    Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas cannot say for certain that none of the 42 illegal aliens on the FBI Terrorism Watch List and No-Fly List, apprehended at the United States-Mexico border last year, were released into American communities. During a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, Mayorkas said he did not know exactly where any illegal aliens accused of terrorism or having terrorism ties had been released into the U.S. interior after being apprehended at the southern border in 2021. The exchange with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) went as follows: JORDAN: Secretary, have any of the 42 illegal migrants on the Terrorist Watch List or No-Fly List encountered at our southwest border been released into the United States? [Emphasis added] MAYORKAS: Ranking member Jordan, as I mentioned before, I will provide that data to you. With respect to the disposition of each one, I do not know the answer to your question.

Subscribe to our print magazine.For years, concerns have been mounting in the press and among Senate staffers about California Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s cognitive abilities. A report published in the San Francisco Chronicle today—featuring interviews with four US senators, three former Feinstein staffers, and a Democratic congressperson from California—reveals more about the 88-year-old’s potential inability to legislate. The sources interviewed by the Chronicle said that Feinstein’s deteriorating memory made it impossible for her to do her job without heavily relying on staff. “It’s bad, and it’s getting worse,” one Democratic senator told the Chronicle. The sources recounted instances of Feinstein forgetting recent conversations or failing to recognize people she had known for years. At a memorial address for Port of San Francisco Commissioner Anne Halsted, Feinstein reportedly forgot to mention the woman who had died. When staffers told her that she needed to speak again, she referred to Halsted in the present tense. Feinstein rose to prominence as mayor of San Francisco after George Moscone’s assassination...
    CHICAGO (WLS) -- When Paxlovid was authorized for emergency use by the FDA last December, the at-home COVID pill was considered a major step forward in the fight against the virus.Yet, the drug is now sitting on shelves across the Chicago area."We have a ton of Paxlovid right now, so patients can book an appointment come see us discuss treatment options and can walk home with a prescription in hand," said Jayme Sibley, medical director at Innovative Express Care.Despite the supply, Innovative Express Care has only dispensed 20 doses during the last three weeks.Northwestern Medicine Immediate Care locations also have not seen a big demand for it.RELATED | Phase 2, 3 trial for Pfizer pill for COVID begins in children ages 6 to 17"There's a fair amount of barriers that limit people to get it," said Dr. Sindhu Aderson, central regional director at Northwestern Medicine Immediate Care.The barriers include seeing a doctor to get a prescription, since Paxlovid cannot be taken with certain medications."There are significant interactions," Aderson said.

    A top Kremlin adviser has broken ranks to call for a ceasefire in Ukraine as he blasted the invasion as 'embarrassing' for Russia. Andrey Kortunov said 'many of us are depressed' in an extraordinary intervention, after Vladimir Putin made his country a pariah on the international stage. The foreign policy expert, who is the director general of the Russian International Affairs Council and sits on a panel which advises the Kremlin, said he does not understand the rationale behind the invasion. He told Sky News: 'I was shocked because for a long time, I thought that a military operation was not feasible. It was not plausible.   'My advice today, given the current situation on the ground, would be to turn a ceasefire into the top priority. We have to stop the conflict.'

    A plurality of Americans say Democrats in Congress have accomplished less than they expected this year, a Politico/Morning Consult poll released this week found. The survey asked respondents to reveal their thoughts on the job performance of Democrats in Congress. “Thinking about congressional Democrats’ agenda and what they have been able to do since taking full control of the U.S. Congress in January 2021, which of the following is closest to your opinion, even if none is exactly right?” it asked. A plurality, 41 percent, said Democrats in Congress have accomplished less than they expected, compared to ten percent who said Democrats have accomplished more than anticipated. About one-third, 32 percent, said Democrats have accomplished “about what I expected.” Similarly, a plurality of respondents, 42 percent, said President Biden has accomplished “less than” expected in his first year, with just 11 percent indicating that he has surpassed their expectations. Thirty-eight percent said he accomplished about what they expected.  The survey follows the left’s failure to pass Biden’s multitrillion-dollar Build Back Better Act, which moderate Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV)...
    “One of the hosts of 'The View' was like, ‘What hubris for Sarah Silverman to accuse a black woman of not reading,’ Oy! Jesus H— What the f— I f***ing— I surrender! Good grief!" Silverman continued. "I cannot believe I need to say this, but I did not criticize Joy Ann because she’s black, but because she’s a Harvard-educated journalist with the responsibility ideally of showing the whole picture and not just a piece of a picture." After noting the complexities of political journalism — that opinions are often mixed together with news — Silverman lamented that most news is tainted with bias. "Where do I get just the plain old news?” Silverman asked. “I need a news outlet that’s just the facts, something that I can draw my own opinion. It’s just facts, and then I draw my own opinion on it. That’d be so nice. I’d like to draw my own conclusions sometimes. I mean, I’m interested in other people’s thoughts, but, um, it can’t only be that.” “And good grief!” she continued. “You dare criticize anything in...
              moreby Antoinette Aho   The American Medical Association (AMA) and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) have jointly published a language guide that tells readers to no longer use the words “handicapped,” “morbidly obese,” or “homeless.” Rather, the document, “Advancing Health Equity: A Guide to Language, Narrative and Concepts,” stipulates that these terms should be referred to as “people who are experiencing (condition or disability type).” For years, Campus Reform has reported on language guides in higher education, from the University of New Hampshire’s ‘Bias Free’ guide in 2015 to Florida International University’s 2021 ‘Inclusive Language’ recommendations. Professional institutions began creating their own versions only a few years later. For example, in September, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published a “non-stigmatizing language guide.” That CDC guide suggests replacing “smokers” with “people who smoke” and “alcoholics” with “persons with alcohol use disorder.” Similar to the AMA’s guide, they recommend swapping “homeless people” for “people experiencing homelessness” or “persons who are not securely housed.” Likewise, AMA’s “Advancing Health Equity” provides an “[e]quity-focused alternative” for commonly used terminology. Physicians and medical students are told to...

    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.,” Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) stated, “progressives cannot govern, and that is what was evident yesterday, when Nancy Pelosi failed to bring the bipartisan infrastructure bill to the floor.” Malliotakis stated, “I think a lot of Republicans are walking around saying what we in New York know, that progressives cannot govern, and that is what was evident yesterday, when Nancy Pelosi failed to bring the bipartisan infrastructure bill to the floor. I’m of the belief that that bill needs to come to the floor in a separate vote. And the fact that the progressive socialists are threatening to sink everything, including that infrastructure bill that has money for roads and bridges and seaports and coastal infrastructure and sewer and water infrastructure. Because they are holding out for their socialist wish list.” She added, “[Y]ou can’t cave to the socialist wing of the party. That has been Democrats’ mistake here, giving them too much power and say.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    Fox News anchor Bret Baier on Tuesday called out Republicans downplaying the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol and said, “You cannot watch this testimony and say that is not a big deal.” Following the conclusion of the three-and-a-half hearing by the U.S. House select committee investigating the attack, anchors John Roberts and Sandra Smith opened with a quick recap of the first hearing by the select committee investigating that January tragedy. Moments later, Baier gave his take on the hearing, which he said he “watched every minute” of. “If you were watching you saw compelling, at times damning, emotional testimony from these four officers who fought the line to try to protect the Capitol and the lawmakers inside,” he said. “For anybody watching who looked at that and looked at the videos and their testimony about that day and thought it was not violent I think that was an eye-opener.” “We obviously talked about January 6 a lot in the time since then but putting it all together and seeing it again is jarring,” he continued. “And to...
    Protesters took to the streets of a North Carolina city on Thursday night, demanding for the second night in a row that officers release body camera footage from the fatal shooting of a black man.  Andrew Brown, 42, was shot and killed in his car at around 8:30am on Wednesday in Elizabeth City, 160 miles east of Raleigh. Police described Brown as someone who was well known to police, and said they were executing search-and-arrest warrants for drug offenses at the time. His family, however, describe the father-of-ten as a 'good guy', despite his 'flaws' - and are demanding the body camera footage.

    House Judiciary Committee member Burgess Owens, R-Utah, said on Wednesday that Stacey Abrams' claim that the Georgia voter ID law is racist is an "insult" to Black people. GOP SENATORS GRILL STACEY ABRAMS ON HER TRUE FEELINGS ON VOTER SECURITY MEASURES BURGESS OWENS: ...the greatest threat to Democrats is American people, no matter what color, who are part of the middle class. Those people who are no longer dependent on the government. They have faith, they have a vision for their family.  ... They look for it because they understand and experience the American dream. The greatest threat. And that’s why they do not want black people to experience that, and that’s why they’re tearing down and burning down businesses every single year in their communities that are trying to reach that middle class. So to say that black people cannot get an ID is an insult. We’re as smart, as tenacious, as desirous of independence as anyone else. If anyone says that, who says that’s not the truth, is pure racist. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE FULL INTERVIEWThis article was...

Breasia Terrell went missing after spending the night with her half-brother and his father on July 10, the Des Moines Register reported. Her body was found north of DeWitt by a fisherman in the woods, according to the Register. “We grieve alongside Breasia’s family and the community,” Davenport Police Chief Paul Sikorski said. “What’s important to know is this: the work of our investigators is not over. ...

    President Biden said Thursday he is committed to transparency and will allow the media into migrant detention facilities at the U.S.-Mexico border, but couldn’t answer when that may occur. During his first press conference in office, Biden was asked by NBC’s White House correspondent Kristin Welker whether he would commit to allowing media access into the migrant facilities  "I will commit when my plan very shortly is underway to let you have access to not just them but to other facilities as well," Biden responded. Welker pressed Biden on whether he will commit to full transparency of not just facilities of the administration’s choosing, but also facilities with children "packed together" under poor conditions." BIDEN SAYS MIGRANT FAMILIES APPREHENDED AT BORDER 'SHOULD ALL BE GOING BACK' Biden reiterated that he will commit to transparency once he is "in a position" to "implement what we’re doing right now." Biden added he has not visited the border since taking office because he doesn’t want to become "the issue," and "get in the way" with the logistics of bringing his security detail along with him. "You’ll have...

Now that the economy is coming back, employers face a new problem — not enough workers. KDKA investigator Andy Sheehan looks into why employers now can’t fill positions. READ MORE: Pittsburgh Group Bringing Awareness To Rise Of Anti-Asian Attacks After a year of shutdowns and indoor dining restrictions, the lunchtime crowd at the Juniper Grill in Cranberry is picking up. The problem now is a shortage of cooks, bartenders and waitstaff to serve them. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Pat McDonnell with Atria’s Restaurants. “We have eight restaurants and we need employees at all eight restaurants.” Employers throughout the region have the same lament.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — More than 100,000 doses of the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine are heading to Illinois and are expected to arrive on Wednesday.
