    CNN’s Brianna Keilar wondered aloud on Wednesday whether labeling Republicans “extremist” goes far enough for Democrats because, apparently, we’ve become too desensitized to the dystopian insults already traded regularly between politicians and pundits. In an exchange with Democratic strategist and former Pete Buttigieg advisor Lis Smith, who just authored the book Any Given Tuesday: A Political Love Story, a grim picture was painted in the scenario that Republicans gain more control in the midterm elections and 2024 presidential election. “Democrats are labeling Republicans as extremists because Republicans have become a party of extremists, the lunatics have taken over the asylum. The people who are in the mainstream of the Republican Party today, 10 years ago would have been shunned by party leadership,” Smith said. “Is that messaging calling Republicans extremists enough or do Democrats need to do more than that?” Keilar asked. According to Smith, under Republican leadership, people will lose their voting rights, women won’t have healthcare, and children will live in constant fear. “We need to explain what is an extremist and what does this mean for people....
    Robert Lipsyte, Abortion – Not for Women Only It’s easy to forget just how long we’ve been waiting for Samuel Alito’s “opinion,” signaling that Roe v. Wade is going down the tubes. Back in 2019, I already took it for granted that the Supreme Court would indeed put an end to Roe and wrote then that, as I did, I couldn’t help but think “of my own involvement with abortion as a man.” My wife and I had indeed decided to abort a fetus because of a medical anomaly, even though we both wanted a child then. That was 10 years after Roe v. Wade became the law of the land. Now, I feel nothing but horror and sadness for couples like us who will indeed face such crises in an increasingly Trumpian America. And honestly, I also remember the years of my youth before Roe became the law of the land in 1973. In fact, there was a moment then when, filled with horror, I ventured into the back-alley world of illegal abortions to help someone I cared deeply...
    A divorce lawyer has claimed that marriages in which women make more money than their husbands 'don't work' because men 'need to feel valued' and it 'upsets the natural balance' of the relationship.  Katie K. Leonard, 39, from Atlanta, Georgia, has worked in family law for over a decade, and in a recent TikTok video, she shared three reasons why she thinks marriages with high-earning women tend to fail.  'Men need to feel valued, and I think that when women earn more than men, it has a tendency to emasculate men,' she said. 'I think that they are ingrained within the society to think, "I have to earn. I have to provide." Katie K. Leonard, 39, from Atlanta, Georgia, shared three reasons why she thinks marriages with high-earning women tend to fail in a recent TikTok video She argued that 'men need to feel valued' and when a woman earns more, 'it has a tendency to emasculate men' because 'they're supposed to provide' 'Men are hunters and gatherers, and they're supposed to provide, and I think that it kind of upsets...
    Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) claimed at an event earlier this week that Russia is “a communist country” with a starving population, which explains its aggression toward Ukraine. Russia ultimately invaded its neighbor to the west on Wednesday night. Speaking to the Montgomery Chamber of Commerce, Tuberville cast the Russians’ aggressive stance as being driven by the need for arable land, according to 1819 News in Alabama. “He can’t feed his people,” Tuberville said, referencing Russian President Vladimir Putin. “It’s a communist country, so he can’t feed his people, so they need more farmland.” A former KGB officer, Putin has long regarded the collapse of the Soviet Union as a disaster of the first order. “First and foremost it is worth acknowledging that the demise of the Soviet Union was the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century,” he said in 2005. This week, Putin stated that Ukraine isn’t a real country. “Radicals and nationalists, including and primarily those in Ukraine, are taking credit for having gained independence,” he said. “As we can see, this is absolutely wrong. The disintegration of...
    Hunter Biden thought prostitutes should unionize to give themselves 'protection',  they did a job 'just like everyone else', a recording from his laptop has revealed.  He made the comments in a 2018 recording of a conversation with a Chateau Marmont employee that is on the infamous laptop he lost.  It's unclear why Hunter had a recording of the conversation. In it, he said: 'You organize without even organizing in any traditional way. If you want to advertise legally you go through the unions [of which] you’re a member.  'Your dues are the fees that you pay for advertising. Whomever does this first will be running the largest union in the country,' he told an unnamed employee from Chateau Marmont in 2019.  The employee replied: 'Haha, that’s actually pretty genius!'  Hunter went on to say that the people who 'typically' needed unions were 'traditionally uneducated minorities'.  Hunter Biden thought prostitutes should unionize to give themselves 'protection', they did a job 'just like everyone else', a recording from his laptop has revealed. One feature of the proposed union was that pimps could...
    Captain Dennis Tajer has been a pilot with American for more than 20 years. He told DailyMail.com that his furloughed colleagues won't be back in the skies until August - and even then there will still be shortages An American Airlines pilot says 1,600 of his colleagues who were furloughed in October last year won't be flying again until August because they have to redo their training after so long out of the skies, worsening the staff shortage that caused the airline to cancel more than 300 flights this weekend. Captain Dennis Tajer has been a pilot with American for more than 20 years. He is also the spokesman for the Allied Pilots Association - the union which represents American's 15,000 pilots.  On Monday, Capt. Tajer told DailyMail.com that the shortages over the weekend could have been avoided if American had worked with pilots to rearrange their schedules without forcing them to overdo their hours.  He said that it is the airline's fault they haven't been able to replace the 1,600 pilots that were furloughed last year, or the...
    Senator Lindsey Graham (R- SC) spoke with Sean Hannity Tuesday night and admitted that the burgeoning GOP fracture between Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell makes him worry about the Republican’s chances in 2022. Hannity went on a tear against McConnell in the segment with Graham, over McConnell’s condemnation of Trump for the Capitol riots. Trump shot back in a statement Tuesday trashing McConnell making all sorts of wild claims, and even saying the GOP won’t win with leaders like McConnell at the helm. Graham tried to reassure Hannity that McConnell’s condemnation of Trump is a view not “widely shared” by most Republicans. He talked up how good Trump was for the GOP on policy but defended McConnell as being an important ally for four years. But them being “at each other’s throat” concerns Graham: “I’m more worried about 2022 than I’ve ever been. I don’t want to eat our own. President Trump Trump is the most consequential Republican in the party. If Mitch McConnell doesn’t understand that, he’s missing a lot… We need to knock this off. Kevin McCarthy is...
    Dr Anthony Fauci has urged Congress to pass Joe Biden's Covid relief bill because US schools 'need more resources' to re-open safely after months of virus-enforced closures.  The nation's top infectious disease expert said re-opening schools 'can be done' but told ABC's George Stephanopoulos that school districts 'really do need more resources'.   'That's the reason why the national relief act that we're talking about getting passed - we need that,' Fauci said, as Democrats in Congress try to push through $130billion in funding to help schools upgrade buildings and buy protective gear.  'Obviously it's not a perfect situation, but it's really important to get the children back to school in as safe a way as possible,' Fauci said. 'Safe for the children, but also safe for the teachers and the other educators.'  Dr Anthony Fauci, pictured, has called on Congress to pass Joe Biden's Covid relief package which contains $130billion in funding for schools  Fauci's comments came after the CDC said on Friday that in-person schooling can resume safely with masks, social distancing and other strategies.  But teachers' unions...

    Americans can’t follow through with diets or exercise without someone to hold them accountable, according to new research. The survey of 2,000 Americans found 53 percent would fail a diet or exercise routine if they pursued these goals alone. 4A new study found 53 percent of Americans would fail at a new diet or exercise plan if they had to go it aloneCredit: Getty Images - Getty 4Buddy systems seem to increase the likelihood that Americans will stick to healthy routines, according to the studyCredit: Getty Images - Getty It’s no surprise then that 71 percent are more likely to follow through with these goals if they have someone to hold them accountable. Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Nutrisystem, the survey found that just over four in 10 respondents also said they’re more likely to start a healthy habit when partnered with a friend or loved one as opposed to on their own. This inspiration to start a healthy habit seems to have been amplified during quarantine as well, as 55 percent shared that hunkering down at home due to...
    CNN contributor Michael Smerconish told host Wolf Blitzer on Sunday that the vice presidential debate set for October 7 is “all the more” needed because “both of the presidential candidates are older men.” “What about Wednesday night,” asked Blitzer, “the vice presidential debate is supposed to take place. You think it should?” “I think that it should,” Smerconish replied. “I think they should be socially distant. I think that the crowd should act in a different fashion than they treated in the prior debate. I like the idea of them being further apart than we saw Vice President Biden and President Trump, but frankly, I have to say this, Wolf, there is all the more reason, I think, we need to see the two vice presidential candidates.” He continued, “I want to be delicate about this, but both of the presidential candidates are older men. And consequently, we need to take a look and make sure that whomever is going to be the number two is equipped for the responsibilities of that top job.” Former Vice President Joe Biden,...
    His latest fundraising request also claims that all contributions to his campaign 'will be 700%-MATCHED!' Donald Trump begged supporters Friday to send him more money, warning that his campaign is way behind its fundraising targets. "We need to make sure we have the resources to combat their LIES, which is why I’m coming to you now with a critical request," Trump said in his email solicitation. "We’re well behind our September pace so we need you to step up RIGHT NOW but we also need to break a fundraising record on Debate Day to beat Joe Biden.” The request comes at a tough time for Trump's campaign. Though Trump has raised a historic amount of money — about $1.3 billion as of early September — it squandered a massive cash advantage on some questionable spending.
    Kathy Schneider worked as a Dallas County election clerk in 2018, but out of concern about the coronavirus, she’s choosing not to this year. “I am 64 and really not interested in exposing myself to coronavirus any more than I need to do,” Schneider said. Instead, she’s volunteering as a poll watcher for the Democratic party, which she can do outdoors and distanced in a parking lot. Texas is preparing for a general election for which election officials are expecting unprecedented turnout — and unprecedented demand for election workers. The general election will require local election officials to hire more election clerks because of an extended early voting period, new cleaning and disinfection protocols, and expectations that more people will use curbside voting and mail-in ballots. Historically, elections have been staffed by older retirees, a demographic that is particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus. A lack of people willing to work because of the pandemic caused some Texas’ counties to close down polling locations during the July primary runoffs. And some officials are concerned that could happen again this fall. What...
    Avengers star Chris Evans has honored a little boy who saved his sister from being ravaged by a charging dog, sending him a sweet video message and vowing to send him a Captain America shield. Evans - who plays the superhero in Marvels movies - recorded a clip for Bridger Walker after news spread of how the child from Cheyenne, Wyoming put himself in between his sibling and the animal, leading to him getting mauled and needing 90 stitches.   'I read your story, I saw what you did. I’m sure you’ve heard this a bunch of times over the last couple of days, but let me be the first one to tell you, Pal, you’re a hero,' he said.  'What you did was so brave and so selfless. Your sister is so lucky to have you as a big brother. Your parents must be so proud of you.'    Footage posted to social media on Wednesday showed Bridger's pleased reaction as the famous face addressed him. ‘Get this man a shield.’
