    Former President Donald Trump told One America News Network on Tuesday that he believes Democrats are trying to destroy the U.S. from within and pose a greater threat than outside nations. In a wide-ranging interview with OAN host Dan Ball, Trump praised his time in office and lamented record inflation and a number of other issues stalling any progress previously made. “We had something special going two years ago. We were leading the world in every category, every group within our country was leading. African Americans, Asian Americans, women, men, Hispanics. Everybody was leading. Young people, old people,” Trump told Ball. According to the Republican leader, Democrats are looking to “destroy” the country and pose a more pressing threat than any other potential enemies abroad. “They’re looking to destroy the country. You know, I say it often, our challenge within, the danger from within, meaning people in this country, people that are ruining this country is greater in my opinion than outside, than outside nations and what they want to do to us,” the former president said with Ball jumping...

    Comedian Billy Eichner is opening up about the challenges he faced early on in his acting career. Eichner was a guest on the Sunday episode of Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend where he talked about his career, his popular show Billy on the Street, and new movie, Bros. Bros is slated to be the first gay romcom created by a major studio, set to release at the end of September. At one point during the conversation, Eichner discussed how being “too gay” was previously used as an excuse by executives to not hire him for television shows. “I had a live stage show that I did in New York, which is where the Billy on the Street videos started. I would show those videos on a screen. This is before YouTube even existed. This is like 2004, 2005,” he began. “But then an interesting thing happened where a lot of folks in the industry would come and they would acknowledge that I was talented or that they thought I was funny — that the audience was laughing a lot, that...

    DEAR ABBY: I’ve read your column for years, frequently taking advice you provide to others and applying it to my circumstances. I have developed a mutual bond with a woman who is 30 — 28 years younger than myself. She’s a waitress at a diner I frequent. I’ve seen her children grow over the past six or seven years. We have had many meaningful conversations and shared our highs and lows. She’s naturally friendly. Three or four years ago, she began sharing casual side hugs when I arrived. I never ask for them. Over the last year, these hugs have become more intimate — not in a sexual way, just a deeper bond of friendship. We occasionally IM when she’s off work, but I don’t see her socially. Lately she has been teasing that she’ll be my next ex. I reciprocate the flirting and teasing. I believe there is a mutual attraction. If not for the age difference, which I’m OK with, or the fear of causing issues with our friendship, I’d ask her out. Related Articles Advice...
    New York (CNN Business)Anyone who's stayed in an Airbnb knows the experience can be a roll of the dice. Anything can happen when you roll up to your rental. That's part of the charm — you might be pleasantly surprised by a free bottle of wine waiting for you in the kitchen, or you might have an adventure just trying to unlock the door with the weird skeleton key that you had to dig out from behind a tree in the backyard. But renters are getting increasingly fed up with lists of do's and don'ts that await them inside. Strip the beds, wash the linens, load and unload the dishwasher, water the plants, mow the lawn, don't touch the record collection... And that's on top of triple-digit cleaning fees.The backlash against persnickety hosts is growing, according to reporting from the Wall Street Journal. One traveler told the Journal that her $299-a-night Airbnb in Sedona, Arizona, came with a $375 cleaning fee, plus a list of chores.Which is pretty much the last thing anyone wants to do on vacation.

    After the Chicago Bears threw the ball only 11 times in a 27-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 2, readers want to know if the coaches doubt quarterback Justin Fields’ ability in the passing game — as well as questions about Kyler Gordon’s rookie struggles and whether Week 3 against the Houston Texans is a “must-win.” Brad Biggs answers those questions and more in his weekly mailbag. Aaron Rodgers seemed to target receivers matched up against rookie Kyler Gordon. He was also ineffective in run support. What was his performance grading in the game? How long will this coaching staff be patient with a rookie CB that needs development? — Ryan Y., Libertyville There were a handful of questions about Gordon, the second-round pick from Washington, this week and that wasn’t surprising because he had a rough go Sunday night at Lambeau Field.

    Dear Amy: I’m almost 50. I’ve been with my husband for 20 years. We are stable and very much in love. We have chosen to be polyamorous for the past five years. We initially didn’t tell my parents (and definitely not the in-laws!), but the Thanksgiving just before the pandemic I was going to have my partner of one year with me (“Steve”), and so I told my parents. Mom hasn’t taken it well. Steve and I have been together for three years now. He feels as permanent to me as my husband does. The pandemic solved the “holiday dilemma” for a couple of years, but that won’t fly this year. Mom refuses to accept Steve. I refuse to leave him alone on a major holiday.

    Justice Correspondent for The Nation Elie Mystal went off on former President Donald Trump and his followers in a blistering rant over Trump’s threat of “big problems” if he’s indicted. Earlier this week, Trump told radio host Hugh Hewitt that he couldn’t “imagine” he’ll be criminally indicted, but made a rather ominous prediction if that were to happen: TRUMP: But I think if it happened, I think you’d have problems in this country the likes of which perhaps we’ve never seen before. I don’t think the people of the United States would stand for it. HEWITT: What kind of problems, Mr. President. TRUMP: I think they’d have big problems, big problems. I just don’t think they’d stand for it. They will not, they will not sit still and stand for this… On Saturday’s edition of MSNBC’s The Cross Connection, host Tiffany Cross played that clip for Mystal, and asked for his take. Mystal was characteristically animated and unsparing in his criticism of Trump and his followers, and his mockery of Hewitt: TIFFANY CROSS: That sounds a lot like “Stand back and stand by.” He’s not acting like he’s under investigation....
    A bear walked into a 7-Eleven in California and made several trips in and out while carrying out snacks and candy bars. Source: YardNews/YouTube The cashier was working on the night shift at the 7-Eleven in Olympic Valley, California when he saw the door open but did not see anyone come in. SWNS reported that when he looked down, he saw a brown bear chewing on packaged snacks. “Initially, I was surprised. I see the door open, and I don’t see a torso, and I am like, ‘oh my god. It’s a bear,” Kinson told SWNS, adding that “the bear was about 20% to 30% bigger in real life” compared to photos.” While the bear scavenged around the store, the worker stayed out of the animal’s way. “I always kept my distance, and I had the back door near me so I could escape if it charged me,” Kinson said of the encounter. “I was scared initially, but they just want to eat. You always have to be careful, though. We don’t know how exactly they are thinking.”...
    A shocking new video shows an unruly perp attacking a police officer in Willoughby, Ohio, on Saturday. As the group descends on the unruly suspect, one of the good Samaritans can be heard telling him: 'You don't do that to a woman.'  The suspect, David Koubeck, 64, was pulled over for speeding by Officer Stacee Wright, 30, on September 10 along Lost Nation Road in Willoughby in suburban Cleveland.  The video shows Koubeck being immediately dismissive of Wright as he exits the vehicle without permission, saying that he needed to go to the back of the car to get his driver's license from the back.  Koubeck was driving a 2009 black Chevrolet Malibu when he was pulled over.   The suspect in the altercation, David Koubeck, later told investigators that he was 'having a bad day.' From there, Wright radios for backup, advising that the suspect had left his car. Wright demands that Koubeck sit on the curb, an order he disobeys. He yells: 'I'm not sitting! I'm not sitting!' Koubeck continues to raise his voice to Wright while ignoring another command...
    Nobody will ever love me again. Those were the words I wrote under the heading ‘your greatest fear’, as part of an exercise at a divorce bootcamp three years ago.  I was more scared of being single than I was of ending up homeless or stuck in financial purgatory.  That said, I wasn’t exactly fearless about the prospect of finding someone to love me. Single friends had warned me about online dating. The self-confidence-crushing no-show dates, unwanted nude pictures, ghosting and love bombing and so-called ‘bread-crumbing’ (i.e leading you on by showing morsels of interest with no intention of actually going out — surprisingly common online).  It is daunting, especially when your confidence is at an all-time low post-divorce, but I learned it really doesn’t have to be dismal.

    My first priority after the 2016 election was to find the next available hand-to-hand combat preparedness class because I would not be caught dead walking around the Upside Down of Pantsuit Nation without training for it. Weeks after the election, I was in a basement classroom at a Manhattan gun range. A former police officer who now works as a stuntman went over how to use our body parts as weapons, how to grab a man’s package and twist, and how to take a video of a potential assailant, because after an attack your brain may protect itself by wiping the memory. Amid practice shots fired outside the room, I took notes. But one point wasn’t being covered, one point he didn’t have to consider: How do you say no to a man on a date without being rude? And without making him mad? The ex‑officer searched his notes. “Men react like dogs,” he said finally. “A genial ‘no’ sounds a lot like ‘yes.’ A ‘nice no’ has multiple translations, like ‘convince me’ and ‘try harder’ and ‘you don’t mean...
    Getty Khamzat Chimaev celebrates after his TKO victory over Rhys McKee. UFC superstar Khamzat Chimaev responded to the accusations that he faked a glove touch at UFC 279. Following his incredible win over Kevin Holland, some fans criticized Chimaev for faking a touch of gloves at the start of the fight. Chimaev had already touched gloves with Holland at the beginning when referee Herb Dean brought the two in the middle of the octagon. But, users claimed that Chimaev pretended to touch gloves with Holland once again and took advantage of the situation by going for a takedown when Holland got distracted. Holland did not mention the controversy and seemed not to share the same belief. During the post-fight press conference, Chimaev looked confused when he got asked about the incident and responded to the accusations. “What?” Chimaev said. “I don’t understand, how are we going to see? I want to take off his head, I’m going to watch his hands? I was watching his head. I don’t know, always people find some funny things to say. They...
    Believe it or not, you might want to skip rinsing the toothpaste out of your mouth after brushing your teeth to get the full benefits of fluoride. According to a piece in CNET by Katie Teague, she discovered after watching a dentist’s video on TikTok that rinsing your mouth with water after brushing your teeth is not very effective. She began to simply spit out as much toothpaste as she could without swishing water so that the toothpaste could sit for a little longer. However, she still did not exactly understand why. That’s when she decided to speak with Dr. Edmond Hewlett, consumer advisor for the American Dental Association and professor at UCLA School of Dentistry. Source: Electric Teeth/YouTube According to Dr. Hewlett, it’s important to skip rinsing with water after brushing your teeth because fluoride helps make the enamel harder and more resistant to acids that cause cavities. He says that it is the most well-established effective ingredient in toothpaste, so you should always be sure yours has that ingredient in it. “When you measure a person’s...

    Three bottlenose dolphins were rescued from a confined amusement park and now have been released back into the ocean to live out the rest of their days swimming free. Source: Associated Press/Youtube The three dolphins, Johnny, Rocky, and Rambo were rescued from an abusement park resort hotel. Before this, the poor dolphins were forced to perform in a traveling circus. Finally, thanks to an Indonesian sanctuary, they were rescued and have spent the last three years recovering and regaining their health and strength. Johnny, the oldest dolphin, had teeth that were worn down when he was rescued.

When the gate opened, the dolphins looked at the opening and were not too sure about what to do. After about an hour, the dolphins were on their...

    After hoping to remain eligible to play on the PGA Tour calendar, the LIV Golf defectors who hadn't turned in their tour cards have had them revoked. The PGA Tour's new season is due to start in two weeks' time on September 15 but the likes of Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau will not be allowed to tee it up.   In a letter from the PGA Tour obtained by Sports Illustrated, players who hadn't resigned their membership when leaving for LIV - such as Mickelson, DeChambeau, and Pat Perez - were informed their memberships had been revoked for the 2022-23 season. The move comes after rebels were suspended by the Tour as soon as they played in an event of the LIV Golf circuit.  The letter written by Kirsten Burgess, the Tour's vice president, competition administration, read: 'The terms of your contractual commitments to LIV Golf prohibit you from satisfying the material obligations set forth in the regulations and make clear that you have no intention to, and indeed cannot comply with these requirements of membership in the PGA Tour.

    Geopolitical tensions simmered at the US Open on Thursday as Ukrainian Marta Kostyuk refused the customary handshake at the net when Belarusian Victoria Azarenka defeated her 6-2, 6-3 in the second round. The pair exchanged a quick tap of the racket on Court 17 after Kostyuk whacked the ball into the net on the third match point and the three-time Flushing Meadows finalist let out a triumphant roar. 'Well, I wasn't surprised. I don't believe that making a big deal out of it is important. I always shake hands with my opponents,' said Azarenka, who added that Ukrainian Dayana Yastremska had done the same in Washington, DC, last month. 'I cannot force anybody to shake my hand. It's their decision. How did it make me feel? It's not the most important thing in the world right now.' It marked the latest uneasy moment at the year's final major, where Russians, Belarusians and Ukrainians compete alongside one another against the backdrop of military conflict.

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: I have been a lawyer for almost 30 years. Over the last few years, more and more clients or potential clients have come into my office carrying coffee or some other drink. Obviously this creates a potential for a spill or ring on my beautiful desk. Also, eating or drinking is inappropriate and rude in a professional office. I do not eat or drink when clients are present, and I am surprised that some people think this is acceptable. What do you think? GENTLE READER: That these days, owners of expensive desks, even when they are right, would do well to keep a supply of paper towels handy.

    Dear Amy: I am a 35-year-old man, happily living in my hometown after about a decade away. I’m writing because this past weekend, I had a realization: I don’t really like my friends. Post-pandemic, I’ve been hanging with some of my friends from childhood and high school. Don’t get me wrong — these are salt-of-the-earth people, and I don’t want to judge them. But, speaking honestly, I have grown tired of smoking weed and playing Grand Theft Auto. I guess I’m looking for validation, as well as some ideas about how to branch out. Your advice?

    After spending 24 long years in a Ukrainian circus, Masha and Lora, sister bears, were finally set free! These sisters were victims of the circus industry for the majority of their lives. They were split up into two separate cages right next to each other and were so close that they could smell and hear one another but were not able to interact with each other. “They don’t know what is a tree. They don’t know what is a bird. They don’t know what is wildlife,” said World Animal Protection USA. Source: World Animal Protection USA/Youtube While in captivity, the bears were forced to perform in the circus while muzzled, riding motorbikes, and sliding down poles. They weren’t even allowed to comfort each other during these challenging times. Now, for the first time in many years, these beautiful bears will have access to wide, open space and feel the grass beneath their paws. They will be able to explore the environment that they were deprived of for so long and will get to express their natural behaviors. And...

    Climate activists, including members of Extinction Rebellion, participate in a demonstration in front of the Thurgood Marshall US Courthouse against a recent Supreme Court ruling on June 30, 2022 in New York City, United States.Lokman Vural Elibol | Anadolu Agency | Getty Images Americans care about climate change, but don't think that their peers care about it as much as they do. That's the rough takeaway from new research published Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications. Between 80 and 90 percent of Americans underestimate the concern their fellow Americans have for climate change and their support for "transformative" climate change mitigation policies like a carbon tax or 100-percent renewable energy mandates, the research said. Between 66 and 80 percent of Americans support climate change mitigation policies, but Americans think that only between 37 and 43 percent of Americans have this same sentiment, the research found. "Thus, supporters of climate policies outnumber opponents two to one, while Americans falsely perceive nearly the opposite to be true," the report said. In every state and in every demographic category measured, Americans underestimate support for...
    A TIKTOK user and entrepreneur showed off a side hustle that generated $100,000 in revenue in three months. Heather, who runs the account itsheatherstudio, said one of the major keys to her success has been print on demand through Etsy. 1TikTok user itsheatherstudio said she made more than $100,000 in revenue in three months from her Etsy shopCredit: TikTok/@itsheatherstudio In a recent video, Heather explained the upsides of utilizing print on demand. The process allows sellers on sites like Etsy to sell products without printing, packing or shipping any items. Sellers can create and advertise custom designs on things like shirts, hats or mugs, but don't need to own or create any physical inventory. Once an order is placed, the printing and shipping of the product are handled by a third-party supplier.

    Singer Richard Marx recently opened up about why he and his wife, Daisy Fuentes, went vegan, saying, “I don’t want to eat a living thing.” Marx, best known for his 80s and 90s music, is currently on a worldwide tour promoting his upcoming album. Marx told Yahoo Life that he loves to visit different vegan restaurants, bars, and mom-and-pop coffee shops. Source: Richard Marx/Youtube Marx first stopped eating red meat when he was 18 years old and eventually became a pescatarian. However, after watching several documentaries, he began to think about going fully plant-based. He told Yahoo Life that when he and his wife watched Blackfish, a film about orca whales that are captured and held captive, his mind was made up. “There’s a really emotional scene where these a**holes take a baby orca from the water and pull it out of the water and the family of the baby orca start crying — wailing in sadness,” Marx says. “It moved both Daisy and me. I paused the movie. I put my head down and I looked at...

    DEAR ABBY: I am 24 and being married soon. My fiance thinks I’m a virgin, but in reality, I am far from it. We have been saving sex for marriage — at least that’s what he thinks. I don’t know if I should keep this to myself or tell him. Please give me your expert advice. BRIDE-TO-BE DEAR BRIDE-TO-BE: Solid marriages are built on trust. What do you think the fallout will be if this man finds out he has been lied to all this time? He will never again believe what you tell him, and who could blame him? The time to level is now, before the wedding — and if it’s a deal-breaker, que será, será. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend has been hanging out with a group of “friends” since college. He is now 41. The women in this group are unfriendly toward me. They don’t say hello or goodbye or even acknowledge my existence when I am around them. I have talked to my boyfriend about this time and again, and he defends their behavior. He says...
    Sustainable living can sometimes get complicated, and it can be easy to feel like you’re never doing enough. However, it’s important to keep in mind that small swaps can make a big difference. This TikTok video offers a list of eco-friendly ideas that will hopefully inspire you to get creative and make some changes! @eco_og Qucik & easy ways to be more eco-friendly!???? #sustainableshopping #ecofriendly #ecotok #sustainableswaps ♬ Sugar (feat. Francesco Yates) [Extended Mix] – Robin Schulz Eco OG’s first eco-friendly tip is to buy damaged cans of food when you’re grocery shopping. Oftentimes, people avoid these because they don’t look as good, and they usually get thrown out. The second tip is to buy produce that’s not in plastic packaging and bring your own reusable produce bags. Although when buying produce, most people reach for the plastic produce bags that are conveniently located all over the store, if you buy produce every week, that adds up to a total of 200 bags used for produce alone in one year! That might not seem like an incredibly significant number,...

    CNN contributor Phil Mudd disagreed with Don Lemon Thursday about the extent to which Americans care about the Capitol attack, and also dismissed a redacted Mar-a-Lago raid affidavit as “boring.” Mudd joined the host on Don Lemon Tonight for a debate about releasing a partial affidavit that led to a search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence. A judge commented Thursday some of the documents might soon be revealed. The former member of both the CIA and FBI opined documents being sought by the media on the raid of former President Donald Trump’s home would be “boring” if not released in full – although he did not argue against the redactions. He jokingly said a partial document would be “Leave it to Beaver,” whereas a full affidavit would be Sex and the City. After Lemon inquired about what he meant, Mudd explained: I didn’t actually see Leave it to Beaver, but it’s boring. Sex and the City, I did see that. It’s interesting. The documents are going to be boring. How much do I need to explain to you, Don? Mudd argued the...
