    Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, accused the "liberal media" of ignoring his investigation of the Biden family's finances in order to protect the Democratic Party while speaking on the Senate floor on Thursday. "For over a year, Sen. [Ron] Johnson and I investigated the Biden family financial dealings," Grassley said. "We found that they engaged in potential criminal financial deals across the globe, including China, which created counterintelligence concerns. ... I think It’s outrageous that the Fourth Estate would choose to ignore facts when they are uncovered by Republicans." RON JOHNSON PUSHES BACK ON CALLS FOR HUNTER BIDEN SPECIAL COUNSEL "We showed our work and made our findings public, but the liberal media and Democrats chose to dismiss it," he continued. "They even falsely claimed our work was Russian disinformation. I believe they did this in order to protect leaders of the other party. Those same liberal outlets that disparaged our investigation now report that...
    MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Wednesday night ripped apart the long shot Texas lawsuit to throw out votes from four states that President-elect Joe Biden won, calling the Republican attempt to invalidate millions of ballots “patently insane” and “as dumb as you think it is.” After the Supreme Court denied a GOP bid to overturn Biden’s election victory in Pennsylvania with a one-line ruling, President Donald Trump and other Republicans jumped aboard Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s suit seeking that the electoral votes of Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin to be set aside. Besides Trump, attorneys general from at least 17 states that Trump won have joined the suit, filing an amicus brief. The case is seen as yet another dead end in a series of increasingly embarrassing legal defeats for Trump and his allies, something the MSNBC host pointed out at the top of her show on Wednesday. “President...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Across South Florida, numerous food distributions to those impacted by the pandemic are held on a weekly basis. “There are between six and eight hundred cars here getting in line very early in the morning,” said Kevin Picard, with the City of Sunrise, at a recent distribution. As the pandemic economic nightmare squeezes tighter and tighter, the boxes and bags of food handed out become even more critical. “People are really suffering,” said Carol Barollarth as she waited in line at a food distribution event in Homestead. It’s a bleak picture that grows darker by the day. “We have over 300 thousand people in Broward County who are food insecure right now,” said Broward Commissioner Dr. Barbara Sharief. Food distribution has been running at full tilt, but the question is how long can they keep going at such a pace. Most federal...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – After nine long months battling COVID, a Jackson Memorial Hospital employee was finally able to walk out of the hospital and be home with her family just in time for the holidays. “I don’t know what to tell you guys. The only thing I can tell you is that this is real, coronavirus is real. the effects are real,” 41-year-old Rose Felipe said. “But what’s more real is the love that I received here.” The mother of two is a technician who has worked at JMH for over 15 years. Felipe contracted the virus back in March and had to spend two months in the intensive care unit. Her diabetes and underlying health issues led to further complications.

    Almost 25 years after having his ear bitten, Evander Holyfield says he’s close to negotiating a rematch with Mike Tyson.  The 58-year-old former heavyweight champion told TMZ Sports on Sunday that his team has been in contact with Tyson about setting up a date for an exhibition match.  MIKE TYSON TELLS JIM GRAY THAT HE ‘WANTED TO KILL’ EVANDER HOLYFIELD WHEN HE BIT OFF HIS EAR Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson fight for WBA World Heavyweight Title on June 28,1997 at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, Nevada.  (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images) "I'm a very confident person," Holyfield said.

    Max Verstappen was chasing Valtteri Bottas for the P2 position on driver standing last weekend. With Lewis Hamilton out of the race, Verstappen was expected to close in the gap between him and Bottas at the Sakhir Grand Prix. However, Max Verstappen was trying to evade an accident involving Leclerc and Perez but ended up on the gravels and into the barriers. He was not happy as he kicked the barriers in frustration and called Leclerc’s plunge at turn 4 stupid because caused the accident during the starting lap.

    It has been more than a week, but Vee Serna is still shaken. In the darkness of the night before Thanksgiving, the young mother watched as California Highway Patrol officers descended on the neighborhood of El Sereno, callously yanking families from the vacant, state-owned houses they had commandeered mere hours before. Dozens of people were arrested on suspicion of trespassing, burglary and unlawful assembly. Terrified of what would happen if the officers found her and and her 8-year-old in one of the houses, Serna decided it was best to leave. But now mother and daughter are back in their cramped, one-bedroom apartment in Highland Park, once again facing the possibility of eviction. “I’ve been living off my credit cards, food banks and just the mutual aid of my friends and community,” Serna said. “I’m just committed to doing whatever I can to not end up on the streets.”...
    New York (CNN Business)How much is a moon rock worth? According to new contracts inked between NASA and four startups, it's somewhere between $1 and $15,000. NASA pledged in September to buy moon rocks from companies that can get robotic rovers to the lunar surface and scoop up samples of the dusty terrain, and the space agency asked for bids from companies all over the world. The winners were unveiled Thursday: California-based Masten, Lunar Outpost of Colorado, and two separate companies that are both called iSpace — one from Japan and the other from Luxembourg. The program, which NASA hopes will be completed by 2024, the same year the agency hopes to return astronauts to the moon, is among the most unique in US history. The goal is not to glean new information about lunar soil composition or study how various lunar resources can be used. The goal, rather, is...

    An official at the Brookings Institution offered to provide James Comey with a copy of the dossier.  Benjamin Wittes, the official, has emerged as one of Comey and the FBI’s most ardent defenders. He has never previously disclosed that he offered to assist the FBI in its investigation of the Trump campaign.  Two Senate committees released Wittes’ email to Comey along with a large batch of FBI documents related to the Trump probe.  An official at the Brookings Institution, a liberal foreign policy think tank, offered to provide James Comey with an apparent copy of the infamous Steele dossier weeks before it was published in early 2017, according to FBI emails released on Thursday. Benjamin Wittes, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, emailed Comey, who was FBI director at the time, on Dec. 28, 2016, saying that he had received a “very strange document” from a reporter...
    Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie has some tough decisions to make this offseason. Still being alive for the NFC East crown does not hide the fact the Philadelphia Eagles are an absolute mess in 2020. Fans around the country got to see that Monday night and fans in Philly may be wondering what changes will come this offseason. Some are calling for Doug Pederson to be fired. Others want Carson Wentz benched immediately, as his contract makes it impossible to simply cut him loose.

    The NightWare app uses the Apple Watch's biometric monitoring to identify and respond to nightmares. NightWare The FDA recently approved an app that claims to stop nightmares. The app, NightWare, uses heart rate and movement data to identify nightmares and vibrate users out of their dream states. Sleep experts said the vibrations would likely stop a nightmare, but won't address its root cause. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Nightmares are almost universally harmless. But for an estimated 3 to 8% of the population, recurrent nightmares are a disturbing problem that can wear down mental health and sleep quality. The medical device company NightWare created an app meant to help the numerous post-traumatic stress disorder patients who experience traumatizing and persistent nightmares.  The app, which was approved by the FDA this month, uses the Apple Watch's biometric monitoring technology to learn a user's sleep patterns and distinguish...
    Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that he did not think the 2020 presidential election was rigged. Guest-host Dana Bash asked, “I want to move on to the Coronavirus. Just yes or no. Do you, Roy Blunt, as not just the former secretary of state of Missouri, as the rules chairman, you have a bird’s eye oversight view of the elections, you think it was rigged? Yes or no.” Blunt said, “I don’t think it was rigged, but I do think there was some things that were done that shouldn’t have been done. I think there was some element of voter fraud, as there is in every election, but I don’t have any reason to believe that the numbers are there that would have made that difference. I do wish in Pennsylvania, when they were opening all of those ballots, they would have let people...
    By Theresa Waldrop | CNN “You just have to dance, we can make a little money like that.” That’s what Shandel, then 13, said her boyfriend told her at a party he had taken her to some 12 years ago. And that’s how it all began, Shandel, now 25, recalled. Gradually, the man she thought of as the only person who loved her or even cared for her, demanded more. Much more — and she said he would physically abuse her if she refused. Even now, it is difficult for Shandel — who requested CNN use only her first name due to privacy concerns — to talk to strangers about what she was forced to do with men. She had left an abusive situation at home — her dad was on drugs, and her mother had “her own issues,” Shandel said. The man she left home for “was the first...

    The thing about Hillbilly Elegy is that it is a garbage movie. That’s not a flippant dismissal of the new Netflix film, directed by Ron Howard, based on J.D. Vance’s 2016 memoir, and starring Amy Adams and Glenn Close in backwoods drag. It’s to say that, when carefully considered, there is very little, if anything at all, that is redeemable about it; whatever misguided intention there was behind it, the resulting product is disposable. If you’re clued in to the world of Film Twitter or have perused coverage of the movie, you’ve already been made aware of that response. Since its review embargo broke three weeks ago, critics’ pans flooded the internet like a gushing sewer leak. The film is told from the perspective of J.D. Vance (Gabriel Basso), a former Marine and Yale law student from Appalachia. When his mother’s (Adams) drug addiction disrupts his life yet again, he...

    In keeping with their inability to enjoy moments of triumphs, Democrats have embarked on a soul-searching expedition as to why the party failed so poorly down the ballot even as it ousted President Donald Trump from office. Into the mix of explanations, this week, comes one of the more dire and narrow-focused offerings: an argument that the party will never regain majority status in the Senate unless it starts taking on monopoly power; mainly, Big Ag. In a memo obtained by The Daily Beast, officials at the Open Markets Institute, an upstart liberal economic think tank, argued that Democrats are doomed in rural communities until they begin to address the consolidation of power among agricultural businesses. “Democrats have been lamenting the urban clustering of their supporters for decades, but, time and time again, they’ve neglected the key to recouping rural support: stopping agricultural, food processing, and retail monopolists,” the memo...
    CNBC's "College Voices 2020" is a series written by CNBC interns from universities across the country about coming of age, getting their college education and launching their careers during these extraordinary times. Michelle Gao is a senior at Harvard University, studying government and statistics. The series is edited by Cindy Perman.fizkes | iStock | Getty ImagesSome college students have seen their parents laid off, lose jobs or close businesses — major events that have shaken their family finances. That's forced some to have to jump in earlier than expected to help their family financially. And, it's caused them to really take a hard look at their dreams. Is what they originally intended to do after graduation still worth it? Over 50% of parents with college-age students said one earner had lost a job or had work hours reduced, and nearly 8% had a "catastrophic" experience where all sources of income were...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — COVID-19 brings big changes for college students in Chicago. The University of Illinois Chicago is switching to all remote learning. CBS 2’s Jeremy Ross reports from the UIC campus where the overall reaction on campus has been mixed. Most students have been fully online, so the announcement barely makes a dent in terms of schedule. But psychologically, that’s a different story. “I don’t really think it feels like school at all,” lamented UIC senior Kate Soja. It may look like a university campus, but the learning traffic here is about to take a detour — to the web. Powell McCarthy is one of more than 20,000 students about to learn completely online. Only about 10% were taking part in in-person learning before the school’s announcement. “It definitely has been a huge culture shock for me,” McCarthy said, who is currently studying computer science. Chancellor Michael Amiridis said after...
    Houston Texans star J.J. Watt appeared to be unhappy with the front office’s decision to fire award-winning public relations boss Amy Palcic amid an ever-changing time within the organization. The Texans are sitting at 2-6 through the first nine weeks of the season.

    I spent one week dunking my face in ice water to help soothe some of the skin issues I'm having. Jen Glantz for Insider After speaking with a cosmetic dermatologist, I tried doing ice-water facials every day for a week. The easy and affordable practice consists of plunging your face into ice water to reduce puffiness and minimize imperfections.  I noticed my skin was a little irritated right away, but after a few days, I saw some improvement. This isn't something I'm likely to keep in my daily routine, but I might do it again for special occasions.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” White House Coronavirus Task Force member Dr. Anthony Fauci stated that distribution of a coronavirus vaccine will “likely” begin next month and that he thinks people who are not high on the priority list to receive the vaccine are “going to get vaccinated within the first four months. I would say by April, you’ll be able to be vaccinated.” Fauci said that dispensing the vaccine will “likely” start in December. Later, host Jake Tapper asked, “I’m not high on the priority list. When will I be able to get the vaccine, when would my family be able to get the vaccine? Do you think by May, by June? What are we talking?” Fauci responded, “No, we’re talking probably by April, the end of April, I would think. Again, these are just guesstimates. I believe that within the next — within the first quarter.”...
    Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. Control of the Senate will be decided in Georgia on Jan. 5, 2021, with a pair of runoff elections pitting Democrat Jon Ossoff against Sen. David Perdue and Rev. Raphael Warnock against Sen. Kelly Loeffler. “I don’t think it’s possible to overstate how big these races are,” the New Georgia Project’s Nse Ufot told The Washington Post. One major question is how much either President-elect Joe Biden or Donald Trump will engage in the race. Democrats having control of the Senate would be a huge advantage for Biden, but “Some close allies” told the Post he needed to be careful about "chasing the white whales." Trump, meanwhile, is too busy having temper tantrums over his own loss for much to be known about if or how he will ultimately weigh in on the Georgia runoffs. If you live in Georgia, register to vote now and share that link with your family and...
    Joe Biden won’t “heal the country” – he wouldn’t dare try.  If Biden really wants to bring the nation together, he could start by proving to the satisfaction of all voters that his election was free and fair. He should encourage a recount in those states, like Georgia, which remain too close to call, and join the Trump campaign in investigating possible chicanery in Pennsylvania and computer “glitches” that reportedly boosted Biden’s winning tally in Michigan.  PENNY NANCE: 2020 ELECTION'S ONLY WAVE – REPUBLICAN WOMEN DOUBLE NUMBERS IN THE HOUSE Almost certainly a review of ongoing election controversies will not change the outcome; the former vice president will likely remain the president-elect. Still, demanding transparency would be a good beginning for Biden. Taking an office that millions of Americans believe you “stole” will only deepen our country’s divide.   But imagine the blowback he’d get from Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, who tweeted:  "Any R now promoting rejection of an election …  should never serve in office, join a...
    Sir Rod Stewart wanted to improve the heating at his Grade II listed mansion in Essex by installing double glazed windows Sir Rod Stewart has lost a battle to install double glazing at his 18th century mansion to make it warmer. The legendary singer wanted to improve the heating at his luxury property in Harlow, Essex, by getting rid of old, draughty windows. The 75-year-old rocker has already had draught proofing work done to the single-pane sash windows and had shutters fitted to them. He then applied to replace them with double glazed windows to improve 'thermal efficiency' at the home on the edge of Epping Forest he shares with wife Penny Lancaster. The work required planning permission from Epping Forest District Council because his home is a Grade II listed building. The council have now rejected the plans to winter-proof Durrington House after their own conservation team objected...

    THERE has been plenty of talk this week about diving. Cheating. Simulation. Going down too easily. 4West Ham fans were unhappy with Mohamed Salah's theatrics last weekendCredit: EPA 4Harry Kane was also criticised as Tottenham beat BrightonCredit: AP:Associated Press Two of the Premier League’s finest players — Mo Salah and Harry Kane — were accused of winning penalties with a lack of total honesty last weekend. But if you really think that professional footballers were looking at those incidents and saying, ‘It’s embarrassing, it’s got to stop’ then you’re sadly mistaken. No one in the game is outraged. No one thinks it’s anything like an athlete doping in the 100 metres. It’s our job to win games of football. To do whatever it takes, to gain any advantage. If there is any sort of contact from a defender in the penalty box, then it is perfectly acceptable to go down....
    Defense is one of the major question marks that could push LaMelo Ball out of the top spot in the NBA Draft. But those concerns may be overblown. LaMelo Ball’s defense was not the reason he acquired over five million followers on Instagram before turning even 18 years-old. As it turns out, heaving from behind halfcourt mid-game and making at-home videos with your brothers plays better online than off-ball stunts and veer switches. On both plays, LaMelo recognizes that it’s his responsibility to drop down and deter a potential lob to a sealing big man (as preventing shots at the rim are still the most important component to good NBA defense), before closing out hard but under control to his own man. Even if the opponent in the first clip created separation and scored, I’m still impressed by LaMelo’s ability to seamlessly transition from a vertical sprint toward the perimeter...

    For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter. This photo of the Texas Supreme Court gives me the smallest drop of hope, like the water they found on the moon: But it is very good that these courts—Texas, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida among them—are being forced to carve out some kind of legitimacy over Zoom. I know what you’re thinking: Isn’t the Texas Supreme Court a retrograde, anti-democratic misery pit built to notarize right-wing dictates? Sure. I realize that the Southern state courts are not affiliated with hope, and if they could they would rule it unconstitutional. Through geographic remoteness and other kinds of physical inaccessibility, through smug obscurantism, through pageantry and grand architecture, the courts (and other institutions) have wormed into our brains the sense that they are Over There: that the state is somewhere up and off and...
    David Daley - Katie Fahey November 2, 2020 10:00AM (UTC) This year, Virginia voters have the rare opportunity to lead the way on making necessary structural change to our democracy by approving Amendment One on the general election ballot. This bipartisan state constitutional amendment will create Virginia's first redistricting commission and would prohibit partisan gerrymandering in Virginia once and for all.  That's the good news. The bad news is that some members of one political party have been stonewalling this progress over the last year. It's probably not the party you think.  : Although the history of the 2010 redistricting cycle unequivocally shows that Republicans created some of the most rigged, gerrymandered maps in our nation's history, this time it is some Virginia Democrats who have been the more recent roadblocks as Amendment One has moved toward the voters. For context, amending Virginia's constitution involves rigorous vetting. An identical version...

    Democratic candidate Joe Biden had trouble getting his words out on Saturday during a rally in Michigan as he railed against President Trump's plans for healthcare. Biden was on a roll as he told voters how Trump would take away their protections from pre-existing conditions and destroy the Affordable Care Act when he suddenly muttered something completely unintelligible. 'We're also going to act to protect health care. Trump and the Republicans just jammed through a Supreme Court nominee for one overwhelming reason, as Barack said, the president said, they have been trying with over 50 shots to take out Obamacare, to destroy the Affordable Care Act,' Biden started.    Democratic candidate Joe Biden had trouble getting his words out on Saturday during a rally in Michigan as he railed against President Trump's plans for healthcare Former U.S. President Barack Obama and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden greet each other...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — As New Yorkers continue to wait in long lines for early voting, there are still many unanswered questions from the New York City Board of Elections. All week long, CBS2 News has been requesting an interview with BOE executive director Michael Ryan.

    Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer slammed President Trump for downplaying the alleged kidnapping plot against her, accusing him of stoking a "mob mentality" toward public officials. "I don't think it's funny," she said of Mr. Trump's rhetoric during an interview with CBS News on Wednesday. "And anyone who thinks it's funny has a real twisted sense of what humor is." Whitmer spoke with CBS News chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett for this week's episode of "The Takeout" podcast, which will air in full on Friday. During a rally in Lansing, Michigan, on Tuesday, Mr. Trump blasted Whitmer for imposing stay-at-home orders earlier in the year due to the coronavirus pandemic. When the president first mentioned the Michigan governor's name, the crowd began chanting, "lock her up." Mr. Trump responded, "I don't comment on that because every time, if I make just even a little bit of a nod, they say, 'the...
    Disney shared this mock-up image to show what the entrance will look like. Disney Parks Walt Disney World announced on Monday that it's changing iconic entrances that feature flag-embellished arches and cutouts of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. The new design is being made to complement other renovations, according to the Disney Parks Blog, and will no longer feature Cinderella Castle or the phrase "Where Dreams Come True." Some fans, however, argue that the new design lacks magic, and shouldn't be a priority as Disney employees are being laid off. Similar criticism was aimed at Disney World after it unveiled the new pink-and-gold exterior of Cinderella Castle over the summer. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    Senator Ted Cruz dismissed the efficacy of the Trump campaign’s recent effort to use Hunter Biden as a political cudgel, telling Axios’ Jonathan Swan it won’t move a single voter. Cruz appeared on Axios on HBO and already made some news for falsely claiming that President Donald Trump didn’t really campaign on getting rid of the federal deficit (which he did.) In this clip, the Texas Senator and former political rival of President Trump reviewed the second and final presidential debate and praised Joe Biden, saying that one of his best points was when the former Vice President said that all of these attacks about each other’s families, “they don’t matter, what matters is your family.” He added, “that may have been Biden’s best moment, actually.” “So you don’t believe voters are moved by the Hunter Biden story,” Swan followed. Cruz grimaced as he said, “I don’t think it moves...
    Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is apparently still fuming over her loss to President Donald Trump in the 2016 election. During a recent appearance on Kara Swisher's New York Times Opinion podcast, "Sway," the former secretary of state alleged that she was "born" to be president and that it literally makes her "sick" to her stomach to think of another Trump win.What did she say? At one point during the lengthy interview, Swisher asked Clinton if she thought a woman president would handle the coronavirus pandemic more ably. Clinton quickly responded by tooting her own horn, saying, "I have no doubt, especially if it were me." I was born for that. I mean, that's why I knew I'd be a good president. I was ready for crises and emergencies, and I would have done what you see these women leaders doing. You listen to the science....
    CBS News reporter John Dickerson said Friday that despite President Donald Trump’s efforts in Thursday night’s presidential debate, it is unlikely that the Hunter Biden email story will impact the looming election because the “news cycle” will ignore the story. “Joe Biden has an ally in the news cycle,” Dickerson told “CBS This Morning,” adding that “if President Trump tries to shift the turf under the Biden family for the purposes of muddying Joe Biden, the news cycle keeps returning to the central piece of this campaign which is coronavirus and the president’s response to it, and the country has a very negative view of that.” The New York Post first reported that an email recovered from a laptop left at a Delaware computer repair shop in April 2019 showed that both Hunter Biden and then-Vice President Joe Biden met with a top executive of  Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian...

    Dear Amy: Why is it so acceptable to drink alcohol as an activity? Alcohol impairs judgment, disinhibits, often gets paired with other drugs, ruins families, leads to serious health problems, causes traffic and other accidents, and deaths. Columnist Amy Dickinson (Bill Hogan/Chicago Tribune)  Yet, people all the time get together to have a drink, meet over drinks, go out drinking, celebrate with drinking, receive bad news by having a drink, boost their confidence with a drink, serve every dinner with a drink, etc. Why is this necessary? I don’t understand it any more than I understand why most people drive well over the speed limit.

    Alex Thomas October 22, 2020 0 Comments Former President Barack Obama encouraged Americans to vote by mail this week and posted a video of himself going through the process, saying that “it’s not as tough as a lot of folks think.” Obama opened the video saying, “I thought I would share with you how I’m voting because I’ve been voting by mail for years. And you’ll see that it’s not as tough as a lot of folks think.” After opening the ballot, Obama said, “The first person to vote for is my favorite candidate for president and vice president. Generally, I don’t share my ballot — in this case though, I think you all know. I’m voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.” While the Obama family has lived in Washington, D.C., for the past few years, he still votes in Illinois. The former president rose in law and...

At the roundtable of community leaders, Anthony Phillips, the executive director of a youth civic engagement organization in Philadelphia, asked the president, “Given our political and social atmosphere, why should young Black men care to be engaged in the political process?” Obama didn’t mince words. “What I consistently try to communicate during this year, particularly when I’m talking to young brothers who may be cynical about what can happen, is to acknowledge to them that government and voting alone isn’t gonna change anything,” he said. “Young people are sophisticated, so there’s no point in overhyping what...
    (CNN)Many Republicans speak of originalism as though it were a commandment written into the text of the Constitution. They speak reverently of strict obedience to the plain meaning of the Constitution at the time it was written, and to its framers' original intent. But their brand of originalism more closely resembles a tool they use to achieve whatever their current policy goals are. Derek BlackDemocrats, in contrast, often recoil at originalism as if it were a dirty word. But originalism -- properly understood and applied -- can be just as friendly to Democrats as Republicans. Both parties' misunderstandings do the principle a disservice in a way that may threaten our democracy's future. The most fundamental aspect of our original constitutional system is the restraint of power. Presidential restraint. Congressional restraint. Judicial restraint.The Constitution grants the president few explicit powers. The president commands the armed forces, appoints officials and judges...

    The Breakfast Club host Charlamagne tha God says more black voters are drawn to and support President Donald Trump in the presidential election because he is actively courting them and the “old Democratic regime” thinks black voters will simply “fall in line.” In an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon, the radio presenter explained that many black votes, especially males, appreciate how the president is actively targeting them as part of his campaign message. “When it comes to black people you see who maybe are showing support for Trump, I think it’s because Trump is actually talking to young black male voters. He’s directing ads toward them. They are a group that never get courted,” Charlamagne said. “Black people don’t get courted either as a whole. But that old Democratic regime speaks to old black men and they think everybody else in the black community and black families are going to fall...

    Coming off of the dueling town halls for President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, it was inevitable that Saturday Night Live would poke fun at both. However, it was comedic legend Jim Carrey’s version of Biden that people aren’t loving.

The recreation of NBC’s controversial town hall with Trump (played by Alec Baldwin) was given a thumbs-up.

    CBS News is chronicling what has changed in the lives of residents of some of the biggest battleground states in 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic. Students in the Milwaukee Public Schools last saw their teachers in-person in mid-March before the COVID-19 pandemic forced Governor Tony Evers to shutter the schools. This set off a chaotic effort to ensure students were still receiving basic needs, including free breakfast and lunch, and figuring out remote instruction once it became clear students wouldn't be returning to the classroom. Seven months later, virtual learning continues in Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS), Wisconsin's largest school district. When the decision was made in July to start the year virtually, some parents applauded the district for taking the safe route, while others spoke out against the plan. They didn't think the spring semester had worked out well and feared students would fall behind.  Get Breaking News Delivered to...

    Maybe you don't like politics with your beer. Or maybe you think small businesses should stay above the ideological fray so that they don't alienate one group of potential customers while catering to another. It's an understandable take, but one that really isn't possible anymore in a country that is now truly divided. Even the simplest choices — such as what organization to donate money to or whether or not to support the Black Lives Matter movement or enforce mask rules — can have repercussions. So, with that "damned if you do, damned if you don't" environment as the background, a few breweries are putting politics on tap. Others are simply encouraging people to vote, including Arvada's Luki Brewery, which is offering people the chance to vote on the style characteristics for its yet-to-be-brewed Democracy IPA, which will be released on November 3 — election day.

Carlos Rivera, who lives at the encampment at Belmont and Kedzie avenues, was starting his day when he saw two strangers coming in and out of the encampment.

    A family of seven from Malden, Washington, has suffered immensely over the past few weeks as first their home was destroyed by a wildfire — and then they all contracted the coronavirus. First, the wildfireMatthew and Jessica Graham, along with their five children, lost their home and everything in it when a wildfire tore through their small town over Labor Day weekend, KREM-TV reported. The Grahams were in Idaho visiting Jessica's parents when they received word that a fire had sparked back home. They were notified by a friend that the town library and post office had caught fire and their house was directly in the wildfire's path. Shortly after, they received the devastating news that their house had been consumed and that nothing was left except, thankfully, the dog and the chickens. "[The friend] told us that it was a total loss," Matthew said. "It just felt like a...
    I like to think of myself as worldly enough to appreciate all kinds of music, but I draw the line at heavy metal. Not all of it — Heavy Metal magazine is a sci-fi institution, and ’80s hair metal and spandexed goons should be cherished — but definitely the guttural, headbanging shit. No offense to the fans of thrash metal, folk metal, death metal, gothic metal, doom metal, industrial metal, grindcore, power metal, speed metal and, of course, the German wave of Neue Deutsche Härte: My stoner ears just aren't that hard-core. But my lungs are darker than any music could be, so what are a few nugs of a strain named Hardcore OG going to do? After smoking a joint of Hardcore OG on an empty stomach, I've learned that when it comes to weed, as with music, toilet paper and porn, I'm more of a soft-core guy. Named...
    “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” unexpectedly added a new killstreak in “Warzone” on Tuesday that is being criticized on social media by fans of the game mode. The “Foresight” streak, which can be picked up from the ground in bunkers following the Season 6 update, allows players to see every circle location for the remainder of a match. People who get the streak, then, have a massive tactical advantage over everyone else. Campers in particular could use “Foresight” to set up where the safety zone shrinks to and pick off targets as they are pushed into the area.

    VIDEO5:0405:04Elon Musk: Tesla will be worth more in five yearsSquawk Alley Tesla's stock has already risen over 400% this year, but CEO Elon Musk said he thinks the company "will be worth more in 5 years" in an interview with Kara Swisher for a New York Times podcast. "Some critical mass of the market has concluded that Tesla will win, I guess," said Musk on the stock's increases. "I've gone on record already saying the stock prices have been high, and that was well before the current level. But also if you ask me, do I think if Tesla will be worth more than this in 5 years? I think the answer is yes." In May, Musk tweeted that Tesla's stock price was "too high," which sent it down 12% that day. However, since he made those remarks, shares are up almost 200%. In the wide-ranging interview, Musk also said, "Tesla...
    Joe Sargent/Getty Images Heinz Field during the game between the Houston Texans and the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 27, 2020. On Sunday, before the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Houston Texans 28-21 at Heinz Field, Steelers team president Art Rooney II appeared on the team’s pregame radio show on WDVE 102.5 FM and sounded hopeful that fans will soon be allowed to attend the team’s home games. “We feel good about our outdoor plan we submitted to the authorities,” Rooney said. “We’re seeing around the country other stadiums having fans and so far not having any major outbreaks of the virus because of that situation. We really think it’s time.” According to Rooney, the team’s plan includes “seating pods” that accommodate two to eight people, and if the plan goes into effect, season ticket holders will have priority in terms of selecting pods. The team will...

    California has already endured its worst fire year in recorded history, but with more heat and wind in the forecast, officials say conditions could get even worse as the state enters the peak of its traditional burning season. Another heat wave is bearing down on California — adding a potent ingredient to an unwelcome meteorological cocktail that will bring dangerous fire weather conditions to some parts of the already scarred state. It could be a double threat, making it harder to contain still-burning fires while also helping spark new ones when firefighting resources are already stretched thin. In recent years, some of California’s worst fires have ignited in October, November and even December, when hot Santa Ana, sundowner and diablo winds bear down, fanning the flames. “There are another two months of drama ahead,” climatologist Bill Patzert said. “If you think the season is bad now, just wait.” Even...
    By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The Celtics did not play like a desperate team on Wednesday night. They were sluggish to start Game 4 against the Miami Heat, and then continued to play some pretty sloppy basketball throughout. Now they’re just one loss away from being sent home from the NBA bubble. Miami took a 3-1 series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals with a 112-109 victory on Wednesday, meaning Boston will be fighting off elimination come Friday evening. The Celtics better come out with a lot more juice than they did Wednesday night, otherwise their bubble is going to burst pretty quickly. They didn’t have any sense of urgency when Game 4 tipped off, and Miami took control early despite looking pretty rusty themselves following a three-day break in the series. Boston committed 11 turnovers in the first half and 19 overall in Game 4, leading...

    Bad news, Californians, but 2020’s fire season may not be an aberration. In fact, we’re probably facing years of increasing fire, smoke, death and destruction both in rural towns and suburban foothills unless we and the rest of the country get on the same page on how to deal with this threat. At least that’s how Tom Harbour, retired fire chief of the U.S. Forest Service, sees it. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Harbour, who led the agency’s fire response for 11 years and spent 46 years in firefighting, gave his thoughts on how California and the West have arrived on this fire-filled path and the difficult choices that would have to be made to leave it. “The broad confluence of factors that you got there in California — the Meditteranean climate, the [dead trees] in the Sierra and then over 2 million properties at risk —...
    IT'S supposed to be the most important day of your life - so it's only natural that most brides want all eyes to be on them at their wedding.

"She is not being malicious," the bride wrote. "Rather [she is] being encouraged by people to wear it. My family, specifically my mom, think I'm insane to have any questions about this dress." As well as taking issue with the dress' train, the bride feared...

    John Lennon's killer has apologised to the singer's widow, Yoko Ono, saying he thinks about the 'despicable act' all the time. Mark David Chapman, 65, was denied parole for an 11th time following a hearing last month. He has been locked up since murdering the beloved former Beatle in Manhattan in December 1980. He shot Lennon four times outside the Dakota apartment building in the Upper West Side, as Ono looked on.  A transcript of the parole hearing has revealed that the board rejected Chapman's release on the grounds it 'would be incompatible with the welfare of society'.  Mark David Chapman, seen left in a 2018 mugshot, has been denied parole for the 11th time.

    White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Monday commented on replacing recently deceased Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. As Democrats and Republicans quarrel over whether or not the president in the final year of his term should nominate a justice, McEnany pointed to remarks made by Democrats in 2016 to justify nominating Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. She then advised that replacing Ginsburg “can be done” before the upcoming presidential election, and the White House thinks “it will be done.” “We do think that we will end up having the votes,” McEnany stated. “We encourage Republican senators to take a look at this nominee we’re putting forward. It will be a very talented woman. The president did confirm that it will be a woman. So, we do think that it will be, of course, a tight turnaround. We know Justice Ginsburg, in fact, who we honor her legacy...
    Patrick Mahomes won the NFL MVP award in his second season in 2018. Lamar Jackson won the NFL MVP award in his second season in 2019.   Is Kyler Murray about to keep that second-year trend rolling in 2020?

    (CNN)Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff Marc Short told reporters Sunday that he doesn't believe the timing of President Donald Trump's announcement on a Supreme Court nominee will "take us long" following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. "I don't think it will take us long," Short said after an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union."The vacancy on the bench creates what many conservatives view as a once-in-a-generation opportunity to move the makeup of the court from its current split of five conservative justices and four liberal justices to a more dominant 6-3 majority.Trump, Short said, has already spoken with a lot of the candidates on his list before the seat was vacant. Short would not comment on the White House re-interviewing candidates this spring, but did not deny that they had the search process underway before there was a formal vacancy. On Saturday, Trump quickly moved...
    Jimmy Butler lamented another slow start from the Miami Heat as the Boston Celtics held on for a 117-106 win in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals. Miami’s lead in the series was cut to 2-1 as Boston raced out to an early lead and saw it out, with four Celtics players scoring at least 20 points. The Heat had overturned a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit to win Game 1, while they rallied from a 15-point hole in the third quarter to take Game 2, yet this time around Miami, who trailed by 20 points at one point in Game 3, were unable to muster another comeback. “I think it gets old, playing from behind consistently,” Heat swingman Butler told reporters. “Especially against a great team like Boston and what they bring to the table.” Boston led 31-22 after the first quarter and though Miami scored 32 fourth-quarter...
