And he's very handsome. 'He fights like no other. When I've needed him for help, he was always there.'   Grassley joined Trump on stage and thanked him for his endorsement. 'If I didn't accept the endorsement of a person that's got 91% of the Republican voters in Iowa I wouldn't be too smart, he said.  'I'm smart enough to accept that endorsement.'  'We have with us tonight a great American patriot. A man who truly loves Iowa,' said former President...
    Former President Trump blasted members of his own party on Saturday, demanding that Congressional Republicans show some 'spine' as he unleashed his anger after they allowed President Biden more time to raise the debt ceiling. In front of thousands of adoring fans at the Iowa State Fairgrounds, he delivered a greatest hits show.  He attacked Biden's spending plans as a 'socialist calamity' that would unleash stagflation, boasted that he never conceded the 2020 election but directed his biggest blast of anger at Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell for working with Democrats to lift the debt ceiling. 'Congressional Republicans must stay strong. This isn't the time for Republicans to fold, to walk away, to quit, to be afraid,' he said. 'Whatever happens, happens. Don't worry about being impeached, don't worry about anything... 'But they just don't seem to have the spine some of them.' Last week 11 Republican senators voted with Democrats to suspend the filibuster, effectively allowing them more time to stave off a looming debt default. 'They can now have two more months to work out how to screw...
    (CNN)Liz Cheney is going to New Hampshire.In early November she will travel to the Granite State to speak at an event honoring the First Amendment at the St. Anselm College's Institute of Politics.This is not a random trip. Politicians with national profiles -- or those who want national profiles -- go to New Hampshire (and Iowa) for one reason and one reason only: To stoke speculation that they may well run for president at some point in the future.And that is exactly what Cheney is doing here. Consider that as recently as late April Cheney left the door wide open to a presidential bid in 2024. "I'm not ruling anything in or out — ever is a long time," she told the New York Post at the time. Shortly after being removed from her 3rd ranking post in House leadership for her criticism of Donald Trump, Cheney said that she would do "whatever it takes" to ensure that the former president was not the Republican standard-bearer in 2024.Read MoreEyebrows raised!

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis swore on Wednesday night that he isn’t considering a 2024 presidential run at the moment, claiming he’s too busy trying to “make sure people are not supporting critical race theory.” With early polls showing the Florida governor as one of the favorites—outside former President Donald Trump—to be the next Republican presidential nominee, DeSantis has repeatedly denied rumors that he is going to run. “All the speculation about me is purely manufactured,” he said earlier this month. “I hear all this stuff and honestly, it’s nonsense.” At the end of another extremely friendly interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity in which he boasted about his state’s COVID-19 response—despite having one of the highest death rates in the country—DeSantis was asked if he is harboring any presidential ambitions. “I notice the media, no matter how many times you’ve answered the question about are you considering the run for the presidency in 2024 and you give the same answer, that they still keep asking you,” Hannity said before asking that very same question: “What’s your answer to those...
    Joe Rogan , host of The Joe Rogan Experience and a UFC commentator, suggested that former President Donald Trump will not only run for president in 2024 but that he will win. Speaking with Amanda Knox, the woman who was acquitted in Italy's Supreme Court after being accused of murder as an exchange student, on his podcast, Rogan said Trump would "100% try" after being asked if he thinks the 45th president will run in 2024. "He's probably going to win," Rogan said following Knox's comparison between former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and Trump. FIVE REASONS BIDEN’S APPROVAL RATINGS HAVE TAKEN A POUNDING "How is Joe Biden going to win? How is it possible he's going to beat anybody?" Rogan asked. "After you've seen him speak, after you've seen the decay and the decline, how is that possible? They've done a terrible job. The Democrats f***ed up royally by making that guy the president." Biden is "not very inspiring," Knox said, but she suggested that Democrats would likely let someone else run, such...

A pro-Pacquiao faction of the Philippines’ ruling political party, PDP-Laban, officially endorsed the boxer-turned-senator as president for the 2022 general election on September 19 during the party’s 11th National Assembly. “Yes, I accept,” Pacquiao said in response to the nomination, confirming his candidacy. “I am a fighter, and I will always be a fighter inside and outside the ring,” Pacquiao, 42, said in further remarks during a live-streamed speech at the assembly. “I am accepting your nomination as candidate for president of the Republic of the Philippines.” “In the name of our fellow countrymen long asking for the right change in governance and true service to the Filipino people, I wholeheartedly, bravely, and humbly hope for your support,” he added.
