Great Again:

latest news at page 1:
              moreby Brandon J. Weichert   Under former President Donald J. Trump, for the first time in decades, the United States became a net exporter of natural gas and oil. That helped to keep global energy prices relatively low. It also gave the United States leverage over the international system in ways it had not enjoyed since before the 1970s. Alas, the propagation of the novel coronavirus from Wuhan, China, along with the ceaseless lies of the Western “mainstream” media made such a prosperous and secure future under Trump an impossibility. In the eight months since assuming office under a cloud of controversy, Joe Biden has done more to harm America’s inherent strategic advantages in the global energy market than any U.S. rival could have imagined. Under Biden, the United States has gone from being a net exporter of global energy to begging the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to produce more oil for the world to consume. Why? Because the Biden Administration killed the much-needed KeystoneXL Pipeline that would have linked Canadian energy sources with American refiners. Once inaugurated, the Biden Administration’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) enacted a bevy of onerous regulations that...
    Getty Former President Donald Trump speaks to supporters during a rally at the Iowa State Fairgrounds on October 9, 2021. Former President Donald Trump put out a Thanksgiving message through his spokesperson on Twitter, which some of his followers believe hints at a 2024 Presidential run. Trump, who was voted out of office and replaced by President Joe Biden during a tumultuous time involving an attempted siege of the U.S. Capitol, posted the letter through spokeswomen Liz Harrington, because he remains banned on Twitter. It said: A very interesting time in our Country, but do not worry, we will be great again—and we will all do it together. America will never fail, and we will never allow it to go in the wrong direction. Too many generations of greatness are counting on us. Enjoy your Thanksgiving knowing that a wonderful future lies ahead!
    The 45th President Donald Trump issued a Thanksgiving statement to Americans Thursday morning telling them not to worry about America’s future. “A very interesting time in our Country, but do not worry, we will be great again—and we will all do it together,” he said in a statement. “America will never fail, and we will never allow it to go in the wrong direction. Too many generations of greatness are counting on us. Enjoy your Thanksgiving knowing that a wonderful future lies ahead!” he said. Trump’s tweet about the future of America comes amid speculation he may run again in 2024. According to recent polls, he would be the frontrunner. 2024 National Republican Primary Poll: Trump 55%DeSantis 15%Pence 7%Haley 3%Cruz 2%Romney 2%Cheney 2%Owens 1%Rubio 1%T.

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — In due time, Klay Thompson is counting on more 37-point quarters and other scoring outbursts from himself, like the time he made 14 3-pointers in a game. Not that the Golden State Warriors star is “a numbers guy” the way he used to be, before a pair of devastating injuries. “I plan on doing that again, but who knows when? It’s tough to say,” Thompson said. He has resumed five-on-five, full-court scrimmaging in a key step as he makes his comeback from surgery last November for a torn right Achilles tendon following a season sidelined after having the ACL in his left knee repaired. “It’s hard to put into words how grateful I am to be playing basketball again,” Thompson said after practicing at full speed Tuesday. “I feel like myself. I feel great. I’m knocking shots down, I’m playing great D … I’m playing defense. The hardest part is just simulating a game and that conditioning that goes with being a great NBA player. It’s hard, and it’s definitely a thing that takes time.”...

    Former ESPN star Danny Kanell believes there’s two likely explanations for why ESPN fired him. The former Florida State quarterback spent several years with the network before being cut loose in 2017. It sounds like the college football pundit has a pretty good idea why he was let go, and it comes down to trolling the SEC and a hat. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Kanell said the following on the “Ryen Russillo Podcast,” according to Outkick: Possibly because the person who I upset the most was asking me to be suspended for a tweet because I was trolling the SEC. It did tick off somebody and even though I apologized, I don’t know if that person ever got over it. That person since that time rose up the ranks where they were really powerful and had some influence whether or not I was there. He also added that having a red “Make Radio Great Again” hat probably didn’t help his cause and could have contributed to “the final nail in the coffin”...

    Mediaite Founding Editor Colby Hall mocked media coverage of the Virginia gubernatorial by invoking the natural pairing of former President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan and a seminal album by legendary rap group Public Enemy. On Tuesday night’s edition of News Nation’s On Balance with Leland Vittert, host Leland Vittert convened a panel with Hall and Axios’ Lachlan Markay to discuss the race between Democratic candidate and former Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin. After covering the political angles of the race, Vittert introduced the media angle by playing clips of a Fox & Friends segment featuring a GOP activist planted by producers — whose son was later used as a prop to claim that he felt “attacked” by “woke videos” — and MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle challenging DNC Chair Jaime Harrison over their strategy of running every race against Trump, whether he’s involved in those races or not. Asked for his analysis, Hall described the dueling narratives in the race as “a proxy battle between ‘Fear of a Woke Planet from the Republican side, versus ‘Make America Great Again, Again.” You’ll see, on both...

    (CNN)When the press release showed up in my email inbox, I assumed it was a parody."MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, AGAIN! LAUNCHES," it declared. Then I read the release. And it became clear it wasn't a joke.What it was -- and is -- is a new super PAC affiliated with the former President. Known, hilariously, as "MAGA, Again!", the super PAC will take the place of the less repetitively-named Make America Great Again Action as the official super PAC of Trump. (The $5.6 million the previous committee had in the bank will be transferred -- presumably only once -- to Make America Great Again, Again!)"We look forward to building on the success of MAGA Action with our new committee, Make America Great Again, Again!" Pam Bondi, a former attorney general of Florida, said of the new group. "We are thrilled to continue to support America First candidates in the midterms and beyond."Read MoreThe change of name was driven by a desire by Trumpworld to end all association with Corey Lewandowski, Trump's one-time campaign manager, who was running the previous PAC but...
    (Pool photo via Getty by Pete Marovich for The New York Times) What do you do when the head of your Super PAC is credibly accused of sexually assaulting a woman and purportedly bragged about murdering a few people, but you want to make sure your donors keep sending you their hard-earned cash? Well, if you’re the Super PAC fanning the flames of former President Donald Trump’s desires to move back into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., you boot the guy, bring in another long-time ally, and change the PAC name just the teeniest-tiniest bit. To recap: Corey Lewandowski was accused by Trump donor Trashelle Odom of “stalking” her at an event, repeatedly groping her and making sexually harassing comments, even after being repeatedly asked to stop, eventually throwing his drink on her and insulting her. Adding to an already bonkers story, Lewandowski reportedly told Odom that he was “from a bad part of Boston” and had stabbed at least two people to death, leading her to tell police that she feared for her safety. None of Lewandowski’s past actions were enough to...

    A mystery man who paid for viral highway billboards trolling President Joe Biden has been revealed to be former Pennsylvania state senator and gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner. The billboards, showing Biden dressed like a Taliban militant, read “Making the Taliban Great Again!” and are spread along the Pennsylvania Turnpike Interstate 83, as well as Routes 322, 11-15, and 15, the York Daily Record reported . 11 MARINES, NAVY MEDIC AMONG DEAD AS KABUL CASUALTIES CLIMB Wagner said he spent about $15,000 to lease a dozen billboards for two months to bring attention to and criticize the Biden administration's evacuation of Afghanistan, during which 13 U.S. service members died and the Taliban retook the country.

    AN ex-Pennsylvania politician launched a two-month "Making the Taliban Great Again” billboard campaign chiding President Joe Biden for his handling of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.  "The pull-out rushed through by President Biden had made us the laughing stock of the world," former Republican state senator Scott Wagner explained. 
    A slew of billboards that have suddenly popped up across the state of Pennsylvania, depicting Joe Biden toting an RPG next to the slogan 'Making the Taliban Great Again,' has been revealed to be the handiwork of an ex-state senator.  Republican Scott Wagner, 65, who ran for governor of the Keystone State in 2018 and lost, proudly took credit for the batch of bizarre billboards - of which there are 15 - when a Pennsylvania news outlet asked the statesman who was responsible. Prior to the statesman's admission, plenty of Pennsylvanians had been wondering who was responsible for the posters which pay homage to Donald Trump's notorious catchphrase, 'Make America Great Again.' Wagner ended the mystery after being asked if he was behind the stunt.  'I'm not hiding from anybody, and that's how I feel,' the politician declared, after confirming he was responsible.  A slew of billboards have suddenly popped up across the state of Pennsylvania that depict Joe Biden toting an RPG next to the slogan 'Making the Taliban Great Again,' Wagner, who served the State Senate from 2014 to 2018,...

    Former President Donald Trump commemorated the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks by sharply criticizing President Joe Biden for his withdrawal from Afghanistan and assuring that "America will be made great again." Trump's political action committee released a video Saturday morning in which he hailed the bravery of the police officers and firefighters who responded to the attacks before slamming an "inept" Biden administration for how it concluded the 20-year war. "For the great people of our country, this is a very sad day. Sept. 11th represents great sorrow for our country," said Trump, a native New Yorker. "Many things were displayed that day, including, most importantly, the bravery of our police, fire, and first responders of every kind." "It is also a sad time for the way our war on those that did so much harm to our country ended last week," he continued. "The loss of 13 great warriors and the many more who were wounded should never have happened." BIDEN SAYS UNITY IS COUNTRY'S 'GREATEST STRENGTH' IN SPEECH MARKING 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF...
    Responsibility is one of the main things that separates men from boys. Environments have order and accountability when it is embraced, but disorder and confusion reign when it is abdicated. This is due in part to what I have dubbed the "law of dissipating responsibility." Similar to the law of the conservation of energy in physics, the law of dissipating responsibility states that once created, responsibility for a particular person, object, or entity is never destroyed. It is transferred from one body to another, and the level of investment, care, and concern generally diminishes with each transfer to a new party. This principle can be applied to politics as well as culture. One area where this law shows up most clearly is with children. When adults — or children making adult decisions — have a child, they are accepting responsibility for the care and protection of that child. When they fail to fulfill that responsibility, someone else who does not have the same bond with the child has to step in. One example of this principle put into practice...

    FINDING love as an older person is a story I know well. I’m lucky. I’ve had two wonderful marriages and I’m now with the third great love of my life. 4Some people never have a great love and I have had more than one, says Francine Russo 4Francine's first wedding was to Alan, she says 'I loved him intensely but could be needy' My first, with Alan, was typical of young marriages. We were both ambitious and focused on our careers. I loved him intensely but could be needy. When we had our two girls, our family became our focus and we had to fight for time as a couple. Sometimes we fought with each other and bickered over small things. By our forties, we’d grown up, fought less and accepted ourselves and each other more. We’d found our footing in our careers — he was a litigator working long hours in a law firm and I was a freelance writer. The girls were in school and life was easier. Then, at 49, Alan was struck down by a heart...
    It’s OK to be skeptical of change. Some of my earliest and fondest memories are of running through the woods in northern Minnesota, in the same logging community where my grandpa grew up and where he still owns property. I learned how to troll for pike in a nearby lake, and watched my grandpa carefully maintain his 7 acres of forest with the same mix of vegetation that was there when he was a kid. He was certainly skeptical of change, at least for that forest, and I watered my fair share of 2-foot-tall white pine trees as part of his master plan to encourage native plants to thrive and ward off invasive species. When it comes to Great River Energy (GRE), though, and how the utility provides electricity to about 1.7 million people across Minnesota, change is exactly what we need.

    That dinner was a decade ago. Before we knew what Covidstan was. Before we left Americans behind in Afghanistan. Before we debated whether to let our children mutilate themselves and call mental illness like gender dysphoria public policy. Before drag queen story time for the kiddos became a "blessing of liberty." Before we paid people more money not to work. Before "defund the police" but let domestic terrorists declare whole blocks of a major U.S. city as now "Chaz." The birth pangs are coming faster now and more severe. The stuff the Tea Party rallied against a decade ago almost seems trite now, and needless to say, that is not good. A decade later, we are on the brink as a people. We are desperate to create a two-tiered society, with those who are comrades in good standing with the Spirit of the Age pitted against those who still desire on some level to think for themselves. Mark my words: If permitted, that fault line will make even the most bitterly partisan Republican-Democrat tribalisms look like a pillow...
    17 months later Anfield was completely filled again. The entire public returned to recover a football atmosphere, with the famous ‘You’ll never walk alone’ sung a cappella, and to wrap up a Liverpool that accused too much of not being able to count on their own last year. The ‘reds’, hesitant at times, rewarded them with a meritorious victory against a good Burnley (2-0). Before starting the game there was a moment to remember the -now- 97 fatalities of the Hillsborough tragedy with a spectacular mosaic in the stands and the traditional offering to one of the captain’s goals, Jordan Henderson. Fans filled Anfield again 17 months later . The Englishman, nothing more to accommodate the floral crown in one of the Anfield funds, demanded concentration from his teammates to start playing. They did not seem to pay much attention to him, as Liverpool jumped onto the field asleep before a Burnley wanting to break the bench. His were the first dangerous offensives of the meeting. He slammed a ball against the post at the first substitution...

    Last month, the Crystal Court, the central plaza of the IDS Center, Minneapolis’ tallest building, quietly reopened after a long remodel. Like nearly every part of the downtown skyways, de facto and de jure, the atrium is not actually public space. The interior plaza is owned, operated, and policed by its property owners. It closes at 7 every evening, and remains, at root, a very large, very accessible building lobby. And yet, I view the Crystal Court as the most important public space in downtown Minneapolis. It functions as a central crossroads, a rare, instantly legible link between the hierarchically segregated worlds of the public sidewalk and the labyrinthine skyways. Even today, 50 years (and dozens of brand new skyscrapers) later, the IDS still boasts the best designed connection into the skyway system. Like the rug in “The Big Lebowski,” it really ties downtown together. And so, with great interest, I went to the corner of 7th and Marquette the other day to see how the remodel had turned out. According to the IDS marketing video, the idea was to refresh one of...

Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.This story was originally published by the Guardian, and is reproduced here as a part of Climate Desk. Governments and businesses hoping to plant trees and restore forests in order to reach net-zero emissions must sharply limit such efforts to avoid driving up food prices in the developing world, the charity Oxfam has warned. Planting trees has been mooted as one of the key ways of tackling the climate crisis, but the amount of land needed for such forests would be vast, and planting even a fraction of the area needed to offset global greenhouse gas emissions would encroach on the land needed for crops to feed a growing population, according to a report entitled Tightening the net: Net zero climate targets implications for land and food equity. At least 4 billion acres—an area five times the size of India, equivalent to all the land now farmed on the planet—would be required to reach net zero for the planet by 2050 via tree-planting alone.

    We went from “15 Days to Slow the Spread” to sliding all the way down a slippery slope of a year-plus of lockdowns, shutdowns, mask mandates, and the kind of outright government fascism the America I grew up in never would have stood for. This is why slippery-slope arguments matter. When we’re talking about the federal government, and most especially about the Democrat party, slippery-slope arguments matter – they matter a whole lot. Good grief, even after South Dakota, Texas, and Florida showed us that mask mandates, shutdowns, and lockdowns make little to no difference, the fascists in Los Angeles County have once again forced its citizens back into those filthy masks, and that includes the fully vaccinated. From “15 Days to Slow the Spread” to schoolkids sitting around in filthy masks all day. From “15 Days to Slow the Spread” to kids being forced to wear masks while playing outside. From “15 Days to Slow the Spread” to not being allowed to attend the funeral of a loved one or even visit a loved one. From “15 Days to...
    ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — University of Texas football fans want more than top 10 rankings and bowl victories. They would like to win some Big 12 titles and be in contention for national championships. While the Longhorns are still the last Big 12 team to win a national title, that was long ago — the 2005 season with Vince Young at quarterback. Their last conference crown came four years after that in a league where Baylor and Kansas State have since both been champions twice.

Tom Herman won four consecutive bowls and got the Longhorns into the top 10 during each of the past three seasons, but never won a Big 12 title. “I haven’t been focused on what happened before. I’m putting all our energy in what we’re doing now,” Sarkisian said Thursday. “I do believe in, at the end of the day, teams...

    Friends: The Reunion Rating: Once in an eon, all the planets align. That’s what Friends: The Reunion is like ... not so much a TV show, more an accident of astrology. Courteney Cox, who played Monica in the sitcom that defined the Nineties, is emphatic in tonight’s two-hour show: ‘We are not going to do this again.’ And Lisa Kudrow, who co-starred as the ditzy Phoebe, looks aghast when host James Corden diffidently suggests there might be another series or even a movie. Never, she insists. She wants to remember the characters as we left them, saying: ‘I don’t want anyone’s happy endings unravelled.’

    The following is an editorial from the Mankato Free Press. America renewed its promise to being a safe haven for refugees around the world when President Joe Biden expanded on Monday the limits for accepting these hard-working immigrants. It won’t be easy and Biden stumbled a bit approving the new limits as he had earlier announced he would. But the move was a response to bipartisan criticism that he was falling back on his promise to greatly expand the 15,000 per-year limits set by former President Donald Trump. Biden’s main concern was dealing with an influx of unaccompanied children at the border and resettling them in safe places, a system that had been somewhat dismantled by Trump. Article continues after advertisement And even though it will be difficult to resettle all of the now-allowed 62,500 refugees immediately, refugee resettlement groups applauded the move saying it gives refugees confidence in America’s commitment and they will likely make great sacrifices to start their new lives in the United States. Biden also removed Trump restrictions in limiting refugees from war-torn African and Muslim countries...

More like a rookie fence. Immanuel Quickley just needed time to scale it. The first-round pick out of Kentucky has begun to again resemble the impactful reserve guard who was so pivotal to the Knicks’ success before hitting a roadblock. Taking advantage of increased minutes due to Alec Burks (COVID-19 health and safety protocols list) missing the past seven games, Quickley has scored in double figures in four of the Knicks’ past five games. “I always try to go in and play free,” he said. “Having fun is probably the biggest thing I emphasize every time I’m on the floor.” His latest quality performance came in the team’s 113-94 victory over the Bulls on Wednesday night, a significant bounce-back win after its nine-game winning streak was snapped by the Suns on Monday. After the Knicks’ 18-point lead...
