    A New York Post interview with a costumed rioter conducted outside the Senate chamber of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 was taken down by YouTube Monday. An interview with Aaron Mostofsky, who is now in prison for breaching the building, was posted the day of the riot. In the video, Mostofsky declared his belief the election was stolen – while dressed as a caveman. “We were cheated,” he said from inside the Capitol during the riot. “I don’t think 75 million people voted for Trump. I think it was close to 85 million.” Mostofsky, who hails from New York City, added he believed Trump won the state. “I think certain states that have been red for a long time turned blue and were stolen, like New York,” he said, adding that he entered the “to express my opinion as a free American that this election was stolen.” The video was live on YouTube from Jan. 6 of last year until Monday, when the Post reported it was deleted. YouTube told one of the Post’s reporters the Mostofsky interview...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday the Biden administration is working with manufactuers to ensure baby formula makes it back on empty shelves as frantic parents work to ensure their children are fed. 'Ensuring the availability of these products' is a 'priority' for the Food and Drug Administration, Psaki said at her daily press briefing, noting 'they're working around the clock to address any possible shortage.' The shortage was exacerbated by the FDA's shutdown of an Abbott Nutrition facility in Sturgis, Michigan. Abbott is a major producer of baby formula. Three brands were recalled because of potentia bacterial infections, including Salmonella. Psaki defended the call, saying the oversight agency was doing its job to protect people.  'The FDA issued a recall to ensure that they're meeting their obligation to protect the health of Americans, including babies,' she said. 'That's their job.'

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — As the weather gets warmer, more bike security patrols are coming to Center City. While they won’t be armed, the hope is they’ll give people a greater sense of security. “You never know what’s going to happen, when it’s going to happen, you’re always on the lookout,” said Jacarra Driggins of Philadelphia.

    Fox News host Trey Gowdy invited Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., to "Sunday Night in America" to give her insights on the upcoming Supreme Court nomination after Justice Stephen Breyer announced his retirement at the end of this term.  During the 2020 campaign, President Biden promised to nominate a Black woman to the nation's highest court, and he reaffirmed that promise after Breyer's announcement. Following heated Senate hearings for Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett, Blackburn hoped that any upcoming hearing can return to a more respectful affair.

    A columnist with The Los Angeles Times has declared that it is acceptable to ridicule the unvaccinated Orange County deputy district attorney for dying of COVID-19, writing: 'mockery is not necessarily the wrong reaction'. Michael Hiltzik, the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and author, on Monday turned his attention to the death of Kelly Ernby, 46. Ernby, a rising Republican star, died on January 2 of COVID-19.   Her husband, Axel Mattias Ernby, has since denounced his wife's choice to spurn the vaccination, and rally against vaccine mandates. 'She was NOT vaccinated. That's the problem,' he said, according to screenshots of his comments shared on social media.    Her death was greeted with derision on social media, and Hiltzik said it was appropriate. 'Mockery is not necessarily the wrong reaction to those who publicly mocked anti-COVID measures and encouraged others to follow suit, before they perished of the disease the dangers of which they belittled,' he wrote. Kelly Ernby, 46, died of COVID-19 on January 2. She is pictured pre-pandemic, in November 2019, speaking against vaccine mandates in California, arguing that compelling vaccinations against chicken...
    PBS News White House Correspondent Yamiche Alcindor said Tuesday that Republicans she spoke with said they wanted to change voting laws to ensure “that Republicans win.” She made the comments during an evening panel segment with MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace during a discussion on the 2020 election. “Is there a way to even try, at some point, to really, I think, stave off what is becoming increasingly clear a Republican Party that is going to be more focused on making sure that Republicans get elected by any means necessary, and not looking at sort of how can we as a society work together to have fair voting laws?” Alcindor said. “When I talk to Republicans — Republican voters — they are very interested in just trying to find people who are loyal to the Trump brand, who are going to try and find a way to change the voting laws in this country to make sure Republicans win rather than earning the vote, they’re trying to make sure they can install people,” Alcindor added. She did not specify whether she had featured...

    CHRISTMAS is the season of goodwill, generosity and giving - but what do you do if you receive a present from a well-meaning friend that you know you won't use?

    Former White House adviser Stephanie Cutter warned on Wednesday that Democrats faced a challenging road in 2022 if they allowed Republicans to “become the party of parents.” She made the comment during a segment with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, who said Virginia Democrats received “ghastly” numbers in Tuesday’s election, which included Republican Glenn Youngkin toppling Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the race for Virginia governor. “In the Northern Virginia suburbs there was a chip,” Todd said, alluding to Republican margins in the region. “In the other suburbs, it was certainly more than that. Here’s what I haven’t seen in almost a decade is — when are Democrats going to chip away in rural America? They’re going to have to start trying because the numbers were ghastly.” Todd’s comment led Cornell Belcher to opine, “America, especially rural America — they make sense of their lives through the prism of their values and their religiosity, and we are not connecting with them on that.” The remark prompted Cutter to hone in on the issue of education, which played a significant role in McAuliffe’s defeat. McAuliffe said in September...

    A Texas mother's dying wish before she died of COVID-19 was that her four children get vaccinated against the virus. After a week-long trip at church camp, Lydia Rodriguez, 42, of Galveston, Texas, and other members of her family tested positive for the coronavirus. Rodriguez hadn't been vaccinated because she thought her body was strong enough to fight COVID-19 without the vaccine but - by the time she wanted the vaccine it was too late, reported The Washington Post.  Instead, she was placed on a ventilator, her cousin Dottie Jones told The Washington Post. The mother-of-four lost her husband, Lawrence, to the virus at the beginning of August, and before she lost her own battle to it Monday.

    A gift-card display at a Publix supermarket.Jeff Greenberg | Universal Images Group | Getty Images If you're like many Americans, you could be sitting on a small financial windfall. A new Bankrate.com survey finds that more than half of adults — 51% — currently have unused gift cards, vouchers and store credits. In total, that adds up to approximately $15 billion in unused money. The average value per person of those unused credits: $116. What's more, many people — 73% — have left those funds untouched for a year or more.

    Among the best consequences of the 2020 election was Ron Wyden and Bernie Sanders being in charge of two of the most powerful Senate committees. President Joe Biden has made it as clear as he possibly can that he's not going to accept a bipartisan infrastructure proposal that includes a hike of the gas tax. That highlights the essential problem of getting a deal done: how it's going to be paid for. With interest rates continuing at record lows and a U.S. economy primed to be unleashed, that shouldn't be the main hangup. The money is there to be had cheaply, and the super wealthy are there to finally be forced to pay taxes. Republicans will refuse to either take on more national debt, or to allow taxes to be raised on the people who can afford it. "The President has been clear throughout these negotiations: He is adamantly opposed to raising taxes on people making less than $400,000 a year," White House spokesman Andrew Bates said on Friday. "After the extraordinarily hard times that ordinary Americans endured in 2020—job losses,...
    Vaccine passports have been banned in Texas to ensure people 'have the freedom to go where you want without limits,' the governor announced - following an example set by the Republican governors of Florida and Alabama. Greg Abbott, governor since 2015, signed the bill into law on Monday. 'Texas is open 100 per cent, and we want to make sure that you have the freedom to go where you want without limits,' he said in a video posted online.  'The Texas Legislature passed a law that I'm about to sign that prohibits vaccine passports in Texas. 'No business or government entity can require a person to provide a vaccine passport or any other vaccine information as a condition of receiving any service or entering any place.' Greg Abbott, the governor of Texas, on Monday signed a bill into law banning the use of vaccine passports by businesses or local government. Any entity that requires them could lose their licenses or permits under Abbott's law Abbott thanked the Texas legislature for passing the bill, which he signed into effect...
    President Joe Biden interrupted a speech in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Tuesday to speak to two young girls in the audience. Biden made a face and pointed at the two young girls and said, “I have got to make one check here” and left the stage to walk into the crowd. When he returned to the podium, Biden continued, “I just had to make sure that two girls got ice cream when this was over.” The crowd laughed. “Imagine how excited you would be when you are four, almost five-years-old, coming to hear a president speak,” he said. “My lord. In my faith, we call that purgatory.” Biden spoke in Tulsa to recognize the 100 year anniversary of the massacre in the Greenwood neighborhood in Tulsa in 1921. “The events we speak of today took place 100 years ago, and yet I’m the first president in 100 years to come to Tulsa,” Biden said, apparently forgetting that former President Donald Trump held a campaign rally in Tulsa in June 2020. Former President George H.W. Bush also visited Tulsa in 1992. After...
    Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) clashed with Fox News anchor Bret Baier Thursday on “Special Report” in a heated interview about the network’s coverage of the 2020 presidential election results. Cheney said, “We all have an obligation, and I would say Fox News especially, especially Fox News has a particular obligation to make sure people know the election wasn’t stolen.” Baier said, “We have said that numerous times.” Cheney said, “Bret, I’m going to answer your question. Fox News needs to make sure —” Baier said, “If you are mentioning Fox News, this show has said that numerous times.” Cheney shot back, “Bret, you are doing the interview. I’m answering the question.” Baier said, “Congresswoman.” Cheney continued, “We need to make sure that the American people recognize and understand that the election wasn’t stolen, that we shouldn’t perpetuate the big lie, and that there is real danger. I have worked in countries around the world where we don’t have peaceful transition of power. All of us who are elected officials have got to make sure that we obey and abide by the oath that we swore to the Constitution.” Baier said, “I understand.” Cheney added, “And peaceful transition of power is key...
    And just like that, Ramadan, the holy month Muslims worldwide look forward to each year, has come to an end. With today being the last day of fasting for many across the globe, special meals are being prepared to celebrate the holiday of Eid-al-Fitr. Eid-al-Fitr literally means the “holiday of breaking the fast.” It follows a full moon marking the end of Ramadan, during which Muslims abstain from food and drink every day for 30 days, from sunrise to sunset. Throughout Ramadan, families and people of different backgrounds each have traditions and foods they are accustomed to eating to break their fast or have their Iftar. Being the joyous holiday it is, Eid is no different. Celebrations are big and the meals eaten are some of the most delicious and fanciest meals Muslims eat all year. People celebrate a month of reflection, peace, and control with special meals that vary culture by culture and family by family, but one thing remains the same: the idea to start the day off with something sweet. Traditionally on Eid, the day begins with a morning prayer as...

Her comments come as student loan debt  has continued to grow over the past decade. Tuition and fees at community colleges averaged around $3,730 during the 2019-2020 school year.

    On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Cross Connection,” Rep. Jahana Hayes (D-CT) stated that “there are lots of things that need to happen before schools open and I would be comfortable with it.” And it will cost around $250 billion for schools to be safely reopened. Hayes said, “I am very encouraged that the Biden administration has made reopening schools a top priority. However, I would like to see, first of all, educators assigned as essential workers and have access to the vaccine. I want to make sure that there is money for state and local governments to provide personal protective equipment, which teachers generally are buying out of their own pockets. I want to make sure that they have access to testing, and there’s a contingency plan for when there’s an outbreak. And equally as important, teachers need to have professional development for virtual learning and kids have to have a digital connection to make sure that if there has to be an interruption in back-to-school, that they can continue learning. … I’m encouraged that the Biden administration is listening and...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — New Cubs President of Baseball Operation Jed Hoyer on Wednesday called reports that the Cubs are extensively shopping catcher Willson Contreras “fictional.” He also said money was not the main reason behind the trade of Yu Darvish to the San Diego Padres =- even though the Cubs are expected to save more than $50 million by moving his contract for Zach Davies and four young prospects. Hoyer said the move is about looking to the future as this current run comes to an end. “Do we need to make some moves with the future in mind after six years of every single move being directed on the present? Yes. We kept getting more prospects, and we kept spending more money on this team, and so, we’re at that time right now,” Hoyer said. “And I guess that’s what I would say is are we going to be competitive? Absolutely. But are we gong to have an eye on the future and try to make sure that we continue to bolster our farm system and make sure that...
    An MSNBC contributor said on-air Thursday that Republicans are using the coronavirus to “kill as many people as possible.” "I understand, I mean, the real blame here is Mitch McConnell, is the Republicans, is the president, is a party that does not want to help people, that is working on one side to actually make sure that the pandemic kills as many people as possible,” former New York Times columnist Anand Giridharadas said. “That seems to be the logical consequence of their policy and then to make sure that all the people who managed to survive it despite their policy suffer economically and beyond."

    After a season of doubts, in the middle of an ongoing horror, there finally seems to be hope ahead. Not just the hope generated by the election and its outcome, but the hope of vaccines that can finally bring the nation—and the world—out from under the cloud of COVID-19. Both the mRNA vaccine made by Pfizer and that of Moderna have reported efficacy rates of nearly 95%. The vaccine created by Oxford and manufactured by AstraZeneca appears to be not quite so effective, but still better than many hoped at the outset, and there is still data to be crunched. Behind these are coming vaccines from Johnson & Johnson, and Novavex, and Inovio, and dozens of others.  As the calendar turns toward 2021, it seems that there really will be multiple safe and effective vaccines available. Fears that it might be impossible to build an immunity to the new coronavirus, and that the world might be consigned to an endless cycle of surge after surge, have proven unfounded. Right now, in November 2020, cases are still rising, hospitals are overrun, and there is a real chance...

    During his October 6 press conference about COVID-19, Governor Jared Polis suggested that the best way to make sure rising hospitalization numbers don't get out of control is to redouble safety protocols as we head into colder weather and the holiday season. But that's not happening, judging from visits to numerous Denver area stores over recent weeks: Many of the procedures put in place months ago to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus have fallen by the wayside. For instance, an overwhelming majority of retail outlets appear to have stopped tracking the number of people in the store at a given time. Likewise, sanitizing shopping carts, cash registers, conveyor belts, credit-card touch pads and the like is happening with much less frequency. And mask use among employees, while infinitely better than it was during the early days of the pandemic, has literally started to slip.Related Stories Polis Rips Trump as Terrible COVID-19 Example Jared Polis's Mom on Trump Racism and New Hate Groups Film Previewing Colorado's New COVID-19 Notification Phone App We've sighted the slippage in such major retailers...

    Wednesday, during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” White House chief of staff Mark Meadows defended President Donald Trump’s remarks to Bob Woodward about his efforts to prevent a panic in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Meadows, Trump’s comments were a show of “transparency.” “I think any great leader, what they do is they take information that they have, they make sure that they vet it with, in this case, it was with their advisers, both doctors and those within the White House to actually make sure that we made prudent decisions,” Meadows explained. “But what we — you don’t want to do is create panic. But at the same time, it was an all hands on deck. I can tell you, not only did that happen in January and February, but when I came on board in March, it was around-the-clock, vigilant effort to make sure that this president did everything he could to address it.” “But I can also say that what we know now about the virus is different than what...
    Voters casting absentee ballots in this year's election must take extra care to make sure their vote is counted, former Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker told “Outnumbered Overtime” on Tuesday. Whitaker was reacting to an Associated Press report which warned that the number of rejected absentee ballots in November “is projected to be significantly higher than [in] previous elections” due to a surge in mail-in balloting caused by the coronavirus pandemic. “If ballots are rejected at the same rate as during this year’s primaries, up to three times as many voters in November could be disenfranchised in key battleground states when compared to the last presidential election,” according to the AP, adding, “It could be even more pronounced in some urban areas where Democratic votes are concentrated and ballot rejection rates trended higher during this year’s primaries.” DEMOCRATS DOMINATE MAIL-IN BALLOT REQUESTS IN KEY SWING STATES President Trump reacted to the AP report, tweeting on Tuesday, "Rigged Election!” Video“We’re going to see an unprecedented number of absentee ballot requests and voting by mail this year,” Whitaker told host Harris Faulkner. “Some of these states appear prepared and have done it, places...

    During a press conference on Thursday, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) defended banning protesters on her block by enforcing laws against protests at residential homes by stating that she, her family, and her home have received threats, and “I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that they are protected.” Lightfoot also stated that she has “a right to make sure that my home is secure.” Lightfoot responded to a question on why she was enforcing the law against protests at homes that hasn’t been enforced when there were protests at the homes of other Chicago mayors by saying, “This is a different time like no other. And I’m not going to make any excuses for the fact that, given the threats that I have personally received, given the threats to my home and my family, I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that they are protected. And I make no apologies whatsoever for that. We are living in very different time[s]. And I’ve seen the threats that have come in, and I have an...
    Chicago police barred protesters from demonstrating outside the home of Mayor Lori Lightfoot. Asked about the issue at a press conference on Thursday, Lightfoot said that because of the amount of threats she receives, she sometimes needs heightened security. “I think that residents of this city, understanding the nature of the threats that we are receiving on a daily basis, understand I have a right to make sure that my home is secure,” Lightfoot said, adding, "I’m not going to make any excuses for the fact that, given the threats I have personally received, given the threats to my home and my family, I’m going to do everything I can to make sure they’re protected." In recent days, Lightfoot's city has been overwhelmed by incidents of looting. On Aug. 10, Chicago officials made the decision to raise bridges to the city's downtown in an attempt to prevent looting from occurring in the city's center. One jewelry and gift shop owner told the Chicago Tribune that city officials "have to get a hold of the city again." As...
    Getty Images If you're like many Americans, the Covid-19 pandemic has prompted a financial reality check: You haven't saved enough. A recent Bankrate survey found that 55% of Americans have regrets over their emergency savings, or lack thereof. Experts agree that having an emergency fund can help you whether you face a job loss or other unexpected event. Yet you may not know how or where to start, particularly now that the Federal Reserve has kept interest rates near zero, which means you will make less interest on your money. These tips can help you get started.Make it a habit to pay yourself firstIf you do not make saving a habit, you likely won't be able to successfully build an emergency fund. The best way to make sure you get it done: Set up a direct deposit from your paycheck into a dedicated savings account, said Greg McBride, chief financial analyst at Bankrate. "That way, the savings happens even before you roll out of bed on payday morning," McBride said. If instead you wait to put the funds in the...
    This article is reprinted by permission from NerdWallet. If you’re contacted about possible exposure to the coronavirus, make sure it’s legit. Scammers are masquerading as contact tracers, and it’s smart to verify calls or texts before giving out any information. A tracer’s job is to help contain the pandemic by reaching out to people who may be spreading the coronavirus. You could be called because your test was positive. Or perhaps someone who tested positive named you as someone they’d been in contact with, and now you need to be tested. Fraudsters follow the news Scammers read the news, too, and are trying to capitalize on tracing campaigns. They’ve even made calls appear to come from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. And yet actual tracers can’t do their work if we won’t pick up the phone. There’s no centralized testing for the U.S., and procedures and names of agencies doing tracing vary by state. You might be contacted by a state or county health department, by phone or text — there’s no single way that a genuine...

    Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf has written to the heads of tech giants, including Facebook and Twitter, urging them to make sure their platforms are not used to promote or incite riots of the kind that tore through major cities earlier this month. “In the wake of George Floyd’s death, America faced an unprecedented threat from violent extremists seeking to co-opt the tragedy of his death for illicit purposes,” Wolf said in a letter, obtained by Fox News and dated Thursday.

    DENVER (CBS4) – The Denver Public School Board continues to looks at ways to tackle its historic budget shortfall and local advocacy groups want to ensure, beyond the numbers, inequities across DPS communities are a priority. “A lot of people think equity means equal. One to one. But it doesn’t. It means the individuals that have been historically marginalized in communities, the Black community for example, they are going to need more resources in order to be able to compete and in order to be able to exist in the same system where White individuals or more affluent communities have had those resources traditionally. So it’s not equal, it’s getting them to a position to be able to exist in the system,” said Stephen Fusco, Vice President of Policy and Research for the advocacy group A+ Colorado.  On Monday, A+ Colorado sent a letter to the DPS Board asking that when making budget cuts it prioritize the students who have been undeserved. “You have White students graduating at higher rates compared to Black students. You have the Black Excellence Initiative which...
    LANCASTER, Pa. (KDKA) — As coronavirus cases and hospitalizations surge in several states, Joe Biden says priority number one is masks. In an exclusive interview Wednesday with KDKA’s Ken Rice, Biden shared ideas on masks, coronavirus and rallies. The Biden campaign invited KDKA to Lancaster for a brief interview with the presumptive Democratic nominee. After he wrapped up a campaign event, we came no closer than 8 feet apart and wore masks. Biden says we need to see more of that. “I would go back to making sure that everybody had masks, that you had PPE lined up, making sure we stockpile all the things that we need and we don’t have now. The one thing we do know, these masks make a gigantic difference. I would insist that everybody in public be wearing that mask. Anyone to reopen, it would have to make sure that they walked into a business that had masks.” Rice: Couldn’t you use your federal leverage to mandate that? Biden: Yes. Rice: Would you? Biden: Yes, I would from an executive standpoint, yes I would....

    Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden says he will use the military to escort President Donald Trump from the White House if necessary — assuming that Biden wins a 2020 matchup. What are the details? Biden told Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," that he fully believes the incumbent president will attempt to "steal this election." During the Wednesday interview, Noah asked Biden if he believed Trump would attempt to resist a defeat. "You have so many rank-and-file military personnel saying, 'Whoa, we're not a military state. This is not who we are,' " Biden said. "I promise you, I'm absolutely convinced [military officers] will escort him from the White House with great dispatch" if Trump refuses to leave. Biden also explained that his greatest concern is that Trump will attempt to engage in election fraud. "I think it's safe to say that America is expecting a really dirty election," Noah told the former vice president. "We know how Donald Trump plays in an election." Biden said...
    (CNN)Republican Sen. Mitt Romney on Sunday marched in a Washington, DC, protest after the death of George Floyd in a break from other GOP lawmakers who have largely aligned behind President Donald Trump's militarized response to nationwide unrest. Romney told a Washington Post reporter that he was participating in the demonstration "to make sure that people understand that black lives matter." The Utah senator later tweeted a photo of himself at the protest with the caption "Black Lives Matter," becoming one of the most prominent GOP figures to do so. His participation comes as Republicans -- for the most part -- have backed the President following his threats to use the military on protesters and his controversial church photo-op last Monday.Black Lives Matter. pic.twitter.com/JpXUFlxH2J— Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) June 7, 2020 Trump had declared himself "your president of law and order" as peaceful protesters just outside the White House gates were dispersed with gas, flash bangs and rubber bullets, after which Trump visited a nearby church. He remained at the boarded-up building for a matter of minutes before returning to the...
