At their request I pulled over when safe to do so," the thread began.Read More"After I stopped two officers ran towards either side of the car, one fist clenched banged on my window and tried opening the car door.

    Getty Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse. With the NBA season wrapping up for the Los Angeles Lakers, Frank Vogel appears to be entering his final days as head coach. Once the season officially ends, the team will likely be launching a search for their next head coach. They could look at some candidates who are available now but they could also wait until the postseason is over and try to poach a coach from a playoff team. There have already been popular rumors linking the Lakers to Doc Rivers and Quin Snyder but perhaps they could target a coach nobody is talking about. There’s no reason to believe that Nick Nurse wants to leave the Toronto Raptors. They have a good team and he led them to a championship in 2019. In four seasons with the team, he’s had a losing record once. However, Nurse hired Andy Miller of Klutch Sports to represent him in 2020. LeBron James and Anthony Davis are two of Klutch’s biggest clients. Perhaps the Lakers could rely on the Klutch connection to...
    The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that no cases of the new omicron variant of COVID-19 have been identified in the country as of Friday night. The agency said it was following details on the new variant, which was first reported in South Africa and is feared to be more infectious than previous variants. The CDC classified omicron as a 'variant of concern.'  'We are grateful to the South African government and its scientist who have openly communicated with the global scientific community and continue to share information about this variant with the US Department of Health and Human Services and CDC,' the CDC said in a statement. 'We are working with other US and global public health and industry partners to learn more about this variant, as we continue to monitor its path.' The agency added that omicron would be 'identified quickly' if it appears in the US as the virus has popped up in several European countries, Israel, Hong Kong and Australia.  The CDC's statement comes as Dr. Anthony Fauci, the US top health expert, said he...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci said Saturday morning that he would not be shocked to learn that the COVID-19 omicron variant is already in the U.S. In an interview on NBC's "Weekend TODAY" show, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director told co-hosts Kristen Welker and Peter Alexander that the strain has a large number of mutations that would suggest it could potentially evade immune protection and that scientists can predict it will be more transmissible.  NO CASES OF COVID-19 OMICRON VARIANT IDENTIFIED YET IN US, CDC SAYS "We don't know that yet, but you have to be careful and assume that that's the case. It also has a bunch of mutations that would suggest it could evade the protection, for example, of monoclonal antibodies and perhaps even convalescent plasma for people who've been infected and recovered and possibly vaccine. These are all ‘maybes,’ but the suggestion is enough," he said.  National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci testifies before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee about the ongoing response to the COVID-19...

    Savannah Rychcik March 23, 2021 0 Comments Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) is telling supporters of the “Defund the Police” movement they should not be shocked by an increase in violent crime. “There has been extended systematic attacks on our police and law enforcement professionals for years, calling them racist and bigoted and prejudiced, demanding that they be defunded and replaced with social workers,” Cotton said during a hearing on gun violence Tuesday. He added, “When you condemn the police… when you make it harder to do their job, you shouldn’t be surprised that criminals take advantage of the opportunities that follow and that crime rises and, in particular, violent crime rises.” Watch part of the hearing below: At Senate hearing on gun violence, Sen.

    Despite successfully creating their own “Big Three” of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden, it seems like the Brooklyn Nets aren’t done yet in upgrading their roster. Though trading for Harden almost required them to pay the king’s ransom to the Houston Rockets, the Nets are still dreaming of adding another big name to their roster during the 2020-21 NBA season. One of the superstars who are currently being linked to Brooklyn is veteran center Andre Drummond of the Cleveland Cavaliers. According to an unnamed Western Conference scout who spoke to Sam Amick of The Athletic, he “would not be surprised” if Drummond ends up joining forces with Durant, Irving, and Harden in Brooklyn this season. However, the scout also added that the chances of Drummond-to-Net rumors becoming a reality depend on whether the Cavaliers will agree to buy out his contract after the 2021 trade deadline or not. “They’re really small. (Jordan) doesn’t play a lot (20.3 minutes per game), and when he’s out (they’re small),” the scout said, as quoted by Brad Sullivan of Cavaliers Nation. “So...
    William Barr, the former U.S. attorney general, said in an interview that aired Monday that he was not surprised to see "the kind of violence" that occurred at the Capitol earlier this month, and said questions about the election "precipitated the riots." Barr said that most people at the Jan. 6 rally were exercising their First Amendment rights, but a "substantial group" was in the wrong when it breached the Capitol. CLICK HERE FOR THE FOX NEWS APP Democrats have long suggested that Barr acted as President Trump’s personal lawyer during his tenure, but it seemed to many that he exited office at the low point of his relationship with Trump back in December after stating that the Department of Justice uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud.  DEMS DIDN'T ALWAYS CONDEMN VIOLENCE Barr did not tip his hand on whether or not he thought Democrats were correct in their assertions that Trump’s rhetoric incited the mob to act. CLINTON SUGGESTS PUTIN PLAYED ROLE IN RIOT "I’ll leave it to the people who are looking into the genesis of this to say whether incitement was...
    More On: Coronavirus Hospital offers workers $500 bonus — to get COVID vaccine US private payrolls post first decline in 8 months as COVID-19 soars Players’ commitment allowing St. John’s to navigate COVID-19 chaos Congressman Kevin Brady tests positive for COVID-19 between vaccine doses Dr. Anthony Fauci said that it’s likely that the highly contagious, new strain of COVID-19 has already become more widespread throughout the country than currently known. The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said he would be “very surprised” if the new variant that first emerged in the UK hasn’t already reached “several more states.” “I think it’s pretty clear that if it’s in places like California, and New York and Colorado… that pretty soon it’s going to be in several more states,” Fauci told Newsweek on Tuesday. The new variant — which has been confirmed in at least five states — is thought to be around 70 percent more contagious than other strains. “We take that very seriously. Because if you have greater transmissibility, you will get more cases,” Fauci said....
    (KDKA) — The Pittsburgh Steelers were the NFL’s last undefeated team, winning their first 11 games. They’ve since lost three of four, including two games to teams with losing records. The Steelers have looked like a completely different team since the streak ended. And some of it can be blamed on the running game, or the lack thereof. The Steelers had a 100-yard rusher in four of the first five games and at least 100 yards rushing in all five games. Since then they’ve not had a single 100-yard rusher and topped the 100-yard mark as a team just once. But they’ve had multiple games with under 50 yards on the ground, including against the Dallas Cowboys (46), Cincinnati Bengals (44), and the Washington Football Team (21). These are all below-.500 teams. They haven’t faired much better against playoff-caliber competition. The passing games has been better over the last month. But it hasn’t been great. And these offensive issues don’t bode well for a possible Steelers playoff run. “They will not go very far, because they’ve played two good quarters...
    In a recent interview, President Donald Trump teed off on Attorney General Bill Barr over a lack of indictments over the investigation into the origins of the Russia probe, “and that includes Obama and that includes Biden.” Former President Barack Obama reacted to that in an appearance on Pod Save America Wednesday. Former Obama NSC spokesman Tommy Vietor asked the former president, “Is it weird for you when he tweets that you should be indicted?” [email protected]: Is it weird for you when Donald Trump tweets that you should be indicted? @BarackObama: pic.twitter.com/zlGu6iipEJ — Pod Save America (@PodSaveAmerica) October 15, 2020 Obama responded, “This is something that even his, you know, his fellow Republicans tend to just pretend doesn’t happen… They kind of dodge reporters when they’re asked about it.” “The allegations are so absurd that even Republican-controlled committees looking into it have dismissed them. And, you know. Attorney General Barr has dismissed them,” he continued. Obama said what Trump is doing is part of a larger problem of his “politicization of the criminal justice system”: “That is...
    NOBODY should be surprised that the instant Britain had second thoughts about allowing the Chinese electronics company Huawei into the UK’s 5G network, the Chinese government instantly resorted to hard-line bullying tactics. Britain will “bear the consequences” said Beijing’s ambassador to the United Kingdom. 1The UK should not be bullied by ChinaCredit: Reuters This is not new. When the David Cameron government took power in 2010, China set about putting the relationship on the exact footing that they wanted. A trade mission by Cameron in 2010 came away with a humiliating zero trade deal. In 2011, their Vice Premier told us to “stop finger-pointing” on human rights. Then when Cameron and his deputy PM Nick Clegg met the Dalai Lama, China responded by cancelling every senior ministerial and official meeting for over a year. We were frozen out. In 2013 Cameron buckled, publicly kowtowing to China, and publicly asking them to invest in Britain. As for the Dalai Lama? We had “turned the page” on that, said number 10. When the Chinese Premier, Li Keqiang, was due to visit in...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Tuesday that Americans could see upward of 100,000 new COVID-19 cases per day if the resurgence of the virus continues along its current trajectory. What are the details? Fauci, the country's top infectious diseases expert, told senators that the United States could see the number of COVID-19 infections skyrocket. In remarks before the Senate Health Committee, Fauci said the country is clearly headed in the "wrong direction" considering the "average number of daily cases" continues to rise. "We're going in the wrong direction if you look at the curves of the new cases," he said. "We need to do something about that, and we need to do it very quickly." He added, "[The overall death toll is] going to be very disturbing, I will guarantee you that because when you have an outbreak in one part of the country, even though in other parts of the country they're doing well, they're vulnerable. "I would not be surprised if we...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci made a rare appearance Tuesday, speaking on Capitol Hill to issue a stern warning about the coronavirus crisis. “We are now having 40-plus thousand new cases a day,” Fauci, the top infectious diseases expert at the National Institutes of Health, told Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). “I would not be surprised if we go up to 100,000 a day if this does not turn around.” Right now nearly 2.7 million people in the U.S., at minimum, have been infected with the coronavirus. Deaths are just under 130,000. CDC Chief Dr. Robert Redfield last week said he believes the actual number of cases could be ten times higher. Watch Dr. Fauci: Fauci: “We are now having 40-plus thousand new cases a day. I would not be surprised if we go up to 100,000 a day if this does not turn around.” https://t.co/vAOmsWGPI6 pic.twitter.com/axVltEgQaS — CBS News (@CBSNews) June 30, 2020
