    Sen. Ted Cruz voted against keeping the government open Thursday night, going on a tirade earlier about President Joe Biden's vaccine mandates to explain his objection. 'No pissant politician, whether a local mayor or a govenor or the president of the United States has the right or legal authority to force you to make that decision,' Cruz told reporters on Capitol Hill.  The Texas Republican pointed to string of recent court decisions, which have stalled mandates from starting.    Cruz and his GOP colleagues were most concerned about the Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulation that says businesses with more than 100 employees must make workers get vaccinated or submit to weekly COVID-19 tests.  'The Biden White House mandates have been struck down repeatedly by the courts,' Cruz said. 'They are blatantly lawless. Joe Biden knows they’re lawless. His lawyers have told him that the vaccine mandates are contrary to law. And Democrats don’t care,' the Texan complained.    'They don't care about medical privacy, they don't care about individual autonomy. Instead, we have seen in the course of this pandemic, Democrats, being very...
    Jurors in the Josh Duggar trial were given a 'virtual tour' of the accused child porn pervert’s computer today to demonstrate how he harvested and hid an alleged stash of warped video and images. James Fottrell, Director of the FBI's High Tech Investigation Unit, told a federal courthouse in Fayetteville, Arkansas that he used visualization software to replicate the exact desktop on Duggar's seized work PC. Using a series of screengrabs he showed how Duggar, 33, had allegedly created a secret domain where he could access the dark web to hunt for files marked 'Jailbait,' 'Pedo Mom' and 'Daisy's Destruction.' ’The latter video featured a girl of three to four months being stripped naked, posed on a bed and toilet before being tortured with hot wax. The infant is crying and screaming,’ the veteran investigator told jurors.  'It's one of the most offensive videos that I’m familiar with throughout my career.' Fottrell told the court that he identified that particular video through something called a torrent file that was present on the HP computer taken from Duggar's used...
    President Biden's gut reaction to the news that a deadly suicide bomb had gone off amid the American evacuation from Afghanistan has been revealed.  During an Afghanistan briefing on Aug. 26, head of US Central Command Gen. Frank McKenzie turned ashen as he was handed a piece of paper. He told the meeting, which he'd called into by video, that a bomb had been detonated near the Hamid Karzai Airport - four services members were already dead, three near dead, dozens more injured.  There were gasps throughout the room and Biden winced before going silent for a long pause. 'The worst that can happen has happened,' the president said once he broke the silence, meeting participants told the New York Times.  The death toll eventually rose to 13 US service members and over 170 Afghans.  The fateful event has since marred the Biden administration's record and defined the frenzied withdrawal that has scored criticism from both sides. Following the attack, which terror group ISIS-K later claimed, the US carried out a retaliatory drone strike, which they initially claimed killed a terrorist...
    Kevin McCarthy said Sunday that his record-breaking eight-and-a-half hour speech on Thursday night was also supposed to be 45 minutes – but he extended it after Democrats tried to shut him down. 'When I went to the floor, I had no idea we would speak that long. It wasn't about breaking the record, it was about breaking down this bill,' McCarthy told Fox News' Sunday Morning Futures host Maria Bartiromo. He said the limit of a 20-minute debate and Democrat heckling inspired him to go for much longer than he originally intended. 'More than 2,000 pages and the Democrats were only allowing – once they put that manager's amendment in – 10 minutes on each side to debate,' the House minority leader continued. 'And the amount of heckling that they would try to do to stop me from being able to talk.' 'But what we really found,' McCarthy said, 'with one-party rule in one year – this big government socialism isn't working.' House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said he only planned to speak for about 45 minutes at most on...
    Jordan Peterson decried the back-and-forth messaging about the coronavirus vaccine, saying the government won't leave him alone after getting vaccinated. The Canadian author and academic spoke with conservative commentator Dave Rubin on Wednesday about how government COVID-19 restrictions are affecting Canadians. "You know, Canadians who aren't vaccinated now cannot leave the country ," Peterson told Rubin in a video posted Tuesday. "What the hell?" MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY SPEAKS OUT AGAINST VACCINE MANDATES FOR CHILDREN: 'I'M NOT VACCINATING MINE' Initially, Peterson believed that getting the vaccine would make the government leave him alone and allow for a normal life, he said. "Look, I got vaccinated, and people took me to task for that," he said. "And I thought, 'All right, I'll get the damn vaccine.'" “Here’s the deal, guys: I'll get the vaccine, you f***ing leave me alone. And did that work? No. So, stupid me," Peterson continued. "That's how I feel about it. So, like, well, I have to get tested for COVID when I come back into Canada. I have to get tested...
    Fox News’ Peter Doocy responded Thursday to the White House’s pushback over his Wednesday back-and-forth with President Joe Biden. Doocy confronted the president yesterday over reporting in The Wall Street Journal that the government is in talks to give $450,000 per person to immigrant families separated under the Trump administration to resolve lawsuits. The Fox News correspondent asked Biden, “Do you think that might incentivize more people to come over illegally?” “If you guys keep sending that garbage out, yeah,” the president responded. Doocy asked if he meant it was a “garbage report.” Biden said yes. However, this took the ACLU by surprise, and they said the president “may not have been fully briefed about the actions of his very own Justice Department as it carefully deliberated and considered the crimes committed against thousands of families separated from their children as an intentional governmental policy.” Doocy asked White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about this during Thursday’s briefing. “Who is right?” Jean-Pierre said, “If it saves taxpayer dollars and puts the disastrous history of the previous administration’s use...

    Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the White House will finally release information on how many of the thousands of migrants camped out under the Del Rio International Bridge in Texas have been released into the United States. At her daily press briefing on Wednesday, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy confronted Psaki on the numbers - which he said Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas didn't know.  'So who else can we ask?' Doocy asked. When the press secretary attempted to direct him back to DHS, an incredulous Doocy replied, 'He says he doesn't know.' 'I am confident that he wanted to have the most up-to-date numbers and we will venture to get you those -I promise, this afternoon,' Psaki replied.  In a follow-up question Doocy asked if the issue was not knowing or if 'a lot more people are being released into the US than are being sent out.' 'That is certainly not the issue,' Psaki said. It's not clear when those figures will actually become public.  Press Secretary Jen Psaki told a Fox News reporter that he'll get updated...
    On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said that President Joe Biden’s U.N. speech was him putting “a giant ‘Kick me’ sign on Uncle Sam’s back.” And criticized Biden for saying he didn’t want a new cold war with China when “they’ve been waging a cold war against us for decades, stealing our jobs by the millions, infiltrating our high-tech businesses and our universities with spies, building a military that one day might compete with our own.” Cotton said, “Joe Biden walked into the United Nations today and put a giant ‘Kick me’ sign on Uncle Sam’s back. He claimed that he didn’t want a new cold war with China. The leaders in Beijing are laughing at Joe Biden and America right now. Because they’ve been waging a cold war against us for decades, stealing our jobs by the millions, infiltrating our high-tech businesses and our universities with spies, building a military that one day might compete with our own. And Joe Biden not only says that we’re not in a cold war...
    "Every evaluation that I performed was very specific and I performed them in my scope of practice," said Busch. "I had to stay very specific to the diagnoses that were in my wheelhouse, there are plenty that weren't." Busch claims to have turned away numerous people, who did not qualify for a medical exemption. Busch told WWSB on Tuesday, "I have not directly heard from the school district but I am more than happy to sit down with the school district. I'm not trying to do something that's shady, irrefutable, unethical. I'll sit down, I would be happy to come to them." CNN tracked down Busch to question him about the exemption forms, which he told the outlet, "This wasn't about me. This is about parents' freedom." On Tuesday, the superintendent of the Sarasota County School District, Dr. Brennan Asplen, announced that schools would no longer accept exemption forms signed by Busch or any other chiropractor. On Sunday in nearby Venice, thousands of people showed up for a "mask-exemption event, where families could get a note from a...
    Aid worker Zemari Ahmadi, 43, was driving the 1996 Toyota Corolla that was destroyed in the August 29 drone strike The drone strike that the Pentagon claimed killed an ISIS-K suicide bomber in Kabul actually targeted an aid worker who had filled his car with water jugs, rather than explosives, according to a shocking new report. Zemari Ahmadi, 43, was driving the 1996 Toyota Corolla that was destroyed in the August 29 drone strike, killing him and nine family members, including seven children, according to a New York Times investigation. Ahmadi worked for US-based aid group Nutrition and Education International, and spent the day running routine errands for the group, loading nothing into the car other than jugs full of water to bring home to his family, the Times reported, citing witnesses and surveillance video footage.  'All of them were innocent,' Ahmadi's brother Emal told the newspaper, noting that Ahmadi had sought refugee status with the US based on his international aid work. 'You say he was ISIS, but he worked for the Americans.'  NY Times Privacy Policy ...
    (CNN)Republican Sen. Ron Johnson has repeatedly spread anti-vaccine misinformation. But just last year, the Wisconsin senator attacked Democrats on the issue, saying that undermining confidence in a vaccine for Covid-19 would cost deaths. Johnson made his comments in October 2020 on Wisconsin local radio when discussing the vice presidential debate between then-Vice President Mike Pence and then-Sen. Kamala Harris. Harris had said she wouldn't take a vaccine on the word of President Donald Trump alone, only if it was recommended by medical authorities. "If she could actually experience shame -- and I'm not sure any Democrat can -- she should have been ashamed of herself," Johnson said. "When the Vice President said, 'Senator, will you please stop undermining people's confidence in the vaccine?' I mean, that'd be a terrible thing if we have an effective vaccine and a safe one, and that's the only one we'll release. But if you are out there undermining that possibility, that will cause people's deaths."

    Donald Trump dismissed warnings about the threat of coronavirus from his then-head of Health and Human Services Alex Azar, a new book revealed. 'Mr. President, I've got to tell you something. There's this new virus out of China that could be extremely dangerous. It could be the kind of thing we have been preparing for and worried about,' Azar told Trump during a phone call in January 2020, according to excerpts of Nightmare Scenario, which hit bookshelves on Tuesday. The book, by two Washington Post reporters, details that Trump appeared uninterested in the conversation. It also claims Azar 'could barely get a word in before Trump started shouting'. Azar was able to inform Trump that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had already started screening travelers from China to the U.S. He urged, however, that more safety measures be taken to mitigate the potential spread. 'Yeah, okay,' Trump replied before abruptly hanging up the phone.

    Days after Derek Chauvin was sentenced for murdering George Floyd by kneeling on him until he died, the Supreme Court vacated a ruling in Lombardo v. City of St. Louis that had said officers acted reasonably when engaging in similar behavior. In a 6-3 decision, the court granted certiorari and told a lower court to take another look at the case brought by the parents of Nicholas Gilbert, who died in a St. Louis prison after being restrained by multiple officers who had him face down with pressure applied to his back and torso for 15 minutes. The Supreme Court said that the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals failed to fully examine the situation. SUPREME COURT LIMITS WHEN POLICE CAN ENTER HOME WITHOUT WARRANT "We express no view as to whether the officers used unconstitutionally excessive force or, if they did, whether Gilbert’s right to be free of such force in these circumstances was clearly established at the time of his death," the court said. "We instead grant the petition for certiorari, vacate the judgment of the Eighth Circuit, and...
    Kayleigh McEnany railed at President Joe Biden for his negative comments about Donald Trump abroad…even though he never actually uttered the remarks she accused Biden of making about his predecessor. McEnany, the former Trump press secretary-turned-Fox News host, used a portion of Thursday’s Outnumbered to hold a panel discussion on Biden’s remarks from his first overseas trip as president. One of her complaints was that “President Biden was harder on Republicans, calling us phony and fractured while on foreign soil, harder on Republicans than he was on our adversary, Vladimir Putin.” McEnany said nothing of Trump’s deferential relationship with Putin while in office. Instead, she pivoted to the contents of a notecard Biden held in his hand after his meeting with the G7. The notecard bore the title “DOJ Talking Points,” and it held points that “Trump abused power,” “Trump DOJ out of control, now we have to clean it up,” and “I’ve made it clear this DOJ will reflect my values and principles and priorities, not Donald Trump’s.” “These are his scripted talking points on foreign soil after he...
    Russian President Vladimir Putin says he does not remember the time President Joe Biden allegedly looked him in the eyes and said he doesn’t have a soul. Putin was responding to a question from a Wall Street Journal reporter who asked about the meeting that occurred when Biden was still vice president, as well as whether Biden had invited him to the White House. Putin addressed the second part of the question first. WATCH: “He did not invite me to the White House and no invitation of that kind was given. I think we really have to have the right conditions before we can get to that stage. As far as looking in eyes and finding souls, a concern, well, I actually don’t remember that, but this is not the first time I’ve heard that statement. But if he asks — if you ask me what kind of partner or interlocutor President Biden is, I would say he’s a very balanced and professional man, and it’s clear that he’s very experienced,” the Russian president responded. Biden has said repeatedly...
    A socialite whose $100 million divorce battle fascinated the New York press for years reopened her case on Monday, insisting that he had not complied with the terms.   Libbie Mugrabi, 41, settled her divorce with her art collecting ex-husband David, 47, in December.  It's unclear how much she walked away with, but she'd asked him for $100 million and was 'very happy' with the settlement she received, she said in February. Yet on Monday she claimed in court documents that the antidepressant she was on when she signed the divorce deal affected her judgement, and that she had not realized she was agreeing to 'only' $79,000 a month in child support.  Mugrabi said that she needs the full $98,000 a month she was receiving before the settlement was agreed, to keep their children in the lifestyle to which they are accustomed. Libbie Mugrabi is pictured with her then-husband David in April 2018. The pair then filed for divorce, setting off a $100 million battle that ended in December. She on Monday filed legal documents seeking to reopen the divorce,...
    It’s been 11 years since LeBron James made his infamous “Decision” live on ESPN, announcing plans to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers and join the Miami Heat, a move that was widely ridiculed. It’s also been 11 years since Bill Simmons, then a columnist for ESPN, was one of LeBron’s loudest critics, writing an op-ed blasting the NBA superstar. And because of those criticisms which are more than a decade old, don’t expect to see LeBron or his agent Rich Paul join Simmons on his Ringer podcast anytime soon, or ever. “I blame the people around him. I blame the lack of a father figure in his life,” Simmons wrote for ESPN more than a decade ago. “I blame us for feeding his narcissism to the point that he referred to himself in the third person five times in forty-five minutes. I blame local and national writers (including myself) for apparently not doing a good enough job explaining to athletes like LeBron what sports mean to us, and how it IS a marriage, for better and worse, and that we’re...

He said they wanted the duke to be played by a blue-eyed actor to match the novels' description. Page noted that the book series' Brazilian fans supported him "before anyone else did." Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Regé-Jean Page's performance as Simon Basset on season one of "Bridgerton" turned him into the Regency romance's breakout star. But when the British-Zimbabwean actor was initially cast, he said many fans of the "Bridgerton" book series took issue with the fact that he didn't match the character's physical description in the novels. In an interview Variety published on Wednesday, Page, 31, said readers of Julia Quinn's best-selling romance series, which served as the blueprint for the Shondaland and Netflix production, questioned the decision to cast him as Simon, noting that he doesn't have the "icy blue" eyes detailed in the author's pages. The Brazilian "Bridgerton" book fans, however, immediately supported him, for which Page still...
    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” co-host Brianna Keilar said that White House Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci “never said that COVID-19 did not come from a lab. What he said was there was no scientific evidence supporting that it did.” And that for former President Donald Trump, the lab leak theory “was less about finding the truth and more about finding a scapegoat as he made racist comments deflecting from his own poor political performance and coincided with higher rates of hate crimes against Asian Americans.” After playing a clip of Fauci conceding that it’s possible the virus originated in a lab, Keilar said, “To be clear, Dr. Fauci never said that COVID-19 did not come from a lab. What he said was there was no scientific evidence supporting that it did. And later in that very same interview, Fauci said investigators still say the spread was likely natural, meaning zoonotic, starting from an animal that transmitted it to humans, which has long been the explanation that was more broadly considered as likely, that it began in...

    Rep. Andrew Clyde seems to be worried about how this "vacation" is going. The pathology involved in conservatives around the country collectively trying to gaslight Americans into believing they didn’t see what they saw and didn’t hear with heard on Jan. 6, 2021, is pretty frightening. But here we are. During “The Capitol Insurrection: Unexplained Delays and Unanswered Questions” hearings held by the House of Representatives, Republicans tried to repaint the history of the Jan. 6 attempt by MAGA types and many Republican officials to forcefully overturn millions of Americans democratically cast votes as not a big deal. In fact, if you looked at it another way, the insurrection was like a big family gathering. One of the most egregious remembrances of that day came from Republican Rep. Andrew Clyde of Georgia. During his written statement, he said of the many trespassers and zip-tie carrying insurrections that day in the Capitol building, “You know, if you didn't know the TV footage was a video from January the 6th you would actually think it was a normal tourist visit.” It’s the kind of statement that’s so breathtaking in its denial of all evidence that it...

    Mohamed Hadid, 72, has sold his half-built Bel Air mega-mansion that is being demolished Mohamed Hadid has sold his half-built Bel Air mega-mansion that is being demolished after he said he had 'no funds' to pay to tear it down. Hadid, the father of supermodels Gigi and Bella Hadid, has sold the home for $8.5 million after he was ordered to demolish the estate over safety concerns, the New York Post reported.
