    JAKE PAUL was urged NOT to fight Hasim Rahman Jr due to his lack of experience. The YouTuber turned boxer will lock horns with his one-time sparring partner at Madison Square Garden next month. 3Jake Paul is set to throw down with Hasim Rahman Jr on August 6Credit: GETTY 3Rahman Jr's has considerably more fights to his name than PaulCredit: [email protected] 3And Paul's coach BJ Flores has revealed the NYSAC didn't want to sanction the fightCredit: [email protected] Rahman Jr - the son of former heavyweight champ Hasim Sr - will be the first professional boxer Paul has faced during his brief stint as pro. And Rahman's extensive amateur career - in which he had over 100 amateur fights - was a cause of concern for the New York State Athletic Commission before they sanctioned the bout. Paul's head coach, BJ Flores, told Boxing Scene: “The New York State athletic commission advised against it. "They said Rahman was too experienced. Rahman had over 100 amateur fights and has 13 professional fights plus he’s used to fighting bigger guys. READ MORE IN...
    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) hit back at Pete Buttigieg on Sunday night after Biden’s secretary of transportation called out the Florida senator for calling legislation to protect marriage equality a “waste of time.” CNN’s Manu Raju reported last week that Rubio said, “He is a NO on House’s same-sex marriage bill, calling it a ‘stupid waste of time.'” Buttigieg, who is the first openly gay cabinet secretary and is in a same-sex marriage, took issue with Rubio’s characterization of the bill while being interviewed by CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday. “If he’s got time to fight against Disney, I don’t know why he wouldn’t have time to help safeguard marriages like mine,” Buttigieg told the State of the Union host. The remark prompted Rubio to respond by quickly releasing a video on Twitter taking aim at Buttigieg and the bill to offer some federal protections for both same-sex marriage and interracial marriage should the Supreme Court act on Clarence Thomas’s concurrent opinion to Dobbs, which struck down federal abortion rights. Thomas specifically named the cases that legalized same-sex and...
    On Thursday evening, the Jan. 6 committee played stunning footage of Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) running away from a mob of pro-Trump vigilantes that he was seen riling up just hours earlier. Despite the clip clearly showing the Republican lawmaker on the run, nearly 24 hours later, he pledged to a group of young conservative activists that he would not “run” away from a battle. “Hey, listen, I know what I’m talking about because I had them do it to me,” he proudly declared at Turning Point USA’s summer conference in Tampa, Florida, on Friday evening, referring to being called a “traitor” over pushing for “election integrity.” “I objected on Jan 6 last year to the state of Pennsylvania,” he boasted. “And I just want to say to all of those liberals out there and the liberal media, just in case you haven’t gotten the message yet, I do not regret it,” Hawley continued. “And I am not backing down. I’m not gonna apologize, I’m not gonna cower, I’m not gonna run from you.” “I’m not gonna bend the knee,”...
    Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) was defiant Friday during a speech in Tampa, Florida, when he unironically declared he would never “run” from a fight. The comments were made fewer than one calendar day after the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack showed the country video of him quite literally running from danger. Hawley, dressed in jeans and a T-shirt, was addressing a student summit for Turning Point USA, when he made the statement sorely lacking in self-awareness.

    \u201cJ.T. Realmuto on not being able to join the Phillies in Toronto due to his vaccination status:\u201d — NBC Sports Philadelphia (@NBC Sports Philadelphia) 1657593974 "It's an extremely unfortunate situation," Realmuto added. "Obviously, my teammates know how I feel about them, and how bad I want to be out there with them, but it's just unfortunate I'm not able to make the trip." Realmuto's teammate Kyle Schwarber — who leads the National League with 28 home runs so far this season — told WCAU in a separate story that the club has the backs of every unvaccinated player. “Just because we're headed to Toronto doesn’t mean someone is being a bad teammate because they didn’t get [the vaccine], right?” Schwarber told the station. “It all comes down to a personal decision. It’s unfortunate that Canada is not letting people in that will be in a controlled environment, but we can’t tell a government what to do." Schwarber — who's headed to the All-Star Game and will participate in the arguably more popular Home Run Derby — added to...
    Timothy T Ludwig/Getty Images Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills is pursued by Cameron Heyward and T.J. Watt of the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 12, 2021. The oddsmakers at DraftKings have 12 teams ahead of the 50-1 Pittsburgh Steelers in terms of their odds of representing the AFC in Super Bowl LVII, with only the Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Jets and Houston Texans in Pittsburgh’s rear view mirror. But are the Steelers really the 13th-best team in the AFC — on course for a 5- or 6-win season? Kyle Brandt, for one, doesn’t think so. During a segment on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football on July 1 he said: “They’re not gonna go 6-11. They never do, they never will. Here’s what’s gonna happen. Late October, we’re gonna be saying, ‘Wow, look at the Steelers, they’re 6-3….’ As long as the coach is there and the defense is there,” the Steelers will win, he concluded. It’s not blind optimism, either. One can make the argument that each and every position group is as good as — or better...
    Wednesday evening Americans learned of an active shooter situation at a Tulsa, Oklahoma hospital campus. Four people and the shooter died. But those who were keyed into social media soon learned there had been another shooting, at a high school in Los Angeles. And then horrifically, a third: at a Walmart in Pittson, Pennsylvania. An NCRM investigation found at least 24 separate shooting incidents on Wednesday, based on published news reports, but the Gun Violence Archive, which also accesses police reports, documents 60 shootings on June 1. As all of this was unfolding U.S. Senator John Cornyn tweeted, “Not gonna happen,” in response to a far right-wing talk show host’s claim that he is “open to making gun laws more restrictive.” \u201cNot gonna happen\u201d — Senator John Cornyn (@Senator John Cornyn) 1654133872 Cornyn is the Texas Republican charged by Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to make the GOP case in Connecticut Democratic Senator Chris Murphy’s push to put together and pass gun control legislation after two mass shootings that got international attention recently.

    Marceno said those in Lee County who "go into a school [and] present deadly force, they will be met with deadly force immediately. We are going to kill them. We're not gonna hesitate. We're not gonna wait ... You don't get to shoot our children." He added that "haters" who believe he's issuing such statements for publicity "are motivators." "If you have an issue with me saying, 'we meet deadly force with deadly force,' or you have an issue with me saying, 'when someone presents deadly force against our children, we are absolutely going to annihilate and kill them,' then I don't want your vote," Marceno added. "I don't care what you think. And we have no issue in talking about that, because there's nothing else to say." He made no bones about his politics, either, calling Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis "great" and also stating, "We spend over 50 billion dollars in helping out the Ukraine. How much of that money goes to target-hardening our schools, school safety, making sure that our children come...
    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton appeared on Newsmax soon after news broke that a gunman shot and killed 14 students and a teacher at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday. The gunman is also reported to have killed his grandmother before going to the school. The shooting occurred as voters across Texas went to the polls to cast ballots in the state’s primary runoffs. Paxton is facing a Republican primary challenge from George P. Bush. Neither candidate received a majority of the vote in March. Interviewing Paxton, host Chris Salcedo remarked that some liberals have reiterated their calls for gun control measures to be implemented. “When you hear the instantaneous politicization of an incident like this, what goes through your mind as the head attorney of the state of Texas,” Salcedo asked. Paxton, wearing a “Ken Paxton: Texas Attorney General” t-shirt, replied that he wants citizens to be armed and trained in order to handle active shooter situations: Well, look, you know people that are shooting people, that are killing kids, [if] … they’re not following murder laws,...
    A man described by Project Veritas as a senior engineer with Twitter has been caught admitting to an undercover reporter that the company has a strong left-wing bias, and conservatives are routinely censored. Siru Murugesan was filmed by a Veritas operative saying that the company culture at Twitter is extremely far left. 'Like I started working at Twitter and became left,' he said. 'I think it's just like the environment, like you're there and you become like this commie.' Murugesan said that right-wingers were openly censored. Elon Musk said his purchase of Twitter on Friday was 'temporarily on hold'. He has accused the company of a left-wing bias 'Ideologically, it does not make sense like, because we're actually censoring the right, and not the left,' he told the undercover reporter. 'So, everyone on the right wing will be like, 'bro, it's okay to stay, just gotta tolerate it.' The left will be like, no, I'm not gonna tolerate it. I need it censored or else I'm not gonna be on the platform. 'So, it does that on the right. It's...
    Cohosts of The Five reacted giddily to the news that Elon Musk will purchase Twitter for $44 billion on Monday, hailing it as a victory for free speech. The consensus around the table was that Musk will allow Donald Trump to return to Twitter and that the former president will oblige, despite saying he would not rejoin the platform. “I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on TRUTH,” Trump declared, referring to the currently struggling social media platform he launched. “I’m a big Elon Musk fan, and I assume because he’s a genius that this is a good deal for him,” said Geraldo Rivera, who noted Trump’s comments about staying away from the platform even if his permanent ban is overturned. Jeanine Pirro asked, “But why do you think he said it?” “Because he owns Truth Social,” replied Rivera, who predicted Trump would not be sticking to his guns. “Knowing him for so many years, I’ll think he’ll change his mind in 10 minutes.” “He will,” Pirro agreed. “I think this is bad news for Truth...
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) told Laura Ingraham Tuesday night, “Democrats don’t believe in democracy.” Cruz famously objected to the certification of the 2020 presidential election results in Arizona during the joint session of Congress on Jan. 6, 2021. He voted not to certify the results in that state and also Pennsylvania. The senator has also spread false claims about the 2020 election. Before his appearance, Ingraham played a clip of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) saying, “It is absolutely essential for our democracy that we win. I fear for our democracy if the Republicans were ever to get the gavel.” The Fox News host claimed, “She’s already laying the groundwork for the possibility that her party may not accept the results of the midterms if Republicans take over Congress.” Ingraham added, “The ugly truth is, the self-proclaimed defenders of democracy hate our system and they also hate most of the voters. They want the entire Electoral College scrapped.” She accused Democrats of having “their own brand of autocracy,” and told her viewers, “Democrats don’t really think you should exist at all.”...
    Tucker Carlson interviewed Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL) on Wednesday night and it quickly became the brawl it was destined to be. Last week Salazar was asked if the United States should impose a no-fly zone over Ukrainian airspace, which would require shooting down Russian aircraft. “Of course!” she emphatically replied. An incredulous Carlson played the clip for his audience last week. The Fox News host has cautioned against U.S. involvement in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. He replayed the clip before welcoming Salazar to the show, hours after President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed Congress to request more assistance and reiterated his request for a no-fly zone. “So, since you have called for war with Russia, how do you think that war, once it begins, would play out?” Carlson asked. “I think that’s a hypothetical question,” she replied. “I think that we should concentrate, Tucker, on what Zelensky asked Congress today.” Carlson interrupted, stating, “I’m sorry, I can’t–and I’m in no way trying to cut you off, but I can’t let you elide over that. You said we should shoot down Russian planes....
    Committed to his story until the very end, Jussie Smollett protested 'I AM INNOCENT! I AM NOT SUICIDAL!' as he was led away in handcuffs to begin his 150-day jail sentence yesterday for lying to police about being the victim of a racially motivated hate crime. And while the 39-year-old actor kept a straight face throughout his outburst, it sent many others into fits of laughter.  Smollett's performance in the courtroom is now being mercilessly mocked online, with some questioning who the actor thinks is out to get him.  'Bro, chill out. You're not Jeffrey Epstein. You only got a measly 150 days,' one Twitter user said, referring to Epstein's suspicious jail suicide which conspiracy theorists have long thought was a murder to prevent him from ratting out other high profile pedophiles.  Jussie's legal team say they are desperately worried about his safety. They have not, despite requests, clarified who they think wants to hurt him, or why.   'The only thing that made my eyes roll harder than a Twilight movie was Jussie Smollett declaring how totally *not* suicidal he...
    Dee Snider says it's twisted thinking to wonder why he endorses Ukrainians blasting the popular anthem "We're Not Gonna Take It" in their fight against the Russian invaders after he opposed its use by anti-maskers. “I absolutely approve of Ukrainians using ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ as their battlecry,” Snider tweeted. "My grandfather was Ukrainian before it was swallowed up by the USSR after WW2. This can’t happen to these people again!” Snider -- the 66-year-old frontman of the heavy metal pride of Bergen County -- got initial blowback for using the hashtag #F***RUSSIA while condemning all of Russia for the actions of President Vladmir Putan. "Mr Snider, please, hear us out," read one tweet. "I'm a Russian girl born in 1999, barely having a voice in this mess until now. I hate this war, I'm protesting against it & today I got arrested for it. I'm sorry for the pain my country brought upon others. But the young are trying to make a change." “I know you are,” Snider replied. “And change will come from the young and young...
    The magazine added that when a similar protest was held in New York, Snider said he's "aware many people representing many causes use ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ as their battle cry. Some I agree with & some I don’t (anti-vaxxers for example) BUT the song was designed for the listener to 'fill in the blank' (what from whom?) with their own cause.” Anything else? According to the New York Post, Snider has been openly anti-Russia since the days of the Cold War and commented on a photo of him wearing a “Russia Sucks” button onstage back in the late 1970s. “My Ukrainian grandpa would have been so proud!” Snider tweeted Sunday. Image source: Twitter, redacted But when a Twitter user posited that Russian citizens didn't have a choice in the war that President Vladimir Putin started, Snider fired back: My grandfather was Ukrainian when it was taken over by Russia after WW2. My grandmother was Transylvanian when the Russians took over & occupied the Carpathian mountains. Who do you think were...
    What happened to Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin senator running for re-election? Charlie Sykes, editor-at-large at The Bulwark, has a few theories. Sykes tells New Abnormal co-host Molly Jong-Fast that he used to like Johnson, even thought he was one of the smartest guys, but then something Trumpy happened. Subscribe to The New Abnormal on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Amazon Music, or Overcast. “There was a while when I tried to come up with various theories about it, because I was trying to think, how did he get from this normal sort of Wall Street Journal-reading businessman from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, to RonAnon [Ron + QAnon]? What drew him down those rabbit holes?” he says. “He turned out to model himself on Joseph McCarthy, our other legendary senator from Wisconsin.” So, Molly wants to know, what broke his brain? Sykes has a theory: “He's fallen in with a bad crowd... and apparently also lost his mind.” Wisconsin politics, in general, have also changed, says Sykes. “The establishment here decided it was gonna go along and appease the Trumpists. They would...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón admitted Sunday that a two-year sentence in juvenile custody for a transgender woman accused of sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl in a restaurant bathroom was likely not adequate. Last month, 26-year-old Hannah Tubbs was sentenced to two years in a juvenile facility after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl in a Palmdale restaurant bathroom back in 2014, when Tubbs was 17. READ MORE: Oscars To Present 8 Awards Prior To TelecastIn a statement Sunday, Gascón said that he became aware after Tubbs’ sentencing following “extremely troubling statements she made about her case, the resolution of it and the young girl that she harmed.” Gascón’s statement comes after Fox News allegedly obtained jailhouse recordings of Tubbs boasting about avoiding serious prison time. “I’m gonna plead out to it, plead guilty,” Tubbs allegedly told her father in a phone conversation. “They’re gonna stick me on probation, and it’s gonna be dropped, it’s gonna be done, I won’t have to register, won’t have to do nothing.” “While for most people,...
    In a video clip the candidate says, "I'm not interested in takin' anything from anyone. What I wanna make sure that we do is defend the Second Amendment. I wanna make sure that we protect our fellow Texans far better than we're doing right now ... " On his campaign website, O'Rourke says that he thinks "we need to reduce the number of AR-15’s and AK-47’s on our streets" and that "it is far too easy for Texans to get their hands on weapons of war that are designed specifically to kill people in masses in as little time as possible."
    LOS ANGELES — Josh Allen says Giants head coach Brian Daboll taught him how to take charge, connected him with quarterbacks like Tom Brady for conversations on how to improve, and tailored the Bills’ high-powered offense to what his quarterback wanted. That unlocked one of the NFL’s most unstoppable attacks in Buffalo. “He’s not gonna call plays to fulfill himself,” Allen, 25, said of Daboll, his former Bills offensive coordinator, at radio row on Thursday at the Los Angeles Convention Center. “He’s gonna call plays that are gonna help you as a quarterback make the right decision and make the best play possible.” Allen hadn’t found the time to tell Daniel Jones all about Daboll yet. He promised to do so at Thursday night’s NFL Honors Ceremony, where Jones would be in attendance. “Yeah, I told [Jones] I was gonna call him last week and I didn’t. I feel like an asshole!” Allen said with a laugh. “But I think I’m gonna see him tonight, and I’m gonna have a good little talk with him.” ...
    Tony Romo is a great NFL analyst when it comes to predicting plays on the field, but does that skill translate to predicting Tom Brady’s future? Romo and his NFL broadcast partner Jim Nantz joined CBS Morning on Friday to preview this weekend’s AFC Championship game. During the segment, Romo addressed Brady’s retirement rumors and floated the bizarre claim that the Bucs quarterback could pull a Michael Jordan. “I think sneakily, there’s a chance Tom Brady retires and could come back in two years,” Romo said. “This is just crazy, but he’s like a bionic man. He’s not hurt, he’s still playing great, he may need to refresh like Jordan and go two years away and maybe start another challenge.” The difference, however, Jordan retired and came back to the NBA twice in his thirties. Brady is already going to be 45 for the start of the next NFL season. Is it even remotely possible that he could retire and return at the age of 47? In previous offseasons, Brady always scoffed at the idea of retirement, pushing the benchmark...
    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis refused to answer whether or not he has received a COVID-19 booster shot during a press conference on Friday, after former President Donald Trump called politicians who don't publicly disclose their booster shot status 'gutless.'  'That's something that I think people should just make their own decisions on,' DeSantis said.  'I'm not gonna let that be a weapon for people to be able to use. I think it's a private matter.' DeSantis had dodged the same question last month, weeks before Trump's comments this month. 'I've done whatever I did,' DeSantis told Fox Business Network. 'The normal shot.'

    Former President Donald Trump quoted from a glam metal anthem to express his displeasure at his successor's decision-making. Standing before a friendly crowd in Florence, Arizona, the former president struck a defiant tone, revving up the crowd in voicing his refusal to capitulate to the Biden administration "wreaking havoc on our economy, going mandate-crazy, and running neighborhoods ... running roughshod all over this country." "What they're doing is incredible: They've taken away their dignity, they've taken away their liberties, and I say enough is enough, and we are not going to take it anymore," he said, quoting a Twisted Sister song to roaring approval from the audience Saturday evening. GOP ARIZONA GOVERNOR CANDIDATE DROPS OUT HOURS BEFORE TRUMP RALLIES WITH ENDORSED RIVAL Trump warned about the "corrupt, power-hungry lunatics" in the Democratic Party who "are putting corporate profits over the rights of the American people" by implementing vaccine mandates, thereby lining pharmaceutical executives' pockets at the expense of the health and safety of people in the United States.

    When Los Angeles Police Officer Robert Sherock spotted the Metrolink train about a quarter mile away — barreling straight for him and his fellow officers and the pilot they were trying to free from a small plane crashed on the tracks — the entire scenario seemed unreal. “This can’t really be happening,” Sherock remembered thinking. But he also had another thought. “It’s not gonna stop.” Springing into action with seconds to spare, Sherock and fellow officers Christopher Aboyte and Damien Castro wrenched the injured pilot from the cockpit of the plane and dragged him away from the tracks. “Go, go, go, go!” an officer screamed as the train crunched through the single-engine Cessna, which had lost power about 2 p.m. Sunday, forcing its pilot to make an emergency landing on the tracks near San Fernando and Osborne streets, just about a block from the LAPD Foothill police station.

    Dr. Ben Carson appeared on Fox News Monday afternoon to weigh in on the Covid-19 pandemic, specifically the coronavirus testing squeeze, of which he said, “Maybe that’s not a bad thing.” At issue was the fact the Biden administration has yet to finalize the contracts that would provide 500 million free Covid tests to Americans who want them. “People are waiting for tests,” host Martha MacCallum said. “Do you think those tests are gonna arrive in time to serve that need?” “Well, it’s quite clear the tests are not gonna arrive in time,” said the former Trump cabinet secretary. “Maybe that’s not a bad thing because, you know, the more tests you have, the more positive people you’re gonna have. And if you don’t have a good plan for what you’re gonna do with those positive people, it adds more to the confusion.” Carson said the virus is “getting weaker and more contagious” and predicted it would spread far and wide among society. “What are we going to do about that?” he said. “Are we going to be afraid of...
    "Absolutely John, there's no doubt about it," Fauci said. "There's no way I'm gonna walk away from this until we get this under control." "You know we're in a war John. It's kind of like we're halfway through World War II and you decide, well I think I've had enough of this, I'm walking away. You can't do that, you gotta finish it. And we're gonna finish this and get back to normal," Fauci said.
    Sean O’Malley is focusing on what he can control ahead of his UFC 269 bout with Raulian Paiva Saturday night from Las Vegas, NV. Sean O’Malley will once again open up a UFC pay-per-view main card from Las Vegas, NV to close out the UFC’s numbered events schedule at UFC 269. O’Malley, who is better known as “The ‘Suga’ Show,” will be taking on Raulian Paiva with the goal of increasing his winning streak to three-straight in 2021. At 14-1, O’Malley is coming in with a focused mindset and is willing to take on all challengers that the UFC puts in front of him, regardless of where they might sit within the rankings. He elaborated on the notion that he has developed so-called “haters” during his pre-fight media scrum ahead of Saturday night’s mega pay-per-view extravaganza. “I don’t necessarily enjoy having haters but I don’t get sad that I have haters. They’re gonna watch the fight 100 percent. Someone’s not gonna be watching the fights, then I come on the TV and they’re like ‘nope, not gonna watch.’ Like, that’s not gonna...
    “Are you gonna sue the pants off the media?” Beck later asked. But in response, Rittenhouse said, "We’re gonna focus on our number one fight we’re dealing with right now with the [guys who've] been lying, Lin Wood and John Pierce. We’re gonna focus on them right now, but maybe down the line in the future — we don’t know yet — but we’re gonna focus on those liars.” When Beck pressed Rittenhouse about why he was going after Wood first, the teenager answered, "I don’t want to talk much about [Wood], other than he’s a liar, and he’s putting my family in jeopardy,” "We’re getting death threats because of the lies he’s saying. It’s just disturbing," Rittenhouse added. Rittenhouse declined to go into further detail about any pending lawsuit involving Wood or Pierce, but the teenager has recently accused his former lawyers of keeping him in jail for longer than necessary while they raised $2 million for bail through their FightBack Foundation. Rittenhouse spent 87 days behind bars before being released on bond in September 2020. Rittenhouse's mother...
    Travis Scott has broken his silence for the first time following the fatal stampede at his AstroWorld concert last month, but is refusing to take responsibility as he faces a wave of lawsuits. Scott, 30, sat down with podcaster Charlemagne Tha God for an interview published on Thursday morning, speaking out about the November 5 tragedy that left 10 dead in Houston. In the interview, Scott blamed his 'in-ear' person for not urging him to stop the show sooner, and claimed that he wasn't aware of or responsible for the fatal stampede and crowd crush.  'Things happen, you know, and it's just been such a time, and I'm just trying to just really figure things out,' he said when asked why he was breaking his silence.

    While 71.8% of the U.S. population consisting of individuals 18 and older has been fully vaccinated against COIVD-19 (as per the current definition), only 26.3% of that population demographic has received a booster, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Fauci, who serves as the chief medical advisor to President Biden, has been the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for well over three decades. Many Americans have taken issue with vaccination mandates during the pandemic, decrying such requirements as infringements upon individual liberty. But Fauci has said that while it would be preferable for people to get vaccinated voluntarily, if they are not willing to do so, "sometimes you've gotta do things that are unpopular but that clearly supersede individual choices and are directed predominantly at the communal good."

    FOXBORO (CBS) — The Patriots won their sixth consecutive game on Sunday, turning a nail-biter at halftime into a laugher by the final whistle. The 36-13 win over the Titans was the sixth consecutive win for Bill Belichick’s team, moving them back into first place in the division with a chance to slide up to the top spot in the conference before the end of the week. It’s an outstanding place for the Patriots to be, especially considering they started the year with a 2-4 record overall and an 0-4 record at home.

    President Joe Biden denied reports that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is considering settling lawsuits with illegal immigrants separated from their families under the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance policy. Settlement payments of $450,000 to illegal immigrants separated from their families are “not going to happen,” Biden told Fox News’ Peter Doocy during a Wednesday press conference. The president called the initial report from the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) “garbage,” agreeing that the media’s reporting “might incentivize more people to come over illegally.” WATCH: More than 940 illegal immigrant families have filed lawsuits against the U.S. government, alleging that the Trump administration’s policy of separating children from adults with whom they crossed the border caused psychological distress. They are represented by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), whose lead negotiator argued that the illegal immigrants must receive “not only meaningful monetary compensation, but a pathway to remain in the country.” The average requested payout is $3.4 million per family, according to WSJ. The plaintiffs also alleged that the children were denied medical attention and suffered from malnutrition while in government custody....
    The battles between Keyshawn Johnson and Jon Gruden were well-documented during their time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the early 2000s. Despite winning a Super Bowl together, the duo rarely got along and Johnson was often blamed for being immature. Last Friday, the Wall Street Journal shared a 2011 email written by Gruden that included a racist trope to describe NFL Players Association director DeMaurice Smith. “Dumboriss Smith has lips the size of michellin tires,” Gruden wrote, while he was a member of ESPN’s Monday Night Football booth. “What he said about Smith is disturbing,” Johnson said on ESPN Radio’s national morning show. “It’s unacceptable and this is why in this country we are in the position that we are in as human beings, not only human beings, but as African Americans. Because we gloss over these sorts of things and act like it’s not that big of a deal.” Now the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, Gruden claims he doesn’t have a “racial bone” in his body, in an attempt to move on from...

    Stacy Revere/Getty Images Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lambeau Field on October 03, 2021. “Every time I see the highlights of Ben Roethlisberger now it is agonizing—it is excruciating—because we remember how he used to be,” said Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk during his show on Thursday Oct. 7. “The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak because the flesh is old and broken and battered and it’s not getting any better the more games (the Steelers) play this year. “It’s not gonna get better,” agreed co-host Chris Simms, a former NFL quarterback who believes that it’s Roethlisberger—not the offensive line—that has kept the Steelers from being better than 1-3 and in last place in the AFC North. “The biggest mistakes in all three losses are all Big Ben Roethlisberger-related,” offered Simms, without getting into specifics. “You can make the argument that if you eliminate some of his mistakes, they could have won all three of these games or certainly been in position (to win) late in the game.” Simms is also steadfast that...

The team's offense struggled in three games this season, scoring just four touchdowns. Despite that, Steelers offensive coordinator Matt Canada still believes in the team's approach.  Canada told Steelers.com the team was "gonna stick with what we're doing" on offense. Canada understands that's not the answer Steelers fans want to hear, but believes the offense will get it together. "Obviously, that's not the answer and that's not the sexy answer but we believe we're on the right track. We've gotta get some cohesion up front. We're working to get that, and that's not an excuse.

    A TikTok video captures the moment a sea captain was forced to send a sea lion to its death at the fins of hungry orcas after the animal scrambled onto her boat to avoid the pod near Vancouver Island in Canada's Pacific coast.  'An orca looks right up at me,' @nutabull captioned the video. 'Where's my lunch, b****? Give it up now!'  Taken down since it was posted on Sunday, hundreds of commenters on Twitter have put themselves in the woman's shoes, discussing how they would have reacted to the trying situation.  'What the f***,' the woman said, panicked, as the equally-panicked sea mammal clambered up onto the her vessel .

    U.S. Capitol Police Chief Thomas Manger on Friday defended the right of those attending Saturday’s rally outside the Capitol to express their views. During a press briefing with Capitol and DC police officials, Manger was asked if there are any members of Congress who plan to attend the rally in support of those who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 and if he has a response to “the underlying purpose of this rally” in that those attending believe the Jan. 6 rioters are “political prisoners.” Manger said he is not aware of any elected officials who plan to attend that a few members of Congress were invited but declined. He did not say the names of the elected officials. Regarding the meaning of the rally, “you’re not going to like my answer,” said Manger, who went on to say that “everybody’s got the right to free speech. They can believe what they want to believe. I’m there to uphold the rule of law and make sure everybody’s safe.” Security fencing in front of the Capitol and other measures have been...
    Rihanna heads towards boyfriend A$AP Rockys car in LA U.S. stock futures struggle as options expiries loom and S&P 500 fights to hold on to a weekly gain © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Thursday Night Football ended in shocking fashion, as Washington missed a game-winning field goal as time expired, only to get another chance because Giants defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence was flagged for jumping offside. That gave Washington another attempt from five yards closer, the kick was good, and Washington won 30-29. Giants coach Joe Judge said afterward that it would be unfair to pin the loss on Lawrence. “I’m not gonna put this on Dexter Lawrence,” Judge said. “There’s things we all have to do better as professionals, but I’m not gonna put this on any one player.” Judge called the offside penalty “a tough lesson,” not only for Lawrence but for the entire team. Judge’s training camp practices gained notoriety for his requirement that players run laps for penalties, and now Judge’s team has had perhaps...
    The Brooklyn Nets traded Jarrett Allen to the Cleveland Cavaliers as part of a deal that landed them James Harden in the middle of the season. Allen was selected by the Nets in the 2017 NBA Draft and proved to be a formidable center. He averaged 10.1 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 234 games with Brooklyn. He only got to play with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving a handful of times before he was traded to the Cavaliers.

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Monday night that the Senate has "come to an agreement" on the infrastructure bill after months of deadlock. Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., talked about the bill during an interview on "The Ingraham Angle." SCHUMER: WE HAVE COME TO AN AGREEMENT SEN. JOHN KENNEDY: "Well, I can just share with you my perspective Laura. Early on, I was likely yes on this bill. I mean who’s not for infrastructure. I’m for children and prosperity, too. But then I got a copy of the bill and I realized pretty quickly that if you look up stupid stuff in the dictionary, there’s a picture of this bill. They told us it was a real infrastructure bill. It’s not. Only 23% of the bill is real infrastructure. The rest is green new deal and welfare. They told us the bill was paid for. It isn’t. We’re gonna have to borrow maybe up to $400 billion to pay for it. They told us there were no tax increases. There are. My state’s gonna have to pay 1.3 billion dollars...
    The NFL and just about every other stick and ball league in the country have done just about everything they can to force their players to get vaccinated. However, when it comes to the UFC, Dana White says it’s “Never Gonna Happen.” The UFC president, who became the first head of a major American-based sports league to begin hosting live events during the pandemic, went against the grain again, saying that he would “never tell another human being what to do with their body.” (Zhe Gi/Getty Images) “I would never tell another human being what to do with their body. If you want to get vaccinated, that’s up to you. That’s your choice. You’re never gonna hear me say I’m gonna force people to get vaccinated.
