    The Kansas City Chiefs were unsure if running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire would be able to play Sunday night after battling a non-COVID illness.  One thing that has been holding the Kansas City Chiefs back this season is injuries. Kansas City has been missing various pieces of both its offense and defense at different points in the season, including running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire. The second-year back suffered a knee injury back in Week 5 that has forced him to miss most of the Chiefs season so far. Edwards-Helaire missed Friday’s practice with what the team called an illness and others have deemed a stomach bug that is making the rounds in the Chiefs locker room. The illness was clarified as not being COVID-related, which meant as long as Edwards-Helaire felt right on Sunday night there wasn’t any protocol from the league that would cause him to miss the game. And right is exactly how the Chiefs running back sounds. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Chiefs not only got Edwards-Helaire back for a weekend walk-through but are expected to have...
    The Seahawks are wasting no time getting Adrian Peterson involved, elevating him from the practice squad for Sunday’s game against the 49ers, per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. The 36-year-old running back was signed to Seattle’s practice squad on Wednesday. Peterson played in three games with the Titans this season but never got into a rhythm.

McCrary activated… FEED THE BEAST pic.twitter.com/ZEuP8w6sNv — RavensFlock20 (@Bateman_Szn12) December 4, 2021 McCrary signed with the Ravens in May after going undrafted in the 2021 NFL Draft out of Saginaw Valley State, where he rushed for 1,060 yards and averaged 6.3 yards per carry during his final season. He showed plenty of promise in the preseason, leading the Ravens with 163 yards on 42 carries, but couldn’t win a roster spot ahead of fan favorite Ty’Son Williams, despite a season-ending injury to J.K. Dobbins. As a result, McCrary was waived by the Ravens during final roster cuts on August 31 and was quickly claimed by the Denver Broncos. But he never saw the field in Denver and eventually returned to Baltimore on September 25 shortly after being cut by the Broncos. His...
    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Ailing running back Melvin Gordon III was unable to practice Saturday and was ruled out for the Denver Broncos’ Sunday night showdown at Kansas City with the AFC West lead on the line. That means rookie running back Javonte Williams will get his first career start when the Broncos (6-5) face the Chiefs (7-4) with a chance to move atop the division. Gordon, the Broncos’ leading touchdown scorer, is dealing with shoulder and hip injuries that prevented him from practicing all week Coach Vic Fangio said during the week that if Gordon couldn’t play, Williams would get the bulk of the carries against the Chiefs with veteran running back Mike Boone also in the mix. On Saturday, the Broncos promoted running back Damarea Crockett from their practice squad and waived wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland. Crockett is a first-year pro from Missouri who has bounced between Denver’s practice and active roster. He has appeared in eight games with the Broncos this season, totaling 130 snaps on special teams. Gordon has five TD runs and two TD...
    Georgia football star running back James Cook draws comparisons to Dalvin Cook of the Minnesota Vikings, and for good reason. With James Cook balling out for the Georgia football team in the 2021 SEC Championship, people are wondering if he is related to Minnesota Vikings star Dalvin Cook. Though they play the same position, Cook is a very common surname in the United States of America. While this Cook is a prominent piece of the Georgia backfield, the one who now plays professionally in the NFL first made a name for himself at Florida State. So with all eyes on the 2021 SEC Championship game between Georgia and Alabama, are the Cooks actually related? Yes, James Cook is Dalvin Cook’s younger brother, as they both grew up in Miami, Florida.Is Georgia RB James Cook related to Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook?The older Cook brother had a more accomplished individual career in college at Florida State. He was a two-time All-American running back playing for Jimbo Fisher’s Seminoles in Tallahassee. Cook decided to forego his senior year at Florida State to enter the...
    Oklahoma State football head coach Mike Gundy has ruled out running back Jaylen Warren for the rest of the Big 12 Championship game with an ankle injury. Down big at halftime to the Baylor Bears, Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy said running back Jaylen Warren will not return for the game. Warren suffered an ankle injury in the first half. The Cowboys struggled offensively vs. Baylor. While many of the issues for the Pokes were self-inflicted, it may be difficult for them to get back in this thing with their star running back down for the count.

Dr. Mehmet Oz, better known as the star of TV's "Dr. Oz," announced on Nov. 30 that he's running for Senate in Pennsylvania as a Republican. "During the pandemic, I learned that when you mix politics and medicine, you get politics instead of solutions. That's why I am running for the U.S. Senate: to help fix the problems and to help us heal," he wrote in an op-ed published in the conservative Washington Examiner.

    An avid Trump supporter and former member of the Ku Klux Klan who was previously jailed for beating a Black man is now a Republican candidate for public office in Georgia. Described as an "ardent" supporter of former President Donald Trump, Chester Doles has reportedly filed paperwork in hopes of claiming a spot on the Lumpkin County, Ga., Board of Commissioners in 2022, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Doles, also a former member of the neo-Nazi National Alliance, recently began raising awareness about his run for office when he appeared in the Gold Rush parade in Dahlonega, Ga. While Doles may ultimately have the support of those who align with his belief systems, the far-right candidate's run for office is raising red flags due to his checkered past and continued communications with far-right extremists. Per The AJC, "Doles and a fellow Klansman were convicted in 1993 on federal charges related to the beating of a Black man in Maryland. Doles was sentenced to seven years in prison and served four. In 2003, Doles, then an activist with the...
    Getty The Seahawks will debut Adrian Peterson versus the Niners. The Seattle Seahawks have made a final decision on running back Adrian Peterson’s status versus the San Francisco 49ers. Just days after he was signed to the team’s practice squad, the 36-year-old running back will suit up versus the Niners on Sunday, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. “The Seahawks will be activating Adrian Peterson off the practice squad for Sunday’s game against the 49ers, per source,” says Fowler. “Wasting little time putting him to work.” Peterson was signed on Wednesday, December 1. The urgency to move Peterson into the lineup shows not only how the Seahawks really are in “win-now” mode — but how decimated their running back corps is. Starting running back Chris Carson has been sidelined since Week 5 due to a neck injury and is now out for the season. Alex Collins has stepped in as the starting back in his absence and has struggled drastically. The 27-year-old has rushed 101 times for 395 yards on just 3.9 yards per carry. The Seahawks rank 25th...
    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...
    MINNEAPOLS (WCCO) — Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen revealed in an Instagram post Friday that he as been struggling with bipolar disorder.

    House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said he will “absolutely” be running in the 2022 midterm elections, denying growing reports and speculation of the longtime Democrat getting ready to retire. Nadler “rejected” the rumors of him retiring, as well as calling it “crap,”according to Manu Raju — an infamous congressional reporter who usually patrols the halls of Congress stalking Republicans and other members. Nadler said he would “absolutely” run in the midterms. If the congressman truly did retire today, he would be the twentieth Democrat to announce retirement and the fourth committee chairman. As he is a close confidant to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) — voting with her 99 percent of the time — and has yet to make an official statement that he is running, Nadler may be waiting longer to see what happens with the rest of his party. There has also been speculation about Pelosi calling it quits on the House, instead of having to possibly work in the minority if the Democrats lose their slim majority. There was a report in November from the New York Post according to “insiders” that...

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Rookie running back Javonte Williams will get his first start Sunday night at Kansas City if Melvin Gordon III can’t play. Gordon didn’t practice all week because of hip and shoulder injuries and was listed as doubtful Friday. Coach Vic Fangio doesn’t expect Gordon to participate in Saturday’s walkthrough, either. “We’ll see. It’s doubtful, but that’s why we didn’t list him as ‘out’ because if he makes a turn he can play,” Fangio said. If Gordon is out, Williams will get the bulk of the workload with veteran running back Mike Boone also getting some work, Fangio said. Despite a pair of fumbles, Gordon has rushed for 605 yards and five touchdowns to go with 22 receptions for 166 yards and two TDs. Williams, a second-round pick out of North Carolina, has rushed for 568 yards and two touchdowns on 117 carries with 27 receptions for 193 yards and a TD. Williams led the nation in missed tackles last season and the 42 missed tackles he’s forced his rookie year are second in the NFL to...
    Getty Adrian Peterson could realistically play against the 49ers. The Seattle Seahawks added another player to the offense on December 1 by signing Adrian Peterson to the practice squad. The team has not added the 2012 NFL MVP to the active roster, but Pete Carroll has set the stage for Peterson to make his debut in the blue and wolf grey uniform. The Seahawks head coach made the comments during his media availability on Friday, December 3. He explained that the team has to figure out which running backs are ok by Sunday due to Travis Homer (calf), Alex Collins (abdomen), and Rashaad Penny (hamstring) all dealing with injuries. He then acknowledged that it’s realistic that Peterson plays against the 49ers. “With three guys banged up at the spot — we’ll see how it goes on the weekend here — but he had a really productive week for us, and it was really fun having him here,” Carroll said about Peterson on December 3. Carroll added that it is realistic that Peterson suits up and plays in the...
    TOWSON, Md. (WJZ) – There are several key races to watch as political candidates look to fill vacancies in Maryland’s state government, including the campaign to become the next attorney general. That race is already heating up as two candidates with name recognition square off in the Democratic primary, former Maryland First Lady Katie Curran O’Malley and her husband’s former running mate, U.S. Rep. Anthony Brown.

    By KEVIN FREKING and LISA MASCARO WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden on Friday signed into law the stopgap spending bill that will keep the federal government running through Feb. 18, after congressional leaders defused a partisan standoff over federal vaccine mandates. The White House released a statement noting the bill signing and thanking congressional leaders for their work. Earlier in the day, Biden said it was worth praising bipartisanship, but “funding the government isn’t a great achievement, it’s the bare minimum of what needs to get done.” Both chambers of Congress passed the legislation Thursday avoiding a short-term shutdown of the government into the weekend. The bill keeps the federal government running for 11 more weeks, generally at current spending levels, while adding $7 billion to aid Afghanistan evacuees. “I am glad that in the end, cooler heads prevailed. The government will stay open and I thank the members of this chamber for walking us back from the brink of an avoidable, needless and costly shutdown,” said Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. The Senate approved the measure by...
    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...

With New York’s top job up for grabs after Andrew Cuomo’s resignation, state elections coming up next year are shaping up as a high-stakes round of musical chairs — and attorney general is a coveted seat. When Cuomo stepped down as governor, it created a power vacuum not seen in New York since Eliot Spitzer’s resignation from the same job in 2008. After Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul replaced Cuomo, Letitia James, current attorney general, announced she would run for governor. And now the AG race is as crowded as the campaign to fill the Executive Mansion.
    A fourth defendant admitted Friday that he was part of a ring that sold guns trafficked from Florida to the Jersey Shore to buyers working for the FBO. Enrique Quijada, 24, of Freehold told a federal judge in Trenton via videoconference on Friday that he worked with ringleader Manuel “Chino” Espinosa-Ozoria of Bartow, FL his brother, Waldin “Manin” Espinosa-Ozoria of Freehold and two others. The crew sold handguns and a semi-automatic rifle, among other weapons, to what turned out to be FBI operatives in and around Monmouth and Ocean counties, Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael A. Honig said. Defendant Jacquelyn DeJesus, also of Bartow, filled the role of straw purchaser, buying the guns for Manuel Espinosa-Ozoria in Florida, Honig said. They both then brought the weapons to Monmouth County, where Quijada and others sold them to “individuals working at the direction and supervision of the FBI,” the U.S. attorney said. Quijada – also known as “El Enano 13” and “Kike” -- also sold drugs to the cooperators, she said. Waldin Espinosa-Ozoria, DeJesus and Javier Rodriguez-Valpais took guilty pleas to conspiring to...

    CERES (CBS13) — A Ceres man has pleaded guilty to running an operation that bred birds for cockfighting, prosecutors announced on Friday.

    Chester Doles interview with WXIA-TV Atlanta, Georgia, 2020. If you had any doubts about the direction of the Republican Party—and if you’re reading this it’s likely you don’t—look no further than Chester Doles, a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan and leader of neo-Nazi National Alliance, who filed his paperwork last month to run for office in 2022.  Doles, 61, is running for a seat on the Lumpkin County Board of Commissioners, located in Dahlonega, Georgia, the 9th District, represented by Andrew Clyde, a Republican—of course. You may remember Doles as the man who cozied up to Republican Georgia Senate candidate Kelly Loeffler, even posing for photos with her. She repeatedly said she didn’t know who he was, but Doles claimed to have served as her security. Loeffler lost to Democratic challenger Raphael Warnock. The county Doles is running in is represented by the loathsome, racist, Islamaphobic QAnon nutter Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. She obviously wouldn’t be bothered by the fact that Doles served time for beating a Black man in 1993, according to The Baltimore Sun. He was busted again in 2003 on a federal firearms charge,...
    (CNN)Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is proposing the reestablishment of a civilian military force that reports to him rather than to President Joe Biden through the Pentagon, a move clearly aimed at burnishing his credentials and persona for a future presidential run. In pitching the idea of a defense force separate from the national guard, which has its roots in World War II and many other states have, DeSantis said it would give him "the flexibility and the ability needed to respond to events in our state in the most effective way possible."Which, well, ok. But what's really going on here is about more than just DeSantis wanting to have people at his disposal if and when disaster strikes.

    The Jets hope their terrible experience on Thursday Night Football last month benefits them against the Eagles on Sunday. In a 45-30 loss to the Colts, the Jets allowed Indy to run wild to a tune of 260 yards. The running backs were barely getting their jersey dirty as they ran for seven yards per carry before contact. Now the Jets get a do-over. Well kind of. Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni was the offensive coordinator in Indianapolis from 2018-2020 under Frank Reich, and Reich was the offensive coordinator in Philly from 2016-17. Jets defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich alerted his defense about the coaching tree on Wednesday to educate them of what to expect. “The first meeting that we had, it was, ‘Fellas, this coaching family comes from Indianapolis.’ They’re sharing gameplan ideas,” Ulbrich said. “They’re sharing what was successful, and then ultimately, they’re going to go back and watch the tape and see what worked.” The Eagles are averaging 158 yards rushing per game, using the same running scheme as the Colts. They’ve been...
    Getty The Seahawks signed Adrian Peterson because they're in "win-now" mode. The Seattle Seahawks made headlines when they signed 36-year-old running back Adrian Peterson on Wednesday, December 1. The Seahawks announced the move shortly after it happened, signing the former NFL MVP to the practice squad. However, it shouldn’t take long before Peterson is moved up to the active roster. As far as why Seattle signed the 15-year veteran when they’re at a record of 3-8, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll believes Peterson can help the team win as they’re in “win-now” mode, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. “[Carroll]’s response was along the same lines as ‘He helps us win now’”, Rapoport said. “That is the mode that the Seahawks are in, in signing Adrian Peterson to come in and give their running game a little bit of a jolt. Obviously they’ve lost Chris Carson to a season-ending neck injury and they’ve really struggled to run the ball a little bit.” In fact, Peterson could debut for the Seahawks as early as this week when they take...

    Sen. Rick Scott of Florida Sen. Rick Scott of Florida wanted to talk about anything but abortion when he was asked whether the issue would motivate GOP voters in next year's midterms. “They’re talking about inflation. They’re talking about the border. They’re talking about the Afghanistan debacle. They’re talking about parental involvement in education,” Scott, the Senate GOP campaign chief, told the Washington Post. “If you look at the polls and what people are caring about, that’s what they’re focused on.” Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who is facing a challenge next year from Democratic Rep. Val Demings, downplayed the matter in his reelection bid. “It’s never been a political issue to me,” he said, noting he errs on the side of life. “So that’s been my position pretty consistently, and there’s no mystery about it.” Nothing to see here, said Rubio, as Demings cued up tweets vowing to "fight back against assaults on reproductive rights."

Mandatory Credit: Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports Tony Pollard has proven to be a potential star with the Cowboys but, if Dallas sticks with Ezekiel Elliott, where could they trade the young RB? It certainly appears that the Dallas Cowboys are heading towards a crossroads with their running back room. Ezekiel Elliott remains under contract for quite a while and, frankly, it’s not going to be anytime soon that they can get out of that deal with the way it’s structured. But meanwhile, Tony Pollard has emerged as a dynamic, dangerous playmaker. Considering that Pollard is younger, has less mileage on the tires, and is seemingly just better right now — although, admittedly, Elliott has unwisely been playing through injury for the past few weeks — it would make sense if the Cowboys pivoted to Pollard as the lead back. But if Jerry Jones and the organization wants to remain committed to Elliott, then they would be almost foolish to let a player with Pollard’s talent and intrigue waste away as a backup when he could offer...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — When local candidate Sean Parnell dropped out of the race for U.S. Senate last week, it seemed to open the field to many other candidates. One of those candidates was Dr. Mehmet Oz, who announced on Tuesday. READ MORE: PennDOT Asking For Public Input Ahead Of Bridge Work In Westmoreland CountyWhen Republican U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey announced he was retiring at the end of next year, Republican insiders knew the battle to replace him would be long, contentious and expensive. What was not predicted was how many newcomers to politics and, frankly, recent residents of other states would seek to represent Pennsylvania. There’s already been lots of talk about Oz, who was born in Ohio, raised in Delaware and lived in New Jersey for most of his adult life until he recently rented a home near his in-laws in the Philadelphia suburbs. But Oz is not alone. Long-time Californian Carla Sands, President Donald Trump’s ambassador to Denmark — she gave $250,000 to the Trump campaign — has returned to Pennsylvania where she was born and grew up...
    SANTA CLARA (CBS SF/AP) — Elijah Mitchell has been one of the NFL’s biggest surprises this season. Whether it’s going from overlooked sixth-round project out of Louisiana-Lafayette into one of the league’s productive backs as a rookie, or his knack on nearly every run for the San Francisco 49ers to churn out a couple of extra yards, Mitchell exceeds expectations.

Then people in the box tell me it’s second-and-6. I don’t totally believe him because I saw that he was going down and I don’t realize that he fell forward and got 4 yards. When it’s like that, which he does all the time now, you keep going, it helps you keep doing it.” Mitchell has been consistently doing that all...
    It’s that time of year again, where you can hear those bells ringing for the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign. Locally, there are those volunteer stations in Scioto County for the needs of this county. Speaking with Dan Simco, Major Co-commanding Officer of the Salvation Army, he said they have red kettles at both Kroger locations, Rural King, Walmart, Deemer’s, and Minford IGA. The Red Kettle campaign will continue from now through December 24. Simco also wanted to remind people that whether they donate at the kettle locations or virtually, all money will be used locally, even if you used the codes that are posted at each Red Kettle station. “Our regional headquarters is offering a matching grant up to $10,000.00 for each dollar we raise through our virtual red kettle,” Simco said. “At each of our stations, we have a QR code that is laminated and posted with the red kettle. In case someone doesn’t want to touch anything, they can take a photo from a distance and this code will take them to a secure website. Plus, he...
    Elon Musk has suggested that there should be a ban on politicians running for office over the age of 70, in a pointed barb at some of the nation's top leaders. Musk, who turned 50 this June, tweeted on Thursday: 'Let's set an age limit after which you can't run for political office, perhaps a number just below 70 …' The infamous provocateur, who with a $300 billion fortune is considered the richest man in history, did not elaborate on who he thought was too old. Joe Biden, at 79, is the oldest president in history and is frequently mocked on Fox News for his age. Donald Trump, now 75, is said to be considering a 2024 run: he would be 78 on election day - a year older than Biden when he was elected president. Elon Musk, 50, tweeted on Thursday that he believes there should be an age limit on running for office Musk may well have been attacking Bernie Sanders, the 80-year-old Vermont senator with whom he has frequently disagreed on tax policy.

    Dr. Kevin Baumlin, who is also running for Senate in Pennsylvania, said Oz's past comments on COVID-19 are 'offensive and borderline malpractice.' Dr. Mehmet Oz — the cardiothoracic surgeon and talk show host — announced this week that he's officially running for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania as a Republican. Oz joins a crowded race to fill the open seat currently held by Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), who is set to retire next year. In the past, Oz promoted the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19, advocated for the reopening of schools in the midst of the pandemic, and downplayed the human cost of the virus, which has claimed the lives of more than 780,000 Americans. In Oz's first campaign ad, he argues that Washington politicians got the coronavirus response "wrong," and claimed that they "took away our freedoms without making us safer." Running through his biography, Oz notes his television program "took on the medical establishment to argue against costly drugs and skyrocketing medical bills." With unmatched name recognition and funding,...
              more   Republican Rich McCormick, who in 2020 lost Georgia’s Seventh Congressional District race to Representative Carolyn Bourdeaux (D-GA-07), announced Tuesday he’s running again — but this time for the state’s Sixth Congressional District. McCormick told The Georgia Star News that the newly redrawn Seventh District is now a 65 percent Democrat stronghold. He said any Republican would have a difficult time competing there. “There is nobody that has a claim to the Sixth [District] any more than I do,” McCormick said. “I am the only one who has ever run for Congress that is running in that race right now, and a lot of people who will be voting in that race have already voted for me once.” Republican Jake Evans announced his candidacy for the Sixth District earlier this year. Evans, when asked, downplayed his new competition. “The only Congressional candidate in the nation to lose a Republican incumbent seat in 2020 just flipped into the CD6 race,” Evans told The Star News via text. “I guess he also concluded he couldn’t win the district he ran for...
              more   Patrick Witt, a Republican running for Georgia’s 10th Congressional District, this week said certain members of the GOP should blame themselves for what occurred in the state on November 3, 2020. Witt, according to his Twitter profile, was a member of former President Donald Trump’s post-election legal team. He also served as a senior official in the Trump administration. “We really have to look back over the last two decades at the disastrous decisions made by Georgia Republicans which led us up to that point. In 2005, shortly after Republicans had taken control of the state house, the state senate, and the governor’s mansion — for the first time in our state’s history — one of the first measures that they passed was a bill allowing for no-excuse absentee balloting without having to show your voter ID,” Witt said in a video he uploaded Monday to his Twitter account. “That’s right. Georgia Republicans in both chambers, including then-State Senator Brian Kemp, thought that it would be a good idea to enshrine into law a bill that allowed any voter...
    Stephen Colbert kicked off his run of jokes about Dr. Mehmet Oz’s big campaign announcement on Tuesday with a bit of a softball: “Turns out, running for Senate is the one weird trick to reduce belly fat.” It thankfully got harsher from there. “Now, this is Dr. Oz’s first time running for office,” the Late Show host said of the TV doctor’s announcement that he will be running as a Republican for the open seat being vacated by Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA). “So he’s staying humble with his promises.” As an example, he pointed to a line from Oz’s campaign website that promises he will “help re-light the ‘divine spark’ inside every American.” “I’d settle for cheaper gas,” Colbert replied, “but sure, Doc, check the pilot light on my ‘divine spark,’ just like they taught you at med school.” Before he entered the political sphere, the host noted that Oz had a “lucrative career as a liar, peddling questionable health advice on TV” before highlighting some of his most egregiously irresponsible claims, from bogus weight-loss products to repeatedly pushing...

    Getty The Seahawks have their work cut out for them to save their season. The Seattle Seahawks now have two open roster spots on the team’s practice squad after announcing the release of wide receiver Phillip Dorsett and running back B.J. Emmons. Dorsett is the most notable move as the wideout was expected to compete to be the team’s third wide receiver during the 2020 season. Unfortunately, Dorsett had a foot injury that later required surgery which sidelined him for the entire season. During his end-of-season press conference, head coach Pete Carroll emphasized that the team planned to bring back Dorsett for 2021, but the receiver signed with the Jaguars over the offseason. Dorsett’s tenure with the Jaguars was short-lived after he was released in September notching just one appearance. The Seahawks signed Dorsett to the team’s practice squad on October 1st and his second stint in Seattle lasted less than two months. Dorsett only played in two contests and his last appearance came in Week 6 where the receiver notched one catch for three yards,...

              more   Dr. Mehmet Oz, the famous television health talk-show host, has entered the 2022 Republican U.S. Senate primary in Pennsylvania.  In an announcement on his website, Oz touted foremost his background as a heart surgeon and blasted elite mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic.  “In our time of need, we want to be surrounded by people of action more than armchair intellectuals, because a great surgeon never censors ideas and never shuts off the light that shines on our wounds, which is what happened while our nation battled the pandemic,” Oz insisted. “Witnessing our nation’s failings of COVID, I learned that when you mix politics and medicine, you get politics instead of solutions. That’s why I am running for United States Senate—to help fix the problems and to help us all heal.” In particular, he condemned the heavy-handedness of the lockdowns and distancing rules imposed by government in response to the viral outbreak. He also lamented constraints enjoined on doctors regarding the prescription of treatments for the coronavirus, precluding him from funding clinical trials to utilize the controversial drug hydroxychloroquine.  A part-time Columbia...
    Doctor Mehmet Oz, who is known for his television shows, has officially launched his campaign for US Senate. The announcement about Oz entering the already crowded field of candidates was made via Twitter on Tuesday afternoon. The announcement reads: "I’m running for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania because America needs a Conservative Republican to cure what’s wrong with Washington. I’m a world-class surgeon, fighter, and health care advocate stepping forward to cure our country’s ills. Watch my announcement video now!" Oz's team had previously hinted that he might consider running for senate, as reported by TMZ. Oz is running as a Republican for the seat soon to be vacated by Pat Toomey. The announce comes just over a week after former-President Trump backed Sean Parnell withdrew from the race.
    U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert in yet another video has been captured falsely suggesting Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is a terrorist. It is the third video to date – including one she released Monday – in which the Republican pro-gun activist from Colorado disparages Omar as a terrorist or terrorist sympathizer. “Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado suggested to a crowd in September that Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, whom she called ‘black-hearted’ and ‘evil,’ was a terrorist,” CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski reports. “It’s another instance in which Boebert suggested Omar, who is Muslim and wears a hijab, was a terrorist.” This newly-found video, CNN explains, was “made in New York at a September Staten Island Conservative Party dinner,” and “posted on Facebook that month by an attendee running for borough president.” NEW: Another video shows Lauren Boebert suggesting Ilhan Omar was a terrorist at an event in September. \n\n"I said, well, lookey there, it's the Jihad Squad...She doesn't have a backpack, she wasn't dropping it and running so we're good," Boebert said.\n\nhttps://www.cnn.com/2021/11/30/politics/lauren-boebert-ilhan-omar-video-comments/index.html\u00a0\u2026pic.twitter.com/yWcArnhFe9 — andrew kaczynski (@andrew kaczynski) 1638294477 Like the...
