    WOODBINE, Ga. (AP) — A judge has denied a request to stop a county from buying land for a planned spaceport near the Georgia coast, dealing the latest blow to opponents of the project. In an order Thursday, Superior Court Judge Stephen Scarlett denied the request from opponents to restrain Camden County from closing on the land deal until a referendum that would let voters weigh in. The judge said the opponents waited until the last minute for their latest legal move, when they had known since 2015 that county commissioners planned to buy the property. “Plaintiffs could have acted sooner but chose not to, and certainly did not act at their first opportunity,” Scarlett wrote in the order. The ruling now allows the county to close on the property, barring unforeseen circumstances. Officials in the county of 55,000 at the Georgia-Florida line have spent years pursuing Spaceport Camden, calling it a “once-in-a-generation” opportunity that would boost the economy not only by launching satellites into orbit, but also by luring supporting industries and tourists. Opponents say there’s no guarantee the...

    President Joe Biden snapped at a reporter Wednesday who asked if invoking white supremacists like Bull Connor and George Wallace and saying those who didn't support voting rights legislation were in the 'same camp' as them backfired.   'No I didn't say that. Look what I said. Go back and read what I said,' said Biden, getting louder as he made each statement, to Real Clear Politics reporter Phil Wegmann. 'And tell me if you think I called anyone who voted on the side of - the position taken by Bull Connor - that they were Bull Connor.' At Wednesday's White House press conference marking the end of Biden's first year in office, Wegmann pointed out that Biden had campaigned on a 'return to civility.'  'No I didn't say that.

    President Joe Biden lashed out on Wednesday during his national press conference when a reporter reminded him he compared opponents for eliminating the filibuster for voting rights to dead segregationists. Biden last week said in Atlanta that those who stand in the way of his election reform legislation must decide whose side they are on. The president inferred those who are in favor of salvaging the filibuster are allied with notorious racists. During his nearly two-hour press conference on Wednesday, Biden was reminded of the comments by Philip Wegmann with RealClearPolitics, and he went from pleasant to ruffled. Weggman asked, “You know, you campaigned and you ran on a return to civility and I know that you dispute the characterization that you called folks who would oppose those voting bills as being Bull Connor or George Wallace, but you said that they would be sort of in the same camp?” Biden lost his temper a bit in his response. Biden said, “No, I didn’t say that. Look, what I said, go back and read what I said! And tell me, if you think I called anyone who voted on the side of a position taken by Bull Connor that...
