    CNBC’s Jim Cramer said on Monday that it might feel good to sell, but don’t do so in a panic because you might not be able to get back in. Cramer cited bad earnings, fears of tightening by the Fed, and the potential for invasion of Ukraine by Russia as factors in stocks plummeting and some alarm across the board about the market. “Look I’m not negative,” said Cramer to Carl Quintanilla on Squawk on the Street. “I’m trying to give you a positive scenario here. I’m saying when stocks are down this much, Carl, that you shouldn’t just say, ‘Holy cow, I’m getting killed,’ because you should realize you’ve been getting killed.” “So now you have to decide what stocks are down a certain percentage from their high, that still could be worth a great deal,” he said. “And those are ones that you have to do some buying.” After some talk about SPACs, CNBC’s David Faber circled back to the general sense of dread. “But Jim, it’s extended far beyond that part of the market to names that...
    New York (CNN Business)Potentially abysmal air travel interruptions were narrowly avoided this week when wireless carriers made a last-minute change to their planned 5G rollout in response to fears that new cell service towers could interfere with a key component on passenger jets that allows them to safely land in low visibility conditions.Warnings of mass flight cancellations came as AT&T, Verizon and the airline industry hashed out a deal to delay 5G deployment around major airports. And on Thursday, the Federal Aviation Administration cleared a greater number of commercial airliners to fly in the situations where pilots consider possible 5G interference to be the most dangerous. Now, nearly 80% of the United States' entire commercial airliner fleet has that clearance.In the end, crisis seemed to be mostly averted. No planes fell out of the sky. And — with a few exceptions — air travel stayed mostly on schedule. But we're not in the clear yet. The 5G-airline snafu: Everything we knowThe agreement to delay 5G deployment around airports is only a temporary fix, and it's not clear if all the...
    New York (CNN Business)The attempt to roll out amped up mobile service across the United States has been a bit of a mess. The aviation industry and transportation regulators are worried about new 5G antennas interfering with a key type of aircraft altimeter that's essential for landing planes in bad weather. But wireless carriers and telecom regulators have said there's nothing to fear. The authorities have been in a weeks-long stalemate. And the whole thing culminated this week with some major international airlines canceling some US flights, as regulators, telecom giants, and airlines blew past a deadline to come to an agreement. AT&T and Verizon are now, yet again, delaying their plans to switch on their new 5G antennas near certain airports. Regulators are still hashing out solutions. And a lot remains unclear.The President of Emirates, Sir Tim Clark, told CNN on Wednesday that the airline was not aware of some of the potential 5G rollout issues until yesterday morning, calling the situation "one of the most delinquent, utterly irresponsible" he has seen in his aviation career.Here's everything we do...
    Tuesday on “CNN Newsroom,” Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs pushed for the passage of voting rights legislation to preserve the United States’ “democracy.” With the legislation stalled in the Senate, Hobbs, a Democratic gubernatorial candidate, was asked if she agreed that Republicans are just putting up a better fight than the Democrats. Hobbs replied that “we are at a defining moment in our democracy” because if voting rights were not expanded, she does not know if “we have a democracy.” “[W]e are at a defining moment in our democracy. And if we don’t have voting rights, I don’t know that we have a democracy,” Hobbs outlined. “And so, I’ve been really clear that every member of the Senate needs to take every action they can to make sure that these two really critical bills pass, including our senators here in Arizona. But we can’t let the Republicans off the hook.” She continued, “In 2006, the re-authorization of the Voting Rights Act was passed unanimously. And it is astounding to me that we’re at this place where it is now...

    IT was a double disappearance that stunned America. But six weeks after coroners confirmed Brian Laundrie's cause of death and more than four months after Gabby Petito's body was found a number of questions still remain. 8Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie both died in 2021 8The two embarked on a road trip that they filmed for their 'van life' videos before their deaths Namely, what the FBI findings are in the case and whether any charges will be brought. Those following the disappearances online also point to the mystery of the Laundrie family camping trip and what exactly Brian told his parents when he returned home without Gabby. Here The Sun looks at what we still don’t know about the deaths of Laundrie and his girlfriend Gabby. WHAT ARE THE FBI FINDINGS? The FBI investigation into Gabby's death remains open.

    Dan Bongino shredded Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Monday as the congresswoman, whose state has strict mask mandates, was seen maskless in Florida last week. “Just don’t come to Florida, okay? It’s a free country, I can’t tell AOC what to do unlike the tyrannical lunatic, you know, anti-free speech left. I actually believe in freedom. You can travel where you want. Having said that, why? Why do you want to come down here? You say you hate us,” said Bongino on Fox & Friends. “We’re, you know, white nationalists, Nazis, fascists, racists, transphobic, homophobic, istaphobic (sic), phoba-phobic … Anything with a phob … You say you hate us. We’re all backwards … we’re like a bunch of … rednecks,” he continued. “Every insult that you can throw at conservative America. Which is ridiculous and absurd you throw at us. So why do you want to be around us?” Bongino went on to say that as far as he’s concerned, Ocasio-Cortez isn’t welcome in the Sunshine State. Just go away. Don’t come down here.

    Traders work during the IPO for Chinese ride-hailing company Didi Global Inc on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) floor in New York City, U.S., June 30, 2021.Brendan McDermid | Reuters BEIJING — Half a year since the rush of Chinese IPOs to the U.S. dried up, many details remain unknown for companies wanting to pursue such international listings. Since the fallout over Chinese ride-hailing app Didi's IPO in late June, authorities have increased their scrutiny of Chinese companies raising billions of dollars in U.S. public markets. A 10-year high of 34 China-based companies listed in the U.S. this year, but only three of the IPOs have occurred since July, according to Renaissance Capital. Regulators in both countries have issued clarifications this month on what's needed from Chinese companies to go public in the U.S. While it's a start, many questions about implementation remain. Over the Christmas holiday weekend on Wall Street, the China Securities Regulatory Commission released proposed rules for domestic companies if they want to list overseas. The public comment period ends Jan. 23. The CSRC's proposed rules...
    A few years ago I started on antidepressants. I dithered for many years about taking meds—for a variety of reasons. I was suspicious of Big Pharma. I was convinced the drugs wouldn’t do much for my mental and emotional health—after all, nothing ever had before. And somewhere, in the back of my mind, going on antidepressants seemed like a copout. Shouldn’t I be able to power through to optimal mental health by dint of my preternaturally stiff Upper Midwestern lip? Fortunately, thanks to the gentle wheedling of a compassionate (non-Midwestern) therapist, I eventually relented, and she referred me to a psychiatrist who could hook me up. I cried during my first psychiatric appointment when the doctor said she’d seen plenty of people whose lives had been completely transformed by meds. Up until that point, nothing had been able to clear the black—or, at the very least, gray—cloud that had followed me around for as long as I could remember. My official diagnosis was dysthymia—aka persistent depressive disorder. It’s a dry technical term that, for me, translated into a perduring, unshakable feeling that life simply wasn’t...
    Things have been unsettling for Ravens defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale. From injuries to COVID, the team has been forced to make adjustments on the fly while players are thrown into unexpected roles. The Ravens will head into Sunday’s pivotal divisional matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals with 11 defensive players on the injured reserve and nine on the reserve/COVID-19 list. All Martindale can do is look at the roster and be amazed about how much has changed since training camp. “If you go from the beginning of the season with our roster to right now, I don’t know if we are playing football or the Squid Games,” Martindale said, referencing the popular Netflix show that features contestants competing in children’s games with deadly stakes. “I mean, It’s crazy how things have changed so much.” In the Ravens’ 31-30 loss against the Green Packers on Sunday, they were without their entire secondary, as safety Chuck Clark landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list a few days before the game. Clark’s absence prompted safety Geno Stone to call the defensive signals...
    A DAD-OF-FOUR lives in a 6,000 square foot underground bunker and refuses to compromise its “integrity” so he’s ready for a potential nuclear disaster. Artist and web consultant Ruben Romero, 45, started brainstorming ideas about where he’d like to live around eight years ago as he realized suburban life in Peachtree City, Georgia wasn’t for him. 7Marketing and web consultant Ruben Romero opted to buy a nuclear bunker after living in the suburbsCredit: Ruben Romero 7Ruben said he wouldn't be surprised if renovating the bunker cost between $300,000-$500,000Credit: Ruben Romero He came up with ideas such as a boat, island, or submarine before learning that some people were renovating 1960s style nuclear bunkers. Ruben and his wife Joan, also 45, viewed the bunker, located in the Midwest, and fell in love with it. They spent years trying to turn the idea into reality, before moving into their new home in July 2020. Three of their four kids, Enoch 18, Zion 15, and Celestial, 12, also live in the bunker. Ruben told The Sun that his “ultimate vision” is...
    BRIGHTON manager Graham Potter admits he does not know “how long we can stay on this path for” with the Omicron crisis sweeping through Premier League clubs. The Seagulls boss revealed a request to the Prem to postpone their 1-0 defeat to Wolves was denied with up to four players suffering positive Covid-19 tests. 1Potter is worried about the impact Omicron is having on Premier League footballCredit: Getty And next up they travel to Old Trafford to face another Covid-hit side in Manchester United. Asked whether there needs to be a break from football to get the variant outbreak under control, Potter said: “I haven’t given it much thought. On the ground it is difficult. “We all want football and life to continue as best we can but clearly health is the most important thing. "This week has been a bit disturbing in terms of how quickly we have been affected so if that carries on we need some serious thought. "In the vacuum when you don’t know and its case by case, there will be frustrations. It would be...
    Barriers to obtaining a clear picture of violence against trans and gender-nonconforming people remain, experts say. At least 50 transgender and gender-nonconforming people have been killed this year across the country, according to a report compiled by the Human Rights Campaign. This marks the highest number of such killings since records have been kept: Last year, at least 44 trans and gender-nonconforming people suffered violent deaths, the previous highest number recorded. The words "at least" when describing the number of deaths is key to understanding the figures: It reflects what the people tracking them don't know, due to a lack of a reliable data collection, inaccurate information shared by police, and other barriers to obtaining a clear picture of violence against trans and gender-nonconforming people. The most recent death the Human Rights Campaign lists is that of Nikai David, a 33 year-old Black transgender woman. The Advocate reported that David, a model who was said to have wanted to start her own clothing business, was found on a street in West...
    Daily Kos senior political writer Joan McCarter joined Michelangelo Signorile on his show earlier this week, where they discussed why democracy in America is increasingly at risk—especially as we head toward 2024—and what’s happening with the fight over the debt ceiling. Signorile and McCarter opened the show with some context from Barton Gellman’s recent piece in The Atlantic, which explores how conservatives are learning lessons from former president Donald Trump’s failure to carry out a coup. As Gellman writes, they have been working hard to make sure that next time, they succeed. Far from being sneaky about it, Republicans are hardly being discrete in laying out the groundwork for the next coup, McCarter argued. “We’re seeing it in state after state after state, where they are passing increasingly egregious legislation to keep people from voting, to overturn the results of the election by taking over various elections boards in key counties, and by just allowing the Big Lie to continue to fester at pretty much every level of the Republican party.” The compelling case Gellman has made about the very real and urgent threat to democracy has largely gone unheeded—or at...
    During the town hall, Fauci claimed that the new variant's emergence in the U.S. shouldn't cause Americans to change their holiday travel plans. But he did use the news as a platform to encourage adult Americans to receive booster shots and children aged 5 to 11 to receive their first dose of the vaccine. "If you can, just get vaccinated as soon as you can, and right now is the time to get boosted," Fauci said. The public health official has been a vocal supporter of the widespread administration of booster shots. Last month in an interview with Axios, he remarked that it's "extremely important for people to get boosters" and indicated that boosters would ultimately become "a part of the standard regimen" in fighting off the pandemic.
    WE don’t know much yet about Omicron – the new variant of the Covid virus. But we do know a lot about the vaccines that have been protecting us during the past year — and we have no reason to believe that those vaccines won’t work against this latest strain of the virus. 2We don't know much about the new Omicron strain but we do about jabs and they workCredit: The Sun This week it will be 12 months ago that Pfizer’s Covid vaccine was given Government approval, and since then we have learned that being jabbed does work and definitely keeps people out of hospital. I don’t need studies — I’ve seen it with my own eyes. Being vaccinated is our best tool against the virus, so we must continue to accelerate its use, as we did when the Delta variant arrived here in March. In Bolton, where I have been leading the vaccination programme, we have had five serious waves of Covid. Each time it was people without a vaccine falling ill that saw our hospital and...
    (CNN Business)A version of this article first appeared in the "Reliable Sources" newsletter. You can sign up for free right here.Friday's satirical headline by The Onion said it best: "Nation Nearly Strings Together 3 Good Days In Row."The blessing of Thanksgiving on Thursday was followed by a curse on Friday: Urgent news about the new Covid variant named Omicron. The reality is that "we know almost nothing about the Omicron variant," as this headline on The Atlantic's website helpfully states. But the abrupt reactions to the news -- stock selloffs, travel restrictions, endless Twitter threads -- made Omicron the top story of the weekend across all sorts of news websites and networks.Now the world is in a sort of information holding pattern, as reflected by this banner on CNN Sunday afternoon: "QUESTIONS & CONCERNS BUT STILL SPARSE DATA ON NEW COVID VARIANT." Sociologist Zeynep Tufekci put it this way: "South Africa has gifted us an early warning with Omicron. But earlier the warning, the less we know."Author and podcaster Derek Thompson, one of the smartest voices out there about the...
    THERE are loads of reasons why Aldi is one of our favourite places to shop - and it's not just the cheap prices that keeps sucking us in. In fact, the German supermarket chain - made popular by its speedy check-out and no-fuss shopping - has become a go-to for many, but there are some things we should all know. 2Aldi workers have revealed what you should know about shopping in-storeCredit: Getty The check-out is different A former employee previously revealed the reason why Aldi staff move at super-speed when scanning your items. And it's because they once had scanning targets to meet - although this isn't the case anymore. Another reason check-out workers are able to move so swiftly is because Aldi products have multiple barcodes, a former worker told My London. This means staff don't have to fumble about in search of where to scan - and you can whizz through in minutes. What's more, the length of the conveyor belt was specifically designed for customers to be able to unload a...
    Emily Ratajkowski has revealed a male casting agent made a vile comment about her modelling photos when she was still in secondary school.  Writing in her new book, My Body, Emily, 30, claims the unnamed man said: 'Now this is the look... This is how we know this girl gets f****d,' while browsing her portfolio. Emily, who began working aged 12, also writes that she was branded 'too sexy' when she was aged just 13 and wrote: 'I was a child... But somehow already an expert in detecting male desire, even if I didn't completely understand what to make of it.'  Emily said she's 'tired' of being a sex symbol after 17 years of objectification by male colleagues in the fashion industry.

    Dave Portnoy has hit back at Business Insider after they published an article accusing him of preying on young women and having rough sex, calling their journalism 'sloppy' and 'total bulls***' in an hour-long rant online. The Barstool Sports founder, 44, was the subject of an explosive November 4 article in Business Insider by freelance writer Julia Black after the reporter spent eight and a half months researching the outspoken blogger and those around him. Portnoy was accused by two woman - Allison, 19, and 20-year-old Madison, both of whom were given aliases - of aggressive and unpleasant sexual behavior, filming them without permission and leaving them feeling humiliated and traumatized. Allison, Portnoy said on Thursday, messaged him repeatedly after they had sex: saying she wanted to see him again; laughing about 'bragging' about being with him; saying she was flattered that he replied to her messages; and giving him her phone number so they could stay in touch. A third woman, Instagram influencer Ava Louise, told Business Insider she exchanged messages with Portnoy in 2017 after he reached out...
    Thursday on his “Fearless” podcast, journalist Jason Whitlock mocked MSNBC’s election coverage of the Virginia gubernatorial race. Earlier this week, MSNBC’s Joy Reid claimed education, which played a big role in the race, was “code for white parents don’t like the idea of teaching about race.” Whitlock questioned why Reid, who he dubbed “Racial Maddow,” would make knowing Thomas Jefferson’s history a priority in 2021. He said it seemed Democrats don’t want others to “experience success in America, joy in America, pride in America” until they were aware Jefferson owned slaves. “Joy Reid, who I love to call Racial Maddow, retreated away from Critical Race Theory to saying, ‘White people just don’t want to know who Thomas Jefferson was.’ It’s really not about Critical Race Theory — it’s about who Thomas Jefferson was,” Whitlock advised. “Not only is that the argument — like, that’s the priority,” he added. “In 2021, in order for me to experience success in America, joy in America, pride in America, I have to go all the way back and reassess who Thomas Jefferson was. That’s the...
    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher stated, “I know some people seem to not want to give up on the wonderful pandemic, but you know what? It’s over.” And that vaccinated people shouldn’t have to wear masks, and “We shouldn’t fire people who have natural immunity because they don’t get the vaccine.” Maher said, “I’m not sure what the latest Dr. Fauci thing was on Halloween, he’s change[d] his mind a lot but I think it was go and do it. I hope so. Because it certainly has been my position since the beginning of this, just resume living. I mean, come on, the 15 of 100,000, that’s where we are cases in California, 15 cases per 100,000 people, I know some people seem to not want to give up on the wonderful pandemic, but you know what? It’s over. There’s always going to be a variant, you shouldn’t have to wear masks.” He added, “[A]lso, vaccine, mask, pick one. You’ve got to pick. You can’t make me mask if I’ve had the vaccine.” Maher further...
    During a press conference on Thursday, Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo expressed skepticism toward Covid-19 vaccines. Ladapo was flanked by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and people holding signs reading “Freedom Has A Home Here,” and also signs resembling the Gadsden Flag (“Don’t Tread On Me”), but featuring an alligator instead of a snake. The top doctor proceeded to call into question the effectiveness of the vaccine and also suggested its longterm effects are unknown. “It’s just an unbelievable time in the country,” said Florida’s top doctor. “You wake up each day and you wonder what new, unprecedented policy step some leader in, unfortunately California, a state that I lived in and really enjoyed.” Ladapo was formerly a researcher at the UCLA School of Medicine until DeSantis tapped him to be surgeon general in September. At the presser he denounced “extreme policies” that failed to assess risks versus benefits. “I mean you hear these stories of people telling you what’s been happening in their lives,” said Ladapo. “Nurses, pregnant women who are being forced to, you know, to sort of put...
     Dr. Sanjay Gupta addressed the theory that Covid-19 accidentally leaked from a lab in Wuhan while sitting down with Joe Rogan, telling the podcast host that “we may never know” the truth about the virus’ origin. Rogan invited Gupta to Wednesday’s edition of his podcast to ask about gain of function research, which the National Institute of Health (NIH) describes as “a type of research that modifies a biological agent so that it confers new or enhanced activity to that agent. Some scientists use the term broadly to refer to any such modification.” Rogan asked CNN’s chief medical correspondent about documents obtained by The Intercept that showed the United States has funded research on several types of coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. The documents also include details on the work of EcoHealth Alliance, which The Intercept labeled, a U.S.-based health organization that used federal money to fund bat coronavirus research at the Chinese laboratory.” “They applied for a grant to specifically do — to insert a furin cleavage site — which is that particular part of the virus that raised...
    Former senior Trump administration health official Adm. Brett Giroir admitted late last week that the Trump administration “could have done better” responding to the coronavirus pandemic. CNN’s New Day on Friday played a clip of former White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, who came out with a book last week about her time in the White House that paints the previous administration in an unflattering light, saying that the Trump administration’s handling of the pandemic “was tragic.” “I think that the president’s vanity got in the way. He was working for his base. He was not working for this country,” she said the previous Tuesday. The clip fast-forwarded to her saying, “I was part of that. And I don’t think I’ll ever forgive myself with respect to Covid. I don’t think I can ever redeem myself.” Co-host Brianna Keilar asked Giroir if he agreed with Grisham’s “assessment of how the White House handled this under [Donald] Trump.” Giroir fired back at Grisham. “I don’t know her view. I don’t remember Stephanie Grisham ever being in the Situation Room and the task force when we debated the issues,” he said. “I know in that sit room,...

Taking to Reddit the desperate mum confessed to wanting to “run away” as a result of her tot’s violent tantrums. 1A desperate mum has revealed how she is being evicted from her home because her toddler won't stop screamingCredit: Getty But to add to her torment, her next-door-neighbour and landlord was now booting them out of their home after becoming sick of her daughter’s incessant shrieks.

    Monica Lewinsky offered her opinion of the rise of cancel culture, and whether or not she was victim to it following her affair with President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, during the New York Times "Sway" podcast Monday. "I see the benefits and I see the detriments,"  Lewinsky told host Kara Swisher. "And really, my top feeling about it is that — and this is how I feel about a lot of things, that they become a catchall phrase. We need to actually divide cancel culture up into what the pieces are. What are we talking about?"  Lewinsky, now an activist and producer, suggested that in some cases the act of canceling can be a positive, such as when it exposes sexual predators who were brought to light in the MeToo movement. But she questioned the effectiveness of cancel culture when it targeted someone who may have had only one misstep in an otherwise clean-cut career, or who has "evolved" since an act of indiscretion.  "Are we talking about a MeToo scenario, where someone has been a sexual predator, abused...
    Snoop Dog says Prince Harry and William are his boys EV charging tech provider Wallbox goes public by merging with SPAC Kensington Capital Acquisition © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad The Patriots fell short against the Buccaneers in Tom Brady‘s return to Gillette Stadium on Sunday night, but there were things to like about the way they played in the 19-17 loss. One of them was the performance of quarterback Mac Jones. Jones completed 19 straight passes at one point in the game and finished the night 31-of-40 for 275 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. That outing was crucial on a night when the Patriots could not run the ball and it provided hope that Jones’ future will be bright in New England. The rookie lamented his turnover and said the Patriots “don’t really do moral victories,” but admitted there were positive steps for the offense over the course of the evening. “Yeah, I do. I think we moved in the right direction,” Jones said. “You know, we made...
    Former federal prosecutor and MSNBC legal analyst Glenn Kirschner told radio host Dean Obeidallah that if the DOJ won’t prosecute ex-president Donald Trump for his “obvious crimes” then a “citizen’s arrest” might be the last and necessary resort. On SiriusXM’s Dean Obeidallah Show on Friday, the host quoted a Thursday tweet from New Jersey Democrat Rep. Bill Pascrell, who wrote that “267 days ago terrorists ransacked the US Capitol and hours later 138-of-202 House republicans voted to make Trump a dictator.” “This is what I want to see from more Democrats!” said Obeidallah to Kirschner. “It takes an 84-year-old Italian American guy from Jersey where I’m from–and he went to Fordham [University] like I went to Fordham– where we speak bluntly and I don’t know why we don’t see from others. So what’s your reaction to Congressman Pascrell?” “I’m glad he’s speaking the sorta of objective truth. When somebody commits crimes they need to be held accountable, they need to be arrested, indicted and tried by a jury of their peers,” Kirschner replied. “It seems like so many of...
    Gov. Gavin Newsom swatted away the effort to recall him on Tuesday, as Democratic strongholds turned out in large numbers to vote ‘no’ on the recall and keep him in office. Speaking shortly after several major news outlets called the race, Newsom gave a brief speech in Sacramento. “‘No’ is not the only thing that was expressed tonight,” he said. “I want to focus on what we said yes to as a state.” He continued, We said yes to science. We said yes to vaccines. We said yes to ending this pandemic. We said yes to people’s right to vote without fear of fake fraud or voter suppression. We said yes to women’s fundamental constitutional right to decide for herself what she does with her body and her fate and future. We said yes to diversity. We said yes to inclusion. We said yes to pluralism. We said yes to all those things that he we hold dear as Californians, and I would argue as Americans. Newsom cited a statement that former President Donald Trump made in which he claimed that...

    Attorney General Ken Paxton (R-TX) warned that Texas is unable to verify what screening measures, if any, were applied to Afghan migrants and refugees seeking resettlement in America. The federal government has not shared its vetting procedures with Texas, Paxton said on Thursday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. “We don’t have any confidence in the Biden administration [to vet Afghan migrants],” Paxton remarked. “When you look at the border and how they’re just inviting people to come across … obviously the cartels are involved in every transaction, because you have to pay them to get across the border.” The Biden administration’s policies toward border security enrich transnational criminal cartels by facilitating the trafficking of drugs, people, and weapons into the U.S., Paxton stated. “We’ve got the Biden administration helping the cartels, helping them import drugs, helping them import COVID into our state, helping them import sex trafficking and other human trafficking,” he said, “and yet here we are with the Afghan refugees.” He went on, “We don’t know anything about them. It’s very likely...
    CNN medical contributor Dr. Leana Wen argued Wednesday on CNN’s “Newsroom” for a “national proof of vaccination system,” which she said should be more elaborate than “pieces of paper that can be easily faked.” Anchor Ana Cabrera said, “We are learning the president’s speech tomorrow will include these announcements on mandates and testing. What do you hope these announcements are more specifically? Wen said, “Well, I hope that President Biden will do three really important things. First is to mandate vaccinations on planes and trains, places that he has jurisdiction over. There are a lot of people who are still on the fence about getting vaccinated. If they know, they have to be vaccinated in order to travel to see friends and family, to do business travel, et cetera, that can really put them over the edge.” She continued, “The second thing is we really need to get behind a proof of vaccination system. We know that the honor code doesn’t work. You don’t board a plane. You don’t go to the airport and say I am who I say...
    Not many people would have the gall to compare Megan Rapinoe and Donald Trump – two public enemies with vastly different views on social and political issues. Trump is in favor of “shut up and dribble.” Rapinoe, a star for the US women’s national soccer team believes athletes are being “selfish” if they don’t use their platform to speak out against injustices. But according to Rapinoe, she’s not totally unlike Trump. “I am who I am all the time,” Rapinoe said during CNN’s TV premiere of the documentary LFG on Monday — which previously debuted on the HBO Max streaming service . “It’s not like some act. I mean, I don’t know if I want to make this comparison, but in the same ways that people liked that Trump just said some wild ass shit, but, like, I’m like that, but for good. You know? And like, we need more of that.” Last month, Trump mocked Rapinoe and the entire USWNT for not winning gold at the Tokyo Olympics. “If our soccer team, headed by a radical group of Leftist...
    CNN anchor Don Lemon on Wednesday during the handoff from fellow anchor Chris Cuomo said we did not yet know if we left “behind” Americans and Afghan allies stranded in Afghanistan. Lemon said, “Listen, I understand the emotion around it but let’s be a little bit unemotional here, if we can. Wars are terrible. This is our longest war. I think in any situation, whether you agree with the exit or not, you’re not going to get all of the people out that you want in the time period. I think that is asking for something that’s not — you can’t accomplish that. It’s just not going to happen in any situation.” He continued, “I think people should stop beating up on the administration so much because no matter how it ended, everyone wasn’t going to be happy with the way it ended. So, if there’s any silver lining in this, it’s going to be what happens going forward. You can’t change the past. You can’t bring those lives back as awful as that is. And so, you know, I...
    Newly appointed New York State Governor Kathy Hochul took what can only be called a clear shot at her predecessor, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, during a press conference in Queens, NY to address the flash-flooding that has claimed 22 lives so far in the New York City metropolitan area. Torrential rain and at least one tornado “paralyzed” New York City, according to Hochul’s earlier appearance on CNN Thursday morning, shutting down subway and roads and highways cluttered with abandoned cars due to upwards to three inches of rain within one hour in some parts of the region. Appearing with other elected officials to address the current state of emergence, Hochul showed confidence and command of the situation. She was so in control that she effortlessly drew a sharp contrast between her and her predecessor without skipping a beat. Following the words of an NYC Councilmember, Hochul added a few comments before taking questions. “To the people that live here on this street and throughout the city of New York, we want them to know, a new administration, my administration, we...
    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) said the Taliban is “hunting” those still in Afghanistan, and Congress hasn’t seen the Biden administration’s plan to leverage the safe passage of American citizens and allies in Afghanistan. Moulton added that because Congress doesn’t know the plan, “people who are left behind are trying to figure out what they do next. We don’t even know what to tell them.” Moulton said, “They are hunting these people, and I know that from firsthand accounts. And so, this is the second big thing that we need to do, Chris, is, one, we need to take care of the refugees in these camps. Two, let’s not forget that there are a lot of people that we left behind, a few hundred American citizens, but thousands of allies that we weren’t able to rescue. And the whole idea is that we’ll have some leverage with the Taliban to ensure their safe passage down the road now that the Taliban controls the country and we don’t have any presence there whatsoever. But as...

    A government worker in Afghanistan told Fox News on Tuesday that her family was allegedly “stranded” and unable to get to the Kabul airport in order to evacuate. The woman, who was called “Fatima” to protect her real identity, told “Fox & Friends First” that she could not get to the Kabul airport without going through Taliban checkpoints where people were allegedly being beaten and whipped. (RELATED: ‘No Doubt’: Jake Tapper Says Despite Psaki’s Claims, Americans Feel ‘Stranded’ In Afghanistan) WATCH: Fatima began by saying that she had already made several attempts to reach the airport, but had been forced to turn back each time. “We are stranded. We can’t get to the airport. When we tried to get to the airport, we are afraid for our lives,” she said, adding that the Taliban was also going door to door looking for American citizens and anyone who had worked with the United States government. “Our lives are in extreme danger and I don’t know how long it is going to continue,” she continued. She went on to say...
    TENNIS legend Pat Cash has questioned why healthy athletes are taking a coronavirus vaccine. The Australian former ace won five Grand Slams during his time on the circuit. 1Pat Cash believes healthy athletes should wait to see the long-term effects of vaccines before having oneCredit: Getty Images - Getty But Cash is the latest person from the world of tennis to cast doubt over vaccines to combat Covid 19. World No1 Novak Djokovic has been open with his disdain of social distancing rules and quarantine regulations. Meanwhile, world No3 Stefano Tsitsipas revealed ahead of the US Open that he will not get jabbed unless it becomes mandatory to play. And Cash believes healthy athletes should hold off receiving a vaccine as it ‘we just don’t know’ what long-term effects they may have. Cash told TCW TV: “I just don’t want young, healthy athletes taking something that could long-term damage them for no reason. “We just don’t know. Can’t we just wait a year or two years until all the info is out there? And make a decision then. Most read...
    Viewers of Don Lemon Tonight may have noticed that over the past few weeks and months, the eponymous host has gradually been reaching his wits’ end when it comes to those who disregard and downplay the risks of Covid-19. On Thursday, Don Lemon’s show featured bedside interviews with three Covid-infected patients who hadn’t gotten the vaccine, and on Friday’s edition he focused on those who are up in arms over mask mandates in schools. Lemon played a clip of a Dallas County official claiming that Dallas currently has zero ICU beds for children. “That means if your child’s in a car wreck, if your child has a heart — a congenital heart defect or something, needs an ICU bed, or more likely, if they have Covid and need an ICU bed, we don’t have one,” he said. “Your child will have to wait for another child to die.” Dallas hospitals soon thereafter said they had regained ICU bed availability. “In America in 2021?” said Lemon. “In one of the nation’s premier cities? One sick child needs to die before another sick...

    Beirut, Lebanon (CNN)It's been a year since one of the world's largest ever non-nuclear explosions ripped through Lebanon's capital, killing more than 200 people. On any given day in Beirut's worst-affected neighborhoods, theories about the explosion still circulate. No two stories of human tragedy are alike, and most interactions between people here end not with a goodbye, but with an invocation that Lebanon's ruling elite be toppled. The political class is, overwhelmingly, blamed for the disaster.  A year after the Beirut blast, survivors are still grieving, still angry, and still waiting for justiceAt just after 6 p.m. on August 4, 2020, hundreds of metric tons of ammonium nitrate ignited, sparking the massive blast in the city's port.  The industrial chemicals had been improperly stored there for years due to the failure to act by successive governments and lawmakers across the political divide. That much is clear.Read MoreBut for people across Lebanon, there are still many unanswered questions about what led to the tragedy, and there has been no sense of closure in the 12 months since the explosion.Here's what we still don't know. What triggered the...

    Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution Victor Davis Hanson said Monday that the current crisis at the southern border is like the last days of the Roman Empire. “When we look at people crossing the border … we don’t know who these people are, Tucker, we don’t know if they speak our language or share our values, we don’t even know if they’ve ever voted before and the idea that the moment they come across in the first decision they made was to break U.S. Law,” Hanson told Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “When that happens and we are no different than the Rome with people in the late Fifth Century A.D. coming across the Roman borders — Huns, Vandals, Goths with no difference in their status and Roman citizens and you know what happened after that.” The Roman Empire gradually collapsed from internal turmoil. Hanson said it was important to remember that people who illegally cross the border but are not turned back “will be able to reside here illegally, they would be coequal to a citizen defies the...
    Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-N.Y., urged her Democratic colleagues on Monday to take a more aggressive approach in investigating the Wuhan lab-leak theory after a congressional report revealed that the Wuhan National Biosafety Lab requested bids for major renovations to air safety and waste treatment systems in research facilities just months before the COVID-19 outbreak began. "Republicans in the subcommittee on COVID are going to continue to work with the Foreign Affairs committee to expose what we can find that make the connection that this is a leak from the lab and China is responsible," Malliotakis said on "The Story" Monday. "What we do know is that this lab was genetically modifying coronaviruses and they were doing it in subpar conditions. We also know in September of 2019, there were a number of scientists from the lab that fell ill with symptoms that would be symptoms similar to COVID. and we also know on or before September 2019 is when we assume this leak occurred because on September 12 of 2019, that’s when they pulled their viral sequence database off the website," she explained.
