    The last pending civil lawsuit seeking to stop the California high-speed rail project hit a wall Tuesday when a state appeals court affirmed a lower court ruling that the project did not violate the California Constitution by adopting a segmented approach to building the system. The case alleged that the project violated key restrictions written into the 2008 Proposition 1A bond act that required the $9 billion be spent only for segments that are “suitable and ready for high-speed train operation.” The bond act contained a wide range of restrictions that applied to how the money would be spent, the speed of the trains and the trip times it would eventually make between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The case, brought by San Joaquin Valley farmer John Tos, former high-speed rail Chairman Quentin Kopp and the city of Atherton, was rejected in a 26-page opinion issued by a three-judge panel of the 3rd District Court of Appeal in Sacramento. The bullet train project has encountered an array of problems with financing, permits, engineering and land acquisition, but it has a...
    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...
    MTV/Instagram The Challenge: War of the Worlds cast Theo Campbell has made it no secret that he wants to return to “The Challenge” after his impressive rookie season, where he placed second overall in the “War of the Worlds” final. The “Love Island” star has tweeted a few times that he’d love to return but a recent comment he made on social media attracted the attention of a co-star who blasted him. The British reality star only appeared on two seasons of “The Challenge,” the two installments of “War of the Worlds.” In his rookie season, he was paired up with Cara Maria Sorbello and had a strong season, eventually finishing second place behind the winner, Turbo Çamkıran. He went into elimination once, beating Kyle Christie in a Hall Brawl. He returned the following season for “War of the Worlds 2” but didn’t have the numbers on his side and went into elimination four times. He won the first three, including another against Kyle and one against Johnny Bananas but was eliminated from the show in the 11th...

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has physically healed from injury, but mentally healing from his first career absence could be the challenge. Russell Wilson is 0-3 since returning from his finger injury. The prolific Pacific Northwest passer hasn’t scored more than 15 points in a game since his Week 10 return. In his first game, he was held to zero. Then 13 points, then 15, due to a miraculous last-second touchdown against the Washington Football Team. Wilson’s flash of brilliance was almost enough to take the game to overtime, but it confirmed something else: Wilson’s poor play is not a physical problem. Can we agree that @DangeRussWilson middle finger is better? The grip and deep ball accuracy are back.

    Stephanie Keith/Getty Former President Donald Trump really wants to be on television, evidenced by a follow-up message to Monday’s televised debate challenge to, well, anyone it seems, who is willing to discuss his baseless allegations of election fraud. In a newly released statement Tuesday morning, Trump opened by noting that “It’s really interesting, everybody wants me on television, I get the highest ratings by far, they need ratings to survive, and yet I put out a challenge to debate me about the massive election fraud, which took place in the 2020 Presidential Election, and there are no takers—think of it, zero takers for the so-called ‘ratings machine.'” There is a LOT going on in that sentence. Not only is it a world-class run-on sentence, but it opens with a curious, and perhaps undermining boast of “It’s really interesting.” You know someone feels the need to ramp up interest when they open with the proclamation that it is, allegedly, really interesting. The other part is the obvious conflict he admits himself.  He claims that everybody wants to put him on television, before...
    FOOTBALL fans on social media have conjured up a sensational theory that Lionel Messi has Brighton striker Neal Maupay to thank for winning a record SEVENTH Ballon d'Or. Some believe a challenge by Maupay in June 2020 on then Arsenal No1 Bernd Leno sparked a sensational chain of events, ending with Messi winning the award. 2Maupay's challenge on Leno that saw Martinez promoted to Arsenal's starting XICredit: EPA 217 months after Maupay's challenge, Messi won yet another Ballon d'OrCredit: AP One mystic fan wrote on Twitter: "Hard to believe the road to Messi winning an unprecedented 7th Ballon D’or began with Neal Maupay hacking down Bernd Leno." Maupay's challenge saw Leno stretchered off and out injured as a consequence. That meant back-up Emiliano Martinez was called into the starting line-up. From there he helped Arsenal win the FA Cup that season, earning a move to Aston Villa to be No1 choice between the sticks. Continuing to impress in the West Midlands Martinez was then called up to Argentina for the first time. And it was...
    MTV Cast from 'The Challenge: All Stars' 2 The third episode of “The Challenge: All Stars” season two saw one friendship between competitors fracture as an argument in the house turned into a game-ending decision. Warning: This article contains spoilers for the third episode of “The Challenge: All Stars” season 2, which dropped on Paramount+ on Thursday, November 25. At the beginning of the third episode, viewers saw Ayanna Mackins and Sophia Pasquis hit a difficult moment in their friendship as Sophia was triggered by a type of braid that Ayanna was doing in her hair. Ayanna and Sophia had an argument over Sophia’s reaction and Ayanna left the room. Both found themselves on the losing team for the following challenge and, since Ayanna was the female captain and holding the life shield she won in the last elimination, she decided to choose her replacement for the upcoming elimination. Ayanna picked Sophia to go into the Arena, which hurt her and didn’t help matters between the two. Sophia was ultimately eliminated by Jodi Weatherton and after the episode...

    (CNN)The Pentagon will focus on building up bases in Guam and Australia to better prepare the US military to counter China, a senior defense official said on Monday.The moves have been prompted by the Department of Defense's global posture review, which President Joe Biden ordered Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin to undertake shortly after taking office in February. Austin started the global posture review in March. The review is classified, but a senior defense official provided some details about the review's findings.The Indo-Pacific region was a major focus, because of Secretary Austin's emphasis on "China as the pacing challenge," for the Department, the senior defense official said. Taiwan scrambles fighters to see off Chinese warplanes as Xi meets top brassThe Biden administration has made countering China its main foreign policy priority as tensions have increased with Beijing, particularly over the issue of Taiwan and senior Pentagon officials have publicly expressed alarm about China's efforts to upgrade and modernize its military.

    Illinois racing officials are challenging a request to allow off-track betting by Arlington International Racecourse, even though it is not licensed for racing next year, as the statute appears to require. Hawthorne Race Course officials proposed that they could instead take over the parlors, which allow gamblers to bet remotely on races around the country and watch them on television. The decision, set for next month, could affect millions of dollars in bets and horse racing purses. Arlington owner Churchill Downs Inc. shut down the track permanently in September and has a preliminary agreement to sell the site for $197 million to the Chicago Bears. Some members of the Illinois Racing Board expressed disbelief that Churchill Downs is now trying to make money off the very horse racing industry that they say it devastated. Commissioner Alan Henry said it’s “plain common sense” that Arlington shouldn’t get the licenses after closing its track, saying, “It seems an awful lot like a farmer who sells his prize Holstein (cow), then expects to get paid for some of the milk...

    Travelers walk through the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport on November 21, 2021 in Detroit, Michigan.Matthew Hatcher | Getty Images U.S. airlines over Thanksgiving week had some of their busiest days since before the coronavirus was declared a pandemic as travelers returned in droves to reunite with family after a subdued holiday last year. The Transportation Security Administration screened nearly 2.5 million people on Sunday, the most since Feb. 15, 2020. That was about 15% below the number of people TSA screened two years earlier. Airports, planes and parking lots were packed but travelers and airlines lucked out with mostly good weather and small numbers of cancellations, unlike the mass disruptions that affected hundreds of thousands of passengers during several episodes since this summer. Airlines including Southwest and American had offered flight attendants and other staff extra pay or bonuses for working holiday trips and meeting attendance goals. Despite the surge in air travel over the holiday, airlines are now facing a new challenge as more countries report cases of the omicron variant of Covid-19, just as international travel was...
    Paul J. Richards, AFP Former President Donald Trump is ginning for a fight. Specifically, a televised debate with anyone of seeming import to a debate “that the 2020 Election was rigged and stolen.” Cynics will see this as a naked play for attention and a way to amplify his baseless claims that his loss to President Joe Biden in the 2020 general election was only the result of a massive and coordinated conspiracy. “I am willing to challenge the heads of the various papers or even far left politicians, who have perpetuated the Real Big Lie, which is voter irregularities and fraud on a massive and determinative scale,” he wrote. “This includes members of the highly partisan Unselect Committee of Democrats who refuse to delve into what caused the January 6th protest—it was the Fake Election results!” Trump made the challenge in a Sunday night statement sent out via his Save America PAC newsletter, which has become his go-to communications platform since being kicked off of Twitter. Trump has recently limited his television appearances to the sorts of super friendly outlets...

    A guest on ABC’s "Good Morning America" posed concerns over how the omicron variant of the coronavirus could affect President Biden’s economic record. ABC congressional correspondent Rachel Scott filled in as the anchor for the morning show on Sunday when she spoke with deputy political director Averi Harper on the emergence of this new variant. Namely, Scott asked what kind of challenge the omicron variant posed to Biden.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston FOXBORO (CBS) — Mike Vrabel was a fiery player throughout his NFL career. He remains a fiery presence on the sidelines as the Titans’ head coach. That high level of emotion was on display in the second quarter of Sunday’s game between the Patriots and Titans. On a third-and-goal from the 1-yard line, Ryan Tannehill lined up under center and fired a quick pass to Nick Westbrook-Ikhine. The receiver made the catch and lunged toward the goal line, appearing to score a touchdown. But the official running in from the left pylon quickly and confidently ruled that the ball didn’t cross the goal line before Westbrook-Ikhine was down. Mike Vrabel did not like this. The coach traipsed down to the 10-yard line, loudly and demonstrably arguing with the official while holding his red challenge flag in his hand. Vrabel pointed up to the top of the stadium, likely indicating that the replay official could have buzzed down to rule that one a touchdown. Alas, that call never came. The Titans’ offense looked to the sideline, looking...

    STUDENTS have reportedly been suspended over a new TikTok challenge. School officials are now issuing warnings over the ‘Who Want Smoke’ TikTok challenge. 1Students in at least two schools in separate states have made headlines for participating in the ‘Who Want Smoke’ TikTok challenge What is the Who Want Smoke TikTok challenge? The ‘Who Want Smoke’ TikTok challenge involves people holding up their phones to the camera as if it were a weapon and simulating gun violence. The online challenge is inspired by Nardo Wick’s song “Who Want Smoke." Videos have been seen to generate hundreds of thousands of views - with some even achieving over 8 million. As a result of the trend, more than 50 students from West Creek High in Clarksville, Tennessee have been suspended, according to Clarksville Now.

              more   The Massillon Police Department on Tuesday issued a warning to parents about a destructive “challenge,” inspired by the social media app TikTok. During the “Kool-Aid Man” challenge, the social media users have broken down fences by kicking them down or colliding into them, like the style of the Kool-Aid Man in previous commercials. The police department, in a post on Facebook, encouraged parents to speak to their children about the consequences of destroying private property. “Recently teenagers have been participating in the tik tok challenge “fencing”. As you can see they are breaking the fencing by running into them or kicking them down. As thanksgiving break begins, parents please council your children on why fencing is not a trend to hop on. Thank you!” the department wrote on Facebook. This is not the first time the social media app has caused controversy and inspired destructive tendencies in the app’s users. Previously, a school district in Tennessee sent a letter to all parents in order to address similar “challenges” on the popular video app. The apparent “challenges,” which...

    MTV/Instagram Johnny Bananas Johnny Bananas Devenanzio has had a lot to say about the current season of “The Challenge” thanks to his new podcast, “Death, Taxes and Bananas,” and he recently had on a very polarizing figure in the “Challenge” world as a guest. Bananas was joined by the eliminated Josh Martinez, where he told him that his emotional personality was refreshing to see and said he hoped he would never change. Josh told Bananas that in his day-to-day life, he’s a very relaxed and chill person but on the show, he gets very emotionally invested and opened up about the dark side of filming the reality show. He told the seven-time champ he wished he could be more like CT Tamburello or Bananas. You guys are able to detach and not get as invested. Every time I go into a season, it becomes my reality, my world and I’m in it and I can’t disconnect. That’s why all my emotions just overflow and it takes a toll on me.

    President Joe Biden issued a proclamation for Thanksgiving, noting Americans were grateful during the coronavirus pandemic. “Thanksgiving provides us with a time to reflect on our many blessings — from God, this Nation, and each other,” Biden wrote. “We are grateful for these blessings, even — and especially — during times of challenge.” Biden recalled George Washington declaring a day of Thanksgiving for his troops in the Revolutionary War, Abraham Lincoln celebrating Thanksgiving during the Civil War, and the Pilgrims celebrating Thanksgiving after their first hard year in America. The president noted that just like the pilgrims expressed gratitude to the Wampanoag American Indians for helping them through their first year, Americans should be grateful to those who helped them through the coronavirus pandemic. Biden specifically cited farmworkers and frontline workers for thanks, noting “many of whom are immigrants.” Hunter Biden, son of U.S. President Joe Biden is seen on the tarmac after stepping off Air Force One upon arrival at Nantucket Memorial Airport in Nantucket, Massachusetts on November 23, 2021.

    Cowboys fans were furious at Mike McCarthy for not challenging what looked to be a fumble on Raiders TE Darren Waller. Turns out he couldn’t. McCarthy is notoriously quick with his challenge flag, for better or worse. On Thanksgiving against the Las Vegas Raiders, however, McCarthy kept the flag in his pocket. Waller looked as though he fumbled in the first half. With the ball quickly moving out of play, one Cowboys defender flipped the ball to another in what would’ve been among the best defensive plays of the year. Backyard smarts by #Cowboys D .. but ruling on field incomplete pass .. pic.twitter.com/Knoh0tvCdi — fishsports (@fishsports) November 25, 2021 Upon further review, the Waller ‘fumble’ was ruled incomplete. McCarthy didn’t challenge the play, per Cowboys reporter Pat Doney, because he couldn’t. The officials already took a look at it. Clearing up any confusion — the referees reviewed the (eventual) non-fumble that Keanu Neal looked to save inbounds. The review concluded the WR did not have possession. So McCarthy could not challenge — it was already reviewed. — Pat...

    MTV The Challenge: Spies Lies and Allies Two cast members from “The Challenge” who have never appeared on a season together didn’t let that stop them as they clashed on social media this week. One of the last remaining rookies from “Spies, Lies and Allies,” Emanuel Neagu, called out Jemmye Carroll, who appeared on the first season of “All Stars” earlier this year and the “Real World” alum didn’t hesitate to clap back. The drama between the two started after Fessy Shafaat tweeted an idea he had for future seasons of “The Challenge,” suggesting, “What if @ChallengeMTV traveled around the United States for the next season and did live daily challenges and eliminations in stadiums and arenas so people could watch live and cheer on. could still record and throw the episodes put together on paramount plus or whatever too.” Jemmye replied to Fessy’s tweet, “Good luck filling those stadiums you speak of… *Rihanna voice*.” A screenshot of the exchange was shared to a “Challenge” gossip account and led to Emanuel calling out Jemmye.

    Share this: Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) Commissioner Peter A. Hatch announced that the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of New York dismissed Union Square Supply, Inc.’s lawsuit, which alleged that DCWP’s price gouging enforcement during the pandemic was unconstitutional. To quote the judge’s dismissal, “Union Square Supply’s conduct — charging steep prices for products such as face masks and hand sanitizer during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic — falls in the heartland of what the rule was intended to prohibit.” Union Square Supply had challenged the constitutionality of the city’s rule, which prohibits price gouging for any personal or household good or any service that is needed to prevent or limit the spread of or treat COVID-19, and the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings’ (OATH’s) decision in their case.

              more   COLUMBUS, Ohio – A national liberal organization challenged Ohio’s recently approved congressional redistricting maps in a lawsuit filed with the Ohio Supreme Court, contending the new “gerrymandered” maps violate redistricting reforms added to the Ohio Constitution in 2018. The National Redistricting Action Fund affiliate of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee said the map passed last week in the Ohio General Assembly “unduly favors the Ohio Republican Party” and minimizes the political power of Democrats, particularly minorities. In the November 22 lawsuit, NRAF Director of Litigation and Policy Marina Jenkins contends the new congressional districts violate both the letter and the spirit of the state’s 2018 reforms calling for bipartisan cooperation in the creation of congressional maps. “That Ohio’s new map, signed into law by (Ohio) Governor (Mike) DeWine on Saturday, is a partisan gerrymander in violation of the state constitution is quite clear,” Jenkins said in a news release. ” This map comes directly on the heels of an overwhelming statement of Ohio’s voters that they want fair redistricting – yet (the approved map) is even more gerrymandered...

    MTV The Challenge: Spies Lies and Allies There are only a few weeks left now on “The Challenge: Spies, Lies and Allies” and in last week’s episode, one competitor was eliminated despite having had a strong season socially and politically. Josh Martinez managed to avoid elimination all season and was a key member of the Emerald cell but he couldn’t avoid the Lair when Kyle Christie was voted in and called him down. The two had a close contest in “Burning Bridges” but Kyle had greater endurance and managed to build his bridge faster than Josh, sending the “Big Brother” winner packing. After his elimination, Josh said, “It was a roller coaster of a season for me but beyond blessed for the opportunity to compete on this show. To ones that show me support & love from the bottom of my heart thank you for the kindness. I’ll be back stronger.” Josh has been a divisive figure on “The Challenge” for several seasons now and is a competitor that many fans love to hate but some former cast...
    Democrats are turning against moderate Democrat Sen. Kyrsten Sinema in the 2024 primary, close to three-quarters expressing the desire to replace her with another Democrat, according to a Public Opinion Pulse (AZPOP) survey OH Predictive Insights (OHPI) released Monday. While the survey found Sinema’s favorability nearly split among all respondents, 42 percent viewing her favorably and 45 percent viewing her unfavorably, she tends to be more popular among Republicans than members of her own party, who seek to oust her. The Arizona senator has a net favorable view among Republicans, 45 percent to 42 percent, but her numbers with Democrats are in the negatives, as 42 percent view her favorably. Forty-seven percent of Democrats, however, view her unfavorably. Mike Noble, OHPI chief of research, warned that the waning popularity among Democrats “could prove fatal in 2024.” When asked whom they prefer — Sinema, a Republican, or a Democrat other than Sinema to serve as senator — just more than a quarter of Democrats, 26 percent, chose Sinema. The vast majority, 72 percent, chose a Democrat other than the incumbent. Overall, however, a...
    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Domantas Sabonis had 20 points and 10 rebounds, and the Indiana Pacers’ starters bounced back from being benched a night earlier to beat the New Orleans Pelicans 111-94 on Saturday night. Yanked by coach Rick Carlisle midway through the third quarter of loss at Charlotte, Indiana’s starters opened with 23 points in the first quarter for a 32-19 lead against the Pelicans. The one change to the starting lineup was shooting guard Justin Holiday, who scored 17 points with four 3-pointers. Point guard Malcolm Brogdon scored 16. Jonas Valanciunas had 19 points and 13 rebounds for the Pelicans. Naji Marshall scored 14 points and Brandon Ingram had 12. Carlisle was critical of his starters’ selfishness Friday. That’s why the coach stuck with reserves down the stretch at Charlotte, where a 25-point deficit was trimmed to three at the final buzzer. This night, the Pacers shared the ball with 20 assists to the Pelicans’ nine to build a 58-46 halftime lead. Indiana then broke it open with an 18-4 run in the third quarter. Sabonis was...

    Disproving what Ocasio-Cortez said in response to Carville, Maher said a "pertinent question" to ask is why the word "woke" went from a "rallying cry to a pejorative." "If the word only made you think of rational, deserved causes like teaching a less whitewashed version of American history, AOC would still want to own it," Maher said. "But it's a joke because it makes you think of people who wake up offended and take orders from Twitter. And their oversensitivity has grown tiresome." New Rule: Bill Maher the Messaging Czar | Real Time (HBO) www.youtube.com That's when Maher issued Ocasio-Cortez an invitation to appear on his show to discuss the issue, but predicted that will "never happen." "But that will probably never happen because Democrats don't go anywhere these days where they're not being pre-adored," Maher said. "And that's my last bit of advice to them: Go where the 'amen corner' isn't. Do Fox News. Be brave. Come here. Go everywhere," he continued. "Winning is about expanding the electorate."

    South Dakota lawmaker Steven Haugaard announced Wednesday he will mount a conservative primary challenge to Gov. Kristi Noem, who "bowed to the pressure of Big Business," Haugaard said. Haugaard said he's launching his "South Dakota First" primary challenge against Noem, who is seeking a second term in 2022, because she has "been beholden to special interests," an apparent swipe at the governor's "style and form" veto of a bill that would have banned transgender girls and women from participating in female sports leagues. At the time, members of the GOP decried the veto as "caving" to business interests. "I've watched with you as our rights, liberties, and freedoms as South Dakotans have come under assault by the extreme progressive left. Sadly, our own governor bowed to the pressure of Big Business behind closed doors," he said in a campaign announcement . SOUTH DAKOTA GOV. KRISTI NOEM ANNOUNCES REELECTION CAMPAIGN: 'STILL MORE TO DO' Haugaard specifically referenced the transgender issue in his press release, suggesting Noem was motivated by a desire to pursue higher office. ...
    All fifty Senate Republicans are launching a formal challenge to President Biden's vaccine requirement for private businesses, as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) order is being challenged in court.  Indiana Sen. Mike Braun leads his 49 GOP colleagues in filing a resolution of disapproval against Biden's order that all companies with over 100 employees must require vaccines or weekly Covid-19 testing.   The disapproval resolution is guaranteed a floor vote, which Braun says he will set for early December. The resolution is filibuster-proof, meaning it needs only pass by a simple majority. If one Democrat signs on, the resolution would then need to be approved by the House.  Indiana Sen.
