    Former President Donald Trump still has the Republican Party on lock if recent polling is any indication. Still, a Democratic lawmaker insists that many Republicans are only interested in using Trump for the political advantage he brings, and they privately hold a great deal of disdain for him. Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) was hosted by Morning Joe on Tuesday, and the conversation started with an ad that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee released over the weekend. The ad predictably paints Trump as “a loser” who can’t accept that he lost the 2020 election, but the GOP is fine with appealing to his voters. As chairman of the DCCC, Maloney was asked to explain the strategy behind the video, and he answered by saying “Donald, they’re laughing at you up on Capitol Hill.” “They use you like some cheap mistress for their purposes,” he continued, “but then they laugh at you behind your back, and then they run away from you when they try to talk to voters in swing districts. We think the former president should know that the...
    SHOPPING for jeans can be stressful enough - but this woman claims Primark’s new sizing is "crazy" in a hilarious changing room try-on video.  The Tiktok user wears a size 12 - 14 in all her other jeans, but she says that Primark’s size 14 trousers won’t even zip up.  4Abi was shocked by Primark's tiny sizingCredit: @midsizegal/Tiktok Tiktok user Abi, who uses the name @midsizegal, shared a video of herself trying to squeeze into several pairs of jeans and thousands of viewers related to her experience.  She says all the jeans featured in the video are a size 14, but the fashion fan demonstrated how some pairs wouldn’t go over her hips, while other simply wouldn’t zip up.  Abi knew the experience would be laughable, as she captioned the video: “Thought I’d have a laugh and try on the Primark denim.” The video has racked up over 100,000 views and commenters agree Primark’s “improved sizing” has actually made all their trousers much smaller. 4Hundreds of commenters agreed they were 'fed up'Credit: @midsizegal/Tiktok One viewer raged: “Honestly so fed up...
    JUSTIN BIEBER and his wife Hailey are trying for a baby after he overcame mental health battles that left him suicidal. In my exclusive first look at the singer’s new Amazon Prime documentary Justin Bieber: Our World, he talks in intimate self-shot footage about his hopes. 6Justin has hinted he might be trying for a baby with partner Hailey 6The couple attended the Met Gala in New York last month After model Hailey asks him about his aims for 2021, he says: “To continue to set goals and have fun doing them, make sure I put family first. “And hopefully we will squish out a nugget.” As Hailey smiles, he adds: “At the end of 2021 how about we start trying?” After being shot to the stratosphere at 16 with debut album Baby and his mega-hit of the same name, Justin struggled to cope with global fame.

    The parents of Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Wednesday they "don't know" how their son is doing after he was put into the brig Monday. According to the parents, no one has told them yet what the charges were.Scheller was put under a gag in order to prevent him from speaking out against military leadership regarding the botched troop withdrawal from Afghanistan his parents, Stu and Cathy, said in a statement. "He was issued a gag order which he broke this weekend by posting on social media," the statement said.  The Marine's father told Carlson, "He knew this weekend when he posted again and he broke his silence that they were probably going to arrest him. He is a very intelligent man. He understands what's going to happen to him.""He broke chain of command … his crime was speaking truth to power, and power couldn't handle it … While he broke chain of command – [Gens.] Austin, Milley, McKenzie –  they broke the chain of trust and confidence in the American people.

    Demi Lovato discussed extraterrestrials as if they were angels while promoting their alien-hunting show Unidentified, which premieres this Thursday on Peacock. 'I feel like we're all our own worst enemy, or at least I am,' the 29-year-old 'believer' told ET's Matt Cohen on Monday.

    During Wednesday’s handoff from Chris Cuomo to Don Lemon, the former criticized some conservatives over their attitudes toward Afghan refugees looking to come to the United States. Lemon mentioned the fact that security fencing will be placed around the Capitol once again, after it had been taken down in July. The fencing was erected after the January 6 Capitol riot, and now barriers will be put up again ahead of a September 18 rally being held in favor of those who rioted on on that day. “Here we are,” said Lemon. “Eight months later and it seems like we’re in the same spot.” “It’s ’cause we are,” said Cuomo. “What has changed? The anger, the animus, the misinformation, the disinformation. It just gets layered on. Remember the lasagna of lies? It’s just gotten higher and higher.” He continued, “They’re not changing their tune. The only change in tune that has been perceptible to me is right at the end of the Afghanistan exit, when they were desperately trying to get people out, you had people on the right having it...
    A pregnant California native still trapped in Afghanistan says the Taliban are going door to door hunting for Americans.  Nasria, 25, who requested only her first name be used out of fear for her safety, is one of the 100 to 200 Americans believed to still be stuck in the country, and trying to find a way out.  She had flown there in June to visit family, and get married to her longtime boyfriend, who is an Afghan national.  'There's been days where I think to myself, "am I going to make it home? am I going to end up living here? Am I going to end up dying here?" What's going to happen?' she told Voice of America.  Now, with American presence in the country gone, she says, 'Apparently they're [the Taliban] going door-to-door now. Trying to see if anyone has a blue passport.' California native Nasria, 25, (pictured) is among the 100 to 200 Americans still trapped in Afghanistan trying to escape Nasria had traveled to the country in June to get married, but, now pregnant,...
    Thai police have allegedly tortured a drugs suspect to death after suffocating him with plastic bags wrapped around his head in a bid to extort a £44,000 bribe. Jirapong Thanapat, 24, had been arrested with his girlfriend after they were allegedly selling methamphetamine in Nakhon Sawan, northeast Thailand on August 5. CCTV footage of him being tortured by police as they tried to demand money to secure his release has been widely shared after it was leaked by a junior officer.

    President Joe Biden gave a speech on the covid-19 pandemic on Wednesday that touched on school mask mandates and some states where leaders are banning them. The president again urged more Americans to get vaccinated and talked up the need for people to continue masking, and that includes in schools. Without mentioning anyone in particular, Biden took a veiled shot at governors like Ron DeSantis, saying, “Some politicians are trying to turn public safety measures — children wearing masks in school — into political disputes for their own political gain.” “Some are even trying to take power away from local educators by banning masks in schools. They’re setting a dangerous tone,” he continued. DeSantis recently issued an executive order preventing schools from implementing mask mandates. The order is facing a legal challenge, and some school districts have been defying the executive order. The president referenced the disturbing video from Tennessee of people engaging in “intimidation and threats” at a school board meeting, and he commended schools in Florida and Arizona for “doing the right thing.” I’m directing the Secretary of Education,...
    The elephant herd dawdling through a field in the southwest of Yunnan province on June 20. Xinhua via Getty Images China's roving elephant herd is finally being guided home after 16 months of wandering. A taskforce of experts and forestry firefighters are using drones, elephant treats, and scores of vehicles to persuade the animals back to their reserve. The herd still has hundreds of miles to go, and the rest of the trip will likely take months. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. China's roaming elephants are finally on the way home after wandering for more than 16 months across the country. It's been slow going for Chinese authorities trying to usher the 14 pachyderms back to their home reserve near China's border with Thailand. The whole operation is run by almost 40 forestry firefighters, who keep tabs on the herd with drones as the jumbo travelers trundle through thick forests and villages, reported AFP. When the elephants enter populated areas, the task force cuts the power to prevent the giants from electrocuting themselves or starting fires....
    There are an awful lot of issues in the news right now. A lot of them are pretty depressing. So on this Friday, we thought we’d start with something pretty amusing.   Back in 2015, our government’s so-called intelligence community, which is not intelligent or a community, announced that it was embarking on a new five-year mission. The goal, according to the Obama administration, was to funnel more resources to every spy agency in the country -- the CIA, NSA, FBI, DIA and so forth. Even the Coast Guard's in-house intelligence operation was slated to get a bigger budget.  Under normal circumstances, an announcement like that would set off fear trembling among our opponents around the world. They’d be shaking in their caves. The Chinese might think twice before bribing more Harvard professors or sending Eric Swalwell a new secret agent to have sex with. But in this case, they just laughed. Because they knew that money wasn't going to buy drones, or more sophisticated surveillance equipment, or more agents in the field. Instead, it was earmarked for new platoons...
    Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s special legislative session focuses the GOP-backed voting reforms, combatting critical race theory in schools and prohibiting transgender women from partaking in women’s sports. The session begins Thursday, and Abbott released the agenda 24 hours earlier. Other issues on the table include pushing back against social media “censorship” and funding for the state’s legislative branch, which Abbott vetoed after the election bill failed. “The 87th Legislative Session was a monumental success for the people of Texas, but we have unfinished business to ensure that Texas remains the most exceptional state in America,” Abbott said in a statement. Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said in a tweet that the legislature would pick up the election legislation first, and that committee hearings would begin Saturday. Senate Bill 7, which would overhaul Texas elections, failed to pass the state senate in May after Democrats walked off the floor in protest. It would limit mail-in voting, change early voting hours and completely ban drive-thru voting, which was predominantly used in large cities like Houston. It empowers partisan poll watchers and increases...

    Rescue workers could hear a woman trapped in the rubble of the Miami condo collapse shouting for help - but after hours of trying to reach her, they no longer heard her screams.  'She passed,' a fire official confirmed Thursday.       Miami Dade Fire Chief Alan Cominsky told reporters at a news conference Thursday morning that early in the rescue effort, crews had been trying to get to the woman who they could hear, but could not reach.  'We did hear audible sounds,' he said. 'They were searching for a female voice, is what we heard, for several hours - and eventually we didn't hear her voice anymore.' The revelation came as Florida officials said they were halting rescue operations out of fear they could cause further collapse, one week after a portion of the 12-story Champlain Towers South fell, killing 18 people and leaving another 145 so far unaccounted for.   Rescue workers could be seen desperately trying to reach a woman they could hear trapped behind a wall of concrete roughly 10 hours after the Surfside condo collapse  In addition...
    Michael Wasserman wants to let his freedom fly — but his town of Long Beach, New York, isn’t having it. "I believe the city is trying to silence me because I’m pro-Trump," he told The Post. The 62-year-old entrepreneur has become known in the area for plastering his home — along with his Porsche and Jeep — with a rotating variety of political flags and stickers. Now he has filed a $25 million federal suit — against the City of Long Beach, the chief of police, the city manager and specific police officers — after officials forced him to remove the flags on his cars. The town claims they are a violation of an ordinance stating that "[No] sign shall be erected, affixed or maintained within the perimeter of any … public street or public property." Wasserman parks his car on a public street outside his home. IOWA GOVERNOR SIGNS ‘BACK THE BLUE’ BILL THAT INCREASES PENALTIES FOR PROTEST-RELATED CRIMES "They’re bending and massaging the ordinance to fit the crime," Wasserman told The Post. "This is a blatant attempt to...
    A COUNTY in North Carolina has banned Coca-Cola vending machines following the company's criticism of a controversial Georgia voting law. Officials in Surry County voted to ban the machines in all of its office buildings in a bid to "cancel Coca-Cola" and "take a stand against left-wing politics." 6Officials in Surry County voted to ban the machines in all of its office buildings in a bid to 'cancel Coca-Cola'Credit: Getty Images - Getty 6Eddie Harris, the longest-serving commissioner in Surry County, said the boycott was a way for the country to take a stand against 'cancel culture'Credit: Facebook The all-Republican county commissioners passed the ban on a 3-2 vote last month, but the machines are still yet to be removed, WXII reports. Eddie Harris, the longest-serving commissioner in Surry County, said the boycott was a way for the country to take a stand against "cancel culture." He also said he hopes the ban is enacted in the rest of the state to use the far-left's "cancel culture tactics against them." "The left-wing in America, they defund, they boycott, they cancel,...
    Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson were first romantically linked in 2016. Jerritt Clark/Getty Images Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson have considered using a surrogate to have a second child.  The couple opened up during Thursday's episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." Kardashian said she was "second-guessing" the option after speaking with a surrogate therapist.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson opened up about their hopes to have a second child via surrogate.  On Thursday's episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," Kardashian, 36, and Thompson, 30, revealed their desire to give their daughter, True Thompson, a younger sibling.  Kardashian explained that she and Thompson were considering alternatives because it would be a "high risk" for her to get pregnant again.  "A few months ago, Tristan and I made embryos, and during that time, I was also told that I would not be smart if I carried my second pregnancy, I would be high risk and to explore surrogacy options, so Tristan and I have decided that's what we're going to do," Kardashian said. ...
    The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is on the brink of causing a full-out war after Hamas, the terrorist organization in control of the Gaza Strip, rained down rockets on Israeli civilians - leading to Israeli retaliatory strikes against the radical militant group. The latest escalation in the region is considered to have caused the most serious bloodshed in the longstanding dispute since 2014.  The issue is one of the world’s longest and most controversial conflicts. Fox Nation's Pete Hegseth recently traveled to the region, where he spoke with residents on all sides to offer viewers a detailed history of the conflict as documented in the exclusive Fox Nation documentary, 'Battle in the Holy Land.' Hegseth told 'America Reports' on Thursday that he traveled to the Holy Land to give viewers "the context of what the state of Israel faces from Hamas and from its enemy who wants to wipe them off the map." IDF: ROCKETS FIRED FROM LEBANON INTO ISRAEL Addressing the recent escalation in the region, Hegseth said it is critical for viewers to "understand why this war is so important for...
    Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., responded Thursday to what he called the left's "stunning" personal assault against him following his rebuttal to President Biden's address to Congress.  Scott told "Fox & Friends" it was shocking to hear intolerance coming from those who say they want to end discrimination, and that those attacking him were doubling down on the concept of liberal oppression.  LIBERALS ERUPTED ON TIM SCOTT FOR SAYING AMERICA ISN'T RACIST, BUT KAMALA HARRIS AGREES Video"Intolerance so often comes from the left with words like 'Uncle Tim' and the 'n-word' being used against me," Scott said. "And last night what was trending in social media was 'Uncle Tim,' and they doubled down on this concept of liberal oppression. It is stunning in 2021 that those who speak about ending discrimination want to end it by more discrimination." "The left has doubled down that they are going to, not attack my policies, but they're literally attacking the color of my skin," he added.

    When vaccine appointments opened up in my state, I knew exactly what to do. After all, I’ve spent the past year hunting down things like Sanrio Animal Crossing cards and Pikachu-themed Happy Meals. The fact these two experiences can be compared at all is bewildering, but it’s true. The skills I learned during my online endeavors helped me maximize my odds of getting a vaccine appointment. First, I compiled a long list of links connecting me to places distributing the vaccines. I turned on notifications for a Twitter account and joined a Facebook group that buzzed me every time new appointment spots opened up. And, to top it all off, I made sure my PC was wired, so I had the fastest internet speed possible. Some of these things might have never occurred to me without my hobbies, where subcultures have developed intricate strategies to secure things that sell out in the blink of an eye. It’s a similarity that has been noted again and again by my peers and friends on social media. “Why are getting...
    Actress Sophia Bush has attacked Republican efforts to pass laws on the state level combating voter fraud, accusing GOP politicians of “trying to kill democracy.” She also said voter integrity laws in states including Georgia represent the new “Jim Crow.” The One Tree Hill actress and left-wing activist claimed in an Instagram post Tuesday that voting rights “are under attack.” “The @gop has launched > 250 voter suppression bills,” she wrote. “They’re trying to kill democracy. This is the new #JimCrow, and is against all we stand for.” View this post on Instagram A post shared by Sophia Bush (@sophiabush) On Thursday, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed into law Senate Bill 202, which is intended to combat fraud by implementing voter identification requirements and limiting ballot drop boxes throughout the state. The new law also gives the Georgia State Elections Board the power to take over county election boards in areas that may require oversight. Sophia Bush is the latest left-wing Hollywood elite to incorrectly claim the new law deprives black people of the right to vote, citing...
    Basking Ridge, New Jersey (CNN)On a gorgeous spring afternoon, Aimee and Stephen Welch are playing with their five kids in their sun-drenched New Jersey backyard, taking a break from the grind of virtual schooling and working from home. But their laughs on the swings and shrieks on the trampoline belie a deep sense of sadness -- because one person is missing. It's now been a year since they had their bags packed and hotels booked for a trip to China to adopt their sixth child, a 7-year-old named Penelope. Then, the coronavirus pandemic hit. Some families have been kept apart by coronavirus. These families are still waiting to meetA weekslong delay turned into months as, by early March 2020, China suspended the country's foreign adoption program. One year later, they are still stuck in limbo."Every time I go into her room and just see her pink bed there, that no one has slept in and the drawers full of clothes that have probably been outgrown before they could ever be worn," Aimee Welch told CNN's Poppy Harlow, "it's just a...
    DONALD Trump believes China "thinks the US is stupid" after Dr Seuss was "canceled," remarking they're "trying to kill us in so many ways." His comments come after the decision to recall six of the children's classics amid claims they include "clear" examples of racist stereotypes. During a Fox News interview, Trump said: “They’re going to destroy it with tax increases the likes of which nobody has ever seen before, in order to accomplish the Green New Deal nonsense. "They’re destroying it with ‘woke.' When China looks at woke, they see the biggest problem we have is Dr. Seuss. "In the meantime, they’re building factories and trying to kill us in so many different ways.

    The White House blamed the stairs on Air Force One for President Joe Biden's fall on Friday, after first blaming the breeze.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Biden, 78, was '100 per cent fine' but she didn't say whether or not he was examined by a doctor after he fell multiple times trying to board the 747 presidential aircraft for his trip to Atlanta. A medical team always travels with the president where ever he goes.  'He's 100% fine, I don't know if you've been up those steps they're a little tricky sometimes,' Psaki said Monday at her daily press briefing. And she punted on whether or not a doctor examined the president.  'I'm not aware of that being required. There's, of course, a doctor who travels with the president, any president of the United States, but I'm not aware of it needing actual, extensive medical attention,' she said. She didn't clarify when reporters at the briefing pointed out she didn't say no.  'I'm not trying to be a, there's a doctor who travels with him. He was...
    Democratic leadership is attempting to further pad their House majority by sinking into disputing the election results in an Iowa House race where Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks won by just six votes. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is paying legal fees for attorney Marc Elias to argue for overturning the results. The Democratic election lawyer helped this winter fight against dozens of lawsuits brought by Donald Trump arguing fraud in the 2020 presidential election. Miller-Meeks bested Democratic candidate Rita Hart in November by one of the closest margins in American election history as they competed to represent Iowa's 2nd District. Now the party is alleging 22 ballots were not counted – a consequential amount in a race with less than a 1% margin of victory. The attempt from Democrats to bolster their slim House majority comes just weeks after they excoriated Trump for launching his series of voter fraud claims in an attempt to overturn the Electoral College results. Trump allies claim the latest is just another attempt by Democrats to fraudulently take an election. Senate Minority Leader Mitch...

    Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., fired back Thursday after a group of left-leaning lawmakers called for an investigation into whether his objection to the 2020 presidential election results violated the upper chamber’s ethics guidelines. Hawley and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tx., drew bipartisan criticism in recent days after they objected to Electoral College results in battleground states on Jan. 6, the same day that pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol. In a complaint filed with the Senate Ethics Committee, a group of seven Democrats said Hawley and Cruz "lent legitimacy to the mob’s cause" and should be investigated for potential conduct violations. "Joe Biden and the Democrats talk about unity but are brazenly trying to silence dissent," Hawley said in a statement on the ethics complaint. "This latest effort is a flagrant abuse of the Senate ethics process and a flagrant attempt to exact partisan revenge." "Democrats appear intent on weaponizing every tool at their disposal — including pushing an unconstitutional impeachment process — to further divide the country. Missourians will not be canceled by these partisan attacks," he added. Hawley and...
    CARSON CITY, Nev. – President Donald Trump and Democratic rival Joe Biden went on offense over the weekend, as both campaigned in states they are trying to flip during the Nov. 3 election that is just over two weeks away. Trump began his Sunday in Nevada, making a rare visit to church before a fundraiser and an evening rally in Carson City. Once considered a battleground, Nevada has not swung for a Republican presidential contender since 2004. The rally drew thousands of supporters who sat elbow to elbow, cheering Trump and booing Biden and the press. The vast majority wore no masks to guard against the coronavirus, though cases in the state are on the rise, with more than 1,000 new infections reported Saturday. The president, as he often does, warned that a Biden election would lead to further lockdowns and at one point appeared to mock Biden for saying he would listen to scientists. “He'll listen to the scientists. If I listened totally to the scientists, we would right now have a country that would be in a massive...

    The halloween cat collar (three pack, adjustable strap, ghost pendant and bell) has conspicuously rave reviews on Amazon. “Three for $10 is a steal!” reads one. “They seem to be made of quality material and the clasps don’t break away as easily as some other ones.” The review, like many on the e-commerce platform, is fake. It was written by Jason Wawiernia, a search engine optimization specialist in Michigan. After he left his glowing assessment of the product, Wawiernia received a refund through PayPal, in direct violation of Amazon’s policies governing ratings and reviews. Amazon banned incentivized reviews in 2016, but it’s still a rampant problem on the platform. On September 4th, a Financial Times investigation revealed nine of the top 10 reviewers in the UK were engaged in suspicious activity, leaving scores of five-star reviews for unknown Chinese brands. “Many of the same items were seen by the FT in groups and forums offering free products or money in exchange for reviews,” the article read. For third-party sellers, good ratings are critical for success on the...
    The July 3 protest in Aurora, Colorado, seemed, at least on the surface, like just another of the hundreds of racial justice protests that have swept the nation this year. Demonstrators sat outside a police station chanting and playing music. Although they said they wouldn’t leave until their demands were met, the protesters were cleared out by police around 4:30 a.m. But several of the protest leaders are facing felony attempted kidnapping charges for allegedly imprisoning police officers in their own precinct during the protest—charges their fellow activists are calling absurd. Lillian House, Joel Northam, and Whitney “Eliza” Lucero are among a group of Denver-area activists facing a slate of charges related to their protest activities this summer. Local prosecutors say the activists tried to kidnap police by holding a short-lived “occupation”-style protest outside the precinct and blocking its doors. But activists allege a crackdown on the most visible members of their movement, leading to terrifying SWAT arrests and the threat of years in prison. “This characterization that someone quote-unquote kidnapped officers is absolutely ridiculous,” Ryan Hamby, an organizer...
    (CNN)Lewis Hamilton says race stewards are "trying to stop me" after he was denied a record-equaling 91st career win at the Russian Grand Prix on Sunday. Hamilton was penalized for performing practice starts outside his designated area and was handed two five-second penalties that saw him drop out of contention. The six-time world champion had started in pole and was bidding to equal Michael Schumacher's record of career victories but could only finish third behind winner Valtteri Bottas and second-placed Max Verstappen. After the race, Hamilton said he felt the punishments were excessive. "Of course it is. But it's to be expected. They're trying to stop me, aren't they?," he told Sky Sports F1.

    It's not always easy to learn local customs as a traveller and for some unlucky jet-setters, attempts at politeness can land them in hot water with the locals. While it would be considered a lovely gesture to pay the bill for everyone in the UK or the US, it's seen as the height of rudeness in Russia and Austria, which Australian traveller Sarah Ryan discovered.  After accidentally committing a 'cultural no-no' traveller she took to Facebook to consult the members of Girls LOVE Travel over the cultural differences they have encountered, and was met with over a thousand responses. Read on to discover the etiquette mistakes you will want to avoid while abroad, including handing an object over with your left hand in Sub-Saharan Africa and not thanking people twice in Japan.

    Unsolicited copies of the Klu Klux Klan's quarterly newspaper have been left on the doorsteps of dozens of residents of a Kentucky neighborhood, provoking outrage.   A member of the white supremacist hate group said the motivation behind leaving copies of its Crusader paper in the Pleasure Ridge Park area of Louisville, was to ‘educate our White Christian Brothers and Sisters’, the Courier Journal reported. The KKK member, who was not named, also said the group wanted ‘to let them know in these troubling times of Chaos created by BLM, Antifa, NFAC, Etc. That there is an organization here for them.’ Austin Beam, 24, said he was left outraged when he went outside to take out the trash on Tuesday morning to find the KKK’s Crusader newspaper outside of his home. He also saw it had been left on the lawns of a number of his neighbors. Beam said he took a few photos of the self-proclaimed ‘premier voice of the white resistance’ before throwing it away. ‘Nothing like that has been distributed in my neighborhood before, and I’ve been here...
    San Francisco salon owner Erica Kious said Wednesday that her efforts to expose the hypocrisy of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi could end her business — and she may be right. Even as Kious spoke with Fox News host and Daily Caller cofounder Tucker Carlson about the situation, the effort to destroy her appeared to already be underway. So the “set up” was Pelosi asked a salon to let her get her hair done in violation of local coronavirus guidelines & the salon owner let her then shared the video of Pelosi breaking the rules to show Pelosi’s hypocrisy, & so now Pelosi’s allies are out to destroy the salon owner. https://t.co/CFmBCPFxBu — JERRY DUNLEAVY (@JerryDunleavy) September 3, 2020 “The rules are for small-business owners who have seen their life’s work destroyed.

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his party are “trying to flip the script because they know they’re in trouble,” former Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker told “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday. Walker was reacting to remarks made by Biden during a campaign stop in Pittsburgh on Monday, in which the former vice president addressed the violence taking place in cities across the country. FLASHBACK: BIDEN CAMPAIGN STAFFERS DONATE TO GROUP THAT BAILS OUT JAILED MINNEAPOLIS RIOTERS: REPORT “I find it fascinating [Republicans say] ‘You won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America’ and what’s their proof? The violence we’re seeing in Donald Trump’s America,” Biden said. “These are not images of some imagined Joe Biden's America of the future. These are images of Donald Trump’s America today.” “Joe Biden has outsourced his entire agenda on this and other topics to the radical left, including his pick for vice president, Sen. [Kamala] Harris, who, according to Newsweek, has a voting record that is literally more liberal than Bernie Sanders,” Walker said. Video“She, as well as many of his staff, helped to get some of these rioters, some of these criminals who are creating chaos in our cities, out of jail.” Walker added that “the more...

    President Donald Trump suggested to Fox News during an interview on Thursday night that the administration is going to deploy as many law enforcement resources as it can during the election to prevent voter fraud from occurring. Trump blasted efforts by Democrats to institute universal mail-in voting, saying that “this is going to be the greatest scam in history” and “this will be the most fraudulent election in history.” “My question to you then is, are you going to have poll watchers?” Fox News host Sean Hannity asked. “Are you going to have an ability to monitor, to avoid fraud and cross check whether or not these are registered voters? Whether or not there’s been identification to know that it’s a real vote from a real American?” “We’re going to have everything,” Trump responded. “We’re going to have sheriffs and we’re going to have law enforcement and we’re going to have hopefully, U.S. attorneys, and we’re going to have everybody, and attorney generals. But it’s very hard.” “I mean, you have some of these states sending them out like Nevada...
    The Red Sox have reached the team meeting stage of a bad season. Before losing a second straight game to the Yankees on Saturday night — and fifth straight overall — the Red Sox held a team meeting at their hotel in New York to try to turn things around. It hasn’t paid immediate dividends, as they lost Saturday and again Sunday to extend their overall losing streak to seven straight games, but they want to change their mindset moving forward. “We’re really just trying to make the best of a unique situation with the season,” veteran outfielder Kevin Pillar told reporters Sunday night. “I know things aren’t going really well, we still have a ton of games left, and we got to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and come out every day. “This season is going to happen whether we want it to happen or not. We’ve got 40-some-odd games. A lot can change.” The Red Sox entered Monday 6-16. Their pitching has struggled, their defense has often been lacking and some of their biggest bats have started...
    Democrats can’t win an “honest election” so they are trying “to set up an ability to steal it,” Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday. Gingrich made the statement the morning after the Trump campaign and the Republican National state and national committees filed a lawsuit against Nevada over expanded mail-in voting for the November election. The lawsuit claims Assembly Bill 4, which would allow ballots to be mailed to all registered voters in the state, will undermine the election’s “integrity,” FOX 5 in Las Vegas reported. Gov. Steve Sisolak, a Democrat, signed the bill on Monday after it passed the state legislature along party lines, the Nevada Independent reported. Sisolak tweeted the bill “ensures protections for Nevadans to vote safely at the November election during the pandemic.” ROVE RIPS NEVADA'S UNIVERSAL MAIL-IN BALLOTING LAW, WARNS 'WE ARE GOING TO SEE THE POTENTIAL FOR FRAUD' Gingrich also reacted on Wednesday to a tweet from former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who wrote, “I fear Republican sabotage of the USPS, including slowing mail delivery, is a Trump strategy to...
    Matthew Rozsa July 26, 2020 12:00PM (UTC) Earlier this month, former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign released a 110-page document containing policy recommendations that the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate will be expected to advocate in his platform and (in theory) follow if elected in November. The conditions which led to the development of this platform are quite consequential. After Biden defeated Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders for the nomination, Sanders' staff and supporters argued that they could not support Biden merely because he was the only viable alternative to President Donald Trump. Former Sanders staffers joined the Biden campaign with explicit hopes that Biden would incorporate some of Sanders' progressive platform into his own. That was the mentality they brought with them when six policy task forces — on the economy, health care, education, immigration, climate change and criminal justice reform — were formed in May to make policy proposals to the Democratic National Convention's Platform Committee. : The task forces came away with a number of concrete policy suggestions, although they are not nearly as progressive as the Sanders campaign had hoped....

    Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., is planning on introducing an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would commit to holding a review and recommendation process over renaming military bases that currently honor former Confederate leaders. "I'm going to put forward an amendment that will take this out of politics and the attempt to turn it into a culture war issue, which is really, I think, unfortunately, what my Democrat colleagues in the Senate are trying to do. I mean, they're trying to use this to divide. They're trying to use this to stir up a culture war, all for political gain," Hawley told Fox News Digital in an interview Wednesday. The proposal would work to counteract a separate amendment offered by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., that would require the Department of Defense to remove the names of Confederate generals on all posts, assets, aircraft, streets, ships, etc., within three years. Warren's idea passed by voice vote out of the Senate Armed Sevices Committee last week. "The problem with Senator Warren's proposal is that it is mandatory. It says the bases will be renamed. It just skips...
