    Jack Davis, The Western Journal February 28, 2021 0 Comments House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California said Saturday that he believes Republicans will regain control of the House of Representatives in 2022. McCarthy made his comment during a discussion at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida. “We’re going to get the majority back, we’re five seats away!

    MTV "Teen Mom OG" star Ryan Edwards had a sarcastic response when talking about his relationship with Bentley, the son he shares with ex-girlfriend Maci Bookout. Teen Mom OG star Ryan Edwards made a sardonic comment when talking about his relationship with Bentley, the son he shares with ex-girlfriend Maci Bookout. The 12-year-old has been distancing from his father, asking Maci to go to therapy with Ryan because he feels neglected by his father. Since his 2-year-old brother’s birthday was coming up, Ryan and his family wanted to invite Bentley to the party, but they weren’t sure if he was going to come. Since Ryan and Maci aren’t on the best of terms, Ryan’s mother Jen Edwards communicates with Maci.

    Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., defended his vote to advance a Democratic budget resolution Tuesday that would lay the groundwork for President Biden’s $1.9T COVID relief package in the Senate, but maintained that he would not support the final legislation unless Congress could make it "work in a bipartisan way." Manchin, a moderate with a reputation for working across party lines, is believed to be the key vote who could advance or block his colleagues' attempts to pass the Biden proposal via budget reconciliation. With the Senate split 50-50, Democrats have little margin for error. "What I have told everybody, I made it very clear, from the President of the United States to all of my colleagues, we're gonna make this work in a bipartisan way," Manchin told "Special Report" host Bret Baier.  "My friends on the other side are going to have input, and we are going to do something we agree on," the senator added.

Cheyenne and Zach gathered a group of friends for the gender reveal party, where they used an airplane to help make their announcement. Everyone went outside and looked up at the sky, which was colored with bright blue smoke after the plane passed by. The crowd cheered set off fireworks of their own that also let out blue smoke.

    The Cincinnati Bearcats last played football on Nov. 21, and it is astonishing how much worse they’ve gotten since. After they won that game, 36-33 over the 6-3 UCF Golden Knights, the Bearcats were ranked No. 7 by the CFP committee. A week ago, they dropped to eighth. Now, after an apparently disastrous week of practice, they have plunged to No. 9. What did Cincinnati do to anger the committee overlords? It’s probably that the Bearcats performed too well. The whole “Icarus” concept, flying too close to the powers while lacking Power 5 cred. MORE: How should college football reform and expand its playoff? It seems the committee’s initial No. 7 ranking for Cincinnati was designed to inspire the college football media to declare that the unbeaten Bearcats had a chance, that there was a legitimacy to this enterprise after all. Then, when the members began to encounter the possibility...
    LONDON (AP) — Scotland has unanimously passed legislation that will make period products freely available to all women, which according to campaigners makes it the first country to do so. Lawmakers in the Scottish Parliament unanimously approved a bill late Tuesday that will require local authorities to provide free access to items such as tampons and sanitary pads. Monica Lennon, a lawmaker from the opposition Labour Party, had campaigned against so-called period poverty since 2016, and described the legislation as “practical and progressive" especially during the coronavirus pandemic. “Periods don’t stop for pandemics and the work to improve access to essential tampons, pads and reusables has never been more important," she said. “On the issue of period dignity, I am beyond proud that Scotland is leading the way and we have moved at a fast pace in a short space of time," she said.

    With two weeks’ distance, we can see that voters delivered a pretty depressing message overall. Yes, they said, we’re exhausted by Donald Trump, and we want rid of him. But we don’t want to give the Democrats the run of the place. This was the unmistakable verdict of the swing voters who decided the election. They want divided government. They just don’t trust either party enough to give them full control. So there was a lot of ticket-splitting in Maine, where people voted for Joe Biden and Susan Collins, while in other states that don’t have Maine’s history of persnickety independence, a lot of people voted for Biden and then skipped the Senate altogether (Cal Cunningham in North Carolina got around 110,000 fewer votes than Biden). Democrats are reckoning with this dynamic nationally, and too publicly for my taste, in the aftermath of Joe Biden’s win and the party’s underwhelming...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Hundreds of Halloween revelers gathered at two warehouse parties this weekend in the city, creating a scary scene from a public health perspective. The New York City Sheriff says nearly 400 people in costume crammed into a Williamsburg, Brooklyn warehouse just past midnight on Saturday. There was a DJ and only some wore face masks as alcohol was served at three different walkup bars. Later Saturday night it was like déjà vu at a warehouse on Seabury Avenue in the Bronx. Sheriff’s deputies counted nearly 600 people dancing. Some were captured on video around the DJ area without masks. Twenty people were arrested and containers of alcohol were carted away as the location didn’t have a proper liquor license. Tens of thousands of dollars in fines were handed out as well. “Stupid people. What can I say? Nothing. Just stupid,” Upper West Side resident Galina Gvozdvia...
    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has been mercilessly mocked for spending the majority of his bid in his basement. But in the closing week of the 2020 campaigns, he’s venturing deep into so-called reach states, including Iowa. Iowa is widely considered to be a toss-up contest in this cycle’s race for the White House. But while the polls are close, Trump may have a structural advantage thanks to Iowa’s “No Party” voters, the state’s term for independents. Trump dominated 2016 Democratic standard-bearer Hillary Clinton in Iowa, claiming the state’s six electoral votes by almost 10 percentage points. Four years later, Biden has an average lead of less than a point, a significant dip in support, according to RealClearPolitics. Despite its conservative reputation, Iowa has historically leaned Democratic at the presidential level. Drake University political science professor Dennis Goldford explained that Iowa had supported a Democratic nominee every cycle between 1988...
    Through the first three games of the 2020 NFL season, Republican voters are noticeably absent, according to data from ratings firm Comscore.NFL ratings are down across the board slightly, but when the company broke down households by political affiliation, Republicans emerged as a sports hold-out.In the first three weeks of the season, the ratings in Republican households dropped 11%, 17% and 8%.In Democrat households, views were up 1% in week one, down 4% in week two and up 1% in week three."These significant viewership changes reinforce the importance of having advanced audience information because media buyers and sellers have to adapt quickly when cultural forces reshape consumer behavior," said Comscore Chief Revenue Officer Carol Hinnant in a news release.The ratings data align with a recent CBS News/YouGov poll that shows 77% of Republicans said that kneeling during the national anthem of an NFL game is unacceptable. Just 12% of Democrats...
    If he loses, Republicans will pretend he never existed. If he wins, they'll do whatever he tells them to do. While the Republican Party, now stripped of everything but con men and fascist sycophants, drones on about What The Constitution Means To Them in virus-infected Senate hearings, they have closed their ears and pretended, to a person, not to notice Donald Trump going full authoritarian by flat-out demanding the arrest of his political enemies. You know, on Twitter. As one does. The New York Times has taken notice, at least, providing an assortment of historians and past officials to warn in very polite terms that this is absolutely batshit crazy, that Trump is absolutely performing as an authoritarian, and that we absolutely are going down a dangerous road. No, it is not normal that Trump is getting visibly impatient with his allied attorney general, William Barr, for not producing the...
    Washington (CNN)Joe Biden is making a clear attempt to appeal to disaffected Republicans and independent voters in the final weeks of the election, promising he'd be a president that would work hard not just for those who support him, but also for those who do not. Campaigning on Saturday evening in Pennsylvania's Erie County, which President Donald Trump won narrowly in 2016, Biden said, "I'm running as a proud Democrat, but I am going to govern as an American president," before touting the endorsement of former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, a Republican who served as Homeland Security secretary under President George W. Bush. "We may not agree on everything," Biden said of Ridge. "But we agree on this: this is a moment to put country above party," he said, employing a line popularly used by conservative voters who have thrown their support behind the Democratic nominee. Biden's remarks focused heavily...
    Blair Sagan makes art out of trash and has an uncanny ability to turn the worst situations into something positive. From April to August, the non-binary artist, activist and graphic designer lived at Night Window, a new artist housing project, in a motel room converted into an $800-a-month live-work studio apartment at 8400 East Colfax Avenue. Upon moving in, Sagan (who uses "they" pronouns), thought it would be a semi-collective space where creatives could come together and build community. Instead, they found the residents were isolated from each other. "I moved in here thinking this was a dream, and I wanted to start something similar and learn what they're doing right and wrong," says Sagan. "It turned into a nightmare pretty quickly."Related Stories Denver Artists Are Being Priced Out. Is This Colfax Motel a Fix?

    Sen. Willard Mitt Romney, the Republican from Utah who broke ranks with Republicans to vote to convict Donald Trump on one of the articles of impeachment, abuse of power, has snapped back into line when it matters most: a Trump Supreme Court nominee. He says his decision isn’t based on “a subjective test of ‘fairness’ which, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder,” but on “the Constitution and precedent.” And then makes up some real bullshit on precedent: “The historical precedent of election year nominations is that the Senate generally does not confirm an opposing party’s nominee but does confirm a nominee of its own.” Except for when a Democratic Senate confirmed Ronald Reagan’s nominee, Anthony Kennedy, in 1988. “The historical precedent of election year nominations is that the Senate generally does not confirm an opposing party’s nominee but does confirm a nominee of its own,” he says. Historical precedent set by Mitch McConnell in 2016...

    ROME (AP) — Italy’s center-right parties made inroads in bastions of the left, but final results from regional elections Tuesday showed the left-of-center Democratic Party held on, giving stability for now to its partnership with the 5-Star Movement in the ruling national coalition. The right-wing Brothers of Italy party did take the governorship of Le Marche, a longtime center-left stronghold on Italy’s Adriatic coast, giving the party known for its conservative, anti-migration stance a key regional win. The party’s candidate, Francesco Acquaroli, ran with the backing of other center-right parties. The biggest center-right party, the League, also made a strong showing in traditionally left-leaning Tuscany with 40% of the vote. But Democratic candidate Eugenio Giani held off what would have been a devastating defeat by winning 48.6%, final results showed. The center-left also kept southern Puglia from flipping to the right. The head of the Democratic Party, Nicola Zingaretti,...
    Democratic Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones recited a list of President Donald Trump’s accomplishments for the black community during his Monday night speech at the Republican National Convention. The Georgia lawmaker, who made headlines and drew criticism from the left earlier this year for declaring his support for Trump, used the theme “Donald Trump did that” as he went from issues like criminal justice reform to gains in black unemployment. WATCH: “When President Trump sought to earn the black vote, the Democratic Party leaders went crazy,” Jones began. “Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer literally started wearing kente cloths around the U.S. Capitol, as if pandering were enough to keep us satisfied. Let me tell you why I’m supporting our president.” After recalling his own history of growing up in the South, Jones touted Trump’s funding of Historic Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and support of school choice, then turned...

    Kaiser Health News August 23, 2020 9:00AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Kaiser Health News. The third night of the Democratic National Convention was all about one thing: Sen. Kamala Harris of California becoming the first Black and Indian American woman to accept a major political party's vice presidential nomination. But key Democratic criticisms — many rooted in health care issues and the COVID-19 pandemic — were repeated throughout the evening. : Hillary Clinton took an early swipe at President Donald Trump's coronavirus response, describing how he has fallen short despite coming in "with so much set up for him," such as "plans for managing crises — including a pandemic." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reupped another criticism of Trump and his fellow Republicans: "Instead of crushing the virus, they're trying to crush the Affordable Care Act and its preexisting conditions benefit," she said. During her acceptance speech, Harris...
    Kanye West has millions of fans around the world. But before this month, no one knew just how beloved he was by Wisconsin Republicans. When the hip-hop superstar—who has been gathering signatures to get on the 2020 presidential ballot as an independent in several states—submitted his nominating papers in Wisconsin, they were turned in by the former general counsel for the state Republican party. Turns out that the attorney, Lane Ruhland, has another important client: She’s representing President Trump’s re-election campaign in a lawsuit against a TV station in northern Wisconsin. It’s not pretty. The Washington Post reported that Republican operatives are pursuing the same tactic in at least four other states. Indeed, both parties—Democrats and Republicans, even Russian operatives in 2016—have a sordid, manipulative history of weaponizing third party candidates and meddling in the other side’s crowded primaries. Many partisans have embraced, sometimes gleefully, an “anything goes” philosophy that’s...

    Press Release from the Georgia Bureau of Investigations Tattnall County, GA (August 4, 2020) – On Tuesday, August 4, 2020, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) arrested Elijah Harston King, age 19, for aggravated battery.   Reece Steven Cole, age 35, was arrested the previous day for aggravated battery as well.  Both King and Cole were booked into the Tattnall County Sheriff’s Office. On Sunday, July 26, 2020, the GBI was requested by the Tattnall County Sheriff’s Office to assist with an aggravated battery investigation. Preliminary information reveals that on Sunday, July 26, 2020, between midnight and 2:00 a.m., Christopher Bailey Swope was located at 88 Carters Court in Reidsville, Tattnall County, Georgia where he was attacked and severely beaten by Reece Cole, the owner of the residence, and Elijah King.

    Joe Biden’s campaign says it wants to flip Texas.  To do that, they have put nominal ad money into the state and publicly emphasized the importance of it. But up through this week, their main digital organizing tool for getting volunteers coordinated there was being hampered by what was chalked up as either a technical mistake or an operational work-in-progress.  Searches for campaign-sanctioned events through the Biden online organizing page in major areas like Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, El Paso, Plano, Corpus Christi, and Lubbock all came up empty this week, with some results directing individuals to virtual events in nearby states like Arkansas.  The issue arose between the Biden campaign and the Texas Democratic Party over which so-called “Mobilize” dashboard—a third party online search tool used by the Biden campaign—should be employed, the state party said. While there were and are virtual events being planned by the Texas Democratic...
    Three in five Americans are boosting their moods with indoor dance parties and karaoke sessions after so much time at home, according to a new poll.

    Now months into the US coronavirus outbreak, safety precautions have become routine: stand 6ft (2m) apart, wear a mask, and wash your hands. But still, certain 'superspreader' events - birthday parties, bar nights, and even choir practice - seem to be the culprits in an outsized number of Covid-19 infections. So how can one night out, or a single infected person, lead to dozens of cases? We asked Dr Abraar Karan, a physician and public health researcher at Harvard Medical School, to look at three different cases since the US outbreak began to understand how some events can shift from low to high risk, and how to avoid attending a superspreader event yourself. First, what is a superspreader? At a superspreading event, the number of cases transmitted will be disproportionately high compared to general transmission, Dr Karan says. And the risk of these superspreading events may balloon in...
    Jacksonville city officials announced Monday they are issuing a mandate that face coverings must be worn at all indoor locations and events, paving the way for a clash with President Donald Trump. 'At 5 p.m. today, the City of Jacksonville will be adopting a mandatory mask requirement for public & indoor locations, and in other situations where individuals cannot socially distance,' the City of Jacksonville posted on his official Twitter page. 'Please continue to practice personal responsibility to help stop the spread of this virus,' it continued. The Jacksonville order will go into effect Monday evening and include all areas where individuals are unable to social distances – including its beaches. Earlier this month, the Republican National Committee moved its convention to Florida after North Carolina Democrats refused to allow the events to include the president's desired crowd sizes. While Jacksonville lawmakers are not putting restrictions on the crowd size,...
    Democratic activist Shaun King made a shockingly honest observation about the Democratic Party on Friday. King, who is known for his activism around racism and police brutality, denounced "generic" imperatives from leaders that voting is the process by which the black community can receive criminal justice reform. That is because, as King observed, Democrats control the cities that are guilty of the "worst police brutality." "Democrats, from top to bottom, are running the cities with the worst police brutality in America right now," King said. "We voted for them." Minneapolis, for example, the city where nationwide protests started in the wake of George Floyd's tragic death, is run by Democratic Mayor Jacob Frey, and the city council has zero sitting Republicans; it is comprised of 12 Democrats and one member of the Green Party. In that city, police have rendered 44 people unconscious over the past five years...
