    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is facing right-wing criticism after responding to weekend protests that ended up outside the homes of Supreme Court Justices John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh. In a Monday tweet, Psaki said President Joe Biden “strongly believes in the Constitutional right to protest. But that should never include violence, threats, or vandalism.” She added that judges should not be fearing for their “personal safety.” “Judges perform an incredibly important function in our society, and they must be able to do their jobs without concern for their personal safety.” [email protected] strongly believes in the Constitutional right to protest.

    Getty Doc Rivers head coach of the Philadelphia 76ers. Without the services of Joel Embiid, the Philadelphia 76ers geared up for the second-round matchup with the Miami Heat, just trying to stay afloat. The news continues to be optimistic regarding the All-Star center’s injury, but his potential return is not set in stone. Heading into Game 1, head coach Doc Rivers had a decision to make with his starting lineup. There were multiple avenues he could have gone at the starting center spot but opted to go with his veteran. After not playing against the Toronto Raptors in round one, DeAndre Jordan got the start for Philly against Miami. Fans have never been high on Jordan since he arrived in Philly, and their displeasure was on full display throughout the course of the game. The veteran big man played 17 minutes in Game 1 and had a +/- of -17. Sixers Twitter did not hold back airing out Jordan for his lackluster showing against the Heat. DeAndre Jordan doesn't move let alone jump. The fact that he's playing...

    Former President Donald Trump attacked Colin Powell the day after the former Secretary of State’s passing. It’s been one day since Powell’s family announced his death from Covid-related complications. While Powell’s death has drawn a great deal of public grief from most, Trump marked the occasion by lashing out at Powell’s Iraq decision-making, calling him a RINO, and offering a clearly sarcastic wish that he rest in peace. Wonderful to see Colin Powell, who made big mistakes on Iraq and famously, so-called weapons of mass destruction, be treated in death so beautifully by the Fake News Media. Hope that happens to me someday. He was a classic RINO, if even that, always being the first to attack other Republicans. He made plenty of mistakes, but anyway, may he rest in peace. Given the chance to be gracious about someone’s death, or say nothing at all, Trump takes a decidedly different route pic.twitter.com/HMgFAiiRcK — Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) October 19, 2021 Trump’s successor, President Joe Biden, eulogized Powell yesterday by saluting him in a statement and saying he “embodied the...
    A Sacramento judge refused Thursday to block Gov. Gavin Newsom from telling voters that the Sept. 14 recall election was organized by “Republicans and Trump supporters.” In a final ruling, Sacramento Superior Court Judge Laurie Earl said Newsom’s proposed statement for the voter information handbook did not violate election law. She came to the same conclusion in an earlier, tentative decision prior to a hearing. “The Court finds there is nothing false or misleading about describing the recall effort’s leaders as Trump supporters,” Earl wrote. Recall leaders charged in a lawsuit that Newsom was lying in his ballot statement because not all recall supporters and candidates vying to replace Newsom were Republicans. During a hearing Thursday, the recall backers also claimed Newsom lied when he said they were “abusing our recall laws.” Earl disagreed, saying there was “an argument that this recall is an abuse of a perfectly legal process.” “The recall is being held less than three years after a sizable majority of California voters elected Newsom Governor,” she noted. Reasonable minds may disagree on the propriety of...
    MADRID (AP) — Spain’s Guardia Civil said Thursday it has arrested an Algerian man suspected of leading a gang that trafficked people from North Africa to Europe and sent fighters to jihadist groups in Libya. The Guardia Civil’s intelligence service detained the man on the night of July 31 on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca. He faces terror charges, a Guardia Civil statement said. It did not identify him by name. The man is believed to have led, from Europe, a human trafficking gang in North Africa, according to the statement. He is also suspected of facilitating the movement of jihadist fighters to Libya from Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia, using the revenue from the group’s human trafficking activities. Authorities also suspect the trafficking organization has sent terrorists from Algeria to Spain, and some of them have been arrested, the statement said, without providing further details. Interpol and Algeria cooperated in the Algerian man’s arrest. He had several identity documents and moved around frequently, it said. The investigation is continuing and more arrests may be made, police said. Copyright © 2021...

    A Texas attorney has come under fire for telling an Asian man there may be an opening at the Wuhan laboratory after he shared his story of being laid-off from Tesla last week.  Charlie Liu wrote that he left his job for an offer at Tesla earlier this year, but after a delayed start, the company told him 'the position was no longer needed.' 'I did not fail my background check, nor did I ever act in any manner that would cause a company to rescind their offer like this,' the post said.

    Adem Altan/AFP, Getty In a statement issued on Armenian Remembrance Day, President Joe Biden officially recognized the ethnic cleansing of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire as a genocide, the first U.S. president to do so. In a swift response, Turkey’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs denounced the statement “in the strongest terms.” Turkey denounced Biden’s use of the word genocide for the massacres and oppression of about 1.5 million Armenians as having no “scholarly or legal basis.” They also accused President Biden of caving to pressure from “radical Armenian circles and anti-Turkey groups.” “With regards to the events of 1915, none of the conditions required for the use of the term ‘genocide’ that is strictly defined in international law are met,” the statement reads, later adding that “the US President’s statement will not yield any results other than polarizing the nations and hindering peace and stability in our region.” The ministry says that Biden isn’t “morally authorized to judge historical matters” and asks him to “correct this grave mistake” which they claim only serves “the agenda of those circles that try...

    New York (CNN Business)For more than two decades, Amazon has bulldozed over bricks-and-mortar businesses, hired and churned through vast numbers of workers and even pitted cities against each other to bid for its second headquarters, all in service to its seemingly bottomless thirst for growth and satisfying customers. Its dominance was only further cemented in the last year by the pandemic, as households across the country leaned on the company for deliveries.But if the company's recent public statements are any indication, a small town in Alabama now has the tech giant on edge.In the last week-and-a-half, as a milestone union election at an Amazon warehouse in Bessemer, Alabama, came to a close, the company openly antagonized lawmakers and some behind the union effort. Amazon (AMZN) executive Dave Clark swiped at Bernie Sanders ahead of a rally the Senator was joining with some organizing workers in Alabama last month. "I often say we are the Bernie Sanders of employers, but that's not quite right because we actually deliver a progressive workplace," he said on Twitter. Clark also emphasized Amazon's $15 hourly...
