McCarthy’s understudy Fraser Forster also picked up a muscle injury in training last weekend, leaving rookie Harry Lewis as the only fit keeper for next weekend’s trip to Arsenal. Lewis, 23, has yet to make his Premier League debut and Hasenhuttl could be forced into an emergency loan to solve his goalkeeping crisis.

    Getty The Cowboys were rumored to have an interest in Lincoln Riley before they hired Mike McCarthy. The Dallas Cowboys ultimately hired Mike McCarthy to be the team’s head coach in 2020, but ownership also explored flashier options. According to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, the Cowboys explored the possibility of hiring then-Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley, who just accepted the USC position, prior to landing McCarthy. “Second, NFL teams have flocked to Norman, Okla. the last few years to learn more about what the innovative Riley was doing, and that made him a sort of white whale for the pros to pursue, in the same way Chip Kelly once was,” Breer detailed on November 29. “Rumors were rampant that the Cowboys had interest a couple of years back, and others have kicked the tires since, and this at least should put the idea of his landing in the NFL on hold for a while.” ALL the latest Dallas Cowboys news straight to your inbox!

    Ilhan Omar said Sunday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has assured her of impending 'decisive action' against Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert and she called Kevin McCarthy a 'coward' for not condemning his caucus member's comments. 'McCarthy's a liar and a coward,' Omar said of the Republican House minority leader. 'He doesn't have the ability to condemn the kind of bigoted, Islamaphobia and anti-Muslim rhetoric that are being trafficked by a member of his conference.' 'Why doesn't he have the ability to do that?' CNN State of the Union host Jake Tapper asked the progressive representative. 'Because this is who they are,' she responded. 'And we have to be able to stand up to them, and we have to push them to reckon with the fact that their party, right now, is normalizing anti-Muslim bigotry.' On Tuesday, CNN shared a video unearthed from a Staten Island, New York Conservative Party dinner in September where Boebert made a suicide bomb joke aimed at Omar, who is a hijab-wearing Muslim. McCarthy not only defended Boebert's comments, claiming she had already apologized, but he...
    Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was a “liar and a coward” for how he handled Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) calling Omar the “jihad squad.” Anchor Jake Tapper said, “I want to start with those comments, Boebert comparing you to a terrorist suicide bomber. What is it like to hear that kind of blatant bigotry coming from a fellow member of the House of Representatives?” Omar said, “It’s shocking and unacceptable. It’s very unbecoming of a congresswoman to use that kind of derogatory, dangerous, inciting language against a colleague.” Tapper said, “Republican leader Kevin McCarthy has not publicly condemned Boebert’s comments. On Friday, he was asked, why not? Take a listen to what he said.” During a news conference, McCarthy said, “She apologized publicly. She apologized personally. She wanted to meet personally, denied the ability to meet personally. She picked up the phone, and she called Congresswoman Omar. She said I want to personally apologize to you. That’s what she did.” Tapper said, “To be clear, after her conversation with you,...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) slammed House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Sunday, calling the top Republican a “liar” and “coward” for refusing to condemn the Islamophobic attacks made by Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO). In an apparent attempt to downplay the increasingly inflammatory rhetoric coming from the most extreme members of his caucus, McCarthy last week defended Boebert after video clips surfaced of the Colorado lawmaker likening Omar to a terrorist suicide bomber while mocking her Muslim faith. “She apologized publicly, she apologized personally,” McCarthy told reporters, referencing the far-right congresswoman’s tweet in which she said she’s sorry to “anyone in the Muslim community I offended.” At the same time, Boebert has refused to directly apologize to Omar in public. Appearing on Sunday’s broadcast of CNN’s State of the Union, Omar addressed Boebert’s remarks, the lack of condemnation from GOP leadership, and the congresswoman doubling down on her bigoted attacks. “It’s shocking and unacceptable,” Omar told anchor Jake Tapper. “It’s very unbecoming of a congresswoman to use that kind of derogatory, dangerous, inciting language against a colleague. Many of us thought...
    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is denouncing the House GOP caucus and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for failing to condemn anti-Muslim attacks against her. Appearing on CNN’s State of the Union with Jake Tapper Sunday, the Minnesota Democrat blasted Republicans for turning a blind eye to comments from Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) — who recently claimed to have been on a Capitol Hill elevator with Omar, and told an audience “She doesn’t have a backpack. We should be fine.” “What is it like to hear that kind of blatant bigotry coming from a fellow member of the House of Representatives?” Tapper asked. “It’s shocking and unacceptable,” Omar replied. “It’s very unbecoming of a congresswoman to use that kind of derogatory, dangerous, inciting language against a colleague.” Omar went after McCarthy for excusing Boebert’s comments and instead touting her attempts to apologize — despite Boebert making incendiary comments after those attempts. “McCarthy is a liar and a coward,” Omar said. “He doesn’t have the ability to condemn the kind of bigoted Islamaphobia and anti-Muslim rhetoric that are being trafficked by...
    Micah Parsons has been an immediate superstar for the Cowboys but head coach Mike McCarthy’s wild comparison for him still somehow made sense.  Dallas Cowboys fans were divided the night of the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft when the franchise selected Micah Parsons. Some liked the upside of the Penn State product while others felt the pick was a mistake. After 12 games, though, there is no divide — fans know Parsons is a bonafide stud. Through his first 12 games in the NFL, Parsons, has 10.0 sacks and 72 tackles, putting him on pace to be only the second player since 2004 (James Harrison) to have double-digit sacks and over 100 tackles in a season. And when asked about how special the rookie who has lined up at both linebacker and defensive end throughout the year is, Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy had a wild comparison for Parsons: Barry Sanders (a running back). Quite a comparison by Mike McCarthy re: Micah Parsons? "He’s almost like Barry Sanders in there when he is avoiding blocks. They can’t get...
    House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy indicated Friday that he wouldn't be taking any action against Rep. Lauren Boebert for making suicide bomb jokes about Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, who is Muslim, claiming Boebert has already apologized.   'Let me be very clear. This party is for anyone and everyone who craves freedom and supports religious liberty,' McCarthy said at a Capitol Hill press conference. 'Lauren Boebert, as I called her, when it came forward we talked, she apologized publicly, she apologized personally.' McCarthy also turned the controversy around, telling reporters he didn't receive a personal apology when Democrats made disparaging comments about the California Republican and other members of his caucus.   'Did any of you raise the question when someone on their side of the aisle said I worked with the Ku Klux Klan, referring to Republicans?' he asked.  He was referring to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez saying he was working with the 'KKK caucus' in his bid for the speakership.   'Did anyone on your side of the aisle talk about when Omar said the only reason I support Israel is all about the...
    (CNN)It is never a good idea to campaign too openly for a future congressional leadership post which assumes an outcome in an upcoming election. Experience dictates members of Congress demonstrate prudence and humility before voters cast their ballots, sometimes in unpredictable ways. House Democrats learned this hard lesson in 2020 as they underperformed unexpectedly and nearly lost their majority, while Joe Biden won the presidency by a comfortable margin.House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy knows all this but is under pressure to marshal support for his likely run for House Speaker after the 2022 midterm in the event the GOP captures the majority in the House, as most pundits and pollsters are predicting. Still, it's not a good idea to be very public about any of these internal deliberations based on the recent history and the plight of former GOP House speakers.The last time House Republicans elected a speaker it was a messy affair. Let's recall history, what led up to that fight and how it impacted McCarthy. There are some moments on the floor of the US House of Representatives...
    Getty Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy The Dallas Cowboys made Mike McCarthy available to the media following Thursday’s victory over the New Orleans Saints — a game for which the COVID-afflicted head coach was not present. His reaction? “It was rough, I’m not going to lie,” McCarthy said by phone, via ESPN’s Todd Archer. “I’m proud of the guys and how it all turned out but I don’t ever want to do this again.” As for the game itself, a 27-17 triumph, McCarthy acknowledged that it wasn’t the prettiest result. Far from it. His offense again was ineffective, bailed out by an extraordinary defensive performance. The score was closer than it probably should have been considering the Saints were without their starting quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and both offensive tackles. But a win is a win is a win in this business, and McCarthy isn’t apologizing for the Cowboys moving to 8-4 on the season, their two-game losing skid now vanquished. “Adversity win, ugly win, however, you want to define it, you have to have these wins especially...
    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said that controversies surrounding Republican Reps. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Paul Gosar of Arizona, and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia are distractions that will cause problems for Republicans as the party focuses on winning back the House in next year’s midterm elections. “It's things we would not want to deal with,” McCarthy said at a press conference on Friday when asked if the three members are distractions for Republicans heading into 2022. "It is things that the American people want to focus on, stopping inflation, gas prices, and others. And anything that deviates from that causes problems, yes,” McCarthy said.

    The pro-China business group which counts two key Biden administration picks as strategic advisers likened the Justice Department’s crackdown on Chinese economic espionage to “McCarthyism” in a shocking panel discussion last month. Reta Jo Lewis, Biden’s nominee to run the Export-Import Bank, and Mitch Landrieu, the new infrastructure czar , are both listed as "strategic advisers" for the U.S. Heartland China Association, which regularly works with Chinese organizations tied to the CCP’s United Front — which Xi Jinping has described as a “magic weapon.” Last month, the USHCA released a video of a panel discussion titled “Return of McCarthyism” on YouTube. The video blasted the Department of Justice's China Initiative, which is aimed at stopping China from stealing intellectual property and economic secrets from U.S. academic institutions, describing it as reminiscent of onetime Republican Sen. Joe McCarthy, who crusaded against communist influence in the United States. “History never repeats itself, but it rhymes. At this time of political divide in America and tension between the U.S. and China, many symbols of the Cold War era are coming...
    Getty Cowboys DC Dan Quinn Perhaps it was the buzz of Bourbon Street or the natural high of victory, but Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was in a particularly affable mood following Thursday’s game against the New Orleans Saints. How affable? Jones went so far as to liken Cowboys interim head coach/defensive coordinator Dan Quinn to Hall-of-Fame coach Tom Landry. Really. “With the win, I told him he’s right there with Tom Landry,” Jones said in his postgame pow-wow with reporters, via Jori Epstein of USA Today. “He now can say he’s head coached the Cowboys.” Must’ve been the Big Easy talking … Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on @1053thefan talking about how much he loves New Orleans: “When you see me, you’re only seeing 80 percent. … Because I’ve left the other 20 percent on Bourbon Street.

    Democratic House caucus leaders are demanding that Rep. Lauren Boebert be removed from her committee assignments following racist remarks she made about Rep. Ilhan Omar, condemning the Colorado Republican for putting the progressive Democrat and Muslims across the U.S. in danger. In a statement released Wednesday, Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), Congressional Black Caucus Chair Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio), Congressional Asian Pacific American Chair Judy Chu (D-Calif.), Congressional Equality Caucus Chair David Cicilline (D-R.I.), and Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chair Raul Ruiz (D-Calif.) condemned both Boebert's conduct and the refusal of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to hold members of his caucus accountable for bigotry. "Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy has absolutely failed in leading his caucus to condemn hatred and bigotry, much less to maintain any basic standards of decency within the halls of Congress," said the Democrats. "He is unwilling or unable to control his own members from inciting violence against other members of Congress or encouraging bigotry and hatred. If he cannot lead his own caucus, he certainly will never be able...
    GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's dreams of one day becoming speaker of the House are going up in flames as the Republican caucus devolves into a raging inferno of internecine guerrilla warfare. Specifically, House GOP radicals have turned caucus politics into an unsightly brawl more resembling the kicking, screaming, hair pulling, and spitting of a middle-school rivalry than the growing pains of major political party plotting its path to renewed relevance. No one is more central to this uniquely embarrassing GOP drama than McCarthy, who has turned spinelessness into an ethic in his quest for power. McCarthy's moral deficit has left any members of the GOP conference who still possess a shred of integrity to condemn the actions of the extremists putting the lives of both their GOP colleagues and Democratic counterparts at risk. It started last month with McCarthy allowing Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia to target as "traitors" the 13 House Republicans who voted for a bipartisan infrastructure bill supported by nearly two-thirds of the country. Egged on by Greene & Co., death threats ensued, but...
    The most senior Republican in the House held meetings with two feuding congresswomen on Tuesday in a bid to make them end their explosive row - an effort which appeared to have little impact. Kevin McCarthy met separately on Tuesday with Marjorie Taylor Greene, representative for Georgia, and South Carolina's Nancy Mace. The two women have been at war since Mace, 43, condemned fellow House member Lauren Boebert's remarks about Democrat Ilhan Omar that likened the Muslim congresswoman to a suicide bomber.  Boebert twice 'joked' about Omar - one of the first two female Muslims elected to Congress - being a terrorist, telling a gathering in Staten Island and another meeting that she was concerned about Omar until she noticed she was 'not wearing a backpack', and then felt safe. The jibe was an apparent reference to a suicide bomb.  Mace said her fellow Republican's comments were offensive and wrong.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar on Tuesday played a harrowing death threat recently left for her by voicemail, while imploring House Republican leaders to do more to tamp down “anti-Muslim hatred” in their ranks and “hold those who perpetuate it accountable.” Omar, one of only a handful of Muslim members of Congress, has been the subject of repeated attacks by conservative pundits and some Republicans in Congress, which she says have led to an increase in the number of death threats she receives. The most recent instance came after a video of first-term Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert calling Omar a member of the “jihad squad” and likening her to a bomb-carrying terrorist went viral.

    On CNN Tuesday, congressional correspondent Manu Raju reported that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) simply blew off a plea from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to cease her feud with fellow Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC). "Just this evening, behind closed doors, Kevin McCarthy summoned each of them for private meetings, discussing with them and telling them this message, he wanted them to, quote, 'stop it,'" explained Raju. "That message ... did not take hold. Greene emerged from the meeting and told our colleague Melanie Zanona that she would support a primary challenge against Nancy Mace. And she also said that Donald Trump would support a primary challenge against Nancy Mace." Greene and Mace have been in a feud all day that started with Mace criticizing Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) for her Islamophobic attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN). Greene lashed out, saying that Mace was "trash," to which Mace responded that Greene is "insane." Watch below: McCarthy had a meeting with Greene and Mace and told them to stop. Greene walked out of the meeting, ignored McCarthy, and started...

    (CNN)House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy summoned GOP Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Nancy Mace for separate meetings Tuesday night, wanting to deliver a simple message amid their bitter and public feud: "Stop it." His message didn't seem to take hold. Emerging from her meeting, Greene told CNN that both she and former President Donald Trump would back a primary challenge to Mace in 2022. And after she met with McCarthy, Mace had this to say when asked about Greene's threat: "All I can say about Marjorie Taylor Greene is bless her f***ing heart."

    WAUKESHA, Wisc. – It could be a case to work smarter not harder – giving prosecutors less to prove but the same penalty if they secure a conviction against Waukesha parade suspect Darrell Brooks Jr. The Milwaukee man is accused of mowing down Waukesha’s Christmas parade. He has a violent past and had made anti-White and anti-Semitic Facebook posts before the social media giant took down his page last week. But even as Waukesha police quickly ruled out terror as a motive and have spoken little of his social media accounts, Brooks faces a half-dozen possible sentences of life in prison if convicted on six charges of first-degree intentional homicide.

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) urged voters, including independent and Democrat voters, to back the GOP ticket in the 2022 midterm elections. According to McCarthy, the key to solving many of the nation’s woes would be to “fire” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). “You know, the sad part about it, you’re right, Sean,” he said. Had Joe Biden done nothing in office, literally gone to sleep, our country would be stronger. We’d be energy-independent. It wouldn’t be China and Russia winning. It’d be America that was winning. Our borders would be secure. We wouldn’t have rising inflation. This is the problem. One-party rule in one year.” “But the good news is, Sean, in less than one year, we can fix this country if we fire Nancy Pelosi,” McCarthy continued. “That’s why I need everybody to go to FirePelosi.com, join the fight. And it’s not just Republicans who should join us, Democrats, independents. If you care about this country, if you want to change the course of history, we can do it, and we can make it happen.” Follow Jeff...
    Tuesday, November 30, 2021. 12:46 p.m. FRISCO, Texas – Dallas Cowboys rookie cornerback Nahshon Wright has been diagnosed with COVID-19, bringing to eight the number of players and coaches at the Texas club who will be sidelined in Thursday evening’s game against the New Orleans Saints due to the virus. . Head coach Mike McCarthy and his five coaches were unable to move with the team to Louisiana after receiving a positive diagnosis. Two players, Wright and Wright Tackle Terence Steel, were eliminated. Wright played defensively from time to time, often training with specialized teams. McCarthy was found to be positive on Monday and admitted to experiencing symptoms the next day. He occasionally coughs during his conference call with reporters on Tuesday. McCarthy attends video conferences of his group. Amari Cooper has been given the green light by medical professionals to return to the Cowboys training camp after missing two games due to Kovit-19. However, McCarthy noted that Cooper had not been trained and had not yet fully recovered. Cooper, who has not been vaccinated against...
    After missing two games due to testing positive for COVID, Amari Cooper’s status for Thursday Night Football is completely up in the air.  While the Dallas Cowboys have welcomed back Amari Cooper from the COVID-19 list, that doesn’t mean that all is well for the star wide receiver. That’s because there’s a chance he might miss his third consecutive game. Per head coach Mike McCarthy, Cooper is still not back to 100 percent and he’s still feeling a little ill. Because of this, it’s not certain that he’ll be able to practice on Tuesday. On top of that, it’s unknown if he’ll be able to suit up on Thursday night against the Saints. Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (COVID-19) is back in building but "still not feeling the best," coach Mike McCarthy said. Still has a cough. "To be determined" whether hell practice today.

    Getty Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper. Whether Dallas Cowboys star receiver Amari Cooper will play against the New Orleans Saints depends on who you listen to in the days leading up to game day. Hours after owner Jerry Jones indicated Cooper would suit up against the Saints, head coach Mike McCarthy revealed that the receiver is still feeling the effects of COVID. During a media call, McCarthy indicated that if Cooper does not practice on December 1 he will likely miss the Cowboys primetime matchup against the Saints. “Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (COVID-19) is back in building but ‘still not feeling the best,’ coach Mike McCarthy said,” Dallas Morning News’ Michael Gehlken tweeted on November 30. “Still has a cough. ‘To be determined’ whether he’ll practice today. ‘My gut would be if he doesn’t practice tomorrow, I don’t see him going to the game.'” ALL the latest Dallas Cowboys news straight to your inbox!

    Getty Ezekiel Elliott, Jerry Jones So much for that whole rest thing. Debunking recent media reports, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones proclaimed starting running back Ezekiel Elliott will handle a “serious load” in Thursday’s road contest against the New Orleans Saints. “The facts are we expect him to have a serious load against New Orleans,” were Jones’ exact words during a radio interview with 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday, November 30, via USA Today’s Jori Epstein. Jones’ declaration flew in the face of a November 26 report by ESPN’s Ed Werder, who wrote the Cowboys “will consider” sitting Elliott at New Orleans, allowing his balky knee time to heal following two straight early-week games. It also somewhat contradicted head coach Mike McCarthy, who himself hinted at an altered role for the $90 million centerpiece. “It’s that time of year,” McCarthy said November 26, via ESPN. “Zeke’s running style is ferocious. He gives a pounding, and he takes some hits. We need to evaluate that, and this week we’ll see what the preparation looks like for him.” His knee...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Days after firebrand conservative Rep. Lauren Boebert was harshly criticized for making anti-Muslim comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Minnesota Democrat whom she likened to a bomb-carrying terrorist, the two spoke by phone. By both lawmakers’ accounts, it did not go well. Monday’s conversation, which Boebert, a Republican who represents Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, sought after issuing a tepid statement last Friday, offered an opportunity to extend an olive branch in a House riven by tension. Instead, it ended abruptly after Boebert rejected Omar’s request for a public apology, amplifying partisan strife that has become a feature, not a bug, of the GOP since a mob of Donald Trump supporters stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6. Boebert previously apologized “to anyone in the Muslim community I offended,” but not directly to Omar. It’s just the latest example of a GOP lawmaker making a personal attack against another member of Congress, an unsettling trend that has gone largely unchecked by House Republican leaders. It also offers a test of Democrats’ newfound resolve to mete out punishment to Republicans....
    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy unveiled an ad Monday night casting the "one-party rule" of the Democratic Party as a colossal failure and issuing a rallying call for the removal of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. In the short ad, which premiered on Fox News's Hannity, the California Republican gave an unflattering list of what people got out of the Democrats controlling Congress and the White House. "One-party rule. What has one year of Democrat control of Washington given us?" he said. "Shortages, inflation, crime, chaos, division, and failure. One party, one year," McCarthy added. "I’m Kevin McCarthy. Together we can stop Joe Biden’s disastrous agenda. We can and one-party rule, fire Nancy Pelosi, and take our country back."

    Getty Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, HC Mike McCarthy Dak Prescott admitted it felt strange to roam the halls of The Star to begin a new week and not hear the unignorable voice of Mike McCarthy. But the star quarterback knows the show must go on without his COVID-positive head coach as the reeling Dallas Cowboys prepare for a Thursday night NFC road clash at New Orleans. “We’ll miss coach but his health is first and foremost important,” Prescott told reporters by phone on Monday, November 29, via USA Today’s Jori Epstein. “We’ll fight and get everything done that we need to.” Prescott learned of McCarthy’s absence before news surfaced of the latter’s positive test result and Week 13 rule-out. The Cowboys subsequently enhanced COVID protocols inside its hot-bed training facility; after three strength-and-conditioning coaches contracted the virus, the team closed the weight room and told players to temporarily “find off-site options for massage, physical therapy and maintenance,” Epstein reported. Prescott himself has taken stricter measures that include increased mask-wearing and undergoing physical therapy at his home rather than...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Days after firebrand conservative Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado was harshly criticized for making anti-Muslim comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Minnesota Democrat whom she likened to a bomb-carrying terrorist, the two spoke by phone Monday. By both lawmakers’ accounts, it did not go well. The conversation, which Boebert sought after issuing a tepid statement last Friday, offered an opportunity to extend a fig leaf in a House riven by tension. Instead, it ended abruptly after Boebert rejected Omar’s request for a public apology, amplifying partisan strife that has become a feature, not a bug, of the GOP since a mob of Donald Trump supporters stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6. Boebert previously apologized “to anyone in the Muslim community I offended,” but not directly to Omar. It’s just the latest example of a GOP lawmaker making a personal attack against another member of Congress, an unsettling trend that has gone largely unchecked by House Republican leaders. It also offers a test of Democrats’ newfound resolve to mete out punishment to Republicans. Earlier this month...
    ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin said Monday on ABC’s “The View” that the Republican Party’s “big tent” included insurrectionists, white nationalists and fear mongers when commenting on Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) calling Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) the “jihad squad.” Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, “Boebert tweeted an apology that said, ‘Anyone in the Muslim community that I offended.’ Omar said not only did she make up the whole story, she needs to be disciplined because this kind of bigotry can’t be normalized in Congress.” Hostin said, “We can’t throw up our hands up and say there is nothing we can do. I think that she can be censured. I think she should be stripped of her committees because she is on several committees. I think, Kevin McCarthy, we know that he’s not going to do anything.” She continued, “I do think that she has to be held to account. Kevin McCarthy said that the Republican Party, that he is the sort of head of right now, is a big tent party, and it seems to me that big tent party includes insurrectionists, it includes white nationalists,...

Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on Monday after Boebert was caught on video likening the Minnesota congresswoman to a terrorist. The conversation went about as well as you’d expect.  The video of Boebert made the rounds on social media over the holiday weekend, drawing condemnation from Democrats and even a Republican or two. In the footage, Boebert claims that she and Omar, who is Muslim, were sharing an elevator in the Capitol when a police officer approached them. Then comes the bigoted punchline: “I look to my left, and there she is, Ilhan Omar. I said, ‘Well she doesn’t have a backpack, we should be fine.’” Ha! Islamophobia!  Last Friday, Boebert issued a kinda-sorta apology via tweet, noting that she’d reached out to Omar’s office to speak with her directly. That conversation—which House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy claims to have helped facilitate—took place today, but, according to both Boebert and Omar, it...
    (CNN)Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado and Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota spoke on the phone, the two members of Congress confirmed Monday, amid criticism of Boebert's anti-Muslim remarks aimed at Omar.The call did little to calm tensions between the two lawmakers, as Omar says she hung up on Boebert, after she "refused to publicly acknowledge her hurtful and dangerous comments.""She instead doubled down on her rhetoric and I decided to end the unproductive call," Omar said in a statement. In posts on social media, Boebert says she spoke to Omar and that she told her, "I have reflected on my previous remarks, now as a strong Christian woman who values faith deeply I never want anything I say to offend someone's religion." She confirmed Omar had asked for a public apology -- and that instead she had challenged Omar to issue an apology of her own for some of the comments she has made in the past."I will fearlessly continue to put America first, never sympathizing with terrorists," Boebert said. "Unfortunately Ilhan can't say the same thing and...

    Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) slammed the House Republican leader on Monday, accusing Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) of cozying up to extremist members such as Lauren Boebert (R-Ga.) in his pursuit of power. Kinzinger defended an earlier tweet saying McCarthy was 'hugging the skunk' as the Republican Party weighed whether to punish Boebert for Islamophobic comments. He said the House minority leader was intent on accommodating hardliners in order to curry favor with former President Trump in his quest to become speaker next year. Mainstream conservatives, he said, were being put off by McCarthy's embrace of a fringe minority.  'These aren't the ones that you know, tweet all the time,' he told MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' program.  'They're not the ones that are going to you know, talk about Jewish space lasers and make, you know, crazy racist jokes just so that they can get more Twitter followers because they don't take governance seriously.  'These are actually members of Congress that take governance seriously.' Rep. Adam Kinzinger accused House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of cozying up to an extremist fringe of Republicans as...
    Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) compared Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to a terrorist. Fox News Channel has mostly ignored Rep. Lauren Boebert's (R-CO) Islamophobic comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), briefly mentioning the incident only on one program over a three-day period. On Thursday, a video of Boebert speaking to supporters was posted online. In the video, Boebert called Omar, who is Muslim, part of "the jihad squad." She also claimed that when riding an elevator with Omar she thought, "Well, she doesn't have a backpack, so we should be fine." Omar responded to the tweet, writing, "Anti-Muslim bigotry isn't funny & shouldn't be normalized. Congress can't be a place where hateful and dangerous Muslims tropes get no condemnation." The next day, Boebert wrote, "I apologize to anyone in the Muslim community I offended with my comment about Rep. Omar." Omar was frequently a target of bigoted attacks from former President Donald Trump, and in 2019, she reported that she had received death threats as a result. A review of...

Nearly two years after COVID-19 began to spread, its spread is still rippling throughout the globe and throughout the NFL. Rather than a player being placed in COVID protocol it’s a coach.

    It is with great pride that I can say I am finally a homeowner—pride for all of the obvious reasons, from the opportunity to build generational wealth to simply having a place for my family to retreat to in hard times generation after generation. But as rewarding a feeling as homeownership is, the housing market and my own sliver of the larger story have dimmed my hope for the future. Journalist after journalist has been reporting on shortages in housing inventory pushing the dream of homeownership out of reach for many Americans.  “My father was an electrician and my mother was a home healthcare worker,” New York writer and author Jelani Cobb tweeted earlier this month. “It occurred to me recently that by the time I made enough to purchase the home they raised me in I had a doctorate, tenure and had written several books. We’ve effectively turned housing into a luxury.” The tweet attracted the attention of Ada Ferrer, a Cuban American historian and professor at New York University. “My mom a seamstress, my father a short-order cook, never owned a home,” she tweeted in...
    (CNN)The US Chamber of Commerce last year endorsed 23 vulnerable freshman House Democrats -- the most in at least a decade -- and enraged House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy and other top Republicans who accused their long-time big business allies of heresy. A year later, the Chamber is now lobbying hard against the nearly $2 trillion centerpiece of President Joe Biden's agenda, the Build Back Better bill, which those Democrats who are still in Congress backed when it passed the House this month along party lines. Now it'll be extremely difficult for those same Democrats to earn the powerful business lobby's coveted endorsement in the 2022 midterms. "Earlier this year the Chamber was clear: reconciliation was a deal breaker," said Ashlee Rich Stephenson, the group's senior political strategist, referring to the sweeping bill. "You have to earn the endorsement every cycle. ... Just because maybe you were supported once doesn't mean you will be next time." As the Republican coalition frayed over Biden's sweeping infrastructure law, which the Chamber backed, and remains divided over former President Donald Trump's role in...
