    SUSANNA Reid slammed Piers Morgan's "fragile masculinity" and accused him of "arguing with an empty room" in a heated debate about Mr Potato Head. The 55-year-old star was left fuming last week when Hasbro revealed they'd ditched the "Mr" from their umbrella Potato Head brand name - although male and female versions remain available to buy. 6Piers ranted about Potato Head changing its brand name on today's GMB Piers kicked off today's Good Morning Britain by ranting about the move, which baffled Susanna as she repeatedly clarified that Mr and Mrs Potato Head still exist. She tried to reason: "Piers, they are not getting rid - do not worry, don't let your fragile masculinity be threatened. "They are still having Mr Potato Head, no-one's getting rid of Mr Potato Head!" But Piers wouldn't back...
    Getty Draymond Green complains about a call during a game against the Utah Jazz. Just days after potentially costing the Golden State Warriors a win while arguing a late call, Draymond Green took a more scientific approach in getting his point across to a referee. Video from Tuesday’s win over the Indiana Pacers showed Green making reference to Isaac Newton’s first law of motion in explaining why he couldn’t have committed a foul that had been called on him. While he wasn’t successful in convincing the referee to overturn the call, he did get some viral attention for his citation of physics in the argument.Green Cites Law of InertiaWith 4:34 remaining in the third quarter, Green was whistled for a shooting foul on Myles Turner. As the Pacers big man went to the line where he would sink both free throws, Green went to work on the referee....
    New York : She got upset thinking that the clerk wanted to scam her. Photo: Ramin Talaie / . It is very likely that there are things that you learned in school that now as an adult you simply do not remember them. But there are basic concepts that we must always remember because they will not be of much use in life. Undoubtedly, one of the least enjoyable subjects as a child is mathematics, which has relatively straightforward and simple concepts that, even if we don’t want to, we will use them in our day to day life. And if you don’t believe this, you should watch the video that went viral from a woman in the United States who only made a fool of herself by arguing heatedly, and bypassing the sanitation rules for the pandemic, for not mastering the concept of what...
    By SARAH RANKIN and DENISE LAVOIE, Associated Press RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A Virginia Senate committee on Monday killed a measure that would have made Virginia's minimum wage requirements apply to farmworkers. The Committee on Commerce and Labor voted against eliminating current exemptions in the law for farmworkers, ending the bill's chances of passing this year. The bill previously cleared the House of Delegates on a party line 55-45 vote, but met resistance along the way from agribusiness, with lobbyists arguing the bill was unnecessary because they said farmworkers are already well-compensated. Others said the current law allows farm workers to be paid for the amount of work they complete, a system they argued was appropriate, given the unique nature of agricultural work and the fact that food is perishable. The farm worker bill’s chief sponsor, Del. Jeion Ward, urged committee members to vote in favor of the bill, arguing...

    A MUM has sparked a heated debate online over who is responsible for keeping kids sun safe at school after sharing pictures of her severely sunburnt son. The Australian mum posted photos of her eight-year-old son’s scalp looking bright red and tender after a day at school. 3The eight-year-old came home from school with a very sunburnt headCredit: Facebook She shared online that she felt “annoyed” the school had let him play so long without sun protection.

She added in the post, “I know he’s eight and should do...
    Luka Doncic has used a lot of energy this season advocating and arguing with the referees. He knows that energy would be better spent elsewhere. The Dallas Mavericks were hoping to break into the ranks of fringe contenders this season but instead, they’ve struggled to play consistently. COVID-related absences took their toll and a 6-4 start was followed by a 6-10 stretch that has them below 0.500 and currently outside the playoff picture in the Western Conference. Frustration has been obvious, up and down the roster, and particularly Luka Doncic’s frustration with the referees. Fans and media members have pointed out repeatedly how much time he is spending arguing with referees and ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith asked him about it directly during a recent interview. What did Luka Doncic have to say about arguing with the referees?The key quote is here: “I think some of it is true, because you...
    Donald Trump's spokesman has denied that one of his lawyers described the former president as a 'f****** crook,' after The Philadelphia Inquirer on Tuesday recalled a conversation between Michael van der Veen and a client.  Van der Veen, 57, was one of three lawyers drafted in a week ago to represent Trump in his trial, alongside Bruce Castor and David Schoen.    On Tuesday van der Veen's local paper spoke to a former client, Justin Hiemstra, who recalled van der Veen calling the then-president 'a f****** crook'. Hiemstra pleaded guilty to attempting to hack into the IRS to access Trump's tax returns, in what van der Veen said was a schoolboy prank.  'I'm not sure if [those comments] were made to make me feel more comfortable, or if they were his actual opinions,' Hiemstra told The Philadelphia Inquirer.  'He definitely came off as fairly anti-Trump in the context that I knew...
    ABC reporter Terry Moran said Wednesday that former President Donald Trump “has the Republican Party as a personalized power” and that it’s as if he is a “caesar” or “fuhrer” to the party. Moran joined ABC’s special coverage of Trump’s impeachment trial and was introduced by host George Stephanopoulos to give his analysis on the House impeachment managers’ Wednesday arguments. (RELATED: ‘Trump Will Be Acquitted’: Former Impeachment Attorney Says ‘There Is A Substantial Defense’ To Be Presented) “Whatever you think of this case, they’ve risen to the moment. This is an atrocity in our history, an atrocity against our democracy, and the care with which the Democratic House managers of this impeachment trial have come prepared, their argument is organized,” Moran said. “They’re ringing the notes of patriotism and the emotion of the attack itself, and surrounding that with what they hope is an evidentiary trail from Donald...
    Lockdowns caused by COVID-19 have led many to pick up a controller, but all those hours gaming with your significant other could cause a strain in the relationship. A survey found a quarter of UK couples have argued over games once or twice a week and about 12 percent said gaming-related fights happened 150 to 200 times a year. The most common sources of strife were Call of Duty and the popular FIFA soccer franchise, which were both responsible for over a third of fights.  However, one in 50 couples admitted to rows over online gaming every single day, and some of the men have contemplating ending the relationship because of it.

    Bradley Cortright February 10, 2021 0 Comments Former President Donald Trump’s defense team is arguing that the impeachment effort against their client is driven not by a moral obligation but by political decisions. In their opening arguments in the impeachment trial on Tuesday, Trump’s lawyers showed senators a montage of Democrats calling for him to be impeached over the years to argue that they have been looking for reasons to impeach him. The montage featured a January 2019 clip of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) telling supporters Democrats would “impeach the motherf**ker.” Additionally, they included a video of Tlaib speaking at an “impeachment rally” in September 2019. During an appearance on MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes” on Tuesday night, Tlaib was asked to respond to being featured in the montage. “I mean, I was right,” the Michigan Congresswoman responded. “This is a person that’s been lawless. Not only that,...
    One of Donald Trump's three impeachment lawyers described the former president as a 'f****** crook' and sued him last year for attempting to disenfranchise Pennsylvania votes through baseless claims of mail-in voter fraud. Michael van der Veen, 57, was one of three lawyers drafted a week ago to represent Trump in his trial, and on Monday signed Trump's response to the House article of impeachment, alongside Bruce Castor and David Schoen.

    Niece wore a revealing all-black look. Instagram babe Niece Waidhofer showed off her bombshell curves in an outfit that covered little of her body while arguing that she looks better with hair covering her face. In a recent Instagram post, which can be viewed here, the Texas-based model creeped out some of her followers by rocking a face mask that had a photo-realistic dark beard printed on it. According to Niece, the facial hair and mouth belonged to Avenged Sevenfold bassist Johnny Christ. In the caption of her latest IG share, Niece joked that she did not agree with the fans who opined that she looks more attractive without facial hair. However, she didn’t wear the hairy mask in the saucy Boomerang video that she included with her response to the beard bashers. Niece was clad in an all-black ensemble that included a pair of panties that often appear in...
    Sen. Bernie Sanders said he's fighting to include a federal $15 minimum wage provision in the coronavirus relief bill, despite President Joe Biden doubting that it will make its way into the legislation. "Well I hope he is [wrong]," Sanders, who helms the Senate Budget Committee, told CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday after being reminded of Biden's reservations on the wage hike. "The president supports the $15 an hour minimum wage. I do. Last poll I saw has 62% of the American people supporting it. Because at the end of the day, we are in the midst of massive income and wealth inequality. People on top are doing phenomenally well, yet we have literally tens of millions of Americans working for starvation wages. You cannot make it in any state in this country on nine or 10 bucks an hour, you gotta raise that minimum wage to 15 bucks...
    The California mother-of-three who has been missing for a month had been arguing with her husband during a family trip camping in the dessert just days before her disappearance, according to the woman's sister and brother-in-law.  Maricris Drouaillet and her husband, Richard, said that Larry and Maya 'May' Millete had been arguing over a Jeep Wrangler that they had brought with them on a family camping trip to the Glamis Sand Dunes in California over the New Year holiday.   The 39-year-old mother was last seen at her Chula Vista home by family on January 7 at around 5pm.   In an interview with DailyMail.com, Maricris - the oldest of six siblings - said their large family had been planning to take a trip up to the mountains to go snowboarding for Maya's daughter's 11th birthday before Maya disappeared.

    Most Americans spend more than 400 hours a year watching shows they don’t even like — just to avoid bickering with their partner, according to a new study. A survey of 2,000 US residents revealed that 67 percent of people in a relationship are willing to suffer through shows that only their partners like for four hours a week rather than argue about what to watch, according to a study published by One Poll this week. The majority of those lovebirds said they were willing to overlook bad acting and predictable plot lines because they love their partners and simply want to avoid fights about changing the channel. And two in three, or 65 percent, believe their willingness to sit through a show or movie they despise is a sign of true love. “The stakes are especially high when making TV-watching choices.

    Fox News contributor Dan Bongino railed against Democrats pushing forward with the Senate trial of former President Donald Trump for inciting the Capitol insurrection by turning to the highly intellectually strategy of…name-calling and ignoring facts. “Let me just say before we start, this is an impeachment for dopey people,” Bongino began. “So if you are dopey, you believe this is a real impeachment. If you’re smart, you are laughing at the stupidity of the document.” The Fox News contributor further claimed to host Sean Hannity on Thursday night that Trump’s January 6th speech didn’t incite violence. “But again, the charges in there are utterly absurd. We already have the transcript of what President Trump said. You have repeated it on the air. How you’re are inciting violence by asking people to march, and I quote ‘patriotically and peacefully.’ I really don’t understand how that it is inciting violence,” Bongino stated. “Again, this is...

    A 52-year-old SoulCycle instructor and Instagram influencer in New York City netted a coveted coronavirus vaccine on Staten Island, justifying the move by arguing that she is an "educator," according to a report. Stacey Griffith scored the jab Friday, even as the city faces a significant shortage of vaccines that has led to tens of thousands of appointments being postponed and the temporary closure of inoculation sites spanning the city. "VACCINE DAY! Step one of the Moderna magic!! One hour drive to STATEN ISLAND worth every minute!" wrote Griffith in a since-deleted Friday Instagram post tagged at Port Richmond High School on the island’s North Shore, according to The Daily Beast.

    The San Francisco Board of Education announced that it would rename 44 schools due to racial sensitivity issues. The schools include ones named for President Abraham Lincoln, Senator Dianne Feinstein, and inventor Thomas Edison. The document explaining the removals makes clear historical errors in justifying the changes of at least eight of the names. A document produced by the San Francisco Board of Education to justify renaming 44 different schools is riddled with spelling and historical errors. The school board voted on Tuesday, Jan. 26, to change the names of schools honoring Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, among others. The move was criticized by San Francisco Mayor London Breed. “The fact that our kids aren’t in school is what’s driving inequity in our City. Not the name of a school,” she said in a press release. Abraham Lincoln Elementary School Lincoln’s name will be...
    Photo credit: Zach Gibson, Getty Images Mitt Romney was just one of five Republican senators Tuesday who votd against an effort to reject the Trump impeachment trial at the outset. Romney has made it clear he believes Trump’s actions in stirring up the angry mob that stormed the Capitol were an impeachable offense, and he’s rejected the idea pushed forth by some colleagues that the trial would be unconstitutional. But with a number of Republicans in both the House and Senate saying the trial would be too divisive, Romney called out that logic in comments reported by The Deseret News: “I say, first of all, have you gone out publicly and said that there was not widespread voter fraud and that Joe Biden is the legitimate president of the United States? If you said that, then I’m happy to listen to you talk about other things that might inflame anger...
    With Republican senators like Rand Paul saying the very idea of a post-presidential impeachment trial is just out of the question, CNN historian Douglas Brinkley argued that logic would set a bad precedent for future presidents. Brinkley said it’s a “foolhardy” notion and said Paul’s just “talking nonsense.” “If you took Rand Paul’s logic at face value, that means any U.S. president in his last three days could burn a White House, could create havoc, could empty the entire jail systems of America with a pardon, could set militia groups on citizens,” he continued. “That would mean any U.S. President in his last days in office would have carte blanche to do whatever they wanted to do and never face an impeachment trial.” He said it’s just part of the “talking points to the Trumpians” and added every senator needs to grapple with the facts of the case instead of...
    Ghislaine Maxwell in 2015. Jared Siskin/Patrick McMullan via Getty Images Ghislaine Maxwell's lawyers made an attempt to have the charges against her dismissed. They argued the grand jury pool wasn't diverse enough, that some of the charges were too vague or violated double jeopardy protections, and that some should take place in a separate trial. The Jeffrey Epstein associate is scheduled to stand trial in July. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Ghislaine Maxwell made an audacious big to convince a judge to drop the charges against her Monday night. Her lawyers argued in court filings that the grand jury that indicted her came from a pool of jurors that wasn't diverse enough because they were from the New York suburb of White Plains rather than Manhattan. "The government procured Ms. Maxwell's indictment using a grand jury pool that excluded residents of the community in which Ms....
    Over the weekend, Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan called Fox News a “hazard to our democracy,” invoking in part the rioting at the Capitol, and said “citizens who care about the truth” should pressure companies that advertise on the network. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson shot back Monday night, going off on Sullivan’s column, another recent Washington Post column going after Fox News, and recent CNN coverage ripping Fox. “Their new idea is this channel shouldn’t be allowed. They’re not arguing that Fox News is inaccurate and dishonest and you shouldn’t watch it, they are arguing that you shouldn’t be able to watch Fox News because Fox should be eliminated by force,” he said. As for CNN, Carlson mocked the cable news network and said they’re arguing “allowing people to watch what they want to watch on TV is a massive threat to democracy.” He brought up Sullivan’s column and...

Guendouzi and Hertha forward Matheus Cunha reportedly got into a heated clash on their way out for the second half during the 3-0 defeat to Hoffenheim. The ex-Lorient man has not featured for Arsenal since the fateful defeat away at Brighton on June 20. He scrapped with compatriot Neal Maupay on the pitch and bragged to the Seagulls players over his £40,000-a-week wages. Before that, Guendouzi was in hot water...
    QAnon Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene said Thursday she has filed articles of impeachment against Joe Biden.  The Republican Congresswoman from Georgia, 46, argued the newly elected president is 'unfit' for office and 'will do whatever it takes to bail out Hunter'.  In a statement Greene indicated she is accusing Biden of abusing his power as Vice President when his son served on a Ukrainian energy company's board. It comes just one day after Biden was sworn into office.  Greene was on Sunday temporarily suspended from Twitter. She has previously expressed racist views and support for QAnon conspiracy theories online. She said in a statement Thursday:  'President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of the presidency. His pattern of abuse of power as President Obama's Vice President is lengthy and disturbing.  'President Biden has demonstrated that he will do whatever it takes to bail out his son, Hunter, and line his...

    John Earle Sullivan, 26,  will be released on bail after being charged in relation to the siege of the U.S. Capitol last Wednesday.  A left-wing activist charged over his role in the siege of the U.S. Capitol Building has made his first appearance in court.  John Earle Sullivan, 26, told CNN that he entered the Capitol during last Wednesday's siege merely to document the chaos, but was later arrested after video emerged purportedly showing him egging on the rioters.  Sullivan has been charged with one count of knowingly entering a restricted building, one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and one count of interfering with law enforcement.  On Friday, he appeared via Zoom from a jail cell in Utah for his first court hearing.  A judge granted Sullivan bail on strict conditions, despite prosecutors pleading for him to remain behind bars until after Joe Biden's Inauguration. ...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A group consisting of Minnesota parents, coaches and athletes have filed a new lawsuit this week over Gov. Tim Walz’s restrictions requiring student-athletes to wear masks during practices and games. The group Let Them Play MN previously sued the governor and other state officials after he instituted a “pause” on youth sports as part of a dial back on COVID-19 restrictions following last year’s surge in virus cases, hospitalizations and deaths. RELATED: Parents Sue Gov. Tim Walz To Lift ‘Pause’ On Youth Sports The group’s lawsuit argued that the pause on youth sports was unconstitutional and unfairly sidelined youth athletes while those in college or at the professional level were allowed to play. A judge denied the lawsuit. Let Them Play MN’s new lawsuit argues that requiring masks is dangerous for student athletes, the group says. “We have repeatedly asked Governor Walz and MDH to show...
    Prince Harry received criticism on social media after he claimed in newly released documents that damage to his reputation could potentially lead to an increase in suicides among army personnel and veterans. According to Newsweek, Prince Harry made the statements following a settlement in his lawsuit with The Daily Mail. The duke had previously sued the publication after the news outlet ran an article claiming that he had abandoned military servicemen in the United Kingdom after stepping down from the royal family and moving to Santa Barbara with his wife and son. The Daily Mail published the accusations after two high-ranking members of the British army, Major General Julian Thompson and Lord Dannatt, publicly criticized the duke and his actions. Prince Harry countered that he had been in private communication with individuals and did not have ample time to respond to the allegations — particularly since he had banned his...
    Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., told Fox News Monday night that he intends to challenge slates of electors from a handful of swing states "to raise the concerns that my constituents have" about the 2020 presidential election. "I have heard from people like I've never heard before over the last month about this election," Hawley told Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum during special coverage of the Georgia Senate runoffs. "They have major, major concerns about the integrity, the fairness of this election. And they expect me to stand up and to raise those concerns. And this is the only forum I have to do it." Hawley added that his constituents also "want action. "They want an investigation into these irregularities. They want new election laws to make sure that our elections are secure going forward," he said. "This is my chance to stand up and speak for them. And somebody has got to...
    Drew Angerer/Getty Images A number of prominent Republicans have spoken out in opposition to the plan, spearheaded by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), to object to Joe Biden electors from the 2020 battleground states being contested by President Donald Trump. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) was first to announce he would object to Biden electors in Pennsylvania. Cruz and 11 other Republican senators followed suit, announcing they would object to electors in every battleground. They senators are not claiming, like Trump, that the election was rigged, but simply that there are enough allegations of fraud from the losing candidate to justify objecting to the results. They are demanding that an election commission be appointed to “audit” the results in “disputed” states (i.e. that swing states Trump lost most narrowly.) But a growing faction of top Republicans is speaking out against those objectors. In the Senate the list those objecting to the objectors is...
    Meghan McCain returned to The View Monday, and the ABC panel show — which often lacked dissent in her absence — quickly veered into heated debate. During the show’s third segment, McCain took issue with her colleagues using terminology like “coup” in relation to President Donald Trump’s attempt to overturn the election, and suggesting martial law could be enacted. “There’s not going to be martial law, and things like that just scare people,” McCain said. She added, “The media needs to be more respectful of Trump voters, and I think that’s how we got to this place to begin with. And going forward in 2021, I think that we need to be respectful of the 70 million Americans that for whatever reason did not feel that they could in good faith, pull the trigger for President [Joe] Biden and Vice President [Kamala] Harris.” Joy Behar, McCain’s frequent sparring partner, promptly...
    Trump supporters with branded bus in December 2020. Did President Donald Trump break the law in asking Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) to “find” votes on his behalf in the 2020 election? It is just under 17 full days until President-elect Joe Biden gets sworn into office, but that is more than enough time for the incumbent to pardon himself. The odds of Trump declaring a self pardon just went up a bunch — Preet Bharara (@PreetBharara) January 3, 2021 The current dialogue about presidential self–pardon stretches back to even before the current administration. One thing is 100 percent clear, however: This federal pardon power does not touch state law. That is definitely something to think about, as some legal experts are arguing that POTUS did not just break federal law in making this case, but state law too.

    The Department of Justice is reported to be 'in ongoing discussions' over whether to appoint a special counsel to probe as Hunter Biden.  Officials there argue the move is 'warranted', Fox News reports Wednesday, despite the objections of outgoing Attorney General Bill Barr.  Hunter Biden disclosed earlier this month the U.S. Attorney´s Office in Delaware is investigating his tax affairs.  Barr, who left office Wednesday, had said Monday he had no plans to appoint special counsels to investigate President-elect Joe Biden's son.

    OAKLAND — The defense attorney for a woman charged with attempted murder of a peace officer for allegedly stabbing an off-duty Oakland cop in the neck after he confronted her as she slashed tires in a parking lot is asking for the officer’s personnel records, arguing he has a history of dishonesty. But the legal debate may not focus on alleged prior acts of dishonesty by the officer, but rather whether he was acting as a private citizen or as a policeman during the incident. At a court hearing earlier this month, Superior Court Judge Don C. Clay said he’s inclined to take the former interpretation, though he won’t make a final ruling until at least early 2021. “I don’t see this as an officer being stabbed in the course of this duty…this guy was a citizen,” Clay said at the Dec. 7 hearing. “He was off-duty.” But as she...

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Two large coal companies have started a new lobbying push as Indiana legislators are poised to again consider steps that could bolster the industry facing a shift toward renewable energy sources. The companies launched a trade association named Reliable Power, aiming to rebrand coal from a polluting, low-tech fuel into a reliable source of electricity, the Indianapolis Business Journal reported. Republican lawmakers are preparing proposals for the legislative session starting in January that they say will address stability and reliability on the electrical grid. Environmental and consumer groups, however, worry that legislation could stall the growth of wind and solar power while propping up the coal industry. Indiana electric utilities have announced plans to shut down at least 10 of the state’s 13 coal-burning power units by 2028, while coal companies in the past year have laid off hundreds of workers at mines clustered in southwestern Indiana....

    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The group that campaigned to legalize recreational marijuana in South Dakota through a voter-backed constitutional amendment has filed in court to defend the amendment in a legal challenge brought by two law enforcement officers. The Rapid City Journal reports South Dakotans for Better Marijuana Laws organized the effort to pass a constitutional amendment legalizing cannabis for adults, as well as providing for its commercial regulation and medical use by minors. The amendment was approved by 54% of voters on Election Day. But two law enforcement officers, Pennington County Sheriff Kevin Thom and Highway Patrol Superintendent Col. Rick Miller, have brought a lawsuit arguing the amendment is not legal because it covers more than one subject and should have been handled as a constitutional revision rather than an amendment.

    President Donald Trump’s top election lawyer in Wisconsin is arguing both he and his wife voted illegally in the 2020 election, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported Sunday. Former Dane County judge Jim Troupis is leading the Trump campaign’s efforts to challenge the result of the November 3rd election in the state. He and the campaign argue the state should deem several voting methods illegal, including “in-person absentee” ballots, which is the voting method both he and his wife used to vote early, the Journal-Sentinel reported. Troupis reportedly declined to answer questions about his voting method, though he acknowledged his own vote is among those the campaign is seeking to throw out, according to the Journal-Sentinel.

    Bradley Cortright November 19, 2020 0 Comments In the wake of surprise losses in the House of Representatives in the 2020 election, some Democrats are arguing the party has moved too far to the left with its policy agenda and that it needs to focus on “meat and potato” issues. However, the push to blame progressive causes for the losses and pivot to a more moderate platform is not going over well with the progressive wing of the party. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said on Thursday, “We have seen the pundits and some of the leaders within the Democratic Party or even some of our colleagues who are freshman talk about us getting back to basics.” “Saying, you know, ‘The Squad, Alex, Ilhan, Rashida all of you have to stop talking about everything you talk about because we need to get back to basics,” she continued.

    President Trump's legal team ramped up challenges to election results in Nevada on Tuesday with a lawsuit that asserts that the president won the state, despite being more than 33,500 votes behind President-elect Joe Biden, due to problems in the voting system and fraud. "The discrepancies and irregularities in this election will eclipse the difference in the votes between the candidates," states the lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Nevada's 1st District Court. That marks a stronger tone from Trump's Nevada legal team than it's taken previously. Former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt, who is helping the Trump campaign's legal effort, told the Washington Examiner last week that it was "absurd" to ask whether the campaign's legal challenge would show that Trump is the true legal winner in Nevada's presidential contest. "There are north of 15,000 people who voted in Nevada and another state," Laxalt said in a press...

Millions of people are jobless and the odds of Congress and the White House compromising on a second stimulus package before 2021 appear low, which has left many Americans to wonder what’s holding up the process.

    It’s the week before Election Day and the Senate is holding final debates on Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. The predicted vote layout makes Barrett’s confirmation a near certainty at this point, meaning she will be President Donald Trump’s third appointment to the court. Barrett’s appointment will mark a conservative 6-3 tilt for the Supreme Court as she replaces the late progressive Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Democrats opposed Barrett’s nomination by arguing that she will dismantle Roe v. Wade and the Affordable Care Act, in addition to arguing the 2020 election should decide which president will nominate Ginsburg’s replacement. Despite an unsuccessful filibuster attempt and procedural efforts to slow Barrett’s confirmation down, it is highly likely that her confirmation vote will succeed at about 7:30 p.m. Eastern, which will be followed by a swearing-in ceremony at the White House.

    Liquor heiress Clare Bronfman wants a judge to spring her from prison while she appeals the stiff sentence he gave her last month for her role in the Nxivm cult — arguing that she suffers from a serious liver disease. Bronfman, 42, allegedly used her $210 million fortune to bankroll the organization and its leader, convicted sex-trafficker Keith Raniere, who operated a secret sex-slave cult in the group that branded women with his initials and forced them into bed with him. Attorney Ron Sullivan Jr. wrote in the motion filed Thursday in Brooklyn federal court that Bronfman has a liver disorder that would put her at high risk if she contracts the coronavirus in prison.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) took Democrats to task on Wednesday morning for wanting to “pack the Court,” giving a concise definition of what the party aimed to do if it won control of the White House and the Senate in the upcoming 2020 election. Cruz said that “packing the Court” meant “expanding the number of justices to achieve a political outcome.” It did not, he added, mean “filling judicial vacancies.” Cruz made his comments during the confirmation hearing for Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who has been nominated by President Donald Trump to fill the vacancy left by the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. Democratic Party presidential nominee Joe Biden has tried to avoid questions about whether he supports packing the Court. So, too, has his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA). Other Democrats, however, openly support the idea. They began arguing for packing the court...
    Today is Columbus Day in those states that still celebrate the federal holiday on the second Monday of October. Colorado is no longer one of them, even though this was the first state to officially observe Columbus Day, making it a holiday in 1907.

Instead, on October 5, the first Monday of the month, Colorado observed the first Frances Xavier Cabrini Day, honoring Mother Cabrini, the Italian immigrant whose good deeds cannot be disputed.

    LONDON (AP) — West Bromwich Albion manager Slaven Bilić was fined 8,000 pounds ($10,100) on Wednesday for arguing with the referee at halftime about the sending-off of one of his players during a Premier League game against Everton. Bilić was sent off for remonstrating with match official Mike Dean on the field of play after Kieran Gibbs was shown a red card for shoving Everton playmaker James Rodriguez in the face moments before halftime of the match at Goodison Park. The Football Association said Bilić’s actions amounted to improper conduct. West Brom was down 2-1 at halftime, and ended up losing 5-2. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press.

    AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A 6-year-old girl who was shot and wounded during a shootout on an Akron street earlier this month has died from her injuries. The Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office said Mar’Viyah Jones, of Akron, died at a hospital Tuesday night. Jones was wounded on Sept. 10, when authorities say two men in vehicles began arguing and then started shooting at each other. Jones was among six children riding in one of the vehicles, and she was shot along with another child, who suffered a graze wound. Marqualle Clinkscales, 23, allegedly fired the shots that struck the vehicle with the children inside. He's been charged with two counts of felonious assault and tampering with evidence. Corey Jemison, 39, who was driving the vehicle Jones was in, is charged with felonious assault and a weapons count. It's not known if either man has retained an attorney. Authorities have...
    Crash experts have questioned how the South Dakota Attorney General could have mistaken hitting a man for a deer during a fatal collision. Jason Ravnsborg told officers that he thought he had hit a large animal while driving home on September 12 to Pierre from a Republican fundraiser some 110 miles away in Redfield. He said he only realized he killed a man, later identified as 55-year-old Joseph Boever, after returning to the site the next morning. Now mechanical engineer Kurt Weiss has told News Watch that had Ravnsborg been driving without distraction: 'It would be easy to tell the difference; even at 100 mph, you would be able to tell the difference between an erect human versus a deer, no question, and that would be part of the interrogation of Mr. Ravnsborg.'  The experienced traffic-accident reconstruction expert added: 'If he [Ravnsborg] is looking forward and had the headlights on, it would be easy to...
    CNN host Don Lemon proposed radically changing the U.S. political system to take power away from the "minority" vote in the country. During the hand-off before his show Monday night, Lemon debated fellow network host Chris Cuomo by arguing Democrats should push to eliminate the Electoral College, which would require a constitutional amendment. Lemon said such a feat was possible if Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden wins the presidency and Democrats "stack the courts." "Until you have a group of people that decide to consistently be better than what they reject, you’re going to have people in the exact position they are right now, Don. Which is no matter what happens, everybody sticks with the team," Cuomo said, arguing both Democrats and Republicans have changed their positions since 2016 on filling a Supreme Court vacancy during an election year. "We're going to have to blow up the entire...
    Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., is facing a bit of mockery over a tweet that inadvertently argued that President Trump should fill the vacant Supreme Court seat. Amid the ongoing battle on Capitol Hill over whether the Senate should confirm a SCOTUS nominee this close to a presidential election, both Republicans and Democrats have been flipping the script from the positions they took in 2016 when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked President Obama's nomination of Judge Merrick Garland. However, while trying to make the argument that Americans should weigh in on the judicial nominee with their votes for president, Klobuchar botched the execution in a Twitter post. LIBERALS BLAST CHRIS MATTHEWS FOR PRAISING TRUMP'S 'TRUE PRESIDENTIAL BEHAVIOR' FOLLOWING GINSBURG DEATH "The people pick the President; the President nominates the Justice. That is how it works," Klobuchar wrote. Many conservatives rejoiced in rare agreement with the prominent Democrat. "I agree and @realDonaldTrump is the President. Glad to have...
    A judge in California has blocked the Commerce Department’s ban on new downloads of China-based messaging app WeChat, Reuters reported Sunday. US Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler said in her order that WeChat users showed “serious questions going to the merits of the First Amendment claim, the balance of hardships tips in the plaintiffs’ favor.” On Friday, the Commerce Department outlined how the bans on WeChat and TikTok that President Trump had been threatening for months would work: Beginning today at midnight, US users would not be able to download the apps from Apple and Google’s app stores. A tentative agreement appeared to be reached Saturday for a new TikTok entity, TikTok Global, part of a partnership with Oracle and Walmart, so the Commerce Department postponed the TikTok ban until September 27th. “I have given the deal my blessing,” the president said. A group of WeChat users filed a lawsuit...
