    The first five seconds of a new Senate GOP attack ad against Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock of Georgia speak volumes. "Raphael Warnock: His personal story—inspirational," says an upbeat female narrator. "His story as a Senator is the problem." It’s the beginning of Senate Republicans’ effort to tell a story to voters about Warnock’s problematic record as a senator. But the ad is at once a complete anomaly for the GOP and yet totally "meh" unmemorable in substance. The highly notable part is the fact that Senate Republicans are actually trying to run an issue ad against a powerful person of color—a Black man at that. The ad says that Warnock votes with President Joe Biden 95% of the time, backs an energy bill that would supposedly push gas prices and utility bills "even higher," and warns his policies would "make us more dependent on foreign suppliers." It centers on issues that are actually relevant to people's lives—which is just plain weird for the GOP—but it's also not exactly sticky, as it were, for an opening salvo in their marquee race to...
    GOP Rep. Liz Cheney declared on Monday that House Republican leadership has enabled racism. "The House GOP leadership has enabled white nationalism, white supremacy, and anti-semitism. History has taught us that what begins with words ends in far worse. @GOP leaders must renounce and reject these views and those who hold them." Last year, Cheney was ousted from her post as House Republican conference chair.
    JACKSON State football coach Deion Sanders had two toes on his left foot amputated due to blood clots from a previous surgery. The Pro Football Hall of Fame revealed his foot injury on an episode of his documentary series Coach Prime that aired Tuesday night. 4Deion Sanders revealed that he had two toes amputated on his left foot after suffering from blood clots from a previous surgery 4Sanders was seen using a push scooter on the sidelines of games In the middle of the Tigers’ last season, Sanders was hospitalized for about a month. He was suffering from a dislocated toe with an inflamed nerve. He underwent a procedure in September, returning to the field on crutches. Using a push scooter, Sanders roamed the sidelines for games. However, as he healed, Sanders noticed his toes started to darken underneath the bandages. “They were talking about the amputation of toes,” he said. “Then they were talking about the amputation of my leg from the knee down. Then they were trying to ensure I had life.” Sanders, 54, underwent multiple surgeries. He...
    Vladimir Putin's closest advisers appeared perturbed when he dropped his bombshell about readying nuclear weapons yesterday. The expressions of army general Valery Gerasimov and defence minister Sergey Shoygu were caught on camera as the Russian president put his atomic arsenal on stand-by. A senior US defence official said last night Putin's step is 'potentially putting in play forces that if there's a miscalculation could make things much, much more dangerous'. Unsettled: Valery Gerasimov (left) and Sergey Shoygu pictured at yesterday's Kremlin press conference And a senior White House official described it as 'yet another escalatory and totally unnecessary step'. They said in a statement: 'At every step of this conflict, Putin has manufactured threats to justify more aggressive actions. 'He was never under threat from Ukraine or from Nato, which is a defensive alliance that will not fight in Ukraine. 'The only reason his forces face a threat today is because they invaded a sovereign country, and one without nuclear weapons.' Max Bergmann, a former State Department official, called Putin's talk predictable but dangerous sabre-rattling. 'Things could spiral out of...
    Tucker Carlson said democracy in the US was failing under Democrats and that the proof was in Baltimore, where the city embraced progressive criminal justice policies yet continues to have one of the highest murder rates in the nation.  During the opening of his show on Tuesday night, Carlson mocked recent conversations about democracy being in danger and instead said the real danger was when Democrats focus on issues like race and climate change rather than on the safety issues facing cities like Baltimore, which has seen more than 300 homicides a year since 2015.  Carlson called Baltimore 'one of the worst places in the western hemisphere,' which he likened to Haiti, after the city reported 32 murders so far in 2022.  'That's the deadliest January in Baltimore in nearly 50 years and remember, fifty years ago, Baltimore was almost twice as big as it is now,' Carlson said, referencing that the city's populations shrank from nearly 1 million residents in the 1970s to about 580,000 in 2020, according to the U.S. Census.   'Half the city is left. So Baltimore...
    American diplomats have expressed fears that any sanctions imposed on Russia over potential conflict in Ukraine would ultimately be ineffective due to the amount of Russian wealth in London. The US, UK and a host of other NATO countries have promised to impose harsh sanctions on Russia should President Vladimir Putin proceed with an invasion of neighbouring Ukraine, and have delivered arms shipments to bolster Ukrainian forces.  But US authorities are now concerned that Britain's threats to levy tough economic penalties against Putin are empty after years of allowing Russian kleptocrats to funnel what sources described as 'a hell of a lot of money' into 'Londongrad'. 'The fear is that Russian money is so entrenched in London now that the opportunity to use it as leverage against Putin could be lost,' a source in Washington told The Times. 'Biden is talking about sanctioning Putin himself but that can only be symbolic', the source asserted, claiming that billions in Russian cash is 'sitting in houses in Knightsbridge and Belgravia right under your government's noses.' It comes after a report by the...

    President Joe Biden admitted on Wednesday night that he wished his plan to send 500 million Covid-19 tests to people's homes came to him earlier - despite promising nearly three months ago to increase the supply by 'nearly 300 million.'  Just two days until Christmas, Americans nationwide are still waiting in long lines for Covid-19 tests and even longer for their results amid a massive spike in demand. Three major studies have already confirmed the Omicron variant is noticeably milder than Delta, the previous dominant strain. In the United Kingdom, Covid patients with Omicron were 20 to 25 percent less likely to need hospitalization, according to one study. Another paper found Omicron was up to 45 percent less likely to lead to hospitalization than Delta, based on 300,000 people in England. But Biden was forced to defend his administration's response to the highly-contagious Omicron variant as it rips through all 50 states. He told ABC host David Muir that 'nothing's been good enough' though repeated his and his top officials' line that nobody 'saw it coming' as rapidly as it...
    Two former White House chiefs of staff weighed in Wednesday against the idea of Joe Biden's chief of staff Ron Klain's active Twitter use – in a warning Klain would ignore just hours later, leaving White House trying to explain away his missive on inflation.  Josh Bolten, who served as chief of staff to President George W. Bush, noted in a panel discussion this week that he deliberately kept a low public profile, and said flatly Klain's public tweets weren't the best use of his time. 'I would never have done that. And frankly I don't know how he does it – how he actually keeps up with what he's supposed to be focused on, which I think he is keeping up, and doing all this public communicating at the same time,' he said in a discussion at American University's Sine Institute of Policy & Politics.  He spoke of how 'an errant tweet from Ron Klain can throw a news cycle spinning off in a bad direction.'  Former White House chiefs of staff Josh Bolten and Jack Lew warned against...
    Matthew McConaughey responded Thursday to Texas Democrat Beto O'Rourke's apparent shade at the actor for failing to be transparent on where he stands on major political issue, saying he was being cagy "on purpose." O'Rourke, a former Texas Senate candidate who is mulling a run for governor in 2022, recently complimented McConaughey's acting abilities but took a seeming shot at him as a political chameleon. "Sway" podcast host Kara Swisher asked him if he was surprised that McConaughey was polling so well in the race for governor, even though he's not a declared candidat, as surveys show him ahead of both O'Rourke and Republican Gov. Greg Abbott in hypothetical matchups. "No. He’s an incredibly – if you’re talking about McConaughey – he’s a really popular figure whose political views have not in any way been fixed," the former presidential candidate said.  "I don’t know, for example, who he voted for in the most consequential election since 1864 in this country," O'Rourke said. "I don’t know how he feels about any of the issues that we’ve brought up. I’m looking forward...
    Tom Daley has detailed his battle with bulimia, explaining how he would force himself to be sick in 2012 - the year of the London Olympics. Admitting to struggling with body issues - having spent most of his time in the spotlight in a pair of tiny swimming trunks - Tom, 27, told The Guardian: 'I used to make myself throw up, in 2012. I weigh myself every day. I’ve had a very strange relationship with food and my body image. 'I guess it is a mild form of [eating disorder]. Men always seem to not have eating disorders, and it’s hard to talk about it. But I would consider myself to be someone that has very much struggled with body image, and eating, and feeling guilty and shameful of the things that I eat. 'You're so naked, it's hard to be content with your body!' Tom Daley has opened up about his battle with bulimia and self-image after it was 'hammered' into him that he needed to lose weight 'You have these body issues as an athlete. Lots of...
    Caitlyn Jenner joined The View as a guest host on Tuesday and quickly clashed with Sunny Hostin over the media’s treatment of the Republican Party. Jenner, who said she would support Donald Trump’s 2024 bid and refused to admit he lost the 2020 election during her previous appearance on The View, claimed that she is “outside the box” when it comes to the GOP, adding that she is the “poster child for change.” Whoopi Goldberg went on to note that the GOP is struggling to attract younger voters, prompting Sarah Haines and Joy Behar to reason that Republicans would fail to gain votes from younger demographics if the party continues to deny climate change and vote against LGBTQ+ and abortion rights. “You have to think about the racial demographic because 45 percent of millennials are people of color. I think it’s Generation Z it’s 50 percent, those born after 1996, are people of color,” Hostin added. “Compared with 30 percent of Baby Boomers and the Republican party quite frankly has never really been great for people of color in modern times, and I just don’t know with the changing...
    The glamorous model wife of billionaire Pornhub tycoon Bernd Bergmair has today made an extraordinary public put down of her husband's site, as she urged him to think of the children who could be exposed to explicit videos.

    The Latino community, which contributed greatly with their vote to Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential race, has a list of demands and priorities that they hope the Democrat will fulfill if he wants to have their massive support again. Survey by survey, Latinos have shown that they are very clear about the issues that concern them, especially now that the COVID-19 pandemic has decimated this community more than any other and has placed them in a delicate economic situation. But the topics of interest go much further. Here is a list of the issues that the Biden Administration must address if it wants to repeat in 2024 with the favor of Latinos: 1) PANDEMIC: COVID-19 It has disproportionately hit communities of color, and Latinos want the new Administration to prioritize control of the pandemic during the first 100 days of government. According to official data, these minorities have registered three times as many infections as whites, with almost twice the number of deaths. This has highlighted persistent and widespread differences in the American healthcare system, where Latinos are at...
    DEAR ABBY: I have a dear friend I’ve known for 25 years and I consider to be family. We recently had a falling-out because I set some boundaries I feel are necessary for my own wellness as I grow into my 40s. The boundaries revolve around disrespectful or belittling speech. Jeanne Phillips  My friend is gay and excuses the disrespect as the way his community speaks among themselves. He often calls me the b-word in fun, as well as similar names. I have told him it hurts me, but he refuses to acknowledge it, dismissing it as “you know, since high school that’s how we talk.” He might show some restraint at times, but when he’s drinking (which is often), he reverts back to making cruel or hurtful comments.

    Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield doubled down on his plan to kneel during the national anthem despite being inundated with criticism by some fans. "No I don't have any regrets," Mayfield said during a media briefing. "I think you know, being in my position, which is a blessing, being you know, out on a platform where I can speak on issues that are just wrong. You know, right is right and wrong is wrong," he explained. "It's a human rights issue. It's been going on for a long time and I believe in that. It's nothing against the military, anyone who served. Anybody that knows my history knows I completely support the military and people that serve our country for the right reasons and do it for justice," Mayfield continued. "The people that don't know that, that's OK. Take your time. Just take a second to get to know me. You know, it's a human rights issue," he added. "There's right," Mayfield concluded, "and there's wrong."The league turns over After rejecting...
    Twitter suppressed another tweet sent from President Donald Trump on Tuesday, accusing the commander in chief of violating the platform's "abusive behavior" policy when he warned that attempts to set up an "autonomous zone" in Washington, D.C., would be "met with serious force." What are the details? President Trump wrote, "There will never be an 'Autonomous Zone' in Washington, D.C., as long as I'm your President. If they try they will be met with serious force!" Twitter covered the message with a label requiring users to click a button to read it with a warning that read, "We've placed a public policy interest notice on this Tweet for violating our policy against abusive behavior, specifically, the presence of a threat of harm against an identifiable group." During a riot Monday night outside the White House, protesters unsuccessfully tried to topple a statue of former U.S. President Andrew Jackson, attacked police, and vandalized property while declaring the area a "Black House Autonomous Zone" in an attempt to set up a...
    Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., praised President Trump's work for the black community Tuesday, telling "Your World with Neil Cavuto" that "the last three years of progress have been unprecedented in my lifetime." Scott spoke after Trump touted his record on African-American issues in an apparent response to concerns about his handling of ongoing protests related to the death of George Floyd. "My Admin has done more for the Black Community than any President since Abraham Lincoln," he tweeted. "Passed Opportunity Zones with @SenatorTimScott, guaranteed funding for HBCU’s, School Choice, passed Criminal Justice Reform, lowest Black unemployment, poverty, and crime rates in history." KAMALA HARRIS SAYS TRUMP COMBINES 'WORST OF' RICHARD NIXON AND GEORGE WALLACE Scott echoed the president's message while touting Trump's record. "The fact that we have secured permanent funding for HBCUs [historically black colleges and universities] under President Trump is something that was surprising, I think frankly, to the HBCUs [and] the United Negro College Fund," he said. "The president said clearly that the level of funding the last year was the highest ever. Think about the jobs created. Under this administration, we created over seven million jobs, two-thirds of those jobs went to minorities and to women. "We...
