    Rangers forward Artemi Panarin is taking time away from the team amid allegations that Panarin assaulted an 18-year-old woman in a bar in 2011. The allegations, which are being widely questioned and discredited given the original source, state that Panarin assaulted the woman in a Latvia bar and paid 40,000€ (about $48,651) to keep the situation covered up. The event is said to have happened after Panarin’s team lost a game. A supposedly frustrated Panarin is alleged to have beaten the woman and hurried off to his hotel room. The Rangers issued a statement in support of Panarin on Monday: The Rangers’ statement in its totality: Artemi vehemently and unequivocally denies any and all allegations in this fabricated story. This is clearly an intimidation tactic being used against him for being outspoken on recent political events. Artemi is obviously shaken and concerned and will take some time away from the team. The Rangers fully support...

When the end came, my Dad knew we were there with him -- at his side, in our home....

    Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D) has urged residents to support Michigan businesses amid her ongoing lockdown orders, but her campaign sent a mailing printed in and sent from Wisconsin. The Detroit Free Press reported: The fundraising plea arrived at many Michigan households Tuesday with an envelope showing Whitmer at a construction site and the words: “Fixing the Damn Road Ahead — Together.” Whitmer campaigned in 2018 on a pledge to “fix the damn roads.” Markings on the envelope and the printed materials inside show the postage was paid by Advanced Mail, a marketing company in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and the materials were also printed in Wisconsin, at a union shop. A campaign spokesman claimed it was all just one big misunderstanding. “The Whitmer for Governor campaign has always worked closely with union- and Michigan-based printers, and will continue to do so in the future,” campaign spokesman Christopher Mills told the paper....
    Senator Mitt Romney voiced his opposition Monday to confirming Neera Tanden, President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Office of Management and Budget. “He believes it’s hard to return to comity and respect with a nominee who has issued a thousand mean tweets,” a spokesperson for Romney said to reporters. Romney is the third moderate senator to oppose Tanden’s nomination, as Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Susan Collins (R-ME) also announced that they would vote against her confirmation. Tanden’s history of social media vitriol and activism against Republicans and leftist Democrats has won her few friends in the Senate. She even mocked Biden in 2015 when she was pushing for failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to win the 2016 Democrat presidential primary. Tanden attempted to apologize for her past statements, but the apology appears to have fallen flat. The White House said Monday it will continue to push for Tanden’s...
    WASHINGTON - U.S. Attorney General nominee Merrick Garland plans to tell senators at his confirmation hearing Monday that he is committed to fighting discrimination in American life and extremist attacks against the government.   The 68-year-old Garland, currently a federal appellate court judge in Washington and a 2016 Supreme Court nominee whom Senate Republicans refused to consider in a presidential election year, is one of President Joe Biden’s most important Cabinet selections.   If confirmed by the Senate, Garland would head the Justice Department amid its ongoing investigation of hundreds of supporters of former President Donald Trump, many of them with anti-government views, who stormed into the U.S. Capitol last month to confront lawmakers as they were certifying that Biden defeated Trump in last November’s election.   In addition, Garland could oversee contentious racial disputes involving law enforcement abuses of minorities in criminal cases that has led to massive...
    CNN reporter Lauren Fox described the Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate as “incredibly fragile” Monday and highlighted the “tension” between moderate and progressive Democrats in addressing legislation and executive nominations. In an appearance on “New Day,” Fox listened as host John Berman began the discussion by noting some of the moderate senators from both parties announcing their opposition to the nomination of Neera Tanden to lead the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Berman pointed out that the fact Tanden may not be confirmed “shows us that there’s no margin for error for President Biden in the U.S. Senate.” He then asked Fox what that meant for the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill.

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko thanked President Vladimir Putin on Monday for the economic support his country received from Russia when he was facing mass protests last year. Russia provided Belarus with a $1.5 billion loan last September in a gesture of support for Lukashenko as protesters took to the streets across Belarus following an Aug. 9 election which opponents say was rigged. Lukashenko denies electoral fraud and has clung to power with the backing of the Kremlin, which said at the time that the money was to be put towards refinancing previous loans. "I am of course very grateful for the economic support that you provide to Belarus," Lukashenko told Putin during talks in the southern Russian city of Sochi. "I must inform you that this has not been in vain. The money has not been wasted." Russia's Kommersant newspaper quoted government sources this month as saying...

    New York Rangers star Artemi Panarin is taking a leave of absence from the team after he was accused of beating an 18-year-old girl in Latvia in 2011. The allegations that surfaced in Russian media are being described as "politically motivated" as they come a month after Panarin voiced his support for highly influential Vladimir Putin critic Alexei Navalny last month. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM He posted a picture of Navalny, his wife and their two children on Instagram with the caption "Freedom for Navalny."

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said he is whipping votes for President Joe Biden’s nominee, Neera Tanden, to lead the Office of Management and Budget, despite pushback from senators. “I am working with President Biden to find the extra votes so she can be passed,” he told reporters during a news conference in New York on Sunday, mentioning Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), who said last week he would not vote for Tanden. “I think she would be a very good OMB leader,” Schumer added. Tanden’s confirmation as director is in further jeopardy after Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) announced Monday she will vote against Tanden. “Neera Tanden has neither the experience nor the temperament to lead this critical agency,” Sen. Susan Collins said.

    Chris Harrison, Matt James, and Ben Higgins on season 25 of "The Bachelor." Craig Sjodin via Getty Images "The Bachelor" franchise has come under fire for comments made by host Chris Harrison. Despite calling for more diversity on the show, Harrison defended a contestant's racist behavior. BIPOC contestants' castings now feel like damage control for a series that's prioritized whiteness.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The interview is excruciatingly awkward to watch. For nearly 13 minutes, "Bachelor" host Chris Harrison lectured Rachel Lindsay (the franchise's first Black Bachelorette, who's now a correspondent for "Extra") on cancel culture and the "woke police" — all because Lindsay raised some valid points about the allegations "Bachelor" contestant Rachael Kirkconnell is currently facing.  She's just one of the contestants on what was supposed to be a historic season for "The Bachelor," as Matt James is the franchise's first-ever Black star...
    Madison Summers February 22, 2021 0 Comments President Joe Biden’s nominee for leading the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Neera Tanden, will not have Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-Utah) support. Romney made it clear he will not vote to confirm Tanden for the position. His office said in a statement on Monday, “Senator Romney has been critical of extreme rhetoric from prior nominees, and this is consistent with that position. He believes it’s hard to return to comity and respect with a nominee who has issued a thousand mean tweets,” according to The Hill. Tanden’s confirmation appears to be endangered. The statement from Romney’s office comes shortly after Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) made known Monday she will not support confirming Tanden. “Neera Tanden has neither the experience nor the temperament to lead this critical agency. Her past actions have demonstrated exactly the kind of animosity that President Biden has...
    Samsung has launched support for electrocardiogram (EKG) readings and blood pressure monitoring on its Galaxy Watch Active 2 and Galaxy Watch 3 devices, according to SamMobile. The feature comes courtesy of the Samsung Health Monitor app, which is now available to download from the company’s app store in 31 additional countries. Prior to today, the features were restricted to owners of one of those two devices in South Korea and the US only.

    MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin hosted his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko for talks on Monday, amid media reports suggesting that the leader of Belarus was coming to Russia to secure another loan. The Kremlin extended both economical and political support to Lukashenko after his disputed re-election in August triggered the largest and the most sustained wave of mass protests in Belarus' history. In September, Putin said Moscow would provide a $1.5 billion loan to its ex-Soviet neighbor. Earlier this month, the Kommersant newspaper cited government sources saying that another loan, this time of over $3 billion, would be discussed during Lukashenko's visit to Russia. The Belarusian leader denied the reports last week and said he was “not going there to ask for anything.” The two leaders met in Russia's Black Sea resort of Sochi. In brief remarks before the start of their talks, they highlighted the close economic...

    Republicans are rejecting the idea that they will be harmed in midterm elections next year for voting against President Joe Bidens $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package, despite its popularity with the public, The Hill reported on Monday. “I don’t see any risk to Republicans at all opposing this, especially as it relates to the 2022 election,” said GOP strategist Ford OConnell. Democrats are hoping their relief package will be signed into law soon, with the House expected to vote on the bill this week. House Republican leadership says it is opposed to the relief package, becasuse it isn’t targeted and includes Democrat priorities that have nothing to do with the pandemic, particularly aid to state and local governments, as well as a provision to raise the hourly minimum wage to $15. The White House, pointing to polls showing support for the relief package,is warning that Republicans who oppose the vote are going against...

    Having his belongings stolen was not the only surprise Deion Sanders got during his coaching debut at Jackson State. The other one was far more welcome, though. Former Cowboys teammate Troy Aikman came to Mississippi to support Sanders as his former teammate rolled to a 53-0 win over Edward Waters College. “My man @troyaikman showed up to Veterans Memorial Stadium to watch some @gojsutigersfb today and brought me to tears that he would come to support me and my dream after a difficult week regarding weather in Texas & Mississippi. #TheeiloveJsu,” Sanders wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of the two on the field. Sanders’ postgame press conference included a frustrated rant. “I’m pissed off right now,” Sanders said. “While the game was going on, somebody came in and stole every darn thing I had in [the coach’s office].” There was some confusion that followed, as the school quickly put out a statement claiming...

    TikTok is announcing today that it’s taking a couple small steps to try and help people who are affected by eating disorders. To do this, it’s partnering with the National Eating Disorder Association (or NEDA) to have an eating disorder awareness week, and implementing two new features that aim to provide resources and support to those who need it. If a user searches TikTok for terms like “proana” (short for “pro-anorexia”), or “eating disorder,” the app will now show support resources, along with NEDA’s phone number. Currently, searching the terms only shows the support number, but the new interface will also provide users with advice on how to deal with an eating disorder. Instead of just allowing the user to contact NEDA, the pages will also contain a link to resources.Image: TikTok The tips aim to...

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — With opioid overdoses setting records in 2020, an effort is underway to install boxes in public that would make a frequently used rescue medication available in case of emergency. A group called Wisconsin Voices for Recovery is working with Milwaukee-based pharmacy Serve You Rx to install naloxone boxes around the state. The drug, more commonly known as Narcan, can be administered without a prescription. Wisconsin Public Radio reports the effort comes as more than 81,000 people died of opioid overdoses last year, including more than 500 in Milwaukee County. Dr. Alison Miller of UW Health said giving naloxone is easy and patients usually revive within minutes. She said the naloxone boxes should be seen as similar to the automated external defibrillators in so many public places. The defibrillators can shock a stopped heart back to life. Each box will contain naloxone nasal spray, instructions on how...
    The Republican Party could get a lot smaller if former President Donald Trump decides to create his own third party. More than half, 53.5%, of Trump supporters responded in a recent USA Today/Suffolk Poll that they feel more loyalty to the former commander in chief than they do to the party he led for four years. Only a third of the 1,000 respondents said their loyalty is to the party as opposed to Trump himself. Following the end of the former president’s term, which unceremoniously ended with Trump’s second impeachment in the House and acquittal in the Senate, there was speculation that Trump could form his own party. If he did that, 46% of respondents said they’d support Trump's party over the GOP. TRUMP 'WON'T SAY YET' WHETHER HE'LL RUN IN 2024 Conversely, slightly more than a quarter of those surveyed said they would stick with the Republican...

    MINOT, N.D. (AP) — Bills to help North Dakota's coal industry are getting some traction as the state's Legislature nears its halfway break. The Minot Daily News reports the current session has had more than its usual number of energy-related bills, particularly those aimed at coal. The newspaper reports that Great River Energy's plans to close its Coal Creek generating station near Washburn next year has raised alarms for the coal industry. The bills range from tax holidays to providing more research money to support coal. Sen. Jessica Bell, a Republican from Beulah, has introduced several energy bills. One would appropriate $40 million for a fund aimed at moving carbon capture technology from testing toward commercial use. Scott Skokos, executive director of Dakota Resource Council, a group that supports sustainable use of natural resources, said his organization doesn't oppose clean coal technologies being proposed but questions their feasibility and whether...
    By JOSEPH WILSON and HERNÁN MUÑOZ, Associated Press BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — The imprisonment of a rap artist for his music praising terrorist violence and insulting the Spanish monarchy has set off a powder keg of pent-up rage this week in the southern European country. The arrest of Pablo Hasél has brought thousands to the streets for different reasons. Under the banner of freedom of expression, many Spaniards strongly object to putting an artist behind bars for his lyrics and tweets. They are clamoring for Spain’s left-wing government to fulfil its promise and roll back the Public Security Law passed by the previous conservative administration that was used to prosecute Hasél and other artists. Hasél’s imprisonment to serve a nine-month sentence on Tuesday has also tapped into a well of frustration among Spain’s youths, who have the highest unemployment rate in the European Union.

    Washington (CNN)Republican Sen. Susan Collins will vote against the nomination of Neera Tanden to lead the Office of Management and Budget, dealing another blow to her chances of being confirmed after Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia announced his opposition last week.Collins, a moderate from Maine, was seen as a potential Republican vote following Manchin's decision not to support Tanden. Democrats hold the Senate by a 50-50 margin, and Manchin's announcement was seen as devastating for her chances.She cited Tanden's past criticisms of her Senate colleagues on social media for her decision and said the OMB nominee does not have the "experience nor the temperament" to lead the office. "Congress has to be able to trust the OMB director to make countless decisions in an impartial manner, carrying out the letter of the law and congressional intent," Collins said in a statement Monday.

    It is now available Kodi 19, the new major version of the popular open source multimedia center that in its latest iterations has opted for a slow development model with a release every two years in which, in general, it usually presents important changes in form and substance.

            by Edward Ring  If you want to find a Libertarian Party organization that has achieved relevance, look no further than Georgia. That’s where Shane Hazel, running for the U.S. Senate as a Libertarian, garnered 2.3 percent of the vote in November. Hazel’s showing may have been insignificant, but the Republican candidate, David Perdue, only needed 0.3 percent more votes to have avoided a runoff, where he lost. America’s political system today, with rare exceptions, is a two party system. All that Perdue needed was for one in seven of Hazel’s voters to choose him instead, and the GOP would still control the U.S. Senate. In a two party system, it doesn’t take much to be relevant. Hazel now intends to run as a Libertarian for governor in Georgia in 2022. Libertarians, to their credit, do not operate with the same level of lies and hatred as leftist Democrats. They also...

    Over recent times, F1 has been prepping up for the return of the South African Grand Prix. However, uncertainty prevailed over the actual return of the classic circuit, which last witnessed an F1 race back in 1993. The initial developments directed towards the circuit’s return for the 2022 season. However, that doesn’t seem too practical at the moment. Following the massive financial blow due to the pandemic, the much-awaited South Africa GP could make its way into the calendar only by 2023, according to Warren Scheckter, CEO of SAGP. Furthermore, he also cherished Lewis Hamilton‘s support in bringing the circuit back into the racing calendar.

      On January 28th, General Motors issued a detailed press release signaling its intention to sell nothing but electric vehicles by 2035. The president of the Environmental Defense Fund, Fred Krupp, praised the direction that GM is heading, saying, “EDF and GM have had some important differences in the past, but this is a new day in America.” The development follows GM’s decision to end its support for Trump’s legal effort to roll back Obama’s emission standards and withdraw California’s right to enforce its own regulatory scheme. GM followed up ten days later with a humorous commercial featuring Will Ferrell that aired during the Super Bowl, joking that GM intends to spearhead an American EV sales competition against Norway, a world leader in EV adoption. They have also modernized their company logo. The moves are consistent with the ambitious environmental goals of Mary Barra, a charismatic CEO who has demonstrated...

But there’s many voices in the party.” Trump “should not define our future. We have got to define it for ourself,” the Republican governor added. Hutchinson had said after the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, which led to Trump’s impeachment by the House, that he wanted Trump’s administration to end. But Hutchinson did not join calls for Trump to resign and said impeachment wasn’t a practical option. The Senate acquitted Trump of inciting the attack. Hutchinson’s interview aired days after his...

    Savannah Rychcik February 21, 2021 0 Comments Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) says a future with former President Donald Trump at the helm would “hurt our Republican party.” During his appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” host Dana Bash asked Hutchinson if Trump has been successful at taking down the Republican party as he knows it. “He will only define our party if we let him define our party,” Hutchinson said. He explained it is “fine” for CPAC to invite Trump to speak but suggested it is important they consider other voices. “We have to have many different voices and, in my view, we can’t let him define us for the future because that would just further divide our country and it would hurt our Republican Party,” Hutchinson said.

    The Republican governor of Arkansas came out on Sunday against a potential 2024 White House run for former President Donald Trump, again arguing that the twice-impeached ex-president “should not define” the future of the Republican Party. During an interview on CNN’s State of the Union, Gov. Asa Hutchinson was asked by host Dana Bash about Arkansas State Sen. Jim Hendren—who is Hutchinson’s nephew—announcing his departure from the GOP over Trump’s incitement of the Jan. 6 insurrectionist riot at the U.S. Capitol. “It saddens me and it’s certainly a warning sign to us that there are many out there that would like to see a more civil dialogue and so I have tremendous respect for his—what he announced or what he's thinking there,” Hutchinson said.

    Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson said on CNN Sunday he would not support a Donald Trump 2024 reelection bid. Hutchinson spoke with CNN’s Dana Bash Sunday about a number of topics, including the current tensions within the Republican party. His own nephew, State Senator Phil Hendren, announced last week he is leaving the GOP, chiefly citing the January 6th Capitol riots. Bash asked the governor if Trump has “succeeded in taking down the Republican party as you know it.” “He will only define the party if we let him,” Hutchinson responded. He said he has no problem with the former president speaking at CPAC, but added they should be looking at “a different voice for the future of the party.” When Bash directly asked him if he would ever support Trump again, Hutchinson said no: “He’s got a good family.

I had a doula with my first child and it was an amazing experience.” Brown said she is excited about making connections with other Black doulas in the area and said the program helps to expose what having a doula is for Black families in the area. “I had made connections with a couple of other doulas of color and even in all of my shadowing...

    ISTANBUL (AP) — Turkey’s president says mutual interests with the United States outweigh their differences and has called for more cooperation with President Joe Biden’s new U.S. administration. In a video message late Saturday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan acknowledged that Turkish-American relations were “seriously tested” but stressed that their strategic partnership has “overcome all kinds of difficulties.” Erdogan’s conciliatory tone follows his strongly worded accusations that the U.S. supported Kurdish militants, days after Turkish troops found the bodies of 13 Turkish hostages held by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK in a cave complex in northern Iraq. Ankara has been infuriated by American support for a Syrian Kurdish fighters in combatting the Islamic State group, saying they are linked to the decades-long Kurdish insurgency in southeastern Turkey that the U.S. also lists as terrorists. Erdogan said Saturday the U.S. did not give Turkey the “desired support and solidarity”...
    RANCHO CORDOVA (CBS13) – Todd Sanderson wears the names of fallen Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies and detectives on the back of his shirt, but he now realizes one more will have to be added to the list – 6-year-veteran Deputy Adam Gibson, who died in the line of duty in Cal Expo in January. “I’ve been retired from the sheriff’s office for two years. I didn’t know him, but still a brother,” said Sanderson. Deputy Gibson and K-9 officer Riley died in a shootout.

              An Ohio school has walked back an order requiring teachers to read a script and play a video for students encouraging them to lobby their city council in support of a Sexual Orientation/Gender Identity ordinance. Hilliard City Schools in Hilliard, Ohio, sent an email earlier this month asking teachers to encourage their students to lobby their city council to pass an ordinance that would make sexual orientation and gender identity protected classes. The school received pushback on the move, with one Ohio-based advocacy group calling the ordinance “controversial and dangerous” and saying that the ordinance “would require homeless shelters and domestic violence shelters to allow men to bathe and bunk with women. It would also require businesses and schools to allow men in women’s locker rooms or showers.” “This is an unprecedented violation of the public trust,” said Aaron Baer, president of Center...
            by Catherine Smith  Donald Trump this week refused to meet his former ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida. Politico’s Playbook reported details of the meeting requested by the prospective 2024 presidential candidate, citing a “source familiar” with the incident, according to Breitbart. Haley criticized Trump extensively in an interview with Politico’s Tim Alberta for a magazine cover story on her political future. The former diplomat even suggested that Trump’s political relevance was over. “I don’t think he’s going to be in the picture. I don’t think he can. He’s fallen so far,” she said. “We need to acknowledge he let us down. He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him.” However, after the Politico interview was published, Haley blamed the “liberal media” in a Wall Street Journal op-ed for trying to divide Republicans, Breitbart reported. “The media playbook starts with the demand that everyone...
    February 19, 2021 | 3:19 pm G7 leaders announced that they have pledged to set aside a total $ 7.5 billion in support of COVAX, the international program aimed at ensuring global vaccine equity, after a virtual meeting chaired by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. They announced an increase in financial commitments of more than $ 4 billion for ACT-A and COVAX, bringing the collective support of the G7 to $ 7.5 billion. In addition, they invited all partners, including the G20 and international financial institutions, to join us in increasing support for ACT-A, including to increase access of developing countries to WHO-approved vaccines to through the COVAX facility.

    (CNN)Eighteen months ago, Malcolm was at the vanguard of Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement. Full of bravado and often clad in black, the 21-year-old oversaw a group of 60 combative front-liners who embraced confrontational tactics against the police while demanding greater democracy in the former British colony. Today, he is applying for asylum in the United Kingdom, and separated from his family in Hong Kong where he feels he can longer visit. Malcom believes if he returns to the Chinese city he could be arrested under a sweeping national security law imposed by Beijing on Hong Kong last June, which scaled up penalties against dissent to include punishments as severe as life imprisonment. No room for debate or compromise as Hong Kong introduces sweeping national security rules for schoolsSince then, nearly 100 activists have been arrested under the new law.

    The Conversation Spain Doctors and torture: how is this relationship possible? English engraving showing a cell of the Inquisition in which four forms of torture are practiced. Wellcome Collection, CC BY-NC-SAL Torture can be defined as the act of causing physical or psychological harm to a victim, by different means, without their consent and against their will, and their most common objectives are the following: obtaining confessions or information; fulfillment of a revenge; serve as a prelude to an execution; provide morbid and sadistic entertainment to the torturer. In any case, the most common basis for its practice is subjugation and the breakdown of the victim’s self-esteem and moral resistance. The term “torture” comes from the verb “torquere” (to twist), which has a double meaning, closely related to medical practice: the very act of practicing torture and a meaning that comes to mean “extreme pain and agony”.

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana legislators are supporting proposals that would permanently allow members of local government boards to participate virtually in public meetings. Similar bills approved by the House and Senate would permit boards to adopt policies allowing members to vote virtually as long as they can be seen and heard. State and local government boards have generally been allowed to hold all-virtual meetings since Gov. Eric Holcomb issued an exemption to the current state law requiring in-person meetings last spring as part of the COVID-19 public health measures that are ongoing. The proposals would require at least half of the board members to attend public meetings in person and members participate virtually in no more than half of the meetings except for limited reasons such as illness or military service. The House-passed version would require meetings with virtual participation to also allow the public to observe the meeting online...
    PARIS (AP) — Dozens of people rallied in Paris Saturday to support the anti-migrant group Generation Identity, which is fighting for survival following a government order to dissolve it. An Associated Press reporter saw around 200 protesters, including journalists, at Saturday afternoon’s demonstrations, which were largely peaceful. A counter demonstration also took place in southern Paris against the controversial group. Generation Identity has scraped through several legal battles, but is up against Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin, who wants to disband the controversial group. Critics contend it is a militia espousing a racist cause. The Lyon-based group has influence throughout France and beyond. It contends its members are whistle-blowers on a mission to preserve French and European civilization, seen as undermined by newcomers, notably Muslims. Generation Identity was the backbone of a 2017 “Defend Europe” mission on the high seas with a chartered anti-migrant ship manned by European citizens. Darmanin...

    Washington (CNN)When President Joe Biden announced the US will end support for Saudi Arabia's offensive operations in Yemen, Rep. Ro Khanna felt the decision was a vindication of a fight he's been engaged in for years.In 2017, Khanna, a progressive Democrat from California, introduced a measure that came to be known as the Yemen War Powers resolution.

In an interview with CNN, Khanna called the move "a profound and historic shift" that marks a new chapter in the US relationship with Saudi Arabia.
