Michael Siluk/Education Images/Universal Images Group via Getty Images According to the QAnon conspiracy theory, liberal elites are kidnapping children and forcing them into sex trafficking. The outlandish accusations aside, most missing children cases have no relation to kidnapping. More often, missing children turn out to be runaways. Erin Albright, an anti-human trafficking and law enforcement consultant, said the misrepresentations propagated by QAnon could create problems for people working to help trafficked children.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. In the QAnon theory's conspiratorial view of the world, there's a vast network of liberal elites working to snatch up children in random kidnappings and...
    While Donald Trump showered some rare words of praise on Democratic nominee Joe Biden Monday morning, he also took aim at the candidate's mental state, claiming he's not 'all there.' 'Look, I think he's a professional,' Trump said in a call-in interview with Fox & Friends when asked about the upcoming debate. 'I don't know if he's all there but I think he's a professional… and that he can debate.' 'I have to assume he's going to do great — because he's been there 47 years he's been in the public service. A long time,' the president continued of Biden's long track record in Washington. Part of his comments are a sharp turnaround from the president's previous insistence that his...
    Fox News’ Chris Wallace spoke with Senator Tom Cotton Sunday about the upcoming Supreme Court fight and what Republicans like Cotton were saying in 2016 after then-President Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland. Wallace played comments of Cotton saying in 2016, “In a few short months, we will have a new president and new senators who can consider the next justice with the full faith of the American people. Why would we cut off the national debate about this next justice? Why would we squelch the voice of the people? Why would we deny the voters a chance to weigh in on the make of the Supreme Court?” So Wallace asked Cotton why Obama appointing Garland was wrong then but...
    By Katelyn Polantz, Caroline Kelly and Christina Carrega | CNN Attorney General William Barr, in an exclusive interview on CNN, broadly defended the actions of police, saying shootings of Black Americans often weren’t racially motivated and weren’t as common as public demonstrations have made them seem. “I don’t think there are two justice systems,” Barr said in a sometimes contentious interview on CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.” “I think the narrative that the police are in some epidemic of shooting unarmed black men is simply a false narrative and also the narrative that’s based on race.” Barr acknowledged, however, that at times it created different situations for Black and White Americans. “I think there are some situations...
            by Nicholas Ballasy  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden shouldn’t debate President Trump. Biden said later that he will debate Trump. “I don’t think there should be any debates. I do not think the president of the United States has comported himself in a way that anybody has any association with truth, evidence, data and facts. I wouldn’t legitimize a conversation with him nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States,” Pelosi said. “I know the Biden campaign thinks in a different way about this. But I just thought what [Trump] he did in 2016 was disgraceful, stalking Hillary Clinton like that. I was disappointed the press didn’t...
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told reporters on Thursday that there should be no presidential debates between President Trump and Democrat nominee Joe Biden (D), dismissing them as nothing more than an “exercise in skullduggery.” “I myself — don’t tell anybody I told you this. Especially don’t tell Joe Biden. I don’t think that there should be any debates,” the speaker bluntly stated, fueling the concerns of those who suspect Biden will cave to outside pressure and skip the presidential debates: .@SpeakerPelosi: “Don’t tell anybody I told you this..

    Savannah Rychcik August 27, 2020 0 Comments Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) suggested on Thursday President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden should have conversations with the American people rather than with each other. During her press briefing, Pelosi told reporters Trump is not capable of debating in a dignified manner. “Don’t tell anybody I told you this— especially don’t tell Joe Biden. I don’t think that there should be any debates. I do not think that the president of the United States has comported himself in a way that anybody has any association with truth, evidence, data and facts,” Pelosi said. She continued, “I wouldn’t legitimize a conversation with him nor a debate, in terms of the presidency...
    Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio asserted during a Tuesday press briefing that children eating indoors at school is not comparable to people eating indoors at restaurants, which remains illegal under his lockdown mandate. “I don’t think there’s a similarity at all,” de Blasio said regarding the comparison, according to the New York Post. “We have an imperative — a legal imperative, a moral imperative, an educational imperative — to give kids the best education we can. We know that means having at least some time in person.” “Versus indoor dining, which is obviously a very optional activity, which some people do a lot who have the resources and others can’t do at all because they don’t have the...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci said he does not think the government will require people to get coronavirus inoculations. “I don’t think you'll ever see a mandating of vaccine particularly for the general public,” Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Tuesday during an interview with Healthline. Fauci added that he would “be pretty surprised if you mandated it for any element of the general public.” A Gallup poll conducted between late July and early August found that only 65% of all U.S. adults would take an FDA-approved vaccine for COVID-19, while 35% of people said they would not. Among Democrats, 81% said they would get the vaccine while less than half of Republicans...

    Igor Derysh July 3, 2020 4:00PM (UTC) Many police reformers have pointed to Camden, New Jersey, as a model for overhauling police departments around the nation in response to protests over police killings of unarmed Black people. But unlike the current community-based initiatives seen in many cities after the George Floyd killing, Camden's decision to dismantle its police was partly prompted by Republican budget cuts — and the results have been more complicated than its proponents admit. As Black Lives Matter protesters call to reallocate police budgets to social services, which the Minneapolis City Council has vowed to do, and build relationships with the communities the departments serve, Camden has been touted as a success story after dissolving its city...
    2020 Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden expressed support for the removal of Confederate statues on Tuesday, though added that statues of Christopher Columbus, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson should be protected by the government. After Biden was asked by a reporter for his thoughts on Princeton University’s decision to remove Woodrow Wilson’s name from their buildings, and what he thinks when he sees the removal of statues, Biden said, “I think there are sort of three categories on that.” “Any institution that chose a name and wants to now jettison that name, that’s the decision for them to make for whatever reason they make, so I’m assuming the board of trustees at Princeton University made...
    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on Monday weighed in on President Donald Trump’s chances in the upcoming 2020 presidential election as polling shows the incumbent is struggling in battleground states. Huckabee told FNC’s “Fox & Friends” that he thinks “the only person who can defeat Donald Trump is Donald Trump,” but the former presidential candidate said Trump needs to tweak the tone of his messaging in these “very tense times” to be more of a “calming voice of reassurance.” “I think the only person who can defeat Donald Trump is Donald Trump,” Huckabee advised. “I say that his message is the right one, but the matter in which he says it becomes critically important. We are in very tense...

    WTI Crude Oil WTI Crude Oil Market It has retreated a bit during the trading session on Friday, while we continue to see erratic movements since at first it has tried to rise towards the differential to be able to fill it but then it has not been able to break above there. Between the differential and that the 200-day exponential moving average (EMA) is just above there, I think we are going to find a lot of resistance in this area. I think the price is likely to start moving within a range, and in fact that is what I think is already happening right now. “Data-reactid =” 13 “> The WTI crude oil market has retreated a...

    Matthew Chapman June 25, 2020 2:16AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Raw Story On CNN Wednesday, in an interview with anchor Wolf Blitzer, former National Security Adviser John Bolton laid into President Donald Trump for his failure to immediately safeguard the United States from the coronavirus pandemic. "You blame the president directly," said Blitzer. : "I think that the evidence is unmistakable, that the experts early on in January at the CDC, the National Institutes of Health, at the National Security Council, were sounding the alarm," said Bolton. "I think there was an empty chair in the Oval Office because the president did not want to hear bad news about Xi Jinping, his friend. He did not want...
    Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Bill Hemmer Reports,” Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) said the Michigan polls gauging the match-up between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee former Vice President Joe Biden are too close to call. Discussing an outlier poll, Dingell said, “First of all, I didn’t believe that poll. The Polster who did that poll said we are 16 points up said October 6, 2016, that Hillary Clinton had it in the bag on October 26, 2016 said there was no way she could lose.” She continued, “Subsequent to that there have been two polls, one showing Joe Biden up two points and one showing him one point up. I think it’s competitive in Michigan. I think it’s five months...

    There aren’t many books about investing that remain relevant over 40 years after they were first published. Burton Malkiel’s A Random Walk Down Wall Street, first published in 1973 and now in its twelfth edition, is one. Malkiel’s observation — that short-term fluctuations in the markets make stocks unpredictable and that it’s thus usually wiser for individual investors to put most of their money in broad index funds — helped spark the decades-long boom in passive investing. With the coronavirus pandemic buffeting markets, Malkiel spoke with MarketWatch about a few of the big recent phenomena: the effects of the Federal Reserve’s massive stimulus, whether this time is different for the oft-anticipated “death of passive” investing and his thoughts...
    Attorney General William Barr addressed the officer-involved shooting of Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta during a Fox News interview on Sunday, saying that the case was fundamentally different from the case involving the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. “There is a lot of activity in Atlanta right now because of the charges against the officer who killed Rayshard Brooks,” Fox News host Maria Bartiromo said. “We saw the video of Brooks grabbing the officer’s Taser, using the Taser against him. The officer’s being charged with felony murder. He could face execution.” “Did that case merit murder charges, or is that officer being lumped in with the upset over George Floyd?” Bartiromo asked. “Well, because I might be called upon as...
    natural gas markets They were up a bit during the trading session on Friday as there was some positive sentiment ahead of the weekend. The market has continued to show that there is a lot of support at the $ 1.60 level, which further extends down to the $ 1.50 level. Right now I think it’s only a matter of time before we reach the 50-day exponential moving average (EMA) again, which means there’s not too much of a margin to rise. I think what we are going to see from now on are oscillations up and down, albeit with a certain upward bias due to being at such “cheap” price levels. “Data-reactid =” 12 “> Natural gas markets...
    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher said that there appears to be a debate on the left about whether America is “irredeemable or whether we are saveable.” And the view that America is not redeemable wasn’t “the view of Barack Obama, or certainly, of Martin Luther King.” Maher said, “It does seem like there is a debate going on, certainly on the left, about whether we are irredeemable or whether we are saveable.” After citing a New York Times op-ed, “Yes, We Mean Literally Abolish the Police,” Maher stated, “These are the folks, there are people who believe that things in this country cannot be saved. Now, I don’t think this was the view of Barack Obama, or...
    During a portion of an interview with the Fox Business Network released on Friday, Attorney General William Barr stated that he would have preferred to see the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) complete its investigation before charges were brought in the killing of Rayshard Brooks. Barr also criticized the lack of a grand jury in the case. Barr said, “I certainly would have liked to have seen the Georgia Bureau of [Investigation] complete their investigation before charges were brought, and also, the use of a grand jury. The grand jury process provides some protection to have the citizens, in a group, decide that there has been a crime committed. And there was no grand jury used in this case. So,...
    The coronavirus has infected an Arizona sheriff who opposed his state's lockdown order as unconstitutional and said he wouldn’t enforce it. Sheriff Mark Lamb, a Republican, told Fox 10 Phoenix Friday he was infected by someone who attended a political event he held last weekend. “I don’t think there were a lot of people wearing masks there,” Lamb told the station. “I wasn’t wearing a mask.” ARIZONA SHERIFF CALLS GOP GOV'S LOCKDOWN ORDER 'GOVERNMENT OVERREACH,' SAYS HE WON'T ARREST OR CITE VIOLATORS Lamb was one of two sheriffs who said in April they weren’t going to enforce Republican Gov.

    Are there any schools where football and basketball are equally loved? This is a question that has been heating up Reddit with some passionate debates, and I’m not really sure there are. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) As the Reddit thread points out, we’re not talking about schools that are equally great in both programs, but schools that love both programs the same amount. There is a difference.

    Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson said during a radio interview Monday that he would "work with" President Trump on the issue of athletes taking a knee during the national anthem -- which the president has continuously voiced his opposition -- saying, "He’ll get there." Carson, Trump’s only black cabinet member, said he believes most players are kneeling to protest police brutality rather than to disrespect the flag, but added that players need to make that clear. "A lot of people are under the impression that they're kneeling because they don't respect our national anthem or they don't respect the flag or what it stands for. And in fact, I don't think that's the reason that most of them are kneeling....
    President Trump said he had no problem with Gen. Mark Milley’s apology for accompanying the commander in chief for a photo last week outside St. John’s Episcopal Church, which had been damaged by a fire set by protesters the night before. “I think it was a beautiful picture,” Trump told Fox News in an interview with Harris Faulkner to be aired today at 1 p.m. New York time. “And I’ll tell you, I think Christians think it was a beautiful picture,” he added. Asked whether the pushback he later got from Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Defense Secretary Mark Esper over the photo offended him, the president said: “No, no, I mean, if that’s the...
    The cannabis trade found itself in an even weirder position than most industries during the COVID-19 pandemic, declared an essential business in the states where it’s legal even while it’s refused federal business aid because of the plant’s prohibition. As the new head of the Marijuana Industry Group, one of Colorado cannabis’s largest trade associations, Truman Bradley had a lot of work to do. A Denver dispensary owner for most of the last decade, Bradley had moved into his new role just as such tough issues as industry diversity, hospitality and delivery popped up. And, oh, yeah, COVID. We recently chatted with him about those challenges, and more. Westword: With the current economy in mind, will more Colorado towns be...
    FORT WORTH, Texas — All 148 players who registered for the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club and their caddies were tested for COVID-19 upon arrival, and every one tested negative. For the PGA Tour, and particularly commissioner Jay Monahan, that was a significant first hurdle as the sport returns to tournament play this week for the first time in three months. Monahan on Wednesday said he was “certainly pleased’’ with that result, but added, “If there’s one thing you learn as you look back over the last 90 days and you go forward, there’s steps that you take. We’ve passed some important hurdles. But now we get inside the field of play. Now you think about all the...
    Joe Biden’s campaign has made it clear that the former vice president does not support the campaign to “defund the police.” On Wednesday night, The Daily Show host Trevor Noah tried to see if he could get him there. “You know, many activists and organizers have come out saying, there have been repeated attempts to reform many police departments,” Noah said. “Were it not for civilian cameras, we wouldn’t know the truth oftentimes.” As police departments continue to be “contradicted” by video evidence, the host asked Biden directly, “If you were to become president, do you think that there would be a world where defunding the police would be the solution?”  “Well I think there are a lot of changes...
    The COVID-19 pandemic has led to increased discussion over mail-in ballots for the 2020 presidential election in November. With the possibility of a “second wave” of the virus in the fall, some politicians and media figures have shown support for expanding mail-in accessibility for the general American public. Politicians and commentators who oppose such efforts have also offered their opinions. The Daily Wire previously interviewed Catherine Engelbrecht of True the Vote on the topic, which you can read here. On Thursday, we spoke with Tom Ridge, co-chair of VoteSafe, “a cross-partisan coalition of election administrators and organizations that endorse the simple principle that every American has the right to vote safely amidst the pandemic,” according to the official VoteSafe website....
    (CNN)New York Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said on Thursday his city "absolutely" does not need active duty US military soldiers to control protests.His comment comes amid days of nationwide protests over the death of George Floyd and police brutality against black citizens. In some cities, including NYC, peaceful protests have turned violent and President Donald Trump on Monday vowed to use the military if the violence is not quelled. New York Gov.

    Robert O'Brien, a national security adviser to President Donald Trump, said on Sunday that he does not believe there is a problem with "systemic racism" in U.S. policing, and also described the death of George Floyd as an "absolute outrage." "No, I don't think there's systemic racism," O'Brien said during an interview with CNN's State of the Union on Sunday. "I think 99.9 percent of our law enforcement officers are great Americans and many of them are African American, Hispanic, Asian. They're working the toughest neighborhoods, they've got the hardest jobs to do in this country. I think they're amazing, great Americans, and they're my heroes. But you know what, there are some bad apples in there." Speaking to ABC...
    Washington (CNN)National security adviser Robert O'Brien on Sunday denied in an interview on CNN that systemic racism exists across the nation's police forces, arguing instead that "a few bad apples" give the impression of racism among law enforcement officers. "No, I don't think there's systemic racism. I think 99.9% of our law enforcement officers are great Americans. Many of them are African American, Hispanic, Asian, they're working the toughest neighborhood, they've got the hardest jobs to do in this country and I think they're amazing, great Americans," O'Brien told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" when asked if systemic racism was a problem for police agencies.O'Brien added that there are "some bad apples in there.
