I m thankful:

    Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. Turkey, stuffing, pie, four-day weekend… What’s not to love? But what makes Thanksgiving especially enjoyable are all the neurotic and narcissistic whiners who use the holiday to pretend they’re not Nazis. Nobody stole your land, you godless crybaby. Nobody slaughtered you or anyone you know, you squealing little gerbil. Why don’t you cry some more, bitch, while I add another dollop of whipped cream onto this fat slice of sweet potato pie. Yes, it’s these whiners who remind me of just how good life is in America. Imagine a country where life is so good that the only thing a bunch of overprivileged, simpering little bitches have to bitch about is shit that happened 150 years ago to people they don’t know and are not related to. That sounds like a pretty great country to me. Imagine a country so great that the only thing these professional, all-about-me moaners can find to moan about (when they’re not manufacturing race hoaxes) is stuff that happened so long ago Joe Biden doesn’t remember it.

    Chishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim took the opportunity on Thanksgiving to make a grand gesture to those in need. The "All My Children" actress, 40, and luxury real estate tycoon, 44, spent part of their holiday giving back to the Los Angeles community in a big way when the couple volunteered their time to serve hot meals to the homeless at the Los Angeles Mission. "Had such a great day volunteering with @thelamission who hosted such an amazing Thanksgiving for the homeless of LA today," Stause captioned a photo of herself and her "Selling Sunset" costar and boyfriend.  "This is a cause close to my heart and I feel like speaking on it helps dismiss the conventional stereotype some people have of who these people are," she added of the successful event.

    Disgraced former Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) posted a Thanksgiving message with a picture showing his mother and three daughters on Thursday. The 63-year-old stepped down from office after investigators with New York Attorney General Letitia James wrote a report concluding he sexually harassed 11 women, according to the Daily Mail. “Today and everyday, I’m thankful for my girls Cara, Mariah & Michaela and for our family’s rock, my mom, Matilda Raffa Cuomo,” he wrote in the social media message: Today and everyday, I’m thankful for my girls Cara, Mariah & Michaela and for our family’s rock, my mom, Matilda Raffa Cuomo.

This week, the New York Assembly released an independent impeachment report with “profoundly disturbing” findings regarding Cuomo. The document said Cuomo allegedly sexually harassed 12 women, including seven staff members, hid the right number...
    The White House blocked media access to President Joe Biden’s video conference call with members of the armed forces on Thanksgiving. Biden traveled via his motorcade to the United States Coast Guard Station Brant Point in Nantucket to hold the traditional video conference call with the troops, but the press was not allowed in to watch him speak. According to the White House, Biden spoke with the Marine Corps 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit at sea on the Arabian Gulf, the Navy’s USS Milius (DDG-69) at sea on the East China Sea, the Air Force 837th Training Squadron at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, the Coast Guard’s Air Station Kodiak in Alaska, the Space Force’s 18th Space Control Squadron in California, and the Army 194th Armored Regiment in Camp Buehring, Kuwait. The decision to curb access to the video call is a departure from the level of access in past years. When former president Donald Trump was president, he hosted his entire Thanksgiving video call with the press and typically answered several questions from reporters. Biden only spoke to...

    SAN JOSE (KPIX) — Families across the country are grateful to be able to gather in person on Thanksgiving for the first time since the pandemic began. Count among those thankful Marlene Swendsen who has ten children and 20 grandchildren. “This is the focus of my life, my husband and I, 47 years,” Swendsen said. “Look at all we’ve created — a tremendous amount to be thankful for.” Last year, this large family spent Thanksgiving apart for the first time in more than four decades. “I’m thankful for being able to get together with family again. We missed it last year and this is a wonderful opportunity,” said Swendsen’s son Mark Swendsen.

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- On this Thanksgiving Day, we asked people in San Francisco to share what they are thankful for. Most people said they are happy to enjoy the little things."I am thankful for the beautiful day we had," said Kate Osterland, who was in town visiting the city. "It was a good day for a run.

    Disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo shared a Thanksgiving message with a family photo including his mother and three daughters - one of whom is seen wearing a $1,300 Stella McCartney sweater.

    SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) — For many families, the pandemic has changed how we celebrate Thanksgiving. Gatherings might be smaller, hugs might be replaced with fist bumps and the dining chairs might be spread out a little farther. That doesn’t change the fact that Thanksgiving is still an ideal time to reflect on what we are grateful for. KPIX set up a camera along the San Francisco waterfront and asked passersby “what are you thankful for?” “I’m most thankful for all the quality time that I’m getting with my parents. I’m finally seeing them a little after two years!” said San Francisco resident Mansi Sharma whose parents flew in from Delhi, India. “It’s extremely emotional, it reminds me of home because, for me, my parents are my home!” “I finally got my citizenship around two months ago. The reason why I’m coming here is for the American dream,” said new U.S. citizen, Simon Cheng. One woman had a simple answer that many can relate to: “I’m thankful for my good health.” “Visiting from Dallas here. The fact that we can...
    “I’ve got something I’d like to say.” That’s what I usually offer up as a preamble, as I try to get the attention of my kids and other family members gathered around the Thanksgiving table. It usually takes a couple of attempts, but once we’re all on the same page, I offer words of thanks for my ancestors. I talk about how brave they must have been to leave the communities of their birth—which were at least familiar, despite the hardship, discrimination, and all-too-common violence they faced—and come to a land where they didn’t speak the language, didn’t know the culture, and, in many cases, didn’t know a soul. In this offering, I mention the family names of the people who came and the places they came from. We’ve done quite a bit of genealogical research—on my side and my wife’s side of the family—and are lucky to have as much information as we do. My goal is to give my kids a sense of who their ancestors were, and what they went through to give us a chance to...

    Wanda Traczyk-Stawska continues to kick ass antifa-style. Wanda Traczyk-Stawska is an outspoken 94-year-old Polish freedom fighter. She is a veteran of the Warsaw uprising, joining the resistance when she was 17 years old. Her youth and small stature earned her the nickname “Doughnut” within the resistance. She was a hardcore anti-fascist. She still is a hardcore anti-fascist. That fight extends today to the rights of women, migrants, and refugees.  Earlier in November, Wanda was given the title of Warsaw Citizen of the Year, voted on by citizens of Warsaw. According to the mayor of Warsaw, Rafał Trzaskowski, Traczyk-Stawska received the most votes of any awardee ever. During her acceptance speech, Traczyk-Stawska called on women to reclaim the rights that have been whittled away by conservatives over the past decades: “I accept this honor to tell you that we women by the 31st Order were granted the same rights as men. We had military ranks and decorations. We were treated the same as men. And now, in free Poland, this right has been taken away from us, so that we would have a decision that belongs to us,...

    PLYMOUTH (CBS) – Members of Native American tribes from around New England gathered in the seaside town where the Pilgrims settled — not to give thanks, but to mourn Indigenous people worldwide who’ve suffered centuries of racism and mistreatment.

    Vince Biegel took a circuitous route to land back on the Miami Dolphins’ active roster this week ahead of Sunday’s home game against the Carolina Panthers. After missing the entire 2020 season with a torn Achilles, the outside linebacker who contributed significantly in 2019 suffered a calf injury in training camp. He was released with an injury settlement in early September, freeing him up to join another team. But Biegel found himself re-signing for a spot back on the Dolphins’ practice squad in October and was activated for two games this season. With fellow outside linebacker Brennan Scarlett placed on injured reserve following Sunday’s win at the New York Jets, Biegel was the obvious choice to replace him on the team’s 53-man roster. “I think the game of football is a journey and sometimes the gift is the struggle,” said Biegel on Wednesday. “It’s been quite a journey this year, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I’m just thankful to be back with a great organization like the Dolphins and help this team come out...
    Vince Biegel took a circuitous route to land back on the Miami Dolphins’ active roster this week ahead of the team’s Sunday home game against the Carolina Panthers. Already missing the entire 2020 season with a torn Achilles, the outside linebacker that contributed significantly in 2019 was injured with a calf strain in training camp this year. He was released with an injury settlement in early September, freeing him up to join another team. Biegel found himself signing back onto the Dolphins’ practice squad in October, elevated for two different games and, with fellow outside linebacker Brennan Scarlett placed on injured reserve following Sunday’s win at the New York Jets, Biegel was the natural replacement, signed for good to the 53-man roster. “I think the game of football is a journey and sometimes the gift is the struggle,” said Biegel on Wednesday. “It’s been quite a journey this year, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I’m just thankful to be back with a great organization like the Dolphins and help this team come out and win ball games.”...

    Did Mac Jones just ruin any chance of rookie of the year with his take on Thanksgiving desserts? Depends who you ask.  The New England Patriots quarterback revealed his controversial take during an appearance Monday on WEEI’s "Merloni & Fauria," where he began by saying he "doesn’t really care" about what’s on the table at Thanksgiving dinner.  PATRIOTS’ BILL BELICHICK’S FAVORITE THANKSGIVING DISH: ‘LOAD ‘EM UP’  "I just eat whatever we have," Jones said.  "I don’t like apple pie either," he said after also dismissing pecan pie.

    Her Christian faith was unshaken, and she obeyed Jesus' commands to love God and to love others as herself. She volunteered with Restoration Ministries in Shamokin, Pennsylvania, distributing food to those in need. Jessica was sweet, and she was kind and helpful. Everyone who met her loved her. Many tears were shed for her from relatives and friends at the funeral. She is remembered well by all who knew her. This year, the Thanksgiving celebration in my family is tinged by sadness, because we loved Jessica and we miss her greatly. But we are nevertheless grateful to God for the life that she lived, for the joy she brought us, for the service she gave to others out of love for them. We are glad that we can gather together to remember Jessica and give thanks to God for the blessing that she was to each of us, and to many more. We are also thankful for the doctors and health care workers, who valiantly fought to save her life and the lives of many others. And for...
    NANTUCKET, Mass. (AP) — President Joe Biden on Thursday wished Americans a happy and closer-to-normal Thanksgiving, the second celebrated in the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic, in remarks welcoming the resumption of holiday traditions in many homes. “As we give thanks for what we have, we also keep in our hearts those who have been lost and those who have lost so much,” the president said in a video greeting recorded with first lady Jill Biden at the White House before their trip to Nantucket, Massachusetts, for the holiday weekend. On Nantucket, the Bidens visited the Coast Guard station at Brant Point to meet virtually with U.S. servicemembers from around the world and chat with personnel at the station. “I’m thankful for these guys,” the president said when asked what he was thankful for, referring to the Coast Guard members standing ramrod straight in front of him on the grounds. The press was not allowed inside to witness his remarks to servicemembers abroad. Well-wishers waved and cheered as the Bidens traveled by motorcade to the Coast Guard station. From Nantucket,...
    BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — Ahmaud Arbery’s mother woke up Thursday with a new, very important blessing on Thanksgiving Day. But there will still be an empty chair at the family’s celebrations. It is a reminder that while she feels justice was served when the three white men who helped shoot her son were convicted Wednesday for cornering and killing him he ran through a coastal Georgia neighborhood, she will never be made whole again because her son is gone. “This is the second Thanksgiving we’ve had without Ahmaud. But at the same time I’m thankful. This is the first Thanksgiving we are saying we got justice for Ahmaud,” Arbery’s mother, Wanda Cooper-Jones, told The Associated Press in an interview Thursday. The three white men who chased and killed Arbery in Brunswick in February 2020 were all convicted of murder Wednesday. They cornered Arbery after finding out he had been seen on a surveillance camera at a nearby house under construction and wanted to question him about recent burglaries in the area. Arbery ran through the neighborhood and other areas near...

    Students in Oneonta, Alabama, gave a huge round of applause for their classmate, nine-year-old JD Alfaro, when he received a merit award from emergency crews. The award was in appreciation for his quick thinking that saved his mother’s life, WBRC reported Tuesday. “I was having a heart attack. A full-blown heart attack,” his mother, Regina Alfaro, explained. “I had three stints put in that day and later 3 more stints. He saved my life. If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t be here.” The family was on their way home from JD’s football practice when she began experiencing acute pain. She told the boy not to be concerned, but he immediately called 911 for help. “I wanted to call 911 because she was screaming in pain and I was crying too,” JD noted. “I needed to save her.

    I think we all really had hoped 2021 was going to be a miracle comeback year after 2020, and the final assessment will probably end up as “Well, that could have been worse.” But with Thanksgiving here, let’s take a moment to reflect on the positive. So here’s my annual list of people and things I’m grateful for that kept this year in Silicon Valley from falling into the “worse” category. • Dr. Sara Cody and the other Bay Area health officers still top my list for what’s been an amazing vaccination campaign in the region, where the percentage of vaccinated people is in the high-70s. And they haven’t been alone: Donations from Silicon Valley tech leader Godfrey Sullivan and a bunch of Bay Area companies led by Bloom Energy VP Carl Guardino turned the pediatric vaccination clinic at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds’ Exposition Hall into an awesome jungle experience with palm trees, animal statues, paper lanterns and activities for kids. • All the Bay Area arts groups that went through hoops — sometimes moving hoops — to bring live...

    (CNN)We're living through a life-changing pandemic, an assault on democracy and a reckoning with racial justice. But it's the economy and inflation souring the overall mood for Americans.There's plenty of cause for concern on social, political and health issues. Covid-19 cases are up in most states, signaling yet again that the virus is here to stay. A series of court cases proved the national reckoning on issues of race is as complicated and unsolvable as ever. And looming behind every story on politics is the expected, attempted comeback of former President Donald Trump, who this time last year was plotting a coup. Sometimes these stories dovetail, as when Trump met with Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who was recently acquitted after killing two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last summer.On Wednesday, meanwhile, President Joe Biden pointed to the conviction of three White men in the death of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man, as proof that "our justice system (is) doing its job."What may touch more Americans more directly every day, however, is the state of the US economy.Read MoreHere is the...
    GRAPEVINE, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – On Thursday, families will gather to celebrate what they have and what they can be the thankful for. For a growing number of them, it’s life itself after surviving severe bouts with COVID-19.

Sue and Billy Szendrey with their dog (CBS 11). For four months last year, Billy was away from his chair and on a hospital bed clinging to life because of COVID-19.

    New York Times editorial board member Michelle Cottle commemorated Thanksgiving with a piece hailing "The Republicans we're thankful for." "It has been a tough year for fans of American democracy. The sacking of the Capitol on Jan. 6 set the tone. Former President Donald Trump’s chokehold on the Republican Party continues to fuel its most unhinged impulses and elements. More than two-thirds of Republicans buy the lie that the 2020 election was stolen," Cottle began her piece on Wednesday.  NEW YORK TIMES SLAMMED BY FEMALE SENATORS FOR ‘SEXIST’ FOCUS ON KYRSTEN SINEMA'S STYLE "Too many party leaders who know better are playing along… But there have been exceptions, select Republicans who have put the public good ahead of partisan and personal interests — some more dramatically than others. Not that these folks are saints, or even consistent in their commitment. But these days, even glimmers of responsible, pro-democratic behavior amid the miasma of Trumpism merit a shout-out. So in the spirit of the season, let us give thanks for these rare Republican pockets of character and duty," Cottle wrote.  ...

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Gratitude is timely during the run up to Thanksgiving. And yet at Oak Cliff’s Momentous School, lessons in appreciation are taught right alongside academics all year long. “It really has a magical power,” explains Principal Daniel Knoll. “When students are working together, and a student might show them how to do a problem a certain kind of way that maybe they didn’t know how to do before. And the child says ‘thank you’, ‘thank you for teaching me something’, it just deepens that relationship with one another and that level of respect and care.” Simply put: emotions matter. “When my friends say, ‘thank you’ to me, it makes me feel happy,” shares Amy, a 6-year-old first grade student. “When students notice and care for one another, they’re able to go deeper into their learning in ways they wouldn’t if they didn’t know how to appreciate one another.” So, while “circle time” is common to set the tone for the day at many schools, at Momentous School, staffers go deeper to show that emotions matter. “We say ‘hi’...
    ONE Championship is running a Thanksgiving Day card this year. A lot of fans of Mixed Martial Arts came from other sports or forms of entertainment, like American football and professional wrestling. Both entities are known for their Thanksgiving Day/Week-themed events. The Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys are staples on television on Thanksgiving, while the WWE debuted The Survivor Series on Thanksgiving Day in 1987, as was the Original Starrcade. MMA has not embraced the holiday with as much gusto as others. ONE Championship may be trying to change that. Their event, NextGen III, will be airing for fight fans across the world on the day after us American’s celebrate Thanksgiving. It’s not a major card by any means, most casual MMA fans won’t know many of the names on this card, if any, and even the diehards will have to scratch their chin trying to see if they can’t figure out who’s who. That’s the point of the card, however, to give rising new talent an opportunity to showcase their skills. Former UFC prospect  Jarred Brooks is headlining the...
    Nobody who has been reading my column here at Dailymail.com the last few months will be shocked at how divided Americans are as a nation and a culture. A recent survey by the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia found that about 50% of Donald Trump voters and 40% of Joe Biden voters agree to some extent with the proposition that the country should split up, with either red or blue states seceding. It is both shocking and jarring that so many citizens find so little in common or that connects us that half of the country thinks we are better off scrapping our 250 year experiment with freedom and democracy. I get it, there is a lot to be pessimistic about after five particularly horrible years that started with the chaos of the Trump administration and are continuing with the ineptitude and extremism of the Biden administration. Inflation, Afghanistan, insane school boards and woke culture run amok, a media that signals it's okay to loot businesses as long as it is in the name of racial justice,...
    ‘Tis the season to be thankful for a bountiful harvest. Coronavirus and its variants made 2021 a difficult year in many ways for many people, especially economically speaking. Yet numerous business patterns charted a course to be grateful for – even if you haven’t been lucky enough to be helped by any or all of these moves. In the spirit of holiday gratitude, I offer my appreciation of 10 trends in the commercial world that we’ve witnessed since our last traditional turkey meal — without noting the conundrums, complications, consequences or controversies tied to these swings.

    Hosts of The View are grateful for a president this Thanksgiving, and — surprise — it's not former President Donald Trump . Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Sara Haines praised President Joe Biden on Wednesday. They listed each accomplishment they were grateful for, from infrastructure to coronavirus relief.

    More than three-fourths of Americans are worried inflation will affect their winter, with 51 per cent concerned they 'won't be able to afford what they need during the holidays,' a new poll reveals. A Yahoo/YouGov survey taken the week before Thanksgiving shows 77 per cent of Americans feel inflation is affecting their lives – and 57 per cent blame it on President Joe Biden. Among Democratic voters, 25 per cent say Biden is not doing enough to address inflation and another 39 per cent say they aren't sure. This means that 64 per cent of the president's own party don't have much confidence in his response to the inflation crisis. Inflation is hitting three-decade highs in the midst of a supply chain issue exacerbated by worker shortages. From October 2020 until now, prices overall in the U.S. have soared by 6.2 per cent. Republicans say they feel the effects of inflation at a higher rate than Democrats.

    As Thanksgiving approaches with the remainder of the holiday season nipping at its heels, I tend to turn inward this time of year for a period of personal reflection. For the most part, my family and friends are back in Oklahoma. Because of this, I lack the distractions normally associated with a busy holiday season built around endless gatherings and festive parties. The little monkey in my brain that chitter-chatters all day long wants to focus on some perceived lack for not having a picturesque and idealistic Norman Rockwell holiday season. However, I have learned to distract the little critter by setting another task in front of it. One that is inevitably more healthy and positive. What am I grateful for? With the pandemic, I spend even more time in my own company. I have literally adapted to communing with nature as though they are my family and friends. I often refer to them as such and experience overwhelming gratitude for the simplest things these days. That is, when the little monkey is behaving. Finding gratitude in nature, and particularly...

They got up. They got knocked down and got back up,' Biden said, putting his arm around one of the staff next to him.

    Rod Lamkey/CNP via ZUMA Press Wire Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.Perhaps the defining characteristic of Kyrsten Sinema’s first nine months in the Senate majority was a persistent, intractable silence. The Arizona Democrat, whose corporate-friendly centrism and dogmatic embrace of bipartisanship has made her one of the most critical and difficult votes in the chamber for President Joe Biden’s agenda, has often been as inaccessible to members of the press as she has been to her constituents. While her political idol John McCain considered accessibility central to the job, Sinema seems to believe it gets in the way of hers—that brokering deals between Democrats and a few Republicans requires keeping your cards as close to the vest as possible and not letting anyone else know what you’re thinking. But in the last week, Sinema has begun to open up in a series of interviews with local reporters in Arizona and in conversations with Politico (“In a 35-minute interview in her miniature, pink-hued Capitol hideaway office”) and the...
    LONG BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- The California Abilities Network, also known as ICAN, is a nonprofit that connects people with disabilities to jobs in their community.They just opened a new location in Long Beach and kicked off the holiday season by throwing a Friendsgiving event."Many of our clients live in diverse housing environments, but also work in various work contexts, and so we try to provide not only an opportunity to learn life skills and get them jobs, but also to provide them an authentic community," said Scott Elliott, executive director of ICAN.ICAN'S other site is located in Torrance.

    (CNN)The season of giving thanks can't come quickly enough for some parents.Four in five parents who responded to a poll from the University of Michigan Health say children today are not grateful enough. Parents who responded to the poll say they are teaching their children the magic words, "please and thank you." However, when it comes to actions over words, the children -- and parents -- could be falling short, said Sarah Clark, research scientist at the University of Michigan and co-director of the poll.Nearly all parents say it's possible to teach children gratitude, and three-fourths of parents say teaching gratitude is a priority. The most common ways parents teach children gratitude are "please and thank you," followed by enforcing chores. Just over one-third of parents use strategies like donating toys or clothes and saying a prayer of thanks."My hope is a poll like this causes some parents to stop and think about, 'Are we being purposeful about teaching our kids how to be grateful?'" Clark said.Read MoreFor teens who are glued to social media, this 4-step plan can help...
