    Legend has it a humanoid creature covered in fur inhabits the forested areas along the west coast of the northern US and although stories of this mythical monster have been told since the 1800s, no one has been able to prove its existence. The closest and most compelling evidence of Bigfoot was captured in 1967, when Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson shot footage of a furry figure walking through Bluff Creek in Northern California. The grainy, one-minute clip has sparked many investigations into its authenticity and DailyMail.com received an early look of the History Channel’s ‘The Proof is Out There’ that dissects the famous film with the hopes of solving the mystery – was the figure someone in a suit or really Bigfoot? ‘The Proof is Out There’ episode about Bigfoot will run tonight at 10pm ET. The show has brought on a team of experts to use the latest and greatest technology for this mission, including artificial intelligence and computer vision algorithms. ‘We are trying to figure out the origins of man, the big bang, evolution and if God...
    After decades of longing for the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the Roe v. Wade ruling of 1973, anti-abortion zealots may finally get their wish. The High Court, on December 1, began hearing oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization — a case that is examining the constitutionality of a highly restrictive anti-abortion law in Mississippi. If the Court upholds the Mississippi law, overturns Roe and assaults abortion rights, there is every reason to believe that gay rights won’t be far behind. That is not to say that Dobbs deals with gay rights per se. Dobbs is about abortion specifically, and defenders of the Mississippi law are arguing that the Roe decision was an attack on states’ rights — that the state government in Mississippi, not the federal government, should be able to decide how it governs and regulates abortion. But legal experts, including Laurence Tribe, have pointed out that if the High Court doesn’t respect abortion as a national right, it won’t respect gay liberties as a national right either. Although Democrats have won the popular vote...
    Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned lawmakers Tuesday that the U.S. could suffer a 'deep recession' if they don't raise the debt ceiling by December 15.   'I cannot overstate how critical it is that Congress address this issue,' she urged the Senate Banking Committee. 'America must pay its bills on time and in full. If we do not, we will eviscerate our current recovery.'  Yellen said that in a 'matter of days' the majority of Americans would suffer financially if Congress didn't lift or suspend the debt ceiling.  Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned lawmakers Tuesday that the U.S. could suffer a 'deep recession' if they don't raise the debt ceiling by December 15 'As critical payments like social security checks and military paychecks would not reach their bank accounts and that would likely be followed by a deep recession,' Yellen predicted.    Earlier this month, Yellen told Congressional leaders that the federal government had more time than her initial estimate on when it would default on its debt.  Yellen had originally estimated the country wouldn't be able to pay its bills after December...
    Secretary of State Antony Blinken warned Russia against taking any 'escalatory actions' with Ukraine, threatening 'serious consequences' for doing so.  His remarks, made at a joint press conference with Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkēvičs in Riga, come amid growing concerns Russia could mount another invasion of Ukraine as they build up forces along the border.  Concerns about the Russian buildup will be discussed at meetings of NATO ministers over Tuesday and Wednesday.  'Its increasingly belligerent rhetoric, its recent buildup of forces. Its unusual troop movements along Ukraine's border,' Blinken said, adding 'I'll have a lot more to say about that tomorrow after I've had a chance to consult with our allies in the NATO meetings that started this afternoon.'  He continued: 'For now, let me just reiterate that any escalatory actions by Russia would be of great concern to the United States as they would to Latvia and any renewed aggression can trigger serious consequences.'  NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg called Moscow's buildup on the border 'unprovoked and unexplained.'  'Any future Russian aggression against Ukraine would come at a high price...
    On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Velshi,” Rep. Troy Carter (D-LA) argued that if the races in the Ahmaud Arbery case were reversed, “there wouldn’t have even been media about it. There would have been a conviction in the media and a conviction in the court and it probably would not have had the level of deliberation.” Carter said, “[T]he reality is, if you had reversed the roles and that had been three African Americans chasing a white gentleman in a neighborhood and shot him because they thought he was doing something, even though he was unarmed, had no items that suggested that he’d stolen something, there wouldn’t have even been media about it. There would have been a conviction in the media and a conviction in the court and it probably would not have had the level of deliberation. Therein lies the real issue of why the racism and criminal justice reform needs to be fixed. There’s no question — and when I say outlandish, outlandish because this should have been something that was very easy. Yet, for many people, it...

Sign up for The Big Story newsletter to receive stories like this one in your inbox.Series: Unwatched A Louisiana Law Department That Polices Itself When sheriff’s deputies in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, pulled over Octavio Lopez for an expired inspection tag in 2018, they wrote on his traffic ticket that he is white. Lopez, who is from Nicaragua, is Hispanic and speaks only Spanish, said his wife. In fact, of the 167 tickets issued by deputies to drivers with the last name Lopez over a nearly six-year span, not one of the motorists was labeled as Hispanic, according to records provided by the Jefferson Parish clerk of court. The same was true of the 252 tickets issued to people with the last name of Rodriguez, 234 named Martinez, 223 with the last name Hernandez and 189 with the surname Garcia. This kind of misidentification is widespread — and not without harm. Across America, law enforcement agencies have been accused of targeting Hispanic drivers, failing to collect data on those traffic...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday defended President Joe Biden's decision to spend the Thanksgiving on Nantucket, saying food prices weren't that high and everyone should spend the holiday with loved ones. The president has come under fire for heading to the posh island off the coast of Massachusetts to spend the rest of the week at the home of billionaire Carlyle group co-founder David Rubenstein.  Biden ran for president as a symbol and representative of the middle class. The Biden family has been spending Thanksgiving on the island nearly every year since 1975, including when he was vice president. 'There are abundance of turkeys available. They're about $1 more for a 20 pound bird, which is a huge bird if you're feeding a very big family, and that's something that again, we've been working to make sure people have more money in their pockets to address,' she said at her daily White House press briefing. White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended President Joe Biden's decision to spend the Thanksgiving on Nantucket, saying foor prices weren't that high...
    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California accused Democrats of operating on a double-standard in an impassioned speech on the House floor Wednesday. Lawmakers in the lower chamber voted to censure GOP Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona over a cartoon video he tweeted depicting himself killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with a sword and then going to attack President Joe Biden.  Gosar was stripped of his committee assignments in a 223-207 vote - and McCarthy strongly hinted that a handful of Democrats will see the same fate.  In his speech ahead of the vote this afternoon McCarthy listed off five outspoken Democrats - including Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Reps. Maxine Waters and Adam Schiff of California - whose committee assignments could be on the chopping block if his party takes back the House in 2022. McCarthy said of Democrats' tenure in the majority, 'What they have started cannot easily be undone. Their actions today and the past have forever changed the way the House operates.' 'It means that the minority rights that have served this body as well are the...

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who was known for crazy anti-vaccine views even before the pandemic, downplayed covid-19 in an interview Monday with Tucker Carlson. For years Kennedy has pushed the flat-out false assertion that vaccines can cause autism, and he has fear-mongered about vaccines on many occasions. In 2019 several of his family members penned an op-ed calling out his dangerous misinformation. On Monday night Carlson queued up a clip of his interview with Kennedy by describing him to viewers as “one of the smartest and most articulate chroniclers of the erosion of our civil liberties.” They spoke for Carlson’s Fox Nation series Tucker Carlson Today, where Kennedy spread nonsense about the covid-19 vaccines. In comments appearing to reference Dr. Anthony Fauci, Kennedy said, “It was just a doctor who has never treated a covid patient saying one week masks don’t work and a month later, everybody putting them on, and not citing one study to justify that change.” He claimed that last year the U.S. “literally got rid of every amendment of the Constitution except the Second Amendment.” And...
    During a CNN discussion Thursday of Kyle Rittenhouse’s headline-grabbing murder trial, former prosecutor Bob Bianchi argued that “if there is a conviction here, I am certain it will be reversed.” As the trial dominated cable news yesterday, pundits and legal analysts combed through the various arguments, testimonies, and heated exchanges in the courtroom with many focusing on the prosecution’s stumbles, tensions with the judge, and what Bianchi sees as a potentially fatal due process violation. “You may be seeing the prosecutor, his desperate attempts yesterday, by the way, doing stuff with the 5th Amendment that’s mind-blowing cause for reversal of this case if there is even a conviction,” said Bianchi on CNN’s Newsroom. Bianchi then referred to a bombastic exchange during the trial Wednesday in which Judge Bruce Schroeder reprimanded the prosecutor, Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger, for what he called a “grave constitutional violation.” Schroeder took issue with what he saw as Binger insinuating that Rittenhouse’s silence after being arrested implied guilt — despite “the right to remain silent” being a constitutionally protected part of due process. Bianchi explained...
    Long-time radio host and media personality Howard Stern has called for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers to be kicked out of the NFL after he revealed that he had not been vaccinated against COVID-19, despite earlier saying he was 'immunized'. During a rant on his morning radio show, Stern, who admits he is not a football fan, said that 'if there was any decency in the world,' Rodgers would be shown the door.  'I was so worked up over the weekend about this f***ing Aaron Rodgers of the NFL,' Stern began.  Radio host Howard Stern has called for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers to be kicked out of the NFL after lying about his vaccination status 'I don't even know where to begin with that story. I mean this f---ing guy. I don't watch football, sorry I'm not a big fan, I know the guy is a real good football player, that's why they put up with his bulls**t,' Stern said.  'If there was decency in this world, you know, I would throw this guy out of the...
    20 excellent art documentaries The 10 Best Places To Buy a Vacation Home in 2021 Atlanta Falcons Swiss-Army-Knife option Cordarrelle Patterson has become a fantasy football icon during what has to be considered the best season, to date, of his NFL career. Per ESPN stats, Patterson has thus far accumulated a team-best 268 rushing yards and two touchdowns on the ground, 32 catches for 333 yards and a club-high five scores, and 267 yards on kickoff returns. He also recorded a pass attempt on Oct. 10.  © Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Cordarrelle Patterson is playing RB, WR and kick returner. Patterson recently told Kris Rhim of the club's website that his mother has inspired him to offer his services to the Falcons wherever they need him this fall.  "If my mom could go out there and work three jobs, I can go out there and play three positions," Patterson explained. "Why can't I do what she did for us? It's like a big motivation, and every time I'm on the field, I don't care where they put me; I'm...

    Sweeping through the doorway at Vogue's sleek Manhattan offices, Anna Wintour surveys the room with a practised, critical eye. There is a moment's deliberate pause, a flash of obvious distaste. 'Why,' she snaps, 'are there so many white people in the room?' It could so easily be parody. After all, the legendary 71-year-old Vogue editor – with her signature sleek bob and sunglasses – has many times found herself the subject of ruthless satire, most notably in the film, The Devil Wears Prada.

    Palace aides are drafting plans for the Duchess of Cornwall to take on a significantly greater role – and it is possible she could even be appointed to an elite group of senior Royals who can carry out duties on behalf of the Queen. Her Majesty’s decision to cancel all public engagements for at least the next fortnight, as she recovers from an unknown ailment, has raised concerns about a potential leadership gap at the head of the Royal Family if her illness persists or should the 95-year-old Monarch be incapacitated in the future. So far, the Queen has continued to carry out her duties as Head of State, despite having to ‘reluctantly’ cancel a number of high-profile engagements over the past few weeks.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — At the south end of Lincoln Park near the Chicago History Museum, you may have noticed a mausoleum with the name “Couch” carved at the top. The Couch tomb is the only visible remnant left over from the days when the south end of the picturesque park – where today we also find the Lincoln Park Zoo – was the original city cemetery. As the Encyclopedia of Chicago tells us, the cemetery opened around 1843 and ceased burials in 1866 – after which the park was developed and named for assassinated President Abraham Lincoln. READ MORE: Police Raid Three Locations Of Parlor Pizza RestaurantThe reason the cemetery was closed, Tony Szabelski of Chicago Hauntings Ghost Tours points out, had to do with poor sanitary conditions. Caskets were buried near marsh lands, and would wash ashore when the lake levels rose. The decomposed remains also contaminated drinking water – causing several cholera outbreaks. But the Couch tomb remains. It memorializes businessman Ira Couch, who was on vacation in Cuba in the winter of 1857 when he died. He...
    If you’re open to rural city life, you might be able to score cash and a pair of "on-demand" grandparents. Indiana officials in the city of Greensburg have teamed up with MakeMyMove.com to create a relocation program that’ll bring remote workers to the "Tree City." The collaboration is powered by the Greensburg/Decatur County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) and the online recruitment resource, a spokesperson for Mayor Joshua Marsh told Fox News. According to the EDC’s emailed statement, organizers of this economic program have put this incentive package together in hopes of attracting high-wage remote workers.  THIS CARIBBEAN ISLAND IS OFFERING YEAR-LONG VISAS FOR REMOTE WORKERS  Greensburg, Indiana is a rural city that's located 50 miles southeast of Indianapolis.

    Google rolled out a new safety feature on Wednesday that lets minors under 18 request images of themselves be removed from search results.  The tech giant launched a help page for such requests that not only lets minors request the removal of information, but also prevent information of themselves from appearing in Search and on a specific website - parents and guardians are also allowed to submit requests. However, there are circumstances in which a person’s request may not be granted – ‘the exception of case of compelling public interest or newsworthiness,’ Google shared in a statement. Users must also be 18 years old or younger for Google to approve the request, meaning if they are over the age they cannot apply to have images removed when they were a teenager. Google rolled out a new safety feature on Wednesday that lets minors under 18 request images of themselves be removed from search results Google first announced plans for the feature in August, adding it would be activated in the coming weeks. It comes as major online platforms have long...
    IT is no longer a matter of whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the competence to  manage an elite football club. We realised some time ago that he hasn’t. 1Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should resign after Man Utd's 5-0 defeat to Liverpool - if he isn't fired firstCredit: EPA Now, after the Red Devils were slashed to pieces by their most bitter rivals, on their own turf, it is a case of whether the Manchester United boss possesses the self-awareness — or the shame — to quit. Nobody tends to do the decent thing and resign any more — not in politics, in football, nor anywhere else in life. United’s board has been adamant it will not sack the Norwegian, yet there must surely come a time soon when Solskjaer can no longer find the brass neck to stand in his technical area any longer. Or else the Glazers and their men in blazers might allow a legendary former player to leave with a  semblance of dignity and a trotting-out of ‘mutual consent’. This was utterly brutal, utterly humiliating and utterly predictable,...
    Somewhere along the line I got the impression that humans were smart. You know, tool use and written communication and reduced fat Corn Nuts and all that. Unfortunately, just because Grandma can open a can of Chef Boyardee without throwing it against a big tree like an ape or Donald Trump might doesn't mean we're going to save our planet in time to secure a viable future for humanity. Of course, the solutions for combating climate change are available to us—in theory, anyway. That's because we do have many brave, smart people working on these things. But you have to take those solutions off the shelf and implement them, and that's when we start breaking drill bits trying to get to the gooey nougat center of Joe Manchin's head. The world is burning, but as long as the wildfires don't touch Manchin's scattered piles of coal cash, he's more than willing to let it burn. The West Virginia senator is defying his own constituents' wishes when it comes to his party's potentially transformative Build Back Better agenda, and one of...
    General Colin Powell had a 13-point rulebook for life. He showed them to me when we spent the day together a few years ago at the National War College in Washington DC, and they made a huge impression - mainly because I agreed with every single one of them. They're worth repeating again in full today as America mourns the loss – tragically, from complications due to Covid-19 - of perhaps the greatest president it never had: 1. It ain't as bad as you think. It will look better in the morning. 2. Get mad, then get over it. 3. Avoid having your ego so close to your position that, when your position falls, your ego goes with it. 4. It can be done! 5. Be careful what you choose, you may get it. 6. Don't let adverse facts stand in the way of a good decision. 7. You can't make someone else's choices. You shouldn't let someone else make yours. 8. Check small things. 9. Share credit. 10. Remain calm. Be kind. 11. Have a vision. Be demanding. 12....
    Chuck Schumer has suggested using sniffer dogs to replace people at airports if the fast-approaching deadline for COVID vaccinations for all staff causes a shortage of workers. The Senate Majority leader, who represents New York, told a press conference in Manhattan that he had a solution for Thanksgiving travel chaos.  About 40 per cent of TSA workers are currently at risk of being fired for refusing to get the coronavirus vaccine. Approximately 24,000 employees, including some airport screeners, have until November 22 - the Monday before Thanksgiving - to get the shot or risk being fired under President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate for all federal workers. But Schumer said he could avert chaos with the help of four-legged replacements for human staffers.  'If TSA lags in jabs, send in the dogs,' he said. 'There is no reason on God's green Earth why anyone — let alone a TSA agent — shouldn't have the vaccine. 'Now if the agency plans now with contingencies, including the deployment of the canine dog teams, wherever the vaccine rates are impacting staffing and security, travel headaches...

But Wilder's successful arbitration secured his shot at redemption, pitting the heavyweights against each other once more. A win for the American would see him reclaim the WBC...
    Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is warning Congress could plunge the nation into recession if it fails to raise the statutory debt ceiling by October 18th – and ruled out as a 'gimmick' the idea of minting a trillion dollar coin to avert a default. Yellen has previously identified the October date as the time when the nation would exhaust its extraordinary measures to avert a default on U.S. obligations, and stood by it in an interview on CNBC's 'Squawk Box.' 'I do regard Oct. 18 as a deadline. It would be catastrophic to not pay the government’s bills, for us to be in a position where we lacked the resources to pay the government’s bills,' she said. 'I fully expect it would cause a recession as well,' she said. 'It would be catastrophic to not pay the government’s bills,,' said Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, as she reaffirmed the government's extraordinary measures to avoid the debt ceiling would become exhausted on Oct. 18th Senate Republicans last week blocked a Democratic proposal to suspend the debt ceiling, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch...
    Stephanie Grisham said Tuesday there was a 'culture of abuse' in Donald Trump's White House, admitted she lied in TV interviews and said she believes Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell would be on staff if the former president ran and won in 2024. The former White House press secretary was on CNN's New Day as part of media tour for her memoir 'I'll Take Your Questions Now,' her tale about her work for Donald and Melania Trump, which is out on Tuesday. Grisham, who worked for Donald Trump from the early days of his 2016 campaign until she resigned in protest on January 6th, described what it was like to work for the former president. During her tenure she served as spokesperson for him and for Melania Trump. 'It took me a really long time to realize it was a culture of abuse in there, you just want to keep Donald Trump happy. You just don't want him to yell at you,' she said.  'You learn to give him the answer that he wants. We learned to work around him.' She described Trump...
    Two months ago, Katie Couric retweeted a tweet from a health researcher named Ahmed Ali which contained photos of me, Donald Trump and conservative activist Charlie Kirk and the words: 'Bullying successful women is a coping mechanism for a lot of mediocre men.' Couric commented: 'A friend sent me this. Hmmmmmmmm.' The clear implication was that she endorsed the message Ali posted after I, Trump and Kirk criticized gymnast Simone Biles for quitting in the Tokyo Olympics. (The woke brigade had decided that Biles was an inspiring, courageous heroine for giving up on her teammates - she later competed in a solo event - and anyone who said otherwise was a disgusting misogynist pig). Ms Couric wanted her 1.7 million Twitter followers to know she has no time for awful mediocre men like me who 'bully' successful women. I had a flick through her tweets since then, and they follow a similar pattern of endlessly virtue-signalling pro-women, anti-bullying rhetoric. I was excited to read extracts from her new autobiography, Going There, expecting to read yet more inspiring proclamations of supportive...

    Monica Lewinsky says that her thoughts of suicide during the Clinton investigation led her to ask independent counsel Ken Starr's legal team what would happen if she died — and now, years later, she is shocked that no one considered seemed concerned enough to do anything about it.  The 48-year-old discussed the toll that the investigation and the subsequent public shaming took on her mental health in a new episode of David Axelrod's CNN podcast 'The Axe Files,' describing the aftermath of her affair with then-President Bill Clinton as a 'tumultuous' time that had her thinking about ending her life. 'I just couldn't see a way out. And I thought that maybe [suicide] was the solution,' she said. 'I had asked the OIC [Office of Independent Counsel] lawyers, "What happens if I die?" As more of an adult now, I think back, "How was there not a protocol?" 'Like, that's point where you're supposed to bring a psychologist in or, you know, something. How is that not a breaking point in whatever their plan for Prom Night was, which is what they called the...
    CASH-STRAPPED Americans are concerned that they may miss out on next month's child tax credit payments if there is a government shutdown. Government shutdowns occur when Congress misses its deadline to pass annual spending bills ahead of the next fiscal year which starts on October 1. 2Families are worried that they may not receive their child tax credit payment if there is a government shutdownCredit: Getty Lawmakers in Congress are yet to pass a temporary measure that keeps the government going and could affect more than two million federal workers. It has left Americans fearing that October’s child tax credit payments will be delayed if there is a shutdown. During a shutdown, the IRS would not be able to verify income and Social Security numbers, Forbes reports. The IRS has not yet spoken publicly about contingency measures that it will take should a shutdown occur. But, based on the guidance published in the IRS' plans, Americans have little to fear. Programs such as Social Security are paid out of an “indefinite appropriation” meaning stimulus checks could continue to be...
    Barry Hankerson, former manager to R. Kelly and uncle to late R&B singer Aaliyah, said that the now-convicted sex offender 'wouldn't have to worry about a trial' if he had been aware of the abuse against his niece. 'If I had known what Robert Kelly was doing, Robert Kelly would not have to worry about a trial,' Hankerson told The Daily News.  'I can't say what would have happened, but there wouldn't have been a trial if I had known about any of the things he was trying to do to my niece.'  Hankerson, 74, who introduced the two stars, declined to elaborate on what he might have done to Kelly if he had been privy to the couple's inappropriate relationship. Kelly, 54, was found guilty of all nine counts of racketeering and sex trafficking by a federal jury on Monday during his trial which featured testimony about his sexual exploitation of Aaliyah and their illegal marriage. Barry Hankerson (pictured), former manager to R. Kelly and uncle to late R&B singer Aaliyah, said that the now-convicted sex offender 'wouldn't have to...

    Brian Laundrie, through his lawyer, has still refused to speak with police about the possible whereabouts of his missing fiancé Gabby Petito, whose van he drove home to Florida from out West 10 days before she was reported missing. Laundrie’s attorney has only released a pair of statements that do not address the missing 22-year-old’s possible whereabouts or last known location. "I can see why criminal defense lawyer would say, you know what, you can't. You got to stay in the background: Don't talk," said Lara Yeretsia, a leading West Coast-based defense attorney. "but I can also see why it's so difficult in this situation, how horrific it is and what the impact is, because he's the last person who saw her."

    Damien Lillard recently announced that he plans to stay in Portland, but things could change quickly in the NBA. Another drastic defeat in the playoffs, he could change his mind. If so, he would have received Already An owner at Viewfinder. The future Damien Lillard Seems to have been taken: He will stay with Blazers. But how long will his iron last, someone who has already been dealing with disappointments for many seasons? In his last five games in the playoffs, he has only qualified once in the first round, which is unworthy of this talented player. Most of the time, he is not particularly to blame, which should be a source of frustration. In fact, its leaders struggle to round it up with quality players. It’s so simple, he can’t trust another All-Star’s help, which is especially felt in the best moments. CJ McCullum is a good player, but he has repeatedly shown that he cannot accept the role of luxury lieutenant on a team with ambition. If failures follow each other in the future, the...
    Melania Trump will be at her husband's side if former President Trump decides to run for another term in the White House, according to advisers and figures close to the couple. They hit back at a recent report that Melania was intent on avoiding another four years as first lady.  'If you see them together at Mar-a-Lago you know they are in this together and all the reports about them leading separate lives are nonsense,' said a frequent visitor to Trump's Florida club.  Trump has dropped frequent hints that he is planning a 2024 run but aides say he is unlikely to make a formal announcement until after nest year's midterm elections. That leaves political commentators guessing about his intentions - and those of his wife. Insiders told CNN on Sunday that the former model was content being a mother to 15-year-old Barron and had 'zero desire' to return to the White House.  But allies responded by insisting the report was false.  'If [Trump] runs, she will be right there,' an adviser told Politico.  'She's not going to have her...
    FIKAYO TOMORI has revealed Zlatan Ibrahimovic demands such high standards at AC Milan that players can’t even switch off during foot-golf.

    Afghanistan is under Taliban control and "The Five" co-host Greg Gutfeld argued it’s not the time to infer that the world has its eyes on the evolving disaster when nothing is being done to mend it. "Can we ban the phrase, finally, ‘the world is watching’?" he proposed. "Because nobody cares if the world is watching." Gutfeld pointed out that the current Taliban government continues to beat, abuse and oppress Afghan citizens without any consquences. "So ‘the whole world is watching’ means nothing if you’re not doing anything after watching," he said. "It’s like people hold up smartphones while you’re being attacked, it’s like, could you help me? Put down the phone and help me!" 4 PRISONERS OBAMA EXCHANGED FOR BOWE BERGHDAHL NOW IN SENIOR TALIBAN POSITIONS The co-host described the U.S. withdrawal as "so royally screwed up" that it may be impossible to "unscrew," likening the situation to a car accident Video"You can’t reverse it and get the car back," he said.

    Eric Swalwell said a staffer asked him if he wants a House expensed bulletproof vest to protect himself from conservative, pro-Second Amendment lawmakers like Representative Madison Cawthorn. Cawthorn said at an event in Macon County, North Carolina on Sunday that 'rigged elections' will end in 'bloodshed.' Then on Monday night, Swalwell suggested he fears that Cawthorn could violently lash out in a way that would require him to have a bulletproof vest to protect himself. 'A staffer emailed me yesterday asking if I wanted to buy a bulletproof vest because 'it's now an approved expense by the House,' the California congressman tweeted. 'I didn't believe she was for real,' Swalwell continued. 'Turns out she was thinking about people like Cawthorn — NOT even people outside of my office building — BUT inside.' The House now allows lawmakers to expense bulletproof vests if they desire one– an obvious response to the January 6 attack on the Capitol that resulted in five deaths as rioters protested the 2020 presidential election results in the aftermath of a 'Stop the Steal' rally.  The congressman's...
    North Carolina Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn warned of “bloodshed” if American elections continue to be “rigged.” “The things that we are wanting to fight for, it doesn’t matter if our votes don’t count,” Cawthorn told a crowd Sunday evening at a local GOP headquarters in Franklin County, North Carolina, according to a now-restricted livestream posted to Facebook and a series of videos circulated on Twitter by a Democratic congressional staffer. “Because, you know, if our election systems continue to be rigged and continue to be stolen, then it’s going to lead to one place — and it’s bloodshed.” There is no evidence that the 2020 election was rigged, and claims that it was have been thoroughly discredited through dozens of lawsuits, recounts and investigations in multiple contested states. Cawthorn, a freshman and one of the youngest lawmakers ever elected to the House, suggested he would take up arms against fellow Americans if left no other option in order to combat voter fraud. “I will tell you, as much as I’m willing to defend liberty at all costs, there is nothing...
    A young Quyen Dinh and her father Quang Dinh in San Jose, California. by Quyen Dinh This story was originally published at Prism. The heartbreaking images of panicked crowds at the Kabul airport remind me of how my family’s story began after the Vietnam War. In 1975, my uncle, aunt, and three out of their four kids made it onto an American plane—leaving their eldest daughter behind—as U.S. forces left Vietnam, just like the Afghan refugees attempting to leave their country that we see today. Four years later, my parents fled Vietnam as boat people, part of a mass exodus making a dangerous escape by sea. They were among millions on the run from war, genocide, and communism in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. Thanks in part to the 1980 Refugee Act, they were able to gain asylum and sponsorship through my uncle and aunt, who had arrived in the States earlier. President Joe Biden had co-sponsored that act during his time in the Senate. So in early August, when I joined other Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific...

    The Taliban has threatened a 'reaction' if the US or UK extend the deadline for the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. Joe Biden has set a deadline of August 31 for all Americans to have left the country, but UK military sources said another fortnight was needed to evacuate everyone. Taliban spokesman Dr Suhail Shaheen has warned of 'consequences' if Western forces stay beyond the end of the month. He told Sky News: 'It's a red line. President Biden announced that on 31 August they would withdraw all their military forces. So if they extend it that means they are extending occupation while there is no need for that. 'If the US or UK were to seek additional time to continue evacuations - the answer is no. Or there would be consequences.  'It will create mistrust between us. If they are intent on continuing the occupation it will provoke a reaction.' Dr Shaheen also claimed people are not fleeing Afghanistan because they are scared, saying it was purely 'economic migration', despite the desperate scenes at Kabul airport. He added it was...
    Joe Biden's national security adviser warned the Taliban on Sunday that the U.S. will issue a 'forceful' response if they interfere in American evacuation efforts from Afghanistan – and he doesn't rule out sending in more troops. 'If in the end Americans are blocked from getting to the airport, blocked from leaving the country, or our operations are disrupted or our evacuations are in some way interfered with, we have explained to them that there will be a swift and forceful response,' Jake Sullivan told NBC News host Chuck Todd during an interview on Meet the Press. Sullivan detailed that Washington has an agreement with the Taliban that they will allow all American citizens passage to the Kabul airport – including through any checkpoints along their travel to the Hamid Karzai International Airport. He admitted Sunday that the airport is dangerous and faces 'threats from ISIS.' 'I know that the scenes around the airport are heartbreaking, large crowds of people wanting to leave,' Sullivan said.
