    More On: Anthony Fauci Meghan McCain doubles-down on Fauci attack Fauci’s boss says Trump admin deserves credit for COVID vaccine development Meghan McCain: Replace Fauci with someone who ‘understands science’ When Fauci says high school students could get COVID-19 vaccine Dr. Anthony Fauci says the US has “done worse than most any other country” in battling COVID-19. With the country’s current 500,000-plus deaths nearly double the figure of Brazil, the nation with the next highest number of mortalities, Fauci told ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America” Monday, “It’s so tough to just go back and try and do a metaphorical autopsy on how things went. It was just bad. “I believe that if you look back historically, we’ve done worse than most any other country — and we’re a highly developed, rich country,” the nation’s top infectious-disease doctor said. “I think these numbers are just so stunning,” said the director of...

    President Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci declared Monday on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that the United States had “done worse than most any other country” in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Anchor George Stephanopoulos said, “Five hundred thousand Americans, families grieving all across the country. Did this have to be?” Fauci said, “Well, certainly some of it, but not this bad, George. I believe that if you look back historically, we’ve done worse than most any other country, and we’re a highly developed rich country.” He continued, “There were things back then, if you go back and think about what you might have done, the kind of disparate responses of different states rather than having a unified approach. But it’s so tough to go back and try to do a metaphorical autopsy on how things went. It was just bad. It is bad now.” He added, “I...
    With the U.S. about to hit the tragic milestone of 500,000 coronavirus deaths, Dr. Anthony Fauci is offering a candid assessment of the nation’s response. In an interview on Good Morning America Monday, the infectious disease expert was questioned by host George Stephanopoulos about whether there was more that the U.S. could have done to lessen the impact of Covid-19. “Five hundred thousand Americans — families grieving all across the country,” Stephanopoulos said. “Did this have to be?” “Certainly some of it, but not this bad,” Fauci said. “I believe that if you look back historically, we’ve done worse than most any other country — and we’re a highly developed rich country.” Fauci did not invoke or directly assign blame to former President Donald Trump. But he did cite the prior administration’s lack of a national strategy as a primary reason why the virus has hit so hard. “There were...
    NATOMAS (CBS13) – Back to school is on top of many families’ minds. Natomas Unified School District returns as soon as next week, while other districts linger in limbo. “For my son, it’s good news,” said Galaum Nabi, who is eager for his youngest to be back in school. “He’s always wanting to see his friends.” Back to school will soon be the reality for many TK-6th grade students in Natomas. Many will return on a small scale next week, before moving to a concurrent schedule the following week. The district’s decision to return was seemingly made quickly as soon as Sacramento County’s numbers dropped below 25 COVID cases per 100,000 people. “We literally just cleared our schedule Wednesday and started calling board members,” said Natomas Superintendent Chris Evans. Though, CBS13 was told the plans were in motion for much longer, as tentative strategies and cleaning measures were created and...

    HARRY MAGUIRE and Victor Lindelof are holding Manchester United back because they cannot form a partnership, Gary Neville has claimed.

    GARETH Widdop has a single focus after deciding to leave his family on the other side of the world. Proving to Warrington fans he is worth the cost. 5 Gareth Widdop is back at Warrington - on the other side of the world from his familyCredit: SWPIX.COM Coming home to England after emigrating to Australia aged 16 and becoming an NRL star should have been a dream.

    The coronavirus pandemic and the election of Joe Biden as president has given rise to a "busybody phenomenon" across America, "courtesy of unhinged progressives who are happiest when they're ordering someone else around," Laura Ingraham told viewers Tuesday. "The Ingraham Angle" host cited examples of the busybody phenomenon as varied as TV hosts freaking out about revelers celebrating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl win, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti encouraging citizens to report violations of the city's stay-at-home order with the phrase "snitches get rewards". "Now, this is funny in one way, but it's pernicious stuff and it's infected every level of our society," said Ingraham, who posited that "90% of the sanctimonious snitches are just frustrated, bitter lefties with too much time on their hands." But with Biden in office, she added, "the snitches are even more emboldened." Ingraham went on to proclaim that "these seething snitches have more...

The Premier League champions were desperate for defensive reinforcements in the winter window. 1Samuel Umtiti reportedly rejected a move to Liverpool in JanuaryCredit: The Mega Agency According to The Athletic, Liverpool made an approach for Umtiti, but the Frenchman preferred to stay at Barcelona.

Klopp was in the market for additons at the back with Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez still out injured. Joel Matip briefly returned, but picked up an ankle knock...
    Derek Chauvin, the white Minneapolis cop accused of killing George Floyd by kneeling on his neck during an arrest last spring, allegedly used similarly dangerous and suffocating force in confrontations with at least six other people years earlier.  Chauvin is facing charges of unintentional second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter after he pressed his knee into the neck of Floyd, a black man, for eight minutes during an arrest on May 25.  Prosecutors are now seeking to present details at his trial from six other arrests of people who Chauvin allegedly restrained with similar excessive force - holding them by their necks or kneeling on top of them.  Three of those people, along with a fourth person who witnessed one of the arrests, shared their accounts with The Marshall Project in an article published Tuesday.  One of them was Zoya Code, whose experience with Chauvin in 2017 bears a disturbing resemblance...

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson reportedly told Joe Biden that his ascendancy to the White House represented a “moment of hope in a dark time” as the leaders discussed their ‘Build Back Better’ agenda during a phone call on Saturday. Mr Johnson is reported to be the first international leader in Europe to speak with Joe Biden as President. Relations between the two leaders appear to have warmed, after initially seeming cool due to Biden’s opposition to Brexit and Johnson’s past criticism of Barack Obama removing a bust of Sir Winston Churchill from the Oval Office. According to a White House readout of the conversation, Biden expressed his intention to work with the Johnson administration to “revitalise transatlantic ties” and work through “multilateral organisations, on shared challenges such as combating climate change, containing COVID-19, and ensuring global health security.” “He noted his readiness to work closely with Prime Minister Johnson as...
    (CNN) — Members of the National Guard have been allowed back into the Capitol Complex after a slate of lawmakers voiced their outrage at guardsmen being banished to a parking garage as a rest area, a guardsman told CNN. The Guard will now be allowed to rest in the US Capitol Visitor Center, the guardsman said. The change comes after thousands of National Guardsmen were moved to a parking garage after they were told they could no longer use space within the US Capitol Complex, including areas like the cafeteria of a Senate office building, as a rest area, multiple Guardsmen told CNN. Prior to Thursday morning, several areas throughout the Capitol Complex were designated as authorized rest areas where members of the Guard could take breaks from their shifts protecting the Capitol. By Thursday morning, all those areas had been cleared out and their designations removed, the Guardsmen said. “We honestly...
    (CBS Boston/CBS Local) – New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft said the franchise is proud to offer Gillette Stadium as a COVID-19 mass vaccination site, saying he hopes others will do the same in order to “get our country back.” The vaccination site opened at Gillette Stadium for first responders on Monday.

    The Mavericks finally bounced back after losing three back-to-back games. They won 124-112 against the Pacers to stand at 7-7 this season. It was a solid team performance that helped the Mavs put a W against a scary Pacers side led by Malcolm Brogdon. Obviously, it was not without the help of Luka Doncic that the Mavs could pull a win. Luka opened the game with a two-point shot and did not look back. He missed out on a couple of mid-range jump shots but got better as the game proceeded. In the end, he set an individual record in yet another feat of brilliance this season. Mavericks’ Luka Doncic for yet another league record For many NBA analysts, it is only about time that Luka will soon see his name alongside LeBron James in the category of legends. He is just 21-YO and still more than a month...
    Media watch: Obama-Era Gaslighting Is Back After four years of complaints from the media that “outgoing President Donald Trump treated them as an enemy,” we are about to return to “the gaslighting of the Obama era,” predicts Ben Shapiro at RealClearPolitics. Outlets are already “praising the newfound veracity of President Biden’s press team,” even though his press secretary has previously been accused of lying to the media. Journalists will spend the next four years ignoring real controversies to debate “just how cute Joe Biden’s dog is.” Some will seek alternative news sources, “but that will only provoke the media to seek new methods of repressing those alternatives. As it turns out, the commitment of many in our media isn’t to truth or facts. It’s to monopolistic control.” COVID journal: About Those Predictions of Doom An “ominous” December story in The Atlantic insisted “Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds’ reluctance to embrace stringent...

    Olivier Douliery/Getty Images Parler is likely to be down “longer than expected” due to vendors following the cue sent by Amazon, Google, and Apple, CEO John Matze said Monday. “We will likely be down longer than expected,” Matze wrote in a statement. “This is not due to software restrictions — we have our software and everyone’s data ready to go. Rather it’s that Amazon’s, Google’s, and Apple’s statements to the press about dropping our access has caused most of our other vendors to drop their support for us as well.” “Most people with enough servers to host us have shut their doors to us,” he added. “We will update everyone and update the press when we are back online.” Matze had previously expressed hope that his company would be back in business by the end of the week.

    Getty After practice on Friday the Pittsburgh Steelers placed linebacker Ulysees Gilbert III on injured reserve, shortly after ruling him out of Sunday afternoon’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. It’s the second time Gilbert has been placed on IR this season. This time it’s an ankle injury; he was also on the injured reserve list between November 4th and December 12th with a back injury. Gilbert played in just four game this season after missing half of the 2019 campaign with a fractured vertebra in his back. Inside linebacker Vince Williams takes Gilbert’s place on the 53-man roster. Williams was activated off the Reserve/COVID-19 list two days ago, having missed the last two games after apparently struggling with symptoms of the virus. Before testing positive for COVID-19, Williams started the first 12 games of the 2020 season. He has 63 tackles this season (41 solo), plus three sacks,...
    The United States has faced challenging Christmases before the COVID-19 pandemic, but "we came back better than ever," former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says in a Christmas Day opinion piece.  "Someday we will look back on Christmas 2020 and realize that life got better, and our dreams got bigger, as the virus was gradually defeated," Gingrich wrote for Fox News, where he is a contributor.  But still, "when we look back years from now, we will all realize how much our lives have been defined in 2020, and probably the first half of 2021, by the pandemic. The process of recovery will take years — and in some ways, some of us may never recover," said Gingrich. "Businesses have failed, loved ones have been lost, and the psychological damage (especially for the young) may take years to heal. Some may never get beyond this year’s isolation, fear, and deprivation." Gingrich...
    The city of Detroit has issued a countersuit against Black Lives Matter, just days after protestors won a restraining order against Detroit police officers. The protestors’ suit at the end of August alleged that Detroit police routinely “responded with violence” and bars them from using “tools of excessive force.” The court then issued temporary orders to limit the police’s use of force. Less than one month later, city officials filed their official response along with a countersuit against Black Lives Matter and Detroit Will Breathe, the Intercept reports.

    Despite their oath to uphold the Constitution, these Republican lawmakers are hoping to disenfranchise tens of millions of citizens. More than 100 House Republicans have endorsed a Texas lawsuit aimed at throwing out the votes in states carried by President-elect Joe Biden. This came despite their oath to protect and defend the Constitution, which established the framework for state administration of presidential elections. Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) announced this week that he will file an amicus brief on behalf of his GOP colleagues "who are deeply concerned about the integrity of our election system," in support of the quixotic lawsuit. According to CNN, he sent a personal email to every other House Republican urging them to sign on. The suit, filed on Monday by Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, seeks to overturn the results from the 2020 presidential elections...
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Interim coach Todd Fitch expects Vanderbilt will have enough players for their final home game of the season. The Tennessee Volunteers might want to play Saturday even more than Vanderbilt with each team viewing matchup as its best and likely last chance to end ugly skids before this very unusual season ends. The Commodores (0-8) have lost eight straight and are trying to avoid the first winless season in school history. Tennessee (2-7) already has tied the longest skid in its vaunted history with six straight losses at a program with only eight seasons with seven or more losses. “Our opportunities are running out,” Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt said. “I think both sides will be aggressive and try to do everything that they can to play at the best of their ability.” Vanderbilt has been through a lot the past two weeks.

    Deiveson Figueiredo is set for his second title defense in less than a month. He will face Brandon Moreno in the main event of UFC 256 this weekend. The flyweight champion Figueiredo defeated Alex Perez in his last outing at UFC 255. At UFC 256, he will become the champion with the fastest back-to-back appearances. Before that fight against Moreno, Figueiredo seemed to be in a light mood and opened up on many things, including his personal life. Figueiredo has a pet water buffalo. Quite a choice for the UFC champion to have a pet no doubt. Those animals can be wild sometimes. But in an interview with Ben Fowlkes, Figueiredo revealed that they are actually very tamable unless they get wild. He said, “But you can’t let them second-guess you. Then they get aggressive. And then you’re in big trouble.” It’s fair to say that Figueiredo enjoys his spare...
    The failures of the United States to respond to the coronavirus pandemic and its attendant economic challenges is well documented. More than that, millions of Americans are living those failures every day: The $600 in expanded unemployment insurance that expired in July and wasn’t renewed. The Paycheck Protection Program that didn’t reach many of the businesses that needed it most. (Disclosure: Kos Media received a Paycheck Protection Program loan.) The state unemployment benefits extension that will expire soon, and the eviction protections similarly expiring. The struggling industries that didn’t get bailed out. It’s disaster after disaster, and “failure” is a generous word since it’s the result of a refusal by Senate Republicans and Donald Trump to do the right thing. We have only to look at other countries to see that it didn’t need to be this way. Just to the north in Canada, workers who’ve lost jobs or income are getting $2,000 a month in addition to subsidies...
    Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler on Tuesday announced their support of a Texas lawsuit at the Supreme Court which seeks to have the justices declare that Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia are "in violation of the Electors Clause of and the Fourteenth Amendment" and bar those states' current slates of presidential electors from casting their votes.  The suit, led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, is an extraordinary effort to essentially overturn the result of the presidential election, which President-elect Biden won because of key victories by tens of thousands of votes in the states Texas is suing. This latest legal action, following numerous losses by President Trump's legal teams and his allies, seeks to take advantage of the Supreme Court's rarely used original jurisdiction to bypass the lower courts and put the issue directly in front of the justices.  Loeffler and Perdue, both Georgia Republicans who have backed challenges to the result in Georgia...
    (CNN)When the coronavirus pandemic struck the United States last spring, automakers were asked to step in to help address critical shortages of ventilators, face shields and fabric masks. As car factories shut down, Ford (F), General Motors (GM), Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) and other manufacturers pivoted and started producing medical devices and personal protection equipment. Workers were retrained or newly hired to produce the new products. But even as the automakers began ramping back up regular vehicle production, they have continued to make much-needed supplies to battle the pandemic. A Ford Motor Company employee packaging face masks.In part, this is because they require the supplies themselves. Production line workers, in particular, need masks and face shields to protect against infection while they're working. But the companies are also addressing demand outside their own companies, especially as cases of Covid surge across the US, spokespeople and executives at Ford, Fiat Chrysler and...
    Record-breaking wildfires and a relentless hurricane season — on top of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic — have left more Americans in need of emergency housing than ever before.  American families have spent more time in Red Cross emergency lodging in 2020 than any other on record, the humanitarian organization recently announced. More than one million times this year, a person in the U.S. has relied on disaster housing — more than four times the annual average from 2011 to 2019.  "Families are overwhelmed coping with the greatest number of billion-dollar disasters in a single year — on top of the coronavirus pandemic," said Gail McGovern, president and CEO of the American Red Cross.

    Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) is offering to buy his socialist colleague, Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent who caucuses with Democrats, and other congressional socialists plane tickets so they can campaign with Democrat Jon Ossoff ahead of the January 5 runoff in Georgia. Perdue also offered to buy a plane ticket for socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who like Sanders supports Ossoff, to campaign for the Georgia Democrat. “Jon Ossoff is eager to put his socialist supporters like AOC and Bernie on liberal cable news shows, but he won’t have them come down and campaign for him in Georgia,” Perdue told Breitbart News exclusively on Saturday. “Is he worried they’ll expose him for the radical trust fund socialist that he really is? I’ve been proud to hit the trail with conservative leaders like Vice President Pence and our president, Donald Trump. Ossoff should be willing to do the same with...

    Heavyweight veteran Mike Tyson lived up to the hype as he put on some serious action against Roy Jones Jr. in their recently concluded exhibition clash. The fight ended in a draw. However, ‘Iron’ Mike dominated the contest with some clean strike throughout the 16 minutes. He began the fight with early aggression and went straight after Roy Jones Jr. He did so despite knockouts being off the table as it was an exhibition. But, Tyson constantly overpowered Jones with some slick body shots and combinations. Even though ‘Captain Hook’ reciprocated, he could not cause much damage to Tyson. Now that their fight is part of the history books, the two legends are eager to have one more fight. Mike Tyson has vowed to do so after a discussion with family; Jones might also have the same motive. That said, their first fight has grabbed attention from all over the globe....
    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers could be getting a handful key players back from injuries this week but may have to wait longer for six players on the COVID-19 list to return. Receiver Deebo Samuel has been cleared to return for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams after missing the past three games with a hamstring injury. Leading rusher Raheem Mostert (ankle), starting cornerback Richard Sherman (calf) and backup running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) are set to be activated from injured reserve on Saturday and are all questionable to play this week. Defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw was activated from the COVID-19 list Friday and is also questionable to play against the Rams. It wasn’t all good news for the 49ers, who have been decimated by injuries and the coronavirus all season. Left tackle Trent Williams, receiver Brandon Aiyuk, defensive linemen D.J.

    SHERMAN OAKS (CBSLA) — There was curbside pickup, but the line still wrapped around the block at Honey Baked Ham in Toluca Lake Tuesday. “Ham,” Said Coronado said going back to his car with two bags. “We got a lot of ham!” Coronado said about 30 people typically gather for his family’s Thanksgiving celebration. But, this year, they were keeping things separated and small in an effort to limit everyone’s exposure to COVID-19. “There’s only, I think, seven of us at one house, then six at the other house, and like four at the other one, you know,” he said. And Coronado isn’t the only one preparing for a pared down meal. “We are seeing a lot of smaller ham sizes,” Mitchell Dolfuss, store manager, said. “Cutting them up to fit, you know, smaller portions.” Monica Bosch, another shopper, said her family was celebrating outdoors in the afternoon instead of...
    New York (CNN Business)Costco is bringing back free food samples. Target is accepting customer returns on all merchandise. And Kroger is returning to its pre-pandemic store hours at some locations. Stores that were deemed "essential" and kept their doors open throughout the coronavirus pandemic are now taking steps to return to normal. The changes may be welcomed by customers who miss the conveniences of daily life pre-pandemic. But some worker safety experts, epidemiologists and labor groups warn that these companies are prematurely relaxing the safety measures they enacted in March and April to prevent the coronavirus from spreading.The easing of policies is playing out as more states and cities loosen stay-at-home orders and as retailers, malls and restaurants reopen.

    The three Fox & Friends hosts tend to be on the same page with each other about stuff. Unlike on certain other morning talk shows, there’s a level of baseline consensus. That’s sort of their thing. So it was surprising Monday morning when Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt had to repeatedly talk Brian Kilmeade off the ledge from telling viewers that any and all restrictions to protect them from COVID-19 were nonsense. As Thanksgiving fast approaches, health officials around the country are urging Americans to be responsible to keep the coronavirus from spreading ever further out of control during this crucial period before vaccines can be rolled out. But Kilmeade called new statewide rules like lockdowns and curfews “brutal” and “unnecessary” precisely “because the vaccine is no longer a hope, it’s a reality.” “We are weeks away from three straight vaccines in a row, can we have a business to...

    ROSEVILLE (CBS13) — Coronavirus cases are doubling in California, and now Gov. Gavin Newsom is pulling what he calls an “emergency brake.” This means most of the state is sliding back to the most restrictive “purple” tier, with a big impact in Placer County, which slid back two tiers. One week ago they were in orange, now they’re in purple. The coffee is still being curated inside at The Fig Tree Cafe in Roseville, but the owners are frustrated at yet another tier change handed down from the state. “Every time there’s been a drop in a tier, we’ve noticed a drastic drop in the number of people who are going out,” said owner, Joshua Lickter. Placer County joins 40 others across the state now in the purple tier.

    By MARK THIESSEN, Associated Press ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The debate between the candidates for Alaska’s sole seat in Congress became contentious Thursday, with challenger Alyse Galvin saying she’s tired of U.S. Rep. Don Young misrepresenting her position on issues. “I’m so tired of the lies that have been said throughout this entire campaign,” Galvin said, saying she doesn’t support the so-called Green New Deal, Medicare for all or for culling Second Amendment rights. “I’m really upset that this campaign has come to this,” she said. “You’re better than that, Don Young. Alaska’s better than that. We expect more.” Young countered that Galvin, whom he called Alice instead of Alyse at one point, was the one lying.

    Kanye West said Sunday that “Saturday Night Live” (SNL) is using “black people to hold other black people back.” The 43-year-old rapper took to Twitter to criticize the late-night sketch comedy show and said he was “praying for” actress Issa Rae and her family. Rae’s character had slammed the rapper on the show for running for president in the 2020 election. The post was noted by the Hollywood Reporter in a piece published Monday.

The bit, which also featured Kenan Thompson, 42, as the “Your Voice Chicago” talk show host and “SNL” co-star Ego Nwodim, 32, as a journalist for the Root, was inspired by Rae’s own comments during the 2017 Emmy Awards that she was “rooting for everybody black.” The character played by Rae, 35, was asked about several imaginary political black candidates with widely varied and sometimes questionable credentials, all of whom she supported, pointing out what could make them uniquely qualified.

    The estranged close friend of Melania Trump who wrote a tell-all book has brushed off criticism that she barely knew the first lady. Earlier this year, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff authored the insider book Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady, which revealed Trump’s beliefs about the children of immigrants separated from their parents at the border, her icy relationship with Ivanka Trump, and her disdain for some ceremonial first lady duties. On Thursday, Melania Trump released a scathing statement about her former friend, saying Wolkoff “hardly knew me,” and “clung to me” after Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016. In a statement on Saturday first shared with The Daily Beast, Wolkoff pushed back on the first lady’s assertion, pointing out that she attended her wedding and often stayed with the first family. “I find it puzzling that the First Lady of...
    The only good thing for Braves fans watching Game 3 of the NLCS was this: At least it was over quickly.

    White House coronavirus task force member Dr. Scott Atlas hit back at critics saying President Trump should not be back on the campaign trail after battling the coronavirus. “He meets that [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] definition,” Atlas told the Spectator following Trump’s Florida rally on Monday evening. “I don’t even know what the controversy is about him being outside, doing his job. I mean, he’s like all other Americans. He knows he has to go to work. And he’s not infectious. He’s not contagious.” “It’s obvious, I think, the people that don’t think he should be working, they have some other agenda in mind because that’s just not ... what the science says,” he said.
