    By The Associated Press ZAGREB, Croatia — President Zoran Milanovic of Croatia wants his country to follow Turkey’s example by trying to block Sweden and Finland from joining NATO. Milanovic is in a bitter verbal dispute with Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic over a number of issues, including whether to support the NATO applications Sweden and Finland submitted on Wednesday. Before Croatia’s parliament ratifies NATO membership for the two Nordic nations, Milanovic wants a change of neighboring Bosnia’s electoral law that would make it easer for Bosnian Croats to get their representatives elected to leadership positions. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan reiterated Wednesday that NATO’s enlargement would depend on Finland and Sweden showing respect to Turkish sensitivities concerning terrorism. __ KEY DEVELOPMENTS IN THE RUSSIA-UKRAINE WAR: — Ukraine hopes to swap steel mill fighters for Russian POWs — Russian soldier pleads guilty at Ukraine war crimes trial — Will Turkey upend NATO expansion?

    Trump has made a significant mark on this year's Republican primaries by endorsing dozens of candidates for state and local office Donald Trump is celebrating a 'big night' for the candidates he backed in Tuesday's primary elections - while seemingly ignoring the fact that one of his closest allies in Congress, Rep. Madison Cawthorn, was handed a devastating loss. In a Wednesday morning Truth Social post, the former president lauded Pennsylvania Republican primary candidates Dr. Mehmet Oz and Doug Mastriano, while also congratulating North Carolina's Rep. Ted Budd for winning his Senate primary race. However, no word on the 26-year-old firebrand Republican who Trump had endorsed twice, including imploring voters on Monday to give Cawthorn a 'second chance' despite the litany of scandals he's faced in recent weeks. 'A big night for Trump Endorsed candidates last night. Dr Oz looks to have own despite the fact that my endorsement was put out after many mail-in ballots had already been sent,' Trump wrote on his social media platform. 'It's called a come from behind victory. Looks to be, over last few...
    By Chris Megerian | Associated Press BUFFALO — President Joe Biden on Tuesday condemned the poison of white supremacy and said the nation must “reject the lie” of the racist “replacement theory” espoused by the shooter who murdered 10 black Americans in Buffalo. Speaking to victims’ families, local officials and first responders, Biden said America’s diversity is its strength and the nation must not be be distorted by a “hateful minority.” “In America, evil will not win, I promise you,” Biden said. “Hate will not prevail, white supremacy will not have the last word.” Biden spoke after he and first lady Jill Biden paid their respects Tuesday at a makeshift memorial of blossoms, candles and messages of condolence outside the Tops supermarket, where on Saturday a young man armed with an assault rifle targeted Black people in the deadliest racist attack in the U.S. since Biden took office. In Buffalo, the president was confronting anew the forces of hatred he frequently says called him back to seek the White House. “Jill and I have come to stand with you, and...

    COLOMBO, Sri Lanka — As the guests sat down for a banquet dinner last summer at the grand colonial-era home of Sri Lanka’s president, the small talk soon turned gravely serious. Addressing members of the ruling coalition, the country’s energy minister, Udaya Gammanpila, defended a small increase in fuel prices that was intended to address a critical shortage of dollars the island nation needed to import fuel, medicine and other necessities. The president, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, and his brother Mahinda, the prime minister, had come on board with the measure after a year of discussion. But another member of the family — Basil, the finance minister, one of five Rajapaksas in the Cabinet — had other ideas. Before the guests made their way to the dance floor, Basil Rajapaksa rose to declare that Sri Lanka was not in fact suffering from a foreign currency crisis, according to Gammanpila and another person present. Criminals, he claimed, were funneling dollars out of the country’s banking system. Give him two weeks, he said, and he would fix it. He would not. Nearly a year...
    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Saturday led a delegation of Republican lawmakers to Kyiv and met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Video shared by Zelensky shows him greeting the GOP delegation on a street in Kyiv, which remains firmly in Ukrainian control nearly two months after Russia launched its invasion of the country. The video showed McConnell, who represents the state of Kentucky, and senators Susan Collins of Maine, John Barrasso of Wyoming and John Cornyn of Texas greeting Zelensky.  McConnell said on Thursday that the Senate needs to pass a new aid package for Ukraine immediately, after the House of Representatives this week approved $40 billion in new assistance for Kyiv. Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskiy welcomes U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) and Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) in Kyiv on Saturday 'I strongly support the next package of lethal military assistance, which the House has passed with an overwhelming bipartisan majority. I hope the Senate can reach an agreement to consider and pass this legislation today. The Ukrainians need it....
    Host Alex Marlow has an action-packed opening monologue today. Alex discusses the Senate’s failed effort to pass a radical abortion bill, the latest on Attorney General Merrick Garland’s lawless approach to the harassment of Supreme Court justices, the horrific baby formula crisis that is sweeping the nation, and scary inflation data that exceeded prognosticators’ expectations. Meanwhile, Democrats and Republicans alike are cutting huge checks to Ukraine even though we don’t really know where all that money is going. Bizarre or maybe entirely typical. Alex also touches on the intriguing and mysterious Kathy Barnette candidacy in the Pennsylvania U.S. Senate race. All that and much more in the opening. We have two terrific guests today. First is Heritage Foundation Fellow Tom Homan, who was acting ICE Director under President Trump during the years the former President was focused on immigration. Tom is heading up a new initiative that is designed to solidify a game plan on illegal immigration that Republicans can implement if they retake the Congressional majority in November. He correctly frames the issue as non-partisan. Then, J.D. Vance returns...
    Host Alex Marlow opens today’s podcast with a breakdown of President Trump’s first failed endorsement of the year, the Republican governor primary in Nebraska. Then, Alex delves into a big speech from President Biden in which Biden blames pretty much everyone but himself for inflation. Biden also coined a new term: “Ultra MAGA.” What does it mean? No one really knows, but that won’t stop him from repeating it over and over. He also provided no solutions to our economic crisis. Plus, Dr. Mehmet Oz cut an odd video of himself shooting guns poorly. It’s a good thing that a guy who at one point supported red flag laws is pandering to gun rights supporters, but we’re not sure the video makes sense in the current moment of authenticity; but we shall see. Also, Elon Musk invited President Trump back to Twitter, which is a strong power move because Trump has already said he won’t go back on the platform. And then, the White House is supporting illegal protests at Supreme Court Justices’ homes. All that and more in Alex’s...
    A federal judge released former President Trump from a civil contempt finding but ordered him to pay $110,000 in fines for failing to comply with a subpoena to turn over several financial documents to state Attorney General Letitia James. Judge Arthur Engeron said the contempt charge would be lifted only if certain conditions are met - including that the former president's team provides the court with a description of the Trump Organization's document retention and destruction policy and reviewing the remaining five boxes tied to Trump at an off-storage facility by May 20, according to CNN.  Engeron agreed that Trump could place the $110,00 fine in an escrow account until his appeal of the contempt ruling is completed.  'I want the fine paid. That fine is now $110,000,' the judge told Trump's attorney.  If Trump fails to comply with the fee, the judge said he will bring back the contempt finding.  Engeron had issued the contempt finding on April 25 and slapped the former president with a $10,000 a day fine for every day he held out financial documents from James' investigation...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki turned to sarcasm when Fox News White House correspondent Alexandria Hoff asked if President Joe Biden was wrong to tie Republicans to Sen. Rick Scott‘s plan to raise taxes on more than half of Americans. During a speech on the economy Tuesday, the president described Scott’s plan unflatteringly, and said  “I can’t believe that the majority of Republicans buy on to Scott’s plan. But that’s a plan in writing, and he’s in the leadership.” Some have defended Republicans from Biden’s attack on the basis that many Republicans — like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — vocally oppose Scott’s plan. The Washington Post noted that Scott’s plan “does technically exist on paper — at a time when there are few competing policy platforms issued by congressional Republicans,” even as they delivered a rating of “Three Pinocchios” for a different Biden statement laying the plan at the feet of “congressional Republicans.” But Biden and his administration reason that it’s a fair attack because Scott is the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), and the plan has been...

    Former Defense Secretary Mark Esper defended himself on Fox News on Wednesday as a “Reagan Republican” who opposed former President Donald Trump’s “offensive style and failed elections.” Esper, who came out with a book on Tuesday, said on Fox News’ Fox & Friends that Trump’s style was “unnecessarily coarse and divisive.” “And what you need in a president, because I’m a Reagan Republican, you need a president that will bring people together, that can unite the country, that can lead,” he continued. “And if you’re Republican like I am, you want somebody that can grow the base. And the only way you can advance core Republican policies is if you grow the base, win the country and win elections. You have to win elections.” Esper, who served as Pentagon chief between July 2019 and November 2020, criticized Trump in his book, A Sacred Oath: Memoirs of a Secretary of Defense During Extraordinary Times. It included numerous revelations such as Trump wanting to launch missile strikes into Mexico to stop illegal drug labs and Trump wanting to shoot protesters in 2020....
    Former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper stated on Monday he believes former President Donald Trump was a threat to democracy. Esper has authored a new book about his time in the administration, A Sacred Oath. During his appearance on Special Report with Bret Baier, the host cited an excerpt in Esper’s book where he recounts Trump suggesting protestors be shot in their legs. Baier then aired a clip from Esper’s 2019 Senate confirmation hearing. Esper stated at the time he would “absolutely” resign if he were ever asked to engaged in wrongdoing. “There are points in this book where you clearly write you had crossed that Rubicon, and you don’t resign,” Baier stated. Esper replied by saying he had never personally done anything untoward. “I said I would never do anything illegal, immoral, or unethical” Esper said. “You clearly suggest you were being asked to,” said Baier. “It was being suggested by the president and we successfully pushed back on that,” he answered. Later, Baier asked, “Do you think Donald Trump was a threat to democracy?” “I think that given...
    By Krishan Francis, Bharatha Mallawarachi and Krutika Pathi | Associated Press COLOMBO, Sri Lanka — Sri Lankan Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa resigned Monday following weeks of protests demanding that he and his brother, the president, step down for dragging the country into its worst economic crisis in decades. Rajapaksa said on Twitter that he submitted his resignation to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, a move that followed a violent attack by government supporters on the protesters, prompting authorities to deploy armed troops in the capital, Colombo. There was no immediate comment from the president’s office. For more than a month, protests have spread across the country, drawing people across ethnicities, religions and class. For the first time middle-class Sri Lankans also took to the streets in large numbers, marking a dramatic revolt by many former Rajapaksa supporters, some of whom have spent weeks protesting outside the president’s office. The protests have sparked a political reckoning, with the government facing a no-confidence motion in Parliament, and underscored a dramatic fall from favor of the Rajapaksas, Sri Lanka’s most powerful political dynasty for decades....
    By The Associated Press UNITED NATIONS — The United Nations chief says he is “appalled” at the reported attack on a school in the Ukrainian town of Bilohorivka, where many people were apparently seeking shelter from fighting. A U.N. spokesman said Sunday that Secretary-General Antonio Guterres reiterates that civilians and civilian infrastructure must be spared under international law. Spokesman Stephane Dujarric says: “This war must end, and peace must be established in line with the Charter of the United Nations and international law. The United Nations and its humanitarian partners in Ukraine will continue supporting those whose lives have been shattered by war.” ___ KEY DEVELOPMENTS IN THE RUSSIA-UKRAINE WAR: — Dozens of Ukrainians feared dead after Russian strike on school — Patriotism, unease mix in Russia ahead of big Victory Day celebrations — G-7 leaders call Ukraine’s president, vow to ban or cut back on Russian oil imports — Jill Biden makes surprise Mother’s Day visit to Ukraine, meets first lady there — Ukrainian volunteers work to craft body armor, camouflage nets for soldiers Follow all AP stories on...
    Josh Wingrove | Bloomberg The United States banned American accounting and consulting firms from working with Russia and imposed its first sanctions on Gazprombank as part of a package of new penalties targeted at Moscow. The latest penalties also include new export controls on industrial goods, limits on three of Russia’s top state-controlled television stations and additional visa restrictions, a U.S. official told reporters Sunday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to detail the measures before they became public. The U.S. and its allies are pushing to expand sanctions ahead of Russia’s May 9 Victory Day military parade marking the end of World War II in Europe. The celebration has become a touchstone of the Kremlin’s campaign to whip up public support for the invasion and is likely to feature a speech by President Vladimir Putin on Russia’s “special operation” in Ukraine. President Joe Biden and other Group of Seven leaders met virtually Sunday with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, a symbolic nod to unity on the anniversary of the allied victory over Nazi Germany in 1945. The G-7 pledged...
    By ANDREA RODRÍGUEZ HAVANA (AP) — A powerful explosion apparently caused by a natural gas leak Friday killed at least eight people and injured 40 when it blew away outer walls from a five-star hotel in the heart of Cuba’s capital. No tourists were staying at the 96-room Hotel Saratoga because it was undergoing renovations, Havana Gov. Reinaldo García Zapata told the Communist Party newspaper Granma. “It has not been a bomb or an attack. It is a tragic accident,” President Miguel Díaz-Canel, who visited the site, said in a tweet. The blast sent smoke billowing into the air around the hotel with people on the street staring in awe, one saying “Oh my God,” and cars honking their horns as they sped away from the scene, video showed. It happened as Cuba is struggling to revive its key tourism sector that was devastated by the coronavirus pandemic. Cuba’s national health minister, José Ángel Portal, told The Associated Press that hospitals had received about 40 injured people, but estimated that the number could rise as the search continues for people...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki rebutted leading anti-abortion pastor Dr. Albert Mohler‘s criticism of President Joe Biden’s abortion stance by citing a Fox News poll. Mohler criticized Biden’s remarks about the draft Supreme Court decision that would strike down Roe v. Wade, telling listeners that Biden “does not trust the American people to make this decision” — referring to the decision whether or not to ban women from choosing to have an abortion legally. At the White House briefing Wednesday, Christian journalist Mona Austin of The Slice News brought Mohler’s critique to Psaki, who responded with a Fox News poll that she asserted demonstrates Mohler is an “outlier” on the issue: MS. AUSTIN: Okay. And then real quick on abortion: A Christian conservative — his name is Albert Mohler — has commented on President Biden’s stance in an unusual position on abortion. I’m now quoting. He said that, “He and his administration do not trust the public in various areas to have the right to determine whether or not abortion should be legal in that area or not.” So, he’s essentially saying...
    Today’s podcast is co-hosted by Master Marlow, Jr., host Alex Marlow’s two-year-old son, who hangs out in studio and chimes in throughout the opening monologue. But a lot of news is still covered. Joe Biden, aka President Unity, declared that the “MEGA” (as opposed to “MAGA”) movement is the most dangerous and radical of any in recent history. Alex plays the insane clips. Still, Biden’s intensity doesn’t compare to Massachusetts’s Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s, who sounds absolutely maniacal on the issue of limitless abortion. Alex also names the companies that will reimburse their employees if they get abortions. Anything for the corporation – even killing your children. Alex also breaks down the latest economic news, from the Fed raising interest rates to Biden getting credit for being fiscally responsible only because he has failed to pass his bloated spending agenda to the trade deficit expanding to a ridiculous $100 billion for the first time ever. All of this is pushing an inflation spiral that won’t subside. That is, as they say, “problematic” for President Big Joey. Our guests today are Carrie...
    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky slammed Russia for using Nazi propaganda media tactics as Moscow continues to falsely justify their invasion of Ukraine. Zelensky gave an interview to Fox News’ Griff Jenkins this week, hitting back at how Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov recently compared him to Adolf Hitler. Russia has repeatedly pushed the false claim that their invasion is a Ukrainian de-Nazification campaign, and even though Zelensky is Jewish, Lavrov tried to dismiss that inconvenient detail by saying that “Hitler also had Jewish blood.” “These are the showings of chauvinism and nationalism,” Zelensky said in response to Lavrov. “They are following the same concept of [Nazi propaganda minister Joseph] Goebbels and using the same methodology, and the reaction I think is to weaken the world to these phrases of Lavrov.” Zelensky’s retort comes after the Israeli government publicly condemned Lavrov’s remarks. The interview with Jenkins went on as Zelensky once again scoffed at world leaders who commemorated Holocaust Remembrance Day, but refuse to say “never again” to Russia’s invasion. As Zelensky spoke about the devastation of Mariupol, he switched from...
