    BRIGHTON have opened talks to extend Alexis Mac Allister’s contract. The Argentine, 22, has been a revelation since the turn of the year and one of the key factors behind the Seagulls' upturn in form. 2Brighton want to tie Alexis Mac Allister down to a new long-term contractCredit: AFP or licensors Albion are keen to reward their playmaker with improved terms. Mac Allister, who has two years left on present deal, joined the club in January 2019. He was initially loaned out to Argentinos Juniors and Boca Juniors back in his home country. The Argentina international returned to Brighton last January. But he saw his adaptation period to a new country and league hampered by the pandemic. Yet Mac Allister has become one of the first names on the team sheet for boss Graham Potter in the last few months. Mac Allister created Neal Maupay’s winner at Leeds in January....
    A white Andover student who was on the Peru trip with New York Times reporter Donald McNeil where he used the N-word claims he also told the group that racism was 'over', and that 'black Americans can get out of the ghetto if they want to'.  The trip was in 2019 and was part of the Times Journey program - a money making venture where seasoned Times reporters took people on guided educational tours in different parts of the world.  Sophie Shepherd was among the group who paid $5,000 per person for the educational trip with McNeil in Peru. It was called 'Public Health and Development in the Andes' and involved day strips, activities and stays in hostels. At the time, she was a student of Phillips Academy at Andover, a prestigious boarding school in Massachusetts, and was 17 at the time, having just completed her senior year.  Now, she...
    Forty-three Republican senators protected Donald Trump from accountability for inciting the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol when they voted to acquit in his second impeachment trial. They’re going to have a challenge protecting him—and maybe themselves—through the likely next phase of the response to the January 6 attack: an investigation by a bipartisan commission similar to the 9/11 commission. The question is how serious and how empowered such an investigation will be, and Democrats need to ensure that the answer is “very.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for such an investigation in early February, writing to House Democrats, “It is also clear that we will need to establish a 9/11-type Commission to examine and report upon the facts, causes and security relating to the terrorist mob attack on January 6.” Retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré is already leading a security review, but the question of protecting the U.S. Capitol as a physical building is different...
    (CNN)In early 2017, the rural community of Delphi, Indiana, was exactly as you might envision a small town -- a main street, a few local restaurants, and the close-knit homes of 14-year-old Liberty German and her good friend, 13-year-old Abigail Williams. Liberty German and Abigail Williams.But on February 13, 2017, when the two girls set out to hike a local trail on a day off from school, all that small-town charm was ripped away. When the teens failed to meet Libby's dad that afternoon for a ride home, a massive search began. Eighteen hours later, the bodies of Libby and Abby were found in the woods, not far from the abandoned railroad bridge they'd been photographing during their hike on the Delphi Historic Trails.Police believe the girls photographed their killerAbby posted a photo of the girls crossing the railroad bridge to Snapchat a short time before they were killed.Read MoreIt...

    When most people look out their windows in the morning, they likely aren’t expecting to be surprised by a chest freezer-sized box that’s feeding a 5G antenna, but that’s the exact experience some Houston residents have been having. Verizon has been installing the boxes as part of its 5G network rollout since at least 2019, and from the reporting done by the Houston Chronicle, it seems as if it’s been anything but smooth. The boxes are known as “ground fixtures,” and they supply power and data to 5G antennas that are placed on utility poles nearby. The ones gracing people’s front window views are being set up to build out Verizon’s 5G home internet service. It’s well-known at this point that, while millimeter-wave tech is blazing-fast, it also has terrible range. The solution to that is to blanket an area with antennas, and the equipment for that has to go...
    New York : He Leicester City was placed first in the Premier League table on Tuesday at the expense of a Chelsea that they beat 2-0, which does not raise its head and in which the figure of Frank Lampard as Technical Director is already in danger. The ‘Foxes’ come first, although with more games played than Manchester United and Manchester City after a splendid performance at the King Power Stadium in which they took advantage of an inoperative Chelsea. Very soon everything turned upside down for Chelsea, Leicester took the lead in the sixth minute when Ndidi hooked a shot in the front that slipped into the goal of Edouard Mendy, who was immobile, after touching the ball on the post. The Foxes are flying ???? pic.twitter.com/ambEEfTYRH – Premier League (@premierleague) January 19, 2021 Leicester tied up Chelsea at will and James Maddison, the sensation of Brendan...
    A Republican state legislator from Florida told "Outnumbered Overtime" Friday that he is preparing legislation that would force the state government to divest any shares it holds in Big Tech giants like Twitter, Facebook, and Apple. Rep. Randy Fine told host Harris Faulkner his legislation stems from the ongoing restrictions preventing conservative and Republican leaders from using prominent social media platforms. REP. RANDY FINE: I don’t like a world in which half of my constituents are being told that they can’t voice their views, because in a world where you can’t talk with your words, you are going to talk in other ways. I have asked the governor and our Cabinet to consider divesting from all of these companies, because I also think that they have made a terrible business decision. When you tell half of your customers you don’t want them, it turns out not very well for you. Video… Our goal in...
    Mets fans dreamed big once Steve Cohen took over their team. Why not? No one wins the lottery and envisions upgrading from one bedroom to two. They see the mansion or the penthouse. And, for the faithful, it surely felt like winning the lottery when Cohen’s wallet squeezed out the Wilpons. He demonstrated the power of deep pockets, especially in this no-spend environment, when the Mets traded for Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco. Most teams were out on trying for just Lindor because it meant adding $20 million-ish to this year’s payroll and at least determining what it would cost long term to keep the star shortstop beyond 2021. Most clubs were out on just Carlos Carrasco because the two years and $27 million still owed was more than he likely would have received had he been a free agent and cost no player return. The Mets obtained them both...

    Joe Biden and Democratic Party leaders are failing at their stated goal of unifying Americans, Sean Hannity told viewers Friday night.  The "Hannity" host mocked Biden's call for unity, pointing to the fact that the party he leads had spent four years making "unrelenting attacks" on President Trump and his administration. "Now ask yourself about Mr. Biden. When did Mr. 'I want to unite the nation' Biden ever speak out about all of the lies and the Russia conspiracy theories and the witch hunt conspiracy theories? When did he ever speak out about the language of the left? Never," Hannity said.  "After years of never-ending rage, hysteria, and outright lies, we are now supposed to believe he wants to bring us all together because he says so? His calls for unity ring hollow." VideoThe host recalled that during the 2020 presidential campaign, Biden remarked in a stump speech that he wanted to to take Trump "behind the gym." "So it's a serious question," the host continued. "Why would anyone...
    Kyle Zedaker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers The Bucs take on quarterback Kirk Cousins and his Minnesota Vikings this Sunday at 1 p.m. at Raymond James Stadium, a key matchup that will likely be the deciding factor in what seed the Bucs get as one of the Wild Card teams in the NFC. The Bucs are probably going to be without one of their “top” corners, Jamel Dean, as the former Auburn corner is doubtful with a groin injury, but the Bucs feel comfortable with sliding veteran backup Ross Cockrell into that position.  If they win this Sunday, they can try to claw their way back into that top wild card spot, currently held by the Seattle Seahawks at 8-4. The top wild card spot will get to face whatever awful team comes out of the NFC East (the Giants currently have the lead with a 5-7 record), making for...
    Cardi B attends the 2020 Pre-Grammy Gala in January. Jon Kopaloff/Getty Images Cardi B was recently named Billboard's Woman of the Year for 2020. In her new cover story, the "WAP" rapper doubled down on her use of the R-word. "Just the other day, I was getting chewed up because I said the R-word," she said. "Like, how you gonna cancel me for calling myself r-----ed?" "They want you to be Mother Teresa, they want you to put out music, and they want you to look a certain way," she continued. "It's like, "Y'all gotta chill — I'm just a regular-degular b----, man." Cardi B received backlash in October for posting a voice memo on Twitter, in which she calls herself "stupid and r-----ed."

    Jamal Adams has found himself a winning team, but the Seattle Seahawks safety revealed Tuesday that he battled depression in New York after feeling like his team didn’t "want to win.” The Jets traded Adams to the Seahawks after a long and public dispute about his contract during the offseason, but the two-time Pro-Bowler explained on the “All Things Covered” podcast that the biggest motivation in leaving was being alone in his desire to win.  BUCS’ TOM BRADY SITS DOWN WITH  JUM GRAY: ‘I OBSESS OVER’ PERFECTION "Bro, I fought depression in New York and I'm man enough to say it,” Adams said. “So many times I came home after a tough loss and just sat in my room in the dark -- no phone, no TV … (My dad) hated to see me like that.

    Actress Holly Robinson Peete says President Donald Trump called her the n-word over a decade ago during his time on Celebrity Apprentice. Peete shared the shocking revelation on SiriusXM Urban View’s The Karen Hunter Show on Tuesday recalling how she spent about a month with Trump on season three of the show in 2010 where she lost to singer Bret Michaels in the finale. The 21 Jump Street star revealed that Trump was 'kind of lovely' to her face but she was shocked to see a darker side where he allegedly used racial slurs. 'Shortly after the finale, rumors started going around that he had tossed out an n-word in referring to me. And I was like, "Huh?" And then when the producer told me when it happened during the finale, I remember the moment,' Peete said. 'I wasn’t in earshot, but I could see them deciding between me and...
    (CNN)Joe Biden won't be sworn in for another 64 days, but the President-elect is already under pressure from activist groups to bring progressive leaders into his administration -- and close its doors to establishment figures with cozy relationships to Wall Street, defense contractors and the fossil fuel industry.The pressure campaign has played out in public, with the release of open letters and lists of acceptable candidates for top Cabinet positions, via private calls with potential nominees, and on social media, where progressive groups have warned the incoming administration against reneging on Biden's promise to forge an aggressive new path in the fight against climate change.Top progressives are, for now, sounding a cautiously optimistic tone following the release of Biden's "agency review teams" and his quick decision to name longtime adviser Ron Klain, who has built bonds across ideological lines, as his White House chief of staff. But there are potential...
    Seth Meyers celebrated Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ victory on Monday night before brutality roasting the right-wing response to President Donald Trump’s loss — focusing on Fox News host Tucker Carlson.  Before addressing Fox News hosts and pundits and their immediate reactions to the election results, the host noted the festivities that occurred around the world this weekend. “You know you were a bad president when people were celebrating an old white centrist like he was the sunset at Burning Man,” Meyers joked. “Did [Biden] win an election or the World Cup? Did those people vote for Biden, or did they just pull down a statue of Saddam?” Meyers then pointed to those who were not as happy about Trump’s failed reelection bid, starting with Carlson. Last week, Carlson mocked Biden for being a “hologram” of the man he once was in the 1980s — quipping that he’s been “designed to mimic the behavior...

    Bradley Cortright October 25, 2020 0 Comments Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton thinks Republicans would not be too upset if President Donald Trump loses the 2020 presidential election.  In an interview with The New York Times Opinion podcast, “Sway,” Clinton told host Kara Swisher, “Most Republicans are going to want to close the page,” Axios reports. “They want to see him gone as much as we do, but they can’t say it publicly,” she added.  She also took a shot at how the president has handled the coronavirus pandemic and argued she would have handled it better, “I have no doubt, especially if it were me. I have no doubt. I mean, I was born for that.” She also said that she “can’t entertain the idea of him winning. … It would cause cognitive dissonance of a grave degree.” “[I]t makes me literally sick to my stomach to think that...
    By DAVID KLEPPER, Associated Press PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The email from a political action committee seemed harmless: if you support Joe Biden, it urged, click here to make sure you're registered to vote. But Harvard University graduate student Maya James did not click. Instead, she Googled the name of the soliciting PAC. It didn’t exist -- a clue the email was a phishing scam from swindlers trying to exploit the U.S. presidential election as a way to steal peoples' personal information. “There was not a trace of them,” James, 22, said. “It was a very inconspicuous email, but I noticed it used very emotional language, and that set off alarm bells.” She deleted the message, but related her experience on social media to warn others. American voters face an especially pivotal, polarized election this year, and scammers here and abroad are taking notice — posing as fundraisers and pollsters,...
    “If you couldn’t figure it out last night they want to pack the Supreme Court,” Mike Pence told a crowd of supporters in Nevada the morning after his debate with Sen. Kamala Harris of California. “Some people think we did all right,” the vice president said at a rally in Boulder City. He praised Judge Amy Coney Barrett, President Trump's nominee to fill the Supreme Court seat left vacant after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, noting she hails from his home state of Indiana. He called the circuit court judge a “principled conservative with an inspiring personal story… she comes from the Heartland.” On Wednesday night Pence hammered vice presidential nominee Harris over whether a Biden administration would try to pack the Supreme Court if Republicans “get their way” and confirm Barrett to the Supreme Court. Pence said the “American people really deserve an answer” on court-packing after Democratic nominee Joe Biden...

    (CBS)- Lawrence Guy was recognized as one of the Patriots leaders when he was named a team captain entering this season. As he leads the team on the field, he’s continuing to work to be a leader for local kids off it as well. Last week, Guy hosted his 9th Back to School event, joining forces with Crossroads in surprising 150 underprivileged students between the ages of 14 and 18 in the area with school supplies they need to maintain as much normalcy as they can in what is a different school year. The event was different this year of course, going virtual due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but Guy navigated around that by holding a Zoom call with all of the kids opening the floor for their questions and providing advice to help them feel comfortable in what is an uncertain year.

    During an interview that aired on Fox Business Network’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight” on Thursday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) responded to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s decision to back Democrats in specific races, which he rejected and called “hypocrisy.” “I will tell you this,” he said. “I don’t want the U.S. Chamber’s endorsement because they have sold out. You listen to your local chambers — those small businesses when I used to own a business. You had Oklahoma, the city of Oklahoma, their endorsement. They wanted to endorse Stephanie Bice, not Kendra Horn, that’s sitting and backing Pelosi or the Green New Deal or the others. I mean, it is just exactly what Nancy Pelosi did.

    Amanda Marcotte August 28, 2020 4:30PM (UTC) If there was one major takeaway from this week's Republican National Convention, it's that conservatives live in mortal terror of "cancel culture," their shiny new term for what they used to call "political correctness". Even though Donald Trump controls the White House, conservatives control the courts and Republicans control the Senate, speaker after speaker insisted that the real power in this country belongs to a shadowy liberal elite with all-encompassing powers of censorship.  "The goal of cancel culture is to make decent Americans live in fear of being fired, expelled, shamed, humiliated and driven from society as we know it," pronounced Donald Trump during his interminable acceptance speech on Thursday night. "The far left wants to coerce you into saying what you know to be FALSE, and scare you out of saying what you know to be TRUE." : "We want a culture where differences of opinion and debate...
    The pandemic isn’t the real reason why California’s firefighting force is spread so thin this year, some formerly incarcerated firefighters and advocates tell The News Brig. Formerly incarcerated firefighters who want to keep working have been locked out of careers in firefighting because of their criminal records. Some people coming out of prison might be able to qualify for seasonal jobs fighting wildland fires, but that’s often low-paid, temporary work. Bills aimed at removing barriers so that people can have a career after incarceration have yet to pass. Incarcerated firefighters have made headlines this month as they battle some of the state’s biggest infernos ever and return to prisons where the novel coronavirus has spread out of control. More than 1,300 incarcerated firefighters have been on the front lines of recent blazes. There would have been hundreds more had the state not decided to release thousands of people in prisons...
    Tuesday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) accused the Democrats of wanting to create “chaos and confusion” in the 2020 presidential election by going after the management of the U.S. Postal Service. Jordan told Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria” Democrats want the chaos because they know President Donald Trump is going to win again, but they want to keep counting ballots after Election Day to get him out of the White House. “The Democrats want this chaos and confusion because I believe, and I’m convinced, they know President Trump is going to win on Election Day, but they want to keep counting ballots after Election Day,” Jordan proclaimed. “So, that’s what this is really about. They want to send out as many live ballots, mail out as many live ballots as they can around this country, and then be counting … after election night’s over. So, that’s what this is about....
    Your nightly guide to racism at the Republican National Convention. Tonight was the “I’m not racist, and my Black friend says so” portion of the RNC, featuring speeches from Tim Scott and Herschel Walker, among others, and a lot of predictable talk about “opportunity zones” and the Democratic “plantation.” For the hard stuff, we turn to the undercard. Here’s Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis “gun couple” who famously mounted an armed defense of their topiary from Black Lives Matters protesters: Check out Patricia, sounding a dogwhistle immediately discernible to suburban right-wingers (many of them Democrats in California!): They are not satisfied with spreading the chaos and violence into our communities. They want to abolish the suburbs all together by ending single-family home zoning. This forced rezoning would bring crime, lawlessness, and low-quality apartments into now-thriving suburban neighborhoods. President Trump smartly ended this government overreach, but Joe Biden...
    Famous TV Hosts and Their Sidekicks: Ellen DeGeneres and tWitch, More The Property Line: Don’t Let New Fee Stop You From Refinancing Giannis and the Bucks are exactly where they dont want to be The Milwaukee Bucks’ start to the unconventional playoffs picked up right where it left off last May, when their road to the NBA Finals was hit with an international detour in Canada, as they lost their moxie at the border and never found it. That moxie again failed to resurface Tuesday in the NBA’s Disney bubble, resulting in the Orlando Magic rolling in Game 1 of their first-round series against the team with the best record in the NBA. It’s also worth noting the Magic shocked the Toronto Raptors in last year’s playoff opener before the Raptors righted themselves and became champions. The Bucks, who were 14-points favorites in Game 1, are hoping for a...
    Left-wing feminist groups such as Planned Parenthood, NARAL, Times Up, and Emily’s List have sent urgent notices to media outlets, warning them that Joe Biden’s female running mate is likely to be subjected to “sexist” and “racist” attacks. “A woman VP candidate, possibly a Black or Brown woman candidate, requires the same kind of internal consideration about systemic inequality as you undertook earlier this year,” the abortion rights supporters wrote to media heads, as NBC News reported. The coalition leaders include Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, NARAL President Ilyse Hogue, Planned Parenthood CEO Alexis McGill Johnson, Former Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards, who now heads Supermajority, and Democrat strategist Hilary Rosen.

    The blast that shook the Lebanese capital Beirut on Tuesday evening may have been the last straw for the people of the city. Beirut, once known as the Paris of the Middle East, was a vibrant and elegant city for much of the 20th century. Its people are known for their education and resilience. But over the past 50 years, they sustained a civil war, the rise of the militant group Hezbollah, and most recently the Syrian refugee crisis. The government is notorious for corruption. Then came Tuesday's massive explosion, which destroyed much of its port and damaged many of the city's iconic and historic neighborhoods, as well as residential buildings, hospitals and businesses. About a quarter of a million people lost their homes. Even before the blast, however, the country of 6 million was suffering through an economic recession. Banks limited withdrawals to $200 per week — at most. Get...
    President Donald Trump accused Democrats of using the coronavirus as an excuse to shutter churches and said he was looking at ways to reverse the closures by deeming them “essential” business. “I think, and I’m recommending it, you open the churches,” the president said in an interview with EWTN this week, though he said it was “up to the governors.” “They’ll spread, they’ll be socially spread, they’ll have masks and they’ll do what they have to do, you know, the hygiene and everything else that we know,” he added. “We want to open our churches. We want to open our schools. And everybody wants to be safe. They know what to do. They’ll stay away. And, you know, we’ll be the same way. Maybe you’ll have an extra service or two or three.” Some states — most notably California — have continued to limit religious gatherings in the wake...
    A line of veterans oppose the use of federal agents at the Mark O. Hatfield federal courthouse in Portland on July 24, 2020. John Rudoff/Anadolu Agency via Getty Images CNN and ProPublica reviewed conditions-of-release documents of multiple people recently arrested in Portland on protest-related charges. The outlets found that many had to promise not to attend future demonstrations to get out of jail. CNN identified nine cases, and ProPublica 12, where they were made to agree to those terms in order to be released. It's not clear whether some of those cases overlap. One condition of release document, cited by ProPublica, says: "Defendant may not attend any other protests, rallies, assemblies or public gathering in the state of Oregon."  Legal experts told the outlets the conditions violate the first amendment right to free assembly of those detained.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    A violent mob set fire to a justice center construction site in Seattle, Washington, reports say. The group of rioters also set fire to a local Starbucks, which is housed on the ground floor of an apartment building. What are the details?KIRO-TV reported that "thousands of people" peacefully gathered in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood on Saturday morning in a demonstration of solidarity with Black Lives Matter protests in Portland. The tenor of the protest quickly change, and began to spiral out of control by afternoon. Angry protesters, bent on destruction, reportedly set to a construction site at the King County Youth Service Center/Judge Patricia H. Clark Children and Family Justice Center by Saturday evening. In a statement, the Seattle Police Department said, "Approximately a dozen people ... entered a construction site at the facility, set fire to portable trailers and other equipment, and broke out...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — The name Karen has turned into a slang word describing women who lash out for no good reason, asking to talk to managers or even calling police. The behavior that begets the nickname is unacceptable, but what if your name really is Karen? Some real Karens tell CBS 2 Morning Insider Tim McNicholas it’s a trend that they hope dies out soon. Her name is Lisa Alexander, but people online dubbed her Karen after she called the cops on a Filipino man for painting Black Lives Matter on his own property. Then there’s Amy Cooper, dubbed Central Park Karen after infamously calling the police on a black birdwatcher who asked her to leash her dog. “There are words for that, and it’s not Karen,” said Karen Burris. Burris agreed people who act like that should be called out, but they shouldn’t be called Karens. “Call them privileged....
    Tuesday on MSNBC, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) called the Texas GOP a “death cult” who wants “African-Americans” and “Latinos” to do the dying. O’Rourke said, “You know, the United States has been hit hard by COVID. Texas, arguably, harder than almost any other state right now, perhaps with the exception of Florida and Arizona, and within Texas, the Rio Grande Valley, and particularly Hidalgo County, is just getting the stuffing knocked out of it. They’re running out of beds and space in their hospitals and clinics. They’re running out of nurses and doctors to take care of the patients. It’s so bad that some ambulances are waiting up to ten hours in order to discharge the patients that they picked up because there is no bed there to receive them. There’s no longer space in the morgues, in the funeral homes, so they’re stacking the bodies in refrigerated trucks...
    I’ll be the first one to admit that I was shocked on election night in 2016. As I told my friends in the lead-up to that fateful moment, I didn’t think that the country that elected Barack Obama would follow up by electing Donald Trump. Boy was I wrong! As a result, the hardest thing for me to deal with emotionally was the loss of faith in my fellow citizens. Over the course of the next few years, we learned that one of the few things Trump said that wasn’t a lie was when he bragged that he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue in broad daylight and his supporters wouldn’t abandon him. It has been mind-numbing to watch them stick with him no matter what he said or how badly he screwed things up. But with all of the caveats about how the 2020 election is still a little more...
    Speculation that President Trump may pull a Lyndon Johnson and decline to seek a second term is beginning to percolate. To understand why, let’s turn to a guy best known for making drunk cable news appearances: “Under the current trajectory, President Trump is on the precipice of one of the worst electoral defeats in modern presidential elections and the worst historically for an incumbent president,” said former Trump political adviser Sam Nunberg, who remains a supporter. Nunberg pointed to national polls released by CNBC and New York Times/Siena over the past week showing Trump receiving below 40 percent against Biden. If Trump’s numbers erode to 35 percentage points over the next two weeks, Nunberg added, “He’s going to be facing realistically a 400-plus electoral vote loss and the president would need to strongly reconsider whether he wants to continue to run as the Republican presidential nominee.” Recent surveys have Joe Biden leading by one point in Texas and pulling ahead in...

    Sean Hannity opened Monday's edition of "Hannity" by asserting that U.S. cities are rapidly deteriorating and their Democratic leaders are clueless about how to fix it. "Crime is spiraling out of control," the "Hannity" host said. "Violent crime is up by 30 percent in the past three years. "But that didn't stop the Democratic mayor of Seattle, Jenny Durkan, from, well, ceding six city blocks [in] the main part of Seattle to literally a collection of anarchists, radicals, socialists and other so-called protesters," he went on. "She let them take over parts of an entire city, including a police precinct." Just before Hannity went on the air Monday, Durkan announced that Seattle authorities will move to end the police-free zone known as the "Capitol Hill Organized Protest," or "CHOP," after two weekend shootings which left a 19-year-old man dead and two others wounded. Video"Mayor Durkan, your wind-down is [too little, too late] and we are going to see the same thing in nearly every major liberal city," Hannity warned. "We must, for the safety and security of...

    Things are looking up at a waterfront resort in southern Maryland, as coronavirus restrictions continue to ease and businesses work recovers. The Rod ‘N’ Reel Resort sits on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Chesapeake Beach, and includes a hotel, restaurants and a marina. “We’re seeing people that want to get out, and they want to enjoy the sun, they want to enjoy dining and they want to get back to feeling normal,” Chief Operating Officer Mark Giangiulio said. When virus-related shutdowns were first ordered in March, the resort quickly began offering carry-out meals. It opened outdoor dining at 50% capacity as soon as the state allowed two weeks ago, and it has been popular. On Friday, it added live outdoor music and limited indoor dining. The hotel was sold out last weekend, Giangiulio said, and this weekend it is busy with Friday and Saturday being completely booked....
    WEST LOOP — As Chicago moves into phase three of its cautious reopening plan after the coronavirus pandemic, bar owners say they are being left behind. In what was described as a “lifeline” to the beleaguered industry, the Committee on License and Consumer Protection on Monday advanced an ordinance that would allow for the delivery and pickup of cocktails from bars and restaurants in a sealed container.

But some in the industry are saying it’s not enough to keep them in business — especially as booze now flows freely on restaurant patios across the city. While bars and breweries in the rest of the state can open, Mayor Lori Lightfoot has not allowed Chicago bars to open unless they serve food. ...
