    Kelly Clarkson is determined not to fork over any of her assets to her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock as the two continue to battle in court over the financial aspects of their divorce. The 39-year-old singer and talk show host won't 'even entertain the idea' of agreeing to a settlement with her 45-year-old ex, a source told Us Weekly on Wednesday.

    Unvaccinated Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers hinted his playing career may be coming to a close, and said he didn't think it 'would end like this' after stunning 13-10 loss to the 49ers Saturday.  Speaking after the shocking loss in Green Bay Saturday, Rogers said he felt. 'A little numb, for sure,' adding: 'I didn't think it was going to end like this.' Rodgers said he will take time to have conversations with 'people around here' and make a determination about his future before the start of free agency.  Following a loss in the divisional playoffs Saturday night at Lambeau Field, Rodgers' next move has never been more uncertain as he wrapped his 17th season with the Packers. 'I'm going to take some time and have conversations with the folks around here and then take some time away and make a decision - obviously before free agency,' Rodgers said Saturday postgame.  In an ESPN profile that was published Friday, Packers star Rodgers said he didn't think his career 'would end like this' after stunning 13-10 loss to the 49ers...
    If you were Joe Biden and you’d had a year like he’s had, you, too, would be looking for a scapegoat. That is, someone other than yourself to blame.   After all, your approval rating is averaging in the low 40s, and one poll found that a full 70 percent of Americans don’t want you to run for a second term. In the meantime, inflation is up, national confidence is down, and your own loose tongue has quite possibly invited the Russians to start a war against Ukraine. Given that record of failure, what are you going to do?   The reliable Washington, DC, answer is to find that scapegoat and send it off into the wilderness. (In DC terms, that typically means becoming a lobbyist, which is lucrative, but not glamorous.) Whether he knows it or not, that’s the solution Biden, a Beltway lifer, is moving toward.  Fortunately for the 46th president, there’s a good scapegoat right down the hall from the Oval Office: his White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain.  On January 21, Politico, which makes a specialty of reporting on behind-the-scenes...
    Friday on ABC News’ “Good Morning America,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken sounded off on the growing tension between Russia and Ukraine. According to Blinken, “it’s ultimately going to be President [Vladimir] Putin who decides” if the two nations go to war. He added that any Russian aggression “will have serious consequences.” “Bottom line, are we further or closer away from war?” host George Stephanopoulos asked. “You really have to ask President Putin,” Blinken replied. “It’s ultimately going to be President Putin who decides what Russia will do. But here’s where we are: Based on what we’ve heard in the last couple of weeks, we will put in writing both some deep concerns that we and other allies and partners have about Russia’s actions, not just with regard to Ukraine but more broadly when it comes to things that it does to threaten security. We’ll address some of the concerns that Russia has raised with us, and we’ll put some ideas on the table for how we might actually strengthen each other’s sense of security going forward. And then based on...
    Jason Isaacs has said he has not joined his Harry Potter co-stars in criticising its author JK Rowling over her views on trans issues because 'she has poured an enormous amount of her fortune into making the world a much better place'. The actor, best known for playing Lucius Malfoy in the Potter series, described Rowling's charity work as 'unequivocally good', having worked with her organisation Lumos himself and so he would not 'jump to stab her in the back'. The franchise's younger stars, including Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, have spoken out against Ms Rowling when she voiced concerns last year that biological women were being put at risk in favour of trans rights. But Isaacs said he would prefer to have a conversation with the children's author before sharing his views on the trans row that frequently dominates Twitter threads.  Speaking to the Telegraph, he said the author had opinions which 'differed' from his own and said he did not want 'to get drawn into the trans issues' which he described as an, 'extraordinary minefield.'  Jason Isaacs (pictured...

    But resentment towards those progressive ideas among voters was a major reason that Youngkin was elected in the first place. During his campaign, Youngkin specifically rallied against race-based curriculum in schools and vowed to ban the teaching of critical race theory. Sailor, for her part, will have no problem carrying out the duties assigned to her. In recent blog posts for the Heritage Foundation, she said lessons arguing that “America is systemically racist” are “the textbook definition of racism.” “No one would argue that children shouldn’t be thoroughly taught about the evils of racism, slavery, and segregation that happened in this country,” she wrote in a July 2021 column. "But [critical race theory] ignores the hundreds of thousands of lives that were sacrificed during the Civil War to end slavery, the long struggle of the civil rights movement to end segregation and win equality, and the reality that the nation has made great progress.” The George W. Bush administration alum currently serves as the vice president of the Heritage Foundation's Feulner Institute, which was founded to "restore confidence in...
    Champion swimmer Michael Phelps has described the controversy that surrounds  transgender swimmer Lia Thomas is 'very complicated' - before adding that sports need a 'level playing field' to be fair.  Phelps, the most successful and most decorated Olympian of all time with a total of 28 medals, compared the issue of athletes like Thomas to doping in order to secure a competitive advantage in the pool.  Speaking to CNN, Phelps was adamant that something needed to be done about current NCAA guidelines that allow Thomas to compete against swimmers born female - but was unable to share any specific ideas.  'I think this leads back to the organizing committees again because it has to be a level playing field. That's something that we all need. Because that's what sports are. For me, I don't know where this is going to go. I don't know what's going to happen.'  Olympic champion swimmer Michael Phelps, 36, has reacted to the ongoing debate over trans college athlete Lia Thomas competing on women's swim team 'It's very complicated. We all should feel comfortable with who...
    Longtime Donald Trump advisor Roger Stone is dumping on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as an Ivy League 'fat boy' – in the latest sign of split between DeSantis and Trump. Stone, who has known Trump for decades and advised him informally during the 2016 campaign – then got a presidential pardon following a long legal saga amid the Russia probe – tore into DeSantis following a report the former president considers the potential rival 'dull.'   'Trump sometimes President Donald Trump hits it right on the nose. Ron DeSantis Yale Harvard fat boy can’t get out of his own way,' he wrote.  'Not smart. Not honest and not going to be president,' Stone wrote on social media.

    After huge spikes in infections and hospitalizations, there are signs that the omicron strain of COVID-19 is starting to recede, at least in some parts of the country. The highly transmissible strain moved fast and caused a high number of breakthrough cases that infected people who were otherwise vaccinated and often boosted. Listen to podcast: Is It Normal Yet? Expect more worrisome variants after omicron, scientists say More Coronavirus News More Health News Long term, those breakthrough infections could be a good thing for many in society, according to a professor of microbiology and immunology. “We’ve been looking at … people who have been vaccinated and then get an omicron infection,” said Dr. Andrew Pekosz, a professor of microbiology and immunology at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. “It really seems like if you get infected after getting vaccinated, your immune response is not only high, but it’s also what we call broad. Meaning, it starts to recognize all the previous variants that have been circulating almost as well as it recognizes your vaccine strain.” Pekosz made...
    VIDEO5:1605:16Pollster Frank Luntz says inflation has become the voting issue of 2022Squawk Box Discontent over skyrocketing inflation is the most important issue for voters heading into this year's midterm election, and Democrats are going to pay the price, according to Frank Luntz, a longtime GOP pollster and strategist. While Luntz is a Republican, he tends to take both parties to task when he feels they're missing the mark on an issue. "We're not just anxious anymore. This country is getting angry when they go to the supermarket, when they fill up their tank," Luntz told CNBC. "They're going to take that anger out at the ballot box in November," with the Democrats' slim majorities in the House and Senate at stake. Luntz said he can't fathom why President Joe Biden is trying to paint such a rosy picture of the economy while many people are struggling with higher prices against the back-drop of the hardships of the continuing pandemic and spiking Covid cases around the nation due to the highly contagious omicron variant. Voters have given Biden poor marks on...
    During his Wednesday national radio show Sean Hannity told listeners that the forthcoming book by Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President and Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer is going to be another bombshell-filled blockbuster. “I hear Peter Schweizer’s book is going to be massive!” Hannity said about the soon-to-be-released book Red-Handed: How American Elites Got Rich Helping China Win. Hannity’s comments came just hours after news broke, first reported by Politico Playbook, that publishing giant HarperCollins plans to launch Red-Handed on January 25. Later in the day Schweizer said the book is the “scariest” investigation he has ever conducted in his quarter-century as one of the nation’s leading nonpartisan investigative journalists and a six-time New York Times bestselling author. While the book remains under a strict embargo, an updated book listing on the HarperCollins website states that Red-Handed will present Schweizer’s “most alarming findings to date by revealing the secret deals wealthy Americans have cut to help China build its military, technological, and economic might.” The investigation also reportedly took Schweizer and his team of GAI forensic investigators more than...
    Former Growing Pains actor Kirk Cameron said he decided to embrace Christianity when he was 17 after being an atheist. During an interview with PragerU, Cameron explained how he began acting in Hollywood at the age of 14 and quickly became inducted into the society of Hollywood. "When I was a kid, I would have called myself an atheist until I was about 17 years old," Cameron said. The actor said he began to wonder at a young age if there was a heaven or hell and figured that "if there was a heaven, I wouldn't be going there because of my attitude and my self-centered, conceded, 'I'm all that, I'm the GOAT,' celebrity Mike Seaver guy."

    WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. (CBS4) – The president of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union told media Monday it planned move forward with a strike despite pleas from King Soopers to meet once again at the bargaining table, in an effort to find common ground. During a late afternoon news conference, UFCW Local 7 President Kim Cordova said the union was finished bargaining with out of state representatives and lawyers and would only meet if local leaders with the grocery giant, like it’s president, sat down to negotiate. “We think at this point King Soopers needs to face its workers,” said Cordova. “I mean we’ve had a deal with corporate lawyers from out of state we don’t want to add another entity into the discussion. We want local leadership, decision makers stake holders, to be at the bargaining table.” (credit: CBS) Cordova says the last time the president of King Soopers was present, it wasn’t enough to hear the union’s concerns. “He showed up for one day for a whole nine minutes. He stayed, he came in. He waved. He...

    Cathartic. That’s what it was. Page through the whole dictionary looking for a better word to describe President Biden’s speech on the first anniversary of the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, and you will not find one. The address, delivered from Statuary Hall, which was so memorably besieged one year ago, was an act of catharsis — a purging of emotional toxins built up from too much time hearing too many lies too brazenly told by those who seek to deny or minimize what happened. The insurrectionists were patriots, they say. The violence was peaceful, they say. The things we saw we didn’t see, they say. And down is left and up is sideways and monkeys drive rainbow-powered cars and flowers sing reggae and yada, yada, yada, Republicans and their media henchmen shoveling diversionary bushwa by the metric ton. Biden wasn’t having it. In Thursday’s speech, he cut through it all like a blowtorch through butter, calling out “the former president” — he never used the Florida retiree’s name — for weaving “a web of lies.” “He’s done so,”...
    The Washington Post faced backlash Saturday for a Twitter message promoting a story about President Biden frequently attending funerals since taking office. The story was headlined "Biden, funerals and a bygone era." The tweet and story appeared ahead of Biden’s attendance Saturday day at a funeral service in Nevada for former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who died Dec. 28 at age 82. It was the seventh funeral Biden has attended since becoming president, the Post noted.

    In a representative government, the context and accuracy of history changing events is of the utmost importance to ensure that we as voting Americans truly understand what is happening around us. Tragically, over the past thirteen years, from the Obama administration, to the Trump administration, and continuing through the Biden years, it has become increasingly challenging to discern the truth from propaganda touted by our media and the political ruling class. January 6th 2021, was a horrible day in our history – a tragic, heart-breaking, insane, and yes, historically-paradigm shifting day for all of us. I would never belittle the events of the attack on the Capitol. A year ago, I was already living a mere fifteen-minute drive from Capitol Hill, and can remember driving into work and calling my then-executive producer and telling him that something felt very wrong that morning. The streets were filled with angry MAGA supporters swarming the area around the Capitol and into where I was taping out of the ABC news bureau. They were in cars, honking, yelling, waving flags and clearly trying to...
    A pro-Trump mob breaks into the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, in Washington, D.C. Congress held a joint session that day to ratify President-elect Joe Biden's 306-232 Electoral College win over President Donald Trump. California Rep. Jimmy Gomez said the halls of Congress had already been hostile before the previous president incited his white insurrectionist supporters to violently storm the U.S. Capitol to try to overturn the 2020 election one year ago today. The Oversight and Reform vice-chair told Newsweek that the House was amid a vote on the Build Back Better bill last November when he was verbally accosted in an elevator by an unmasked Republican legislator. "You people are ruining the fucking country,” he said Texas Rep. Roger Williams told him. “Gomez, who is Mexican-American, was taken aback,” Newsweek reported. Williams would later vote to overturn democracy and against the impeachment of the disgraced former president. “Every member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) inside the building during the attack who spoke with Newsweek thought it would be the last day of their life,” the report said leading into the one-year anniversary of the insurrection. Gomez said...

    Q: I had a 2 p.m. appointment at my local DMV, at Stoneridge Mall in Pleasanton, and arrived about five minutes early. There was a line of about 15 people waiting to get in. I went to the head of the line to let the DMV lady know I had an appointment and she stated, “Get in line, like everybody else.” If this is the case, why am I making an appointment? What is the DMV policy for people with an appointment? Richard Kilker, Dublin A: When a person with an appointment arrives at a DMV field office, they are initially asked to enter the check-in line. This allows the DMV to review each person’s needs upon entry and ensure they are prepared to complete their transaction. Those with appointments are then entered into the appointment queue, giving them priority. DMV’s current goal is to serve appointment customers within 15 minutes of their check-in, and the current trend, statewide, is at eight minutes. Q: El Camino Real traverses many cities with an almost continuous business district. It is used...

    Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview that he believes “this country is going to be saved at the state level,” which is why the House Freedom Caucus (HFC) recently announced its intention to establish versions of the Freedom Caucus throughout state legislatures. “We put this together, this idea, about a year ago, and have been working on it,” Biggs told Breitbart News at Turning Point USA’s recent AmericaFest conference in Phoenix, Arizona. “There will be a separate unit, legally, and they’re going to — help provide communication and liaison between state legislative HFCs, and then federal HFC,” the congressman explained. “We think that this country is going to be saved at the state level, so we want to be able to provide the support that they need,” Biggs said. “We want them to know what the FEDs are doing, and we want to hear what they’re doing and what their issues are so we can have better communication to try to fix what’s going on in Congress that affects negatively the states.” Biggs added that he believes...
    Just before 11:30 a.m. Thursday, emergency dispatchers alerted firefighters to a grassfire reported near Marshall Road and Colorado 93 south of Boulder. The hurricane-force winds buffeting Boulder County meant it already had been a busy morning, with fire crews racing to stop two other grassfires north of the city limits. But the new fire near Marshall Road would prove to be a different beast. Powerful winds pushed the flames east and it exploded within minutes, sending a column of smoke skyward as it burned across parched grassland toward the suburban subdivisions of Superior. Tens of thousands of Boulder County residents fled that afternoon and evening as the entire town of Superior, then its neighbor across U.S. 36, the city of Louisville, were ordered to evacuate. The firestorm, accelerated by vicious winds and drought conditions, tore through Superior, jumped the turnpike and burned into Louisville. By late Thursday, the Marshall fire had burned 6,000 acres and destroyed nearly 1,000 homes and businesses to become the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history. The flames leveled a hotel in Superior and scorched the...
    Alabama head coach Nick Saban is already embracing the “underdog” mentality ahead of the Crimson Tide’s title bout rematch vs. Georgia, a team they throughly dismantled to win the SEC championship. The mental gymnastics Nick Saban and the Alabama football team can do to convince themselves they are the “underdogs” is nothing short of Belichickian. As a noted disciple of the New England Patriots head coach from their days working together in Cleveland, one would expect nothing less. Alabama may have a slightly less talented roster this year over Kirby Smart’s team (they did lose a ton to the 2021 NFL Draft), but the Crimson Tide have had the Dawgs’ number since the infamous 2008 Blackout Game at Sanford Stadium. Even if falling in Atlanta to Alabama can be viewed as a blessing in disguise for Georgia, the Crimson Tide will still find a way to harness every perceived slight in the hopes of channeling them towards winning another national championship. An “underdog” Saban-led team playing with a chip on its shoulder is an absolutely terrifying proposition for whatever opponent...
    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- COVID-19 infections are hurtling through families, communities and workplaces and many people get infected when they least expect it.Jenna Stewart of Topanga, who owns Canyon Adventure Vans, believes she contracted COVID at a small holiday gathering."My guard was down because I was triple vaxxed," she said.Now Stewart, her family and nearly her entire staff has tested positive for the virus."Our whole team is out.

    Nicolas Cage revealed Thursday that he doesn't consider himself an actor. Instead, the 57-year-old Oscar winner prefers the term 'thespian' to better describe how deeply he engages with his craft. The Pig star shared his unorthodox definition of a thespian while chatting with Variety for its Awards Circuit Podcast. One from the heart: Nicolas Cage, 57, said on Variety's Awards Circuit Podcast that he prefers to be called a 'thespian' instead of an actor because it 'means you're going into your heart'; seen November 29 in NYC Cage explained that he dislikes the term actor because he associates it with lying. 'For me it always implies, "Oh, he's a great actor, therefore he's a great liar,"' he said. 'So with the risk of sounding like a pretentious a**hole, I like the word "thespian" because thespian means you're going into your heart, or you're going into your imagination, or your memories or your dreams, and you're bringing something back to communicate with the audience.'

    As of Jan. 1, surprise medical billing will be (mostly) a thing of the past. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that the rules for the No Surprises Act, enacted on Dec. 27, 2020, are finalized and take effect on Monday. “Starting Jan. 1, 2022, consumers will have new billing protections when getting emergency care, non-emergency care from out-of-network providers at in-network facilities, and air ambulance services from out-of-network providers,” CMS announced. “Through new rules aimed to protect consumers, excessive out-of-pocket costs will be restricted, and emergency services must continue to be covered without any prior authorization, and regardless of whether or not a provider or facility is in-network.” That means if you have a medical emergency, you won’t end up with a hefty bill from a provider you didn’t choose to provide care. The rule covers all emergency care and most other care. It means you don’t have to undertake a complicated process before receiving care to find out if every service you are getting from every provider will be approved by your insurer.  “I think this is so pro-consumer, it’s so pro-patient—and its...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Anyone in Massachusetts seeking a COVID-19 test these days is likely to encounter long lines and empty store shelves. Amid the frustration, Gov. Charlie Baker said Thursday that people are just going to have to be patient. “There’s going to be a lot of demand for this,” Baker said about the rush to get tested after the holidays. “People need to understand that they’re probably going to have to wait. READ MORE: FDA Expected To Allow Pfizer Booster Shots For Kids Ages 12-To-15 SoonThe governor stressed that there are hundreds of testing sites in Massachusetts, which is second in the country in testing per capita. “We have more testing infrastructure than just about anybody else, but people are going to have to be patient,” he said. Staffing issues are the main obstacle in expanding testing operations, Baker said. He added that he’s been “aggressively communicating” with the Biden administration on testing.

    This is the moment a vehicle lining up for a COVID-19 drive-thru test was overtaken by a turtle.  The video was recorded on Wednesday, December 29 at the Florida Atlantic University testing center in Boca Raton, Florida. Cory Safra, who captured the amusing footage, can be heard saying: 'You know the COVID line is moving slow when the turtle is passing you.' Corey Safra was overtaken by a turtle while he lined up for a drive-thru COVID-19 test in Boca Raton, Florida, as Omicron sweeps the nation, putting unprecedented demand on testing centers According to Mr Safra, his wait dragged on for a four hours.   A record 46,923 new COVID cases were reported in Florida on Wednesday.  The video is emblematic of a nationwide problem, as the Biden administration comes under mounting pressure to provide more testing capacity, with many people having to wait hours for a COVID test. Yesterday there were 301,472 new daily average cases reported in the US - the highest ever.  As the new Omicron variant sweeps the nation, demand on testing centers has reached record...

(Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images) The 2021 season has not been an ideal year for Chicago Bears nose tackle Eddie Goldman. After opting out in 2020, Goldman returned to the team this year, but not without a few question marks surrounding his slow start. The interior defensive lineman missed the first three games of the season due to minor injuries, and it took him a while to get going. “If you don’t do something for a long time, it’s just getting your feet wet,” Bears defensive coordinator Sean Desai said about Goldman in November, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “Seeing the speed of the game, the timing of the game; addressing the blocks; making sure your eyes are in the right spot; making sure your hand placement and footwork are in the right spot. And that takes time. That takes reps.” Now, over a month later and with...
    Before Daunte Wright was shot and killed by now former Minnesota police officer Kim Potter, he terrorized his local neighborhood for several years, leaving victims and their families with a lifetime's worth of trauma and suffering.

    Kyle Rittenhouse suggested on Monday that he will sue media outlets over their coverage of his recent trial. Rittenhouse was 17 years old when he shot three men, killing two, during riots in Kenosha last year after the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man. Rittenhouse was acquitted last month on all charges related to the shootings. “There’s going to be some media accountability coming soon,” Rittenhouse told Fox News in an interview in Phoenix, where he had received a wild standing ovation on Monday at a conference held by the pro-Trump youth group Turning Point USA called AmericaFest. Rittenhouse was vilified by left-wing media that included some commentators calling him a “white supremacist.” During the Fox News interview, his second with the network since his highly-watched one with Tucker Carlson following the acquittal, Rittenhouse reiterated his regret being in Kenosha on that Aug. 25 night. “[With] what I was dragged through and what I had to go through, to facing life in prison, I wouldn’t say it was worth it…hindsight being 20/20,” he said. Rittenhouse also pushed back against Arizona State University students who...

    MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch predicted Friday on “Deadline” that former President Donald Trump would be indicted for “bank fraud, mail fraud, and insurance fraud.” Deutsch said, “I met with Michael Cohen a couple of weeks ago. He is doing well, out of house arrest, and he seems to think things are really moving along.” When asked what investigators Cohen is speaking with, Deutsch said, “Cy Vance’s people, both, both the attorney general and the district attorney. He has met over a dozen times. He spent 50, 60, 70 hours going back to when he was in prison. You know, they are not— you know public officials, and you know guys — they are not doing this for the sake of doing this. They are doing this with an end game. And I believe as we get closer to maybe, you know, midterm elections or sometimes that’s politically timely, I am not saying there are politics involved in this — Trump is going to be indicted. I believe that with every bone in my body.” He added, “Al Capone did not...

Covington last stepped inside the Octagon when he challenged for the welterweight belt at UFC 268 in November 2021. It was his second time fighting the 170-pound champion, Kamaru Usman, and although Covington had his moments during the match, he ultimately fell short to “The Nigerian Nightmare” once again.

    On Friday’s broadcast of Bloomberg TV’s “Wall Street Week,” Steve Rattner, who served as counselor to the Treasury Secretary in the Obama administration, said that it will “take multiple years” to work inflation out of the economy, and “it is going to be painful. And it’s going to be painful for growth. It’s going to be painful for jobs.” Rattner said, “I think you have to recognize it’s a problem that was not created in two months, it was a problem created over the last two years. And so, it’s going to take multiple years, certainly, to work it out. I, in no way, want to predict that we’re going back to where we were in the late 70s, but I was sitting in the Washington Bureau of The New York Times when Paul Volcker announced his new inflation policy and I watched all that happen. And it took multiple, multiple years and a terrible recession to get it out of the system. So, it is going to be painful. And it’s going to be painful for growth. It’s going to be...

The thespian later concluded the interview by stating that sin is the ultimate cause of division both within ourselves and in our communities. “The enemy is the inner me," he said. "The Bible says in the last days — I don’t know if it’s the last days, it’s not my place to know — but it says we’ll be lovers of ourselves. The No. 1 photograph today is a selfie, ‘Oh, me at the protest.’ ‘Me with the fire.’ ‘Follow me.’ ‘Listen to me.’ We’re living in a time where people are willing to do anything to get followed.
