    The U.S. recently fell out of the rankings of democratic nations, and one expert worries that it will happen again -- and tip the country into civil war. Barbara Walter, a University of California professor and an expert on civil conflicts, recently wrote about the political volatility in the U.S. since the Jan. 6 insurrection, which dropped the country into the anocracy zone, and she told CNN the riot had made the deadly risks from Donald Trump's lies "impossible to deny and ignore." "Anocracies are neither fully democratic nor fully autocratic; their citizens enjoy some elements of democratic rule (e.g., elections), while other rights (e.g., due process or freedom of the press) suffer," Walter wrote for the Washington Post. "In the last weeks of Donald Trump’s presidency, the respected Center for Systemic Peace (CSP) calculated that, for the first time in more than two centuries, the United States no longer qualified as a democracy. It had, over the preceding five years, become an anocracy." President Joe Biden's peaceful inauguration moved the polity ranking back into the democratic zone, but Walter...
    The newest addition to Fox News’ lineup, "Lawrence Jones Cross Country," debuts on Saturday at 10 p.m. ET and the program’s namesake host has a pretty good idea of what Americans expect from the show that will feature him speaking with ordinary people that don’t usually have a platform.  "They don’t want all this high-class talk. They want something that is simple, and related, and that they care about," Lawrence Jones told Fox News Digital. "I’m from Texas, and I’m too country to try and be fancy… if I try and start talking all high class, I’m going to butcher the word. I’m just gonna be me, and we’ll see what happens." "Lawrence Jones Cross Country" will air on Saturdays at 10 p.m. ET on Fox News Channel.  (Fox News) FOX NEWS NAMES LAWRENCE JONES, BRIAN KILMEADE HOSTS OF NEW WEEKEND PRIMETIME LINEUP The 29-year-old Jones is humbled to have his own show at such a young age.

    Despite blasting the podcast superstar for taking Ivermectin instead of the Covid-19 vaccine, Howard Stern said he doesn’t want to see Joe Rogan cancelled or even censored. Stern made the comments while addressing Neil Young’s shared and now deleted statement requesting that his music be removed from Spotify over Joe Rogan’s Covid-19 vaccine comments. “I don’t listen to Joe Rogan. I know Joe from 100 years ago,” Stern said on his SiriusXM radio show. “We’re no longer friendly. We were friendly at one point — I just knew him as the funny guy, as a comedian — I knew him before he was on Fear Factor actually. I know that his podcast is very popular, they say.” Stern continued that even though he and Rogan are no longer pals, he respects Rogan’s ability to build an audience. “I am for any performer who can get any money and get paid,” Stern said about Rogan’s $100 million deal for Spotify to host his podcast. “I’m happy for any young man or woman who can get paid in show business because so many...
    Aaron Rodgers is back where he started after losing to the San Francisco 49ers in Saturday night’s divisional-round game. And his future with the Green Bay Packers is again on shaky grounds. Rodgers, 34, admitted to reporters after the Packers' shocking 13-10 loss that he didn’t expect his season to end so soon.  49ERS STUN TOP-SEEDED PACKERS, ADVANCE TO NFC CHAMPIONSHIP  "A little numb, for sure. I didn’t think it was gonna end like this."

    “Don’t plant a pest!” You may wonder what the difference is between a weed and an invasive plant. Let’s just say that invasive plants are weeds, only much worse. Weeds are unwanted plants that appear in cultivated areas. They can be either native or non-native, but they have a tendency to grow only in areas that are tended by humans. They rely on irrigation, fertilization, tilling and other horticultural interventions to survive. They generally don’t do well in natural areas that are untouched by humans. Invasive plants can be native, but most are not. They have a tendency to escape into wild areas and take over from the native species. Once established, they will choke out native plants completely and disrupt the ecosystem. Insects and other creatures can, in turn, be choked out due to their habitat and food sources being replaced. For instance, areas that have been overtaken by giant reed no longer have songbirds because the native insects have nothing to eat, which, in turn, leaves nothing for the birds to eat. Invasive plants can change soil fertility...
    DEAR MISS MANNERS: My extended family has a history of division — people not speaking to one another for years. I am guilty, too, but it’s a multigenerational pattern I’d like to end in support of the next generation. I write as we are planning our daughter’s wedding. We are brimming over with joy, but there is one little burr in the saddle: One of my sisters has decided not to speak to me or our other sister. I have just learned from a mutual friend that Silent Sister is coming to the wedding, and that is good. But I don’t want Silent Sister to feel awkward, lurking about the fringes of the event like a coyote in the brush. My thought is to email all family members, including Silent Sister, asking them to volunteer for enjoyable tasks at the wedding, such as decorating the donkey with flowers or feeding the longhorns so they show up for the photographer.

    Former President Donald J. Trump joined "Hannity" on Thursday for a wide-ranging, exclusive interview one day after President Joe Biden's press conference. Trump commented on Biden's roundly-criticized remark about a potential "minor incursion" into Ukraine by Russian forces, but also offered diplomatic support for the president, regardless of their personal differences. "It was a very sad time for our country. I want him to forget politics, I want him to do well. He's got to do well," Trump said of Biden. "Our country is in trouble… I don't think we've ever had anything like it in this country. When you look at that horrible situation in Afghanistan, the way they got out, getting out was good but the way they got out, we could have gotten that with strength and with dignity and kept Bagram [Air Base]."

    Former President Donald Trump said on Thursday that he hopes President Joe Biden succeeds in the White House during a lengthy interview with Fox News. Trump, who has made a number of uncharacteristic or peculiar remarks in recent weeks, including encouraging Covid vaccines, joined Fox News host Sean Hannity by phone. Hannity reminded Trump that Biden had delivered a marathon speech a day earlier, which Trump did not address specifically. But while commenting on Biden’s overall job performance after one year, which Trump told Hannity’s viewers he does not approve of, the former president wished his White House successor well: I want him – forget politics – I want him to do well. He’s got to do well. Our country’s in trouble. What’s happened in the last year, I don’t think we’ve had anything like it in this country. When you look at that horrible situation in Afghanistan, the way they got out. Getting out was good, but the way they got out, we could have got there with strength and with dignity and kept Bagram, which is right next...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki has refused to speculate when Americans might follow the UK and finally get back to normal by ditching masks and COVID passports, despite a slowdown in cases.  Asked on Fox News's America's Newsroom on Thursday whether the US could expect to follow the UK's example by scrapping COVID restrictions, Psaki said 'we want to get back to a point where we’re not wearing masks' but went on to describe the current situation in the US as 'the height of a pandemic'. A day after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that England will scrap all restrictions, including mandatory isolation - she refused to be drawn on a timeline for when Americans might expect to experience the same hope of normalcy.  Emphasizing the importance of vaccination, Psaki went on to say: 'We don’t want to live like this. You heard the president say ‘we don’t want to live like this forever. 'We want to get back to a point where we’re not wearing masks, of course. Where we are not worried about our kids being in...
    Tetra Images | Tetra images | Getty Images This tax-filing season is expected to be difficult, as the IRS works through millions of unprocessed returns, according to a report from the National Taxpayer Advocate. An error-free return may avoid delays, and IRS transcripts can help, tax experts say. While most who file electronically and use direct deposit will see refunds issued within 21 days, mistakes can halt the process by flagging your return for a manual review.  There was a flood of roughly 9 million "math error" notices from the IRS from Jan. 1 through July 15, 2021, with 7.4 million caused by stimulus payment mistakes. What's worse, there were fewer than 15,000 workers to handle the 240 million incoming calls during the first half of 2021, which is one person for every 16,000 calls.More from Smart Tax Planning:Here's a look at more tax-planning news.

    DEAR HARRIETTE: I don’t want to support my friend’s YouTube channel publicly because I don’t like their content. Harriette Cole  I have a lot of followers, and I only co-sign things that I absolutely love. Should I be completely honest with them about this? I don’t want to hurt my friend’s feelings, but I think their feelings are already hurt by my lack of public support for their channel anyway. Bad Content DEAR BAD CONTENT: This is a great question and extremely challenging. On one hand, you can “play dumb” and say nothing, but as you point out, that doesn’t mean your friend will stop wondering why the dis. You can be honest as well. The question is, how much honesty is right for the moment? When you look at your friend’s channel, what bothers you about it? Is the quality of the content poor? Is it in poor taste? Is it amateurish? Is it salacious? What about the content bothers you — specifically? When you are crystal clear about what bothers you, you can decide what information is worth...

    This one goes out to all you lovebirds who got engaged over the holidays and are now left planning a wedding with zero event-planning experience. Somehow you’re expected to craft a day that’s traditional, yet modern. Well-attended, yet intimate. It’s about you as a couple, but also shouldn’t be offensive to any of your guests. And most crucially, don’t overspend, but make sure it looks expensive. Sure, weddings are fun, but the most important part of any wedding is everything that happens after — your real life, together. Don’t start that life with credit card debt that lasts until your fifth anniversary. If you focus your spending on what you and your guests will actually notice, and skip expensive things no one really cares about, you’ll have a beautiful wedding without the debt. ESTABLISH YOUR BUDGET Before you plan anything, set a budget based on what you (and your families, if they’re contributing) can afford. Make every decision with that number in mind, whether it’s $250, $5,000 or $50,000. At its core, a wedding is simply...

    Former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, a Democrat, said on Tuesday he fears the far left’s impact on midterms this November. "It has nothing to do with being Republican or Democrat. It’s about selling a product and knowing your customer," Levine told "Fox & Friends" host Ainsley Earhardt. 2022 MIDTERMS: WILL A RED WAVE OVERCOME A BLUE WALL?

    IF you told me this time last year we’d still be in this situation, I would have laughed – then probably cried. I recall many moons ago we all thought the pandemic might blow over in a few weeks.

    ON the one hand, mum friends can be a great source of support - after all, no one can understands the trials and tribulations of modern motherhood quite like other parents.

    Fox News contributor Joey Jones guest-hosted Fox & Friends Thursday morning and insisted that he didn’t want to be polarizing just seconds before claiming the Biden administration “didn’t want to defeat the virus.” That’s an insane take, right? Like, who says “I don’t want to do something inflammatory” as a pretext to set something ablaze? The answer, apparently, is Joey Jones. Jones’s comment followed outrage from his fellow guest host, Lawrence Jones, who blasted the CDC for caring more about business needs than science in shortening their quarantine guidelines amid fears that everyday life could be shut down. Thats’ right — a Fox News opinion host who has largely criticized Democratic leaders pursuing a cautious approach to a potentially deadly contagion is NOW saying that the CDC under a Democratic administration isn’t being cautious enough? Come on, people. Joey Jones followed by saying, “You know I want to make a statement here, and I don’t want to be polarizing, but this is a polarizing thing in the country now.” I don’t want to say that what follows is total bullshit,...
    National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci said on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” that people who were refusing to get COVID vaccination were not doing so because of any Biden administration communication error. Anchor Wilfred Frost said, “Switching focus a little bit, Dr. Fauci. I wondered whether you felt there had been a communication error from government officials throughout this pandemic by suggesting initially that the primary reason to get vaccinated was to prevent you from getting COVID at all, as opposed to reducing the severity if you do or when you do catch it, and whether we’re now in rather an awkward position given that earlier calms that so many people are catching COVID if they have already received a vaccination, even if they’ve received a booster. It kind of puts quite an awkward spin on things now.” Fauci said, “Well, I think it was the question of what people interpreted. If you looked at the clinical trial, tens of thousands of people in the original clinical trials, for example, with Moderna and Pfizer, the primary endpoint...

    Dear Amy: I am very upset. “Lizzie” and I have been best friends since we attended daycare together, and now we are juniors in high school. Amy Dickinson  Lizzie has always been bossy. She wants things to be her way. Lately, it has gotten bad. Lizzie only hangs out with me and gets mad if I hang with other people. So now it’s always just the two of us. But that’s not the worst part. She has been trying to “jokingly” hold my hand and cuddle. I don’t want this. I don’t know what to say to her. I just walk away and make up an excuse to go somewhere else. We’re both girls, which is fine, but this is not me. I am into guys. I don’t want everyone at school thinking I don’t like guys when they see us together. She also gets mad when I am interested in anyone else. I don’t know what’s going on. Is she really just joking? Is she controlling? Uncomfortable Dear Uncomfortable: If Lizzie is isolating you and gets angry and jealous...
    If you’re going to create a collection of NFTs to honor a group of people, it might be worth running the idea by them first. That was the hard lesson learned by a “cryptocurrency media startup” called Itsblockchain this weekend, when it launched and then quickly revoked NFTs for drawings of 46 internet privacy activists. The collection, called “Cipher Punks,” was meant to honor members of the Cypherpunk movement, who promote cryptography as a way to advance online privacy. The Cypherpunks—who started as a small group of computer scientists that met in San Fransisco in the early 1990s—have been credited as pioneers in the area of internet privacy, as well as the inspiration for blockchain-based technology like bitcoin. A number of Cypherpunks, however, were shocked to wake up this weekend and find their likenesses had been used in the collection, the creators of which—despite claiming they intended to “honor” those pictured—did not ask their permission for inclusion. (The original collection also spelled several people’s names wrong, and used “cipher” instead of “cypher” for reasons that remain unclear.) Jillian York,...
