    I see that people are apoplectic on Twitter about the Democrats “caving” on witnesses after Lindsey Graham and a handful of other Republicans abruptly called their bluff and voted to allow them. But people shouldn’t be upset. That was the right move for Democrats for two reasons. First, witnesses or no witnesses, this is a foreordained reality show, so let’s just get on with it and get it ended. And second, to the extent that there is a hunger to get to the bottom of everything that happened on Jan. 6, and I hope that extent is considerable across the nation, there is a far better venue for doing so than an impeachment trial.

    WASHINGTON -- Dozens of civil rights and advocacy organizations are calling on the Biden administration to immediately halt federal executions after an unprecedented run of capital punishment under President Donald Trump and to commute the sentences of inmates on federal death row.The organizations, including the American Civil Liberties Union, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights and 80 others, sent a letter to President Joe Biden on Tuesday morning, urging that he act immediately "on your promise of ensuring equality, equity, and justice in our criminal legal system."Biden has been systematically undoing many Trump administration policies on climate, immigration and ethics rules. Although he is against the death penalty and has said he will work to end its use, Biden has not commented on what he will do with Trump's unprecedented push for the federal death penalty.

    By MATTHEW LEE, AP Diplomatic Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration on Sunday warned Yemen’s Houthi rebels against ongoing attacks against civilians just 48 hours after moving to strike the group from a terrorism blacklist. The State Department called on the Iran-backed rebel group to immediately stop attacks on civilians and new military operations in Yemen. The demand came only two days after the administration notified Congress that it would remove the Houthis from its list of “foreign terrorist organizations," a designation that comes with severe U.S. sanctions. It also came just three days after President Joe Biden ordered an end to U.S. support for the Saudi-led offensive military operations against the rebels. “As the president is taking steps to end the war in Yemen and Saudi Arabia has endorsed a negotiated settlement, the United States is deeply troubled by continued Houthi attacks,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said...

Ayanna Pressley has called on the country "to address the evil and scourge that is White supremacy," one month after pro-Donald Trump rioters stormed the US Capitol."One of the images that I'm haunted by is the Black custodial staff cleaning up the mess left by that violent White supremacist mob," the Massachusetts Democrat told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" Sunday, reflecting on her experience on Capitol Hill during the deadly siege on January 6. "That is a metaphor for America. We have been cleaning up after violent, White supremacist mobs for generations and it must end."Flags, signs and symbols of racist, White supremacist and extremist groups were displayed along with Trump 2020 banners and American flags during the insurrection last month.

Thus, I believe the rest of these soldiers should also go home to their families and civilian jobs," he continued. Thousands of guard members were deployed following the Jan. 6 riot, which saw a mob of demonstrators clash with law enforcement and eventually breach the Capitol in an attempt to interrupt the certification of President Biden's election victory. Five people died in the siege, including one law enforcement officer. The...

    CHELSEA will reportedly end their interest in Declan Rice following Frank Lampard’s exit. The club legend was sacked by Roman Abramovich on Monday after a dismal run of results left Chelsea 11 points off top in the Premier League. 1Chelsea are no longer interested in West Ham's Declan Rice after sacking Frank LampardCredit: Reuters Thomas Tuchel is now expected to take charge ahead of tomorrow’s game with Wolves. And the German looks set to change things up, with some fringe players ready to come in from the cold. There could even be a tactical shift to a back three as Chelsea look to salvage their top four hopes. And Tuchel is sure to also want different transfer targets to his predecessor. Rice was top of Lampard’s wishlist last summer as Chelsea spent over £220million on the likes of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz. But West Ham’s refusal to budge on...
    Frederic J. Brown | AFP | Getty Images What a long year of Covid it's been. Twelve months after the first case was confirmed in the U.S. in January 2020, American life and family finances continue to look different than they did pre-pandemic. While wealthier households — mostly college-educated and White — have largely rebounded from the financial shock, pain points that remain elsewhere in the economy suggest a rocky road ahead, according to a report from the National Conference on Citizenship. "Disasters have a very long tail," said Allison Plyer, chief demographer for The Data Center of Southeast Louisiana and one of the report's authors. "This one is likely to have a very long recovery."

    Former New York Times freelance editor Lauren Wolfe shot back at the paper's claim that she was not dismissed solely because of a pro-Joe Biden tweet last week, saying the Times was smearing her reputation. Wolfe, who came under fire for saying she had "chills" over Biden's plane landing the day before his inauguration, told the Washington Post that the tweet was the only reason she was dismissed. "Every day, I was scared I was going to do something wrong. So, whatever they’re implying, it’s a shot at my reputation, which I’ve worked very carefully to build," she told the Post's Erik Wemple.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Javon Hagon had a great response to Skip Bayless after making the Super Bowl. Prior to the Bucs beating the Packers in the NFC title game, Bayless tweeted, “Antoine Winfield Jr. has been replaced on the active roster by Javon Hagan, an undrafted rookie from Ohio off the practice squad. Not from THE Ohio State. Just Ohio.

    Dec 19, 2020; Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA; Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur calls a play in the fourth quarter during the game against the Carolina Panthers at Lambeau Field. Mandatory Credit: Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports The Green Bay Packers lost in heartbreaking fashion to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Here are four individuals who didn’t strengthen their job security. The Green Bay Packers were the top seed in the NFC this season and were coming off a dominant win over the Los Angeles Rams and their league-best defense in the Divisional Round. With Rodgers putting up video game numbers this season, you’d think the Packers would have the upperhand against the fifth-seed Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That wasn’t the case, as the Packers ended up on the losing end 31-26 to fall just short of the Super Bowl for the second consecutive season. Just like last year when they were...
    The message for Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski remained the same two years later: They "can't be stopped."

SUPER BOWL LV TIME, DATE AND EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE GAME Brady finished the game 20-for-36 with 280 passing yards, three touchdown passes and three interceptions.

    Getty Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen tries to change the play at the line of scrimmage during their AFC Championship against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Buffalo Bills put together a special season this year. They won their first AFC East title in 25 years, they battled their way to the AFC Championship for the first time since 1993 and they came within a win of setting a new franchise record for wins in a season. Bills quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs also rewrote the Bills single-season record book. But, that all came to an end on Sunday as they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 38-24 in the AFC Championship.

    Tom Brady is back in the Super Bowl. Back where he belongs. The 43-year-old quarterback survived an epic showdown with Aaron Rodgers, the 37-year-old gunslinger trying and ultimately failing to keep Brady from reaching yet another Super Bowl as the Buccaneers held on for a 31-26 win Sunday. Brady threw three touchdown passes to give the Buccaneers a 28-10 lead early in the third quarter then, shockingly, ended three consecutive offensive series in the second half with interceptions to help Rodgers and the Packers crawl back in the game. At the finish, it was Brady and the Bucs with the ball, tasked with playing keep-away from Rodgers to end the game. Brady took over with 2:05 remaining — after the Packers kicked a short field goal on fourth-and-goal when they were down by eight points — and did the rest, securing a pulsating victory in the NFC Championship game at...

    In the 43 years since her body was discovered in the seedy hotel room she shared with Sex Pistols punk Sid Vicious, countless questions and theories have swirled around the death of 20-year-old Nancy Spungen. Now a new six-part series about the infamous rockers from director Danny Boyle is set to revive interest in the notorious case, which ended with Vicious being charged with his girlfriend’s murder – but dying of a heroin overdose before it came to court. The Oscar-winner may not be the first to address the mystery, but there remains one detail that is often overlooked by those telling the story of the band that excited and revulsed 1970s Britain in equal measure: a letter that Vicious wrote to Nancy’s grieving mother just a few weeks after her killing. Deborah Spungen, a middle-class mum from an affluent suburb of Philadelphia, expected to be upset by the correspondence...

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald is retiring. The 30-year-old announced the decision Friday, less than two weeks after his eighth season came to an end when the AFC North champion Steelers were upset by Cleveland in the opening round of the playoffs. McDonald caught 181 passes for 2,036 yards and 15 touchdowns in his career, spending four seasons each with San Francisco and Pittsburgh. The 49ers selected him in the second round of the 2013 draft then traded him to Pittsburgh on the eve of the 2017 season. McDonald was the Steelers’ nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 2020 for his work with Convoy of Hope. The group has provided nonperishable food, PPE and cleaning supplies for more than 1,000 families in western Pennsylvania during the COVID-19 pandemic. “My family and I are so grateful for everything NFL football has provided...
