    Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger drew fulsome media praise at the end of last year after revealing Donald Trump’s illegal attempts to meddle in Georgia’s 2020 election certification process. Former Obama adviser David Axelrod celebrated Raffensperger’s “courage,” highlighting him as an exception to the GOP’s moral decline. There was even a brief media boomlet about awarding Raffensperger the Presidential Medal of Freedom. But Raffensperger is no hero today. Like other Republicans around the country, he’s focusing his energies on passing severe voter suppression proposals that undermine election integrity without the public visibility of an unhinged Trumpian call. In December, Raffensperger endorsed ending no-excuse absentee ballot requests in Georgia, arguing that it “opens the door to illegal voting.” In reality, the plan is aimed at making it harder for the over 1 million largely Democratic Georgians who cast absentee ballots to ever do so again. He’s not alone. Republican legislatures...
    So the Democrats have pushed open the door. The Senate passed—at 5:34 Friday morning, 51-50, strict party line—a budget resolution that clears the way to passage, probably next month, of Joe Biden’s COVID relief bill. It may not be exactly $1.9 trillion, but it looks like it’ll be something close to that. First of all, please note: Working in harmony here were President Biden; Bernie Sanders, who as chairman of the Senate Budget Committee was in charge of seeing this thing through; Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema, who voted to move the resolution along; Vice President Kamala Harris, who cast the tie-breaking vote, and every other Senate Democrat, along with key figures from Biden’s economic team like Jared Bernstein and Heather Boushey. There were conflicts around the edges, about the minimum wage, but there may be room yet to work out a compromise. The point is, everyone was in the...
    The Duchess of Rutland has insisted running a stately home is not 'all glamour' and isn't 'for the faint-hearted' ahead of the release of her new podcast. Emma Manners, 57, alongside her daughter Lady Violet, 27, is aiming to explore the reality of aristocratic life in 21st century Britain in her new podcast series called Duchess, which will be launched on February 4. She's hoping to shine a light on what life is like for the women managing some of Britain's grandest estates - including her own, the 200-year-old Belvoir Castle, in Leicestershire. Speaking to People, Emma said: 'I'm not saying there's not glamour attached to these lives, but there's also an enormous amount of hard work and focus and drive and I would say it really wouldn't be for the faint-hearted.' Describing how families at the homes often have to 'muck in', Emma recalled a moment when she had...
    BOND girl Tanya Roberts' devastated husband has revealed doctors have told him to "let his wife die" as she continues to battle a "mystery illness", The Sun can exclusively reveal. It was widely reported on Sunday that the 65-year-old actress had passed away after her rep spoke to a number of media outlets, but her husband of 18 years has now claimed it was a stunning hospital mix-up.

    Actress Tanya Roberts is still alive, according to her publicist, despite his earlier report that she had died. On Sunday, TMZ reported that the 65-year-old, famous for her roles in Charlie's Angels, the James Bond movie franchise, and That '70s Show, was rushed to the hospital and put on a ventilator after collapsing on Christmas Eve. Lance O'Brien, Roberts's longtime partner, said that on Sunday, he went to visit Roberts at the hospital after doctors told him she was fading fast. When he got there, Roberts opened her eyes and tried to grab him, but then, O'Brien said, she "faded." He left the facility distraught, thinking she had died. The next day, a representative for Roberts, Mike Pingel, released a statement based on what he had heard from O'Brien, announcing Roberts's death. That morning, during an interview with Inside Edition, Pingel said he received a call from...
    (CNN)When did bipartisanship become partisan? Because, if there was ever a "choice not an echo" election, this is it. The contrast is not just a question of character. It is not just a question of science versus spin as the Covid-19 pandemic death toll rises. It's the recognition that bipartisanship has become a partisan virtue in 2020. John Avlon The candidates' closing arguments make this clear. Donald Trump is trying -- as always -- to divide to conquer, demonizing anyone who disagrees with him, averaging a stunning 50 lies a day in an attempt to energize his base in states he won in 2016. Joe Biden is trying to practice the politics of addition, not division, campaigning in states Trump won last time around and repeating his core argument in a speech on national healing at Warm Springs, Georgia: "I'm running as a proud Democrat, but I will...

    J.K. Rowling’s latest book is about a murderous, cisgender man who dresses as a woman to kill his victims. Following new reviews of the book, Rowling, who has been widely criticized in recent months for transphobic comments, was at the center of a Twitter hashtag and memes condemning the writer. Hide The book, Troubled Blood, is the fifth installment in Rowling’s Cormoran Strike series, written under her pen name Robert Galbraith. Hide According to the Telegraph’s book review released on Sunday, the 900-page novel is essentially an investigation into a cold case: the disappearance of a woman in 1974 believed to be a victim of a cis male serial killer whose practice is dressing as a woman. The moral seems to be “never trust a man in a dress.”  Other books in the series have previously been blasted for depicting trans characters as unstable and aggressive.  On Twitter on Monday,...
    Demoratic nominee Joe Biden again slammed President Donald Trump for The Atlantic's reporting that he referred to American war dead as 'suckers' and 'losers' and disparaged those who served.  'When it comes to our veterans, it's downright un-American,' Biden said of Trump's reported comments Monday from Pennsylvania, as he held a virtual event in Harrisburg with AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.  Biden said that Trump wasn't 'made of the same stuff' as Americans who have served their country.  'He'll never understand us. He'll never understand our cops, our firefighters,' Biden said, bringing up law enforcement as Trump and Republicans have tried to pin the Democrat firmly on the side of 'Black Lives Matter' activists.  Democratic nominee Joe Biden took part in a virtual event but from the AFL-CIO headquarters Monday in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to mark Labor Day. There he again went after President Donald Trump for the Atlantic reporting he had called...
    There’s a scene in Years and Years, Russell T. Davies’ brilliant drama set in the near future (so brilliant it feels, every day in real life, that events overtake it), in which the character Rosie (Ruth Madeley) looks on in wonderment at Emma Thompson’s right-wing demagogue, Vivienne Rook. It is before Rook has fully risen to terrifying power. She is just a clever loudmouth, “saying the unsayable” as such trash merchants like to market themselves as they simultaneously stir the mob and build their brands.  Rosie watches Rook, a wide smile on her face. Rosie knows that Rook’s views are extreme, but people like her have such a way of saying them that makes it feel impossible to turn away. Davies’ point is how easy it can be to go from transfixed to voting booth—as Donald Trump proved. Extremity, the voicing of extremity, is the snacky basis of the seduction....
    Officials from the Army Corps of Engineers are privately saying a large proposed gold and copper mine in Alaska isn’t dead despite prominent Republicans, including Donald Trump Jr., urging the White House to block it. Earlier this week, it seemed like those Republican opponents had succeeded in stalling the project. The Corps, in a letter made public Monday, asked developers of the proposed Pebble Mine to take significant additional measures before it can be permitted to compensate for harms the mine will have on wetlands and streams. Opponents called the requirements near-impossible. A senior Corps official, however, recently sought to assuage conservative groups’ fears that the project, which would be the largest gold and copper mine in North America, is off track. Ryan Fisher, a principal deputy assistant secretary of the Army who oversees the Corps, told a meeting of conservatives this week hosted by Americans for Tax Reform...
    After co-creator Frank Darabont departed The Walking Dead shortly before filming on season 2, so did I — the series was never quite the same without the Stephen King-adoring, 16mm-shooting auteur filmmaker at the wheel. That means I missed Rick traversing dystopian America with his son, the introduction of Michonne, the spinning off of Fear the Walking Dead, Steven Yeun’s gorgeous mug getting hit in the face with a baseball bat, and everything else I’ve gleaned from reading recaps. The main series has now been on for 10 seasons, going on 11 when it returns this fall, and so much time has passed since I was a dedicated Walking Dead viewer that it’s now time for babies to get their turn with the franchise. Premiering at the 2020 San Diego Comic-Con, the trailer for The Walking Dead: World Beyond imagines a new generation born into the zombie apocalypse and yearning...
    A black college student charged with shooting dead a 17-year-old white girl says he fired in self-defense but his lawyers argue Georgia's 'stand your ground' law isn't been applied in his case because of his race.  Marc Wilson, 21, has been jailed since mid-June on charges of felony murder and aggravated assault over the June 14 shooting death of Haley Hutcheson in Statesboro in southeast Georgia. Wilson has argued he fired his licensed handgun in self-defense after Hutcheson and her friends in a pickup truck yelled racial slurs and tried to run him and his white girlfriend off the road.  Hutcheson was struck in the head by a bullet and died hours later in hospital.   The defense team representing Wilson, who is the son of a black father and white mother, say the college student is being treated differently because of his skin color.   They fear that Georgia's self-defense laws, which allow people...
    Buster Posey misses third workout at Giants camp The Best Kids’ Face Masks They’ll Actually Wear The office isn’t dead yet, even if remote work keeps rising, says Moody’s IN ONE CHART © Getty Images The skyline of New York City. Office space in big cities might face a reckoning from the coronavirus, but it won’t happen overnight. Load Error That’s because while U.S. urban areas were particularly hard-hit by the pandemic early on, even buildings that are sitting largely vacant now typically have long-term leases in place that put tenants on the hook for rent over roughly a decade. Building owners often also have 10-year fixed-rate mortgages, which over the past decade have been set at historically low rates, giving property owners more wiggle room to sort through the shocks of COVID-19. Those are key takeaways of a new report from credit-rating firm Moody’s Investors Service on...
