    A Robeks worker who was branded a 'f**king immigrant loser' and was struck with a smoothie by an irate Merrill Lynch financier who threw a racist tirade at her workplace has said she feared his intentions when he stormed in the store on Saturday.  'It was kind of scary, I'm not going to lie because I'm like 'I don't know his intention or what he was going to do,' 18-year-old Gianna Miranda, who works part-time at the Robeks in Fairfield, Connecticut, told local news station WFSB.  Gianna and two coworkers were the target of 48-year-old James Iannazzo's racist tirade after a smoothie he had purchased at the store, which 'contained peanut butter', caused his son a severe anaphylactic reaction.   Iannazzo's fit of rage was recorded and posted on Tiktok by Charlie Hill, who called 911 while Gianna attempted to make Iannazzo leave the store.  'He started to call her racial slurs. He threatened to kill us multiple times,' Hill, who is 17 according to the social media platform, told WFSB. 'I understand and we are sorry on behalf of Robeks...
    A New York couple from Long Island is facing hate crime charges after verbally and physically attacking an interracial family on public transport. The entire incident was captured on video in which the couple identified as Justin Likerman and Kristin Digesaro harassed the victim, Liz Edelkind, her husband, and their son by shouting anti-immigrant slurs and chucking beer bottles at them. “Look straight! Don't f***ing look at me! I'm going to get arrested tonight!’” Likerman shouted. He continued: “I know it's not worth it, but these f***ing foreigners ain't taking over my f***ing country!” Edelkind and her family were on their way home from a New York Knicks game on  Jan. 10 when the incident took place. The group was looking for seats together on the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) train and asked some passengers to move to accommodate them. That’s when Lickerman and Digesaro seemed to have an issue. “They threw beer at us. My pastor and her husband, and my husband, got in the way to protect me,” Edelkind said. “You have no rights here,” Digesaro yelled as her boyfriend began...

    CINCINNATI (AP) — Joe Burrow took another beating against the top-seeded Tennessee Titans in the divisional round of the playoffs on Saturday. However, he still managed to push and will the Cincinnati Bengals to within one game of the Super Bowl. Now Burrow is faced with the task of outdueling Chiefs star Patrick Mahomes for the second time in a month as the two teams meet again, this time in Kansas City with the AFC championship on the line. Burrow — along with a ball-hawking defense and rookie kicker Evan McPherson — found a way to pull out a 19-16 win over Tennessee on Saturday to advance to the AFC title game for the first time since the 1988 season. The Bengals won despite Burrow being sacked nine times. Burrow is the third quarterback to be sacked nine times in a playoff game. The others are Warren Moon in Houston’s 28-20 loss to Kansas City on Jan. 16, 1994, and the Chiefs’ Len Dawson in a 31-7 win against the Bills in the AFL title game on Jan. 1,...
    THE final Social Security payments for January are going out this week - and they're worth an average of $1,657 thanks to a boosted COLA. A 5.9% cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) has been applied to Social Security benefits for 2022 as inflation has soared. 1Your check arrival depends on your birth date The 5.9% COLA increase was calculated based on data from the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W), which measures changes in the cost of popular goods and services. This boost equates to an average $92 boost a month for beneficiaries, bringing their monthly benefit to $1,657 from $1,565. This is the largest boost to Social Security in about 40 years, and beneficiaries should’ve already received a letter explaining the new COLA rise. However, despite these annual adjustments for inflation, a recent study by Senior Citizens League found that the buying power of Social Security beneficiaries has declined by 30% from 2000 to early 2021. So, this COLA increase might not be all its cracked out to be. The latest inflation data shows that the...
    A financial executive was fired from his position after video footage emerged on social media of him going on a racist tirade and hurling a smoothie at an employee. James Iannazzo, 48, who had worked as a financial adviser with Merrill Lynch since 1995, was let go from his position on Sunday, the company confirmed to the New York Post. Iannazzo was fired after throwing a smoothie at a teenager at a Connecticut Robeks and shouting a slew of obscenities at employees. "Our company does not tolerate behavior of this kind," a statement from Merrill Lynch said. "We immediately investigated and have taken action. This individual is no longer employed at our firm." Iannazzo left the Fairfield Robeks without any incidents around 1:05 p.m., according to a statement from the Fairfield Police Department. He had a smoothie he had ordered for his son, who had a peanut allergy. MERRILL LYNCH FINED FOR OVERCHARGING CUSTOMERS Around 1:39, Iannazzo placed a 911 call after his son had an allergic reaction to the smoothie, according to the statement....
    National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci on Monday was asked to address some of the varying messaging coming from the White House and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic and vaccination. Fauci said it was important to be “clear” and “articulate” with messaging but refused to comment on whether or not the White House and CDC have been clear. “[Y]ou try to be clear and concise and articulate,” Fauci said when asked how to solve the issue of mixed messaging. MSNBC “Stephanie Ruhle Reports” host Stephanie Ruhle asked, “Do you think that’s what’s happened so far?” “Well, I’m not going to comment on that,” Fauci replied. “But let me tell you what I believe is the way to explain that. It’s this issue of what fully vaccinated means versus when you’re optimally protected. So, if I were not vaccinated right now, and I decided I wanted to get vaccinated, and I got my primary — let’s say I got an mRNA and three to four weeks...
    After revealing her dark past, Paris Hilton hopes other young teens will have a brighter future. Nearly a year ago, the reality TV star and entrepreneur testified about abuse she said she suffered years ago at a boarding school in Utah. The 40-year-old lobbied for a bill that would regulate youth residential treatment centers. The hotel heiress is now aiming to examine the "dark secrets and controversial practices" of such schools in a podcast titled "Trapped In Treatment." Hilton told Fox News she was relieved to finally come forward with her story publicly. "It was something that I’ve just been holding in for over 20 years," she explained. "It was just so painful and traumatic that I didn’t want to think about it, but it was always there. I’m just so grateful to have done my [2020] documentary ‘This Is Paris,’ and to have spoken about that because it just made such an impact and such a difference."

    A woman who donated a kidney to a man she was dating, has gone viral on social media after claiming he ended their relationship just months after his operation. Colleen Le, 30, who lives in America, explained that her boyfriend at the time needed a kidney transplant because he was struggling to live with chronic kidney disease that left him needing dialysis at just age 17. She volunteered to donate one of her kidneys after a test proved that they were a match, however less than a year after the operation he cheated and then broke up with her a few months later. The TikTok star has racked up over 2 million likes on her clips sharing the devastating sequence of events, with many praising her for saving her ex-boyfriend's life and commenting that he didn't deserve her.  Colleen Le (pictured), who lives in America, has gone viral on TikTok for a series of clips claiming she was dumped less than a year after donating a kidney to her then boyfriend In one of her first videos, Colleen revealed that...
    James Iannazzo, 48, was arrested on charges of intimidation based on bias, breach of peace and criminal trespass after his racist tirade at a Robeks was caught in video A Merrill Lynch financial advisor was arrested after reportedly throwing a racist tirade at a smoothie store and threatening young staff who 'gave his allergic son a drink containing peanuts.' James Iannazzo, 48, was arrested on charges of intimidation based on bias, breach of peace and criminal trespass Saturday after his fit of rage at the store on 2061 Black Rock Turnpike in Fairfield, Connecticut, was caught in video.  The footage, posted on TikTok by user @cjjbreezy, was recorded by one of the young girls working at the store, after Iannazzo stormed inside demanding to know who was responsible for adding peanut butter to his smoothie order.  The video had more than 16 million views before it was removed on Sunday.  'Shut the f*** up! Stupid f****** idiot. You're a f***** idiot. I want the f***** number. Shut up,' a disgruntled Iannazzo says, demanding to know the number of the corporate office. ...
    Following the Buccaneers’ heartbreaking 30-27 loss to the Rams in the divisional round of the playoffs on Sunday night, Tampa Bay’s star linebacker Lavonte David revealed that the team was dealing with a handful of issues behind closed doors. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM TAMPA, FLORIDA - JANUARY 23: Lavonte David #54 of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers reacts after getting a fumble recovery in the fourth quarter against the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Divisional Playoff game at Raymond James Stadium on January 23, 2022 in Tampa, Florida. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images) "We had some mishaps here and there, guys bump heads. We had a lot of turmoil going on in our organization," David said, via The Associated Press. "Guys getting injured, guys who were a huge part of our success." It’s unclear what David was referring to when he said "turmoil", but the organization had its off-field issues with wide receiver Antonio Brown, and the Bucs also had a handful of key injuries, including wideout Chris Godwin and offensive lineman Tristan Wirfs,...
    As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers struggle with the Los Angeles Rams and Tom Brady seems like a shell of his former self, it’s worth wondering if he’s done after today. Tom Brady is quite possibly the greatest quarterback the NFL has ever seen. There are arguments to be had over that, but he’s definitely a legend and is one of the most successful figures in NFL history. And it seems like all of that could be coming to a close as everybody tries to figure out what’s next for Brady. He’s been great all season, but he’s not great now. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are struggling against the Los Angeles Rams. And unfortunately for Tampa Bay, Brady doesn’t seem like himself. ???? NICK SCOTT INT ????@NFL | #RamsHouse pic.twitter.com/WQ4VaItOtb — FanSided (@FanSided) January 23, 2022 So, will Brady retire? Is he done after this game? Bruce Arians, the head coach of the Buccaneers, seems to believe that Brady won’t retire just yet. Arians apparently thinks Brady will be back for one more year with the Buccaneers. It seems possible that...
    ROY KEANE has delivered a typically honest verdict of Tottenham, suggesting 'no top quality players' would want to join the club. Spurs were beaten 2-0 by Chelsea on Sunday afternoon, making it three defeats in as many weeks for Antonio Conte against his former employers. 2Keane doesn't believe Tottenham have the ability to attract 'top players'Credit: Sky Sports 2Conte is yet to make a signing as Spurs boss, with time in the transfer window starting to run outCredit: Reuters The need for reinforcements is clear, with Spurs strongly linked with a double swoop for Adama Traore and Diego Carlos. But Keane remains unconvinced by Tottenham's ability to attract 'top' players to the club. While on punditry duty for Sky Sports, Keane said: "The difficulty is, what top players are going to go to Spurs? "Particularly in January, or in the summer if they don't get in the Champions League. "The manager might be an attraction, but he'll be into the last year of his contract, that's if he's still there. "So there's a big dilemma,...
    Veteran sportscaster Bob Costas hammered the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for their appeasement of China as they prepare to launch the Winter games in Beijing. The Olympics are expected to be a highly-restrictive affair between China’s limits on press freedoms, coronavirus concerns, and the limited number of spectators that will be allowed to attend. CNN’s Brian Stelter spoke to Costas on Sunday to get his thoughts on how NBC Universal will handle these storylines, along with China’s human rights abuses, when they broadcast the games next month. Costas began by torching the IOC for hosting the games in China in the first place: We should preface this by saying that no one could have anticipated Covid, no matter what the venue is. But the IOC deserves all of the disdain and disgust that comes their way for going back to China yet again. They were in Beijing in 2008. They go to Sochi in 2014. They’re shameless about this stuff. And so, this takes place not only amid Covid, as did the Tokyo Games of a year ago. But as...
    GREEN BAY, Wisc. — Advancing to the NFC Championship Game, and doing so with a walk-off win in the snow at Lambeau Field, shouldn’t really surprise anyone anymore about these 49ers. Count on them for drama. Highs. Lows. Unlikely heroes. Clutch stars. Down-to-the-absolute-wire finishes. Elimination games? Pfft. Two wins to go for that sixth Lombardi Trophy. It’s been 27 years since they won it all, before half this roster was even born. Before getting too far ahead of ourselves (again), a look back at Saturday night’s 13-10 divisional win over Green Bay: — Jordan Willis, despite his heroic block of a fourth-quarter punt, wasn’t among the 49ers brought into the media room for postgame interviews. He wasn’t muted, necessarily. In the locker room, after being awarded the ceremonial game ball by coach Kyle Shanahan, Willis was egged on by teammates to give a speech. He replied: “We’ve been through a lot this year, and we kept battling, so let’s keep going.” The crowd went wild. — Willis is 6-foot-4. He has an 80-inch wingspan, according...
    Unvaccinated Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers hinted his playing career may be coming to a close, and said he didn't think it 'would end like this' after stunning 13-10 loss to the 49ers Saturday.  Speaking after the shocking loss in Green Bay Saturday, Rogers said he felt. 'A little numb, for sure,' adding: 'I didn't think it was going to end like this.' Rodgers said he will take time to have conversations with 'people around here' and make a determination about his future before the start of free agency.  Following a loss in the divisional playoffs Saturday night at Lambeau Field, Rodgers' next move has never been more uncertain as he wrapped his 17th season with the Packers. 'I'm going to take some time and have conversations with the folks around here and then take some time away and make a decision - obviously before free agency,' Rodgers said Saturday postgame.  In an ESPN profile that was published Friday, Packers star Rodgers said he didn't think his career 'would end like this' after stunning 13-10 loss to the 49ers...
    Secretary of State Antony Blinken said it's possible Kremlin officials are just 'going through the motions' of diplomacy on Sunday after a week of intense international talks aimed at de-escalating Russian aggression on Ukraine's border.  Even after meeting with his Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, in Geneva on Friday, Blinken admitted on NBC's Meet The Press that Moscow could still invade the smaller former Soviet state despite the efforts of Western governments. The US's chief diplomat also would not rule out possible American military involvement in the worsening conflict, during a separate interview on CNN's State of the Union Sunday. 'It is certainly possible that the diplomacy the Russians are engaged in is simply going through the motions and it won't affect their ultimate decision about whether to invade or in some other way intervene, or not in Ukraine,' Blinken told NBC host Chuck Todd.  'But, we have a responsibility to see the diplomacy through for as, as far and as long as we can go because it's the more responsible way to bring this to a closure.'

    KATIE Price is facing further legal trouble in 2022 and could be hauled off to jail after she was arrested. The 43-year-old has reportedly found herself on the wrong side of the law again after a turbulent 12 months. 1Katie Price could face jail time after her latest arrestCredit: Rex Is Katie Price going to jail? The reality star could be heading to jail after being arrested while still on licence for her drink-drive shame. Katie controversially swerved spending Christmas behind bars back in December 2021 and was instead handed a 16-week suspended sentence spanning over a year. A judge slammed her for believing she is "above the law" while driving when disqualified and without insurance, but couldn't send her to prison because of a legal loophole. Katie was travelling to see a pal because she was "lonely" when she overturned her BMW in Horsham, West Sussex, in September. She was already banned from driving when she got behind the wheel after taking cocaine and downing vodka and lemonades. Her driving ban was extended and she was given 100 hours...
    Workers prepare to plug an orphan oil well on a ranch near Refugio, Texas, last May.Eric Gay/AP This story was originally published by High Country News and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. In January, the Department of the Interior stated what many have suspected: There are far more orphaned oil and gas wells in the US than previously estimated. In a memo, the agency wrote that more than 130,000 documented wells exist across the country that lack a responsible company on the hook to pay for cleanup—the remnant of more than 150 years of extracting oil and natural gas. This figure, based on data provided by the states, is two-and-a-half times the agency’s 2019 estimate, which put the figure at 56,000. This ballooning estimate comes in response to Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act that President Biden signed in November, which includes $4.7 billion to plug and reclaim abandoned and orphaned wells. This is a historically large figure, but the injection of cash pales in comparison to the full cleanup cost for the new abandoned-well figure. Plugging wells is a...
    Buffalo Bills, this spud's for you. Fans of the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs are fuming ahead of Sunday's AFC divisional playoff game against the Bills – over photos of sweet potatoes posted online. It's all because Bills fan and season ticket holder Garrett Lee recently went viral with his unique strategy for helping his favorite team win: He has brought a sweet potato to recent games, and each time Buffalo has won. Lee is hoping his luck continues Sunday against the Chiefs. But because the game will be in Kansas City, he's urging other Bills fans making the trip will keep the lucky streak alive for him.Superstition is bornThe phenomenon started Jan. 2, after Lee accidentally brought a sweet potato into a game at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, New York, when the Bills hosted the Atlanta Falcons, Syracuse.com reported.

    If you wanted to win Jorge Soler’s Game 6 home run that helped the Atlanta Braves win the World Series, you are going to have to take out a loan.

    If you were Joe Biden and you’d had a year like he’s had, you, too, would be looking for a scapegoat. That is, someone other than yourself to blame.   After all, your approval rating is averaging in the low 40s, and one poll found that a full 70 percent of Americans don’t want you to run for a second term. In the meantime, inflation is up, national confidence is down, and your own loose tongue has quite possibly invited the Russians to start a war against Ukraine. Given that record of failure, what are you going to do?   The reliable Washington, DC, answer is to find that scapegoat and send it off into the wilderness. (In DC terms, that typically means becoming a lobbyist, which is lucrative, but not glamorous.) Whether he knows it or not, that’s the solution Biden, a Beltway lifer, is moving toward.  Fortunately for the 46th president, there’s a good scapegoat right down the hall from the Oval Office: his White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain.  On January 21, Politico, which makes a specialty of reporting on behind-the-scenes...
    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Nelly Korda is just ahead of a stacked field going into final round of the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions — the LPGA’s 2022 kickoff event. Four women who have won majors are among the top five players. Korda, the world’s No. 1 and five-time winner in 2021 (including an Olympic gold medal), limited her mistakes on Saturday in challenging, chilly conditions for a 3-under 69 with four birdies and a bogey, and is 13-under 203 overall. Korda, 23, won the 2021 Gainbridge LPGA on the same course, Lake Nona Golf and Country Club. Danielle Kang, the runner-up at this tournament a year ago, and Mexico’s Gaby Lopez, the 2020 TOC champion, each went bogey-free in matching Korda’s 69, and will begin the final round one shot back. Canada’s Brooke Henderson and Japan’s Yuka Saso matched the day’s low score of 68 and will begin Sunday two and three strokes behind Korda, respectively. Kang, Henderson and Saso all have won major championships. Korda is seeking her eighth career LPGA title. The...
    Former Chicago Tribune Editor Mark Jacob sounded the alarm about a D.C. media establishment that he says refused to report that “we have a fascist insurrection going on.” Mr. Jacob was a guest on an episode of the Beyond Politics podcast — hosted by Matt Robison and Paul Hodes — and had some strong words for the media, particularly the political media in Washington, D.C. Jacob, a former Sunday editor at the Chicago Sun-Times and former metro editor at the Chicago Tribune, decried the pitfalls of fact-checking lies, telling the hosts that “Too often, the way the construction is in newspaper stories is, or on TV is, is that they actually think that they’re calling out a lie, but they’re giving the lie more credence and more time and more legitimacy than they mean it. And you know how it is. The real scary thing that we have learned in this era is that propaganda works well.” Jacob also slammed the Beltway press over its impulse to give two sides to every story: Too many people in the Washington news...

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” writer Bari Weiss stated that Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s inaccurate statements about coronavirus and the overestimation of the COVID hospitalization rate by Democrats are “what you’re going to think” if you watch cable news all day and that misinformation on coronavirus is “also on cable news.” Host Bill Maher discussed Justice Sotomayor’s overstatement of the number of children hospitalized with coronavirus, her statement that the virus is “blood-borne[,]” and Democrats overestimating the COVID hospitalization rate. Weiss responded, “If you’re watching cable news all day, that’s what you’re going to think. There is misinformation, and not just on podcasts and the Internet. It’s also on cable news.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    SEAFORD, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A grandmother outsmarted some would-be thieves on Long Island. Police say they intended to scam her out of thousands of dollars, but she wasn’t having it. READ MORE: NYPD Officer Jason Rivera Killed In Harlem Shooting, Another Fighting For His LifeThe quick thinking of a 73-year-old Seaford grandmother — who only wants her first name used, Jean — is being credited for taking down an alleged predator. “I knew he was a real scammer. I just knew he wasn’t going to scam me,” Jean told CBS2’s Kiran Dhillon. The former 911 dispatcher says Thursday morning, she received a call from someone claiming to be one of her grandsons. The caller said he had been arrested for drunk driving and was in jail. “He starts calling me ‘grandma,’ and then I’m like, I don’t have a grandson that drives, so I knew it was a scam,” Jean said. Jean says she immediately knew the call was a hoax but decided to play along for fun. After several calls back and forth, a person claiming to be her...

    By Alicia Rancilio | Associated Press NEW YORK — One of the most memorable scenes in “Belfast ” is when Jamie Dornan’s character serenades his wife (played by Caitriona Balfe) with “ Everlasting Love.” The lighting, choreography and wardrobe makes Dornan look like a matinee idol. As the film makes the rounds at award shows — its ensemble is nominated at the SAG awards and it’s tied with “West Side Story” with 11 nominations at the Critics’ Choice Awards — Dornan says he has been approached “more than once” by “awards commentator-type pundits” about whether he would perform the song at this year’s Academy Awards, if asked. “Unless faced with the actual sincere prospect of it, I don’t really know how to answer that,” said Dornan. But he does add, “I would be so terrified to have to do something like that. I remember my mate years ago sang at the Oscars and I said to him at the time, ‘I can’t think of anything worse than what you have to do,’” he said, laughing. It would be a surprising...
    An organizer of the rally that ended in the storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6 advised people against working for former President Donald Trump, and also said he will be seeking another candidate to support, should Trump run again. Dustin Stockton told Ari Melber on The Beat Friday that the former president is not only partially to blame for the Capitol riot, but that people who might be be inclined to work on a potential 2024 Trump campaign should reconsider. Melber asked, “Do you think Donald Trump bears responsibility for that storming?” Stockton responded, “I do think he bears some responsibility, from an organizer’s standpoint.” He added, We had done several D.C. rallies after the election. We knew what kind of logistics it took to move a crowd of that size from one place to another. We had led people to go from Freedom Plaza to the Supreme Court, which is about the same distance. It required a huge logistical effort. I mean medics, stopping stations, marshals, closures of streets, cooperation with a dozen different government agencies. None of that was...
    'The show must go on' is the cardinal rule of showbusiness; its first and only commandment. And yet Adele, whose record-breaking singing career is a global phenomenon, was today waking up to a huge backlash after deciding that she 'wasn't ready' for a megabucks series of concerts in Las Vegas. Fans, many of whom had paid up to £9,000 for resold tickets and had already travelled long distances for the opening night, were left angry and out of pocket when Adele opted to pull the plug at the 11th hour from the string of concerts that would have netted her £500,000 a show. Gillian Rowland-Kain, 32, was already on her flight to Las Vegas from New York with her twin sister when she found out about the cancellation via social media. The attorney from Brooklyn said: 'I was furious that Adele waited so last minute to make this call.  I recognise it's not a call any artist wants to make but she would've known yesterday that the show wouldn't be ready by tomorrow. 'Her lack of notice is astounding. I'm...
    KCBS-TV reported that Newsom also complained that those responsible for the package thefts "are arrested as ... individuals, as though they are not connected to the whole — and we need to change that.” He said 280 suspected thieves have been arrested so far, the station added. More from KCBS: From October 2020 to October 2021 rail theft has exponentially increased by 356%, according to Union Pacific. In a letter addressed to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, the company blamed what it called a “spiraling crisis” on the no cash bail policy put forth by the District Attorney’s office and said many of the arrested suspects return the next day. “It’s not just arrest and walk away,” Newsom said, according to KCBS. “You got to do the work and present the case and see folks prosecuted — not condoning this behavior. There is nothing acceptable about this behavior.” The station said the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the Los Angeles Police Department, and the California Highway Patrol have been charged with...

    Friday on ABC News’ “Good Morning America,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken sounded off on the growing tension between Russia and Ukraine. According to Blinken, “it’s ultimately going to be President [Vladimir] Putin who decides” if the two nations go to war. He added that any Russian aggression “will have serious consequences.” “Bottom line, are we further or closer away from war?” host George Stephanopoulos asked. “You really have to ask President Putin,” Blinken replied. “It’s ultimately going to be President Putin who decides what Russia will do. But here’s where we are: Based on what we’ve heard in the last couple of weeks, we will put in writing both some deep concerns that we and other allies and partners have about Russia’s actions, not just with regard to Ukraine but more broadly when it comes to things that it does to threaten security. We’ll address some of the concerns that Russia has raised with us, and we’ll put some ideas on the table for how we might actually strengthen each other’s sense of security going forward. And then based on...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki objected to the suggestion that she “had to” go on Fox News in order to clarify President Joe Biden’s remarks at a press conference. Psaki made her first appearance on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom with Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino Thursday morning, a fact that came up repeatedly during the briefing later that day. First, Psaki cheerily noted the appearance while Fox correspondent Jacqui Heinrich was framing a question, to which Heinrich said “thank you for joining us.” And in another exchange, Washington Times correspondent Jeff Mordock brought up the appearance while was pressing Psaki about the uproar surrounding Biden’s remarks about Russia and Ukraine during Wednesday’s marathon press conference. MR. MORDCOK: President Biden has repeatedly said the words of a president matter, so why isn’t he more careful with his remarks? MS. PSAKI: Well, I think the President gave nearly two hours of a press conference last night. What we conveyed this morning — last night and this morning was exactly what he has conveyed to President Putin. And I think what’s important...
    Mark Levin praised Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win, a forthcoming book from Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute (GAI), as Schweizer’s “best book.” “This is by far his best book,” Levin remarked at the beginning of Thursday’s edition of the Mark Levin Show. ‘This book involves extensive research” undertaken by Schweizer and GAI, he added. Levin said readers of Red-Handed will be “shocked” at revelations of corruption. He stated: I’m here to tell you — having read the vast majority this book — I learned things I never knew, and I’m on top of these facts that the media in America will never investigate [and] will never cover because they’re part of it. You’ll be shocked to learn — shocked — even though, at this point, you’re probably thinking to yourselves, “Nothing will shock me, anymore.” You’ll be shocked to learn the extent to which Big Tech — Silicon Valley — is in the back pocket of Xi [Jinping], not just China, but Xi, and how they slobber all over the him and that...

    USA Swimming announced it will allow 'non-elite' athletes to compete in a way that is 'consistent with their gender identity' following Ivy League swimmer Lia Thomas' record-smashing run. The organization, which oversees more than 360,000 members, released a statement Thursday after the NCAA Board of Governors said they will update their guidelines to follow the wishes of each sport's governing body. 'USA Swimming firmly believes in inclusivity and the opportunity for all athletes to experience the sport of swimming in a manner consistent with their gender identity and expression,' the statement read. 'We also strongly believe in competitive equity, and, like many, are doing our best to learn and educate ourselves on the appropriate balance in this space.' The announcement did not make clear whether transgender swimmers like Thomas are considered elite. The University of Pennsylvania swimmer, who has qualified to compete at the NCAA championships in March, has sparked debate over whether transgender women should  be allowed to compete against biological women. 'The non-elite athlete inclusion procedures remain unchanged. Following broad transgender policy changes in November 2021, the IOC...
    SAN JOSE (KPIX 5) – As San Jose revisits the issue of digital billboards, astronomers at Lick Observatory concerned about light pollution are now weighing in. The city is considering such billboards in a number of locations, and a couple of them will be right along the edge of Mineta San Jose International Airport property. They would be right in front of the drivers on Highway 101. READ MORE: Injury Collision Closes All Northbound Lanes of Hwy 101 in San FranciscoBut there’s another party involved that says those lights will be shining right in their eyes, and that would be the astronomers up on top of Mount Hamilton. “The site was purposely selected by the founder, James Lick, to conduct astronomical observations above the pollution from cities, including light pollution,” says Dr. Paul Lynam, a Lick Observatory resident astronomer. For astronomers like Lynam, light pollution is more than a nuisance. It’s becoming an increasing threat for the observatory that has changed mankind’s understanding of the universe. Even the most sophisticated telescope here is slowly losing its vision. “So for certain...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — The drop in COVID cases in Illinois does/doesn’t mirror what’s happening in neighboring Indiana CBS 2’s Asal Rezaei reports nearby counties like Lake county here are seeing similar trend, but its the rest of the state that has yet to see cases peak. READ MORE: DePaul’s Aneesah Morrow Named Big East Freshman For The Eighth Time; An Award That’s A Gift That Keeps On Giving“Over the last two weeks, we’ve actually had about a 50% drop in cases.

    On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated that President Joe Biden is “not going to wade into the actions of prosecutors” in response to a question on whether the president will push against the softer prosecution policies of some prosecutors. Psaki said the White House has “encouraged local leaders, local officials to take on the crime in their communities. That’s absolutely essential. What the president has proposed and what we’ll get — there will be a lot of discussion of this I expect over the next couple of months, is a significant plus-up of funding for local community policing programs, significantly increased from the last president. Because the president’s a believer in that.” Co-host Dana Perino then asked, “Will he push on the progressive prosecutors that are, for example, here in New York City, saying that things like using — taking a gun into a store, robbing it, but then leaving and nobody gets killed that that’s a misdemeanor, is the president okay with that?” Psaki responded, “Well, look, the...
