    Fox News host Jesse Watters implied that Biden may be considering removing Kamala Harris as Vice President after he said his network had heard 'whispers' of confirmation hearings in Congress.  'Our Capitol Hill Correspondent Chad Pergram tells us he's been hearing whispers suggesting there could be some new high-profile confirmation hearings on the horizon in the House of Representatives,' said Watters during the segment.  'Why is this a big deal? Because the house does not confirm normal nominees. But it does confirm vice-presidential nominees. Does this have something to do with Kamala Harris? It's been no secret she's been running out of favor with the Biden team,' he added.  The host touched on reports over the weekend that the Biden-Harris post-election bliss, had worn out as aides became frustrated with her awkward laugh, 'dysfunction and lack of focus,' and low approval rate of just 28 percent.  On Monday, Biden and Harris put up a united front when they stepped out of the White House together to sign the president's trillion-dollar infrastructure bill, after a CNN article on Sunday claimed that their relationship...

    Just when the public thought triceratops were the only horny dinosaurs, CNN alerted its readers that "prehistoric foreplay" brought the heat before the Ice Age.  In a piece titled "The mysterious sex lives of dinosaurs," CNN senior producer Katie Hunt tackled the burning question of "how" dinosaurs reproduced and how it has been difficult to answer since "no fossil has revealed two dinosaurs caught in the act," but "close analysis and insights" of living animals like birds are allowing paleontologists to "piece together the sex lives of dinosaurs." The report published Monday began examining the plumage of the Confuciusornis and how its "ribbonlike tail feathers" have been "interpreted as being used for sexual display." It then delved into the behavior of modern male birds called "lekking," which was described "competitively dance and perform other courtship rituals to attract the attention of females" and how dinosaurs "engaged in similar mating behavior, according to fossilized ‘scrapes’ left behind in 100 million-year-old rocks in the prehistoric Dakota Sandstone of western Colorado."

    Fox News national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin confronted Pentagon spokesman John Kirby Wednesday on if he’s seen anything “unusual” or concerning in recent reports about Gen. Mark Milley. A new book from Bob Woodward and Robert Costa reports Milley was so concerned Trump would “go rogue,” he stepped in to make sure the then-president couldn’t fire any nuclear weapons. He even made calls to his Chinese counterpart to assure the U.S. would not attack. There have been many calls for Milley’s resignation over the revelation about his calls to China, and Trump himself accused the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of treason. Griffin asked Kirby about the reports that Milley “tried to stop the president at the time from having the ability to launch nuclear weapons.” “I certainly can’t speak to the revelations that are coming out in the book,” he responded, pointing to the statement from Milley’s office. “What I can tell you is that it is not uncommon at all for the department to continue to review security protocols, particularly when it comes to our strategic...

Griffin beamed into America’s Newsroom on Thursday to describe the frantic efforts to gather details on the explosion, which comes as the U.S. is still trying to fly hordes of people out of the country. As she broke down reports about the explosion, Bill Hemmer asked Griffin whether this will impact the U.S.’ withdrawal from the country. “I think it’s very clear, once an attack like this took place it would speed up the timeline,” Griffin said. “I would guarantee you that all the gates are closed to the Kabul airport. Those who are inside the airport will be evacuated and they will begin drawing down troops.” Griffin added her assessment that by having the U.S. Military work against the August 31st deadline for their withdrawal from Afghanistan, “it puts a target, a bull’s-eye on the U.S. Military as others as they try to evacuate.” “It think its safe to assume this...
