    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Throughout the pandemic, medical staffers have faced extraordinary challenges, but one local doctor has found a way to connect with his patients in a heartfelt and deeply personal way.He and his staff have been using the power of poetry to help their patients heal.Oncologist Dr. Jacek Pinski directs USC's Institute of Arts in Medicine, a unique endeavor to help patients heal not only physically, but also emotionally."It creates an intimate bond between my patients, myself, as well as the caregivers," Pinski told Eyewitness News.The verses persuade patients to look inside themselves to find strength."I want cancer patients who watch this to know that they are so much greater than this diagnosis," said USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center program manager Viva Nelson. "They are individuals with identities that deserve to be celebrated."Not only is she helping expand the program, Nelson also dabbles in writing verses herself."We want to reach as many patients as possible. We want this movement to spread," she said.She recently wrote one about one of her patients, which she said helped capture his positivity...

    New York City's new mayor on Monday vowed to end the scourge of gun violence plaguing his city - reviving a disbanded police unit, injecting cash into community projects, and vowing to dismantle weapons trafficking networks. On Friday a 22-year-old police officer, Jason Rivera, was shot and killed while responding to a domestic violence call in Harlem - the first officer killed by gunfire in the city since July 2017. Eric Adams, a former captain in the NYPD, who took over as mayor on January 1, said that Rivera's murder should act as a catalyst.  'We are going to do a lot more than pray. We are going to turn our pain into purpose,' he said in a City Hall press conference.  'We will not surrender our city to the violent few.' There have been 73 shootings so far this year in the city - an increase of 23.7 percent on last year. A total of 82 people have been shot, up from 67 in the first three weeks of 2021.  Eric Adams, the mayor of New York, on Monday...
    ABOVE the war memorial to those who lost their lives in the 1950-1953 Korean War is a motto: “Freedom is not free.” There is an extraordinary list of countries that travelled from around the world to stop communist North Korea from taking over the whole country. 4Tensions mount on the border and Ukrainian troops prepare for a possible Russian invasionCredit: Getty From as far away as Colombia, people came to fight and paid the price for freedom. The war was grim and more than 1,000 British soldiers alone lost their lives.Some would ask: Was it worth it? The South Koreans know the answer. Look to North Korea and the experience of millions who live in fear and starvation and the emphatic answer is “Yes”. Because freedom is so very precious. It is why in the UK so many of us get angry at the Left for trying to rewrite history with their cancel culture, and trying to make us feel guilty for things our forefathers achieved. They are the same people who sneer at patriotism and the Union Jack. Maybe...
    Alex Wong/Getty Images TRUTH Social, the new platform being developed by former President Donald Trump, will reportedly use artificial intelligence censors to purge content which is deemed NSFW. The platform has been advertised as an alternative to Twitter which “encourages an open, free, and honest global conversation without discriminating against political ideology.” One of Trump’s complaints about platforms such as Twitter and Facebook has been the alleged censorship of conservative voices. He was banned by both companies last January. According to a new report from Fox Business, Trump’s platform will also rely on Big Tech software to heavily moderate content, but only to ensure it remains “family-friendly.” CEO Devin Nunes, who retired from the House just a few weeks ago, told the network that TRUTH Social will nix speech which is not appropriate for all audiences. The company will do so by using artificial intelligence from a Silicon Valley tech firm. Trump Media & Technology Group plans to launch TRUTH by President’s Day with the best content moderation available. Brooke Singman, writing for Fox Business, reported: But those involved in...

    New York City Mayor Eric Adams unveiled a series of crime-fighting initiatives Monday in an effort to combat escalating gunplay and the flow of illegal guns following recent violence against police officers that killed one and left another fighting for his life last week.  In a news conference, Adams, who began his fourth week on the job, said his "Blueprint to End Gun Violence" will be launched immediately and will include more officers on the streets.  "The gun violence crisis has hit New York City painfully," he said during a speech at City Hall.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Parents looking to buy baby formula are finding empty shelves, and frustration, while scrambling to find alternatives in some parts of the country. “We’ve noticed it being difficult to find maybe a couple months ago — two, three months ago — and then just recently we can’t find it,” San Francisco resident Irene Anhoeck told CBS News. READ MORE: Miami Hit And Run Crash Injures Two WomenShe and her husband, Mario Anhoeck are the parents of Marlo, a 10-month-old boy.

We checked Costco, Costco online, Walgreens, Long’s. Can’t find it anywhere,” Irene Anhoeck said. Mario Anhoeck even drove an hour away, with no luck.

    Cramer's Investing Club: We're adding to our position in this drugmaker on weakness
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has clearly grown tired of Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy, even growing apparently angry after delivering an exceptionally long and detailed response to his claim President Joe Biden isn’t doing enough to “keep Americans safe.” After he asked, “would you agree that the most important job for any president is to keep Americans safe?” Doocy got slammed with facts. Crime has existed in America since before America was America, but Doocy suggested in his first year President Biden should have somehow eliminated crime. “If the President’s never satisfied if people don’t feel safe,” Doocy began, “does he know that after a year in office, people do not feel safe in this country?" "Well, Peter, I think if we look at the facts here, we’ve seen a surge of crime over the last two years. Would you agree with that?” Psaki replied. “So what are you attributing the rise in crime to that?” Doocy said to a very prepared Psaki, who, in a rare move, accused him of not being “responsible” in his reporting....
    Jessica Cisneros, running to replace anti-choice, allegedly corrupt Henry Cuellar in Texas with some help from a prominent friend. Republican shamelessness is one thing, but coming from a putative Democrat, it’s even more infuriating. Hot off the heels of having his Texas home and campaign office raided by the FBI, Rep. Henry Cuellar is defiantly continuing his campaign—and in the most offensive ways possible. Cuellar is nothing if not brazen. Never mind that big FBI cloud hanging over him; he’s out with a brand new TV ad this week in which he says he will “never stop fighting for South Texas.” Of course, he will indeed have to “stop fighting” … if it’s proven he’s broken any laws during this probe in which a grand jury has issued subpoenas for him, his wife, and at least one campaign staffer. Even more shameless considering he’s supposed to be a Democrat was his first public appearance after the news of the FBI raid hit: He was accepting an award from a forced-birth group, “Democrats for Life.” It’s a good thing Texas has a solid choice in the...
    When Prince George’s County, Maryland, Public Schools leaders suddenly announced that the week leading up to winter break, and the two weeks after, would feature virtual learning, they acknowledge it wasn’t a popular decision. But schools CEO Monica Goldson said the only thing school leaders could do with so many outbreaks spreading around the county was wait it out. More Education News More Prince George’s County News “We stopped the spread of COVID,” Goldson said at an event in Capitol Heights a week after kids returned to the classroom. Last week, kids were also sent home with antigen rapid tests, with instructions to parents to administer those tests Sunday, ahead of the return to class on Monday morning. Goldson said that was a success, too, with no tech issues reported. “Today was the first day where students and parents were back in schools after utilizing” their tests, noted Goldson. “We had over 85,000 tests uploaded into our database and just a few students who tested positive.

    Getty Images Marcus Smart of the Celtics looks on from the bench WASHINGTON — Led by All-Star Jayson Tatum’s whopping 51 points and a relentless approach, the Boston Celtics routed the Washington Wizards 116-87, Sunday afternoon at Capital One Arena. Celtics veteran Marcus Smart couldn’t board their plane back to Boston without addressing the naysayers who doubt Smart’s potential to excel as the team’s starting point guard. They’re the same critics who are most likely still unimpressed with the notion that Boston (24-24) still has a chance to turn its season around, despite their dominating performance.

    Valerie Bertinelli is certain that someday, she’ll be reunited with her longtime love. Her ex-husband, Eddie Van Halen, passed away in 2020 at age 65 from cancer. The actress is now sharing her story in a new memoir titled "Enough Already: Learning to Love the Way I am Today," which was released on Jan. 18. The Food Network star recently told Yahoo Entertainment’s "Under the Covers" celebrity book series that she was by the guitarist’s side every day at the hospital with their son Wolfgang. "Some of the last words I said to him [are], you know, 'Maybe next time. Maybe we'll get it right next time,'" said Bertinelli. "And I really do believe that this is not the first time nor will it be the last time that I spend a lifetime with him."

    Investing Club: We're starting a new position in this energy name, buying more Morgan Stanley
    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...
    Last week, Canadian authorities announced the discovery of the bodies of four family members — two adults, a teenager and a baby, all citizens of India — who authorities believe died of exposure trying to cross from Canada to the U.S. The discovery of people who died crossing the border is far more common along the U.S.’s other border — the one with Mexico. For one thing, far more people attempt to cross that border. Along the U.S.-Mexico border, U.S. Border Patrol encountered more than 1.6 million migrants in 2021 according to data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The International Organization for Migration, a humanitarian organization, estimates at least 65o people died trying to cross the southern border in 2021. Though it’s a less-common route for migrants, data show hundreds of people are caught attempting to cross the northern border into the U.S. every year, dozens of them into Minnesota.

    Recently reissued in paperback, Louis Moore’s We Will Win The Day is a comprehensive and informative book on the history of athlete activists Anyone fighting for justice stands on the shoulders of those who have come before – ancestors who have opened doors and created wedges so that descendants may continue their journey. Knowing their stories is therefore important as their lives and activities may provide lessons and inspiration that can help today’s freedom fighters. In the world of sports, many of these forerunners, such as Jackie Robinson and Muhammad Ali, are well known, while many others have been unfortunately forgotten. A fuller history, one that shines light on those lesser-known pioneers, has emerged in Louis Moore’s book, We Will Win The Day, which “explores the relationship between black athletes and the black community in the fight for fairness in sports during the civil rights movement,” between 1945 and 1968. It is a very informative addition to the literature on the intersections of athletics and activism and will delight anyone eager to learn more about those who helped lay the...
    Getty Nikola Vucevic Last night, the Chicago Bulls and their starting center Nikola Vucevic went up against the Orlando Magic, the team from whom they acquired him last season. After eight and a half seasons with the Magic, this was Vucevic’s first return to Orlando since the trade, perhaps adding extra individual motivation, which ideally would mean extra individual performance. In addition to that, Vucevic’s importance to his team is only enhanced by their current shortcomings. Absent each of Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso, Zach LaVine, Derrick Jones Jr and Patrick Williams, the Bulls are missing three starters and five of their top nine scorers – the onus therefore falls onto veteran All-Stars Vucevic and DeMar DeRozan to pick up the slack. Relying on Tyler Cook and Malcolm Hill types will not cut it. DeRozan did this with an excellent performance, scoring 41 points on 21 shots to continue his excellent renaissance season, but Vucevic certainly did not. Instead, his performance was a damp squib. In a disappointing 115-94 loss to a Magic team that ranks bottom of the...
    (CNN)One of the officers had been on the job four days. One was on his third shift ever. And Derek Chauvin, who pressed his knee into George Floyd's neck for nearly nine minutes, was the field training officer for one of them. Chauvin, J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao were responding to a call about a $20 counterfeit bill on May 25 when they detained Floyd, who died while in custody. In addition to state charges, Thao, Kueng and Lane have been charged in federal court with violating Floyd's civil rights.

    David Nabarro, the WHO's special envoy for Covid, has warned against comparing Covid to flu The World Health Organization today warned against comparing Covid to flu – just days after the UK Government said it intended to treat the two viruses the same. David Nabarro, the WHO's special envoy for Covid, said the comparisons were irresponsible because they suggest coronavirus 'has suddenly got incredibly weak'. He told Sky News: 'It can also mutate and form variants and we've seen several but we know there are more not far away.  'So quite honestly, we are not saying that this should be considered to be like flu or indeed like anything else — it's a new virus, and we must go on treating it as though it is full of surprises, very nasty and rather cunning.'  The official called on leaders to 'stay focused on the job' as he claimed we were only at the 'halfway mark' of the pandemic.  Parallels between coronavirus and influenza are being drawn in the UK now that Omicron is causing around the same number of deaths as a...
    Witthaya Prasongsin | Moment | Getty Images Interest rates may be going up in 2022 — and a bond ladder is one way for investors to manage the risk. Prices for existing bonds generally fall as interest rates (or yields) rise, since the yields on new bonds look more attractive by comparison. That dynamic played out in 2021: U.S. bonds posted their first negative return in years, fueled by a pop in interest rates. Returns may come under additional pressure if the Federal Reserve hikes its benchmark interest rate this year, as expected, to combat high inflation. "We are in a very precarious position with bonds right now," said Michael McClary, chief investment officer at Valmark Financial Group in Akron, Ohio.How bond ladders workHere's how a bond ladder can prevent losses if rates rise. The basic strategy entails holding individual bonds like U.S. Treasurys to the end of their term. Holding an individual bond to maturity guarantees the investor will get back their principal plus the stated interest rate. It locks in their price. For example, an investor who puts...

    WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus speaks during a press conference on December 20, 2021 at the WHO headquarters in GenevaFabrice Coffrini | AFP | Getty Images The Covid-19 pandemic is at a "critical juncture" as it enters its third year, the WHO's top official said on Monday. Speaking at a press conference during a meeting with Svenja Schulze, Germany's minister for economic cooperation and development, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus praised Germany — the biggest donor to the WHO — for approaching global public health with "solidarity and multilateralism." "These qualities are more important than ever, because the Covid-19 pandemic is now entering its third year and we are at a critical juncture," Tedros told reporters. "We have the tools to end the acute phase of this pandemic. But we must use them equitably and wisely." Noting Germany's commitment to international cooperation and tackling the pandemic under its newly adopted G-7 presidency, Tedros praised the country's efforts as "an example for all" but warned that "we still have a long road ahead."

    Another day, another controversy over supposed “left-wing indoctrination” in public schools and its right-wing backlash. Virginia’s new Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin last week issued an executive order banning “divisive concepts,” including “critical race theory,” from the state’s public schools. Mississippi, too, joined the growing roster of states passing de facto anti-CRT legislation, following a walkout by Black members of the state Senate. And there were reports on initiatives in at least a dozen states to require schools to post all teaching materials online, sometimes with an option for parents to withdraw children from certain classes. These GOP-led efforts, which include moves to banish undesirable books on race and gender from school libraries and reading lists, are widely-decried as an assault on intellectual freedom and a thinly veiled racist backlash. Critics on the left say the anti-CRT panic is absurd—critical race theory, which analyzes the way racism is embedded in social structures, is taught mostly in higher education, especially in law schools—and also a cynical strategy to target all discussion of racism in K-12 education. Prominent progressives have urged the...

    (CNN)French astronaut Thomas Pesquet spent six months aboard the International Space Station last year, and his view of the Earth was as alarming as it was breathtaking.Long periods with his feet off solid ground gave him a unique and privileged perspective on our planet. His Instagram account is bursting with beautiful images of "the blue ball we call home." But the beauty is tainted. Pesquet says that even from space the effects of climate change are visible.He says that since his previous visit to space, in 2016, the consequences of human activity have become even more apparent, with glaciers visibly retreating, and a rise in extreme weather events.Environmental concern motivated him to become a UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) Goodwill Ambassador. As an astronaut on board the ISS he supported the FAO's research into agricultural innovation and methods of food production. Limited resources in space provide an opportunity to model human behavior on a planet with dwindling resources, and Pesquet wants to highlight the parallels between life on a spacecraft and life on Earth.CNN spoke to Pesquet at the...
    Fauci said he had "hope" that the "third shot boost will give a much greater durability of protection." "We may need to boost again," Dr. Fauci stated. "That's entirely conceivable, but before we make that decision about yet again another boost, we want to determine clearly what the durability of protection is of that regular boost, that third shot that we're talking about." On Saturday, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said that he hoped COVID-19 booster shots could be taken annually instead of every four or five months. Bourla's admitted that an annual booster is easier to convince people to get than bi-annual shots. "Once a year — it is easier to convince people to do it. It is easier for people to remember," Bourla told Israel's N12 News. "So from a public health perspective, it is an ideal situation. We are looking to see if we can create a vaccine that covers Omicron and doesn't forget the other variants and that could be a solution."

    (CNN)Those of us who live in Ukraine have anxiously read the headlines over the last few months, proclaiming the threat of war looming over our country. With as many as 100,000 Russian troops amassed at the Ukrainian border, this is hardly a surprise. But Ukraine has already been at war for nearly eight years. In 2014, Russia annexed Crimea and Russia-backed separatists took control of the eastern Ukrainian cities of Donetsk and Luhansk in an ongoing conflict that has claimed some 13,000 lives, according to estimates by the United Nations in 2019. What we're facing now has already been at a simmer, and it's now dawning on all Ukrainians just how quickly this could boil over into war throughout the country.

    Statistician Nate Silver said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that President Joe Biden had not fulfilled his promise to “return to normal.” Partial transcript as follows: SILVER: If you have to sum up Joe Biden’s problem in a nutshell, it’s this, he promised a return to normal and we haven’t really gotten one yet. The biggest part of that is COVID, especially in the wake of the omicron variant. In the most recent Ipsos poll, 52 percent of Americans said either they never expected to return to pre-COVID normal or that it will take more than a year. That’s actually the most pessimistic that Americans have been at any point in the pandemic. It also may be why in a new poll this week, 36 percent of voters say Biden has done a worse job of being president than they expected, as to just 5 percent who say he’s done better. Meanwhile, Biden’s overall approval rating, which initially declined late this summer as the delta variant surged, has now fallen to 42 percent. In the FiveThirtyEight average, the lowest of...
    National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that it was “entirely conceivable” people may need boosters again to fight COVID-19. Partial transcript as follows: RADDATZ: Let’s talk about the vaccines and the boosters. You have talked about how effective especially the boosters are, risk of severe illness reduced by as much as 94 percent with Delta, 84 percent with Omicron. What about the next booster shot? For a substantial part of the population, they’re now moving into the fifth month of their booster. So does it lose its effectiveness and how soon should they get another one if that’s your advice? FAUCI: Well, the answer, Martha, honestly, is we don’t know because we don’t know the durability of protection from the third shot boost of an mRNA and the second shot boost of a J&J. Certainly, you are going to see the antibody levels go down. That’s natural, but there’s an element of the immune response, B cell memory and T cell responses, where even though you do see a...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci outlined a path toward a long-term plan to live with COVID-19, claiming it's the "best-case scenario."  The president’s chief medical advisor predicted this week the current surge of cases caused by the omicron variant will peak by mid-February, leaving officials wondering what happens next.  Fauci said on ABC’s "This Week" that the best-case scenario will be to bring the virus under control and learn to live with it.  Dr. Anthony Fauci, White House chief medical advisor and director of the NIAID, and Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, arrive to participate in the White House COVID-19 Response Team's regular call with the National Governors Association in the South Court Auditorium in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the White House campus Dec. 27, 2021, in Washington. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)  "Control means you're not eliminating it, you're not eradicating it," Fauci explained. "But it gets down to such a low level that it's essentially integrated into the general respiratory infections that we have learned to live with." BEIJING ORDERS MASS...

    (CNN)When Joshua Gillespie was holed up in the hospital as a kid, where he stayed frequently in between surgeries for his rare heart condition, his best friend was a 3-and-a-half-year-old monster with red fur and a vibrant imagination. Elmo, that lovable, occasionally grating Muppet and "Sesame Street" stalwart since 1984, kept Gillespie company for much of his early childhood from a TV inside his hospital room. He'd watch the same tapes -- the "Best of Elmo" compilation, usually -- so often that his nurses had chosen their own favorite parts. Gillespie has loved the Muppets ever since he watched in awe as Elmo tap danced down a staircase like a regular Fred Astaire. So seeing the preschool-aged monster get his due among other adults who grew up with him -- this time for his feud with a rock -- has been extremely gratifying, he said."There's so much attention being brought to these things, which is fantastic for me just to see ... there's a whole new generation of people to grow up with it," he said. The cast of...
    Jen Cousins, center, with her husband, Matt and their children Noel, 13, Saffron, 12, Milo, 8 and Poppy, 6.Jen Cousins Without a January child tax credit payment, Jen Cousins will have to wait a few extra months to replace the brakes on her minivan, the only car her family of six owns. Cousins, 44, a stay-at-home mom in Orlando, Florida, has been receiving the full credit for each of her four children ages six, eight, twelve and thirteen for the past six months. She's put most of the extra money toward medical expenses – the entire family wears glasses, one child needs special prescription eye drops and speech therapy and soon, her oldest kids will need braces. Her husband, Matt, 43, works as a software architect and has insurance through work, but it only covers him, so the family pays almost $1,000 each month to insure Jen and the kids, she said. Plus, additional out-of-pocket expenses always come up. More from Invest in You:Companies raise perks to repay employees' student loansHere's a financial road map for the rest of the yearBiden...

    WHETHER you were an A-grade student in sex-ed class or you got a lecture from your parents about the birds and the bees, chances are what we learned way back when is still with us today. But it seems we've been lied to in one way or another and LELO’s sex and relationship expert, Kate Moyle, has debunked some of the most common myths about sex. 2Kate Moyle, sex and relationship expert at LELO, has debunked some of the most common myths about sexCredit: Kate Moyle The 'pull out method' is a reliable form of contraception There are many types of contraception including condoms, the pill and the IUD, just to name a few. But many people rely on the "pull out method" to help prevent pregnancy, although Kate says it's simply not reliable. This refers to when two people have unprotected sex and the man pulls out right before ejaculation. But according to  Planned Parenthood 22/100 people every year will get pregnant from using the pull-out method, says Kate. "This is due to the fact that...
    Jeanine Pirro recounted her patriotic journey as the host of "Justice with Judge Jeanine" in her final opening statement Saturday.  JUDGE JEANINE ANNOUNCES HER MOVE TO 'THE FIVE' JEANINE PIRRO: Eleven years ago, "Justice with Judge Jeanine" began, hosted by a former prosecutor, judge and D.A. sitting not in a courtroom with armed deputies, but instead in a studio armed with teleprompters, monitors and a dedicated staff and crew. The mission was a familiar one: finding truth and justice — the jury bigger, though. In fact, a national one, thus bringing you truth, justice and the American way. Each and every week, we watched events unfold in America together through the lens of this studio. When we started this journey, we were all a bit younger, but not as wise as we are now. We were certainly more optimistic.  … I thank you for fighting for me, and you know who you are. So as we reach the end of this journey, don't think you're getting rid of me just yet. I'll be going to the number one show on...
    HBO talk show host Bill Maher took aim at Anthony Fauci and other medical experts over their ever-changing COVID guidance during the pandemic. 'Don't sit there in your white coat and tell me "just do what we say,"' Maher told Deadline in an interview on Friday of the medical community's response to the coronavirus, which has claimed more than 860,000 lives since 2020. 'That's not a criticism of them like they're being corrupt, although there certainly is plenty of corruption in the medical establishment,' said the politically-minded comedian, who kicked off the 20th season of his hit HBO series Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday.  Maher did not express much confidence when asked if he felt that the medical establishment, or Dr. Fauci - the Chief Medical Advisor to the President of United States and nation's leading infectious disease doctor - 'really know what they are doing.'  'But I've always maintained that the big overarching theme should be that people look back and say, "Oh, look how far we've come medically."'  Bill Maher (left) took at Dr. Anthony Fauci...
    President Trump’s book publisher Winning Team Publishing cannot keep up with the demand for his latest book, Our Journey Together, Sergio Gor, president of the publishing company, told Breitbart News Saturday, adding that they are currently facing a paper shortage in Biden’s America, affecting the speed of distribution. Gor briefly explained what inspired both himself and Donald Trump Jr. to start the company. All across our culture, he said, Americans have witnessed the left “trying to cancel conservatives,” as seen on social media, TV, and the publishing industry. He noted that he has worked with “numerous” members of Congress who have been canceled and censored or been told, “Listen, you just can’t write this,” by left-wing publishers. “Conservative books outsell liberal books almost always,” Gor said, yet they are too often stuck trying to publish books with left-wing publishers who seek to undermine them. That inspired and Trump Jr. and Gor to start the company, which kicked off its venture by publishing Trump’s photo book, Our Journey Together.

Visit us every week to see how you can get involved! If you listen to people who back oil and gas energy, you would feel as though any attempt to look into, investigate, or even evaluate alternative energy would be the equivalent of stabbing your grandmother in the neck. In a series of bills in my own home state of Kansas, a state legislator proposed that before signing any agreement on the placement of solar or wind energy generators on a piece of private property, notifications would have to be sent out in specific font sizes, time periods would have to be met, and if 10% of your neighbors did not approve, they could call a local election. To back this up he brought up interesting claims, including the fact that the Texas freeze and electrical...
    At the beginning of the new documentary series We Need to Talk About Cosby, director W. Kamau Bell asks what should be a simple question: “Who is Bill Cosby now?” Few of his interview subjects are able to answer it. They all sigh. Heavily sigh. One subject makes a point to label hers: “deep Black-girl sigh.” One person just says, “Fuck,” a one-word answer to the unanswerable. But there are a few who manage to form a response. “He is known as America’s dad.” “Or a quote unquote monster.” “The juxtaposition is just bananas.” “He was someone to believe in and someone to trust.” “He wasn’t the nice person everyone thought he was.” “An example of the complexity of humanity.” Then things get a bit more blunt. “He was a rapist who had a really big TV show once.” High-profile attorney Gloria Allred is quick and direct: “I look forward to seeing Bill Cosby again,” she says. “In a court of law.” We Need to Talk About Cosby is a four-part docuseries directed by Bell, an Emmy-winning TV host and...
    Russia has amassed its military on Ukraine’s eastern border, and many are concerned Vladimir Putin will order an invasion of the country just as he did in 2014. A growing number of politicians and pundits across the political spectrum have called on President Joe Biden to take a variety of measures to prevent an invasion, as well as prepare a response in the event that it happens. Anyone who has watched Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity on Fox News recently has likely noticed that their views on this situation are quite different. Carlson has expressed alarm at the bipartisan push to become further involved in a conflict that he thinks has little strategic implications for the U.S. Hannity, meanwhile, has excoriated Biden for not doing enough to deter Putin. The hosts’ respective monologues on Thursday night were instructive of this, and it’s high time these two debate the issue with one another in Ali-vs.-Frazier, Rumble In the Jungle-esque fashion. It’s the debate we need. “In the coming days, Russia may violate Ukraine’s eastern border,” Carlson said on Thursday night. “This,...
    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...
    Sen. Kyrsten Sinema has been censured by her fellow Arizona Democrats after she voted against modifying the filibuster, which ultimately played a decisive role in the defeat of the party’s voting legislation this week. The Arizona Democratic Party (ADP) formally censured Sen. Sinema on Saturday after a closed-door meeting. In a statement on behalf of the party, chair Raquel Terán said that while they “take no pleasure” in announcing it, the rebuke is a result of Sinema’s “failure to do whatever it takes to ensure the health of our democracy.” The party has a public meeting later today, during which time they make take a no-confidence vote in Sinema. If that occurs, the party will likely put its support behind a primary challenger against Sen. Sinema in her 2024 reelection. The full statement from the party on this censure vote: “I want to be clear, the Arizona Democratic Party is a diverse coalition with plenty of room for policy disagreements, however on the matter of the filibuster and the urgency to protect voting rights, we have been crystal clear....
