    Rudy Giuliani can’t even get the MAGA sycophants at Newsmax to fully buy the overblown story that he was savagely assaulted at a Staten Island supermarket. The former New York City mayor has recently tripled down on his initial claim that he was on death’s door when 38-year-old ShopRite employee Daniel Gill tapped him on the back at a campaign event this past weekend. Insisting that it felt like “a boulder hit me,” Giuliani has said he felt “tremendous pain” while comparing the back pat to a gunshot. After security video footage showed that Giuliani barely moved after Gill touched him, the initial felony charge of second-degree assault involving a person over 65 was downgraded to misdemeanor assault. Giuliani, however, was upset that Gill was released without bail, expressing concern that the supermarket worker could go on an elderly assault spree. “I worry about this little punk for you, because if he can come and hit me, a 78-year-old man, the next thing he’s going to do is hit you,” he said on a Monday livestream. Appearing on Newsmax’s Greg...
    New York (CNN Business)Editor's Note: This story is part of CNN Business' Nightcap newsletter. To get it in your inbox, sign up for free, here. This afternoon, monetary policy nerds such as myself tuned in to watch the Silver Fox himself explain the Fed's thinking behind its decision to raise interest rates by three-fourths of a percentage point — the most aggressive rate action the bank has taken since 1994. Allow me to summarize Fed Chairman Jay Powell's comments: Inflation's bad. We're doing our best. No one really knows what the heck is going on. Here's the deal: The disastrous inflation report that came out Friday almost guaranteed that the Fed would have to do more than the half-point hike it had previously indicated it would do. Prices surged 8.6%, which was up from the month before, which means, like, they're going the wrong direction. That report was so bad some analysts even expected Powell & his merry economists to go even harder on rate hikes -- why stop at 0.75, just go whole hog and jack them up a...
    London (CNN Business)Russia's increasingly aggressive actions against its European gas customers are taking a toll. The country's natural gas exports have tumbled by more than a quarter since January. But surging prices have kept Russia's coffers bulging as it continues to cut off deliveries.Moscow's gas exports to countries outside of its Commonwealth of Independent States, which includes 11 countries in Central Asia and Eastern Europe, fell nearly 28% in the first five months of 2022, Russian state energy giant Gazprom (GZPFY) said on Wednesday. So far, Gazprom has cut off at least 20 billion cubic meters of its annual gas supplies to customers in six European countries — Poland, Bulgaria, Finland, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands — because they failed to make payments in rubles, a demand President Vladimir Putin made back in March. That amounts to nearly 13% of the European Union's total annual gas imports from Russia, according to data from the International Energy Agency. But James Huckstepp, head of EMEA gas analytics at S&P Global Commodity Insights, told CNN Business that gas prices have risen to an...
    However unnerving Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is, the fight is a long, long way from the titanic, globe-spanning conflict that would constitute a “world war.” For Ukraine, this is an existential conflict for national survival. For the rest of the world, this conflict may seem terrifying, but that’s what all wars look like to anyone paying attention up close—especially one involving a nuclear-armed combatant. The world hasn’t seen a high-intensity conflict between two relatively modern militaries in Europe since World War II. Of course this is a shock to the system. If the U.S. and NATO want to constrain Russia’s actions in Ukraine, there are many options short of full conflict. For instance, during the Korean War, the Soviet Union sent both fighter aircraft and pilots to fly them against U.S. aircraft. This playbook could be repeated with NATO countries contributing equipment and troops. More recently, Russia deployed military “contractors” throughout the eight years of destabilization in Ukraine to provide Moscow with plausible deniability. The U.S. and NATO could likewise deploy contractors, even if they are used in...
    Wordle players have slammed the New York Times again today after the game gave an obscure answer that's been deemed 'political' and 'not even English'. Fans have complained the puzzle has become 'too difficult' since the US newspaper took it over with today's answer arguably the most tricky yet. Gamers took to Twitter to say the answer - a Hindi word that's in the Oxford English Dictionary - was used to 'too political'. Wordle, which only offers one puzzle per day to keep fans hooked, has amassed millions of players since it came online last October. It was created by New York based Welsh software engineer Josh Wardle for his girlfriend Palak Shah, who loves word puzzles.  At the beginning of November, the simple game – which involves guessing a five-letter word in six tries – had only 90 players; now there are said to be three million. However, since the American newspaper bought the game for a seven-figure sum, many players have complained the answers have become more difficult, obscure, and pretentious. Wordle players have slammed the New York Times...
    A GIRL and her dad were left rocked by a DNA test that shockingly revealed he wasn't her biological father like they both were led to believe. The girl decided to surprise her mum, who was adopted, and order her an ancestry kit so she could trace her biological family. She bought one for her dad too, but never imagined the results would reveal a 30-year long secret. 2A girl and her dad were left rocked when a DNA test revealed a family secret hidden by her mum for 30 yearsCredit: TikTok/@sincerelysapphic TikTok user @sincerelysapphic shared her story online, in a video that has been watched over 95k times, as she reached out to others who may have been through a similar situation. She explained that she and her dad found out at the same time that he wasn't her biological father - something her mum knew but chose not to reveal and kept to herself for three decades.

    Amid a time of significant vaccine hesitancy among Americans, Dr. Anthony Fauci explained to Rachel Maddow that it is crucial that more people get vaccinated against Covid-19 in order to prevent the emergence of new variants. Speaking about the country’s vaccination rates, Maddow asked, “If vaccination doesn’t prevent us from being able to pass the infection to other people… should we still understand that vaccinating a larger and larger proportion of the population is our best path toward heading off the prospect of the lambda variant or other, even scarier variants that might emerge from this virus, in the future?” Fauci replied, “The answer to the question is – absolutely – vaccination will prevent that.” His elaboration is worth quoting at length: It will go a long way to preventing that because remember, when you get vaccinated, even though you get breakthrough infection, the overwhelming majority of the people don’t even get infected. In those, that do get infected, that’s when you get the situation of passing it on to someone else. But if you allow the virus to freely...
    THERE are few things more frustrating than coming across a piece of clothing you love - only for it to be sold-out in your size. Luckily, a Primark worker has revealed how to still get your hands on the coveted item. 2A Primark worker has revealed what to do if you can't find an item of clothing in your sizeCredit: TikTok/@pontasaurus In a post on TikTok, Georgia Pontin recommended only using her handy tip for times when the store isn't too busy. The social media user said: "If you find something that you really like but they don't have your size in stock at one store, then you can ask one of the members of staff to call another store and see if they have it. "Obviously you would have to go pick it up, they won't deliver it to the store." She added: "There's no guarantee that a staff member is going to do it for you, but it's always best to check if you really, really want this product." I literally saw someone doing this the other day.TikTok...
    Earlier this year, when Fox News fired at least 16 digital editorial staffers, the network claimed it was a mere “restructuring” effort. But recent job listings posted by the network prove the layoffs were an “ideological purge” meant to keep remaining employees “in line” as the digital properties move further right, both current and impacted Fox News staffers told The Daily Beast this week. The January sackings included senior staffers like politics editor Chris Stirewalt, who’d been tasked with defending the network’s accurate election night projection for Joe Biden to win Arizona—a projection which angered then-President Donald Trump and his allies and sent a substantial portion of MAGA viewers running over to rival outlet Newsmax. A dozen current and former staffers told The Daily Beast that the layoffs were a “concerted effort to get rid of real journalists,” led by Fox’s new digital chief Porter Berry, a Sean Hannity acolyte who has quickly remade the network’s digital properties more in the image of its conservative, culture war-heavy opinion programming.Justin BaragonaContributing [email protected]@thedailybeast.comDiana FalzoneContributing [email protected] a tip?

    A celebrity doctor has come under fire after giving his shoe designer husband the COVID-19 vaccine even though he wasn’t eligible to receive it. Jake Deutsch, 47, the founder of Cure Urgent Care clinics in New York City, gave himself and partner Brian Atwood the second dose of the Moderna vaccine last week at their luxury apartment in Hudson Yards, social media posts published by the NY Post show. Atwood, whose luxury footwear has been worn by the likes of Laga Gaga and Zendaya, posted a video to Instagram last week, writing: ‘Getting my second dose of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine!!!' ‘FYI: I am lucky they have additional leftover doses at the end of the day!!!’ Atwood, 53, continued in his post.   In New York State, only essential workers such as police and teachers, are currently eligible to receive the vaccine, in addition to residents over 65. Those with underlying health conditions will be eligible to get a shot from Monday. Furthermore, a post on the website for Deutsch's Cure Urgent Care clinics states: ‘We are not currently offering the COVID...
    A viral TikTok video from last year showing Subway tuna-mayonnaise being made has resurfaced as the fast food chain is hit with allegations that the product doesn’t include any tuna - or even fish. The short video, shared by a user named @highimmar in June 2020, shows a Subway worker as they prepare the sandwich for customers by dunking a frozen block of the tuna in a bowl and mixing it with mayonnaise. The employee takes the tuna from vacuum-sealed packaging labeled as ‘flaked light tuna in brine’. The ingredients on the packaging read: 'tuna, water, salt'.  It comes as Subway pushes back after a lawsuit filed against the company on January 21 claimed the tuna sandwiches do not contain real tuna.  Scroll down for video  A Subway employee last year shared this video of themselves preparing the company's tuna salad from a frozen package.

    A South Dakota nurse who cares for COVID-19 patients says one of the hardest parts of her job is convincing a number of those who are critically ill that the deadly virus is actually real. After sharing a thread of her experiences to Twitter over the weekend, nurse Jodi Doering appeared on CNN’s New Day on Monday to describe how many of her patients are still in denial about coronavirus, willing to believe almost anything else has made them sick. ‘I think the hardest thing to watch is that people are still looking for something else and they want a magic answer, and they don't want to believe that COVID is real,’ she told the network. ‘People want it to be influenza, they want it to be pneumonia, we’ve even had people say, “I think it could be lung cancer.”’ She continued: ‘Even after the positive test results come back, they still don’t want to believe it.’ Doering added that, in some cases, her patients’ dying words have been: ‘This can’t be happening, it’s not real.' Nurse Jodi Doering...
    An analysis piece in the Washington Post stated journalists should treat the leaked emails allegedly recovered from Hunter Biden’s laptop as a foreign disinformation campaign, even if the claim lacks evidence. “Take a step back, and the Russian interference of 2016 holds valuable lessons on what to do and what not to do in 2020,” wrote Thomas Rid in the Washington Post under the paper's "Perspective" section. “We must treat the Hunter Biden leaks as if they were a foreign intelligence operation — even if they probably aren’t.” “What an incredible admission in the Washington Post, wow. The hubris it must take to issue journalistic marching orders this contrived in full view of the public,” Daily Caller editor Geoffrey Ingersoll said of the Washington Post’s article on Twitter.

    There are few morbid topics subject to greater speculation than the religious loyalty of President Donald Trump’s “base.” Why an alarmingly large amount of Americans refuse even to entertain any criticism of Trump deserves scrutiny from political scientists, psychologists and perhaps horror novelists working in the school of Edgar Allan Poe. What is abundantly clear is that no matter who votes for Trump, he and the Republican Party on the national level have no interest in governing on the behalf of living human beings — with the exception of ensuring that a tiny minority of billionaires and multimillionaires enlarge their investment portfolios. Trump evinces no concern for Americans dying of the coronavirus, racist violence or any other malady or injustice. He demonstrates no regard for health care professionals courageously trying to save their patients from dying, and appears cruelly indifferent to the struggles of millions of workers whose livelihoods have been destroyed by COVID-19. Needless to say, Trump also shows contempt for Black Lives Matter, immigrants and anyone who opposes his re-election, which at this moment (and throughout his presidency) is more than half of the...
