    Tackling the PGA DFS slate for The American Express with our best DraftKings golf picks for each pricing tier and an ideal lineup for this week. We’re heading to The American Express this week for the next stop on the PGA Tour after the Hawaii Swing. Subsequently, we’re going to get heavy into the PGA DFS slate with our DraftKings golf picks for the week. This is an event that can be difficult to decipher given that it’s played across three courses and the fact that we’re also looking at a 54-hole cut as opposed to the more customary 36-hole cut. Subsequently, we’re really just looking for overall good players in solid form right now. So as we dive into this PGA DFS slate on DraftKings for The American Express, we’re going to look at our top plays from the five pricing tiers of players in addition to who we’re fading in each range before building a lineup. Let’s get into the plays (which, again, are the best plays — not an indictment on anyone who isn’t picked if you...
    Breitbart News sat down with Arizona gubernatorial hopeful Kari Lake during Turning Point USA’s Americafest. She said she will issue a “Declaration of Invasion” on day one in office in order to begin closing the Arizona/Mexico border. We asked Lake, “There is so much danger from an open border…What does Governor Lake do to keep that border secure? What can you do?” She responded by pointing to the Constitution’s explicit points on protecting the United States from “invasion.” She then suggested the federal government is not doing what they are supposed to do to protect the American people in that regard. Lake said, “On day one, after taking the oath of office, while the press is still assembled, [I’ll] remove my hand from the Bible and we’re going to issue a Declaration of Invasion.” She explained that she knows the federal government under Joe Biden will fight her efforts to close the border, but made clear that she will not be dissuaded or distracted by the federal government. “If Joe Biden is going to hand off control of our border...
    Defying polls and the predictions of many political analysts, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer forecasted House Democrats would hold on to enough seats to stay in power after the midterm elections in November. “I think we’re going to hold the majority,” the Maryland Democrat told reporters Wednesday. “I know that is contrary to what some people think.” GOP DIGITAL DONOR PLATFORM WINRED PROCESSES $559 MILLION IN 2021 Hoyer offered his optimistic analysis hours after a new poll showed voters disappointed in Biden’s first year in office and a day after the 28th Democratic incumbent made an announcement about not seeking reelection. In the latest Rasmussen Reports poll, 60% called the president’s first year unsuccessful, and among those, 50% said Biden has been “very unsuccessful.” Overall, a third of Democrats also think he’s failed. But Hoyer said Democrats can run on passing a strong agenda, including the stalled social welfare and green energy legislation known as Build Back Better. Hoyer predicted some form of the gridlocked measure would eventually pass. “I think we're going pass...
    Joe Biden is the worst president of my lifetime and might just be the worst president in American history.Politics is full of hyperbole. Politics is full of hyperbole and partisanship, and every four to eight-year cycle, those that disagree with the platform or the party of the president in power find themselves thinking we've arrived at hell in a handbasket. It couldn't possibly be worse than this. I've always had an aversion to that type of hyperbole. But the last two years have lived up not only to every conspiracy theory, but they've lived up to everybody's exaggeration. I was born in 1975, so for the standard of worst president of my lifetime, that would mean Joe Biden would need to outpace Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump. And it's safe: Joe Biden runs across the finish line and almost laps the field for worst president of my lifetime. And I think you'll have a hard time, at least through one year of their tenure, finding a...
    (CNN)In big cities across the United States, fears about crime have citizens up in arms. They've been an animating force in recent mayoral elections. In New York, where new mayor Eric Adams ran on a platform of public safety, the recent subway killing of Michelle Alyssa Go has further galvanized the city and stoked many New Yorkers' deepest anxieties. In Los Angeles, homicides were up 12% in 2021, forcing Mayor Eric Garcetti to answer some tough questions -- and declare that "Los Angeles is not alone in this trend." Just last week, a 70-year-old nurse was attacked at an L.A. bus stop, and later died from her injuries. However, contrary to fearmongering from politicians and press, American cities are not experiencing record crime rates. Crime rates, including national homicide rates, remain well below where they were in the 1980s and 1990s, according to FBI data. But that's a very low bar. The United States was already an exceptionally violent and deadly place for a wealthy, developed country, largely thanks to extremely lax gun laws that are one reason our violent...
    On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) said that the economy, inflation, the border, crime, and coronavirus are the issues people are talking about and if Democrats don’t talk about them, “we are going to lose the election.” Host Martha MacCallum read from [relevant exchange begins around 1:25] an article by Doug Schoen and Carly Cooperman in The Hill, which said, “Biden and congressional Democrats need to dedicate their focus to…viable legislation that addresses voters’ top issues of concern. The administration has spent too much time wrangling members of their own party — without success — to pass policies that ultimately alienate key voting groups like Hispanic and Latino voters.” She continued, “And we’ve seen the drift in support, only 28% of Latino voters support the president at this point. So, when he talks about the need to focus on top issues of concern, and when we poll those, it’s the economy, inflation, the border, COVID, would you like to see this White House more focused — and crime, I should point out,...
    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are setting up a complex network of companies all based in the opaque tax haven state of Delaware – despite living and doing business in California. Meghan's longtime lawyer and business manager have incorporated 11 companies and a trust for the couple since April 2020, state filings reveal, including a firm apparently set up for Harry's multi-million-dollar memoir book deal. Names for the companies include an intriguing Japanese term for deal making, a reference to Meghan's freckles in Spanish, a South American river, and a possible allusion to a $44,000 'babymoon' getaway the couple took in 2019. The companies are all headquartered in the Beverly Hills offices of attorney Richard Genow, who has worked with the Duchess for years. Also appearing on company filings for all 11 firms is her business manager Andrew Meyer, a well-connected money guru whose clients have included Jon Chu, Anna Kendrick, Adam Driver, Kathryn Hahn, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Ellen Pompeo. DailyMail.com can reveal Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are setting up a complex network of companies based in the...
    Breaking down our PGA Tour expert picks and best bets for The American Express as we head to Palm Springs, California for a wild three-course tournament.  We’re heading to Palm Springs and La Quinta, California this week for The American Express, one of the more unique tournaments on the PGA Tour. We’ll have the tournament played across three courses (PGA West Stadium Course, La Quinta Country Club, PGA West Nicklaus Tournament Course) with a 54-hole cut. Before we get into breaking this tournament, which is headlined with Jon Rahm, Patrick Cantlay, Scottie Scheffler, Matthew Wolff, Tony Finau and Rickie Fowler in the field, let’s look back at the Sony Open last week. We weren’t on Hideki Matsuyama, unfortunately, as he picked up the win and our Top 10 pick of Webb Simpson missed. With that said, Corey Conners as the One and Done netted $189,375, which is solid return. We also cashed our two straight bets with Conners over Talor Gooch (-120) and Russell Henley for a Top 20 (+150), the latter of which cashed with ease as he was...

              by Glenn Ellmers   Our political situation is so chaotic and strange right now that we can’t take anything for granted—including what is normal. So it’s often necessary to explain what may seem obvious to readers of American Greatness, but is regarded as strange or almost incomprehensible to other people. For example, it is obvious to me, and probably to you, that today’s “progressive” agenda is actually pushing our country back to a more primitive past. Consider some of the most urgent priorities of woke ideology: Reinstituting racial segregation and replacing individual rights with group rights. Abandoning poor and minority neighborhoods to lawlessness by defunding the police and decriminalizing many offenses. Eliminating opportunities for women in sports by forcing them to compete against men. Impoverishing working-class American citizens by enriching a global oligarchy while flooding the labor market with illegal aliens. Eliminating due process and the rule of law by resurrecting pre-trial detention, extra-legal punishment, and the presumption of guilt for “political enemies.” In each case, this agenda represents a return to a less civilized, even barbaric, past. More precisely,...
    American Jews are being asked to get used to something that European and Middle Eastern Jews have been accustomed to for thousands of years, namely, to live with targets on their backs. The United States was always different. Yes, Jew-hatred has always existed, even here in America, but rarely in a violent manner. It was always much more of the we-won’t-let-them-into-our-country-club variety, or quotas at leading universities. To the extent that Jews died as a result of American antisemitism, it was rare — and, in the most egregious case, it was a form of passive evil, when Jews were not allowed to enter the U.S. during the Holocaust, especially after FDR’s disastrous appointment of antisemite Breckenridge Long as head of the visa section of the State Department during World War II. But with that painful and monumental exception, the United States has been one of the greatest blessings to world Jewry in our long and painful history. Until now. The nonstop and deadly attacks on American Jews, and especially synagogues, boggles the mind. Are we caught in some weird Hollywood...
    Unfortunately, here in the United States, we tend to be inundated with wellness advice that basically sums up to: Do more, try harder, and be better. There’s much to be said about how capitalism ingrains itself so deeply into our personal lives that we experience, say, a difficult period or traumatic event and turn to self-improvement (as opposed to widely accessible mental health care, for example). In some ways, the pandemic has only highlighted this frustration—I’m a big advocate of taking walks and finding hobbies myself, but I can’t say we can daily walk ourselves out of the ongoing anxiety of surviving a global health crisis. With all of this in mind, I’ve been thinking a lot about reading goals and New Year’s resolutions. Exercise, eat “right,” stream less, read more—nothing in this line of thought is inherently bad, of course, but when we’re facing the very real scenario of potentially life-threatening illness changing every aspect of our lives, the focus can feel misplaced. According to a recent Gallup report, American adults read fewer books in this past year than in previous...
    Today we honor the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. There are many obvious reasons to raise up his name in tribute and praise. But there’s another less obvious reason – the civil rights leader understood southern politics. Much of our discourse treats southern politics as if it were just another regional bloc. Or the region and its history are whitewashed in ways similar to slavery being whitewashed from US history. I think King knew better. If you don’t understand southern politics, you don’t understand politics, period. I’m not a scholar, but I lived in the south for nearly a decade. I was a reporter and editor at small newspapers. I’m here to tell you, things are different. Speaking truthfully is not a civic virtue. Free speech is not valued. The common good is not recognized. There is no such thing as “the public.” Equality is paid lip service. The rights of property are unquestioned.

    Joe Biden's message and the promise he made to the American people from the beginning of his campaign for the presidency was that he was going to 'heal and restore America's soul.' Over and over again on the campaign trail, he spoke and pleaded with the American people in an effort to convey that he alone was the antidote to the divisive chaos of the Trump years.  He promised to be a president for all Americans and to usher us out of what was one of the most divided times in American history. We all know he hasn't done that. By any metric, America is becoming a worse place to live, work, and raise our children. The Fourth of July promise of freedom from Covid was little more than an ill-advised photo op. A new Gallup poll just released Monday shows that in 2021, Republicans went from a 9-percentage point deficit in party identification to a 5-point lead. It is the biggest advantage for Republicans since the 1994 'Republican Revolution.' Biden promised to be a president for all Americans and...
    At least 359 United States-bound migrants, mostly from Central America, were found crammed inside a tractor trailer on a highway in the southeastern Mexican state of Veracruz. The shocking discovery was made Sunday around 3:30a.m. local time when Federal Immigration Agents pulled over the driver on road connecting the towns of connecting Coatzacoalcos and Veracruz before they proceeded to inspect the freight container, the National Institute of Migration said in a statement. The agents heard voices coming from the trailer box and pried its doors open, finding the migrants sitting alongside both sides of the cargo box while other individuals were spread across the floor sleeping beside each other. Mexican immigration agents found 359 migrants from Central American and South American being smuggled in a tractor trailer Sunday morning in the southeastern state of Veracruz. The agents were manning a checkpoint on a highway connecting the municipalities of Coatzacoalcos and Veracruz before they proceeded to inspect the freight container. The driver was placed under arrest while the migrants were taken in for processing A group of 359 migrants bound for the United...
    Throughout 2021, Americans were absorbed in arguments over mask mandates, school closings, and the meaning of the January 6th attack on the Capitol. Meanwhile, geopolitical hot spots were erupting across Eurasia, forming a veritable ring of fire around that vast landmass. Let’s circle that continent to visit just a few of those flashpoints, each one suffused with significance for the future of U.S. global power. On the border with Ukraine, 100,000 Russian troops were massing with tanks and rocket launchers, ready for a possible invasion. Meanwhile, Beijing signed a $400 billion agreement with Tehran to swap infrastructure-building for Iranian oil. Such an exchange might help make that country the future rail hub of Central Asia, while projecting China’s military power into the Persian Gulf. Just across the Iranian border in Afghanistan, Taliban guerrillas swept into Kabul ending a 20-year American occupation in a frantic flurry of shuttle flights for more than 100,000 defeated Afghan allies. Farther east, high in the Himalayas, Indian Army engineers were digging tunnels and positioning artillery to fend off future clashes with China. In the Bay...
    On Saturday, a 44-year-old British citizen named Malik Faisal Akram held four Jews hostage for more than ten hours at Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, Texas.  The first few hours of the crisis were livestreamed on the synagogue's website, the confluence of Covid, zoom services, and partial remote attendance of the bar mitzvah held in the synagogue.  Despite this live window into the afternoon's events, there is still much we don't know. But there are a few things we do know. We know that the assailant was seeking to release Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani national who is serving an 86-year sentence in Texas.  Siddiqui was convicted in 2010 for multiple chargers, including attempted murder and armed assault on US officers in Afghanistan. During her trial, she demanded the jurors be genetically tested to ensure none of them were Zionists. We also know that one month ago, Zahra Billoo, an executive director of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations gave a speech in which she said that Zionist synagogues and most major Jewish organizations were responsible for both Islamaphobia and various...

    Brig. Gen. Charles McGee, one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen, died Sunday morning in his sleep, according to a family spokesman. He was 102."McGee was a living legend known for his kind-hearted, and humble nature, who saw positivity at every turn," the family said in the statement. "He spent the last half century inspiring future generations to pursue careers in aviation, but equally important, he encouraged others to be the best they could be, to follow their dreams, and to persevere through all challenges."Over the course of his historic career, McGee successfully completed 409 air combat missions across three wars, World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, serving a total of 30 years of active service. McGee has received numerous accolades throughout his career, including the Congressional Gold Medal in 2007 and the National Business Aviation Association's Meritorious Service to Aviation Award in 2012. He was enshrined into the National Aviation Hall of Fame in 2011. Today, we lost an American hero. Charles McGee, Brigadier General and one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airman, passed at the age of 102....
              by Gonzalo Schwarz   The term “culture war” has been a staple of American politics and public debates for decades, the latest iterations framed by the likes of abortion, marriage equality, and climate change. However, such issues don’t motivate voters as much as people on the extremes tend to believe. You saw it in Virginia’s recent election, with exit polls showing that 34% of voters say the economy/jobs is the most important issue facing the state. Education is the second-most important issue, and with it the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic that closed schools — contrary to the wishes of many parents. Critical race theory was important insofar as it related to education and the say that parents should have regarding what’s taught in local schools. Extremes aside, the one culture war that truly matters is the battle between “equality of opportunity” versus “equality of outcome.” The former is a narrative that aims for success and values meritocracy, while the latter frowns upon success and dismisses meritocracy. One side focuses on achievement and aspiration, rather than nihilism and zero-sum thinking. It’s impossible...
    Multiple sclerosis is often caused by the Epstein-Barr virus, according to a new study by US researchers who have first identified the culprit of this autoimmune disease. This finding raises hopes for the future development of a therapeutic approach that will make it possible to cure this disease, which affects about 2.8 million people worldwide. 95% of all adults are infected with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), which can cause other diseases such as mononucleosis. The hypothesis has been explored for many years The study was published in the prestigious journal This Week Science, Showing that this virus is essential for the development of multiple sclerosis, even if not all infected people develop the disease. The hypothesis has been studied for many years, but is difficult to prove, especially since the virus is so common, and the symptoms of the disease begin only ten years after the onset of the infection. Solid evidence for the cause Alberto Asserio, lead author and professor of epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health, said it was “the first study to provide...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The man who authorities say was holding hostages inside a Texas synagogue on Saturday demanded the release of a Pakistani woman who is imprisoned nearby on charges of trying to kill American service members in Afghanistan. The woman, Aafia Siddiqui, is serving an 86-year prison sentence after being convicted in Manhattan in 2010 on charges that she sought to shoot U.S. military officers while being detained in Afghanistan two years earlier. For the Justice Department, which had accused Siddiqui of being an al-Qaida operative, it was a significant conviction in the fight against international extremism. But to her supporters, many of whom believed in her innocence, the case embodied what they saw as an overzealous post Sept. 11-American judicial system. Here’s a closer look at the case: WHO IS AAFIA SIDDIQUI: She’s a Pakistani neuroscientist who studied in the United States at prestigious institutions — Brandeis University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She attracted the attention of American law enforcement in the years after the Sept. 11 attacks. Top FBI and Justice Department described her...
    Olivia Culpo seemingly addressed her recent controversy with American Airlines in a social media post shared Saturday. Culpo, 29, posed in a dress full of cut-outs. The model wore her hair pulled back and accessorized with a headband. "Please use caution while using the overheard bins as items may have shifted during flight," she captioned the photo. The post comes after Culpo was asked to change before boarding an American Airlines flight earlier this week. Olivia Culpo seemingly trolled American Airlines by sharing a photo of her in a cut-out dress with airlines-themed caption.

    Celine Dion announced on social media on Saturday that she was forced to cancel the last dates of her North American tour due to health reasons. “I hope to be ready to go back on stage now, but I still have to be patient and follow my doctors’ recommendations. […] I will be very happy when I am healthy again, the epidemic is behind us and I will be back on stage, ”he wrote in a statement. The singer explains that it takes longer for her to heal than she expected. He was treated for severe and persistent muscle cramps. Thus he could not go on stage and perform. In recent years Covid-19 has been forced to postpone his performances by Celine Dion for epidemic and health reasons. The canceled shows were originally scheduled to take place in the United States and Western Canada. Before the outbreak in March 2020, Celine Dion presented her “Courage” show 52 times. For now, scheduled events are being held in Europe from May 25, 2022. Canceled shows...
              by Melissa Mackenzie   Jim Gaffigan said on Joe Rogan’s program, “I’d still take Biden’s corpse over Donald Trump.” Congratulations, elites! You’re now being governed by a political corpse. Elites will be fine with a dead president governing a zombified American economy and society. Working and middle-class Americans? Not so much. How dead is Joe Biden’s political life? Joe Biden is so toxic politically that Stacey Abrams, governor of the Georgia of her mind, refused to stand with him in the state she ostensibly governs about the legislation that is her signature issue: codifying the ability to commit election fraud at the federal level. Abrams was absent while a bunch of masked black people stood stoically behind the bellicose president. The optics were bad in every aspect. The content was worse. Did Biden address the distress of the 1982-ish 7 percent inflation numbers crushing the lower and middle class? No. Did the president encourage people in the face of year three enduring the out-of-control omicron variant? No. Did the president discuss job innovation? No. Biden, violating Never Trump’s beloved norms,...

    It is difficult if not impossible to solve a problem when one lacks the language to properly describe and understand it. That problem is made worse if the language is available but people refuse to use it. In the Age of Trump, too many members of the American mainstream news media and the larger political class have either forgotten or never learned that commonsense wisdom. In a recent interview with historian Ruth Ben-Ghiat, bestselling author and intelligence expert Malcolm Nance described this situation:New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow recently tweeted that we're in collective denial. That we are standing on the precipice. That the American experiment is about to end. I have been screaming this from the rooftops.As for the news media, they're not like ostriches with their heads in the sand. They are literally living a pie-in-the-sky life where, if you live in New York City and Donald Trump does horrible things, the bodega still has flowers. You can still go and get a sandwich in 2 in the morning. You can still get an Uber. It's almost...
    Friday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) urged President Joe Biden to govern for the American people rather than the “fringe element on Twitter.” Given the president’s recent failures with his voting rights speech in Georgia and his U.S. Supreme Court defeat, Gallagher said he thinks “we’re seeing the collapse of the Biden presidency.” “The president seems too weak to tell Pelosi and Schumer to focus on the urgent needs of the moment: inflation, immigration, crime. And they seem afraid of some of the fringe elements in their own party, too afraid to keep the federal government tethered to reality,” Gallagher argued. “And it seems to me the deeper problem in the White House right now is that the president is governing for Twitter and not for the American people. I mean, all these things they keep saying — this is the pandemic of the unvaccinated, insisting on voter I.D. as Jim Crow. I mean, they keep saying this stuff. It is all a Twitter/media hallucination. And I am genuinely wondering, and I have some Democratic...
    "Fox & Friends Weekend" co-host Will Cain said on "Outnumbered" Friday that the commander in chief held himself out as the "messiah" but has failed to unite Americans. Cain and the panel discussed President Biden capping off a bad week with some major defeats and setbacks in recent days. BIDEN WHITE HOUSE REELING AFTER WEEK OF DEFEATS, SETBACKS, AND POLICY FLOPS WILL CAIN: The president held himself out during the campaign as the messiah. He demagogued that he would be able to stop coronavirus. He filled the American public full of fear. And then in sheer incompetence, he failed. In response, what does he do? He divides the American people. He divided us based upon vaccination status, based upon race, based upon party. And he has returned to fire and brimstone. Not Jen Psaki, bunnies and ice cream. But, fire and brimstone. That's lost the American people. We are done with this division. We’re done with the lies that created this division and we’re done with fear.

    Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy questioned a Biden administration effort to send masks to Americans who want them, asking “what’s the point” if they can only be worn once. At Friday’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki introduced FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell for an update and to take questions from reporters. This week, President Joe Biden announced a plan to send masks to all Americans. He said that “next week we’ll announce how we are making high-quality masks available to American people — the American people for free.” “I know we all wish that we could finally be done with wearing masks. I get it. But they are a really important tool to stop the spread, especially of the highly transmittable omicron variant,” Biden added. Doocy expressed skepticism about the program, asking “So what’s the point of now sending N95 or KN95 masks out to Americans, if a lot of those masks are just single daily use, like, somebody wears it once? Then what?” “Masks save lives, I think, is the important thing here, and we want...
    Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-Wis., said Friday on "America's Newsroom" that President Biden and his administration are governing for Twitter rather than the American people.  BIDEN REELING AFTER MAJOR LOSSES ON FILIBUSTER, VACCINES AND MORE TO START 2022 MIKE GALLAGHER: It seems to me the deeper problem in the White House right now is that the president is governing for Twitter and not for the American people. I mean all these things they keep saying. ‘This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated,’ insisting voter ID is Jim Crow. I mean they keep saying this stuff. It’s all a Twitter media hallucination. And I’m genuinely wondering, and I have some Democratic colleagues who behind closed doors are wondering where this is coming from and whether the president is actually getting access to the full scope of the facts and whether he’s purposely being kept in the dark.   WATCH BILL HEMMER AND DANA PERINO'S FULL INTERVIEW BELOW  Video This article was written by Fox News staff.
    Ghost Villages, Supernatural Children, Evil Rituals … The 29th Gérardmer International Fantastic Film Festival, which returns to theaters on January 26, announced the ten films in the competition on Thursday. The jury is chaired by actress, director and producer Julie Guyd.

    Joe Biden has nominated three people to the board of the Federal Reserve in what would usher in the most diverse group in the Fed's history - and the most woke. The president is intent on nominating a white woman, Sarah Bloom Raskin; a black woman, Lisa Cook; and a black man, Philip Jefferson.  If they are confirmed to their posts, the seven-person Fed board would have four women, one black man and two white men - the most diverse team in the Fed's 108 years of existence.  All three have proven liberal credentials. Bloom Raskin, 60, is married to Congressman Jamie Raskin - a Democrat representing Maryland in the House. Sarah Bloom Raskin, 60, is in line to be appointed as vice chair of supervision of the Fed - policing the nation's biggest banks. She has been a vocal advocate for more regulation to combat climate change Bloom Raskin is seen with her husband Jamie Raskin, a Democrat congressman for Maryland She spent four years as a Fed governor before being tapped as a deputy Treasury secretary from 2014 to...
    When the Supreme Court blocked OSHA’s vaccine-or-test mandate on Thursday while upholding the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ vaccine requirement for all health workers, you might think this was a split decision with the justices just calling balls and strikes. You’d be dead wrong. This was a hyper-partisan decision that will eviscerate President Biden’s COVID-19 strategy. First let’s discuss just how hypocritical the six conservative justices are. The Court insists on some of the strictest COVID-19 policy rules in the nation. All attorneys must take a PCR test and wear N95 or KN95 masks in court. But what they demand for themselves they deny to a construction or assembly worker. In other words, the most privileged can protect themselves, but they would deny that protection to everyday workers. The Court’s decision will directly result in thousands of preventable deaths. We’ve been stuck at just over 60% vaccination rate, and far lower for boosters. That places us near the bottom of our peer nations. The president’s only shot at boosting vaccination coverage was his large business mandate, which would have...
    The racial disparity between NFL players and coaches grew wider on Thursday as the Houston Texans fired David Culley after just one season, leaving the Pittsburgh Steelers' Mike Tomlin as the only African-American head coach in a mostly black league. 'One Black head coach left in the NFL,' tweeted USA Today's Mike Freeman. 'Absolutely disgraceful.' Culley's widely reported dismissal follows the Miami Dolphins' decision to fire their black head coach, Brian Flores, after the team went a respectable 19-14 over the last two seasons. A Texans spokesperson did not immediately confirm DailyMail.com's request for confirmation.  African Americans accounted for 57.5 percent of league players in 2020, according to The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports. Meanwhile white players comprised 24.9 percent of NFL rosters in 2020, when the league still had four black head coaches.  The NFL tied a record in 2018 with eight African-American head coaches, all but seven of whom have been dismissed.  The Houston Texans fired David Culley after just one season on Thursday, leaving the Pittsburgh Steelers' Mike Tomlin as the NFL's only black head...
    National pro-life leader Jim Sedlak, 78, died Monday before the release of his report exposing more of the activities of abortion industry giant Planned Parenthood. In a press statement about Sedlak’s passing, American Life League (ALL) cofounder Judie Brown referred to her longtime friend and fellow advocate as “the #1 Enemy of the Evil of Planned Parenthood in America.” According to the statement, on the day he died, Sedlak, who served as ALL’s executive director, was expected to appear on a morning radio show to discuss ALL’s soon-to-be-released “2021 Planned Parenthood Facilities Report.” Dear friends and supporters of ALL. It is with sadness that we report the death of James W. Sedlak, executive director of ALL and founder of STOPP, International. From Judie Brown: pic.twitter.com/yRrLt8oGqX — American Life League (@AmerLifeLeague) January 10, 2022 “From the very first moment I spoke to Jim there was no doubt that he was an expert on the ways that people in grassroots movements could be most effective in fighting Planned Parenthood,” Brown shared, adding: He spoke from experience, and he always knew exactly what...
    By Jeff Stein The arrest in New York last week of an Egyptian-American accused of spying on exiles opposed to President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s repressive regime has lifted the curtain on a “significant” but little noted national security issue: the recruitment of U.S. state and local police by foreign intelligence agencies. Pierre Girgis, a dual Egyptian-U.S. citizen in Manhattan, worked at the “direction and control” of several Cairo agencies to advance the regime's interests in the United States from 2014 through 2019, according to a federal indictment handed down Jan. 6. Girgis, a Capital One bank vice president who openly promoted interchanges between Egyptian officials and American police, had a secret helper, according to the Justice Department: a source in local law enforcement. FBI wiretaps overheard Girgis and Egyptian officials talking about exploiting the (unnamed) police officer for private information on anti-regime activists here. The Girgis case is hardly atypical, law enforcement sources say. The full number and disposition of such cases in recent years was not readily available from the Justice Department, but according to former FBI counterintelligence...

    Vice President Kamala Harris refused to address speculation about the 2024 presidential ticket, telling NBC News that she couldn't care less about 'high class gossip.' She insisted she and President Joe Biden are 'thinking about today' but her dismissal comes amid speculation the West Wing is frustrated with her, endangering her heir apparent status, and talk that Biden, who is 79, may not run again because of his age.  'I'm sorry, we are thinking about today,' she told NBC's Craig Melvin in an interview that aired Thursday on the Today Show. 'I mean, honestly I know why you're asking the question - because this is part of the punditry and the gossip around places like Washington, DC. Let me just tell you something. We're focused on the things in front of us. We're focused on what we need to do to address issues like affordable childcare.' When he pressed her again about whether she'd be on the 2024 Democratic ticket, Harris refused to go there.  'The American people sent us here to do a job. And right now there's a lot...
    Mattel has created a Barbie doll to honor the black American journalist Ida B Wells, who was born into slavery and famously helped to found the NAACP. Wells, who was born into slavery in Mississippi in 1862 during the Civil War, was a skilled writer who used her skills as a journalist to draw attention to the conditions experienced by African Americans in the South. She was an activist and researcher who battled sexism and racism across the late 19th and early 20th centuries, founding the National Association of Colored Women's Club and helping to set up the NAACP. Now, Wells is being honoured by Mattel as the toy company have created a Barbie doll of the prominent civil rights leader.

    After the hiccups of the 2021 edition, the most glamorous night of American cinema puts its destiny in the hands of a talented conductor for the first time in three years. After more or less dangerous trials for three years, the ABC Channel announced on Tuesday that the Oscars evening will take place next March 27, which airs the premier event of the American Film Awards season.

    The Post released a database this week of every elected member of Congress who ever owned slaves. The article attached to the database includes important stories of individuals remembered as abolitionists but who also owned slaves. These large numbers and individual anecdotes only tell one part of the larger story of the effect of slavery on our political system. Why were over 1,700 slaveowners elected to Congress? Why were 12 of the first 18 presidents slaveholders? And why did so many people who didn’t own slaves, or freed their slaves, continue to support pro-slavery laws? While there are of course obvious economic factors, owning slaves produced a lot of wealth, which maintained political power, there are also important structures embedded in our political system that privileged slavery and today continue to privilege reactionary rural white politics. While the word “slave” does not appear in the Constitution until the 13th Amendment, there are many provisions of the document that showed complicity in the perpetuation of slavery as an institution.
